TOPEKA STATE JOUENAL, SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 21, 1900.
BUSINESS MEN REBEL. Kansas City merchants Are Angry Over Location of Federal Building. "Wyandotte county 13 likely to jump over Into the Populist column this fall unless a quarrrel over the federal building now In progress between the business men and the politicians is patched up. The people are in an up rising against the Republican politi cians claiming that they have been misused in the location of the new post office building. The Kansas City, Kan., chamber of commerce, an organization of business men sustained under a state charter Is the principal mover in this fight. The situation is thoroughly explained in a letter which is being sent out calling' attention to the methods by which "the treasury department at Washington lhas wronged and injured the merchajits and manufacturers and people of our city by ignoring their wishes, petitions and interests in the matter of locating the federal building which is to be rected here; and also to ask your as sistance in obtaining an investigation by congress. "A few political bosses, whose inter ests are at one end of the city, have thwarted the wishes of three-fourths of our business men over 500 firms and four-fifths of our citizens, by influenc ing the government officials to locate the postofflce building in their end of the town, where it will be forever out of the way for nine-tenths of the citi zens and business interests of the fu ture Kansas City, as it. is to-day for three-fourth3 of our present population and business interests. "Old Wyandotte, alone, without con solidation with old Armourdale and old Kansas City, could not possibly have secured an appropriation from congress for a public building. The three old cities combined were able to make a showing that secured an appropriation. Old Armourdale and old Kansas City do ninety-five per cent of the business of the city, and yet, in the selection of a location for the federal building, their wishes and petitions have been utterly Ignored. "This is a matter of great importance to Kansas City, Kan., and to the gov ernment itself. In the interest of the government alone, the matter ought to be investigated by congress and the location changed. "When government officials Intrusted with locating public buildings ignore Justice, facts, arguments and the wish es of the people, and consider only the MEN OF AFFAIRS Need Proper Food to Supply the Brain The "Medical Sentinel" comments on the restless brain worker of our large cities and refers to the fact til at toe thinks he knows as much about the needs of tfie brain, when he is tired and ehows brain fag, as a trained practi tioner. He is inclined to spur up the tired or gans by some stimulant or perhaps juiet it3 complaints with the narcotic of tobacco, and this plan goes on until suddenly he collapses, for brain fag is a. sure sign that the elements that com pose the brain are being more rapidly used up than replaced by the food. There is really a choice of but two pathways for an active brain worker a man of affairs when he shows symp toms of breaking down. Either he must iuit work or he must have food that will replace the structure of brain and nerve centers as rapidly as they are used up each, day. Chemical analysis of the particles thrown out . through the pores of the body shows that after continued brain work, a large portion of excreta con tains phosphate of potash. It is known that when this element is furnished by the food in proper quantities, the sys tem unites it with albumen and from that compound makes the gray matter that fills the nerve centers and the brain. This Is an especial feature of the food known as Grape-Nuts, a delicious, ready-cooked and predigested breakfast food. A definite and well understood gain in brain power and physical strength will pet in after Grape-Nuts have been used eight or ten days, and sustained and continued brain work caft be carried on If a reliance is placed upon the food in connection with the ordinary food of the day. Grape-Nuts Food is sold at all first ylfiSB groceries. - - Its use is economical and assures the most healthful and appetizing food.

The chamber of commerce wrote to the secretary of the treasury stating that the injustice of the location would be referred to the press and to con gress, to which H. A. Taylor, assistant secretary, replied by saying: "You will pardon me for suggesting that your letter containing the state ment that you will refer the matter to congress and the press of the country has had no influence whatever in de termining me to send another agent there. I must say that I think your statements are in exceedingly bad taste. Congress or the newspapers are not usually consulted in the selection of sites for public buildings. That is one of the functions of this department, and it is our effort to make such se lections as will best serve the Interests of the government and the people of the locality where a public building is to Le erected. There was no politics in the selection that has been made. I am not aware that any official or politician of any prominence even favored that site." GAY TIME FOR PERRY. Oklahoma Town Has a. Series of Amusements Planned. Perry, Ok., July 21. Among the im provements here now i3 a large school building to be under the charge of the Sisters.

Mains, of Jewell county, -who has been Identified with the Populists for sev eral years, visited Topeka Thursday, transacting business at the state house. Mr. Mains made no secret of his recent change of heaj-t politically, and says that he is this year in the Republican ranks and for the election of McKinley. "I have been working with the Bryan forces until a short time ago, but I am now with the Republicans, and propose to stay with them during this campaign. "I have had enough of the currency de preciation and anti-patriotism business in mine, and I have no desire to affiliate with a party which insists that -we take to our heels in the Philippines and op poses expansion, at the same time pro claiming that this country is not now prosperous. Times are away yonder bet ter now than they were when Bryan was prophesying financial disaster if he was not elected president. I do not believe that kind of stuff, so I joined a party which believes in the government and be lieves In maintaining it A DUKE FOR CHICAGO. Spanish Minister Will Attend G. A. R. Encampment.

The rebel leaders requested the con suls to use their good offices to effect an arrangement with the government by which the latter's force should meet them in battle outside of the city. On receipt of this letter the consuls met to discuss the matter. They re solved to appoint a committee, com posed of the American, English and French consuls, to confer with the governor and this committee laid the matter before General Alban, who is now in charge of the government. ' General Alban told the consuls that the forces under his command in this department would defend the city threatened by the revolutionary forces and would fight outside its limits. Part of his forces, he said, were already In convenient locations for meeting the enemy.

Tay lor of Wilson county were named as the congressional district committee to have charge of the campaign. The fusion managers are greatly alarmed at this . movement, believing that taking the socialist vote away from the Populist ticket in the Third district means success for the Republicans. Father Baker and Prentis. To the Editor of this State Journal. In one of the Prentis stories it is sta ted that Father Baker, so long as he was commissioner of the bureau of for restry, a sinecure of $1,500 a year, paid Prentis $100 a year for writing his re port. This is true except that Father Baker did not pay $100 for the services rendered by Prentis. Neither did Pren tis write Father Baker's report on for estry when he was commissioner. Fath er Baker in those days was no $1,500 a year man. His salary was $2,500. As to its being a sinecure, it may be ego tistical to state it, but it is true that most of the legislation on forestry for the past twenty years has been based upon and carrying out in part, at least, the recommendations made in that re port. I am free to say that Mr. Pren tis did advise and aid me to some ex tent in making my report on my work at the Paris exposition, but he did not charge anything for doing this. I hope that the statements about Mr. Prentis' receipts from others are not as errone ous as the one I have referred to. F. P. BAKER. X.a Guna Derelict. San Francisco, July 21.

Notorious Jointist is at Last Held But Appeals. Larry Sheehan who runs the Clipper restaurant has at last been found guilty of selling liquor. He was arrested July 10 and his trial came up yesterday even ing in the police court. The usual num ber of. witnesses who were troubled with weak and failing memories were pres ent, but there were present also two men who had clear memories and re membered distinctly that they had bought liquor and paid for it and were positive of the identity of the man who had sold it to them. Sheehan was sentenced by Judge Ma gaw to thirty days in jail and was fined $100. He appealed the case to the dis trict court. Sheehan has been tried sev eral times before but has succeeded in clearing himself in most instances. If Sheehan's conviction is followed by three or four more of the same class of offenders the law abiding element in the city will have cause for rejoicing. Larry Sheehan was a deputy under Sheriff Kepley and during part of the time was in charge of the prisoners at the county jail. It was while he was jailer that several desperate characters escaped CAUSE FOR WAIT. Will Be All Talk and No Bloodshed Republican Challenge. There is now a war on between the Populist and Republican state central committees. A week ago the Populist committees announced a list of over 3,000 names of men who had deserted the Republican party this year, since last November, to become identified with, the cause of silver and Bryanism. The Republican committee had been making some pretensions in this direc tion and the journey along the same line b ythe two committees caused a clash Now the Republican committee has posted the following: "The Republican state committee will pay to the Populist state committee $1, 000 for the list of over 3,000 names of men who have deserted the Republican party for the party of anti-imperialism, provided that the said Populist state committee will furnish acceptable proof that one-tenth of this list contains gen uine changes." Now the Populist committee is mad and says the Republican "slush fund is getting into the game early," but the Republican proposition remains unac cepted. GOULD SELLS HIS YACHT. The Atalanta Goes to Colombia to Be come a Gunboat. New York, July 21. Mr. George Gould has sold the steam yacht Atalanta, through Messrs.

The Atalanta is a famous boat and the sale takes from the New York Yacht club's steamer fleet one that is quite as well known as any that has ever car ried its flag. She was built by Messrs. W. Cramp & Son, of Philadelphia, for Jay Gould, in 18S3, and upon his death became the property of George J. Gould. ARE STILL TALKING. Flan to Erect Baptist Tabernacle Not Abandoned.

Farsons Populist No Longer Takes Interest in Agricultural College.

Mr. "Vrooman is, according to the records of the governor's office a mem ber of the board, but since his associ ates are against him, and by a big ma jority, Mr. Vrooman does not take the prominent part in the affairs of the col lege that he did during the administra tion of Governor Leedy.
