Tho latest claim advanced for the spec

Four hundred million bushels of wheat
represents the wheat crop of this country
worth, as the price ranges, from three
hundred and forty millions to four hun
dred millions of dollars.
From speculation in this, as well as in
other classes of produce, immense for
tunes are made and in the different great
cities of the country is supported a class
who make their living solely by dealing
Does any one seriously believe that
through any system of deals, the crop
can be yearly made to sell for more than
it is worth? It is not reasonable to sup
pose that if it is forced up beyond its
value for awhile, it must sink again be
low its value, so that in the end with all
it8 variations, the purchasers pay for it
just what its true value is as compared
with what they can obtain elsewhere?
Meanwhile, as a great deal of money is
made by these deals, the question tbat
naturally suggests itself is who contrib
utes that, the purchasers or the produc
cr? The money comes from somewhere,
and the theory of the opponents of the
Butterworth bill is that, through the
manipulations of the speculators, the
purchasers are forced to pay a higher
price for the produco than they would
pay in the aggregate if there was no
speculation in the produce; in other
words, that they stand between the pro
lucers and consumers and prevent the
former from being ileeced by tho latter;
lnit in so doing the speculators force tho
consumers to pay a higher price for the
produce than it is worth, the speculators
and not the producers must reap almost
the entire benefit therefrom; for, while
the products remain from year to year in
alxmt the same pecuniary condition, al
though tho number of consumers con
stantly increases, the speculators draw to
themselves such a share of tho profits
that a continually accelerated movement
is attracted thereby to the city from tho
country, through the hope which is
thereby excited that this wealth can be
acquired much more easily in cities than
in the country. "While this movement
from country to tho city, then, adds
occasionally some shrewd, clear-headed
men to the successful men of the lay, it
also adds continually to the hosts of
paupers, who crowd the great cities and
contribute to their wonderfully rapid
It is the recognition of these facts that
has dictated the Butterworth bill, and no
amount of sneers can prevent attention
from being directed to tho thorough in
vestigation of this matter, nor any
amount of sophistry prevent the passage
of legislation to correct the evils arising
from this unhealthy condition.

The Troy Chief and Topeka Capital
usually agree to a dot as touching ques
tions of party and policy, but they don't
flop together on the question of prohibi
tion as related to the present campaign.
The Capital insists on making that the
issue, while the Chief disposes of it after
this brief fashion:
""Would it not be well for Republican
campaign speakers to devote less atten
tion to prohibition, and more to Republi
canism? Prohibition is a fixed fact and
cannot be altered. Many persons who
were originally opposed to it, have be
come reconciled and satisfied, and there
is no danger of its repeal. Then, why
tire the people out by ditininir it into
their ears in every speech? It becomes
tiresome, and keeps open a question that

that Old Mexico is waking up, and ener

pin-chased near this city and shipped on
yesterday direct to the City of Mexico. Two
car loads have already been sent to the

The only thing in the way of Kansas
realizing the greatest amount of direc

is a reciprocal arrangement whereby that

other words, tho inauguration of trade
reciprocity with Mexico would give Kan

that in almost ajl cass payment is made.
This is one of the highest tributes ever
earned by the people of a community,
large or small. A state whose industrial
population can borrow money on per
sonal character must take high rank. To
preserve a reputation for prompt pay
ment under such circumstances requires
incessant energy, indomitable pluck and
and a high degree of integrity. People

Kansas posssses ualities of quick reqe
cuporation in rich, easily tilled soil and

no advantages supplied from other
sources could give the habit of pro ecting
commercial reputation. Tlie habit is part
of the sturdy character of the people who
have settled tlie prairies of the sunflower
state. Its bankers have learned that it
can trust thoe productively engaged.
Bankers are slow to Ieani that lesson
usually, and tlie fact is laudatory of tlie
intelligence of the loaders as well as of
the high average of personal character
among the general population. The repu
tation is capital, because it commands
capital. It explains the astonishing re
cuperative power of the state. Kansas
lias its occasional trouble like other com
paratively new countries, and it may
make mistakes, but pluck and financial
honor combined will tide over far worse
misfortunes then ever have come or are

To the Editor of the Eacle.
It is generally conceded, I believe, tliat
the Kreutzer Sonata owes its popularity
not to its author, its publisher nor even
the contents of the book, but to Mr. John
When the post-office authorities de
clared it unfit to pass through the mails
people hastened to have it sent by ex
press, for liave it they would. They
were anxious to know what this man
who is call the "Russian prophet,' and
tlie "Second Christ,'' had written that
could be called obscene. The book is a
caricature of humanity and the world
rises up in an indignant protest, not be
cause the book is all untrue, but simply
because it is a good picture exaggerated.
The untruth of the book Is its best quali
ty. Because people try to find out how
much of this revolting picture is true,
it will start a line of thought that will
result in a benefit to humanity. The
utter lack of refinement makes the book
repulsive. I think no one could find any
pleasure in reading it. It contains
none of the honey of sensuous descrip
tion, which is found in the pernicious
books of Zola and Quida. I do not think
the book could have a degrading influ
ence. Perhaps showing up sensuality so
i grossly will do more good than if it were
He has carried his truth so far it is a
fallacy. Yet we must admit that the
brutal things which he says are the truth,
though somewhat distorted. Truth,
stripped of all its rose-colored illusions
but still the truth. We know that some
of the most infamous conventionalities
are accepted almost as a matter-of-course
by a large number of people, and for
which women are largely to blame be
cause they do not demand of men that
high order of morality which men de
mand of them. Women cannot afford
to be frivilous; yet, that many of them
are as light as thistle-down, is only too
true. And at woman's door lie half the
sins of tho world. It is her duty to re
fine, to cultivate, to uplift, be pure and
teach it, be it. Help to bring out all the
good and put down the hurtful. Any
woman can have influence, more or less,
for tho better. A beautiful woman's
presence can never be hurtful if she be a
good woman. And she has a right to be
as attractive as she can. And it is a libel
on the mass of women when Tolstoi ac
cuses them of self-adornment for ignoblo
purposes, and for the reasons he gives In
regard to motherhood. Yet women ciu
not resent it as they would like to, be
cause the shallowness and selfishness of
some women regarding the gravest du
ties is very plain to the world.
Ignorance is a crime, when one reflects
that tho social and conjugal relations
will be improved only when ignorance is
done away with. The depravation of
marriage is one of tho tragic consequen
ces of ignorance. We cannot disguise
tho fact that marriages aro largely foun
ded utKin physical attraction. And
"that with more people than ve
wish to admit. the marriage
contract is a chain binding two people
together, who have no mental or spir
itual adaptation for each other whatever;
and there never was any tie save ono of
physical attraction. We call it incom
patibility and they get a divorce after
becoming weary of each other.
When mothers teach their sons and
daughters to look for something more
than tho outer appearance, marriage
will cease to le so much of a failure, and
the divorces will have ceased.
Every human being strives consciously
or inconsciously to promote his own weil
being, and show people where tho error
is. and the wrong is half righted. Tolstoi
has been trying to show humanity where
some of tho cause for evil, wrong, and
unhappiness lies. And that within our
