STATE JOTTRNWT, SATURDAY EVF.NTtfG. JUNE 30. 189 i.
ITU ALE Y AND THE POPS Converted After Twenty-four Years in Sin IS THE WAY THEY PUT IT. air. IVbaley Makes a Few Remark! at the Populist Leijue Bvoras-Othen Talk, on the HtriUe. E. B. Whaley made his debut before a Populist audience last night at the Popu list league. It took some coaxing to in duce Mr. Whaley to say anything1 and eouie talk was required to bring him to hia feet. J. M. Harrington the chairman, eaid: "I know you all want to hear Mr. Whaley. The last time I heard him was when he was in a debate at Tecumseh for the Republicans, and I had occasion to say a few things about him and I want to hear whether ha has really been con verted." W. a Decker: "We do want to hear Mr. Whaley. We are all brothers here in th?s People's party and we want to get Mr. Whaley up here where we can Bee him so we will know him and. call him brother." Harrington: "la religion we always put the young converts to the front and let the old fellows take a back seat. We always have them get up and say they love the Lord if they can't say any more. We want Mr. Whaley to get up and say he loves the People's party." Mr. Whaley arose and said: "Well Mr. Chairman, I can say that much at least. I have worked for the Republi can party faithfully for twenty-four years and during the last two years of the time I was a member of the state central committee, and while I do not expect to be able to work as hard for the success of the Populist ticket an I did for the success of the Republicans in those two years my good will will be with the People's party. I do not care to make a speech tonight but next. Friday evening I expect to tell in this room just why I left the Republican party. 1 do not see how any thinking man can help doing what I have done," Harrington: "That is a good exper ience from a man who has lived in sin 24 years." IL II. Brown sail: "I have heard good news today. The action of the assistant attorney general and the infamous order of Judge Phillips will remove all doubt from the minds of the working men as to where the courts stand; for this order of Judge Phillips proves that the courts are subservient to monopoly. I am hap py to hear of the t'e up of the railroads by the A. R. U. They are working to gether with the Farmers Alliance. The force1 of labor an 1 capital have met and no human force can guide or mind direct .the channel in which it will turn. "The only party that sympathizes with the strikers," said Mr. Brown, "is the People's party. Iso People's party man will go as a deputy to shoot down his fellow men for $3 a day, (a voice 'No Bir.' "If there was no People's party do you believe that labor would dare to boycott a great monopoly? I know it would not. If this order of Judge Phillips means anything it means that the railroads own the men." The speaker said of the ballot, it is the ' lightning which clears away everything in its track, and said: "Let the lightning next November shatter every United States court that dares to prostitute itself to capital, and down every one who dares to stand up and say he is not a man." C. O. Madoulet, who is employed in the Santa Fa shops, said: "There is one thing we workingmea want to find out, and that is what this word parity that is in all the "old party platforms means. We think it means a single gold stand ard." He continued: "I am a railroad man and d) not know whether the strike will succeed or not. I think it will be Bet tied next week and I believe by that time every wheel will stop and that the men will win. I see that Judge Foster has come cut on the side of the railroads. Judge Caldwell, who has been praised to the skies for his stand for the laboring men, has come out against the strikers and I do not know what we have to ex pect." H. A. Root, the Populist lawyer, talk ed about the legal side of the strike. He said that the roads did not have to haul Pullmans even if they had a contract to do so if it interfered with their business. "I believe," he Raid, "that the only rea son they have for insisting on hauling the Pullmans is to thow their authority and that General Manager Frey and the other general managers can enforce their orders." The following executive committee, to assist in the campaign, was named: J. 21. Harrington, J. E. Anderson, F. J. Hudson, L. T. Yount, II. W. Parker, E. li Whaley, C IL ivu'.zand Geo. Wagner. ANOTHER O.N E WON' O V F It. Ex-Po.tinatr Mil.ham In the Banks of Woman Suffragists. The suffrage workers need not be dis couraged because the Democratic man agers of the coming state convention do not went to listen to their appeal, as they are making converts every day among the members of the Democratic party. The latest announced suffragist in the Democratic ranks is ex-Postmaster John Mileham, who has joined A. II. Case in demanding equal rights for women. The announcement of Milehatn's con version has not teen received with joy in the Democratic household, and it is understood that his position on the suf frage question was the principal cause of his not being selected as a delegate to today's convention. A young Democrat who is not married accounts for the conversion of Mr. Mile ham to the influence of Mrs. Mileham. It is the bright and accomplished women in the Democratic party who are bring ing their husbands over to the right side. PARDONING JOINT KEEPERS. Comparative Records of Got. Bnmphnj and Got. I.wellln&-. D. C. Zercher of the Populist state cen tral committee, has written a letter to a brother Populist at Solomon City who wanted to know about Governor Lewell ing's record on granting pardons to vio lators of the prohibitory liquor law. . Mr. Zercher looked up the records and informed the Dickinson county man that Governor Humphrey pardoned for vio lating the prohibitory law in 1891 thirty four persons. In 1392 twenty, while Governor Lewelling in the first 18 months of his administration has par doned 2a D. Holmes, druggist, 731 Kansas ave. TO SUPPLY THE STATE. Contracts Let By the State Charities.

Another old timer has returned to To peka in the person of WilJiam Duffy, better known as plain "Pinkie." "Pin kie" is the Albino boy with white hair and pink eyes and complexion who was always reputed to be able to see in the dark. For many years "Pinkie" ued to sell papers and black boots on the streets of Topeka, but he left about the time the boom left, live years ago. He was a mere kid then, but now he wears long trousers and a negligee shirt with em broidery on it, and has an air of pros perity about him. He was seen in Rig by's store last evening by a Journal re porter, where he was reading oue of Nick Carter's dime novels. "How are you, cuily?" Pinkie said, ex tending his hand, "how's the Joihnal?" "The Jocbxal is prospering," replied the reporter, modestly. "Dais right. She always was a good seller." "Where have you been since you left here?" "I cum in from de east, by way of de south," replied the Albino boy with some show of pride. "What part of the east?" "Oh, l'se spent most of me time in New York state, but I has took in must of de swell watering places." "Are you here to otay?" "Naw! Dj east is good 'nuff for me. I just, come out to see de old foiks but l'se jest learued dey have nuved to K. C I tink I'll go down in de mornin'." DROPPED FR03I A BALLOON. Unpleasant Experience of the Subject of of 3Iemerit. narry W agner, one of L. M. Craw ford's employes, is now able to be on the street after what he believes to be a very narrow escape at the hands of Mesmerist De Kenyon. On Tuesday night Wagner was one of those who responded to the "professor's" invitation to go up on the stage and to test his mesmeric power. Among other things Prof. Da Kenyon, after putting the objects under his control, seated them on the floor and gave them an im aginary balloon ascension. The result is best told in Harry W agner's own words. "It seemed to me we kept get ting higher and higher, uutil I could hardly breathe. Then he let us drop, and the last I remember I had an awful choking sensation. I guess I was insensible for about half an hour. I will always think I had a nar row escape, for I understand if I had reached the ground ia my imagination it would have been death. "I am just beginning to get around and I ought not to be out today. I am weak and nervous, and if I stand in the sun a few moments I get dizzy. "Dr. Kenyon, I understand, says I had heart disease. There hasn't been any heart disease in the Wagner family so far as I know for 500 years, and I haven't got any more heart disease than a cat, and you know a cat hasn't got heart disease." HAS THE RIGHT IDEA. If JOr. Stewart I Appoint d lie Will Kline All His Help. Df. J. P. Stewart of Clay Center, presi dent of the state board of health, who has been talked of as a candidate to suc ceed Dr. McCasey, is in Topeka today on busiuess. To a State Journal reporter Dr. Stewart said: "Some of my friends have without my consent started a boom for me for the position of superintendent of the asylum here in Topeka, but I want to say that I have not been and am not now a candidate in any sense of the word. I do not want the place, and if I should be elected, I would take it only on one consideration, and that is that I should be allowed to name all the offi cers of the institution from assistant sup erintendent down to coal shoveler. "I understand that in an institution of that kind the superintendent must have full control or his administration will be a failure." Dr. Stewart has been pension examin er at Clay Center since the beginning of Cleveland's first administration. The State Journal's Want and Mis cellaneous columns reach each working day in the week more than twice as. many Topeka people as can be reached through any other paper. This is a fact. JEOLIAN CLUB CONCERT Given I.aat Night at Lihrary Hall Some Excctlant Music It was ten minutes of nine last even ing, when Mr. Albert Evans, of North Tooeka, came forward on the stage at Library hall and said: "Ladies and gen tlemen, the programme is delayed on ac count of the hot and damp weather, and several banjo strings have broken. We'll be on in a minute." In about five minutes the programme wa3 opened by the Eolian baujo club. It is composed of Edward Brennan, IL S. Lawrence, J. L. Streeby, and eight of Mr. Lawrence's pupils. They played the "Martaueau overture" by Vernette. The Amphion quartette was unable to be present, as was also Prof. Henry Wor rall. Mr. James Moore sang two solos in hia usual artistic manner, aud Miss Isabella Lamont, who has come to this city re cently, sang two solos. She has a so prano voice which shows careful train ing. She sang Rossini's "Tyrant, Soon I Loose Thy Chains." Mr. George Weaver, a property man, shoved the chairs and music racks back and forth after each number. Mr. W. F. Roehr's solo on the Ploctro phone was one of the novelties of the evening. He played the "Dance of the Sylphs," by Jaell. The Mandolin club rendered three se lections. It is composed of Mr. Law rence and his pupils, and their playing showed that they had been diligent in their practice. One of the numbers de serving special mention was the "Dento Del Alma" by Anda. The closing number was the "High School Cadet's March," which Philip faousa composed in lSya. Both the mandolin and banjo clubs played that. The audience pres ent was not large, the heat being almost insufferable. The members of the mandolin club appeared in white duck trousers, in the next to the last number.' As they entered they created quite a small sensation. One young lady in the back of the room took one glance at them and exclaimed, "Oh!" This made the audience laugh. Messrs. H. L. Armstrong, L. F. Bron son, Paul Torringtou, Julius Weidling, and W. A. Alexander, acted as ushers. WHEELMEN BARRED OUT. They Will "ot Be Allowed to Run the Handicap. A little difficulty has arisen in regard to the handicap bicycle race on July 4. The following notice has been posted by Mr. William Taylor, chairman of the Kansas division racing board of the L. A. W.: Xo all L. A. W. Members and Amateur Wheel men. I hereby warn you that complaint has been lodged with me regardiug the am ateur standing of the following persons: A. W. Beronius, R W. Hunt, A. C. Duck worth, William Drummond, George Lillie, Jr. By competing with them you also en danger your amateur standing. Signed. Wsi, Taylor, Chairman Kansas Div. Racing Board. This means that it is claimed that the above namodwheelmen have at some time ridden ia a race for a cash prize. As the handicap race on July 4 to Pauline and return is under the direction of the L. A. V.'. racing board, these men will be barred from riding in the race. It is against the rules of the L. A. W. for any wheelman to enter in one of its runes, who has raced for a cash prize. The race will take place, however, at 4 p. m. from Tenth and Kansas avenue, on July 4. A WORTHY COMPLIMENT. We copy the following from a late is sue of the Milwaukee Seutinel: Everything that grows in Kansas Beems to smack of the soil; a distinct and indi vidual flavor of its own diff enentiatea" it from the rest of the belongings of man kind. Ironquili's verses are no exception to the rule; they are not in the least like the newspaper verse of other lands and climes. His own convictions on the sub ject of his chosen state are thus poeti cally expressed: "Of all the states but three will live In storv; Old Massachusetts, with iter l'iyiitouth Koc'k, Ami oiil Virginia, with her noble stock. And sunny Kansas with her woe-; and lory; Tke-;e three will live in sou.; aud oratory. AS iiile ail the others, whit tneir i.lie claims. Will only be reirit'inUered as mere names." And are still further carried out in lines that recount with praise Stories of Jvan-as And of l.,aced;em:n Cradles of freedom " To most newspaper readers the verses scattered abroad from time to time over the signature of Ironquill are not un familiar. Some of them have attained considerable popularity a popularity in which their author's confidence appears in the modest conviction of the prefatory quatrain: When back into the alphabet The critic's sanr.-s shall have crumbled, When iiuo dust Ins hand is humbled. Some verse of mine may iiuger yet. His variety of themes is wide as the ground covered by an all-around news paper man; every event of the day has furnished grist to Ironquill's poetical mill. "The Type" is a rhyme of stick and, ca3C, nor is it the only printer's rhyme; "Politics" and "The Granger's Tex" belong to the political department; there are poems of humor, children's nonsense verses, a whist fable, a Kansas idyl and a free transcription of Heine's "Fisher Maiden." "O'er ftunnv Kansas," "The Violet Star." "Jolin Brown," are among the best and most characteristic verses. A single representative poem is "The Protest," written while the govern ment was removing buried soldiers from the battlefields of secession aud organ izing national cemeteries: Let them rst. let them rest where they fell. Kvery lati!e-iie;d is sacred: If you ie: them stay to tuard it, Ihey will shroud tiiose spots with valor Like a sieli. All the soil w.d seem implanted With th serm of Vital freedom. "Where they spent their live., so grandly Let them dwell Po not rank them up in iields, Vnder pallid marble shields: Let them rest and be cherished Where they fell. Let them rest, let them rest where they fell; On the prairie, in tne forest, 'Neath Hie cypress or the laurel. On the mountain, bv the bayou. in the dell.
