PROPER APPAREL FOR UVMB 605 Kansas Avenue Kansas City, April 5. It is the ten dency of American women to live be yond their means and to imitate their neighbors, regardless of expense, ac cording to Rev. Mary Andrews, for merly pastor of the Universalist church here, and well known throughout the west as a leader in the affairs of wo men, who addressed the Council ol Clubs In Kansas City. Kan. 'The tendency among the women o, America to receive, accept and demand rather than to give and sacrifice, is growing to an alarming state,'' she said. "When a crisis of any kind enters into the American woman's life, she Is in capable of meeting it, because she is so used to receiving that she has no eelf confidence left. When she wants a thing done, she expects her husband or servants, her husband pays for. to do It, instead of going out and doing It herself as our grandmothers did. "A spirit of strife and unrest among women pervades all America. If she eees a thing that other women have, she wants something just like it or better. It makes no difference wheth er she can afford it or not." The speaker urged her hearers to be satisfied with their homes and their home life; to study to make the home brighter and more cheerful, for, she eaid, after all, the home is woman's real sphere. the stage for mahy years. The late Dan Daly was a brother, and the late Mrs. Margaret Daly Vokes was a sis ter. Another sister, is Mrs. Lucy Daly Ward, wife of "Hap" Ward. Captain Daly was 55 years old. TV0 DIE IN DUEL. Discharged Xcgro Dies After Shooting Four Men. MUCH HAND SHAKING Roosevelt's Schedule Does Xot Permit Speech Making. Maysville, Ky., April 5. Colonel Roosevelt said here that hereafter in his campaign he expected to empha size the argument which he used In his speech in Louisville yesterday that in his opinion the outcome of the pres ent campaign would be of vital impor tance in shaping the course of events or tne nation in the ruture. "I believe that I stated the issue more precisely than I have done be fore," said Colonel Roosevelt, "when I dated that unless this country Is a pretty good place for all of us it will not be a place for any of us. That is the important point I am trying to bring out in this campaign. This, and not the personal fortunes of any one man, is the real issue." As Colonel Roosevelt's private car was attached to a regular train during the first part of his day's run, the schedule did not permit of any extend ed stops, and the colonel made no at tempt to deliver speeches. At several stations he went out on the platform of his car and shook hands with as many of those in the crowds as could reach him. Captain "BUI" Daly Dies. Boston, Mass., April 5. Captain "William Daly, the last male member of the theatrical family of that name, is dead at his home in Revere. Captain "Bill" -was one of the four brothers who, with three sisters, were on the stage at the same time, said to have been unequaled by any other family. Captain Daly had been retired from Hoisington, Kan., April 5. Two men were killed and three others were in jured, one probably fatally, at the Mis souri Pacific railroad shops here Wed nesday night, when "Bud" Smith, a discharged negro employee, engaged in a revolver battle with shop employees. Mortally wounded. Smith was rescueii by officers from a crowd intent upon lynching him. . The dead are Smith and Charles Lovin, a watchman. C. W. Layman, a timekeeper, will die from his wounds. Smith was discharged Wednesday. Thursday night he apepared at the shops and announce he was "going to kill somebody." Watchman Lovin warned him to remain away from the shops. For reply Smith shot and kill ed the watchman and wounded Lay man, who was standing nearby. Shop employees, attracted by ths shots rushed to the aid of their fel lows, shooting at the negro, who re turned their fire as he retreated. Twc bystanders were wounded by stray bul lets. Smith himself was shot several times, and fell mortally wounded. De spite his condition, leaders of a crow:! that gathered, helped him to his feel, and amid cries of "lynch him," were hurrying him away when officers arriv ed and, assuring the crowd the negro would be given a speedy trial, took him in charge. The negro died a few moments later. NEGRO SCHOOL BURNS Ward Hall Destroyed by flames Driv en by Wind. Kansas City, April 5. Ward hall, the largest dormitory of Western uni versity, an Industrial school for ne groes at Quindaro, Kan., seven miles northwest of here, was destroyed by Are, with a loss of $50,000. For a time it was feared all the university buildings would be lost because of a high wind that prevailed. The fire is supposed to have been caused by a defective flue. When the tire broke out, 100 boys, students at the college who lived in the burned dormitory, were on the campus. Although the flames had gained much headway, the students rushed into the building to save their belongings. Many reached their rooms In time to throw their goods from up stair windows. All escaped from the building safely. Western university is the second largest school for negroes in the country. It was founded fifteen years ago by William T. Vernon, wh'o was its president and who later was ap pointed registrar of the United States treasury. The university is sustain ed by appropriations from the state of Kansas and by donations from the African Methodist church. The Peevish Weeds Child Laxative It is natural for a child to laugh and play and when it sulks drowsily or cries you may depend on it something physical is the matter. If you see no evidences of a serious ailment you will not be wrong if you quietly give it a dose of mild laxative that evening on putting it to bed. The remedy most generally recommend ed for this purpose Is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, which mothers through out the country have been 'giving their children for a quarter of a century. To day thousands of families are UBing it where hundreds used it then, and there must be good reason for this word of mouth recommendation. It is admittedly the perfect laxative tor children, women, old people and all others who need a gentle bowel stimu lant and not a violent salt, cathartic pill or doctored water. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Persia will act gently, and when taken before retiring will bring complete satis faction In the morning. After a short use of this remedy all forms of outside aid can be dispensed with and nature will again act alone. All classes of good American people Keep it in the home for ills of the stom ach, liver and bowels, and among the thousands who have written the doctor that they will never be without it are I.Irs. Ben McElroy, 423 Indiana Ave., Hol ton, Kas., and Mrs. E. Phipps. 2560 Alden Ave., Kansas City, Kas. A dose of it has saved many a person from a serious Ill ness. Anyone wishing to make a trial of this remedy before buying it in the regular way of a druggist at fifty cents or one dollar a large bottle (family size) can have a sample bottle sent to the home free of charge by simply addressing Dr. W. B. Caldwell. 405 Washington St., Mon ticello, 111. Your name and address o a postal card will do. - New York, April 5. The delegation which will be elected on Tuesday next at the Republican state convention at Rochester which will represent the Re publican party of New York at tht national convention of next June will be unhampered by any instructions so far as candidates are concerned. That, at least, is the expectation of the Re publican organization of the state. It is quite likely to happen that no ref erence will be made at the state con vention to the presumptive candidacy of President Taft or of Colonel Roose velt or of LaFollette. The delegatior will, however, carry to Chicago instruc tions which are intended to impress upon the Republicans of the Uniteu States the view of the party of New ork state that at this time issues based upon fundamental principles, and not upon any particular candidate, are matters to which the Republican party should give its serious consideration. If the plans of the leaders of the Re publican organization are carried out at Rochester the country is likely to be greatly impressed by what is done and what is said at the time of the convention. In the first place, ther--. is to be no patronage to be parceled out. No political, plums will be gath ered by this convention, since there is to be no harvest of that kind. If some of the precedents, were followed, this convention could complete its work in single afternoon. It would lister to the address of the temporary chair man, appoint its committees, whose work had been carefully parceled out and allotted, receive the perfunctory reports, elect delegates and then ad journ. From all parts of the state, however, there have come evidences that the members of the party regard the situ ation that prevails today as even more serious than that which the country confronted in 1896. Republicans wiio have not been active in politics, but who are men given to earnest and careful thought, have been saying to their friends that the situation at this time, so far as the issues are con cerned, is as critical as was the case at the time of the civil war. The free silver issue and the tariff issue, im portant as these were and are, wert nevertheless based upon fiscal policies Now the feeling is that some of the policies recently advocated reach to the very fundamentals of our form of government, and in this view there i to be discovered one of the several is sues which are to be presented to the people; for there are many who look upon these policies as essential if there are to be health, and prosperity and long life for the American repuo lic. A Representative Body. The Republican convention at Roch ester will, in its personnel, reflect wide spread intellectual and political activity of the American people, itself regarded as a symptom of health. The delegates to the state convention will, as a whole, be a very representative body of New York citizens. There are ot be two for mer governors sitting with the dele gates ex-Governor S. Black and ex- Governor Horace White. The univer sities of New York state are to be represented. Dr. Butler of Columbia. President Sehurman of Cornell and other educators will take seats with the other delegates; Andrew D. White has been so greatly stirred by the in tellectual and political unrest that he although advanced in years, has con sented to take part in the convention as a delegate. The lawyers of the state will be in a minority. Business men, bank presidents, manufacturers and scholars will constitute a majority of this body. It is expected that the chairmen of the Republican state com mittee, William Bond, and his asso ciates will subordinate . themselves, whether for motives of policy or not does not matter. It is expected, there fore, that in its personnel this con vention will remind some of the vet erans of the days of the civil war when great men of affairs and of in tellect took part in New York state Republican conventions. What Will Be Done. After the convention has been called to order and, in accordance with custom the state committee has announced its selec tion of temporary chairman who is to be Dr. Butler of Columbia university the chief address from the platform will be delivered. Dr. Butler has been for some three weeks in the south and is presumed to have prepared an address in which the thought will be m line with those views recently expressed by him in an address ! at St. JLoms wrncn the tTnited States senate ordered published as a public docu ment. After Dr. Butler's address a committee on resolutions will be appointed. Eacn congress district will by itself elect a member representing the district, and after the appointment this committee will retire. Presumably the committee will be in session all of the afternoon and per haps the evening. It is expected that questions of reformation of currency, the tariff, arbitration, and especially the policy suggested by the terms initiative, referendum and recall, as well as recall of judicial decision, will be considered. Dis cussion in this committee wili be very free, and when the committee has formu lated its views the utmost care will be taken in expressing them in clear, con cise English. On the second day, the permanent or ganization having been effected, the com mittee on resolutions will be asked to make its report. It is the expectation that speeches will be made from the floor of the convention hall by men of ability and of high character based upon this platform or series of resolutions. It should be a most Instructive and impres sive debate. It will be characterized by intellectual ability and by sincerity. If the purposes of those who are planning the convention are carried out the gather ing is not to be utilized to subserve any ambition or any personal interest. The single wish in the hearts of the leaders who will attend the convention is that it may be able to formulate the fundamental principles of the Republican party and '.o impress upon the country its view that the crisis at tnis time is grave and its conviction that the unrest may be quieted i healthful manner. The delegates at large will be elected after the platform has been adopted; these will be Senator Root, ex-Governor Black, who has been persuaded to forego his purpose to retire from active political life because he believed the emergency to be erave: former Sneaker Wadswortn, and William Bond, chairman of the Re publican state committee. It ts tne ex pectation of the leaders that the district delegates will, as a whole, compare iav orably in intellect and prestige with the delegates at large. The Real Instruction. If the convention takes any vote at all involving instructions, that vote will be confined to the resolutions which) will be set forth as the rjlatform of the Repub licans of New York state. Probably the delegates will be Instructed to urge upon the delegates to the national convention the vital need of embodying in a national platform the principles set forth by the Republicans of New York state. These instructions and no others will be given. The belief prevails among the Republican leaders that if the national platform be right then it is certain that the candi date who stands upon it will be the can didate whom the Republicans shou'd nominate. The delegates to the Chicago convention from New York will, therefore, go to tn -nlBim are carried out, committed to no other purpose than the expression in the Republican national platform of the principles whien tne re publicans of New York city believe are fundamental. No Petty Politics. At the state convention of next Tues day nothing In the way of smaller poli tics will be tolerated. There will be no intimation or discussion involving th3 candidate whom the Republicans wiil nominate for governor this year. State and congressional politics are to be post poned by common consent until next fall. It is the hope of leading Republicans of the state that what is said and done at the Rochester convention may serve to concentrate the thought of the Republican partv throughout the country upon whit the Republican leaders of New York state believe to be the fact that the present is a time of great national crisis involving fundamental issues. HOLLAND. FIRE DESTROYS FIXE STORE. Loss Is Heavy Blaze Believed Work of Incendiaries. Havensville, Kan., April 5. Fire broke out in the Dennen mercantile store and completely destroyed the en tire stock ot general merchandise, valued at between $15,000 and $20,000. The stone building, 75 by 100, was butted from front to rear. The fire is supposed to have originated from par ties pilfering, as a sack of can goods and clothing were later found in the railroad yards, believed to have been dropped by some party endeavoring to get away. The heroic work of the firemen and the splendid waterworks svstem kept the fire from spreading to the adjoining buildings. ine stock was insured for about $8,000 or $10, 000, the building for only $1.500. Bin-bank Sells Out. Santa Rosa, Cal., April 5. Luther Burbank, the wizard of horticulture, has sold all his fruit, flower and plant creations, present and future, to Rollo Hough of Oakland and W. Gar ner Smith of San Francisco. No statement of Ihe sum that changed hands was made. Hereafter Bur bank will have nothing to do with the marketing of his products, but will be free to devote bis entire time to experimentil work. He wishes to leave commercial life altogether for science. POLITIGALGOSSIP Neglect to Endorse Capper Here a Surprise. Supposed It Would Be Given as Matter of Course.

It shows how far the factional fight in the party has gone, and to what bitter lengths1, when a local can didate for a high office cannot get local support because he is of the oth er faction. Mr. Capper's opposition to Taft was undoubtedly responsible. J. B. "Bun" Adams, a regular, was endorsed for congress in the Eighth district by his home county committee, and Butler county is insurgent. C. S. Huffman, candidate for gover nor, .was endorsed by ms crawiora county committee. Frank Ryan was enuorsed in nis home county of Leavenworth. Walter Payne, a regular, and candi date for treasurer, was endorsed by the progressives of his home town of Lawrence. But the Shawnee county regulars, in full control or tne situation, reius ed to consider the endorsement of' Arthur Capper of Topeka without a I fight. And they were in the endors-1 ing business, too. They endorsed I President Taft. Senator Curtis and Congressman Anthony. The Anthony ; and Curtis men were in control or tne convention. The much talked of har mony move was forgotten. On the other hand, tne insurgents are not wasting much time and effort in their search for harmony In tne G. O. P. Over in Jackson county they had control of the county committee and they took advantage of the state call that allowed tnem to name ine state convention delegates any way they wanted to. The Jackson county committee proceeded to name the state delegates itself without calling either convention or primary. This is the most remarkable proceeding in the selection of state convention dele gates in the history of this campaign. It is the hardest blow at the primary system. The most striking usurpation of power of the people to take a part in affairs. And by insurgents, too. The action of the Second district con gressional committee last year In call ing a convention instead of a primary is the only parallel of the Jackson county committee action. And the Sec ond district committee was insurgent, too. It takes an insurgent to really and effectively kill an insurgent prin ciple. With all the talk of the Roose velt campaign managers from coast o coast for a primary, a Roosevelt com mittee in Jackson county refused to call either a caucus convention where a few people might take p;-rt, or a pri mary where all the people might taKe part, but proceeded to name the dele gates by committee. The Taft com mitteemen favored a primary. Had this act been done by a Taft committee in behalf of Taft the insurgent papers would have called on the high heavens to witness the outrage and the gov ernor would have sent several tele grams to Washington. ' But done by r. Roosevelt committee in behalf of Roosevelt it is all right and proper. Verily, it dependeth upon whose ox is gored. Four of the eight counties of the First congressional district have al ready named delegates to the state and congressional conventions. Shawnee and Leavenworth named 51 delegates for Taft. Jefferson and Jackson named 20 for Roosevelt. Atchison, Brown, Don iphan and Nemaha are yet to hear from. The big fight will occur in At chison and the complexion of the Fir"st district delegation may hinge on that fight. The four remaining counties have 47 delegates to elect. ELOPERS RETURN. Floret ta Whaley Is Visiting Her Rel atives in New York. Home of Douglas Shoes ! 614-Kansas Avenue-614 Hempstead, L. I., N. Y., April 5. Floretta Whaley, who eloped from Hempstead six years ago, when 16 years of age, with the Rev. Jere Knode Cooke, rector of St. George's Episcopal church, of which August Belmont is senior warden, returned to the home of her grandfather with the statement that she was homesick for old friends and relatives. Cooke did not accompany her and she stayed but a short while, then re turned to New York, where she joined the excommunicated clergy, man. The former minister and the girl who renounced her family for his sake came east from San Francisco where they have been living since the elopement.' Scarlet fever and diph theria were epidemic in San Francisco at the time and inasmuch as a child had been born to them, it was deemed expedient to come east for a short visit in order that Floretta might see her relatives. When Cooke and the girl left Hempstead he deserted his wife, who was v. member of a promi nent and well-to-do family in Hart ford, Conn. The elopement caused a sensation. . Miss Whaley will shortly inherit more than $25,000 from her father's estate and upon the death of her grandmother, Mrs. Kaziah Whaley of this place, she will-receive about $50, 000 more. Cooke has gone into busi ness in San Francisco and prospered. FOSS OUT OF THERACE Governor Withdraws His Xante From the Primary Ballot. Boston, April 5. Governor Eugene N.
