Paris Exposition Starts Off at Noon Today. A Yisit Equal to a Tour of the World, SAYS GENERAL PORTER Every Govern uient of Any Im portance Represented. 1'uited States Will Be Well Paid For Expenditure. Paris. April 14 At noon today France opened to the world the crowning ex position of all countries. The most fav orable weather conditions prevailed and Innunie.-able blight colored domes and minarets glistened in the sunshine. Paris war. early astir with people wending their way towards the F.lysee and in the direction of the exposition in the hope or witnessing the presidential procession at some part of its journey. All the public buildings and number less private houses were decorated with trophies of Hags, chiefly the tri-color. The neighborhood of the exposition was especially gay with bunting while most of the pavilions themselves were sur mounted with floating banners. Within the exposition grounds this morning all was bustle and animation in a supreme effort to clear away all un sightly obstacles in order to leave an unobstructed road and an external ap pearance of completeness to the palaces for the presidential party in its passage through the grounds. The tinishing touches were hastily given the mag eilfient Salle des Fetes. The aspect of the exposition has greatly improved even from that of yesterday although the installation of exhibits has natural ly, undergone little advance, the external -ff-et produced by the incessant labors of the past two days is already fine and decidedly picturesque. The unfinished condition of the expo sit ion on inauguration day is regrettable and perhaps misleading. It must be borne in mind that this is the only phase and on its completion within three weeks or-a month from now. the expo sition will indisputably be the moat at tractive and magnificentAyet seen. AMERICANS ARK PRO I'D. Americans, especially, are proud of their display at this world's fair, for the United States stands second only to Fiance herself in number of exhibit ors, which treble those of any fortign country. The following is a table of exhibitors which speaks eloquently of American enterprise: France, 30. 000; UnHed States. 6.5C4; F.elgium. 2,r00; Oermar.y, 2.0UO; Italy, 2.000; Russia. l.,r)00; Scandi navia. 1.400: Austria. 1,000; Great Tirit ain. GOO; the British colonies, 600. Amer ica has three times the number of ex hibitors that France had at the world's fair in Chicago. She occupies 32'. 052 square feet with her 47 distinct exhibi tion spaces. F.3 in main exposition grounds. 14 in trie Vincennes annex, in cluding the ground covered by our eagle surmounting the national pavilion, the Quai d'Orsay. American enterprise, however, is not only shown in the size of her represen tation but also in the preparedness of her installation as compared with that of most of the other countries and it can be safely said that but for the di latoi iness of : French workmen and methods the United States exhibits would have been exposed ih their show cases to today's visitors. Unfortunate ly French tardiness has hampered all American efforts to rush matters. Thus In most of our show- spaces every thing is prepared, the glass cases are ready to receive exhibits, but the Ameri can officials are afraid to display the valuable articles to the likelihood of ilam ase by the clouds of dust arising from work on the adjacent embryonic installa tion. AX OHJKCT LESSON. The highest testimonial to Americnn hood comes from Commissioner I'icipiart himself. Alter comparing the state of progress of the Installation of various nations, ho said to Commissioner General Peek: "it is an object lesson to us all, to see the American people work. I thank you for your promptitude and the advanced condition of work in the United States sections."

"Owing to the broad views and the public spirit early manifested by Presi dent McKinley regarding this enterprise and to the liberality of congress in pro viding means for organizing a credit able and attractive American section, our country has secured a representa tion which will arouse universal inter est. The increase in our commerce with European nations which will re sult in this systematic and extensive display of products will without doubt enlarge our foreign trade to such a marked degree that the country will be repaid many times for the wise ex penditures authorized by the govern ment. The friendly intercourse wfhich will take place between prominent and influential people from all lands will do much it is trusted to bring about better understandings between the countries and to foster that good will which is so necessary among nations in securing an era of harmony and peace." WHAT PECK SAID. United States Commissioner General F. W. Peck said: "The exhibits of the great interna tional exposition inaugurated today re- ilecling the arts, sciences and indus tries of the present age will be an achievement of heretofore unequaled perfection. At no other similar event have the nations of the world so elab orately and ambitiously participated. While artistical architectural effects are not lacking and the ensemble of the buildings and gardens will be bril liant, yet this exposition will be most noted for the exhaustiveness of its ex hibits and for the intelligence of their arrangement and the beatuty of their installation. A gold medal at Paris in li'00 will be a trophy of which any ex hibitor may be proud. It will mean supremacy over the best mankind can accomplish. "The United States will be represent ed by the largest number of exhibitors of any foreign nation and the awards for which our exhibitors will struggle will be a test of the quality of our rep resentation and will evidence the re ward of our achievements." LOUBET'S OPENING WORDS. President Loubet as he stood in the presidential tribune, surrounded by the members of the cabinet and his house hold opened the exposition with the words: "I declare the exposition of 1900 open." Thus was the Paris expo sition, designed to celebrate the world's entry into' the new century in augurated and shouts of "vive Loubet" and "vive la Republique" rose from his 4.000 hearers and silk hats were waved in the air.

MANY GOLD MEDALS. They Will Be Given For Target Practice. Companies to Have 3,000 Rounds of Ammunition. Since the Kansas National Guard has been reorganized and placed on a firmer and better basis than it has been on since before the -war, the powers which have direct charge of the organization are making additional efforts to stimu late interest and to develop the militia throughout the state. The guard for several years has been going into a steady decline whicli at one time threatened its complete de struction. Only a year ago several companies were mustered out of the service for inefficiency and incom petency, and now new companies are being placed only where there are suffi cient reasons to justify the opinion that a true military spirit will prevail In keeping them up. The annual inspection of the K. N. G. this year will take place in May and June at such dates as are best suited to the convenience of the commanding officers. The military department of the state has lixed the season for target practice from May 15 to November 30, the small arms practice to be under the rules and regulations provided by the noted tactician Col. James M. Rice. From these rules and regulations no devia tions will be permitted. Each company of the guard, for small arms practice, will have 3,000 rounds of ammunition. The adjutant general will recommend that at least -one week be devoted to target shooting. The state military department is offering liberal inducements to secure good work in target practice, the fol lowing medals having been provided for the work this year: A gold medal to the company having the highest company score. A gold medal to the company having the highest percentage of .attendance at target practice. A silver medal to the company having the second highest percentage of its members in attendance. A handsome gold medal will be given to the man making the highest indi vidual score. A silver medal is provided for the man making the second highest indi vidual score.

SENATORJURTIS, Our Congressman Plainly Work ing to Get Into the United States Senate. Charles Curtis is now evidently at work laying the foundation upon which he hopes to build an election as United States senator to succeed Lucien Baker. It has been admitted by the Curtis managers in Shawnee county that Mr. Curtis has an ambition to become United States senator, but it has not been said that he is doing any active work for the place at this time. Incidents which have transpired dur ing the past few days, however, indi cate that Mr. Curtis is how at work organizing his canvass for that .posi tion. A few weeks ago the politicians were discussing the fact that John Metsker, of Washington, D. C, had sent out a great number of letters to Kansas coun ties, asking for the names of the chair man and secretary of every county Re publican central committee in the state. The letter from Mr. Metsker also con tained an additional request for the names of the probable nominee and present list of candidates for the legis lature, both in the house and senate. A general flood of these letters at tracted the attention of the politicians, and an inquiry was made concerning their purpose. It was first ascertained tnat the expressed intention was to make use of the lists in mailing con gressional documents for the benefit of county headquarters. This theory, how ever, did not satisfy the wiseacres in the Republican- party, and a. request from the Republican managers of sev eral counties to a Kansas man in Wash ington caused an investigation to be made. It is now stated that a Kansas man who is in one of the departments at Washington, who is well acquainted with Metsker, called upon him and ob tained the admission that Metsker is managing the Curtis campaign for sen ator. . ' The report has come back to Kansas and the politicians are not at all surprised that Mr. Curtis has gone into this race. This fact bears out a statement made by Cyrus Iceland some months ago. Mr. Le land said, in substance, the following. "Mr. Curtis told me in Washington that he expected to be a candidate for the sen- atorship. He told me this as one of the reasons why he expected to fulfill the Horton agreement by which he was to refrain from entering the congressional race against Mr. Bailey. "Mr. Curtis not only told me of his in tention to run for senator, but stated that he would thereby tie out of Mr. Bailey s way in me congressional contest. When Mr. Leland came from Washing ton and told this to his friends they laugneti at nim. one ot them, a senator ial possibility, said in the presence of a journal reporter to air. jeiand: "Cy, you are talking wild again." "Wait-and see." replied Mr. Leland. with his customary smile. "Mr. Curtis will be in the race for senator just the same." Some of the politicians again laughed at Leland, who said: "Mr. Curtis not only told me he would be in tne race, but asked me to help him. .uany incidents nave been reported around the corridors of the state house and the Copeland leading the politicians to conclude that Mr. Curtis is working to develop a sentiment which he will later work upon In his candidacy for L nited States senator. At this time the circumstances would seem to justify the statement that Mr. Curtis is now a candidate to succeed Sen ator Baker, in the event the victory for Baker or Burton is not overwhelming. In that event Mr. Curtis will try again, when the time comes to choose "a succes sor to Senator Harris, provided of course. the Republicans have the control of the legislature. Friends of Mr. Curtis may deny that he seeks this honor, but the tact is he wants it and is after It. SEATS IN CAPITOL SQUARE, Woman's Club Undertakes a Meri torous Work. The Woman's club, of Topeka, which is engaged in various forms of char itable work as well as literary, has taken up a new line, and decided to seat Capitol square. The ladies realize that it takes time to lay out parks and make them ready for use, and they think that these grounds may be pro vided with seats for the benefit of the public at very little expense. In the four corners of the grounds where the walks curve are places where seats may be placed without injury to the grass. ; They would even add to the appearance of the grounds, besides be ing a convenience for visitors. The ladies intend to lay the matter before Governor Stanley, but if they fail to secure the desired financial aid they will raise the money themselves to pro vide the- seats. ' F1ME.ST" OP PASUS . WELCOME DEWEY Bryan Democratic Press Com mittee Bulletin Accepts the Admiral's Profes sion of Faith. IF NOT NOMINATED He Is Expected to Abide by the I Results And Wheel Into Line'in Support of Bryan. Chicago, April 14. Bryan Democrats have decided to welcome Admiral Dew ey into the Democratic party. Such is the position officially outlined in to day's issue of the Democratic press bul letin. "We may accept the admiral's declar ation of his political faith as indicating that he is with the Democratic party at least on an overwhelming majority of the issues it has taken up, runs the article which is from the pen of Wil lis j. Abbott, head of the Democratic iterary bureau. "This is a most grat ifying fact." the article continues. "It indicates that should the Democratu party after mature deliberations deny to the admiral the nomination which he seeks, it may nevertheless count on his co-operation and his influence in behalf of its efforts to end the ev ils of McKinleyism by ending the reign ot tne Emperor W llliam I. On commenting on the purport of his article Mr. Abbott said: "We are nat urally delighted at the prospect of such a distinguished acquisition to our ranks as Admiral Dewey, but of course we expect the admiral to 'plav fair' and accept the good old Democratic doctrine of abiding by the result of an hone3t Democratic convention. BUT 25,000 MEN. TransvaalCommissioner's State ment of Boer Strength. Rome, April 14. Nothing Is known here in corroboration of the report pub lished abroad that Count Von Buelow, the German minister of foreign affairs, had visited'the Transvaal peace envoys at Milan and the story is not cred'ted. The Portuguese . minister, Senor De Carvalho Vasconcellos, however, has gone to that city. An interview is published here in which Jonkherr Abram Fischer, one of the Transvaal commissioners, is al leged to have declared that the South African republics were willing to make. any sacrifice in order to preserve their liberty and independence. They did not wish, he declared, to add to their territory, but merely to retain it and to live peacefully at home. The republics, he continued, had only 25,000 soldiers and Great Britain was exaggerating the numbers in order to magnify her vic tories. The interview then adds: "At this moment Jcnkherr Fischer received a telegram and on reading it he exclaimed, 'Good news from Africa. START FOR THE HAGUE. Milan. April 14.

Lord Methuen is at Sewartkopfontein, 12 miles east of Boshof. and is sending small, swift columns through the adja cent country. Lord Chesham, command ing one of these, encountered a small commando about ten miles southeast of Sewartkopfontein. He found most of the farms occupied by women and children only. An editorial note in the Daily Mail avers that Mafeking is in a very bad way and that the hope of relief is far off as no force is advancing from the south. NEWS BRIEFS.

A number of miners, variously estimated at from two to sixteen, are imprisoned in the Essen No. 3 mine at Hazelton station, be hind a wall of flame and smoke. They were caught yesterday by the fire, and all last night men fought the flames and women waited in helpless agony about the pit mouth. State Mine In spector James Black, of Idlewood, is on the scene, and has very little hope that any of the men will come out of the mine alive. The smoke and gas have probably done their deadly work before now. Tho Essen mine is fourteen miles from Pittsburg on the Pittsburg, Char tiers & Youghiogeny railroad. It is owned by the Pittsburg Coal company. A miner named John Govers. who forced his way out through the fire and smoke, said that two companions still remain in the mine, but they would not attempt to dash through the hre. The miners report that sixteen men have not been accounted for and the superintendent of the mines admits that two foreigners are missing. Owing to the uncertainty regarding names among the foreigners who form the large part of the miners, it is said to be very hard to determine whether or not all of them are out. The fire was started in the pump house, between the main entry and the return course. tne cause being unknown. Inspector Black and men worked all last right. Essen No. 3 was formerly the prop erty of the Essen Coal company, which sold out to the Pittsburg Coal com pany when that company was organ ized. It is a comparatively new mine and well equipped. Its annual output is about 185,000 tons. It is located a short distance from Woodville on the Chartiers branch of the Pan Handle railroad. Hazleton station is rather an isolated place, being reached directly only by the Pittsburg, Chartiers & Youghiogeny railroad, the passenger service on which is limited to three or four trains each way in twenty-four hours. George W. Schlendeberg, general sup erintendent of the Pittsburg Coal coni pany stated at 2 o'clock this afternoon that the fire was under control. Only two men are missing and it has not been determined that they are in the mine. AMERICANS RETREAT Before an Attack of Filipino Insurgents. Manila, April 14.
