Forecast: For Kansas Fair, except local thunder storms today; probably cooler in eastern portion tonight; southerly winds. It is to be hoped that the industrialists won't be given a martyr. The army it seems is to have something else to do for awhile besides eating, and playing poker. The enthusiastic reception accorded Harrison at Indianapolis yesterday was enough to make McKinley tremble. Cleveland favors the Nicaragua ca nal. This seems to be the only thing he and the south can get together on now. Atchison and Lawrence both have the smallpox. It is probably the result of being so long pitted against each other. The list of Populists after Lewelling's place continues to increase. Isn't this scramble to get into a dead man's shoes a little unseemly? The country would hate to have the things happen necessary to cause it, but it couldn't help feeling gratified to see congress scared speechless. It was probably merely a coincidence that ex-President Harrison finished his lectures in California just in time to get back to the Indiana convention. The Salvation Army cadet who wouldn't eat pie when put to his mouth has given a sure proof of the un-Democratic nature of that organization. Let some of the poor fellows who are hiccoughing themselves to death, read Senator Allen's resolution through with out taking a breath and get cured. Senator Allen's resolution defining what the commonwealers may and may not do, is characteristic of a man who can talk fourteen hours without stopping. Montana United States marshals don't Eeem to have had any better success than those who chased the Daltons, though they were luckier in not getting killed. The Montana Coxeyites after having had a fast ride east will now walk back. They have changed the old adage into the shortest way round is the longest way home. Ia it because of the Kellys, Hogans and Fitzgeralds mixed up in the indus trial army 'movement, that some people fear we are to have another French rev olution? The unpopularity of the administra tion and those in authority at a time like this is peculiarly unfortunate. Sym pathy is likely to be bestowed upon those Buffering from their own misdeeds when none is deserved. Congress sits like a great fat animal, bloated with a sense of its own im portance, calmly and stupidly blinking its little eyes as the faint sensations it esteems thoughts tickle its brain. Let it do something or waddle off home. 'General" ilogan wired Superintend ent Finn that he would want his private car to continue his journey in. It was very courteous in the general to allow Mr. Finn the pleasure of thinking the car was reallv his. The ordering out of the military to stop the law breaking band of men on the Northern Pacific, was most salutary. Force should not be used unless abso lutely necessary, but a disregard of the rights of property cannot be too sum marily repressed. Amidst all the lightning changes of this unusual and extraordinary year po litical platforms alone remain unchang ed and unchanging. Indiana Republi cans have followed In the footsteps of their fathers by "pointing with pride" and "denouncing as unpatriotic and ex travagant" United States capital is reported to be pouring into Mexico in large quanti ties, in response to inducements held out by the president of our sister republic. It is being invested in coffee raising, in the live stock industry, and ia manufac tories. Among other inducements of fered are freedom from duty of all arti cles needed in the business to be en gaged in, and an immunity from taxa tion for a period of ten Tears. ; THE BRIDGE. While the citizens of Topeka are busy securing a dam across the Kansas river, a woolen mill, a new court bouse, a high school building and new railroads they are neglecting a matter which U in some respects more important than any of these things. Reference is made to a new bridge across the river on Kansas avenue. .For about twenty-five year the pres ent structure-has done duty, and during the latter "half of Its history has been a constant menace to the lives of the per sona using it. It' has not only been a menace to their lives, but to their pocket books also, because if it ever goes down, which it must do some time unless re placed by a new one, it will certainly carry some one down with it and there will be a large bill of damages for some body to pay. - Attention has been called to this mat ter many times in various ways, and a number of efforts have been made to se cure a new bridge, but the propositions have always been loaded down in some way or had a suspicious look about them and have been defeated. Sometimes the amount asked for has been thought too large. The last proposition carried with it the erection of two other bridges and was defeated, as it should have been. Another strong point against the voting of funds for a new bridge, in the minds of some people, has been the idea that it was in the interest of the city railway. This objection is now removed, as the company has a suitable bridge of its own. It seems there should be some way of getting at this matter now and it ought to be done at once. It is estimated that the city of Topeka pays about three fifths of the taxes of Shawnee county and hence contributes that proportion to the building of afl the bridges of the county. It would be but fair and right therefore that a new bridge on Kansas avenue, the one thoroughfare from North to South Shawnee county, should be built by Shawnee county. Many of the heaviest taxpayers outside the city have been willing at any time to Bupport any prop osition to this end that looked fair and straight, but the country people do not intend to be robbed if they can help it. We must have 'better business manage ment on the part of the county commis sioners. A number of plans for a new bridge have been made and are doubtless on file somewhere, from which a good selection could be made. Let this be done and let a proposition be submitted to the voters of Shawnee county for the issu ance of a sufficient amount of long time, low rate bonds to pay for it and it would carry. This should be done in to be voted upon at the fall elections at the farthest The country people would favor it not only because it is right that they should do so but because that they realize that if the present structure should go down they would probably be called upon to pay their proportion of the damages. The city voters would favor it on the ground of both necessity and economy. The expense of maintaining the old bridge would pay interest on a good round sum. A new floor has been neces sary about once in four years entailing an expense of about $2,200 each time. Besides this, repairing of some kind is going on almost continually. It needs reflooring now. It is suggested that the Commercial club at its next meeting take up this matter, get it in shape and prosecute jt vigorously to a consumma tion. The work would go a long way toward furnishing labor to the unem ployed of the city. Let us work for this necessity now not wait till the present bridge falls and makes a never to be forgotten hor ror. The Democratic senate has its ear to the ground, and joins the Republicans in construing the adverse results of almost every election held recently into a pro test against their tariff measures. Sena tor Br ice is quoted as authority for the statement that the Wilson bill is to be still further altered, presumably to put it in accord with the supposed popular de mand. If they should lose the Alabama election they would probably conclude to let the McKinley act stand. As an ag gregation of cowards the Democratic congress is unparalleled in history. MADDEN INSTEAD OF SCOTT "Who ta Talked of Far Kamlaatloa Against Charlie Curtis. A boom has been started to nominate John Madden for congress by the Popu lists of the Fourth district to make the race against Charley Curtis. Mr. -UadJen who is one of the attor ney for the defense in the Reform school investigation now in progress, will be re membered as the gentleman who was two years ago placed on the Republican ticket as presidential elector, but who re fused to. accept the nomination and an nounced himself as a Populist in a letter which attracted much attention at the time. Mr. Madden was formerly a resident of Chase county- but now lives at Em poria and is one of the regents of the State Normal school. State Senator Householder said today: "I understand 3. M. Scott favors the nom ination of Madden and I consider him one of the brightest men in the state. As an orator he will stand up beside any one I know."

Jest now the fact that there axe two Republican county committees in -New York city isprob ably not of su preme impor tance to the rest of the world, but circoma tances might arise which would make that fact interesting to the people at large, and they might like to know something of John E. Milhol john e. melhollantx land, the newest factor in the muddle and president of one of the committees, both of which, by the wav, claim to be 'reirular. ' Mr. Milholland is only about 34 years old, but be has managed to crowd into the last decade of his life an experience Bnch as few men twice his age can look back tipon. He is a New Yorker and was born in Essex county, in the heart of the Adirondacks. When he Was 3 years old, his father's house was de stroyed by fire, and his mother and eld est sister were burned to death, the boy himself narrowly escaping the same hor rible fate. When he was 9 years old, his father took him to Ireland, and for two years he attended school in that country and En eland. The rest of his education he received in the Paterson and Albany high schools and the New York univer sity. For a number of years young Milhol- land had contributed to the local press. An opportunity presented itself to buy a country paper the Ticonderoga Sen tinel and he became its editor and pro prietor. In 19 months he doubled its Bize, circulation and advertising patron age and sold it for three times what he paid for it. Then he went to New York city and secured employment as a reporter on the New York Tribune, where he was soon regarded as one of the best posted writ ers in New York on local, state and na tional politics. He made valuable ac quaintanceships among the Republican leaders and formed a warm friendship for ex-Senator Piatt which has endured the tests of many years. On the creation of the United States immigration bureau t the port of New York Mr. Milholland was appointed chief of the inspectors charged with the enforcement, of the contract labor law and got himself into a good deal of hot water with some of those interested in evading the restric tions of that act. He was a delegate to the Republican national convention in 1892 and had charge of the labor depart ment of the Republican national com mittee during the subsequent campaign. PERRY S. HEATH. The Enterprising Young Journalist Who Now Controls The Commercial Gazette. Perry S. Heath, who has acquired controlling interest in Jilurat Halstead's old paper, the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette, is an experienced and brilliant newspaper man who is much better known to his brother journalists than to the world at large. He has distinguished himself in journalistic fields on many special occasions, but his achievements have generally been of the kind that newspaper men talk over and admire among themselves rather than write about for the information of the world of readers. Mr. Heath has been promi nent among the newspaper correspond ents at Washington for a number of years. He has made a reputation as a very versatile writer and an exception ally expert newsgatherer. From 1882 to 1889 he was connected with the Wash ington bureau of the United Press, and in 1887 he went to Charleston and wrote up the great earthquake for that institu tion. He akro went to Europe on one oc casion, and out of the trip grew a book which he afterward published under the title of "A Hoosier In Russia. " PERRY S. HEATH. His newspaper work has not always received Mr. Heath's undivided atten tion, for he has large interests in real es tate in his native city -Muncie, Ind. and elsewhere and has considerable cap ital invested in the banking business. He and his brother Fletcher organized the Miami Valley National bank of Hamilton, O., in 1886, and he is also part owner of the Bank 01 Mason and the First National bank of Oxford, O. , and the Delaware County National bank of Muncie. The Heath iron building which he built at Muncie last year is considered one of the finest buildings 1l the state of Indiana. Mr. Heath was born at Muncie in 1857 and is one of an unusually bright fami ly of boys wno have made their marks in the world. At the age of 14 he enter ed the newspaper business in regulation style as a printer's devil and in 1831 went to Dakota and started the first pa per ever printed at Aberdeen. It ia quite safe to predict that under his adminis tration a new impetus will be given the business and influence of the famous old Commercial G asset to, so long the edito rial home of snch leading journalistic lights as Murat Halstead, the good Dea con Richard Smith and Samuel R. Reed. r''ja,Tf 3fl" 'i a .LEAVES THE CHURCH. Prot Hopkins of the Kansas Art School, IS IKCEHSED IT DR. ALDERSON ) Account of tke Matter's Strictures aae Jtrt Im I at Bnniaj X lariat's Mermoa-frof. .Hopkins Withdraws froaa aCexaboroUlp. George E. Hopkins, the principal of the art school, has withdrawn from the congregation of the First Presbyterian church, by reason of the views held by its pastor, Rev. Dr. Alderson, on the sub ject of nude in art Sunday night Dr. Alderson took occasion to say there was nothing in the fair's art gallery of per manent value, and that humanity if not decency would put 'overcoats on the fig ures on the peristyle. To Mr. Hopkins this was the last straw, and today he ad dressed the following letter to the pastor: Rev. 3. B. Alderson: Dear Sir: -The statement in the Journal recently of your views regard ing antique art and the Hermes In parti cular, warrants my commending for perusal the article by Charles Waldstein on Greek art in the accompaning maga zine. The Inclosed clipping will reveal my own profession that of a painter. 1 also teach drawing and painting, and in the latter employment of my time am engaged in pointing out to the youths of this city the beauties of the nude figure from casts and antique sculpture simply because we cannot afford a live model. As my pupils range in years from nine to sixty-two, I do not see how you can consistently bring me before the session for expulsion. That an enlightened christian can hold the views you do is beyond my compre hension. That they are not held by the average christian of culture in this city is shown by the fact that four-fifths of any audience gathered in Library hall are either members of the church or church attendants, and it is from just such audi ences that a majority of your converts come. - Now, consider for a moment the possi ble injury you are doing the cause of Christ by a public announcement of such views. Granting you are entitled to such views, do you think it advisable to com bat forms of enjoyment, nay, means of development and of positive benefit, which the community in which you la bor have about them and have had for nine years? Indeed, sir, you are the first to broach the idea that such statues are demoralizing in their tendency, and you have done more harm in turning the minds of people into a channel they are not accustomed to a low, sensual chan nel than you have accomplished good in doing it Even granting that your in tentions were good, I say you used con foundedly little tact in doing what you did. Do you suppose Christ in your pro fession would have done this thing? As suredly not Hypocrisy, insincerity and selfishness he did condemn, but we are not told of his denouncing the people because of the statues they had about them. . And there were actually nude children everywhere, but regardless of this he said: "Of such is the kingdom of heav en." Your remarks recall Dr. Johnson's reply when in the presence of a nude figure. He was asked by Boswell if he didn't think it vulgar. ;' "No sir. but your remark is." I myself am a firm be liever in the sentiment that "To the pure all things are pure." That your atten tion should be drawn to the fig-leaf, or that you note its absence when viewing elevating examples of sculpture, is your misfortune. Your statement in the Sunday evening sermon on the World's fair, that there was nothing in the art gallery of perma nent value, or that would tend to the ad vancement of American art, bespeaks at once the mind of the speaker to be in inverse ratio to the breadth of the state ment It is to be deplored that no one else saw the "human figure four teen feet high on the peristyle," referred to in the same sermon, as mere humanity if not decency would have furnished the nude ones at least with an overcoat or sun umbrella during the heat and cold of the many months they posed. It strikes me as being decidedly out of your province to pass judgment on eight thousand paintings and hundreds of pieces of sculpture upon the minds of hundreds of thousands who saw them, unless we assume that all go through life on the same narrow plane of the speaker. May I ask if you profess the same knowledge of engineering, of chemistry, of science, of astronomy, of music, as you do of art? My continued absence from your congregation is here with explained. I am, sincerely. UIORGK li HOPKINS. For Over Fifty Year Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrun has been used for teething.
