Humors of a Combine.
The Capital hears rumors that the
Democrats, third-party Prohibitionists
and various labor paities in Kansas
threaten to enter into a coalition or
combination whereby but one State
ticket in opposition to the Republican
ticket will be in the field in November.
Just how this combine is to be brought
about or who of the already nominated
lambs are to be lead to the slaughter,
we have not been informed.
Certain Democratic statesmen about
Topeka look wise and give it out that
Rev. Botkin, recently nominated by
the third-party Prohibitionists for gov
ernor, will be hauled off the ticket by
the M. E. church on the ground that
regularly stationed ministers will not
be permitted to mix politics and re
ligion to the extent of running for office,
and this would seem to be good logic,
particularly in the case of Brother Bot
kin who, while earnest and consistent,
is really used as an annex to the Dem
ocratic party, since every vote cast for
him is half a vote for the whisky Dem
ocracy, and a vote against the Republi
can party which espouses prohibition
and which has freed Kansas from the
curse of the grogshop.
With Brother Botkin out of the way
an effort will be made to concentrate
all opposition to the Republican ticket
on Judge Martin for governor, and
some of the overzealous fellows believe
he can be elected.
Imagine if you will the three thou
sand straight-laced Third party advo
cates hanging to the skirts of Judge
Martin, who declared in his speech at

that "he was and always had been op

Brethren, this would be a spectacle

The Capital hopes such an alliance

to see L. U. Humphrey slaughter the

will take 75,000 Republican majority
in Kansas this fall to convince a few
people that this is a Republican year.

The President's Attack on Women.
The President has had many things
happen in the course of his term at the
Wnite House that have provoked severe
criticism and though as the New Yoik
Tribune says: With the President's
private life the public has nothing to do.
his official manners are a subject of le
gitimate criticism, like any other deta.l
of his official conduct. The debate in
the Senate the other day upon the pen
sion vetoes revealed him as a President
who does not hesitate in the eager pur
suit of cheap popularity to indulge in
mean attacks upon the characters of
poor and friendless women. This is
not a large busiuess for the President
of the United States to be engaged in.
The latest instance is that of Mrs.
Dougherty. This woman, while work
ing in an arsenal making cartridges,
suffered a severe accident; she lost her
son; she became partially insane, if not
wholly so. The Pension Bureau re
jected her claim, as it often must do in
really deserving cases, but the Pension
committees of both houses of Congress,
one Democratic anfl the other Republi
can, decided that, to use Senator Haw
ley's words, it would be "wise and
generous" to give her a pension. The
President vetoed the bill, alleging that
the woman was "of every bad character,
and had been under arrest nine times
for drunkenness, larceny, creating dis
turbance and misdemeanors of that
sort." The language leaves the im
pression that the woman is now a no
toriously bad character, The fact is,
as Senator Davis, of Minnesota, showed,
that all these accusations relate to a
period prior to 1872. She was arrested
bef are that date seven times, the other
two cases being of another person en
tirely. From 1S72 to 18SS her conduct
had been proper. Yet. as the Senator
says, "the Piesident has gone back
fifteen jears to investigate the char c
trr of this poor, old, decrepit, half
crazed womau for the purpose of put
ting an imputation upon her, and
thereby justify the veto." Senator
D.ivis also stated that on the day of the
veto a report as to this woman had
been withdrawn from the Pension
Bureau's files, and delivered to the
chief of the Washington police, which
had not been returned, nere, then, we
have the Presidentof the Unittl States,
after two congressional committees and
the two houses of Congress have decided
that this woman shall have a pensioii
of a few dollars a month, hunting
through the police-court archives oJ
Washington to discover whethpr at a
time when she was probably half-crazed
by disease and grief she had been locked
up a few times. What if she had been r

that all he has to do to make a pensioii
seem improper is to affix a personal
stigma upon the applicant is entirelj
Another case of the same kind,
which was indignantly recalled in this
debate, was that of Harriet Welch
Her husband had been pensioned for a
gunshot wound in the leg, aud, apply
ing for increased pension, was directed
to appear at Green Bay, Wis., foi
examination. Returning home on tin
cars he fell between them, owing as ii
was believed, to the weakness of his
leg, and was killed. Congress awarded
her a pension, which the President
vetoed, embodying this contemptibh
slur in the message:
Though this widow admits that prioi

dier she had married another mai
whom sLe could only say she believed
to be dead,! believe her case to be :
Seven children had been the fruit of
the marriage with the soldier, upoi
which the President chose to cast this
utterly needless reflection. The Sen
ate Committee say "there is nothing in
the evidence to justify it." But hi
seems to be given to sweeping rellec
tions of this nature. After enumer
ating the alleged dark spots in Mrs
Dougherty's record, he could not staj
his hand from saying:
But there is much reason to fear thai
this case will find its parallel in mam

widows and their friends. Really3 we
think, with Senator Blair, that if Mr.

not to say like a President."

conferred upon him by the Indian
apolis convention and formally accepts
the nomination. It then proceeds as fol
lows: What law creates, law alone can kill.
The creature of" law, the saloon, the liquor
truffle, can die only at the law's hands, or at the
law's executor. Conceived in avaricious In
iquity, born of sinful legislative wedlock, the li
cense saloon,the legalized liquor traffic, bastard
child of a civilization must go forever branded
with the scarlet letter of its own shame.
It is.not enough that we reform the individual;
we must reform the State: The policy of great
commonwealths of a whole people must be re
made and put in harmony with economic prin
ciples, the true co-operation of industrial effort,
the essential conditions of a National prosperi
ty, and genuine brotherhood of man. So broad
a demand as thi-. can bo met in but one way.
It has been well said: "A political reform can
become a fact in Government throun a politi
cal party that administers Government."
A reform so vast as this we advocate, involv
ing such radical changes in State and National
policy, is utterly dependent for its agitation
and consummation upon some party, agent or
force. The National Democratic party in its
platform utters no word in condemnation of the
greatest foe to the Republic, the liquor traffic
That party having steadfastly in its utterances
at National conventions maintained its aUiance
to the American saloon it was no disappoint
ment to any one that at St. Louis in 1838 it re
affirmed its old position on this, the greatest
question now being debated among men. It
was with great reluctance that I accepted
these conclusions and. came to admit the im
perative need of a new party, while yet
the'party of my choice, the National Republican
party, maintained its organization. It cost me
the sacrifice of cherished associations, when
four years ago I enrolled myself in the ranks of
party Prohibitionists, under the flag of Prohibi
tion, bleached snowy white by the tears of sm t
ten women and children through generations of
sorrow and want. I have seen no hour of re
gret. Every day since then has shownyet more
clearly the logic of my course and the in
evita le truth of my conclusions. In Michi
gan, in Texas, in Tennessee and Oregon
so-called non-partisan efforts to establish
Prohibition have failed, through parti
san necessity, born of liquor elements
in old party composition. In Iowa, Rhode Is
land and Maine the laws are shamelessly defied
for like teason. The entire trend of things
these 1 st four years has proven hopeless the
broader range of Prohibitionjcffect through non
partisan means and others equally futile and as
a final consummation the narrow methods of
local option and high license, while from the
Supreme Court itself has come with startling
emphasis a declaration so nationalizing this re
form that it can never be made of local or State
The first concern of good government, said
the recent Republican National convention at
Chicago, is the virtue and sobriety of the peo
ple and the purity of the home. Revenue, then,
is not the Government's chief concern, whether
coming from internal taxation or from a tariff
on importations; and any source of revenue
which discounts "the virtue and sobriety of the
people" and begets impurity In the home
should be the first object assailed by every par
ly professing to seek good government; while
the, revenue derived from such a source
should be the first to be foresworn not alter
nately, for th e sake of a protective tariff, but
positively for the sake of protection dearer and
more vital than the tariff can ever yield. Had
I not left the Republican party four years ago,
I should be compelled to leave it now, when,
after reading the words I have quoted, from a
resolution s jpplemeutal to but not included in
its platform, and finding in these words my
own idea of government's "chief concern" set
forth, I search the long platform through
in vain to find condemnation of the
saloon, or hint of purpose to assaU it, or any
sign of moral conscious that the saloon is
a curse and its income too unholy for the Nation
to shaie. If the "chief concern" has not a place
in a party's platform and a party has no policy
as to that "chief concern" that party does not
desen e the support of men who love good gov
ernment and would see it maintained.
The Prohibition party's "chief concern" Is
for the purity of the home and the virtue of
sobriety of a people. That party is not labor's
truest friend which would bar the importation
of pauperism from abroad, or closed the tariff
door of competition to pauperism industry, and
then by a liquor system pernetuate the manu
facture of paupers and criminals in our midst,
with whom honest labor mnst compete, and
whom largely honest labor must support.
The letter closes with a review of the
principles of Prohibition.
DR. BROOKS' ACCEPTANCE.
Chicago, Aug. 6 The letter of Dr. John
At Brooks accepting the Vice-Presidential
nomination op the Prohibition ticket was
made public to-day. After acknowledg
ing the honor conferred upon him he de
nounced In the strongest teVms monopo
lies and trusts .which, he says, are Against
a wholesome revision of the tariff.
He says the country will -hold each
of the great political parties to its plat
form and that the platform of the Prohi
bition party is the wisest of the three. He
does not hisitate to declare the surplus in
the treasury a constant menace to the
business interests of the country. The
propriety of removing the taxlrom whisky,
he says, must depend altogether upon the
purpose intended to bo accomplished
by such removal. The tariff itself
Ujleads the right to existence upon
grounds of its recognition byl'tne
Government and the revenue it pays
into the public treasury. Strike
down this defense and an outraged public
would not long suffer its continuance. The
Prohibition party would strike off the tax '
that it may the sooner destroy the traffic.
The purpose of the Eepublican party in
repeal of the tax is to reduce the revenue
that they may not have "to surrender
any part of our protective system." Pro
hibitionists would take this arch crim
inal out of prison to hang him; Re
publicans to set him at liberty. Every
Christian will approve the motive prompt
ing the one and denounce the other as the
condemnation of human selfishness and
infamy. The protection of American labor
and the industries of the country commends
itself to the majority of the people, but of
infinitely more importance is the protec
tion of our homes. He closed with a glow
ing tribute to the women who have so
long upheld the cause of Prohibition.

The Belligerent Citizens of Hugoton
and Woodsdale Disarmed by the
Liberal, Kan., Aug. 7. The troops sent
out by Governor Martin to restore order in
Stevens County, disarm the warring in
habitants of "Woodsdale and Hugoton and
assist in the arrest of the murderers of
Sheriff Cross and his three deputies, ar
rived at Hugoton on Sunday evening.
After the troops were drawn up in ling
around the court house square, General
Miles, the commander of the militia, had
the proclamation of the Governor read to
the assembled citizens, and then 4.he sol
diers were ordered to disarm the
inhabitants of the town. The latter
part of the proceeding was not very
successful, as the news of the coming of
the troops had reached the town before
their arrival, and, in consequence, very
few arms could be found. The same paci
fying measures were taken by the troops
yesterday at "Woodsdale and with about
the same result. Sunday evening the Unit
ed States marshal arrested Sam Robinson,
J. P. Chamberlain and six others. Besides
these the marshal had warrants for the ar
rest of several other citizens of Hugoton,
and also of Sam "Wood and Ed Short, of
"Woodsdale. The above arrests were made
before the troops arrived, and, strange to
say, Robinson,who had frequently boasted
that he would like to see the man who
could arrest him, submitted to his
arrest without offering any resistance.
Perhaps he thought it would not be
policy to resist, and perhaps he was under
the impression that he could not be
punished any wayj as the crime was com
mitted in the Neutral Strip, over which
the United States Gove'rnment seems to,
have no "jurisdiction. It is expected that
the prisoners will be brought here to
morrow and taken on the afternoon train
to Topeka for trial. It has not been learned
here under what charge the arrests were
made, but whatever the charges are there
is no doubt 6f it that the inhabitants of
the two contending towns in Steveris
County can be pacified and will come to an
amicable understanding if the leaders of
the disturbance, the men who continually
stir up bitter feelings in both Hugoton and
"Woodsdale,-are kept out of taecdunty ftw
