The Topeka race moating maile a re markable record not in speed, but pre cedent. It was n)t a source of financial loss to its Lackers. Year after year, fairs an 1 race meet ugi in Topeka havo lin ishei with the talance on the wrong side of the le Iger. This year it is not (o. The meeting did not make money for its l ackers, hut did much Letter than they expected itj coming out just about t.ia, a-, near f 8 tb-y can tell just now. Guilford l);iliey, vice president of the Olympic aud Race association, and oue of the prime movers iu the enterprise, said to a jJocpmal reporter last night: "You will he sift; iu saying that we didn't lose money. 1 doubt if we are anything ahead, but the twenty-one Lackers who put up $200 apiece will not be called upon to pay a ly deiicit. This is much Letter than we expected at the close of the second d-ty. But when we saw the big crowd on the third day, we felt pretty safe, and the mag n tieent attendance today assure? us that there is n cause for anxiety. Last summer the outlook for the races was so poor tliat we were tempted to drop them ' ltogether, but we decided we had en listed for the w.r and we might as well Bee it throueh, even if we had to put up the whole of our $-00 guaranty. "We have tried to couduct the races on a business basis. There is no conflict i-. the duties of the various officers and we have pat 1 all our bills as we went along. We keep books and we can tell just where evtry cent went to." The attendaace at the races yesterday was not equal to that of Thursday, but was probably 2,500 people. The track was not heavy, as feared. The great rf.ee of the day. and in fact of the wholo meeting, was the free-for-all pace. Fivj of the fleetest horses in the west went around the track tea times to determine which was the winner. The result: Belle Mahone 15 2 11 Ittd K 4 1 1 2 2 Pansy Blosson 5 2 3 3 3 Laura T 2 3 4 5 4 Rose water 3 4 5 4 dr The only other race was the 2:14 trot, which was won by Norther in three out of four heats, aa follows: Norther 2 111 Sir Thomas 12 4 5 Dolly 3 9 2 2 B.

Sol Miller's Attacks oa Ilorrill Twelve Years Ago, KOW BEING USED BY POPULISTS. Miller Bald That Morrill M ai Oirned by Jay Uoald in IS Cy LeUnd's Explaaatlon of That Jk'igtxt en Ilor rill. Sol Miller, editor of the Troy Chief, has by his utterances agaiast Major E. N. Morrill a few years ago, put a club in the hands of the enemies of his party, which they are now using vigorously. Among the quotations from Miller'a paper which are being used by Major Morrill's enemies, are the following: The state convention last week, after being skaken up like a box of lo:tt-t d ee and turned out, selected fj.

Chief, June 15, iss. Chairman Cy. Leland of the Republi can state central committee, who man aged Major Morrill's campaign which gave him the nomination of his party for governor, aud who is now directing the state campaign, when asked what effect Sol. Miller's old fight on Major Morrill would have on the prerent campaign, said: "It won't have any effect at all; it was so lona: ago, and then Major Morrill has since that time made a record for himself that completely refutes any at tacks made on him prior to his entering congress. I was against Major Morrill in that campaign. It was this way: Major Morrill's friends attempted to carry Doniphan county over our heads, but nobody ever did that, and that was the reason we were against him. "As to Major Morrill's record in con nection with the railroad lands: The St. Joseph and Grand Island sold a lot of ita lai.d ieap, aud along with the rest of it, a considerable portioti was deeded to Major Morrill. Major ilorrill simply saw aud took advantage cf an opportuni ty to get some cheap lands." SHE HAS A NEW SONG. Miss Slay Hue k I n itliauj Will Slug It In "Tile Jrust Mail." There was a better attendance at the Grand last night to see the "Fast Mail." Things ran smoother, too, and the train went through without a hitch, catching the mail bag as it went. The audience was not so top heavy last night, and there was a very good first lioor attendance. Harry Robinson was fully up to his standard in Sleuth, and his wife, who is playing under the namj of Kmma But- l ler, describes Mary Martin's misery and courage in a way that pleases ner au dience immensely. The favorite with the audience is May Buckingham, who does Bivy Ann, the detective's wife. She is a vivacious blond with a splendid voice, ucd her rendition of the laughing song, with her own orig inal little iaugii thrown in, receives as much applaue as all the rest of the piece put together, almost. She received three encores on it last night, and even then the audience wasn't satisfied. It has been eleven years since Miss Bucking ham appeared in Topeka, although she doesn't look it. Since then she has been singing in comic opera and has been the "second lead" in several of the best companies that toured the east. Tonight she will aing a new song that has never before been sung in public. It is entitled "A Kiss in the Dark,", and will Le sung as an encore to follow tle laughing song. The words of the song wore written by Albert C. Sprague, and the music by Will II. Stevens, both members of the company. A Journal reporter heard the song rehearsed last night and it is very pretty. Mr. Carter is writing a new play and will star Miss Bucking ham next year. Stevens, as Tickey the operator, and aa Macaroni the dago, is good. The piece wdll close its Topeka run to night On Monday and Tuesday wa will have "The Tornado," which a good many peo ple believe is a Letter scenic show than the "Fast Mail." The next Lig attraction at the Grand will Le Oscar Wilde' famous comedy, "Lady Windermere's Fan." It is only necessary to say to those posted in the atrical matters that the company is one of Gustave Frohman's best. It will Le here on Saturday and Monday evenings, SeptemLer 29th and October 1st. Vaudeville at tike Musee. Manager Lawler has secured for the musee next week the well known Mc Intyre Fitzgerald Vaudeville company. It will consist of the following perform ers: BIcIntyre and Itice, Irish sketch artists; Fitzgerald and Lewis, in charac ter sketches and impersonations; William Blach, the German hercules, in feats of strength; O'Hourke and Bennett, in song and dance and acrobatic work, and Inez Pear!, in song aud transformation dances, the best, Mr. Lawler says, that has ever visited Topeka.

B. Jolansoa Addresses an East Sid? Meeting. HE IS FREQUENTLY INTERRUPTED. Keme Disturbance Created Jnilje Johnson Denounces CoscjiiUi and Auairliy. There was a Republican meeting in the park at the east end of the Sixth street viaduct last evening. The principal speaker was Judge J. B. Johnson. W. C. Pickering, a Santa Fe shop man, was chairrnaa of the meet ing. The Republican flambeau club at tended the meeting in a body. Judge Johnson said that "Republican ism stands for green fields, sunshine and prosperity, while Populism stands for beggary, want, gloom aud Coxeyism." He read the letter written by Associate Justice Allen. Judge Johnson then discussed the at titude of the Populists toward the labor ing men and said: "A few weeks ago there was an army of tramps banders' army among us. These lead ers went to these poor misguided men and persuaded them to go out ou a junk eting tour, aud they left their wives and babies to want and penury. What should be said of a man who leaves his wife and family in poverty to go off on a wild goose chase? Yet the governor and the other Populist leaders went down to these scullions and sympathized with them to make these people think they are the friend3 of labor. Everybody was glad when this array was gone. They had seized property which did not be long to them, aud were guilty of crime. The action of these Populist3 was the action of demagogues. They should have gone to these men and told them they had made a mistake and advised them to return home. "Ihe recent strike, you will atrree with me, was an awful mistake. You left your work to go out on a strike in sym pathy with some fellows down in Chi cago, you had never seen or heard of. "Every one of these Populists, to in sinuate themselves into your friendship and get your votes, told you to strike aud express sympathy for Russians, Italians and others and leave your wives and children to suffer. They should have told you to go slow, to be careful but instead these demagogues came to you and said strike, we will stand by you aud feed you. Did they do it?" (Voices, no, no). "That was a sample of this Populist statesmanship. "As a rule all people sympathize with laboring men. I sympathize with the man who is without a job more than the man who has work. I admit that there is a depression but in my opiniou it is due to a Democratic president and con gress and Populist admisistrations throughout the country." Judge Johnson then discussed the tariff question. He said: "We have a woolen mill here, but it can't live under the present tariff. ' "What about the fetarch factory," asked a cigar maker named Heiser. "It never did have anything to run on" replied Judge Johnson. lleiser "It did run just the same." Johnson "I do not mean to say that every industry will prosper, but what I mean is that if American industries will live they must be protected." Heiser again attempted to interrupt the speaker but was called to order by the chairman who said: "Keep your gib to yourself." Jfo more interruptions occurred until Judge Johnson said, "There isn't an an archist who isn't a Populist," when Hei ser asked: "What is an anarchist?" "Shut up!" shouted a half-dozen Toices. The chairman: "I told that fellow to shut up once." Dan Wyatt: "I do not understand that this is a joint debate." Johnson: "Jufet let me alone and I will attend to him unless they double teams on me. I will answer his question. He came from the same country that you did. He knows no law, no country, no God, no Hag, no wife, no ALL THE t Pass Fair Opinions About Our aft And OVE'RCOjTS sWEfc. -fc j ifc Qfr T ifj fHk "ijjm. Ik O ."-A'l-'Xi? rr?: - -.i . (Cf children, and when America asserts itself I hope it will hang every one of them higher than Hamau." A Voice "I would like to shake your hand just once." Judge Johnson then completed a vivid picture of the Anarchist as he appears in America nnd there was a continuous storm of applause, lie closed his speech with a discussion of the silver question and was not acrain interrupted. Miss Susie E. Jones, who was formerly a teacher in the deaf and dumb asylum at Olathe, spoke a few mi mites about the Populist management of the state in stitutions. Col. Veale was then called for. He devoted the greater part of his speech to an arraignment of (i. C. Clemens. He said, "Clemens had charged in a speech that he was employed by me in a bank ruptcy case and that he had to sue me to get his lee of $500. He lied when he said, it and I have his receipts to prove that he doei." Col. Veal then discussed Clemens' per sonal record and made sensational charges in reference to his marriage and his subsequent actions. NOT OBJKCTING TO IT. Charles Ourti Hays His Committee Will Decide Whether He Will Debate. "I am in favor of the coinage of the product of silver of the American miues at a ratio of 16 to 1," said Congressman Charles Curtis today. "I am not in favor of opening our mints to the free coinage of foreign silver unless they are com pelled to pay a duty. It would be very unfair to American silver miners and the American people to permit the Mexican silver producers whose dollars contain more silver than ours and only pass for 75 cents to coin them into dollars at American mints." Congressman Curtis has spent the past week in Morris county. He says that his audiences have beeu large aud en thusiastic and that in places where the Populists utterly failed to draw crowds the Republican meetings are very large. Next week he goes to Greenwood county. The Journal reporter asked him whether he intended to meet S. AI. Scott, the Populist nominee, in joint debate. "I have heard that petitions are leing circulated asking that we meet in debate but I have nothing whatever to do with it. I am in the hands of the committee and whatever action they take will be satisfactory to me." ACTED THE SAMARITAN'. A. C. Sherman Did -Mont of the Kntertiain ing of Fred Clone. A. C Sherman, the Republican candi date for member of the legislature in the north representative district, said today: "Fred Close came up to Rossville yester day at noon to make a speech, but nobody met him and he seemed to be lost. I hnally went to him aud told hitn I'd show him a place to put his grip, and I took him into the drug store and put his grip on the table. There were three or four Populists around, but they paid no attention, and he took the next train back to Topeka, and came up again on the evening train with John Schenck and C. IL Custenborder. They addressed a meeting of about three hundred peo ple, Republicans and Populists. "After the meeting they went to the hotel, but it was full, and they couldn't get a bed, and they sat out on the porch and talked until the four o'clock train came along. I intend to see Close today, and tell him that if I had known his Pop ulist trieuds were not taking care of him I would have given him a Wed." ANOTHER ANTI-RACE MAN. He is Indignant That Uusiness should be Jstopped For itaces. To the Editor of the State Journal: When business is suspended in order that employes may attend the races and thus come in contact with a class of peo ple who would naturally inculcate iu them the principle of honesty (?) aud faithfully (?) serving their employers, we are forcibly reminded of "the eternal fitness of things." Aside from all moral phases of the question that the leading business men of a city of the pretentions assumed by Topeka, would permit a horse race to interfere with the routine of business ia practical evidence that we A 11 )) H (? ) c have at last found "something new under the sun." Does Topeka aspire to share the honors usually conceded tu cross-roads vUlnj;esT Even Dodge City might well bo ashamed of aucu business metiiods. Furthermore, the local pugilistic talent uro aligmcd in the distribution of favors why uot sus pend business and encourage the pnze nghter? Surely he, too, is wormy of consideration, or perhaps 'tis not nuces sary inasmuch as ljcal prize lights are usually billed tor buuday.
