Johnson of Cleveland has ptilb-d the ripcord of the latest presidential ga;; bag before it- had a chance lo leave the ground. He has sent word lo friends of his here that he Is not candldaie.

Johnson says he still has a large conn act cui out lor him in the niunici|)al problems that con front VIevcland. lie intends to stay on the job there. To make ihis emphatic he announced his candidacy for a tifili term as ui.ayor as soon as enough rfturus had been received to assure him that he had beaten (Congressman Uurlou. .Ml this Is taken to indicate even more than the devotion to ihe ne»;ds of Clevehuid it displays. .Mayor Tom I. Johnson has won a deserved reputation as a shrewd politician. He can usually forecast his own pliiralilles with pretty close accurac-y. but he also has an eye focused on the weather station of national' politics. For .•;ome months .Mr. \V. J. Hryan has been coyly passing along every sug- ;:L'sTion of another I'residential nominal inn for himself tn some other dem- <!<rai. His role has been that of a frivolous comedian who made a hit a season or two ago by pointing to some one else and saying. "Hand it to him." every time a stilge character approach ed him with an offer to shake hands. Mr. Bryan has indicated Senator Cul- bcrtson of Texas. Senator Daniel of V'irgiula. and one OP two other distinguished gentlemen iis good democratic presidential timber. When the Cleveland mayoralty cam- [laign assumed something like a national aspect .Mr. Bryan suddenly became Interested therein.' And at the same time Mayor Johnson began to alk about promptly announcing his candidacy for a fifth term as 'mayor if he was elected a fourth time. .Now Mr. Pryan has not said In to Tiuiny words that he has no relish tor I try at the presidency ne.\f year. Nor has Mayor Johnson stated that he considered democrat ii- success in ll'uS uob^ematical. .Mayor .lidinscu) simply says that he will insist on sticking to his mayoralty job for the present. When friends suggest to him that Cleveland municipal proi)Iems may be in a roDditioii to be safely left lo M>me one else alxiut the >ear IITJ and that he chances for electing a democratic iresidcnt may have improved by that ini»\ he simply smiles and says h«* is giving so much attention to local conditions that he has no time to keep abreast of national politics. Hut the firs! suggestion from N«>w Vork. followed by a second from St. Louis, that .May<M- Johnson was now available iresidcniially brought a strrn and .-elf ;acriflcing denial from the Cleveland chamiiion of ".-cent farr.-. Charles Murphy was one of the first to riiih a telegram of congratulations to Mayor Johnson after his recent victory. Mr. Murphy followed his telegram with an interview booming Mr. Johnson for )resident and he followed his inter- iew with a trip to Mt. Clemens. Mich which is not far from Cleveland. It understood that certain Johnson democrats from Cleveland were expected to come to Mf. Clemens, or at least that .Mr. Murphy expected ihcni ojme. But the chances now are that .Mayor Johnson will find a great eal of work for these Johnson demo<rats at home during the ne.\t few days and weeks.

The, state organization of suffragists made uo concerted effort to have an equal suffrage law"''enactcd at the last session of the legislature, thinking it a waste of time. In ino.") the house jiass- cd an equal suffrage bill by a close v.i.e. but ll:e bill was beaten uiuiei- cifully in the senate.

Popnlatinn Deereasinsr, Topeka. Nov. 11.—The population of the Kansas stale penitentiary at Lansing is steadily decreasing, according >o fiKures filed in The state offices here •y John C. Brown, the chief clerk. There are now only IDliG convicts at Lansing. A few months ago the total number was in excess of 1.200. There are now only ;!:!0 Oklahoma prisoners in the Kansas t>rI.son. But a short time ago Oklahoma had 440 convicts at Lriinsin.?. "fieporfs we receire Indicate too." says .Mr. Brown, "that there will be a fiirthHr decrease in the prison jiop-jla- ion. Oklahoma officers who have been at Lansing recently tell me that they do not expect to bring us many more convicts for three or four months at east. I have found by examination of the recosds too, that just fifty per cent of the Oklahoma convicts will have completed serving their time within the next twenty months. So the number of Oklahoma convicts will be decreased, even if the new state does not Immediately build her own penitentiary. But we rather expect that Oklahoma will at once start her own penitentiary and that few more Oklaho- mas will come to Lansing. They may take the convicts we now have away from us gradually, as they get places fixed for them but once they locate their own penitentiary the Oklahoma authorities will cease sending convicts to Kansas. So we expect our population to decrease steadily. .'•Why does It decrease? Probably the operation of the parole law does more than any one thing to cut down penitentiary population. It will do more now that district Judges have the parole power. Then many young offenders are being sent to the reform atonr. Formerly all convicted felons wer* vent to L«aains.

Fifty-four former foreign citizens will make application for final naturalization papers at the next term of the district court of Crawford county. The aindicants are English.

This is the fact that is causing the r\i<h of foreign citizens in this portion "of fhe stale to take out their final pai>cr.s. To Rebuild East Wing. Topeka. Nov. 11.—It Is probable that the executive council will iurUruct John F. StantiMi. state architect, to preiiare plans and make an e.-stiniatc of Ihe probable cost of re-buildit'.g and re-finlshing the cast wing of Ihe state house within th<> near future. The menibrrs of the 'ouncil are convinced that the east wing, which was erected almost forty years ago. should be re- tinished and brought up to the standard of the other i>ortioiis of the building, constructed more recently. The expense of re-finishing the east wing probably would be considerably in excess of $100,000 bat it is probable that the work could be divided between two years. Of course it can not be started without a special aiipro- priation by the legislature Imt it is the opinion of several state officers that plans should be prepared before the legislature is again in session in order that a definite idea may be had of the size of an appropriation needed. The legislature last winter made an appropriation of 512.000 for re-building the east steps but the council has permitted it to lapse on the theory that the nione.v would have to be spent all over again when the entire east wing is re-finished. The east steps will therefore continue in their present shabby condition for another two years at least. rwt NOTABLE CANDIDATES SHARP (ONTRAST JIfiAWJf BE-, TWEEN LEWIS AND WILSO.^. ., Oni^ Has Rcen Mitchell's Adviser, Qtk* er Has Opposed Policy of Present Admialstntlen. .I] Indiauapolis, Nov. 11.— Miners and miiie owners arc said to be looking for wuril with much Interest to the coming election of a president of the United Mine Workers of America to suuceed John Mitchell. The nominations will be made In a'few days and the candidates will be chosen this hicimh by a referendum vote. Tom l^is, vice president, and Willlkm B. WLlson, secretary-treasurer, are leading aspirants for the presidency, aniL both are certain of nomination. Several others, including Ryan, ofllliii- ols. may be put forward, but it is con ?cded that I^ewis and Wilson are the real contestants for the honor, with the chances of success almost evenly divided between them. Wilson, who was elected to congress ast year from a Pennsylvania district, has long been the confidential adviser jf John Mitchell and a. consistent supporter of his policies. For this reason he is regarded as the "administra- ion's " candidate, and he will be supported by the class which Mitchell q'ntrolled in the days when the or- " janization was seemingly facing a ?rjsis. Cites Lewis' Record. ^Lewi.-i, on the other hand, has lieen qriite as consistent In his opposition , to Mitcheirt; plans, and at. time baa been so bitter in his opposition that ih open rupture between him and -Mitchell was prevented only by the litervention of mutual friends. One nch occasion existed here at the last . joint conference of the miners and' jierators. when Lewis, backed by the Ohio delegation, and a large part of he Illinois delegation, favored a gen- rul strike. .Mitchell and Wilson, more conservative, wanted to preserve iie joint conferences and favored the ;.-olicy. afterward adopted, of settling" he *Wage question with individual members, just as fast as they would ugree to the advance to which the •jiiners had finally come in conference. Two men. growing up to influential iiositions under the same policies and the same organiaztioh, could hardly >e more unlike than L,ewis and Wilson. The later is cautious, methodical md always conservative, but very de-,. termined when a course of'Action has been decided n>ion. .A.t all th^ national conventions of the organization he as the ready seconder ot everything that Mitchell proposed, and in the de- hates, when fhe passions of men wpre aroused, he was always calm and poke only after seemingly weighing every word, that he was about to utter, Mitchell came to rely upon him even more than he re.'ied upon himself, aiid it could be seen, when the miners, themselves were divided respecting a liplicy to be pursued, that Wilson's position soon became the position of the conservatives in the convention. Said to Be Excitable. Lewis, on the other hai^d, is impetn- bus. often vindicative, in debate, and 'al TO BEGIN REVIVAL MEETINGS. Special Services Open Tonight at Baptist Church. The revival nieeiiigs will begin tonight at the Baptist church conducted by the pastor. Rev. Garfield and Rev. G. W. Cassldy, of Wichita.

He was the leader of the strike sentiment in the last joint conference here, and was bitterly opposed to any settlements that did not include every mine owner employing union labor. The yo«ng men were with hiiu to a man. and it wsa oiily by.constant appeals on the con-' vention floor and in the lobbies of the hotels that the conservatives won over a sufficient number of '2lelegatea to carry the day against him. So popular Is he with thia class'of minera that he received more votes for vice president at the last election tl^ were cast for Mitchell for president, and for several years hfB followers have insisted that he stand for the presidency of the organiaztlon against- Mitchell himself.
