THE EEPTJBIIC: SUNDAY. JULII 22. 1D00.
REPUBLICAN CITY COMMITTEE FIGHT, Grows Out of Efforts to Squelch the 'Anti-Ziegenhein Forces in Pour Wards. THERE'S NO BARGAIN VACATION HERE. t w r mr . m. r .k. k. " ' " HSJtl tR w " BAD SPLIT IS THREATENED. alerting To-Moitow at Which' the Trouble Will Come Up for Ad justment, but the Pros pect Is Squally. The Republican City Commute? is en raged at the present timft In a quarrel that threatens to split it Into two factions. A meeting trill be held to-morrow, at which time the settlement cf tho -ward contests will come up for final adjudication. Th- Republicans hate trouble on their hands In four wards. They are the Tenth, in which the case of Krats agalnt Ueseh Is the- point of ifue; the Twentieth, in which Shaefer is contesting the seat of Brunk: the Twenty-fourth, in which there ! trouble between Blake and Remrncrs, and tho Tnenty-niih. in which both Myerson and Kirby are contestants. In all tho wards the trouble nroso over the attempt of the Zlegenhcln machine to control tho delegates to tho. Kansas City convention and also'tp dominate the City Committee. The fight in the wards is bit ter, and especially so In the Tenth, which has been taken Into the courts by Mr. Kratz. Notwithstanding th- action of tho Etate Convention.. -a seating the Kratz dele gation, tho machine l.a already determined that ho shall not have a seat in the City Committee. This has been determined in a star cham ber resylon of the Ziegenheln members of the committee. The committee (-elected a Fuhcommitte. with John U. Owen as chtir mail. He made his report at ihe last meet ins ef tho City Committee, in which the following resolution was? adopted: "TIyi the committee rrcommer.I the op pes us factions In tach or tto contesting tiahis be request il to lay asiJe their con tents : nd sele t .1 compromise canuidate. and that ten days be granted the factions to select and tile- the names." But Uie bald effrontery of the City Hall gang S'11 ? further than that. The report recommends "that in the event of a failure ore the -part of the opposing faction ta Fect caniidate in the manmr specified, then yoi : honorable boIy declare vacan cies in th wards and till same by election of the Centra' Committee." This effect'i.tlly gaps the antl-Zlegenheln niemlxTs . the committee who were recog nized by the Kansas City convention. The delegation from these wards wero the sole arbiters of thei- selections. Tn nullify the action of tiie dclecite. throw ing aside the indorsement uf, the State Con vention, is radical enough to warrant the statement that It is "rotten." If the Cen tral Committee takes su;h action as is pro posed in the Owen's resolution it puts it s If In the light that an action at court will net uphold it. Taking tile matter out of the hands of the voters is stretching the game too far. Besides throwing Kratz down in the Tenth Ward, it is said tLe commltiee will recom mend that Fred Smith be rented in the Twenty-fourth Ward in place of Wake and Kem'mtrs. The antl-Zfcgenheln member of the committee threaten a revolt at any such, tactics. They will not stand fJr the decision of the subcommittee. Then there Is Mr. Kratz to count upon. Mr. Kratz has made the fur fly before, and it is hardly possible lie will slop at this early stage In the pro ceedings. CALIFORNIA FRUIT DAMAGED. 'o Peaches or Prunes Will Bo Ex ported This Year. Los Angeles, Cal., July 2L There will be HO peaches nor prunes exported from this rart of the Stato thli jcar, according to the statements of fruit growers. President A. 7t. Spraguo of the Southern California Deciduous Fruit Exchange, in an inter view, says: "There will bo very little dried fruit in thK section this year, exept that which cames from tho North. There will bo no shipments of peaches or prunes. The apricot crop also is very short. Only here and there is thTe n locality in which the apricot crop approaches the average. "This shortage, for the most part. Is caused by most unseasonably warm weath er In January, followed by cold but not frosty, weather Tho same weather condi tions exist in Arizona also. "This condition of tho deciduous fruit crop is most disastrous to th Southern California growers, because maiiy of them will have absolutely nothing to sell this j ear Kut the trees are now leafing out and Ketiing their usual appearance, so that with a good rainfall during the coming sea son we may hope for full crops another year."

Right Man for the Place May He Hard to Find. Councilman Hodgeu's resignation as chair, man of the Ways and Means Committee of tho City Council has occasioned considcr kblo speculation as to whut effect his action will have in relation to the gentral ap propriation bill.

William Maloney, Oravhaired Jani tor, Climbs Flagstaff at Fourth District Station. PAINTERS DECLINED THE TASK. Little Man's Ferformance Was Witnessed by a Large Crowd He Served at Balaldava and Inkennaun. William Maloney, a veteran of the Crim ean War. who Is about CO years old. and U employed about the Fourth District FoIIco Station ns porter, performed a feat j ester day which many younger men refused to hazard. The Fourth District Station is bWng painted, and it was decided that the Hag- staff must bo niado to harmonize with tho rest of the building. Hut when the order was given to the painters they emphatical ly declined to do it. as the pole Is very slen der and rises about scvcnty-rlvo feet above the roof of the building. When "Billy" Ma loney heard of the action of tho painters he became angry. Recalling the days when he crslscd the occars as a sailor, h" grabbed tho jalnt bucket and pcalud the flagstaff as easily as a tar does the rigging cf a ship. Reforo ho went up tho polo the "old salt" announced his purpose to Captain Kicly. who tried to dissuade him. but he was Arm. Rllly Is well known in the neighbor hood and when tho word was passed around that he would climb tho flagstaff and paint It, a crowd gathered to witness the per formance. Though old and somewhat bro ken, the gray-haired veteran retains all his youthful vigor. He scaled the pole ulto easily and to the top fastened a rope, ono end of which was tied about his body and .1... a.1.h .u Tvifirtltintnt ed ft-ntrt holnnr Then he slid to the bottom and obtained his bucket of paint. He finished the job In half an hour and playfully flirted his brush at the crowd below when he reached the top. They cheered him lustily. The old , Crimean veteran had nothing tut scorn for the painters who refused to paint the pole. He did not consider his act worth record ins. Moloney was under the command of Lord Cardigan in tho camralgn of 1834 at Cala klava, Inkerman and Mallkoff. At the scaling of the heights of Mallkoff the Index finger on his right hand wu shot off.

Fort Scott, Kas., Cuts Off Fifths of Its Area- Two- Fort Fcott. Kas.. July 21. Two-fltths of the total area of this city, including the original riot and all additions, will be cast off and thrown Into tho county by an order of the council Just given, upon recom mendation of th city engineer. This Is evidence of a humblo submission to the collapse of the big boom In the Int ter eighties, and an effort to assist In the readjustment of municipal affairs to con formity with ratural conditions. Notwithstanding there havp been a gradual Inerea in population for some years and a manifest Inclination toward prosperity, the exclusion of nearly one-half of the aggre gate area of tho city will throw out but fifty voters and will reduce the city's re ceipts from taxes Ie than $300 rcr year. Sixteen additions will he cut out, the ob ject being to shift tho responsibility of the maintenance of streets and bridges upon the county. JAY GOULD'S YACHT SOLD.

Quotes Some New Evidence to Frove It, and Fredicts a Sweeping Victory. REPUBLIC sr-ECIAL. High Hill. Mo.. July 21. At a large open air picnic here to-day In Rosenbcrgcr's pas ture Champ Clark opened his campaign for re-election. In the preface to his speech he spoke as follows: "I congratulate the country on the fact that Democrats are getting together every where East. North. South and West; that the Democracy is thoroughly united I havo positive, personal and peculiar information. Two years and a half ago I began writing a weekly Democratic letter for tho American Press Association, each letter to consist of about 2.S00 words. I have kept il Up every week ever since, until now my letter prob ably has as many readers as any metro politan dally In the United States. "For the first two years every time I ex pressed a blunt, unequivocal opinion on cur rent politics Eome tenderfoot Democratic editor somewhere would drop that letter liko a hot otato. When I delivered my speech In Congress against tha annexation of Hawaii, which was really the tlrst step In imperial aggrandizement, the I'mplre against the Republic, et ct-tira, I cut the speech up Into about seven 'of these weekly letters. and although It was written In the very best style of which I was capable, about one-half of the editors using the letters quit It sud denly and Indignantly. "Now. howccr, thoso very same editors1 are again using tay letters, and, what's more, arc yelling at the top of their voices against imperialism, the very thing that I was lighting In that Hawaiian speech. "It Is tho same way with the money ques tion. If, a year or eighteen months ago, I said very much in my letter about readopt lng and not reaflirming the Chicago plat form, some goldbug Democrat somewhere dropped by letter like it was loaded. Rut I had the pleasure of sitting In the Kansas City convention as a spectator nnd teeing several of those same editors vote with ve hemence and vociferousness for the Very honesty and consistency on the money ques tion which I had advocated all the time. They say that the test of the pudding la in chewing the string. Now I s-ay the very same thing with as much force and as little beating around the bush as ever, and the circulation of my letter has multiplied many fold. "I state this as an evidence of the get ting together Of the Democrats not usually known, because to roe It had a very prac tical side to It: large circulation for the let ters meant a largelylncreased bank ac-, count: diminished circulation meant a di minished bank account.

"Last spring l had another evidence of tho wondrous getting together of the Dem ocrat. Chairman Jones or the National Committee mtnt me to Rhode Island to make two speeches In their s?prlng camraign for State ornc-.rs. When I got to Rhode island 1 met the managers of the camptlgn. and told them I would not make anv kind of speech in Rhod Island except the kind I was in th h3bit of making In Missouri. They replied that that was precisely th kind they wanted me to make. I preached Dtmocracy stra'ght. as we understand it out here, nnd I never received more ap plaue In Mts-ourl or anvwhere else than I did in Rhode Wind. "Of courst?. there are rlentv of other evi dences known to most observers.

Anna Gould, the proprietress- of th Hotel Alma, at No. 23 Chestnut street, fell through a skyligit yesterday afternoon Into a store beneath the hotel, a -nnn- nf about eighteen feet. A lot of broken glass rell with her to the floor, but ste was only slightly cut and bruised. She was carried upstairs to her room, where a physician was called to attend her. After an examination he pronounced htr Injuries slight. From the top cf the hotel, which Is three stories high, to the llrst floor Is a light shaft about ten feet square. A skylight at tlw bottom of tho shaft lets the light Into the store under the hotel. To get on this roof over the store one has to climb out a second-story window and down on a ladder. Mrs. Gould refused to tell the police what she was doing on the roof. When she had been taken to her room it was found that tiie ladder used to reach tho skylight bad been placed In position. i STEAM SCHOONER ADRIFT. Farted From the Towing Vessel During a Gale.
