ENDED IN SAD TRAGEDY
Trial    Mtffjii    J*^ | 	
Unprincipled    Villain���Judge
Scores Defendant
A sordid romance, not without Its
pathetic side, was unravelled before
Judge Harrison last Saturday, says
Iho Naualmo Free ProsB, when P. P.
Wiley was up charged with stabbing
Ike Storey. Its the old, old story of
making a wrong start to solve one of
lire's greatest problems.
Some years ago Wiley Induced the
young prelty woman, 19 years of age,
who now peases as his wife, to live
with him. The relationship was con-
Unueil for five years. One child is tlie
result of the union. Wiley haa apparently treated the woman well and considers that by an unwritten law of
Washington state, where he has resided with her, that she Is legally bis
wife.
Some time ago he begged her to
marry him and go away to some new
locality and start life all over again.
Tho woman relused, however, and left
him, transferring her afrectlons to
Storer, who was a frequenter at their
home, and was Invariably received
with open hospitality. The loregoing
is briefly what led up to the stabbing
allray.
After hearing the pitiable story
Judge Harrison, while recognizing
Wiley's unenviable attitude in the
woman's history, gave Storey one of
the severest "calling downs'* ever
heard ln a Nanaimo court room, referring to his actions as contemptible, and
he as a traitorous, dirty false friend.
As far as was known, Wiley and the
woman were living ns man and wife
and apparently respectable when Storey came on the scene and broke up
the home to get the woman for himseir.
His lordship considered thc charge
as one to get Wiley away so that he
could tako the woman. He only re
gretted thut he could not punish Storey, who had gotten ofr so easily, and
warned hlm that he would recelvo tho
heaviest penalty ol tbe law it he ever
appeared belore him and was found
guilty of anything.
The Judge nlso snld the womau had
behaved shamefully, turning against
the father of her child for a contemptible wretch.
Ills honor let Wiley out on suspended sentence under bunds of (200, which
was quickly forthcoming.

Foundations Laid Deep in
National Policy
ENGLISH-CANADIAN VIEW
London Standard Educating United
Kingdom ir Elements oi Dominion's Progress.
London, Dec 27.���The Dally Standard publishes u long article on Canada In which, as it says, It desires to
Inform its readers in the United Kingdom of the political and other conditions In the Dominion which hold out
Inducements to the proper persons iu
the United Kingdom io take a much
more genera] interest in the future of
the riling nation.
Au ex-Canadian, who is now a member or thu English bar, Ml. Wm. Mc-
Master, is authority for Uie salient
facta set forth lu this article:
lu auswer to our questions," says
the Standard, Mr. Macmaster declured
tuat thu prosperity of Canada today is
due to the great nutural reBourcts and
the opportunities for their development
aiforded by the wise and statesmanlike
policy iutroduced uud 1 irmly established by the late Sir John Macdonald aud
his colleagues.
Confederation was only the first step
in tne creation of the Dominion. The
Great Lone Land was still "withoul
the Kates," and so were Prince Kdward Island and Hritish Columbia.
Tbe two latter came lu the early
seventies, and the former (Ruperts
Land and the Northwest Territory),
with some important reservations, was
purchased from the Hudson's Bay
Company for $l,500,tKJi). Sir John Macdonald uml his colleagues were confronted with the gigantic task ot
welding together and developing this
veritable1 continent or territory separated by vast distances, and eacn
part, as far as settled, bred under its
own tariff laws. The first necessity
was to establish a uniform tariff for
the whole Dominion, so adjusted as to
give moderate protection to the nus
cent industries of the country, and the
second necessity was the construction
of a transcontinental railway connecting the Atlantic with the Pnctiic
ocean, and traversing each province
en route. This twofold policy���fiscal
and railway���both looking to the development of the agricultural, manufacturing, mining and transportation
interests of Canada was, uud is,
known as the National Policy. Adopted by the .Canadian people, it put the
affairs of the counlry~on a business
basis, and became a great asset. It
has been crowned with marked success. Before the adoption of the National Policy the United States waB
draining Canada of its best blood, and
stagnation in business prevailed on
every hand.
Manufacturer! had virtually collapsed, crushed by the overflow of slaughtered goods from the American factories. Groat numbers of people had left
the country heartbroken, seeking work
in American factories, on American
railways, in American mines, generally
as hewers of wood and drawers of wa-
te;. The National Policy gave employment lo both capital aud labor in Canada. Under its away industries flourished In thc old provinces, tlie fertile
plains of the western prairie were
opened to settlement, aud the mines ol
British Columbia to development���all
to a degree not dreamed of u generation before. Denounced at its inception in 1879, and for years afterwards
derided and condemned by Sir John
Macdonald's political opponents as legalized robbery, this policy has been
maintained by them substantially intact since they came into power. They
have become the unnatural beneficiaries of the foresight aud patriotism ot
the man they denounced in life. No
greater tribute could bo paid to a
statesman's memory.
The railway policy has heen a com
plete success, though at the time it
was proposed It was declared by its
opponents that ' tlie line would not
pay for the grease for its wheels." The
Canadian Pacific railway common
sliaros now stand at 200 in the markets of tho world. The Canadian Pa
clflc is the great pioneer transcontinental railway of Canada. It was built
under the National Policy, and, wisely
administered by strong and determined
men like Lord Mount Stephen, Lord
Strathcona, Sir William Van Home,
and, more recently, Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, lt has done more than
any half dozen agencies to open up
and promote settlement nnd development In Canada. Without It we should
not have a Grand Trunk Pacific (now
under construction),   or    that    other
marvellous pioduction of Canadian energy, the Canadian Northern (Mackenzie Mann system), now connecting the
Great Lakes and Winnipeg with Edmonton, and racing westward through
the Hockierf ,u the Pacific, and eastward  to the  Atlantic seaboards.
The contrail for the construction of
the Grand Trunk Pacific is a weak and
costly attempt at Imitation of the Mac-
donald-Tupper policy. It Is a good
bargain fur tne Grand Trunk, and an
expensive and Improvident one for
Canada. But it ts now the law of the
land, and the best should he made of
even a bad bargain. The Grand Trunk
railway Inter, sis, at all events, have
been well looked after by Mr. Hays
and his lieutenants, aud very properly
so. The old Trunk and the new have
an Important future before them. I
mention the railways especially, as
they have contributed, are contributing
and will contribute more to the progress and settlement of Canada in tlie
near future than any other corporate
or government influence.
And what do you say of Canada's
relations with the  United  States?
Our relations at present are of the
most satisfactory character. It Is true
that there are a few Important outstandings to be settled, but, with good
will on both sides, these are capable
of businesslike adjustment. There
have been Jj-Mnders in the past-
blunders not all attributable to the
imperial government-���but we cannot
correct the mistakes of tlte past:
they remain ty-icons for guidance In
the future,

VEILED INDIFFERENCE
England's  Incapacity  aa    an    Empire
Will Drive Canada to Merge With
United Statea
London, Dec. 27���"Tariff Reform"
writes to the Times regarding the danger of riclproclt) between Canada and
the United States as the result of
llrlllsh Indifference.
The Times, editorially, asks: "Can
we afford to let economic theories,
true or false, stand In the way of
measures which would safeguard the
empire against the danger of absorption of Canada into the United States?
If the government's attitude at the
approaching colonial conference Is
merely one of pnllte reserve and profuse hospitality, veiling the real indifference, then Canada, the sister to the
States, will inevitably come to the conclusion that England Is Incapable as
an empire, political or economic, and
will turn her attention elsewhere."
The opinion is growing stronger in
official diplomatic ulrcles here, that
Mr. Bryce will be named head of tho
llrltlsh delegation to thc next Hague
peace conference. It Is expected that
Franco will Join In this movement.
Reports have heen in circulation recently in certain capitals of Europo
to the effect that Great Hritain was
op|>osed to the American plan of submitting the Drago doctrine to The
Hni.;ue tribunal, but the* official exchanges going on here, have not disclosed the slightest opi��sUlon on tho
part of Great Britain to this stop. Mr.
Bryce's presence ln Washington Ib expected to contribute to an arrangement whereby Greal Britain and the
I'nited Statea may act along parallel
Unci.

COLD BLOODED MURDER
Helpless Occupants of Way Station
Brutally Attacked, Slaughtered,
and Building Burned.
El Paso, Tex., Dec. 27.���A special
from Nogales, Mexico, today says:
Details are arriving here of the massacre of a party of Mexicans by Yaqul
Indians near Valencia, 60 miles below
Guyamas. Eleven Mexicans and one
American were killed. From all accounts there were over 100 Indians in
the attacking party.
���____ _-
Los Angeles, Dec. 27.���Colonel H. B.
MaxBon, vice president of the National
Irrigation congress and secretary of
the board of education of Reno, Nev.,
who has been spending the past few
weeks in the state of Sonora, Mexico,
arrived here yesterday with a graphic
story of a massacre of Mexicans and
Americans which occurred at the little
town of Lancho, on the Canayeal Yaqu,
river and Paclf" railroad last Saturday afternoon. ..ccordlng to the statement of Maxson, his train stopped an
hour at Lancho. While there, rumors
were received that the Yaquls were at.
thu wurpath, and the few people in the
neighborhood of the station and railroad were in danger.
The station-master, a man named
Thompson, belittled the matter and
said that he and his wife would remain
at their post. The train bearing Colonel Maxson and party had not left the
station more than an hour when the
Yaquls descended on the little party
of Mexicans and Americans and murdered four of them. Thompson and his
wife had defended themselves back of
the barricaded doors of the station until a work train appeared, when the
Indians withdrew.
The train bearing Maxson and his
party continued to a station about 15
miles further along the line and then,
as the signs of the uprising became
more alarming, the party decided to return. The train started back towards
Lanchon and when It arrived there Ihe
station house had been burned and demolished and four human bodies lay
alongside the track. The party stopped a tew minutes In the hope that the
sur.Ivors might be found and taken to
a plaee of safety. While the train was
at. the ruins of the station, the desperadoes apn.ared in the distance but did
not .ore within range of the few armed p oplJ on the train.
Not many miles along the road the
scene was duplicated. Four more dead
bodies of Mexicans and Americans
were found along the tracks, the little
band at the station having been able
to repulse the attack of the Yaquls
with the loss of but four of their number. The remaining members of the
company refused to leave on the train
but said they could Stand off the Indians until the next day, when the
rural corps would reach thii spot and
summary justice would be meted out
to (hem.
Fisheries Abandoned.
St. Johns, N. F., Dec. 27.���Because

New Orleans, Dec. 27.���That white
men protected Innocent negroes and
that every effort Is being made by
whites to punish thorn; white men who
are responsible for the Chiistmas riots
ln Kemper county, Miss., was the information In a detailed account arriving here today.
A conference haB been held, these
despatches Bay. between the civil and
military authorities, at which evidence
was produced that will establish the
identity of five white men of good
families of the county who took part
in the attack on tbe negroes. District
Attorney Currle has made a public
statement In which he says:
"I find that the trouble was caused
by a lot of outlaws wbo openly violated all the laws of Goo, man and decency. Four were killed on Christmas
day who were not connected with the
affair in any manner. The men connected with tbe outrages will be captured if it Is in the power of the state
of Mississippi to do so."

death list Is probably 12 and the mob
element among the whites has fled toward the Btate line, while negroes

VltLUTCAUSEO ARREST
Sensational   Accusation   Made  Against
Respectable Lady by High Flier
In New York City.
New York. Dec. 27.���With ths arraignment in the appeal court today
ot Mrs. Alexander Trautman, the wife
of a prominent physician, on a charge
of larceny, came the final act of what
is believed to be one of the most deplorable cases of mistaken Identity in
police history. Mrs. Trautman was arrested on Fifth avenue on Christmas
evening on complaint of K. Hogan, a
salesman, who accused her of having
robbed him of .13 a few evenings before. Hogan said the woman had accosted him on the street and had invited him into a dark hallway, and
that when he left be learned thai the
money which had been in his pocket
was missing. Mrs. Trautman protested her innocence, but the policeman
whom Hogan had called to arrest her
took her to the station bouse. The
arrest of the fashionably-dressed woman on the crowded thoroughfare attracted a great crowd, which followed
the officer and his prisoner. At the
station house Mrs. Trautman again
protested that she was a victim of a
terrible mistake, and gave the sergeant
in charge the name ot her husband
and several friends, who she Bald
would substantiate her story. None of
those could be reached Immediately by
telephone, however, and Mrs. Trautman was taken to a gaol, where she
was forced to spend several hours ln
the company of half a dozen dissolute
women, who had been arrested on
various charges.
At that time friends of Mrs. Trautman had been notified of her predicament and hurried to the station house
to procure her release. They protested against the arrest as outrageous,
but they were Informed that it would
be necessary for them to furnish ball
before she would be given her liberty.
Ball to the. amount of J1000 was furnished and Mrs. Trautman was taken
to her hqpie.
When ^he appeared ln police court
on Christmas morning Hogan, the accuser, was there to press the charge.
He said he was certain that he could
not have been mistaken. He declared
he had followed Mrs. Trautman for
for several blocks, observing her closely, and was satisfied before he caused
her arrest that she was the woman
who Invited him Into the dark hallway.
On the strength of thiB testimony the
magistrate waB obliged to hold tho
prisoner for  further examination.
The case has caitBed very wide attention not only on account of the high
standing of the Trautmans In this
city and the South, when Mrs. Trautman came, but Isoenuse of a realization of tho danger to which any Innocent woman may be subjected. It has
been shown that under the present
conditions In the city, no woman, whatever h"r standing and character may
be, Is safe from positive arrest similar
to that which Mrs. Trautman has been
expoBed.

Ottawa, Dec. 27.���Mclnnes bas been
offered a safe seat by Liberal Leader
Macdonald. He will probably resign
and run for the British Columbia
bouse. He arrives in Ottawa from
New York tomorrow.
Victoria, B. C, Dec. 27.���The rumor
ls afloat here this afternoon that Mclnnes has stipulated as the price of
his coming to the rescue of the British
Columbia Liberals that J. A. Macdonald make public resignation of his position as Liberal  leader.
The Colonist charges that there la
only one explanation for the Mclnnes
intrusion, and it is tbat the Ottawa
government is going to use ever}
means in Its power, both in patronage
and money to influence aad defeat tbe
McBride administration. This view ol
the sm I. strengthened by the report,
which was sent from Ottawa lo the
News-Advertiser, to the effect that
the whole British Columbia delegation
la about to come west to engage ln
the campaign on behalf of the opposition.
Mr. Mclnnes' entry into the fight
also Implies that some arrangement
satisfactory to him has been arrived
at as to what shall happen ln the
event of the defeat of this plan. There
can be no doubt, however, that ln the
coming campaign the provincial government will have to contend with all
the agencies which the Dominion can
command.
Such an Interference In the affairs
of the province will be met with the
most determined opposition.

MK. QUEEN'S KET1KEMENT.
The n&fguaikm of  Mr.  K.  E. Green
fiom the  provincial    government    aud
his  voluntary   retirement   lo   the   rank
or a private citizen make lining some
extended reference   tu    tbe    business
ability aud singleness of purpose with
which he discharged  his duly ua chief
commissioner of lands and  works dining  his tenure  of office.    There have
been numerous aud important  changes
In  the management at ihe department
since it fell under Mr. Qro&'s care, and
tiiese have heen such as to material^
advance the prosperity of the couuuy
as a whole, aud some of its industries
iu particular.    Tin law by which EQ081
oi our timber   is manufactured   Into
lumber within the province is io he a
credited to Mi. Green's Initiative, and
as a result the revenues have  been m-
cieastd. and whai is equally important,
the Investment of capita] withiu Brit-
lab Columbia, the employment of labor
and a consequent increase Id tlu* cum
nierce   of the   country   have   followed.
The changes in the legislation govern*
ing ihe holding of timber (censes are
a.so to be placed to Mr. Greeu's credit
aud   while  the  resources of the  country   have   been   conserved   tbe  geueral
commerce in timber licenses bas beeu
placed upon a much more satisfactory
and   businesslike   basis  than formei.y,
.Licensees now have a legal status aud
their rights are guaranteed by the law,
so  tiial   a   transfer of license  may   be
secured  on   compliance    with    certain
well-guarded  conditions.      Thus, while
titer, has heen added Impetus given to
tlii* development of timber resources,
the revenues are further protected by
such provisional clauses as place the
3.cense fees absolutely under the control of the provincial legislature. The
Inducement for invested capital has
Thus been magnified and uot without
already favorable results.
More than this, the department of
public works has received the closest
attention of the ex-minister, and never
before withiu the same period have
ibe expenditures on public works been
made to yield such substantial returns.
While the aniouut at the disposal of
the department has ofteu been limited,
owing io the Imperative necessity for
retrenchment and economy iu every
branch of the public service, no real
need has beeu overlooked and whatever work has been done stands in the
nature of a permanent Investment.
The combined work of the lands,
works and timber offices has at al!
times received tlie closest attention of
Mr. Green, and llie reforms Introduced
iu the method and manner of discharging the public business have resulted
in obviating many of lbe delays that
in past years have occasioned much
annoyance to those transacting business with these departments. Never
before in the history of the province
lias the woik been expedited with the
laciiity of the present government,and
nny delays thai have been occasioued
bave been because of the Inevitable
routine of a system which it has beeu
impossible or inadvisable up ,o the
present to change.
While it is Impossible for a commis-
Bioner of lands aud works to avoid
causing antagonisms or arousing en-
miiies. no oue can truthfully say that
Mr. Greens department has not been
administered with the most absolute
Impartiality. No political or personal
fa.oritisnis have been shown and while
the discharge of his responsibilities
according to the letter and spirit of
the law have perhaps caused impatience at times, there will be no one
disposed to say that Mr. Green has
wavered in the performance of what
he has understood to be his duty. This
in itself, under such circumstances,
would be sufficient tribute to the
worth  of  the ex-minister.
To all excepting those to whom Mr.
Green confided the intimacies of his
private affaire his  resignation  at  this
time would appear inopportune. lt
should he Bald, however, lhat even a
minister of the crown is not wholly independent of his circumstances, and in
any case, the resignation would nut
have been long deferred, ll may not
have been accepted political expediency for Mr. Greeu lo resign at ihu
piSSent Juncture, hut it must be admitted that the occurrence displays a singular degree of political honor and honesty. Therefore, the suggestion that
there were embarrassing tijcunistanc-
t's calling for his action will be au rib-
ut - tl to discreditable motives and unworthy of serious notice or denial. The
tact that Mr. Green win accompany the
premier throughout the province and
will speak upon his platforms both in
answer to ciltlcisin of lhe department
ol which he has hud charge, and ln endorsement of the policy of the government, will iu itself be sufficient to give
the He to any statements that there
have been disagreements in the cabinet Those who know Mr. Green best
are aware that having adopted a cer-
laln course he is at all times and in
ull places prepared to justify his action. His campaigning for lhe premier
must then be accepted as final so far
as explanations, other than Mr. Green
himself has given, for his retirement
at the present time.
Now that he has vacated the office
the political animosities which are almost Inevitable will be softened, and
even those opposed politically to Mr.
Green will be disposed to tender him
their personal expressions of regret
ihat the government has lost a strung
member and the country a faithful and
efficient servant. We hope his place
will be filled by someone who will with
equal zeal for lhe public interest perform tlie onerous tasks which he has
iaid down.
VIRULENT   PARTIZANSHIP.
The Vancouver World can see no
good in any act of any member of the
provincial government. Its hate and
rage render it impotent to discriminate
between commendable statesmanship
and egregious error. The charm of
consistency is absent from its pages,
while, like Mr. Chamberlain, its memory is goue, but unlike him, not even
the memory of great events is spared
il A few months ago the opposition
press uas calling down maledictions ou
the heads of the administration because nothing had beeu done���It was
alleged���by Uie government to ameliorate the distressing labor conditions in
the province. It we do not mistake
ihe World was one of the most vigorous kickers at his so-called do-nothing
policy. Now that Finance Minister
TatlOW has entered iuto an arrangement with the immigration bureau of
the Salvation Army for the importation of selected and able-bodied laborers from our mother country the
World is more enraged and unreasonable than ever. As a specimen of vampire journalism we reproduce the following from its editorial columns of
a few  days ago:
itU   kvWUvl    u_S   Luc   int.v.*i��l.Jl    *fo   uouu
u__   p(VV_Ui>_   ��i.n  uutottjj  ia__._v.*  iuDUi

fcOter-iUKUi auu ueieat then scuemes.
ihe Cinanua minister is making another eiiort to bring in Cheap jaoor by
assisting members of the riaivatiuu
Army to leach our snores. Years ago
the late John itobson had a scheme
for the Importation ot Scotch crofters,
but he did not attempt to put it iu
motion until it had received the ap
proval of parliament. As we understand it. the "soldiers" will begin to
amve early In the year, and there will
probably be fresh scenes of wretchedness on our streets, the only difference being that the next comers -will
be Christians, while the Hindoos art-
heathens. The labor organizations are
already moving and will record vigorous protests against the Innovation It,
this constituency the opposition to this
scheme is marked and it is believed
thai public opinion will be exerted to
render it abortive."
Of Uie World screed we have lit'le
to say. A few days ago The Daily Canadian described to its readers the
conditions under which the government proposes to assist the Army immigration. We thought then and still
think that the government has found
a commendable solution of a very serious problem affecting Hritish Columbia.
We can only add at this time that
if the laboring classes in this province
permit themselves to be enticed into
hostility to the scheme eutered Into by
the government they will do themselves and their country such a serious
Injury that years will not suffice for
recovery from its effects. The labor
shortage in ihe West is one of the
most paralyzing situations affecting
the prosperity and development of the
country that could well be imagined.
The whole population Is almost a unit
on the desirability of English-speaking
and respectable Anglo-Saxon immigration, and as to such being preferable
to cheap Asiatic labor Hut labor we
must have, and if the labor organiza
tions allow themselves to be seduced
Into blocking lhe only feasible means
thai has been devised by which a high
standard of Immigration maj be maintained there will come a time whi n the
employer of labor will turn even as
a worm turns���und no amount ol high
sounding resolutions, threatened strike
or condemnatory speech making *11l
stay their hands. The) will have
relief.
Eor political purposes the World
would stir up strife and enpendi r hate
and opposition in order to obstruct desirable immigration. What In .us it to
the World? li has proved again and
again thai so far as the countrj is
conoerned it may go to perdition so
long as lbe political revenge ol the
World can be gratified Bul Isborlug
men have too much sense to be led In
to antagonism to those ol their own
language,  flesh  and   blood     It   nut.  tin*
consequences    will be   disastrous   to
Anglo-Saxons.
EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
There Is a mild breese ol criticism
detectable in the city over the taci
that there was no street Ulumlnatlon
during the festivities of Christmas eve
aud Christmas night, lu fact, the feeling ls prevalent thai the whole ol
Christmas week would have been gladdened if the street lights had been
brilliant in recognition of the occasion,
Doubtless the delicate position of the
city in the matter of \t\ arrangemeni
with the w. k. I. _ 1, Co is somewhat responsible for the omission, but
lhat excuse is not held valid by pedestrians and merchants on Baker street,
lo whom a brilliant light would mean
much pleasure aud many more dollars
during the holiday week. Il may be
thought carrying the criticism too far.
but it has been complained that on the
occasion of the visit of Commissioner
Coombs of the Salvation Army staff,
the city was Illuminated, while on the
universally observed anniversary of
the Prince of Peace there was uo recognition given in the same way. Tbe
illumination of the commissioner's triumphal tour may not have been an
error, although it was the establishment of a precedent which may become embarrassing at some future
time, but a special effort should have
been made to have the streets lighted
if even for a few hours ou Christmas
eve and Christmas night. a little
thoughtful attention to the relative importance of events would give less occasion for comment and perhaps add
materially to the eajoymenl of those
to whom one season Is above all
others.
The contest In the approaching elections will be between the lobbyists of
the Grand Trunk Pacific with the understrappers of Sir Wilfrid's government on the one hand and Un free
and independent electors of Hritish Columbia on the other.

Getting Energy Frdm Fruits.
So far as fresh fruils art.- eonm-ned,
more energy can be extracted from one
isound of plums than can be got from
a i.Hiund of dried figs or a pound or
prunes. Thu recenl scientific analysis
from which these sulking facts were
obtained bus attraotsd great attention
on the continent. Strawberries yield
the smallest amounl of energy from u
given weight compared with other
tiuils. HuHpbenles stand next, then
���blackberries, then watermelous, then
cranberries, and these again are followed by currant. Oue can get three
times Ibe amount of energy from a
pound of fresh plums lhat one can gei
irom a pound of watermelon! or raspberries. There ls nearly live times us
much energy available for extraction
In a pound of fresh plums as In a
pound of fresh strawberies.

bo lield today aud tomorrow in various .parts of the country. Nearly all
llle teachers who have gone out to the
islands during the past lew years have
either come home or married and retired, Jind so the government is great
ly iu need of 10b or more teachers to

Populist Party Dead.
Topeka', Kas., Dec. 27.���The Populist
tarty lu Kansas, or the remnant of tho
onoe powerful political organization
that twice succeeded iu carrying the
statts, has been given a decent burial,
following the certificate of death filed
Jn the shape of tho 1100 Populist votes
cast at the recent election. Pursuant
to the call of Chairman Hanna of the
state committee, a handful of the party leaders gathered iu conference here
today to take steps to disband the party formally and to wind up its affairs.
If the wishes of Chairman Hanna are
carried out the former Populists will
now ally themselves regularly with the
Republican organization.
