Having been a practitioner of law for many years, he Is against strong-arm methods and mob rule, preferring argument to as sault and battery. The judge is chair man of the house judiciary committee, and therefore has more or less experi ence with the axe, but he handles the instrument with such grace that it is almost a pleasure to a bill to be de capitated. Judge Buckman'3 activity in the house is not centered upon some pet measure of his own, but he takes a general interest m everytning Derore the body, and his advice is sougnt ire quently. by the shot as they failed to penetrate into his toay. , Thi nM Kir tho ipfmidant inoT cates that the life of a farmer who Uve near a city and on an electric line 01 rail road Is hardly worth living.

Judge Buckman Is a quiet, peace able man, but there is a limit to every thing, "even his patience. That is why this alleged cartoon is published on Saturday, so that the judge will have Sunday in which to cool off before he has an opportunity of meeting the car toonist "Hot words were shed" during the closing scenes of the Yeager-Aikman contest case in the senate last evening, and the attorneys were sandbagging each other in lively style with hints of dark jobbery. A lot off the senators thought it would be establishing a bad precedent to take a hand in the case, as no man would be safe from "an noyance" when elected by a small margin. As "margins" are becoming thinner each year, there is much logic in this guess. On the other hand, ap pears the strange coincidence. The person who was being "annoyed" be longed to the majority, causing a com plication with the conscience of some of the thin-skinned members. The funeral of the contest case was well attended, both by sextons and mourners but the sextons were in the majority. J. J. Keraus, of WaKeeney, Is one of the representatives who -see the funny side. There are plenty of talking Demo crats in the house, and it is not necessary for him to injure his lungs in shouting forth the doctrine of Jefferson and Ben Tillman. He comes from the county which furnished that great hoax, the Trego Gold Shale, and perhaps he can see "shale value" in the house. Oratory does not annoy him, as the wind blows with both frequence and vigor in his country, and he is used to it, but when some one makes an unusually raw break, the shade New York, Feb. 6. Each bearing a marriage certificate, four women appeared at a local undertaking es tablishment to claim the body of W, S. King, who was a well known figure in the Tenderloin district. He died Wednesday at St. Joseph's hospital and although the four supposed wives have since turned up it was the gen eral belief, among his friends until yesterday that he was a bachelor. Three of the "Mra. Kings" viewed the body, having arrived at the undertak ing establishment within a few min utes of each other. A hysterical scene ensued and each woman was positive In her assertion that the body before them was that of her husband. The third woman De- came so excited when she was inform ed that two' other Women had already claimed the body, that the undertak er at last requested all three to leave the place. They had scarcely depart ed when the fourth woman came and another scene was enacted. The un dertaker was In a quandary for a while, but finally decided to recog nize only the first Mrs. King. The funeral of the much-claimed husband will be held today. IS DEAD AT 105. Man Wlio Has Voted for Every Re publican President. New York, Feb. 6. There is dead in this city at the age of 105 years a man wno. naa voted for every Repub lican presidential candidate since be first voted for Lincoln In 1864. He was Simon Harris, a peddler, and was Dorn in Kussia, The old man's death was hastened by the reading of the death of a warm friend. Rabbi Adolph M. Radin, who died on Thursday. He arose late and after buying a newspa per, sat down in the kitchen at his home, then after glancing at the pa per, fell back unconscious in . his chair. He died soon afterwards. In his younger days Harris walked across the continent peddling hia wares and last autumn he gained no toriety by hurrying back from his third visit to Jerusalem in order to register in time to vote for Taft. JUST SMILE AND SMILE. Adilce Given to Women by a Suffragist Leader. Chicago. Feb. 6. The awarding of the $100 prize for the best suffragist "war song" to Louis J. Block, a bach elor, is said to be riart of a general plan among the women suffragists to Interest the men. Some time ago Mrs. Catharine Waugh McCulloch advised the women to wear their best dresses and "never make a disturbance, but just smile and smile." Club women : are - taken pains -to count up the total number of winners in the "place" contest and they are careful to mention that more of their own sex are included in it than men.

It seemed to J. A. Stone, a civil war veteran, of Kemp, Tex., that a plot ex isted between a desperate lung trouble and the grave to cause his death. "I contract ed a stubborn cold," he writes, "that de veloped a cough that stuck to me, in spite . of all remedies, for years. My weight ran down to 130 pounds. Then I began to use Dr. King's New Discovery, which re stored my health completely. I now weigh 17S pounds." For severe Colds, obstinate Coughs.

Keraus of Trego. of a grin crawls around the edge of his moustache and covers his face. He is not an extensive talker, realizing the vast dif ference between golden silence and "shale" talk, but pays strict attention to proceedings and appears to know how to vote right up to date. Keraus is a person of well-fed appear ance and substantial bulk, with a nice lit tle smooth spot on top of his head and a genial disposition. He occupies one of the 16-bone chairs near the northeast corner of the house. Every few years the house gets the idea that because it has more members, it is of more importance than the senate. A hunch of this sort always leads to grief, for the house. The senate takes a day oft to spank the over-grown brother, and then resumes the even tenor of its way. It was ever thus. Just as a barking dog gets kicked In the slats, the house gets It. The senate admits that it is the boss of the situation, also that It is the safety valve and governor of the legislative en gine, which keep3 the concern from run ning away or blowing up. Meanwhile the house members continue to borrow money frona the banker senators. FARMER MUST PAY. Jury Awards $600 Verdict Against 11. Constable for Shooting at Boys. A jury in the district court has awarded Bradford Fritz a verdict of J600 against Richard Constable, a well known Shawnee County farmer who lives near Vlnewood park. Constable has been greatly an noyed by hunters trespassing on his farm and about the first of November a year ago discovered the plaintiff with some other boys on his propertv and fired a shotgun into the air to frig'hten them, he says. It seems that some of the shot struck the Fritz boy and a suit for S1.000 damages was commenced against Mr. Constable with the result above stated. According to the story told by the boy to whom the JtjOO verdict was awarded he was, not hurt BOOK FIRM WANTS HIM. Chicago School Superintendent Offer ed Bis Increase In Salary. Chicago, Feb. 6. It is reported that the trip to Boston of Edwin G. Cooley, Chicago's superintendent of schools, was caused by an offer of a remunerative position with a pub lishing company. Mr. Cooley left here last Monday, going first to New York. There he was met by repre sentatives of the company and after ward sent to Boston, where the book concern has its general offices. The offer is said to exceed by sev eral thousand dollars Mr. Cooley's present salary of $10,000 a year. It is not known that he has accented it. NO LIMIT ON GUNS. Alabama Law Regarding Weapons Declared Vnconstitutional. Montgomery, Ala.. Feb. 6.

IT HAS GIVEJf NOTICE That It Will Take Up the Case February 17. Decision Will Form a Precedent for Future Action. I Tiie G itomikd! Hog SAW HIS SHADOW TUESDAY If you're superstitious you had better lay in a supply of COA Chicago, Feb. . "One of the bitter est fights," says the Record-Herald to day in a news artlcle,"between the Har riman and Hill lines over passenger business to the Pacific Northwest is to be settled by the Interstate -commerce commission. That body has given notice that on February 17 it will begin an investigation on its own mo tion at Chicago with .a view to deter mining the right of the Northern Pa cific to close the Portland gateway to through business over the Harriman roads. Incidentally the case will go lar toward determining the right of the commission to order through, routes and compel railroads to join in through tar iffs and therefore the right ol a travel er to buy. a through ticket over any two or more lines which reach his destination. "In the present case the Northern Pacific has always refused to Join tne Harriman lines in a through rate to Seattle by the wav of Portland. After the passage of the Hepburn act me Harriman lines filed a through tariff under the theory that the general con currence of the Northern Facinc in their tariffs covered the Portland situ ation. The commission ordered this tariff taken out upon the ruling that each tariff should be accompanied with concurrence of the connecting line, which was lacking in this case. Then the Harriman lines Hied a tar-, iff which made the same rates irom Chicago to Portland as are maintain ed by the Hill lines from Chicago to Seattle and incorporated a provision to tvio fffft that anv nassenger could, by aDolying to the conductor on the Ore-1. gon Railroad iavigaiion otuiuj" .1 - .. i ri (1 trln from Port- ' 11 J 1IT , DCCUIC " l o.ui, v. land to Seattle. This move was countered Dy Burlington, which sent a representative to the commission to ask if it .would be allowed to file such a tariff from St. Louis to Portland with a.rree siae inp to Seattle.
