STILL DEFIED !
THE CITY ADMINISTRA
TION REFUSE TO
MOVE.
Their Organ Insults Men who
Would Protect their Homes
and Families
By Appealing to Party Prejudice
and by Charging Occult
Motives.
Tlio appeal of the citizens committee to
the mayor and council to clc.tr the city of
the I ms-roii and unlawful cVment which
is nightly robbing our people goes un
heeded, and the sentiment which called the
meeting ol citizens forth is defied. The fact
that the movement :i solely in the inlerct-t
of good go eminent and mutual safety,
added to the f.ict that still aguin night be
fore Iiibt the robberies went on a umhI, and
all reinforced by the plain and undeniable
iniths et forth in the Kaoi.k jeknlay
morning, it was hoped that some
thing would be done jcpterday.
Kut there was not. The maj or in the morn
ing concluded that it was not safe to longer
ignore the dt mand for action, and went so
far i.s to say and to notify the Kaoi.k that a
proclamation would be ready for publication
last ecning. No proclamation came, nor
was any is-ued. AVhy, the citizens of Wich
ita need not be told. TliOmen wlio luo
been manipulating the ntlairc of lln city for
year-, simply would not permit it. They
cannot nllord to hiue that clas driven fiom
'the low n. The oflicial paper of the city and
the organ of the Democratic p-irty, still far
ther in-ults the p-ople by saying that thi
desire to protect life and property, is
only a partiMiu move. Was eer such an in
sult flung into the faces of a people! If
n partisan mon will free thi town of the
thugs mid robbers that infe-t it by the score
and the hundred, then in the name of fright
ened women and children let the parti-an
move go forward. We tell this city admin
istration and it organ that if there U any
partUanhip in the whole liu-inees it is upon
the other side; that it i in the iutcnt of the
parly to which th Heacon and the city ad-miui-tration
belong, or at lea't in the inter
est of the bosses of that jvirty.and oh, such a
set of lfo-sc. Tweed in hisp-dmiest days was
nowhere'. "We know, and t-e) docs that
committee of citizens Know, that thero
are De-mocrats in this city, and a large num
ber of them who will not touch the outfit
sailinir iHider their name with a ten-foot
polo. lSuttlito men, some of whom met
with the wgilanee committee, lineno inter
est in keeping the city full of alley thugs
and night prowlers, but upon the other
hand are anxious becaiiK' of the safety of
their home" to ge t rid of them.
In this matter, which in oh es ourpiop
eTly, our home"!, our families and our Kir
theKidl.K appeals to the citizens eif Wich
ita without regard to their party convic
tion. THERE IS A LAW.
Thero is a United Slate- election law
which was pawd to goiern all elee tion-at
which congremen are elected and which
empowers I'nitcel State's marshal" to arrest
any fraudulent lotcrs. Xext Tueday, con
gressman are elected in K-iusas and any im
portation, repeater or other men intending
to who knowingly ca-t an illeg'd vote will
do well to remember thi.
A HUNDRED TIMES WORSE.
The editor of the organ of the city admin
istration, the Wichita Daily Keaeon, delilxr
ate'lysaysif allairs in this city were a hun
dred tmie worse than the Kaoi.k has shown
them to be, it would oppose a ligilance
co.nmittex', In other words feir the sake of
doing the work of these men it would rather
two or four hundred roblierie should be
committed nightlv than Iwo or four.
ENTIRELY SAFE.
The Democrats are trying to eare Repub
licans who bet that the state of Kansas would
go twenty thousand majority for .Martin.
The Kaolk tells such Republicans tint the
talk is only made for tho purpose of getting
Kepublicaus to oiler to withdraw their bet".
John A. Martin will be e-lected by seieral
thousand more than twenty thous-md and
and our adiicc is to hold the mugwumps to
every bet.
NEV YORK. "
James (!. Klaine can be elected without
Xew York, but the carry ing of New York
by the Republicans de'eide the tight for the
Kepublicaus bey ond question. Tho editor
of the Kaiili. is in receipt of ndiich,rough
privnto sources from unquestioned authori
ty, which is to the etlect that the estimate or
poll made by the National Republican Cen
tral committee gii ing Klaine New York by
2i1,lti0 is a safe one.
NOT SO.
The subsidized oflicial pajwr of this city
has the impude'iicc to assert that thoy had
been told that the conimitte-e, or gentlemen
composing it, who met at the United States
Commissioners' court room, were pnrtizan
Kcpublicans. While we were not there-, we
know, ho know or should know, and the
men who were there know, that as good
men as this city aflbrds were present, Demo
crats and Itepublicms alike- Wo arc fur
ther informed that party or polities were
not once mentioned by any one'. They
xvereanAious men. but true who proposed
lend who still propose to protect themH-lics
and property, to do that which the Ilea-
con's bosses had so notoriously neglected
andTcfu6celtocio, ami that Is to give tins

HOW THEY HAVE LIED.
The Oklahoma boomers have industrious
ly and unblushingly asserted cier since
their nttempt to settle Oklahoma that Sena
tor Plumb Lad cnttlo interests down there,
and that'll wns therefore opposed to the set
tler's move., and responsible for the attitude
of the Interior Department toward Payne.
Senator Plumb made a speech a few ilays
ago at El Dorado, when it was n'ked about
these matters. He made answer by going
all over the entire question. As to the charge
that he owned any cattle in the Territory
he said if all the cattle in the Indian Terri
tory were to turn up dead he would not be
one cent poorer. After explaining the em
barrassments of the Indian committee in
congress upon that question, and telling
jut what efforts he had mado in behalf of
the settler moic, he wound up by saying.
"I belieie that cicry acre from which the
Indian has hcen remoicd should be open to
settlement by the people, free from the con
trol of corporations, railroads or monopo
lies of any kind, and as fast as it can be
done with justice to the Indians the whole
Territory should be opened to the settlement
ami control of the white man."
WHERE THEV COME FROM.
In answer ton query where diel all the
floating population in "Wichita como from,
and what arc they here for wo can only an
swer, go to the polls iict Tuesday and see
who votes them. There are thousands of
these men to spare in Jlissouri and the asser
tion made that the liquor dealers of Kaua
City, in pursuance of their bargain with
(Hick, were sending out thesemeninto Kan
sas towns seems about so. If the Krewer-'
association could afford to rai-e a campaign
fund innningaway up into tho many thous
ands of dollars', why couldn't tho whiskey
men afford to take care of this imported
i otc?
A SLAP IN THE FACE.
The organ of our bosses 'ays, and deliber
ately says, that tho man or men who would
uphold a meeting of citizens called for the
protection of their homes, are more danger
ous to the peace and safety, order and pros
perity, than all the burglars that have cier
been in this city, and then cites Cincinnati.
Welcaie that slup in the face to the men
who met to take some steps, toward persuad
ing the mayor and council to do something
to relioie the town of the presence of men
who would murder or burn with the same
readiness with which they would r obhome
and stiml if the opportunity ollercd.
A VERY LITTLE THINC.
"We want to say to all fair minded honor
able men that the report that the Kepubli
can state e-cntral committee were sending
out or printing u black ticket, or an in
graved ticket, which cannot bo altered or
scratched, and about which the Democratic
papers haie tunird themsuhes inside out, is
simply a falsehood lieuuifaetured out of
whole -!oth for political t fleet. "While each
p-irty has a perfe t legal and moral right to
decide upon the style of its ticket, we bale
seen no ueh ticket as has been described,
nor do we believe any such tieket was cier
printed.
A WONDERFUL MAN.
Take the speeches, made by lilainc in the
last month, from throe to ten each day, and
especially his speeches in Xew York city,
where In1 made a speech to the preacher-, a
speech to the bn-me-s men, a speech to tin
Irish-American8, a sitcech to tho financier-,
and a speech to the women, all perfectly
and comprehen-iiely applicable1 to the scl
eral audiences, and wo say, fully understand
ing the meaning of ourword-, that .lames (I.
lilainc is one of the most wonderfully erudite
men the worldhas eie r produced. In many
respects he viands without a per among
living men.
NOT DEMOCRATIC.
The Keaeon .iys tint the Democratic
p-irty has nothing to do with the city gov
ernment. We could hope not, but such a
hope Mould be folly. The city goi eminent
consists of an exeeutiie, lcgi-Iatiio and judi
cial elep-irtmenU. The executiie and his
clerk are 1 )emo rat, the legi-latiie staml
fiie Democrats to three Republican-, the
judicial might be said to be a stand-off, the
judge being a Democrat and the attorney a
1'c publican. Oh, no, thi- city is not i un by
partisan Democrat-!
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.
Let fiery 1U publican on Tucsd ly read hi
ticket from top to bottom before voting it.
The Keaeon of this city has unnounn d that
it will print a ticket headed regular Repub
lican, with Klaine and Logan's ii-iiue at the
top and filled in with Democratic and mug
wump candidates. Such a ticket will mis
lead and deccii i" the most wary unless it is
read over name by name.
(it your tickets of some ono who holds on
the straight ticket.
Wo want a Kepublicau legislature so a- to
e'lect a Kc-publicau United States 'cnator, so
that the senate of the United States witl be
Republican under the administration of
.lames G. Klaine. To bring this about lote
for Republican nominees.
STILL IN LINE.
To Hie VMltorortliollslli Knalc
Apreqios of the assertion made in Friday's
Keaeon, that the utterance's of the clerical
bigct Kurehard in presenting mi address to
to Mr. Klaine had the effect of alienating the
Catludic Republicans of this eutv from t lie J
Republican p-irty and to cause them to pull
off their badges. I desire to state that the
Republicans referred to are still In line and
wearing tlioir badges. 1 confess that the
language of the address at first staggered
me, but when I come to reflect tint neither
Mr. Klaine nor any of tho managers of his
canvass were in anyway responsible for it.
1 see no reason why any Catholic should de
sert Mr. Klaine or the Republican.partv
simply because a bigoted crank made iis.i
of insulting expressions in presenting an ad
dress. The spirit of the adelro- in question
does not harmonize with Mr. Maine's, senti
ment as expressed in a letter concerning hi
family and religion, written March the 10:h,
1S7C:
"My ancestors- on my father's side were, as
you know, always identified with the Pre
by terian church, nnd they were prominent
and bonorenl in the old colony of Peniisj 1
vanin. Kut I will never conent to make any
public declaration upon the subject, for two
reason; Kir-t, because I abhor the intro
duction of anything that looks like a relig
ious te-t or qualification for otlice in a re
public w here perfect freedom of con-deuce
is the birthright of every citizen; and, sec
ond, bcism-e my mother was a dentcd
Catholic. I would not for a thou-.ind
presidencies speak a disre-pectful
word of my mother's religion, amino pres
sure will draw me into any avowal oflm-til-itv
or unfrienlincs- to Catholic-, though I
have iieicr iwcliecL and do not expect, any
political support from them." If Catholics
feel agrieved at the language in epiestion let
them turn to the other side and whit will
they find. Kragg's insulting utlcraneos at
the comcr.tion that nominated Cleveland;
Gro cr himself xvho requjsed tlie w ithdrawal
of the "Freedom of Worship" because it
would cuibara-s him George William Cur
tis and the Harpers, who are well kifbwn as
the most bigoted anti-Catholic wTiters in the
world and w ho are now the ardent support
ers of the Democratic candidate. In view o
these fact and hundreds of others which I
have not time tocnnaiuerate, I sec no reason
changing my jwlitics. lave or die, sink or
swim, survive or perish, I will stand by the
I ..,
nieputjlican party through thi campaisn.

DERBY DELINEATOR.
To Iht.Etlitor of He Datln iUiqle:
The best of the wine was reserved for the
end of the fea-t. We have had some good
meetings at Derbv this fall, but it was re
served for Judge Peters to aroue the most
enthusiasm. I am like the lady who had
used many superlative- in describing beau
tiful objects; when the looked at the sub
limity of tho Xiagara Palls, she said :
" What shall I say? I've ued all my adjec
tives. The judge was e-corted to the place of
speaking by the Jfuliane Po-t bind, and a
number of our most prominent citizens. He
was introduced by Dr. Tucker,
and gaic us a masterly speech
on the issues between the parties.
He was eloquent, fair, logical and witty;
made many happy hits and no enemies. Ho
talked a if he were ono of u, and not a su
perior sort of being whom it wa our duty
to worship. Time and again he iia- inter
rupted by vociferous applause. Whatever
man be thought of his politics, thero were
none that did not recognize Ms earnestiie-s,
and beliei e that Judge Peters would not do
all in his powar for his constituency. 1
think there i- no doubt but that Rockford
will roll up an old temo majority.
The faithful Mulvano Post band play ed
some fine martial music, ami many an old
soldier's heart beat fater as he heard again
the music to w hieh he had gone forth to
light and to comiuor. Our thanks to tho
band.
.Much of the success of the meeting was
due to the exertions of tho-e stalwart young
Republicans, Samuel Waugh, James McCoy
and John Kingder.
No politi al meeting in Derby ever drew
so many good looking ladies. 1 wish you
could haio seen the smiling faces that greet
ed the judge. All honor to tho ladies that
graced the mectiug with their presence.
THAT SCANDAL.
Maria Halpin Gives to the Public a
Statement Relative to tho
Buffalo Affair.
-jpccial to the Inter Ocean.
Nkw Yoiiic, Oct. CO. The efforts of Gro
ver Cleveland's friends to defame Maria
Halpin and to surround her name with
scandal more lilo than that which is attach
ed to her through her association with .Mr.
Cleiland haie at last brought from Mrs.
Ilalpm the first words she has spoken in her
defence. A series of affidavits were niado
public to-night which show that Man i Hal
pin is not the bad ami elcsiguing woman she
lias been pictuied by her Millers, and th it
while Air. Cleveland has been shouting "tell
the truth"' to an iniestig-iting committee,
his friends have not 'topped at perjury to
suppre-s it. Mr?. Hatpin's affidaiit was
made xoluntarily and without sugge-tion
from outside sources. Soon after reading
Henry Warel Kecehcr's defcu-o of Mr.
Cloi eland and bis slanderous attacks on the
life she led prior to and since her acquaint
ance with Mr. Cleveland, she 'cut for her
son and announced her intention of defend
ing her womanhood and her family. Acting
undi r his advice, -he ha- mado the" following
state meut under oath:
State of New York, county of AVe-tches-ter.
.Maria IS. Halpin. being- dulv sworn,
say: I reside at New Rochelle, in the
county of Wcstche-ter, slate- afore -aid. I
am the person whose name hasbee-n pub
lished m connection with tint of Gioicr
Clei eland as the mothi rofhis on, I bale
been induced to remain silent wl.:1- the dis
grace and sutl'i-ring brought upon mo by
Groie-r Cleiclaud haie been di-cu--i'd and
criticised by the public and the pre--, and 1
would most gladly rem tin silent even now
but fr the duty which I owe to my aged
and afflicted father, my children and my
-i-lers, to whom mv troubles were unknown
until made publfc by publication a few
months ago. My duty to tho-e relathe-, to
the friend- who knew me before my ac
quaintance with (irener UN it-land, who-e
kind uuranei-s of hue and sympathy and
(nlldeiiee h lie rciihcd me-, etnupi 1- me to
make a public state-mi nt and denial of many
ol the statements wluihliive 1kn.ii made
liublie concerning me .iiul my charaetir
and mtK'ii- while in Puflalo. J would
gladly avoid further publicity of this t ni
ble mi-fortune if 1 could do so without ap
pearing to permit the foul and fal-e
statements concerning my chaiactcr.
and h Jilts cspeeially those mule by Mr.
Horatio C King, and pubh-bul with
dlegt-d approial of (i urnor Cleiclaml
himself. These st itcun-iit- haie been ac
cepted by iiriny journals a- true, and ap
pear to the defense or excuse of Goiornor
Clei eland for his action toward anil treat
ment of me, as well as his story a to mv
h-ibits and character before and 'during hfs
acquaintance with me. I do not believe it
possible tint eien (inner Cleveland could
attempt to further bheken me in tho eyes of
the world after all ho has compelled me to
endure for him and their sake-. 1 deny that
there was anything in mi actions or again't
mv character, at any time or imv libice, un
to the hour I formed the acquaintauee of
liroier tleieland, wlncli ho or any otlier
person can ca-t the slightest su-picion oier
mo un to Ih it hour. My life was a, pun
and spotles as that of anv lady in the cilv of
Kullalo, a f let which (,roier Cleveland should
be in-in enough ami just enough to admit, and

tained an introduction to me from a person
in whom I had ei cry confidence, and he paid
me mtv marked attention. His character,
so far as then knew, was good, and his in
tention, 1 believed, was pure and honorable.
The e-ireum-tam e'r under which my ruin was
accomplished i too revolting upon Gron-r
CleicHnd to be m ide public. I did not see
Grover Cleveland fur liicorsiv weeks after
my ruin, and then I was obliged to send for
him, he being the proper person to whom I
could tell my trouble. I will not at this
time detail my sub-equent sufferings ami
the birth of our beiy on September 1 1, 1S71,
but 1 will say tho statement published in
tho Hull ilo Telegram in the main is true.
