CnirAQO, Oct. 23. For Kansas: Fair

Where were all the federal office
holders when Governor Waite called for
defenders of the Democratic party?
Xow that the Corbett-Fitzsirumons
matter is settled the public cm give
more attention to that little affair be
tween Uncle Sam and John Bull.
SrscE there are more old soldiers in
Bhawuee county than in any other county
in the state, Topeka is certainly the
proper place to hold the G. A. II state
The Cleveland syndicate which is be
ing organized to go out and capture the
sugar planting business of the Hawaiian
island?, are likely to find a iarge sized
obstruction to their scheme in the person
of Claus Spreckels when they get there.
Encouraged by the success of the
Arkausas authorities in arresting and
holding Pugilist Corbett, the New Or
leans police force has arrested a number,
of the officers of the s'ate militia for
fil ing their guns within the city limits.
Holding two offices at once ha3 so
undermined John M. Thurston's health
that he was unable to make any speeches
for his party in the Nebraska campaign
this year. lie was able, however, to
make a plea for his client, the Union Pa
cific railroad before a San Francisco
court. There is evident need of reducing
the length of the senatorial term.
SSexatok Tellf.r is showing signs of
making trouble in tho Republican party
if his silver views are not adopted. It
may be said that the Colorado senator is
acting from self interest in the matter,
but it happens in this instance that his
personal interests are aiso the best in-t-rests
of almost the entire population
ui- the cuuntrv.
The Emporia "Umbrella" has been
closed up and will be succeeded by the
Columbian Magazine, which will be
issued semi-monthly by the McCor i-Up-bam
Printing Co. It is up bill work for
anything in the nature of a magazine to
succeed in a small city, but some of them
do in a limited way, and this venture
may be nu:nb?red among the winners.
If the principles of the Democratic
party are as "plain and explicit" as
Senator Hill says they are, it seems as
though the memb-jrs of the party should
be able to come to some agreement
about what was meant by their Chicago
platform. Tho lack of unanimity of
opinion among Democrats regarding the
proper interpretation of that document
is really distressing.
If all the men who do not support
th;?ir families are to be sent to the insane
asylum lurge additions to the capacity of
those institutions will shortly be neces
sary. A more sensible plan would seem
to be to send the family to the asylum
where they would not need the care of
the husband and father. This plan is
practicable, too, since no evidence of i 1
sauity seems to be needed to secure a
commitment in Shawnej county at least.
Secretary Carlisle's order closing
the mints to any further coinage of silver
is probirbly caused by the recent advance
In the price of silver bullion. Havinj
, got silver down it must be kept down at
all hazards so the fifty cents dollar can
be usad as an argument. If the white
metal had continued to advance in the
market until it reached $1.29 an ounce
there would no longer be any excuse for
not coining it. The closing of the mints
to silver will make little difference in a
practical way as very little was being
coined but the moral effect Is expected
to ba far reaching in depressing its value
in the markets of the world. There will
probably be a decline" in the price and
then Mr. Carlisle and his fellow gold
bugs will say: Would you have a cur
rency of anything so unstable as this?
The State Journal published an edi
torial paragraph recently in which at
tention was called to the fact that all the
schemes of the bankers for reforming
the currency have for their central idea
the retirement of the greenbacks. Mr.
J. W- Forest, a banker of Thayer, Kan.,
writes to say that he is an exception to
this rule.' There are doubtless many
more besidesMr. Forest. Reference to
bankers individually was not Intended.
It was the action of their conventions and
association meetings to wh.ic'h attention
was directed. Mr. Forest tthea states
that he favors th6 demonetization of both
gold and silver and the substitution
therefor of a legal tender paper cur
rency. He has original ideas on cur
rency which cannot be presented here
and which are worthy of consideration
a id he would doubtless furnish a .copy
of his plan to any one who will take the
trouble to write to him.
The determination of the, people of
Perry, Okla., to keep the cashier of the
burst bank of that town in jail is. com
mendable. He was letTut on $3,000
bond and was immediately" placed under
arrest on another charge and his bond
fixed at $2,500, which he seems unable
to secure. This bond business affords
an excellent means for criminals to es
cape the penalty of their crimes. The
best way of all, however, to treat all
persons accused of crime is to try them
at onoe. It would save much trouble
and expense and the time spent in jail
when they are not bailed out could ap
ply on the sentence.

D. W. BOUT WELL'S BOOK.
He Is Selling It in Kusai Cllf Gets
The Kansas City War contains the
following about . VV. Boutwell and his
D. W. Boutwell, of Topeka, an old
Kansas veteran, who served as a dispatch
bearer during t ie latter part of the war,
ia in the city today. Mr. Boutwell now
haa in press a book, which he has writ
ten, telling how, when Kansas was in
danger of invasion by General Price's
army, he carried important dispatches
through the confederate Hues from Gene
ral De'zier to General Pleasanton, and
this enabled the latter to attack the con
federates in the rear, rout the forces, and
detnnt Price's plana for capturing Kan
n.e Ci y, Leavenworth, and other Kansas
Air. Boutwell played a thrilling part
during the war, and it is said his work
will be an interesting contribution to
war literature. He now has a claim be
fore the pension department for a pen
sion for his services as dispatch bearer.

To the Editor of the State Journal:
I trust you will pardon rr.e, but I so
thoroughly endorsed tha article on the
first paije of a recent issue under the
head "Can Joints Run," it being the first
thing I read, that I nearly sprang to my
feet in the very high appreciation I read
it and involuntarily exclaimed, "Good
for the Joureai."
Now sir, if every temperance man and
woman in Kansas or even in Topeka,
alone will be lirm and outspoken, we
can shape the future history of not only
this state, but of this great and wonder
fully growing country; the balance of
power is on our aide and the good of hu
manity demands it, I do wish that every
reader in this great commonwealth of
Kansas could read that article so full
of the tru ring and know it was in the
Topeka Journal, a paper that dares to
stand up for the right and is alway3 out
spoken on the temperance queBtion,
wtiile so many papers in this state will
not do it, even if they are advocates, for
mere policy and politics sake.
Long live the Jocrnal I hope it will
never cease to grow.
Youra kindly and mo3t respectfully,
J. T. S.

Guy Pier ha3 roturned to Topeka
after serviugr a year's sentence in the
penitentiary at Lansing.
iJ 13 time was up this week. It was
shortened somewhat by his excellent be
havior. Pier was sent there for com
mitting thefts, in some of which Jud
Nicholson, now an actor, was involved,
but afterward cleared.
The penitentiary, it seems, has proven
a good thing for Pier.
