FIFTH STREET COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOOOQOOGOCOOOOOOOOOOOOO SCRIP LAW DEAD KAXSAS SUPREME COURT KILLED IT YESTERDAY. JUDGE D0STER DISSENTED REPUBLICAN REGENTS OP AGRI CULTURAL COLLEGE WIN. Supreme Court, by Majority Decision, Kcvrnea Court of Appeal' De cUIon State Elght-IIonr Law Declared Valid list 'of Opinions. TOPEKA. Dec. 9. (Special.) The scrip law met a vI61ent death at the hands of the suureroe court to-day. It was declared repugnant to the fourteenth amendment to the federal constitution and therefore Invalid. This law. In substance, made It unlawful for any corporation employing: over ten persons to pay those persons in anything other than lawful money of the United States. The object to be sought was to de prive mining companies in Southeastern Kansas from paying their employes in scrip or merchandise. The majority of opinion writen by Judge Smith, says: The obvious Intent of the opinion Is to protect the laborer, and not to benefit the corporation. Why should not tie nine employes who work for one corporation be equally protected with the eleien encaged In the sane line of employment for another wrporatlon? If sncli a law Is beneficial to wage earners In one Instance, hy not in the other? The Dine men lawfully paid for their labor In goods at a truck store might, with much reason, complain that th protection of the law was unequal to them when they ea eleien men paid In money for the same serTlce, performed for another corporation en gaged in a liVe business. Such inequality destroys The law. In the Instance cited two of the eleen men might quit the employment of the company for which they worted and by this set alone make a method of payment by corporation lawful which was unlawful while the eleven were employed. If the classification attempted by this act Is constitutional It follows that the legislature mleht tune made a law applicable only to corporations employing mar Tied men or persons over a certain age. The equal protection mentioned in the enforcement of this statute Is denied by making one of the two men engaged In the same business, under precisely the came circumstances. In the same town or In the same building, a criminal, and Imposing no penalty whatever upon the other for the same act, the only difference being that, one worked for a co partnership end the other for a corporation, or one SoraiLH BRATzn,ofLawrencebnrg,Ky.,Eays: "Foryeara I suffered intensely from a running tore on my leg, caused by & wound received in the army. I was treated bya number of doctors, and took many blood medicines, without the slightest benefit. S. S. S. was recommended, and the first bottle produced a great improve ment. The poison was forced out. and the sore healed up completely." SS.S.'tI Blood (Swift's Specific) is the best blood reme dy because it cures the worst cases. It is guaranteed purely vegetable, and cqm- E lately eliminates every trace of impure lood. Valuable books mailed free by Swift Specific Company, Atlanta, G. worked nine men and the other eleven. Those who seek a protector over labor reflect upon the dignity and Independence of the wage-earner and deceive him by the promise that legislation can cure all the Ilia of which he may complain. Such legislation suggests the handiwork of the politician rather than the political economist. Snch legislation treats the laborer as a ward of the government and discourages the use of those talents which lead to success In the fields of commercial enterprise. Under this law the laborer who works for a corporation employing more than ten persons Is deprived from, the freedom of contract. The law places the laborer of such concerns under guardianship, classifying him In respect to freedom of contract with the idiot, the lunatic or the felon In the prison. In this country the employe to-day may be the employer to-morrow, or nest year. Laws treating employes as subjects for such protective leg islation belittle their Intelligence and reflects upon their standing as free cltlsens. Judge Doster dissented. By a majority opinion the decision of the court of appeals in the Agricultural college case was reversed by the supreme court. The case grew out of the removal of C. B. Hoffman and J. M. Limbocker as regents of the college by Governor Stan ley after they were found guilty of mis managing the affairs of that institution by an Investigating committee. The gov ernor named J. S. McDowell and W. T. Yoe as regents to succeed the two Pops removed. Hoffman and Limbocker then went to the court of appeals with quo war ranto proceedings to oust the two Re publican members. That court granted the writ by a majority opinion. Judge Wells, Republican, dissenting. An appeal was taken to the supreme court and that tribu nal, by a majority opinion, Judge Dos ter, Populist, dissenting, reversed the court of appeals. The question involved in the case was whether sufficient grounds were shown to justify the governor in removing the Pop ulist regents. Judge Smith, who wrote the majority opinion, declared that the find ings showed sufficient grounds for the re moval of the Pop regents. In his dissent ing opinion. Judge Doster held that the grounds were Insufficient. He concluded: These charges are trivial. They are made and prosecuted, as everybody knows, for the purpose of ousting the officers named and thereby gaining polit ical control of one of the educational Institutions of the state. They were not made and prosecuted for the purpose of advancing the Interests of the Instt tution, but were conceived and prosecuted In that spirit of malignant partisanship which Is a curse to American politics, and they but provoke a retal iatory assault when the trembling balance of poltt' leal majorities in this state shall go the other way. They were made and prosecuted to subserve the ends of office for politicians, and not of education for the youth. Similar charges and proceedings by the officcseckers of my party shall never have coun tenance by me: nor win I be aeterred from denounc- lng those made and conducted by political opponents as causeless, wicked and despicable. Tho court decided a caso which will bring joy to tho hearts of the various clerks of the courts of appeals and tho supreme court. The question as to whether these clerks had any right to charge fees under the law was raised several months ago. Opinion among the lawyers of the state on the question was about evenly divided. The court, in a case to retax costs, ruled that the clerks could lawfully collect the same tees as district clerks are al lowed. The court also held the eight-hour law valid. This decision was made in a case brought up from Junction City, where a contractor was arrested for working his employes more than eight hours a day In the construction of a court house. Labor Commissioner Johnson will now endeavor to rigidly enforce this law on oil public work.

JUDGE W0FF0RD CANED. George Woods, a Convict, Sends Him a. Token of Ills Regard, Though Sent Up by the Judge. Judge Wofford, of the criminal court, was yesterday presented with a walking cane by a convict in the penitentiary. The donor was George Woods, a negro formerly some thing of a politician in the Second ward. He did not make the presentation in per son because he is still serving a sentence of three years for burglary, imposed by Judge Wofford last fall. He accordingly deputized another negro who was recently released from the institution where he is sojourning to make the presentation. "Judge," he said, impressively, "Ah can't do nothln' lik' do eloquence he tor me, an' I'so got 'fluenzy of de borax, but he said he didn't hoi' it agin you fer sending him up an dat de lectur" wot you glv' him done him good. "He said he send dis becaus' he learnt when a man swipes him in de neck to turn de other cheek." Woods is remembered principally because of the vigor of his protestations of inno cence when sentenced. The cane is made of leather with a steel rod running through It. Around It near the handle an attempt at ornamentation had been made by in serting diamond shaped pieces of mother of pearl. Well Informed. Prom the Detroit Free Press.

It Is easy to keep well if we would only observe each day a few simple rules of health. The all Important thing is to keep the stomach right, and to do this it is not necessary to diet or to follow a set rule or bill of fare. Such pampering simply makes a capricious appetite and a feeling that certain favorite articles of food must be avoided. Professor Wiechold gives pretty good ad vice on this subject. He says: "I am OS years old and have never had a serious ill ness, and at the same time my life lias been largely an Indoor one, but 1 early dis covered that the way to keep. healthy was to keep a healthy stomach, not by eating bran crackers or dieting of any sort: on the contrary. I always eat what my appetite" craves, but for the past eight years I have made It a daily practice to take one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal, and I attribute my robust health for a man of my age to the regular dally use of Stuart's Tablets. My physician first advised me to use them, because he said they were perfectly harmless and were not a secret patent medicine, but contained only the natural digestives, peptones and diastase, and after using them a few weeks I have never ceased to thank him for his advice. I honestly believe the habit of taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals is the real health habit, because their use brings health to the sick and ailing and preserves health to tho well and strong." Men and women past 50 years of age need a safe digestive after meals to Insure a perfect digestion and to ward off disease, and the safest, best known and most wide ly used is Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. They are found in every well regulated household from Maine to California and In Great Britain and Australia are rapidly pushing their way Into popular favor. All druggists sell Stuart's JJyspepsIa Tablets, full sized packages at 50 cents, and for a weak stomach a 50-cent package will often do 50 worth of good. MUST SPEAK SOON BREIDENTHAL WILL SOON" HAVE SIXXED AWAY HIS DAY OP GRACE. HIS FRIENDS KEPT IN THE DARK THEY WILL SOON BE LINING UP WITH OTHER CANDIDATES. Populists Long on Sympathy, but Ob ject to Cubing It Sir. Monger and His Itch for the Gov ernorship Bill Hack ney Talka. TOPHKA, Dec. 9. (Special.) It has about reached that point where John Breidenthal must coma out and declare himself on the gubernatorial question. He can't stay on both sides of the fence much longer. Some of his strongest friends are becoming dis gusted on account of his failure openly to declare himself one way or the other. To newspaper men he says he will not be a candidate. He has a habit, however, of telling the newspapers one thing and do ing the opposite in politics. HU subor dinates In the bank commissioner's office are out booming him for all they are worth. They declare emphatically that he will tako the fusion nomination and are laying wires all along the line to capture delegations for him. To some of his friends he makes the same declaration that he does to the newspapers. These men are the ones who control Populist conventions. It is getting time for them to line up their forces, and they are anxious to know what he proposes to do. Unless he makes an announcement of his candidacy in a short time, the Jig will be up with him, for some who want to support him now will be lined up with other candidates. They think they aro at least entitled to know where he Is at. There is one class of Populists who claim that Breidenthal cannot shirk the duty of running for governor, even though he would lead a forlorn hope. They say that he lias held a lucrative office ever since the Pop party came into existence, and that he owes it to tlie party now to make the sac rilice. This sort of talk makes Breidenthal mad. "1 owe the Populist party nothing," said he. "I am simply being paid now for what I earned from it when some of these fellows who are now howling the loudest were spending their time and money to de feat the party. Besides, I give valuo re ceived for every cent I draw in salary. Tho same energy expended in a business enterprise would make me more money." However, he has not threatened to resign as bank commissioner to become identified with any of the enterprises he speaks of. A few weeks ago the Reform Press As sociation of the state adopted ringing reso lutions sympathizing with Frank Elliott and Pool Grlnstead In their various libel cases and issued a manifesto "to lovers of liberty and a free press" asking them to contribute to a fund to pay the at torneys' fees for these two downtrodden Populist editors. Up to date. $3 lias been donated. That was given by Dr. Pilcher, of Wlnfield. Tills shows that the reformers are long on sympathy but short on cash. George Munger, of Greenwood county, who wants the fusion nomination for gov ernor, has given it out that if he secures the nomination lie has a plan by which a campaign fund of JjO.OOO can be raised to elect him. His friends claim he can ex pect the "loyal" support of the Itching palm. Mr. Munger is making his campaign on 1 the government ownership Issue. He favor I public ownership of everything, from pea nut stands to railroads. There is one ex ception, however laundries. He owns sev eral of them. He doesn't believe the gov ernment can make a success in the wash ing business. It is very intricate, and a successful laundryman, like a successful poet, must be born and not made and con trolled. But it seems that Munger has troubles of his own in his own county. He is not getting that enthusiastic local support that is usually accorded a gubernatorial can didate at home. G. S. Sallyards, of that same county Greenwood wants the fusion nomination for state treasurer. Sallyards is popular with his party and It is pos sible that the county convention will send a delegation to the state convention in structed for him instead of Munger. Barney Sheridan, the Democratic editor of Paola, says that there are not to ex ceed 40,000 Populists in Kansas to-day. Commenting on the causes- of tho disin tegration of that party, he says: The special session ot the legislature called by Governor Leedy last December had more to do In hastening on the dissolution ot the Populist party than anything else. The law It was called to pass and did pas3 the law creating the railroad court ot visitation was pronounced a humbug when Leedy signed it. aid now since the federal court has de clared It unconstitutional the Fopullsts who en gineered its passsge wash their hands ot any and all responsibility of It. When that special session began there were about 75.000 Populists In the state who still had a sort ot hope and lingering belief In the Populist party; when It ended there were not to exceed 50,000, and not less than 10.000 hive left since. So there are not to-day to exceed 40.000 Populists In Kansas. Deeper causes, of course, set the Populist party to disinte grating, but the special session was the hari-kari act that upset the bandwagon. Bill Hackney, formerly of Kansas but now of Cleveland, 0.,vhas been in the city this week on legal business. While a res ident of Kansas, Mr. Hackney was a stanch tteputiucan ana a leauer of the party in his part ot the state. After his removal to Cleveland he went Democratic. He is not enthusiastic over the prospects of Dem ocratic success next year. Said he: I had many Invitations to come to Kansas In the 189S campaign and talk for the fuslonlsts. but de clined every one. The facts are I knew that the fuslonlsts stood no show In the state. Besides. It I had come here to campaign, I could not help but run up against Republicans In every locality to whom I am under obligations for political favors obtained when I was in politics here, and I decided not to come at all. I am no lngrate. Comparing the two localities as places of residence ho said: "I would rather be a pauper and live in Kansas than a moder ately rich man and live in Cleveland. Brains count for naught In Cleveland. Money talks. If you are not a million aire, you are not in It there." "Why don't you move back, then?" was asked. "My health will not permit," said he. "While Kansas has probably the most healthful climate of any state In the Un ion, It does not agree with me. The climate of Ohio does. This is the only thing that keeps me there."

The Question Finally Admitted. A story Is told of the late Chief Justice Cockburn. He was once counsel for the plaintiff in a certain case, and a Mr. IS. was for the defendant. Cockburn called a witness and proceeded to examine him. "I understand," he said, "that you called on the plaintiff. Mr. Jones. Is that so?" "Yes," replied the man. "What did he say?" demanded Cock burn. Mr. B. promptly rose and objected. The conversation could not be admitted as evi dence. But Cockburn persisted, and Mr. B. appealed to the judges, who thereupon re tired to consider the point. They were ab sent for nearly half an hour. When they returned, they announced that Mr. Cock burn might put his question. "Well, what did he say?" asked counsel. ."Please, sir, lie wasn't at home," replied the witness, without moving a muscl. SHOULD BE "MIXERS" TEACHERS OUGHT TO ENTER MORE INTO EVERYDAY LIFE. ThU Was the View Expressed by Several Speakers at the Teach ers Sleeting Yesterday Chan cellor Snow's Address. In spite of the rainy morning, most of the Kansas City teachers assembled at Central high school yesterday for the monthly teachers' Institute. The pro gramme was one of particular interest in both principal and ward school sections, and It is a matter of regret to a great many teachers that they can't be In. two 1 iaces at once. In the principals' section the subject for discussion was "The Value to the School of a Social Life for the Teacher Outside of School Circles." The paper on the sub ject was read by Professor Douglass, of the Central high school, and the discussion was led by Miss Ida Reese, principal of the Oakley school, and Miss Van Meter, of tho Manual Training high school. Mr. Douglass began by saying that a teacher is not independent, that he Is a leader and that ho has failed In his calling if he has not succeeded In giving to the pupils higher Ideals and aspirations and helped to strengthen their character. He believes that teachers should enter more Into the life of a community and that as things now are they are looked upon by that community as a good deal of a nonentity outside of the schoolroom. He thinks If teachers lulngle more with out side life they will be better able to adapt the education they are giving to the needs of this life; that too much of the present education is impractical. In teaching the farmer boy wo fail to dignify farm labor and give him the science of agriculture. Instead he is given a little Greek or Latin, perhaps, and the result is he grows dis contented with the life of a farmer, where as he should be turned out with the idea that there are grand possibilities in such a life: that In reality, when ordered by In telligence and science, it Is an Ideal one. If the teacher knew more nf th hnm life of the pupils, Mr. Douglass urged that many lives couiu oe Dngntenea and Hearts made happier. He urged upon his listen ers the many homes that need the sun light of pure friendship. The tendenev to tyranny and egotism which Is rife among scnooi teacners, accoruing to Jir. JJOUgiass, will be checked and modified by social con tact with the outside world. There is too much professionalism and not enough heart in the school room. Miss Reese's suggestions were somewhat along the lino of Mr. Douglass' paper. She urged the meeting of teacher and patron in a social way as promoting to a great de gree the highest welfare of the school. Principal RIdgway was received with hearty applause when he disagreed with the previous speakers In thinking that the burden of professional life should not be borne by teachers In their social life any more than it is In the profession of the lawyer and doctor: members of other pro fessions chocse their own friends those who are congenial and the teacher's pro fession should be no exception. With the teacher's numerous professional duties, the spending or his nours outside of these nec essary duties should be devoted to congen ial society, and the teacher not be weighed down with the burdensome thought that he must get acquainted with the patrons of his school. Professor Smith, of the Central high school, commended Mr. Ridgway's stand and added a few forcible words on the same line of thought. Assistant Superintendent Longan presides at the principal's section and the meetings are always exceedingly interesting and provocative of thought. In the ward school section the pro gramme was equally Interesting. Mr. Hor ace Williams, principal of the Chacf school, read a paper on the subject. "From Con victs to Colcnlsts," and Superintendent Greenwood talked on the "Chicago Method of Grading Teacher?." When the two sessions came together Miss Olive Whltely. a little pupil in the Kiitiiii City schools, rsndsrtd. two very beautiful violin solos. Little Miss Whltely plays entirely without notes and with an expression and delicacy that Is unusual In so young a child. Chancellor Snow, of the Kansas State university, delivered the address to the in stitute, taking for his subject, "Expansion In Education." He traced the development of education fn America and especially tha progress of higher education. He believes that" the time has come when we should, as does Germany, demand a university ed ucation in the professions of lawyer, doc tor and preacher. He said there could not be too much education if that education was along right lines. He dwelt especially on the advance ot woman in educational neius and equality with man and said It could be only a matter of time till political cquauiy was aaaeu 10 me euucationai. It has been proved that women may enter upon the affairs of the nation, state and God without injuring the home. As yet the practical value of higher education In making better and nobler homes Is not fully realized. Chancellor Snow closed hl3 address by hailing the day when every human being In the North and in the South, In the East and in the West, will be admitted to tha higher education, without regard to sex or nationality. ANOTHER WOMAN'S LETTER. Mrs. Hester A. Kasaen Charged With Securing a, Letter Belonging to Miss May Knnde. The federal authorities yesterday arrest ed Mrs. Hester A. Kassen on the charge ot tampering with the mails, and committed her to the county jail In default of JSM bond. On November 6 Mr. R. B. Glasscock, of Nevada, Mo., wrote to Miss May Knode, of this city, and stated in the letter that he would send her a letter the next day containing $5. which was to pay her rail road fare to a certain point, from which a crowd was to start on a hickory nutting trip, and Miss Knode was to Join them. On the day the letter containing the money was to arrive, MIs3 Knode went to the postot&ce and asked for her mall, but tha young woman at the window. Miss Anna Hopkins, Informed Miss Knode that Mrs. Kassen had come to her about an hour before with a written order from Miss Knode for the letter. Miss Hopkins stated that she had given the letter to Mrs. Kas sen, and afterward thought no more about It. Miss Knode at once took the matter to the federal authorities, and an Investiga tion followed, which led to the arrest. Mrs. Kassen stoutly maintained her innocence. Mrs. Kassen has retained an attorney, and through his advice finally paid to Miss Knode $3, but refuses to acknowledge her guilt. ' One of Those Grasping Individuals. From the Indianapolis Journal.
