TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 1G, 1900. pi ERE is a matter fort. You want a clear, fair complexion. This is really nine-tenths a question of the treatment of the pores of the skin. Some toilet soaps are as nippy and keen as mustard. If you will only use the virtue you call your Judgment, it will tell you that any soap which leaves the hands habitually dry is robbing the skin of its natural oil. Free alkali is the robber's name. Ivory Soap has no free alkali. Try it I It floats. coryiGrr mi mr the WKxr.e GREAT-AUDI Hears Gov. Roosevelt at Coring ton, Kentucky. He Aims His Talk Directly at Col. Bryan. Covington, Ky., Oct. IS. Addressing one of the largest crowds that has ever asso-mbied in thiacity to listen to a. can didate for public office. Governor Theo dore Roosevelt last night closed his cam paign in Kentucky, and will proceed on his tour of Ohio. Long before the gov ernor's arrival here court house square, in which the speaker's stand had been erected and decorated, was congested with men and women anxious to hear him. Though the audience was not so enthusiastic as that which gathered at Lexinerton or that at Mount Sterling or at Ashland, or at Maysville, the gov ernor was given the most respectful at tention, and he was interrupted fre quently with applause or by persons who male frienrUy comments upon the salient, points of his speech. It was the tenth speech Governor Roosevelt had' made since morning, the rust being: at Lexington, where W. C. P. Breekenridge and Judge Durham, both ex-confederate officers, put the crowd in the best of humor in jointly introduc ing the governor. Then at Winchester and next at Mount Sterling other large crowds greeted the arrival of the train, providing parades. Moorehead, Ashland, Greenup, South Portmouth, Vanceburg and Maysville in successive order paid tribute to the governor's popularity in Kentucky, and the crowd which gath ered at the depot here betrayed no diminution of desire to see him. Early in the day Leslie Coombs, chair man of the Republican state commit tee, had received dispatches from Cov ington, informing him that Republican leaders here were apprehensive that an organized effort would be made to break up the meeting. Mr. Coombs (hurriedly transmitted his information to the gov ernor, whereat the latter smiled broad ly and assured the chairman that there eould be no possible danger of serious interruption on his tour in Kentucky. To insure absolute tranquillity and to 1 rovide against any display of hostility. Chief of Poice Pugh and the sheriff of this county doubled their forces. All t-ueh precautions, however, proved to Jiave tieen unnecessary, for beyond iso lated instances of good-natured badin age and the tooting of a few tin horns the meeting was as peaceable as a mat inee. The governor's speech was brief. After the speaking Governor Roosevelt was escorted by the First Voters' club of Cincinnati to the Grand hotel in that city, where an informal reception was held. In his speech. Governor Roosevelt said : ."I wish to appeal to you. men of Ken tucky, in the name of civil liberty. I regard the currency as an important is sue; 1 regard our prosperity as an im portant issue; but more important than jinything else is the right of every man to cast his vote as he chooses and to Jiave it counted as cast. We can afford to differ on questions of policy; but we can not afford to differ on the funda mental rights of American citizenship. (Applause). "In the state of Kentucky every man is in honor bound to stand up and see that there is no condoning of the offen ses of those who violate the will of the i.eople. There should be favoritism for none and discrimination against none. "I wish on this point, to appeal not only to Republicans, not only to gold Democrats; not only to those silver SJemocrats who from high and conscien tious motives are with us in this con test, but I want to appeal to the mis guided men who have upheld the other side in the wrong that they have done, men who are misled by the shibboleth of a party name. "We have reached a stage in the cam paign when our opponents are engaged in busily explaining either their actions or their words. Mr. Jones, the chair man of the Bryanite Democracy, has Just been explaining that he is not con nected with trusts, because the cotton "bale trust is not a trust. Of course us ing the word in a technical sense, there is no trust in the country. The sugar trust and the Standard Oil trust are not technically trusts at all, but simply great corporations. So the cotton bale trust is in the same sense of the word, not a trust, but a corporation. But of course ail thi3 is mere quibbling. TTsing the word in the popular sense, as we gener ally do use it, all these corporations are trusts. It is sheer hypocrisy to speak of the steel trust, the sugar trust and the Standard Oil trust and then to deny that the cotton bale trust, the ice trust and the whisk trust combines are in the same category. "Oa Saturday last in Oiiio. Mr, Bryan which touches your com gamsle co. ciwciniiATt tried to defend himself for what he had said about our army, answering my criticisms. He first of all stated that I had changed my position since my De troit speech, which is simply not so. I stand precisely where I stood then and Mr. Bryan either knows this, or ought to know it. Our regular army is infin itely small in size compared with the population and even Mr. Bryan ought not to be afraid of the S6-100 of a regu lar soldier for every thousand of our people. In the next place Mr. Bryan sought refuge in saying that the army bill had been amended. It is of course idle to quibble about amendments. The present law is what he was speaking of and what I was speaking of. At present we have an army of 100,000 men, 65,000 of whom are regulars, and it was con cerning this army that Mr. Bryan spoke when he stated that the object of get ting it was to terrorize the laboring men when they made just demands. It is impossible to stigmatize too strongly such a statement. It does not contain a scintilla of truth; it has not a particle of foundation; it can only appeal to thor oughly base and unworthy passions. The bill was voted for by the great majority of the patriotic Democrats of both houses. Does Mr. Bryan mean to imply that these Democrats in so voting.head ed by Senator Cockrell were actuated by the purpose to put the army in forts near great cities in order to terrorize workingmen? What he says applies as much to the Democrats who voted for the bills as to the Republicans and if such a statement is slanderous as re gards some of the supporters of the bill, it is also slanderous as regards the oth ers. , "The simple truth is. as Mr. Bryan per fectly well knows, that every intelligent man foresaw that there would be trouble in the Philippines and that for this rea son as well as to garrison our seacoast forts, and for other duties, such as meet ing a contingency like that which arose in China, the army was provided. When Mr. Bryan advocated the signing of the treaty with Spain he advocated the tak ing of the Philippines and therefore re storing and keeping order in them, and if he was sc blind as not to foresee the trouble ahead, the reflection is upon him. and upo.i no one else. The only thing that could have avoided trouble in the Philippines vas the policy of scuttle, the policy of cravfn. ignoble flying and shirk ing of duty. To stay there and establish a stable government, as proposed bv Mr. Bryan, is a policy which would cause as much Trouble with Agulnaldo's followers as any other, because thev are fighting simply to found a cruel and oppressive oligarchy. The only way to secure per manent peace and civil and individual lib erty for the great bulk of the inhabitants of the Philippines was to do precisely what we hive done, take them over as a necessary incident of the war with Spain and then put down the bodies of armed bandi'p and introduce a govern ment of law, order and justice. "Mr. Bryan has sought in vain to an swer what 1 nid about the army. He does not dare to answer the questions I put to him in the same 'spirit. I answered the ten questions he had asked, and I pro pounded some for himself. He had not answered whether or not he will pay the interest on the national, debt and the pen sions of the volunteers of the civil war in gold "or silver, if elected. He has not an. swereJ -whether he will refuse to receive the elec-.orrtl votes of North Carolina, be cause obtained for him by a flagrant vio lation of the doctrine of the consent of the governed, which he so ardently cham pions when he seeks to apply it to the Tagp.l bands, on the other side of the gl' be. He has not answered the question why he supports in Kentucky a faction of the Bryanized Democracy, which seeks to deprive, and has deprived white men as well as black. ex-Confe lerates ai well as ex-Union soldiers, gold Democrats and Silver Democrats as well as Republicans of their right to cast their votes as they wish and to have them counted as cast. He has not answered the oues'i"n as to whether he will condemn Mr. Croker and Mr. Cr ikers associates in New York for themselves being stockholders in the ice trust and doing ail they can to prevent its dissolution, while in public hypocritic ally denouncing trusts. , "Let Mr. Bryan answer these questions as I have answered every question he raises and then I win put some more." SANTA FE'S LUMBER ROAD. Contracts Let For Connecting the Beaumont and G. C. & S. I". The Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe has let contracts for the grading and bridge work on the extension of the Mont gomery branch of that road. The ex tension will be about 60 miles in length and will take the Montgomery branch to Silsbee Junction, where it will connect with the Gulf, Beaumit & Kansas City, which was purchased by the Santa Fe some time ago and reorganized under its management last week. The contract for the first 25 miles was given to Kicker & Lee, of Galveston, and the contract for the second 25 miles was let to John Scott & Sons, of St. Louis. The contractors are to begin work at once and are to complete their contracts by February 15, 1901. The Beaumont traverses a big lumber region and its acquisition gives the San ta Fe lumber business of its own for the first time to any great extent. This road's annual report, filed a day or two since, showed gross earnings of $269,505 and operating expenses, $188,816.

"Has Grimes ever appr'oached you on this proposition?" "No, sir." "Has Mr. Grimes ever received any money from your bank outside of taia transactions officially?" "Not to my knowledge." "You would know if any money had been paid?" "Probably I would." "How long was this money to remain in the bank?" "It was always subject to the demand of the treasurer." Frank Thompson, teller of the Central National bank, swore that he has had no transactions with Grimes, except, so far as relates to his official business as state treasurer. "Have you any knowledge of the bank's paying the treasurer for the use of state money." "No, sir." "Have you ever heard of such trans actions?" "No, sir." "Who would know?" "Mr. Bonebrake or Mr. Knowles." "Have you ever had a conversation with Grimes about this subject?' . "No, sir." "Know nothing about it?" "No, sir." Mr. Bonebrake stated that he had not heard, and had no knowledge of any payments of interest or bonus to Grimes. Clarence Bowman, assistant cashier of the First National bank, who has been manager of the local cleaxing house, tes tified that he had never heard of any payments of interest having been made to Grimes: knew nothing about it, and was excused. Then, owing: to the fact that Major William Sims, president of the First Na tional bank, is out of the city, and Mr. Freeman was excused until Wednesday morning, an adjournment was taken un til that time. The officers of the Bank of Topeka and State Savings bank will be sum moned for examination tomorrow. MONDAY AFTERNOON TESTIMONY. Continuing his testimony in the Grimes case Monday afternoon Mr. Ware said: "On my own behalf I object to being asked to give hearsay testimony in this or any other case." "Your objection is valid," said Mr. Doran. "Would you tell us who you heard this from ?" "No, I think I will not say," replied Mr. Ware. "All right, we'll pass you on that proposition," said Mr. Doran. "Is this information of such a nature as to be hearsay?" "Wholly so, because I have never seen Grimes in the bank; I have never seen anything which would cause me to suspect that Grimes was engaged in such a transaction. I once asked the president of the bank if such interest payments had or were being made, and he replied no." Mr. Ware further testified that no one had ever talked to him about such in terest payments. "I regard such trans actions as illegal and would have re membered it, had any one mentioned it to me." "One of the reasons why I resigned as a director of the Merchants National bank was because I objected to the bank's carrying so much state funds, I mean public funds because there were other funds which could be had." " Mr. Ware stated that he had no knowl edge of the payment of moneys by the Central National bank, of which he is now a director, to individuals or to com mittees for any purpose. Arthur Capper was the next witness. He interviewed Mr. Grimes at the state house, and said that Grimes had sug gested he call upon the bankers and ask for affidavits concerning the payment of interest on state funds. "You got ne?" said Doran, "Yes." "From whom?" " "The State Savings," "Did the others refuse?" "No, they did not refuse, but they gave several reasons why it would not be wise. Mr. Bonebrake said there was nothing in the charges and that the newspapers were working the case for a sensation." "Did Grimes tell you he wanted to hush the matter up?" "No." "What did Grimes say?" "That there was nothing in the charges and that he was being persecuted." "Did Grimes ask you to get the affi davits?" "No; I asked him about the case, and he simply suggested that I could get at it better by seeing the bank officers." Mr. Capper was excused, and a con troversy as to adjournment ensued. Mr. Garver and Mr. Hite again protested be cause no witnesses were present, but that fact caused the judge to grant the adjournment. POLITICAL BREVITIES.

John Stamper, nor Mrs. Stamper, that he was to get $5,000 for his testimony, nor that if he could see Colonel Campbell he could get $10,000. He denied all the statements attributed to him by the Stampers, L. F. Sinclair and others. W. H.

WHEAT Cables did not reflect our decline of yesterday and in consequence a little better feeling pre vailed among the local traders, who were the principal factors in the market to day. Northwest and St. Louis reported a better flour business today with Minneap olis mills again open. The northwest re ceipts are light, while clearances, princi pally flour, amounted to over half million bushels. Bradstreet's reports showing an increase of over four million bushels in world's visible was little noticed. Chang ing from November to December for ele vator interests still continues. A little selling by early buyers at the close gave us some set back from top prices, but close is firm and sentiment is rather bull ish. CORN Corn ruled very strong, new cr. p futures gaining He and holding it. Cables were steady and there was a brisk shipping demand, fully 500 000 t 'ken here. Country offerings light of both old and new corn. Total public and private stocks is about 4.000,0iXi bushels. October acts rather tight, offerings are limited none in position to sell, except holders and they don't keep October, on tap all the time. OATS Oats have been firm with th feature a little more outside demand for small lots. So far as big trade is c.n cerned, the day has been unimportant. Prices are up V to ic cn the increased outside interest. Receipts 407 cars, 20 Wednesday. PROVISIONS The selling of January ribs and lard by Lipton has been a fea ture in provisions today. Robson and Grelgg-Wolff have led the commission selling. October pnrk was offered at $1Y50. A good cash demand for lard reported. Product has been Irregular: lard rather easy; ribs steady. Shipment liberal. J. F. HARRIS. New York Up-Town Gossip. Furnished by J. C. Goings Commission Company, members Chicago Board of Trade, Topeka. New York, Oct. 16. The stock market has struck a pretty rapid pace. Whether it can keep It up remains to be seen. Some of the enthusiasts claim that the advance has only started and predict a rise of at least 5 points all along the list. Conservative people, on the other hand, are advising their friends to avoid the mistake of leading up with stocks on these sudden bulges. As is always the case when stocks are advancing, "every body becomes more or less excited and extravagant predictions are heard on all sides. All the old dead timber in the market brought in to prominence and buyers are so anxious to go with the tide that they are not as particular as they might be in regard to their choice of stocks. There is quite a list to seleot from, so no excuse can be advanced lor taking chances with trash. The latter will undoubtedly be given attention before the culmination of this bull movement. It i generally safe to begin taking profits when the very low-priced stocks come out from their seclusion. It is evident frt m the very large increase in the volume of specialties transaction that the buying in not all for the short account. All new orders to buy stock. Sellers are very scarce. The rise in prices has developed the fact that the short interest was much larger than generally estimated. It was particularly heavv in People's Gas. Su gar. Northern Pacific, the Grangers and Tennessee Coal and Iron. The oj.ini n among brokers last night was that nearly all the big bears had covered their lines and with the demand for stocks from this source pretty well satisfied buying from other quarters would have to mi.ke its appearance in order to prevent a sharp reaction In prices. The fact that there are more prominent people in Wall street at the present time than there has been for many months would indicate that the market is to be boosted still higher, and that notwithstanding the talk of a de cided slump before election dy. ftock are a purehase on the nof t pluce. An n Iht lnrne biock of gold ha be.-n i-iikkiI for shipment to this city and further import are looked for during the week. It i stated upon excellent authority that it ii the intention of the bnnks to brintr ov r between I5,oon,oon and 2ii.im.iih within th next fortnight.
