Topeka, Kan.. Sept. 9. At the recent
Republican League convention a commit
tee was appointed . to answer the state
ment made by the leaders of the People'a
party with reference to the credit of Kan
sas. This committee In the report which
was issued yesterday acknowledges that
the state has always been a borrower, bat
ays that the debts stand for investments,
and not for losses. They represent enter
yrise, not misfortune, and they will be
paid to the last cent. Official reports frcm
sixty counties of the state show that dur
ing the last three months there was a net
redaction In mortgage indebtedness of
those counties of f53O,0oa.
Over lOO.OOO, 000 for Farmers. -After
estimating the returns from the
year's crops the report says the farm
ers of the state will have tl04.000.003
as the net result of the year's work. The
report concludes: "Some of this large
' profit will be added to our permanent
eapital, but most of it will be employed
In liquidating indebtedness. The balance
of trade is so largely in our favor that the
early extinguishment of all our debts is
certain. It should be understood abroad,
as it is known at home, that the only ad
vocates of repudiation, either by intrieue
or artifice, are adherents of the People's

Fassett the Probable Nominee for the
Rochester, N. Y., Sept. 9 The dele
gates to the Republican state convention
were gathering htrre all day yesterdny,
last night anil this morning, and a warm
canvass has been going on ever since by
the friends of the different candidates for
governor Fassett, White, AVadsworth
and Becker (of Buffalo). The Fassett
men had everything their own way early
in the day, and it looked like nomination
by acclamution. But the boom had a set
back as evening came on. It had been a
matter of speculation all day whether the
name of any other candidate would be
presented to the convention. A general
belief prevailed early that Mr. White's
name would not be put before the con
vention, but his friends insisted that it
would, and that a test of his strength
would be made, if only out of compliment,
one of Them Will Withdraw.
Then Wads worth's friends announced
that he was in the light to stay, and so did
Becker's. Tuis knocked into "pi-1 all idea
of a unanimous nomination, but suoa
prominent men as ex-Senator Piatt, ex
Btate Senator Gibbs, and others said posi
tively that Fassett was the coming man.
There was an anti-Fassett air about the
delegates during the early evening, and
many were Baying that there would ba a
dark horse, but that did Dot trouble toe
friends of Fassett, who still insisted that
he would be nominated. It became gen
erally known late at night that White
GIVING ADVICE TO CLEVELAND.
Citizen Jones Warns Hiin to Steer Clear
of Mr. Flower.
BlXGHAiiPTOX. X. Y., Sept. 9. The Hus
bandman has the following open letter
addressed by a Binghampton man to Hon.
Grover Cleveland: "Sir: Excuse my ad
dressing you through the press, but as the
subject considered is one in which the
public is greatly interested, I deem it
proper to do so. It is understood that you
are a candidate for the presidential nomi
nation in 1MI2. This renders it not only
proper, but incumbent upon you to tat i
all honorable means to protect your inter
ests, and prevent your friends from com
plicating you in alliances which may re
sult to your injury. Yonr friend are
taking active interest in our state cam
paign, and are freely using your name in
their support of Mr. Flower.
Most Cnltivate the Masses.
"You Btrengtb as a presidential candi
date lies in your strength with the masses,
the wage earners, the toilers and pro
ducers. They are a large majority of the
-people of this couutry, and they are not
la sympathy with the class of people
whom Mr. Flower represents. The move
ment 'along the line' manifesting itself in
alliances, leagues, various combinations
and organizations, as well as the free ex
pressions of the people in 'daily talk,' is a
protest against the aggressive power of
wealth, now accomplishing its purpose by
its free use in debauching the political
morals of the people. Yours truly,
Edwakd F. JoXES."
Jerry Simpson and Thurston.
Chicago, Sept. 9. Congressman Jerry
- Simpson had an exciting impromptu de
bate with Judge John M. Thurston, of
Omaha, in the rotunda of the Grand Pa
cific yesterday, which was enjoyed by a
crowd of nearly 100 people. Simpson pro
ceeded to tell Judge Thurston that the
farmers of Kansas were starving to death,
and in debt about foOO per capita. This
be said was due to just such
grinding monopolies as were rep
resented by Judge Thurston. The
litter replied that all this, if true,
was the fault of the farmers themselves
who got in debt merely because people
wanted to loan them money. Simpson's
reply, to this was that Thurston's iguor
nce about farms would prevent him
(Simpson) from talking with him longer,
to which the judge calmly answered that
be was born on a farm, knew more about
farming, and could do more with a plough
than Simpson ever did or would.

months will not justify, aud especially in
one holding the responsible position of
chief executive of the city and an office
bearer in a Christian church.
Asks Everybody's Forgiveness.
"I have earnestly aked God's forgive-"
ness, and I here publicly and bumbly ask
the forgiveness of the citizens of Xew

lice to see that I pay the penalty for a vio

pect and readily concede Mr. Leslie's
right to proreed against me under the
commonwealth laws. For the wrong, I
lereoy ask his forgiveness, notwithstand
ing the oft-repeated and, in my judgment,
uncalled-for provocation. Regretting
