Joyce, IIow many now members did tho "Do Right" club enroll last week? The Moros must huvo read that last anti-imperialistic letter. Bartholin did not mako his ap pearance anywhero yesterday. So.Mn ono has said that Death has traded his palo horso for an automo bile Wn wonder if tho subscription list of tho Commoner is as big as it used to bo. General Wheeler, too, has raado tho fatal mistake of falling to please the easy chair critics. Wn hopo you have not expected that Secretary Shaw's koynot speech would plcaso ovorybody. Jon Dristow has lost his job so often in tho nowspuperslthat ho is get ting so ho doesn't mind it. Acjuinaldo is coming to the United States to lecture. Would George Washington have done that? Here is a qulot tip: If tho "Do Right" club was making any appre ciable hoadway, it would say so. It will bo just llko Malno to refuse to go Democratic after Mr. Carmack has perfected all tho arrangements. Mr. Craddock and Mr. Bailey aro to meet at last. Doth will be at Ar ington,i JcfTorson county, on August 27th. Wi: should like to Inqulro If Editor Gaines has yet succeeded In shoring John Curran off the political land scapo. If Mark Twain writes many of his Goneral Funstnn letters, his reputa tion as u humorist will need uphol stering. Mr. ScinvAii says ho la not ill, and tho physicians insist that he is. A sick man always has an idea that ho is in perfect health. Wi: hoar a good deal thoso days about mon with "red" blood coursing through their voins. What aro the other varlottos? Tub people who havo been so abso lutely suro that no sort of wen" .e could hurt tho corn will now roleaso tholr explanations. A oood many pooplo will wonder why the President persists In visiting Now England right lu tho face of Mr, Carmack's. predictions. Thk Domocratiecarapalgn text-book will make Its appearance within a few days, exploiting a now list of things which the party is against. Nearly every good story is spoiled because of tho disposition to make it continuous. They aro still talking about the prohistorlcmen. The story that there exits In tho In terior of tho Philippines a real white race is now denied. Tho donlal of tho story is allttlo lato, but It was suro to como. Thu manugersof tho "Do Right" af fair will ploasooxplaln why they dou't issue a daily bulletin tolling of the phenomenal 'growth of tho member ship. y Secretary Shaw is a sortofopl- gram maker himself, Ho said In his speech: "Tho protective tariff Is not tho mother of trusts, though It Is the parent of condltloas whlcli matco H profitable for capital to comblno and labor to organizo. Some of tho newspapers are saying that Lucton Baker desires to run for tho legislature in Leavenworth county. To upprcolato this joko you have got to know Mr. Baker. Mrs. "Km" McCoy is off for a trip around tho world with another man. It Is to be hoped that tho correspon dents who do tho foreign Interviewing will decido that tho story is not good stuff. Mr. Craddock addressed a meeting at Hutchinson, at which only ono hundred wero proscnl. For pcoplowho can havo thoir taxes reduced If thoy want to, tho voters aro displaying a remarkablo lack of Interest in the proposition. General Jacoii II. Smith has boon mentioned as a presidential possibil ity. It seems that If tho general will not cut himself loose from tho popular esteem, his fool friends will work at tho job a little. An Oyster Bay dispatch says that when Governor Odell left tho Presi dent's houso tho other day his faco woro a broad smllo. The Oyster Bay correspondents manage, somehow, to corral all the important nows. The valued Kansas City Journal explains that It Is Port Riley tho President is going to visit, not 11 Mont. Wo aro of thooplnlon that tho Journal Is going to more pains to bo explicit than tho occasion demands. Congressman Jackson has quit denying that there is any prosperity, and now dcclarcsthatit is about over. Congrcssmar Jackson 1b dctormined to tako a dlsagrecablo vlow of it, oven if ho has to tako the contract on basis of future doll'xrv. All of tho kin of tho lato Charles Fair are coming In for a share of tho money. Most of them aro alroudy on the ground at San Francisco, getting ready to break tho will, whatever It is. So many timos when, human naturo is taken out whoro pcoplo can seo it, it makes a spectacle of itself. Some pooplo aro so unfeeling as to Inquire why tho Democrats can novor issuo their campaign toxt-book until after tho Republican document is out. It Is clear enough. Tho managers of tho Democratic publication do not know what they aro against until thoy learn what tho Republicans aro for. Buffalo News: Evening nowspapors in tho country aro pluming them solvos on tho showing mado In their favor In tho census returns, and qulto justly. Roadcrs who aro middle-aged or oldor, can recall tho tlmo when tho morning paper ranked tho latter ono In prestigo and circulation. But tho evening paper grow steadily in favor with tho peoplo as It was discovered that tho larger part of tho nows of a particular day was roported in tho papers of that day. When tho figures of tho census of 1800 woro collated it was found that tho ovonlng papers formed two-thirds of the whole number of dulllei in tho country. The latest report from tho samo authority gives tho ovonlng paper three-fourths of tho number of dallies in tho land. Tho reasons why this is tho situation aro plain, and tho fact of Its truth is tho unanswerable argument for theovonlng journal. 'Tho popular demand fortho ovonlng paper Is three times groater than for Its morning rival, and tho circulation and Influence of tho even ing issuo are proportionately great. Taoso.who advortlso and all who seek u hearing aro awaro of ttho relatlvo values of mornlngand ovonlngpapors, but it is worth whllo at times to pro duco tho aatual figures of tho wide spread popularity of tho evening as compared with tho morning journal. Every day brings somo now advan tage to tho ovenlng paper and cuts somo former advantago away from tho morning Issuo. It used to bo Im possible, for instance, to get more than a general idea of how eloctlons had gone until tho morning paper camo out. Now wherever tho voting machlno is in uso tho ovonlng paper glvos tho roturns with almost olllclal accuracy. Every'shortcr cut In trans portation, transmission of news or conduct of public or private business brings tho paper Issued in tho ovon lng closor to making i full report of all tho interesting ovonts of the day of its date. Tho morning paper will not go out of oxlstenco right away, but It must tend more and moro to tho habit of the magazlno on a small Boalo, tilled chiefly with reading matter for persons of lolsuro, with rehashes of tho ovenlng papers, and with nearly ovorythlng but news In tho true sense. MARK HANNA. Sovcn years ago tho Democratic and Popultot papers printed thousands of columns ot abuso of Mark Ilanna, Tho abuse has stopped and thoro is no moro popular American in tboland than this same Mark Hanna. Yet he is tho same kind of a man that ho was seven yoars ago, bravo, honost, capa ble and trim. Uo Is clean and bright and doos things. Tho pooplo know this now all tho pooplo, Democrats, Populists, Republicans, Baptists, Catholics, Presbyterians, Unitarians, and Indians not taxed. All of which goes to go that Democratic abusu In the long rundocs not hurt. Generally speaking tho man whom tho Democrats abuso is tho man for tho Republicans to tlo up with. A man isn't abused by tho Democrats unless ho Is taking votes from tho Democratic party. And If ho is doing that ho Is engaged in a laudable service. Unless Demo crats tiro fools and knaves they can not bo taken from thoir party savo by honost, clean, rcspcctablo mothods: argument and sound logic. So that it Is a safo proposition that tho man whom Democrats abuso Is clean and decent and Is doing tho Republican party a service This Is as truo to day as It was in 1800. Will Whlto. Tho Democrats never did anything moro inconsistent than to abandon their abuso of Mark Ilanna. If Mark Hanna was a bad man sovon years ago ho is a bad man today. Ho has not changed. Seven years ago tho average Democratic nowspapor spent most of its tlmo reviling and abusing him. Today. these samonowspapors are keeping stlfl vory still and somo of them havo so far rolontcd as to moto out to him a mcasuro of pralso. Tho reason for It is clear enough. Tho abuso of Mark Ilanna has worn off its insulation. Tho pcoplo aro no longer decolvcd by It. Thero has been a revulsion of feeling, if indeed tho in temperatoand malicious arraignment of hlmovorroally impressed tho think ing pcoplo of tho country. If tho Democratic pross overtook tho trouble to explain any of Its many In consistencies, It wduldbo wo will not say Interesting amusing to know what It has got to say In defenso of Its formor lunatic opinions of Mark Ilanna. Not that tho Democratic press could contribute any real Infor mation to tho subject in hand, be cause tho purposo of tho formor Dem ocratic campaign of deceit and mis representation is now patent to the moanest intolllgonco. But it would bo vory amusing. Tho spectacle would afford tho country a splendid article of vaudovlllo, and holp to. whllo away a dull half hour during this tlrcsomo summer tlmo. SENA'IORM'MILLAN Senator James M'MUlan, of Mich igan, who died tho other day, was born In Hamilton, Ontario, May 12, 1838. In 1855 ho moved to Detroit whoro ho entered upon a business ca reer. At tho time of his death he was director of a numbor of tho largest manufacturing institutions of Detroit, was prosldent of Graco hospital and a trustee of tho Detroit Musoum of Art. Ho gave much money to charity and many educational institutions and hospitals woro tho beneficiaries of his generosity. Ho was beginning his third term in tho Senato of tho United States. William E. Curtis pays him this splendid tribute: Ho never asked anything from Con gross for his state that was not ncedod. Ho would not volo against tho inter ests of tho wholo country In order that a few peoplo in Michigan might be bonolited. He supported tho presi dent's reciprocity policy toward Cuba not because ho lacked inteiest In the developing of the beet sugar interost In bis stato, but becuuse he knew It was for tho general welfare, and that thu nutlonal honor required it, and his constituents honored him for It. Although ho never mado a speech, Senator McMillan exercised a power ful lnlluonco on both sides of tho Sen ato Chamber. Every Senator knew that ho was honest, unsolflsh and ac curate In his convictions; that thoro was nothing of thodomagoguo in him; that ho nover had any axes of his own to grind; that he never recommondod a measure until he was satisfied that It was just and wlso. His word wont as far as that of any man in Con gress. Thero was great respect for his judgment, also. Ho was known to bo a successful business man of wide experience, thorough knowledge and unquestioned Integrity, Ho was ac curate in his statements, and nover deceived or misled anybody. Ho sol dom proposed anything that was not adopted, because his colleagues know him and bolloved in him. Tho loss of such a Senator, thero foro, will bo felt moro than when an ordinary public man passos out of n career of active usefulness. Ho was not only eminent as a public servant, but as an oxamplo. He was not a statesman nor a politician, but of tho vory highest typo of tho business man in olllclal life. Senator McMillan's loss will be especially felt by thoso who are Inter ested In tho improvement and beautl flcatlon of Washington City. Ho sought ro-oleotlon to tho Senato two yoars ago for two roasons, Ho was tired of public llfo, and wanted to re tire Ills health was poor, ho had reached tho ago when labor was Irk some, and ho coveted rest and lolsuro; but ho could not stop thoro. THREE TIMES A WEEK How would tho Allen county read ers of tho Weekly Register llko to got a four-pago paper three timos a week instead of a twelvc-pago paper? Tho publisher has a notion thoy would profer it. A four-pago paper is not as largo as a twolro-pagc paper; but threo four-pago papers aro equal to ono twolvo-pago paper just as sure as threo timos four aro twolvo. And under this arrangement you would not havo to wait until Friday for the news of Saturday and Sunday and Monday and Tuesday. You will gel moro nows, too, for a good man) Items which aro Interesting on Mon day or Wednesday havo lost tholi Interost by Friday. Tho Register has always tried to glvo Its readers tho worth of tholr money, and It Is In continuation of .that policy that tho change heroin suggested has been devised. It may bo tho readers will not llko It, and It may prove Im practicable from tho ofllco standpoint. Ifelther of theso things happen tho new plan will bo abandoned and the old system restored. Bwtfor tho noxt fow weeks at least tho Weekly Regis ter will bo published In threo four pago sections, dated Monday, Wednesday and Friday. After you havo tried It a week or two, drop us a card, or call in and lot us know how you like It. LIMITATIONS OF MONEY Charles M. Schwab, tho multi-rnil-llonalro, president of tho United Statos stcol corporation, is sick tho rosult of too much worry of mind. Ho may novor bo woll again. Ho Is young forty years old. How would you llko to bo Charles M. Schwab? Mr. Schwab's salary as president of tho United Stato steol corporation Is 8225,000 a year, $105,000 moro than tho president of Franco; $175,000 more than tho president of the United States. J. Pierpont Morgan is authority for the statement tl.at Mr. Schwab's perquisites raise tho amount which ho receives from tho steel trust to about ono million dollars a year. Mr. Schwab only recently ordered a Now York houso to cost two and a half million dollars. Ho paid 5805, 000 for tho land. Still you would not want to bo Charles M. Schwab, for if tho stories which aro being told of him aro true, andblsmlndisliredjboyor.d all resting, his two and a half million dollar Now York houso might just as woll bo a houso of ctrls. Tho sunshine, the blue sky and tho changing scasqus; tho society of humankind, tho books and tho flowers all of theso cannot interest him now. Of courso it is posslblo that tho multl-mllllonalro'H condition is not so bad as It is said to be, but tho lesson is thero juet the same, and it Is this: Monoy will buy a good many things, but thero aro somo things that it will not buy. Mr. Schwab wants thoso things wants them worso than you want bread. But ho can not get them. With all his money ho can nofc buy tho things which contribute to tho sum of your daily human happiness. It is said that tho Missouri river Is to be abandoned. This will bo a groat surprise to tho Missouri river, which has boon displaying tho "noth ing doing" signal for about a quarter of a century. The Chairman of t' -slo commlt tco for tho G. A. tmpment at Washington wantou to substitute somo other music for tho old time war music, and Commander Loomls told him: "No old time war muslo, no old soldiers from Kansas." Commander Loomls' bolllgorent attltudo can bo approalatod all tho moro readily when It is known that tho commltteo wanted to substitute ragtlmo music for tho old patriotic sort. Leavenworth Times: That llttlo touoh of the Kansas prohibitory law which Commissioner Waro has taken to Washington with him, seems to bo as much disliked thero as prohibition Is here. But Waro is right. It is growing moro evident ovory day that tho man who wants to bo anybody, who famounts to anything, or who wants to succeed in any walk in llfo has got to cut out the liquor, the to bacco and the bad habits, The world Is growing moretemperate overy day simply because peoplo are finding out that it pays. ' s KANSAS CLIPS Tho abovo-ground work of a gas woll has been resumed at Emporia, Twonty-sovcn soldiers' reunions will bo hold in this Stato between now and October. Moro than 100 ico cream soda fionds woro poisoned at Independence by eat ing at a fountain whero tho milk had In somo way becomo poisoned. Eighty Wichita wives have brought dlvorco sultsslnto tho first of January, whllo twenty husbands have sought tho courts for tho samo purpose. Tho Chanuto Sun Is authority for iho statement that a man of that town has brought In a roaring gas woll by "drilling on his porsonal holdings." An oxchango notes that tho Monoj Question, which has always been tin important Issuo with tho Demociau, has bobbed up again In tho shape of a lack of campaign funds. Now tho penitentiary warden claims thu "Lansing man" was a buried con vict. What manner of man Is this who claims to be a Kansan and yet will try to spoil a pretty storyl Mrs. Prlco, of Ft. Scott, has sued tho A. O. U. W. for tho $1,000 insur ance her son carried. Ho was in ar rears with his dues when ho died, hence tho lodgo's refusal to pay. A dog taken from Chanuto to Par sons lust spring recently came trot ting Into Chanute. Chanuto is blush ing and looking down until it can decido how to tako tho occurrence. Tho Hutchinson News sees a re markablo coincidence in tho fact that just when both tho Kansas United States senators aro on tho ocean, all tho candidates for tholr places are at sea. Two'vo thousand regulars have been ordered to Ft. Riley for tho fall maneuvers. With tho Stato militia added thero will bo 15,000 men march ing. Kansas has seldom seen such an array. Hutchinson peoplo will hereaftor vlow moro leniently tho young spoons nho stay out driving until 1 u. in. Such a couplo discovered a Uro at that hour recently, gavo tho alarm and saved a lino residence. Fmporia Gazette: Ever catch a fish just big enough to make you study whether it is big enough to keep or throw away? Woll you know how tho populists fool in this conuty about tho democratic ticket. Dr. Ah Sam, a gcnulno celestial, Is running for coroner on tho Demo cratic ticket in Leavenworth, with a good chanco of winning. It is ono of tho very fow colestial things to which tho party can point with pride. Tho story that Charles Schwab's mind has given away is easily bo Moved by tho averago person. Don't you tniDK you'u act crazy, even h you wero not daffy, if you wero drawing a salary of $1,000,000 a year? Dalo Gear, tho Kansan, now man ager of a Kansas City ball team, mado a baso steal on his follow plavcrs whllo at Chicago, after making a hit witn ono or tho fair ones of tnat city and was called safoby tho preacher. Mrs. Parker, aged 88, at Arkansas City, is cutting her third set of teeth, with tho samo pains sho cut tho firm. For nearly fortv years sho has used falso teeth, but tho now crop has crowded tho artificial ones out ot placo. Whllo the Ottawa Herald is willing to udmlt that tho Democrats may be right in their claim that free trado will kill tho trusts It calls attention to tho fact that hanging is also acknowl edged to bo an unfailing remedy for disease. Samuel Urmy, a traveling sowing machlno tinker, uftor devoting much of his llfo to a successful consumption of all brands of liquors, succumbed under tho effects of 1(1 ounces of lemon extract bought at Noodosha. Ho died in tho street. "Whon tho Kansas City Star says that two of the brightest men in Kan sas edit two of tho dinkiest dallies," the country editors aro torn by ctin lllctlngo motions. Which would you rather bo a successful fool or u fiz zling genius? At a recent girl's party in Atchison, roasting oars woro served and a prlzei given to tho ono who could eat the most. A frail looking girl, with soul ful oyes and an acknowledged yearn ing for Higher Things piled up seven cobs, and won. A car of butter shipped by a Leroy creamery to Chicago was refused. It contained 24 percent of water, where as tho kindly law does not permit the manufacturer to sell over 10 per cent of water to tho butter buyor at twonty cents a pound. Tho Elks in grand lodgo session has prohibited Elk street fairs and and sovoral big lodges aro talking of auanuoning moir goats. Tntro is trouble ahoad for tho "ilnor" who has to explain to his wlfo when ho reaches homo at 4 a. m. Prosldent NlcholB, of tho Kansas State Agricultural Collogo has been olectcd to tho samo position in Rhode Inland's college. Still, the method in farming a flat 040 aero farm differs from that of cultivating tho south oast corner ot a bowlder hill. Wellington Nows: A man at Black- well by the namo of Muchmoro was recontly married to a lady named Muslck. Of courso tho marriage means Muchmoro Muslck but it Is not outside of tho rango ot possibilities that It may mean Muchmoro Muoh-moro. and COMMENTS Old Coronado, tho Spaniard who was hunting gold in Mexico, stopped in Kansas onroute. A statue to his memory as discoverer of tho stato has been unveiled a mile south of Junc tion City. Think of Cory's rotten luck! Ho was within a day's journey of the Kansas shalo fields and didn't know It. Hero is a truo story which tho Em poria Gnzetto vouches for as being two hundred years old and as truo as tho Gospel: "During tho recent high water a Democrat, a Populist and a Republican wero crossing tho Neosho down by the Newman farm In a leaky boat. It wan uerccd that each man should dump his heaviest burden. The Republican dumped his mortgage, the Populist dumped IiIb platform and then the Democrat proceeded to dump the Populist."
