In the pombre pines and slumbrous hills.
The summer day Is dyin?;
Over the face of the widen morn.
The fleecy clouds are lying,'.
The raslnous breath of tho night wind,
Is wandering sweet and wild;
A dusky veil o'er the liquid west,
Droojs low where day last smiled.
Each sound floats through the silence,
On the winters" of the night so fleet, -I
hear in the distance the music.
And the click of daucing feet.
Tlte cool wet grass is shilling.
With dew in diamonds rare;
And down in the sleepy valley.
Sinks the billowy fragrant air.
From a cottage among the pino trees,
A woman's low sweet song
Ripples a-down thro' the twilight,
And dreamily drifts along.
ISlown by faint winds the Jove notes,
From the strings of a mandolin,
Rreak the pensive mellow silence.
To weave their music in. "
The mountains and vales are unwilling,
To let the sweet words die;
"I will lovo thee, love thee always"
The winds have borne it by. ,
The first star trembles Into place,
The night is husht anil still.
Until now again "I love thee,"
Slips down from the pine-clad hill.
And I, late lingering, waiting,
Down'here in the evening dim.
Can now just hear the "love thee"
Of the song she sings for him.
Along the run of the purple hills,
Trails a line of opal light
The breeze lias brought to me "I love"
And whispers it through the night.
The evening light and the haunting song,
And the woman's passionate tone
Have melted away into darkness,
I stand in the night alone. X. V. II,

in the discussion of the bankruptcy bill
in congress Tuesday, not only a quick
IKjrception of a point of discrimination

has merit in it and should be enacted,
but not in shape to be manipulated as
one of special benefit of one profession.
Mr. Kelley is altogether correct in his
position and should succeed in having
the objectionable feature stricken out
before the bill passes.

BLAINE AND THE AMERICAN POLICY
Blaine comes to tho front and again
impresses the fact upon the public that
he is the leading statesman of tho times.
His reciprocal tariff policy with the
South American republics is a step in
tho right direction. Partisau organs
may howl about "protection" and con
sistency, but this is a movement that
ought to meet the approbation of every
American citizen. There is nothing in
this iolicy inconsistent with the doctrine
of protection to home industries and
home markets. To the contrary it is a
great argument iu its favor.
xne -.American policy is lor tne up
building of our own country and neces
sarily recriminating in its effect upon
other nations, but we prosper by it.
For,, under its benign influence we have
built up manufacturing interests second
to none in the world, besides adding
an army to our wage earning popu
lation, and giving to our producers a
home market. But we have reached
a stage iu our development where we
can branch out without disturbing the
equilibrium of our industrial system.
The opportunity presents itself of enter
ing into closer commercial relations with
our sister republics and it .should be done.
If this country can control the inexhaus
tible markets of the richest countries on
the western continent, by opening to
them our own, it would be a brilliant
stroke of public policy to bring it about.
A quarter of a century of undisturbed
industrial prosperity has put our pro
ducers in a splendid shape for a crusade
of extension of commerce and this is an
opportune time for the initiative. Blaine
is nothing unless brilliantly aggressive.
He is the finest type of the distinctively
American in jmblic life. It is to be hoped
that congress before it adjourns will do
him the honor and the country the good
to take immediate action in the matter.
upon any account whatever," says Brad
street's. The New York court of appeals
held (Bank of Buffalo vs. Thompson) that
fie terms of tho condition did not cover
the indebtedness of a firm of which the
mortgagor subsequently became a member.
It is very probable that the house sub
stitute for the senate original package
bill, commonly known as the Wilson
bill, will be concurred iu by the senate
without delay ;uid receive the president's
approval. Tho question at once recurs
upon the effect, if any, the new national
law will have upon the liquor traffic in
original packages, Avhether the state
laws already in force will bo operative,
or additional enactments by state legis
latures will be necessary. On this ques
tion the legal minds of the country differ.
For instance, Judge Foster, of the United
(States district court for this state, is
clearly of the opinion that additional
legislation by the states will be necessary,
while Judge Edmunds, of Vermont and
United States senator from that state,
is quite positive that existing stato laws
are applicable and sufficient. The point
will no doubt lje tested in the courts and
in tho shortest time possible.
GIVE THfe DEVIL HIS DUE.
The Lawrence Journal-Tribune's candi
date for congress anybody to beatFun
ston. After the present political haying season
is ended the Farmers' Alliance fla'tters it
self that the gubernatorial haw-mow will
be filled with Clover.
A western Kansas paper remarks that
Eugene Ware is "out of date." It is im
possible for some people to say anything
pleasant or truthful in the green apple season.
John Anderson has been spoken of as a
very "independent gentleman." At this
point of the canvass in the Fifth district,
however, ITr. Anderson is not flaunting
that characteristic to any great degree.
The fact that President Clover did not
get a vote for the nomination for congress
in the Alliance convention warrants the
suspicion that it is pretty generally known
by the delegates that Clover is after some
News come from Washington that Sena
tor Ingalls shaves himself at half past six
in the morning. The Atchison Champion
and Emporia Republican are both to be
congratulated on their self-denial in not
making this the theme of a leading edi
torial. J. A. Simpson, city marshal of Medicine
Lodge, is the Farmers' Alliance candidate
for congress. From marshal to congress
is a political evolution rarely seen in Kan
sas. In this case, however, the candidate
doe3 not seem to be so much of the city
marshal as a "used to be farmer."
Reverend Boazof Ottawa, is out for con
gress from the Second district. The ab
sence of a reverend candidate in this dis
trict has been noticable for some time.
The state had almost come to the opinion
that that district did not have any preach
ers who were aching to desert the pulpit.
Harrison Kelley thinks he would make a
good president. As Mr. Kelley's personal
acquaintance with the chief executives'
office has been almost wholly during the
administration of Benjamin Harrison, it is
not probable that the grandfather of Baby
McKee will take kindly to such a declara
tion. The Caldwell News man discovers that
the penchant for flirting with strange
men is increasing among the girls in his
town. What are we going to do about it?
We would advise the Caldwell young man
to patronize the ice cream parlors more
and awake an interest, not to say admira
tion in home industries among the young
ladies of the town.
The Atchison Champion calls Senator
Ingalls "a political paste-diamond." Any
body who is lead to believe that the Cham
pion is sincere in this, is informed that in
another paragraph it says "if ever any
party has been skinned by Ingalls times
without number, and its hide hung on the
fence, an object of derision, it is the Dem
At the Peoples' party's Great Bend con
vention Mr. A. S. Hackney, of Harvey
county, was elected permanent chairman.
Mr. Hackney protested against the honor
being thrust upon him, and with child
like innocence declared that he had just
come from the plow and was not fitted to
preside over the convention. Surely, this
manner of man is not related to the iately
retired Billiam Hackney.
From the opinion delivered by Judge
Phillips in the recent original package
case, we take the following, which plain
homily can be profitably cogitated, by
the Kansas prohibs during this heated
"We sensibly recognize the importance
of the rule of comity invoked, as essen
tial to the preservation of the harmony
and peaceful operation between the
courts of the two jurisdictions. But 1
feel sure that in the coming time of dis
passionate consideration and calmer re
flection, when the feverish excitement of
popidar local sentiment shall give way
to reason and a broader national spirit,
the intelligence and partiotism of coun
sel will pronounce judgment for lus con
stituents acquitting the federal judiciary
in this controversy of the imputation of
unduly interfering, when they are ex
ecuting the highest behests of the fed
eral constitution. Is it not rather the re
spondent and his abetters,who should rec
ognize this rule of comity. The supreme
court of the United States has declared
so much of the law of Kansas as pro
hibits the importation of liquors, etc.,
into the state, and their sale therein in
the original packages as unconstitution
al. The United States circuit court
judge, in obedience to his oath of office,
lias reaffirmed and applies that decision
to thpse prosecutions.
"Until congress shall iuterpose and
confer upon the state the right to regu
late this matter, loyalty to the supreme
law of the land, and the obligation of
good citizenship demand that the state
and its ministerial officers should forbear
to provoke the occasion for tho federal
judiciary to tissert their jurisdiction to
see thatthe federal constitution is rec
ognized and obeyed. The most august
thing in government is law, and the
highest duty of citizenship is obedience
to and respect for the law.'

WHACK AND WHACK BACK.
Mr. ilcKinley, the author of the tariff
bill that bears his name, is said to have
declared recently that "tlie race for the
Democratic nomination for president in

This, if true, was urompted. no doubt,

upon the crazy-quilt affair a short time
ago. But Mac ought not to be so easily

To the Editor of the Eagle.
A righteous indignation calls for the
pouring forth of vials of wrath upon the
heads of the men who are sending ex
aggerated reports to eastern papers of ad
verse conditions and financial distress in
Kansas, as if bountiful crops, under
favorable climatic conditions were the
rule this year elsewhere It is a fact that
no western state will make a better
showing in the aggregate value of farm
products this year than Kansas. It is not
because our soil will not rosjiond bounti
fully to honest labor, intelligently applied,
that adversity lias overtaken many k?o
ple in Kansas (and not more here than
elsewhere); but in the majority of these
cases men are aying the jienalty for go

The debts which are proving burdens
were unnecessarily incurred. If it were
not for these debts we would
hear but little complaint about
hard times in Kansas. After
charging to an unjust tariff, an unjust
monetary system, and all unwise laws,
all that has been taken from us through
anu oy tnem we will still find that there
is much to charge to our own errors, and
violations of good business methods.
One thing which the people of Kansas
lost during the boom era they have
recovered their common sense. If they
but make good use of it now, in the
management of their private business,
and in tin? exercise of their duties as citi

No indeed, the Sun has no "evil

failure and the preacher goes with the
