Tho unknown quantity becomes a po

Globe-Democrat remarks, eum in lie

became a factor of sufficient inportanco

The packing houses west of the Missis

tho assertion. From March 1, 1890, to

the same time Ivanstis City, Omha,
Sioux City, Cedar Kapids, Ottumwu,
Wichita and St. Louis packed y.024,000.

Speaking of Alliance oratory, one of
Jerry Simpson's inimicable arguments is
related: "Fellow citizens," he cried,
"Prince Hal can wear his silk under
wear, but I (here he grasped his trouser
leg and bared his limb to his knee) can't
wear any at all " A shrill voice from a
rural throat immediately after broke the
silence preceding the appluuse with: "But
you will, Jerry, after the election."
The social and political event of the
season was a supprise party. Nowhere
was the astonishment more complete than
in the congressional elections. In the first
district Tom Moonlight, a man with strong
personal affiliations and wide-spread ac
quaintance had been agreed upon some
time before the election as undoubtedly
the victor, though the natural horror of
the idea of a Democratic congressmen from
Kansas would not admit a doubt into the
minds of the most sanguine of 82,000 ma
jority born and bred Republicans, but that
Case Broderick would succeed.
And he did not. In the second
district, Farmer Funston, with a
large bundle of "excelsior" in his bosom,
was thought to havo been insuperable, but
the returns show that if Chapman, the
Democrat, had been out of the race, Allen,
tlie Alliance candidate, would have beaten
Funston. Funston, however, may ac
credit part of the preservation of his
epidermis to the fact that he is a member
of tho Alliance himself. In the Third
district Bishop Perkins' splendid record
as a hard-worker in congress, was regard
ed as impenetrable armor in the battle of
ballots, still a rattling fight was kept up
on Clover for weeks before the election,
probably for the variety of support it
affor.led his organs by allowing them to
pound the opposition and not because the
danger of tho congressman was couriered
critical. Mr. Perkins stemmed the tide of
the Alliance flood, better than any of his
brother candidates, as it was. In the
Fourth district the thud with which Har
rison Kelley came down was dumb-founding
to those who made guesses by reading
tho papers. The papers of that district ut
terly disregarded Mr. Otis, bo far as any
serious opposition to him was concerned.
Aside from an occasional jocular allusion
to the "Topeka milkman,' they failed to
mention him at all. Harrison Kelley's
McKiuley bill record in the eyes of his
supporters had rendered him invulnerable.
Out of the seven counties, he only carried
two. All this, two, in the face of a prac
tice of his of prefixing "Farmer" t ) his
n-ime. In tho Fifth district, Colonel Phil
lips' success over John Anderson, who
was considered a political Hercules, gave
him carto blanche to the election. Mr.
Davis was considered in tho race oniy
nominally. JIo is elected by 5,000 major
ity. In the Sixth district Webb McXall
beat Turner at tho nomination and not
withstanding it was agreed that his op
ponent, Mr. Baker, was not much of a
politician, he made a pretty thor
ough canvass, occasionally breaking in
the sacred precincts of an Alliance
picnic. His confidence and strategy
both flailed. Mr. Baker was elected.
In the Seventh, James Hallowell, a man
frank, open and with a rare personal mag
netism about him, a strong speaker and
clear thinker, made ono of tho most thor
ough canvasses to bo found in tho political
history of the country. There was not a
town nor a hamlet iu the district that did
not hear his voice. Jerry Simpson confin
ed his efforts mostly to Alliance picnics.
The result m,ay not be recorded.

AVhy maj not Kansas derive great ad
vantage from the provisions of the new
tariff bill relating to bounties paid for
sugar? Tho best sugar industry is bound
to become a uow and valuable feature of
western farm products, and tho great
states of Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Mis
souri and Nebraska can secure the largest
portion of tho new business if the capi
talists will erect the refii'eries and the
farmers will raiso the heels. Thero are
many farmers that have the requisite
soil for tho culture of the sugar beet.
Some time ago a beet sugar factory was
moved bodily from Germany to Grand
Island, Nebraska. It is not to be sup
posed for an instant that the experienced
German refiners would have done this if
they had not foreseen the splendid op
portunities before them. They have
built a mammoth factory at Grand
Island, and the farmers in that vicinity
and for a considerable distance around
are preparing to engage in tho culture
of the sugar leer. Why may not the
farmers of our own locality engage in
this profitable industry 'i It will divers -fy
their crops and at the same timo yield
more money than raising corn "and
wheat. When this move is generally
engaged in it will introduce an area of
prosperity in the west greater than any
thing ever boforo known.

If anything wero needed to provo tlie
growing importance of the business of
breeding trotting horses in Kansas, tho
racing at the driving park last week sup-
f thed it. A glauce at the list of entries
or the week would surprise one not
acquainted with the progress made in
horse-breeding in this state of late years.
Two-thirds of the horses entered in the
week's races were Kansas bred, and they
were found in every class from the 2:50
to the 2:20 class. The Wilkes, Almonts,
McGregors and all the best trotting blood
in tlie world are bred iu Kansas with as
great success as in Kentucky. The Blue
grass state will always possess the
distinction of having brought trotting to
it present hign place in the catalogue of
American sports by lweeding a new
stock of horses, combining strength
with speed and endurance as theyJiad
never been combined t efore. But Kan
sas can meet Kentucky to-day on her
own ground with results that cannot be
rivaled. There are farms ami stables in
nearly every county in the state where
all tlie best classes of thoroughbred trot
ters and runners as well are produced
with entire success.
From nearly every county thorough
bred horses are being shipped west to
tlie mountain cities, south in competition
with Kentucky and east to all the mar
kets of that section. Dickinson county
has abundantly proved wliat can be (low
in that direction.
Horsemen are berinnms to realize all I
over the country that Kansas unites all
tlie conditions desirable lor the produc
tion of a perfect horse. The climate,
mild iu win er, with a long summer sea
son extending substantially from April
to November, and the fresh, exhilirating
air of the prairies productive of speed;
the moderate altitude, neither low nor
high, conducive to the cultivation of
good "wind;" the native and tame
grasses, growing luxriantly, producing
strength, and an abundant supply of
good water combine all the requisites for
excelling Kentucky on her own specialty.
Aside from its success in breeding for
tho track, Kansas can produce draft
horses equal to the best breeds of France
or Scotland. Senator Plumb's recom
mendation that the horse brreders of
Kansas make a specialty of producing
cavairy norses for tne unireu ota es
army is worthy also of consideration and
will doubtless result in the development
of an important branch of the industry.
THE TRAGICDEATH OF PRESIDENT
BROWN IN MARBLE CANON.
From November Scribner.
On the morning of July 9th, Mr. Brown
and the supplies having arrived, we
started into the unknown deptlis of Mar
ble Canon, with three boats and our
little party of eight That night we
camped at the lower end of the Soap
creek rapid. President Brown scorned
lonely and troubled, and asked me to sit
by his bed and talk. We sat there late,
smokimr and talking of our homes and
our journey on tho morrow. When I
awoke in the morning Mr. Brown was
up. and as soon as ho saw me said,
"Stanton, I dreamed of the rapids last
night, the first time since we started."
After breakfast we wero again
on the river in very swift water. Mr.
Brown's boat, with himself and Mc
Donald, was ahead, my boat, get
ting out from shore with some diffi
culty, was a litt e distance behind. In
two minutes we were at the next rapid.
Just as we dashed into the head of it, I
saw McDonald runn ng up the bank wav
ing both arms. We had, for a few mo
ments, all wo could do to manace our
own boat. It was not a moment. We were
through the rapid, and turning out into
the eddy. I heard McDonald shout, "Mr.
Brown is in there." I looked to tho
right, but saw nothing. As our boat
turned around tho whirlpool on tho left,
the note-bhok which Mr. Brown always
carri 'd shot up on top of tho water, and
we picked it up as wo passed.
Mr. Brown's boat was about one-half
minute ahead of mine. His boat went
safely through the worst part of the
rapid, but in turning out into the
eddy, an upshooting wave, sj com
mon iu that river between tho
current and tho whirlpools and eddies on
tho side, upset it without a moment's
warning. Brown was thrown into the
whirlpool, while McDonald was thrown
into tlie current. McDonald as he came
up saw Brown on the side of the cur
rent, and Bhouted to him, "Como on."
He answered w'ith a cheerful "All right "
McDonald, carried down by the stream,
"was three times thrown under by the
terrific-tossings of tho mad waters," and
with great effort reached the left bank,
where the current rushed upon the shore
at a sudden turn to the right. As soon
as he recoverod himself he saw Brown
still in tho whirlpool, swimming round
and round. Rushing up tho bank he
shouted to us for help. In that whirl
pool poor Brown battled for his life, till
exhausted in the fight he sank, and a
martyr to what some day will be a suc

Some Sensible Census Suggestions.
From the Globe Democrat.
Most of the men who have had any
thing to do with census-taking, like Gen.
Francis A. Walker and Col. Carroll D.
Wright, favor the establishment of a per

botch which the present census officials
havo made of their work, a change of
some sort from existing conditions ought
to bo made. Either present methods
should bo improved or census-taking
should be abolished.
Ought to Wince,
From the Christian Kecliter.
After more than two centuries of
Christian treatment from the white man,
some of the Indians fceem to have con
cluded that the best thing that Christ
could do for them would bo to send the
white man back to tlie old country. Tlie
Christian conscience ought to wince a
little under this intimation. Perhaps
such institutions as the Carlisle and
Hampton schools and such gatherings
as the Mohonk Conference may eventu
ally prove to tlie Indian that the Christi
anity of the white man is not so bad as
to make his room better than his com
pany. Origin of Humbug.

Webster says tho word "humbug is

of the word "Hamburg." It is said that

many false reports came from
Hamburg that it btcame a com

any story to say that "you get that from

" You can talk of the west all you de

oorter the other dav. "but unless roa
travel through it you can never begin to
realize its grandeur and beauty. Whn
we were out there a few weeks ago I
was positively surprised at all tlie glories
of the region, for they outshone tlie

During the past ten years the immi
gration from Europe has been 5,272,930,
not including that from Mexico and Can
ada, which would swell the grand total
to over 6,000,000. This immigration
numbers four times the population of
Alabama and will bo represented by
more than thirty representatives in con
gress. For the most part it is utterly
ignorant of our customs, language aud
laws. It is an element of great danger
to our institutions. It adds immensely
to that volume of tho population which
looks to the governm ent for patesnal aid
and waich sees no benefit in the success
of political parties except the distribu
tion of place and patronage. This im
mense influx of 6.000,000 of foreigners
exceeds tho population of many im
portant countries of Europe. It is
more than the population of Holland,
or Norway or Sweden, or Bel
gium, or Greece; or Switzerland,
of the Argentine Republic, or Canada.
Happily a good part of this horde of
strangers comes from Germany and the
United Kingdom, with as much money
and brains and industry as had our fore
fathers who settled tho country origin

and assume what wo recognize aa tho
American type. Tho children of these
immigrants will grow up speaking the
English language and delivering their
little patriotic speeches at the country
schools, and finally taking hold of ward
and beat politics and representing the
country in state legislatures and in con
