Waihisotos, June 1. For Kansas Fair, slightly warmer Saturday morning; variable winds. It looks like Gov. Waite would have to do all his bridle-bits wading in com mon every-day water. If the Coxey armies keep on dividing it won't be long before there will be nothing left but generals. The miners in Illinois are now living on charity, and it won't be long until they will have nothing left but faith and hope. The Democrats want lumber to come in free, so they can patch up that rickety old platform of theirs with the least ex pense. Bktwek?,' the coal miner's strike and the Democratic administration the fires of the country are having a mighty hard time to stay lit. Bill, Higoins said money he would bet. if he had He knew no any one would believe him if he were a betting man." had said, "If I Johx J. Ixgalls broke a long silence to talk about the war and the south. He is evidently aiming to get in line with the state Republicans on the live issues of the day. Judges Riner and Hallett have de cided that the United States can't inter fere at Cripple Creek. The probate court, however, has a strong case against Gov. Walte. A minister in Jersey City preached a sermon in praise of the bicycle. It is strange that he could find any good in a thing that is the came of so much crook edness in men. The Coxey army at Denver which is going to take advantage of the rise in the Platte, believes that there is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at its Hood leads on to Washington. If the Populist delegates do as they expect to do and camp in the state house yard, making a wagon yard of the capi tol grounds will be no worse than, having made a menagerie of the capitoL Senator Hill wants the senate bri bery investigating committee to hold opeu sessions. Sir. Hill believes firmly in having every bit of corruption expos ed as long as eoma one else did it. It is very evident that Thomas Brack en Reed's mind has not been idle, and that when he seized upon the silver ques tion as the real issue he couldn't help chuckling as he looked toward Ohio. If the United States has got $78,000,000 In debt in a year how many years of Dem ocratic rule would it take to bankrupt the whole country, is a problem thes olution of which would not take one out of the province of simple arithmetic. The president of one of the miners' unions in Pennsylvania doesn't think the governor has any right to ordar them not to riot. It is hardly strange that he should think so, there never have been offenders that believed in penitentiaries either. The senate has adopted a resolution declaring that the United States will not interfere any further in the affairs of Hawaii. If the senators will let this end the whole matter, and not so much as mention the name again, the public will be profoundly grateful. Jeff Hudson, who was going to apply for a writ of habeas corpus for the im prisoned Coxeyltea, has been got ahead of by Carl Browne, who was tired of waiting, applying for it himself. Hudson hasn't been long In congress but he learned the congressional way of doing things, very quickly. Tom Reed says he wouldn't turn the other cheek to Englacd like the Demo crats have done, but would smite them back. Tom always was a naughty boy and thia looks like, while the little Dem ocratic boys were at Sunday school learn ing the golden rule and "love thy neigh bor as thyself," he was off fishing or blacking some one's eye for calling him name. DOS'T DODGE WOMAX SUFFRAGE. At the polls next November the peo ple of Kansas will be called upon to .de cide the most momentous question that has been before them since the passage of the prohibitory amendment in 1830. It ia the question of whether or not the right of suffrage shall be extended to a large and intelligent body of citizens to whom it is now almost wholly denied. It is possible that the adoption of the equal suffrage amendment will be of far reaching consequence, not only to the politics of the state, but to the laws and constitution itself. That the amendment will be adopted there is little doubt A majority of the people of moat political faiths . favor it. The opposition comes mostly from that class of voters who have for years hugged to their breasts the delusion that some time the prohibi tory law would be repealed. They look upon the enfranchisement of woman as the death blow to this hope. Whether or not this fear is well founded can not be fully determined until the experiment is made. The friends of the amendment, however, believe that they can trust the women of Kansas to vote for the state's best interests in any event. Many oppo nents of the measure acknowledge its justice, but are like a prominent Demo crat who was heard to remark a few days ago: "Oh yes, I know there is no argument against it, but I am opposed to it all the same." What will be the attitude of the politi cal parties on this question when they assemble in state convention and formu late a platform of principles on which they will go before the people and ask their suffrage? The Democratic party, in view of its past record, which has ever been one of opposition to every thing like progress, can be safely de pended upon to oppose equal suffrage in its platform. The Populists are in a better position to ignore the question than any other party because they were the means of bringing it before the peo ple and have that much already to their credit. But dare they do it? A large majority of the party unques tionably favors an endorsement of the amendment in the platform. The fusion element which forms a small but vigor ous minority, will oppose it because they are always ready to sacrifice principle or anything or anybody to catch the Democratic vote. The party's position, therefore, will de pend largely upon which element is in control of the convention. The un doubted fact, that the women of Kansas will hold in grateful remembrance the party that espouses their cause, if it should stand alone in such action, may, however, overcome the opposition of the fuslvmists. What will the Republican party do re garding this question? When the women of the equal suffrage association go be fore the Republican convention and in the name of the women of the entire state, ask for an endorsement of the amendment which means so much to them, what reply will be made them? What will the grand old Republican party, the party of progress, the party of justice and equality, the party of freedom, say to the women of the equal suffrage association and to their sisters of the W. C. T. U., who have stood -loyally by the party on account of ita attitude on that other great reform the prohibition of the liquor traf fic, and to the women of the churches who have been true to it for the same reason? Will they say, ''we are engaged in redeeming Kansas, and this amend ment is not an issue, and besides we don't know what the other fellows are going to do, and thus become the only party in the state that does not take a stand for or against a measure of such vital importance to the whole people. The amendment should be endorsed not only because it is right and just but because it is good policy. The few votes which might be lost this year on account of such action, would be a small matter when compared with the number that would be lost two years from now. For as surely as the Republican convention fails to endorse the amendment so surely will the Populist convention profit by the mistake. It is scarcely possible that the handful of voters composing the Democratic party will be allowed to dic tate a polifcy to both the great political parties of the state at the same time. A party can make no greater confession of weakness than to dodge an issue. Its following is prone to lose faith in it. The Republican party of Kansas has never been a dodger. Let us not begin this year. I he masses of the party are known to favor the amendment. Let us say so openly and gain by such action. Editor Bristow of the Salina Repub lican, thinks it wouldn't be treating the members of the party who were opposed to it right to put woman suffrage in the platform. For the same reason the party ought to take no action on the silver question and the tariff. Or what is more important yet the party should not "re affirm" and "point with pride" in the platform because there are some men in the party who are opposed to reiteration, and some indeed have no arms or fingers to point witn.

SUCCESSORS TO WICCIN, CROSBY & ATYRAGTBOIrclS. EPJ TORIuO THE ICHTHYOLOGISTS. Men Who Make Two Fishes Grow Whers Kone Grew Before. . The recent convention of the Amer ican Fisheries society in Philadelphia was of more than ordinary importance to the people at large. It was not mere ly a gathering of anglers to discuss the fisheries question from a sportsman's standpoint, but a meeting of the leading authorities in ichthyology, fish cultur ists and fish commissioners from all over the United States to consider the best methods of propagating fish for the in crease of the food supply. The good acccomplished by this or ganization is very great and the possi bilities of its future incalculable. As a body and as individuals its members have formulated and secured the passage of beneficent laws for the protection of fishes and fisheries. But for them it is entirely probable that the rivers and lakes east of the Mississippi would to day be entirely depopulated of their fin ny inhabitants, and even in the waters of the more sparsely settled west the same danger was not unknown. Before the formation of the American Fisheries society laws for fish protection were few and practically unenforced. The whitefish industry of the great lakes was practically abandoned, and the shad fisheries of the eastern coast had become almost worthless. Now, owing to the untiring and unselfish work of the vari ous fish commissions and to the great skill which they have acquired in the artificial propagation of almost every species of fish, the lakes, rivers and smaller streams aro becoming once more fairly well inhabited. , From the hatcheries of Pennsylvania alone within the past three months 30, 000,000 whitefish and 80,000,000 pike have been deposited in Lake Erie, and over 4, 000, 000 of the different varieties of trout have been planted in the differ- PRESIDENT W. L. MAT. ent streams of the state, while untold millions of shad fry have been set afloat in the Delaware and Susquehanna. New York, Michigan, Wisconsin and many other states have similar stories to tell, and since fish culturists have learned to preserve fully 90 per cent more young fish than nature can in its ordinary course the food fish supply of the future is in no danger of curtailment. The officers elected by the society foi t'ie ensuing year are: President, W. L. May, Nebraska; vice president, R. O. Sweeny, Minnesota; treasurer, Frank J. Amsden, New York; recording secre tary, Edward P. Doyle; corresponding secretary, Dr. J. A. Henshall, Ohio; ex ecutive committee, IL H. Cary, Georgia; L. D. Huntingdon, New York; Henry C. Ford, Pennsylvania; Calvert Speerchy, Wisconsin; Charles F. Chamberlayne, Massachusetts; Hoyt Post, Michigan. Read the "Wants." Many of them are as interesting as news items.

Cox Honored by His Com. radea of the Loyal Legion. The recent announcement from Cin cinnati that ex-President Harrison had been succeeded as commander of the Loyal Legion of Ohio by "GeneralJacob D. Cox, dean of the Cincinnati Law school, "was more significant perhaps to residents of that city and its vicinity than to people elsewhere who had not GENERAL JACOB D. COX. '. special information in relation to the gentleman therein alluded to. Many will doubtless be surprised to learn that the man whose identity is thus modest ly set forth is none other than Jacob Dolson Cox, who was President Grant's first secretary of the interior and had been governor of Ohio, who made a brilliant reputation as a soldier in the civil war, and whose latest prominence in national affairs had been gained as a member of the Forty fifth congress. As long ago as 1859 General Cox had gained sufficient reputation to be elected to the Ohio senate on the Republican ticket, and he remained a member of that body until the outbreak of the war, when he was commissioned a brigadier general and ordered to West Virginia to fight under Rosecrans. He was promoted major general m 1862, served under Sherman in the Atlanta campaign in 1864 and commanded a division at the battle of Nashville. He was governor of Ohio in 1860 and 1867 and might have had a second term if he had not an tagonized his party by taking strong ground against negro suffrage and in dorsing the policy of President Andrew J ohnson. After President Grant's inauguration in 1869 General Cox was appointed sec retary of the interior, but he resigned at the close of the following year and went to Cincinnati to practice law. In 1873 he accepted the presidency of the Wabash railroad, holding the position until he was elected to congress in 1876. Since his retirement from congress he has been contented to pursue the even tenor of his way as a private citizen, antl the public at large has heard but little of him, though he has made occasional pa triotic orations for his townsmen and has added greatly to his reputation as a lawyer and jurist of exceptional ability. .General Cox was born in Montreal Oct. 27, 1828. His parents were natives of the United States and returned to New York city soon after his birth. There he attended the public schools until the family removed to Ohio, when he entered Oberlin college, from which he graduated in 1851, beginning the practice of law the following year at Warren, whence seven years later he went to the state senate.
