The floral tributes were very select

covered by floral offerings from friends
of the deceased, and a boquet at the
head of the casket, a gift of the King's
Daughters, was singularly tasty and
beautiful. While the temple of elay is
surrounded by the flowers that fade,
the spirit that once inhabited it is
doubtless roaming through fields of
fadeless flowers "just across.the river."

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
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
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
