EANS &6 tLEIN MICHENEB'S NEW PLAN, ayng Republican Manufacturers Keep Men From Voting in Indiana, Nov. 8. A Corruption Fund of $100,000 Reaohes Indianapolis for That Purpose. By This Means It Is Expected to Prevent Democrats Taking Part In the Eleetlon. INADriAPOLTS, Oct. 16.-A large "boodle" pnoakage was received by the republican state committee last iuunday night, a few meinutes befo a midnight. The package was about eighteen incheslong and seven inches thiok. It is not known whether it came from Washington or fon New York, but it was taken to the Dennison hotel, the re publican committee's headquarters, by a special messenger, within ten minutes after the arrival of the New York train. Chair man Gowdy, C. W. Fairbanks, the million aire candidate for United States senator, and ex-State Attorney General Miohener, Dudley's law partner, are staying at the Dennison. The messenger, who seemed to understand the situation of the room', took the paokage to Fairbank's room. Within two minutes Gowdy and Miohener were in Fairbank's room. Tile mes sanger left then immediately. A stranger went up to Fairbanks' room without in qui iung for it. He carme out at once. As soon as he reached the street another stranger would call and depart immediately, and then another st anger would follow. This was kept up until four o'clock in the morning. In all fifty-seven men called for the "boodle," which was taken out to the counties.' It is generally believed that the package contained $100,000. and it is sup posed that this is the contribution that Fairbanks promised to raise in the east if the republican committee made it possible for him to reach the senate by wiping out the apportionment laws of the state. That a gigantio scheme to corrupt the voters of Indiana is now under way there is no longer any question. It is being engi neered by a man well versed in political trickery in all its forms and phases, and that man is Louis T. Michener, ex-attorney general of this commonwealth. It is not by "blocka-of-lver" methods that Michener will endeavor to throw the electoral vote of this state to liar. ion. One of the best election laws in the union n akes a repeti tion of this piece of scoundrelism an rmpos sibility. To beat this came election law. if possible, however, is Michener's intention. Michbener will buy voters, but the terms of the purchase will provide that instead of voting they shirll remain away from the polls. This is the only way in which the provisions of the election law o:n be suc cessfully violated. The ex-attorney general's plan to pull Inditaa into the republican coUlmnl is a very simple one. It is his intention to make a tour among the co porations of the state, and where the managezrs the eof are favorable to Harrison he will supply the foremen of the estabhlehnent with a sufli cientsum of money to ernable them to pay each employe undle them $10 for working on election day. Of course, in some estab, lishments a few republieans may be found. and they will also have to be paid in order that suspicion may not be aroused. The same scheme will be worked in Illi nois and several other western states, al though more attention will be given to In diana than any other state. ILLOGICAL AND ABSURID. Claims of the Extreme Protectloalsts DIe nollned by tlerchants. New Y'OR, Oct. 10.-The conferencocom mittee made up of representatives of the various Business Men's Cleveland and Stevenson clubs has issued the following address to the voters: We, the undersigned organizations, rep resenting in our membership interests of a varied nature, including farming, manu facturing, transeo ting end merchandising defying any man or body of men to se riously question our patriotism, affliming that we acknowledge no class of citizens as more deeply interested in national proa perity than ourselves, realizing that in creased activity in busneiness on a reasonable and stable bnais is always a public bless ing, unhesitatingly declare the piesent claims of republican lllmangre S, in so far as they relate to business matters, illogical and absurd. We deny that there has been, or is likely to be, as a result of th:: extreme protective policy of the republicain party, any general increase of wages or enhancement of pros pe ity. We stigmatize the principle involved in the McKlnley bhll Ias a long step backward in tne direction of feudalisem, suaversive of individual prog ess, which is the founda tion of the groatrnes. of this rea ublic, and as leading to the creation of a new element in our society of a oluts of citizens pro jected by the gove nment from the opera tiou of nturial laws srainet which thegreat mejority of our citlriue have to colltUend.

We ona-ge further that the allegod solici tutde of the republican parlty for thie work ingmen is insireoore, ned aPpetd falcts aId testimoiy to subet:n utiate our stat mnilltt, and, while insitil ain rxalreiration of them, we urge all citzouns to throw offil the traditional influences of the repubhloean party and unite in the election of Clevo laud arild Htevelscon, thereby demnonstrat ing rto the republocan politicians that the public cannot be fooleld. T'iee address is signed by the representn tires of eighteen clubls composed of mue, cihants, including produce and lshiplpirg men, the dry goods trnade, hide and leathler bhs1iness, crockery and glasswars peoplle, the hardware trade, etc. A statement of fiocts is appentled to the aldrushe.

An xtranut Is also given raonl the ar.lcle written by T. V. I'owderly, general master workman of the Knights of Labor, for the September number of the North Amerioas Review, in which he says: "The workman has not been protected from foreign com petition by the government. He has had to fight the battle for himself through the labor oruganizations. Oar governmnnt has enacted protective legislation in the interest of labor it we read congressional speeches aright, but it quiescently allows the manu facturer to absorb the bulk of protection. If we must have protection let us see to it that it protects the moan who works." A TRICK OF CAILTERt'. Gets the Itepuhllean Text Book Through tihe Malls Cheaply. New YOiK, Oct. 16.-Postmaster General John Wanamaker and Chairman Carter have introduced a regular bargain counter scheme in the United States postal service to save many dollars for the republican national committee. It is just the kind of a product that would be expected from two such "thrifty" fellows at a trade as Wana maker and Carter. 'The fact that by it the partisan use of the postal service is made clear will not disturb either of these wor thbies. By an arrangement between the two, the republican campaign tiet book is being sent through the United States mails with out any interference from Postmaster Van Coot, at the pound rate, as second class matter. The rate of postage to publishers of serial publications is one cent per pound. The rate on t anrsent magazines or periodicals, in which category the text book belongs, is one cent for each four ounces. To ci culato the text books at one quar ter of the expense a compliance with the law would entail, cralty Mr. Carter, with the assistance of the postmaster general, has made the text book a number or issue of an alleged series of publications dubbed "The Voters Library," and is sending this and other malter out as serial publications, although they are in no sense serial publi cations in the meaning of the law. It is a characteristic Carter- Wanamaker trick, a combination of bargain-counter and a "smart" horse trader. Such mean little bits of moves as this are disgusting a whole lot of decent republicans. By the mere christening of all republican campaign documents "The Voters' Library" hundreds of dollars that should have gone to the government will be saved and possibly turned over to "Dave" Martin. The postofice is being made a vast re publican agency. Not only must all the postal employee pay the republioan na tional committee for the privilege of keep ing their linces, but the whole postal ser vice is being used for partisan pulposes. They'll Win Whether They Vote or Not. NEw YORK, Oct. 16.-A man giving the name of Frank Johnson appeared in Little Falls Thursday and began offering bets on the coming election. Johnson was a re publican, and the Clrweland men in town met him half way with alacrity in backing their political opinions. From all over cent al New York come T eports of pleasant mannered strangers whose over tures were met by confident denocrats, all ignorant of the fact that chanter 240 of the laws of 1847 of New Yolk, disqualify from voting pe sons bho bet on elections, or who di rectly or indirectly are interested in such bets. E1rIdorsed tihe Ilemocrats. GRiEAT FALLS, Oct. 16.-[Special.]--The executive committee of the people's party has enursred three candidates on the desu cratic county ticket-Wm. W. Cockiill for district clerk, It. J. Meili for clerk and rec order, and M. Mi. Lyter for county attorney. As these altices had not been filled at the people's pasty convention, and the time for filing nominations is nearly over, It was thought best to endorse the democratic nominees. The Itelort Pronouneed an Error. S'"'. PAUl,, Oct. 16.-The report circulated yesterday that Secretary of State Brown and his deputy had fled to prevent the serving of a mandamus to show cause why they should not print the names of the four people's party electors endor sed by the dtemocrats among the democratic candi dates was an error. The deputy failed to find the secretary at his office, ire being in Minneapolis, but when seen at home to day he said he would appear with his at torneys to-morrow for a hearing.

HIS ADOPIED DAUGHTER, The Woman Who Caused the Down fall of the Ecuadorean Con sul GeneraL He Loft His Family and Lavished Many Thousands Upon the Siren. When the Money Itan Out she and a Con federate Got the Victim to Forge Two $1,000 Notes. NEW YORK., Oct. 1.--Domingo L. Ilniz, consul general of Ecoadok who was ar rested on the charge of forglni the name of GOstav Preston, the Boston merchant and vice conenl, to two notes of $1,(000 each, was brought before the police court to-day. The proceedings disclosed the fact that Ruiz. who is in his dotage, is the vio tim of a band of conspirators who fleeced him out of $30,000, and in greed for more induced him to indorse two $1,000 notes bearing the forged sianature of Preston. The principal in the conspiracy is said to be Mrs. Bertha Laws, his adopted daugh ter. Itniz became acquainted with the Laws women through an advertisement that she answered when he was looking for a housekeeper. She was then known as Miss Bertha Kriandslat. of Stockholm. In the course of a few weeks she per suaded Ruiz that she was his daughter by a former mistress. Raiz finally adopted her as his daughter. This led to an es trangement with his family and he went to live with the Laws woman. Later Bertha introduced Wm. Laws, a bookmaker and general sporting men, to her "father" as her "husband." Ruiz lavished $30,000 on the woman, but she needed more, and act ing under her guidance, Rtui called on Vice-Consul Preston, at Boston. and re quested the loan of $3,000. Preston cheer fully complied and Kuni and his adopted daughter returned to New York, and she proceeded to spend the money, which did not last long, however. The conspirators then concocted a scheme to raise more. Raiz states that in August Mrs. Laws brought to him the two $1,000 fo' ged notes, and said Preston, knowing the consul gen eral was embarrassed, had sent him by mail two notes. Ruiz never suspected them of being forgeries. and at once sined them. A man named Simon Epstein advanced money on one of the notes, and when it was pronounced a forgery, he foreclosed a mortgage, which had been given to protect him, on furniture in Mrs. Laws' house, and had the consul general arrested on the charge of forgery. Owing to the absence of important wit nesses the case was adjourned till Wednes day. and bail was fixed at $2,000. The con sul's'son offered security, but the justice could not receive it. To-morrow, however, the money will be denosited with the city chamberlain, and luiz will be released. A warrant was issued, and Mrs. Laws was ar resto.,to day. A N AN THIE i'EE(']IVERt HILERE. The Charge Made by a Cheyenoe Woman Against an English Itl nhand. NEW YORK, Oct. 16.-Charles A. White, who claims to be the representative of the London Illustrated News, is in police head quarters charged with grand larceny by his wife, who was formerly Mrs. Nagle, daugh ter of a wealthy n.erchant of Cheyenne, Wyo. Acco:ding to White's story of the aflair he met Mrs. Nagle at Hot Springs, Ark., in the summer of 1091, and they be cane interested in each other. He finally made the woman whet he termed a "business propositiron," atnd offered to marry her for $100.000. He went to Europe and during his absence corresponded with Mrs. Nagle, who decided to accept the offer, and so informed White by mail, according to the story. lie returned to America and proceeded to Cheyenne, where they were married. Pre vious to the ceremony an attorney drew up a regular contract in which the bride prom ised to settle upon White the amount he asked for. White esars she paid $25,000 in cash. but still owed ;75,000, which she was unable to raise, and he therefore took the sonorities which caused his arrest. According to Mrs. White's story, the prisoner rbtained secnrities and bonds worth $150,000 from her by means of vio lence and fraud, and also i ractically ab ducred her 16-year-old son. It is said that shortly after the marriael White abused his wife and comloelled her to sign mort gages on various pieces of property, besides lorcing her to endorse a note for .75,000, payable ninety days after date. lie then left his wife, taking with him stocks and bonds belonging to her valued at $40,000, and on his arrival here converted them into cash and kept the proceeds. White also disposed of the mortgages signed by Mrs. White, but an injunction granted in Chey enne prevented the transfers beingoflicially recorded these. Sheriff Kelly, of Cheyenne, who is hero with requisition papers, says as soon as White learned that the o('sCle ne uolies had complained to huperintendent Byrnes about the detention of young Nagle, he promptly pat the boy on a train and sent hlm to Rock Island, Ill, where the boy's g andmother lives. 'Theb case was brought to the attention of Ihe police by a telegramu fromn Cheyenne a•kung for White's arrest and requesting them to secure the boy, Goourgu Nagle.

The Ietter Rhe Writes Ar'epthleg tihe Nom UIntlon at the Handslof the Woman huffragll.s. Nrw Yo.a, Oct. 16.---Mrs. Victoria Claflln Woodhull Martin, candidate of the woman suffragists for president of the United utntes, arrived this morning on the steamer Etruria from her English bome. Her hum band, John BIlrdulph Martin, the London banker and World's fair oimmisnioner from Grent Ii itarm, accompanied the pres idential candidatie. They were driven to the residence of Mrs. Martin's mister, Mrs. Dennis O'llalleran. Being interviewed, Mrs. Meatin said she was eager to step once more upon the platform after alxten year's retirement, and preach the gospel of humanitarianism to every character. To night sie and Air. Martin left for Chicago to attend the World's fair dedication oeremonies. Immediately After these are over arrangements will be completed for campaign speeches, which Mrs Martin will deliver in Boston, New York, l'hiladelphia, Chicago and other large cities. Mis. Martin, before leaving, gave out for publication her letter accepting the nom ination. It is addressed to AnnalM. l'a, ker and others. The letter begins by stating that the nomination upon women suffrage platform commends itself to the writer, especially as the isone is one which was originally raised and advocated by her as long ago as 1870. Mrs. Martin then quotes at length from her addresses delivered during that campaign, in which she argueq that the fourteenth and fifteenth amend, ments to the constitution permitted thq' right of suffrage to women, and she earn-. estly commends all good women to persist ently demand their rights. She next pro ceeds to discuss at some length the method by which the evils affecting society can bg corrected. She sees no salvation except through an almost entire revision of the basic laws of government. Ehe says: "Even the constitution of the United States itself, one of the most modern gov. ernmensal characters of the world is, you may say, a relic nof old institutione." Further onr shbe says: "It is becoming just as neces sary to consider the important subject of breeding intelligence and physical culture in the human race as it is in inferior ani males. In order to accomplish such results new regulations must be proposed for soci ety. We must surround motherhood with the prouer conditions of an enlightened age. It is to women, therefore, that we look for the regeneration of mankind. The injury to wdeaen. through taxation without representation, is only the begin ning of a series of wronus and persecutions to wuich the sex is subjected. I am not an advocate of woman's rights in the sense of unsexing woman. Woman's vote is the only great weapon of reform. It would settle the liquor question and with woman in polities and saloons out of poli tics what may we not hope for. But I will not dilate tu ther; simply presenting a list of sorme of the proposed reforms under consideration in the humanitarian platform: reuenue and tariff retorm; tri bunals of healtu; free courts of justice for the poor; bureaus of a.nthropology con nected with every police station; labarato ries for the analysis of imlpu.e food and liquids; woman suffrage; a scientifio re organization of the cri mnil code; improved dwollingK for the pror: labot tribunals for arbitration; the arietoorar y of blood."
