THIS BIG CORS£T SALE CONTINUES ALL WEEK New York Store BIGGEST IN 8 YEARS REPUBLICAN RALLY AT FORT SCOTT A GREAT'SUCCESS. Congressman Scott and Mr. Stubbs Talked to Responsive Crowds Last NiQKt. PEARSON ISWRATHY Don't Like Intimation in Story Wichita Paper That He May Have Slew ^is Own Wife. The Daily Okliinonian. (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.) says of iho Harry Parker case: Harry Pearson, hiisband , of Mrs. Pearl Pearson, who is alleged to have been murdered by Forrest Mincle, alias Harry Parker, brands the insin- nations that he is guilty of the murder of his own wife through jealousy, published in a Wichita paper, as "rot- t .enest nonsense." He believes that it is merely an intangible, far reaching and straw grasping effort of the imprisoned man to escape punishment. "The talk is ridiculous." said Pearson last night. 'In tlieir mad effort to make Parker n. hero In.-^tead of a tnurderer, th^y umlerlake to create a jealousy In ine which never existed. I know that my wife was acquainteil with Parker, or .Mingle, but conaldor- ed him a sweetheart of Daisy Maun, my aister-in-hnv, in lola. K.ius. lie was at my home on tln> morning of September 14. two days before my wife shot. nn«1 I had prosumcil lu* had left town. I am sure 1 ufvor recognized in him a rival or an iiiterlon- er. I considered him a friend of my wife's family and accorded just ."^uch treatment as such a friendKhip. "Any irfjuiry as to my actioi\s on the day of the murder is invited, i was at home during the entire aClor- noon waiting for the return of >rrs. Pearson, who had proviously declared she would come in time for uie to attend the ball game. I do not believe tliat anyone familiar with my domestic life wMT accuse me of jeal- on .5y or harsh treatment. It is simply a Tic.ious grab at a possibility. "Kansas newspapers have been con­ fused into asserting that I went to liJnid when Parker was in the custody of Sheriff Sam Campbell, when as a matter of fact, C. C. Luccock, a bro- ihr-in-law of my wife, accomi)anied by an Oklahoman newspaper man m.ndo the trip -and failed to identify the iSrisoner. Thi.s, with other statements made by Wichita papers are as chimerical and illogical as the causes upon which they are basedj "They no doubt will have every op- jiortnnity during the trial of Parker lo show my actions, as the prosecution will have to show Parker's. At least I have never undertaken to conceal from newspapers or private par- tics any information that I possess v,-hich would lead to the correct solution of the murder. I have always figured Parker guilty because the three separate statements made by my wife before she died together with the dictated statement written at the Purnam home all iinsltively declared I'aiker the wretch who slew hf^r, not for lust, but a few paltry diamonds." Harry Pearson is in almost daigj- {•ouferiMice with the county attorney's olllce. and t-l;e sheriff's department. WHiat other eviilence the stale may li.'ive against tlie alleged nuirderer is not discussed by them. .•\ bi,' lot of Pit-Pat t'.uuly just rc- leived af- Murrell's drug store.

STANDARD OIL COMPANY The Fort Scott Republican of this morning says: The biggest political rally held In Fort Scott in eight years was that of the Republicans last night. A par* ade ncQrly three blocks In length pre ceded the meeting at Convention bail where nearly two thousand people heard Congres.sman Scott and W. R .<^tubbs make two excellent addresses .•\ lorchllglit procosHlon of nearly two hundred torches was formeil Jif RepubllcHn hendqunrters shortly be fore eight o'cU»ck. The Lincoln Vol ers Taft niid Sherman club and the band headed the procession and It was Riven lo the Taft and Sherman club to bring up the rear of tbo parade The Hue of March was from Republl can headquarterH on Knst Wnll street to Main, south on Main to Second west, on Second to .\ationnl avenue .south on National avenue to Ttiird and east, on Third to convention hall The procession was nearly three blocks in length. If; was an affair strongl.v remindful of the days of '96 \when nearly every night saw a.rally of one of the politi cal parties. There was boundless en thusiasm. The biggest crowd of the present campaign occupied the hall when City Attorney S. .T. Mc.Williams, who was chairman of the evening, announced the colored glee club for a campaign song. The club made a strong hit with the crowd and was recalled for an encore. Mr. JlcWilliams[made a neat little speech before he presented Congressman Scott as the first speaker. He rapped the Democratic party in general and Mr. Bryan in particn lar and paid a compliment to Mr. Taft. .Mr. Scott was warmly received.and after paying a tribute to the Ijincoln voters, be predicted that the young men who vote this year for William II. Taft will look back with similar pride to their first act on the ballot. Mr. Scott spoke of his own candidacy for er-election. stating that ho was ready to answer for cverj- action of h:5 in congress. He referred to talk about Cannon, which the Democrats l :ave put up against him and ho was warmly applauded when he said that he propo.sed to vote for a man for speaker whom he thought was the right man for the place, when the time comes, a year from now. for him to do so. Mr. Scott spok<' for over an hour and ilield the close attention of his audience and was frequently interrupted with cheers. His tribute to Mr. Stubbs was the cause for an ova lion for the gubernatorial candidate. He closed with an eloquent tribute to the work of the Republican party. The glee club sang two more selections at the conclusion of Mr. Scott's address, and then Mr. McWIlHams, after referring to the work of recent years in Kansas politics, introduced Mr. Stubbs. the next governor. Mr. .Stubb .t; josf no time in getting busy on his speech' although he had to wait a little bit for the cheers that greeted him to die down. Mr. Stubbs expressed hi.-* admiration for Kansas people, on whom be .said he had been practicing oratory two or three times a day for .several months. Ho threw .some boquets over in Mr. Peoft's dt roction and tlien said h<> w.iiit <^d to pay a little attention to the presidential candidates and then quit. • • • Mr. Stubbs then sketched in a forceful manner the career of Mr. Taft from the time he was appointed solicitor general of the United States un til the present, and made an eloquent idea for his re-eloction. He referred In closing, also to his wish for th« election of the Itopubllcan legislative candidates in this cotmty. .\ffer .Mr. \3tubbs closed Prof. .T. E. Stokesberry made a ,5 !hort talk on the Barnes high school law. That Kansas Whiskey. Kansas whiskey has long been held up to ridicnle as a product of shelled peas, and ca .venne pepper, but the first gentiine liquor recipe to come to light was captured by the Wichita police in a raid on a 2 per cent joint yesterday. One reciiM?. which was compounded into common whiskey, .selling at sL\ bits the pint, called for the following ingredients: Powdered opium, sulphuric acid, cayenne pepper, tincture of cannabis Indica,. rainwater and alcohoJ. Another recipe called for ca.venno pepper, laudanum, prickly ash. rain water and new •whiskey.^ • This. was -sold as chemically inire whiskey.

Sbeppard. editor of the Trackman, a weekly periodical published- at Fort Scott. Kansas, last week published the following sensational political information: "An election is coming on <ind the people have marked George W. Kanavel and Charles Ryker for slaughter at the polls. These two men will surely be beaten for re-election; their only hope is to throw the people off their gimrd by now pretending that they want the Mis.souri Pacific Railway company, in Kansas, to make its tracks safe.' The people will mark you as other corpora lion tools have been marked. You have been unfaithful to the people :ind they will robulcc you." .lake Sheppard is a rabid Di ^moorat. a pretended frrend of tne Railroad trackmen, and the head of an organization Uttown as the ".National Track- mens' I'nlon." This organisation is nntap^nnlstlc to and not Pliglble to membership In the American •pedoratlon of I*nbor, or entitled to afllllale with the Kansas Stale Federation of Labor. The In ternational Brotherhoofl of Mainten ancp of Way Employees' is the track­ men's union orgnni7 .ntion recognized by the AmericanFederatlon of Labor, and in an article publi.shcd in the 'Advanced Advocate', Its official organ. Vice President Lowe had the following to say.—in reference t<> Mr Sheppard.—-.-Mjout five years ago a Lawyer at Fort Scott, Kansais. butted into the l.ibor union business by sending broadcast the Uiiifcd States printed leaflet.s and circular letters calling upon the track­ men to send him one dollar each to pay initiation fees and dues for one year in his propo.sed trackmen's Union. '•Although five .vears have passed and although, the T^awyer has had the dues of his members increased from one dollar to two dollars per year, he has failed to obtain a trade agreement or recognition for his union on a single road or s.vstem. but his promises of something going to ho done in the future are as plentiful and alluring a deceptive as ever. This evidence ?;hould help any who have been doped out of a dollar or two to see how they were."' Following this are statements signed by the l.-ocil T.«bor ITnion.s at Fort Scott showing up the scheme .Mr. .Like Sheppard is working on the most., poorly paid of all Railway employees. ' Miv Sheppard. acting for his ]»re- tended labor union, sought to secure recognition for its members by the Mi.ssouri P.ncific Railway Co., such Company having in its employ many thousands of men belonging to the recognized trackmen's union. "The International Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees', refused to recognize Mr. S^heppard's dual or­ ganisation. Upon this refu.sal on the part of Mr. Sullivan, General Manji- ger of such Company. Mr. Sheppard. in a very sensational grandstand manner .attempted to force Mr. Sullivan to make such recognition and desired the Kansas Railroad Commission to act as the cat's paw to pull his chestnuts: this the K.-insas Railroad Commission refuso/i to do.' and thi.s refu.sal on the part of the Railroad Commission is the foundation for Mr. Sheppard's statements that Messrs. Kanavel and Ryker are corporation tools and are doomed to slaughter at the polls. Immediately prior to their election as .Members of the Railroad Commission. Mr. G. W. Kanavel had concluded four years of honorable service as a member of'the State Board of Charities, this Board having charge of all the State charitable in- stitution.s, and Mr. Ryker had concluded five years of honorable .service as County Treasurer of Reno County. iFacb man had. not only his local County Delegation, but delegations of surroundhig couniie.s. standing firm for their nomination to their present positions. These two mem hers have, at all times, acted in hearty accord with ear'h oth^r and a re view of the things accomplished during thelr'two years of service on the Board will cause no one of their many friend-s to regret th*» support given them for their nomination and election. The following are among the more important official acts of the Board: The establishment of the two cent Passage Fare: The promulgation of a revised Kansas Dsltance Tariff, operating as approximately an l.S per cent reduction under present distance tariff rates; The securing of a reduction in coal rates from mines in Colorado to stations in Kansas and from Mines a| Leavenworth to Stations in Kansas: i Tbe neaarieniBntv tint 1A» TI BIA WHAT GRANDMA AND GI^NDPA m IS TRUE.
