JUDOCE NOYES "MAY BE REMOVED BY THE PRESIDENT. ITS POLITICAL EFFECTS San Franciseo Decision May Cause New Deal Politically in North Dakota. Minneapolis, Feb. 12-A special to the Tribune from Washington says: The general sentiment among those who are interested in the Cape Nome mining scandals is that Judge Arthur 'H. Noyes will be removed by the president if he does not resign. It was said at the department of justice today that impeachment pro ceedings would not be necessary, as the president had full power to act. There was talk this morning of a re vival of the congressional investiga tions which were so sensationally started sometime ago in both branches of congress, but it is not at all likely that anything will be done on that line, as the decision rendered yester day in San Francisco by judges who stand high is regarded here as a sub stantial victory for the anti-Noyes McKenzie element. Frank B. Kellogg, who was in San Francisco last October, when Judge Morrow first ordered McKenzie before him for contempt, and appeared as attorney for McKenzie, is now in Washington. He inclines to the opinion that there was an appeal in McKenzie's case to the supreme court, in fact, a writ of certiorari is now pending before that tribunal on the question of jurisdiction and the right of Judge Morrow to order McKenzie before him. In a political way the decision at San Francisco will have a marked effect on the politics of North Dakota. McKenzie has had very strong back ing in that state by the republicans and Senator Hansbrough has stood by him faithfully. If the San Francisco ver dict stands it means a new deal in North Dakota. George H. Sullivan of Stillwater, who is here, says that he has a brother who has a mining claim ad joining that of the now famous Mc Kenzie property. Sullivan insists that 'the appointment of McKenzie was un warranted. It is further stated that Clerk of Court Dickey was not dis charged by Judge Noyes, but that he resisned voluntarily. THEY REMAIN CLOSED Topeka Saloons Shut Down and Fixtures Are Being Removed. Topeka, Feb. 12-The local liquor situation is practically unchanged to day. The saloon men are keeping under cover and their doors are se curely locked. They apparently mean to keep them closed and preparations are being made to remove bars and fixtures. Last night a few bars were removed and stored away. All bartenders are out of work and the saloon men are standing around talking over the situa tion. Beer wagons have stopped their usual rounds. "I think that all'joints' were closed last night," said Chief Stahl today. "All that I visited were quiet. I did not go across the river. There was talk that one or two were running, but if so they were upstairs and not where they could be easily found. ' "The committee seems to be well pleased and thinks that the 'jointists' are thoroughly cowed. People don't let me in on all news, and I do not get anything definite, *but I think I .have a better chance to know what is going on than some people, and I be lieve there is an organization of from 800 to 1,000 persons with officers from colonel down to corporals, ready to move on the saloons if they do not close up. MEETS WITH FROST Kansas Saloon Wrecker's Recep. tion by Chicago Is De cidedly Chilly. Chicago, Feb. 12-Mrs. Carrie Na tion arrived in Chicago at 8:40 to night,coming over the Rock Islan road and within 15 minutes afte reaching the city was facing a some what diminutive audience gatherec u.nder the auspices of the national W 0, T. U. in Willard halL On her trip toward Chicago she de a number of short addresse the rear end of the car, speak nt-neatly every station where a~paiade. .eoming was marked by n ltuodent, contrary to the ei of the ladies who had in to visit Chicago. Durin - = a $mittee called upon Chic of Police Kipley and asked him to de tail a strong force of detectives to await Mrs. Nation's arrival at the depot, a.sn-ing him that unless she was fully p;.otected she would be in danger from the mob which was at the depot. The chief laughed and said he guessed there would be no danger to the lady and if he told the policeman on the beat to look in about train time it would be sufficient. The ladies were positive and the chief finally relented sufficiently to promise one lone officer who would, he declared, have nothing to do. Ev ents proved that the chief was right and the ladies withdrew. A very small crowd was at the depot and it was for the most part composed of members of the reception committee. The reception of Mrs. Nation oc casioned no excitement whatever and provoked but little curiosity among people in the depot. She entered her carriage at once and was driven rapid ly to Willard hall, five squares distant. After giving, a history of the tem perance work in Kansas, Mrs. Nation denounced the sale of liquor in Chi cago and asked all who were in sym pathy with her to go out with her and destroy the saloons, as they were illegal. "While in Chicago I will not at tempt to smash any saloons,," she said, "bunt tomorrow in company with two polhcemen I intend to visit as many of thbse places as possible and will invite the saloon keepers to come to Willard hall and hear what I have to say about the wickedness of selling liquor. I will also visit Mayor Har rison and Chief of Police Kipley to morrow and tell them what I think of city officials who will allow so many dives and low resorts to run as prevails in Chicago. If you can't get rid of those crime breeding places by peaceable means, why, I say use force. All you women and men who believe in God and our cause arm yourselves and go out and smash every one of those hell holes that you can find. Don't be afraid; the Lord is on our side and will take care of you, no matter whether you get arrested or not. " Mrs. Nation will leave here tomor row night for Topeka to stand trial for saloon smashing. CETTING NEAR HOME Mrs. Nation Finds Grandson Managing Tough ,"Joint" in Chicago. Chicago, Feb. 13-Mrs. Nation left for Topeka tonight. Before leaving Chicago she announced that as soon as she had "cleaned up things" at home, she would come back here, and if things were not properly taken care of by the authorities, she and her friends would take matters into their own hands, and to use her own expression, "We will make souvenirs." Her meeting with saloonkeepers, which she announced that she would carry out, did not materialize, and in default of having them for an audi ence she went once more to the saloon at 290 State street, which she visited last night, and in which her grandson is manager, and delivered a talk to the people she found there. It was a motley throng, embracing all classes. Mrs. Nation mounted a table and for 15 minutes talked with great energy, urging her hearers to abandon the use and sale of liquor, and denouncing in the most unmeas ured terms all those who permitted its sale anywhere in the city. As she left the place she went up to a woman who possessed a rich, black eye and remarked: "My! My! What a pity. Who gave that to you?" "You would better ask your grand son who gave it to me. He knows as much about the giving of it as I do." To this Mrs. Nation made no reply but hastened out to her carriage. This afternoon she addressed 1,500 - people at Willard hall, and then vis iited a Turkish bath establishment. Another meeting was held tonight at Willard hall. 5 TAKING NEW TACK.

The sundry civil bill was taken up when the session opened and Bell of Colorado, a member of the appropria tions committee, took the floor with a speech against "the unprecedented ex travagance of the present congress." He said it was time the people became alarmed at the rapid growth of ex penditures. So callous had congress become to vast increases in the approp riations, he said, that it was considered almost disreputable to call attention to the extravagance of the government. He produced figures to show that in a single decade the per capita cost of carrying on the governmental machin ery had increased from $4.75 to over $10. W. L. Yancy, Paducah, Ky., writes: "I had a severe case of kidney disease and three of the best physicians in southern Kentucky treated me without success. I was induced to try Foley'e Kidney Cure.
