TO BE A RATE DISTURBER
THE POSITION OF THE CLOVER LEAF
3IAY LEAD TO A RATE AVAR.
Rondii Have Not Profiled, am Expected,
by I'olltlcnl Knlllc-St. Paul Ad
vances I'ar of Engineer.
The Toledo, St. Louis & Western with
drawing from the eastbound freight com
mittee at St. Louis is interpreted by traf
fic men as a very clear Intention on the
part of the management to unscrupulously
cut freight rates, which it could hardly
do without getting into serious trouble if
Its membership were maintained. To carry
out a policy of this character with Impun
ity would necessitate the taking of this
step. The closing of the road's Eastern
agencies, as was predicted, has seriously
cut down its westbound tonnage. It was
Intimated at the time the new manage
ment took hold that it was determined to
have business, and if it could not be ob
tained in the manner proposed without
continuing the Eastern soliciting force
drastic measures would be adopted to com
pel recognition from connections. It Is
understood that the meeting called in St.
Louis by President Ingalls, of the Big
Four, is to consider the stand the Clover
Leaf has taken in withdrawing from the
freight committee at St. Loul and Its In
timation that hereafter It would be a free
lance in rates. Should the road assume a
stubborn and arbitrary position and make
unreasonable demands. It Is anticipated, It
will certainly lead to an ugly rate war
that is likely to affect passenger as well
as freight business. There is a belief that
the road at present is working with
scalpers and the charge does not appear
to have ever been denied or controverted.
Campaign Travel Disappointing.
Passenger officials of railroads operating
In the central "West, generally 'peaking,
are disappointed at the financial showing
thus far made in connection with the run
ning of special trains for political rallies.
The roads of Indiana, which has been one
of the principal stumping grounds for both
the Democratic and Republican campaign
ers, and which has been the scene of more
political demonstrations than any other
State in the Union, possibly, with the ex
ception of New York, are disappointed.
Some of the roads made elaborate prepara
tions for the multitudes expected to swarm
from points away from the rallying
pound, setting aside coaches which might
have been used for other excursion pur
poses and increasing the number of agents.
A Good Month on the llelt Bond.

THE HICKORY ELM CLUB.
Roundup by Col. Snort Importance of
the Campaign Lie.
Colonel Snort was the first man on tho
floor when the club had been called to
crder. Said he: "Gentlemen, as vice chan
cellor of this club it Is my duty to warn
every member here who is earnestly and
dishonestly advocating the election of Mr.
Bryan that the time for lying representa
tions and political roorbacks is growing
exceedingly short, and It therefore be
comes the duty of every Bryan Democrat,
who expects to again place the country In
Jeopardy by the success of the party at
the polls next Tuesday, to put in circula
tion all the false, malicious and outrageous
reports, rumors and stories that it is possi
ble to dig up invent or conceive against
the opposition that will In any .way tend
to excite, . inflame or Influence ths Ignor
ant and vicious classes of society to sup
port the candidates of our party. Already
the Democratic bureau of information has
launched the report that Grover Cleveland
intends to vote for Bryan and that he has
said that there will be a landslide to him
at the polls. This false and improbable
story should be spread irt ajl the Demo
cratic precincts of the towns and cities of
the country, before Mr. Cleveland can
have time to head It off with one of his
"Senator Fairbanks is saying in his
speeches that no man is fit to be President
who urged the ratification of the treaty
with Spain which gave us the Philippine
Islands and then gave as a reason that he
believed that by ratifying It," we (mean
ing the Bryan Democracy) would be In a
better position to wage a successful con
tent against imperialism than we would
have been had the treaty been . rejected.
because, with the treaty ratified, a clean
cut Issue Is presented between a govern
ment by consent and a government by
force. It Is said that Senator Fairbanks
takes the skin off Mr. Bryan on this prop
osition, and shows him up in his true light
as a trickster and an unconscionable dem
agogue, incapable of entertaining a high
Idea of patriotism, and unworthy to be
mentioned In connection with the office of
President. This is a serious arraignment
of our candidate, and the charges must be
met by a prompt and shameless denial."
Colonel Garlic That puts us on the de
fensive. Colonel Snort. We ought not to
waste time in that way. I think it would
bo better to be aggressive by going after
the enemy with trumped-up charges of
fraud and corruption. We can't stop to
answer the charge that Bryan Is a political
fraud and a self-admitted humbug; that
Croker is a political pirate; that Indiana
Democratic managers intend to buy up
election boards and hire men to stay away
from the polls or intimidate and prevent
them from voting by pulling a receipt for a
dollar received in consideration of a vote
for Bryan; that Altgeld is an Anarchist;
that Tillman is a nigger killer, or that
Goebel stole the governorship of Kentucky.
In other words, we will have no time to
undertake to make a favorable showing for
Bryanism, Taggartlsm, Crokerism, Altgeld
lsm, Tlllmanlsra and Goeuells::i against
Colonel SnortWho said anything about
making a defense or a favorable snowing?
I merely said that we should deny the
charges that are being hurled against Bry
an and his political satellites in this cam
paign. It would be useless to undertake to
explain to intelligent people the necessity
for turning over the affairs of the Demo
cratic party to Croker and his crowd, even
if we had time, and I am riot prepared to
say that we are not playing. in great luck
to be able to plead want of time. Gentle
men, ' the fight of Bryan Democracy Is
against the allied forces of wealth and in
dustry In this country which Is crushing
the very life out, of the organization to
which wo belong. The Republicans are
scaring and intimidating the old women
and the young orphans of the land by
showing them what the consequences will
be to their slender surplus In the savings
bank if Bryan is elected and begins to get
tid of the gold standard. Clerks, me
chanics and day laborers are made to see,
and have become convinced that Bryan's
election would mean lower salaries for all
and no employment for many that are now
enjoying a degree of prosperity they never
enjoyed before. Employes are compelled
by the consent of their wives and little
ones to march in Republican parades and
hurrah for McKinley and Roosevelt, en
joying much needed exercise in the open
air. away from the dust of the factory
and the foul smell of dyestuffs in the dry
goods store. The dollar is put before the
man whero he is made to hustle for It, and
when he overtakes it finds that it takes
four of them to buy five bushels of wheat
of the proud and boastful Kansas farmer.
Tho price of money has got so low under
McKinley's administration that the retired
saloon keeper on fcVi.OuO is unable to live on
the interest. The Dlngley tariff has dumped
into this country a balance from foreign
trade that has astounded the world and
will sooner or later breed a spirit of envy
and jealousy in Europe and Aguinaldo that
will result in more bloody war. It is upon
these lines that we must attack the enemy.
Ami we must not forget Mark Hanna. the
great Republican bull's-eye for the shafts
and arrows of Bryanoeracy In this cam
paign. Let every man do his full Demo
cratic duty from now until the polls close.
If he can get a fact that can be twisted and
distorted into a campaign lie let him send
it forth upon its proper mission, and if we
do not win we will have the proud satisfac
tion of knowing that our reputation for po
litical sagacity, rascality, chicanery and
smooth work has not been impaired by our
efforts. W. S. II.
WANTS TO BE NATURALIZED.
Ikko 3IntKUntotnfl Application .Now
Ikko Matsumoto. the well-known Japa
nese jeweler, yesterday applied to v Judge
Carter, of the Superior Court, for his sec
ond naturalization papers. The judge now
has the matter under advisement and is
looking up all the authority available to
ascertain if Matsumoto can become a citi
zen of the United States under the present
law. The United States statutes provide
for the naturalization of white men or
the Caucasian race, and also the black or
African race, but nothing is said about the
Mongolian. Unless Matsumoto can be tias
ificd with either of these two he cannot
become a citizen of the United States.
Judije Carter regretted very much to
deny the papers for the time being and
said there was certainly some way out of
it. lie at once began to search the volumes
of law books In his office and the library to

and the investigation of the Hlgglns
case was practically susper ded. About
all the evidence the grand jury expects Is

ing until Hanch comes in or another Juror
Is appointed to make a report.
Judge Alford, of the Criminal Court, said
he would give Hanch until next Wednes
day to come in, and if he is not able to at

be discharged and another member will be
appointed in his place. Prosecutor Pugh
has the minutes of the grand Jury in such
shape that it will take but a few minutes
to read all the necessary evidence to a new
juror. He says a report can be made in
two hours If the absent member of the jury
This preparation of the testimony and
the manner In which it appears to be con
densed is taken to mean that there is some
strong evidence against HIggins unknown
to the public sufficient to warrant an in
dictment against him. One thing is certain,
tho testimony has been of such a nature
that Hlgglns has either been deeply incrim
inated or he will go scot free, otherwise
points of so much significance could not be
presented in a few minutes. From the at
titude of the grand jury It is believed Hig-
gins will be indicted.
While there was no apparent action yes
terday, the grand jury was trying to get
more information regarding the "account"
Hlgglns has chalked up against the Indiana
Brewers Association. The unprecedented
number of brewery ordinances, that have
been presented to the Council in the last
year has led the grand jury to believe there
is room for more investigation. Hlgglns
especially has been active in promoting or
killing these ordinances, but the only tan
gible story the jury has to Investigate is
the charge that the Brewers Association
gave him money for his. "influence" or
vote. Albert Liebler has not yet returned
to the city, and nothing tangible could be
learned about the rumor that he held Hig-
gins's receipt for $100.

The Supreme Court Attain Interprets
It Other Cae.
The Supreme Court yesterday affirmed
the Judgment in the case of Annie E. Tay
lor against the city of Crawfordsville, re
fusing to enjoin the improvement of a
street in Crawfordsville, and incidentally
upholding the Barrett law. Judge Baker
filed a dissenting opinion.
The case of William T. Melott and Oliver
M". Gardner against Charles M. Messmore
was filed on appeal In the Supreme Court
yesterday. Messmore in his complaint
claimed that he had been deceived Into
deeding his property to Melott & Gardner
in exchange for 1,000 acres of land in Ten
nessee. The lower court ordered his prop
erty restored to him.
An appeal was filed in the Supreme
Court from an order granting a license to
George II. Ferguson to keep a saloon at
Norman Station, Jackson county.

DEFAULTED DIVORCE CASES.
They Will Be Tried ott Friday by
To-day Judge Leathers will adopt a new
rule for hearing divorce suits. Hereafter,
the first Friday of each month will be de
voted entirely to hearing default cases.
Judge Leathers has already denied two
divorces under this new plan and to-day
promises to be an interesting session.
The other day a case was set for trial
but the judge declined to hear it until the
defendant was present. She lives In Chi
cago. The Judge sent her a telegram, ask
ing her if she wished to enter an appear
ance, and a reply was at once received In
tho affirmative and saying she would be
here this morning. Judge Carter also
thinks of setting apart one day each
month for hearing default cases.
The Judges hopo to direct the attention
of the Legislature this winter to this kind
of divorce suits, and have a law enacted
that will provide compensation for the
prosecuting attorney to defend all such
cases. At the last session of the General
Assembly a bill of this nature was pre
sented, but was lost almost as soon as It
left the hands of the committee. So over
whelming was the vote against it that no
further attempt was ever made to again
present the matter. The members claimed
it was only a plan to secure fees. It is
thought ths matter will receive more con
sideration this time.
A Complicated Title Case.
Yesterday there was a h'.tch in the case
)t Jesse Warrington against Sophia E.
Ithodes and others to quiet title, in Judge
Vllen's court. A mortgage foreclosure also
figures in the suit. The case waa to be
presented to a Jury, when one of the attor
neys objected. Judge Allen explained that
the title suit was all that would go before
the Jury and the foreclosure proceedings
will be taken care of by him. He said it
was necessary to settle the title question
before he could determine the merits of the
mortgage. The decision of the title case
will practically settle the mortgage ques
tion, but the case is badly complicated, and
it will take considerable deliberation to
straighten matters out.
The? Case Transferred.

CITY'S CHARITY WORKERS
AX.NUAL MEETING OF THE CHARITY
Fine Showing: Made by the Savings
Department The Business
of the Year.
The executive committee of the Charity
Organization Society met yesterday after
noon to receive the report of Secretary
Grout and plan work for the coming year.
The report of Mr. Grout was lengthy, and
tho various departments of work were re
viewed in detail. The records of the secre
tary showed during the year 737 applica
tions for assistance. Of these 426 had been
in the city but a few months, and had been
dependents upon similar organizations in
places of former residence.
The matters of begging, charity workers'
disappointments, and the "hard-luck" ap
plicants were discussed at length, and
many examples that have come to the no
tice of the officers were given in order to
show the methods of those seeking assist
ance and those of the society In dealing
with such case for the purpose of ascer
taining whether or not the applicant Is
worthy of help.
The savings department is one which
has the enthusiastic indorsement of every
officer of the society. The report showed
that the collectors, who visit the homes of
the poorer classes for the collection of
nickels, dimes and quarters, made in 1K)3
94, 13,655 visits; In 1S97-&8, 63.579 visits, col
lecting $17,743.51. Last year W.234 calls were
made, and the collections amounted to
$14,577.31. These amounts represent savings
of small .amounts which would never be
saved by the families were they not urged
by the fcoclety. The amounts collected each
time are so small that should each de
positor take time to make a trip to a de
pository the value of the time lost would
be fully as much as the amount of the sav
ing. The Friendly Inn was reported to be now
In the best condition since the opening. W.
