S. Sutcllffe will take steps to bury the tiatchet with the Allen County Medical Society. Since a republican governor was elected In Ken tucliy people are prepared to e.xpect anything, honce the report that Dr Sutcliffe and his brother luactiJlonerj in the Medical society will "make up' may not be regarded by many as an impossibility. Dr. SutcliCe was out ot town toda and cojuld nut be seen, but Dr. Dresbach who i^ his iiersonal friend and associates | with hini in practice, ^uld that Dr. Sutcliffu had said that he was • willing to resume friendly relations with the society if the mtanbers of that organlzuiIon were willing. WTieth ev or not he will put In an appllratlon f«)r memberbhip in the society is not known but It is reported that he expressed such an intenitnn to at least one other ph.vsiclan in the cit.v. The differences between Dr. Sut­ cllffe and the Medical soriety have been bitter and are of long .standing. The (rouble soenis to have arisen during ihe period the hospital was under construction. Some of the physicians were gf the opinion that Dr. Sutcliftt was assuming a position of authorit.> in the hospital which did not belong to him. The physicians held that ali members of the profession had equal -Ttehts at the hospital. The trouble later resulted in Dr. Sutcliffe pot being a member of the society. Recently the h()S|)ital was drawn into the trouble. Charges ot unprofessional conduct were preferred by physician.s against Dr. Sutcliffe to be heard by the advisory l>oard of the hospital which was appointed by the Medical society at the suggestion of Mother Bernard Dr. Sutcliffe then causel a temporary restraining order to be issued preventing the board from hearing the charges . He was later denied admittance to the hospital. A patient. P. C, Gilkeson, on an alter- naie writ of mandamus caused the sisters (o admit him to the hospital. Gilkeson was Dr. Sutcliffe'si patient. Thi bearing on the pe.-manent injunction and the peremptory writ of mandamus occurred recently before Judge Koust. Before final decision was handed dowr by Judge Koust an agreement wa^ reached among the attorneys for botl sides that the cases were to be dis missed at I>r.

Walker in speaking of the adoption of the commission form or city government la this city today said that he had what he believed to ba a much better plan. Mr. Walker suggests that the heads of the various departments in this city act as the lower house and the city council and mayor as the upper house or the senate. The business can, according to Mr. Walker, be transacted on the same principle as the state legislature. Mr. Walker has made inve.stigation and says that the plan he suggests Is entirely according to law, Mr. Walker says that his plan would bi^ the moans of sav- li:g the city from any financial em- bf<rrassment which he says Is bound to follow If some action is not taken, lie say .K that his plan could bo adopt d without any great cxponsc.

"The result is what Is more Iniport- •int, not only to the people of the northwest, but to the east as well," he said. "The jieople of the northwest can rest assured that the combined efforts of the financial men here will set the liall In motion that will provide genuine relief that no other measure would. It is not necessary to get into details.

Topeka. Nov. 7.—A rumor whisper ed around in state house circles yes- terdav "afternoon that Governor Hoch had informed the State Tax Commiss•on that ho had practically concluded to call an extra session of the legislature caused much excitement among politicians. Governor Hoch was out of the city and as an expression could not be gained from him the rumor received considerable credence. Members of tha Tax Commission refnsod to dlvicuss the matter, "but S. C. Crummer stated that the confer cnco the Commissioners had with Governor Hoch Monday forenoon was not with roforonca to a special sess 'on. "My guess Is," Mr, Cntmmcr said, "that a special soHsion will not bo called. I do not know, though, what tho (kivernor intends to do." From a number of jx-oplo wlio have talked with Governor Hoch since he returned from Washington It Is learn "c| that while he has considered call Ing an extra session, he has not reach od a definite conclusion. His person a! Inclination saems to be to call the Ifglslature together but he is not convinced that necessity warrantss such action. Tho mombors of the Tax Commission advised him that a special session !s not necessary, so far as the tax law is concerned. The Commisslon- ors are convinced that they can hold down the Mevles without a change in the law. The only troub'e will be in instances:- such an the county high school levies, where both a minimum and a maximum are provided. Feeling in Topeka now is that a special session will not be called nn less there should be a big change In conditions, although Governor Hoch has not made a definite statement of his intentions to anyons. With the Tax Commission and the Railroad Commission both advis'ng against a special session tho primary election controversy is the on'y, thing iremain- ing to be disposed of. If Governor Hoch calls a special •soKBion ho will act solely on tho be- Haf that the enactment of a primary "Icct'on law is necessary. And popular belief here is that a special session will not be called. Working With Missouri. Topeka. Nov. 7.—Kansas will take •jart in the inquiry into the so-calied lumber trust which has been instituted in Missouri by Attorney General H. S. Hadloy. A statement to this effect was made here by Attorney :;enoraI V. S. Jackson yesterday evening. Tho attorneys general of Oklaho iia and Texas will also probably take jomo part in the proceedln.*. "I will send a man to Texas next week, with a rapresentative of General Hadloy," said Mr. Jackson, "for ho |iur;>oso of socuring informailon fogarding Ihi* oporntlons of tho lumber moil..

If we find that we can make a case prosecutions will certainly be startad. I think we are on fhe right track and unless I am great ly mistaken the inquiry will be of Tout besoflt to lumber users In Cansa?." After the Millers. Topeka, Nov. 7.—Attorney General lackson is preparing to hasten the antitrust suit against the Southwestern Kansas Millers' C^ub. instjltuted in rhe district court of Sedgewick coun- 'y almost a year ago, to trial. He stated yesterday afternoon that the -itate ts now practically ready for trial and intimated that he hopes to have the case disposed of before the end of the preseat term of court at Mcblta unless We millers interpose with dilatory motions. "While the millers are confident that they will show that their organ- sation is not In the nature of a trust," said the attorney general. "I am equally confident that the state will be able to show to the contrary. In saying this I do qot desire to be placed in the position of attempting to convict the millers! In public sentiment regardless of the outcome of the suti. Onr evidence v^lll spasfc for itself and I think it wlM be found con- oliMlve." For several months past the attor ney genera] has been busy gathering evidence. Depositions of miliars, mJll- ers' employees an* dealers In mill products.have been taken and Assist- Attomey General John S. DawsoB made a trip to Texas for tha purpose of consulting with the attorney general of Texas regarding the opera-^ lions of the millers' club in that state." Mr. Jackson has not made public the information secured on the Texas trip but it is understood here that it will prove very valuable to him In the prosecution of the Kansas case. The suit against the millers was brought last winter and each member of the Southwestern Kansas Mill ers' organization Is arraigned as s dafeudant. Attorney General Jacicsob alleges that the organization attempted to fix the prices at which mill products should be sold and also regulated the purchase of grain by the mills. Similar organizations of millers in Oklahoma and Texas are believed to have cooperated with the Kansas millers. Attorney General Jackson has been in communication with County .attorney Ayres of Sedgewick county re cently regarding having the case spt for trial, and is hopaful from the tone of Mr. Ayres' letters that Judre Wilson will tic wilting to take up the case as soon as the criminal cases which now have tho right of way on the locket are disposed of.

Bnr ton for mayor was realized today. The mayor Is now in absolute con rol of every branch of the city government. He carries through with him twenty-flva of the thirty-two thirtytwo councilmen, Vhlch makes t unnecessary to dicker with the Re publican mcmbcYs of the city coimcH frtr support. The latest figures give Johnson 48.3D9. Burton 39.026. The peop'e of Cieveland felt today the full effect of Johnson's victory when the Clevalaud electric railway stopped the sale of tickets at* the rate of seven for twenty-five cents, resuming the old rate of eleven fpr fifty cents. A number of franchises of the Cleveland electric expire within the near futtire and as the routes ire given up it will' be the policy of Mayor Jphnson and the city council *n grant franchises to the 3-cent fare lines. Mayor Johnson had little to say laisfi evening. He said that he was still jn tha fight for low rates and that ^e probably would issue a statement tomorrow:.
