of men, appeared on the scene. A. C.

was the spokesman. He had arranged
with Mrs. Nation for a lecture tour in

protested that should she enter upon
the crusade apfnin those plans would

The women became frantic, calling*
Mrs. Nation n coward, after she had
been induced to tfivc up the morning's
work. It all resulted, after much
indignant talk, in sending* messengers
to many who were to have joined in
the raid that the expedition was off.
When leaving* Topeka for Kansas
City to comim-nee filling* lecture en-
gagements Mrs. Nation was inter-
viewed regarding* the apparent discord
in the ranks of the Home Defenders.
"The night meeting we had was
more than inspiring. 1 actually never
had my heart so full of joy as I did
last night. My experience in Topeka
was the first time since I started out
on my crusade against these 'hell
holes' that I ever had to exert all my
influence to get the women started.
They are now, however, warmed up to
the right pitch, and will carry out the rum
work with the Lord for their leader.

sharpening up their nails and they are
nearly in trim. I honestly feel com-
passion for those poor jointists

With an Hour Fixed.
THE STUFF MUST BE SHIPPED.
Topeka. Feb. 1?.—At a mass meeting
in the auditorium a resolution was
adopted demanding the resignation of
Police Judge McGaw and that the city
council confirm the appointment of
chief of Police Stahl. Another reso-
lution favored the closing of the joints
by constituted authorities; but that in
any event all liquors and joint fixtures
must be shipped out of Topeka by noon
on Friday. Feb. lf . A committee com-
posed of II. It. Hilton, J. W. Gleed, A.
II. Vance. .I. C. Smith and Peter 1 lei 1
was appointed to see that the resolu-
tion is carried out. An ultimatum was
then adopted as follows:
l'o those immediately n^aged in the
illicit business, whether wholesale or
retail, we have to say that the long
controversy of the public with you
must now come to an end. ^ ou have
openly and persistently delied our laws:
you have made yourselves the agents
of even greater criminals outside the
state, who have supported you in your
unlawful trallic; you have gathered
about you a criminal element that is a
perpetual menace to the safety of the
community, and have maintained pla-
ces that engender and encourage all
vices: you have introduced the most
corrupting and demoralizing factors
and influences into our local politics;
and for years you have scorned all ap-
peals and warnings that have been
presented to you by the virtue loving
portion of the community. Now. we
feel that the time lias come when we
must speak to you peremptorily. We
cease now to endeavor to persuade;
You must stop this lawless and in-
iquitous business, and stop it at once.
And we hereby notify you that we
must have unquestionable evidence,
absolutely satisfactory to the commit-
tee of public order which we today con-
stitute, that all your illicit goods, to-
gether with all the associated fixtures
and furnishings of the places where
your unlawful business has been car-
ried on. shall have been removed and
shipped n otu the city, before 1" o clock,
noon. Friday, February 1">. 1901. I pon
tho strict and literal observance of
this demand we shall insist, and, if it
shall he disregarded, we will take
whatever measures are necessary for
its rigid enforcement.
If a long-outraged public shall be
compelled to resort to the fundamental
right of self-vindication against crim-
inals and their abettors, the grave coil-
sequences to evil-doers which may re-
sult from such a return must rest with
the defiers and nullifiers of our laws,
and the obstructors of our government-
al machinery. The jointests. the men
who rent property to jointists, and the
men who have violated their oaths in
tolerating crime—these are the dis-
turbers of the peace, and not the af-
fronted and wronged public, which, as
sovereign, has both the right and duty
to see that its will and judgment shall

of the movement is this: The jointists

No City Ordinance.
Topeka, Feb.Citv Attorney (rregg
dismissed the charge held against Mrs.
.Nation for smashing the Senate saloon.
He threw all the responsibility of
prosecuting the crusader on the state,
"The city has no ordinance covering
the destruction of personal property,
but under the laws of Kansas the state
can prosecute Mrs. Nation if what she
destroyed can be proven to be personal

the other parts of the body.
Every organ, every duct, every cavity
of the human body is liable to catarrh.
A multitude ot ailments depend on ca-
tarrh. This is true winter and sum-
mer. Catarrh causes many cases of
chronic disease, where the victim has
not the slightest suspicion that catarrh
has anything to do with it.
