Washington, May 25. Forecast till 8 p. m. Saturday: For Kansas Fair; warmer: variable winds. Pkof. Pkeservkd Smith seems to be in a pickle. Babt Hutu deserves the sympathy of the entire country. She is very unfortu nate in her father. The sugar trust paid $500,000 for the Democratic party. Doesn't it think the price was a little high? The earthquake in Missouri was simp ly the world laughing at the Democratic platform in that state. Oh, lr. McCasey, your virtues must be never so hue. To lie worth half a column notice. At the rale ot tweuty a line. Dr. McCasey must be making- a good thing out of his business to be able to ad vertise himself so extensively. If the Populist administration had a little longer to stay in office they would probably all have to be removed by the courts. Scandai.ois as selling themselves to the sugar men, was the Democratic party cannot be accused of going back on the bargain. Sam Jones says, "I believe in old Cleveland." For that matter, according to his creed, Mr. Jones believes in the Old Harry. The disclosures male by the Buttz in vestigation will have a tendency to make Billy Buchan redouble his efforts to get "'nto congress. The state board of charities la as re luctant to investigate the abuses at the asylum as the senate was to take hold of the sugar fraud investigation. Secretary Carlisle apparently found time from his pleasant duty of issuing bonds, to draft a schedule of the tariff bill to protect the sugar trust. No one can be found willing to accept the task of organizing the French min istry. This is the first this country had heard of the Democratic party being in power there. Now that Superintendent McCasey has spread his own virtues far and wide by means of a paid advertisement what does the medical profession think of that for a code of ethics? Congressman Warmer says nothing can be done with the trusts, they are so shrewd in evading the law. Almost anyone could outwit their enemy if they had an Olney in his camp. Thk state university la going to send an expedition to the bad lands. They want to have things prepared for the coming of the rest of the country in case the Wilson bill should pass. The management of the state peniten tiary is the latost Populist outfit to come under the ban. Other institutions under like control had better put their appli cations in early to avoid the rush. Popclst officials don't seem to think the asylum affairs need investigating but Dr. McCasey recognizes the danger well enough to have a defense of himself in serted in newspapers at so much per line. Gov. Lewellino says the charges in the Reform school investigation were not sustained. Such reason will pass in a world where two and two make five and where buildings are supported by sunbeams, but nowhere else. If the Republican party expects to win in this state this year it will have to declare for something real, definite and earnest. The action of the Methodist preachers of the Topeka district is a fair warning of what will happen if the plat form la made up of ill-disguised strad dles and transparently disingenuous gen eralities. dispatch from New York says we shouldn't be alarmed at the exportation of gold and the depletion of the treasury gold reserve. The law provides how ever that the gold reserve shall be $100, 000,000. Perhaps if the rest of the country didn't have any more regard for law than New York does, it wouldn't care. IT HAS ITS MISSION. - Every Corey army In the country ia a living, moving protest against the pres ent national administration. It is an ob ject lesson that is destroying the Demo cratic party. Like Chancellor Saow'a in fected chinch bugs, wherever they go they scatter the seeds of political death among the Democrats. Yet, in spite of this fact, we find a lot of foolish Repub lican editors particularly in the rural dis tricts of Kansas, who whoop and hop around and toss their arms in an effort to stop the movement as if it were their ox that is being gored, and their adminis tration that is being brought into shame and disgrace by such a movement. Gen tlemen, don't get excited. Let the Coxey movement continue a little longer, and there won't be fifty Democratic congress men elected to the next congress. Re publicans do not need to endorse Coxey or Coxeyism. Let the disease run its course, of itself. It will bring death to the Democratic party, an institution that has deserved to die for the last 35. years. Now, that it is down and on its back, why seek to stay the arm that is plunging' the knife into its vitals? Don't be foolish and get warmed up over something that is building a royal road for the Republi can party to walk into power. Let Cox eyism alone; it will die out, but not be fore its mission is performed, and its mis sion is a good one. Thk mayor of Osage City is in favor of woman suffrage; tumultuously so, one would say, to read his welcoming ad dress to the suffrage speakers at the rally there. A part of his remarks were as follows: "Woman has shaped aud moulded the destiny of men ' aud nations for over eighteen hundred years, and through her influence and untiring devotion she has raised man from a low estate to ascend the heights of fame till on yon pedestal he aits, the proudest of God's handiwork, and bows in just recognition to the intuition and self-sacrifice of noble women, and yet the halo of her sphere has widened from abject servitude and bondage through the flowery paths of literature, art and learning." The mayor also said: "Then in after years on the sunset shore of a long and useful life almost ended, nodding near eternity's ebbing sands, that being dreams of the sweet lullabies his mother sang and the vivid recollections of the past make him real ize now more forcibly than ever before the lovely graces of womanhood and her influences over the destiny of man." The mayor perorates as follows: "When public indignation shall be measured by true worth and follies and mistakes are not so easily forgotten. When women cease to condescend to men and men aspire to the higher plane of feminine influence. When as the earth speeds on rnd man grows stronger at each round and drifts on to a full real ization of what he should be. When he takes into his wise counsel her, who of all others, should be most dear. When io contides fully to her the secret re cesses of his heart. Then the world will grow better, the future brighter; then governments will dare to do right. Then nations will vie with each other in bury ing forever man's inhumanity to man. Then each will walk through higher paths and live for themselves, for each other and the world at large. Then the great cause for which these speakers who are with us tonight have sacrificed so much and worked so long with unre mitting toil will have been won. Then women will carry the elective franchise from the scoffs and jeers of men up to the becoming dignity and graces of wo manhood. Then mankind the race will be brother to mankind. Then from the brain of the perfect thinker will spring the calm and honest sentiment which will give equal justice to all. Then woman will truly be the 'brightest jewel in nature's diadem.' Then she will retain in her loveliness the proud po sition on the golden heights of purity the peer of man." Now that miners and mechanics are starving in the west, and mechanics and miners are starving in the east, the news comes to us day by day that congress is "having fun" with appropriation bills and drawing its salary. The time has come when this exalted congressional contempt for the people who should rule should be humbled, and the signs point toward its speedy realization. Completed . It was in a Latin class, and a dull boy wai wrestling with the sentence, "Rex fugit," which, with a painful slowness of emphasis, he bad rendered, "The kins; flees." "But in wliat other tense can the verb fugit be found?" asked the teacher. A long scT4tchinsf of the head and a final answer of "perfect," owing to a whispered prompting. "And how would you translate it then?" "Dnnno." . "Why, pnt a 'has' in it." Again the tardy emphasis drawled out: "The king has fleas." Waterbury Amer ican. The Hero of the Holocaust. MM r.

THE HERO OF SAMOA. e Tsfs't Services as at- Ltfe Save During- the etont at Apia. The prevalent discussion of " the rela tions of the United States government With tha affairs of the Samoan islands will lend additional inter est tp the visit of Senmann Taf a to this country. Ta fa is the greatest of all South Sea islanders from an American point of view. He is the chief - -who worked so nobly and heroically to SEXTMANCT TAF A. save the lives of our sailors during the big Btorm in Apia harbor when the Trenton and Vandalia were wrecked. The vessels were being torn by the waves, and the angry seas were running high. The sailors who were not washed overboard jumped for their lives. On shore were gathered thousands, and all seemed powerless to aid Suddenly the great chief addressed a crowd of his followers and then plunged into the seething waters. Native after native followed him, and on and on he swam till he reached the Trenton. A native grasped him around the body, and he in turn was grasped by another until a human bridge was formed from the ship to the shore. Sailor after sailor was passed along that bridge, and many lives were saved. Seumanu Tafa clung to his moorings with indomitable cour age until every castaway was landed; then the natives followed him to the shore. The United States government re warded the gallant ation of the Samoan chief by presenting him with a medal and a whaleboat, but the natural gen erosity of the American people will doubtless prompt them to some further and more adequate recognition of his heroism. This they will have plenty of opportunities to do, if it suits them, by helping the chief to realize the object of his journey hither, which is a noble one. Though one of the greatest of Samoa's warriors, Seumanu Taf a is very zealous in the cause of the Christian re ligion. With the assistance of others, he has partly constructed a 'splendid church in Apia, between $7,000 and $8, 000 having already been spent upon it. His object in coming to America is to give a series of lectures to raise money to complete the building. His lectures will be delivered in churches, where no admission will be charged, the money being raised by collection. Let Ameri cans see to it that the responses are gen erous. PERUVIAN POLITICS. Like Peruvian Bark. It Is Rather Bitter. The New President. In the land of the Ineas, that roman tic region which is associated in the American mind with the pungent Peru vian bark and the succulent Lima bean, they have been holding another election, and in spite of a vigorous op position it has resulted in the choice of General Andres Avelino Caceres to fill the office of president for a second time. He was elected to the presidency in 1886 and filled the office for the full term, though he found it a difficult task to ad minister the affairs of the country, dis ordered as they were by the disastrous termination of the war with Chile. His alleged subserviency to foreign in fluences hurt him with the people, and the present congress did its best to pre vent his re-election. General Caceres has a proud record as a soldier. He got a sublieutenancy at the age of 16 and steadily won promo tion for gallant conduct on the field. For a year he was military attache. 4 ,-C5ss j? general, caceres. while still young, to the Peruvian lega tion at Paris and traveled considerably over Europe. He was second vice presi dent in 1881 and was re-elected to that office by congress in 1883, and, as stated above, to the presidency in 1886, in which office he was succeeded by Colo nel Bermudez, recently deceased. When President Bermudez, who was first vice president under Caceres, died last March, and First Vice President Del Solar ran away. Second Vice Presi dent Borgono took the reins of govern ment, but it was said that Caceres was the real director. It was even reported that he was dictator. He was a candi date for president, had the army behind him, and thus doubly intrenched his election is no surprise. But General Pierola, who has been president and an intrepid soldier, too, and who was also a candidate at this election, set np a government of his own in southern Peru, with First Vice Presi dent Del Solar as figurehead and him self as premier. It was announced that he would await the result of the elec tion before deciding . upon his course thereafter, which may mean revolution. Peru has some important questions to settle immediately with Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia, and it would be wise for her toconsetve the national strength in Bte&d of writing it in internal dissen sion. It is to be hoped that - General Canevaro, the Peruvian minister at Washington, who has resigned to go home and ran for senator, will use hia great influence in the interests of har mony and ueaoe- - Including very, pretty and desirable all -in Checks and plain fabrics, worth 60c. worth.
