Kansa City is not nlohe In tht af
Miction hrottirht upon it by . policy of
temporary expediency in piivina; its

put down ooti after the U",if tbe
War The people even then fW0te the
building of a large and pmnettrtJt city
hare It wn nckn.iwledjed (tint the
broken stone paving that Was" put 1own
on What Were rhett the principal streets
would not answer for permanent use,
but they were fold that It would make
a gMod fhtindatloh for some better kind
In course of time the cedar block enue
was indicted upon the town By a gang
of conspirators, who for a time eveled
in fat cohtraet, Tfte "foitridatWh," o
much talked about prevlauwy, was
found to be unavailable, and the proper
ty owners had to pay Tor Its removal.
The cedar block had their day, and
now the question of permanent paving
is on the board again. Wise eounel
suggests that no more makeshift pav
Ing Is wanted In the more populous parts
of the town
The city of Chicago ha been through
very much the same experience. The
cedar block nuisance was saddled upon
thl city by citing Chicago as an exnm
Ple. There are 70S miles of the blocks rot
ting on the street or that city to-day.
In the report of the Chicago board of
public work for the past year, which
ha just come to band, the necessity of
continuous, systematic and permanent
paving Is set forth at length. The
board condemn temporary expedients,
except In paving those streets where
heny till have recently been made.
A territory more than ten mile from
north to south Is marked out, within
whlcb the board recommends that none
but the best pHVtng material shall he
allowed. It believes that both cediH
blocks and macadam shall be rigidly
excluded, and the same recommenda
tion Is extended to other sections, espe
cially districts near the parks, and main
thoroughfares everywhere, It Is only by
systematic and continuous paving, with
duiabln material, that the city can be
relieved of the enormous expense of
maintenance and the annoyance atid
cost of repeated reconstruction.
This topoit Is of the ptreatest Interest
to KniiH.is City, and Is thoroughly In
line with the common sense policy which
the Journal urges upon our own people.

The preparations for the annual dis
play of the Priests of t'ullas promise an
occasion of fully as sreat intercut as
any prelous demonstration made for
the delectation of Kansas City's carnival
week visitors. The necessity of provid
ing something entirely new for each suc
ceeding parade of the Priests is a tax
upon those who have the selection of
subjects that Is no less vital to the suc
cess of the carnival than that of the
artists and artisans who are employed
for months in designing and building thp
lloats anil preparing the necessary par
aphernalia to accompany them un their
tour of the city.
The experlen.'e of the management of
the affair through the successive years
since the inauguration of the carnival
each year adds much to the jefferllve'-''
nesa of the results attained, and wo
are told that the coming parade will
eclipse all others In the illustrations of
the subjects selected for treatment. This
is as It should be, for It Is altogether
likely that the city will be filled with
the greatest throng of visitors beond
any experience of the past.
The summer season huH brought more
pleasure seekeis from the vast and
prosperous terrltor surrounding than
ever before. They have been so well
entertained that .the are sure to come
again, and especially when they are
offered such royal fare as they are sure
to find In carnival week.
The coBt of these annual displays Is
by no means Inconsiderable In amount,
even to the ready and liberal contribu
tors who always rake their poektts
when called upon to aid In good works.,
but It Is money well spent. It not onl"
brings multitudes to the city who would
otherwise go elsewhere for similar en
tertainment, but it keeps thousands at
liume in the same way,

Kansns City ha it In It power to make

before the people of the country Is not
to bo lost or even slighted.
It haa been decided that $5,000 of lite
RO.OOO determined upon shall be raised
by the people of this city and Inde
pendence. The wideawake people of
the latter enterprising town have de
termined to raise $1,000, and such pro

the rest without further ado, and then
to Immediately go about the business of
placing this money where It will do the
most good. . The mere raising of the
money Is the smallest imrtlon of the

there is no doubt It wilt be well done.

Woodfnfd, who nsltiHi Mrs. Waller and
chlldirn out of .Iililna.nr after her litis
bahd had been sent, need to Imprisonment
for twenty year for alleged Illegal com
munlontton with the Hovns, against whom
the French arc waging war.
Mr. Woodford wmt to Madagascar last
February on liiislne with the llova gov
ernment and whit there lent nld to the
Tamllv of the United Slates consul, lie
ha arrived here! upon his return and has
hart an Interview wllh a. representative of
the Associated Press.
Mr. Woodford states Ihat upon hl arri
val at Tnmatavn ho found Mr. Waller In
prison. According to .Mr. Woodford the
solo evidence ngalfist the ex-consul was
embodied In letteis to his wife from n
llova friend, wherein the occupation of
Madagascar by the French was dlsctl'Sed
and description given of alleged assaults
Mr. Woodford declares, however, that the
real cause for the French action against
Mr. Waller Is the fart that he had ob
tained valuable concessions from the Ho
vns and that the e-ro!isul had received
his ceeqtlntm from the llova government,
thouirh opiiOsed bv the French, who had
the right to determine who shall be the
consul nt Tamatavp. On Mnv IS last, a s
Mr. Woodford, evConsu! Waller was hur
riedly tried and sentenced.
"At the time 1 was in Madagascar." said
.Mr. Woodford, "IMvvard T. Wetter, of
tleorgia, was In charge of the United
States consulate at Tnniatave. and I was
his guest for a month. I was nnturiillv
Interested In affairs or the consulate, and
saw all the correspondence of the I'nlted
States government with teferen.-e to the
Waller case. The Amerlenns were also
tniii h Inteie'sted and we thoroughly dis
cussed the nintter, but there was no Vtner
ienn Biinbo.it near and no protection of
ntiv kind Nothing romalned for the Ainet
leaiis to do hut submit to the action of the
French and report the occurrences to
Washington, which was done.
"As to the tepott, however. If my Infor
mation Is correct, there will be eilou
trouble, as 1 understand the report was
not received nt Washington I then went
direet to Antananarivo and found Mrs
Waller and her four children In a state of
destitution, and living on tho charity of
Hov.t friend". I assisted them, and when t
was leaving took the fnmllv with mc to the
coast and got aboard the steamer for Mau
ritius, where we Ian led almost penniless.
The heavy additional expense of rescuing
the Waller family was unexpected to me.
I could not. however, do otherwise Theie
wcte grown up girl- In the family and I
knew the fate that would be In store for
them when the From h .should oceupv the
capital, on the jonrne.v south to Vattomnn
dry. which Is sevens miles south ot Tnm
atave "I did not land at Tnnntave, ns Mr. Wet
ter had warned me that the Fiench were
seeking me and would shoot me if thev
could catch me, owlner to my visit to the
capital, whete thev knew I had been In
communication with the llova government

who will come to Pirls."
Mr. Woodford add- to the above that the
French in M.idagasi it are mere lllllmstcr
ers and are commlt'ing high h.indtd out
rages. All malls, I. .th fiom and to the
Island, are Inspeete I by French olHciaK

of the city to Influence out-of-town retail
dealers (0 buy their goods In Knnns fits .

general revival of business. The market
Is Just nt present full of representatives
of retail establishments from points In
Texas, Arkansas and Hotiihorn Missouri,
v ho are buying more liberally and wllh
belter Judgment thnii Ihey have heretofore
shown for some ents. While they
demand rock-bottom prices, they nre some
what lavish In their expenditures when
they find what pleases them.
Chief among the reasons assigned by the
wholesale merchants of Kansas City for
so great an Inlliix cf trade, are the cheap
freight rales from Kansas City lo all
points south. The Santa Fe. Rock Island
nnd Missouri, Kansas ,V: Texas railroads
have been the pioneer movets In giving
Kansas City merchants the benefit of these
reduced rates. Their vast business In
creased tenfold within the post scar, will
demonstrate how well It Is appreciated
Another fne tor which hns atlruited the at
tention cf many retail dealers, who have
lately shown n disposition to come to Kan

III the way nf larger and better assorted
stocks furnished by the merchnnts of this
city. ihe wholesale dealers of Kansns
City have awakened to the fact that In
order to secure the trade thev must have
the prices and the goods, nnd secmlnitly
with one accord they have purchased their
fall and winter stocks with those ends
The revival of trade hn compelled the
wholesale hou-es of Kansas City to place
many new traveling men on the road and
with n single exception the already large
corps in Texas nnd Arkansas have been In
creased. Some of the houses hnve doubled
their forces, while others have added from
one to two new men each. Tho result
has been at once apparent.

the Idea of going further to look for bar

McWilli-iins tore himself away from nn

remnrk that If business continued like it

would show- an Increase of f,0 per cent over
