REMARKABLE GROWTH During" tho Past Twelve Months an Uu jaralleled Season OfEusi ues i Depression, the State Journal Forces Ahead OYER FIFTY PER CENT, Meeting and Passing the Topeka Daily Capital. How the Great Increase Was Made A Few Secrets. :EAR TEN THOUSAND. This IV.p.'r Shows a Daily Average of ,0G, Covering the Three Dull Sum ner Months. This paper devotes very little of It3 space to boast. ng of ita great growth and circulation, but feels sure that its readera appreciate sor lething ia that line occa sionally, henca si few remarks today. During the twelve months ending with the ls-t of September the Topkka Daily Statk Journal has made a growth which is almost incredible without the figures, which are given below, to provo it. That ia to say, the circulation of this paper has increased over fifty per cent in one year, and a thousand per ceut ia the nine years during which it has been under its pressat management. With the exception of the past twelve months the growth has been gradual. Ho great was tie prejudice against the State Journal when its present pro prietor bought the property at receiver's sale in 18S5, that it required several years to inako any considerable head way. The following table gives some perti neut azures concerning the circulation of the Daily State Journal: I ei the year loss ttie c.rcuiation was SOO January 1. 1-j )i 3.1'5 l.i iy avrnuf ft r year l?i -i,;s-4i ImiiV avef.i.rf ter year S.'Jt: l'atly averax' fc-r year ltA i,-'13 luti.y average far chre month 4 ending At.f.lt 81. .. 5,732 Uuily arfrajc for three luuulhs t u il - I1114 August 21, 18U4 S.MOU It ia generally conceded that moat newspapers have lost heavily in circula tion during the last year owing to the hard times. This paper owes its progress under the adverse circumstances to several reasons and condition, namely: In the first place the STATE JOSSNAL is a 1TEWS paper, nit ai cran. Its first ambi tion is to priat the news and print it first All othor considerations, including the furtherance of aay political party's interests, are secondary. It tries to be truthful, fair and enterprising. It punc tures hypocr'y and pretended reform w herever it tees it. The remarkable reason for the growth, however, lies in the fact that more labor has teen expended, more money paid out, more pr.nters employed, more re porters at work, more local and tele graph news p atlished than during any Similar period in the paper's history. Tope peopls never got so much news f or 30 cents a week as they are getting now in the Stitk Journal. The daily lecal circulation of this paper has foryears greatly exceeded that of any oth er Topeka dally, being double that of its only riv al, tho morning paper. The State Jocrnal'8 t:tal circulation now leads them alL The State Journal has never made any great claims as to its outside circulation over the state, but during the past twelve months while a tig growth hts been made in the city, it has made greit strides on the outside. Within a radias of fifty miles of Topeka Its outside circulation exceeds that of auy daily prated at Topeka. The Topeka Capital frequently pub lishes a statement that it pays more post age than the State Jouknal and more ia fact than all the other Topeka dailies combined. This was doubtless true, but as no postage is paid on any papers cir culated in lopefca, or Shawnee county, the Capital's own boast shows its meager local circulation when the State Jour nal's total da.ly circulation exceeds that cf th3 Capital.

During the recent strike of the A. R U., in which the regular army took a prominent part, a corps from Utah was stationed at Keuo for the alleged pur pose of protecting the railroad compa nies' property. Some move of the troops, was to be made and Adjutant Bowlen, who was ia charge of the signal corps of the detachment was obliged to telegraph for instructions. lie marched his corps up to the telegraph otlice and demanded that Shearer and his operators vacate the othce while he, with the operators con nected with his command, at;ked for and I received tiie necessary instructions over j the wires from headquarters. enearer reiuseu to leave the oriice. He considered that h and his men were perfectly able to conduct the business of the office, and the rules of the company were that none but regular employes of the office should have access to the wires. The adjuant ia his military way could not quite understand the position taken by the telegraph manager, yet he was obliged to file his message in the regu lar way. lie complained to his superiors of the refusal of Shearer to let him use the wires, and in the complaint he al leged that Shearer and his operators were in sympathy with the strikers and ac quainted them with ull of the telegraph ic messages concerning the movement of the troops. This complaint was sent to the war department at Washington and from there it was sent to Gen. Rugrer for investigation. Gen. Huger in turn sent a copy of the complaint to Frank Jaynes Pacilic coast superintendent of the Western Union Telejrraph company,who in turn discharged the Keno employes.

It May not Fight to Protect Property if X"ay Isn't Forthcoming. Chicago, Sept. 11. Mutiny is brew ing in the ranks of Battery D. A move ment is on foot among the men to refuse to put on their uniforms or to drill again until they have received what the state of Illinois owes them for their services at the front during the recent strike dis turbances. Some of them openly declare that in case the governor should lind it neces sary to calT them out again they would refuse to respond on the ground that the state had failed to 'fulfill its part of the contract, thus releasing them from ful filling theirs. It was with great difficulty that tho battery was kept from breaking away and refusing to obey orders at the regu lar weekly driil Saturday night. The prevailing discontent was openly manifested in the presence of tha offi cers, and if -anything had happened to stir the men up a mutiny could not have been averted. After the drill was over a committee from the company called on Captain Alfred liussell in his office and a hot dis cussion of the situation followed, lie said at once that it was impossible for him to do auythiug, and ho was as anx ious to get his salary as the men were to get theirs. A member of the com mittee then asked why the bnt tiry in the association . did not Liaise an effort to pay at least part of the money to relieve the distress of some of the members of the command, and have lost their positions or are for some other reason in hard circumstances. The cap tain replied that the association was spending all the money it could get in paying the regular running expenses of the armory, and the committee went away without having received a grain of comfort. Since that time the spirit of discontent has grown rwpidly, and it it likely to bear fruit next Saturday uight in an open refusal to drill. The men have not yet decided as to what plan they will fellow, but it is generally understood among them that a light of some kind will be made. When the men marched in after the close of the strike they expected to draw their pay, about 61) to each man, with out any delay, aud it was the keenest disappointment to them when they learned that the money might not be forthcocdng for months. Discontent was kept in check by the hope that some body of wealthy men would take hold of the matter and see that they got their pay. Last week they lost hope of receiving any help from this sonrco and talk of mutiny, has since been freely indulgwd in. The state government, however, has done everything possible to secure the payment of the men. The militia appro priation being exhausted no funds will be available before the next session of the legislature next w'nter, but Govern or Altgeld has offered personally to guar antee the payment of all such sums ad vanced by bankers and ethers pending the meeting of the legislature, both the principal aud interest.

They Were Thrown at a Pro hibition Speaker On Kansas Avenue By Hoodlums Last Xight. DISGRACEFUL AFFAIR. The Enemies of the Prohib itory Law Permitted to Assault a Peaceful Speaker. POLICEMAN PRESENT. He Made Xo Attempt to Arrest the Perpetrators. Temperance sentiment is not what it ought to be in Topeka when a Prohibition speaker is pelted with eggs on Kansas avenue, and yet this is what occurred last night, A. Q. Wilson, who has for some time been making temperance speeches on the street nightly, was pelted with eggs by liquor sympathizers at the corner of Fifth street and Kansas avenue last night about half past eight o'clock. Mr. Wilson, who was assisted by an elderly man who sings, was just con cluding hia meeting and was taking dowu his gasoline lamp, when some one back in the crowd threw an egg, which missed the mark and smashed on a by stander's shirt front. Another egg fol lowed, which was aimed straight, aud it struck Mr. Wilson squarely on top of the head; a third egg was thrown, which hit the lamp Mr. Wilson was taking down. Mr. Wilson did not quail before the egg throwers, as he says he got used to that kind of treatment in California sev eral years ago, and he anuounced thai, he would hold another meeting Weduesday evening, at tho corner ol Seventh and Kansas avenue. W ilson had been talking very plainly. In the early part of his speech, he ac cused the police department of being corrupted by the enemies of temperance, and then said the county authorities were no better. When he uttered this sentiment there was a slight commotion in tiie crowd, but no one said anything, although there were about 150 people present When Wilson concluded hia speech he got do-'n from his platform and hia as sistant commenced to sing:. The crowd did not want to hear any singing, and the '"Sankey" of the combi nation was jeered and told to quit, while there were continued calls for "Shorty," as Mr. Wilson is called by hia street auditors. Wiison concluded it was time to quit, aud got up to put out his light when the egg's were thrown. The crowd was ap parently in sympathy with the man who threw the eggs and cheered loudly. A policeman stood on the sidewalk and witnessed the entire disgraceful per formance, and made no attempt to arrest the perpetrators of the deed. Policeman Jones is in charge of the beat 011 Fifth street from Kansas avenue to the Santa Fe depot, and Policeman Russell has the beat on Kansas avenue between Fourth and Sixth streets. It must have been one of the two. Police man Jones says he was on the other end of the beat and came running up Fifth street, but when he arrived the egg thrower could not bo apprehended, and the affair was all over. Wilson is not a brilliant talker, but he has a way of putting facts which is not pleasing to the enemies of temperance and prohibition, aud this is no doubt the reason Topeka's record was broken, and for the first time in her history a temper ance speaker was egged. Some of Mr. Wilson's friends say he is indiscreet, which may be so, but as long as ho himself does not disturb the peace, he should be given protection and the hoodlums should not bo allowed to as sail him. SAM JONES' HOT WORDS. Ridicules the Idea That Saloon Keepers Can be Slandered. Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 11. Rev. Sam Jones was seen on a Louisville & Xash ville train and had this to say about the liquor dealers of St. Louis: "After I left St. Louia I was informed by the press of the action on the part of the liquor dealers, which was unsuc cessful. I laughed at the affair, and con sidered it a very fine joke. The idea of a lot of red-nosed dispensers of fire water accusing me of slandering them! How can they be sland ered? I might publicly call them all of the hard names in my vocabulary and then fall short of the roasting that they deserve. Slander them'r It makes me laugh. A lot of unprincipled home-destroyers who day after day, by their ne farious trade, wreck tho lives of our j'oung men and cause tears of shame to course down the cheeks of mothers, fathers and sisters. You might as well try to perfume a skunk by pouring Ger man cologne on him aa to try and slander a liquor dealer. You can't do it. "Talk about skinning pooplo with the skin on, you just wait until I dictate my letter to the press in regard to that slander business. If I don't give them a wholesale dose, then my name is not Sam Jones. Xatiaasl Ii.ee Icy liCijoei. Colorado Springs, Colo., Sept. 11.
