The Indian is rapidly disappaaring from the faca of the earth, but there is one thing he can't tfcke with h:iu and that id hid summer. Whh this cruel ciiuapaig-n ia over, it ia to bo hoped Governor Lewelling- will dis miss Dr. McCasey. It is such a bore to have to discuss him. Thu womin rather like David Over myer in spit' of hia arguments against woman euifrage; that's because they don't believe he really means it; and he probably doean't. David Overmier says he never did talk ia favor of prohibition; but his friends recall instanced where he did. We secretly believe our brilliant towns man id nt half as ltd aa he paints him self. The representative of the su?ar trust is with us this week, but we can assure him that he will not be mobbed, notwithstanding- that va western people think the supar trust is nearly allied to the world, the flesh aad the devil. That's a nice little story about Pub lisher 1L A- Heath hi.ving 500,000 to bet on Lewell'uir-. If it aad come out a lit tle later in the campaign it would be called a "roorback;" but it appears to have come oat early ecough to to called imply a plain lie. If- these desperate attempts to get somebody to go down ia the Seventh dis trict "to help out," continue, the whol9 state will be convinced eventually that the Seventh is hopelessly lost to the Re publicans. It seems that Jerry'a crutch has been doiacr lots of work for him. The A. T?. U. claims to have 900 mem bers In Topeka, ami it is claimed that every one of the 800 votes will be cast ftr the Populist party. In spite of this statement very many of the railroad men la Topeka are members of Republican organizations. If suoh a large number of the railroad voters have changed their political opinions and become Populists In the last year, they have certainly kept very quiet about it AnnotOH both Populists and Repub licans are claiming the state by 25,000 plurality, as a matter of fact both are really counting on from 6,000 to 7,000. The best estimates made by the shrewd est politicians are as low as that. An other close election ;n this state will be little less than a irisfortune. All citi zens who prefer peace hope that the plurality is pronounoed enough to con vince the defeated party that there has ba aa false ooaob Again the United States array has Leea called into service to protect a corpora tion. This time it is the PaciCc Express company, and the scone of operations is to be the Indian Territory. Corporations are continually becomin; more burden some to the people. Af .cr being- g-rait 3 I all sorts of special privileges they are al ways calling- on the courts or the array for assistance. Ordinary pejp'e or buii i ness enterprises do not receive any buoh fostering care from the government. After being tha recipients of so many specialjfavors, if.the corporate enterprises cannot tike cure of themselves it mitrht perhaps be as well for theta to earrender their affairs to some one else and go out of business. In fact if the government must furnish rn 'u enough to r 1 1 the ex press business cf the country it might as well operate the whole thing in the in terest of the people. The patrons of the company are now compelled to pay double for the sarvice; once to the com pany and once to the govemueat to see that the service is performed. The com plaint is made ty the company that ue deputy marshals are in league with the robbers. Let them hire their own pro tection and perhaps they will get a better article. Another complaint is that it costs so much to catch the robbers. If they would spend some of their funds in preventing depredations it might belesa expensive. It is about time that corpor ations were left to take their chances like other people. Vies Phesiijent steye.vsux has been eagaged in swinging around tae circle for the past few days. Tnis circum stance may fairly be construed into a confirmation of the rumor that the gen tleman who presides over the United States senate has a presidential bee in his bonnet. He is ia very good standing with a large class of Democrats because he is believed to be in favor of the coin age of silver. He comes from a god state from which to stiiect p residential timber and there are many things more unlikely than that he should be the nom inee of his party for the first place on the ticket in IS'JS. Especially is this true since Sir. Hill's chances for election to the governorship of Xew York this year seem well nigh hopeless on account of the many warring factions into which the party is divided in that state. The masses cf all parties will insist very strongly on a candidate for president at the next election who shall be ia favor of remonetizing sil ver, anl 5Ir. Stevenson on that account may well ba considered among the possibilities. Kansas Cits' is having such plays as The Love Chae, by Mrs. Julia Marlowe Taber, and Diplomacy, by Huse Cog Ulan. Topeka is reveling ia 4-11-41 and L'uole Tom's Cabin. We neern to te si lt trucked this easau, and yet there U no bettor theater going town in the Unite i States of its 812:0 than Topeka.

If we are to drt p back into tho deplorable state of affairs, theatrically speaking, that we occupied three years ago, we saould govern our selves accordingly. If nothiug but vul gar horseplay "attractions" like that at the Grand opera housa last night are to be brought here, ( because they are cheap) tha theater-guit; people of To peka will simply stay away, that's all, and these "attractions"' will play to err:py houses. Topeka is too big a town to bo ill-treated in such a manner. A cheat many of the people of To peka are interested in this Santa Fe meeting. They don't quite cath on to these "Amsterdam proxies" aid this "cumulative voting" aad other things, but they wouM like to know if George R. Peck is going to continue to hold his job.

Death of ClAr-I Who Ha Been a Terror For Many Years. Special Correspondence. Vienna, Oct. 9. Although quaens, as a rule, cannot be expected to manifest any particular sympathy for brigands, yet I imagine that Queen Olga of Greece will have bean somewhat moved by tha death at Lamia of Nasos Papakyritsop ulos, the bandit chieftain who for years has been terrorizing the province of Phthiotis, for she was personally ac quainted with him, and on one occasioa intervened to save him from punish ment which he had incurred while serv ing in the army. I was in Athens at tha time and remember hearing from the queen's own lips how she had bee:a brought to interest herself in his fate. One day, when she was walking in the gardens of the palace, a young man dressed in the uniform of a corporal of infantry appeared before her and threw himself at her feet, invoking her help. From the story which he told her it appeared that he was a son of a provin cial mayor who had been overtaken by financial misfortunes. In consequence of this the parents of the young soldier's fiancee had insisted on the engagement being broken off. This had upset the youth to such an extent that he became moody and bad tempered and finally ended by striking in a fit of passion a sergeant who had jeered him vti the subject of his love affair. Realizing the gravity of his offense, he had taken to flight, and knowing the fate that await ed him if arrested in his despair he be thought himself of the queen and re solved to beseech her to exert her influ ence in his behalf. There is no warmer hearted woman in the world than Queen Oiga, and, thanks to her, he escaped with merely a nominal punishment, being forced, how ever, to quit the army. Instead of re maining at Athens or of emigrating, he was ill advised enough to return to his native town of Lamia, where he arrived on the very day that his betrothed was being married to his rival. This was more than ho could bear, and that same night both bride and bridegroom were laid low by the dagger of young Nasos. Captured shortly after this and con- KING GEOGB. QUEEN OLGA. demiied to penal servitude for life, ha found in the penitentiary his father, who had been imprisoned for some con travention of the bankruptcy laws. The poor old man was in the lai' stages of consumption and died in his son's arms, Nasos thereupon in the bitterness of his sjriof swearing eternal vengeance against society. Three months later he, together with nine of his fellow convicts, took advan tage of a hurricane raging one d:trk De cember night to escape and to mr.ka good their flight to the mottutains, where they organized themselves into a band cf robbers. As in the story books, their depredations were mainly confined to the rich, and they were so generous with their plunder that, far from being either feared or hated, they were be loved by the entire peasantry of the countryside, especially the bandit chief, young Nasos, who was known through out the province as "The Boy." So great a power did Nasos and his band acquire that they were able even to in fluence the election of pailiamentary representatives of the district, and a few months ago the congressmen from La mia and the neighboring towns were actually forced by their constituents to urge the minister of the interior to ab stain from the project of sending troops for the purpose of capturing or killing tho bandits. Some years ago Lord and Lady Mnn cater, Hon. Edward Herbert, Mr. Fred Vyner, and Count Boyli cf tho Italian legation were seized by biiganda while picnicking on the plain of Marathon and hurried off to the mountains. Four days later Lord Muncaster was released and sent to Athens for the purpose of secur ing the ransom and the terms of immu nity demanded by the brigands. They insisted upon $150,000 in money, a free pardon for present and past outrages and the liberation of certain brigands then in custody. The English minister at Athens urged the Greek government to procure the release cf the captives even upon the terms cf the brigands, and received a distinct promise that tbe matter should be settled at no matter what cost. With characteristic lack of faith, the Greek authorities tried to avoid the payment of the ransom by compassing the arrest of the banditti and dispatched a body of troops to cap ture the outlaws. The latter through their friends at Athens were at once ap prised of tlj scheme. Enraged thereat, the robbers carried the unfortunate trav elers farther into the interior, and after subjecting them for several days to the most distressing anxiety as to what their fate micrht be, murdered them in cold blood. The bodies when found bore, besides a number of gunshot wounds, the appearance of having been, in addition thereto, stabbed in the back. The alTuir created an immense sensation at the time, which was still further in creased when several members of the par liamentary opposition in Greece as well as an Englishman named Noel, domi ciled at Negropoute, were arrest d and placed on trial along with the biiganda for complicity in the massacre, and most of the accused paid the penalty of their crime with their lives. But, notwith standing this, brigandage continues to remain as much of a curse in Greece as it was in the days when the French novelist, Ednond About, selected the Greek brigand Hadji Stavros as the hero of his popular tale, "The King of tha Mountaimj.

The customs and immigration officials here have discovered a scheme whereby it is estimated that 500 pauper Japanese have been admitted this year. The only re striction the immigration law imposes l? that each applicant for admission shall possess $30. It now develops that when a party of pauper Japanese arrive in Victoria they are met there by agents from this eids, who supply each with $30 and a ticket into this country. Upon arriving here the Japanese are takea to the custom house, examined and as each has the requisite amount the party is passed. Before departing for in terior points the money is refunded to the agent, who crosses the line again to await another batch. The discovery of the scheme is second only to that made during the term of ei vJollector Wasson, when a party of twenty-seven Japianese applied for ad mission. They were lined up in a hall outside the collector's office and were called and remained separately. An Inspector atnuding near happened to see one giving money to another, arid suspecting fi'id, had tho entire party taken before the collector iu a bunch, resulting in the discovery that thwre wa but 30 among the whole crowd. As a consequence all but one were bundled back to Victoria, where the agents evi dently connected with the scheme were recently unearthed. A !I Ail K TWAIN JOKE LET. Ho Proved to Sirs. Htowa 1 hat lie Had a f'ollar and NeckrU. j There is a story told in Hartford ! about Mark Twain which is more I characteristic than funny, but it suif- j g-ests a comfortable fashion. Mrs. : Barriet Beecher Stowe lives a few i doors from Mark's house, and oas fine bot tumint-r morning the bohernian jester, while strolling- out before breakfast in a smoking jacket and slipperti and without either collar or neektie, found the venerable au- ! thoress sitting- on her veran la, and so went inside and made a morning call of a quarter of an hour or so. Then he lounyed home to breakfast and shocked his wife by telling her that he had been calling- on Mrs. Stowe. She advised him to dress after break fast and call ag-ain and apolorizj. Mark knew a better way. lie sent a collar and necktie by one of his chil dren, by- way of sample, and Mrs. Stowe expressed herself as perfectly satisfied. I-'irat Voyagers. A custom house examiner on the pier of a New York Atlantic liner is authority for the statement that peo ple coming- from abroad this year are not brinfrinj-f home so many clothes as they have in years pone by. Xew York men who cross often carry one steamer trunk. People from the West usually come with the largest stock of garments. Passengers who have come back from their first voyag-e cause the most trouble. They are usually overstocked with everything. It is easy to recognize them as first vovag-ers, because they run about the pier chasing up their trunks as though they were the only passeng-ers on the ship. Arranged Satisf.ctorilj-- A Virg-inia jud-e once visited a plantation where the darkey who met him at the rate asked him which barn he would have his horse put in. "Have you two barns'?" inquired the judire. "Yes, sah, replied th-i darkey, r. ! "dars de ole barn and mas'r has jes build a new one." "Where do you usu ally put the horses of the visitors who come to see your master?" "Well, sah, if dey's Metodis's or Baptis's, we g-en'rally puts 'em in de old barn; but if dey's 'Piscopal, we puts 'em in de new one." "Well, Sam. you can put my horse in the new barn; I'm a Bap tist, but my horse is an Episcopalian. " ai2and 114 Wesi Sth, Peerless Steam Laundi-j-. jL-oin qmsjuk--. Topeka, Kas.,0cL 10, h-l.
