Topckn, Kas , April 2S,-(Rpeclal ) On
Thursday of list week a I'opull! evening
paper In Topeka, which Is hostile lo Ihe
ltepnbllcan stale adinlnlstrnlloh, published
nu article with h 1 1f a dozen sensational
heads, n which II charged that a certain
stale olllcer went reeling ami swaying
down Kansas avenue In n beatly Hate
of Inloxlcntlon, No names were Used, but
the article wns so i'ontruetcd that It
coiltil mean none other than State Treis
urer Atherton. On Saturday the Populist
editorM convention nl Sillna took up this
newspaper nrtlele ntnl, nfter It truth hnd
been vouched for by a Topeka editor pre
flit, adopted a resolution demanding nn
investigation fiom tlm governor and the
removal of Mr. Atherton from olllcc.
Mr. Atherton tetuined from n trip with
the stnte board of railroad assessors on
r3.tturd.il night, ami learned for Ihe first
time of the assault Upon his fair name.
He Is grieved ami hurt bevond expre
slon and I Industriously hunting for some
one to hold responsible for the outrage
The speclllc charge made by the evening
piper wns as follow:
"A few minutes befote il o'clock he
started for the Santa 1-e depot to catch
his train, He slaegered from one side
of the walk to Ihe other, utterly unable to
regulate hi course, his slninefill condi
tion visible to scores of people along the
street, some of whom knew him ntnl somo
"lo those who knew that he occupied one
of the highest positions in me gift of the
peoiil" It was n mortlfvlng exhibition.
"A shoit distance north of the Copeland,
on Kansas avenue, he was, while swaslng
almost from olio side of the broad walk
to the other, met by the correspondent of
a Kims is City pap.r, who spoke to honi,
'What are, you doing here on the street
drunk like till?
"The state otllclal wa nble to explain
that he was tr)lng to get Vo the Santa Ve
depot to catch a ttaln for Kitnn City,
and the newspaper man attempted to
help him get on a insing street car
The gootl Samaritans elforts were In
vain, however, as the stnte olllclal was too
drunk to get on the car '
lhere are three Kanas City newspaper
correspondents In lopekn. each of whom
pronounce the above, o far as it relate to
him, as false. The correspondent of the
Kansas CltV Joiiril.tl ec hn lu nV-nli.il.le tl,,.
man leferrcd to, met Mr Atherton on the
sireci us no was nurr.ving to me depot and
"Hello, where are you going, so fast'"
(,0,t to catch the Santa I'e tialn, ' re
sponded .Mr Atherton
"Hotter take a strei t cni." advised the
reporter, tn the Mc-lne spite trensuier,
who was streaking It down the avenue at
a gnat late to behold There was no strict
tir In sight on Kansas avenue nnd tho
above Is nil and evei) thing which took
place bt tween the correspondent and tho
the state irensunr.
A thoiough Investigation of Mr Ather
ton s movements on Sunilnv the da) the
pectin enco Is said to have taken 'place,
li is been made and It disprove, beyond the
shallow or doubt, the charge of intoxication
made against him.
Mi Atherton spent the morning In at
tending to some private conospcmdcnce.
About 1 o'clock he went to the Copelund
hotel and nt In the lobb) chitting with
fiitnds for about an hour nml a half At
a little befoio .1 o'clock he was called to
thp resilience of Senator Sterne b) a tel
There he met C. A ivilow. mi) or of
Topeka. and the three talked over business
in which the elty was Jointly Interested
with the executive council Snalor hterno
to-d ly snld to the Journal reporter
"Mr. Atherton wn at my houo for
about an hour and a half, as ,iNo was
Mivor rellovvs. We sit together on tho
Htalrs In m) house, is one of m) children
was sick with scnrlet fever, nnd we did
not think It best to go up to the puIoi..
It Is nbsnlutelv Impossible that Mr Athei
ton could have bet n drinking to nnv ex
tent whatever, or I should have known It.
I am readv to go Into comt and swear
th it Mi. Atherton was not even In the
slightest degree under the Inlluence of
liquor. A few minutes before e, o'c lock ho
left mv doorway foi the Sinta I'e depot,
going down the avenue as an) man would
who hud only about ten minutes In which
to go a mile."
Senator Sterne spoke warml) about what
he termed an outrage upon tho statu treas
urer Mayor Tellows was next ecn and he
even moro stronglv denounnd the Tharge
than Senator Sterne. "There is absolutely
no foundation to the toiy" mid the
in.Dor, "except that Mr Atheiton may
hive attracted attention from his hustling
movements clown Kansas avenue In order
to catch a train. I was with him during
the nftemoon up to the moment he left
to catch his train, ami I know that he
neither drank anything nor did he give
the slightest indication that he hail drank
anything during the culler p.ut of tho
d.i). It Is a shame to -.lander .a man like
.Mr Atherton himself siys he had not
tasted strong liquor during the day. Mr

Dear Sit; Having made n discovery

I ndilree von In the hope that you will
give publicity to my claim. I run well
nvvare thnt In mnlsltif: tho positive state
ment thnt I have liiiulo .1 discovery that
will revolutionize the preparation of nil
water used for washing purposes, tho
toilet, tin th ntnl laundry, n strong doubt
will arise in the mind of the public
a to the truth of this statement. It la
to overcome this picjildlco that I In
voke the aid of tho ptes. I nsk for tho
fullest lnvctlgntloti under your direct
ami personal supervision. It seem'' to
me that the tnlicst nnd surest way
to test the vnluo of this preparation
would bo for me to send 10,000 trial
packages to the Journal olilce, there to
bo given out absolutely free to .ill per
son who apply; tlmt tho nume nml ntl

preparation be tnkcn, and nt the end
of a reasonable length of time n re

be published In the Joutnnl, By this
means thcte can be no deception or
fraud, nnd the value of this picp.aratlon
will stand or full upon the testimony
of those who have tried It.
Inipiobnblo ns this statement rany
seem, yet I nm prepaied to provo by
thousands of people who have ueil
this preparation that It will soften the
hardest ot water! It will hold colon
from running In pt luted goods and keep
bluing from curdling In the water.
Klnnnels nnd woolens washed in water
prepared with this most valuable prep
nintlon will positively not shrink, 1'or
the bath or toilet It Is Indispensable,
making the water soft and olicty,
accelerating the action of soap, giving
the skin a healthy glow and helping;
the soap to lemovo any superfluous
cxoietlons that may ndhere to the body.
Tor dishes nnd geneinl washing put
poses It Is very essential, as It saves
both labor and soap This preparation
Is not to bo confounded with s,oap pow
der, as It contains no soap, lye, am
monia, lime or any deleterious Ingredi
ents. It Is not a greasy prepatatlon
whatsoever. Knin water maker In tho
true sense of the word, Is for prepar

a strong nlllnity for soap. It is essential
that all consume! s of doap must event
