David OTermjer Reiterates Didn't !t It. To the Editor of the State JorRXAL: : i Great Beni, Kan., Oct. 23. Iq your ' paper of the 20tu you puhlisa my denial of the absurd lies the Populists are circulating- about my having1 made prohibi tion and woman suffrage speeches and having denounced the Germans. You also publish some other matter intended to contradict me, bat which does not contradict, Ia the first place these sup ! posed contradictions do not refer to the ; question of woman suffrage or the Ger : mans, bat allude simply to prohibition, j Your informant frankly admiu that the 1 speech attributed to me wai not pub ! Lshed at the time (twelve years ago), but j says he wrote it out himself from in- formation given him by some persons in I the service of the present administration; j and yet, as first published by you this ! alleged speech was put in quotation marks as though a literal copy. It ia I eminently fitting- that such an infamous ! lie should emanate from that buzzard'3 roost at the state house. As to Judge Huron's statement, it is clear that he, like your informant, timply assumes that I was for prohibition because I made a Republican speech when prohibition was ia the platform, but Judge Huron's memory ia clouded by a private grievance against me, and hi conscience dulled thereby. As to II r. Wilson, A. J. Arnold, his employer, told me yesterday morning that Wiison told him that he knew nothing about the matter, and had made no such statement as you publish. Mr. Arnold, to whom I referred you, aiao told me that your re porter waa informed by him that he had known me from the time of my arrival in the state, and that I had always been opposed to prohibition. Why didn't you publish that? Now in conclusion I repeat, that any man who says that I ever at any time or p c uttered one word ia fivur of female suffrage, directly or indirectly, or that I ever uttered one word for prohibition, directly or indirectly, or against the Ger mans, ia an infamous liar, and if he will swear to it I will send him to the peni tentiary. David Oveemier. David Overmyer asks in the above let ter why we did not publish the state ment of A- J. Arnold (and X. 11 Arnold) in regard to his position on prohibition and suffrage. What they had to say was published October 22 in the Journal. in order mat 3lr. Overmyer and ali par ties interested may see it, it is repub lished below.

Preacher and Lecturer Speaks About tlie I if li. Denver, Oct. 24. Robert ilcTntyre, the pastor of Trinity Methodist church, and the well known Chautauqua lecturer, made an address here last night, which ia attracting much attention. "The idea of the average wealthy man," said Dr. .Meiutyre. "is to be minis tered ta He wants yachts, privata cars, cooks, waiters, servants aad to hve many backs bowed down under bur dens of serving. This is the very re verse of Christ's idea, Christ dined with social outlaws. He Eked lepers. He was charged with being a friend of publicans aad sinners and he never denied the charge. I a these days ! we hear of churches ciosiag their doors Sunday nights. One sermoa a day, read from manuscript dried tongue is ail the rich pew-holders want The speaker continued by saying that 10U years atro there were uo millionaires aud no paupers in this country. Wealth has flowed into the hands of the na tion until it reiches the enormous amount of $ll V 'O j,0 -.. one-half of which is ia possession of SoyJOO per sons. The time has come when one man owns more than the as essed valuation of four states of the un ion in 1870. There will be more mdlion aires, said the speaker, an i the great problem is what to do with them. Pov -erty is becoming more unbearable as the people are tetter educated. The day is past when an American citizen will sletp on a plank and dme on turnip and water and be satisfied. Th newspapers aad public schools have set the people to thinking. People are better educated and better fed than in the past,and there are several ideas atloat. ' I'd rather see labor in a ferment of agitation ail the time than to sea it get ting down to hopeless serfdom," con tinued the speaier. "The rapids of Niagara are not half so terrible as the scum that covers a ewamp. One man dies from the rapids and a whole set tlement gets the ague from the swamps. Laboring ccea fere kicking right hard just now, and they will make no mistake if they kick the right way. A lunatic 6e result, but doesn't see causes. Let theai kick at the causes. It would be wise to look into causes of want and misery instead of thi miscel laneous damning of wealth. "Job was the nrst Populist. Bee how Job scorches and blisters th wealthy.

Arnold, to whom David Overmyer refers as one of the men who has known about his political position since he came to Kansas, was seen by a State Journal reporter about Mr. Overmyer's position ia the campaign of lsS2. I he Journal would have pub lished this matter Saturday, but was un able to find Mr. N. B. Arnold in time. Judge Arnold said: "Yes, I remember very well the campaign of ISfei Over myer and I were law partners at that time, and while 1 was supporting Glick for governor and was aa anti-prohibitionist, Overmyer was a Republican and supported St. John. IDs first speech of the campaign was made at Meriden and I remember very well that the next day a lot of fellows from over there came into our office and were kicking to me about the rabid prohibition speech he made. We had been distributing a good many of our cards in the neighborhood and they came to me with their kicks because they knew I was an ami. As I remember it Dave only made three or four speeches in the campaign. I think he spoke at Meriden, Valley Falls, Oskaloosa and at Holton. "He presided over a meeting in North Topeka where Joe Ady made the princi pal speech and I remember that in tatt ing the chair, Dave told a story about an Indiana Democratic politician who was about to make a political speech when it commenced to rain. The speaker raised his hands and said: "Let it rain; more rain more corn; more corn more whisky; more whisky more Demo crats; thank God for the rain; let it rain." Postmaster A. J. Arnold was also seen by the reporter. Captam Arnold said: "I did not hear Overmyer titlk during the campaigner 1SS2, although I remem ber that he supported the Republican ticket I always knew him as an anti prohibitionist LIVED TOO HIGH.

Democrat, speaking of the football game between Doane college and the Athletic club, says: "The TopeHa boys entertained the Doane boys at the Athletic club rooms and made their stay in the capital city a very pleas ant one. Doane will long remember the splandid treatmeat at the liand of the Topeka It-am." COLONIZED IN TOPEKA. Kit mors Afloat That Fraudulent Populist Voter are Quartered Here. Republican politicians say the Popu lists are importing and colonizing voters in Topeka, and to discuss this a caucus will be held tonight at the office of Chas. Elliott, chairman of the county central committee. The colonizing is said to have been going on for thirty days at least The vacant house3 ia the suburbs, it is said, afford the opportunity for such a method of registration. Most of the vacant houses are owned by non-resident and large investment companies and no rent is required. It is said that transient farm laborers from the southern part of the state have been imported in large cumbers, and all the Coxey ites aud tramps are given a comfortable house un til after election if they will stay aud vote the Populist ticket straight Novem ber a The politicians of course have all heard a great deal about this matter, but few know anything more about it than mere heresay and often repeated rumors. There is one man in the city, however, who says he knows considerable about it and has oa various occasions seat boys down to the woods to talk to the tramps about it, and is said to know the exact location of a number of flourishing colon ies. He dees not want his name pub lished, at least until after the meeting tonight, bat he said to a Journal report er today: "I have been aware for nearly a month that all the tramps who drifted into town were steered to some vacant house in the bottoms or one of the additions where they could stay ss an inducement to reg ister and vote the Populist ticket. I have seat my boy ia company with other boys down to the woods around the City park to see how mny tramps there were around and to talk to them about the election. Most of them said they were going to live in houses down in Metsker's addition and vote for Lewelling. These houses are mostly owned by investment companies or are in some sort of litiga tion and there are a great many people living in such localities who never pay rent They merely move ia and no body ever knows they are there except the neighbors. The number of vacant houses in the bottoms and the additions around the outskirts of town afford the best kind of opportunity for this sort of corrupt practice. They have nearly all been registered, and I have seen many men in the registration office anybody with any police experience would know were tramps. Frank Herald's catch questions don't apply to them. This is the sequel to the efforts of the registra tion otrice to deny registration to all the Republican voters possible." Joseph Reed and Albert Barton say they have good reasons for believing that out-of-town talent has been imported into the Fifth ward for use in the elec tion. These stories have been reported to Judge Guthrie and to County Attorney Safford. It is the aim of the meeting tonight to make copies cf the registration books of the various wards and hunt up every man who is registered, and hunt out every person who is registered illegally. N EAR LI 8,0 OO N 0 W. The Xumber Kejjitered Has Almost Iteached That Figure. The registration books will close Fri day evening. At noon today the number of male voters whose names have been recorded was 7,Sdl. The largest day so far at the office was last Monday, when nearly 4U0 names were put oa the books. Yesterday the number was 2o0 and today it will be smaller. One of those who waited until todav was Receiver J. C, Wilson of the Santa Fe. He would probably not have regis tered at ali if a stalwart Republican had not waylaid him and induced him to go to the office. The Republican county central com mittee has takeu particular pains to look after the tardy voters. Cards were sent to every one even suspected of having changed his residence or neglecting to register, and many funny things hap pen in consequence. "I have received a notice to come here and register," said a boyish looking young man in the line of men waiting their turn to register. "We didn't send you any notice and you have already registered. Here is your name," replied the deputy. "I know I have registered, but I don't see why you send for me to come up again." T didn't send for you." "I have your notice right here ia my pocket," replied the young man. Then Charles E Gault, who is looking after the Republican registration, inter posed: "No, he did not send you any notice. I sent it to you, and if you are registered it is ail right" r4T jts C y jT y"" " Jr''Hr J? 'Jir"x W -Jr "J s $ 0 -THE P J $ $ v. Popular Low Price Gro c cr .
