Although there has been a falling off
in condition in some states, particu
larly in Kansas and Nebraska, the
crop this year promises to be large.
Kentucky and Missouri report consid
erable injury by dry weather and this
impairment is shown in all the states
to the South, increasing toward the
gulf. The Pacific slope sends favor
The general condition of wheat,
both winter and spring, when har
vested was 74.0, against 76.4 in 1895
and 63.7 in '.E94. The reported condi

The European agont of the depart

from earlier estimates of the wheat
crop, owing to unfavorable weather,
which was particularly bad at har

fairly good westward. Quality of

M'KINLEY TO VERMONTERS.
Beinlts of the Ilecent Slate Eleetlof
Cantos, Ohio, Sopt IS. 'At V o'clock
this morning the delegation of notod
Vermont Republicans, who had como
by apodal trains from their homes to
call on ox-Govornor MoKlnloy, arrived
hore and was greetod with much en
thusiasm by a largo crowd of people.
In tho delegation wero Governor
Woodbury, Lieutenant Governor Man
son, Congressman Henry H. Powers,
Senator Proctor, Governor-elect Grout
and other Vermont leaders.
Major McKinley spoke as follows:
"I would bo unjust to my own fool
ings and lrresponsivo to the kind
sentiments uttered by your spokes
man if I permitted to pass unobserved
tho fact that in tho preliminary con
test for tho nomination of the presi
dent the stato of Vermont gavo mo
her united vote. Somo of tho news
papers nslted mo to Interpret the result
of tho elections in Vermont on Sep
tember 1, but it seems to mo that they
are tholr own best Interpreter. They
havo simply declared what every
student of nlstory must have dis
covered, that your thoughtful and
patriotic citizens are as true as ovor
are, truer than ever to tho tenets of
good morals, and good politics and
good government They havo shown
by their ballots, by a greater pro
ponderenco than evor, that they aro
more devoted to tho honor of the
government, to tho maintenance of
law and order, and to tho restoration
of that sound, wise and economio
system, which has always been our
chief pride and source of strength,
than at any previous period in our
eventful history- The value of your
example is certainly greater than ever
In tho past, us the issues on which
your victory was won are tho samo
as those which now cngngo tho atten
tion of tho entire country. Therofore,
silver orators and papers of Vermont,
ill conceal, if they do not positively
assert, what is being claimed every
where, that their solicltudo is tho re
lief of those who might temporarily
profit by a degraded currency, no
matter at what sacrifices of the plain
est precepts of good morals. In no
case and at no point do they propose a
system to pay our national and prl
vato obligations on tho plain old
fashionod principles of good faith and
honesty which havo always dis
tinguished tho American people.
'l'ructlcully admitting that the ef
fect of the free, unlimited and inde
pendent coinage of silver would bo an
immense loss to the savings and re
8'iurccs of our people, and that its
adoption would reduce tho plane of
tlnir social and Industrial condition,
they yet seriously proposo that wo
shall risk this hazardous experiment
Vermont has said in tones that cannot
be misunderstood that she will have
nothing to do with that fatal experi
ment. Indeed, they are urging us to
attempt by legislation to make 50
cents' worth of silver to pass current
as a legal tender 100-cont dollar,
good for all public and private obliga
tions. Tho mere statement of tho
proposition ought to lead to its instant
rejection. We cannot by law mako
every man honest, but we certainly
will never mako a law encouraging
them to bo dishonest To me the
question of protection is a question of
humanity, the voico of labor pleading
for its own, and tho question of froe
silver is a question of public morality,
honor and good faith, and its success
would be a blot on our hitherto spot
loss national credit. Obscuro the real
issues, and it finally resolves Itself
into that: but will it prevail? No, I
answer; forever no The American
people, as a nation, like those of tho
State of Vermont, aro entirely above
bo unworthy an imputation

Mr. Wntson In Kansas.
EniK, Kan., Sept 11. Thomas
Watson's welcome to Kansas was not
of tho dignified and ceremonious char
acter which should havo marked tho
advent of tho Vice 1'rcsUlontial candi
date of a great political party to a
sovereign state. No ono was at tho
depot to meet him. Broldonthal
finally arrived nt 9:30 o'clock and was
met at tho hotel by a largo crowd of
local and visiting Populists, but stop
ped only for hasty handshakes and
hastened on to Mr. Watson's room,
where he went into oxccutlvo session
with Mr. Watson and Mr. Reed.
Tho local committee hod announced
that tho speech would be made in tho
afternoon, but Mr. Watson vetoed
that and said ho would speak in tho
forenoon, as soon after 10 o'clock as
Mr. Watson began speaking to about
1,500 people, who sat in front of him
in tho grand stand, sheltered from tho
sun's rays by a roof. It was an audi
enco mostly of farmers and their
wives and daughters. As the speaker
progressed others arrived by train and
team, and before ho had closed 2,000
persons wore piesont.
Mr. Brcldenthal was mado chairman
of tho meeting, and introduced Mr.
Watson as the chamrTiouof tho neonle.
Mr. Watson began by revlowing tho
history of the People's" party, from its
inception, saying that tho 'West and
the South, tho great agricultural sec
tions of the country, had joined hands
in the great work cf securing tho
rights of tho people. Tho West should
stand by the South ns the South has
stood by the West The time has not
come for tho People's party to dlo.
(Cries of 'No, No.') You of tho West
told us of the great evil tho existing
transportation system was putting
upon the country. For God's sako don't
desert the People's party now, when
the great work hus been fairly begun.
Wo of the South still believo in that
doctrine of reform and so should you.
So do you. Don't make any mistake.
The evil that wo started out to reform
is as great now as it was then. I
come to you with a messngo from the
South that we aro in this fight to stay
until we shall havo won Is tho
West still with us? Thank God, I see
it in the faces of these honest men
and women of Kansas that you ar o
still firm in the faith."
Then tho speaker attacked Presi
dent Cleveland and his position on tho
money question and spoko of dear
monoy and its cause.
Gotting to his nomination for Vico
President Mr. Watson said amid ap
plause: "I was nominated unanimous
ly. Mr. Bryan was nominated unani
mously for President Neither of us
was in tho war. Mr. Bryan had said
before his nomination that if the Dem
ocratic party should adopt tho gold
standard he would leave tho Demo
cratic party. I am not seeking to be
taken on the Democratic ticket lam
no political beggar. Nor is my party.
The Democrats and Populists ought to
unite. The tiokot ought to bo the St.
Louis ticket Bryan, tho Democrat,
and Wntson, the Popt'list I say that's
no surrender; it is a fair compromise."
The speaker then discussed the sit
uation as it related to himself and
SewalL "If they mean," he went on,
"to pass tho silver bill, why should
they object to our staying in? Wo
want to help the Democratic party,
but we won't surrender. I will como
off the ticket when my boy gtts out
and mikes speeches against mo, as
Sewall's boy Is making against him.
A man who can't carry his own fam
ily carries no political strength. Our
people would not consent to my com
ing off the ticket Tho surest way to
defeat Bryan is to disrupt the silver
forces, and the way to do that is for
me to be driven off the ticket, but I
say that I am not here to be run off
the ticket I would not take an elec
toral vote that should not be given to
"Turn me down and you lose Texas,
Tennessee, Kentucky. To elect Bryan
the People's party nominee for vice
president must stay on the ticket, aud
1 say Watson is going to stay. I say
to you what I say in Georgia and
Texas. I have had reason to believe
in tho past that I have some friends
in Kansas. (A voice, "You bet you
have: you will find out") I have stood
by the West when Livingstone, Everest
and others failed you. I do believe
that I have a right to expect loyultv
from Kansas. Kansas voted for me
unanimously. I am going to get
your support? (Cries of "Yes,
slrl") Well no man can vote for
me and Scwall, too. You will havo
to vole for Watson electors. You will
have to first put up Bryan and Watson
men, who will stand by me. Hold up
your hands, right now, hold up your
hands. (About half the men in the
audience held up their hands.) Now,
overv man who would vote for Bryan
and Sewall in preference to Bryan
and Watson, hold up your hands.
(Not a hand was lifted.)
He concluded by saying that como
weal or come woe, he was for William
J. Dryn and that four years henco he
would be found as now, fighting for
the people's party and its integrity.
Again tho crowd cheered and the
speaker and his companions and news
paper correspondents jumped Into car
riages and wero driven to tho train
already in sight bound for Iola, where
Mr. Watson will sneak to-morrow.
Greer, Mills, & Co., "I'osted."
Kansas Citv, Mo., Sept :i. This
afternoon, after a meeting of the di
rectors of the live stock exchange,
Greer, Mills, fc Co., were "posted.'
This action means that tho firm is do
barred from all the privileges ot
membership in the exchange. All
members of the exchange who aro in
good standing aro debarred from
trading with it under penalty of 81,000
fine and forfeiture of membership.
All the packing houses belong to the
exchange and in consequence they
cannot buy from the firm, so the ac
tion of the directors practically shuts
it out ot business.
AN ILLFOAL BODY.
Decision Rendered In Regard to the Kan
n City I.lvo Stock Kxchango.
Tor-KitA, Kan., Sopt 11. Judge T,
F. Garvor of tho Kansns court of ap
peals handed down an opinion yester
day m which ho holds that the Kansas
City Livo Stock exchange- Is an illegal
body aud that each member com
tnlttod a imsdcmounor in joining the
association. Tho firm of Grcor, Mills
& Co., of Kansas City, Kan., bolouged
to tho association and was convicted
of accepting lower commissions than
wero recognized under the rules ol
the exchange. A lino of 31,000 was
imposed which the firm refusod to pay
and brought suit to provent suspen
sion. The caso was tried in the Wyan
dotte county district court on an ap
frilcatlon for injunction and tho deals
on was against Greer, Mills it Co.
This decision Is now nfllrmod by tho
court of appeals.
Judge Garvor holds that nil combi
nations aud associations of persons
formed in this Stato for tho purposo
of imposing an uurcasonablo restraint
upon the exerclso of trade or business
aro unlawful and void, as against pub
lic polloy and contrary to tho statutes
of tho State. A court of equity, he de
clares, will not lend Its aid to a mom
ber of such uulawful association to on
able him to retain his membership
therein or to restrain tho association
from suspending or oxpelliug him
therefrom for n violation of its Ille
gal rules and bylaws. Ho holds In
effect that tho association was organ
ized in violation of law, one of tho re
sults of tho organization being to
provont competition among thoso en-
gaged in the livo stock commission
usiness and to enablo members to
maintain uniform minimum prices for
their services, such objoots boing ox
presslv prohibited by chapter 357 of
the laws of 18S0.
In closing Judge Garvor says: "It
is clear that any order of judgment,
whether for the plaintiffs or defend
ants, which tho court could render In
this case, would not clltnlnutc from
the oxchango tho obnoxious bylaws.
So far as their action Is concerned
they will remain without chaniro.
The organization itself will continue I
with unimpaired ability to violate tho
law and with impunity to trample
upon public Interests. A membership
therein, after the judgment of this
court is rendered, will be as much
within tha prohibition of the statutes
as it was before. These parties have
by tholr voluntary acts, created an or
ganization which the law condemns,
and ono with which no man can bo
connected without being answerable
to the luws of tho state aa a criminal.
Clearly tho law will not aid them
tinder such circumstances. A ccurtof
equity takes them as it finds them,
and as it finds them it leaves them,
undeserving ot aid and assistance in a
matter which inheres in or grows out
of their illegal contracts."

Washington, Sopt 0. A long ad
dress and appeal for funds was issued
from tho Populist headquarters to
day. In opening It declares that it
was tho first party to demand laws
against tho encroaohmouts ot monop
olies and claims credit for tho "revolt
ot the massos ot tho Democratic party,
which resulted In the turning down of
tho Cleveland administration and its
British financial policy and tho nom
ination of William J. Bryan on a plat
form demanding financial Independ
ence for tho United States." It
"Tho mission of tho party Is to ro
storo tho government to tho pooplo.
Tho People's party has nominated Mr.
Bryan for Prcstdont and Mr. Watson
for Vice Prosidont, which Is not only
tho truo co-oporntlvo ticket for
tho sllvor voters ot all parlies
to uulto upon, but which is also
tho best silver ticket In tho field.
Our friends must not abato ono

Tho appeal indirectly attacks tho
Republican party becauso it is said to
be recolving largo contributions from
trusts and monopolists and closes:
"In bohalf of tho people of tho United

Governor Richards Predicts Ul roll
leal Surprises In Those Btates.
Oakland, Cat., Sept. 0. Governor
William A. Rlchard-j of Wyoming,
who is her visiting his brother, A. C
Richards, deputy county assessor, said
yesterday: "I believe we con carry
the state for McKinley. We aro not
a large state, having only about t,0C0
voters and thrco electoral votes, but
things might so happon that those
three votes would be necessary and
we shall do everything to place them
in the McKinley column. Wyoming
is not tho only stato in which tho sup
porters ot Bryan may recolvo a sur
prise. In Colorado, although it will go
lor Bryan, there is going to be a much
larger vote for McKinley than even
the newspapers would like to admit,
and 1 think tho Republicans may
chooso the stato officers. Of course,
Sonator Teller has been told by tho
silver men that he will bo returned
to the Senate, but there aro others
who have been scheming for many
years to capture the sonatorship, and
It Is wllhiu the bounds of possibility
that Teller will find himself dccolvod.
The upshot of it will be that Senator
Wolcott will emerge from tho confu
sion as master of tho situation. Thero
aro some women who would mako
themselves disagreeably prominent in

by the others, who say: 'These
