THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAE THURSDAY EVENING MARCH 6, 1913.
IN SENATF'MILL," Boll Moosers Gain Recognition From Upper House. tt t,i . .. .,..' Kinkel's Primary Amendment , Recelres No Opposition. RELATIVES CAN HOLD OFFICE. JVagener "Blood and Mar riage" Measure Killed. Sidelights . on ..Personalities of Members of the Senate. .The Bull' Moosers have been recog nized In Kansas at last. Their efforts of the last few months have rot been fruitless, because the state senate, com posed of rock ribbed Republicans and Democrats has voted to allow the Pro gressive ticket on the ballots without further trouble Jid legal complication. The measure introduced early in the cession by Senator Kinkel, of Morris county, the chief Mooser of the legls latureproviding for all the necessities of entering the sacred Kansas I -llot, has been favored wtihout concentrated opposition. Under the primary law now fn ef fect the Progressive party could not get its ticket on the ballot In the last lection and primary because it was i..,i i-n k. .v. mary. The Kinkel bill does away with the formal preparations and legal pro cedure. The Kinkel measure provides that a new party either organized or in the molds of organization can place Its candidates on the ticket by ob taining the signatures of two per cent of the voters of ten counties on the l.asls of the vote for the secretary of state at the last election. One requirement of the Kinkel bill Is that the new party must put up candidates for a majority of the offices Included in the election. A party ticket must enroll candidates for a good part of the state offices. Senator Kinkel is a satisfied legisla tor now that his Bull Moose bill has passed the senate. Despite the over whelming majority of good old fash ioned hard shelled Republicans and Democrats who harbor fear in their Tiearts for the coming new party in Kansas, the senate was in sympathy with the polite request of the senator from Morris county and they recog nized his party, fairly and squarely. The Progressives will have no com plaint to make of the manner they have been treated vby the Kansas Benate of the 1913 vintage. The Carney bill calling for the reor ganization of the normal training work" in the high schools of the state was passed late last night by the senate. Incidentally Senator Carney revealed to the members of the senate some of the practices of the state in the Inspection of high schools and the amount of mon ey wasted annually in what was termed a useless procedure.

The members also objected to the probable construction of the "In direct relationship." fearing that It might cause endless turmoil in public appointments. The Malone bill providing for the selection of official county papers by popular election was aeteatea in ni- teen seC0nds by the senate last night. popular election was defeated In fit- Senator Shouso moved that, the en acting clause be stricken out and the motion was carried. Malone looked on and laughed. Admonished by Carney of Cloud county to go home and preach the doc- trines of purity and anti-pool halls; and refrain from bringing their local troubles to the senate chamber, the members of the upper house last night killed the Davis pool hall regulation bill by a vote of 19 to 16. Not i til the body had spent two valuable hours of quickly diminishing legislative time, however, was the measure killed. The bill provided for a petition of half the residents of a ward and a li cense of $500 before a pool hall could be opened. The Troutman county jail matron bill has been approved by the senate and undoubtedly vwill be enacted Into law. . Senatorial Sidelights. Wyandotte county is running a close second to Shawnee in the race for the worst hated county in Kansas. Prac "cally all of Senator Milton's bills of local nature i have been torn Into shreds by the senate with very little other reason than that they come from Wyandotte and Kansas City. The con centrated objection against Wyandotte measures has made this an unprofit able session for Senator Milton, Senator Trott of Geary county, a here the senate, presided over the commit- j a-va. U'Vk suiu . wi w r top lilv a wa tee of the whole last night and han dled the final night session on consid eration of senate bills like a veteran. He 1 ept order with an iron hand and recognized speakers without fear or favor. The upper house is expecting much from Loring Trott next year, v . . In the last seven days Senator Nighswonger of Sedgwick has devel oped into one of the most satirical and convincing fighters of the body of . forty. . No one realized what was , penned up in his pensive and medita tive nature until a few days ago when he was aroused on a few Wyandotte bills then his flood gates of stinging rebuke, were opened and since then he has been a leading fighter of the sen ate. . . . Ben S. Paulen of Wil son county, the senator with dreamy eyes, is a standpat Republican, mayor of Fredonia, and a merchant whose statesmanship honors were thrust upon him. He has curbed his oratori cal emergencies this season. "I am just a new green member," he ex plains. But he has forwarded many ideas that have been considered seri ously and thoughtfully by the upper house. END GAME SWIFTLY. c. r. Kerr, Hock Island Trainmaster, Died of Indigestion. C. I. Kerr, trainmaster of the Rock Island In Herrington, died of acute indigestion at the Rock Island f ore h,s death and ate dinner with A. Ramsdell in the hitter's private . car. Messrs Kerr and Kamsdell were talking official business in the car ( when Mr. Kerr was stricken. Mr. Ramsdell asked William Courtrite the station master to call a physician !

Cain who was then general manager with headquarters in To- manager wun neaaquaners in j.o- peka. He held this position until m 1906. when n was appointed train- master of the Kansas division. He Is survived by his wife and two children. S" i3 StST d several years, He was a member the various Masonic organizations. The body was taken to Penwell's undertaking rooms last night and will be shipped to' Herrington today for Interment. CONGRESS IS OPENED. Subjects of Interest to Farmers Up in St. Joseph. St. Joseph, Mo., March 6. The first an nual interstate agricultural and indus trial congress opened a three-day Besslon here today with many prominent agri culturists and ecientifc men in attend ance. Dr. A. Ross Hill, president of the Uni versity of Missouri, and president of uie congress, made the opening address. Four states are represented on today's Dro- gram and in addition to the agricultural J Fe. Iron Mountain and Burlington rail roads, the federal department of agri culture Is represented by three experLs. Governor Morehead of Nebraska is vice president of the congress and high of ficials of several railroads will deliver ad dresses. All features of farming, fruit growing, stock raising and dairying are to be treat ed in the addresses. Many of tiiern will be Illustrated. Several noted women speakers are to discuss Improved meth ods for the housewife and the farmer. Mrs. Cora Wellhouse Buliard, of Tonga noxle, Kan., was the first woman speaker. WOULD CHANGE SYSTEM Plan Advanced to Hold Klections on Fourth of July. Chicago, March 6. A plan to make the Fourth of July an election day for the entire nation and Memorial day a countrywide primary day, was pro posed Dy Samuel Aiscnuier, a lorraer Democratic nominee for governor of Illinois yesterday, in an address before the Association of Commerce. "We must do something to stir up the voters of this nation," Mr. Ai scnuier said. "They must be aroused to a sense of their duties. At some judicial elections, hardly any one turns out. Too little interest is taken In elections and primaries. "We should have our primaries on Decoration day and election day on the Fourth of July real holidays, not merely days when the saloons, banks and public offices are closed. We have separate ballots for the judiciary, the state, the nation and the city. Let us devote as much of those days as possible to voting. No holiday would be more patriotically or more ad vantageously spent." CONTINUE WORK'. Recommend&tion Made Chairman McComhs. Democratic Committee Should Keep Active. "Washington, March e. The cratic national committee, in Demo session here yesterday, took cognizance of the senatorial deadlock in Illinois and New Hampshire and adopted a resolu tion expressing the hope that Demo crats be elected to the senate to fill the vacancies In those states. The resolution, - introduced by Clark Howell, of Georgia, directed Chairman McCombs to take such action as he deems necessary to assure the election of two Democratic senators in Illinois and one Democrat In New Hampshire. In Illinois James Hamilton Lewis and Charles Boeschenstein, the national committeemen, are the Democratic candidates. In New Hampshire Henry P. Hollis has come within a few votes of election, though several Democrats refrained from voting for him. Despite the fact that Mr. McCombs has been offered the ambassadorship to France and the belief of his friends t. has not yet "e- " a?' J? haa., ?f iT linquished the chairmanship of the na tional committee and in his address he gave Indications that he expected to direct the work of party organiza tion for some time. In response to a resolution of thanks for his work In the last campaign, Mr. Mccomps declared he believed In a broader scope of activities for the na tlonal committee and that It would be a delight to him to carry on the work as far as he could. "I don't believe," said Mr. McCombs, "after an election or an attempted election of president a committee should be dormant until a few months before another election. I believe we should be In thorough co-operation all of the time. I don't myself know how to get along wltnout organization, My mind runs in those channels. With reference to the organization which we now have, I think we have the best fighting body of Democrats in this country. If It had not been you would not be here. Organization Necessary. ' "I believe that In order to assure a continuation of what w have accom plished we have got to be an organized army and unless we do organize as an, army we are going to meet an or ganized army on the other side and there may be danger. "Two years from now when we are going to meet strong opposition, we can maintain ourselves In congress and can organize ourselves for the grc it battle four years from now." The committee elected Homer S. Cummings, of Connecticut, as vice chairman, Rolla Wells, of Missouri, treasurer and voted to establish head quarters in Washington to be in charge of Thomas J. Pence. During the session the committee was addressed by Miss Mary B. Foy, of Los Angeles, president of the Cali fornia Women s Democratic league, who declared that the Democratic women of California had much to do in splitting the electoral vote in that state in the last election. Last night the members of the committm were rn- ceived in the east room of the White House by President Wilson. .The'e the president was presented by National committeeman Moore, of Ohio, with a large rolled silver sheet, bearing the engraved names of 100 Ohio Democrats, nnrtrn.itn nf the nrogir?rt an t7i, president and a picture of the a picture of the Ohio state house. It is said to be the largest piece of sheet silver ever rolled. Before visiting the White House, the committee witnessed the swearing in of Josephus Daniels, one of its members, as secretary of the navy and visited Secretary of State Bryan, Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo and Secretary of War Garrison. The committee ad journed subject to call of the chairman. A GLEAN SLATE. (Continued from Page One.) times the present issue and to issue preferrei stock. The bills aroused stubborn opposition in the' house, but were crowded into the bulk roll calls in the final rush to complete consider ation of original measures. The house has passed a brand new garnishment bill, introduced by Mike Frey of Geary. On the passage of the former bill Governor Hodges refused to sign the measure and declared that it was unfair and unjust and diS not afford proper protection for the la borer In view of the present high cost of living. When the bill was sent back to the legislature with the recommendation that it be repaired, a new bill was in troduced which is expected to meet the aproval of the administration. Freys new bill provides for a 10 per cent, a month garnishment instead of 25 per cent, as was provided for in the old bill. It also provides that be fore a garnishment order can be is sued, that the creditors must secure judgment in some court of equity and that tho debtor must secure judgment in some court of equity and that the dbtor be given a day in court. J. JC. Herr as chairman of the house ways and means committee, to day introduced the appropriation bills for the soldiers' home at Fort Dodge and for the Mother Bickerdyke home at Ellsworth. The appropriations for these two institutions for the years 1914-15 aggregate $277,060. For the soldiers' home, the ways and means committee recommends appropriations aggregating $241,300. To the Mother Bickedyke home, the committee would make appropriations in the amount of $35,700 tor the two years. The bills, which were advanced to third reading will be considered the latter part of the week. It is probable that the educational appropriation bills, introduced in the senate several days ago, will be con sidered in the house either Saturday or Monday. These measures will be among the last bills to receive the con sideration of the legislative members and it is generally believed that the ap propriations will be allowed in prac tically the same amounts as recom mended by the ways and means com mittees of the two houses. House members believe that they will be able to dispose of the bills from the senate in ample time to allow them to adjourn next Tuesday without per mitting any measures to die on the cal endar. In the last two weeks the house has been going at a -record pace anI has put through scores of measures. , This afternoon the bouse started on the first bunch of senate bills and will stay on the Job -until the task is com pleted. . The 1913 body has established a record by cleaning up its own bills promptly -on time and will now try to dispose of the senate calendar in order that It may adjourn at the hour set by the provisions of the resolution adopted several days ago by both branches of the legislature. APPROPRIATIONS. (Continued from Page One. members. No such law has ever been enacted by any of the adjoining states and it is claimed that the passage of the bill will be a direct slap at the schools of other states and probably result in the enactment of a law which will compel Kansas students in Mis souri. Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin and other state schools to pay a tuition for their education. On the face of the bill, Tannahill's measure looks perfectly harmless and inoffensive. But it is loaded with poison for the college men and women and some of the college members of the legislature jumped on the bill with both feet, Schlicher, of Saerldan coun ty, led a fight to kill the measure, but the farmer members of the house thought the measure would be a grand good thing and voted for lta adoption. An effort will now be made to defeat the bill when it is considered in the senate the latter part of the week. Under the Tannahill bill, a student in any Kansas educational Institution who is a nonresident of the state would be compelled to pay the actual cost of his education in that school. In comparison with such a law, is the broad policy of free education extend ed by other state schools. Adjoining states admit Kansas students to their schools without pay. The students pay their board in the town in which the school Is located, buy their clothing and spend more or less incidental money and ultimately become boost- J ers for both the state and school In I which they received their education. sui xannaniu proposes to put me eu ucational advancement in Kansas' on a cold blooded business basis and to close the doors to students from other states. And in his effort he has been assisted by a majority of the house members. George G. Bunger, of Kskridge, was elected by members of the house of representatives as a member of the Memorial hall building commission to succeed J. W. Burke of Salina. Bunger, who is a Democrat, and member of the house from Wabaunsee county, was elected by acclamation. He will serve as a member of the building commis sion until the new half-million dollar structure is completed. In 1910 Bunger attained his first recognition in state wide politics when he was elected to the legislature In a campaign in which he defeated Bank Commissioner J. N. Dolley, who was at that time a can didate for the office and the nominee of the Republican party. ASKS FOR UNITY. (Continued from Page One. coin Dixon, Indiana; Cordell Hull, Tennessee; W. S.

The Democratic members of the ways and means committee will com mence the final committee revision of the tariff next Friday, taking up the work where the Democrats constitut ing the majority of the committee in the last session of congress left it as a "tentative basis." There will be a tariff caucus when the extra session convenes, to pass upon the report. Party Program Outlined. Speaker Clark's speech in acknowl edgment of his renomination dealt with the party's program and future. He urged the carrying out of the party promises and said the only way to achieve this was for every Democrat In official position to "give the best there is in him and subordinate indi vidual ambition to the public weal." "It is a thing incredible,' he de clared, "that any man fit for official station would let his personal likes or dislikes interfere with his co-operating with any other Democrat In unifying the party in its herculean and multi farious tasks to redeem our pledges." This utterance was cheered. "The suggestion of any such a state of affairs comes from faint-hearted Democrats, who are forever seeing ghosts," the speaker continued, "or from malignant marplots, who, though masquerading as Democrats, are not Democrats at all but wolves in sheep's clothing. Certain of these venomous eleventh-hour Democrats are loud mouthed in proclaiming trouble where none exists and in laying down a rule of conduct for real Democrats. "Genuine Democrats, who have the good of the party and the country at heart, would do well to give no heed to these self-styled Democrats, whose chief business is to stir up strife by foully slandering any Democrat who has earned their enmity by being a Democrat at all times, under all cir cumstances and at all places." The speaker said the house Demo crats had been together since March 19, 1910, "when for the first time in seventeen years the Democrats in the house electrified the country by voting together not a man missing in a great struggle." "I predict," he concluded, "that they will in the Sixty-t lird congress act in unison, not only with themselves, but with President Wilson." WOULD HELP TURNER. Kansas City, March 6. Three hundred men and women met here last night to protest against the imprisonment In the City of Mexico of John Kenneth Turner, the magazine writer. The following tele gram was sent to William Jennings Bryan, the new secretary of state: "We. several hundred working people 01 Kansas City, Mo., In a meeting beid to protest against the imprisonment of John Kenneth Turner ia the City of Mexico, atk you to use your authority in procur ing his release and saving his life. Please eend answer." PLAY III WHITE HOUSE. Childish Prattle and laughter Are Heard. Washington, March 6. For the first time in years childish prattle and laughter are heard in the White House: The baby daughter of Mrs. Perin Cothran, the president's niece, and the little daughter of Mrs. J. Wilson Howe, another niece of the president, have taken possession of the long terrace opening off the east room. The Cothran baby still is in the per ambulator stage. She already has taken a strong liking for the great guttering chandelier in the east room. with its thousands of crystal pendents. As a result, the youngest of the presi dent's relatives is satisfied only with a position In the center of the nation s greatest state chamber, where Bhe may lie on her back and- feast her baby eyes on the sparkling wonder above her. WILL ISSUE EDICT. League President Johnson Disfavors Player-Scribes. Chicago, March 6. President B. B. Johnson of the American League is said to have a bomb ready for hurling into the ranks of ballplayer-scribes in his organization. It was learned here last night that the league's ex ecutive was about to issue an edict which would either stop ball players from writing expert opinion for news- , papers, or stop their salaries. i "It is not the intention to Infringe on the rights of the players," Johnson said, "but alleged expert criticism and baseball playing do not mix. I would not mind so much if the players them selves wrote the stuff which appears in the papers throughout the land, but j in a great majority of cases the play- ers never see the stories to which their ! names are appended until after they nave Deen printed. ACCEPT NEW JOBS. Former Government Officials Go to Express Companies. Washington, March 6. Charles G. Thompson, chief clerk of the postoffice department, who did much of the execu tive work of organizing the parcel post, resigned today to become general purchas ing agent of the United States Express company. Charles A. Lutz, chief exam iner of carriers accounts for Interstate commerce commission, resigned to become comptroller of the same company. Their employment Is part of a plan, it was said, for a general reorganization of the ex ecutive staff of the express company. Other companies are said to be planning similar changes to meet the new require ments which will be imposed as a result, of the interstate commerce commission's recent investigation of their rates and practices. TODAY'S MARKET REPORT. Chicago, March 8.-WHEAT Bearish re ports on farm reserves in the Dakotas and Minnesota help turn the wheat mar ket downward today after an early ad vance. The strength at the outset was due to reports that a large percentage of the crop in Germany had been found to be fit only for pig food. Opening prices varied from a shade off to Ma up. May started at 91c to 91(lc. rose to 91(e 91'c, and then fell to 9091c. Later the market rallied owing to ex port sales here and because Minneapolis receipts were said to be running poor in quality. The close was steady with May 'A(WC net hiKher at 9U4-C. CORN Corn although firm at first be- .came weak when wheat took the down grade. May opened a sixteenth to Ho higher at 62Tc to 52'S63c, touched 63c, and descended to v&VHvz?bC, Prices afterward hardened again with wheat. The close however was easy at 52i(&62T4c for May, the same as last night. OATS Steadiness prevailed in oats not withstanding repression or otner grain.

STOCKS The stock market continued today on its uncertain course of the week, which has been marked by alternating periods of strength and weakness. following yesterday's advance, traders sold stocks today and prices were depres sed 1 to 2 points in some instances, with larger losses for a number or specialties. Bear operators sought to make capital out of the poor showing of the Bank of Jineland in its weekly statement which emphasized unfavorable monetary condi tions abroad. Little attention was paid to the satisfactory earnings published by a number of middle western railroads or to the evidences of prosperous conditions in the Seteel industry. Sentiment was bearish, although trading was con tinea almost entirely to the professional ele ment. Bonds were easy. Opening changes ia stocks today were about evenly divided between small frac tional gains and losses. Trading was dull The only variations of more than a frac tion were in Snuff, which declined 1 and Canadian Pacific, which lost a point. General heaviness resuitea wnen n ef fort was made to sell stocks around ttie onening figures. Can was lowered 2 points and some of the other leading Issues half as much. Xew York Sugar Market.
