Kansan ia Chief of N ew Division of Forestry. A Washington correspondent gives the fallowing account of Kansans in Wash ington: The recent calling in, from the field of A. R. Greene of Lawrence, a former lan J office inspector, at $2,000 a year and par diem expenses, to be chief of the new forestry division in ihe general land of fice in Washington, adds another well known Kansan to the state's little col ony of oriicehoi Jers hre. Greene active ly entered upon his duties March 1 and has the administrative machinery of the new forestry division already well organ ised and under way. It has to do main ly with the great forest reserves of the country. This is not Mr. Greene's advert in Washington in a public capacity. H- filed the place of private secretary to Richard Blue when the latter was con-gressman-at-large from Kansas in 1S5 i7. Greene's appointment is a reminder that, aside from the Kansas holders of the more conspicuous places, men like Associate Justice Brewer, Mr. Kyan, as sistant secretary of the Interior, and Mr. Eristow. fourth assistant postmaster general, there are a number of once quit? prominent Kansans who have held st.ut places in the federal departments so long as to now be almost forgotten back at home. Among them Ward Burlingame, who has been in the postoftice depart ment about 23 years, ar.d is now chief clerk of the dead letter office at J1.80O a year, was editor of the old Leavenworth, Conservative during the redhot anti-I-ane campaign of 1S52. Subsequently he was part proprietor and chief editor of the Topeka Loader, but lStio found hiin buck on the Conservative. In the early "70s he was editor-in-chief of the Ti peka Commonwealth, under the mar.ag--inent of Solomon Prouty. then state printer. Burlingame was private secre tary successively to Governor Carney, Governor Crawford and Governor Har vey. In 3S71 he came to Washington as the private secretary and confidential adviser of the newly elected senator, Al exander Caldwell. After Caldwell's res ignation in the spring of 1STS Burlin game had no further prominence in Kansas affairs and finally accepted a de partmental clerkship in Washington, where he has ever since remained. The once w id. ly known "Alex" Banks cf Mineoia, ljwrer.ee, Topeka and per haps other Kansas towns, ia chiefly re markable among Kansas polticians for the constancy with which, for nearly two decades, beginning as far back as IS.il. he tilled the office of chief clerk of the Kansas house of representatives or the secretaryship of the state senate. lie could not be defeated, although he failed nf Republican nomination for state? treasurer In 1ST2. Banks was a provost marshal during the rebellion. He ha been assistant examiner in the pension bureau for many years, the pay proper of which is Jl.ouO a year, besides which there U a per diem allowance for ex penses. When "'Ali-x' Banks was elect ed assistant chief clerk of the first Kan sas house, in 1S61, he was officially re corded as being 2a years of age. That vaa a good many years ago and tells the story that the "boys" are growing old. Colonei H. C. Rizer, formerly of Eur eka, Greenwood county, where he went from Maryland In 1870 to practice law. iias long been chief clerk of the geologi cal survey at $2.2",0 a year.

Burch, several times mayor and subsequently postmaster of O'athe, is now chief clerk of the bureau of animal industry In the agricultural department, with, a salary of $2,000 a year. He came to Washington to take a place in the census bureau more than ten years ago. E. P. Hanna, a son of tlw picturesque B. J. F". Hanna, editor of the Salina Herald, is now chief clerk of the Judge advocate general's bureau, war department, at $2,000 a year. Previously he had occupied various clerical posi tions. Two other children of the old Sa lina editor hold good places here. A. J. Henry of Leavenworth is chief of division in the weather bureau at t2. 000 a year; Bennet H. Allen, of Shawnee county is chief of postofrlce inspectors at S3.000. General Jams W. McMillan of Morris county is a principal examiner in the pension office at $2,000, and Dr. Law rence Wilson of Shawnee county ia med ical examiner in the same bureau at $1. S00. Kansas is fairly well represented in the pension bureau, as (t ought to ba in view of the large .-.umber of ex-soldiers who live in the rftate.

Admission 50 centa n nnr'l SET0N-TH03IPS0N HERE. Famous Writer of Wild Animal Stories to Lecture Tonight In the engagement of Ernest Seton Thompson, "the man who knows wild animals," for two lectures at the high school assembly hall today Topeka peo ple are afforded an opportunity not often accorded them. Mr. Seton-Thompson is known the world over for his stories of wild animals. In person Mr. Seton-Thompson looks much like a man who has lived out of doors and who has shaken himself free of restraints and conventionalitiea Yet ha ia perfectly at home on the platform mm X .V7 . ERNEST SETON-THOMPSON. and speaks with ease and a natural straightforwardness and simplicity. Tall, gaunt, large-framed, with a shock of jet black hair and a complexion as dark as a Spaniard, one understands after see ing him why his printed portraits look so dark. He is a born story teller and carries his audience along with him oblivious to time. Now It is a laughable story of how a cat held off a bear to protect her family of kittens, then it is the pathetic story of Lobo the Wolf, which brings others besides the little ones to tears. And in this connection may be given an account of an incident in a Brooklyn theater where Mr. Seton-Thompson waa lecturing, which serves to illustrate his ability to hold the attention of his audi tors. "The theater was in total darkness, save for the white patch of light thrown upon the picture screen by the stereopti con. There was a dead silence, broken only by the smothered gasps of small boys and girls as the lecturer told how Lobo, the king wolf of the Currumpaw pack, took bloody vengeance for the murder of the beautiful white wolf who was his mate. "Lobo crept up to our cabin at night,' said Mr. Thompson, 'and we were awakened by a stifled yelp. Then all was still. We knew what had happened. In the morning we found that Lobo had seized our pet dog and torn him into little pieces.' Suddenly a small voice piped shrill and high through the darkness: " 'What did he tore up the dog for?" "Like a wise man Mr. Thompson didn't stop to solve the problem, but kept right on with the story of the plot that led to Lobo's undoing, and which is famil iar to those who have been fortunate enough to read 'Wild Animals I Have Known." " His stereoptieon pictures, some of them from photographs, others from his own drawings, add much to the effective ness of his lectures and delight the younger ones as well as Interest the old er people. He shows bears, foxes, coy otes, rabbits, prairie dogs, deer and elk, and the queer track wild animals make in the snow. But the most unique feature is the lecturer's imitation of animal cries and calls to their little ones. They are quite indescribable and give one an erie sen sation of wildness and remoteness from civilization. The lecture this afternoon will begin at 4:15 instead of at 3 o'clock as was first announced. The evening lecture will be at S o'clock, both In the high school aud itorium. TO CATCH CRIMINALS. Association of Chiefs of Police to Gather in New York City. New York, April 10. A meeting of the Association of Chiefs of Police will be held in this city next month and It is probable that an effort will be made to arrange a system by which photographs and measurements of criminals will be exchanged by the police officials of larger cities. Captain Titus and Deputy Commissioner Deverey are bLh In favor of a plan of the kind. It has been dis cussed before and this time it is believed that it will be adopted. Captain Titus urges that the plan will establish a closer relationship between the detertlve bureaus of the different cities and will give the detectives a better opportunity to round up thieves from out of town who rlock to big jratherings here. There is also talk of arranging for in terchange of photographs and measure ments of criminals between the detective bureau of this city and Scotland Yard. This. Captain Titus thinks, would be a gren.t heip in catching thieves who op erate on oceon steamships. The first of the many delightful af fairs to be given in honor of Miss Ollie O'Brien waa the card party this after noon given by Misa Kate Gunther at her home on Western avenue. ' Progressive high five was the game of the afternoon and the prize was a pretty picture entitled "Love's Dream."

PORTO RICO AS IT IS. American Missionary Society Representative Reports. Boston, April 10. Rev. E. S. Tead of Somerville. Mass., who with Rev. A. F. Beard of New York, went to Porto R:"co aa representatives of the American Mis sionary society, make the following re port: In some of the towns where the great est povery exists Spaniards live who are worth all the way from $100,000 to II. 000,000. but they are nut touched by this condition of the poor nor are efforts made to alleviate distress. Beggary is common and in some of the Bturts little baskets of coppers or. the shelf hold the amount which the merchant intends to dispense that day. All sorts of bodily deformities and disease are displayed by these beggars, such as blindness, twist ed feet, dropsy, sores, bruised legs, para lysis, women carried in carts.or hobbling along: on their haunches, or men seated by the wayside holding up a maimed limb and begging for a pittance. The need of the island is a general hospital equipped with modern appli ances. A hospital could be built and equipped at comparatively small expense. Miss Dr. Atkins, connected with the Presbyterian mission of San Juan has twenty-five to forty call3 a day from patients who need hospital treatment, many of whose lives are lost because of the lack of it. The education of the people is receiving the careful consideration of the authori ties. Dr. Brumbaugh, the commissioner of education, is working nigrht and day on this pressing problem. At present 40.000 children are in the public schools, but 300.000 remain as yet unprovided for. There are 800 teachers, about 60 of whom are from the United States. Both Span ish and English are taught and the chil dren are quick and eager to learn There is no high normal, industrial school or college in the island though Majarado has raised 120,000 for a normal school. Sixteen school inspectors are in the sad dle visiting the different sections of the island and their services are much need ed to keep the native teachers to their tasks which sometimes they are disposed to shirk. Religion is not allowed a place in the curriculum. There ia a widespread de sire to learn English and at Lares the clerks in the stores meet Prof. Scott in the night school that he has opened to study the language. The Presbyterian mission, under the wise generalship of Rev. Dr. John M. Green, the Methodist mission led by Rev. Dr. Drees, the Baptist and EZpiscopal missions conducted respectively by Rev. Drs. McCormick and Van Buren, are doing excellent service in educational and evangelistic lines. Their Sunday and week day services are crowded with curious and interested listeners. The Congregationalists. through the American missionary association have two excellent schools at San Turce and Lares and are doing as thorough work in education as is done by any schools on the island. There is a distinct and emphatic call for a large central board ing school of the higher grade with nor mal and industrial departments. The outlook for industrial, educational and religious quickening is encouraging. During the past two years great ad vances have been made. The people in spite of the present disturbances are ex pectant of changes for the better. The hope of that fair land is in the chil dren.
