TOPEKASTATE-JOUENAI MONDAY EVENING, JUNE IS, 1900
5 A 1 lae ENDOWMENT EVER PAID. Fifteen years ago Mr. George Gooderham, of Toronto, took i out 15-Year Endowment Policy No. 289,421 for $J00,000, in t the Equitable Life Assurance Society, paying an annual premium of $8,382. Now his policy has matured and shows the follow- ing results : i. Cash, - - $150,847 1. Paid-up Assurance, 210,000 3. Annuity for Life, - 20,320 At the same time Mr. Gooderham took out a policy of the same kind for the same amount and with the same pre mium, in another company; the cash return on which was $15,000 less than on the Equitable policy. Here is what Mr. Gooderham says of his results: "I have always been a strong advocate of Endowment Insurance, and about the time I took your policy for $100,000 I placed 400,000 of Endowment pol icies on my life in eight different companies. Of this amount 310,000 has already matured. I have lived to see the result and to know what it mean3. These results realized by tho Equitable are larger and more satisfactory than than any result ever realized by me on any of my policies which have matured to date. I may say that they are quite satisfactory, and that no company has ever done so well for me." 111 Life Assurance Society of the United States. j Energetic men of character who desire to represent the Society address JOHN C. STANTON, JR., Manager, Room 3, Sformont Building ANOTHER MANIFESTO. Democrats Show Why Duval Can Not Withdraw. I. P. Campbell of Wichita, the Seventh congressional district Populist nominee, will be the or.e to withdraw, because Claude Duval has given it out cold that he will stay in the race and has publish ed a letter in which he rejects all pro positions lookina to his withdrawal, at the same time rejecting Campbell's sug gestions for a stttlt-ment of the exist ing controversy. After considering Du val's letter, the Democratic district cen tral committee issued the following- ad drss: "un April 17. 19')0, XZR Populist dele pates and 142 Democratic delegates hav ing been beforehand regularly chosen for that purpcse by the ordinary party method, met at Great Bend, Kan., to nominate a fusion candidate for con gress, of the votes of these delegates Mr. Duval on every ballot received a majority, and on the Era! and last bal lot, and the ballot on which Mr. Camp i eii received the votes of sy, thus giving Mr. Duval in the aggregate a plurality over Mr. Campbell of 65 votes and a ma jority over ail of 4i) votes, which we submit in all fairness entitles Mr. Duval on the face of the returns to be declared the fusion nominee of the rarties repre sented by these delegates. wXo objection was ever made by any one, before these conventions, to the manner of representation governing their make-up. until aftr the delegates thereto were elected, had assembled and had cast their votes. No taint of cor ruption, no charge of dishonesty ha3 ev-r be-n hinted at. much less mad", v. ith reference to the delegates or any of them, who composed either of the Great 15end conventions. "Their action at Great Bend speaks for itself, and from that action we maintain that the fusion banner should be carried by Claude Duval. Mr. Duval unquestionably had the support of a majority of the fusionists whose duty it was to elect the fusion ist candidate, and we now maintain that h h9 hohini his candidacy the support of a greater ' ..jo...v ..i me rusi n;scs of the district than he had at Grat Bend "Th result Justifies the statement that Mr. Duval and Mr. Campbell were the hrst and second choices repective-ly-..f tht,a!iSeT-bl"J delegates. We sub mit in all candor that the only manner in which the first and second choice or the delegates can be ascertained as be tween Mr. Duval and Mr. Carr.nbell is by a comparison of the aggregate num ber of votes which were cast f.r" Mr Duval with the aggregate numb, r" of votes which were cast frr Mr. Camp bell. Mr. Duval received 1C.4 votes, whi e Mr. Campbell received v.t-.-s. A p liv ing tills test we clearly see that Mr Du val is the first and Mr. Campbell the second choke of the delegates. Jf o i ,;nt .tm. . , v vuii , niLi1 ii i.rt.i oee;i nM as was proposed by the DrniMmu w UiiUUeSLlOULLOIV 11 a V e le-.i declared the fusion nominee. "We notice that Mr. Campbell says in his letter: 'These are my views as a citizen, and not as a candidate.' We agree with Mr. Campbell in this state ment. Whatever views he may entertain as a citizenare of but little consequence. It Is only with his views as a candidate for congress that the fusion voters of the Seventh district are concerned. by'1. his" corn'mf rorT neaHy" evv county in the district it is evident that Mr. Duval would receive a large ma jorny cr tne votes or the delegates to the Great Bend convention if they were reconvened in either separate or Joint convention; we. therefore, deem it inex pedient and unnecessary torecall the con- ST -! 1 -VU Strongest in the World. UITA vention together for that purpose. Mr. Duval will make the congressional race as the fusion nominee, asking for, as he is unquestionably entitled to, the loyal support of all voters who believe in the principles laid down in the national, state and congressional platforms of the Democratic, Populist and Silver Re publican parties. "With harmonious action between the allied forces in this-district in support of Mr. Duval, we are confident that the Republican candidate will be over whelmingly defeated at the November election, and that the people of this dis trict will be again represented in con gress by a man who will conform his actions to their wishes and needs, rath er than to the wishes of the president." WAST MORE WAGES. About 5,000 Wood Workers Threaten to Strike in Chicago. Chicago, June 18. Nearly 2,000 mem bers of the Amalgamated woodworkers unin met last evening in secret session to consider the refusal of the manufac turers to enter into a new agreement granting a 10 per cent increase of wages. The result of the meeting will not be officially declared before Wed nesday but it is believed that the union decided to strike in the event of a sec ond refusal on the part of the manufac turers. Between now and Wednesday a com mittee representing the woodworkers will communicate with the manufactur ers and endeavor to reach an amicable understanding on the wage question. The present wages of the woodworkers in Chicago, according to the manufac turers, are higher than in any other large city, the maximum being J2 for nine hours work. The manufacturers adopted resolu tions on June 11, declaring they would not grant the demand for an increase to J2.20 a day and their decision resulted in 8. referendum vote being taken by the local unions, the proposition being on the ratification of the proposed agreement to take effect on July 1. The vote is said to have been in favor of the new agreement and a strike. The demand for an increase of wages comes from the employes of the plants manufacturing st'ire and office fixtures, numbering about 3.000 men. In the event of i general strike of the woodworkers fully 5,000 men would be affected. BISHOP CKAXSTON'S IDEA. Declares That Civilized Nations Must Rule China. Chicago. June IS.

Makes London Financiers Feel a Little Easier. New York, June IS. The Times' Lon don financial correspondent cables: The bank reserve is a little better on the week, thanks to the return of coin and notes from internal circulation, but not much. In fact, it is not appreciably stronger than at the beginning of this year, when the bank rate was 6 per cent and the open market was only buying the finest paper afloat, in the neighbor hood of 7 per cent. The shipments of gold from New York to Paris encouraged the directors to look for relief from the demands for our gold and the expected receipt of 500, 000 of metal from Russia, known to be on the way, further encouraged them to take the step. Even without these gold movements it might have been ad visable to come down, because the open market had gradually been depressed to a figure fully 1 per cent below the 3Vi per cent bank rate.

An Important Industry Is to Be ReiiTed. The sugar beet industry is to be re vived in Kansas. The Parkinson sugar works at Fort Scott, long Idle, have been acquired by an Iowa corporation and the work of making sugar from beets will be inaugurated as soon as practicable. While the company is preparing for this important undertaking sorghum syrup will be manufactured from Kan sas cane. The sugar beet Industry has long been classed as an important one in Kansas but misfortunes which attended the early experiences had a depressing effect upon its promoters and little or nothing has been done in this direction for several years. The most important establishment for the manufacture of sugar was the Parkinson works at Fort Scott. This enterprise has been idle for a long time but the machinery is now being put in working order, the land upon which the plant 13 situated and the plant itself having passed into the hands of the Fort Scott Sugar and Sorghum Syrup company of Ijavenport, Iowa. The officers of the new company axe as follows: President L. P. Best, Davenport. la. Vice president R. Best, Davenport. Secretary W. C. Gunn, Fort Scotu Treasurer R. Best. These men own all the stock of the new company, which is capitalized at $60,000, cash paid up, and Si. 000 in cash additional. An appraisement value of the land is $35,0oO while the personal property is valued at $22,000. The principal liability of the company is an encumbrance of $25,000 on the plant and land. The financial showing of the company, according to documents submitted to the attorney general today, seems to be first class and there is no reason to pre sume that it will not succeed. The president of the company says: "There is no reason why such a factory will not pay in Kansas and we propose to make mis one a success. "The plant and machinery of the old Parkinson company is all in place and there is little improvement needed to begin the work for which this corpora tion is organized. The directors have great faith in the enterprise and believe that this state is as well adapted to sugar making as any other, provided, of course, care and judgment are exer cised in the conduct of the business." The officers of the company today presented their application for a char ter to the state charter board a spe cial meeting and authority for the com pany to do business in Kansas was at once conferred. Being a corporation organized in another state, the treas urer of the company was asked for a personal affidavit concerning the pur poses of the organization. This was promptly furnished and states that the company proposes to at once engage- in the making of sorghum, to be followed IRV CiOOBS REAL LINEN LAWNS-For Dresses.

A meeting of the Commercial club has been called for tonight to discuss the waterworks question. Mayor Drew is not pleased with the idea of the Commercial club holding a meeting to discuss the waterworks question, and as a member of the club, protests against it because the city council meets tonight and it will be impossible for any of the city council to be there and present their side of the controversy. He said that as soon as he got the plans and estimates for the city water plant he would be will ing to go before the club and tell his side of the story. The plans will not be ready before July 1. The mayor has reports from various cities which own their water plants and they all show that since the plants have come under city control they have been cheaper and have given better service. Among the reports are those from Springfield, 111., Kansas City, Chanute. Kansas, and Newark. N. J. Mayor Drew says the club should ar range to have the question, which is of vital importance to the city, brought up some night when both sides of the question could be heard. NEW G0VERX3IENT SHIPS.

There are five battleships and six armored cruisers to be built, and with these firms Interested no doubt is expressed that the bids wiil be as low as they think they can safely go.

Trigg company of Rich mond, Va., the Bath Iron Works, Lewis Nixon of Klizabeth. N. J., and other firms, are expected to compete for these contracts.
