Xew York, March 31. Jerry Simpson.
The Sockless." the Farmers' Alliance
congressman from Kansas, -1 J. B.
Weaver, of Iowa, iu nominal ion as the
presidential candidate of the Alliance in
l9i, in a conversation with a reporter
yoterday, Simpson said, as he named the
I.nva man, that he did notthi.ik the Al!i
aiice officials had organized any well de
fined boom for Weaver, but v. seemed to
him that Weaver was the most available
and probable candidate. The Kansas con
Kressman had just come from New En
land, w here he had been inautruratinf;"'
movement designed to bring the grar
organization to consolidate or fuse itself
into the Alliance, became a political or
ganization, and back up the third party iu
The Alliance "Hon ml to Win."
Mr. Simpson took, h very rosy view of
the campaign which ti e Alliance would
make in 1S.. He predicted nothinq si:ort
of victory for the new parry. He said
that he thought the si-ns ail pointed in
that direction. "We could carry at least
ten southerutates to-day." he said. "Some
of the western states, which narrowly es
caped us at the last election, would lie
carried by the Alliance to-day, and with
the work in the east, which k goin on so
rapidly, I look to see an Alliance president
elected in lS!)i In Kansas we have an
election this year for county officers, and
we shall carry them all. That will give
us the control of the macbinr, which will
bs a great help.
Thinks Ingalls Will Come In.
"Mr. Ingalls' remark that a political
party is like an army strongest when
finest organized is true. It, is a great
thing to control the local offi. es. That is
what the Alliance is trying for first. We
want the machine."
Will Mr. Ingalls reappe.ir in active
fcI think so, and I think he will come to
the Alliance," replied the Kausas niau.
"He is smart enough to know which way
the tide is running. I look to see him
asking to be admitted to the Alliance,
and if he does we shall v elcome him
THE NEGRO IS COMING ON.
America's Tress "Menlor'a" Reflections
on the i:iack Man.
Jacksonville, Fla , Marclx 31. In aa
interview with a local reporter Editor
Dana, of The New York Sua, was asked
what he thought of the future of the ne
gro. He said: "You must re nember that
the white men are if Aryan breed and
have been engaged in political ameliora
tion and intellectual pursuits for more
than 5,000 years. The negro, on the other
band, has been engaged in these only a
little ever a century 125 years. If you
expect them to achieve a decree of prog
ress in character and refint-ment iu li
years when the whites have used 5,000
years to accomplish this, you will be
greatly disappointed. At tht; end of 2,000
years he will be up to us iu everything.
One KITect of Freed
"I think they have improve 1 immensely.
One great improvement is in the purifica
tion of the breed. They are getting
blacker, an evidence that freedom pro
duces purity. What strikes me
most in the south is the tot al disappear
ance of all things connected 'viththe civil
war. The war seems to have sunk into
oblivion, and I sometimes doubted that
there ever was a war, as no reference was
made to it. This is a mo-t gratifying
progress of public sentiment toward the
grand unification of the country. Every
one seems to be imbued with patriotism."
GUS LEMCKE DECLINES.
He Cannot Accept the Tnitetl State
Washington Citt, March 3L Mr. Ju
lius A. Lemcke, of Indiana, whose name
has been Hnder consideration by the pres
ident for the position of United States
treasurer, in case the resignation of Treas
urer Huston was accepted, has informed
the president through a frieud that he
does not desira to have his name consid
ered in connection with the place, as his
health is such that he could not possibly
accept it if it were tendered him. Mr.
Lemcke will sail for Europe within a few
days. This leaves the question of the
treasurership in the same position it has
been for some time. The impression pre
vails that efforts are being tr ade to adjust
the differences between the president and
Huston, and that they are likely to be
successful and that Huston will serve out
his term of four years.
Women Interested in Politics.
ToPEKA, Kan., March 31. Great inter
est is manifested in the municipal elec
tions in the large cities of Kansas, which
are held on April 7. In these elections
women over the age of 21 are qualified
voters. In Topeka, Kansas City, Wichita,
Atchison, and Fort Scott thi registration
has b en heavy, and many women have
taken advantage of this right and en
rolled their names on tho registration
books. In Topeka the tot al is 9,091, of
which 2,745 are women. Th s exceeds any
. former year.
Democratic Scheme in Ohio.
COLCMBUS, O., March 3:. The Demo
crats intend this week to pass the Bu
chanan bill, which provides for the choice
of presidential electors by congressional
districts, instead of at large as at present.
They propose also to reapportion the state
for representation in the leg slature. The
senate will be so arranged, it is said, that
the Republicans will not be likely to gain
control of that body during the next de
cade and they expect to electlif teen pres
idential electors in 1892.

Kansas Citv, Mo.. March Sl.-Jn.tiw
Garihom and the manner i i which his
office has been run in the biggest just ire
of the peace district in Kansas City are
subjects of universal gossip. Mouday po
lice officers were looking for him w ith a
warrant charging him with embezzling
toS which he had collected on a judg
ment. When last seen he was rounding
up fs iiith Grand avenue with his court
attaches, all of whom were intoxicated.

WHICH WAS THE HEATHEN?
Disgrarelnl Cnduct of American " Sov
ereign" at a Chinese Funeral.
PiTTsni'KG, March 31. Sunday after
noon Jeu Seu was buried with every rite
and observance attending Chinese obse
quies. Jeu Seu was a high Mason, and a
long procession of Celestials followed the
remains to the grave. A most disgraceful
scene ensued, brought about by some
1,500 American citizens.who tramped over
graves, tore down shrubbery and jostled
the timid mourners in order to gratify
Kegalar Grave Robbers Were They.
The Chinese reverently placed burn
ing joss sticksj perrumod paper and print
ed prayers beside the grave, only to have
them almost snatched out of their hands
by the excited mob. . They also wrapped
small coins in paper and scattered them
on and in the grave, but boys and men
snatched them up, and fought fiercely for
possession of the curious mementoes.
Cat-calls, jeers and howls from the vulgar
crowd added to a shameless scene that
Pittsburg heartily condemns, the excuse
beinsthat the riotous crowd was only
made up of the idle and lawless.

Jury Bribery at Chicago.
Chicago, March 31. Martin C. Shannon
and John J. Hopper, real estate dealers,
were arrested yesterday for complicity in
a case of attempted jury bribing. Hopper
confessed his guilt, and although he told
a story that apparently left no hope for

against him. In a damage case against
