a Test b
Vote of Two
KANSAS CITY, Oct. !.-Samuel Farks,
the New York walking delegate, wn a
personal victory over President Frank
Ruchansn In the forenoon session of the
structural iron workers.
It developed that an amendment to the
constitution, drawn by J. Dugan of Chicago,
a Buchanan adherent, to the effect that no
man holding political office be eligible to
"presentation at any convention of the as
tlon, or to hold an executive ofllce
i came up for discussion. It was
(A at Richard J. Butler, a member of
. No. 2, and an asemblyman from New
Buchanan left the chair and
spoke for tjie amendment and was followed !
by Samuel I'ai ks, who opposed It In one of ,
tne most ardent speeches or tne conven
tion. The amendment was defeated, 13 to
32. One-third of the delegates did not vote.
Besides President Buchanan, James
O'Hrlen of Pueblo, Clarence Smart of
Chicago and John L. Lee of Detroit spoke
for the amendment. Thomas McGovcrn of
Albany spoke earnestly against the amend
ment and then Samuel Parks took the floor
to fight It. Mr. Parks aroused the conven
tion to the highest pitch of excitement. He
claimed that the amendment was aimed at
him, for it sought to oust his protege, As
semblyman Butler. It was nothing but an
other fight by President Buchanan and his
crowd against Union No. 2. Mr. Parks then
paid a glowing tribute to Delegate Butler,
asserting that he had done great things
for union labor.
"Do you want to turn this man down?"
he fairly shrieked, "and In favor of a man
whose ruling you already have repudiated?
Of course, you don"t. Vote against this
amendment and be men."
After Parks had taken his seat It was
some minutes before President Buchanan
could restore order and call for a vote, so
Intense was the demonstration for the New
Yorker that followed. When the amend
ment was declared defeated Parks was
surrounded and congratulated.
After the convention adjourned the
Parks crowd asserted that the vote showed
plainly their strength and that Donnelly for
president would be elected.
KANSAS CITY. Oct. i.-At the afternoon
session a committee was sppolnted to draw
up a working agreement between the shop,
or inside, men and the outside men.
President Buchanan brought up the ques
tion of organisation In the south by sug
gesting that he believed something should
be done In this regard. He made no recom
mendation, but said simply that he believed
the time had come to take some kind of ac
tion, and he asked for expressions of opin
ion on the subject. A long discussion fol
lowed. Every delegate who spoke was op
posed to taking up the matter at this con
vention, arguing against recognition, and
the subject was dropped. The election was
again ptit off another day.
CRIPPLE CREEK. Colo., Oct. 2.-Charles
G. Kennlaon, president of District Miners'

and delivered Into the custody of Sheriff
Robertson, who served on him a capias
charging him with carrying concealed
weapons. Ills ball had been fixed at 1500

The hearing In the district court on the
application for a habeas corpus writ for
Kennlson was deferred this morning until

Leavenworth street near Twenty-seventh.
F. Gurley also spoke briefly.
Rosewater explained his position In
the present campaign and replied to Judge
Vlusonhiilcr's public letter In which the
lalter sought to defend himself by attack
ing Mr. Rosewater. Vlnsonhaler's friends
had packed the hall and made considerable
noise, but listened to all who addressed
The candidates who spoke were: W. A.
Redlck, for district Judge; Fred Btuhhen
dorf and L. N. Gonden. for county treas
urer; D. M. Vlnsonhaler and H. P. Stod- i

the peace, and E. F. Bralley. for coroner.
Harmony Not a Delusion.
Mr. Rosewater. after alluding to the re
cent harmony meeting In Washington hall
as the most representative gathering of
local republicans In forty years, said the
general sentiment resultant showed that
the rank and file of the party are heartily
tired of factional discord, and that for him
self, while he bad been pointed to by the
opposition press as the only stumbling
block in the way of harmony, he had la
bored for months to make that meeting
possible. He said he proposed to carry out
the plan by voting for some men he has
heretofore opposed and by not voting for
some men whom he had heretofore sup
ported. Concerning criticisms as to his policy as
a newspaper editor, he recited a brief hls-1
tory of the partisan press, showing how
In the early days it was a subsidized press,
the mere mouthpiece of party leaders and
expected to endorse all men and principles
advocated by the party whether right or
wrong. With the Induction of the new
Journalism propagated by Horace Greeley
the editor had been freed from these humil
iating chains and a Just freedom realized
that has made it possible for newspapers
to point out the errors of their own party
and expose the bad members of the organ
ization. "I desire to see the best man nominated,"
said Mr. Rosewater, In substance, "and I
desire If possible to say good words for
all nominees, so that pot only party ad
herents, but the Independent-minded voter,
may be Induced to vote for them." - i
As to Vlnsonhaler.
He then look up the personal controversy
with Judge Vlnsonhaler, which, he said,
he regretted to feel obliged to do. "In the
letter to the World-Herald published this
morning," he said, "Judge Vlnsonhaler at
tempts self-vindication of the charges
against him by dwelling on two matters in
relation to myself, which would seem In
his mind, apparently, to Imply a lack of
moral stamina on my part and a penchant
for vlndU-'tlvcnees and malice.
"In regard to the first, namely, that I
called upon him at the court house and re
quested him to continue an ejectment case
against Julius S. Cooley, I am ready to
plead guilty. My doors have always been
open to beggar or hanker. Men and women
come to my office seeking my aid in secur
ing employment dally. I have never re
fused a favor I could grant to any human
being, black or white, Irrespective of creed.
In behalf of Julius Cooley, I went to Judge
Vlnsonhaler and requested the continuance,
being careful to qualify the request with a
statement that it was desired If It did not
Interfere with Justice. I suppose hundreds
of lawyers do the same thing right along,
and I can't see wherein I had a bed mo
tive. Story of the Loan.
"The second charge Is that I attempted
to borrow I'.'O.OOO or $25,000 of trust funds in
the county judge's hands, offering to give
Bee building stork as security. This Is
made to sound like a most extraordinary
case. The Impression Is given by the head
ing and the letter that the securities are
worthless and that I attempted to abuse
the trust reposed In Judge Vlnsonhaler."
Mr. Rosewater then recited part. of the
history of the construction, and financing
of the Bee building and the ocesalon for
borrowing money lit 1902 to meet a judg
ment obtained by the defunct Omaha Sav
ings bank. A broker, Mr. Boatrlght, had
of bis own volition approached Judge Vln
sonhaler regarding the loan after suggesting
to Mr. Rosewater Ills belief thst he could
negotiate a loan In this manner. Boatrlght
had called on Judge Vlnsonhaler without
Mr. Rosewatcr's knowledge and the latter
had conferred with the judge at the form
"I found that the judge declined to loan
trust funds except under certain condi
tions," said Mr. Rosewater, "and the matter

The Injunction on the weather man was
simply great. Showers had bom predicted
lor last evening to dampen the holiday
ardor of the crowd and we.iken the pink
lemonade to the point of transparency, but
the restraining order did the business and
the thousands did the exhilarated rubber
up and down the Carnival streets. The
wind attended the Carnival also nd took a
IihihI at the confetti throwing, sending rain
bow speckled clouds of dust t ccnslonally to
ward the Hawaiian vilhige. It also excused
the j'reo shows during the afternoon, for
neither Hurry RushcII nor Calvert felt It
necessary to risk their nets from their high
placrs nf operation. The Carnival mud
puddle this year bids talr to owe lis Jucl
ness to the tank where the bicycle dlvtr
lakes his stienuous bath. This was emptied
during the afternoon and t lie work of roof
ing It made the act Impossible In ihe even
ing. Thla will be fixed during the morning'
and Russell will give his Imitation of the
high-geared streak of lightning according
I' Calvert Rntertnlna Crowd.
The whole work of free entertaining iell
upon Calvert, but he was able to austulu
the burden with his ballanclng pole and
won the hearty applause cf the revellers.
Besides the ordinarily difficult stunts he
walked across with his feet through a bar
rel, sat on chairs and ate a delicate lunch
J from a table ballanced at the ceitor of
the wire. He also did some trying work
on the suspended trapeie.
The midway did a lhrlliig business. All
but wto of the shows on tne pound were
running full steam and followers of every .
school of sclllng were to be licgrd. 'The
Hawallans pleased the people very much
snd repeatedly tilled their tent. They ring
the soft and tuneful UUud songs, am In
English snd soma in the mother tongue, ,
with a harmony snd feeling which . was
recognised. They nccompany their voices
with stringed instruments, to which th
music of the islands la peculiarly adapted.

Low Rates Bring Crowds.
The one-half Ak-Sar-Ben rate far which
went Into effect yesterday on Omaha rail
roads is bringing crowds lo the c ty. The
actual rush has not yet begun, but rallnpad
officials expect tu have all tney can handle
by Monday. All of the roads ere figuring
on running spaclala out after lli i grade
on Thursday night, but so far none has
come to a definite conclusion exospt the
Northwestern, which will run to Carroll, a
distance of luO miles, and about tha am
distance on the Nebraska and Wyoming
division. The Wabash will run its special
to Pattonsburg, 150 miles, and tha Oreat
Western will extend Its service to Carroll.
Many of the excursionists have signified
thtlr intention to remain In the city until
the limit of live ticket, which Is on the Uth.
and this fact has been the cause nf the
delay by t tie railroads In, deciding whether
it would be advisable to make tha special
runs. Jf U Is decided to do so by the other .,
roads, the specials will only run out from
between fifty to sixty miles.
The hotels are making special preparations
for the visitors and every available amount
of space Is being utilised. Extra beds ar
being placed in the ronma, and cots are
found In the hallways. The general opinion
setrns to be that If the weather continue
favorable from now on th crowd will
be a record .rreaker.
The merchants and others having display
windows have been exerting themselves
during the last few days to prepare f-
feclive Ak-Sar-Ren displays which will at
one and the same time show the out-of-town
visitors that they are expected and
gladly prepared for, and suggest to them
the advisability of entering the marts of
trade. An unscious bit of humor some
times creeps Into these decoration.
An Instance of this is to be seen on
Cuming street, where a patriotic undertaker
haa placed a big red. green and f range
star in his window bearing the rather
sinister legend, "Welcome."
