Newspapers which refer to the people as "the hoi pollol" -would better stick to the English language until they get time to post up on their Greek. It seems probable that Mr. Bryan's forgiveness of gold democrats -will not go to the extent of permitting David B. Hill to be named for the Becond place on the ticket. It is daily becoming more evident that there is no intention of settling the Cuban postal fraud cases or the Goebel murder business until after the elec tion. The cable Informs us that 134 China men were executed in one day recently by order of Li Hung Chang. One of the conditions which will make China a formidable adversary in war is the ut ter disregard of the value of human life in that country. Kansas has at last got a representa tion upon one of the many presidential tickets which have been placed before the people. People who believe that a government should be conducted on Christian principles can cast their votes for S. C. Swallow of Pennsylvania for president and Charles M. Sheldon of Topeka for vice president. REAL WHEAT SITUATION". From the Chicago News. If anybody thinks the rise in the price of wheat is a sign of national prosperity he should take a few min utes off and study the stock market. The advance in price has been based wholly on a prospective reduction of the yield in the United States, and if that makes for national prosperity, why, then, it would be a grand stroke of business to let all the wheat lands lie fallow, in which e-ent the cereal woul d at once go to $5 or $10 a bushel. Every cent added to the price of -wheat means that in the opinion of the ; people who are doing the adding the northwest will have so much less grain I to sell, which implies that it will have j so much less cloth, iron, groceries, fur- niture, feather and other commodities I to buy. So far the crop prospects in Russia and in those countries of southeastern ; Europe which produce more wheat than they consume are excellent. South America harvested a bumper crop last . winter and has a considerable surplus to sell. If the indications as to yield in other exporting countries be borne out a short crop in the United. States will mean simply that this country will be handicapped in its export trade. In the last two years the United States has ex ported more wheat by nearly 10 per cent than all other countries combined. Only the people who happen to be "long" wish high prices as a result of a short crop at home. High prices as the re sult of short crops abroad may be viewed in another light. GROWTH OF CHINESE TRADE. The foreign trade of China in 1809 and especially the effect of the railways upon business in the section where the present disturbances are in progress, is discussed in the annual report of the Imperial customs service of that coun try.Just received by the treasury bureau of statistics. The following are extracts from the report: The foreign trade of China during the astonishing development, and mer chants, both foreign and native, made handsome profits in almost every branch. The political situation, although year lfcas was characterized by an still unsettled, gave rise to no immed iate fears; exchange remained remark ablysteady, the rice crop was abundant; the spring weather during the critical period for the silk worm was unusually favorable; and except for a recrud escence of piracy in the West river there were no disturbances to check the trade. The gratifying result was that the year beat all previous records and showed an advance without pre cedent. The total trade was valued at Haik wan taels 460.533.2SS. a rise of Haikwan taels 91,916.805 on 1S9S,. and more than double the figures for 1890. The internal trade of the country was also unusually brisk, and the important changes which will be brought about by the extension of railways have already been proved. Newchwang and TienTsin have prompt ly responded to the stimulus of better means of communication, and the trade at these ports has leaped forward, al though the former suffered from a se vere outbreak of plague. It is found that Immediately trains begin to run, dis tricts through which there was com paratively little traffic such as between Paoting and Pekln, suddenly commence to hum with life and activity, and there springs up a flourishing trade which was formerly undreamt of and impossi ble for want of cheap transport. The Russian line has been completed as far north asMoukden.and the extraordinary richness of Manchuria will soon become evident. ."The Lu-Han railway, from Pekin to Hankow, makes steady pro gress. Within six months it is expected that trains will be running as far south as Chingting. The Chinese, from the highest to the lowest, are traders by instinct and are prompt to take advantage of every op portunity of profit. To form an idea of wJiat future prospects are it is fair to make a comparison with India. The areas of the two empires are almost Identical and their products very sim ilar. But China has a larger, a more Industrious and more intelligent pop ulation; while, on the whole, the coun try is probably more fertile and posses ses greater mineral resources. In the former country trade is assisted by good roads, railways and lightness or ab sence of taxation; in the latter, at pres ent, it is hampered by directly opposite conditions. The result is that the ex ports from India are worth three times the exports from China. With equal op portunities, -which the building of rail ways and opening of mines will bring about, this discrepancy should disap pear. The year 1899 has shown in a striking manner what an advance is made when circumstances are propit ious. As will be shown later on, the year was favorable to exports, and we have as a result to record in each direc tion the highest figures ever reached. The net value of import trade -was Haikwan taels 264.748,456, being an ad vance of Haikwan taels 55,169.122 over the previous year, and double the fig ures for ISM. Opium of all kinds Jumped from 49,785 to 69,100 piculs and realized most remunerative prices. Both im porters and native dealers made large profits. The reason for this remarkable increase in a trade which has been steadily dying out -was probably due to bad crops of the native drug. The Chinese government has been warned of the evils which are resulting from the improper use of this drug, and steps are now being taken to have the im portation restricted. The trade in cotton goods, which had remained practically stationary for three years, made a great advance. The importation of sundries rose in value from Haikwan taels 89,353,602 to Haikwan taels 111,637,897, and it is in teresting to notice the share in this in crease taken by articles showing pro gress in wealth and a desire for com fort and luxury; candles, cigars and cigarettes, clocks and watches, flour, window glass, lamps, matches, needles, perfumery, soap, sugar and umbrellas were all purchased more freely. Flour which is used in the making of fancy cakes, rose from Haikwan taels 1,774. 712 to Haikwan taels 3.189,497. In kerosene oil it will be seen there was a falling off in the importation of the American and Sumatra products, while Russian oil more than doubled in value. Of raw cotton, 278,366 piculs were Im ported. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe.j Every girl wears her corset looser than any of the girls she knows. How hard an old girl tries to appear at ease when she is in the company of a man! It makes no difference how innocent a man is, everything be does is a sign of guilt. Confession may be good for the soul, but it puts clubs in the hands of those hearing it. When a girl "hangs around" a man, it is a sign that he does not bang around her enough. Considerable anxiety is felt for a cer tain Atchison girl who married lately, and went away with her husband: she hasn't written home that she married the best man in the world. Onions are the latest remedy tried by an Atchison girl to improve her com plexion. She eats them, and no one can get near enough to her to see if her complexion is improved or not. Atchison has at least one unselfish woman. 'She has been sick a good deal of late, and said yesterday: "If I don't get better pretty soon, I intend to hang myself, so that my husband may get a wife who will be of some use." POINTED PARA GRAPH 3 From the Chicago News. The lumber trust has branches in ev ery tree. A man born at sea can never boast of his native land. An old bachelor says the rolling pin is a cooking club. A man and his wife may be one, but the wife must be won first. Doctors seldom disagree when it comes to bleeding the patient. The man who is always serious or al ways merry is but half a man. Some men are so forgetful that they always fail to remember the poor. A young mother says that a. bachelor invariably speaks of a baby as "it." A white cloud makes a good perasol, but a black one makes a poor umbrella. Go to a friend for advice, to a stranger for charity, and to a relative for noth ing. The average man puts a greater value upon a favor he bestows than upon one be receives. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. A fellow can't even learn to play the drum unless he sticks at it- Just about now the principal school becomes a promoter. of The Englishman who drops his h's says lovemaking is a lost 'eart. No man is quite satisfied with an in crease in salary unless it means less work. Polly Pinktights "She acknowledges that she pads, and yet she objects to wearing tights." Fanny Footlights "I suppose that's what you might call false modesty." Blobbs "Slllicus is not much of a con versationalist." Slobbs "That's because he never talks unless he has something; to say. and then he's afraid nobody will listen." Muggins "Once -when I was a small boy, I started to run away to sea on a whaler." Buggtns "What happened?" Muggins "My father interposed, but I got a taste of whaling, just the same." Why should we borrow grim sorrow? Tackle a jay while you may. Never put off till tomorrow What you can "do" today. Homeseekers' Excursion via Santa Fe Route. On July 3d and 17th we will sell tickets to points in Arkansas, Arizona.

New York, July 2. The search for bodies on the burned steamer Saale is attended with much difficulty. The ves sel's upper deck is awash aft and. her bow is seven feet deep In mud. Jt is believed that there are many bodies in the stock holds and trash in that part of the ship. Gangs of men are at work breaking up and removing cargo and iron gratings which bar the way. As soon as the cargo and iron work are re moved the Saale will be pumped out and floated. The fire is still burning in the hull of the Main. The vessel carried a crew of 137 men, of whom about seventy-five have been accounted for. The report as to the number of lives lost is still guess work. It is stated that about 125 of the burned steamship's crew are missing. These, other deck employes and other persons who perished will, it is thought, swell the death list to at least 200. Gustav Schwab, the agent of the North German Lloyd company, said to day: "The work of mustering the crews is still going on in Hoboken, and I think they will be ready to sail on the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse tomorrow. There are about 830 men. officers and crew. In examining the hospital records, we find that there are others injured, but able to travel. They will probably be sent with the rest of the men on the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse." At 11 o'clock today there were twenty two Hoboken fire patients in Bellevue hospital. Eleven had sufficiently recov ered to be discharged. All the others had much improved. None of the twenty-two are in danger of death. At 11 a. m. the bodies of two men were found at the foot of Fourth street, Hoboken, near the Thingvalla line pier. There was nothing on the bodies to identify them. About noon two bodies were found in the river near a float belonging to the Valencia boat club. One body appeared to be that of a fireman or an. engineer, and the other man was thought to be a longshoreman. ROOSEVELT AT "DEPOT. Receives a Royal Welcome in Topeka. As usual, in such cases, the special train bearing Governor Theodore Roosevelt and party pulled into the Santa Fe depot late. It was due at 11:05 and arrived at 11 :03. By 10 o'clock the crowd commenced to gather. At 11 o'clock th.e Republican fl.imbeau club arrived, headed by the Twenty-third regiment band. Then the crowd waited. The members of the local committee were worried and ran up and down the platform perspiring and wonder ing how late the train would be. The band played. Congressman Charles Cur tis arrived in a carriage with his right arm in a sling. He was cheered and did his usual handshaking. It was intended that he introduce Governor Roosevelt. At 11:30 the train whistled and the crowd "rubbered." "Here comes Teddy!" was the cry and the crowd made a rush for points of vantage. Congressman Curtis was hustled to a point on the platform where he could board the train. The en gine decorated with flags and sun flow ers appeared around the curve. The band plaved America and the crowd shouted. As the train pulled up to the platform the 2 500 people waiting to see the famous fighter cheered. The train stopped oppo site Congressman Curtis. A. K. Rodgers boosted him on the front platform of the governor's car. but by the time Mr. Cur tis reached the rear platform by going through the car, Governor Stanley, who was on the train, had introduced the Re publican candidate for vice president. The band was playing at a 20-knot rate and with steam up for all the afternoon. The crowd yelled for the band to stop but the players renewed their efforts. Finallv the stirring strains were stopped. The crowd was looking for Roosevelt. Ho was standing on the rear platform and bowed whsn Introduced, but he was not accepted as the genuine article until he stepped to the edge of the rear platform. Then he removed his hat. the sun shone full in his face and he grinned that grin which has made him a favorite with the cartoonists. "That's him." "Hurrah for Teddy!" He was recognized by the grin and the glasses. Governor Roosevelt immediately commenced the speech which the crowd was waiting for. He said he had a warm spot in his heart for Topeka and that his brother-in-law. Captain Cowles, was com mander of the U. S. S. Topeka. "I had a good many men from Kansas in my regiment." said the governor. "I should have liked to have been by the Twentieth Kansas during that great work in the Philippines. There are many men here who show by their buttons that they fought in the great war for what they believed was the right. We fought in the lesser war and did not fight so hard. It was not necessary. "I have been coming up this morning through your wonderful valley and look ing at the magnificent wheat and corn crop. Who made them grow? You did. Not laws. You can not pass laws that will make prosperity but you can pass laws that will stop prosperity. You can do no more by law than to give every American a chance to show thrift. That is what has been done for the past four '-Kansas is the center of the continent. Kansas' name is written in letters of gold across the Philippines. That is what Funston, Metcalf and the Twentieth Kan sas did. From east to west, froh the for-tv-ninth parallel to the Gulf of Mexico the American people rise and fall to gether. If one prospers all prosper. If one fails all fail. Deeds done by one American reflect credit on all Americans. Such deeds can not be done that all Amerlcars do not feel them. "Here we have a number of men from the railroad shops. I am not making po litical speeches except that I can't help saving what I believe. No men in my regiment did better than did the railroad men. Thev had led lives which taught them to obev and to think and to do. The best man alive who will not obey orders in a tight place Is better some where else. "Fundamentally you've got to have the same qualities for success in public life as in private life. Don't think because a man is smart vou can pardon dishonesty. "Is there anyone here who was ever in the cow business?" "Yes. vps. You bet." were the answers. "Well. then, vou all know what a mav erick is." continued Governor Roosevelt. "When I was on the range we branded all mavericks iw-ith the thistle brand. One day I was Tut with a man and we ran across a maverick. The man branded him with our brand. I said 'What are vou doing that for?' and he said. I al ways put on the boss' brand.' I told him to get his time, for If he would steal for me he would steal from me. "A man must have courace and com mon sense to be honest in public life and in private life. When a public man ad dresses you pay attention to him so far as he has made his word good." Jut then Congressman Curtis appeared on the platform. Governor Roosevelt had finished. Hello, congressman." he said, turning to the Kansas statesman and ex tending his hand. There were cries for "Curtis" but the congressman declined to speak. saying that his physician had forbidden it. Within half a minute after the close of the speech the train started. Three cheers were proposed and the governor of New York commenced bowing his acknowl edgments as the train sped on toward the Rough Riders" second reunion. The last the crowd saw of Roosevelt he was bowing and doffing his typical campaign hat. Silver Republican Tickets.

Senator Baker seems to have had the better of the contests for the nomina tion of Republican representatives on Saturday. The results so far as can be ascertained now were: In Kearney county Dr. Johnson was nominated for representative and in structed for Senator Baker. Two candidates for representatives were nominated in Franklin county. One was instructed for Senator Baker and the other declared himself for Sen ator Baker. Two representatives were nominated in Cowley county. A. Abrams was In structed for Senator Baker. In the Winfield district the Baker people say after nearly all the delegates had left the convention a motion -was carried by a small vote endorsing Mr. Burton, but Arthur Bango who was nominated is a strong Baker supporter and announced afterwards that he did not consider the endorsement of Mr. Burton by a small minority of the convention as binding upon him. Primaries were held in two represen tative districts in Lyon county and the Baker candidates won by large majori ties. . Mr. Dooley was nominated for repre sentative in Montgomery county. He announced himself as unpledged. Primaries were held in one represen tative district in Bourbon county. Both sides claim a victory. The convention will be held on the 6th. This is Col. J. H. Richard's home. One of the leaders of the Burton forces, and if the Baker men carry it it will be a serious blow to Mr. Burton's candidacy. MONET Alt! LEAGUE. Edward D. Stiles Announces His Affiliation With the Democracy. Kansas City, Mo., July 2. The United States monetary league began its ses sions today at the Auditorium. The meeting was the first of a two days' session of the league. Charles I. Thomp son of Denver, president of the league, called the meeting to order and intro duced Edward IX Stiles of Kansas City, as chairman, who read th call of the league. Mr. Styles followed with a brief speech in which he said that after thirty years of afftiation with the Republican party he was now ready to hand in his adhesion to the Democratic party. He charged that the Republican party had violated its promises on financial ques tions. He said the Republican party had now taken the place of Spain in the Philippines and was shooting down the patriots of the Philippines. On motion of Mr. "Coin" Harvey, a committee was appointed to prepare and report to the league a declaration of principles. The committee consists of W. H. Harvey, John P. St. John, Dr. A. A. Johnson of Colorado, Flavius J. VanVorhees of Indiana, A. Delmar of New York and James B. Weaver. Mr. Harvey, of Chicago, was intro duced as the first speaker and spoke on "The connection between money, trusts and imperialism." He said that in the last 40 years there had been organized in this country a band of money lenders. They met an nually and had finally succeeded in cor nering the supply of money ar.d con trolling it. By the act of the last con gress, the government had gone out of the business of issuing paper money, except as it was called for by the organ ization to which he ferred. Money in the hands of this organization was money to loan, and in this respect the object for which money was made is diverted. The scale of wages, he said, has not declined very much, but this had been nullified by strikes and labor agitations, the result of the trusts of money lenders organization. The Republican administration was also responsible for an increasing ten antry system in this country. The fight for civilization was now on by the Democratic party. It was more determined than it had ever been, and would never be given up until it won. The prosperity of which the Republi can party boasted so much was the re sult of the Spanish war and the demand caused by famine in India. He was in favor of the expansion of civilization and not of cruelty. At the conclusion -of Mr. Harvey's ad dress the league adjourned until 2 o'clock. BRYAN AND HILL TALK. Both Men Unite in a Pledge of Secrecy Regarding It. Lincoln, Neb., July 2. The conference between W. J. Bryan and David B. Hill of New York did not conclude un til midnight. When it was over Sen ator Hill was driven to a hotel and re tired immediately. He left at 5 a. m. for Kansas City. With him were Mayor McGulre of Syracuse, N. Y., and Eugene Hughes, also of New York.

It is believed, on the contrary, that the only subject discussed, except in cidental reference to other matters, was the platform, and -that their final con clusion on that document was about as outlined briefly in the Associated Press reports from this city last night, making imperialism, militarism and trusts the three leading issues, but with out relegating free silver. While Sena tor Hill evaded the newspaper men in Lincoln he was not so particular with the politicians. On the train from Ne braska City to Lincoln, last n'ght his companion was S. S. Alley, an old time Nebraska democrat, to whom he spoke with freedom, both on the platform and vice presidency. On the latter subject he is quoted as saying that he did not regard it as wholly essential that the nominee should come from the east. A good man from any of the central states he thousht would prove nearly as strong. New York, he declared, was not a doubtful state this year but cer tain to be democratic. As to the platform he favored con servatism in all its planks. The vice presidential boom of Congressman Sul zer which was at its height In Lincoln Saturday morning has died out almost as suddenly as it was sprung, and its Collapse was with the arrival at dif ferent hours of the three men from Sul zer's own state. Hill, McGuire and Hughes. Not one of these gentlemen disparaged the candidacy of Mr. Sulzer in any way, but it was plain they did not consider him the most available man. Aside from the gossip connecting Senator Hill's name with second place on the ticket, the names of Shively of Indiana and Mayor Harrison of Chicago are most frequently mentioned. Just be fore Senator Hill left he was asked what his programme would be when he reached his destination. "I have none mapped out," he re plied. "Did you and Mr. Bryan reach any agreement on the leading subjects now being discussed in connection with the convention?" "Mr. Bryan and I agreed before I left him not to say a word to the press about our conference. I must keep my prom ise." Senator Hill said his visit to Lincoln had been a pleasant one but the only subject he would talk about with news paper men was the weather. While Mr. Bryan insists that he will not attend the convention his friends believe it possible he will go at its con clusion. 40 BODIES RECOVERED. Property Losses at Hoboken Fire Up to Early Estimates. New York, July 2. Forty-six hours after the start of the fire in the North German Lloyd Steamship company docks at Hoboken the loss of life and property appears to be fully as great as first reports made them. Up to 3 o'clock this afternoon forty bodies had been recovered from the waters of the river. Bodies are being picked up al most every half an hour and at the turn of the tide this afternoon it is be lieved there will be many more bodies brought to the surface. Most of the bodies recovered are so blackened, shriveled and distorted by the action of fire and water that it is evident they suffered terribly. Identification can only be made in the most cases by little trinkets or adornments found near the bodies or on them. Masses of human flesh, charred and blackened beyond all sem blance of humanity, lie encased in the boxes at the morgues, and it is a hope less task for any one to distinguish the features of the corpses. Hundreds called at the morgue in this city at all hours of the day, and last night, seeking lost friends or relatives. In nearly every case it was an unsuc cessful quest. The bodies at the New York morgue include eleven of men and one woman. One of the men was identi fied by survivors of the Saale as that of August Waller, a machinist of the Saale. The loss of property sustained in the destruction of the ships, docks, ware houses and small river craft will ap proximate T6.129.000. The North German Lloyd line held to day to its estimate that their loss would be under $5,000,000. Mr. Campbell holds to his statement made last night that the losses in his warehouses would reach $5,000,000 for the buildings .hem selves and $1,250,000 for the content" The North German line today secured temporary headquarters and are going to upe what docks can be given them by the Pennsylvania Railroad company un til they can secure larger dock facilities to accommodate them pending the re building of the destroyed piers. Today they sent down to the pie; -3 and furnish ed money to any of their seamen or oth er employes who were found. Fourteen thousand dollars was distrbiuted to them and clothing and food were pro vided. About 2:30 p. m. a diver on the Saale reported that he had discovered eight bodies on that ship. One of these was on the main deck and the head and feet had been burned: The seven other bodies were found in the gangway lead ing from the steerage.
