TOPEKA STATE JOUHNAI, SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 30, 1900.
ARMY SCANDALS. They Take Precedence in Mind of British Public Displacing War 'Movements in Africa and Asia. KID OLOYED WARRIORS Are Making the English People Yery Weary. Khedive's Arrival Gives a Boom to Social Gaiety. Copyright, 1900, by Associated Press. London, June 30. The "Yellow Peril" as the Chinese crisis is now called here, is for the moment relegated to second place. Public interest in the hospital scandals in South Africa so absorbs at tention that no attempt of official quib bling can suppress it. The treatment of thousands of wounded and fever stricken British soldiers in the field threatens to become as serious a matter for public agitation as the military camps were after the Spanish-American war. If Lord Roberts was not so frankly willing to shoulder the major part of the responsibility the outcry which Mr. Burdett-Cuutts" letters raised would well nigh have swamped the govern ment. .But, few people care to seriously criticise the succtsslul general whose consideration for his men, especially the .wounded, is a by word in the army and elsewhere. The action of Lord Lansdowne, the secretary of state for war, in submit ting the criticism of Lord Roberts him telf was a master stroke of politics which temporarily saved the govern ment's head. However, if the proposed parliamentary committee finds the war office failed to adopt necessary medical jjrecuutions.it will take theconservatives a long time to re-establish their pres tige with the thousands in Great Brit ain who have suffered bitterly through the loss and illness of relatives in South Africa. It has been hard enough for those bereaved to "grin and bear" the long casualty lists, but, with the suspicion that lives were needlessly wasted there is no longer any restraint to their sorrow or limit to their indig nation. SIGN OF THE TIMES. A significant sign of the times is the announcement in the July issue of The Nineteenth Century that some of the most distinguished men regardless of party, have agreed to join an associa tion with the object of fixing steadily joiblic attention on the lessons of -the iwar.f iremost among which is the neces sity for examining the defenses of the empire and the need of conducting the various departments of state on or dinary business principles. Among those who have promised to become members are Lord Rosebery, the Karl of Leven and Melville, the Earl of Rosse. the Earl of Clanwilliam, Vis count Peel, the bishop of London (the Right Rev. Mandell Creighton, I). D.), Cardinal Vaughan. Sir Wemiss Reld, ir Howard Vincent and a large num ber of members of the house of com mons and army olficers. Viscount Letrhurst, colonel of a vol unteer battalion of the Worcester regi ment, who married an American, Miss Virginia P.onynge, (daughter of Mr. Charles V. lionynge, formerly of San I 'rancisco), in testifying before a parlia mentary committee this week, brought home with startling force, the rotten ness of the materials supplied to the army. He declared that after paying j'h extra price for shoes for the bat talion, after one march they were "like taper bags, with shreds of leather in Fide," and "you could easily put your finger through the majority of the Boies." KID GLOVED WARRIORS. An amusing story is current regarding Harry ISeaumont. one of the best dress ed London club men. who married Miss Jessie Fellows, of New York, and went to South Africa as an officer of the Cheshire yeomanry. It is said that he 1 equisitiom d a Uoer house for his own ise. but. before occupying it, he "show ered the building with insect powder." und "drenched it with eau de cologne." How tired the people of England are liecoming of such kid gloved methods of warfare could be Judged the other night when Sir Evelyn Wood, the adjutant general to the forces, who is notoriously influenced by feminine advice, received x hostile reception at the hands of such si. broad minded body as the Institution uf Mechanical Engineers. Somewhat on these lines Sir Claude McDonald, the P.ritish minister to China is coming in for criticism. It is fre quently said that he is a better hand at SLCternoon teas than in preserving the empire's interests in China. A local pa Jer at Tien Tsin once said it was evi dent Sir Claude's motto was: "I do not are what her flag is so long as she is fair." It is not generally known that last September Sir Claude McDonald was buffering so much from heart disease and other complications that he could scarcely walk a hundred yards. SOCIAL GAIETY REIGNS. Real social gaiety reigned this week for the first time this season. Hereto lore the festivities have been few and far between and of a rather forced or der. Rut during the last few days what with the arrival of the Khedive of !gypt, bazaars, entertainments, and countless dinners London has taken on Its old-time aspect for this time of the year. The Americans here have taken e. conspicuous share in the festivities. Jlrs. Mackay's house, which has so long been closed on account of mourning in the family was reopened Thursday with a concert. Mrs. Mackay received her guests at the top of the historic stair case, which once was in an Italian pal ace. She was dressed very simply in black, her ornaments consisting of a few costly black pearls. With her was her daughter, the Princess Colonna and but daughter-in-law. Mrs. Clarence Mackay, who was much admired, in white and silver with mauve orchids and a diamond tiara with turquoise points. Mr. William Waldorf Astor who also Jives in Carlton house terrace, gave a mu;-.icale the same night at which his numerous guests heard Mme. Calve and I'aderewskl. Republicans Alert at Concordia. Concordia. Kan., June 30. Isaac Rig by was last night elected president of the MeKinley and Roosevelt club or ganized here. Mr. Rigby is a new lead r in politics and the former political leaders do not take kindly to their down fall and loss of prestige and are talk ing of organizing- a second MeKinley club. The Union Pacific have arranged for -xtra equipment on all trains for Kan Fas City July. 4th and special train will leave Kansas City for Salina at 11 p. m. In addition to usual evening trains.

J to what should be contained in the financial plank of the platform to be presented to the Democratic national committee. Mr. Sulzer is regarded here as the mouthpiece, for the time being at least, of the New York delegation. In any event he is its representative so far as the Lincoln end is concerned. Mr. Sulzer himself is for a positive specific declaration for free silver coinage at a ratio of 16 to 1. He will not be satisfied with a reaffirmation of the Chicago platform. "To attempt to hedge or shelve this question would be cowardly and a be trayal," said Mr. Sulzer to the Associ ated Press correspondent. "It would be an admission to the Republicans that we have accepted their contention that free silver is a dead issue and that we were w rong and that they were right in the fight of four years ago. It is folly and false to assert that free silver is v mVvV V? ' CONGRESSMAN SULZER, Of New York, who may be Bryan's run ning mate. dead, either east or west. In my last canvass for a seat in congress, in a dis trict almost in the shadow of Wall street I made silver the whole issue and my majority was the largest ever given in the district. I made the fight on this issue against the advice of party lead ers, too." Whether Mr. Bryan takes the same stand as Congressman Sulzer neither gentleman will say, but it is the general opinion that they are not far apart.. J. Hamilton Lewis after an extended con ference at the Bryan home, said: "I am satisfied Mr. Bryan, if it were left to him, would not consent to the omission from the platform of an ex plicit declaration for free silver at 16 to 1." By the time Mr. Sulzer reaches Kan sas City most of the members of the New York delegation' will be there. Richard Croker and ex-Senator Murphy will have arrived by Sunday morning at the latest and on the tenor of Mr Sulzer's report, it is predicted, will de pend their subsequent action. It is not improbable that Messrs. Croker and Murphy may find time to run to Lincoln and see Mr. Bryan themselves before tne convention meets, though no one now in Lincoln can speak with authori ty on this subject Mr. Sulzer's vice presidential boom did not suffer as a result of his Lincoln visit. He made the acquaintance of a few of the Nebraska delegates and the coupling of his name with that of Mr. Bryan found apparent favor. "I am not a candidate for second place on the ticket in the sense of seek ing it," said Mr. Sulzer. "Naturally I am gratified at the support which has been promised me, and I certainly would not decline the nomination. Furthermore, I believe I am safe in saying if the sentiment at Kansas City develops in my favor I can com mand the support of the New York del egation. Mr. Bryan and myself have long been warm personal and political friends. He is the idol of the Democra tic party and no other name will be mentioned in the convention for first place on the ticket. Mr. Sulzer had another conference with Mr. Bryan this morning, but the main subject under discussion was not divulged. Mr. Sulzer's iniured rijrht thumb causes him considerable trouble and he will be handicapped in his hand- snaking ordeals for a week to come. Senator Allen will be one of Mr. Bryan's visitors today and he may re main until Monday. Populist vice presi dential nominee Towne is also expected, Dut nis coming is not certain. There is a bare possibility that Mr. Bryan may be yet induced to go to Kansas City to participate in the clos ing scenes of the convention Monday. Kansas City men in Lincoln believe he will go but all his arrangements are otherwise. Two telegraph wire loops are being strung to his city home, and Mr. Bryan's present plans are to receive, with a few friends, bulletins on the proceedings of the convention. SOUTH IS CONCILIATORY. Judge Van Wyck Pleased "With Senti ment on the Platform. Kansas City, June 30 Judge Augustus Van Wyck of New York at a reception here last night was asked by ex-Congressman James R. Waddill how those in the east who left the party in 1S96 could be induced to return. "By our showing them a little politeness," an swered Judge Van Wyck. "I have real ly been surprised at the disposition here in the west, as well as among southern leaders to soften the platform a little. The south is inclined to be conciliatory. Strange to say it is those New England states which can not contribute a single electoral vote who ask for a radical platform." COTJER D'ALENE RIOTS. Dubois Wants Democrats to Remain Silent on That Question. Kansas City, Mo., June 30. Ex-Senator Dubois of Idaho, one of the mana gers of the Silver Republican party. will probably be chairman of the committee on resolutions appointed at the conven tion which meet here July 4, and in this prospective capacity, has been consult ing the Democratic leaders regarding a proposed plank in the Democratic plat form upon the Coeur d'Alene mining ri- WE SJEJLX OUR $2.50 AND $5.00 COUPON BOOKS At a 5 Fer Coat.

Senator Dubois is very anxious that the subject shall not be included in the platform on account of the effect it will have upon Idaho politics. He says it is a local affair and ought not to be na tionalized. It is known that Representa tives Sulzer, of New York, and Lentz, of Ohio, who pushed the investigation before the house committee on military affairs, want a strong plank denounc ing the action of Governor Stuenenberg and the employment of United States troops. Such a plank, Mr. Dubois says will mean a rupture in Idaho among the allied forces opposed to the Republican party. Those with whom Mr. Dubois has consulted say there is a great deal of force in his argument, and he has been promised a hearing before the committee on resolutions of the Demo cratic convention. HAS BRYAN CONSENTED P Report That He Will Not Urge a Spe cific Declaration of 16 to 1 Plank. Lincoln, Neb., June 30. A number of delegates stopped in Lincoln today en route to Kansas City. Among the ar rivals w-ere National Committeeman Tomlinson, of Alabama; Cato Sells, del egate at large from Iowa and Albert McNeil, delegate from Tennessee. It is reported here that former Gov ernor Stone and Mr. Leseuer, of Mis souri, who are supposed to have the platform in charge, sent an agent to see Mr. Bryan and that the latter con sented to leave out a specific declaration for 16 to 1. This report can not be ver ified as Mr. Bryan refuses to affirm or deny it. TOWNE EXPECTS IT. Congressman From Minnesota Hopes - For Democratic Endorsement. Kansas City, Mo., June 3. Congress man Towne registered at the Coates House this morning, and to an Associ ated Press representative gave the f55 lowing signed statement "I am not crowding my candidacy for vice president in the ordinary way, and have canvassed no delegations. My friends rely upon the logic and policy of the situation, and expect the Demo cratic convention to nominate me." CHECK FOR A MILLION. Report That W. A. Clark Will Con tribute Heavily to Democrats. New York, June 30. City Democrats were talking last night of a report to the effect that W. A. Clark, the Mon tana millionaire senator, ex-senator and senator, had declared his intention of giving 1 million dollars to the Demo cratic national campaign fund. The report originated with a well known clubman, who is a Democrat and a per sonal friend of Mr. Croker. This man said that he met Mr. Croker in Europe, just before the Tammany boss sailed for home. He said that Croker was very jubilant over the prospects of Bryan's election and told him that Clark had promised to give Croker personally his check for 1 million dollars and that Croker was to have the privilege of turning it into the Demo cratic national treasury. JERSEY FOR SULZER. Democratic Delegates of the Mosquito State Express a Preference. Elizabeth, N. J., June 30. The Demo cratic delegates from Union county to the national convention at Kansas City, will start on Sunday and will be pronounced supporters, it is said, of Congressman Sulzer, of New York, for vice president. James E. Martine, one of New Jersey's "Big Four" is said to be a strong advocate of Sulzer, whil- City .Clerk Manning of Elizabeth, is outspoken for him. It is said that the New York congressman will get the votes of a majority of the New Jersey delegation on the first ballot. INDIANA DEMOCRATS Favor Shively if He Will Accept, if Not, They Are For HilL Kansas City, June 30. James Murdock, the advance guard of the In diana delegation said this morning that he could not state definitely the posi tion his state would assume on the vice presidential matter. "We are for Shively," he said, "if he will make the race, but I am not sure at this time that he will do so, and, in fact, I have heard nothing to give me the right to say that he is a candidate. I suppose that he would accept, but as yet, he has given no assurance of his anxiety for the position, Indiana is for him, of course, red hot, if he runs, and we think that he is as good a man 'as can be nominated for the place. If he falls to make the race, our state is for the man who, in our opinion, can poll the most votes, and, at hte present time I rather think that that man is David B. Hill. We have never been able to win without getting Indiana and New York, and the vice presiden tial nominee should come from one of those states. We thlnK Shively can carry Indiana without a doubt, and, if he is not placed on the ticket, Hill, who can carry New York is the best man in my opinion." Regarding the candidacy of Mr. Towne, Mr. Murdock said: "All I can say concerning Mr. Towne, is that we are for Shively. and then for Hill, if Shively does not run." MUSIC FOR KAN SANS. J. Mack Love Engages a Band For Their Headquarters. Kansas City, June 30. J. Mack Love of Arkansas City, Kan., chairman of the Democratic state committee, is at the Baltimore.

(Continued from First Fage. prohibition is also a bar to the progress of the state. The author suggests the following as a remedy for conditions: "The things to do are few. "First Kverlastingly clean out 'fusion.' "Second Repeal the alien laws. "Third Repeal prohibition. "Fourth Repeal confiscatory laws. "Fifth Do justice to non-residents. "Sixth Pass laws encouraging cap ital. "The now is our turning point. If we can not end Populism and Socialism in Kansas as political factors this presi dential year, then we might as well bid Kansas good-by and go, because we have Lost in nine years 5S4.000 population. Lost in nine years 178 millionsassessed valuation. And lost our share of emigration, 80, 000. "Forty thousand Republican majority in Kansas this year will beat 100 million bushels of wheat, 200 million bushels of corn and one million steers. "The writer has been in Kansas ev ery year for thirty-five years. He is tired. Oh, so tired. If the Populist party carries Kansas this year he will go back to Connecticut, where he was born, and say: 'Good-by, my lover, good by.' And there are others." Of course, Mr. Ware knows that his pamphlet will bring upon him much un favorable comment. The Republicans will criticise it, and the Populists will jump upon it. For howling calamity in this year of pride and prosperity for Kansas, he will be taken to task. He will probably answer those who call his pamphlet a wail, by saying that the Populists in howling calamity brought the real thing; but calamity has gone by in Kansas. The article is written in a racy and interesting style. It is not filled with dry statistics. Mr. Ware does not mean all that he says. He can not be driven back into Connecticut. He has not lived thirty-five years in Kansas in vain. He has found here both fame and gain; reaching the state poor, he is now rich. He is in a fimt which does an enormous business. He has reared a splendid fam ily; has a fine home in Topeka and a summer home in Colorado. He is really good-natured, happy and prosperous The state is full of such. There may be some statistics against us, but on gen eral principles we are all right. None knows this better than Mr. "Paint Creek" himself. il'KlNLEYATHOME President Arrives at Canton to Spend His Yacation. Canton. O.. June 30. President and Mrs. MeKinley reached Canton on a regular Pennsylvania train at 10:13 o'clock today and went directly to their home, the remodelled cottage in North Market street made famous in the cam paign of 1896 where they were greeted by the members of the citizens recep tion committee of '86, who had arranged the informal reception. The president paused on the porch in response to the calls of a vast crowd and said: "My fellow citizens: It is needless for me to say that we are very glad to get home again and to be with you and one of you as of old, and the pleasure is very greatly enhanced by the warm and hearty welcome which my old neighbors and fellow citizens have given me here this morning for which I most profoundly thank you all." It was just such a scene as was wit nessed every day of that campaign, and when the president said how glad he and Mrs. MeKinley were to get back to their old home and to receive so cordial a welcome from their old neighbors and friends, the cheering was as loud and as lusty and the enthusiasm as great as wnen tne crowds from all over the coun try came here in the first campaign. The reception was entirely non-parti san,, a welcome of friends to friends. It began as the regular Pennsylvania train appeared at the eastern limits of the city when a shrill whistle from one of the busy factories gave the sig nal. Instantly other whistles all over the city joined in the deafening refrain. At the same instant employes of the numerous shops along the railroad rush ed to the windows and with cheers and waving of hats and handkerchiefs wel comed the distinguished party. When the party left the train the eiti zens' reception committee of '96. wearing tne Daoges wnicn became laminar, tnen opened the way to the carriage. The president's private carriage took Mrs. MeKinley and her maid directlv to the Barber home. The president. Secre tary Cortelyou and other members of the party took landaus and were driven direct to the MeKinley home. The Canton Troop and the mounted reception committee of 1S96 led the way. the Grand Army band playing "Home, Sweet Home." What Canton did in welcoming the president, other cities did along the route to the extent of the opportunity afforded by the brief stops of a fast train. From daylight on there was an almost con tinuous ovation. Eig demonstrations were made at Alliance. Salem, Letonia, and other manufacturing towns along the line by crowds on the platforms and by work men i nthe shop windows. The presiden appeared on the platform and acknowl edeed the prreetines with bows and wav ing his hat. It was generally remarked that both the president and .Mrs. MeKin ley were apparently in excellent health. MAPLE HILL'S BIG CHURCH Money For Edifies Donated by Owner of Fowler Ranch. Maple Hill is to have a new church. which will be conducted after the manner of the Central Congregational church of this city. Some time aeo B. F. Fowler, owner the famous Fowler ranch, which is situ ated near Maple Hill, promised to build a church and parsonage to cost 50. ooo, provided the Congregational and Metho dist churches would combine and make one large church. Last Sunday the two churches decided to consolidate, and to conduct the new church as Kev. Charles M. Sheldon conducts his church in To peka. Mr. Fowler will erect the church as a memorial for his father, who died a short time aero in Liverpool. Kngland. Mr. Fowler also contemplates erecting an educational building. Colorado 1,500 Strong. Kansas City, June 30. The first mem ber of the sub-committee on arrange ments of the national committee to ar rive for today's meeting was Judge Adair W'ilson of Colorado. He says there will be 1.500 Colorado people in Kansas City during the convention, each eager for a ticket of admission. The Colorado Democratic club of Denver will come in a special train. There will be about 400 in this crowd and with them will be the Midland brass band, the members of which are dressed as Indians.

The best trade including the successful private wire houses, do not be lieve in the Price Current figures, but on the contrary unhestitatingly state that their private information warrants the conclusion that time will demonstrate that W. B. Snow of the Orange Judd Farmer is conservative in his estimate of 460 mil lion bushels of spring and winter wheat, and that the estimate will be reduced later, instead of increased. We note that R. G. Dun & Co. in their weekly trade review allege that sensible people will not believe in the northwest crop damage as reported by W. B. Snow, but it is well to remember that the Orange Judd Farm er has always been considered too bear ish and that his former figures have al ways been verified at the end of the crop year by commercial estimates. It is the "big bulls" who are talking dollar wheat, and not the small traders. The market is not overbought but on the other hand is, and has been, oversold, which leaves it in position to advance sharply on short covering or good buying. CORN Receipts are still running heavy and reports from crops are most fiatterina everywhere. There is plenty of corn in the invisible that is coming out to mar ket now that conditions are favorable for the growing corn crop. The best traders are selling on hard spots and conditions certainly warrant lower prices. OATS Oats are inclined to weakness In sympathy with fine orospects for corn. The price is pretty low, however, and not much chance of a material decline while there is plenty of room for an ad vance. PROVISIONS There was a setback of about 20 cents a barrel In pork, but at the decline there was good buying by the same interests that have been so success ful the past six months. We feel friendly to pork, and believe prices will go hierher. J. C. GOINGS. New York TJp-Town Gossip. New York, June 30. The stock market was disappointing yesterday to some over-enthusiastic speculators for an ad vance. Prices were normally higher and the dealings in the first hour were spirit ed. The final range of prices showed general advances irom tne previous day. and there was no evidence of important liquidation. Such a market one might assume would be satisfactory to the ordi nary speculator in the season of summer dullness. The movement of prices and the variations of board room sentiment are indications of how constricted are the present limits of speculation. . At the close of last week traders were feaful of a serious fall In price. The covering of shorts in the middle of this week cre ated expectation of immediate buovar.cv. Disappointment was experienced in both cases and the best that can be said to discourage bull speculators as the week is about to end is to remind them that the market has shown good rallying power in the face of conditions not ex actly conducive to enthusiasm. The best interests of the market and Wall streets interests in general are not subserved by indiscriminate prediction of advances in prices. The strongest and most conser vative financiers and railroad managers are certainly not anxious to create an extravagant speculation in securities. Market Gos3ip. Furnished by J. C.
