Tdf( ^fen Closr Kanlis in Kansax But Writer Thinks Voters HBTC Minds .Madt* I'jt. 'f'opeka, Oct. 7.—Newspaper men and others who trailed Bryan on his (rip through Kansas say he did much damage. He not only hehied the Democrats, but ho,hurt "Bull Moosers." Bryan is this yeai: playing both ends ag.iinst the middle. In "Bull Moose" territory he Is flaying Roosevelt. In Taft (erriiory he Is (aking It out of 'Bi;; Bill." His Kansjis itinerary was through the Fifth, Fourth and Kluhtb districts, where "Bull Moosers" are thickest, and the bystanders say that what be did to Theodore was a caution. Men who followed both trolls say William bad much the better of Theodore In the matter of enthusiasm and drew just as well. As a matter of fact, the Roosevelt meetln{;s were cold although be drew enormous crowds. In Lawrence, where he made a rear platform speech, not a ripple of applause broke the qniet which followed his talk. Henry Allen told a Topeka friend the day following Roosevelt's Topeka speech that the crowd was not with the Colonel. He got them Into the Auditorium but he couldn't make 'cm holler. Still, Topeka probably is not a typical Kansas community in this camjiaign. The town Is as cold as a doc's nose toward the Colonel and his theories. ' One thoronghl.v seared Congressman followed in the wake of Bryan's whirlwind trip. His pame-is Victor Murdock. Murdock thought be was in pretty pood shape in his district. So did almost everybody else. But Bryan drew such crowds and awakened such enthusiasm (hat Victor began to drip moisture at Lindsborg and was bathed in prespiration when Bryan concluded his second speech in AVIchita. In Wichita. Bryan with one eye on Murdock. said any man who <>ndorsed Roosevelt's trust proeram was unfit to go to Concress. When the crowd cheered wildly Victor remenjbored that he had endorsed it. Nobody outside the eighth district seems to know who is ninrtingagainat Murdock. His n -Tin" is .lobn Saunders, which is about :ill Ibe dfrmite information about him the writer has been able to obtain. TIKIS'^ who irekcil with Bryan tliroiichout the Fifth think Helverinc and Ree.q h«>ateii bands down. They think Murdock still has thf bettor of it in (be Kigbth. but concede the possibility of an utiset. Another countrv paner of consider- nhle pVestlgc and Influence that has broken step and fallen out of the r .Tnks is Henry C.^lnan's Trov Chief. Calnan is" rakine the "Bnll Moosers" fore and aft. The attitude of the Chief is more slgnincant because the paper has always followed Cy Inland politically.

It doesn't either. 1 • .1. N. DoIIey, from his eminence ajs | | chairman of the Republican state com j mittee, says the sffuatioii Is "satisfactory." As a matter of fact, the situation is not "satisfactory" to either Republicans or "Hull .\foosers" on th"! state ticket. Tho/Republican org:ini- • xaiion in Kansas has not faced a situation so unsatisfactory and uncertain since 189H. And tbtit is the real truth of the matter. Such energy as Mr. Dolley has conserved he is bev^lng (o the election of the "Hull Atoosers" on the tickrt. He hasn't mentioned any of the other candidates as yet. His literature has so far failed to disclose the fact that Charles Sessions. W. K. Havis. John OawTion. or any other candidate who has not espoused the cause of Theodore, is running for anything.
