The war department should lose no time in sending Gen. Funston to China. The attempt to civilize the Chinese appears not to have been in vain. They ehoot just like Christians. The editor of the Charlotte Observer Will support neither Bryan nor McKin leyf Well, there are others. Those young patriots who failed to see active service in Cuba, Porto Rico or the Philippines, may yet have a chance In China. These are great times for the maga zines, but they will be compelled to en large or fall behind with their war etoriea. The trust goes right on putting up the price of sugar, undisturbed by presiden tial campaign, the drouth or the news of wars. If Gen. Hancock were alive probably he would decide that the trust question Is a local one, as that would be in line with his views on the tariff. The apparent check In business shown by reports from the east appears to be merely the squeezing out of the water In last year's enormous transactions. The Chinese situation indicates that the days of the crusade, when all Chris tendom united against the Saracen are about to be revived on Asiatic soil. Those who believe that the close of a century is always marked by great events among which wars occupy a conspicuous place, are not disappointed. New York World: Of all the many ways of wasting human breath the prophesying in July what will take place in November of a presidential year is the silliest. The wars in the Philippines and in South Africa are reported as being end ed but neither Lord Roberts nor Gen. MacArthur is willing to spare any troops for service in China. The Chinese have long been noted as great imitators, but it was not expected that they would carry this distinguish ing characteristic to the extent they have done in the matter of shooting. THE TRUST QUESTION AN ISSUE IFrom Wanamaker's North American There are indications that the mana gers of the Republican campaign are disposed to treat the question of trusts as a non-political matter and an issue of no importance to the people. There is an anti-trust plank, brief, general and fcomewhat indefinite, in the platform, but in the speeches of notification and acceptance at Canton not a word was uttered about trusts; the subject was carefully and significantly avoided. This silence is made more significant by Postmaster General Smith's declara tion that the trust question is purely a business matter and not a political is sue. It is a business matter, but so is the currency question and so is the tar iff, and if those are political Issues, the trust question is a political issue of the first magnitude. The Republican party can no more eidetrack the trusts than the Democrats ran sidetrack silver in this campaign, and it will make a grievous mistake if it attempts to dodge tTie issue. Why was the trust plank put into the platform if the question is not an issue in the cam paign? Is it there for padding, for bun combe or to give Mr. Quigg a chance to air hl3 rhetoric? The Democracy has declared its atti tude toward the trusts, and the Repub lican party will find it very necessary before next November to meet that de claration with equally unequivocal statements of what it proposes to do to check the aggressions of massed capi tal and bring the Illegal combinations known as trusts under reasonable con trol. A few politicians may think they can divert attention from this issue and juggle with the platform with impunity, but they mistake the temper of the peo ple and the depth of their interest in the subject. The people are not asleep, and they know very well that the abuse of corporate privilege is inimical to their interests. They look to the government for relief from present conditions through legislation that shall curb the rapacity of trusts and make them in struments of industrial development in stead of trade restriction and oppres sion, and the party that fails to prom ise that relief is likely to hear some thing unpleasant when the returns come in. It will be wise for the campaign man agers to pull the trust question from the sidetrack to the main line and hook it to the train before the XIcKInley ex press gets under full way and out of sight around the curve. GLOBE SIGHTS. rFrom the Atchison Globe. A man is always suspicious of his wife's comforters. The first thing a young doctor does is to invent a specific for cancer, and his next move is to invent a specific for consumption. A man has good luck enough when his daughters marry, if he doesn't have to send out relief expeditions to them every few months. It often happens that people sing jubilantly at church, "We Shall Know Kach Other There," who refuse to know each otlier here. It can usually be said with safety to any woman, whose favor is sought, that she has too much ambition and energy for her strength. It is sometimes the case that so much time is spent in teaching the dog to speak for his dinner, that the children are not taught to say please. We have noticed that in all newspa per accounts of great men, it is stated that the great men love books next to their wives and their mothers. A woman is perfectly willing for her husband to have a good time, if he can have it doing just what she says, in her way, and with the company she selects. We are hearing people say, "I'll never go over to the lake again with" so-and-so. You get along with some people well enough, if you meet them on the streets occasionally, but go with them for a little trip, and they will set you wild. They want to boss everything. As soon as they find out what you want to do, they want to do the contrary. It is an illustration of the old fact that if you were com pelled to spend a great deal of time with some people, they would set you crazy. These people whose "ways" set you crazy, may be worthy, and others may enjoy being with them, but it is necessary in this world to select your company: to rind people you can "get along with" without exercising pa tience.

July 17. News reach ed here today of the death of J. M. Meneck upon the desert of southern Utah. Meneck left here June 24 in com pany with four others for southern Utah in quest of a far famed lost cop per mine. He became greatly fatigued from the fearful heat. The party went into camp and Meneck started out upon a prospecting our. He did not return and his companions who searched for him, four days in vain, have no doubt that he perished. Meneck was a repre sentative of the Smithsonian institution and was making a careful story of that section of the country. He was about 50 years of age. He was a graduate of Johns Hopkins university. STAGGERS HOPE. Conflict of Dates Discovered in Chinese Dispatches. London, July 17. S:50 p. m. The for eign office informs the Associated Press taht a telegram identical with the one handed to Secretary Hay at Washing ton by Minister Wu Ting Fang, has been delivered to it by the Chinese min ister here, which was sent by Sheng, the administrator of telegraphs at Shanghai. The foreign office points out, however, that the date (July 9) prob ably applies to Chinese calendar, and is equivalent to July 5 according to the Gregorian Reckoning. Tours in the Rocky Mountains. The "Scenic Line of the World," the Denver & Rio Grande railroad, offers to tourists in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico the choicest resorts, and to the trans-continental traveler the grandest scenery.

"This automobile craze is taking the entire country," said Ed Myers at the National yesterday evening, "and. it is not only the pleasure loving people who have got the fever. I was out in "Cali fornia last week and I saw the automo bile used in a business way that is cal culated to make the railroads think con cerning their future. Getting their out put from the mines to the railroad in southern California has always been a serious problem with the operators, but the automobile will solve it sure as fate. A big mining concern out there which has been compelled to haul their stuff miles over the desert with great wagons to which are hitched 40 mules, decided to adopt the automobile and had one built which is a wonder. I suppose you would call it an automobile but it is really a gasoline truck which is of 40 horse power and will have five tons of material and an additional five tons in a trailer, making ten tons the machine will haul from the mines to the railroad. The truck is 20 feet in length and 7 feet wide and with an average of 25 gallons of gasoline a day will haul ten tons from 50 to SO miles. The tires are ten inches wide and the machine makes its own road. It would not surprise me if the automobile would revise the busi ness of the country. At any rate, if they improve the construction as they have in everything else, and reduce the cost of the machine at the same time, the only business left for the railroads will be long hauls and they will have to re duce the rate an that." "There are a great many storie3 told of Governor Eskridge," said a newspa per man at the Copeland last night, "and I suppose there is truth in many of them. He was very vindictive and if he once disliked a man he never overcame his dislike and would do all he could to get even. He was a Lane man in early days of Kansas and he thoroughly hated Chas. Robinson and his friends. He used to go to great lengths in the local political fights in Emporia and would accuse his opponents cf most anything and in a number Of cases proved it. His enmity of Senator Plumb, Major Hood, I. E. Lambert and W. F. Ewing was always cropping out in his paper and was the result of po litical fights that had been forgotten by most people. I was in his office one day and he got confidential as he sometimes did. 'Do you see that safe?" he Inquired. 'That safe contains the history of a lot of fellows around this town and when they get too smart I will spring some thing on them. I have got their history from away beck before they ever dreamed of coming to Kansas and a lot of it will make mighty racy reading.' It was true and he held many a man in check who would have gone contrary to his wishes had he not been afraid that his past would be printed. For the past eight years, however, he did very little fighting and had no use for his ancient history t.hich he had salted in an early day." "A great number of men lost money on eggs last year," said a produce man who was talking w;ith a friend at the Throop. "They started In early to buy eggs for the purpose of storing for spec ulation expectin the market to rise but they made a great mistake and it seems to me any ordinary business man should have known better. Eggs were selling all the year at about 12 cents, the price remaining there becaues the spec ulators were buying all the time and storing. You know an egg can be stored a year and then be as fresh as it was the day it was put in. It costs about 2Vi cents to candle, handle, and store eggs and when you add that to the 12 cents they paid, you can see how they came out. And that doesn t Include the in terest on the money, for most of it was borrowed capital. Eggs are reasonable now and it is probable that the firms that are storing will make some money. Did you ever learn what the egg buyers do with their dirty and misshapen eggs? You know they don't pack that kind. Nothing but the clean well shaped egg is packed. Say that eggs are bring ing 8 cents on the market, the packer will sell his dirty eggs to the grocer for 6 cents and the grocer can make money by selling at 8 cents. This is why you frequently see some grocers selling eggs at 3 cents while others are charging 10 cents. Of course the packer is losing a little, but he can't use the dirty eggs in his business and the fact that they are selling at a certain grocery store for 8 cents will keep the farmer from asking more than that for his. It's a very cute scheme on the part of the packer and there is more money in it than there would be in trying to wash the eggs or whiten the shell with chemicals." Suggestions For Summer Vacations.

KING, Agent, Santa Fe Route, Topeka, Kan- There are times when a horse knows more than a man; when instinct is superior to reason. The horse fights against being forced over the brink of a precipice which he can see in the dark but which is veiled from the man's eyes. It is often the same with a man's body; it fights- against carry ing the man over the brink of the preci pice, disease. When the heart beats irreg ularly; when there are pains in the head, ringing in the ears, cough, indigestion, loss of appetite and lack of energy some or all of these symp toms the body is on the brink of danger and is crying " halt 1 " No man need be r-inA ..-- .1. 1 , V -.

TO NAMEJERKES Kentucky Republicans Meet in State Conyention. Convention Hall, Louisville, Ky., July 171:30 P. M. The Auditorium was nearly full of delegates and visitors to the Republican state convention. Flags and bunting and pictures, of McKinley, W. S. Taylor, John W. Yerkes and W. O. Bradley ornament the building. At 2 p. m. the convention was called to or der by G. M. Barnet, chairman of the state central committee, who presented the name of ex-Lieutenant Governor John Marshall for temporary chairman. Mr. Marshall was unanimously chosen by the convention. He made an ad dress of some length, dealing with. Ken tucky political affairs. "Never has there been gathered in this state a body of men who have been called together under similar circum stances to nominate a candidate for governor. "One year ago at Lexington our party met and named candidates for all of the state offices. After a campaign that at tracted the attention of the whole coun try and surpassed in intensity and ar dor any ever held in this state, our opponents were forced to declare that every man on that ticket had been elected. And, yet in a few months after that de claration, by an edict repulsive to ev ery principle of justice the men so so named were deprived of their offices, and denounced as usurpers for making an attempt to perform the duties that devolved upon them. It is almost im possible to believe that such a thing could have occurred in our midst. But, it has come, and we stand in the pres ence of one of the greatest dangers that has so far confronted free government on this continent. "Three men have disfranchised the state and the voters in the city of Lou isville and in the mountains of Ken tucky and a bare majority in the legis lature have declared elected to the po sition of governor and lieutenant eov- ernor men who received a minority of iuc vuLta cast. "An outrage has been committed against civil government, hut it ic nnt fair, as yet to charge that against the Democratic party. The masses of the ucmwanio party are fair-minded, llh. erty loving people. They have not yet apiuuveu me roui wrong committed by their false servants, and I can not be lieve that the rank ond file of that, or ganization would deliberately approve acts mat are destructive of the very foundation of civil government. That party under Jefferson, Tilden and Cleveland, always commanded the re spect of its opponents and exercised a powerful infiuneee in directing the af fairs of this government. But woefully has it fallen from its high estate. The men who haveadded lustre to its fame in! this state have been insulted and driven from its ranks and men not worthy to stand In their places have succeeded to leadership. "Carlisle, Lindsay, Buckner and Breckenridge, national figures for whom every Kentuckian, regardless of party respected and admired have been spurned and cast aside. And Brown, that patriot, who regardless of personal sacrifice threw himself into the breach to save his state from disgrace, has been denounced as a traitor and a rene gade. Deluded as they have been, the rank and tile of the party can not be so dead to every principle of justice and right as to approve the foul wrong that has been done in their name. "Blinded bv partisan zpal. or npnnlv. ed by party organs, it may be they do not yet understand the enormity of the crime that has been committed by their representatives. They have been told in this city 10,000 men have been in timidated by the state militia under the command of a Republican governor wnen every lalr-minded man in the community knows that the presence of the militia was an assurance of good order and a protection against a riot tnat might be destructive of life and property. The claim of tissue ballots was even more unfounded than the charge of in timidation. . 1 ne vote in tnose counties was the same as had been cast in other elections, and the same character of bal lots Had been used in Democratic coun ties as in those thrown out. In addition these ballots were all furnished bv the state, and it is contrary to all principles of justice to put it within the power of any county clerk to utterly disfranchise the people of his own county. The peo ple of this state have not forgotten how the committees to try the gubernatorial contest were selected, nor their ruling in excluding and limiting the time for the presentation of evidence. They have not forgotten how a bare majority of the leg islature without notice, evidence or hear ing adopted the findings of these commit tees disfranchising thousands 01 the citi zens of this state. "The assassination of Mr. Goebel was no justification for such highhanded pro ceedings. The people of the state and the parties to these contests had a right to a fair trial of these issues that could not be destroyed by any vicious or blind political fanatic. The assassination was abhorent to every manly instinct, and who ever committed so cowardly and dastard ly an act deserves the severest sentence of the law. "The people of the state must express their condemnation of the wrongs that have been committed in their state and let Kentucky once more gain that posi tion to which she is entitled in the sister hood of the states. We believe they will rise equal to the occasion. We appeal not alone to the Republicans and to these men who refused to vote for Mr. Goebel, but to the citizen of the state regardless of party. The Democratic party under the old system of appointing the officers carried this state in many an election. Give us a fair and non-partisan law. and If they can be honestly successful the Republican party will make no com laint. Better a thousand times that party should be in power than that our present conditions should continue with the citizens of the state in political slav ery under the domination of three men responsible to no one." The convention expects to nominate John W. Yerkes. of Danville, for gov ernor, finish its business and adjourn by 5 o'clock p. m. A feature of the conven tion was the giving of three cheers for Mrs. W. S. Taylor, wife of the former Re publican governor, who with four of her daughters occupied a box in the audi torium.

Chaney has returned from a business trip through western Kansas and he reports the wheat crop even greater than the stories told of it. "The wheat crop is immense," said Mr. Chanev. "At Larned they have worked every day and Sunday and on moonlight nights. Finally the stores were closed and all able bodied clerks went to work in the fields. William Scott of that city looks after a great deal of land for himself and lor eastern owners. He had 18 headers at work and his expenses ran $500 a day. Headers are being used for the reason tnat tney are cheaper and this year the straw is very long. Saturday is settling up day and beats Santa Fe pay day. This is the same story at other places ail over the Btate. "Land this year that will actually pro duce $15 an acre will not sell for $5 an acre. Tenants are making enough from their wheat crops to buy the land ana have money left. People this year are not borrowing but instead are paying off their debts and those who are mak ing loans are making them temporarily, Money that is being loaned goes at a low rate of interest. The best indiea tion of good times is the sale of farm lands at increased prices and the fact that 95 per cent of lands sold go to people in the state instead of outsiders. Land is generally sold to land owners adjoining. This means that Kansas farmers are using their surplus money to add to their holdings. Four or five years ago the sales that were made were to people coming Into the state. OF TWO EVILS. Mr. Bryan Believes Anti-Imperialists Will Choose the Lesser. Lincoln, Neb., July 17. William J. Bryan was asked today if the anti-imperialist vote would be seriously af fected by the announcement of the op ponents of imperialism that they will oppose him on account of the silver plank in the platform. He replied: . "Several gold standard opponents of imperialism have already announced their intention to support tne uemo erat ticket although the anti-imperial istic league has not acted officially. In such a matter each individual is gov erned by his own views as to the rela tive importance of the Issues. The Dem ocratic platform declares the question of imperialism to be the paramount is sue. If any opponent of imperialism refuses to support the Democratic ticket, because of the silver plank it must be because he considers the money question more important than the Phil ippine question; that is, he prefers a gold standard empire to a bimetallic re public. "When the test comes I believe that those who adhere to the doctrine that governments derive their Just powers not from superior force but trom tne consent of the governed, will support our ticket even though they do not en dorse the silver plank. A large majority of the Democrats believe that a restora tion of bimetallism would prove a bless ing but the anti-imperialists who dis pute this will admit that any evils that might arise from bimetallism could be corrected more easily than the evils which would follow from the deliberate endorsement of militarism and imperial ism." WORLD C. E. OFFICERS Clark Is Elected President and Baer Secretary. London, July 17. Although young la dles were carried out of the crowded meetings fainting and overcome by heat, the enthusiasm marking the convention of the Young People's society of Chris tian Endeavor at the Alexandra palace grounds was today as strong as ever. The delegates burst into song today with the same boundless enthusiasm as heretofore. The morning was given up to demonstrations of the world-wide ex tent of the Endeavor movement. Anx ious inquirie sfrom ministers whose names appeared on the programme were largely the result of delay in travel caused by the burning of the tseamship Saale in New York harbor. John Willis Baer, speaking of the growth of the movement, said the Christian Endeavor badge was worn by more than one brawny Briton from her. majesty's ship Powerful in the famous siege of Lady smith. Mr. Baer strongly demanded that arbitration between Great Britain and America be made compulsory. "Cod may come and seals may go," said he, "and boundary lines be held in dispute, but palsied be the hand and mute the tongue that should again suggest strife and bloodshed between America and Great Britain." The Rev. Francis E. Clark, president of the Society of Christian Endeavor, deliv ered the presidential address. He spoke of Christian endeavor In the far east "in progressive Japan, in distracted China, and with hopeful beginnings in Korea." His tour of the world, Mr. Clark said, had convinced him that "the Christian En deavor tree would bear fruit in any soil." Describing the greetings he had received everywhere Mr. Clark said that in China it was "peace, peace, peace." The Rev. Mr. Francis E. Clark and Mr. John Willis Baer were elected respect ively world's president and secretary of the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor. They and other prominent members of the society will go to Paris to attend the Christian Endeavor conven tion there July 22. Mr. Clark will be occupied in attending various European conventions of Christian Endeavorers un til September X. CUD AH AY'S OPENING. Branch Souse in Topeka to Be Form ally Installed Tomorrow.

Two men employed on the federal building fell this morning while raising a stone with a derrick. The derrick slipped and one man was thrown from the first floor to the basement, a fall of 14 feet and immediately got up, climbed a ladder and resumed his work. The other caught a rope and climbed back to his work. Neither man was injured and it is probable that they will not be docked for the time lost in falling. Mike Kelley and Arch Bailey were ar rested again yesterday on the charge of selling liquor. These men have been ar rested so often that they have become used to it and probably would consider themselves neglected if they were not 'pulled at least once a week. Although these men have not been convicted the policy of the mayor is to keep pulling them until their business is broken up. The city engineer has asked the coun cil to take some action in the matter of enforcing his request to people to fix their area-ways and broken sidewalks. There has never been a penalty provided and all the city engineer can do is re quest and he has requested without re sult. The matter will come before the council this evening.
