Republican County Convention. A delegate convention of the Republican party of Trego county will be held at the court house in Wa-Keeney, Kansas, on Saturday, August 30, 1890, nt 2 o'clock P. M., for the purpose of electing two delegates to the State Convention to be held in To peka September 3, 1890. It is recommended that tho primary elections for the selection of delegates to said convention be held on Friday, August 29, 1890, at 3 o'clock P. M., In pach township, at such "places as the Bepublican fownshlp committee may designate. The representation agreed upon by the County Central Committee shall be on delegate at large for each township and one delegate for every 15 votes cast at the November, 1E8S, election for Hon. William Biggins, Seretary of State, under which apportionment the several townships will be en titled to delegates as follows: Collyer- - - - 6 Glencoe 3 -RIvnrciriA - . - 4 WillcOX - - 3 PrnnHln ... 3 Offallah . - 6 Wa-Keeney 14 By order of the Bepubllcan County Central Com mittee. S. B. Cowick, Chairman, M. W. Clitt, Secretary. The financial condition of Kan sas makes a better showing since the census report of 1890 than any other ivestern state. The Wilson bill has become a law, the President baring affixed his signature thereto. The Missounans doina business in Kansas have packed up their effects and sadly re turned home. The experiment of forcing a traffic, wheh is generally ppposed by public sentiment, upon a people, has not been profitable to the original package dealer. They have been harrassed by litigation and have met with determined op position in every community. From a financial standpoint, tne Dusmess has been a signal failure. The following resolution was adotited bv the Republican conven tion at Dodge City. There is 'just about the difference 'twixfc tweedle dum and tweedle dee as there is be tween this resolution and the one adoDted bv the Alliance convention at Hill City, forbidding the candi date to caucus with either of. tne old parties: We congratulate our ecnators and members of congress upon the bold and patriotic eland they have taken upon the financial and other questions orrpeclal importance to tho West, and ye hereby absolve the nominee of this convention from tne nietaaoa or party caucus upon au econuuuu ocr. We btd him enter the halls of congress a free man tt V4.1t rm. fh. wfm4T nrwt mf?1Mai interests US weU as the. moral and political welfare of this intiH!Vt PEOPLE'S PARTY CONVENTION. Topeka, Kan., Aug. 13. The state convention of the People's par ty assembled this f jorning at ten o'xilockj in Representative hajl, with about 400 delegates present. Near ly every county, jejecept in the west ern pari of the state, was repre sented. The meeting was called to order by J. F. Willels, chairman of the state centra" committee. Prayer was offered by 0. W. Jones, of But ler county, and, under the leadersh of Mr. Jones, the convention sang ''America." Mr. Willets was made temporary chairman and Ben. C. Rich, of Trego county, temporary secretary. Mrs. M. E. Lease, of Wichita, was introduced and addressed the con vention for half an hour, on the sub ject of temperance. She said that prohibition was an issue of no con sequence. C. A. Power, of Indiana, was in troduced and spoke on the subject of pension legislation. Before he began speaking the chairman asked all old soldiers in the convention to arise and about fifty responded. Mr. Power said he had been a Republi can a good many years, but he was now done with the party. The Har rison administration had been against service pensions because it would not please Wall street inter ests. He charged that the Republi can administration was granting five times as many pensions in doubt ful states as in Kansas and other states where it was'assured of a ma jority. He said there was no man in the United States congress who had more shamefully betrayed the old soldiers than John J. Ingalls. The convention then adjourned to one o'clock. Robinson's strength decreasing. There is a growing sentiment against the nomination of Robinson because of his ultra anti-prohibition views. Many of the delegates are Prohibitionists, and. while they are willing to ignore the question of prohibition in their platform, the' will not submit to the nomination of a man who is outspoken against prohibition. On the other hand Robinson declares he will not stand as a candidate on any platform which embraces anything but the St. Louis platform. There is a very respectable follow ing for J. F. Willets, of Jefferson county, for Governor. He is a pro hibitionist and would satisfy that element. Leading Democrats are here in the interest of Robinson. A dele gation from Leavenworth headed by Ed. Carroll is doing some earnest work for him. If J. F. Willets is not nominated for Governor he will be chosen for Lieutenant-Governor. There seems to be no definite strength worked up for any other person for any other office. The convention did not reassem ble until two o'clock. The hall was crowded to its utmost capacity, a large number of delegates having ar rived on the noon trains. Over 500 spectators, including prominent Republicans and Demo crats, were also present. The committee on permanent or ganization presented a report recom mending P. P. Elder, of Franklin county, who was the Union Labor party's candidate for Governor two years ago, for permanent chairman, Ben. C. Rich, of Trego county, for permanent secretary, and J. B. Cald well, of Sedgwick county, for assist ant secretary. Alliance Resolutions. In the report of the proceedings of the Marshall County Alliance we find the following: "We passed so resolutions; we mean business." We wish more of our sub and county alliances w.ould get down to business on the same basis. The St. Louis demands are all the resolu tions we need at this time. Let us all get squarely upon these demands and stand there, refusing to add or abate a word or sylable. Upon this platform let us win or lose. If we refuse to consider other issues, or permit our attitude to be diverted from these by the persistent efforts and cunning schemes of the enemy, our position is invulnerable and the powers of hell cannot prevail against us. Alliance Advocate. ' The convention of Republican colored people met at Salina August 11th and selected John L. Waller, of Wyandotte, to be presented to the state convention as a suitable person for State Auditor. Trego County Alliance. The Trego County Alliance met last Saturday, August 9th, to can vass the vote of the sub-alliances for nominees for county offices. No candidate for representative had a majority of all the votes cast and therefore there was no nomination. The two names re ceiving the highest number of votes will be returned to the sub-alliances for another vote. I, L. McGarvie and R. G. Kessler were the highest. The same thing occurred in the offices of district clerk and superin tendent of schools. For district clerk A, W. Purinton and W. D. Matthews received the highest vote and the contest is now between these two. For superintendent of schools Miss Cooper and J. F. Barclay will be the contestants. Capt. Welch received the nomina tion for probate judge, S. R. Cow-? ick for county attorney and D. Per shing: for commissioner of the sec ond district. In the third district there was no choice, C. C. Ridgway and L. Warne having the highest number of votes. It will be several weeks yet before the whole ticket will be nominated.
