'And Jut Look Vpoa the Men "Who Have Pat the Spirit of Life Into It! A Clamorously Hungry Horde of Popocrat. Back of It. After having been dead, or "quiescent," In the fellcltious phraseology of President James Black, for two jears, the Aurora Club, onco ono of the most powerful Dem ocratic organizations In the state, -was re organized last Blent at an enthusiastic meeting of officeholders and their employes, ofllccseekers and their would-bo employes,. The meeting was held at labor headquar ters and was a. rouser. The odor of office was so strong upon the air that, there was eomo talk of naming the organization the. Aroma Club, but it was finally decided to tick to the. good old name under which, in tho halcyon, days of tho local Democracy, many a victory was won. One thing was settled "good and plenty" at the rejuvenation of the Jackson countv- Eemocracy, and that was that no gold emocrat need apply. Tho club adopted the Chicago platform with a whoop. On tho face of the returns, as President elect Frank P. Walsh announced, the club is reorganized to carry out a "mission," which Is to wrest the offices from the hands of tho Republicans of this city and countv. Sir. "Walbh didn't put it that way. He declared that the jjeople of this great and growing city were tired of reform and they wanted a Greater, New York Tammany to run things. E. H. Porterfleld, one of the avowed would-be Van Wjcks of this great and glorious "mltpion," was a prominent figure in. tho proceedings. It was a tjpical Democratic gathering. The court house crowd was out in force. Sheriff Stone and even- deputy sheriff he could muster: County Clerk Crittenden and all his deputies: Circuit Clerk Stones-trcct and every deputy in his office thee were tho active participants, of course Joe Shannon was there and Charley Owsley and ex-Marshal Kehlear and Charley MUlman and Johnny Glldsv and Sam Jarboe and Fine Farr and Arthur Chapman and L. A. Tillman, tho color&d ward worker. If this Is not a crowd with which to conjuro in the name of reform, what Is it? Tho club starts out with the following officers: President, Frank P. 'Walsh; secre tary, Dan Cecil; treasurer. J. "W. Spcas; financial secretary. James Black; assistant secretary. R. O. McLin; sergeant-at-arms, Thomas Griffin. In calling the meeting to order President James Black, who had been a gold Demo crat during the recent campaign, got down on his marrow bones like a good fellow and after expressing duo repentance, declared he saw the error of his ways and he was restored to full fellowship. .. F. C. Farr made a grandiloquent speech, nominating Frank P. Walsh for president of tho club. Sir. Walsh was elected with a whoop and made a " "thuslastlc" speech In which he declared that the people of this city. like those of Greater New York and Chicago, were tired of reform and wanted a more economical, a purer, a-better and above all a freer government, and thev looked to the Democratic party to give It to them. As having a vital bearing upon Kansas City and Jackson county politics. Mr. Aalsh declared that the currency was still a pregnant question, and It God let Bryan live till I&00 he would be president of the United States. . ,Th.e constitution w,-ls suspended and Pres ident Walsh declared he would entertain any motion for the good pt the Democratic party. Considerable discussion took place on the question of ward organization, but action was deferred till the next meeting. Treasurer Speas, who was treasurer of the old club, renorted hnt ihra 7. .. debts nor a surplus to descend to the new The club will meet again next Wednesday n5.e Jw,len a new constitution will be adopted.

THIEF'S CLEVER TRICK. Seeuren Two "Wnlche From n .Tender In Independence lij- a Simple Rune. II. Williams, manager of the J. B. Holt Jewelry Company at Independence, report ed to Inspector Ilalpln last night that a well dressed man had swindled his wife out of two gold watches Tuesday night. Mrs. Wil liams was alone In the store, her husband having come to Kansas City on business. About 7 o'clock the stranger walked Into the store and after giving a name familiar to Mrs. Williams, asked for her husband. After finding that he was not present, the man asked to look nt some watches, sajlng he was desirous of having a timepiece. Ho selected two and readily secured Mrs. Wil liams' permission to tnko them home so his wife could have a voice In the selection. He never came back and now Mr.-Williams wants mm arested.

The fourteenth annual ball of the Fire men's Relief Association was held last n.ght at the Priests of Pallas hall. The dtn. lminfnso as it is, proved entirely too small to accommodate the dancers com fortably, but the lull never presented a better appearance than last night. The dancing floor had been covered with white canvas and the dtcoialions were much the same as In honor of Pallas Athene. The crowd was slow in gathering and it was a o clock before the grand march was announced. The firemen who were on the committee were dress.fi m nett uniforms with shining brass buttons and white standing collars. The grand march was led by Cmief Hale and his wife and was li.truciiis.ica in uy nearly boo couples. The programme of dances contained twentj tive numbers.

YOUNG STOCK SCARCE IN TEXAS Some Mny De Imported From Mexico, Think Cattlemen From the Lone Mar Mnte. "We hav e had a good season for the cat tle business down in Texas," said William R. Curtis, of the Lope Star state, at the Midland last evening. "The stock has done well, we have had good luck at tho mar kets and the cattlemen have been able to meet their paper on time. "There is a peculiar condition prevailing down there now." he continued. "There are no joung feeders at any of the ranches near the railroads and the only place jou can find them is back In the Interior. Along near the roads the price has lwen good and the demand sharp and the stockmen have sold all of their joung stock. Now, next j ear there will be no earl'ngs and 2-year-olds for market, and there will be a short age that will be felt and mav have a de cided Influence on the market. Tho old stockmen who usuallv have hundreds of the oung stock now have none and havo even In many Instances sold oft their last spring calves and are now left with noth ing but a lot of cows on their ranches. It Is a new condition for Texas. I have never seen anv thing like It before." Thero aro numerous prominent stockmen of tho West and Southwest in the city this week. They are settling up their deals for tho past cattle season and talking over new ones for the coming year. The scarcity of joung stock in Texas has been dis cussed very much amonir them and is nt- tracting their attention. Some of them aro In favor of going to Mexico and importing joung stock into this countrv for the pur pose of suppljlng the shortage and It maj jet bo resorted to If other sources do not jleld the desired supplj-.

GREAT EXACTIO-V.S K.NDERGOE BY CADIDATES IX 11MTED STATES. Jinny Men of National Fame Have Succumbed to the Strain Some of Those Who Have Broken Down Under the Work. The New York Press sajs: Those who have not been through it for themselves oi In aid of their friends and political as sociates cannot realize the strain on mind and body caused by an exciting political campaign In America. We are not a phlegmatic people, we are not prono to take things easj-. It Is our characteristic and without boastlpg it may be said that whatever we do we do with all our might. Americans have wonderful nerve force and wiry phjslcal constitutions, jet thej' use it all up, just as they do the day and the night, which, combined, are not long enough for the work to be done in the.few weeks before tho election. Open air speaking is a sufficiently heavy dram on the strength at the bet. Add to this several car-tail speeches everj- nisht, rkshing from one place to another, and then into crowded, sniffy halls, overheated, illy ventilated, and then out into tho chill October air to repeat the operation el-e-where and the wonder is th it even strong men can endure it. This is of the workers in the rani s onlj-. Imagine, then, the str.tin on a cardidate, especiollj- one- who Is leading a forlorn hone, who, with only small chance of success, nevertheless sets himself dead In earnest to i'o the be-t that Is In him. Such a campilgn was tnat of Hoi ace Gieelej in IsTJ. He diid within a month of his deteat at tho poll-, not so much of disappointment because he had foreseen that he could not win as of hard work in the tight, coupled with the loss just hefore election of his wife, who had faithfully nursed his failing strencth. Just euch a campaign, ton. was that of 1K0, In which Douglas, one of the defeated candidates, received the blow that soon killed him. Last j ear was particularlj- tough on tho old war horses. It is a pccullariij of Ameri cans in time-, of stress that tluv want Ihe old fellows, the partv 's st.indbjs. Young men don't satisfj-. So out trot the worn and aged spellbinders and show tluir faces. They were not unwilling. In 'CI grand fathers volunteered and went to the front, and the middle aged were no less pitriotic in 'sc nor aie thej- to-dav. One of this diss last fall was Ros-vell Horr. lie went right Into the "enemj's countrj-," to use n phra-o of which we heard quite a bit a jear ago He went out to Nebraska and captured Hie farm ers. His strontr oolnt was the t.irlir nml he knew Just vhat would appeal to tho farmers. Working on this line, and for an honest dollar, he brought minj- votes to the Republican ticket. But he overtaed himself and he birch- lived to see the triumph of the caue lie so ablj- defended. Colonel Fellow-, e-distriet attornej- of New York, was one of the Democrats who spat upon Popocracj-. As a convert is sometimes the most zealous in the new faith, so Colonel Fellows threw himself into the campaign for McKinlev with all his soul. He had been troubled several j ears before with cancer of the stomach, but never would submit to an operation. His old trouble reappeared because of the requirements of the campaign and soon utter election it neiped to kill him. John Y. Foster was a New Jersey po litical worker who was carried off bv-plcuro-pneumonla a week or ten daj-s after tho election. He was a well known news paper man of Newark, and for vears had been connected with Frank Leslie's. For a quarter of a century he had been at tho head of the Republican state committee of rcw Jersej-. He spoke at manv outdoor meetings in New Jersey in the campaign, which aggravated his disposition to lung trouble. He left his desk at Frank Leslie's tho Friday after election and never re turned. Joseph B McCuIlagh was editor of the bt. Louis Globe-Democrat, the only .sound money morning newspaper in St. Louis. Ho jumped into the work of the campaign, made still more onerous to him by the solltarj- position his paper occupied. He alwajs was an Indefatigable worker, and lack of phjslcal exercise, the grip and a partial loss of the use of his limbs made him unfit really to take such an activo part in the campaign. But that made no difference to him. Tor years he had per sonally supervised the city and telegraph departments of his paper, coming to the pfllce at 10 o'clock In the morning and not paving until 1 o'clock the next morning. To these regular duties were added the requirements of the campaign, and in his enfeebled state he collapsed nr61 ilckle'- Rl, -"rk In that cam palp at his age was the wonder of the entire countrj', was prostrated with In somnia, and for a long time his condition was serious But he survived, and. though a Democrat, he stands this jear as he did . .., .. ,..t , filial jiepuuiican candidate. A PANIC STRICKEN COURT. Odd Incident of the Yellow Fever Scare In the South Hon the Jan. tlces Opened the Court. - The Nashville Banner sajs: "The hon orable supremo court of the state of Ala bama cut a rather ridiculous figure In Montgomery last Saturday. That was the da- for the court to open its regular term, and a failure to meet on that day in the capital city of the state would have re sulted in the omission of a whole term and the enforced idleness of the court for near ly a year. It was therefore imperative that the honorable court should go to Montgomery and fcrmalh becln the term To discharge this duty the court made its arrangement with paramount precautions against the possible danger of infection, fhe supreme justices arrived at the Mont gomery depot on a special train nt II SO a. m, and were driven at a rapid pace to the capital, where they hurriedly went through the form of opening the court, and as hurriedly had their precious persons .......... .. iu nit- -peum tram, winch in a. jiffy blew Its whistle and whirled away from the citj. "This was. we Insist, a very ridiculous performance That grave and reverend body had a duty to perform, which should have been deliberately done, nnd done with a proper leganl for dignity and the solemn obligations of the court. Instead thev skurrled in and skurrled out like a lot of frightened rabbits, in a way which must have made any infinitesimal j ellow- fevvr germ that happened to be In a hundred yards or them roll over In a paroxjsm of inextinguishable laughter.' " -mi FOUR BOXES DID IT. Remnrknltle Success of n evv Pile Cure. People who have suffered for j-ears or months from the pain and inconvenience of that common di-order. pile-, will look with skepticism upon the claims of the makers of the new discovery for cure of all forms of piles, known under the name of Pjramld Pile Cure: nevertheless the extraordinary cures perform, d by this rem edy are such as to warrant the Investiga tion of any sufferer. As a case in point the following letter speaks for Itself: Mr Henry Thomas, of fub-smtlon No. 3. Hosack avenue, Columbus, O., writes as follows: Pjramld Drug Companj. Gentlemen: I want jou to use my name If it will be of anj- use to jou. I was so bad with the piles tint I lost work on that account. Nothing did me any good. I read In Cincinnati of the manj- curs of piles bj- the Pjramld Pile Cure, and I vent to a drug -tore and asked for It. The drug clerk to'd me that he had something else that he thought was better, but 1 told him that I wanted to trj- the Pjramld first.. The flr-t box helped me so much that I tried another, and then to complete tne cure used two more boxes, making four In all. I am now completelv cured. Have i ot a trace of piles and I had surrercl for four j ears with the worst form ot pro tiudlng plies. I suffered death from piles, hut I have found the Pjramld Pile Cure to be just a.s represented I have recommended It to several of mj- friends 'and I am thankful to be able to write jou what good the rem edj" has done for me. Physicians recommend the Pj-ramld Pilo Cure because it contains no opium, co caine, or mineral poison of anj" kind, and because it is so safe and pleasant to uce, being painless and applied at night. 1 ne patient Is cured In a surprlsinglj- short time with no Inconvenienco whatever. The Pj-ramld Pile Cure Is sold by drug gists at .V) cents per package, and if there Is anv constipation it is well to use tho Pvramld Pills at the samo time with the Pile Cure, as constipation Is ve'j- often the cauo of piles, and the pills effectuallj- re move the costive condition.

There was no fire in tho building at the time except in the Lase ir.ent, and it Is the opinion of Mrs. Atch ison that the gasoline took fire from fric thn, which Is a quite common thing.

Knnnn City I,avr In "Wholly Different From the One Knocked Oat in St. loalJ. City Counselor Middlebrook, in speaking of the supreme court decision at Jefferson City Tuesday knocking out the St. Louis smoke consumer ordinance, said: "As I understand tho matter, the court held the St. I,ouls ordinance to be invalid because It was unreasonable. This is a question tho courts Invariably reserve to themselves to determine. According to the printed excerpts from the opinion the points there held to be objectionable do not exist in the Kansas Citv ordinance. There Is nothing In our ordinance that can be con strued aa extending It to housekeepers or private residences. "I Judge from tho tone of the opinion that the St. Louis ordinance was rather far reaching in its effects, and while our ordinance does use the term 'furnace' It uses It in connection with other terms which clearly indicate that it was not the Intention of our council to have the or dinance apply to private residences. An other point upon which great stress was laid by Judge Gantt was that the at torneys for St. Louis admitted that no In vention had jet been made calculated to prevent or consume the smoke. It Is claim ed bj- tho"e who know. In Kansas Otj that a device has been patented for the ac complishment or partial prevention of the nulsanco insofar as dense, black or thick gray smoke Is concerned. "If a full reading of the court's decision shows that It sajs that dense black or thick graj- smoke is not a nuisance then it might be contended that we had ex ceeded our powers, but as I understand from a casual reading of the decision the objection to the St. Louis ordinance was slmplj- that It was too broad in Its scopo."
