The platform is as follows:
The Republican party of the State of Kansas,
through Its delegates in convention assembled
renewing its faith in the perpetuity of the Gov
ernment, pledges a cordial and earnest sup
port to the principles enunciated in the plat
form at Chicago June 19, 1SS3. That platform,
after honoring the memory of the great men of
the party who have passed away, affirms an un
swerving devotion to the indissoluble union of
the States, the autonomy reserved to the Slates
under the Constitution and the personal rights
and liberties of citizens In all the States and
Territories. Demands a free ballot and u fair
count. Demands protection to the indus
tries of this country, which means good
wages to the laborer and good prices for
the producer as against Democratic free
trade, which is paupennent to the lower classes
and degradation to the producer. Denounces
the whisky trust as a menace and all great
trusts as oppressive to the people. Asserts the
rights of Territories to admission into the sis
terhood of States so soon as qualified, and de
mands that citizens of Territories thus qualified
shall not be robbed of their rights because they
are Republicans. Favors a reduction of letter
postage. Demands free schools everywhere so
that every child shall acquire a good education,
which is necessary for the preservation of free
institutions. It U in favor of Civil-Service re
form, as established by the Republican party,
and against It as debauched by the Democratic
party. Deolares that the gratitude of the
Nation to the defenders of the Union can not be
measured by laws, and favors liberal pens.'ons
in accordance with the pledges, both expressed
and implied to the soldier when he enlisted, to
the end that no Union soldier shall want for
bread, and denounces the Democratic vetoes
that send the Union soldiers to the alms house.
Expresses a cordial sympathy with all wise
and well directed efforts for the promotion of
temperance and morality.
Approving, without reserve, this clear ex
pression of Republican faith, we heartily in
dorse the nomination, by that convention, of
Benjamin Harrison, of Indiana, and Levi P.
Morton, of New York, for President and Vice
President of the United States, and we pledge
to the country our undivided support and ex
press our confident belief in their triumphant
We believe the "solid South" will be broken
and thus insure the perpetuity of the Union In
peace and prosperity. We approve and com
mend our State Administration as wise, pru
dent, economical and just. All the officers have
been faithful to their trusts and are deserving
of high commendation.
The Republican party, always full of sympa
thy for all men of all nations struggling for liber
ty, express the liveliest interest in the progress
of home rule forlreland. The blood of the Irish
American has stained every battlefield while
struggling for liberty in America, and Amer
leans can not remain long indifferent during the
struggle the Irish people are making for home
rule and justice against English tyranny.
Wo believe in the protection of the home
against the saloon. We demand the complete
execution of the prohibitory laws in every part
of the State, including the vigorous prosecu
tion of officers who fall to perform their duties
under the law, as well as the prosemtion of
violators of the law. The Republican party of
Kansas is convinced that prohibition is right
and Is a success, and we assert that those who
seek a refuge in the third or Prohibition party
blindly seek a revolution in our Government
for that which a revolution can not give.
We point with pride to the fact that the
laws of Kansas protecting the rights and in
terests of wageworkers and laborers are far in
advance of those of any other State in the
Union. We pledge a continuance of that pol
icy agaiust all encroachment. The condition
or American laborers, superior as they are to
those of Europe, must be not only protected,
but promoted and elevated. We demand
stringent laws to protect our worltingmen
against contract, pauper or Chinese emigrants
and every class who would drag down, by mere
cheapness, tho standard which American work
ingmen are struggling to maintain.
We favor American markets for American
products and American wages for the working
men of America. And we favor such additional
legislation as will secure weekly payments of
wages to employes of munic'pal and private
corporations, and also a practical apprentice
ship law, so that our handicraftsmen may have
additional protection against foreign labor.
All soalled trusts or combinations to
monopolize food supplies or control productions
are dangerous to the interests of the people,
anil should be prohibited under the severest
penalties of law. The "trust" or combination
of tho packing houses to drive out of business
all other butche rs and thus control the cattle
markets, as well as the supply and prices of
dressed meats, is especially obnoxious and
destructive to the interests of all classes of the
people, and particularly to those in the Western
The Republican party will ever retain a sense
of gratitude to those through whose valor Kan
sas and tnc Nation became free and the union
of our States preserved. We especially com
mend the a tion of our Legislature In making
provision for the maintenance of orphans of
soldiers In a soldier's home, and we heartily in
dorse the resolution adopted by the Grand
Army of the Republic at its last State encamp
ment, at Win field, on the subject of pensions,
and we pledge the Republican party of Kansas
to do all In its power to carry out the wishes of
the ex-Union soldiers, sailors and marines or
the country upon this subject as expressed
through the State and National encampments
of the Grand Army.
We request our Railroad Commissioners to
do all in their power to protect the farmers of
this State against the excessive charges lathe
removal of the vast crops which are assured to
Kansas this year.
Wc favor legislation reducing the legal rate
of Interest upon money to ix per cent., reduc
ing the maximum contract rate to ten per cent-,
prohibiting usury and providing penalties for
We rejoice in the entrance of women upon
more extended fields of usefulness, and we be
lieve that the honest demands of any class of
citizens for additional rights ought to receive
Demanding of the nominee of this convention
an honest, economical administration of the
affairs of our State, we submit all to the wise
arbitration of the ballots in November next.
The following resolutions were also
Betolied, That we renew our expressions or
confidence and high esteem for Senator John J.
Ingalls. His great speech defending the Union
soldier and the Dependent Pension bill, and
repelling the attacks made by Senators Vest,
Blackburn and Voorhees, hare imparted to
them a lesson that they will never forget, and
his arraignment of England foi her oppression
of Ireland, have placed him among the foremost
advocates cf Republican principles in the Xa-J
Eetolctd, That we express ocr highest confi
dence la Senator Preston B. Plumb as a states
man. He is unsurpassed by any other Senator of
the United States, as one familiar with all the
complicated machinery of the Government. He
is unexcelled ns a wise, prudent and patriotic
legislator for all the interests of the people.
He hag no superior. He is invaluable to Kan
sas as well as the Nation, and we believe that
his course upon public questions meets with
the unanimous approval of the Republicans in
The Nominee For Governor.
Lyman Underwood Humphrey, the Repub
lican nominee for Governor of Kansas, was born
in Stark County, O., July 25, 1344, and is there
for forty-four years of age. At the outbreak of
the war in 1851 Mr. Humphrey was attending
the high school at Masslllon, and at the age of
seventeen years he enlisted in Company I,
Seventy-sixth Ohio Infantry, a regiment famous
for its bravery and for the eminent men who
belonged to it. While yet in his teens he was
promoted to First Lieutenant, served as adju
tant of his regiment, and for a year before he
was old enough to vote commanded a com
pany. He participated in the battles of
Donelson, Pittsburgh Landing, Corinth, the
siege of Vlcksburg, Chattanooga. Atlanta
and the campaign around that city, being
under fire five or six weeks in that campaign.
He was with Sherman in his march to the sea,
and was at the capture of Savannah. He was
with the regiment in the campaign through the
Carolinas, and took part in the battle of Benton
ville, as well as in the capture of General John
stone's army. During the four years of service
he was never absent a day from his duty. He
not only figured in the bullet department, but
learned what it was to be struck with rebel
shot, being twice wounded, once at Pittsburg
Landing and again at Chattanooga. The regi
ment belonged to the 1st Brigade, 1st Division,
13lh Corps, Army of the Tennessee.
At the termination of the war Captain Hum
phrey entered Mount Union College, and soon
afterwards began a law course in the Michigan
University. He was admitted to practice Id
the several courts of Ohio in 186S, and then re
moved to Shelby County. Mo., and assisted in
the editorial work on the Shelby County Herald.
He shortly afterward came to Kansas, locating
at Independence, Montgomery County, in
1871, and forming a law partnership with Hon.
A. 1L York. The Independence Tribune was
founded by Messrs. A. M. York, A. T. Yoe and
L. U. Humphrey, a relation sustained by the
latter one year. The law partnership con
tinued until 1876, since which lime
Mr. Humphrey has continued the
practice alone. In 1871 he was nominated ss a
Republican candidate for a seat in the State
Legislature, but because of his vigorous oppo
sition to the issuance of questionable bonds tc
the Leavenworth, Lawrence & Galveston Rail
road Company, he was defeated by a small vote.
In 18.6, however, he was vindicated by an
election to tho House from a district formerly
Democratic, and served two years as a member
of the Republican State Central Committee.
In 1837 he was chosen to fill a vacancy in the
office of Lieutenant-Governor, and the follow
ing year was re-elected by a popular majority
In 1854 he was re-elected State Senator,
which position he still'holds.
RUFFIAN WHITE CAPS.
They Get What They Deserve After Whip
ping Two Women.
New Albany, Ind., Jul 26. A middle
aged woman named Wiseman and her
nineteen-year-old daughter live in "the
neighborhood of Carnes Mills, Crawford
County, and incurred the displeasure of
the "White Caps," who charged that the
women were unchaste. On the night of
July 23 about twenty-five well mounted
armed "White Caps" rode up
the Wiseman house, took
mother and daughter out of
tied them to trees near by, and
whipped them unmercifully upon the bare
back with hickory switches. The blood
followed each blow. Their shrieks and
cries for mercy were disregarded, and the
blows continued until both fell fainting on
the ropes that held them. They were then
cut loose. The "White Caps" remounted
their horses, and after a brief consultation,
overheard by three men in a house near
by, rode away.
The "White Caps" had agreed in their
consultation to ride to the house of Leslie
Moreland, a reputable citizen of the neigh
borhood, tell him what they had done and
why, and order him to spread the news,
this being their custom. Tho three men
who overheard this arrangemont were
relatives of Moreland and, taking their
guns, they took a short cut to Moreland's.
They told Moreland of what they had
heard and secreted themselves in a thicket
almost in front of Moreland's house.
Tho "White Caps" soon appeared and
called Moreland out. He came to the door
with his rifle. They told their errand and
ordered him to start out at daylight and
spread the news. Moreland refused,
whereupon the "White Caps" threatened
to call again and hang him, and then be
gan firing revolvers at the house. More
land replied with his rifle, and at the same
moment the three men in ambush fired
upon the gang. At this the "White Caps"
galloped away, one of them, John
Saunders, leaving a bloody hat on the
highway and two others, being supported
in their flight by their companions.
Three of them had been shot, two of
them, John Saunders and Pryor Gregory,
supposed fatally. The name of the other
victim was not learned. Gregory is a well
known country merchant at West Fork
post-office, Crawford County, has a family
of grown children and is about fifty years
of age. It is said he will die. He is in
good circumstances and has been highly
respected. Saunders is a saloonkeeper
and a worthless fellow.
The elder Wiseman woman, it is re
ported, will die from the whipping she
THE IOWA ROADS.
Judge Brewer Enjoins the Iowa Railroad
Leavenworth, Kan., July 26. Judge
Brewer to-day recorded his decision in the
famous case of the corporation railroads
against the Iowa Railroad Commissioners,
ordering a temporary injunction against
their schedule of rates.
The first question considered was whether
a suit against the Railroad Commissioners
to enjoin them from putting in force a
schedule of rates was a suit against the
State within the purview of th
Eleventh amendment and, therefore,
one of which the Federal court could
not take jurisdiction. As only railroad
companies and shippers are directly inter
ested in the case the Judge held that the
Federal court had full jurisdiction.
The power of fixing rates was a legisla
tive one, but there is no inherent wrong in
the Legislature delegating this power to
the Commission, the main question being
the fairness and justice of the rates, not
what body fixed them. The question of
the constitutionality of the Commission
was one for tho Supreme Court of tho
The third principal question was whether
the Legislature had unlimited power in the
matter of fixing rates either by its own
action or through the agency of a railroad
commission, ana this the Judge denied.
He held that the Legislature has no right
or power to fix rates so low as not to fur
nish some compensation to the railroad
companies, and compensation to the own
ers implies revenues sufficient to meetr
First, the cost of service; second, the fixed
charges-by way of interest; third, some
thing, however small, in the way of divi
dend. He further holds that while from the
volume of the testimony offered upon this
application it is not clearly established
that the schedule prepared by the Com
mission will fail of producing compensa
tion yet there is a probability that it will
and therefore a primary injunction is ap
propriate until there can be a full and final
The railroad companies ore greatly
pleased. They declare that the loss
of. half a million dollars a day hung
upon this decision- The opinion is of great
length going into the subject in dsiiil to
the extent of .7,500 words.
the Republican Senators Hold a Confer
ence on the Turin A Bill to he Presented
and Its Passage Pressed.
Washington, July 26. A tariff confer
ence of the Republican Senators was held
at Senator Evarts' residence last night, at
which a decision was reached that the Fi
nance Committee should prepare a Tariff
bill as a substitute to the Mills bill and
that it should then be reported to the Sen
ate and taken up and passed regardless of
the length of time this might require.
Various propositions looking to an early
adjournment and a postponement of tho
tariff battle until December were sug
gested, but the arguments advanced by
the advocates of the policy of passing a
bill and making the direct issue as early
as possible were so strong that the
assemblage became emphatically unani
mous in favor of the course finally
adopted. It was urged that the Democratio
House had taken its time and consumed
many months in framing and debating the
measure it had put forth and that the Re
publican Senate would not be curtailed of
its full liberty of action on a question
which so vitally affected the interests of
the country and of the Republican party.
The Finance Committee was instructed
to continue its work and bring it to a con
clusion as speedily as it could consistently
with a careful performance of the task al
lotted to it.
The bill will be an outgrowth of that al
readv sketched by the sub-committee,
but the views expressed by Senators
and approved by a majority of the Senate
will doubtless lead to some modifications
and changes of detail. The net reduction
of revenue to be attained will probably bo
between $65,000,000 and $80,000,000. "tho
conference adjourned at midnight.
No one, not even members of theFinanco
Committee, ventures to guess now at the
length ct the session. Among those who
advocated the postponement of the tariff
question until the next session was Sena
tor Quay. He said, however, that it was
for the doubtful States to decide what
should be done in the matter. It is, there
fore, evident that those States which aro
regarded as pivotal in the next election
favored the course decided upon last
The Republican members of the sub
Finance Committee of the Senate have
been very busy conferring with party
leaders in regard to tariff action. There
was a strong influence exerted to prevent
the Senate from taking any positive action
on the tariff. It came largely from Re
publican leaders of the House, but was
supported by some of the Senators. Dur
ing the entire day Republican Senators
were earnestly talking, sometimes in pairs
and sometimes in groups. Little knots
would gather in the cloak rooms and cor
ridors, and the earnestness of their
manner made it manifest that soma
important subject was on hand.
One Republican member of the Finance
Committee said that the Tariff bill was
not complete, but that many of its main
provisions were determined, and that be
fore determining others some of the Sena
tors would have to be consulted. He re
marked that the plan was to get the bill
completed and tagreed upon by Republic
ans before reporting it. The Republicans
are very reticent in regard to their plans.
They do not want any of the provisions of
their bill to be made public in advance of
its being reported, but enough can be
learned to show that they can not say
themselves just what may be done.
THE BROTHERHOOD FIGHT.
The I'ositlon of the Burlington Strikers In
dorsed A Federation to be Formed.
St. Joseph, Mo., July 2C The joint
meeting of the Brotherhoods met at two
o'clock yesterday afternoon and concluded
its deliberations, adjourning at five o'clock.
It transpires now that the business of this
meeting had very little relevancyto a set
tlement of the Burlington difficulties, but,
on the contrary, was held for the purpose
of making war to the knife on the railroad
system. XV. M. Arnier, chairman of Di
vision No. 10, Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, offered the, following, which
was unanimously adopted:
Etorl, That the meeting heartily indorses
the action taken by the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy men in refusing to declare the strike off
on the con 'itions offered.
The conditions referred to above are
those which are now being circulated
among the members of the Brothorhood
by Hoge and Murphy, and which are, in
the main, as follows: That no men shall
be blacklisted; that the company shall
take back such men and as many as it
may elect. That for the next two years
the company shall employ the late strikers
in preference to other men, and that it
shall give letters of recommendation to
such men as it can not give employment.
The Brotherhoods construe this proposi
tion as meaning that the company can
stop after taking back one or a dozen men
and that the great mass of the strikers will
not be benefited in the least by the accept
ance of such a proposition.
It was unanimously resolved by th"e
meeting that company be compelled to
take back all of the men who went out on
the strike or none. This means that the
situation to-day is exactly as it was
One of the objects of this meeting was to
arrange matters financial pertaining to
the strike. It has been claimed by many
that the Brotherhood treasury was de
pleted, and that the Eastern men were in
favor of declaring the strike off in order
that the assessments for the support of the
strikers might be discontinued. It was
stated positively by the press committee of
the Brotherhood that the Eastern men are
heartily in favor of the continuance of the
strike, and sufficient finances were ar
ranged for to carry the strikers until such
time when the four organizations will be
The federation plan was indorsed by the
meeting, and it is quite certain that in less
than four months the scheme will be in
force. Each of the four Brotherhoods will
hold conventions as follows: Brotherhood
of Engineers, at Richmond, Va., in Octo
ber; Brotherhood of Firomen, at At
lanta, Ga., in September; the Switchmen,
at St. Louis in September; Brotherhood
of Brakemen, at Columbus, O., in Octo
ber. The first convention will adopt a
federation clause in its constitution which
will be accepted by the other conventions.
Anderson .Still In the Well.
Johnstown, Neb., July 20. At six o'clock
yesterday morning John Anderson was
still a prisoner in the well. Tuesday night
he had a chill, but by rubbinghis limbs and
getting the circulation started he soon
rallied. The new well is down fifty feet and
diggers are now at work tunneling to the
old well. The great danger will be that
when they strike the old well it may
give way and let sand in and smother him
instantly. He asked about his stock and
wanted to know who was attending to
them. When asked if he would like for
them to put a pipe to him in the old well
for conveying food and water to him, he
said it was too risky and was unwilling to
take such chances for a few luxuries.
Washington, July 25. The only Sena

BARGAINING IN COREA.
Sb or the Peculiarities of Native Mer
chants and Go-Betweens.
Every official's house is situated in
a compound which has its -'Ta Moun,"
or great gate, -which is tended by a
special servant kept for that purpose.
The foreign settlement is near one of
the three south gates of the city and a
moment's walk brings you to the top
of the wall, from which there is al
ways a broad view. Having always
spoken of the "mounjigi," or gateman,
I must give an account of the other
servants. The highest grade is the
'-kuiso.'- He is a little too high and
mighty to work and a little too low in
caste to become an official. He is, in
fact, a sort of military servant or es
cort. Whenever you go out into the
street he runs before you and cries,
"Get out of the way for this great
man," and those who do not obey
promptly are unceremoniously pushed
aside. He acts as errand boy as well.
All notes are carried by him and pur
chases are largely made through him.
He never steps inside the door of the
house. "When a man comes to
cell you any goods of any kind
he states to the kuiso what he
has to sell. The kuiso comes and
tells you, and if you want to see the
article the man is admitted into the
yard and comes and spreads his goods
out before you on the piazza or on the
floor. You ask him the price and he
names ten times what he is willing to
part with it for. You tell him it is
too much and name about one-fourth
what he has asked, wondering at your
own temeritj. He folds up the stuff,
gives you a glance half of injured in
nocence and half of contempt, and
marches off, but in a few moments
sends the kuiso back to tell you that
he will split the difference, but he
will hope that you are too wise to do
so. Finally he sends iii the goods and
accepts your offer. He carries the
money down to the big gate and
your servants gather about him, and
first he gives the kuiso one-tenth of
the whole amount, then divides two
more tenths among the other servants,
and, after giving a little more to any
other chance witnesses he goes off
with approximately the proper sum,
the sum you ought to have given. Of
course the kuiso is always wanting
you to buy, for it simply increases
the "emoluments of office." Cor. San
The Trouble Kxperlenced With Foreigners
at Castle Garden.
Sometimes, but not very frequently,
the registrars at Castle Garden eret
rc6mpletely bowled out as to the spell
ing of an immigrant's name. Most of
them are as thoroughly conversant
w-lth all the modern languages as if
they had been reared "in the tower of
Babel, and when a man replies that
his name is "Smi ," the registrar
takes one glance at his face and attire,
and has the name written correctly as
to the minutest variation of nationali
ty in spelling, commencing with "Sch"
and ending with "dt" or "ze," or plain
"Smith," almost before the last sound
has emanated from the owner's mouth.
But a day recently was one for jaw
breakers. The steamship Eider had
brought over a peculiar collection of
Sclavonians and Czechs and Russian
Poles whose autographs the registrars
knew not. They stumbled along suc
cessfully with Sachariasen, Walinto
nowitz, Tarczenska and such like, un
til a massive Russian from the out
skirts of the empire somewhere within
sight of the Chinese wall, advanced in
solemn stateliness and from behind
and beneath a beard thicker than a
Circassian woman's hair, uttered a
sound that resembled a prolonged and
The registrar tried him again, but
after several repetitions acknowledged
himself beaten and passed him around
to another official linguist. It was
useless. The foreigner with the sneez
ish name was taken into the office un
til more time was available to unravel
his mystery, when, with combined ef
forts for he himself could not write
the name was discovered to be this:
He had friends here and consider
able money, and was not detained.

The Pool of Bethesda.
The pool of Bethesda has beep sat
isfactorily identified at Jerusalem, act
cording to the chairman of the Pales
tine Exploration Fund. All early au
thorities agree in representing this
pool as being near the Church of St.
Anne, but nothing was known of the
pool in later years till some Algerian
monks recently unearthed a large tank
in the rock under the church, reached
by a flight of twenty-four steps. How
ever, the pool being invariably de
scribed as having five porches, this
tank did not quite correspond to the
Bethesda Pool until now, when Herr
Conrad Schick has found a twin pool
side by side with the first discovery.
These sister pools, therefore, could
easily have had a porch on each of the
four sides, with a fifth on the wall sep
arating the tanks, and this link is con
sidered to complete the identification.
Among other traditions, the old writers
describe this Piscina Probatica as the
birthplace of the Virgin Alary. N. T.
