This step Is not one necessity hut is taken only to place tne city in a position of safely during (any extended zero weather that mighQ occur. The city has been drilling wjells right along, some , of whfch hafe been very good. However, whether or not the city's present supply of gas would be ample'in -case at a cold snap 1« a watter of dispute. Some of the city officials are contidetit Ithat the, present supply is abundant JTor the wlnfer while others are in doubt and aavocate making certain ol sufficient gas by connecting up Wl h the pipe line. . J. M. R>dRers, head of the gas de*i partment, has taken the matter up wltl» the 'etrolia branch of the Kansas Naturil and has been referred to the Indepi ndence officials. He has as • yet recei ed no reply from them.

Another step can he taken which, i» is believed will increase the pres sure. It has been found that many of the pipes have been eaten through, leaving large holes for the gas to escape. To what extent the pipes over town are affected Is not deflnltely known. Mr. Rodgers has, howevar, fUulul JVV^rilT DlIieST ISld, ten or twelve years ago, which were'Vaten throui^h with holes, lending credence tO'the belief that many other pipes are so affected. Mr. Rod?ers is now taking steps to investigate other pipes where shortage is reported, with a vfcw of ascertaining whether ovnot the same conditio5)3 exist. If it is found that \ wh?n the defective pipes are replaced with good pipe, the pressure Is greac ly Increased, connecting up with the • Kansas Natural Gas company's line wilt-not ibc considered further.

The Cbrtotmas gift" in tha way o!f a raise in salary which' the police have been expecting from the city council will not materialize. At Its last meeting, the council passed a motion raising the salaries of the po Ilea officers. It was later found to be Illegal as the salaries can be changed by ordinance on'y. Ijj the meantime the finance committe*;, to which the matter of a raise for the police was referred some time ago, got together and reported to the cpuncll that they believed it inadvisable at this time to grant the increase. Tie report of the committee was adopted. In considering the matter of a raise the- committee deliberated at length on the matter of raising the salaries of certain officers rafher than all of them. It was thought by some that Creerf. who Is assistant cbl?f of police and is regarded as An exceptionally fine officer by the committee, should have an advance over that drawn by the regular patrolmen, but It was decided that at this lime the matter should be deferretl.

When Rojestvensky's Renarks Were Printed the Naval Anthorities Wunld Not Discnss It Taft Fortes Are Gcttlai; Anxlons— Want a Convention Called at Early Date. Slate Superintendent Falrchiid will speak In lola on Saturday. January nth, on the gchoo! merger plan. Mr. Falrchlld has been touring the state for some time, making addresses to those interested in education on the new scheme, and County Superintendent Maude Funston has arralgnod for his visit here on the a'oove uampd' date. The address will occur in the hiyh school building. Mrs. Funston stated this morning that she expected to Invite the schoni t;oards of all districts In the connty to meet here that day and listen to the address. A meeting of the count> school teachers association is a 'so tiled for that date so that all those 'rectly Interested in the school mer- j:?r plan will be on hand to hear the fita'e superintendent. The meeting will therefore be something of an d'lcatlonal day. The school merger plan Is becora- ine a tnuch agitated id2a over the state aijd is receiving the cordial support of 'some of the best posted men on sohoo' affairs. It Is a plan which .as for its jilni. by imltlnp several of the rusnl school districts, to plve tho .voung pconle of the country the ad- antags of graded sehoo's. The expenses incurred by maintaining a graded school In the poimtr>-. It Is said, are easily offset by what Is saved in cuttltiK down the number of Fchoo 's now supported. Mrs. Funston looks upon the plan with favrr. She has *lven the sj-^ tern no little consideration and it Is .»r belief that It can be worked out satisfactorll.v. She has In mind two loca'ities which she regards as ideal for the merged schools. A feature of the new plan is that vehicles have to be providied for the conveyanca of the pupl's to and from the merged schools as the distance would be too for for them to walk. The expenses wbuld be borne by districts. Tn localities where the new- plan is in vogue, special carriages are used for this nurrKJse. The.v are covered have padded seats and are fitted ..p with stoves during' cold weather. In the office of tha county superln- tend.^nt are pictures of wagons which are made for this particular purpose. The new school merger plan has been tried in three counties In the state and reports from there ars that it works out for the good of all concerned. The plan won'd be particularly beneficial to those pupils who have finished the common school work and are not al)le to go to town to the gVaded schools. The benefits and objections to the system will be presented by Mr. Falrchild in detail -n January llth. A POBGKR FREED .. Koch rommntes the .Sentense of Marcell, the Highland Banker. Topeka.

Toklo, Dec. 20.—The following Interviews have been granted exclusively to the As.iioclated Press: Toklo, Dec. 20.—(6 p. m.)—"Japan will heartily welcome the American fleet of battleships to the Pacific and to the ports of this country If it Is decided to extend the trip in this ilircptirn." said Viscount HayashI, fo'- cign minister today. "The fact that the fleet Is sailing towards the Pacific creates no exclt?mcnt here, and, as 1 have said before to the Associated Press, J.ipan views in the friendliest manner any action America may, with In the scope of wisdom, see fit to tnk<^ in the disiiosition of its naval force, because the Japanese people h.ivo abyo 'ute confidenco In the friend ly attitude of the statesmen and great mass of th.'' people. "We hope that the fleet may have a successful and safe voyage and America may rest assured that should the flee; decide to visit the Far East at no [ilaco wil' It r?cpive a heartier welcome than in Japan." Foreign .Minister Viscount Ha.vashi in Riving the above statement to the As.»oclHtfd Press, voiced the sentiment of I ho whole Japanese iieople. The News There Yesterday, The news of the actual Milling of the fleet reached .Tapan only yesterday and this morning It filtered out through the vernacular and foreign press, accompanied by a description of the scenes of the departure. A special dispatch carried an interview with the Russian Admiral Rojestvensky under a New York date, comi)arIng the chances of « Japanese fl.^et against the American. This in tervicw caused some amusement In .naval and diplomatic circles. In view I of Rojestvensky's fate when be reached Japan, but It was noticeable that none of the naval officers wonid be led Into a discussion of the admiral's view for publication. To Greet as Friends.—^Togo. Admiral Count Togo said: "1 am very glad that the fleet has -larted for the Pacific. If I am correctly informed. It Is expected on this Sid? in April or May. If it should nl- imately couch on our shores we will greet them as friends and give them the warmest reception. Wte entertain nothing but the kindliest f eelings .to- v,-ards American Kailors." The minister of the navy. Admiral Sal to, said: "The American fleet will be heart lly welcomed should It visit Japan. I know Admiral Evans well. He is a delightful gentleman and a splendid sailor and I certainly hope that he will bring bis ships on this side and give us a chance to show our apprecl stion of his good qcalltlcs." A man could get through the glad some holiday season as cheaply as a woman if his friends would take handkerchiefs. of NO DRINKERS IN HIS CHURCH.

GIVE|DOOSEVELT A CHANCE Topeka, Decenilier 20.— iSpecIal.)—I. I^ Lenroot, of Super ior, Wl.-wnsin. former speaker of the Wisconsin House of Represen- tatfves. Is In Kansas conferring with "Square Deal" Republican leaders regarding starting a campaign to elect a Kansas delegation to the RepubM. cnn national convention pledged to supiiort Senator Robert M. LaFollette for tfce nomination for President. Mr. Lenroot slipp.'^d into Topeka Wednesday night and It is understood here that he canle from Lawrence where he had been In conference with W. R. Stubbs. The movements of tha Wisconsin man In Topeka have been very quiet and he has made no effort to attract attention to himself. He has managed to dodge being intervlawed by newspaper representatives regarding the purposes of his trip but has not denied that he is here In the Interest of Senator L&FoIIette's presidential candidacy. It is presumed that the movement In Kansas Is in line with the campaign started a week ago to take Nebraska away from Taft. AVliat encouragement Mr. Lenroot met with here can not be learned. Ho talked to Arthur Capper. ^Jas. A. Troutman and H. C. Larimer during the day yeslenlay. Up to this time the "Square Deal" Repub'Icans have not declared openly for IjiPollette although they have iotimated that they would like to support bira. The fear that Roosevelt might reconsider his determination not to run again has restrained them, however. It Is expected that Lenroot asks that an effort be made to elect LaFollette dele" gates from some of the congressional districts even if-it be found that a ap'id I^Pollette delegation can not be chosen. " ~ . Lenroot Is not unknown In Kansas Almost two years ago he was one of the principal speakers at the Wichita meeting held for the purpose of organizing the now extinct Civic League. He come then as a substitute for I.aFollette. who was unable to fill the engagement he had made. Since that time Lenroot was the LaFollette candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor, but was "•efeated at the primaries by (3ovem- or Davidson. The Taft forces in Kansas are con- IderaWy stirred up at the evidence that I^Follette hopes to carry Kansas. They are now preparing to have the Republican state committee, which will meet here December 28 call an early convention and there is some talk that the state convention may be called to meet as early as February 19. D. W. Mulvane. Republican, national committeeman, who has just returned: from Washington, says that there is a mistaken opinion •regarding the .right of congresstonal districts in Kansas to elect de'egatea to the national convention by district primaries. He says the delegates may be elected by primary only In states where thare Is a primary law covering the elections of delegates. In Kansas there is no such law and the probabilities now are that all delegates to the national convention wl'l be chosen at conventions. MITCHELL IS ILL. Kansas City, Dec. 20.—William J. Bryan in this city today when questioned as to the democratic presidential possibilities and particularly aa to the prolwble candidacy of Governor John A.

He gave the millers time to agree among thamselves as to what course they wish to pursue. The tomey general Is in possession much evidence against some of the millers.
