Weather Indirstioss. Washisotos, May 8 For Kansas Forecast till 8 p. m. Wednesday: Fair, except showers in eastern portion tbia evening or tonight; warmer; variable winds. The Czar of Russia plays a cornet. This is another blow at freedom. The name of industrial for Coxey's army seems to be a palpable misnomer. Boss CkoKER will resign from the head of Tammanr. Can it be that there is nothing left in New York to steal? There is one thing at least that all people must admire in Col. Breckinridge and that is his sublime assurance. The only war-like feature of Kelly's journey on boats down the Des Moines river will be the shooting of the dams. The witness in the Coxey trial who de clared that the police are not the law must have lived all his life in a country village. It seems to be a greater crime in the eyes of Washington people to walk on the grass than to trample on the rights of citizens. i If ex-President Harrison were a Dem ocrat seeking the nomination for presi dent, it would be quite unnecessary to speak of a scramble. The only good that is expected from the book that General Fry intends to write is that it may serve as an antidote for "Heavenly Twins." The first commonwealer to seize upon the proper method of getting a hearing from congress is General Fry, who will take a lot of money along. Since so many newspapers have gone into the picture business, the occupa tion of coupon clipping has ceased to be one of peculiar distinction. A medical authority says that of all parts of the human body the mouth heals the quickest, so there is at least some hope for Secretary Osborn. Ax order has been issued at Rome warning Italians not to come to the United States. This seems to be aimed at our hand organ industry. Coxet appears to be like a great many other men who try to make up for the lack of creases in their cerebrums by putting them in their trousers. Mark Twain says there are only thirty-five jokes in existence. This will be news to the man who has thought all along that his was the only one. The announcement that all of Fitzger ald's commonwealers smoke cigarettes was unnecessary, it had been previously stated that they were a cultured lot. In New York they call the opponents of woman suffrage the antis. This seems paradoxical as almost all the aunties have hitherto been arrayed in its favor. A noticeable indication that the Popu lists of Oregon have given up all hope is that they have invited Gov. Waite to come there and make campaign speeches. Senators worked all day Sunday on the tariff bill. Congress simply reverses the ordinary custom and works one day in the week while it rests the other six. Senator Hill is said to be the only Democrat who will vote against the Wil son bill. Mr. Hill's good judgment will soon rival his unscrupulousness in amount Yoc may waste the people's money, You may juggle sugar shares. And think it's awful funny If the groaning public cares; But you cannot be forgiven For the infamous trespass. IX by any force you're driven To tread upon the grass. There is a bitter controversy among the Catholics in Denvtr and Mgr. Batolli has been sent for to settle it As Gover nor Waite hasn't declared himself the issue ia still in doubt. Almost every change made by the senate compromise committee of Demo crats was an increase la duty, and one of the moat totally changed schedules was iron. Those shrewd Democrats! They probably expect to carry Pennsylvania. - NOT BAD; ONLY A BLUNDERER. What a lot of mistakes the Populist governor has made in his appointments! Some of them have been made through his state boards, but this does not relieve him of the responsibility. The naming of Dr. McCasey as superintendent of the insane asylum is another .instance of blundering which now has to be undone. Why have these mistakes been made? Clearly because Governor Le welling who has been Unfortunate in nearly all of his appointments, hasn't a clear insight into human nature. He can't discern the difference between a man of character and a knave. He doesn't know when a fool ia talking to him and when a person of good sense is doing bo. Governor Lewelling hasn't the rig'at kind of capac ity for his position. He is not a student of men. He is bamboozled, misled and made a laughing stock of by designing persons and hasn't the penetration to know it Coupled with this lack is a mulish fixity of determination to "bull" a mistake through when it is discovered, which, only makes him the more ridicu lous. Mr. Lewelling is a tremendously senti mental man. He allows his imagination to dwell on the beauties of a remodeled social system, and hasn't the sensibility to correct some of the inequalities and abuses under the present system which it Is easily within his power to do. He is more or less of a dreamer, and thoroughly unpractical; either he is this or he is a hypocrite. On no other ground can we explain his Todds, Artzes, Hitchcock, McCaseys and a lot of minor appoint ments in Topeka which have been no toriously unfit In the miners riot at Scottdale, Pa., Friday when Winchesters were drawn on the advancing strikers the men put their wives ahead to receive the bullets. It was a case of "afteryou, ladies." The true Hungarian neverforgets his gallantry in an emergency of this kind. The reason Croker gave for giving up the leadership of Tammany was the work attached to the position. To expect a man of Chief Croker's ability to engage in debasirfg common toil was indeed pre posterous and unreasonable. General Randall has been living on dainties while his men have been almost starving, so the latter claim. How a man with such fine qualifications for congress has kept out of that body is a matter of surprise. An Episcopal bishop in St. Louis has joined the Salvation army auxiliary. When the army gets more regalia and has more ceremonies he will probably come clear over. General Fbt expects to have $2,000 in his treasury by the time he gets to Washington. If he encounters 'congress or the Democrats of the administration, he will nver get away with it SLINGS AND ARROWS. The reason given by some of the can didates for county offices for running is like that of the Kentucky landlord who charged $2 for a meal. "The fact is, I need the money." The king of Italy eats only one meal a day. He has to save money in order to keep up those five palaces of his. V It is too bad to remove Dr. McCasey just as he was beginning to create a great society center at the asylum. CoL Breckinridge says he is afraid of no more thunderbursts. Lightning never strikes twice in the same place. In. Breckinridge's case it doesn't have to. There is a revolution on the Mosquito coast Doubtless this will double the number of long billed refugees that ma nually come northward. ' CoL Kohlsaat tried for several years to run his big bakeries and the Chicago Inter Ocean but he finally concluded that he knew more about feeding the people's stomachs than their minds. "v Boggs "I understand Bandmaster Batontist has an attack of nervous pros tration." . Scroggs "Why, what caused it?" Boggs "Oh, the band actually pre sumed to end a medley of Scotch airs at last Sunday's concert without Auld Lang Syne." There is talk of moving the national capital westward. Perhaps expectation of this is what kept General Kelly in Des Moines so long. V The Washington policeman is a swell clubman. The swell is iu his head. The fact that all the rich men in Chi cago are in favor of remonetization of silver makes the Populists feel doubtful of that plank in their platform. Some of the new neglige shirts are so loud that you can't hear the 5 o'clock whistle blow when they are in your vi cinity. . The petition in boots ought to have had box-toes good for kicking pur poses. Being an international bimetallist is like believing in theosophy; it's so hazy and far-off it can't hurt anybody.

Exciting Caucus of THIrd Warders at the Cope: and, , BEAR AND STERNE ARE ' RETIRED A. Ximber of Other Chan sea Frem the (Secret Caucus. The Third ward today wears the lau rels as Topeka's fighting ward in Repub lican politics. The caucus held at the Copeland last evening was the noisest, most boisterous and finally the most good-natured ever held in the ward. The call for the caucus was signed by all the members of the central committee living in the ward, and at 8 o'clock when about 130 Third ward voters had assem bled in the Copeland club room, A. B. Quinton called the meeting to order. S. B. Bradford and C E." Purviance were nominated for chairman and then the fun began. There was a call for a division on the vote and the Purviance men ranged themselves on one side of the room while the Bradford adherents swarmed on the opposite side. When two tellers who were appointed comple ted their counting and announced 70 for Bradford and 45 for Purviance there was a great howl of disapproval and two addit ional tellers were appointed. There was some changing in the ranks something like a school boys game of "blackman" and when the tellers finally secured an accurate count they found Mr.Purviance had 69 votes and Mr. Bradford 54. This was declared satisfactory and Mr. Purvi ance proceeded to preside. Jack Jor don, a young colored man was elected secretary. Mr. J. D. McFarland offered the fol lowing resolution and moved its adop tion: Resolved, That it is the object of this meeting to select delegates and alter nates to be voted for at the primary elec tion to be held on Saturday next who are pledged and shall support E. N. Morrill for governor. A vote was taken and the resolution was declared adopted. Geo. H. Evans moved the appointment of a committee of five to name the dele gation. The motion was carried and Geo. H. Evans, J. T. Mitchell, W. F. Federman, W. T. McKnight and S. J. Bear were named. This committee soon reported a list of delegates which was not satisfactory to the crowd S. B. Bradford got in his work in the interest of the i'Snappers" caucus held ast week in Mayor Harrison's office. He presented the list of delegates elected at the mayor's office and moved that it be adopted as a substitute for the list presented by the committee. The war was then on without the issu ance of a proclamation. There were cries of "Kill the Star Chamber gang," "Down the Snappers." ' Everybody made all the noise they could; some cried "Adjourn to the polls." Oscar Swayze, standing on a table at the back of the room, yelled "This is a Hoch meeting; Hurrah for Hoch." Col. J. C. Gordon who had donated the use of his club room for the meeting got mad and de clared this was to be the last caucus held in his hotel, and the hobnailed shoes which were holding several able bodied Republicans ou top of the cain seated chairs were ordered on to the floor on short notice. Mr. F. P. Lindsay succeeded in yell ing loud enough to make the chairman who was three feet away, hear him, and was cheered to the echo when he de manded a fair deal. A. B. Campbell brought his ponderous voice into play and declared: "We don't want any fixers in this; let us select our delegation from the list presented by the committee but select them one by one. There are a certain lot of fellows in this ward who have been in the habit of running the caucuses, electing themselves to the county convention and then getting them selves sent to the state convention and it is time to knock these fixers out" Sim Bear yelled out: "He is kicking because his name is not on the list;" to which Campbell replied: "No I am not I don't want to be on it, but you are one of the fixers we will knock out I am here to see that you do not get on the delegation." The crowd cheered fully four or five minutes and when the chair man got their attention the vote to lav the proposition to adopt the "snappers'' ticket on the table was carried after which Mr. Campbell's proposition was adopted. C. E. Purviance, W. S. Lindsay and D. W. Mulvane were elected without oppo sition. When the name of W. E. Sterne was read Mr. Campbell moved to substitute the name of W. Littlefield of the Santa Fe law department This raised more trouble and after the voters had been divided Mr. Littlefield was elected by one vote. When the tellers finished counting they announced that Mr. Sterne had 63 votes and Mr. Littlefield 04. The secretary of the meeting, then, voted for Littlefield making it a tie, and then Chairman Purviance broke the tie by casting his vote for Littlefield, defeating Sterne, the vote then standing laterae 65 and Littlefield 6a W. T. McKnight and J. G. Samuelson were elected without opposition. When A. B. Qumton's name was read Mr. Campbell moved to substitute the name of L. G. BeaL Mr. Quinton had prior to this however, denounced the "snappers" caucus as the wrong kind of politics and his position was endorsed by his elec tion. W. F. Federman, Geo. M. Egle and J. F. Mitchell, were chosen without op position, the erowd yelling: "They -are all right." A fig-nt was made on Geo. Evans and J.F. Foresinan's nasae was of fered as a substitute, but Evans was se lected, a W. Paskell, D. C. Naylor and F. P. Lindsey, were chosen and then S. J. Bear's name was reached. When Bear's name was read he an nounced that he did not want to be a' delegate to either the county convention or the state convention, and suggested that Mr. Campbell might be sent in his place. Campbell: "No, I won't; but I nomi nate ts. B. Bradford." The vote was taken and Bradford was elected. 'The only names reported by the committee not endorse I by the caucus were those of W. E. Sterne and Sw J. Bear. The dele gation selected is as follows: DELEGATES. ALTERNATES. C E. Purviance, F. M. Bonebrake, ' Dr. W. a Lindsay, J. P. Davis, D. W. Mulvane, Howel Jones. W. Littlefield, D.

Those delegates on the ticket selected by the previous caucus and defeated last night are: W. E. Sterne a J. Bear, Charles Elliott, A. J. McCabe. T. W. Har rison, L B. Snow and Archie F. Will iams. Fourth Ward Kcpabllcani. ' A caucus of Fourth ward Republicans favorable to the nomination of Major E. N. Morrill for governor was held at the court house last evening. Frank H. Foster presided and Chas. E. Gault was secretary. There was a lack of the en thusiasm that prevailed in the Third ward caucus and while a committee was out selecting the delegation Bernard Kelly entertained the crowd with a speech. The following was the list of delegates selected: DELEGATES. ALTERNATES. A. W. Dana, Chas. O. Kimble, W. A. S. Bird, D. H. Moore, L. S. Ferry, S. P. Wade, A. S. Johnson, M. O'Brien, James Ramsey, P.

John W. Day, Theo. Orner, T. J. Anderson, Thos. Bean, C P. Bolmar, A. L. Davis, George Tincher, J. B. Larimer. sang at Hamilton hall. An Excellent Concert Bat not a. Large Enough Audience. The concert given last evening at Ham ilton hall, by Topeka's musical and elo cutionary talent, was a most enjoyable entertainment in every way. There was only a small audience present, however barely 150. This was very unfortunate, for the programme was deserving of a full halL The Arion singing society opened the entertainment with a song full of melody, "Ihe Singer's Home," by Koeler. Prof. L. Heck is the director and the society Bhowed careful training. Miss Edna Best fully sustained her ex cellent reputation as an elocutionist Her selection was "The Message," and the piano accompaniment added greatly to the effect The male quartette was down for a number, but they failed to be there. This quartette consists of Eddie Epps, Paul Torrington, Walter Noble and Chester Culver. Miss Smiley'a club swinging was very fine. She is very graceful and and an expert club swinger. She is a teacher at Bethany. The violin solo by Miss Marie Norton was very artistic She played Schar wenka's "Spanish Dance." Miss Lulu Burnham recited "The Swan Song," in a pleasing way. The Washburn college glee club then rendered a selection which was more of a novelty than a musical number. It was a descriptive railroad song. They were recalled and sang another song. The Castilian Mandolin club then play ed "La Bella Mazurka," creditably. Mrs. R. W. Stone, who has recently come to this city to reside, made her first appearance before a Topeka audience. Her solo was the most brilliant number of the programme. She sang "La Par late D'Amor," from Faust. Her voice is a rich, powerful, mezzo-soprano and shows careful training. She made a most favorable impression, and Topeka is glad to have such an accomplished artist Miss Kate Whiting's recitation of "The Bells," was very artistically rendered, as is the case always with Miss Whiting's efforts. W. H. Thomas was not down on the programme, but he came forward and sang "Old Black Joe." He appeared the second time and said: "Ladies and gen tlemen, I will now give you an imitation, of Booth, in Richard III." He began to twist himself into shape to represent Richard III, when Dr. Ham ilton's pug dog, gave a vigorous "bowwow-wow." Alany thought the noise came from Mr. Thomas in the role of Richard IIL It created quite a laugh. The Ladies' Quartette did not appear, although announced on the programme. Miss Best and Prof. W. H. Leib sang a duet, "See the Pale Moon," in an excel lent manner. Then Prof.Leib sang,"Dousrlass Tender and True," in his usual pieasing way. The Modocs closed the evening's enter tainment with their standard song: "Comrades in Arms." . LOCAL MENTION. Rev. 8. G. Rilyon who is well known among Topeka church people and who has been connected with the Methodist mission at Chihuahua, Mexican, was on May 1 taiseu with congestion of the brain and later by paralysis. He is a brother-in-law of Mrs. N. Johnson. Frances W. Bossehas brought suit in the district court for a divorce from ner husband, Robert W. Bosse. She says they were married in April, 1893, at Kan sas City, Kas., and that he deserted her in August following. Robert is now liv ing at Galena and has personal property valued at $5,000. Harrison Kelley and A. A. Stewart, of Manhattan, have written letters to the Ottawa Journal in which they decline to be considered as candidates for the Popu list nomination for governor. A First ward Republican caucus will be held this evening in the interest of Major Morrill. McKeever & Stone have taken charge of the jewelry stock of J. J. Vansteen berg for L. A.
