The ' plan of Democratic members of congress to adjourn the extra session by next Saturday, or Tuesday at the latest, in order to allow members to make mileage raid on tbe treasury to tbe amount. of 9226,000, Is up in the air. No two Democrats of eith er house have the same idea on the subject. While the great majority of the Democrats want their mileage al lowance, they fear a country-wide criticism of the plan to end' the session at a time when the Mexican situation is grave and the calendars of both houses are congested with public business which has, to date, failed of enactment. Despite denials -from Democratic leaders ln close touch with the white house, it Is known the ., president has been consulted on adjournment and that as late as yesterday he gave 'his consent to the plan.

Progressive party leaders from every county In Kansas are coming to Topeka Thurs day, November 20 to talk over their plans for the 1914 campaign, ac cording to announcement made ln Wichita last night by William Allen White, Progressive national com mitteeman for Kansas. The 1914 campaign will be .thoroughly out lined at the Topeka meeting, White says, and it Is probable that an nouncement of a full set of candi dates for state and congressional offices will be made at the meeting. As for the state and congressional tickets, the Progressives 'plan to of fer candidates for every office. They have even agreed that they will op pose State Treasurer Earl Akert, who fought and bled for the Roose velt cause" last' year bu't' Vas refused to leave the Republican party. J. H. Livermore of Olathe, a reformed Democrat, will probably be Akers' opponent Lieutenant Governor Sheffield Ingalls of Atchison will most prob ably be the Progressive gubernator ial candidate. He has declared flat ly for the new party and recently campaigned in New Jersey ln be half of Progressive gubernatorial and congressional candidates. Each congressional district, White) contends, will be the scene, of battle with the Progressive rparty fighting for, first place. J. L. Brady baa already declared' his' candidacy for congress on the Progressive ticket in he Second district and it is understood that George E. Tucker will be the Progressive candidate in the Fourth. Usless Senator Brlstow should return to the ' Republican party and Murdock crowded into the United States senatorial race, the Wichita editor will seek reelection to congress as a Progreeslve, It is claimed.' Some definite ' statement as to the attitude which Senator Brlstow will assume, will probably be made by White at the Topeka gathering. White has always con tended that Brlstow would be a candidate on the Progressive ticket and would make his announcement "when the time comes." The Topeka conference will be presided over by V. S. Sartin ' of Kansas City, state chairman of the. Progressive party. TRITCH RETAINS RIGHT TO HOLD CLAIM NO. 1 Moberly, Mo., Nov. 14. Marvin Tritch, winner of first choice in the North Platte government reserva tion land drawing two weeks ago, denies that he has been disqualified and will lose his claim.
