Tlie Eanta F Issues Xesscs to All Newspapars AS PAYMENT FOR ADYERTI3SKSST3. The ChargeThat Ppulit 1'apert Are Iinorea on Account of rh r i r Poli tics Befnted by AdvertiiiDg liana Etr i in pou The Alliance Gazette published at Hutchinson, which has been righting the Santa Fe for some time, says editorially: If the Santa Fe is not in league with the Republican party as some claim, why is it that it gives passes to all the Repub lican papers and none to the Populist papers? One at a time please." W. IL Simpson, advertising manager of the Santa Fe, gives the following facts: The Santa Fe does business with the newspapers of Kansas without respect to politics. The Gazette formerly did business with the Santa Fe, but when that paper entered upon a relentless warfare against the road witnout regard to politics the advertising manager simply withdrew hia business from the columns of the pa per and ordered the parses in tho hands of its publishers taken up. Afterwards the Santa Fe gave the Gazette trans portation with an agreement for fair treatment, but that agreement was soou broken. The Santa Fe then introduced its ad vertisements into the columns of the Ga zette through a ready print house and a3 the Gazette did not get transportation for this advertising it has since been fighting the road editorially. Mr. W. II. Simpson, advertising mana ger of the Santa Fe, says it is the policy of the road to patronize all the papers in its territory without regard to politics, but that there are a few papers in the state with which the road can not do. business just as there are a few men in every community who can not or will not do business with their local mer chants. Mr. Simpson says most of the Populist papers published iu towns along the line of the Santa Fe publish advertising mat ter for the road in exchange for trans portation. O.NLt SKCOXD CLASS IVlio Fear tlie Adoption of tlie "Woman Suffrage Amendment .Says Simpson. Jerry Simpson says he is for woman's suffrage unqualifiedly. In his speech opening his congres sional campaign at Wichita ho said: "A responsible human being-, innocent of crime, yielding allegiance to the govern ment, answerable to it in person and property for disobedience, and yet denied any political right, is a slave. Women have an inhereut and constitu tional right to vote and ought not to be de barred from exercising that right, and 1, j as a champion ci human rights and con- 5 stitutional liberty, nnd believing- that i every h-iman being- be not only allowed I but protected in the exercise of all in- i herent lights he h;is, cannot consistently do other-vise than uphold the enfran chisement of women. "There is nothing to fear from women j voting. It is only second clans m m that fear the domination of women in poli tics. I do not fear it. If she can fill my position better than I cat:, let her do it; what the peoplo want is results. The constitutional amendment in regard to woman sulfirage has to le met by the voters of the state. It will be printed upon all the ballots. It will be found upon the Democratic ticket. Republican ticket and the People's party tit net. The voter must vote ''for' or "againtt." It is an issue by itself, which tiie voter must determine by his ballot. I have my opinion and convictions upon that sub ject, and I am in favor of granting to woman her inherent and constitutional right to vote, and shall so declare with my ballot. "What is woman's causo is man's cause, and I am for the enfranchisement of wo men first, last and all tho time." A LETTER FItOI WINNIE DAVIS. Published in Hilly Uolton's l'apt r-Xot a Woman SiiRVaijif.t. Billy Bolton's paper, tho Woodward, Ok., "News," publishes a letter from Miss Winnie Davis denying that she has be come a Republican. The story that she had renounced the Domocracy was first published in the Troy Chief as follows: Miss Winnie Davis, daughter of Jeff Davis, and the "Daughter of the Confed eracy," who now lives at Colorado Springs, Colo., where women have the right to vote, has announced her deter mination to vote the Republican ticket. And still the tidal wave continues to wave." This item was republished in the Wichita Eagle, where it was seen by Captain F. S. Harris of Woodward, Ok., a personal friend of Misa Davis, who wrote to her about the story and received the following reply: Narragansett Piek. R. I., Aug. 30. Capt. F. S. Harris, Woodward, Ott. : Dear Captain Yours kindly enclos ing clipping- of Wichita Eag-le from Kan Baa Chief to hand. iiiany thanks lor tho opportunity you give ma to contradict in toto the statement. I am proud to say I am a resident of Mississippi and, there fore, would have no right to vote in Colorado. Again, I never would, under any con sideration, give adhesion to any save the Democratic party, in which I have been brought up. I am not a believer in woman's rights, and, therefore, would havj gravn daubts about voting, even if my own state were to give her daughters a voice in politics. I spent three months with my sister (with whom you are acquainted) in Colo rado, and that is the oniy fjraiu of truth I can discover in the s:ory. You will greatly oblige me by positively stating that the statement iu the Kansas Chief is untrue. Believe me with renewed thank?, cordially your friend. (Winnie.) Vksxa Amie Davis. MK. PEFFKK'S HOPES HlCiH. everywhere, and I think we have organ izations in every state iu the union, with perhaps the exception of Rhode Island and Connecticut, and I think by this time we have organizations in those states also. Congressman ar belag nominated in all the districts, and ws will have between twenty-five and thirty-five congressmen in the Fifty-fourth con gress enough to hold the balance of power. "Our greaUst gaim will come from the south and nortnwest, and in the large cities. And it is possible and within the range of probability that we will get one member in New York and three in Chi cago. We will hold our own in all the states and gain in many. The states in the northwest where we will gain are Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Wy oming, Montana, Minnesota and the Da kotas. "In Nebraska, things are somewhat mixed, and the Populists show a disposi tion to unite with the Democrats, which will probably result as it did in Kansas, in electing a Democrat to the United States senate. "In the south a majority of the white voters south of Virginia are Populists, except perhaps in Louisiana and Texas. The negroes will largely go to the Dem ocrats at least their votes will be count ed that way. The right there is like it is in Kansas, the dominaut party ia fight ing the Populists, not the old enemy. "What is known as JetTersoniau Dem ocracy is coming our way. The earth works have been taken to use an army phrase and the rest will soon follow. "At the last election in Alabama, as far as the actual vote is concerned we car ried the state by a big- majority but in the black belt they made up the votes they lost elsewhere. In Tom Watson's district two vears ago he carried nine out of the ten counties. The other county included Augusta and they made up tho losses there. They waited until they knew how many votes were needed and then they supplied them in the tenth county. That is the way they are trying to do things iu the south." Politlcul Jiotes. Col. WT. P. 'fomlinson says when Sena tor Martin comes home his tirst duty as a Democrat will be to straighten out the Shawnee club which was called into life to do him honor. Tom O'Neil the Democratic candidate for congress in this district has declined to get off the track in favor of S. M. Scott the Populist nominee. C. L. McKesson of Howard, Elk coun tv, will bo one of the most prominent candidates for the Populist nomination for congress to succeed Jeff Hudson in the Third district. Mr. McKesson is now one of the most influential members of the state central committee and is a trusted advisor of Chairman Breiden thal. Chairman Breidenthal has received a letter from K. H. Atchison of Oswego, Labette county, chairman of the Third district congressional committee, in which he says Jell Hudson is ull right, his withdrawal was simply on account of his private business, but that he has made a large contribution to the con gressional campaign fund and has agreed to stump the district for the Pop ulist ticket. 8 0 CI A L AND PEiiSO X A L .
