WESTERN KANSAS, AND SO FORTH.
Honorable Joseph Dillon, not tho Irish
M. P., but the enthusiastic J. P. of Kear
ney county and editor of tho Hart
land Herald, was in "Wichita yester
day looking after some official and per
sonal business interests, and while here
paid the Eagle's eyrie a short visit. In
epeakinc of tho situation and outlook for
his section he declared that neither were
ever bettor or more encouraging. He
says that every foot of ground that has
been under irrigation this year has pro
duced abundantly of all kinds of crops
planted. Kr. Dillon's confidence in the
future development and agricultural ca
pabilities of that section of the state is
limited only by the extent of tho oppor
tunities afforded it through a compre
hensive and officent system of irrigation,
and this, he is confident, will be afforded
in theVory near future.
Mr. Dillon possesses a liberal share of
the confidence that characterizes the
son of Erin, or its sons' sons, conse
quently he i qu.le positive that the of
fice of auditor of state will remain in the
custody of that nationality: in plain
English he thinks he can discharge tho
office just as well as Tim McCarthy has
(which is claiming a good deal) and,
furthermore, that he will. Its astonish
ing how quick a fellow catches on to the
artifices of tho politician after ho be
comes a candidate for office.
NO EXTRA SESSION WANTED.
The report put in circulation in tho
east and sent out over the country from
that qinrter to tho effect that the presi
dent will call an extra session of con
gress early in November and immedi
ately after the election for the purpose
of enacting tho pending federal elections
ImII, is most likely a canard, given out
for eHect. However de-iirable and im
portant that measure may be deemed
there is nothing in the exigencies of the
situation that warrants the extra ses
sion for that sole purpose. It is not by
any means clear that the country a ma
jority of tho people demand or even de
sire the enactment of such a law at this
time, and in no event can anything be
accomplished by it if an extra session
were called and tho bill made a law.
Fact is thero aro very mauy people
who feel that tho country would not
suffer irreparable injury if there should
bo no moro congressional sessions until
tho time for the Forty-second congress to
meet. Too much legislation is the bane
of tho countrv, and this applies to con
gress as well as to stale legislatures.
The prime reason for this is the fact that
there is never a session of a law-making
body but that some measure or mwisures
are enacted to add to the public expense
and increase the burden upon the people.
THE PARTY AND ITS POLITICS.
In the present somewhat anomalous
condition of politics it seems almost use
less to discuss the claims of party or the
merits of candidates, yot we take it that
these considerations will exert sufficient
influence upon the void's individually to
prompt them to the discharge of a plain
duty at the polls. As before stated
there can be offered no good and suf
ficient reason why qvery Republican in
Sedgwick county should not give the
nominees of their party a cordial and
enthusiastic support. They are sever
ally, the freo choico of tho party and
wero put upon a platform of the party's
making. That they aro each and every
ono worthy and qualified for the posi
tions they have been chosen to fill
is evidenced by the unanimity with
which they wero selected, all of them,
and by the further test of tho faithful
and satisfactor' performance of duty by
those who aro now serving their first
The Republicans of Sedgwick county
have a clear majority of 2,000 and the
ticket ought to receive just that majoritv
on tho fourth day of next month, and it
will if tho Republicans perform a plain
and simple duty not to tho candidates
and party alone, but to themselves as
members of the party none the less. It h
not tho Eaglk's province to dictate to
anybody what they shall Republicans do
not require such an office, nor is it our pur
pose to deliver a homily on political and
moral ethics: it is quite enough to &imply
call attention to a state of case, and
leave tho individual's intelligence and
sense of fairness and right to do tho rest.
TRAVELING BY AIR SHIP.
It seems very prolwblo that tho much
dreamed of and much planned experi
ments of traveling by air ships is to take
some tangible form at last.
Several Chicago capitalists havo been
holding long di&cusbions on the subject
for some time, and tho result of these
discussions is now published. The
Mount Carmel Aeronautic Manufactur
ing company will be chartered proba
bly already has lxsen at Springfield,
with a capital of 20,000,000. The first
air ship is expected to arrive in Chicago
within sixty days.
The Chicago Times gives this descrip
tion of tho plan: "The proposed air ship,
models of which havo been successfully
tested, will carry cars the size of Pull
man cars with accommodations for fifty
persons each, special cars being manu
factured for quick mail and jmasenger
service. Work will commence immedi
ately at Mount Carmel upon the manu
factory. The idaut will be a
mammoth one, covering many
acres. Tlie first building to
be erected will be S00 feet square, and the
contracts for it have already leen let.

The enthusiastic reception given Sen
ator Ingalls by the old soldiers at the
state reunion at Topeka Thursday would
seem to indicate that the senator is not
so bad off for friends and supporters as
his antagonists would have the public
believe. The demonstrations in his
behalf made by the old vets is but a
reflex of the sentiments of the entire
soldier population of the state, and its
strength and influence when exerted in
any cause is mighty potential. The
same may be said and with equal force
and pertinence of Col. Jim Hallowell,
the Republican-soldier candidate for
congress in the Big Seventh district
simple statements of facts that need not
to be enlarged upon.
The county offices to be filled by elec
tion this fall probate judge, attorney
and circuit court clerk, are all now filled
by Republicans, and no suspicion of un
fitness for their respective positions has
been so much as hinted at by anyone.
On the contrary all concede that these
offices were never better filled. These
men were unanimously named by tlie
party, through as large and harmonious
a convention as ever assembled in the
county, for their own succession. As
far as these facts go, therefore and they
cannot be counteracted or overcome by
any counter statement, either against
them or in favor of others they show
conclusively that a good, round majority
awaits them at the November election.
COL. HALLOWELL AT CIMARRON.
From tho New Wet Echo.
The name of Hallowell is a synonym
of success. The colonel spoko hero on
Tuesday, and his presence had much to
do towards asstiring the people that they
wero not reposing confidence in him in
vain. Said a stalwart Democrat: "If
the colonel is so positive of success why
does he make the canvass?" Why, to be
sure ho will be elected, but the people
mubt have their confidence in him reas
sured and their energies in tho canvass
redoubled. The candidate owes a cer
tain amount of respect to his party and
personal friends and supporters, and this
Ls beat shown by a personal canvass
among them. Col. Hallowell is not a
new man to the people, and hence needs
no introduction; but he goes over the
district to find out what the people want
and to tell them what he proposes to do
for them. As Republicans and Inde
pendent Democrats wo more cheerfully
give him our support under such circum
stances. Our next congressman gave tho people
an able speech on the living and impor
tant issuts of tho day our bpace does
not iiermit of even a brief report of his
remarks. Ho was an hour and forty
minutes speaking to the fair audience
which had assembled to hear him, and
he spoke upon matters which havo been
before congress the past session.
Tho general opinion is that tho colonel
is in sympathy with the peoplo in all
needed legislation for tho betterment of
classes and western interests particularly.
Ho referred to tho retirement of na
tional banks as the exigencies of tho
times demanded; of tho absolute freo
coinage of silver as a measure of partic
ular concern to states west of tho Missis
sippi river; of liberal pensions to all hon
ably discharged so diers, and a liberal
provision for their widows and orphans.
As the eastern states had tho lion's
share of tho treasury surplus for public
improvements, ho favored tho liberal
pension appropriation for tho soldiers,
the greatest number of which resided in
the west; as by this means tho west
would get its share of tho public money;
and old soldiers could soon lift the mort
gages from their homes.
He said the national debt did not dis
tress the country, and tho cry of hard
times was a delusion. The value of Kan
sas products this vear alono was over
100,000,000, while the mortgage indebt
edness did not exceed 60,000,000. Here
was enough to wipe out every particle
The colonel referred briefly to his mili
tary career; and he ought to be proud of
that record, lie disclaimed ever having
any connection with railroads, and never
received a cent from a railroad corpora
tion in his life. He had been reared as a
farmer; always had lived in a farming
community, and his interests and his
sympathies must bo with the farmers.
He made a good argumentative speech,
and won ad litional respect for his
candor. Col. Hallowell is a man of fine
oratorical ability, an ablo lawyer, and
his voice and influence will be felt in tho
halls of congress; and where he will be
come one of the leaders of that body.
IN DARKEST AFRICA.
Henry M. Stanley, the great explorer,
has completed and had published by
Charles Scribner's Sons his great rescuo
and retreat of Emin, governor of Equa
The style is plain and didactic. Tho
narratives aro told in an easy, conversa
tional manner and yet aro more thrilling
and tragic than fiction.
The noblo motives that prompted Stan
ley and his followers to make this frivil
ous expedition into the heart of tlie dark
continent, makes the thought lofty and
takes away tho prosaic element often
found in descriptive narratives.
Volume I is devoted to the object of
the journey, the dangers, hardships and
privations endured by tho band, the char
acters of the natives, the resources of the
countries, the line of march, the means
of supply, the meeting with Emin Pasha,
the interview, the suffering of the rear
column, attempts to give them relief and
their tragic story. The appendix gives a
summary of events of the rear column
from June 4. 1SSS. to August 20, 18SS.
Volume II vividly tells of tho impris
onment of Emin Pasha and Mr. Jeffer
son, tho character ot Emin, the home
ward journey for Zanzibar, tho natural
beauties of the primeval forests of Af
rica, the sources and fountains of the
Nile, tho Mountain of the Moon, the
tribes of the Elass-land, missionary work
along the Congo river, parting" words
with Emin, tribute to the faithful fol
lowers and assistants of Stanley, their
kindly reception at Zanzibar.
Tlie appendex gives tlie cable congrat
ulations received or Stanley at Zanzibar
and the itinerarv of tlie journevs made
in 1SS7, 188, 1889. Stanley says:
