Thi.< .Is the $ub- stanc« of the resolutions ailoptetl 'at the meeting of the .\llen County \\^ publican I^^ague club at its nuvting U> G. A. K. hall last night. The resolutions laud President Taft. endorse Judge Oscar Foust and ask the .>:uPl>ort of all Republicans for the county ticket. The reiwrt of the committee as adopted follows: "Sir. President: "Your committee on resolutions beg^ leave to submit the following: Whereas, At the present time, in the face of unexampled prosperity over all the length and breadth of this great country; with abundant crops: with good prices for both manufactured and agricultural products; with an expanding home trade, and foreign commerce growing; with busy fields and factories, stead}' lemploj'raent and gcod wages for the laborer; with restored confidence to' field and factory; with a well regulated condition which has brought peace and tranquility at home and gbroad, and Whereas.' The present prosperity of this nation and individual is admittedly due to the sagacity, common sense . and good judgment of president Taft, who stands like a rock for the protective principles, and common-sense method of approaching the tariff grob- lera. against the elusive rain-bow promises, and trade destroying "hit- and-m.<8fl" theories of those who op- ]>ose him. and Be It Resolved. That President Taft, • have the Ood-speed of every member of this club, who believes in the principles for which Lincoln died, and who are determined that the sacrifices which tJie nation offered up on the altar of freedom aBd equal rights, to both the white and colored races, shall . not have been made in vain; that we pldftge our undivided supitorl to Presi- dci^;t Taft, believing in his iwlicies, his fjoi^on sense tariff plan, that have brought prosperity for the past three yc^te, Ind condemn the rash and ill- coii^dered attempts by the opiKJsite pai^es, because they are hasty and . impulsive, based on no real facts resulting from careful investigation, and are intended solely for political effect, and Be It Turther Rc.-olved. That v," condemn those that are trying to lead the .American peojile into sloughs of uncertainty and despair, by their specious promises and plausible platitudes, which if tliey prc\-ail, will plunge the country info convulsion, by disturbing the markets, crippling the financial condition and effecting the employed laborer, c Ts:bEyBXMG iiwwF bm bm l.m h Be It Resolved, That we look with dsifavor, ui>i>n the ptate and Congressional candidates, who in party counsel, sought to disfranchise the Taft Republican voters, by aiding abetting and assisting, in the substitution of Roosevelt electors, instead of the Taft electors, on the Republican ticket, thereby seeking by corrupt, and unfair means, to elect a man for President of the United Staes, who is a candidate, under a separate and distinct party, with a policy and political principle adverse to the Republican party, and not in harmony with the great mass of Republican voters, and we believe, that party wreckers should be relegated to political oblivion. Be It Further Resolved, That we recommend to the voters of the 3Tth Judicial District, of Kansas, comjwsed of Allen and Woodson County, that they give to his Honor Oscar Foiist. now presiding Judge, of the District Court, their u^ivided supi>ort in his re-election to tbe important office of Judge. That we believe in his integrity and abiIlo-,..and appreciate his untiring efforts in the enforcement and up-holding of the law, looking to the facts, and applying the law, in a considered opinion. Be It Further Resolved, That in as ma(A ab the leaders of the Democratic party, in this county, are relying on a nilililUitial Republican defection, amooM ttie voters of the county, to the M .«a3ed ; Progressive cause, lioping tlMir^y to succeed in the election of Detnotirata to the putdic Offices of the couiitjr, we hereby recommend that the ReptfMleaa voters of the county, give the candidates on the Republican ticket their undivided support, thereby aaeuring a Republican victory. Be It Further Resolved. Tliat we believe'that the Bull Moose frenzy is abating, and that the disease has pasted the critical point, and the danger of infection is over, and that all Republicans, who have erred in their ways, by endorsing a candidate for President on an opposition ticket, will again return to the Republican fold, and that this nation will contibae to expand, juid frow freater mi betteri under the administration of true Republicans. Respectfullj- submitted. A. F. FLORENCK. PRANK L. TRAVIS. Committee on Resolutions. HttiulH»ldt-nnh,' T «Kk In this connection, the following rt>sulution<! adopted by a meeting of Taft Republicanis at Huml>oldt last evening may be of Interest: Resolutions passed by the Taft Club of Humboldt, Kansas, at its meeting October 21st. The Republican party of Kansas is facing a condition never before met in this country by any party. Our ticket, state, congressional and county, is made up of men whose names were placed on the primary ballots last August as Republicans, whose petitions were signed by Republicans, and who on August 6 were nominated as Republbic^ns. On August 7th. the next day after these men received their nominations as Republicans, a new national party was organized at'Chicago, known as the Progressive party, the declared purpose of which was not only to defeat the Republican candidates for President and Vice-president, but to absorb and annihilate the Republican party Itself. Immediately upon the organization of this new party, many of our Republican nominees espoused its cause, afflliated with its members, are giving their support to its nminees. and yet are claiming the TWM to remain on the ticket of the party they are seek- ine to defeat anq destroy. Unfortunately as it seems, our election and primary laws are such that there is no way by which they can be displaced so that as Republicans, when we go to the polls November 5th. we will find our ticket largely made up of men who are active members of the new party working urgently for the defeat of the Republican party. This being the condition that meets us. we recommend the adoption of the following resolutions. Resolved, that as Republicans we feel that we are fully released from our obligations to support any candidate nominated at the primary in August who is affiliated with and supporting the nominees of the new party. Also. Resolved, that we especially condemn the action of W. R. Stubbs. who for four years has been loudly clamoring "let the people rule" yet when he finds himself more than 1.200 votes thort of a majority, takes advantage of this same unfortunate primary law. and through a technicality, insists that his name must go on- the Republican ticket as a candidate for U. S. Senator, while he is using every means known to, a shrewd politician to defeat the party's nominees. U B. PEARSON, Chairman. . J. L. SHELLMAN. FRED RHODES. S. J. STEWART. B. S. SMITH. The following resolution was introduced by L. B. Pearson and passed unanimously at the meeting. * Resolved, that we condemn in strongest terms the attempted assassination of Ex-President Roosevelt, and urge that his assassin be given the extreme penalty of the law.

Hot Bnlrhen RefiRied to SeU Any Bnt Xalire Meat and Kept Prim Proklblthew (Hy the As».K'iat.Hl l«re!w^ Rerlin. Oct. S3.—Hundreds of Berlin housewives joined In a wild riot today because the butchers at th(\ municipal markets have refused to handle meat Imported so as to reduce the cost of living. The principal trouble occurred in the weddtiig district, which is inhabited by working i>ooplc. Hundreds of women who went to the municiiwl market .hoping to profit by reduced prices, found that the butchers had agreed not to deal In meats by the municipality. They first stormed the butchers' stalls, seized all the native-raised meat, trampled it on the ground and fought with the butchers. The police were forced to close the market. The prices of meat are so high in Berlin that the government recently gave permission to the city autbori- tise to bring in and sell meats from abroad at the city markets and to control i)rices.

Whitcomb, law partner of former Senator Albert J. Bederldge. of Indiaiia, testified to the Clapp committee late today that George W. Perkins, Edward McLean and Gifford Pinchot sent drafts amounting to $57,500 to Beveridge for his 1904 campaign. Perkins had testified that be sent only 110.000 and that Bereridge returned if. Perkins gave $30,000 said Whitcomb. After the campaign Beveridge returned the drafts and checks, said the witness. IS HE A MAX OR A DUMMYI Mr. Arthur Ross Showing In a Wn^ dow, Puzzles the Crowd. The crowds which watched the performance of Mr. Arthur Ross in Perham's window yesterday afternoon and evening while he did his clever Imitation of a mechanical doll, expressed varied opinions. Many would not believe tliat the figure was human, while the scoffers knew better, of course. After watching the set, expressionless face a while, one woman declared that she "pitied his wife," explaining that with such control of his features it would be hopeless to try and detect him in a lie. And a tired- eyed youth offered the suggestion that it was the "best poker face" he ever saw. The impersonation of a mechanical figure is so perfect as to raise a doubt in the mind of any observer. Turning, jerkily on a pedestal, every movement of body and arms and bead seems directed by clockwork and springs . But when the figure buttons up the overcoat which his wife, who is "the Sophomore girl," helps him into, it jars the idea of an automaton. Yet a moment later, w:hen be springs stiffly erect an dresumes the semaphore signal attitude, the closest scru tiny of Uie face falls to discover a dilated nostril or quiver of an eyelash. The exhibition is a unique metliod of advertising sent out by the makers of a certain brand of men's clothes, and Mr. Ross's helpmate, herself wear ing a natty suit, with crayon and paper "blackboard" calls the crowd's attention to the good points of the apparel worn by the statuesque and poz- sline .figure. The exhibition Iiere ends with the performance tooistat and it i> of iBt^est'ftiepfl^Bt COXGRESSMAX TAGRART HERE. Democratic Candidate Will Speak in lola This Evening. Joseph Taggart, who arrived in this county yesterday and held a meeting out at Carlyle i;iEt evening, and who will speak here tonight in the A. O. U. W. ball, was taken to Humboldt in a motor car this afternoon to mingle with the unterrified of that neck of the woods today. John Goshorn, Paul Klein and Frank Forrest went down with him. Mr. Taggart is a resident of Kansas City, Kansas, and was elected congressman from:this district after the death of Alex Mitchell, largely as a result of the rumpus which the Republican Congressional committee stirred up in its anxiety to prevent Mr. Scott from being considered by the voters. In the present contest he is opposed by J. I... Brady of Lawrence, who is for Roosevelt and Johnson, but is "for the entire Republl caii ticket from Stubbs down." Taggart is making a thorough canvass and expresses confidence that he will win. The meeting tonight affords a chance to see and hear him to all who have not before heard him speak.

London, Oct; 23.—Bloody, portentous battles are being fought on every side of the Balkan peninsula today, military experts believe. While the allied armies of Bulgaria. Servia., Montenegro and Greece doubtless liad the l>est of the preliminary skirmishes and continue to -take small Turkish fortreesesl villages and towns, it remains to be seen which side will be mor^ successful in the main theatre of war. Both the Turks and Bulgarians now claim to be adTancl .ng In the vicinity of Adrlanople. Everything seems to indicate tha,t the Bulgarians have de- [.ployed the ibulk of their main army from the Mustapha Pasha-Adrianople line to the Djumbals-KIrk-KiUsseh line and are attacking the Turidsh front between the' last named place and Ad­ rlanople while attacking the extreme Turkish .right to t^^ mqt Of Kirk- Kilisseh. . The Servians are more free w|th "news about their operations and continue to advance. One army has taken the t<mn of Prishtlna and another Is at the gates of Knmanova.
