Tracy, ex-secretary of the navy whoii here as one of the legal aivisori for the Ate lisou Protective com mittee, visited Topeka la 1S90. la cenveraation ith a State Journal reporter he said: 'I remember my visit to Topeka very well, I came with Presi dent Harrison ia the fall of 1890, the soldier's reunion was being held at the time and the presicent was warmly re ceived by the peoplu." In speaking' of national politics he eaid; "It ia yet to? early to be able to forecast the possibilities of the next presidential campaign. When the smoke of this fail's election has cleared away and we know just where we are, the pins for the next campaio will commence to show themselves. The indications are now that the next house will be very evenly divided. There are as yet I ut three men men tioned in any way at all prominently ia connection with the liepublican nomina tion for the presider cy. They are Alli son, Reed and McKinley. I am inclined to think as it now stands Allison is the most likely candidate on account of his location. lie is the only man mentioned who lives west of the Mississippi river, while Tom Heed lives almost too far east to be considered at all from a geographi cal standpoint, although he is being fre quently mentioned uul warmly endorsed iu some localities. . "From what I Lave heard and seen I am inclined to think at the present time, Allison would be th a choice of the east ern Republicans." "Is ex-President Harrison likely to be a candidate for the nomination?" asked the reporter. "As far as being- an active candidate, I am satisfied he will not, but should there be a showing of se.itiment pointing to wards him as the c.ioice of the party, it mitfht be otherwise, although I an not at all authorized 13 speak for him. I have not seen Pres ident Harrison since he was last ia New York, several months ago. "When we passed through Indianapo lis Monday, I inquired for him and learned that he had just that day left for another trip to New York, where he is at this time." General Tracey sid he could not re member having- met Major Morrill, al though he aupposel he did meet him while in congress. He expressed a great interest in the Kan ias election, and said it was "the general wish throughout the east that Kansas might be redeemed." General Tracey w.ts asking- some ques tions about Jerry Simpson's district, as to what part of the state it is in and how large it is, when te was called into a priv'Eite conference to give some legal aivice as to how tho protective commit tee might capture the Santa Fa annual election tomorrow.

When asked about the story, Mr. Heath said it was liction, that he had not seen any money from that source, but that if ho had such an amount as that he had no t doubt he would be able to place at least I a part of it Mr. Heath left this after- 1 noon for Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Mott's wide experience as Government Chemist for the Indian Depart ment, gave him exceptional opportunities to acquaint himself with the qualities and constituent parts of baking powders. He understands thoroughly the comparative value of every brand in the market, and has from time to time expressed his opinion thereof. On a recent careful re-examination and analysis he Ends ' Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder superior to all others in strength, purity, and efficiency. Dr. Mott writes : " New York, March zcth, 1S94. I find Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder to be superior to all others, for the following reasons : 1st. It liberates the greatest amount of leavening gas uid is consequently more efficient. 2nd. The ingredients used in its preparation are of the purest character. 3rd. Its keeping qualities are excellent. 4th. On account of the purity of the materials and their relative proportions, Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder must be considered the acme ef perfection as regards wholesomer ess and efHciencj, and I say this having in mind certificates I nave given several years ago respecting two ether baking powders. The reasons for the change in my op-."on. are based on the above fa:ts and the new method adopted o prevent your baking powder from caking and deteriora.t;-2 In strength. Henry A, M.QTJS. A . D., L.

"No, I do not, and there can te but cue result the election or the Republican candidate. Three candidates in the field in the Second district insures Republi can success." "What do you think of the position of Senator Martin in the campaign?" "I have but little t say about it Sena tor Martin is evidently anxious to defeat the Republicans." 1MKOBICED "MK. SCAMP." Mistake of tlie Chairman of a. I'opalifct Meeting: N o r t ll of Town. Ex-Sheriff John TI. Wilkerton came into Topeka today from his farm north of the city. He said he laid his scruples aside, and attended a Populist meeting this week at which John Seheack, can didate for representative In that district, was the principal speaker. "George Harris was made tb.9 chairman of the meeting," Mr. W ilknrson says, "and after he had made a few re marks it became evi dent he was not familiar with the order of the exercises, or acquainted with the orator of the evening-. He leaned over to another Populist on the platform, aad iuquired who was the speaker. He was told, and 31 r. Harris announced boldly, "Ladies and gentlemen, we will next be addressed by Mr. Scaiup, candidate for representative." It took several min utes for him to understand why the Re publicans who were present gave the speaker such a cordial welcome. Charged Vp to Jerry. H. P.

The show at the Grand opera house last nig-ht "4-11-44"' was not a partic ularly new one excepting in name, but it caught a good house that seemed to be rather top heavy if one could judge from the applause that dropped in great chunks into the parquette. There was ordinary singing-, rather antiquated but still funny jokes, and the regulation dances. Kinile Heusel and Rheta Mann seem to own the show a3 they have the most prominent parts and are the poorest peo ple iu the company.
