They I'rnpow to It iitI a Track of Their Own With $.".00,000 Capital. New York, Sept. 10. A proposition is being seriously c onsidered by racing men to have a new race track, on the co-operative plan. The originator of the plan. Dr. Giiean Knapp, has sug gested that fifty hcrse owners contribute $10,000 apiece aud build and conduct a track of their own. Some bolder spirits have suggested the building of three tracks instead of one, also that horsci owners could have a circuit of their own and that profits of racing would flow directly into the pock ets of the owners instead of being ab sorbed by race stockholders.

Fuaionist Democrats Beat-an. fay a Slim Llajority IHTHESHAWSSE COUNTY CCXYEHflOS Home Amusing ceacAerera paoy the (Straggle Belweeu t iie T vv o i'uctioo. The Democratic county convention which'was held at Metropolitan hall late Saturday afternoon, was entertaining in the highest degree. The Frank Thomas faction had planned to adjourr. without nominating a ticket, but they were beaten by Overmyer's personality and then they turned the tables and nomint-.ted those who favored a middle-of-the-road ticket. If David Overmyar had not attended the convention there would not now be a Democratic ticket iu Shtw.ie county. Frank Thomas was not there, and the fight was generaled by S. B. Isenhart, JD. P. Elliott tnd P. J. Caoney. The plan was to elect W. A Snyder chairman of the convention, and when the faction in favor of nominating a straight ticket did not oppose Snyder the fusionists thought they had things their own way. After the committees bed been ap pointed and retired a motion was made by Charles K. Holliday that lion. David Overmyer and Chairman Richardson, of the Democratic state central committee, be heard by thj convention. P. J. Canuey objected, but the motion to hear them carried by a big majority. Mr. Overmyer said that he was sur prised that any one Bhould object to al lowing him to speak at a Democratic con vention, lie exhorted the members of the convention to stand up like men and put a straight ticket in the field, lie then made a short Democratic speech. Chairman Richardson told the conven tion that there was no chance of the Populist ticket being elected, and a vote for it would be a vote thrown away, while on the other hand the Democratic ticket stood a good chance of beiug elected. S. B. Isenhart, chairman of the com mittee on resolution, presented the fol lowing report: Resolved. That we reaffirm our allegi ance to the Democratic platform aud prin ciples as enunciated in the national Democratic platform in 18tf2, and we hereby endorse the present national Democratic administration. Second We regard the r.epublican party of Kansas as tn arch enemy of the Democracy and we therefore pledge our selves to use all honorable means to se -cure the defeat of said party. C. K. HoJliday, Jr., at once moved the following as a substitute for the second clause: Whereas, The Democrats of Kansas in state convention assembled have honor ed the Democrats of Shawnee county by selecting as their standard bearer lion. David Overmyer of Topeka, and have associated with him on the state ticket representative Democrats of the whole state, the nominees constitutii-g the best ticket, viewed from any standpoint in the field, be it Resolved, That the Democrats of Shaw nee county in convention assembled, hereby pledge their hearty support to the Democratic state ticket from top to bottom and that they also appreciate the honor conferred in the nominatioa of lion. David Overmyer for the position of governor of Kansas and regard it as a fitting recognition of his long aud faith ful service in the cause of Democracy. The substitute was adopted without discussion. The chairman then declared nomina tions for a county ticket in order. L. A Stebbins placed W. E. Atchison's name before the convention for county attorney. The plan of the fusionists was if the opposition placed candidates in the field, to nominate men who would decline to run. In accordance with the plan D. P. Elliott placed S. B. Iseuhart in nomination. Mr. Isenhart's courage failed him, and he declined. lie sai l he had tried it once, and ha did not care to do so again. Atchison's name was then voted upon by a standing vote, and he was defeated by a vote of 15 to li2. Flushed with . success, J. T. Ward, a fusionist, at once moved to adjourn with out nominating a ticket In a second Mr. Overmyer was on his feet. "You are out of order," said the chair man. "I will not speak without unanimous consent. I only want to say a few words." 'Does any one object!"' asked the chairman. Not a whisper was heard in the room. Mr. Overmyer then turned to the crowd, his eyes flashing, and said: "As the head of the Democratic state ticket I have a right to demand of this convention that it nominate a ticket aud I now make that dam and. This is a di rect slap in my faca and I do uot pro pose to endure it. It must not be said that the Democrats cf Shawnee county laid dowD their arm-! aud surrendered. Now turn me down if you want to." A roll call on the motion wa3 de manded and when the names of the dele gates were called their courage failed them and they voted against the mjtion to adjourn. The vote stood ly to 22 against adjournment. Then Col. W. 1. Tomlinson walked across the room toward the place where S. B. Isenhart was sitting and beckoned to him. uYou go and sit down, I don't waat to see you," said .Mr. Isenhart, angrily. "I will sit down when I get ready for all of you," replied Col. Tomlinson with a snap as he walked back to his soat. The incident was amusing. Mike lleerey then arose and said: "What did you come here for'; It was understood that we were to nominate a ticket. If you are Democrats, stand up like men. If you are not 1).? Uwcr.it -i, the thing for you to do is to waik out." T. G. Shiliinglaw said: "We are Dem ocrats and we are here to beat the Re publicans. oi can't find candidates who will go out and work ia the cam paign." He thought Mr. Overmyer wouid get more votes without a county ticket iu the field. Buck Miller sai l he had been a Demo crat for ten years, ana he was stdi a Democrat, and he ws tired of the per sonal tight being made in Shawnee county. L. A Stebbins said that be did not claim to be a great friend of Mr. Over icyer, but the only tiling for Democrats ia do was to put out a Ucset. The motion to adj jurn without nomi nating a ticket was then voted down. W. E. Atchison was again nominated for county attorney. The opposing fac tion played its last card by au n.natiiig the ORAP UJ I FT OR of Ave price 5n Uw KOTITKR'S FB1ENU WAISTS t j Launderd, of Fine Percal 50c. Populist candidate E. E. Chesney. lie waa defeated by three votes. Lee Jones was then nominated for probate judge. lie said that he took it as an insult. "You may think I have no sensibilities" said he, "out I can feel just as well as the rest of you and I do not thank the man who nominated me. I am not qualified for the office and could not take it if I was." W. P. Tomlinson waa then nominated and said he took it as an honor and would accept the nomination. C. K. Holliday, jr., was nominated for clerk of the district court. Mike Heery, Mrs. L. O. Case and Geo. W. Berry were placed before the conven tion for county superintendent. Mrs. Case and Mr. Berry were not present. Mrs. Case received a majority of six votes. Lee Jones then said that Mrs. Case was a Republican and he under stood that the convention was called to nominate Democrats. "Yes, she's a woman euflragist too" said some one. The vote by which she was nominated was then reconsidered and Mike Heery withdrew. Geo. W. Berry was then nominated after the chairman informed the conven tion that he was a Populist. Mike Ueery was nominated for county cammissioner in the city district. CHARLIE ELLIOTT DIDN'T A Story About Cyrus Corolof Whicli Ap pear, to Liieik Truth. The Jackson County Tribune, pub lished at Holtou, prints the following in teresting story; Cyrus Corning, who is said to be a Populist, is editing a paper in Topeka caned the New Kra. which is bejn circulated by the g. o. p.' state committee. This scalawag and all around dead beat came to Charles S. Elliott, who was secretary of the railroad commissiou under the ltepubllcan party, and wanted Mr. lill.ottto aid him i Corn tin; ) in starting a licht against Cov. J.eweihni. Corning made this proposition in lieserabcr, before Lewellmg wan inaugu rated. Mr. Corninj; took Mr. Kluott up to .ne auditor's office aud introduced him to tho elerks and slated his mission. Mr. i. B. htttey. who was one of the clerks, listened to the proposition and replied that they cared not to enter into any such a contract. Mr. Elliott who is now chairman of the Republican county central commit tee says Cyrus Corning never came to him with a proposition of that kind and he has no recollection of introducing Corning to Whaley, he says however that if he has in any way assisted Corning in his fight on the Lewelling administration he is well satisfied with the result. WICHITA'S JOINTS. One Itx plitniit ion 1 ;tI of tlie Present War on Tliem. There is some uneasiness in Populist circles over the fight inaugurated on the joints of Wichita by County Attorney iioone. Boone was elected county attorney two years ago as a fusion candidate, but this year he was turned down in the Populist county convention, and W. B. Helm, who was chairman of the county central com mittee last year, a middle of the road Populist, was nominated and ia the pres ent Populist candidate for county attor ney. Boone is now said to be getting even by making war on the joints which have been running under the protection of Governor Lewelling's police. COL.
