It is announced from St. Louis that the strikers will fight the street cars with automobiles. Hanna might settle the Delaware fght by having Addicks nominated for vice president. The person or persons who induced Dinvpy to announce his candidacy for the presidency are still in hiding. Instead of choosing the man who built the Oregon as a vice presidential candidate, why not take the man who Bailed her? The concert of the powers in placing troops in China is perfect, but when it comes to removing them, why, that is another story. Governor Tavlor seems to be more Fuecessful in securing recognition from tne chairman of the national conven tion than he was in securing it from the courts. The Pittsburg Dispatch Is unkind enough to bint that the Dolliver boom is based on a desire to get the Iowa man into a position where he will have no excuse for talking. Those delegates who favor the nomi nation of a member of the administra tion for vice president probably do so on the theory that there cannot be too much of a good thing. Immediately following the announce ment that Sir. Bryan had enlarged and improved his front porch comes one to the effect that he will not make a speech-making tour of the country after his nomination. The first nominating national con vention of the Republican party was held in Philadelphia, in 1836. It noml nated Fremont and Dayton, who were defeated by Buchanan and Breckin ridge. The one now in session is the twelfth in the history of this great po litical organization. Eight of its noml rues for the presidency have been elected, viz., Abraham Lincoln, in 1SG0, and again in 1S64; IT. S. Grant, in 1868. nd again in 1872; Rutherford B. Hayes, in 1S76; James A. Garfield, in 1SS0; Benjamin Harrison, in 13S8, and William McKinley. in 1896. Its nomi nees have been defeated at three elec tions only John C. Fremont, in 1S36, James G. Blaine, in 1S84, and Benja min Harrison, in 1S92. Including the present convention, Philadelphia will have been the meeting place of three; five have met in Chicago, one in Baltl more, one in Cincinnati, one in Minne apolls, and one in St. Louis. GOVERNMENT ROAD BUILDING From the Philadelphia Call. Uncle Sam cannot be accused of lack ing in paternal care for his own. But of all the channels for the distribution of his beneficence agriculture lies closest to his heart. For gifts through the navy or the war department, the state or treauury department, you have to ask a good many times befoe your Uncle Kamuel will hear. Approach him through the postoITice department or Ihe department of the interior and he is as elot:e as a Connecticut parson But mention agriculture to Uncle Sam and he smiles, his purse strings loosen by a natural movement, and his gen eiosity knows no bounds. Agriculture Is Uncle Sam's strong point. It' is likewise his greatest weakness. Pump kin seeds, tulip bulbs, sunflower cones, patent washes for weevil, rust and cut worms anything pertaining to agricul ture? Uncle Sam will give away with a free hand, but he wouldn't give you ft postage stamp for worlds. The latest fad of Uncle Sam's is to order his chief engineer to go into ag ricultural communities, far and near, end build a good piece of road. Doyles town is one of the beneficiaries of this generosity. A road with Telford foun dation and macadam surface is being constructed between Doylestown and the National Farm school. The idea is to make a piece of road so good by contrast that the farmers will be ashamed of their other roads. They will not onlv want to build better roads then, but by looking on while Uncle Sam is building his piece they will learn just how to do It. After F'eitie how Uncle Sam removes the day surface, lays a Telford foundation and covets it with crushed macadam it Is believed no farmer would dare run a plow along a road, loosening up the dirt and laying it in neat furrows along the center and call it road-making-. Road building by the government has not made much progress. The present undertaking In that line will do more than all else to stimulate the desire for good roads.. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. Marriage is like mining: a great thing rwhen you strike it. Usually, before a man falls in busi he has a great deal to say about how hard he has worked, and how he has failed to receive proper apprecia tion. An Atchison woman had grounds for divorce before she was married. Occasionally a man has no other suc cess than to illustrate what bad man agement can do. Some people resolve to make the world joyous by their example, and are too good natured. Kvery woman complains of some neighbor who never comes over except when she wants to borrow. "You have heard about the woman who is worth her weight In gold. You are rapidly getting there." Extract from an Atchison love letter. POINTED PARAGRAPH 3 From the Chicago News. Be loving and you will never want for love. Only children play ball. Men make a lousiness of It. j Why should a clock be arrested for striking the hour? Reason is a man's guide, but principle is his safe-guard. People who have long faces are apt to have short understandings. A rural editor says the lay of the hen lays allover that of the poet. If you would have a good servant se lect neither a friend nor a relative. Better remain poor than acquire wealth at the expense of your good name. A hardware clerk isn't necessarily a defaulter because he sells iron and bolts. In driving a nail a woman either drivers it crooked or hits her finger. As a rule the man who talks loudest in an argument is in the wrong. Don't imagine that you can win the regard of your neighbors by saying just what you think. Life is often but a dream to a young man until experience treads on his corns and wakes him up. A learned scientist has made the startling discovery that habitual thirst is the cause of habitual drunkenness. According to statistics lightning strikes more women than men each year probably because they are more at tractive. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. The dealer in feathers should have no difficulty in getting down to business. Some men say they never get a show, while with other men success is a con tinuous performance. 'A'woman in politics," says the Man- ayunk Philosopher, "always reminds me of a hen in a duck pond." A woman who was arrested uptown last night gave her name as Delia Gate, and added that she was a stranger in town. Hoax "What is the first thing a wo man does when a caterpillar crawls on her neck? Joax "Rubberneck, I sup pose." Scribbler "Why do you call your new play 'Electricity?' "Playwright "In the hope that it might prove a current at traction." Blobbs "Do you think children should be encouraged in asking ques tions?" Slobbs "Certainly. Wisdom only conies to the whys." Some are for Davis, some for Scott, Some say that Woodruff's not amiss; And there are others, quite a lot, Who simply Long for Bliss. NO MORE HARVEST HANDS. Labor Bureau Abandons the Kansas City Branch. B. P. Scott, assistant secretary of the state labor bureau, has returned from Kansas City, having discontinued the branch of the department which has been maintained there for some time to aid in supplying the state with harvest hand. Mr. Scott worked with the railroads in supplying the demand for men. and was successful in placing S00 men at work. This is in addition to the thousands of men who went out of Kansas City on boxcars. When sending men out to the various points Scott would purchase tickets for the whole number and out of the S00 sent out not a single one was lost from the party. "The average wages," said Mr. Scott today, "paid to the men sent out is $2 per day. Some receive more; some less. "Ninety per cent of the men who went to work through this department were from eastern Kansas and western Mis souri. Not a single one of those who applied to us for work was without money. All of them had money and clothing." ' The men sent out by Mr. Scott were distributed as nearly as possible pro portionate to the requests for men which, now on file in the department, show the following demands for men to work in the harvest: Great Bend 200 25 50 50 150 Abbyville ..

WILLIAMS IS DEFIANT. Liquor Men Try to Secure Discharge of Prohibition Leader. There is no man in Kansas who is more bitterly or generally despised by liquor men than Mont Williams of Lansing, chairman of the Prohibition state central committee, who is prom inent in the Prohibition gathering here today. Williams has earned the hatred and ill-will of the brewers and local vio lators in Leavenworth county until sev eral attempts have been made to do him personal violence. Only a few weeks ago two men attempted to pull v imams out or a buggy, presumaDij for the purpose of clubbing him. Wil liams at the time was in the buggy with his wife going to church. Williams is an uncompromisingenemy of the liquor traffic. He believes it pos sible for the governor to enforce the prohibitory law on tlie pike and in Klondike alike and his utterances con cerning this subject have not been of the kind calculated to exercise a sooth ing iniiuence upon the consciences of the men who do not take the pains to come within the provisions of the state law when the subject of selling liquor is considered. In a modest way some years ago Wil liams took up the fight against the liquor element which has always been notorious in Leavenworth county and has since been getting deeper into the squabble which is always going on there. During all of this time he has been the local or joint agent of the Mis souri Pacific and Union Pacific rail roads at Lansing. Wrilliams made the race for congressman at large upon the Prohibition ticket two years ago and was especially bitter in his denunciation of those who deal in liquors. Williams is a vigorous campaigner and the remarks which he made were of such a character as to attract the attention of the element he was fight ing. His speeches were reported and with these documents the brewers and shippers of liquor into Leavenworth county opened the heavy artillery. It was demanded at the outset that Wil liams be removed from the county. Later this was amended to a demand that he be discharged from the service ot the company. . W ith this sort ot a fight against him Williams has kept an incessant hammering against the liquor element. Representatives of the liquor traffic called on Williams and offered to dismiss the fight against him if he would agree to stop the fight against them. This he refused to do and the case which they made is now pending in the office of the general manager of the Missouri Pacific. START'S PREDICAMENT. Ordered Released But Court Is Not in Session. Al Start, a prisoner in the state pen itentiary, according to a decision of the supreme court is to be released, but the district court which has been ordered to carry this mandate into effect does not convene until December so the prisoner seems to be up against a diffi cult proposition. Start hails from the short grass coun try where it was fashionable to have notches on a gun barrel indicative of the number of men the possessor of the gun had killed. Start had trouble and used his gun but he did not earn the right to have a notch filed on his re volver. The victim did not die. Start was tried under charges of assault with intent to kill. He was convicted and sent to the penitentiary. The ease was appealed to the supreme court, which at the last session, or dered the district court to release Start from prison. The district court does not convene until December so the offi cers interested are here asking the su preme court to amend the order to give Start his liberty at once. Leavenworth's Population. Leavenworth, June 20. The Leaven worth census enumerators have com pleted their work and they report a pop ulation within the city limits of 21,022. This is a gain of 1,242 over the popula tion of Leavenworth in 1890. Bickerdyke Home Officials. McPherson, June 20.

IT WOULDN'T PAY. i Some times people say to me that they know I will tell them they : need glasses whether they do or t net. Putting aside all questions of ; ri.crht anil wrong, such a method of . doing business would never pay me. I am permanently established in Topeka. I e.m not here tc.lav and I away tomorrow. The building up 1 of an established practice is of j more importance to me than the . few extra sales I might make bv dishonest practices. I have advised ! many people r.ot to wear glasses, i These people never paid me a cent for the information. Thev accepted my invitation to have their eves examined and I was more than 1 pleased to do it for them. I wish i you wouid do the same thing. I want everyone to feel free to con- suit with me about their eves, t will make a careful examination ; and teil you just what you ought to do. Tf you don't need glasses I will not sell them to you under any . consideration. I My exclusive attention is given to 1 fitting glasses. CHAS. BENNETT, OPTICIAN, 730 Kansas Avenue. Established 1S79. PICTURESQUE CLUBS. Two From Washington, Composed of Negroes, Are in the Lead. Philadelphia, June 20. The most pic turesque clubs that have arrived so far are the 31aine Invincibles and the W. Calvin Chase Republican clubs, both of Washington. These clubs are com posed of negroes. The Invincibles, at tired in tall hats, tan frock coats, tan trousers and gloves, bearing red and white umbrellas, marched up Broad street headed by a negro band which played "Dixie" "and "Yankee Doodle." The W. Calvin Chases wore gray hats, i coats, trousers, and gloves, and car ried umbrellas similar to the Invin cibles. The Chase club was for Wood ruff. It lined up in the street in front of the Walton, and one. monumental negro, with a fine white beard, veiled at the top of his lungs, "What's the matter with Woodruff-f-f ?" The hundred marchers gave the ex pected answers; then somebody called for three "ch?ers for the lieutenant gov ernor. Thes? were given by the march, ers. Then solicitous inquiry was made again as to Mr. Woodruff's fitness. Three more cheers. The club expected that Mr. Woodruff, whom they regard ed as a very generous gentleman, would do something, make a speech, or at least appear at the window and bow. But Mr. Woodruff didn't appear. Final ly the marchers became impatient and one of them, turning to the others, said: "Well, lets move on; there's nothing doing here." Then the marshal rCopvright. lflX. CONGRESSMAN JONATHAN P. DOLLI VER, OF IOWA, Who is the Second Choice of Kansas, and Whose Friends VWere Joyous Today Over Missouri's Announce ment for Him. of the line gave th i order, "Make ready, unfix." All the red and white umbrellas were furled and the line moved on. The Young Men's Blair e club of Cincinnati arrived in the afternoon and brought a big band, which serenaded the guests at the Walton. This cub was organized in the Blaine campaign and most of its members have belonged to it ever since then. They are proud of their organiza tion and marching ability.

Bets that the Governor Will Head the Ticket. St. Louis, June 20. A special to the Reoublic says: Stock brokers were busy during the closing hour of the market betting on tne possibility ot Governor Roosevelt being nominated for president by the Republican, convention. The opening odds were 1 to 10, the small end being in affirmation of such a nomination. At these odds Sidney S. Schuyer placed money with J. S. Jones of Jones, Maury & Co. George S. Lancon also ' ' ' if" ' ' REV. EDGAR M. LKV'Y, L. D., OF 1 ' K N X S V I , V A N 1 A . Chosen Chaplain of the Republican Na tional Convention. placed two bets at the same odds with J. Ivins and a representative of Charles Fairchild & Co. Immediately before the. close of the market the odds shifted quickly, the representatives of some Philadelphia firms offering 1 to 2 that Roosevelt would be nominated for the first place. The fact that these bets were made by brokers with thi3 connection had a depressing effect on stocks, on the theory that the upsetting of the Repub- lican machine, which such a nomina tion would imply, would injure the chances of the ticket winning in the election. SENATOR PLATT GOES HOME. Says He Is Sick and Don't Care Who Is Made Vice President. Philadelphia, June 20.-2:48 p. m. Senator Piatt left for New York City early this afternoon. He made a re mark before leaving that he did not PLATT IS SICK. care who was nominated for vice presi dent. He will not return and will not take any further part in the convention because of his impaired health. SLOAN AND REIFF. Work of American Jockeys Lauded by English Critics. London, June 20. The total value of the seventeen events secured by five Ameri can jockeys at Ascot is .23,944, while the English jockeys won only 12,085. Alto- getner tne eight Americans wno roae naa sixty-nine mounts in twenty-six races. getting places forty times. Sloan, out of thirteen mounts, has six nrsts, lour sec onds and live thirds; L. Reiff, out of four teen mounts, had four firsts and two thirds. Reviewing tile racing of the week in the Sporting Times, John Cor- lett says: Again the great feature was the extra ordinary success of the American jockeys, which amounts to the revelation that our own jockeys have, with few exceptions, be come utterly aeteri: ttea. v e were al ready aware of this, but did not think the case was as bad as it proves to be. There is no fad of fashion in the employ ment of Americans. On the other hand, thev had to tight prejudice and overcome ridicule. The position they have won has been gained by sheer merit. On Cup day especially their successes were most re markable. They ride with their heads as well as with their hanas. If a horse has It in him they bring it out. "Mr. Drake, the owner of Royal Flush, although he did not name his hoe, is one of the greatest poker players in the world. When tne ceieorateu game was played on the tram from Chicago by the wheat cornerers. j'raKe ami ljener were nmonir the. ulavers. and it is said that hundreds of thousands changed hands." THE BOSS DENOUNCER. Prohibition Delegate Who Was After Republicans and Populists. S. B. Kokanour of Clay Center was the thorn in the flesh of the Prohibition convention. He was suppressed by the committee on resolutions, but he re fused to subside and insisted upon the adoption of a series of resolutions pre pared by himself. These resolutions denounced the Re publican and Populist legislatures for amending the state ballot law "in such shape as to make it almost impossible for new and minority parties to exer cise the right of suffrage." as "an out rage upon popular government and a stigma on the parties perpetrating it." Kokanour also denounced the national congress and supreme' court for licens ing the liquor traffic. These declarations fourtnr denounced the legislature for amending the pro hibitory law in such a manner as to re move a portion of the law governing penalties. The author of the resolutions enlisted the sympathy of J. L. Eldridge of To peka, the latter presenting the resolu tion denouncing the practice of electing political shysters U the legislature. He wanted the platform amended. This precipitated a debate. Mr. Garton of Norton wanted all resolutions kept out Rev. Dr. Richardson opposed the load ing of the platform with unnecessary things. W. M. Howie of Garnett favored the adoption of the resolution, but the plat form was finally adopted as submitted. M'KINLEY AND CANTEEN. Both are Denounced by the Prohi bition Convention. The Prohibition state convention this afternoon adopted a resolution denounc ing President McKinley for not sup pressing the army canteen. HILL FOR MCE PRESIDENT Part of Kentucky Delegation in Favor of the New Yorker. Frankfort, Ky., June 20. Judge W. S. Pryor, one of the Kentucky delegates at large to the Kansas City convention, today announced that he was for for mer Senator David Bennett Hill, of New York, for vice president. The Kentucky delegation is divided between Hill and former Congressman Shively, of Indiana, but most of them favor a man from Indiana or New York for second place with Bryan. DEATHS AND FUNERALS. D. W. Flock died at 4 o'clock yester day afternoon at Christ hospital. Mr. Flock had no relatives in the city and his remains will be held at Cromwell's morgue in North Topeka until a brother in California may be heard from. The funeral of Wm. Antrim, who was killed in a mine at Crir-ue Ci'eek. Tuesday, will be held at the Half Day church, Fri'lay, at 11 o'clock. The body will arrive Friday morning. Stop Sidewalk Riding. The police are making a determined effort to stop the riding c-J bicycles on the sidewalks. A numLvr of arrests have been made and they have been fined but it does not seem to abate the nuisance.

' Penitentiary Warden Says He Knows Nothing of Elenora Hotel Joint Warden Tomlinson has replied to the charges made by the Prohibitionists. In an interview in today's Leavenwortn Times he said: "It is true that Mont Williams and several others came to me some time ago and asked me to shut off the lights and water supply to the Elenora hotel. charging that the place was being run as a joint. "I told them I did not know any thing about its being run as a joint but that if that was so and they would show that it was, I would shut off the lights and water. "They then said they would bring a man who would swear that liquor was being sold at the place. They finally found a man whom they said would swear he had bought liquor there. They did not bring him to me for it after wards developed that he would not swear that he had bought liquor in the hotel and denied that ha had ever said so. "I told the parties who asked me to shut off the water and light supply that at any time when they would bring a citizen who would swear liquor was being sold in the hotel I would shut off the light and water. "They wanted me to go ahead but I refused to do that. I told them the county attorney was the proper person to close the place and that he was elected for this purpose. "I do not know anything about liquor having been sold at the hotel. "We have been furnishing light and water to the place. The state was do ing it when I came to the prison." WHEAT'S FLIGHT. Reaches Highest Point Since the Leiter Deal. Chicago, June 20. Wheat had an other sensational start In prices today. July sold to 81 cents, an advance of 3 cents over yesterday's close and closed at the top. There was an enor mous trade. Many who had bought at a lower price took out profits. The ex tremely grave situation in thenorthwest was the influence in the advance. Re ports from that section todav were that the crop had been practically ruined by the lack of rain. Under an immense pressure from buyers the market forged resistlessly ahead to Sl- cents, closing at the top, 3 cents over yesterday. Profit taking was on a heavy scale but failed to check the advance. The close today is the high est price since the Leiter deal. The torn market responded to the wheat strength and closed 1 cents up at 41 cents. HANNA GIVES UP. May Drive the Roosevelt Band "Wagon Himself. Philadelphia, June 20. The friends of the president under the leadership of Senator Hanna this afternoon are se riously contemplating taking up Gov ernor Roosevelt and thus not only making his nomination probably unani mous but taking to themselves the credit of the nomination. They say the action of New York under Senator Piatt's guidance in deciding to nominate Mr. Woodruff leaves the door open for this course, and that if in view of this circumstance Roosevelt is named there can be no doubt that they will get the credit for the nomination. The presi dent has refused to take a position in the matter. His friends assert that any man he would name could be nomi nated. SEWALL IS FIRST. Member ot National Committee From Hawaii. .

CHICAGO WANTS QU1NN. Tom Loftus Will Be Glad to Take the Released Second Baseman. Chicago.June 19. President Hart waa in his office yesterday getting the re turns from the games in the east over the ticker.

If he wants Quinn he can get him. I have nothing further to do with the matter." It is more than likely that the Chi cago manager will try to get Quinn. as Hart said yesterday that Childs was considerable of a disappointment If Quinn does not join the Orphans it would not be surprising if Childs were sent to the bench for a time, Clingman going to second and Bradley to short. HURRY ORDERS Issued For Coaling the TJ. S. Training Ship Buffalo. Southampton, June 20. Hurry orders have been issued for the coaling of the United States training ship Buffalo.

The Buffalo was scheduled to go to Christiani and thence to the United States, but these orders are said to have been revoked. It is claimed she has has about 750 men on board. The United States cruiser Albany can not leave for a month owing to lack of quipment.
