The Topeka daily capital. Sheldon edition

Sheldon, Charles Monroe, 1857-1946

Congregational minister, Charles M. Sheldon is best known for his book, In His Steps (published in 1897), and for his efforts to obtain better educational opportunities for African Americans living in Tennessee Town (a former district of Topeka, Kansas). In March 1900, Frederick O. Popenoe, editor and owner of The Topeka Daily Capital, gave Sheldon complete control over the paper for a week. Sheldon tried to publish the paper as he thought Jesus would, refusing to print "hard" news or ads for tobacco, alcohol or patent medicines. Circulation rose from 15,000 daily copies to well over 350,000. He listed every person, including the janitor, in the editorial column except for Popenoe who had angered Sheldon by hiring an agent to advertise the special editions. All six issues of Sheldon's edition are included here. A searchable transcription is not yet available.

Rev. Robert Gordon apparently was the pastor at the First Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. This leaflet was written in response to efforts to defeat the constitutional amendment that would give Kansas women full suffrage in 1912. Gordon is a supporter of woman's suffrage and attempts to respond to arguments of those opposed to the amendment. Gordon states that "this organized, highly-financed, eleventh-hour assault is not inspired by honest conviction. It is a desperate effort born of a craven fear of good women on the part of men who know what women will do . . . ."
