The Standard Oil Company is rapidly

The punishment visited upon Ilarrity

The New York World seems to be tur

Quite so. What the Republican leaders

Out of 41,000 newspapers and periodi?

nearly one-half, or 10,855. Thoso nearest

land. 4,000. Nearly 3,000,00*0,000 copies
of newspapers and other periodicals are
issued In the United States every year.
The State of New York alone prints more
papers than all the world lying south of
the cquUor. Graphic Mllustrantions of
the miles and miles of books girdling the
earth, the mountains of magazines and
papers towering high before us, and the
rivers of ink and tons of type used,would
add little to our conception .of the educa?
tional value of books and periodical press

the people so well supplied with books and
periodicals as the United States.
The Journal is an independent newspa?
per, intensely devoted to its mission as
an Impartial daily historian of the times.
Its opinions are not the property of any
party or faction. It does not trim Its

This is journalism of the true standard.
The newspaper that has for its aim the
good of its country cannot be the slave of
any party organization. Democracy in
its higher and purer sense has no more
earnest and intelligent exponent than the
New York Journal. li is a paper that
believes in the rul?* of the people. It is
as fearless In denunciation of 'wrongs as
it is vigorous in its attack on Republican
misdeeds. Such journalism compels
our respect and does a noble work is ele?
vating our citizenship.
There is no reason why this country
should not raise all sugar it consumes.
It has expended billions of dollars for
foreign sugar which .should have been
produced at home. Each year from ??
$100,000,000 to .$200,000a,000 Is spent for j
foreign sugar. The American wheat
shipped abroad this year will not pay for
the sui'ar we have to export. Our wheat
exports oever offset *our 'sugar Imports.
We can raise sugar as well as wheat.
There are hundreds of m'llioii- of acres
in ttiis country well adapted to the pro?
duction of 'sugar beets. Most of the
world's sugar supply is produced from
sugar beets, licet sogar can be produced
more profitably than wheat. In parts of
the West the sugar beet Industry is grow?
ing, but the industry "Is yet in its in?
fancy j It ought to be one of our greatest
industries. Thero*is no excuse for send?
ing from $100.000,0(0 to $200,000,000
abroad every year for sugar that can be
produced at home.
The Times is not in a position to state
whether the legislative ticket named by
the Democrats at tin- Salem convention
will have otganized opposition. It i?,
however, conceded that there will Le op?
position candidates in the field. This is
a free country and by complying with a
very simple enactment of the law any as?
pirant for legislative honors may become
a candidate. Some of the Republican
leaders favor putting out a straight party
ticket, while others favor throwing the
strength of the party to independent can?
didates who miiy offer, provided they de?
clare for honest election methods,be they
Democrats, Populists or Republicans.
If the Republicans put out a party tlcKet
and make the light on party lines the Sa
lent ticket will doubtless carry olT the
honors, as the district can on a full vote
poll a Democratic majority of about six
hundred. Insuch it light the Republican
majority ol Roanoke county.would prob?
ably be wiped out by the Democratic ma?
jority in Cratg county, and Roanoke city
would become the real battle ground,
with hardly a doubt as "o the result D
the Republicans fail to put [out a party
ticket and an independent non-partisan
ticket composed of good men enter- the
field, the result may he very different It
is conceded by many Democrats who took
an active interest in the primary cam?

BRYAN IN A WRECK,
Twelve or Fifteen People Killed on
the Sante Fe Road.
Knusas City, Mo , Sept. !>.?A special
to the Times from Kmporia, Kuh., says:
One of the worst wrecks In tho history
of the Santa Fe railroad occurred three
miles east of here at a tout 7:30 o'clock: last
night. Twelve or fifteen persons were
Killed, and as many more badly hurt.
The fast mail going east, and the Mex?
ico and California express was being
pulled by two locomot ives.und when they j
struck the engine drawing the fast mail,
the three engines exploded and tore a
hole in the ?round s.. deep that the smok
Ing car of the west bound train ran on
top of the three engines and two mail
cars and balanced there, without turning
over. The passengers in tho smoking
car escaped through the windows. The
fiont end of this cur was enveloped in a
volume of stilling smoke ami steam,
belching up I rein the wreck below and
the rear dour was jammed tight in tho
Wreck ol the car behind.
The wreck caught lire troni the en?
gines. The cars In the hole and the
smoker burned to ashes in a short time.
1 u climbing out of the smoking car sev?
eral men fell tbrtugh the rifts into the
wreck below, and it is impossible to tell
whether they escancd or were burned to
The west bound train carried seven or
eight coaches, and its passengers include
many excursionists, who had been to
hear Hon. \V. J. Hryan speak at the
county fair at Burliugame. Mr. Hryan
himself was on the train, but was riding
In the rear PuUnian, some 400 feet from
the cars which were wtecked. He states
that nothing but a heavy jolt was expe?
rienced by the passengers in his coach.
Mr. Hryan was one of the noblest men
in the crowd of rescuers, lie helped to
carry out the dead and wcuudfd, and
gave the greatest attention to their care.
One poor fellow, who was badly maimed,
called to Mr. Hryan and said:
"1 went to hear you to-day. lam now
dying and want to shake'.your hand and
say God bless you. If you possibly can,
Mr. Hryan, get me a drink of water."
Mr. Hryan went into the fast mail car,
one end of which was burning, and came
out with the water, which he i/ave to the
suBerlng passenger. 'lie brought out
cushions for others of the injurer, and
was everywhere present to administer to
the wants of the suffering.
It is feared that nearly all of the seven
mail iderks perished in the disaster, but
so far only eight bodies have.been taken
from the wreck.
Those dead are Jim Brennan, engineer,
Topekn; Nat Holster, fireman. Topeka; .1.
F. Sonders, Kansas City, express nies
Eenger, body almost, consumed by lire:
R. A. Borau, Kmporia [postal [clerk; W.
Gonr.ales, fireman, westbound train: un?

Among the seriously injured are Claud
Holiday, Lawrence, Kansas, express mes?
senger, both legs broken, will 'die; "John
Dagan, Topeka, face smashed; .f. .1. But?
ler, county attorney. Chase ?punty, hip
broken, may die: William F. Jones, Kan?

Sieber, Kansas City, hip crushed; "C. A.
Vanvel, hrakeman, Kansas City, badly
bruised, William Patrick, Kansas City,
leu and arm broken; C. I). Arams, City of
Mexico, painfully bruised; " Mike Swee?
ney, Gainesville, Texas, back hurt.
Ben Waters, St. Joseph,Mo., a fireman
on the westbound train, is missing.
The engineer of the westbound train
had received orders to meet the fast mail
at Kmporia and was making up los?
time. These two [are the fastest trains
on the Santa Fe "system, and the west?
bound train must have been running ata
speed of i:t least forty miles an hour.. The
westbound express was going around a
slight curve, and met the fast mail,
probably within two hundred leer.
Of the seven or eight cars making up
the Mexico and California express, only
the mail, bauuagi and express ami -look?
ing cars were destroyed. The coach fol?
lowing the smoker was badly splintered.
There were not more than a do/.en pas
sengers on the fast mail, all in one
coach. While none ol them was seri?
ously injured, theii shaking up was ter?
rible. Rvery seat in the coach was torn
from the lloor. and many floor planks
came up with the seats. One man, John
Sweeney, was thrown over three seats
and through a window.
It is staled that the wreck was caused
by a miscarriage of ordors[frum the train?
master. At Kmporia, the eastbound fast
mail train received orders to pass the
California express at^Land, [seven miles
east. Another order was sent to the Cal?
ifornia express to take the [siding there,
but this order was not delivered, ami the
west bound train passed by the siding,
the train men expec ting to pass the fast
mail at Kmporia.
