Fears a Democratic House Other

Chicago, July 25: Hearsts Chica
go American says:
The - belief is growing1 that the

meeting 01 goia democrats caned to
-assemble at Indianapolis on July 25
will not be of much cons, quence
politically. Judge J. D. Yeomans,
of Iowa, a member of the. Inter
state Commerce Commission, spent
yesterday in unicaao, ana was d is
posed to sneer at the Indanapolis
meeting. Yomans was originally
appointed a member of ilie vlnter
State Commerce Commission by
President Cleveland and with hfs
chief, bolted Bryan and the Chicago
platform in 1896.
This year Judge Yeomans is sup
porting Bryan, and predicts that tie
will be elected. To a Chicago
American reporter judge Yeomans
said: " .
Either Mr Cleveland nor any
member of his last Cabinet is tak
ing any stock in the meeting of
gold democrats to be held at India
apolis. . So far as I can learn no
man of any importance is identify
ing himself with the movement.
My information is that formor
Secretary of the Treasury Carlisle
former Naval Secretary Herbct, and
former Postmaster General Wilson
have declared their intention to sup
port Bryan. Former Secretary of
State Olney did not bolt four years
ago,' and he is not likely to bolt this

time. It is my impression tbat only
those gold democrats who are will
ing to permit Hanna to pay their
expenses will attend the Indiana
polis meeting. '
There have been only two Presi
dents Lincoln and ' Grant re
elected in more than sixty years,
and I doubt very much if it is the
intention of the people of the coun
try to re-elect McKinley. - Bryan
has grown and broadened percepti
bly during the past fou years, and
conservative people have not the
fear of him now that they had in
ment of Michael Collins of Peotone
that he has renounced McKinleyism
and will vote for William J. Bryan.
Imperialism as represented by
Mr McKinley, coupled with its re
cognition of trusts, were the causes
which decided, Mr Collins, a life
long republican, to embracedemo
cracy. His attitude will affect other
wavering republicans, and is likely
to make . Will county strongly demo

Columbus O. July 18 Chair
man Dick, of the republican state
executive committee, gave the Ohio
republicans a chill today by an
nouncing in'an interview that, in his
opinion, Ohio properly belonged to
the list of doubtful states. He ar
rived in the city last night to se
lect fceadquarters for the state cam
paign and to set the preliminery
work going. .
"What do you think of the po
litical situation in Ohio?'' wa the
first question put ' io him. -
"We have a fight on our hand;,"
was his quick response. ''It is my
opinion that before the Kansas City
convention, judging by the prelim
inary skirmishing of the democrats

Salina Kan July20 Necessity
has made the Kansas farmer so
energetic - and enterprising that
lack of rain, dryness of Eoil and
grasshoppers the bane of the ex
istence of pioneer Kansas farmers-
have no terrors for the farmer of
1900. "
If a sufficiency of rain seem to
guarantee good crops to the farmer
of fifteen years ago, he still ran the
risk of having his crop partially or
completely destroyed by grass
hoppers. It has remained for the
fertile brain of a Salina - county
farmer to devise thejfoliowing ef
fectual methods of exterminating
grasshoppers, viz: By raising a
flock of 1,000 turkeys and renting
them out at $25 per day. .
The name of the -man who is
the father of this new industry r is
Mr Finch, one of, the farmers of
prosperous Salina county. Mr Finch
says the grasshoppers have been so
numerous in his district this eum-
oier as to do considerable damage
to all crops. He, has a drove of 1,
000 young turkeys, and he soon
dispovered - that his poultry was
more than a match for the grass
hoppers. . The turkeys destroyed
the hoppers almost as fast as they
could light on his premises and be
fore they had time to work any dis
truction. Presently Mr Finch's neighbors
saw that his fields continued green
and luxuriant, while others were bar
ren in spots, and they investigated.
When they found out about Finch's
turkeys a few of the enterprising
farmers began to negotiate for the
uee of the flock. Finch proceeded
on the theory that 100 turkeys were
as valuable as a farm hand and ac
cordingly fixed a rental of $2.50 per
day for each 100 turkeys. The en
tire flock is in demand, and Mr
Finch derives a revenue of $25 a
day on his investment.
