Topeka Kb As the time for the Populist state convention draws near there is naturally a more noticeable interest taken in the available Candidates for the various state offices. The strong points of each are thoroughly canvassed and the people are getting ready to render their decision at the convention. Of the men who have been mentioned for the office of Auditor none seems to be as popular as our own ^fajor Boyd, not that they are not all competent, but there are peculiar reasons which seem to render him the strongest candidate. From all over the state come letters of encouragement and editorial comment indicative of the esteem in which Major Boyd is held by the people. The following from the Colby Free Press, is a fair sample of editorial mention which he is receiving, all of which indicates that he is held in high esteem by the people : “Major Boyd, of Belleville, was in the city last Thursday getting acquainted. The Major is a candidate for State Auditor before the state convention of the People’s Party at Ft. Scott this month. He once lived at Logan, in Phillips county, and for a dozen years edited the only greenback paper in this district. It has been a rule of our life when we find a man who has strength of character sufficient to break party ties and stand alone if need be for the right’s sake to have no hesitancy in tying to him If there is a man whose political honesty we believe in, it is the old line greenbacker, and Major Boyd being one of this stripe we are hcpeful that the tide may set in his way and he may land the nomination at Ft. Scott.’ This seems to be the sentiment of all in the Sixth district and the Fifth is ( also practically solid, for the home man. Besides fhese he has hundreds of earnest, hard-working supporters in all the other districts of the state, who will see that he receives his deserts at the state convention. Major Boyd, while he has been in politics for years, was never known to advocate a questionable measure or to espouse the cause of a dangerous man. He has never been known to go back on a friend and the opposition has always found him uncompromising though consistent. His bitterest political enemies respect him for his open and fearless methods, for he has always believed that if a thing was wrong it should be exposed rather than covered up. Major Boyd is in no sense an office seeker, having for many years spent time and money without recompense and with no other hope than that the right might prevail. Now he is becoming old, and though still vigorous and enthusiastic as ever, it is no more than right to recognize the value of the service he has rendered the party by giving him the nomination for Auditor of State. The Oourtland Register last week contained a statement that Kansas has gained $100,000,000 in wealth in the past three years and on the same page occurs a quotation from Eugene Ware to the effect that Kansas has lost by populism $200,000,000. This is about as consistent as a republican usually is. About 7000 more soldiers are to be sent to ihe Philippines to help christianize those poor heathen. It is announced that Ex. Gov. Lew-elling has “gone back on the pops.” As a matter of fact, the pops went back on him some years ago and that is what ails him. He has joined the socialists and will try to down John Brei-denthal. Webster Davis, assistant secretary of the Interior, who resigned his place some weeks ago to tell the American people the real condition of affairs in South Africa, has cut loose from the republican party and declared himself for Bryan and the democratic plat form. * McHanna imperialism was too much for him. It is claimed by a republican exchange that Harrison Kelly has again changed his politics and is working for for the republican ticket. As Mr. Kelly has been dead for some four or five years there is little danger that the voters he wins for republicanism will be able to cast their ballots this year. The Cosmopolitan for June is an unusually interesting number. Besides an excellent letter descriptive of the Paris Exposition and articles on other subjects of interest, the editor takes occasion to give some plain facts about trusts and the ultimate solution of the trust problem, which he correctly states will be governmental control.

LUDWIG , M$r. As might have been expected, the reading of the Declaration of Independence was omitted at most of the fourth of July celebrations this year. The republicans consider it obsolete and besides it might arouse unpleasant thoughts and provoke comparisons that would be odious. Of cqurse a fourth of July celebration without the Declaration of Independence is something like playing Hamlet with Hamlet left out, but it still appears to be popular with the people to celebrate the occasion and Kiifg Marcus hardly dares to forbid it just yet. The cotton manufacturing industry in the United States is treated of in two articles in the July Review of Reviews, Mrs. Lenora Beck Ellis tells of the rapid progress that the South has made in the establishment of “Cotton Mills in Cotton-Fields.” Miss Jane A. Stewart, on the other hand, explains the steps taken by New England cotton manufacturers to protect themselves against this new competition in the South.

It cpntains pictures of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but it would have been more appropriate to have put in the pig face of Mark Hanna and the vulture beak of old Tom Platt. It demands with all the earnestness of an enthusiast that i “Free Institutions and the Christian Religion must follow the Flag,” advocates a merchant marine and contains other evidences of being a reflection of .-he republican platform.

Yo can get anything you want in the FURNITURE line in any quantity and in quality to suit your taste. The following is the New Y’ork Journal’s explanation of the multitude of strikes: Most of the current strikes are due to the increased cost of living. Nominally for higher wages, they are really strikes against wage reductions. The general rise of prices has so cut down the purchasing power of money that the real wages of most workmen are lower now than they were in the midst of the hard times of three years ago, even when they are 10 or 20 per cent, higher measured in dollars and cents. The only benefit most workers have received from prosperity thus far has been increased steadiness of employment. There has been no improve ment in earnings for those at work, but rather the reverse. tain,” etc., and we imagine that when the last copy was franked through Uncle Sam’s post office at New York Mark Hanna walled up his eyes, folded his hands across his capacious maw and said, “Let us prey.” J.

And if by chance he should get turned around it might puzzle him a little to tell which is which, without looking at the label. Without exchanging any more words with the Scandia Journal we challenge its editor to prove just one instance where any silver advocate of even ordinary note during the last presidential campaign demanded that the value of the dollar cut in two. Will the* howlers about republican prosperity dare to assist that McKinley cut short the wheat crop of the Da kotas, Minnesota and Maintoba, in order to capture the vote of Kansas farm ers? We hardly think they have that much hardihood, and yet that is just what by inference we are expected to btlieve when they .fpefd|i$bc$t the Eugene W are, who made himself popular with the people of Kansas by his “Rhymes of Ironquill.” has turned calamity howler and in imitation of that very cheap young man Willie White, has taken to traducing Kansas. More than that he has no regard for the truth in the statements he makes. He says that populist rule in Kansas hate been a “rule of riot, socialism, anarchy and robbery.” To begin with, there is mot a state in the union the size of Kansas that has not under other than populist rule had more riots tha« Kansas has. Then when he states thAt socialism and anarchy are in the ascendancy he shows that his mind is failing or he takes the people for a set of imbeciles. There is as much difference between socialism and anarchy as there is between day and night and it would be as impossible for both these conditions to obtain as it w T ould be for such a bitter partism as Gene Ware, to tell the truth. As to robbery, it has -mostly been done by corporations witfl the connivance of such shysters as My. Ware, for whenever the populists have made a law in tlje interests of the peo* pie every corporation lawyer/ in this state and Missouri has been employed to help render it ineffective. It is to be hoped that the people of Kansas will make Mr. Ware decidedly moi* tired” than whôn he wrote “Hei Kansas.” Mr. Ware among ot things recommends the repeal of alien laws, the prohibitory law and confiscatory laws, and thinks la should be passed to encourage capi In order to make the case sponger tens to go back to Conn6â$iÉtt is not done " '“1sr If you believe in special favors to the trusts, vote the republican ticket.
