AGAINST LIBERAL PENSIONS. CoL Dunamore Shows Where the Dent crate Stand en the Penalen Question, Oct Harris of Chicago, the Dense esratle candidate fir Governor of Kaa aa, has been making a great play for (he old soldier vote In Kansas. Tha friends of CoL Harris make the unique claim that be Is entitled to the support or ex-Ualon soldiers for the that he fought la the Confederate army to destroy the Unlon,during the i mi war. col Harris pretends now to be a great friend of the old soldier and his friends claim that practically all the old soldiers are going to vote t'tr him. Just to show that, these statements are not and cannot be true When the old soldiers know the (rata 3. M. Dunsmore, formerly an Intimate associate of Harris In the Popullat Pftrty and therefore Well acquainted with the record of the Chicago colon. I, has written a letter giving a review of Harris record regarding pensions !nring his publio service. It is very I titeresUnf. , The letter Is In part as i lows: "President Roosevelt authorised pea Jon order Nov TS on March II. 1M1 This order was nothing more- thaa a liberal construction of pension acts of cc-ngraas, and by Its terms declared that It should be oonaldered as an evt. eVutial fact that where aa applicant r pension has passed years of age f t ia disabled one-half fa ability to Ik form manual tabor, and so by ciaduetloa to the age , of 16; years, ; v ra tint fact was to be deemed suf ficient for a rating of 112 per month. "The Democratic " party met In St Louis In July, 1904, and true to the general attitude of the party toward Union soldiers. It could not refrain from criticising in Its platform this very Just order by the president as "an arbitrary executive order," and the nominee of that convention. Judge Parker, in his letter of accept ance, referring to pensions and the Democratic platform said, 'It denied the right of the executive to usurp the power of congress . . , Such usurp ation was attempted by pension order No. 78, and effect has been given to It by a congress that dared not resent the usurpation.' "Here we have Judge Parker charg ing President Roosevelt with an of fense for which If guilty he should be Impeached. "At that convention Mr. Harris was an active supporter of Judge Parker, both before and after his nomination end was himself a candidate for vice president as a Parker man and sought the support of the Kansas delegation but was turned down by that body, even Mr. Farrelly refusing to support him, and Mr. Johnson declared that lie for one would Vote forever and eternally against such a man,' refer ring to Mr. Harris' support of Judge Parker, and his very evident Wall street backing. The Democratic convention held at Topeka on April 25 of this year, by its platform Indorsed every line of this soldier-hating platform of 1904. And now we find this Parker Democrat from Chicago, Mr. Harris, and the Brownie statesman from Shawnee county, Mr. Overmyer, going about the state proclaiming themselves special friends of the old soldiers and asking their votes." ANOTHER "ISSUE" GONE. Governor Hooh Shews that no Text Books Havs Been Adopted Under His Administration. Governor Hoch has taken the wind out of the text-book Issue Col. Harris of Chicago and the Star of Kansas City, Ma, have attempted to raise la the Kansas campaign by- citing these non-residents to the very patent fact that the text-book commission he ap pointed has never held a meeting, that It has never adopted a book or. any one of Its members drawn a penny In compensation. Therefore if Kansas la being robbed by the book trust which It Is not Governor Hoch and the pres ent administration can not be blamed. Under the present law school books are adopted tor terms of Ave years. There hare been no expirations ol contracts during Governor Hoch's term No contracts will expire dur ing his 8 rat term. Therefore nothing now fa fore oa the school book prop osition can be charged to Hoch. The Governor did appoint A B.

Mr Overmyer Indignantly dunles being a "flopper" but makes no effort to cite facts regarding bis changes of fro.it which would relieve him from suspic ion. On the other hand evidence that be has a new Issue and a new opinion for each campaign are continually coming to light - . In 1894 Overmyer was the" stalwa-t candidate for Governor on an antl-pro-hlbltlon and anti-equal suffrage plat. form. To his candidacy was due the defeat of Governor Llewelllng for re- I election. This year Overmyer Is i Democratic candidate for attorney gen eral on a prohibition platform in 1 claims that he will certainly enforce the prohibitory law In the remot i event of his election. He now say-i that the failure to enforce the prohibi tory law In certain localities now la the fault of the Republican . official' In 1S94 he held that the law could ne t be enforced la localities where a ma jority of the people did not favor Its enforcement. He even went farther In that campaign- and said that the pro- hlbitory law should not : be enforced In communities where a majority the people did not favor Its enforce ment. Now he has entirely change! front and says he can enforce the law everywhere. In one of his 1894 speeches Over myer made the following statement in support of his contention that the law could not be enforced in the face of strong sentiment against it: "We submit to obnoxious laws be cause we are compelled to; not from choice. If the law making power is a despotic monarch be had behind hln. hi army tc compel obedience to hi will. If the law making power is the majority It has Its superior muftbers and greater power to enforce Its will. But suppose the majority should -be non-combatants and the minority should be combatants would the min ority obey the law? Not if it did not suit them to do so." ; v In that speech Overmyer character ised the prohibitory law aa entirely evil and used an elaborate set of u i ures to prove that It did not represent the sentiment of a third of the voters of the state. To this fact, as he term ed It, Overmyer ascribed the fallurn to effectually enforce the law In all the larger counties of the state. Tula portion of his speech was as follows: Now I want to say to you in the first place that owing to the s peculiar nature of the constitution of Kansai that provision was voted Into the con atitutlon by less votes than a majority of all the voters of the state. It ras not Illegal for that reason because the conatltitlon provided that I might be amended by a ma jority of the voters voting upon the amendment; but In ord'r to show what sort of sanction this thing has ever had I want to call your attention to a Uttlo scrap of ancient history. Ia that election General Garfield received 121,520 votes; General Hancock re ceived 59,680 votes; . Weaver, 19,710, scattering 25; total votes 201,045; for prohibition, 92,502, against prohibition 84,304; total 178,606; excess of presl dentlal vote over prohibition vote 22,439 votes: votes for prohibition less than majority of all votes cast 8.

Old Jim Buller had Just run up In his private car lolanthe to see how his main line extension was getting along "Nlshlmyl" he called to the porter, "Nlshlmy! Where is .that Jap 7" The boy came in panting. "Engineer saying bridge gone, sa Large water coming down last night and sweeping it away." "That new bridge!" groaned Buller 'Only finished two months ago! There's your J. HampUn Snell youf fancy chief engineer for youl" ' Don't papa," said Iris, who had been president of the president of the Great Western ever since her mother died, anji to whom Snell, the chief en gineer had been a hero from the first day oa which she had set eyes on his heavy face with Its ' gray-sprinkled beo'd. "Mr. Snell couldn't have fore-se- such a thing. Must have been s regular flood." The chief engineer was superintend ing tha work of construction at the front, 62 miles away. Jim Buller wired him aa follows: ' "Rush In whole camp by four o'clock. Don't lose a second. , Trains must be running over bridge by to-morrow night Imperative!" . The next afternoon at four o'clock a light engine panted np to the other side of the canyon and Snell got out and walked sedately Into the Pres- snce. 'Very, very sorry," the chief engin eer said, "but the bridge was under mined. It was'' Well, It shouldn't have been," was the president's curt cut in, "If It had been built right" "That's Just what I was going to say, and I think Miss BuUer will bear me out" The chief nodded towards Iris, who sat up stra ght among her pillows. "She beard me say I wanted to go ten feet farther down for the nsiddle pier; but the exigencies, the rush of the work, wouldn't permit' Yes, I heard Mr. Snell say that" admitted Iris, who. to help out her Ti easW treat Pert feaerMaa Se.

The bridge has to go b'aderstaadr" 1 do," said the chief seguest, whose dignity was plainly raffled by the bntsque wards, "end i;m going to proceed 'with the plans as soon as'lny train comes in. That's the whistle now. I'll put Esmond, O'Reilly and Scbultz right to work just as soon aa we can get our measurements." There was very little sleep In the luxurious lolanthe that night Early In the morning Iris arose and went out to find her father amid a little group of men. There stood Snell, O'Reilly, Schultz, Esmond and another man, the sight of whose face, under the glare of the big reflector, made her pause. "Archie Jennings! What in the world Is he doing here 7" - She had not seen Archie for three whole years years in which he had been dead and burled lo her. But she had known him well enough at Stan ford, where they had been to many "frat" dance together. In fact there had been a time when there had been a sort of understand ing between them. He had begun an engineering course at college. She had been enthusiastic over his chances In life. Well she remembered how he had gone over all his plans with her a very studious little coed. 8hs re membered how hard he hid struggled with the terrible physics, and how, finally, near the clcse of the freshman year, the awful "math" had made him "flunk out" He had told her, after the tragedy, that ha was going to study engineering alone, to get all the expedi ence he could that the self-taught men were the most practical engineers after all. He had been all very well as a work ing college man, but as a "flunk-out her ambition, honestly Inherited from her pushing, driving father, would not permit her to accept him. And now as he stood there, a mere Inferior, listen ing to the words of his chief and of the consulting engineer, she was not aware of any revival of that old Inter est But aha a Mild not restrain the Impulse of a bow and a tew conven tional words of recognition. Immediately after, Iris and her fath er went over to the lolanthe and Bul ler fumed away, the desperate hours, touching his bell every few minutes and demanding a fresh cigar from Nlehlma. After luncheon he marched Iris off with bun to the engineer's oar. looking fretfully at the great tin bridged chasm as he went and wincing at the eight of a large gang of Idle Irorkmen. She heard her father say In tones men sne knew were forcedly calm: "Well. It's bmr o'clock, Mr- Basil, and I don't see no signs o' your bridge. There ain't a timber ha place. You know It was to be all done by to night That would be-say, four hours." . . ,.' On, we re working right along," she heard Snell say. "Take a seat sir. Here Is the design, Mr. Buller. Of course It's only a makeshift structure. not a piece of professional bridge ar chitecture, by any means." Two minutes of ominous, eloquent silence, and then the cloudburst Look here, Mr. SaeU," her father roared out at last "yon haven't caught em to my Idea from the first! I ask yoo for a bridge, and yon giro sae a blue print Tou're good enough at fin-gere. but It ain't figgers that I want want to sea the trains runs In' over that canyon before dark to-night!" Now look here, everybody. I want to know ft there's a man la this ear that eaa amp aa, grab his hat and go right oat and build that there brides by to-morrow morning. There's 109 a-eettia' over there oa them fiat ears a-eofn" Bothu'. aa' there'll be more here from the front ia aa boar aa' a bait Now, who's Us oaaRf" ' For a moment no one stirred. Thea from the farther end of the car Arch Jennings' thin, bronsad face sad keen eyas beat forward. A pencil of soa llabt streaked across bis seuara. maa terfnl cam and his prominent Boas as he rose aad aaM detarnaiaedly: . "Mr. Buller, I can do It. Let ate have a chance at the Job." "You're the first one to speak," said) Buller, glancing toward the young fel low, "so I guess you're the man. Let's see, what's your name?" ' "Archibald Jennings." The two passed out, passing Iris os the platform. Iris bowed a little stiff ly to Archie as he turned by her. For she resented the fall of her hero, though she would have owned readily enough that he had presented himself in rather a poor light You understand," she heard her father say as he turned away from the young man, "the whole line Is at your disposal. I'm lookin' to you for every, thing." Iris was up at five the next morning. It was Just daylight The donkey en gines had ceased their braying and the canyon was still. Archie Janntng " came whirling toward the lolanthe oa a pulsing motor car. His face looked a little drawn, but there was a tri umphant gleam In his gray eyes. He saw Iris standing on the platform. Good morning," was her glad greet. Ing. "How la the work getting on 7" "Come and see," he said. She seated herself and they whined , down the track to the - edge of the chasm, and all In a moment they shot ' out above the canyon, the wheels fly- Ing over the new-lald rails. Iris caught her breath. Oh," she said, with just a shade of terror In her tone. "Isn't It magnifi cent! And It's all : finished clear across all in a night . You're a won der, Archie a wonder! Won't papa be r pleased?" ..; i- . They crossed overt and when they re- turned to the other side there stood the lolanthe, with the engine behind! her, not far from tha edge of the bridge, with Buller and Snell out oa i the front "platform, Buller full of the triumph of It all, Snell cool and crIU-i cel.- -i - "There's going to be a dangerous lag In the central span," said Snell. Let her sagl Get aboard here, you folks," called Buller to Archie and iris. "Let them lift your car off, Jen nings. We're goln' to run across." "But the strains weren't calculated," ' Jerked out Snell. The whole affair la empirical dangerous. The test Is too great Excuse me. If I get off." He sprang from the last step. The lolanthe ground over the new rails, the engine puffing slowly. . The Umbers creaked a little as they settled to the strain of tha tremendous weight of the great car and engine. Thumpt thump! resounded the wheels. . , "A high Jolnf said Buller. "Here we are oa the middle span. Hooray I She's steady as a rock. Where's your eag, Mr. J. Hampton Bnelir He gave the signal "taster," and the car flew ' across tha bridge. "Olt onto that sid ing right away I" he yelled to the en gineer whea they were over. They trundled upon the aiding, and Archie tarted to leave the car.. . 'Hold on, Mr. Jennings," said Bui. lr, seizing the young man's arm. "I -want to say somethln' to yoo.
