The State Journal Is a member of the
Associated Press and receives the lull

organization for exclusive afternoon puo

The news is received In the State jour

success seems no nearer than it was in
It appears that Admiral Dewey has
resigned the presidency of the Metro
politan club, as a dignified protest
against the harsh criticism of mem
bers that his rulings as head of the
court of inquiry were too favorable to
Admiral Schley. The Metropolitan is
a rather exclusive club of army and
navy officers, high government officials
and diplomats, and is somewhat inac
cessible to the average public opinion.
If a religious meeting carried on by
Americans had been broken up and
eleven of the participants murdered, in
a foreign country the whole world
w-ould have been shaken by the thunder
by our tones in demanding satisfaction.
Tet that is substantially what happen

that all concerned were American citi

it beyond giving the account of the

right ahead with the business of send
ing missionaries to convert the heathen
and the government is backing the mis
sionaries with guns when occasion
seems to require it which by the way is
not so infrequently as it should be.
How long shall we remain oblivious to

GOT THE WRONG MAN.
Agent Told Assistant Labor Commis
sioner Things He Didn't Intend.
An agent for an eastern concern that
sells sewer pipes ran afoul of Assistant
Labor Commissioner B. F. Scott com
ing up town from the Santa Fe depot
in the street car today. The agent is
after a contract in Pittsburg, Kan., and
he has no use for the eight-hour working-day
law. It interferes with sewer
contracts and makes it hard to sell his
He was telling his neighbor this in the
car and waxed indignant. Ultimately
he became confidential with the stranger
and unfolded a plan for beating the
"I'll beat it, see if I don't." he de
clared. "Oh, no. you won't," replied Scott,
"you'd better not try it my friend."
And then Scott told him he was as
sistant to Labor Commissioner W. Lee
Johnson, whose hobby is the enforce
ment of the eight-hour law.
The agent got off the car at the post
office. He had burned his powder pre
maturely. COSTLY BUGGY RIDE.
Elmer Burns Must Pay $41.95 For
Going Out With Another's Wife.
Attorney Joseph Reed took a trip to
Rossville Thursday to defend Elmer
Burns, a young man charged with dis
turbing the peace of one Curtis. The
case was calied before Justice G. C.
Pierce, who is also the town druggist.
The disturbance for which Burns was
arrested consisted of buggy riding with
the wife of the complaining witness,
and a big crowd of Rossvilleites con
gregated in the little drug store, ex
pecting to hear some interesting tes
timony, but Burns fooled them all by
pleading guilty and taking a fine of Jl
and costs, amounting to $41.95. Toay
that the population of iRossvilier was
disgusted would be putting it mildly,
when they found that the scandal of
the case was not for their ears. Burns
was unable to pay the fine and costs, so
he is now engaged in thumping it out
on the stone pile at the county jail.
Curtis declares that the case will be
followed shortly by another, in which
Mrs. Curtis will be required to gie
good arid sufficient reasons why she
should not be divorced from her in

County Clerk Wright and his assist

The new ballot law makes many odd
provisions. According to the law a cer
tain heading must be printed across the
entil e top Vf the general ballot. Then a
certain space must be devoted to the
party emblems and the circle for vot
ing the straight ticket. The result this
year is that there is a ballot large
enough for a stray notice to be posted
on and all except one line at the bot
tom where the names of the candidates
for county commissioner appear is de
voted to an explanation to the voter,
the party emblems and the circle.

MISS ZELMA RAWLSTOfl
The Most Successful Male Impersonator on
the American Stage Cures Her Cough
and Keeps Her Throat and Voice
in Perfect Condition With
MISS ZELMA RAWXSTOH,
Many letters are received daily, similar to
the following one from Miss Kawlston, from
prominent singers and artists who use noth
ing but DR. BULL'S COUGH SYKUP to
prevent hoarseness and cure coughs.
Whenever I have had a cough or been
troubled with hoarseness during my profes
sional career I have alwavs used DR. tHjLiLi a
COUGH SYRUP, which has worked like
magic. It cures my hoarseness and my
coughs almost ins-tantly. This is the kind of
medicine I must have so as to keep my voice
in condition, as you know my work as a male
impersonator is very hard ou the voice and
throat. I have never found anything that
cures as quickly and as thoroughly any anec-
tion of the throat as UK. in. 1.1. f I hi on
SYRUP. Very truly, ZELMA KAWLSTON,
74 W. asth St.. New York City. Aug. 7, 1901.
For fifty years singers, actors, public speak
ers and clergymen have used UK. i L LL'h
COUGH SYliUP to prevent hoarseness and
to cure coughs and colds and all affections of
the throat on account of the absolute security
they feel in its curative qualities. Thousands
of doctors prescribe DR. BULL'S COUGH
SYRUP and many of the prominent hospi
tals use it exclusively for hoarseness, asthma,
bronchitis, coughs, colds, grip, influenza
Be sure you get ths genuine. See that the
trade-mark, " Bull's Head," is on the pack
age. Cheap substitutes are injurious. Large
bottles 25c. at all druggists.

A MATTER OF DAYS.
Early Release of Miss Stone la
Constantinople, Nov. 1. The negotia
tions with the captors of Miss Ellen M.
Stone, the American missionary, appear
to be going on so successfully that her
release seems now to be only a matter
of days. So far from there being' any
confirmation of the rumors of her death
circulating in the Bulgarian border dis
tricts, it is said here that another let
ter written two days ago has been re
ceived from her.
BAKNES MAI' MOVE UP.
If Saunders Resigns He May Be As
N. r. Saunders, assistant state audi
tor. Is interested with Attorney General
Godard, A. D. Walker and William
Fisher in the new national bank that
these Kansans will start in Colorado
City, Col. It is expected that Mr. Saun
ders will be cashier of the- new bank.
In the event of Mr. Saunders' resigna
tion it is probable that Charles W.
Barnes, now chief clerk, will be ad
vanced to assistant auditor.
TO SAVE MONEY.

Miss Coles is still suffering from the
nervous shock attending her encounter
with the negro. She was unable to sleep
all Wednesday night and secured but
little rest yesterday and last night. She
has not felt equal to the task of going
to the city Jail to see the negro. The po
lice do not have more than a suspicion
that Howard is her assailant but think
it best to hold him awhile as he does not
live in Topeka.

injunction to refrain from labor.
The celebration of the feast of All
Saints' day is in honor of the unknown
saints who perished during the days
of Roman persecution. The calendar
of the church includes holy days for the
known saints, and the day set apart
as All Saints' day is to give reverence
to all those who perished but who are
unknown so far as historical record is
Tomorrow is All Souhs' day, and
prayers for the repose of all souls of
the Christians who perished in the
Roman persecution will be offered. On
