Ex-Governor Robinson at the llentl-
Miiiucsota Democrats Select
Wichita, Kns., September 9. The
Democratic and Resubmissionists State
Convention met today. Tho Resubmis
sionists compose a faction of tho Ropub
lican party wiiich oppose prohibition.
It favors high license and io striving to
obtain through tho legislature a resub
mission of the prohibitory amendment
to n vote of tho people.
To attain these ends they formed a
separate party and fused with the Dem
ocrats. Doth conventions met at tho
same hour in different Units.
Tho Democratic convention elected J.
Sheridan, of Paoln, temporary chairman
and recess was taken.
During the recess a sub-committee
conferred with ono from tho Resubmis
sionists on resolutions and reported to
tho committee on reassembling.
Tho Democrats inado their temporary
organization permanent and adopted a
platform. It declares opposition to
paternalism in tho government, both
Stato and National. Deplores tho tctul
miuv manifested bv preacher politicians
who poso as leaders of the Republi
can party in this btato to niaKo
religious belief a test of eligi
bility for political preferment. De
clares tho fedoral election bill tho legiti
mate offspring of a party which filched
tho presidency; favors a tariff based
upon public necessity; tho freo coinago
of silver and a liberal pension law. r-x
presses sympathy with labor in its
struggle with an insatiate money power
whether in the laciory or iarm ; opposes
sumptuary legislation and demands tho
early resubmission of tho prohibitory
amendment, believing that prohibition
has brought upon tho people of the
Stato incalculable ovils, and delares in
favor of high license, with local option.
Another plank aks tho people of
Kansas to repudiate Senator Ingalls, a
man who denounced reform in politics
as a dream. Ho is a demagogue who
has no place in politics, and expressed
n belief in tho uso of money and the
employment of hired hesjians in cam
The Republican resubmission conven
tion selected D. A. Bantn of Great Ucnd
temporary chairman, and the organiza
tion was "soon after made permanent.
About 300 dclesates are present.
Tho committee on Hesolutions re
ported a platform pledging loyalty to
tho principles of tho national Republl
can party, aim iuvoruig ruciprueity,
demands freo coinnire of silver; such
modifications of tho tarifT as will give
protection to agriculture and manufac
tures ; an equitablo bankrupt law and
liberal pension laws.
On the question of prohibition, the
platform says: "We arraign tho party
managers in this stato as disloyal to tho
principles, and unfaithful to the inter
ests of tho Republican party. Wochargo
that they have put the party in Kansas
out of harmony with the national
Republican party, and thereby absolved
us from all obligations to longer acknow
ledge their leadership.
"Lured bv the seductive wiles of im
practical visionaries they have com
mitted tho party to extravagances and
follies which unless promptly checked
will bankrupt and depopulate tho state.
Thesu things impel us as tho only method
which promises success, to sink party
preferences to stato politics for tho time
and unite with such of our fellow citi
zens of tho stato as sharo our convic
tions without regard to party, for tho
purpose of correcting the follies into
which wo have been betrayed and thus
prcservo tho good unmo and insure the
future prosperity of tho state.
"We are opposed to prohibition. A ten
years' trial has demonstrated its total
inefllciency as a temperance measure.
It is a revival of tho obsolete form of
paternal government and entirely
opposed to tho genius and spirit of tho
age. It is an "enemy with tho funda
mental principle of our civili
zation and destroys that inalien
able right of tho citizen to deter
mine for himself what method will pre
serve his own happiness without inter
ference with tho rights of others, which
principle is tho baso of our liberties and
tho hope of our institutions. It is un
American, un-Republican and un-Domo-cratic
and not in harmony with tho pur
poses and spirit of our institutions and
"Tho existenco of a prohibitory law is
n perpetual menace to tho material in
terests of tho Stato; it burdens us with
taxation and deprives us of all control
of tho Jiquor traffic and revenuo there
from; drivc9away population; prevents
immigration; makes building of large
cities within tho Stato impossible;
encourages perjury; makes more hypo
crites than all other agencies combined;
does not lessen crime or pauperism;
docs not empty jails, lunatic asylums or
almshouses, and belioving that any
public mensuro in tho hands of an en
lightened people is absolutely safe wo
demand that the question of repeal of
tho prohibitory amendment to tho Con
stitution bu submitted to tho people at
Ri early a date as possible"
The Resubmissionists' plan of fusion
provided for tho naming of a Governor
and Lieutenant-Governor by tho Resub
missionistH and tho remainder of the
ticket by tho Democrats. This plan is
belinr carried out and tho Resubmis
sionists adjourned, after which the
Democrats concluded tho work.
There wero two candidates for Gover
nor, Ex-Governor Robinson, a re-sub-missionist
and Ex-Governor Glick, tho

Objects to Inquiries About
Says the Committee Has No
Congressmen Lewis and Smyser
Have a Wordy War During
Washington, September 9. Deputy
Pension Commissioner Charles T. Lin
coln was today beforo the Raum inves
tigating committee. He testified that
the completed files system recommended
by Lemon did not commend itself to his
judgment. Claimants without attorneys
were placed at a disadvantage by it.
Probably less than five per cent, of tho
original claimants were without attor
neys. An attorney might secure con
siderable advantage in time of adjudica
tion by certifying that claims were com
plete when they were not so.
The witness did not think any particu
lar attorney had been benefitted by the
order. The Washington attorneys as a
whole might have been benefitted, be
cause of their location. He did not be
lieve the slightest degree of partiality or
favoritism had been shown by an officer
or employe of the Pension Bureau to
ward any nttorney. The new order was
giving more satisfaction to the country
at large than the original plan and had
considerably expedited business, al
though tome injustice was worked per
haps, toward claimants without attor
neys. II. Rossback, a mechanical engineer,
started in to tell how he met in Mem
phis several years ago Frank A. Smith,
who. he had been told, was a patentee
on tlie universal refrigerator.
Commissioner Raum objected to the
line of inquiry. Mr. Cooper insisted he
would prove by the witness that Smith
was working on the citizens of Memphis
trying to create a corporation just as
has been done here. That the citizens
of Memphis investigated and the pat
entee decamped just as he had done in
California afterwards. That he next
came to the pension office as the best
place to work and organized a schemo
with the aid of the head of the bureau
that was a fraud.
Commissioner Raum interrupted to
say Mr. Cooper took his refrigerator
charges from certain newspaper articles.
The men who wrote those articles knew
they were lies, and Mr.Cooper today knew
they were false. He had not proved his
charges and now sought to throw out a
drag-net to bring in other things to
break down the entire enterprises in
which he (Raum) was interested. He
did not propose to have his private busi
ness subjected to an investigation unless
the House decided it had jurisdiction to
Lewis argued for a full and fair inves
tigation. If the invention was imprac
ticable and worthless the country ought
to know it, because he believed an
officer of the United States should not

In answer to a question Cooper said
he did not know as he could prove that
General Raum knew the invention was
afraud. He could prove he ought to have
known it. After another discussion the
matter went over, and Smyser was re
called Cooper asked if he had not told
Lewis (a member of the Committec)that
he had no money interest in stock. Smy
ser replied that'he told Lewis that whilo
the stock was entered in his name he
did not own all of it but represented
some gentlemen in Ohio.
This brought Lewis to his feet and
there was a wordy war between himself
and Smyser for sometime. Lewis"
finally admitted he might have misun
derstood him. Adjourned.
