KANSAS DEMOCRATS TO COMBINE
WITH THE POPULISTS.
The Stalwart Faction Snubbed by the
Jones Committee, and the State
Convention Called to Meet at
the State Capital iu t!u First
Week in July The Pros
pects Good for a Vo
ciferous Time at
of the Clans.
Topeka, Kan., Feb. 27. The stalwart,
or btraigfat-our, Democrats received a
black eye this at ternoou, when the regular,
or fusion, Democratic state central com
mittee decided upon July 3 for the btate
convention. The stalwarts had been ma
neuvering to secure an early convention,
but Chairman Jones of the regular com
mittee was obdurate, and pulled his
striugs so that ttie above date was selected.
The discussion of the fusion question was
somewhat protracted. As the fusionista
won the fight, it would seem as though
there was a probability of the populists'
being taken into camp.
Before the result of the ballot was
kuowu, Chairman Jones said:
"The action of the stalwarts will not in
fluence our.actioub in the least. We will
call a convention, but it is for the mem
bers of the committee to say when it is to
be held. The stalwarts cannot expect us
to pay any attention to them, as they only
cast about 150 votes last fall."
This would indicate a ligat between the
regulars and the fusiouists.
Topeka was selected as the place for
holding the convention.

W. L. Johnson,
Paul S. Mellingeis,
Your committee desires lurther to state
that they have closely investigated the ad
visability of the reduction of the wages of
tne street iorce and lite department aud
after due consideration have concluded
that S1.50 Der day for labbriug men on our
streets is little enough; that by tho time
they have their necessary liviug expenses
paid, without even enjoying au occasional
luxury of life, there is nothing left them.
The fire depirtmeut iu our city, as iu
every other city, deserves recognition and
appreciation. The necessary exposures
aud daugers of their positions are such as
entitles them to the present salaries they
receive, aud to reduce their wages, iu the
judgment of your committee, would tend
to impair and lower tho present efficiency
ot the department.
Your committee would further state
that after examining and investigating
every source where a reduction of expenses
could justly aud legally be made, find that
tho present administration has so far beon
exceedingly economical aud discreet, and
have and are reducing the indebtedness of
the city ever since it assumed control, and
that had it not been for the preceding and
.so-called "business administration," clos
ing up contracts with the water aud light
companies and other transactions which
were unnecessary and exorbitant, your
committee could honestly recommend
such reductions as would be profitable to
Iu conculsion we are opposed to the
present administration reduciugthe wages
of the street force aud fire department,
and feel that if the preceding administra
tion was kind and indulgent to corpoia
tious, that is no reason why this adminis
tration should be cruel aud unjust to the
laboring man. Respectfully suinuitted.

Grain A float, Which is Some
thing of a Revelation and
Which Causes Wheat to
Turn aud Climb Up
w.ird Again Trifle
Chicago, Feb. 27. Wheat recovered Its bul
lish tone today, and scored cent advance.
Fair buying, a reported decrease in the Eng
lish visible supply, and better clearances,
caused the advance. A little selling near the
close caused a slight reaction, but May closed
only cent from the top. Corn, oats and
provisions were fl-m but dull. The gain in
corn is J cent and In oats about tiie same.
May port Is 10 cents and ribs 7 cents higher.
Lard is without change, compared with yes
Wheat in the first few minutes of the ses
sion was extremely unkind to the shorts.
Yesterday they put wheat to the other party
at 59 and 594 cents, bur before twenty
minutes of today's session had passed they
were paying 59?4 cents to get it back. The
principal reason for the advance was the
revelation made by the returns of the small
quantity of wheat and flour put alloat last
week from the other countries, exclusive of
the United States and Canada, which export
these commo'litics. Including those three

! ". .. . . . . ' .-...,
Argentine, Kussla ana India, the total of the
week's contributions to the requirements of
the Importing countries was only 2.030,000
bushels. To this amount India contributed
nothing. The Chicago receipts today were 42
cars. Minneapolis reported 119 cars and
Dulutli 170 cars. A year ago Chicago got 3"7
cars. Minneapolis 109 and Duluth 10 cars. The
Liverpool market was quoted easy at un
changed prices and in tho French country
markets firmer. The English visible supply
was calculated to have decreased l,26,000
bushels last week. The Atlantic clearances,
as the figures came to hand, were giving
promise of a liberal total.aiid with the further
encouragement, the price of May whe.it rose
to 60 cents, or from H cent advance over
the opening quotation of today, and the clos
ing figures of the previous day. The export
clearances of wheat and flour from the four
principal Atlantic ports and New Orleans
amounted to about 420,000 bushels. Closing
cables were without any marked change. The
northwestern markets were strong and re
ported an urgent demand for cash wheat.
New York had to be propped up by the west
ern markets or it would apparently have
tumbled to the ground. The market here was
very sensitive and nervous with many sudden
changes within the range of COljIandsO'cents
for May. Tho bulls were inclined to sell at.
the higher of these two prices for a time, but
gained more courage later when the small
breaks were to be easily recovered from. After
selling at G0,'4 cents more than once, the mar
ket closed Willi sellers at 59J cents.
Corn was dull all day, very little interest or
activity being displayed and operations being
confined to room traders within a cent
range. A trifle better feeling was developed
toward the close. Opening trades for May
were yA cent lower than yesterday, prices then
advanced cent and May closed at the top.
In oats there was a fair trade and a slightly
easier feeling early, but the offering were wfll
taken, and a firmer feeling developed on the
strength in wheat, which carried prices up
cent for May, the close being about the
top. July was quiet and i cent higher.
Provisions opened lower on larger receipts
of live hogs than estimated and lower prices
for tomorrow. There was an apparent dis
position on the part of the local crowd to de
press prices, but good support by a prominent
broker and a leading packing institution and
some covering by shorts not only prevented
a break, but had the effect of advancing
values to yesterday's final figure. The
volume of trading, however, was slight, owing
to an absence of offerings. There was scarcely
anything doing during the balance of the ses
sion from the same cause. As a result prices
improved to a limited extent. Wheat was
firmer and that helped to sustain the market,
with the closing at the outside figures except
in lard. Compared with last night May pork
is 10 cents higher, May lard unchanged and
May rlbs7J cents higher.
Estimated receipts for tomorrow: Wheat, 23
cars; corn, 295 cars; oats, 130 cars; hogs, 30,

ous districts of his circuit. The col
onel, who lived a day's journey from
our place, always stood on his pier, with
a telescope in his hand, watching for
that cabin-boat, and when it hove in
6ight he ran up his flag as an invita
tion to the judgeand his retinue to
spend the night under his hospitable
roof. The judge then responded with
his flag, and with a splendid flourish we
sailed up to the colonel's pier, where
the family were now congregated. And
there were speeches of welcome made,
to which gracious responses were re
turned (delightfully florid and old
fashioned;) whereupon I, being a very
small boy, was passed down the long
row of the colonel's daughters (he had
seven,) and, much to my disgust,
kissed by each one of them. The
twelve oarsmen were sent to the ser
vants' hall, where the were abundant
ly entertained, and my grandfather
and I were welcomed once more in the
anteroom (the garden-parlor, they
called it) where a bottle of old port
was opened and our healths were drunk

And thus be continued from day to day
and from week to week our triumpha
progress from place to place in on

sure of two or three hospitable flags
waving their invitation n us between
noon and sun down. Often, when the
weather was bad, we were urged to
stay over two or three days in one
place, with all our oarsmen, and they
were housed and fed without money
and without price, and, what is more,
without producing the least ripple of
disturbance in the household. There
was something truly magnificent about
the hospitality of those days. The
Bilver twice or thrice as much as was
used was piled high on the table, in
order to show the dignity and the re
sources of the family; and there was an
air of quiet prosperity and abundance

DECISION DOES IT

Believed That the Act is fow a Dead
Letter and the Kesult Will be
Beneficial to the Railroads.
The Shorts .".re Seized
With a Mood to Cover."
Higher "Figures Es
tions of Stocks
New York, Feb. 27. While the volume of
bn-iness on the Stock exchange as not very
large, there was an approach to buoyancy in
the deHling-,aud an absence of bear sentiment,
wbichhada healthful effect upon the mar
ket. Among the causes which led np to this
result, the most proininent was the decision
in the United States district court at Chicago
regarding the railroad men and tho interstate
law. The point made is that under such a
ruling the interstate commerce act is to be re
garded a3 a dead letter, aud the conclusion Is
drawn that this state of affairs is beneficial
to the railroads. Consequently the slions
were in a mood to cover today, and their pur
chases, supplemented by buying by the room
traders, wen to make a rising market, which
did not meet with serious antagonism on tho
part of the bears. The news from Washing
ton was favorable to the hiigar Interests, and
all the hhares of the American Sugar Refining
company were benefitted thereby. It was
rumored that a heavy bear operator was en
gaged in a covering movement preparatory to
leaving town, and this, too, helped tho bull
sideof the market. The day was singularly
free from reports calculated to depress the
speculative mind, and the general trend of
prices throughout the day was in the direc
tion of higher figures.
At the opening of business prices were Ir
regular, on slight changes, but the market
quickly took an upward turn, and, under tbe
leadership of Sugar, St. Paul, Burlington, and
General Electric, the general list with a few
exceptions, recorded a material advance.
During the morning occasional reactions oc
curred in the general list, but the net result ot
the fluctuations was the establishment of
higher figures, and tho market swung Into
noon with a decidedly strong tono to the
speculation. Prices did not change materially
between midday and half past 1 o'ciock.belng
very firmly held; but at that hour, under the
lead of Sugar, a fractional reaction occurred.
The depression was ol brief duration, and dur
ing the last hour the market was strong, and
closed at or near the best figures of the day,
with prices H per cent above the closing
sales of yesterday.
Tho railway and miscellaneous bond mar

"One of the most noticeable change!
that have come about in my experi
ence," eays a Maine traveler of fiftj
years, 'is the evening life of our town!
and cities. Why, it isn't so many yean
ago that in any Maine city the placet
of business would all be open of ar
evening1. Lawyers would be in theii
offices, the mechanics in their shops,
the merchants in their stores and
everybody pegging away busily. MilU
and factories even would run until 7:0C
o'clock. 2sow go through almost any
Maine city or village of an evening and
you'll find the business wheels at a
standstill. The lawyers, mechanics,
merchants, in fact, almost everybody u
idle, No one now attempts to do mnefc
of an evening. Social life claims its
own when the sun goes down, and
either the home circle, the ciub. or the
theater has the people. Perhaps fiftj
years hence we'll no longer work after
noons." Kennebec Journal.
There are two totally distinct types
m Japan, which may almost be said to
be each other's opposites. The first,
which the Japanese themselves call
the Chinese or Corean, is the more com
mon. Those belonging to it have
round faces, flat noses, full cheeks,
rather thick lips very pretty ones
often and very good white teeth.
Those belonging to the second, or true
Japanese type, have long and compara
tively pale faces, nose arched, like the
beak of a bird, thin lips, large eyes
with not very strongly marked eye
brows, teeth mostly good, always very
white, but often long and irregular.
This is the aristocratic type, which
when at its best is really worthy of ad
miration. To be cal'ed handsome a
Japanese must belong to it, whilst
those of the Chinese cast of counte
nance are never more than pretty.
Strange to say, tbe moral character of
the sections of the commncity differ
as much as does their appearance. I
have noticed that, as a general rule,
tho," with Chinese faces are ray.
