W. D. Tincent Asks For a Series
of Joint Debates.
Challenge Ignored by the Re
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.
"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
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
TR0OMAN OX BETTING.
Admits That the Republican Have
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
"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."
Rock Island Builds Standpipe and
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

for the railroad and mercantile enter
prises is making big increasesi right

MANY FINE PICTURES.
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
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,

Her condition, according to the Herald,

recovery. Mrs. Brice passed the latter
part of the summer in Adirondack's. At

Republicans Discover Discrep
ancy in His Accounts.
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
"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.
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.

New York Up-Town Gossip.

Company, members Chicago loard of
Trade, Tupeka, Kansas.
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
