THE WOMEN QUIZ
Ask City Candidates Leading
And That Has to Do With
Conditions in Topeka were pictured
M being in a deplorable state by cer
tain candidates on the outside looking
In for office who were "quizzed" by
sixty or seventy members of the Good
Government club at the Y. W. C. A.
building late Thursday afternoon.
Particularly emphatic in this direc
tion were the statements of three of
the men who are fighting for the of
fice of mayor.
R. Lm. Cofran: "The present admin
tration while honest has gone wrong.
The prohibitory law is ignored. If the
people of Topeka could see conditions
In the bottoms they would see that the
law is not enforced. I believe I could
enforce the law."
E. L. O'Neil: "If I am elected
mayor there will be no fake enforce
ment of the law. One of my first of
ficial acts will be to appoint a new
chief of police and a new police ma
tron. I am not making an attack on
the present office holders. I will re
organize the police force so that it
will be a source of pride to the people
of Topeka. and a good advertisement
for the city."
Colonel J. v P. Hughes: "The
first thing that I shall do when I am
mayor will be to clean out the police
department and I'll be there, too.
Two-thirds of them should go. I'll
go out with the police and If they
don't do their duty I'll be hunting for
George Adamson, running for com
missioner of streets and public im
provements: "I have lived In Topeka
for 25 years and I want to say I have
never seen the streets Jn worse condi
tion than thev are at the present time.
I have wondered for years why there ;
Is not a greater death rate in Topeka '
than there is. In a prohibitory way'
I have never seen things so badly)
lived up to."
There were three questions that i
were hurled at the candidates by the
women. They were:
"How do you stand on the prohibi

pool halls and the strict enrorcemeni. (
of the anticigarette law?"
"Did you vote for woman's suf-1
All candidates said they stood for the (
enforcement of the prohibitory
and all other laws. However
when H. P. Miller was pinned j
down to state whether or not
he personally favored prohibition he
said he would lie for no office: he was !
not a prohibitionist in principle but in j
favor of honest enforcement of the law. j
One of the women present explained j
that he was a true German and had j
his peculiar ideas concerning such
E B. Stotts was placed in the thick I
of an argument. Mrs. H. M. White j
asked how the city commissioners could j
assist in the enforcement of the pro
"I don't know how tl.ey could," was l
the reply. "The matter rests with the ,
ma vor. the county attorney, and the ;
sheriff. You will have to go to them."
Mrs. White continued:
"I have In my hands a list of eleven
addresses of places right here in To
reka that have United States liquor
licenses, and these places are running
now. If these men cannot enforce the
law we want men who can."
Mr Stotts pointed to his past record,
and stated that he is now more capable
than ever to handle the affairs of his
But the ladies did not make clear
just how or why a commissioner of
parks had anything at all to do with
the prohibitory law, nor why he was
quizzed on the one subject, while
nothing at all was asked about fitness
or capacity or record as a park com
missioner. All candidates insisted that they had
been arduous workers for suffrage for

missioner of water and lights, said that
he would make an effort to abolish all

ditions of membership. ; It is NOT an installment plan as; in
stallment plans are known, for only worthy persons will be ad
mitted to membership, and members are not taxed exorbitant
prices to cover the losses occasioned by selling indiscriminate
ly. You buy at exactly the same prices as if you . paid cash

featues ,no publicity, no harsh treatment. Every courtesy
that is extended to our regular charge customers will be ex
