OTHER STATE NEWS.
K. U. Football Dates for Next
Fall Are Arranged.
Ottawa, June 8. Passengers who
came in on the "Emporia plug" report a
thrilling scene at Le Loup, in which a
woman and babe were placed in jeopar
dy of life, and saved through the quick
witted action and bravery of Brakeman
Mart Deen.
They heard a succession of thrilling
screams, and saw a woman holding a
babe and a man apparently being drag
ged by the cars along the platform.
The man, who wore the cap of a brake
man, was evidently endeavoring to re
lease the lady, whose garments had been
caught on the iron work; it was a despe
rate struggle, for several times the two
persons were almost dragged from their
feet to be rolled against the wheels; but
the plucky man held fast, and finally the
lady's dress skirts gave way at the waist
and she was dragged into security. A
boy had in the meantime sprung to the
rescue and caught the baby from its
mother's arms.
Conductor Scott had signaled his en
gineer to go ahead before the lady had
time to get off the steps. Her dress
caught on some projection, and but for
Brakeman Deen she would have been
whirled under the wheels.
NEXT FALL'S FOOT BALL.
Manager Mitchell Arranges Several Dates
for the K. U. Taam,
Lawrence, June 8. Mr. Rolla Mitch
ell, manager of the Kansas university
foot ball team, announces that a game
has been arranged with the Illinois uni
versity team for two weeks prior to the
regular season on McCook field in this
city. Thi3 will bring the game on Octo
ber 19. The game that has beeu played
for the past two years with Michigan uni
versity team could not be arranged this
year because of the trip east the Ann
Arbor boys have arranged to make. In its
place, however, a game will be arranged
to take place at Kansas City between
Kansas university and either the Minne
sota or Chicago university team. Both
are willing to play and the game will be
fixed. The 'Varsity team has also re
ceived an offer from the Leland Stanford
university team to visit California at
Christmas time, for a couple of games,
and this trip with a stay of a week will
also probably be arranged.
CATTLE THIEVES AT EDKEKA.
They Steal Six tern Heud and Ship Them to
Kansas City.
Eureka, June 8. The arrest and im
prisonment here of Dave Herrick and F.
II, Whittleby for cattle Stealing will, it is
believed, be the means of breaking up a
gang which has been operating in this
county for some time and giving annoy
ance. Whittleby and Herrick took sixteen
head of cattle out of the "Lone Tree"
pasture of Hardy & Ravenswood of this
county last Sunday night, drove them to
Olpe and loaded them Monday night and
shipped them to Kansas City.
J. LL Lamps, a former resident of
Eureka, who is a salesman, suspected
something was wrong and telegraphed
to ( aptain Hardy asking about it.
Before they found out whether any
cattle were missing Whittleby had been
taken into custody at Kansas City and
confessed. He implicated Herrick and
a man named Harrington. Herrick was
arrested. Harrington is supposed to be
fictitious.
The cattle were shipped back from
Kansas City to Hamilton.
Killed Uy Ilioken "Wheel.
Independence, June 8. W. M. Brown,
one of the workmen at the Sad Iron fac
tory, was instally killed while at work
at a polishing wheel about two feet in
diameter, covered with leather, and re
volving at the rate of about 2,500 evolu
tions per minute. The leather covering
by some means parted, and the loose end
struck him with terrific force over the
heart In fact, so rapid were the revo
lutions, that he was struck a number of
times before he could fall.
Attempt at Train Wrecking.
Atchison, June 8. An attempt was
made yesterday by unknown parties to
wreck the is. & &i. passenger train which
leaves Atchison for the nitftli shortly be
fore 12 o'clock. A big tie was placed
across the rails in a place where it would
not have been observed until the train
was upon it, about five miles north of
Atchison. Henry Meier, a farmer, hap
pened to be passing, observed it and
took it off the track.
Bu Wichita 21,000 or 27,000?
Wichita, June 8. The postoffice de
partment has made quite a revelation
concerning the population of Wichita.
Their figures indicate, that the city has at
least 27,500 people, although the figures
given by Enumerator Caldwell do not go
that far by a long way. The figures of
the entire population of the city as re
turned by Mr. Caldwell are 21,700. The
figures of the enumerator made by the
postoffice department for adults alone are
19,336.
Pratt Bank Cathter Drowned.
Pratt, June 8. Gust Carlander, cash
ier of the First National bank at this
place, was drowned at Waldack's grove
late Thursday. He went in bathing and
was taken with the cramps. Judge J. C.
Ellis dived to the bottom of the lake and
brought up the body, but too late to re
vive him.
Rev. J. H. Hopkins to Leave Atchison.
Atchison, June 8. Rev. John Henry
Hopkins will leave Atchison. The re
port is that he has accepted a call to the
pastorate of Christ Episcopal church,

THE GREAT RELAY RACE.
Time Between Xew York and Chicago Six
Hours and forty-Seven Minutes.
New York, June 8 The great exhi
bition of long distance riding in the his
tory of cycling between Chicago and
this city terminated at 1:56 o'clock this
morning at the junction of Sixteenth
street and the Boulevard.
The great race, which required a great
deal of careful preparation, started from
Chicago Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock
and was to cover 1,000 miles intervening
between that city and New York. The
record has been broken and the distance
covered by six hours and forty-seven
miqutes better time.
In organizing this relay, a departure
was made by a distinction in the colors
worn by the riders. The military was
represented by blue and postal .service by
red.
Mr. McMad, Postmaster Dayton's pri
vate secretary, received the message by
the red forwarded by Postmaster Hesing
of Chicago, and represented the post
office department, and 47 minutes later
Gen. Miles received from the blue the
message from Gen. Merritt
It all it required over 500 riders and
substitutes to carry the messages.

FORGED CALDWELL'S NAME
A Leavenworth Colored Man Tries to
Bunco the Tonanoxie Bank.
Leavenworth, June 8. Geo. Lewis,
the notorious forger, has not yet been
arrested, but the officers of the law are
on his trail. He tried to bunco the Ton
ganoxie bank out of $ 300, as the follow
ing will show:
Leavenworth, Kas., June 4, 1895.
Cashier Tonganoxie State Bank, Tonganoxie.
Kansas.
My Dear Sir: I have just mailed to
Mr. David J. Conley my personal check
No, 20, on the Manufacturers' National
bank of this city for $300, which 1 wish
you would be kind enough to cash when
he presents it to your bank. I notify you
of this issue, as he has an invalid wife,
and had to sell me a piece of property he
owned in this city to raise the money to
send her away for treatment, and as he is
a stranger in your city I want to remove
any cause that might make him enter
tain any delay in getting his money. He
is a colored man. Yours very truly,
Alexander Caldwell,
Lewis no doubt became familiar with
Mr. Caldwell's handwriting while in the
Kansas penitentiary, as Mr. Caldwell had
his wagon works there, and the forgery
of the name would deceive any one.
The cook should examine carefully
the label of the baking powder and see
that she is not imposed upon. If the
grocer sends anything but the Royal,
send it back, as one cook did five times
until she got the RoyaL The only safe
way is for the cook to have the finest
things to work with, and the Royal is not
only the finest but the most economical
to use because it goes so much further.
WILL PUSH THE FIGHT.
A National Free Silver Democratic Con
vention "Will Be Called.
Springfield, 111., June 8. It is no
longer a secret that the Illinois silver
ites, under the leadership of Governor
Altgeld and William II. Hinrichsen, in
tend to cut loose from the present na
tional Democratic organization and form
a new Democratic free silver party. The
plans were laid months ago, and so far
everything has worked smoothly in the
interests of the managers of the new de
parture. The echoes of the state conven
tion had scarcely died away when Chair
man Hinrichsen declared that the state
committee would now start in on the
national work.
"If the national committee refuses to
call a national Democratic convention,"
Mr. Hinrichsen said, "we shall call on the
state committees of the various states to
act with the Illinois committee in calling
such a convention. The result of such a
national conference will be the same as
that of our state convention. It will unify
the party and leave the gold men in a
hopeless minority."
This bold utterance is backed up by
Governor Altgeld, who said that the call
ing of a national convention was the
original purpose of the men who called
the Illinois silver convention.
"I was the originator, or rather, one of
the originators, of the national conven
tion scheme," the governor said, "and I
did everything in my power to secure its
adoption. WTe are not content with sim
ply expressing our convictions. We are
going to fight for them and push the
fight all along the line."
The national committee will be re
quested to call a national convention, but
it is not dreamed that it will accede to
the request Neither Chairman Hinrich
sen nor Governor Altgeld expects it to.
Then Mr. Hinrichsen will ask the various
state committees to join with
him in calling such a convention.
Wherover a state committee re
fuses to join the call the free
silver Democrats of that state will be re
quested to issue a call for a state conven
tion to select delegates to the national
convention. In other words it is the
programme to ignore the national com
mittee and all state committees that do
not fall in line and call a national silver
convention, which is expected to reor
ganize the party and take the reins of
organization in its own hands. This,
of course, means the disruption of the
Democratic party. The leaders in the
movement have now gone too .far to re
treat. Twenty-four of the national commit
teemen are opposed to the free coinage
idea, twenty-two favor free silver, while
the views of four are not known.
BRITISH INDANGER.
Tribesmen of Chitral Threaten To Take
English Troops.
Calcutta, June 8 Dispatches re
ceived here from Simla say that the
tribesmen of Chitral are again threaten
ing to take the British troops. A body
of 500 tribesmen is collected in the
vicinity of Dargai and the British are
preparing for an attack.
Later dispatches from Simla say that
a body of Shirannis has surprised a vil
lage twenty miles from Fort Sandeman
in the Zhobio country and killed a Brit
ish lieutenant and seven men.

IDA B. WELLS IN TOWN.
The Agitator Against Lynching of Black
Men Visits Topeka.
Perhaps the one colored woman on
earth who has a world wide reputation
as a writer, lecturer and reformer is Ida
B. Wells, who is in Topeka this after
noon to lecture at the A. M. E. church at
Seventh and Topeka avenue this even
ing. Her specialty is agitation against
lynch law in the south and she is mak
ing a bold fight.
Miss Wells is of medium stature. Her
eyes are keen and black and her dress
tasty. She appears to be a thoroughly
educated woman, speaks with precision
and decision, is never at a loss tor a
word and is always' sure of her utter
ances. Withal she is a very agreeble
young colored woman young because
she does not look over twenty-six, though
she admits she is thirty-two.
A Journal reporter found her at the
home of Nick Childs on Quincy street,
where several of the most prominent
colored people of the city have met her
today.
She was willing to talk on the subject
in which she is so deeply interested.
"It ts my life work," she 6aid, "and I
have studied it well. The facts have been
so distorted that the people in the north
and elsewhere do not realize the extent
of the lynchings in the south. Since
1882 2.000 colored people have been
lynched in the south. The number has
steadily increased since the war until
in 1894 it reached 200; four of
those were women and three of them
were burned. People in the north are
led by the Associated Press reports, and
the telegraph, which of course are own
ed in the south by the people of the
south, that all these lynchings are to ex
piate atrocious crimes on women and
children. 1 have indisputable evidence
to prove that that is not so.
"1 think a verv good medium is the
negro's behavior in the south during the
war. I he white men were at the front
fighting to keep the colored man in slav
ery. The very colored man he sought
to" injure was left at home to take care of
the white man s wife and children, and
there was not one breach of trust, not
one.
"I was forced into this work by the
lynching of three of my personal friends
at Memphis, Tenn., on the 9th of May,
1892. I had quit teaching school then,
and had established iu successful opera
tion a newspaper which we called the
Free Speech.
"The three men lynched were respect
ed grocerymen. Sneak thieves had
made an attempt on their property and
they resented it by firing on them. It
was time to teach the niggers a lesson,
the white men said, and they took the
colored men from the jail and lynched
them. The paper referred to them as
three colored toughs. In the next issue
of my paper I printed an editorial de
nouncing the lynchers and the
officers that allowed it. The
daily papers advised that I be lynched
and a committee waited on me, but I
had gone to New York. They sacked
the office, chased my business manager
out of the city, and I was informed that
if I came back I weuld certainly be
lynched. as the trains were being
watched. I have not been back, but I
immediately began my crusade against
lynching in the south and I shall con
tinue it Anti-lynching club9 are being
formed all over the United States where
I have been for the purpose of educat
ing the people on the subject. I have
confidence enough in the American peo
ple to believe that if they are once ac
quainted with the exact facts the prac
tice will be stamped out.
"I could tell you of hundreds of lynch
ings that have occurred and the facts
distorted that I know all about myself,
having visited the scenes and investigat
ed them thoroughly."
Miss Wells has issued several books
the latest being "A Red Record, Tabulat
ed Statistics of Lynchings and Their Al
leged Causes in the United States."
She has edited several papers and has
been employed to do special writing
along the line of her work for many of
the leading newspapers of the world.
She has lectured through Europe and
was received by the queen of England.
"I am occasionally threatened from
Memphis to this day with death if I do
not cease my work against lynching,"
she said
"Dees it scare you any?" asked the
reporter.
Miss Wells closed her eyes for a mo
ment and smiled; "I haven't quit yet,"
she said.
The accompanying picture is good of
her.

no sign of the breaking of the great
drouth in the winter wheat states.
The Modern Miller publishes a
crop estimate of 193 million winter
wheat and says Egypt will again have to
import corn. Reports from California
say the crop has been damaged 3) per
cent by hot winds. Everything indicates
a bullish government report on Mouday,
should this occur the bears will have lost
the last prop on which they have been
resting. It must be evident to everyone
that the crop has run down materially
siuce the last estimates were made and it
is still losing ground. Primary receipts
for the week were 475.0J0 less and ship
ment 650,000 nioro than the previous
week indication, a decrease of three mil
lion in the visible. The northwest is ex
pected to decrease one million.
Corn and oats closes strong and are ap
parently going higher." The weather is
against growing crops and receipts of
corn are falling off materially. The de
mand is also improving.
Provisions are as dull as ever, nothing
has moved them out of their rut
