Three prisoners escape"! from the peni tentiary at midnight last night. They were Robert Johnson, alias I'l.sr. alias Young; J. A chase and James Scott, colored. Scott .is a trusty who was left In the power house .it night. He simply ran off. He had but three months to serve. Johnson and Chase cut two Iron bars In two and - aped through a seven itici opening Into the .ird. Then they climbed the rope tli.it raises and lowers one of the bis gates anil with it lowered themselves to the ground. This they did while the guard v.as eating Ids midnight lunch Inside the tow rhouse on the wall. A third prisoner was caught by the guatd In the act of si .lilng the wall. Chase was caught at Tit ton to-day and returned to the peni tentiary at noon. Johnson was serving A twelve year sentence from Kansas Cltjf for robbery Johnson, whose correct name Is Frank AAalby. with his pal. Joseph Hatton. ter rorized the people of Kansas City during the wint-r of 1S9I-3 with numerous holdups and burglaries. They wore described by every one with whom they came In contact as the "long and short" men. Walby was tall and slim while Hatton was short. During December. January and February tiiey comrillted twenty robberies in the two Kansas Cttys. Their plan was to walk irto a store or shop just before closing up time in the evening and. locking the door liehir.d them, proceed at once to the rear of the store, where they would hold up the cashier with drawn revolvers. They never wore masks and every person who was robbed or held up gave the police a like description of the outlaws. Walby's face Is deeply pitted with smallpox scars and It was easy to give his description. He had a vicious looking face, his upper lip stand ing apart with u decided snarl, his long teeth gleaming through his thick mus tache. Hatton had rather a pleasant look ing face and generai.y wore a smile upon it while at work. Both men dressed well while in Kansas City anil always had plenty of money. They frequented the theaters and saloons. Most of their work was done on the outskirts of the city, but ns the- grew bolde. they worked toward the enter of the city. They resided with Mrs, J. F. Roberts at 1638 Jefferson street, telling her they were railroad men out of employment. For over two months, "Walby and Hatton escaped the police and all their efforts to capture them. Chief Speers instructed all the men to lay aside routine work and capture the "long and short" men. On Saturday evening. February 16. ISM, Captain Phillips and Inspector (then De tective) Hayes were standing near Twelfth street and Grand avenue. Detective Cahill, of Kansas City. Kas.. was talking with them. The night was bitter cold and the reports of two robberies committed by the "long and short" men that 'evening had al ready reached the police. Two men passed the officers, 'who were all in citizen's clothes, going south on Grand avenue. "When Hayes saw the men he whispered to 1'hllllps, "the long and short men." Walby and Hatton were Intently gazing Into the shop windows, ablaze with light, and did not see the men, who were Intently watch ing them. Hayes and Phillips and Detective Cahill followed the suspects to LeRoy Carton's jewelry store, at ISHs Grand avenue, where they stopped and gazed Into the windows. Each had on an overcoat and kept his hands In their side pockets. They stood close together, chatting and laughing. When the officers closed in on them, Hayes stepped between Walby and Hatton. and. giving the latter tho "shoulder." separated them and forced him against the building. At the same time he placed his revolver ) against nation s btorrach and with his left hand secured the hand In Hatton's right coat pocket. It was clasped uround a big revolver. Hatton also had a revolver In his left hand pocket, but Hayes was too strong for him, and by a quick movement on his part prevented him from using the weapon. When Hayes had tackled Hatton. Captain l'liilllps stepped up behind Walhy and placed a hand In each of his overcoat pock ets. This prevented him from using the two revolvers he was tightly grasping. Cahill went to Phillips' assistance and they soon disarmed Walby. taking three revolvers from him. Then they turned their attention to Hayes, who was having a struggle with Hatton. The cold muzzle of a revolver placed against Hatton's ear caused him to desist and he was quickly disarmed. They were taken to Central police station, where after several days they made a confession to Chief Speers. They were Indicted by the November grand jury on several charges of burglar) and highway robliery- Hatton pleaded guilty and was sentenced to ten years In the penitentiary. Walby took a change of venue to Independence on the ground that he would prove an alibi. When the jury had been chosen he suddenly with drew his plea of not guilty and entered one of guilty. He received a sentence of twelve years. While In jail here Walby made several at tempts to escape. He broke the bars in his cell, by hitting them with a bunk rod. when the lever to throw open the jail was used. The noise of the lever drowned out the nolsr of Walby's striking the cell bars and be suit-ceded In breaking several bars lie fore he was found out and his hands placed in cuffs each day until he was taken awav. He swore to kill every one of Marshal Stew art s deputies when he was released from the penitentiary. Walby came to Kansas City from Jeffer son Citv. where he served a sentence for burglarv and grand larcenv. Hatton was a railroad man in St. Louis before becoming o highwayman. CURRENT EVENTS.

Yonngest OI"d Soldier In Knnn I n Siintn Ke Employe nt Topekn. Topeka. ICas., May 29.-(SpeclaI.) The To peka Mall and Breeze says: Probably the joungest enlisted man In the service of tho United States during the rebellion lives In Topeka to-day. Necessarily the young est man In tho army must have been a drummer, for boys who could not make the mustering officers believe they were at least IS years old were not accepted in tho ranks. Thomas J. Foy was a drummer boy. Ho was mustered into the United States service as a drummer on September II. 1SC0. in Company G. Fifth Vnlted States infantry. As he was born July IS. 1513, his ago at the date of muster was 11 years. 1 month and 27 days. His enlistment was for the period of live years, and he was discharged on September H. IMS. The Fifth regular Infantry was located at Fort De fiance, A. T.. near the New Mexico line, at the time Mr. Foy enlisted, and the regiment was kept in the West during the civil war. While the regiment was lighting Indians most of the time during tho reliellion, it was engaged In three battles with Confed erate forces one at Hgeon's ranch, one at I'aralto and one opposite Fort Craig on the Rio Grande. Mr. Foy saw some severe serlce for a. mere boy. seldom enjoying the luxury of a ted or cot. and frequently without tent covering, but he was near his father, and that was some consolation. The elder Foy was in the Mexican war and remained In the regular service for twenty-one years, suving in the Third. Seventh and Fifth I nlted States Infantry- He was in the Fifth when young Foy enlisted as a. drum mer, and came to Toneka in 1ST. and is now renosinsr in the Toneka cemeterv. Mr. Foy has lived In Topeka since 1,. and has been In the employ of the Santa Fe rnll teail ever since the lirst shovelful of earth was put into the road. He Is now In charge of the material yards In the track depart ment. Is a man of family, draws si pen sion of fS a month under the new law, and Is a member of Topeka post. o. A. K. Ho says he has only heard of one boy who was younger than himself when he enlisted a drummer boy from Iowa, but he enlisted later In the war. In point of. date of enlistment and length of service during the war. Mr. Foy is undoubtedly entitled to the credit of being the youngest enlisted soldier of the rebellion. MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVED.

FOLK BLATANT POPS MEET IX CIR11 STOXE COXFEHEXCE. Discover That AH They Know Almiit Kansas Freight llntc It That They Are Too lllch llltx of Iviiikiih Political Gosip. Topekn, Kas., May 29. (Special.) Perched upon the broad stone railing that sur rounds the entrance to one of Topeka's best hotels was an assemblage of dis tinguished JCansas Pops who imagined that the destinies of the downtrodden massca of Kansas depended entirely upon their political Judgment and wisdom in running the affairs of state. As they whittled away and s'liilrted tobacco juice at a crevice in the stone sidewalk they discoursed upon various political questions of great mo ment. First, they tackled flat money, and after reaching a conclusion on what should be don In that matter, proceeded to adju ;t the land question. Thin the issue of municipal ownership of public utilities was solved, aid a plan evolved that would make the sub-treasury scheme a success. Finally the burning question of the day was reached maximum freight rates. This question causes a certain class of Populist orators to shed their coals, vests and col lars and crack the empyrium with seething eloquence such as Is uttered only In the actual presence of the great red dragon. John Leedy. govei nor of Kansas, gravely pulled his gray goatc . and, with one eye closed in llery meditation, exploded: "I Ml you what it is, gentlemen; when us Kansas farmers are so deeply mortgaged that a post auger Is needed to bore holes through the mortgages in order to plant corn, the time has arrived for tho common masses to rouse from their lethargy and cuib the soulless corporations which arc sucking the life blood from us and which ore responsible for the hellish conditions which environ us. This, gentlemen, is the problem confronting us. The only solution is to curb the railroads these monster creations of law which take ur hogs and cattle by the throat and force one to go Into Its coffers that another may be sent to market. The remedy is a, maximum freight law." "By the way, governor, what are the rates on stock and farm products from your town to market?" put in one of the whlttlers. "Damlino. Haven't shipped anything since I joined the Pop party. Been too busy trying to help the other poor devils out to raise anything myself." "It's a great cause we're Interested In." chipped in Representative W. F. Brown, of Pratt, the wild-eyed maximum rater. "We will be looked upon ns patriots some time after we are dead. It's relief the masses must have. Whv. us farmers are wor-se than slaves. It takes all of our crops to pay the freight tc market. We simply give the roads a warranty deed to our stuff when we load it and If that ain't enough when It gets to market we give them a mortgage on our farms for the balance." "Hpw terrible." remarked another. "How much have they robbed you out of?" "Oh! they never caught me. I'm to slick for 'em. I'm one Pop who fooled the blasted roads. You see I never raised anything to ship. Smoot'i game, t-h? I got a better business. I am the business manager of a jack. The only time I pat ronize them Is In traveling, and they don make anything off me ihere cither, fir I ride on a pass." "Well, really." drolled Senator George Campbell, of Labette, "the people are i-i a terrible condition. Something must be done to alleviate the suffering of our people. Tho present surroundings which environ and In a great measure Intimidate our citizens and depress the Individuality of our peo ple must change. The exorbitant freight rates must be diminished, as Brother Leedy suggests. Wo must have a. maximum freight rate law." "You reside at Parsons?" asked one ot the listeners. "I do." "What rate do ypu pay on freight from there to market?" "Ah em Ah Well, really. I don't know. You see I'm no shipper. Fact is. I rever shipped a car of freight In my llfy. Camo West when there wa'nt any railroads and have stayed right here. I'm a lawyer. I am. When I go anywhere I ride on passes. I know we want a maximum freight rate law, though, because Brother Leedy says so." "I want to second all that has been said here." broke In Senator Mose Housenolder, of Cherokee, the champion pussy-wants-a-corner player of Kansas. "The time has come for the sla-es to rouse. We must have a new declaration of Independence. Then we'll be freed from tho grasp of these ravenous corporations." Ana now are tne ireignts tram your place to the market?" was asked. "1 can't tell without looking it up. You see I don't ship, either, and have never given the roads a chance to rob me. I live down there In a mining district. The railroads run the most of the mines and I sell all my surplus products to their men at a good big figure. So you see Instead of the roads getting all ot my mony, I get nearly all the money I have from the roads that Is from their employes. Great scheme, ain't It?" After the four most radical maximum freight rate Popa In Kansas had llnis'hed their tales of woe, the heavens wept and tho "box" party disbanded. In cleaning out an old state house desk tho other day. Taylor Riddle found a re port of tho secretary of state for 1SCT.. It contained only sixteen pages and an elc tion table. R. A. Barker was secretary, and he Informs Governor Crawford that with few exceptions the census returns are In and ho hopes to be able to lay the re sults before the legislature when it meets. Though tho report Is dated December 13. he reports the Journals and session laws of IWo as still in the hands of the binder at Leavenworth. Contracts had been let to J. F. Cummings. John Speer anil Mae donald & Baker for tho printing nnd bind ing for 1VCC, but the price Is not given. Most of the report is taken up with a list of agricultural college lands selected. Th" election table discloses a string of well known Kansans. Sol Miller beat Abram Bennett for the senate by forty-two votes. There were six vacancies tilled In the sen ate. In the election of the house. G. W. Glick was beaten In Atchison by E. K. Blair. Atchison county had live members of the house, as did Doniphan, while Leav enworth had nine members and Douglas eight. Ira J. Ijicoek and Chase E. Parker represented Brown county. Waller N. Al len showed up from Jefferson. John K. Rankin from Douglas, C. K. Holliday from Shawnee. Jim Snoddy from Linn, Jacob Stoller from Lyon. J. M. Harvey from iti ley. W. A. Phillips from Saline. William Martindale from Greenwood, and T. M. O'Brien from Leavenworth. Wyandotte county was a small affair with only ift! otes. represented by Isaiah Walker. Fred Willhouse vu a memlier from Leaven worth, which polled the largest vote In tho state. There is nothing about. the report to show who printed it. but it would go now as a very rocky job from a countiy printing office. Senator Forney, of Sumner county, after a conference with Governor Leedy. left or home to-day to get up. a meeting to "In dignate" against the traitors In the Popu llt party who refused to support u railroad bill with a clause containing a maximum schedule last winter. Forney is after Sen ator Jumper's scalp. He thinks Jumper blocked the plans of the Irfedy crowd of Populists last winter in reference to rail road legislation In tho senate. But from all reports from both Osage and Sumner counties Jumper will be a. member of the state senate long after Forney Is retired from politics. There Is a growing sentiment among Fop ulists throughout tho state who do not Im mediately surround the pie counter that Bob Semple Is the man to head the Populist state ticket next year. They argue that If Bob can't pull the party through no one else can. If he should consent to permit hi name to bo used in connection with the gubernatorial nomination. Brother Leedy would probably be compelled to be satlslicd without a "vindication in the shape of a renomlnatlon. Xo Fusion In Slinwncc. Topeka, Kas.. May 29. (Special.) Tho Shawnee county Pop committee at a meet ing to-day repudiated fusion with the Dem ocrats, and decided to put up a middle-of-the-road Pop county ticket for this fall's campaign. The Pop city committee of To peka. held a meeting also and adopted tcs- L olutions demanding the removal of the local police commissioners by Governor l'edy. Slnte Flower jlrds Illlided. Topeka.

The Security bank, of Wellington, with a cap ital stock of ja.OjO. was granted a ch-.rter to-day by the secretarv of state upon rec ommendation of the state bank commis sioner. MI'SIC AXD THE'DItAMA. "Mary PennlnstonSSplnster." which was seen at the Coates last' night. Is a comedy written in tlie first place to supply a starring piece' for MUs Cayvan. and In the second place to demonstrate that there are still some things that the old man can do better than the new woman. In both his purposes tlie author, Mr. W. R. Walkes. has succeeded fairly well. Mary IVnnlng ton, thanks to this dramatist's discretion and to Miss Cayvan's good sense, is In no wise a mannish woman. She is convinced that women should be given equal oppor tunities with men in the Industrial world and that they should be paid equal wages when they perform like duties. Incidental ly, she believes that she is entirely com petent to handle her late father's mill business, although she finds it necessary to take a partner in order to divide the burdens, insisting, however, that she shall always be ree-ognized as the senior mem ber of the firm. Incidentally, too, she brings up her cousin and prote-ge. Prudence Bering, to abhor frivolity, smother senti ment, sit down on emotion and apply her self to higher education as a religion. She believes in marriage only as a sort of Pla tonic convenience, to be recognized by some as-a desirable expedient, and she In stills this faith into Prudence. She does not consider marriage for herself, but when its particular advantages are pointed out to her sho mnkes her own proposal and much In the same spirit that she would discuss a scale of wages. Convention alities that conflict with these theories are, in tho eyes of charming Mary Pennington, false conceptions of life. The processes of a very pretty story aid the philosophical observations of the old family physician reveal Just where the false conceptions lie. and Mary finally confesses her mistakes and gives her heart and Prue's heart a. chance for their beats. This Is a mild sort of a problem play, but like others of its class it frequently .be; comes argumentative when It should be active. Fortunately, Mary Pennington's eccentric theories do not conflict with her excellent tasto In dress and her apprecia tion of style. As presented by Miss Cay van. the character Is an entirely sympa thetic one. The impersonation is one of the most graceful, subtle and charming that she has yet given. Miss Jerrold's representation of tlie perplexed, top heavy Prudence Is especially artistic and effective. Mr. Woodward's Dr. Hale is a generally commendable characterization. A bad makeup rather spoils Mr. John's Geoffrey Armstrong, which is a sort of ;t thankless part at best. Mr. Thropp nnd .miss hutnerianil are well cast in tnts play and both meet their requirements with complete satisfaction. Last night's performarce closed Miss Cayvan's season. The company will leave this morning for New ork. AUSTIN I-ATCHAW. "Excelsior. Jr.." which was seen In this city earlier In the season, will return to the Grand for a week's engagement, opening Sunday. Juno ;, with Sadie Martinot In the role originally assumed oy Corinne. The other members of the company will remain as before. Among them are Joe Cawthorn. John Page, Nellie and Ethel Strickland, Carrie Behr and Neil McNeil. EXCITING RUNAWAY.

The home products exposition will open at 10 o'clock next Tuesday morning In the live story building at 1221 and 1223 Main street. The applications for space insure a very full representation of local manufacturers, and the success of the enterprise is already as sured. Only those things which are actual ly made In Kansas City will be exhibited, but the exhibition will illustrate not only what is made here, but how It Is, made. A great deal ot Interest has been manifested, and the manufacturershaveentcredlntothe spirit of tho event with enthusiasm. Kan sas City's manufacturing resources will be very effectively illustrated during the ex position, which will last fiom June 1 to 12, Sundays excluded. There will be many surprises during the exposition. The people of Kansas City do not know just what Is made here. They Im port 3cores of articles and products for no other reason than that they do not know these things aro made here. This exposi tion Is for tho purpose ot showing Just what is manufactured In Kansas City, and in this instruction lies the chief value of the enterprise. All the arrangements for the show have been made, except the finishing touches. Tho exterior decorations of the building have been completed, and the work of pre paring the booths and the Interior for the reception of tho public is being pushed forward rapidly. The building will be open to-day and until midnight to-morrow to enable exhibitors to have their booths in readiness for the opening of the exposition at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning. The Main street front of the building has been artistically draped with bunting, with the seal of the state of Missouri shown from the second story and the seal of Kan sas City just below the roof. The interior decorations consist largely of those de signed to make the Individual booths of exhibitors attractive, and are as varied as aro the minds of the exhibitors, yet the general effect, even at the present stage of uncompleted development, is such as to ap peal to artistic taste. The finishing touches which remain to be put on the work of the decorators, and the artistically displayed exhibits to be put In place before to-morrow night, will greatly enhance the beauty of tho Interior appearance.

Every Convenience. Tho executive commltteo of the Home Products exposition has spared no expense In endeavoring to contribute to tho con venience and comfort ot the puuuc. A completo telephone exchange will bo exhibited by the Missouri and Kansas Tel ephone Company, which is done for the convenience of exhibitors and visitors, and any one desiring to communicate with any of tho exhibitors can do so without loss of time. This exhibit will be one of tho great features of the exposition. The committee has advised the exhibitors that K. J. Davidson Is the official photog rapher of the exhibits, and under his con tract he Is compelled to make a picture of every exhibit in tho building. These pictures will be compiled in a handsome album and will bo presented to the Com mercial Club, nnd will become an adver tisement for the exhibitors in the first annual Home Products exposition of Kan sas City. No official souvenir has been authorized, and no advertisements except ing those presented by exhibitors will be permltti-d In the building or about tho premises. The most Important of the rules and regulations which the executive committee has announced Is that all visitors on entering the building must take the elevators to the fourth floor and walk down stairs, viewing the various exhibits via that route. No one will be permitted to walk upstairs or to ride down, and this rule will be rigidly enforced. Chief Val Hns, of the police department, has tendered the services of five policemen, who will be stationed at tho stairway to see that this rule Is enforced. Chief Hale has commis sioned Ova men from the fire department to patrol the' building with Babcock extin guishers to prevent any conflagration orig inating from the carelessness of exhibitors or visitors. In addition to this, the executive commit tee will have under the control of tho gen eral management directors of Its own and private detectives, who will arrest anyone found pilfering. Tho night watchman will be on guard every night, and the Commer cial Telephone Company has placed signal boxea throughout the building. The ex hibits aro likely to bo a surprise not only to the people of Kansas City, but to all who visit here. The officers of tho Com mercial Club announce that as this Home Products exposition was promoted by the Commercial Club, which unanimously In dorsed It by resolution of Its members, that organization will tako great interest In everything which pertains to the exposi tion, and will do all it can to encourage its motto, "Make Kansas City a good place to live In."

COOLDIAMOND TKIEF FOILED TRIES TO SHOOT HIS PlilSlER, BIT CARTRIDGES FAIL TO EXPLODE. Then Ilnnd Ilnck III Plunder nnd Milken Good ill Encnpe Ileninrk- nlily Dnrluir XVnrk on u. llulne Street. A nervy thief, clearly a professional, with slight aid from a confederate, came wlthm an ace of seeming $300 worth of diamonds frcm LeRoy Gaiton. a jeweler at 1231'i Gi.-nil avenue, yesterday afternoon. He attempted the old. but slick, trick ot sub stituting an empty envelope for one con taining the diamonds. Suspicious of his customer, Mr. Garton at once detected the swindle, chased the thief into the street and for half a block and grappled wltn him only to let htm go when the diamonds had been restored to him. Although the exciting episode occurred on a business stteet nnd Mr. Garton kept yelling for help at the top of his voice, the bold thief es caped. A well dressed man entered Carton's store Friday afternoon and said he wanted to tuy some diamonds, describing two stcres of about the value of $300 which he desired. Garton did not have the stones In stock. bi.t promised to procure them and the man said he would return Satur day nt 4 o'clock. Garton was Just enter ing his store yesterday afternoon at that hour with the diamonds, one mounted and one loose, when his prospective customer came up. Garton stepped behind the counter and displayed his diamonds. Th.i man examined them carefully and said they would suit him. He drew a small yellow envelope which was filled with cot ton from his vest pocket and deposited th? stones in it. Then taking out his pock etbeck, was apparently ready to pay the bill of J300. He had carelessly placed the envelope containing the stones In his pecket. AA'hen he counted his money he pretended that he found it $J0 short. "AA'ait till I step around to a saloon and get a check cashed," he remarked. In a. matter of fact way. "Don't go out with my diamonds In your pocket," said Garton, a the stranger started away. The man turned back with a look ot surprise on his face and with a "beg your pardon" on his lips, passed an envelope to Garton. Garton made a hasty examination of the envelope and saw that the diamonds had been replaced ty "phony" ones. As the man threw the envelope on the show case he turned toward the door. Garton dashed after him. The man cleared the deer, and seeing Garton coming, broke Into a run toward Thirteenth street. Gar ton followed. As he reached tho sidewalk another man. supposed to be tho first man's pal, stopped Garton. saying: "Here, I want to get my watch fixed. I've got to catch a train and can't wait." "Let me go." yelled the excited Jeweler, breaking away. "Police! Police! Police!" he yelled, and was off like tho wind after the fleeing dia mond thief. AVhero the cable tracks turn onto Grand avenue from Thirteenth street. Garton oertook tho thief and grappled with him, all the time calling loudly for the police. Tho two men struggled back and forth. The robber pulled a revolver and snapped It twice in Garton's face, but ho kept his hold. When they had struggled a few seconds, the robber, seeing the people com ing from all directions and realizing that In another minute he would be in custody, re.-ched In his pocket and pulled out the aibmnnri n.irtnn seized them eagerly. This was the opportunity the thief wanted nnd he fled. The robber ran to Main street where he leaped on a southbound car and made his escape. The man wore brown checkered trousers and a black coat and vest and hat. He was not tall and about 21 years old. He wore a pcciilinr K. of I', button In the lapel ot his coat. It was In front of Garton's place that AA'olby and Hatton. the "long and short men," were captured In February, 1S93. Shot li.v n Tramp. i:. 7.. Ingalls. employed by the Chicago.

GOAERXOR STEPIIEXS ADDIXG TO HIS POLITICAL MACHIXE. Appointing Curator 'Who Will Parcel Out Position in the Interest of the Demoerntic Pnrty Kun- nn Onlrnee to Be Duplicnted. Jefferson City. Mo.. May 29. (Special ) The policy of making political machines of tho state Institutions has undoubtedly ben Inaugurated by Governor Stephens. Many persons here wondered why the go ernor appointed curators for the various state educational Institutions Just prior to the close of the present school year. Aa cuncies have existed, or rather the terms of at least two of the curators of most of V the state institutions expired last January, and they should have been tilled then, but the governor saw fit to wait-until Just pre ceding commencement, when tho work of the school year has been nearly completed, when he appoints new men to step In and close up the work. They aro not familiar with the work to lie accomplished, yet they must wind up the work of the entire year. The secret of the whole matter has been let out nnd that Is shown from tho char acter of the appointments and from hints dropped by parties close to the governor. Free silver men have been appointed in most instances, especially where the law will admit. On all the educational boards of the stato the state superintendent ot public schools. John It. Kirk. Is ex officio a member, and, ho being a Republican, It Is found necessary to appoint a majorlty of the members on the board .who will do the bidding of the governor. Republicans will now have a hard time to hold their places. Already It has been announced that there Is to'be n shaking up of tho faculty of the state university because it is largely made up of Repub publicans, or, as it has been put, "New Knglanders." A prominent Democrat a. few days ago voiced tho sentiments of the Democrats and It Is supposed of the governor when he said: "I don't believe In keeping Republicans in good positions who fight us, and especially when there are good Democrats to tako their places." Professor Inman E. Page, who has been president of Lincoln Institute, is believed to be slated by the machine to go, to make place for a Democrat. Page Is an able man, and has been at tho head of the col ored school hero for several years. His administration has been a most success ful one. but he Is believed to be slated to go, simply because he is a Republican and has worked for his party, or at least has not aided the Democratic party. The stato board of geology Is supposed to be so constituted by recent appointment to oust Professor Charles It. Keyes from his position as stato geologist, and the elec tion of an out and out Democrat to fill his place. Keyes Is a good man. but he came from Iowa, and was elected because of his ability, and his politics was not consid ered. He has not taken the field for the Democratic party since he has been in office and therefore he is classed as a. Re publican, and he will go. Changes will be made In all the normal schools all over the state. Regents have been appointed recently for Parkvllle and Cape Girardeau, besides Lincoln Instiluto and state university. Bringing the educa tional Institutions into politics only shown the desperate means the Democrats must lesort to In order to hold the suite against tho Republicans at the next election. An indignant public may finally cause tho governor and his free silver cohorts to re cede from their present plan of corrupting the state educational institutions by plac ing them In the hands of Democratic ma chine bosses. t STATE BOARD OF GEOLOGY. Bemovnl to Columbia Under Consid eration Keyes to Stny for the Present. Jefferson City, Mo.. May 29. (Special.) The stato board of geology, consisting of Governor Lon V.

A committee was appointed to report on the advisability of removing the state geological department from the capitol building to the state uni versity at Columbia. It was believed that the board would appoint a man to succeed Professor Charles It. Keyes as state geol ogist, but alter talking the matter over It was deferred until next month. John A.
