It L. COLLINS, Editor and Prop. IS8UED EVERY THURSDAY. lu.ared for transrciss'.'jn by mail at second class rates. THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 1899. The "middle of the road" Popu lists held a meeting at Kansas City a few days ago and decided to go it alone, but there is such a few of them they will meet with but little success of entertaining or getting a crowd to hold a meeting. When William Mc Kinky made the statement, "open the mills instead of Ihe mints," was he in earnest? If he was sincere bo cats he sit idly by and encourage the trusts to close h miiU ihronghont :he country and open the mines of the pen.tentiary and crowd into them the poor hnn es' laborers 01 lha defunct miiis? He wai not only a hypocrit when he made the statement, but a liar, de ceiver and a fraud. Honest only with the boodkrswho own him body and soul. As a result of the fight at Alva be tween Rev. Ross, pastor of the M. E. church, and 'Gene Hardwick, a saloon keeper after trying it fist and skull for awhile each one went his way to choose his weapon for a future light. The saloon keeper bought a revolver and the preacher a news paper. The citizens are scared to destraction. They do not know what they are going to hear. It is reported that Professor An dree, the man who started to the N rth Pole, has been heard from: A dispatch from Copeliapnou A-pril 30 last, said information had been re ceived there that day from Iceland, announcing that a bottle containing a note from Andree, the missing Arctic explorer, h?A been found in Polar ice in the neighborhood of Husavick, north of Reikiavik. If som: people iu ll.is wor'd were only n sur.rt aa they 'hink they are ai d ns smooth to cover up their aciious they think they be, they v. lu t . i it ..liead of tfhat the rest of the .vorld think of them. Some people like to be called "smooth," an 1 it gives them the big head to be called that, but if they knew whit was back in ;he minds of those who make such remarks they would cer tainly hide themselves from public gatherings. But such people are built on the contrary plan, think it smart and only want to show themselves the more. Poor insig nificant beings God made them so. They cannot help it. Which is to blame, the poor miserable fool who thinks he is smooth, or the ones who made them what they are? hat paper of the 12 inst: Walter and Flovd Coleman, brothers, are with the Twentieth Kansas in the Philippines. At their home in this city, their 17-year-old sister ja lying at the point of death from want and exposure, while their mother and another sister are on the verge of starvation. These boys were the only support of the family. Mrs. Coleman is a widow. When the war broke out the boys joined the To peka company and went to the Phillip pines. They sent money home regularly while camped at Son l'rancisco, but since they left that place the family has not receieved a cent bom them, while the mother an 1 Hwi ilftnghteti have al most starved to death. ilJOW Itfil arret b : . ou been eKngath i War Cost fMJUtjm.

The treasury dep -.rim-r-t for the last ten months shows expeoditnrea on account of the war department to be $2 10. 7 85, 530, for the lilfj i-prt-ment $55,822,894, miking a total expenditure on account of the war since June 30, 1898, of 066,698,480. The expenditures for the army and navy for April, May and June of 1898, or in the earliest part of the war, were about $40,060,000 above the average, ruuning the total Ir the year ending Aoril 30, 1899, about $300,000,000. There is yet to be added what was expended in makin,' preparation-: before war was declared. The civil ard miscellaneous ex penditures for the last ten months were a little over $100,000,000, and of chis amount a portion was necessi tated by the war. The average annu al expense of the military establish ment for the five years prior to the war with Spain was about $50,000,000. There Are No Moore "Rookies" in Manila, A picket standing 'iprm a stone wall, so that he might g.-l belter aim, suddenly went down i;i a heap, cry ing out, "Boys I've got it:" hot he was up in a minute, bopping ab'iut on one leg, and shouted, "I'll be damned if I cart : I'm not a rookie any more.'' 1 lie had been shot through tho ankle. The "Rookies" is a term applied to the recruits who came to Manila after the fighting, and they have always I been Joshed and shot out of discussion among sold iers with some such slight ing remark as, "What can rookie know ? he wasn't here for a scrap " Well, there aro no more rookies in Manila today.

If the Journal of Topeka would get up a fund to aid the widowed mother and orphan sisters of the privates of the Twentieth Kansas regiment, instead of a sword fund for Little Freddie Funston, people of Wellington and Sumner county would subscribe more freely. The following article was clipped from Fenlmore Cooper's Country. On the banks of the narrow, weedy Susquehanna, a few rods from where it meets the now classic Glimmerglass, dwells the last scion of the Cooper family in a small, cozy cottage built, out of the material of the old Otsego Hall, the lat home of our first great American novelist James Feoimore Cooper. Although a century has passed since the author of the L ather stockirg series tlrst gazed on this wild, wondrous region, and half a century since he looked upon his beloved lake and forest for the last time, in this region nature has lost little of her primeval grandeur.

From "In the Land of the Leatherstockiog Tales," in Dem .treat's Magazine for June. Telephoning Around th: World. Thos. A Edison is ready to build a telephone line around the world. "So far as invention is concerned, the work Is done. It is nut a question of capital," said he in recent interview. "1 have had this scheme of a circum terrestial telephone circuit under consideration since 1870. It involves t cable laid across the Atlantic from Xew Yoik to Southampton, probably, and after passing under the English Channel, a line via Paris, Berlin, Vienna and Constantinople to Cal cutta, India. Thence it would folio v the Chinese Coast to Behrlog straits, wher, crossing to Alaska, it would run southward to San Francisco, and thence back to He York." Mr. Edison ihiuKs It would be impossible to transmit sound through a continuous 3 000 mile stretch of water, and hence would tike ad vantage of the hoals always to be Staid sufficiently near the surface of the Atlantic, here and there, for the purpose. As for the money require), be is afraid to name the amount.
