Charles A Loder and his company, who appeared at the Grand la3t night in "Oh, v hat a Night," are the first com pany cf their kind that have played To peka this winter an i have not complained of the hard times. At Omaha and at Kansas City the company did the banner business of the season. At Topeka the audience was not so large, but was larger than any farce comedy has attracted this season. The piece is dismal enough for a farce comedy, and the finale to each of the scenes is positively llat. Loder is a per fect comedian in German dialect aud never fails to please. H, C. Casriman, who does the Irish comedy is very funny at times but he isn't a real good Irishman. As a rule the girls with the company are pretty and do some good singing and dancing. Tue audience was particularly inter ested in the buck and wing dancing of Bob Con well, whom Loder has just dis covered. !.e-s than two weeks ago the company was playing in Davenport, Iowa, and as usual, most of it was load tig about town ia the day time. Suddenly Cashman, the Irish comedian, reappeared at the hotel iu breathless haste and told Loder to come down to anotuer hotel immedi ately and see a young man dance. Loder thought he was being made the subject of a joke, but went along. Sure enough there was a fellow dancing in the oilice of one of the cheap hotels for cigars. He was less than twenty years of age and said he was wording iu a livery stable round the corner. "Let's see you dance," said Loder, and the young man who was Couwell, and was dressed just as he appeared last night on the -stage, even tu the shoes, complied readily tor a cigar. Loder was pleased and took Con well to the opera house where he had the musi cal director play for him ou the piano. Conwell is a pleasant young fellow but he has loafed about livery stables ia the winter aad been a teat hand with country circuses ia the summer long enough to become very touh. The piauist was playing "piano," but it didn't suit Conwell wno wanted it faster. 'Aw, don't play dat so piccolo; see?" he said with the customary wave of the hand. "This is piano," said the pianist "Aw, wat ye givin' me? Don't ye spose I know a piano wen I sees one? But don't pluj- it so pftccolo." Gradually the piauist found out what Conwell meant and the two got along better. Conwell was surprised to find himself engaged on the spot. He was to have had a small part but it was discovered that he couldn't remember the shortest kiud of a line more than two raiuu es so he was made property man aad is allow ed to say anything he pleases, when he comes on for his speciality in the third act. Loder is enthusiastic about him and says he will make the best buck and wing dancer in tiie business. Loder is at work oa a new piece that he will put oa iu January and may bring it back here the latter part of the aeasou. Five new people wull join the company next 3ionday and the rehearsals will be gin. Among them are the McCoy sis ters, who ma la such a hit iu IIoyiVTrip to Chinatown."

Uleetion Keturns Must I5e Iteportetl in tiie froper Way. The secretary of state is having much trouble in getting the election returns reported to his office in the proper way. Heretofore the only return made to the secretary of state has beau a general ab et ract of the total vote cast in each county for each candidate. This year the secre tary of state ordered each county clerk to forward a complete abstract of the vote as cast by precincts so that any ir regularities in' counting might be cor rected by the state board of canvassers. Some of the county clerks are refusing to comply with this request but the necessity of such returns is shown by the errors in some of the abstracts re turned. In the abstract from one county there were six distinct errors iu the footiug of the total votes and the vote for one can didate was omitted entirely. There have been errors in the ab stracts from not less than six counties on a very close election, the correction of these errors would very likely change the result. If these complete abstracts are made to the secretary of state a steal of votes iu the official count would be al most impossible, as the complete vote of every precinct iu the state would show for itself and any discrepancy could easily be detected.

Tida Story That Major Morrill Owns $35,000 Stock IS THE KANSAS CITY " TIMES.' John JX. HnlTtue Kays There 1 X Truth In It aad Sever Was Mr. Slul vane Once Held 10,000 Himself But Ha Disposed of It. Major E. N. Morrill, governor-elect, is not a part owner of the Kansas City Times as reported. A story has been going the rounds of the political gossips to the effect that a controlling baterest in the Kansas City Times was owned by John 14. Muivane, Major E. N. Morrill and Major Calvin Hood and the P. B. Plumb estata According to the gossips Mr. Muivane owned $ 20,000 worth of stock and Major Morril. I'oo.OOO worth of stock in the Times. To a State Journal reporter Mr. Muivane said when asked about the matter: "No, I do not own any stock in the Time3 now, although I had at one time an interest in that paper but it nev er amounted to f 2 J, 000. I had flO.OOO worth of stock, but I disposed of it last summer. "The story about Major Morrill being interested in the Times is a pure fabrica tion. He never did and does not now own a one cent interest iu that paper. If he did, I would know it and you may say positively for me that he is not and never has been in any way interested in the Times. "Major Hood and the Plumb estate are not interested in the paper iu any way. 'T became interested in the limes in this way. Colonel Mum ford and I were always warm personal lriends and had been for twenty years. He frequently went out of his way to favor me. "Several times he went down to Jeffer son City and stayed several days looking after business matters for me, and he would never take one cent for his ser vices. "A few years ago when he became I hard up financially he came to me and I i helped him out by taking 10,000 worth of stock in the paper, which I held up to last summer, when I disposed of it."

At tea years Rubinstein went with his teacher to Paris, where he remained for two years, his performance at several con certs winning for him the advice and en couragement of Liszt. Rubinstein next visited England, Sweden and Germany aud in Berlin he studied composition under Dehu. Hav- ! niir completed ins course oi instruction. Rubinstein devoted himself for some time to teaching in Berlin aad later, to teaching ia Vienna. He returned to Russia afterward aud was appointed pianist to the Grand Duchess Helena.

In lbUO Alexander II ennobled the compo ber, and in 1877 France decorated him with the cross of the legion of honor. DEBS AG AIN HE All D FilOU II e Bays the lemocratii Party Xs suredly Dead. Milwaukee, Nov. 20. A Milwaukee member of the American Railway Union has received the following letter from Eugene V. Debs: "Of all the interviews I have seen, Governor Altgeld's is the only one that correctly states the causes that led up to the political revolution this fall. The Democratic administration, in its im placable hostility to labor in the interests of trusts, combines and corporatious, as dernoustrated during the trouble last summer, i3 what did the business. There were, of course, other causes, but this was the main, central, pivotal cause of Democracy's knockout. "The People's Party is here to stay, and in two years more will be fully equipped for the national contest. The Democratic party will never get into power again while you and I live. It had its golden opportunity ; it surrend ered to and did the bidding of the money power and the people of this generation will not trust in it again. 1 expect noth ing from the Republican party. It is notoriously the party of plutocracy, and the gold bugs will shape its policy and dictate its legislation."
