CHICAGO. Oct. 23. Judge Tuley today
refused to Issue an Injunction restraining
Chief of Police Badcnoch from Interfering
with the free silver parade on the nllil ( ;
of Saturday , October 31. He held that the
court had no Jurisdiction In the mat'cr ' ,
and that thu right to allow the parade was
vested In the chief of police.
When the democratic county committee
applied for permission lo have a parade
In the down town streets on that evening
Chief Badcnoch refused , on the ground that
permission had already been granted to the
republicans for thnt evening. A big row
was the result , nnd nftcr futile ntlempta
nt compromise with the republican lead
ers thi } matter was taken Into court. Dem
ocratic leaders iitated In open court today
that they will fight the police force or
any onn else who attcmps to prevent trnlr
mat-chins In parade on the night of O.'to-
bcr 31. Chief Badcnoch , on the other
hand , declares that It would endanger the
peace of the city to have two opposing fac
tions marching the streets at the Fame
time , nnd says that the democrats will not
be allowed to parade. Developments arc

CHICAGO , Oct. 23. The Ornnge Judd
Farmer will tomorrow say : Smaller acre
age nnd n smaller display of yield are re
sulting In a decidedly smaller and moro man
ageable crop of potatoes. The amount
available for market Is by no means ns
burdensome na was the crushing crop of
1S95. The crop now being harvested Is
placed by this authority- 215,480,000
bushels , a decrease of mor - than 50,000,000
bushels , or 17V& per cent , compared with
nyenr ngo. The totnl nrea harvested ap
proximates 2,805,009acres , , which In turn Is
10'per ecnt short-of-last year.
Growers almost up fnnmly devoted less
land to this staple , this being particularly
true In some of th'6 nprthweslern states ,
which In 1S95 showed an abnormally In-
ci-eateil area. Unequally distributed rain
fall is given ns a chief , cause for the short
rate of yield. The average yield per acre
for the whole country Is 'placed ' at eighty-six
bushels per acre , against ninety-three last
This report makes .the Canadian crop
55,300.000 bushels , a decrease of nearly 13-
000,000 bushels , compared with 1SS5. In
view ot the shortage on this side ot the
ocean , and the smaller crop In Germany'
and England , ttiq outlook for prices to
farmers Is certainly better than a year ago.

I Campaign Canard. ,
The democratic-populist fusion candidates
for the legislature arc trying to curry fnvor
with the voters by Riving out the Impres
sion that they are the only legislative can
didates who are opposed to the repeal of the
valued policy law applying to lira insur
ance In Nebraska.
Insurance men laugh at the statements
tlint arc being made by thesu candidates.
They say that In the event th.U an at
tempt should bo made to rcpo.\l the law
less trouble would be experienced wl'.h a
populist than with a republican IcgUla-
ture In preventing disagreeable legisla
tion , especially an all the laws against
which they are wont to complain were en
acted by republicans. As a matter of fact
ho Insurance men disclaim any interfer
ence with any of the candidates In on at
om pt to secure the electionof men favor
able to Insurance legislation.
When asked their views concerning the
allied policy law they are unanimous *
against any change unless voluntarily made
by the legislature. They state thU"'lher 3

"Thero Is no effort on the part of any

on this very subject , which Is < is follows :
C. Ilnrtmnn. Ksq. , Inspector , Omaha ,
Neb. : Dear Sir Wo tmve seen n recent

icver written n word to you on this sub-
[ ect nnd wo wish to sny further tlint wo
invc no knowledge whatever of nny such
action on the part of Insurance companies
OK Is referred to.
The article stntcs-thnt n committee was
appointed to carry on the campaign In
the IntcrestH of the Incuranco companies
tnd against the people and your name
appears as n member of that committee.
We dolre that you take no part whatever
n this movement nnd If you have been
appointed on the committee , ns stilted ,
yoM will please decline to serve. While we
consider the cx'tallng legislation as In
equitable nnd contrary public policy ,
nasmuch ns It compels the citizens of the
entire state to pay n higher rate for In
surance than they would otherwise hnvo
to do , we do not. feel that It Is appropriate-
or In good tnstu for Insurance companies
lo take any action looking to Its repeal.
Wq cun only wnlt until the tlmo arrives
when your citizens sco that their own in
terest demands the repeal of the valued
policy law. nn net offering a direct In

Other Insurance men belmt Interviewed
llEr.ii ed the tjucsllon as follows :
Kobert L. Raynolds , State Agent Con
necticut Fire Insurance Company "No , the
nnnrance companies long ago ceased trying
to Influence legislation , nnd liavo made no
\ttort. nor will they In the future , to repeal
any law. It Is true that at the last meet
ing of our legislature a couple of special
agents , representing companies which did
a farm Insurance business , used their In-
iltvldual influence in thjit direction , but It
was done without authority from the In
surance companies as a whale. Under the
advanced rates made since the law Was
passed the companies are getting paid for
the additional burden , and so long as the
present rate meets that requirement we will
bo satisfied. When It falls to do so , an
additional charge will necessarily have to
lie made. "
II. II. Coryell , State Agent Phcnlx In
surance Company "So far as I am person
ally concerned , or any agents or repre
sentatives of the I'bcnlx Insurance company ,
there has not been and will not bo any ef
fort made to secure the repeal or any
change ' of the valued policy law of this
state' . I know of no one who Is taking any
Interest In this matter , or has any disposi
tion to ask the representatives from this
city , or anywhere In the state , to use their
Influence In securing a repeal or amend
ment to the law referred to.
"During the last session of the legisla
ture. In company with two or thrco In
surance men , representing leading com
panies In this state , wo appeared beforn
the Insurance committee- the house , upon
request of said committee , and stated to
it that If the valued policy law ' were
repealed we would agree that the com
panies we represented , besides several other
companies that had pledged themselves ,
would reduce rates 20 per cent on nil dtusscs
of property In the state .when the" law
went Into effect. The committee failed to
recommend the repeal of the law and the
matter was dropped. There ( s no disposi
tion on the part of the Insurance./com )
panies , so far as I know , to ask any leg
islation in their behalf. "
R. A. Decker , Secretary Farmers' and
Merchants' Insurance/ Company "Speaking
fcr our own company will any wo do not
Intend taking any action whatever In this
direction. "
J , M. Richards , State Agent Insurance
Company of North America "I feel very
positive that no effort will bo made by any
Insurance company to have the valued pol
icy law repealed. Hates In our state am
now approximately 20 per cent higher than
they were before the passage of the law ,
and the loss ratio Is higher than that. Au
long as people prefer to pay excessive rates
that dishonest claimants may recover moro
than they have lost so long will excessive
rates continue. "
John F. Dale , State Agent Phoenix In
surance Company of Hartford "There has
been no Intention or effort made by the
companies or their representatives with a
view to attempting to Interfere with or
disturb this law during the coming session
of the legislature. The people appear to
want the law , and are willing to pay for
It. We long ago gracefully accepted the
situation. "
John T. Hopkins , Special Agent Phenlx

united or Individual effort to secure the
election of representatives to the next legta

has been ulnco tin. ' passage of the valuet
policy law , directly or Indirectly , by mock
Ore Insurance companies doing business It
this state to In any way Influence legisla

natter what the taxed or charges that may

F. C. Van Valkenburg , Sdlc Agent Liver

The mandamus case of Henry Osthoft
against Becchcr Hlgby , city clerk , to com
pel the clerk to print the name of Ostliott
on the official ballot as a candidate for the
office of councllman-nt-largo to fill vacancy ,
came up before Judge Keysor yesterday
morning and was argued nt length by coun-
ael for both sides , after which Judge Keysor
took the matter under advisement until
this morning.
The contention of Osthoff's counsel was
based entirely on the general law which re
quires vacancies In elective offices , occurring
thirty days before a general election , to bo
filled thereat. The validity of the ordinance
passed by the city authorities , under which
D. II. Wheeler was appointed by the city
council to sery/t out the entire uncxplrcd
term of Councilman Samuel Dubols , was
attacked , and It was declared by counsel
to be Illegal nnd In conflict with the gen-
em ! law.
The position jbfitbc city , ns stated by City
Attorney Conn iQ as that the coming elec
tion was not "a general election" for the
election of city officers , but wns only n
general state election. He alleged that the
city charter prescribed that the general city
election should bo held once every two
years. In the odd numbered years , nnd thnt
the charter took precedence over the statute ,
being a later expression of the will of the
legislature. He showed that the charter
provided that the mayor and council should
have power to "provide for filling vacan
cies" In elective offices nnd alleged that the
city authorities had acted within their pow
ers when they had passed the ordinance
under which Wheeler wan appointed.

John L. Webster returned from the Black
Hills yesterday morning and left a few
hours later for another campaigning tour. He
fcaja that the change in sentiment In South
Dakota during the past thirty days has been
something surprising. He was told thnt n
month ago It wns almost unsafe for a man
to open his mouth for sound money In Dead-
wood. The populists made a practice of
breaking up the sound money meetings.
cither by cre.itlnc such confusion thnt the
speaker could not be heard or by going In
early and taking a majority of the seals
and then filing out wlirn the speaker had
begun talking.
But now the situation Is very different.
Mr. Webster's meeting was preceded by a
big parade and he was told It- was the most
successful political demonstration ever held
In Dead wood. The hall was crowded to the
doors and whin ho finished speaking at JO. 30
o'clock the people wcro still standing. The
republicans arc confident now that the state
will give McICInloy a good majority.
OMAHA , Oct. 23. To the Editor of The
Bee : As there seems to be a misunder
standing In the Sixth ward as to my position
on the councllmanlo candidates at present be
fore the people. I wish to make a tliort
statement. , I drew up nn ngrccment before
the primaries , which was signed by the ten
candidates , agreeing to submit our names
in the primary ticket , and the ono receiv
ing the highest number of votes should
: > e the nominee of said ward. There were
icarly 1,100 votes cast , of which Mr. Myron
li. Karr received the highest , and I received
the next highest , vote. Before leaving the
primary , nftcr the votes had been cast , I
told Mr. Karr ho had been declared the
choice of n majority , and he was now my
choice , and I would give him my full sup
port. ' ,
I wish' to stole that I am not a bolter or
< lcker , and after signing nn agreement to
nbldo by the primary I would bo the last
man In the ward to go back on It. It Is
true that ono of the candidates by petition
before the voters of the Sixth ward was n
worker and supporter of mine during the
[ irlmarlfs , and I have been Informed that
I was the Instigator of having him flic said-
petition. I will say that I had nothing to
do with It , and In fact knew nothing of It
until his petition was signed and ready for
filing when I went to him and advised
tilm not to fib It. I believe the national
Issues before , the people this year are of
too great Importance to allow of nny dis
sension In our local ranks , and I propose
to support , and do all In my power , to elect
every man on the republican ticket , from
Major William McKinlcy down.
CnnilliliilcN for tlio Council.
The time for withdrawing petitions for
places on the city ticket expired Thursday
night. L , F. McGinn , the populist candidate
from the Elghtb"ward. Is the only man who
has declined to 'run. ' The time for filing pe
titions wlll > expire this evening. The only
addition to the list 'previously published Is
that of Sol Prince , tyno has announced him
self as an independent candidate In the Tnlrd

feated nt that time , but more recently ho

The Douglas county republicans nro plan
ning for a big street demonstration on the
night before election. The tremendous show
ing that was made when Senator Thurston
returned encourages the traders to believe
that If no speaking Is Included In the pro
gram a demonstration can bo organized ( hut
will far eclipse anything of the sort ever
before neon In this part of the west. The
plan is regarded with a good deal of en

probably be taken up by the county central
