Mr. Stryker Says Martin Can
Not Be Beaten. '
Prominent Republicans Think
He Will Bo Nominated.
Especially Strong With Kansans
Because They Know Him.
All Think Coiiyention Should
Go on Record.
Platform Should Be Pronounced
Against Trusts.
Who will satisfy Kansans best for vice
president on the Republican ticket and
lio y.iu consider it wise for the Republi
can party to ro on record against
trusts? were questions put to several
prominent Republicans this morning
and the universal answer was that
Dolliver was the Kansans' choice for
the vice president's chair.
They differed somewhat on the trust
question when it came to djetail but all
ugrreed that the party should declare
iii;ainst trusts.
Senator John T. Chaney said: "I be
lieve that Kansas has but one choice
for vice president and that is Dolliver.
Livorv Bern
Telephone 43. 703 Jackson St.
He is a western man and is well known
and l:ked in Kansas. During the time
that he was sent here by the national
committee to make speeches he made
many friends and proved himself to be
a strong reasoner and an orator. Of
course, we had all read of him before
but his comins to the state made ua
all take more interest in him.
"The trust question is one that we
do not know all about and it is hard to
tell exactly how far the party will go
in regard, to it but it certainly will
adopt a plank declaring against trusts
and no matter how far they go with It
the Democratic party will go still fur
ther." H. C. Safford did not. hesitate an in
stant before replying. He said: "Dolliver
is the man for us and the party should
not only go on record as being- against
trusts but it should do something and
do it hard. It is the proper thing to do
and I believe they will do it.
A. W. Dana said: "Roosevelt is a very
popular man in .the west and partic
ularly so in Kansas. He made many
friends on his trip through the state
by his speeches and he seems to have
the western spirit. As he is not a can
didate I think the majority of Kansans
favor Mr. Dolliver who has spoken here
several times both for the lecture
bureau and on the stump. He made
many personal friends here and of
course a personal acquaintance cuts a
ffreat figure in politics. He is a power
and it would be difficult to make a bet
ter choice. i
"In reerard to the trusts I believe that
something should be done but I do not
think that they should Be exterminated.
A wise and reasonable control of the
trusts is the popular thing arid it must
be done. I do not think the party should
go to extremes in the matter and I do
not believe it will. I believe that the
Republicans can elect their ticket this
fall even if they do not mention trusts
in their platform, but it would be due
to the great popularity of McKinley and
the successful management of the ad
ministration. However, I believe it
would mean defeat four years later."
T. F. Doran said: "It seems to me
that Mr. Dolliver is the man the Kan
sans want for vice president. In fact,
I do not remember having heard much
talk of anyone else. He is a strong,
able man, and is from the west and that
should be sufficient to give him the
support of the Kansans.
"In regard to the trusts, I believe
that the pa.rty should take a stand
against them although I do not believe
in radical action in the matter. Con
sidering the clamor against trusts it is
the wise thing to go on record as
against them."

Topeka Men Go to Philadelphia to
Compete For Prizes.
The Topeka Turn Verein class leaves
this evening at 5 o'clock in a special
car over the Santa Fe. They go to at
tend the national Turnfest to be held in
Philadelphia from June 19 to 26.
The car is gaily decorated with
streamers and signs in colors running
the whole length of the-car on each side
reading, "Topeka Turn Verein.
The party will first go to Chicago. A
stop of only a few houra will be made.
The journey eastward will then be re
sumed over the Michigan Central. A
stop of one day will be made at Niagara
Falls. A short stop will also be made
at Buffalo. From there they go direct
to Philadelphia.
At the conclusion of the Turnfest the
party will visit some of the large east
ern cities. Considerable time will be
spent in the capital city, Washington.
From there they will go to New York
city. A visit will be made to the fa
mous Coney Island. The return trip will
be ma de direct to Chicago. Upon reach
ing Chicago part of the class will come
directly home. The others will spend
considerable time in seeing the city and
mo.Kmg excursions on the lake to Mil
waukee. The Turnfest at Philadelphia promises
to be a huge affair. Classes from 160
cities will be there. That means an at
tendance of about 5.000. The Topeka
class will contest in the followingevents:
Fast rope climbing, hop, step and a
jump, an exercise on three long "horses"
and the wand exercise.
In :he indidual contests Topeka will
be represented by Tom Miller, Phillip
Lesser, Fred Klinge and Frank Gutsch.

If Democrats Insist There .Will

William Stryker, ex-state superin
tendent, who is conducting the "Wa
baunsee county institute, spent the day
in Topeka visiting his political friends.
Mr. Stryker is one of David Martin's
warmest supporters and is confident
that Mr. Martin will be the nominee of
the fuslonists for associate justice. .
"I have not one word to say aga,lnst
Mr. Cannon or any other man who seeks
the nomination as a Democrat," said
Mr. Stryker, "but things are getting in
to such shape that whoever makes a
fight against Martin will have to face
the charge that he is the tool of the
railroads or at least the railroad candi
date brought forward under a Demo
cratic disguise.
"The Democratic railroad managers
can not organize against the Martin
forces successfully. The Populists and
Democrats of Kansas are too shrewd to
be captured by a railroad scheme
planned by the Republican and Demo
cratic railroad officials jointly.. Mr. Orr
f Atchison who is making the fight
gainst Martin is said to have the back
ing of the Republican railroad officials.
and so the plans are made to overthrow
"Martin will be the nominee for as
sociate justice," continued Mr. Stryker.
If the Democrats will not accept that
then there will be a split. But, the time
has not come in the fusion politics of the
state when the Republicans aided and
abetted by Democrats who really be
long In the Republican party, can fur
nish the candidates- for places on the
supreme court.
Mr. Stryker says the Populists are for
Judge Martin and that Jim Orr s state
ment, later shouldered by Mack Love,
to the effect that the railroads will
spend $50,000 to defeat Martin will as
sure his nomination. "Such things as
this establish a man's reputation," said
Mr. Stryker. "The fact that the rail
roads are against Martin makes him. Tit

Philadelphia, June 16. "Don"t you
think it about time to launch the Elk
ins vice presidential boom?" asked
Senator Scott of West Virginia of a
iciiuw iiiuiuer oi me national com
mittee today, and then continued by
expressing his own opinion.
"For myself," he said, "I consider the
time quite ripe, and I have wired our
delegation to get an Elkins banner,
string it to their car and come in with
an Eikins shut. I think they will do
this, and probably you will see the
boom well floated when they get here
tomorrow. And do you know, the con
vention co-.-.ld not do better than to
take my colleague in the senate for
this important place. I think he would
make a strong candidate, and an ex

"Will Not Establish Headquarters Till
They Hear From Chicago.
The removal of the Republican head-
ouartera to the new rooms either on
Kansas avenue or on Seventh street,
east, is being delayed until the estab
lishment of the branch of the national
committee headquarters at Chicago.
This branch is in the hands of the
national congressional committee, and
has charge of the work of campaigning
In the western states.
From the Chicago headquarters the
assignment of speakers for Kansas will
be made, and until that work is under
way the state committee can make no
definite plans as to the future.
It was the expectation that the na
tional committee would begin business
in Chicago today, but no announcement
to that effect having been made it is
the supposition among the Kansas Re
publican managers that the opening
will now be delayed until after the na
tional convention next week.
At that time, or at such time as these
headauarters are established in Chi
cago, the Kansas committee head
quarters will begin active work of
planning for the campaign. The out
lines of routes foi speakers 'will be de
termined; the dates and places to which
the speakers will be sent; the polling
of precincts, and other detail work will
begin In earnest.
The active speaking and "shelling the
woods will begin in fceDtember, and
by that time the Kansas committee
hopes to have all of the preliminary
work completed so that the campaign
may be carried on unceasingly in every
corner of the state until election day.
It is practically assured that there
will be no executive committee in con
nection with the Republican state com
mittee s work during this campaign.
the whole committee instead holding
monthly meetings, the work which has
been generally in the hands of an ex
ecutive committee being disposed of
by the general committee.
The committee will probably meet
in Topeka Saturday evening, June 30
although the date has not been fixed
by Chairman Albaugh. He said today:
"The committee will prooably meet
July 10. The last meeting was May
and it is the plan to have the next
meeting one month from that time, but
some of the members of the committee
arc east and will not return until after
July 1."
"What has been decided concerning
the executive committee?"
"No decision has been made," replied
Mr. Albaugh. "The matter will be dis
posed of by the committee at its next
regular meeting. However, it is my
opinion, personally only, that there will
be no executive committee this year.
The members of the committee who
have expressed themselves and also the
candidates believe that the state com

Appears to Have the Backing of the
Philadelphia, June 16. Speculation,
gossip and informal conferences among
national committeemen and other lead
ing Republicans who are here have
failed to indicate a crystallization of
sentiment around any individual for the
vice presidential nomination. Neither
Senator Hanna nor those who are close
to him give any intimation that the
administration has a choice. The num
ber of delegates who will vote for any
man that the administration favors
seems to accentuate the general im
pression that the nominee will be the
man most satisfactory to the president.
"If you would take us into your con
fidence on this vice presidential matter
it would simplify the situation greatly
and give us an opportunity to do what
the president would like, said a prom
inent Republican to Senator Hanna,
and the reply he made was: "You know
all that I know about it."
Senator Hanna's only observation on
the situation was that until the delega
tions arrived and there was an oppor
tunity fcr them to consult no conclusion
could be reached.
Senator Piatt's talk of Odell of New
"Vork, caused a little nutter here, and
Dolliver stock took an upward turn
about the same time, the cause being
the impression that in case Odell should
be pressed by New Tork, there would
be a concentration on the Iowa con
gressman by those who do not favor the
New Yorker.
The candidacy of Lieutenant Gover
nor Woodruff of New York is, still being
kept in evidence by his friends, but ap
parently without, any backing from the
Republican managers and with the dis
tinct disapproval of Senator Hanna.
- When questioned regarding the state
ment made by Senator Hanna to the ef
fect that Mr. "Woodruff was not a sat
isfactory candidate for the vice presi
dency, the latter said:
'Had I any intimation from the ad
ministration that my candidacy was not
desirable I would not have allowed my
friends to support me to the extent they
Mr. Woodruff w-as asked if he would
continue a candidate in the event of the
New York delegation failing to support
him, he replied: "There will be no such
The position of Secretary Long causes
considerable comment and it is being
freely asked why the Long candidacy
should proceed so far unless it has the
tacit consent of the president. The fact
that Long is a member of McKinley's
cabinet gives rise to a widespread be
lief that the secretary will finally re
ceive the support of the administration;
it such is the case, however, it is being
carefully kept from view.
Delegate Payne of the Iowa delega
tion has arrived, he btoueht renewed
assurances from Senator Allison that he
could not and would not be a candidate
for vice, president. Mr. Payne stated
that Mr. Allison told him that he not
only would not be a candidate but that
if nominated he would decline. "If they
should place me in nomination." the
senator is represented as having said,
"I will decline and I will find means of
letting the delegates know my position
before they leave the hall."
Senator Fairbanks, of Indiana, has
been besieged by those who were anx
ious to know if he was a candidate for
vice president. While he would not be
interviewed, he did deny any aspira
tions for the office.
The position of Senator Fairbanks,
however, is well known. He does not
want the vice presidency. He likes a
senatorial career and has every pros
pect. of remaining in the senate as long
as his party remains in power in Indi
ana. However, there are a number of
Republican leaders who think it possi
ble that a contingency may arise where
it will be necessary to nominate Sena
tor Fairbanks. In such an event it is
believed by those who know the sena
tor's party loyalty, that he would ac
cept. The fact that the name of Bartlett
Tripp will be presented to the conven
tion for vice president is not allowed to
be hidden by the energetic men of the
Pacific coast who are in charge of his
interests. Just now they consist of Na
tional Committeemen Ashton of Wash
ington and Steele of Oregon. They will
be reinforced when the delegations
from Oregon and Washington arrive.
Mr. Ashton had an interview with Sen
ator Hanna and told him that the nom
ination of Tripp would mean the re
tention of a million and a half of votes
known as gold standard Democrats;
who would appreciate the compliment
paid to them by naming a former
staunch Cleveland Democrat, although
he has left that party and joined the
Republicans on tne money and expan
sion issues. Mr. Ashton stays that

Ethelbert the Big Favorite at
Skeepshead Bay Race.
New York, June IS. Not since the
suburban was flflrst run at the track of
the Coney Island Jockey club at
Sheepshead Bay has there been such a
fine field of horses engaged as will go to
the post today for the classic event. All
of the best horses in training are enter
ed, and the contest bids fair to be
record breaker, so that the winner is
likely to walk back to the judge's stand
and receive something better than the
2:05 which greeted Salvatedor ten years
ago when he won his match with Tenny,
his great rival. The list of entries,
weights and Jockeys is as follows:
Ethelbert, 130, Maher.
Imp, 128, O'Conner.
Jean Beraud, 127, Turner.
Kinley Mac, 125, McCue.

Down on the track early today these
were scores of people out to watch ex
ercising of the candidates, and when all
had been sent over the fast track, the
discussion over the chances of the lot
was long and earnest.
The great 4 year old Ethelbert, winner
of many stakes as a 3 year old, of the
Metropolitan handicap and the match
with Jean Beraud as a 4 year old and
up to the present time is the pronounc
ed favorite. Few were.willing to make
bets that he could be beaten in the race
today. This is surprising in view of the
tact tnat imp and Jean Beraud are
against him. There is no doubt of his
starting, for the track is dry and fast
and the day is fair, all of which things
Perry Belmont thinks are necessary to
have him go to the post.
Next to Ethelbert come Jean Beraud
and Imp, the former the best 2 year old
of his year and the latter one of the
best. Unquestionably Jean Beraud is
in better condition than when he raced
with Ethelbert two weeks ago. Imp,
who last season won the suburban in
fast time and beat Ethelbert in the
Brighton cup will stand a drive for the
whole route of a long race, and never
quit. If she is beaten it will have to be
by a better horse. John Bright comes
out of the west with a reputation which
easterners are disposed to scout. Kin
ley Mac is not likely to have a wet track
today as he did when he von the Brook
lyn handicap; and his legs have not the
confidence of betters.
Rafaello is entitled to consideration in
view of his good work In the handicap,
while Petruchio with his Brooklyn
derby behind him has some friends who
think ha has a good chance to win
with his light weight. The others will
all have their Mends, but they will
be swamped in the wave of popularity
w hich .sweeps Ethelbert on.
One feature of today's race will never
probably be repeated. It has always
been the custom in the big race tor the
lightweights to go out and make the
D.aoe, but this time all three of the
top weights do their best work in front
and ' will try to break each other's
hearts today from the fall of the nag.
ah oi mem can run tne nrst half in
better than 43 seconds, and Imp and
Ethelbert can keep on at about the
same pace. Jean Beraud mav do it
too, and one of the grandest finishes
ever seen on a race track is likely to

corridor of the Walton and announced
himself as the business manager of the
Topeka Plain Dealer. From the lapal
of his coat hung three orange ribbons,
upon which were printed the advant
ages of Kansas wheat, politics, and

"Where's Hanna?" was his first
query. No reply came from thfe won

Some one ventured that the commit

from a pickaninny, who was almost

Chicago, June 16. WHEAT The wheat
market today was broad, excited Hnrt
strong. The fact that there qrarolv
an., rain in Minnesota or North Dakota
was tne main tactor. Liverpool closed t
quarter higher and crops from the north
west very unravoraDle. France,, it was
reported would have to import 30.000,000
bushels of wheat. Illinois claimed dam
ages from heavy rains yesterdav. Heavv
outside interest in the market was appar
ent. July opened lc to c over vesterday
at from 75c to 74c. Most of the trading
was at 5c, the highest prices since last
October. Heavy realizing sales crushed
July back to 74c. but the market re
bounded to 75c, when the pressure from
longs ceased, the demand still being verv
heavy. Local receipts were 72 cars, one
of contract grade. Minneapolis and Du
luth reported 451 cars against 470 last week
and 587 a year ago. The demand con
tinued unabated to the end and July later
advanced to 75c. On profit-taking the
markets reacted some, but closed strong,
July IV-iQiie over yesterday at 75Mi'fjVic.
CORN Corn was fairly active and
firm. July opened "igSc higher at Sfls-gc to

22,'iQ. Receipts here were 256 cars.

WHEAT Liverpool cables were strong
er than anticipated today and continued
dry weather In the northwest, -causing se
vere damage beyond all question. The
most rabid bear has now given it up and
bear traders who went tc see the crop, or
sent good men. have admitted that it is
a fact that spring wheat is in very bad
shape and there will be .a calamity unless
rains comes in the next three or four
Cash markets are improving and the
foreigners who are always slow to be
lieve crop damage reports are awakening
to the realization that with dark political
clouds gathering in the Orient, Involving
two of the greatest wheat producing coun
tries in tha world and short wheat crop
for America, beyond question wheat will
be worth more money than for years. .
We believe the market is virtually on
rock bottom and that purchases on breaks
will result in enormous profits, if protect
ed with reasonable margins and a littia
CORN Corn advanced a half a cent a
bushel In sympathy with wheat. The cash
markets were not strong and receipts
OATS Oats were strong.
PROVISIONS Pork has turned toward
the $12.00 mark again and will probably
go higher. Hogs were higher at tne yarns.
Speculation will spread to pork sooner or .
later. We feel kindly to pork and believe
purchases will be profitable.
