The municipal elections in Kansas
yesterday hive been of much
more than the usnal interest. Mrs.
Nation's crusndo and the snhse
qucnt widespread revival of iu
terest in the enforcement of pro
hibition combined to make the
city elections the battlefield up
on winch, in a largo measure
would depend tho ultimate fate of
prohibiten laws. The results in
the various elections over the
State yesterday seem to fdiow the
prohibitory sentiment is still in
the ascendency. In Atchisou
and Leavenworth the temperance
issue was not brought up, city im
provementa and other questions
taking the precedence. Iu Wich.
ita the temperance people made a
fight for supremacy, but polled
only about 13 per cent of the
vote. Numerous cities went

Where rippling waters of the Tennessee
In rhythmic flow
reiiniem sing, historic Shiloh stands..
Her tragic woe
Is writ hy sculptor's art. In her calm face
There lingers, of her passion, not a trace
To mar its peaceful glow.
We scarce can picture it all scameil and scarred
With crimson stain
Just while ago; nor scarce our ears can catch
The minor strain
Within the river's flow. This sacred hill
Seems but a place to pause in rest, until
Tired feet shall fuel no pain,
This "silent city" shews a nation's love.
And honor, due,
Is paid unto the mem'ry uf her sons
Who wore the blue
And gained the victor's crown. Yet, from life's toil
Iteneath the same love-consccrated soil
Sleep, other hearts as true.
This fair white city fairer yet shall he.
And some glad day
lleatitudes, anew, around her brow
In hallowed ray
Like nimbus crown shall shine. For love shall own
Her debt to valor, by memorial stone
To those who wore the gray.

of the Shiloh Park Commission,
arrived iu the city from Chicago
and awaited the arrival of the
steamer Clifton yesterday, bound
for tho historic old battle grounds
to participate In the reunion of
the veterans of both sides who
celebrate the anniversary of the
great conflict next Friday aud
Saturday. The Major is probably
the best known and most uni
versally esieemed survivor of
that bloody battle. A contest iu
which there were no hundred day
men nor bounty jumpers engaged
upon the one side, r.or guerrillas
or bushwhackers upon the other,
but all soldiers of thei1 own freo
will fighting for the rights and
principles each held dearest. It
is Dei haps owing in part to his
position, that of secretary to the
commission aud historian of the
battle, that the gallant old soldier
owes in a measure hia great pop
ularity among the participant
survivors, but asido from this, his
genial manner, bis impartial
treatment and bis ever ready
disposition to render justice to all
the veterans, espeeially those who
took part iu the battle of Shiloh,
has endeared him to ever? old
"Yauk and Johnnie" with whom
ho has ever come in contact.
Maj. Reed enlisted as a private in
the Twelfth Iowa, and through
undaunted courage aud personal
merit rose to the rink of Major of
his reciinent. Time deals len
iently with the handsome, jovial
and big-hearted old veteran and
notwithstanding hia near three
score years he appears almost as

youth he took in tho bloody bat
tle of Shiloh.
Accompaning Maj. Iteed were
Lieut. John D. Cole, of Milwau
kee, Wis., and Sergt. J. Lewis, of
Cedar Rapids, la., both formerly
members of the Twelfth Iowa,
