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

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

cooks, waiters, servants aad to hve
many backs bowed down under bur

of publicans aad sinners and he
never denied the charge. I a these days

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

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

It would be wise to look into causes of
want and misery instead of thi miscel

The Gentlemen Referred To toy Him Inter
viewed by a Journal" Beporter.
Judge N. B. 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
"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.

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
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
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.

Fe. He would probably not have regis

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

"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

I sent it to you, and if you are registered
it is ail right"
