One would think that a man of lyv. '; the IJearning, wisdom, and-knowledge ^T; j that Charlie Scott has could see be- ri llyoid a mere fallacy erected by him- 'i? '^-'^.Iself. , While Kansas can and •pfropriated money to relievo suffering. ^~»V .tlislt is not thel point; Kaw valley f' . ^co^ntics connot appropriate money to ' biifld bridges and make the repairs i--' :_ necessary for the common, every-day |. ' • neoessilies of life. The. legislature ^ .! can give thorn the power. Scott has 5* : gotten his politics so confused with . his good sense and humanity that we ;z fear he ought to quit politics, and get back to life again.—^Lawrence Gazette. [When the Register's' article was itrltten it was the general undcrstand- -.; ' Ing that some way could be found to 1 rebuild tlie Wyandotte bridges wiUv l out specikl leg^Iation. As soon as it : was ascertained that this could not bo . \ doiie, the, Register promptlj,' conceded that a special session of the Legislature was not only justified but im:. peratlve." It is still of the opinion, however; that the action of the Liegis- lature should be limited to making provision for these public works,, and 1 that it ought not, .and can not legally, make an appropriation to reimbuse individual losses. If the situation war- .rants it the Legislature, following , many precedents, might very properly appropriate a sum. necessary to provide food and shelter for those whn are temporarily destitute,' or to distribute seed among the farmers wiio are unable to supply themselves. Bui ; that an appropriation should ;bc made V i aaid u^ed to pay John Doe five hundrol dollars for the loss of his house and ~ Richard Roe a thousand dollars for daniage done to his farm, as we derstana'tKitXiazctte iislsls" "Should be done, seems to this paper to be" utterly fnniracti'cable. I The disaster which the people along jthc Kaw valley have suffered is ay- ipalling because it covered so much ler- ' ritory and involved so many people. If one farm only in all that valley ha.l ! betn submerged, the crop destroyo-1, tho live stock drowned, the house swept away, a man would have bean considered crazy who would have asked that the Legislature be called m special session to relieve this case of distress. And yet the man who owned 0 tliat farm woukl have been just as great a sufferer as any one individual of the hundreds of men whose contemporaneous misfortunes have attcaci- ed the attention and the sympathy of the whole colmtry. It may be argued that if only one man had suffered private charity naight look after him, but that i)rivate charity caiinot be expected to compass the needs of many hundred men. Tijo answer to this is that private charity -flet us better say private generosity . -f-has in fact done that very thin:.j in the present instance. Net one .".Ktd sufferer has been allowed to want for even one inears vituals or for ncc:i- sary clothing and shelter. AtlTopcka those who lost all their household fiir- initure have been supplied with enonsh ^io make them comfortable again, aii'l the sufferers at Kansas City havf ! doubtless received equally generous treatment. AbioriitdlyilNii^ hardness of heart. It Is pimple com-, mon sense. - And it is sustained, n^ore- over, by the attitude of the sufferers themselves. So far as we have heard the men who have been hit the hardest arc nftt asking any appropriation, from the Legislature. A Topeka newspaper man who had a thousand subscribers in North Topeka before the' fldod told us the other day that five hundred of them were back again. The writer of this walked about that town the other day and saw men apd Avomen digging out and scrubbing out their homes, e.xchanging jokes with their neighbors with a cheerfulness ) and courage that was just about sub lime. ' • j People who are ma'de of this kind of stuff cannot be daunted by any disaster. And people who are not made of th^t kind of stuff cannot be really helped by any sort of an appropria' tlon. ^ RAILROADS TO REFUSE PAYMENT Many hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of goods were damaged or entirely lost, in transit, during the late floods. There has been much discussion as to the liability of the railroads, and as to what the management would do. It's now said that the, railroads will refuse to mal^e good the losses,^ claiming' that the destruction of tlrn goods was an act of God, and beyond human control. We are not a lawje-. and it is true that the contention of the roads is sound as far as it sees. But the man who orders goods, wi:ich he never got, is not going to !uy for them, while the man who turned them over to tho railroads is not fifo'ng to lose them if he can,help it. Th3 flood was beyond human control, of course, but the railroad accepted the rcspon- sibillty of safe delivery and will have to malie good its. contract. The railroads had ^warnings of the flood, and the courts ^'ill probably hold that they took their 'own chances when they rushed their trains into ?uch a sitH .a- tion. Railroads have their own wires and know exactly what the conditions existing are, as to weather, floods, and the like, at all times. The guess iieie is that the roads will be held, and ilMt thcyiiK turn wi?l ma\(s good their IniFOs liy ai-%apcing rates n.i ht a 'PT. age shipper. The fellow who will havf to stand the loss in the end is the shipper \ who in the first place contributed to the sufferer, unless he can in turn make himself whole out of the consumer. This is the way it works as a rule.—Wichita Eagle. It is officially announced that Victor Munlock's plurality is 12,848, his total vote being 19,684, as against 6,836 cast for Mr. Ciyne, his Democratic competitor. The Populist condidate, who made a hard fight for second place, received only 2,903 votes, while the Socialist vote was 1,078. The collapse of the Populist party is shown by the fact that the Democratic nominee polled more votes in all but six of the tiiirty-seven counties of (ho district than his Populist competitor. And there were three counties in • which even the Socialist received more votes than the Populist nominee. "Goodby A man' vho claimed to know to1 .d ,the Wlter oi^ this that the railroad ^p^m'Balt! Lake to Los Angeles.- wblcb Sartor (|lark, of Montana /lB bolidins, (am .be paid for out> of the ^Senator's re^ar income as fast as it can be built, and that if he doesn't want to he will hot need to isspe'a bcind or borrow a dollar to complete IL wcjrks overtime In Tnio, private gift^ have not been .sufficient tomakcgood thelossescaused ; by'the-flood. But that would be equal-! oldi party, goodbye. ly impossible through any appropriation that the Legislature might make. Through fire and flood and tempest and in all manner of ways men are constantly suffering the loss of property.' It is one of; the Incidents of business and of human life.. It is ail . In the da:r's work. = And the glory of , a man is that when such a loss comes i npon him he girds np his loins a little j; tighter and goes to wprk to make good liigBin. -'When the loss is great and sudden even the*best of men may need for a time the help of a neighborly hand. But no real man, because he| has once been knocked. down, will thenceforth demand ?to be carried. One reason the freight handlers .jt Kansas City lost their strike was that they chose a poor lime to make their fight. To refuse to go to work right on the heels of the great flood, when hundreds of thousands of people were suffering jincpnvenience and loss due to unaiATOj ^dably delay freight, and when every patriotic citizen was contributing both time and money to get things straightened out again, put the freight handlers a good deal in the same light as the merchants who took advantage . of the flood to advance their prices. The result was that public sympathy was against the strfkers This is not politics, and it Is' not j and they lost.

The Gamett paper says that Cupid Is working; overtime; at that place. Cupid generally June. The late flood wai no respecter of property. It went oyer many bars In Topeka, where before water was stranger. I—... Nearly all the beer which Is shipped Into Emporia Is consigned to James Pee. He Is thought to be a relative of John Doe. Bronson Is talking about paving their main street. When thatJs dond ^he whole business section of the town will be paved. The Howard Courier saj^ a stranger there extinguished a flre with neatness and dispatch. Most places water is still used, however Three hundred and twelve pianos were destroyed by the flood at Topeka. What a terrible lot of discord to be wiped out In so short a time. At a party In Chanuto recently one of tlife girls complimented her young hostess on her fine form. "Yes and it ynly cost 50c too," smilingly replied the hostess. An "Uncle Tom's Cabin" company is touring the state. Instead of a bunch of bloodhounds for the leading feature a $15,000 Pullman car is getting the heavy advertising. A Hiawatha man who Is 80 years old complains that he Is sick all the time and can't imagine what is tho matter with. him. Ewing Herbert says he was born too long ago. W. L. Bourke, of the Galena Tlmos, is ^losing faith In advertising. Several times he has advertised for a pretty giri with a nice hammock but iip (o date has received no response. There/are still some daily papers in Kansas which run .A big black line of advertising on their front pages where the date line should be. And their pages are not over-crowded with advertising either. W. M. Hawks will be one of the speakers at the Emporia Chautauqua and the papers there say it will be worth the price of admission just to get to see Hawks' face. Probably he belongs to the bird family. The Abilene Reflector tells a good flood story. Miss Ida Morris, a young lady living eighteen miles from Manhattan was caught In the high water and rode a log eighteen miles'to Manhattan where she was rescued by a young man in a skiff. Before they reached the shore, however, his boat capsized' and the couple spent the night in a tree. The story has all the elements of a romance but one. The young man was married already. 1 Knew a Thing or' Two. Philadelphia has a young man who has very | little education, but who doesn't like to be told so. In fact, be thinks he knows it all, and when questioned on any subject he always has an answer. The other -day a friend asked him the name of a certain building on Broad street. The young man stfld he had read it over the main entrance, but could not at the moment recall It. "Is the building a hotel, an apartment house or a club?" asked the friend. "Oh, It's a club," said the other, "and the next time we pass it I will show you the name." . In a few days. the two young men were in the vicinity, and, crossing the street; the knowing one triumphantly pointed to the words cut in brew^stone over the main entrance, "Anno Domini, 1897." > In Chicago. "How do you like your new slippers?" said the up-to-date girl. "Oh, th(^y are simply immense," replied the man who tried to be complimentary. • Base baill players do not beldng ta> labor unions^ but they often .go out on strikes. , : The pr|valeBce of rabies has reached ^uch dan^erpus proportions in Chicago that education of-policemen in the ijiymptbms; the disease Is urgecl as «^ssai7J.-^PhUa^eip]iii^ Telegraph.
