Is Introduced by Harrison Whom - lie Praises. SPRUNG A SURPRISE. McKinley Says All Hawaiian Suirur Comes in Free. This Was in the Direct Interests j!' the Trust. Was Put Into the Tariff by the Senate. I.vnr anapc lis, Sept. 25. The formali ties of opeui ig the Republican campaign in Lidiana were gune through with here today. Upon Governor McKinley, of UUio, devolve 3 the pleasant duty of mak ing the declaration of war upon the in trenched lie nocracy of Hoosierdom and he discharged it as courageously and de fiantly hj lie was wont in other days to carry battles ioto the southern fields. The occasion was given added conse quence by the presence of ex-President Harrison, who, in a ten minute speech of introduction presented Ohio's governor to the tho usands that packed Tomliusou hall to the very walls. A large crowd of enthusiasts it was that faced the famous leaders of the Republican party com pressed and therefore complaining, but intent and respectful and most cordially responsive. During the morning Gov. McKinley was visited a- the hotel by hundreds. All of tho promii frit republicans of the state have come to the capital today and they individually paid their respects. Dele-jratii..n.-i cum. tig from various, points of the -.'.ate marched from the trains to the hotel, some o" them headed by bands of music, and cheered lustily for McKinley. Gov. . utthews beat his private secre tary u a carrlH'je for his fellow chief ex ecutive who caiiod at the eapitol build ing and had fin interchange of courtesies with the state ollicials. A great many have come in from out side the city to join thd local Republi cans, swelling the crowd to great pro portions and making it irnpossi ble for the hull to accoiuui odate tho.e who wanted to hear. Shortly after noou ex-President Harrison cailnd on Governor LlcKinley at his hotel and At 12:80 a procession was formed which escorted the ex-president and governor by an indirect route to the ball, where they were uproariously cheered on er tering. General Harrison presided. When he could obtain i hearing he made a char acteristic speech of introduction, in which he spoke of McKiuley's contest for the EepubLcin cause of protection and bis successful administration as governor of OMo, which had been given the ap proval last fa 1 of the biggest plurality vote that tho state had cast for any can didate since the war. s f - rr i i . i-iuvpiuui iuiuniej, on arising was given a round of cheers, prolonged and loud. Governor McKinley opened with an eulogistic refereuce to the ad ministration of President Harrison under which the country prospered as it had never prospered before or since. More manufactures, made by American workingrnen, more of the products of American farms were sent to the markets of the world during Presi dent Harrison's Administration than were ever before sent away in exchange for foreign gold.or have since been exported. Men found employment without dilli culty aud wages were good. Peace and prosperity were in the land. Since that day ia November, 189?, when President Harrison and the Republican party were voted out of the administrative aud executive oifices of the national K-overument, a change has occurred. Every one of the conditions which then existed have 1 een altered, and the nation has learned by bitter experience a les son in the practical application of poli tics which tie people have had au abundance of time to ponder; for they have not had much else to do. As an evidence that the people are not satiolied. acomptriiua was made between the election returns of 1892 and those of most recent dt.te, instances being given of Republican gini, which Gov. -McKinley regarded us indisputable proof that there as not only a general regret that a change of administration had been made, but als a dissatisfaction with the course of Democracy in its disposal of the great public questions vitally af fecting tho workshops, the farms and thw firesides of America. The address as devoted almost whol ly to a discus- on of the tariff and espe cially to the elfect of the Democratic tar iff law. A decided seusation wai sprung by the governor. lie presented a phase of the law recently pased which was a start ling surprise- t j the audience. The sugar schedule of the law (Sched ule E) in effect provides for a continua tion of the treaty of 1873, made with the king of the Hawaiian islands, under which all the sugar from those islands wa-, and is u ider the law of 1894, ad mitted free. The Unguare cf the schedule quoted is: "Provided lurther, that nothing here in contained shall be so construed as to abrogate, or in any manner impair or af fect the provis ous of the treaty of com mercUl reciprocity concluded between the United States and the king of said islands on the thirtieth day of "January, lb.o, or the provisions of anv act of con gress heretofore passed for the execu tion of the same." This provision was inserted in the law by the senate. It gives to the great euear trust, said Governor McKinley. an advantage wLich has not heretofore been BupectecL The buear production oi the Hawaiian inlands is under the con trol of the sugar trust; that country is the flai l of i . primary operations. "v. s.7, i --r:i tic patty took away from th- -, . ct the United States the bounty ct Albion dollars a year and bestowed a bounty of six million dol lars a year on the sugar producers of the Hawaiian islan.Is. giving them an advantage over not only the sugar pro ducers but of the whole world outside of these islands. The revolt of the Louisiana planters against the party which had smitten them so heavily was referred to and here Mr. Af cKinley pointed out that it was the Republican party, so freely accused of sectionalism, which had conferred benefits upon them which had been op posed by Democratic statesmen and re moved as soon as they had an oppor tunity to do so. The governor main tained that instead of being sectional the Republican party had shown itself to be entirely unsectional, bread and unselfish in its purposes and national in its politics.

Robinson Will Be Given the Presidency OF THE SANTA FE Provided That He Will Consent to Accept It. Mr. Robinson Talks With "Journal" Reporter. "A. A. Robinson is not here for his health," said a Topeka gentleman who knew what he was talking about today. "He is on his way east to attend a meet ing of the reorganization committee of the Santa Fe system. While he is there every thing will be fixed up a slate will be made aud when the directors meet here next month every thing will be harmonious and A. A. Robinson will be made president" , Mr. A. A. Robinson, formerly general manager of the Santa Fe, and now pres ident of the Mexican Central railway, is spending a few days in his l opeka home. A State Journal reporter who talked with him asked about the letter made public last week, which was purported to have been written by him, in which he was quoted as sayinjr he would have "nothing to do with the Santa Fe system until it is thoroughly washed and dried." Mr. Robinson looked amused as he re plied: "Those are about my sentiments." 'Ts it true, Mr. Robinson, that you have been offered the presidency of tne Santa Fe system":" queried the reporter. "I am now connected witn the .Mexican Central railway and one man can hardly be expected to look after the interests of more than one great railroad system at the same time." "You are now on your road to Boston are you not'.'" "Yes I am going east to be gone some time and will leave Topeka within two or three days for B ston. My present plana are to be absent f.om Mexico about two months. As vou know our treneral man- i ager of the Mexican Central resigned recently and Mr. Nickersou is there to I take his place when he retire. It ia pos j sible that I will be called back sooner i than I have arranged for, b.it I hardly e-xpect anything of that kind." The reporter assured Mr. Robinson I that Topeka people had been highly j gratified at the mention of his name i:i connection with the Santa Fe presidency and he said it was indeed gratifying to him to know of the kindly feeling of the people of Topeka towards him. When asked if the annual election of officers of the Frisco system which is to occur at St. Louis two days prior to the Santa Fe election here next month, would show anytniug in regard to the outcome of Santa Fo Kffairs, Mr. Robinson said: "It is my un derstanding that the stock of the Frisco system, a majority of which is held by the Santa Fe, is voted by the president of the Santa Fe as tiie stock holders of the two companies may direc:; it may of it may not show the line of policy to bo adopted at the Santa Fe meeting."

Uuder these circumstances it will be impossible for the Hayes reorganization committee to prepare any plan until they know the full status of their branch lines as well as the Atchison proper. It may take from four to six weeks to finish the work on the branch lines.

The archbishop remained undisturbed and completed the ritual as if nothing unus ual had happened. 1 he dignitaries on the platform with the archbishop took the matter less cool ly, and the persons in the crowd who saw the missile strike only a foot or two away from the archbishop displayed con siderable anger. Hundreds saw the potato sailing through the air, and there was a shout of warning as it descended, apparently in a direct line with the archbishop's person. C 0 N N E C T I C U T DEMOCRATS.

DON'T BE COWARDLY. Scott Wants the Debate and Curtis is Willing, But an Old Fogy Committee Stands in the Way. The State Journal is in receipt of the following letter from S. M. Scott: To tlie Kditor of the Statu .Touhn.M.: "Emporia, Kans., Sept. as, "Dear Sir: lu your Issue of the l!lst inst. I notice the following editor al: "Why should not l liaiies C urtis and S. M.

By ad means let us have the joint dl tie.' "1 desire to extend thanks to he State Joi r.vau for the compliments extende I. There is no necessity, however, for a joint u.ncusmou for the purpose of securing immense audiences. Our county rallies have been attended duriiiir the last two weeks by lrom i three U rive thousand people, j The voters of this congressional dis I trict seem determined to secure a joint discus I sion betweeu .Mr. t uriis and myscli. .Many pe i tiiions have been received by our committee making this request. I feel it my d.ity lo co.u ; ily Willi the request of these petitioners regard less of any seno n apprehensions 1 may possi I biy en.eriain. I am K'atiiieil to know liial our : congressional committee entertain tha same view. "1 iully realize the ability and personal wortli of Hon. t har.es Curtis. He is worthy ot any man's stee . He. mi doiibi. re;ibes tloit he is h. servant oi the people, and he will no doubt eom j ply with ihe request of h.s constituency regard ; less of the decision of an;' committee. '1 lie de I sire of the p op.e is ot i..ore importance than the dec.sioii ol any couiin uiee. and 1 am sure Mr. Curtis will agree with me upon this point Hi least. Trusting "that you wi.l continue in your favorable attitude toward the joint debao;. 1 am yours truly, S. .M. Scutt." Notwithstanding the desire of many voters, regardless of party, that Mr. Curtis and Mr. Scott shall meet in joint debate, the Republican congressional committee has decided that there shall be no joint debate. Petitions have been received from Re publicans and Populists from all over the district asking for a joint debate be tween the two candidates, and it is un derstood that .Sir. Curtis, as well as Mr. Scott, is anxious that the debate shall take place, and it is only the persistence of the Republican committee which pre vents the meetiu'. Howel Jones, chairman of the Repub lican congressional' committee, has writ ten the following - letter to Chairman Harvey of the Populist committee, refus ing to agree to the debute: Toi'KKA. September :22, IX'M. A. M. Harvey, chairman: Further answering your letter of the -Jtith re lating to the joint deoace between Congress man i harles ( urtis and rs. M.

Therefore tlie committee lintl tha. it win be impossible to have the joint debate proposed. How i i. Jon ks. 1 Chairman.' Now, in fact, there is no good reason j why Messrs. cott and Curtis should not 1 meet in joint debate. They are very ! nearly, if not quite, equally matched. If j Mr. Curtis is not bound to too narrow I lines he has the advantage, because the 1 record of the Populists who have been in ! office is vulnerable in the extreme. For the Republican committee to re fuse to engage Scott in debate will ap pear cowardly to most of the voters. Republicans have en tire confidence in Mr. Curtis. If they did not, they wouldn't be supporting him as earnestly as they are. The committee has no business to put Mr. Curtis in a bad light in the way they have. Let tho debate go on. It won't hurt the Repub licans and it won't help the Popuiists. We have had so much of this dodging policy this campaign. Now let ua have a fair, gquare fight and one iu which Curtis will undoubtedly come out with flying colors. SHOT BY A BURGLAR TRAP. John Konantx, of Arcadia, Kan., Fatally Wounded by it fitui. Ft.

SanJow has tried to lift the wonderful Mrs. Abbott and made the greatest failure of his life. The little woman who weighs loss than 100 pouuds, was a complete puzzle lo the man who lifts over 5.000. Saudow came to the Sturtovant House with au air of importance. The only preparation was tho providing of a board. It hai been explained that Mrs. Abbott cannot work on carpet, on metals or any good conductor. She must be in a measure insulated. That furnished by wood is euflicient. Mrs. Abbott stood on the carpet at lir.t and told Saudow to lift her up. Jlo grasped her about the waist aud in a second she shot up in the air as if sho had been sent from a cannon. She Hew out of his hands aud he caught her as nho came down. "You're like a feather," said Sanlow. Wait uutil I step upon the board," said Mrs. Abbott, laughingly. Then she s'epped upon the board. San dow. placed his hands about her slender waist lie bent his kuci-s, and held his arms close to his sides. Ho be gan to lift gradually. Mrs. Abbott did not budge. Gradually the iiihu increased his power. She was as immovable as au anchored column. Then tho stronu'-t man on earth, tho man whose superb muscular development has made him one of the most talked about men of his time, exerted all his force. The blender littie 93-pound woman didu't move an inch. Then Sandow took off his coat and tried it with the same result Then they tried an experiment with a stick. It was part of a pole such ha portieres are hung on. Mrs. Abbott held the polo perpendicularly, lightly between her lingers and told Sandow to try and force it down. He did his level best, but it wpuld not go. Jt seemed that anyone would have strength enough to force it from Mrs. Abbott's light grasp, but no person has apparently, for San dow ought to be able to do it if anyona can. and it was an impossibility for him, as he frankly confessed after he had perspired a deal in attempting it Neither could he take the stick from her when she held it horizontally. Sandow was simply paralyzed with wonder. Lifting is his point. He said frankly that so long as Mrs. Abbott was on the piece of board his strength wus of no avail. ENSMINOER ON TILL0TS0 N.

'Iho police commissioners formally heard the case of City Attorney Ti'lot son against Police Judge Ensminger as published in yesterday's Journal and in which Tillotson demands that Ensminger be removed from otlice because of the fact that he is the attorney for Lowe in the case tho city has against him for carrying on a scavenger business with out having the proper authority. .Ml parties concerned were at the hear ing which took place at the police sta tion yesterday afternoon. Mr. Tillotson made his statement of the case and Judge Ensminger explain ed that he had understood tho Lowe case would bo tried in the district court where he had a right to practice law. He had no desire to do anything that would conflict with his duties as police judge. The polico commissioners took much the same view of the matter and and the case against Etisninger was continued until such time as the supreme court should reach a decision in the Lowe case. In speaking of the case against him this afternoon, Judge Ensminger naid: "It is simply done for political elfect, nothing else: the whole thing shows it. As to Tillotson, I wish there was a trib unal before which I could get him on a charge of incompetency, I would convict him on plenty of counts. I don't think nuything further will be done about my case. They can't in the shape they have; it now. Considering the conditions of the Lowe case I have a legal right to do j ust as I have."
