Forecast un til 8 p. m., Saturlay: For K-insas Fair, warmer, northeasterly winds, becoming southerly. Thi conferrees report fair progress. This is truly unexpected tut gratifying. Is hla race for congreia Budd Doble will doubtless point with pride to the record of Nancy Hanks. , This time Chicago's tire was not at the World'3 fair grounds perhaps there is nothing niare left there to burn. Faith, hope and charity may have been factors ia Senator Kelly's flop to the Pops, but the greatest of those is the board of charities. The statement that Cosario U3ed to figure iu street parades beause of his beauty, is apt to be receive I with several grains of allowance. If the trial of the assassin Cesario should not prove quite as spicy as ex pected the blatue must be placed on the judge's blue pencil. The indorsement of Cleveland by Iowa Democrats is only oae of many thiugs that show how littla they expect from this year's election. The report of the senate bribery com mittee is just what might have been ex pected when a body of uneu are delegat ed to investigate themselves. Bcdd DiiHLE shouldn't estimate too lightly his Populist opuoneat in the cam paign for congress. He has driven in too many races not to knew how much wind counts. When Congressman Lafe Pence comes to help Jerry Simpson in his campaign be should bo asked to explain why, if congress is such a nice place, he doesn't want to go back again. The disturbance of the tomb of An drew Jackson was probably only that helpless old man turning over in his grave at Borne of the references to him lu recent Democratic platftrms. Congress max Bryan has become the editor of a newspaper to boom himself for the senatorship. Until the campaign is over the people will naturally read seme other paper for the nsws. If the Populists of this state needed any fxample of thorough whitewashing executed in bold, masterful strokes they would need only take the joo just fin ished by the senate committee. It would take only about one mere Democratic convention, indorsing this adaiiuistratijn as wise and patriotic and the exemplification of Democratic prin ciples, tocause a big upheaval at Thomas Jefferson's grave. Senatob. Qcat with the calmest as surance admitted that he dealt ia sugar stocks and didn't expect to stop, o of course he was ignored In the bribery committee report. It was opposed to ieaatorial courtesy. Representatives of the sugar trust visited senators for the purpose of influ encing legislation, the bill was changed Just as they would have it changed, but Jh,j senators say they were not actuated by improper motives, and the senators are honorable men. Ths senate committee deprecates the "importunity and pressur? brought to bear on congress" as tending to create a "belief ia the public mini in the exist ence of corrupt politics." Poor, inno cent lambs, let the dangerous wolf Ioflu i?..ce be removed at once. Mayor Pino Kfc.E of Detroit has bolted the Republican party because the meth od used to nominate Goveraor Rich were too corrupt. Mr. Piagree should have made known his desire to be the candi date for governor sooner and perhaps he would have received more consideration. NOT long ago Secretary Gresham sent tli blundering message to Japan giving B3 an excuse our large interests in Corea and China. Now tn s country s elected as a protector of Chinese citi strjs in Japan and Japanese citizens in Ciina because of Its absolute impartiality ac i disinterestedness. Truly Mr. Gres Lisa's acateaafia of visioa is marvelous. !CHE PEEATIIBIS PAID. THEY SECURE GREATER SPEFT IN UNCLE SAM'S NEW CRUISERS. The Minneapolis, the Fastest Cruiser A font, Recently Earned a lJonnaof S414.60O F01 Her Builders How an F.tra Qnartei Knot May Savo t tie Ooveriiuuent Million. It costs Uncle Sam many a barrel ot money to possess the fastest crnicrs and commerce destroyers on the seas; but, although they come hih, he feels that he must have 'em. When it was an nounced recently that the new 23. 073 knot cruiser Minnc-tipolis, the fastest warship afloat, had, by developing speed far beyond the contract stipulation, earned a premium for her builders of 414,600; which would increase her cost from $2,090,000 to $3, 1 04, 00 J, many persons doubtless wondered why the government should pay very well f jr a ship and then donate ever $400,000 to her builders because they had turned out a good job. The question is ona that is easily answered. Our commerce de.-troyers are built more for sweeping the merchant vessels of aa enemy from the sea than fordoing any great amount of fighting, and on the principle that he who fights and runs away will Jive to fight another day the faster the cruisers ere the better they will bs able to run away when an enemy cf too heavy caliber looms up in pursuit on tha horizon. In such an emergency the fZO, 0C0 that has been paid iVr an extra quarter of a knot of speed tuny result in saving to tho country a 3,000C0u ship. An other view of the situation is that, nj matter what merchant vessel cr cruiser of equal fighting ability the commerce tiustiuyer may pursue, she id ecre to fv A :,V1 . THE CRUISER MnrXIAPOLia. overhaul tho valuable prey. During the Revolutiou and the war of 1812 supe rior speed on the part of our war ves sels was a great factor in their success. In the first year of the war for Amer ican independence the Yankee wnrship Providence, under the command of gal lant John Paul Jones, time and again escaped capture by her ability to outsail the pursuing British frigates. Good sailing also enabled the Reprisal to escape a British ship of line and con tinue her depredations along the English coast in 1777, and superior speed alono allowed the Lexington, Surprise an i Re venge to remain in English waters and sweep away the enemy's commerce in that memorable conflict. During the war of 1813 the United States navy of barely 17 efficient ships was pitted against 1,000 vessels of the British, and yet by superior speed stxh famous Yankee cruisers as the Presi dent, Essex, Chesapeake, Wasp, Pea cock, Enterprise, Siren and Adams scoured the seas where Britannia was supposed to rule and inflicted unprece dented loss upon the king's commerce. In one cruise the Adams was chased five times by British frigates of superior armament and at one titae remained within gnnshot for 40 hours before the succeeded in getting away. How valu able then was even an extra quarter of a knot of speed ! In 1815 the Hornet was chased for 72 hours by the 74 gun ship of line Cornwal lis. Commander Diddle lightened ship by throwing overboard arms, powder and about every movable thing aboard, but he finally succeeded in eluding his big pursuer. At another time the Re prisal escaped by sawing away her bul warks and throwing overboard her gnus and shot. She at once refitted and con tinued her career of destruction. Run ning away, however, was not all c ur gallant ships did, fcr during the first seven months of the war of 1812 they captured over 00 British armed vessels, 2o0 merchantmen and 8,000 piisoners. The premium and penalty system, which has given the navy suoh excel lent ships, was introduced by Secretary Whitney. Since then 17 vessels have earned in premiums the big sum of $2, 204,586, according to the New York Snn, and vessels awaiting trial will increase the sum to an even 3, G00.0C0. Among the 10 contract ships remaining to be tried is the torpedo boat Ericsson, which must show a speed of 24 knots. She will receive $2,500 for every quar ter knot she makes above 24, and if she exceeds 23 knots $3,500 per quarter be yond that point. She will probably dis place the .Minneapolis as the navy's fastest ship. The ram Katadin will re ceive $15,000 for each quarter knot be yond the contract stipulation of 17 knots, and the gnr.boc.ts Penguin, Al batross and Porpoise are to get $;0,0J0 for a full knot in excess of the contract speed. The battleships Indiana, Oregon and Massachusetts, built f or fighting and not running away, will receive $25,0 30 per quarter knot above 15 knots. The gunboat Castine earned $50, 000 pre mium and the ilacl.ias and Barton ft $ 45, 000 each. In tho case of all these ships similar deductions are made pro vided they fail to develop contract Bpeed. The Minneapolis is 412 fett long, 53 feet beam, 22 feet 6 y2 inches draft and displaces 7. 350 tons. Sh3 can carry 2,200 tons of coaL Her armament con sists of one 8 inch 40 caliber riile, two 6 inch, eight 4 inch, eight six pounders, t aer one pounders &ad four jailing guxa ? i ." . ' . MASONIC. Sovereign Grand ConAlstory of th Scottish im Signs and Grips. The annual rendezvous of the sovereign grand consistory of sovereign grand in spectors general, thirty-third degree, An cient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Jheld in New York, elected the following officers: Wheeler Cable, Boston, most puissant grand commander; George Davia, Charles ton, W. Va., puUsant lieutenant grand commander; Cornelius H. Benson, Jersey City, grand orator and minister of state; William H. r-uttcn, Brooklyn, grand sec rotivry general; John H. Russell, Xew York city, grand treasurer general; James L. Watson, Lesina-ton, grand master gen eral of ceremonies; John P. Sreffnerr, Chattanooga, grand marshal general; George R. Coffroth, Baltimore, grand standard bearer; Jacob Schael, L'tica, jrrand captain ot the guard; George W. Davis, Brooklyn, prand seneschal; M. M. Barnes, Boston, grand sentinel; James S. Fruser, Xew York city, assistant g-rand secretary, and Jjimes McGrath, Jersey City, deputy grand master of ceremonies. Colonel WUliara F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) and Nate Palsbury, his partner, were re cently ele vated to the thirty-second degree of .Masonry. Thirteen of the presidents of the United States were Masons. They were Wash ington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jack Bon, William II. Harrison, Tyler, Polk, Tavlor, Pierce, Buchanan, Johnson and Garfield. , Masonry was not intended for the crowd. It is a self evident fact that a Mason ia born, for he cannot be made into one by any human ingenuity. You may preach to him, obligate him all you will, but if the Masonic principle is not there it can not be forced into him. If the work and lecture in the E. A. are ilurred over hastily and in a perfunctory manner, the newly made brother is de prived of the instruction for which he haa already paid. Sir William IT. S. Wright is grand com mnnder and Sir Thomas Montgomery grand recorder of tho grand commander of Minncseta. We can only admit those among us who will subscribe to the tru3 teachiegsof Ma tonry, among which is tolerance, forbear tnoe and respect to the opinions of others, so lorg as these do not conflict with the moral code or the laws of God and man. Sir William J. McMakin is grand com mander and Sir William H. Holt grand recorder of the grand commandery of South Dakota. The twenty-fifth annual session of the prnnd chapter of New Jersey, Order of the Pastern Star, will be held at Newark Sept. 19. Indiana has 103 chapters and 6,711 members of the Order of the Eastern Star. There are 4,170 members of the Eastern Star in Massachusetts. The Order of the Eastern Star is grow ing rapidly in Wisconsin. UNITED WORKMEN. Degree of Honor Membership Qualifica tions Oench Shaving's. Tho supreme lodge ordered the grand lodges of the Degree of Honor to incor porate into their laws the same qualifica tions for membership as are contained in trticlo 16, sections 3 and 4, the pith of which is that the loss of membership in the A. O. U. W. by the husband or mala relative of the lady member of the Degree cf Honor shall not affect the membership cf the lady member. Supreme officers are: D. H. Shields, past supreme master; L. L. Troy, supreme master workman: J. E. Riggs, supreme f jreman; J. G. Tate, supreme overseer; 51. W. Sackett, supreme recorder; J. J. Acker, supreme receiver; W. C. Richard son, supreme medical examiner. It was voted by the supreme lodge to set aside $10,000 to employ organizers in weak jurisdictions. When amendments, laws, etc., are or dered changed by the supremo master workman during recess, such changes do not become operative until re-enacted by the grand lodge from which they came. The law is positive that a brother is not entitled to sit in a lodge without tho semi annual password. The supreme lodge deeided that an ap peal cannot bo prosecuted from a member direct to tho supreme master workman, but must go to the supreme lodgo for ac tion. RED MEN. The Comin; Great Council of the United State Short Talks. Seldom has a more important council of the great council of the United States been held than will be that of the coming corn moon. Not only is thero much busi ness deferred from last great sun, but there will be proposed plans for propagat ing and strengthening the order that will require the best and most careful thought of the representatives assembled. The great council of New York is to bo held in Rochester this year, commencing the 13th of sturgeon moon. The council will remain in session four days. Over SOO delegates are expected. During tho warm moons of summer lay your plans for earnest work when cold weather comes again. There was a gain of over 5,000 members tho past great 6un in New York state. During the hot sturgeon moon is a good time to plan for a campaign of work tho coming winter. Boom the order. XniThtg of Honor.

LODUSKTE WATSINS' CASE. liar Two Thonaod Dalian Withheld from &T on Saapiclon. A case has been filed in the district court seeking to recover $2,000 from the Masonic Mutual Benefit society of Kan sas, of which Dr. L. C. Wasson ia the president and Daniel C. Nellis is secre tary. In some respects the case seems liable to become highly interesting. Mrs. Loduskye Watkiaa, the widow of the late John W. Watkins of Brown county is the plaintiff in the case, and her story as told through her attorneys, llerrick & Lynch, is an unusual one even for the district court, 1 he story as told in the petition is in substance as follows: Mr. Watkins joined the aiasonic bene fit society October 18, 183. Ho was then 49 years of age. lie died April 15 last from the effects of poison "administered by persons unknown," the coroner's jury said. A short time before his death, about a month before, Mr. Watkins was induced to send his insurance certificate back to Topeka and have it changed so that the beneficiaries should be not his wife but his sons. This was done, and the certificate was returned. The sous are diaries J., William, Roy J. and Gree ley Watkins. Mrs. Watkins claims the sous accomplished this change in the in surance papers by duress; that they used threats uud fraud which so weighed upon the mind of Mr. Watkius that he made the change through fear. His mysterious deatn shortly afterwards looks suspicious, and although the peti tion does not lay special stress oa this phase of the case, it is liable to be a prominent feature of the triaL Mrs. Watkins contests the payment of the policy to the sons not only on the grounds of duress, but also on the propo sition that when they were married the husband entered into au agreement to iusure his life in the Bum of $2,00 '. She claims to be able to prove both of these claims. Mrs. Watkin3 has presented her claim to the Masonic Benefit society but as the policy did not read in her favor it was refused. The society is a sound one and amply able to meet all its obligations, and is hoidiag back the money until tho courts determine who of the claimants is entitled to tiie $2,000. Mrs. Watkins asks the court for judg ment frutn tho Masonic Beuefit society for $2,000 aad costs of the action. WAS NOT A FAST HORSE. Suit Krousht By m Man Who Paid $1, 30 For It. John W. Banks bought a horse of W. H. Wasson last winter that wa3 repre sented to be capable of attaining a high rate of speed witu proper training, lie pa.d $l,Sio0 for the horse and after train ing it several mouths concludes it can neither trot, pace nor run and isn't worth to exceed $75 or $100, so he has com menced a suit in the district court to re cover the price of fne horse with interest at six per cent, from January 1st. Mr. Banks claims that when he bought the mare she was represented to be of extra-tiue breeding aud although never trained a3 a racer could be developed into a swift one with proper training. He claims it was stipulated at the time that if after reasonable trial the animal was fouud to be unsatisfactory she could be returned and the money refunded. Mr, Banks hired an experienced trainer wiio has been working with the alleged fast horse ever siuce last winter, and he has given it as his opinion that it isn't Worth $100. Mr. BanKs claims to have demanded the $1,250 from Mr. Wasson aad whs refused. He therefore asks judgment in the sum named. Ovor myer & isenhart are the plaintiff's at torneys. TU1JF TOPICS.

A set of shoes of rawhide boiled in oil, to weigh six ounces, is being pre pared for old Johnston.

Today the trotting horse is recognized as a distinct type of the family whoso inheritance of a century of breeding has made his natural gait the trot. An English sporting writer remarks that the English turf is smothered un der a pile of vexatious turf rules and bylaws which are not wanted. Rules should be few, but well enforced. A very common stable vice among race horses and, in fact, among all hordes is the tendency to roll complete ly over. Nobody on earth has ever as certained why a horse does this.

That I Why W Are Concerned In the Dif ficulty Between Nicaragua and tha Mos quito Indians Historic Interest of the Mosquito Coast. The international complication at BluefieMs, in Nicaragua, has been some what of a puzzle to newspaper readers not particularly well posted in Central Americ;a affairs. It was well enough understood from the dispatches that the Nicaragnan government or its represent ative, General Lacayo, had overthrown the Mosquito government, but just why the United States and England should get mixed np in the affair was not eas ily apparent to those who did not know that England has for years asserted a virtual protector ate over the Mosquito Indians, and that American citizens had developed practically all the industries and commerce of the country. Though the Mosquito country is with in the territorial limits of Nicaragua, the Indians, who have occupied it from time immemorial, have always been practically independent and have been absolutely so since I860, when England made a treaty with Nicaragua by which they were guaranteed the right of self government. Under this treaty the Nic aragnan government was permitted to senel a commissioner into the Mosquito country to look out for its interests, but T V ROBERT HENRY CLARENCE. was not to disturb the local government cf the Indians so long as they did not interfere with tho sovereign powers of the republic After this treaty had been made the Indians and all the inhabitants of Blue fields, which had sprung up as a sea port town on the Caribbean coast, held a general council and adopted a constitu tion providing for a republican form of government, divided into executive, leg islative and judicial departments. Tho new government began its administra tion Sept. 12, 1861, and has sine been tho sole source of authority in the Mos quito reservation. In 1881 some enterprising Americans went down there and began the cultiva tion and exportation of tropical fruits, leasing land for their plantations from the Mosquito government. Gold was discovered, and the Americans did not hesitate to invest their capital in the mines. The cutting and shipping of ma hogany and other valuable woods and also the india rubber trade developed into an extensive commerce. In tho gold, hard wood and rubber industries alone Americans have $2, 000, 000 of cap ital invested. Twelve years ago the commerce of the Mosquito reservation amounted to noth ing, and now the volume of trado amounts to $4, 000, 000 annually. Twelve steamers ply between Blnefields and the southern ports of the United States, making 24 voyages each month. Two million bunches of bananas are export ed annually, besides the large quantities of mahogany, gold dust, rubber and co coanuts, and all to the United States. The United States send back in return 25,000 half barrels of flour annually, be sides large quantities of beans, lard, pork, beef, com, rice and many other products. The Mosquito government is controlled by the following officials: The chief and president is Robert Henry Clarence, a Mosquito Indian, 22 years old. The vice president is a half breed Indian of tho name of Patterson. The treasurer is a German of the name of Burgenhagen, who is the head man of the Moravian church. The attorney general is J. W. Cuthbert, a Jamaican negro, who is as black as coal and who is a subject of Great Britain. The supreme court is composed of Stephen Hodgson, a native Mosquito; John Taylor, a native of Co lumbia, South America, and John O. Thomas, another Jamaican negro, who is a British subject. The management of public affairs has not been entirely satisfactory. The British lion's paw was altogether too fre quently observable in the administra tion of affairs to suit the American resi dents; of whom there are five times aa many as cf all other foreign nationalities combined. It was under the pretense of reforming things that Lacayo proclaimed martial law and attempted the role of ' dictator. Tho Mosquito coast is historically in teresting as the place where Columbus made his first landing on the continent four centuries ago. His landing place, which he named Cabo de Gracias a Dins (Cape of Thanks to God), is at the north em boundary of what is now the Mos quito reservation, a strip of territory ex tending some 200 mile3 along tho Carib bean coast and averaging about 35 miles in width. The friendly Indians whom Columbus found there, and who received him with cordial hospitality, were the progenitors of the Mosquitoes of today. They were inoffensive, sleepy children of nature, who had never learned the utility of exertion, because ample sus tenance was provided for them by na ture without the asking. Their re ligion was the sun worship of the an cient Iucaa of Peru.
