"Monday night of this wetk the Mail and l!r eze ed tor from Topeka came down to Anthony with a batch of cold storage oratory and frost-bitten wit that wilted everything before it Mc Xeal was advertised as the ' greatest western humorist," but his jokes were soold and their application so obscure itwas necessary to have a young man along1 with him drawing pictures to assist the funny man in explaining his jokes to us thick-headed hijrh grass dwellers upon the plains of Kansas." The above from the Anthony Iiulle tin very aptly describes the meeting in Wellington on Wednesday evening of la.t week by the same parties. The patronizing air with which Populists were told they were a lot of deluded ignoramuses who were being worked for suckers by the Democrats was an insult to the intelligence of every Pop ulist in the audience. The coarse and brutal cartoon of a man so dear to the people of his party as Bryan doubtless pleased a few Republicans so prejU' diced they can see no good in any thing which does not bear the Repub lican brand; but it pleased no one else and will be as such things always are a boomerang. Jerry's Splendid Meeting. Although the liwk Island train was late aod Simpson did not reach the city till after 9 o'clock last even log, th? audience tilled the opera house, gallery and all waited goon oature.iiy for him to crue and re- ruainei m the cu.se nearly eleven o'clock.

The music furnished by the polyphone was Highly appreciated and tbe speeches were excellent The school house was packed at Milan and over 400 crowded into a vacant store building at Argonia. The enthusiasm and interest at these meetings is in striking contrast to the lack of interest and small attendance at all of the Republican meetings so far. J. C. F. Home has not been farming since he was forced to resign as grain inspector at Wellington. His farms are rented.

There Is a church, trial at South Haven today, growing out of tbe old IIollingswortb-LeGratjde8uit uver a doctor's bill last spring. Dr. Holliogswortb brought suit against LeGrande to recover a bill for reatitig tbe defendant's eyes for in juries resulting from a lime explo sion. LtGraode brought a counter suit asking for damages, alleging mal practice as the ground lot action, The uit was bitterly feugbt, and tie friends of both parties arrayed them selves on ooe side or the other of tbe case. One of Dr. Hollingbworth's witnesses was W. E. Franklin. Frank- in and LeGrande are both members of tbe same cburcb, tbe Metbodlst. Naturally Franklin's and Le- Grande's testimony did not harmoo- ize. rransiia testified to ene thing and Lt Grande testified to another. One of the attorneys in tbe casp, not Knowing what a row be was about to stir up in the South Haven Methodist cii in en, isked LeGrande on the wit ness stand if Frankliu'g testimony was true. LeGrande said it was incorrect. "Then be lied, did be." the attor ney asked. "His testimony was not correct," repeated LeGrande. "Well then, be muBt have lied, Tidn't b?" the attorney insisted. This kind of cross examination was kept up until LtGraude finally as o( d as said that Franklin had lied. Franklin never got over tbe im peachment of LeGrande, and finally took the matter up before the church, fie preferred "charges" jgairst Le Grande, charging him with refusing to pay a bill and with calling a broth er member of tbe church a liar. The trial is being held today before Rev. D W. Phillipps of Wi'.fleld, whom Presiding Elder Ebright ap pointed to sit in the case. The Meth odist code provides that tbe judge of a trial shall be of the twelve jurors. Among the eleven others who will hear tbe case and decide the fate of Mr. LeGrande are E. C- Trowbridge 4 Wellington, D. U. Ball, Henry Armstrong, John Green and T. A. Hubbard. Harry Woods was In South Haven Tuesday acting as counsel for B. M. LeGrande. in the Franklin-LeGrande church trial. Mr. Woods says there were four "charges" against LeGrande instead of two. One of tbe charges was that LeGrande nbused Dr. Hol- lingsworth, the plaintll in the suit over a doctor's bill, at the depot in Wellington. Lf Grande was acquitted on all the charges except the one growing out of the quarrel at the depot. The jury found that LeGrande did lose his temper a little on this occasion, and recommended that be be mildly reprimanded. New Department Store.
