Republicans II Ml a EeTiral Meeting at Portsmouth. Portsmouth. O., Oct. 13. Mr. Bryan concluded the first day of his campaign ir. Ohi- in this city last night. He was met at the station by a torch light pro cession, consisting- of men both on ft ani horseback, and escorted to a square 23 the center of the city, whet1? he spoke f.'oni a platform in the open air. The meet:.-? was by far the largest of the day ani it was thoroughly enthusiastic. The Republicans also had a torch light J r-" i in the city with speeches in apubho- hail by Senator Spooner and W. D. Byr.um. As a cor.se-iuenoe the city was fu-.l of red fire and political ra tnusiasm. The lines of march of-the two parties were sc. arranged as not to con rict and there was c physical clash. A majority o-f the meetings during the day were not so laj-eiy attendei r.or dt-monstrativ as those of the Illinois und Indiana tour of last week. Rain threatened during the greater part of the day. and this circumstance doubtless ita i a dampening- influence on the ardor cf the crowds, as weii as upon their at tendance. When Mr. Bryan was introduced at Fprin.;5id. where he had one of the best row-is of the day. some enthusiastic admirer i the crowd shouted: Hurrah for the farmer p-resient." The exclamation attracted Mr. Bryan's attention, and he said: "I do not want to be elected under false prefr-ses. I am not a farmer: I am an agriculturist. You know the dif ference between them. A farmer is a man who makes his money on the farm and sper. is it in totm. while an agri culturist is a man who makes his money in town and spends it on the farm." This dhnit!'-a pleased the audience, end all listened attentiveiv to the speech thro-asho.jt. At this pofnt Mr. Bryan devoted his principal attention to the trusts, ad his arguments were along the usual lines. At Layton the meeting was held at the fair grounds, and Mr. Bryan spoke from an open stard erected on the race course. Probably the most interesting feature of this Eti-? was the fact that out f.i a hundred vice presidents of the raeerin twenty-Jour were German, and tuner as Republicans or Ooli Demo-rata opposed Mr. Bryan's election four years nz'y. One of them was aa ex-mayor of the city. In intredtrcin? his speech at Dayton Mr. Bryan charged the Republican party Tcith using spurious argument to catch particular classes cf voters. As to the claim that the interests of the soLiiers safest in the care- of the Republican tarry. Mr. Bryan said: "The soldier is in mora danger if his i Interests are left to men who stand at 1 n head cf great monopolies than he is I 1. he leaves his interests to those who bI'T g to the common people, I will go further than that: I will sav that the welfare-,-; the union soldier and his pen sion are ?afr in the hands of a con federate soldier than in the hands cf a rreat monopoly, for the conf ed-rate sol dier krows something about the sacri fices cf war. while the heads of svn-ii-"it only know war as an opportunity for the accumulation of Tat fortunes out cf the pe,Pie-3 sufferi'ngs. But, my friends. the Republicacs insult the sol dier when they assume that the sol dier is not a citizen as well as a pen sioner. He insults the soldier when he assumes that a soldier has no interest except in tae amount of his monthly or Quarterly pension. "The soldier is a citizen. He was a citizen dance the war. when he was willing to risk his life a ni3 nation s defense. He is a citizen cow and if he i willing to fight to have one renub'ic instead of two he will be willinsr to vote row to keep that one republic from be coming an empire. If he was willing to fight then in order to wipe out of the Teclaration of Independence an excep tional clause that excluded the black man, he will be willing to vote now to fceep anotherr excepti'Xial clause from being put into the declaration excluding the brown man. The soldier who did cot believe that the black man ouht to Si n ;t Oi r! iff own accord, and in his own way, of Ds. Caldwell's Syrsp Pepsai: 1 Jit 1. Ajfc4 4, be sold for a thousand dollars will not be in favor of buying Filipinos in, a job lot at two dollars and a half a piece." Mr. Bryan defined his feelings about his own election, saying: "I am more interested in the result of this election as a citizen than I am as a candidate. I am more interested as a father than I am as a Democrat. I can live under a Republican administratioi. better than most Republicans who vote for the administration. If I can make half as much as the Republicans say I can I can make more criticising the ad ministration than you Republicans can make under it. If my farm does as well as the Republicans say, I could live or. my farm and I wiil not need office. "The president says in his ietter of ac ceptance that you must be careful not to hurt the good trusts and spends more time warning you not to hurt the good ones than he does teiiingyou how to hurt the bad ones. The Republican candi date for vice president spends more time denouncing those who denounced the trusts than he spends denouncing the trusts. But why sneak of what the president says? Why speak of what the candidate for the vice presidency says, when I can quote you authority from headquarters? Mr. Hanna says there are no trusts. Do you think that the P.epu'oiican party is going to destroy the trusts? "When election day approaches the trust magnate says: 'Weil, we will wait and see how you vote before we will teli you whether we will give you your daily bread or not.' "Do you believe that it is safe to have that condition in this country? 13 it safe to make it possible for these great mo nopolies to so control the laboring men that they can threaten them with idle ness and starvation if they do not vote the Republican ticket. Suppose a man has spent a life time learning some par ticular industry and there is but one man in, the cation to whom he can apply for employment, if the industry is built up and a monopoly established. Then if he be turned off he loses the benefits of his skill. He is an outcast and must learn over. The duress that that mo nopoly can place on that man is a duress that ought cot to be supported in this country." During the afternoon Mr. Bryan made ten-minute speeches at Xenia. Wash ington Court House, Greenfield and Waverly. While Mr. Bryan was speaking at Greenrieid he was interrupted by an elder: y man in the crowd who asked a question about race discrimination in North Carolina and then partially dis appeared behind other peopie standing near him. The inquiry seemed to stir Mr. Bryan considerably, and he replied with some warmth, saying: "Don't hide. I wan t you to stand where I can see yon when I answer your question. Now, let me tell you that an educational qualification has been im posed upon Porto Rico by the Republi can administration which disqualifies S3 per cent, of the colored men of voting age in that territory." The old gentleman retorted that he did not believe the statement, where upon Mr. Bryan continued: 'Weil. I can show you a bulletin Is sue! by your own administration as re cently as the 2Sth of last August, in which it is stated that S3 per cent- of the colored population can not read and write. And this educational requirement deprives that percentage of the people there of the right of franchise. Do you know what percentage i3 affected by the North Carolina law? I can tell you that it is a good deal smaller percent, than that affected by the Porto Rico restrict ion. Don't you think you had better re prove your own administration for its acts in Porto Rico before you complain of North Carolina?' Mr. Bryan began his speech at Ports month at 8 o'clock, and he had no sooner commenced than a bugie call was sounded upon a housetop across the street. There were other noisy demon strations and it looked for a time as if there were to be unfriendly interrup tions. Mr. Bryan caught the situation promptly, and said: "Perhaps this is simply a touch of militarism." This turned the laugh of the crowd upon the bugler, and he was heard no more for the time, though he sounded his h--m at intervals during the entire evenin-e. Mr. Bryan spoke for about an hour at Portsmouth, and at the close of the meeung left for Chiliicothe.

Eaising Contention Tariffs and Fighting Scalpers. O SLIPSHOD MANNER W. J. Black Sajs Convention Bates Mare Been Handled. Stories of, the Eailroad From Far and Near. Passeng-er and ticket men from all over the United States will gather in Buffalo, N. Y., next Tuesday, October IS, for the purpose of attending the forty-fifth annual convention of the American Association of General Pass enger and Ticket Agents. Every indi cation points to a record-breaking at tendance and to the accomplishment of work which will be of benefit to the asso ciation. Upon the docket are several subjects of importance for discussion. The proposition of C. E. E. Usher, of the Canadian Pacific, that "no convention rates be made less than fare and one third between January 1 and August 31 in each year' is one of them. In the matter of ' antl-scalping legislation, which was left last year in the hands of a standing committee, composed of the chairmen of the several territorial pass enger associations, and on the topic in general interesting developments axe an ticipated. W. J. Black, general passenger agent of the Santa Fe. said these might be called the leading topics before the con vention. As to the proposed return to the old standard of convention rates, which would be a raise in comparison with the prevalent one-way tariffs, Mr. Black said: "It is an important question. Of late convention tariffs have been handled in a very slipshod manner by the railroads. There should be more stability put into convention rates. But you see the boom ers go to the passenger officials, and say they wiil attract from MO to 5.000 dele gates and visitors, and if they muster 200 it is doing weiL "However, any action taken by the general passenger agents at Buffalo would not be final or binding. It would be merelv advisory. They can only re fer their conclusions on the subject back to the several territorial associations. Of course their conclusion would have the weight of a recommendation with the several associations." Mr. Black left today for Buffalo to at tend the convention. SOiaCITOE'S CAS. BEVAJSPED. Santa Fa Workmen Transform It Into an Airbrake Instruction Car. Car No. 101 of the correspondence school of Seranton. Pa. is undergoing transformation in the Santa Fe coach shopi When this car came to Topeka two weeks ago it was merely a solicitor's car, with limited equipments for the claaa of railway instruction. When it leaves the shop next week it will be as a fully equipped airbrake instruction car. The interior of the car is being wholly remodeiied. A full complement of air tanks, tubes and valves, and an air eorn- presser is set up in tne main compart ment Thev reDiesent. with full power. the air attachments of a locomotive and ten cars. With this practical object lessons are given to railway men. They see the full operation ngnt oeiore tnem. There are also working sectional models showing the inside workings of the mechanisms. A miniature locomotive, in full gear, also has a place amongst the models shown. Classes are shown by practical ex ample. With this car heretofo,re illustra tions of lessons have been by stereopti con. The school has six instruction cars on railroads in various points of the United States and Canada. This one, assigned far the present to the Santa Fe, is La charge of C. B. Holloway, M. E. WEALTHY C03S!2I03r LABORER Millionaire's Son Rousting It On a Railroad Survey. Bertrand Bell, a graduate of Harvard university, who speaks haif a dozen lan guages and who can. write his check for a million dollars, is one of the toilers with the surveying corps on the Balti more & Ohio Southwestern railroad.near Lebanon, 111. He works as hard as any member of the corps and lives in the camp with his fellow-workmen. He re ceives $1.50 a day for his work. Bell's father, who is dead, was a direc tor of a number of large railroad cor porations, including the Baltimore .4 Ohio Southwestern. He left an estate which has been variously estimated at from $1,000,000 to $3,000,000. all of which was inherited by young Bell. The young man is an interesting char acter. He does not talk of his wealth, although it is known to his comrades that he was a millionaire's son and that he spends each week a sum far in ex cess of the wages he earns. Bell gradu ated from Harvard several years ago. He was a member of the famous Peary relief expedition, and is greatly inter ested in the collection of archaeological and geological specimens. He is a mem ber of several societies for scientific re search. Shortly after the death of his father young Bell came w-est to learn survey ing. He did not wish to stand around and watch how things were done, so he willingly doffed his fine clothes and as sumed the garb of a workingman, de termined to learn the business from act ual contact with it. He handles a pick or a shovel when necessary with equal facility of any man in the camp. One cf his striking peculiarities is that bfe does not wear a hat except in the most extreme weather. Bell seldom misses a day'3 work. He is especially prompt on payday and pock ets his $18 for the month's work with as much pride as a small boy, who has just earned his first quarter. Bell recently went to St. Louis without first doffing his working ciothes. When he applied at one of the leading hotels for a room the clerk was considerably surprised, but at the sight of the large roll of bills, which Beli produced, he Quiciily recovered his composure. FOR SANTA FE EHPLOTES- Free Scientific Lectures Newest Pro ject In Educational Line. Scientific lectures, profusely illustrat ed and free of cost to employes and the public, is the newest project of the Santa Fe management to provide educa tion and entertainment for its employes. The plan is an outgrowth of the reading rooms established by the road some time a-i-o at important points along the line. The lectures are in charge of Superin tendent Busser cf the Santa Fe reading rooms, and he has just reported to Vice President Paul Morton on a series of five lectures recently given under the auspices of the company. The plan was to give the lectures ocly in remote Places, where the employes and their families would not be in a position to avail themselves of lectures of that char acter. During the last month Mr. Bus ser arranged for five lectures at remote places on the line by B. R. Baumgardt, secretary cf the Astronomical Associa tion of Southern California. The places chosen were Gallup and Raton in New Mexico, Dodge City, Kas., Woodward, Okla., and PurceU, in the Indian Terri tory. The canals on Mars, the craters of the moon, the satellites of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and many other interesting phenomena of the boundless expanse were shown to men who spend their days in making embankments for new lines, running fast engines and breaking on the top of freight cars. In the smaller places the musical portion of the enter tainment was provided by the em ployes. Besides the music, the pictures and the lectures there was always a talk by Mr. Busser on "Undeveloped" Re sources." In the talk he- tried to incite the employes to better themselves and their condition by striving to make tha most of their opportunities. The lec tures concluded with a social reunion of the employes and generally a dance Commenting upon the results ob tained. Mr. Busser advises that the lec tures be thrown open to the public upon the theory cf benefiting the patrons of the line, thus developing contentment with locality and will to build and grow that will, ia the end, benefit the com pany. sxrpT. ticits good record. Hour Ha Built Two Kile Pipe lane Tnrougii Quicksand. Wellington, Oct. 13. Mr. H. A. Tice, superintendent of the Panhandle division since February 1 last, and v ho goes to the Oklahoma division in place of D. Jj. Bailey, has made an enviable record on this division. During the eight months' there nave been lis bridges rebuilt and a number of new side tracks laid at various points More stock was handled last spring than any previous year. Some of the stock yards have been enlarged. A new 43 foot steel water tank at Wellington was erected. The greatest Improvement, and one which revolutionizes the water supply at Woodward, was the building of the two mile pipe line, which runs from two miles north of Woodward-to the pump ing station at Woodward. It passes under the North Canadian river. One mile of this line was built under condi tions very seldom met with. It was laid on an average of five feet deep through quicksand Water was struck immed iately under the sod. making it neces sary to build supports for the bank on either side and at both ends of the trench and keep twoenginespumping ail the time. At some places the trench had to be built nineteen feet deep. Not a derailment has occurred on the main lines nor has there been a wreck. Oniy one life has been 'ost and that was of a brakeman on the Hutchinson & Southern. Mr. Tice leaves this division with the good will and highest esteem of all who have had his acquaintance. R, R. 7.

Judge Caldwell has recovered from his recent illness caused by eating rhubarb pie, and has again reported for duty. Devorraux, the engineer, who was in the same condition, has also recovered sufficiently to be able to be on the streets again. Ben Powell, of the blacksmith shop, is swelled up to a certain degree over the fact that he is, or soon will be, the possessor of a new private office. It i said he will appoint Harry Taylor his private secretary, and will teach him to be a stenographer as soon as possible. Utterback and Forgy are said to have been on a fishing excursion recently, and fai'ing to land any of the finney tribe with a hook and line, tried hypno tism, which proved successful. It is said that Utterback succeeded in mak ing several bass swim right into a gunny sack. Engine 913, another one of the big fellows, is in the hospital for extensive repairs. A. G. Werries has again resumed his position as day car clerk. He has been enjoying a month's vacation, and re sumes work with a vigor that puts the other employes cn the jump. Machinist Charles Mott is in the city from Springfield. Mo., where he is em ployed by the Frisco road. He will remain in Newton visiting his family several day3 before resuming his posi tion. Brakeman Flcyd Arnold, who has been officiating on the Oklahoma division of the Santa Fe for some time, has re turned to Newton and will take bis po sition on the extra board of the ifiddie division.

President Epworth League, also President Loyal Temper ance Legion, and wife of Dr. C. D. Powell, of Chehaiis. Wash., was for several years afflicted with that peculiar form cf chronic catarrh pervading the whole system, involving the stomach, liver, and kidneys. It is to this form of catarrh that Dr. Hartman has for a long time been calling the attention of the medical profession. It is known as systemic catarrh. Peruna seems to be the only specific for this phase of catarrh yet devised by the medical profession. In a recent letter to Dr. Hartman, Mrs. Powell says: I have found Peruna to five satisfaction in cases of Indigestion, com plication of liver and kidney troubles, and it is one of the finest tonics I know of for a worn-out system. I have used several remedies in cases of severe colds and ia grippe, but none I consider of more value than Peruna.

SACK OF LAWRENCE. Massacre Discussed In a Blooded Manner. Cold Claim That They Hare Been Woefully Maligned. Oak Grove, Mo., Oct. 13. A combina tion of three circumstances made this the biggest day in this town's history. They were the street fair, the reunion of Quantrell's men. and the presence here of Frank James. And the greatest of these, like charity, was the last. The reunion of Quantrell's men brought here forty-three of the grizzled old chaps who went to Lawrence after Jim Lane, and, failing to find him, burned the town. They, with Tip Hay3' camp of confederates, whose guests they were, added much to the irr.portar.ct of the oc casion. They wore red badges: the con federates wore white ones, and many of each still wore clothes of their beloved grey. Nearly ail showed plainly the signs of age. their beards, w hich almost all wore, were streaked with gray, and their forms were somewhat bent -with the weight of years. But still they were a hearty and hale set of old fighters, and they were exceedingly glad to be to gether again so near to where they made the start for the sack '-f Lawrence. And there was Frank James not the Frank James that most folks know, but the man among his friends, the jolly, genial comrade, who greeted every one with the greatest cordiality and never failed to remember something of him. his family or his history. It was Frank James as he would have been, had he wrought no such history as he made: Frank James as he would have been If he had been a regular soldier, not a guerilla, a peaceful citizen, not an, out law. It was as if he had jumped in one bound from the time cf the war to the present, leaving behind ail the mem ories of the James boys' days. He was a new figure and as such he was greeted. And that's why Frank James was the center of the crowd, the cynosure, the euest of honor. James came here from St. Louis as the guest of Quantreii'3 men and they were mighty proud of it. And they immediately put him up on a pe destal and made him an object of wor ship not because he was a bandit and a train robber in later days, but because he was a guerrilla like themselves be fore then; because he would not submit to what he deemed unwarranted author ity; because he defied the laws they has tened to observe, and lived for years af ter peace w a3 declared in open outlaw ry tinder the government they r.ad fought yet had sworn to support. And so they made of Frank James a hero for what he represented to them- not for the deeds which male his name a terror to railroads all over the land. " This part of Jackson county Is filled with memories of Quantreil and his raiders. Many of that band came from hereabouts and most of the survivors live around here now. They have never been "reconstructed" in their heart of hearts and they never will be. Tby are not ashamed that they fought under the black flag of that proscribed band; thev are proud of it, and instead of speaking of it in whispers, they hold up thir heads with much feeling and wear badges to advertise their membership. They are hardy, honest and d-ceintrthey love the memory of their leader and re vere him; they have thi strongest of ti to bind tfc-m each to each, they shed blood in a cause that is lost and they have been, according to themselves. woe fully maligned. This latter fact makes them reticent, even today, but once in a long time, one of them will break forth and give utterance to the faith that is in hirn and then one learns, in no un mistakable terms, what a Quantreil man thinks cf his leader, bis mission and himself. One of tne old chaps. Hi George did "cut Ux-se" today, and this is what he said: "They say of us that we pit f.re and blew smoke from our noetnls. We did. Ve were terrors. But we had to be; we were fighting Jayhawkers. Ever read about Jencison'3 Jayhawkers? Those were our enemies. "We raided Lawrence; we did Just what we went there to do, except kill women and children we never did that. I don't care what they say we never did. Quantreil always told us that we should not fcarm the women, children or non-combatants. With a soldier, fee said 'twas ci.Terent. "We went to Lawrence partly to get Jim Lane, but we also went for revenge. The Jayhawkers from there had been raiding down our way; they killed my father and burned my mother out of house and home, and everyone else al most can tell of near kinfolks who were slaughtered by them. We went to get even with them. And we did." That's the way the old chaps talk. They are neither proud nor ashamed of their course. They say it was a neces sity of the times. Quantreil organized his men for the Lawrence raid only a mile and a half south of here. They went to Columbus. Kas.. for rendezvous, and after their work at Lawrence they struck out south. Then came the Bax tex Springs row, and they moved on Into Texas, and the band went to pieces. Some joined the regular confederate army; some came back: some went to Mexico with Joe Shelby. FORT SCOTT STREET CARS. They May Be Running Ag-aia by XTo vember 1. Fort Scott. Oct. 13. On November 1 Fort Scott can again boast of a street railway system, the city council, at a special meeting, having given Grant Homaday a five years' contract for fur nishing the street light from the same plant, thus enabling it3 operation with out loss to the company. The new company which has bought the plant has not yet been organized, but associated with Mr. Hornaday in tho venture are St. Louis and Davenp-t people. The plant was held at $ T,000 when Mr. Horp.aday finally obtained an option on it. The only object was to ob tain a lighting contract from the city at a rate reasonabie enoueb to Jusri.'y a purchase by the railway line. The company will be formed and corporation papers obtained at once. The plant w ill be equipped with new modern machine ry, both for street car and light service, and the power house, cars and tracks wiil be thoroughly overhauled. It will cost $.:. "00 more to equip for street lighting and repair of the railway lin-.s. The lihtinsr contract becomes effective March 1, IjoL ACCOMMODATING JUDGE.

They were told that the judge was out of town, but some one sugjjsted that Judge McBride could do it. This was a happy thought.
