Ono of the most eloquent appeals for

From the result of the recent elections

around to that view of tho case.
That Galveston and "Wichita will, in
the very near future, find their interests
to bo mutual, and that their united pull
on the same lines will prove vastly bene
ficial to the farmers of Kansas, there
seems now little doubt. Galveston is
anxious that Wichita may corral the
grain of Kansas in her elevators before
it reaches tho Chicago and Kansas City
combines on tho Missouri river, to the
end that a grain rato may ensue be
tween Wichita and Galveston as low as
the rato on re-billed Kansas wheat to
Chicago, which would result in giving
Galveston an equal if not the first chance
on exportations. Upon the other hand
Wichita is tesirous that the importing
and jobbing interests of Galveston may
force a sugar, fruit and other car load
rato from Galveston to Wichita as
low as is the rate from Galves
ton to the Missouri river points.
This is all that Wichita asks of the job
bers and importers of Galveston, when
Wichita m turn will agree to take care
of the grain. These things accomplished
and the relations between Galveston and
Wichita become identical with those at
present existing between Chicago and
Kansas City. Wichita's jobbers want
the sugars, coffees, fruits, etc., of Gal
veston laid down in Wichita in car load
lots, for just exactly the prico for which
these articles arc laid down at tho Mis
souri river points. There is nothing un
reasonable in the demand, and it is
within the power of tho Galveston
jobbers anil importers to force
the concession in the interest of their
own trade. As for tho grain of Kansas
it is practicilly lost to Galveston's port
when it has once re ched the Missouri
river, as it can only come back again by
rebilling and an unremuncrative haul of
from ono to four hundred miles. That
Galveston may have an equal show with
the lake markets and Atlantic exporta
tion for Kansas grains it is absolutely
necessary that a grain and flour center be
built up at some point southwest of tho
Missouri river. Wichita bavins: the
prestige, and soon to havo tho facilities,
will undoubtedly become tliat point.
From every consideration and from
all vantage points there can be no con
flict of iutero ts between Galveston as
an exporting and importing city and
AVichita as an initial grain center and
jobbing town. The iutorests to these
cities aro so largely mutual as should
permit of no subsidiary strifes on the one
hand, but upon tho other tho most har
monious action. A clear understanding

THE BACK FJLES OF THE EAGLE.
Some subscriber clips an editorial of
the Eagle of eleven years ago, entitled
"No Flop Here," and sends it to us, with
the following marginal note, to which
he fails to sign his name, but which
note startles us with the realization that
people are liable to indefinitely liaul the
back files on an editor. He says:
"The opinion that you don't know
"anything about money is prevalent
" among your friends, but I think it a
" wrong one, and that from your slight
"acquaintance with the stuff you have
"grasped tho idea of what its for. This
"is from a back file of '10. It seems m
" the past eleven years you have kept up
with the band wagon."
The following is tho editorial, and we
don't know that it sounds, in the light of J
a much greater experience, either un
natural or foolish:
XO FLOP HERE.
A correspondent of the National Mon
itor intimates pretty broadly that the
Eagle is on the eve of a flop over to the
Greenbackers. There is no necessity for
such action, as we flopped over to that
side Ions before manv of tho now most
rampant tJreeubackers had given the
question a serious thought. If the writer
means that there is any likelihood of tho
Eagle taking the foolish fiat
flop, he is still further estray.
ihe most of our readers are
well posted as to the financial beliefs of
the Eagle. We are for greenbacks
the greatest possible volume commensur
ate with resumption or redemption
but we want no greenback or paper
money of any kind that is not good in all
commercial channels from Singapore or
Australia westward to San Francisco.
Nor do we want any greenbacks or paper
money based upon some barren ideality
of the Nation's aggregated wealth or tho
country's presumable credit.
While upon this question of currency
and its volume, wo will say that it would
eutirelv accord with our convictions if,
for the millions of silver now piled up
in the treasury and for all coin or bullion
hereafter to be deposited, silver certifi
cates or, in other words, paper money of
prom ses to pay silver dollars ou de
mand, were issued. That would largely
increase the circulating medium of tho
country and not compel tho people to
handle the bulky silver; besides, such in
creased circulation would bo just as good
as our greenbacks or bonds, for what it
called for would bo laying in tho treas
ury ready for every demand issued or
based upon it.

By the will of tho late Daniel B. Fayer
weather the collegiate and charitable in

$25,000 each, and two hospitals $1,000.
All told, theso benefactions amount to
over $2,000,000. In size and in the diver
sity and importance of tho institutions
that aro benefited, this is ono of the most
magnificent bequests on record. The ex
ample of the donor is worthy the atten
tion and emulation of many other Amer
ican men of wealth. It is not without
precedent, however. Girard's bequests
at the time they were made were equally
as magnanimous, as were those made
later by William E. Dodge, the merchant
prince, tho elder Vanderbilt, and still
later by tho petroleum prince, John D.

all predecessors when ho comes to make
final disposition of his possessions that

A NEW ORLEANS REFORMER.
It would seem that tho efforts to so

misplaced sympathy. South Dakota

The Times-Democrat of New Orleans
congratulates that city on a reform
movement, which has as its end the abo
lition of tho custom of having brass
bands in attendance at funerals. Many
of tho beuevoont, social and mutual so
cieties there havo discovered that the
bright and lively strains of brass are not
exactly in keeping with the solemnity of
funerals, especially as the&o bands seem
to mako a specialty of returning from
the grave to tho tune of "Annie Rooney,"
"McGinty," or some similar popular air,
presumably with the idea of thus com
forting the boreaved family.
It is lather a barbarous custom, and
the Times-Democrat is to bo congratu
lated for fighting it. Being in with this
reform, it only needs to get on tho right
side of tho lottery question to bo worthy

To t he Editor of the Kogle.
Money is the measure of all values, tho
medium of exchange in every line of
trade. It enters into all tho transactions
of life, and must bo handled on all occa
sions, often in the dark, and also by per
sons with dim eyes. Hence is should be
so made in character and value as to
serve its purpose best. Gold and silver
coin at least should be so made that the
value could bo known by the touch,
without light or sight. With our cur
rency as it is, mistakes are often made,
a five-dollar gold pieco has been passed
for a cent, imd gold has often beon
passed by mistake for silver. A good
artist could easily remedy that difficulty,
and tho government should not bo satis
fied until that is accomplished.
Wichita, Dec. 12, '90,
Spivey, Kax., Dec. 11. 1890.
To tlie Editor of tho Eagle.
1 have been amused lately at some of
your correspondents still singing tho
"Songs wo used to Sing," still telling the
"Old, old story." God bless their bour
bon souls, will they never learnV
Can they not understand that some of
our dearest idols have been broken, that
the juggernaut of an aroused people has
passed over and crushed them beyond
all hope of mending.
Let us see: one of your correspondents
with irrefutable logic and English fig
ures proves to us that as soon as a few
thousand more "eastorn farms are de
sorted, wheat will be burlier." In a
few bhort years we will bo compelled to
"import wheat," then tho "tariff will be
a blessing to the farmers," as they can
take revenge on the poor devils who aro
compelled to eat, in return for the exac
tions of the infantile tariff barons.
Of course tho fact so logically set forth
that India with her 250,000.000 exports
wheat, cuts no logical figure in the case.
The further fact that our poor are get- !
ting poorer every day and like the peo
ple of India must eat something cheaper,
cuts no figure.
The further fact, that the laborers of
free trade England, with only 27,000,000
of people, yet sufficient pay to be able to
buy the surplus wheat of Indiana's 250,-
000,000, of our 05.000,000, of ltusbia's 100,
000,000 and several other countries, cuts
The further fact that the English aro
willing to assist him in his logical labor
of love, cuts no figure.
