Teddy hesitated and was lost.
Lord Roberts is still hot on the trail
t)t Oom Paul's capital. , '
The sultan need not flatter himself that
lie is forgotten because Uncle Sam is
busy in China Just now.
Wars which occurred a generation
opart are represented on the ticket
named at Philadelphia.
Platt diil not become so sick as to
necessitate his going home until he got
things fixed his way at the convention.
The public will have an opportunity,
cf devotinesomeattentionto China for a
few days betwecnnow and the Fourth of
July. '
Xever was a man so persistently
hunted by an-office since the Populists
started the faahion, as was .Governor
Roosevelt.
It is not often that Senator Billy Ma
eon misses an opportunity to participate
in a big talk, but he was not heard of at
Philadelphia,
The American boy has something to
he thankful for. This year's supply of
firecrackers got out of China before the
trouble began.
Governor Roosevelt showed his oppo
sition to his own nomination to the last
hy refusing to vote with the delegation
from New York.
"Washington Post: According to the
decision of the court of claims, Admiral
Sampson was $5,000 nearer the Spanish
fleet than Admiral Schley.
Once more the effort to reduce the
representation of southern states in Re
publican national conventions, has been
defeated and the customary contesting
delegations will continue to bother the
party managers.
Mr. Hanna is a wise man. He knows
how to snatch victory out of defeat.
AVhen the Roosevelt mountain would
not come to him, he went to the moun
tain. Failing in his efforts to thwart
the machinations of Quay and Piatt, he
climbed into the Roosevelt band wagon
and took the lines himself instead of
staying where he might be run over.
The supporters of the president will
row try to break a precedent which has-
been established since 1S72. Since that
date no man has been chosen to the
presidency two terms in succession. Mr.
Cleveland was twice elected but the
term of President Harrison Intervened.
If the ticket succeeds, there is little
doubt in the mind of anybody now that
'there will be an attempt to overcome
another precedent by electing a vice
president to the office of chief executive.
A novelty in New Tork harbor this
summer will be the floating hotels es
tablished by John R. Arbuckle, the mil
lionaire coffee dealer. They will go down
the bay from liattery every evening, re
turning in the morning. Sleeping ac
commodations on board may be had for
. moderate sum. Mr. Arbuckle believes
the cool sea air on hot summer nights
will be a great boon for men who have
to work hard during the day and who
ere forced by circumstances to live in
irowded tenements. Four vessels will
be fitted out for Mr. Arbuckle's fleet.
OUR NATIONAL WEALTH.
fFrom Philadelphia North American.
The tremendous balance of trade in
our favor has been going on now for
four years. In the 12 months ending
May, 1897, it was $308,795,262; in the next
year it was $359,729,197, in the next $538,
951, 3S7, and in the year just closed it has
been $532,058,604. In these four years we
have sold goods to the extent of $1,939,
34,450 more than we have bought.
Of course, if all thesei things had been
raid for in money the financial system
of the world would have been wrecked.
As a matter of fact, in this period our
net imports of gold have been only a tri
fie over $200,000,000, and in the same time
cur net exports of silver have been over
$100,000,000. leaving only about $100,
000,000 of treasure to balance nearly
$2,000,000,000 of merchandise.
Evidently we are being paid in other
ways partly by the return of our own
securities, and partly by the creation of
foreisrn Indebtedness to us. And that, of
course, means increasing resources ev
pry year. The interest on $2,000,000,000
at 4 per cent would be $80,000,000 a year,
which of itself Is as much as our ordi
nary balance of trade before its recent
enormous expansion.
It is easy to see why our financiers
look now upon the possibility of gold
experts with so much more equanimity
than they did a few years ago. With ad
(iitional credits of $2,000,000,000, with an
annual balance of trade exceeding $500.
000.000, and with over $425,000,000 of gold
In the treasury, we can help out the
anxious foreigner with a gold deal more
comfort than we could when we were in
debt to Europe, had a balance of trade
Uma than $90,000,000, and had to peddle
bonds to keep 1100,000,000 of gold In the
treasury.
All these remarkable changes have
come about In four years, during which
we have incidentally fought two wars,
destroyed one empire and created another.
HOPES TO SATE K ASS AS.
Hanna Will "Play Up the War Busi
ness With Teddy."
Philadelphia, June 22. Mark Hanna,
who engineered the first nomination of
McKinley through the convention of
ISliti, and who claimed the credit of
the ticket of this year, left his apart
ments last eveninjr and went to the
summer residence of Clement A. Gris
com at Haverfoi'd, where he has here
tofore hidden himself from the crowds.
He professed to be serenely happy over
the outcome.
"Oh. it is a magnificent ticket; a
sulemlid ticket, and I am more than
satisfied," was what he said for publi
cation. Hanna breakfasted with Senator
Sppongr,. and at the table Spooner
said:
"Well, what do you think of it,
Hanna, now that It Is all over but the
shouting?"
"Well," said Hanna. slowly and ap
parently measuring every word, "I've
won a great victory in this thing. I've
finally had everything my way. I
could not well get it any other way.
Put I must say that I am not very
proud of my victory."
"What is going to be the effect of
the retirement of Roosevelt from New
York state politics?" Senator Spooner
asked.
"I do not know," Hanna replied, "but
I do believe that Roosevelt will give
us electoral votes that we would not
have secured In any other way, and
all of these things are worth taking
into consideration."
Senator Hanna did not explain what
he meant, but he referred to the situa
tion in Kansas. Subsequently, when
asked about his enigmatical statement,
Hanna said that Roosevelt was the only
man who could assure the state of
Kansas to the Republican. party.
Roosevelt had a number of the Kansas
men under him in Cuba, and Hanna
said that he was extremely popular
with the men of that section on ac
count cf his treatment of his men, and
the affection that had grown up be
tween them. . . .
Hanna. discussing this subject with
one of his lieutenants, said that It
would be necessary to play up the war
business in the coming campaign, and
that .r.o man could do better than
Roosevelt himself.
"The Kansas boys like him," Hanna
sail, "and Governor Roosevelt may be
able to win them over to the Republi
can ticket. Certainly no other man
can do it."
A TOPEKA WOMAN.

New Tork, June 22. Detectives Mc
Conville and Barrett today arrested
Edward M. Logan, 28 years old, and
Charles P. Coakes, alias Charles M.

ahead of the boat. They went at once
to the Christina's pier, at West Tenth
street, where five double trucks received
the goods.

WANT COUNTY LEAGUE,
Said That the Law Has Been
Entirely Ignored.
Expect to Call in Some of the
County Bonds.
Fort Scott, June . 22. The executive
committee of the Tax Payers' league of
this city has issued the following call:
To the Tax Payers of Bourbon County:
You are respectfully Invited to attend
a meeting of the tax payers of Bourbon
county, to be held June 23d, Saturday,
at 2 o'clock, at the court house, for the
purpose of forming a tax payers' league
for the county.
The tax payers of the city of Fort
Saott under the auspices of the tax
payers' league since their organization
have turned into the city treasury over
J1.000, and into the county treasury be
tween six and eight hundred dollars, as
the result of the investigation of the
city offices of Fort Scott. It is alleged
that there has been a large misappro
priation of money by the county officers,
following the custom which has been
laid down by their predecessors. In a
number of cases almost double charges
have been made for work done upon the
plea that their predecessors made such
charges. The law has been entirely ig
nored, governing the charges proper for
such othcers.
It will be the purpose also for the
league so formed to discuss the advisa
bility of calling In some of the county
bonds. There will be, it is estimated
$70,000 in the sinking fund next July for
the purpose of paying off the $219,000
owing on the railroad bonds. The
banks of our city are only paying 1 per
cent interest on this, and It is be
lieved that there could be a great sav
ing made to the county by buying these
bonds in and stopping the interest.
Those who are well advised as to the
county matters claim by such arrange
ments that the county tax could be re
duced 1 per cent.
All the tax payers of this county are
respectfully invited to attend this meet
ing. AMONG WHEAT FIELDS.
Sedgwick County Has 2,340,000
Bushels Which Will Bring
$1,404,000.
Wichita, June 22 Sedgwick county
is full of farmers who began with noth
ing and are rich. Because of the big
crops here, land is advancing in price.
Oscar Z. Smith, the principal land agent
here, saya that land throughout the
county has advanced in the last year
from $4 to $10 an acre. Land is worth
from $20 to $50 an acre.
Upward of a million dollars worth of
farm mortgages were paid off in Sedg
wick county last year. The exact
amount in cancelled mortgages last
year, as shown by the county's records,
was $1,206,224.70. That was of prosperi
ty that came to the farmers of this
county from big crops last year, when
they raised 1.159.776 bushels of wheat,
which was sold for $603,083.
This year Sedgwick county has 130.000
acres in wheat. It will average a yield
of eighteen bushels to the acre at the
very lowest estimate and that will be
2,340,000 bushels, more than twice the
yield of last year, and it will bring, at
the least calculation, 60 cents a bushel.
or $1,404,000. Most of the farmers In
this county expect to get 75 cents a
bushel for their wheat and a great
many say they will hold it till it goes
up to $1 a bushel, which they expect to
get for it before snow flies.
A reporter drove to the largest single
wheat field in Sedgwick county. It is
on the farm of Frank Means, fourteen
miles southwest of Wichita. He has
1.070 acres of wheat in one field, and
he expects it to yield twenty-six bushels
to the acre. Mr. Means came to this
county seventeen years ago and bought
eighty acres of land at a cheap ngure,
and Vo 1-inrl not monev enousrh to nav
br it. Today he owns 1,440 acres of
land and is out of debt. He made his
money growing wheat and feeding cat
tle and hogs. He buys one or two tarms
each year. Mr. Means has 8,000 bushels
of corn of last year's crop and 6,000
bushels of old wheat which he held over
for a raise in price. He expects the
raise this year.
NEOSHO FRUIT GROWERS.
Not a Crate of Fruit Has Been Lost
and Cash All Received.
Chanute, June 22. The Neosho Coun
ty Fruit Growers' association com
menced business with shipping straw
berries this season and up to the close
of the season had sold and shipped
from their office in this city $1,953 worth
of strawberries alone.
Not a crate of fruit has been lost and
the cash has been received for every
box.
NO PRISON TWINE.
Abilene Dealers Will Not Handle it
For the State.
Abilene, June 22. Not a hardware
man in town is selling penitentiary
twine. When the state got "stuck" on
selling its product to the farmer direct,
it tried to sell to the dealers but they
refused to touch it. A good many far
mers have the twine, however.
One deale estimates that 40,000 to
50.000 pounds were purchased but it is
hard to find just who sent for it. It has
placed the dealers in a peculiar situa
tion they can not tell Just how much
of their trade is supplied with twine and
hence have been at sea as to the suffi
ciency of their stock. No dealer wants
to keep any over for a big drop in price
is likely at any time. The wheat is do
ing so well that the twine question may
be a very live one before harvest ends.
THE OLD 20TH REGULARS.
Regiment That May Go to China Was
Once Stationed at Fort
Leavenworth.

A SOFT BERTH FOR CARTER.
Prison Officials Give the Ex Captain
an Easy Life as Predicted.
Leavenworth, June 22. Close con
finement within the shops and cells of
a penitentiary has proven too much for
Oberlin M. Carter, ex-captain of engi
neers, U. R. A., and he is broken in
spirit. He shows signs of giving way
completely and Warden McClaughry
has found it necessary to change his
employment and place of confinement
at night. When Carter was first
brought to the penitentiary he was ac
corded the usual treatment. He held up
well until his general health became
bad and his nervous system was on the
verge of breaking down.
Carter eats, poorly, does not sleep
well and has become melancholy. H
has been relieved from keeping the
workshop books and has been allowed
to tend the flower beds and mow the
lawn. His quarters have been changed
to the hosoital, where he now sleeps
and eats.

MRS. PLATT A POLITICIAN.
New York Boss Always Asks Her
Advice.
New York, June 22. "Mr. Piatt is not
very ill," said Mrs. Thomas C. Piatt to
day, "but," she added, "he needs rest
that he could not get in Philadelphia
and .it is my province to see that he
gets it."
Mrs. Piatt knows almost as much
about polities as does her astute hus
band. To their close friends she is
known as his "first lieutenant," but it
is a question if "general commanding"
would not be a better title. They have
been married many, many years, and
Mrs. Piatt has kept pace with her hus
band all the way up the ladder.
Senator Piatt enjoys being teased
about his submission to his wife. He
is proud of her, and has never taken
an important step in his life, it is said,
without her advice. When it was pro
posed that Mr. Piatt should be the
Republican candidate for governor, he
carried the suggestion to her.
"No!" she said, and that settled it.
No politician could attempt to go be
hind that verdict.
"Do you believein women in politics?"'
Mrs. Piatt was asked today.
"That depends," was her smiling re
ply. "I believe every true wife ought to
be her husband's companion in mind as
well as in fact. She should be interest
ed in what interests him. I am just as
much interested in state and national
affairs as Mr. Piatt, and I am sure I un
derstand the situation quite as well as
he does, though we do not always agree
in our deductions.
"I have my own Independent thought
on all subjects, so you cannot quote my
opinion as the echo of his by any means.
Still, I am always open to be convinced
in case we differ, and I believe he is just
as vulnerable if my arguments are the
best."
DEWEY IS RESERYED.
Declines to Discuss the Philadelphia
Developments.
Washington, June 22 Admiral Dewey
has received the news of the nomination
of McKinley and Roosevelt with equal
political and philosophical reserve.
When asked last evening for an expres
sion of opinion on the result of the Re
publican convention with reference,
especially, to the candidates nominated,
the admiral said:
"I have nothing whatever to say re
garding the action of the convention
just concluded at Philadelphia. I would
be only too glad to gratify your readers,
but really, you must tell them I can not
say anything upon the subject of the
nominations made. I can not, it should
be well understood, give an expression
of opinion even had I a well-defined
one."
Admiral Dewey could not be induced
to change his mind. He appears, how
ever, to be unmoved by the nomina
tions. Admiral Dewey was comfortably
ensconced in a great armchair, and, as
a matter of fact, did not evince any
surprise, emotion or interest in the do
ings of the Republican party.
Mrs. Dewey, who was present during
the short interview, has recovered from
her recent attack of tonsilitis.
