Rath & Bainbridge QITY DRUG STORE THAT BRIST0W LETTER Which Gives An Idea ol the Writer's Opinion of Leng, Roosevelt, And Tells Volumes In Other Lines The following letter has attracted more lotereit In, Kansas daring tbe past week than anything that has been printed n conneotlop with the present campaign. It is a letter whleb was written by Mr. Bristow to Senator Long, Tbe loiter was read by Senator Long as a reply to charges that Mr. Bristow had made, and it answered those charges as well as a wbole lot of questions which bave been thought of by tbe people of Kansas re garding the two candidates. It is worth reading carefully, for it Is a remarkable document: War Department, Special Panama JUI1 r o a d Commissioner, Washington, May 27th, 1905. Dear Senator: I wrote you briefly is st night. Received your letter today. If there was a vacancy in some desirable office and you or Will White were here the day It was available, the president would appoint me to it, but otherwise no one knows what be might do. He asked me what I wanted. I told him that I did not know what was available. He said be did not know either and for me to see Taft as soon as he re turned. I think I would like to have one of those sdvlsory places on tbe canal oommssaioo. Tbey pay $7,500 and re quire a visit to the Isthmus once In three months. I could hold it and live in Kansas, being there at least half my time and when the fight got hot I could resign. Tbey bave engineers to burn on the commission. There la no reason why Harrod should not be made a con sulting engineer and Tie put in,bis place; or one of the army engineers assigned as consulting engineer and me put injhis place. Tbe only way to bave this done Is through Taft. If he suggests It tbe president will do it I think Taft will like my report; will go over It with him uext week. Could you write him and call bis attention to the advisability of having me in a position to watch tbe commercial end of tbe railroad business and the interests of the shipping public who will have all kinds of complaints to make; and that someone ought to be connected with the commission who is neither a railroad man nor an engineer some one who is a layman andjean meet such complaints better than a railroad man or engineer? lean see a place that eould be made very useful to a man like Taft and the work would be done from Kansas as well as Washington. An occasional visit here Is all that would be be required. They can do,;thi8 consist ently It tbey will. Roosevelt Is very independent and cares very little now for senatorial In dorsement. He will listen to Wbitel think, for be expects the newspapers and magazines to compel tbe Senate to pass his railroad measure. In your letter to Tuft take a strong position. Tell him that the president had no great difficulty in making a place for Wynne; that he promptly took care of Cockrell; and that you notice tbut Murphy, a Bryan democrat, was nicely provided for after tbe commission whs reorganized. I would not hesita'e to call his atten tinn to the fact that you had stood by the administration whenever it needed help, and that you expected to continue to do so, aud that you felt that you hud a right to ak tbut your friend that had rendered he service to the president's edministra tlou that I hud, recognized In a desirable manner, lhe president was Irritated at your seudlug him that clipping. It eon- rmed the prediction that you and I both made to him last winter, and be smarts nder It. The only way to get anything from Roosevelt is to keep at it doggedly and persistently. Foraker irets thlnes because he never lets him rest till he get. II'. He complains, cajoles, and 11 Uteres In writing Taft you can tell bim that you will guarantee tbe longer and better he knows me the better be will like me, and I will see that your prediction is ver. I fled: that If be will make this aonoint. ment and after I bsve served six months If he Is not satisfied that you will see that I resign without the slightest embarrass, ment to bim. Am sorry to trouble you, but this ap pointment, I think would serve a good purpose now coming as it would Just after I have filed my record. You might state J to bim that you are so muoh interested that you will come to Washington If nee- essary, though It would be a great In convenience now since you are preparing to go with him to the Philippines to be gone three months. I will write Will White as you suggest. Sorry that I should bave to trouble you as I have bad to about tbis matter. When I get Into the Senate will help you with some of your troubles and whenlt is accessary to raise tbe d 1 and a few otber things at the White House, you can always put that job on me. I would like to go there occasionally with a big stick and have It out. Hope you ire well. See you bave been to Salina. Sorry I wasn't there. Tours, J. L. BRISTOW. I dou't want you to come here. Write this cote fearing iou might misunderstand my suggestion on tbe otber side. Would rather quit than put you to tbe trouble of coming all tbe way here, and then It would probobly do no good unlese some thing should aocldently happen while you are here. You might further call Taft's attention to the faot that when you were elected senator Kansas bad three of the big bureau officers In Washington, and now it only bad one, and that fact was being commented on by your poll ttcal enemies and tbe friends of Burton, You might also write the presldeot a let' ter about that if you tbink best. Excuse me for these elaborate suggestions. Tbey appear somewhat out of place, but I know you will not mlsuodereund me. Yours, J. L. B. CONTRADICTIONS SEEN IN MAN.

The German army Is looked upon as the model army and the greatest mili tary machine in the world, but In many points the Germans are far be hind other powers, especially is this fact noticeable In their treatment, or I should say, neglect, of their own killed and wounded in the field. On many oc casions the killed have been left for days unburled, and in many Instances the bodies have not been buried at all, but left to bleach In the sun and be come food for vultures. In the opera tions in the Karras mountains against Jacob Morenga, the Hottentot outposts fired on the advancing Germans, killing one man and wounding an offi cer and wto men. The column contin ued to adrance, the wounded being lett behind with oaly two men to pro tect them from the enemy, and it was not until 24 hours later that the wounded were brought into camp. Had the Germans been fighting a civilized power, leaving the wounded behind on the field would not have mattered much, as they would have been well treated had they fallen into the ene my's hands, but with the Hottentots it is altogether different, as they would have slaughtered unmercifully any German who fell Into their hands.

Rector had run the 100-yard dash In 9 2-5 seconds at Charlottesville, Va., in the Southern intercollegiate races, thereby going the distance one-fifth of a second faster than any other human being has ever been credited with running it, he received hundreds of congratu latory telegrams from loyal University of Virginia alumni from all parts of the country. Among them was one from his father, who now lives at Hot Springs, Ark., but who was born in Virginia. The paternal telegram read as follows: "May your head keep pace with your heels in the race of life." Rector read and reread the telegram, and then handed it to "Pop" Ianni- gan, his trainer. The latter perused It with great care. "Well," he ex- ciaimea, you couia give Solomon a handicap and beat him in a walk If It did."
