During the past'twenty years there lave i>rpl)ably been more strikes, lockptits and othei forms of labor dls- tirbances in Clilcago than in, any loi her city in his country. This sQring, P;! iticulariyi cop<]itiqs|s the have been very- bad, and manyimillionB ol dollars have, been sac^iflbcd in the strug-' gjjs between employers and the wlirkinen. It is especialljf gratifying, tlierdfore, tb note that better days seem to beiftt bahd. At a;meeting of the Chicago Federation of Labor the oher day the following resolution was passed: • , ' We declare thle unions affiliated •withvthis body thait enter Into agreement with employes or employers, as SQClations must be. prepared at all times to, carry out the letter and spirit of" the agreements entered into and that the Chicago Federation of Labor will not endorse the action of any union that violates an agreement, and hereby declares that such action on the part of any union carries with it the forfeiture of any support from this body. I . , Cammonting u[on this action one of the consorvatlvi s labor . leaders is qiuoled as saying "The prevalence of so mi^iy ecnsel ;ss < strikes, because of differences- th it could easily have been adjusted, hjid ifjorebearance been shown, has turned 'pubiic sentiment away from us. We must have the support of public opinion, without which' our cause Is lost before we venture on it." ^The expression of sush sentiment lifould, go to show - that the most thoughtful labor leaders are tired of strikes and are determined to over thrdw the domination of the hasty - agitators.who are for the most part responsible for them. ton that Hon.

One thing is to be said to the crcdli of the Missouri legislature: It secmF to have treated all alike. So far a^ the testimony has yet been taken ll BfiowB that everybody'' who wanted a bill passed had to put up the price. There was no free lidt,"and no discrimination. They had a- ball storm'in Sumner county the other night and this is th4 way one, man reports his dafQ^e "Everything destroyed; will have nci harvesting; wheat, coats, corn, garden all gone; tWenty-tbree window lights broken; shingles on roof broken into' splinters." There is just as complete disaster for that one man as happened to any individual in the flood area and' if legislative aid Is to be extended In one case it could not be denied In the other. Two. New- Jersey Anarchists, indicted for taking part in a labor rIot,have forfeited the bonds of $C,500 which their friends pllt up to keep them out of jail, by failing to appear in court That a man who openly proclaims h belief that there should be no law must himself be lawless should occasion no surprise. The incident is striking commentary, however, on the Anarchistic doctrine that if here were no law all men would conduct them' selves honestly and Justly. This Is a pretty good paternal government after all. "Up at i Lawrence, as soon as word reached Leavenworth that the Kaw river bridge had gone out a company of Engineers was sent with' pontoon boats. In a few days they had a ferry in working order, operated by an ingenious adaption of cables to the current, and it will be kept nmnlng free of charge until the bridge is again passable. It It a nice neighborly thing for Uncle Sam to do And Incidentally itis pleasant to note that the ladles of - Lawrence havi given a reception, not only to the olli cers, but also ta the privates of the ^mpany. ^ ^ ^p ^XSfll!: It was a very happy thought on the part of the Legislature to reduce the interest on state warrants "not paid for want of funds" from four to si> per cent, and to provide that they should be turned in tb the State school fund. :It jreduces expense and lielpr to keep the .school fund invested. _ Next year it -is Woodson county'; turn to have the State Senator from this disb-ict, and it looks now as if ex-Efena^r Lamb would again be the nominee. Mr. Lamb made a most sat isfactorj^ and effective Senator and i<' Woodson'tpounty sees iflt to again pre sent his name, Allen will most hearili second this motion. Did the Tbpeka Herald really mear just what it said when in the course oi an editorial on the flood sufferers ap peared ithis sentence: "They ar.r strong, helpful, self-reliant people who will I'ace their troubles bravel} and make the most of them." i Some^ ^bowj.those last five words don't seem tc iCon4ept right with the rest of the sentence • i i The .in^^p^atloii meeting which wa^ to have been held at Kansas City.

A dance was.given at Phillips' place, on Duck creek, that summer and althougli it was a dozen or fifteen miles away, all the Ehnppria young men' went.

Well, when they got to dancing all the other EJmporla boys agreed to boycott Plumb's girl and not oncjof^thcin danced with her during the jevening; and the war was on; and is qn to this day.

No Elk is .over fifty, no matter how long he has lived, and none weigh over two hundred pounds. They all have the joyous, boyish, bubbling health of youth, and no whiskers. Lilacs are out of their line. Gala ways are tabooed. "I never saw an Elk who was very| rich, except in kindness and gooti cheer, nor did I ever see one clrcum navigating on? his upp'ers. They all have the money they need, even if not all they want. They make money ajid'spe!jd it, and the more they seem tb s|)e:n the IIK re they seem to maka. 'Keep the change,' • is a remark the Elk often has in electrotype. I have been occasionally pained by hearing Elks relate stories that were slightly gamboge—tinted on lhe[ edges—but, although these tales of porslfllgo had a Neufchatel flavor, yot there was always enough Attic salt supplies to redeem the mass from mortifying microbes, "The Elk does not seek to pry Into ng his soul—In fact, he Is noi troubled about saving anything. Perhaps that Is his one distinguishing feature—he does not worry "or shake his rod flag of wordy theological war- faro. He believes tha'. everything is all right elected; and this revived the town row. About this time H. C. Cross landed In Emporia. He was an Ohio stockman, had a- bunch of sheep. Failing with sheep he studied law; and although he had no money, be soon started a bank in opposition to the Plumb bank; and from then on it was pull Dick, pull Devil. But Plumb won out as United States senator, but in all his fights he had to 'placate' the Cros crowd. Later • on, when the Ottawa road was bui^t, Plumb took the Cross crowd Into the construction company. Phimb was away and Cross managed the job, got the money but; did not divvy up. As a matter of fact a large sum was due the Plumb crowd, about i>75,000. If we remember, I but Cross never spoke of It to Plumb afterward. Although Cross and Plumb and nearly all the other original participants In the Emporia town row are dead, the row goes merrily on and It begins to look like It would go on forever." OFFICERS : EG. A.
