Honebrake of Tuptki It. If. Fleanlkca of Emporia The Republican state central commit tee has been organized and its officers for the campaign are the gentlemen named at the nead of this column. The members of the state central com mittee and the candidates for state offices were all here last evening and attended the meeting for organization held at the Copeland. The committee was called to order at 5 o'clock in the reading room by J. M. Simpson and the temporary secretary, C F. Johnson, called the roll. According to a previous arrangement a committee was appointed to wait on the candidates who were in Major Morrill a room . and see if thev had any recom mendations to make to the state commit tee. The candidates were prepared for the visit of the sub-committee and they re ported as their choice for officers of the committee, Cy Leland for chairman, J. L. Bnstow, secretary; P. 1. Bone brake. treasurer, and Frank Flennikeh, chief clerk. They also recommended the ap pointment of an executive committee of eleven. The candidates had some trouble in agreeing on the secretary of the commit tee. The candidates present at that time were Major Morrill, James A. Troutman, F. B. Dawes, E. Stanley, Otis L. Ather- ton, W. C. Edwards and W. A. Johnston. Dick Blue did not arrive until after the committee had been organized. When the candidates balloted un their choice for secretary of the committee the vote stood J. L. Bristow four, and B. F. Flen niken four. Not being able to agree among them selves, the candidates called in two con gressional candidates, Chester I. Long of the Seventh district and A. II. Ellis of the Sixth district. These two outsiders when admitted and requested to vote for the selection of a becretury voted for Bristow and he was declared the choice for secretary. It is understood that the gentlemen who supported Mr. Bristow did so bo cause of his well defined position as a prohibitionist, thinking that his pres ence so very near the head of the com mittee would be gratifying to many prohibition voters who were displeased because a prohibition plank was left out of the platform by the state conven tion. Chairman Leland then announced the appointment of the following executive committee; Charle3 F. Johnson, Oska loosa; W. E. Sterne, Topeka; J. M. Hum phrey, Fort Scott: L. S. Crum, Oswego; J. S. Postlethwaite, Jewell City; G. II. Burr, St. John; K. E. Wilcoeksou, Oak ley; J.M. Simpson, McPherson; Morton Albaugh, Kingman, and J. B. Toinlinson, Minneapolis. One of the committeemen suggested that of eourso Chairman Lelaud would be ex-ofiicio chairman of the committee, but Chairman Leland said, o: I think the committee will be able to choose its own chairman.' The executive committee was, how- ever, unable to select a chairman, the names of W. E. Sterne and J. M. s-imp-son being presented for that position, and aa it now stands Chairman Leland is ex-officio chairman of the executive com mittee. Chairman Leland was at the night ses sion authorized to appoint a sub-committee of five, which will with the executive committee plan the campaign. At the night meeting Major Morrill made a short talk in which he said: " I believe the outlook for Republican succea' if very bright. The conditions are all in our favor now but no one cm tell how thev will be three or four months hence. Therefore let us take nothing for granted. Let us go to work at once. I believe the circulation of good Republican literature is very im portant. The counties should be organ ized as speedily as possible and should be en rapport with the central committee. A leaflet containing general facts and figures of use to the voter and speaker should - be prepared. I believe that quiet, hard work will win this year. I think all money, spent for brass bands will be largely wasted; we must show the voters the important issues at stake. We ought to work with the old soldiers and the laboring classes for I believe we have a better field to make progress with them than any other. The school house campaign will do more good than ever before because the Populists are ready to listen now. Whilo we feel confident of success, this contest must be won by real hard work." F. B. Dawes said the counties which have planned to hold late conventions should be advised to change their plans and hold their conventions as soon as possible, and the committee adooted a resolution, asking all the counties to call their conventions for a date not later than August 13. George Cole, the candidate for state auditor, urged the committee to send good speakers and lots of literature into southeastern Kansas. W. S. Martin of Emporia wanted the committee to arrange to hold picnics on the alliance plan, and J. B. Tomlinson and T. S. Stover urced the imnortanee of having at least good speakers at every county convention. It was decided to invite Governor Me- Kinley, Tom Reed, ex-President Harri son and Mrs. J. Ellen Foster to take oart in the Kansas campaign. Sunday Exfinltn to Kansas City Santa Fe Kome.

MAY SETTLE SOON, The Bock Island to Ob'sln a Victory Over the GoTernineat. It seems quite probable now that the long existing feud between North Enid and South Enid in the Cherokee strip will be settled soon. North Lnid is the Rock Island town and the president of the town company, has said to the citizens of the south town that if they will move to his town where the Rock Island trains stop, he will - not only give them just as much land there as they had at the other place, but he will also see to it that the cost or moving their houses will not come out of their own pockets. The - town company will stand all the expense. It is said that the citizens of the south town look upon the proposition with favor and the plan may soon be consum mated. It is not altogether improbable either that the difficulty between Round Pond and Pond Creek will be settled by the president oi the former in the same manner. This will be a victory for the Rock Island over the United States gov ernment as bouth rnia was the govern ment town and it was a long time before congress would establish a postotnce at the north town. In spite of associated press dispatches to the effect that there is a prospect that serious trouble will break out at any moment between the Rock Island and Pond Creek the official advices from that town to the railroad officials in this city today are that everything there is quiet and lovely, lhe Kock island does not anticipate any further trouble. IN BAILROAD CIRCLES. Gossip Amoa tba Railroad Han of Kan sas. It is quite probable that there will be a change of time on the Leavenworth, To'peka & Southwestern next Sunday al though nothing definite regarding it has been arranged as yet. It is proposed to have the evening train leave Leaven worth a little later. No new trains will be put on and certainly none will be taken off. The Santa Fe freight depot and lower offices are being equipped with new in candescent lights. Heretofore only gas has been used. The Rock Island has followed the Santa Fe in making the round trip rate to Colorado $10.75. The other roads are mad about it of course and the cut may yet go deeper. Rev. W. L. Byers of the North Topeka Congregational church will address the noon meeting at the Santa Fe coach shop tomorrow. The Santa Fe brought over a special car of the Sanders commonwealers from Leavenworth last evening. Another car of bananas came in over the Santa Fe from Texas today. Santa Fe Conductor II. M. Marshall is seriously ill with typhoid fever at his home in Kansas City. The Santa Fe boys have another wor ry: Will pay day come before the Fourth of J uly? ALL ALONG THE LINES. Railroad Sewi Item Interesting: to ltailrouders and the Public Conductor Bob Scott of the Santa Fe has been promoted to the main line pas senger service out of Kansas City. Rock Island Immigration Agent Bill of Chicago passed through Topeka yes terday in charge of eight Hollanders who are looking over the country with a view to locating. They went southwest to the gulf country. Conductor Jack Weeks of the Santa Fe, who was stricken with paralysis a few days ago at Kansas City, is steadily improving. Engineers B. W. Ghent and J. N. Bran hau of the Santa Fe have been sum moned to Clay Center by the Rock Island as expert and disinterested testimony in the case between the Rock Island and the Union Pacific growiLg out of the Linwood wreck of last December. The Santa Fe at Albuquerque, N. M., have a base ball ciub, and it's a winner, too. Chief Engineer Dun of this city has been in Colorado, where he and the local officials have been looking up the repairs made necessary on the Canon branch near Pueblo by the late floods. A large force of men has been put at work. On" July 1st the Union Pacific will let out twenty-five of its office clerks at Omaha, and may abolish one department altogether, owing to the hard times. The Atchison Globe is responsible for this: The Central Branch depot at Yuma was struck by lightning a few nights ago. The lightning struck the bed of the agent, knocking it to piec es, and burning the bed clothes. .The agent had stepped across the street to get a plug of tobacco, and this act saved his life. Missouri, Kansas & Texas trainmen report that great excitement prevails at McAlester, in the Indian Territory, on account of eviction of miners and others from the territory. They say that as many as one hundred miners, with their families, have been evicted, and the work has just begun. The removal is effected by the aid of United States troops. Santa Fe Engineer Strunck visited in Newton last week. The switch targets on the Santa Fe southwest are being repainted. 1 he roof of the Santa i e roundhouse at Newton, torn out some time ago by a boiler explosion, is being rebuilt. The M. K. & T. has just received three new compound engines from the locomo tive works at Philadelphia. ' A new order has been issued from headquarters of the M., K. & T. railroad directing that conductors, engineers, fire men, brakemen and all other trainmen on the road have tieir eyes and ears ex amined, for which they are to pay out of their own pockets the sum of one dollar each. There is much kicking because of the last clause of the order. ABOUT WIRE TKOUBLE3. A. K. Ling;afelt's Fa par on tba Subject an Interesting One. In his paper before the national meet ing of the superintendents of telegraph at Detroit last week, A. R. Lingafelt of the Rock Island in this cCty, spoke parti cularly of the inefficiency of the average telegraph operator to locate and repair wire troubles. "It is well known to us," said he, "that from many causes a wire is likely to be broken or torn down on the line at any time. It is sometimes difficult for the operator nearest the point of disturbance to discover, its exact point and even then we are compelled to wait and suspend business of that particular line until a lineman can be sent out to repair the damage. Would it not then be advisa ble that each operator understand not only telegraphy but also line work to some extent so that he could at least es N all because pure cream and of 33 leavening ROYAL tablish a circuit that would answer until the linemen could get there. "It seems to me that tne average opera tor that has charge of the stations along the line is woefully ignorant in this par ticular. No end of trouble could be avoided if the operator understood even little of the science of electricity in cases or this Kino, ana n ne cuuiu per manently repair the damage without the necessity of a lineman his service would pnpioinlv he worth to the company and the matter of his promotion would not be so difficult to solve." Mr. Lingafelt further hoped that the superintendents present would urge this matter upon the operators under them in such a way they could see the mutual advantage such knowledge would bring about. The paper was enthusiastically received and considered one of the most important read at the convention. AT THE GEN Eft AL OFFICES. Items Picked' from Among: the Santa Fe OtHcera and subordinates.

There is trouble in the Knights of Col umbia, the fraternal insurance organiza tion founded by Col. Geo. W. Reed three years ago. Eight dissenting members have called a delegate convention of the 100 lodges which make up the organiza tion, to-meet in North Topeka June 27. They say they will reorganize the order on a new basis, and depose CoL Reed, who is the supreme commander, and the other supreme officers. The leader of the opposition, it is charged by-Commander Reed, is E. S. McCiintock, who was succeeded as su preme recorder by W. J. Stagg last month. The call for the convention however, is signed by A. J. Kane of North Topeka and representatives of seven other lodges. McCiintock denies that he is the instigator of the call and says he thinks the matter ought to be dropped; that he has only the good of the order in view and believes this agitation can only re sult in harm. The principal charges made in the circular against CoL Reed are that he will not allow the records to be examined or a financial statement to be made, and that he has made exorbitant and unneces- sarv expenditures of money. They also charge that CoL Reed is responsible for an assessment which was $ 1,000 in excess of the amount justified. It is further alleged that at the meeting of the supreme lodge a resolution wan passed at the suggestion of CoL Reed granting the supreme commander the use of two assessments each year to be expended under his direction. The call recites that with these two extra assessments which will aggregate $6,000, and a salary of $1,200 a year and traveling expenses, it gives the com mander a fund of about $ 10,000 a year for his me. A. J. Kane, one of the men who is pressing the movement against says: -CoL Heed attempted to stop this thing and offered to make me supreme re corder if we would drop the fight; but that is just what we object to. We do not want CoL Reed to own this order. The policy holders and beneficiaries should have something to say about it. "Ther has been an effort to suppress everything and keep the members from knowing anything about the business of the organization. We are making this stand for the good of the order and the delegate convention will be held. I have received notice from 150 lodgs which will have representatives present." CoL Reed says that the fight on him is being made by McCiintock because he found it necessary to take the office of receipts for cooking re- 11 quiring: a leavening agent ROYAL BAKING POWDER, it is an of tartar powder per cent, greater strength than other powders, will give the best results. It will make the food lighter, sweeter, of finer flavor, and more wholesome. BAKING POWDER CO., 106 WALL ST., NEW YORK. V supreme recorder away from from Mc Ciintock. lie said that under his man agement 1,600 members were suspended last year and that Stagg was elected to succeed McCiintock 1 because he would be a better man for the place. CoL Reed says that the constitution of the order prevents a delegate convention to be called only by the supreme com mauder and that he has written the lodge saying that if a majority desired a convention he will call it; and that he will then make a complete statement, exhibit all the books and demand that his acts be investigated. He declares that any action of the alleged conven tion presumed to be called will be' witlr out any legality. The present supreme officers are: Geo. W. Peed, commander; W. J. Stagg, re corder; A. L. Redden, treasurer; A. P. Riddle, chairman of the committee on good of the order; T. A. Beck, chairman of finance committee; J. E. McCiintock, medical director; J. E. Riggs, counselor. As to the unquestioned standiug of the officers, CoL Reed cites the above list of well known Kausans of the highest rep utation, associated with hiui on the official board, all of whom, he says, were duly elected for one year so recently as the 29th of last month. The colonel has issued a circular which is just as strong a3 the one sent out by Kano and his fac tion. Reed of course makes a staunch defense of his officers, lie denounce the whole opposition as merely a '-fight of malcontents, disgruntled mem bers who are disappointed because they or some of their friends have not control of the officers." He says his whole course will be vindicated and that he has been governed by an earnest desire to upbuild the order. THEY EXPECT 1,000. The Coming: Democratic Convention Will lie the Largest Ever Held. The Democrats are 'making prepara tion for their state convention which will be held in this city July S.

That is, the entire party in Kan sas will be here. Marshall's band and the Modoc club have been engaged and will furnish the music. The chairman of the central committee has written to Topeka Demo crats that the convention will be "the largest and most enthusiastic ever held in Kansas," which sounds very much like what the Republicans, and Populists said. The committee on arrangements is compoeed of John Mileham, S. B. Isen hart and Eugene .Wolfe. Lee Jones has charge of the entertainment of the dele gates and Major A- P. Shreve will be the sercreant-at-arms and look after the hall i decorations. THE "UNTERRIFIED." Want Free Trade in the Platform, But Not For Themselves. San Antojjio. Tex June 20. A meet- inir of reoresentative business men and sheen and cattle growers was held last nicht at the board of trade rooms, at which the following resolutions were passed and wired to Senators Coke and Mills: jWhereas, The bill known as the Wil son tariff bill nowpending in the United States senate proposes to remove the duty from wool; and Whereas, The free wool menace has reduced the price of wool far below, the cost of production, rendering the de struction of the wool interests in Texas inevitable, should 1h.e threat become a certainty; and, Whereas, It Is also proposed by said bill to open "our market to the free grass meats of the plains of Mexico and the Pampas of South and Central America, threatening " utter ruin to our already crippled livestock industry; and, Whereas, These phases of the bill will affect most disastrously, not only our sheep and cattle interests, but our land interests as well; now, therefore, be it Resolved, That our representatives in both houses of our national congress be requested to demand for our interests the same measure of protection that has been accorded to producers of raw mate rials in other states.
