Ex-Attorney General Bradford is try
ing to make himself numerously conspi
cuous in this campaign, both in Kansas
and Nebraska. He is now out in the
papers, over his own signature, declariug
that tho whisky dealers of Missouri are
sending prominent prohibitionists in
Kansas well filled jugs by express and
then tracing them up and swearing that
tho jugs were ddly received and receipted
for. That would bo a pretty live cam
paign scheme if it wasn't a lie. The
average Missouri whisky dealer values
his money too highly to come any such
antics as that with his stock in trade
among the leaders of prohibition in Kan-
bas. There are thousands and thousands
of honest prohibitionists in Kansas, men
who practice just what they preach, but
there are a mighty few of the socalled
party leaders who would refuse to receipt
for a present if a demi John and take the
chances on its contents.
COMING HOME TO ROOST.
The Chicago News has a story to the
effect that when one of the collectors
sent out by tho Democratic congressional
committee approached a prominent
Democrat and business man of New
York, he was met w th a flat refusal to
contribute a dollar. The business man
said to the collector:
"I think you have a good deal of as
surance to come to me or to others situ
ated as I am and ask contributions to tho
l campaign fund. For months Democratic
congressmen nave puunuiy uuuuuuvrcu,
without any discrimination, the rich men
of this country, especially the manufac
turers, as tliieves and robbers. Thero
was no line of separation observed be
tween classes every one who had pos
session of wealth was the subject of at
tack. I am tired of it, and say frankly
that no more money of mine is going to
aid the election of men who think their
duty in congress requires them to make
that kind of attacks."'
THE MANNERLESS SEX.
Oscar Fay Adams is out in an article
in the North American Review in which
he characterizes woman as the "manner
loss sex." The Eagle concedes that a
certain abstraction of manner, or preoc
cupation of mind of the average women
met on tho street causes her to seem to
lack manners or to appear rude, by com
parison, in the eyes of the opposite sex,
but she is not so in fact.
That our lady readers may know what
Adams charges specifically, wo quote
the four following items:
"First Tho difference with which a
women will contemplate tho fact that
the convenience of others has been sacri
ficed to her caprice. Very observable in
"Second Tho needless delay a woman
often causes in making her appearance
when visitors have called upon her.
Moat commonly noticed among women
who are no longer classed as girls.
"Third Tho unwillingness of a
woman to wait for another to finish
speaking before beginning to speak her
belf. Characteristic of nearty all women.
"Foruth "Woman's failure to recog
nize tho importance of an engagement.
Most noticeablo among those who havo
the fowest social duties."
THE ANTI-LOTTERY LAW.
The New Orleans Times-Democrat is
righteously indignant against those
papers "that havo been so loud and so
dibinterested in lecturing" the people of
Louisiana on tho depraved stato of their
morals, as evidenced by tho existence
among them of a lottery, whilo these
papers themselves continue to indulge in
little gambling schemos, which, if gamb
ling is evil, are equally as vicious as tho
Tho wide reach of the anti-lottery bill,
latoly passed, though grioving the Times
Democrat mightily, has made it happy
in at least ono particular. Those hyp
ocritical papers, "mounted on their ex
temporized porch of superior virtue,"
have also to suffer by the bill.
""Wo offer those papers," says tho
Timos-Democrat, "our condolence, bo-
cause many of thorn will be compelled
by tho very law with which they fondly
expected to throttle Louisiana's lottery,
to abandon the gift enterprise which
they carry on in their own columns, with
tho double object of despoiling credulous
buyers and enriching themselves."
But while tho direct result of this
anti-lottery bill is good in stopping these
gambling devices, known as gift enter
prises, there is in it ground for criticism
because of the poslofiico censorship
which it brings about, which censorship
will most likely lead to abuse; but it has
dono ono good, anyway, in preventing
those small lotteries, and even if it can
not affect tho Louisiana Lottery com
pany, progress will come, and it is only
a question of timo when the big lottery
will bo compelled, by popular disap
proval, to take its flight to some more
THE NATIONAL GAME.
Another week will see tho end of the
baseball season. Taken all iu all, tho
year has leon most disastrous to nearly
overybody concerned. In the National
League probably none of the clubs havo
made anything worth speaking of. In the
Brotherhood tho Bostons have been
financially very successful, but beyond
that no club is likely to 6how a very
Urge amount on tho profit side of the
Tlw championships arepractically set

tho Brotlusrliood and to the Brooklyus
in the National League. The general
public, however, takes but very little in
terest in these results. "Wo all remem
ber low different it was a year ago,
when popular excitement ran high over
the prospects of tlw contending clubs
until the end of the season, and then was
still kept up to a highpitch by the games
for tho world's championship. There is
only one explanation and tliat is the
explanation that lias been made all
along to account for the waning for
tunes of the leavers and their backers.
The warring between the leagues
lias accomplished this result and has iu
fiicted an injury not alone upon them
selves but upon the sport as well.
For tlie sake of the sport, which lias
become to be regarded as the national
sport, it i IwjxkI that there will not be a

the mismanagement of the ciubs and

Prof. F. W. TiuI(j In the October Tornm.
I have expressed my belief that for a
year or two no special results may be
exjectcd from tho new act. But hero
again the enormous part which the bank
ing medium of exchange plays in modern
mdustr' may lead to unexpected results.
Tho very expectations of inflation may
bring inflation. If people in general
believe that the silver issues will raise
prices, if they feel disposed in conse
quence to extend their business opera
tions and speculations, and if the banks,
on tho other hand, are in a position to
respond to a demand for increased ac
commodation, then the expected will
happen merely because it is expected.
A swing in business will set in; the silver
notes will at onco stimulate tho upward
movement, and will bo the more readily
absorbed because of it; prices will rise;
and for a while some persons will gain
and many will think they are gaining.
A. turn of this sort may forestall some
of tho effects which otherwise would not
show themselves till after tho lapse of a
year or two. Possibilities of this sort
present still another illustration of the
peculiarly sensitive and expansive
character of our medium of exchange,
and of the uncertainty with which we
must await the results of a mero increase
of note issues, and especially convertible
note issues, by the government.

The history of the rise and progress of
agricultural education in this country is
a story of the enthusiasm and devotion
of tho few opposing the class prejudice
of tho many; and though tho former
havo gained tho day, bo that agricultural
education is ono of tho watchwords of
tho present generation, there still re
mains 6igns of what tho opposition was a
few decades since. The phrase that
"any fool can farm" has been repeated
with endloss and senseless iteration, and
still sums up as well as anything, per
haps, the argument against agricultural
Prominent among those who helped in
augurate this movement in the United
States was the late Marshall P. Wilder.
As long ago as 1S49, in an address de
livered before the Norfolk Agricultural
society, ho advocated tho establishment
of a school where "scientific and
practical agriculture should bo
taught." Mainly through his exer
rtions a bill was prepared tho fol
lowing year and submitted to the legis
lature of Massachusetts, providing for the
establishment of an agriculture college
and experimental farm. This bill was
passed by tho senate without a dissent
ing vote, but was rejected by tho house.
About tho same time the Stato Agri
cultural society of Michigan was consid
ering a similar project, and in January,
lboO, a committee from that body mem
orialized the legislature for tho establish
ment of an institution where should be
taught "those branches of education
which will tend to render agriculture not
only a useful, but a learned and liberal
profession, and its cultivators not tho
bone and binew merely, but ornaments
of society." "While there was no dirtct
result from this appeal, except the awak
ening of public interest in themovement,
it may Ihj noted here that this, and the
subsequent increasing agitation of the
subject, finally secured for Michigan the
first school in this country where tho
t-ole o joct was intelligent investiga
tion and tho application of science
in agriculture. Other states followed
closely in this load, and the sentiment in
favor of higher agricultural education
was becoming so widespread that iu 18C2
congress passed a bill which had been
originally submirted by Hon. Justice S.
Morrill for yeaas previously, granting a
large amount of the public lands to the
resjxctive states for the purpose of estab
lishing colleges "where the leading ob
ject shall be, without excluding other
scientific and classical studies, and in
cluding military tactics, to teach such
branches of learning as are related to
agriculture and the mechanic arts, in
such a manner as the legislatures of the
respective states may prescribe, in order
to promote tho liberal and practical
education of the industrial classes in tho
several pursuits and profession of life-"
THE HARM FROM SMALL MAJORITIES
From the Globe-Dcraocra:.
It is to be hoped that the party which
wius in the congressional elections to be
held in November will have a broader
margin than the Republicans had in the
house at the beginning of this session or
than they even now hold. No matter
which party carries the next liouse. we
would be glad to see ite majoritv at least
thirty. No smaller lead than this coukl
be relied on to give the dominant organ
ization control at all times over the strict
ly partisan measures. Iu a body in which
106 members axe required to bepresent to
constitute a quorum to transact business
a majority of at least thirty is required to
make th party independent of all the
accidents, caprices and chances which
take conressiuen away from "Washing
ton, or which induce them while in Wash
ington to neglect their oihcixl duties.
For it should be borne in mind that the
present house lias not broken all records
in tlie matter of abeenteem. The same
shirking or evasion of political obliga
tions oa the part of our national law
makers lias been manifested m nearly
every congress from the "beginning of the
government under the constitution. "Men
have been found in every great legisla
tive assembly of the world, from the
first etaUisliinont of ropr&eatative in
stitutions onward, who. through cre
faase. pique or perversity, n&v aband
on! their posts and basely surreadwred
The present house of representatives
affords an eloquent illustration of the in
jury to the public service which an insuf
ficient majority brings. It has hamper
ed the movements and thwarted the
purposes of the party in power from the
opening of congress to the lasthour. Most
of the shortcomings which can be laid
to congress during the session may be re
ferred to this cause. It has compelled a
resort to expedients by the dominant or
ganization which, however justifiable
under the circumstances, have cau.-ed ir
ritation in the opposing party and de
stroyed for the time the spirit of calm
deliberation and the desire to dispose of
questions on their merits. Through the
opportunities which it has afforded to ob
struct legislation and thwart the plans of
their adversaries, it has induced the
members of the minority to violate many
of the recognized proprieties in legisla
tive procedure and to display the petu
lancy and silliness of children rather
than the dignitv, honor and manliness
looked for in a national legislature. A
gross injustice is thus done to the party
in power. Tin's organization is held, by
the people, to a rigid responsibility for
the conduct of public affairs without
being able to exert tho control over them
which this relation demands. And in
the broader sense, of course, the entire
people aro sufferers. Through the ab
sence of an adequate majority to enable
a party to carry out its purposes in legis
lation freely and fully, tho people are
denied the opportunity of learning the
exact scop or effects of the policies pro
posed, and thus lack the knowledge
which would allow them to form an in
telligent judgment as to the .claims of
tho rival parties.
FOR STARVING IRELAND.
The Now York Sun of Oct. 1 publishes
an appeal to the people of America from
the American committee for the relief of
the famine in Ireland. The most trust
worthy information from public and
private sources in all parts of Ireland, is
to the effect that tho complete failure of
the potato crop makes another great
famine in that most unfortunate of lands
practically inevitable. The point of
actual suffering from hunger has not
yet been reached, but tho days of starva
tion, unless help comes, are not far off
In tho last great famine, in 1878-79, the
Irish leaders Parnell, Davitt and the
others who voiced the country's appeal
for food, pledged themselves never again
to appear as supplicants before the world
on behalf of starving Ireland. So no ap
peal has been sent out, and probably
none would come from that source until
tho situation became desperate and it bo
came no less than criminal any longer to
withhold it. A movement is on toot
among well known men not con
nected with any Irish soci
eties or political bodies to
bring to the attention of Ameri
cans the appalling calamity which now
threatens Ireland before actual death
from hunger has claimed any victims. It
has been decided to organize under tho
name of the American committee for the
relief of famine in Ireland. It is pro
posed to mako its work cover both North
and South America.
Tho personnel of tho American com
mittee contains the following names:
Chairman, Gen. James Grant "Wilson;
honorary chairmen, lion. Ruthford B.
Hayes, "Hon. G rover Cleveland; vice
chairmen, James Redpath, George Ehret,
Col. Elliott F. Shepherd, James Phillips,
Jr.; treasurer, the New York Sun: sec
retary, Arthur Dudley Vinton. There
will bo also numerous honorary vice
chairmen and many subcommittees.
Chancey M. Depew has accepted the
chairmanship of the subcommittee on
Tho appeal of the American committee
recites that tho Irish leaders pledged
themselves and their people in 1880
never again to appeal to America
for aid in timo of famine. If their
tongues and pens aro 6ilent now it is
only becauso they recognize tho
sanctity of pledges then given, and not
because their need is not great. But the
privilego of giving is none the less oure,
and the duty of aiding our starving
brothers is none tho less imperative.
It will not do to wait until the Irish
people have proven tho existence of fam
ine by dying by scores for lack of food.
Shall men fall dead upon tho public
highway because Amaricans have said,
"We will give relief next month, but
not nowr" Shall children die, wailing
with hunger, and skeleton babes suck in
vain at tho breasts of mothers dead or
dying of starvation, becauso Americans
havo said, "Wo will give by and by. It
is too soon now to give."
Let those who havo never known the
extremit of hunger remember those
who starve. There is no time to spare,
no time to delay. The Irish people need
aid now. The American committee ap
peals for immediate contributions of
money, provisions and clothing.
