Wasuixotox, Oct. y. For Kansas: To night and Tuesday; fair; warmer; winds becoming southeast. If the Topeka police are prodded enough by public opinion they will make an arrest once in awhile. Wicutta Eagle: Li Hung retires in disgust. As the en.peror had deprived him of most of his clothing he could not retire in anything else. The death of Oliver Wendell Holmes removes one of the brightest minds and one of the moat charming personalities that America has ever produced. The Wichita Eagle thinks the state house officials ar-j bound to keep the National Democratic administration from having a corner on the perfidy and dishonor business. Senator Hill's acceptance has a kind of the "die is cast" meaning in it. He must carry New York this tima or for ever give up the hope of the Democratic nomination for the presidency. A Chetopa woman, the home ties of whom the gentle -warmth of summer melted, has becomt sobered by the pros pects of a long hard winter and adjusted all differences with her husband. The Methodist church at Chanute con tains 400 members and only about twenty attend prayer mestmg. Those twenty experiences have been told so many times that a card has been published in the paper urging more to attend. This is the time of year when each political party discovers that the oppos ing parties are disintegrating, but the pieces are always gathered up carefully after election and brought out before the public the next yei.r. In order to justiiy himself before the people Congressman Wilson is going to have his London b.mquet speech printed and spread broadc ist. Had the people foreseen this they would have been quite willing to overlook his remarks. Secretary of Stats; Osbohh has broken out again Tfith his fireworks and calls the report of his Oakley speech an unmitigated lie." It was thought that after Mr. Osborn had delivered himself of hia Winchester-cow speech he wbuld learn temperance, but it was too much to expect. The Democrats are just now engaged Sn a frantic ellort ta convince the country that there is a greut reyival in business. It Is a lingular fan that the political party in power Is always doing the same thing regardless cf the facts, and the parties trying to get in always deny with an equal disregard of the truth. Neither fools the people much. They know when times are go 3d and when they are HILL TO TIIE RESCUE. Senator David B. Hill ha at last ac cepted the nomination of hia party for the governorship of New York. He was the only hope of the Democracy of that state. It was not possible to elect any other Democrat and they knew it. To Tammany it is more important that the Democratic party should control the state of New York than that it should have a' majority in the United States senate. Mr. Hill doubtless sees as the result of a winning fight a possible nomination for the presidency. Ihe man who can res cue the Democracy of the Empire state from impending defeat this year must naturally stand first in the order of suc cession to the presidency eo far as New York is concerned and the state has al ways wielded great power in the party's councils. The contest between the two great parties this year will in reality bt a struggle between the two great party bosses. That Levi P. Morton was nomi nated at the dictation of Tom Piatt is not questioned. All state issues and state interests will bo lost sight of iu the cam paign. The struggle will Le to deter miue which set of bosses shall boss. Neither Sir. Hill nor Mr. Morton has ever given any evidence of statesmanship which would entitle them to be placed at the head of affairs in a great state like Now-York. Mr. Morton is not even an able boss, but his friend Piatt looks after that. lie will have a decided advantage over the senator among the iatslligeut and respectable people but Hill, through Tammany, will get th vote of the alums and the slum vote generally decides elections in New York. If Hill should be elected governor of New York this fall he can hardly be de feated for the nomination of Lis party for the presidency in 1S9G". KANSAS PARAGRAPHS. Cornfield Jack is dispensing corn juice from a new joint at Nickersou. The name of Mr. Piburn of Kinsley has no etomological relation whatever to piebald. Mr. Cheatem is a Missouri man who has settled down in Keuo county to be an honest farmer. At Ivinaley a man who stole a bridle and was taken to the county jail relers to his trip as his bridle tour. The Chetopa Democrat rather ambigu ously says "The reunion brought the usual number cf disreputable characters to the city. A Kinsley politician is trying to eurry favor with the people by announcing that at the county convention he was neither delegate, alternate nor candi date. The Anthony Bulletin publishes the Kansas stray law in full, doubtless so that the parly which gets snowed under at the election will Lot be v. holly with out hopo. The lierington Signal will run adj. just as long as people are ready to pay for them, wit hout regard to appropriate ness. According to it aud the ice men "these days are hot and sultry." It takes lots of trouble to Le honost, according to the views held by the Strong City Derrick. An h jnedt m,n by its deriniuon must select all tho little apple aud put them at the top of the barrel. Thirty-live Strong City youn men got together and organized a dancing club the other day and at least thirty-live Strong City young women will have some place else to go tnis wintar besides Sunday evening church. Governor McKinl jy told the traveling men, a party of whom he met at the lmitd parlors at II utcliiusun, that they were the wheels of trade and commerce. This is probably because they are felloes who go around so much. There are photographers at Ne3s City who advertise the taking of "babies and nervous people especially," that is babies and those who have to be aroirid babies. A man who came in to Hericgton f rom the country left his team standing hitched all night on the street, and every one said "beer" or "poker" with a signifi cant look, but never once thought it might have bean a sick friend he was sit ing up with STA11L STEPS IN. The New County Treasurer Takes His Of fice loiuorro w Ills IS011U. Francis M. Stahl will assume the re sponsibilities of the office of county treasurer totaorrow morning. Hi- bond was approved by the county commission ers today. It is for the sum of f 2o0,0o0, aud his bondsmen are as follows, in the sum of $ 10,000 each: A K. Itodgers. Gaorge Neil, J. L. Strohm, J. B. Kowles, J. K Donneil, John Dickey, Phiiip Keels, W. Ii. Black, L. J. Atwood, J. S. Walker, Thomas Q iayle, J. D. Carriger, Vr. A. Carriger, I. L). Wood, T. W. Harrifion, Samuel H. Moore, A. W. Padgitt, J. N. Kob'mson, J. C. Maunev, J. A Baxter, John Porter, Thomas Buck man, Philip Lux. Uriah Carls. With additional bondsmen in the per sons of J. S. Warner. Geo. E. Flanders, D. N. Burdge, James Stewart, H. U. Farnsworth, M. F. Stout, J. AV. Yawter, Cary Snyder and T. K. Tomsou. The county commissioners hare been busy for several days cheekicg up the books of A K. R'jdgers, the present in cumbent. James P. liowley and Cary Johnson are associate examiners. The checking up process is a formality gone through with each time a treasurer retires and it is safe to asaame tht Mr. Hodg ers' books are as s raight as a string. The treasurer's ofi:ce will probably be closed until a week from today. FOUR SHERIFF'S SALES. A Small Number of Executions Had. to Be Uade Today. Sheriff Burdge had only four sales to day of property delinquent in costs of litigation. The sales in question were: A D. Buehler against A H. Case, et. al., lots 65 and 67, Thurston Place, to satisfy a judgment of $2,071. J. B. Mitchell azainst G. W. Hoge boom, a part of section 18, township 10, range 16. Judgment 300.

Clark, a part of biock "C" at Harrison and Twentieth streets, in Walnut grore. Judgment $710. Good work done by the Peerless. LE WELLING ONLY SMILED. He Didn't Hare Anything To Say in Ite gard to "Charges." Governor Lewelling was in Kansas City last evening on his way to Troy, where he is bil.ed to speak today. A Kan-ag C.ty Times reporter, who found the governor at the Union depot, tried to interview the chief execuave of lidiij..8, but the governor did uot want to be interviewed. "What about the charges that have been published in some of the newspa per .as asked. "What charges?" Here the governor raised his eyeorows, as though, surprised at the question. "In regard to the lotteries. Y"ou have of course seen the charges that the lot teries exist by the connivance of your ad ministration?" 'O-h-hl'" said the governor, as though, reminded of ancient history. Then he smiled slightly, shook his head, but said nothing. "What do you intend to do in regard to the matter?" was tho next question. lhe governor smiled again. He waved his hand in a deprecatory manner and said: "I don't think it is the proper time to talk about that." "But don't you think it is about time you were saying something?" The governor pJaced his hand upon the reporter's shoulder in a fatherly man ner, and said: 'I am not going to talk. A reporter once said: 'Governor Lewelling has locked up his interviewer and thrown the key in the weiL' I believe he was right."' With this he passed out upon the plat form, and no amount of questioning could draw another word from him. JUDGE FOSTER TO PRESIDE Strong Enough to Open the 17. S. Court at Leavenworth. Totlay. Judge C. G. Foster is strong enough to preside at the session of the United btates district court which convenes at Leaven worth today aud left Topeka for that city this afternoon. Judge Foster's health has been con tinually improving for Beveral months and he has been able to dispose of a large amount of business of the court at his house but his friends did not think he would be strong enough to preside at any session of the court this fall. lie has not presided at any session of the court since last October. The court will probably conttnue one week and the United States grand jury will be in session during that time. Deputy Marshal Dillard took four prison ers to Leavenworth today who will be tried at this term.

He was indicted in lSyj, but was not captured until last summer in '1 eras. A cae which has attracted consider able attention, and which will come up at Leavenworth, is that of F. J. Vander berg, who has beea in the Shawnee county jail several months on the charge of using the mails for the purpose of fraud. Tue Free Thinkers convention which was in session here iu SeptemLer, paosed resolutions protesting against Yander berg's imprisonment, as the amount which he is charged with securing by fraud was onlv twenty cents.

Mr. AVilson Thought He Had a Orievance Against the Policeman, Hut He Hadn't. Saturday evening a man named Wilson, who lives in Auburndale, appeared before the board of .police commissioners with a complaint against Sergeant Henry Steele. When the PoDulist rally was held at the City park Meele captured a son of Wilson's on the charge of pocket pick ing and took him out of the crowd and searched Lis pockets, but found nothing, aud released him. Wilson, Sr., thought the dignity of hia family had been injured and he wanted Steele discharged. The commissioners heard both Steele and Wilson and when the injured father heard the explanation of the sergeant his wrath was appeased. Steele said, the boy acted very suspic iously and he had seen him talking to some persons whe were being shadowed by the police. The commissioners were not called upon to act, as the charges were with drawn and Steele will not lose his chevrons. Iterueed t Rfrsznizs Jewiah Ke lixion. Buda Pesth, Oct. 8.
