There is a suspicion that the Chicago Commercial club left home in order to escape the din and tumult of the mu r.klpal campaign. Recent reports from the Philippines indicate that General Funston did not believe those stories about the numerous deaths of Aeuina'do. Perhaps the young man who did the shouting in th Fabst hotel recently was trying to engraft the customs of his own sunny south upon New York city.

The farmers send to town for what they want instead of coming in themselves. In undertaking a swing around the country, perhaps the president is de sirous of viewing at close range some of the prosperity for which he believes his administration of affairs is in large measure responsible. t The president is being criticised for selecting an attorney of the steel trust to fill the vacancy caused by the resig nation of Mr. Griggs. But where is he to find a lawyer of prominence who has not been retained by some trust or big corporation? Senator Hanna is reported to be in favor of the election of United States senators by popular vote. The New Tork World construes this as an an nouncement that he expects to return to private life at the end of Ms present trm. The Maryland census enumerator who !s on the carpet for false enumeration in that state defends his action on the rround that the people are so ignorant that they would not be counted. He said that when they saw him coming they would literally take to the woods, and he r.ad to gues3 how many were living there. As the more names he returned the more pay he received, it was but statural that he guessed hieh. The powers appear about to be called upon to settle another "eastern ques tion" before th-y are through with the one upon which they are at present en raged.

It follows that woman suf frage must be general. GLOBE SIGHTS. fFrom the Atchison Globe. Pon't wait until your friends are dead to give them flowers. The men have learned bo much about women that they no longer treasure a lock of a w oman's hair. It will be harder than ever this year, jndsring from the new spring hats, to tell if a woman is coming or going. You know how you hate some people, without any particular reason. Well, some people hate you in the same way. It is a good indication that a girl is dead tired of teaching school when she smiles pleasantly upon a man whose grammar Is notoriously bad. Frtendahjp has always been inure or less a disappointment to tis from the day when we had for our dearest friend a boy whose father kept a candy store. A terrible blunder was made by an Atchison hostess at a dinner recently; she served green peas on blue dishes, and the guests had their artistic tem peraments shocked. When anything sensational happens, there is a great argument every time a number of men and women get to gether as to who is to blame, the man or the woman. Why not divide it evenly? The women will go crazy over a cow advertised for sale in this issue by Chris Klostermeier. He guarantees that the cow will give three and a half gallons of milk daily. Last week the cow sup plied two families with miik, and there was enough milk left to make nine and a half pounds of butter. Her name is Daisy. The real correct thing in shirtwaists costs six dollars a waist, but this does not worry the Atchison girls. A num ber of girls who can afford to be five minutes earlier in style than any one else, send for them, and let their girl friends copy them when they make their summer supply of six waists out of two dollars' worth of goods. Atchi son girls are so clever that they can trim a hat that looks as if it could talk French. POINTED PAKAGEAPHS. From the Chicago Ne-s A lean conscience makes a fat office. He who has nothing to do fcaa no busi ness to exist. Getting rich is one way to remove stains from the character. When It rains hardest the laundress catches the most soft water. When a woman's feelings are worked up she should order a fresh supply. A charge of bayonets is sometimes made for the purpose of gaining credit. A woman pats a strange baby In about the same manner a man pats a strange dog It's a mean man who will deliberately walk between a woman and a milliner's window. It doesn't matter much how a man lies when asleep Just so he sticks to the truth when awake. A Georgia jury recently brought in ?he following verdict: "We. the jury, find the prisoner almost guilty."

He had waited long years to marry her, waited until her rich old uncle's death had paved the way. "And do you still love me?" she asked anxiously. "My darling," he reassured her, "you are worth your weight in gold." Of course this was spoken, and consequently the fine distinction was not apparent to her. JAYHAWKER jots.

JAPAN HAS BEST NAVY. Little Kingdom Could Defeat Russia in a Sea Contest. New York. March 28. If the Japanese intend to rely largely upon their avail able sea power in a contest with Russia, Japan is now not only equal but superior in force to Russia in Asiatic waters, says the Washington correspondent of the Times. The Russian fleet now stationed in Asia and available for service against Japan numbers 31 vessels, exclusive of torpedo boats, with an aggregate ton nage of 130,940. The Japanese fleet, ex clusive of torpedo boats, consists of 52 vessels, of 207,903 tons. Not only does Japan enjoy a superiority of tonnage to the extent of nearly 77.0OO tons, but she has some ships of very great power and the promise of great efficiency, and she would enter a struggle with a prestige that would at least worry the people at St. Petersburg. , Russia's fleet available at present for service against Japan includes some large ships, but her battleships are smaller and older than those of Japan. Japan's list includes about all her navy, the fleet being stationed at home for the most part, the cruises of vesesls being chiefly for practice and in waters with which it is desired to acquire great familiarity. Besides being much heavier than the Russian battleships, those of Japan are of later construction, and are much more heavily batterled. A comparison of the weight of projectiles to be thrown by the respective fleets would, it is said, show great superiority in the fleet of Japan. As to the outcome of a naval conflict between Russia and Japan naval officers hesitate to predict. Russia has had no recent naval experience worth mention ing. Japan's war with China proved her to be infinitely superior to China, but only a conflict with Russia would prove anything of the relative ability of the two nations. While Japan's prestige is great and would nerve the navy to des perate conflict with Russia, naval ofii cers say that Japan can not always ex pect to win, and that judgment must be deferred .until it is seen how she fights after she has been subjected to a few drubbings. AN AKMYOF 50,000. War Department Forced to Change Plans For the Philippines. Washington, March 27. The present plans of the war department contem plate the maintenance of an army of 50, 000 men in the Philippines until order has been completely established, under the proposed new civil government and the garrisons can be safely reduced to a peace footing. There are now about 65, 000 troops fh the Philippines and China, and the original plan was to maintain an army of 60,000 men in the Philippines until a stable government has been es tablished, replacing the volunteers, num bering 25,000 with regulars to an extent sufficient to keep all existing garrisons throughout the archipelago, but it has been found to be impracticable to do so under ""existing conditions within the short time intervening before the first of July next, when the entire volunteer army must be disbanded. The failure of the plan is due to lack of available officers in this country to organize the new regiments authorized by congress and not so much to the difficulty of re cruiting the regiments. rVSXOLLUI EXPLAINS. Makes Statement About Liquor iu Hughes Building. Dr. A. E. McCollum, of 81S Kansas avenue, who is authority for the state ment that whisky was purchased in the J. W. F. Hughes building within two weeks, is considerably exercised because an effort is being made to discredit his statements. He said today: "I was innocently drawn Into this matter, and had no desire to take part in any controversy, but I feel that in Justice to myself an explanation should be made. Mrs. Lindsay told me that if I procured a bottle of liquor in the Hughes building she would believe there was a joint there, and I secured a bottle and turned it over to her. The next day I met Dr. S. E. Stewart on the street, and he told me that he had no doubt of the truth of the story, because Mr. Vance had told him that whisky was bought there a few days before. Vance went to Wood and Wood told him that if he could prove liquor was sold there he would give him $50. "Then Mrs. Lindsay and Dr. Stewart waited on me and offered me $50 to make an affidavit. I told them I would sub mit the offer to the man who bought the wh'if.ky and I did so but he at first re fused. Later he consented to make he affidavit for $50 and I so informed Mrs. Lindsay but she refused. "The whisky was bought in the Hughes buiiding between 1 and 2 o'clock oil March IS. "I am strictly a temperance man and I intend to vote for the man I know is a temperance and against resubmission." A statement refuting Dr. McColluiVs statement was published this morning after an investigation, by F. M. Grover. a blind man. Nelson to Lecture Tonight State Superintendent of Public In struction Nelson will deliver a lecture in the Swedish Lutheran church in Kan sas City, Kas., this evening. His sub ject will be "Every-day Lessons." Mr. Nelson has to return to Topeka tomor row to take his place in the executive council and elect the railroad board. For his lecture in Parsons on Friday night, which this duty compelled Mr. Nelson to abandon, he has secured a capable substitute in John Dawson, of the state treasurer's office. Mr. Daw son will lecture at Parsons to the edu cational and literary societies on "Aaron Burr." i ANEMIA is little red in the blood. The , red in the blood is the oxygen-carrier. Better to breath with half of one lung than not have enough red in the blood. The blood is full of digested food; but it can't build muscle and nerve and bone without oxygen. Scott's emulsion of cod-liver oil puts red in the blood : the oxygen-carrier. It is like build ing a railroad into a famine stricken country. We'll send yu i Kttl. to try, if you like. SCOTT & EOWNJE, c ttaxl tteet, New Vera, REESE HABEAS CORPUS. History of the Case and the OpiHion of the Court. St. Louis, March 2S. In' the courts of appeals today a decision was handed down sustaining the position of the United States circuit court in the case of John P. Reese, a member of the exec utive committee of the United Minn Workers of America who was imprison ed for alleged contempt of an injunctive order and subsequently released on a writ of habeas corpus. The decision which was written by Judge Allen deals elaborately with the right3 of courts to punish for the violaUon of restraining orders. Reese and others went to Kansas in 1S99 during the progress of a coal strike and delivered speeches in behalf of the strikers. In July, 1899, the Western Coa and Mining company, one of the largest concerns affected bv the strike, secured an injunction against all members of the mine workers union and "all others com bining, confederating, or conspiring with them, who are residents of the state. After delivering a speech Reese was arrested on the ground that he had vio lated the injuncUon and was sentenced to a term of six month3 In the Jail at Fort Scott, Kan. The case was appealed to Judge Thay er, who ordered the discharge of Reese, It was to pass on the merits of Judge Thayer s ruling that the .case was referr ed to a higher court. Judge Adams ho3 Is that the restraining order does not nee sarily have to apply specifically to any person to inflict punishment for its vio lation. He says that the mere fact that the order cf a court is defied by those who have knowledge of it is of itself sufficient justification for contempt pro ceedings. In, the case at issue different clreum stances are presented he held. The de fendant was punished for violating ail order made on behalf of private inter ests and not because he had defied the dignity of the court. It was not demon strated the court further says that Reese, in any manner had conspired or combined to injure the property of the complainants. After reviewing the points involved Judge Adams said: "From the. foregoing it is apparen that the offense of violating an express restraining order issued at the suit of a private litigant for his protection is one thing dependent upon the actual exist ence of such restraining order with ac tion charged in the suit to which he is a party by name or adequate represen tation; and that the offense of a person not a party to a suit in aiding or abet ting such party to disobey, or resist a restraining order against himself or in dependently and intentionally thwarting the administration of justice is another and essentially different thing. "The petitioner had the right accorded him by the constitution of the land and time honored precedents to stand upon the accusation as made and to defend himself aeainst the chares as made: namely, that he had violated the injunc tive order. "He exercised' the right, and after being round guilty anu imprisoned tor violating the injunctive order, proceeded to chal lenge the lawfulness of his restraint for the reason that he was not a party to the cause In wmcn tne injunction was issued and that the court was without jurisdic tion to call him to account lor it. ' BRYAN STANDS PAT. His Position Is Not Affected by Capture of Aguinaldo. Lincoln, Neb., March 28. W. J. Bryan gave an expression to the following to day in discussing the capture of Agui naldo: "The report of the capture of Agul naldo is apparently verified. While no one can predict with certainty the effect of his capture, it is possible, it may put an end to the war for the present, but the objection to imperialism is not re moved by the surrender of those who have been opposing it in the Philippines. Imperialism is wrong because it changes every theory of government. Wre can not administer an empire in the Orient and maintain a republic in America." LOCAL MENTION. "Wiley G. Cook is in Cherryvale. J. WTillis Gleed will make a temperance lecture at Chanute Saturday night. J. M. Rider, of Wilton, Iowa, is visit ing City Attorney Bird. Mrs. A. S. Koonce. of Paola, is in the city today. Mr. Koonce will move his family- to Topeka soon. The Republican committee will have their rally in the Auditorium Friday night. The day seems to have been mixed in the reports. The police court did not do much busi ness this morning. Two plain drunks stood up before the police judge, and were each given a fine of $3. J. L. Ankiny, who was held up and robbed on East Fifth street, wa re turning home at 9 o'clock, instead of 1 o'clock, as stated in last night's paper. One of the largest signs in Topeka was placed on the scuth wall of the Southwestern Fuel company's new office building at Eighth and Kansas avenue today. The Bowman League of American Mothers will meet at the Central Con gregational church Friday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock. The subject is "Kinder garten Home." The city council will meet Monday night at 7 o'clock. This is an hour earlier than the usual time, but the councilmen enjoy a band concert as well as ordinary citizens. The sale of seats for "Nathan Hale." at the Crawford Monday night, will open at the box office tomorrow morn ing. This will be one of the best at tractions seen here this season. The prices are from $1 down. J. D. M. Hamilton, claim attorney of the Santa Fe, and president of the Na tional Association of Railway Claims Attorneys and Claim Agents, represent ing all the leading railroads of the Unit ed States and Canada, has called the next annual meeting for May 22, at Cleveland, Ohio. A pleasant occasion was enjoyed last night at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. John- Baumgarrer, tending the Rev. Chaney. former pastor of the Parkdale ; M. E. church, a farewell reception. A sumptuous repast was served at 9 o'clock. Following were the persons present: Mrs. Chaney, Miss Chaney. Mr. Ohaney, jr., Mr. and Mrs. Harry Schaefer, Mr. and Mrs. Baun, Mr. and Mrs. McDonald, Mrs. Forcythes. Mrs. Fink. Miss Chaney rendered several fine selections on the piano. A Dodge City young lady dressed up in boys clothes and left home claiming that it was a crime to be born a girl. The witty constable who arrested her said it was. only a miss-demeanor. HEW Y.y. C.A. BUILDING Movement on Foot to Erect One - by Railroad Branch. The railroad Y.' M. C. A. of Topeka has started a movement for the erection of a new building at this place. The large number of railroad men who patronize the association-and the present-cramp ed quarters have forced the subject upon the officers of. the organization. . Should the bond proposition carry at the coming election, which seems entirely probable the association will be in need of larger and better quarters. Secretary T. E. Prout has had the idea in mind for some time, and now the success of his plans depends upon wnat step the offi cials of the Santa Fe will take toward aiding' him in his project of raising the necessary money. Regarding this Seere tary Prout said: "The cost of building would involve an outlay of possibly from $18,000 to $20,- 000. There is no doubt but a large part of this amount could be raised by sub scriptions among the railroad men. While the Santa Fe Railroad company, which has contributed generously to our department, will undoubtedly do all that is necessary on their part, as they did at Argentine, Kan., Temple and cie bourne, Texas." Should another building be erected, it will be located more conveniently for the shop men though but little attention has been paid to these details as yet. The finest railroad Y. M. C. A. build ing is at Argentine, built about two years ago at a cost of $10,000, about half of which the Santa Fe company contrib uted. The proposition will probably be submitted to the officials in a few days. f.lAKES NO DIFFERENCE. Agoncillo Says War Will Go On Just the Same. Paris,, March 28. A representative of the Associated Press communicated to Agoncillo, the Filipino representative, the news of the capture of Aguinaldo. Agon cillo, who occupies a nicely furnished apartment in a house in a central Paris street, apparently surrounded by every comfort, laughed and stud: "I do not believe it I haVe received nothing by cable, and until I receive con firmatory advices, I shall continue to ignore the news. Asked if the announcement were true, what effect it would have on the insur rection. Agoncillo replied emphatically: "None, except the loss of a true patriot and a clever general. The feeling of the Filipino people and their determination to fight out the struggle for independence win remain unsnaKaoie. "I received a cablegram only yesterday which informed me that the Philippine leaders have not modified their persist ent attitude concerning the continuance of the war. Whatever disaffections may have taken place in favor of the Ameri cans, the Philippine people as a whole ar resolved to accept nothing short of in dependence." When Agoncillo .was asked what effect the, capture of Aguinaldo would have 01 the campaign he said a council of the leading Filipinos would simply meet and elect another military chief to prosecuts the war, adding that if Aguinaldo and his general staff were captured, many able generals remain. Agoncillo was asked who he though was likely to be chosen to succeed Aguin. aldo. and said he thought General Ale jandrino might be selected, as he was a clever military leader aaid enjoyed the confidence of the people. In reply to a question as to whethe the Filipinos had enough money to con tinue the war indefinitely, Agoncillo smiled and replied: "That is our affair." BONDS ARE FORFEITED. Sixty Go by Default in District Court. This morning about 60 bonds in crim inal cases were forfeited in the district court. The district court adjourned for the January term just before noon and be fore the expiration of the term all per sons out on bond were expected to be on hand to renew their securities. Through the negligence of the attorneys the bonds were not renewed and were nominally forfeited but by paying the costs of the penalty and bringing the principal into court the bonds can be renewed without being forfeited. BREAKS OUT ANEW. War Is Resumed Between Ar buckles and Sugar Trust. Toledo, O., March 28. The Arbuckle- Woolson coffee-sugar war has broken out anew. Papers filed in the circuit court here today by the Woolson Spice company show that an agreement be- tween the two companies was drawn up on February 27, whereby the Woolson company was to register the 61 shares of Woolson stock which the Arbuckles hold, and the Arbuckles were to be al lowed such inspection of the Woolson books as did not harass the Toledo con cern. The papers further set forth that the Arbuckles defaulted in the agreement, and the circuit court accordingly is asked to set aside its recent order com mitting the local manager of the wool son Spice company to jail for refusing to allow the Arbuckles to inspect the Woolson books. Tn the state supreme court today tne Arbuckles -are seeking an order to have the Woolson manager punisned in pur suance of the Toledo court's decree. A BLOW FROM THE STATE. Columbus, O., March 28. State Food Commissioner J. E. Blackburn has re ceived the decision of Judge A. Thomoson of the United States circuit court in the injunction case of the Ar buckles against the food commissioner. The decision is in favor of the food com missioner on every point. It is the opin ion of the court that a certain brand of .rvffee manufactured bv the plaintiff is not a compound of coffee, sugar and eggs, but is coffee cooled with a glaze made or sugar ana eggs aim is auui ici ated within the limits of the statute and that the manufacture and sale thereof. r the offer for sale of the same, is tne misdemeanor of the laws of Ohio.

Thousands Camped Along the Kiowa Border Reservation. El Reno, O. T-, March 28. Five thou sand persons are camped along the bor ders of Kiowa and Comanche reserva tion lands awaiting permission to enter these lands, which are to be thrown open to settlement tnis summer. Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of people have arranged to put in crops in Canadian, Blaine and Oklahoma counties this year, expecting to secure homes in the Wichita, Kiowa. Comanche and Apache reservations. These are prospect ive settlers. There are some possibly In every county of Oklahoma and some in southern Kansas, but farm lands are well occupied within reach of the new border. This condition also prevails in Texas. from Terrall and Wichita Falls to Vernon. This now of immigration is pouring In mostly in wagons. Each family has a small home for its owners on wheels, ready to move in the fall. The opening cannot occur later than Aueust 9. but. it is believed, that practically the time limit will be taken by tne department in maK ine allotments and perfecting arrange ments for the onenlnsr. This makes it im perative that the settlers raise a crop on rented land. The head of the family will make the dash lor tne claim, leaving others to care for the crop and Join him later. Of course there Is no estimating tne number of people who will be on hand seeking homes. All sorts of estimates are made, but the general belief is that there -tt-ill be n more congested condition than at any of the previous openings.
