KANSAS POPFUSTS CMNO TO SILVER.
Kansas City, Kan.. Nov. 2C.-An evening paper
here printed a story yesterday of the Populist
Itteotl-g held Friday in this city. The story ls
substantiated, and the following details printed:
"Jerry" Simpson ls charged by the faction that
ls loyal to I.ewelllng With being the father of tho
Btovefntut against the Governor. W. A. Harris,
Senator ivffcr and some of the other members of

THE MAYORALTY CAMPAION IN CHICAGO.
Chlc;.go. Nov. 2<*.?It ls probable the Republican
managers will settle down steudlly to work this
w.-ek. They did not do much during the last week,
an.l th" Democrats, though torn up by factions,
have made much more progress In the campaign pre?
liminaries. Though nothing has been definitely
settled as yet. lt is probable the special day of
registration will stand without formal protest on
the part of the Republican Committee. There wau
a full meeting of the city Council Committee yes?
terday, lt was agreed to make a thorough canvaso
of every precinct, to ascertain who are not reg
tstered, but entitled to register; who are on tho
registers that should no' be there; also to ascertain
the choice of the voters tor Mavor. The can?
vassing books, whl.-h lt took a week to prepara,
w.-t.* handed out. The canvass will begin to?
morrow. Notwithstanding some drawbac-s, tho
prospects for Swift's election are bright.
The revelations mad- at th- City Hall during tho
lust two .lays cannot fall to have a demoralUInu
effect on the Democrats. One of the leaders has
been charged with irrave offences, such as stuffing
the payrolls and appointing utterly Incompetent
men to Inspect public works. The charge ls made
by u fellow-Democrat, who has held the office ot
Lied lon Commissioner.
