KANSAS HORSES AND THE FAIR.
A few day3 ago the Topeka Capital
contained a very clever article on Kansas
horses and the adaptability of the slate
to the production of superior strains of
the noble animal for all purposes, from
which the following is excerpted:
"Aside from its success in breeding fo
the track, Kansas can produce draft horses
equal to the best breeds of France or Scot
land. Senator Plumb's recommendation
that the horse breeders of Kansas make a
specialty of producing cavaly horses for
the United States army is worthy, also, of
consideration, and will doubtless result in
the development of an important branch
of the industry. What Kansas can do in
tho matter of raising cnvalrry chargers,
with the requisite strength, activity, spirit
and disposition, may be gathered in a de
lightful way by rending the last chapter
in Mrs. Custer's "Following tho Guidon,"
a chapter devoted to General Custer's fa
vorite horse, a product of central Kansas."
A bettor insight into this important
and interesting subject may bo had this
week in tho bhape of an object lesson at
the Southwest Kansas fair in this city.
Old horsemen and competent judges tell
us that there never has been congregated
at ono place such an array of superior
horse flesh as is at this moment on exhi
bition at the fair grounds. This is say
ing a good deal, for Kansas has been
noted for years for producing unsur
passed horses for certain lines. The horse
show alone is well worth a visit to tho
grounds to all who appreciate man's best
friend in the brute creation.
Thero was a lively debate in the Ken
tucky constitutional convention the other
day over n resolution to expunge slavery
from the constitution, and it was finally
referred to a committee. Such Itourhonism
is almost as absurd as keeping up war
taxes twenty-five years after the close of
the rebellion. K. C. Star.
The Star is too critical. It should bear
in mind that tho point referred to has
been the stock argument in favor of the
proposed constitutional convention in
Kentucky for the past quarter of a cen
tury, and it was too much to expect the
subject to be disposed of without a dis
play of forensic endeavor that had been
years in accumulating. Tho negro ques
tion will not be given tho same import
ance and consideration in that body as it
has down in Mississippi; tho element is
not sufficiently numerous in Kentucky,
to require it.
Tho new tariff bill restores the tariff on
flax liber and our fanners under its pro
tection will be able to make more out of
tho flax crop than they can possibly mako
by raising corn and wheat. This will also
make a demand for oil mills. There is no
better land anywhere for raising fhiv than
that wo have in Kansas. K. C. Gazette.
That's so; but what pesters us is, when
all the farmers go to raising that crop to
tho exclusion of corn and wheat, where
will they find a market for it? And
where will they get their necessary sup
plies of wheat and corn? The tariff on
wheat aud corn would be felt, then,
while tho tarifT on flax would be a dead

some shape or form into almost ever

KANSAS THE BEST.
W. II. Campbell of Barton county,
one of the most extensive farmers in
western Kansas, relates his experience in
agriculture as follows:
"1 have crossed the Rocky mountains
four times and have bathed in both the
Atlantic and Pacific, and if I had my
life to livu over a.-ain Iwoulddojuot
what I have done, viz: settlo dow 1 in the
Arkansas valley in Kansas. Croakers
may croak and kickers may kick, but
Kansas is tho best state in the union to
day, nevertheless. During the past
eighteen months I have bought six
quarter sections and I am always ready
to buy more whenever I can get it to
suit me. Seventeen years ago I hadn't a
penny in the world: today 1 have !J,(KHJ
acres of land and I wouldn't sell the
poorest I've got for less than $13, while
1 would not Tump the whole for a cent
less than $20 per acre. I have 1,065
acres of wheat, most of which is threshed
and it has averaged over nineteen bush
els, making in all 20.000 bushels, and it
will not leave my farm until I get $20,000 J
for it. 1 think it will go to ?I.2o per
bushel, but I have always made it a rule
to sell wlen 1 can get a fair price. I
adopted that plan during the boom when
I speculated in real estate and I came out
away aliead. The wheat jiift cost mo
$1.07 per acre, including the price of
seed, sixty-five cents to put it in the sack
and it will cost a further sum of $1.33
to place it in the maricet, making a total
of cost $3.05 per acre, so you can see if j

From Um Topeka Cp:tA .
The Emporia Republican continues to
ask rhe childish question, Whai lias In
galls ever done? With equal reason.
What did Daniel Webster ver dor He
was not like Clay. Blaine and Plumb,
fertile in expedients to qniet popular
clamour, or in the invention of practical
remedies for financial emergencies; he
wa not a statesman of tue minute exec
utive order, who ileal chiedy with de
tails ami facts: but rather of the hiehly
intellectual order, who deals with ideas
and principles. For that reason hi
speeches are universal; they can be read
to-day with as much emotion as fifty
years aeo, whuVthose of ht contempor
ary from Kentucky, concerning them--eJves
with the ephemeral events of the
time, are ooi of date. Weter was un
Cddaia in Ihs action oe many praetiea!
problems, jumping from one side to the
other, for example, of the tariff question
anil arguing both sides. But as time
passes, tho distance between the genius
of Webster and the genius of Clay seeni3
to broaden, as it becomes more and more
evident that the great expounder lived
for all time. If he were representing
Kansas to-day the same question would
be asked, What has he done? and because
finger could not be put on this
little bill and that little resolu
tion which he had introduced for
the benefit of a class or an individual or
his special constituency, because his
work has been for the whole nation,
there would be narrow and frivolous
newspapers to ridicule his services.
Senator Ingalls has always been a Re
publican in the senate, ha never vacilla
ted on party issues or public policy and
has done a number of special things for
Kansas which have been mentioned by
his friends in defense against these child
ish onslaughts, but they are not what his
claim to the commendation of the state
should 1 based upon. He has made a
world-wide reputation as a man of intel
lect, of brilliant ability in debate and as
an orator, of a comprehensive and exact
knowledge of affairs, and of thorough
familiarity with the duties of his posi
tion and "the province of government.
He lias rendered Kansas more than re
spected in national affairs. He has been
honored in the most conspicuous mau
ner and to a degree unprecedented by
the United States senate. He has been
something more than vice president of
the United States. It is foolish to talk
of any one in Kansas filling his place as
a national figure, and the height of folly
for Kansas Republicans, against the pro
test of the party throughout tho union,
to speak of dismissing him.
TOO MUCH LEGISLATION
from the Seattle Journal.
At the recent convention of Kansas
Republicans in favor of resubmission, a
platform was adopted, of which one
clause is as follows: "We believe that
too much legislation is a curse."
The Journal would be glad if the
leaders of both parties, in every state,
could bo brought to a realization of the
truth of the declaration quoted. There
is, beyond question, too much legislation
and the government is becoming entirely
There are laws in several of the states
against tlie sale of liquor. Thero is a
law in at least one against the use of
profane language, a Nebraska legislature
of a few j-ears ago rushing to the protec
tion of tho Deity, there is a United States
law, about to go into force, that will
prevent the successful operation of lot
teries. There are laws that protect the
rich manufacturer and oppress the poor
consumer. Thero is too much class legis
lation. But among those needed there is no
national divorce law, and no law ade
quate to prevent and punish the adulter
ation of food and drink. Only a few
states have upon their books a provision
to regulate the practice of medicine and
to restrain charlatanism. Tho people
are prevented from buying liquor, the
efTects of which they" know, but are
offered no protection worth mentioning
from the unknown dangers of adulter
ation or of medical quackery.
There are many laws on every statute
book that should' be repealed, and thero
are a few that should bo enacted. What
is wanted, generally speaking, are puro
courts, with sense enough not to be
eternally tied to precedent, and a
limited number of broad principles laid
down for their guidance.

admired by all. Governor Steele was us
usual a central figure.
Bishop H. M. Pierce delivered eloquent
sermons at the Episcopal chnrch Sunduy
to large congregations. Monday night, as
sisted by Rev. David Howard of Arkansas
City, he confirmed a class of thirteen,
among whom were Mr. and Mrs. T. J.
Hart, Judge and Mrs. Allison, Mrs. F. B.
Li Hie and Miss Bessie Barnes. The cere
monies were very impressive. Mrs. George
Gray sang a beautiful solo and Prof. Hal
leck and Major E. J. Simpkins assisted in
the choir. Bishop Pierce was the guest of
Mrs. C. M. Barnes during his stay iu the
Sick a Long Time.
From the Topeka Capital.
The sickness that prevented tho valiant
Jerry Simpson from remaining with the
army when tho war broke out was quite
protracted and Joiry did not entirely re
cover until the war closed.

From the Atchison Champion.
The Wichita Eagle appears to be a
very obstinate bird. Tho Emporia Re
publican has tried to shove it otf the Re
publican roost for the last three months,
but it still occupies its old place among
the feathery tribe.
From the Atchison Champion.
Tho Wichita Eagle needn't worry over
Luther Challiss meeting Senator Ingalls
face to face. Should that meeting ever
take place the former will be abundantly
able to take care of himself, as he always
has in the presence of greater men than
tho senior senator from Kansas.
The Record Supplants tho Phone.
From the llvrorth Sun.
The Birchall trial is the first of its
kind to have a distant audienco listening
to the proceeding by telephone, which
reminds us that no" telephones connect
with the chamber of our national house
of representatives, or if they do there is
never anybody at the other end.
The Lash Were Better.
From tho Invenworth Tlme.
An Augusta, Me., wifebeater was fined
$150 the other day for abiiting his wife
so severely that slio is likely to die. Tho
fine is a heavy one, but if a sentence of a
year in tho workhouse had accomjninied
it would nave been all the better. Soci

Sees Its Error.
From the Atchlwn Champion.
The Champion is glad to note that the
Emporia Republican now strongly favors
a constitutional convention. Some time
since when the Champion was urging a
constitutional convention, tho Republi
can thought the movement premature.
AVe are glad to learn that it has con
cluded that Kansas needs a new consti

How the Wichita Eaolc can day that:
"It is not Generally believed that tlie ex
pression 'hired Hessians ever blanched a

"it is lawful to hire Hetsians."
