Lee, the present vice grand master. . - ... Morrissey. during his administration, built up the Brotherhood from a strup, Rl!nK membership of 12.000 To 102;000 and has earned the reputation of being one of the most broad-minded labor leaders in the country. The new American Railroad : Em ployes' and Investors' association is said to have the backing of half a dozen of the largest railroad corpora tions of the country. Morrissey's sal ary is said to be $15,000 a year. "The new organization is not to be used for political purposes." Morrissey says. "It Is not to take part in con troversies between railroad officials a.nd employes, either. "It is to provide for more active co operation between employes and in vestors. Their interests are the same. Some of its objects are: "To encourage friendly public feeling toward the railroads; to keep watch of railroad legislation, and to secure fair returns to capital and labor. "Investors and employes are to have equal voice. There is need of co-operation between them. They may quarrel as to the relative portions of the earn ing due them. But they cannot quar rel in their resistance to the unjust re ducing of rates and other limitations which in the end hurt employes more than investors. " 'Hit the railroads and hurt the rich' is the cry. And every time the rail roads are hit. 1.500,000 railroad employes- are hit." . . . - W. G. Lee, for years vice grand mas ter "of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, who has succeeded P. H. Morrissey as grand master, has come up from the bottom. He was a brake man SO years ago. Lee began his railroad career on the Atchison. Topeka & Santa Fe at Em poria, Kan., in 1879. He was a brake man and switchman on various roads In the southwest until 1S91. when he became a freight conductor on the Union Pacific. In 1905 he was elected vice grand master of the trainmen at the Galesburg convention of the order, of which he had been a member since 1S90. 1 The new grand master has almost as jrreat a reputation as a union leader as Morrissey. pay a substantial dividend upon the stock of the new Hill road. In the eleven states, and territories west of the Rockies there is now an nually a S'urplua production of about 65.000,000 bushels of . wheat. This is grown largely in the states of Idaho, Washington. Oregon and California. Of this surplus 35,000,000 bushels finds an exit through the Pacific coast port. Of this amount. 20,000,000 bushels goes out of the country by way of the Puget Sound, and James J. Hill se cures the lion's share of it. Of the balance going out .through the Paci fic ports, 13,000,000 bushels seeks the gateway furnished by the Oregon ports and 2,000,000 bushels goes by the gateway of San Francisco. This leaves 30,000,000 bushels to seek an outlet by the Gulf ports of the east coast of South America and for some of the European coasts. All of the wheat has been escaping Mr. Hill, although it comes largely from what is regarded as Hill terri tory. He could not control the ship ments, however, not having a line south of Denver, and also because of being unable to make his own through rates to the Gulf. Harriman. with his Union Pacific, his Oregon Short Line, his San Pedro Line and his Southern Pacific, has been gathering this wheat and taking it to the Gulf ports. KIDLVG IX GLASS CAGE.

"The Toy maker's Dream." a light musical opera, was pla.v?d a; the Grand last night. The vacillating flow of gas kept the heat at a minimum temperature, and both audience and players suffered alike. The stage was probab'y colder than the house. Down in one of the little dressing rooms a little sras heater served to keeD the performers warm, durimr the intervals between their parts. On the stage the players hurried through -their parts, the cold adding zest and ginger to the occasion. The nlav itself wasn't a classic, but was as good as one would expect in a popular priced ODera. and those who were there got their money's worth. There wasn't a good singer in the cast, but there were none who could be classified as poor ones. It was a mediocre affair from a musical angle as well as from a dramatic stand point. The company - was fair. Interest in the plav centered in William Cushman. who carried the principal role. . As an overgrown, simple minded country youth, he played his part acceptably. Some dav he may be heard from in higher company. The chorus carried some fair singers, butastosizeand symmetry of appearance, was nrlsmated. There .were some physi cal heavyweight as well as one or two w ho might be called "baby dolls." The gas has. been taken out . of the heater and coal will be used in the opera house furnace hereafter Iwiaca it trill be comfortable. .. . - Four new state senators are in the city today, coming- iu early to get set tled for the session. J. T. Reed of Smith Center, T. M. Potter of Pea body, A. F. Smith of Cowley county and H. W. Avery of Clay county. Sen ator Reed is from the short grass country, that home of astute and practiced statesmen, but he had little to say for publication at this time. Contrary to expectations the Smith county, man will not introduce the bill incorporating the provisions of the Torrens land law, but will support such a measure. Senators Potter, Smith and Avery will not commit themselves at this time beyond favor ing the carrying out of all party pledges made during the last cam paign. If the protestations of the members-elect who have so far visited the capital city count for anything the political temple of the square dealers, for which plans and blue prints were prepared last summer, will be built quickly this winter without a jar or sound of discord, even as the Jews built the temple of Solomon many years ago. But then, is there not a saying among certain wise people that where all agree beforehand, out of this will arise a greater discord? There is also a prophecy that Solomon's temple will not be rebuilt until the roll is called up yonder; how then, can Stubbs hope to get re sults on his temple from Dolley's roll call here in Topeka? I "W. M. Kinneeon of Garden City, ex-! representative of Finney county and a western Kansas boomer, will spend the balance of the winter In the Hawaiian islands. Wlth the ther mometer nailed down to the zero mark there are other Kansans who would like to Join the Garden City booster. " The farmers of Marshall county at a mass meeting held in Marysville re cently, relieved their minds of all care and trouble by passing the following set of resolutions: Resolved. That the legislature em power our present board of railroad commissioners to effect a true physical valuation of all railroads' in the state for the purpose of arriving at a true basis for rates and fares and all pur poses of taxation. Such rates to be assessed by the local assessor in each township. Second All officers, in any man ner connected with assessment and taxation, be elected direct by the peo pie. Third We demand that the office of county tax assessor be abolished and that the duties of such office be performed y tne county commis sioners. Fourth We demand that all bank stock be assessed at its true market value. Fifth That the books and records of all banks be open to the township assessor for the purpose or assess ment and taxation. Sixth We demand that a legal limit be placed on all tax levies so that the amount of money raised will not be in excess of the actual needs of the people. Seventh we demand tne uncon ditional repeat of the Barnes law. Eighth We demand that our county commissioners be required to advertise for bids and let to the low est responsible bidder all county print ing and bridges. John G. Ellenbecker acted as cnair- man and James H. Nelson as secretary of this meeting. Lieutenant Governor Fitzgerald has returned to Topeka to remain until the legislature gets down to work. He has made public the names of the members of the judiciary committee of the next senate as follows: Judge Francis Price, Clark county: J. H. Stavely, Osage county; S. M. Brewster, Doniphan county: H. E. Ganse, Coffey county; J. T. Reed, Smith county; Clad Hamilton, Shawnee county; J. D. Meyers, Jackson county; Fred Robertson, Cheyenne county. . . There are many people who will be of the opinion of Representative O. L. Lennon of Ness county who believes that the circulating of petitions for primary nominations is a nuisance and should be done away with. Mr. Lennon, in speaking of the matter, gave his opinion as follows: T believe that an amendment should be passed that will do away with this petition. " To take the place of it the law should provide that every man who wants to be a candidate for an office should pay a certain fee. As I see it, the primary is a party affair under state auspices, so I do not see why this can't be done. The fees could be fixed as a certain per cent of the salary of the office for which the man becomes a candidate or a certain amount for any class of offices. 1 believe and I know Piles Quickly Cured at Home Instant Relief, Permanent Cure Trial ' Package Mailed Free to All in Plain, Wrapper.

News from Lawrence is of esnecial interest to the politicians just now for it is there that Stubbs, the silent one sits, and with him his sphinx-like secretary John Dawson. Many of the faithful are making the pilgrimmage to the college town. They enter the gates like Gen. Foy marched to Waterloo, all of them without fear and many without hone. The following narrative of the dav'M do ings at the Stubbs mansion was writ ten by a Lawrence newspaper man on the spot and may be considered as au thentic as a Marconi wireless: Lieutenant Governor Fitzgerald and Warden McClaughery were guests at the W. R. Stubbs home yesterday. Sen ator Joe Dolley of Maple Hill, and sla ted for the speakership, is expected as a Lawrence visitor today. Thus goes the list of distinguished arrivals to see the next Kansas governor. All week the Stubbs mansion on Windmill hill will continue to be the mecca for the poli- iiraaiis ana statesmen rrom over the state. Then next week the political giory win oegm to rade from Lawrence, and Topeka, with the arrival of the gov ernor-elect, become the center of inter est. - Mr. Stubbs is grinding away now ev ery day on his message. He has most of his ideas already outlined and is rapidly getting them down on paper reaay to send the document to the legis lature. John Dawson, assistant attor ney general and Mr. Stubbs' political private secretary, will be here practi cally a week, to work on- the. message. Mr. Dawson, with acute legal acumen will watch for all -the technical points in tne forthcoming message to the law makers of Kansas. - Mr. Stubbs is taking his time about the message. He does not seem to- be the least worried over the near ' ap proach of the legislature with his -valuable document unfinished, and says: "Can't tell Just when I'll get through, but it's coming!" He has plenty of time to see all the visitors and go over points they wished to discuss, yet every day he manages to get his message a little nearer comple tion. To make his message touch upon every important question that will con front the legislature this winter! "and show what the people want, is the, gov ernor-elect s ideal in his first message and he is striving hard to make his message a memorable one. Those who are familiar, say the message will be a record or its kind. The Stubbs family are already begin ning to think of their removal to To peka. The children do not want to go and the family will not firmly establish themselves in the governor s mansion for some time after his inaugural, al though with the legislature in session Mr. Stubbs will be in Topeka most of the time. One of Mr. Stubbs old acquaintaces timidly asked him the other day if he intended to move the flowers that bloom in his conservatory, to the Topeka man sion, to take the place of the ones Hoch would take away, or permit them to re main at his Lawrence home. He said that while the task of moving was a very perplexing one, all the details, had not yet been arranged. Xew Charters Granted.
