Wisconsin, Mtnne ! sota. the Dakotas and some of the i mountain and coast states are exc-Uidod I from consideration because their negro i vote is too small to have much effect ! on elections.

The secession from the Republicans of the negro vote in New York would have defeated Roosevelt for governor in and also idell at the late election. Rut a complete reversal of the negro vote in Pennsylvania this year from Penny packer to Pattison would not have saved the Democratic candidate for governor. Of the old free states Pennsylvania has the greatest voting iopulation. tine curious fact is to be noted in he above tabulation. The ratio of negro vofis to population in all the far northern states is about one to three, whereas in the border anil southern states it is one to four and sometimes five. This shows that the negroes do not move their families north to any great extent. The young men go north to seek their fortunes or to take service in the families of the rich. Washington Cor.

B. and K. C. Line. Further particulars regarding the probable appointment of J. W. AVhile to the position of auditor of disburse ments of the Santa Fe to succeed the late I. S. Lauck have been given out at the general offices. Mr. White is to come here from Los Angeles, Cal., where he has had his headquarters as auditor of the Santa Fe coast lines. Mr. White is said to be just the man for the place on account of his being thoroughly familiar with the work. He was em ployed in the office of the auditor of disbursements for a good many years and at the time he left here to accept the position of auditor of the Santa Fe coast lines he was chief clerk to Mr. Lauck. It is stated that A. S. Jennings, now auditor of the Gulf. Colorado and San ta Fe railroad, is to succeed Mr. White as auditor of the Coast lines and J. K. Raxter, now auditor of the Gulf, Beau mont and Kansas City lines, is to suc ceed Jennings. There is a rumor being circulated at the general offices to the effect that C. J. Webb of Chicago is to be made audi tor of the G. R. & K. C. to succeed Mr. Raxter. Mr. Webb is well known in Topeka. He left the position of chief clerk to the division superintendent of the Santa Fe at this point to go to Chi cago where he is r.ow employed in the office of President Ripley. This was about two years ago. .Mr. "Webb is a prominent Mason and at the time he left Topeka was grand master of that lodge. WORTH 800,000 CASH. An Estimate on the Damage Done to Western Union Lines. I"p to date the Pennsylvania railroad company has cut down 6S0 miles or Western Union poles and 9S13 miles of iron wire in Pennsylvania and 24a miles of iron wire in New Jersey. All tins property destroyed was along the Penn sylvania system in Pennsylvania, and the West jersey and Seashore in New jersey. In no other state was any con siderable amount of poles or wire cut down. The Western Union values the prot.ertv destroved at $1,000,000. The: cash value is estimated at SS00.00O. Should the United States Supreme Court sustain the Western Union's ap peal from the United States Circut Court the Western Uuion will bring suit against the Pennsylvania for damaged. On the other hand, if the appeal of the Western Union is dismissed, the Penn sylvania will sue the Western Union to recover the expense of cutting down and removing the poles and wire. In 1P02 the Western Union had 196, 11.". miles of Doles and 1.02S.W4 miles of wire in operation. The property de stroyed is less than one-half per cent of the total mileage of poles and lesn than one per cent of the total mileag of wires. The Western Union is still operating in Pennsylvania along th-; highways and on private rights of way, but. it does no business at the Pennsyl vania railroad stations. AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT. Mexican Government Tells of Its Railroad Acquisition. Austin. Tex., June 11. The Mexican government has issued an official ex planation of its purchase of an interest in the National railroad of Mexico. This statement is in part as follows: "The government has arranged with bankets of New Y'ork for the purchase of 25:1.655 shares of the National railway company of Mexico, a fact which, taken in connection with the mode of organi zation of that company, and that the bankers undertake to procure the resig nation of four of the directors of the National railway company non-resident in Mexico, who will be replaced by per sons designated by the Mexican govern ment, will give the latter an unquestion ed control over the line, while at the same time the government. will continue to exercise control over the line in ques tion and the Interoceanic railway. In asmuch as the Interoceanic shares which it bought will become the property of I the National railway, and as the Mexi can government will have control in the management of the latter. It is plain that it will have a like control over both, or, in other words, over a system of railroads extending from the gulf of Mexico to the northern frontier of the republic." MANY NEW ENGINES.

NOT SO BAD AS FEARED. Yoakum Says Flood Damage to Frisco Is Exaggerated. St. Louis, Mo., June 11. R. F. Yoa kum, president of the St. Louis and San Farr.cisco road, in speaking of the flood damages in the southwest, said: "As we receive,additional reports from the west the amount of damage done bv the floods seems to grow less. Tnese I thing this x able. things -are generally exaggerated, and case is no exception. We are un- of course, to approximate our damage, but the sum total of it all will not be nearly so serious a factor in the annual report as seems to be expected by the public. "We began our troubles more than a month ago, when the Mississippi river washed out our tracks south of Mem phis. We thought we were through with it, and our men are now running the rights of way through that country unless the levees axe broken again be fore this statement is printed. We are hit at Kansas City, .and may be again at St. Louis. "In the matter of corn crops in the bottom lands, it is always worth while to remember that it is a good time to sell your ccrn when the water lies on the bottom lands in early summer. Only about 5 per cent of our territory is low lands, and there is plenty cf time to re plant that. Anyone who knows tiie way corn grows on iow lands that have been flooded will recognize the reason why I am not pessimistic over corn prospects in the Mississippi valley." HIS HEALTH RESTORED. C. O. Young, Santa Fe Fire Depart ment Chief, Returns from Vacation. The Albuquerque Journal-Democrat says: C. O. Young, superintendent of the pattern department at the shops, and chief of the Santa Fe Pacific hose company, has returned from a two months' vacation on the Pacific coast. Mr. Young was in very poor health when he went away, but the change and rest has completely restored him and he is quite his old genial self again. It has been a vacation to be remember- Led.

The formal commencement exercises at the Univer sity of Kansas Wednesday were delay ed by the lateness of the train on which Justice David J. Brewer of the United State supreme court arrived. It was at 11:15 o'clock when the procession of regents, faculty and seniors entered the hall, headed by Chancellor Strong and Justice Rrewer. The Tannhauser marcn was played by Prof. G. R. Penny at the organ, Prof. C. A. Preyer at the piano and Miss Bowersock on the vio lin as the graduates entered and was followed by an invocation by Rev. F. M. Bennett. Mrs. Lyon then sang, fol lowing which Mr. Brewer delivered the address on "The Triumph of Justice." Closing. Justice Brewer said: "Humanity has always dreamed dreams, and only when the dream of justice prevails will the ideal be at hand. The progress of the human race from the beginning by epochs shows that might, at the beginning, ruled the, earth. Human vision was limited to what man had the power to do, noi what we ought to do. In addition to the struggle between individuals came that between tribes and states, and might still ruled the world. The early history of the lace suggests that the ruling idea was might. Rut man grew in knowledge, began to have a wider conscience and -to re alise that there was a sense of right It was feeble at first and it interfered with his powers, but through all the feeling grew. When this sense first en tered then began a conflict with might. This conflict grew and will always be a factor. One outgrowth of this self-consciousness was that man could not be a proper judge over his own conduct in a controversy with another. This took form in two ways, an appeal to a di vine power and to human judgment. The latter was the introduction of the judge into the life of the world. At first these judges were the rulers of tribes, slates and nations. That mo ment the end of conflict between might and right grew nearer. "In early judicial history judgments were doled out as favors, but in spite of this has come a recognition that right is a higher mission than might. The judicial system is an outgrowth of right and justice. The judge has come to stay. He is recognized as a factor in all civilized life. With all the in heritance of a fine judicial system from England and in spite of the fact that its 'development has reached its highest point in this country, the judiciary of America is not perfect. All efforts are i-i vain unless there is a constant, po tent public opening, and in this country public sentiment makes no distinction of sex. As judges and lawyers Ave must be lifting up our ideals, because the re sponsibilities are greatest on these claws These two professions must keep in advance of all others. They mean more than bread and butter. Their ideals should be to make real tne things that are right. "To secure th's politics should be bar red from the bench. The judge should kv the e-uarantv of independence after his career has ended as well as while in active service. The bar is just irtont in this work as the hencn. i --.' . .1 c,fDt ns civilization is. MCaUlllUl doo t..i- it will crumble unless through it all runs the thread of equal and exact justice to each and everv person. But even then the triumph of justice will not be cum- rl"Peace and right must prevail between nations as well as within them. To that work the civilization of the twentieth centurv is pledged. This sense of right has le'en growing. But the pride of na tions has so far prevented the consum mation of such an end. A better day is dawning. The efforts to minimize the horrors of war are a move in that di rection. The work of the Red Cross and its recognition by every nation in the world is another. but ahead of all is the step toward arbitration that has grown more and more powerful within the last twenty years. This country has been foremost in this work and the national government has taken many steps in that direction. "While the good time coming may seem a long way off, yet the success o.. might over right has been notable for ages We must have the divine patience to understand the divine, mathematics of the proposition. There will be yet wars and our nation will not lie free from them, but the leaven of the right is working and will bring- about the re sults sought. The laurels of peace are greater than the laurels of war. but there should be-Jio disparagement of the heroic deeds of men of our country and the achievements of army and navy, and possihlv it is best to have a large navy and a strong standing army. Nineteen centuries ago the angels called 'Peace on Earth and Good Will to Men,' and while it may seem long, yet the time is coming, surely coming, when there will be ;ieace on earth." The address was followed by music and the conferring of degrees upon the "IS graduates of the various schools and departments as follows: Doctors of philosophy, 2; masters of arts. 19; bachelors of arts. 97: bachelors of law, 44- bachelors of science. 22: pharmaceu tical chemists. 19; bachelors of arts in law, 2: bachelors of music, of painting, 1; certificates bachelors medicine, 10. -Evatn-ivine- the commencement exer- cises the annual university dinner was served in the museum building.
