ke attempt to overthrow
ular government in Kansas
l be so instructive as ereaf
I'tobe set down amonc the
Lings of this passing year.
[7 persons who are actively
Ltred in it are the Governor.
L representatives of the Peo
fe's party in the lower house of
e Legislature.some subordinate
Lte officials who may consider
[eoselves bound by the orders
[ their superiors, and an uncer
L number of citizens. It is
trthcr supported by a part of
[e people of the State-how
Lee a part it is impossible to
Lr but. as all available evidence
[dicates. a small minority,
[eainst it are arrayed the lawful
majority of the House of Repre
btatives. the officers of police
L militia in the capital, and a
Lpulur sentiment which is un
Lstionably predominant in
[aasas, and in the country at
[if all these superior forces ar
Led against the Populist revo
Lion were united in an attempt
Cmaintain an unlawful suprema
|y they might succeed, though
|hey would not deserve to. But
Li reility the advantage of num
[rical strength is increased many
kid by the righteousness of their
[ause. and therefore their confi
lent expectation of victory is
Imply justified. Their physical
Superiority, indeed, is a convinc
ing proof that they are in the
light, for the forces on their
lide include elements which
Itherwise would not be found in
lombination. If the Governor
bf the State were upholding con
stitutional government in Kansas
Colonel Hughes and his militia
Iregiraent would not have refused
[to obey their commander- in -chief.
Eis attitude and orders have not
[obscured the fact that a clear
land undisputed majority of Rep
resentatives holding official cer
[titicates of election organized the
[lower house of the Legislature in
[oppositionto thePopulist minori
|ty, and that everything since
[dono or attempted by that minori
|ty has been done or attempted in
[deflnance of law.
I This experience- as we have
[said, may prove exceedingly
[valuable. The party in whose
[ name and behalf these acts of
revolution have been perpetrat
I ed is the so-called People's party.
ITS NAME IS A FALSEHOOD.
I It claims to be the only existing
[ agency by which liberty and
[ justice in the United States can
| be saved from destruction. Its
| avowed mission is to expiate
| abuses of power; to take the
I Federal and State governments
and all our civil institutions out
of unclean hands, and to put
purity and honesty everywhere j
incontrol. Through its platforms j
and orators it has had an infinite
ileal to say about the robbery
and oppression of the masses,
about all-pervading corruption,
about bribery and intimidation
of voters, about a vast conspiracy
ajainst mankind, and about the
tottering fabric of freedom. And
it has pledged itself to establish
the reverse of all these alleged
conditions. Ostensibly to this
end it has proclaimed variou#
fantastic schemes, and every
policy of administration which is
not in harmony therewith it has
denounced as an instrument of
torture, devised by thieves and
tyrants to crush the toiling mil
lions. It has given to those who
exposed and resisted it no credit
for patriotism or public morality
of any sort, and with special zest
and satisfaction has described
their beliefs and actions as es
sentially treason to popular
It is therefore, peculiarly in
structive to find the representa
tives of this party iu a great
State, where it had an invaluable
opportunity to vindicate its sin
cerity, giving the lie to all its
professions and endeavoring,
first by fraud and then by vio
( lence, to overrule the will of
'he people and supersede the
fundamental law. Such a demo?

Bachel M. Moore ia lying In a danger
ous condition at her home in Millville.
N. J., and is not expected to live. Her
case, which is described ?t length by
the Cincinnati Enquirer, is puzzling a
score of physicians. For twelve years
she carried a snake in her stomach, and
on last Sunday the reptile crawled out
of her mouth. Since that time she has
1 been daily growing weaker and refuses |
all solid food. The fact of Miss Moore
having n snalce in her stomach has been 1
known by her friends for years. In the
summer of 1380 sh'e attended a garden
party near Cedarville, where she then
The party Was given on a 'arm, and
in a spirit of fun Bhe drank ontof u
bucket which was used to hoist water
out of the well. She felt something
slipping down her throat at the time,
but forgot the occurrenec until a year
after, when she and l*er friends noticed
her ravenous appetite. She always felt
hungry, and ate nearly enough for two
persons. She soon felt the moving of
some creature within her, and the oc
currence of her drinking out of the
bucket at the well was remembered.
Physicians were consulted, and they de
cided that Miss Moore's body was the
dwelling place of a snake. They tried
by various methods to kill the reptile,
but without success. As she continued
to enjoy good health, and for weeks at
a time was not bothered by the crea
ture, it was decided best to permit na
ture to take its course, in hopes the
snake would some time come out of its
Years passed on, but the snake con
tinued to make its abode in the young
woman. Once when she ate honey it
crawled up into her month and part way
out between her lips, its body was not
more than a quarter of an inch thielc,
there were no eyes and the general col
or was green. Her mother grasped the
hideous reptile and attempted to pull it
out altogether, but t lu* slimy body
slipped through her hands and down
the girl's throat as though it had been
greased. Miss Moore frequently ate
honey after that in hopes of the snake
again making its appearance, but it
never came up further than her mouth.
A year ago while in bed she was awak
enod in her sleep by something cold
crawling over her breast. She screamed
and the snake quickly drew itself bock
in her mouth and down her throat.
Late Saturday night she was seized
with a choking sensation, which con
tinued periodically during the night,
and early Sunday morning the snake
crawled out of her mouth several
inches. With great presence of mind
she closed her teeth on the body of the |
repulsive creature and ran to her
mother, who succeeded in entirely re
lieving her daughter of the unwelcome
tenant. The snake was fifteen inches |
long, and died a few minutes after be
ing in the air. Miss Moore fainted scv- 1
eral times on Sunday, and during the
night became violently ill. Her stom
ach refuses to hold food except in liq
uid form. She is CO years old and
weighs 185 pounds, and until the pres
