I I Topeka, Jan. 27.—Most of the political talk of ttie week centers around the Stubbs-Dawson row. It is "old stuff" of course, but both the Governor and Attorney General keep pilin.g fagots on the embers and it blazes up about once a week. To the writer the most amusing feature of the episode is the general comment of the Kansas editors to the effect that the row is undignitied. There is no dftubt about that. But just what did the editors expect when they el'"'cted a politician of the Stubbs type Governor of Kunsas? Stubbs's ctudlties. his reversion to the elementary emotiona. have been ills strength in politics. Had hf been a quiet, modest, courteous, polished gentleman he never would have been elected governor of Kansas. The people of Kansas wnnt- I'/l a governor of the "b'goHh" tyiie. elsr> they would not have <»l'ct "il Stubbs.

Harvey of Harper's, wrhich withdrew its' support from Wilson after his statement to the editor th'af it hurt his candidacy. In the first letter Wilson apologizes for the abrupt manner in which he fold Harvey that Harper's support had injured him but asks hi mto continue his friendly attitude. Harvey replied that he was still a sincere friend of Vllson and that Wilson's name had been taken from the head of Harper's editorial column In fairness to Wilson. Vv'llson wrote again saying he felt badly on account of having hurt Har- v.y's feelings with his tactless manner, but explains that he didn't mean that he wished Harper's to withdraw if? support, which he says put the weekly In a false light. He «aya hn tried to see Harvey personally and explain his appreciation for the support of former years as well as now. Harvey replies that he feels no personal resentment but was forced to explain to his readers how the mistake was made. AVilsonN Letter In FnlL Wil.son's second letter, dated January 11, follows: ".My Dear Col.
