Tincent Asks For a Series of Joint Debates. Challenge Ignored by the Re publican Managers. WANTS SIX MEETINGS. Mr. Tincent Suggests the Coun ty Seat Towns. No Restrictions Except Equal Division of Time. The serenity of the congressional cam paign in the Fifth district has been dis turbed by a challenge from W. D. Vin cent, the fusion nominee, for a series of joint debates with Congressman Cal derhead, the Republican nominee for re election. Up to date Mr. Calderhead has ignored the challenge, which, was issued as a personal letter, under date of October 20, at Clay Center, as follows: "W. A. Calderhead, Marysville, Kas.: "Dear Sir The campaign i3 drawing to a close, and as the voters are always anxious to hear both sides of the issues from the platform, I desire to say that I will be pleased to meet you in joint discussion of the political issues at six of the county seat towns in the Fifth congressional district, commencing Oc tober 29, closing November 3. All I ask is an equal division of the time. An early reply will greatly oblige. "Yours truly, "W. D. VINCENT." The letter was probably received by Mr. Calderhead Saturday or Sunday, and his managers have not made pub lic their reply if any has been made. The Reublican politicians are laugh ing at what they term "Vincent's effort to get crowds by asking Calderhead to divide the time with him." The Fifth district is debatable ground and the fusionists seem confident of carrying it and electing Vincent. On the other hand, the Republicans say Mr. Vincent has not the slightest show and that Calderhead will defeat him by a larger majority than he did in 1S98, at which time he carried the district by nearly 2,800. Honors up to date have been even. Vincent has defeated Calderhead once, and Calderhead has defeated Vincent once. The present race might be termed the "rubber," and the opposing elements are doing everything possible that is considered beneficial to the cause which they represent. TR0OMAN OX BETTING. Admits That the Republican Have More Money. Carl Vrooman, of Parsons, one of the directors of the Fusion campaign, reply ing to the charges that the party which he represents fears to bet on the result of the Kansas election, has prepared and made public the following statement: "The Republicans are all afraid to bet their own money this year, Dut nere ana there all over the state are scattered lit tle local healers who have a graft on Mark Hanna's slush fund for bluffing purposes. Their instructions are to cre ate all the noise possible, to claim every thing in sight and to offer all kinds of money on the results of the election, but when they are pinned down to wiggle out of it, if possible, and in no case to bet a cent, if it can be avoided. "It has been amazing to me to find that this cheap and absolutely pointless performance has actually caused some of our fellows to feel downhearted and discouraged. These offers to bet Repub lican slush funds have only one mean ing. They mean that 99 millionaires and trusts out of every hundred in the coun try are in the Republican party, that consequently a part of the money, which they by means of the Republican ad ministration, are fleecing the people out of, they have contributed to the colossal campaign slush fund which Mark Han na has raised to bluff, bet and boodle with. Let no man be surprised that they are able to flash more of the 'long green' than we can. If money is to decide the election we were beaten before we started. But, thank God, on November 6 occurs not a gambling contest but a voting contest and that's where the common people win. Voting, not betting, is their long suit. I want to emphasize and insist that the Fusion forces must make no effort whatever to cover the Re publican slush fund bets offered. We know a game worth two of that. Don't let them distract our attention and keep us from making our aggressive, cease less and irresistible fight for principles from now until Bryan is safely elected. "When they boast of McKinley money in the bank waiting for takers, use that money for a text and hold them up to the scorn of decent men. Tell them that the very money they boast of is the sign and seal of their degradation. It is the price of the prostitution of a once glorious nartv; it is the scarlet letter which re veals to the world their shame. To what depths has a party fallen when, losine its principles and selling itself to the highest bidder. It is forced to confess that its sole reliance fur success is in the power of un limited boodle. "Women rarelv resort to rouge until the bloom of nature's roses has faded from heir cheeks. A man who can onlv work when full of whfrky and morphine is in the last stages of disease and dcay. Likewise a party whiohi barely keeps up a polluted existence by means of b'uff ing. boodling and intimidation, is not only unfit to receive the support or finy hnne t man, but is trembling and tottering in the last stages of degeneration and decom position. Success won at such a price is sort-lived. We have seen four years of it, we are about to witness its collapse. "When a Republican offers to bet, let every fttsionist at once challenge him to a joint debate. We are as rich in principles as they are in boodle. Let us force the fight in our own way, with our own weap ons, and the battle is ours." CHICKASHA'S PR031ISE. Rock Island Builds Standpipe and Other Improvements. W. R. Cannon, superintendent of bridges and building of the Rock Is land's Southern division, returned to Chiekasha today. He is supervising the finishing touches to the Chiekasha branch. One of the works under way is the construction of a $2,500 standpipe at this division point, similar to those erect ed at Horton and Fairbury. Regarding the improvements under way there Superintendent Cannon said: "Tracks are being extended and the station is being enlarged. We are put ting in a dispatcher's office and a read ing room for employes. Business, both for the railroad and mercantile enter prises is making big increasesi right along and In my opinion this thriving town will -develop into the leading city of the Kiowa country when it is openeu up to settlement."

Valuable Etchings and Prints on Ex hibition at First M. E. Church. The Ladies' Society of the First Meth odist church have made an art display in the church parlors of engravings from a great many of the most noted and famous pictures of the world. The pictures are from the Messrs. Keppel & Co. of New York city and number nearly four hundred. The dis play began last evening and will con tinue during the week from 10 a, m. un til 10 p. m., ending Friday night. The money derived from the admis sions and the sale of programmes will be used in part payment of the new carpet and church decorations which the Ladies' society has been to the trouble to pro vide for the church during the past sum mer. The pictures are tastefully arranged along the walls and on forms through the center of the rooms. The best set of engravings and the set which attracts the most attention is the set of seven pictures engraved h Holloway from the originals by Raphael which includes "Christ's Charge to Peter," "Peter and John at the Beauti ful Gate," "The Death of Ananias," "Miraculous Draught of Fishes," "Paul Preaching at Athens," "Elymas Struck With Blindness," and "Paul and Barnabas." Notable among this set is the engraving "Peter and John at the Beautiful Gate." The columns in this picture are exact fac-simile3 of the col umns in Solomon's temple. The collection of portrait pictures is notably good, it including three of the engravings which rank first among the engravings of the world. Perhaps the best one is of Shakespeare by Flameng. The other two are of John Stuart Mill and Alfred Tennyson, by Rajon. One of the most beautiful engravings in the collection is the "Destruction of Ninevah" by Jazet after Martin. This picture will have to be looked at closely to be fully appreciated. But upon close observation it may be seen that the shadings and light effects are mag nificent while every detail is worked out distinctly. One engraving In particular is realistic to a nicety. It is entitled "The Village Politician." It poitrays a young man arguing with an older head, evidently trying to convince the older man of his point. The old man is shown as in a brown study seeming to weigh every ut terance of the young man. A number of others are scattered here and there in the room apparently anxiously awaiting the decision of the sage. Another engraving which comes in for a great deal of attention is the "Last Supper" by Morghen after DeVinei which has a prominent place near the entrance to the rooms. This engraving is copied from one of the twelve most famous paintings the world has known. The original was almost ruined by be ing subjected to rough handling when a band cf Roman soldiers broke into the room where it was hanging. Another beautiful engraving i3 that of "Christ Before Pilate" by Waltner after Munkacsy. This is one of the most val uable etchings in the collection and is really considered a gem in art circles, POLITICAL BREVITIES. Webb McNall addressed an enthusias tic and large crowd at Osage City last night. Governor Stanley spoke at Anthony last night. John Breidenthal is reported to have been given a rousing reception at Wich ita last night. R. B. Welch is traveling this week making speeches with Governor Stanley.

Will Pay Balance of $1,700 Due to Supreme Court Today. As an off-set against the Frank Grimes suit inspired by Democrats in formation has been given out by the lo cal managers of the Republican cam paign to the effect that ex-United States Senator John Martin, Democrat, retired as clerk of the supreme court in favor of Del Valentine is short $4,000 in cash. It was announced that Mr. Martin had paid last December $1,700 of the sum and had paid in February $6C0, making a to tal of $2,300, leaving a balance of $1,700 due. "I was Informed last Friday," said Mr. Martin to a State Journal reporter this afternoon, "that there was still due $1,700. Although this amount by no means agrees with my bank book and my records yet the books in the office of the clerk of the court showing the amount of money received indicate the difference of $4,000, which I have accept ed as correct and am paying. "X have paid $2,300. I will pay the balance, $1,700 probably this afternoon, because I have the money to do so. "Last Friday my attention was called to the balance due'by Mr. Valentine. I told him I would pay it yesterday. Mr. Valentine went to Clay Center and was not at home yesterday when I went to Rossville to keep an engagement which I had there. I just returned from there today and will pay the sum due at the supreme court this afternoon." The fund in which this discrepancy exists is not a part of the money belong ing to the state but represents the mon eys paid in to the clerk of the court of costs or fees belonging to officers of courts and sheriffs in counties where the cases originated. An explanation of this fund is more easily made by reference to the costs taxed in favor of the sheriff, ntil the case is finally decided by the supreme court the sheriff's fees follow and are paid according to the judgment of the court. These payments are usually made into the supreme court where fin al settlement of costs is made, so the clerk of the supreme court becomes a custodian, or an officer holding funds in trust and it is from money so paid to him that Mr. Martin's deficiency oc curred. Mr. Martin's accounts with the state, fees ceJlected on cases in supreme court, were correct when he retired from office. Every cent was accounted for. The clerk was, while Martin was in the of fice, placed on a salary with the require ment by law that all fees collected or. proceedings in the supreme court should be turned into the state treasurer. Mr. Martin bond, in the sum of $10,000 was signed by the late P. G. Noel and P. I Bonebrake, treasurer of the Republi can state committee and president of the Central National bank. MARSHALL'S TONIGHT. Will Make Their Bow in New Uniforms at Auditorium. The energetic work of the committee having in charge the complimentary concert and benefit to Marshall's band in the Auditorium.this evening, deserves success for the event. The sale of tick ets, as far as reports are obtainable, has been gratifying. There was a brisk demand for tickets at the box-office to day, also by those whose engagements can not be laid out far ahead of time. Considering the character of the en tertainment, no attempt has been made to reserve seats. An admission ticket gives the holder privilege to select any seat in the house. The Auditorium has been proven a gem of a hall for the auditor's advantage and every one can seek out a favorite nook, if they choose. People who take an interest in the or ganization, which is Topeka's pride, and has done so much to advertise this city from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast, will be there to see the band arrayed in their striking new uniforms and give their favorites a rousing reception. Topeka's best musical talent gives vol untary assistance.filling in a programme of new and catchy band music with vo cal numbers of much merit. The price of admission has been placed at 25 cents and children's tickets are on sale at 10 cents. Doors open at 7:30 p. m. Electric cars will be in wait ing at Eighth and Quincy, at the close of the concert. Episcopal Missionary Council. Louisville, Oct. 23.

New York, Oct. 23.1 In order to check the upward trend of values, the mom y lenders have begun the old game of jug gling with rates. W hether they will be able to stem the tide of bull sentiment by resorting to this old trick, is very doubtful. Some of the more timid trail ers may take fright at the margin tor call money, but the many intiutntiai oper ators who are working on the bull Mile will not be disturbed. It is a go'.d many months since a 6 per cent rate was quoted fur money in Wall street. Cheap money has held sway so long th3t every little fractional advance In the rate is taken advantage of to raise the cry of "dear money." The supply of funds is rnira than sufficient to meet all requirement s and while this state of affairs exists there need be no apprehension in muney. The market presents a very vigorous appe tr ance. Speculation is broadening aud the feeling is quite general that et .eks h:tve started upon a big advance. Tbe unex pected buyin-r by London and Berlin h s stimulated local bull sentiment and in duced several large traders to buy stocks notwithstanding the fact that they have been operating on the etpposite side' of the market for a long time. The sudden re versal of positions by the foregners is due to the convlctiem which now tbtains abroad, that the present administration will be retaineel in this country. The lead ing financial papeT in Lmdon states that the success of the Kepubliean party wi 1 be followed by liberal investment buying of American seouritis by Kngli'-h capi talists. Two weeks from toelav the v t -rs of this cemntry will decide whether they prefer four years more of prosperity to lour years e.f uncerta nty, perhaps demeir alization. In the? opinion of tiie leading men Ui Wall street nothing can elefeat McKinley. The most reliable newspapers of this city consider him as good as elected. It is the feeling of coniidence in the verdict of the American people that has awakened the speculative and inve-t-ing public from its leing sleep and lifted the stock marke t out of the rut Int i which it has been wobbling for months. What is to be most feared now is too much manipulation and the indiscrimin ate buying of stocks that are already selling above their intrinsic value. Kali roads have not yet had their ndvance. After such a long perioei of Inactivity a rise of 3 to 6 points Is merely a starter. The public won't get thoroughly enthused until prices have risen at least ten points. On every little reaction, therefore, th Grangers should be bought in. This sw 11 is likely to carry Burlington to K:5. St. Paul to 120 and Rock Island to 115. While Atchison preferred can be easily marked up to 80. These prices will surely be reach ed unless the unexpected happen.- the election of Bryan. The Steel stocks have developed considerable buovanev. but the-re is a strong suspicion thi.t it is artl ticial. That the ri:-e in the;se stocks W accompanied by manipulation. Is appar ent to those who have kept cloe watch on the trading. It is believed that they will all sell higher, but there i no tell ing what woment the manipulat' r wl'l unload. If you have a good prolit in any of them, do not hold on too long. All the old rumors that were used two months ago to boom B. It. T. are again P itur service, but the fact that the stock d es not advance as rapidly as formerlv, indi cates that these stories have lost their effect. This stock is of Utile value and will not amount to anything until other Interests acquire control cf the property. Manhattan is selling around '.m wh le l eo pie's Gas is under 1'5. The former pay 4 PT cent, the latter 6 per cent. The read; r can judge for himself which is the for K. N. HUDSON. Today's Topeka Markets . T Topeka, Oct. 23. CATTLE. COWS $3.00-3.15.
