The Populist campaign in this state presents a condition of affairs that has been witnessed but twice before in the history of Kansas politics; that of & man at the head of the ticket who is manifestly so unpopular as to be a bur den. In 1310 Geo. T. Anthony was nom inated for a second tsren as governor by the Republican part;'. The most dam aging charges were made against him by members of his own party and by the opposition. It was found necessary to devote the best energies of the party to sustaining him, and though it was the year of a presidential election, and at a time when sectionalism ran high, he was about 10,000 votes behind his ticket when the returns were in. In the party shouldered another burden in the person of John P. St. John. While there waa nothing especi ally damaging charged against his per sonal character or his previous adminis tration of affairs, his radical views on prohibition, the fact that he was a candidate for a third term and his supposed close rela tious to the railroad interests all com bined to send him down to defeat, not withstanding the fact that the remainder of the ticket was elected by about the usual majority. Granting for the sake of illustration that the relative strength of the Repub lican and the Populist parties is the same this year as in 1392, then if the history of either the Anthcny or the St. John campaign should te repeated, which seems probable. Governor Lewelling would inevitably be defeated. His strength lies in the country districts where the members of his party, who read little but Populist literature, know little of the damaging record of his ad ministration, that is 83 well understood in the cities. The country Is the Held for Republican laborers. KANSAS PARAGRAPHS. The proposals for furnishing hay to Ft. Riley call for 4,475,000 pounds. The twenty-fifth anniversary of the ar rival of the English colony at Wakefield is soon to be celebrated. 'J. B. Johns, hut band of Laura M. Johns, was in the city this week," is the way the Bennington papers express it. A. Dunai of Clay Center tied his cow to the Union Pacific track, so she could graze. The cow catsher did the rest. There has been so much sickness at Tescott that the only practicing physi cian there felt juatifed in getting mar ried. Mr. Apple of O tawa county, would like to be picked by the Republicans of Ottawa county as thiir candidate for pro bate judge. The croquet dlssa.e has become bo malignant at Junction City that the cro quet grounds are illuminated, so as to play after dark. The housekeeper at the Soldiers' Or phans' home at Atchison Has put up 600 quarts of tomatoes which the inmates will put down this winter. The Lincoln Republican says the women there go in bathing in the Saline river just like they do at the big water ing places. Shame on them! An Atchison man has taken 8,000 pounds of honey from his bees this year. There is considerate difference between a "has bee a" man i nd a "has been" man. It is understood the fact that football was a crime in England during the reign of Henry VIII Is new being expurgated from all the text books of Baker univer sity. A Wichita manias rought a 14-foot alligator home from Florida with him for a story tester. When the story is so big the alligator can't swallow it, it will do to tell. The city marihsl of Junction City, while chasing a dog, killed it when it was directly in front of a butcher shop. Chance occurrences are not always to felicitous. The costume of the woman who took the prize at a Clay Center poverty social cost 17 cents. Being married is the only thing that kept her from having a dozen 'offers'' ou the spot The supply of Columbian stamps at the Eldorado pcstiSice has just given out, and the peopln who do a great deal of letter writing will have a chance to salivate their food properly. Minneapolis liesieager: The Populists la Topeka are protesting against the passage of aa occu;;atioa tax by the city council. There are but few Populists ta this town who would te in any way af fected by such an ordiaance. A woman at Council Grove took a money order to the postofflce an 1 tore o-I the coupon because it had a ragged edge. When women get to running things tuey will have them all hemstitciied. L. A. Buell of Minneapolis has evolved a system of photographic abstracting on which ha has applied for a patent It consists of photographing each instru ment which affects the title of tie land, and then pasting them in a small book. When the abstract is complete it consists of a fac simile of every instrument under which, the land is held. The exodus Trom the middle and west ern portions of the state and the conse quent large falling off in the voting pop ulation, all resulting from the drouth, will afford excellent opportunities for partisan canvassing boards and dishonest county officials to make fraudulent elec tion returns. That a very large majority of the voters in all political parties favcr honest elections there can be little doubt. This being the case, too much care can not be exercised this fall in taking such measures as will surely prevent any man ipulation of the returns or swelling of the totals of nearly depopulated counties In the interest of any party. Let U3 have a fair and honest election, regardless of who wins. A sincere and united effort on the part of the state committees of the various political organizations will bring1 about this result. ONE LITTLE LONESOME. Rudolf Schell Drank to His Own Health and Was Arrested. When Rudolf Schell entered the po lice court this morning, he was not hap py. His head ached, and his air was a generally dejected one. He was charged with having been drunk. Officer Donovan had found him brood ing over the ills of monopoly ia the alley back of Long's restaurant. He was not a boisterous druhk. He was quiet about it, and as Jailer Woodruff expressed it, "it was a soft, pleasant sort of a drurik." Rudolf stood up and told his story to the judge. He was a victim (?f the late strike, he said. Ilehal been employed by the Santa Fe at Raton, N. M., and his wife and two children lived here. It was Rudolf's first appearance in police court, and he hoped ha would be allowed to advertise it as his last The judge gave him a good lecture and let him go. A spectator to the ense sav3 that IU dolph is not all he seems. He says he has been working at Raton for a long time and has never sent one cent of money home to his wife who has bean supporting the family by ruanin;' a boarding house and that now he has come home broke to eat up her earnings. An examination of the docket showed, however, that the man was listed there as 183 years old and Jailer Woodruff was called up before hizzonner to answer to the charge of falsifying the police records. "I took his word for it," explained Woodruff. "Well," said Jud.e Ensrninger. "I want you to take notice that it is the order of this court that hereafter before you enter a man's age on the docket you look at his teeth." HE WOULDN'T TRADE. A Bright Southern Kansas Hoy on His Way to the Orphans' Home. Eder Logee slept at the police station last night Eder is a Caldwell, Kansas, boy, and was on his way to the orphans' home. He is not a very big boy nor is he a remarkably clean boy. His baggage was not extensive and the only trunk he had with him was an old coffee sack, into which he had dumped in delightful promiscuity his few belongings. He had a new straw hat and a couple of shirts, that might have been w hite before they got into the general tangle in the sack. There was a revolver and four pairs of clamp skates. "What are you going to do with those skates?" asked the reporter. "Sell 'em if I can." "Where did you get them?" "Traded for 'em down home." A colored boy who stood near offered him a nickel for the revolver. Eder was speechless. "Give yer fifty cents." uNaw ye won't Gimme dollar an'alf." "Give yer dollar." "Gimme dollar'n quarter." "Not much." The trade was off, and Eder threw his sack over his shoulder and started for the asylum on foot TOPEKA THEATER OPENS. Every Day Thia Week.

Fatal Fall of the Archduke William of Austria German and English II or back Klders Klnga Who Can Ride WeU ana Those Who CStnnot. Special Correspondence.! Berlin, Aug. 9. Considering that Arc-hduke William jf Austria was cele brated a3 one of the most superb eques trians ia aa empire where nearly every man may be said to ride well, it ia cer tainly strange that he should be the first prince of the blood in modern times to lose his life by a fall from bis horse. Unable to disentangle his foot from the stirrup, he was dragged along the ground for several hundred yards, the frightened animal's hoofs pounding his kindly and genial old face until it had lost all human semblance. The late Duke of Orleans, father of the Comte de Paria and the eldest son of King Louis Philippe, had his neci ' -A Ay ARCHDUKE WILLIAM OF AUSTRIA. broken at Paris while attempting to jump out of his carriage, the horses of which had bolted, but to the best of my knowledge there is no parallel since tho beginning of the present century to the caso of Archduke William. Never Look at Ease. This ia all tho more surprising see ing that the majority of royal and im perial porsonages are very indifferent riders at any rate, aa far as the mascu line element is concerned. One might have thought that thia would have been an accomplishment in which they would excel above all others, seeing that royal ty is mainly ornamental, and that it 13 far easier to remain so and to create an impression when mounted than on foot. But such is not tho case. Generally speaking, their seat in the saddle is bath and in spite of all efforts of their pro fessors in the art of equitation and all the care devoted to this particular branch of their education they never look at ease or in any way well on horseback. Thus neither the Prince of Wales nor his brothers, Alfred, duke regnant of Saxe-Coburg-Qotha, and Arthur, duke of Connaught, can be said to appear to ad vantage when mounted. They have German instead of English seats in their saddles, this being due to their fa ther, the late prince consort, having insisted on their being taught riding by a Hessian infantry officer rejoicing in the name of Meyer and whom he had imported for tho purpose from Darm etadt just about the last place in the world where one would look for a good horseman. The princes are seldom if ever seen in the hunting field, the only member of the British royal family who occasionally dons the pink and joins in chasing the fox being Prince Henry of Battenberg, the German husband of Queen Victoria's youngest daughter. Poor Lord Lome I The finest horseman of the reigning house in England was undoubtedly the late Duke of Clarence, oldest son of the Prince of Wales, who not only was passionately fond of hunting, but also rode in a large number of steeplechases winning several important events over exceedingly stiff courses. Princess Lou ise, third daughter of the queen, de serves to be mentioned, too, as present ing a graceful picturo in the saddle and is a superb equestrienne, differing in that respect from her puny husband, the Marquis of Lome, whose horseback experiences have been of quite as en tertaining character as those of the famous John Gilpin of "London Town." It may be remembered that, while taking part in the royal proces sion to Westminster abbey on the occa sion of the queen's jubilee, Lord Lorne, much to the amusement of his brothers-in-law, pitched off his restive horse, alighting on his head. We have Emperor Williarq'fl assur ance that the czar does not know how to ride well, the young German monarch having given public expression to the opinion some time ago that Alexander waa too bad a horseman to like to make war. This may possibly be true of his Muscovite majesty nowadays, but I re member him, when a young man and prior to his accession to the throne, as anything but an indifferent rider, his only fault being that his hand was per haps a trifia heavy. His wife nsed like wise to be a graceful and fearless eques trienne and was wont to hunt, English fashion, until the terrible railroad ac cident at Borki some years ago, which entirely destroyed her nervous system. A KlnRs Miahapa. King Humbert's seat in the saddle is far from good, and there is no other reigning monarch who has been pitched off his horse so frequently. Fortunately he ia lithe and limber and has therefore hitherto escaped any bad effects from his tumbles save severe shakings. The best rider of his family is probably his nephew, the young Count of Turin, who is master of the Roman fox hunt and president of the Italian Turf associa tion, controlling all the race courses of the kingdom. Neither the king of Sweden nor any I V SPA of his sons ride well, and the same may be said of all the members of the royal house of Denmark save old King Chris tian, who Is, however, now too old to ride and contents himself with driving four-in-hand. Prince Ferdinand of Bul garia, although at the time of his elec tion to the throne which he aow occu pies he held a commission ia an Austrian regiment of hussars, is a miserable horseman, so much so that he is forced to review his troops, as a rule, from a carriage and is unable to remain mount ed for more than half an hour at a time. The obesity and indolence of the young king of Portugal render him awk ward on horseback, and an easy seat in the carriage is far more to his taste than a saddle. In this he differs from his consort, who, as a daughter of the Comtesse de Paris, is, like her mother and her sister, Princess Helene of Or leans, devoted to horseflesh. King George of Greece prefers walking to either riding or driving and is more often seen riding in the tramways at Athens than on horseback, his predilec tion in this respect being shared by the members of his family. Other Royal Riders. Another royal personage who can't ride and who simply abominates horses is the ex-king of Naples, who is never seen otherwise than on foot, while his wife is as passionately fond of the equine race as is her sister, the empress of Austria. She races, I may add, on the French turf under the psuedonyra of "Count Isola." Prince Victor Napoleon, the recognized head of the house of Bonaparte, is a de plorable rider and has had no end of igno minious falls, on the last occasion com ing to grief in such an awkward man ner that he brought Count Sergo Morny, with whom he was riding, to the ground, smashing the count's ankle and disVocatiug his shoulder. Indeed his mishaps in this particular are a con stant theme of ridicule to the republio and Orleanist press of Paris. King Leopold of Belgium, strange to say, sits on his horse far more like an Englishman than either the Prince of Wales or the Duke of Connaught. Every day he may be seen riding to the Bois de la Cambre in the neatest of English gaiters, breeches and jacket, presenting quite as well groomed and trim an ap pearance as his nag. The equestrienne feats of his consort, Queen Ilenriette, who is an Austrian archduchess by birth, rival in every respect thoso of Empress Elizabeth and of Archduchess Mario Theresa, who stands on record as having made the longest and quickest ride ever attempted by a woman. Queen Henri tte ha? personally trained a num ber of her horses, especially a beautif-!l mare of the . name of Charme, to per form all sorts of circus tricks, and from time to time Fhe give3 amateur circus entertainments in the royal riding school at Brussels in behalf of one or another of the local charities. Little King Alfonso, like the young Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, is now learn ing to ride and is making rapid prog ress. Fine Equestrians. The equestrienne par excellence of tho royal house of Spain is tho little king's aunt and godmother, Princess Isabella, widow of that epileptic brother of the ex king of Naples who committed suicide in her presence by cutting his throat. She is passionately fond of hunting and never looks to such advantage as when arrayed in the scarlet jacket and black habit of the Madrid Hunt club. Emperor William of Germany is a bold and excellent horseman, although he does not hunt. His skill in this re spect is all the more creditable by rea son of the fact that one of his arms is crippled and almost useless. He spends a great deal of his time in the saddle, r7. . f i . vf-'V- .I r i r mr EMPEROR AND CROWN PRINCE OF GERMANT. which probably contributes a good deal to his retaining his health and spirits notwithstanding the incurable malady with which he is afflicted. Of all crowned heads, however, the most magnificent rider is undoubtedly the Emperor Francis Joseph, who, if the truth were known, is quite as per fect a horseman as his consort, Empress Elizabeth, used to be an equestrienne. I have seen him in many a different uniform, but never to such advantage as in the traditional red coat, high silk hat and top boots eo familiar to all those who have witnessed a meet of the hounds ia Austria, and in spite of his advanced age he ia always in the fore most flight when following the hounds of Count "Niki" Esterhazy or those of the Princess Leichtenstein. All of Emperor William's sisters are excellent horsewomen and only afford additional proof of the superiority of the feminine to the masculine element of royalty in everything that pertains to riding and horseflesh.

The Big- Hedjfe on JJuincy Street no Long er a Hiding .Place for Crime. Street Commissioner Naylor has done a p.ece of work for which he should re ceive a medaL He had the tall hedge fence at the corner of Third and Quincy streets cut down even with the ground and thrown into the river. This fence extended from the alley on the north side of Third street to Quincy and north on Quincy for 150 feet. It was one of the worst resorts and most dangerous places in the city and was the scence of many midnight holdups. The most disreputable characters in town used this hedge, which was as high as a good sized house, for a hiding place; The police have had innumerable com plaints of late about a gang of colored women who made life miserable for any one who happened to go that way at night. Sunday night the police made a raid on the place surrounded by the hedge, but the dozen or more of men and wo men behind the hedge escaped. The matter was placed before the street com missioner and he summoned his force yesterday and by the vigorous use of axes this eye sore of the police had soon disappeared.
