The loud wail which comes from Governor Stubb's office in Topeka, that the brewers, the railroads and the resubmission element have banded together in a "conspiracy" to accomplish the downfall of -the Stubbs regime, is, of course, the veriest nonsense and will fool nobody of sound mind in the state of Kansas or elsewhere. This campaign trick is so clumsy and unskillful in the matter of managerial technique that it is hard to believe it orig inated with so adroit a politician as Governor Stubbs. Perhaps it was one of those surprises that are sprung by the governor's per sonal newspaper organ and which he has been obliged to back up in order to keep peace in his camp. In the past Mr. Stubbs has bad to do many things and accept many responsibilities that were evidently distasteful to his sense of manhood in order to "stand in" with the newspaper that is using him to accomplish its own purposes. Governor Stubbs, through his press agent, complains bitterly that the railroad employes of Kansas are opposing him. This he calls a "conspiracy," and he incidentally rings in the brewers and the "interests" generally. By "interests" the governor means anybody and everybody who is not bis own fervent su. -porter. And now that he finds that many of the railroad em ployes of his state are unfriendly to his candidacy he wails that they have been suborned and corrupted, by the railroads them selves. Mr. Stubbs denies with his hand on his heart that he was ever unfriendly to the rail roads. Why, he wouldn't think of such a thing as doing an in jury to a railroad. It may or may not be true that the railroad employes in Kansas have united their efforts to beat Governor Stubbs. If they have, it shows an intelligent concep tion of their own interests and is in line with the action of rail road employes all over the United States. The fact of the matter is that the sensible railroad em ploye realizes that the vicious and continuous attacks of dema gogues upon the railroads have resulted in reducing railway In comes to the point where it will soon be impossible to pay the em ployes the wages they should receive. The railroad employes not only in Kansas but in Miss ouri and in practically all of the Eastern states have, upon their own initiative and responsibility, formed a propaganda for their own preservation and they are petitioning the lawmaking bodies and the people to allow the rail roads fair rates that they may in turn employ labor at fair wages. There has been no more bitter and unreasonable foe of railroads, and indirectly' of railroad em ployes, in Kansas than Governor Stubbs.. -His" twelfth hour re pentance will avail bin- rc thing cow.

Afterward ho had cause to regret thla precipitancy. When he and Mr. Harknesa arrived at brlarwood they found tho "neatly furnished cottage" supplied noitly with rickety folding eota, broken-down waah-ataada and de crepit chairs, lira. Harkaeea appeared to think this aad state of things en tirely duo to tho fact that aha had not been oonaulted before the sign ing of tho lease. "Oh, well Sato." Harkaasi said, soothingly, "we cam hero for the sim ple Ufa. Tho view la beautiful and the scarcity of furnishings wont In terfere with our having a restful sum mer." "Ton won't find it very restful to walk a quarter of a inllo to tho farm spring every time we want drinking water," she replied. "And the agent failed to tell you that the fireplace smokes like like Vesuvius." "Wo probably won't need many fires. Swimming In the lake will be more in our line." "Yes, but there are so many weeds that I shall be afraid to go Into the water, for rm euro snakes hide there." TU rake them out." said Harkness, who had planned a oomploto rest "Millie you do that 111 work In the garden. Though why the agent should have called that patch of plantain a garden I can't see." "It isn't much of a garden, is It? But there are some nice old-fashioned roses and the view hero Is lovely." The morning after their first night at Brlarwood Mrs. Harkness came to the breakfast table looking pale from loss of aleep. "Now. Fred," she began with a woary little amlle, "before I say any thing else, ni acknowledge that the Brlarwood view is charming. But the most superb view in the world would not conmpensate me for a night like the one I've Just been through. I could almost believe tho house is haunted." "Hauntedr "Yes. I suppose that bell which rang at intervals all night long wasn't audible in your room." "A ringing bell! Why, you must hare dreamed it There lent even a telephone here." "I didn't dream a bell. I heard it Tou don't know how gruesome and weird it sounded." t ' "111 know tonight Kate," promised Harkness. And he Insisted upon ex changing rooms with her. "WtUr she asked next morning. "I heard it all right Hardly slept a wink. I'll get a boy and a ladder from the farm and If that bell isn't a spook 111 find It or know the reason why.". The Harknesses were rellered to discover that the nightly disturbance wae caused by flying squirrels playing around an old disconnected bell In the eaves, which had been used to call former tenants of Brlarwood to the farm for their meals. "Well, I think the agent should have had It taken down," said Mrs. Hark aesti "Oh, by the way, I got a letter from htm thl mprnlng that I haven't read yet" said her husband. 'It may be in answer to one I wrote him the first day telling blm a few facta of which he appeared not to be aware when be inveigled you Into epmlng here." "Ha says," Harkness looked up from the letter, "that aa you are dissatis fied he Is glad to be able to take the place off our hands. He says he has a mm who will buy the cottage If we will give Immediate possession." "Of course," said Mrs. Harkness, "we won't give Immediate possesion after the work we hare done here. Why, you've made the bathing beach fine, and I'm getting the garden in splen did order." "But he wants to sell and hell pay ns for the lease." "Oh, Fred, do let's buy Brlarwood aurselrss." Harknesa looked at bis wife in speechless astonishment "Ton know, Fred, the view Is per fectly beautiful." abe reminded him. "I aaid so all the time."

State Expenses. j The expenses of the state gov ernment, under Govertfor Stubbs are about twice as great as they were before he was elected, and in order to procure such an enor mous sum, Governor Stubbs and his insurgent legislature were cmpelled to enact new and heav ieT tax laws. Among thse new laws which were enacted for the purpose of aiding in overcoming the deficit caused by the extrav agance of Governor Stubbs and his legislature was the inherit ance tax law. Under this law when a man dies and leaves more than $5,000 worth of property, his widow ar.d orphans are compelled to pay an inheritance tax to the state. There are no exceptions to this law. A man may-have paid his taxes one day and died the fol lowing owing no obligation to the state, yet under this law his heirs are mulct according to the yillue of the estate and at the rate named in this Inheritance tax law There is no doubt but the state needs the money, and will need great deal wore if the Stubbs policies are to be tolerated for two years longer. But the tax is an uniust one, and is as vicious 'a piece of legislation as wss ever placed on the statute book, of Kansas. Two years ago Governor Stubbs advocated the law in his campaign speeches, and was largely responsible for his insurgent legislature, elected at that time. Senator Hodges, the iOemo cratic candidate for governor, .was a itaetabcr of the state set '-its t!:jn, and did all in'llsrwer ,t f-rvrrt t'' p.T:.- cf t:l;T?
