THE CLANS GATHERING.
Co-Operatlon With i be Dcmocrts SUd to bo
Out of tuo Question. Entirely.
The People's party convention for the
nomination of a congressman from the
Seventh district will assemble in the city
today; tomorrow the state convention will
assemble to nominate a state ticket, con
gressman at large, &c.
In anticipation of these conventions the
city is practically full of third party
guests. They are here by the hundred and
every train that comes in brings more.
The Occidental hotel is the great center of
attraction and nil day yeterday the side
walk in front of that institution was so
crowded with third partyitcs that it was
with difficulty one could pick
his way through there. Indeed the crowd
was to dense iu the evening that a police
man had to stand in front of the hotel
and keep a passage way open for pedes
trians. The reason why the Occidental is
so popular is the fact that it la the head
quarters of Jerry and other leaders, but
particularly Jerry. If Jerry had chosen
to take up his logings in a freight car the
crowd would follow him. They all wanted
to be near him and to breathe the very air
that he breathed. The man who has a
speaking acquaintance with Jerry
is looked upon by the rank
and file of the Alliance as a very favored
individual and hence it is the ambition of
every delegate to shake his hand and be
remembered by him five minutes after
wards. Now Ive-j, and Willits and Scott
and Chase and Calhoun are all big men
who are worth knowing but in the eyes of
the Alliance people are common people
as compared with Jerry. The average Al
liance man would rather be known by
Jerry than by all of them put together.
Jerry knows this and he uses it to the best
advantage. He has been the hero of the
day and will probably be the hero of the
entire convention period as long as it lasts.
When he came to the hotel Sunday he
picked out the very commonest room in
tue iiouse ana took care there was no vis
ible sign of luxury about it. He will not
even have it supplied with chairs and his
visitors invariably sit on the edge of the
bed, three or four of them in a row. like
they do in the country when chairs are
"short" and beds "Ioug." This simplicity
aengnts wnoever is iortunate to be a vis
itor to his room and they leave him more
confident than ever of his greatness. At
torney General Ives is quite different from
Jerry. He meets his guests in the parlor
where he gives them nice rockers and
sofas to sit in. He does not use as many of
the artifices of the demogogue as Jerry, to
make himself popular with the constitu
ents and as a consequence the rank aud
file accuse him of being more or less an
aristocrat. His presence in the city has
created but very little enthusiasm and if
all signs do not fail, he will be as far from
the gubernatorial chair after the conven
tion as he is now. John Willits is aUo at
the Occidental and is rather a prorniuent
figure. He is even more Democratic than
Jerry and there is a naturalmess about his
manners that one fails to see in the sock
less statesman. Jerry shows in his gold
rimmed spectacles, white shirt,
tailor-made clothes, derby bat and
fine shoes au attempt, at least, to
be dudish. But it is entirely different in
the case of John Willit. He is rough and
rugged, wears a colored shirt, slouch hat,
and shoes the same as are usually worn by
the average farmer. He has a room at
the Occidental, to be sure, but he hardly
ever uses it for consultation or slate mak
ing. If anybody wants to talk privately
with him he will take him aside, lean up
against a telegraph post and hear what he
has to say.-
If the fight lies between Ives and Willit
for governor the latter will capture the
prize if all signs do not fail. The appear
ance of things may change, however, when
the other two candidate for the position,
Elder and Vincent appear on the field. It
is admitted that Vincent is the strongest
man by mostly all the leaders present,
although it is also admitted that Willits is
gaining every hour.
There was one thing very noticable all
day yesterday and that was the coolness
manifested towards the proposed plan of
fusion. Mostly all the leaders pretend to
be against it. Even Jerry, who is the ac
cidental result of a fusion himself, seems
to be unfriendly to it or if not unfriendly he
is at least oue of those who believe co-operation
will not be effected. It is impossible
really to predict with any degree of satety
the result of the convention. It is all very
well to say so and so will be the nominee
for a certain office but you would beioolish
to bet on it. Yesterday morning it seemed
that a person could safely bet ten to oue
that Overmeyer would be the Alliance
nominee for coagressman-at-large; last
night oue would be foolish to bet one
against 100 that be would be. There is an
uncertainty about their every action. The
cause of Overmeyer's fall was freely dis
cussed last night and it was the
opinion of everybody that he would
not only be the nominee but that
his name would not be presented
to the convention at alL It was an inter
view which he held, concerning his recent
ly published letter, with a reporter of the
Kansas City Times and which was pub
lished in that paper yesterday. The inter
view is as follows:
That his positiou might be definitely un
detstopd before the people's party conven
tion meets the Times correspondent called
on Mr. Overrnyer today and asked him
about the letter referred to above.
"It is garbled as published," said he,
"some things are left out. For instance:
Where I say that I uever mw a party plat
form with which I agreed in every respect
I added, 'and this is no eiception.' These
words were omitted, as the letter was pub
lished. Also in reference to the railroad
question, I said: I am opposeu to tne
ownership and operation of the railroads
by the government. I regard that idea as
impracticable and fraught with irreat dan
ger.' These words alto were omitted from
the printed letter. Whether these omis
sions were intentional or accidental I can

it point out a'single thing in tuat letter

many years. In my letter accepting the
nomination for congress four years azo I
said: ?he time has come when we must

nopoly, monopoly of news autl Intorma

the Capital simply lacks Informa

take the pains to look a little while at

"Will you attend the Wichita conven
tion?" Xo, I think not. I am not seeking any
nomination, besides urgent business calls

"The statement is absolutely false. I

and I say so now. The Democracy of tne
east and south are all right and ready to
go as far and as fast as their safety will
permit, aud thty constitute a mighty host
of as true and feeriess men as ever lived.
The political line of battle is now drawn
between the east on the one hand and the
west and the south on the other. Tne
Democratic party will be compelled to
makt it. choice, it must- shake the east or
lose its hold upon the west and south. It
has survived many vicisitndes of fortune
and is as nearly indestructible as any noli
tical party can be, thJs is because of the
correctness of its fundamental principles,
and because a vast majority of the white
people of this country believe in these
principles, and adhere to the party under
all circumstances. If the party does not
almays do what they think it ought to do
they reason, and very correctly, too, that
any other party strong enough to hope to
gam control of the government, would
be subject to the same tempta
tion to vacillate and jockey for position
that sometimes has compromised the Dem
ocratic party. They can not, therefore, be
easily iuduced to leave the party to whose
principles they are wedded and whose his
tory aud traditions inspire them, and go
into other parties. They are extremely
liberal, however, toward all men whom
they believe to hold honest convictions
and to desire the welfare of the people, and
no set sf men on earth will make greater
E artisan sacrifices for the genernl good,
ut there is, of course, a point beyond
which tht-y will not go, and it will be well
for all concerned to recognize that fact at
the present time in this state."
"The Populist of this city reports you

Shawnee county Democratic convention:
'It that be Democracy I am no longer a
Democr.it.' Did you say that?"
"No, sir. 1 never said anything of the
Kind there or elsewhere."
Overmeyer's friends in the Alliance who
saw the interview were red hot last night
and swore by all that was good nud bad
that the Democrats could uo longer bull
doze them There was some talk early iu
the day that the congressional convention
which assembles this morning would
probably adjourn till Friday without mak
ing any nomination for the purpose of giv
ing Jerry Simpson a chance to expose him
self to the lightning in the state conven
tion without loosing his chances iu the
former convention in case he was not suc
cessful. The report has not much founda
tion. Jerry seems to be perfectly satisfied
with what he is going to get
in the congressional convention and does
not seem to like the idea of being consider
ed so hoggish. There is still talk of a dark
horse for the gubernatorial office and a
possibility that he may be a Wichita man.
But as stated before it is unsafe to predict
anything concerning the result. Tney
don't know themselves what they are go
ing to do.

increasing to a jostle on the streets every
Saturday that cannot fail to enliven the
most morose of skeptics. A prominent
traveller who watched the surging crowds
on the main streets last Saturday evening,
w:i3 so much interested that he did not
smother the honest sentiment which arose
within him, that "Wichita is today the
liveliest city to be found anywhere in the
It is enough to feel gratified over mere
commercial activity, but we expect an
other and more valuable result from an
inward prosperity, and in case it comes
not, are bound to court dubious senti

The real certainty of an improvement is
more pleasurable when we find that our
local prosperity h.is attracted outside at
tention and won the confidence that in
spires investment aud enterprise bj' stran
gers. Such a thing has happened. A company
of British and Aiierican capitalists have
been watching western cities with a view
to locating some paying enterprise. In
the cold and unprejudiced judgment of a
choice, iu the progmatic balance of a ques
tion of profit and loss, in business-like
proposition of dividends likely to be re
turned, thty have chosen Wichita as the
point for the location of a large electric
light aud power plant. In the face of the
fact that this city has already two prosper
ous plants, this company has seen in pres
ent necessities and futuro possibilities,
room for another plant.
An ordinance asking a franchise was in
troduced in the council last evening and
will tome up at the next regular meeting.
Eli H. Chandler of Kausas City is the
agent of the company who has taken the
initiatory steps towards locating the plant
in this city. "Mr. Charles tfreucb is at the
head of our compauy," Mr. Chandler said
to a reporter for tue EAGLE yesterday. The
company has looked over the field and
concluded that Wichita is the coming city
of the west. They believe that this city
has outgrown the boom and has already
taken the first steps iu a new and more
substantial progress. Mr. Ffrench is of
Kausas City, but most of the Americans
in our company are of Chicago and Boston.
The compauy intends to put in a plant at
once costing from 100,000 upwards, and
will enlarge if trade demands it.- We will
be able to furnish 100 arc lights and 10.000
iucandescents, with motor power to run
sewing machines, dental eugines, jewelers'
lathes, coffee mills and motor power for
other light machinery. The schedule of
prices is as low as is shown by the maxi

Jerry Simpson is ia town. He descend
ed Sunday nicrnt. He is at the Occidental
which is called the Dutton Hou-e of
Wichita. They do say that at other times
when nominations were not so close Jerry
selected S3 rooms and not 61 conveniences.
Let that pass.
Calumny will say anything. Jerry is
wearing a narrow rimmed derby. It is
not becoming. The soft Stetson, which
was his first love, did not merit a con
signment to the ash barrel. It brought
out bw sharp features better and conform
ed to his piquant characteristics more
than the stitf covering now oft set awry.
He is the center of attraction. To say
less would be to f et much down amiss.
He has a deal to say and says it well. Hear
"It is hard work in congress. There is
a prvailing opinion that a seat m congress
is a soft snap "
A strauger joins the crowd.
"How are you, Jerry?"
"How are you?"
"You don't know me, Jerry?"
"Oh jes I do; Smith."
"You're right; I'm Smith."
"And how is Barton county?" and Jerry
goes through a mental struggle to locate
"Right again; Barton's all right,"
"Fusion will not go," continued Jerry,
catching his mustache with emphasis.
"There are wire-pullers in the Alliance,
but these are in a minority. The rank
and file are against wire-pulling and the
the fusionites will find their efforts of no
avail. The time may come when the
hucksters and fixers will predominate in
the Alliance, but it is not jet "
"How are you?"
"My name's Oleson."
"I know yon you're a Swede and from
"That's right," and the Scandavian gave
vent to a cachiuation.
"And a Swede kicker, insisted Jerry, "i
the boss kicker,"
"I read both Michelet's and Carlyle'.s
histories of the French Revolution,"
Jerry went on. "I like Carlysie best. '
One must understand Carlyle before he
undertakes it, however. His language is
sledge-hammer-like, and he puts a whole
book in one sentence. The French Revo
lution was a great epoch in human affairs.
It rightea much, but by great wrongs.
There has never been a true history of the
French Revolution written. Every history
of it has been written by its enemies "
"How are you, Jerry?"
"How are you, and how is McPherson?"
"All right. 1 see you have been holding
them level in congress; but Jerry, you
ought to have voted for the anti-option
Everything sobered down. This was
grit in the oil.
Jerry said nothing, absolutely nothing.
"Fuustou made a good speech on it,"
said another Alliance man.
"Yea," said Jerry, ever light of heart,
curled his lip with a curt sneer.
The air was getting decidedly foggy.
"It is a good measure," said another
solemn patriarch. "It will pass, won't it
"If it does," he replied withont a smile,
"it will kill off all you farmers."
"How are yon, Jones?"
"How are you, Ainsworth? Yes, I've

"Hoiv are you, Brown?"
And Jerry had, by his greeting at the
advent of these new , constituents, recov

from what appeared to be a most embar
"Great men!" said Jerry with a hearty
laugh. "I am more convinced than ever
that great man are after all only humau
beings. Scratch the veneer oil them and

I first went to Washington I was abashed
in their presence. I wanted to get down
so I could look up to them and worship

'Well, Jerry," interrupted a naw comer,

"Xow, don't," said Jerry, relaxing into
