SECOND DAY OF CONTENTION.
The womens suffrage convention met yes
terday morning at 9:30 o'clock atr tho M. E.
church. The committee on organization
submitted the following report, which was
adopted: President, Mrs. M. E. Lease; vice,
president, Mrs. Anna Johnson; secretary
Mrs. Callings; treasurer, Mrs. Dr. ITannio
A committee on resolutions was appointed
with instructions to report at last nighfs
session, but did not make a report owing to a
lack of time. A constitution governing tho
tho society was adopted. Miss An
thony made a short but pointed
speech urging the society to work
earnestly to work for woman suffrage. This
completed tho morning session.
The afternoon session opened with prayer
from Mr. Brnnscoaibe, tho candidate for
governor on the prohibition ticket. During
tho course of tho meeting ho was called upon
to address the convention. He expressed
himself in favor of allowing the ladies a
vote. He said it was only just that women
should have the ballot, and unjust that they
aro deprived of it.
Ho was followed by Miss Anthony
who spoke in high term3 of Mrs. Niekols,
who was ono of tho earliest workers in Kan
sas. Mrs. Colby, editor of the Woman's Tribune
in Nebraska, read a short sketch of Mrs.
Niekols. She then gave a lecture giving a
history of woman's condition, commencing
with Grecian history. Sho was very gener
ous to thoso ladie3 who aro opposed to woman
suffrage. Sho thought it was a matter of
indifference and due to the fact that"they had
not given tho matter much thought.
This completed the afternoon session.
Tho evening session was held in tho f. A.
R. hall. A large crowd had assembled at
tho appointed hour. Mrs. Colby opened the
meeting by select reading. Mrs. McCoy
gas-c an original temperance allegory which
was well received.
lrs. 31. E. Lease introduced tho speaker of
tho evening, Miss Anthony, in a few very
appropriate remarks. Tho speaker com
menced by inviting the gentlemen to
tho front seats. Sho was of the opinion that
they were tho persons who sho was anxious
would hear what sho had to say. It is pos
sible to givo only a few points concerning
her lecture. Sho referred to tho history of
tho poor laboring man of England. His his
tory for a century wa3 told. His advance
ment in giving him a voico in tho affairs of
the government she thought was only simi
lar to what will occur in this country in tho
of giving tho lauies a
in tho affairs of state.

He represented himself to some of the real
estate men of the city as on a prospecting
tour, and after ho had been here a few days
intimated that he would buy some real estate
if figures could bo agreed upon. He was
glided around the town in great shape and
was shown property all along the scale from
$1,000 to 550,000. Ho would occasionally
find something that suited his fancy
and would write it so in his
book, and tell the seller that he would take
it in a few days. He had selected about
$100,000 worth of property that he was de
cidedly mabhed on. In doing all this he
spent about three week, and made a point to
get acquainted with tho leading business
Ho was partially introduced to them by
one of their number who knew him about
twenty-fivo years ago when ho had not con
tracted bad habit3. Ho seemed to have
gained tho confidence of a number of gentle
men. Ho was not called upon for his botel bill as
it was supposed he was as good as goid. He
had made fiiends with a livery stable, and
had a good sized account there. Ho seemed
to bo a great reader, aud owed a number of
uows stands from $" to $10.

Several prominent ladies of Wichita, with
some of tho sp.akers and visitors at the
equal suffrago convention, now :n progress
in the city, dined yesterday at tho Manhat
tan hotel, the guests of Dr. Nannie Stevens-.
Miss Su-aaB. Anthony sat opposite to the
fair hostess at the head of the table. Among
tho number were Mrs. Clara B. Colby of Be
atrice, Neb., editor of Woman's Tribune;
Mrs. Laura M. Johns of Saline, vico presi
dent Kansas Equal Sufii-ago association;
Mrs. Bayno of Anthony, Mrs. CuthLcrt of

m v. T.rac;- Mrs. U. S. Collins. Mrs. Geor-J
gia McCoy, Mrs. S. G. Johnson, Mrs. Hills,
Mr?. M, E. Packer. Mrs. Baldwin of Wich
ita. After tho coiTeo had como on, for no wine
sparkled on lh$? board, Dr.
Stevens proposed a toast to
the equal suffrago association which
was responded to by Miss Anthony in
a bright speech, sketching tho advancement
of woman from tho days when Elizabeth
Blackwell fought hard for a medical educa
tion and recognition in her profession, to
this day in which Dr. Nannie Stevens and
other woman pky.iicians may riso to tho top
of tho profession environed by honor aud ad
vantage. Mrs. Cuthbcrt of Bello Plaine,
toasted tho third party, and Mrs. M. E.
Leaso responded, claiming the third party as
tho ono party favoring woman. Mrs. Laui a
M. Johns then propoced a toast to tho Re
publican party, Miss Anthony responding,
enumerated tho varrous votes in congress on
several phases of tho woman question,
and showed that tho majority of
favcrablo votes wero Republican;
that a Republican legislature had submitted
a woman suffrage constitutional amendment;
that Kansas Republicans had a woman suf
frage plank in thoir platform of lSS"; that as
women havo no votes, and as women suf
fragists aro of all partic, a suffrage organ
ization should keep itself non-partisan. Miss
Anthony sat down amidst apjjlauso and Mrs.
Colby roso to propose a least to tho Demo
cratic p"rty. Mrs. Johns offered a toast to
Dr. Stephens, a woman who could pur
sue tho deplored, hardening study of medi
cino and succeed in its practice without
losing her womanliness. But whilo wit was
sparkling, and the laugh going round, tho
hour of tho afternoon session of convention
approached, and tho party roso from the
table to adjourn to tho church. Tho ladies
wero indebted for carriage. to Mrs. Georgia
McCoy, of Wichita.
Last Friday ho told tho gentlemen with
whom ho hail been trading, that on tho fol
lowing Saturday if they would 'havo tho
deeds made out ho would pay cash. He paid
cash aud wanted a releaso deed on every
thing. On the afternoon of tho camo day ho
drew a check on a New York preacher and
presented it to a bank in tho city and drew
out $300. That night ho bounced tho town
without paying any of his debts.
Ho told jfgeutleman in tho city that his
brother lived in Wheeling, W. Va., and was
clerk of Ohio county. Tho gentleman who
holds that position is named Mitchell, but
nothing is known here of tho correctness of
tho balance of his statement. In conversa
tion with another gentleman somo days ago,
ho said he was here looking after a site for a
woolen mill, which would bo run by $250,000
of London capital. Ho seemed to bo of tho
opinion that his father-in-law was a Londoner
and a near relative to Wm. E. Gladstone.
Ho was looking after tho interests of tho
old gentleman in the United States.
An effort is being made to capture him.
Ho has hit tho men who havo tho money to
hunt him and who mean to find him if they
havo to bo on the lookout for years.
Ho is a largo man, seemingly fifty years
old, with dark brown eyes and -fairly red
face, ornamented with a prominent beer-keg
nose. He wears a heavy black beard.
