(iovernor Hughes of New oi k etoed the two-rent passenger tare bill in his State, He proluilily didn't want any Federal .Indue to eome lmttiliK in on his Stute'c rights preset ves. Federal .1ui1k Mi'l'herson seems to think that State leci.-lation ought to he tuken on probation. If after u three-months trial of the two-rent passencer fare the rail roads don't kick, he may allow the aw to stand. Mr. Vattersoii has given lis another feature of his favorite ran ilidate for President. He has a "wiiininc smile," Now, ean he he meaiiiiii; (iovernor Folk! No, eome to think of it, (Iovernor Folk doesn't wear u inustaehe. Colonel (icorge Harvey says Eu rope is callinc for the re election of Mr. Koosevelt. Well, we are not surprised at Hint. Mr. Ruoee volt's centralization dnetriuc ig closely iikiti to monarchal ideni, but America doesn't take very kindlv to that nort of tiling. A TeuiK'ssee postmaster has dis covered n new upecies of butterfly with a black T plainly visible on its wiliL's, which he takes as n pro phetic presidential omen, but he is puzzled to know, whether the T stands for Teddy or Taft. We snirgcst that it stands for "J'ofher fellow, and his name begins with u 15. Harry Orchard may be the re volting criminal he confesses him self to be, and we are disposed to give him credit for being eiial to till the crimes he claims to have committed; but if there is any thing in the preponderance of testi mony as developed thus far in the Haywood trial, his story, implicat ing Haywood, Mover 1'cttibone and the Western Federation of Miners in his crimes, is a tissue of cunning lies. During the time the two-cent paseeuger rate has been in effect in thin State, the traflie in and out of St. Louis, says the Republic, shows a greater nioevment than for the corresponding period in any year except while the World's Fair was in progress; out mm speuuu in structions have beeti issued by the railroads to all subordinate of ficials and employes not to give out any information tending to disclose whether travel i heavier or lighter under present conditions. This doesn't look as if the two-cent rate is confiscatory. , ... .i . :..i :.. The railroads are becinuing al leady to hedge against the nincly dav trial agreement of the two-cent fare, which piouiises to knock out their contention that the low rate is confiscatory. Assistant Attorney Kailey of the Missouri Pacific thinks they were handed a gold brick in the ninety-day trial; that it comes nt the wrong season, lie says that at this season there is fully three times the customary amount of travel due to vacation trips andHi tourist parties; that money seems easy, ami the people are persnadinglthemselves to take trips which they have been deny ing themselves, consequently the receita of the next ninety days should not, in o spirit of fairness to the roads, beade the basis of a decision as to the effect the two cent rate will have upon the income from passenger traffic. But in this will be observed the admission that "people are persuading them-, MO., .H'LY .". l!MiT. selves to hike trips which they have Ami i is il not I stumble to inter that ihis is hei'iinse of the lower rule.) iu.st as Ihoiisaiids take udvanliiL'e I of low excursion ratef, and that people will continue to take trips because of the low rate which they Imve heretofore denied themselves because of the higher rate? COUNTY COURT. County Court met last Monday in adjoin licit session and was in notion thteo days.

Vandiver is to reign his position as Superintendent of Insuraee to become rrcsident of I he State University, Mr. Vnndiver makes the following very emphatic statement : "This is the. same old story that was started during the campaign three veins ago mid recently revived by the Kansas City l'ost, which, in its desper ate straits for weapons to use against (iovernor Kolk, professes to discover a great scheme and pint to make the University a political machine to help send the (iovernor to the United States Senate. There is nut a single woid of truth in the story. Il is a fake news Item, a pure fabrication, so pre posterous that it scarcely needs to be denied. 1 have do thought nf resign ing my position, nor have 1 any in formation that rrcsident Jnsso thinks of resigning; his; and if any 111 0111 her of the Hoard of Curators thinks nf such a change or any change at all I have never heard of it."

Federal or State Regulation. Tho lola, Kansas, Index can't sec any reason for this Uooseveltian cry of cciilrali.ing everything in the Federal Government. It says: It ceitainly isn't because tho Fed eral authorities have accomplished the more in the light for corporate regu lation Tho States have dono some thing in the matter of lower freight rates, I'-cent passenger fares and promiscuous issuance of free passes. Hut what havo the Federal authoiiliat dono to merit this effort tu turn the whole question of regulation over to them? W hat lias tho Federal governiiieut dono? you ask. Well, about a year ago It huslcd the paper trust, yel the trust still controls the price of paper and print paper is higher than ever; the aggregate lines assessed against the Standard Oil Co. would run well up into tho millions, hut not one cenl luis actually been paid; the "big four" beef packing combine was found guilty, but, by order of the government, the) were given an immunity hath mid they escaped with their bank account in tact; llalliilian, who stole S'GO.OUU, Uixi from one railmad, will not be prosecuted, so hue reports from Wash ington advise us; the mineral laud thieves wore allowed to go if they would turn back to tho government tho lands they hnd stolen, which they did, after they had taken pi Helically all the coal from under it, and now coinos the announcement of tho third annual stunt entitled, "Busting tho Coal Trust." Isu't it all a farce? Haven't the plain, honest people becomo tired of this sort of regulation ? Tho F'cderal government will have to ohow a cleaner record than that be' fore the States will consent to surren der I heir rights to Stato regulation The motto might well be, "Millions In fines assessed, but not one cent paid."
