Tollce Commissioners McCambrldge and
Jenkins, Police Judge Manning and a num
ber o their constituents are ' in Topeka
lobbying against the bill to abolish the
Metropolitan police system. Since the bill
passed the house there has been no end
of Populist manipulations and the local
plo eaters are afraid that they will' yet
be compelled to perform manual labor in
order to keep tho wolf from the door.
"When tho bill was first introduced it
caused no alarm among the legion of Dem
ocrats and Populists who sought Jobs on
the police department. They figured the
leaders would not allow any bill to pass
which would Interfere with them getting
employment. As Boon as,lt became known
that tho house had passed the bill the po
lice board and its appointees got together
to defeat the measure if possible when it
should como up In the senate. Word came
from Topeka Thursday night that it would
require a heavy pressure on the senate tfai
prevent the passage of the bill. A number
of the local Populists and Democrats went
up to Topeka that night and yesterday
morning a demand was made for re-enforcements.

that they are moro reliable, more easily

more Industrious. less liable to strike and

reaions for their opinion, given by those
who did not believe that there was any
tendency for the employment of women to
Increase their industries, were that very
often women who were better adapted and
cheaper were unreliable; that their physi

Washington, Feb. 32. Tho statue ot
Abraham Lincoln In the old hall ot repre
sentatives was draped to-day in the Amer
ican llag and wreithed with flowers in
honor of the SSth anniversary ot his birth,
but the house did not suspend business.
On tho contrary, it celebrated the anni
versary by discussing the necessities of
the postal service and passing tho post
office appropriation bill. The perennial
fight was made to striko out the appro
priation of $190,000 for special mail facili
ties from Boston to New Orleans, but it
was defeated 10 to 107 although that por
tion of the appropriation providing spe
cial facilities for Boston to New York was
stricken out after it had been shown
lhat this part of the appropriation had
not been expended for several years.
Tho bill as passed carries $93,433,711.

before tho house appropriation committee
to-day and asked that provision bo made
looking to an additional expenditure of
$73,000 for the construction of buildings for
the use of the cavalry at Fort Riley. This
amount was appropriated last year. The
committee was not disposed, however, to
favor the suggestion. Mr. Calderhead came
away with tho impression that the appro

on the depicted exchequer of the nation to
spend money in Kansas, nfter the Popu
list tidal wave of Inst November.

It Is Believed That Governor Ste'phens
Will Postpone the Execu

Jefferson City, Mo., Feb. 32. (Special.)
Messrs. Johnson and Noland, attorneys for
Arthur Duestrow, the St. Louis wife and
child murderer, had a conference this aft
ernoon with Governor Stephens; in regard
to their client's application for a respite
for thirty days to enablo them to take his
case before tho United States supreme
court. Later they received a note from tho
governor, in which he said that he was not
prepared to pass upon, the application and
would not do so until he had given the
question of probable insanity and other
questions involved in tho case a thorough
examination. The opinion of those who
intimate with the governor is that he
grant the respite.

Miss Bernico Setle, the 20-year-old daugh

With a better understanding' of tha
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. Tliere is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, whicli the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
every whera esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that itis the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without- debilitating tho
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that yon have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and held by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system "is regular, lasatives or
other"remedics are then not'needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
