The state executive council ha3 placed
$S,000 in the hands of the state board -of
health for the purpose of "keeping
cholera out of Kansas.'
This paper on Saturday told how State
Treasurer Biddia had refused to allow
the State "Board of Health to use the
$8,000 appropriated by the last legisla
ture to .keep cholera out of the state, for
other purposes.
-The story leaked out this morning
that the State Board of Health has at
last got a majority of the members of
the executive council to place this $3,000
at their disposal, in a way that .Mr. Bid
die's protest won't stop them from get
- ting the money.
It appears that as long ago as last Fri
day four membj.'a of the state board of
health went befc re the executive coun
cil and pleadei unJ threatened aud talk
ed their sweetest and dually succeeded
in- persuading a majority of the council
that it was necessary to giye them the
fs.ooo.
These four members of the state board
"of health, .in - pleading for the
money went so far as to assure
5 the council . on their word of
honor as gentlemen aud as
physicians that it was absolutely neces
sary that this money be used at this time
to improve the sanitary condition of the
state-to "keep cliqlera out of Kansas."
It is understood that when it looked
doubtful about the council giving in,
these members of the board of health
threatened to resign as members of the
board of health unless they were given
this money to t.id them in protecting
Kansas from cholera which has broken
out away oil iu Europe, its nearest ap
proach to the United States being at
Dantzic, Prussia.
The executive council, or at least a
majority uf tlie couucil. finally gave in,
and the $8,000 was placed at the disposal
of the board of health, to be used in
"keeping cholera out of Kansas." At
torney General John T. Little, Secretary
of State It S. Osborn, Auditor Van B.
Prather and Superintendent of Public
Instruction II. X. Gaines voted to allow
the $,000 to be used, while the other
members of the council. Governor L. IX
Leweliiug aud State Treasurer AV. If.
Biddle voted nc, and insisted that their
protest agains: the giving up of the
money be entered on the record of the
council.
It was just tetore the executive coun
cil took this action that Dr. II. A. Dykes
secretary of th-j state board of health as
sured a Statk Jocuxal reporter that the
board was going ahead without the $8,
000' and would do its best to improve
the sanitary condition of the state.
The action of the council is a reminder
that last 'year the state board of health
uaed$2,0.'O of the $10,000 special appro
priation to prevent cholera and that there
was no cholera hearer then than New
York harbor. There was a slight ex
cuse then for spending the money; but
there appears not the slightest now, for
wasting $8,x'J0.
According to the vouchers on file in
the state treasurer's office, the $2,0UJ was
distributed las- summer among the mem
bers of the board of health as follows.
lhe items heitg the different checks
thfy were drawn:
as
Dr. IL J. fees. $400; II Swartz, $200;
A. J. Aude-emg rOo; J. P. Stewart, f joo
P. II I i.; n:v, $-j00; F. Swallow
$1(54.3 , and $::5.70; II. A, Dykes. $2 .0
il M. Hoover, f 00; 1L A. Dykes, $-00.
Dr. Dykes' name appears three times;
o he got $800 of the amount.
VhtMi the action of the council was
learned today it was suggested in politi
cal circles tlia: it was possible that this
. $8,000 was to go into the Populist cam
paign tund.
v hen a Journal reporter asked Chair
man Breidenthal about the matter he
said: "No, s r; not one cent of state
money will be used in our campaign. I
am kaeping a complete record of all
money used it the campaign, both as to
whom it was received from and to whom
paid and for v.-hat purpose; and Mr. Zer
cher, the treasurer of the committee, will
keep a record with which mine must
correspond. Not one cent of state.money
, will be used by the committee or will be
used in the campaign unless it is used
by iniividualn.
"The state board of health is not a
Populist institution and, anyway, we are
protecting agf irst that money being used
ut tlit way. Bob (Secretary feemple)

has just entered his protest as one of the
members of the legislature, knowing- the
intent of the legislature in passing that
appropriation, and I will also entes my
protest against it"
Thid action of Jhe executive council
may materially help the political chances
of Governor I.ewel ling. and Treasurer
Biddle, but the other four state 'officials
will lose votes without number by giv
ing up this $i,000 to the boar 1 of health,
w ho pretend that the money is to be used
in cleaning up the rnudho.es and refuse
in the various cities iu the Ftate.
The state has no shadow of right
to spend monay for scavenger
work of the cities of Kansas. Those
cities raise their own taxes f jr that pur
pose and tiie municipal fund is s-pent
through their own scavenger forces.
The chances are that not a cent will be
spent for cleaning irp any city in Kan
sas. MOKE S0LDIE11S.

In-
creased to 00,000 Men.
Bar Harbor, Me., July 3X -"Recent
events have convinced the people of the
United States that they need more sold
iers." The man who said this was Major
General Schofield, commanding the
United States army, who is here at the
Malvern hotel.
"At least, general, the army now, as
always, is in good condition a:id ready for
any emergency?" was asked.
"Certainly, my dear sir, but recent
events have convinced the public that
they ueed more soldiers. Military men
have been aware for a'long time that the
forces at their command were not large
enough to deal effectively with riotous
disorder that might extend over a wide
area. Consequently they have sought to
interest successive congresses iu a meas
ure that would provide for the enlist
ment of a larger number of men.
'The only effective force for guaran
teeing safe transit to the United States
mail, for suppression of riots at isolated
points, for holding the command at great
strategic railway centers, and generally
for preserving the peace of the union, in
time of disorder in all the states, is in
the army.
"What I advocate is giving power to
the president, in his discretion, to enlist
men up to a maximum of say 60,000 men.
Tnis does not conflict with what 1 have
said of the necessity- for a trained and
disciplined army. Disorders such as
those we have just gone through may al
ways be anticipated. A year ago or more
everyone saw the gathering cloud. The
ignorant and vicious jp?ro snarimg, in
dustries wetfe nagging and factories clos
ing. Was that not warning eaoughV How
easy it would have been then to increase
the army if the president had the power
to increase it."
GEN.
O. O. HOWARD AGKtEi
He Also Ieslre More Kngalan
to Keep
Down l'prisliift.
New York, July SO. "I am in favor
of almost any plan to increase the regu
lar army," said Maj. Gen. O. O. Howard,
commanding the division of the Atlan
tic, in speaking of Gen. Schotield's pro
position to "increase the army to tjJ.uUO.
"The general's idea to give the presi
dent power tj enlist a large force
at his discretion seems to me
a valuable one and the re
sult of mature thought. I should
think it would meet with general appro
val. I believe that a biil should be passed
by which each state should have an addi
tional 1,000 regulars assigned to it. As
General Scholield says, here in the east
we have a line militia. Tno ethcienc3 of
the New York regiments is well known,
and I want no better drilled troops than
I saw in camp in New Jersey a few days
ago.
. "But out west the situation is entirely
different. When the first anarchist out
break was made at Chicago, even Fort
Sheridan was practically without a gar
rison. As tho mob at that time num
bered J24.UOO men, the general, his stall
the governmental buildings in Chicago
were absolutely unprotected.
"There is another point which must be
taken into consideration. Our criminal
class is steadily increasing, as well as
our foreign population. .Estimate the
number of convicts who serve their time
and are uniformly unable to get work.
Then assume that this class organize
and there should be an uprising on their
part, at such a time as during tne recent
lawlessness. New Y ork city could hold
its own, but what other city could?
Please quote me as favoring a material
increase in the size of the regular army."

Montgomery, Ala., July 3 . Alabama
is full of politics. Men, women, and even
children are taking a hand. Feeling all
over the state is intense. Brothers have
ceased speaking to brothers, lifelong
friendships have been shattered, sweet
hearts have become estranged, aud fath

Col. William C. Oates, member of con

Democracy of the state for governor. His
opponent is Keuben" F. Koib, who was
nominated and who is supported by those
who were formerly Democrats, and who
now style themselves Jelfersoniaa Demo

The Birmingham Age-IIeral 1 has care
fully figured over the table of the vote
of 1.92 by counties, and says: "Leaving

JiiO. l. MURRAY DEAD.
He Falls a
Victim
Fever
to Yellow
At
TuxtepSe, Mexico News
lieaches Here by Wire.
DEATH VERY SUDDEN.
A Letter Received From Him
on Saturday,
Saying1 He Was in the Best of
Health.
The sad news of the death of Hon
John A. Murray was received in this city
yesterday by his law partner, John V.
Abrahams. The information was by tel
egram from Ellery Murray, dated Tui
tepec, Mexico, yesterday morning, and
merely announced his brother's death by
yellow fever. Additional information
will undoubtedly be received today. The
news received yesterday made no refer
ence to the health of other members of
the colony, and hence it is inferred they
are all well. It will be a "week before
letters, with a full account, can be re
ceived here.
No intimation had been received of
his illuess, which was probably of short
duration, aud Mrs. Murray was wholly
unprepared for the shock. It was all the
more severe because on the day previous,
Saturday, she had received a letter from
her husband dated Tuxtepec, Friday,
July 20, which advised her that he and
all "of his companions were in perfect
health.
The Mexican colony company, of
which Mr. Murray was president and
general manager, was organized for the
purpose of acquiring lands for himself
and friends, upon which coffee and other
tropical products could be grown. These
lauds were purchased by Mr. Murray and
his company after a two month's investi
gation by himself; and this investigation
included caretui inquiry as to tne neaitu- j
fulness of the tract selected. j
The physicians of this locality, as well
as thos.o of other localities, advised him :
that Tuxtepec was practically free from
yellow fever. No cases had been known
there for twelve years. I
Subsequent investigation by other par- i
ties was also made as to the desirability
of this locality for a place of residence. !
The information was uuformiy to the
effect that it was a healthful locality,
and that nothing need be feared by for
eigners who contemplated settling there.
Tne exceptionally hot and dry period
through which this portion of Mexico
has just passed, is undoubtedly the rea
son lor the. extension of yellow fever so
far inland at this time. The apparent
safety of 'the project, from a bealth
standpoint, is attested bv tho fact that of
all those who have gone there, no one
has expressed the slightest doubt on this
point.
John A. Murray was one of the best
known and most highly respected among
the young men in Kansas. He was 33
years old. For the past ten years he has
been a prominent ligurs in the political
and legal field. He was county attorney
of Sumner county in 1884 and in 1886
was elected to the legislature from that
count-, ana about six years ago removea
from Wellington to Topeka, forming a
law partuersnip with F. IL Foster. His
reputation as an attorney was more than
state-wide. He has been prominently
connected with the prosecutions of liquor
cases.
Mr. Murray was best known as being
author of the Murray law making the
prohibitory amendment effective. He
was only 2 years old when he was elec
ted to the legislature and was made
chairman of the committee on temper
ance. It was while chairman of this
committee that he drafted the bill which
afterward became a law. It provided
for the sale of liquor by the drug stores,
made the nuisance feature of the law
concerning places where liquor is sold
more sweeping and provided for the ex
amination of witnesses by the county at
torney to secure evidence. It was this
latter clause of the bill thaf was recently
declared unconstitutional by the su
preme court
Mr. Murray was married in 1883 to
Miss Fannie Mikesell, a daughter of one
of the prominent residents of Sumner.
Four children have been born to them,
three boys and one girl. The oldest
child is eight vears of age and the
youngest but six. months. The family
live at SH Fillmore street.
Mr. Milrray has made three trips to
Mexico, having left Topeka on his last
trip but six weeks ago. Ho was a mem-(
ber of the First Congregational church
of this city and has always been prominently-identified
with church work. He
was a graduate of the Ann Arbor law
school.
A feraorinl Service.
The To.peka bar association held a
meeting in the district court this mot n
ing, John Guthrie presiding to take some
action regarding the death of John A.
Murray, who was one of its most promi
nent members.
Frank H. Foster who was for a long time
Mr. Murray's law partner, stated, lhat
as soon as the family received further
information regarding the death which
will probably be a week at least, a me
morial service will be held in ttle Con
gregational church, for according
to law the body cannot be brought back
for five years. A committee of live was
appointed to prepare suitable resolutions.
It is composed of F. H. Foster, J. B.
Larimer, A. W. Dana, James A. Trout
man and A. IL Vance.
Iolllver ana II?rp-r Coming-.
Congressman J. P. Dolliver, of Iowa,

WOJIEN AT THE POLLS.
eBoleter ou Scene lurlog tt School Klec
llou In m Jerir Town.
New York, July 30. Reports of the
school election held at Vineland, N. J.,
last Friday indicate that there was a hot
test kind of a time. The first election of
school trustees for Vineland under the
township act recently passed by the leg
islature was held. The women made a
bitter fight to exercise the right of suf
frage, but were defeated, and left vowing
vengeance against the election offi
cers responsible for their being
denied the privilege of voting. The
scenes at the polls were exciting. Well
dressed women pushed their way through
the crowd and hurled abusive epithets
at Chairman Lord and the judges. The
ballot-box barely escaped smasning. Po
lice officers were assaulted, and tne riot
was quelled with difficulty. The follow
ing telegram was received by 11. W. Wil
bur, a prominent woman suffragist:
. State Hot se, Irenton,
July 27, 1BU4.
i ) Ji. w. liOur:
The attorney general is of the opinion
that jfomeii may vote at all school elec
tions. Signed A. B. Poland,
State Superintendent.
Armed with this, and having engaged
II. S. Alvord as counsel, the women de
termined to elect their candidates, Mrs.
j Chance and Airs. Briston. When the
polling places were opened, an immense
j crowd of women and children poured
j into the buildings. A temporary chair
j man was appointed and the meeting
i called to order. Kev. W. Gilbert was
nominated by the Equal Suffragists, and
Charles P. Lord, mayor, was named by
the antis for permanent chairman. At
this point the tumult reached its highest.
The women, several hundred strong,
lined up, and marching to the ballot-box,
endeavored to cast their votes. Capt.
3IcDonald, who was in charge, placed his
hand over the box, and said that only
men would be allowed to vote. He was
hissed.
A colored woman managed to force her
ballot into the box and then struggled
j out. of the crowd. Charles KugUley,
j owner of "he largest 6hoe shop iu Soutti
j Jersey, was in the crowd, accompanied
j by his son Percy. He tried to reach the
i box, saying he would smash it to pieces
! if the women could not vote. "If you
do, I will smash you head," yelled Col.
Wanzer, while at the same time Captain
j McDonald grabbed the box. Several
! women escaped serious injury in the
crusu,
Lord was elected chairman and George
Boyuton and Amos Gombar tellers. After
announcing that no ballots would be re
ceived from women, Mr. Lord opened
the polls for the election of trustees.
Mr. Alvord marshaled the women in line
and they attempted to deposit their bal
lots, but the slips were thrown on the
lioor during hisses.- The indignant wo
mfen called Mayor Lord coward aud
brute, and have declared a boycott ou
Boynton, who is in the ice business.
NOT A GREEN THING
In the Western Two-thirds
of Xe-
Omaha, Neb., July 30. Never in the
history of Nebraska did the future for
the farmer look" so discouraging as at
present. Fields of corn that promised a
bountiful yield and a winter of plenty
a week - ago stand today dry and with
ered as though swept by tlames.
Blasted by. the simoon of last week,
the crop was almost utterly ruined. For
hundreds ofmiles from the river there
is a prospect for a partial crop yet, if
rain comes eoon. Light local rains fell
in this region last night, but there is no
likelihood of a general fall soon.
In the western two-thirds of the state
there is no hope. Every green thing is
withered. Farmers who had calculated
ou an unusually heavy crop of corn, and
had invested their all in cattle and hogs
to feed, find themselves wanting in the
way of fodder and are sending their
stock to market as fast as possible to get
rid of th.e animals before, they begin to
starve. .
This is shown in the receipts of hoga
at the South Omaha market on Saturday
when 20,000 head came in. The normal
Saturday receipts at these yards are
about 4,000 hogs.
During the week 72,003 head were re
ceived. The normal weekly receipts are
about 30,000 head.
Many farmers are already on their way
out of the state, there being no hope for
them to get through the winter.

LOS ANGELES SHAKEN.
A Sharp Shock ef Eartliquake is Kepi in
California.
Los Asgkleh, Cal., July 3J. This city
was shaken by an earthquake last even
ing at 9:11 o'clock. The direction was
from the northeast to southeast, though
most of the movement was more of an
upheaving than of an undulating charac
ter. It is described as a sharp shock but
not doing damage.
At Acton there were three distinct
shocks, the most severe ever felt in that
region; but no particular damage is re
ported. The peculiar feature of the
affair at that place, however, was that
immediately after the vibrations ceased
a large meteor, similar to the one which
attracted so much attention" on Friday
night here, was seen to fall in the north.
It appeared like an immense ball of blue
tire and apparently moved from the
zenith to the north in a rapid way.

urgent need for retaining them he will
ask that the troops be recalled.

MISTAKEN IDENTITY,
A. Crazy Man Regards Ipuiy Sheriff C.
I . WMtson As the Ie vll.
A young man by the name of K. C.
Taylor was adjudged insane today by a
jury before Probate Judge Elliott.
Taylor is a young man 25 years old,
and his friends say that his insanity is
caused by a love affair in Franklin coun
ty, though he raves only on religion, lie
is a member of the Seventh Day Advent
ist denomination, and his business has
been a canvasser for sectarian books. He
came from Ottawa last Friday . and has
been acting strangely ever since.
He was suffering under the-delusion
to-day that Deputy Sheriff C. D. Watson,
who nad charge of him, vas the devil.
"Oh you think you will get power over
me." he said, "but you can't do' it,
devil. This is only my weak
body. My soul is in heaven, but you
can't govern my body. No, sir. ',Vou
are slick, but you can't slide. Get be
hind me; get behind me, I tell you."
lie was put on the stand and Dr.
Righter proceeded to question him. lie
answered clearly when asked about his
parents and other matters, but he kept
turning his head to Watson and
addressing him as the "devil," told him
to keep away while the questioning was
going on. "New, devil," said he, "quit
making him ask so many questions."
The doctor at once quit. He pretended
to recognize several members of the
jury, calling W. D. Disbrovv "Uncle
Allen."
There was no doubt about Taylor's in
sanity, and papers committing him to the
state insane asylum were drawn up.

"Did you say what j-ou were rej

porter. "The reports of what I Rail werts
greatly exaggerated. I did say th.tt

"I notice in your syndicate letter, pub

ownership of railroads. Did you jneati

the reporter.
"No, sir, I did not mean thatl" I thu

emphasis. "I am opposed to the i- jv
ernment ownership of ,ii)rod-
and have always been and I waul thdi

such a move a great disaster. What 1
am afraid of is that we are driftin,; to
