Washington, June 1$. "American troops will remain in Cuba indefinitely and probably permanently." This was the emphatic declaration of a tabir.et ""idal to-lay, in ansavr to a Tresp-mJsiit's question as ti the fu ture policy of the administration to ward Cuba now that the elections had passed eft' satisfactorily and without disturbance. "There is a strong- impression," con tinued the official, "about the with drawal of our troops from Cuba. The statement has been frequently made :nd widely circulated that with the Cu ban eief tions uver steps wouid be inl ine iiateiy taken to ret ail the larer portion of our troops and that ir the .-ry near future the American flag would be haul- 1 down, ali of the forces withdrawn and the island turned over to the t 'ui'iip "it migr.r just as well be understood row as at any other time that no such poii-.v is possible. Probably, after a constitutional convention has been heltl and a civil independent government f stabiis'n-d. a portion of the 9.'V troops row in the island may be withdrawn. Hut American, troops, if only a regi ment, will remain in Cuba for many yars to come. This does not mean that the administration contemplates the annexation of "u'oa. On th' con trary, the continued presence of troops in the island will tend to assure the stability of an independent government and thereby stave off annexation." This statement is significant in that It clearly demonstrated the purpose of President Mi Kinley to advocate a per manent Ameriean protectorate over Cuba. Wni!" many believe that Cuban annexation is inevitable. President Mc Kiniey will adhere to the protectorate policy and a!i.w future administrations to deal with the annexation question. TRIALS OF A MAYOR. Letters Received in a Single Mail and Their Queer Requests. Mayor Drew- received five letters in Saturday afternoon's mail which were a little more peculiar than the average it'.thnugh not mu'h. fr he has received some very odd epistles. There is usual ly a stamp enclosed for reply so he. fee's hound to answer. The first letter was from a young laCv who asked bluntly how much sal.irv he cot. She wanted to know in order to "ie a dispute. ne wanted to know if a certain well known business house was e-o.ul for a case of egs; another v.ar.ted a py of the city charter an 1 ne sent him a dun with the request that he hand it to a collector. The really bright cne came from Kan sas City and asked "if his ordinance allowed games of chance, shell s?m-s nr.d other 1-eitimate games to run in th- town." The "sport" wound up his lett-r by stating that "if so we wid Cvme up and donate our ante." One Fare For Rough Eiders, For the arnual reunion of Roosevelt's Rough.

Prepared enly bv The Dr J. 11. McLcau Medicine Company, St. Louis, lio. u A mis M At? RflILBOflDilEWS, Infusion of New Blood and Kail road Progress. One JDoes Not Necessarily Mean the Other. DAGGER IN CHANGES. Radicalism Likely to Tate the Place of Conservatism. Recoirds Are Sometimes Hade With Injury to Railroads. The past few months have been re markable as a period of general turning o er and shaking up of railway staffs, says the Railway Review. An unprece dented number of heads of departments have been changed, since effort has been made to energize the corps of each department by the infusion of new blood, and there seems to be a general awakening to the fact that good enough is not sutficient that men, are required in each department who have a peculiar talent for their particular avocation that talented men are a positive divi dendial necessity, and as such, are worthy of their hire. This is as It should be, sn;e such general upheaval has in many cases aftorded the man of real ability a chance to exhibit his qualifi cations. All this is a very- desirable state of affairs one which is a matter of con siderable gratification to those interest ed in the progress of railway manage ment and operation one which enables many able men l bring their iight out from under the bushel and permits them to produce most satisfactory and even unhoped-for results. But is it not possible that steps too far in this di rection, mav be taken? Can not the pendulum be swung toward radicalism, beyonc; the point of possible improve ment, to as undesirable a degree as it has hung back in the other direction on the old-fogy side of conservatism? And too great radicalism cause a dis ruption and demoralization of an en tirely efficient department? Good men are hard to find. Xew blood does rot always mean better work. Simply setting a department in an up roar docs not insure efficient results any more than a smooth and quietly run ning department signifies dry rot. - In many cases there seems to be a. cycle in which department li-es revolve. The motive power statistics show that a new man on a neighboring line is apparent ly running his department on a little less money. The result of an inquiry brings out the fact that cur man is disinclined to sac rifice the best interests of his depart ment according to his views, to a strife for records. His department is running smoothly, the men are satisfied, the roll ing st'Xk is in good condition, and all I work is well in hand. It has taken some time to bring about this state of affairs and he is disinclined to fall behind again merely in order to compete with the new man on the neighboring road who has a record to make. Such a spir it is thought to plainly show that he is not in sympathy with the management: he is too conservative; he is superseded by a r.eiv man. The new man is clever, he knows that he is put there to make a record, he sees that everything is in such good shape that the rolling stock will hold up for -six months before commencing to fall down on the road. He reduces the force and all possible expenses, he knows that such a course is folly be cause it will take a year to gtt the pow er back into shape, but he also knows that if he does not reduce the expenses he will be considered to be incapable. He also knows that by this foolish course he is enabled to reduce the ex penses and thus make a record for those first -iix months that will cause him to be regarded as a first-class man. and accordingly his actions in increasing the experses after that, in order to get the rolling stock back into shape, will not course and gets along all right for a few years. Then acall ismade upon him to re duce again; he feels by this time he has cause much question. He follows this demonstrated his ability, he is disin clined to carry his department through another such sapping process, and stands upon his judgment in regard to the best interests of his department. The result is another change and anoth er cycle is begun. FOR THE CONVENTION". San ta Fe and Rock Island Will Take Thousands Into Kansas City. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway has a very large ecuipment, but it has such a network of lines within 2S0 miles of Kansas City, where Brvar.'s admirers are thick, that its special train service on July 4 will be enormous. There will be special trains from J"ewton. Krnporia, Coffeyville and points nearer to Kansas City. Just how maiy special trains must be run the officers do not know, but they have a few facts to figure on. The Kansas man iovc-s to travel, he' likes to go where the big crowds will be, and if it is a political convention so much the better. This year he has money and a prospect of more. Consequently there is every reason for expecting that on the morning of July 4 eastern Kansas will turn out in a body. To meet his emergency the Santa Fe wi l work as many of its passenger coaches as possible into the neighbor hood of Kansas City Sunday and Mon day before the convention. When a regular train pulls in on the morning of July before breakfast a fresh en cine w:'I be hitched to the coaches and thei" will be run back 75 to 100 mi les. and a fresh crowd w ill be brought to Kansas City by 10:30 or 11 oVIock. About 10 o'clock at night reg ular and extra trains will be put on An extra train will leave for Newton about 11 o'clock and cn its arrival at Xewton another engine wtil be hitched on the other end and back the same cfirs will come, picking up a fresh load. Thousands who will come in the morn- ing will g. home the evening of the same day. and a fresh crowd will come t ne next day. The HiTk Island is in about the same condition, only it does not spread out ever so much territory in eastern Kan sas. Its lines run through good terri tory w ithin 200 miles of Kansas City, and though it can't do local business nearer than Topeka it will have as tnar.y people to care for as its coaches nil! catr;- and coaches will be made to do extra service. The Rock Island has contracts for half a dozen trains of Pullmans, many of the cars to be used as sleeping quarters for passen gers. PRESIDENTS' NEW PLAN. Special Agents Appointed to Investi gate Rate Cutting. Kansas City, June IS. One of the principal features of the plan by which the western presidents hope to conserve revenues and prevent rate-cutting has been made cublic The Kansas City committee at Its meeting decided upon a course of action similar to the one ta ken by the St. Louis committee, and which, it is understood, will be followed by the other committees.The idea which is being worked out is to appoint a traf fic agent for each committee, whose du ty it will be to keep track of the rate situation and to run down and thor oughly investigate every complaint made. These agents, whose titles have not been fixed, have practically been settled upon. The man who will handle the matter for the Kansas City committee is H. H. Courtwright, who is now chairman for the Western Trunk Line Freight asso ciation. Mr. Courtwright was selected without being consulted, but it is pre sumed that he w ill have no objection to acting. It is understood that he and the other agents who may be selected will employ from two to four experts in traf fic matters to aid them in gathering in formation and formulating reports. Mr. Courtwright will report to the chairman of the Kansas City committee, who is President Felton of the Alton, and through the committees the presidents and executive officers of the roads will be kept informed regarding the situa tion in general and in the various terri torial divisions. A SUCCESSFUL AFFAIR. Santa Fe Picnickers Spend a Pleasant Day at Lake Contrary. The Santa Fe shop men's picnic, which was held at Lakeside Park, St. Joseph, cn Saturday, was as usual a Dig success. The attendance was something over 2,000. The first section of the excursion train left the Topeka depot at 6 o'clock and arrived in St. Joseph at about 9. The other two sec tions arrived by 30 o'clock. The day s festivities started off with the ball game in the morning. The game was between the "Reds" and the "Rounders." It was a one-sided game from the start, the Reds winning by a'score of 13 to 6. A prize was offered to the ball player making the best average. In this con test three men tied. They were Sulli van, Thompson and Sherman. Sherman won the contest on a draw. The 100-yard foot race, the standing broad jump, the running broad jump and the standing high jump were each won by George Sherman. The prizes were a silk shirt, a pair of silk sus penders, a silk umbrella and a $3 hat. In the 100-yard foot race, apprentice class, the prize, a box of cigars, was given to Walter Tasker. A silk parasol and a pair of shoes were given respectively to Miss Martha Miller and Mr. Lloyd Conklin as prizes in. the waltzing contest. The prizes in the cake walking con test were won by Mrs. T. E. Wilcox and Thomas E. Hannisan. Thev were a pulley belt set and a box of cigars. Everything passed off pleasantly and no accident occurred to spoil the pleas ure of the picnickers. The trains bear ing the pleasure seekers returned at about 10 o'clock. The committee on arrangement was composed of James McNeal, Robert Wells, and Charles T. Cross. The gen era! committee was as follows: John Esplin. Ed McCurney, Ed Bressett, Rolla Stockwell, A! Coin. Charles Cross, Frank Kinsey. R. S. Stockwell. Frank Dickson, Judson Coe, Dee Alexander, Will Dwyer. Archie Baughman. Wil liam Hoeck, Joe Bliveans, James JIc Xeal, John Ruple, Robert Wells. Formal Transfer to Santa Fe. Independence. Kas., June IS. The Kansas, Oklahoma Central & South western railroad, running from this place to Collinsville, I. T.. about sixty miles south of here, is to be sold at public sale on June 30. This road was commenced as an independent line by private parties, the prime mover be ing Col. Sam Porter, of Caney. who went to England and interested several English capitalists in the enterprise. Some St. Louis parties were also con nected with the building of the road. It was mortgaged for $583,432. and un der tins mortgage will be sold. The Santa Fe assumed control of the line last year and will purchase it at the sale. Santa Fe trains have been run out of here over the new line as far as Bartlesville for about ten months. Faith, in StilweLL Officials of the St. Paul mad evi dently have faith in A. E. Stilwell'9 ability to build the Kansas City. Mex ico & Orient road. It is stated that a close traffic agreement, to be in force for fifteen years after the completion of the new road, has been entered into between the St. Paul officials and Mr. Stilwell. The latter has secured his J. 000 .000 concession from the Mexican government, and work has been begun in grading. Railroad Y. M. C. A. Rally. The Railroad X. M. C. A. member ship rally promises to grow quite ex citing. Xew members are coming in quite rapidiy. They have the same privilege in contesting ror the watch as the old members. The watch which will be given as a prize to the one securing the greatest number of new members has been donated for this purpose by a Chicago firm. It was se cured through the kindness of the gen eral watch inspector of the Santa Fe, H. S. Montgomery. Storing Coal at Newton. The work cf unloading storage coal by the Santa Fe in Xewton is progress ing rapidiy. Ten thousand tons will be unloaded at this place, the same as is being unloaded at the other" points se lected for storing coal. Last week 2.500 tons were unloaded in Xewton. At this rate it will consume the greater part of three weeks in unloading the 10,000 tons. New Gumbo Field. Solomon, Kas., June IS. The Union Pacific has found the gumbo in the Smoky Hill bottoms east of Abilene unfit for making good ballast and has decided to begin burning the gumbo near here if land can be purchased. The gumbo is said by the road's ex perts to be fully equal to that at St. Marys or in the eastern Kaw valley. A large force of men will be put to work. $10,000,000 For Steel Cars. Orders for new steel cars and for car supplies of this nature now in course of fulfillment aggregate in value some thing like $10,000,000, says the Railway and Engineering Review. The total number of pressed steel cars that have been produced or are ordered up to the present time is 26.412. To make these some 400,'XO tens cf steel has been, or is being used, and this has cost, as raw material, market charges considered, about $15,000,000. Santa Fe Asks Injunction. San Francisco, Cal., June IS. C. X.

Orient Road Subscription. San Angelo. Tex., June IS. The sub scription list for the Kansas City. Mex ico & Orient railway has been started here. The first six subscriptions amount to $15,000. ROOSEV ELTSTAFslPEDE. tContinued from First Patre. would not be the case, and was using every effort to change the sentiment. He said to the Associated Press: "My place is at the head of the ticket in Xew York state. 1 feel that Mr. Hanna is right, and that I can do more to heip Mr. McKinley by running in Xew York state than I can by being on the national ticket." There were several rumors last night that Roosevelt had at last agreed to stand for the nomination. These rumors probably arose from the fact that he had said that, if his nomination was finally forced, he could not decline it, but he said emphatically that he would not allow Mr. Piatt to present his name and would fight against the nomination to the last minute. The attention both of delegates and other visiting politicians yesterday was concentrated upon the movement in the interest of Governor Roosevelt as a vice presidential candidate. The Pennsyl vania delegation met early in the day and it was soon announced that the state delegation had taken a positive position for the governor for second place on the ticket. The announcement was soon followed by the statement which was made upon excellent author ity that Colonel Quay and Senator Piatt and . pthers in sympathy w ith them had held a conference and had decided -upon a. pian of campaign,-w hich was intended to bring Roosevelt to the front as a candidate, stampede the con vention for him and force his accept ance of the nomination. Among others who were taken into the confidence of Quay and Piatt was Xational Committeeman Sanders, who has been doing zealous work in bringing over the intermountain states to the support of Roosevelt's candidacy. Sen ator Penrose of Pennsylvania, and Sen ator Wolcott of Colorado, are both in the movement, and the managers are claiming the votes not only of the Xew Y"ork and Pennsylvania delegates, but of California, Kansas, Xebraska, Colo rado, Indiana and Illinois, as well as of many others. All this, of course, is on the supposition that the favorite sons will be eliminated from the right. Colonel Quay announced himself as for Roosevelt because of his confidence that the governor's nomination would secure the success of the Republican ticket,, but there are those and they are not enemies of the colonel who announced the belief that his position is the result of antagonism on his part to Senator Hanna, chairman of the na tional committee. It was said that Quay still remembered that the Ohio senator had cast his influence against him in the senate by gubernatorial ap pointment. It was asserted by those in a position to know that Roosevelt's acceptance in case of his nomination was assured, but this was not put upon stronger ground that that Senator Piatt had given his assurances. There can be no doubt, however, regardless o Roosevelt's own position, that he is to be the Piatt-Quay candidate, and they feel safe in the confidence that he will not decline the office if it is forced upon him. The development in Mr. Roose velt's behalf had the effect of bringing former Secretary Buss conspicuously forward as the opposing candidate, and the fact was announced by those very- close to him that he would accept if nom inated. From the first, Senator Hanna and his followers have advocated the nomination of either Bliss or Allison. The latter has made his own declina tion absolutely unequivocal, thus fore ing Bliss to the front, despite his own disinclination to accept the position. He repeated today his desire to be relieved of the responsibility, but his friends left him with the knowledge that if the nomination should be tendered.it would not be declined. "I don't want to say- that I will not accept before the tender is made, for that wouid be prema ture." he said, "but I do say, for the hundredth time, that I hope the right man will be found for the place, and I will not be asked to serve. On the oth er hand." he added, after no little en treaty. "I will not say that If nominated I would decline. I know of no American who has ever declined so high an office, and I shall not say that I would do so." Upon this assurance Mr. Bliss' friends went forth with renewed cour age. They accepted this declaration as a positive willingness to enter the con test, and they lost no time in letting the fact be known. The Pennsylvania delegation will meet today at 3 o'clock, when it is un derstood a resolution will be adopted declaring in favor of Roosevelt. It is stated that at least fifty-eight of the sixty-four delegates from this state will be for Roosevelt. Colonel Quay gave an interview to the Associated Press, in which he said: "I do not know what Pennsylvania will do. as all of the delegates have not yet arrived here. I have looked over the situation, and find there is nothing else in view except the election of McKinley. I intend to vote for Governor Roosvelt for vice president. The election or de feat of McKinley is a question of $500, 000.000 to Pennsylvania, and I will cast my vote on the vice presidency in the interest of my state to strengthen Mc Kinley. "I know nothing at all about what is going to happen in the convention. This is merely my individual view." In connection with the movement among the Pennsylvanians to further the nomination of Roosevelt, Attorney General John P. Elkin, the leader of the Quay forces in the state, said: "A candidate for the vice presidency should be nominated who will strengthen the ticket. The strongest candidate with the American people today is Mr. Roose velt. He is the best votegetter by far of all the gentlemen named for second place. "Roosevelt is the idol of the young Republicans of the whole country and. as governor of Xew York, he has dem onstrated that he possesses a high or der of executive ability. He is able, progressive, patriotic and conservative. The Republicans of Pennsylvania are a unit for his nomination. Our delega tion will vote for him and I have r.o doubt that he will be nominated. Col onel Roosevelt is too good a Republican not to accept the nomination if his party demands it. With McKinley and Roosevelt as our standard beareis we will sweep the country in November." BOOM FOR PAYNE. New York Congressman Believed by Some to Be Piatt's Real Choice. Xew York, June IS. Today a new vice presidential boom was launched at the Fifth Avenue hotel. Its owner is Congressman Sereno E. Payne, of Auburn, chairman of the ways and means committee of the house of rep resentatives. Mr. Payne started for Philadelphia early this morning. ,leav ing his boom in the hands of friends. John F. Farkhurst, judge of the court cf claims, w ho is a member of the Re publican state committee, seemed to be the chief Payne boomer. He said: "Of all the candidates so far men tioned for the vice presidential nomina tion Mr. Payne is plainly the most available. He has served eight or nine years in congress, is chairman of the chief committee of the house of repre sentatives and ' the Republican leader on the floor and he has a national repu tation." Judge Parkhurst is a delegate to the convention. He has alwavs been a friend of Senator Piatt and his remarks are regarded by the Republicans as significant. Mr. Payne was a candidate for the speakership of the house of represen tatives last year, but withdrew when it became apparent that Republicans all over the country favored David B. Henderson. . . HANNA BOOMS BLISS. But Senator Tom Piatt Says New York Doesn't Want Him. Chicago. June IS. The Times-Herald has received the following special wire from Walter Wellman at Philadelphia, narrat ing now buss is m the race again with Hanna booming him: It looks like Bliss! Four vpsrs ae-r thft Republican national programme was "Mc- xviuie iuiu rrospenty. n o w tne cnanees axe more than fair that this vear it will read McKinley and Bliss. Which is alto gether according to the eternal fitness of things In the estimation of the faithful. The surprise of the day was the dis covery that Cornelius X. Bliss, the Xew York merchant who was formerly a mem ber of President McKinley's cabinet, had enanpea ms mind about tne vice presi dency and is now willing to accept the honor. This discovery, which for the mo ment, upset all previous calculations and shattered all slates, was made immed iately after Mr. Bliss' arrival. Mr. Biiss declined to be interviewed, saying quite enough had already t n said upon the subject. But it is known beyond peradventure to the administration leaders that Mr. Bliss is now in a receptive mood. Two months ago he informed President McKinley and Mr. Hanna that under no circumstances would he accept the nomination. His rea sons were private his wife's health, his own business. Senator Hanna was as much surprised Cornelius as anyone vhen he heard the news of Mr. Bliss' chi.nge of mind. Vp to 6 o'clock last evening Mr. Hanna had had no hope that Mr. Bliss would consent to the use of his name. He so informed his lieuten ants and his most intimate friends. So thoroughly convinced of this was Mr. Hanna that he was making plans to checkmate Mr. Piatt's little games with an administration movement for Secre tary Long or Representative Doiliver. Mr. Hanna was amazed and delighted when he heard that Mr. Bliss might now be considered available. His face lighted up as he exclaimed: "That settles it!" "But Senator Piatt will not let the Xew York delegation go to Mr. Bliss." "I don't care what Tom Piatt says or does. If Bliss will take it, we will nomin ate him with or without the support of Xew York." At this time Senator Hanna had not had a talk with Mr. Bliss. Shortly after his arrival in town the latter sent word ti Mr. Hanna that he was here and wanted a conference, but by a mistake Mr. Hanna did not get the message. The senator from Ohio and his warm personal friend and the probable vice presidential nominee of this year did not. therefore, meet un til tonight at the Union League club din ner in Mr. Hanna's honor. Tomorrow, ir. all probability. Mr. Bliss' acceptarce and Mr.- Hanna's" intention to see that he is nominated with or without Xew York is likely to become known to all the dele gates and boomers. Cornelius X. Biiss. the well-known Xew York merchant, and formerly secretary of the interior in the present administration, was President McKinley's and Mr. Han na's first choice for the vice presidency. Last fall he declined, and efforts to in duce him to reconsider meeting with fail ure, an arrangement was made by which Secretary cf War Root was to be the nominee." This was by Mr. Piatt's con sent, and harmony reigned. In December Mr. Root took himself out of the race, and it was again believed that Mr. Bliss would accept. Two months aeo he declined for the second time, and the administration then turned its atten tion to Senator Allison, who declined: to Secretary Long, who was made the re serve or" contingent candidate, and later encouragement was given to Mr. Doiliver. But there are still some preliminaries to tbe arranged, and Mr. Bliss' nomination can not vet be regarded as a certainty. Mr. Bliss attaches a condition to his con sent this being that he shall be civen the support of the Xew York delegation. Mr. Piatt says he will not support Mr. Bliss in the convention, and that Xew York has other plans. BOOM FOR GEN. WOOD. Governor of Cuba May Be Asked to Take Second Place. Havana, Cuba, June 18. The report was current here today in official circles that the Pennsylvania. Xew York, In diana, Iowa and Michigan and other western friends of Major General Leon ard Wood were seeking authority from him to spring his came on the Republi can convention in Philadelphia as a candidate for the vice presidency. It was said that the leaders cf the move ment anticipated the support of Roose velt boomers, the Greene element. Quay, Harrison and Clarke influence and also several Pacific and southern delega tions. Gen. Wood when approached on the subject was reticent, but it is under stood that he is waiting before giving his answer for the satisfactory outcoma of today's Cuban municipal elections. MADE WOODRUFF MAD. Tiny Tim" Leaves Hotel When Bliss Occupied Adjoining Rooms. Philadelphia, June IS. Mr. Hanna brought his candidate, Cornelius Bliss, over from Xew York during Saturday afternoon and undertook to place him on exhibition for the benefit of delegates who were in doubt as to the course they ought to pursue. Mr. Bliss, however, had his own ideas about the propriety of going on exhibi tion and declined to receive anybody.but intimate personal friends. He occupied a suite of rooms at the Bellevue Eext those occupied by Lieutenant Governor Woodruff. As soon as "Tiny Tim" heard who his neighbor was he rushed over to the. Walton, hired a suite of apartments on the fourth floor of that hotel and re moved his belongings there. Woodruff said afterward that the Bellevue was not big- enough ta hold two vice presi dential candidatea from one state. BOER ENVOYS ARRIVE. No Political Significance Attached to the Visit of the Burghers. Philadelphia, June 18. When the Re publican leaders left the Walton ,to at tend a banquet at the Union League club Saturday night the crowd in the rotunda of the hotel swarmed about Fischer, Wessels and Wolmarans, the Boer envoys, who had come to town to "see the fun," as they said. They were engaged instantly in argument, for there were Republicans there who were eager to combat the sturdy trio at ev ery point. The Envoys left Baltimore Friday night arid eapected to remain in this city until the close of the conven tion, but as thc-y could not get satisfac tory accommodations they w ill leave to day, presumably for the west. VICTORY FOR HANNA. Has an Elevator Boy in the Walton Hotel Discharged For Not Obeying. Philadelphia, June IS. Mark Hanna left a committee room on the tenth floor cf the Walton hotel today and stepped into the elevator. It happened to be the "express" cage, which means that the lift travels between the first and tenth floors only. The Ohio man wanted to be carried to the office, where the men were stand ing in crowds. The elevator boy re fused to break the rule. Hanna fumed a 'ifc-'A-r V-l N. Bliss. and gave way to fierce language in his effort to spare himself a tramp down the stairs. The boy was ob durate. The big man then walked. He told the clerk of his treatment and the clerk discharged the boy. This was one victory the boss achieved today. CLUB ARRIVALS. Two From Chicago and Three From Washington Get In. Philadelphia, June IS. The Hamilton club of Chicago. 100 strong, arrived and paraded through the principal streets on the way to their hotel. The club which displayed several gorgeous ban ners was neatly attired in black silk hats, each carrying an umbrella. The club was accompanied by a. band of 75 boys. The Marqoiette club of Chicago, 250 strong, reached here early today and went through to Atlantic City. Three Washington. D. C, clubs ar rived early. They were the Blaine In vincible Republican. 125 men; the W. Calvin Chase Republican club and the X. M. Parker Republican club. 150 men. Winfield Scott Hancock, marshal. BUSH AMBITIOUS. Ex-Secretary of State Is Candidate For Congress. When W. E. Bush, ex-secretary of state, moved from Topeka to Fort Scott and took charge of the Lantern, it was charged by some of his friends that he expected to go to congress from the Second district. This Mr. Bush denied, but he is now in danger of being struck by the congressional lightning and it is said that he is taking no precautions against such an occurrence. It all happened this way. Mason Pe ters backed into the race two weeks ago but his first retirement got the politic ians after him and he has announced in a letter his second refusal to make the race. Xow Bush has gotten into the game and the indications are that he will cut considerable figure in the canvass. SHELDON IN ENGLAND. People Interested in Lectures of the Topeka Pastor. London, June IS.

The first white man to set foot oa Utah soil, Father Silvestre Veles da Escalante, who reached the GREAT SALT LAKE on the 23rd day of Sept., 1776, wrote in his diary: "Here the cli mate is so delicious, the air so balmy, thai it is a pleasure to breathe by day and by night." The climate of Utah is one of the richest endowments of nature. On the shores of the Greaii Salt Lake especially and for fifty miles therefrom in every direction the climate of climates- is found. To enable persons to participate in these scenic and climatic attractions, and to reach the famous HEALTH, BATH ING AND PLEASURE RESORTS of Utah, the CKIOX PACIFIC has made a rate to OODEN and SALT LAKE CITY of one fare for the round trip, plus $2.00, from Missouri P.iver, to ba in effect June 21st, July 7th to 10th in clusive, July ISth, and Aug. 2d. Re turn limit Oct. 31, 1900. For full information, call on or ad dress, F. A. Lewis, City Ticket Agt., or J. C. Fclton, Depot Agent. the Republican nominee, won the day with a big majority, yet Martin believea that he is the strongest politically, aal thinks he could defeat Miller this year. Mr. Martin has been writing letters ta his Democratic friends throughout th district asking for their opinion as to the advisability of another try for thei nomination by him. Martin believed that the Democrats wouid be for him and has been somewhat surprised by tha result. The Democrats have, so it is reported, advised Martin to keep out bf the con test this year. One of the reasons fur this position is the fact that the candi dacy of Martin two years ago cause.! some friction among the f usionists. John Madden of Emporia was regarded as the logical candidate but he surrender ed his ambitions and gave way to Mar tin who was nominated by the two par ties and then went to defeat. There are men In the district now who claim that Madden could have defeated Miller and this opinion is largely responsible for the advice to Martin to keep out. RICHES OF NOME. Prod net ireness of the Camp Greater Than Previously Reported. Vancouver, B. C, June IS. That the gold fields of Cape Xome are richer and more productive than has yet been reported is the story brought down, by the steamer Alpha, which has ar rived from the north. From a single claim worked by 20 men in the em ploy of Jack Brady $13,CC0 was takers out in one week, and the same claim panned out $56,000 within the month. As an earnest of Cape Xome's golden productiveness the Alpha brought $250. 000 in gold dust. There were five pas sengers and the dust belonged to four of them, in the following amounts: Jack Gill, of Seattle. $143.0): J. C. Monaghan. of Denver. $40,000; Frank Green, of Kansas City. $30,000; Glea Tinslev. an old Dawson miner who went to Xome last year, $35,000. Unusual interest has followed the Alpha's trip not only because she waa the first steamer to sail for Cape Xome but more especially on account of in ternational complications, the Alnha being a Canadian boat and Xome not being a port of entry. But the captain had no trouble with the customs regu lations. He sailed from Vancouver April 5, clearing for St. Michaels. Ha says that he was so menaced with ice bergs as he approached St. Michaels that he proceeded to Xome, landed 153 passengers and their supplies on tha beach on May 23. and sailing for Van couver on May 30. The people of Xome had been anx iously awaiting the arrival of the early steamers" and a guessing contest with, a $3,000 prize has been arranged for the naming of the first vessel from the south. The extent of the gold producing area of Xome seems much greater than was at first supposed, and all over the country men are reported to be washing out 15 to 20 cents to the pan in gold.
