Lot ua talk society and fashion for a change. Not any country town, Ameri can backwoods style either, but way high up English style, such as we have here at Washington, don't you know. Why am I so frivolous ss to seek to tarn away your thoughts from immortal themes in this solemn Lenten season? I suppose itsbecauee solemnity and Lent failed to connect at the capital this year. How could we be pioua with all this regiment of sinful lobbyists badgering congress in the interest of tha sugar trust, the whiskey trust, the coal com bine and all the wicked rest of it right before our face and eyes? How could our congressmen keep track of holy days with all those "sugar stocks" and t...

"My dear sir, were we to treat the poor sympathetic ally, or even civilly, we would be over run thev'd swamp the treasury. We've got to have a man for poor commis sioner that will talk rough to these paupers. Taxes are high enough as it is." Such is the logic of the average county commissioner. It was not Lena Graham's logic. After a whispered con sultation with her aunt, and having obtained more specific information as to the family's residence, she immedi ately left the meeting, and, utterly re gardless of the beneficent teachings of political economy and the oracular wis dom of county officialdom, went her unscientific way to "pauperize" these suffering pe...

One gcod feature of the dirty cam p aign dow on in Kansas City, Mis souri, is that it keeps the papers of that town from lying so much about Kanea3 and the Populists in general. Coxex's "peace" army was not very large when it started from Massillon, but it has plenty of space in which to grow. "Gentlemen may cry peace, peace, but there is no peace."

They will be placed on the battleships Indiana, Iowa, Massachu setts and Oregon. You people out west may get to see wood outa of these battle ships on the patent inside of some of your newspapers. That will be your share in the national glory of our navy. But, as I started to say, these big guns we are making are a great comfort to society. Whenever the "unworthy poor" circles and seethes into a mob, one of these big guns can mow down acres at a shot. Our glorious spring weather has brought society out on wheels, and such wheels, yellow, red, all colors of the rain bow. What a dashing, dizzy spectacle you westerners may see of a Thursday afternoon if you will come here and go to the "White Lot" down by the monu ment. The elegance is stunningly Eng lish; tandem teams, short-tailed horses, superb carriages and brilliant attire. If Brother Cjxey...

The Capital "was driven into its hols in the argument that overpro duction is the cause of the low price of wheat, and now has only the cour age to reproduce the stale sayings of others who hold to the same erro eous ideas. Iq its issue of March 21 it reproduces an article from "Clark's Horse Beview," seeking to confirm the overproduction theory, notwithstand ing every proposition therein laid down has been met and exploded, and the fact made clear that there can be no overproduction so long as the wants of the people are satisfied.

7 A MODEL RE? CU-ICAN TEACHES. When one reads republican pa pers, takes note of the kind of stuff f onnd in their columns, and remem bers that only a fractional part of the republican voters read anything else, he cannot wonder at the lack of intel ligence manifested in the exercise of the franchise. We have an example of the information imparted to repub lican readers now before na in the Abilene Dispatch of March 22. The subject of the learned disquisition is the Bland seigniorage bill; and the information which it fails to impart concerning that measure will strike the intelligent reader as very volumi nous. The writer says: j The bill ia intended to take the place of what ia known aa the Sherman law. The Sherman act of 1890 was an amendment to the Bland-Allison bill, provided for the pur chase of $2,000,000 worth of BiWar bullion per month, and that silver certificates to equal that sum should be used for circula tion. This is certainly a very compre hensive statement of the fea...

9 CONCERNING KANSAS. NOTES. H. Mehl, of Leavenworth, and C. Lawrence, of Wichita, were appointed members of the state board of phar macy. Topeka is to entertain the Kansas Republican league April 5. That will be a gala day for Hoch'a political friends. Allen Sells, one of the orignal Sells brothers of circus fame, died in Topeka last week. He was proprietor of the Chesterfield hotel. In Enterprise the women have nomi nated a city ticket composed of candi dates of their own sex, and they are making a red hot campaign without a platform. Some boys found what they thinkjis a robbers cave near Winfield. That is probably where Ed Greer used to make and store his dynamite, while he was earning a nomination for congress. Walter N. Allen, who was selected by the governor several weeks ego to suc ceed H. B..Kelley on the State board of charities, will take charge of the office April 1. At the same time H. M.

THE! ADVOCATE. 11 An Open Letter to Mr. Hoch. Dxak Sir: I read with a great deal of interest your letter in regard to ac cepting the Domination for governor on the republican ticket. I told a friend, here ia a nice, good, young republican who has become disgusted with tha ways of the republican party. Among other good things you say: "I am tired of seeing this great office kicked like a football over the prairies of Kansas. I am disgusted with the dispensing of its perquisites in ad vance and as a means of their attain ment. From all these things our party has sufiered sorely in the past." Now, Brother Hoch, these and worse doings are just what has driven thou sands of us from the republican party, and if you think seriously on that sub ject, you will conclude that you will do more good by helping a new party along (for God knows it is hard enough to keep even a new party pure) than by under taking the impossible task of purifying an old seething, festering mass of cor ruption like ...

The resolution as introduced by Repreaentatiye McGann had a number of preambles; these were left off and the committee on judiciary reported as a substitute the order for an Investigation. The vote for an investi gation was almost unanimous and those who voted against the resolution should be heralded throughout the district from which they are chosen, branded in the future as enemies of workingmen and not willing to grant the laborers any right, but over zealous in currying favor with the monopolies.

The circumstances of the arrest were brought out. The chief had to tell of his visit to the young woman's room, ostensibly to get her baby; he had to tell how poorly furnished was the room; and he had to confess that, seeing a trunk there, he had broken it open and found the letters, and that it was for that single purpose he had gone to her room. He said the baby seemed to be asleep, and as they didn't want to be bothered with it at the jail he had stopped and told an old colored woman to look after it. He hadn't made any inquiries about it since, but he guessed the old colored woman had taken care of it.
