The Rock Islun I Ceases to Run Trains Into the Town From the East Today. STARTS FK03I ST. JOE. All Roads Now Dependent on One Line. The Brides Will Very Soon Bo Useless. St. Joseps, Ma, Aug. 3. The Rock Island road ha3 stopped iunning trains into AtcaUon as a result of the river washing Beeral miles of its tracks away. The through train which formerly start ed, from Atchison now- starts from here. The Burlington company has noti fied all line j tiding ita tracks between this city and Atchison to build branches connecting their lines, as the line is too much crowded with five roads running trains over it The Saata Fe is considerably worried about the situation. All the other roads, including the Santa Fe and the Hoct Island, have been using- the I v. C, bf- J. C. 15. track for five miles out of Atch ison, and au trains that can be conven iently, ara being abandoned. General Superintendent Mudge of tho fcanta Fe thiugs that it would require at least au outlay of $100,00 to keep the river from catting through. None of the roads are taking any steps to stop it. HOW FUNDS ARE RAISED. Lolantl Having; PublUhed Iireilenttial Letter, tlie Compliuiaat Kelurned, Chairman Breidenthal of the Populist state central committee is now "playing even" with Chairman Leland of the Re publican stile central committee. About a week ago the Jtepublican com mittert gave out a CfJPy of a letter written by lireidenthal asking for $5 contribu tions to carry on the campaign. Kreident :ial retaliates today by giving out the following letter: i y Deah !mk You have been recom mended to us as a reliable liepubl-can interested in Republican success. The stiite comuittee this year has no funds except those contributed by the people. Wo have no ollicers in the state or na tion who can aasiat us in a financial way :n the campaign. Vv'e need funds badly. There ii a great demand for literature, which we must publish and get out at once. We would like to enlist your serv ices. Can you not raise us Bomo money in your neighborhood, any amount from $5 to $10j and remit to us at once, giv ing name, if possible, of each contrib utor and a -count he contributed? If not tLe name, give us the name of your township, ward or precinct, and it will be to credited" upon our books. Please take hold of this with some en thusiasm, as it is of great necessity at this time. We believe that every citizen of Kansas who realizes the conditions, is anxious that there should be a Republi can victory in this state. It is to his in terest tina icially that the burden under which we have been struggling for two years sheuld be lifted and Kansas be herself again. Help us in this cause. If we can get the great mass of earnest Republicans actively at work, there is no question of our success. This we must d ), and you can materially aid us. Let us hear from you soon and oblige. Very truly, Signed j J. L. Bit i stow, Sec. Topeka, Kan., Jul" 31, 1SU4. Chairman Breidenthal has discovered that the Republicans secured the letters written by him to J. Q. Adorns of Stock ton and he says that Adams never re ceived the letter. There is nothing particularly inj urious to either party in the letters published. Bjth chairmen appear to be following the usual course in raising funds wnieh are regarded as perfectly legitimate, ex cept that the Republican letter is more clever and doesn't "give away" so many facts as Breidenthal's. THE TOPEKA SEWER CASE filially DlipM.J of Tod ly no Fat ma the Oisinct Court I Concerned. Lawrence, Aug. 3. In the Topeka sewer case J udge Benson today overruled th city's motion for a new trial. The court also decided against the city in the point raised that the judgment was in excess of original contract prices. The city of Topeka was given 120 days time in which to prepare its case for the supreme court. The clfeims for material and labor were ordered made first lien on the judg ment. These claims aggregate about $-'0,000. The result of this ruling will wipe out the $4,500 that was figured aa the Decker, Mullins & Berry part of the judgment, and reduce the allowance to the bank about $15,000. As it now stands of the $73,000 awarded, $l'0,0jO will fro to meet the labor and material claims, and 53,000 to the Kan sas National bank of Topeka. A large attendance of the Topeka bar was present at the hearing to day. At long the attorneys here are E. J. Dallas Matt Campbell, J. E. Mc Fariand, W. P. Douthitt, F. II. Foster, J. B. Larimer, S. B. Iseuhart, Rankin Mason, Henry Keeler. Today s action disposes of the case till it reappears in the supreme court. Annual Tax Levy. The loard of county commissioners will hold their annual meeting next Monday morning. At that time the board will make the annual tax levies for all purposes u.nd receive the annual report of the county auditor. The levy it is be lieved will not vary materially from last year, waen it was: General revenue, 3 3-10 mills; bond interest, 1 T-IO mills; total, 3 mills. The school levy is made by districts, and varies from seven to four teen nulla, TO SUE SHERIFF RURDUE. The A. It. C. Taken In the Cue of ttae Moore llru hr. The local lodge of the A. R. U. has em ployed and retained Lawyer W. C. Webb and J. G. Waters and will push damage suits against Sueriil Burdge f jr the im prisoning "without due authority and right," of men brought here and tnrown into jail at the instigation of Chief Detec tive J. J. Kinaey of the Santa Fe and his deputies. 'i here-have been, the A. JL U. claims, fifteen of these men fidseiy held, seven from Dodge City, two frani Argentine, one each from Chanute, Xickersou, Flor ence and Newton, and two from Ottawa. The arrest of the two Moore boys from Ottawa seems to be really the main cause of the suit, and now the union proposes to bring as many suits as they can. Trie btory of the arrest of the Moores was told in yesterday's Journal. The Moore brothers say that one of them has never been employed by the company, and the other has not been in the com pany's employ for several months. Tney were arrested at. the close of the trial at Ottawa of tiie railroad man btilsou for insulting their mother, and the A. Li. U. claims tii.it the arrest was made ou a telegraphic order from Mr. Kinney. The story further is, that awaiting the arrival of the Topeka" train, they were taken to the couuiy jail at Oaawa, but the sheriff of Frankuu county refused to hold them without the leal authority, so they were guarded at the hotel till the train came. At Topeka, it is said, the Moore broth ers were placed in jaii without any com mitment papers, and now they will sue Snerill Burdge for damages. The sum asked in eacn case has not yet been de cided on, but it will probably be not less than $10,000. Sheriff Burdge was seen by a Jour nal reporter this afternoon and declared that he had heard nothing of it. "1 guess they all had commitments that wont into the jail," he said. "I don't know whether the papers were there when the attorneys called or not. I am not always there. 1 am sure, however, that the Moore boys were imprisoned iu a thoroughly legal manner, and that there were commitment papers for both of them. I think the matter will bear investigation." The sheriff takes the matter easily and does not seem worried. The papers in the case have not all been made ready yet, but the retaining fee ha been paid the attorneys and the A. R. U. people declare the suit will bo pushed as rapidly as possible. The same attorneys have also been re tained in the matter of the United States against "Eugene V. Dibs and one thous and others" in the state of Kansas. It will be remembered that during the late strike a restraining order was issued to these men and they were summoned to appear before the United Slates court here to e how why they should not be permanently enjoined from tamp ering with or trespassing on railroad property; $ti00 was raised yesterday afternoon by R. J. Sloat and B. M. Wal lace to defray the attorney's fees and other expenses incidental to tho case. The men will therefore appear on next Monday before Judge Foster in the per sons of their attorneys, Webb and Wa ters, and other attorneys who represent men from other towns of Kansas.

Senate Conferrees Think There's Been Enough Discussion. , A Snsrar Schedule lias Been Prepared it is Said. IT IS PROTECTIVE Will Be Offered to Housa as thh Extreme Limit. Bland Will Introduce a Resolu tion for Free Su?ar. Washington-, Aug. 3. The tariff con ference appears to have reached very nearly the paint at which either an early agreement will be reached or a decision to report a disagreement. The senate conferrees apparently have arrived at the conclusion that there has been al ready a sufficient exchange of views upon general lines and that the time has come when the direct issue must be raised. It is stated tUat a sugar schedule has been prepared which the senate will accept and which is to be presented to the house members as the extreme limit to which the senate will go. The schedule, it is said, still provides a differential duty on rerined sugar and in other particulars maintains the pro tective features of the senate schedule. Representative Bland has introduced , a resolution instructing the committee on ways and means to report a bill placing all sugars on the free list, and for rais iug $ 100,000,000 revenue by the income tax. Mr. Bland says concerning the resolu tion: "1 have not consulted Mr. WTilsou or anyone else, but have acied on my own judgment in sub mitting tho resolution. My pur pose is to press it if there is any indication that the general tariff bill will fail. The proposition is some what different from that suggested in Mr. Wilson's speech (at the time the president's letter to him was read), as it proposes raising the necessary govern ment revenue by an income tax. '1 his feature is essential, however, if sugar is placed on the free list. I believe this separate tariff measure would quickly pass both branches of congress if the general bill failed." HARD BLOW AT WHISKY. The Catholic Church Continues Ita War on Saloon Keeper. St. Paul, Aug. 3. The Catholic Total Abstinence association today began the work of changes in the constitution. '1 he resolutions adopted strongly endorse the papal delegate's temperance views. They state thar the union "sees in the recent action of Bishop Watterson, which has been so nobly sustained by Mgr. Satoili, a long step in the right direction. It is believed that this action will crys tallize the influence of the church against the saloon and will stamp this letter indelibly upon the irreconcil ble enemy of the church. The de cision of the papal delegate cannot fail to give additional authority to the recommendation of the court of Balti more, that all Catholic saloon keepers abandon as soon as they can the danger ous traffic and embrace a more becoming way of making a living. "The decision wiil serve as a renewal of the invitation which our holy father, Leo XIII has already addressed to all prienis of the laud to enter into the work of temperance reform. "And with the clergy strongly commit ted against the saloon, the day of vindi cations of the church in America will be near at hand. The scandal ou a prepon derating number of Catholics in the sa loon business is a disgrace too long en dured. Whatever the cause of the fact, a new day is at hand." THE EYER READY MELISH. It M ay lie Sent to Olntha if Striker Get ltioi ous. Omaha. Neb., Aug. 3. All the South Omaha packing houses did a little kill ing today, a few new men having been employed to take the places of the strikiug butchers.

It I Said the ex-Senator "Approached." the UepabllaAa Committee. II. B. Kelly's espousal of the Populist cause has created a great deal of talk among the politicians. It now appears from the gossip that is in circu.ation that Kelly had several strings to pull in making his change of political faith. A member of the Republican Btate central committee said today: "When the rumor was first circulated that Kelly had become a Populist he had a conversation with a prominent Repub lican. He said that he was a Republi can but that he had some obligations Which must be met and that he had to provide for his family. lie said that this would require about $ 150 a month and that if he was guaranteed that amount he would enter the campaign for the Republicans. He also said that he had received many inducements from the Populists and that they promised to make him United States senator if he would come out openly for their party." There is also a rumor current that Mr. Kelly offered his services to the Demo crats. Kugene Hagan, who is a member of the state executive committee, said: "A proposition was never made to me, but it is generally understood that Mr. Kelly would have considered a proposition to enter the campaign for the Democrats. We understood it that way, but can give you no positive information on the sub ject." SUED FOR LIBEL. The Merry Political War Involve Editor J. II. Chpm4n.

WAR IH-GEORGIA. -.... , Cleveland R"buke4 in .the House of His Friends. After Making Hundreds of Ap- poiutments in Georgia, The Democratic Convention Slaps Him in the Face. TURNS SQUARE ABOUT On All the Administration's Financial Acts. Demanding the Restoration of Silver to It3 Tlace. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 3. One of the hardest fought battles between the ad ministration and the Democrats who do not approve of its financial policy was brought to a close at 10 o'clock last night in the Democratic State convention of Georgia. A week ago tho administration people recognized the fact that President Cleve land's anti silver attitude as previously maintained could not be indorsed by the state convention, hence there was a change of faith, and the Atlanta Journal, Secretary Hoke Smith's paper, began in double-leaded editorials to prove that Mr. Cleveland was a bimetallist, and had even now begun the work of free silver coinage at the rate of $1,000,000 a month. When the platform committee went out it was with angry feelings on both Bides. It was composed in equal num bers of ' Cleveland and anti-Cleveland men as they are known here. For ten hours this committee remained iu con tinuous session, the administration men fighting for a square endorsement of Mr. Cleveland's policy and personality. Not even to the latter feature would his ad versaries agree. In the meantime the convention had proceeded with the nomination of Col. Atkinson to the governorship. In his speech he declared that he wanted no dodging platform; that he had never dodged iu politics before and did not not propose to begin now. This message he sent into the platform committee through Hon. WTarner Hill, one of his most trusted friends. This declaration it was that made the administration members yield their effort to have an indorsement of Mr. Cleveland in the platform, and ou the currency plank they agreed to this: 'We demand the immediate passage of such legislation as will restore silver to its constitutional position as a money metal, and will secure at once the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver on a parity, and give to every dollar in circulation, whether coin or pwper, the same debt-paying and purchasing pow ers." This put the convention into an up roar. The administration men were de termined to get an indorsement of Mr. Cleveland's policy. One such amend ment by Mr. Dessau Squaus, indorsing the president, was ruled out of order, and the platform a3 read was agreed to. Finally, when the body was about to ad journ, this resolution of personal indorse ment was passed: "We have an abiding faith in the courage, wisdom, honesty and patriotism of President Cleveland, and appreciate the difficulties confronting his adminis tration in its effort to remedy the evil effects of Republican misrule and ex travagance." DEMOCRATIC HARMONY Chair and Fintols Used In a leiu Con resitionl Coaventlon. Dallas, Texas, Aug. 3. A mass meet ing of Democrats of Dallas has been called for 3 o'clock this afternoon to pro test against the Dallas county delegation in the Third congressional district con vention at Corsicana voting for and caus ing the adoption of a free silver plat form at a ratio of 10 to 1 and condemn ing President Cleveland's financial pol icy. The Dallas delegations were instructed against free silver. In the Corsicana convention at noon today a gold standard delegate accused the Dallas delegation of violating instructions. Mayor Barry, of Dallas, called the delegate a liar. A riot followed and chairs were used and pistols drawn. The riot was stopped by the police. More than 1,2 0 ballots have been taken and the convention is hopelessly deadlocked. CHI CAOcTrHOYER RS. Pay as you go never goes lame. Neither the borrower nor lender keeps many friends.
