Few people -will see the logic In this. The policy of the people is to keep on "turn lag the rascals out" until the party man agers learn that scandals of any kind or by any party will not be endured. Caldwell News: Attorney General Little, elected by the Populists, not only rides on free railroad passes, but lend them to his fr.ends, contrary to the ex press stipulation that they are not trans ferable. What right has an official to re ceive a free pass front a railroad com pany for which he pays not one cent? Especially what right has a Populist re former to take passes from a railroad cor poration? This is one of the most dan gerous and pernicious customs that has grown up in this couitry. A free pass may not be accepted ai a bribe, but what is it given for? Why are officials singled out for these favors? Why does a farmer, a mechanic, a laborer uud a large major ity of business raen Lave to pay their way at regular rate? The object is too patent. Suppose judges and others ac cepting free passes ara not corrupted by receiving them, still it is human nature to be somewhat in3aenced by these things despite one's self. Away with ail forms of corruption, rxiid or otherwise. Thk following f ro n the Chyenne County Rustler resembles a great many Items now to to seen la the papers in the "Jrj" coucties: "Joha Acdersoo, who has been trying farming for the past to years out at Lawn liiJge, jacked his goods ia a car and started back fur Iowa this week.

Doubtless hundreds of thousand of peorle will yet live in western Kansas, but they will take their "rain-aiakisra" with them in the shape of windmills. One of the most original newspapers in Kansas it the Guffs Advance. At the top cf its editorial page it keaps stand ing the following declaration of princi ples: Ocr Politics Stalwart Republican.

In response people arose to their feet. The test made in Topeka is a fair sample of those made ia all parts of the Btate. Abilene Dispatch. Where could the Abilene Dispatch have got such information as that? It isn't true. What Mr. Scott said was, "All those who have formerly been Republi cans and are going to vote the Populist ticket this fall stand up." They were not recent converts at all, as the mislead ing item above would indicate. It ia customary for all Populist papers to ac cuse Republican papers of lyiag, bu' such items as th.;se show that there are erring editors everywhere. KA XSAS PA HA UllAP IIS.

NELSON. Scandinavian Newspapers Abandon Min nesota' Governor in a, liody . St. Paul, Minn., Ojh 11. There is great excitemeut in political circles over the remarkable change of sentiment of the Scandinavian newspapers of the state. Within the last nine days every lar?e Scandinavian daily and weekly in the state, with the exception of one, edited by Governor Nelson's dairy commission er, has boiled the Republican ticket. There are ten of these papers and they have a combined Circulation of over 17 J, UUO. The last of them to turn Nelson down is the Svuska Amarikanska Posten. The Postn aanouuees that from todiy it will support Sydney M. 0-eus (Populist) for governor, and Adolf iiiermau, (Dem.) for btate auditor. The paper says: "Knuta Nelson is nothing but a tool in the hands of the railroad corporations. It is the corpora tions tiit dictate the candidates to the Republican convention:-, and if a Repub publican governor is elected, "Jim" llill will be governor de facto. "Jim" Hill has always contributed ;$5,U00 to the R -publican campaign funl ia ordar to cor rupt the people and bribe thair political conscience." Close students of the political ei'aation believe that the contest for governor, ow ing to this great defection, will be be tween Becker (Deux) and Owens (Pop.).

Brief Sketch of the Life and Aims of the Organization Its Educating: Influence. Preparations For the Approaching An nual Convention In New York. The men -who design the important buildings of the United States are look ing forward svith pleasant anticipation to their twenty-eighth annual meeting, which is to be held in New York in raid-October. If the earnest efforts of those amcug them who dwell on Man hattan Island can bring it about, they 1 DAXIEL H. BUEXrLf, PRESIDENT. will not only not be disappointed, but they will get more profit and entertain ment out of the coming gathering than they have ever before realized on euch an occasion. The name of the organization to which these men belong is the Ameri can Institute of Architects, and the committee of arrangements, whose mem bers are laboring to prepare a fitting programme, both from a professional and a social standpoint, is made up of K. II. Kendall, Charles F. JlcKim, Al fred Stone, Thomas Hastings and A. J. Bloor. Papers are promised from W. P. P. Longfellow, Henry Van Brunt, Russell Sturgis, Thomas Hastings, T. M. Clark, P. B. Wright, Louis H. Sul livan and R. W. Gibson. To many readers these names may not count for much, but 3 the architect and the stu dent of the evolution of the American idea in architecture they mean a good deal, for these men are numbered among those who have contributed im mensely toward the progress that has been apparent in America during these later years, both in the direction of a national schoc-l of architecture, and also toward the creation of buildings that are really beautiful and admirably adapted each to the use for which it is designed. The prototype of the American Insti tute of Architects came into being near ly (JO years ago, when one less than a dozen of the few competent architects then practicing their profession in the United States gathered at the Astor House, in New York, and formed the American Institution of Architects. Tiie names of the men who were inter ested in that organization have since been written largo in the list of the pioneers who paved the way the archi tects of today are treading with such marked results. These latter are no doubt, as a body, far in advance of those who passed before in freshness of design, in harmonious treatment and in achievements, but still, when due allow ances is made for the narrower opportu nities enjoyed and their work is exam ined, it must be conceded that the found ers of the "institution" possessed abil ity that must be regarded with great respect. Among them were Alexander J. Davis, architect of the curious cathe drallike pile (recently torn down to make way for a modern apartment building) that for go many years shel tered the University of New York; Thomas U. Walter of Philadelphia, who designed the buildings of Girard college and later the dome and extensions of the capital at Washington; Wilam Strickland, architect, of the United States mint at Philadelphia and the Tennessee state capitol at Nashville; John Haviland, who had been a pupil of James Elmer, the blind architect, and others of scarcely less note. In May of the next year a second meeting was held at Philadelphia, when a more form al organization was effected, the roll bearing the names of 23 professional, 3 associate and 25 honorary members. But although there was no lack of enthusiasm or earnestness among these ,1 7 . 4 1 ,K r GEOP.GK B. POST, FIRST VICE PRESIDENT. men the "institution" did not last, and when you stop to think of it this is not at all surprising. Distances were great er in those days than in the present age of steam and electricity, and architects were poorer. The time and money nec essary to be spent to attend the meet ings of such an organization were found to be altogether too big a drain upon the architects of the young republic. The vital spark of organization, was not extinguished, however, and ten years later an organization was again formed la New York, bet of a purely local WARREN M. CROSBY &.

Its mem bers were not more in earnest or more enthusiastic than had been their older brethren of the "institution," but their environment wag more cond"rnve to suc cess. The country was yea: Ei appreciat ing raore and more the value of beauti ful as well as useful structures, and the ranks cf the profession were filling up with bright young Americans and tal ented, well trained foreigners. It was yet ten years later before this local so ciety was joined by architects outside New York in the effort to unite "in fel lowship the architects of this continent and combine their efforts so as to pro mote the artistic, scientific and practi cal e22ciency of the profession." Then, in 18o7, those who remained ol the membership of the first organization united with the New York society in obtaining a charter for a new national body of architects, Judge Roosevelt oi the New York supreme court granting the document, with cordial wishes foi their success. The title of the New Y'ork body was retained, and during the first four years the growth iu member ship was rapid and steady. Then came the outbreak of the civil war in 1SG1. So many of the best of the architects went to the front that it wa3 found im possible to continue the institute meet ings, and so they were suspended for about three years. But the institute did not disband and before the contest was concluded resumed its functions as they were before the war. Since 1SC4 its membership has in creased every year, its progress being according to periods of ten years, for in 1807, just a decado after the formation of the national organization, 20 years after the birth of the Now Y'ork insti tute and 30 after that of the original "institution," it was decided, in order to give all possible advantages to mem bers E-cattered over the country, to inau gurate a scheme of branches, or "chap ters." The Philadelphia chapter was first in the field after the one in New Y'ork, and chapters in Chicago, Cincin nati, Boston, Baltimore, Albany, Rhode Island, San Francisco, St. Louis, Indi anapolis, Washington and elsewhere have since then been instituted. In 1SS9 the Western Association of Architects, which had been formed five years previously, joined itself to the in stitute The underlying principle of this organization was exactly similar to that adopted by the institute, and of Euch. numerous membership was the A. J. BLOOR, SECRETARY NEW TORK CHAPTER, western body that its accession nearly doubled that of the older one. During the early years of the institute's life its conventions were held at somewhat ir regular intervals, but a dinner was eaten every yearon Washington's birth day. These gatherings still live in the memory of some of the older members with a vividness that nothing can dim, but no records of them are now to be bad. One of the most beneficial movements made by the institute was the arranging for the publishing by a Boston firm of The American architect and Building News, the initial number of which ap peared in 1876. Its establishment has been followed by other periodicals cf a somewhat similar character, among them being Architecture and Building tJ 21 it York.

Another very important accom plishment by the institute was the issu ing of a schedule for the guidance of practitioners in their relations with clients, including tho charges which reputable architects in Europe, in their practice since early in the last century, had laid down as minimum fees. Sev eral times the schedule as originally formulated has been changed, and in its final form has been adopted by every architectural fraternity in the country. Idore than one architect, especially among the younger members of the pro fession, has been enabled by the produc tion of the schedule to' smooth out com plications with clients over fees while "et they were in the embryonic state. The institute has constantly made for the uplifting of the architectural profes sion, and its influence upon public spirited laymen of artistic cultivation or tastes has reacted generously to the profession's benefit. There is indeed but one architectural prize offered in all Europe the Prix de Rome of the Ecole des Beaux Arts that is more sought after than is the Rotch traveling schol arship, administered by the Boston chapter and founded by the heirs of the late Jlr. Benjamin Et. Rotch, father of Mr. Arthur Rotch, a fellow of the Bos ton chapter. Its income amounts to $ 2, -000 annually and is found sufficient to support two scholars constantly in Europe. Somewhat similar to this have been the various scholarships in archi tecture established in several institu tions of learning. The present officers of the institute are: President, Daniel IX Burnham of Chicago; first vice president, George B. Post of New York; second vice presi dent, Levi T Schofield of Cleveland; treasurer, Sam A. Treat of Chicago; sec retary, Alfred Stone of Providence. M. L De-xteb. Lars Rchtoatr oe Aalire.
