LEASED wTR'S REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATED PR333. The State Journal Is a member of the "Associated Press and receives the full day telegraph report of that great news or ganization for exclusive afternoon publica tion in Topeka. The news Is received In the State Jour : Jiai building over wires for this sole pur pose, fcuv through the entire day. A complete copy of the nlKht report is also ? received. x The path to election to the U. S. sen ate has been made as smooth as glass j (or General Alger. ' ' , It looks as though the coal barons will make use of the strike to clean up the old culm. banks, which are said to be ; balf coal. t Fred Collier tells the readers of the Globe-Democrat .that Kansas people can't afford to burn corn, but that they ! can burn anthracite. ; Kx-Senator Allen of Nebraska appears ? determined to administer the final blow ' to Populism. He Is insisting that Col. Bryan Join the party. The mother of the Spanish king has been so annoyed by the boy's perversity in matrimonial affairs that she has mar ried her own master of horse. The stringency bordering on panic which has existed In Wall street for - some days appears to have no effect on the general prosperity of the country. - Human life appears to be safer In the state of Washington than it is In New York. The mayor of Seattle was lost In the woods two days, and nobody shot him for a deer. " Now It Is being said In some quarters that the president's speeches make votes for the Democrats. Is there no way that the party of Jefferson can avoid carrying the next house? Senator Hanna tells Ohio Republican to "stand pat" on the "let well enough alone" proposition, but he failed to say whether or not they shall stick to the position that there are no trusts. ' Topeka capitalists and real estate owners are side-stepping an excellent opportunity for building up the city and making money for themselves by ne glecting to build trolley lines to the sur- rounding towns. After four years of work John Henry, of. Tamaqua, Pa., expects to complete soon a flying machine capable of lifting twenty times Its weight, which he will enter for the $100,000 prize at the world's fair airship tournament. Indianapolis News: Cuban reciprocity promises to be one of the big questions at the coming session of congress. The beet sugar men have delayed, but they cannot prevent the enactment of a Just . eyst9i of dealing with our neighbor. Business prospects are excellent, says Clew's Financial Review, railroad earn ings continue large, and It is certain , that the roads will be ' taxed to their fullest capacity in handling freight for another six months. Alreaoy there are fears of a serious car famine. No abate ment is shown in the general demand for iron. Home furnaces cannot supply the demand, and orders for about 60,000 tons steel billets and 100,000 tons pig Iron are being placed in English and German markets; while over 135,000 tons of foundry iron have already been Imported into this country. Here and there signs of reaction can be detected, and the horizon is not cloudless by any means; but thanks to a good harvest the outlook Is satisfactory far beyond what any human judgment could have foretold three months ago. Confidence In the future in running strong; too strong perhaps for entire safety, for the - chief danger now lies in the excesses ' which Inevitably accompany a period of prolonged prosperity. Were It not for the restraint of tight money, we should now probably be in the midst of a spec ulative orgy, with the public highly ex cited over the effects of magnificent railroad deals, and the big insiders quietly allowing them to assist In light ening their present burdens. Fortunate ly this experience has been postponed, if not averted; so tight money Is e, bless ing in disguise. OUR BORAX FIELD. Bulletin No. 200 of the United Star's geological survey, now In press, by M M. R. Campbell, gives the results of reconnaissance of the borax denoslts of Death Valley and Mohave Desert, Call' fornia. The occurrence of borax in the Unitec States, so far as known, is limited tc the states of California. Nevada, and Oregon. The borax industry has passed 'through several stages of development Originally, In 1SS4, borax was produced by evaporating the waters of Clear Lake, about 80 miles north of San Fran cisco. Then the borax crust on many of the alkaline marshes of eastern Cali fornia and western Nevada was refined. About 1890 It was found that the borax crust 'on the marshes is a sec ondary deposit derived from beds of borate of lime In the Tertiary lake sedi ments of the region. This discovery rev olutionized the industry. A mine "was established on the bedded deposit at Borate, 12 miles northeast of Daggett, San Bernardino county, California, and at the present time this plant, owned b,y the Pacific Coast Borax company. Is the chief producer of borax and boraclo acid in this country. ; t The value of this deposit led to exten sive prospecting and to the - discovery In Death Valley of enormous deposits, far exceeding those now worked near Daggett. The borax of Death Valley, as well as that near Daggett, occurs In & regular stratum. ' Mohave Desert Is located in Kern, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino coun ties, California, and lies in the angle be tween the Sierra Madre on th south, the Sierra Nevada on the west, and thence it stretches eastward to Color ado river and northward to Death Val ley. This desert forms a part of the Great Basin. The most noted feature of the region is Death Yalley which lies E0 miles east of the Sierra Nevada and only a. few miles west of the Nevada state line. This valley, about 50 miles long and from 5 to to miles wide. Is at its lowest point about 480 feet below sea level, with mountains towering on either side nearly to the region of per petual snow.. At the ranch maintained near the mouth of Furnace creek by the Pacific Coast Borax company the sum mer temperature is reported to reach 137 degrees in the shade: but by means of a double roof and running water, habitation is rendered possible even in this intense heat. Wherever sufficient water can be obtained, both in the Mo have Desert and in the Death Valley region, the soil proves fertile and vege tation !s luxuriant. Death Valley . receiw d its sinister name from the fact that in 1849 a band of emigrants wandered into the valley, and most of them perished from thirst before an avenue of escape was dis covered. In addition to borax deposits. Death Valley,- contains an immense salt field, which may in time become valuable. It Is about 30 miles long, from 2 to 4 miles wide, and the crust of salt probably av erages one foot in thickness. . Refining would be necessary before the salt could be placed upon the market. - JAYHAWKER JOTS. The lucky man to draw a horse at an Atwood raffle had number 13.

Reasons Why He Seeks Presi dent Roosevelt's Defeat. St. Louis, 'Sept 80-A Washington special to the Globe-Democrat says: The secret of J. Plerpont Morgan's pro nounced personal dispatches, to use the immense influences at his command to defeat President Roosevelt for the Re publican nomination In 104, or, failing in that, to support a Democratic candi date for the presidency, has been made plain. There Is in it, of course, a selfish interest, due to the president's hostile attitude against the trusts, many of which are creatures of Mr. Morgan's financial genius. There is also an ele ment of personal resentment, and the reasons for this have just come to light. It dates back several months, to a few days after the attorney general, under the direction of President Roosevelt, commenced legal proceedings against the Northern securities company. Mr. Morgan paid a personal visit to Presi dent Roosevelt and protested against the action of the attorney general. Here is what the president said to him: "I am neither a bull nor a bear on Morgan stocks. I am president of the United ' States, and sworn to execute the law. I will proceed against you or any of your combinations as quickly as I would against a striker; not because I am opposed to either capital or labor, except as either of them Is a violator of the laws of the country." That is the exact language of the president. It was uttered" directly to Mr. Morgan, who had protested against the action of Attorney General Knox in bringing suit against the Northern Se curities company. The occasion is well remembered. Mr. Morgan and a num ber of leading financiers came to Wash ington and stopped at the Arlington for a day and a night. Thev were in con ference with a number of prominent of ficials and called upon the president. It was during that call that the conversa tion took place. Mr. Morgan Insisted that the attorney general had made a mistake and that the administration was being used to bear stocks. Presi dent Roosevelt answered him In the ex act language already quoted, at' the same time assuming full responsibility for the action which had just been ta ken by the attorney general. The head of the great syndicates made no answer at the time that Indica ted his resentment. Since then, how ever, he has been dined by emperors and received with honor, almost with fawning, by European rulers, and has returned filled with bitterness against the president who has dared to oppose him by enforcing the law. He has open ly declared his Intention of opposing the president's nomination and of support ing some "Democrat like Cleveland" in case M..- Roosevelt In the Republican standard-bearer in 19M. Mr. Morgan is known to be exceeding ly bitter at this time, as testimony it being taken in the merger cases, and he will probably be called as a wltnesn. He is incensed that the attorney general should deal with him as with other men who have attempted to form railway pools and have, been called down by the courts. The impression Is gaining support In Washington's official circles that the Morgan opposition to the president is extending to the coal strike. It is known that before Mr. Morgan went to Europe last summer he had a confer ence with Senator Hanna, and left- him with the strong impression -' that he would use his Influence in bringing about a settlement of the strike. . On the strength of this assurance Senator Hanna all but promised that the coal roads, through the influence of Morgan, would accept the good offices of the Civic Federation to settle the strike by arbitration. It was known that Morgan could dictate to the operators, and it was believed that he would do so. SPEflCER IS ALERT. Says He Is Talking Care of Auditorium Cass. City Attorney Chas. F. Spencer takes exception to the statement printed In the State Journal Monday concerning the Auditorium suit in the supreme court. 'The impression is given that tne city's interests are not being looked af ter," says Air. spencer. "As a matter or fact, the city won its case in the dis trict court, concerning the use of the Auditorium for pay entertainments. It was appealed by Mr. Crawford. It is no object to the city to have this rushed to a speedy hearing. We have all we want, and if tne supreme court should hear the case, it might reverse the dis trict court. Mr. Schoch has withdrawn from, the case because the Commercial club did not care to continue paying him fees, but whenever there Is occa sion, I expect to see to it that, the city's interests are looked alter." PIONEER PAY. Frank Kelson Designates October 31 as Day to Be Observed. Frank Nelson, state superintendent of public instruction, has designated Fri day, October 31, as ''Pioneer day" in the public schools, and today he issued an address to those in eharge of the schools of the state asking that the day be ap propriately observed. The address is as follows: "To the School Peonle of Kansas: "Kansas is only forty years old, and yet she has a history of great interest and value. The founders of our state and the pioneers in the different coun ties and communities live In the com monwealth which they helped to rear, and we of today do well to learn anew their lessons of devotion and sacrifice The pioneers are the advance agents of civilization. They lay the foundation! they endure hardships; they build homes and churches and schools, and their children enjoy the rich fruitage of their labor. "Every community in Kansas has history. Every institution of learning has some heroic chapter. Every school district is the center of some Important event. I believe the school children of Kansas and the students of our higher institutions of learning would appre ciate more fully the opportunities which they enjoy if they were made familiar with the hardships and devotion of tne pioneers who- made possible these op portunities. For this reason, I have thought it appropriate to set aside Fri day, October 81, as Pioneer day, to be observed by the schools and the higher institutions of learning of the state. It is also earnestly requested that the American flag be displayed from the school house upon tnis day. "An interesting programme can easily be prepared. Le the members of the school participate with appropriate essays, declamations end music. Invite some of the older members of the com munity to speak In broad and definite terms of the history or. tne scnool ana the community. "While the programme should deal somewhat with the historic characters of the state, yet special attention should be given to the history ot the county and the community. A striking compar ison eould easily be made of the school work of today and that of pioneer days. Attention could be called to the. com forts of home and the superior means of intelligence and communication, and the progress that has been made along the different lines of honorable pursuits. In formation of this kind comes within the The World ' Moves On, AND SO DOES THE WONDERFUL REPUTATION OF Paine's Celery Compound No Other Medicine Ever Accom- plished Such Happy Results. .

Y., were married today at The Fells, Lake Sunapee, the summer home of the bride's father. Although all arrangements for the event were made-,, with the utmost privacy, the residents of this vicinity relt grat interest in it as it is by far the most important wedding that ever took place in this section. Few, how ever, among them received invitations. in fact the number of guests was only 30. The ceremony took place at 2 o'clock. The Rev. C. L.

The city council says so. the police judge says so and this morning the judge of the district court said so, and that ought to settle It. The festive hog pen will have to be moved outside of the city limits of the capital of Kansas. When the city council passed the nnti hog pen ordinance Henry Vesper, who owns a big hog ranch just inside the city limits, announced that he .would contest the validity of the ordinance. He was ar rested and fined $5 In police court. He ap pealed, and Judge Hasen heard the case this morning. Fred Slater, the attorney for Mr. Ves per, made an elaborate argument in bis half of his client. , When he was done, Judge Hazen said: "Well, were your client's hogs Inside of the city limits?" yes, Blr; tney were," said Mr. tsiater. 'That settles it."' said the iudsre. "He's guilty of violating the ordinance. The city has tne ngnt to pass lots una or an ordi nance If it so desires."
