rangements for a leave of absence to con

of taxes from certain parties In the West

Topeka, Kns May 23. (Special.) By a
vote of IS (o 10 to-day the bankers' conven
tion decided tipen the appointment of n
committee, whoso duty It should bo lo try
nnd Induce congress to pass a law embody
ing the llnanclal scheme presented by Kd
ward Wilder, treasurer of the Santa Fo
railroad company, In his ndilress last night.
The scheme, as presented by Mr. Wilder,
Is as follows
"The silver question, and the problem of
the nntlonnl finances, have overshadowed
all other Interests.
"Roth problems have darkly clouded our
"One of my banker friends recently
evaded a discussion of the silver question
by declaring that the only persons who
felt perfectly sure of the case were those
who knew nothing whatever about It.
"I think there Is a largo majority who
believe that the government should, as
quickly as possible, go out of the banking,
money issuing and export gold furnishing
business. This being agreed upon, what
are the main features of the practical prob
lem? Mainly, the retirement of about
$3 F,, 000,000 of United State? notes and $13,6,
000,000 of treasury notes- of ISM, redeemable
In coin, practically gold, which were our
dally nightmare last year.
"The funding and retirement of this
$.710,000,000 of circulation should be nccom
pllshed without the slightest disturbance
liy the Issuance, under new legislation, of
2 percent gold bonds, and an equal amount
of new circulation based upon nnd secured
by tlio deposit of the bonds In the treasury,
and, as these demand notes are now held
by national batiks, state banks, trust com
panies, savings banks and Individuals, and
as they have a value from their 'gold de
mand' quality. In addition to their face
value, as currency, tho present holders
should receive In compensation whatever
advantage comes from the exchange that
is, the 2 per cent per annum on the bonds
nnd the new currency. Tho new circulation
should not be the promise of the govern
ment to pay, nor the promise of the bank,
because It represents and Is secured by the
government gold bond, which Is the prom
ise to pay and the only one needed."
The committee appointed to engineer con
gress are: Edward Wilder, A. Oberndorf,
of Frankfort; J. A. Swenson. of Lindsborg:
Carl Friend, of Soldier, and S. T. Howe, of
Governor Morrill addressed tho conven

on "Ranks nnd Rankers."
The following were selected as officers of

A number of addresses were delivered at
the two sessions to-day. Porter Sherman,
of Kansas City, Kas., told "Why Wo Ex

llerlngton, read a paper. In which he dealt
with the scarecrows which make coun

read a paper upon "Some Phases of the
.Money question; - it. a. imtk, or Aicnison,
handled the topic, "Sliver," with painstak
ing avoidance. Indeed, none of the sjwnk
ers met tho silver Issue fairly. Several
side swipes were delivered at the white
metal, but none nro30 to defend, and on
nil sides, there was a plain disposition lo
light shy of an open discussion of the ques

was reached tills afternoon it was indus
triously overlooked, and the bankers nil
went to talking about something else, to
the disappointment nf a large audience.

Labor has declared Itself In favor of tho
amendments to the charter to be voted on
Juno 6. At a meeting of tho Industrial
Council last night, this lody, the repre
sentative head of nil labor organizations In
the city, took a llrm stand on tho side of
municipal ownership of tho wntcr works,
the payment of the purchase price In bonds
and the establishment of freo parks and
boulevards. The council received a sub
committee from the general committee
which Is In charge of tho campaign of ed
ucation, nnd accorded the members of tho
sub-commltteo the privilege of speaking
on tho nmendments. Then the members of
the sub-commltteo were voted a rising ex
pression of thnnkH for explaining the legal
status of the two principal amendments.
At a later hour In tlio proceedings strong
resolutions Indorsing the propositions In
the amendments wero adopted by the
unanimous vote of the delegates preront.
The sub-committee, which consisted of
Colonel R. It. Hunt, D. J. Haft and Clar
ence S. Palmer, addressed the council nnd
explained nil of tho legal questions In
volved in the propositions offered to tho
people for ratification. They dwelt upon
the fact that the city already owns the
water works, by decree of the federal
court, and that the bond Issue Is merely nn
easy way to pay the price llxed 1n this
same decree. They also explained that un
der the present section of the charter gov
erning parks and boulevards, the board
has just as ample power as It will have un
der tho new section, if adopted, and that
the new section merely permits the board
to extend the time of payment of special
taxes over a term of years, to be regulated
by tile size of the contract. Instead of
forcing payment in one lump sum, as must
be done now, when the condemnation pro
cess Is used to acquire park lands.
As tho campaign progresses the pros
pects for the adoption of all of the amend
ments grow brighter. The action of the
labor organization is supplemented by the
growing enthusiasm In every direction.
Chairman Richards, of the finance commit
tee, authorizes the statement that funds
are coming In without solicitation and that
there will be little. If any, dllllculty In
securing such a fund as will place the true
facts In the hands of every voter in the
city. Voters who might be doubtful on ac
count of their apathy are being readied by
letter and personal persuasion to attend
the mass meeting to-morrow night, and
arrangements aru being rapidly pei footed
for a systematic canvass of the entire city,
liy the time the meeting In Turner hall ad
journs the voters of the city will have re
ceived such a lesson In tho dangers of de
feating the amendments that there will lie
no question as to the result on June C.
Addressed liy the Slili-eoilllnlttee.
When the sub-commlttoe appointed to
visit the Industrial Council w-.is admitted
to tho hall at 1013 Walnut street last night
the members found the hall well tilled
with delegates. President Sollis called tho
attention of the council to the purpose of
tho visit and Invited the committee to nd
dress tho council. Colonel Hunt was the
llrst speaker, lie spoko of the original
plan to build a system of water works In
ls"2 and the failure- because tlio peoplo
feared that they were financially too weak.
Ho said they made a mistake then nnd
have been making mistake ever since.
The Issue of iMinds to buy or build water
works would not bo a debt. The plant will
earn a handsome revenue and would have
paid for Itself twice over If the city had
constructed the works at first. He gave
some figures to show that it will actually
Increase the revenues of the city before
the time expires during which the bonds
Ho said it was not optional for the city
to pay or not pay for the works. That
question had been settled forever by tho
court. The city Is now the owner of the
works, the only thing to be done being
tho payment of the prlco adjudicated. If
the bands are not Issued, then tho court
has tlio power and will cause a levy to bo
made. This will force the payment In
a lump sum nnd would practically bank
rupt the city and all Its citizens. So far
as the parka are concerned, the present
park lioaid lias the same power under
evlstlng laws that It would have under
tliu proposed amendment, Tho best evi
dence of this Is the fact that the board
Is going right on with Independent boule
vard under the old law. The advantages of
tho new one would be that payments of
taxes could extend over long terms, Instead
of being made In one payment, as is tliu
Mr llnff said that he believed there was
substantial agreement on all sides on the
proposition submitted, He thought tliu
council favored tho municipal ownership
of the water works and many other public,
systems, In the present case the owner
ship has been settled, Under tlio city oiv.
ershlp of tho works, after paying all ex
penses of operation, etc., there would bo
somewhere near 2u0,000 a year to be ex.
peuded In Impiovlng nnd extending the
works. New mains would be laid nnd
old ones be repaired. All of this money
would be used hero to pay Kansas City
labor and would add to tho revenues of the
On the park proposition, Mr, Haff said
he did not know of anybody who is against
public parks but tho man who is holding
a farm he bought years ago and who has
always objected to any public- Improve
ments because the cost of part would fall
on him. He waits for tho other people to
make his laud valuable, but himself re
fuses to take part in anything for the gen
eral pood. He said It was due to the poor
man to have breathing places In the city,
He referred to the park system of Chi
cago and said he hail letters from labor
leaders there who said that the publlo park
system had been the distinct means of
seeming a Saturday half holiday for the
laborer in that city. He had himself been
In South park and had seen thousands of
working men with their wives and children
enjoying tho cool air ami resting In tho
shade of the trees, while the babies rolled
In the gross and grew fat. The parks are
not used by the men with the dock-tailed
horses. This man drives through on the
driveways, but ho seldom, If ever, visits
the parks for recreation.
Mr, Palmer said that on the water works
and park questions all Kansas City people
are in the samo boat. If the bonds are
not Issued the court will order the city
olllcers to levy a tax. If the tax Is levied,
the other speakers had shown what would
be the result. If the tax Is not levied,
then the court would send tho city olllcers
to jail, as Judco Philips did the county
Judges of St. Clair county. He did not
think It would b" desirable for tho affairs
of this city to be run while the mayor
and other city officers are guests of Mar
shall Stewart. On the park question, Mr.
Palmer said that there was one feature
of the case wklch had not tieen touched
upon liy the otter speaker". That was the
well known flrt that many little ones
suffer from tho hnl vind of the summer,
lie said the numbers of the council had
M"ii tho little ones glie tip the struggle
for life !irc.ius4 of the lark of some place
to go to get .1 brrnth of fresh air. He
nked the romcll If they wero going to
let their lmblci surfer beeaiip the parks
would rest a Miio money? lie said that
If his vole on .lime r, should be the means
of depriving thlMrm, perhaps his own,
on lhl llirstltiable privilege, then he
would be deserving the contempt of every
man worthy nr the title. Ills remarks were
warmly npplauaed by the council.
After the ei(irlnion of Mr, Palmer's
peerli, the council by a rifling vote ten
dered the pnmtrttti'c Its tlmnks for appear
ing and addressing It on the amendments.
The council thr-n went Into executive ses
sion and liy utnnlmoiis vote declaird It
self In favor of water works and parks by
the following rotutlons:
"Whereas, Th municipal authorities: of
Kansas City, Slti., have Issued a call for
a special Flection to be held June ii, lvo,
whereby It Is proposed lo submit to the
eleclors certain amendments to our city
"Wlierea", SalJ amendments are for the
puriwse: First, of enabling the city to ac
quire the water works according to the
terms of a decrte rendered by the Fnlted
Slates court of appeals; second, of ena
bling the city te lay out and build In nn
economical manner parks and boulevards
nnd provide for the maintenance of the
same, und third, to reduce license fees;
"Whereas, It Ii considered by the Indus
trial Council of Kansas City, .Io that all
the proposed ntmiulmonts lo the city char
ter are or vital concern tn the future of
the city nnd of urgent Importance to every
citizen thereof of every condition and call
ing, and especially Hint city ownership
or the water works and siirh public Im
provements as are contemplated will give
employment to Urge numbers of our un
employed worklnsmen; now, therefore, bo
"Resolved, That the Industrial Council
of Kansas City, Mo most earnestly In
dorses each and all of the proposed char
ter amendments and urnrH upon every
member of the trades unions, who has nt
heart the benefit and future nt the city,
the comfort of his family and the Inteirst
of all worklngmen, without regard fo past
occupation, to work ond vole nlllrmatlvrly
on all of tho questions to be presented at
the said election. That the secretary be
Instructed to forthwith furnish to all the
trades unions and labor associations of the
city a copy of this preamble and resolution
nnd to have tin- same published In all of
tho city papers."
SEVEN PERCENT LEVY.
Tlio Terrible lltirdrn Which the Order
I'roni tin, Court Would Itrlng
"I nm unable to understand how nny
man can vole against the water works
amendment," said Comptroller Shannon
yesterday. "A brief survey of the situa
tion ought fo satisfy anybody that bis
duty to himself demands it vote for tills
measure. It Is Idle to talk of what we
would or would not do under ordinary cir
cumstances. Ordinary circumstances do
not exist. The city must buy the works,
and Just as certainly must pay for them.
This being the case, the whole question
narrows itself down lo the method of the
payment. Now, the city proposes to do
so by issuing twenty year bonds for the
whole sum. If these bonds are defe.atisl
the city must find some other method. It
Is a question of a. light burden, which will
cease to lie a burden before the bonds aro
paid and become a public uencllt. If not a
source of revenue, nnd the payment of the
money In a lump.
"Just now It seems to me It Is good
financiering for the peoplo to study this
matter with a view to determining what
the percentage of taxation would be under
a specific levy ordered by the court. The
lawyers for the city are united on the
proposition that the iwirt lias the power to
mandamus and force a, levy, making tho
Judgment of $3,0uo,000 payable In one year.
If this should be done, then the citizens
would pay $7 out of every Jioo he posm's.-n
according to the taxable valuation. In
other words, our taxable valuation for
this year Is J.Vi.oeo.OoO In round numbers.
Tho amount which must tie paid the water
works company Is $3,l,0O0. Then the
council must levy a tux to support the
government. This amounts to nearly
$l,l(W,ooi) more. Now, $1,000,000 I over 7
per cent of the total assessed valuation of
"The fact Is, that If the bonds should fall
and the lew be ordered, the taxpayer
would earn S10O and have the use of only
93. The taxpayer kicks if his taxes go as
high us 1 per cent. 1 wonder what he
would say to seven times that amount.
Yet this Is what the people art facing In
tills water works deal. Rased on a rev
enue of $100,000 from the water works, in
the hands of the city, the sinking fund
needed to puv the bonus would take iwi.
000 a year. If this fund was loaned out !-
that it earned .1 per cent. It would grad
ually decrea.-e the amount necessary to
be added eacli year, until the fund would
bo paying the bonds Itself before the bonds
became due. The balance- of tho revenue
would bo used to maintain and extend the
works, and even then there would probably
be n surplus for general use. The general
result would be that the works would pay
themselves out and there would be no
burden milled to the taxes of the peoplo
because of the punhase, while there would
be a decided benefit In cheaper water and
the control of the whole .system. Theso
facts ought to satisfy any man of ills pres
ent duty to vote for the bonds."

(Irent Disappointment I'aloe lo Mnnj of the
l.nuil Hunters nnd Innumerable Con
tests Hum. Already Iteen Slarled
Marshals Hn, u right With
N liltky Sellers Incidents,
Guthrie, O. T May 23.-(Speelat.) The
greatest farce the American people have
ever seen is over nnd to-night 10,000 people
are sorely disappointed. The Klckapoo res
ervation Is open wide open and several
thousand people are haggling over the pos
session of lie claims of poor upland, not
over half of which would bring the govern
ment pi ice of $1.W per acre In oprn mar
ket, while thousands are returning home
In disgust. All night last night crowds
continued to leave for the line and a con
servative estimate of the total number
waiting for the opening signal tills morn
ing Is from 10,000 to 12.ln.sj. During the
night the same camp (Ire scenes were en
acted all along the line, songs and
laughter, studying of maps and laying of
plans, here and there a drunken row and
the ever present sooner slipping through
at every gap In the line of settlers, which
extended almost continuously about the
Whisky Sellers Itnldeil.
The only trouble of nny kind was on the
east line, live miles north of Shawnee,
where a party of deputy United States
marshals raided the onmp or a gang of
whisky sellers, who were supplying the
Klckapoo Indians with liquor. The ped
dlers, who are believed lo be members of
an outlaw gang, fought desperately against
bfdng taken and two were killed and two
wounded by the deputies.
'I'll,, ftllsb Iteglus.
This morning there was hurried packing
up and moving to best starting places
along the line ami the lone; wait in sus
pense for the starting signals. The morn
ing was cold and dismal atnl Just before
noon a drizzling rain set In, but few
sought any shelter. The signals were
fired by men selected by cadi group of
boomers, no soldiers nor deputy marshals
being present and the start began ns a
general thing a little before 12 all along
the line, and the rush began. Those en
tering from the eastern and northern sides
had several miles of allotments and school
sections to cross before coming to nuy
available claims and were soon out of
sight. Along the east side the open land
came right up to the border rind the boom
ers began driving stakes as soon ns they
crossed the line, from six to ten settling
upon every quarter section. .Most of Un
people going in from Guthrie had assem
bled .it Ingram and Garnettsvllle, on the
north, nnd made a long rare for the few
good claims near the center of the res
ervation. Nearly every tesldent of the
town of Chandler went In on the north
east, and Teciimseh. near tho southern
point of the reservation, Is reported de
populated, tlie people having nil gone lo
the new town of Olney, located on the
line of the Choctaw, eight miles west of
Shawnee. Many tettlers from the west
side drove lecklessly through tlie North
Canadian nnd a number got In tlie quirk
sands, losing wagons, horses nnd outfits,
nnd barely escaping with their lives.
Oulel at Guthrie
At the land ofllce here everything was
quiet nnd not over forty people were 111
line, all of tlie land in the Guthrie dl.strlct
save n few Iractlonal quarters along the.
Deep Fork being taken for school lands.
When the land otllee door was opened an
attempt was made to break the line, and
one man did get Inside the door, but four
men fiom the line seized him and threw
htm In tho street. M. L. Carlisle, a r.-al
estate dealer of this city, was Hist to file.
It took til in two seconds, but lie is already
contested by a cettler who swear,, be
leaped the Deep Folk In our second, A
number of others followed In quick t.urcr
slon, ihirty persons tiling up to 1 o'cloi k,
when the ollicu closed.
Arrlveit liy .Mulo 1'ower.
Frank Ossaivlskl. a Pole, riding a long
legged mule, was the first settler to arrive
from tliu line, getting here at 3:10 o'clock.
He forded the Deep Foil;, drove his stake
on a fractional section of 1M acres, wheeled
.and started tor the land oilier. Miss Mahrl
E. Laycock, of Wichita, Kas., was Hie
llrst lady to tile, who was followed by Mist.
Cora Stevens, who was contested within
two hours liy Juhu A. Hllzzard, an actual
M'ttler, who came like a true blizzard from
the claim he had secured. At 3:30 Mrs. .K-s-slo
13. Elsie, ii young widow, arilved from
tlie reservation horseback and filed nn the
claim she had staked within two minutes
Clime Hack Swearing.
It was well along towards night when
the llrst Instalment of disappointed boom
ers began to arrive and they soon came
quick and fast. The llrst man was swear
ing at eveiybodv from Glover Cleveland
down to Hit typewriter In the local laud
oillce, declaring the whole opening to be
one of tlie most infamous swindles and
conlldence games ever perpetrated on an
honest people. He said that there were
not loi good claims left for settlers In
the whole country, and every claim had
several oouers lighting for it when the
honest settleis arrived. Tho Interior de
partment talk about honest ecttlers watch
lug and keeping out soouers, he said, was
all rot. The sooners hyd been In the coun
try for days und Just befoi noon begin
ildlng around gieat circles, finally winding
up ut their favorite claim just ahead of
the settler. What could the settler do
when u dozen sooners wero ull on claims
close together with horses sweating as
from a long run, and every one of the doz
eu swearing they had ull ridden together
nam the line?
'three Persons Drownrd.
Henry 1 louum, a colored man from
Douglas City, said that at noon a dozen
or more Intending settlers lost lioree.
wagons and outllts in the quicksands of
the North Canadian river south of there,
and that three, persons were drowned.
