Financiering the Oriental Rail
way In Kansas.
Wichita and Sedgwick County
Asked to Vote Bonds.
Would Rival Santa Fe
Southern Pacific
Through the St. Paul Linking
Chicago and Pacific Coast.
Representatives of the Kansas City
Mexico & Orient railroad, who have
charge of securing- bonds in Kansas and
right of way in Oklahoma, have begun
their work. "Billy" Edwards and John
Eaton, of Kansas City, acting in that
capacity appeared before the commis
sioners of Sedgwick county at Wichita
today, asking $110,000 bonds for the
Oriental railway. As proposed by them
the Wichita corporation is to give $30,000
and the county of Sedgwick $S0,000.
It is now said that the Orient road,
when completed, will connect at Kansas
City with a Chicago line and the St.
I'aul is mentioned. The same financial
interests back of the Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul are understood to be actively
interested in Mr. A. E, StiKvell's big
scheme, which means through connec
tions ultimately, and transcontinental
een-ice between Chicago and the Mexi
can coast of the Pacific. A connection
between the St. Paul and Orient roads
would establish a transcontinental route
rivaling those of the northern lines and
the Sar.ta Fe and Southern Pacific in
the south.
An important meeting of the directors
of the tiuardian Trust company, which
Is financiering the Orient railway, will
be he!d in Kansas City on October 24.
Questions pertaining to the new road
will be discussed and matters of im
portance passed upon. Mr. Stilwell will
probably make a report of the progress
already made on the Orient line. Such
a report will state that dirt is flying
along the route in Kansas, Oklahoma,
Indian Territory and Texas, and the re-

of the many dangerous
wild plants and shrubs.

and innamnaation with in

soon disappears, the suf

almost as toon as the little blisters and
pustules appeared the poison had reached
the blood, and will break out at regular
intervals and each time ia a more aggra
vated form. This poison will loiter in the
system for years, and every atom of it
must be forced out of the blood before you
can expect a perfect, permanent cure.
Nature's Aitiote

Ivy, and ail noxious plants. It is com
posed exclusively of roots and herbs. Now
is the time to Ret the poison out of your
system, as delay makes your condition
worse. Don't experiment longer with
salves, washes and soaps they never cure.
Mr. S. M. Marshall, bookkpr of the Atlanta
(Ga.) Gas Light Co., was poisoacd with Poison
Osit. He took Sulphur, Arsenic and various
other drugs, and applied externally numerous
lotions and salves with no benefit. At times the
swelling: and inflammation was to severe he was
almost Dlind. For eight years the poison would
break: out erery season. Hia condition was much
improved after takinjz cue bottle of S. S. S., and
a few bottles cleared his blood of the poison, and
all evidences of the disease disappeared.
People are often poisoned without
knowing when or how. Explain your case

Advance In Oil and Heavy Traffic
Shows Effect on Santa Fe.
Statistics on the cost of lubricating
engines per thousand miles run on the
Santa Fe show some very interesting fig
ures. Computations made since June,
1S95, show the average monthly cost to
have been $130.8 in 18S5, $112.2 in 1896,
$121 in 1897, $127.3 in 189S, $149.1 in 1S99,
and up to September in 1900, $166.7.
The figures for the first eight months
of the year have been January, $150.5;
February, $157.3; March, $162.1; April,
$168.1; May, $166.3; June, $165.5; July,
$177.2; August, $1S4.5.
In May, 1S97, the cost of lubrication
was cheapest, being $105.9.
Cost and Design of the Twenty New
Locomotives Soon to Be Bought.
The new engines to be ordered by the
Rock Island road within a. few days
will cost about $320,000 and will weigh
175.000 pounds each. The driving wheels
of the freight locomotives will be sixty
four inches in diameter, and those of
the passengers will :e seventy-eight and
a half inches in diameter. They will
have twenty-inch cylinders. The tenders
will have a capacity of 5,500 gallons of
water and ten tons of coal. The last of
the previous order for twenty-two en
gines will be received in a few days. This
additional order for twenty will make a
total of forty-two bought by this com
pany within less than a. year.
Building Tanks Here For California
Line's Transformed Locomotives.
The use of fuel oil by the Atchison, To
peka and Santa Fe on the Southern Cali
iornia line has given such continuously
satisfactory results that all locomotives
on the San Francisco & San Joaquin Val
ley railway are being converted into oil
burners. Needles are also being changed
to oil burners, and at the conclusion of
the year Dm, coal will not be used as a
fuel for locomotives upon any of the
Santa Fe lines in California.
The Santa Fe has acquired oil lands
near Fullerton, where it has several wells
in successful operation .and has built a
spur 4.24 miles in length to reach the oil
fields, which also produce a considerable
tonnage of oil shipped from other wells.
Other oil fields have been developed in the
vicinity of Bakerslield and Fresno.
Several large reservoirs to hold fuel oil
are being built at the shops here for
these engines. The tanks fit in the coal
space of an ordinary tender.
Neighbors Engage In a Deadly En
counter In K. C.
Kansas City, Oct. 15. Yesterday Jas.
Lyons, a saloonkeeper at the corner of
Twelfth and Genesee streets, quarreled
with a neighbor and fellow tenant, Chaa
Gandy, and killed him with a brick.
They lived together in the separate parts
of a double building at that place. Lyons
claims his action was in self-defense.
A fire occurred in the Gandy house
hold yesterday morning and they were
preparing to move out of the building
to live' with friends until their home was
again habitable. Someone told Lyons
that Gandy was about to carry away
two cheap pine doors, which were fix
tures of the place. Lyons went in to see
about this and the two quarreled about
the doors.
Gandy was a carpenter. "With him at
the time of the tragedy were his wife
and George Dwitt and John Welch.
Lyons came around from his side of the
house and knocked. The door was open
ed and he entered. He began to remon
strate about the two doors and the other
answered with oaths. A quarrel quickly
arose, and then, it is said, Gandy pulled
a pocketknife. Lyons retreated and dared
him to go outside and repeat his words.
The door was slammed shut with Lyons
on the outside and a moment later
Gandy followed him out. There was a
wagon in the yard and Lyons says that
he retreated behind this, and, seeing a
knife in the other's hand, tried to make
his escape. Lyons states that Gandy
headed him off and struck at him with
the knife. In the meantime Lyons had
picked up a small piece of a brick and
as he was struck at he struck back with
the brick in his hand. The blow fell
upon Gandy's left temple and he fell to
the ground in an unconscious state.from
which he did not recover. He lived only
a short time.
When Lyons learned that Gandy was
dead he gave himself up to Captain
Flahive at No. 2 station. He was then
taken to the central police station and
locked up.
While in his cell Lyons said he had
acted only in self-defense. "He came at
me with a knife." he said, "and I was
compelled to defend myself. I had no
thought of killing him."
Mrs. Gandy and the two visitors tell
a different story. They say that Lyons
was the aggressor all through the diffi
culty and that hia attack was without

lias Developed All the Bad in
G. C. Clemens' Violent Tirade
Against the Newspapers.
The second presidential candidate to
speak in Topeka this year, Eugene V.
Debs, Social Democrat, addressed about
1,500 people in the Auditorium Saturday
The crowd began to gather at 7.30
o'clock and continued to come long after
8 o'clock, the hour set for the meeting
to be called, to order. It was 8:30 before
Mr. Debs and G. C. Clemens stepped to
the platform and the audience was get
ting uneasy. Mr. Clemens promptly
stepped forward and said: "I have the
pleasure as well as the privilege of in
troducing the Social Democratic candi
date for president of the United States,
Eugene V. Debs." The audience appre
ciated the brevity of the introduction for
they were tired from the long- wait and
were not anxious to hear Mr. Clemens
Mr. Debs began tils address with: "A
mighty social revolution is in progress;
the era of the small producer and of
competition is passing away and pri
vate monopolies rule the land." He
then went on to say that the revolution
while quiet was powerful, and that the
present conditions served only to add
strength to it.
"In the present political conflict," said
Mr. Debs, "the American people are di
vided into three clases: the Republican,
or dominant class; the Democratic, or
middle class; the Social Democratic, or
working class; and each party is com
mitted to the class it represents. The
Republican party is in favor of the
trusts, the Democratic party says it will
dissolve them, and the Social Democratic
party proposes to absorb them."
Mr. Debs then went on to say that the
Republican party favored expansion, or
a retention of the Philippines, in order
that there might be a place in which to
dispose of the surplus product of this
country. He said that the overproduc
tion was the result of machinery, and
that with modern machines this country
would soon be able to supply the world,
provided it could get the market, but
that competition was so great that in
order to compete successfully the wage
of the working man was reduced. "In
order to more successfully manage the
markets monopolies axe formed and
every monopoly privately owned is a
vicious institution, for it reduces the
wage of the laboring class.
"Trusts are the result of economic de
velopment and under our present sys
tem cannot be avoided. The Democratic
party in its platform proposes to dis
solve the trusts, but they would at once
develop again if that could be done.
That proposed remedy is no remedy at
all. They have no legal standing; how
can they be dissolved, as Mr. Bryan pro
poses? In the case of the mines in Penn
sylvania the miners are getting less to
day less than than one dollar for a day's
work, while thirty years ago, before
trusts were formed, the miner received
$5 for a day's work. Competition has
cut down the wages until the working
man who developed the mine is in a state
of poverty. What does the Social Dem
ocratic party propose to do about it?
There is but one thing to do the people
must own the mines. As long as the
mines are privately owned the men who
work in them will starve, while a few
who own the mines will get rich.
"Our railroads are owned by lords,
dukes, counts and no accounts who live
on the other side, and they care little
for the man employed on their property
so long as they get the dividends to
spend. The railroads are soulless cor
porations, but they are necessary. They
are the great veins of commerce which
supply this nation with its "life blood.
The smaller roads have been absorbed
by the greater. They are consolidating
all the while and now a few men con
trol this greatest of all public necessity.
This consolidation cannot be dissolved
while it is privately owned. Under So
cial Democracy the railroad would be
owned by the people and operated by
the people. The man who worked on it
would be able to support his family, the
wife would be queen of the home, and
the children would be educated. We will
all be something besides a cog in the
wheel of modern industry.
"Modern machinery is responsible to a
great extent for the present condition.
Machinery now does all and more than
was formerly done by the man with the
tools, the expert workman. The ma
chine makes our shoes, our hats, our
clothing; in fact, it makes everything we
wear or use, and it does it cheaper and
better than could be done by the man
with the tools. A child can operate the
machine, and under the present system
the child feeds the machine while the
machine starves the child.
"When man owned his tools the more

S. C. Harris, 627 Hancock street, To
peka, Kan., is a daily reader of the
State Journal, and like a good many
other people, he has suffered from im
pure blood for some time, and when he
was quite young he had a bad case of
scrofula, which has caused him a good
deal of trouble all through his life. One
day while reading the State Journal he
ran across the advertisement of Botanic
Blood Balm, which claimed to heal all
evidence of impure blood. So he pur
chased two or three bottles from the
nearest druggist, and the effect of the
medicine is described by himself, as fol
lows: ' Botanic Blood Balm (B. B. B.) did
me a great deal of good for what I took
it for. My blood was in a bad shape,
as I was broken out with hives and
pimples, and they turned to yellow
blisters all over my body. After using
two bottles- of Blood Balm my blood
was made pure and rich, and all the
blisters, eruptions and hives disap
peared and all the sores healed; also
my scrofula was cured, and I have not
been troubled since I took Blood Balm.
I always recommend B. B. B. to other
people who are suffering in any way
from impure blood or skin diseases.
"Yours truly. S. C. HARRIS."

cause 'when the machine he operates
produces more tnan tne demand the mill
closes and he is out of employment. The
working man consumes and the machine
does not. Besides being an operproducer
tne machine is a nonconsumer.
"The machine has made the tramp.
Fifty years ago there was not a tramp
or a millionaire in the enure country.
Why did all men working fifty years
ago and today, why is it that men have
not work at living wages. It is because
of a modern machine called the trust.
The trust makes the millionaire and
makes the tramp. I never see a tramp
without a feeling or sorrow and of dis
gust for the system that makes such
things necessary. The tramn is the vic
tim of our modern machinery and our
system. He is a tramp through force of
circumstances and if they had been a
little different you might be in his place.
lhenaemne nas competed with men,
and wages were reduced; then the wo
man were called because they would
work for less and the men were thrown
out of employment; next the child was
called because it would work for less
than the women. There are today em
ployed in this country 1,600,000 women
and 2,000,000 children who should not
be obliged to labor and would not if it
was not that competition and the ma
chine have so reduced the price of labor.
"Senator Wolcott said in his speech in
Philadelphia, 'There is not today an idle
mill or an idle man.' Those statements
were both lies. At the time that speech
was made two mills were closed in Terre
Haute, Ind., my home, and had been
closed since April. The mills employed
over UOO men each and were closed by
the trusts. Many of the men who work
ed in them have gone to Durango, Mexi
co, where they can get employment. A
man who will make the statements Sen
ator Wolcott did, knowing them to be
untrue should be sentenced to a term in
the anthracite coal mines in Pennsyl
vania. "Private ownership is responsible for
the condition in those suburbs of hell,
the coal mines. The miner is serving a
life sentence in those dismal dungeons
with (no rest and no chance for pardon.
He may only avoid his servitude by
gliding through that back door suicide.
He lives in a cabin owned by the corpor
ation. There i3 no paper on the wall,
no carpet on the floor, no music greets
him as he approaches his vile abode.
Haggard poverty meets him at the door.
There can be but little love and happi
ness in such a home, for love and happi
ness do not go hand in hand with poverty.
The skeleton of famine does not teach
love and virtue. What can be expected
of children brought up with such sur
roundings? They will increase the crim
inal class. Nothing else can be expected.
"The Democrats and Republicans pro
pose to do absolutely nothing to relieve
this condition which is due to the trusts
and corporations. The Republicans upJ
hold the trusts and the Democrats say
the corporations must be protected.
"Competition has developed nothing
that is good in man; it has developed all
that is mean and cruel and vicious.
They tell you that in this race for ex
istence it is the survival of the fittest.
This is not true. It is the survival of
the one who is mean, vicious, grasping,
who has the best 'commercial instinct.'
Look back over the commercial highway
and see you are lying by the wayside.
13 it not the man who has the large
heart? The man who could not refuse
to credit a starving fellow creature?
There are many such. Men who trans
ferred the stock to their ledgers because
they had tender hearts and were not
blessed with the 'commercial instinct.'
Mr. Debs touched upon the government
by injunction and cited cases where both
Republican and Democratic judges had
not only enjoined the workingrnen. but
told where the soldiers had been ordered
to shoot them down. He told of Olney,
the attorney for trusts, making speeches
for Bryan and of Croker and Cockran,
members of trusts, doing the same, and
then asked what hope the working man
could hope for in the Democratic party.
"You imagine you are a sovereign citi
zen," said Mr. Debs, "but you e.re not.
You are an industrial slave. The cor
porations control your labor and control
you. You are in bondage on the install
ment plan."
In speaking of the public ownership of
railroads, Mr. Debs said: "If the owners
and the board of directors of our rail
roads were in Europe, the trains would
run just the same. Trains would come
in one time and business would be clone
just as promptly and accurately. Their
absence makes not the slightest differ
ence. The board of directors do not oper
ate the railroads; they operate nothing
but the stocks on Wall street. The em
cloves do the work and could do it just
as well if the people owned the roads.
The government operates successfully our
postal department, excepting for a deficit
every year that is created by the robbing
rates paid the railroads for the transpor
tation of the mail. If the government
can. operate successfully our great postal
system, it can operate successiuiiy tne
railroads. It should also operate the
telegraph lines. We are the only nation
on earth that does not do so. The West

a five per cent d.videna on its water stock
and continues to charge at the rate of
two cents per word to send a message

In closing he asked the people to sup
port G. C. Census for governor.
Alter jur. uerjs nan concluded: Mr.
Clemens stepped to the front of the plat
form and held out his arm for silence,
about half of the audience sot out be
fore it was known that Mr. Clemens want
ed to talk. hen quiet was restored he
began .talking, bi:t was so angry that it
was difficult to understand him. He said:
"Is there newspaper reporter here? If
so, let him speak out." No one spoke
and he did not notice the State Journal
representative, so he repeated his ques
tion. Still there was no response and then
Mr. Clemen's poured out the vials of his
wrath upon the Topeka press, because
there were no reporters seated at the
table on the platform.
"I have never heard of such outrageous
treatment," said Mr. Clemens. "Do the
newspapers of Topeka. think thev are
running the universe! We will teach them
thpy are not. There are 3.000 railroad men
who will resent this insult. They will
back me in what I say. I will not pa

with a man who lends them his support
in any manner. This is nefarious. They
refuse to send reporters to a meeting
Vihere Mr. Deb? speaks, but they can not

"I have been with Mr. Debs in Chicago,
in Cincinnati ai.o in many other cities
and such discourteous treatment has
never been accorded him. The representa

here to talk freedom, not a one can be

outrageous! I have never heard cf such
conduct as the papers of this town are
guilty of."
During his speech, which lasted several
minutes, Mr. Clemens walked about the
platform swinging his arms, stamping in
rage and occasionally stopping to pound
the table. When he finished the audience
which had remained standing, cheered
and then went home.

Chicago, Oct. 15. Chairman Hanna of
the Republican national committee
started on his tour of the northwest to
day. He was accompanied by Senator
Prye of Maine, Mr. Dolliver of Iowa, 9
brother to Senator Dolliver, and others.
The party will travel on a special train
and make the first important stop at
Waukesha, Wis., about 3 o'clock this af
ternoon. From Waukesha the party will move
on to Madison for a night meeting. In
stead of remaining there until tomorrow
morning the special train will proceed to
Stillwater, Minn., where Senator Hanna
and Senator Frye will begin the second
day of their tour. The itinerary includes
four or five stops in Minnesota,
More time and attention will be given
to South Dakota than any other state in
the list to be visited. Senator Hanna
cnuld not say at present the number of
places at which he would be expected to
make a talk in South Dakota, but he
thought it would be practically that
commonwealth from one end to the
other. His principal meetings, however,
will be at Sioux Falls and Pierre.
Except Omaha, he could not say where
the Nebraska committee would send him
in Mr. Bryan's state. The start in South
Dakota will be made at Water town
Tuesday evening.

In one respect Great Britain has rea
son to be thankful to the boxers. The
destruction of large portions of the Man
churian railway and the general preoc
cupation of Russia with affairs in North
ern Asia delayed Slavonic diplomacy for
a time from pursuing its offensive policy
on the Afghan frontier. When the bulk
of England's troops were locked up in
South Africa and Russia had nothing to
divert its attention, some very dangerous
movements were made in the direction
of Herat. The danger passed for the
moment when the boxers ga ve the czar's
legions other work to do. Now it is re
ported once more that military activity
is visible in Afghanistan, and that Cos
sack regiments in Turkestan are moving
toward the boundary, ine Kussians are
much nearer the gates of Herat than
they were when Charles Marvin made
his famous appeal to the British people,
and Gen. Kouropatkin, the war minister
of a peace emperor, proudly claims to

But the great danger which threatens

The politics of the kingdom is at present
