Mnrcy K. Ilrown nnd Fted Tlemlng
came down to-Jeffetson City this morn
ing, nnd proceeded to Inject u little Kan
sas City gang politics Into the light for
an honest elections bill. They succeeded
for a time In creating n small panic, but
prompt action frustrated their plans.
Messrs. Ilrown and Fleming were not
alono. Sheriff John 1'. O'Neill "Just
James It. Garner came down on the
h.une train. Mr. Gnrner wni here to nr
gue the Keshlear-Sloan case before Gov

came down with Mnrcy." Mnrcy iald
ho came down In tho "Interest of a paik
nnd boulevard law." The llrst impres
sion was that lie, too, was hero In the In
terest of Keshlenr. It shortly developed,
however, that this was not the case.
Brown and Fleming were in the
senate chamber an hour before
that body met, buttonholing sen
ators. Then It leaked out that
tlipy did not like tho election bill decided
on by the conference committee. After
tho senate adjourned they held a con
ference with Senator Loe, of Jackson.
Ten minutes later Mr. Ilrown stated to
the Journnl cones.pondent that a clause
In the committee's election bill pro
vided that the judges and clerks selected
by the Itepubllcan commissioner must
bo nppioed by tho entire commlslon,
nnd that If tho Democratic commission
chose they could throw out nil of his
appointments. To-night, nt tho Madl
on house, Ilrown repeated chls state
ment, nnd he and Fleming persistently
circulated It. Judge Robeitson and Judgo
Dunn, of the conference committee, were
asked If the bill had any such provision
and both igorously denied It Itobci t
son, a Itepubllcan, confronted lit own,
and still tho ox-prosecutor maintained
that he was right. .He then intimated
that later amendments had been
made, and Fleming said: "If jou don't
believe It, looK at l.i- interlineations in
Some people who Know th ways of tho
gang at once suspected that the bill had
been tampered with. The bill -was In the
possession of Senator Morton, and four
or live newsptper men at once went
with him to his loom and examined It
The bltl was in exactly the same foim
as when tepoited by the committee.
Then the cat was out of the bng. lliown
nnd Fleming, llnding that thoie was no
hope of defeating the bill by legitimate
means had statted In to stampede tho
Republicans by Inducing them to be

the bill contained that cluisc, but io

Brown said to-night that he did not
know when he would return to Kansas
City. He will piob.tbly remain and light

tho water works compiny shall bill and
that the oily hhall pty the purchase money.
Thl judgment must h enforced I he
tiiltstlon how this Is to be done Is another
m itttr. The cltv authorities havo said by
bonds. If the bonds are not Issued, then
tliu court cm in mil inws the city ;;f
lleers and compel them o levy a tax. The
court has this power nnd If the people le
Ject the bond Issue, then the will probably
have to pay tho price by a levy made, nil
In one year This would mean an assess
mem of 3 per cent. There was no w ly to
dodto tho Issue and tho sooner the people
know where they are "at." the sooner tho
ttouble will be settled The onlv tvlfeet of
the defeat of the bonds would be tho post
ponement of the matter until the city can
ralbo the money bj some other mentis.
This point should be drilled Into the people
until they reach the conclusion to take
bonds for a long unit of voars Instead of
a :i nor cent levv In one year.
Judge Cage said there could be no doubt
of tho power of the court to mandamus
the city and raise the money by a levy.
There could be no doubt that It would ue
this power. If tho people want to imv In

by defeating thu bond amendment, cm

This could be overcome by going out after
