TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, TUESDAY EVENING. JULY 3, 1900. TEDDnTOUR. Distinguished New York Gov ernor's Triumphal Ride. Long Trip Through Kansas to Oklahoma City. CONTINUED OVATION. "Welcomed at the End by Over 10,000 People. Tried Not to Talk Politics But Couldn't Help It. Emporia, Florence, Newton and Wichita Enthusiastic. Oklahoma City, O. T., July 3. Gover nor Roosevelt's reception here where his Rough Riders are in camp, was flatter ing in the extreme and probably the warmest that has been tendered him in many a day. The Rough Riders in their Khaki uniforms were everywhere pres ent and all of them were shouting lusti ly for Teddy. Fully ten thousand people iwere gathered about the station and their voices went in unison in a great acclaim to the hero of San Juan, while the band played. "There'll be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight." A carriage completely draped with Amer ican flags was in waiting and Governor Roosevelt was prevailed upon to enter It and be driven to the new hotel Lee, where a short reception was tendered ihim, after which he returned to his private car for the night. The crowds in the streets were tremendous and everything looked promising for a lively time in this city of the plains today. LONGEST SPEECH AT EMPORIA. Emporia, Kan., July 3. Governor Roosevelt's speech in Emporia was the longest he had yet delivered during the trip to Oklahoma. The governor launch ed almost immediately into the subject of politics and this appeared to please his audience. At one time when he epoke of 16 to 1 a woman in the crowd became excited, threw her arms wildly In the air and shouted: ."We don't want 16 to 1 any more, and we wont have it." Gov. Roosevelt said at Emporia: "I am glad thafl should be making my first speeches since I was nominated here in Kansas, because it was your delegation that forced me to become a vice presidential candidate; and inas much as you are mainly responsible for me it is well that I should come here to speak to you. I once had the pleasure of knowing one of your citizens well the senator, Preston B. Plumb; and I now know well another of your citizens Wm. Allen White; and I have caught Mr. White on his way to the effete east and he is going to spend next Sunday ,with me at Oyster Bay. "Now, it was not my intention to say a. word about politics on this trip. But I don't know that I can very well help it. because this year the issues that are at stake on politics are those in which I believe with my whole heart and eoul; because, to me, the honor and wel fare of the country are at stake. "Now, why are you here today? Be cause you expanded over Kansas. (Ap plause.) In 1S03 this territory was acquired under the Louisiana purchase, and many good people of the northeast said it was perfect folly to buy this country 'we never could expand into it we ought not to take it away from the Indians who had it.' Well you went ahead; you did expand; and you are iiere now; and the sentiment against acquiring this territory is dead; exactly the same as the question whether we are to abandon the work that we did last year and the year before is a dead cjuestion. You sent ydur sons to the Phil ippines; your sons' blood waters the soil of these islands. The flag is there and it wont come down. (Applause). "Do you respect most the man who goes through life seeing if he can't have an easy time, or the man who sees his work and does it? You are trying to bring up your sons so that when they meet difficulties they shall overcome them, not shirk them. We must play our part among the great nations of the world ;and we must settle it whether twe shall play that part well or ill. We are going to put down brigandage and outrage and murder In the Philippines Just as sure as fate bar Just one thing. If the American people choose to go kitticorner next November you will have all the brigandage in the Philip pines that is possible. But it will stop, because the election will go straight next November; and we are going to in troduce in the Philippines the kind of liberty that follows and can only follow orderly administration of justice lib erty for each man to lead his life as he eees best, provided he does not wrong , Bis fellows. "And now I am tempted to speak about some questions of domestic in terest. The ice trust is quite an issue in New York. (Laughter.) I wont say anything on the subject of the ice trust until I see what is said about trusts in general at Kansas City. My fellow citi zens of New York are boiling over with enthusiasm against trusts in the ab stract, but owningallthe stock they can get of one trust in the concrete. I want to see whether they meet these ques tions fair and square at Kansas City or whether they straddle them. But it makes no difference how they stand; we will stand fair and square on all these questions. "I deeply appreciate the honor con ferred upon me in thi3 nomination, and I can requite you in Just one way, and that is by keeping faith absolutely with you. I will tell you nothing on the etump that I would not say off the stump; I will promise nothing that I iwould not try to make good after elec tion. And, if my words have any value, it depends upon what I have done in the past. (Applause.) "You remember last fall you were told that prosperity would never come to you until you had 16 to 1. Now pros perity has come to you by the work of your own hands. If this nation is allowed to go on as it has for the past three years we shall see such prosperity in this country as the sun has not WE SEIX OUR $2.50 AND SS.OO . COUPON BOOKS At a 5 Per Cent.

I appeal to you for. the sake of material prosperity, and in the "name of the honor and renown of America the good name of the nation I thank you. (Great applause.) "I was in the Twentieth cavalry," said a colored man at this point, stand ing near the end of the platform. "God bless you, comrade," said the governor. "I am glad to see you. Down in Cuba the Spaniards, called you 'Smoked Yanks.' You proved a mighty good kind of a Yank, too." At this the colored man smiled from ear to ear, and the crowd cheered. As Roosevelt finished, it was Miss Mary Stotler, daughter of the veteran editor Jacob Stotler, who did the neat thing of the day. Stepping forward, she handed Roosevelt one of the big tame sunflowers grown in their yard. As Roosevelt took it, it was then that he showed his line of teeth that the funny papers delight in picturing. At Topeka the Roosevelt party was joined by C. S. Gleed, E. F. Ware and a representative of the State Journal. Governor Roosevelt was very glad, in deed, to meet the lawyer-poet. He quot ed much from "Ironquill;" in fact, seemed to be able to repeat more of the rhymes of the "Paint Creek" poet than the author himself. "You should hear Mrs. Roosevelt," said the governor, smiling; "she can quote more of it than I can." TALKS TO FLORENCE CROWDS. Florence, Kan., July 3. Almost the entire population of this little city turned out late yesterday afternoon to greet Theodore Roosevelt, and hundreds had the pleasure of grasping his hand. The governor spoke briefly, referring to the presence in his former regiment of sex'eral Indians, graduates of the Has kell institute at Lawrence, Kan. "If we ever have another war." he said, "which I earnestly hope we will not, maybe I will have some Filipinos in my regiment. In any country that we ac quire we are bound to see that justice and orderly liberty obtains.. We cannot get away from our work in the Phil ippines. The character of the men whom President McKinley is tending to our new territories is a guarantee that the work will be done well men like Judge Taft and General Wood and Governor Allen of Porto Rico. We have got the wolf by the ears and we can't get away from these new duties. Now we must decide whether we are going to flinch or whether we are going to go on and finish this great work." LEAVES TRAIN AT NEWTON. Newton, Kan., July 3. Governor Roosevelt addressed an enthusiastic au dience of 2,000 in the Auditorium yes terday evening. It was the first time the governor had left the train since leaving Chicago, all nls previous speeches having been made from the rear platform of his private car. His address was alonsr the same lines as those delivered at Topeka and Emporia, touching upon the questions of imperi alism and silver. "You of the great west,' 'he said, "were told four years ago that you would not get prosperity without 16 to 1. But you did not get it and yet you look pretty middling prosperous. Now, when a man says you can't have pros perity unless you have something that afterwards proves to be (to put it mild ly) an error, don't you trust him any more. You cannot by legislation secure well-being. Foolish laws, laws that would disrupt our economic and finan cial system, would nullify the hardest work that Kansas could ever" do. No legislation will ever make the thriftless prosper. Now we have achieved pros perity; don't let us be fools enough to throw away what we have got." On the way back to his car the gov ernor was compelled to shake hands with hundreds of admirers, and one enthusiastic citizen shouted as the train pulled out: "We would like to keep you here, Teddy:" AT WICHITA. Wichita, July 3. Just before the Roosevelt special reached Wichita the train was stopped, and the official pho tographer secured a good snap shot of the three governors Roosevelt, of New York; Stanley, of Kansas, and Barnes, of Oklahoma standing oli the rear plat form. When the train reached this city Gov ernor Roosevelt smiled upon the biggest sea of faces he had looked upon since he left Topeka. The train was pulled beyond the station, and the many rail road tracks, entirely cleared of all cars, were densely packed between the build ings with a mass of people with their eyes upon the colonel of the Rough Rid ers. The crowd here was not only very large, but was enthusiastic. His speech was a brief one, followed by a frantic struggle on the part of everyone within reach to grasp the governor's hand. "These are the future rough riders," said the governor, as he wrung their hands. The governor was presented to the crowd by Mayor Ross, of Wichita. His address was short, and each of his telling points was followed by great demonstration of applause, particularly when he used the expression "Where the flag has been set up, the flag shall stay." Governor Roosevelt referred to the grounding of the battleship Oregon. "All over the nation," said he, "we are watching to see if the Oregon, shall get off the rocks." "We have got to do a part of the world's work," he concluded; "work that can be done only by the great world powers, and this young giant of the west is not going to stand and cringe as.it looks at the contest. Where the flag has been set up , there the flag shall stay (Applause) shall stay until a system of law and order is estab lished. TREE HOMES" DAY. Dennis Flynn the Hero at Second Day's Bough. Kiders' Reunion. Oklahoma, O. T., July 3. The "Free Homes" boomers were given a part in the "Rough Riders" reunion, the princi pal feature platform exercises being a speech by Dennis Flynn, territorial rep resentative to congress, who told of the homes legislation -which has brought cheer to 60,000 nresides.he said.Mr.Flynn also made a plea for statehood. In the afternoon at the fair grounds, 10.000 people witnessed a riding contest. The result was a tie between Bruce Dolan of Texas, and Ward Sies. of In flian Territory. Miss Lucile Muthall. an expert rider, attracted much attention. A prize for quick roping and tying of cattle was won by J. E. Merrill, of Round Rock, Texas, who consumed 5IV2 seconds. Last evening's entertainment consisted of fireworks and a spectacu lar exposition of the battle of San Juan Hill. The military ball last night was most brilliant event Oklahoma City ever wit nessed. A thousand of the brave and fair participated in the festivities. The Roosevelt Rough Riders Reunion asso ciation organized for the ensuing year as follows: President, Capt. McClin tock, B troop, Arizona: Capt. Fritz Mul ler, E troop, New Mexico. Vice presi dent, Lieut. John Greenaway. G troop, Arkansas; second vice president and secretary and treasurer, Chas. Hunter, D troop. Enid, O. T. Today the next place of meeting will be selected. Colorado Springs, Col., will probably be chosen. In weather like this a fellow doesn't mind getting the cold shoulder from a girl, but it would make him uncomfor table to get the mitten. MR. CROKER TALKS. (Continued from First Fage. live question of the hour, he added, is to get silver restored to its former nlace. where it would have the same rights as goia. "I don't care anything about the ratio or lb to 1, he said. "Get silver re stored," he added, "catch your hare first, then cook it. Regulate silver auto- matically and you settle the question. I sometimes think we have laid too much stress on 16 to 1. I am in favor of it, bur there are and must always be conditions which may change the ratio." Mr. Berry of Pennsylvania, inter rupted and asked if General Warner was not giving away some of the secrets of the platform. Before General Warner could reply Mr. Harvey asked him: "Do you un derstand tne history of free coinage?" General Warner replied without per turbation that he had made a study of it, ana he begged leave to say to Mr. Harvey and others that there had been no legal action taken by congress on the question of ratio. General St. John followed with an in terruption in which he said. "I say to General Warner that unless 16 to 1 is specifically mentioned in the platform of the convention to meet this week a tremor will run along the entire line, ana voters in the west, especially would desert the ticket by thousands. The statement received vigorous ap piause. Turning to those in front General Warner said: "Get your silver first. Don't make any more mistakes. When you get your silver we will fix the ratio. Interruptions followed with rapidity, and exceptions to the speaker's views became heated. Waiting a moment for quiett General Warner continued: " tell you the question of 16 to 1 is goin to-cut little figure in this campaign. The issue will be anti-imperialism and trusts and what we should do for humanity, and the question of ratio will sink Into infinitesimal insignificance. An excited speaker in the rear row shouted that if General Warner's ideas prevailed the party might as well tear down the flag of the campaign and that the election of McKinley would be in evitable. General Warner said he would not take up further time; all he said he stood by. Mr. Harvey leaped upon a table and repeating former statements, he added: "If the people do not in struct congress before election on the question of ratio, congress would never agree. And I stand here to say to you, t 1 "1. .' rv .'.'.1 ' ' 'V". . JUDGE ANTON B. PARKER, OF NEW YORK, Vice Presidential Possibility. pointing to General Warner, "16 to 1 has been demanded by our leader. Col. Bryan, and we will .follow his lead. H. A. Elias, of Buffalo, N. Y., was called and said New York Democracy had come to Kansas City to demand that 16 to 1 be specifically mentioned and nothing else would satisfy New York. A motion made to add General Warner to committee on resolutions brought out objections and General Warner settled the problem by declining to serve. A vote asking General Warner to ad dress the convention tomorrow at ten o'clock on the currency bill was unan imously passied and the convention ad journed until that hour. After the convention General Warner was waylaid at the entrance by many who had been present and some of them denounced him politically and in some instances personally. The outside pro test was as vigorous as that of the in side. Ex-Gov. St. John was the first speaker of the afternoon session, his subject being: "What Constitutes Money?" Re ferring to the convention on the Fourth the speaker hoped that there would be a new declaration of principles. He de manded that the free coinage of silver at 16 to 1 should be emphasized by the convention and nothing short of such an enunciation would suit the people. J. R. Sovereign of Arkansas spoke on "Monetary Reform." "The best money this ' country ever had," said the speaker, "was the sort that did not want to go away from home." W. H. Berry of Chester, Pa., spoke on "Freedom for the Workingmen." This wa3 to be the slogan of 1900, he said. Mr. Berry compared Mr. Bryan to Moses, as a leader. BATH HOTJSE JOHN- ARRIVES. Cook County Club Comes in With Banners Flying. Kansas City, Mo., July 3. The Cook county democracy, the marching club of the democratic organization of Chi cago, headed by Mayor Carter H. Har rison, and accompanied by Samuel Al schuler, candidate for eovernor, dele-gate-at-large; George A. Trude and a large number of the Illinois delegation, arrived in a special train over the Bur lington road todaj-. With the organiza tion was the Cook county democratic band of sixty pieces. The club, 400 strong, and headed by the band, formed lf t -, y ROBERT E. PATTISON, OF PENNSYL VANIA, Vice Presidential Timber. at the depot, and, with Mayor Harrison at their head, marched to the Midland. There the fun began. The band, sta tioning itself outside the hotel under the windows of the Tammany head quarters, serenaded the New York or ganization for nearly an hour and later became the guests of the New York or ganization. "The vice presidency?" said Alderman (Bath House John) Coughlin; "oh, we have no particular candidate, but we are ready for every thing from soup to finger bowls. The man the convention names is the man for us." OVATION FOR HILL. Pleads With the Hoosiers For Con servatism, and is Loudly Cheered. Kansas City. Mo., July 3. Mr. Hill went to the Indiana headquarters today and made a speech to the delegation. His remarks were general in terms but advocated conservative action as a means of democratic success. He was loudly cheered by the delegates, and as he passed through the crowd when re turning to his room there were many shouts of "Hill! Hill!" Interspersed with cheers. WASHINGTON DELEGATES Want Hama Lewis and 16 to 1 in the Platform. Kansas City, July 3. "We maintain that it is impossible to carry any western state with the silver issue in the back ground," said Delegate J. D. Medill, of Washington today. "We depend on our iusion allies tor party success in tne west and anything else than a flat declaration in favor of free coinage would not be listened to. That is practically the unanimous sentiment of the delegation. The Washington delegation held a cau cus tooay ana elected J nomas jviaioney chairman and W. H. Dunphy national committeeman. O. G. Ellis was chosen as member of the committee on resolu tions. The delegates decided to support James Hamilton Lewis for vice president and National Committeeman Dunphy will place him-in nomination. GOT AN EARLY START. Caucuses and Conferences by State Delegations. Kansas City, Mo., Ouly 3. Caucuses and conferences of the various state delegations began almost before the breakfast hour today. In many instances committee organizations were" completed and a number of the delegations took DAVID B. HILL, Who is Saying Nothing. final action on the vice presidency as the situation permitted. New- Jersey The entire New Jersey delegation arrived on one of the early morning trains and took up quarters at the Victoria The delegation held a caucus on the train before arriving and organized, naming Johnson Cornish as chairman. The delegation did not come to any conclusion in regard to the vice presi dency or the platform, although these subjects were discussed at some length. Florida The Florida delegation held caucus today and named C. Gibbons as member of the committee on resolu tions. It was decided to instruct him to work for the reaffirmation of the Chicago platform and against the inser tion of a specific plank calling for the t.atio of 16 to 1. Rhode Island George W. Green, of Woonsocket.. R. L., headed the delega tion from that state when it came into the' Baltimore hotel today. W e are for sixteen to one, he said. "but we are not in favor of forcing it too strongly. It dees us no good in the east if we do so and I do not think it will materially change chances of elec tion in the west. However, Mr. Bryan wants it, and I think the Democracy has a better chance to win with him on a sixteen to one platform than with any other man, or any platform, so we will have to let it go at that. The main thing is to have a Democratic victory and we will have to adopt the most logical means to that result. On the vice presidency we are for the candidate of the party, and we have not been long enough on the ground to form an opinion as to who that man may be." Georgia In our opinion, said J. J. Spalding of Georgia on the arrival 01 the delegation from that state today. "the proper thing for the convention to do is to reaffirm the silver plank of the Chicago platform. There are a great many good Democrats in the east who will not give the ticket their full sup port if the silver plank is made too strong, and there should be some con cession made to them, if it will help them to win out in November. From all we hear, however, I think that there is little doubt that a straight plank will go into the platform, regarding silver. Whatever Mr. Bryan wants will suit us. but we are willing that the matter should be administered mildly. We have not made up our minds as a delegation regarding the vice presidency, but any man who has the endorsement of New York and Indiana will do for us." TAIL TO POPULIST KITE. Pennsylvania Democrats Express Their Feelings After Seeing Bryan. New York, July 3. James Kerr, sec retary of the national congressional committee, and Former Congressman IJutchler returned from their visit to Lincoln this morning. Their mission was fruitless. Mr. Kerr said he found Mr. Bryan firm for a specific ratio dec laration in the platform and for the nomination of a candidate for vice pres ident who would be thoroughly in haf mony with the head of the ticket and the platform. Delegate fnangkr expressed himself very, emphatically on the situation. "The democratic party," said he, "will be the tail to the populist ticket and will be wrecked on the rock of J6 to 1." The Michigan delegation this morning announced itself as favorable to Towne for vice president. "We have passed resolutions saying that we heartily ap prove of his candidacy. On tne silver plank we are for reaffirmation." OVER A MILLIOIT. Mack Love Bases Majority on Ap plications For Tickets. Special to the State Journal. Kansas City, July 3. "We ought to carry Kansas his year by 1.000,000 votes. This was the announcement made to day by the chairman of the Kansas committee. I'm mKII "There are not that many votes In the state," suggested a reporter. "Wrong, as usual," said Mack Love. "You see," said Love, "my figures are based on the number of democrats who have written to the committee for con vention tickets. "The committee has received 507,293 applications. Some want one ticket; others ask fof anywhere from five to fifty. We figure that the average for each applicant is five, making a total of 2,536,465 people. Of course there are some republicans in this bunch, but ac cording to a careful estimate, based on the demand for tickets, we will have a million votes in Kansas." Some one quietly opened the head quarters door at the conclusion of this statement by the Kansas chairman. Ten minutes later the crowd was in a line, and with its elbows on mahogany, the various, individuals were answering questions put by a short-haired, white aproned man, whose principal vocabu lary is: "What's yours?" EXODUS FROM LINCOLN. Crowds of Visitors and Bryan Ad mirers Leave For Kansas City. Lincoln, Neb., July 3. The tide of Democratic humanity turned outward from Lincoln today, most of Mr. Bryan's visitors leaving on early morning trains for Kansas City. By tonight practical ly all will be gone, and to add to the exodus are 500 members of the Lincoln Democratic marching clubs. Congressman James Kerr, of Penn sylvania, the last man with a special mission to arrive from Kansas City, fol lowing closely on the heels of David B. Hiil, was as uncommunicative as his predecessor as to his visit and its ob ject. The impression gains ground that the Nebraska delegates are the author ized keepers of the Bryan secret and that his wishes concerning the platform and second place on the ticket if he has any choice of running mates, will be di vulged when the proper time arrives by the men from his own state. The wearing of Towne badges- by the Nebraskans at Kansas City has no sig nificance, outside of Nebraska. The coupling of the names of Bryan and Towne does not commit Mr. Bryan to the support of the Minnesotan but mere ly represents the views of the delegates themselves and is in repality a token of their desire to maintain the equilibrium of the fusion agreement between the Democrats and Populists of the state. They will support Mr. Towne partly be cause they like him as fit material, but largely from a Nebraska standpoint, because it is good politics. Should Mr. Towne, now classed as a Populist be nominated, the Democratic majority in Nebraska can ask a return of the favor of the Populist majority either at the fusion state convention the 11th of this month, or at some future time. The fea ture at Lincoln today is the departure for the convention city of a train load of enthusiastic supporters of Mr. Bryan from his own town. They include the Nebraska Traveling Men's Bryan club, who will carry all the brilliant colors that can be combined, the Bryan Home Guards, the Continental Guards and the Hagenow Military band. They go over the Missouri Pacific and will reach Kansas City tonight. Bryan will have few visitors today and will improve the opportunity to get all the rest he can preparatory to the crush which is expected in Lincoln at the conclusion of the convention. While Mr. Bryan has stated distinctly that he will not attend the convention, if the SENATOR JOHN W. DANIEL, The Virginia Orator. delegates before adjourning request his presence to address them it is hardly thought he will refuse. A NEW YORK ROW, Contesting Delegates Arrive From the Albany District. New York. July 3. Early in the after noon a cloud appeared in the New York delegation. The silver element from Al bany carried two of Albany's districts and had two votes in the other. They sent as delegates Judge Clute and T. W. Cantwell. Today there appeared on the scene Marsh Cohn and P. H. Mc Cabe as contestants, and the New York state delegation, it is said, will seat them. This will put the silver. men on the defensive, and they are to make a personal appeal to Senator Jones this afternoon for their seats. They will also contest before the contest commit tee. The silver men have selected John Boyd Thayer as the Albany elector and bring a letter from him, alleging that he was placed in a false position four years ago because of the acts of a per sonal friend and that he is for Bryan and free silver. The personal friend is alleged to have led him astray when he declined the governorship and is now an exile. His name is Louis W. Pratt. Mayor- James K. Maguire of Syracuse, just returned from Mr. Bryan's home, says: "Mr. Bryan is determined to have the Kansas City convention reaffirm une quivocally the Chicago platform. includ ing a declaration in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 without the consent of any other nation. The Chicago platform is to be endorsed in whole and in part, in letter and in spirit. "Former Senator David B. Hill had a long talk about the platform. Senator Hill wanted a modified platform and opposed a special plank reaffirming the Chicago platform, and endorsing silver. Mr. Bryan was courteous but obdurate and no concession whatever was grant ed the senator. Mr. Hill said that New York can be carried on a modified plat form. Notwithstanding his reverses at Lincoln, Senator Hill seems to be hope ful and in abundent good spiritis." Booming Kansas. Special to the State Journal. Kansas City, July 3. The Kansas man, without reference to his political faith, always makes an impression when he goes away from home. Kansas is getting more advertising than any state in the union represented here. Missouri, the home of the convention city, is in significant compared with Kansas. The Kansas badges are the biggest, Kansas signs are the neatest; the Kansans are among the well-dressed men at the con vention, and every man from the Sun flower state is a boom edition of infor mation. He hurrahs all the time for Kansas and the Kansas man with his numerous badges is a welcome guest at any headquarters. TWENTY INDICTMENTS Found Against Striking Street Car Men in St. Louis. St. Louis, Mo., July 3. The twenty striking street car men who were ar rested at the time of the trouble in front of posse barracks in Washington ave nue, June 10, when deputy sheriffs shot and killed several of their companions, have been indicted by the grand Jury. Each is held on three counts, all of which practically cover the same charge inciting a riot and rioting. With these indictments were probably a dozen oth ers growing out of the big street car strike. Policeman John J. Bridwell, of the First district, being charged in one indictment with oppression in office. Policeman Bridwell is the officer who arrested the wife of a member of the posse who had been stoned and assault ed for riding on a street car. Instead of protecting the. woman, he took her into custody, charging her with inciting a riot. No less than a dozen others are indicted for placing obstruction on the street car tracks. HANNA TISITS M'KINLEY For the Purpose of Discussing Cam paign Matters. Cleveland, O., July 3. Senator Hanna left Cleveland today for Canton where he will spend the afternoon in confer ence with President McKinley. Plans for the coming campaign will be dis cussed at length and the eexcutive com mittee selected by Mr. Hanna will be submitted to the chief executive for his "approval. LOCAL MENTION. Geo. W. Risser of Ottawa, Ohio, pros ecuting attorney of Putnam county, is visiting friends in Topeka. He will go to Kansas City tomorrow to attend the convention. A friendly suit was brought in the district court today by Mrs. Mary D. Holliday against Mrs. May Lillie Kellam to quiet the title to the property at 214 and 216 East Tenth street. Major A. M. Harvey will go to Kan sas City tomorrow to attend the Denvi cratic convention. Assistant Attorney Harry Bone and family returned this afternoon from Ashland, Kan. The janitors in the state house should clean up Representative hall; the gal lery needs dusting. The janitors are too busy talking politics. The Topeka City Troop will hold a special meeting Friday night. A majority of the delegates to the Silver Republican convention accom panied Chas. A. Towne to Kansas City this morning. Goldie Mowers, the 16 year old daugh ter of Jerome Mowers of Silver Lake, was operated on for appendicitis at the Stormont hospital Monday afternoon. Her condition was serious at the time of the operation, but it is thought she will recover. TODAY'S MARKET REPORT. Chjcago, July 3. WHEAT The wheat market during the forenoon was firm and active.

CORN Corn, aside from the strength derived from wheat, had some backbone of its own and enjoyed an active trade during the first half of the session. Liv erpool was strong and higher.

Commission Merchant, 112 East FiftU street, Topeka, Kan., receiver and shipper of grain. New York, July 3. This has been a typi cal holiday market so far with shorts do ing about all the business, covering short contracts over the holidays. There was hardly anything doing In the Industrials. Sugar and Brooklyn Rapid Transit being the only stocks traded in to any extent. The Grangers were strong, especially C, B. & Q. and St. Paul. Shorts in Missouri Pacific bought in some big lines nad that stock advanced gradually without a set back. This stock is entirely too high and soon as short covering is over should be sold for good profits. Balance of the list without feature. Grain Letter. WHEAT Liverpool cables came only a half penny lower this morning, which was not at all in sympathy with our. big break of yesterday. This started the' crowd to buying and they kept it up ail day regardless of price and finally suc ceeded in buying too much at the top, sell ing part of it out at a loss near the clos ing. It is only natural that we should get a reaction like this one, " especially after such a hard break, but we see nothing in the situation to cause any material ad vance and believe sales on such an ad vance as this will result In sure profits. Clearances were liberal and northwest receipts light, but acceptances were small and bids out of line. Everybody went over the Fourth even ed up pretty weli and there is nothing in the situation to cause violent changes from present quotations. CORN Shorts were covering all day forcing the market up over a cent a bushel. It looks like they have covered pretty well now and if such is the case corn ought to work lower. Receipts were liberal, nearly twelve hundred cars at Chi cago and prospects are they will increase or hold up pretty well for some time to come. OATS Oats are not strong and act like going lower. PROVISIONS There were only 14.000 hogs at Chicago and market lie higher at the yards. Packers were best buyers and traders the sellers. Believe pork will go higher. J. C.
