URGED BY GOVERNOR.
Gives Out Statement Concerning
Governor Stanley urges the people of
Kansas to united effort to make the
yemi-cente-nnial exposition a success.
The governor had the following state
ment prepared for publication:
"It will require a united effort upon
the part of the people of all sections to
interest the different counties and cities
In the enterprise. It will need general
support to give it something more than
a local significance, to get the necessary
appropriation from the legislature, and
it will need the earnest and enthusiastic
co-operation of our senators and mem
bers of congress, backed by the heany
indorsement of their constituents, to se
cure a reasonable appropriation from
congress. Before we can get un appro
priation from congress we must have a
reasonable appropriation from our own
legislature, Before we can get one from
' our own legislature, we must have gen
erous contributions from our towns and
cities, and esuecially generous ones
lrom the localities entering into compe
tition for this exposition, if there is to
be any competition, and before we can
ask the difterent localities to enter the
competition or give their donations, we
.must have a reasonable subscription of
Ftock, and the amount fixed in the char
ter, S.'O.edO, is not unreasonable. This
jiubscription, however, will not be secur
ed by promiscuous talk, but can only be
secured by close organization and rea
" The board of directors ought to be
called together at an early day, perfect
their organization, and the directors In
the several congressional districts or
other suitable persons selected, should
- thoroughly organize their district in an
effort to secure stock, and give the
movement definite shape and character.
"The very tlrst step in this enterprise
hould be the enlistment of the press of
the state, and the organization should
be so absolutely devoid of partisan or
local bias that the newspaper:! may be
induced to take hold of it without re
gard to their location or their political
bias, and give the movement an enthus
iastic start. If the newspapers can be
induced to take the matter up and give
it earnest support, and the directors in
the several congressional districts can
be induced to organize their several dis
tricts and secure the necessary sub
scription of stock, the success of the en
terprise will be assured. All of this pre
liminary work ought to be absolutely
gratuitous. Those who are intrusted
with putting the movement on its feet
ought to be generous enough to do it
without compensation. As the work
progresses, it will be necessary, of
course, to have paid employes, but Dav-
ment for services ought net to be
thought of until the move.Tier.t is well
BAKER IS PLEASED.
Senator Says He Will Easily Be Re
elected. United States Senator Lucien Baker
ha3 given out the following statement
of his views and strength in the sena
"I have not been in the habit of con
ducting any campaign, or in fact any
matter of business in which I am in
terested, with a brass band. and through
all my senatorial career you will prob
ably find that the things than I have
done or have accomplished, hive gen
erally become known through the news
papers long after they were consum
mated. "I am greatly pleased with the gen
eral party outlook in Kansas this year,
and the magnitude of our success at the
approaching election will astonish a
great many politicians who, by habit,
are disposed to adopt a conservative
, view, My correspondence, svhich is
from the old veterans, points to the in
evitable conclusion that President Mc
Kinley and Governor Stanley and the
remainder of the Republican ticket will
carry the state by majorities running
well up into the thousands.
"Yof may say that so far as I am
personally concerned I am more than
satisfied. The result of legislative nom
inations in the past two months has
verified careful estimates made as long
as five months ago. While I have lost
in two or three districts upon which I
relied. I have gained in five that were
not originally counted on, and I think
you will discover when the legislature
meets that I will have a good, sub
stantial working majority of the Re
-This is all I care to say excepting
that my friends have been earnestly
requested to work for the election of
the party nominees in their respective
districts without regard to their sena
torial preferences. The success of the
party generally, is above and beyond all
of my personal ambitions."

adelphia Creates Havoc.

used in the manufacture of fireworks.

The explosion occurred at the dwell
ing of Giangiulia, on Schell street. The
third floor was utilised for manufac
turing cannon crackers and other fire
works. It is not known just how the

one of their pipes fell into the powder

and every other dwelling in the block,
was damaged more or less seriously.

Great Distress Reported From Ari
Chicago, June IS. A special to the
Times-Herald- from Phoenix, Ariz.,
Hight thousand Pima Indians in the
Gila reservation, thirty miles from
Phoenix, are destitute, and a like num
ber of Fapagoes are on the verge of
S. H. McCowen, superintendent of the
Phoenix Indian industrial school, has
been directed by the interior depart
ment to make an examination into the
condition of the Plmas. He declares
that the sole salvation of the Indians
is in federal appropriation, for the con?
struction of a storage reservoir.
"An appropriation of $33,000," said
Mr. McCowen, "has been made for the
relief of the distitute Pimas. Rations
will be distributed before the end of
the summer, but the appropriation will
mot preclude a recurrence of the famine."

ROBERTS TO END WAR
By Cutting Off Communications
With Delagoa Bay.
New York, June IS. A dispatch to
the Tribune from London, says:
The opinion prevails at Cape Town
that the Delagoa Bay communications
will be cut off speedily and the war
be brought to a close. There have beer
many untrustworthy rumors about
secret expeditions towards Komatipoort
but there has been no definite informa
tion that any movement of this kind
is in progress through Swaziland.
Iord Roberts' own plan of campaign,
seems to involve complete separation
of the Free State and the Transvaal
forces by the occupation of the rail
way between Johannesburg and Laing3
Nek, which will probably be captured
Press dispatches indicate'that no ad
vance has been made from Volksrust
toward Ermelo. and that there has
been no change in the situation ii the
Free State. General Rundle's division
is skirmishing with the commandoes,
but only insignificant outpost affairs
are reported with some artillery firing
The ministerial crisis at Cape Town
is believed to be at an end, and Sir
John Gordon Sprigg is reported to have
received assurances from Mr. Schrein
