Tnjin... futica Bell 'Phone 101 Reporters' Room Bell 'Phono 677 Just as has jeen freely predicted, the ffs'eeley case is not to be heard until af ter the election. Sir Thomas Lipton has announced that any gentleman in the pork, game, calling for a "sight" will get it. It turns out that Sir Thomas Upton nnd not President McKinley, is respon sible for the high price of hogs. When the powers present their claim for indemnity, China may file a counter tlaim for property stolen by the Inva ders. It is now about time for both parties o get their reasons for defeat arranged in order for possible use after the elec tion. Both parties now being sure of the election of their respective candidates to he presidency, they may be expected to turn their attention to securing a ma jority in the next congress. The same persons who are now de claring that the currency question is the paramount issue, probably would as e rt just as strenuously, in the event of Mr. Bryan's election, that the result did not mean that the people favored free silver. The fruit trade of this country Is as puming an importance hardly second to the cereals. The strawberry crop is said to be worth $80,000,000, apples 1200,000,000, Granges and peaches t20,0O0,0O0, and suf ficient other small fruits to bring the to tal to $500,000.000. When Mr. Bryan charged that his de feat w as to be purchased with money if tossible, opponents asserted that he was (scared and was preparing for his down fall. Now Republicans say that 10,000 illegal voters are registered in New York. Is there any scare about that? A municipal ownership movement Kvith some new features is underway in Wisconsin. The legislature last winter passed a law authorizing municipalities to issue negotiable bonds for the estab Sishment of telephone systems. A pri vate corporation with a capital of $300, poo has been organized, and will estab Sish a plant in any town, taking the bonds in payment. The bond draws 5 ter cent interest and runs for 30 years. per cent being set aside annually as e sinking fund. When the bonds mature the municipality will own the plant un incumbered. The charge to subscribers iwill be Vi per annum. The New York Herald's canvass gives IMcKinley 25S electoral votes to 108 for 3?ryan, and places 21 in the doubtful column. It sets down as doubtful only hree states, Indiana, with 15 votes, and IMontana and Idaho with 3 each. It Itransfers Kansas with 10 votes. South Dakota with 4, Washington with 4 and Wyoming with 3 from Bryan's column Jn 18S6 to MeKinley's this year, and Rives to Bryan Maryland with S votes end Kentucky with 13, though both ttlates have been regarded as good fight Sng ground for the Republicans, espe cially Maryland. The significant fea uies of the Herald's survey are that New Tork state is set down as unalter ably committed to McKinley and that McKinley's election is assured by a large majority without the vote of In diana. Giving all the doubtful votes ti Bryan, he was still 35 votes short of a riajority in the electoral college and 69 rVotes behind McKinley. The use of the injunction as a legal nveapon is discussed by the Chicago SNe'ws as follows: It was inevitable that in the course of time the board of trade would turn the ftables on the bucket shops and win a tremendous victory over them. This turning and this victory happened, in fact, in Judge Kohlsaat's court yester day when a temporary injunction was granted forbidding one Stone and oth ers from obtaining, selling or distribut ing the quotations of the board. The re straining order will cut off quotations from many bucket shops, and it is only necessary to extend its scope in order to cut off all bucket shops. This is an important victory. But the .pirategetlcal moves by which it was ob tained were perfectly simple. Hereto fore the bucket shop has always got the Injunction restraining the board from shutting off its quotations. The board i as the defendant, the party against iv horn the injunction ran. But now the toard becomes the complainant. It pro cures the injunction running against the tucket shop. It is simply a question of nvho is going to be shut off. If the buck et shop moves first the board is shut off. If the board moves first the bucket chop is shut off. It is a question wheth er you are going to get the injunction yourself, restraining the other fellow, or (whether the other fellow is going to get one restraining you. The advantage de rivable from this simple legal principle Is so obvious that it is a wonder the board has not moved in this direction tie fere. In any lawsuit always enjoin the other ide before that side has a chance to en Join you. FACTS ABOUT TRUSTS IX. From the New Tork World. Let us suspend for a moment the ex ami natlonvrf specific trusta for the pur pose of presenting in tabular and there fore graphic form the gratitude of pro tected trusts to the people who have taxed themselves now these many years n their behalf. . The following table shows not only that, the self-sacrificing American citi zen pays the duty which makes the for eign article en article of luxury, hut that his taxfattnKi beneficiary sells the product of the domestic infant industry to the foreigner for less than he charges his American gull. Here is a table which compares the American and English prices for sev eral trust articles. American English price. price. Lead, 100 rb S4.7D Smooth wire. 100 tb 3.05 2-50 Barb wire, 100 lb 3.80 2.S9 Wire nails, 100 It) 3.38 2.55 Iron ore, ton 6.11 5.25 Tin plate, 100 lb 4.85 3 60 Sheet steel, 100 rb 2.70 2.07 Steel beams, 100 lb 2.30 180 Castor oil, 1 lb 124 .006 Cement (Portland) bbl.. 2.55 l.U The American pays the higher price because he has taxed himself to exclude from the country the Knglish competing article, thereby giving his ungrateful beneficiary the power to overcharge him. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. The more a man talks, the less wood tie saws. There is always a way; it takes a will to discover it. It seems that there can't be so much time and money spent in dressing a lit tle girl that her stockings will stay up. Next to a bridal party on the streets. the funniest thing is to see two girls carrying an enormous grip between them. A certain Atchison woman quit "jaw ing" her husband three months ago, and she has since gained six pounds. When a baby smiles In front of a photograph camera, its mother thinks that that does settle it: a smarter child never lived. Men don't like the kind of man who left his wife carry the pocketbook. And that sort of man never has as much in his pocketbook as the other kind. Luther Dickerson. farmer, waa on the streets todav, complaining that town boys, while hunting near his place recently, killed a yearling calf. Mr. Dickerson said it was done inten tionally; that town boys will do any thing when out in the country. The reporter to whom Mr. Dickerson told his story contended that the shooting was an accident, and of course it was. The reporter warmly defended boys. and Mr. Dickerson finally told some of the pranks he engaged in when a boy. Once he assisted a lot of other boys in lifting an old ram to a neighbors roof. Boys are abused the world over, and often unjustly. The Globe, a friend of the boys, suggests to them, when they go into the country hunting, that they remember the rights of country people. it is not necessary to be a rough in order to enjoy a hunting excursion. It always pays to be a gentleman. POINTED PARAGRAPH 3 From the Chicago News. The man with the hoe is entitled to a grub stake. Adam was the only man ever married on his wedding Eve. Woman may be a conundrum, but she always has a ready answer. Tou can't always measure a lover's sincerity by his sighs. Selfishness is usualy to be. found in young women and old men The majority of blacksmiths are forg ers, but they are seldom arrested. The day is lost if you pass it without having laughed at least once. The man who owes money usually worries less than the man he owes it to. A man may select his own companions. but his relations are thrust upon him. GTJAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. Riots are often caused by rye. The electric fan now ceases to put on airs. Merchants are beginning to spring fall styles. A "Bartender's Guide" dry reading. shouldn't be The homely girl is usually to be found at home. When a fellow borrows trouble there ia often the devil to pay. Every man doesn't own an automoi bile who thinks he auto. Painless dentistry doesn't exist any more than do paneless windows. The elevator boy complains that fee raises everything but his own salary. LOCAL MENTION. The street department is grading the parka on Monroe street. The trial of Frank Eliing was postponed in the city court today until Friday. The M'Ksouri Pacific pay car will make its monthly visit to Topeka this evening.

It is officially an nounced that Lord Alverstone (better known as Sir Richard Webster) has been appointed lord chief justice of Eng land, in succession to the late Baron Russell of Killowen. Justice A. L. Smith succeeds Lord Alverstone as master of the rolls. Failed to Post Danger Signals. Chicago, Oct. 16. Two men were killed and one fatally Injured by the derail ment of a freight train on the Chicago & Alton at Lawndale near here today. The dead: Charles Eaton, engineer; Wilson, fireman. The injured: B. F. Strimple, brakeman. The victims were all residents of Bloomington, 111. The wreck was caused by the removal of a rail by a section gang making repairs. It is said they failed to post any danger signals Mil. SHELDON IN BOSTON. Paper at the Hub " Fears His Serv ice Slay Become Erratic. From the Boston Transcript We do not Question, the innate good ness or "the entire sincerity of purpose of Rev. Charles M. Sheldon, but. as the self-appointed exponent of what cnrist would do in various given situations, there is danger that his service may be come erratic, and, consequently, mis leading, when he doubtless intends it to be stimulating and uplifting. He has spent some time in Boston, and has made a study of the business lite of the city with respect to the particular standard which he has set up. In an address before the Society of Christian Endeavor in New York, Tuesday night, he was not able to give a report of his findings mat he considered very encour aging: "To his inquiries some men re plied that they believed that 10 per cent of business men in Boston would receive Jesus Christ as an associate; other esti mates were as low as 1 per cent." If 10 per cent of our business men. or even 5 per cent, would be willing to receive Christ as an associate, and give him an equal voice in the direction of their op erations, the situation may be consider ed quite hopeful. That is the ultimate test of Christianity, and one man in ten or twenty who could meet it would make a very gratifying leaven. But why pick out the business community, as he ias mine once Derore, lor tnese renec tions? How many churches would per mit Christ to preach in their pulpits? He was no theologian. He might come direct to the sacred desk after eating and drinking with publicans and sin ners, and what a profanation that would be. He was the arch heretic of his time, and should he return he would doubtless distance all the heretics of the present time. When he appeared among men he was ahead of his time. Should he return now he would be just as far ahead of it, and that would breed trou ble at once. Should Christ return to earth he would be quite as likely to con tinue his mission from the store, the bank or even the machine shop, as from the pulpit. LANGUAGE IS PLAIN. Gor. Roosevelt Says He is Being Lied About. Chicago, Oct. 1C The following tele graph correspondence between Secretary Perry S. Heath, of the national Repub lican committee, and Governor Theodore Roosevelt has been given out at Repub lican national headquarters: "Theodore Roosevelt: Following mat ter being widely circulated on handbills in Kansas and other states: "Governor Roosevelt said in a speech in Cooper Institute, in New York city, in 1S96: 'The way to get rid of Bryan ism and its child labor troubles is to stand it up against the wall and shoot it. to death.' And in a speech delivered in Chicago just after the great strike: 'Any person who would join a strike or go near one. ought to be shot.' Will the man w ho earns his bread by labor sup port the Roosevelt ticket? "Please wire me today if possible spe cific answer to the above, so that I may repeat it by wire wherever it is being used. PERRY S. HEATH." "Elizabethtown, Ky.: Perry S. Heath, secretary Republican national commit tee, Chicago: "Both statements are absolute lies, without one particle of foundation of anv sort, character or description. I neer said anything remotely resemb ling either statement in Chicago or in Cooper Institute or anywhere else. If responsible people circulated them I would suggest a suit for criminal libel. I explicitly denied them in Kansas City speech. They are slanderous lies which only could be circulated by scoundrels, and which are known to be lies by the people who invented them and the people who circulated them. "THEODORE ROOSEVELT." WAR IN SOUTH CHINA Rebellion is Assuming Formid able Proportions. Hong Kong, Oct. 16. A column of troops was dispatched this morning to the Kowloon frontier, with the object of barring armed refugees, either rebels or imperial troops, from entering British territory when defeated. The rebels are reported to be 3.000 strong, thirty miles north of the British frontier. A thousand of Admiral Ho's troops are in pursuit of them, while two thousand Chinese troops have left Can ton, overland, to intercept the rebels. Admiral Ho has informed the governor that the rebellion was carefully planned. The rebels are anxious to conciliate the villagers and gain the respect of for eigners, hence the absence of outrage and pillage. All indications point to the rising being widespread. Outbreaks oc curred simultaneously in several centers of Kwang-Tung and Kwang-Su. 5 Ap parently Yang-Yu Wei, Sun-Yat-Sen and the triads have amalgatsd their forces in the common cause the over throw of Manehu rule in south China Some positive indication of the atti tude of the foreign powers is anxiously awaited. A French launch was captured by pirates October 13 near Mong-Chow. The pirates secured $32,000 in specie. GERMAN REPLY HELD BACK. Paris, Oct. 15. Germany is the only power which has not replied formally to France's note on China, though she has varbally accepted its terms. Japan's an swer, received today, accepts the pro posals, retaining only one condition. This refers to the permanent prohibition of the importation of arms. While agreeing w ith the principle, Japan offers suggestions as to how the prohibition can be best accomplished. A dispatch received at the French for eign office from Hankow, dated October 13 says the Chinese court arrived at Sian Fu October 12.

An explosion of rub ber cement in the basement of a four story building in Jefferson avenue, oc cupied by Witchell Sons company, Ltd., manufacturers of shoes, at 1:30 p. m. to day resulted in a fire which cost the life of one man and injured eight persons, four of whom were girls. The fira spread with such rapidity that the em ployes were compelled to jump from the upper w indows.

Hoarse from his efforts of yesterday, Senator Hanna began his speech making in Minnesota at an early hour today. The first step was at Owatonna, Minn., in Congress man Tawney's district and here Mr. Hanna spoke for ten minutes from a platform erected near the railroad sta tion. A large crowd had gathered and gave Mr. Hanna a warm welcome. In his speech Mr. Hanna referred to Pres ident McKinley as the Moses of the Re publican party a sentiment which was enthusiastically applauded. He spoke in part as follovs: "All the issues that have been present ed in this campaign, free silver, imper ialism, trusts and what not, are simply collateral issues injected into this con vass to lead the people away from the real issue. ' The paramount issue before the people and the only issue wa are in terested in is 'shall the present condi tions be continued?' We don't feel any particular anxiety to accommodate Mr. Bryan by making him president of the United States. We do not recognize that Mr. Bryan has done anything for his country or the people generally to en title him to the highest honor in their gift. Read the public careers of both the candidates and make your own com parisons. My friends, all there is to the question is, aren't we well off? Aren't we on the road to continued pros perity, as long as we keep to the land marks which have marked that pros perity in this country? Let well enough alone. Don't swap horses crossing the stream. Don't change McKinley for Bryan." Mr. Hanna then spoke a few words In warm praise of Congressman Tawney and urged his re-election to congress, with the remark that he was one of the most valued members 6f the house. Victor I. Dolliver followed Mr. Hanna in a brief speech at the conclusion of which the train departed for Waseca, the next stop. Mankato, Minn., Oct. 16. At Waseca Mr. Hanna was interrupted several times by people in the crowd w ho asked questions about various trusts. Mr. Hanna denied there was any coal or wire nail trust, but admitted, amid laughter, that there was an ice trust. "The decline in the price bf wire nails and everything else that the farmer buys is over 50 per cent, already" said Mr. Hanna. "Things will come down to a normal condition and will be regulated by the supply and demand, just as all business is regulated. You can no more- interfere with the laws that govern trade than you can with the laws that gov ern nature Itself. Every commodity that is manufactured in this country is made by the highest-priced labor in the world. The laboring man, if wire nails are high, gets his share of the price." A stop of 45 minutes was made at Mankato, where Messrs. Hanna and Frye spoke to a large assemblage from a platform in the public square. Sen ator Frye devoted most of hi3 time to the discussion of the tariff. Interrup tions were frequent, many questions be ing asked the Maine senator in regard to silver coinage, but the audience was en tirely good-natured and cheered the badinage between Senator Frye and his questioners. Senator Hanna said in part: "After a business experience of 40 years, I want to say that just as sure as the sun rises in the east, if a change from the present policy and the present administration is made and Mr. Bryan is put at the head of the government of the United States not only a financial panic will follow immediately but our industries will be prostrated and will not recover in ten years. How ridicu lous it is to talk about yielding to the ambitions of any man, simply because he has an insane desire to be president, to talk of tearing down all that we have built up in these 40 years, to talk of withdrawing the United States from the place where Air. McKinley has put it, in the very firing line of nafions. Why, if no other interest would impel us, our patriotism would say 'God for bid." Our pride in our country would say 'God forbid.' But there is something that comes closer home than all that, it is the welfare and comfort of our wives and children. That has the first call that should influence the head of every house. In 1896 there were some people in this country who believed Mr. Bryan was at least honest in his opinions. Ev ery day adds to the number of men who voted for him in 1S96, who say they do not believe he was ever honest in his in tentions, that he has been playing the part of a hypocrite and that for this same insane desire for office, he will sac rifice even his own self-respect." Beyond Mankato, Senator Hanna's in tinerary included brief stops at New Ulm, Tracy and Marshall.Minn., with an evening meeting at Watertown, S. D. TOURISG NEW YORK.

London Stewards Conclude Investi gation of Escurial'a Lost Race. London, Oct. 16. After a searching in quiry into the running of the American horse Escurial at Newmarket October 11, the stewards of the jockey club have completely exonerated from all blame the owner, Mr. J. A. Drake, and the trainer, Wishard. Suspicion had been cast on Leister Reiff, the Jockey, owing to Escurial losing, though he had been confidently expected to win. The stew ards say that although they are not al together satisfied, they do not consider the evidence sufficient to prove the horse was pulled or to justify the withdrawal of Reiff's license.
