The rMnll merchnnl of Knnns City nre
brlnclmr some prMtire to lienr upon the
railroads to Induce the latter to run neck
lay excursions Into the city. The over
whelming success of the Htimlny excursions
run this summer hni attracted nttenllon to
the possibilities thnt mlRht attend slmllnr
excursions on business ility. Nnturnlly,
the retnll mewhnnts would bo the ones
most directly Interested In ucb n move
ment, nm! tt would be very desirable. In
the Interests of the retail trade, to secure
to country customers of those establish
ments the cheapest possible transportation.
l-'rotn a ciuettil citnvns. of the situation,
however. It would sem that there Is very
little hope that the consent of the rail
roads could be secured to such a system of
cheap transportation on business days.
Itnllroad oltlel.il clam that, with oecnslonal
excursions of this kind, their roKtil.ir local
p.issenser business would bo practically
ruined. They have made the experiment In
times past and have never found It satis
factory, It Is claimed that the country
merchant or farmer, who wants to come to
town on business, rarely llnds his call so
pressing that he cannot wait until there
I a reduced rate, when reductions In rates
a 1 -as lrequent as the proposed systems of
excursions would make them. While the
fxcurs'ons themselves inlRht bo profitable,
they rfould work an ultimate loss to the
railroads by destroying their resular busi
ness, conducted nt tariff rates.
Commissioner A. J. VanlandlnKham, of
the transportation bureau, t-nid yesterday
that he had sometimes been asked to do
more for the retail merchants. "I have al
ways done all that I could In my position,"
he said, "to securo to all kinds of business
In Kmishs City the best possible considera
tion at the hands of the railroads, It was
only a rew years ao that a similar move
ment was started -among the retailers, but
had to be abandoned simply because the
railroads could not afford to sacrifice their
regular business or to antagonize the small,
er towns along their lines by offering such
rates Into Kansas City as would practically
K M the retail bu.lnct.s of those towns. An
ot...r very good reason why It Is not a
good thing in every respect to secure such
low rates for the retailer. Is that the towns
whose retail trade would bo affected by the
Jow rates would certainly boycott the
wholesale business of a city that sought
nnd secured such an advantage over them.
Omaha made a big effort last yi-ar to se
cure week day excursions for business pur
poses, but the enterprise was no sooner
announced than It raised such a howl from
the towns of Nebraska that the whole
scheme had to be dropped unconditionally.
"I want to say that the railroads 6f
Kansas City are exceedingly liberal In mak
ing rates for special events, and as these
events nearly all como on business days,
they bring a great many buyers to the
city; but It Is my opinion that even the
nios-t liberal of the roads would not con
sent to a proposition to make rates for
business and visiting excursions simply, if
J thought t at these concessions on the
part of the railroads would be a benefit to
the city, or oven thought they could be
secured for the nurpose of experiment, I
should not express myself as emphatically
fsi have, for I certainly aim to look "to the.
MJr best Interests of the city as a whole."
A nromlnent olliclal of one of the strong
i l anil most liberal or Kansas City's lines
fM yesterday: "The idea that the rail
roads w. -M sacrillce their business by
runnl m veek excursions or extending
the Si-iday xcurslon tickets to Monday or
luesf y, Is nothing short of preposterous.
Of curse, every retailer wants the excur
sions. The wholesalers, who understand
the danger of being boycotted through such
discrimination against the smaller towns,
do not want anything of the sort. Hut the
whole proposition rests Itself right here:
the 'allroads, willing as they are to make
special rates for particular events, cannot
alford to make such sweeping grants, and
there is not the least chance of their doing
so. It is my opinion that If every retailer
asks the favor and every newspaper advo
cates the demand there will not bo a single
one of the Kansas City lines willing to
make the concession, simply because the
railroads cannot afford to sacrliicu their
own Interests. This is substantially what
i told one of the leading promoters of the
scheme when ho asked me about it."
C. D. Axman, of the Golden ICagle, said:
"Neck rimy excursions would be an Incal
culable good--to this city. The other Sun
day when I wont to tlie postolllce to get
my mall I met nt least n dozen people
wn w.tnted me to open my store so Hint
.tie., could buy. They were excuiii,nlsts.
Thut shows what would tuko place if peo
ple could get In here cheaply. I think tho
railroad could flu nothing better than
work up Mich excursions. They are al
ways looklns out for their own interests.
of course, nnrt week day excursions would
Jielp thorn. I am not objecting to Sunday
excursions, for Kansas City is emphatically
b picnic city. 1 am only saying that I
believe that week day excursions1 would
pay ns welt, If not better, than Sunday
excursions. Why, In my own experience,
whenever n school or college out hero In
(he country lus had an- exclusion to this
city and there ha.v been a special rate wo
nnvo had some- of tho excursionists in
this place. That Illustrates the good re
sults of week day excursions."
Mr. J. JI. Kelchle, assistant manager at
Urownlng, King & C'o.'s, said: "I liiive
always been in favor of such a move, and
I m now. I think that if week day ex
cursions' were run livto this city it would
be uenetlted Immensely. I think that you
will tlnel that every buslncst, man you see
will agree with me. Of course our llrm
might not bo helped oven- tlinu nn excur
sion came hcie, but other linns would
and so we would be benellted indirectly,
I am certain that if thu excursion were
run plenty of money would bo spent here.
Tho excursionists would go to tlm parks-,
they -would eat, (deep, drink, and buy
hoes', perhaps, or lints or shirts- even If
they didn't buy suits of clothes. I think
tho money gain would be at leant three
times what It Is on .Sundays. I hopo the
matter will be pushed."
I E. Jlernhelmer, of Hernhe'lmor Ilros.
& Co., snld: "Tho only possible argument
ngaintt week day excursions Is the fact
that tho cheap tickets granted bv tho
railroads miKht be sold to scalpers. Other
wise there- Is not a single argument to
be brought against the proposition. 1 my
elf think It an excellent one. I should
think tho rnllroiido could easily protect
'themselves by issuing thirty-six or forty
eight hour 'tickets, Kvery excursionist
would bo cei'tmlli to have a llttlo over and
above Ms exixroes and 'Ji would bo cer
tain to spentl it on one or more objects.
On Sundays, you will notice, tho- excur-j-lonlstsj
either go to thu parks or stnud
around on the streets. If they don't go
1o tho parks thero Is nowhere f-lse they
can so. Now, the advantage of week day
excursion1 would I- that all thco people
would have nece-ts to tho stores". I uni sure
that we arc willing tu do all wo can to
further the scheme."
J. II, North, of the North Furniture Com
pany, was found In tils otlice and spoke
enthusiastically in favor of week day ex
cursioiis when the subject was mentioned
to him. "I don't seo where there Is any
argument against such a proposition," he
said, drawing up his chair so his words
would not be misunderstood. "It Is the best
thing that could possibly happen
right at this Kirtlcular time. The
country people will do all their trading
In the city, and will leavo
among the retail merchants thousands of
ilollurs they would otherwise spend at
home. Some two or three years ago 1 tried
to work up some enthusiasm in the matter
of week day excursions to Kansas City,
and went so fur uh to consult with mem
bers of the Commercial Club. We sought
the railroad otliclals and ascertained that
the roads would operate In conjunction
with us providing tho merchants would
Insure them against loss. I was among
the tirst to otfer a, guarantee, and the
movement seemed to be fairly under way,
when for some reason or other It was sud
denly dropped. 1 am Just as much lu favor
of It now as I ever was. and hope It will
come to pass. In the 1-ust tho merchants
of the larger cities have made arrange
ments with the railroad companies where
by the trains arrive In the cities in the
morning and depart in the een1nir, thus
giving the out-of-town people a chance to
co to the city, do their shopping, and re
turn home in tho evening. It is u great

matter of price's, nnd nlw works to pond

Herman Stretcher, Jeweler. No. 101 Main
Blreel "The iitnttlon f running weekly
uxenrMon frtim the nelshborlnrt towns Is
one of vast moment to the buslneKS men
of thl city. It would mean that lens of
thousands of people wht do not buy a dol
lar's worth of goods in this city during
the entire year could he made to con
trlbut" to the wealth of our merchants.
Sunday excursions do not benellt the city
in nnv way, bc-nuso the people brought
to this city nnd all business houses closed.
Of course such excursions swell the coffers
of the railroads, .itrc-ct car companies and
wiloons, but that does not Increase tho
bimtness of Hie nveroge city merchant.
Now, If we could have excursions run In
thl city on business days, they would
piovo of Inestimable value to each of us
and would not hurt ur sister towns. 1 he
farmer, with his entire family, could come
to this city and buy Ids needed supplies
It mien excursions were run from the
s-urroundlne country nt regular Intervals.
There Is many a ." bill stowed away that
would be spent with Kansas City mer
chants if we could nrrnriKo these excur
sions. The railroads would not suffer by
such exclusions. On tho contrary, their
receipts would be Increased. .As for regu
lar rates being destroyed by excursion
tickets being placed on sale, 1 do not be
lieve it, for the simple reason that no man
would wait days for nn excursion train
to come to this city If he had business
to transact. It we are going to secure
these business day excursions, we must
agree Upon n plan of action and then work
until we securo what we want."
ad excursion . J- ' .,
ltobert Keith, head of the .Keith Furn
iture Company, says that the movement
Is one or the most Important undertaken In
Kansas City for a number of yenrs. No
excursion," said Air. Keith, "ever came
Into Kansas City without bringing cus
tomers for iiinnv of our business houses.
The week day excursion would be of great
value to every commercial, Jobbing and ic
tall industry lu the city lu establishing an
acipialntanee between the buyer and tho
seller, besides the prollts from the, many
sales that would be made. It Identifies tho
visitors who Hock In on these excursions
with the city and the business houses
nnd lessens the fear of competition In
other larze cities. .
"I cannot sec but that it would be a
material gain to the lallroads. To say
nothing ot the Increased passenger tralllc,
much additional revenue would be de
rive.! from handling the goods purchased
In the city by the visitors, to be shipped
to their various homes. I know of no
movement that could be of greater bene
llt to the greater number than tho. Idea of
week day excursions to Kansas. City and
I sincerely hope that no ertort will be neg
lected to bring about a systematic series
of railroad excursions Into Kansas City
from all points within a radius of uOO or
1,000 miles of the city."
"I most heartily approve of the Idea,
said I.. It. Calm, manager of the May,
Stern A. Co. furniture company. "Hitherto
but few persons aside from tho nark own
ers, the street car companies and railroads
have derived any benellt from outside ex
cursions, for the reason that the great
majority ot them are only run on Sunday
rmd therefore are of absolutely no prolit
to the large majority of tho commercial
Interests of Kansas dUy. In the furniture
and carpet business personal selection of
purchases Is almost absolutely essential
and when you devise means to bring people
to Kansas City on week dnys you not only
benellt our business, but I don't suppose
there Is a store, factory or shop that would
not be greatly aided and encouraged by the
bringing Into our city men and women who
will patronize our Industries, Instead of
spending the day In idlv and fatiguing
pleasure nt tho parks or other places of
amusement. If excursions can be correct
ly managed It will be worth thousands of
dollars to the industries of Kansas City
without doing the slightest injury to any
business man In the city."
"J have half'a dozen letters from trades
people In Kansas," said Samuel Silverman,
of the tlrm ot Silverman liros., "who ask It
1 cannot keep my place of business open
on Sundav a short time, so that they can
avail themselves of tlie cheap rnllrond
rates to come to Kansas City anil at the
same time attend to a little business. If
theso excursions were run on week days
these nun would come up and buy, to our
prolit and their benellt. I remember that
on one occasion a blc excursion party
came to Kansas Citv from Silonm Springs
nnd our llrm sold J.'hiO worth of goods to
nic-n from that city lu the one day. It Is
a good movement and should meet the ac
tive co-operation of all who have the best
interests of Kansas City at heart."
"Too much encouragement cannot be giv
en to nn Idea of this kind." said I!. 11.
Williams. "It means much to every busi
ness man within the city. 1 cannot esti
mate the value of xnch a movement. The
true success of business Is to have a per
sonal aceiualntance with your customers
and these exclusions bring many to the
city whose trade Is worth having. 1 can
cite a number of Instances where sale's that
could not otherwise have been made have
been accomplished by means of the cheap
excursions that occasionally visit Kansas
City. A series of excursions on week days
would not only be Invaluable to every
business industry in Kunsas City, but tho
attractions or the city would be so adver
tised that those who came once will como

A Journal reporter called on Judge Wof

Democratic convention, and nskrd him It
he Intends to call tho convention together,
with n view to nn iidJustnipiiL ot tho
trouble now In Hie Demociatle cetiltnl
committee. He paid:
"1 hnvo not thought ot such n thing, and
ho onn has even mentioned it lu me,"
He wns then asked If thero could be no
contingency he would consider grave
enough to Justify tho caH ot that body
together. , ,
"I nm not prepared to say. for t haVo
given It no consideration at all. , .
"Hut suppose the committee splits up,
two heads and two bodies, then what
would you do?"
"I have no Idea that the committee will
split. Theto Is nothing to split nbout. It
Is simply a light for the machine and tho
bulge at next year's .nominating conven
tions. These same lights have always et
lted III both the great parties. The Demo
crats will wind up all right. Take the
men who common report puis at the head
of tlm two factions tcspctlvcly. Alnrcy
Hrown, Frank Johnson, Jim rendergnst,
the Fleming. Ilronough and otheis on one
side, nnd Shellev, Shannon, Latshnw, Hob.
Insoti, Con .Murphy, O'Neill, Stonestteet,
Crittenden nnd others on thn other; these
men all are good and trite! and when party
fealty Is reduced to Its Inst analysis, they,
all, are 'yaller dog Democrats.'. It will b;
Siberian weather when you llnd any of
these men allied with ltepiibllciins."
"Hut, excuse me, you hnvo not answered
the question: Are there no circumstances
under, which you would call the conwn-
"Whv. of course, there might bei but I
nm looking for no such contingency. '1 hern
might be circumstances under w-hlcli the
highest authority now uttnliiable would
have to be invoked for the. party's good.
Hut I lmve no Idea nny such contingency
will nrln. for I have absolute colilldcnei'
In the ultimate good, sense nnd lnyy of
Democrats. And whllo on this point It Is
not Inipmper to say that, while I did not,
lu nil Its details, agree with the Fettle
Springs convention, It set nn example that
might. If an extreme occasion called for It,
be followed by silliordlnato bodies of the
party. Hut 1 want to say again. I expect
to see sensn and reason and love or tlie
old party prevail."

were passed yesterday by tho Central W. C
1. V. of this city:
"Whereas, Nothing sooner low-era the
moral tone of a community than a disre
gard of law; and
"Whereas, Laws arc supposed to be nec
essary for the public welfare: therefore be It
"Hesolvid, That the Central W, C. T. U.
deplores a tendency on the part of some of
our leading city papers to depreciate the
Sunday closing law, declaring Its enforce
ment nn Impossibility, ami criticising our
public olllcers In their efforts to that end;
that we regard such sentiments as demor
alizing to tho unformed minds and morals
of youth and encouraging to lawbreakers,
and we maintain that a like attitude to
ward other crimes against the decalogue
would be deemed unworthy of any paper
representing respectable public opinion.
"Itesedved, That to Chief or l'olice Irwin,
for his attempts to enforce the Sunday clos
ing law against saloons; to Judge Jones,
for his prompt punishment of offenders, and
to each and nil of our patrolmen Injured or
Insulted while In discharge of duty, wo
tender our thanks, appreciation and sym
pathy. "Itesolved, That we call upon the church
