TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, "WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 20, 1900.
3 Nervous Prostration from whatever cause overwork, dissipation, insomnia, care, worry tends directly to permanent invalidism or the insane hospital. It is the bane of the present age and of the Ameri can people. In the mad pursuit of money, men forget health, happiness, everything but business and the ac cumulation of wealth, which, if se cured, becomes valueless, because they have no health with which to enjoy it. The happy possessor of a healthy body never knows he has a body because of any ache or pain, and with systematic, reasonable attention to business, invariable rest and recre ation hours, plain, nourishing diet, almost anyone can be well. There are times, however, when there is an unavoidable strain. Use a few doses of to tide over the emnrgv-ncy. It will assist to maintain the well body at its normal standard, and i'or the alreadv sk k th-jro is nothing bettor to build up the constitution and rehabilitate the nervous system.

SPORTINMEWS. The Sailor and Lanky Bob Will Fight Again. Agreed That Such a Bout Would Draw 50,000 Crowd. ALONG IN DOG DAYS. Fitzsimmons' Hand Is Rapidly Coming Around. Bout W ould Be at Seaside Club In Early August. New York, June 20. Tom Sharkey and Eob Fitzsimmons have been prac tically matched to meet in a twenty five round bout at the Seaside Sport ing club at Coney Island the early part of August. When Fitzsimmons met Tom O'Rourke a day or two ago this conversation occurred: "Will you fight Sharkey at the Sea side club?" "Certainly. I will box him anywhere, for as I beat him once I am perfectly sure that X can do the same thing again." O'Rourke then informed Fitzsimmons that a fight between him and Sharkey in this vicinity would surely draw not less than $f,0,000, and Bob agreed with him. As Fitzsimmons" injured hand is rapidly coming around all right and promises to be well enough for him to tight with by the second week in Au gust, it is probable the match will be arranged. JOHN L. IN TRAINING. The Old Gladiator May Get in Condi tion Again. New York, June 20. Can it be pos sible that John L. Sullivan is training for a fight? Training he certainly is, but up to the present he has issued no challenge. It may be the old gladi ator will attempt to get in condition first, and then if he sees his physical resources warrant it, issue the challenge Sullivan is over at Metuchen, N. J., and a report from that burg says he is training diligently. John L. is using the time of his stay to take off some of the flesh, and clad in a red sweater he takes to the road daily, and, despite his age and weight, hits up a lively pace. He seems in good health, and his face is clearing under the inlluence of his exercise, short a time as he has kept it up. When Sullivan was asked if he in tended to enter the ring again he winked and was noncommittal. How ever, if the old chap manages to get his flesh off by a couple of months' hard work he may throw a scare into the pugilistic camp. M'GOVEEN COMING WEST. Will Be in Kansas City on Democratic Week. New York, June 20. Terry McGovern leaves New York today for Chicago. He rights George Dixon there next Satur day night.

Judge Burton, chairman, the members canea upon governor Roosevelt at nis room. Judge Burton announced to the governor that the Kansas delegation had determined unanimously and irre vocably to support him for vice presi dent. In his reply Roosevelt reiterated the statements he had made during the past three days, insisting that he did not desire the nomination and urging al his friends to refrain from voting for him. At the conclusion nf thp prwernnr's statement. Judge Burton said: "Gover nor, we have heard your wishes. Now listen to our demand. You must be the candidate for vice president." men turning to the members of the delegation, resplendent in their silk sunflowers, he said: "Gentlemen, allow me- to present to you the next vice pres ident or the United States." The gover nor greeted the members individually bu: persisted in his urgency that they snouid not vote tor him. Almost im mediately afterwards Governor Roose velt left his rooms and went down stairs to attend the meeting of the New York delegation. As he passed through the lobby of the hotel, not turning aside for anything or anybody, he was greeted with enthusiastic cheers. The Minnesota delegation will meet today to consider the advisability of placing the name of ex-Senator W. D. Wauhburn of the state before' the con vention for vice president. It is believed to b? almost certain that the delegation will decide to honor the ex-senator, and Cushman K. Davis will be the man to rnaki the nominating speech. Many of the delegates expressed themselves as being' in favor of nominating Mr. Wash burn and voting for him until a candi date Is decided upon. Ihe Ltah delegation is deadlocked in the selection of a national committee man and it appears more than likely that ihe disagreement will be carried to the national committee for settle ment. Three of the delegates Gover nor Wells, Thomas Kerns and Edward Loose presented the name of O. J. Salisbury, but he is not satisfactory to the remainder of the delegation. The six alternates are also opposed to him. Their objection is based on the fact that Salisbury bolted the party and went over to Bryan refusing to serve on the rational committee after he had been elected in St. Louis. The delegates opposed to him are Senator Brown, George H. Hanson and George Suther land. Taeir first choice is R. S. Mc- Cormick, a prominent banker of Salt Lake, but they assert that any good Republican will be satisfactory. Num erous conferences have been held but the Salisbury contingent refuses - to compromise. Delegates Kerns and Loose are millionaire silver miners. After two days of uncertainty the California delegation decided to sup port Secretary Long for vice president. Some of the delegates would be glad to vote for Roosevelt, but they are in clined to take him at his word and re frain from voting for him. George Knight, chairman, said that under the circumstances it would cast its 18 votes for Long. The secretary is very popular, not only in California, but all along the Pacific coas:t, with Roosevelt out of the race, he wi 1 in the opinion of his Cali fornia frienls, receive generous support from that section. The Colorado delegation will vote for Roosevelt f:r vice president. Several members of the delegation do not look upon Roosevelt's nomination with favor but will acquiesce in the wishes of Sen ator Wolcott. REPUELICANS JOLLIFY. Big Mass Meeting Addressed by Prominent Politicians. Philadelphia,, June 20. Last night a big mass meeting was held in Academy of Music at which Mayor Ashbridge of this city presided. This is the building in which Gen. Grant was nominated m 1872. A number of distinguished Repub licans addressed the meeting. Representative Grosvenor, - of Ohio, quoted Congressman Bailey as saying in 1898 that if prosperity followed the pas sage of the Dingley bill, there would be no necessity for Democratic nomination in 1900. and in vi;w of present conditions he called on Ba. ley to make good the Implied promise. Lafayette Young of Iowa was intro duced by Mayor Ashbridge as represen tative of Congressman Dolliver, whose candidacy for vies president he support ed in brief speech. Senator Penrose, of Pennsylavnia, Sen ator Thurston, of Nebraska, and Con gressman Dalzell, of Pennsylavnia, also spoke. The Blaine club of Cincinnati was giv en a banquet last night by William R. Leeds association, one of the largest and most active local Republican clubs. Over 500 men participated and the en tertainment lasted until long after mid night. Many leaders; attended' and made informal speeches, including Senators Foraker, Wolcott, Penrose and Shoup, Congressmen Dolliver. Cannon and Bingham and ex-Senator Quay. PLATFORM MAKING. The Committee on Resolutions Worked Nearly All Night Philadelphia. June 20. The committee on resolutions is finding difficulty in agreeing upon a declaration of principles. All agree upon the sentiment to oe expressed along me entire line or suDjects to be covered dui tne ainicuity is in nnding common ground of expression. The full commit tee placed the matter in the hands of eleven of its members as a sub-commit tee. The committee had before it the draft of the platform prepared by Postmaster oenprai bmitn and senators t oraKer and lairbanks, and while.it found the docu ment elegantly expressed, the opinion was expressed by several of the members that it was of too great length and not suffi clently "catchy" in phrase for popular consumption. Mr. Quigg was especiallv zealous in advocating a change to meet this objection. Ihe committee, thereture. referred all the resolutions to him with in structions to put them in plain and simple language. Mr. Quigg spent a part of the evening in this task, and when the sub committee convened at midi ight, present ed his draft to them. The committee reconvened at 5 o'clock when the following members were ap pointed a sub-committee to d.ft and sub- mit a platform to the full committee: Sen ators Fairbanks of Indiana. Eavis of Min nesota, Gallinger of New Han. pshire, For aker of Ohio. Carter of Montana and McCumber of North Dakota: and Messrs. Quigg o New York, Noyes ot Maryland; "COLDS" Radway's Ready Relief cures and pre vents, Colds. Coughs. Sore Throat. Influ enza. Bronchitis. Pneumonia. Sweliing of the Joints, Lumbago, Inflammation.

Bruises, Pains in the Back, Chest or Limbs, it instantly stops the most excru ciating pains. Sold by Druggists. RADWAY & CO.. New York. Madden of Illinois and Roswell of Califor nia. Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania intro duced a declaration for an executive de partment of the government to be known as the department of commerce and in dustry, but it was referred to the sub committee. When the sub-committee convened a delegation of ladies from the Suffrage as sociation was admitted to present argu ments for a resolution which they sub mitted, asking congress to submit to the state legislatures an amendment to the constitution granting the elective fran chise -to women. The delegation was headed by Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, president of the equal suffrage associa tion, and Mrs. Annie Shaw, vice presi dent of that association, and they both made brief speeches in support of the proposition. A protest against the suffrage plank was also submitted. This was handed in by Mrs. Frances M. Scott of New York. Mrs. J. Eliot Cabot of Massachusetts, Mrs. Caroline F. Corbiti of Illinois, Mrs. R. W. Wilbur of Oregon, Mrs. Samuel Cassady of Iowa, and Mrs. C. W. Griggs of Wash ington, each of them president of a state or city society opposed to the extension of suffrage. They took the position that "an extension of the suffrage to a very large body of new voters is a serious step, and one which should be taken only when it clearly appears that such an extension is necessary to the general welfare of the community or that it is called for as an act of justice to a body of citizens who are sufferiner some deprivation of their rights by reason of present disqualifica- SENATOR CHAUNCEY M. DEPEW, Whom Governor Roosevelt May Ask to xaKe nis Place in seconding Mc Kinley's Nomination for Fear of Creating the stampede. tion," and asked: "Can it be proved that eitner ot these reasons exists so far as the women of this country are con cerned?" Another delegation that wa? heard verv briefly was composed, of colored men and was headed by Representative White. They awked for the insertion of planks denouncing mob violence in the south and against the suppression of the ballots of citizens in the southern states. The whole matter was referred to Mr. Lvnch. of Mississippi with instructions to draft a pianK covering the southern question. ti. M. Hanna. of Indiana, and Henrv C Payne of Wisconsin, were heard at some length in support of the request to in corporate, the following plank in the plat form : "The employment of the people is the contentment of the people. The greatest neneiaction to man is the opportunity to labor. Our best hope for continued pros perity lies in winning the world's markets lor tne products or the American tarm and factory. Low interest rates are po tent factors in securing this result. The wise financial legislation already enacted by the Republican party contributes to this end. Having secured stabilitv in our currency we now favor additional mone tary legislation to equalize and lower the rates ot interest by providing flexible and sufficient medium of exchange for the benefitof the borrower, as well as the lender of money , in order that American commerce may be enlarged and that labor may be assured ot steady and remunera tive employment." l ney made an earnest plea for the reso ution, but it met with opposition on the rround that it was liable to be interpreted as calculated to disturb the financial leg islation already secured. The draft of the platform as proposed by Senators Foraker and Fairbanks and otners was then read bv Mr. Foraker. It is the same document which was previous ly outline, out. several verbal changes were suggested. Objection was made that it w-as too long and it was referred to a subcommittee to revise and shorten, if possible. There was considerable discussion of the financial plank, which, as it stands, is an absolute declaration for the gold standard. Several modifications of this resolution were considered, among them one sug gested by the Colorado delegation which met with favor among the western mem bers. It read as follows: VThe Republican party by tradition and principle is in favor of bimetallism and upon all proper and opportune occasions will advocate the co-operation of the United States with the other leading com mercial nations of the world to secure the free coinage of both gold and silver at a. fixed ratio." The question was not settled at the early evening meeting. Pending its discussion the sub-committee adjourned to await the actinn of its revisers, to meet again at midnight. The recess until midnight was taken for the purpose of permitting Lemuel E. Quigg, the New York member of the com mittee, to go through the draft of the platform and to make the changes neces sary stated bv the action of the sub-committee. When the recess was taken at 9 o'clock a positive policy had been decided upon on most of the questions considered proper for action. The principal declaration of the finan cial plank had been completed, but there was still doubt as to whether any refer ence would be made to silver, with the in dications favorable to a slight recogni tion of international bimetallism. This, however, to be accompanied by the posi tive declaration that without international agreement, bimetallism is not to receive any recognition whatever. At that hour, however, the resolution declared abso lutely tor the maintenance of the gold standard, commended the passage of the final legislation of the last session of con gress and then adds some features from the plan suggested by Messrs. Hanna and Payne favoring such legislation as will se cure lower rates of interest in times of linancial stringency by permitting the temporary issuance of a limited increase of 'the bank circulation to be secured by depositing United States bonds. On the question of trusts the document says that "while recognizing the neces sity and legitimacy of the co-operation of capital in the promotion of the industrial enterprises, we are opposed to all combin ations intended to restrict trade, to limit production, to affect prices and to destroy competition, and we favor such legislation as will effectively prevent abuses liable to arise from such combinations." There is also a declaration in the inter est of labor with which is coupled a de mand for the restriction of immigration. This plank says that "In the interest of tne American worKmgman, we tavor such legislation as will regulate and restrict foreign immigration. There is also a demand for the raising of the age limit of children employed in factories and for shorter hours of labor for ail classes of laborers. The president is commended for his ten der of mediation in the war between Great Britain and the 1 ransvaal reoublic. and this is coupled with the declaration that in view of the restrictions placed upon him by the Hague treaty, he could not go lurtner. 1 he tact is pointed opt. however, that no other nation has gone so far in manifesting sympathy for the Boers. There is the usual declaration for a pro tective tariff, coupled with an expression or commendation or tne course or the Re publican party in enacting the Dinelev law and a determination to maintain the Dnhcv expressed in that law. The president's course in the war with Spain, in the Philippines and in Cuba and Porto Rico is commended. There are two or three drafts of the resolution, all dif ferine in phraseology and all the same in sentiment, but it is not known which one of them will be accepted. A liberal pension policy is favored lib- eral laws and the liberal administration of them. There is a declaration in favor of maintaining the country's pledges to Cuba in the matter of independence: de mand for the maintenance of the present civil service law and for its extention to the new possessions as far as practicable under prevailing conditions; a declaration for the protection of the colored people of the southern states in their rights un der the constitution; commendation of the movement for gocd roads in the country, in corporated at the instance of Senator Gal linger, and a suggestion looking to the re moval of a portion of the war taxes. The sub-committee of the committee on platform resumed its sitting at midnight and adjourned a few minutes after 2 o'clock. It concluded its draft of the fin ancial plank which is as above given with the addition of the following clause: "We are unalterably opposed to the free coinage of silver, unless by agreement with the commercial nations of the world." There was a declaration for a canal across the Isthmus of Panama, but no pronouncement for the Nicaraguan or any other specific route. Following is the plank with reference to the Boers: "We sympathize with the people of the Transvaal republ:cand approve the course oi tne president or tne unitea states in tendering the mediation of this country in the struggle between that republic and the kingdom of Great Britain and we fur ther express the hope that the contest may terminate with honor to both the contesting parties." The specific allusion to the acquisition of the Philippines and Porto Rico, and to the course of the president with reference to them as well a3 to other incidents and results of the Spanish-American war is approved. The present situation in China is re ferred to in a paragraph suggesting it to be the dutv of the United States to pro tect the interest of its citizens wherever they may be. COMMITTEE ON CREDENTIALS Have a Lively Time Settling Contests Texas Delegates in a Fignt. Philadelphia, June 20. The committee on credentials, after an all night session, adjourned at 6 a. m., having completed all its business. A lively fist fight between two Texas delegates occurred at 4:30 o'clock, just after the committee had listened to ar guments from contesting delegates in that state. As the delegates were leaving the committee room, W. H. Love, a delegate from McKinney, Texas, accused Walter Burns of having made statements in the committee room which were not true. Burns denied that he had made any such statements and Love called him a. liar. Burns promptly planted his fist in Love's face with a violence that would have laid Love on the floor had not some bystanders caught him. Bums after striking the blow stood quietly watching Love, who was making des perate efforts to break away from the men who were holding him. Love had a knife partially drawn from his pocket. "I'm through," said Burns, "unless he starts it again." Love was "finally hustled down the stairs and taken away by his friends. Immediately after this row two cplor ed delegates began to make violent threats and warlike demonstrations at each other. This trouble also involved a question of veracity. They were drag ged apart without difficulty. In the Tennessee contest case the Brownlow people won a clean victory over the Evans faction, the committee Copyright, lit(;o.l EX-SEN.

The Texas delegation pre sented eleven counties two among the delegates at large, and nine in the first nine districts. The contestees were followers of E. H R. Green and opposed the delegation al ready seated, headed by Congressman R. B. Hawley, of Galveston. The issue was disastrous to the Green people who not only lost all their contests, but had one man supplanted by a Hawley fol lower in the Fourth district. Two Hawley delegates were given the seats from the Sixth district, no dele gates from there previously having been admitted to the convention, in the Sec ond Virginia district, the contests brought by Harry Libbey and Alva H. Martin against George E. Bowden and W. S. Holland proved a failure, the claims of the Bowden delegates being confirmed by the committee. The contest in the District of Colum bia was terminated by a decision in fa vor of John E. Jones and w. C. Chase, the present delegates. COX THE BOSS STILL. There Was Opposition to Re-electing Him Committeeman, But He won. Philadelphia, ' June 20. One of the prettiest contests among the state dele gations was that m the Ohio delegation for national committeeman. Three can didates had announced themselves, and while it seemed certain that George B. Cox, of Cincinnati, would be chosen, one of the other candidates, M. A. Norris, of Youngstown, suddenly developed un expected strength. Just prior to the meeting his friends asserted with confidence that he would be elected. They reckoned without the votes, however, for, of the 46 votes In the delegation, Cox received 23. THE ELEVATOR DEOPPED. Fell Seven Stories in Hotel Walton Injuring Several. Philadelphia, June 20. The elevator In the Hotel Walton fell seven stories at midnight and Injured five of the passen gers and the elevator boy. The two passengers most seriously hurt were J. C. Pringey, a delegate from Oklahoma, and Brenton F. Hall, a delegate from Belding, Mich. Dr. Burton and Walter Hunter, of Delaware; Marcellus West, of Washing ton, and Dr. Camden, of Texas, were al so among the injured. Prir.gey and Hall have broken legs. Dr. Camden, of Texas, had an arm and leg broken by being thrown out of the elevator as the elevator fell. All of the injured are being cared for, two having been taken to hospitals. HOSE WATER SIDETRACKED. Nebraska Failed to Elect the Omaha Editor National Committeeman. Philadelphia, June 20. Editor Rose water of the Omaha Bee was sidetrack- L - f ed by his election as Nebraska's mem ber of the resolutions committee. The delegation met at S o'clock and comple ted its organization In everything ex cept the election of a national commit teeman. That was left for a later met ing. Mr. Rosewater wanted to be na tional committeeman and although he carried the state convention which chose delegates at large, the district delegates were almost solidly against him. RAILROAD NEWS.

BAKER INjiABNESS Senator Assumes Personal Sn peryision of His Campaign. Chairman Albaugh Keeping Out of the Fight. The absence of Senator Lucien Eaker -in Washington during the session of congress gave his opponents in the sen atorial contest some advantage in the organization of their forces but the time that has thus been lost by the Baker forces will be more than made up in the activity with which the campaign on the part of Mr. Baker will be conducted from this time on. One of the incidents in this campaign on the part of Mr. Baker and Mr. Bur ton is the frequency with which they call upon their friends to work first for the success of the party; that being par amount to the success of the individual. However, much as the two leading can didates for the place aspire to the crea tion of a sentiment of this character, the senatorial contest is being made the most important fight of the campaign. Senator Baker is reported this week to be out on a trip looking after some of his fences in various parts of the state, the purpose of the senator being to get his workers Into line and to dis cuss the plans for the campaign. The first meeting of this character was held at Leavenworth the first of the week, I. E. Lambert, Frank Brown, Judge W. C. Hook, and other friends of the senator being present. The plan of campaign was discussed and the pre liminary movements were arranged so that the friends of the senator could go to work. From now until the election Mr. Eaker will have active supervision of his own campaign and he 13 now working with confidence in the result. Mr. Baker and his friends feel sure of his re-election in the event the legisla ture is elected by the Republicans. It has been charged that Chairman Albaugh of the state Republican com mittee had joined the Burton forces and would be against Mr. Baker. This ru mor lacks confirmation and there are no indications that Albaugh will take anj' part in the senatorial contest. The politicians say that Chairman Al baugh will attend strictly to the man-" agement of the affairs of the state com mittee and will be impartial on every proposition, so far as it is possible for a man to be. The friends of Albaugh do not claim for him infallibility but they are persistent in the assertion that he is a fair minded man and that he will not jeopardize his own interests as chairman of the state committee by be coming entangled in the contest whica might embarrass him. The Baker and Burton forces are still claiming that each was responsible for the election of Mr. Albaugh to the posi tion of chairman but this question will be eliminated later on and if the chair man takes no part in the contest the actual facts concerning the election will probably never reach the public. The Burton folks have intimated that in making Albaugh chairman they did not bind him to support Burton for the senate but they do claim that Mr. Al baugh was compelled to promise to keep out of the fight, not helping either canoiaate. There is one thing certain about the state chairman. He thinks the state icket and the legislature should be first elected before so much energy is ex- penaea on tne senatorial fiuht but he will not suggest to the prospective sen ators wnat they should do. but will on the contrary warm the campaign uo as mucn as he can in the interests of suc cess for the party.
