lO CENTS A WEEK. NIGHT-EDITION. TOPEKA, KANSAS, MONDAY EVENING, APRIL 23, 1894. TWENTY-SECOND YEAR. 'I if A I LIKE AJRiUMPH. Gen. Kelly Harchinr Through Iowa With ilis Army. Entire Population Turns Out With Flairs and Cheers. Farmers With Gaily Adorned Wajrons Meet Him. LOADED WITH HONORS Also With Grub by Admiring rt iwkeyes. Snmpt nous Rpasts Provided By the Townspeople. A HUNDRED WAGONS Furnished by Farmers to Haul the Commonwealers. A Mutiny in Camp Makes an Exciting Scene. Neot.a, Iowa, April 23. Kelly and his industrial army ended their first day's march from Council Bluffs here at G o'clock last evening1 and immedi ately went into camp in a grove just east of the town. The entry into Neola was a triumphal march. Al most every man, woman and child of the 1,000 inhabitants went out to greet the army; flags were borne and cheers lusty as the 1,800 tramped down the town's main street to the strains of country bands. The stores and va cant buildings of this place were thrown wide open, and the weary men were offered all available shelter. The start from camp was made at 8 o'clock. Hundreds of people had ji-one out from Council Bluffs and Omaha to see the beginning- of the loDg overland march, and a dozen wagons, heavily laden with provi sions, awaited the moving of the column. As soon a.s breakfast was over and blankets strapped the com panies fell into line, and, in step with the energetic thumping of a bass drummer, tramped down the hill, upon which the camp was situated, and the march to Washington was be gun. The day was a perfect one, and rapid time was made along the smooth, well beaten roads. From every farm house flags were flying, and at every .cross road lines of gaily decorated wagons and carts hailed the coming of the army. The little town of Underwood was reached about noon and a sumptuous repast served by the enthusiastic vil lagers. When the meal was over and the impromptu speeches done the march was resumed amid the energetic cheers of the crowd that was gath ered. On every hand the deepest sympathy for Kelly and his men were expressed and farmers and townsmen were eager to supply the wants of the commonwealers. Neola is in it to a man and the action of the railroads for refusing a train is as violent here as at Council Bluffs or Omaha. As an ironical expression of the feeling re garding the calling out of the Iowa militia, the citizens here formed a. company of little boys and girls to greet the advent of the army. Throughout the day there was no scene of disturbance or disorder, and the plan of seizing a train has been abandoned. The railroads entering Council Bluffs will not, however, run trains in this vicinity until the army is well off their routes. General Kelly said that whether the men ride or walk, they will move steadily forward to Des Moines. There the army expects to secure a train for Chicago, and at Chicago the men be lieve they will be well provided with transportation to the East. A -Mutiny In the Army. Kelly's industrial army awoke today to tiud itself in a state of mutiny. The young general promptly rose to the oc casion and before the march eastward was begun, a colonel had been stripped of his rank and a company or fifty men dismissed from the service. The first trouble arose during the eight when CoL. Baker issued orders contrary to those of Kelly, who had instructed that no men be allowtd to leave the camp. Baker totd the men that they could leave camp if they wished and as soon as the bugle aroused the army a court martial was called. The officers de clared unanimously against Baker and he was promptly expelled much to the satisfaction of the rnen. During break fast a more serious trouble occurred. A man in company C, of Sacramento, quarreled with a comrade and drew a knife. His oppoaent promptly seized a club and with a friend began energetic belaboring of the belligerent. Kelly ap peared on the scene and ordered the three men transferred to another com pany. To this, company C objected, and when the general ordered them into the ranks, they refused to go. "Company C is disbanded," shjuted Kelly. "The men may join other companies and mast fol low orders hereafter." It Looked Threatening. Matters immediately assumed a threat ening aspect. Loud denunciations of Kelly were heard, some of the men, openly accusing their commander of ap propriating fundi donated to the army to his own use. CoL Spead, in whose regi ment company C belonged made au ap peal for his men, but Kelly was obdurate. Moving to their 'divisions forwarded Into two, he order a sergeant to call the roll of company C. and as each man step ped forward he was asked if he was will ing to join another company. Officers aud meu promptly responded that they would go forward as company C, or not at alL O They were ordered to give up their badge and leave. When the little scene was over, CoL Spead, who is extremely popular, with the Sacramento division, began an ad dress. He was deeply affected as he told the men of hia deep sympathy for them. "But men do not count in such a movement as this" he declared. "It is the principle to which men must be sac rificed. I know and love every one of you, but I must leave you and go on." Then came the parting. - Spead extend ed his haud, and with tears streaming down his sunburned cheeks said broken ly "good bye boys." They kh4 Tears. The men rushed forward and with wet eyes and in broken voices bade their chief farewell. "We will follow you colonel," they said, "but we have been unjustly treated." s When the last farewell was said, Spead turned away with his handkerchief to his eyes and walked down the bluffs alone to join the main body. The little baud with flag and banners lowered watched him as he left them, many of the meu sobbing aloud. At last Captain Moss stepped before the men and asked if they were willing to follow him on east. "CoL Spead will bring Kelly around," he said, "and we will be back in the army before tomorrow." Alter a brief consultation the men de clared their willingness to go, and gave three rousing cheers fojr Spead, marched along the bluff past the army, down up along the wagon road, and started up the St. Paul railroad tracks for Avoca, where the army was to spend the night. After the excitement attending the incident had Buosided, Kelly marshaled his troops and the march to Avoca began. On tike 1 Co ml to Avoca. Avoca .is eighteen miles from Neola. The farmers oi the surrounding country had provided about 100 wagons and. the greater part of the meu were carried. One or two companies were compelled to go afoot and the deposed Colonel Baker joined the ranks in one of these along the line of march. The men were vigor ously cheered and every mile or so farm ers met the ranks with wagon loads of provisions for the army. 1 he day was bright and warm and good time was made. Dinner was taken in a pretty grove about nine miles from Neola and the army reached Avoca about on time. The industrials received an ovation as they marched into the town and were well provided with rations. The St. Paul road began running trains into Council Bluffs today, but no attempt to seize a train was made. The march over land will be continued quietly until Des Moines is reached, but there the men are certain they will secure a train. Re ports as to the number of men in the army have been conflicting a on the march many sympathizers naved march ed with the men, that a correct count was impossible. General Kelly today showed his roll calls to an Associated Press representa tive. They showed that 1,300 men marched into Neola yesterday; that twenty recruits were secured at that place and with the fifty men who were discharged today, that 1.330 men, exclu sive of officers, reached Avoca. Many men who have attempted to enlist have been refused, owing to the belief that they were tramps, but Kelly says that he will take 5,000 out of Chicago when he leaves there for Washington.

The Populist state central committee is in session in Chairman Breidenthal's office. The committee meets to fix the date of holding the state convention, though there is little doubt that the date has been already agreed upon. All the state officers who will talk at all say that there will be an early con vention. Chairman Breidenthal will say noth ing about the probable action of the committee, and the members are very careful not to talk for publication. A prominent character about the state house today was Warden Chase of the state penitentiary. He spent considera ble time in conference with the state of ficers. He is here to see that an early convention is held When asked about the action of the committee he simply said, "There will bean early convention." Auditor Prather said: "I am in favor of an early convention. I believe in be ing aggressive and beginning the light early. I think the convention will be held about June 1." The general impression is that the convention will be called for May 23 or 31 at Salina, with the latter date most in favor. There is some opposition to an early convention but it does not come from the state house. It comes from the anti fusionists who believe it best to let both parties make their nominations and then nominate a complete ticket un hampered by pledges or promises. The members of the committee are: J. W. Breidenthal, chairman; Chas. S. Davis, secretary; First district, L. D. Nichols and J. P. Sams; Second district, James A. Geakle and D. C. Zercher; Third district, T. P. Leach and 8. W. Baxter; Fourth district, J. W. Randolph and J. W. Lay bourn; Fifth district, J. N. Limbocker and D. Parkinson; Sixth dis trict, A. N. Whittington and J. F. Ewing; Seventh district, Rufe Cone and J. J. Barnes. QUACKS HAVE FLED. The Cliioago Dispensary People are Xo More Doing: Hasluess Mere. The "Chicago Dispensary company," the medical concern which Secretary Dykes of the state board of health de cided was a quack institution and ex pressed the determination to prosecute as such, has packed its supply of medi cine and advertising matter and gone away from Topeka, and the office at 727 Cjuincy street where its shingle has been tossed to and fro by the breeze has ceased to toss and the place knows Dr. L. G. Remaley, Mrs. Remaley, Dr. W. A. Clark and Ida Blade no more. . Mrs. Remaley left town Saturday with out stopping to say good bye to Dr. Dykes or any of her patients. Nobody but the "dispensers" know where the "doctors" have gone. Dr. Remaley, Dr. Clark and Miss Blade went from Seneca to Centralia. They were there on the 16th, aud have not been heard from since. They appear also to have taken a sudden flight into the intangible unknown. Dr. Dykes sa3rs he is glad they hare gone, but sorry he didn't get a chance to prosecute them. Their rooms on Quincy street are vacant. MR. WHITING MAY RESIGN. Bis Batten on the Police Board Not Ex actly to Bis JLlkinjf. Another change in the board of police commissioners is likely to be made in the near future according to a story which was made public today. It was stated that Commissioner Whiting, who was appointed to succeed the late CoL Sells as a member of the board, is tired of his position and the trouble it gives him and will resign. Commissioner Whiting when asked about the matter said: "There is no truth in the story whatever. I have no intention of resigning and have not said I would resign. However, I will say this. I did not want this position when I was appointed a member of the police board, but since I have accepted it I try to do my duty; but I reserve the right to resign at any time I may take a notion to do so." Although Commissioner Whiting de nies that he is to resign now, he quali fies his denial with the statement that he reserves the right to resign at any time he may take a notion. Mr. Whiting it is said, finds that the position on the police board interferes with his business and requires a great deal more time than he cares to give it. No one would blame him if ho should decide to let some one else take his onerous job. REPUBLICANSMEET The Executive Committee of Republican Clnbs in Washington. Washington, April 23. The execu tive committee of the national league of Republican clubs met here today at the Arlington hoteL One of the principal objects of the meeting is to discuss the arrangements for the seventh annual league convention, which will be held in Denver, June 2ti next.

Among other attractive features of the meeting will be a three days' ex cursion through the mountains with stops at Cripple Creek, Manitou Springs and other points of interest. President Tracy predicts that the Den ver meeting will be the largest in the history of the league. The question of reorganizing the southern leagues will be discussed and a report on this subject probably will be made. Another important question which will be discussed informally is that of mak ing a change in the basis of representa tion at national conventions. MAY ARBITRATE. Minneapolis, Minn., April 23. There are good prospects that the Great Northern strike may be settled by arbi tration. Gov. Nelson has made a proposal that the road and the strikers each appoint three members of a board of arbitration and these six name a seventh.
