Topekt, May S. A cablegram was received from General Frederick Fun ton this morning making the recom mendations for promotion made neces sary by his advancement to brigadier general. The Governor ordered the issue of commissions according to Funston'i recommendations. They are as follows: Major Wilder F. Metcalf of Lawrence to be colonel of the Twentieth Kansas regiment. Captain W. P. Bishop of Salina to be major in the vacancy made by the promotion of Metalf. iirst Lieutenant Daniel F. Craie of Garnett to be captain. Second Lieu tenant fdward J. Hardy of Banna to be first lieutenant. Sergeant Cassius E. Warner of Fort Scott to be second lieutenant. The press dispatches of this morning tell of the death of William A. Metag- gart of Company G. Funston fails to mention his death, but makes another recommendation for promotion, which means that there is a vacancy in the regiment. The promotion is that of John 0. Murphy of Company C. Lea- venworin to De a second lieutenant. Theophilus Little, the father of Lieu tenant Colonel. Ed Little, called on Governor Stanley last night and pro tested against the promotion or any one over the head of his son. He car ried with him a letter from W. F. Law- renoe of Eldorado, national committee man of the Silver Republican party, denouncing the intention of the gover nor to appoint Metcalf instead of Little. Colonel Wilder S. Metcalf was born In Milo, Me. He went to Ohio at an early age and wa.- graduated from Oberlin college in 1878. He came to Kansas in 1887 and went into the land and loan business. In 1897 he was graduated from the law school of the University of Kansas and formed a partnership with W. C. Spangler. In Ohio he got his first military training and rose to the rank of captain of the Ohio national guard. On coming to Kansas he connected himself with Company H of the Kansas guard. He became major, lieutenant colonel and finally colonel of the First regiment of the Kansas National Guard which place he held when appointed major of the Twentieth Kansas. Major Whitman outranked him vb major of the Twentieth Kansas, so by his promotion Metcalf goes over the heads of two men. We have inserted the above extract from the Kansas City Star for two rea sons: first, to show how a promotion from the head of a regiment disturbs the organization all along the line; second, because of the interest our people have in the principal subject of the artiple, Col. W. 8. Metcalf. Being from Lorain county and formerly from Wellingtou, and his wife being here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Or. W. Crosier, during her husband's exile in the antipodes, makes the article pretty good reading for Well'ngtonians. It mar be a matter or surprise to many how Col. Metcalf was promoted over the heads of two officers of the regiment who out-ranked him, viz; Mai. Whitman and Lieut. Col. Little. The explanation is easy. Metcalf was the best military man in the state of Kansas, and when his regiment was in San Francisco so long he taught and drilled the officers and those of oth er regiments who were glad to pay for their tuition. But a weightier reason was that the Major and Lieutenant Colonel mentioned have not merited or gained any prominence in the fighting line of the army at Manila, while Met calf has been in the thickest of the "unpleasantness" and twice wounded, more or less seriously. The next pro motion, if any, will not come from a populist governor but from President Mckinley himself. Spring Good..
