they're hard to beat for wear be-
cause they're genuine, well made JSrJf mCv>w

THE CRUEL WAR IS OVER.
Peace Once More Reigns in
State Troops Sent Home and
Republicans and Populists Agree to
Hostilities Suspended und the Courts
Appealed to for a Settlement of
the Existing Legislative
By the Associated Press,
Topeka, Feb. 17.—The state troops
have been Bent home, the armed posse
of deputy sheriffs disbanded, the Re
publicans and Populists have laid down
their arms, and tbe war ia over.
The developmentß of the day are re
garded on all sides as a decisive victory
for the Republicans. They secure, by
the terms of tho compromise, undis
puted possession of repreaentative hall,
in the capitol, the main point for which
they had been etruggling. The Populista
secure tbe hollow privilege of meeting
undisturbed in some other place. The
final result of the struggle, however,
will have no effect on the unfortunate
legislative muddle. The Populists say
their house will go right ahead making
lawß, no matter what the courts may
do. The senate will continue to recog
nize the Populist house, and the gover
nor will sign the bills passed by it.
Should they be declared Invalid by rea
son of having been passed by an illegal
house, then tbe Populiats say the blame
will rest on the courts. In case such a
state of things cornea to paBS tbe state
institutions—colleges, asyluma, schools,
etc. —will have to to close.
A VICTORY FOB TUB BEI'UBUCANS,
When the word waß received in the
Republican house that Governor Lew
elling had withdrawn the troopa a great
cheer went up. Speaker DonglaßS made
an address stating that the Republicans
had won a great victory and would win
another tomorrow is tbe supreme court.
POPULISTS ALSO EXULT.
Governor Lewelling said to an Associ
ated Press reporter this evening that the
, PoDnlirt jMrty had taken ao backward
j step. Tb»Fopulißt houae will now pro
ceed without fear of molestation to the
transaction of buainese. Bloodshed had
been avoided, and this he aaid ia
th« crowning triumph of the Populiat
victory. The governor added that he
and the senate would recognize but one
house. If the supreme court declares
the Populist houae unconstitutional,
then the responsibility for the acta of
the houee will rest with it. The Pop
ulists at all times deny the right of the
supreme court to determine any question
arising from the organization of houae of
DOWNFALL OF THE MILITIA,
Brigadier-General Nettinger Btated to
night that Colonel Hughes will be court
martialed for refusing to obey the in
structions of the governor to eject the
Republicans. It ia not likely that
court-martial proceedings againat other
offlcere will be instituted. The present
trouble will no doubt be a death blow to
the Kansas national guard, which has
bo long been the military pride of
EVENTS OF THE DAY.
Snowfall Made Soldiering Tory Uncom
Topeka, Kan., Feb. 17.—Snow fell to
the depth of a foot, making it very un
comfortable for the soldiers during the
night. This morning the guarda around
the capitol were increased. All passes
issued yesterday were rescinded on the
ground that the Republicans had broken
faith by smuggling a lot of deputies into
tho hall, and the governor took the mat
ter of issuing passes into hia own hands.
The guards refused to permit baskets of
provisions to be taken into the capitol.
The Republican house passed an order
appointing a committee to get provis
ions. When they came to the guard
line, the soldiers presented bayonets, but
they were thrust aside and the committee
passed in, followed by a long line of
deputy sheriffs. Lieutenant Patty, in
charge of the guard, pounced on a boy
in line and began choking him, when he
waß felled to the ground with a club.
A shooting scrape was narrowly averted
as the result.
A company of militia, arriving this
morning were sworn in as peace officers
by the sheriff, who will pursue the same
course with later arrivals.
Governor Lewelling received telegrams
tendering encouragement and assist
ance. Pittsburg, Kan..offered 1000 men;
Coffey ville a like number; Smith Center,
200. Senator Peffer and John Davis
telegraphed from Washington : "Guard
the state safely; storm the rebels out."
A PEACEABLE SETTLEMENT.
A Compromise and Armfstlea Finally
Topeka, Kan., Feb. 17.—AU indica
tions point to a peaceable settlement of
the pending political war. Both aides
continued to consider the amended com
promise proposition throughout the
night. A conference was held between
the parties after 2 o'clock this morning,
and it is believed an agreement arrived
at, though all parties to it were pledged
to secrecy. From another source it was
learned that the governor accepted the
compromise in practically the form sub
mitted by tbe Republicans yesterday
afternoon. All Bhow of force is to be
withdrawn and everything to remain in
statu quo till the 'courts decide the
habeas corpus cases to bo brought
through the arrest of tbe clerks of both
houses to test the question which house
is tbe legal one.
A memorandum of the agreement was
sent to the Republican houae by the
governor this morning and adopted
by it. It only remains to be ratified by
the Populiet house. It provided for the
possession of repreaentative hall by the
Republicans, tbe Populiats to meet else
where and the sheriff to dismiss hia dep
The plan of compromise was adopted
by all parties. The Populista engaged
quartera outside of the capitol, in which
to meet. The diatrict court this morn
ing heard and took under advieement
the injunction suit brought by the Re
publicans to reatrain the order from
paying salaries of Populista membera
under the Popullat appropriation bill.
The Munn habeas corpus caae before
the superior court was postponed by mu
tual consent till tomorrow.
The Salary Injunction Case.
Topeka, Kan., Feb. 17.—The injunc
tion suit brought by the Republicans
against the auditor to enjoin him from
paying the salaries of Populist mem
bers, under the Populiet appropriation
bill, came up in the district court this
morning. Attorney General Little
made a motion to diemißß the case,
maintaining that the district court has
no jurisdiction. Judge Hazen overruled
the motion, holding that the court did
have authority in the case and that the
dropping of the caee was a matter of its
discretion. The attorney general then
took an exception to the decision and
appealed to the supreme court,

letter, after quoting the orders sent him

a promotion secured by unauthorized
promises of immediate retirement, shall
be a part of that record. I appeal
to you, therefore, Mr. President
to consider the situation in
which I have been placed without
my knowledge or consent, and I also re

By the Associated Press.
New York, Feb. 17.—Charley Mitch
ell, the English pugilist, met William
A. Brady and Billy Delaney, Corbett's I
representatives, at the World office at 4
o'clock thia afternoon. For an hour and
a half the atmosphere in the sporting
editor's room waa filled with English
finesse and American oratory. Mitch
ell objected to the division of the puree
to be fought for, and bo tbe negotiations
were ended for the time being.
Brady and hia frienda kept the Mitch
ell party waiting for half an hour, and
then forced themselves through a crowd
ol 3000 perßons gathered about the
building, and the proceedings com
menced. Mitchell thereupon produced
20 $500 bills and Brady covered them
with 10 $1000 bills, and the whole
amount, $20,000 wai turned over to the
temporary stakeholder. The fight was
then fixed for the second week in De
cember. The place of contest was left
open, so that clubs may bid for it, and
in the end the club offering tbe largest
purse which is agreeable to both men
will be given the contest.
Mitchell wanted to fight Corbett in a
12-foot ring. Brady eaid a champion
ship battle could not be fought under
such conditions, and Marquis of Queens
berry rules for a finish fight in a 21-foot
ring were agreed to.
It ia arranged that each ehould pro
vide himself with one, two, three, four
and five-ounce gloves, and use the
smallest the club would allow.
Phil Dwyer was selected aa the final
stake holder. It ia also agreed that the
referee should be the official referee of
the club where the fight takes place;
the fight to be to a finish, the referee
having no power to interfere in that re
Then came an announcement which
threatens to disrupt the whole proceed
ings. Brady aaid the winner would of
course take tbe whole purse, but Mitch
ell objected, saying he thought there
should be a diviaion. Brady wanted all
or nothing, but waa willing to let $1000
go to the loser for training expenses.
Mitchell, however, demanded that the
puree be divided, 80 and 20 per cent.
Brady would not conaent to this, but
finally consented to let tbe loser have
$2500. Mitchell would accept no propo
sition except bis own, and the meeting
adjourned till tomorrow to permit Brady
to telegraph Corbett what further con
cessions he shall make. Corbett's reply
came late tonight, as follows:

A Bank Failure Leaves Him* Practically
Younqstown, 0., Feb. 17. —A sensa
tion waa cauaed in business, financial
and manufacturing circles today by the
failure of Robert L. Walker, a promi
nent banker and capitalist, who made
an aeaignment for the benefit of hia
creditors. The failure will be wide
spread in its effects, involving Governor
Mi-Kin ley, and the indications are now
that every dollar's worth of property
owned by the governor will be swept
away. Aa near aa can be estimated the
liabilities will reach $2G0,000. The fail
ure was due to investments in properties
and enterprises requiring a large outlay
of money that have not aa yet been pro
ductive. From boyhood Governor Mc-
Kinley and Walker have been the
closest personal friends, and the gov
ernor endorsed Walker's paper fre

New York, Feb. 17. —A special from
Washington says t It ia learned on high
authority that President Harrison haa
reconsidered hia determination not to

the gold deficiency. Before leaving the
city Wednesday the president author
ized Secretary Foster to offer bonda for

sudden change of mind on the part of
the president waa wholly unexpected
and is not to be attributed to any out

TUB RESERVE WILL BE PRESERVED.
Washington, Feb. 17. —Secretary Fos
ter states tod»y that he will preserve the
$100,000,001) gold reserve at all hazards.
How, he could not say, but he stated
with emphasis that if it became neces
sary to issue bonds to do it, he would go
even to that extreme. At present the
free gold is more than $8,000,000. He
felt almost certain he could reach the
end of his term without having to issue
"Even to issue bonds, say $50,000,000,"
said the secretary, "would not necessa
rily mean an increase in the gold to that
extent. The law providea that bonds
mnat be paid for in coin. Silver ia coin.
What ia there to prevent silver or ita
equivalent from being offered for bonds?
"Could I refuae it? No.
"Even if the bonds were aold, would
that relieve the aituation?"
"Not unless an arrangement based on
honor between ttie secretary of the
treasury and the purchaser waa made,
and then I would be subject to all sorts
of criticiams. The whole subject is sur
rounded by vexations. You m.ay say,
however, that the gold reserve will be
kept intact, come what may."

Treasurer Nebecker is quite emphatic
in hia opinion that the United States
government should not issue bonds at
