Counetl ComniKlee Is Uusy In Private Conferenee This Afternoon.

"THE COUNTY FAIR" Tlie Hock Entert-iluroent Company \\miM Put on Show Here Cnder AimpIfiH of tlie Elks., Jan. 2.—This city is now thoroughly occupied by troops. Every quarter has a body of troops divided so that no point is without protection. Coredon soldiers now surround the entire town which is almost deserted. Only soldiers and sailors are permitted to come here. The suffering of person.s buried in the ruins of the fallen buildings, who are slowly dying of hunger, is horrible. The dead bodies which are being found bear silent tfstimony of the awful torture which was endured before death relieved the suffering. I .jirge numbers of persons thus prisoned have already died from nain and hunger. Other bodies brousbt from the ruins had portions of shawls and parts of clothing In the mouths and one woman was found who had her teeth firmly fixed In the leg of a dead baby. HT majesty.

This morning extra guards temporarily subdued them, but a greater mutiny la feared. Three times the usual number reported sick and some demanded tooth powder and perfume. H'arden Haskell notified the investigating committee who recommended that he use stern but gen- • tie measures. The committee left today for Lan- alng and will return here January 7tb to meet Ihe committee from Okla- boma. Under the direction of J ..M. Rodgers, superintendent of the municipal gas department. Grant Billbe and C. V. Dennis, Inspectors pro tem today completed the first annual gas and water consumers' Inventory. An exhaustive check of consumers was made. At each house an Inspector paid a v^sit and the occupants were subjected to a searching inquiry as to the number of stoves and lights and as to water service. •Where circumstances seemed to require it, the Inspectors made an inspection of premises to ascertain the exact conditions. Some Were Stealing Gas. "We found several places where It was quite evident that more gas than was being paid for was being consumed. For Instance, two stoves were In use where but ont had been reported and paid for. Numerous instances where additional Ights had been turned on without a reiwrt were found. In these cases, we made it a point to arrange with the people for the prompt payment for the gas used and not paid for. his was not difficult. Inasmuch as the party could take his choice—pay the back bill or be prosecuted for connecting pipes without a permit." he Inspectors filed their reports with Charles E. Wendorff, city clerk, this afternoon. Fewer Dellnauenta Now. One crailfying fact revealed by the Inventory In that there are fewer de- llnquei.t oouSnmers now than ever lie- fore. "We found the accounts of the gas and water department In good condition," .Mr. Dennis said. "There are fewer dellnqucntK on the list now than ever before in the history of municipal management." A Wave of Economy. While the effect of the appeal of Superintendent Rodgers foi* economy In consumption of gas has not. a.i yet, been iiartlcularly noted, it IH stntetl that a more careful nse of light and heat i.j perceptible. A few days ago, .Mr. Roilgers figured the gas waste by careless consumers, down to dol'ars and cents. He showed how the people of lola waste annually, more than enough gas to pay the entire gas department twice over or pay the rental on large sections of choice pas leases or drill, tube and case many new gas wells. This statement set the consumer to thinking. He begins to view the gas department in its real light— that of a concern In which he, as a consumer and citizen is a partner. He is beginning to conserve the resources of his firm now Instead of laying waste. Use Wide Topped Globes. Says Gates. The chief objection to turning out gas lights in the day time has been and still-is that the explosion resultant from Ignition nearly alway.q destroys the mantle and cracks the globe. Many citizens have been experiment to find a way whereby they may turn out the light in the day timg and not suffer, daily, the loss of a mantle and globe. William Gates, chief of police, is among the men who have been making exiierlments. He relates his experience this way: "I find that theiise of wide topped globes, when accomiianled by a reasonable degree of caution In lighting mantles will prevent the destruction of both the mantle and the globe. The theory Is, of course, that, when the gad Is Ignited, the force of the concussion Is not confined in a wide to|>- ped globe'as it is In the narrow. The use of wide to^uied globca permit:; the concussion to pass away and thus avert the bursting of the mantle and globe. 1 have tried all. kinds of globes and Ihe wide ones I am now using are the most satisfactory. I had the same trouble as have all gas consuraers, before I adopted the use of the new globes, but now I can burn a mantle several months before It Is destroyed and I geti good light, too," HHd Annaal Mcwtlnff. ' The annual meeting of the Reformed church was held yejsterday at which officers of the different departments of the church were jelectd for the ensuing .vear and a banquet enjoyed. A detailed report of the meeting will ap- liear in Monday's Register, haying been crowded out tjoday for lack, of space. : J. W. Kile is Home. John W.

Mrs. Frank Howard, of Alva, Okla.. is In the city visiting with relatives and friends. Mr. Howard who wa( formerly superintendent of the watet and light plant of this city now has a vlmli ^r poiitlon in Alr». Undoubtedly the usual set of New Year's resolutions, the kind that en- comnasse.-i a man around and about with the coming of a new year, were drawn, considered and approved by many individuals yesterday. The process is not a new one and really these resolutions look like old friends when they Ijob up at the end of each twelve months. As a rule, the same old "resolve" creeps in and makes a fellow feel like saying. "Wliy how do you do, my dear old companion. Let'j see, didn't I set up with you about a year ago? Sure. I did quit oussln." And smokiii' t<;(). 'How stupid of me to forget." And of cour -ije. when the e'astlclty of conscience which makes possible 0 lax observance of the resolutions so earnestly wrought. Is so effectively brought to the mind by the sight of a twelve-month of "busted" good Intentions, one Instlnctly determines to "make good" in the new year. It was ever thus. Iluf anew mode is In vogue. It bids fair to j)ut tlin stereotyped "resolve" out of business. "I'm not going to do any swearing off t;n New Year's," a man said yesterday. "I'm going to work It a little dlffi'rrnf. • K\oiy da) will be New Year's with ine. Today I'm going to live better ilinn I shall today. It's kind rf u ulidlng scale of nuirallly, 1 know, but I've xworn off at New- Year's HO Iriiig thai It's a habit. I've quit swearing (jff —iha( Is the od kind of fwe^irlng off." A good deal of this kind (if seiitliiu'iit might be found in the coiirsH of an inquiry. The advent of the year, I!tn9, was celebrated In the good old way. Stationery engineers did not forget their stunt nt iiigh midnight aild the crisp, keen air resounded with shrill whistles. A few locomotives chanced to be in town and the throttle throwers did their part—loud shrieking blasts from the engine whistles. Then there were numberless parties of young fellows who perform the same old stunt-year after .vear. They iirocured firearms of any .^ort, from Dad's old blunderbuss to i'.n 0!» model of the Iver-Johnson and the midnight air was a riot of niiiske'ry. The din was not so "aw­ ful'y terrible," but there was no need nf an alarm clock to mechanically state the fact that a new year had been officially ushered In. .•\nd of course, tlie social wor:d felt called ui>on to l)eam'wlth benign smile upon young 1909. He's a nice little fellow—just arrived and all that— and it was the part of common courtesy to give the stranger within our gates, a we'come. And so there were watch iiartles galore—and some more. .\ gratifying feature of the end of the festal season may be found in the fact that not a single celebrant fell into the hands of the jiolice. In Kansas f 'lty. the carnage was awful, worse than July 4—in lola It was calm, orderly, sane and safe. Sonichnw. the people must have tumbled to Ihe fact that It's rank, re- dlculous nonsp ti; take the anniversary of the birth of Christ and the birth of the New Year as times lf> be deemed a partL-ularly apjiropriate season to get beastly drunk and—pinched. The festal Feason Is comnianding. more and more, each year, proper observance of Its true spirit and the lime is not far hence when instead of riot and reve'- ry, there will be u unanimity of grateful exnreKslon for the hirlh of a Savior and for the pregervatlon of liody and soul through one year to Ihe beginning of another. SHOWED PARENTS Y. M. C. A, Boya Received Pa and Ma at the Association Building Yesterday. Yesterday afternoon at the local Y. M. C. A. building the parents of the members of the association were entertained at a reception between the hours of 2 and 5 o'clock. The reception was glvn for the purpose of showing the parents just what the association does for the yotuig men of the city In the way of pbysfcal and mental development. In addition to the regular gym work, a basket ball game was played by the junior membern. The Bwimmlm; pool was also a feature of the aftemoon'a entertainment There were more visitors at the building yesterday then any other day dnr- Ing the pa«t year. Leavenworth. Kas., Jan. 2—^Destruction of the two old wooden "cribs," formerly used in administering the "water cure" to convicts, marked the beginning of the new year at the Kan- .sas penitentiary. A resolution presented by Rev Charles Sheldon, and adopted by the investigat^g committee, to the effect that the board be a.sked to take this action, caused the sudden end of the cribs. Two convicts threw the cribs out of the window of the carpenter shop. The coops broke as they hit the pavement. The convicts then .made kindling of them and threw them In a furnace. Dr. S. J. Crum- blne took a snap shot as the cribs fell, while P. D. Cohum applauded with vigorous handclapping. Short'y before noon Attorney Gen eral Fred S. Jackson arrived, and the taklne of testimony began. Pris oners called to testify were sworn by the president of the prison board. John S. Eaton. Warden Haskell was isked to step in each time a prison er witness was sworn and assured him that no matter what hia state- •nents might be. he would be Immune from any punishment for them. Warden Haskell and other prison officials were excluded from the room. Attorney General Jackson first assiir d the commissioners that the testimony of a convict, even uiider oath, was worthless In court, but suggested •hat the commissioners could form their own opinions as to the credihil Ity of witnesses The first witness cal'ed was Archie Pullnm. from Miami county, who Is serving his second term for horse stealing. He also served terms in the Hutchinson, Kas.. nnd Roonville, Mo.. ••eformatorleK. Pullam used excellent language and showed a knowledge of events on the outside. He said that he guessed he was one of the most ncorrlglble nrlsoners In the Instltu- •Ion. and declared that he had received every punishment known, but wou'd not admit that thev were cruel or Iniurloua to his bealth. Pullam admitted that he had engaged In numerous fights with other prls- 'iners, and showed a lon« scar on his ch.-ek. where he was cut by another nrisoner. He described the crib and the wate- cure graphically, but declared that the water cure was not inlur- lous. simply terrifying the first time idministered. He declared that under Warden .Tewett he was once confined in a dark eell on bread and water for 103' davs. He said that the present prison adinln- 'stration was the best ho had known, ^tilium declared in answer to questions, that be had never been badly treated by any of the guards, and that he had no comp'aints to make. Carl Arnold, the next witness, is the author of "The Kansas Inferno." 1 book written while he was chatv laln's clerk, and smuseled out of the nrlaon. He declares that tbe warden 's "sore" at him because of the allegations made in the bonk against 'he prison manaeonient. He says he Relieved his book and his poem had done much to secure a commutation of sentence. Arnold was originally sentenced to hang, hilt his sentence was comihuted to fourteen years' imprl.snnment. Ho Is tall, dark e.ved and Intellectual look ing. He received the commissioners quickly as he entereiUthe room. His hand was firm when he took the oath and he smiled grimly as the nresidont of the nrisnn board assured him of Immun'tv from revenge for anything he might say. "Gentlemen,'' he said to the commissioners, who assured him of Ini- miinltv, I realize the slnceritv of your oromlse. but seriously doubt your Millity, to carry out the guarantee. Howeve-. I am not afraid to tell the troth, no matter what the- conse- nuences." Arnold admitted under close questioning-that he wrote "The Kansas Inferno" from prison hearsay. He was unable to name any apeclflc In- «tance where cniel treatment had been administered. "But I wish you genCemen would stay a long time." he said with twinkling eyes. "Since vou came our molasses Is thicker. We now eat nice baked beans, and we have had fresh pork for a rhanee." Arnold said he considered the food wholesome and the general conditions very fair for « orison, but thought he was belna discriminated against. In that he had been taken away from bis job ss chaplain's clerk and put to mend'ng overalls. water cure and deaorlbed It &^ Inhum- jin. He also declared that piifonera chained to a bar In the celt u a punishment.' suffered bodily Injury. Walnscott said that. conditions In the mine were not the best becaiise some of the officers were not prncti- cal miners and because green men were slowed to work without being properly Instructed by seasoned min-l crs. He admitted that he had bail -a falling out with his particular gimrd. The guard was after questioned nnd gave damaging teatlihony against Walnscott. Deputy Warden Dobson described the punishments about as the prison ers described them, but did not think them harmful and said the prison discipline would suffer for some time as a result of tbe destruction of the crib. Considerable testimony was taken showing that the coal mine results in Immortality among the men. Warden W. H. Haskell testified before the commission today. He described the water cure briefly and spoke of the crib, stating plainly that he had authorized the use of these punishments. Warden Haskell declared that he expected the holding of the investigation would result in the necessity of punishment for twice the ordinary number of convicts on account of the demoralizing effect. Testimony obtained by the committee showed that the water cure bad been administered at the prison but twenty times in the past eight years ind that in two vears and a half three meti had been Injured by mine accidents. The ronvicts uniformly ex- nressed a preference for the water cure to so'itary confinement. CONFESSED XR8. WADE XOBMSASl RECALLED TO WITHlftlii ON READING CIRCLE MR8.
