The Mitchell's weren't in it. The gov-ernor and the pugilist were both bested in the briefest bouts. . -. r Mtli-lilro tnrnpr Pugilist Mitchell appears to have been as easily knocked out by Corbelt as Governor Mitchell was by the court. If Mr. Jack-son will now please step into the ring and do up Mr. Corbett there will bo very general satisfaction. The ice crop is coming forward in rreat form, and with the right kind of tveather will be harvested in good shape. The "Wilson bill ia a measure to beat American labor, to increase the wealth of Great Britain and to incidentally help Canada our. Tom Reed is growing so fat laughinc over the predicaments of the Democratic house that his belt had to be let out several inches. 'Give the Indians all their rights, but do no wrong to American whites,"' is the poetic way Sam Small put the statehood question. Should President Dole now peremptorily bounce Mr. Willis from the island fifty millions of hats and bonnets would simultaneously sail into the air. The consensus of opinion is that Dave Hill is a good deal of a dog in the manger. LJecauso ho cannot dictate appointments to fedeial positions outside the state of New York he stands there and refuses to allow any to be confirmed. Mrs. Lease has gone to Omaha to confer with old Jim Weaver. TJer caravan-Farying experience with him about the country two years ago was enough to have satisfied any less persistent seeker after notoriety in that direction. Mr..E. P. Gallup of this city and Miss Lilian Harness of Hutchinson were married in the latter place Monday night. It was not a run-away match, but the pencil punsters -will rig them on their double teaming just the same. Representative Bland's declaration that tho prevailing policy of running the government, if persisted in, is enough to damn any admistration,is correct, to a point. Still, and nevertheless, the administration don't seem to givo a d -. Mr. Frank L. Brown of Garnett, who Is secretary of tho Republican state central committee, is announced as a candidate for secretary of state. Mr. Brown proved a faithful and capable woiker in the kst campaign, in which he made many friends. Tho Philadelphia Recoid, a leading Democratic journal, calls the Hawaiian policy of Mr. Cleveland, "the most sadly ludicrous diplomatic affair of which there is any record in modern history." ft would be moro ludicrous if it wero less sadly humiliating to us as a leading nation. Tho fish commissioner's report for 1S93 trill bo out of the stale printer's hands fn a few days and it will be quite a book an fish culture and pond buildings. It will bo" sent free to all who will send stamp for same to J. W. Wampler, Kan-fas State Fish Commissioner, Brazil ton, Crawford county, Kan. When a mill or factory starts up from a long season of idleness every Democrat in tho land shouts tho occurrence. That is becauso it is so rare. But these same vociferators are as silent as shrimps over the continued closing down of such establishments. That is because it is so common under their party legime. The resolution passed by the Colorado legislature asking congress to pass a law allowing tho payment of contracts in lawful money is too silly to bo seriously considered. Tho intent of such an act. if it could be secured, is to change the terms of existing contracts, which the federal constitution expressly foibids. Senator Hill is allowing his presidential aspirations to carrr him too far in his fight against Cleveland, which calls into conspicuous play tho very traits that have made the president so obnoxious to his party, that of autocratic dictation. Clovelandjsm would be no less cdious practiced by Hill, or anybody else as for that. Carlisle's pretext for Issuing bonds in small denominations, that it will make the loan popular as far as the great mass of the people aro concerned, is equivalent to giving a stone in answer to tho appeal for bread, or worse. Mr, Carlisle knows, or ought to know, that only the capitalists of the country have money with which to buy bonds in any form. It is suggested that should Mrs. Lease come off finally victorious in her combat with Governor Lewelling it will make her a strong candidate for a place on the presidential ticket of tome party in 1S90. Maybe so, and if so what would be the matter with harnessing her up with Governor Waito of Colorado? There'd bo plenty of gore and brimstone fumes in tho campaign. Tho cut to one-h:.lf in the rate of freight on grain from Kansas City to Chicago, made by the Santa Fe road, ought to givo Kansas farmers a corresponding laise in the prices they receive for those pioducts, and would if there was any way to pievent tho market gamblers fiom begging it. As it is, there is not much lupe for any benefit from the cut at this end cf tho line. Twenty native Hawaii -students, now attending Yale xmiversity, held a banquet the other night, at which they unanimously glorified Dole and abused Cleveland, and the Democratic organs aie howling about it. As these young gentlemen are brighttind intelligent, fully comprehending the whole situation, and paying their own bills, we don't see how the aforesaid Tammany mouth piece-ic going to help themselves, AGAINST BOND ISSUES. The proposition to issue bonds by a state or corporation, anywhere, iff as unpopular just now as that announced by the secretary of the treasury is proving to be. The last legislature of Tennessee caused an act authorizing the issue of state bonds for the purpose of bu ild-ing a new penitentiary. But the financial situation in general showing so little sign of improvement, a good many citizens of that slate felt that it was inexpedient to increase the burden upon the taxpayers and petitioned the governor to convene the legislature in special session to repeal the bond act. Governor Turney declines to do so, though, upon the ground of expenso to the state of an extra session, and for the further reason that tho new bonds, which are to bear but 4J per cent, inteiest. can be used to retire outstanding G per cent, bonds that will fall due in a short time. The governor seems to bo right, though the incident serves to show general an-tipathr to issuing bond-. Everybody feels that the country has been burdened along that line quite enough, and they want a rest. ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC ISSDE. Whether by advice from Washington or not, J. Scott Hanison holds on to the office in Kansas City to which lie was appointed during the recess between the extra session in tho fall and the regular session of congress in December, notwithstanding his appointment was rejected by the senate at Senator Vest's dictation. And the istue thus joined may call for intervention by the supi erne couit, to determine wiiat is meant by the constitutional provision of "ly and with the advice and consent of the sen-ale,' in regard to presidential appointments. It is announced from Washington that Senator Vest, with whom it has become a personal matter at least ho proposes to make it sucli and his colleagues will call on Secretary Carlisle for an explanation of tho continued retention of Harrison in office. It is the first time in the history of the government that it has been necessary to raise this question and there never was a better time than this to settle it conclusively. THE TRUTH NOT IN THEM, In January, 1890, there was a meeting of general fi eight agents in Chicago to devise means for holding tho representatives of competing roads to an ironclad agieement on rates made at a previous meeting. There had been other conferences for the same purpose, eacli failing to secure the desired lesult. The chairman, on this occasion, in stat'ng the object of the meeting, was felicitous in this manner: ''Gentlemen," said he, "as neighbors and fiiends I respect you; as men of social and business standing I hold you as my peers, but as freight agenls and tiaffic managers you are wholly unreliable and the truth is not in you. You havo not only signed an agreement which is subjected to but one interpretation, but you have repeatedly met here to confirm it and pledge your word of honor to fibide by its terms, but befoio the ink was dr on your new made pledges you havo violated every pio-vision of the contract. It is useless to reaffirm your purpose to stand by it, for I would not believe you under oath." This language of a veteran in railway servico supplies a wholesome text for our commissioners in dealing with tho3e attorneys who have the face to ignore a definite contract, and are now asking their adversaries to consent to it. Whether this is an essential feature of ruilroad management, or whether it induces a certain moral obliquity which prohibits the clan from looking a fair business proposition squaiely in the face or not, wo aie not advised, but it is a fact that contracts with this class are too often founded inlaw like those of tho Medos and Persians. The declaration of principles of the American Protective association, as promulgated by tho meeting atBloomington, Ills., Wednesday, embodies the sentiments of ninety-nine out of every 100 loyal American citizens, which fact obviates any necessity that might otherwise seem to exist to organize in any form to combat the things complained of, and certainly not in the form of secret political societies. There is good reason to believe that this new move is a Democratic trick to draw strength from the Republican party, as in the inception of the Farmeis Alliance and its evolution into the Populist part-. True Republican principles aro amply sufficient to guard the social and political, as well as tho material. " interests of Ameiican citizens, and there is no room for secresy in or about it. T. Dwight Thacher, it is said, was writing a history of Kansas, by easy stages, previous to his death. Every Kansan who knew the man will regiet that lie had not finished tl.e work. No man in the state was better equipped in every respect for a historical riter, and no man knew more of the men and measures ot the past that went to make Kansas what it is as a state. Every writer so far who has essayed that role has been warped by partisan or personal prejudices to such a decree as to do in-jnsiice to both the" living and the dead. Mrs. Lease says sbe has written considerable poetry herself. She is trumping Lewellin; at every move. Kausax Chief. Mrs. Lease first attracted public attention through poetical contributions to the EaGLE, and all of it was stipeiior to anything ever produced in the lyrical line by L. D. Lewelling. In particular there was an acrostic which the editor of the Eagle will be compelled to cherish to his dying day. Whatever else ni3y bo said of 'Mollie unquestionalby she is inspired with the divine afflatus in no ordinary degree. Tiie anti-fusion Democrats, and they embrace practically the entire party in Kausas, have a raJy and gamey champion in the editor of the Topeka Democrat, who is a Jacksonian of the strictest sect. Hear him: lie is a double dyed traitor to Deraocracv who tleslres turouca fnsion, to ee any further dishonor brought upon the Democratic party. Every cmiditi juhI thoughtful Democrat knows thatanotber cowardiv-nd disgraceful surrender like that of 1$?2 would comnlete the destruction of in? .euiuant of Democntcx iu this state. There are a number of differnt sorts of Democrats in congress just now more than ever before. There are Jefferson-ians, Jacksonians, Tildenites, Cleveland-ites, andsoforlh and-so-on. But judging from their attitude on the tariff issue General Hancock seems to have as many devotees as any of the saints, dead or living. It was the hero of Gettysburg, it will be remembered, who declared that the tariff is a local question, to be settled by tho voters of the congressional districts a3 their interests dictate. With the Democrats the tariff is not one or priuciple, but one of political expediency. Tiie Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad company having complied with the provision of their charter, that requires them to maintain headquarters in this state, by re-establishing their general offices at Parsons, Attoinsy Geueial Little's peisibtency iu prosecuting the company on that point is something of a mystery, unless it be to make a little personal political capital. He is certainly not justified by the present status of the case nor the popular demand therefor. Had if. not been for G rover Cleveland the United States would prob.ibly be pari tic a big pension to rbe deposed queen of Hawaii. Kansas City Star. And had it not been for Cleveland tho stars and stripes would today b9 floating over the most important coaling, naval and postal station in the Pacific ocean, while Claus Spreckies would have been junketing with somebody else than the president of the United States, to the shame and humiliation of every self respecting American citizen. Evidently the Topeka Press feels towaids lawyers like the Chinaman does towards tho negro, as indicated in John's remark that "me no likee niglee muche anlywrty." The Press welcomed the State Bar association to that city, Wednesday, with this: "If you want to know tho proper penally for crime, con sult their works and essays, but if you want to know how to escape that penalty consult the lawyers in person," THE PROMINENT DEAD OF KANSAS trom the Kansas Chief. T. Dwight Thatcher, mentioned last week as having been stricken with apoplexy, tho previous Saturday, died Wednesday afternoon, at 1 o'clock. Ho completed his G2J year, the last October. He came to Kansas in April, 183G, and started the Lawrenco Republican the last week in May of the same year. What Ts there about Kansas that kills off her prominent men at compaiatively an early age ? Ate they too fast ? We do not now use that term as it is generally understood, meaning dissipated or licentious; but wo mean that thoy rush and push, carrying too much mental and physical steam. It is rush and boom, in whatever they do. In politics, in business, in everything else, everything is carried on with a rush. The man who is inclined to take tilings slow and easy, does not amount to much in Kansas. The lesult is that the leading man weais out his machinery young, and collapses. Back about a quarter of a century ago, the Lawience Journal was in charge of a trio who have ever since bein spoken of as a lemarkable aggiegation of intellect They weie T. Dwight Thacher, Isaac S. Kalloch and Milton W. Reynolds all bright in their way, but all wholly dissimilar in almost every lespect. The combination did not last long it could not, with such mateiial but all of the three are now dead, and all except Thacher died considerably under UO years of age. Kalloch was tho only one tho three that led a course of life calculated to shorten his days. The other two were temperate and moral. But we find the same rule holds good regai ding leading men generally in the political affairs of Kansas. Look back, and see how they have mostly died young. General Lane died at the ago ot 52. Had he not taken his own life, it is haidly probable that, with his peculiar temperament, ho would have lived to be CO. His mind was wrecked when he took his own life. So many of these men either died suddenly, or with shat-teied minds. Governor Carney died suddenly, not over GO years of age. Marcus J. Pairett died insane, at the age of only 51. Martin F. Conway also died with his mind greatly irnpahed, at tho ago of 52. P. B. Plumb died suddenly, at the age of 54. Cart. Wilder died at the age of 47. Stephen A. Cobb died, not exactly suddenly, but after brief illness, and, it w a said, with mind affected, at the age of 45. Join A. Martin died at the age of 51, after a shoi t illness, the only one he had ever had. William A. Phillips was about G7 when he died, and his death was what might be called sudden. There aie no doubt others, whom we do not just now call to mind, who would no doubt be entitled to rank in the same list. The number cf prominent men of loss wido note, leaders of a more local chat acter, would swell the list to largo proportions. Of all the men we have mentioned, it will be seen that but two had passed their GOth year, and not one had reached the three scoie' and ten said to be allotted to man. Ana yet 70 does not seem old. We hardly think of classing men as old, until the' aie approaching their four score years. Among the few prominent men of Kansas, vt ho figured in tho exciting times, who have readied or passed tilth- 75:h year, we recall Governor Robinson, Judge Kins man and John Speer. Of tlte governors, Oabom is undei GO; Crawford, Harvey and Click are but little over GO; and Anthony is under 70. Senator Ingalls is just GO, and Peffer and Martin are but little over GO. A public imiu in Kansas appeals to Lo as old at GO as those of other states aro at 70. They keep up too hot a fire, and burn themselves out. EXCHANGE EPITOMES. Two Hats. Fiom tbe Mlnueacolts Tribune, Governor Lewelling is still of the opinion that Mrs, Loh&p's hat is not on :-traight, and Mary Ellen is still of the opinion that Lewelling uses his for a telephone. Jerry Accounted For. From tfce .Nw York World. If Jeremiah Simpsou of Kansas serves no other good purposes in the economy of nature he at least reminds us that Populism and Democracy differ in degree, not kind. Worse Than the Diseasa. From the Kansas CUy Mar. The physician attending a Lawrence woman who read Browning all day and went to bed with a chill should recommend alternating doses of Algernon Charles Swinburne and Ella Wheeler Wilcox. The Cuckoos Right for Once. From the later Cha. Hie number of able cuckoo Democratic organs whoarebegging"todrop Hawaii, the people are tired of it,shows the desperate straits in which the adminitra-tioa has nlaced itself, after the herculeau effort to make the Hawaiian exhibit the great feature of the period. But the cucoch are right. "The people are tired of it," and tired of the men who instigated the uupatriotic, un-American policy. His Namo i3 Patrols. From the Koalas City Star. They say that Sir. Jerry Simp3on's newest fad is the pronunciation of the broad "a." He says "Kahnsan," "Frahnce" and "glahnce." If iie keeps this up until next November his name will be "pahnts." Tell It Not in Gath. From the Kansas City Gjzette. The Populist board of police commissioners of Leavenworth have levied a regular monthly tax upon joints, gamblers and keepers of disorderly houses and their inmates- What makes the matter singular i3 that one of the board is a woman, and a member, too, of the Populist female suffrage organization. License for Genius. From tho New York bun. For tho benefit of those finical Populists who are inclined to reproach the Hon. Jerry Simpson for giving the broad pronunciation to a (for instance: Frawnce, Kawnsas), we would say that the Medicine Lodge swell was horn in Canada, and inherited his pronunciation. Growing Desperate. Fiom tha Tlutchinson (Dam ) Times. The Hutchinson Alliance Gazette, which was knocked out of the county printing of Reno county, through the political regeneration of W. K. Noland, is on its last legs, and calls frantically for 200 Pops to come to the rescue by putting up $5 apiece for five years subscription in advance. Hoke Smith Again. From the Xeirton Itepublican: Dr. Stearns, living on East Eighth street, was a surgeon in the regular army during the late war. Thirteen yeais ago he was stricken with paralysis and has been unable to w ork since that time. The government granted him a pension of 12 a month, which has assisted him in obtaining the necessaries of life. Someone maliciously reported to Washington that Dr. Stearns was able to do manual labor, and his pension was immediately cut down to $S per month. The injustice of the administration in taking this step without investigation is at once apparent. The Farmers Have Learned Wisdom. Trom the Gliaul Pres. The Farmers' Alliance meeting which was to have been held in Girard Jan. 19th did not materialize. Only one farmer is said to have come to town for the purpose of hearing the leaders talk, Tlieie was a time when the name of Alliance had a drawing force which no power could resist, but that time is past. Demagogues and political tricksters ruined the organization. As a recruiting station for tho People's party it was quite a success for awhile, but the farmers have learned wisdom since. A Non-Partisan Question. Annexation of Hawaii should not bo made a partisan question. It is essentially a national question, and should bn considered from a national point of view. It is not a question of whether the Republican or Democratic party will make or lose votes by advocating annexation, but whether for commercial or stiategic reasons, it is a desirable thing for the nation. When the question is presented for final settlement it should be discussed and settled on these lines. Manifestly, that can not bo during the present administration, and yet when the time doe3 come it ought to be considered free from partisan considerations. Revolutionary Science. The enthusiast in science is much given to the methods of the mighty hunter, who delights to suddenly disappear and be lost to human ken, wandering away to tho remotest corners of the earth and returning after many days with trophies of his prowess and Bkill. The scientist will "go on the still hunt" for months and years together, and then suddenly confront the world with some strange result of his delving in the by-paths of science that falsifies our most cherished beliefs and revolutionizes our most classic standards. Of such is Dr. Crochley Clapham, who seeks with a formidable array of statistics to sweep away all our generally-accepted ideas of the beauty and significance of the "intellectual brow." He maintains that the smaller vour head and the more prominent your occiput, the greater is your sanity at least the mad have, as a rule, good heavy frontal lobes. He shows by facts and figures based on the examination of human skulls four thousand of them that the heads of insane men have a larger average size than those of men of sound intellect. Si.

Pat Cahill and Bridget, his wife, were two well-known character less than a score of years ago in Lansing-burg. Both liked a "wee droD" at (times, and once in a great while Pat would come'home on Saturday night decidedly the worse for wear. This would scandalize Bridget, but her solicitude for her husband's habits apparently arose not so much from his condition of intoxication as that she was deprived from any'participation in the convivialit3 At last one day came a temperance orator, who made a great impression on the towns-people. The man was somewhat more liberal in his views than others who had preceded Jiim, and if he could not secure a pledge for total abstinence would compromise upon some other terms. Among those who went to hear the advocate one night was Pat and his wife. The former appeared much affected by the arguments, and finally pressed forward from his seat to sign the pledge. His wife trailed on behind. "Don't be afther making it too sthrong, Pat,' she whispered loud enough for every one to hear. "Don't tempt me. Biddy,"' he remarked as he advanced to the platform. "Write down there.' said he to the temperance man, "that Pat Cahill will not taste a drop of liquor' "Write down there, as I tell yon." f continued Pat, wavering a bit. "that Pat Cahill will not taste a drop of liquor except at a christenings a wed- j ding or a wake and when he meets ? j friend.1 Thev; terms were liberal enough to satisfy Biddy, and Pat, too, for that matter, but, strange to say, he ever afterward boasted of taking the pledge, bat it did not prevent bim having manv a glorious spree vithout ever viola tn. bis terms.sX. Y. Herald. J AN INTERESTING STUDY. Carton Facts Concerning Sheila of Lead and Ocean. Shell-life is probably the oldest form of animal life upon the globe. Its study is an interesting- one. and even people who are not of a scientific turn of mind find pleasure in looking on the exquisite coloring and delicate beauty of many varieties of shells and on their wonderful mechanism. There is nothing which more delights children than to wander along the seashore and gather tiie little shells which have been washed on the beach by the restless waves. And then, too, when ome large specimen is found, with Jrhat eagerness the finder, whether young or olu, will apply it to his or her ear and hear from within its murmur-ings, whereby, in the words of the poet, it expresses "mysterious union with its native sea."' In the Smithsonian institution, at Washington, there is a collection of fifty thousand shells, many of them of huge size, others strangely formed, and some of iridescent colors which rival the hues of sunset. In examining these, there came to mind many fables and traditions about shells. There is the conch shell, which was made into a horn and blown by old Triton and the attendants of Neptune. Then there is the nautilus, oi which Pope says: Learn of the little nautilus to sail. Spread the thin oa r and catch the driving gale. Many years ago, a Dutch naturalist went to the Indian seas to study shells. When he came back he told the story that the nautilus sailed in troops over the sea, and were able, when they wished, to fill themselves with water and sink to the bottom. This, it has been found, is not true. Tho nautilus commonly inhabits tho bottom of the sea, where it creeps about, by means of a large muscular disc with which the head is furnished, and it rarely rises to the surface, or is Been floating there. The interior of the shell is divided into chambers, connected by a little table, which affords air. The shell has most exquisite coloring, from pearly whit to varied motley. It is really the argonaut, or "paper sailer," which does what has been widely attributed to the nautilus. The Bhell of the argonaut is a tiny boat, set upon a keel of the most beautiful workmanship. Tiny arms stretch out from the sides and keep the boat from capsizing. There is a- siphon in the stern, through which the argonaut drives in water and pumps it out again. This sends the shell swiftly over the water. The animal, too, can separate itself from the boat and attach itself again as it pleases. The shells are thin and white as snow, nd seem as if a breath would crush them. And yet, although ther ai-e so very fragile, they are taken up by the ocean, carried hundreds miles and laid down upon theshore without injury. Tho snail family is well known, and Is often quoted as an illustration ot slowness. Shakespeare speaks of tho schoolboy "creeping like snail unwillingly to school." Snails, and most of the shell tribe, have feet and can walk with them, although their locomotion Is painfully slow. Certain varieties of snatis havo a very curious history. Some of them are eight and ten inches long; their colors are glorious, and thev can climb trees and come down again. The shells of some are dark brown, with zebra-like stripes, the tip of tho aperture being beautifully tinted with crimson. Others are creamy white, witk zebra stripes of different colors. The natives are said to use them for food, but they have never been relished by white men. The snails on the Philippine islands have shells of the most radiant colors. They are of wonderful beauty, and some have been found having the colors of watered sillr. They live in the bark of trees and never come down. All the snail tribe, with few exceptions, are egg layers; and in Brazil and other parts of South America, the eggs are sold in the markets for food. Enormous shells are found on a recf of the Indian ocean, twelve hundred miles long, and to the cast of Australia They grow to weigh hundreds of pounds, and they have been seen as large as a ship's longboat. Fishermen are afraid of them, and tell how they have bitten off arms and. legs. Scientists believe that the3' live a hundred years. There is another curious shell the abalone. It resemble? a huge saucer, and it stays the most, of the time on Rome rock. Inside, a strong muscle at- ! tached to one end of the shell serves I as a roof for it, and at the other end is a foot, provided with a powerful sue- j tion cup. j The abalone gets on top of a rock, which is covered part of the time by the flood. When it is hungry, it raises he edge of its shell, and the water , brings animalcukc, on which it makes i itsdiuner. I Along the coast of California abalone ' are taken for food by Chinamen. Tho large muscle is dried, and great quan- , tities are sent yearly to China. When a Chinaman goes out hunting ' for abalone and finds one. he may chance unthinkingl; to put his linger under the uplifted lid of the shclL The abalone is startled, and lowers the cov- j er. The powerful muscle contract. ' the foot has a suction power of tons on the rock, and nothing can dislodge it. ! The man is a prisoner, and when the i tide comes up, he perishes. J. II. Sin- j duir, in Golden Days i : CannibiU In the Gnlf et California. j Unlikely as it may seem to some who lead thee lines, it is a fact, nevertheless, that there is an island in the gulf of California, not more than sixty milea from the Mexican mainland, which i inhabited by the remnants of a race of giant cannibals. This startling dbcov-' ery was made by a west coast naturalist early in 1S01. and has since been confirmed by both. United States and Mexican explorers. Mr. McKaroara. j the scientist referred to, has a photo- , graph of one of the xntn fonnd by him on the island, that individual, although not one of the largest, being over ven feet in height- The island upon which , thry were found is-known as the Island i or Isle of Leri. and the original dicov- j erer says that there is everycvidence ! of cannibalism among them.
