It is suite evident that Senator Haima is out for the republican presidential nomina tion. The organs supporting the presi dential ambitions ot the gentleman from Ohio are becoming bitter In their ftght against President Roosevelt, and, aa the latter haa a very large follow iowing, there promises to be a warm contest In the Chicago convention. ., The western public all along haa been led to believe that Mr. Roosevelt's nomination was a certainty. Months j ago it was announced that enough state j organizationa had declared tor him to insure his nomination. The president assumed the popular attitude on all the great issues arising since hla in cumbency, and in almost every public utterance baa discussed the encroach ments of the trusts. The president has created at least one new republic on the western hemisphere, and the nation haa rejoiced In Its liberty-loving fash ion. Frauds have been unearthed at Mr. Roosevelt's instigation, and It can k u-uthfuny said he haa endeavored U be the friend of the people." Mr. Kooeevelt is an "accidental president," bat. having become the executive head eg th nation, he haa acquired practic ally all of the power which cornea to an elected president. While Mr. Roosevelt Is the choice ot perhaps the majority of the rank and file "of his party, because of Vf rather todepeadent political course, Mr. H an na has the formidable support of that equally as important class the manu facturers. Iff one thing to designate a manufacturer a "trust" and quite an other to make him believe it. There is a decided difference of opinion as to this.. Campaign funds must come from men of means, and It is said of Mr. Roosevelt he haa not endeared himself to. them by his frequent anti-trust declarations. On the other hand. Sen ator Hanna haa discreetly refrained from'ill-Omed reference to the Bnanclal Interests of the country, which would lend lm unstinted ttppor, ,,,Hla pop." 'olarlty with the laboring classes has 'lately been exemplified, and all in all tie Is regarded in many quarters as She man to whom the " nomination -should go. . s j I j f Of the newspaper which are out for the Ohio senator the Cincinnati Com mercial Tribune is most persistent. Thls paper regards the purposed nom ination of Mr. Roosevelt as a danger ous experiment, and it roundly scores the manner in which the president's v.orv,Tvim I twins; carried on. In an JKfll TIT ptterance entitled "No Rough Riding lover the Republican Voters," the Com- ; merclal Tribune refers to Mr. Roose velt aa "the professor of the school of mug wumpery," and that, "to have the republican voters think and deliberate. In fatal to the candidacy of Mr. Room- j Velt." The Tribune has all along been ! ipposing the nomination of Mr. Roose velt, and during the pant two weeks has denounced what it regards as the Indecent haste" In the selection of 'delegates , to the national convention. i Discussing . a local issue which haa been fully reported In the Associated j Press, the Tribune says: ' "We regret that Senator Foraker should have lent his Influence to any i snap convention calling or to any at tempt to Interfere with the ; regular course of party organization. We hope i that the reports he haa done so are not ( correct. He has every reason to trust the voters of the party, and surely does not desire to commit them to a hasty decision upon so Important a matter.as - the selection of a candidate for presi dent of the United States. He may desire the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt but he certainly knows it would be fa tal at the election, if this nomination should be the result of the work of a ellque of officeholders or against the wishes of the majority of the voters ; of the party. "There is no need of undue haste. i Ko one seems to be in a hurry, save ; tht hlta - -..'...- , f "Let the people consider the dangers ot tht nomination. Let kew dHb4 etata aa to Ow risks the party ts to as sume It It names Mr. Roosevelt, v j The convention dops not meet until June 21, and the longer Mr. Rooae velfs candidacy Is discussed the more correct will be the Judgment of the peo ple who chooae the delegate. Snap eonventlona may please Mr. Roosevelt, but they do not appeal to the people. "Give the people plenty ot time, they will do the right thing. They Ul not betray the party. They have only Its success and honor at heart. They will tell the senators and the president ho they want to lead them." From which It Is quite epparent that Mr, Roosevelt, la to have formidable .opposition at the Chicago convention, with Mr. Haar.J. aa the Meat ot the opposition. tAJONBAOtElOlg.. The mayor of Severance, Kanaaa, Is plainly determined that the young men ot that town aha!l marry if he haa to take tbem by the scruff ot their necks and hustle tbem himself to the altar. Aa local potentate, ha haa Issued an trade that every bachelor in hla domain must take unto himself a wife during the present year of grace under penalty of a heavy fine. .He further advises the young women ot Severance to Improve this -leap-year opportunity by looking the masculine collection over and pick ing out what they want.pronuaing them that It will go hard with any young man that dares to balk. That's right! exclaims the New York Commercial. Hunt the rascals down! Stop not with a fine, but arm the young women with shotguns and let them (lush the by-ways and hedges and com pel the cowardly scoundrels to chalk the mark. Bring them to Limerick! Let not the crime of race suicide sully Severance's fair name! A thousand tlmea better a few cases of homicioei If these young recreants are so busy putting the dollar above the roan that they cant think of marrying, let the young women aelie both. Let them show themselves worthy of the state of Carrie Nation and Mary Ellen Lease. It la unfortunate, of course, that the young omen of Severance should be forced to adopt such heroic tactics. It is to be remembered, however, that It may not be their fault It they poaaesa qualities that would dislocate a clock They probably weren't consulted In the matter. Besides, they may outgrow It At any rate the efforts of the mayor of Severance In the encouragement of borne Industry Is altogether commend able. Details are published of a wonderful new motor Invented by Peter Thornley, an English engineer. The Invention la considered of such importance that Its development may result In express rail way engines running; at twice) Yhelr present speed at only half the cost and in Atlantic lines crossing from Liver- nor.I tn Xew York in three days. It Is almoat amajl enough to be carried in a typewriter "case." The new motor Is capable of developing fifteen horse power urider a boiler pressure of two hundred pounds to the square Inch. In even the best railway locomotive the steam la admitted after the piston has moved from five to eight Inches along the cylinder. Mr. Thornley has de vised a valve which will admit a given quantity of steam at every commence ment of the stroke and so nicely ad justed that the expansive force of the steam admitted is Just sufficient to drive the piston at the end of Its Jour ney. By the most modest estimate the saving in coal is 25 per cent, while the Initial con Is much cheaper than ex- sting types. Of the great crops raised through out practically all of the country, corn stands first and is given a value for the crop year 1903 of almost $953,0li).- 000. Second of the agricuittirai prod ucts grown in practically all the states tomes hay, which crop wa estimated to have a value in 1903 of more than 56,0OO,OOO, ... , Professor Karf , Schjelch, of Berlin. has received from the university of Wurzburg a medal and a 1000-mark prize for the discovery of a method Of making surgical operations painless by what he calls the "lnnltratlonsanaes- thesle." which Is much safer than chloroform or ether. Rudyard Kipling, In a letter to Sir Clinton Edward Dawklns, advocates that 10 per cent of the time devoted to cricket and football in the British public schools should be allotted to military drill. It has been discovered that the X ray will' kill mice. Unfortunately the mice htfve to be canght first, so the discovery Is of no practical value. th kvngra on around houses V. a . -A v During the calendar year Just closed the treasury sent J15.151.000 to nfove the crops, agalnat .1MM.W0 the pr, ceding year.

All PnrUvl- pauts Under .Mr. Itvbinaoti. A stage rehearsal ot Queen Esther was held In Fisher's opera house last night. The work of the large chorus of 75 voice was excellent, and the dif ferent parla showed careful trauinlng. The soloists were all well up In their rolea. Miss Reba Hobaon, who la to sing the title role, possesses a soprano vole ot power and sweetness. Both her vocal renditions and dramatic work are sure to bl.e her trtenda. Oeorge C; Wat- kins, aa Asaauerua the king, will be a favorite. His deep baas voice la well adapted to the part assigned him. Frank Camahan will alng the role of Hainan, tha premier. In an excellent manner. He haa a voice of unusual power and will show it to good ad vantage in Queen Esther. Tht con tralto role of Zereah. Haman'a wife, will be taken by Mrs. Frank Spittle. This Is a difficult part and gives great Opportunity for dramatic work. The duett by Haman and Zeresh are partlc ularly fine. Jamea Johnaon will use his rich tenor voice In portraying Mor decal, the Jew. Thla part Is very high and requires much ability. That Mr. Johnson will do It well Is conceded by all who have heard him. The other 10 solo parts are In competent hands. The chorus ls large and unusuully strong tn volume, The drills by pages and scarf girls 111 be fascinating In deed, more so than anything of like nature yet seen here. The coetunu-s are gorgeous and will add greatly to the beauty of the performance. Reserved scats are on sale today at Griffin's book store. Admission, 50 ana 75 cents. HAMLET'S NARROW ESCAPE.
