It is certain that the free silver people, who have bad hopes that he would f.ivor t-.elr cause, will bo disappointed. There has been much written since the la-t election that the president would realize the ueces-iry for conciliating the free silver e.einent of the Democratic partv.

' An examination of the warrants in the state auditor's office on which the mem bers of this board draw their money, shows that they certainly know how to get their tingers on state mouey. ' 'I'he law under which the state board of health exists is vere explicit about the auiies and powers of the members of the board, and now they snail be paid for their services. Tiie iaw provides for quarterly meet ings of the board and says: '-No mem ber of the board shall receive any com pensation for services rendered; but tiieir traveling and ot tier necessary ex penses while employed on the business of the board shad be allowed and paid." This last clause is the loophole for a great deal of crookedness. ihere are nine members of the board ; of health who elect ttieir secretary. Al- thougn he is not a member he is tne exe cutive o llicer of the board ana is paid a salary of $ii,0UJ a year for his services ! '1 he la?l legisirtiue made some special : ap p ro i.riatious lor the board of health, tiie iarge.il of which was the celebrated 10,UiJU r-pecial fund to be used for the express purpose of prolec.inc the state from cuolera should there be an epi demic of that disease iu this country. Tne regular appropriation of $2,0:10 for the saiaiy of the necretary was ma la and an aduilioiial appropriation of $1, (;00 for expenses ol members of the board and a special appropriation of ! j oo were made lor special sanitary ser vices. 'i he other expenses of the board are supooed to be the traveling and hotel exi enses of the members in attending the quarterly meetings of tne board. 'lutee members ol the board have thus far secured big slices of the state's money, but it is said there are otiier members ready to get tumr share if this S.UuU balance of tiie cholera fund is pi..eed at their disposal. The tirst big grub at the treasury was made by Dr. A. J. Anderou of Lawrence and tne secretary, Dr. II. A. Dykes, who on August ai, drew $t5o fur ihe.r ser vices m inspecting tne Slate charitable institutions. 'llie money was drawn by Dr. Anderson, who receipted lor it.

'ihe last grabbers were Dr. J. W. Jea ney of Saiina and Dr. P. Daugheriy of Junction City, who went to ioutreul, Canada, to aueud a meeting of the Amer ican Public liealih association. They were gone about a mouth, although the association was only in session a few days and the state law does nut provide for sending' members of the board of health oil Oil that kind of picnics. Oil Saturday Dr. Jenuey drew 225 from the state for tils expenses on tuis trip during which it was asserted he visited his relatives in the east. Dr. Daugheriy was more modest in his claims aud only drew $ -O-J for his east ern trip. Taei-e ia about i200 left of thia special fund for expetir-es of members oi the board of health and it now remains to be seen who gets that and what it ia paid out for. Dr. Dykes was preparing to get a big slice of the .V$,Uo balance of the cholera fund when tne injunction proceedings were commenced, a Utile over a wceat ago.

Although he is paid a regular salary of t!,Ouo for his services, Dr Dykes said ins special services to the state were worth from sjotj to 1U0 a day and he proposed to charge that amount for himself aud his brother. 1 he hearing of the injunction case could not bo concluded Saturday night ariu as the lawyers wanted more time.

'Ye.-; 1 am ready to admit that I lost the bet," and Mrs. Lease readied down into her shopping bag aud produced a rob of bills "and I am ready to discharge the debt," continued the Populist Joan of A rc. ' Oh I can't take the money," replied the lighting editor, "You will have to see liev. Mr. Smith and turn the money over to him." -No sir," quickly responded Mrs. Lease, "you will have to taite ihe money yourself. No second person is included. I don't know Mr. Smith. " Major Hudson refused to take the money so .Mrs. Lease put the bills back in their piace aud soon left the hotel. A wee it or two before the election Ma jor Hudson and Mrs. Lease met on a train near Kansas City and made a wager on the coming election, .rs.

Senators Jones, Stewart and Pet tigrew31ana:inir the Scheme. Minneapolis, Miau.. Nov. 19. The i Gary, S. D., correspondent of the Journal, j wires as follows: j It would scarcely be expected in j formation revealing a great national I conspiracy to ruin the Republican party ! should be found in this unimportant vil lage. Nevertheless my information is so ; direct and the source so authentic that I have no doubt of the truth of what I have to tell. My informant is a gentle man of veracity, who is acting as amauu eusis to one of the leaders iu the move ment, aud I have long known Inm to be ; reliable. 1 In short then the story ho tells is this. 't For several months an understanding has existed among the leading silver men of the United Slates that an empnatic de maud shall be made that the Republi can platform of lS'.Xj shall contain an un equivocal do'ciaraiiou in favor of un quaiilied free coinage of silver and that iu the event of failure of the Republi cans to so declare a new party movement shall forthwith be sprung with a two plank platform declaring simply for pro tection aud free coinage. 'Ihe management of the movement is largely iu the hands of Senators June;, Stewart and Pettigrew and they are looking to Senator Cameron as presiden tial candidate in the event of the birth of the new party. The results of the re cent election have given the leaders re newed eonri lence, as they now believe they will be able to absorb the remnant of the Populist party and secure through the protection plank the adhesion of the labor vote in the east. Thus they hope to centralize the en tire free silver strength and much of the labor vote of the country. My inform ant is positive iu the declaration that the Republican party will be forced to either adopt the silver phink or be de stroyed and this intention to rule or ruin is a fundamental tenet of the movement and it is eveu said tiiat Seuator Cameron has already consented to head the re volt.

Mayor Weir was asked to veto a street car ordinance which passed tiie city council recently. Tne ordinance virtually increases street car fare, as under it no more tickets will be sold at the rate of six for a q mirier. The mayor hk.s sent the ordinance to the city clerk's ollico with his signature at tached aud accompanied by a message. In this latter document Mayor A eir says if he had followed the course heretofore outlined in his action on such questions he should have vetoed the ordinance, but iu view of the result of the recent elec tion, he is compelled to recognize an apparent creat change in public senti ment, and adds: T make no reference to my personal interests, though the fact is evident that my work received but slight indorsement from the people of tne city. Since I have dug my way from under the snow banks tuat overwhelmed me I find the Republican principles and sentiments and interests are strongly aud powerfully predominant. 1 need not elucidate tiin point further. 1 recognize the i-ui-in who with one mighty voice have de manded Republican control, and I bow in submission to their will. 1 hey de mand Republican medicine, ami 1 d n ,t feel it my duty to cork the bottle from which it is to be administered to them.'" Iu conclusion the mayor says, prompt ed by a desire to carry into cilect the legitimate results of the late election and in view of the fact that the ordinance n a Republican measure, formed by a Re publican legislative body, he feels con strained to approve it. 'ihe message has created considt rable of a stir iu Lincoln and no little amount of heated argument. CAIIYEI! MATCHED. lie nucl Ciiptuin llrcwer to Shoot Willi ev York A ma ten r. Chicauo.
