Paul Block, Mw. ITJXL LEASED wTa'H! REFOUT OF TES ASS0CIAI3O The State Journal Is a member of the Associated Press and receives the full day telegraph report of that great news or- f anizatlon for exclusive afternoon publica ion In Topeka. The news is received In the State Jour nal building over wires for this sole pur pose, busy through the entire day. A complete copy of the night report Is also received. James J. Hill Intimates that the peo ple should beware of all trusts but his. Perhaps the president may yet suc ceed in convincing the coal barons that there is something to arbitrate. Bishop Potter's salary has been ad vanced to $15,000. The increase come3 perhaps from grateful saloon keepers tor services rendered. Why didn't the Boston people ask for a receiver for the Miners' union. It is getting more money than the aggrega tion of coal barons is. Gen. Funston's defense of the army canteen has caused the suggestion that his liking for the water "doesn't extend to Its use as a beverage. The Hill faction of the New York Democracy triumphed over the Bryan element at Saratoga, but raised up an other enemy in Devery. It appears that there are Democrats and Democrats. Hill and Devery both lay claim to the title, yet the former would not permit the latter to sit in his convention. David B. Hill made a success of boss ing the state convention, but he seems to have been unwilling to tempt the voters by having himself nominated for governor. The coal strike has reached that point that whatever termination it may have, Is almost certain to exert an important and far reaching influence on future la bor disputes. Mr. Beveridge's effort to hold free trade personally responsible for the ex istence of trusts, does appear to be pop ular. Nobody but the Indiana senator seems to be able to back up the asser tion with argument. It will be recalled that Grover Cleve land once settled a strike in a hurry when it was interfering seriously with the business of this country. President Roosevelt is adopting a different meth od in dealing with the anthracite situa tion but it may not prove less effica cious. If he succeeds, he will be enti tled to the highest praise from Mark Hanna. The ever busy statistician has com piled the following: In the last thirty years the population of the United States has increased by 37,000,000; that of France by 3.000,000; that of the United Kingdom by 10,000,000; that of Germany by 15,000,000. One-fourth of the French people live in towns, one-half of the Germans, and in the United States one third. The drift to the towns has been very rapid in the last thirty years. The Imports per head of population of the United States in 1900 were $10; of the United Kingdom, $49; of France, $21; of Germany, $21.30. The United States exported $1,430,000,000 worth; the United Kingdom, $1,415,000,000 worth; France, $820,000,000 worth; Germany. $1,110,000, 000 worth. Our exports per head of pop ulation were $14.5; United Kingdom, $.30; France, $18.50; Germany, $16.75. THE APPROACHING ELECTION. From the Washington Post. So apathetic has been the country re garding the present campaign that it is Impossible, even with theelection less than six weeks distant, to rredict the outcome upon the basis of definite knowledge. The claims of the profes sional politicians are not worthy of serious consideration. The Republican managers are positive that the election will result in a Republican victory, w hile the Democratic leaders are equal ly certain that success will perch upon their banners. As a matter of fact, neither side knows anything about it. Each is working in the dark. Each is sowing seed In the shape of spoken word and printed sentence, but, like the far mer, can only hope that the harvest will come. There is no certainy, no infallible cause which can be relied upon to in variably produce the same effect. This, however, will not spare us the spectacle of the victorious congressional commit tee flapping its wings and crowing lust ily the moment the result is known. So few have been the developments of the campaign that it is impossible to find many straws to tell which way the wind is blowing. In fact, the few straw which are to be observed indicate the presence of varied and perplexing cur rents. For instance, the recent election in Maine, where the Republican plurali ty exceeded the usual figures In an off year, might well be accepted by the dominant party as an indication of suc cess next November were it not that the party solidity observable in Maine is aadly lacking in Iowa, There are, in deed, many clouds upon the Republican sky. The continuance of the coal strike Is a serious menace to Republican suc cess. The inconvenience and extortion to which every householder is subjected is being charged against the Republican administration and It does not lessen the importance of the fact to say that the charge is unfounded. The part play ed by the Homestead strike in the defeat of Benjamin Harrison, is not to be for gotten. The increased cost of living is another factor which operates againsv the Republicans. We have only to re call the Democratic landslide which fol lowed the high prices caused by the enactment of the McKinley tariff law to prove that the American voter is very sensitive to an undue drain upon his pocket. Nor does it matter whether the dominant party is actually to blame for the objectionable conditions. It is made the vicarious sacrifice. The aver age voter, discontented and anxious for a reform, marks his ballot for the op position and then expects the millen nium to dawn. With apathy prevalent in the Republi can ranks, with an almost universal protest agalns the high-handed, arbi trary extortion of monopolies, with high prices demanded for the necessaries of life, with labor troubles in many states seriously disturbing industrial condi tions, with the party divided against Itself upon the question of tariff reform, it would seem as if Republican victory, if accomplished at all, .would be. reached in spite of tremendous odds. Indeed, it would seem an easy thing to accurately predict Republican defeat. And yet, even with the Republican pathway strewn with thorns, the chances would seem to be in favor of Republican suc cess. The Democrats are not without troubles of their own. Is the Republican party divided? It is solidity Itself compared with the Democratic party, rent with schisms, jealousies, and ob stinate upholding of divergent views. Is the Republican party confronted by a general desire to remedy present condi tions? Who knows how far this desire is held in check by the memory of the dark days of 1893? The American voter may be fickle, but the dismal exper iences which he Buffered under the last Democratic administration were burned deeply into his memory and make him pause ere he flies from the evils of the present into a repetition of the disas trous woes of nine years ago. And if comparison be instituted into campaign management, who is there with temeri ty enough to acquit the Democrats of wasting time, energy, and brains in try ing to force the Philippine question to the front as a party issue? It was a foolish, senseless endeavor, and the American people, who make issues for themselves, have forgotten about the Philippines and have forced the Demo crats to the consideration of the trust and tariff questions. It was circum stance, not foresight or wisdom, which led the Democrats to finally 'emphasize the one issue that appeals to the uni versal mind. ' . It may be that the Democrats will win. the approaching election. If they do,-It will not be because of their own good management or their inherent strength of organization, or because their man agers are the embodiment of political sagacity. If they win, it will be in spite of themselves and because the Republi can have themselves invited that re suit QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. It takes "rocks" to make a man solid. The millionaire's chief end is the divid-end. One week in the country makes one strong in the city. There are a good many "also rans" in the human race. Home-made bread is responsible for many a crusty temper. A man looks anything but merry when the laugh is on him. A man has to have a pretty hard cheek to travel on his face. The man who is looking for trouble can find trouble without trouble. It's funny that a politician becomes a hanger-on,after he loses his grip. The bargain-hunter's favorite hymn should be the "sweet buy and buy." It sometimes happens that the grumpy doctor has the most patients. It's only natural that the man who is") perpetually short should be looked down The reason bachelors don't marry is probably because they believe that mis fortunes never come singly. "The coffee." remarked the boarder, is like the oualitv of mercy." "So?" queried the landlady with a show of in terest, ies; it s not strained. The melancholy days are come. The saddest of the year. It's still too warm for hot drinks. And not warm enough for beer. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. From the Chicago News. Love mav be blind, but small broth ers see everything in sight. Though the ostrich may not be a gambler he has tips on many races. From the cat's point of view a saucer of cream is the lap of luxurv. Few worren know how to grow old gracefully and even thev do not want to. If brevity is the soul of wit some of our modern Jokesmiths must be soul less. Laugh, and the world laughs with you; growl, and the world laughs at vou. Some men make a specialty of being honest only because it pays better than dishonesty. If the wife is a slave to fashion the poor husband must of necessity be a slave to the almighty dollar. There is a similarity in the making of salads and jokes. They are more likely to suit our own taste than the tastes of others. It is rumored that pocketless trousers will be the correct thing this fall. Tail ors evidently realize that men who pay cash for clothes have no use for pockets. REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR. From the New Tork Press. The garter has hanged more men than the halter. The only jewel a woman has no tse for !s consistency. Innocence -cv.its being it just as soon as it knows what innocence is. It's funnv that the women's clothes that are never seen are mostly made for show. Tt costs more moner to keep up your own family than it does to break up an other man s.

Cole Robbed Within Half a Block of Police Station. J. Cole, who Is employed at the Hap good livery stable at 514 Jackson street, was held up, sandbagged and robbed last night in the alley just back of the barn and within balf a block of police headquarters. The two bold robbers who made the assault evidently knew Cole and knew that he carried money, as thev secured more than $100 from him. The robbery occurred about 9:30. Cole had gone up on Kansas avenue to a restaurant, where he ate a lunch and was returning to the barn through the alley. He entered the alley on Sixth avenue between Kansas avenue and Jackson street, and was coming along in a dark place in the rear of Peterson's barn, two doors from the place where he is employed, when the two robbers jumped upon him, without saying a word, and began to bit him with some heavy weapon. Before he could utter a cry he was knocked insensible. He don't know how long he was in this con dition, and when he partially recovered, staggered into the barn and began to tell his story to his assistant. What has become of your watch?" exclaimed his partner. His watch and chain had disappeared. He began a search of his pockets and discovered further that he was also short all the money he had on his person when he was assaulted, over $100. The robbers had cleaned him out systematically, gleaning $56 cf his own money and about $50 belonging to the proprietor of the barn. He went at once to the police station and gave the alarm, but owing to the darkness of the spot se lected by the robbers, he was unable to give much of a description of them. His arms and face were bruised and his neck showed unmistakable signs of a vigorous attempt at strangulation. This is the only successful hold up, from a financial standpoint, which has occurred in Topeka for some time. The victim usually escapes with a bad fright and all his money. The nerve of the men in holding the man up so near his place of business and within call of the police station would indicate that they were not novices at the business and were confident of their ability to "fix" the victim before he could make n outcry. The circumstances would also indicate that the robbers are par ties who know Cole and his habit of carrying money. MORE MINERS OUT. Strike Ordered Because Relief Assessment Is Not Collected. Birmingham. Ala,. Oct. 2. Twenty- five hundred miners in the employ of the Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad company, on orders from the executive board of the United Mine Workers of America, district of Alabama, suspend ed work today. The suspension is on account of the refusal of the operators to collect for the union the one dollar per week assessment made on all unionj miners for the benefit of the anthracite strikers in Pennsylvania. It is thought probable that the Blue Creek and Bloc ton mines of the Tennessee company also will be involved if an adjustment is not soon reached. About two weeks ago the Tennessee company declined to withhold the assessment money from certain miners at West Pratt who ob jected to its payment and 600 men at that mine were ordered out. Today s suspension makes the total number now out 3,000. The miners of the Sloss Shefneld Steel &Iron company are hold ing a mass meeting at Cardiff today to determine what course they will pursue. ELLIOTT IS HAPPY. Edith Willits and Her Latest Husband Heard From. Leavenworth, Kas., Oct. 2. The mys terious woman who was married at Abilene, Kas., last Tuesday to F. W. Elliott, and which episode has been given much space in the columns of all the Kansas papers since that time, was with her husband in Leavenworth yes terday morning and left with the hus band on the noon train for Kansas City. Mo. The woman was married under the name of Miss Edith Sims, but is now known to be Mrs. Elizabeth Willits, whose husband, Emory Willits, resides f 1 , .-.-sir-'.. aS Straight fronted blouse of .striped albatross having a tucked round yoke garnished with black velvet ribbons and lace galloons. on a farm near Grantville, Kas. She was formerly -Miss Simmons, of Perry, Kas., whose father was at one time mayor of that village, and was recently shot and killed by his brother-in-law, J. Colley, as a result of a feud. Elliott, whom she married at Abilene, is a traveling salesman for the F. Mayer Boot and Shoe company, of Milwaukee, Wis., with headquarters at Emporia, Kas. He met the woman at Lindsborff, Kas., for the first time. She told him she wa3 heiress to $70,000 and that her father was a rich banker in Topeka. Elliott believed this and they were mar ried. The couple was found by a reporter sitting on a baggage - truck at Union station and seemed totally oblivious to their surroundings, but were rudely brought back to earth when the repre sentative of the press approached and inquired their destination. They saw that they were "it," and Mr. Elliott saidi "Please don't print anything more in the papers. We are married, happy and everythins is on the level. We are of age and able to take care of ourselves, and there is not a word of truth in the stories that have been published. The bride denies tie stories to the effect that she has deserted a husband, and accounted for her peculiar actions by saying that she wished to shake a young man who was trying to marry her.

TRYABITA FOOD CO., Ltd., - Battle Creek', Klich. $50,000 FOR A VOTE. Member of St. Louis Council Sajs He Refused It. St. Louis, Oct. 2. When Judge Ryan's court met today the trial of Robei M. Snyder, banker and promoter, on the charge of bribery in connection with the passage of the central traction bill was resumed. E'rederick (3. XJtholf, who was a member of the county coun cil in April, 1898, was put on the stand by the state. It is expected to prove that money was paid to t"thoff by the defendant to secure his vote for the central traction bill. In answer to questions put by Circuit Attorney Foik, Uthoff testified that while a member of the city council in 1S98. when the north end south traction bills were pending, Robert M. Snyder called on him at his residence, bavins been taken there by Louis Dieckmann by appointment. TTthofc continued: "I told him I had been approached and offered SSO.000 for my vote. 'I will get that amount and send it by Dieck rnann,' said Snyder to me. "Now I never said then, nor have I ever said that I would .vote for the measure." The witness told of a package brought to his house the next day by Dieck mann and of his secend meeting with Snyder. At that meetinff Snyder said: " 'Uthoff, if you don't vote for that bill I am a ruined man.' "I told Snyder," continued the wit ness, answering Mr. Folk, "that he should come to my house and gt that package back, that I did not want it." "Did he do as you requested?" "Yes. he came the next day," said the witness, "and opened the package which contained currency, 25 checks of $1,000 denomination and the balance in secur ities and papers. SnydA- took the con tents and deDarted." LIQUOR BUSINESS HAD. At Least That Is What Druggists Reports Indicate.
