STAND-UP FIGHT PROMISED. Kailroads and Scalpers Will Struggle For Supremacy In Congress. The nxt congress will be a battle ground for a square standup fight be tween the railroads and ticket scalpers. At its convention in Buffalo this weeK the American Association of General passenger and Ticket agents resolved Itself into a veritable declaration of un ceasing hostility against scalping tick ets. Not only was it decided to adopt eafetv paper and a uniform contract for printing interline tickets, but steps were taken toward the formation of a gigan tic protective bureau for the detection of manipulation and the prosecution of the manipulators. The proposed bureau maintained bv all the important rail loads of the United States, Canada and Mexico, wiil really be a monster detec tive agency, with many branches. Its agents to be stationed in all the princi pal railway centers of the continent. They intend to have introduced a bill In congress, also, to legislate the cut rate men out of existence. On the other side the American Ticket Brokers' association is going into the battle in earnest in opposing the pro posed legislation. They are aiso strong ly organized and have already begun lobbying to defeat it. The strong fight they are making is based on the pro position that any bill which would wipe cut a legitimate business Is unconstitu tional. "WESTBOUND BATES. Trunk Line Association Will Scold Hard to Restore Freight Traffic Tsew Tork. Oct. 20. For the purpose of considering what can be done to im prove the situation on westbound rates to Mississippi and Missouri river points, the traffic managers of the various trunk lines are holding a protracted meeting at the offices of the Trunk Line association. A similar meeting was held lour weeks ago at which the western connections were requested not to in terfere with rates out of Trunk Line territory. Although as a result, strict orders were sent out by those lines to their eastern agents to adhere absolute ly to tariff rates, the improvement in the situation has been slow and is not jet satisfactory. It has therefore been 6C l-ztj Breaks up Colds that Iiaug on, "77" breaks up Coughs, Colds. Bron chitis, Hoarseness, Laryngitis, Catarrh, Influenza, Sore Throat.

It is hoped that the result will be a complete re-establishment of rates within a few weeks. That the object will be accomplished is doubted by at least one representa tive of the interested lines. This repre sentative seems to believe that there will be manipulation of rates so long as agents to make a good showing and that even a blind money pool such as is in existence between trunk lines in westbound business, can not prevent rate cutting. In support of this theory he cites complaints from some of the smaller roads that they are not getting their allottment of freight, although, of course, they are sure of ultimately get ting their percentage of the business in cash. CANADIAN PACIFIC THREATS. May Shatter California Rates, Involv ing Santa Fe and Other Lines. Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. 20. The celebrated agreement to cease payment of commis sions on passenger business is in immi nent danger of being broken by the Canadian Parific railroad, a line whose strength and influence might; cause a complete dissolution of the agreement. In this city the advisory committee of the Western Passenger association, com posed -of representatives of the Union Pacific, Santa Fe, Burlington, Rock Isl and, St. Paul antl Missouri Pacific lines, met with Robert Kerr, passenger traffic manager of the Canadian Pacific, for the purpose of arriving at a settlement of the trouble that long has existed be tween the Dominion carrier and the competitive tTnited States roads. The break In the agreement hinges on the willingness of the United States roads to pay to the Canadian Pacific about $113,000, which the Canadian Pa cific claims is due it as a part of its di vision of former immigrant business. For months the other lines have stead fastly maintained that the Canadian Pa cific's claim was not just, and appar ently they still maintain such. The Canadian Pacific is said to have given the advisory committee to under stand that it would not budge an inch in its stand, and that if the demand was not satisfied the road would take steps to secure a proper proportion of all im migrant business from the principal Atlantic cotist. points. Should the Canadian Pacific cancel all allegiance to the agreement pessimistic passenger officials believe one of the most disastrous rate wars of the age would result. The Canadian Pacific would be expected to shatter standard tariffs to California and northern Pa cific coast states, thus involving the Santa Fe. the Southern Pacific, the Northwestern, the Union Pacific, the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern as foremost principals in the struggle. SHOP FOREMAN RESIGNS. General Foreman, Frank J. Gunther, Will Retire Nov. 1. After being whispered about for sev eral days it has become definitely known that Frank J. Gunther, general foreman of the Santa Fe shops in this city, has tendered his resignation which is to take effect November 1. Mr. Gunther's suc cessor is to be F. P. Hickey, who is now foreman of the Norfolk & Western roundhouse at Kenova. For the past ten of his seventeen years' service with the Santa Fe, Mr. Gunther has been general foreman of the entire Santa Fe shops. He has al ways rated high as a mechanic, been esteemed for his uniform treatment to the men and retained their good will. Mr. Gunther started to work for the road as a machinist. In the course of his rise he was successively gang boss and foreman of the south erecting room. Mr. Gunther retires to private life, it is said. Though there is no outward manifestation, undoubtedly there is some disappointment among those in line for promotion to the vacancy that civil service rules did not obtain in the appointment of his successor. C. R. GRAY'S APPOINTMENTS, Some Changes Made by the Frisco's New Superintendent. Two circulars issued this week from the office of C. R. Gray, superintendent of transportation of the St. Louis and San Francisco railroad, read as follows: Mr. J. H.

"Will Hamilton, traveling engineer, was in town Wednesday. Three hundred and eighty-nine cars of cattle went through Monday night and Tuesday morning. Another brakeman has been put on the 65S6 run. This makes three brake men on that run. A broken pushing arm on the turn table and a broken pilot on an engine are the results of an attempt to put an engine on the turn-table Tuesday night. One of the new men at the pit started to move an engine from over the pit to the turn-table. He could not stop, and as the table was not set right, the front end of the engine struck one of the pushing arms, otherwise it would have gone into the pit. FROM NEWTON. Tom Hodgson has accepted a position in the round-house, and is working on the gaslight shift. H. L. Brunner has resumed charge of the day engine in the machine shop. He has been working nights for a month, and still carries a torch around with him to enable him to distinguish an object. Val Fayette was sent to Dodge City the other night, where he will be sta tioned for the next thirty days in charge of the boiler works there. Val will be able to write "Iman" after his name one of these days. Gus Base resumed work in the round- Farmer Thrifty got the idea that if he could keep a horse without the cost of feeding, it would be a great economy, so he reduced the horse's food a little every day. Unfortunate ly just as the experiment promised to succeed, the horse laid down and died. Fa r m e r Hard sense says Farmer Thrifty was a fool. But there are people as much worse than old Thrifty as it is more foolish to work your own body under starvation conditions, than your horse's. But every farmer has plenty to eat. Yes, but it isn't what is eaten, it is what nourish ment is obtained from food that decides the question of starvation. It wouldn't do the farmer any good to run a stack of wheat through a thrashing machine which was so out of gear that it didn't fet the grain out of one head of wheat in fty. That's just the way with the dis ordered stomach. It doesn't get the good out of the food that is eaten. There is no medicine will so quickly act on the organs of digestion and nutri tion, and put the stomach in perfect working order, as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It makes pure blood, and rich blood, and puts the body on a plane of perfect health. " I suffered for six years with constipation and Indigestion, during Which time I employed phy sicians, but they could not reach my case,' writes Mr. G. Popplewell, of Eurefca Springs, Carroll Co., Arkansas. " I felt there was no help for me. Two years ago I commenced tak ing Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and little Pellets,' and improved from the start. I am now in good health."

This Is the first time Gus has done a day's work In about two weeks, having been a member of a fishing party which camped on Turkey creek for some time. Brakeman Walter Burke, of Great Bend, has asked for a few weeks' leave of absence and will depart in the Deal future for a visit in several of the big cities of the east. Walter is looking for ward to a grand old time, and he will have it if it is to be had. AT JUNCTION CITY. Night caller Emit Houston has been slightly under the weather. Mr. Lute Chase has returned from the hospital at Kansas City. He is feeling much better. The M. K. & T. transferred eight cars of stock to the U. P. for Kansas City Thursday night. Brakeman Patterson was quite badly hurt while going to Ellis. The accident occurred Tuesday at Hays City. He was getting on the caboose and in so doing fell under, and was dragged along three or four hundred feet. His back and hip were bruised and his face was dis figured. The ends of his fingers were also mashed. RAILROAD IfOTES. H. C. Bush, general agent of the Colo rado Midland railroad San Francisco, has been selected as general traffic manager of the road.

MARYLAND Governor Roosevelt Closes Ills Tour of West Virginia With a Great Night Meeting at Charleston. Hinton, W. Va., Oct. 20. Governor Roosevelt and party closed their tour of West Virginia last night after one of the longest journeys in his trip. Start ing from Parkersburg, on the upper Ohio, in the morning he made speeches at dif ferent points along the Ohio river, nota bly at Point Pleasant and Huntington anlS front the latter place started up the Great Kanawha valley, making speech es along the way and going across the river at Charleston to witness a great demonstration at the state capitol and make an address of some length at the wigwam. At some places In the mining regions there was a liberal use of pow der In the cannonading as the special train arrived and the miners got up all sorts of demonstrations in honor of the vice presidential candidate. From Charleston the special train proceeded over the Chesapeake and Ohio railway directly across the mountains where the popula tion was not so dense as along the rich valleys through which he passed during the day. Governor Roosevelt passes next into Maryland and thence into his own state. Charleston, W. Va, Oct. 20 Testerday was, politically speaking, the greatest day in the history of this city for years. Early trains and steamers brought hun dreds of people to hear Governor Roose velt. From sections of the contiguous territory, where no other conveyance could be had the people came to town afoot, on horseback and in country wagons. Women and children wei'e largely in evidence and they "camped out" until nearly a thousand horses and probably twice as many footmen began to move. Governor Roosevelt and party reached here at 3:45 p. m. and were met at the depot by an escort. Governor Atkinson was traveling with Governor Roosevelt and they went direct to the "wigwam." which was so crowded that it required strong efforts to press through the im mense throng to the speaker's stand. Governor Roosevelt spoke for twenty minutes. Soon after he started speaking a por tion of the roof of the . .ijvvam gave way, caused by the great strain on it. No one was hurt and quiet was soon re stored. Governor Roosevelt referred to Mr. Bryan's connections with men who are his associates and who are directly in terested in trusts. He further referred to Mr. Bryan In his New York trip as teach ing fallacies and David B. Hill came in for a touch-up on his connection with corporations and trusts. Governor Roosevelt began his tour of this state early in the morning, his train departing from Parkersburg over the Ohio River railway at 5 a. m. The first stop was at Ravenswood and the second at Mason City. At each place good sized audiences heard brief speeches from the rear platform of the train. Governor Roosevelt spoke in his accustomed strain, urging Republicans to help -maintain prosperity and ridiculing the Democratic cry of imperialism. At Point Pleasant Governor Roosevelt and party left the train to address a large crowd from a platform in the town. At Huntington there was a large demonstration and a street parade. At Charleston Governor Roosevelt said: "Mr. Bryan has claimed to be against trusts, yet Mr. Bryan's own manager, Senator Jones, is not only the chief bene ficiary of the cotton bale trust, but he quibbles about, it and says it is not a trust. Mr. Bryan was the guest of Mr. Croker in New York, and if he is cor rectly quoted says Mr. Croker is the greatest man in the world and Tammany hall the greatest organization in the world. Let me tell you, though, that the gentleman who presided over the Bryan meeting in New York was Ed ward M. Shepard, counsel for the great sugar trust, one of whose prominent members, by the way, is reputed also to be among the foremost promoters of the cotton bale trust. This counsel for the sugar trust introduced Mr. Bryan, whose thesis is denunciation of trusts. Mr. Croker, who is the only man through whom Mr. Bryan can hope to be elect ed, and who was the chief spirit on that occasion, denounces trusts in his public capacity, while in his private capacity he promotes a trust that in my opinion Is an iniquitous one Ex-Senator Hill, who is also supporting Mr. Bryan in denouncing trusts, is counsel for the cor porations endeavoring to break down the franchise tax law. Mr. Bryan is Intro duced and championed by these three men and is being managed by Senator Jones. "Now, understand me; I do not enter into the merits of these trusts, save that I believe the ice trust, not only from the character of the commodity in which it deals, but from Its connec tion with the leading local politicians, can properly be denounced a3 iniqui tous. 45till, I have no question that there are plenty of fairly honest men who have gone into these trusts simply as a business matter, as they would go into any corporation; but what I want to emphasize is the utter hypocrisy of using another trust as a party shibbo leth in the Bryanized Democracy when the prominent leaders of that party have private ownership in the very trusts which they ostentatiously denounce. "Mr. Bryan is making every effort to carry New York, and he knows his sole chance a very small one, gentlemen lies in the Crokerized Democracy of that state using every means at its command. When Mr. Bryan allies himself to Mr. Croker and is the beneficiary of all for which Mr. Croker stands, he forfeits the right to be treated as sincere in his op position to trusts, "We have often been told that Mr. Bryan must be pardoned for his crude and raw theories of finance and econom ics, and even for his aiding and abetting the Malay bandits who are shooting down our soldiers in the Philippines, upon the ground that he has good inten tions; that he is sincere in his denun ciations of wrong. I do not see how such a claim can be urged by the guest of the Tammany Democracy, one of the foundations of which is blackmailing the protected vice and infamy that in New York city flourishes with hideous rankness under Tammany's control. Mr. Croker is trying to help Mr. Bryan to a national success which would mean the deepest stain upon our financial honor at home, the deepest stain on the honor of our flag abroad. In .return. Mr. Bryan Is trying to help Mr. Croker to bring down the state of New York to the level of the coarse and vicious evil to which New York city has been already reduced." HANNAJBETS &1AD Makes Bitter Personal Attack on Col. Bryan In a Speech at That Gentle man's Home City. Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 20. "A man who knowingly or unknowingly will circu late slanders about another man is not fit to be constable," said Senator Hanna in his speech at the Oliver House in Lin coln last night, in referring to William J Bryan. In the speech which was one of the lengthiest delivered on his pres ent tour. Senator Hanna bitterly de nounced Mr. Bryan for what he termed "his attempts to slander me in my own state." This is Mr. Bryan'3 home town and the speech of Senator Hanna was received with mingled cheera and hisses. The first of the two days speech mak ing in Nebraska by Senators Hanna and Frye culminated last night in three big meetings here, including an open air meeting in front of the Lincoln hotel. Only two meetings had been planned, but so tremendous were the crowds that attempted to force their way into the opera house and the Auditorium to hear Senator Hanna that he was finally ask ed to address an overflow meeting from the balcony of the hotel. Excursion trains were run into Lincoln from many points in eastern and central Nebraska and the parade which took place includ ed a dozen of the town uniformed marching clubs, among them several women's organizations. " Escorted by the Lincoln Traveling Men's Marching club and several uni formed marching organizations, Sena tors Hanna and Frye were escorted from the train to the Lincoln hotel. Immedi ately after dinner.Senator Hanna stand ing on the balcony of the hotel shook hands for some time with the crowds that filed by. So great was their num ber that Senator Hanna was finally compelled to beat a retreat. Shortly after 8 o'clock the parade formed and amid a blaze of flambeaux and fireworks. Senator Hanna and Vic tor Dolliver were escorted to the Oliver House, Senator Frye going to the Aud itorium. When Senator Hanna was Introduced he was received with a roar of applause. Senator Hanna spoke at some length, taking up the silver and anti-imperialist issues and finally referred to the charges which Mr. Hanna said had re cently been made by Mr. Bryan, that the Republican campaign managers had en tered upon extensive bribery in order to secure the election of the Republican ticket. "In regard to that statement," said Senator Hanna, "before an audience in Lincoln . I want to hurl it back in his teeth and fell him it is utterly false.

She says: 1 take great pleasure in acknowl edging the curative effects of Peruna. Last year my system was completely run down, and our family physician suggested that I take a trip to re cuperate. "My sister-in-law then asked me to try Peruna, first telling me how it had helped her. I did so, and found three bottles as good as a three weeks' vacation. I shall always speak well of it in the future." Emma Herziger. Peruna has been endorsed by over 50,000 prominent citizens of the United States, including the following prominent persons : Senor Quesada, of the Cuban Lega tion, of Washington, D. C. Booker T.

Atkinson, of W. Va. can people on my record as a business man and let him stand on his. I have been in business 40 years; I am employ ing 6,000 men, pay the highest wages, treat them like men and they all respect me, and when Mr. Bryan or any other man charges upon me and I am willing to appropriate it all, as I am chairman of that board of managers of this Re publican campaign with any such methods as those, I propose as I said to hurl it "back and denounce him as a demagogue in his own town." Senator Hanna then referred toMr.Bry an's alleged reference to him as "a la borer crusher" made first during his senatorial campaign in 1S97, and contin ued: "I want to remind every man that a man who in a contest will drag an hon orable name into the mire for the sake of making votes is not worthy to be considered for the high office of presi dent of the United States and I believe that there are thousands of people in the state of Nebraska who resent it as an Insult to their integrity and their ideas of fair play and justice, because when a man has the opportunity through newspapers, through public ros trum to make charges too trifling to be denied and those charges go undenied and enter into the minds of the people whom the man so charged has no op portunity to convince any man who will use those tactics to further his own sel fish ambition is not fit to be constable." From the Auditorium Senator Hanna was driven to the Lindell hotel, w here he spoke for about five minutes. Here again there was much confusion and hisses and shouts for Bryan mingled with cheering. Senator Hanna was driven to the audi torium. He spoke for about twenty minutes, discussing industrial conditions for the most part. He received an ova tion when he concluded, and the crush to shake hands with him was so great that the police had to clear the way to the carriage. With prosperity as his principal topic of discussion Senator Hanna traveled through the eastern tier of counties of Nebraska yesterday making speeches in over a dozen cities and towns and wind ing up at Lincoln. His speeches as a rule were more lengthy than those of any previous day of the tour, and In order to complete the programme the first speech, at Sioux City, la., occurred before 8 o'clock. Small crowds, made up mostly of farmers, were present at Humphrey and Piatt Center, and Senator Hanna divided his time between making short addresses and handshaking. A more extended stop was made at Columbus. In this district the Populist vote is in a large majority, and Senator Hanna spoke at some length to a large crowd. The run between Columbus and Schuy ler, sixteen miles, was made in eighteen minutes. At Schuyler Senator Hanna was given a new name by the local chairman. "Fellow citizens, I want to introduce to you the man who commands the sun sometimes, if he wants to," said he. "Well, I wish I could command every son of a gun of a Populist in this state," said Senator Hanna, amid laughter, "and that of ever good Democrat, too, because, my friends, I want the people of this state and this county to fully appreciate and understand the import ance of this election." Afore rapid running time was made between Schuyler and North Bend. Here the track mns through the fertile Thousands of Chronic Ailments of Women Cured Every Month.

Address Dr. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio, valley of the Platte river, part of the time along its flat banks, and a speed of between sixty and sixty-five miles an hour was reached. At North Bend Mr. Hanna was presented with a big bunch of flowers by a delegation of little girls. An enormous crowd turned out to hear Mr. Hanna at Frtinont, where the speak ing took place from the front steps of the court house nearly every window of which displayed a large lithograph of Mr. Bryan. In his address here Mr. Hanna was frequently interrupted by the blowing of a nearby whistle, and finaly with a twinkle In his eye he said : "It must be that Mr. Bryan has hold of that valve and is trying to shut me off." Wahoo, the last stop before reaching Lincoln, gave Senator Hanna the best reception of the day. Excursion trains from nearby towns and villages brought several hundred people, and Senator Hanna was given an ovation as he stepped from the train. A unique fea ture of the procession from the depot to the speaking stand was three women's uniformed clubs, the Ida McKinley club of Wahoo, the Edith Roosevelt club of Mead and the Ashland marching club, all of the members being dressed in the national colors. At Winside. a little hamlet In the midst of the corn country, Mr. Hanna saw the following banner as he stepped out on the car platform: "Populist farmers, beware; chain your children to yourselves, or put 'em under the bed Mark Hanna is in town." "Oh, I am not so dangerous as all that," said he, laughingly pointing to the banner. Prosperity as the issue was de bated by Hanna for five minutes, the farmers composing the audience cheer ing him until the train was far from the station. BREIDEM1IAL ACTIVE.
