number of votes was a Mr. "West, who

It may be said of all of them that they
are mere guesses. The most elaborate
of the current reviews of the situation is
given by the New Tork Herali. which
concludes that a landslide is forming in
favor of the Republican ticket, giving it
a larger electoral vote than it had in
1SH6 2S.2 for McKinley and 165 for Bry
an, against 271 and ITS respectively four
years ago. This review concedes Ken
tucky to the Democrats, but claims all
of the othei- doubtful states for McKin
ley. Neverthelesa it is admitted that
several cf them are very doubtful, and
rone more so than Illinois, which gave
McKinley nearly 150,000 plurality in 1S'j6.
Kven if the Democratic electors fail
there, it is said that the Democratic
rtate ticket may win. That does not
point to much of a landslide. It is still
a. wavering contest, with an unusually
large silent vote, which will go nobody
can tell how. But the betting and the
juessing are predominantly Republican.

Topeka Police Hare a New Dis
sipation to Contend With.
People Who Use Cocaine as an
Exhilarates at First But Ends
in Collapse.
Stores Do a Big Business in the
A form of dissipation that is growing
in Topeka is the use of cocaine.
It is not generally known, but it Is a
fact that the worst form of drunken
ness that the Topeka police have to con
tend with is the cocaine drunk. In this
city there are more habitual users of
cocaine who are brought before the po
lice judge than there are habitual
whisky drunkards.
The use of cocaine is becoming general
and any druggist will tell you that it is
in constant demand by people who are
continually under its influence. In the
south there are drug stores where one
half of the Income is from the sale of
cocaine. It 13 used by the negroes be
cause they can get on a drunk with
cocaine much cheaper than they can
with whisky and It is more lasting in
its effect.
Cocaine is an alkaloid obtained from
Erythroxylon Coca and is used by the
physicians as a local anesthetic. It has
a soothing effect when taken internally
and makes one feel very benevolent un
less taken in large doses when it has
the same effect as the vilest kind of
whisky. A cocaine fiend is not nervous
as the steady drinker is, but his hands
and arms will jerk and with continued
use of the drug the mind is invariably
ruined and the fiend becomes insane.
It is taken by making a solution of
about one per cent and then snuffing up
the nostril. It is also injected and is
taken with wine. The local Sends gen
erally snuff it up the nostril, but there
have been cases in the jail where the
cocaine fiend used it just as morphine
is used in hypodermic injections.
It will also be news to the public that
there have been cocaine joints in the
city where people addicted to its use
could go and enjoy themselves much as
the Chinese do in an opium joint. Sev
eral of the women who have been under
the charge of Mrs. Thorpe have told her
that there were places where they could
go and enjoy themselves in this manner.
The use of the drug seems to be more
popular with the women than the men,
and it Is well known by the police that
a great majority of the women of the
street use it.
During the past two months two young
men have been sent to the asylum be
cause they had destroyed their minds
by the use of the drug. There is without
doubt one hundred habitual cocaine
users in the city of Topeka and a num
ber of them will soon follow in the foot
steps of the young men.
There is no law against the sale of the
drug and any one who applies at a drug
store can get it. The sale should be re
stricted so that it could be obtained
only on the prescription of a physician.
United States Minister Has Full Au
thority to Open Negotiations.
Washington, Oct. 25. Minister Conger
has been authorized by his government
to begin negotiations at once with the
Chinese envoys on the basis of the
points in the German and French notes
upon which all of the powers are agreed.
Upon these points where divergence of
views has been found to exist, the gov
ernment of the powers themselves will
negotiate with a view to reaching a fur
ther understanding. It is understood
that the ministerial representatives at
Pekin of the other powers have similar
instructions, but whether they have or
not Mr. Conger is not to be restrained.
The Berlin statement this morning
that Germany has agreed to Japan's
proposals that peace negotiations with
China shall for the present be entrusted
to the foreign representatives at Pekin
is regarded here as an indication that
Germany has taken similar action in the
case of Minister Munn von Sehwartzen
stein. Some surprise is expressed here at the
insistence by some of the powers upon a
settlement of the question of the suffi
ciency of c redentials of the Chinese en
voys at this point. It is stated that it
i3 the invariable practice in peace nego
tiations to allow the plenipotentiaries
themselves to pass upon the credentials
of the envoys, which invariably is de
ferred until the first meeting of the plen
ipotentiaries. COLORADO EL YE It.

Greets Col. Bryan on His En
trance Into New Jersey.
Washington Park, N. J., Oct. 25. Mr.
Bryan crossed the Delaware and touched
New Jersey soil at 12:10 today at this
point. He remained In his carriage, but
the people surged about him in vast num.
bers. He shook hands with every one who
could get to him. When the boat touched
the wharf and from there to the speak
ers' stand the ovation was pronounced.
Mr. Bryan spoke in Washington Park. He
said In part:
"I do not know whether I can make my
self heard over this vast audience, but
it is. very gratifying to have an oppor
tunity to meet so many of the people in
such a short time to pass judgment on
the issues before the country. I only re
gret that my time and strength are not
sufficient for me to come into contact
with every voter and defend our cause in
every part of this country. I am confi
dent that we are right and it is my faith
in the ultimate triumph of that which is
right, as well as my observation that
make me believe that we are bound to
win this fight. I can not believe that the
American people. Intelligent and patriotic,
can give their support to the policies for
which the Republican party now stands.
If any Republican asks you why we
spend our time discussing the new ques
tions," you reply that our position on the
old questions is known and our reasons
are known."
Mr. Bryan then devoted himself to an
elaboration of the charges of inconsis
tency on the part of the Republican party.
In the campaign of 1806, he said Mr.
McKinley had as a candidate said that
he would "open the mills instead of the
mints," and the first thing he did, said
Mr. Bryan, "was to place on the statutes
a tariff measure which was intended
to allow the tariff barons to get back the
money which they had expended in the
The question of trusts had especial
attention, and almost every sentiment
was applauded to the echo. Mr. Bryan
"I read the other day of the forma
tion of, a milk trust. Think of it. A
milk trust to meet the infant when he
comes into the world, and when the In
fant grows into manhood the coal trust
looks after him in the winter time and
the ice trust in the summer time, and
the coffin trust waits for him at the
bottom of the hill when life's fitful
dream is over."
Referring to his remedy, requiring a
state license for trusts, Mr. Bryan said
he would shut up a corporation in the
state of its origin until it can show
that it is going into other states on a
peaceful mission and not as a highway
man. Taking up the question of the increase
of the standing army, Mr. Bryan said:
"If the president knew when he en
tered upon his policy it meant a large
army and war and bloodshed, then he
acted deliberately, and the case is worse
than supposed."
In connection he said that tne Kepuo
licana contend that the constitution can
not be stretched outside the United
States, while the president can stretch
himself all over the globe until it gets
to be all president and no constitution."
