The Populist State Convention will meet at Topeka June 24. The beef trust continues to do business, regardless of the pros' editions. President Palma of Cuba was inaugurated Tuesday, May 20, as first president of the Repub lic of Cuba. D. R. Anthony, editor of The Leavenworth Times, is a prom inent candidate for Commander of the Kansas G. A. R. Encamp ment. Senator Harris, of Kansas, is one of the ablest men in the Sen ate. He is a true representative of the people and will be return ed to that body if there is a fus ion Legislature.. Where would Cuban reciproci ty laeded, had it not been for the Democrats and Populists in Con gress? This is one time they stood by the President, but the President happened to be right. We notice that The American Book Co. has got its graft on the Kansas School Text Book Com mission and secured the cream of the contracts for furnishing school books in this state. This company had a strong lobby of its representatives in Topeka last week. Crane & Co. have in slituted proceedings to annul their contracts. If the people of Kansas want these gigantic cor porations shut out 'from doing business in the state they must elect a fusion legislature. The Populist Legislature of 1897 made the corporations hop to such an extent that they spend unlimited amounts todef eat them lor re-election. Row Between Ranchmen and Farm- era In Northwest Kansas. Special from At wood, Ks., to Wichita Beacon. The settlers of this section of Kansas are all wrought up over the encoachment of big cattle ranches, and an armed outbreak is threatened. The trouble has already reached such a stage that armed companies of settlers are riding the country looking for owners of the big ranches, and it is likely the state militia will have to be called out to pre serve order. In the early days of northwestern Kansas thous ands of settlers came here and took homesteads. Many of them left after the boom collapsed but a good per cent remained in and "proved up." About fiye years ago big cattlemen from other sec tions began to drift in here and establish ranches.' They grad ually bought up lands, until to day nearly all the lands in Raw lins and Cheyenne counties and much in northwestern Thomas and northeastern Sherman court ties have been acquired. In making their purchases the ranchmen always off ered settlers good prices for their farms, im orovements and all. If the set tlers refused to sell, then the ranchmen would buy all the land surrounding them and run fences around their farms. This shut the farmers out from the adjoin ing range, which they had used for years, unmolested and with out cost. The ranchmen have been increasing their holdings so rapidly during the past twoyears that the settlers have become en raged. They believe that it has reached a point now where they must fight and they are getting ready to do so. They have done some skirmishingalready. They will not resort to law, but to arms. Within the past month enough arms and ammunition have been shipped into this section to equip a good sized army. Secret or ganizations have been effected by the settlers in the various com munities and arms and ammuni tion have been issued to each member. The ranchmen them selves at first issued an order that none of their employes should go armed. But the con dition is such now that the order has not only been reached, but the ranchmen themselves have supplied their men with arms. Nearley every broncho buster and settler in this section now goes armed to the teeth and troubly cannot long be averted. The company of settlers near this place is composed of over 100 men all used to frontier life. and men who. were never known to show the white feather in a tight. The cowboys employed by the ranchmen are also "wild and wooly." It looked as though the war would open on the C. P. Dewey ranch a few days ago. Mr. Dew ey is a Chicago capitalist, who has become interested in the ranch business. He owns two ranches in Kansas. One of 12, 000 acres is located near Manhat tan, Kansas. Mr. Dewey spends a considerable portion of his time there during the summer. He entertains big crowds of eastern friends there. In the winter he stays in Chicago. The other Dewey ranch is located in Raw lins, Sherman and Cheyenne counties. It contains over 100, 000 acres and is being enlarged as fast as Mr. Dewey can buy adjoining land. If he can't buy every quarter that he wants, he simply buys the land around it and then fences it in. However, he always offers first to give the settler a fair price for his claim When the Siegcl-Sanders Com mission Co., of Kansas City, went to pieces, Frank Rockefel ler took the Siegel-Sanders ranch here. It is compbsed of about sixteen sections of land. The Rockefeller ranch wasin Dewey's way and he offered to buy it, Rockefeller refused to sell, so Dewey proceeded to buy up all the land surrounding it and fenc ed in Rockefellers ranch. Dewey gave all the settlers whom he surrounded the right to graze their cattle in his pas ture along with his cattle. "Turn your cattle in and let them eat all of my grass they want," was the way he put it to the settlers, but the other cattle men were not so generous, and for self-preservation the settlers claimed they would have to de cline Dewey's offer and organize a fight on Dewey as well as the rest. They asserted that it was life or death with them; that the encoachment of ranchmen would ruin them and that the only al ternative left them was to resort to force. As statedalready, the war al most opened on the Dewey ranch the other day. Dewey had just purchased laud surrounding the farm of a settler and pat a gang of men out to fence in the set tler's quarter. A company of settlers, heavily armed, rode up and destroyed what fence the gang had built, and forced Dew ey's men to leave. That some killing did not take place is re garded as remarkable.' If Dew ey were the only ranchman in here, the settlers would have no trouble. Tbey could get along with him. But there are others, Dewey being the largest one, is now the object of attack. The peace officers of this sec tion are watching the matter closely, and if the threatened in surrection getstoo large for them to handle they will ask the gover nor to send a couple of compan ies of militia here to restore or der. Our Correspondents. EAST SIDE ITEMS. Well, owing to the rush of work we did not get in last week for which sin of omission we humbly beg pardon.
