Special to the News.
Enterprise, Kan., July 19. The first
session of the state central committee of
the People's party closed Its labors to
day. There was a full attendance of the
committee, as well as a number of the
candidates on the state ticket A num
ber of the congressional districts have
been polled and the People's party
managers claim that they will have a
majority of 40,000 and expect to elect a
full congressional delegation.
Several of the candidates addressed an
Important meeting at the town hall Jast
night, and although no notice was given
till evening the house was crowded and
sixty-nine new names were added to the
local People's party club.
The committee did a vast amount of
routine business and are fully prepared
for an aggressive campaign. The Advo
cate, of Topeka, was named as the
official state organ. Chairman Brelden
thaland Judge 8. II. Snyder, of King
man, were appointed a committee to at
tend the silver league convention at
Denver. The following resolution was
A SPLENDID ENDORSEMENT.
Whereas, The Rooky Mountain News, a
daily paper published at Denver, Colo., is
an able exponent of the free coinage idea,
and is a newspaper of such character as to
be worthy the support of any citizen, and
Whereas, Said Rocky Mountain News is
earnestly supporting the nominees of the
People's party for president and vice presi
dent; therefore be it

John W. Bhbidenthal,
Chairman State Central Committee.
Attested: Chahles S. Davis, Secretary.
Enterprise, Kan., July 19, 1892.
Ward heelers, political bummers, cam
paign tricksters, vote buyers and sellers
were warned In no uncertain terms, as
the following shows evidence: ''
Whereas. It is apparent that the purohase
of votes at eleotions through the state of
Kansas, has been practised; that the giving
of bribes for the delivery of votes to certain
candidates has heretofore been praotioed to
a considerable extent, and that employers
of labor have in many instances, by threat
and otherwise, dictated to their employes
for whom their ballots should be oast; there
fore be it
Resolved, By the state central oommittee
of the People's party of Kansas, that we
authorize our chairman to offer a reward of
$100.00 for the arrest and conviction of any
one guilty of giving or offering a bribe to
any voter of the state of Kansas during the
campaign of 1892, and the above reward
shall be paid regardless of 'the manner in
which the bribe is offered, or the political
party to whioh the'oonvioted person may be-
. long, to the end that the purity of the bal
. lot may be maintained.
The above was attested in language
that cannot be mistaken, by the chairman
of the committee, as follows:
WILL PAT IT.
In accordance with the above, I hereby
airree to nay to the person or persons fur
nishing the evidence to convict anyone
offendins as above, the sum of $100.00 for
each conviction, payable immediately after
The labor troubles at Homestead and
in the Cceurd'Alene were discussed at
great length and resulted In the follow
Ing resolution being unanimously
adopted and which cannot fail to carry
hope to every heart:
WOBDS OF CHEEB.
Whereas. Recent developments in manu
facturing and mining districts in our coun
ts indicate that a crisis has been reached
in the contest between labor and capital of
of duch a nature that all true patriots must
must take a firm stand in behalf of labor
in order to prevent serious oonsequences;
Whereas. The nomination of the avowed
and outspoken enemy of organized labor
for the vice presidency by the Republican
TYnrtv. and the defiant stand taken by the
Carnegie oompany against labor organiza
tions, coupled with the employment and
the use of a private army to shoot down
American citizens, evinces a design upon
the part of the plutocrats of America to re
duce the laborers to absolute subjeotion;
Resolved, by the '. central committee of
the People's party of Kansas, That we ex
tend to the workmen at Homestead, Pa.,
and in the mines of Idaho and elsewhere,
our sympathies in their struggle .to main
tain the dignity of labor, and pledge to
them our hearty co-operation in all honor
able efforts to secure justice and equity,
and assure them that Kansas will send eight
congressmen and one additional senator of
the Fifty-third oongress. pledged to legis
late in their interests and to prohibit the
organization and employment of private
armies, such as the Pinkerton thugs, to be
used against labor organizations, and who
will favor the establishment of national
and state boards of arbitration, in whioh
organized labor shall have a fair represen
tation for the settlement of all differences
arising between employers and the employe.
Adopted and ordered sent to the com
mittee at Homestead.

Board of Agriculture, '0P the Week
Ending July 25, 189.
During (he past week the rainfall has
been slightly In excess of the normal in
the Republican, Blue, and Kaw river
valleys. An excess occurred also at
Hutchinson. Over the rest of the state
there has been a decided deficiency, es
pecially In the western and southwestern
portions, over a large area of which, ex
tending from Rawlins to Harper, either
no rain or less than one-tenth Inch oc
curred. The rainfall has been light also
In Marlon, Woodson, Montgomery, and
the southeastern counties generally.
TEMPERATURE AND SUNSHINE.
The temperature has been in excess of
the normal over the whole state, reaching
09.5 degrees at the central station, 106
degrees at Manhattan, 100 degrees at
Minneapolis, 110 degrees at Sprlngdale,
101 degrees at Abilene, 102 degrees at

A very few stations report the sunshine
as normal, all others report a decided
The weather the past week has been es
pecially favorable to the harvest, which
la now practically completed, and stack
ing and threshing have begun. The
yield of both wheat and oats at the ma
chine appears to be all that they prom
ised at harvest, wheat yielding from
twenty to forty bushels per acre, with a
plump berry which causes it to outweigh
Corn has grown rapidly, and Is begin
ning to tassel In the northeastern coun
ties. In the area over which good rains
have fallen t is making wonderful pro-
gress. As the rainfall Occurred In the
early part of the week, however, a good
rain at present would prove beneficial.
As the corn Is now tasseling, rains are
needed over the greater portion of the
state, and in some localities It is begin
ning to suffer greatly, especially In the
area where the rainfall has been defl
clent It Is feared that the excessive
heat has already Injured some tasseling
fields, even where the ground is In fair
condition. Besides suffering from
drought, it is being slightly injured in
Edwards, Ford and Kiowa counties,

some localities. T. B. J ennings,

From Mitchell' County.
The following resolutions were unani
mously adopted at the Mitchell County
Alliance on Friday, June 15, 1892:
Resolved, that in view of the present labor
troubles in Pennsylvania and Idaho, we are
more oonvinoed than ever "that we are on
the verge of moral, social and financial
2. In order that we may escape from this
threatened ruin and destruction it is imper
atively necessary that all rural as well as all
urban labor is as fully and effectively or
ganized as capital now is.
3. We heartily sympathize with the union
laborers at Homestead, Pa., in their deter
mined, just and saored efforts to be pro
tected as wage earners as fully as the
protected manufacturers, and condemn our
present industrial system whioh subjects
the laborer in the field, in the shop or mine,
to the merciless and soulless moneyed cor
porations as to what he is to receive for the
products of his labor, believing that the
time has arrived when all who earn their
daily bread by the sweat of their brow ought
effectively to demand the worth of their
labor, even as the manufacturers demand
what their products are to sell for. -
4. With the sainted Lincoln we beileve
that "labor is prior to and independent of
capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor,
and could ne'er have existed if labor had not
first existed. Labor is the support of capital
and deserves much higher consideration,"
and therefore we protest against the present
conditions, brought about by and through
mislegislation by powers that have been
during the past thirty years, when the amply
protected, disloyal, feudal imitator, Car
negie oan truthfully boast that labor is in
ferior and subordinate to capital.
5. We demand of our present congress
the immediate passage of the anti-Pinker
ton bill introduced during the early part of
the present oongress by Hon. Thomas Wat
son, to the end that the present oppressive
hireling standing army used by the already
overly wealthy to enslave American labor
may be speedily demolished.
6. We hail with joy the first national con
vention of the plain, oemmon people of the
north and south, held at Omaha, Neb., July
i, 1802, and we ask all thoughtful and right
thinking people to carefully examine and
oompare the People's party national con
vention as against the national convention
of the corporations, the trusts, the "jack
lawyers and town loafers," feeling confident
that labor, even in this its first great na
tional campaign, will come forth victorious.
7. To the end that labor may be more
speedily restored to its God-given preroga
tives, and that capital may be shorn of its
present tyrannioal and unjust power, we
hereby renew our allegiance to that political
party whose principles, when enacted into
law, will bring about this much desired re
8. We deeply lament the untimely death
of Hon. L. L. Polk, president of the Na
tional Farmers' Alliance and Industrial
Union, and will ever cherish his great devo
tion, unceasing loyalty and undying love
for and in behalf of toe American farmer.
