Minister Wu is making a fight against
the re-enactment of the Chinese ex
clusion on the ground that it is unfair
and unjust to single out this people
from all the rest of the world and make
them the object of such legislation. He
would like to debate the question with
some of the advocates of the exclusion
law. But there is nothing to debate.
Nobody has made any claim for keep
ing out Wu's people on the score of
Justice; it is largely a matter of busi
ness and incidentally of morals.
Jules Verne has lived to see the sub
marine boat an accomplished fact- The
Holland submarine torpedo boat Ful
ton has made a successful test of re
maining under water for 15 hours, or
from 7:30 o'clock one evening: until
10:30 o'clock the following morning.
Those who went down in the Holland
in addition to her crew were officers of
the navy, an engineer and an electri
cian. A severe storm passed over the
ocean during the night and sent huge
waves to the harbor and shore, but al
though there was but six feet of water
over the top of the turrets those on
board felt nothing of the storm. The
Fulton settled evenly to the bottom and
rested quietly there until she came to
the surface In the morning.
The railroads are sharing In the gen
eral prosperity that is favoring the

one that has not increased Its actual
earnings and, in some, the Increase is
noticeable, among them the Santa Fe;

It la rumored that there will be some
opposition to the confirmation of the
appointment of Capt. Crozier of Leav
enworth to the position of chief of
ordnance with the rank of brigadier
general. Commenting upon the matter
the Providence Telegram says: Matters
appear to be a little mixed in the ap
pointment of Capt. Crozier to succeed
Gen. Burlington, army chief of ordnance.
This Is a Jump over twenty-eight offi
cers who are Crozler's senior In rank,
and gives him the rank of brigadier
general. The last official act of Buffing
ton was to sign a contract for $300,000
worth of gun carriages, which had been
reported against by the fortifications
board. Gen. Buffington maintained that
the carriage, which was the Joint inven
tion of himself and Capt. Crozier, should
be continued. Unless Secretary Root
revokes this 1300,000 order there will be
more inquiries concerning the why, un
der all circumstances of Crozler's ap
pointment. We are not among those
who affirm that advancement must al
ways be by the rule of seniority, and
we agree with the president that the
good of the service in the army de
mands that promotions should be made
for merit. Merit and experience often
go together with seniority, though not
always. Now that Crozier Is appointed,
the question naturally is, what will be
come of Bufflngton's order for the $300,
000 worth of goods not wanted.
KANSAS' GRAND HARVEST.
The Worcester (Mass.) Spy com

port as follows:
Everybody knows that the past sea
son was a proud one for Kansas. It
probably Is not understood, however,
Just how great the state's industrial
triumph was. The secretary of the
state agricultural department has Just
issued a renort showing that the total
yield of wheat was 91,000,000 bushels
with a home value of $51,000,000. This
yield of wheat surpasses any other
harvest in the history of Kansas and
exceeds any single harvest of any other
state. There was an average Of sixty
one bushels for every inhabitant of the
state. In spite of the great drougnt
the total value of the wheat and corn
crops was but eleven per cent below
that of last year. This year's corn
crop was 42,000,000 bushels having a
home value of about $22,000,000. The
counties of Sumner and Barton pro
duced last summer 12,000,000 bushels of
wheat. The secretary points out that
taking into account the value of the
harvest and that there is already about
$60 per capita m the banks of the state,
no one need worry about Kansas'
ability to get through the winter com

Spiritual Sensation Has Ap
peared in Butler County.
Young Towanda Girl is a Favor
HUNDREDS CALL TO SEE
Nellie Shrlrer But 13 Years Old
Mysterious Rappings and Slate
Spirits Foint Out Boys Who
Killed Favorite Dog.
El Dorado. Kan.. Nov. 29. "Towanda
has a spiritual sensation. Miss Nellie
Shriver. a girl of 13 years, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Josh Shriver, who are
among the oldest pioneers of the town
ship, seems to be the special and favor
ite medium of spirit manifestations that
are v&ry strange and curious. That Miss
Nellie is sincere and all the writings, an
swers by writings, and queer exhibitions
genuine is held by all who have been to
see them, and they are many.
"The rappings began about two years
ago and were at first terrifying to the
family. They came more pronounced as
time went on and familiarity lessened
their terrors until Miss Nellie offered op-
fiortunity for writing which they cra
iraced. She takes a slate to bed with
her and placing it and a pencil beneath
the covers, instantly the writing begins,
the scratching of the pencil plainly heard
and the writing perfectly legible. All
this with no eftect nor actiii on her
part. Questions answered by yea or no,
ages of people and the like are answered
accurately and promptly by rappings up
on the bedstead. Doubting persons or
those who speak or act slightingly to
ward the spirits are met by a storm of
rappings upon the bedstead and it and
its coverings are tossed about like a boat
on storm beaten waters.
"Miss Nellie and her family disclaim
any collusion with the spirits. She is the
involuntary means of communication with
the material world. Some time ago the
Shrivers lost a favorite and valuable dog.
It mysteriously disappeared: the spirits
wrote the names of neighboring boys who
killed the dog and threw its body in a
sink. This was confirmed by a boy who
said he had been solicited to assist in the
"These strange things have caused the
serious to flock to the Shriver home in
freat numbers and the notoriety is very
isagreeable, yet they are powerless to
stop the strange and uncanny occur
rences." TWO SUDDEN DEATHS.
Mr. Smith, of Wakaruaa, and Mrs.
Dunpby, of Carbon dale.
Carbondale, Nov. 29. The people ol
this community have been greatly
shocked by the sudden deaths of two
persons within a period of 24 hours.
About 6 o'clock Monday evening at
the home of Cyrus C. Smith, residing
near Wakarusa, Mr3.: Smith and her
son stepped into the yard to attend to
some chores, leaving Mr. Smith, who
was somewhat lame from rheumatism,
in the house. A few minutes later the
mother and son returned to the house
and found Mr. Smith lying on the floor,
in the throes of death.
Tuesday afternoon Mrs. Sarah Ann

When they returned shortly after,
they found Mrs. Dunphy with her el
bows resting on the frame of the loom
and her hands supporting her head,

Mrs. Dunphy was the widow of an
ex-confederate veteran, her husband
having served in the rebel army.
Both were victims of heart disease
and both were in unusually high spirits
all day prior to their deaths.

Fortune Left by Dead Historian to
NeW York, Nov. 29. According to the
Herald more than a half million dollars
is to be distributed among the heirs of
George Bancroft, historian, who died
in Washington, D. C, on January 17.
1891. The New York Life Insurance
company as trustees brought suit for a
construction of certain clauses of the
will and also for an accounting of the
will. Mr. Bancroft was 91 years of age
at the time of his death. A peculiar
feature of his will executed in 1887 was
the tying up of the bulk of his fortune
until November 1, 1900. Charles C. Glo
ver and James M. Johnson were ap
pointed executors and trustees. The
referee, Franklin B. Lord has reported
that at the end of three years, the ex
ecutors turned over to the trust com
pany securities worth $541,873 and this
has since increased to $614,426. The
referee finds that $68,000 is now suffi
cient to pay the income to the annuit
ants. This leaves almost $650,000 for
immediate distribution. This will be as

RABBITS BY WAGON LOAD.
Thanksgiving Hunters Secured
Plenty of Game.
It Is estimated that several wagon
loads of rabbits have been offered for
sale to Topeka meat dealers within the
past 24 hours by sportsmen who went
forth Thanksgiving day seeking what
ever they might shoot at.
The country was full of hunters
Thanksgiving day. Some of the trains
running out into the surrounding coun
try early in the morning bristled with
shooting irons of various descriptions,
and scores of sportsmen went out in
Quail was the principal game sought.
The quail season does not properly be
gin until December 1, next Sunday, but
most hunters think Thanksgiving day
is near enough to the open quail seasoa
to risk killing a few if they see them
and are good enough shots. The latter
condition is important. But compara
tively few quail were bagged. Either
the birds received a tip of what was
coming and hid out; or else there wers
none to hide. It is claimed that many
people have been violating the game
laws and killing quail out of season,
and that already the birds are scarce
before the season has legally opened.
The mortality among the rabbits was
something frightful, however. Every
body who could shoot anything at ail
shot the poor rabbits. Enough rabbits
were slaughtered Thanksgiving day to
furnish material for sausage for some
time to come.
