JOHN BROWN'S GREEJD. Col. John M. Brown's desire for office seems to be beyond his control. The "put up" meeting at the court house last night was net the success anticipated, although the plan to endorse Col. Brown was carried out. In his speech Col. Brown said he had only last week decided to allow the use of hie name as a candidate for state auditor, but CcL Brown should remember that the voters of Shawnee county re member the efforts of the Republican central committee last fall to keep him in the party at that time. This man who now wants a place on the Republican state ticket, says in all his speeches that he considered his own interests1 before hia party, and in an in terview last fall, said: "John Brown never throws his vote away, and the colored people do not propose to throw their votes away. If my vote does not go to help keep the Repub lican party in power, it will go where it can do the most towards putting the Re publican party out of power. The time has come when the Republican party must do something for the colored man, if it expects to receive his continued support." Now that CoL Brown has formally an nounced his candidacy for state auditor, it would seem that he considered himself "the colored man" who should be cared for. In a card published at the time Cel. Brown attempted to defend his interview by saying: "I did not say anything, but what I had a right to say and what it was my duty to say. I am not a political slave or a political coward, and I am not afraid of the political bosses in my party." Now, if Col. Brown still adheres to his last fall's statement, he must mean that if he is not nominated for state auditor he will bolt the ticket. CoL Brown can not expect the Republicans of Kansas to nominate a man for a state office whose party integrity is no stronger than his and who can not even secure the endorse ment of a "put up" meeting in hia own county without a fight. CATCHING OX. "Equal suffrage," according to Kate Field, "has become fashionable in New York city. She says, "Susan B. Anthony can at last put down her traveling bag and take life comfortably. She has lived to see woman suffrage fashionable in her own state, and in the city of all cities most hopelessly given over to the world, the flesh and the devil, according to the verdict of reformers. What has brought about this extraordinary revolution, 1 do sot know. It may be due to the conver sion of a few social leaders who have opened their eyos to the fact that they pay taxes without representation; it may be that an epidemic of political thought has broken out in Gotham. Perhaps woman suffrage is a microbe, bound to run its course, throughout the length and breadth of the land. God speed it, and arouse American women to the ne cessity of saving their country from dem agogues and foreign anarchists. A New York woman writes to a friend in the west: "'You never saw anything like it. New York women are going mad over suffrage. They drive up to Sherry's and sign petitions, make regular house can vasses, and fairly take away men's breath by the way they go on. Some under stand what they are about; ethers follow leaders and sign their names because they want to be in fashion; between the two that petition of one million will be presented at the May convention, and if we don't get what we want there will be trouble. The following are a few of the names found on the petition for equal suffrage in New York: Rev. Arthur Brooks and wife. Dr. Robt Abbe and wife, Margaret I Chanler, Dr. Wra. Draper and wife, Walter Damrosch, Chaa. II. Eaton, D, D., Dr. Mary Putnam Jacobi, V. S. Rains ford, D. D., John Rockefeller and wife, Adele M. Fields, Rabbi Gottheil, William Dean Ilowells, Judge lly. E. Howland, Mrs. Jane Potter Russell, Russell Sage and wife, Mrs. Canduce Wheeler and Airs. Mar Mapes Dodge. KANSAS PARAGRAPHS. When they want to have a very select crowd at Falrview they have a "dollar social. A 40,000 barrel tank ha3 been received at Neodesha in which to store the oil from the various wells. A Parsons paper announces that the social whirl continues. The merry-go-round evidently has nerer left town. The senior class of the state university law school planted a tree on arbor day. They expect it to produce several limbs of the law: Baldwin is getlins: liberal it is now allowed to advertise a theater in that town provided it take place in some other town. Ft. Scott Monitor: There are two or three Kansas papers that it is very dan gerous to quote from, they are so apt to have appropriated without credit. About the only place in the state where the late rain was unwelcome was Emporia, because two rival nines at the normal had to postpone their ball game. Atchison people have been worked up a long time over the inroads the Mis souri ia making on its' western bank. Why should they care it is only a bluff. A church social and a dance occupied one building one night this week at Newton says the Republican; the social being held on the ground floor and the dance in the hall above. It is announced that "dirt will fly" for the Wichita auditorium today. This doesn't seem at all paradoxical to some men who remember that the money they invested in that town took wings. A new way of getting: rid of prairie dogs is being used in Finney county. A ball of cotton saturated with bisulphide of carbon is put into the hole. Even a prairie dog can't stand that and so leave3. Ft Scott is considering the question of closing the crap banks in that place, not of course because they are gambling dens but because there has been cheat ing by the bankers, and of course no gen tleman would do that. Wellington Mail: A man boring a well at Bird City struck six feet of cin ders at a depth of 270 feet That the place had been abandoned was evident, which means the old boy is getting further and further away from Kansas. Atchison Champion: A large white oak tree has been discovered on Sugar creek in the Missouri bottoms by George Henson, which shows marks evidently made by the Indians more than one hun dred years ago. The tree is one of th largest in that vicinity and is several centuries old. PAYING OFF WAR LOANS. Massachusetts Will Pay Oft" the Last of Its War Iebts. Bostojt, April 17. On May 1 the state of Massachusetts will pay off the last of its war loans. The entire loan, known as the bounty loan, and dated May 1, 1864, amounts to $3,402,148, of which $ l 022,643 is a sterling loan, and the bal ance, $4,879,500," is payable in United States money. It has been the object of the treasurer to buy in these bonds from time to time as they could be had on favorable terms, as the payment at one time of so large an amount ot money, one-half of which has to go to London, might be a disturb ing factor in the money market. In the sinking fund against these bonds the state held December 81, 1893, $2,310,113 cash, $2,972,740 of the bonds themselves and $1.0()0,000 Fithburg rail road bonds, which have since been pur chased out of the fund by the proceeds of a new loan. The fund also contains a large amount of Boston and Albany railroad bonds which do not mature until 1902, and some city and town securities which run beyond the maturity of the bounty loan. With these transactions and certain transfers to other funds, the money need ed to meet the outstanding bonds will bn in hand. PILES OF CASH AT FRISCO. Fifteen Millions in the Banks and no In vestment for It. Sas Francisco, April" 17. There is $15,000,000 lying idle in the San Francis co Commercial banks money for which the bankers can find no use. This i said to be the largest surplus that has been known for many years and it is still growing. , The banks do not like it, as they prefer to hold good interest bearing securities instead of gold coin, which does not pay rents for the vault it occupies. This money is offered for loan as low as four per cent on first class securities, but all collateral is scrutinized more closely than was the case a year ago and unless it is gilt edge the money is hardly loaned at any rate. A BIG PIPE LINE. Means of Transporting Wyoming Oil to Eastern Markets. Casper, Wyo., April 17. Articles of incorporation for the Wyoming Pipe Line company have been recorded in the county clerk's office. Casper will be the principal place of business, other places named being Denver, St. Louis, New Or leans and Pittsburg. The pipe line will extend from the Salt Creek oil wells to Orin Junction, northern terminus of the Denver & Gulf railway system, thence to Fort Laramie, whence oil will be shipped in barges on the Platte river to St. Louis, provided f;ood rates to Denver cannot be obtained rom the Denver & Gulf roacL, The cap ital stock is $2,000,000, HARRISON'S SIXTH.

Ex-President Harrison delivered his sixth and concluding lecture on international law before the students of Stanford univer sity yesterday. The chapel was crowded with students and visitors.

Peerless Steam Laundry, 112 and 114 West Eighth street GEORGIA'S NEW SENATOR. Bow Patrick Walsh Made HU Mai lt as a Printer and Editor. v - - Senator Patrick Walsh of Georgia, who succeeded by appointment to the seat left vacant by the death of Senator Colquitt, is of Irish birth and about 55 years of age. He ia the principal owner of the Augusta Chronicle and has been editor of that paper for more than a quarter or a cen tury. He was the southern agent of the old New York Associated Press and after that organiza tion collapsed be- c a m e general manager of the Southern Associ ated Press. He has been promi nent in Georgia' politics for manrr SENATOR WALSH. years and has several times been a mem ber of the state legislature and a deVa gate to Democratic national conven tions. From 1884 tor 1888 he serWl as the Georgia member of the Democratic national executive committee. , - Walsh came to America with hVs par ents when a child. His father seW led in South Carolina, and Patridk le.AJ.-ned to set type in the office of the Charleston Evening News. He worked at tjnte case on various newspapers there for several years as a journeyman and laa' always been loyal to the friendships then formed. ; After he became the owner- of the Au gusta Chronicle and was wSell to do he one day went over to Charleston, and hunting up all the printe.s with whom he had formerly worked.' at the case he gave them and their fPtTnilies an elab orate dinner at one cf the principal hotels of the city. He chartered a steam boat and took the entire party for an ex cursion down the bay the next day. At the beginning of the war Mr. Walsh served in thjO Confederate army for a short time and then went to Au gusta and secured employment as a printer on The Constitutionalist, where he was soon advanced to an editorial position. While stfil on the staff of The Constitutionalist he edited a weekly pa per called The Pacificator, which at tained an extensive circulation. In 1867 he became editor of The Chronticle and 10 years later bought out the concern, annexed The Constitutionalist and haa since made his paper one of the most in fluential in the southern states. HE FIGHTS THE RAILROADS. The Governor of Texas Has Pronounced Views and a Vigorous Polficy. The publication of the spirited corre spondence between Governor Hogg of Texas and one of the superintendents of the Southern Pacific, road in relation to the transportation across the state of Frye's "industrial army" has once again attracted general attention to the sturdy and determined governor of the Lone Star State. It was not Governor Hogg's first bout with railroad officials, for he was the man who despoiled them of some 700, 000 acres of land of which they had unlawfully taken possession under the exceedingly liberal land grant act that formerly prevailed in Texas and had antagonized them in various other ways, so that it was said at the time of bis last election that he had to fight their combined opposition, strengthened by that of the whisky in terests and the foreign money lenders, who were also opposed to him. Governor Hogg is a man of positive convictions in regard to the laws and of tter' fearlessness in enforcing them. When he was first elected attorney general, he said he would purge Texas uf lawlessness and crime or he would bankrupt the state treasury. , One of his knost notable endeavors to redeem that y ledge resulted in the life imprisonment i-tH "' liVSSrx GOVERNOR HOGO. of a man who had committed no less than 16 murders, and who had boasted that the state was powerless to check his career of crime. His course as attorney general ren dered Mr. Hogg so popular that he was nominated for governor in 1890 and elected by a majority of over 150,000 votes. He was elected for a second term by a plurality of 65,000 votes, but con sidering the forces arrayed against him and. the fact that a very popular inde pendent candidate -was in the field in opposition to him he claimed the elec tion as a complete vindication of hia course. Governor Hogg is a native of Texas and was born near Rusk, in Cherokee county, in 1852. He was left a penniless orphan at the age of 12 and had a hard row to hoe to get an education, working his way up to a lawyer's sheepskin through such varied classes in the school of experience as printer's devil, composi tor, country editor, road overseer and justice of the peace. After serving a term as attorney for Wood county he was elected district attorney of the Seventh district and then attorney general of the state, serving four years in each office. Yet he was not quite 38" years of age when he was first elected governor. JL Tip For Travelers. . One pound of cork will support a man cf ordinary size in the water. PAT 7F AUTHORS. Pecuniary &ejrards ot Present Day Story Writers. F.S'jr icial Correspondence,! Boston, April 12. The appointment of a well Xmown author as postmistress of a een all town near here has again aroused "'aquiry regarding the pecuniary rewards, of literature, for, though the lady re if erred to is known to be ' 'popu lar, " 'y.er royalties have not been suffi cient or her to disdain the emoluments of fa.e comparatively humble office for whi c h she made personal application. , 3 "nere ia a wide discrepancy between thtj facts and the general public belief of the profits or lack of them attending literary production. Even the reports of f.J.es, of the number of books disposed tj3 buyers over the counters of the shop or book store, at the newsstand or from the hands of the canvassing agent, are made a mass of contradictions, confus ing to the ideas of the ordinary reader. Miss Frenzy rushes into print either through the medium of a paid advertise ment or the kindness -of some editorial friend with the statement that 50, 000 copies of her work, price 25 cents, have already been sold. Mr. Solid calmly calls attention to the item that 18,000 copies of his novel, price $1, have been taken from the publishers, yet the latter has mad the most money, for the prof its on 18,000 $1 books are the same or dinarily as those on 72.000 25 cent paper novels. He has demonstrated also a su perior gTade of literary workmanship, for few people, no matter with what indifference they spend a quarter on "leisure reading, ' will invest four times that sum in a book, even if universal opinion declares it to be "good. " Royalties on books vary from 5 to 15 per cent on the retail price to from 10 to 15 per cent on the wholesale price, al though the general figure is either 10 per Cent on the wholesale or retail price. Thus an author may receive from 5 to 15 cents royalty on a $1 book. The lat ter sum has been paid only to a very few highly successful authors. Ten per cent of the retail price of a book is a Very satisfactory arrangement to the writer. The wholesale price is usually from CO to 75 per cent of the retail price, though some 25 cent books sell for from 10 to 12 cents, especially when a large edition is issued. But the financial and literary stand ing of the publishing house has much to do with all this, and it is quite advisable to accept 5 per cent from one publisher rather than 10, 15 or any other fancy figure from another, because the first named will Bell 5, 10 or 20 times as many books as the last, owing to its su perior facilities for advertising and its energetic methods. Its imprint alone is conceded to be a testimonial of the worth of the book. But there are exceptions to everything, arid it is possible that a comparatively unknown 'house" on Tremont or Wash ington street of this city, Fourteenth or Twenty-third street, New York, or Wabash avenue, Chicago, may be able to do better with a book than Houghton, Mifflin & Co. Dillingham is selling many thousands of the books of a man who writes under the pseudonym of Albert Ross, hut many first class pub lishers would not succeed so well now if they cared to handle his productions. A. C Gunter was forced by the rejection of hia first novel on the part of 19 Boston and New York publishers to become his own printer. A representative of one of the largest publishing corporations in America has said that, although his firm has millions invested, it could not have made the success of "Mr. Barnes of New York," for the reason that the author publisher gave his entire time and atten tion to that one book, utilizing every known method and originating new ideas to have the people of the United States know of its existence. It is im possible for a publishing house, however great, to make a specialty of any one publication when issuing from two to a dozen books weekly. All publishers are constantly refusing manuscripts of books that are ultimately great successes and accepting others that are dead failures. They abide by their readers' opinions. They cannot do other wise. Literature ia a trade, or a profes sion, or a business, as yon will. There are no more failures, no more successes in this than in the jewelry trade or gro ceries, for 98 men out of 100 in business fail, but if the writer becomes a success he not only realizes a large sum of mon ey in an inconsiderably short time, but also achieves reputation and praise. No writer in the United States is more extensively advertised, is more widely known than William Dean How ells, but there are dozens of bookmak ers who have realized ten times as much money. J. W. Buel has had sold 800, 000 copies of a book that retails from two to three times the price of any of ; Howells' works, and this volume is but one of Buel's half dozen volumes. j The largest firms of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Chicago have a "list" of booksellers who guarantee to take from the publishers a certain num ber one, two or five copies each of every work they issue. This list extends ; in number from 1,000 to 2, 500 copies, , and thus the publisher ia protected from loss, as the number sold will cover the actual expense of publication. The book sellers make the guarantee because the books are sold to them at "special" rates, and any "live" purveyor of books can dispose of at least one volume. Literary conditions, however, have changed, and we shall nevermore seo the success of such poets as Longfellow, Whittier, Bryant and Holmes, though Will Carleton and James Whiteomb Riley have a host of admirers. Though there is an occasional exception like the 'John Ward, Preacher, " of Mrs. Hum phry Ward, the "Ben-Hur" and "Prince of India' of General Wallace and the" "David Balfour' of Stevenson, sensa tional novelists and the wit and humor of Mark Twain, Bill Nye and M. Quad meet the approbation of the great read ing public at present, and so our Massa chusetts story writer and maker of deli eate verse has become an insignificant government official. Albert F. South wicjc ABOUT THAT MEAT. Prisoners Said It Was Spoiled, Prank Long: Said It Wasn't. To the Editor of the State Journal. Sib I notice in your issue of last last evening you do me an injustice, and feeling satisfied that It was the result of misinformation ask you to publish the following: Although I have been furnishing the meals to the city prisoners for years, this is the first season that complaint ba3 been made. The meals are as good now as they have been formerlyand as good as they possibly can be at the price paid, namely, 12J cents per meal. The men got meats, potatoes and bread. Coffee with sugar is furnished three times a day. The meat is what is left from the regular meals, and when there is not enough of that fresh meat and liver is served. The butchers from -whom I buy and the help in my kitchen can testify that spoiled meat of any kind is some thing unknown in my cooking depart ment Respectfully, &c, Fraxk Long.
