Upon tho theory that llko attracts liko, It Is not suprlslng that President Hoosovolt should havo appointed Hoprosontatlvo William II. Moody, or Massachusetts, to succeed John D. Long as Secretary of tho Navy. Physically Mr. Moody boars so striking a rosemblanco to tho President that ho is very commonly roferred to as tho Prosldont's double. Ho has many of tho President's montal and moral characteristics also. lie is not so impulsive perhaps, or so snappy and energetic in his movements and his speech; but ho is just as earnest, just as honest and takes just as lofty a view of tho duties and responsibili ties of American citizenship. In tho House, where ho has served for soven yoars, ho has the highest standing, and his appointmontygavo unqualified satisfaction to members on both sidos of tho political aisle Without assuming any of tho preroga tives of leadership, ho has yct been recognized, almost since his Art term, as a factor with which any one Inter ested in important legislation had to reckon. Without being in any sonso an orator, he has always boon a bio to command tho attention of tho House, because on tho fow occaslonswhon ho arose to spoak, tho members all knew that ho was expressing the most oarn est and slncoro convictions, and that his conclusions had been roaelied only after an cxhaustlvo study of tho ques tion undor discussion. Among other things ho hud made a careful study of parliamentary practice, and was ono of tho fow men on tho lloor of tho Houso recognized as an authority on that subject. For thlsjreason, as well as for tho knowledgo that no personal or partisan sentlmout f could over per suado him to make a ruling that would vary tho width of a hair from his con viction of what was right, ho has been prominently mentioned as an availablo candidate for Speaker whonovor tho present Incumbent should retiro or bo rotlred. With this prospect boforo Tnlra In tho House, and with a proud and enthusiastic constituency behind him, his congressional future looked bright indeed, and thero has been no affectation In tho regret no hu-. fteoly expressed In making tho change. Ex pressing thin regret to tlio writer yes terday, his last day in the House, ho .added: "It ends a servico which has been agreeable and inspiring, and sovors tho relation with a considerate and gonerous constituency. Hut I take away many pleasant memories. After seven yoars' sorvlcohero I havo a linn and abiding faith In Congress. 1 be lieve that It Is truly representative of tho best there is In American life, and in largo degreo Is composed of men who aro earnestly striving for tho public welfare. Through tho wldoly differing opinions thoro seems to mo to run a current of devotion to tho country. It Is not conllned to any party or any section, and is tho salva tion of tho republic." Ho is admirably equipped, however, for tho now duties upon which ho en ters. During tho past soven yours ho lias been a member of tho naval eotn inltto and on this account he has boon brought into intimate relations with the great department ovor which ho is now to preside. A student by nature and habit, ho has mado It his business during all thoso years to familiarize himself with all tho details relating to tho support and inanago meat of tho navy, and' he will bo able to tako up his now work with a full ness of Information touching all the duties It will involve which fow of his predecessors havo had. That he will administer tho olllco with discretion, energy and great wisdom nobody need have tho least doubt. Nearly overy visitor who looks In upon tho Houso of Representatives for tho llrst tlmo remarks that tho major ity of tho members aro much younger men than he expected to see. As a matter of iact the avorugo ago of tho members Is forty-nlno yoars. Hut thoro aro probably more under that ago than ovor It, a great number of them being botweon forty und llfty. Ralph Faxon, Mr. Long's secretary, took tho troublo to figure this matter out in homo detail recently and dev eloped somo rather Interesting facts. Ho found that out of tho ontlro mem bership Jlfty-sovon aro men of forty yours or younger. Of the Kansas dologojlon, four Mr. Long, Mr. Curtis, Mr. Jackson and tho wrltor wore born In tho sumo year. Mr. Calderhoad at llfty-olght Is tho oldost, und Mr. Roedor at flfty-threo is tho noxt In sonlorlty. Mr. Long Is tho youngest member of tho delegation preceding tho wrltor hereof by a mouth and a wook. Tho youngest man In tho Houso Is John J. Fcely, of Chicago, who will not be twentysovon yoars old until next August. Tho noxt youngest mem ber Is Asbury Lover, of South Caro lina, who was prlvato hccrrtary to his predecossor, and who passed his twcnty-Bovonth birthday recently. The oldest member of tho House is Galusha A. Grow, of Pennsylvania, father of tho homestead law, who entered Con gross for tho llrst tlmo moro thun half a century ago. Of couso ho has not boon in continuous service during all this period, but ho Is now serving hU fourth consecutive term since his re juvenation in 1801. Thoro Is no mem ber of tho House moro punctual and regular In his attendance thun Mr. Orow, and In spite of his yours ho is strong and active, und his mind ap parently us vigorous und alert as over Ho does not speak often, but when ho does address tho Houso his volco rings out with tho vigor and power of man hood's prime, and his thought is logical, clear and strong. Thoro uro fowor young men in tho Senate, of course, whero tho member ship Is restricted to two members from each state, and whoro ago and experi ence count for considerable But ovon comparatively speaking thero aro fower young men thoro, tho notablo oxcoptlons bolng Bailey of Texas, who is thirty-oight, and Bovorldgo, of In diana, who 1b In his thirty-ninth year. Balloy has been "prominently men tioned" as tho Democratic candldato for Prosldent In 1004, and Boverldge has been a conspicuous flguro In tho Scnato ovor slnco his olection In 180!). Ho has mado soveral notable speeches. Bovorldgo is tall and slender, und during tho last Congress was given the sobriquet of "tho wasp from tho Wabash," by Tillman, of South Car olina, whom ho had roferred to as "a guncap, or a box of matches." Mc Laurln of South Carolina, Penroso of Pennsylvania and Kittrcdgo of South Dakota aro forty-ono yoars old. But as has been stated, those aro tho ex ception rather than tho rule, men ripo in years and length of servico pre dominating in tho upper houso of Con gress. Senator Collum, who looks llko Lincoln, is sovunty-tlireo; Sena tor Hoar, of Massachusetts is seventy six, and Senator Pettus, of Alabama Is oighty-ono. Thero aro many others, too, who aro veterans In senatorial servico, and whoso years easily out number tho allotted three score and ten. Thirty-seven years ago Kansas had but ono roprcsontativo in tho Houso. This lono roprcsontativo was Sidney Clarko, now a resident of Oklahoma City, but at present In Washington. He finds but two men now In Congress who wero hero when ho represented tho state in tho Thirty-ninth, Fortieth and Forty-llrst congresses from 18(i." to 1871. Senator Allison of Iowu was hero In tho Houso at tho samo time, dropping out In 1871 and coining to tho Senate in 187.'!. Senator Halo of Maine entered tho JIouso in Clarko's last torin, 180!) to 1871!, and continued thero until ho went to tho Scnato in 1881, with ono term's exception. Sen ator Stewart of Nevada entered tho Sontito in 18(i,"), when Clarke went in the Houso, but Stewart was out of tho Scnato from 1875 to 187". It would bo- interesting to know of what stulV their ships wero mado that they havo been ablo to sail so long on "tho troacherous vitriol sea." C. F. S. Hickory Stuidors Arrested. Somo weeks ago, possibly a month, tho Ruqistkk reported an assault mado on a young man on west Madi son avenue by a colored mun. Tho colored party to tho aJTulr was Hickory Sanders and ho left lola im mediately und stayed away until Mon day when ho returned hero and tho polico nabbed him. Tho story of tho crime is given by L. D. Ragland, a young whito man, who says that San dors approached him ono evening Ion tho street und demanded a nlcklo. Huglund refused and Sanders struck him. Ragland sworo out a complaint, charging .assault and using profane language on tho street, Ibut Sunders had disappeared. Ills trial was set for the aftornoon. Hickory was turned looso after bo ing arrested on his own recognizance and ho ovldontly recognized that ho was up ugainst it for ho skipped and did not appear for trial. Dickey Fighting for Cliauuta Gtis Ono of tho considerations which In duced W. S. Dickey to decldo to lo cate his tllo and brick works at Cha nuto was tho leaso known us the Colo leuso which ho isup)osed was coming to him. On this leaso was drilled soveral months ago tho best gas woll in tho Chanuto Hold. Tho Colloyvillo brick pooplo, however, claim tho sumo louse und put a gang of fifteen mon from Independence atiwork, connected tholr pipes with tho woll and aro prob ably using It now. They claim to hold a prior louse on tho land. Tho Dickey peoplo havo taken legal stops to oust them but tho ColToyvlllo peo plo show fight and, having possession may mako Dickoy a heap of troublo.

Thoro was a goodly gathorlng of old lino Rciiubllcans In town Tuesday the occasion bolng tho called meeting of tho fifty or more members 'of tho county central committee. Tho moet Ing was held In tho court room tit tho court houso and tho principal busi ness of the moot was tho selecting of a date for holding tho county convention and primaries. Tliw . attendance was not full but thoro woro thirty or forty of tho com mittee present and Chairman Ewing called the mooting to order. Tho tlmo of holding tho convention was discus sed so as to hold It when tho wheat and corn crops would not keep tho farmers from attending and tho can didates wero called on for expressions of opinion. Somo favored Juno 7 und others Juno 21. After a full discus sion It was decided to hold tho primar ies on tho 14th und tho convention on Juno 17. Morun was selected as tho place for holding tho convention. ClarkThom as mado an impassioned plea, setting forth tho fact that tho Katyhad agreed to run a special truin to roach Moran from lola about 10 o'clock, that pro vision was mado for feeding tho dele gates and tho train would bring them back when tho convention adjourned. Thoro was no other cuudldate und so tho convention will meet in Morun at 11 a. m. Juno 17. It was docldcd also to print tho rules regarding primary olection for tho in struction of voters who aro uot famil iar with the system in voguo hore. It was also ordered that tho secrctnry havo tho primary tickets printed ten days boforo tho convention, so candi dates must have tholr announcements with him by that tlmo to get on tho tickets. Jlisi Mitchell Kc-L'lecteil Tho lola board of education met In Its annual sossion Monday to (con sider matters of importance to tho schools of tho city. Reports wero re ceived and tho board reorganized. For tho onsulng twdvo months tho olllcers of tho board will bo E. C. Remsburg, president, D. P. Northrup, vlco-prosldent, and G. M.

A RraiSTim subscriber whoso busi ness takes him Into tho Whito river region of Arkansas, (Ark,,) in a re cent letter to an lola friend makes tho following interesting comment: "It lias been known for soveral years that thoro woro pearls In tho Whito river, Arkansas, mussols Jund notices of valuablo finds havo oc casionally appeared In tho papers. But It Is only within tho last year that tho business of hunting them has assumed Important proportions. Tho most productive beds seem to Ho In tho neighborhood of Newport, Ark., and Jacksonport, and somo llftccu or twenty miles along tho course of tho stream, and tho peoplo of that vicinity havo been gradually giving moro lat tcntion to tho business until within tho past threo or four months it has becomo a vorltablocrazo. Everybody who can get to tho rlvor goes "pearl ing." Of course it is uncertain busi ness; ono may work a year and find nothing and another may find a for tuno withcry little labor. "Recently thoy havo been very suc cessful. Valuablo pearls arc brought to tho buyers at Newport overy day and "Slugs" or imperfect pearls aro in everybody's hands. Of course overy valuablo find adds to the excite ment and starts now pearlers Into tho business. "WJillo I was thero ono day last week an old negro woman, who had thrown up her job as cook in a family in town to hunt pearls, came In with a beauty which sho sold for ?1200. ,A negro man on the samo day found ono worth two thousand dollars. It weighed something over ono hundred grains. . Tho day boforo a whito man, ijn ex-section foreman found a pearl valued at $1800. These wsro excep tionally flno specimens; tho ordinary, or avorago, bolng worth anywhere from ten dollars up toono or two hun dred. "Tho process of getting tho mussels out is very much llko gathering oysters. Thoso who can .allord It havo a Hat boat with a bole through tho bottom through whluh thoy oper ato a pair of tongs or grab hooks which bring up about a pock of shells at a time. These aro then dumped In to a vat of hot water kept on board and as tho shells open tho flesh is scraped out und tho cleaned shell thrown aside. Tho fisher then goes through tho moat carofully after his pearl, and lastly tho flesh Is turned ovor to tho hogs. "While thero is no cortainty of finding tho gems, tho operator Ii sure of a good day's wagos from the fact thut tho empty shells find ready mark et ut nine dollars per ton loaded In tho car, und a thousand pounds of shells is only a fair day's work. "An idea of tho proportions of tho business can bo gathered from tho fact that slnco last July over threo hundred etr loads of shells havo been shipped from Newport alone. They go to button factorios in sovoral dif ferent states, and many (of them aro shipped to Germany and Austria "i spoke of getting tho sholls'out by means of a boat: That Is tho aristo cratic way of doing it. Gonorally tho Pearler can afford only hand tools, a pitch fork or a garden rake and with these he wades In tho water all day raking out tho sholls, and saturating his frame with malaria. Another do vico is to tako a pleco of gas pipe, bIx or eight feot long, run a lot of flno wires through it and mako brush of them on ono end. This ho prods down Into tho water und whenever a wire happens to enter tho 'open shell of a mussel ho closes on it with what is literally his doath grip and Is brought to tho surface and scraped off into tho hot water bath. Tho Pearl beds in Whito river seem to be practically inexhaustible. Tho banks along that part of tho stream aro lined with Campers and tho rlvor covered with boats of all descrlp. tlons.
