Manhattan, Riley county." It was real
pleasure to attend this convention com
pcead of Riley county yeomanry men
fullcf pluck and energy; men deter
mined to bring Riley county into line
for the Populist party; men who cheer
fully give of their time and means to
support our cause; men who are not
afraid to stand up and be counted for
such legislators as John Davis and for
the noblest governor Kansas ever had,
L. D. ILewellirg. The convention in
dorsed the following resolutions, elected
their delegates, nominated a county
ticket and then listened to one of the
very best campaign speakers in the
state. J. M. Senter. Mr. Senter is a
young man, has always lived and worked
on a farm, but for all that ha is as well
coated on reform work, and the condi-
. tions of the working people in this and
other countries as any man can well be.
We predict he will be heard with telling
effect in every county in the state this
First Indorsed the Omaha platform.
Second Indorsed John Davis.
Third Indorsed Governor Lewelling.
Fourth Indorsed a service pension
Fifth Indorsed the rigid enforce
ment of all laws.
Sixth Indorsed woman suffrage.
Seventh Invited all persons to join
with them to dethrone the money power.
Eighth Condemned the un-Christian
un-American manner in which Ameri
onn nHizana are and have bean
treated at Washington.
Ninth Resolved to keep off the grass.
T. B. Miller moved that nominations
of county officers be preceded by an in
formal ballot which was carried.
The convention then proceeded to
nominate the following strong ticket
Representative Ed Secreat.
Probate Judge P. C. Helder.
County Superintendent Miss Callie

The third convention was in Shawnee
county at Topeka. This convention was
was unlike any convention we ever at
tended. Harmony did not reign su-
nreme by a long ways. It might have
done so had it not been for some men
who were not delegates crowded them
selves to the front, and exploded a lot
of accumulated eaa that had been gath
erinron their diaphrams for the past
5ffhtm months. Here for the first
tlmain the sixty-six counties we have
m'flitAd in tha cast three months have
we heard anything about fusion. We
don't believe there is a Populist in ine
state of Kansas, in office or out of office,
who wants, or talks or, thinks of fusion,
. and whv these few misguided, misin
formed otherwise good Populists make
inch a howl about nothing is beyona
my comprehension. O. W. Hppse.

The Arena Publishing company is
f nrnishinsr a ere at many valuable oontn
buttons to the literature of the times.
Among thoce of recent date we acknowl
edge receint of the following:
m "The Unofficial Patriot" A story
of the period just preceding and during
the war. by Helen Gardner. The un
official patriot la a character, always un
popular in his day, who disregards pub-
ic sentiment and acts from a high sense
of duty. This leads him sometimes cutj
side the strict provisions of law. The
acts of such patriots, though cot ap
proved in their day, are always com
mended by after generations. The story
is written in tha authors boat style, and
its moral may be applied to the unoffi
cial and unpopular patriots of the pres

A story of the struggles and triumphs
of a noble life, cloudad by poverty, and
beset by temptations. A story of thril
ling interest, by Mrs. S. M. IL Gardner,
(3) "Our Money Wars," by Samuel
Leavitt. This is an historical work, re
viewing briefly the various struggles of
the bankers and money-changers of the
world to control the people's money, and
the vicious methods by which they have
been enabled, so ....largely..to succeed. It
is one of the hand-books of ready refer
ence, valuable in the present contest.
(Q "A Better Financial System," by
Georse C Ward. This is more of a philo
sophical treatise, and still it partakes,
also, of the character of a hand-book
from its many facta concisely stated and
arranzed under appropriate heads for
ready reference. Some idea of the work
may be gained from the subjects of the
chapters, which are as follows:
1. The (Omaha; Demands Analyzed.
3. The Panic of 1893. '
4. Lack of Confidence.
5. The Volume of Money.
7. The Kind of Money.
8. The Rata of Interest
9. The Plan in Practice.

Case No. 16386.
Kansas Banks and Paternal Politics.
A report from Washington says: "Sec
retary Carlisle has increased the Lieaven
worth National bank's United States de
pository from 150,000 to $100,000. Ed A.
Carroll, cashier of the bank, who Has
been in Washington for s1 days, has
returned with the satisfactory news, ana
his aDuearance here was accordingly ac
counted for. The story which this in
crease recalls tells of a bank rivalry in
which more or less politics of the Kan
sas variety has been mixed.
"The First National bank, of Leaven
worth, was for years the only United
States dsDOSitory in that town, but dur
ing Cleveland's first administration the
Leavenworth National was also desig
nated: and both banks were authorized
to hold a similar amount, $150,000. E
N. Morrill, the president of the Leaven
worth National, was an ardent republi
can, and when Harrison succeeded
Claveknd and Foster became secretary
of the treasury, the Leavenworth Na
tional bank was cut off, and the First
National became the only United States
depository in the city. Later, Secretary
Foster authorized the Leavenworth aa
depository for 150,000. Te-day Secretary
Carlisle conoluded to equalize matters,
and both banks were authorized as
United States depositories for $100,000.
"Mr. Carroll has made arrangements
in New York for the purchase of bonds
to deposit with the secretary of the
