Supreme Court Sustains Legality af Kanras Statute. Washington. t)oe. 1.?The supreme court of the Unitod States has sus tainrd the validity of tho Kansas act prescrihing elght hours as a lawful days work on all public works and prescribing ponalties for contrartors who permlt or require their workmen to work loncer. The Kansns law, whose validity was called Into question in the suit, was aaactad in Ittl, and provlded that elght hours should constttute a days work for workmen employed by or on behalf of tlio state, or by any county or city or other municipality in the state. It also prohibits contractora from requiring laborers engaged on work for the Btnte to perforra mcre thnn cight hours' labor in a day. Both j fine nnd lmprisonment for any vio!a j tion of the law. The case decided to? day was that of W.W.

RECEIVERS FOR STEEL COMPANY , Susquehanna Could Not Show Finan? cial Results Required. Lanoaster, Pa., Dec. 1.?P. Eckhart ; Slaymaker, of this tity, and C. C. Kauffman. of Columbia. have been ap? pointed receivers for the Susquehauna Iron and Steel Company. The appli cation for the receivershlp was made some time ago by John Q. Denny, of Columbia, and opposed by the faction In control, which is headed by Ex-Sen ator Charles A. Porter ,of Philadel? phia. After the hearing Judge Landis an- I nounced that he would give the man agement until the 1st of January to show tty the court that the business could be operated on a paying basls, and if they failed to do this a receiver would be appointed. Within the p&6t few days representatives of the man- I agement called on Judge Landis and stated that they were willing that a receiver should be appointed immedl ately. Ex-District Attorney Graham, counsel for the management, flled a statemont ln which he said they were convinced they coald not show a finan? cial condition on January 1 satisfactory to the court, and thcrefore prayed that the receiver be now appointed. The boad of the receivers has not yet been Ixed. _ l ROOSEVELT ON POSTAL FRAUDS Loss cf Offlce Not Sufficient Punish mcnt For tho Ouilty. SUGGESTS NiiW LEGISLATION Washington, Nov. 30. ?

"No crime calls for sterner reproba tion than the crime of the corruption ist in public life and of the man who seeks to corrupt him. The brihe giver and the bribe taker are equally guilty. Both alike sin against the primary law of the state's safety. All questions of difference in party policy sink into lnsignificance when the peo? ple of this eountry are brought face to face with a questiou like this, which lies at the root of honest and deoent government. On this questlon and on all others like it we can afford to have no division among good citizens. In the last resort good laws and good ad ministration alike must rest upon the broad basis of eound public opinion. A dull public eonscience, an easy-going acquiescence in corruption, Jnfallibly means debasement in public life, and such debasement in the end means the ruin of free institutiona. Self-govern ment becomes a farce if the representa tives of the people corrupt others or are themselves corrupted.

Sunday another appeal was made by Dowie for funds, but the depositors who appeared were few and tho deposits were chiefty in trivial amounts. Yesterday Dowie asked the members of Zion more urgently than ever for money. He de? clared that he must have 9500,000 without delay. This sum, he said, he was willing to take in short loans, but that they must be forthcoming lmme diately. In the efforts to remedy the condition of affairs at Zion City hua dreds of letters were sent out daily to Dowie's followers in other parts of the eountry. In these leters, in which i glowing prospects of Zion City's fu? ture were painted, and in which Dowie himself is quoted as saying that all : those who believe in him will "follow ', the Lord." all Dowieites are urgod. al- ] most commanded. to sell their farms, | Btjores anji everything else and cojuo i -? * at oace to Zion City and take up Miao; work of the church.
