Topeka, Kan., June 10. "With less than
COO.000 - oters in Kansas the secret political
societies have a membership of 138,000.
Their growth is phenomenal, and by 1892
they will be in a position to make party
platforms and dictate all nominations. As
a result affairs politically have become so
badly mixed that the voters who have re
fused to join any of them have been forced
to take a stand against secret societies in
politic for their own protection.
The Republican campaign last fall was
made on the platform that secret political
societies were un-American and should have
no place in the politics of a free govern
ment. It was used everywhere. On the
stump and in the party organs secret po
litical societies were denounced and the
State Central Committee prepared an able
address covering all the points.
Meeting Them on Their Own Ground.
Since the election, however, the Repub
licans who were dissatisfied with the man
ner in which the campaign was conducted
have adopted the Alliance tactics, and the
Knights of Reciprocity, with its member
Mr P of 20.000 in the State, and the Knights
anij Ladie of America, with a total mem
bership of 3,000 and a voting membership
ol 3,000, is the result, and these two so
cieties lonn the secret political strength of
the Republican party.
The People's party, however, is com
posed of nothing but secret political so
cieties The Citizens' National Industrial
Alliance, composed of town politicians and
labor agitators, the Anti-Monopoly Society,
made of the same material, and the farm
ers' Alliance comprise the frill strength of
the party The Citizens' Alliance has a
membership of 20,000, the Farmers' Alli
ance 90,000 and the Anti-Monopolists S.OO'l.
The Democrats are not in it at all so fnr
n the secret society feature iB concerned,
and the consequence is that the auxiliary
societies ot the People's and Republican
parties are being constantly recruited by
A Great Love for Mystery.
The Kansas love for mystery is intense.
The State i made up of "joiners." Every
kind of secret soe'ety prospers in the Sun
flower btate, and. when politics is added,
there is n fascination about it all which is
irresistible There is only one hope for the
voters w ho are out, and that is to get the
various secret organizations within the
eame parties to fighting.
The Knights and Ladies of America, tho
very latest in the way of political mysteries,
is destined to be a very popular institution.
It is organized on the principle that sweet
hearts and wi es can keep Republicans out
of the Alliance ranks or convert them after
thev have gone o er.
Senator Norton, of Cherokee county, who
organized the order, made a pilgrimage to
Topeka a few daj s ago to confer with the
Knights of Reciprocity in regard to uniting
the two Republican societies. "We have
organized on the right theory," explained
Senator Norton. "When We want to make
a Republican out of a young farmer who has
joined the Alliance we first
Induce His Sweetheart to Join
the order We present the social side of
llie onranization to the wife of some Rcpub-lir-in
who is lukewarm and through hr
reaeh the husband. That is the idea, and if
th Knights of Reciprocity accomplish any
thing they must guard well the ladies."
But the Knights of Reciprocity gave
Senator Norton but little encouragement,
and the two Republican societies will have
to w ork separately.
The greatest fear of the People's party
leaders is that the Citizens' Industrial Alli
ance which it has fostered will disrupt the
parent organization. There are two auxil
iary societies in the People's party with
names almost identical, and it is the jeal
ousies between them which have caused all
the trouble. The Citizens' Alliance was
organized at the Ocal convention by Ralph
Beaumont, its jfresent Secretary, and was
indorsed by the Farmers' Alliance at that
The Citizens' Industrial Alliance was
organized in Topeka by the Citizens' Alliance
lenders of Kansas the day Senator Ingalls
was defeated. It was called a national or
ganization and the only man present from
without the State, T. W. Gilruth, of Kansas
Cm, was elected President. But little
attention was paid to the organization of the
order at that time because of the great in
terest in the Senatorial election. But the
men who were given control builded wisely
and strong
The Jealousy of Two Orders.
The Kansas love for mystery was fed by
grips, signs, passwords and symbols. There
was a hidden meaning In everything, and
the order grew and grew until it got too big
to be handled by the men whom it was orig
mallv organi7ed to assist. But in the mean
time the Citizens Alliance, under Ralph
Beaumont, had also grown, and the two or
ders became jealous of each other.
The People's party leaders at Cincinnati
were able to control the order formed at
Ocala, which was non-secret, bnt the secret
society formed in Topeka defied them to do
Get their
. mnf
their worst. Those who were not in the
order did not know how to proceed in the
matter of coercion, and the members-from
the nature of their oaths, conld not. Beau
mont, Secretarv of the non-secret order, and
Gilruth, President of the secret society,
had a newspaper fight, and the leaders, who
hadnp to that time, been able to get all the
warring factions together, concluded that it
was high time that something was being
Beaumont was perfectly willing to com
promise, and submitted a proposition in
which he agreed to resign with all the other
officers of his order if Gilruth, Rightmire
and the five trustees of tho Citizens' Indus
trial Alliance would also resign. The Peo
ple's party leaders were delighted, and it
was whispered around that everything was
Not of the Resigning Kind.
But the leaders did not know Messrs,
Gilruth and Rightmire. These gentlemen
laughed at the idea of nresentinc their res
ignations, and stated that they' could not do
it even if they wanted to. there was an
other consultation of the leaden, and to
help the matter along Mr. Beaumont came
forward with another proposition. He
agreed to go in with Rightmire and issue a
joint address to the petfple in which they
should advise those wishing to take the
secret work to join the Citizens' Industrial
Alliance, and those wishing the open work
to join the Citizens Alliance But this
proposition also fell through, and the con
vention adjourned with discord rankling in
the breasts of the brothers.
The impression prevails among the
farmers that the Citizens' Industrial Alli
ance is nothing but a money making insti
tution, and its rapid growth, which they are
unable to check, is a continual source of
alarm. The Reform Press Association has
taken the matter in hand, and if it becomes
necessary the order will be publicly de
nounced. Notwithstanding the alleged
strength of the People's party in the cities
and towns through its auxiliary societies,
the recruits gained in this way are a con
tinned menace to the partv. and the Peocle's
party leaders admit that the experiment has
not been a success.
Neither Is He a Candidate for State Chair
man He Would Consider a Proposition,
However Senator Quay Laughs the
Story to Utter Scorn.
Philadelphia, June 10. Collector of
Customs X. V.Cooper took occasion to-day to
deny in vigorous terms the statement that
purported to come from Harrisburg, to the
effect that he had joined hands with C L.
Magee, of Pittsburg, as against Senator
Quay, and that he desired to again obtain
the position of Chairman of the Bepublican
State Committee. "I am not a candidate
for State Chairman, "said the Collector, when
asked about the matter; "and I know of no
circumstances under which I would be sug
gested for the place. Of course, if I felt it
my duty to accept it and the party de
manded that I should do so, I would con
sider a proposition to that end, but as such
circumstances do not exist, there is posi
tively nothing in the story of a combina
tion against Senator Quay, so far as lam
There is no truth in the alleged pros
pective assault on the State Committee ad
ministration that I know of. I haye no
knowledge of such a movement, nor do I
believe that it is contemplated. Of Ma
gee's intentions I know nothing, and I have
only to say that the whole story of the al
leged movement against Senator Quay has
no foundation in fact; that is so far as it con
nects me with the scheme. Tarn not in it."
Senator Quay left thecity on, the 3:20 ex
press this evening. 'He was bound for
Beaver. He was not at all worried over the
rumor of the alleged combination against
him, and when spoken to about it, laughed
and declined to talk seriously about it.
"Hnrrisburg," he said, "is a good place to
locate the foundation for such a story; es
pecially when there is nobody there compe
tent to talk on such matters. Every now
and then such a story is started, and it is
supposed to settle the political situation.
The whole business has been settled
definitely according to Tumor and report,
but no two accounts have been alike. The
fact is that where there is no political news,
somebody always has something ta say,
which is neither news nor fact."

A State Ticket Nominated and the People's
Party Denounced.
Des Moines, June 10. The Prohibition
State Convention met here this morning.
About E0 counties of the 99 were repre
sented by about ISO delegates. The morn
ing session was opened with an address by
Temporary Chairman D. B. Tnrney. He
asserted that with the liquor vote divided
between the Democratic, Republican and
People's parties, the Prohibitionists would
unite the vote of the anti-liquor men and
carry the State.
The com ention adopted a platrorm and
nominated a full State ticket. The plat
form adopted is long and complicated. It
favors straight-out prohibition; free and un
limited coinage of silver; the Australian
ballot reforms; a State constabulary to en
force prohibition, and the immediate abol
ishment of the whole United States inter
nal revenue system, since its operation is to
encourage, by recognizing, the liquor traffic.
The candidates nominated are as follows:
Governor, Isaac T. Gibson, Salem; Lieuten
ant Governor, J. G. Little, Perry; Superin
tendent of Public Instruction, Mrs. M. H.
Dunham, Burlington; Railroad Commis
sioner, C T. Hart, Coyne; Supreme Judge,
D. B. Turney, Bennett The action of the
People's party in dodging the prohibitory
issue, both in the Cincinnati and DesMoines
platforms, was commented 'upon and de
The Convention Co-Operates With the
National Alliance.
La Ceosse, June 10. At this afternoon's
session of the State Alliance convention a
lengthy set of resolutions were unanimously
adopted. They favor a system of taxation
that will not favor one class at the expense
of another; the free coinage of silver and
the abolition of national banks; that the
Government should loan money to the citi
zens, with certain prudent restrictions, on
real estate security.
They demand the prohibition of gambling
on Boards of Trade; favor the Government
control of telegraph and railroads,- the elec
tion of President, Vice President and Sen
ators by a direct vote of the people; prohibi
tion of non-resident alien ownership of land;
establishment of Postal Savings Banks;
that the towns, cities and illages where
license is granted for the sale of linnnr
compelled to pay all the expenses of prose
cution, including the expense of the de
fense now allowed under the present laws.
The resolutions also favor woman suffrage
and provide for the admission to the Alli
ance wives and daughters of members with
equal privileges and without fees.
So Sajs Governor 1'rancls, and He Cer
tainly Ought to Know.
New Yonic, June 10. Governor D. R,
Francis, of Missouri, is in the city. "Mis
souri is as strongly for Cleveland now as
it always has been," he said. "To be sure,
we wanted free coinage, but the neonle be
lieve that will come in time. They believe J
the tanffquestion will be the DrinciDal is-
sue in the next national campaign. The
Sarty is united on that Missouri believes
i Cleveland on this Issue."
Governor Francis said the Fanners Alli
ance in Missouri was strong, as a farmers'
organization, bnt he called attention to the
fact that the State organization sent no
delegates to the convention at Cincinnati
AfewMissourians were in that gathering,
but they went there of their own accord
and not as State delegates) The leaders of
the organization in the State were generally
of the belief that they would obtain what
they needed more certainly through the
Democratic party than by branching out as
a separate party.
None Other Can Bo It, According to John
M. Langston He Says a Free Ballot
Will Be tho Great Issue The President
Sound on It.
Washington, June .10. Hon. John M
Langston, of Virginia, was in the city to
day and gave to some friends quite a long
talk on the political situation, In which he
declared that the great question in the next
canvass is not going to be so much one of
tariff, or one of banks, or the extension of
American commerce or navigation, or the
adjustment of labor and industrial measures,
as this important question: "Shall the
American ballot in the interest of the Amer
ican people to sustain American citizenship,
advance American free institutions, be sus
tained by law, and its use be enforced
through the courts?" The man who repre
sents this idea of law as the shield of the
American ballot is to be the man who shall
be elected to the Presidency of the United
States to carry out this idea.
"We are no longer," asserted Mr. Langs
ton, "debating the negro question. There
are no whites and no blacks in connection
with this question. There is no North and
no South. Now, the question naturally
arises, what man among the great statesmen
of our country represents in the highest,
the broadest and the deepest and the best
sense this great question. On this subject
there is jnst one single man that has been
a little ahead of all the others, and his
record on this question will be brought out
fully when we come to consider the ques
tion as to who shall be nominated by the
Republicans to run against Grover Cleve

"The man of whom I speak is none other
than the President of the "United States,
Benjamin Harrison, who. in his trip across
the continent, has at least demonstrated
two things: That he is a popular man; that
he is an able man, and his recent utterances,
as well as his former, are proof positive that
he has the character that I have represented
a strong man in popular faVor, a judicious
and wise statesman, a profound and far
seeing lawyer, understanding all of our in
stitutions, knowing well the value of our
ballot, and comprehending the importance

The latest Sensation in the Notorious
Baccarat Scandal.
A Beautiful American Heiress Still Believes
Him Innocent.
LoNDOif, June 10. Cupid took a hand in
the card scandal to-day, and hearts were
decidedly trumps, although diamonds occu
pied a prominent position. The villain or
victim, as the case may be, of the now no
torious baccarat game, was married to-day
to a beautiful American heiress, who has
remained faithful to him through all, and
believes hftn innocent. The wedding was
rather a quiet one, but there was no con
cealment about it, and it- was graced by the
presence of nobility.
So well was the secret of Sir William's
intended marriage kept that at 10 o'clock
this morning there were no signs about the
Holy Trinity Church at Chelsea that any
such ceremony was to be performed there
to-day. "At 10:20 A. M. a plain, ordinary
cab drove up to the church gates, and from
it alighted the much-talked-of plaintiff in
the famous baccarat suit, Sfr William
Gordon-Cnmming was accompanied by hk
best man, Major vesey Dawson. Once in
side the building Sir Willjam and the
Maior walked tin the aisle adioininethe
morning chapel, in which it was arranged
that the marriage ceremony should take
No Very Elaborate Preparations.
The sole ocoupants of Holy Trinity even
at this hour were three carpenters engaged
in some apparently much needed repairs to
the building. Sir William and his friend
stood chatting together for a minute or so
inside the morning chapel and then their at
tention was attracted to two or three ladies
who had quietly entered the church and sat
down near the two gentlemen.
A minute or so later a carriage drove up
to the church and from it alighted Miss
Florence Garner, Lord and Lady Middleton
and a young lady, who was understood to be
the bride's sister, Mrs. Randolph. The
bride walked smilingly toward the bride
groom, who advanced to meet her. There
were no bridemalds, but instead Miss Gar
ner was chaperoned by Lady Middleton.
Soon after the arrival of the bride and her
friends the Rsv. Dr. Eyton, who was to
officiate at the marriage service, emerged
from the vestry and the ceremonies com
menced. The first portion ot the service.
was celebrated at the altar steps and the
second part at the communion table.
A Wedding Breakfast and a Tonr.
Both the bride and the bridegroom made
the usual responses In clear and audible
voices. At the conclusion of the services
the bridal party was conveyed to the Mid
dleton mansion, and after the wedding
breakfast Sir William Gordon-Cumming
and his bride left London for Middleton's
country seat, Wellaton House, Nottingham,
where they will pass a few days previous to
continuing their journey to Altyre, Sir
William's seat in Scotland, where tney will
In an interview today Sir William Gordon-Cumming
said that he had nothing to
add to what he had said in the witness box.
The popular opinion., of. the verdict, he
added, was shown by the- demonstrations in
court. Sir William refused to sar ahvthinir
in-regard to the comments of .tho newspat L
perirupdn the case just' decided, say ing that T
tne newspapers were at perfect liberty to
say what they pleased. Yhen the verdict
was pronounced against him, Sir William
again offered to cancel his engagement to
Miss Garner, but that ladyj believing in his
innocenqe, would not hear to such a thing,
and insisted that the marriage should take
place to-day. It is expected that Sir
William and his wife will visit the United
States in the autumn.
Lady Gordon-Camming is the eldest
daughter of the late Theodore William
Garner, of New York, who was drowned in
July, 1876, with his wife, through the cap
sizing of Mr. Garner's yacht, Mohawk.
Tho Preachers' and the Queen.
At the Primitive Methodist Conference,
now being held at Northampton, several of
the speakers denounced the Prince of Wales
for the share he took in the baccarat scandal.
In addition some of the speakers urge that
the Prince of Wales should not be allowed
to succeed to the throne unless he abandons
gambling. The Conference will consider
to-morrow' some resolutions upon this sub
ject which will be presented to it.
An account of the court proceedings was
telegraphed each night to the Queen, who
!b now at Balmoral Castle, in Scotland, and
Her Majesty is said to have expressed her
displeasure in suoh strong terms that it is
asserted it would no be surprising if
the Court of Queens Bench revelations were
the cause of Lord Coventry's resigning his
office as Master of Her Majesty's Buck-
hounds or timet ot tne itoyai iiunt, lor
which office the Earl draws an annual salary
of $7,600. The Queen does not attempt to
conceal the fact that she is angry with
everyone connected with the baccarat
scandal, and the effects of the royal displeas
ure may yet be felt in several quarters.
At Ascot yesterday the Prince of Wales
was nervous until after he received the dis
patch announcing the Wilsons' victory. So
soon as he was in possession of the result of
the jury's deliberations the Prince fairly
beamed upon his friends and relatives, tak
ing no pains to conceal the pleasure he felt
at the result 6f the verdict.
Radical Opinions Cause a Sensation.
The denunciation of the Prince of
Wales by the newspapers, especially
by the Tory press, has caused a
tremendous sensation throughout Great
Britain, and it is freely asserted that the
revelations made during the trial of the bac
carat suit in court are judged to have done
more to imperil themonarchy than anyevent
which has taken place for many years past
in England. The flat assertion made by the
Daily ChroiMcU to the effect that until the
Prince of Wales on oath swears, as "his
confederates" did, that he, the Prince, did
not violate the solemn pledge he gave to Sir
WiUiam Gordon-Cumming, he, the heir ap
parent, rests under an imputation of dis
honor quite as shameful as that which the
jury put upon Sir William Gordon-Cumming.
The Star to-day, under the heading of
'.'Royalty at the Stake," Bays that the Prince
of Wales is the male head of his race. The
women of his house are virtuous, self
restrained and reliant The English people
throughout the world want the men to be
more like the women of this royal line,
adding: "This is a proud couhtryand the
man who aspires to represent Englishmen
must keep everything about him Iresh and
bright, and must be exceedingly jealous of
his reputation, and most not be known as a
baccarat banker and as a specialist in
gaming counters."
SirWilliom Gordon-Camming has resigned
from all the clubs of which he was a mem
ber. His costs in the suit were $25,000. He
told a friend to-day that it was not the ladv
generally mentioned, but another lady well
known in society who was the principal
factor in the betrayal of the card secret.

A Little Five-Year-Old Girl Found
ribly Mutilated.
Leeds, June 10. Barbara Waterhouse,
aged 5 years, a quarryman'g daughter,
mysteriously disappeared from home last
Saturday. At midnight last night the
police discovered her body wrapped in a
bundle, lvincr in the street, close to tha
.Town Hall
The abdomen had been ripped open so
that the intestines protruded, and the legs
and arms had been almost severed from the
body and were covered with deep gashes.

Two Leading New England Iron Companies
Will Pool Their Issues.
Boston, June 10. The Boston represent
atives of big iron and steel houses are much
interested in a rumor current to he effect
that a consolidation of two of the largest
firms had been effected. If such is the fact
it is not yet known to the trade. Charles C.
Lounge said that the iron trade had been
prostrated for the" past six months by a com
stant and gradual declining of prices, and
that its present stagnation is due to a lack of
stability in prices and a want of confidence
among buyers as to whether the schedule
had reached bottom. The two concerns in
Ner, England which would be the parties to
such a combination if one were formed, he
said, would be the 'Tremont Nail Company,
of West Wareham, Mass., and the Nashua
Iron and Steel Company, of Nashua, N. H.
There maybe some sort of a combination
similar to the Atlas Lock Corporation, which
has now been in successful operation for
four weeks, or there may be a joining of in
terests of the tack plate makers. In this in
dustry New England leads the country and
the movement of the five large houses in
this line is regarded in the trade as a wise
measure, serving to check an unhealthy
competition. In a period of less than eight
years there have been forced out of business

Twenty-Five More Students Are Ar

.Thej Propose to Find Out Why They Cant
Keep Their Boozed
Cambridge, Mass., June 10. It's get
ting to be quite a thing now for Harvard
students to be arraigned before Judge San
ger as defendants in liquor complaints, and
therefore it did Tioi occasion much surprise
when the members of aristocratic Zeta Psi
Club held a reception in court to-day, in re
sponse tb invitations sent ont by the genial
Jndge, but affairs took a little different turn

as they want to.
he Students Show Fight
There were 25 student prisoners in court
to-day and ten times as many fellow
students, who crowded into the court room
in order to see the sport, for the rumor had
gone abroad that a tight was on hand. The
students appeared with counsel, Mr. W. K.
Blodgett, Jr., and the latter a9ked for a Con
tinuance. He pleaded not guilty for his
clients, collectively, but Judge Sanger
would not consent to such a nroceedintr.
He demanded" a roU call, to see if all were
present, and the names of some of the first

a thin voice arose from a rear seat and

This ended the exercises, as far as Zeta
Psi was concerned. But everybody waited
for the next act. Charles L. Emerson and
Ralph L. Wetmore, of the Alpha Delta Phi
Club, were summoned before the Judge to
take their dose of judiciary medicine. Both
were charged with assisting in keeping a
liquor nuisance in tne clubroom of the
Alpha Delta Phi. Emerson pleaded
guilty and was also fined 65, which he
paid. Wetmore pleaded not guilty 'and
asked for an immediate hearing. He was
accommodated, altnougn sergeant Fullen,
who had charge of the raid, looked a little
surprised. He detailed the raid on the club
last week, and claimed that Wetmore was a
member of that association. Among the
things which he captured was a printed list
of members. Wetmore's name had been,
written in, not printed.
Wetmore Wins an Acquittal.
Wetmore next took the stand and testi
fied: "I am not an active member of the
club, Tour Honor, and have no rights in its
management. Heft it two years ago and
am accorded the privilege of the house
simply as a member of the fraternity. I
would be given the same privileges at Am
herst, rhave no more rights there than
have Joseph Choate, of New York, or
Francis Peabody. I am a member of the
fraternity and that is all."
Judge Sanger, after hearing Wetmore's
evidence, concluded that he was not tech
nically assisting in the nuisance and
ordered him to be discharged. As
he went forth in the midst of
a number of students he was
almost shaken to pieces with congratula
tions. This was the first victory for a
Harvard student before the court and it will
give the batch that la to come up June 17 a
ray of hope and a cue for defense. While
the students were in court and during the
proceedings in their cases, an artist was
busily engaged sketching the scene, which
it is understood is to appear in the Lampoon,
The major part of those arraigned this
morning are seniors, and the whole affair is
particularly annoying, coming as it does on
the eve of olass day, when all their energies
and thoughts are so engrossed in preparing
for that day of days to the graduates.

It is stated he will not leave Europe, but

An Item Relating to Compulsory Education
Disapproved Junketing Trips Receive
Their Death Blow The Constitutional
Convention Hill Is Safe From a Veto.
Habbisbitro, June 10. Governor Patti
son hai disapproved an item in the general
appropriation hill relating to the compul
sory education act, because he has decided
to veto the latter bill. As the Governor
did not disapprove the item in the general
appropriation bill (which is now a law) for
stationery, etc., for the proposed constitu
tional convention, it is almost certain that
he will attach his signature to the bill pro
viding for a convention if a majority of
the people at the next election should vote
in favor of it. It is highly probable that
the convention will have legal life breathed
into it before the close of another week.
The aot will give the Republicans about 30
majority in the convention, but its probable
partisan complexion wiU not be sufficiently

the space that that name has occupied in
the Covenanter communion in this neigh

will at once recognize what this means, of
itself, to say nothing of ultimate results.
The vote on the resolutions was ths
first order of the day, and the

needed assurance of conscience as well as
of superiority of numbers to make them

An Amendment Pnt and Carried.
Elder W. F. Miller offered an amendment
to the first clause of the resolutions offered

Pittsburg Presbytery was 93 ayes to 37

was apparent ere long and Rev. John Teaz,
a missionary at Selina, Ala., said he could
no longer remain in the church and asked
the Synod to request his Presbytery to

the proper committee.
