O Parsons, chief of police, has i been prevailed upon by friends to con- ' tinue on the job, even without an In- j crea.se in salary, ana ne win not re sign. A week ago, after Mayor J. E. House had exhausted every resource in an attempt to increase Parsons's salary without violating the law. Par sons wrote the mayor a letter in which he asked for a vacation in which to look for another job. The mayor took the matter up again and went over the Ptate law and city ordinances, in an effort to find some way out. When everything else failed the mayor tried to talk Parsons out of the notion of resigning. Friends came to his res cue and among them they persuaded Parsons to reconsider. One thing Parsons is interested in as much as an increase for himself is an increase for the patrolmen and it is not improbable that some assur ances were given him that the patrol men might receive an increase before the year is out.

According to his own state ment faith was Ford's sole stock when ; he started. He had not enough and ! thoe who accompanied him, with a i few exceptions, appear to have had but f little. I Those of the party who really wish ed the expedition well were so bitter , ly hated that an effort was made to ! maroon a number of them at the first ! European port touched. Ford's plan, as nearly as it is possible to put so : intangible a thing on paper, was to i give the warring nations mental sci . ence treatment. Ford himself at the outset had unbounded faith in hie ability. Despite trie statement at tributed to him that he intended to j "get the boys out of the trenches by i Christmas," he did not count on im rmd'attly ending the war.

Senator Burton arrived in Topeka this after noon. Theodore Burton. At the National hotel Senator Bur ton declared that relations of the two parties were shaping themselves in way that pointed to a Republican vie tory in November. The tariff, nation al defense, foreign relations and the Mexican situation are the chief issues of the campaign as seen by Burton. "As a patriotic American citizen. I have hoped that national defense would not be an issue in the cam paign, yet it seems that the issue can not be avoided," said Senator Burton. "Protection will be one of the big questions before the people in the coming campaign, while foreign poli cies and the Mexican question must also be disposed of. Same Over Country. "Indications from every section of the country indicate that the Progres sives and Republicans will be together in the national fight. I believe that is the general tendency everwhere just as I find it here in Kansas."

"As1 to underlying reasons, I can not say." Nor would the Ohioan ven ture a guess.

At that time he was selected by the Republican na tional convention to follow President Wilson on his western speaking tour. Senator Burton spoke in Topeka in October, 1912, a week following the Wilson address. WORST ISCOMING! Signs Show February Will Be a Fearful Month. Spiders Hang Their Heads; Caterpillars Start South.
