M'rathfr Indications. Washington, April 23. Forecast till 8 p. m. Tuesday: For Kansas Local rains, warmer la northeast portion to night; variable winds becoming westerly. Queen Victoria ia said to have a strong dislike to furs. Are there no bar bers in England? Jcst now Brazilian paragraphers are probably making jokes about the daily revolutions in the United States. Evert man who wears a beard thinks the only reason every other man doesn't wear one is because he can't grow It. Gov. Altgeld is a very sick man. He should lose no time in making his peace with God, for pardons aren't so plenty over there. If Coxey doesn't hurry the college commencement season will be over and the great problems solved before he gets to Washington. It is noticeable that the industrial armies hve multiplied and new recruits have poured in Just as the house-cleaning time commences. As long as the regulations of Kelly's army prohibit the keeping of liquor in camp there is little danger of anarchists joining the movement. The only American industry the threat ened tariff legislation hasn't affected seems to be baseball; the crowds at games are larger than ever. Mme. Sarah Grand, the author of the "Heavenly 'Iwins," was married when she was only sixteen. This explains in part her grudge against the public. Princess Alix Helena Louise Beat rice of Hesse, is to be married to the czarowitch. Most people won't blame her for wanting to change her name. The Democrats have given up their demigod Cleveland but they may be easily consoled with a demijohn. With Democrats the words are synonymous. Carl Browne has been keeping a close watch of the movements of congress or he could never have spoken of the "languorous languor of the lingering day." Coxey's army is being reproduced on the stage in New York. The audience will probably furnish it with plenty of provisions, though some of them may be spoiled. What does Editor Stead think would happen if Kelly came to Chicago? That is what is agitating the city by the lake now, it being in no danger of the other visitation. Gen. Kellt would doubtless say to Manager St. John of the Rock Island: "That ia all very well Mr. St. John but tine words butter no parsnips and com mendation is not box cars." "If the Devil came to Chicago"- is the title of a book in answer to Editor Stead's. There is no doubt in a great many people's minds about his already be ng there, so the hypothesis la unneces sary. J. R. Sage, chief of the Iowa weather and crop service, says that if he could give farmers a guaranty that Kelly's men are willing to work, he can provide every one of the 1,500 a good job.on an Iowa farm 4a ten days. Ex-President Harrison's last words to the law students at Leland Stanford university were to advise them not to be in a hurry to get into politics. The gen eral may be said to be doing all he can to keep himself clear of competition. Senator George's bill providing for' the reduction of congressmen's salaries from $5,000 to (4,000 may pass after all. This congress would pass it, the next congress would be affected by if and the Democrats would thus have their re venge. ConorE3S seems greatly worked up over the coming of Coxey to Washing ton, and yet it has the remedy for the whole movement in its own hands. If it would adjourn for 'six months and go' home, confidence would' return, -business start up, and these armies disband. Con--gress not Coxey ia the menace. LOOK 0-V THIS PICTURE. Now, while thousands of men are marching on to Washington with the in tention of. making congress "do some thing," it may" be interesting to know how congress is spending its time. A special dispatch to the St. Louis Post Dispatch and the same dispatch to the New York World state that when the tariff debates begin at 1 o'clock in the afternoon, every senator except three or four leaves the senate chamber and goe3 driving or otherwise amuses himself. The correspondent says: "A glimpse of the senate yesterday afternoon afforded a fair illustration of the utter lack of in terest and Inattention. Senator Gallin ger, at 2 o'clock, was going through the I motions of a senator delivering a speech. I He had borrowed a chair down in the front row and was reading so fast that no stenographer could report him from a mass of typewritten manuscript about a foot thick. He actually read so fast that all sense of punctuation and inflection was lost. " The vice president was dozing in his chair, one clerk was on guard at the secretary's desk, where generally there are four, and all the pages but one were playing marbles and boxing down in the basement. There were two sena tors oh the Republican side; one was the handsome' and wealthy McMillan of Michigan, who was listening because he expected to take the floor later in the day and wanted Gallinger to listen to him. The other was the long-whiskered Moses Dolph of Oregon, who was listen ing for. the same reason. Over on the Democratic side Senator Cockrell was writing letters, Pugh of Alabama was talking in a stage whisper that could be heard all over the house to one of his friends, and the new senator, Walsh of Georgia, sat on a sofa telling stories to a group of friends. Through the open door of the cloak rooms on both the Re publican and Democratic side of the sen ate chamber blue smoke was issuing, and the repeated bursts of laughter in dicated that Wolcott or Blackburn or some other of the jolly men of the sen ate had told a new story. As it grew toward 5 o'clock the cloak room crowds evaporated and no one was left but the four or five senators pretending to listen to Gallinger, McMillan and Dolph, and up in the gallery a few spectators were scattered, wondering what it was about and wherg they were at." This is what general debate on the tariff means in the senate; so this is the way that congress is legislating for the people. - How do you like it? Chicago Herald: Governor Bombastes Furioso Jackson, of Iowa, has added neither to his popularity nor to his rep utation for good sense by badgering the Coxeyites with the militia. Kelly's army made its progress from California to Council Bluffs without causing any troubla There was no indication that it would do any harm in Iowa. But Jackson, either from an itch for notoriety or through the promptings of fool advis ers, made a great hubbub and ordered out the state troops to maintain the peace. The result has been exactly opposite to that which was intended. All the dis order that has occurred has been caused by drunken militiamen and vaporing officers. The Coxeyites have been not ably quiet and law-abiding. If Jackson had kept his hands off the commonweal en would probably have been out of the state by this time. His interference has stirred up a turmoil, got the rail roads into a bad humor, caused the citi zens of Council Bluffs great expense and trouble, and kept Kelly's followers from pursuing their march. He ought to be proud of himself. The annual convention of the Kansas State Sunday school association will be held this year at Wichita, May 8-9-10. Among other noted workers to be present are Dr. Vincent and Dr. Duncan, of New York; Prof. Greenwood and Dr. Jesse Bowman Young, of St. Louis; Prof. Ex cell, of Chicago, and Dr. Heisler, of Den ver. Rates are one fare for the round trip, and Wichita is getting ready for a thousand delegates. Rcdtard Kipling in an interview in the Sr. James Gazette, London, says: "There ia a dyspepsia epidemic in Amer ica." Weil, he would have us read his books, what can he expect. THE LOS ANGELES SUNK. The Steamer Strikes a Rack Near Mon terey. CaL. and Six Lives Los'. Monteret, CaL, April 23. From the latest information to be had here it is believed that at least six lives were lost with the steamer Los Angeles which struck on the rocks off Point Sur late Saturday night. Three bodies have been cast upon the beach near the light house. These are the bodies of Timothy No lan, fireman of the steamer; Fitzgerald, a passenger, and a hostler named Saun ders from Los Angeles. The youth who died in one of the lifeboats from expos ure in the water and while clinging to the rigging, was the son of Mrs. Augusta Curtin of Loa Angeles. It is also known that S. N. Sheridan an aged passenger from Ventura, and a Chinese steerage passenger from Los Angeles were drowned. The manner of the fireman Nolan's death was an added terror to the occu pants of the life boat in which he at tempted to reach the shore. The man at the oars worked the heavy craft almost into the breakers which pounded up against the steep, rocky cliffs at the sum mit of which is Point Sur lighthouse, but so dangerous waj their position in the heavy swell that they dared not, at tempt a landing below the cliff. When they put about and headed out to sea again, Nolan plunged into the sea determined to swim to the rocky shore. It was little less than suicide, for he drowned In full sight of all in the boat.' It Is believed that later reports will re veal a still greater loss of life. The steamer Los Angeles has now sunk . below the surface of the ocean. Nothing can be saved. There was no in surance on the vessel.or her cargo which is estimated worth $50,oQU. SOLE AGENTS In Top ska for Butterick Patterns.

WELL OS Of Bringing Railroad Excursions to Topeka IN THE INTEREST OF IMMIGRATION. Railroad JCews of Interest Sew Time Cmdvn the Itoek Islsnil. The iansas Immigration association has now ioi the hands of the printer 25,000 circulars advertising Kansas and holding up to view exhaustively her many advan tages. These circulars will be ready by May 1st and will be taken east for distri bution. Manager C H.Edgecombe will take the Rock Island territory and Secre tary J. Q. Royce the Santa Fe. More than sixty prominent cities in the east will be visited and thoroughly canvassed to gether with the surrounding country. Two excursions will leave Chicago on May 2ath on the Rock Island and on the Santa Fe bound for Topeka, and from here the excursionists will be taken to all the principal cities of the state and to any other parts of Kansas they may desire to visit Both of these roads have made a rate for these excursions of one far for the round trip from Chicago and intermediate points. The leaders in the association are very enthusiastic about its prospects and ex pect to bring several hundreds,, perhaps thousands, of homeseekera to Kansas during the summer. No effort to that effect is being spared. A JOtLV'BIO CROWD Of the Ticket Agent Coining Back from Colorado This Evening. The eastern ticket Agents' reunion re turning from San Francisco did not pasa through Topeka last evening as expected. They took a side trip on the Rio Grande & Western and to Denver Saturday and were delayed a day. They will be here this evening at 5:10 o'clock as the second section of No. 6. The train will consist of eight coaches and a dining car and will carry nearly 400 passenger agents. W. J. Black of the Santa Fe will re turn with them. SOME FISH S TORIES Told by Boys In tl e Snta Fe Office Who Went Fishing'. Yesterday was Sunday and fisli stories are floating about the Santa Fe offices today. The four young men who went to Cedar Grove claim they caught nearly 40 pounds of fish and 'were nearly dragged into the water several times by fish they didn't catch. W. H. Simpson was on the train returning from Law rence last evening and saya that '-Pick" Smith got on at Lake View with a 85 pound buffalo which he caught in the lake there, and that he also .had three catfish weighing ten pounds each.

Railroad News Items Interesting- to Rail roaders and the Public. The Santa Fe has round house accom modations in Topeka for seventy locomo tives. A. P. Tanner, assistant general freight agent of the Santa Fe, returned from the east Sunday. It is now announced that the Kansas City fruit dealers will not boycott the Union Pacific railway.

It Mar Levy the Tax to Support the De Koisslere Home. Judge Hazen in the district court this morning decided the famous DeBois siere Odd Fellows Orphans Home case in favor of the Grand lodge; bo the Grand lodge is given the right to levy the tax to support the DeBoissiere- Or phans' Home. This was an injunction suit brought by Reno lodge No. 99, I. O. O. F. and other lodges against the Grand lodge I. O. O. F. of Kansas to re strain the collection of the per capita tax for the DeBoissiere Odd .Fellows Or phans' Home. ' i The opinion is an elaborate one cover ing twelve typewritten pages, and ably discusses the questions raised in the case. Judge Hazen holds that the legislation by the Sovereign Grand lodge I. O. O. F. enacted in 1892, gives full authority to the Grand lodge of Kansas to levy the tax in question. Also that the tax was legally levied. Also that the deed of trust made by Mr. DeBoissiere, vests the title to the valuable property conveyed by him, in the Grand lodge I. O. O. F. of Kansas, for the purposes of an orphans' home and industrial school, and that under the authority of the Sovereign Grand lodge cited, the Grand lodge of Kansas, has full power to levy such per capita tax, as in its judgment may be necessary, to establish and carry on the home. - PULLMAN MEN TO QUIT. Four "Thousand Workmen Will Strike on May First. Chicago, April 23. The Times says: The 4,000 employes of the Pullman Pal ace Car company at Pullman will declare a strike May 1. The trouble has been brewing ever since the reduction in the men's wages ordered last year. No Btrike was declared when the re duction was made, because the men were only imperfectly organized and no move ment could have been made effective. During the last six weeks, however, ac tive efforts have been made by the Pull man employes themselves and by the labor leaders of Chicago to bring all of them into the fold of the building trades' council. This has practically been done, so that a general strike when ordered will now be effective. Peerless Steam Lssundry Peerless Steam Laundry- Ulail Orders Promptly Filled. WRITE FOR SAMPLES.

Judge Caldwell's Circuit Covers One-fourth, the Area of the United States. United States Circuit Judge Henry Clay Caldwell, whose decision in the case of the Union Pacific railroad employees ia of rational interest and importance, has one of the most onerous po sitions in the ju dicial service. His circuit, which in extent is about one fourth of the JUDGE Caldwell, area of the Unit ed States, excluding Alaska, includes Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Min nesota, North and South Dakota, Wyo ming, Colorado and Arkansas, 10 states in all, and his duties are exceptionally varied in character and enormous in quantity. Judge Caldwell was born in what is now West Virginia in 1832. When he was a child 4 years of age, his parents moved westward in a section of the state of Iowa, which wns then a part cf the territory of Wisconsin. His boyhood was chiefly given over to the most ar duous kind cf toiL What books ho was ablo to secure were eagerly devoured, and at the age of 1 7 he began the study of law in an office at Keosauqua, Ia. Three years later ho was admitted to practice, and by the time he was 24 he was prosecuting attorney cf hi3 district. He then went to the state legislature, and during two sessions was chairman of the house judiciary committee. The civil war breaking out, he threw aside everything to enter the service and was enrolled as major of the Third Io wa cavalry. Subsequently he became colonel of the regiment, succeeding Gen eral Bussey, assistant secretary of the interior during Mr. Harrison's adminis tration. Aa hti officer he was intrepid, energetic and efficient and would prob ably have attained bigb. rank had not President Lincoln taken hira from the ranks to serve as the first district judge of Arkansas. This appointment was made in 1864, and Judge Caldwell retained the office until March, 1890, when he succeeded David J. Brewer of Kansas as circuit judge. As presiding officer of the fed eral court in Arkansas he made his name as a jurist. His court was the first to pass upon the many questions arising out of the :vil war, and the justness and evenness of his decisions are shown in the fact that not one of his opinions carried to the United States supreme court was overruled.
