Bh-I-y Mason is reported as savins; that
there in no tax on water and that if there
were the republicans would have to pay
it all. And he might have said the same
tbinif. about wind, ae the republican! use
President Clev blank, we are tol l,
wai much disturbed about the surplus,
but, according to Billy Mason, the surplus
was no trouble to the republicans. They
found a means of getting rid of it and
would have done so had it been a hun
dred times as large.
Mr. Mason ir said to have been very
amusing at Moline when speaking about
raw material beinR admitted free. And
Mr. Ma.on is very amusing when he is
telling the people that the more they pay
in taxes the bctu-r they are off. Taken
altogether Mr. Mason is.'-anamoosin' little
Thk upholders of the McKinley bill, to
deceive the peoole,tke a small article and
show that It has only been increased a
few cents. They wish the people to close
their eyes to the fact that a few cents
may be two hundred per cent in some
cases. The two cents increase is just as
misleading as general verages.
It is said the president intends calling
a special st'Hbion of congress about No
vember 11, or as soon after the elections
are over as possible. Wonder if this wss
not done to accommodate Mr. Oest who
is in a feverish state to get that back pay
bill passed? If so it seems to show what
a grip our congressman has on the admin
istration. "Seemi, Madam, nay. it is."
TiiR New Orleans Timet- Democrat
says, speaking of the tariff iniquity:
"The reeking injustice of this measure
toward the consumers of the United
States, its glaring sectionalism, and its
rank and offensive favoritism toward the
manafacturers of the east, combine to
make it easily the most iniquitous fiscal
law that has ever been imposed by a nar
row minded and party-spirited covern
ment on an overburdened and long suN
Mason and the Union are in sore
trouble about Laving money locked up
in Washington instead of its being circu
lated freely among the people in busi
ness. This is their charge against the
lift administration. What is this ad
ministration doing? Taking the money
out of the pockets of the people when
they wish it to use in business and to bny
the necessaries of life, and putting it into
the pockets of the eastern mannfectnrers,
so that even the government gets but a
small portion of it. The high taxers are
the last people on earth who should talk
about letting money circulate among the
people. They steal it under a form of
law so that the millionaire manufacturers
of tho oast may get richer still, and then
prate about keeping the money in circu
lation. The republican "grand mass meeting,"
which was extensively advertised for last
Friday, did not prove very successful, ac
cording to -reports. Gov. Fifer, Con
gressman Oest, Hon. C. V. Chandler and
Captain J. M. Turnbull were all adver-.
tiscd to be present, but not one of them
put an appearance. Tbey secured a
couple of substitutes, however, as Hon.
Isaac Clements, government pension
agent at Chicago, and State Senator
Matthews, of Urbana, arrived from Peo
ria on the noon train and spoke in the af
ternoon. The crowd was estimated at
ten or twelve hundred, but the speakers
failed to create any enthusiasm. We
were out of town that day and failed to
secure any report of the speeches, but
leading democrats say there is no necess
ity for a meeting to counterbalance that
of the republican "grand rally. ' Kush

Kansas Citv, Oct 11. The president
yesterday spent another day of enthusias
tic receptions and speech making, and if
be was not weary when lie sought his
couch lost night it speaks well for his
endurance. The city of .St. Joseph was
reached at about 6:30 a. m. and early as
was the hour there was a great throng of
people awaiting him. As soon as he ap
peared a hearty cheer burst from the as
sembled thousands, and escorted by the
Custer Post G. A. K. he wa-s driven to a
hotel where he was introduced to the peo
ple. Ho made an address which rvaa fre
quently applauded, remarking as he faced
the people: "If you are glad to see me at
this hour iu the morning, if you are so
kind and demonstrative lsjfore breakfast,
how great would have lieen your welcome
if I could have come a little later in the
A kitn for a Itouqtiet.
The address tieitig over the party pro
ceeded to the railway station, where an
informal reception was held, and the
president shook hands with several hund
red people. Just before the train pulled
out little Allele. Hayes, the 4-year-old
niece of Colonel Dawes, presented the
president with a beautiful bouquet, and
was rewarded with a kiss from the na
tion's chief executive. At 7:30 the train
was again speeding on its way for Atchi
The Welcome at Atchison.
It is only monotonous iteration to say
that at the station at Atchison there woa
a tremendous throng, and that it cheered
it.self hoarse when the presidential train
pulled into the station. It was that way
everywhere, and all day. The first wel
come given was the official one by the
mayor, and following him came a crowd
of (.ehool children. As soon as quiet could
be obtained, little Edna I) .wnes was
raised above the heads of the crowd in the
arms of her teacher. In one band she held
a basket of flowers.
A lHminntlve Orator.
Heading from a type-written slip, she
said: "We come, President Harrison, rep
resenting our public schools and present
thest. flowers, bv little girls, one for each
state of our great union. These are our
emblems of purity, representing our love
and patriotism for the nation over which
you preside. In our public schiols, Mr.
President, is our hone and our pride. You
will not only find this true of Atchison,
but of all Kansas, and we trust the spirit
prevails the length and breadth of the
A Brier Address.
Tha president bowed his acknowledge
ments. Chief Justice Morton then intro
duced him to the audience, and the presi
dent delivered a short speech, referring to
the early battle against slavery in Ksnsas,
and congratulating the eople that they
had maintained the principles so much
blood had been shed for. Wishing the
people of the state every blessing of pros
perity and good government, he closed,
and a moment later the train was again
on its way.
Greeting by the Wayside.
At Nortonville there was a body of
school children again and a presidential
kiss was exchanged for a basket of flow
ers from a little girl. A short address
was made principally about public
schools. As the train polled out three
cheers were given for the president and
three more for Senator Ingalls, who with
Governor Humphrey had joined the par
ty. At Valley Falls the farmers turned
out en masse, but t here was -no time for
talking, except toreturn thanks for the
hearty welcome. A basket of huge ap
ples was banded to the president by M.
M. Maxwell, a farmer boy from Marion
county, ln I., the president's county, now
of Jefferson county, Kan.
THE ARRIVAL AT TOPEKA.
Incidents of the Slop at the Capital of
But one other stop was made before
reaching Topeka and t hat was a short one
at Meriden where the president went out
and boived his acknowledgement of the
greeting extended to him. The Topeka
railroad station was packed with people
when the president's train came in. The
local committee escorted the presidential
party to carnages. The president rode
iu the first carriage with Governor Hum
phreys. In the nex carriage were Sena
tor Ingalls and Secretary Tracy. The
party was driven to the state house. where
the president reviewed the parade of
soldiers. Krom the state house, the presi
dent was driven to the Coleman house
where luncheon was served, after which
the president gave a reception to the
memtiers of his old brigade.
A Visit to the Fair Ground.
After the reception the president went
to the fair grounds, where an immense
crowd had gathered. The jam was so
great that it was with the greatest diffi
culty that the president, t he governor and
Senator Inzalls pushed their way through
to the stand. It was !i 1" o'clock w lien Ira
F. Collins, department commander of the
Grand Army of the Kepublic introduced
Governor Humphrey. The governor said
that he was quite sure the H-s.-iubl.ige
did not care to hear from him while so
distinguished a guest was present. He
therefore without other preliminary in
troduced the president.
An Address to the Kansans.
The president was received with pro
longed cheering. He saitl that he was
strongly fr-mpte.l Dot to speak, but to go
home and write them an open letter, and
that he was profoundly impressed with
the tremendous (and as he was told un
precedented) gathering of soidieri and
citizens. The assemblage was too large;
one could not get his arms alH.ut iu
When he looked at the veterans assem
bled, and their sons and daughters, he
felt sure that the country's institutions
were safe for two generations, at least.
An Indiana Grievance,

It Is not unnatural that they .coming buck from
scenes where comrades hail shed their blood
for liberty, should choose to tind homes in a
state that had the buptiam of martyrs' blood
upon Its infant brow. Prolonged cheering.
A Word of Kueouragement.
After repeating in substance his plea
for obedience to law delivered at Gules
burg he started to close, but cries of "go
on. go on," arose and he ended his re
marks by saying:
1 hear there is some grumbling in Kansas
and 1 sometimes think it is Iterausc your ad

A Hush For the Htatinn.
It was after sche.lul.i time when the
president finished apeitking, but the peo
ple insisted on something from Senator
Ingalls. which he made very brief. The
party then hurried into carriages and
went back to the city and on to the rail
way station at a lively pace, and at a little
after 4 p. m. the locomotive woe annihi
lating time in an effort to reach Kansas
City by the card. At Lecompton the
train slowed up and the president bowed
to the people gathered there. At Law
rence there was a brass band of Indian
boys who were playing as the train d rew up
A short welcome from the mayor and a
short response from the pretident, a few
hundred hand-shakes and away sped the
KANSAS CITY'S WELCOME.
An Uproarious and Enthusiastic Greeting
to the President.
Behind time three-quarters of an hour
the party was landed at Kansas City. It
took a deal of trouble for the two compa
nies of the Third regiment doing escort
duty to keep the enthusiastic crowd from
fairly overwhelming the distinguished
party. In carriages and through streets
lined with people shouting their welcome
the party was finally deposited at tie en
trance of the Coates house, where they re
tired to rooms prepared for then . and
rested a few minutes, then going to the
private diuing room, where dinner was
Dinnrr at the Coates House.
The president sat at the head of tl e ta
ble, with Maj. Warner and Gen. Smith at
his left hand and ex-Mayor Allen and
Mayor Holmes on his right. The secrotaiy
of the navy sat at the foot of thetsble,
with ex Governor Crittenden and Mr.
Nave. The president excused hit lself
after the second course. In leaving he
said that he was sorry to cause even this
temporary interruption, but all win Id
understand his desire to pass a few h mrs
under his brother's roof. He veryi nch
appreciated, he said, the hospitality ol the
business men of Kansas City. He had
never visited the city ls-fore, but he had
heard of it. It had been well advertised,
laughter and applause. He could see
by the dim light of the streets as he tlrave
through that it realized all that was
claimed for it. Applause In conclu
sion he would say that lie hoped all of its
dreams would be realized.
A Visit to His Brother.
The president then retired from he
room and leaving the hotel, was driven to
the home of his brother, John Hamsun,
w here he spent more than an hour. In
the meantime at the dinner Secretary
Tracy in response to a toast spoke of
Kansas City as the empire city of the
Mississippi valley. Speaking of the de
velopment of tiie navy he said that he
believed there was a general dema id
among the American people for its in
crease and improvement. His predeces
sor had had the assistance of both Demo
crats and Republicans iu carrying out a
policy of improvement and he was glad
to say that his experience had been the
same. Prolonged applause.
Kereptlon at the Hoard of Trade.
The president came to the hotel before 9
o'clock and accompanied the party lo the
lioanl of trade. The crowd gither.-.l
there was i iioriuous and the prei.lei t
was crowded and jostled a great .leal a-i
he went up the steps. When he reached
the head of the great stairway he was
warm and tired anil in no condition t
sjienk. So when the assemblage lielov.
called for a speech and would not lie sat
istied without it he simply thanked th
people of Kansas City for the ..r.lialit
of their reception. The presid-nt then
stood for halt an hour at the head of the
stairway wh.le the crowd came up oie set
of steps and. shaking hands with him, went
down i he other stairway.
Kii Koute for Kt. L.ouis.
The crush was fearful and several la
dies fainted from the intense heat. A lit
tie liefore 10 p. in. the president an
nounced that he must go and the recep
tion was cut short. The president was
met at toe station by a party of diatin
guished St. Lotiisaiis. w ho were to act as
the escort to their city. Shortly after 10
o'clock the president' train left Kansas
City for St. I.uis.

Mr. Spalding said that the National

Chicago, Oct. 11. A vicious blow with
the fist, a momentary struggle of excited
men, and the sudden appearance of two
policemen caused somewhat of a sensa
tion on the board- of trade yesterday
morning. It was only a ripple in the
day's proceedings and, though it oc
curred in less than a minute, it was the
lost act in the story of n false wife and a
wronged husband. The day's business
had ju-t begun, and there was a big
crowd of excited men struggling about
the w heat pit when Dan Storm walked
up behind a man who was talking with a
friend near one of the sample taoies. A
moment later he drew back aud struck
the man a heavy hlow on the left cheek.
The injured man was O. K. Van Winkle
and his assailant a clerk in a commission
Of Course It's a Woman.
Mrs. Van Winkle, or rather the woman
who up to Thursday was Mrs. Van Win
kle, was the cause of the trouble. She is
young and attractive, and at present lives
at 814!) Indiana avenve, and, it is rumored,
is in a short time to become Mrs. Storm.
Mr. Van Winkle h is no objection to this
proceeding, and, in fact, would i; rather
glad to see the couple married. Mr. Van
Wiukle had been married some time when
he discovered that his wife was not true
to him. That was about three years ago.
After thoroughly satisfying himself on
this point he left her and commenced suit
for divorce on the ground of infidelity,
and then went to live in California.
Gave Them a Tongne Lashtntr.
Mr. Van Winkle had been told repeat
edly by friends that Storm and the wo
man were intimate, but the fact did not
bother him much, though, of course, it
was somewhat annoying. While he was
willing that Storm should enjiy himself
as much as he wanted to Mr. Van Winkle
determined to give him a verbal scoring
whenever they should meet The divorce
case coming up he returned to this city to
attend it.. Then he watched for an oppor
tunity to speak a piece of bis mind. The
first opportunity he secured was on Mon
day, when he met his wife and Storm on
a street corner. Van Winkle walked over
to them and in plain words told the couple
what he thought of them. Storm made,
no response, but endured the tongue-lashing
Interested No Longer.
Thursday he secured a divorce, and as
the woman was no longer his wife, paid
no attention to her intimacy with Storm.
The next time they met was on the floor
of the board of trade, when Storm coming
up behind Van Winkle, struck him, near
ly knocking him down, it was a terrific
blow, but it left no bruise on Mr. Van
Winkle's face. When Mr. Van Winkle
recovered from the effects of the assault,
and gots his wits together again, his first
impulse was to strike back. It was too
late, however, for a criw.I of startled
traders rushed bdweeu him an i Storm
and effectually prevented any further dis
turbance. Not Quite Satisfactory Vet.
Mr. Van Winkle is not very well satis
fied with the end of his family trouble.
He is heartily glad that he is rid of the
voman, tint he does not like to be struck
and not have a chance to return the
blow, lie invited Mr. Storm to step out
Mdethe board of trade and resat the
I low, but the latter declined. So
the fight was not continued. It probably
v ill not lie, as Mr. Van Winkle declares
fiat he is really sorry for Mr. Storm.

y.T. Van Winkle, "but I am afraid he
ill be sadly disappointed in her."

A Mighty struggle with Fate.
The justi.e, a man of determination,
with a mighty effort attempted to drag
himself along. He perhaps would have
succeeded, but at this point he had to
cross a street car track paved with cobble
stones, f pon these he stumbled, reeled
and almost fell. He recovered himself,
however, and, seemingly aware of ap
proaching unconsciousness, again put for
ward an effort to reach his door-way .now
only twenty yards distant. Unconscious
ness overcame him, however, at this mo
ment and upon the rough cobble-stone of
the carriageway leading to his residence
the justice fell, his whole leftside paral
yzed. He fell upon his face, which was
badly cut by the rough stones.
Carried Into His House.
All this time his body servant had stood
in the doorway, not noticing that Justice
Miller was approaching, and not until
the justice fell, was he aware of his pres
ence. He immediately hurried to his as
sistance, and with the help of others, lift
ed Justice Miller up the terraoed stepa
leading to his residence. When pirked
up he was totally unconscious. After
being conveyed to his room, he partially
regained conscious, and later on, after the
physicians who had been summoned had
administered medicines, he wholly re
covered consciousness. ILs left side,
however, still remained numb, and his left
limbs were useless.
Hut Little Hope of Recovery.
His articulation, while it could be un
derstood, was thick ami heavy. He is now
resting easily, but a return of the paraly
tic stroke at any moment may carry him
off. He seems to realize, as do his fam

but little hois of recovery. His son. Mr.
S. F. Miller, Jr., said to the United Press
representative that because of the ad
vanced aire of his father, the family en
tertained but linle hope of his recovery.
Paraly-os, he said, ran in the family, and
an aunt on his father's side, had died of

times had had premonitions of his ap
His First Stroke.
The fact that this was the first stroke,
lent some little hope that his father's life
might be spared for several years to come.
All the evening and late into the night
friends crowded the residence, inquiring
as to Justice Miller's condition. Justice
Miller was born in Richmond, Ky., April
5, 116. In 102 he was appointed by lres
ident Lincoln associate justice of the
United States supreme court.
In a Critical Condition.
At a late hour last night Justice Mil
