Applause. A community in which every
mau, black or white, rich or poor can vote
once and have that vote honestly counted.
Applauso and cheers. Fellow citizens,
there is, I am happy to say, in this greet
ing and salutation to the chief magistrate
of the union no partisanship. We are
here not as Rcpublicahs, not as Democrats,
but as citizens of the United States and
citizens of the state of Kansas. There is
no stato line in our globing salutation.
There is no north, no wnitn, no east, no
west, in our greeting and balutation. We
greet him as the foremost citizen of the
Republic, and bid him hail and farewell
on his journey eastward." Great ap
plause. Ex-Governor Anthony and several other
gentlemen of distinction addressed the
vast audience before the meeting ad
journed. The president and his party were driven
rapidly from the fair ground to the special
train which polled out promptly at 4
, o'clock. The Kansas City committees
composed of representatives from the
municipal government, headed by Mayor
Holmes, and from the commercial club and
other organizations, joined the party at
Among them were Major William Warner,
Pastmastor Nnftzinger. Collector Devel,
United States Marshal Tracy, and others.
At Lecoraptou a brief stop was made,
and the president bowed, and was cheered
loudly by the largo crowd assembled. No
further stop was made until the train
reached Lawrence. There another large
assemblage greeted the president, and the
school children added to the welcome by a
profusion of lwuquots and the waving of
Hags. The president's seech was brief
and was as follows:
A TALK AT LAWRENCE.
"My friends I am sure you are kind,
and the greatest kindness you can do me
is not to ask me to attempt to speak again
so recently, after attempting at Topeka to
taiK to an me rest 01 ine people in tvnna
laughter who are not here. I sup
posed when the train pulled into
this city that the entire citizenship
of the state was in the immense crow d con
gregated at Topeka today. My voice was
so strained in attempting to spk there
that 1 will only say to you tiiat it gives me
great pleasure to see you and to speak to
jou even for a moment, at this hospitable
town. All the inspiration connocted with
the story of the early history of Kansas
clusters around the city of lyiiwrence. I
am sure you will llnd in that story inspira
tion and suggestion that will keep the
cause of liberty ever near your hearts."
The run from this point to Kansas City
was made rapidly and without incident,
the presidential train arriving there at
5:43 p. in.

Under the escort of the Hon. Will

How They Tarn Out a Quick Cut The
Chalk Method and the I'hoto-Ecgrrav-injj
Process Unknown to the 2ewt
papcrs of a Few Tears Since.
The illustration of newspapers Is a new
branch of art. Ever since its beginning
its apprentices have been trying to find out
the simplest and most effective methods
for the reproduction of drawings in order
that they might be made with the greatest
possible quickness, engraved on metal
with the utmost attainable celerity and
printed clearly and well at tho rate of 20,
000 copies per hour. To such perfection
have th. processes for this purpose been
brought that the turning out of pictures
all ready for the lightning presses Is now
adays hardly more than a matter of a few
THE CnALK METHOD.
Most interesting of the processes em
ployed in newspaper illustration, from the
point of view of simplicity, is vhat maybe
termed tho "cbalk method." Tako a thin
bed of smooth chalk laid upon a metal sur
face, and draw upon it with a fine steel
point any picture you mny desire. The
steel point will cut the lines of the picture
out of the chalk to the metal, and thus you
will have it in the shape of an intaglio.
Make n stereotype from this intaglio and
you have your metal plate to print the
picturo from. Could anything be more
Such is tho idea of the chalk process. In
applying it. instead of pure chalk various
mixtures are used, such as plaster of Paris,
which is merely chalk in another shape,
with a certain proportion of a white Caro
lina clay. The stuff, pulverized nnd stirred
up with water, is spread over a rectangu
lar sheet of polished steel, as you would
spread a slice of bread with butter, to an
even thickness of about one thirty-second
of an inch. Now you are ready to begin
operations as soon as you havo baked tho
steel plate in an oven for a whilo until the
chalk layer has been rendered perfectly
A QUICK PKOCESS.
It will hardly do for you to attempt to
draw your picture directly upon the chalk,
lest you make mistakes. The best way is
to make your sketch on a piece of paper,
and then, laving it down upon the chalk
surface, go over the lines with a pencil
point, which will indent the paper and
leave marks beneath upon the chalk. Lift
the drawing and you find under it, in tho
chalk, its reproduction. Now you apply
your steel point directly to the chalk, cut
ting all tho lines of the drawing down
through the chalk to tho surface of the
steel plate. When you finish the opera
tion tho dark steel of the plato shows
through the chalk in all the lines of the
sketch. And theso lines are perfectly
clean and sharp, thanks to the keenness
of tho knifeliko steel point employed. All
you havo to do for the rest is to pour molt
en lead over the chalk surface in a mold
and let it get cold. Tho lines that are cut
out of chalk will bo reproduced in relief
upon the lead, and thus you will havo
your metal engraving to print the news
paper picture from, mounting it for the
purpose on a block thick enough to make
it level with tho type.
Though so advantageous for its simplic
ity the chalk method is not so good for fine
work in the way of sketches and portraits
as tho "zinc process," so called. Tho
former, however, by reason of its cheap
ness, is most useful to provincial news
papers which cannot afford tho compara
tively expensive photographic plant re
quired by tho latter. In the zinc process,
to begin with, an ordinary photograph
reduced to the required size is taken with
n camera of the pen-and-ini: sketch drawn
on cardboard by the artist Next a smooth
plate of zinc is "flowed over" with an albu
men solution that forms a rensitized skin
on the surface, the glass negativo of the
picturo is laid upon this zinc plate and the
two are put together in thesunlight. What
are to bo tho black lines of the printed
drawing nro of course white and transpar
ent in the negative. The sunlight goes
through wherever the negativo is trans
parent, and Iris the effect of hardening
the sensitized skin leiienth, so that it
clings tightly to the zinc. It requires only
one minute to perform this operation.
DltAGON'S KI.OOD FINISHING.
Now the zinc plare i taken and given a
coating over the sensiti.ed skin of lithog
raphers' ink, rubbed on with a roller,
after which the plato is washed. In all
places where thesunlight has not struck
the zinc, owing to tho opacity of the
gloss negative, the sensitized skin readily
washes off, together with ink that covers
it, but elsewhere it clings. Thus after tho
washing tho perfect drawing in ink re
mains upon tho zinc plate. To mako the
ink lines harder the plate is brushed with
powdered dragon's blood. Then it is
plunged into a bath of acid, which eats
away tho zinc wherever it is not protected
by the ink. so that whin it is taken out tho
hneaof the drawing are found all raised
above the rest of the surface of the plate,
like a map for the blin . and when mount
ed "type high" on a n etnl base you have
your "cut" ready to print from.
"Processes" havo infinitely multiplied
within the last few years so much so, in
fact, that the student of engraving is aghast
at contemplating their variety. At present,
however, the zmo method seems to be tho
most available for journals of the period.
At all event.s, it Is employed by a majority
of the hie newspapers of the country.
Considerably ned for newspaper illus
tration is that of photo-engraving, which
oniewhat resembles the zinc method. A
glass plate, however, is Used instead of a i
metal one. This glass plate is covered with I
a thin laj-er of sensitized gelatine, which is I
permitted to dry. Then the photographic
glass negativo of the drawing, made with "
the contra jut as in the other casr, is lafd '
over the gelatine, and the glass plate and
the negative, with the gelatine layer be
tween them, are put in the sua for half an
The light harden the gelatine and makes i
it cling to the glass pUte wherevpr it
strikes through the negative. m that when I
tne glare plate is subsequently put into )
water all the rest of the gelatine comes off,
leaving the drawing on the glass in gela
tine lines. Moifot plaster of Paris is spread
over the plate next ami permitted to
harden; when it is taken off it i.s a mold of
the drawing. From this nioki a plaster
"relief is made, awl a reproduction of
mrta! in this relief by stereotyping is the
plate io print witn.
These are the three method hv which
newspapers produce the pictures which go
m far to brighten up nod help out the in
terest of the columns of the daily press.

THE CRAB WA8 THERE.
The Strange AdTentnre of an Old Gen
tleman in a Street Car.
When a Boulevard horse car started on
its return trip from the Thirty-fourth
street ferry it bore a happy family of four
children, with a thin woman in command.
One small boy of the party carried with
great solicitude a handkerchief, which was
apparently filled with sand. This burden
was laid on a seat and quickly forgotten in
the joy of looking out of the window.
The car filled rapidly, however, and at
length a benevolent old gentleman with
gold rimmed glasses and an ante-bellum
beaver climbed oa board and sat unsus
pectingly down on the handkerchief. A
few moments later the small boy proprietor
looked around in alarm.
"What is it, Mikie?"
"Have vou got de crab!"
An expression of alarm twined In and
out among the freckles on "Mikie's" face,
and he looked anxiously at his venerable
"Been to the seashore, my little man?"
Inquired the old gentleman kindly.
"Dig in the sand?"
"Bet we did. We brung a quart of it
up in a hanky an' you're sittin' on do crab."
"Guess you've squashed him."
"What do you mean, little boy?" said
the old man, fidgeting nervously.
"Crab in de hank, and you're on it."
"Gracious me, you don't say so," said
tho horrified old man, and then ho arose
quickly for a man of his years, gave one
glance at his sandy and crab colored coat
tail and fled.
"You're a bad boy."
"De hank has gone." New York Trib
