STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY EVENING JUNE 20, 1894.
TALE, W II A LEY, TALE. The Erstwhile Republican Boss Clasps Hands With Populists. HE EEYEALS SOME STATE SECRETS Or the WlUIani II lysine AdmUUtra tton Place Him Bolt oa Hilh eronndi of Ifrinelple- The Republican party has lost one of Its most active worker in Topeka in the person of E. B. Whaley. He has an nounced that he will not support the Republican ticket but will render the Populists all the assistance in hia power. Mr. Whaley served several terms in the city council and was a candidate for the Republican nomination for the legisla ture in the district which includes the Fifth ward and Potwin, four years ago and was beaten in the convention by only a few votes. Laat year he was defeated for the nomination for county clerk in a close contest in which Chas. ilcCa.be was nominated. He has been a member of both the county and state central com mittees and Jwai always considered a successful political worker. The Populists are jubilant over the ac quisition of Whaley, and the secretary of the state central committee, R. If. Semple, says that he ha3 agreed to take the stump against the Republicans in Shawnee county. A Journal, reporter called upon Mr. Whaley and found that the rumor of his desertion was a fact. I shall not sup port the Republican ticket," he said. "I am sorry that H jch was not nominated for governor, for he would have received my support. As it is I am done. , I have worked as hard for Republican success as any one in Shawnee county, but I can no longer support the Republican party when it has gone into the hands of the railroads. There are only two men on the state ticket who were not nomi nated by the railroads they are Stanley of Lawrence and Cole of Girard. 1 can say nothing of Cole because I don't know him, but I understand that he has never been a railroad lawyer. "I understand that Morrill first got his start indisposing of railroad lands in the northern tier of counties, and he did that bo i successfully that he was one of the 'big four nominated and elected to con gress by the influence of the roads. "The railroads own the Republican party. 1 was in a position on the state central committee where I found that to be a fact It was the railroads that run the laat Republican campaign, and they will run this, and that is why I am tired of this thing. I believe that the mass of the voters do not know this and that ninety per cent do not know the facts, but the other ten per cent do know all about it and oflt from the result. "It was the railroads who were respon sible for the legislative war two years ago. They knew that with a Populist senate and house the minimum freight rate bin would be passed and they set about to change the complexion of the regularly elected house. Why did the canvassing board have W. J. Stagg, one of the shrewdest manipulators of ligures on hand when the returns came in Do you know that when those 'ties' were drawn that Bill Higgins had mucilage on his fingers and the right paper stuck to them? "Why was Geo. L. Douglass turned down in the stata convention? Simply because he fought the railroads. He did that from the time he was first elected to the legislature and of course he couldn't be nominated. He is not the kind of inon the railroads want. "In the recent primaries in this city it was the joints and railroads that nom inated Veale. They voted 5J0 Demo crats and no one will ever know how many repeaters. Our primaries can never be pure until the registration of every voter with the county central com mittee is made. "People will say I do this because I am sore but that is not true. I don't ask for any thing from the Populists I don't want any thing but I am tired of the way things are going in the Repub lican party. "Njw look at the two old parties in congress. They are together on the money question and by the time the Democratic senate gets through with the tariff bill there will be very little dif ference between it and the McKinley bill. That is pretty hard on the people who have listened to men who told them they must whip the Democrats and then told the Democrats that they must whip the Republicans to lind taat after all there is no dilTerence and that the old parties are alike in principles. "This talk of the Populists ruining the state makes me tired. The present con dition extends over the entire world and it was the Populists who were the prophets who told ua it was coming. They haven", hurt this state for we tind the same conditions existing in the states not controlled by the Populists and in ZS'ew York and some of the other states it is worse. "I have thought of offering my services to Breidenthal, but I haven't done so as yet and do not know that I will, and I do not know whether they would be ac cepted if offered. My physical condi tion is such that I would probably not stand the work of a campaign, but I will do what I can in Shawnee county anyhow." Mund&y SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.

K. B. Welch Explain an Occnrrnci In Which He Took Part. 7 To the Editor of the State JournaL In your editorial of Monday .and by various persons during the past few days "Welch's break in calling upon the me n in the Santa Fe shops during the war of 1893," was alluded to in such manner that I feel that I ought to publicly say something about it. I was chosen to the command of the assistants to the sergeant-at-arms over my protest, made before more than a hundred men now living In Topeka. After we were in Representative hall, a company of militia came marching into the state house grounds with drum and fife and it was reported to me that this company had orders from the Governor to expel the legislature from Represen tative hall at Once. I know of no other purpose for which we were there except to repel any such attack if made. We were then without arms except that a few of us had revol vers. I felt perfectly justified in inform ing any body of loyal men . within reach that we were about to need their aid. The telephone was in the sergeant-at-arms room with the door locked. In breaking this door down the matt er got into the press dispatches. Elwood Peffer arrived at the telephone first and under took to send a message to hia paper. I picked him up and set him outside' the small telephone room and then called up Mr. tieorge K. Peck who was absent, l then called up Mr. A. A. Hurd and asked that the fact that an attack was about to be made. He communicated to the men in the shops as the nearest body of brave men I could reach 1 did not request that the men at the shops be ordered out for any purpose. 1 have never apologized for this act and I wish no friend of mine to do so for me. Many persons could have performed the duty then laid upon me much better than I, and especially is this true of some who were not there. All I wish to say is that the duty came to me unsought, I did the best I could in the seeming- emergency and I offer no apologies. The legislature was satisfied with my conduct and sent to me an engrossed 1 resolution giving to me more credit than ! deserved. This engrossed resolution is ; now framed and hangs in my office. I i am in no way responsible that the facts were misreported or that the Populists claim that the A., T. & S. F, railroad company runs the Republican party and dictates its nominees. I communicate these facts to correct the impression that a break was made. I would make the same "break" under the same circumstances every day in the week. I am now and always hope to be against anarchy and misrule. Respectfully, R. B. Welch. Topeka, June 20, 1894. , SNAP SHOTS AT HOME NEWS. inside prices. Call and see them.

The case appears to have grown out of a misunderstanding, and the de fendant was promptly discharged. Mr. Smeddick left an old plug hat at C Chivers' renovating establishment last week to be cleaned and blocked, lie thought Mr. Chivers said he could have it last Saturday. Chivers says he didn't. Mr. Smeddick called for hi3 hat Satur day, and it wasn't done. He called again yesterday afternoon, and still it was not quite ready. Smeddick demanded, as his hat was not done, that he should be given another hat, or else his old one whether done or not. Chivers refused to give up the old hat unless Smeddick paid 50 cents for the work already done on it. Smeddick wouldn't hear to this for a minute, so he took an old hat that be longed to Chivers and went home. He aavs he thought the hat he" took was his own.
