TOPKKA, Kan.. April 10.—[Special.]— Tis the unexpected which happens, Everyone knew that the federal' build ing crowd would spring some new scheme. I said that Morrill would be out of the race if his managers failed to carry Shawnee county. I have re cently heard it quietly hinted that Cy Lelaud was afraid that Shawnee was not with him in this deal. Morrill would have published his withdrawal several days ago but that would spoil the game of his managers. They would not allow him to act upon his own judgment. If he withdrew it •would turn the cattle loose, and they would have nothing to trade on. As soon aB the result was known here, Dick Walker and George Findlay started for Wichita, leaving Cy Leland to care for their victim. As soon as they could reach the Windy Wonder the press agent there was notified of a 'great, spontaneous uprising" of the citizens of that county, and that Are LEADERS in all things pertaining to SKt^ That the Morrill managers turned the interest of the Public, and their shelves are «pi?™?^'?»y.™«>°»-dtomake WE 6:30 Except on Saturdays. always filled with new and desirable goods at the lowest prices.

At 10c 75c the deal is absolutely beyond question. The Wyandotte boys were against them, and their defeat in Shawnee had demoralized their forces in Leavenworth county, the failure of War "in the county was a positive condition, and there was nothing to be done but bring out a new man and transfer their forces to him. They had angered the friends of both Wright and Barker, so that there was no hope of securing any pledges from either of those men. In the desperation of the'situation Dick Walker told the boys to keep Morrill on his feet, and ordered George Findlay to go with him. The rest of the in cident is already a matter of political history. But the last condition of this gang is worse than the first. A prominent financer, standing very high in business circles of this and eastern cities, in talking over the trade to-day, told me that he was a Morrill man because he believed it would st.-engthen the credit of Kansas to el- leot him to execute the laws of the state. "But," said he, "this trade lets me out. These fellows can't deliver me, to anybody!" What will the good prohibition Re publicans, who have been Morrill fol lowers, say to Murdock? What will those old war horses of the party, who have stood like a phalanx in the past two years, sa y at having Judge Wall select and bring out their gubernatorial candidate? What will the friends of Barker and Wright and Smith say to this demand that they get off the track—get out of the way, our nag is now in the race!' What have these men done that they should thus demand that the whole state . shall make obeisance to their ill? Have they always been found on the front line "doing and dying" for the party which they now presume to control? What did they but two years agone? Where was Wall "when the lights went out in '90? Was ho on the Republican ramparts rallying his followers to the standard of the party he now dictates to? Sedgwick county in the last state election cast 9,173 votes, of which 1,907 was for the Republican candidate for governor! Sedgwick county east 9,104 votes in the last congressionol election, of whleh 3,800 were for the Republican candidate! Judge Wall and his gang not only refused to support the candidate nominated by the Republican party, but they voted and worked for the enemy. Judge Wall not only voted and worked for the soekless statesman, but he and his followers contributed large ly to his campaign fund. These are cold facts, which the Republicans of the state cannot forget in a night and a day. The fight for the Republican nomination for governor is to-day between Murdoek and the field. His friends, backed by the contract to deliver for concessions promised the Morrill following, have ordered the party in other parts of the state to pull off their horses, that they are after the stakes in this race, and will brook no contest. But the race will be hotly contested and the nag from Wichita, with poor wind, heavy hobbles and uncertain gait, will not even get under the wire. WHAT ISTO BE DONE WITH IVE67 featxirc of the dilemma. Thero are a goodly number of " patriots who are going to raise a storm if their claims are not recognized, and many of them are not In the fullest confidence of Dick Chase and hla associates. The truth is that there will be more bad temper displayed by this class of the Alliance than by all the Democracy in the whole state. Some of them hare concluded that it is now or never, and they are going to insist upon immediate recognition. But in all this squabble there is but little attention paid to the "principles." All ts lost sight of in the rush for place. Elder and Willitts core nothing about whether Ives subscribes to the "principles" or not, but they are afraid that he will be taken and they left. That is all there is to it. Just svhat the managers of the Democrats and Alliance have determined upon is past finding but. I am good at guessing myself, but I prefer to wait until something can be seuu in the air that will indicate the direction of the breczS. I do know that both sides are in frequent consultation, and oetween the pow-wows each side is partioxilar to make general denouncement of the other fellows. They will slip away to another session of the inner circle The most pronounced declaration made by any Democratic' sheet in the state against fusion was by the Topoka Democrat. But that was also the only paper in the state advocating Hill. You can draw your own inferences. Pension Agent Bernard Kelly, who has been seriously sick for several weeks, is thought to be sligthly im proved this morning. But he is very dangerously sick yet, and his intimate friends are very much alarmed over the possible resnlt. The disease effects the muscles and veins of the throat, and is of a character which baffles the most skillful practictioners. Very few people have been allowed to see him during the week, and the physicians are in almost constant attendance. The work in the pension office has been arranged for, and will go on just as though Mr. Kelly was there in person He is of such a lively, energectic dte- posltinu, and was so strongly determined to keep on his feet and'not give up, which made his case more stubborn and difficult when he did call a physician. The agitation of a larger hall in Hutchinson, by the NEWS, is timely and should receive a quick and hearty espouse. If Hutchinson had such an assembly hall she would stand a good chance of getting many large meetings which now go to other points. Those who attended the Grand Army encampment In Hutchinson a year go discovered how deficient she was in good hulls. No one thing will work such benefits to a city as the fact that she supplies good and commodious meeting places for conventions and gatherings. In the matter of public halls—places for accomodating conven tioi\s and large gatherings of citizens Hutchinson is a little behind, and shoiild make haste to regain her righ ful position. A single day should not be lost in setting on foot the move ment to provide the needed hall. The main banquet room was elaborately decorated for the event this morning. Covers will be laid for one hundred guests, and short speeches and few of them will be the rule. Ex- Governor Beaver of Pennsylvania presides, and Justices Harlan and Brewer of the supreme court, Senators Voorhees of Indiana, Quay of Pennsylvania, and Hon. William M. Springer will be among the guests. The other banquet is tendered by the Chamber of Commerce to Whitelaw Rcid, ex -minister to France, and will take place at Delmonlco's. This is an unusual token on the part of that organization, which very seldom expresses its opinion of officials in high public places. The banquet was tendered, however* on the ground that Editor Reid had performed a signal service to the commercial interests of the country, that he has represented thiB government with ability and credit, that he has succeeded In extending and'broadening the field of commercial intercourse of the United States with other nations, and that he has thereby enhanced the dignity and importance of his own country, and won the con fidence and esteem of his follow citizens. Five hundred guests will sit down to the spread, the entire arrangement for which are in the ohands of a trio of such eminent citizens as Clmun- cey M. Depew, Cornelius M. UlisH and Gon. Horace Porter. THE DEED OF A MADMAN. A Spanish Priett Killed While Kneeling at the Altar. The Coming Wheat: Crop. TOLEDO, O., April 18.—During the past four days a commission firm hos received 2,000 crop reports from grain dealers of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, 1111 nois, Kansas and Missouri, which raise two-thirds of the winter wheat crop of the United States. The reports show that the present prospects are for an average wheat crop in the states named Michigan reports the best prospects, being above the average, while Indiana and Illinois show nearly as well. Ohio promises below the average as do Kansas and Missouri, from which reports ire not quite complete. The prospects are somewhat less favorable than a year ago. The prospects have improved in all of the states since two weeks ago when the agricultural bureau report for April was gathered. Indiana shows tho most improvement, and Missouri the least. Overo two-thirds show from small to decided improvement, owing to more favorable weather. There was a much smaller amount of winter killed than usual, nearly half reporting that none had been. There is about a quarter of the last wheat crop remaining in those states. Michlgan. reports the largest percentage, Ohio 1 and Indiana next, while Illinois and Missouri have the smallest. Farmers are not selling at present, partly owing to bad roads A large majority say they will sell next month If pros- pectB of the growing crops do not become worse, but a quarter of the reports say the farmers are now disposed to carry their surplus over unless rices improve.

TOPEKAI Kan., April 16.—[Special.]— | Thero is troublo in tho star chamber over the problem of what to do with Ives. It is woll understood that on more than one occasion he has claimed that he never was an Alliance man, but that the Alliance placed him in I nomination, under tho implied understanding that the Democratic convention would endorse the nomination. He on one occasion during the last I session told some members who were [demanding that he assist with some of their calamity schemes, that he did not owe them anything.

J., April 10.—Whether or not "Count" William D. Kooehejay, the Camden bigamist, ought to-go to prison for five years is the question that Chief Justice Beasley is trying to determine to-day on a writ of error. The "count," who has been- for years a well known figure among the young, would-be bloods of Philadelphia, some time ago married the only daughter of James M. Scovel, a- noted lawyer and politician of Camden. Some time after the marriage it was doyeloped that he had previously been tied to a Philadelphia woman. As a result of this disclosure ho left Camden and returned to live with his wife in tho Quaker city. There upon he was arrested at the instance of wife number two, and extradited across the Delaware. JuBt hero an extraordinary state of affairs arose Counsel Seovel's young son, who isalso a member of tjhe bar, prosecuted the case in defense. of his sister's honor, while the bigamist was defended by the injured woman's father, the re doubtable Jim Seovel himself, who took the ground that the Philadelphia wedding had not been clearly proven beyond peradventure,. and anyhow that it would not do his daughter any good to have the man that had betrayed her sent to prison. Kooehejay was held to the criminal court but he skipped again, and when the triui came on he was not to bo found and the proceedings went on in liis absence. As before the BOH prosecuted in behalf of his sister and the extraor dlnary scene was witnessed of a father replying to the argument of his son.aud in doing BO indirectly damning his daughter, but the efforts of the son prevailed. The bigamist waB con victedand sentenced to five-years in Trenton penitentiary. Shortly after conviction he put in an appearance from Philadelphia, where all the time he had been living with his other wife, and claimed that the trial was illegal on the ground that he had not been present in court. His alleged father- in-law secured for him a stay of pro ceeilings, and then tho writ of error which is being considered" to-day Meanwhile the son, by swearing ou a warrant on a new charge, has prevented his release on bail. iCUeets of Organization.]!

Interrupted by a Tragic Krent—A Maniac Ku«he» ftpori Father Marti and Stab* Him to Death—A Wo. mnn Killed by » Ilnltet from a Bevnlv. er In the Hand* of the-Frenaled Murderer. MAI>I.I», April .10. —A most horrible deed was committed yesterday in a church at Anglesola, a village in the province of Lerida. The usual services of Good Friday were being observed and the church was filled to its utmost capacity with devout worshippers. Everything was calm as became the solemn ceremonies .and Father Marti, the priest in charge of the parish, was kneeling at the altar. Suddenly, without a word of warning, n man armed with a revolver and a short Bword sprang out from behind the pulpit to the left of the altar, where he had been concealed, and rushed upon the priest, brandishing his' sword. Father Marti, whose back was to the congregation, seemed to have instinctive warning that danger threatened him, and he partly turned his head in the direction of othe man, but ho was tx> Into to do more than to raise his hand and attempt to ward off the blow he saw aimed at him. The man stood over hia kneeling victim, and in an instant the priest lay dead in front of the altar where he had long served. The assassin's blow had struck the back of his neck and the keen blade had almost severed his head from his body. Tile corpse fell forward and a stream of blood poured down the altar steps. By this time tho people realized the awfulncss of the tragedy they had just seeu onacted. Women shrieked in terror, and many of them fainted. Some of tho more cool-headed men in attendance at the services made an attempt to aeize the murderer, but they were thwarted by the assassin, who had armed himself with a revolver for just such a contingency. Levelling his weapon right and left he drove hlB would-be captors to seek safety in flight. One woman shrinking and Touching close to the altar rails was hit by one of tho bullets. She uttered most piercing shriek, threw up her hands and fell doad to the floor. The worshippers were panic stricken. A general rush was made for the doors and many of the people were thrown down and trampled upon by excited throngs behind them. Several of them were quite seriously injured in this manner, among the number being Home children who it is believed will die. The assassin, whose revolver waa now emptied, sprang into tho fleeing, crowd and wielding his sword, still ripping with the blood of tho massacred priest, he slashed right and left cutting his" way to the street. The crowd huddled closer together to avoid the vicious blows aimed at them, making as far as possible a clear path for the murderer, but quite a number of them were hit by the sharp weapon and was dangerously wouudod. Once he reached the street the assassin started ou a run and soon vanished. Thus far every effort to capture the murderer has been vain, but search has not been abandoned. No reason It known for the crime, and it is believed by almost'every one that the man was 'nsane. A. German Poet'e lllrthday, NBW YOBK.

LONDON, April 16;—A quarter of a million of dollars a week in wages will be lost to the operatives in the cotton spinning district of Lancashire by tho shut-down which goes Into effect at the close of the working hours to-day. About a month ago the operatives of the enormous mills at Hlialybridge made a demand for extra, pay, claiming that their pay vus materially reduced through the use of poor cotton. The demand was refused by the bosses and they were sustained in this section by the Federation of Master Spinners. There- npon they decided to close the factories throughout tlie entire district,thus depriving the general body of operatives of the power to sustain tho Stalybridge movement out of their wages. The lockout affects about twelve thousand spinners, while about seventy- five thousand workers in other bralaches of the cotton or allied industries with either have to ceaae work or be put on half time. The Spinners' union proposes to fight to the end, and has issued an appeal for support to the trade unionists of the United Kingdom. The Northern Met tier*. LKDOKKWOOD, N.
