... u ooc; 10 CENTS A WEEK.. NIGHT ,:ri0i. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 12, 1891. TWENTY-SECOND YEA I. if mm Fun "Poktil at the Shawnee County Democratic Ticket BY SENATOR 31AIITIN. Quite Certain Col. Tomlinson is a Ilepnljlican. Sapi Louian t nave nun Hudson, He Says. John I-I irtin, United State3 senator from Kausas, 13 at home again. "Yes. I ana a Democrat," said Senator Martin, in answer to a question from a Stat Journal reporter this morning. "I will le a candidate for re-election to the senate, Mil will make as many speeches in the state during the cam paign as I can, although on account of illnejs of my wife, who has been sick in bed fur three months, and i8 likely to be no better soon, I can't make a thorough canvass of tha state aa I have done in suin carnpaig oa." ' You will support the Overmyer ticket, will you?'' "Ye-?. I suppose I will; I am a Demo crat, although no meetings have been ar ranged for me yet" "What do you favor in the election of members of the legislature?" "I believe in leaving- this matter en tirely with the several counties, Where 14 0 v V A 0 '' EC-I.". JOTTN MARTIN. th? Democrats and the Populists can combine and elect a member of the leg-i-i t!i r and thereby defeat a Republi can. 1 tLiuk i. is right that they should ;o it. I believe they should defeat the Republicans whenever and wherever t'aer ca'.i." When atked to give an opinion on the loc-tl Democratic tight between the Eu gen Hagan and Frank Thomas fac tions, Senatcr Martin assumed a sur prised look aad tsaid: "t didn't know tuero was any trouble in local circles. Of course I knew there was nonie troubla in the county conven tion when da. elates were elected to the state convection, but 1 supposed that was all straightened out. 1 shall not bother myself about local affairs. If 1 make a campaign in the state it will be all that can Le expected of me." Senator Jlt.rtin, when informed that the local Democracy had on Saturday last nominated a county ticket, inquired about the nominees. When the re Dorter informed him that Col. W. I. Tcmlinson had been nominat ed for probate judge, he said: "Thai's a funny nomiu itbn to make, isn't it? I thought Toiclinson was a Republican. He was a Republican two years ago, and not only supported the Republican state ticket and vote I for it, but he voted for the Republican National ticket I thought he had gone back into tho Re publican i ar.y to stay." "Col. Tomlinson carries the Overmyer state ticket and tho county ticket nomi nated Saturday, at the head of his edito rial column in his paper, the Topeka Democrat," suggested the reporter. "That doof n't make any difference; the way he votes is what counts. I guess he surely must be a Republican. That's a very strange ticket to nominate to solidi fy tat Dsiuocratie voters of the county, isn't it?" "Charley Holliday was nominated for e'erk of the court aad Alike Heery for oonnty commissioner; they are both good Democrats are they not?" queried the reporter. "Oh ye; Charley Holliday is a good Democrat utd Mie Heery too. I wish Mi a Heery could be elected. Ho would make a sple-idid commissioner. Yes, Alike is a good Democrat, but I would like to know how Tomlinson is expected to ilidify tie Democracy of the county." "V, hat do you think of the withdrawal of Jeff. Hudson?" "1 don't know what to think about it It was a surprise to me, when I saw the announcement in the papers Jeff surely would have been re-elected. It is true there is another Democratic candidate in that district, that man Sapp, but I don't believe he would have drawn a tfaovisand votes away from Hudson. Ilu.lson did cot say anything to me about retiring and it wa? a very great surprise to ine." JOHN" MAItTlN" CAN'T GO BACK. Senator Fefter Sa Senator Martin Can't Ke Ke-elected. Senator PefTer, in speaking of the probable ro-eleetion of Senator John .Martin, said: "I guess John will not go bac ttottie senate. His course has not been satisfactory to our people, and he will be succeeded by a straight Populist. He made a jreat mistake when he went into the seaat.3 Democratic caucus. The Populists expected that he would take a diCerent stad, and have been greatly disappoint i in his action. When he arrived at Washington I betrged of him not to go into that cancus,' but he said that he cou d do nothing else; that he was a Democrat and must act with his party assjc:atea. I tried to convince him that he would better hold aloof from the caucus, and I guosa now he sees his mis take. Of course had he remained out of the caucus, he W5u!d have been given no patronage, but all the patronage he has dispensed has dona him no good. On the contrary it has ben a stumbling block in his way, and it w.ll continue to be until the t-nd of bis term. Had he identified himsa-lf with the Populists, as we had a right to expec: he would, he would now have a claim upon the party and might consistently as'c us to re-elect him. But hs did not, an i thstt settled his fate so far aa our party is concerned." GERMANS :il ST CONFORM. Supreme Chancellor of the K. l."a On tlie New Rules. New York, Sept. 12. Supreme Chan cellor W. B. Ritchie of the supreme lodge, K. of P., when questioned regard ing the action of that body ia interdic ting the use of the German ritual and adopting a resolution whereby saloon keepers and bar-tenders were prohibited from becoming members of the order, said: "The supreme lodge, of which I am at the head, has the power to decide what ritual shall be made, in which language it shall bo written, or whether any ritual shall be used at all. We have decided that in America the language of the greatest number of our people shall be used in the ritual, and tnat is the Dng lib. This was the decision of the su preme lodge, and by that I mean to stand. If we were to organize a lodge in France, we would naturally like to have the ritual in French. But in America it ia to be in English. "I regret very much that our German friends have taken offeaje at our de cision, but they cannot help it. I have many friends among Germans and in deed, am president of one German soci ety, end it pains me to learn of their withdrawal. "Of tho ritual regarding saloon keep ers and bar-tenders, I wis a to say it reads, '.No saloon keeper, bar-tender, or profes sional gambler shall be eligible to mem bership in this order.'"

BETTER SETTLE The Decker, Mullins and Berry Damage Suit. Heavy Taxpayers Seem to Agree on That Point. THEY SPEAK CLEARLY. The Judiciary Committee Meets Tonisrht to Act. The Members "Willing to. Con sider a Fair Proposition. The men who pay the taxes In Tope ka are ia favor of a settlement of the Decker, Mullins and Berry sewer case. A Journal reporter spent some time in questioning men who have the interests of the city at heart, and did not find one who is in favor of appealing the case. Here are some of the opinions expressed: P. L Bonebrake, president of the Cen tral National bank: "I am in favor of a compromise settlement of the judgment The city owes a debt, and the best thiug is to settle it and get it out of the way. We might have made a Hettlement once for $40,000, but we did not do it, and now we will have do the best we can." T. J. Kellam, president of the Mer chants' National bank "By all means the council should decide to settle it. It has been demonstrated by three trials that the city is responsible and the judg ment should be paid. There is no ques tion about the equity of the claim against the city. I do not pretend to give an opdnion about the amount, but it should be settled as soon as possible and save the city any further expense." Major Wm. Sims, president of the First National bank "I have been of the opinion for some time that the interests of the city would be promoted by an ad justment of the claim. When an indi vidual or a company obtains a judgment against a city, without going into the right or wrong of the que-tion, it is always best to settle it as speedily as possible. Delays are expensive and the city gener ally fails in the end." R. M. Gage, treasurer of the Topeka City Railway company "I think by all means the judgment should be settled. Pending litigation is always damaging to the credit of any city. The matter of this suit has already attracted some at tention in quarters outside of the state where, without an investigation of the merits of the case, it is classed as another effort of a Kansas town to repudiate its .obligations. We cannot, alfurd to; ac quire a reputation as litigants aud in th!1) c"se 1 think it is a general opinion among tax payers that no verdict for a smaller amount will ever be rendered, while much fear has been expressed that another verdict might be for $150,000." Guilford Dudley, banker "I think it will be business to adjust the matter. Th city should pay what it owes as soon aa possible. I do not know whether the judgment is correct or not, but the city ought to be able to make some satisfac tory agreement with those who hold the judgment as to the amount I would like to see it fixed up." JIDICIAKY COMMITTEE MEETS. The Councilmen Intrusted With the Mat ter to Hold a. Session. The committee on judiciary of the city council. City Attorney Tillotson aud P. G. Noel, financial agent of the city, meet tonight to discuss the question of appeal ing the Decker, Mullins & Berry sewer case. The members of the committee are: Councilmen Bradford, of the Third ward; Ilolman, of the First; Burgess, of the Fourth and Fulton of the Fifth. Gen. Bradford, who is chairman of the committee, is not in the city, and will not meet with the committee. All the councilmen in the committee are in favor of settling the judgment rather than appealing the case to the su preme court, but none are in favor of paying the full amount of the judgment The probabilities are that the committee will agree upon a compromise, which will be submitted to the holders of the judgment It is the general opinion of the whole council that the claims of the material men should be paid, and tho compromise would not apply to these claims. Councilman Fulton says that if a set tlement at the contract price can be made he is in favor of adjusting the judgment, Ho saya this would reduce the judgment about $ia,000, which would bring the amount down to $55,000. Councilman Ilolman says he favors a settlement if it can be secured on a satis factory basis but if this can not be secured he favors an appeal. Councilman Burgess also favors a set tlement if a compromise can be secured. Mr. Tillotson is in favor of appealing the case. The First to Pile. The nomination papers of tf. M.
