Joke or Plot ? Some Very
Ouecr Letters Written.
WICHITA , Kan. , OcL 27. Congress
man Jerry Simpson claims to have
been warned that a conspiracy to kill
him has been discovered by People's
party managers and'whether he be
Pi lieves the story or not , from now until
k ! he has completed the tour of his dis
trict he will be accompanied by a body
The Democratic and Populist con
gressional committees for the Seventh
district were considerably excited at
the wild story which intercepted
letters told and after a consultation
with John W. Breidcnthal , chairman
of the Populist state central com
m mittee , to-daj' decided to make all the
correspondence public.
Whether someone has attempted to
perpetrate a joke or whether some
crazy man is the author of the letters ,
the effect has been the same. The
leaders to whom the stoiy has been
unfolded have been thrown into fever
ish excitement and the conditions in
the district are such that the masses
will be similarly effected.
Someone writing at different times ,
over the signature "F. A. P. , " from
McPherson. Ernporia and Troy to
Robert Swivell at Harper , Kan. , after
carefully unfolding a scheme to'
"plug" Simpson , entered into nego-
§ 2,000. Swivell is 'supposed to be an
assumed name , but' mail in his name
has been regularly called for at Har
per for the past six weeks.
The letters were brought to the
People's party congressional chairman
yesterday by S. E. Cole , chairman of
the Populist central committee of Har
per county , who had received them
from G. H. Coulsen of Anthony , repre
sentative of Harper county , Monday.
The latter said that Sunday afternoon
about 3 o'clock a friend went to him
and said that he had informa
tion in regard to a conspiracy to
kill one of his best friends. He could
not reveal the name unless he would
give a solemn pledge that under no
circumstances would the informer's
name be revealed as he knew the man
to be desperate. After receiving the
promise the friend handed liim three
letl ers which he had- gotten from the
man while intoxicated. He claimed
to have met the unknown on
the street and the two had gone to ade-
serted house near town where there was
some whisky. The supposed "plug
ugly" soon became beastly drunk , and
was attempting to tell of the deep ,
dark mystery when the letters fell
from his pocket Coulsen's friend
picked them up and was horrified
when he read them. It was midnight
Saturday when the debauch ended ,
and Sunday afternoon the letters
were delivered to Coulsen.
After the chairman of the Populist
congressional committee had read
them , Cole went to Topeka and this
morning returned with John W.
Breidenthal , chairman of the state
central committee. Upon the arrival
of Chairman Breidenthal and Mr. Cole
the chairmen of the Democratic and
Populist central committees were
called together and the letters were
again carefully examined.
The letters were all written by the
same person. Each was carefully
worded , plainly written and correctly
punctuated. The first was'postmarked
Canton , September 19 , but was written
from McPherson , September 17 , and
read :
Mr. Robert Swivell , Harper , Kan. Dear
Sir : I learned only to-day that you were in
Harper county. I had almost lost track of
you. Are you situated at present so as to
do us a good turn ? If so wo have a good
job for you. We dare not more than hint
at the nature of the affair until we have
your word. I suppose you will be with
us , however , it we put up suffi
cient money , and this we pro
pose to do if ever we did. It is simply
this : We want another objectionable one
plugged. Let us know immediately
whether you can serve us or not. Direct to
James L. Cohort , North Topeka. It will
come around all right. This is necessary
in order to cover up any clue as deep as
possible. Yours for business , P. A. P.
The second letter was postmarked
Marion , September ? 5 , and read as
follJows : *
EMPORIA. Kan. , Sept. 2i. Mr. Robert
Swivell. Harper , Kan. , Dear Sir. Yours
nt hand and carefully noted. I felt sure1
that we could depend on you. Now for
business I and my pard , Jake , have
agreed to dispose of Congressman Jerry
Simpson , or have it done , for parties who
we are not at liberty to name , and neither is
it necessary to disclose to you. They mean
business , however , and the money will bo
forthcoming when the worlc is done.
Now don't think that we want to get the
dirt and dangerous part of the job off on
you , and then keep the lion's share of llhe
profits for ourselves. You know very well
we have always done the square thing by
you , and we expect to now. We cannot , as
you Imow , do the real work ourselves , so
we don't expect to act the hog in dividing
the money. Yet there is great responsi
bility resting on us asve have agreed to
see that it is done and to stand between
t-ween the leaders and the consequences
should anything happen. We will give you
$2,000 ( two thousand dollars ) to quietly
dispose of th said gentleman any way you
please. It makes no difference whether
he dies with his socks on or off. Ha !
ha ! Now this is one of the inost
daring things you have ever under
taken and you must be systematic in
your plans. We know your ability , though ,
and trust you will make a success. The
consequences rest entirely on your head ,
remember , and we must not be implicated
even iu your last resort. Work carefully
now and do not hurry yourself. Direct to
A. T. Dunball , Salina , this time. Yours
for business , P. A. P.
The third letter was mailed at Mc
Pherson , October 8. It read :
TROY Kan. , Oct. 8 , 1S92 To Mr. Robert
Swivel , Harper , Kan.-Dear Sir : Yours at

progress to Ing , however , on account of no
means. If you rcn.iy must have some with

we can. „ i * tsiiS&l
As to your plan. I have no 'doubt Tit all

still , it'secnss tofm it is"little more dan

not to discuss these matters through the
mail. Remember you must bo very
careful for your own sake and not
for ours for we h-vcso systematically ar
ranged this correspondence and everything
relating to this matter that ; ill the forces
of Uivcs , gathered with a flne toothed

These letters. ; : s you know , are not writ
ten diroi-ti.v by me. and like all others ,
they pass liirou.h n dozen or more hands
at different plucjs before they reach their
destination. So you see it is for yourself
that you must be on guard. We had bet
ter not write so piain hereafter on that ac
count. I have persuaded Jake to come
down and see you and give all the help he
can. , Ho hates to put his footinto this mat
ter , but then he is going back 'down to
S. A. and soon wi.l i e our. of the way
should anything happen. I am sure you
and Jake can lis things u. well. You know
him. He is a manipulator and a terrible

President Harrison More Composed , ISufc
Still Sorely Stricken.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 27. The president
was more composed to-day than yes
terday , lie is reasonably calm though
deeply grief stricken. Private Secre
tary Ilalford consulted him for ashort
time during the morning about the de
tails of the arrangements here and in
Indianapolis and he made suggestions
with reference to them , though his
words were broken with sobs which
he could not suppress try as lie might.
The body of Mrs. Harrison rested
this morning in the room in which she
died , but this afternoon it was tender
ly carried to the east room where the
funeral" will be held. The emaciated
features and form tell all too plainly
of the' lwastin r illness of
months that reduced the large
matronly figure to a thin , frail form.
But the face in death has the
same kindly expression that it had in
life and the appearance is natural , for
there are no .lines of sulTering visible.
She looks as if her last moinonts had
been full of peace and her expression
suggests that she was tired and had
gently dropped asleep. Mrs. McKee
superintended the preparation of the
remains for burial and communicated
the wishes of the family to the under
There has been no official recogni
tion by the executive branch of the
government of Mrs. Harrison's death ,
and there will be none except the dis
play at half mast of flags on the gov
ernment buildings. The departments
will open to-morrow the day of the
funeral the same as on other days ,
and by the wishes of the family the
business ofthe government will run
on as though the chief magistrate had
not lost the wife of many years.
A meeting of the cabinet officers was
held 'this ' morning at the state department -
ment to determine whether all of the
cabinet should go to Indianapolis. It
was decided best to halve one cabinet
member remain here. Secretary Tracy
will be the only member who will not
g-o. Secretary Charles Foster , who is
absent from the city , will join the
party in1 Indianapolis. Mrs. Miller ,
wife of the attorney general and $ Irs.
Harrison's most" intimate friend in
Washington , will accompany the
party. *
HOME , Oct 27 The pope was "deep
ly interested in the -illness of Mrs.
Harrison and expressed much sym
pathy for her in her sufferings. When
the gravity of the malady * , , was de
clared he sent to her the apostolic
benediction and was very much
grie'ved when" he was informed of her

The Primary Market Jtecelpts Since Julj
1 the Largest ou JCecorcI Very
Largo Stocks of Wheat Every
where StorrhouscH at Market
Centers l Ulinfl Up : it an
Unprecedented ICutf.
CHICAGO , Oct 20. For four months
American farmers have been selling
wheat at a rate that has astounded
the world. The receipts at all primary
markets have been so great that ii
they do not let up aoon the channels
of trade will be literally blocked and
railroads will have to stop hauling
grain from sheer force of neces
sity. Storehouses everywhere are fuller
or are filling up rapidly and supplies
at market centers are piling up at an
unprecede , ted rate. In this city
there are ) , GOO loaded grain cars
and there * no place to unload them.
The "visib supply" now amounts to
almost GO ' 00.000 bushels , and there
is little doubt that it will reach
70,000,000 bushels before the ac
cumulation ceases.
The crop of wheat this year is as
sumed to be nearly 100,000,000 bushels
less than last year's crop. Yet since
July 1 the receipts of wheat at pri
mary markets have been 20,000,000
bushels more than in the correspond
ing time last year. The record of re
ceipts in bushels for the first sixteen
weeks of the crop year in 1891 , 1890
and in the big year of Ib8(5 ( is as fol
lows :

It is difficult to understand why
farmers should be in such haste to
market their wheat with prices almost
the lowest on record. It is true that
the conditions for marketing have
been unexampled. The finest of weath
er has prevailed , but with short and
infrequent periods of storm , ever since
harvest , and farmers have learned to
take advantage of fine weather
and consequent good roads to
haul their grain to market. IJut , even
considering that , it is impossible to
understand why the farmers should
deliver during the first three months
of the year more wheat out of a 520-
000,000 bushel crop , at low prices ,
than they delivered last year out of a
615,000,000 bushel crop at high prices.
Last year's movement was a
normal one. The hold-your-wheat
circulars had little effect. Dispite
them more than the usual proportion
of the crop was delivered in the first
few months. The primary market re
ceipts in July , August and September
1891 were 35 per cent of the entire
year's receipts. In 1890 and 1889 only
27 per cent of the entire year's move
ment occurred in the first quarter.
This year , before four months are
ended , the farmers have sold fully
half of their surplus wheat , and they
have sold it at almost the lowest prices
on record.
There had been a heavy export
movement the largest ever known
prior to last year. In three months
fully one third of the exportable sur
plus crop has gone out of the country.
But despite the large sales for ex
port , wheat has accumulated at
the centers at a rate never
known before. The stocks of
wheat at the principal centers are as
follows : New York , 14,500,000 bushels ;
Chicago , 10,000,000 ; St. Louis , 0,250-
000 ; Duluth , 5,000,000 ; 'Minneapolis ,
4,500,000 ; Toledo , 4,000.000 ; Baltimore ,
2,000,000 ; Kansas City , 2,000,000.
Fifty-Two Thousand English Cotton
Operatives Slay Resist a Reduction.
LONDON , Oct. 27. With a view to
avoiding the threatened strike among
the cotton operatives , the mayors of
Liverpool and Manchester are trying
to induce the disputants to arbitrate
.their differences. The opinion is gen
eral , however , that the negotiations
to bring about the arbitration of the
trouble will prove fruitless.
It is estimated that the threatened
strike will affect 13,000,000 spindles.
The Masters' confederation controls
18,000,000. The spindles in North and
Northeast Lancashire and Bolton will
.not be affected and the 5,000,000 spin-
fdles in these districts will be run as
usual , paying the federation fine of
one farthing per spindle a week. If
13,000,000 spindles stop , 52.000 persons ,
a large proportion of whom are wo
men and children , will be idle. The
funds of the Operatives' organization
are large and already support has
been received from the spinners in
the unaffected districts.

here that there is no foundation for

was referred to but the feeling in favor
of giving undivided support to the
Cleveland electors was so pronounced
as to leave no room for discussion.

the most interesting and most instructh e his
tory which has ever been told. It was prob
ably never better presented , for general rend
ing and reference , than in Alden's cyclopedii
of history , recently published. Every natioi
of the earth , ancient and modern , is treated ir
its alphabetical order , excepting , only , thi
United States , which is to form a separate
work. You have ancient history as far bad
as 15. C. 5004 and modern history down to A
0.1892. All countries are described in thei
physical aspects , as well as historically , so yoi
have the equivalent of a book of travel :
around the world. There are many illustra
tions , none for mere ornament , but all help
full for instruction. Considering the magni
tude of the work , its small cost , is astonishing
The entire history comprises about Soo.oc

by which you can judge the character of the
