A resul mission league is to be organ ized ;a Topeka to induce the legislature to again submit the prohibition amend ment to the people to be voted on at the next elec 'jU. It is ti e plan :o form a non-partisan etu'o association, i nd then organize sub ord.nate leagues ia every towuship in the state. The call for the meeting will be iucd in a few day. It is said that pruniiht'nt Kepubl.caus, as well as Detn i.i ra's an 1 Populists, are interested in the forfjiat ion uf t.uoii an urbanization, but those who will talk about it refuse to give their uuues.

Petitions will be bent out and circulated in every school district in the s'ate and the legislature will b met with a demand which may surprise them. T.ie question is entirely nun-partisan.

He said: "Wo will submit 100,000 names to the legislature when it convenes, asking for resubmission. It was a victory for resubmission when the Republican par ty left prohibition out of their platform. If the Republican legislature does not submit the question I feel sure that we can elect a Democratic governor on that issue. We did it once and we can do it again." Of course under ueath the whole agita tion is the well oevelope.i intention by some of the ma ia jers of it to bleed the big eastern brewers and distillers of ail they will stand "."or the good of the cause." i em - like this: "Ten thousand dollars from Mr. Pbst for resubmission literature," etc., me.y be looked for.

FRAIICHJARROTEtt The Barcelona Anarchist Sutlers the Death Penalty. He is Choked With the Iron Collar This Morning. WAS B II A YE AT FIRST. But Trembled With Fright as Time Drew Xear. Strangulation Stopped an An archist Sonir lie Started. Ra nt f.i.osa, Spain, Nov. 21. Jose Sal vador b ranch, one of the most desperate of anarchists, the man who threw the dynamite bomb at the Liceo theater, this city, on November 7, 16911, killing twenty persons and wounding fifty oth ers, was executed this morning by the garrote. Franch displayed the most bravado shouted "Down wish religion." and died almost with the words of an anarchists song upon his lips. Franch. who spent the last twenty-four hours of his life in the black draped chapel of the prison, according to the Spanish, custom, only slept about an hour during the night. The wife and little daughter of the condemned man con trary to general expectation were ad mitted to see him in the chapel. liut their tenderness and sympathy was ut terly thrown away upon the anarchist who also remained obdurate to the ad ministration of the priests who kept him company in the chapel. He ecolled at their supplications to prepare himself for death and laughed derisively at their references to a future life. The anarchist's wife made a last effort to soften his heart, but he roughly told her to go away, and she tearfully with drew, after kissing the condemned man. After his wife had left the chapel Franch coutinued to treat the priests with contempt, saying, among other things: "1 fooled you nicely. Hypocrisy is a new weapon which I have shown an archists how to us.'" At this point the judge and other offic ials entered the chapel and told Frauch to pjrepare for death. The adveut of these officials was soon followed by the appearance of the executioners, who as they began to dress the prisoner for the scaffold were continually insulted by the desperate man. French shrieked, "Do your miserable work. You are ouiy the tools of the bourgeois." The procession to the place of execu tion was then formed. Franch was sur rounded by soldiers and was accompanied by numbers of members of the society known as the Brothers of Good Death. French walked trembling to the scaffold which was erected in the large court yard of the prison. A number of spectators were admitted to thia enclosure and a large number of troops were present to keep specta tors a proper distance from thb scaffold, A double line of soldiers and mounted gendarmes performed thi3 duty. As the anarchists mounted the steps leading to the platform upon which was the garrote he shouted: "Down with ail relitrious! Vive I' anarchie." 'line executiouer seized him and as he struggled and cried they forced him into the chair bacit of which was the garrote. Franch was then strapped down to the seat and as this work was being performed he renewed his anarchistic cries and tried to sing an anarchistic hymn. But his false courage was evidently fast giving way, for he stopped iu the midst of his death song to implore his executioners to hurry their final preparations for st ath. The trembling prisoner's neck was then encircled by the fatal collar, the screw was swiftly applied and death was al most instantaneous. The whole affair re flected great credit upon the execution ers, for only about a minute and a half elapsed from the time Franch mounted the platform until he was pronounced dead. Tne military band which waa in at tendance then played, and the execu tioners moved away from the platform. The body of Franch, however, with the collar of the garrote around his neck, will remain exposed until sundown. It will bo viewed by large crowds of people, for the inhabitants of Barceloua and its neighborhood are flockiug to the prison from all parts iu order to obtain a glimpse of the body of the man who little more than a year ago caused such a sensation in this city and threw so many families into mourning. At sundown the society of the Broth ers of the Good Death will take posses sion of tiie body and convey it to the cemetery, hedging money in order to rjuse funds with which to have masses said for the repose of tho soul uf the an archist. Jose Salvador Franch was undoubtedly one of the most dangerous anarchists which has come under police notice of recent years. First, because generally known at the time of his arrest for con spiracy in the Barcelona outrage of No vember 7, 1693, by which over twenty people were killed and about fifty others seriously injured by one of two dynamite bombs thrown into the Eiceo theater at that place. Secret police ar rested Franch at Saragossa, Spain on January 1, lSU-i. upon suspicion of having been concerned in this outrage. Jose Salvador Franch was about 32 years of age, a native of Castelsarus, province of Ternal. He was tall, of fair complexion and came of a respectable family but his personal antecedents were bad. At the age of 14 he left home and came to Barcelona, where be did no reg ular work and gave himself up to the plots and designs of t lie anarchists, among whom he speedily became a leader. Soon after his capture he attempted suicide, once by shooting himself and again by poison. , SCI1AEFER WAS BEATEN. The "Wizard" Takes His Defeat Without Slalilnjj- Any Kxcuses. Chicago, Nov. 21. Jacob Schaefer has arrived iu Chicago and says the ouly rea son of his defeat in New York last week was that the "Napoleon" played the bet ter billiards. He claimed that he s not feeling well, but that he had no complaint whatever to make. He thought it rather tough, however, to be beaten with an average of 41, which is better than any previous winning average. lie reports that Ives' great run of 301 was made almost entirely on the lines and by position play, and that scarcely ten shots were made with the bails in the "auchor" position. All of Schaef er's large runs were made with out its aid and he thinks that under the present rules large runs are impossible, unless made by "line" playing and "open tatle" Liliiards. Another remarkable thing about the game is the fact that ouiy on, miscue was made during the six nights play, and that was made by Schaefer the first nitrht. He attributes this to the blue chalk, which he thinks is far superior to the German chaik which has previously beeu used He speaks highly of the new cushion, and a table will be set up, probably to day, at a hall on the North side, where he w ill immediately go into practice for the Chicago match, which commences at Central Music hall December 3. HARRISON AS COUNSEL. Tilt; ex-President Iaites an Argument 15e . fore a. Juilg-e Wliom lie Appointed. Clkvkland, O., Nov. 21. Ex -President Harrison drew a large crowd lo the United States court room to hear his ar gument iu the Toledo, Kansas City and bt Louia railway case. The ex-president represents the heirs of Hannibal Hamlin. The applicants claim thattheir securities, which amount to $r,Hjo,00 J are equivalent to a second mortgage and should be considered as a lieu on the company's property. It is in the nature of a coincidence that Geheral Harrison was engaged in a case in which the heirs of Hannibal Hamlin, vice-president under President Lincoln, were involved and that the hear ing was before Judge Ricks, whom Gen eral Harrison himself as president of the United States, appointed to the bench. A. R. U. TO FIGHT GOMIVERS The I'eilerution of Labor Meetinj; at Den ver l'roniises to le Lively. Ciiicaoo. Nov. 21. A special to the Post from Denver says that the annual convention of the American Federation of Labor to be heiil in this city in Decem ber will develop a bird light againstthe re-election of President Samuel G-uu-pers, Secretary McGuire of the Uuited Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, and general secretary, Chris Evans. The opposition is the result of the ac tion of the federation last summer in refusing to recommend sympathetic strikes in support of the American Railway union railroad strikes. To the "Triangle," (jumpers, -McGuire and Evans, is charged the responsibility for the federation's determination to keep its skirts clear of the A. R. U. imbroglio and to these three officials the A. R. U. and its sy mpathizers charge the defeat cf the great strike. It is said in their efforts to breed dis satisfaction against the present manage ment the A. R. U. have the covert sup port of some of the otiicials of the Knights of Labor. The radical social istic element which has long antagonized President Gompers wiii, it is said, aid in the attempt to secure his overthrow and will probably endeavor to elect to the presidency of the federation, Presi dent cliride of the United Mine Work ers of America.

The Shaffer will case is at an end and the will has been admitted to probate at the order of Judge Hazen of the district court reversing ttie decision of Judge El liott of the pn bate court. Howard b. Shaffer died last March and left an estate of nearly -f i o.ODU. By the terms of his will the widow, a second wife, was to receive all of the property except f 15 that he left to his daughter by a former marriage, Mrs. Oiive E. Spencer and her two children. Mrs. Spencer immediately contested the wiil on the grounds that her father was not iu mental coudition to intel ligently make a will at the time the will was made and that he had been unduly influenced by the wife. '1 here was a long hearing in the probate court, and Judge Elliott refused to pro bate the will. Mrs. Shaffer immediate ly appealed te case, and the district cauri has just handed down the decision; so the will stands as Mr. Shaffer in tended.

HOW THE HEAL WORKS G rover Fulls the Lever, Wall Street Holds the Bag. The Faults of Our Financial Svsteni Plainly Shown. THEY FEEL HURT. Administration Thought the Bankers Patriotic. But Those Gents On the Make Like Other People. Washington, Nov. 21. More gold went out of the treasury today. Added to that withdrawn during the past six days it made a total of about $ j,000,00J. Treas ury people are beginning to ask them selves of what profit will it be to sell bonds if the gold with which they are bought ia taken out of the treasury. And that is what is going on. It was expected that the treasury would lose some gold in this way when the bonds were offered, but no such raid as has begun was anticipated. There was plainly shown at the treasury today, for the lirst time, a feeling of uneasiness. The weakness and defects of ttie present financial system are being illustrated iu a very practical way. The same thing has been going on for a long time, but so gradually and gently as to attract little public attention. Now the process is plain to everybody. Legal tender and treasury notes are re deemable in gold on presentation, and when so redeemed must be paid out, only to be again presented in exchange for gold. The treasury has redeemed in gold, legal tender and treasury notes an ag gregate of Jf.liGO.OUO.UOU without reducing its gold liabilities one dollar. It is ad mitted by men of every shade of opinion that a sertaiu amount of gold held in tho treasury is necessary to maintain the several forms -f money at parity, and yet we are bound by a statutory system that makes it easy for any one to take gold from the treasury as rapidly as ac cu mmulated. The emergency that has been brought about by the distress that has long pre vailed in every department of business and commerce makes it apparent that legislation is needed to change existing conditions and to establish a system of finance that will guard tho treasury against the dangers that now beset it. Treasury otiicials are not pleased with the figures representing with drawals of tfold up to date. Most of these otiicials last week ex pressed the opinion that the New York bankers would supply the requisite gold from their private stock out of a desire to streugthen the credit of the govern ment and give an impetus to business. The showing thus far male by the New Yorkers does not seem to the officials here to be in line with this view. In estimat ing tiiat at least 30 per cent of the amount of the proposed bond issue would come out of the gold reserve, temporarily at least, the treasuryoflicials hardly looked to heavy drafts by New York bankers. They took "it for granted that the New York ers would be patriotic enough to furnish their own coin, and that the heavy drafts woull come from institutions in smaller cities, whose gold stocks were not very large. The developments of the last three days have compelled some of them to revise their opinions. "I see no reason," said one treasury Qfiicial, "why the bankers of New York should not buy at least $L10,U00,0U0 of these bonds and furnish the gold for them. Such an act would have a wonderful effect upon the country. I am aware that bankers have a way of consulting their own in terests first, but I cannot see how the banks could possibly benelit through trenching upon the govern ment's gold reserve, except by forcing gold to a premium, wdiich might follow upon failure to euceessfully place this issue of bonds." SilOCI-O KE IN' STATE'S I'KISOX. Says W. .J. liryan of tiie Clold Conspira tors at New York. Omaha, Neb, Nov. 21. Congressman Wm. J. Bryan addressed a crowded house last night at the First Methodist church under the auspices of "the Chautauqua college. His address was on bimetal lism. He was introduced by Major E. J. Hal ford, formerly Harrison's private sec retary. Iu "the course of his address he declar ed the gold bond issue a great outrage. "If the people," !Mr. Bryan said, "who havo beeu conspiring to force the gov ernment to issue bonds by drawing gold out of the treasury had been poor people, they would have been sent to the peni tentiary and be called felons. "But they are capitalists, and because they had idle funds wh.ch were not drawing any interest, they could and did force the government to issue bonds on which the people would be obliged to nay $ I5,t0(),u0l) of interest." After his address Mr. Bryan received a vote of thanks from the audience. Itotli Court Called.
