STATE JOURNAL, FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 1, 1894.
SCANDALOUS INDEED. X.e welling Condemned Out of the Mouth of Populiats. EOW THE LOTTERIES HAYE GROWS Under the I'oterlng Cire or the form" tievemor- ! ntor Taylor Ex pose the Condition of Affaire at KDa City. lian. Senator Taylor of Wyandotte, who 13 one of the best informed and moat intel ligent men in the Populist party and a man of good judgment, ia a strong op ponent of the Lewelling administration. In his speech before the Populist county convention at Kansas City, Kan., he said: "When I see the prohibitory law rented out by the month to be violated as it is in this city, all with the governor's conniv ance and apparent consent, then I am convinced that so valuable a concession was not handed down for charity or for love. "During the campaign two years ago a prominent politician told me negotia tions were on foot with the gamblers of this city which would elect the Populist ticket. I dismissed the story then as an idle tale, but recent event have caused me to reverse that conclusion. And if any of you are under the impression that there was no deal on then, 1 ask you to account for tne phenomenal growth of the lottery business in this town since Le welling tcame governor. "Under Governor Humphrey it was an Insignificant affair. It is now, in the ex tent of its business correspondence, the amount of money it handles, easily the foremost business in this town after the packing houses, smelter, railroads and fctock yards are excepted. "We hav the biggest flouring mill in the state, with a capacity of 2,500 barrels of flour a day, but our mills handle less money than our lotteries. Add to this that those lotteries are fakes, that their prizes are a joke, and the whole thing a swindle, and then tell me how to char acterize a reform governor who lives in apparent harmony with them. A straw which indicates the direction of the wind in Topeka was furnished when the governor, having a little deputy coal oil inspectorship in his gift, for this city, instead of looking around for a worthy Populist engaged in a legitimate calling he gave it to a man who, if com mon report Is true, is himself a gambler. "There never was a time in the history of this town when gamblers, policy-shoppers, pool-sellers, lottery people, crap shooters and jointers were in 6uch force or in such clover as now. "'Under the metropolitan police law the keynote of local government is struck at Topeka. The governor has been im portuned for the sake of the party and for the sake of-cominon decency to strike a higher note than he is sounding. I am reluctantly forced to the conclusion that he continues in the double bass because it pays him. On what other hypothesis can you account for . his, or any other man's permitting such a damaging appearance of collusion if he is not enjoying the reality. The conditions here are such that nine-tenths of our peo ple believe that the administration is in some way a beneficiary of the lawless ness of this town; and we owe it to our selves from the standpoint both of patriots and partisans to turn down officials of whom such charges are true or whose conduct is such as to render them proba ble. "The Peoples' party in Kansas must prepare for reform within itself or de feat. It can't be tided over by sharp practices or unworthy partnerships. The smart thing in politics is the right thing. The tie that binds a party which ia to en dure must be something more than an office-grabbing conspiracy. A party which does not commend" itself to the public conscience by its official practices need not hope for length of days. But if the Peoples' party will once bring up its public performances to a level with the honest hearts of its rank and file, hearts quivering with sympathy for the unfortunate, and with loyalty to Ameri can institutions then, and then only, will its future be secure." What Ha, Cora loiniE? Little Rock, Ark., June 1. A sensa tional damage suit against the Iron Mountain road has been tiled here by Miss Cora Moore, the daughter of ex Secretary of State E. B. Moore.

Assistant Secretary of State Zercher was the first president of the State Citi zens Industrial Alliance of Kansas. He said in speaking of the circular issued by Noah Allen and W. F. Rightmireand published in the Jocrsal last night: "I have been interested in the Citizens' Alliance ever since its organization. The day of its usefulness is considered past. It was succeeded in 1892 by Peoples' party clubs, and to my knowledge there is not a single Citizens' Alliance organi zation in the state. MI do not think it was a proper thing for Mr. Allen and Mr. Rightmire to issue that circular letter as officers of that or ganization. As individuals they have a right to their own views and ideas about things. When they charge in their circular letter that the executive committee of the Peoples' party state central committee of which I am a member, has arranged for fusion or en deavored to do so they make a statement that is false. "The matter of candidates is a ques tion for the people's party state conven tion to settle, and has not even been dis cussed by our state committee. "It is not the purpose of our committee to prevent any person from voting the People's party , ticket who wishes to do so, but under no consideration will our committee enter into any agreement that would jeopardize the principles of our party."
