r STATES
Says That the Worst Feature
Low Prices at Which Farm Products Are
Selling This Fall.
By Cbaa. Q. DeFranee.
Fourteen or fifteen years ago John
W. Barry, a bright and energetic
young man from one of the eastern
states, came to Fairbury, Nebraska,
and took charge as principal of the
high schools of that city. After some
two or three terms he resigned his
position and became a partner in one
of the largest retail lumber firms of
Fairbury. ills partner had plenty of
capital and John had high business
ability. Crops were good for a number
of years in succession, many new set
tlers were coining to the county, and
the firm of Switzer & Barry prospered.
As time went on, and the inha bi
tants of Fairbury and vicinity became
better acquainted with Mr. Barry,
they came to look upon him as an
oracle on matters of statistics. Figures
were his especial delight, and by the
time the census reports of 1800 began
to be circulated generally, Mr. Harry
seemed to have at his tongue's end all
the important items therln. Hence, it
was natural that he should be the
referee in many a wrangle over ques
tions involving the results shown by
that census. Politically Mr. Barry af
filated with the republican party, and
all his compilations of statistics at
least, those he gave to the world con
eluded with a glorification of the
"grand old party." Nothing pleased
him better than to corner some long
whiskered populist, who porohanoe
bad called at the lumber yard on bust
ness, and bury him under an avalanche
of figures showing the unbounded
prosperity of Nebraska farmers. J
During the years 3131-2-3- he was the
bogy-man" of the republican party of
Jefferson county. Whenever a popu
list farmer got the better of his repub
llcan neighbor in a political argument,
the latter almost invariably managed
afterward to bring his populist broth
er and Mr. Barry together, start the
ball rolling and then chuckle softly to
himself while Barry bewildered the
farmer with column after column of
statistics.
Finslly Mr. Barry's love of figures
led him out of the retail lumber bust'
ness. He compiled a valuable lumber
men's aotuary and removed to Chicago
to superintend its publication and sale;
then he organized a lumbermen's com
mercial agency, but afterward sold
ont to a rival concern, and then bought
aa interest in the Northwestern Lum
bennan, a trade Journal devoted to
lumber interests, published at Chicago,
He is at present one of the editors of
that Journal.
When the campaign of '06 began to
wax warmer and warmer, the republi
can county central committee engaged
Mr. Barry to make half a dozen
speeches in Jefferson county, supposing
that he eonld, as in the years before,
astonish his hearers with apparently
reliable statistics showing the bene-
flcent effects of "the present gold
standard. " But for some reason the
speeches fell fiat. People who were
formerly unable to detect the fallacies
aad sophistries in Mr. Barry's speeches
were no educated in statistical mat
ters. Hence, Instead of gazing in
open-mouthed wonder at a mathemati
cal prodigy, who, apparently had all
of ths Tenth Census committed to
Memory, his audience smiled knowing
ly, as If to say, "Your figures regard
lag an Increased money circulation
are very pretty, but when we feel
down in our pockets and find not a
sou, it is hard to make us believe we
have more money than ever."
Whether Mr. Barry's iuvestigatlons
had in faot con verted him is not known,
but It is certain his speeches at that
time had little effect Although pro
leasing a profound belief la the single
standard, his arguments seemed to
have lost much of their former vigor.
As editor of a trade journal It Is Mr,
Barry's duty to tell his readers fscts,
not fsaolful theories. And while he
would not hesitate to take advantage
of a political satsgonlst by skillful
Juggling ef figures, jet when It eomcs
to a matter of duty, Mr. Barry can be
relied on to tell the whole truth. In
all probability he Is today talking
"MsKlaley prosperity" to biwetalllaUi
but whea he talks to lumbermen
gerdlag preaeat eoadltloua, this Is
what be sayst
"The worst feature of esUtlnf eoa

FACTS
of Existing Conditions is the
Klnley prosperty" think of such a
statement? Mr. Barry is not a demo
pop, but on the contrary a most ar
dent republican or at least he was
the last time I saw him. The worst
feature affecting the lumber trade is
"the low prices at which farm pro
ddcts are selling"; doesn't that feature
affect many other trades? Doesn't
it affect the farmers too?. "The com
paratively high price" of wheat is
good. The price has never been
"high" under "McKinley prosperity"1
only "comparatively high." And
this comparatively high price was
caused by MoK no, "a shortage in
Europe and other parts of the world."
When wheat was comparatively high,
corn sympathized "to a sufficient ex
tent to elevate the prico to a paying
basis." It surely can't be on a pay
ing basis now, since it has ceased to
"sympathize" and wheat has gone
down. One thing Mr, Barry will need
to guard against if he keeps on writ'
ing such truthful matter regarding
existing conditions, tho Hay ward-Bee-Journal
speech-writing syndicate will
"dissect" him; and their task will be
just as difficult as the one they under
took lost week. '
o
Speaking of "dUsectlng"i
State Treasurer Meserve, on Monday
night, September 20, at the Oliver
theatre in Lincoln, poured some hot
shot into the fellows who wrote the
speech Judge lisyward delivered at
the L'an caster county convention come
days ago. He told everything in a
straightforward manner which carried
conviction to bis audience. Hardly a
statement of figures made by Judge
Uayward in his Lincoln speech was
correct, and Treasurer Mescrve won
ders why an artstocratlo guntleman
like Judge Uayward, aitpiring to the
highest office in tho st ate, did not come
directly to the various state otllccsand
obtain whatever figures he desired
direct from the records.
The treasurer declared that had
Judge Hay ward done so, every courtesy
would have been accorded him; but it
seems the judge preferred to have the
Bee and Journal reporters prepare his
speech. It may be that, like the song,
"He's sorry now he spoke," for the
speech is so utterly unreliable in mat
ters of figures that no relf-rcspecting
man can knowingly deliver it to ap
intelligent audience.
Commenting on the Hayward speech
the other day, the State Journal said;
"As a matter of fact, there are
just about tho same balances in
the treasury in the general and
sinking funds today, as during
the Bartley administration."
Balance sheets in auditor's office
show the following:
Aug. 81, 1800, general and
Sinking funds $004,080 74
Aug. 81, 1898, general and
Sinking funds' 11,553 79
Bartly had only a little over sixty
times as much in these two funds just
two years before as Meservo had on
the last day of August, this year; but
it isn't hard for the Journal to lio 6,000
per cent.
On August 81 Treasurer Meserve had
on hand In all funds 1407,441.06, but
only two of the funds, the general and
the sinking, are available for reduc
tion of interest-bearing state debt. A
number of the funds need to bo trans
ferred to the general fund but this re
quires legislative action. When Trees
urer Meserve took charge of his office
ho received from Mr. Hartley the fol
lowing funds which were available for
reduction of state debt.
General fund. 1304,217 84

The only time in the history of re

BODY TAKEN FROM THE GRAVE.
friends and Relatives of Mrs. Konkal Say
. She Was Insane Another Esamloatlea
of the Polioned Woman's Remains
Made by ProfoMor llartow,
Lxwbknck, Kan., Oct. 11. The body
of Mrs. J. J. Kunkel waa taken from
the grave this morning to make an ex
aralnation regarding the method of
embalming. Amnio was used in the
embalming process and the examina
tion waa to determine that the arsenic
found in the stomach was entirely
separata from that used in embalming.
This examination was conducted by
several physicians of the city and an
analysis will be made by l'rof. Edward
llartowof the University of Kansas,
who made the analysis that resulted in
the arrest of Mr. KunkoL
Mr. Hartow was at work in his lab
oratory this morning but was unwill
ing to talk about tho result of his
work in the Kunkel case. The analy
sis of the brain and some of the inter
nal organs of lilrdie Cotnlngore is now
in progress under Mr, llurtow's direc
tion and, while it will bo more diffi
cult to ascertain the cause of death in
her case than in thirl of Mrs. Kunkel
on account of the long time the body
has lain in the gntvc, still, if the poi
son was given in anything like the
quantities used lu Mrs. Kunkel's case,
that fact can be uncurtained. Mr.
Hartow thinks It will take him till
next week to determine definitely the
results of his examination In this case.
A feeling In favor of Kunkel has de
veloped in the last twenty-four hours,
and the officers now are even inclined
to believe that it will be hard to con
vict him of the charge' against him.
This morning a telegram was received
from Bcattlo, Wuxh., atklng if Kunkel
needed any assistance in any way and
proffering financial or other aid that
might be needed. It Is stated that
Mr. Kunkel has decided to associate
Judge George J, ltarkcr with Judge
Norton in defense of the case.
Mrs. Kunkel's sister told a number
of people when she was here, at the
tlmo her sister died, that she believed
Mrs. Kunkel was insane and not re
sponsible for her acts, and that she
would go on the witness etand and
testify to that fact. Other friends and
relatives of Mrs. Kunkel are said to be
willing to swear to the same state of
affaire. This has led to the belief that
the defense for Mr. Kunkel will be
that Mrs. Kunkel poisoned her daugh
ter and then took the same method to
put an end to, her own life. The fact
that Intimates of the family will tes
tify that Kunkel's family relatione
were pleasant and that there was no
motive for him to wish to get hie
step-daughter and wife out of the way
will make the defense's case a very
strong one.

Cp.
Not so very long ago all guns were
cut by pouring molten Iron into a
mold and then letting It cool slowly;
but it was found that guns made in
that way were not strong enough to
stand tbe tremendous strain of the
large charges of powder required to
send a shot fast enough to enable It
to pierce the steel armor of a modern
ship of war; so tbe old method of cast
ing was abandoned as the v-mor be
came stronger, and now r '.y all
modern cannon are what li called
"built up." First a long steel tube of
the finest and slronnent metal is made,
and around this are placed, or "shrunk
on," succe-Blve cylinders or rings, one
over the other, with the greatest care
and nicety, first the "Jacket" and then
the "hoops." Bo nowadays a great
gun, Instead of being one piece, as It
used to be, Is composed of many parts.
Tbe pcoceiw above described Is called
"assembling" a gun, and In the place
of the short cast-Iron cannon of for
mer days, shaped something like a big
bottle, we have that long, graceful
teel rifles, which look not unlike
gigantic watch-keys. Tory vary in size
from the small rapid-fire guns, a few
hundred pounds in weight, to the great
thirteen-Inch "Peacemaker," as it was
fondly called, which tipped the scales
at sixty tons 120,000 pounds, All
these modern guns are breech-loaders,
and after the shot and powder have
been placed In the pow ler-chamber,
the breech is closed by a sled "breach
plug," which Is shoved Into the gun
and by a short turn Is screwed tight
Into the breech, The shot or shell has
also undergone a chanse, Tbe round
cannon-ball most of us are familiar
with hasglvenway to l)" "projectile,"
which Is made of steel, hardened ac
cording to the work It bns to do; and
In those that are intended to pierce
armored ships tbe metal must be so
hard that the projectile can be fired
through steel armor of a thickness
equal to one-eighth more than Its di
ameter, without its being broken or
materially injured;' for Instance, an
eight-Inch projectile, according to this
rule, must be capable of piercing a
nine-inch steol plate Rt. Nicholas.
