Populist Indorsement Will Not In jur a Woman Suffrage IS THE OPINION OF WILLIS GLEED. The Sentiments of Progressive, Cul tured Republicans Very Clearly Ilrroredln an Interview With 31 r. IHeed. Willis Gleed does not think the suf frage cauae will loe strength because of Populist indorsement, nor that many Republican j will vote apainst the amend ment who have not already made up their miuda to do so. In this connection he said to a Jocrxal reporter: "Of course the Republican party con tains now and then a man who holds fourteenth century views of women, and who having made up his mind long ago to vote against the amendment, will rise graveJy now and say: I won't vote for any measure that Populists indorse.' But happily such men are not very num erous." Continuing Mr. Gleed said: "Some of the friends of universal suffrage seem to apprehend that the indorsement given it by the Populist party will hurt rather than help. The reasons for such feel ing are not clear to me. "In my judgment a majority of the Republicans are m favor of the amend ment and this majority is, on the whole (and dealing in averages), the more in telligent, fair-minded, candid, and un prejudiced portion of the party. They hav made up their minds on the ques tion without the hulp of their party and they would vote for the amendment even if the party had taken action against it. Hut tne party Has not declared against it ine party leader in this campaign, Major Morrill, declared for it openly only a a.-iy or two before the convention was hel.L "The individuals composing the popu list party are divided on the question. but a majority favor the amendment, as snown Dy tne action of the convention. 1 here is no doubt that the individuals composing the Populist Tjartv are more Influenced and controlled by the party as a pnriy man uepubiicans are. v "The indorsement of the suffrage amendment by the PoDulist convention will have more effect upon the rank and rite of Populists than indorsement by the Republican convention would have had upon the rank and file of the Republi cans. . 4 "the Republican party may be de nounced somewhat by the zealous friends or the amendment hereafter as they were the other evening by Miss Anthony, but I do not' expect that. The local leaders of the suffrage cause feel that the majority cf Republicans are with them, though some of the party leaders seem to be against them. I do not think the Kansas leaders of the suf frage cause are likely to make any on slaught on the Republican party, and it is my opinion that it would be unwise for them to do so. "While the majority of the Populists are in favor of the amendment, a good strong minority are against it. There fore the Populist party cannot afford to make the question a test of party fealty, and will not I doubt If they will get ten votes because of their indorse ment of the suffrage amendment more than they would have re ceived otherwise. I believe that the majority of the voters of Kansas favor the amendment and some of them are very much in favor of it, but very few look upon it as a question of such char acter and bearing that they will change party on account of It It is essentially different from ordinary political ques tions. "I donbt very much whether the Pop ulists in convention believed that they were going to gain any great number of votes by indorsing the amendment. If that was the case, their action was, in my view, all the more honorable to them. I doubt very much whether tha fact that the Republicans have not indorsed the amendment and the Populists have, will make any great difference in the location of women's votes hereafter should the amend nent pass. t "I have no doubt that the majority of women who are married will be found, to be members of the same party that their husbands are, although many will be on the opposite aides, as they are now. But I have yet to hear of a Kansas wo man, who has heretofore been a Repub lican, who has become a Populist on ac count of the action of the two conven tions. I do not think women will be ex tresae partisans, anyway. They have no shown themselves to be in munici pal natters. Their natural relations to the family tend to make them conserva tive and cautious. "If the amendment passes I doubt if it will make any material difference in the relative numbers of the various parties. I do not think either party, as against the other, will have much to gain or lose by the passage of the amendment, but I am quite sure that now and then a leader in the different political parties will have considerable to gain or lose. Women will not be as prone to vote for a Comanche Indian or a yellow dog just because he got the nomination as men are. "The suffrage amendment csnnot un der all the circumstances becotij a party issue. I don't think Republicans can fairly blame the women of Kansas be cause the Populist men chose to espouse their cause. Nor can Republicans con sistently or wisely refuse the ballot to Republican women just because Populist women may have been instrumental in securing the Populist endorsement" FILTH AND CIGARETTES. Two Important Ordinances Considered by the Sitnltary Committee Last livening. At the meeting of the city council's health and sanitary committee at the council chamber last evening, the four members of the committee, Is. Eitlinger, chairman, F. I Stevens, J. D. Pattisou and P. Y. Grigg3, were present City Attorney Tillotson was also present as an advisory member of the committee. The object of the meeting was to pre pare a report on the scavenger ordinance to present at the session of the council this evening, and the city attorney read it a section at a time. The original or dinance was changed but little and as it now stands the ordinance that was rec ommended last night and will be pre sented tonight provides that any person of good repute, who is not in de fault with the city of Topeka, who shall furnish a bond in the sum of $500, who shall pay a license fee of $25, and shall use the best approved ap pliances inspected and endorsed by the sanitary committee, shall be issued a scavenger's license and permitted to re move refuse, etc., for citizens at the rate of 10 cents per cubic foot and dump it at the city dump a: the rate of one cent per cubic foot The ordinance also contains a sched ule for charges in removing dead ani mals and compels removal of same with in six hours of notification. The city now has three authorized scavengers and under this ordinance they will all be un der the direct control of the physician. The scavenger's license expires on the 1st of May each year, and the ordi nance seems a little lame in the par ticular that it makes no provision for a reduction in the cost of a license should it be issued, say a month before its expiration. However, the ordinance will be favor ably reported. Objection was taken to the issuing of orders to clean vaults, by Sanitary Police Officer Hudson, and City Attorney Tillotson declared that such or ders were not legal notices. Discrimin ation in favor of favorite scavengers by health officers, who make known to them to whom orders have been issued so they can make the first bid, will also be prohibited. The cigarette ordinance, which pro vides for the punishment by a tine of not less than $3 nor more than $1J of any person who shall sell or give to any mi nor not yet sixteen years of age any to bacco, opium or other narcotic, except upon a physician's prescription, was unanimously recommended, and is the same as the original, except that the minimum fine was raised from $2. The committee then adjourned. STATE SPORTSMEN. They Eleet Officer for the Ensuing- Tear State at Kuni City.

Drasv up the papers, lawyer, I know what I'm about; We atnc gitten' 'long well at our house, and Moilie an' 1 are out It all come- o' ekal suffrage an' that there kind o' stuff, . I've stood it 'slong's I" goin' to an' now I've got enough. You see some suffrage wimmen what's cranks from ev'rypiut Has bean tamp'rin' with Mollie's thinker an' got it out o' jint. An' she's been readin' the papers an' postin' up somewhat An' thinks 'at she's a statesman, an' been glv ia' me a lot O' advice on how to run 'lections an' how to make 'em ijo In the interest o' prosterlty an' some more like that you know; So I got sick au' tired an' vowed It wouldn't be long Till 1 got out o' the country an' left that kind o' song. Moilie was always a model, till she got this fool idee. That she could do good avotin' like her broth Jim and me; I tried to argy it with her but I didn't stan' no show. So I've give it up disgusted an' I'm goin' to to let her go. I thought like this about it: If sho kef on this way I'd come home an' find no dinner awaitln' me some day. An' our little boys all tatters, an' the kitchen noor an uirt. An' when 1 sot to thinkin' how changed she'd be, it hurt I hate this partin', lawyer, for we lived a happy life Till these here ekal suffragists came stirrin' ur a strife. But I'll soon be out of It, for I'm goin' out to roa m I won't have no old pelicans abreakln' uy my home. So draw up the papers, lawyer, an' draw 'em on the run. Give her the farm an' money, an' I'll take our son. For I don't want sech a woman a flUin' up his head "With her Idees of votin"; I'd ruther see him dead. An' hore'syer greenback, lawyer, you've earned it, I've no doubt. An Moilie can take the monev; the boy an' I'll skip out. We don't want no ekal suffragist; an' I don't think we'd miss 'in'; whole caboodle If they'd tro to a hotter place 'an th is. Well, good bye, Mr. Ijtwyer, you won't see me For I'm goin' out to find a place where the wommen aint all men; Where ail is peace an' quiet an the folks has sense to see If they had ekal suffrage what discord there would be. MOLLIS AX I MAKE UP. Why, hello, Mr. Lawyer. -I reckon you aint for got I'm tiia man what was in your office one day so awful hoc To git some divorce papers, but that was only the cup It slipped before it reached the lip, an' Moilie an I made up. So set down, Mr. Lawyer, an' have a good se gar. An' make up your mln' to listen an IH tell you how it war. I aint ashamed to own up what a tarnal fool I've been For you know an open confession aint consid-1 etou uiuuu ui a iu. As I was drivin' home that day with an awful load o' thought An' a purty good load o bugjuice which was goinecliin' I seldom got An' my iittie boy beside me how it happened I can't say. But the ne -1 1 knew I was on the ground and the team was runnln' away. With little Jake in the wagon, his little ban's stretched to me. Which sobered me up in an instant, but some how I couldn't see. An' how I managed. to git home 's more'n I'U ever know Though the distance over that lone rough road was only a mile or so. But when I reached the farm yard the team was standin" still. An' Moilie was holdln" soma object an hug gin is wiih a will. The tears were streamin' down her face an . b:ood was on tier dress An' I saw the object was little Jake an his soul hiid gone to rest. It seems Jake had been th rowed out an' his skull crushed by the fall. An' somehow as I stood there I felt I'd. caus ed it all. An' as Moliie brought him to me my heart fel t a powerful tug. For thera on the floor o the wagon lar i teUtaie parts o' the jug. " If I'd had a chance to vote, John, an the oth- er Wimmen. too. There would a bin less whisky an' this wouldn't happened to you." Her eyes said it; her lips wouldn't; they eould 'nt have if they'd tried. . An' when I thought how true it was I jus' broke down and cried. An' after we'd buried Jake an' with him our last cross word, "We talked the matter over In a way we'd sel dom heard. An' I've come to the conclusion, if woman couid have a hand Inelectin' our legislatures, there 'd be less woe in the land. Kow I believe in the suffrage motto, to let wom an vote if she will. "She gains, we lose nothing; she's a womanly woman sUU." , Moilie aint changed her min' any, but I have, heaven be praised, An' I think if we have other children, she knows best how they should ba raised.
