P-usinesw Of flee 5s: I "Phone 107 Reporters' Room Beil 'Phone 617 Afruinaldo has undertaken to prove that a live Filipino can be a. good Fili pino. If the constitution should undertake to follow Funston, it would be kept on the move. The question of what shall he done with Afruinalri.- has been partially iolvod by that gentleman, himself. Montgomery Advertiser: It really he pins to look as If women are getting to be the only prominent men In Kansas of late. The Democratic victories reported from Ohio probably are due to the fact that so many Republicans are holding fiices outside of the state. Just as the sultan had prepared him F"!f for a Ions period cf rest while the powers were busy in China, his home folks have started a disturbance. Now that Tom Johnson has teen f leeted mayor of Cleveland the citizens t.f that city have a right to expect that they will be allowed free rides on the Etreet cars. What the public would like to know is whether the price cf Aguinaldo's fealty has advanced or not since he i--vvore allegiance to Spain for a consider ation. Snmo persons are trying to make themselves and others believe that i Aguinaldo planned his own capture. If this were true, he is entitled to com mendation for his selection of a captor. St. Louis Post-Dispatch: A new "Wis consin law punishes all persons in that Ftate who use the American tiag for ad vertising purposes. This ought to put a good many flamboyant politicians be hind the bars. THE STEEL COLOSSUS. IL From the New York World. This is the true age of iron. Iron and its products form the foundation and a Very lar?e part of the superstructure of material civilization. What is the relation of this billion dol lar steel colossus to the age of iron? The latest figures for the w-orld's prod uct of pig- iron are 40,500,000 tons a year. Of this France produces two and a half millions, Germany eight millions. Great Uritain nine and a half millions, the United States just under fourteen mil lions. That is, the United States pro duces nearly one-third of all the iron. To he world's production of steel, 2" - 000. 000 tons, the United States contrib utes 10,7CO,000 tons considerably more than one-third. The Steel Colossus mines about SO per cent cf all the iron mined in thi3 coun try and is incomparably the largest own er of iron mines and iron lands in ti,e world. It could produce twice as much iron as it does. It produces 95 per cent of all the steel made in this country and lias the capacity to produce more than 11.000,000 tons a year at the very lowest prices in the whole world. The United States iron industry domi nates the iron industry of the world. And the Steel Colossus is the United States Iron industry. But is it far more than the largest iron miner and maker of pig-iron and of stel billets In the world larger than ail t ie French and Germans together, larger than all the French and British together, with a greater capacity than ail the Ger mans and British together. It Is also the largest maker of almost all the raanu fac'urers of steel except machinery. It na'es every one of the coarser kinds of steel products, from rails and structural iron to nails. It even manufactures Ixon bedteads- It directly dominates the most exten sive lines of steel production. It indi rectly dominates all the others through Its control of pig-iron and steel billets It makes 75 per cent of the steel billets, 73 per cent of the heavy rails, 90 per cent of the street railway rails, S5 per cent cf the structural steel, SO per cent of the steel plates, 85 per cent of the wire, aJl the sheet steel, all the tubes. But this is only part of the Btory. The Steel Colossus is also the greatest coal miner in the world. It mines annually more than r0 million tons, chiefly for ls own use in producing the heat necessary to its multiform activities. It is the larg est manufacturer of tin-plate in tb2 world, owning about 265 mills in the United States and making practically all our tin-plate. It Is the largest man ufacturer of coke, with about a hundred cukf worka and upward of 30,000 coke ovens. It is the largest manufacturer of gas in the world, one of the largest quar ries of stone. It owns 1.00C miles of railway. It owns great rteeta of lake steamers, river steam era, sailing vessels and barges. In addi tion to its vast coal and iron lands, it is one of the great owners of city and town real estate. It Is the largest owner of houses, whether for manufacturing or dwelling purposes. As tens of thousands of its employes live in its houses or on its ships and boats, and get their sup plies from its Btores, it racks very high as a dealer in groceries, furniture, clot i- 1. ng. etc., etc Such are a few indications of the mul titude and magnitude of its products and THE PARADE OYEK. The dress parade is over. The plain march of business sincerity and eommonsense will now proceed. Hypocrisy and effervescence on the one hand have brought defeat to the head of the Republican ticket. Sincerity and substantial merit have been, given vic tory on the other. Tha waving plumes of Colonel Hughes, who rode at the head of the Republican column as its gay cavalier, are drooped and soiled. His handsome cavalry boots and dashing uniform were marred and disfigured In Tuesday's battle. Citizen Parker in the plain uniform of the successful trooper is the victor in the election contest. He wore no feathers in his hat and his shoes were not of patent leather. The city of Topeka is naturally Re publican by 2,500 votes. We now see the remarkable outcome wherein the head of the Republican ticket is defeated and the remainder of the candidates elected by handsome numbers. While the Re publicans lost the mayoralty by eleven votes, they secured the city attorney by the overwhelming majority of 2.S6S. For a strong Republican city, Topeka is wonderfully independent and results at the polls show that a nomination at the primary, no matter how overwhelm ing it may be, will not insure an objec tionable nominee the office for which the Republicans have entered him in the race for the highest municipal honor. Colonel Hughes was insincere. He was made the candidate of the law and order league, so denominated. This league knew that tha protestations and promises of their candidate were not in accord with his action and reputa tion. He was not true to his convictions. The law and order people were aware of this, and they chafed under his in sistence. But his nomination was foisted upon them and they contented them selves with working for a principle, not in harmony with the person, on the plea that they would maka him do their bidding. ' The majority of the people of Topeka have now repudiated hypocrisy. Colonel Hughes not long tinea admitted, that he was a resubrnissloniat, but he com pelled the prohibitionists to shoulder him. ' Insincerity has been rebuked. ' I e e The business elements of the city of Topeka were afraid of the colonel. They did not believe him to be of the proper timber for mayor. There was too much show and tinsel about him. He was not regarded a safe man for the place. Many disbelieved in his promises tending to the full municipal control of the waterworks. Mr. Parker's sincerity on the waterworks proposition was un doubted. Hughes' real position was re garded as questionable on this issue as well as upon others. Mr. Parker was elected by the Re publicans. A great many of that party who thought the race for Parker al most a hopeless one, yet determined to vote against the straight Republican candidate, in an effort to reduce the ma jority and thereby rebuke partisanship and insincerity in local affairs. The utmost effort was made by the Republican politicians to whip the voters into party lines. This in Topeka muni cipal contests has always been a diffi cult undertaking. Tariff and free trade, expansion and anti-expansion and na tional policies and measures did not set tle this election in Topeka. Neither was it a victory for the "wets." The overwhelming vote received by Mr. Spencer who represents the strongest sort of temperance sentiment in this community plainly shows this. Many Topeka people, men and women, strongly opposed to the Joints and the illegal sale of liquor, voted yesterday for Mr. Parker because they believed him the better temperance man of the two. Mr. Warner has received a large si'sed vindication. Had he been the nominee of the Republicans it is generally believ ed he would have received the big natur al Republican majority. While Col. Hughes received a majority of the ballots cast by women, the returns show that Mr. Parker received about two-fifths of that vote. The latter car ried the woman vote in four precincts. "One of the most gratifying incidents of the election to me," said the newlv elected mayor today, "is that in my own old precinct where I lived so many, many years until recently, the Fifth pre cinct of the Second ward, I carried the woman vote. The Second precinct of :ne Fourth ward also gave me its woman vote, as did several other precincts." The Republicans have again learned a bitter lesson. That in Topeka their can didate must have ability, sincerity and the confidence of the people in addition to being the nominee. It Is safe to assume, in view of iii3 integrity, his business capacity and suc cess; a large property owner, a temper ance man of the strictest kind, that Mr. Parker will tnake a generally satisfac tory mayor. That the joints in Topeka will be under better control than they have been under Mr. Drew or would have been under Col. Hughes, Is the sin cere belief of many who gave their votes to Albert Parker. A contest, of course, is brewing. This comes, however, with poor grace from CoL Hughes who Tuesday claimed his election by 2,000 and who possessed the general machinery at the polls. The fact that the commissioner of elections, a Republican and is the chairman of tha city central committee compiles the fig ures showing Hughes" defeat, ought to be sufficient to permit the gallant colonel to step gracefully down and off from his high black charger and resume his posi tion in the ranks to march and work for greater Topeka, now assured by the over whelming vote for the new Santa Fe shops. Now, Colonel, don't throw any chunks of coal at Citizen Parker. He has over come you fairly and squarely with the little white ballots administered by the majority of the voters. Take your med icine like a little man. You will feel better. , If Mr. J. Plerpont Morgan and Mr. James J. Hill can succeed in their scheme of inducing the government to abandon the construction of an isth mian canal and allow them to complete the Panama undertaking, then the peo ple can whistle for . an . interoeeanic waterway. The delay in this Important work up to this time has been caused by just such men as Morgan and Hill and th interests which they represent. Bishop Alexander Waters claims that 45 per cent, of the illiteiacy of the negro race in the United States has been elim inated since the date of emancipation. The negroes have raised for educational purposes during that period the sum of $13,065,000. They have accumulated in church property $40,000,000; in school property, $15,000,000. They have 150,000 farms, valued at $325,000,000, with per sonal property worth $163,000,000. There are now 230,000 negro children in the public schools, 45,000 in higher institu tions, 30,000 learning trades and 35,000 who are engaged in teaching. The assertion of the late Senator In galls that the Golden Rule has no place in politics has been disproved by Samuel M. Jones, of Toledo, O., who has been re-elected mayor of that city on this well defined issue. The Railway Age gives a list of pro jects under contract, calling for 5,900 miles of new construction. There are still other proposed and prospective en terprises which would Increase the total to something over 8,000 miles. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. A boy has so much fun that he has no time for anything else. How old must a woman be before she is able to act as her own chaperon? A boy is always good just before the pie is given out, and in this respect he never ceases to be a boy. When the baby stops crying at night, it is a cue to the cat outside to begin yowling to coma in. Selfishness is responsible for much good conduct. People can't afford to be bad, as a business proposition. Monday is always a temper day: due in the old to over-eating the day before, and in the young to mistakes in court ship It is a rare son who does not occasion ally abuse his father. Think it over, how often have you ripped the old man up the back when he was in the right? Women have not much to offer in th w-ay of bribes, but an Atchison woman has offered to shampoo another woman's hair if the woman will vote for faer can didate for mayor. When a man comes around, and offers to pay 30 per cent on money invested with him, how superior he seems tooth er men who are able to earn only 6 per ten' on their capital! But when his scheme is actually in operation, an gradually eats up the original capital, instead of paying 30 per cent dividends, the safe men who really pay S per cent are appreciated. ' , i POINTED PARAGRAPHS. From the Chicago News. After all, the best way to make money 13 to earn it. If a man rests he rusts and if trusts he busts. he He who expands in prosperity will contract in adversity. If punctuality is the soul of business it must be immaterial. The man may occasionally find home comforts at the club, but he seldom fine's comforts at home. There is said to be a whisky trust In this country, but the poor man who is unable to raise the price of a diiiiK doesn't take any stock in it. JAYHAWKEK JOTS. Fortis would like a bank. Saoetha proved courageous enough to vote bonds for an electric light system. Strange to say an anti-prohition major was elected at the little town of Hope. Out at New Hope they hold their dances in a sod house by the light of a tallow dip. An unknown donor left a sack of flour at each of the Lebanon ministers' back doors the other night. Theold sthI school houseof Pen Dennis, Dane county, will be replaced by a frame building this spring. There's but one issue in Smith county, and that's whether Smith Center shall have a high school. Two Bellevue girls have achieved much notoriety by attending a masked ball dressed in men's clothes. The Emporia band has organized for street concerts, had their pictures taken, and are now ready for practice. A turkey shipped out of Winfield to Armour's weighed 43Va pounds, and was mistaken by several for an ostrich. A Cowley county man has a pair of horns from a fierce Andalusia bull killed In a Juares, Mexico, pit fight. They are sharp as needles and glisten like a mirror. The Great Bend Register notes as a remarkable fact that ail the lady teach ers in the city schools there are just 21 years of age, as shown by the registra tion books. The brilliant plan of a Lawrence man to have his wife smash a joint or two, then go on the lecture platform and sup port him, was nipped in the bud by the woman balking. AN0T1IEK GOEBEL CASE. That of Garnet . Ripley la Called at Frankfort, Ky. Frankfort Ky., April 3. The case of Garnet D.Ripley, the Henry county cap tain of the Taylor militia company, under indictment for comDlieitv in the Goebel murder conspiracy, was called today. The us tor witnesses called by the common wealth Indicates that very much the same evidence as that brought out in the trial of ex-Secretary of State Caleb Powers last summer is to be introduced In this trial.

Lindsay objected and kald the door. . Mr. Williams was finally persuaded to stay until the returns were verified. ALBAUGH WiflS. Cross Bank Suit Decided Favor of Keceirer. in The suit of the Fourth National bank of New York, the First National bank of New York and Ford Harvey against the First National bank of Emporia, Kan., has been decided bv the United States circuit court of appeals at St. Louis In favor of the receiver of the bank, Mor ton Albaugh.

The plaintiffs in the ca.se claimed the money m payment of notes to the amount of $W.O0O held by them c Martin dale and Cross. Election at Ottawa. Ottawa, Kas., April 3. The city elec tion in Ottawa was hotly contested, and the tickets were scratched worse than were ; ever known before. Not one fourth were straight party. This delayed the counting considerably. It was near midnight when they got through. The Republicans were successful In the main. Mayor F. O. Hetrick, Republican, was re-elected by 246 ' plurality. The election of school treasurer vas aa in teresting as any place, because the rest were allied in support of A. Dobson, president of the Bank of Ottawa, against Jack Harris' People's National bank candidate, F. M. Shiras, and with this exception and some ward oifleera the ticket went Republican. Gen.

Jin Honest Tired Feeling There i3 aa honest tired feel ing," caused by necessary toil and cured by natural rest. But very different is " that tired feeling," from which bo many com plain and which may even be classed as a disease. That tired feeling takes you to bed tired and wakes you up tired.
