'Topeka. Kan, Feb 9 Holten
Kan, was purged of its "joints" to
day. , The purging process was ac
complished bp a band of not- least
looo determined citizens, who took
the law into their : own hands and
meted out summary justice to the
"jointists'' of the cityt Three "joint
were put out of business, and Holt
en is a dry town for the first time
in 15 years. - '
The. citizens sof Holten held " a
meeting last night and decided that
the joints must be closed at once.
This afternoon at three o'clock they
met at the Methodist church, and,
after arms evangelistic exercises,
they started out to do their work.
There were about 300 people at the
church but it soon became known
what was going on, and - soon the
main street of the city was crowded
people anxious to see the work ac
complished. - There were a number of officers
in the Crowd and they led the way
to the hrst joint, which was Kept
by a woman named Hicks, on the
south side of the public sqaare.
This has for years been one of the
most notorious places of the city.
The crowd broke in the doors and
took out all the liquor, emptying it
in the street. They then broke up
all the fixtures in true Mrs Nation
style, not leaving a whole thing
that could be used in the joint bu
siness. ; The proprietress of 'the
joint tried to leave, but the crowd
refused to let her.
When the demolition of the Hicks
joint was complete, the crowd start
ed to do the same thing with . the
other joints of the city, two in num
ber. The proprietors ,- of these
joints, by working very hard; man
aged to turn all their liquor out, be
by the time . the crowd reached
their place of bnsiness. They plead
ed earnestly to be allowed ; to keep
the fixtures and promised on their
oaths never again to sell ' another
drop of liquor in Holten. : One ' of
the jointists, a man named Ander
son, got down on his knees and sup
plicated the crowd .not to destroy
his nxturee, as it would : : ruini'nim
financially, and - he promised to
have them out of town in an . hour.
The citizens decided to give the re
maining jointists a few hours with
in which to leave the .city. v".
- There waa not - a semblance of
lawlessness at any time durin the
the progress of the smashing. Law
yers, newspaper men and business
men helped swell the crowd.; which
was composed of some of the best
people of Holten. T After the smash
ing had been completed, the guard
ians of law went, to the Methodist
church and had a thanksgiving ser
vice over the successful';', result of
their work., Tonight a meeting was
held in " Holten; and "ar vigilance
committe was organized to see, that
a joint- will never again .have a
chance to do business there. - The
members of the committe,. say that
the first joint that starts there will
be immediately smashed and the
owner banished from 'the - city.
There ia great ejoicing in Holten
tonight. The people say- they ac
complished in two hours what the
officers have not been able to do in
15 years. .

i Denver, Feb. 8 The News prints
the following this morning: Ac
cording to an authoritative report,
the same interests that control the
Union Pacific have secured control
of all the leading, railways of Col
orado. The list includes the Den
ver & Rio Grande, Colorado Mid
land, Rio Grande Western1 and Coir
orado & Southern. . - . v ' .
If this feat is accomplished, -the
Union Pacific is ,to be the main
artery of traffic across the conti
nent, and the lines which have been
named will' be subsidiary to a vast
transocntinental system connecting
New York and Sah Francisco. ...
.The News gives, Daniel Guggen
heim, the chairman; of the execu
ti ve committee'. of the American
Smelting Company, as ! authority
for4,he above statemant and credits
him with the, following statement:
'I am not a railroad man, but I
will say that - .the same interests
which have control of the Union
Pacific have secured control of the
Denver & Rio Grande." : -
: The following bulletin, issued by
a local firm of stockbrokers, has
caused a great deal of s peculation
in railroad circles:
"We get suggestion Wrom good
source in New York that at a meet
ing next ' Monday Union -. Pacific
ay decide to run r the Southern
Pacific as a feeder to former, which
would be a good thing for Union
Pacific, but perhaps not bullish on
Southern Pacific as a feeder was a
possibility. ," ' ,
,"The Union Pacific,' said one,
"may take hold and giv the Will
amette Valley terminal rates, thus
making the Southern Oregon branch
a feeder for Eastern business.. - But
the questions is,,- will the whole
Southern Pacific line be operated as
a fesdep?.. I doubt it. The Union
Pacific may be a big enough dog to
wag the Southern as tail, but to
us out here it looki as -though the
Union should be-the tail."", r '
. "President, Hays' sudden sum
mons to the East," said another,
"looks as N though he was called
5. L. Klines
to quote prices on every article in
few to give you an idea just what
there there to attend the meeting
mentioned in the bulletin. It . is
not at all unlikely that the Union
has the upper hand, and that it will
do as it pleases with the Southern.
New York, Feb. 8 A special to
the World from "Washington5 says:
A new system of wireless telegraphy
has been developed by the Weather
Biireau; - ' ' -. ' v rs--
"It is a success.";' said ; Willis S
Moore, chief of the bureau. '. "We
have been experimenting for a" year
at Cobb's Island,' in the Potomac
River 70 miles below ' Washington.:
We have, completed -an' apparatus
that we expect 'will : enable ub 'to
signal ships 500 miles or more out
at sea.' V VVe shall oon send but
ships equipped with' receiving ' in
struments. We have just comple
ted a; station vat Roanoake,; N, C,
and will soon have stations at Hat
teras and Cape Henry. ; ;f f
; " We have succeeded, in telegraph
ing ' perfectly with" . "our wirer
less " system for - 60 miles over a
rough country around Washington.
That, I believe, is fully equal to the
best transmission : that -haB ever
been accomplished by the Marcono
method. Our system is quite dis
tinct from his, and is being devel
oped along our own lines, j j ' f
'We succeeded in sending mes
sages for some distance from a staff
only three feet high. We establis hed
regular communication between
the laboratory and Washington, 6o
miles. One of our men has a farm
near Fort Myer, Va., just across
froai Washington. A staff loo feet
high was on the place and at the
top we placed our instruments. We
were able to communicate with the
island as freely as though - we were
working over a wire. The speed of
the waves was practically .that of
light. We used a : system of dots
and dashesand our receiver was of
the 'sounder' type. We read mes
sages by sound. 'We ex'pect how
ever to develop a receiver that ;will
record messages ' . v v ,
.''Notwithstanding our ' success, it
does not seem th& wireless telegra
phy is developed yet to- the r point
where' it can be used for ordinary
commercial purposes on land. The
earth disturbance's and the condi
tions that surround cities would
prove obstacles." ' " ' - '
