Every Inch of his way has-been fonght by the other candidates since his unexpected run of good luck in tho Fifth district. Tho contest has been won and lost sovoral times since It began. First tho antl-Bailoy men gained prestige by taking somo counties away from Bailey in tho First district, and Colo stock went skyward. Then Bailey pushed away ahead by getting county after county in tho Soventh, and when ho got Pottawatomlo, in tho Fourth, away from Rlchter and Mil ler, his managers looked upon the contest as won. Then camo his suc cesses in tho Fifth district, and Colo got out of tho race. It was expected that Colo's retirement would glvo tho nomination to Bailey, but J. A. Troutman took the load on tho antl B alloy side and regained in tho Third district what had beenlostiln the Fifth.

DEFENDED GEN. FUNSTON Senator Spooner Called Down the Critical Politicians. Washington, May 3 In tho Senat today, referring 'o General Funston, Senator Spooner of Wisconsin, said tho general may havo talked too much but, if he had, he had done no more than senators who aro not in military lifo had done about this war in the Philippines. Tho icharge had been mado this way, said ho, that Funston fought his way to fame with tho "jawbono of an a?s." That was unjust, unworthy of those who mado it. Funston had won fame as a soldier by leading tho brav est of bravo men in buttlo and had won at the same thno tho commenda tion of President McKinley, one of tho most boautlful characters in tho life of the nation. Funston had not won his fame with tho "jawbono of an ass," but with his sword. In tho senato of tho United Statos, of all places, said Mr. Spooner, the 'effort ought not to bo made to bo smirch tho roputatlon and tho honor of the army. Outrages probably had boon committed in isolated instances In tho Philippines. Ho condoned no outrages of any kind. All charges officially mado of such outrages would be investigated thoroughly and un doubtedly tho guilty would bo punfshed, HENDERSON NOMINATED Speaker of tho House to bo Returned to Congress.

Kansas City, May 3 A dispatch from Topoka says that tho Union Pacific Railroad company has undor consideration a plan to remove its shops from Kansas City, Kas., to that city. Whllo no roport of this kind has boon recolvod by officials of tho Union Pacific In Kansas City, Kas.. tho story Is given somo credence. Tho Union Pacific claims that it is con tinually hampered In Wyandotte coun ty on account of tho tax quostlon, while it is almost certain that tho road would bo relieved of taxation by tho Shawnee county official, if it wero to removo Its shops to Topcka. Anbther thing, tho shops will soon have to bo robullt. Tho presont shops have been standing for years. Tho shops could bo robullt In Topeka as easily as in Kansas City, Kas., and tho only In convenience would bo tho removing of tho machinery, which -would not bo a great task. The Topoka Commercial Club has alroady taken the matter up and will probably offer inducements to tho Union Pacific to removo to that city. Tho Union Pacific shops and ropalr yards in Kansas City, Kas., cover about twenty acres in what is known as tho Fifth ward. About COO men tire employed (.the year round, and tho shops are looked upon as ono of the city's best Institutions. Tho Union Pacific shops wore tho starting of Kan sas City, Kas., then known as old Wyandotte. Over thlrty-Dvo years ago tho Union Pacific established its eastern terminus In that city and lo cated shops on tho levee, In the north ern part of tho city. In 1874 the shops wore reraovod to their present loca tion, more building wero erected and now machinery placed In them. Year by year the capacity of tho shops has beon increased and employment given to a groater number of men. If tho shops were to bo removed it would mean a loss of at loast 3,000 in population to Kansas City, Kas., and perhaps more. If tho shops wero to bo rebuilt on tho present site it would mean a greator benefit to tho oity. PROBING BEEF TRUST E. C. Crow, IState Attorney General to Investigate Kansas City, May 1, E. C.
