TOY KANSAS AND 1904.
, From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Nebraska, according to the expressions
of some of its papers, appears to be sur
prised that it is not mentioned con
spicuously in connection with the semi
centennial celebration which is to be
held In Kansas In 1904, commemorating
the organization of Kansas as a terri
tory. Both Kansas and Nebraska were
organized as territories by the same act,
that which was signed by President
Tierce on May 30, 1S54. In fact, Nebras
. ka. Is dealt with In that act before Kan
sas is mentioned. The whole region, in
deed, comprised in the territories of
Kansas and Nebraska was originally in
tended to be organized as the territory
of Nebraska, without any mention of
Kansas as a political or geographical
It would seem from these circum
stances, if the matter is viewed super
ficially, that there would be as much
reason to have a semi-centennial or a
centennial of the territorial act of 1S34
held in Nebraska as in Kansas, or mere
reason. But in this as in many other
cases the superficial view would be de
lusive. The fight between the North and
the South to gain possession of the
region organized by the act of May 30
of that year was in Kansas almost en
tirely. The South had no hope of cap
turing Nebraska. Its leaders saw that
slavery could not be planted in the ter
ritory of Nebraska in sufficient measure
and maintained there to give any chance
to that Institution to hold its ground
when the state government displaced the
territorial regime. Nebraska was prac
tically given up to the free state men
by the South from the start.
In Kansas, however, the fight was
perious and protracted. Kansas' location
to the south of Nebraska gave a better
chance for the planting of slavery in It
than was offered in the other territory.
It could be reached quicker from the
slave states than could Nebraska. On
Kansas' eastern border was a slave
state, Missouri. These were decisive con
siderations with the slavery element, and
incited a long and fierce contest for the
possession of Kansas, which ended with
the triumph at the free state side
through its preponderance In population
and resources, but Kansas, with its free
state constitution, was not admitted to
the union until after the withdrawal of
many of the South's representatives
from the senate In January, 1861, on
the secession of their states. The semi
centennial celebration of the creation of
the territories of Kansas and Nebraska
will be an interesting affair, in which
the entire United States will have great
concern, as It hastened the civil war of
lSGl-'65, but the event to be commemo
rated has a far closer relation to the
history of Kansas than it does to that
of Nebraska, and, very properly, the
principal observance of the event will
be in Kansaa

From the Pall Mall Gazette.
Bresci has been sentenced to imprison
ment for life. A fantastic description
of what he is likely to suffer having been
circulated in the English press, in which
it was represented that although Italy
was the first great power to abolish cap
ital punishment, she resorts to methods
of the Middle Ages in her treatment of
life prisoners, I took the trouble to make
a personal investigation, and gathered
the following facts, the correctness of
which I can guarantee:
Italy has two prisons in which her life
prisoners are confined, that of Santo Ste
fano, not far from Rome, and Porto
longone, in the Island of Elba. For the
first seven years the prisoner is confined
in a separate cell and given work that
does not require the use of iron. In
the years that follow he is admitted to
work with other prisoners, but not al
lowed to speak. In the first seven years
the rule is that he may not see any one
while in health, although as a matter
of custom his relatives are allowed to
visit him for half an hour once a year.
After the expiry of seven years they are
permitted to see him once in every six
months. His food consists of 34 pounds
of macaroni and 1 pound 6 ounces of
bread on weekdays, and soup and a piece
of meat on Sundays; wine is given only
three or four times a year, on special
days. In the first period the condemned
man may spend a half-penny a day in
whatever he wishes, and in the years
following 214d. The cell is 7 feet by
13 feet, and 10 feet in height. The air
comes from a window so constructed
that nothing but the sky is visible; it has
a heavy, iron-bound door inside and iron
gates behind it; it contains a bed with
wire springs and a mattress of a vege
table material, all of which is attached
by a chain to the wall during the day,
that the prisoner may not lie down; also
there are toilet necessities, and he is
allowed to have a brush and comb.
Each day he is taken out alone for a
walk in specially isolated courts; the
minimum time for exercise is one hour,
although this is extended if the health of
the prisoner requires it. The ordinary
punishments are: Isolation with bread
and water, the straightjacket and the
dark cell with irons.

Gen. Otis Reports on the Government

the money required to defray the ordi

FIGURES ON CINCINNATI.
They Indicate the Republicans Are
Not Sure of Ohio.
Cincinnati, O., Oct. 23. Tf an averaee
is struck between the claims made at
Ohio Democratic and Republican head
quarters, the state will give McKinley
about 50,000 to 60,000 plurality Nov. 6.
P. W. Durr, state Republican commit
teeman, claims the state by 10:00,
while all Democrats connected with the
state committee headquarters assert
that the result was so close so close
that they figure they have a chance to
win. Those who have watched events,
but who are not violent partisans, con
cede the state to McKinley by about 40,
OflO. A peculiar thing about the respec
tive claims is the figures given on this
(Hamilton) county, in which Cincinnati
is situated. In 1896 with a state ma
jority of 49,000, there was a majority in
Hamilton county of 19.000. This year,
while claiming the state by 100,000, the
Republicans only claim 7,000 to 7.500 for
Hamilton county. At the ratio of 1896
this, it is clearly seen, will result In a

people say that I, if elected, will not en

They know that If I am ejected I will

This declaration was made by Mr.
Bryan in his speech In this city today.
He came in on a special train from
Washington, which brought a number
of people from the capital city and he
found a very large crowd awaiting him
Rain fell constantly during his meet

Baughman, whose home is at this place
and Col. Baughman as well as Mr. Bryan
was most cordially greeted. Mr. Bryan
was well along in his speech when he
made the declaration above quoted.
"And that is the reason why the great
law breakers are against us In this cam
paign," he continued. "The Democratic
party is not a sectional party.
"When you build a government upon
the Declaration of Independence and ad
minister it according to the ideas of Jef
ferson, it is as broad and as long as the
nation. If we were seeking some class
legislation, which would give to the few
an advantage over the many we would
be a sectional party, because we would
only appeal to those specially benefited
by the legislation promised, but we are
not trying to get your hands Into some
body else's pockets.
"We are trying to keep other people's
hands out of your pockets. And when
a party seeks nothing but justice and
promises nothing but equal rights, you
can appeal to all people everwhere, who
are seeking to make government a bless

to the few. Partiality in government, fa
voritism in government these have been
the curses of government in the past

NATIONAL BALL LEAGUE
Actively Planning to Forestall Play
New York, Oct. 23. Two plans of ac
tion, it is understood, are being consid
ered by the National League magnates
to forestall the organization which was
formed in Baltimore lately under the ti
tle of the National Association. One of
these plans Is to re-establish the 12 club
circuit, the other ia to join with the
American League in a scheme so that
the organization can extend Its circuit
to the east.
Should the first proposition be taken
up Washington and Baltimore will be
embraced in the circuit in the east and
eDtroit and Cleveland in the west. It Is
rumored that if the second proposition
is deemed feasible that is a coalition
with the American League, the league
will be composed of teams in Boston,
Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washing
ton In the east, and Cleveland, Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Louis in the west. A
further feature of this scheme would b
that the American League scheme
would be so arranged as to have games

One of them I could never forget, no

gave up everything to spread Christian

of course to the camp at the lake.
Evening came and still she was walk

came to her ear; no sound of boats on
the beach; no glimpse of lake or open
A storm followed, and stumbling at
last in the darkness against the ruins of
an old logging camp, she crawled into
US wretched shelter and curled herself
up on some boards In a corner. Here
her utter exhaustion overcame her terror
and Bhe fell into an uneasy sleep, to
awake as the first dim lights of dawn
stole into her cabin.
She was cold, cramped and miserable,
but the coming daylight brought hope,
and she took up her rifle and was rising
to her feet when suddenly two black
bear cubs appeared In the open doorway,
and behind them lumbered along the un
wieldy form of their mother. The fright

truders and cartridge after cartridge
was poured forth in the direction of the
luckless bears. When she stole cau
tiously out to where the three dead
bears ought to lie she found only tracks
leading into the deeper forest.
Finally she found a loghouse whose
rustic owner told her she was "mighty
nigh 10 mile from Pike Lake." The
countess was glad to share the frugal
meal and was then taken back to her
friends, who had been searching all night
