MA.TOU CALHOUN HAS TIIK IIMIIX
Tub editor of tho esteemed and
tastily tinted Herald, Major J. D.
Calhoun, is an excellent gentleman
whoso naturally optimistic turn of mind
has boon Boriously affected by a too ox
tended adherence to tho principles of
democracy, or more projwrly speaking,
tho principles of tho democratic party.
Ho would like to tnko a cheerful view of
things; but ho has preached calamity so
long that it haa becomo second nature
tohlm tollnd fault and scold.
To tho Cr assuranco that tho
"sound of tho resumption of business
is heard In tho land," Major Calhoun
pipes a melancholy wall.
"Huslncss as wo havo known It in tho
brisk and booming west will never bo
resumed," chants tho major, "unless
thero should bo un entire chango in tho
monetary iioiicy that now seems to
dominate tho country,"
bomobody must havo stopped his
subscription to tho Herald, or boiuo-
tntng equally disastrous must havo
happonod. Tho mnjor continues:
"Thero in no remedy; what is dono can
not bo undone Our situation mnv bo
ameliorated to tho point of bare ou
durauco by tho oxorclso of much
patience and great self-donlal bo that
woof tho west may nurvivo until tho
slow and gradual return of bettor times.
TIiIb is tho best that can bo honed for.
and a cheerless prospect it is, and who
expects moro or hotter will bo disap
pointed." llcally, wo nro alarmed for Major
Ilccauoo tho government refuses to
cheat tho whole country for tho benefit
of a fow Bllvor mino owners in Colorado,
because it refuses to listen to men like
Mr. Brian who would destroy tho
stability of money, mon who would run
tho financial policy of tho nation to tho
tuno of tho wheels in tholr heads; bo
causo tho government insists on running
its finances on business principles,
Major Calhoun is convinced that wo aro
doomed to irretrievable disaster.
It is a settled fact that tho govern
ment will pursuo an honest policy with
roforencoto its finances, tho silver kings
of Colorado who want to unload, and Mr.
Bryan and others of that ilk, notwith
standing, and factories are opening,
wages are being restored, banks aro
resuming business, money is Wing put
in clruulatlon and business Is steadily
IJuslness in tho brisk and booming
west Is getting bettor ovory day, and it
will continue) to Improve.
Major Calhoun in just now looking at
things through a particularly dark glass
presented to him by Mr. llryan. He
ought to smash it. Ho would then bo
able to hco things as they are.
TiikV, M. C. A. needs a good presi
dent, and Chancellor Canllold 'In do
dining to servo Interfered with tho pro
gress of that institution.
A WIM.-OVTIIK WIN!'.
It ih said that Ingalls Ih getting into
tho current of politics again with a view
of reaching tho United States senate
through thogoernorshlp of Kansas. In
other words Mr. Ingalls will bo a candi
date for governor next year, and if
elected, with a republican legislature,
will bo a candidate for senator. Mr.
Ingalls might with a great deal moro pro
priety become a candidate for tho ofllco of
grand-sachem of tho order of professional
cranks and txilltleal prostitutes. This
place ho might easily secure much
moro easily than ho could win IiIh way
back into tho esteem of sensible people.
IjigallH and our own Van Wyck woro
made out of tho same stun. Both aro
frauds. Tho Kansas statesman-out-of-a
job Iiiih a pepper box in the top )f his
head in lieu of brains, and somo people
aro deceived into mistaking his spicy
pyrotechnics for intellectual brilliance.
Ingalls is in politics for what there is in
it, and most people havo wearied of thin
political will-o'-tho wisp. But tho peo
ple of tho state to tho south of us
worship cranks and burn frankincense
beforo fanatics, and it may bo that
Ingalls will bo able to bunko himself
Into a political job once more.
Fiiom present indications it is proba
blo that tho republicans in this county
who aro anxious to send a Maxwell
delegation to :ho state convention will
receive a blow on tho same spot, rela
tively, where tho chicken got the axo.

Tho Focloty editor of Tub Cockier regrots ex
ceedingly that In this week's rush mon t Ion of
tho Junto club was unfortuuatelyscrowded out

mot successful social organizations in tho city,
as under tho guldauco of those ro al geutloman,
Mr, Courtuuy mid Mr.Ous Sandors, It could not
bo othorwlso than delightful for those who
appreciate that kind of entertainment which
it was tho purposo of tho club to promote
Hut, as Is alwajs tho case, thero aro pooplo ou
tho outsldo of tho club who aro joalous and
who want to break it up, and this week, Mr. V.
J, Cooper, (u his capacity of chief of police, t,o
far forgot hlmsolf as to matorially clog tho pro
gress of tho organisation, Mr.Courtnay and
Judgo Lansing trlod to restrain Mr. Cooper,
butthnt gentleman wouldn't bo restrained ami
tho result was that tho club was pretty nearly
smushod to pieces. Tho authorities do not
sooiii to endorse tho object of tho club or tho
practices of its member, nud at the prosont
moment tho .outlook for this newest and most
unlquo social organisation is not particularly
