Yon Had Jiett r ICetnrn, a the Police Have ( I nip s Against You. Where ia Detective Jacobs? He has been collecting evidence against the jointists for several weeks under the aus pices of the crusade committee; but Sun day he left towD. and since then the po lice are looking f or him. Jacobs was the easiest man in town to fiud, up to Sun day. He got considerable evidence of the sort the po ice pretend to be unable to c"et, about c ubs and joints. The alleged oiTance for which the po lice are hunting Jacobs, is that before he informed against the club at First and v an uuren streets, he went to the pro prietor and offered to settle for $35 cash. Jacobs told those for nhom he was working a plausible story for leaving town. There was not much more to do in Topeka, at present, he said, and he thought he hai evidence by which he could corral a train robber iu Oklahoma, so he went after him. He expected to go several days before he did, and said he wouid be buck in about hve or six days. If he doesn't come back, his dis appearance may begin to look sus picious. HE WILL RAISE GRAPES.

Joe Waters Give3 the Pas3 Taking Judiciary ANOTHER WELL DESERVED RAKIKG. Ermine Wearins Jtlaeitratea Who Take Railroad, i'aase AVhea They Are Frrqaently Called on to Oeclde Oaxra Involving It ail road Interest a. A. Loud Smelllnx Hesndal. Capt. Joe Waters has been Interviewed at Troy, Kas., by the editor of the Tri bune there. Capt Waters was asked if he was a Populist. lie said: "No, sir; I am not; I am worse than a Populist, I am a Republican whose poli tics were kittened at the wigwam in Chicago when Lincoln was nominated, who has been seven years in the army, who never held, wanted or asked for orBce and believed in everything heroic or grand that party has done. I will not vote for a single candidate on the Repub lican ticket this year. I am opposed to the railroads running and owning both eupreme court and the Republican ma chine in this state. I know one man who dispenses passes for a railroad in this state, that is the uncrowned king. He has dictated to governors, legisla tures and the judges of the supreme court, and I am only exercising my right to heip give them a black eye this year, for they deserve it. I am no flopper. 'As I do not want office, 1 can criti cise, and here is my criticism. There are now two judges on the supreme bench, Horton and Johnston, who have taken and used passes ever since they have been on the bench, and they hear and decide cases where these railroads are on one side and a lone widow, or phans and one-legged brakeman are on the other. This is a crime. it needs for plain speaking to break this custom up. The suitor who has a cae against a railroad would never try it before twelve jurymen who each had a pass in his pocket and no honest or upright judgo would require it. Nor ought any one to be haudicapped by having the entire members of the court of last resort, all armed with passes, finally determine his case. Men are human, the railroads give it under the head of courtesy to the bench, but it is not for health or philan thropy. They are intended to be sent where they will do the most good A judge who IiLlS one of these passes in his pocitet dare not under his own name justify it. It is only pardonable so long as it is not discussed and nothing is said about, it." "It is the reception of such favors as these that take our courts away from the people, that give them leaning towards corporations, and has called for a loud voiced protest that has erystalized in the Populist party. You have got to have upright men, pure men on the bench or your government is rotten to the core and valueless. A pass-taking judge can no more defend his action than Bacon could his bribes. If you will watch a judge on a train pull out his pass he does it with a debonnair demeanor that a dog possesses when ho is caught killing a sheep in the fold. Year in and year out the supreme judges take passes and give decisions in which those railroads are concerned. Two hundred cases or more are now pend ing in the supreme court, many of thorn of great importance in which the railroads are parties. The great people who care to investigate the question can go to the decisions of our supreme court and decide for themselves what passes in the hands of judges have to do with decisions. Every time the Republican party puts up a judge of this kind I propose to oppose him. 'They say all the big judges take passes. So much the more prevails an outrage on the people. No man empties ordure in a fountain to cleanse it. Judge Johnston ought not to have a Republican vote in Kansas. This is a subject you will not hear discussed for it is eternally wrong. And as a Republican I propose to make my protest ellective. Am I right? Where is the man in the state of Kansas who dare in public speech or un der his own signature take up the cudgel and say I am wrong." BLACKS AM) BLUE TEIXS. Col. Bill Eagleson Says Taylor's Trouble la Caused by 3Iulattoes. Col. Bill Eagleson, the well known leader of the local colored Democracy, Bays the fight which C. IL J. Taylor has on his hands at present in Washington, is one of the greatest significance to the colored race in America. "I saw Taylor." Eagleson says, "in Indianapolis last month, and he said to me then, I am going to have a devil of a fight, when I get back to Washington.' Then he told me all about the trouble he was in, which has since become public The row is over the employes in the of fice. He found a lot of young fellows in there who wore good clothes, bought $150 bicycles and went to the races. He told them they could go to the races all the time, for he wanted men under him who wanted to work and needed the money. But the row didn't really commence until Taylor fired a colored woman who was a particular pet of Editor Chase of the Negro paper the Call, Chase opened up on him and brought all the charges which have since come to the notice of President Cleveland. "Taylor is the friend of the black col ored man, and not the tool of the light onas or the rich ones. As a general thin? the colored man when he gets wealcu or position.disdains the black col ored man and prefers to hobnob among those a shade or two lighter. This is tha reason he ia at war with the so-called in fluential colored citizens of Washington. "One place where Taylor show ed this feeling strongly was in the public schools. It devolved on him to piacticaUy name the colored teachers in the Washington schools. He found a lot of frizzly, pow dered mulatto girls teaching there, not because they knew anything, but be cause they were the 'friend' of some con gressman. Taylor fired all these and put in women of the same color as their pupils, and who were capable of teach ing. "The fight has narrowed down be tween the light negro and the dark negro. All the darkies are with Taylor. The light ones have no use for the masses of our race until they get into trouble; then they say, 'nurse me.' If a man with colored blood in his veins don't like hts race, I say all right, get white if yon can, but after you're denied your race, don't coxae around asking any favors of TO SHUT MART OUT. Mrs. Lease Won't He Allowed to ho Cam paign Work. It ia today announced that Mrs. Mary E. Lease is not to be allowed to go into the state campaign for the Populists. In a letter cancelling her last Sunday's date at Prohibition Park, New York, written from the state insane asylum, ! -Mrs. Lease said, "I am physically wrecked for this season." The real reason she will not epeak in the Kansas campaign is however, be cause she is regarded as bad campaign, material. Her utterances against the administration and her recent action in defending Dr. McCasey, who is not de fended by the beat element of the Popu list party, have combined to make Mrs. Lease objectionable to almost every ele ment in the People's party. THE BANKER 3sOT A POPULIST. Agrellus Sends His Money to the Repub lican Committee. Secy. Bristow of the Republican State Central committee yesterday afternoon received a letter from A. E. Agrelius the Lind3borg, McPherson county banker who was & few weeks ago announced as having gone over to the Populist party on account of its attitude on the silver question. In his letter Mr. Agrelius says he always has been and still is a Republican and he is satisfied the Republican can didates will if elected fully represent hia ideas on the silver question. With the letter he enclosed a contribu tion to the state campaign fund. PRICES FOR ELOPPEICS. The "Flop" Kichange Now Posts the Po litical O notations.

A morning pa per says: The pt anut trust, or Virginia Peanut association, as it is called, ii mak ing a btrong effort to driv e the few out siders out of the business and its latest move has been to obtain the increase in freight rates from Norfolk to New York on all lots less than u crload, which is said to have proved an injury to the out siders. The peanut association was funned a year ago of most of the cleaners of Vir ginia. The firms entering into it kept their former names, but all orders have to Lej sent to the association which distributes them among the different cleaning firms according to their slocks and business. Three firm of peanut cleaners refused to go iuto the trust. The outsiders have been doing t largo business with New York, for thw reason that they have supplied thousands in large or small lots cheaper than the at') cialion has furnished thein. iu t'uno the outsiders cut so deeply into the trado of this city that its officers began to caht about for some means to regain their control, and it ia expected that it is through their influence that the Old Dominion steamship company recently advanced its freight rates on all lots of peanuts less than a car load from 18 cents to 28 cents.
