Agriculture, averages SI for tho entiro

Seeding was late in the States of tho
central valleys, because of drought, and
tho soil was, therefore, not in tho best
condition, but the mild winter continued
growth until tho plants were too luxuri

of March. Recent frosts have cut down
tho growing plants quite generally, and
in wet or submerged areas the roots
have been destroyed. There are reports
of recuperating by seeding and renewed
growth in this region. Where tho roots
are intact great improvement will fol

the' roots arc so well developed is favor

In the South the soil was generally in
better condition, and tho early sown de
veloped rapidly, and in December and
January suffered more or less from at
tacks of the Hessian fly. In March
frosts were very general, discoloring
and sometimes killing the plants down
to the ground, but not injuring the roots,
except in wet places. The crop looks
brown in New York, but the State agent
believes it is better than it looks. The
other Middle States return wheat in

the question of who should be Chancel

F. IL Snow at a salary of 4,000 per an

Dr. Thwing, of Minneapolis. Minn. Tho
reason for this reduction is not known.
Tho selection of Prof. Snow gives
universal satisfaction here, and un
doubtedly the same feeling existe
throughout the State. In the present
state of affairs it is undoubtedly the
very best thing that can be done for the
university. Prof. Snow will honor tho
institution in tho Chancellor's chair as
he has honored the professorship of
For twenty-three years Prof. Snow has
occupied the chair of natural science
and In this quarter of a century's work
he has shown himself to be a thorough,
conscientious and indefatigable worker.
Outside of his regular duties he has
prepared a catalogue of over 600
species of the plants of Kansas, a
list of Kansas birds of over 300
species, a list of animals of the State, a
list of the fishes of the State and a list
of the insects of Kansas, Colorado and
New Mexico, and has collections of
these in tho university museum com
prising 200,000 specimens and over 20,-
000 species. There is no other State in
the Union that contains such a vast ac

entire museum collection is valued at

Report of a Special Committee of Inquiry
as to the Operations of the Law.
Washixgtox, April 12. In a report
made to the executive committee of the
National Civil-Service Reform League,
the special committee appointed to in
quire into the operation of tho reform
law details tho investigation made
among members of Congress as to tho
distribution of patronage and says: "It
is not an extravagant estimate to say
that more than one-third of the entiro
time of these Congressmen (time which
should properly be devoted to -their leg'
islativc duties) is consumed in the dis
tribution of offices."
The committee inquired into tho ex
tent to which this patronage interfered
with the proper performance of legisla
tive duties. It found that in the last
Congress a little more than 10 per cent.
of the measures introduced passed both
houses. Of the 17.07S measures intro
duced, more than 11,000 never came out
of committee and 1,400 of those reported
never reached consideration.
The neglect of public business here
shown, the committee thinks, is due to
tho spoils system. The committee com

California Cut Up Over Lejral Delays and
Sax Fhaxcisco, April 12. A circular
has been issued by the California State
Bar Association, which contains an ad
dress by ex-Judge Thomas P. Stoney,
president, in which he states that a well
founded dissatisfaction with the condi
tion of the lawand with the administra
tion in this State prevails widely. He
says there is a deplorable uncertainty as
to what the law is, owing to the want of
harmony in the opinions of the Justices
composing the bupreme Court and, added
to this condition of affairs, there is an
intolerable delay in obtaining justice in
the ordinary courts of judicial procedure.
He declares that if the evils complained
of are as serious as they are claimed to
be, the only adequate remedy will be in
a thorough reorganization of the system
by an amendment of the Constitution.

Pithy Points In Insurance Commissioner
"Wlldert Annual Report "Wildcats
TorEKA, Kan., April 12. The twen
tieth annual insurance report has been
received from the State Printer. Com
missioner Wilder in his introductory
"It has been the providence of nature,"
salth the Brahmin Pllpay, speaking of the
oriental cat, "to give to this creature nine
lives Instead of one." This record was made
in the very dawn and Infancy of the race of
cats. If the history of the Kansas cats in
this series of reports seems somewhat long,
repetitions and tiresome, the indulgent
reader will tear In mind this ancient saw
relative to feline longevity, and will brace
up when be remembers that, although a bo
gus insurance company has as many live
as a cat, yet it liveth not forever; It may
and surely will die when the nine lives are
ended; and moreover It can be killed.
The work of clearing the State of fraudu
lent insurance companies was began nearly
three years ago, and the job is nearly
finished. It has been a very unpleasant one.
Every company put an end to has had in
terested friends, persons drawing salaries,
to defend it and assail me. Ihey have
spared no epithets; nothing that was false
and dirty and vile. This was expected and
no complaint Is made. The danger was In
making the burden to the department
greater than It could bear and thus breaking
It down. The months have passed, calumny
and bribery hsve done their work, the press
and people have sustained the department
and the bogus companies are dead.
Every wildcat company In Kansas has been
organized by outsiders; by professional In
suronce crooks and lawbreakers who came
here to w ork this field. The Insurance crook
Is a very sharp man ; he knows every trick

This Is a long story to be told of one set ot

a safe field for Insurance pimps. Every va

here. Ihe tax levied on our people has
been a heavy one. The home burns; the
destitute owner recovers no Insurance, al
though re has paid for it. The head of the
family dies; he has paid for Insurance, but
his widow and children get nothing Hang

too severe a punishment for many a rascal

men, to listen to their falsehoods, to know

are wanting in dignity.

Charles IX. and Vitelllus before hire
made the cold remark: "The body of a
dead enemy always smells welL" When we
call to mind the men, women and children
robbed of many thousands by Insurance,
thieves in Kansas, we do not stop to shed
tears over the fallen frauds. Nothing so
well became them as their departure. I heir
presence hero for many a year has left so
many ruined homes that neither laws nor
officers will ever permit their return. No

Whelps who have no moral or political
character were deeply grieved because last
year's report lacked dignity. Ilynes, Hack
ney, Fuller. Burton, Ormsbee, the whole
crowd of Insurance ghouls, had their sensi
bilities sho ked by the coa-sencss of that
report. Subsequent events, examinations of
companies and suits in court would bint
that the truth of tho report m.iy have been
the chief cause, with this t lass of persons, ot
its unpopularity. But dignity Is the demand
of the d sgruntled, let them have It. These
persons and their friends in the Legis
lature were aIo worried about the archives,
the public archives, the archives ot Kan
sas. "Is this undignified report to be
permitted to go Into the public archives?
Surely --ucb an ouirase will not be allowed."
If archives are "a place wherein all the
records are kept In chc.-t and bcxes." then
Kanas has none. But l-it year's Insurance
report Is la such archives as Aintrfcins have
in mot of the Stat of our Union. The
remedy for the "lack of dlgniti " and archive

EXIT THE BENDERS.
The Two Suspects Released at Oswego,
Oswego, Kan., April IL Messrs.
Webb and James, attorneys for the al
leged Bender women, who nad been in
jail here for several months, began
habeas corpus proceedings before Pro
bate Judge Calvin yesterday morning.
County Attorney Morrison and F. H.
Atchison appeared for the State.
The evidence of the most importance
consisted of affidavits and depositions
and the oral evidence of the old lady,
An affidavit of one of the daughters,
Mary Gardi, of Michigan, was read,
showing that in 1S72 and lb"3 her mother,
Mrs. Griffith, then Marks, was confined
in the house of correction at Detroit,
Mich., for the crime of manslaughter,
and the affidavit of the superintendent
of the reformatory proved that during
those two years Mrs. Griffith was con
fined in the house of correction at De
troit. Other depositions showed her
arrest and sentence at the time when
the Benders committed tho horrible
butcheries in Kansas.
At the preliminary hearing Mrs.
Griffin denied knowing any thing of a
man by the name of Shearer, but she
admitted having married him in Ionia,
Mich., in 1872, changing her name from
Marks to Shearer. Sho explained thii
discrepancy by saying that at tho pre
liminary examination sho did not wish
to have it become known that she was
at one time a Shearer, as the records oi
the courts would show her conviction
and sentence for manslaughter.
The State introduced Mr. Stewart,
who swore that Mrs. Griffith was old
The arguments of counsel were heard
and the court took the matter under ad
visement for a few moments.
Judge Calvin then announced that he
could assume no greater jurisdiction
than tho judges at the preliminary, and
they had found sufficient evidence to
bind the suspects over. The evidence
of the daughter was looked upon
with suspicion, as sho was a chip
of tho old block, yet tho evidence of
persons who knew her mother when she
was confined in prison in 1ST2 and 1873
was sufficient proof to him that the
woman could never bo convicted and
the court ordered that the two be dis
charged. The county commissioners bought the
women a ticket to Nilcs, Mich., and
they will start for that place this morn
ing. This is the third effort of tho county
to bring the Benders to justice and pre
sumably the last one.

Public For the Fun of Fighting.
Topeka, Kan., April 11. Wednesday
the Board of Railway Commissioners or
dered the Missouri Pacific to put a regu
lar passenger train on its line between
Topeka and Fort Scott, and yesterday a
similar decision was rendered on tho pe
tition ot tho citizens of Wilson, Mont
gomery and ChautauquaCounties against
the Missouri Pacific The petitioners
demanded tho restoration of passen-
'er service on the Lerov &
.'ancy Valley air line railroad, of
which tho respondent company is lessee.
The board directs that such service be
supplied by May 1, and in concluding
its summing up of the case says:
"We can not be blind to the fact 1'aat
railroad managements do not always,
even when practicable to do so, confino
their passenger servico strictly to the
limits of public requirements and the
production of self-sustaining revenue.
"Even now, while the dwellers upon
the prairie who have voluntarily taxed
themselves to supply decent railroad fa
cilities, aro protesting against being
hauled about at the rear end of froight
trains, and their protest is met with the
plea that better facilities can not be af
forded, tens of thousands of dollars of
revenue aro being wasted by railroad
companies operating in th s territory in
what is curiously called a passenger rate
war, which is a species of amusement
which certain young men who aro set to
conduct passenger traffic indulge in
when they get tired of base-ball, and
who ought to be sent to Jericho until
their beards havo grown, and sober
minded men put in charge. If this were
done, railroad companies could afford t
give peoplo on tho prairies a chance, ot
at any rate the plea that it does not pay
would comb with a more impressive
