.'Believes It the Only Feasible System
During th l'resent Financial String-oner
by Which Cities Can Raise
' . Money to Ran Their Local
v Government and Bsliev
Their Burden of Debt.
Topeka, Kan., July 13. Attorney
General Little this morning sent a let
ter to the Rev. A. J. Richards of Fort
Scott in reply to a petition for the ap
pointment of an assistant attorney
general for Bourbon county, in which
This office is overwhelmed with petitions of
the same kind. When one petitions (or the
appointment of an assistant attorney general
another petition will be presented remon
strating attalust it I appointed an assistant
a few days ago for Geary county at Junction
City and yesterday this office was besieged
with parties from the same town aski the
removal of the man I had appointed and they
were all good intelligent men.
But I want to tell you what the trouble is.
Tnese cities are all in debt and the financial
condition of the country being so low and
times so hard, money so scarce and stringent,
the people of these cities have concluded to
acquiesce In the cities collecting license from
thexe Institutions for the purpose - of
paying their taxes, I am inclined to the
opinion that there are plenty of good men in
these cities in favor of the license of these
liquor saloons merely for the purpose of rain
ing revenue. Times are getting harder every
day and the strain upon the cities In collect
lng money to run the cities ana to pay this
vast indebtedness are virtually demand
ing of tbem some process by which these taxes
can be gathered, and they are in a direct man
ner consenting. I find that all these parties
who remonstrate against the appointment of
an assistant attorney general are taxpayers
and their strongest plea Is that these licensed
saloons bring in money enough to pay the ex
penses of the cltv and thereby relieve tbem.
In my judgment if you want morality in a
community you must furnish people a suffi
cient amount of money to do a legitimate bus
iness and to pay their honest debts If this Is
not done men will seek every opportunity and
permit vice and rime to run at large
if from this source thev can collect
money to relieve their overburdened condl-.
tlon. This demand for licensed saloons is
growing stronger every day and will cont.nue
to grow stronger until the people have some
relief and are enabled to net monev to Day
thai taiM unit run th1i rttv 1nriaht.wlnHtt
without resorting to licensing vile institutions.
I saw Mr. Chenault and a committee from
Fort Scott a few days a-o informing me that a
meeting had been bmd for tlif vurpose of pros
ecuting your at' 'rney and yorr sheriff for not
enforoing the liquor law. I have to-day writ
ten the county attorney and the sheriff that
they must do their duty in this respect but
I want to say right here that
with the condition of times as they now are
ana the people Ftraininit every nerve to save
what little they have accumulated in the last
few years tbey will countenance these licensed
Institutions and in my judgment there is no
power under heaven to prevent it. It is like
attempting to drain a fountain by dipping at
If this community wants peace and har
mony, soberness and virtue, they must pro
vide some syetem other than the present, for
not only will saloons run wide open, but will
crime of every conceivable nature become
rampant. Men must live, and if a nation
adopts a policy by which thev are unable to
supply themselves and family with food, murk
you that these people will have it, and starv
ing men will resort to anything.
Attorney General Little, replying
to a communication from Russell
county, decided that a county board
had no right under the constitution to
take money levied for the usual pur
poses of county government and lend
it to farmers to buy see l. He said
further that no act of the legislature
would protect a board or its members
for thus violating the constitution.
This, if the courts should hold it to bo
a good law. would destroy Governor
Lewelling'a scheme to help the farm
cm nf the West a .Inly 4, no told the
people at Wakeeney that tbey ought
to apply to the eouaty board for re
lief, aa it would only te a loan at best,
which they would have to repay and
thui the expense of an extra tension
of the legislature would be saved

Chicago, July 13."Two things are
now working to the gre.. t detriment
of the world's fair. The first is the
open Sunday and the second is the way
in which the railways are maintaining
rates," averted John T. Shayne,
treasurer of the Associate American
exhibitors, just before th' ' ose of the
meeting of exhibitors in terminal
station last n'srht
During the discus: on o ' e attend
ance at the fair, William , .dgewell
of New York, the missionary, obtained
recognition from the president. Then
be launched without warning into a
heated denunciation of the exposition
officials who had thrown open the
gates on Sunday.- The onslaught was
so unexpected that the meeting re
mained quiet until the speaker had
and talked on Sunday cloairfg until itt?
was decided that the association
should In the near future make a for
mal request of the exposition ofllcials
to close the gates on Sunday.
After adjournment Mr. Shayne said:
"The exposition will get about a mil
lion people here on Sundays during the
exposition period, providing as large
crowds come each Sunday as in the
past I doubt if the attendance will
be as large next Sunday as it
was last. The open Sunday plan
has not been a success, and we
believe in abandoning an unsuc
cessful departure when it has proved
unsuccessful Now I believe at least
15,000,000 persons are staying away
from the fair because the gates are
open every day in the week. The
Associated American exhibitors will
not consider the moral gr. ads. We
are all business men and v ant the
exposition run in a L-u-iuess way
which will do the most for the fair."
Other members expressed themselves
in much the same way, and before the
informal meeting, which was held
after the regular meeting adjourned,
it .was understood that the matter
would bo brought up at the next meet
ing. liy a vote of 54 to 6 the national

Washisgton, July 13. Representa
tive W. L Wilson of West .Virginia,'
who presided over the Chicago con
vention and who ia recognised aa one
of the inevitable leadera in the next
congress, arrived in this city to-day.
Questioned as to the probable outcome
of the extra session, Mr. Wilson said:
"It has always been my belief that
the extra session should be continu
ous and no recess be taken. Under
any circumstances, however, the tariff
will be considered. As soon aa the
committee on ways and meana ia an
nounced the tariff will be taken up by
it and, even should there be a recess
before the regular session in Decem
ber, the committee will continue to
have sessions for the consideration of
the new tariff law, which the commit
tee will report to the house." , ,
The rumored intention to plaoe hlrn
at the head of the committee on ways
and means was mentioned and be was
asked if he would accept the place.
Mr. Wilson hesitated a moment and
then replied, with a smile: "I have
never known of anyone refusing a
good chairmanship if it were offered
to him. But I w'l say that the chair
man of that committee during the
next congress will not have his honor
without his labors." .
He added that he had received no
intimation on the subject beyond
what he had read in the newspapers,
lie further said there would be no op
position to the re-election of ' Mr.
Crisp as speaker so far as he knew,
and that he believed the majority of
