THE ABEOGANT OCTOPUS.
The Kansas City, ilo., papers affect a
"sneei- as they satrically allude to the
"five"' grocery concerns of interior .Kan
sas making so bold as to ask their own
state commissioners for rights when
said rights happen to conflict with the
greed of a town that has grown power
ful and arrogant solely upon the en
forced patronage of Kansas. It seems
that for convenience that only "live"
firms joined in the demand for justice at
tbe hands of Kansas railway corpora
tions; but they represent the jobbers of
as many towns, which towns have as
much right to live as tho ilissouri octo
pus. The fact that but two AVichita
firms are represented iu the case made
up, Wichita nevertheless has eighty odd
firms, to bay nothing of her packing
houces, mills and foundries, that are do
ing a wholesale business, and which are
determined to have justice, even if the
commission and the courts should fail
This is a caso wherein he sneers of
3Iissouri papers are not frightening any
body. AN INSCIT TO INTELLIGENCE.
The wholesale grocers of Kansas City
have assumed a new lole in the Kansas
freight fight. They are now appearing
as the champions of the tetailers and con
sumers ot Kansas, V'uoj tneJ claim, will
be greatlj- injured should the commis
sioners' fieight rates go into effect. In
order to have the appearance of being
reasonable they submit that tho differ
ence between the carload, and less than
carload rale on sugar from the Missouri
river to Kansas points will be so gieat as
to work an injury to the smaller buyers.
Such stuff as this is an insult to tho in
telligence of the retailers, and there is
little danger that any of them will be in
fluenced by it.
In the first place the proposition that a
freight reduction to Kansas will
injure any of its citizens, whether
they be jobbers, retailers, or consumers,
is absurd on the face of it. There is not
a retail grocer in the state who does not .4,ast in j,vg;enjcs While it is perfectly
know that the 15 cent reduction ordered i demonstrable that both the pope and the
in by the commissioners will reduce thcJ ex-preinier's health is a great compli
cost of his sugar exactly 15 cents on tha j ment to tliejr temperate, discretionary
sack. lives, fitill it is eouallv true that in
The retailer knows that his Kansas
jobber is only interestod in the sugar rate
being reduced from tho Missouri liver in
so far as such reduction will lower the
through rate. It is noticeable that
the Kansas City papers carefully avoid
tho real issue, which is the sugar
rato from New Orleans. Tho interior
jobber is fighting because the rail
roads have been t charging him CO
cents per hundred lor hauling his
sugar from New Orleaus, while for haul
ing his Kansas City competitor's sugar
a charge of only 30 cents is made, al
though the distance is the same.
The Kansas City papers would have it
appear that there is a freight fight in
Kansas. Such is not the case. There is
good reason for believing that tho Kan
sas railroads stand ready to adjust the
discrimination in line with the commis
sioner's order, and whenever the Missouri
river jobbers withdraw their injunction
suit, justice will take its course, and
peace will prevail.
But in the moantime the more they
appeal to tho Kansas retailars and con
sumers tho more they will strengthen
the caso of tho interior jobbeis who
could have no greater desire than to have
the facts in their case made plain to
every citizen of the state.
OKLAHOMA. OP TODAY.
The opening of the Cheyenne and
Arapahoo country in the near future has
again turned the attention of the coun
try to this wonderful little domain.
Oklahoma of today is not tho Okla
homa of three years ago. Everywhere
the touch of the finger of civilization is
apparent. Where once the endless prai
rie rolled, unmarked and boundless, are
now strong, substantial fences and flour
ishing hedges. Tho roads have been
forced to the section lines; the pastures
have been enclosed; the fields turned
and tilled; tho little shack that served in
an early day, all too poorly for shelter
fiom wind and rain, has given way to a
comfortable house of lumber or a cozy,
home-like cabin. The farms aie well
btocked; orchards, soon to be redolent
with tho perfume of their blossoms, dot
every claim and homestead.
Haystacks loom up on every rnea dow
and everything of a rural natuie is indi
cative of full-measured prosperity and
It is not strancro that Oklahoma nre-

The bulk of its settlers went into the
country for a home, not for indulgence
in tho painted fables of pioneer life.
They went there for a home, and when
they gained the requisite land for a
foundation, they proceeded without de
lay or hesitation to make them a home.
They brought experience with them:
they understood that a farm enclosed is
infinitely better than an unfenced one;
they realized that the earlier tho fruit
trees were planted, the sooner they
would give a profitable return: they did
not undervalue tho good of meadow
lands, or hirk the duty of plowing
thoroughly and deep.
Tho result is, that for a new country,
Oklahoma is in tip-top coudition. Bo
sides it is being constantly replenished
from the east, for the
trade in farm lands is excellent. '
With the piospect of three important
and successive openings w ithm the next j
year, Oklahoma bids fair to become both j

The worst case of gerrymander that
ever occurred in this country was perpe
trated last year by the legislature of
Wisconsin. This was one of the evil
effects of the political hallucination that
transferred the control of the state from
Republican hands into the hands of a mon
grel opposition. In redistricting the state
into assembly and congressional districts
they ignored" county lines and bounda
ries and parceled out the territory ac
cording to needs of the opposition and so
as to practically disfranchise the largest
number possible of Republicans. But,
thanks to the intelligence and integrity
of the btate supreme court, the perni
cious work wont stand. The court says
the ledistricting act is unconstitutional
and void. This decision reinstates the
former law and district boundaries, but
it is presumable that the father of Peck's
bad boy, who is governor of the state,
will convene the legislature in errtra ses
sion to do the gerrymander act over
It is a singular fact that while the
noithern legions have been repeatedly
asoiled, scarcely any voyages in the
southern polar lands have ever been es
sayed. Edgar Allen Poo's tale of A. Gor
don Pym, who was down in a seeming
vortex, while fascinating, was also ex
asperating because it broke off in the
middle. Since that time a vast region
circumjacent to the Austral pole has re
mained shrouded in mystery, which no
serious attempt has been made to pene
trate. Xow, however, the veil may bo
lifted. Captain Gray, an old Scotch
whaler, will conduct an expedition to
exploie the Antarctic regions in search
of whales. A son of Baron Xordensk
jold, tho famous Artie explorer, will
act as medical officer to the expedition.
It is now given out with some show of
scientific authority that the reason Glad
stone and the pope have attained such a
ripe old age is on account of their sim
plicity of habits and frugality of fare
and varied employment for the mind.
Like in all sciences, there is some bom
thousands of other cases, hygienic care
avails nothing. In many instances care,
too zealous care, has been tha primary
cause of disease and death.
Tho Texas legislature, by a practically
uuanimos vote, a few days ago passed a
lesolution requesting the stato's con
gressional delegation to support the
Bland free coinage bill now before the
house. A day or two later, by almost
as unanimous vote Mr. Mills was elected
to the TJ. S. senate, although it is under
stood that he is opposed to free coinage.
Tin's shows that the Democrats care very
little for the private views of a man on a
leading question. If they want to give
him preferement they do so, and trust
to his honesty to obey their instructions.
There is a pointer in this coincidence for
llill and his coterie of clacquers.
Tho criticism of Col. Joselyn, in an
other column, of an editorial comment in
yesterday's Eaglk of the attitude of the
"Democratic farmers of the south," as
given by the Atlanta Constitution, is dis
ingenuous and unwarranted, in the
main. What the Eagle said and meant
to express was to condemn the idea of
sectional and narrow partisan diciation,
such as the Constition plainly declared
to be the determination of the class men
tioned, in the matter of free coinage of
silver. As to the merits of the coinage
question per se and Colouel Joselyn's de
ductions and conclusions we leave the
reader to judge.
The story that Hill has declared that
he is not a candidate for president not
now may not be actually true: that is
to say, he may not have made such
declaration, but it is a fact, as to his
chances for securing either the election
or nomination. Hill is a sorry stake for
a statesman, but ho is too shrewd a
politician to lay himself out in a hope
less clwse. Whenever he has pursued
the phantom far enough to make him all
right in his imagination for the nomi
nation four years hence, he will find a
convenient pretext to bow himself out of
the niesent contest.

FEES COINAGE AND 5HB PEOPLE
To the Editor of the Eale-
Ia your leading editorial of tho 23rd
inst. you criticise an excerpt from the
the Atlanta Constitution which declares
that "Democrats who talk about post
poning the issue of free coinage have no
knowledge of the temper of the Demo
cratic farmers of the south."
"The leading Democratic paper of the
south," which you truly say the Consti
tution is, is simply warning its party
leaders that they do not comprehend the
situation among the people and that
Democracy in order to hold them must
respond to their demands, otherwise
they will be forced into the People's
And yet it seems to me I remember
having seen insinuations that the Alli
ance is a southern Democratic sideshow
to demoralize Republican states, or
something to that effect.
"Southern Democratic dictation" in

dpmands of western farmors, which are
identical with those of the south, being
western Republican dictation." Not
The farmars of the northwest, the west
and the south are ali iu the same boat.
They have been for years pleading witti
their leaders for a readjustment of bur

controlled in their action by a power, au
influence lying in ambush, concealed
from view, but which compassed its pur
poses in the end.

It is not that finance is an importaut
question, for that they knew before, but
that while it affects the interests of all
the people who it is not to be forgotten
are the government, in the last analysis
it is controlled altogether in its own
interest, as you say, but not as you
mean, "by a single class in a circum
scribed section" and that is Wall street,
reinforced by tho foreign money power,
which is the real antagonist.
Finance indeed! with a system im
posed upon the people for the nineteen
years last prist, which in its inception
and continuance was and is wholesale
spoliati6n, and that with deliberate in
tent. A full comprehension of the issue
demonstrates this beyond question.
Gold is the standard of money made
so by the intiigue of a foreign money
power and since 1873, when silver was
demonetized, it has risen in purchasing
power, as compared with wheat, corn,
oats, cotton and silver full 40 per cent.
and bonds, mortgages, all evidences of
debt in short, in the same proportion.
Any one who does not see the force of
this had better stop aud study thoroughly
the first principles of finance lest he say
