Unlike Ejsu Mr. I'uUman flings tenaciously to his berth-right. At present Mr. Debs is wrapped in the Bolitude of his own presumptuousness. Til f. re is a suspicion abroad that one of the cause of the rioti ig at Chicago is to be found in its baseba.l club. Dehs" doctors say thi-.t he has nerve disease. This c orrospon Is with the pop ular diagnosis it is abnormal develop ment. Japan has consented to arbitrate a matter that she considered just cause for war and yet we send missionaries over there! With Hill Hackney ai:d George Gould both in Europe, neither silver or gold is likely to get any great advantage as to representation. As THii sugar senators look at the work of the house com:nittee they won der if the bargain was they had to de liver the goods. Not the least uncomfortable feature of the labor troubles to home people is to have to approve of scuiething Cleve land has done. Governor Waite doesn't look particu larly like a man who thirsted after blood and bullets but you can't always judge by a man's harmless locks. " -. j If California strikers want the last lingeriug spark of sympathy for their causa to disappear, le; them keep up the work of wrecking trains. The Coxey armies have been pressing on to Washington in the general inter ruption of transportation with a persist ence worthy of a more profitable busi ness. Billy Bichas didn't get the nomina tion for congress, but he named the man. This may be a year of j olitical changes, but it appears to be an oil year for polit ical purity. The new sleeping car company which has been formed at St. Liuis has chosen a very opportune tims for organizing and the place of its origin is suggestive of the business. If workingmen would vote for their interests with, the readiness and unani mity with which they s;rike, it would be but a short time until they had nothing whatever to complain c f . W n en considering the troubles that the country is going through this sum mer, the people shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the Demoora'.ic party is pri marily responsible for them. The Nicaragua canal it is claimed by some will prevent any more panics. It seems to be regarded by a certain class of statesmen as a sort cf patent medicine that will cure all ills of the body politic. Governor Altgelu's refusal to in terfere in PrendergasCs behalf is one of the sensible things he will have to look back on but it looks jrttty small beside the mountains of mist ikes he has made. . . i The Christian Endeavor has gained more members the pa&t year than at any time during its existence which only goes to prove the theory th it religious organ izations flourish in tin.es of great indus trial depression. The good people at Chautauqua were so anxious to hear news from the strike that they admitted na papers on Sunday for the lirst time. Seligious scruples get along tint rate till it comes to a ques tion of news. George Gould's yasht has been beat en five times now by the Britannia. Jlr. Gould couldn't have been more British if he had boea the Prince of Wales' lackey. America disclaims any Interest in him. Although the strike has already cost millions of dollars to tbe country a con gressional committee will junket all summer investigating it, resulting in a pheasant trip to them, a large cost to the people and volumes on volumes of use less reports. Mrs. Annie Diggs in her speech at the city park yesterday said that the Pullman company managers sent edito rials to Topeka, and of course to other places, for publication. The Journal can throw a little light on this subject Early last week this paper received through the mails a collection of edito rials, written and printed by Chicago editors. The typographical work was excellent and on the best cf book paper, and the editorials so arranged that they could be clipped out and used. There was nothing about the package to indi cate who sent it, but presumably it was sent at the direction of Vice President Wickes of the Pullman company. The Journal did not use the editorials, first ly because it prefers to make its own comments on passing events; secondly because they did not agree with its views of the matter, and thirdly because it doesn't like ready-made opinions fur nished by outsiders, anyway. HONDURAS LOTTERY CO. It Is Being Shut Oat of tbe Malls In tnis Country. Washington, July 13. The attention of the postoffice department has been called to the Honduras Lottery compa ny, which has been advertising in a large number of papers throughout the coun try that its presidency is a manu facturing concern in Missouri all propositions for supplies machinery S3 well a3 business municationa should be sent to the and and pany's new address. All newspapers containing these advertisements are be ing barred from the use of the m lils. A long line of rulings of the depart ment has held that these constitute ad vertisements of lottery concerns and ac cordingly the papers are not liable to be thrown out of the mails but to prosecu tion under the lottery laws. PLOTS AND 3I011K PLOTS. France in Terror Not Knowing Where llonibt Will Fall Next. Paris, July 13. The Matin today pub lishes a statement that the txilice of this city have been informed that an anarch ist recently left the United States for England, en route to France, having in his possession several bombs. Previous to the depiarture of tho an archist referred to, according to tho Matin, a plot was hatched in the United States to explode bombs simultaneously in the Elysee Palace.the senate, chamber of deputies, and thfo palace of justice here. FIRED THE CARNOT. An Anarchist Tries to Deitroy the New French Ironclnd. Toulon, July 13. The authorities of this port are investigating what appears to be the attempt of an anarchist to de stroy by fire the new French Ironclad Carnot, which was launched yesterday. A large bottle of turpentine had been emptied over the wood work of the hold in a manner well calculated to cftii-se a rapid spread of the lire. Near the bottlfj a box of matches was found, and several burned matches were around the spot where the tlames burst forth. IN THE POLICE COURT. Six Men and Two Women f r Various Offences. f ! At the municipal matinee this morn ing Judge Ensminger had more culprits before him than it has been his good for tune to j udicially harpoon for a long time. Willie White was the first penitent sinner to appear before the bar. He is before the bar freqently but more often he is behind it. He is charged with being a fugitive from justice, and he was turned over to the state on the caarge of jail breaking, lie was among the five who dug a hole through the north wall of the city prison and escaped about two weeks ago. Willie is only 1 '3 years old but as tough as a restaurant short-cut, and it is said that after escaping from jail he sneaked home and stole nearly all his father's clothes and sold them. - James McCoy was there, too. He is a colored man 2J years old who sol 1 beer and whisky at his home, 9JU Fillmore street. He is said to have sold a brand of feet-mixer warranted to produce the big head quicker than first honors in & graduating class. His case was con tinued. Ella Lynch, the girl arrested yesterday for fighting her mother, was found guilty and tined $10. She is the one who al lowed her grief to get beyond her cjt trol in the shape of abnormal sobs that made the windows in the pension office rattle. The evidence showed that Ella sneaked up behind her mother who was sewing on the front porch, and dealt several telling blows behind tho ear. She also broke several pitchers and other articles. She claimed her mother pulled her hair first, but the court held that to be the inalienable right of a parent. Then came Willie Lawson, aged twelve years. He was fined $3 for disturbing the peace at the City park when Gov ernor Waite was speaking yeserday. lie fought with another boy and to judge from their threats there was danger of both of them wading in blood up to their necks, but policeman Charles Lindsey separated them. Then Lawsoa refused to quit following the other boy. He gave Judge Ensminger as his reason for this, '-I t'ought if I quit follerin' de kid he'd tink I was afeared of him." John Ward, a young man 23 years old, was arrested at the city park for stealing vegetables from a farmer's wagon at the city park at the Populist tally. Ward toid the court that he was really hungry, or he wouldn't have taken it. As the farmer didn't appear against him, and Ward . looked sort of decent, he was acquitted. W. E. Johnson, a colored man 21 years old ,pleaded guilty to assault, aad paid a $3 fine. Florence Douglas, whose escapade last evening is mentioned elsewnere, forfeited a $3 deposit for disturbing the peace. Thomas McMann, a man suspected of being a murderer, is Btill held as a "sus pect." . For a family medicine, Ayer's Sugar Coated Pills are unrivaled. They eradi cate disease. Ayer's Ague Cure is a warranted spe cific for all malaria diseases and billiary derangements. 312 and 114 West 8th, Peerless Bteam , Laundry. TWO W03IEN AT WAll. llary Lease and. Annie Diggs Make a Sensational Scene AT THE BIG POPULIST RALLY. Mrs. Leaie Criticises Sirs. IMgres Kpeech and 31rs. Diezs Demands is Retraction-tiov. Waite'" Speeeli. The Populist rally yesterday was cer" tainly a big thing. There were three big audiences, beginning with 3,000 in the morning, 6,000 in the afternoon and prob ably 7,000 or 8,000 at night. The larger part of this crowd was present to see the celebrity, Governor Waite. Governor Waite arrived at the city park shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday after noon. Governor Lewelling introduced in a well worded speech of a very few min utes Governor Davis II. Waite, the "war governor of Colorado." As the gray bearded, spectacled old geutleman stepped to the edge of the platform, he was met by a most flattering shout from the crowd of more than five thousand that had assembled to hear him speak. The governor is certainly not a blood thirsty looking man, and his remarks were not those a man would choose with which to stir up warfare and riot. His manner was mild and his language very far from that which the majority of his auditors had expected after reading the accounts of his powder scented ut terances. For the most part the governor devoted his time to a defense of his position in the late Colorado labor troubles, claim ing that he was able to cope success fully with the situation, and desired no interference from Mr. Cleveland or the United States troops. He also referred to the Cripple Creek mining trouble. The lirst part of his speech consisted of a description of the birth, growth and success of the People's party. In speak ing of the Omaha convention and the platform that declared the approach of moral, financial and political ruin, he said: "'At that time the country was in a comparatively prosperous condition al though the policies of both the old parties if persisted in were certainly ruinous. We put such planks in our platform as promised better times, went before the people with that famous platform you all know so well and carried twenty-two electoral votes five months from the birth of the party. "Was not this record wonderful? The Republicans were in power then. The Democrats are in power now and what a terrible state of affairs exists today. And what remedy is offered to you by either of the old parties? None, alsolutely none. Their only idea is to follow the president's financial policy which is in the interest of Wall street to pay our debts with borrowed money. How can anybody pay a debt with borrowed money? To have better times you must have a change of administration. In no other way can debts be paid nor workmen given employment. Open the national treasury to free coinage of silver in a ratio of sixteen to one." Mr. Waite then directed his attention to the Puilman strike and the trouble that attended it. "This strike can never succeed because the entire armed forces of the United States are against the suc cess of the laboring man. The United j States government is using all its mili tary power to build up monopoly." Although the crowd had been almost oppressively quiet till now, this remark called forth a tumult of applause. The speaker then proceeded to read some ed- ! itorials clipped from Denver papers and i commented on them. The crowd was ; not interested in this, however, and the i governor continued: j "In my own state,within the laBt week, men have been arrestea Dy deputy United States marshals without warrant and thrown into jail for sixty days. Within the last week the United States has sent troops into five states, which is useless and unlawful. "We have law less elements in the state of Colorado, but they are not among the laboring men. Only a short time ago my Attorney General Tarsuey was taken from his hotel in Colorado Springs, car ried to a canon five or six miles from town and there tarred and feathered. And what was his offense? "It was charged that he had been brutal in his treatment to the mine owners and that he had defended in the court room men whom he had had arrested as at torney general. That he had incited by his course riot and lawlessness among the miners and had permitted the de struction of property. Instead of inciting riot among the miners at Cripple Creek his entire course was to prevent the des truction of party and keep down riot and bloodshed. lie was working under orders from his chief. 'It was not necessary to call upon Unci'- Sam. I sent the Colorado National Guards down there and .the disturbing elements were quieted and the national guards did not find it necessary to shoot a man. Applause. Tho papers stated that General Tarsney defended lawless mobs. 1 deny it most emphatically. The trouble was settled, there were no arrests and no men were thrown into jail as now. There was no insurrection and the state was fully able to keep within bounds and quell what was simply a drunken miners' row that is likely to occur in any mining camp. "And yet tho papers of both the old parties condemn the Populist movement and the Populist officials for doing their duty. Why all this bitterness? It is be cause they realize that for the first time in twenty years a party has arisen which promises to change the financial policy of the nation and give the laboring man diceut pay for his labor." Governor Waite closed his speech very prettily and accepted gracefully a mod erate amount of applause. Fred Close spoke for a few moments following and finally introduced Heavy Comedian Thomas, who started to sing his one-legged song but got hold of the wrong leg and sang one verse of the Re publican version before he noticed it and was compelled to retire with rather more precipitancy than dignity without finish ing until he could go up town and get the Populist side of the story. In retiring he sail that he had just received a tele gram saying that a dear frieud of his was ill and wanted to see him. The fact of the matter is there are two ver sions of the song and Thomas had the Republican one, which of course didn't fit. There were then cries for Mrs. Diggs and the little woman stepped to the edge of the platform dressed in a thin white dress of dotted mull and received her greeting of applause. u.

THEY CAN'T LAST LONG AT THESE PRICES. i ; i r J 625 Like the speakers that had preceded her Mrs. Diggs had a few words to de vote to the Capital and other newspapers that had referred to her as anarchistic. Iu speaking of the change necessary in the government of the nation before bet ter times could ensue and in furthering the argument that the country is in the hands of the moneyed classes, she quo ted from the late Senator Plumb: "Fi nancial conspiracies breed revolution." Then she switched off on the Pullman strike and the A. R. U., and eaid, "Who is helping the A. R. U., and the laboring men but the Populist party? When we got up this picnic we gave the strikers the privilege of selling refreshments at stands on the ground because we knew they needed the money for the support of their wives and children who may soon be lingering on the verge of starva tion but this Topeka Republican city ad ministration charged them $2. for each and every stand. I think there are a great many people here who would be willing to help the men who have been shut out of employment. I move that we take up a silver collection for them and I will start it with a contribu tion myself," and she held up half a dol lar. A committee was appointed to pass the hat and Mrs. Diggs continued her address, and got in a few words for suf frage. "This has been a government for the men people. It ha3 been well fathered, perhaps, but it has never been well mothered, and that is what is the matter with it now. We Populists are going to see that this condition of affairs is changed, and with that plank in our platform we will have no trouble iu re electing that good man, Governor Lew elling. Cheers. People who have op posed him and his renomination and have fought him bitterly were traitors to the party and unworthy to be called Populists, but they are now in line again." Mrs. Lease eat on the platform and when these words were uttered by Mrs. Diggs, she smiled sarcastically. In speaking further of the railway con dition of the country Mrs. Diggs said that the only Bolution of the problem was government ownership of railroads and this utterance was greeted with hearty applause. She was not very hard on the Republican party at any time durfng her address and said: "I don't say that the Republican party is composed of thieves.. I know better. There are lots of good and honest men in tKe Republican party, and I do not un derstand how they can stay there." After Mrs. Diggs had finished. Singer Thomas broke out in the same old place, but he had hold of the correct leg this time and waded through as usual. Mrs. Lease was anxious to talk now and as Mr. Close had previously asked her to on his own hook without consult ing the wishes of the committee and there were now requests for her from the crowd, she came forward in a black and wine silk dress and s triumphant smile. It seems that she had not been put on the programme and one of the commit tee toid a Journal reporter that she was not wanted but she had come to talk and no man on the committee was big enough to head her off. Mrs. Lease was mad. You could Bee it. The first thing she did was to go after Mrs. Diggs. "I am gltd to see that GREATEST . BARGAINS i KANSAS AVENUE. certain individuals are now lauding the governor and praising the administration who one 6hort year ago knew nothing outside of one little ism prohibition who called me an anarchist, and who telegraphed over the country that the governor was a traitor." Mrs. Dijrgs sat only a few seats back, and at this her face whitened, and arising she walked calmly to the front of the platform, straight up to Mrs. Lease, and said: "That is false. Please take it back." But -Mrs. Lease was not there to take anything back. Looking straight over the little woman's head she waved her arms and swung her body and declared in her deep orotund, "I believe I have this floor for a few moments." Mrs. Diggs then took things iato her own hands and turning to walk back to her place on the platform she exclaimed audibly, "It's a lie, just the same." A voice from the rear of the platform called out to to the speaker: "Please do not devote your time to personalities." But Mrs. Lease could not be stopped un til she had added: "Those people who said that Mrs. Lease would not talk to the people of Kansas here today have found out their mistake, and will find out it they attempt to stop me, that they will have a bigger war on their hands than Pullman has." No one tried to stop her and she con tinued her speech omitting personalities for the time being while Mrs. Diggs was called hither and thither upon the plat form to receive the consolation offered her by her friends. "I almost got myself into it," she said, and in answer to the reporter's question if she would reply shrugged her shoulders and said: "I hardly consider it necessary. In isn't worth it." The crowd all this time was spell bound. It was dumfouuded, astonished out of utterance and amazed at Mrs. Lease's attack. Ihe speaker then turned her attention to national politics in a general way, and talked for the success of the party in na tional affairs, but left the state of Kansas and Governor Lewelling str.ctly alone. Iu reviewing the financial situation she said: "This is no time for personal wrangling. This is no time ior one woman who calls herself a reformer and claims to be working for the party's good to stand upon a platform and brand an other as a liar. Oh, my God, convert the heart of this socalled reformer, that she may see the conditions that this day con-' front the people, and their remedy. "There is only one party in line with the teachings of God and the best result for the common people, and that is the Populist party." At about this point in the speech Mrs. Lease was interrupted by a "brother" who wanted to know if there "is any truth in the report that you have left the Populists and joined the Prohibitionists?" Mrs. Lease'g smile extended at this and she made answer, "As regards intoxicat ing liquors I am an abolitionist. 1 am also a Prohibitionist in this way: I wish we could prohibit narrow minded, weak brained women who call themselves re formers from running at large to call other women liars. Now, if there is any thing else you would like to ask, fire away." Mrs. Lease closed by extending a chal lenge to "any Democratic lawyer (mean ing David Overmyer) to meet me in de- DEALERS, HAVE THE in bate as to whether or not the propovi suffrage amendment is constitutional.'-' One of her characteristic utterarici i was that "while tho churches are trying to keep the people out of hell, we are trying to keep hell out of the people." Mrs. Lease was done now, an.i Fred Close read a resolution of sympathy for the striking railrond and other wimluvi'i, and it was unanimously adopted. Tho meeting was then adjourned and tho crowd went home to supper. THE liVliNlX, MEEfl.MI. Governor W.iiie Mk Hi. I'fiuciptl .V I lrs at Nijlit.
