JUDGE SFILIUH OF MANHATTAN Hwevpr, l X't on the I.it, an Form erly Iteport3tl The bovrrnor and Up to the preieat time five judges have teen discovered who do not ride on rail road pa3aea. AVhea the last report was made Asso ciate Justice Alliin, a Populist, Judge Z. T. Ilazen of Shiwnee county, a Republi can, Judge Jo in T. Burris, a Democrat, had refused to ride on railroad passes, but two more j jdge9 have been discov ered who ought to be placed on the roll of houur. They are Judge Q. W. McKay of Attica. Harper county, of the Twenty fourth judicial district, and JuJje W. A. liashora of the Twenty-eighth judicial district, both I'opulista. Thes-3 judges do not accept railroad passe j aul they pay regular fare when they ri le on railroads. t-peaking of the j?tate Journal's ar ticle on tie us- of paries by the judic iary, the Barton County Iudex quotes from this paper a follows: ''tVe Lave found three honorable judges in Kaasis who do not take passes: oue a Republican, one a Populist and one a Democrat. The door is utill open for any more, if they want to come into the fold." The Index th?n comments: "Xhii district has another that you can include ic the list. We refer to Judge McKay; he never rode on a pass since elected to the josition he now so credit ably tills." borne of the ler-al friends of Judge TL F. t-pilman o "ilvlanhattan have "been standing up for him by saying he does not rid-3 on p isses, but 'theue frieuds were wrongly advised, as Judge Spil man rides oa an annual pass on at least oue line of road which traverses his dis trict. Until Ju ie bpilman returns this pass he cannot be included among the Kansas judge? who want to be above suspicion of being unduly influenced by railroad corporations. The railroads are usually willicg and anxiom to obta.u tha good favor of leg islative bodies, yet au investigation shows that but very few members of the state senate hold anr ual passes. The railroad officials admit the truth of this assertion while Chairman John W. Breidenthal of the Populist stete central committee says he has to pay rogular railroad fare for ail the Populist members of the stpte senate who take part ia the campaign. Governor Lewtliitig nas been accused of riding on a liillmaa pass, but that is 11 rnUtalte, he pys hua way when he dea in a Pullman which is not often as he prefers, ho lays, "associating with the common people." Although Governor Lewelling does not ride on a Pullman pass he is, so an in vestigation at t'le railroad offices shows, the most enthutdastie pass acceptor in the state. The governor aski for passes for all f reenter,! i-l I ;a family and their re l & .-.i 1 far l; f artuer in tha com mission business in Wichita and he gets all he asks for. A railroad man who gives out passes to state otlicials told a State Jocknal. re porter yesterday he "was never more astonished in his life than when Governor Lewelling asked him for a pass for his partner in the butttr and egg business at Wichita. The railroal mau says he was so much astonished that he gave him the pass as requested without asking any questions. JOHN PLEADED GUILTY. Auil the rolice Court Fined Mc Williams One Hundred Uollais. Poor unfortunate John MoWiliiams fell into the clutches of the police again yes terday and was up in the court this morning to answer to the charge of be ing too much of an adept with a keg aud faucet. John was tired of dodging so he concluded it would be tha best thing lor him to plad guilty, and he did. "The sentence of this court is that you pay a tine of $100 and stnd comrai tod tiil the sentence is comp'iel with." The sentence has not yet been complied with and McWilliams is breaking rock. Mr. G.

Stated assembly this eveaia,? at 8 o'cloclc "Work in Royal aid Select de grees. tJjsiKJE P. Cg.-ker, V. L 1L Momethlnc Aboat the Candidates and How the Wires are lleing railed. The Topeka correspondent of tha St Louia Republic who has spent soma time working up a "story" for his paper on the senatorial situation in Kansas, writes as follows: During the past two weaks the Kansai campaign, so far as the Republicans and Popuiists are concerned, has turned upon I tha election of members to congress and j the legislature. The Republicans claim j that there is no longer any question j about the election of the state ticket, and j that the fight from this time till election i day ia for the legislature. The Popuiists j deny these claims and say they can elect j their state ticket by making sure of a j Populist legislature. j There is a great deal of dissatisfaction i among many Republicans because tiie j leaders are attempting to dictate the candidate for United States senator. The leaders and members of the committee have refrained from naming anyone as their choice out of the four or Hve can didates, aud insist that the senatorship must nut be discussed, but the manner in which, two of the senatorial aspirants are put to the front in the best meetings held throughout the state has caused much adverse comment from the friends of I other candidates. j At the beginning of the present cam paign four candidates were announced for the United States senase. They were j A. W. Smith of McPherson, J. W. Ady of j Newton, J. R. Burton of Abilene and Major Calvin Hood of Emporia. I From the cpeni ng meeting of the cam ! p aign to the present time Burton has had ! the call, and he has not missed a big rally arranged by the committee that it j was possible for him to make, j Secretary Bristow of the committee is a strong supporter of Burton, and as he has his hands on thethrottle the machin ery of the party is being manipulated in the Abilene aspirant's favor. Bristow's work has been so adroitly planned and executed that the majority of the com mittee do not realize what is going on. A few days ago the Republicans of Seward county, in the southwest corner I of the state, held their county conveu- j tion. There are not to exceed 250 voters ' in the county, but as the county will probably send up a Republican member of the legislature. Burton was sent there to talk two hours to la-j n' 1 people as sembled. Until recently Ady was not in tha field as a speaker, although he is regarded as one of the strongest campaigners in the Republican party. A. W. Smith has been unable to get into the campaign, though he is an average speaker and well known in the state, Having made the race for governor two years ago, lacking only 5,000 of overcoming the 63,000 majority of the combined opposition. He, too, has been side-tracked, and can only secure appointments from the committee at places where there is a de mand for him. Major Hood is not a public speaker. He is a practical busi ness man. He is in no sense a politician. He was, during the career of Sanator Plumb, his close personal friend and business associate. There are thousands of Republicans, as well as Democrats, who believe that if the Republican party wins the legisla ture, such a man as Major Hood, who would inspire confidence in the ea3t, ought to go to the senate, rather than the political manipulators like Burton aud Ady. In the organization of the commit tee Major Hood received a black eye in the defeat of Frank Fienniken, private secretary of the late Senator Plumb, who was a candidate for secretary. Senator Plumb's friends in Kansas also resent it. office a few minutes. He wanted to know if I couldn't help him. "He said he was hard up and would like to have some help through his news paper. He said he was willing to pub lish any Democratic stuff I might select. I told him we couldn't as we were not in a position to help newspapers. He then asked, 'What is there in it for me any wayr' to which I replied, 'Not a cent. I don't remember any such conversation as he purports to report in his affidavit, but what 1 have told you bIiows the charac ter of the man as well as anything I could say." THE OFFICIAL BALLOT, A. B. SMITH OX rASSKS. Populist County Secretary Says Individu al Cuu't Accomplish itei'oriti Single Handed. To the Kuiior of the State Joiknal: Your attack on the ''pass business" is a righteous one, and it is to be hoped that your zeal will not abate until a clamor has been aroused of so popular a nature that every vestige of its remains shall have been swept away. Much of this talk would have been just as pertinent several 'campaigns ago as it is now, except that our party in cludes, in a general way, the pass among our demands for reform. Some of us, however, have lived too long to expect any permanent results thtough moral suasion. This field belongs to the church. Our demands, from start to finish, are such as require law enactment. In your liberal position on politics you will not deny that the railroads are an important ally to the Republican party passes included. This being the case, our people, with a campaign of sharp contest on hand, in standing close by the letter of reform would be playing in a losing game. Our oppo nents would sweep by us with a pass while we, as noble martyrs to the cause, paid out our substance. This would be angelic but not human. The passes are in sight by a precedent not of our mak ing. We are in the poor man's party and in these matters we are forced to use a means which we despise. Of two evils we choose the least. Our demands call for reduced salaries and less officers as well as an abolished pass, but for individuals to undertake to right these many matters in reform in so single-handed a way is too patriotic to win. What we want and what we must have, as long as men are human and cus tom gives sanction to any phase of wrong, is a law authority a these things so that each individual or set of individ uals shall stand in common on a prohibi tion legal preparation with a healthy penalty attached. We hope you will stay by the agitatioa until our next legislature shall find it their duty to act on an anti-pass bill at their earliest opportunity. A. B. Smith, Secretary of the Shawnee County Peo ples' Party Central Committee. BICHAKDSON SEES CLARK And Goes Him One Better. Hi Side of the Marysville Story. Chairman Richardson of the Demo cratic state central committee said to a State Journal reporter today that he remembers having had a call from a Marshall county man, who he presumes was A. L. Clark of the Marysville Demo crat Chairman Richardson said: "This laaa came to see me and was only in the Plan to Secure a I'niform Ticket All Over the state. Secretary of State Osborn proposes to call the chairmen of the four political parties of the state together and have them agree on a form for the official bal lot to be used in all the counties of the state at the coming election. The law leaves the matter with the county clerk of each county, but it is thought that if all the chairmen agree on a form it will be adopted by each county, and in that way a uniform ticket can be secured all over the state. If the chairmen agree on a form for an authorized ballot, it will then be pub lished in the official state paper. PoliLical Notes.

It i-J a society drama and the handsomest scane of its kind ever staged is said to be the ball room scene in the second act.

Another Frohmau company will play "Gloriaua" on Tuesday night. The Tornado Last N'ijfht and Tonight. The audience that greeted Lincoln Carter's "Tornaiio" at the Grand last night was not so large a3 it might have been. There were not over one hundred people on the tinst floor aud the balcony and gallery were not very well liiled. The scenery is much more complicated than that of the "Fast Mail" aud is de cidedly realistic. The tornado scene in the first act was real enough to send a chill over the audience. When the cer tain went down, what had before been a handsome front yard of a country home was an immense pile of broken lumber, boxes and bricts. The houses and trees went across tins stage in most alarming profusion and confusion. In the second act the steamship scene and the collision were very good, while the wreck sceue was one of the best water scenes over put on a Topeka stasce. The dissecting room scene was alsci good. W. J. Dom ing plays Biff Bass this year.

A 1VOMAX ESCAPES. From the Insane Asylum Last Sunday Still at Large. One more patient escaped from the state insane asylum Ltst Sunday after noon and at last reports was still at large. The escape was mid? when the prisoners were given their afternoon walk, by a woman whose name couJd not be learned. She got away by strategy rather than speed, and her absence was not discov ered until tin? gang returned to the building. Ti:e attendants were in town yesterday looking for her, and from the way they acted she is evidently wanted very bad. It probably never occurred to the attendants that if they gave the name and a description of the escaped person to the papers, the chances of a re-capture would be better.
