A conference was held yesterday In a
room at the Baltimore hotel between Gent-nil
James B. "Weaver, presidential can
didate on the Populist ticket In 1J, and
Judge J. G. Johnson, Democratic national
committeeman from Kansas, who Is also
the chairman of the executive board of
that committee. 'General "Weaver arrived
Jn Kansas City about noon and repaired
ut once to the hotel, where the Kansas
state committee was In session. He was
lresent during a part of the afternoon at
that meeting, but later he and Judge John
ton went Into executive session.
All that General Weaver would say In
reference to his visit here was that he
Just" happened to be going through the
city on his way to Colfax. la., his home,
from the "West. Judge Johnson, In his
capacity as chairman of the executive
board, has charge or the finances of the
Democratic, party, and. It Is a portion of
Ills duty to get .he money with which cam
paigns are managed. ,In an interview with
a reporter .for The Journal, General Weaver
stated that he would stump the country
for the Democratic nominee during the
next "presidential campaign jand it Is said
that his conference, .with Judge Johnson
was in reference to this.
"Xo." said .General "Weaver, in reply to a
question, "I am not a .candidate for any
ottlce, but I have always been an active
worker and I thall be In the thick of the
light during the coming campaign."
"Will you take the stump for llr.
"I will do as I have always done take,
the stump for the nominee of the party.
The united Democracy Is fortunate In hav
ing a tnan-Ifke-5frrBry2naflt.s head tc
lead them on "to victory- and there Is no
doubt ln'wy mind that he will be the. nom
inee. A better man arid a more capable
leader could not be chosen."
""Upon what Issue will the Democracy
make Its tight during the coming cam
paign?" "1 do not' care to talk- about- the Issues
of the campaign now, buti 1 will say that
In my opinion the Chicago, platform will
"Will silver be the dominant Issue, or
will it be expansion?"
"I cannot say; 1 don't care to discuss that
question at all."
"What are your personal views on these
questions? Are you an expansionist?"
'What do you mean by expansion? The
term Is ambiguous."
"Possession of the Philippines, for In
stance., You have no doubt heard that
Governor Jones, of Arkansas, has come out
In favor of expansion?"
"If you mean the taking in of new ter
ritory by the United States at the request
of those over whom we are extending our
dominion, then I am In favor of expansion.
Jf 'It means war the murder of Innocent
natives, the burning of their homes,.and
the devastation of their land, then I am
not in favor of expansion. If It's a peace

the kind of expansion I believe Go-ernor
Jones is In favor of. 1 think the admin
istration has all It can carry on all of
these questions and is doomed to defeat
at the coming election. I am against the

It will take a great deal of money to run
the next Democratic national campaign,
and to Judge Johnson falls the burden of
raising the required amount. In discussing
-the matter -with a number of politicians
yesterday he stated that from $5,000 to
.'JlOO.WO would be required from every state.
in the Union. Missouri, while it will not
be In the J100.000 class, will be far above
the minimum, and the moneyed Democrats
of the state will be asked to make liberal
contributions. The work of raising the
fund will begin within the next three
nionms. according to me pians wnicn win
be Anally decided upon at the national
committee meeting in Washington early
In the year. It is proposed to follow the
Harvey plan, which was found to be pro
ductive j?f results during the last cam
Ialgn. This plan Is to have each contrib
utor to the fund pledge himself to give a
certain amount, payable in monthly in
stallments. The national committee will
riot rest until it has obtained pledges
enough to go far beyond the contemplated
expense of the campaign, as there is al
ways a considerable loss In uncollected
pledges. By pursuing this plan the com
mittee expects to come out about even.
The campaign will be much'more expensive
than usual, and hence the work of getting
contributions will begin unusually early.
Judge Johnson stated also that the press
bureau, which Is, In charge of Sam B. Cook,
chairman of the Missouri state Democratic
committee, was preparing .for an active
campaign. Column after column of matter
Is being furnished the "plate factories" for
the country press and a series of weekly
press bulletins has been Inaugurated.

Exceptional Scarcity of Game, Owlnit
Partly to the Recent Poor Snlp
Not since the game season opened has
there been such a scarcity of wild birds on
the Kansas City market as at present. Old
market men say that the time from
Thanksgiving until Christmas Is always a
poor season for game, and this year has
thus far proved no exception. There Is a
lackof demand for all kinds of game, and
there is a decided deficit of. game Itself,
partly because of the poor shipping weath
er of the past week and .because of the
scarcity of game In the country generally.

The hearing of the, suit of I.ora Mar
quis against Kansas City for $50,000 dam
ages for personal Injuries sustained in a
fall from a sidewalk across a ravine was
continued before Judge Gates yesterday.
The plaintiff In the case, who walks on
crutches and has to be supported to and
from the courtroom, gave her evidence in
the afternoon and almost collapsed from
weakness while on the stand. Dr. J. T.
Craig, who attended her. wa obliged to
administer restoratives and Judge Gates al
lowed her testimony to be interrupted
while she left the room to ret. ,
Eighteen special jurors were summoned
to try this case and the plaintiff and de
fendant were therefore entitled to three
challenges each. After the Jurors were
summoned two well known business men
who were Included In the twelve select
ed were subpoenaed by the plaintiff and
were t)ieiefore rendered Incompetent to
trv the case. By such a cour.e the plain
tiff would practically gain the advantage
of five challenges Instead of the three
properly allowed. The men subpoenaed
claim that they know nothing of the case.

Nearly 100 interested people boarded the
special train for Quindaro at the Union
station a little after 1 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. The men were the members of
the city council, the women members of
Kansas City's progressive club, the Athen
aeum. The train was the Missouri Pacific,
the use of which had been kindly donated
by that company for this excursion. Mr.
D. "W. Longwell, superintendent of the
water works, was host for the occasion,
and performed well the duties which de
volved upon him of explaining to his guests
how the water which runs through Kansas
City homes is ca"ught and piped to the. city.
They wanted to know many things and
they found them out, too, before the jour
At Quindaro the party vas first taken to
the banks of the muddy Missouri, where the
pipes which suck In the water can be seen.
That was the beginning of the object les
son which lasted the remainder of the at
For those unfamiliar with machinery end
physics, the matter of understanding the
water works system Is not altogether easy.
But by Intelligent questioning and careful
explanation a few general principles of the
matter were made plain to all before the
day ended. The club women now know, as
many of them didn't before, that the water
Is drawn in from the river by suction
caused by the power from the power house
situated a few rods from the river bank.
It is empties Into a large reservoir of four
basins, covering seven acres of ground and
containing 60,000,000 gallons of water. As It
passes through each of these basins It Is
gradually purified, and the Impure matter
skimmed off at the top until, reaching tl.o
last basin, it Is .perfectly fit for domestic
use. This was as far as the lesson pro
ceeded while the party remained at Quin
daro. From the reservoir at Quindaro the water
Is pumped Into another equally large one
at Turkey creek. From there it Is pumped
Into the pipes bringing It to the city. The
party returned from Quindaro, transferred
to the tracks of the' Memphis road with
the compliments of this company, and were
taken to Turkey creek. The chief point of
interest here was the machinery that fur
nishes the power that makes the water
"run up hill."
This excursion was one of Investigation

GREAT STRASBURGt CLOCK.
Rabbi Mayer's Interesting Talk to
the Pulpla of the Central Hlijli
School Yesterday Morning.
Rabbi Mayer talked to the pupils of the
Central high school yeste'rday morning at
their weekly entertainment on "The Stras
burg Clock." The rabbi is a tine speaker
and held the closest attention of his audi
ence during his talk. The qlock' Is one of
the. bldest In the world, dating- back as
early as the. middle" of the fourteenth cen
tury. It is in a way, however, like the
.old doll that has had a new head at one
time, new arms at another, and finally an
entire new body, but still remained the
same doll. The clock itself Is the third
one that has been placed in the cathedral.
The first one kept its place for about an)
years, when something got- out of order
and as no one could fix It. If was taken
down: the second one occupied the oppo
site side of the transept from the present
This last one Is only about seventy-five
years old. The most remarkable thing
about this clock is that-it Is; self-regulating.
On New Year's, or St. Sylvester's, eve. as
It used to be called, there Is a great whir
ring and buzzing In the old'clock, and when
this has ceased the clock Is regulated. It
used to be that on St. Sylvester's eve the
good neonle of Strasbttrir would gather by
me tnousands when the olil clock readjusts
Itself for another year's work, and look up
In awed sllenco at this wonderful mastei
piece. almost divine to them, but the
crowds grew so dense each year that the
gatnerlngs were finally prohibited.
There are six tiers ot the clock's struc
ture. The tlrst tier, or face, shows the
sun and stars lu a firmament of blue.
These move as do the stars In the heav
ens. On the second tier is the chariot of
the sun, which makes its circuit once in
every twenty-four hours. On the third tier
Is the clock Itself, much smaller than its
great setting. Above this are two chubby
little angels belonging to the Renaissance
period and looking strangely out ot place
among their majestic surroundings. One
of the angels hold an hourglass In hte
hand and the other a hammer. Still above
these is a dial plate, which represents the
days, weeks and months. Above this is a
skeleton representing Death, and past thU
figure pass hourly four others, one at each
quarter of the hour, the first one lnfanpy,
the second childhood, the third middle age
and the fourth old age. The clock strikes
as each figure passes. When the child ap
pears the angel below does the striking
with his hammer. Youth, manhood and
old age each strike a note as they pass
by, and when the hour Is ended the second
angel down below slowly turns his hour
glass over In his hands.
On the next tier stands an image of
Jesus surrounded by the twelve apostles.
These appear but once a day, just at 12,
when each passes slowly before the Master,
and He raises His hand and blesses them.
After these have disappeared there is re
vealed the oldest existing part of the clock.
anu tnat is tne great rooster, mat appears
and makes the harsh and discordant noise
supposed to be a crow. It has probably
looked down upon the streets below for
some 500 years.
Miss Blanche Vandegrift. one of Cen
tralis pupils, rendered a piano solo In an
especially charming and creditable manner,
and Victor Barnett. another pupil, recited
"The Victory of Marengo" In a stirring
and Impressive manner. The programme
was finished a little before time, and the
listeners clamored loudly for more, but
did not get it, and, after a standing Vote
of thanks, were dismissed.
DEMAND BETTER SERVICE.
Seventh Word Citizens Adopt Ilenolo-
tloiiH fur Improvement on the
A meeting of Seventh -ward citizens was
held at Lexington and Park last night. J.
W. Jenkins acted as chairman and F. "
Craig as secretary; T. Bl Buckner, L. B.
Sawyer, L. Traber. F. A. Leach and AV. X.
McDearmon were appointed to carry out
the demands of the following resolutions:
Whereas, We, the citizens ot the Seventh ward,
la mass meeting assembled, have read with pleasure
the pioeeedlngs ot the meeting of the citizens .ot the
.Fourteenth Hard, and the resolutions adopted by
said meeting. Therefore be it
Hesohed, That e heartily approve everything
contained In said resolutions, having reference to
the Northeast Electric Street Hallway Company,
and vie hereby call upon the mayor, common council
and the legal department of this city to see that the
terms of the franchise recently granted to said
cempany be compiled with at once.
The service rendered Is absolutely abominable.
When the old cars were running 'ten tars ran regu
larly upon said line. Mnre the; new cars were put
on, which said new cars are, of the poorest design
and of the cheapest pattern, often only seven cars
are run, and they are sometimes as much as ten
minutes apart. 31 en, women and children Are crowd
ed in like sardines in a box. or hogs In a freight
car. In such a manner that It Is often indecent for
ladies to ride therein. We are not cattle, mules,
sheep or hogs, to be thus treated, and we protest
against being treated as such.
We want more cars and of a better pattern; we
want them to run oil a schedule time, ot not ex
ceeding five minutes apart; we want an uptown
terminus; we want the dangerous and unsightly
bridge crossing the canon Immediately replaced by
such a one as is required by the franchise; we want
cars arrauged for people to sit in with some degree
of comfort, and not cars arranged for standing
space only; we demand that the present pattern of
cars be absolutely prohibited, as not coming up to
:. . . , ... . Z.
th,e, '?li"?"l,!V" ! f.r"ihA,e:
If these reasonable demands are not at once com
piled with we demand that immediate steps be
taken to forfeit the franchise, and In this endeavor
we call upon an the citizens of the Seventh ward.
NOT A G00DTRANSLATI0N.
Dr. C. I. Hunsrerford Proteata Aualnat
the Manner In Which the Bible
Una Been Itendered.
Few people who read translations of
works iu foreign tongues realize the skill
and adaptability required to render into
English. Much of this was the matter
brought up for discussion at the meeting
of the Greenwood Club lastfnlght, by Aliss
Ruby Archer's paper upon "Some Trans
lators and Their AVorks." Miss Archer
gave an able sketch of the work done in
the Held of translation. Illustrating her re
marks by reading passages in the original
language and then translations.
She said that the tlrst characteristic of a
good translation was sympathy with the
thought to be translated. Judged from
this standpoint she showed how Dryden's'
translation of the Iliad, and Pope's Homer
were mere jingles instead of fair represen
tations 01 tne autiiors tney translated.
She commented favorably upon Leigh
Hunt's version of "Tasso" and Longfel
The discussion that followed turned upon
the translation of the Bible. Dr. C. L.
Hungerford protested against the modern
translated Bible on the ground that It Is
not a fair, representation of the Inspired
W. W. "Morgan. Miss Esther Crowe, T. W.
Gllrutli and Superintendent Greenwood
took part hi the discussion.
At the meeting of the club next Frldav
night W. H. Williams will read a paper
on "Nineteenth Century Night."

STOCK BOARDS MEET
UNIFORMITY OF QUARANTINE REG
L'LATIOXS DECIDED UPON.
Representatives From the Various
Western Cattle States In Session
at the Midland Texas
Uniformity of quarantine regulations is
to be bi ought about in Missouri, Kansas,
Texas, Oklahoma. Xew Mexico and Ari
zona. This was decided upon lust night at
a meeting at the Midland hotel of repre
sentatives from the various live stock
boards of those states. These representa
tives organized the Western Live Stock
Sanitary Association and framed a uniform
ity resolution to be acted upon by the sever
al boards at their next time of meeting. The
Missouri board meets December IS, and will
take action on the resolution then.
The meeting was organized by the elec
tion of "tt". B. Tullls, of Texas, as tem
porary chairman, and II. Jack, of Xew
Mexico, temporary secretary. After dis
cussion it was decided to form an organisa
tion in accordance with the following reso
lutions, which were auopteu:
Whereas. The necessity is knoisn to eilst for more
concerted action on the purt of the states anil ter
ritories In order to faecure Immunity (rom Southern
feer or other contagious or infectious diseases, by
enforcing uniform restrictions and the adoption of
uniform regulations concerning inspection of cattle
crosalng or attempting to cross the national quar
antine; therefore, it is hereby
Hesolved, That the name of this organization shall
be the Western Live Stock Sanitary Association;
that the membership ot this body shall be composed
of the lire Mock sanitary commissions ot the states
of Texas. Kansas and Missouri, and the territories
.of Oklahoma; J. R. Hippey, II. J. Waters. W. H.
secretaries of the Cattle Raisers' Association ot
Teias and the Oklahoma Live stock Association ot
It Is also further agreed hereby that no cattle from
any source, bearing Southern feter ticks, will be ad
mitted to any pan ot the territory governed or rep
resented in this association, nortli ot the quarantine
line established by the United States department of
agriculture, at any season ut the year.
W. II. JACK.
W. J. WATERS,
J. It. RIPPEV.
W. E. BOLTO.V.
The meeting adjourned to reconvene this
morning at the Live Stock exchange, when
further action will be taken.
Those present were:
W. u. Tullls. of Teias; Taylor Riddle, and M. C.
Campbell, ot Kansas; W. II. Jack, of New Mexico;
Inspector J. W. Hamilton, ot Kansas: W. E. Bolton,
of Oklahoma; J. R. Rippey. II. J .Waters. W. K.
Wilkinson. I). A. Ely. J. V. Hill, ot Missouri, and
Colonel Albert Dean and W. A. Anderson, ut Kan
"We received a telegram from the gov
ernor." said Secretary J. R. Rippey, of the
Missouri board, "saying that he would
have representatives here, but they have
not ye), arrived.
The territory represented' last night all
lies adjacent to the United States quaran
tine line, and it is on this account that
uniformity In the regulations is so much
to be desired.
The regulations as between Missouri and
Kansas are giving no trouble. There are
Infected regions In the southeastern part
of Kansas and also In the southwest coun
ties of Missouri. But state inspectors are
in these regions and pass cattle back and
forth without trouble or friction. The
workings of the law elsewhere, however,
are not so harmonious. A second, and uer-
haps still more important object, is to se
cure the co-operation of the "Western states
and territories as against Iowa, Illinois
and states east of the Mississippi, which
cannot possimy oe concerned, in many in
stances. In. the Western regulations.
While tuberculosis, sheep scab and other
diseases incident to cattle were Incidentally
discussed at last night's meeting, it was
the Texas fever or the Texas tick which
carries and spreads that fever, that oc
cupied the attention mainly. Northern cat
tle can go south and mingle freely with
the Texas fever cattle and not become
Infected, so long as the ticks do not get
on them. The tick sucks the blood from
the fevered steer, drops off, hatches it
brood of young with the fever poison in
them, and they In turn get on the northern
or healthy cattle and infect them.-
By burning the gTass over great regions,
the fever has been kept out of whole coun
ties in Texas, so -that the fever, is not
necessarily due to totality. The tick may
be brought to Missouri or farther north
and still inoculate the healthy steer with
Recently Northern cattle, before being
shipped to Texas for breeding purposes,
have been Inoculated with the tick blood,
just as one might be vaccinated for small
pox. In this way only 8 per cent of the
cattle shipped into the fever region has
died, while formerly SO per cent dted.
After the state boards have considered
the matter of uniform regulations, and It
is expected that they will meet for that
purpose wlthout.delay, the Interstate board
which met last night will meet again and
ratify the decision.
