DOESHT WANT HIM WHITEWASHED- Senator Householder is Bent on Pall, lnz Hitchcock Thronrh IT There" ' Any Chance to Do It. Senator Householder seems to have at tempted to steal a march on Mrs. Mary E. Lease in callins- the state board of charities together at thia time for the in vestigation of the charges against Supt. Hitchcock at the reform school. As has been stated Hitchcock is the protege of Householder. Mrs. Lease is dissatified with him. The following letter from Mrs. Lease at Rushville. Indiana, was received today by Mrs. Lease's secretary in this city. Mrs. Dr. Haviland: "I will attend the next meeting of the board. I heard yesterday that House holder had called a meeting for April 23 to investigate 'whitewash' matters at the reform school. I telegraphed him to postpone the investigation till the regu lar meeting of the board, as it was im portant that the full board be present, and there was no need of putting the ex pense of a called meeting on the people or Kansas. "There have been serious complaints' for a year from Hitchcock s lack of man agement, yet he is kept there in defiance of good citizens, law and. order. lor "political purposes." lhe board was convened today at 2 p. m., without the presence of Mrs. Lease. Ail the other members of the board are present. 1 he investigation is being held at the Reform school. The complainants are rep resented by jNoah Allen and the charges were formally presented to the board a week ago. R. V. Justice Is one of the principal witnesses. He was a teacher in the institution and was discharged by Hitchcock at about the time the charges were presented. D. T. Jones who is now on the police force will also appear be fore the board, tie was formerly an engi neer in the institution. There are twelve distinct charges against Superintendent Hitchcock, the most prominent being: That he inhu manly beat four boys in the bath room on their bare backs with a raw hide and that he locked up in the dungeon and nearly starved a boy who tried to escape. lie is also charged with extreme care lessness by which the meat belonging to the institution was destroyed by nre. Householder, who is now chairman of the board, secured Hitchcock's appoint ment and he is determined to stay by his man to the last. He has said since the formal charges have been presented that he did not think there was- any truth in them. If the board whitewashes Hitchcock an investigation will be immediately demanded of the governor. HAVE IT IX FOR LEWELLING. , Labor Colons Against Htm on Account of Todd' Appalntuieat. The state federatian of labor has opened up its war on the state adminis tration. An address to the labor unions throughout the state has been issued, signed by the president and secretary. The address is an arraignment of the state labor bureau. It says that the leg islature created the bureau for the bene fit of the wage earners in the cities. The address asserts that Gov. Lewell ing agreed to place the labor bureau in control of a man recommended by organ ized labor but when the name of such a man was presented the governor totally disregarded his pledges and turned the office over to a "political striker" im pressed with the political omnipotence of the farmer and that he ha3 diverted the work of the bureau from its true channel. The address gives the report of the labor commissioner on the agricultural industry some attention and says he has invaded the domain of the state board of agriculture and has prepared a report calculated to repel immigration. The governor, the address continues has been requested to remove the labor commissioner but ha? expressed himself as satisfied with him and pays no atten tion to the demands of organized labor. It therefore calls upon all trade union ists to assist in the defeat of Governor Lewelling and asserts that the Kansas federation will always adhere to the principle that the Kansas labor commis sioner shall be a representative union man.

State Bonis Officials Talk A boot Her Renewed Candidacy Var Senator. It is reported that Mary Elizabeth Lease while resting in Chicago last week addressed a hundred or more letters to her Populist friends in Kansas, appeal ing to them to nominate and support for the legislature only men who could be depended upon to vote against the re election of United States Senator John Martin. She also called upon her friends to fight fusion in every form it might be presented. tone warned them against a scheme which she claimed to have dis covered to give the Democrats congress men in the First and Second districts and the secretary of state and associate jus tice of the supreme court on the state ticket. The letter closed with the promise that she would return to Kansas in Septem ber to remain and take part in the cam paign until the election in November. It was also said that she might be a candi datefgr senator herself. When becretary of totate Osborn was told of the report that Mrs. Lease had de signs on the United States senate and had addressed letters to prominent Pop ulists asking them to use their influence to keep the Democrats out of the legis lature, he looked mad. "It is that old bee in her bonnet again. We are getting very tired of it. I have known for a long time that she would be a candidate, bo I see nothing surprising in that an nouncement.7' . , Auditor Prather said: "I don't see why she is against fusion. She is the original fusionist. She' was a delegate in the state convention that nominated Willitts and she voted for Robinson. In the convention two years ago she sup ported John Martin for associate justice. I don't see why she is bo strongly op posed to fusion now." AN EX-POLICEMAN'S IDEA Of What Should Be Done In Relation to "the toxey Movement." To the Editor of tbe State Journal. Sir: The Coxey movement is assum ing a serious aspect, it is time for all good citizens to look this matter square in the face and be prepared to meet it; if something is not done, and that speedily, this movement will lead to revolution. My theory is that it is easier to prevent crime, than it is to punish the criminal and a great deal cheaper. Kansas al ways leads. Let her not lag now. This Coxey army is composed of two distinct classes. The honest unemployed who seek work, they are led and counseled by honest men. The other the dishonest tramp who don t want work, they are led and counseled by anarchists and ene mies of good government, and law and order. We have both classes in Topeka, let us provide work for those who will work, and law and order for those who won't. I believe a fund sufficient to keep our own citizens at work (until this matter is settled by congress,) can be raised in the following way: Each person now em ployed to donate according to his means, those getting $50 per month, $5; under $100, $10; under $150, $15; $150 to $200, $20, and such other amounts as they may choose. This fund could be used to grade Kansas avenue north and south, lenth street west and other avenues; the second or vicious class who can work and wont: put them to breaking rock as pro vided in the vagrant laws, the rock to be used on the graded streets, thus giving us value received for our money, provid ing work for our unfortunate citizens, punish the vagrants, and keep peace and good order in our city. Here goes for $10. JNext. xours for Law and Order. J. F. Dcmont. HAND CONCERTS TO BEGIN. They Will be Given at Garfield Park as Formerly. A series of open air band concerts by Marshall's military band, will begin at Garfield park on the first Sunday in May, if the weather will permit. These con certs will be continued all summer as they were last season, and at intervals of twice a week. The band, it is said, has a five-year lease on the park, but the street railway company has no other interest in the park than furnishing transportation to the frequenters of it.
