There wait report in town thii
morning that lot of people bad
been drowned in a wreck on the
second section of Santa Fe Number
fl, which should bare reached here
last night. The only definite re
port that could be obtained here to
day was that one child had been
drowned, and other passengers in
jured. A. man who came in from
the east today claims tht he talked
with a passenger who escaped from
the wreck, and who got out by climb
ing through a, window from a car
that was nearly filled with water.
Thia man stated, it is said, that no
one knew how many had been
drowned. What the facts are can
fiotbelearuel here today, but the
impression is that not many lives
The wreck was caused by high
water. There was a great flood from
Topeka south yesterday. , None of
the passenger trains oenld ran over
the road from Topeka to Emporia
yesterday afternoon. They were
routed over the Holiday-Emporia
cut-off. The second section ,No 5,
wan caught in the flood between
Osage City and Quenemo, and it is
understood that some of the coaches
were overturned in the water.
The line is open this evening it is
reported, and the trains will proba
bly, be running on the usual time
from now on.
Meeting Last Night Adjourned Without Any
v Action On the Water Works Question
The city couooil met last nighty
and transacted the regular routine of
business for the month. Not all of
the members were present, and the
regular meeting kept the counoit
busy until a Into tmur, so that an ad
journment was Uken until tonight to
consider the waterworks proposition.
The city has been doing a lot of
work putting in crossings, in prepar
ation for Free Delivery, and the past
month has been an expensive one,
probably the most expensive of the
The waterworks matter looks like
something of a tie-up. It ia under
stood that the company will not ac
cept less than $35,000 for the part of
the system the council wants to bay.
It is also understood that the oouuoil
will not pay more than $30,000 for

usual Fourth of July meeting, when
it annually warms up the truck before
the regular fall races.
The entries were not large Monday
afternoon, but the races were inter
esting. The first was the 2:35 pace,
half mile for $75 purse, on by Don
danvillo's Marie in 1:09. Prongh's
"Sbipshewana King ' was second and
"Babe Wilkinson" third.
The Free-For-AH Face, half mile,
for $75 purse, was won by Dondan-
ville's "Heliouo," in 1:06, best time.
"Chief Vesuvioua" was second and

made one proposition to leave the
value of the plant to three competent
engineers one to be selected by the
company, one by the city and the
other by these two. It is possible
that a deal may be made npon the
last basis. No one seems to know
just now how the council stands as
a body on this deal. It appears
certain that the maj rity favor mun
icipal ownership, and it is believed
that the maj ority would vote to buy
the present system for $30,0(70. The
company evidently has legal advice
that the plant must be bought to
annul the franchise, while at least a
part of the councilmen believe that
the company has no rights whatever.
This part of the matter will have to
be settled in the courts of course,
unless the company and the council
get together on some sort of a deal.
CUN CLUB HANDICAP
The three-eights mile dash was
won by "Mamie Marsh,,' owned bj
Mr. Tincher, of Plains; "Buster
Brown," owned by F. Bailey, of

The fall races here will begin August
21th. Garden City's date will be the
week before that, and Kinsley will
follow Dodge City, and the week after
Kinsley will be taken by Larned.
The Association expect n good Btring
of horses over this circuit.

like the first Since that time, Mr.
Keith claims he has been hunting
