Too Many Men Demand that Places he Provided for Them—The Alliance and the People's Party—The Republican Gubernatorial Contest—How Ollck Wan Downed by the Sallna Convention—Ro- publican Primaries. TOPEKA, Kan., April 33.—[Special.]— From a prominent People's party official, who is over the state much, I learn that the fusionists are going to have a hard contract on their hands. He said it was to be a clear cut fight between the demagogues and the members who were in the party for principle. He would not make a guess, but said many of the country delegates would not favor fusion. He said that Ives stood no show in the gubernatorial race, and if he knew what was a wise course he would stop all the talk about it. If Ives goeB after a renomi- nation of course he would get that,' but should he cut loose and run for something else, he would be left out too quick. He said if Ives was not re nominated, Noah Allen of Wichita, would get the place. He admitted that P. P. Elder was a problem not yet solved, but he supposed he would have to be taken care of. Willetts had a good job and a certain thing, and he was well satisfied to let well enough alone. The Democrats at Washington city arc printing fifty thousand copies of Jerry Simpson's free trade speech and are going to scatter them over the Big Seventh. If there is anything which will help the Republicans among the farmers of the great Arkansas valley, it is that free trade speech; It is certainly the worst break yet made by the fellow, because he simply advocates the going into the grain and pork raising in direct competition with the pauper labor of 40-inch silk Sublime, best grade, Ik 32-inch Fancy China Drapery Silk, Genuine Shanghai Pongee, wash silk, Bl'k and cream pure Japanese Habutai wash silk, from 75c to [32-inch plain China ;ilk, v all colors, 24-in Monarch FailleSilk, black, wear guaranteed, P.MARTIN & CO. The Only One Price Cash I House in Hutchinson. Mail order Department. Attention BtrioVandjarompt] India" and South America. It has just come to light through some o* the Alliance papers of the south that the atato executive committee of the Georgia Alliance, at a recent meeting, "unanimously passed a resolution demanding that all sub- alliances which have endorsed the Poo- pie's party movement must promptly rescind such action- or surrender their chartors." Now this is getting down to business, without any foolishness. How soon will such orders be issued to the sub-Alliances in Kansas and other Re- ..pabliean states? They are all under one national organization and under the same constitution and working for the same "grand principles." Surely they will not make such a discrimination in the Democratic states. Did not the same order go out to all the sub- Alliances in the south as well as the north, to hold these meetings all on a certain day, and endorse the St. Louis platform? But the same leaders order very different action by the sub-Alliances in the north from those in the south. It is wonderful the number of self sacrificing patriots to be scared up in the Big Seventh district by beating the bushes just a little. Nearly every county in that fourth of the state has from one to three candidates. This state of politics is very annoying to some of the candidates. These counties may be strongly in favor of some particular candidate for governor, but an expression of such preference in convention would compromise the chances of their favorite son, so there is nothing said. The Morrill strikers who have been engineering the Murdock circus have taken advantage of the sit uation and have been claiming right and left. I have seen a list of counties in that part of the state which was claimed to be solid for Murdock, which I have learned on the most reliable information—in many in stances from the delegates themselves—that Murdock will not have the delegations, either for himself or to deliver to Morrill. Ford and Sumner are the only delegations he has up to date, and the former he secured by just a bare majority. The resolution to instruct the Harper delegation for Murdock was voted down by more than two to one. But the orders loft by Walker and Findlay, chief Morrill fix ers, were for the Murdock boys to "claim everything in sight, and let the other fellows fix it up when they can, But gall has been the chief stock in trade with these fellows since they first sprung Morrill The anti-Glick Democrats are boasting that they had the old war horse down at the Salina convention, and that they placed him. at the head of the delegation to Chicago merely out of sympathy. Well, that may be the way they view the incident, but to man up the tree it appears he has carried off about the highest honor in reach of any of his crowd this year, Some of them may be allowed to run for office and contribute to the campaign fund, but he will have the only sure thing in sight, for the Domocrats of Kansas this year. The Wichita Beacon is wiser than some of its Democratic co-workers when it says that fusion is the prope action, and wants both parties to come out openly and above board and fuse upan the basis of a "fair dicision of the officers." It is beginning to fear that the Alliance will pay not the slightest attention to the Democrats, but nominate a ticket, then say to them that if they want to "beat the Republicans, come and vote with us, it is no wores for you to vote all than a part of our ticket. There are more Democrats with us tivTO -w 1th you, no drop your nonsense and help us down our common enemy." That will be about the song. Some of the Linn county boy* say that Ed. Smith' has been kept In the Republican party too loaf already by offices, and that they arc greatly relieved by his taking to the brush. Of course they dislike to loose even one vote, but they cannot afford to give a man the fat of the land just to keep htm in the traces. There are many men much better than he, coming back to the party In that county every day. If a man is such a demagogue as to stay or go on account of an office, he had better leave the party. Republican Primaries. KANSAS CITY, April 23.—The Star's Topeka special says: Republican primaries uro being held to-day in Jeft'er- Bon, Ncosha, Stafford, Rice, Garfield, Greenwood, Kearney, Smith, Decatur and Cherokee counties. There is a hard light in Jefferson between Smith and Morrill. The Smith men are claim • ing that they will be able, to break Morrill's First district forces in this couuty, and have sent workers to all the townships. Farmer Smith is in Topeka and will await the news of today's returns in this city. His friends claim that Cherokee county, which was naturally lexpeeted to go for Baker, will send a solid Smith delegation. Cherokee and Crawford, two of the largest Republican counties in the Third congressional district, held their primaries to-day, and Montgomery the homo of Governor Humphrey, holds its county conventions. Montgomery will send a solid delegation for its favorite son and Crawford county is practically conceded to Humphrey. There is a fight in Cherokee, but Humphrey^ i rionds are confident of success, and claim that the Governor will get a solid delegation from Columbus and carry enough of the townships to give him'a majority of the delegates. A divided delegation, however, is looked for in this county. Labette county primaries are held next Saturday and here the fight will come to a finish, for if Humphrey carries Labette he is practically certain of suoccss. roople's Party Convention. KANSAS CITY, April 23.—A Star's Topeka special says: The People's party convention for the Third congressional district has been called for June 23rd, at Oherryvale, Montgomery county. The Senate. WASHINGTON, April 23.—After routine morning business, Mr. Teller offered a resolution requesting the president to inform the senate what steps, if any, have been taken towards securing an international conference to consider the question of free coinage of silver at the mints of the national participating in such a conference, or | to the enlarged use of silver in the currency of such countries; also all copies of such correspondence between the United States and the governments expected to participate in the proceedings of such International conference. Mr. Sherman suggested the insertion of the words, "if not incompatible with the public interests," and Mr. Teller agreed to the suggestion, although he did not sec, he said, how such publication could hurt public interests. The resolution, as modified, was agreed to. CRIME AND CASUALTY. Horrible Murders Traced Two Russian Brothers. to KILLED BY FALLING WALLS. The Collapse or an Incompleted Court House at Jonesboro, Tennessee, Kcsnlts In the Death ot Three Workmen and the Injury of Four Others—The Wyoming; Troubles—A Fatal Shootlns; Affray. NKW YORK, April 23.—A dispatch from St. Petersburg says that the brothers Koulikovsky, who were recently arrested near Uiclostock, a Russian frontier town, and charged with the murder of a number of Russian cmigants, appear to have carried on for some time pasta wholesale traffic in robbery and assassination. They lived in u village named Monki. the older of the two being the father of a family, and the younger a time-expired soldier. The wife of the former—quite a young woman, and the mother of two children—is charged with aiding and abetting the two brothers in their diabolical plots. The story of their crimes is one of cold-blooded meditation and ruthless cruelty. Living near the frontier, and being intimately acquainted with the movements and regulations of the frontier police, the Konlikovskys developod i\ somewhat extensive traffic in smuggling acroBS the boundary including emigrants, fugitives from justice, deserters from the array and others not furnished with the requisite pass- t... T\ :. iL, !1?„„ Jl„, safe to say that very many more an* archists will be in custody in a few days, and that disturbances, which so many people greatly fear will occur oa May day, will not take place for want of a mob to excite the crowds to riots and • to lead them in lawlessness. Among the anarchist liturature that has fallen into thehands of the police are thirty thousand copies of a May day proclamation, couched in the usual violent rage of anarchists, and urging the people to revolt on the first of May against all constituted authority. The Wyoming Tronblas. DOVOLAB, Wyo., April 23.—Major Feehet's troops, escorting the captive cattlemen, reached Brown Springs last night. It is expected that they will arrive at Feterman this evening or tomorrow morning. Fetterman is on the railroad it is believed to bo the intention to dodge the supposed destination, of Douglass, owing to the fact that a i rood many armed sympathizers with he. rustlers have gathered hero, including "Long Tom" Bird of Glen Rock, who was on the regulators' death list. A dispatch from Chevenne says four officers of the state militia have sent in their resignation and others are expected to follow. Governor Barber's order just before the invasion that the militia will not respond to the sheriff's calls is the cause of dissatisfaction which threatens the practical dismemberment of the state's forces. Will Not Work on Sunday. CHICAQO, April 23.—Work will bo at a standstill on the Women's Christian Temperance Union Temple to-morrow. Last Sunday men were working in neurlv every one of its departments owing to the fact that the contractor is under bonds to complete the edifice by May 1st, aud in default of doing so is liable to heavy damages. The fact, however, created too much public comment, especially in view of the attitude assumed by the organization against the opening of the world's fair on the Lord's doy. Pressure has, therefore, been brought to bear upon the contractor, and as a result the echo of the hammer and chisel will not be heard around the structure to-morrow. So Opposition to the Troops. WASHINGTON, April 23.—Gen. Scho- fleld received a telegram from Gen. Brooke, at Omaha, to-day, saying that Col. Van Home and his (prisoners will reach Douglas to-morrow, and they will there be turned over to other troops for escort to Cheyenne. Gen. Brooke says that no opposition has been made to the movement of the troops and that none is anticipated. The Patent Laws. WASHINGTON, April 23.—The house committee on patents has agreed on an omnibus bill to amend the patent laws of the United States. Representative Buehanan of Now Jersey, will draw up a report on the bill and submit to the house. Fell Heir.to an Estate. JACKSONVILLE, 111., April 23.—John Savage, who has for some time been an inmate of the county poor house, has fallen heir to an English estate valued at over a million pounds. Savage is over 70 years of age and lias a large family. Wm. Itlce's Candidacy. KANSAS CITY, April 23.—The Star's Topeka special says: Wm. Rico of Fort Scott, Is in the city to-day. Without positively authorizing the an- nouncment, he virtually admitted that he would be a candidate for state printer. ^ New llaven Primaries. NKWHAVEF, Conn., April 23.—The Democratic primaries to elect delegates to the state convention were held last evening. Of the fifteen voting preeinets Col. H. G. Osborne captured fourteen, as a delegate to Chicago for Cloveland. Cholera In India, ' CALCUTTA., April 23.—A very violent epidemic of cholera Is raging in Benares. The mortality la very great. Yesterday there were reported 180 new -9 and 13S deaths from the disease. ports. During the prevailing distress however, the profits accruing from this nefarious industry, at no time particularly certain, seriously declined, and the smugglers, emboldened by the success and impunity which attended their operations, conceived the idea of killing the persons who had recourse to their services, in order to possess themselves of their money and other belongings. They selected chiefly as victims small farmers desiring to em igrate to Brazil, these being Invariably provided with their passago money and an outfit of some kind, however slender. The system em ployed was to welcome the travelers with effusive hospitality, and every assurance of ' a safe conduct across the frontier at a point secure from observation on the part of the authorities. Under the pretext that this precaution was necessary to diminish the risk of capture, the emigrants were conducted toward the frontier one by one. The path lay through a dense forest. While one brother acted as guide, the other went on in advance, and lay in wait in a secluded part of the wood. When the appointed spot was reached the two brothers, at a prearranged signal, simultaneously fell upon the unhappy traveler who had entrusted himself to their guidance. To knock him on the head and strip him of all he possessed was then an easy matter. At first the assassins made a point of burying the bodies of their victims, but. their crimes remaining undetected, they grew more reckless, and contontcd themselves with dragging the corpses aside into the brushwood, or leaving them lying in the snow. In this manner they are believed to have made away with some thirty or forty persons. Five naked bodies have already been found, and it is expected that when the snow melts and the woods can bo thoroughly seai'ched many more ghastly discoveries will be made. So far as the police have been able to ascertain, the last victim was a belated peasant who sought shelter in tho Koulikov- sky's hut. In tho middle of the night when fast asleep he was put to death In the most horrible manner for the sake of a small sum of money he had about him. The elder brother took a large pot of boiling water and poured it over the sleeping man's face, thus depriving him of consciousness. Koulikovsky then, assisted by his wife and brother, having been stripped, was hidden away among some straw in the stable. It was accidentally discovered there by a neighbor before the murderers had found a convenient opportunity to carry it into the forest. The Inquiry which was then instituted led to the disclosure of numerous other crimes of tho nature above described, and these are still tho subject of police investigation. The elder Koulikovsky and his wife were arrested on the spot. The younger brother absconded,but was subsequently captured in the woods, and the three miscreants are now awaiting their trial In the prison at Bielostock. They have not yet made any confession. Fatal Hhootlaa Affray. CHICAOO, April 33.—Mm, Madigan, living on Wash avenue, was shot and killed last night by Lewis Powers, a bullet from whoso revolver also proba- ly fatally wounded William Alt. The shooting was the ending of an evening of dissipation. Powers was arreHted this morning after a fierce resistance, in which he attempted to shoot the policeman who found him. Kinnie Henncssy, thenwoman who is said to have been tho causa of the shooting, and who was with him, was also taken into custody, as were five or six other men and women who were witnesses to the affair. Jealousy was the cause of the tragedy. Faced Toward tho Penitentiary. CIIICAOO, April 23.—.Tames W.
