MR. BIRD FLYING TOO HIGH.
Attorney tleni-rnl D,iui Culls thu l.iilior

of Cl.rk Hire.
Topeka, K.is., Am? S (Special ) State
Jibar Commissioner W G. Jilid was called
down In piompt and lgoiou thapo by At
torney General Dawe-, jebtrda. When
the Iefiislaturo was In session last winter
nird went before tho committee on w.ijh
nnd means and asked that one of the two
rlerks allotted t his oltlqo bo done away
vlth and that tho t-alaiy paid for this
clerk bn added to tho contingent fund of
the tommlsajonei't. olllce.
Tho leglsUtuie bi anted Jlr. Illrd's re
(luedt, kuocktit out one of tho oleika nnd
added tho alar.v to his contingent fund.
Commissioner IJIrd, alneo the 1st of Jul),
hns Kept tho one cb rlc ullowtd by law, to
Kethcr with the cleik or (itenographir
whom the old law provided for und whose
jdace was abolished nt the commissioner's
own request, and on the 1st of this month
attempted to pay her out of the Incidental
fund provided for the oltlce. Auditor Cole
jefeired tho matter to tho nttomoy general,
who has decided that Mich payment is tn
tlrels Improper and that tho commissioner
Is entitled to but tho ono cleik.
Kpeaking of the m inner In which Mr.
Bird kept account of tha contingent fund
entrusted to him by the legislature, htuto
Accountant Challlnor, who recently m ido
an overhauling of the labor olilce, says that
tho only recoid of money spent which Illrd
produced was one of tho'-o nanow little
memorandum books, which ho carried
around In his 'vest .pocket.
There Is growing sentiment nil over
the state, voiced by the press, In favor of
abolishing the olllce of commissioner of
labor outright, If the otilco has served ono
useful puriso In the stato of Kansas, it
cannot oe named. Its solo mission appear
to have been to supply a fat Job for some
politician, who displayed his f-lendllness
tor labor and his capacity for tunning tho
department by spiking a. iwlltlcal caucus
somewhere. Its statistics aie woithless. Its
iniluence over labor trouble Is nil, and it
has been a source of never ceasing trouble
to Populist and ltepublicaii administrations
alike. The aepartment has no powers or
useful duties and the eiperience of tho last
threo administrations warrants the con
clusion that thero Isn't enough business
connected with It to keep the commissioner
out of devilment.
Senator Vllly Huchan, of Wjandotto
county, who introduced and fathered the
act ereatlng the labor offlce. Is being called
unon with no uncertain sound to net him
self elected to the legislature again for the
solo purposo of amputating this law,
Ottawa. Kas, Aug. 8 -(Special ) The
management of Ottawa university is well
pleased with the outlook. Never In Ha
history, thus early In the season, baa
thero been mi much Interest shown as at
present. Applications for scholarships ore
coming In dally 1n great numbers. The

tho Institutipn. und tho enrollment ivill

when suddenly there loomed up dlrectlv
under her bows a four misted vcjsol The

It was Impossible to alter the course of
the Prlneo Oscar. The Iron hull of the
latter strurk the unknown full amidships,
knocking her nlmost on her be-im ends
and crashing through tho woodwork un

Tho str.incer wont over almost on her

the Prince Oscar stood peering through the
diikness they saw the stranger pirtly
right herself, and then sho rapidly began
They listened In vain for some signs of
life, but not a cry for help nor a word
of command came from the stricken vessel
In less thin four minutes from tho time
she wis struck tho stranger keeled over
and plunged stern tlrst Into the depths be
low. Captain Henderson, of the Prince
C-car, who was below In bis beith, rushed
on deck just In time to discover thnt bis

Tho pumps weio manned, but in less

and the men were told to Jump nnd swim
for their lives Thev all went overborn d
and, with the exception of two unfortun

Captain Henderson, who was the list
man to leave the ship, went over In bis
nUht garments and swam fullj two miles
before ho was picked up. Both boats hov
eled about the sene of tho wreck until

Thcj weie successful in getting foui ot

There wou now seventeen men In the

'IViu.iiil oveninir of tho second day one
of the ciow dlscoveied .1 small cask nt llsh
oil stowed away hi the bout. This was
dealt out to tho sutv Ivors lu small doses
nud they used It to moisten their patched
lips and tongues.
Most of tho 1110,11 wero p-irtinlly linked,
hiving had no time to secure clothes
for thioe dajs and nights they Hotted
nnd Just as they weio about to nb union
hope they slghtid theshlp Dhwar, from
London bound to Melbourne. Thev suc
ceeded In nttnctlng tho attention of those
on bo trd and were soon on he r decks. Pour
dajs later they. In lat IvJS south long
.17 Jt west, were put aboard tho Capte,
bound for this poit. All of the survivals
still bear evidences of tho sufferings they
endured. Cnptaln Henderson was reticent,
pieferrlng not to give the full details of
the disaster until ho reported to tho Ilrlt
lsh consul, C'ipherton, which otllcial will bo
nsked to Institute a uavnl court of Inquiry
and hear the full defills of the disaster.
After sonio peisuasion, however. Cnptaln
Henderson said. "On tho night of Julyn
when tho collision occurred, I had Just
tinned In, leaving tho deck hi charge of
the chief olllcer. Tho wind wus southeast
and Huiially, and thero was considerable
sea Wo wero going along at possibly sl
and a half knots an hour, with even thing
net, Tho mate saw nothing of tho ap
proaching icssel until sho was almost on
toil of us, and ho isisltlvely asserts that
she was without sldo lights. She hid
every stitch of canvas set and was jump
ing through the water at a IHely rate
Consequently when the vessels r.unn to
gether tho trasli was ten Klo and tho dam.
ago was sulUeUnt to cause both to go to
thq bottom within, ten minutes' time. Not
u sound came from those on nonnl tho 1111.
known ship, and nt the expiration ot llvo
minutes tho tops of her masts wero seen
blnklng beneuth tho surfaco of tho water."
Captain Hender-on Is well advanced In
