A TODR OF CONQUEST.
GENERAL WEAVER'S TRIP TO THE PACIFIC COAST GRAPHICALLY DESCRIBED BY HIMSELF. The Eight SUtes Visited are Absolutely Sure for the People's Party In Sovember. General Weaver wrote the following reportof his conquering trip to the Faciflc coast for his paper, the Iowa Tribune. It shows a wonderful awak ening of sentiment and gives new en couragement to the patriots who are battling for the right. California is a new acquisition to our rapidly grow ing column. It is one of the worst monopoly ridden states in the union and being so far from the other states, she is bled to death by extortions. There is no disguising the rapid de velopment of the People's party there. Gen. Weaver wrote as follows: "We commenced at Denver on the 28th of July and remained in Colo rado eight days visiting nearly all the principal centers of population. Pub lic sentiment is completely revolu tionized and the old parties have but few adherents in that state. Three out of every four votes will be cast for the national ticket of the People's party. Public sentiment in our favor is simply overwhelming and irresist ible and has swept within its folds all classes of people. From Colorado we proceeded to Nevada. Public senti ment is practically unanimous in that state. Fully ninety-six oer cent of the people are in our favor and there will be but one electoral ticket before the people. We were compelled to speak eight times in one day while in Nevada. We touched at all the prin cipal points in the state, holding a night meeting at Reno, which was addressed by Senator Stewart and other leading lights of the state, in addition to the speeches made by Mrs. Lease and myself. Our next appoint ment was at Los Angeles, Cal., where the meeting numbered from seven to nine thousand people assembled from every part of southern California. At this meeting began to be manifest the peculiar psychological phenomena which characterized the early Repub lican meetings in 1860. The people are deeply in earnest, and their devo tion to the cause partakes largely of religious phenomena. Their convic tions of right and justice have been awakened and the7 are ready to make any sacrifice necessary to secure vic tory. The people travel hundreds of miies to attend these meetings, often driving a hundred miles in- their wag ons across the dusty and parched country. Our next meeting in Cali ' fornia was at Fresno, where we met fully six thousand people at an open air meeting. The following day we were at Oakland, on the opposite side of the bay from San Francisco, where we held a meeting four to five thousand strong in the afternoon. At night we addressed a meeting in Mechanics Pavilion in San Francisco; the seating capacity of the building is 12,000 and it was crowded to Its ut most capacity. The trades' unions of that city have unanimously resolved to support the People's party candi dates, which alone means fully 12,000 votes. The next night we spoke at Sacramento, to the largest audience that has assembled in that city for many years. We took the train from San Francisco to Portland, Oregon, where we held two meetings, one in the afternoon, composed of farmers three thousand strong, and another at night which could only be counted by acres. Governor Pennoyer was called away on official business, but he wrote me a letter, of which the following is a copy: roHTLAXD, Ore., Aug. 11, 1S02. Genera! J. B. Weaver. Portland. Oregon. -Mr Dbab Gk.nkkal: Official business will rail me to Salem the day you speak In Port land. I write this to show you that I am with you In the fight, heart and soul. Unless I am greatly disappointed I shall soon speak In your behalf before a larger audience than any that could be feathered at Portland. Give my regards to your wife. Very Respectfully. Sylvester Pexhoyer. y ''From Portia nd we proceeded north to Tacoma and Seattle. We expected simply to meet a few friends at Ta coma, but to our surprise we were met by a crowd of 5,000 people, and as ihey rushed up the hill cheering and swinging their hats and running at the top of their speed, Mrs. Lease re marked, 'This rivals Carlyle's descrip tion of the storming of the Bastile.' The enthusiasm of the meeting baffles description. We left Tacoma at 6 and arrived at Seattle at 8 o'clock, and we were met by an innumerable crowd of enthusiastic people which filled the plaza and the streets lead ing to if to an extent that made it almost dangerous to alight from the cars. It was with great difficulty that we reached our carriages and were finally driven to the place of speaking. Two meetings were held at the same time, one addressed by Mrs. Lease and one by myself. After each had spoken an hour we alter nated, so as to reach all the people. We called it exchanging pulpits and this had to be done almost every day. "Our next meeting was at Spokane and was an immense success. From V thence we proceeded to Helena and Butte. These meetings In Montana People's VOL. III. were overwhelming and exceeded any thing ever held in the state. We held three meetinsrs in Butte, one in the afternoon and two at night. The meeting in the opera house was crowded almost to suffocation and the meeting out of doors covered about two acres, solidly packed with people. We each spoke an hour and exchang ed audiences and spoke again for fully one hour. From Butte we proceeded to Cheyenne, stopping for short speeches at railway stations through Idaho and Wyoming. The Cheyenne meeting was the largest ever held in Wyoming and was characterized by the usual enthusiasm which has been met with all along the line. Every where the people gathered at the de pots and cheered us on our way. They covered us with floral tributes and crowded our car with refresh ments and manifested their approval of our mission in every possible way. You may set down tlie whole group visited, consisting of eight states, as absolutely certain for the People's party national ticket. "I was accompanied on the tour by Mrs. Weaver, Mrs. Mary E. Lease, Hon. V. 0. Strickler and wife, Oma ha, and Capt. C. A. Powers, of Terre Haute, Ind. Mrs. Lease spoke every day and as often as I did myself. She is an orator of marvelous power and a phenomenal psychological force. Her hold upon the laboring people is some thing wonderful. They almost wor ship her from one end of the country to the other. "I shall proceed south, leaviig this evening to deliver an address before the State Alliance at Moberly, Mo., and go from there to Arkansas and remain there until September 3. Mrs. Weaver and Mrs. Lease will then join me and we will proceed further south through Texas, Mississippi, Al abama, Georgia, Tennessee, the Caro linas and Virginias, reserving the last twenty-five days of the campaign for Iowa and the northwest. The outlook is all that could be desired. It is daily becoming manifest that the industrial people in every section of the country have resolved to quit voting for the trusts, the pools, the corporations and the money kings of Europe and America. They are constrained to believe that their interests are not in harmony with those of thecorporations,the Carmgies and the Finkerton thugs. The south is completely emancipated and will vote solidly for the People's party. "Our organization is national. It is as broad as the flag and as sound as the nation's heart. We will proceed south and contest every southern state with the nominees of the Chi cago convention with a better pros pect of carrying all of them than the Democrats have of carrying any one of them. We are in this fight to win and our column is in full dash. We feel that we are making a battle for a higher civilization a struggle de signed to guarantee to the humblest citizen of the reptblic all the rights and safeguards possessed by the mightiest citizen in the land and we are going to win." REPUBLICAN OPINION OF GEO. T.ANTHONY IN 1876. Topeka Advocate. We take the following from the proceedings of a mass convention of the Republicans of Leavenworth county, held in the city of Leaven worth on the evening of October 24, 18T6, said to be "the largest Republi can mass meeting held in Leaven worth since the war." The following resolutions were adopted: Resolved. By the Republicans of Leaven worth in mass meeting assembled: Believing in a strict adherence to our prom ises of reform within the party, we regard it as the duty of every Republican to cast his vote against corrupt and dishonest men wherever they may be found, and no matter on which ticket they may be nominated Knowing George T. Anthony, the Republi can nominee for governor of Kansas, to be a man who is corrupt, dishonest and unworthy of the confidence or support of the people of this state, we hereby utterly repudiate him as our candidate, and appeal to our fellow Republicans In all parts of Kansas to cast their ballots against him. The disgrace which has been brought upon our party and state within the last two years by the malfeasance of a dishonest state treasurer. Is a warning which we should heed, and we earnestly entreat the honest voters of Kansas to consider well the conse quences before they place In the governor- chair a man whose moral character is infin itely worse than ever Lappin's was. That a committee of Republicans, appoint ed by this meeting, be instructed to prepare an address to the voters of Kansas setting forth In full the reasons why this man should ?. .u ei'tf4 8veruor of this state, and that the affidavits, records and other proofs of his dishonest and corrupt practices be em bodied in the same, in order that the public may see and know that we are Justified In the course we are pursuing. ,Mh?Va.'1 1fl)ubiin Papers In Kansas which believe in reform within the party, and desire to save the state from further diigrae through dUhonest officials, be requested to publish these resolutions. The committee appointed in ac cordance with the above resolutions prepared and published an address, from which we take the following: In accordance with the foregoing resolu tions, we hereby lay before the public the ac companying statemeut of facts, establishing everything we affirm by documentary evi dence which cannot be questioned, aud for the whole of which we ask the careful and WELLINGTON, KANSAS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2,1892. unitnpassioned perusal of every Republican voter In Kansas. We are personally ac quainted with Geo. T, Anthony. We know his record as a citizen and a soldier. We know him to be a bad man. unworthy of con fluence and support of the people of Kansas, ind nnewhnwj election to the governorship would be a disgrace to the state. We believe his nomination by the Republican party was a great mistake. We know that the conven tion i which nominated him was deceived as to the character of the man. and we know that nearly all who are supporting him are deceived. But we have confidence In the Re publican party of Kaifcas. We believe that the love of honesty and purity Is strong enough In the hearts of the Republican masses of this state to prevent thera from snnnnrtlncr Hl-jl,,,,....,. s of his dishonesty h shown.' Therefore we suuiiui, me ionowing racts, not In passion, not in the heat of excitement, not prompted by personal malice, but coolly, dispassion ately, and In the Interest of the Republican party and Its immortal principles, to which we stand unswervingly attached: and we ap peal to our brother Republican throughout the state, in the name of the grand old party which rescued and preserved the country, and In the name of all the glorious memories which cluster around It, to read care fully the facts which are herewith presented, and to be not deceived Into casting their votes for a man whose election would be one of the sad dest calamities that could befall the party. Remember that defeat with honesty and purity Is a grand victory as compared to suc cess with dishonesty ond corruption. Re member the humiliation that we have suffer ed In the past through the conduct of corrupt officers, and elect no more doubtful men. We prefer the following list of charges against George T. Anthony, and for proofs sustaining each particular charge we refer to accompanying documents. The documents herewith presented convict George T. Anthony of First Defrauding his creditor, represent ing himself as solvent when he was bank rupt. Obtaining goods from Innocent parties through such false ivpresentatlon.sellfng the same and keeping the proceeds; for which an unsatisfied judgment now stands against him In the district court of Leavenworth county for over 110,000. (See document No. Second-Defrauding the school fund of the state of New York Dy falling to pay over money belonging to said fund, entrusted to his hand as a loan commissioner In said state, for which an unsatisfied judgment now stands against him and his sureties In the Supreme Court of the state of New York. (See docu ment No. 9.) Third Defrauding his creditors and evad ing the payment of his honest debt, by put ting all his property liable to execution In his wife's name. (See the records of Leaven worth county.) Fourth-False swearing., by pu' 'Irly stat ing under oath that the property l. Ills wife's name was bought with the proceeds of the sale of property, real and personal, which she owned before he married her. (See document No. S.) Fifth Holding the most lucrative federal office in Kausas for eight consecutive years, without devoting one cent of the salary thereof to the payment of his honest debts. (Refer to Geo. T. Anthony.) Sixth Cowardice as an officer In the army, and cruel and tyrauical treatment of the men under his command. (See document No. 4.) Seventh-Defrauding private soldiers In the union army by taking several thousands of dollars worth of funds belonging to the men of his company and appropriating the same to his own use. (See documents Nos. 2 and 4.) Eighth Defrauding the friends of a dead soldier by taking 175 contributed by the men of his company for the purpose of embalming the body of a deceased comrade, and appro priating the same to his own use, leaving the dead boys father to pay the bill. )See docu ments Nos. & 3 and 4. Ninth Publicly uttering a falsehood by denying the charge in the above counVeighth) and exhibiting to the people of Leavenworth a bogus receipt tor the embalming aforesaid. (See document No. 11.) Tenth-Having failed In business several times under suspicious circumstances, with seventeen unsatisfied Judgment In favor of his creditors standing against him In the courts of New York. (See document No. 8.) Eleventh-Treating the soldiers under his command so cruelly and tyranlcally that he was obliged to leave his native state, after the war, for fear of personal violence from some of the men he had maltreated (See documeut Nos. 2 and 4. Twelth-Treachery and swindling by be traying the confidence of an aged colored man who had trusted him as a friend, and swindling him out of bis little home and ev erything he possessed, in consequence of which the old man U now compelled, at the age of seventy-three years, to earn his living by dally labor. (See document No. S.) It will be observed that these charges are not ours. They are not made by the People's party. We know nothing personally as to their truth or falsehood, except as we can judge from the documentary evidence submitted. The resolutions were adopted by a great mass meeting of Republicans of Leavenworth county, and the charges were formulated, and the evidence to sustain them giv en to the public by a committee ap pointed by that assemblage of Repub licans for the purpose. The several documents submitted, to which refer ence Is made above, are now In our possession, consisting of affidavits and official court records. They are quite lengthy, but they will be published if the truth of the charges is called in question. It will be observed that the Repub licans who make these charges assert that they personally know George T. Anthony, and know him to be a bad man; that they know his record as a citizen and a soldier, and they sub mit this address for the purpose of in ducing honest Republicans to decline to vote for him for responsible official position. With such a man on the ticket today we are told it is a clean ticket and the voters of the state are asked to "stand up for Kansas'' by sustaining it at the polls. DEMOCRATIC CONTENTION.

Which report was on motion unan imously adopted. The report of committee on per- manent organization and order of business was as follows: Your committee on nermnnpnt nr. ganization and order of business sub mitted the following: First, That the temporary officers be made permanent. Obder of Business. First. Nnm. ination of county attorney. That the central committee be empowered to ou out Daiance oi county ticket. Second, Xomination for represen tative for the 70th representative district. Third, Nomination of candidate for representative of 71st representative district. Fourth, Nomination of commis sioner of 3rd district. (Signed) O. J. Hacknit. The report of the committee on resolutions was unanimously adopted and is as follows, to-wit: The Democratic party of Sumner county in convention assembled, makes the following declarations of its views and conviction: Iitioh-td; First, that we endorse the platforms adopted by the Demo ocratic national convention at Chica go, and the state convention at Topeka' as clear, full, strong and explicit of patriotic principles; and that we heartily hail the nominations Grover Cleveland and Adlai E. Stev enson, as those which represeat the highest type of statesmanship, and afford the safest guarantee of the en forcement of Democratic doctrine, and of a faithful, honest and econom ical administration of the general government. We approve the action of the Democratic congressional convention held at Dodge City in re fraining from making a straight Democratic nomination; and Ileiohed; Second, that the ques tion of taxation is that which dis tinguishes the Democratic party from the Republican party, in this campaign. Our views as Democrats were well expressed by . A. W. Smith, now the candidate of the Re publican party for governor of the state, in the following resolutions reported bv him to the McPherson county Alliance in January 1890; namely: Believing in the doctrine of equal rights to all; special privileges to none; we demand that taxation, national or state, shall not be used, to build up one interest or class at the expense of another. We believ that the money of the country shoula be kept as much as possible in the hands of the people and hence we demand that all revenues national, state or county, shall be limited to the necessary expenses of the gov ernment, economically and honestly administered ! These views clearly expressed and well understood by the writer are the historical and permanent princi ples of the Democratic party. Their endorsements and accept ance makes us Democrats, and they are the views held in common with us by the People's Party. Their re jections, mark the Republican. And we cite these views of Mr. Smith to show that while a Demo crat in principle he is a Republican only for what there "is in it." We place in comparison with his principles and practice the record of the Hon. Jerry Simpson who was nominated for congress in 1890 upon a profession of the same doctrine. During his first session in congress he has continued to uphold these views, and to vote for them upon the Democratic measures for free wool, free binding twine, and free cotton ties. We judge of the future by the past, and feeling from what he has done that we can rely upon him, if re-elected, to continue to support those principles of the Democratic party a3 avowed by both Mr. Smith and himself, we recommend all Dem ocrats of our county to support him We invite the large number of our Republican fellow citizens who be lieve with us, that a prohibitive tariff is a robber tariff to unite with us, in endorsing the principle of A.

The People's Voice, Wellington' Kansas, says that new wheat is com ing in town, but it don't hear of any one getting sixty cents a bushel for it yet. The untaxed owners of United States bonds are coming back from Europe after spending their profits in other countries, but we do not hear of any of them going into the People's Party, as that would hurt them in the region of their pockets and those are the only pockets they care for.
