Governor Stone presided at the graduat ing exercises. He introduced Mr. Cleve land, who said in the course of his speech; "We hear a great deal Just now in condemnation and defense of trusts and combinations. Quite lately a short ar ticle in. opposition to them' was sent me which I was informed was the result of much thought on the part of an able thinker. As I glanced on it my eye fell on a description of a community of peo ple whose wants were supplied by tradesmen and craftsmen who were their neighbors. They dealt together as friends interested in each other's wel fare and willing to yield something to each other's circumstances. "This description was followed by an arraignment of trusts and combinations as destroyers of this happy situation by first monopolizing certain branches of the business done in the communities, and then displacing with their stranger agents and representatives the dealers and craftsmen who were neighbors and friends." ZOLA'S COMING NOYEL. Labor to Be the Subject and Industry to Be Advocated. Paris, Dec. 24. Ttie plan and scope of Emile Zola's next novel, "Travail," ac cording to the author's own words, is summed up as follows: " 'Travail,' or labor, is the second of a series of works which has haunted me all my life. 1 must write them. They lire my blod and fill my brain. The first was 'Fecondite,' the second is the one now ready, which 1 have called 'TravaiP ; the third I shall call 'Verite'; the fourth and last "Justice.' Then I shall have finished my four gspels. "As in my first book I made a plea for large families, so in this I advocate in dustry. The nation with large and in dustrious families will and must be all conquering. I try to show the ills of labor today in our abominably organized so ciety. The modern social organism has dishonored labor, made it a work of sor row and misery. Now, in order to heal these ills, we must realize them, tell the whole truth and then apply the remedy. Sordid selfishness must be made to dis appear. Man must show large-hearted humanity. He must realize that he lives for his brother man aa well as for him self. "in my book is a vision of new and re generated society, when men and nations will unite in labor. When glorified labor will become the law and the life of the world it will be at once the creator and the regulator. "I look forward to that millennium where strife between labor and capital. be tween master and servant, will have ceased." FINDS LOST DAUGHTER.

The Kansas Semi-Centennlal exposition of 1904 should have the support of con gress, as other similar expositions have had. But to get this support it will be necessary to show that it has the in dorsement and backing of the state. This, there is every reason to believe, will be cheerfully given by the legislature this winter. Nothing has ever met with a more general, hearty co-operation on the part of the people of the whole state than the proposed semi-centennial celebration, and it is expected that the strong friends of the idea in every county will see that the members of the legislature come up to Topeka committed to the proper sup port of the exposition. It is certain that Kansas will get a dollar return for every cent expended on a successful exposition. While congress is not friendly to state expositions, thene is more than ordinary ground for the application Kansas will make for its support. For forty years we have paid our proportion of the costs of river and harbor, pubiic building and other constant heavy outlays without gaining a fraction of our proportion of the benefits. No federal appropriations to speak of have come into Kansas. Other states have had regular donations for rivers not traceable on the map, and har bors that existed only in the imagination of congressmen. Kansas has had no oc casion to call upon congress for local ap propriations, and its application for 1904, earnestly supported by a united delega tion, ought to have a favorable consider ation on this account. It has also in Its favor the precedents of Philadelphia, Chi cago, Buffalo. St. Louis and other cities. Onaga Republican. Young Girl Hangs Herself. Hastings, la., Dec. 24.

Sixto Lo pez, who is in this city upon an "edu cational mission" regarding the Philip pines, abs sent the following "Christmas letter" addressed to the president and people of the United States: "When the heart is broken God en ters and truth is realized. When peace reigns in the heart truth is also per ceived. It is at this season of peace and good will, when the hearts of men, freed from the sterner things of daily life, are softened and drawn together when all mankind is under the influ ence of the Prince of Peace, that I wish to make an appeal on behalf of our sorely stricken people. "At this season of peace I plead for peace. I plead on behalf of the wife and mother, down whose cheeks are coursing the silent tears; on behalf of the maiden who has met with, her first great sorrow; on behalf of the sad little faces, too young to realize what has happened, but who know that the one who occupied that vacant chair will never more return; on behalf of the pa triots who, for good or ill, have laid down their lives for their country's cause; on behalf of the brave soldiers marching under both flags, and in the name and for the sake of him, the friend of the oppressed, who suffered unjust condemnation as a rebel against the Lord of Hosts, I plead for peace." PECK IS HOME FROM PARIS Says French Exposition Stands Unri valed in Number of Exhibits. New York, Dec. 24. Ferdinand W. Peck, commissioner general to the Paris exposition, Mrs. Peck and Assistant Commissioner General Woodward were passengers on the St. Louis. Of the exposition Mr. Peck said: "In comparing it with that of 1893 my natural prejudice would be, of course, on the side of the Chicago exposition, which in its architecture and grouping as the 'white city,' has not been and will not be equaled but as an exposition of exhibits it must be admitted to be in ferior to the great event Just closed. The display at Paris was unprecedented. It was freely admitted that the dis play of the United States was the most prominent of the foreign nations. It received a much larger number of awards than Germany, Russia, Great Britain, Austria or any other nation foreign to France." Mr Peck said considerable work re mains to be done by the commission in connection with the closing up of the vast details and the settlements to be made ton both sides of the water. Major Brackett, he said, will remain for some time in Paris. The final report for con gress is yet to be prepared and this, he said, will be very extensive and will be of considirable practical value.
