It Is only now and then that the lend
ing public finds anything In the general
news reports from Washington concern
ing the condition of the public treasury
that is not of a favorable character, un
less It Is when the regular monthly
statements arc Issued. One of these ofll
clal reports was Issued just n week ago,
and particular pains were taken to direct
attention to the fact that for the prev
ious month the receipts hnd been u little
more than the expenditures. Not much,
to be sure, but considering the fact that
it was the first outcome of the kind in
something over two years it was deemed
worthy of wide comment and the public
received It with a Considerable degree of
If the business of the treasury had not
been doctored up fur the occasion it
would have been regarded as nn indica
tion of n most happy state of affair
that the business of tho government had
onco more been put on a self-sustaining
basis, but the fact Is that nobody was
deceived by the figures given. Here we
nre but a short week along Jn another
month and the deficiency Is already
greater than the surplus of all last
month, over wlilcih tin- Democratic
papers orowt d so lustily. And unless Jlr.
Carlisle; can devlae sorae plan by which
deferred payments can be put off still
longer, there is every prospect thnt the
end of ihc- month will show a shortage
of something like seven millions.
Carlisle hinmelf U aaid to be getting
nervous again and there Is talk
that he la likely to suggest to con
gress that a tux of a dollar a barrel
be put upon beer in. order to onrry tho
treasury through nnother year. This, he
calculate.-., would add about $32,000,000 to

The state unti-suffrage committee of
New York hiw Issueel an appeal to the
voter of that state to securo the nomi
nation and election to the legislature of
men Known to bo opposed to eiiml suf
frage. More remarkable than this action
ttaelf, are the grounds un which it is
based. The committee, composed of
women opposed to the participation ut
their sex lu the affairs of government,
asserts that tile ballot is nn unwelcoiue
and unsuitable burden.
There Is a wldo diversity of opinion us
to tho advlnabitlty, or the feasibility, of
tho elimination of the word "male" in
inscribing tho qtialllU-atlous r.ir votora
In this country. Jlin there inn be no
room for difference of opinion on this
proposition: If the ballot Is a right, then
women should be Invested with that
right; if not, then not. There is no force
In the waiving of a right by those who
do not desire It. Why should n single,
woman whr wants It be denied the
ballot, If t Is a right, on account of the
protest of those who fchlik what they
themseivea call a responsibility? Very
wisely and, in the absence of any argu
ment, neccssatlly, tho committee referred
to declaies thut "it is thought unwise
and unnecessary to argue" such a propo
Mtlou. If the ballot is u light, it should be ac-
curdod. If only ono woman In nil the laud
wants it or if none does. If It Is not a
right, then it should not be granted, if
every woman in all the land clamors for
it as pretty nearly all of them aro
doing. Hut the apponl for the refusal of
a right, assuming that It Is such, on thu
ground that some do not want It. and lu
View of the fuct that hundreds of thou
sands do, Is a queer argument.

tory of this country lin a more notable
victim met a more trngleal fate, ns the
result of u purely iMlltlcill net. A blight
fell upon him and hi fortunes, Upon nil
that wag dear to him, the moment he
transferred to the opposite lde of the
nennto chamber the allegiance he had
theretoroie acknowledged to the Demo
cratic party. When the Immense power
und Importance which thnt net gave him
(for he held the balance of power be
tween the two parties nnd when he sided
with the Itcpubllciins he gave them the
contiol of the senate) Is contrasted with
the present, the spectacle becomes pro
foundly pathetic. The hero of one of tho
mont sensational episodes In American
politic, he became Its victim and from n
jiosltlon of unlimited power he became a.
ineie lobbyist, with only tho lemnnnts of
his former Influence; a man of great
wealth, he became a dopr of odd Jobs to
ike out an existence; a mnn of social
prominence, he became n pnrlnh, piti
lessly ostracised, every door closed
against him. Tlmo has not served to
soften the bitterness or the remors"
lessncs.t of the antagonism his action
engendered. Its fatal consequence have
followed him to his deathbed. I'erlmps,
as the years go by, he will be viewed dif
ferently. Then admiration and not, as
now, pity will predominate In the minds
of those who Judge him.
A UIMIII.V .ioki:.
There Is a declaration going the rounds
of tho London press. It Is to thu effect
that the third term talk over here Is evi
dence that the American people are turn
ing toward the one-man Idea and that
when they llnd a good thing they keep
It. Taking Into consideration the fact
that the London press means Mr. Clove
land, nothing quite so richly humorous
has been sent over hero for a long tlm.
The trouble with our esteemed London
contemporaries is that thpy are about
two decades behind the times. It this
Idea had been sprung when third term
talk was Indulged In regarding V. S.
Clrant. or If Jlr. Lincoln had been spared
and there hnd been a popular .sentiment
in favor of n third term for him, the
declaration of the London press would at
least have had a basis of reasonableness.
Its absolute absurdity would not hav
been so apparent, however fur U might
have fallen short of being a profound ob
servation on the trend of the American
mind. In the llrst place, there Is no seri
ous talk of a third term for Mr. Clove
land; and In the second, if there were,
there is not the slightest reason for fear
ing that it would ever rise to a
popular clamor. Observations made In
London arc apt to be foggy, but this is
about tho muggiest that has yet come
to light. The Idea that tho American
people are turning to Mr. Cleveland as
ten Moses is ridiculous, don't you know.

trated lint hlijht that their biiccojs docs not
lie lu fending resolutions lo the Uppr
house of the common council, Thnt body
feiund a way to smother that milch talked
of ordinance to appropriate !12,wOl to build
nn entltely new workhouse. It was not a
hard matter nnd wn done nefore the
father of the workhouse measure really te
nllned whnt was colnir on.
When the paternal Sonser of this bill
thought that It was coming before the
house he rose with an ularmlng amount of
dignity and pietented the resolutions from
the societies already referred to. In wlurh
It was slated that the old workhouse whs
Inadequate nnd unsanitary atiJ should be
replaced by it new one on the jiryjcnt site.
Onfotttinalely for this bltist-rlng mem
ber he did not notice that I'resileit Tltr
nan hnd relinquished the chair to AlJor
mmi Shlnnlck and wni Mated among the
members on the Moor, To the astonish
ment of tho father of the workhniie ordi
nance, instead of his bill being read, fls ho
expected, tho clerk sprung an tntlrely new
im-nsure uiKn the hoiine. It was n bill
offered by President Tlernun to transfer
30,G"0 from the expense fund nnd place It
to the ciedlt of the water drpirtmen..
Now tho p.ilnt that suddenly dawned upon
all thoo present was thnt the effect of tho
T'etnan ordinunce would tie to entlrjly uso
up all of the available W,l"l In tho ex
iwnsn fund und lenva not a penny fer
workhotim, parks, tire department, or In
fact any of the many things for whloh
several inemlicr have thought they re
quired venous amounts.
Of course there wns a look of consterna
tion a well as surprise uion tho face of
the new workhcuso advocate. He saw In
a moment thnt he was In a trap. In sup
part of hi! ordinance President Tiornan
said that the water departmeit wni actu

Although he of workhouse ordinance celeb
rity tried to head off the coming disaster to
his pet scheme, It was of no us,", tes the
Tlernnn ordinance passed with but two
votes in the negative, nnd, as this loft no
money in the expense fund of course the
workhouse measure was as dead as though
It had been cremated.
The pav for the water works attorneys
was forever settled, ns the upper states
men also passed the ordinance appropriat
ing W2.500 for this put pose. There was a

MR, T0DDJJET RIGHT,
A forrertlon Itrcnrtltnc nn Item Which
Appeared In the New Column of
To Hie IMltor of the Journal.
In your Issue of to-dny (October 7), you
make nn acknowledgment of your error of
September Et, wherein you chnrge the
I'opullst administration and myself, ns
superintendent of one state Institution,
In particular, with robbing the blind. For
this retraction of your false charges, even
nt this late hour, you have my personal
Hut doc not the concluding paragraph
of your acknowledgment show n decided
menial reaction from It moral strain 7
Could you not drop the mntter, man fash
ion, without covert Insinuation of fur
ther guilt? Is It not posslblo for a great
Journal, occupying the position or honor
W'htch vnu hnee Inntr enineed. to lint ntilv
rise to, but remain In a portion of fair
ness long enough to fully and unequivocal
ly acknowledge a mistake? es, even when
that mltake concerns a I'opullst.
Pardon me for the plainness of speech
that 1 must use, but it is very obvious thnt
party malice, rutin, r limit the rmeii henrt-
nine or a confelon Is still the spirit of
your acknowledgment, ns seen In its con
cluding paragraph. Volt saj : "Mr. Chulll
nor will to tu tilftthe to-morrow to trace
up a certain desk which was mnde there,
but which was sent to the blind asylum,
and which has since disappeared. If he
lltid it to.be state property, he has In
structions from Governor Morrill lo bring
etlminnl action against tho man who tar
ried It off."
Yon avoid using my name, or saying that
I carried olT this "certain desk," and yet
you Imply as much, for the public knows
thnt I had charge of the state property
nt this Institution up to the time
I left it, and that I wns re
sponsible for its preseratlon. Now,
do you not know thnt what you say of
Mr, Chnlllnor In reference to going to Ola
the Is extremely absurd; that he I not a
man quite so dellclent In cerebral grey
matter ns to think it necessary to go to
the place where things aro made to llnd
put what property belongs to the stnto
institutions? And do vou not know that
in printing such a statement your paper
cgnresse to a grent want of knowledge
of the financial modiu opernndl or nil the
state institutions of Kansas? And do vou
not also know thnt you thereby pface
Governor Morrill In a isisltlon of greater
malicious puerility than even vox popull
credits him with maintaining? Allow me
to remind you that the state property lu
our institutions Is usually acquired bv pur
ennse and that, If purchased. It can be paid
for In but one way by checks on the
slate treasury, based on accredited vouch
ers. Ill the absence nf Milch vnnchceu
there can be no check issued, nnd no prop
erty by purchase, received by the state,
consequently, nil that .Mr. Chnlllnor, ns n
competent state accountnnt, would need
to do in such a case would be to go
through the vouchers of the Institution
which would tnke him nbout ten minutes
to llnd out whether a certuln piece of prop
erty belonged to the superintendent or the
stnto. Vt hy, then, does your Journnl use
Inijmiations, when the truth Is so acces
sible? The real facts in the case arc these: I
engaged the boys of the institution for the
deaf to make for tny personal use a stand
ing desk, nnd a record tile, nnd did It for
two reasons. First, I did not wish to ask
ine state eo pay lor n imng that I was
oruerinK ior my personal convenience; sec
ondly, because- I Intended some time to
have u llle made for my accumulating lit
erary nnd scientific notes, and took this
tlmo for having It made, in order to give
the deaf boys Industrial encouragement.
That Is the extent of my criminality. The
records of Olathe will probable- show a
shipment of such a desk to the institution
for the blind, rather than to me as un
Individual: for that la the common way or
shipping goods among state superintend
ents, on account of Its greater dlrec:nes
In delivery. Also, It may be possible that
me muiicv rei-Kiveu ior ine desk may nave
been credited on the books at Olathe to
the Institution, Instead of to me as an in
dividual; but all this nmounts to nothing.
The title to property Is the point In ques
tionand th!" is only acquired In one way,
as I have shown, in a state Institution
by payment for it, through chocks, and bv
means of accredited vouchers never by
consulting the records of nnother institu
tion. This vour tinner onirht r. linn,., if
It assumes the portion of a public censor
of the state olllelnls of Kansas. In Justice
to mvself, I ask you to publish this iettcu
in full In your next issue.

A legislative body, not matter what Its

stands adjourned. This was not true of the
Westport council lost night. Some of the
nldertnen are not quite certain whether
they nre to aemble this evening or two

clo.se wh-n Alderman Drake lifted up his
voice and said, "Move We adjourn to lo-
niuiion iic-m. -.no, noi to-morrow night.
Move, we adjourn for two weeles, your lion
or." shouted Alderman llama. Aldermen
McMillan and Tobin seconded the latter
motion voclfeiously that the gen
tleman who se-onded Alderman Drake'
motion could not be heard. "To-morrow
night," roared Alderman Drake again, nnd
started lor the door, hat in hand. "oh.
hold on." cried Alderman McMillan tor
Mayor Slavens showed signs of wishing lo
decamp. "I call for the vote on my mo
tion." Hy this time every alderman In the
loom was standing behind his desk and
calling "Question." The mayor looked ut
Alderman McMillan and then at Alderman
Drake. Then he put the question.
Those" who voted aye said so in an or
dinary tone of voice. Those who voted no
shouted as if they were spectators at a
football game. The mayor clapped hi hat
on his head und walked to the door. There
was an angry roar from Aldermen McMil
lan and llnnta, which made him halt In
the middle of the room. "Call for the ayes
and nays," said they, "We've already ad
journed," said his honor. Aldermen Drake,
lialcoin and Meriwether took occasion to
.scape from the room and the mayor fol
Aldi rmiiii McMillan was mad. "Mr.
Clerk," he said to City Clerk Love, who
was Marking hi.t books. "Vou'ro the pre
siding oillcer. Call the ayes and nays."
This was done and Just four aldermen un
swered to their nuinejf. "No quorum,"
laughed city Clnk Lovo and everybody
made for the door In haste.
Mayor Slavens devoted tho first few min
utes of the meeting to thu decapitation of
City Attorney Frank T. llobertson. As
soon nn the minutes had been lead, his
honor nominated Henry 11. Abereromby
for the place,
Un was confirmed by a vote of 5 to 3,

teen months, and had done much of the
woik connected with the Westport sewer
system, which Is still in process of con

were not compatible, hence his removal.
The mayor returned the ordinance re

so much comment, It being claimed that

which It appears that tho Juilgo referred tne
case to Kdwarel Hobby, whom lie ap
pointed master In chancery for that pur
pose, and announced that he would grunt
no relief to either party except upon the
advice and recommendation of said master
according to the pctillon.Tho master stated
he could not properly ndvlse the Judge of

Upon their refusal to pay the master, the
petitioners were adjudged in contempt, and
were remanded to tho custody of the mar

no Jurisdiction in said cause, for It had
never been referred to him, or even
reached thnt stage where It could be law
