The European war cloud threatens to obscure the star of peace. The Red sea hasn't had so prominence In the dispatches Moses crossed it. much since Attain, people are being caused to "remember the Maine" by agitation concerning the raising of the wreck. It is said that the Populists are en deavoring to bring about the defeat of Roosevelt by announcing their inten tion of voting for him. Judge Parker may claim the right of "search and seizure" in connection with Tammany men visiting Esopus. They are supposed to be carrying knives.

Washington Post : There would be very few railroad accidents if train men and station employes paid as much attention to regular passenger trains as they do to the private car of the general manager. Russia says the British vessel seized by her in the Red sea. carried contra band of war. England says it didn't. John Bull has a way of backing up his assertions vcUh guns when he thinks he has the upper hand. In the matter of horsemanship there appears to be little room for an issue between the rival candidates for the presidency, but when it comes lo wimmlng the Ieniocrats clearly be lieve that they have their opponents at a disadvantage. Here is the list of candidates to he Voted for next November: Democratic. Farker and Davis: Republican. Rooso velt and Fairbanks;- Prohibitionist. Swallow and Carroll: Socialist, Debs and Hanford; Socialist-Labor, Corregan and Cox; Populist, Watson and Trib bles; Negro Liberty. Scott and Payne. Independent candidates may announce later. Mr. Folk, the terror of Missouri bood lers. has been nominated for governor, but those of his own party who are op rosed to him. and they are many, have succeeded in weighting down the ticket with two men from the class which the district attorney has been fighting. There was presented an opportunity for the young reformer to imitate Bryan and Parker and let it be known that he could not take the nom ination under such conditions, but he didn't do it. Not many men are big enough to pursue such a course. AX AUSTRALIAN BALLOT TEST. IFrom the N. Y. Commercial-Advertiser The Democratic hope that the thirteen electoral votes of Wisconsin may be lost by President Roosevelt is not based on a belief that the majority of the voters of Wisconsin prefer Judge Par ker. On the contrary, the Republicans assert and the Democratic leaders of Wisconsin concede that the actual Roosevelt majority in Wisconsin is from 50,000 to 100.000. Notwithstanding the divlson of the Wisconsin Republi cans Into two closely organized factions, each with Its state ticket, there would be no doubt concerning the national ticket were It not, as has been hereto fore explained in these columns, for a Wisconsin law which forbids a candi date's name appearing more than once on the official ballot. The two - Republican state conven tions of Wisconsin this year, both the one that nominated La Foliette and the one that nominated Cook, named the same set of presidential electors. It was assumed,- when ' these common nominations were made, that the list could be placed both under the "Half Dreed" and "Stalwart" designations. and that the two factions could fight their family quarrel to a finish without jopardlzng the electoral ticket. But scrutiny of the law showed that such double entry was illegal. There was a dead wall preventing effective fusion. Which faction had a right to claim the list of electors? If title were establish ed by one, would the other nominate another set of electors, with such a division of strength as to elect Demo cratic electors? Not a few robust Wis consin Republicans have been reduced to the verge of insanity by the intri cacy of the problem. The last proposal which has been made is the most novel of the series. Eleven of the thirteen electors nom inated by the two conventions having expressed a determination to go on the ticket under the LaFollette designa tion or nowhere, the suggestion is that the other two should Join them, and that the entire thirteen shall then ap pear'as the eleven demand, with no names of electors appearing on the "Stalwart" ticket an address by the state committee of the "Stalwarts" in structing the latter to ignore the circle at the head of the ticket, to vote for Cook in the square, and then to cross over to the other column and vote for the electors. It is claimed that under this arrangement the entire Republi can vote could be concentrated on one set of electors withcut either faction surrendering. Having captured eleven of the thirteen electors, the La Foliette faction asserts the right to place the names in its column. The difficulty of the plan is, of course, the possibility that the intelligent voter will arrive at the polling booths ignorant as to the arrangement and at once proceed to muddle things. It is to be recalled at one election In New York, under the Australian system, no less than 120,000 ballots were thrown out as de fective. J ATHAWK ER JOTS.

Even when it's harder to be bad than good there is more fun in it. A man considers himself a Kenius when he writes poetry that he can t sell for money. There is nothing like the way a widow can learn things again as quick as she , gets married. After a man has run for office, when you shake hands with him he hole's one of his over his watch pocket. It's Just as well to let a woman have her full say in ar? argument or she will wake you up in the middle of the night to tell you another reason she has just thought of. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. IFrom the Philadelphia Record. J The rolling stone never makes much of aan uphill tight. The street piano is always operated by a, musical cranit. A woman's stationerv doesn't alwavs inaicaie ner station in lire. A woman treasures her love letters as man does his due bills. If you are eoinft to do a man at all. be sure you ao nim good. Those who fleht and awav thev co. mav live to say: "I told you so," Honesty is the best policy, but the man who is right may often be left. The auto is a perverse beast. It never breaks down within walking distance of nome. If every cloud has a silver lining It may trount for the fact that a lot of us are always up in the air.

"Sir." said the landlord of the summer hotel to a new arrival, who looked like a chronic kicker, "let me say to you before you are assigned a room that we have mosquitoes here." "I presume so," was the careless reply. "And there is no fishing." "I don't want any." "And you are quite certain to get ma laria." "I can cure that with quinine.' "Sir." continued the landlord, "there are no gorgeous sunsets." "Well?" "No hunting, no bathing, no sailing." "That suits me down to the ground." "One thing more, sir, I do not claim to set a good table." "I was in hopes you didn't, as I am a dyspeptic. As for the rest of the draw backs. I've just got away from my wife for two weeks for the first time in ten years and nothing here can make me kick." A Wonderful Jewel. The most extraordinary pearl or, rather, cluster of pearls known as "the Southern Cross.' 'is owned by a syndi cate of Australian gentlemen, who val ue it at Jo00,000. So far as is known, it occupies an absolutely unique position. It consists of nine pearls, naturally grown together in so regular a manner as to form a perfect Latin cross. The pearl was discovered by a pearl fisher at Roebourne. West Australia. The first owner regarded it with so much super stition that he buried It; but it was discovered in 1874, and five years later was placed on -exhibition in Australia. Detroit News-Tribune. The Intellectual Woman. An intellectual woman is an abnormal ity: she has the brain of a man in the body of a woman. Intellect in woman has so dazzled us by Its brilliance that we have failed to recognize it as a disease, like genius In a man. and the pearl in an ovster. But. nevertheless, it is a disease, and must inevitably b the death of a race In which it Is fostered. Sydney Tel egraph. ' CANDIDATES ARE NOTIFIED.

GORMAN WON'T HAVE IT His Decision Regarding the Chairman ship Is Unalterable. Washington, July 22. Senator Gor man was in the city today and had his attention called to a statement purport ing to have been made by a member of the Democratic national commute to the effect that there is still a possi bility that he mij.it consent to accept the chairmansnip. Mr. Gorman stated he had frankly in formed all who had made such a oug- gestion that it would be impossible for him to undertake the labors incident to that position and that he now desired to add that no conditions will arise which would induce him to change that determination. He will, however, be very glad to render all the service in his power to those who may be selected to take charge of the campaign which he believes will be crowned with suc cess. , . TROOPS READY.

The fed eral troops have been asked for and are being held in readiness to be sent here pending a promise by the gamb lers that the grafters shall leave the city today. The latter have been given until 4 p. m. to leave town. Last night the mayor in a signed statement notified Superintendent Mc Phaul. of the government registration office, that he was unable to cope with the situation and requested that troops be called for. Two hours later the request was withdrawn. At midnight the request was renewed by the city authorities. Today a meeting, of citi zens was held and Mn McPhaul issued an ultimatum.

The management of the Topeka base ball team set to work this morning to secure the release of Abbott from Pitts burg for the purpose of bringing him here and making him field manager and captain.:- He Is an "old head" and playing a great game both in fielding and hitting at the present time. In the struggle to get the Saints on their pedis extremis, Abbott, once fired by Topeka, is looked to for resurrection. The players all like him and ask for his return. They say that they can and will play good ball under his direction. At Pittsburg he has had fair success, although little judgment can be taken of his work there, because of the dis organized condition of the team under its change of management, which oc curred Just about the time nt which lie had the team playing together. The question then comes. What will be done with Schrant? Then an effort is being made to get Roy Bevis. Com munication was established with him this morning by one of the fans in tiis city. He says he can get away from Sedalla and says he wants to come back to Topeka. Some more changes would follow if Abbott takes holi, but to conjecture about them would be mere idle gossip. THEY WANT TO KNOW. American Ship Owners Worried by tlie Malacca Incident. Washington.' July 22. The Pacific Mail Steamship company has communi cated to the state department its ap prehension as to the safety of some its cargoes in ships plying between the Pacific coast and Chinese and Japanese ports on account of the seizure of the Malacca and the condemnation by a prize court of the British Allenton. The company's agents ask what they may expect and tor a definition of contra band of war liable to seizure.No answer has as yet been returned, because the whole subject is under very careful in vestigation by the legal officers of the department and its commercial Import ance may demand the issue of a formal notice from the government to the American marine of its rights and privileges and of the limitations im posed by the war upon its trade opera tions. STUBBS SHORN OF POWER. Now He Couldn't Appoint Executive Committee If He Wanted To. The report has been published that Chairman Stubbs has refused to ap point an executive committee, and the story has caused Mr. Stubbs some em barrassment. It is quite true that he has not found an executive committee necessary in his business, and he had not appointed one up to the time the Republican state committee met last night. Therefore the committee relieved him of further embarrassment by re scinding its former action authorizing him to appoint the committee. R. N. Allen made the motion to ie- scind. He said the mover of the orig inal motion was willing to have it re scinded, as an executive committee is unnecessary. J. Dolley seconded the motion to rescind. He was the mover of the original motion. The motion was passed and no questions asked. Mr. Stubbs now luur. no authority to ap point an execurtv-eommittee.- THIS IS TllHlvERy LATEST. H. Forbes Wants Ball Flayers Ar rested for Working on Sunday. P. H. Forbes has suggested to County Attorney Hungate- that he prosecute the Topeka Salntfor working on Sun day if they play ball next Sunday. Mr. Forbes thinks that if the Saints play ball they will be working. That Is a question for discussion whether they play or whether they work. If Mr. Forbes' idea is carried out then the street car company will have to stop running on Sunday, the gas com pany and the Topeka ater company and the electric light plants will have to stop, perhaps, and even the ministers who have not already gone away on summer vacations will have to cease preaching. That Is the argument of the Sunday baseball enthusiast. Coun ty Attorney Hungate has announced that he will issue a complaint for the arrest of the players if any one re quests it. Mr. Forbes declined to swear to a complaint. IRELAND SUCCESSFUL Calls Out Santa Fe Apprentices at Ottawa Shops. Ottawa. Kan.. Julv 22.

Justice David J. Brewer of the supreme court of the United States said that the best way to reach the young men is to send the voung women after them: that had been a potent factor in catching the elusive man, and that they were as strong now as they ever were. He told the story of the religious man who took his Bible in one hand and his little son bv the other and went for a walk and in struction. They came upon a bevy of beautiful young girls playing in the for est and the boy asked what they were. "Geese, my son," replied the father. "Oh, eaten me one, father; catch me one," cried the boy. He illustrated the plan of getting Chris tions in droves by a story to the effect that an Ohio regiment and an Indiana, regiment were encamped near each other during the civil war, and that religion struck the former, during which time fortv of the soldiers were baptized. "Order 80 men baptized!" commanded the colonel of the Indiana regiment: "no blamed Ohio regiment shall have more Christians than Indiana.'- Baltimore Herald. High Rate of Wind.

City Physician Storrs Tried Hard to Keep Facts From Public. City Physician Storrs has succeeded in secreting another patient In the pest house without anybody - knowing it. The man's name is Albert Anderson, an employe at Marple's livery barn in North Topeka, who was taken to rjje hospital Monday night, with what is said to be smallpox. Dr. Storrs did not know of the exist ence of the case until three days after the man was sick and broken out. Then he made a frantic effort to quarantine all the people who were rooming on the second floor of the Citizens' bank building, at Kansas avenue and Norris streets, but he was too late. Every last one of them had fled when they heard what was coming, and so far as known, the city physician failed to get any of them in quarantine. Today there is nothing on the second floor of the building but a lot of vacant rooms, a good deal of dirt, a strong smell of formaldehyde and a big red smallpox card on the floor at the west end of the hall. 1 Dr. Storrs prides himself on the fact that he can keep the public from know ing anything about the spread of con tagious diseases in Topeka. Every scrap of information reeardlng smallpox Is has blocked every avenue he could by has blocked avery avenue he could by which news of his "policy" might get to the public through the newspapers. Mayor Bererundthal seems to sustain him In this new and original method of running the health department, but Mayor Bergundthal does a lot of queer things. Albert Anderson, which is the name of the man now in the pest house, has been in Topeka for several years. His home was Menoken. but he came down here and has worked at the Marple livery barn most of the time. The Mar ple barn is on Norris street, Just west of Kansas avenue. Anderson rented a room on the sec ond floor of the Citizens' bank. The second floor of this building is divided into about 15 rooms, with a long hall connecting them. Anderson had the west room. Most of the other rooms were occupied by young men, of about Anderson's age. It is said that when the roomers became aware that Ander son was sick, they did not at first real ize what was the matter with him. When it was discovered that he had smallpox, they kept quiet about it, for fear the health department would quarantine the whole building. Just west of the building lives Mrs. Battles, the mother of Otho Battles, the postofllce man who was hurt not long ago. On Sunday, some of the Battles family saw Anderson through a window, and discovered that he was broken out with some eruptive disease. Thev suspected that it was smallpox, and the next day, Mrs. Battles her self called at the office of the health department and notified the officials. This led to an Investigation and the discovery that Anderson was sick. Anderson was taken from his room and conveyed to the pest house at the dead of night following the disclosure. This was done to avoid having people around to watch the performance. He was loaded into the pest house ambu lance, and given a midnight ride of 3 miles to the hospital south of town. An officer was detailed to go to the building and put all the other roomers under quarantine. When he went to execute this order, they had all left, and had taken their furniture with them. The rooms were as bare and deserted as a haunted garret. So there was nothing to do but fumigate the rooms which Anderson had occupied, and trust the rest to luck. Something seems to have happened to the supply of furniture at the pest house. It was fully furnished once. but in order to accommodate Ander son, a new bed had to be purchased. The bed was taken out to the pest house by one of the sanitary officers, who refused to give any information about the matter, but referred all in quiries to City Physician Storrs. DEATHS AND FUNERALS. The body of C. F. Calvin, of this city, who met death in a fire at Buf falo, N. Y.. was brought to Topeka this morning by his brother, Waldo Calvin. The funeral wil be held from the home of his parents at 307 Polk street on Saturday at 2 p. m. Carroll CofFman, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. G. Coffman, aged one year, died on Wednesday at 4 p. m.

Terrifying and Mystifying; Experience of Sothern's Visitor. Now and then E. H. Sothern admits visitors to his dressing room. He did so in Cincinnati, where he entertained a somewhat nervous and excitable gentle man during his moments "oft stage." In the midst of one of their arguments, during which the visitor expostulated vol ubly, there entered the room a dignified and decorous colored man, who ad vanced to the center, saying, in an earn est monotone: "Have, you no fear of God?" and mys teriously departed as he came. . Mr. Sothern's guest was greatly dum founded, but was too well bred to ask questions. Resuming his argument, he again grew heated in his remarks, and again the colored man quietly and mys teriously entered, and, clearing his voice, declared : "If you were the devil himself, do you think you could make me like you?" To the guest's surprise, the actor took the interruption as a matter of course, so Sothern's visitor, in a dazed manner, continued his argument, only to be inter rupted again and again by the same col ored intruder, this time with the remark: "I know you know, and God knows 1 pity you." Mr. Sothern's guest was now too sur prised to talk. He sat in a collapsed con dition until the same man had entered three separate times, and in an expres sionless voice said: "I am as changeless as the sun. I will carry my soul pure to heaven." "You are the strange woman." "You shall be as beautiful as I am and as happy." This last remark was too much for the man's nerves. He was barely able to gasp. sothern, wnat toe aoes tnis mean Is this a joke or an insane asylum? Who Lj this fellow?" "That," said the actor, "that is simply my dresser, Lewis.
