MATTER OF REGfcEf.
Life is a mattjr of surprise, bat one
of the gresieBt is the newa id tie Wfz *te
of Wednesday that Mr. L. - K'rb*
to resign sa i uporiit ;ndent of the Ale ?
andf'a Elec'ric Company aod bo B^"
cseded by Mr. 0. L. Ho*sel, of Euporia,
A8 a cor. u ner I hardly beheve-iBacha
thing pCBBibie, knowing Mr. k?by and
realizing the respect and cocfiJence re
pmed in him by the majority of AWx
drians from which tbie company.draw
its substance I believe I echo he sen
timers ol all the consumers of this cor
poretioa when I Bay ih?t no man in
public life stands higher in the est ms
tion of those ?ith whom he dea.s than
Lee Kirby. Hia life bns been devoted
to the electric.1 busing, every tcuia of
his being is electiical, his ways b&ve
their electrical effect and ho baB in
stated the system in places in
which ihere was the slightest hope. H?v
iog been in onr midst for 21 ysara be
knows oor pacp'e and it is a matter of
regret that be is t> sepatnt) from them
Maj 1. When he took charge of this
p!aat 10 months ago complaint was
king of the hoar and since he has been
Boperintocdent everything has been
as smooth a? the Dyke when the
Indiaus left for home. Not to tie
in coy way suggestive, U is apropos to
=ay that the Alexandria EUct-lc Co , in
recognition of Mr. K'rby ban lokt a
mechanic of ocqueatloned ability, the
consumers a wa?m friend, and the
citv a man who protected hi" cwnpanv
and at the same time conducted himself
with a demeanor which demanded
enlarged businesp. I may be mistaken but I
really believe that the acceptance .of this
resignation is a mistake the Alexandria Elec
tric Company will ? ^ "^et oncc-and that
U a life time. 1 wiA Mr. Kirby that lawj
which will come to ell true men who are ai
clean in their deameator and Jeajng aa^ho

SPEAKER CANNON A "WET."
Speaker Canuon has gone "wet," like
h;.? home town of Danville, III. Ha con
fided the fact to R?presenUf*e B;r
tboldi, of St. Louis, yesterday. He Baid
he had been aching for some time to go
ou' west and make speeches in opposl
tion to the "dry" movement. He par
ticnlarly wanted tojampict) the bgtt
against tbe prohibitionists or local op
tionlfts in his home town, bnt thought
it impolitic to do bo bictuie it Bsemed to
him a cinch the the town would go dry,
owing to the strenuous campaign tbe
probibltlonitU had been making thero
for week?. Women and children had
been holding daily and night parades,
prayer meeting and temperance rallies,
and tbe Bpeaker thoagbt It wbb up with
the "wets." .
Their unexpected victory Tirsd&y
tickled th9 speaker immensely. In
fact, it mado him feel bo good he forgot
h'n caotioD, and he announced yester
day to Dr. Bartholdt jast where be stood
on tbe booz; question. It has been long
known in Washington and elsewhere
t'lat in practice Mr. Caonon was not a
temperance crank. But where ho ttood
p)litically on the liquor question had
been Bomethirgof a mystery uLt.l today.

Many of the Cairnrona's paessngers
were on the poiut of jumping overboard
in their terror and were e'.t'ier forcibly
restrained by others or rfaseured by
tbe megaphone meas^ages of members
of the crew that there would be no
