The Simpson boom seems to bo con
siderably on tho wano out in Wichita
county, says the Leoti Transcript; ditto
tho Alliance, politically. And so it goes
all over the district.
An Alliance man in referring to tho
big guns and big political occasions in
this city during the past week, said:
"Plumb's oratory didn't capture mo at
all, it was his common sense."
Little Rook, Ark., boasts the finest ho
tel, the new Richelieu just completed,
in that portion of the country. It is four
stories, of modern architectural design
and elegant finish and furnishings. Tho
cost of the building was 100,000.
Ructious Quarrelsome Mills, as an ex
change calls him, is succoedod on tho
stump in Wisconsin by Mr. McAdoo, of
New Jersey, who declared that "all laws
to enforce education aro un-American
and monarchial." Mr. McAdoo proves
as muoh of a hodoo as Mr. Mills to the
Democrats of tho Badger state.
It is proposed, by some fellow out of a
job most likely, to turn tho national cap
ltol building half way around so as to
have it front the principal portion of tho
city. Nobody doubts that American in
genuity is equal to the undertaking,
though nobody believes it will be done
there is no good reason or necessity for
it. It would cost half a million dollars
to do it, which would be a profligate
waste of so much money.

Standard (Dom.) who was secretary of tho
Pratt convention, has this to say of tho
little coup do grace of tho party bosses
at Hutchinson: "Tho Democratic con
gressional committee of this district mot
yesterday at Hutchinson and formally
indorsed Jerry Simpson, which action
permits of his narao being printed on
tho Democratic ticket We opposed the
endorsement of Mr. Simpson at tho
Pratt convention for certain reasons
which wo considered soundand in our
own judgment it would have been best to
have left his namo off the ticket."
The balance of trade for the year ended
Sept 30, last, was in favor of this coun
try to tho extent of about $4o,000,000.
Tor the month of September it was
against us to tho oxtont of $22,000,000,
but this was on account of the unusually
large imports of foreign goods in antici
pation of the enactmont of tho new tariff
law. What effect tho now law will have
upon our foroigu trade will have to be
demonstrated before it can be told
whether tho additions to the free list will
increase tho importation of those articles
sufficient to balance tho decrease that
will result from the increase of duties
xipon othor articles.
Under date of October 11th the Topeka
Capital publishes a special from Creek
township, Sumner county, which de
clares that Levi Hedrkk, a Unionlabor
ite, hud, in an Alliance meeting, threat
ened to use shot and shell if defeated at
tho polls. Mr. Hedrick sends the Eagle
a communication in which he denies
every charge made by the Capital's
"special." He says he never voted a
Union Labor ticket in his life and that
he was at homo with his family the night
on which ho '.represented as having
mado such a declaration. The president
of his Alliance certifies to the facts con
a;ned in Mr. Hedrick's communication.
The Capital's correspondent simply bed.
There is not a voter in Sedgwick

The Eagle's readers will observe that
it has yielded a considerable portion of
its space this morning to the great
speecn delivered by Senator Plumb in
this city Thursday night The con
densed report of the speech given in
these columns Friday morning, only
served to whet the appetite of the public
for the speech in full, and appreciating
its value as a comprehensive and states
manly presention of tho great economic
questions, in which tho senator has taken
so conspicuous a part in discussing and
giving shape, and of the issues of the
campaign in this state, that we cheer
fully accede to the popular demand and
give the speech verbatim.
GOING TO PIECES.
Despite th-" great efforts at making its
public demonstrations imposing as to
numbers there is no sort of doubt that as
a political combination the Alliance, or
People's party as it is called, is rapidly
undergoing dissolution. A prominent
and well informed citizen of Aftou
township, this county, yesterday in
formed the writer that in his neighbor
hood a month ago there were but four
Republicans who had not gone into the
Alliance, Now there were ten he knew
who had pulled out of the "movement,"
having got enough, and would support
the Republican ticket straight. Similar
reports come from other portions of the
county and district Tho thing is on the
wane and by November 4 will peter out.
A TRICK FOR REVENUE ONLY.
Tho Democrats of the district do not
appear to be making indecent haste to
fall m line with the Simpson contingent
at the behest and dictation of tho party
bosses, otherwise the District Central
committee, promulgated from Hutchin
son last Thursday. They all understand
that it was simply an expedient to make
valid tho decoy tickets that the manag
ers intend to put out for trading pur
poses a sort of bait for suckers. A few
gudgeons may bo taken in by the trick,
but game fish will not bite at it. Some
of the wire pullers may profit by tho
scheme, personally, but it will only make
the laraontations of Jeremiah tho moro
intense and bitter after he has sat upon
by his opponent and deserted by his
"The anti-lottery bill passed by con
gress will do more for tho advancement
of morality and personal integrity," says
the Anthony Journal, "than almost any
law that could be enacted." That that
was the intention of the framers and ad
vocates of tho law is not to bo doubted,
perhaps, but that will accomplish all
that is claimed for it in doubtful: in
fact, it is certain that it will not. It has
long ago been demonstrated that men
and women cannot bo coered into moral
rectitude and every attempt to constrain
people to bo virtues but arouses tho
innate spirit of resentment It is trench
ing upon the prerogatives and mission of
the church and a step in the direction of
merging state and church. The writer
believes all forms of gambling to be
wicked and lotteries not the least by any
means, but he doubts that man can be
induced to abandon the'vice by compul
sion. His guess is that the anti-lottery
law will bo repealed or become inopera
tive on account of adverse public senti
ment when its scope and effects are fully
understood and appreciated.
Tho news or rather report, which is be
ing industriously peddled over tho Sev
enth district, that Governor Humphrey
is being traded off by Hallowell's friends
in Wichita, is without foundation.
While nobody doubts tliat Hallowell will
recoivo more votes in this city than Gov
ernor Humphrey, or than any man on
the state ticket, partly from tho fact
that it is his home, and partly from the
fact that he has man' warm personal
friends and admirers among the Demo
crats, especially among such as are ox
union soldiers, he will receive these ad
ditional votes, honestly, and without any
trading. Wo havo never heard of such
a proposition to trade. Tho report was
undoubtedly started by Jere Simpson, or
by the managers of the Democratic part)
for the purpose of hurting Hallowell
with tho Republicans of the western
counties of his distJict, where such a re
port will bo hard to overtake with a de
nial. So far as Hallowell and his friends
aro concerned, they aro conducting an
honorable campaign, in which no dirt of
any character, has been resorted to, and
in which everything has been open and
abovo board, while tho Democratic and
Alliance trades havo been notorious.

Chicago, Ills., Oct 24,
To the Editor of the Eacle.
Having seen nothing from this section
lately in tho columns of your paper, I
thought I would just cast off a few point
ers in order that your readers may know
which way the current is running here
abouts. Chicago, as most people are aware, was
originally the county seat of Cook county,
but it has come to pass within the past
few fleeting years that Cook county has
become the county s at of Chicago, with
possibly, the exception of a few stray
patches around the outer edges; at all
events, we are growing "out of sight,"
as it wore, and you ought to hear our
jealous neighbors howl about it, just as
though we didn't deserve it
We are having most delightful fall
weather, with just enough rain to keep
the ground in proper condition for fall
wheat, and thus insure good crops next
season. Much of this year's crop has al
ready been shipped to Chicago, where it
finds a ready market In fact, this town
is becoming especially . noted as a grain
market, much of which is duo
to our entorprisiug townsman,
Peto Hutchinson, better known as "Old
Hutch," who is a pioneer in the grain
commisskn business aud never hesitates
to take in all there is in sight when tho
conditions are favorable. Farmers can
not do better than ship their entire crop
Our quiet littlo town was recently
thrown into a dreadful stato of excite
ment over a shooting scrap between
"Bull" Haggerty and "Bad Jimmie"
Connortou, m which both shooters were
bhot internally. "Bad Jimmie" prints,
or rather did print, a paper in which he
said some things 'twere better, in view of
general results, to have left nnsaid.
"Bull's" wound proved fatal, and he ac
cordingly crossed over to the other side.
But our town is rapidly outgrowing
these little evidences of border ruffian
ism. Mr. Phil. Armour, who has been a res
ident of this town for a number of years,
engaged modestly at first in the butch
ering business, has, through his untiring
energy and perseverance, rapidly devel
oped and advanced to first place in his
particular line. People who know him
beat assert that ho is composed 1 irgely of
the right kind of "stuff," and that" his
success is well merited. His shops oc
cupy a prominent "corner" in the south
west part of town and give emp.ovmeut
to 7."0 hands. Vivo la Phil!
We have just had a visit from a largo
delegation of British and American iron
and steel manufacturers who were out
ostensibily for a banqueting tour of the
country under the pretense of selecting
a site for a great plant. Like our rivals
wo, of course, hauled them about town
aud fedthem well before sending them
onward; but it is said that "bread cast
upon tho waters" will return two or
three fold, and we therefore stand a
fine show of getting tho big plum when
it gets ripe.
Bill Nye is now a citizen of our town,
he having secured the position of re
porter on tho Herald, our most promi
nent and influential county paper. Ho
has been assigned to tho "lire depart
ment," editorially speaking, and, un
fortunately, has" alreadv had -several
opport nities to "show his hand" in fire
writing. Bill was formerly a clever cor
respondent in Wyoming township, where
his native talent attracted attention and
thus led up to his present lucrative posi
tion. Being engaged practically in the
same line ot business as inyaelt, we occa
sionally meet as wo pass by.
Our town is "chock" full of strangers,
apparently from everywhere, and in
consequence our hotels are doing a
regular land office business. Everybody
appears to have heard of the boom and
are comin ; to see about it Sam Gross,

EASTERN VERSUS WESTERN CAPI
TALISTS. To the Editor of the Kajtls.
Do you think it a display of good
judgment for western editors in dis
cussing important questions like the
tariff, to antagonize western capitalists
against eastern capitalists, as your edi
torial on my letter published in Eagle
of Oct. lo, has done? Is not an eastern
capitalist just as capable of taking a cor
rect view of the tariff question, as a
western capitalist or non-capitalist?
In your comments you say, in speak
ing of me:
"JIe is of that section and be
longs to that pampered belt lying
between the Alleghany moun
tains and the Atlantic whose rich
manufacturers and mei chants believe that
the people of the west are their legitimate
meat and that we are only permitted to
exist that we may contribute to their
purses and comfort"
You could hardly make a statement
that would convey to your readers a
more incorrect idea of "the motives of
myself and others in advocating a pro
tective tariff than the above.
While my home is in New York City,
nearly half of my capital is invested in
Kansas farms, and I spend several
months every year on those farms and
in every sentence I speak in favor of a
protective tariff I utter two in behalf of
my Kansas farms to ono in behalf of my
eastern investments. I believe that the
farmers of Kansas will derive moro
benefit in proportion to the capital in
vested from a protective tariff than will
the eastern capitalist.
But why do you draw the line between
tho rich manufacturers and merchants
of the east and the people of tho west
along the Alleghany mountains? Ohio,
Michigan, Illinois, yes, Wisconsin, Iowa
and Missouri already have as extensivo
mancfacturing industries, that need pro
tection as most of the states east of the
Alleghany mountains. All new states
must of necessity be largely agricultural
during the early years of their settle
ment, but as they increased in population
and weath, manufacturing inevitably
follows, and a protective tariff is the
one thing most needed to en
courage that. Nothing would add
more to tho prosperity of Kansas now
than to have manufacturing establish
ments started in all her principal cities,
and under the McKinley bill she will
surely get them. But why, may I ask,
do the people of the west contribute to
the purses and comforts of the manufac
turer and merchants of the east, more
than the manufacturers and merchants
of the east and their employes contribute
to the purses and comforts of the people
of the west? Are not 'lie manufacturing
cities of the east the largest consumers of
the wheat, beef, ork and other products
of the farms of Kansas? Ninety-two per
cont of the products of the farm3of this
country are consumed at home. Canad
ian farmers consider New York
and Boston a far better market
for their products than Europe
Now let me give you a fact or two as a
Kansas farmer. You say:
"The trouble with Mr. 31illers theory
is that his eastern man is protected at
the expense of a thousand western men
who are jut as good and just as deserv
ing as the et of the McKinlpy mon
strosity." I have been farming in Kan
sas since 1S-S3. and I have derived more
profit from the same farms during the
year past which closed just after tho
McKinley bill passed than I did during
the whole four years of Cleveland tariff
retorm administration, wnicn you so
much admire. That is not all. During
Cleveland. Morrison and Mill's tariff re
form hallucination, I could not get an
offer of oO cento on a dollar for any farm
I own. while within the last
six weeks it refused an offer of more
than 20 per cont advance on the cost of
one of my farms. Now, what makes the
difference? It is this: confidence in
business was destroyed by the tariff re
form of Cleveland and the Jlorrison and
Mills Larilf bill. Confidence has been
restored by Harrison administration and
a congress that has passed the McKinley
Our manufacturing Industrie send
out products annuafiv amounting to
about $6,000,000,000. There are tens of
thousands, of factories all'over the land.
What 1h destruction of confidence
couhl follow if fongres held over the
heads of the; manufacturers the
threat to take 20 per cent off
from th duties on goods
they are making. How soon confidence
is restored when k-U a grand bill as
tLat of William McKinley passes both
bouses of congress ami becomes a law of
th land. Under it y u will see factories
.-print; up all orer Kansas. Business has
improved S5 pr rent, already; prices of
larai products have advance!.
where I go, in Kansas, I see the evi-
dences of returning prosperity. Almost
every issue of the Eagle contains para
graphs speaking of the improved condi
tion of business; what has brought it
about? This improvement in business,
this restoration of confidence, this in
crease in prices was not brought about
by the discussion and passing of the
Morrison or Mills tariff bill or
Cleveland "tariff reform" put everything
possible on the free list. "Reduce the du
ties on all dutiable articles, to the lowest
possible point," as recommended in
Cleveland's first message. It was not
brought about by passing a bill that
would encourage foreign manufacturers
and importers, but by the bill you de
grade as the "McKinley Monstrosity,"
which, thauk God. has become a la of
this land, and no state in the Union will
derive more benefit from it than Kansas
The men who are robbing and preying
on the farmers of Kansas are not eastern
manufacturers or capitalists, but Kansas
citizens themselves. It is your western
farm mortgage companies, your loan and
real estate agents, your scoundrelly
real estate boomers. The eastern
capitalists who loaned money to the
farmers of Kansas have not received an
average of over 6 per cent for their
money, while the middlemen, the agents
and mortgage companies, have exacted
from 4 to 20 oer cent additional. There
are lots of men here in Kansas now who
tretting from 15 to 24 per cent for monev
loaned to farmers. The McKinley bill
will soon put an end to that, for it will
make times so much better the farmers
of Kansas will pay their debts and stop
the extortion. Senator Plumb and Ed
itor Murdock are certainly on the wrong
track on this tariff question. As a choice
between hot winds and tariff reform as a
Kansas farmer says, give me the hot
It astonishes me to see how many
thousands of Republican farmers in Kan
sas are being deceived by Democrats and
free traders into joining the Farmers'
Alliances and supporting candidates that
endorse the Democratic policy on the
tariff question. They will many of them
voto to drag tho country back into the
slough of business depression and low
prices from which they havo just been
