State Super intendent Frank Nelson, chairman of the legislative committee of the State Teachers' association, yesterday Is sued iv circular showing why the bill providing for a two-mill state tax for school purposes should pass. He says: "Statistics on file in the state super intendent's olhce indicate that the state is not giving equal educational advantages to each child of school age. A strong district, under our I present system of tnxalion, is able to I maintain a long tertn of school with n well-equipped teacher nt a low levy, while a weak district, by making the full ley allowed by law, can main tain only u short term of school, and often wilh a poorly paid and Ineffi cient teacher. The state can drt no greater service to 1 he boys nod girls of to-day than to gbe ns such a wise and conservative tax levy for school purHses as will equalize, the burden of taxation anil give to all children of our state equal t'diieational advan tages." "Natlonlsts" nt McCtine, Kan. Pittsburg, Kan., Feb. 5. Women attacked the two joints running nt JlcCuue, 15 miles west of here, and destroyed the furniture and fixtures nt both places.

T. RAILROAD. Predictions That Its Present Independent Position Maj Be Chanced, bat No UrU nltt NUtemeut Yet Made. New York, Feb. 5. Concerning the Missouri, Kansas & Texas railroad the Evening Boat says: "Whatever ar rangements may be in contemplation for changing the status of the M., K. & T. and affecting its relations with other southwestern lines, no defini'e and authoritative statements are yet forthcoming. Thnt its present inde pendent position will be changed theic are many confident predictions by high Authority, but what form the plans will take is not known. The building of the Kansas City Southern materially affected the M K. & T., both companies controlling rout s from Kansas City to the gulf. Since the reorganization of the Kansas City Southern, however, the former keen rate competition has been consider ably modified and both propcrtirs hare been doing well. Any extension of the "community ownership" prin ciple now practically in existence by mutual interests of thte controlling powers in Kansas City Southern, Mis souri, Kansas & Texas and Missouri Pacific will, it is believed, unite all three roads." A retillon Concerning the Philippines Philadelphia, Feb. 3. At the weekly meeting of the Methodist preachers of this city yesterday a petition to President.

It Is probable thnt the trustees of the drainage canal will refuse to permit tlie I'niversity of Wisconsin to hold a scries of boat races on the canal for the reason that the request involves granting per mission to the Santa Fe' railroad to lay tracks on both sides of the stream ulong the course for n period of five miles.
