After ouotinff from a St. Louie a - paper three paragraphs, saying that politicians are figuring on folks future, Mr. Watterson continues: "Between the lines there is some suggestive reading here. No onecan ever predict just what a body of dis credited politicians will do when scar ed into the need of doing something which will look like doinjr their duty. "The career of Mr. Folk hasthu far beeu exceptional aud bears the earmarks of having a future befon it.

The governor save he has traveled over the Kaw valley from Kansas City to Topeka and believes the Buffering has not exaggerated.

The governor will issue a signed state ment to-morrow in regard to the matter. charge his duties fearlessly without dictation from any quarter. ' "This the gang thought waa only campaign chatter, but three week after Mr. Folk took the oath he die covered that the grossest corruption prevailed in almost all the depart ments of the city government. "The magnitude of the corruption staggered belief, but the circuit at torney went right through it, even convicting the arch ring leader and engineer of bribery, the Bill Tweed of St. Louis corruption, a person by the name of Butler. No oppomtion, no threats, no bribe, could dissuade him from his course, so that now his influence it- felt in state us well as local affaire.

If the artisans who are employed in the construe tionot the world's fair buildings carry out their threatened strike, the chances are that the opening of the exposition will be considerably delayed.

The dissatisfaction has caused general demand for an increase, but it is the present determination of the management to fight the issue with the building trades council. Venezuela's Revolution Over.

Ewen testified to seeing White just before and after Marcum was bhot, aud to seeing Jett just after Marcum was carried out of the court house. Ewen denied each allegation. Ewen said he had never told Sheriff Ed Callahan and county judge Hargis what he had seen when Marcum was killed, because he feared to do so. In his address this morning the commonwealth's attorney, Byrd, said it would be proved that Jett admitted to Mrs. Johnson that he had killed Marcum. In the evidence this morning it was stated that Jett and White were seen talking to Mrs Johnson on the bridge. Mrs. Johnson to-night confirms what Byrd said would be her testimony, adding that she feared to tell this earlier, believing that she would be assassinated. "As I was returuing home shortly after the killing," she said, "I was overtaken by Jett. He spoke tome and I said, 'Jett, did you kill my brothei?' lie replied, 'I did, but liar gis' money made me do it.' He said he was going to leave the country. Then lorn unite came up aud I asked him if he had anything to do with the murder, and he said he was there, but he did not fire the shot." Pittsburg's Monster Lockout.
