VANDERVROOT FOR GOV
WIIAJtTON' IJARKEB To BE
DENT 11V THE MII
J) LK-O F-Tl I K
Corporations are Interested and
Furnished to Milton Park
tion. Paul Vandervroot has nnnoticed him
self as a candidate for governor, lie
will run as a middle-of-the-road populist
He will have to fjet on the ticket by peti
tion. There will be no trouble 'about
getting signers enough to put him on the
ticket. The republican county commit
tees io every county will see to it that
there are signers enough to the petition
to get his name on. Milton Park has
nut out un address written by Wharton
Barker calling a convention" to nomin
ate the said Wharton Barker next Sep
tember as a candidate for the pieaideocy.
It will Iks seen that the three men
who have set out to wreck the popu
list party are Paul Vandorvroot Whar
ton Barker and Milton Park. The llrst
is a candidate for governor, the sec
ond is a candidate for president the third
handles the transportation furnished by
the republican party. '
The national committee which met
last week held an almost continuous ses
sion night and day for three days. Dur
ing that time Milton Park found it ne
cessary to drink a good deal of tea to
counteract the loss of so much sleep.
Near the clore of the session tie lecame
loquacious and confidential. He said in
the presence of twelve or fifteen gentle
men among who were Hon. W. F. Por
t.or, Mr. J. If. Edmisten, Mr. Fred Jewell
Mr. J. A. Edgerton and several other
well-known men, that he had furnished
transportation for forty-one proxies and
delegates. When proof was asked to
substantiate the statement he exihited
orders signed by the the general passen
ger agents of several railroad systems,
ordering the issue of all the transporta
tion to Milton Park which he might
nsk for. rurthmore lie declared
that tie had not paid one cent for rail
road fare for fifteen years and that in
coming to the meeting of the commit
tee he had come around through the
south and bv way of Cincinnati and
was going hack home by way of Boston
.u lorkand Washington.
From the aixive statement it will be
Hpcii that V.io railroad corporations
havn a very great interest in the middle-
of-the-road party and its sueess. It
would he very strange indeed if the
corporations aid not extend the same
favors to Mr. Vandervroot after the
many years of his life that he spent in
their service as a lobbyist around
the Nebraska legislatue. Mr. Barker's
eminent services in preventing any
combination against Matt Quay in
Pennsylvania will, without doubt, also
receive a like rocogniZation.
Many of the delegates from the south
before they went away declared that
they would have nothing more to do
with the leadership of Vandervroot
Barker and Park and they would not
attend the convention called by Park
for next September. Among the most
outspoken were ex-Oovernor Buchanan
of Tennessee, Judge liently or lex 3
Ferris of Illinois and Cardian of Kentuc
ky. The Texas delegation, on its way
home saw in the papers the proclama
tion issue of Park Barker and Vander
vroot. They sent a letter to the secre
tary of the national committee, denounc
There was a good deal of talk about
the use of proxies, but the official record
of the national committe show that the
middle-of-the roaders voted more proxies
than the other side and the state of
Texas voted more proxies than the state
The result of the meeting of the na
tonal committee is a general strength
ening of the people's Party. Its organ
ization will be kept intact. It will nev
er lower its colors until the princi
ples for which it contends are enacted la
