TOPEKA ilSil t the dressing without olive oil PASSEDJHE BILL House "Would Consolidate Three Labor Departments Ami Place Them Under One . Head Appointed hj Hodges. After a bitter fight in which Speaker W. L. Brown of the house charged that the. Socialists place the red flag above the stars and stripes, and in which the two Socialist' mem bers of the house declared the legis lature is giving a "knockout blow" to labor, and threatened that the seats of the members in the near 'future -would be filled with Socialists, the house late yesterday by a vote of 86 to 31 passed the Itines bill, creating a department of labor and industry. The bill also abolishes the present system of selecting a commissioner of lnbor. 'The only serious change made in the bill before it was passed was an amendment placing the office entire ly at the appointment of the gover nor. The original bill provided for an appointment until the time of the regular election in 1914, when the commissioner should be elected by the people of the states The amendment striking out the elective feature of the measure . was introduced by W. 12. Lyon of Lincoln. A standing vtfte on the amendment was necessary before the speaker was satisfied that it had been carried. Three minor amendments were adopted and a fourth rejected before the measure finally was passed. Speaker Brown offered an amendment striking out the word "organized" with reference to the qualifications of the commissioner. All that will be neces sary will be for him to have been identified with labor, not necessarily organized labor, to qualify. An amendment by ,T. M. Satterthwaite of Butler took off the restriction that the commissioner must be less than DO years old. F. A. Hines of Scott, author of the bill, offered an amendment providing that the assistant commissioner must have had at least fire years' practical experience as a miner in coal mines. This was adopted. The former meas ure left tha office open to operators of mines. An effort to cut the salary of the commissioner from $2,500 a year to $2,000 a year met with failure.

He was followed by Hendricks of Raw lins, who spoke against the measure. Miller of Cherokee, one of the So cialists in the house, then secured the floor and during his speech a lively tilt ensued between him and Speaker Brown, who had left his seat to speak on the measure. "What is the political complexion of the man who is now at the head of the bureau and of his deputies?" Brown demanded. "That does not matter so long as he is doing his duty," retorted Miller. "As a matter of fact they are all Socialists, arc they not?" Brown per sisted. Miller evaded the question. Miller characterized the measure as a "knockout blow" to labor and de nied an allegation by Brown that the society which elected the commis sioner was dominated by any political party. Speaker Brown himself followed, Ue clarip.? that a group of 39 persons licrt lo.ore had controlled the society, and de nouncing the methods of the members. He characterized the present methods as unfair and unwise. He said he is a friend of labor, and that he believed the new measure is suited to its needs. The house was treated to a real burst of passionate eloquence when B. F-. Wil son of Crawford, also a Socialist, secured the floor. Wilson declared that the of ficers of the law are now hunting miners in West Virginia like rabbits, an exa"mple, he implied, of the treatment the miners might expect if the present bill was passed. J. V. Bailey of Brown declared the Rock Island shopmen of Horton are against the measure, and that for their sake he opposed it. J. A. Mahurin of Coffey talked for the bill. Robert Stone of Shawnee led the fight on the minority side of the house in favor of the measure. He declared that at present the people of the state are taxed without being given any voice in the de partment. He declared the measure is not a blow at labor, either organized or unorganized, but declared it is intended to help the unorganized but honest work man as well as organized labor.

WASH BLOOD Earle Dewey, a Kansas Boy, Had the Stage Fever. His Dancing1 Dolls Are Feature of the Midwinter. Earl S. Dewey, who is at the Kansas Midwinter exposition with his "clus ter of bewitching budds," is a Kansas boy. He was born in Manhattan, and spent three years at the State Agricul tural college in an attempt to learn to use tools. But it was no use. "It didn't satisfy me," explained Dewey. "I was always singing popular songs, and I longed for a different kind of life. "My -dad' before me was a play wright, and the thing must have been in my blood. When I was hardly able to walk I used to enjoy getting into a box of wigs of my fathers and dress ing up." Mrs. Dewey is an attractive "doll" in the performance at the Midwinter. "My wife was horn in Canada," said Dewey, "but I met her in Detroit. I was in Chicago about to organize the play. 'A Knight for a Day' at Detroit for Whitney. Whitney sent to Detroit for the picture-of a girl-to use in 'The Isle of Spice.' I saw the picture, and I said: 'Why not leave her in Detroit and let me use her in "A Knight for a Day?.'" When I got there she proved to be my wife." Among the gromp of "dancing dolls" is also a, niece of the manager's, an attractive blond. She was formerly a Manhattan girl. Earle Dewey was in r Topeka five years ago, it may be remembered, with the Vanderbilt company. His act at the Auditorium pleases. The Midwinter crowds are on the in crease.

Adv. fNrKSHI With a few minor explanations of votes, the senatorial vote passed the senate with but one . incident, and a sub-incident. The incident was the epic delivered by Senator Balie Waggener when he nom inated U. S. Senator Thompson, and the other was the able second by Senator j Jouette Shouse. So far as a spectator could penetrate, not one Stubbs vote was concealed beneath the surface of . that unanimous landslide for William II. Thompson. ...... Senator Waggener's nomination brought out the value of the "suggestive" system of electing a United States senator, .e recalled the tlme when votors were bought half a century ago, and compared it with the present system, whereby mem bers of the legislature are pledged, in structed or "headed" toward the will ot the state at large. Balie Waggener's nomination" of Sen ator Thompson will become historic, and, in time, be filed in the same handy plgeon-hole with the speeches of Ingalls. Plumb and other statesmen, where news paper men can drag it out and steal frag ments of a remarkable word construc tion. Old heads and non-political news-graD-hers have decided that Senator Mahin, of Smith Center, is a worthy successor of -odd Reed. Todd Reed was a stand patter and a gentleman of the first water, , according to the size-up of the 'irara House, and the Third House is inclirted to hand his follower all the bouquets that haven't suffered from frost. His legal ability adds to his value as a senator, and he bas been chosen by the Third to assist Senator Price in the management of the minority. '' Solid Standpatter. Senator Mahin is a true westerner, and understands the needs of the west, tie was bcrn on a farm in Iowa, and came to Smith county, Kansas, when he was 18 years of age. By working on a farm, (hard work) teaching school, (harder work) he established himself Ir an -undeveloped country, and grew up with it. He started as a Republican, and has worked at It .steadily. He acquired property that is now of value, and estab lished a law practice that would sell for 7-8 cents on the dollar in open market. A firm believer in the future of th, country. Senator Mahin never passed an opportunity to collect unportable prop erty, and is now paying taxes on about 3.500 acres of perfectly good real estate. One of his sons is manager of this real estate, and the other is his law partner, and there is little legal business in Smith county that does not concern the Mantn family. The prize joke of the session, to date, was little Major Boyd's assertion that "men and women have come to me and said that they could not be arrested for selling booze because the chief of police was back of them." Of course the Mai didn't mean it. Anyone with a chromo of the few, hard-pressed bootleggers in this village coming to Maj. Boyd with their confessions, will please rise and be count ed. But the Maj. wanted to make a speed, and he did. As a result, a cer tain county attorney, who happens to be a Democrat but is otherwise all right, and favors the enforcement of all laws, will have an officer waiting for this im portant witness. Maj. Boyd, at the mo ment of final adjournment. The county attorney wants to know about the ex- j cessive wetness of TopeKa; the chief o. police, who has been responsible to a great extent for the driest period in lb history of Topeka, wants to know the names of those he has been "standing behind." The constitution of this state provides that no one shall take issue with any statement made by a member of the leg islature, or require him to prove it: neith er shall he be subjected to any civil suit or subpoena during, or for 15 Jays prior to the session, BUT it does not protect him a minute after the session adjourns, and Mr. Boyd of Republic, who, in to weeks succeeded in securing information that the county and , city officers have sought for pome time, may have oppor tunity to divide with the proper author ities.

We call special attention to the courtesy of the Central-Topeka Paper company for the handsome badges furnished members or the association. We wish to go on record again as being strongly opposed to the govern ment competing with private business in the printing and selling ot govern ment envelopes below cost. We are opposed to the effort ' now being made to raise the rate on second class mail matter. We are also op posed to the act of congress compel ling newspapers to publish the details of their business, and characterize the act as a rank discrimination against the newspapers of the country. We again express our confidence in the prohibitory laws of the state and call attention to its elevating effect upon Kansas life.

We favor the carrying on the plans of the department of journalism at the University of Kansas for placing a cost expert at the service of Kansas publishers who represent the sixth in dusty in Kansas, but have received no direct benefit along the lines of service work done by the state insti tutions. Resolved, That we commend the work of the department of journalism at the University of Kansas and the department of industrial journalism at the State Agricultural college, in giv ing practical training in newspaper work and equipping students for better service. We believe they should re ceive every encouragement and be giv en the means to fulfill their plans for usefulness to Kansas newspaper inter est. Whereas, Charles S. Finch, our vice president, is confined to his bed by a broken knee-cap, and is unable to be with us at this meeting, be It Resolved, That the Kansas Editorial association hereby extends its sincerest sympathy to Brother Finch, with the hope that he will have a speedy re covery. In conclusion, we desire especially to thank the Topeka weather man for the gorgeous, golden, gladsome Kansas weather he has furnished the associa tion for this occasion, which has con tributed so much to its success and added so much to its joy and pleasure.
