State Commltt'-o. St. Louis.
Any able-bodied railroad man who desires
n bargain should call upon Mr. Flory nnd
inspect his machine. If the foregoing adver
tisement Is not inserted in a newspaper it is
because the Republican State Committee
has forbidden it. The quadrleyele has been
nla,-eil mi tbe shelf bv the nmbi-.lous Mr.
I V!rt-i- ...,.1 1 lt. , .!.. U. ltnw Sllliwtltuted
the varnished cars.
The quadiicyele was the cause of so much
adverse comment that leaders in tl.e Repub
lican party virtually pulled Mr. Flary off his
wheel, and now It is resting and i listing In
the Terminal Station, while the busy spider
spins fantastic webs within its steel spokes.
Some time ago Mr. Flory decided upon hH
unique campaign. He was going over tho
State on a railroad quad. He was going to
keep hot the air along the railroads in tho
State. He had arranged for his campaign
an itinerary that would have taken him over
several thousand miles of track and sub
jected the people to about a thousand repe
titions of the same speech he starttd with in
St. Louis last month.
The scheme had hardly been thoroughly
understood when protests were filed with
the Republican State Committee that Flory
was making an egregious blunder; that it
wus more of a vaudeville entertainment for
the farmers of the State than a sincere ef
fort to make a political campaign.
Tedinua Task: Proves 1'rultle.
Colonel Flory came down to St. Iouis, got
out his machine and oiled it up. Tho ball
bearings received a double brush of plum
bago and fresh air was injected into the
the. The Colonel started out with a lunch
basket and a couple of cold bottles on the
front of the handle bar. He sttered the
machine and pedaled down to Carondelet
one bright morning about a month ago. He
got off at divers and sundry points and re
stocked his larder. Incidentally shaking
hands with several pedestrians.
The Colonel was disgusted with the first
dav's run. He returned to Union Station,
tired In limb and dejected In spirits. There
had been no brass band accompaniment, and
when he explained to a qualified voter that
he was- a candidate for Governor, riding over
the State on a quad in search of votes, he
got what would be called, in the vernacular
of the street, a "horse laugh." At first it
was difficult to understand why his cam
miirn was not taken seriously, but after he
i thought a while it began to dawn upon him
that perhaps some persons nau conciuueu
that a gubernatorial candidate had better
stick to beaten paths.
The Colonel finally decided to give the
thing another whirl. He went clear down to
Carondelet. He met a few more trump? and
several voters who happened to be going to
woik by a short cut.
Committee Grew Wourj-.
The Colonel again attempted tc explain
who lie was and what he was doing, but the
result was the same as on the day before.
His explanations wero received with cre
dulltv. The Colonel turned his steed home
ward" that day. He rode into Union Station
tiled out. He probably said harsh things In
wardly as he rolled the s-ixty-poi:nd quad
into its resting place. At least he had an
elegant opportunity to do so.
Since that memorable day Mr. flory has
traveled some over the State. He h.s recited
his et speech on several differtnt occasions
at several diffeicnt points. Ho has gone into
the suburbs, but he has not gone on his
four-wheeled machine. It still tests quietly
In the station, while Mr. Flory is filing back
and torth on a Pullman sleeper.
The Republican State Committee is breath
ing easier. It has taken a ftesh reach on
hope. It is not considering the quadrleyele
nt anv length. The machine in Union Sta
tion may rest and rust so far as the State
Committee Is concerned. It Is satisfied II
no more quadricycles were manufactured.

thrown to the breeze, "it probably will be
found on close inspection uiui m uiuti

train can cany the gubernatorial eindldate.
TEXXESSEK SENATORIAL RACE.
ConRrennmnn Cnrninelf Seem" "to Have
AdimitiiKe Over Jmlec SnodjjraMii.
Nashville. Tenn., Aug. 5 Tennessee's
Vnited States senatorial race, which has
been on in full blast with the oratorical fea
tures for the past two months, is about to
come to a sudden close. A couple 3f weeks
ago Governor Benton McMlllIn dropped out
of the race for the sake of harmony in the
State, leaving the contest to Congressman
Carmack from the Tenth District and Chief
Justice Snodgrass of the Supreme Court.
The best part of llcJllllln's strength went
to Carmack. , ,
Up to date Judge Snodgrass, who Is a
Democrat, but running on an expansion
platform and telling the peoplo to vote for
iiryan, has not received a single Instructed
vote. At the Carmack headquarters to-day
the following statement was given out by
one of the campaign managers:
"We calculate that it will take about fifty
votes to control the next senatorial caucus,
though forty-five was enough when Thomas
B. lurley was nominated. Mr. Carmack
now has forty-three pledged and instructed
votes, thirty-live ot them being Instructed.
We will certainly get ten more votts, which
have already ordered nomination.! during
the present month. By the first of Septem
ber Mr. Carmack will have about fifty
three votes, or easily enough to make his
calling and election sure, even if no other
nominations are ordered for the rjonth ot
August. In addition to this there will still
be eight members of the Legislature from
West Tennessee, four of them from Mr.
Carmack's congressional district, all of
whom will be for Carmack without any op
position whatever. There are a number of
Middle Tennessee counties also in which
he has had no opposition, as in Maury and
Lawrence, which are yet to fix the time for
nominating their candidates. We confident
ly expect that Mr. Carmack will have sev
enty votes before the month of September
has passed away. There are about twenty
votes, including Davidson County (Nash
ville), that are to be instructed on the day
ot the November election. We have no
doubt but that we shall receive every one
of them in fact, vie believe that Mr. Car
mack will have practically the solid vote of
the Democrats in the next Democratic cau
cus." There have been rumors of a withdrawal
on the part of Judge Snodgrass, bu- he says
he will stay in the race until the end. Tho
friends of the Chief Justice will make a
fight for a general United States senatorial
primary over the State betore the meeting
of the Tennessee Democratic Executive
Committee In this city next Saturday. The
Carmack people claim that the committee
has no right to order a primary of this
character. They oppose on the ground that
they have won their fight and it would be a
hardship to be forced to fight a second bat
tle. Snodgrass did not mention the sena
torial primary until a week or so ago, and
for this reason it is believed that a majority
of the members will look upon the proposi
tion with dibfavor.
Stronc l)rnn Club at Pnxico, Mo.
Puxico, Mo., Aug. 5. The Democrats of
this (Duck Creek) township met at this
place last night and organized a W J.
Bryan club by electing Doctor W. F. Col
lier president, G. R. Bennefleld vice presi

Dammeron assistant secretary. One1 hun

more than as many more are yet to enlist.
After the organization was perfected, H. L.
B. Mason of Illinois was Introduced and
spoke at length on the issues of the day.
This is the first Democratic organization
perfected in this (Stoddard) county. There
are no Gold Democrats in this section.
There is enthusiasm, on every hand for tho

Sergeants and r.'ilrolmen of the
Sevenih and Ninth Districts
SHAKE-UP ABOUT COMPLETED.
Shifting of Men, Chief Campbell
Declared, Was Done for Good
of the Service Hope to
Chief Campbell has completed the "slnke
ttp" of the Police Department by issuing an
order yesterday by which the Sergeants
and patrolmen of the Seventh and Ninth
districts will change dletricts. nt least tem
porarily. This order went Into effect at
roll call. II a. m. yesterday, and it Is be
lieved that with this reassignment of tho
men the wholesale changes in the depart
ment are at an end.
The Seventh District is under the com
mand of Captain Creecy. and the Ninth un
der the command of Captain Gaffney. As
soon us tho orders weie received by them
early yesterday morning they were trans
mitted to tho patrolmen at roll call, and
within an hour the officers of the day
platoons in each district hud reported in
their new districts for duty.
The rearrangement was accepted by tho
men with Httlo comment and less grum
bling, as the patrolmen, while ignorant of
the causes which prompted the shifting ot
berths, believed that the change is only temporal-.
As in tho case of the Fifth. Sixth,
Second and Third districts, the Captains,
Lieutenants and clerical forces of the Sev
enth and Ninth districts will not be affected
by the change.
Chief of Police Compbell, who is responsi
ble for tho present rearrangement, declines
to say officially whether the transfers will
be made permanent.
"The only thing I can say," he said yes
terday, "is that the rearrangement has been
rineieu soteiy wltn a view to bettering tile
work of the department, and to further
safeguarding the welfare of the public. In
a measure, the conditions growing out of
the strike have contributed mainly to this
move. Dynamiting has been annoyingly fre
quent on certain divisions of the transit
system, especially in North and South St.
Louis. It is not my province nor purpose
to say who is directly or indirectly re
sponsible for these outrages. I only know
that they have occurred, and as the petpe
trators have managed thus far to escape
arrest or detection, I believe that a shifting
of the patrolmen of the police districts in
which the dynamitards have been operating
might have some beneficial effect. Tho
men engaged In these outrages, I figured,
know the ways and h.ibits of the uniformed
patrolmen and special olhcers in their dis
tricts, and it is an easy matter for them to
do the work and evade the officers with im
punity. By Introducing strange men in'o
these districts, with whose laces and habits
the djnamitards are unfamiliar, we will be
able to at least prevent the offenders fjom
operating so boldly, if we are unable to
catch them in the act. It is with this ob
ject in view that the shifting of men has
betn done. The transfers must not be con
strued in any sense as a reflection upon the
efficiency or Integrity of the patrolmen or
their superior officers."

Court's Ruling in a Uig Estate
Leavenworth, Kas., Aug. 5. Judge Hook
of the United States District Court has
ruled against the claimants to 160 acres of
land comprising the principal business por
tion and 200 home sites, besides valuable
railway yards. In the city of Argentine,
Kas., a suburb of Kansas City.
Suit to reclaim the property was brought
In 1S93, in tho name of William J. Isaacs, an
Indian, who claimed to be an heir of Nancy
Whltefeather and Elizabeth Longtail, the
original allottees of the tract. Isaacs pro
duced a deed purporting to have been exe
cuted for the consideration of J1.000, nnd his
attorneys succeeded in having the Commis
sioner of Indian Affairs of the Department
of the Interior approve the instrument. His
attorneys began suits of eviction. The in
terested citizens of Argentine engaged at
torneys, who claimed that the Interior De
partment's approval of the deed had been
secured under a misapprehension and began
suit in the name of the United States
against Isaacs nnd his attorneys, asking
that the approval be set aside.
Judge Hook decided the case on a prece
dent laid down recently by the United
States Supreme Court, to the effect that
when approvals of Indian deeds were mado
by the head of a department under a mis
apprehension or misstatement, even from
one of his subordinate officers', the approval
should be set aside.

London Firm During the Week
London, Aug. C The tone of the Stock
Exchange last week was remarkably firm,
considering the small amount of business
done and the dearness of money. The as
s : -ination of King Humbert, the attack
upn the Shah of Persia, the death of the
Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. and the.
issue of exchequer bonds were Jll adverse
factors, but they were probably counter
balanced by the encouraging news from
China and by the belief that the end of the
war in South Africa is at last in sight.
Americans were the strongest feature of
the market; but the only change of impor
tance was in Union Pacific Railway shares,
which rose 2 points. Other American se
curities went up only fractionally or showed

dication of Improvement, Rands having

so inactive that brokers actually discusse-j

The continued failure of the commanders

Another depressing factor was the re
newed evidence of weakness In the iron sit
uation. On the Iron Bourso at Dusseldorf
bar Iron was quoted 10m lower, and there
were reductions for other brands. Two
thonsand tons of Alabama iron were sold at
the Sllesian works at 52 marks, to be de
livered in Hamburg in November. The sale
was much commented Upon, causing lower
prices. Sllesian establishments report poor
business in piping sheets, as the result of
American competition. The wire mills there
have restricted their output and pig iron
stocks show an additional Increase.
In the money market there was little
business last week, but rates were some
what changeable. Private discount reached
4i per cent yeFterday upon heavy offerings

foreign exchange rates remain unfavor

FOR A GIRL'S HAND.
Two Rivals Will Strive to Carry
Township for Their Candidates.
Topeka, Kas., Aug. 5. Dudley Township,
Haskell County, easily takes first premium
on freak marriage contracts. On the result
of tho election In that township this year
hangs the fate of James Bradley and Wil
lis Wilkinson, two suitors for tho hand nnd
heart of Mis3 Mary Klncaid. A letter
from that county to-day says Miss Klncaid
will marry the young man who carries that
township for his candidate for President,
nnd the defeated suitor Is to act as best
man at the wedding on November 7.
In 1896, tho only township in the United
States carried by Palmer and Buckner, Gold
Democratic nominees for President and
Vice President, was Dudley Township, Has
kell County. Six votes were cast In the
township at the election. Palmer and Buck
ner receiving 3, McKinley and Hobart 2, and
Bryan and Sewell 1.
When Colonel Buckner heard of It, he pro
ceeded to show his appreciation by senulng
a two-gallon demijohn full of Kentucky
bourbon and a ta bill to the people of th.u
township, with the Injunction that they as
semble In a convenient place and eat, drink
and be merry. They met in the schooIhou.se
and all had a good time.
There is no Gold Democratic ticket in the
field. One, and probably two, of the Palmer
and Buckner voters are counted for Bryan,
the other for McKlnley. Bradley i3 a Re
publican nnd Wilkinson Is a Democrat. Two
new voters moved Into the township, but
their politics are unknown.
