S jeSsEH.Hv-5l HSHJSStCvX -- s- -f ls1:I rc 1 r SU 3 I WILL HEAR CHARGES AT TO-DAY'S MEETING Republican Execntive Committee to Listen to Defendant City Committeemen. STATE COMMITTEE WILL ACT. -Charges and Counter-Charges the Order of the Day Issue of Fair Elections Up to the Partv Organization. State Chairman Aklns yesterday sent out notices to tho sixteen members of the Re publican City Central Committee, against whom charges have been preferred by the seven committeemen opposed to a snap Judgment fusion with Leo Meriwether, to appear before the Executive Committee to day. The charges, which were published In The Republic yesterday, will be considered and recommendations made to the entire State Committee to-morrow, when final action probably will be taken. Those who aro opposed to a fraudulent primary Insist that the State Committee will find the majority of the City Committee t guilty of cnterln? Into a conspiracy with political opponents. Friends of National Committeeman Kerens assert with equal as- f surance that State Chairman Aklns's sup porters will be unable to convince the Slate I Committee of any wrongdoing on their part. It would be Impossible to overestimate j the amount of ill-feeling which has been ( aroused by the charges. That the radical action was a surprise to the frienda of t Kerens will not be disputed by an one who Is familiar with conditions. Yesterday they were in conference at various times ( To use a popular expression, they were "up In the air " , Iuoc or Political Morality. It may be fairlv paid thnt rn .-ittemnf Is made to deny the statements made In the J t cnarges. .However, tnero is an attempt to , blame members of the subcommin . Executive Committee, to whom Were told ; some of the details of the consoiracy to nominate a fusion ticket for disclosing par ty secrets: it belnc claimed thnt ihei bppa given In executive session. Whether thkj is true makes little differ nce now that the facts regarding the fusion have been formally recognized Tho fight Is made against unfair elections within the party organization, and the usurpation of power by a City Committee, which proposed to perpetuate itself at tho expense of popu lar government. Lee Meriwether yesterday sent a request to the subcommittee of the City Committee asking that he be given equal representa tion of Judges and clerks at the primaries, saying that his Interests must be protected. John JJ Owen, chairman of- the subcommit tee,, stated that the requeit would be grant ed. Meriwether, on his part, promises to appoint nothing but former Republicans as his share of Judges and clerks Will Aot Take Chance. All of which Is cited by opponents cf j it?iuii us cujiuwiiiiuu ui men ciuim mat the majority In the City Committee lias sold out the partv. Uefore the subcom nil tee of the State Committee. It was stated that the fusion ticket would he "put over the plate" and no chances of defeat woJld be taken. With Meriwether hav ing representation in the primary, a straight ticket would s'and about as much show as a snowball In a Lot furnace The fuslonl'ts would have no nee i to visit the b'allot bx)XC3. Their work would be done for them. Friends of K'rens Insist that the State Committee has no right to take any sort of action. It Is possible, though hird'y probable, that they will not apnea- befor" the State Committee to defend thems Ives. They may remain awaj and finally depend upon the courts to sustain them In their defiance of the Stat oiganlzaiion If tnli happen1) the meetings to-day and to-imr-row will be tame atialrs. Otherwise, tnors will be "doings" of a rare order Nominees on tne lupub'.ican ti'ket con-! ferrcd with State Chairman Aklns 5M"' djy. Among thoe present were Mosss Wh "bark of Marble Hill, and Edward HUhee of Lancaster nominees fo- bjpremc Court, J U. White of Brookileld, nominee for Superintendent of Schools, and Barny Frauenthal of St. Louis, nominee for Rail road ComnUsloner. It is said that the situation here In St. Louis was explained in detail and that they approved the action of the minority in the City Committee in preferring charges Seme of them open! announced that tney would rather go down in defeat than prolit by n stolen primary John H Isothwell of Sedal'a. a mem ber of the Executive Committee, arrived jestcrday and will attend to-da's meet ing. He gave no opinion on the develop ment, salng that his intormaticn was de rived from the newrpapcrs. Uefore the day ends, he probublv will have an op portunity of getting his nil. Laat Fillnn Ila Tnesilny. Meanwhile. manj of the candidates are filing for the primaries. The last filing day Is Tuesdaj . the hour of closing bMiig 11 a. m. Tho candidates who have file 1 thus far are not on the fusion slate, but arc running independently. If the State Committee docs reorganize the City Committee. Kerens will be out of the running in St Louis His friends say thnt If an attempt is made to hold a dele gate convention, they will participate, ask lor Judges and clerks, and try to secure a majority of the delegates. The City, Committee will meet this even ing, when ludges and clerks will be se lected, the slate named and other dctall3 of the fusion deal arranged. It may be ex citing enough to satisfy the most Jaded nolitlclan owing to the fact that the mi nority will be on hand In full force. It Is possthle that an attempt may he made to oust the minority from the com mittee and fill their places with friends of Kerens. If this Is done, nothing less than a rough house may be expected.

A fight In low rates has been precipitated on the triangular course of the big trunk lines dividing at the Mississippi River, and a serious passenger war, which may result In utter demoralization, is threatened. The lines interested will place tickets on sale to-day In St. Louis, Kansas City and Chicago, and passenger agents are unable to predict to what reductions the contest may force them The brokers state that they have prepared to participate, and be fore 3Ionday travelers mav be able to ride between these cities in upholstered cars for the price of a street car fare and enjoy free cigars with even- ticket. A week ago the Chicago and Alton an nounced less than one fare for the round trip between St. Louis and Chicago and Chicago and Kansas City, and a one fare for the round trip between St. Louis and Kansas City. The Wabash and the Illi nois Central at once Isued similar an nouncements. A meeting of the St. Louis Kansas City lines immediately followed. The Alton round-trip rate between the 3IissourI cities was left standing and a one way rate of $1 put In. This action evened the schedule, which will be effective to day, to-morrow, Sunday and 31 onlay, cov ering the Labor Day excursions. The situ ation was thought to be safe. But eterday the agents of the direct lines between St. Lolls and Kansas City were startled by an announcement from the 3Iissouri, Kansas and Texas of a 53 one-way rate between St. Louis and Kan sas City. Another meeting of the St. Louis Kansas City lines was called The Katy stood by its rate The other lines made no reduction, but the Frisco came Into the rontest, and all lins agreed to make the K.itv's 53 ore-wav rate the- basis for rates west of Karsas Cltj, south of the Union Pacific to Ogden. The brokers were on the watchout for the news, and, on hearing it. they smiled. "Bj 3Iondav night," they stated, "we'll te selling tickets one wa for $1 00, and may be Ies- " Paengcr ofiitials state that they under stand that the broker-, have mnn tickets on hand, and they hive instructed their agenis to "bast" all tickets purchased from brokers. That means that whenever a broker's ticket is discovered, it will be taken up. canceled, and the holder called upon to pay full fare or aligr-t from tne train. The tight is .1 repetition of the light in Texas cities a few das ago on excur sions to St. Iuis. Kansas City and Chi eago. v.hlch was a broker's harvest, ard tli condition at these three important points is simpl a removal of the fight north. The officials have met dallv for a week, but the ineetliics have resulted in good natured "i-cclal"." as no road wou'd recede from its position unless the Alton would agree to call ir its first low-rate announce ments. Th- rates offered for the three davs are as follows. Between St Louis and Cuicaco round trip, S3, the regular onc-wav rate is JT CO and the round trip $13 Between St Louis and Kansas Citj round trip.
