Candidate Stevenson lias already pro
snulgatod his formal letter of accept
ance of the nomination for vice presi

and but for that virtue it would be an
absolulo waste of nothingness.
The Chetopa Democrat, a paper that
Tef uses to swallow the do?o prepared fol
ic, announces that it is '"agin" fusion,
and then perpetrates tha following at
the expense of of its brethren:

The- polecat worse than that
But hold your nose if you shouldmeet
A calamity Democrat.
The Democratic central committee of
Geary county met last Saturday and in
dorsed the action of the Topeka conven
tion of Oct. 7 and slapped Calamity Jano
in the face with some ringing resolutions.
The ball has started moiling and it will
increase in size and velocity until the
climax is reached in November when
the poor old wailer will be put to asleep
The Calamity organ in discussing "The
Credit of Kansas" and the -report that
has been circulated in this state that the
election of the "woe" ticket here would
hurt our credit abroad "by intimidating
capital and retarding investments," asks:
"Is it not quite natural tliat money lend
ers who ato Republicans shouM talk this
way, and so write to their correspond
ents in Kansas? Is it not quite natural
that Republicans east should write such
stuff to their friends in Kansas':''
If Republicans generally were as un
scrupulous as one would naturally take
the author of the above to be, and it
should occur to these Republicans out of
the state to think of this trick to make
votes against the People's party, it might
be done. However, business men are
not in such a state' of "moral and mate
rial ruin" as-to go about concocting cam
paign lies for the benefit of any political
party. Besides, did you ever hear of
Republican inoney lenders writing to any
locality warning that locality about the
hurt their credit would get if the local
Democratic ticket were elected? Hueh
as manyRepublicans may have deprecated
Democratic success it never occurred to
them to make the argument against
Democracy that the success of that
party would injure the locality's credit.
The credit of Kansas is at stake and
the Calamity people know it. They
know, as does every one else, that it is
not Republicans alone who feel the
danger to our credit through the tri
umph of the Calamity ticket. Republi
cans and Democrats abroad believe it.
The Calamity paper admits that the
credit will be hurt, but that the People's
party will "re-establish a credit such as
will command investments after the first
spasmodic timidity, which is based on
ignorance, effervesces." Capital will be
very shy of such "guarantees" as these
fellows have to oiler.
This is a new role these fellows are in,
promising to pass such "wise laws as
will guarantee to capital and labor
equality of justice in the availability and
enjoyment of natural resources and op
portunity." Capital is relentless greed,
we are taught, and what "guarantee"
does it need? This talk about "guaran
teeing" the interest of capital is but
slush. The whole of the stock in trado
of Calamity is to array labor against
cadital. Capital is represented to be
the greatest enemy of labor and the
"plain people." Now that they see the
natural outcome of this teaching, that
capital, the necessary handmaid of
labor, stands aghast and fears aud de
clines to come among its enemies, these
hypocrites profess friendship for capital.
This whole warfare is against privato
ownership in property, though not
openly so avowed. Every man who
owns anything and dares to speak of the
rights of capital is set down as a pluto
Tin's new departure in favoring capital
is dangerous for theso Calamity folks,
and we have probably heard the last of
it. They dare not offer any apology for
an encouragement of capital for fear
of losing their capital hating jaw
smiths who do their talking, which is
but abuse of imaginary plutocrats. The
credit of Kansas is at slake. The credit
of Kansas has already been much hurt.
Enterprise has been retarded. These
fellows virtually admit it, but assure us
that after the "first spasmodic timidity"
our credit will renew itself. Wo prefer
not to endanger, then rebuild credit. "We
prefer to stand up for the credit and
prosperity of Kansas.
""We wag" says Grover Cleveland,
"no exterminating war against any
American iuterests. And yet, referring
to Mr. Cleveland's one significant utter
ance on the tariff question, Senator Vest,
one of the most conspicuous supporters
and most trusted lieutenant, said: "Mr.
Cleveland has challenged the protected
industries to a fight of extermination.
The fight is to the death." Grover had
better give George a fresh cue. How
ever, there is probably an understand
ing between them. Grover is talking to
the eastern manufactuiers, while George
is talking straight party sentiment to
the agricultural west, under the impres
sion that the sentiment here is against
the the protective system and principle;
but there is where he is wrong, as
The old "aw" that 'tis an ill wind
that blows nobody good, is being in a
measure exemplified in some portions of
the state just now. The continued dry
weather is said to be interfering some
what with wheat sowing, and is like
wise damaging the young wheat that
was sown early and came up before the
dry spell set in. Added to these the fly
is said to have made its appearance in
the wheat that is up, whi'e in some
places the grasshoppers have fallen upon
the wheat and deslroye'l considerable
areas of it. These reports may have
something of fact as a basis, but they
are all greatly exaggerated. But they
constitute a timely text for the calamity
wailers who will find in them inspira
tion for renewed lamentation.

letter thus: "For heaven's sake what

ON '10 THE bTftlP.
The candidacy of General "Weaver has
dogenerated into a mere side-show a:id
burlesque. It is doubtful if he receives
'the electoral vote of a single state. The
thirty thousand old soldiers in Kansas,
who voted for AVillits two years ago,
will neither support Banker Lo welling
for governor, nor vote for Groyer Cleve
land for president, through the effigy of
tho "Weaver electoral ticket.
Secretary Mohler's last ciop report for
tho state for tho month of September
shows but tho slight increase in the
aggregate wheat crop of 35.980 bushels
over the provious month's report, adding
that quantity to the 70.000,000 bushels
previously reported. Ho tells us that
the coru crop will amount to a little
moro than 140,000,000 bushels, but of
course this will have to bo amended two
or three times before wo get tho solid
facts. It is probable that the corn crop
will swell up to a round 130,000,000
The domestic trade balances for the
country, as shown from the leports of
tho commercial agencies, show an ex
ceptionally healthy tone to the business
of the country, and tin's, supplemented
by the smallest number of business fail
ures involving a less volume of financial
losses than has been experienced for ten
years, furnishes unmistakable proof that
the country is in a prosperous condition.
Usually (luring a national political cam

possible changes in the policy of govern

shown by the condition of business
indicates a romarkale degree of confi

There are still some skeptics in this
country on the subject of tin; who btill
set down every mention of the tin in

it had it would have been peraiiaded

In his speech Thursday Senator Per
kins gave spaco to a concise statement
of his connection with the Indian educa
tional bill which has brought him so
much adverse criticism in this locality,
and in treating of his position and his
record, was obliged to touch upon the
Cherokee Strip opening. He assured
the people that the strip cannot fail to
be opened by tho December session of
the present congress, and was silenced
with deafening applause of his statement.
How near the heart of every one
here lies the prospect of such an event.
Every loyal and enthusiastic citizen
sees in the future development and en
riching of our border cities, the giovvth
hereon the Arkansas of flourishing en
trepots for the most fertile young terri
tory of the Union. Every merchant sees
in the strip new territory for trade, and
in its opening a flow of money into the
channels of our commercial business.
Hundreds of our residents, having left
eascern homes to enter anew on pioneer
life or driven by adversity to hew out a
way among new opportunities, are look
ing longingly towaid the fair land which
promises us new impetus in all direc
tions. Tho Cnerokee Strip! There is no
topic so wrought into the
interests of all of us as this.
To hear the slightest bulletin of progiess
toward its opening inspires spirit and
brightens every eye. Let every one in a
high place in tho nation's councils re
member that the nearest road to the
heart of the people in this locality is
tluough unrelenting efforts 'for strip
legislation.' Let him lemember that to
betray thorn on this subject is to insure
eternal enmity and disgrace, nor will
they -be fooled, but will penetrate to tho
legislator's ulterior purpose and forret
sincerity out from a mass of specious
ness. Let Kansas congressmen and sen

them, but this was mentioned as a mere
incident and to magnify as far as it
would tho prowess of the riders. Such

Jerry Simpson, in his speech at

came so vile in his language that the
ladies left the hall, but, according to the
Republican, "kept tip his personal and
abusivo harangue until the mayor of the
city came to the front and told him if he
came here to abuse our citizens he had
better quit, but if he wanted to discuss
political isaues to go on." Evidently
Jerry wanted to be interrupted, and if
possible prevented from haranguing the
people so that he might raise the cry of
persecution and the interfering with

information was filed by members of his

as he discovered the trick, dismissed the
case without prejudice against the ac
