personal representative on the floor of
the senate was not at the White House
dinner given Tuesday evening to a
number of party leaders. Was this an
oversight on the part of the president
or did Senator Burton have another en
gagement? A learned medical man In Philadel
phia has investigated the recent cases
of lockjaw in that city and has reach
ed the conclusion that they were not In
any way connected with vaccination

THE PASSING OF JENKINS.
From the Detroit Free Press.
Abundant material for a comic opera
Is supplied in the brief record of Wil
liam M. Jenkins, whom the president
has Just removed from the governor
ship of Oklahoma. A more Ingenuous
offender has never appeared upon the
American stage of action. In compli
ance with his official duty to let a con
tract to some person or corporation to
look after the Insane of the territory,
he awarded the job to a sanitarium
company which appears to have
sprung Into existence in response to
this particular requirement. Ten thou
sand dollars' worth of the stock of this
concern found Its way Into the hands of
the governor as the result of this deal.
Some observing citizen had Mr. Jen
kins brought to book for this thrlfti
ness and upon Ms naive explanation
of his crookedness he worked his own
removal. It Is impossible upon the face
of the facts not to give him the benefit
of a doubt and wish that he could start
the whole thing over again.
It is perfectly apparent that Jenkins
thought it the usual thing for a states
man in office permitting such action, to
gather some of the money going about
for himself or his friends or both. He
had no thought that he was doing
more than following an established and
recognized custom. Other men with
the vested power of letting contracts
were taking down a scale and It was
proper for him to do the same. He
does not make the slightest effort to
excuse his course, but explains It all
just as though the explanation carried
with, it . a vindication. The governor
wed some political obligations and he
was man enouga to wast to pay them,
an evidence of political probity that la
in Itself refreshing.
Not having any idle offices or ready
money with which to meet the indebt
edness Jenkins saw and seized his op
portunity in the sanitarium company.
It had stock to burn, as it were, and a
few thousand shares cut little figure,
for the taxpayers of the territory were
to settle and the company allowed
margin enough to square any official
power that might be in need of a little
help. Jenkins may not be a profound
scholar or deeply versed in the morals
that should govern practical politics,
but he is evidently a keen and ac
curate observer. Jobbery and Indirect
bribery are rampant throughout the de
partments of government. Legislative
favors are largely purchased, directly
or indirectly, from congress to the vil
lige councils. Where Jenkins slipped
was in not knowing that such thing3
must be done under ground or behind
closed doors. He innocently comes out
and tells the whole story as though It
would clear him. because it is so in
keeping with the record of many men
holding public positions and frequently
securing advancement. He is a novice
and hence becomes a victim. Poor fel
low! He might not have been kicked
out of the temple as a money changer
had he perjured himself with the non
chalance of the modern bribe-taker.
Hia innocence worked his downfall.
Judge Doster Decides In Their
Faror in Shift Controversy.
Chief Justice Doster this afternoon

WHO OWNS THE BILL?
One Hundred Dollars in Atchison
Bank Awaiting Owner.
Atchison, Dec. S. Several weeks ago
a man from the neighborhood of Rush-
ville came to Atchison with a $100 bill
which he had had in his possession for
over twenty years. It was almost ready
to fall to pieces, and nobody, not even
the bankers, cared to give good money
for it. At the First National bank the
man was kdvised to send it to the
United States treasurer for redemption.
He didn't know just how to go about
it, and S. A. Frazler wrote to the treas
urer for him, on bank stationery, en
closing the bill and requesting that the
new bill be sent to the man s address
The request was complied with, and
for some reason the new bill was re
turned to the bank, which hasn't the
name of the owner of the bill, and no
body remembers it. His name was not
preserved, as it was expected the money
would be sent direct to him, as directed.

CATTLE IN THE SOUTH.
Paper Read by Prof. Soule of the Ten
nessee Agricultural College.
Chicago, Dec 5. When President
Springer had called the convention of
the National Live Stock association to
order today he said the programme for
the day was one of exceptional interest
to cattlemen. The programme called
for papers from Dr. J. H. Senner. of
New York; Prof. Andrew H. Soule, ot
the Tennessee Agricultural college; F.
E. Warren, of Wyoming; A. F. Dore
mus, state engineer of Utah, and Col.
G. W. Simpson, of Texas.
Mr. Soule's paper, telling of the cat
tle business in the middle south, was
the first one heard by the convention.
He said the present condition of stock
husbandry there was unsatisfactory, it
being attributable to the civil war,
when the live stock interest was prac
tically annihilated, to the ease of living
in a delightful and salubrious climate,
the previous lack of industrial develop
ment and the profitable nature of cot
ton culture. t
The middle south today, he said, of
fered as fine an o 'ortunity for breed
ing as any other section of the world.
If breeders wouid have their cattle im
munized, which could now be success
fully done at slight cost, and hold auc
tion sales in the south and stimulate
and assist the people in their efforts to
establish and improve the quality of
their stock, they would be amply re
paid for the time and money invested.
He presented statistics to show that
tlio potential stock productive capacity
of the middle south would soon become
an Important matter to tne stocKmen
of the United States.
Senator F. E. Warren, of Wyoming,
read a paper in which he enumerated
needs which he said cattlemen would
present to congress:
1. Defeat of the Grout oleomargarine
2. Legislation to prevent deceit and
fraud in marketing manufactured ar
ticles. 3. Legislation to provide for the open
ing of forest reservations where prac
ticable for live stocK grazing.
4. Legislation providing for the tak
ing of an annual live stock census,
s. Amendments to land laws to per
mit settlers to exchange lands with the
general government so that range prop
erties may be solidified, especially
within the so-called railroad limits,
where the aided railroads secured al
ternate government sections.
6. Amendment to the law to enable
the Interstate commerce commission to
enforce its decisions.
7. Enactment of pure food laws, com
oelling all food products to be sold for
exactly what they are.
8. Legislation permitting extension of
transit limit for transportation of live
stock in cars.
9. Legislation to increase duties on
meat products imported from Germany
whenever tne German empire passes a
law imposing prohibitive duties on
American meat products.
10. Legislation providing for leasing
the grazing lands of the United States
11. Retention of government inspec
tion of live stock and the further free
distribution of black leg vaccine until
the full period of experimental work
Dr. Senner was not present when his
name was called and Chairman Spring
er said he would use Dr. Senner's time
to hear more of the Ave minute speecnes
crowded out of the programme Tues

the dairy interests, who uphold the
Grout bill, led the debate with the plea
that with oleomargarine selling under
its own colors, butter could hold its
own. "You cattlemen," said he, "insist
that coloring of oleomargarine should
be allowed, yet you insist that the wool
interests should be" protected against
shoddy masquerading as wool."
Ex-Governor Packard of Iowa moved
that the whole subject be deferred,
when Judge Cowan arose and said that
packers had as much right to color
oleomargarine as dairymen have to
color butter. The discussion was par
ticipated in by members of the Kan
sas, California, Missouri, Michigan and
Iowa delegations. It was the first gen
eral debate of the convention.
Judge Cowan brought the speaking to
