Senator ArmKlronc; Ankn If He "Would Veto a. mil AI.oIIsIiIiik the Jlct rop11lnn Police tsjsjtcm IlciiubllcanK AIxo Sink In); Trouble. Topeka, Kas., Feb. 15. CSprclaL) The Pop .ilist members of the legislature arc taking Governor Lecdy's club out of his hands and beating him over the hod with it. The governor started out to drive the legis lators into a pledge to support the Utile railroad bill. Several of the members re tcnted his despotism and are giving him a flosc of his own medicine. They have written the governor to know what he xill do with a bill to abolish the mctro liclltan police system if they pats It. "If you will pledge yourself to sign such a. bill, then I will, perhaps, outline to you iry position on the railroad bill, and tho lcasibillty of calling a special session," is tho reply made by so many Populist legis lators as to arouse suspicion that they have m 'understanding with each other. The governor now realizes how impertinent It 3 for one branch of the state government to nttempt to dictate to the other. "While many of the Populists have taken the course above stated to resent Leedy's attempted usurpation of power, the Re publicans have adopted another plan, which is just as humiliating to the chief execu tive. In reply to the governor's letter, without saying what they will do, they Invariably ask: "Governor, if we would meet and pass tho bill -which you enclosed, y.-euld you sign it?" This is like rubbing t.alt on a fresh wound. t State Senator John Armstrong, of Bar ton county, and Representative Con Sim mons, of Franklin county, are the two latest 1'opocratic members of the legislature to declare against an extra session. Just to taunt Leedy. Armstrong says ho might consent to an extra session If the govern or would pledge the legislature that he would sign a bill to abolish the metropoli tan police. Said he to-day: "I told Leody last winter that this police business was a bucking broncho. " 'Well, that's just what 1 want to tackle," re-plied the governor. "1 warned him then that it he did, he would get split clear up to the collar but ton, but he insisted. 1 guess he finds out that, he ain't buch an expert broncho rider after all." . . , "Governor Leedy will make a mistake if he calls the legislature together in ex tra session," said Mr. Simmons to-day. "Ho will hurt his party and give the Re publicans a whip with which to crack; us over the back in the next campaign. I am opposed to such a move, and If I had any intluence would try to persuade the gov ernor, to abandon such a course. T believe that we have a competent board of railroad commissioners who aro trying tho present law to find the weak points in it. I am in favor of allowng them to continue, and then let them make a report to the next legislature. By that time they will have found all tho defects in the law as it stands, and can suggest radical measures for Its improvement. This will prevent the big expense of an extra session, and ultimately result in as much benefit to- tho people of the state. I am really sorry on account of the party that Governor Leedy proposes such a move. State Senator Ryan, Populist, of Craw ford county, is also opposed, to an extra session of the legislature. He is one of the Pops whom the administration thought it could count on. In his reply to Governor Leedy's query ho declared that while ho favored a freight bill giving the commis sioners power to fix maximum rates, he was opposed to any measure "that would create another place for a lawyer. Ho ald If places had to be created they should be mado for farmers. He was against making any more places for anybody, however. He said ho did not like the Little bill because it did not mako the positions of railroad commissioner elec tive. Senator Ryan said further that If it was true, as related by the governor, that if a railroad law was passed now It would not be of any benefit until August, he would be in favor of waiting six months longer and save tho expense of an 'extra session. "Tou have waited so' long now you had better wait till next winter," ho continued. "Again, I do not propose to be mado to appear as clay in tho hands of any man or citizen. I care not what his posi tion may be. I claim to be a Jackson Dem ocrat. The government consists of three parts and, by the eternal, I am a member of one party" WHY BUSH DID HIS DUTY. He "Won Frightened. Into It Darin? tbc Fight He Made on Turner. Topeka. Kas.. Feb. 13. (Special.) The se ct ct of tho move made by Secretary of Stale Bush to compel companies chartered under tho laws of Kansas to file annual reports leaked out to-day. It was brought about by the fight instituted by Bush to de-lcs-e R. "IV. Turner as secretary of the Mute board of railroad commissioners. Turnpr and Bush reside In the same coun t v Jewell and when Buh opened up on Turner some of the anti-Bush Pops of that county flocked to Turner's support. In the t-cramblo it developed that Bush's paper. the "Western Advocate, was run by a stock company, and that Bush had not been de claring nny dividends or letting some of the stockholders know the financial condi tion of the enterprise. These dissatisfied stockholders sought out Turner and asked him to look the matter up. Turner said the state law provided that all corporations hiiould file annual statements witli the sec retary of state, and that he would examine- the last one filed by Bush's com Imiiv. Ho came down here and inquired at Bush's office for the last statement filed by tho Western Advocate Company.- wNo" Mich statement was on tile. The clerk1? In" Bush's otllco confessed that no corporations ever tiled such statements. Turner pulled the law on them. Tills threw Bush and his clerks Into a stale of great exc-ltemcnt. Thcv thought tney saw in Turner move ment a plan to throw the paper into the hands of a recclter and to raise Cain in Jewell county. So Bush had a statement tiled Immediately. The stockholders who were kicking received pay for their stotk. Turner also warned tho elciks mat It was the duty of tho secretary of state to re ciuiro annual statements, and added that It ho did not he would be liable to Impeach ment for dereliction of duty. This scared Bush worse than ever. He was afraid that Turner pronc-ed to open up on this nlsn. In order to head off any scheme of this kind Bush had blanks limited and sent them out to nil the corporations organized for profit, instructing them to fill them out and tcturn to his office at once. M'NALL LEARNS SOMETHING. An 1'nstern Artunrj- Toll Him Hcnv Innurniiee Couiimiiloi Ilnndle Tlictr "Mnsh Fniiiln." Topeka, Kas., Feb. 13. (Special 1 The various insurance companies of New York maintain a pool into which each contributes large sums of money t be used in cam paigns and to influence legislation, accord ing to a letter received by Stuto Super intendent of Insurance McXnll to-day and , from iiL-urance actuary of New York city to-day. This actuary saw In tho papers that McNall proposed to get out a supple mental blank quizzing tho various compan ies of the Bast as to the amount of money they Fpent In campaigns and the amount to influence legislation, not only in Kan was, but in other states. He wrote to givo MeNuIl some trolnters as to how to get at the "influence" figures. "You will find by asking that the com panies never spend any money for leg islativo purposes, direct," said he. "They will all answer that they have spent none. Tho way you want to get at them is to ask them how much they contribute each year to the pool maintained In New York c-ity. Possibly you can get at tho matter that way. Tho fact is the companies have formed a pool and they dump their corrup tion money into a common fund. Tnls is handled by expert lobbyists. The compan ies do not use money direct. It is always done through this channel." The actuary promises to give tho-superintendent some more Information concern ing the personnel of the pool manipulators as the fight progresses. Profiting by this Information, tlu sUper- latendent, in getting up his blank this week, will frame it fo as to catch the pool alio, lie will require the companies to tell whether they have done business direct with various .legislatures, and whether they contribute to a pool of any kind. "The companies, yo the actuary says," said he to-du, "claim they don't know what the money they throw into it Is used for. If they don't, it seems to me that it Is rather loose business methods, and is not In keeping; with sound business principles nor in the interests of the policy holders. If such a pool is in existence, and this man seems to know what he is talk iiic about, I propose to uncover it." The insurance companies are kicking Iiko hay steers on account of being com pelled to tell the salaries of their officers. Some of them try to evade it. but McNall tends back their reports as fast as they come in, unless they contain the informa tion he asked for. It is remarkable how the Intern people are applauding McNuIl for this move. It l the first thins: he has done s-ince taking that office that has won their approval. Scores of letters reach him daily from the Xew England states praising him for It. They say that there has always been a deep mystery surround ing insurance salaries, and that no other state Insurance superintendent has had the courage to defy these big corporations and make them divulge this information. FOURTH ININ A YEAR. (iiiirrnor Leedy Annies n New Fort Scott Police llonrd AVIlIIniim "Will Not Be Chief. Topeka. Kas., Feb. 13.-(Special.) For the fourth time during the pa.st year Gov ernor Leedy to-day made a change in tho police board at Fort Scott. He arrived from Lawreneo at noon and at 2 o'clock issued an order removing all three members of tho old board. Miles Jones, J. "W. Bowlus and E. P. Bowen. Tho next moment he appointed a new board as follows: Thomas Cochran, Popu list, president; Robert Osborn, Populist, secretary, and J. F. Cottrell, Democrat. The governor expects this new board to heal up all the troubles in the allied party In Bourbon county, but a prominent Popu list citizen of that county stated, after hearing of the appointments, that the gov ernor would be sadly disappointed. It is understood that in tho appointment of the above board the governor requested certain Populists of Bouroon county to rec ommend to him two names and certain Democrats to recommend one name, and tho above members were recommended by these Pops and Democrats. The governor has agreed to keep his hands oft subordinate police appointments. TM3 means that his friend, Ross "Williams, will not bo reinstated as chief. The pro gramme Is to appoint William Monahan. chief of police; Martin Dearth, jailer, and A. B. Shipp, police judge. When asked what he thought of the new board. Railroad Commissioner Dillard said: "1 suppose, under all the circumstances, it is as. well as the governor could have dene, after the troubles which arose over his removal of the Robens-Lowry-Bowlus board. The governor has never consulted mo with reference to any appointments or removals of tho Fort Scott board, and my views were not asked or followed in the present appointments. I suggested to the governor the idea that if he removed the Jones board and did not abolish the bc.rd entirely, he would better name as ono of the new members a straight Repub lican. I thought this would give tho new board the advantage of being at least non partisan and might possibly give better sat isfaction. I -named to him several Repub licans whom I knew to be good, honest men, whose names would add much to the standing of the board. I especially recommended-Mr. George Myers, a lifelong Re publlean, but a man with whom I had served upon the city council and knev, would bo a reputable, representative busi ness man, and whose views coincided with the great majority of the voters of Fort Scott upon the question of enforcing the prohibitory law. In fact. I have always believed that when a law required the ap pointment of some person of an opposlto political party from the appointing power the spirit of the law was not complied with by the appointment of a person nom irally but not really opposed in .politics to me appointing power, mo ,.-,o,u., ..... render me Ineligible to the appointment of railroad commissioner which I now hold, for the reason that It Is and was known that n the campaign of 1S96 I supported and advocated the election of the Populist state ticket, and whilo no man living has ever heard me say that I was anything but a Democrat yet it is a serious question, whether, with my politics, I should havo been elected a member of the;raiIroad board after two well known Populists had been i ...i n,vof 4ii0 nrnvlsinn of law whlcli provides that no more than two of the com mlssloners shall belong to the same politi cal party. My suggestions apparently did not meet the approval of the governor or hlV advisers since no Republican was named on tills police board. KANSAS TEMPERANCE REVIVAL. State Union Send for Dr. Hovrnrd II. Htiell and. Two Flrsjt-Clana Orpranlzersi. Topeka, Kas.. Feb. 13. (Special.) The members of the new executive committee of the Kansas State Temperance Union do not propose apparently to pose as figure heads during their term of office. At a well attended meeting to-day of the local mem bers of the committee, at which were pres ent among others. Senator Peffer and Gov ernorTroutman. the secretary of the union was instructed to telegraph to Dr. Howard H Russell, the national superintendent of tho American Anti-Saloon League, whose presence so greatly enthused the recent annual convention of the union, to come . .i... -.-.a oa ennn nt nosslble ana bring -with him two of the best speakers and or ganizers he can find on his national staff, it is exnected that Dr. Russell will make a tour of Uie6 state, beginning about April 1 Secretary Stephens said to-dav. Our committee Is greatly encouraged at the outlook. The annual convention was more than we dared to expect, both in attend- a "ThenexecuUve committee which was se lected is the strongest the : union has eycr had Every member Is determined to make this a memorable year in aggressive tem perance work. "At the next general meeting of the com mittee, which is to be held In this city at 3nm Tucdav, February 22, the work of the' year will be mapped out more in de tail " "What action will the union take with reference to the candidates for governor? "If our organization does anything at all." replied Mr. Stephens. "It will be en tirely In a non-partisan way e will en deavor to Influence the good citizens of all parties to attend the primaries, and to see that their very best man is nominated. "If Leedy is renominated, I should, as far as I am personally concerned, like to SCG r I J. LODUrn liuillliuiicu un .m-q icj;uu- llcan ticket. He I by all odds the mot popular man in the state, although of course there are other very excellent men. "But Mr. Coburn is not only popular and would command thousands of votes. Irre spective of partv. but, more than this, he has taken a manly stand in the matter of law enforcement. He Is conscientious and at the same time both conservative and progressive. He is a man to say what ho means, and he means every word he says. "With Mr. Coburn nominated, the Popu lists would have to put up a good man to beat him. If the Populist convention could be Induced, by the rank and file of their party, to nominate such a man as Brelden thal or Peffer. I think no kick would be forthcoming from the good citizens of any party." "GENERAL" ARTZ SPEAKS. Declare I.ceilj'n Railroad Bill Is Along fioveriinicnt by Injunc tion" Linen. Topeka. Kas.. Feb. 13. (Special.) If Governor Leedy ever had any intention of calling an extra, session of the legislature, he will no doubt abandon it now. Giner 3" Artz has spoken. He says that Leedy has taken his cue from Judge Grosscup, the father of government by injunction, and that the bill drawn up and submitted to the members of the legislature is in di rect line with the views given by Judge Groscup in his address at the recent con vention of the State Bar Association. In an open letter in the Topeka American, Artz says: "It now seems, from the draft of the bill sent out to the members, that the govrnor has taken his cue from the speech of Juflge Grosscup. He wants a commission in Jowed with judicial powers, only icvlewa ble by the supreme court; it leaves tho commission largely unrestricted, to do as it pleases, and incur whatever expense it has a mind to. Under the system of appointing the members of the railroad commission, as provided by law in this state, this bill would simply establish a blackmailing agency, under the dignity of the state ju diciary, and then appoint an assistant at torney general to furnish another office to be filled by appointment and paid for by the people. It is simply placing the matter of railroad government beyond the reach of the people. Pass such a bill as this, and you can never make the railroad commission elective. "It should receive the condemnation ot all Populists. It teems to me it is in direct controvention of even' true Populist prin ciple. It seems to lack sincerity. If Sena tor Young's statement is true that the gov ernor ordered the legislature to adjourn and go home when a bill was proposed last session. 1 think the convening of the pres ent legislature in special session would tend to injure the cause of reform in Kansas. "What we want In this state Is a legislature and state officials that do their duty when first called together, and not have to bo called together a btcond time, upon the dis content of an outraged people. Another raid on" the state treasury by the hungry horde would scarcely help true Populism, in Kansas." A FREE SILVER ADDRESS. KiuiKns Whatnots Will Make a Pow erful Pica for "Xon-I'artlnan 1'oHticK." Topeka, Kas., Feb. 13. (Special.) The ex ecutive committee of the free silver Repub lican slate committee held a meeting this afternoon at the state house and outlined an address to be issued to tho voters of tho state. The committee is composed of office holders under tho state administration. J. W. Turner made a draft of tho address. The free silverites realize that Jt will bo almost impossible for them to lead the free sliver Republican vote over to the Pop ticket like so many sheep, so tiiey havo adopted a diplomatic scheme to win them. In the address, tiiey advocate "non-partisan politics." They say that this is tho only salvation for the country; that voters must place themselves in a position where they can vote for tho party that adopts their principles, and not be driven to voto for their party, no matter what its prin ciples are. The crime of '73 and Ingalls' silver speech take up a considerable por tion of the address. It will be used as a campaign document. INDEPENDENCE, APRIL 6. Republican Congressional Convention for the Third. Kansas District Called. Yesterday. Cherryvale, Kas., Feb. 13. (Special.) Tho Republican congressional committee of the Third district of Kansas met In this city this evening and called a congressional convention to meet in Independence, Mont gomery county, on eanesoay, April b, 1S9S.

COUNT MARSCHALL WANTED. It Is Alleged That He Swindled Mrs. Dlmock, of Virginia, Out of if 30,000. New York, Feb. 15. Count Ernst Victor Marschall, who is held by the Chicago po lice, is wanted by tho authorities In Jersey City.

There are two or three dozen other charges pending against "Count" Marschall in New York and Brooklyn. They cover the criminal ground from petit larceny to breach of promise. The "count" first appeared in this city in 1SS0 with his alleged sister. "Countess" Anna Marie Marschall. They rented sump tuous apartments, had fine turnouts, and made friends rapidly. His first scheme was the establishment of "The Mocha' a Lu topean coffee-house at Twenty-third street and Third avenue. It failed because cred itors wanted their money. J. H. Connell, a wealthy sugar broker ot Brooklyn, who was interested in it. mar ried the "countess," but the marriage was soon annulled. Soon the "count" had more troubles. Miss Christina Smith, a pretty Brooklyn girl, sued the "count" for $20,000, alleging breach of promise. She also got a warrant for his arrest, saying he had bor rowed $3,Ci0 from her while she believed herself on the high road to matrimony and a coronet.
