ROOSEVELT VEXED Picture on Campaign Button With Taft Riles Him. There Will Be !No Loye Feast at Union League Dinner. New York. Sept. SO. Colonel Roose velt has mad vehement written pro test to Willii. Villcox, of the Repub lican national nmittee against: First The circulation of his por trait along with those of Charles r Huehes and William H. Taft on a campaign button. Second Advertising; the Union League club reception to Mr. Hughes next Tuesday as one arranged for a reconciliation between Roosevelt and Taft. Upon receipt of the messrge. Chair man Willcox disclaimed all responsi bility for the Hughes-Taft-Roosevelt button, or the Taft-Roosevelt "kiss and make up" program. The chairman was so disturbed that he privately threatened to have the Union League reception called off rather than have trouble. The colonel came to town prepara tory to starting for Battle Creek, Mich., where he is to deliver his "skin 'em alive" speech for Hughes. To Be No "Making Up." While awaiting a visit from Chair man Willcox to arrange about his far western itinerary a visit which did not materialize the colonel was shown a button bearing the likeness of Hughes, flanked by others of Taft and himself. He was also reminded that Elihu Root, as president of the Union League cluh, and National Chairman Willcox were planning to have him and Mr. Taft forget their four-year feud and swear eternal political and personal allegiance in the presence of cheering Republicans. The colonel waxed wroth. He paced the floor of the clubhouse reception room and demanded of newspaper men who were responsible for the but ton and for the Taft-Roosevelt recon ciliation twist to the forthcoming re ception. Some observed that perhaps National Chairman Willcox could fur nish the information. "Come here, quick," rpared the col onel to his stenographer. "Take this," he continued, as he continued a I sizzling letter to Willcox. I It is understood the colonel wrote j substantially that he must insist upon I the recall of the campaign buttons and a public repudiation of the an nouncement that he is to attend the) Hughes reception chiefly to "shake hands" with Taft. Makes Himself Understood. The colonel, while renewing his promise to Chairman Willcox and Elihu Root that he will participate in the reception, emphasized his view that he would go there merely out of compliment to Mr. Hughes as the Re publican candidate for president. He did not purpose to have this proposi tion befogged by reports that he was to be dragooned into falling into the arms of former President Taft or Wil liam Barnes, jr., or any other man with whom he has quarreled. The colonel insisted that Chairman Willrox reveal who ordered the Hughes-Taft-Roosevelt campaign me dallion and who had the audacity to announce that he was a party to a public reconciliation with Taft. When the message was taken to 5Ir. Willcox, the chairman apparently had been tipped that it was on its way. As the stenographer appeared at the door of Willcox's private room at na tional headquarters, the chairman greeted him with: "If you have come to talk with me about the campaign button, tell the colonel that I know nothing about it. Tell him further that I am in no way responsible for the published accounts that he is to become reconciled to Mr. Taft. Tell him further that I would prefer to have the reception called off rather than have any trouble." BIG FLOUR ORDER HERE Los Angeles Man May Buy 14,000 Bar rels in Topeka.

For Nervous Indigestion TAKE HORSPORD'S ACID PHOS PHATE relieves the distressed stom ach, restores appetite and strength. Adv. Dodge City, Kan.. Sept. SO. Kansas folks who have been dry for thirty four years were urged today by the prohibition campaigners to bleed a lit tle if necessary for national prohibi tion. The danger of complacency over the state's condition is to be avoided, they declared. "The state that has been one of the pioneers for state-wide prohibition should be in the thick of the fight for a dry nation," Ira Landrith, the vice presidential candidate, said. "Do not be complacent about a sinking ship just because you do not own it. As a matter of fact, you do own a part of the national ship and we are all aboard it." J. Prank Hanly urged that liquor had made cowards of Hughes, Wilson and other public men. He also sharp ly criticised Vice President Marshall, who as governor of Indiana, caused Hanly's local option law to be re pealed. "The present vice president," Hanly said, "has been doing nore business on less intellectual i .ital than any other vice president in our political history. "If I were he I should be afraid to cross the bar for fear of meeting the souls of the men and women I had wronged by restoring two thousand saloons to Indiana." Pair for Prohibition. Kansans also were pressed to line up in the "pair for prohibition" ranks that the drys are organizing. Oliver W. Stewart, the campaign manager, declared that since the trip started thousands of Democrats and Republi cans had agreed with one another to vote the Prohibition ticket by this car in order to elect the ticket. By both voiting the Prohiibtion ticket, he explained, they would offset each oth er's vote in the big parties. Good crowds greeted the campaign ers here and at Garden City and Cimarron. Other cities to be visited were: Kinsley, Larned, Great Bend, Sterling, Hutchinson and Wichita. H. E. Kerschner, the dry candidate for congress in the Seventh district, joined the train at Garden City. Cim arron citizens were the first of all visited in three weeks to break away from etaid applause and yell "Rah, rah, rah, Hanly," in approved intercol legiate style.

"Nothing to Wear, Is the Ex cuse of Parents. There are fifty children in Topeka that have not been to school this year, altho it is two weeks since the opening of the fall term. The cause thereof is "lack of clothes." For two weeks the Provident asso ciation has been besieged with re quests for children's clothes. The sup ply was early exhausted and altho the matron- has performed miracles in "cutting down the supply of adult clothing- on hand it approaches the impossible when it comes to altering the trousers originally worn by a six foot man to make a pair for a fourteen-year-old school boy. "I can't send them to school. They haven't any clothes to wear," is the excuse offered by a dozen mothers and accepted by truancy officer, F. F. Dawdy, because usually the supporting evidence was right before his eyes; children clad so scantily that the gen tlest autumn zephyr would have evok ed a shiver. He has referred most of his cases to the Provident association but the supply of children's second-hand clothes is completely exhausted there and the proposition of buying new clothes for fifty youngsters ranging in age from 6 to 16 was beyond its financial boundaries. Meanwhile Mrs. Myrtle Callahan, assistant secretary at the association, has been 'phoning to every likely place where suits and dresses and shoes for little boys and girls might be found. One mother with a brood of seven children, all of whom should be in school, and a husband in the state hospital, is one of the cases worry ing the Provident association. In an other family, which is asking for school clothes, the mother, who is lame, is the sole support for six young children. She has just recovered from typhoid and is at present almost in capable of earning a living for herself. But the truancy officer has notified her that her children must be sent to school. If she can obtain clothes for them, she will try to keep them in school, with help from the Provident association. The Provident association asks that every one with children's old clothes notify them, and an effort will be made to call for them before Monday morning so that half a hundred To peka children may start to school the first day of the school week.

DROWNEDJN A WELL Believe Grief Drove Arkansas Farmer to End His Life. Ozark. Ark., Sept. 30. With a weight fastened to his body, Wm. Smith, a wealthy farmer, living near here, committed suicide by drowning himself in a well on his farm. His act is thought to have been caused by grief over the recent death of his wife and thep resent danger ous illness of his 5-year-old son. When H. B. Moore, a Kansas City- an, stood before the door for in-com ing passengers in the Kansas City Union station Friday night he expect ed his wife to Issue therefrom, throw her arms around him and plant a glad-to-get-home kiss on his cheek. Mrs. Moore was supposed to be re turning from a visit to relatives in Clinton, Mo. But she didn't come thru the door. Instead, according to word received in the sheriffs office, there came a muscular Kansas City policeman. The cop eyed the crowd for a minute and then walked up to Moore and tapped him on the shoulder. We want you," he said, "for the Topeka sheriff." "Hun," said Moore. 'Straight goods," said the cop. Moore has a charge, launched Fri day, against him in Topeka of stealing two diamond earings and a seal skin coat from his sister-in-law, Maud Haz let, here.

Kiene, sheriff, received a telegram from Kansas City that Moore was under arrest. Kiene left at 7 o'clock to get the prisoner. AT THE THEai ERS The Orpheum. The Oroheum management has news of special importance relative to the next big feature which will be form ally announced in a few days. In the meantime "The Thoroughbred" will end a three days' engagement and "The Social Secretary" with Norma Talmadge as the star will be pre sented. The bill for the latter part of next week will be "The Bugle Call" with Willie Collier, jr., as the principal player. In the play wheih comes to the Ornheum Monday. "The Social Sec retary." a new face is seen in Triangle productions when Gladden James ac cepts the part opposite Norma Tal madge. At Orpheum, K. "., Week Oct. 1. One of the most pretentious bills of the eeason will be offered at the Orpheum for the week commencing October 1. Of the seven acts picked for Stock Show week no less than four are of headline caliber. Anna Wheaton and Harry Carroll are one of the newest vaudeville combina tions and they have achieved a decid ed success in their present offering. A list of the plays in which Miss Wheaton scored includes many of the biggest contemporar successes, hav ing been in the support of De Wolf Hopper, Sam Bernard and in many other musical comedies. Mr. Car roll is probably the youngest com poser contributing his wares to the stage. He collaborated in composing the music for "The passing Show of 1914" and has written many of the latest popular songs, including "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine," "There's a Girl in the Heart of Maryland," "By the Sea" and many others. John B. Hymer has written many vaudeville playlets, but none has been so universally successful as his latest offering, "Petticoats." in which Grace Dunbar Nile U featured. The story is of youth as youth really is and is something new in the way of a plot. The scene is unconventional, but is as funny as it is bold, and as a whole the contribution to vaudeville is one of the most thoroughly delight ful sketches that the Orpheum has presented in some time. Leah M. Herz is another newcomer to vaudeville, having deserted the so cial life of Augusta, Ga., for the foot lights. Her vaudeville offering is ex tremely odd and is entitled, "I Wish I Knew," written by Miss bada uowan. The piece is far and away from the beaten path of vaudeville playlets and gives Mrs. Herz an opportunity to dis play her rare qualifications. She acts, dances, wears a number of fashionable gowns and in general proves she pos sesses an unusual amount of talent. One of the most beautiful and thrill ing of diving acts is offered by the Six Water Lilies, a sextette of six young girls beautiful of face and figure and unusually accomplished in diving and swimming. The act was one of the features of the New York Hippro drome and this fact is the best tribute to its quality. The girls are undoubt edly the finest collection of aquatic experts ever seen in Kansas City, each one having gained international repu tation by her swimming feats. Other acts on the bill include: The eminent Italian pianist, G. Adlo Randegger, who has been featured on the leading concert tours of America and Europe, in an International re pertoire. Mary Melville, formerly of the well known team of Melville & Hlggins, in a humorous and novel monologue. The Gomez trio, exponents of the peasant dances of Spain, and the Orpheum Travel Weekly, with views of picturesque Caucasia and scenes among the Eskimos of Siberia.
