TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, THURSDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 18, 1000.
IN SMOKEAND FIRE
Republicans Hold Another Mon
ster Political Demonstration.
Forty Gross of lloman Candles
Set Street Ablaze.
MANY MARCHING CLUBS
They Parade on Kansas Avenue
Vf itli Bands of Music.
Got. Stanley Speaks to Thous
ands In the Auditorium.
Tire politicians have item saying that
the campaign is quiet, and that there
is not the enthusiasm that there used
to be when the great political struggles
w ere going on.
But a politician could not stand on
Kansas avenue last evening and say so
with impunity, for the sidevalks were
packed, and part of the street, with a
crowd waiting for the parade and fire
works. There were Democrats and Re
publicans, Populists and Prohibitionists,
Socialists and Mugwumps, women and
children, all out to see the show. Then
when the parade did move with Mar
shall's band in the lead, it moved in an
actual "blaze of glory." The three bands
and the drum corps pounded wind into
their instruments as best they could and
the Boys' liugle corps trump ted loud
as a herd of elephants, but the music
was only heard now and then above the
yells of Rough Riders and the sputter
and smoke of "Korean candles and
lockets that sizzed and screamed."
When the liambeau club commenced the
work of burning up forty-two gross of
candles the street looked like a fiery fur
nace and the parade seemed something
like a great dragon slowly crawling up
the street, emitting "great gobs of are."
Major Tom Anderson, leading the Ham
beaux. Uresst-d as Uncle Sam, looked
like Abednego just on the edge of that
extra hot Turkish bath. A man on
horsebeck rode before in true circus
fashion warning the people "to look out
for their hors.s." The Holton flambeau
club took part.
The parade turned east on Ninth street
ti Quincyand then north and paraded in
front of the Auditorium as long as the
fireworks lasted. The Auditorium was
quickly tilled and the overflow stood on
The outside and watched the display.
From the stage where Governor Stanley
cat one might believe he was in Morro
castle whiie the bombardment was going
on. The rockets and candles whizzed
past the windows, the powder smoke
wafted in through the doors, the rattle
of the muskets echoed and re-echoed
through the hall, and suddenly in
marched a company of Rough Riders,
as though they were about to capture
the place, and seated themselves di
rectly in front of the speakers' table.
The old soldiers marched in and sat on
the Ftage at the rear of the speakers
stand, and the three and a haif years
old Bon of ('. M. Stookham, dressed in
ills Rough Rider costume, sat in the
center of the stage. The six thousand
people in the building gazed at him and
Jie stared back without the least embar
rassment. Then Major Anderson sat
dtfwn beside.him, the audience applaud
ed, and the young Rough Rider looked
at the major in open-mouthed wonder.
The Twer.ty-third regiment band, sta
tioned on the platform, played a medley
of patriotic airs. When the band got to
"Marching through Georgia," the old
eoldiers yelled, clapped their hands,
pounded their red, white and blue um
brellas on the floor and waved their
hats. "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp" brought
eo much applause that the music was
lost in the tumult. A large flag was
suspended directly over the speakers'
ftt&nd, and when Governor Stanley re
ferred to it in patriotic phrases he lit
tle thought that Hugh Benner had to
"shin up" an inch and a. half iron rod
straight up for 20 feet to tie the cord
that held the flag.
MR. MULLEN SPEAK3.
When the last Roman candle had been
fired. Chairman James E. Larimer of the
Ehawnee county Republican central
committee called the meeting to order
and introduced James Mullen, of the
Santa Fe shops, an chairman of the
meeting. Mr. Mullen eaid:
"Four years ago we were engaged in
a rational campaign in this country, and
the two great political parties of the
nation were asking for the suffrage of
the voters. The Democratic platform
demanded a low tariff and free coinage
of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. William
McKinley, the leader of the Republican
party, stood upon a platform demand
ing the protection of American labor
nd an honest dollar. Mr. Bryan told
the people that if McKinley was elected
president and the gold standard pre
dominated that ruin would be the inev
itable consequences. Mr. McKinley said
that if Republican principles prevailed
That American labor and industries
would be protected and we would have
an honest dollar. We look back upon
the past three years and see which pre
diction came true. McKinley was right.
"The Democrats fear that the Repub
lican party will prepetrate a standing
army. The Democrats do not lige a
standing army, they went a moving
army of 3.000,000 laborers moving over
Hie country begging bread and march
Jug to Washington to ask a Democratic
i ongress for a chance to earn a living.
Vhev saw the sign 'keep off the grass.'
on Xovember 6 are we going to support
a man whose policy is to pull down
American industries or vote for a man
who ha stood by American labor? That
man who like the immortal Washington
is -first in war. first in peace, first in
1 he hearts of his countrymen,' William
McKinley. Will we support for vice
president a man that during the Civil
war was going around organizing
Knights of the Golden Circle or will we
support that magnificent statesman, that
galiant soldier, 'who sought not for
honor nor life's shallow fame, nor glory
rtor hope of renown, but who battled for
God. his country's fair name and the
flag that never came down,' Theodore
Roosevelt."
COVERXOR IS. INTRODUCED.
Following the chairman the "Little
"Prim" Quartette of colored singers sang
two political songs which won even
more applause than the mention of
Roosevelt's name. Governor Stanley
was introduced by Chairman Mullen as
'an executive whose administration has
been otie of the best if not the best."
Governor Stanley said: "This magnifi
cent meeeting- is not personal. I take it
that it a an expression of the people of
the interest they have taken in my weak
attempt to give a decent, honest admin
istration of state affairs. I have nothing
to say about the state affairs but will
ppeak on issues presented by the nation
al committee.
"Four years ago." he said, "we were
almost at the close of one of the most
memorable campaigns In the history of
the country. Every where there wtfs dis
satisfaction. Labor was unemployed,
business depressed and factories closed.
"AY ail agreed as to conditions, but
we differed about remedies. The Demo
crats said money was too dear and thi
free coinage of silver was the panacea
to restore a healthy tone to business. The.
Republicans replied all that wa needed
was a. return of confidence, which could
be obtained through the opening of the
factories and the employment of labor.
"Who was right? In the past four
years the prices of the products of the
farm have advanced nearly 50 per cent.
Th" average laboring man now receives
$6iS a year instead of $575. Everywhere
can be heard the song of plenty. N'o
more tioes the cynical man from Nebras
ka ask. 'Where is the General?' He is
here. lie has entered the homes of ths
rich and poor alike, bringing good cheer.
He has funned a dinner bucket brigade
larger than all the standing armies of
Europe.
"In 1S06 when you went away from
home you were ashamed to say you were
trom Kansas. You registered at the ho
tels as being from Missouri or Arkansas.
Oil. we are proud of Kansas now. Today,
all love the state where the sunflowers
grow.
"Bryan says the paramount issue of
the day is 'imperialism.' He goes about
the country saying that if he is not.
elected there will be no more Fourth of
July "Imperialism" is simply a Demo
cratic bugaboo: another name- for that
good old word expansion.
"In LS92 Dr. Bryan discovered a new
disease when he went into the practice
of political quackery. He found that
the body politic was sick. He felt the
pulse of his patient and instead of ask
ing the patient to stick out his tongue
he stuck out his own and he, prescribed
free trade. A Democratic house, senate
and president was elected. Four years
ago Dr. Bryan come again and said we
are suffering from the gold standard
and he prescribed as a remedy free sil
ver at the ra,tio of IS to 1. But Dr, Mc
Kinley was called in and planted the
banner of honest money. Dr. Bryan
comes again and says we are inflicted
with imperialism and if we don't stop
it we won't have any more Fourth of
July.
"t.'n to the present campaign the Dem
ocratic pprty has been proud of the fact
that the country expanded under its ad
ministrations. Away back in 1SS4 that
sentiment was Included in the national
platform and Republicans were taunted
because their party had been responsible
for the arquisition of only Alaska.
"When we came into possession of the
Philippines, as w did, and an insurrec
tion occurred, it was as much President
McKlnley's duty to put it down as if It
had occurred in some state.
" I don't believe it was an accident
that led to the acquisition of the Phil
ippines. I think some unseen guiding
hand led Dewey to Manila and placed
the responsibility of the control of the
Fli ippines upon the United States.
"Four years ago the Democrats said
prices are too low. and now they Bay
prices are too high. That reminds me
of the old Scotchman who had never
seen a railroad train. One day he went
to a tov-n and saw an engine and a
train standing on the track. He looked
the engine all over, and then said: "The
blamed thing won't run." Then the en
gineer got into the cab and pulled the
throttle, and away started the train.
The old Scotchman looked at it. and then
said: 'The blamed thing will never
stop." "
In closing his address, Governor Stan
ley said:
'Shawnee county always has stood far
out in the vanguard of Republican coun
ties or the state. When the election day
has passed and the grand old Republi
can party has rolled up a majority of
".5.000 in Kansas, I trust Shawnee county
will 5a f? no discordant note."
TALKS TO FARMERS.
Gloversville. N. Y., Oct. IS. Mr.
Bryan was received with cheers as his
train pulled into Fonda, N. Y. He ad
dressed his speech there especially to the
farmers, saying that the main reason
urged upon the farmers by the Republi
can orators as to why they should vote
the Republican ticket was that they had
good rains and must not take the risk
of a drought by voting any other ticket.
He contended that there could be no
prosperity sufficient to justify a farmer
In casting a vote which would involve
a change of the form of government,
such as was implied in supporting' the
Republican policy in the Philippines, The
Republican idea, Mr. Bryan said, seemed
to be that it was far better for the far
mer to be prosperous under an empire
than to take the chances of a reverse
under a republic. "They want you," he
said, "to sell your birthright for a mess
of pottage and they do not want to give
you an opportunity to lock at the pot
tage." Referring to the fact that there is a
considerable dairy interest at Fonda,
Mr. Bryan said that less than $2,000
worth of American butter had been sold
in the Philippines last year and he ask
ed the dairymen to put those figures
against their proposition of the taxes on
account of the army in the Philippines.
Mr. Bryan made twenty minute stops
at Johnstown find Gloversville. At
Johnstuwn he said amongst other things:
"In the early days they did not be
lieve that a man ought to vote upon a
subject in which he had a personal in
terest, as a member of congress or sen
ator, but now we can fill our congress
ami our senate with raiiroad presidents
and with trust magnates and let them
run their business through legislation
throueh neglect of the business of the
rest of the people." He added that he
believed that this accounted for the fact
that we now have a government in the
interest of the syndicates. Mr. Bryan
also made a. reference to the prevailing
industry of Johnstown, which is giove
making, and pointed out what he be
lieved would be the danger attending a
consolidation of these interests with
others, in a trust. He also discussed the
Philippine and army questions.
LESS CORDIAL.
Little Falls. N. Y., Oct. IS. Mr.
Bryan's speech at Gloversville Was made
from a temporary platform erected near
the railroad track. There was a large
audience at that point, but apparently
the greeting was less Cordial, than at
other places. Some boys hissed as he
went through the crowd, and there were
queries about the Ice trust and free
silver. Mr. Bryan declared that the Re
publican party was placing the cam
paign upon a lower level than any pre
vious campaign had ever been placed
upon, because it was appealing to the
stomach entirely, and ignoring all the
higher instincts of the race. In the
early part or his speech Mr. Brvan ob
served a fence upon which a number of
persons were sitting, and he said:
"I am afraid they are on a Republican
pit; t form, and it is breaking down."
Noting Rome of the interruptions he
remarked: "From some remarks that
have been made in this audience I am
afraid there are some people here who
will never have an objection to the trust
until they themselves become its vic
tims. I have seen people who have
learned by experience in the last four
years what they ought to have learned
by reason years ago. Whether your in
dustries have been consolidated or not.
is not the question. Whether there is
any plan now on foot to consolidate
them is not a question that ought to de
termine your vote. The question is
this: Is the Republican party permit
ting the monopolization of the great
branches of industry? and you can not
evade it."
At this point some one in the audi
ence interrupted Mr. Bryan with an in
quiry about the ice trust.
Mr. Bryan made his usual reply, to
the effect that all the directors of that
trust are Republicans, and the suppres
sion of it is in the hands of the gov
ernor of the state.
WARNING POSTERS PASTED IT.
Little Falls, N. Y.. Oct. IS. The Bryan
train stopped only five minutes at Fort
Plain, but Mr. Bryan was warmly greet
ed there by a crowd which was largs
for the size of the town. Discussing
trusts he said that the Republicans must
admit in view of their record upon the
trust question that they either do not
want to discuss it or' that they do not
know how. If the people wanted to get
rid of trusts their only remedy, he said,
was to vote against the Republican
party, which was fostering them. This
was also the remedy, according to his
view, for a large standing army and for
the colonial policy.
At most of his stopping places today
Mr. Bryan was confronted by large and
conspicuously posted bills warning the
people against him. These bills an
nounced in large red letters "Bryan 19
here," and then gave extracts from his
speeches made at Knoxville, Tenn., in
lssti, and at Zanesville, O., last Septem
ber, and then added:
"This means national dishonor and in
dustrial collapse."
"A vote for Bryan is a vote for low
wages, or no wages."
"Bread riots and soup houses."
"Hard times."
In his speech at Gloversville Mf.
Bryan referred particularly to the dan
ger of glove trusts affecting the county
of Fulton to a large degree. In responsa
to inquiries he said that he would de
stroy trusts by removing the tariff from
ail goods which they manufactured in
order to prevent an increase in prices at
home, and so they could not sell goods
abroad in competition with foreign man
ufacturers. He ignored queries regard
ing silver. He said he would if elected
immediately give independence to the
natives of the Philippine islands and
then protect them from outside inter
ference. The crowd which greeted Mr.
Bryan was composed of several thou
sand people, but there was no marked
enthusiasm. The candidate asserted
that the crowd would have been larger
if the manufacturers of the city had not
prevented their employes from leaving
their work in order to hear him.
AN UM1IUXG DANCER.
Chief Recommendation of Gueen "Wll
helmina'a Fiance.
Berlin, Oct. 18. The announcement of
Queen Wilhelmina's bethrothal has been
sympathetically received by the whole
German press, although nearly all the
papers point out that the event is de
void cl political significance. Attention
however, is called to the fact that her
choice can not fail to strengthen the ties
of friendship between the two countries.
Mention is made of the close relations of
language, race and literature and of the
fact that the queen's mother was born
in Germany.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press learns from a reliable source' that
her choice is her own, and against the
wishes of the Dutch cabinet, who desir
ed her to wait for another year or two
until her Judgment was more mature.
She took the matter into her own hands.
When she visited Potsdam a year ago,
everybody expected that her choio
would be Prince Joachim Albrecht of
Prussia, who paid court to her assidu
ously and rescued her and the queen
mother from a serious accident while
they were driving in the San Souci park.
At that time she seemed to be serious
ly smitten, the prince being tall, good
looking and amiable, but it is under
stood that she yielded to the strong ob
jections of the Dutch cabinet, who urged
that an alliance with a Prussian prince
might bring political entanglements.
The young duke is in habits and man
ner a typical German officer. He has
traveled in India and to the North Cape.
Recently he has been much in evidence
in Berlin and Potsdam and in court,
military and diplomatic society where
he is appreciated as an indefatigable
dancer. He is also a fine equestrian.
Hia brother, Duke Adolf Frederick, is
a noted steeple chaser.
A STORMY TOY AGE.
Steamer Lane Haa a Perilous Trip
Down Prom Nome.
Port Townsend, Oct. 18. After a tem
pestuous voyage marked by a thorough
break down of the motive power, an
overloading of passengers and a scarcity
of provisions the steamship Charles D.
Lane reached port this morning, 17 days
from Nome.
The boilera of the Lane leaked so bad
ly as to extinguish the fires and make
an explosion imminent. For four and
one-third days the vessel was tossed by
the waves, absolutely helpless, not be
ing provided with sufficient sail to keep
head on to the storm, even had the wind
been favorable. After a period of ter
rible anxiety among both passengers
and crew Mr. Molander, an expert boil
er maker, who was on board, repaired
the boilers so it was possible to get up
steam.

EM?ARGOJAISED.
Live Stock Commission Gives
Up Tuberculosis Quarantine.
End of a Troublesome and Bit
ter Controversy.
POLITICS IN THE ORDER
Votes of the Cattlemen Are au
Object.
Slight Excuse Made For the Ac
tion of Board.
' The Kansas quarantine against the
shipment into the state of dairy and
breeding cattle from states having tuber
culosis in that class of cattle has been
raised by Governor Stanley upon the
recommendation of the state live stock
sanitary commission.
The governor's- official utterance in
connection with this subject follows:
"In accordance with the recommenda
tion of the liver stock sanitary commis
sion, 1 41a hereby proclaim and declare
that the quarantine established March
1, 1900, against the introduction of cat
tle into theJ state of .Kansas, from the
states of Maine, New Hampshire, Ver
mont, . Massachusetts, Rhode Island,
Connecticut, New York, New Jersey,
Delaware, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky,
Tennessee, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois,
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Ne
braska, be, and the same is hereby
raised, and that the iules and regulations
promulgated March 1, 1900, be suspend
ed, from and after October 18, 1900."
The state Jive stock sanitary commis
sion, which the governor has often said
"is a useless board" recommended the
Euspension of this quarantine because
the court3 of Illinois are considering the
legality of rules and regulations pro
mulgated by the commission in that
state.
In the supreme court of Illinois a ,'Uit
ia pending, the decision of which A'ill
gnvern the movement of cattle and the
legality of the requirement of the ap
plication of tuberculin to ascertain
whether or not cattle are afflicted with
tuberculosis.
Pending this decision the live stock
sanitary commission of Illinois has sus
pended the rule.
When the action of the Illinois com
mission was made known in Missouri
that state's commission suspended the
tuberculosis quarantine. So, the Kansas
commission found out what was going
on and suspended its tuberculosis quar
antine. lattlemen who are Interested In this
subject fail to understand why Kansas
rules and regulations should be suspend
ed pending a decision as to the legality
of Illinois regulations.
However, this tuberculosis quaran
tine has been done away with and the
tight between the shippers and breeders
of fancy cattle and those who handle
only stackers and feeders has been aban
doned. This has been one of the moot
spirited conflicts that have occurred be
tween these two classes of business for
'..any years and it is the only quarrel
among cattlemen which has reached the
governor.
Some of the fancy cattle shippers
headed by C. A. Stannard of Emporia,
the owner of Sunny Slope farm, ap
pealed to the governor to have this
tuberculosis quarantine removed. Mr.
Stannard, at a hearing held by the gov
ernor, openly charged that this quaran
tine was being maintained by the com
mission as an obstacle in the way of the
fancy breeders' progress.
To this M. H. Campbell, chairman of
the commission made an indignant reply
and claimed that Mr. Stannard's motive
in impugning the intention of the com
mission to protect the cattle industry of
the state was purely for the purpose of
developing the opportunity for the ship
pers of that class of cattle to Indulge in
speculation. Mr. Campbell pointed out,
in his opinion, the fact that the ship
ment and handling of stockers and feed
ers in this state is far !.i excess of the
volume of dairy and breeding cattle
shipments and suggested that what was
protection for one class of business
might be valuable for the same purpose
to others. To this view the Stannard
sympathizers took exceptions and re
newed the charges that the state com
mission was guided by selfish motives.
Mr. Stannard did not make a case
against the board at that time, so the
governor declined to raise the quaran
tine. Now the slight excuse that Illinois has
raised its quarantine gives the Kansas
commission an opportunity to lift the ob
jectionable Kansas quarantine just a
few weeks before election.
The present commission has always
been unpopular with the cattlemen in
Kansas and this action in calling upon
the governor to revoke the tuberculosis
quarantine can not be regarded as any
thing but an effort on the part of the
members of this commission to make
peace with the cattle interests before
those interested pay their respects at the
polls. However. Governor Stanley's ac
tion is only perfunctory so far as issuing
tha proclamation is concerned. The law
provides that he shall issue proclama
tions ordered -by the . commission.
