Topska Druj.lst Could Not Supply
The Demand Saturday Evmilii
A large number of people wondered
why they could not secure Gavin's
Cough Balsam from some of the drug
gists Saturday evening when they called
for it. The fact is, the company could
not deliver the medicine as fast as the
druggists were selling it, the
Bale being much larger on
their balsam last week than was antici
pated. Only 2,000 bottlea were expected
to be sold at their special sale last week,
but it ran to over 3,000 bottles. One
druggist sold four dozen in less than
half an hour. Never was there such a
demand for any medicine. The drug
gists all had a good supply at 4 p m.
Saturday, and before closing at least one
half the druggists were entirely out. The
demand continued so strong on Sunday
that a large number of druggists had to
telephone for an immediate supply and
it was delivered to them on that day.
The company also made heavy sales in
other cities during the same week. Mr.
Gavitt informed a reporter that they have
authorized the druggists to sell our large
6Cc bottle of Cough Balsam at 25c, for
this week only. The price will be 50c
per bottle next week, the sama that they
are selling it at in other cities. This
company is doing a remarkable business
with their remedies. Their Cough Bal
sam is giving satisfaction in every case.
Borne of the most prominent reople in
city are receiving great benefits from
this Balsam.

Emporia, Jan. 8. Dave Williams, liv

aroused from his peaceful slumber about
1 o'clock a. m. by the house being full of
smoke and gas. On awakening he found
the bed clothes at the foot of the bed to
be ablaze. He hastily smothered this
fire and found that in three different
places in the dining room tires had been
kindled and were burning. He aroused
his neighbor on the south and they soon
had the conflagration extinguished.
That the tire was of incendiary origin
there can hardly be a doubt. The window
in the dining room was raised and sup
ported by a stick. The fire was first
started in a closet some ten feet away
from the window. In here was the entire
wardrobe of Mrs. Williams, who is at
present visiting her parents in Missouri.
The loss to Mr. and Mrs. Williams will
amount to several hun di d dollars, which
is covered by insurance.

Side by Side
On the Non-Partisan Committee
To Look After Enforcement of
the Prohibitory Law.
J. W. Gleed and I. 0. Pickering
on the Committee.
A Few Flowers Scattered on
Morrill's Tomb
In the Form of Resolutions of
Are to Be a Larger
Messrs. J. W. Gleed, A, H. Vance
and John W. Breidenthal. of Topeka, L
R. Elliott, of Manhattan, and L O. Picker
ing, of Olatbe, are the men who are to
select the "committee of 50" prominent
Kansas politicians on law enforcement
who are to prevent the overthrow of
prohibition in n.ansas.
The selection of this non-partisan com
mittee of five to name the "committee of
50" was the one act of the temperance
conference yesterday which prevented
the State Temperance union being
turned completely over into the fold of a
single political party.
The meeting called to discuss the
present situation relative to the enforce
ment of the prohibitory law but narrowly
escaped being a Republican caucus.
In calling this conference the manag
ers of the State Temperance union had
aimed to get some new life into the
organization by bringing together some
of the actual business man of the state
who are interested in prohibition. At
the afternoon session in the Y. M. C. A.
parlors there were present between
thirty and forty friends of temperance,
about one half of whom were preachers.
The meeting was addressed for over
an hour by "Tiger Bill'' (Col. W. P.
Campbell), who was there to secure an
endorsement of Attorney General Dawes
and Governor Morrill as officer;., who
were doing a good work in closing up
the saloons and joints of Wichita. Ti
ger Bill accomplished his purpose, as
is shown in the resolutions adopted by
the conference. Although Gov. Morrill
bus done more to injure the cause of
prohibition in Kansas, than any man
in the state, the resolutions endorsed
"William the Tiger" as he some
times calls himself, and as he was play
fully referred to by several of the speak
ers, was ably assisted in his work of
looking after the interest of the state ad
ministration in the conference by Mr. J.
G. Haskell, Mr. Simon Bolivar Bradford
and other;, while Mr. T. H. Bain and
Judge A H. Vance were mindful of the
fact that the cause of temperance owes a
great debt of gratitude to the Repub
lican party.
In his speech Tiger Bill denounced
the Kansas drug stores as joints and
saloons, and said he favored the estab
lishment of a state dispensary for the
sale of intoxicating liquors for the pur
poses named in the constitution. He
said: "The policy of prohibition is all
right, and I endorse every word Ed Hoch
says on that subject. Applause.
"Governor Morrill's recent interview
was taken as a back down among the
violators of the law at Wichita, who
imagined that the governor was simply
fixing a place for him to fall, but they
have now changed their minds, and have
given up Morrill now as completely as
they have Dawes a longtime ago."
In telling how much good work he
had done he said: "There is hardly a
saloon keeper in Wichita able to pay his
rent today.
"If Governor Morrill will appoint po
lice commissioners in Leavenworth and
Atchison favorable to the enforcement of
the law, the attorney general will look
up a Tiger Bill 'in tnose two towns
who will enforce the law." Mr. Tiger
Bill failed to explain why the governor
hadn't done this. He then advised the
conference not to quarrel with the gov
ernor but to co-operate with him and
give him sympathy and encouragement
in his efforts to enforce the law.
Judge J. F. Culver then said he had
had four years experience with a dispen
sary law and it was the worst law
imaginable to regulate the liquor traffic.
S. B. Bradford then appealed to the
conference not to condemn the officers
without cause and said the officers re
quired some public sentiment back of
them when they enforce the law. Mr.
Bradford seemed to think his appellate
court clerkship made him the chief de
fender of the governor before the con
ference. Dr. A. S. Embree said: "I believe in the
selection of good men for office. I have
been a Republican all my life. Before I
was old enough to vote 1 was a Republi
can, but 1 want to say if I am to continue
to cast my vote with that party it must
give us men for the official positions of
trust who are clean men and are in favor
of the enforcement of the prohibitory
law. The Republican party or the party
which is to get my vote in the future
must give us a man for governor who is
like Csesar's wife, absolutely without sus
picion on this question of prohibition."
A, H. Vance: "I h-.ve, too, been a Re
publican all my life, but I don't intend
to vote the ticket again unless the Re
publican party measures up to what it
lias been in the past. Let us here today
say what we are and not go away and
forget what wo said here and do just a3
though we, had not beeu here."
J. W. Gleed then urged the conference
to remember that it was the Republican
parly which had done everything for
prohibition and he urged the importance
of working within the old party and re
storing its pledges.
Rev. E. M. Randall of Leavenworth
who were Populists; and did not believe
all the virtue iu Kansas was confined to
the Republican party.
J. D. Woods of Halstead urged the
adoption of the Sedgwick county plan of
securing pledges of voters not to vote for
any man of any party for any office who
would not openly pledge himself to en
force the prohibitory law. After the
regular resolutions had been adopted this
plan was endorsed.
When the resolutions were reported to
the conference by the committee there
was nothing in them either for or against
Governor Morrill, but "Tiger Bill" was
not bashful and immediately made a
speech urging the importance ef endors
ing the good work done in Wichita, and
as ho gave his consent the new resolu
tion was so worded as to express a desire
te see the good work done in Wichita
extended to other cities Atchison and
Leavenworth for instance, where the
governor isn't doing any good work.
The conference was almost ready to
adjourn when Mr. J. W. Gleed arose and
remarked that he believed there were no
politicians present, and then proposed
the appointment of a committee of fifty
on law enforcement, to be made up, not
of preachers, but of well known citizens
of Kansas, including such men as Ed
tioch, J. K. Hudson, James A. Troutman,
Senator Parker, P. L Bonebrake and Ber
nard Kelly. He said he thought the ap
pointment of such a committee would
have a wholesome influence in the state.
Some one asked if he intended it to be
a Republican committtee.made up wholly
of Republicans. Mr. Gleed said that it
should be composed of well known men
who favor the enforcement of the law.
He said he hardly expected the appoint
ment of many Democrats on such a com
mittee. He said: "I will say in confi
dence, however, that in Kansas I expect
such a committee would be made up
mostly of Republicans."
Mr. Gleea's suggestion was decided to
be all right, and a "committee of fifty"
on law enforcement was authorized, and
and the chairman was instructed to ap
point a committee of five to name the
"committee of fifty."
The chairman without pausing named
on that committee J. W. Gleed, A. H.
Vance, L R Elliott, John W. Breiden
thal and I. O. Pickering. Three Repub
licans, one Populist and one party Pro
hibitionist. This committee rather star
tled those present, especially those who
bad been pleading and urging a com
mittee composed of Republicans.
The following are the resolutions
adopted by the conference:
'Whereas, We have assembled togeth
er as members of all political parties to
consult with regard to the condition of
the prohibitory law and its enforcement;
"Resolved, That we express our unal
terable adherence to the poiicy of prohi
bition, and we do this because it is right,
and fifteen years' experience has proven
that it is the only true policy with which
to handle the liquor traffic.
"Resolved, That we reccommned the
thorough organization of the temperance
people throughout the state by school
districts, township and county organiza
tions, and we hereby pledge ourselves to
promote such organizations in our re
spective communities, and recommend
that the State Temperance union or
ganize along this line forthwith.
"Resolved, That we, in consideration
of our suffrage, demand of each political
party an unequivocal and avowed sup
port of the prohibitory law and the nom
ination of candidates who will faithfully
execute this policy.
Resolved, That we urge upon all cit
izens the importance of rendering all
possible assistance to the officers of the
law in the discharge of their duties.
'Resolved, That we recommend the
annual meeting of the State Temperance
union to be called to meet at a date not
later than March 1.
"Resolved, That we hereby heartily in
dorse the action of the governor and at
torney general in their efforls to enforce
the law at Wichita, and also request that
the efforts of General Campbell be sus
tained by the executive officers and by
all good, loyal citizens, and we earnestly
request that like efforts be made for the
eniorcement of the prohibitory law in
Atchison, Leavenworth and Kansas City,
"Resolved, That we request of the exec
utive committee of this union to urge
upon the next legislature such an amend
ment to the metropolitan police law as
will secure the ample support of the police
department independently of the fines
and in a manner not to be defeated by
the unfriendliness of a municipality, and
giving the board of police comissloners
the same authority as the mayor or
sherriff in calling for the militia.
"Resolved, That the failure to enforce
the prohibitory law in some of the larger
cities of the state does not indicate a de
fect in the policy of constitutional and
legal prohibition, and does not suggest
the wisdom of resubmission."
The Populist Chalrmau Wants to Consider
Matters Before He Promises.
Chairman John W. Breidenthal of the
Populist state central committee was
not at the Prohibition conference yester
day, although he had been invited, and
when seen by a State Journal reporter
today had not been officially notined of
bis appointment on the committee to
select the "Committee of 50" ou law en
forcement. He said: "I have not been fully inform
ed as to what is expected of the mem
bers of that committee and do not know
what the ideas of the other members of
the committee are and I can't say wheth
er I will accept the place or not until I
kuow more about what is expected of
Mr. Breidenthal said he did not care to
be on the committee just to be a figure
Mr. J. W. Gleed, chairman of the com
mittee of live which is to select the
"committee of 50," said to a State
Journal reporter this afternoon.
"I have not yet made up my mind just
how the ''committee of 5o" ought to be
selected iiolitically. I expeci to call a
meeting of the committee of which I am
chairman, for some day next week and
we will then decide how the committee
shall be selected."

King and Woods, who will
Wrestle Tomorrow Night
Are Evenly Matched, Each
Weighing 200 Pounds.
Says He Wanted Cabanne to
Win the Race at St. Louis,
And Made a Proposition to
Murphy to Let Him Win.
Local sporting men ara looking for
ward to the wrestling match between
Jack King and Woods of Texas, which
takes place at Hamilton hall tomorrow
night with considerable eagerness, as the
men are much more evenly matched in
weight and size than were King and Gil
more, who met in Topeka last month.
In fact there is practically no differ
ence in the weight of King and the man
from the Lone Star state, each weighing
in the neighborhood of 200 pounds, but
Woods is said to be in much better con
dition than the Topeka man.
Jack King said today: "While I do not
feel positive of throwing Woods, I think
I stand a good show to do so or I would
not have made the match."
Besides the King-Woods match there
will be several boxing bouts tomorrow
night, and an effort is being made to
have two local light weight wrestlers test
their skill on the mat.
Jack King will undoubtedly have the
sympathy of the crowd with him this
time, and if he did not when he met Gil
more it was more owinir to the big ad
vantage he had over the New Yorker in
weight than from any other reason.
And Spalding- Will Not Sua the L. A. W.
It-ioins Hoard.
Chicago, Jan. 8. A G. Spalding, of
this city, has abandoned the idea of
bringing suit against the L. A. W. on
account of the Titus-Cabanne-Murphy
case. Chairman Gideon, of the racing
board, a few days since forwarded all the
evidence in the case to Mr. Spalding,
who went over it in company with Titus.
The latter admits that he did make a
proposition to Murphy to help him out
in allowing Cabanne to win the race at
St Louis, but in extenuation says his
only motive in making the suggestion
was a desire to see Cabanne win a race
in St, Louis before his own personal
Titus claims that that is where the
whole thing ended; in fact, the conversa
tion went no further, and th9 race was
never fixed, as the result proved.
Upon hearing this Mr. Spalding advis
ed Titus to throw himself on the mercy
of the Racing board, and if possible
have a personal talk with the members
of the Racing board, so that matter not
understood could be explained. To this
Titus assented, and will go in person be
fore the Racing board two days prior to
the National assembly at Baltimore.

Chicago, Jan. 8. Chris Von der Ahe
was in town to-day for the purpose of
picking up what base-ball talent he can
for the season of 1896. Chris is not san
guine of the outlook for his team finish
ing well up in the race, but says he is
willing to spend a barrel of money to
strengthen the aggregation. He looked
up President J. H. Hart, of the local
team, but did not meet with any eucour
agement from him, the latter station
that he was buying players, and had
none to sell. Von der Ahe is hopeful of
securing good talenr, however, and will
travel farther if unsuccessful in Chi
cago. Maher Loaves for Texas.

By its sworn detailed
statement of circulation for
the first half of the year
1895, it is shown to have a
circulation, during the six
months as stated, of a
Average 933-4
This is the greatest show
ing the State Journal has
ever been able to make for
a period of any six months
in its history.
This is a greater figure
than was reached by any
'"daily paper in Topeka for
the year 1894. The Ameri
j can Newspaper Directory,
issued in June, 1895, and
covering the year 1894, gives
the average daily circula
tion of the Topeka Daily
Capital for the year 1894, a3
only 8,744. These figures
were furnished by the pub
lishers of the Capital, to the
Directory, and are guaran
teed to be correct by a for
feit of $100, which will be
paid to any one disproving
their correctness.
The following figures, sub
Btaotiated by sworn state-
ments in detail, giving every

in 1893, 1894 and 1895, shows

The boast of the Topeka
Capital that it pays mora
postage than all other To
peka dailies combined, only
proves the meagerness of its
local circulation as com
pared with that of the Stats
Journal as no postage is
paid on any circulation
within Topeka or Shawneo,
The State Journal's local
circulation is far and away
ahead of the combined cir
culation of all the other
Topeka dailies.
The circulation of the
Topeka Daily State Jour
nal in the towns near by
and tributary to Topeka is
very large, as the evening
trains in various directions
