Joe Lane has resigned his position at Dclan's.

Judge Bland yesterday morning decided tho Alex. Atcheson mandamus case in favor ot the city of Atchison. The important question decided, and a new question in the courts, is that when the city of Atchison refunded $030,000 in bonds, during the period from lh'S3 to 1S97. the indebtedness of the city, 'as a city of the second class, in which it was when the indebtedness was created, was wiped out, and the new bonds being accepted by the bondholders, became an indebtedness of Atchison as a city of the first clasp. Cities of the second class are authorized by the legislature to levy 4 cents on the dollar for all purposefe, while cits of the first class can levy only 2 cents.

The effect of this decision is that the city council of Atchison cannot be forced to levy 4 cents on the dollar, or double the amount it is now levying, to pay Mr. Ateheson's claim. Of the 2 celts on the dollar, the council is now levying 17 mills is for interest on the refunding bonds and 3 mills for general revenue. The general revenue fund is always overdrawn so much that, even after taxes are received, there is no money with which to pay Atcheson's judgment of $2,000, received for injuries received by falling into an open coal hole of the Troy laundry bulld'ng. H.

M. Jackson, attorney for Atcheson, asked that formal rendition of the judgment in favor of the city be reserved until be has time to bring up some new questions. Reasonable timo will be given him. The Atcheson judgment was secured during H. C.

J. Deane Evens-Deane Company, in the City. F. A. Hammond of New.

York, proprietor of the Pacific house arrived in the city Friday morning, 'accompanied by G. Zenecke, a New York millionaire, who is largely interested in the Murray Hill hotel in New York and the new Hotel Eseex in Boston. Yesterday noon D. J. Deane, president of the Evvihs-Deane Hotel company, which owns the Metiopole, arrived in St.

Joseph from Kansas City, and since then rumors have been flying thick of new hotels that are to be built and old hotels that are to be remodeled. Mr. Deane when seen by a reporter for The Gazette last night, said that there was nothing to be given out at present. He did not deny, however, that the presence in the city of himself, Mr. Hammond and Mr.

Zenecke was more than a coincidence. There is no doubt that some scheme for a new hotel in St. Joseph is on foot. Among those known to be interested is John Donovan, Jr. He is reported to have made the statement Friday night that a fine new hotel was to be built here soon and that Mr.

Hammond and Mr. Zenecke were to have a hand in it. From what could be learned yesterday it does not seem probable that the owners of the Pacific and the Metropole will combine. Both parties have been talking new hotel for some time. The owners of the Pacific have talked of remodeling.

The Ewins-Deane Hotel company has talked and made plans for building a fine hotel on the northeast corner of Francis and Fifth streets. The only thing so far that seems to have prevented the latter is the difficulty experienced in purchasing the necessary ground. Although both companies are talking new hotel there is no possibility of both of them carrying out their plans. The reason for the presence here of both Mr. Deane and Mr.

Hammond is said to be a desire to come to an un-understanding as to whether the Pacific shall be remodeled or the new- hotel built at Fifth and Francis. One or the other, it is stated, will without much doubt be done in the near future. Should a decision be made to remodel the Pacific, it is stated that the building after repairs are (finished, will be leased by the Ewins-Deane Hotel company and run in conjunction with the Metropole. The Pacific Hotel company owns the lot upon which the Pacific is built and if Zenecke, the New York capitalist can be convinced of the profitableness of an investment in a remodeled house, it is likely that the improvement will be made.

The motor-man had just enough time to get out of the depot. Once out he noticed that he had failed to put the sign "Baseball today" on the front end of his car. As it was against orders to go out withotit the sign he ran back to th place where the are usualy piled up, grabbed one and put it on his car. All the way his route he noticed that people looked at him in a peculiar and smiled repeatedly. It was one of those morning? when it was very cool, and the- day before had been real hot.

The joke was finally explained when a man yelled to the mo-torman: "Quite a contract," and at the Fame time pointed to a van that had "Swimming at painted on it side, and the non the front of the car. The mo-torman leaned over and found that his "baseball" sign bore the words, "Skating on Centennial Lake." Philadelphia Call. Exports of Gold and Silver. New York. July 21.

Cleveland Plain Dealer. fchisoo OF THE 1 1 The Bailey and Curtis fight was fought all over again by the Republican county central committee at Turner hall yesterday evening. The committee had met to sclct 22 delegates to the senatorial convention at Whiting next Wednesday, and during the discussion previous to the selection of delegates, the question arose as to whether the delegation should support a candidate favorable to the re-election of Lucien Baker fcr Unittd States senator, or should vote for a man of the Burton school. The majority of the Curtis men on the committee were for Burion. but the Curtis mm were outnumbered about 10 to 1, and a solid Baker delegation was named.

Tom Beattie, who thinks to this day that he had something to do with Curtis' victory In Atchison county, led the light for Burton, while Capt. Stabler Huron, a lighter who never lets up, furnished wind for the Baker fellows. Both men resorted to strong personalities and the atmosphere was favorable for a cyclone for a few minutes. Beat-tie referred to Stabler as a "genuine devil." and Stabler got even by calling Beattie a name that no person in the building could translate. This senatorial district is composed of Atchison and Jackson counties and it has been the custom to give the senator to one county one term and to the other county the next.

This happens to be Jaekson'a turn. Juckson county has only 14 delegates against Atchison's 22. but Will Dailey that Atchison vote according to Jackson's wishes. This brought the Baker ujvo to their feet. They feared that Jack-eon's choice might be a Burton man, but Jim Chisham settled the matter by moving that Atchison vote for a Jackson county man who ir.

for Baker. The motion promptly passed. This will give the Atchison delegates an opportunity to select any Jackson man they wish, so the regular candidates from Jackson county may not win. They certainly cannot win unless they pledge themselves to support Senator Baker. The candidates are T.

B. Moore and Cyrus Hurl, both of Holton. Mr. Chis-ham says he thinks both are Baker men. Torn Beattie wanted the committee to recommend that the senatorial committee postpone the date of the convention in order to give Atchison county a chance to hold a regular convention, but he vvas all alone on the propesition.

During the mix up between Beattie and Stabler the latter paid he would vbte for the fusion candidate for senator if the Republicans nominate a Burton man. The delegates are as follows: Thomas Eckles, S. G. Moore, John Blankenship. R.

T. Andrews. A. B. Harvey, A.

Huff, W. M. Walker, C. K. Smith, F.

Gleim, A. A. Raasi C. E. Reynolds, Henry Racks.

Dick Peltz, Mike Cooper, T. B. Cerow, P. R. Booker, W.

II. Hudson, Fred Hartman. S. H. Kelsey, Frank Earhart, R.

M. Clark and H. H. Hack-nc A well known Atchison politician clllms to have positive information to the effect that Judge Albert II. Horton will be a candidate for United States senator to succeed Lucien Baker.

Judge Horton came within a few votes of carrying off the plum at the time Baker was picked up as a compromise, and he evidently believes that with a bitter fight on between Baker and Burton, his chances this time will be far better than they were before. Judge Horton would probably be acceptable to Atchison county Republicans generally, but neither of Atchison's representatives in the legislature would vote for him. John Seaton is for Baker, and M. E. Larkin, who will be the Republican candidate from the country district, also for Baker.

Still with chances very bright for a great fusicn victory in Kansas this fall, Raker nor Burton will stand any show of election. The only Democratic candidate so far Is David Overmyer. Topeka's lawyer-orator. Major C. A.

Woodworth told the writer yesterday that he would not be a candidate for the seat in the legislature made vacant by the death of I. B. Wilcox. There will be a number of candidates for the place. The Republican candidate will be M.

E. Larkin. Managers of picnics shuuld see C. V. Jacobs about ice cream, cakes, couk-ies, pies, bread and other confectioneries.

Walker. In reply to a question from an east-fin paper as to what shall comprise the Democratic watchword in the pending national campaign, John H. Atwood, of Leavenworth, has prepared and given out the following: "The hopes of the Democracy are lithe people. All the bribe money of the nation is-in the of the enemy, 1 mt the heart of the American people beats warm and true, and its conscience Is a living force. We must arouse American intelligence, that it may teach the American hearts and conscience their duty to the coming century.

We must bow to truth, and not to trusts. We must worship God instead of Creed. The course we pursue must be one of truth, honor and Justice. The alternating red and white in our banner must not speak of stripes for our citizens, but only for our foes. And when the debenture decked demagogue talks about the flag, we must say: "The buccaneer who flaunts a priestly stole as his banderole is but a sea robber still; and though the (lag of freedom be hoisted above the harem and slave pens of the Sultan of Sulu, the 71 4 as he he he m.

2 to a a at of A. in of GAZETTE tttt-HiM-T slave pens still echo with the groans of servitude, and the harem is. still an oven of polygamous lust. Let the Hag float only where It can be in absolute verity, a symbol of liberty, where the Declaration of Independence is known a living truth, and where the Constitution is contiolling law." Frank P. MacLennan and wife of The Topeka Journal spent five hours in Atchison last night.

They left at midnight for a trip over the Central Bianch. Dr. Hubbard Linley will go to Excelsior Springs today to visit his father. Prof. P.

E. Almond, formerly with the Western Union here, is now in charge of the telegraph instrument in the residence of W. J. Bryan at Lincoln. He writes to a friend here that is working in the White House, and enjoys it immensely.

W. D. Gilbert was heard to remark last night that The St. Joseph Gazette was trying to bring another Republican into the race for district judge, in order to defeat him, if possible, for the nomination for that office. Mr.

Gilbert is sadly mistaken. The Atchison department of The Gazette is "dead" anxious for the Republicans to nominate him for judge, for it knows that will be by far the easiest man for Judge Bland to "take down the line." Mr. Gilbert will be nominated no mistake about that. And he will be defeated at the election just as easy as received the nomination. The Democratic county central committee met at the office of T.

A. Moxcey yesterday and called the county convention to meet at Turner hall, at 11 a. on Friday, August 10, and set the primaries for Friday, August :5. In the country the primaries will be held at p. m.

and in the city at 8 p. m. The apportionment of delegates will be the same as in IS! ft). The Bryan and Stevenson club was discussed and the members of the committee promised to assist the club in their precincts. The total membership now exceeds 200.

The People's party met at Albert Cure's office and selected the same date for the convention as the Democratic committee had done, but the primaries will be held on August Both meetings ere very largely attended.

Goddard married Miss Eva King, of Nortonville, with whom he is living happily, and who was a witness in the case. Mrs. Conkey charged that he had previously engaged himself to her; that the engagement was generally known, and that she as there "ore entitled to damages. Atchison attorneys represented both sides. Levina, the 7-year-old daughter of W.

Hundley of Noll, died yesterday. Edwin II. Conger, United States minister to China and Judge H. M. Jackson of Atchison were fellow students at Lombard university, Galesburg, 111.

Comes to Prominent Physician in Washington From Secret But Reliable Source Will They Hold OutP Washington, D. July 21. "Minister Conger, his family, and lady guests are safe.

They are confined with other foreigners in a subterranean passage between the imperial palace and the English legation They are suffering somewhat from lack of food, but no bodily harm has come to any of them." This Is the substance of a communication sent to the Wrhite House yesterday by Dr. J. C. Ellis, a practicing physician of this city in good standing, who resides at 1S17 street, N. W.

Dr. Ellis claims to have received his information through secret sources direct from China. He declines to disclose the source of his information at present, but has informed the authorities that he will do so at. the proper time. his communication was first received at the White House little importance was attached to it, but upon the receipt of a cipher message from Minister Conger yesterday, then Colonel Montgomery, who is in charge of the White House in the absence of Secretary Cortelycu, wrote a note to Dr.

Ellis asking if he had any further particulars and for his source of information. Has Had Three Messages. "I have just replied to Colonel Montgomery," said Dr. when a reporter called at his residence this afternoon, "stating that I received another message just before noon today, showing that the minister and his family were still safe up to 0 o'clock this morning. I told Colonel Montgomery that I was not yet prepared to give him my source of information, but that he could depend upon it as being absolutely I expect another message to morrow and will take pains to inform the authorities and the public.

"I have had three messages thus far. Vhe firet, which I transmitted to the White House, came on Wednesday. I communicated its contents to the White House on the following morning, and today, Chief Wilkie of the secret service celled upon me for further particulars and the source of information. I furnished him with a copy of the message, which he has sent to Mrs. Baldwin, a sister of Minister Conger, who resides in this city.

She has obtained much comfort from the information, and I have promised to send her any further jarticulars I may receive." "But doctor," the reporter asked, "how is it that you are able to have direct cemmunieation. with Pekin when tele-graphij communcation is supposed to be cut off and theforeign governments are unable to communicate with any of their representatives?" Come Direct From Pekin. "That will all be explained in he replied. "All I can say now is that my informant is an American lady, residing in Pekin; you may call her Spick if you want." "Are you a spirituaHst?" the reporter esked. "No, sir.

There is too much of the material about me to be a spiritualist. Nor do I take much stock in mental telepathy, and wireless telegraphy seems to have been a failure. At the proper time you will find that my sources of information are genuine and trustworthy. The cipher message received at the state department this morning I regard as a confirmation of what I have received privajtely, and after learning of the receipt of a dispatch from Minister Conger this morning I telephoned the state department calling attention to my previous statements." Dr. Ellis persisted in his refusal to divulge the channels of his information, but declared that he knew positively that Minister Conger and other Americans were absolutely safe up to 0 a.

Friday. He said further that the Americans and other foreigners were confined in the subterranean passage, under the protection of the empress dowager, who desired the American people to know that she was powerless to prevent the revolution in Pekin, but that she would protect the foreigners at all hazards GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago. Chicago, July 23. Big world's shipments, large receipts and unresponsive cables started a decline in wheat todaj and the close was' lc under Saturday for- the September option. September corn closed Mc and September oats down.

At the close provisions were depressed. Wheat Was a very tame market to-dayj Liverpool showed practically no response to the advance here Saturday and world's shipments were large, showing g-ood increases from Russia and the Danuoian country. That was the sort of news which greeted the beginning of trade. September opened i lc under Saturday. There was some covering by shorts for profits, a little buying by traders following this and September rallied to 78.

The rally which traders were playing for failed to materialize, because of outside apathy and a reaction followed. Heavy receipts and a very slack cash business during the rest of the session held the market true to the downward course and the wind-up was lifeless and weak. September dropped to 76c and closed Hie lower at 76c. Clearances at the seaboard in wheat and flour were equal to 180,000 bushels. Primary re-ceoipts aggregated bushels compared with 993,000 bushels last year.

Minneapolis and Duluth reported 269 cars against 287 last week and 565 a year ago. Receipts here were 203 cars, 67 of contract grade. The domestic visible decreased 450,000 bushels and the English 1,22,000 bushels. Reports from the Dakotas were that hot winds had practically completed the destructjve work of the drought. Not much attention was paid to these reports, however.

Corn Was quiet, but steady holding firmly against the weakness in wheat after it had made a small concession to the attitude assumed by the more important cereal. Business in the pit was limied in volume and local in character. The supporting factors Avere light receipts 311 cats here small country offerings, higher cables and a strong cash demand. September sold between 3939c, closing 4c up at ShiDpinKfi bids were reported 3e over September c.i. f.

Buffalo and 4c over September for No. 2 white. Sales for shipment were placed at 250,000 bushels, while New York reported 34 carloads taken for export. Oats The trade in oats was small and largely confined to the operations of local scalpers. The depressing influence was to a degree counteracted by the steadiness of corn.

Receipts were 109 cars. September sold between 23Vc and 23B and closed under Saturday at 23c. Provisions Opened firm on light hog receipts and an advance at the yards. Trade was dull, however, hogs turned easier, there was no export demand and the wheat weakness was depressing, all of which cost the hog product market its early gain and more too. September pork sold between $11.20 and $11.90 and osed down 22VsC under Saturday at $11.9214: September lard between $6.92 and S.82Ms, closing 5c down at $6,8212 and September ribs between and $6.97 with the close 5c depressed at $6.97.

Louis St. Joseph Totals Cattle. Receipts of cattle yesterday were moderate, about half of which were in the quarantine division. Native beeves were weighty as a rule. Quality was generally desirable.

The demand was good and the trade ruled active. Heavy and offish grades of steers were steady, with last Friday, while medium weights which met with most favor, ruled 10c higher. Quarantine steers were 510c higher and active at the advance. Arrivals of butcher steers were small and the demand strong. Hardly enough were on sale to make a fair list of the market.

The few arrivals quickly changed hands at fully steady values with last Friday. There was a small tun of stockers and feeders and the trttie ruled quiet at steady prices with last Friday. There was someJ inquiry from the country. STEERS. No Av 11....
