Ically, we mean, one of the mot
aliii'lve articles that has ftppettml In

Wholesale dentinclntlon of the city coun
cil on the subject of pnrks.
Por low scurrility nnd inderertey the
article t hard io beat. 1'of pure and
utiidutteratod foolishness it cannot lie
equaled. The council haa lahen no ae
thin on the subject mutter n a liody,
but some members have thought It their
duf to ituestiftnte certain recommenda
tinns of the park board, and for this the
whole council has been subjected to
vituperation and bllllngsirate seldom

The cotiholl needs no defense on its

erone, cxrept th!S blinded by their
in e(rottm. sees that Instead of in
juring the city the council did a piece of
w.irk that will redound to its credit for
all time to come.
The Star, however, Is nothing if not
n-' ndncious, as well as malicious, and
i little thin like false statement never
ir.'erferes with its so-called argument.
-o far as the park system Is concerned,
the only enemy of that system to be
l'jund In Kansas City Is the Star, and
the article In question is full and SUffl-
lent evidence of It.

It Is the fashion for the newspapers
published within a. radius of a couple
of hundred miles of all large cities to
avail themselves of every opportunity
to vent their Jealousy and seek to dis
courage friendly relations between their
own communities and the metropolis.
The latter is regarded as a vampire
which fattens upon the sustenance of
the country merchant nnd every citizen
of the village vho turns his head to
ward the city Is branded as disloyal.
If ill-natured flinijs at the city could
accomplish the result evidently desired,
the relations between the metropolis
and the outlying communities would be
But the people do not look upon the
matter in that light. They do not feel
that they are disloyal to their own town
by coming on, an excursion or shopping
trip once In a season. The provincial
press means to stand up loyally and
earnestly for its constituency. Ilut it
should do so fairly. The truth of the
matter is, that the amount of money
contributed toward the prosperity of
Kansas City by any one of the towns
within a radius of 200 mtles is insig
nificant; the amount taken from the
merchants of any one town is a baga
telle. But when the towns are multi
plied the aggregate is Immense. Kan
sas City takes but a trifle from each
community; it takeB a great deal from
The true theory Is that the metropolis
and the neighboring town owe much
each to the other. They should work in
harmony; only the friendliest relations
should exist between them. Their In
terests are Independent. The metropolis
Is the market and the towns are the sell
t rs- The merchants of the city are not
the enemies of the merchants of the
t'.w ns. The provincial prebs would serve
the interests of Its constituency better
if it devoted the space taken up by
"phots at Kanas city" to telling the
truth, !'! h Is that the metropolis gives
more t' in it iver tiiki-s away. The

has so voted In the senate since the

The question of the Recorder as to
KeW York Is ft very pertinent one. We
have always believed that "above Har
lem brldget" the stnte of New York is
for silver. The fact that David D. Hill,
who lives at Elmlra. has always tried to
keep himself in the public eye as for
silver. Is first-class evidence that the
people of New York are for the "money
of the constitution." Recituse Hill knows
which side of the bread Is buttered.
The fact that the Recorder, itself an
open advocate of silver. Is the widest
read Republican newspaper In the East
ern states Is also a sign of great sig
nificance. fltNII Oil -MP.!!.
Sirs. Barnum has married again, and
being a woman of 50 years, Is supposed
to know her own mind and her own
business, and we have nothing to say
on that score. Rut she has n few friends

the public by such things as this In the
New York Herald: "It Is recognized
that Barnum was an old man when she
married him; that the alliance was In
no sense one of affection, nnd that she
gave him the best years of her young
If it was not "affection," what was
it? She got $1,000,000 by being his wife,

It speaks of auditorium, ble but not
beautiful, and of tad statues, nml conveys
to its readers the impreselon that the crltl

therfore they must be artistic. The ques

before he hinl rounded out the Hist pe

the arrival of a message. The governor
In due time accepted the s-nme nnd de

hour another message arrived nml it wen

fashion. The governor responded gtullly
to the pounding at Ihe door, which proved
to Ik? the bell boy again and nothing more,
Willi a message from n Kansas City friend.
The governor at titst. In a burst of rage,
Just equal to the task of arousing him,
announced in no uncertain tones that he
did not enre what It was, he wanted the
bell bov to let him alone. And, quite tic
customed to thl. the boy skipped careless
ly down the hull, but before he had gone
far the governor called him to come back.
True enough, another message came from
Knnas City, thus meeting the first ex
pectations of t governor. Just here
there was no further hitch in the proceed

derstand that to arouse him again with a
message, or especially one from Kansas
City, would be followed by making holes
thiough the door.
When the governor got out for business
