May 11. Forecast till 8 p. m. Saturday: For Kansas Fair; warmer in southern portion tonight; outwesterly winds. Whatever may be thought of the nerve of the Colorado industrial army it will be admitted that it had its back-up. Congressman O'Neill probably thought that as he was taking the place of Mr. Joy the proper thing to do was to get jolly. It seems a pity there are so many men hunting work in the country when they might come to Topeka and work on the woolen mill. From the number of fires in Topeka last night it would appear that Secretary of Stte Osborn was not waiting for the fall election. "General" Sanders may not have been a warrior bold very long but he learned very quickly that the better part of valor is discretion. Senator Mills made a long speech denouncing the senate amendments to the Wilson bill, and then like a good Democrat said: "I'll vote for it." If the woman suffragists are going to demand their right to play base ball they will have to give up their fondness for yellow if they expect success. A young man died in Lawrence with swelling in the legs. This is considered a peculiar case there, as the swelling of the other extremitv is quite a common affliction. Congressman O'Neill of Missouri got drunk and struck an inoffensive man on the head when his back was turned, but then that was all right as long as he kept off the grass. If the Coxey movement is the result of paternalism, as Senator Gordon of Georgia says, what does he think would be the result if Coxey's ideas which are the extreme of paternalism were adopted? Jcdok Bashork of Pratt who denies that he sent an editor to jail for contempt because he criticised his decisions is wiser in his day and generation than some men who occupy higher positions on the bench. The completion of a monument to Mary Washington sixty-four years after the idea was first broached leaves room to hope that sometime in the twentieth century New York may build one to General Grant The more changes the senate makes in the tariff bill the more Congressman Wilson's health improves. Perhaps after all he wouldn't be sorry if they would change the name too and relieve him of all responsibility. An original editorial writer says that Kelly's army was launched on the "rag ing Mississippi at Des Moines." There seems to be an embryo Napoleon in this country, who will make over its map for it, as Bonaparte did for Europe, As an exemplifler of the Fabian pol icy of delay Governor Lewelling is un excelled, lie was bound the train stealers shouldn't interfere with his gubernatorial boom if he had to keep the wires hot asking questions. The poor Indian is apparently keep ing abreast of the civilized white man, In spite of all the ignominy heaped upon him. The report comes that the national ireasury of the Chickasaw nation is empty, and the schools will have to sus pend for want of funds. In its search for presidential timber the Democratic party should not neglect to investigate this fertile field. That broad culture and spirit of liber ality so characteristic of Boston and its environs have constrained the authori ties of Harvard college to refuse the use of any of the college rooms to the Stu dents' Republican club. The Republi can students, who of course cannot know everything like the Harvard faculty, are mad at this. Perhaps they don't deserve to bo burned like the Salem witches, but the heresy of being Republicans will no doabt receive some suitable punishment, POPULIST POLITICS. The state campaign has actively com menced, so far as the Populists are con cerned. Not a day passes but that the mails are filled with tracts and documents to renew the failing faith of the Popu llstic converts. A part of Labor Com missioner Todd's report will be used to prove to the farmers that farming doesn't pay and that the fault lies in vicious leg- An extract has been culled from Secretarv 'Coburn's last quarterly agricultural report, the address of Hon. Daniel W. Needham of Boston, on the farming industry, which takes a dark view of the farmer's lot These will be sent out in addition to the many pamph lets issued under direction of the state central committee. The renomination of Governor Lew elling now seems to be a foregone con clusion and the state officers argue that this will carry with it the entire old ticket with possibly one or two excep tions. One of the exceptions is Secre tary of State Osborn. The prevailing sentiment is that it will not be policy to encumber the ticket with his name Os born talks too much and the state ad ministration is very much afraid of his pyrotechhical ebullitions. It was hoped he would go into the race for congress in the Sixth district but it la quietly hinted that he has aban doned that idea and the crowd is figur ing how he can best be let down grace fully. A prominent candidate against Osborn is J. W. Amos of Smith Center who is now county superintendent of public instruction. Amos is a very popular man in his own county and stands a good chance of being nominated. Another man who will probably be sacrificed for the good of the party is Lieutenant Governor Percy F. Daniels. Some time ago a scheme was hatched to turn him down. The plan was to ap pease the Democrats by placing the name of Charles Robinson on the ticket for second place. To this end, the gossip is, he was invited by Governor Lewelling to appear on behalf of the petitioners in the freight rale case before the railroad commissioners. Robinson was not radi cal enough and talked altogether too peaceably to make an im pression on the Populist voters. There is also talk that he could not poll the entire Democratic vote on account of his long service in po litical life. The plan of making Robinson lieuten ant governor went further. It was or iginally intended as a move to gratify both the ambition of Lewelling and Rob inson. Gov. Lewelling would like to be John Martin's successor in the United States senate while it has long been ex Governor Robinson's fondest hope to again sit in the executive chair. So it was planned that if the state ticket and the legislature be elected, Lewelling is to be elected United States senator re signing the office of governor. This would make Robinson his successor and governor of Kansas. Of course this is Populist gossip and is given for what it is worth. A COXEYITE CONQUEST. From the St. Louis Republic There have been two Coxey armies in Washington. One struggled across the mountains, camped on the outskirts of the capital, made a farcical parade along Pennsylva nia avenue, and went back to camp to wait while its leaders were tried for tramping on the grass. That army will not succeed in increas ing the taxation of the people to provide easy jobs for a clasi of individuals. Much better has the other army fared. It has kept off the grass, but has train- tied the shape out of the tariff bilL It could employ senators and congressmen, could extend its long arm into the finance committee's work, could threaten with the votes of immigrant labor it controls, could set champagne to flowing like wat er, and could use the machinery of tho lobby every hour in the day. One kind of paternalism is playing out because it has not pull enough to succeed. The other kind has scored an important preliminary success, because it had pull enough to own a whole politi cal party and to seduce several senators from the Democratic side. For every million, the tariff gives to the government it gives at least four to private interests. The amendments aro capable of producing $100,000,000 easily for the Coxey army who forced them on the committee. Every dollar is taken from the earnings of the masses. Many of the dollars go to trusts, which already make profits by the million. The agri cultural South and West get next to co compensation for this sacrifice. Coxeyism fails when it goes afoot, and succeeds when it rides in Pullmans. Baknet Sheridan, the Democratic ed itor of the Paola Spirit, says it is the duty of the Democrats of Kansas to hold the balance of power in the next legislature and elect a United States senator. He says: "We are for lion. John Martin for United States senator and firmly believe that the only way or plan by which he can be re-elected is for the Democrats to elect enough straight Democrats to the house to hold the balance of power in the legislature next winter. If Populists get a majority they will kick him over board for one of their own party and if Republicans have a majority they will do the same. But let there be enough Dem ocrats to turn the scale and thev can dictate the election. We are for sending Democrat to the United States senate for six years whether by Populist or Re publican votes." Creates health, creates strength, cre ates vigor: De Witt's Sarsapariila.

Those who went out, asserted that the entire force of 4,3l0 would be on a strike before night Trouble has been brewing for some time, the men demanding the restoration of a 33 la per cen. cut in the wages made last year.

Vice President Wickes and the other officers the of company wera at the works today investigating charges made by the employes' committee, and they were entirely unprepared for the sudden seriousness the situation had assumed. whole faIiilyIiurdered Missouri Farmer Waylaid and Killed Be causa lie Knew Too Much.

The murderers are arrested here" and a lynch ing will probably occur soon. Meeks and his family lived at Milan and were coming here yesterday to visit relatives. They were waylaid. The cause of the crime is said to lie in the fact that Meeks was a damaging witness in a big cattle case last September.

Neither were able to give bond when General Little left. GAVE BIG "TIP" POISON. Aa'h.rltlat of Central Park Trying: to Destroy the Murderous Elephant. New York, May tL Elephant Tip was unquestionably a great sinner in his day, but he is being greatly sinned against in his taking off. Park Commis sioners Clausen, Strauss and Bell, accom panied by Superintendent Smith and Secretary Burn, arrived at Central Park at 6 o'clock in company with Drs. Hun tington, Allen and Spitska. At 6:ot they gave Tip a carrot, in a cavity of which were two ounces of cyanide of po tassium. The elephant swallowed it and then ejected it. Afterwards he was given an apple with a similar dose, which he swallowed. Another dose and a piece of bread charged charged with cynide of potassium he refused to touch. At 7:02 Old Tip began to vomit, and continued retching for half an hour. His legs were beginning to wobble a little, but the only poison he had really swallowed so far was that contained in an apple. The commissioners are evidently weary of the job, and the doctors are in despair of ending the elephant's career by the means adopted. I ndeed, Dr. Spitska had advised against the resort to cynide of potassium, and expressed doubt of its result. DENOUNCED THE A. P. A. RATE WAR GROW S BITTER.

President of Ancient Order Hibernians Calls It un-American. Omaha, Neb., May 11. The first busi ness before the ancient order Hibernians convention today was the report of the committee on revision of legislation, after which national delegate read his annual address. He urged the establish ment of Hibernian labor bureaus in every city of the country is urged. After urging that the stars and stripes be raised over Catholic schools, President Wilhe said: "It is our duty to ourselves, to our children and to our children's children to stand up like manly men and combat this modern know-nothingism, which is spreading over the land- in the guise of an organization called the A. P. A. In my judgment, brejthern, it is our duty to fight this un-American organ and its professed principles with every weapon, with which American freemen should fight the battle of right and justice as against the accursed spirit of bigotry and intolerance, which should find no place under free institutions, but which unfortunately runs riot through our country at the present time." HE REMEMBERED. County Attorney H. C. Safford is sick at his home in North Topeka. Full particulars of tomorrow's Repub lican primaries will be found on the sec ond page. The money taken in the collection at the suffrage convention at Hamilton hall will be turned into the state cam paign fund and will not be used by the local association. Miss M. D.

The Strapping- Toons; Man From Ypsilanti iiad frot Forgotten Him. A strapping young man, with a cold look In hia eye and a brand new clothes wringer resting on bis knee, sat m the waiting room of the Third Street depot waiting for his train. In Razing about his eyes rested on a certain man, and he gave a sudden start. He rose to his feet and started again. Then he deposited his clothes wringer on the set tee and walked over to a flashily dressed man about 40 years old whom any one would have spotted as a fakir and asked: "Don't you travel around with tooth pow der?" "No, sir!" was the sharp reply. "Wasn't you In Ypsilanti last fall?" "No, sirl" "Yes, you was, and I'll bet on it. You are the same durned feller, and I know it! "Sir! What does this mean?" demanded the other. "It means that I was in Ypsilanti last fall ana bought a box of your tooth powder. You changed a $5 bill, and darn my hide if you didn't hornswaggle me out of $1!" "Sir!" "2o use, old fellow! I knowed ye the micit 1 sot eyes on ye. Same big diamond pin same necktie same nose humped up in the middle like a circus camel! I want that dollar!" "This is outrageous! I'll call a police man" shouted the fakir. , "Call and be durned to ye, but I'll lick ye first! You either come down with that dol lar, or I'll wallop ye till ye can't holler!" "Look here," replied the other in much milder tones, "you are mistaken. It was my co u Bin who was in Ypsilanti. He is dead now." "Then I'll take it out of you!" "He is dead, as I remarked, and rathei than have any blot resting on his fair es cutcheon I will pay you the dollar." "That's all right. I don't know nuthin about 'scutcheons, but I've got to have that dollar or pull hair. I've bin lookin for your humpbacked nose all over the face of the earth, and I've laid awake nights thinkin how I'd made ye holler like an. Injun if I got my paws on ye." He was given a dollar, and the fakir dis appeared at once, and the young man ex plained to those about him: 'I'm almost sorry be gave up so soon. I just achin clean down to my toes to lick him all over a 40 acre lot." Detroit Free Pre. Try Phillips mineral water It is con sidered the finest water for the stomach. i W. Eighth avenue. Try it.
