America can get ahead of European pauper labor sometimes after all. Wm. il. Norris, representing- a Chicago syndi cate, has just secured the contract for furnishiug the Japanese army with canned beef froa the house of Armour 111 Co., and also a con ract for $370,000 worth of cast iron pipe, to be usod in ex tending the Tokio waterworks. The government commission to inves tigate the Pullman strike Las submitted its report. The comtx.ission tiuds that no geueral org anizalio 1 of railway em ployes was attempted until after tha formation of the Gane.-al Managers' as sociation and that the American Uail way union was a measure of eelf de fease on the part of railway em ployes, rendered naoeisitry by the en croachments of the railway managers. It tiiids that the General Managers' as sociation has no j ustdi'.-a ion in law. It places the responsibility of the general trike and its aileudact consequences of destruction of life and property on the General Managers' a;cciition on account of its refusal to arbitra.e. It finds that omo of the demanc s of the Pullman workmen were uuju.aihabie; but that the action of the company was also un just aud unreasonable. It points out and condemns the fact that government offi cers to the number of 8,000 were placed under the pay and con rol of the railroad corporations and says it is a dangerous precedent It finds that the officers of the American. Kail way uuion at no time participated la or advised intimidatiou violence or 'i.-structio i of property and that but a ste number of strikers were enij ige i ia violative cf the law. The commission suggests that contracts pre venting employes from joining labor or ganizations should be made illegal. The weakest part of the whole document is the suggestion that both the parties to labor controversies shall do what is right. If that Lad been done there would hava been no necessity for the commission. What is needed is ley ialation on that subject and preveutttive legislation at that Remedial or punitive laws are of no avail Such laws should be framed as would render occuiraacei like those of last summer imposmbl s. 3so amount of lines or imprisonment of the members of either party to the trocble would reatare human lives sacrificed or the property destroyed. The cotxmisiiou offers no suggestions on this line. Headache is the direct result of Indi gestion and Stomach Disorders.

Larimor rea I a paper on Social lis, .-irn, which created much fa vurable comment. Amoiij othtir thiagi he Baid: "Th present wide spread aal social unrest, i aa occasion for raoat seriom thought, but no ground for alarm. All the civil. ZJ-i natioasof the earth are now actively engaged in discussing the prob lems of how society Bhall be moulded that it can more aiequately and success fully discharge it true f auctions. The nations are struggling for, and groping' toward the light, but they are altogether in the dark. Th light may be dim. but it is the dazz:iur liirht of the coming day and not the approaching gloom of a starless nijht. '1 he attack is made more ulonrj indus trial and political lines than moral and religious ones, but if the lira is once started and c-ets beyond control, the pal ace will be consumed w.th the hovel. In the destruction of that which is wrong1, that which is food may not es cape. If 1 were to sura up th-3 griev ance of the discontented masses ia this country as stated by thorn I would aay that they deaire to substitute for the present capitalistic or competitive indus trial form of, society, a co-operative or socialistic forai. "Human natura is on trial on this con tinent as it has never been on trial else whore, and if it breaks down here, there will be imall hops for it eUdwhare. If under the conditions which have been secured here, men casnot ha belf re- I strained, orderly, industrious and pro- greiive, they may wisely put theta- elves under such masters as they can find and become servants until tue end of time. "The danger is that capital has become so centralized that monopolies are beit.g established, and in too many instances, personal pride, avarice aud (free I lead the employer to fail to give due weight to the claims and rights of thuas who toil. The Unprecedented accatn uiation of wealth, and the operation of tinny causes, which has led in many instauc-ss to its apparently unequal distribution, has g-iven rise to deep aud bitter discon tent." Mr. Larimer in hia paper considered 'the schemes of Donnelly and Bellamy visionary, and said they wouid result in paralyzing all business and checking all progress. "This class is lar?, influential aad rapidly increasing," said he. "The fund amental error of the wli.jls theory is th.it the individual would become dwarfed and lost in the great mass of the poople.' In concluding he sail: 'We have solved the problem of polit ical and religious liberty. The problem of social and industrial liberty is pro foundly more difficult. If we can solve it correctly the cause of civilization will have a great uplift. It may be that our people will attempt to carry out soma of the visionary schemes of social agitators. If we do, sooner or later, we will learu that no social reform can be successful or permanent if we violate fundamental truths. The happiness an J prosperity of eocietv depend upon the reco nitioa of the individual to society. The social re forms are based upon each ia l vidual haviug at the start an equal chance with tvory other individual, aud tae.a each individual striving1 honestly and faith fully to discharge every duty he owes to his family to society, to the stata and to his Creator."

The German Lutheraa church Lin coaville will be dedicated Sunday. There is a man at Anthony who ought to be called Speculation because L is Rife. . The suffrage advocates at Wilsonton hung out black flags when they heard that the amendment was beaten. Pearl Davidson, a little 11 year old girl, started from Galena to go alone to Portland, Oregon, to her sister. Four Galena bov3 have started to float ia a cat boat down Spring river to the Arkansas aud down that stream to Port Smith. Galena Is dining and feting a man called Herod and all the . children in town pull the covers clear up over their heads at night. Another gas well is being bcrel at Dennis. The purpose is to sink half dozen of these wells aod then pipe the gas into Parsons. Peabody Graphic: The editor of the Gaylord Herald is just now "displaying" the thirteenth "ad" for his family since he became a benedict. Owing to the unprece Jen'ed low water in the Smoky Hill river suflicieat power cannot be generated to maintain the street lights at Junction City. An LMna man who wasn't going to have his leg pulle 1 by any soulless cor poration fell off of a freight car ou which he was riding and had both of Lis legs cutoff. A Ilarper young man took his girl to a rally at Anthony and she took so long breaking crackers into her oyster soup that they didn't get to Lear a word of the speaking. Peabody Graphic: When it come3 to perfection in their trada Abilene doctors are 100 test. Last week two of them succeeded in killing an auctioner by a surgical operation.

They have a custom at the Ciay Centar school by which dull pupils may show up with the smartest. The pupils repcrt in the morning Low many hours they studied the night before. A man at Fairview went back to Ireland and nobody knew what for until someone received a lettar from a priest over there asking if tho fellow had ever been married, in this country. "Ellis' Private Box" is the nine of a cigar sold at Glen Elder. It is named so doubtless on account of the general curi osity that has existed in the Siith dis trict to see the color of Judge Ellin' cigars.

And in rToin the conntry. its hedges and byways Came swarming like bees those Kepublicaus With yell', screech and whistle, with fife, horn and drum. Witu every e.tnceivab'e noise they e er knew. It sounded, indeed, as if Gabriel bad come. Or Uie whole world at one time had agreed to say. Boo! A. F. . Peter Gish did it after alL Well, it's over for another two years. The flambeau uniforms were ruined by the fire works. Topeka played to almost the capacity of the town last night. The Manley-Tillotson libel case comes up at Lawrence tomorrow. The formal openinar of the high school building will occur Friday. Since the defeat of R. J. Sloat, Santa Fe stock has advanced from 5 to GJ4. The secretary of the Y. M. C. A is happy over the defeat of woman suffrage. The mayor aud council are now trying their hands at the game of "freeze out." They may have had Gabriel's horn in the parade, but they didn't have Gabriel to blow it. The recent improvements at the front of the city building were quite the prop er thing. Before Annie L. Diggs went Into poli tics she taught the largest Sunday school class in Lawrence. If this was a campaign of education why was requiem spelled "requium" on the parade programmes? C. S. Gleed hss gone to New York, to be gone for an indefinite time. Ha. is accompanied by Mrs. Gleed. Governor Lewelliag has denied a ru mor that he would call an extra session of the legislature next month. The fire at 7:30 last night was in a row of sheds at 1015 East Sixth streat. It was probably incendiary. Loss $150. Dr. S. McLallin of the Advocate did not coma down town last night to wit ness the Republican ratification. Topeka people who have been crying for a good attraction should stop it if they fail to see Felix Morris tonight. Several young men disguised them selves as women last night and shocked people by smoking cigars on the streets. A great many boys fired revolvers con stantly last night. They should have been arrested lor there was danger in it. Not a flag or a . ribbon was displaved from the 3tate house yesterday. Even the emblems of mourning were hid from view. The man who didn't care for parades, and who said ho wouldn't stir out of his house last night was the first on the streets. The United States circuit court will eouvene in Topeka a week from next Mou JNiy. Judgo liiner of Wyoming will preside. Miss Rebecca Adams will act as secre tary of the Topeka Y. W. C. A for a few weeks iu the absence of Miss Emma Burgess. The new Rapublican legislature is pledged by the state platform to give us some irrigation legislation. This doesn't mean resubmission. A horse and busrgy owned by Council man Griggs was stolen last evening be fore the parade from the corner of Sev enth and Quincy streets. There is a good deal that i3 human about tin horns. It is the smallest one that makes the most noise. Some Republicans said they thought the cofSa in last night's parade was carrying matters a little too far. They only carried it to Tenth street. Papers restoring nineteen penitentiary convicts whose terms will soon expire, to their rights of citizenship have been signed by Governor Lewelling. E. B. Cowgiil. If. Ii. Hilton, William Tweeddale and J. W. Gleed are the To peka people on the programme of the Hutchinson irrigation convention. C. M. Foulks, claim agent of the 8anta Fe. has returned from Buffalo, N.

The annual meeting of the society will be held in January. There is said to be a street in Topeka that has been cut down three feet and filled up three feet three times. Every time we get a new citv engineer he takes a whack at that ktreet. Bill Higgins' legs were not Been stick ing out of the tent in the parade last night which was inscribed "Tentincr on the Old Camp Gr und." But Bill is"tent ing" there all the same. A Topeka youn T man whom one of the newspapers saved f.um police court noto riety recently, ia now around abusing the "paper as a "Scandalous Sheet." It doaia't pay to spare most people "for the sake of their relatives." An East Eighth street tinner made a big horn thirty-one feet long for the pa rade last night, to be blown by a bellows. Tiis only troub'e with the horn was it wouldn't toot. It slmply made a noise like the wind iu th 1 chimney oa a gusty night. Several Republicans who have had bills against the Republican state cen tral committee, bave receipted their billa and asked that the amounts be paid to Arthur Gresrg, the young man who was hurt while tiring the cannon in the state house yard election night. On upper Lincoln street, water from the rains flowed oil, until the street force went out there and "improved" the street. Since then, after every rain, there has been a stagnant pond in front of several of the ' houses. The people there are glad there is no city engineer and hope there won't be one very soon. LOYE LATE IN LIFE. it Doesn't Make Any Difference If It Isn't Fresh Wltb. Youth. Age seems to be no barrier to Cupid's gatling gun and it can ring the bell at 80 as easily as at 20. Yesterday a nice appearing old couple appeared before Judge Elliott and re quested to be one for better or for worse. He was 77; she was 73. Their names were Carlton Wjman and Harriet EL. Davis. They were happy in their new found love. There was the hectic flush upon their cheeks that always cornea of love or indigestion. Trustingly she placed her hand in his and gave into his keeping all that wa3 left of her life. Happy will be their married life no mother- in-law. They lire la Purkdale MASONIC.
