HARRY LYMAN A WINNER. Fresh Lmunli Won By the Champion Toptka Wrestler. Harry Lyman, of Topeka, the cham pion light-weight wrestler of Kansas, added one more feather to the already large supply of big and little feathers now in his cap; by defeating William Fisher, the champion middle-weight of Kansas City. The match, which was held in Hamilton hall, was witnessed by a crowd of about 5UO of the local talent. The crowd yelled itself almost into con vulsions and Lyman rolled the $100 purse into a small wad and deposited it in a far corner of his pocket. Fisher had the better of Lyman by fully 30 pounds,but Lyman's phenomenal activity and good judgment won the day. Lyman won the nrst fall in 23 minutes and the third in four minutes; Fioher taking the second. The wrestling match waa preceded by a series of preliminary bouts. The first waa A clever 6-round spar between John Abbott and John Page, both colored. Then Arthur Long and Will Kerr sparred for five rnunds; Madoulet and Mackey sparred five rounds. Prof. Horacek and son Otto gave an exhibition of fancy club-swinging, and then Arthur K. Smith of JN'ew York, the champion one legged boxer of the world, boxed with "Kid" Madoulet. lie showed himself livelier on his one leg than the average man on two, and he could have knocked the "Kid" oil the stage any time he de sired. After the match Smith took up a collection and got a whole hat-full of small change. MCKEEYER ANNOUNCES. He Asks Tor the Position or Represen tative. E. D. McKeever, a successful young lawyer, an energetic and active Repui lican, announces himself as a candidate for representative from the city district to succeed Hon. W. B. Swan. He read law with Johnson, Martin & Keeler, a firm which has not only graduated many lawyers, but set forth many statesmen. Ye believe McKeever is Kansas born, at any rate he has been raised in and near iopeka. He has built up a splen did law practice. He started without 1 capital and by his own industry and tal ents has made a place for himself. Five years ago he was a carrier on the Statk Journal when our city list was less than one-fourth its present size. He made a good and faithful carrier and such young men will always do to tie to. If McKeever's present ambition is gratified he will be heard from for the good of the district he represents. NOT A CANDIDATE. P. G. Noel Denies That He Wants to Be 1 Treasurer. To the Editor of the State Journal. Please say that I am not a candidate for the office of state treasurer or for any office whatever. I expect to remain in Topeka, however, and continue a private citizen, to work for the city's upbuilding. P. G. Noel Dangfrons Preparations. Allcock's Porous Plaster is composed of purely vegetable ingredients and is ab solutely harmless. It assists nature in her own efforts to heal and invigorate, and imparts strength to the whole system. Many preparations contain strong chemical and mineral substances which produce an injurious effect, not only upon the skin, but upon the whole sys tem, although at first they seem very beneficial, on account of their powerful action and temporary effect upon the surface. When purchasing a plaster do not only ask for Allcock's, but make Bure that you get it. Brandreth's Pills are purely vegetable. It or It Island. Ilonte Excursions.

Ringling Brothers' Worlds Greatest Shown is said to be the only big exhibi tion that will visit Topeka this season, and as it has been almost doubled in size since it was here two years ago, its di mensions alone will attract attention. Fame has come to this big circus rapidly during the past few years, and it is now credited with being the largest and best circus, menagerie and hippodrome in this country. Many new and unique features are promised, and Ringling dav in Topeka this year promises to be "a memorable event.

Sands First Fear of Republicans Stealing Their Thunder Induces Them to Issue a Platform Xow. The Populist state central committee adjourned at 10:30 last night, after fixing the date of the Populist state convention for June 12, at Topeka. There were two factions in the committee, one of which wranted the convention held May 31 or June 1, and the other about June 20. A compromise was made on June 12. The main thing considered in fixing the date for the state convention by the central committee last night, was ''How shall we dodge the suffrage question and prevent the Republicans from stealing our calamity thunder?" During the evening when the com mittee was wrangling with this mo mentous question Frank Forrest who travels over the state in the interest of the Advocate delivered himself of his opinion on the subject He said: "If our convention is held after the Republicans hold their conven tion, we will lose all our thunder. I have been traveling over the state and I know what I am talking about The Republicans are going to have a regular calamity platform this year. They will pass resolutions endorsing the action of United States Judge Caldwell, they will resolve on the decisions of Judge Dundy and talk severely about railroad receiv ership. They are going to have a regu lar calamity platform and will steal our thunder, sure, if we allow them to hold their convention first" The committees seemed to. be im pressed with the utterances of Forrest and they evolved a novel scheme to over come the difficulty. They decided to hold their convention after the Republi can convention, and thereby avoid trou ble on the suffrage question, compelling the Republicans to show their hands by either adopting or rejecting a suffrage plank. The other horn of the dilemma was overcome by promulgating a plat form themselves without waiting for the convention to do it The Populist state central committee has issued a platform upon which they propose to stand until their state conven tion meets at any rate. For the first time in the history of their party in this state the Populists find themselves compelled to dodge the main issue before the people and wait until their opponents have outlined their position. The committee before it adjourned adopted this advance platform covering the points thy were afraid would be stolen by the Republicans: Resolved, That all persons irrespective of former party affiliations who believe in the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1; who believe in more money and less taxes; who be lieve in strict economy in governmental affairs; who are opposed to the 'issuance of interest bearing bonds in times of peace; who believe in a graduated in come tax; who believe in governmental ownership of railroads; who believe that the promises made by the government to the soldier where he enlisted should be strictly fulfilled; who believe that the freight and passenger rates in Kansas should be based on the cost of construc tion and expense of operating rail roads and that such rates should be re duced to correspond with the reduced prices of the product of labor; who be lieve that the wages due railroad em ployes should be a first lien upon all property of the road payaDle betore any other claim whether the road is operated by the company or by receivers; that no officers or stockholders of any railroad should be appointed receivers thereof and who believe that the legislation out lined herein will restore prosperity to the country and enable the thousands who are now tramping the country in en forced idleness to secure profitable em ployment and enjoy the fruits thereof, tie invited to participate in the primaries and convention." A resolution was adopted endorsing the ordinance of the Omaha platform barring state officers and employes from seats in the state convention. The basis of representatives was fixed on the vote of Secretary of State Osborn, one delegate being allowed for every 350 votes and two at large in each county. The average vote of 1890 and 1892 is taken as the basis. This will give 612 delegates. A HODGEMAN FIGHT. To Oast County Commissioners on Ac- count of Alleged Crookedness. W. J. Gilbert, county attorney of Hodgeman county, came in yesterday afternoon to consult with Attorney Gen eral Little who commenced mandamus proceedings to oust two members of the board of county commissioners of Hodge man county. A demand was made upon the board to remove the county treasurer because of his failure to produce all the county funds which are supposed to be on de posit in bank. The Populist member expressed himself as favorable to the suspension of the treasurer but the Fusionist and Republican members re fused hence the proceedings. HE SAW KELLY'S ARMY". Asst.

A tramp appeared on Harrison street yesterday with a new scheme, at least new to the people thereabouts. He came around the corner bareheaded, and ran into G. W. M. White's. He was given a hat, and had no sooner reached the street than he tucked it under his coat and went in search of another hat The regular weekly burglary occurred on this side last night This time P. J. Mulligan at the corner of Kansas avenue and Curtis streets was the victim. Mr. Mulligan keeps a billiard hall and closes up about 12 o'clock. He secures his rear door with an iron bar across it When he came down thi3 morning he found that some one had used an auger to make a hole in the door large enough to admit the hand and had removed the bar. Further investigation showed that the auger had been used successfully in effecting an entrance to a handsome side board behind his counter from which they took a quantity of tobacco and cigars. They were evidently look ing for money as there was a show case filled with cigars on the counter.
