Kansiis drain and Live Stoelt company.] — WIIKAT — Local J tenders are afraid to carry long wheat over night, hence, they arc generally Hold o\it on Saturday and many put out a little, short on anticipation of better weather. In this they were disappointed and the rush to corer at the opening advanced the prices sharply. At (lie top long's supplied the wants of shorts anil as the visible decreased rather less than expected and closing cables were, tame there was a reactiou to Saturday's closing futures. The weather is not unfavorable to winter wheat and the state crop reports coming'in would indicate a better report to-morrow from the government than the last one. The demand for Chicag-o spring- wheat is falling off, the preference being given to Ibihith wheat, and it is possible the latter will yet command a good premium over our irraln. Corn and oats were very strong nearly all day, the eased off somewhat on realizing sales late, in the session, but the trade looks for higher prices in consequence of the very bad weather, whirl) not only retards seeding, but the roads are so muddy that farmers cannot deliver their grain if they wished. Provisions advanced moderately in .sympathy with corn, but an over supply of long stuff checked the advance the trade being too light to absorb it.

The state, campaign is to be a business enmpaign. The credit of the state is to be retrieved, No more monkey legislatures for the business men of Kansas. No state ticket that does not regard the interests of 'the state above flat money and other revolutionary schemes. No state officers who regard the business interests of the people, of this state as only secondary to the nationalistic schemes of the ISellamys. No state ticket that -< endorses .lohn Davis' function money and 1'eiter's money without interest of more importance than good, liberal state laws in the state of Kansas. It is now a straight out fight for the principles of democracy, with straight cut, clean cut, Democratic state ticket. lOpen'iljHlEh't. WIIKAT. .May .tulv CUUN.

JAMES. GREATEST TOWN ON EARTH. Thin l>cftlgnntlou Applies to Vory Many Northwestern Cities. [Special Correspondence 1 TACOMA, Wash., April Id.—One of the things which strikes a stranger with great force on his first visit to Pngel sound is the very decided and positive way in which tho inhabitants of each town declare that their city is the largest and best, is possessed not only of all Unnatural advantages, but that they hold a monopoly of all tho favors of Divine- Providence. The stranger is a little mystified and bewildered at first and wonders how I nnturo and Providence camo to be si prodigal of gifts at this point. Very soon, however, the story becomes an old and oft repeated one, the only change and variation being the name oi the town under discussion and the person of tho narrator. Each town insists that it has the besl harbor, is tho most advautageonsly situ- iited to shorten the land or sea distuncc- to some kno wn or unknown part of tin world, that it lies under the softest shadow of tho Olympic range; that il has tho moot gorgeous sunsets; thai from no other point can so good a view of the cascades be obtained; that it Ink had the most phenomenal growth; that it has done a larger banking busine* and more shipping in a month than any other, and so on ad infinitum. When the people in one city are told that their neighbors in a sister city ln\ claim to the same natural and acquired advantages with perhaps a few additional ones, they not only accuse their neighbors of lying, but declare that they know they are lying, their neighbors in turn, Baying the same thing of them. It makes one wonder if the people here are not a little like those of southern France, of whom Daudet said, "They feel an honest necessity for lying of which the people living in temperate climates know nothing." LAURA B. STARU. account of his domineering and quarrelsome disposition. He is locally famous for his unusual faculty of browbeating witnesses into saying things thoy don't intend to say and badgering them into tempers and inconsistencies. One day he had in hand a big and muscular witness, upon whom ho was practicing his usual methods. Suddenly the witnessstoppod, deliberately took off his coat, squared off and begun giving the browbeating lawyer a tremendous licking. The sheriff interfered, and after a few minutes order was restored. Tho judge, a white haired and usually mild mannered old gentleman, was purple with auger. Shaking his fist at the Bheriff, ho shouted: "The next time, sir, that you interfere when anybody is licking that man I'll fiu» yon for contempt of courtl" F. F. K. A Modern Instance.

It's a large sum of rnoi.ey. 1 congratulate you." "Oh, thank youl How much is your fee?' "I havo been to considorablo exjienso and trouble, but I'll be easy on you, ma'am. We'll call it $200 and say nothing about it." "That includes everything, does it?" "Everything but my brother's bill for professional services. He examined your eyes and pronounced you blind, you remember." "Oh, yes. How much will that lie?" "Only $100. For a professional oculist that is cheap. Ho sometimes gets $400 for a single operation." "Yes, it is very cheap. You haven't a brother in the banking business, have you?" "No. Why?" "Because if you had I'd like to deposit the rest of it in his bank. Then you would have it all in the family."—Chicago Tribune. John C. Iieltl 11ns Had an Interesting nnd Useful Career. ISpecml Correspondence.] NEW HAVKN, April 21.—Mr. John C, Rcid, who has recently assumed the management of IJiv. '>>n •> ff^> Palln diuin, was for many years ;u. -uportant figure in the newspaper life of New- York city. For a long while Rcid wiv. regarded as in some respects the aiiles news and managing editor in the nn tropolis, and when the New York Tune was under his management in its now department it was regarded as a very great newspaper. Mr. fieid came from the %vest to th- office of The Times, as so many otliei men who have made successes in Nev York journalism have done. He was soldier in the Union army during tin war, and had learned the printers' trade, so that after tho war ended he iwas able to secure employment in the office of The Times while Henry J. Raymond the founder of that paper, was living Mr. Reid's ability was very soon recognized, and he was made the assistant of Louis J. Jennings, now a member of the British parliament, but for several years the editor of The Times after Mr. Raymond's death. It was Mi'. Jonniugs. aided by Mr. Rcid, who made the exposures which resulted in the arrest and imprisonment of William M. Tweed and the downfall of the Tammany so ciety, as it was controlled by Mr. Tweed and his associates. After Mr. Jennings retired from the New York Times Mr. Rold became the executive manager of that paper. Ho was responsible, for nows, and his responsibility was admirably fullillod. Perhaps the most conspicuous achievement, looking at it purely from the journalistic point of view, was his announcement in The Times on the morning af tor the November election of 1876 that Mr, Tilden was not elected, bnt that Mr, Hayes would have a majority of one vote in the electoral college. Every other newspaper in the country had conceded tho election of Tilden. Tho excitement which followed the announcement of The Times is a matter of history, and without going into tho merits of that disputed election it is sufficient to say that Mr. Hayes was seated. This was a groat, journalistic triumph for The Times. In 1880, after Garfield became presi dent, ho offered to Mr. Reid the post • United States marshal for the district in which New York is included, but he declined the honor. Mr. Reid was always an ardent Republican in politics, and when The Times deemed it best to support the candidate of the Democratic purty in 1884, Mr. Reid submitted to the views of his employers, but he felt that his usefulness was very greatly im paired, and after awhile resigned from the paper. Ho wait employed by James Gordon Bennett to tako charge of the London edition of tho New York Herald and when that venturo proved to lie a failure for Mr. Bennett, Mr. Reid returned to New York and for a time was employed in executive capacities by the New York Recorder and The World. His political beliefs are so strong howover, that lie did not find congenial relations, nnd while he was offered number of important posts he would not uccept them. In Connecticut the feeling has been that the party in which Mr. Reid has given suoh devoted service noeded a newspaper organ, and when The Palladium changed hands Mr. Kck was at once offered tho post of editorial manager. That paper bad boon for many years one of the two leading organs in the state of the party, tin Hartford Conrant being the othct. Ahl journalists have been connected with il James F. BtibcooV, who was a politician CONVICTED THE COURT. A California Jury Finds the Judge Guilty of Contempt of Conri. [Special Correspondence.! AUBURN, Cal.,April 23.—The California jury and the California judge have not stopped their good work of doing ludicrous things for tho rest of the world to laugh at. The finding of an Auburn jury is one of thoir latest featB of absurdity. The Southern Pacific company, having been much pestered by brake .beam tourists, got a law passed by tho 1CK>S- laturo making it a criminal offenst- tc steal transportation on a railroad- <::iv Tho first arrest was made in this town when a brakeman discovered a hungr;, and dirty tramp coiled up on the braki beam, whore ho had ridden across tin mountains. Tho tramp was tried befon a jury on the charge of having stolen n ride on n railroad car, and the jui-;, after duo deliberation returned u verdict of not guilty because the stolen article was not found in his possession. There is one judge in this countrywho has tho reputation of making the juries under him work very hard. He is extremely severe upon them, and no man will serve a second time on a jury under Judge if ho can possibly help it. He was holding court in a country school houso and tho jury, who wore til farmers, began to be very restive. But there was not much prospect of their being allowed to go home for some time unless they took matters into their own hands. The judge's instructions upon the case then under consideration had been plainly for n verdict of guilty. But without deliberation they abruptly returned a verdict of not guilty^and added that thoy bad found the judge guilty of contempt of court and sentenced him to bo confined in the school house for three weeks. And then they made a rush for the door, locked it and tied, leaving the court to climb out at tho window as best it could. In another mountain town not far from hero thoro is a lawyer who is very onpopular with both bench and bar OD lllstinguUtied visitors. Hon. Joseph T). Hoff, ex-consul to Mexico, of Keyport, N. J. and Hon. K. A. Smith of Shelbyville, Ky., are the city. Mr. Smith is a heavy Keno county property owner, and classifies it among his most valuable and best interest producing investments, although he owns property in several states Mr. Hoff is oloold'ug over the ground preparatory to Kansas investments and thinks that Reno 1 county suits his eye better than any that he has seen. Roth are well pleased with our city. Curd of Thanks. The high school graduating class of '02 tender their thanks to Rev. A. F. Irwin for his kindness in delivering the class sermon, and to Miss Rigger and the quartette for the excellent music rendered. COMMITTKK.
