THE 8MAUA WEEKLY BAZOO. MARCH 8, 1892.
HON. W. J. STONE. His Arraignment of Protection ists and Uther Able Argu ments Last Night -Is Taken Suddenly 111. In response to an invitation ex tended him by the democratic club of Sedalia, Hon. W. J. Stone of Nevada, candidate for gubernatorial nomina tion, spoke at the court bouse Tues day night to a large audience of rep resentative democrats. At the outset of his speech, Mr. Stone stated that he was just recover ing from a violent atUck of la grippe and was still suffering, a fact evi denced when, after speaking about au hour, he was compelled tj desist and stagger to a chair. He was conducted to Sicher'a Hotel, supported ou either side by frit ills, and at once retired. Notwithstanding this unfortunate circumstance Mr. Sioue made an able speech, commanding rapt attention lrom start to abrupt finish. Referring to the fact, by way of apology thdt he was afflicted with the grippe the speaker said that it was an imported disease and came simultaneously with Czir Reed's succession to the speakership two years ago. "Straage" said he, "that with their accustomed inclina tion to levy a tax on all importations that the republicans ignored the ad vent of such an important article." "I don't want you to get frighten ed," said the speaker as belaid a heap of statistical reports on the table "1 merely bring there along to substauti ate any statement I might make that should be impeached, I want to t ilk to you seriously and candidly on one or two great public questions around which the thought of the people in tensely centers. I want to talk in plain and homely fashion. There was a convention in St. Louis the other day composed of representa Uvea from ail the industrial organiza tions of the country, local, state and national all semi-political, most of them positively and aggressively so. From this convention complaints were made : They complained "that the wetlth ot the cuuutry was in the hands of few; that there was an alarming ten dency to concentrate the wealth pro duced by ail the laboring industries ot the country: that wage earners were able to make but a bare living: that they were unable to get a surplus for homes; complaints fmni rural homes of all the stales of Atneiica that the agricultural industries of the country were in a disastrous condition. We are producing on farms in the United States more than ever before in our history. In 1891 there was a surplus of one hundred and ninety-two millions bushels of wheat; and yet with the capacities of our groceries tilled to their utmost, still the lact re mains unquestioned, for 'tis a patent truth to every mind tht farming classes are disturbed, uneasy, discon tented. There is a cloud over the farmer's head which golden sunbeams cannot disseminate. Again, I have taken the pains to compile from our own state labor commissioner's report a few examples of expense and wage stat:stics. Out ot the more than one Hundred cases that I might quote, not in a single in stance do laborers get enough salary to leave a surplus al the end of the year. In Massicliusetts there are an equal number of instances where the laborer's wages are S540.0Q while his expenses loot up sioz.y). xsor is this state of affairs confined to these two commonwealths mentioned, but tne same appalling statistics are no ticeable in a large maj irity of the slates. And yet Andrew J. Carne gie, president of the American Steel and Iroti Association, who claims to be a labor champion re ceives as his share of earnings one million five hundred thousand per year or nearly three dollars per min ute. What is the cause of this evil? Nothing more than the protection given trusts, combines, monopolies or whatever you choose to csll them, which are supported by the nionied horseleeches of public oppression. With tearful eyes Carnegie and his fawning horde of satellites go to Washington and p'ead that for the sake of the poor laborer manufactur ing industries be protected. Let it be suggested though that the poor man's wages be increased i n . , anu arnegies tears arv up or freeze as though he had been struck by an arctic whirlwind." The speaker here quoted statistics from Supt Porter's census showing the relative distribution of the coun try's wealth, the nine northeastern states comprising a population of only 27 per cent, of the Republic owning 60 per cent of all the wealth. During the decade following 1880 the wealth of this section increased from 50 to 80 per cent, beyond that of all the states id the Mississippi valley. The state of Maine showed an increase of 30. while Indiana increased but 7A ; ' Massachusetts ob, Iowa 11), iNevv Hampshire o-, south varolina a ac crete of 1 3-100 per cent. The national luuk circulation has one hundred and seventy-two millions outstanding. Of this fabulous sum the six New hngUnii States own htty-eight per cent., while the nine agricultural states before referred to have but tbir ty per cent. Rhode Island, with a population of even less than St. Louts, has a circu lation of 815 per capita, while Mis souri. with her nearly three million- has 90 cents. The speaker then took up the tariff, sbow:ng how it was responsible for these evils. Referring to the wide spread desire to organize new parties, Mr. Stone said while it was: merely au expression of discontent, yet if the agricultural classes would but cling to the grand old democratic party they would see the day when their fondest hopes would be real-zed. And again talking along the line ut the designing trick exercised by d in agogues who induced the iarniers to deseit ths people's party, the speaker embodied a principle in a single illus tration. Omitting the name of a self constituted, if conspicuous politician, who played the great Mogul at the recent mteting in at. LiDUis, .Air. Stone said: "That fellow reminds me of my neighbor whose wife l:ad been want to extract the lacteal fluid at the dairy. The good wife became sick one day, however, and the bus band bad to pail the cow himself. He got the bucket and advanced to the animal, cooiug pettiugly when 1"! no sooner had he touched the animal's teat than she bawled pite ously, leaped high in air, kicked the green milkman with all four feet and lied in wild dismay. The husband spoke not a word until he reached his wife's bedside, when lifting up bis voice he said in deepest earnest: "Well, wife, that animil can baw louder, hick haruer, leap Irgher and give less milk than any damn cow 1 ever seen in my life."

TUE KAS3A3 KATE TROUHLE. Chicago, March., 3. When the managers ot the Western Irafhc Association reconvened to-day the trouuie over sugar rates to Kansas points was quickly settled. The Atchison aud the Missouri Pacific the only lines that bad held out agaiust Chairman Midgley's ruling agreed to withdraw the unauthorized tariff?, and a brief resolution to that eflect was adopted. Tins was all that was demanded by the complain ing roads east of the Missouri River and they were satisfied. It does not matter to them what the outcome of the fight betweeii the Kansas lines and the Kansas Railioad Commission ers may be. They have refused to bear any portion of the burden im posed on the Kansas lines by the Staete athorities, aud there thiir interest ends. A meeting of the Transiuissouri Association will be held at Kansas City to-day, when it will be decided whether the original or the committ ee's reduction on fifth-class rates in Kansas shall he obeyed or dutested. HEADEND COLLISION. The south bound M., K. & T. was something like two hours late this morning as the result of a wreck which occurred in Illinois last night. Further than that no lives were lost and that the accident was a headend collision between two freights on the C. B. & Q. No particulars could be learned. Post Office Inspector Hank, of St Louis, was in the city yesterday. He was much pleased at the manner in which the office was conducted at this point. j UNDER AltltEtT.

An iuvestigi-i tion soon showed that the tragedy was the rtsult of a colored cannibal at the house of a notoii oua colored woman known as "Aunt" Jane Grig-bv. Among those at the house were Pnul Euder?, Blanche Connor, "Bony George, Thomas and Joe Peters. All the par;nrs present were negroes cxcmi: the Connor girl, who was of mulatto ud Cherokee descent at.d a r- inarkably handsome young woman. All were under tie influence of Inuor, aud during the earlier part of the night Bhuche whs playing a piano, later she discov ertd that Peters had about S50 ou his person aud impar ed ihe information to Enders and "Bony George." A row ensued, which is suppesed to have beeu really an attempt ou the part ot the three to rob Peters. He ran fn-m the house, followed by the trio, and at 1 oclock in the mormug his deac body was found near the state line. The next day Enders and Blanche Connor were arrested, but "Bonv George" succeeded in eluding the of ficers aud n ) clue to his exact where about could be secured until recent ly. Paul Euders was first tried for the murder aud the jury disagreed. Th trial of Blanche Connor lollowed aud on almost exactly the same evidence she was convicted of murder in the hrst degree. Judge Whit" held spu tencc in abeyance awaiting the result ot Ibe lenders case. Un his second trial Euders was ai quitted. Again followed the trial ot rsinnciie, again the evidence was almost the same. bu the jury disagreed. In view of End ers' aequitt'd aud owing to trou b!e in getting witnesses tne cse against htr was finally dismissed by Prosecuting Attorney Withers. The tvidence in all tbe trials, how evt-r, pointed strongly to the fact that although Enders aud Blanche Connor might be accomplices, the real slayer of Joe Peters was "Bjny George" lnoma8. lie was seen by at leas: two persens to knock Peters down aud ihe next morning was trying to cover with enow the blood near the Uruby bouse. Tbe authorities became convinced that "Bony George" wi-b the real murderer, but were unsuccessful in their efforts to apprehend him. Re cently Marshal Stewart obtained clue to his whereabouts and succeeded in locating his man at Little Rock. Yesterday a telegram was received from tbe chief of no ice of Little Rock stating that George had been apprehended on Monday and was now in Jail. Application was sent to Governor Francis Ijst evening for a requisition to secure the return of George to Kan- 888 City Blanche Connor is now serving two years' sentence in the penitentiary tor shooting at one Ida Wnittsidt-s. Paul .uders lia3 served a term in the county jail since his acquittal for murder, lor assault. There is a man," said a veteran railroader to the Gossiper this morn ing, as he pointed to Conductor Har vey Smith, who hid just stepped fmm tbe south bound Katy "there is a man who for thirty years has been employed in the service, and yet he told me the other day that he lnd never vei reciveu so mueii as ai scratch. 'Harv' used to be an engi-i neer, and on one occasion lour freigl cars were nurien maiiiy over the en gine cab, but he wss not injured in the least. He afterwards told me that le could hear the very wheels buzz as they went Hying through the air. He has been a passenger conductor for ten years. iNot in a hundred cases will you find a man who has been so for tunate as Harv bmith." Governor Francis is a most excel- ent gentleman and a good governor. but he made a mistake in not submit ting the university question fully to the legislature, ft is tbe people of Missouri who speak through the legisl ature. This is the opportunity for creating a magnificent univesity and genuine agricultural college. The imes showed three years ago that the agricultural college was a pretense while connected with the university. he farming interests have a right to emand an honest return for what has been given to the agricultural college. and the whold state has a right to i c t i adopt means for enlarging the useful- nets of the university, Kansas City Timet, WHAT IS YOUR SUPERSTITION?

He once told Patrick Egan that he believed if tho national color of Ireland was changed from green to blue that country would soon become an independent nation, and that the cau.-o would never bo successful while its adherents held to the green em blem. The ancient national color of Ireland was blue, but was changed to green to signify tho union of Orange men and Catholics, the blending of blue and orange producing green. The story has been told amon; some of Parnell's friends that Mrs. O'Sliea's jewel casket contained au emerald ring. A DOCTOR SHOULD BE A COOK. The Frying Fan Orim Undoes All 11 AccomplNliet fur IIU ratlent. In somo parts of Europe the im pression prevails that a physician's training is not complete until he has become an expert in cooking, ana tho iU-a is not a bad one, says Dr. Oh-mann-Dumeusil in the St. Louis Globe Democrat. At one of the colleges in which I ftudiod tho policy was much favored, and there were lectures on how to prepare food to suit the differ ent constitutions. Every one admits nowadays that bad cooking, and espec ially the indiscrimate use of the frying pan. is one of the commonest causes of dyspepsia, and many a time a doc tor will go on describing remedies without effect, simply Imjiuhso tho cook is undoing all the good he effects by calling upon tho weak Momach to do what it cannot possibly perform. 1 ncrc are very few articles of food that must be absolutely bani.-5ied from tho invalid's room, the exceptions bo ing chiefly immature meats: and when all doctors learn how to cook as well as how to prescribe this fact will be generally admitted.
