Carl Browu's IJecorativi' Art Makei Ohio People ta :id Aghast. Massillon, Sept. 20. Grand Com mander Carl Browne of the Commonweal of' Christ, received his friends in Mr. Coxey's amp itheater this morning in bare feet, arrayed in troupers and undershirt and pointed with prida to the evidences of his skill in perfuming miracles on circus wagons. Thus far four wagons have teen reincarnated with tho twin souls of Coxey and Browne, as the de scription below will testify. The ad vance wagon, finished first, in order that it may start out today, boare such in scriptions as "Coxey Advance Wagon," "Keep Of" the Gras-i,'' "Liberty Was Crushed to Death May 1, 18 4," "Inter est on Bonds Broujut Us Panics and Poverty; Coxey's Noa-interJst-Bearing Bonds- Will Give Us Peace aud Prosperity." On one sido a lion with blood drippiug from its mouth rep resents the English national banking sys tem, and the blood appears to be interest ou bonds being spilled on the American people, who seem to be standing ou their heads. On the reverse side a white horse labeled Coxey is being ridden by a red headed circus girl who is called the com monweal, while a gentiernan named Tay lor astride of a mule looks up and says: "Mela Gott! dot Coxey was a runner." Off in parenthesis somebody else say: "Wall street left for once.' The baud wagon has on its rear end a picture of the great Coxey peering through prison bars, and above the picture is the word 'Unity." On either side are representa tions of a storm-tossed ship and a moun tain' house, both supposed to be "mort gaged to Wall street." The literature wagon bears a quotation from Victor Hugo, reading: "'lhe para dise of the rich is made out of the hells of the poor." Walter Scott is drawn upon for this: "Hereditary bondsmen, know ye not, who would be free themselves must strike the blow?" to which Coxey adds: 'Use the bailot instead of the blow." A picture on one sida seems to suggest that "even the horses are parading for Coxey's good-road-bill." and on the other a reformed leopard named "interest on bonds" is crouching in an African jungle, where he is thought to be lying in wait for taxpayers. The platform wagon, on which the elect will sr. eak, is covered by portraits of Washington, Jeiferson, Lincoln aud Grant, and pictures of wiiat Mr. Browne calla "three great epochs in American history,"' namely, the revolution in 1776, the war of the rebellion, and Coxey's march on the capital. In tho latter pic ture Mr. Browne, Coxey and Miaa Mamie Coxey loom up conspicuously, and the dome of the capitol is seea in the dis tance. FREE THINKERS FINISH. They Close Their Session Toilay. Artz Will ISe One of the Lecturers. The Kansas Free Thinkers closed their session at Lincoln post hall this morning. There were three meetings at the hall Saturday, aud on Sunday morning at the City park J hn E. Hems burg spose to a large audience on "Contradictious of tho Bible." In the afternoon Mrs. Lois Wais brookor spoke at the park her subject being "Conditions Required for Perfect Motherhood." "Until all conditions per taining to motherhood are studiously correct, we can have no perfect human race," she said. "The sex conditions as they now exist are responsible for the filling of our jails and asylums." There were nearly 500 people present. Prof. W. S. Bell also talked on "Liberty and Morality." The evening meeting was held at the hall and a good many people could not gain admittance. John Radford spoke on -'The New Capitalization." The speech was a criticism of the present linancial conditions and leaned to the sub-treasury idea. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, Mrs. Etta Semp'e of Ottawa; secretary, Moses Har mony treasurer, Marie Greene. The fol lowing lecturers were appointed: Alexan der ii jse of Lawrece. James Pontius of Washington and II. II. Artz of Topeka. I he next meeting of the association w ill bo held in Ottawa in August.

Mayor Harrison has decided to veto the resolution passed at the last meeting of the council requesting him to remove the sidewalk and sewer inspector, Rich ard llargraves, and appoint a good Re publican in his place. Ho said in refer ence to tha matter and the reason his nams was not presented to tho council for confirmation : "I bold that temporary appointments which are intended to run for only a short time cannot be submitted to the council for continuation because the state statute provides that when ap pointed and confirmed by the council they must for two years. I also think that the council room is a place to trans act public business for the whole city and not a place to air political grievances or try and make political capital." PEKItY, OK., FLOODED.

Peft'ei A General Grab Came BY REPRESENTATIVES. Each Trying- to Get What He Could. The Senator Tells Why He Voted for Protection ON SALT AND WOOL Humiliating Surrender to the Suirar Trust. Senator and Mrs. Wm. A. Peffer ar rived in Topeka at 1 o'clock today on a liock Islaud train. "I am delighted to get home," said the senator to a Journal reporter. "I think Topeka is the handsomest place iu the country and I have never thought it looked so pretty as now. I feel prouder of my little home because it is home, than I ever have been before." "Do you consider the work of the last congress satisfactory'."" asked the Jouu sal man. "Do I?" and the senator looked a trifle ruliled. "I consider the Fifty-third con gress the most stupendous failure in the history of the nation. Not a single act of public benefit was passed." "What is vour opinion of the new tariff bill?" "I don't like to talk about it. The proceedings were so scandalous that I do not enjoy talking about it. I speak of the general discussion and the complete surrender of the Democrats to a handful of men. There were thirty eight northern and southern Democrats iu favor of what has always been advo cated by the Democratic party, but there were six eastern men, who call them selves Damocrats, but who are really Re publicans, controlled that majority in tho senate. "At no time could they get a majority to support the proposed measure without a caucus, so they held the caucus and gave instructions to have a bill prepared which would be satisfactory. "Then the sugar trust tame .'in with a demand that the sugar schedule be changed, and the six men stood ont and said we will have this bill or nothing, and then came the surrender. How humiliating to see a large body of men lay down their arms before a half dozen." "Why did you vote to put a duty on galfr" asked tiie reporter. "1 voted for a duty on both salt and wool, though I am really in favor of both free salt and free wool. I discovered that the tariff legislation meant legisla tion in favor of class interests, and tho revenue feature was completely lost sight of. I siiowed the senate that all our Kansas salt makers wanted was to retain their territory that is that some duty be put upon salt so that the area they supply might not be encroach ed upon by foreign salt. "1 favored a duty on wool because the bill proposed putting a duty on woolen, troods, and I wanted the Kansas farmers who raise the wool, to be treated as well as the manufacturers. "This whole thing was a grab game and I simply did my best to see that Kausas peoplo were treated as well as other classes." The reporter informed Senator Peffer of the withdrawal of Congressman Hudson in the Third district. "I know absolutely nothing about that," said the senator, "but I un ler stood he wm to be taken oil for political reasons. If it is true that he has de clined to be a candidate for bnsiues3 reasons I am not surprised. Anyone who expects to make money out of the posi tion will be disappointed." The senator is 63 years old today but he bears his age well and looks better and younger than when he last left Topeka. Knglnrers' 3fw Order. Dknvek, Sept. 10. Two hundred dele gates to the second national convention of the Traveling Engineers association, arrived in Denver today from the oast. The convention will open in this city to morrow. The association is a new non secret organization, whose object is to improve the locomotive engineer service of American railroads. The Public felionld lie l.rncrom. No such races have been held for years anywhere as those we are to have in Topeka this year, without the public be j ing called upon to contribute largely to ! defray the expense. The managers of our races only aU each person to buy a ticket. It is hardly possible to aak for less. The Iie V, anted to Interfere. London, Sept. 10. A special dispatch received here today from Rome, says that the pope is said to have expressed a wish to arrange the tioubles between China and Japan, but was prevented by France, who feared that ihe intervention of the church would undo the work France was carrying on in the east. lioromotive Firemen.

San Francisco, Sept. 10. The Exami ner says: Mrs. Stanford has paid olf the last 'of the debts due from the Stanford estate and has thia early got its great properties in almost perfect order. She is now anxious for a distribution of the estate, so that she may secure personal control of the millions of which she ia now executrix. Aa soon as the distribution is ordered, she will begin operations in a new held. Then, under her personal supervision, the erection of half a million dollars worth of new buildings and the early expansion of th3 university to three time3 itj present magnitude, will be begun. The three great estates, the Palo Alto, Gridley and Vina ranches, 8,000, 17,0lKJ and CJ.000 acres, respectively, on which. Senator Stanford lavished expense and experiments, have been put on a strictly business basis. y The brandy at Vina, of which Senator Stanford never sold a gallon, is still going to Europe and 4 elsewhere iu immense quantities. The biggest claim against the estate is the $15,000,000 claim which Attorney General Olney has presented ou behalf of the government to Mrs. Stanford, as executrix. This suit i3 an annoyance to Mrs. Stan ford, because so long aa it is unsettled it will prevent her from spending a doilar of the estate in behalf of the university. The plau3 for the early enlargement of the insvitution includes a large amount of now apparatus, the early purchase of 50, 000 books, the employment of a great many new professors and instructors and the opening of new departments. The plaus for the future, m settled up on, include a conservatory of music that shall be equal to anything iu America, the equipment of a great art school de partment of professional instruction, etc. As soon as distribution is effected, the Stanford university will at once have ad ded . to its available income the income of $17,000,000. It will from that time have practically the in come of the entire Stanford fortume, which in time3 of ordinary prosperity would exceed, it is stated, on good au thority, $1,500,000 a year. Its income will be three times that of Harvard, the richest of American universities, aud greater than that of the University of Berlin. 31 ASS ACRED.

The Populist Nominee in the Third District, Eefuses to Run for Congress This Time. HE FORESEES DEFEAT Because the Democrats Will Not Endorse Him. But Will Vote For Their Nom inee, Sanp. Chairman Breideuthal of the Populist state central committee this morning re ceived definite information of the with drawal from the congressional race in the Third district of Jeff Hudson, the present congressman. Hudson was nominated as a fusion candidate by the Populists two years ago to succeed Ben Clover, and was elected by a majority of 2,"00 over Ex Governor Humphrey. This year the Populists renominated Hudson, but the Democrats refused to endorse him and have nominated W. F. Sapp of Galena. Hudson is a shrewd enough politician to see that ho could not be re-elected without tho Democratic endorsement and refuses to run. The Populist convention which renom inated Hudson was held at Cherryvale, June 27, but Hudson had up to Saturday neither accepted aor rejected the nomi nation. The congressional committee met at Cherryvale Saturday and Hudson made a speech, in which ho declined to be a candidate for re-election. Chairman Breidenthal says Hudson ia not ambitious, politically, and has for some time been thinking of retiring to private life again, as his business inter ests demand his persona! attention. The Populist congressional committee has called another convention to be held at Cherryvale, September 27, when another candidate will be nominated. Chairman Breidenthal says he is confi dent his party wiil elect the congress man in the Third district but who the nominee will be no one can tell. State Senator Reiley of Parsons, ex Speaker Dunsmore and El Ridgely of Parsons have all been mentioned in connection with tho nomination. Senator S. S. Kirkpatrick, tho Repub lican candidate is making a vigorous canvass of the district. WILL HE PROSECUTED.
