I'efl t. the first ntid only Populist. United
States Senator anil founder of the Popu

ilauphter nt Oronolu, Knn.
A few monihs ago he suffered the nm
putrition of a le that a history on Popu-L-in
upon wldch ho was nt work, might
io con pleted. It was to havn been kept
in 'Mi- archives of the Knnwia State His
oniul Society to bo road by historians
in i curs to come.
It does not take n long political memory
-. recall tlii sensation which Senator
ppfcr made when ho went to Wash
inc'nn iim United State Senator. Ho
w. e a heard which obscured his whol
fi. e except his nose and eyes and ci
'pnded half way to IiIh walnt. Tlio whis
kers ln'oamo famous from ono end of tho
country to tho other and despati-hen
from Washington wore known to con
urn Senator Peffer when they spoke
f v-viier without mentioniiiK a name.

in tV' sK-ond year of tho civil war
f..uii-d a-- n private in tlio Eighty-third
ttesiment of Illinois Volunteers. He
served tn the end of th" war and was
inu-trred out ranked an a Lieutenant.
He went to Clarkville. Twin., and
beiz.in the practice of law but soon after
inrd went to Kansas, where lie lived for
the rcst pf his lir. He established two
rcur.trv n"wspnpt-rs and in 1871 was

FnpuliM Senator. Seven years later,
v.n he had retired from tho Senate, ho

nor Then he went back to his desk
and spent the rest of his year a a writer.
In a contribution to the Xorth American
lititcir, written while he was still in tho
Senate, he wrote a terfo nummary of
the I'opuiistic creed. It has many familiar
la nnd several familiar phrases:
1h Populist party is nu organized
remand that the functions of government
t-hall bo exercised only for tho mutual
h-netlt of all tho people. It asserts that
fovernmcnt is useful only to tl extent
that it servos to advance tho common
weal Believing that the publje good
i. paramount to private interests, it pro
tests against the delegation of sovereign
powers to private agencies.
It's motto is 'Equal rights to all; special
privileges to none.' Devoted to the in
terests for which the Constitution of the
I nited States was adopted, it proposes
to insure domestic tranquillity by se
1 tiring to every man and wom.in what they
arij, to 'establish justice" bv procuring
an quitable distribution of tlio products
and profits of labor: to 'promote tho gen
eral welfare' by abolishing class legislation-
to 'secure the blessings of liberty
to ourselves and our posterity' by pro
tecting 'he producing masses against
th spoliation of speculators und usurers."
."nator PelTer was ono of the first
to raise a loud volco against Wall Street.
He fought "entrenched capital" and
vested interests" with all the vigor of

and I ailof Populism in thoUnitodStates."
Mr PelTer was a striking figure in
the senate during his period of service

In'l. cadaverous, lynx' eved, soft of
n.e h and of tread, 'humbfo in manner

Kxpiii't, to Decide,
Ilccause. Mlstl Anna Heleno Vreeland
an enhitsiastic chttrcli worker living at JCS
Grant nvenuo, Jersey City, decided to
dlspos of her $33,oou worth of property
and ko to the northoni part of India, wherfe
sho proposed to establish a homo for
missionaries and to tako an active .parti
in tho work, a nephew, Raymond V,
Baylor, a Jersey City lawyer, has obtained ,
an order from tho New Jersey Court). ot
Chancery appointing a commission toln '
quire Into Ida aunt's sanity.
Frank P. MoDermott, MisetyrocUnd'ttsI
attorney, applied yesterdays fort an, ordei
vacating tne appointing or tne-oonuniavs 1
elon, declaring that alio in porfeotlyeanft a
and intends to tako tho first BtearneMofl
India as soon aa sho settles her oulOsi
affairs. Miss Vreeland personally g)Up4i
ports several Indian missionaries.
Miss Vreeland presented , an, aflldasrlsld
doclaring herself to bo sane. So jiumeihJ
ous were the other amdavits of IrJaadjiii
and particularly her family physlciad,!
Dr. Horaoo a. Bidwell, that IVloe-Chan ;
cellor Mndley.M. Garrison wan samesv
what pulled. He finally decided thaAherfl
would appoint, an expert on Insanity '
and if tho phynloianv declares t Miss Vreo j
tana to be sane mat slioud end the matters .
Tho court declined to vacato tho orderi'
appoint Ing tho commission, declaring hat
it would establish a precedent which would ,
bo bad form. The Vioo-Chanccllorsaidl ,
"It Is a serious thing to be able to com '
into court and obtain an order calling
for a commission to examine a person
allogcd to be insano without having a
preliminary examination. Home changes
must bo made in the present insanity
laws of New Jersey, which aro grossly de
fective. During the summer I had occa
sion to look into our Inwtnlty laws very
closely, and 1 am firmly convinced that
all sorts of amendments uro needed.
Hut I cart't take tho place of a jury nnd de
cide that because this woman nnd her
friends insist that she is sane thut I can
fo decide, although personally I nni very
much impressed with the case that she
has made out and am fairly well convinced
that she is sane. If I had the power I
should most certainly withdraw the
commission. Hut 1 havn not."
In affidavits presented byMiss Vreeland
it wns brought out that in February of
this venr she disposed of her property
to Iloibert J. Bennett, associated with her
in the Pentecostal culUundor nn agree
ment thathe should turn the property into
cash ns speedily as possible. hJie ap
pointed Willbini II. Harris of Arlington
as her attorney.
Baylor in securing the commit-bion to
look Into Miss Vrceland'a alleged insanity
nlso asked for itn injuncticn rcetrninins'
Bennett from disposing of the property
nnd nskR for a receiver to take charge
of tho sevcrnl properties.
In his affidavit filed yesterday Baylor
alleged that Miss Vreeland has, for n num
ber of yoars been so deprived of her reason
and understanding that sno is mentally
incapable of governing herself or of
managing her affairs nnd because of her
associations with Bennett and tho other
members of the Pontecontal cult she has
or would reduce herself to poverty nnd
might even jeopardizv and lose her life
in the proposed trip to India.
Baylor further mokes allldavit that
Nicholas Vreeland, n Jersey City lawyer
living nt lti flrnnt avenue, that city, who
is n half brother of Miss reelnnd. called
upon her nt her summer home in French
town, N. J., and usketl her why she had
doalt with her property in such a manner.
The affidavit says thut "Miss Vreeland
replied. '1 liavo given all my property
to the Lord. And you had better make
an effort to support your own family
rather than interfere with tho Lord's
will. I am going to India becauso I an
a winner of souls for the Lord.'
"Mr. Vreeland suggested to his half
sinter that she remain at home and save
souls, whereupon sho replied, 'Tho peopU
in Jersey City ure 6tiff necked like you
ond would not. accept the Lord. I am
going where the people aro like babies
und enn be more easily won. I am a
child of Jesus and live for the moment
only. 1 am under tho blood, buried in
the wound of his left side.'
"Miss Vreoland then commenced sing,
inc. 'I Am Under tho Blood of the Cruci
fied One.' Finally while singing hs
threw up her hands and raised one of
her feet and shouted out 'Ming, Boy,
Hlng.' Mr. Vreeland told mo he ileftla
