PAID A f I J 11E SEES THE SHOPMEN Whaley Talks to Santa FeMen For the First Tima SOCE THEY TUKSED 03 THE HOSE. He TeIlAIIesed'-lDil(leFeti''W'hich Ite Mays He Learned Before lie JLeft the Republicans. The Populist county campaigners are making a strong play for votes in the Santa Fe shops precinct. They held' a meeting over in that end of town last night and played their trump card, E. B. Whaley. It was Mr. Whaley'a first ap pearauce before an audience of shopmen since they turned the hose on him. The Republicans would as soon have used vinegar to catch flies as Mr. Whaley to make votes in the Santa Fe precinct; but the Populist are sort of vice versa anyhow and go on the "last shall be tirot" and "a lutle one shall head them" principles, and Mr. Whaley was right in it. The meeting was held at the house of Levi Hammond at 1103 East Sixth street. T'aere were some voiers present who ap peared anxious to hear the leading is sues of the day discussed, but they were outnumbered by the bad boy3 smoking cigarettes, and other children. 1L 11. Brown of the Ottawa Journal, who, if he went to as many prayer meet ings as he does Pop meetings, would be a regular i. L. Moody, presided. Mr. Whaley was the principal speaker, and after talking about things in general was not long in getting onto the subject of profound secrets of Republican corrup tion, most of which, he sai i, he was told by Senator Sterne. Ho said, in part: "i was for Kd Hocn for governor. I believed tuat wttli a new ou.tit of candi dates and by weed.ug out the Bill Hig gmes the party might get along. But when they put Cy Lclaud at the nead of the central commitieo I gave up all hope. 1 havo nothing personal against Jlr. Eelaud; it is all political. Alter the election oi iy2, wheu votes were needed badly, he was asked what Doniphan county would do. He replied: 'Domphan will do her share towards making up the discrepancy.' At tho same electioa when the returns indicated that the Re publican ticket was about B.UOO short. I was asKed uy Jim Simpson wtiat Shaw nee would 'do.' Bill Higgius stood be side me and shook his head. 1 replied that the returns of Shawnee could not be ciiuuged. "1 Know that the Santa Fe railway fur nished money in lbtci to carry the legis lature fur the Republicans in order to prevent any anti-railroad legislation. I happen to Know that $l.iW0 of Santa Fe money was ued in Senator Ed Berry's district alone. George R. Peck was be hiud the Republican slate ceutral com muiee all the time, and directed the cam paign, and poor Jim Bimpsou, the wheel noise of the party, had uoiniug to say about it. "mure was a Republican in the house named Gree-iiee wno runs a wholesale grocery house in Hutchin son, lie Was elected on the issue that lie should get decent freight rates for Wichita and Hutcuiuson. But Peck patied him on his back aai got a lot more Republicans to pat him on the back and made him itnuK he would get the nomination for congress in the Seveuth district if he would let his bill drop, so he dropped it. T'ne Populists tried to get a maximum freight, bill through the house, like the one iu Iowa, wuich Justice Brewer, a railroad judge, has deeded since was unconstitutional." Changing the subject Mr. Whaley con tinued, "1 Know one note-shaver iu town who told the tax-assessor his property was worth $800, who can draw a cneck for $30,000 that will be cashed at any bank. 1 know another money-shark in 'lopeka who returned hia wealth at sfoOO, who shortly after paid $14,000 cash tor a piece of property, which he took out of his private safe and had $ 20,OOJ more there. "A great deal has been said lately about me alleged scandals at the various state charitable institutions. There are some bad men amoug them, it would be moie surprising if there not, but I want to say to you that they are run as well as a new Republican administration could hope to run them. So far as the charges of corruption are concerned they have fallen very flat indeed. "Sam Gardenhire, the clerk of your district court, is feathering his nest juet as his predecessor Bill Sterne did. 1 liey have both made from $ 3,000 to $ 10,000 a year. Those two men put up the seueuie by whicu the Shawnee county circuit court is in existence, which costs the state $10,. 0J a year. They both had caes pending in which they had fees, and they got the circuit court so they could be settled and get their money more speedily. Isow Gardenhire is run ning for another office before his term is up. What can you expect of such a Frank Stevens, candidate for county commissioner, and E. E Chesney, also made speeches. H. II. Brown in closing the meeting said the Populists intended to hold meetings at the same place frequently duriug the campaign. He recommended that every one present should read Senator Kelly's letter, pub lished in the Journal, and laid special stress on the fact that the Republican state ticket was composed of two bank ers, one teacher and five lawyers, while the Populists have only two lawyers and no bankers on their ticket. All of the Republican cand. dates for congress are lawyers, but only one of the Populist aspirants in this direction is a lawyer. THE POLICE 1I0MANCE. A. Pleasant Horns I:stnrbd Again A. Ttilef, a tojtg. auil koui fgddltri. Officer Capron had an exciting time yesterday aftercooa. John Mayweather, colored, had taken unlawful possession of a set of harness that belonged to T. E Bowman. Mr. Capron caught May weatuer and was bringing him to the station. When in front of Simpson's commission house ou the avenue May weatuer broke away.dropped the harness which he had iu the sack and uiaJa a bold dash for liberty. His bold dash didn't carry him more than three or four blocks before Capron caught him and took him along with a firmer grip than before. Ha appeared ia court this morning and pleaded not guilty. As the case was not quite ready for trial it was tostooned till Monday morning. Omenta White was in court this morn ine. Oinenia hails from H amego, and is a vtry innocent you;h. lie is either very, very tuiuuiu or decidedly gullible. He had hardly struck town yesterday when he began to feel the need of a cig arette to quiet his nerves. He began asking for one, and one magnanimous friend whose name he has forgotten gave him a five dollar bill to buy a box of the dude destroyers. When he pre sented the bill "to de lady fer de cigger rets" he was pained and surprised to dis cover that it was nothing but a three dol lar shoe bill an advertisement. The valiant police immediately arrested Ome nia for trying to pass counterfeit money. Omenia made the matter clear to the judge this morning, however, and was discharged. The case of Mrs. Kiernan was next called. Mrs. Kiernan lives on east Fourth street, and had been rudely ac costed the other night by divers parties in a hack. The hackmen whom she had named in the case heard that a warrant was out for them and felt so innocent about it that they came right down and give themselves up to the police. Ed Travis says he wasn't there because he was sick. Frank Hen dricks was also a willing prisoner. Both Mrs. Kiernan and her cousin were in court. But they didn't identify the men on the bench, bo the men were dis charged. The police are now doing all in their power to bring to justice the guilty persons. The children will be very indignant to learn that Mr. Sc.jtt, the ice cream man, has been arrested for peddling the frozen bliss without having asked the city clerk about it. His case has been continued till Tuesday. O. F. Stewart is also in trouble for monkeying with the city license law, and his case has been held over till Monday. Mr. Hungate then slammed the docket book together and went home. P. E. COOK CORRESPONDS. He Has a X-engtliy Currfapoodinoi Wltli Judge Caldwell A b u l Wag-e. The day after the lockout at the Santa Fe shops on July 2nd at a mass meeting of the A R. U. in this city, a committee of the laid off men was appointed head ed by P. E. Cook, to call on Treasurer Wilder, of the road, and find out when the employes would receive the two month's pay then due them. Mr. Wilder at that time d.d not kuow wheu they would be paid and could not make any promises. The committee was instruct ed to lay the matter before Judge Cald well, which they did. In due tune they received the following answer, dated at Wequetonsing, Mich., July 17th: !. E. Cook. Chairman, Topeka. Kas.: "Dear Sir Your letter in relation to payment of wages due the men has been referred to the receivers, with positive instructions to pay as soon as they can raise the money. You ought to be paid, but recent events have put it out of the power of the receivers to pay anything from the earnings and they will be com pelled to borrow money for the purpose of paying wages. Yours truly, "Henry C. Caldwell." Soon after the receipt of this letter Mr. Cook aga.n wrote to Jude Caldwell un der date of the 23d. His letter was as follows: "Dear Sir Your letter in answer to our communication in regard to wages of the Santa Fe employes received, and in reply would like to say: It was no fault of ours that the company did not havo the money with which to pay wages. We are locked out without any notice as to the cause and aga.nst our wishes, and wheu our committee called on Treasurer Wilder he gave us no satisfaction as to whm we would get it, and did not ap pear to be coucerned as to whether we ever got paid or not. "Mr. Wilder also stated to us that it was costing the company $40,01)0 par day to carry ou the fight against the strikers. Now it looks to me lite asking for bread and being given a stone. "Since writing the communication re ferred to in this letter I have been dis charged and told that I would never again be employed by the company so long as it was in the hands of the re ceivers. No reason was assigned for my dismissal. In fact the general foreman in the department in which I was em plo3red told me that they (the olli cials) asked him to bring charges against me. The general fore man says that there was not a thing that he could say detrimental to me as a me chanic or a man, but inasmuch as you have referred my letter to the receivers, therefore, 1 have reason to believe thac there lies the cause of my dismissal I have a wife and three children depend ent on me for supporL I am located here so that I cannot get away without a great sacrifice to my property and with no prospects of getting anything to do in the city, and because I was selected as chairman of the committee to wait on Mr. Wilder, the treasurer, and to com municate with j-our honor 1 have been discharged. Is there any justice in this when the company was owing me over two months waes? "I would like to appear before your honor in person and make a statement of my case and I ask you to request the re ceivers to furnish me with transportation for that purpose. "I hope you will pardon me for annoy ing you in this matter. Though it may be trifling to you, let me assure you it is very important to me. "I have the honor to be your obedient servant, P. E Cook." The reply to this letter has just been received, and is as follows: 'Dear Sir Your request to furnish you transportation to euable you to ap pear before me to make a statement of your grievance cannot be complied with for two reasons: (1) I am just now out of my circuit. (2) If I was in my circuit I could not hear and decide your case upou your own ex parte statement. The receivers are entitled to be heard. No court should attempt to decide a dispute without hearing both sides. "If you think you have a grievance en titling you to a judicial investigation you can tile your petition with Judge J. B. Johnson, master in chancery at Topeka, and he will hear the evidence on both sides and decide the matter. -As to the payment of wage3 due you, T have instructed the receivers to borrow money to pay all pst due wages. Yours truly, Henry C. Caldwell." Before this letter was written Mr. Cook had received his pay.

TO FIGHT THE TAX. Ice Cream, Milk and Other Wagons to Pay Ten Dollars. THE CITY TAX DEPARTMENT Deilrei to Collect That Amount Cot the Owner Will Take Their Cue t the Courts. The legality of the city council's last license ordinance is a question that will soon be submitted to the district court. The enemies of the ordinance who are chiefly those affected by its provision, contend that it is void; and their lawyer who are preparing to contest it are able to prove its illegality at least to their own satisfaction. The license collector, who is Charles Vanderpool, has been trying to collect f 10 from each ice wagon, milk wagon, ice cream wagon and oil wagon in the city, under section 3 of the ordinance which reads: "Peddlers of articles not otherwise mentioned in this ordinance, $1 per week, $3 per month or If 10 per year; provided, nothing herein shall re quire the payment of a license tax by parties peddling grains, fruits, vegeta bles or meals of their own production." For refusing to comply with this sec tion of the ordiuauce Vanderpool has had Agent Stewart of the Standard Oil company arrested in the police court, and has been trying to collect the $10 for each wagon from Baughman, Scott Bros, and other ice cream dealers, as well as the milk men and ice men. Ex-City Attorney W. A. 8. Bird con tends that the whole ordinance is illegal; that not only section 3, but the clauses relating to slot machines and insurance agents are illegal. He says: "Tue principal fault with the ordinance on which its opponents can base their claim of illegality is that the citycouucil cauuot delegate its authority. It leaves it discretionary .with License Collector Vanderpool who is a peddler and who isn't. It is the aim of the laws against peddlers to collect a license from people who carry packs and who pay no other tax. But the Standard Oil company and the icecream men and ice men all pay taxes, and it is a question whether or not they can be taxed twice for the same prop erly. In a case from the Iowa Supreme court, that of the city of State enter against Bernstein, it was decided that they could not. "I claim that the milk men and oil men are not peddlers, Vanderpool to the contrary notwithstanding. They do not peddle but have their regular customers and deliver their goods just as a grocery wagon does. We claim also that the ice dealers and ice cream men peddle arti cles of their own production, and it is unjust and class legislation to say that peddlers of fruit and meat of their own production shall not be licensed, while peddlers of ice cream of their own pro duction shall pay a license. "Another phase of the the matter is who is the peddler? Is Baughman the peddler or the drivers of his e.ght or ten wagons? If Baughman is the peddler he is willing to pay the $10, but here is another case of delegated power. Van derpool says he must pay $10 for each wagon, and the same with each ice wagon, milk wagon and o:l wagon. Baughman is willing to pay $10, but ob jects to paying fSj or $1U0. "The ordinance proposes to tax each insurance company operating in Topeka, except the Kansas Aiutual Life and the Shawnee Fire. The spirit of the ordi nance is very nice to protect home indus tries, but I claim it is illegal to tax one company and not another. 1 agree with Judge Ensmiugerand I think every law yer in town does, when he says the clause relating to slot machines is invalid. For these reasons and others we propose to prove in the district court that the pres ent license ordinance is not only invalid in parts, but bo from top to bottom." Mr. Bird has been engaged by both Baughman and Stewart'to test the validi ty of the ordinance, and J. 11. Collier is taking charge of the interests of Srott Brothers. It is likely that all the cases will be united in one big test case that will settle the matter. Hard Coal Cheap.
