Emerson, late Prohibition candidate for governor of Kansas, haa accepted a position as lecturer for the Prohibition national committee anil will leave Topeka Saturday with his family and goods for Bethany, a suburb of Lincoln, Neb., where his wife and chil dren will remain during the winter while he is touring the country. His title will be national lecturer and wrn ww$ Rev. F. W. Emerson, Recent Prohibition Candidate for Governor, Who Will Leave Kansas. organizer: and the duties which he will jci form will be to lecture at joints arranged beforehand by the national committee and after each lecture he will organize a local alliance. His headquar ters will be at lulS Manhattan building, Chicago. "I shall take my family to Lincoln where my wife's relatives live," said he. and then I go east to take up the work of national lecturer and organizer. Thorp are about six or seven of these lecturers and organizers being put out hv the national committee, but in the nurse of time the number will be in creased to fifteen or twenty. The plan is to keep up this campaign continuous- iv and to strengthen ourselves all the time. My dates already are being fixed up by the committee and I plan to spend the winter in Indiana, Ohio, Pennsyl vania and other states where Chairman Oliver V. Stewart sends me. Later in the season I expect to be sent west to thf Pacific coast. 'We are going to keen up this ngnt. I feel that the prohibition question is one that must be taken un and solved the same as the tariff or anv other great proposition. I think, too, that the matter is being brought to a head, l do not feel sore, of course, at defeat in this election, but I received I think up wards of 15.000 votes which I expected. The indications in Kansas are, it seems to mc, that the matter of law enforce, ment is to be brought up until it will be settled right. There is only one way to get at this thing, however, and tha is to attack it from a notional stand point. The doctrine of states' rights was exploded long ago and the correct way to reach the thing is through the government." "Will you discuss the result insShaw nee county?" "Yes. I will say something about the campaign in Shawnee county. "Certainly I should have liked to see Stahl and Stebbins elected, but in my opinion their defeat was due to those who were with them. They were sup ported by excellent people, but I want to tell you it was the inconsislencr of the thing that put people against them. The idea of people refusing to support two candidates on a ticket when all of the other candidates stand on the same platform as those to whom they object, seems absurd to me. Why should a man bolt a part of a ticket when he knows that the rest of it has been nominated upon the earne platform as those whom he has rejected? So I say again it was inconsistency which caused the defeat of the Independents in this county. I do not believe as Dr. Mc Farland said that the signifieance of the defeat of the Independents is thft the Topeka people want the saloons, but that they saw this inconsistency and re fused to be led off by it. "In iny orinion, too, they made a-5 mistake in holding a prayer meeting ail .day when they could have done much to influence the election in favor of their candidates, if they I'.ad only got out and worked. The ladies could not vote at the election, but they could have gone out and gotten men to vote. Of course I believe in prayer, but you must get out and work too. 'God helps those that help themselves' is an old saying but true." Mr. Emerson here illustrated his point by telling the story of an old Scotch man who. with a young seaman was caught out in a storm on the water, in a boat. The younger man wanted to use some other means besides that of the oars in seeking safety; but the Scotchman insisted that the only way was to "pull." "Now there is another thing I condemn," Mr. Emerron continued. "That is this: While I like Dr. McFarland very much. I think be makes a great mistake in flay ing Mr. Parker and the city administra tion of Topeka and at the same time al lowing Stanley and the state administra tion, greater sinners, to go untouched. Maybe Parker has not done just the right thing; but how little is he to blame when conpared with rjovernor Stanley and the utate administration. Everybody knows just what policy Mr. Stanley has pur sued as governor and it is upon that policy that he Is to stand as a candidate for X'nited States senator and in my opinion is going to be a strong factor." Lieut. Emmons' Report on Alaskan Boundary Monuments. Washington. Nov. 6. Lieut. George T. Emmons. U. S. N., retired, has made to the secretary of state his report upon the results of his investigation along the Alaskan boundary of certain stories which have found frequent repetition in late years to the effect that monuments have been discovered marking the real boundary line between Alaska and the British Northwest territory at a point many leagues further from the sea than the British have been willing to admit. Lieut. Emmons was selected for the work of incuiry because he was thor oughly familiar with the country in which the supposed boundary stones exist. He spent much of the past sum mer in the region, and now has reached a conclusion. The state department at this time will not make the report pub lic. The inquiry is regarded as but one chapter in a long series of investigations which have been going on for the past ten years under the auspices of the state department. It is said that the depart ment has investigated promptly every rumor bearing on the existence of boun dary monuments which presented the least appearance of plausibility. Lieut. Emmons declares that he has not breathed a word of the nature of his conclusions to any one except the offi cials here in Washington. Still it is re garded as a fair conjecture that he haa not found the stones reported to exist to be boundary monuments, else the state department would regard it as in cumbent on it to take steps to bring that fact to the attention of the British gov ernment with a view to securing rectifi cation of the present temporary boun dary. Instead of doing this, the report has been referred to ex-Secretary John W. Foster and Senator Fairbanks for their information. They are members of the high joint commission which was charged with the settlement of the Alaskan boundary question, among many other important matters. GIFT TO JOHNS HOPKINS. Income of $25,000 to Reward Foreign Medical Lecturers. Baltimore. Nov. 6. The trustees of Johns Hopkins university have accepted the offer of Dr. and Mrs. Christian A. Herter, of New York, to give $25,000 foi the foundation of a memorial lecture ship in the medical department, "de signed to promote a more intimate knowledge of the researches of foreign investigators in the realm of medical science." This end is to be secured by inviting each year some eminent worker in physiology or pathology to deliver one or more lectures at the university upon a subject with which he has been identified. The lecturer will receive as an honorarium the annual income of the endowment. D. Herter is a former student of Johns Hopkins. He has for several years held the professorship of patho logical chemistry in the university and Kellevue Hospital Medical college in New York. TAUT OF BRAIN GONE. Doctors Say California Boy Will Soon Be Able to Flay Again. San Francisco, Nov. 6. With part of his brain gone, George Parsons, an 8-year-old San Leandio boy. who was kicked in the head a week ago, still lives. The doctors who atterded him deem his case one of the most remarkable in medical science. At first they were hopeless of his recovery, because his skull was crushed and a large area of brain matter disturbed. They removed several spoonfuls of the destroyed brain and pieces of the skull that had lodged there, and closed the cavity with a sil ver plate. The operation was performed while the boy was perfectly conscious. He did not seem to feel the pain at all. He has been getting along so well since the treatment that the doctors say he will soon be at play with his friends. GOES OVER 10 DAI'S. The Vinewood-City Railway Case Is Postponed.

There's no telling how many more of his marches will be heard, for it's only a question of encores. "Stars and Stripes "orever" Is sure to be given.

This has been especially arranged because of the immense Hag dec oration recently placed on the Auditorium stage. The bandmen will stand and play "The Star Spangled Banner."

He was called back so much that one newspaper said he played everything is only one in Topeka. he knew. Much interest is aroused on the first appearance here of Estelle Xieb ling, the soprano who sang at the New York concerts of Kubelik last winter, and who has sung often in grand opera with the Grau forces. .
