TO SUE FOR THEIR DIPLOMAS
I TOPEKA BOYS REFUSED TO
WEAR CAP AND GOWN.
Washburn College Withheld Parch-

Seniors Resort to Law.
Topeka, Kansas.—Suit to compel
ths faculty of the law department of
Washburn college to deliver diplomas
to Waldo Morris and O. E Waggoner,
both of Topeka, aeulors in the law
school, will be tiled in the Shawnee
county district court. The students
allege they are entitled to the diplo-
mas and that because they refused to
wear the "cap and gown" at the com-
mencement exercises, the diplomas
were denied them.
The petition will cite that Waggon-
er and Morria were successful in
passing the regulation examinations
which entitled them to diplomas from
the law department. When the plana
for the commencement exercises were
made known. Morria and Waggoner
announced they would not wear the
“cap and gown.”
The faculty members thereu|»on de-
cided that the recalcitrant seniors
should not receive diplomas. This
stand was upheld by the board of
trustees of the college at a special

BUSINESS WAITS ON POLITICS
CONGRESSMEN IGNORE EVERY-
THING BUT CONVENTIONS.
Occasional Calls for Quorum Inter-
rupt Cloakroom Political Argu-
ments—Tariff is Forgotten.

mitted dreadful ravages.

Washington, D. C.—Congress feels
as much like work as a small boy
who haa to hoe the potatoes when the
circus is la town. It juat simply baa
no heart in the business. There's too
much big politics in the air.
It looks now aa if the statesmen
would not be able to settle down to
their normal frame of mine and tend
to business until after both the Re-
publican and Democratic conventions.
And then will come the Fourth of
July. So most persons about the cap-
ital have settled down to the convic-
tion that there will be no adjournment
until the middle of July. Many be-
lieve It will run along until August.
Ab for getting either house or sen-
ate to concentrate on a piece of legis-
lation. that is almost an Impossibil-
ity. Business is done with only a
small part of the members present.
It takes hard skirmishing to get a
quorum together. When there is a
call for a quorum, there is a re-
luctant breaking up of political argu-
ments In the cloakrooms, and mem-
bers hurry Into the chamber and
answer their names and then go out
and talk more politics.
Little Interest Is manifested In what
becomes of tariff. Interest may re-
vive after the conventions, but It is
utterly lacking at present.
ALUMINUM TRUST IS DESTROYED
Decree of Federal Court Puts an End
to Combinations to Control
Output or Prices.
Somebody might confer a benefit
upon humanity by devising some kind
of a scheme whereby people could
learn how to operate launches before
venturing on the water.
Surgeons have succeeded In grafting
the cornea of a rabbit's eye upon the
eye of n man It will perhaps be only
natural for him to shy off when he
sees a dog approaching, after this.
Pittsburgh. Pa.—For the purpose of
destroying the alleged substantial
monopoly of the aluminum trust, an
agreed decree was entered in the
United States district court here
against the Aluminum Company of
America. The decree abrogates al-
leged unlawful contracts and the com-
pany is forbidden to participate In any
combination or agreement to control
the output or prices of aluminum.
The decree may be modiAed upon
the production of evidence that it is
working an injustice. Application for
modification, however, cannot be
made oftener than once in every three

Truskett Case Again Delayed.
Independence. Kan.—Attorneys for
A. A. Truskett, charged with the mur-
der of John D. S. Neely, asked that
the fourth hearing of the case be
postponed until October, and Judge
Flannelly grunted the request, over
the protest of the state's attorney.
The Judge held that It would be very
difficult to obtain a Jury at this tints
when the farmers are so busy,
GOT HIS PRICE FOR CORN AT LAST
Kansas Man Held Crop Four Years,
Refuting Less Than SO Cents—
Haa 100,000 Buthela.
Cottonwood Falls, Kansas.—After
bolding his corn crop which he re-
fused to sell for less than 80 centa
a bushel for four years, C. C. Smith,
one of the most widely known farm-
ers of Cedar Point, has kept his
word and was at last offered his
price. Now he Is unloading nearly
10,000 bushels of corn.
For storing and holding grain for
long periods. Smith, undoubtedly,
holds the state record.
If Smith sells all of his 10,000
bushels of corn before his new wheat
crop comes on. It will be the first time
in 25 years that all of his cribs and
granaries, waich fill a barnyard near-
ly as large as a city block, will have
been entirely empty.
San Quentin, Cal.—A demonstration
which was interpreted as a protest
against prison food, occurred in the
general mess bail of San Quentin
penitentiary at noon. ‘The state pris-
on board, which has been in session
for two days, was startled by the
sudden shrieks and howls of 1,2000
convicts, who braved the wrath of
their guards, one being killed and two

As must have been known to the
prisoners, one of the tasks on which

They are a happy Sewlckley couple.
They haven't been married very long.
In fact, the honeymoon has barely
waned. An elderly friend met the
bridegroom downtown yesterday and
■lapped him on the back.
"Well, happy as a lark, I suppose?”
“How's the cooking?”
'T have one trouble there. It’s just
this, n<y w ife has been preparing angel
food every day for dinner.”
“You must be getting tired of It."
“I am. Yet I feel a hesitancy about
saying anything. How soon after the
honeymoon would It be proper to ask
for beefsteak and onions?”—Pittsburg

Chicago, June 8.—Referendum votes
by unions of nine crafts of shopmen
employed on railroads running west of
Chicago show a majority for a sympa-
thetic strike on the Harriman lines.
Next week a conference of Interna-
tional officers will decide on a course
of action. Only one union is said to
have favored remaining at work, but
a majority will make that vote In-
operative. It is said. July 1 is the~
date on which action is expected to
be taken. About 100,000 employes are
Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.—Alex-
anjro Arts, a Filipino, is now in the
Leavenworth county Jail awaiting his
preliminary hearing, charged with as-
sault upon Lieut. Daugherty. Lieut.
Daugherty, as officer of the day, was
making his rounds in Schofield hall,
a bachelor quarters for officers, when
he discovered Arts in one of the
rooms and ordered him to get out of
the building. The Filipino refused to
leave, and attacked the officer with
his fists, knocking him down and
severely bruising his face.
Aris has been in the United States
a little over two years, but in that
time he has become known as a bad
FOUND KANSAS COUNTERFEITER
N. C- Wilhite of Bucklln Held at
Wichita—Outfit Taken at
Wichita, Kansas.—The police here
have arrested N. C. Wilhite of Buck-
lin. Kan., and are holding him on a
charge of making counterfeit (5 cer-
tificates. He passed several of the
spurious bills here and in Newton,
Emporia and Kansas City. Detective

and went to Hutchinson, where he
got the outfit. Wilhite's young wife
did not know' her husband had been
dealing in spurious currency.
Cleared up a Kansas Murder.
Erie, Kansas.—The mystery of the
killing of Jonn Woodruff, a young
farmer who lived near Savonburg,
was solved by a Jury in the Neosho
county district court here about mid-
night when the jurorB returned ver-
dicts of guilty against Charles Fleener
and George Bundy. They were ar-
rested two weeks ago over the pro-
test of County Attorney Smith and by
order of Attorney General John S.
Dawson, and charged with the crime.
MAY IMPEACH JUDGE HANFORD
Representative Berger Aroused Over
Case of Seattle Man Deprived
Washington, D. C.—Encouraged by
a letter from Attorney General Wick-
ersham recommending re-opening of
the case depriving Leonard Oleson of
Seattle of citizenship because he was
a .Socialist, Representative Berger of
Wisconsin declared his intention of
urging Impeachment proceedings
against United States District Judge
Hanford, who decided the issue.
Oleson’s certificate of naturalization
was canceled by Judge Hanford on
testimony that Oleson subscribed to
the principles of the Socialist party.
Sailors Elect a Japanese.
Annapolis, Maryland.—For the first
time a foreign naval officer was
elected an officer of the Graduates'
association at the naval academy. He
Is Vice-Admiral Uriu of the Japanese
navy, who was graduated from the
United States naval academy in 1881.
More Gold Into Circulation.
Washington. D. C.—The constant
popular demand for new coins has
caused the government to resume the
coinage of gold, although the propor-
tion of bullion which the treasury is
authorized to hold In its vault! has
uot yet been reached.
Heard on the Waterfront.
Some ancient mariners were sitting
in a seaport tavern relating their ex-
periences of fog.i.
“Ah!” said one old salt, “I've seen
some pretty thick fogs In my time.
Why, off the coast of Newfoundland tho
fog was sometimes so thick that wc*
used to sit on the deck rail and loan
against It! We wrere sitting one night
as usual, with our backs to the fog,
when suddenly the fog lifted, and wo
all went flop Into the sea. A bit thick,
wasn't it ?"—San Francisco Cbroniclo.
“What is It?”
“Which union does a Jack of all
trades belong to?"
The Worst of It.
“Do you keep a cook, Mrs. Subub?"
“Madam, I not only keep the cook,
but also her entire family."
