52JSAS LABOR STATISTICS.
The Eagle is in receipt of the fifth an
nual report of the bureau of labor and
industrial statistics, with the compli
ments of Frank H. Betton, commissioner.
It is a publication-of 400 pages, and we
will, in the near future, have frequent
occasion to reter to its facts and figures
of this section of the state. "Wichita
shows a printed list of seventy-seven
manufactories of various degrees of im
portance, the table giving the number of
operatives employed, capital employed,
number of months in operation, value of
product annually, cost of materials used,
amount paid for labor, amount paid for
intere&t, rent and taxes, etc., etc. There
is a vast fund of statistical information
contained in the report, which as yet we
have not" had time to lest by our own
knowledge of local matters, or to other
wise compare and investigate. If found
approximately correct, we shall use and
quote extensively within the next tew
months in showing up the wealth, growth
and development of the state, especially
of southern Kansas.

For several years the advocates of a

for enactment. The proposition has
never mec with very general favor for
the reason mainly lhat the public sus

much more to do with effecting values
than the statistical problim. Option
dealing, or the selling of futures, in
enormous quantities,jnany times more
than what is raised in the whole world
per annum, has without doubt broke the
values of wheat 20 or o0 per cent, not
withstanding the crops that have been
grown at home and abroad. Tlie prices
of cattle have been largely effected by
the hasty marketing of them and their
owners' necessities, not to speak of the
very expensive methods pursued by
large beef slaughterers in rooting out the
old butchers and arrogating to them
selves to do all the business with a
high priced retinue of assistants. But I

The Eaoli: a year ago this month, in
discussing option dealing and the de
pressing influence of such a pretended I
buying and selling of wind wheat, de
clared that if the farmers of America
understood or lealized the disastrous
results, to them, of option dealing, that
they would arm themselves and march
down to Vvrashington in such numbers as

The expression was not only criticised,
but it was attempted to lie shown by
some newspapers that the bulls as often
benefitted the farmer by pushing up the
prices of grain as they were hurt
by the bears pulling it down. We did
not dream that it was possible that with
in a year's time the matter discussed
would become a national question. But
it undoubtedly is. The question is be

Among the resolutions parsed by the
conference of county presidents of the
Alliance held at Topcka this week we
find the following:
Resolved, Notwithstanding the fact
that John J. Ingalls has represented
Kansas for eighteen voars in the United
States senate, it is a difficult matter for
his constituents to-point to a single meas
ure he has ever championed m the inter-
j esfs of tlie great agricultural and labor
ing element of Kansas, and that Ave will
not support by our voies or influence any
canclidate for tlie legislature who favors

Ingalls was a recognized leader and in
The author of the scheme is a Wichita i advance of most other senators in the

the price of all the better classes of
books, which aie ot the most importance
for the higher education and cultivation
of the people, and of increasing the sii)
plics of these, and that the only publica-
I lions which will be increased in price aie
tlie cheapest issues ot foreign fiction.
This last view of the matter seems to
cover the case, and with that under
standing there is no valid grounds of ob
jection to such a law.

The death of General Crook makes a
vacancy in the highest grade of the
United States army and raises the often
recurring and always vexatious question
of promotion. He was the junior in
rank of the three major general, the
others being Schofield, commander-in-chief,
and Howard. The ranking briga
dier general is Nelson A. Miles. It is a
strange commentary on the uncertainty
of human speculations that till within
the last two years the common expecta
tion of regular officers was that General
Miles would be, the next permanent
commander of the army, General Sher

The farmers of Kansas should arrange

that day, laying aside all other work,
they should plant as man" trees as can
be properly put in the ground between
sunrise and sunset. Of course this is
meant in a general way. The necessity
for tree planting in Aery much of the
south-central portion of the state, espec
ially in the alleys of the Arkansas river
and its tributaries, doc not exist to the
extent that it does in some other portions,

of the state, however, where some kinds
of tiees can not be planted to good ad
