A GOOD STATEMENT.
But the Committee Iitl fot Make It, Says
Mr. Bristovv.
The Emporia Republican recently
published. a Ion editorial favoring
Major Calvin Hood of Emporia for United
States senator, and the editorial has
caused consternation among the mem
bers of the state central committee, from
the fact that the article quoted from a
circular said to have been issued by the
committee, as follows:
"Although in no sense a politician.
Major Hood's election to the senate
would be creditable to the state and con
tribute materially in restoring our credit
and good name among the people of the
nation. His wide acquaintance with the
solid business men of the east and west
would give him an influence in the sen
ate that would be equal to that of Major
Morrill iu the governor's chair."
Secretary Bristow said: "I know noth
ing of such a circular and nothing of the
kind has emanated from this committee.
It should be apparent to anyone that we
would not do a thing of that kind." The
other members of the committee who are
in the city say the same thing.
The Journal does not know to what
comuiittee then the Republican refers,
but the statement itself is a remarkably
true and commendable one so far
, as it goes. Major Hood is
! one of the test financiers and
! executive business men. in this country
j and congress nseds j ust such
men to disentangle the financial
troubles into which this nation has
drifted. Major Hood would lend
his aid too in remonetizing sil
ver. He does not believe iu the
single gold standard, and thinks a great
mistake, which ought to be remedied,
was made when silver was dethroned.
WILSON RETURNS HOME.
The Gould and Otlier Well Known
Peo-
pie on the. Slime Ship.
New Yokk, Oct. 6. After a stormy
voyage the American line steamer New
Y'ork has arrived at her dock in this city.
Among the passengers were Mr. and
Mrs. George Gould and family. Congress
man W. L. Wilson, Congressman isidor
Strauss, Henry Abbey, A. Cas Caniield,
Philip Schuyler, W. S. and Norman
Cramp of Philadelphia.
After breakfast lion. W. L. Wilson and
Hon. Isadora Strauss took seats on the
upper deck and talked with an Associa
ted Press reporter. Both of them asked
eagerly for pioliticil news and scanned
the newspapers carefully.
.vir. Wilson replying to several ques
tions said: "I feel fuily recovered from
my recent illness and have enjoyed my
trip very much." The speaker's face
was the picture of health. ,
Speaking of his trip abroad, he said:
"I did not go over to talk tariff, but I met
a number of the leading tiaancial and
business men in London last week at the
Chamber of Commerce dinner. 1 ppoke
to them, and said the new tariff bill was
not made to suit them, but to suit Ameri
cans. "My remarks, I -believe, were cabled
over here and I have nothing to add to
them. The British will have to look out
for us when we get free raw material,
for we will command supremacy in man
ufactures; our merchant marine wili be
restored and our merchants will appear
in neutral markets." y
Mr. Gould said to-a reporter: "I have
no fault- to find with the treatment or
the criticism or the statement by the
Fnglish newspapers in connection, with
the yacht races. The Vigilant isa heavy
weather boat and not euited to the itnide
courses. The Britannia is quicker in
stays, but I consider mine the better
boat. I may go back again to race on
the other side, but 1 cannot say that it
will be next year. I may build auother
yacht, but I am uot certain and I don't
like making plans for the f uture."
Speaking of his family he said: "My
sister Anna is now ia school in Paris and
studying hard. She is uot engaged to
any prince or any one else, and when
she is I will announce it."

Marshali.tow?, Iowa., Oct. 6.
Governor McKinley arrived from
Des Moines at 9:40 a. m. to-
j day, accompanied by Governor Jackson,

ans. The committee of escort from this
city met the visitors at Nevada.
The noted advocate of protection
was hurried up town to the court house
park, where he spoke for twenty minutes
I m the open air to fully o.OOO people. His
speech, though necessarily brief, was
characteristic, pointed and forcible, and
the enthusiasm of the crewd was un
bounded. Col. Henderson spoke briefly
following McKinley, who left for St.
Paul.
At Ackley the governor said: "I have
been speaking for some days, doing what
I could for Republican principles and
the Republican party, and I have found
that it is in the hearts of the American
people to stand by the great princi
ples of a protective tariff which
means patriotism and prosperity.
We are indebted more than we
can express to Mr. Cleveland and his ad
ministration for this splendid spirit of
Republicanism that we iind everywhere
iu the land.
"Everything has suffered since that
fatal day in November, but the Re
publican party. The principles of that
party are dearer to the American people
today than they have ever been before,
and we can almost afford to
bear with the ills that have
been put on us during the3e years be
cause they have made the people see
that the material prosperity of this coun
try is safer iu the hands of the Republi
can party than in the Democratic party.
"This administration has made Demo
crats aud independent Republicans, weak
Republicans, stalwart aud stalwart lie
publicans invincible."
Congressman Henderson accompanied
Governor McKinley from Des Mouiea
ami introduced him to the people in his
district. Governor Jackson and ( hair
man Blythe also escorted KcKinley to
the Minnesota line.
MAD AT THE KING.
JPorturuene Naval Ottieers Prepared a Man
ifesto and the Xriiiter of It was Arrested.
Madkip, Oct. 6. According to advices
received here from Lisbon the greatest
excitement prevails at the capital of Por
tugal. It is stated that a lartre
number of Portuguese naval offi
cers, aggrieved at a certain passage
in the speech which the king recently
made at the opening of the Portuguese
court, drew up a manifesto, in the form
of a protest, addressed to the nation. No
names were attached to this document,
but its authors are known to bo men of
high position and influence.
The police have arrested the man who
printed the manifesto and the greatest ex
citement has been caused at Lisbon by this
action upon the part of the dissatisfied
naval officers. In connection wtth the
disturbance it is reported that the minis
ter of marine, J. A. De Brissac Des Neus
Ferrena, will tender his resignation.
The Portuguese authorities, according
to the advices received here have re
fused to allow any news regarding the
action of tne naval officers and its proba
ble consequences to be telegraphed
abroad and as the result this information
had to be sent here by mail from Lisbon.

lighting between the Arabs and Belgians

DR. PARKHURST'S CHOICE.
The Woman Selected to Lead tlie Cam
paign of Influence Is IMscovered.
'New Yokk, Oct. C The woman
whom' the Rev. Dr. Parkhurst has been
seeking to lead the "Campaign of Influ
ence" has been discovered. She is Mrs.
Charles Russell Lowell, daughter of the
venerable .Mrs. Shaw, who has given to
the cause of woman suffrage four daugh
ters. 3Irs. Lowell ia perhaps better known
arJosephine Shaw Lowell. She iives
next door to her mother's house, and is a
woman of social prominence as well as a
woman of intelligence and thought. Sev
eral problems have for a longtime en
gaged her attention, but her assumption
of the leadership ofDr. Parkhurts's idea
was considered impossible by those who
know her best.
Mrs. Lowell comes of a family that
have long been connected with public
at'airs. Her sister, Mrs. George William
Curtis, is a woman of rare attainments.
Another sister is Mrs. Robert Miuturn, a
leader in the fashionable society of this
city.
Mrs. Lowell said last night:
"I feel called upon to undertake this
work. The outrages of law that have so
long been thrust upon the citizens of
this city have stirred" me deeply, and
when Dr. Parkhur3t, through the press,
urged the women to uso their influence
in organized effort I felt called upon to
respond.
i '"I did not come forward when the first
invitation was offered because I felt that
many other women were more fitted to
head a crusade but when I saw tho
apathy, the lack of courage to take up
the work, I decided to do so."
"What are my plans? Briefly, they
are to so instruct women that they will
see and understand just where the errors
in our form of municipal government
exist and what the remedies are. Women
should be as much interested in decent
government as men, for they have the
same interests to support and the same
oppressions to bear."

Japanese Fleet of 70 Ships
Enters Gulf of Pe-Chi-Li.
Great Excitement Prevails in
Shanghai and Elsewhere.
London, Oct 6. A dispatch from
Sir ftiai today says that the masters of
several Chinese junks which arrived at
Che Foo yesterday report having sight
ed a large fleet of Japanese transports
escorted by warships on Tuesday night.
This Japanese fleet was then entering
the gulf of Pe Chi Li and after steam
ing westward for some distance the
course of the war ships and transports
was altered to about northeast. All the
Japanese fleet warships and transports
included, numbered severity ships. -,
Their presence in the gulf of Pe Chi
Li has caused the greatest excitement at
Shanghai and elsewhere. In Loudon it is
believed that the Japanese fleet referred
to as having been sighted is the expe
ditionary force consisting of 3U,U00 men
which left Hiroschima, the Japanese
headquarters on September UO, under
sealed orders and under command of
Field Marshal Count Oyama, who was
Japanese minister of war.
L'pon taking command of the expedi
tion, he temporarily handed over the
portfolio to the minister of marine, Count
Saigo. This force composed the second
Japanese army corps and was escorted
by the second Japanese squadron.
A dispatch received at New Chong of
Lao Ton says that the Chinese are in f ull
retreat from Moukden, which is threat
ened by the advance of the Japanese
troops from Corea, and the Japanese
force said to have been landed near Pas
hiet Bay and not far from the Russian
teiritor. bordering on Corea and the
Chinese province of Manchuria.
Another report which reaches London
from Shanghai says that it is believed
at the latter city that the Chinese force
which has been defending Moukddn
has been hastily summoned from that
place in order to oppose the projected
Japanese landing either in the gulf of
Pe Chi Li, or in the gulf of Lao Ton.
