Will Be neld Responsible hy the Ty-
pothctae for All Damnges Done
by Strikers.
Chief of Polled Hayes was served with
notice yesterday that the city would bo
held liable for all damages to property or
persons "arising out of the present dinl
cu'ties between the Typothetae and the
printers. It read as follows:
Kansas City. Mo.. Dec 9. 1SS9.
John Hayes, Esq , Chief of Police. Kansas City. Mo.
Dear Sir: Permit me to say that there can be no
question or doubt that the personal violence resorted
to recently, ana growing out 01 me present tine.
as also the damage to property which happened last
evening at the firm ot Burd & Fletcher, on West
Sixth street. Is due to the fact of IneOclent police
protection, because the police do not and will not
disperse the crowds which congregate upon the
streets and highways of this city and about the
places of business of employing printers, all In viola
tion ot the ordinances of this city. We hate several
times urged upon the officials the necessity for action
on their part.
I can only say. now and finally, that this city will
be held responsible for all damages to property, as
well as damage to persons, growing out of the In
efficient police protection. Very respectfully yours,
Last evening Chief Hayes sent a detail
of ten patrolmen under command of Ser
geant T. J. Young, to Burd & Fletcher's
plant, at 12S West Sixth street. The officers
arrived on the scene about 5 o'clock, but
their uresence was en ouch to prevent any
conflict. There was no large crowd of
strikers or sympathizers, there being per
haps a half dozen union printers. The men
quit tneir work about 6 o clock, ana wnen
they came out of the shop no one offered
to approach them, and the men went to
their respective boarding houses.
At 8:43 Lieutenant Weber detailed two
officers to go to the shop, as the men were
working overtime, mere was no trouble
reported by the officers.
Printers Answer Typothetne.
The striking printers Issued a lengthy statement
yesterday In which they declared themselves satlsned
with the progress of the strike. They repudiate as
saults on non-union men. arguing that such a course
would alienate public sympathy and prevent access
to non-union men. They hold the Typothetae respon
sible for the assaults. It was stated vestcrday that
one of the members ot the Typothetae was approached
yesterday by a local gang politician, who promised
that If ho would withdraw from the Typotheate the
suit to dissolve the lattervbrought by the attorney
general would be withdrawn as to this member.
Most Mutilate Some Stamps.
A new order -was received from the commissioner
of internal revenue at Washington, concerning the
cancellation of documentary war stamps of high
denomination, at the local office yesterday. The
order Is that In all rases where a documentary
stamp of the denomination of 10 cents or larger
shall be used, the person using it snail, in aaaition
to writing or stamping thereon with Ink the 'Initials
of his name and the date when affized, mutilate the
stamp by cutting three parallel Incisions lengthwise
through the stamp, beginning not more than one
fourth of an inch from one end ot the stamp and
extending to within one-fourth ot an Inch of the
other end.
The order does not rerer to the stamps uea on
checks, drafts or telegrams, but to those ued on
large notes and other Instruments. The rule goes
into effect December 13.
The St. Paul's Episcopal church In Kan
sas City, Kas., Is In the hands of Rev. Mr.
John F. von Herrlich, who has assumed
the pulpit with the determination of build
ing up the church, enlarging its member
ship and spreading the Episcopalian doc
tilne In the metropolis. The church has
experienced many unpleasant happenings
during the past few years, and has worked
under difficulties, and this fact alone was
one of the principal inducements that
caused the present rector to accept the call
to,the local church. He had more flatter
ing offers from other cities, but declined
them all in order to try to place the St.
Paul's church on tho basis on which it
formerly stood.
The last charge of Rev. Mr. von Herr-j
Hch was at Wichita, Kas., where he suc
ceeded in raising a debt against the church
in that city amounting to $20,000. The lo
cal church has a small debt hanging over
It. and the efforts of other rectors have
failed to improve the financial condition
of the church. Trivial factional differences
existed which former rectors were unable
to straichten out. However, the new min
ister has invaded the local field with a
determination to Harmonize tne memoers
of the church and make It what it should
ue. He lias been well received by the con
Eregatlon. and will doubtless be given the
hearty support of a major portion of the
membership in building up the church and
widening its field.
The members of the church gathered In
Union Club hall last night for the purpose
of tenderlnir the rector and his wife a
formal reception. A very enjoyable time
was had by all present until a late hour.
Rev. and Mrs. von Herrlich proved to be
the most companionable people, and the
memoers wero HDeral in tneir congratula
tions upon being so fortunate in getting
such a man as Mr. von Herrlich as their
rector. Mr. and Mrs. von Herrlich be
came well acquainted with tho members
of the church, and before the festivities
closed they all practically agreed to render
every possible assistance in building up
the church and raising its debt.
Rev. Mr. von Herrlich is a graduate of
tho Columbia Law college, with a degree
of LL. B., and is also a graduate of the
Episcopal General Theological seminary, ot
New York. He Is a man of large experi
ences In the practical side of life; holds
advanced ideas, which find a place In his
teaching of the Scripture and preaching
without apology. He is a pulpit orator ot
unusual force and power, refined and cul
tured. He is a man of untiring energy,
having, by his own efforts, while rector of
the Irving Memorial church, Tarrytown,
If. T., paid off a debt of $23,000; while rec
tor of the St,' Paul's church, at Sacra
mento, Cal., ho raised a debt of $14,000
against that church; at Wichita, Kas., he
succeeded in paying off a debt against that
church amounting to $20,000, and comes to
this city well recommended as a church
Among the numerous things that Rev.
Mr. von Herrlich -has suggested to tho
local church Is the erection of a handsome
guild hall and the improvement of the
church property. He proposes to have the
St. Paul's church repaired and improved
until it will present as pretty appearance
as any church In the city. He enters upon
his work here with the best feeling among
tho members ot the church, and under his
guidance it Is predicted that St. Paul's
will bo placed among the strong organiza
tions of the city.
Ballet Enters the Right Breast of the
Well Known Character, but
He 3Iny Recover.
Harve Pullmen was shot last night and
probably fatally wounded while In a fight
by John Bartlett, at 736 Armstrong avenue,
Kansas City. Kas. The bullet entered the
breastL on theright'1 sideband from "'the
front. Dr. J. L. B. Eager dressed the
wound. He said there was a possibility
that Pullem may recover.
There had been bad blood between the
families of the Puliems and Bartletts and
last night, Bartlett, who is a cripple, call
ed on the police for protection and relief
from Pullem, who he said was constantly
badgering him. As he was returning to his
home at 736 Armstrong avenue, at S o'clock
he was met by Pullem and Richard Broom
field, who were quarreling. At the sight
of Bartlett Pullem seized a heavy board
and started after him. Broomlield fired a
pistol for the purpose, he said, of frighten
ing Pullem. The shot fired by Broomlield
entered Pullem's right leg.
Pullem continued after Bartlett, who was
backing away. Broomlield handed the
smoking revolver to Bartlett, who aimed
it at his assailant. At this moment Bart
lett says he felt a heavy blow and knew
nothing till he was on the police station.
He was taken to Bethany hospital and
Dr. Eager, the police surgeon, attended
him. The bullet In the breast was found
but the one in the leg was not located.
The wounded man's condition at a late
hour last night was such as to Incline the
doctor to believe it possible for him to re
cover. Harve Pullem, the wounded man, is one
ot the best known characters in Wyan
dotte. He is ever ready to fight if he
fancies he has a grievance. His name oc
curs more often on the police docket than
that of any other man. He ekes out an
existence by fishing and trucking.

It "Will Nominate a Presidential
Ticket Next Year by
Direct Vote.
COLUMBUS, O., Dec 9. The Union Re
form party will nominate, by direct vote,
a presidential ticket in 1900 on the estab
lished platform of the party, which con
sists ot a single plank, advocating the in
itiative and referendum method for all leg
islation, both state and national. This de
cision was reached to-day by the national
executive committee of the party at a con
ference in this city with the Ohio state
executive committee. The representatives
of the national committee present were:
R. S. Thompson, chairman, Ohio: J. M.
Dunlap, Franklin, Ind.; E. A. Richelberger,
secretary, Baltimore: F. A. Naiile, Phil
adelphia, and W. J. Seelye, Worcester.
A proposition to consider the advisabil
ity of fusion with tho Democratic party on
presidential candidates was promptly de
feated as was also a suggestion to en
large the platform of the party. It was
decided to nominate state tickets In every
stnt where nn organization can be ef
fected. Conventions for the nomination of
candidates will be abolished, the national
committee recommending thnt hereafter
all candidates, according to the principles
of the party, be chosen by direct vote of
the party membership. This rule will ap
ply to the national ticket and to state and
county tickets in Ohio, at least. The pri
mary plan ot nominations is recommended
for other states. The union reform party
had state tickets this fall in Ohio. Mary
land and Pennsylvania, and National
Chairman Thompson says the party ex
pects to effect an organization in a num
ber ot other states in the near future.

American Committee Formed for Pur
pose ot Aflordlnc Relief to
Boer Wounded.
NEW YORK, Dec. 9. An American com
mittee to aid Red Cross work In the South
African war, with special references to
the wounded of both belligerents within the
Boer lines, has been formed for the pur
pose of affording a way by which the gifts
of the American people for such work may
be sent to the right place.
The committee has made arrangements,
for the present at least, to make use of
The Netherlands Red Cross, a responsible
organization in the field, insuring the
prompt and effective use of every dollar
contributed and will also avail Itself of
such other means of accomplishing its ob
ject, as may be devised by the central Red
Cross committee at Geneva.
The American committee has received
numerous offers from doctors and nurses
who have volunteered for services in South
Africa, but these it has been" compelled to
decline, as the committee does not under
take to send either doctors or nurses to
South Africa, but merely to aid the Red
Cross work In that respect.

Superstitions Dewey Diners.
From the New York World.
Superstition seriously disturbed a din
ner at which many prominent New York
ers were present recently. The dinner was
given at Delmonico's by members of the
plan and scope committee of the Dewey
celebration. .Covers had been laid for fif
teen guests. The committee was about to
sit down when some one noticed that the
absence ot Mayor Van Wyck and Comp
troller Coler reduced the number of diners
to tnirieen.
There was an immediate nrntoor Ao n-
expedlent it was suggested that one of the
gue3t bo served at a table apart from
the others. Even this did not satisfy the
superstitious ones. Finally two guests
wero recruited from members or the or
chestra present, and the committee gather
ed around the board.

The man who knows everybody, and ths

lives. Is quite common. But there is a man
in Washington who was born and railed

it, who knows everybody's dog, and the
dog's name. lie will stand on a corner and
point them out as they travel hither nnd

his nose around the corner.
"That's Beriah Wllkins" dog." he said to'
his acquaintance, who also prides himself
upon knowing a good deal about every
thing in Washington."
"It looks more like Jim Riley's dog," said
the acquaintance.
"Jim ttiiey s uog uon i wear any collar,"
replied the authority.
" 'Cause that dog wears a collar It's no
sign he's Beriah Wllklns' dog."
"No, that's so. But Beriah's dog has got
a goitre In his neck, and is a little oft In
cne eye."
The authority whistled to the cur, and
when he came up familiarly the authority
showed his friend the marks of Mr. Wll
klns' dog. This led to a bet that the au
thority could name the owner of every doff
that passed the corner, and in thirty min
utes lie called the ownership of fourteen,
and offered as testimony of his claim to
follow the dogs home. It may have been a
bluff, but people who know say It wasn't.
