V. ,, - 10 CENTS A WEEK. VHAT A WOMAII SAYS Miss Will aid's Annual Address to the National W. C. T. LT. Growth of the Temperance and Purity Crusades Reviewed. VICTOItl'ES BY WOMEN. i Defeat of Tammany and Breck inridge Commended. Republican Made a Mistake by Defeating Woman Suffrage. Clevki.and, O., Nov. 1G. Under the national ba.cer "For God and Hume and Native Land," delegates representing every ttate in t le union, and a following of thousands of wearers of the white ritbon, assembled this morning in Music hall to open the twenty-lirst annual con vention of the A". C. T. U. The cene pret-ented in the hall just before the couention was called to order was a most animated one. The hum of conversation increased as the hour set lor the convention to be culled to order drew near, until it seemed to assume the proportion of a mighty roar. 'lue decoration of the big auditorium were artistic tnd profuse, with yellow and white predominating. The wall which formed a background for the platfori 1 was a mass of yellow and white bunt inc. The white is the rct'ugi. izi d co. or and yellow bears the ba me reunion t j the woman suffragists. The balconies are -iraped in while and yellow. '1 he upper one is intertwined with the red, whue and blue. Each bal cony post supports a statu or superinten dent's banner. The convention was called to order a few minutes be for lJ o'clock. Miss Wil lard rapped eh; rplyou the table in front of her. Iustai.tly the big assemblage came to order. "?even raps for love hope and grati tude," said M in Willard. Alter the rea iiig of the crusade psalm an 1 the singing of the fronts "Rock of Atrov' ''Weicoiae, Christian, Welcome," Miss Willard st j; pe 1 to the front of the platform, an 1 the lirst applause of the convention was given, and nandkerchiefs fluttered in ail parts of the house. Miss W illard thanked the convention for the applause, and then began the de livery of her annual address, a resume of which is as f j.ows: "The child cf the crusade has lived ut its eager youth aud stands oa the threshold of mature woaianliooj. On the 23d day of December, 1S73. the lirst praying baud of Ohio bridged with laithful feet the distance between church and dramshop. As if by magic similar processions began to move throughout tlu- West until in the lifty days of their unexampled faith and works the 1'iqli.r tratlic was banished from loj towm and villages. We date our origin from that red letter day set like another Christmas in the drear De cember to show that dawn is sure to fol low darkness. After review i: the progress of tem perance and thi SV. C. T. L". movement. Mis Willard continued: d'rotestauiisru has forged forward towards prohibition : the Cnristian voter is less purbiiuc, and begins to perceive that the paramount duty of the hour is that every man should feel that he must be a g-od citizen in order to be a good Christian. The pope's representative in this country has endorsed the right of any bishop to exclude from the sacra ments those wio belong to the liquor dealers' camp. Prohibition by law, by politics, by woiaau's ballot, is the watch word of ttie tenj erance army in all na tions. "The aggregate and systematic self respect of women u making itself felt agaiurt the dt basing inhibitions of her form, whether pictured or real before audiences of immoral men. 1 he vic tory gained ly Lady Henry Somerset, Mrs. Ormiston Chant and other white rib bon woman in bringing evidence to the London count couucil which caused it by a vote of It to 55'2 to refuse liquor and promenade hall licenses so thai promi nent places of amusement in London are osed, is perhaps the strongest proof nut a belter day has dawned, and de serves to rant beside the victory of women in Kentucky over the perjured Breckinridge aud of women in .New York over the uger of Tammany. "The "white life for two" that equal st andard of purity for men and women which alone can make home happy is a cardinal print if le of the while ribbon woinei, but they also believe that we shall always have a double standard of morals while we have a double standard of voting. v - "As a mat- 'eth, in his newspaper, bo is he an 1 i ; Cese days he reads what it is for the interest of great corporations to have him read. Opinion is manufac tured by the newspapers just as scientifi cally as cloth is woven by the loom. The editorial "We" should be abolished and every writer stand on his own merits. The strongest thing that reformers could do would bo tj buy space in the great papers of the country in which to put their ideas before the great humanity that teats its l.fe along the stony streets'. The word of tie hour was woman armed with the balio. f the protection of the home and the reinforcement of that al truistic minority of rneu who seek to em blazon on the statute book the principles of Brotherhood." Miss Willard made the personal state ment that any announcement indicating a lack of loya ty to the pledges assumed by the leaders is likely to be in the fjture as in the past, "faNe as a gambler's word and dece itful as a drunkard's joy." "1 have not turned Populist, though I hope that Populists and Prohibitionists may be agreed and walk together before long; I am a tsetot dter and" expect to be one always, i am opposed to lynching at any time at d any place, and whether jfirsoa lynched is black, trowa or white, I believe his taking off to be a crime against nature an 1 against God." Speaking of the labor question the president s.iid: "The call for compulsory arbitration resulting from the Pullman striite will, if it is but heeded, be worth to this country all that the strike cost financial ly and every othar way. Peace and ar bitration are the watchword of the white ribbon movement." '1 he position taken by the labor unions in deploring the dispositions of those in authority to increase and centralize the number of 8ta:e and federal troops, to multiply costly and medieval armories, thereby making more he ivy the burden of taxation which at the last must be borne by the producing classes, was heartily oniorse l. "As John Burns says: 'We must revo lutionize ly reform, not seek to reform by revolution.' We make a great ado about the anarchists, but the public house is the headquarters of the an archists and alcohol is the world's dyna mite. "It is probable that we htive not in this country a more skillful Fpf -cialist on the labor question than Mrs. Josephine Shaw Lowell of New York, chairman of Dr. Parkhurst's committee of women. bhe believes there is no remedy to be found for the workers except organized unity of action, and that labor and cat dial must combine iti adjusting their difficulties. E-oards of conciliation aud arbitration xvill, she thinks, supply the missing link for which we have looked so long. "We have had the Christianity of sen timent, of theology, of ecciesias-ticioui, but the present age has the happiness to witness the Christianity of conduct. We are learning that real religion i-i not the acceptance of any dogm.i, but t;ie recog nition of Christ's life in the heart and home, in society and the state. "A law is pending in Great Britain which ouirht to be duplicated here, by which industrial homes for "alcoholites" are to be established by the government. We are rapidly approaching the time when drunkenness will no longer be tol erated, for it is becoming understood that the danger involved in harboring the drunkard in the home is as great as if he were a lunatic. The state must relieve the liaic of this utrnderable l Milage, must relieve the druu 1; ard from t he overto wer ing temptation and must set. him at work to earn his own living. Every State W. C. T. U. is urged to petition the legislature for an appropriation to this end. "Half-way measures 1 lur the straight line of ethical perception and set back movements that can only be curried to fcuccess by out and out methods The W. C. T. U. is the old guard that never surrenders. It is not beguiled ly high license nor by tax; bv trie lo.va mulct law nor the South Caroliaa dispensary; bv non-partisanism nor the Scandinavian system. "The W. C. T. U. is forging forward with the years, along lias of preven tion, and except tne department of her edity there is none that goes nearer the root of the matter than the department of scientilic cookery. Mrs. Ole B ill and her coadjutors have laid broa 1 founda tions for this department. Until the iiappeustance' of cookery is changed to the circumstance of scientific diet we can hope for nothing helpful in this regard, aud 1 am free to say that I louk forward to the time when cooking shall be conducted as carefully as the most important chemical processes of the laboratory and shall be wholly in the hands of scientific experts. "The work of women is the most unique feature of the recnat gre.it elec tions. It is freely admitted that they had much to do with the do vnfail of the Tammany ring it was laagely a case of "the lady aud the tiger" w ith no doubt as to which came out -f the contest ahead. In Illinois the women voted by tens of thousands; in Colorado the Pro hibition party was raised from 1,700 at tli last election from seven to ten thous and; and it is the universal testimony that the presence of women at the polls led to a much larger vute by men and secured the best order ever known. "The Republican party clid itself dam age by assisting the Democrats to vote down the enfranchisement of women in Kansas, but illustrated its progressive tendencies by patting a plank in its plat form in favor of woman suilrage in the states of California, Idaho and Utah." In conclusion the president said: "I remember that no one subject puz zled or vexed me more in my youthful days than why it was that rneu could range the whole world at their will, aud then have the hoiae beside, while women did not have the world but the home only. I d.d not think this fair, and never have and never shull, and I think those early trooiings over the subject helped to d?terinine my voca tion, for I resolved to build in my life to help make the world so homelike that women could freely go out into it everywhere, side by sid with men, and also help to bring it about that men should share in larger measure than they have ever yet done in the hallowed min istrations of the tireside pml the cradle side, through which as I be! le ve t hey are to reach their highest and holiest develop ment. To save the holy land of home, e iiiiike ,,iir li.gii i-ro-ia :. Our lea.ler .luilali's imu heart Oil whulu our trust is stacd. In the course of her adiress Miss Wil lard referred to the a on- partisan W. C. T. U. and sent it greeting with ttie wish that the two great bodies may come to gether. This expression was endorsed by the convention. Again when Miss Willard spoke of the denouncement of Breckinridge and the dethronement of Tammany tiger, the applause was tremendous. Tne mete mention of Lady Henry Somerset evoked a storm of applause. After a vote of thanks to Miss Willard, Mrs. Alice Harris, national superinten dent of music, sang the verses, "Throw the life line," the audience joiuiiig in the chorus. NON-PAItTlS.VX W. C. T. V.

A Reported Scheme to Control the World's Silver Market. Millionaires to Form a Syndicate to Buv All Smelters. ROTHSCHILDS IX IT. Will Control Prices Regardless of Supply and Demand. Terms to be Dictated to All Sil ver Usiriic Countries. Denver, Xov. 16. The Rocky Moun tain News says that a syndicate is schem ing to obtain control of the silver market and d elate the price of the metal to all silver-usung countries. A conference was held in this city this week, it is said, at which were present Daniel Gugenheim, of New York; Messrs. Barton aud Nash, of Omaha; Mr. Ilanneur, of Salt Lake, and Mr. Allen, of the Philadelphia Smelting and liehning company at Pueblo, and representatives of the local smelters aud the leading silver-producing mine. Two reports are current as to the de tails of the proposed plan. One is that a syndicate bacKed by John D. Rocke feller aud the Rothschilds will obtain control of ail the smelters in the United States and Mexico and arbitrarily fix the price of silver regardless of the supply and demand. The proposition was made, so it is stated, that the smelters should be taken at an appraised valuation equiva lent to cost. This was to be paid in cash. Then each was to have a proportionate block of stock in the new deal. The Grant people, so it is stated, wanted their plant paid for at its real value, not its cost. This hitch has still to be adjusted. According to the other report the proposition is to have the silver of all the smelters handled through one man or agency. At present the Gugenheims have a certain house, the Grant people another and so on. There would be a saving to the smelt ers of probably a quarter of a cent an ounce, having it handled by one man in stead of half a Uozeu or a dozen, but the main object would be to prevent sudden slumps in the price of silver. 31 A X I A FOR LYXC II I X G . ovv an Ohio Ii.b Wants to lym-U a.

The Constitution contains the following editorial: "If all the reports about the attitude and statements of the treasury officials are true, the new issue of bonds advertis ed by the organs that assume to be the personal organs of the president, is like ly to create straiued relations between the head of the administration and the secretary of the treasury. "The situation is very peculiar. Ac cording to The New York Times, Mr. Cleveland, acting through L. C. Bene dict, the banker who has won notoriety by hanging on the president's coat tails in all sorts of weather, has gone forward and made preparations for the issue of bonds without consulting the head of the treasury. It is said on the best authority that Mr. Cleveland has had conferences with the leading bank ers of Wall street at which Mr. Carlisle was not present and to which he was not invited. The result is that w hile Wall street is busy making preparations for a bond issue of $10O,'.!UU,OO0, Mr. Carlisle and the officials at the treasury depart ment declare that they know nothing about it. "Bonds are to be issued, not because of any emergency that demands them, but simply and solely because of the fact that Wall street demands a safe and profitable investment for its idle funds. On account of the prostration of business and the paralysis of enterprise occas ioned by fastening upon our people the British gold staudard, the money of the country iias congested in Wall street and other linancial centers. This congestion of idle money represents the miseries and sufferings of the people, but, in stead of trying to relieve it, the ad ministration proposes to make it the excuse for affording the rich bankers aud the goid owners of the country a means of investing their surplus funds. To the miseries of the people is to ba added the increasd taxation represented by the intere.-t-bearing bonds. "if it be true in politics that the prin cipal is" responsible for the acts of the agent, how long will it take tne Demo cratic party to recover from the unpar alleled infamy of this surrender of the interests of the people to the greed and avarice of Wall street? "If the relations between the president and the putative head of the treasury are such as appearances indicate, we think it would be wise for Mr. Ctrlisle to design. There is no longer any reason why he should continue to invite the condemnation of those who have here tofore uiven him their coutideuce and their admiratiou. ASSAULTED FOUR. A Negro Enters Four Atchison Houses, and Outrage White Women. Atchison, Kas.. Xov. 16. Considera ble excitement which may end in a lynching has been caused here by the brutal acts of a negro this morning. Between 4:30 and 6:30 o'clock an unknown negro entered the homes of four highly respectable white ladies liv ing within four blocks of each other and outraged them. The fiend was evidently acquainted with the habits of the male folks, as at each place they were absent at the time. The victims are Mrs. Michael Cain, Miss Rosa Cain, Mrs. Grossman and Airs. Benjamin Poston. Searching parties are looking for the negro in every direction and most summary justice will surely be meted out to him if captured. K A N SAS 4 Ul) OESllI PS.

T V E TO GET THESENATE. The Republicans Expect to Win Over Six Populist 31embers of the Kansas Senate, if xot iwm: of them. Among' Them Will Be Senator Taylor. Some of the Gossip Relating to the Move. The very latest political story is that an effort is being made on the part of the Republicans to capture six Populist members of the state senate, which, if accomplished, will give them a majority iu both houses of the legislature, and enable the Republican party to Absolute ly control all legislation during the com ing session. It has been six years since the Repub licans have had full swing in the legisla ture aud they are now exceedingly anx ious to see how it would go once more. As it now stands, fifteen of the forty members of the senate are Republicans, and if six other ,-enators can be induced to act with the majority parry, the other Popiulist senators might 41s well stay at horn e. The day after election Senator Sterne said to a Statu Journal reporter that he had the name of one Populist senator who had agreed to acl with the Repub licans this winter, but he could not make his name public. It is now said that each Populist mem ber of the setiate is being visited by Re publican politicians and there are good prospects that the six senators will be found without difficulty who will Say aside their politics and vote with the Re publicans A Populist editor in the western part of the state has written an editorial this week advising all the Populist senalors to resign and let the Republicans have full swing, but this does not meet with the endorsement of- the Populist leaders, who have a plan of their own. It is understood that the Populist lead ers propose to instruct all their senators who are from districts which this fall went Republican to vote with the Re publicans whenever the legislation pro posed appears to be needful and proper. The senators will be instructed to make a fight for Populist principles, but after their plans have been killed in the com mittees, they will vote with the Repub licans explaining that, "While I um a Populist and opposed to the proposed legislation, the district I represent has, at the recent election given a Republi can majority, I will reuresent my con atituents and my vote may be recorded, aye, with the Republicans" It is understood that, two of the six members have already been secured. Senator Taylor of Wyandotte, has been fighting trie Populist administration for two years and he will vote with the Re publicans. Senator Reilly of Parsons, is a railroad man and as the railroad vote of the state was cast for the Republican ticket and as his district went Republican this fall it is understood he has already deter mined to represent his people and vote with the Republicans. The Republicans may be short one member as Senator John M. Price of Atchison is a very sick man and his friends are doubtful about his being able to bo in Topeka at all during the coming session. Senator Price's absence will not how ever interfere with the success of the plan to control all legislation if the six Populist senators are secured. W'ith Senator Price absent and six Populist senators voting with the Re publicans, the Republicans would still have a majority of one, and if one other member should drop out, making a tie on any question, the Lieutenant Gover nor, being a Republican, would cast the deciding vote and his party would still be iu control. McKINLKY ASK1.I) TO SPEAK. Wharton llarker Wants to Know His View On the Money Ouestiun. Philadelphia, Xov. 10 Wharton Barker has written an open letter to Gov ernor McKinley asking him to publicly state his views on the money question, and at the same time suggesting that the Republican campaign of lb'JO should be made "for American protection and American bi-metalism against British free trade and British gold monometal ism." Mr. Barker suggests a plan for the re establishment of silver in our coinage, which he believes is the only safe one for the United States to adopt without in ternational agreement. It is, first, that the United States shall admit silver bullion from American mines to coinage in its mints upon the payment by the owner of a seig niorage absorbing three-fourths of the difference between the market (Lon don) price of the bullion and its value when coined. Second, that silver shall be admitted only for coinage purposes at a seigniorage absorbing all the differ ences between the market (London) price and its value when coined. He concludes his letter as follows: "The Manufacturer, a journal pub lished every Saturday under the direction of the publication committee of the Manufacturers' club of Philadelphia, a most powerful and influential body has placed at the head of the editorial page this declaration of faith: "The sign of lbUO.

The lluildinj; Opened for l'ubllc Inspec tion Today. The doors of the new high school building were thrown open to the publio at 10 o'clock this morning and visitors were shown around the building by com mittees of teachers. There w as not an outpouring of visitors early in the day, hovvever, and the committees had but lit tle to do but look pretty and hold their hands. The weather was blamed and justly, no doubt, for the absence of guests, for people did not care to bravo the frigid air even for the purpose of making a tour of inspection of Topeka' s beautiful new high school. '1 he visitors were invited to bring books to contribute to the library, and the following had been left on t he library table up to 2 o'clock: A work on med ical science, donor unknown; "One Hun dred Years of Temperance," by Mrs. T. s-.
