IHh SX and I'ennsjlvania Ave.
Washington. Nov. IB. Gov ernor Jenkins
of Oklahoma is in Washington to see th.
ITesident in regard to his continuance in
oince and to answer charges preferred
against him at the Interior Department. He
arrived In Washington late last night. To
da he went to church and latff called on
home of his friends. He said he would see
the President on Monday and wculd make
a statement that would convince Mr. Roose
velt and Secretary Hitchcock that the
charges against him were filed merely to
prevent his reappointment and that they
were without basis.
It Is known that the Governor will depend
to a large extent upon his Ohio friends to
support him In his effort to retain his place.
Reports that the President has decided to
remove Governor Jenkins and appoint Hor
ace Speed, United States District Attorney,
have been positively discredited at tho In
terior Department. A high official at the
department said to-day that Mr. Koosoelt
had not jet taken up tha charges, but that
he would do su bffore Congress convened
and then decide whether he would reappoint
the Governor or appoint some other Re
publican. Appointed During; n Ilecesa.
Governor Jenkins was appointed during
the recess of Congress, and under the law
would erve until the expiration of the com
ing session of Congress, even if not nom
inated to the Senate. In order to continue
longer he would have to be nominated and
confirmed. It Is Impossible to secure from
the administration a definite statement of
the charges tiled against Jenkins. The best
information obtainable Is that they are not
serious enough to demand immediate re
moval, but are such as make it improbable
that he will get a four- ear commission
after confirmation. The Oklahoma gover
norship in the past three years has given
the Waphington authorities a great deal of
cre and correspondence. Under C M.
Barnes, the predecessor of Jenkins, charges
of more or le-s seriousness were filed al
most daily. They were explained more or
less convincingly, and with the aid of Ohio
influences upon President McKInley, Burt.es
was permitted to. finish his term.
Eiplnnutlon Wu N.it Satisfactory.
It is said that the charges filed against
Jenkins, soon after his appointment, were
not at first considered very grave, but the
President was not satisfied with tho expla
nation of Jenkins, which was to the effect
that the matters alleged were for the con
sideration of the Oklahoma Legislature and
not the Washington authorities. Mr. Jen
kins may present some facts which will
give him a better standing, but It is hardly
probable with the present disposition of the
administration, that he will get a new com
mission. The question of his successor, however. Is
still open. Zach Mulhall at first appeared
to be sure of the place, but this Is not de
cided. New candidates have appeared and
there will be an active contest In which the
Influent of Senators and Representatives
will be used. There has been so much fac
tional fighting among Oklahoma Republic
ans that President Roosevelt may go out
side the Territory for the new Governor.
Various names are mentioned, including
that of D. P. Dyer of St. Louis. There is
nothing to warrant this, beyond Secretary
Hitchcock's acquaintance with Colonel
Dyer and the fact that he thinks well of
him as an official.
The governorship appears to be a free-for-all
contest, and it Is probable that Pres
ident Roosevelt will settle the matter finally
by appointing some one hut little thought
of"fbr the place, as he has-done in several
other contested. cases.

FROM SOUTHERN TRIP.
Many Good Words Spoken for St.
Louis Manufacturers and
SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY SHOWN
Xew-Korn Prosperity Evidenced
on Every Hand Another Ex
cursion Soon Will I?e
After what Is regarded as the most suc
cessful of the five excursions given by the
St. Louis Merchants' and Manufacturers
Excursion Association Into tributary States,
the party of sixty-five representative busi
ness men who have spent the last week
touring the South returned to their homes
The notion that such an expedition Is more
of a lark than a profitable advertising
scheme has been sufficiently answered by
the fruit of this excursion. Another will be
given. The plans for this have not yet been
matured or even officially discussed. But
among tho excursionists it was common
talk that It would be through Arkansas and
Louisiana along line about as far from the
Mississippi River as have been those Just
The Louisiana Purchase Exposition Com
pany, it may be confidently asserted, will
take advantage of the advertising oppor
tunity offered by the next excursion even
it-arc extensively than of the one Just end
ed. "The World's Fair directors had no
Idea," said their representative, Mr. Robert
Kern, "of the great benefit which co-operation
In one of these business men's excur
sions could be to them. Their asking me to
go through Kentucky, Tennessee and Mis
sissippi was in the nature of an experiment.
The success which attended the efforts of
Mr. Allen and myself In Mississippi proved
the wisdom of that experiment. Mississippi,
which appropriated nothing for the Chicago.
Atlanta and Buffalo expositions, will cer
tainly spend In the neighborhood of JG0.OW
in St. Louis. Other States are equally amen
able to the sort of encouragement and per
suasion which won success for us this last
While the representatives of the firms
which supported the last excursion made no
effort to take orders for goods In the short
stays which were allowed the many towns
visited, they feel that the city of St. Louis
has been so advertised that it will be easy
for their traveling men to reap a harvest
by Invading the same territory immediately.
Ihis will be done,
Tho Southern merchants who have been
to hospitable will be shown the advantages
Of Purchaslnc from St. Iuls tobhers and
manufacturers rather than from competing
firms in smaller cities.
In all their trip through the South, the
St. Loulsans met with but two rebuffs, and
these were so ludicrous In their origin that
no ill-will w?s entertained. They were due
to disappointment in love. A young man at
Water alley. Miss , seeing his fiancee danc
ing a Cakewalk with Charles Lemp and Har
ry Prufrock, rushed to a telegraph station,
where he wired ahead that the St. Louis
party were to a man In the condition of
"boiled owls." This was at 2 o'clock in the
afternoon. Vet the Inhabitants of the next
two towns hid behind barricaded doors.
"Private" John M. Allen then came to the
rescue, and, after apologies and forgiveness,
the St. Loulsans deDarted In cood order.
The great source of encouragement was
the evidence on every hand of a new-born
prosperity in the South. New schools and
colleges, new courthouses, churches, facto
ries and dwellings were to be seen In almost
every town, and the Influx of new agricul
tural machinery and methods is putting a
new aspect on the vast region which nail
long been suffering under the burdens left
by the Civil War. St. Louis products have
already gained a firm footing throughout all
the Southern States. Furniture, hardwaic,
machinery, shoes and millinery bearing ht.
Louis trademarks occupied prominent posi
tions In numberless show windows. It waj
the hope of the excursionists to begin a
campaign In the South which shall com
plete the business Interdependence of this
sectlOT with the World's Fair city, and m
the success of their first venture all te
turned to St. Louis satisfied, while the
hearty appreciation of the orators- of Mr.
Kern had left no doubt of the South's Inter
est in the Louisiana Purchase Exposition
KILPATRICK REMAINS SILENT.
Steadfastly Refuses to Talk of Mon
tana Train Robbery.
All efforts on tho part of Chief of De
tectives Desmond to extract anything from
Ben Kllpatrlck relative to his connection
with the train robbery at Wagner, Mont,
have so far been unsuccessful. The prisoner
was yesterday subjected to a rigid examina
tion by Chief Desmond, but he refused to
make any statement about the robbery.
Chief Desmond, however, has hopes that the
man win weaieen irom tne sturuy position
he- has maintained since his Incarceration
In the Four Courts and thinks he will 5et
tell something about the robbery.
Kilpatrick was taken from the holdover
yesterday afternoon and was in Chief Des
n ond's office for two houra. During that
time he talked more than on any previous
occasion. His conversation pertained to his
relatives, but when the question of the train
robbery was approached by Chief Desmond,
the prisoner refused to talk.
"I don't see how I can benefit you In talk
ing about the robbery you say 1 have com
mitted." said Kllpatrlck In a sarcastic man
ner in answer to the Chief's question to tell
what he knew about the robbery.
When Chief Desmond asked Kllpatrlck
how he came In possession or the bills round
on his person, he refused to answer, and
from then on would make no replies to the
questions put to him.

It. IT. Finley Discusses Wallace
To the Editor of The Ilepubllc.
St. Louis, Nov. 17. In this morning's Re
public I saw- a statement from W. H. Wal
lace that former Governor W. J. Stons
bolted the Democratic ticket In 1S78 or
1ES0. As I lived In that district. I think I
know something of the facts, and like a
great many other slanders there Is Just
enough truth In the statement to lend it
color. Of course. I am writing from mem
oryT and may be at fault In some minor de
tails, but of the main facts I am certain.
From removals, deaths, etc.. the Judicial
Committee was. I think, entirely obliter
ated. Perhaps there was one left, but I
think not. This district was composed of
Barton. Cedar. Dade, St. Clair and Vernon
counties. Dade County had a candidate In
Judge Parkinson of Greenfield and Vernon
In Judge C R. Scott of Nevada. There
was no Judicial Committee to call a can
ventlon. Right here comes In the first Irregularity.
The County Committee of Dade County
called a Judicial convention and Invited the
other four counties to send delegates. One
county. I think It was St. Clair, responded,
but the other three declined to do so. but
called county conventions and elected Cen
tral Committeemen, who. In turn, met and
called a Judicial convention. This conven
tion met and nominated Judge Scott, but
In the meantime the delegates from Dade
nd St. Clair counties met and nominated
Judge Parkinson, so the district had two
Democratic candidates for Circuit Judge,
both claiming to be the regular nominee,
and from a strictly technical standpoint
perhaps neither entitled to the claim.
The Republican party put up C. G. Bur
ton of Nevada, and as Parkinson and Scott
divided the Democratic vote about equally
Burton was elected.
Now Governor Stone supported Judge
Scott, who. It seems to me, came nearer
being regularly nominated than did Judge
Parkinson, but this Is a point where honest
men might differ. R- H. FINLEY.

Whitehead says that when he first con
ceived the Idea of a flying machine he no
ticed that birds run a few feet on the
ground to gain headway before soaring, and
he put in the automobile for that reason.
He Is confident that his apparatus can make
forty-five miles an hour and says that he
has already traveled at that rate of speed
In his old model.
"We can put the machine on the market

Mathles was Indicted last summer for

was out on ball upon a JiWO bond. The
frlncipal witness against him was a negro
ivlng In the same neighborhood. About a
month ago the negro was assassinated. The
two Montgomery went to arrest Mathles
for making Illicit whisky, and it Is sup
posed that they were prevailed upon to re
main for the night, and were shot while
guarding their prisoner.
A posse of thirty or forty citizens of
Oxford went to the scene to-day and every
effort will be made to capture Mathles.
