Robinson Will Not Have to Set Up Nature of Gothorn Investigation, .ludge Foust this morninsr over ruled the motion of the plaintiff in the inaiulanius action of J. B. Goshorn vs. .M. G. Robin.son et al, in which he a.sked that the mayor and counc 1 be compelled to appoint him city attorney under the old soldietL preference law, to make the defenseTfeet up the time, place and manner of the investigation which' the mayor says he made into the application of Mr. Cos horn. The ma>'or in refusing to an- point Mr. Goshorn had filed a state ment with the city clerk setting out that u |K )n investigation he found Mr, Goshorn an tmflt person to fill the office. Mr. Ooshorn's attorneys have held that the investigation was not bonafide and asked that the mayor set cut the time, place, manner and nat ure of th? alleged investigation. The court's decision saves the mayoi' from having to tell from whom he secured Information that Mr. Goshorn was un lit to fill the position. The case will ho heard on Its merits on the 29th of this month. BASKET BALL GAME LAST NIGHT. Third Team Won From Fifth Team.— Score 21 to 26.

FIGHT FOR THE DELE6ATI0N NO SQUARE DEAL CANDIDATE FOB OOVEBNOR YET. 8. -M. Porter May Come Ont Againnt Campbell In the Third • District Topeka, Kas., Nov. S.—(Speclall Al though Kansas republicans seem to be pretty well united iu 8up|>ort of W. H Taft as a candidate for president present Indications are that there will be a rather lively light over the se lection of the Kansas delegation to the republican national convention The fight will probably warm up immediately after the national committee meets in Washington next month and issue.'! the call for the national con vent ion. The real question at Issue in Kansas will not be the presidency but party control. If either the "machine" or he "Stjuare Deal" faction controls the delegation or if the delegates are di vided between the two factions Taft will in all probability get the solid vote of Kansas. But the delegation will select Kansas' member of the national committee. National committeemen is therefore what the factions will really "fight over. At this time D. W. Mulvane Is the only announced and open candidate for commlteeman. Mulvatie has held the place since 1900 when he succeeded In unhorsing Cyrns Leiand. Mulvane seems to enjoy the friendship of both United States senators, most of the members of the lower house of congress and the state officers. StubbB and all avowed "Square Deal era" are opposed to Mulvane but they have not yet nuceeded In bringing out candidate, .f. N. Dolley, .lames A. Troutman, William Allen White and Stubbs himself have all been talked of but neither has been agreed upon by the leaders as a candidate. Without a candidate the "Square Deal-ers are of course a little handicapped In heir fight on Mulvane but they will proliably have a candidate before the fight gets much older. In at least two Kansas districts delegates to the national convention will probably be elected by direct primary—the First and Second districts where primaries will be held for the nomination of congressional candidates. Primaries may also be held In the Sixth,. Seventh and Eighth dis- ricts. In that event these districts will elect two delegates each by direct jilmary. The other districts will follow the custom which has prevailed for many years and elect their delegates at the congressional conventions Heretofore Kansas has elected six delegates at large but the creation of the Eighth district and the loss of the Congressman at large decreases the lumber of delegates at large to four iid lncrea.»ies the number of dl.strlct relegates by two. The national committee has always heretofore provided for the selection of delegates at large a state convention and probably will do so again. At Ibis time there are no announced candidates for delegate but a large crop will spring up shortly after the December meeting of the natloual committee. Several ambitious repub- icans are already feeling their way but have not reached the announcement stage. So far, there Is but one hing sure regarding the delegation— probably will not Include Iu Its niem bershliis any general attorneys for railroads. .M. A. Lowe of the Rock Island, .V. H. IxMmIs of the Union Pacific and J. H. Richards of the .Missouri Pacific have all In times past been elected delegates to national conventions. But with i>opular feeling as It is now, there is little probability that the general attorney for a railroad could get very far with his can- didac.v, no matter how good a man he might be. In political circles the impression Is growing that the republican nomination for governor next year will settle down to a three man contest between C. L. Davidson of Wichita, Grant Hornaday of Ft. Scott and Jas A. Bradley of Sedan. While most of the early talk was as to who was the candidate of which faction the fact remains that neither Davidson, Homaday nor Brad ley can at this time be regarded as a factional candidate. Each of the thre* candidatea ia now THE WEATHER. Forecast for Kansas: Generally fair tonight and Sunday; cooler to- nlghL assured of a big/followlng. Hornaday will certainly have the solid support of the Second district, with the possible exception of Douglas county and many scattering votes. Davidson will undoubtedly have the Eighth dis trict solid, with help from the Sev eut|i and perhaps much scattered "Square Deal" backing. While not ex actly affiliated with the "Square Deal organization Davidson has as a member of the legislature stood with Stiibb 00 most legislative matters. Bradley Is a Third district man and the Third district seldom falls to back Usi hriuie candidates solidly. As the Third Is the largest district lu tne state, republican population going to make size. Its solid support is no mean Item and gives Bradley, thougl perhaps the known of the three candidates, much supliort with which to bring his fight. Talk of Stubbs fur Governor seems to be steadily decreasing In volume as the Lawrence man devotes himself tuore assiduously to his race for United States senator and there are now many indications that both "machine" and "Square Deal" support will be divided between Davidson. Bradley and Hornaday unless some new and unexpected candidate gels Into the fight. TO OUST TWO MAYORS PROCEEDINGS AOAINST WEST MIN ERAL AND SCAXMON. The announcement that .lohn Overfield of Independence Is a candidate for the republican nomination for state senator from Montomery county has stimulated talk that Senator S. -M. Porter will announce his candidacy for congress In the Third district. Porter, it has been understood here would either be a candidate for congress or run for his old place In the senate. Support going to Overfield Indicates that many of Porter's old friends do not expect him to again run for Senator. If Porter announces as a candidate for congress when he returns from Euroi)e, five counties In the Third will have candidates, counting Cowley. The list of five would be made up of P. P. Campbell of Pittsburg. C. A. McNeil of Columbus, E. L. Burton of Parsons. S. M. Portfr (it Caney and W. L. Cunningham of Cowley. GOLD FOR INTERIOR NeiT York Banks Shipplnir the Yellow .Metal to South and West. New York, Nov. 9.—The stream of Europe's gold pouring Into New York has not been halted here to meet local demands, but is being allowed to How through the financial arteries of the United States and relieve the needs of agricultural and other indus- ries generally. Gold Importers state that nearly all of the $21,600,000 which has already reached here will sdbn find Its way to every quarter of the country. Nearly $12,000,000 has been shipped to the interior this week. r;old had been shipped from here to Chicago In such large amounts, it Is understood in local banking circles, that the Issuance of circulating bank scrip in Chicago possibly may not be necessary. The greater part of the $12,000,00 arriving on the steamer vusitania and of the $2«,000,0U0 still o come will be immediately expressed to out-of-town banks. Never in the history of New York finances, according to gold imiwrters, has there been so much money engaged broad by out-of-town banks as at present. "Tliere need be no fears," said a uiember of one of (he largest gold Importing firms last night, "that there ill be cessation of gold ItufMrts because of the Increase in the discount les of the banks of England and eruiauy. These Increases in the dl.s- count rate were not made for the purpose of stop|)lnK gold from coming to this country, as Is popularly suji- Ked, but to strengthen their own position by drawing gold from other centers In the world. There Is u heavy outward movement of .American commodities and until they are paid for we can demand our payments In gold and It can not be denied us. The gold that we are Importing Is coming In every form, though principally In American double eagle-s. I know that within a year the Russian imperial reaaury had $l.'>0.nOO,000 In American double eagles hoarded In Its vaults, while the |}ank of England has many ilUou of dollars of American gold coin. We sold a bank yesterday $1,250,000 iu gold which was dispatched to the bank's out-of-town correspondents. Without doubt the greater part of the gold imports are being sent to the country banks which are making their demands on the local inatitu- lons for their balances." Figures compiled today by New York banks show that banking centers hroughout the United States have rawn nearly $12 000,000 from this city within the week. Of this 'sum. over $5,000,000 was sent through the subtreasury. THEY VIOLATED PROHIBITORY LAW LEAVENWORTH MAYOR TO WORK AtaiNST COVXISSION tJOV'T. Dalton'H Pardon Ua.<i Enroiuraged Friends of John Colliu<t to >Vork fur HIN Release. R. B. CULLI80N is moving today from the Fuller building on tha east side of the square to the office of R. H. Bennett, with whom he has formed a partnership. Topeka, ICansas, November 9.— (Special)—(Attorney General F. S Jackson this ; afternoon filed In the Supreme court ouster proceed li.g against the mayors of West MIn oral and Scammon, two small towns III Crawford county, lor failure to dis charge their duties with reference to the enforcement of the prohibitory law. and for the licensing of joints through a system of regular monthly fines imposed in police court Suits were also filed against the cities and their"officials to restrain them in fu ture from continuing this license system. The suits are practically the sante as those prosecuted against the mayors, and cities of Kansas City, Lea venworth. Junction City, ^^chlfa and Pittsburg. The attorney general a!so asked that the Supreme court cite for con tempt several Pittsburg Jolntlsfs and perhaps city officials who are alleged to have been taking part in the col lection and payment of monthly con trlbutlons to the city government of Pittsburg In return for the prlvllegc- of running joints without molestation by the city authorities. It l9 the contention of Attorney General ackson that this practice is in violation 'tof the order of the Su preme court in the ouster case against the city of Flttsburg, which was calculated to prevent either a direct or Indirect license system. The names of the persons whom the Attorney general wished' cited for contempt have not been announced and will not be until the court has issued an OD der for their arrest and service has been obtained. This latter proceeding by the at tcrney general Is a new one In Kan sas and l» Intended to reach persons not In official positions. It is alleged that persons representing the city au thorltles at PIttsbtirg have collected money from Jointlsts for protection In much' the same way that money was collected from Wyandotte county joint lats after W. W. Rose had once been ousted as mayor of City, Kan sas. and reelected. The attorney general Is devoting much of his energy at present to the enforcement of the prohibitory law In Crawford county. He considers that county to be the "wettest" In the slate. The crusade wl'l be continued until decisive re!?ults are secured, according to statements made by .\t torney General .Tackson today. Schlitz to Leave Kansas. Topeka, Nov, 9.—The .Tos. Schlltz Brewing company yesterday paid $o. 900 to D. A. Valentine, clerk of the Su preme court, and Is now free to take its property, which since the filing of ouster and receivership proceedings against It last spring by Attorn^' Gen.'>ral Jackson has been in charge of S. H. Allen, G. H. Wfcitcomb and T. F. tJarver as receivers, out of the slate. Judgment In ouster has been entered against the Schlitz company and It probably will not again attempt to hold property In Kansas or transact business in Kansas. The settlement maile yesterday Is he net result of a compromise be- tveen the three rec?lvers and the at- tome.vs for the Schlitz company under the terms of which the receivers scaled their fees down from $2,000 to $1,250 each. The Supreme court made a fee allowance of $2,000 to each receiver.' The Schlitz company considered the allowance exhorbltant and (he receivers flnall.v consented to a reduction In order to secure a sett'e ment. In all the other whi>re sfttlement has been made the receivers have been jfald thp full amount iil'owpd by the court. There are now but three of the brewing cases which have not settled their cases, paid thel> fees and taken their property back and out of the .^tate. Otters of rompromlsn have bien made by the Wm. J. I.,emp company and the Goetz .Brewing com- nony. according to statements made here by Attorney General Jackson vesterdav. He looks for compromises to be made In these two cases and the case aga'nst the Miller Brewing company within a short time. Renew Work on Collins Pardon. Topeka, Nov. 9.—The pardon of Emmett Da'ton has greatly encouraged the friends of John Collins In Topeka and they will make a desperate effort dui-ing the next twelve months to Influence Governor Hoch to extend clemency to Collins. Governor Hoch has shown much Interest In John Collins and In one or two Instances has Indicated that he Is inclined to do somethinK for him. Collins has noa| t>een in the peni- was a prominent business man and well known in secret society connections over the state. The evidence against jtjung Collins was wholly circumstantial and many people doubt his guilt. Collins' sister and step mother, both >r whom reside In Topeka, are his .Irm friends and .sincere believers In his Innocence. The sister, a very at tractive young woman. Is a frequent caller at the executive offices In her brother's Interest. She has procured letters from every possible source be- .selglng Governor Hoch to open the prison doors fur her brother. The •Jtep mother Is no less devoted If perhaps not so op?nly active.' Wiiat Governor Hoch will finally do 'n the Collins mutter can of course be but conjectured now but the impresw ion Is growing that he will pardon Collins. If Governor Hoch makes mis lakes in his dea'lnps with convicts it will be on the side of mercy. In fact. •IS has already been called a "pardon governor," and a ".sentimentalist by many who f)bji-ct to the pardons he has granted. But this fact will hardly deter him from further exer cf.';e of the pardoning power a.<? he Is not overly sensitive' to public opinion when he disagrees with popular sentiment. Governor Hoch has already pardoned two notorious convicts, WPIlie Sell and Emmett Dalton. He has granted many pardons to prisoners not so promln?nt. To Defeat Commission Government. T.,eavenworth. Kas.. Nov. !>.—Ma.\-or Everhardy and the city council have taken their firet step in a second effort to defeat the petition for the commission form of government. They have ruled that signatures attached to petitions clipped from newspapers will not be accepteiT. Uy this ruling 240 names have been stricken from the petition as presented to the coun- f^il. The action of the council was aken on the theory that there wa."? no evidence that the petitions had not been attached to the signatures rath^ ei* than the sisnatures to tha petl tiosn. ^Vlille tlie petitions still bear sufficient number of signatures to compel the council to carll a special election to pass on the commission form of government It is expected that enough names will yet be stricken off to let the council reject It. If the council takes the action expected the friends of the commission plan wKI get up another petition. Oever Starts Mandamus Suit. Junction City, Nov. 9.-^|ty Attorney Thos; Dover hai started mafldam- us proceedings In the district court to comi)eI Mayor .Muenzenmayer. Police ii'.tlge Stakebake and City .Marshal Pritchett to recognize him lu his official capacity as city attorney In the prosecution.'* of "two i)er cent" joints recently started here. He (Hjiiyjlalns that he was not notified that' the cases were to be started and that when he appeared In iMjIlce court to take charge of the cases he was Informed that he had nothing to do with them. The crusade against "two lier cent" joints here has been principally conducted by the representatives of the State Temperance Union. K. Codding and John Marshall. The proceedings started by Mr. Devar are based on a city ordinance declaring that attorney shall represent the city in all litigation in which Is interested.

Ky., Nov. 9.—^The republican victory in Kentucky will have a decided bearing on the case of Caleb Powers, four times convicted of complicity in the assassination of Go\-- ernor Goebel. Governor-elect Wilson the new chief executive of the state, has the |K )«ver of appointing the trial dge and will evidently appoint a republican. Friends of Powers sa.v now the alleged assassin will get a fair rial for the first time In the history the famous case. Their claim is that at all previous rial.s the jury has been packed with oebel democrats and that it was impossible fbr the prisoner to get a fair trial. The court of appeals has ordered a new^ trial of Powers becatise Irregularities and failures to com- ly with the law. During the cumiiaign Wilson announced that he would not pardon Caleb Powers, hut declared he would make him stand trial. Indianapolis, Nov. 9.—Friends of W. S. Taylor and Charles FInley, who are In a imition to know, asserted today that Taylor and FInley will return to Kentucky. .Mr. Taylor said he was vitally Interested In the result In Ken tucky—as much so, perhaps, as Caleb Powers, who Is directly charged with complicity In the Goebel killing. Charles FInley. ex-secretary of state of Kentucky, who with Taylor, bas been an exile from that state for nearly seevn years, was with the former governor part of today. Powers' fifth trial Is to be called Monday. An effort will be made to have it postopned until the new executive takes his seat TO ROOT FOR CRIMSON. . .it Delegation of Foot ball Enthusiasts to Lawrence Today.

Berlin, Nov. 9.—Emperor William will see Secretary Taft on the Isle of Wight," during the former 's visit to England. A message conveying this wish was sent through the German. embassy at Washington, it being understood that Mr. Taft has finally decided to return to the United States by way of Europe. It Is. regarded as likely that Mr. Taft will a!so seek an audience of King Edward, as for the American to visit the German emperor on British soil. without paying equivalent respect tn the king might be r^rded as discourteous. No official arrangements hlave been, made for the entertainment of MrJ Taft on the Isle of Wight. The emperor merely expressed ,the pleasure It would give him to receive Mr. Taft, and. fbllowlng his habit, probably ask him: to lunch or dinner. Diplomats Want to Know. The Americans In Berlin hope Mr. Taft will stop here long enough to accept various courtesies. Amhassa-; dor. Tower is arranging a dinner at which Chancellor Von Buelow. the chief of the general staff General Von Moltke and Foreign Secretory Vo^ • Shuen w-ill be present. Mr. Tower ; also will offer Mr. Taft an afternoon ' reception. The American Association, oi Commerce daslres to give him a public dinner, and Isidore Loewe. head of the Mouser rifle works and several other great industries, has, planned a luncheon at which Mr. Taft wl'l meat a score of the great boal- ness men of Germany. ^, So much has been said about Mr. Taft planning to nee the emperor that some; of the Other governments have seemingly become curious In regard to whether anything Is Intended by the step taketj by the American gOT- erntnent. -Amljossadors Brice and Jusserand, It, Is asserted here, already have made Inquiries on the subject at the state depairtment at Washington. Two Formal Invitations. Washington, Nov. 9. —So much has come from foreign capitals concerning Secretary Taft's tour that officials of the war and state departments are bficoniing confused concerning the schedule. It Is not believed, however, that the secretary has sought an Interview with any European ruler. It has been stated officially, and reiterated, that Mr. Taft is not In a dlpk)- matio laission to Europe, and has no offlclsil - business to transact at any European capital. -Befor.e he left Washington, the secreta^ had been invited to stop at St. Pefarsburg and meet the Czar of Russia, and the Emperor of Germany. There is danger of European sovereigns feeling s'lghtad If Mr. Taft sKoiild; discriminate In favor of any of. the'capitals. There Is no disguising the fact that cfflcial.s of the state department would prefer that Secretary Taft's trip througJ* Europe should be made without h'.ji engaging In any .court functions; ""Khere is no disposition on ttie part o}".
