The Kansas City convention needs a Mark Hanna to guide it in the line of plain duty and keep it in order. The enthusiasm at the silver Repub lican convention was so great that it broke out at the close of the invoca tion. The -war in China Is but one of hun dreds which have grown out of the ef forts of one religion to supplant an other. The public debt decreased $14, 897,553 during June. A few more such months would make it possible to express tie total in nine figures. When we collect an indemnity from China, why not make it big enough to pay the pensions which will be asked for by the wounded- Americans and the relatives of those killed? David B. Hill is proving to be the source of an immense amount of trouble at Kansas City, considering that he came put west in the character of the great harmonizer and pacificator. The gold Democrats who bolted In 1898 rather than sacrifice their prin ciples by remaining in the party, can't understand why Colonel Bryan should persist in refusing to surrender his principles in this year 1900. A surplus of government receipts over expenditures amounting to up wards of SI millions for the fiscal year Just ended is shown by the statement issued by the treasury department. That is nearly enough to pay for the Nicaragua canal. Pittsburg Dispatch: The humorists of the press are now beginning to find fault because the Prohibitionists did Tint havp a man nnmeti Wilfi to nut on the ticket with Mr. Woolley. Some people need a good deal of extraneous aid In- the manufacture of their wit. CAUSE OP BOXER MOVEMENT. Some light is shed upon the "boxer" uprising by translations from the Chi nese book of Kang-Yu-Wei. These translations have been made by the Norfh China Herald. The theme of the author is the danger that Chinamen will be driven out of China with no where to go, or be exterminated. From the translations a few sentences are selected: "Russia has ejected the Hebrews, 160,000 having been driven forth. Twenty-four hours were allowd them to get beyond the Russian boundaries. They could sell neither their lands nor houses, and could take with them only a little ready money. More over, when elected from Russia they tiad no native land to which to turn. Long ago Palestine had been parceled out among its powerful neighbors. "Our race will be destroyed. See how Russia has treated Poland! The Rus sians banished all the able-bodied men and allowed only the old men to re main in the country. Therefore the Polish race has been exterminated. At present the women of India are married to foreigners. Everybody knows that the races of India are in danger of being exterminated. Today the white races predominate over the entire globe. Among the vellow races the Chinese only wield any political influence and rule their own country. If our country should be conquered and its government controlled by foreigners they would as suredly treat ua as they have treated the Poles and the Hindus. We, our children, and our grandchildren, would lie altogether exterminated." There is more to the same purport. Japan, only, is excepted from, the list of enemies. "China and Japan hold the same close relationship to each other as do the lips to the teeth," says the author. He refers to the size of China, larger than sixteen powers of Europe, with 400,000,000 people, yet "we are despised, insulted, and mur dered by other people." There is an appeal to the Chinese who live beyond the seas "numbering at least 5,000, 000" who "are also daily abused and Irsuited by those among whom they live," and the whole is concluded by a fierce denunciation of the dowager empress and the incompetent govern ment at Pekin. GLOBE SIGHTS. " ' rFrom the Atchison Globe.l A man always holds it up against his mother when she refused to let him learn to swim in his boyhood. If you are philosophical when it rains on a picnic, it is a sign that you are really too old to be attending a pic nic. When a new hammock is put up, the man of the house doesn't get a chance to try It until the neighbors' children nave worn it out. An Atchison woman, who Is the mother of nine children, knows how to swim, and none of her children can swim, although five of them are boys. When girls go oft to the woods, peo ple think it is to pick flowers, but a boy can't go near a tree without being accused of a desire to- rob birds' nests. There are two sides to every story. Now, maybe, if some of Mendelssohn's Mighbors .were still on earth, we would hear that he was as' big a nuisance with his practicing as any body. An Atchison girl is so old fashioned that she is pining over a disappointed love affair, instead of putting on her prettiest shirt waist, and going out to hustle up a new one. About the only time that a woman will admit that her husband knows more about taking care of children than she does, is when there are fire crackers to be shot off.

From the Philadelphia Record. A sun spot the freckle. Cash down is the thing that feathers many a man's nest. A fever has to be pretty high for a fellow not to get over it. It takes a traveled actor to master the role of the steamship. The pedestrian is one man who puts his whole sole into his work.

Ware, the author of "Hello, Kansas," for twenty years, and personally as a neighbor for five years. Mr. Ware is not a bad man as his screed perhaps indicates, but in fact is a big hearted, brainy and agreeable citizen, well liked by his neighbors. However, if "Ware's Woe," or "Hello, Kansas," was intended only to circulate among his friends and acquaintances It might be considered clever, but as a serious pro duction for outside circulation, to go forth to the world as an authoritative voice from Kansas, "Hello, Kansas," is mali cious and unpatriotic rot. The writer readily agrees with Paint Creek in many things, especially in that demagogues of all political parties are detrimental to the material welfare of the state. However, the rank and file of all parties in Kansas are too intelligent to be unduly influenced by would-be statesmen any longer. Kansas will be all right no matter what party wins in the state or nation. I desire to call attention to some ac cepted, non-partisan facts. 1. Prohibition has done more good than harm. 2. The state is out of debt. 3. The farm mortgaged indebtedness of Kansas is practically settled. 4. The farmers are In better plight than ever before in the history of the state, and farm land is in better demand and at higher prices thas ever before. 5. No state in the Union has a more intelligent class of American citizens than Kansas. 6. Kansas agriculturally in 1900 Is the most prosperous portion of agricultural America. 7. "Kansas is all right, you bet; no flies on her." In view of the foregoing facts. It is not strange that the deductions and con clusions of Paint Creek make his friends very tired, one which I am whom. AN ADMIRING NEIGHBOR. Cure For Cholera Infantum Never Known to Fail.

Ware's "Hello, Kansas," was written by one of the highest Judicial of ficers in Kansas: To leave, or not to leave; that's the conundrum Whether 'tis better to' remain among these whiskered Pops, And their calamitous howls about out-, rageous fortune; Or to skin out for Connecticut. To emi grate. And by migration says we end the stom ach ache. And that frequent natural thirst. That prohibition doth bring on, 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To sell out and leave; To leave! perchance to wish we hadn't. Ay, there's the rub; For after leaving what dreams may come. When we have shuffled off the dust of Kansas soil. Of back alley ways to get in again. Must give us pause. But in respect to the calamities That befell the taking off of Ingalls' life, 'Tis hard to bear the burdens of the time: The moving off to Oklahoma. The babies Refusal to be born. The raising hell. Instead of corn. The Dutchman s Halting 'cross the line in old Missouri; The insolence of office, when the other fellow's in it; The laws 'gainst Scully buying up the land; The horse laugh the Fusionist doth give. When he runs in his man. The many other Jokes A fellow has to take, when he himself Might his exit make, out of the blasted country. Who'd these fardels bear, to grunt and sweat some more of weary life. But that the dread of something after going To the far-off wooden nutmeg country; The fear that one hath made himself an Puzzles ' the will, and makes ua rather stay at home Until the liver's normal function is re stored. HAMLET. RICHER, NOT POORER. Better Not Worse Out of Debt and Money in Bank. 'We have been treated by "A Tired Man" with an over-dose of the calamity howl, beside which all the past howls pale into insignificance. Statistics are handled with such profusion that it is be wildering to the average reader. While we have nearly double the amount of money on deposit in banks as compared with 1SV0, and the amount carried out side of banks is also greater, we are told that we are poorer now than we were ten years ago. While we were then in debt to the eastern money lenders a few hundred millions that we nave paid off in the time named, and our valuations have been reduced from the boom tigures to actual value, because we do not show a large increase in the assessed valuations, we are going to the dogs financially, and because we have nailed the rum power by a prohibition law, and have the hardi hood to stand by our constitutional amendment in the making and enforce ment of laws which restrict the sale of liquors, we are going to the dogs morally. Since 1890 the territory south of us has been opened up to settlement and where there was a family at least to each sec tion in the western half of the state at that time, there is not a family to ten sections now. the grazing lands upon which settlement was made at that time having been reclaimed for grazing purposes. It does not require an array of statistics to prove these facts. The fall of Mr. Ingalls was due to his being too great a man for his party, and petty jealousies and rivalry among the political bosses, quarrelling over the spdils of office caused his defeat and that of his partv. The speech of Ingalls in the Senate in 1878 in support of free coin age of silver was one of his most bril liant efforts, and he was a firm adherent to the doctrine as long as- he was in the senate. In February. 1S90, Senator P. B. Plumb introduced and championed the bill which declared for nothing else than the free coinage of silver with gold at sixteen to one. This is history, not mere assertion. The Republican platform adopted at Minneapolis on June 9th, 1S92, says, "The American people, from tradition and in terest, favor bimetallism, and the Re publican partv demands the use of both gold and silver as Standard money." It seems that the so-called Silver Republican has some basis for his contention, but this "Tired Man" who came to this state with little more than lie could carry in his grip and is now worth many thous ands, disposes of the whole question by trying to ridicule those who have consis tency at least. It seems that this "Tired Man" Is lay ing too much stress on party. No party holds all the good men, and vice versa, no other party holds all the bad men. . The spirit of Intolerance is despicable in any man or party of men. Respectfully, A. E. AGRELIUS. Lindsborg. Kansas, July 2, 1900. Tourist Rates to Colorado and Utah.

A result of re cent consultations of the secretary of war with Lieutenant General Miles, commanding the army. General Wood, commanding the division of Cuba, or ders were issued today for the return of the United States from Cuba as soon as possible of the Second, Sixth and Eighth regulars of infantry. These regiments are scattered over the Island and probably will not be able to start home for a. week or ten days. They will be brought to the port of New Tork and their stations will be determined before they will reach that point. The recall of the Cuban troops is the first step of the war department's plan to replace the volunteer army in the Philippines with troops of the regular army. It was intended to begin the homeward movement of the volunteers in the Philippines next November but deplorable state of affairs In China un doubtedly will cause the military au thorities to hasten the departure of the outgoing troops as much as possible with a view of using them for the pro tection of American interests in China, in ease it is found necessary to divert them from their original destination at Manila, STEVENSON INTERVIEWED.

Topeka Fire Department Prevented All Serious Fires. The report of the national board of underwriters for 1899 gives the Topeka fire department a rating of 100 per cent for efficiency. The efficiency of a department is found from the service rendered by the department and Is determined mostly upon the confining of the Are to the building where it started. During 1899 the Topeka department confined every fire to the building where it originated which is considered by the insurance companies to be thoroughly satisfactory work. The report shows 145 alarms for the year while the average number of alarms received each year for eight years was 138. All of the fires where confined to the buildings where they started and 142 were confined to the floors where they started. The total val ue of property involved by fire was J779.280. The total loss thereon was $67,778. The total insurance thereon was $364,889 and the total insurance loss was $62,448. The loss per capita was $1.69. The report shows 2,432 brick or stone buildings in the city and 9,882 frame buildings.- There were during the year 38 fires in stone and brick buildings and 79 in frame buildings and 28 fires not in buildings. The Topeka department has made an excellent record as shown by the table below giving a few cities the size of Topeka and some larger.

Nearly Every Marine Company Af fected by the Hoboken Fire. New Tork, July 6. Nearly every ma rine Insurance company In the world will suffer to a greater or less extent from the fire at the North German Lloyd dock. President Raven of the Atlantic uMtual Marine Insurance com pany said he did not think the loss on piers, buildings and property on piers would exceed $3,000,000. Mr. Raven did not care to state for what amount his company would be hit, because he had not, as yet, sufficient data which to base a reliable estimate. The London Assur ance company said they were involved, but couldn't say to what extent. The assistant secretary of the Continental Insurance company said that his com pany would lose just $5,400 by the fire. Hagadorn & Co., the insurance agents for the North German Lloyd company, said that $625,000 would cover the loss on pier and buildings. According to the best Information ob tainable the following companies will have to settle losses, ranging from $15, 000 to $75,000 each: The Royal Insurance company, Liverpool ;Liverpool and Lon don and Globe, Palatine, Manchester, England; Home Fire of New oYrk, Agri cultural of Watertown, N. W. ;Norwich Union, England; Scottish-Union and National, England; Union Assurance Society, London; North British and Mercantile, London; German-American, New York; Pennsylvania Fire of Phil adelphia and the Weed & Kennedy company. The losses on the small boats and lighters will, it is said, fall chiefly on the Smith & Hicks agency and on the British Fire and Marine In surance company. Insurance men did not hesitate to say that one of the Immediate results of this fire would be a raising of insurance rates on ships and cargoes at and on piers. It was also said that the question of building all piers of iron or stone, as well as equipping all piers with com plete fire apparatus, would be immed iately taken up. Insurance men were also talking about the probability of changing the reading of what is known as the "floating policy contract." This contract protects "the prop erty of the assured or held by the assured in trust or on commission or on joint account with others, or sold but not delivered, while contained in any or all the bonded warehouses, general or der stores or brick and stone storage stores, and while in transitu in or on any of the streets, yards, wharves, piers and bulkheads, in the cities of New oYrk, Brooklyn, Jersey City and Hoboken, and while afloat in transitu in the ports of said cities." This kind has for years been the most profitable issued by insurance com panies, the rate being 1H Per cent. Sat urday's fire has shown the possibility of losses under this contract and it was said that unless itsreadlngwas changed, companies would not be so desirous to write such policies in the future. Another thing discussed in insurance circles was the stipulation in marine contracts for insurance to the effect that the liability shall attach several days after a vessel reaches its pier. This stipulation will, it is said, result ir. a great loss falling on all companies which insured the cargoes brought in by any of the four North German Lloyd liners, since much of the cargo brought in by each vessel was still on board. White Man Turned Yellow. . Great consternation was felt by the friends of M. A. Hogarty of Lexington, Ky when they saw he was turning yel low.

The American civil engineers were shown over Windsor castle this afternoon. After tea the queen drove in the grounds, and at her special request the representative Amer ican visitors were presented to het car riage by Sir Douglas Fox, the president of the British organization. President Wallace of the American civil engi neers, and Mrs. Wallace, and President Morgan of the American mechanical engineers, and Mrs. Morgan, were pre sented to the queen, who was most af fable. Her majesty said she hoped her visitors were having a pleasant time and said she was delighted to have the American engineers "look over my castle." After a few such remarks, and hoping the visitors would have a profit able stay, the queen was driven away. Mr. Wallace said: "I was never more courteously treated. I am surprised to flr.d the queen looking so well and so young. From her kindly, bright, clear eyes, one would never have thought she had attained the age she has." WALL PAPER TRUST QUITS Reason: It Doesn't Pay Plants to Revert to Old Owners. New York, July S. At the annual meet ing of the directors of the National Wall Paper Comuanv. to be held on July 17 in the general offices of the company, 127 Crosby street, the aavisarjiuty or a disso lution of the company will be discussed. Henry Burns, president of the company, made this statement yesterday: "From time to time rumors of an im pending dissolution of the National Wall Paper company have appeared in the press. Although tne suDject may nave been Informally discussed among the var ious stockholders, there was no basis for an announcement that such dissolution would take place. During the past few weeks, however, the subject has received serious consideration on the part of the directors and of the large stockholders, and at the annual meeting, which is to be held on the 17th inst., the matter will be fuliv considered and definite action will probably be taken. The reasons which have been urged in support of favorable action on such a proposition are in brief: "That although the company has now been in existence for eight years and has done a large business, its profits have not been commensurate with the expectations of the stockholders, due to the fact that its existence has to such an extent stim ulated competition that the number of plants engaged in the manufacture of wall paper has in that period practically doubled. "It has also been demonstrated that the manufacture of wall paper involves ele ments of so peculiar a nature that it can not be as successfully conducted through the medium of a combination as It can through independent isolated plants. In dividual taste and the personality of the manufacturer play an Important part, which in a combination consisting of numerous plants is apt to be overlooked. "For these and other reasons the en tire board of directors, who themselves constitute a majority of the stockhold ers, and who are acting from a sincere conviction that they are thereby pro moting the interests of all concerned, favor a dissolution of the corporation. The Indebtedness of the company is nominal and w-ill be paid in full before any action looking toward dissolution is taken. A plan is being matured which will in all probability result in the ac quisition of the various plants by those who were identified with them prior to their sale to the National Wall Paper company.
