The Pittsburg Dispatch Is unkind
enough to bint that the Dolliver boom
is based on a desire to get the Iowa

no excuse for talking.
Those delegates who favor the nomi
nation of a member of the administra
tion for vice president probably do so
on the theory that there cannot be too
much of a good thing.
Immediately following the announce
ment that Sir. Bryan had enlarged and
improved his front porch comes one
to the effect that he will not make a
speech-making tour of the country
after his nomination.
The first nominating national con
vention of the Republican party was
held in Philadelphia, in 1836. It noml
nated Fremont and Dayton, who were
defeated by Buchanan and Breckin
ridge. The one now in session is the
twelfth in the history of this great po
litical organization. Eight of its noml
rues for the presidency have been
elected, viz., Abraham Lincoln, in 1SG0,
and again in 1S64; IT. S. Grant, in 1868.
nd again in 1872; Rutherford B.
Hayes, in 1S76; James A. Garfield, in
1SS0; Benjamin Harrison, in 13S8, and
William McKinley. in 1896. Its nomi
nees have been defeated at three elec
tions only John C. Fremont, in 1S36,
James G. Blaine, in 1S84, and Benja
min Harrison, in 1S92. Including the
present convention, Philadelphia will
have been the meeting place of three;
five have met in Chicago, one in Baltl
more, one in Cincinnati, one in Minne
apolls, and one in St. Louis.
GOVERNMENT ROAD BUILDING
From the Philadelphia Call.
Uncle Sam cannot be accused of lack
ing in paternal care for his own. But of
all the channels for the distribution of
his beneficence agriculture lies closest
to his heart. For gifts through the navy
or the war department, the state or
treauury department, you have to ask
a good many times befoe your Uncle
Kamuel will hear. Approach him
through the postoITice department or
Ihe department of the interior and he
is as elot:e as a Connecticut parson
But mention agriculture to Uncle Sam
and he smiles, his purse strings loosen
by a natural movement, and his gen
eiosity knows no bounds. Agriculture
Is Uncle Sam's strong point. It' is
likewise his greatest weakness. Pump
kin seeds, tulip bulbs, sunflower cones,
patent washes for weevil, rust and cut
worms anything pertaining to agricul
ture? Uncle Sam will give away with
a free hand, but he wouldn't give you
ft postage stamp for worlds.
The latest fad of Uncle Sam's is to
order his chief engineer to go into ag
ricultural communities, far and near,
end build a good piece of road. Doyles
town is one of the beneficiaries of this
generosity. A road with Telford foun
dation and macadam surface is being
constructed between Doylestown and
the National Farm school. The idea is
to make a piece of road so good by
contrast that the farmers will be
ashamed of their other roads. They
will not onlv want to build better
roads then, but by looking on while
Uncle Sam is building his piece they
will learn just how to do It. After
F'eitie how Uncle Sam removes the
day surface, lays a Telford foundation
and covets it with crushed macadam it
Is believed no farmer would dare run a
plow along a road, loosening up the dirt
and laying it in neat furrows along the
center and call it road-making-.
Road building by the government has
not made much progress. The present
undertaking In that line will do more
than all else to stimulate the desire for
good roads..
GLOBE SIGHTS.
From the Atchison Globe.
Marriage is like mining: a great thing
rwhen you strike it.
Usually, before a man falls in busi
he has a great deal to say about
how hard he has worked, and how he
has failed to receive proper apprecia
tion. An Atchison woman had grounds for
divorce before she was married.
Occasionally a man has no other suc
cess than to illustrate what bad man
agement can do.
Some people resolve to make the
world joyous by their example, and are
too good natured.
Kvery woman complains of some
neighbor who never comes over except
when she wants to borrow.

NO MORE HARVEST HANDS.
Labor Bureau Abandons the Kansas
City Branch.
B. P. Scott, assistant secretary of the
state labor bureau, has returned from
Kansas City, having discontinued the
branch of the department which has
been maintained there for some time to
aid in supplying the state with harvest
hand.
Mr. Scott worked with the railroads in
supplying the demand for men. and was
successful in placing S00 men at work.
This is in addition to the thousands of
men who went out of Kansas City on
boxcars. When sending men out to the
various points Scott would purchase
tickets for the whole number and out of
the S00 sent out not a single one was
lost from the party.
"The average wages," said Mr. Scott
today, "paid to the men sent out is $2
per day. Some receive more; some less.
"Ninety per cent of the men who went
to work through this department were
from eastern Kansas and western Mis
souri. Not a single one of those who
applied to us for work was without
money. All of them had money and
clothing." '
The men sent out by Mr. Scott were
distributed as nearly as possible pro
portionate to the requests for men
which, now on file in the department,
show the following demands for men to
work in the harvest:

WILLIAMS IS DEFIANT.
Liquor Men Try to Secure Discharge
of Prohibition Leader.
There is no man in Kansas who is
more bitterly or generally despised by
liquor men than Mont Williams of
Lansing, chairman of the Prohibition
state central committee, who is prom
inent in the Prohibition gathering here
today.
Williams has earned the hatred and
ill-will of the brewers and local vio
lators in Leavenworth county until sev
eral attempts have been made to do
him personal violence. Only a few
weeks ago two men attempted to pull
v imams out or a buggy, presumaDij
for the purpose of clubbing him. Wil
liams at the time was in the buggy with
his wife going to church.
Williams is an uncompromisingenemy
of the liquor traffic. He believes it pos
sible for the governor to enforce the
prohibitory law on tlie pike and in
Klondike alike and his utterances con
cerning this subject have not been of
the kind calculated to exercise a sooth
ing iniiuence upon the consciences of
the men who do not take the pains to
come within the provisions of the state
law when the subject of selling liquor
is considered.
In a modest way some years ago Wil
liams took up the fight against the
liquor element which has always been
notorious in Leavenworth county and
has since been getting deeper into the
squabble which is always going on
there. During all of this time he has
been the local or joint agent of the Mis
souri Pacific and Union Pacific rail
roads at Lansing. Wrilliams made the
race for congressman at large upon the
Prohibition ticket two years ago and
was especially bitter in his denunciation
of those who deal in liquors.
Williams is a vigorous campaigner
and the remarks which he made were
of such a character as to attract the
attention of the element he was fight
ing. His speeches were reported and
with these documents the brewers and
shippers of liquor into Leavenworth
county opened the heavy artillery. It
was demanded at the outset that Wil
liams be removed from the county.
Later this was amended to a demand
that he be discharged from the service
ot the company. . W ith this sort ot a
fight against him Williams has kept an
incessant hammering against the liquor
element. Representatives of the liquor
traffic called on Williams and offered
to dismiss the fight against him if he
would agree to stop the fight against
them. This he refused to do and the
case which they made is now pending
in the office of the general manager of
the Missouri Pacific.
START'S PREDICAMENT.
Ordered Released But Court Is Not in
Session.
Al Start, a prisoner in the state pen
itentiary, according to a decision of the
supreme court is to be released, but the
district court which has been ordered
to carry this mandate into effect does
not convene until December so the
prisoner seems to be up against a diffi
cult proposition.
Start hails from the short grass coun
try where it was fashionable to have
notches on a gun barrel indicative of
the number of men the possessor of the
gun had killed. Start had trouble and
used his gun but he did not earn the
right to have a notch filed on his re
volver. The victim did not die. Start
was tried under charges of assault with
intent to kill. He was convicted and
sent to the penitentiary.
The ease was appealed to the supreme
court, which at the last session, or
dered the district court to release Start
from prison. The district court does
not convene until December so the offi
cers interested are here asking the su
preme court to amend the order to give
Start his liberty at once.
Leavenworth's Population.

PICTURESQUE CLUBS.
Two From Washington, Composed of
Negroes, Are in the Lead.
Philadelphia, June 20. The most pic
turesque clubs that have arrived so far
are the 31aine Invincibles and the W.
Calvin Chase Republican clubs, both
of Washington. These clubs are com
posed of negroes. The Invincibles, at
tired in tall hats, tan frock coats, tan
trousers and gloves, bearing red and
white umbrellas, marched up Broad
street headed by a negro band which
played "Dixie" "and "Yankee Doodle."
The W. Calvin Chases wore gray hats, i
coats, trousers, and gloves, and car
ried umbrellas similar to the Invin
cibles. The Chase club was for Wood
ruff. It lined up in the street in front
of the Walton, and one. monumental
negro, with a fine white beard, veiled
at the top of his lungs, "What's the
matter with Woodruff-f-f ?"
The hundred marchers gave the ex
pected answers; then somebody called
for three "ch?ers for the lieutenant gov
ernor. Thes? were given by the march,
ers. Then solicitous inquiry was made
again as to Mr. Woodruff's fitness.
Three more cheers. The club expected
that Mr. Woodruff, whom they regard
ed as a very generous gentleman, would
do something, make a speech, or at
least appear at the window and bow.
But Mr. Woodruff didn't appear. Final
ly the marchers became impatient and
one of them, turning to the others,
said: "Well, lets move on; there's
nothing doing here." Then the marshal

All the red and white umbrellas were

Young Men's Blair e club of Cincinnati
arrived in the afternoon and brought a
big band, which serenaded the guests at
the Walton. This cub was organized in
the Blaine campaign and most of its
members have belonged to it ever since
then. They are proud of their organiza

ROOSEVELT VS. M'KINLEY.
Bets that the Governor Will Head
the Ticket.
St. Louis, June 20. A special to the
Reoublic says:
Stock brokers were busy during the
closing hour of the market betting on
tne possibility ot Governor Roosevelt
being nominated for president by the
Republican, convention.
The opening odds were 1 to 10, the
small end being in affirmation of such
a nomination.
At these odds Sidney S. Schuyer
placed money with J. S. Jones of Jones,
Maury & Co. George S. Lancon also

placed two bets at the same odds with
J. Ivins and a representative of Charles
Fairchild & Co.
Immediately before the. close of the
market the odds shifted quickly, the
representatives of some Philadelphia
firms offering 1 to 2 that Roosevelt
would be nominated for the first place.
The fact that these bets were made
by brokers with thi3 connection had
a depressing effect on stocks, on the
theory that the upsetting of the Repub-
lican machine, which such a nomina
tion would imply, would injure the
chances of the ticket winning in the
election.

getting places forty times. Sloan, out of
thirteen mounts, has six nrsts, lour sec
onds and live thirds; L. Reiff, out of four
teen mounts, had four firsts and two
thirds. Reviewing tile racing of the
week in the Sporting Times, John Cor-
lett says:
Again the great feature was the extra
ordinary success of the American jockeys,
which amounts to the revelation that our
own jockeys have, with few exceptions, be
come utterly aeteri: ttea. v e were al

the case was as bad as it proves to be.
There is no fad of fashion in the employ
ment of Americans. On the other hand,

ridicule. The position they have won has
been gained by sheer merit. On Cup day
especially their successes were most re
markable. They ride with their heads as

THE BOSS DENOUNCER.
Prohibition Delegate Who Was After
Republicans and Populists.
S. B. Kokanour of Clay Center was
the thorn in the flesh of the Prohibition
convention. He was suppressed by the
committee on resolutions, but he re
fused to subside and insisted upon the
adoption of a series of resolutions pre
pared by himself.
These resolutions denounced the Re
publican and Populist legislatures for
amending the state ballot law "in such
shape as to make it almost impossible
for new and minority parties to exer
cise the right of suffrage." as "an out
rage upon popular government and a
stigma on the parties perpetrating it."
Kokanour also denounced the national
congress and supreme' court for licens
ing the liquor traffic.
These declarations fourtnr denounced
the legislature for amending the pro
hibitory law in such a manner as to re
move a portion of the law governing
penalties.
The author of the resolutions enlisted
the sympathy of J. L. Eldridge of To
peka, the latter presenting the resolu
tion denouncing the practice of electing
political shysters U the legislature. He
wanted the platform amended. This
precipitated a debate. Mr. Garton of
Norton wanted all resolutions kept out
Rev. Dr. Richardson opposed the load
ing of the platform with unnecessary
things.
W. M. Howie of Garnett favored the
adoption of the resolution, but the plat
form was finally adopted as submitted.
M'KINLEY AND CANTEEN.
Both are Denounced by the Prohi
bition Convention.
The Prohibition state convention this
afternoon adopted a resolution denounc
ing President McKinley for not sup
pressing the army canteen.
HILL FOR MCE PRESIDENT
Part of Kentucky Delegation in Favor
of the New Yorker.
Frankfort, Ky., June 20. Judge W.
S. Pryor, one of the Kentucky delegates
at large to the Kansas City convention,
today announced that he was for for
mer Senator David Bennett Hill, of
New York, for vice president. The
Kentucky delegation is divided between
Hill and former Congressman Shively,
of Indiana, but most of them favor a
man from Indiana or New York for
second place with Bryan.

Penitentiary Warden Says He Knows
Nothing of Elenora Hotel Joint
Warden Tomlinson has replied to the
charges made by the Prohibitionists. In
an interview in today's Leavenwortn
Times he said:
"It is true that Mont Williams and
several others came to me some time
ago and asked me to shut off the lights
and water supply to the Elenora hotel.
charging that the place was being run
as a joint.
"I told them I did not know any
thing about its being run as a joint but
that if that was so and they would
show that it was, I would shut off the
lights and water.
"They then said they would bring a
man who would swear that liquor was
being sold at the place. They finally
found a man whom they said would
swear he had bought liquor there. They
did not bring him to me for it after
wards developed that he would not
swear that he had bought liquor in the
hotel and denied that ha had ever said
so.
"I told the parties who asked me to
shut off the water and light supply that
at any time when they would bring a
citizen who would swear liquor was
being sold in the hotel I would shut off
the light and water.
"They wanted me to go ahead but
I refused to do that. I told them the
county attorney was the proper person
to close the place and that he was
elected for this purpose.
"I do not know anything about liquor
having been sold at the hotel.
"We have been furnishing light and
water to the place. The state was do

WHEAT'S FLIGHT.
Reaches Highest Point Since
the Leiter Deal.
Chicago, June 20. Wheat had an
other sensational start In prices today.
July sold to 81 cents, an advance of
3 cents over yesterday's close and
closed at the top. There was an enor
mous trade. Many who had bought at
a lower price took out profits. The ex
tremely grave situation in thenorthwest
was the influence in the advance. Re
ports from that section todav were
that the crop had been practically
ruined by the lack of rain. Under an
immense pressure from buyers the
market forged resistlessly ahead to
Sl- cents, closing at the top, 3 cents
over yesterday. Profit taking was on
a heavy scale but failed to check the
advance. The close today is the high
est price since the Leiter deal.
The torn market responded to the
wheat strength and closed 1 cents up
at 41 cents.

making his nomination probably unani
mous but taking to themselves the
credit of the nomination. They say
the action of New York under Senator
Piatt's guidance in deciding to nominate
Mr. Woodruff leaves the door open for
this course, and that if in view of this
circumstance Roosevelt is named there
can be no doubt that they will get the
credit for the nomination. The presi
dent has refused to take a position in
the matter. His friends assert that any
man he would name could be nomi
nated. SEWALL IS FIRST.
