The revolution that has In rwent
months taken place In the political koy
eminent of a majority of our larger
cities is significant of n reaction from
the moral lethargy that had settled
down upon the people. Combinations of
bad men bent upon plunder hel I control
of the municipal machinery, growing
bold and more hold in their dananee of
weak and Impotent public protests. They
wer made strong by their power to
make laws for their own government.
They controlled legislatures, and in
many cases dictated cnneewlohs and

The national calamity that brought

The obligation Is one that must not be
held lightly, for the public mind Is by

The American theatergoing public is
actually holding out some Inducements
for American actors to go to the trouble
of "making up " Heretofore the foreign
actor who had anything of a name in
his own country had only m buy a ticket
to this country to be assured of a flat
tering reception on his arrival and a
well filled strongbox on his departure.
American actors have been thrown Into
tho background, while foreign stars
were given the boun.uots-and the shek
els of silver and of gold nnd of green
backs. Not thRt none of these foielgn
actors deserved the reception they got,
but It was discouraging for an American
star to pla to half the business of a
foreign actor, when the reason for the
disparity between the two was the fact
that one was from across the sea and
the other was an American.
But now the astonishing statement la
made that duilng the past year the
leading domestic actors have played to
receipts which were about 25 per cent
greater than the distinguished foreign
stars had the pleasure of counting.
There Is a great deal of encouragement
In this fact, If it continues to be trii of
the future of the American stage. The
home product is ns good us that which
comes from abroad, every time, in most
things, and1 it Is true in this respect.
The mos.t encouraging feature of the
case is the fact that the actors whose
receipts have been so much latger were
exponents of the lgltlmato drama.
There Is some reason to hope that the
public taste is being improved and that
the time is coming when even native
horseplay will not draw the largest
Another fact in this connection Is that

There Is an nwful lot of rubbish be
ing wrlttcti un.l printed Just noiv about
the New Woman. As a matter of fact,
the ' n. w Woman" who Is being paraded
befi.re the wot Id, and who Is alleged to
threaten masculine supremacy In every
department of life, has been evolved
from the Inner consciousness of her cre
ator.". There Is no such woman. There
are a number of women, possibly an In
creasing number, who eeiclse the
American right of wearing such styles
of clothes ns they see lit, and who may
perhaps exercise poor taste In so doing.
There Is an undoubtedly Increasing
numbr of women who nro earning their
own living and selrltig the opportunities
which open up before them with each
passing year. The women of America
are awakening more nnd more to the
dignity of womanhood, the Importance
of the responsibilities that rest ttpoti
theln. the sense of their eiiuility with
their so-called lord and mnster. The
American woman Is busily preparing
herelf for the destiny that nwalts her
when the world has learned a little
more sense. .She Is now several decades
ahead of her plsters Itt other countries
of the world. If Ilenrlk Ibsen had been
well acquainted with the eituatlon ho
Woutd never have expected tho Ameri

to be aroused to the Injustice of being
treated as If they were absolutely Irre
sponsible: dentures With -the number
of self-supporting women growing con
stantly In this coihtry, with women as
serting their Independence almost ob
trusively In departments heretofore re
garded as dedicated to men nlone, Mr.
Ibsen's sermon Is somewhat out of place.
The American woman Is, ns has been
said, preparing herself for tho destiny
of the coming century. But there Is no
such creature as 11 "New Woman" in
the accepted sense of tho word, and
there Is no need for her. American
womanhood Is not endangered by this
advance of position on tho part of
woman. She Is getting more sense, that
Is all She Is not growing less lovable,
less womanly, less w 01 thy to become
the wife of the young American man
If she is rapidly freeing herself from
the necessity of having to mairy to get
a home, that Is not an indication that
she Is less lit to occupy a home when
she finds someone who possesses for her
oth-r attractions than tho ability to
provide the home for her. The joung
men of America have no reaQon to light
the advancing cause of the real new
woman. He would belter bend all his
superlluotis energies toward trying to
keep up with the procession. There is a
new woman, but she is the right kind of

nsd Nrt Tumidly at
Topeka. April 6. (Fpeclnt.) The Chase
Investigation opened to-dny with A. M.
Brown, former superintendent of the coil
mine at the penltentlan. on the stand. He
testified that parts of tho mine were con
tinually In 11 dangerous condition and that
no constantly kept the warden Informed of
the dangers the convicts who worked un
der ground were exposed to. The wnrden
refused to let him make the necessary re
pairs. As a mining expert, be said he
on-IJered the warden guilty of criminal
The next witness wns Willis Prost, an ex.
convict from Topeka, who testified as to
the food supplied the convicts. Under tho
vvnrdeiishlp of George Case, ho said, tho
food had been sufficient nnd of good qital
lt, while shortly after Warden Chase took
charge It commenced to run down In both
of these respects. Under Chase the diet
was never changed from day to dnv. In
giving the supper bill ot fare the witness
said they had bread and molasses, nnd
one of the committeemen asked what kind
of molasses was furnished.
"The were ver poor; so thin thev
wouldn't stick on a knife," replied the ex
convict. "How wns the fresh beef?" asked one
of the lawers
"It wns Inclined to be sort of rotten,"
was the reply.
"Was it ulwas rotten?" queried the lavv
or. "It wns Inclined to be considerably oft
en was the response.
"Did you often go away from the tabic
htingi ' '
"I didn't usunlly appear to get enough
to eat," responded the Indefinite, witness
and then he proceeded to testify that he
had never seen Warden Chase mistreat
anv of the convicts.
The next witness placed upon the stand
was Wiley W. Cook, assistant state nudlt
ot, who testified to a stack of vouchers as
containing the monthly p-iy rolls of the
penitential-. These pay roll were Intro
durid to prove several thing". One was
that Warden Chase carried his entire fam
ily upon the pa rolls. His son John was
mine engineer, his son Seth wns messen
ger and his daughter Jennie wns carried
as a keeper The duties of a keeper arc
to promenade the walls of the penitentiary
with a double-barreled shotgun, which
would seem to be rather nn unusual cm
p!oinent for a young woman
Another point these pay rolls displayed
wns that certain men were carried on the
rolls In positions which they never occu
pied As an Instance. John Gieavcr diew
pa for May and June as a mine ofllccr,
when !t was lu pioof that he never enter
ed the mine once during thoae slxtv das
It was also discovered bj these roils that
certain olllcers appeared on the rolls ns oc
ctiplng higher salaried positions than they
But the main purpose ot Introducing
tliese state documents was to show that
the warden had committed perjury every
month when he swore that all of the nen-
ple on the pay roll performed the duties
of the otllces set oppoMte their names
The final witness of the day was Judge
J r McDonald of Port Scott, who told in
detail about the assault committed upon
him by Warden Chase when he nppeared
at the penitentiary as attorney for the
prosecution In the Investigation started In
July, and which the warden brought to a
udden cloe by terrorizing the witnesses.
The old gray haired man testified that he
was still suffering from that assault and
thnt his health was badly broken from the
beating Chase had given him The assault
came about In this manner The attorneys
had finished arguing a motion for continu
ance and were- awaiting the decision of
the committee upon It Without any pre
liminaries, Chae approached Judge Mc
Donald nnd said-
"McDonald ou are .1 old liar'
You nromlsed me not to have anvthlnir to
do with this Investigation"
To this tho Judge replied that he had
promised not to expose the penitentiary
scandal before the Populist convention, but
when he made that promise he had the sol
emn assurance of Governor Lewelllng that
the ponltentiarv shoul 1 be Investigated, a
pledge which the governor broke
"Vouie a old liar!" again shouted
To t'i(s the Judge responded- "If ou cnll
me a liar I shall have to tell you ou're
With this Chase sprang upon him, strik
ing him repeatedl with Ills list about the
face and head He managed to lire ik away
nnd seized 11 chair, when one of the wit
nesses ptesent shouted 'Tor God's sake,
don't trv to strike him, or he will shoot
The room was quiet as tho old man
Krnphlcallv described the assault. When he
had finished the brutality of Chase's con
duct was impressed upon cvciy listener
The defense did not cross-eximlne nnd
seemed relieved when the episode was
At S o'clock the committee adjourned to
take up the lnvestKntlon ngaln at 11
o'clock on Tuesday next at tho peniten
tiary. Tho board of penltentlarv directors met
nt Lansing yesterday, when Deputy Wnr

"sink or swim" letter he had written In
replv As he seemed to he anxious to do
his dutv the board decided not to remove
him at present.
Governor Morrill to-dav said that he
would take no steps loward appointing a

the funds collected by them In fines, but
that was always the Inst of it. Nothing
