THE KANSAS CITY JOURNAL, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1898. GREGORY DENOUNCED ORGANIZED LnOR WILL FIGHT HIM TO THE BITTER ED. THE INDUSTRIAL COUNCIL ACTS IlESOLLTIONS hCOniNG HI3I ADOPTED WITH ETHUbIAS3f. TnnieJ E. Fitxsrernld, Who Hopes to Beronie n. Meutb, Trim to Meni Hie Tide of Otiioltinn Labor Sinus Meeting Jcxt Jnndnj-. Tho Industrial Council held one of the stormiest tensions In its history at 'abor headquarters, 1117 Walnut street, jester-ddy afternoon. James E. Fitzgerald, dcle-Bato to tho council from the Barbers union, attempted to have resolutions condemning the candidacy of Robert Gregory for the Democratic nomination for major, tabled, as they wero when first Introduced In the council three -Reeks ago. Fitzgerald exhausted all his oratory to defeat the resolution. Nearly all of the meeting was taken, tip In heated debates. Fitzgerald attempted to Ahltenash Gregory's career since he has been police commissioner, but when the resolutions were otcd upon the fact was forcibly demonstrated that Fitzgerald had lost tho last estlgo of his former power In molding the council to his will. Tho resolutions which were adopted denouncing Gregory are as follows: "Whereas, It has been the rule and principle of organized labor all oer the country to combat the existence of Plnkerton detective agencies and Plnkerton methods wherever and whenever possible; and "Whereas, Section 2 of article 1 of the constitution of tho Industrial Council contains the following: 'Its object shall be to take the necessary and proper measures to secure the election of men who will carry out the Ideas expressed In our declaration of principles'; and "Whereas, A person seeking an office In the gift of the people and who has shown a decided preference for PInkertonism and Plnkerton rule in municipal affairs would naturally be In contravention to said declaration of principles of the Industrial Council; and "Whereas, Organized labor has succeeded during the past jear In severely punishing one of Its enemies, the Plnkerton force In this city; and "Whereas. The state officers who forced their rule upon us are still In power; and "Whereas, These same officials are now using their pull as state officers to make one of our political parties nominate the advocate of PInkertonism for major of this cltj: therefore, be it "Resolved. That we, the Indutrial Council, In regular session, representing 13 000 law-abiding citizens, call upon all citizen". Irrespective of party affiliations, and especially upon worklngmcn, to oppose by their vote at the coming primaries any one who has shown himself In favor of Plnkerton rule in police affairs " The resolution was adopted with enthusiasm, and Fitzgerald was In a rage. He Immediately declared that the Industrial Council had no force In politics any more, anjhow. and said that it made very little difference what action the council took in regard to political candidates. He was sharply told It was a case of sour grapes with him. "Fitzgerald Is trjing to emulate the example of Peter Duffy," declared one delegate to a reporter for The Journal. "He and Duffy used to run things In the council, but those times are past, Duffy was appointed a detective on the police force by Gregory and Scarrltt. In the hope that he- would be able to hold the council in line with the commissioners on the Valllns appointment. Duffy and Fitzgerald were both on the committee mat made the Armour 'settlement' deal. That thing alwajn had a bad flavor about It. and Duffy was turned down In the council as soon ai we had a chance at him. Fitzgerald wanted to be a detective also, but he saw how the wind was blowing, and made as little stir as possible then. He kept in the background as much as possible, in hopes we would forget his connections withDuffy. A few months ago he began taking an active Interest In things again. Several of us have it straight that Gregory has promised Fitzgerald a Job If he would hold the council In line. He got up to-day and made one of his hot speeches, but we gave It to him In the neck. If Fitzgerald were to run for an office he couldn't hold a corporal's irtiird In the council. He has been holding too many conferences with Rob Gregory." The council will follow out the sentiments expressed In Its resolution and will begin nn active campaign against the candidacy of Gregory. A mass meeting of union men was announced for next Sunday afternoon at lAbor headquarters, 1117 Walnut street. A platform will bo prepared, containing all of the Important demands of organized labor at the hands of the office holders. Those candidates who refuse to signify their Intention of standing on the platform pre-Twred by the unions will be fought bitterly. "This action will bp taken on account of the candidacy of two members of tho board of education for re-election." said one cXcgntc to the council. "The members of the cchool board have expressed themselves as opposed to union labor and we propose to put men In their places who will respect us. Wo don't expect the two members who are now candidates for renomtnatlon to sign our platform." SHE FAINTED AT THE GRAVE. Mrs. John Hoblnaon. Found Unconscious In Elimvood C'e meter). Weakened by hours of weeping and chilled through and through by the cold, Mrs. John Robinson fell fainting jesterday across tho grave of her husband In Elm-wood cemetery. She laj on tho damp and cold sod of the grave till accidcnt.illy discovered by pcoplo visiting tho cemetery. She could not be nrous-cd and the police ambulance was sent for. Tollce Surgeon Longan revived her and tho ambulance took her to her home, 921 Cedar street. John Robinson died January 1. His wife was devoted to him and her grief at the funeral was so deep that medicine had to lie given her to quiet her nerves. ach Sundav s-lnco the funeral Mrs. Robinson has visited the grave In Elmwood ccm-rterj. It seemed to her friends that time made her grler deeper Instead of lightening It. Yesterday Mrs. Robinson went early In the forenoon alone to her husband's grave. It Is supposed that the got upon her knees and bent over the grave, weeping and mourning, until she became weak and chilled from the damp earth and then she fainted. It was 2 o'clock when she was found. She may h-n c lain there for hours. After she was revived bj Police Surgeon lxmgan. and realizing where she wa&, she begged to lo left alone.

Returns From a Three Weeks' Vacation In the East With Encouraging Reports as to the Business Outlook for 180S. "Prosperity has come and It looks as If It had come to stay," fcald Mr. W. A. Rule, cashier of the National Bank of Commerce, who returned jesterday from a three weeks' -vacation spent In New York, Boston and other Eastern cities. This Is the first vacation he has enjojed In six j ears and it was marred by the 6evere weather which prevailed during most of his stay in the East, "The business outlook In the East Is most encouraging." said Mr. Rule. "Everj-body Is hopeful and encouraged. The feeling in financial circles was never better. One thing which pleased me greatly was the cordial feeling which prevails toward Kansas City In the Eastern money centers Financiers and investors look upon this city as one of the most promising fields for investment In the country. I found no occasion to apologize for coming from Kansas City. In fact, Kansas City has passed the apologizing stage and is. looked upon in a ver favorable light. I heard only good words for this city while I was away. "The business men of the East look for a record-breaking business during the current j ear. The trade reviews all speak most hopefully and show that the spring trade has already begun In earnest, considerably In advance of the season. There Is no longer uneasiness In financial circles, for the llrtanclal policy of the government Is unchangeable for at least four jears more. It does one good to mingle with the men who have their fingers on the business pulse of the country. It Is a good antidote for the blues which sometimes afflict the . business men of the West. "I don't believe we ever have any cold weather out here at all. I thought we did, but I never knew what cold weather was until I was caught in the blizzard which swept over Boston, New York and the East generally. The blizzard was at Its worst In Boston, though the greatest amount of snow fell In New York. The cold In Boston was simply terrible and the storm was one of the worst In years. "It was a great sight to see 10.000 men clearing the streets of New York of the mountains of snow which had fallen. I don't believe I ever saw so much snow In my life as I did on the streets of New York." ARE YOU TO LIVE IN ALASKA? Some Requirements That Will Be Found Indispensable. The universal article of diet In that country, depended upon and Indispensable. Is bread or biscuit. And to make the bread and biscuit, either In the camp or upon the trail, jeast cannot be used It must be baking powder; and the powder manufactured bj the processes of the Rojal Baking Powder Company, miners and prospectors have learned, Is the only one which will stand In that peculiar climate of cold and dampness and raise the bread and biscuit .satisfactorily. These facts are very important to every one proposing to go to Alaska and the Yukon country to know, for should he be persuaded by some outfitter to take one of the cheap brands of baking powder. It will cost Just as much to transport It, and then when he opens It for use. after all his labor in packing it over the long and difficult route, he will find a solid caked mass or a lot of spoiled powder, with no strength and useless. Such a mistake might lead to the most serious results. Alaska Is no place in which to experiment in food, or try to economize with jour stomach. For use In such a climate, and under the trjing and fatiguing conditions of life and labor in that countrj', everj thing must be the best and most useful, and. above all. It is imperative that all food supplies shall have perfect keeping qualities It is absurd to convey over such difficult and expensive routes an article that will deteriorate In trarslt. or that will bo found when required for use to have lost a great part of Its value. There Is no better guide to follow in then: matters than the advice of those who have gone through Mmllar experience. Mr. McQucten. who is called "the father of Alaska," after an experience of j ears upon the trail. In the camp and in the use of everj- kind of supply, sajs: "We And In AHska that the Importance of a proper kind of baking powder cannot be overestimated. A miner with a can of bad baking powder Is almost helpless In Alaska. We have tried all sorts, and have been obliged to settle down to use nothing but the Rojal. It is stronger and carries further, but, above all things. It is the only powder that will endure the severe climatic changes of the Arctic region." It is for the same reasons th.it the U. S government, in its relief expeditions, and Peary, the famous Arctic traveler, have carried the Rojal Baking Powder cxcluslvelj-. The Rojal Raking Powder will not cake nor lose Its strength either on board ship or in damp climates and is the most highly concentrated and efficient of leavening agents Hence it Is indispensable to every Alaskan outfit. It can be hud of any of the trading companies in Alaska, but should the miner procure his supplies before leaving, he should resist everj- attempt of the outfitter to palm off upon him any of the other brands of baking powder, for thev will spoil and prove the cause of great disappointment and trouble. flic Price for a Ilroken Henrt.

Though It Is a pretty high estimate of blighted affection, there Is another estimate which If not In dollars and cents exactly as high, jet In general consideration of excellence reaches as lofty an altitude. That Is the estlmitc of the people In their general verdict ns to the efficacy of Hostctter's Stomach Bitters as a remedy for constipation. The action of this gentle, but effective, laxative Is never accompanied by the griping and other abdominal disturbance which precedes or accompany the operation of a griping cathartic. Morever, It Is an Incomparable remedy for and preventive of malarial, rheumatic and kidney complaints, a never falling means of lnvlgorat-irg the stomach and nervous system and a promoter of appetite anl sleep.

BIBBLE A SOLDIER AT 17. I.N THREE BIG BATTLES BEFORE HE WAS 18 YE1RS OLD. Interesting Reminiscences of Perils by Land and Sea Initiated Into the Order of Neptune Europe's FIv e Largest Men. Dr. I.e Roy Dibble, of this city, can claim the distinction of having been one of the joungest soldiers In the Federal armj and he made up In experiences what he lacked In jears. He enlisted when he was onlj- 17 jears old In the Seventh Illinois cavalrj and was In three big battles before he was 18 jears old. He was engaged In the scouting service and wore a Confederate uniform for eighteen months. He was in all of the principal engagements during his service with the Army of the Tennessee, the Armj" of the Cumberland and the Armj- of the Gulf. He was at the siege of Port Hudson, which made tne conquest of Vicksburg possible. He was in the battle of Lookout mountain and spent his 21st birthday at the siege of Nashville. He has a bullet In his leg as a blrthdaj" souvenir. The Seventh Illinois cavalrj' owned Its own equipments and was one of the celebrated regiments of the war. Dr. Dibble talks entertalnly of his wartime experience, but it Is of his travels in foreign countries that he talks most Interestlnglj-. "After the close of the war 1 studied medicine," said Dr. Dibble, the other day, in recounting his experiences, ' and immediately after taking my degree I shipped on board a steamer as ship surgeon and visited Hamburg, and the West Indies. Then I went on a coast liner and sailed arcund the Horn. You hear once In awhile of the perils of the Horn, which is called the 'Graveyard of Ships,' but no one who has not been through that gate of hell knows anj thing about It. I was Initiated Into the Order of Neptune, a secret mjstlcal order of sailors. A man who Is a member of that order Is admitted to the innermost councils of the sailors and has opportunities of studjing some of the most Interesting phases of human nature. The candidate is dressed In fantastic garb and Is put through a weird and wonderful, not to saj' grotesque, initlatorj' cere-monj', which he will never forget. He walks the plank and is hurled Into a boat full of water, but of curse he comes out all right and he does not regret his experiences. He learns the folklore of one of the most interesting classes of human beings In this world. This initiation always takes place after we cross the equinoctial current and have passed through the perils of the Horn, to which 1 have referred. The difficulty of passing around the Horn He., In the larjing adverse currents which drive the sailing ships back, often when they have almost gained the quiet water of the Pacific. And, bj- the way, tho Nicaragua canal. If it does nothing more, will save thousands of human lives bv eliminating the dangers of this terrible trip around the Horn. "Once safely around the Horn, I visited all the South American countries that touch either coast. One of the features of such a trip Is the mjriads of Insects which render life absolutely unendurable at certain seasons. Some of the Insects are -verj- beautiful and not all pestiferous. There are swarms of the most beautiful butterflies and millions of moths, fifteen inches from wing to wing. "After my experiences In South America, I went to Europe and stajed two jears In the great UniverIty of Zurich, Switzerland, taking an advanced course in medicine. This was In 1SS2, and during my stay in Zurich I had the pleasure of renewing a wartime acquaintance wlth President Frj', of the Swiss republic, who was an army comrade of mine during the war of the rebellion. He was In this country when the war broke out and served gallantly until taken prisoner. He was confined In Anderonvllle and was one of the three men who succeeded in making their escape from that terrible place. ' One of the most Interesting sights I ever saw was when I saw the five greatest men of Europe standing side bv side. It was at the dedication of the Nleder-wald, a magnificent monument. There was the old Kaiser William I., who was C feet 2; Bismarck, the Iron chancellor, who was 6 feet 1; Count Von Moltke. 6 feet 4, General Von Waldersee, G feet 6, a veritable giant, and Kaiser Tritz, the father of the present emperor, who was C feet 4. Count Von Moltke. one of the greatest generals of the age, looked a great deal like our own General Sherman and during the hitter's stay In Europe was frequently mistaken -for him It is related that General Sherman make a call upon Von Moltke in citizen's dress. The Germans are verj punctilious and the Berhnese were astounded to see Count Von Moltke go to General Sherman's hotel, also In civilian garb, something he was never known to do before."

S MUSIC AM) THE DRAM4. s s s $4'$;"$.XxJ3xJ. 3j '&$&&$!&& "What Happened to Jones" Is a most humorously suggestive name for a farce comedy, jet it is wholly inadequate to Insinuate the numerous and .varied things that occurred to the fellow whose homely appellation figures In the title. Mr. George H. Broadhurst, the author, is a farceur of imaginative and inventive resources, and while it is Inevitable that he should use many ideas that have been variously played upon by his predecessors, he has departed most creditably and .successful from the beaten path In many Instances. It would be a hopeless task to tell all that happened to Jones, but the title maj-be supplemented bj a few remarks for tho benefit of those who want their Imagination quickened. Jones is a "drummer" for hjmnbooks and plajing cards. Among the personages associated with him are a circumspect professor, with an exacting wife, two confiding daughters and a joung ward who is not so confiding; the professors brother, a bishop; a spinster, in love with the bishop; a friend of Jones', in love with one of the confiding daughters, a demented fellow who thinks he Is an Indian; a policeman, in pursuit of Jones, and a Swedish servant girl who raij be Intrusted with family secrets if she is well paid. The scenes are laid In the professor's house, where Jones is made welcome by the host because the former had made the latter's acquaintance at a prizefight that ended in a row, in which both Jones and the professor were participants, and Jones Is necessary to account for the professor's black eye. The pursuit of the police makes it expedient for Jones to disguise himself, and he dons the dress of the bishop, who Is due to arrive from Australia, but who has had a suit ordered in advance. Jones takes the place of the bishop-brother, the bishop-uncle, the bishop-sweetheart, and even maintains his incognito after the real bishop arrives, who. In turn, is mistaken for the man who thinks he is an Indian. The situations are extremely amusing and the lines are exceptionally clever, the whole being one of the most delightful farce comedies brought out in jears, its continuous merriment and evident popularity- being a striking demonstration of the fact that a light comedy may be a big monej- maker and jet be whollj- decent If Mr. Broadhurst keeps up the standard he has set in this play, he will be a boon to the large contingent of theatergoers who like to laugh without being ashamed of themselves. The onlj- shortcoming In the com-edj-, and that Is not a serious one, is that two or three of the scenes are prolonged unnecessary, therefore, inexpediently, for In this sort of folly briskness Is the salt of the seasoning. Mr. George Boniface is peculiarly fitted In the title part, and revels In the privileges and fumbles through the embarrassments of the incognito, making the most of the numerous points, and is so resourceful at every turn that it becomes not so much a question of what happened to Jones as what Jones did to the other people. Mr. Leonard Grover, Jr., plajs the professor verj' efTectlv elj and Mr. Reuben Fax. the erstwhile Svengali, makes a good deal of the poor bishop. Among the women in this cast conspieuouslj- clever work Is done bj-Miss Mattie Ferguson as the maid servant. Miss Anna Belmont as Cissy, and Mrs. E. A. Eberle as the spinster, other people of consequence In this excellent cast are Mr. William Bernard, Mr. Cecil Kingston, Mr. J. W. Cope, Miss Kathrjn Osterman, Miss Annie Haines and Miss Florence Robinson. Mr. Cope has the credit of putting a real policeman on the stage. The new comedy was presented at the Grand jesterdaj-afternoon and hist night to big audiences and will run at this theater for the week. AUSTIN L.ATCHAW. The last but one of the regular series of Philharmonic concerts was given at the Coates opera house jesterday afternoon, and, like the others given at this place, was verj- largely attended. The Increasing popularity of these concerts suggests the expcdlencj- of supplementing the regular season with two or three extras, and it is appropriate to call attention thus early to the fact that such additions are under contemplation. Mr. Busch has accomplished what has never been accomplished before In Kansas Cltj popularized Sunday concertsand it seems but reasonable that he should be able to continue his excellent entertainments through the regular theatrical and musical season , Yesterdaj's programme was pecullarlv-sulted to the occasion, for while It lacked anj conspieuouslj- strong noveltj- or big standard number, it was exceedinglj- well chosen from a popular standpoint. It opened with the "Rosamunde" overture, which it Is alwajs a delight to hear, especially when it is so well plajed as it was on this occasion This was followed bj- a dilnty novelty. Floershelm's miniature suite. "Liebes-novelle." in ix parts serenade, ldjl, waltz, avowal, happiness and bridal procession a series of passages that tell a pretty and consecutive storj. This was the first time the number was plajed In America. It would seem to be destined to become im-menselj- popular when once generallj- introduced, for it is a delightful fancj. thoroughly rom mtic in spirit and orchestral treatment, the Id j I. waltz, and declaration of happiness being cspeclallj- graceful and suggestive. The number was delightfully interpreted. This orchcctra has never before plajed Hungarian dance muIc so effectively as the two Brahms pieces were plajed jesterdaj. Thej were given with the essential sweep, rjthm and abandon, and pleased so well that they were repeated. Another verj- popular number was the orchestral arrangement ol the familiar Raff cavatina. A little reverie, for string instruments, written bj Mr. Harold Hujs. of this city, reflects much credit upon this j-oung composer, for it is exceedinglj- delicate and artistic, and was so well plajed that a repetition was enthusiastically demanded. The other orchestral number was tho ever beautiful and alwajs popular "Danube" waltz. The soloist was Miss Ora Mowe, a joung soprano of this city. who. In tho singing of "O, Mio Fernando," dlsplajed a voice of good quality and much flexibility, as well as considerable culture. "South Before the Aar," a somewhat spectacular- pi ij- representing plantation life, opened a halt week's engagement at the Gllliss jesterdaj afternoon It is designed to show the life and characteristics of the negro race In the old d us, and these points are emphasized bj- the fact that the whole cast Is made up of colored people The features that are alwajs popular with the public are the plantation scenes, lntrodut ing singing and dancing, the com-panv Including several verj- excellent dancers and three quartettes of more than ordlnarj- merit William I'crrj', who bills himself as the "hum in frog," is entitled to his name, for he is a most wonderful acrobat and contortionist There is a levee scene, showing the lindlng of a steamboit and Incldcntallj introducing some of the best buck and wing dancing in the play.

A complete change of spechltles will be made at the Orpheum this evening, with the exception of the Hungarian band, Le Rov, the magician, and the hlogriph, although the last will present entirely new pictures.

History of Its Founding; Its Charter Members Mode of Operation Those Who Lite Within Its Walls. The home for friendless women and Cushlng hospital arc the two institutions occupjing the large brick building which stands upon an acre of ground in South Leavenworth. The home has been at the present location since 1S70, but the board of managers who started the enterprise organized as early as 1S8. At first the home was situated In a private dwelling house on Fifth avenue, and before occupjing its own building It was located at four different places. The city of Leavenworth furnished the ground and the state the funds for the building which now comprise the home. Among the charter members of the board of managers were: Mrs. A. B. Havens, Mrs. Francis Newbj-, now of Kansas Citj-. Mo.; Mrs. Fairchlld, Mrs. Jason Richardson, Mrs. J. L Liggett, now of Detroit, Mich.; Mrs. Judge Gray, now of Kansas Cltj, Kas.; Mrs. Colonel Coffin. Of the charter members, only five are now living, and of these Mrs. Havens Is thj onlj- one now residing at Leavenworth For a time the home had a fund from the state, but that has ceased and it Is now dependent upon private donations A board of managers, with Mrs. S. A. Lord as resident, has control or affairs. Mrs. ord was preceded bj- Mrs. Cushlng, who held the presidencj- for thlrtj- jears. The board prints a monthlj- sheet which Is circulated throughout the state to make known the fact of the home's establishment, and emplojs two solicitors who make a canvass for donations. Within the home the management devolves upon the matron, now Miss Emma Zimmerman, and her assistant, Mrs. Fitzgibbens. Miss Zimmerman is general ov erseer, w hlle Mrs. Fitzgibbens has particular charge of kitchen and dining room. The inmates of the home do all the work. The Refuse It Furnishes. The girls who seek refuge in the home for the friendless are generallj- either joung, motherless, or are girls who have been sent awaj- from home at an early age to work out in private families or in hotels Thej are of an unfortunate, rather than of an inherently wicked, class. When girls who are able to pay board come to tl e home thej are expected to do so, and are also permitted to leave when they choose. Charitj- Inmates, however, are required to staj six months, and at the end of that time an effort is made by the board of managers to find them places to work among respectable people. Estimates from 5,000 to 8,000 have been made of the number of Inmates who have been at the home since its establishment. The average number is a little over a dozen, though there are at present at the home twenty Inmates and three Infants. The average age of girls who applj- for admission Is 17. and the majpritj- of them after leaving the home develop into good women There have been several notable Instances where girls who have been In the home, have afterward taken up professions and led extremely useful lives. One of them Is the case of a joung woman who Is now- practicing medicine in one of the Middle states, and another Is that of a girl who has become a trained nurse. The Hospital. The wing which is now used for hospital purposes was originally intended exclusively for a maternity hospital, but has gradually come to be put to general hispltal use. In connection with the hospital is a training school for nurses, under the direction of the Leavenworth phjsicians, who. In turn, give lectures. The staff at present consists of Dr. W. J. Van Kman, president; Dr. S. B. Langworthj-, Dr. A. F. Yohe, Dr. W. W. Walter, Dr. C. R. Carpenter. The nurses hav e flv e lectures a week, one everj- evening. They gain practical cx- fierience by work In the hospital and also n the home. If occasion demands, they are sent into the rity to nurse private patients, or even out of town. After they have taken up the work thej- are at the service of the managers for one year. At the end of that time they have received in leturn four jears' board, training, a diploma and an honorable discharge. The Resident Physician. When the home for the friendless was established in 1S6S Mrs. Elizi N. Morgan volunteered her services as attending phj-Elciin, and gave them gratuitiouslj for a number of jears Later she waj em-plojed with the nominal salarj- of $200 a j ear until her own increasing practice compelled her to resign. Dr. Stockham was then emplojed as resident phjsician until tho time when the state appropriation wis cut off. The medical faculty of the training now has charge of the home patients, and the nurses in training take care of the sick. Mrs. Lord, when asked if the work done bj- the home was encouraging, replied that, on the whole. It was: th it the girls who leave the home start out upon the path of rectitude and keep it under the good Influences that tho board of managers seeks to place them when it gives them their dismissal The managers also undertake to find homes for the children born at the home, and often succeed in placing them in families where they will grow up under the best of management. ST. LOUIS EDITORS WORRIED. Indorsement of the Plan to Hold an Exposition in This City Causes Adverse Comment. A St. Louis paper gets alarmed over the fact that the Kansas Editorial Association indorsed Kansas City as the place In which to hold the Louisiana Purchase exposition in 1003. It is represented to be the fault of St. Louis for if the right sort of attention had been given the Kansas editors, most certainly no such action would have been taken, according to the liver-fogged Ideas of the St. Louis paper. It is the impression of the aforesaid paper that Kansas City has no right to aspire to anj thing and especiallj- is it bad taste for the Kansas Editorial Association to suggest that Kansas City Is a central point in the Louisiana purchase terrltorj-and hence should be deflnitelj- selected as the location of the exposition. This is a terribly bad suggestion, according to the opinion expressed. COMMUNICATION. Train Robber and Banker Statistics.

TEMEPRANCE llttiED AS ItUltlUir FOR PHESDNT CONDITIONS. Old 3Ian Proceeds to Outline Ills Theory, Despite Points of Order Excused as m Victim of Circumstances. The socialists conducted their own meeting at Reformers' hall, 1117 Walnut street, jesterdaj afternoon. Some of the ardent advocates .of social revolution found an oprortunltj- to speak for the first tlmo In weeks The single tax followers were present jesterdaj in as large a number as at the last previous meeting, when thej-were given to understand that in the future thej could keep their theories to themselves or rent a hall themselves. Thej sat in a group in the rear of the hall, closelj observing the proceedings. It was plain that thej intended taking charge of the meeting at the first opportunitj. The socialists ignored their presence and Chairman Cunningham hinted that the socialists would not tolerate anj- speeches on the part of the single taxers. He said that those- who asked the privilege of the floor must indicate th it thej intended to stick clcselj to the subject announced for the meeting. ' Some Methods of Obtaining Socialism." The old socialists settled into their chairs for a love feast, when W. A. Newbert began reading his paper on this subject. He strongly urged the establishment of the postal sav Ings bank sjstem as the first Important step to be taken. Every bodj would patronize the postal savings bank, he said, and the present banking Institutions would go out of business for lack ot depositors. With the proceeds from the postal savings bank the government would begin bujlng railroads, telegraph and telephone sj stems and other means of transportation and communication, and with the profits derived from these investments the work ot placing everj institution in the country upon a co-operative basis would be carried rapldlj- forward, he said. He would have the land taken and distributed according to the needs of each individual, Vanderbllts and Astors would have no place to Invest their millions, and would be forced to place their monej- in the government banks, because all others would be driven out of existence. The government could then Invest their millions in the interest of the people. He told of beautiful palaces that would be the homes of the people who now live In hovels, ot beautiful flower gardens, of short hours of labor, of great opportunities for development and education. In art, in music and in literature. Bald-headed, grizzled-bearded men with deep lines of discontent in their faces sat under the speaker's voice enraptured. Fln-allj- the speaker concluded. For some minutes no one moved excepting the single taxers, who were looking for a chance to start an argument. FInallj- an old man took the floor. He was a conspicuous figure at the tlrst few meetings of the socialists last fall the meetings held before the single taxers Induced the socialists to believe that arguments on the two theories of reform would be a good thing for the socialists. At one of those meetings the old man. who Is an ex-preacher of the Mormon faith, asked to be conv erted to the new faith of socialism. He found It hard work keeping body and soul together In preaching. He had strayed into the socialist meeting without knowing what It was. He heard one speaker tell of the milk and honey that would flow throughout the land free to all when socialism was a fact. It pleased the old preacher. Yesterday he declared that he perfectlj" understood socialism. "My brethren," he declared.as ho warmed up to his speech. "Mj- brethren, understand, jou must give up the things that destroj-the bodj-. Therefore cease jour evil habits, understand, it is whlskj-. tobacco and opiates that make men weak minded and cause the rapid increase In the number of suicides to which the first speaker referred as the result of our present social condition, understand." At this point one of the socialists rose to a point of order. The single taxers were illv concealing their mirth. "The brother is not keeping to tho subject." appealed the one who had interrupted the speaker. "I am simply dealing with the broad subject of socialism," declared the old man, amazed at the interruption. "As I was saj-ing. understand." he continued, while the chairman was unable to pass on the point raised. "We should not use this medicine that makes our head buzz, understand, that medicine, let me see quinine, that's it quinine unaerstano. tnereiore we snoum not use so much ot that medicine. It destroj s our mental powers. And now, my brethren, understand, to return to the main subject again. I think the postal savings bank would be a good idea, understand. There would be no need to fear footpads when we have socialism. There would be no need of monev. Every man would have his own home and means of production. He could put his monej- in the postal bank. But. therefore, what is the use of saving when we have soci illsm' Everj man's needs will be provided for. We will all live in luxurj-. What will be the use of saving? Understand, my brethren, then we will not need to fear the hlghwajmen. Therefore, let us work for socialism and stop using these things which destroj- our Again a point of order was raised. It was argued and the chairman ruled that the speaker had taken up all the time allowed for discussion. "He s a splendid example of the effect of the present social condition." said one socialist after the meeting adjourned. But the single taxers had not gotten In a word and thej- left the hall looking crestfallen.
