TOPEKA. Kans.. Sept. 22.— The Smith
County officers have not yet eucee'eded In ap prehending Thomas Madison, the supposed murderer of three women In that county last Tuesday night. The tackling o'f criminals calls for many qualities, but it is after the arrest of a suspected criminal, says T. P.'s Weekly, that the most subtle part of the French detective's art is called into play. The French authorities do not consider a case against an accused man complete, unless he has actually confessed his guilt, and it is to the agents of the Surete that the magistrates look to obtain this conclusive proof. A detective makes' friends with the prisoner, pretends to sympathize with him In his* trouble and tells him that it .will certainly ease his mind if he makes a clean breast of the whole affair. Or he works on his feelings by kindness. It is usual at the Surete to give the prisoner a good lunch and to take advantage of his resultant expanslveness to get him to talk. It may be remarked that though prisoners are led to believe that their confession will be taken into account by the Judges and Jury in apportioning sen tence, In practice the contrary is the case. The man who confesses is lost. This fact prompted' a notorious murderer named Avinain to address to the public at his execution this supreme recommendation, "Gentlemen, never confess!" — Baltimore Herald.

He is accused of having: set fire to his barber shop at 415% Powell street on the morning of September 12. Flames were discovered in two separate rooms and there was evidence that coal oil had been plentifully utilized. The Judge in holding the defendant said: "It was mv intention at first to make the bonds $10,000, but I think $5000 is enough. The crime is a flagrant one, as the defendant must have known that the chances were that sixteen lives might have been sacrificed by his act, that num ber of people having been asleep at the time in the lodging-house above his shop. Besides, as the buildings In that block are all built close together there is no saying what the damage might have been if the fire had not been discovered in time."

Telluride Miners to Secede. ALAMEDA. Sept. 22.— With all the dls '¦ cussions of the railroad franchises at cau : cuses, conferences, meetings and mass meetings, there are still those who be lieve that certain phases of the agitation have not yet been brought out and among the residents holding that view are a number of the Park street business men not affiliated with the Board of Trade. Twelve of these to-day issued the fol lowing call for a meeting of the mer chants and tradesmen of Alameda: We, the undersigned merchants and trades men in the city of Alameda, believing that an erroneous impression prevails among our fel low-citizens respecting our attitude on tha questions before our City Trustees at this time, and desiring to correct said false Im pression as soon as possible, hereby request the merchants and tradesmen of our city to meet in Eureka Hall, in the Masonic Temple, corner of Park street and Alameda avenue, on Thursday, the 24th inat.. at 8 o'clock p. "m. J. J. Konlgshofer, F. Binder. H. SI liram ttian. L Durein. A. O. Gott, Olson & Co.. A. .Victors. E. D. Judd. J. E. Baker, J. W. Hew, G. Schaeffer. J. B. Vosburgh Company. In the notice the "questions before our City Trustees" means the two applica tions for franchises for local steam roads filed by the Southen Pacific Company with the municipal legislators. The signers of the call feel that much has been said and done in their name during the agi tation that they were not responsible for and in no way approved. Their purpose is to dispel the general Impression that a majority of the merchants of Alameda are in accord with the tactics adopted by the Board of Trade in its fight against the granting of the franchises to the Southern Pacific Company and with the treatment of the City Trustees by that organization. , It was Professor Frank Soule's turn to stand the grill of an attorney's cross examination into his private affairs to day. In the hearine of his petition to be relieved of paying $75 a month ali mony it has been his former wife, so far, who has been on the stand in an en deavor to resist his plea that she is in no need of the money. In answer to questions Professor Soule stated that his salary is $275 a month, and that since ISM $75 a month of this has pone toward the support of his chil dren. He bought a house for $4500 ajid still owes $1500 on it. He said he has had to economize to live on $200; that he has to limit himself in the purchase of books he needs in connection with his profession. He denied that part of the answer to his petition where the attor ney for Mrs. Soule stated that he had agreed to pay his wife $75 a month ali mony for tho remainder of her life in consideration cf her relinquishing her right to certain property claimed by both of them. He said that the first he had heard of such an agreement was when he read it in the answer to his petition. He said that the $75 a month had come voluntarily from him at the suggestion of his attorney, who told him he ought to do somethinc for his children, but that there never had been any agree ment to this effect and that he had never talked to any one on the subject except his attorny. Professor Soule was subjected to a rigid cross-examination on this point, but this part of the testimony the attorney for Mrs. Soule was unable to change.

The Orthodox Congregation of Beth Jacob held fitting services for the new year yesterday and to-day. The Jewish New Year, or Rosh Ho shana, the observance of which was be gun last night, was continued this morn ing by special devotional services at the First Hebrew Congregation. . ' Rabbi M. Kriedlander delivered a ser mon on "Tho Kingdom of God." The rabbi described the ancient cus tcms cf the Hebrew .race and dwelt at length upon the history of the people and the persecutions which have been heaped upon them by the races of the earth. In brief he said: • The highest and grfatest significance of Ju daism ia the acknowledgment of the kingdom of God. The new year to the Jew is a declara tion and expression of his faith. In celebrat ing this day the .Jew declares that God is su preme sovereign of the universe, tho heaven above and the earth below. He acknowledges C!cd as the father, ruler end guiding power of mail's destiny. In that which is symbolized by the new year rests the entire doctrine of Judaism. Th>s Jew's btllet is in God. He denies the philos ophy of the eternity of matter. He believes In the design and purpose of the Supreme Being, In fatherhood and brotherhood. He declares his belief in the harmony of purpose of nature and history. In connection with the exercises an im pressive musical service was given under the direction of Miss Virgrinie de Fremery. The choir which furnished the music to day was composed of: Sopranos, Miss Mary C. Williams, Mrs. Carrie Brown Dexter; altos. Mrs. Grace Carroll Elliott, Miss Feldheim; tenors: E. D.

PAUL, Sept. 22.— Negotiations be tween the officials of tho Great Northern and the firemen and engineers are prac tically at a standstill, as the officials of tho road have denied the requests of the men and rescinded grants made at pre vious meetings. Grand Master Hanrahan of the Locomotive Firemen and J. J. Stone, grand chief of the Brotherhood of Engineers, held a conference this after noon with the railroad officials. The meeting between the labor leaders and the general manager and general super intendent of the Great Northern did not develop any marked change in the situa tion. None of those taking part in the negotiations would make any formal statement as to the status of affairs fur ther than to say that there would be a resumption of negotiations to-morrow morning. 1$ is understood, however, from authoritative sources that the prospects for a peaceful settlement are much bright er to-night than they were considered be fore this afternoon's conference. The ac tion of the company officials in with drawing their assent to the amendments to the rules previously granted at the request of the grievance committee an gered tha men and some of them were in favor of taking an immediate poll of the locals on the auestion of a strike. The presence of the grand officers, how ever, served to relieve the tension and negotiations were resumed, and it is said a disposition is shown to reach a peaceful compromise. No detailed statement of what the men ask could be obtained either from the company officials or from the men them selves. Their demands comprise, how ever, both a new wage schedule and sev eral changes in the working rules. In conclusion, he writes that he hopes to retain the confidence of his constituents at the general election which "cannot be far distant" Regarding retaliation and fiscal free dom, Elliot agrees with Premier Balfour's pamphlet that the Government should be free to consider cases as they arise on their merits and take such action as it considers right, subject to the approval of Parliament. LONDON, Sept. 22.— Premier Balfour Is apparently meeting considerable difficulty in the task of reconstructing his Cabinet. It is said that Wyndham has been offered the choice of several portfolios, but has decided to remain Chief Secretary for Ireland. , - Owing' to the decision that the Fifth and Sixth Army Corps of War Secretary Brodrick's scheme shall not be constitut ed, because of the lack of necessary re cruits, it is reported that General Hunter, who was nominated for the command of the Sixth Corps, Is to be transferred to India, to command either the Bombay or Madras district. This has led to renewed rumors that General Hunter will succeed Lord Kitchener as 'commander in chief in India and that the latter will be called home to succeed Brodrick as. Secretary of War. All this, however. Is merly speculation. Much public feeling has been displayed against appointing Brodrick to the India office and it is believed the difficulty cen ters in providing a Secretary for War and a Secretary for India. Arthur D. Elliot, who has just resigned the Financial Secretaryship of the Treas ury because of his disagreement with Premier Balfour's finance views, writing to one of his constituents in Durham City, says he is in complete agreement with the free trade views of ex-Chancel lor of the Exchequer Ritchie, who found it impossible to. hold office any longer in a Government which is tending steadily toward a policy of protection. He could not remain in office, he says, without an entire loss of self-respect. The time has arrived, he continues, when the electors must decide for or against the policy of taxing imports of food which, though de ferred for the moment, will be the ulti mate issue. ROSH H0SHANA KEPT BY JEWS Colonel Morley wa3 about fifty years of age and had a wife and six children, one of whom, a son, is attending college at Chester, Pa. Morley came to Buena Vista in 1849. slnee which time he has been prominently identified with the smelter and mining industries In the district. From the position of the bodies when found it appeared that Abrahamson had been carrying Morley after he lost con sciousness and had made a desperate struggle to reach fresh air with his hu man load. In all probability .Abrahamson could have saved himself had ho not made this heroic effort to rescue his companion. BUENA VISTA, Colo., Sept. 22.— Colonel B. F. Morley, manager of the Buena Vista smelter and of the Mary Murphy mine at Romley, and Adolph Abrahamson, superintendent of the mine.- were killed by foul air when making an inspection of the mine workings last night. Their bodies were recovered to-day. It is supposed that the air In the mine had been vitiated by powder gas. The property is not operated at night and there were no other men in the mine when Morley and Abrahamson were making their tour of inspection which resulted fatally. WILL DENOUNCE BOARD OF TRADE "The Jews are a poor people in spite of the popular idea to the contrary, but from far and near are coming contributions to the fund for redeeming the land of their fathers. "If Christ should come again." said Dr. Levine, "the Jews would certainly not ac cept him. Dr. Hirsch of Chicago is mis taken, because the Jewish world would look upon Jesus in the flesh to-day Just as they did In old Judea nineteen hundred years ago. Wo are a conservative peo ple and always have been. Moses was stoned and only received by the people of Palestine after many protestations.

The Jewish church is not grow ing—except in America by immigration. We do not proselyte and we do not wel come converts. The Semitic and Aryan races are apart and can never fuse.

We want some spot upon the earth which we can own and govern— some refuge for our persecuted and oppressed. Palestine Is our home, the best of all lands to us, and we are going in the end to possess it as we did in the days of old. PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 22.-In an Inter view the Rev. Dr. David Levine. a rabbi of New York, took emphatic exception to the recently published statement of Dr. Hirsch of Chicago, who said that the Jews to-day would accept Christ were he to return to earth.

Dr. Dille said: •"Our first grounds for objection are that women ar.d girls— young girls— are al lowed to freauent this resort Former Chief of Police Crowley of San Francisco one* told me that the young girls who frequent these resorts are the recruits of the gTeat army of wayward women. They are taken into these places.- plied with liquor and sometimes drugged and in time fall Into paths cf vice. "The resort is on a thoroughfare trav eled by pupils of the High School and the congregations of some of our leading churches, and this pretest is 6lgned by a majority of the property owners in that block. For these reasons we ask that the resort be closed." The protest presented last night by Dr. Dille bears the names of most cf the property owners ar.d tenants in the block In which the resort Is located. The Rev. E. R. DIHe, pastor of the First Methodist Church, has filed a pro test with the City Council against the re eort on Twelfth street, rear Broadway, known ts tha Cafe Bohemia, charging that" it Is frequented by women and young girls. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 111S Broadway, Sept 22. Professor Magee was awakened at the very darkest hour this morning by a nole« in the yard just beneath his win dow. Securing hla pistol, he hurried to the window and looked down upon two men sitting on the fence. The fence was near a kitchen window and it was evident the fellows were about to force their way into the house. But they didn't get that far. for Just then Professor Magee leveled his pistol at them and called upon them to explain their presence. The men re plied that they had got into the wrong place by mistake and without any unnec essary waste of time slunk off into the gloom.

Her resonant voice soeirhded to good advantage In the difficult double part of Viola and Catsario. Her counter part, Sebastian, brother of Viola, was cleverly acted by Mrs. C. Arthur Collins. Ben Greet, however, was the favorite with the audience. His portrayal of the pomp ous conceit of Malvollo drew forth rounds of merited applause. Scarcely second to the hit made by Ben Greet was the suc cess scored by Robert Smiley as Sir Toby Belch. Two scenes In the play stood out most prominently for their eleven: execution. The first was that in Olivia's home, when Sir Tobv and Sir Andrew, deep in their cups, disturbed the household and brought forth Malvollo clad in night attire. The second was at the gathering of the mirth ful conspirators after the ruse with the forged letter had been successfully work ed on Malvollo. The Joy and laughter of the players in the latter scene proved so contagious that the laughter and ap plause of the audience quite drowned the mock mirth of the actors. The cast of characters was as follows: Duke Orslne, John Sayer Crawley: Sebastian. Beatrice "Whitney; Antonio, Cllve- Currlo; Val entine. Mildred Jones; Curao. Cecilia Griffith: Blr Toby Belch. Robert Smiley; Sir Andrew Agruecheek, Robert Halrord Forster: Malvollo. Ben Greet; Fabian, C. Arthur Collins; Feste, a clown. Dallas Anderson; a priest, 8. H. Goodwyn; Olivia. Alys Rees; Viola. Constance Crawley; Maria. Margaret Bucklln. At the completion of the play the audi ence rose and applauded continuously un til the players reappeared. Ben Greet in thanking the assemblage said: "I want to thank you heartily on be half of myself, my company and Mr. Frohman for the royal welcome extended us, and I commend Stanford University in its endeavor to foster the drama." This was the first production on tne coast of "Twelfth Night" by ths Proh man company. "Twelfth Night" was given In Its entirety as written by Shake speare, and the Idea of the Elizabethan stage was carried out to the letter. The action was continuous; at no time did the curtain intervene to show the change of scene. The orchestra, dressed In Elizabethan costumes, and stationed In tho balcony, filled In the breaks ta the action with music in keeping with tho staging of the play. The stage Itself appeared the same in the foreground as In "Everyman," but In the back tapestries of ancient pattern supplanted the monastery walls used in the morality play. Two "Beef-eaters." as they are called, dressed in red and carry ing battle-axes, stood guard at the end of tho stage. STAFFORD UNIVERSITY. Sept. 72.— In striking contrast to the solemnity of laA night's production of "Everyman" by Ben Greet's company was the lightness of "Twelfth Night," presented by the tame players in Assembly Hall to-night. Though the attendance was perhaps smaller than at tho presentation of "Everyman," yet the reception accorded "Twelfth Night" was fully as enthusias tic as that given to the morality play and was evidenced by the full measure of laughter and applause that the comedy drew forth. Special Dispatch to Th« Call. Ideas of Elizabethan Times parried Out to the Letter. Comedy Wins Abundant Applause on Stan ford Stage.
