General News of Railroads and Railroad Employes. Superintendent ,T. S. May of the Richmond division, was at Pittsburg the past week and while there gave out the following Interview to the Pispatch: "Thirty days ago the West was wild for Bryan, but 30 days have brought.n wonderful change in conditions. Bryan has talked too much. Every time he makes a speech he makes converts for McKlnley. The people were carried away by sudden burst of enthusiasm, and are now sobering, aud thinking about the situation. "I want to suy that McKinley will swoop every State East of the Mississippi river. A gold Democratic ticket will only make the prospects brighter. It will have the tendency of bringing out to t.lie polls those Democrats who wn.nl lo be for sound money, but still wiiut to remain D'emocrats. West of the Mississippi river Bryan will carry a few States but McKlnloy will get enough to insure his election. The sentiment of the west Is rapidly changing. "The employes of the Pennsylvania lines on all divisions will vote solidly for McKinloy, Democrats as well as Republicans. Railroad sound money clubs are being formed everywhere along the Hue. At Richmond we have n strong sound money club of between 200 and 300 mombei'.s ami ihe President is ,T. K. Elder, who was postmaster at Richmond under Cleveland's first administration. Half oC the members are Democrats. * * * * '"The thought of Bryan being elected has stagnated .business. Since the silver fever has died out business Is Improving and money is being spent more freely. Wo find railroad travel and freight increasing, but no railroad construction Is going on. We don't Intend to build any more road until after the election. Then I expect to see business increase with a rush, for I am sanguine McKlnley will bo President." KANSA5 V AN OBJECT LESSON.

The wreck at Crown Point, Wednesday, was caused by the engine running Into an open switch. The switch.had been thrown but a small stone pot in between the rails and prevented them from closing tightly. When the engine came along the flange on the wheel forced the switch open and thus the wreck was caused. The directors of the R. R. Y. M. C. A. held .1 meeting Wednesday evening to consider the advisability of replacing the bath tubs now in use, with threo new porcelain tubs. It was decided to get the new tubs If the membership conic! be increased enough to .pay for them.

Johnston. Einporla Gazette: Today the Kansas Department of Agriculture sent out a statement which indicates that Kansas has gained less than. 2,000 people In the last year. There are about 125,000 families in the State, and there were about 10,000 babies born in Kansas, mud yet so many people have left the State that the natiirnl increase is cut down to less than 2,000 net. This has been going on for eight years. If there bud been a high brick wall around the State eight years ago and not «. soul had been admitted or permitted to leave, Kansas would be half a million souls bettor off tliaii sha is today. And yet the nation has Increased in population. In five years 10,000,000 have been added to the na- tiouiil population—yet instead of gain- lug n share of this—say 500.000—Kansas has apparently been a plague spot, and In the very garden of tho world has lost population by the ten thousands every year. Not only IMS slie lost population, but she has lost wealth. Every moneyed nmn in thu State _who could set out without great loss lias gone. Every month In every community sees some one who has a little money pick up aud leave the State. This hns been going on for eight years. 'Money IK being drained out nil 1lie tinip. lu towns where ton years ago there were three or four or Italf a dozen money-londing concerns stinuil.-iting industry by furnishing capital there Is now none or one or two looking after, the interest or principal already outstanding. No ono brings :iny money iuui Kansas ;iuy more. What community knows over one or two men who have moved in with more than $5,000 in the last three years? And what community cannot count hnlf a score of men in that time who have left, taking all the money they.could scrape together? Yet the uation has grown rich. Other States have increased In population and wealth—other neighboring States, Missouri has gaaned nearly 2,000,000 while Kansas has been losing 500,000. Nebraska hns gained in wealth aud population while Kansas h.is gone down hill. Colorado 'has gained In every way, while Kansas has lost in every wily since 1S8S. What is the matter with Kansas?' There Is no substantial city In tho State. Every big town save one 1ms lost in population. Yet Kansas City, Omaha, Lincoln. Sr. Louis, Denver, Colorado Springs, Sedalia, Des Moinen the cities of the Dnkotas, St..Paul an<3 Minneapolis—all cities and towns in the west have steadily grown. Take up the government blue book and you will see that Kansas is virtually off the ina,p. .Two or three little scabby consular places lu yellow- fever stricken coinmuuities.that do not aggregate $10,000 a year is all the recognition Kansas has. Nebraska draws about $100,000; little old North Dakota, draws $50,000; Oklahoma doubles Kansas; Missouri' leaves her a thousand miles behind; Colorado is almost seven times greater than Kansas—the whole west is ahead of Kansas. , TaJce It. by any standard you please, Kansas is not in it. Go cast, and you hear them laugh at Kansas; go west and they sneer at her; go south, and tliey "cuss" her; go north and they have forgotten her. Go Into any crowd of .Intelligent people gathered anywhere on.tho globe, and-'you will find tho Kansas man on the defensive. The newspaper columns and magazine pages, once devoted to praise of the State, to boastful facts and- startling figures concerning her resources, now are filled with cartoons, gibes and Pcfforlan speeches. Kansas just naturally Isu'.t In the civilized world. She has trncled places with Ar- kansa.w and Timbuctoo. • What's the'matter with Kansas? We all know yet here we are at it again. We have an old mossback Jack- sou Ian who snorts and howls because there is a bath tub in the Stateuouse; we are running that old jag for Governor. We have another shabby, wild- eyed, rattle-brained fanatic who has sold openly In a dozen speeches that "the rights of the user are paramount to the rights of the owner," we are running him for chief justice, so that, capital will come tumbling over itself to get into the State. We. have raked the ash heap of human failure in the State and have found an old hoopsklrt of a man who has failed as a business man, who has failed as an editor, who has failed as a preacher, and we .are going- to run him for Congressman nt large. He will help the looks of the Kansas delegation in Washington. Then we have discovered a kid without a law practice nnd have decided to vote for him as Attorney-General. Then for fear some hint that the State hnil become respectable mignt percolate through the civilized nor.tloiis of the nation we .have decided to send three or four harpies out lecturing tell- We have no old shelf worn goods, but ever yihing new and to date.

Oh, this is a State to be proud of! We are a people who con hold up our heads. What we need hero Is less money, less capital, fewer white shirts and brains, fewer men with business j tion. judgment and more of these fellows who boast that they are "just ordinary old clodhoppers, but that they kuow more in a minute about finance sJiM John Sherman." We need more men who are "posted" who can bellow about tho crime of '73. who hate prosperity, and who think that because a man believes lu national honor that he Is a tool of Wall street. We have had a few of them, some 100,000, but we want more. We ueed several thousand gibbering idiots to scream about the ''Great Red Dragon" of -Lombard street. We don't need population, we don't heed wealth, we don't ueed well- dressed men on the streets, we don't need cities on these fertile prairies you bet we don't. What we are after I the money power. BeentJse we hav become poorer and ornrier and meane than a spavined, distempered mule, w the people of Kansas, propose to kick We don't care to build up, we wish t'< tear down. "There are two ideas of government,' said out- noble Bryan, at Chicago "There are those who believe that I you just legislate to make the well-to do prosperous their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Demo .cratic idea has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous .their prosperity will find its way up and through every class aud rest upou us." ' • -: That's the stuff. Give the prosper- .ous man the dickens. Legislate the thriftless into ease; whack the stuffing out of the creditors, nnd tell the debtor who borrowed money five years ago when the money In circulation was more 'general than it Is now, that the contraction of the currency gives him a right to repudiate. Whoop It up for the ragged trousers; put the lazy, greasy fizzte who can't pay his debts on -an altar ,and bow down and worship Win. Let the State fdeal be'high. What we need Is not the respect of our fellow-meu, but a chance to get something for nothing. Oh, yes, Kansas is -a great State. Here are people fleeing from It by'.the score every day, capital going out of the State by the hundreds of dollars, and every industry except farming paralyzed, . and that crippled because Its products have to'go across the ocean before they: can afford to buy them. Let's don't stop this year. .Let's drive all the decent, self-respecting men out of the State. Let's keep the old clodhoppers who know it nil. Lot's eu- courage the man who Is "posted". He can talk, and what we need Is not mill hands, to eat our' meat, nor factory hands to eat our wheat, nor cities to oppress the farmer'by consuming his butter aud eggs and chickens and prqr dace; what Ifaosas needs Is men wfio cin talk, who have .large leisure to argue the currency question while their wives Aval t-at home-for that nickel's worth of. bluing. " What's the matter with Kansas? Nothing under the shining sun. She is losing wealth, population and stand- lug. She has got her statesmen and the money power is afraid of her.' Kansas is all right. She has started in to raise hell, as Mrs.-.Lease advised, and she seems to have'a.n overproduc- Eut that doesn't matter. 'Kan- |Drawings of AH Kinds Made by BYRON B.
