The Cook county (His.) board of re
view decidod that the name of Miss Kate
Kane could not bo printed as a candi
date for probate judge. The petition on
which Miss Kane made her application
was signed by 3,175 voters of the Re
publican, Democratic, People's and So
cialistic parties, and she has been a
practicing attorney for years. The deci
sion was broadly that the sex of the
nominee disqualified her. Judge Scales
said, in reference to the action of the
board, that women were not yet enti
tled to vote for county officers, and that
a woman was not qualified to hold the
position of probate judge.

The Upper Mississippi Pilots' asso
ciation concluded its convention at
Dubuque last night with the election
of the following officers:
President Capt. mnane, Wauke
Vice President West Rambo, Le-
Secretary and Treasurer Crof.
Law, Lyons, Iowa.
Directors W. H. hisler. Rock
Island; M. M. Looney. LaCrosse,
Wis., and Capt. Dixson, Dubuque.
LaCrosse was decided on as the
place of holding the next meeting.
Mai. Mackenzie was recently asked
what he thought of the proposition
of the Chicago and Illinois Canal
company to deepen the channel of
tne Mississippi irom tne mouth of
the Illinois river south. He said he
preferred not to say anything on the
subject, as the question was one
which he would not have to deal
with; in other words, the territory
was not of his jurisdiction. He
thought, however, that a 20-foot
draft, which would be necessary in
order to enable ocean vessels to
ascend the Mississippi and reach
Chicago by way of the canal, could
not be obtained. That's as far
as he would go on the subject.
But he was not adverse to talking on
matters coming under his own juris
diction. He said his efforts to secure
a 4i-foot draft on this part of the
river had been successful, and that
they were now -'diving" after a 6-foot
draft and would no doubt be success
ful in obtaining it.
It is claimed, yon know, that wom
en are such emotional creatures, it
will not do to intrust them with the
ballot. Have you ever noticed how calm
and thoughtful and deliberate a crowd
of men were at an election celebration?
Have you observed what strength of in
tellect, what capacity for government,
they showed as they cavorted around
the burning pile and added all the head
covering they possessed to the combus
tible material? Probably you have been
there yourself, and maybe this argu
ment may have occurred to you that
man alone should be intrusted with the
ballot, he is so much more calm and
unemotional than woman. Kansas

Here's Where Voe Laogh.
The Prodigal Father" at the Ly
ccum this week is an excellent come
dy. With just a dash of horseplay to
give it spice, it produces fun that is
fast and furious. The company is
one of great and even power. The
many curtain calls which the second
act received from the well tilled house
attested its success here. The story
is simple. A wealthy old geogra
pher starts out to explore Africa, but
the day before his steamer sails he
meets with a diversion in the
shape of a serio-comic actress. He
straightway gives up his scientific
ideas, and tags after for six months.
He receives no encouragement, so
gives up the chase. Arrives at home,
he tells his family of imaginary ad
ventures in the dark continent. Com.
plications entirely unlooked for fol
low him in scenes' that are both ludi
crous and touches of nature. The
company is made up of excellent ma
terial. All are young people, and.
