Shawnee county . people who hadn't cotton ia their ear last night, can hear the dull roaring of the coach shell in them thU mornii g. The Kepublicaaa were happy last even ing and they oj ened their hearts and pocketbookd ana mouths and sent sky ward a noise and a glare that might have drowned the wailing' and intendihed the red of the inferno itself. It waa a wildly joyous uight and every 8'rhiir on human acts and deeds was tem porarily loosened and ttio public ffivem to understand the t the town "itd." And it took it tltiiost without saying thank you. It took it and tayed with it in a way that 8oe:n9l to aa;au destruction. It ia good that th-3 pavement was well propped, for it would surely otherwise have gone down ith the aurg-iug, gtru plin aet of pe plo that rolled from side to at ia of Kansa avenue in long Vienna rolls an l yelled until the windows wav ered before tae wave of sound. Oh, what a nij? it it was ! Kansas has never seen one like it before and h id it not b3o f c r the in toxicatinjr joy of her re lempliou she would nave been shocked at her own druuk-Uke impetu osity. 'l'urnel herself looae." That's what a man said about it last night and if you will say it yours ilf with a lonj breata a il an emphatic accent you will say m jre than you colli ia volumes of weait gramma' ical Kugli-th. The coram tiun tiaa to let folks know it was thoi-e early in the afternoon and when you went hauie to supper you felt quite ure soimii )vv, that the anxiously a. vailed Kepublican u.ifht hal arrived. Kansas avenue looked like a day oil lat:l.iiil I this morning with dead re mo l, and people who were out last liiht trying to tehave au i hear soma thiu' f-H a sort of li.nl.su joy in giving a partiag kick to the Lirakeu instrument of torture tuat l y scattered alon the e'reet and male t loos: like a wrecked ti i shop. The bays were out early lo ak- i ; r fur lire works that missed lire last ii i e h t. I uaiedlutely af:or supper last evening Ka i-as avenue was swarming with peo ji.o waiting for the bi para le and liaai b 'iu d j?iiay. By half past 7 it was ouiy with d.tlijulty you could got aloug the 8 reet at .til. If you hal a conversation y u wanted to cairy on with anyone you yollel it into his oar or else took him out t i th-j I l to n ii. If you wanted to got any here you took the middle of the utreet and do lled ah)ug as if you were i i a football gamtt. If you were a faot b U!i-t it would have been good but rut';er sevtro trair iag for you. K. Tyb )iy s o ued to he on Kansas avenue last uiyht, although many con tend i hat the crowd was not so large nor 8 Vo iter ous as oil tie Saturday evening before the election. llvary possible noise on earth seemed to be there. There were half a dozaa binds in the parade, and the public en Jo ved their try muastic performances im mensely. If they were playing nobody kaew atrythiug atcut it. Tue small boy with the tin cans aal the generally pret t .' girl-with her li o atretched and swelled over the ni i'ithpitce of a tin horn, were there, and did tae best they could to in spire terror in nervous people. The parade did not get a good start till S o'clock, but was a daady when it did come, and the crjAil yelled itself almost black in the face it each of the "lljats." Most of the "ll )a;s" were very ood. There was some little dissatisfaction among the more squeamish people be cause the lea.lit.g baud Marshall's played a funeral dirtra and a cotHu was c irried behind it. Perhaps these people did u )t know that the entire affair was advertised as the "funeral of Populism," an 1 the printed invitations read that way. The first parade was more than half an hour in passmg and contained five binds, nearly liny tloats and aeveral flambeau clubs. At about y o'clock the Toueka Flam beau club of 10J man diseharif ing tire wjtki came up tae street and made things looK lime they hal dssig-ns against the sky. They were followed by the marching clubs with flambeaux. Considering the crowd there were very fe waccidents an i very little drunkenness. The multitude was universally well be haved, considering its rather tumultuous joy, and the many visitors that came in from a distance on excursion trains to see the biggest ratification ever had, went home nred out but in love with fo paiia and her met i d of entertaining.

As Usual They Anunifd Control of Kan sas Avenue Vftr lo O'clock. The only troutli with the demonstra tion last tiight was that a lot of taura people you don't like mistook liberty fur license and assumed control of Kansas avenue as soon as the crowd had become slightly thinned. Many of them were drunk and some were tough natur ally, but it was an ugly combination and they wanted everybody thev met to tight or else take a drink. They were the people who cf verpeem to get south of Fourth street except on just such occasions. "OXE WtLL, BGOSH." A Itnral Visitor Who Mistook a Ticket t Scalper's Mulletfn for Election Keturns.

The members of the church propose to clear their churca of all indebtedness befouB they call a new pastor even on trial, and for that reason t.'ieir preaching has been done during the past few weeka and will be for several weeks to come, by the retire 1 Lutheran preachers living in the city, and lis v.

Two Lutheran preachers, one who re sides in Onio and the uthor in Illinois, have notiiid the church council that they would like to be considered candi dates for the vacant pastorate, but their applications have not been actd upon. bume of the members of the church aro favorably to issuing a call on trial, to liev. Mr. Millar of Pennsylvania, who was a classmate of Rev. F. XL Porch, the late pastor of the church. Mr. ilillar now has a wealthy congre gation, but his wife is anxious to coma west. It is not likely tht a call will be is sued to any one for several weeks and possibly not uutil nest spring. In a letter to a Topeka frienl, Hbt. F. XI. Porch, who now lives ia Louisville.
