One week from today the most impor
tant election ever held in Kansas will
occur. Important from the fact that
Kansas is recognized as the hotbed of a
political disease that made its- appear

only upon disaster. Important because
a condition of things that has brought
to the surface aud raised to importance
such characters as Peffer and Simpson
has also turned die eyes of the people
of this country Kansas-ward with won
der and astonishment, that Kansas that
was wont to be proud of her senators
and congressmen should drop so sud
denly from the sublime to the redicu
ious. Important because the issua is
The People's party claim that the
state is insolvent and their spell-binders
go up and down the state trying to con
vince the people that they can legislate
them out of debt and into pros
perity. These state wreckers
have no issue but Calamity,
and the preseut being unfavorable
to their cause, they resort to has-beens,
and dwell upon old sores with nauseat
ing effect. The Republican party be
lieves that Kansas is the best state in the
Union, and know that her mortgage in
debtedness in 1890 was but 28 per cent
of her asssessed valuation, and that since
that time she has reduced her indebted
ness 25 per cent, leaving it now but 21
per cent of her assessed valuation; that
the value of two good crops exceeds her
entire indebtedness; that she is destined
to be the leading agricultural state; that
last year she produced over seventy mill
ion bushels of wheat, enough to furnish
bread for one-fourth the people of the
United States ! that her average yield of
corn and oats this year is not exceeded
by any state; and that women are not
compelled to sell their viitue for bread
in a country so rich in productions as is
the state of Kansas.
This election is important be
cause the capitalist, the invester,
the farmers, and all who .are looking for
homes in the west are interested lookers
on in this contest, and upon its results
will they base their decision as to
whether they will come to Kansas or
not. The issue is largely diverted of
politics. The Kansas party believes in
Kanstts and her solvency; believe that
she is to become the grand central state
in the Union, and that the conditions
now are favorable for an era of prosper
ity such as the slate never experienced
before. The anti-Kansas fellows can't
believe or say anything good of the state
without weakening their cause.
A PEOTECTION DEMOCRAT.
Another bombshell has been thrown
into the ranks of the New York Democ
racy by no less a personage than their
own governor of state. Governor
Flower has just returned from a tour of
inspection along the Erie canal. In a
speech delivered on the trip he said: "It
does not take a transcendant intellect to
see that the low prices of grain in
western New York during recent years
hava been due to the competition of the
cheap and fertile lands of the west, and
it is a plain every day fact that land
valued at $150 per acre can not profit
ably grow wheat in competion with land
valued at $15 an acre." On his return
to the capital he delivered a speech in
which he said:
"Take my county, Jefferson. The
farmers have been benefitted by the
McKinley bill and they know it. It will
b useless to bring any argument in our
district that the McKinley bill does not
benefit the farmprs, for it does, and the
lacts near it out. mere is no use ot a
Democrat trying to get an office in that
district on that issue, for it is a dead
This boldness of Governor Flower in
thus denouncing the calamity creed of
his party was doubtless due to his well
known honesty and integrity. How
they must have raved at calamity head
quarters when they read that. Not be
cause anyone of them doubts the truth
of it, but because the truth about the
effects of the McKinley law is the most
effective arrangement that could be
framed of the Cleveland party platform.

AT THE EDGE OP WINTER
Oh, lonely days! oh, fretful grieving days.
Still sorrowing for summer, stricken dead
And ever and anon the querulous
Low discontented wind cries out.
The biting nights bring frost as keen of edge.
As stinging words from cyBic's bitter tongue;
Chill moons enwrap themselves in humid veils.
And pale rays gleam through cinarescent
Like ghostly memories of summer's hair.
And all her raiment wrought of gold and
Flutter but ragged weeds blown down;
The yellow f rondage of the golden rod.
Waves hero and there a tuft of tarnished gold,
Bit by the nights that dipt her warm breath
With its soft little smothered laugh, that
Across the crimson roses of her mouth
Now mute. The viols, flutes and harp3 'that
Gave np their harmony of sound to her.
Are gone: and the cicadra's drowsy hum,
Chanted her death son? and her lullaby.

SERVING TWO MASTiSRS.
Ed O'Bryan is a Democrat. Ho has
always been a Democrat, and was tho
nominee of a Democratic convention.
Before he was placed upon the Alliance
ticket, under a resolution introduced by
W. J. Babb, he pledged himself to vote
for a People's party candidate for United
States senator. He is further pledged
on all party questions. If elected whose
man is he ? Can he serve two masters !
Can ho honestly and faithfully, under
the pledges he has made, serve both the
Democratic party and the People's partj?
Under these pledges can Ed O'Bryan
honestly and faithfully serve these peo
plo? On the contrary; all of Ed
O'Bryan's legal training, all hi3 inclina
tions, all of his business education, as a
forecloser of mortgages, as a relentless
collector of debts, are against a stay
law, against a redemption law, against
any law for the relief of the debtor class.
What sympathy has he for a poor man ?
For a debtor? "What has he in common
with this people ? Nothing.
"What has he ever done in this city to
forward any enterprise? Nothing. Vote
for the return of O. H. Bentley to the

Peffer or Simpson represent Kansas in
the United States senate.
Since 1877 the average price of com
modities in thi3 country has fallen 30
per cent., while there has been a corre
sponding increase in the price of wages
in the industries. The result is that with
the increase in wages and fall in prices a
day's work brings to the laborer twice
the amount of the necessities and com
forts of life- that it did fourteen years
ago. And yet there is a class of politi
cal economists who would subvert this
order of things, to the extent at least of
forcing the American wage earner to en
ter the world's competition with the
inevitable result of forcing his compen
sation down to the common level of that
doled out in the monarchial and semi
civilized countries. Does any true Amer
ican desire such a change? If so let him
vote the fusion ticket in this state, which
is but to vote the Democratic ticket,
which paity is pledged to make the
There are a few People's party men
who are still trying to persuade them
selves that a vote for the Weaver electors
will not be a vote in favor of Cleveland.
Of such let us ask if that were so why
were the Cleveland electors withdrawn
in Colorado and South Dakota and none
put up in Kansas? No man who has
sufficient intelligence to vote but knows
that there is no earthly chance for
Weaver's election; but knows Hint the
contest is between Cleveland and free
trade and an unstable currency, and
Harrison and an honest governmental
policy shaped and executed in the inter
est of all the people without discrimina
tion or special favors for any. The issue
is plainly and clearly drawn and there is
no excuse for misunderstanding it ex
cept dense ignorance.
Erie, Kan., Oct. 29, 1S92.
To the Editor of the Eazle.
In the Kansas City Journal of Oct. 14
there appeared an article written by Mr.
Amos Hill, legarding the Hon. Jerry
Simpson, as to his opinion of the "Dal
ton boy," and my name was connected
with said article.
Since the appearance of the article I
have received numerous letters of en
quiry as to my version of the same. Not
being desirious of "getting into the
papers" but for the purpose of answer
ing all those that have written me, I de
sire to do so through the Eagle with
your permission. My recollection of the
matter is about as follows: I was a
passenger on the accommodation tram
going east on the Atchison. Topeka and
Santa Fe railroad from Erie to Girard,
on my way to Fort Scott, Kan.; and on
getting on the train here I found that
the Hon. Jerry Simpson was a fellow
passenger. I spoke to him and shook
hands with him, and during the time
the trainmen were doing some switch
ing in the yards, wo and othors entered
into conversation regarding the election
news from the south and the prospects
of the different parties in Kansas, when
che conversation drifted to the killing of
the "Dalton boys" at Coffeyville a few
days before; some of us thought that the
people there had done a good job, in the
killing, and so expressed ourselves, upon
which Mr. Simnson made use of the
language as follows:
"The Dalton boys are no worse than
the bankers of Kansas and thousands of
others that are engaged in pretended
lawful pursuits, when they are in fact
robbing the people; they are no more to
be condemned than the bankers they
This is briefly my best recollection of
that part of the conversation. I will
say that I saw the article after it was
written by Mr. Hill for publication in
the Journal, and approved of it as true.

A Republican in Atchison betfaO against
$10 that Smith would be elected goverhor
and then turned around and bet $10 to 13
with another Democrat that he would win
his first bet. Tbexe is no lack of confidence
among Republicans anywhere in the state.
The analysis of the Kansas raised sugar
beet shows Finney county specimens con
taining from 04 to 13.' per cent saccharine
matter; Jewell county, 11 to 11.6 per cent;
Reno county, from 1L2 to 11.4; Rice, 6.7 to
10 C. No analysis has been made of beets
grown in Shawnee county, which is be
lieved to be quite as favorable as any coun
ty in the state.
Atchison Globe: "Any one who bets on
an election is foolish. If you want to bet
on something, and be sure of winning, bet
that Mrs. Lease scratches matches like a
man." If she could vote there isn't much
doubt that she would do her ballot the
same way; that is, like a good many Dem
ocrats as well as former Republicans in
the People's party will do.

The unhollv Alliance consumated bv

which a fusion ticket was attempted to
be foisted upon this people, has already
born fruit in tliis portion of Sedgwick
county. The friends of Ed O'Bryan are
prepared to trade off Kies and the whole
Alliance outfit for votes for O'Bryau. On
the other hand, the friends of Kies and
Rawson will sacrifice O'Bryan, Boone

No Kansan, who loves tho state and
who is proud of its fair fame, should be
indifferent to the great danger that
menaces tho slate. By its own record
made in the legislature two years ago,

The traveling men of Kansas turned
down non. John G. Otis, member of
congress from tho Topeka district. Tho
cause was offensive remarks against tho
traveling men as a class in the state of
Kansas. For a long time prior to the
Republican convention which nominated
Chester I. Long, it was discovered that
the traveling men of the Seventh con
gressional district who are for Jerry
for congress, are scarce indeed. As a
general thing these men, being wide
awake and progressive.are for tho entire
Republican ticket. For the purpose of
completing their work, so well begun in
securing the nomination of Long, the
duty of every traveling man in the con
gressional district is plain.
On election day be at your homes, in
your voting precincts. Put your shoul
der to the wheel, not only for Long for
congress, but for the whole Republican
ticket. In this city live today a large
number of traveling men; no class of
men in Kansas so often feel the public

busiuess men of the district and state.

MB. POWDKRLY'a DKCLaP.ATION OP
In his speech in New York, addressing
working men. Mr. Powderly said: "You
will teach men like Mr. Harrity that you
are men of intelligence and cannot be
deluted into voting for your enemies. I
cannot say one good word of the Demo
cratic party, and I am uuable to under
etand how any working man can vote
for its candidates."
Democratic papers are" fond of quoting
what Mr. Powderly has said at other
times of the Republican party. This is
his view of the duly of American work
ing man today to oppose the Demo
cratic party, its policies, ils works, its
nominees. In this Mr. Powderly, sneak
ing to working men, is altogether logi
cal. The Democratic party has declared in
favor of the British system of free trade.
In that system there is no hope for the
wage earner of the United States. Men
who work for wages in this country can
only be induced to vote the Democratic
ticket this yair if tney have made up
their minds that they desire 'their wages
reduced to the forehm level.
I saw in the "Oklahoma Outlines" in
your paper of the 27lh inst that Zack
Mulhall states that the strip is now clear
of all cattle, and the department stated
the same, a few days before and the
train that brings us the paper is delayed
about six hours, owing to the train
ahead of them running into a bunch of
cattle, and ditching the tram, close to
Birds Point in the strip. Now I may not
take the,r;ght view of the case, but I
think that perhaps this herd of cattle
heard this statement, and they were k
mortified at the assertion that they tried
to commit suicide. Because we all know
that the strip ts certainly fre from all
cattle of any kind after being so re
ported, and tiien, it has all been burned
over so there is no grass for them to
live upon, and the suicide theory is the
only way then to account for the wreck

A farmer shaving is ono of the most
painful sights ever witnessed outside
downright butchery. For some reason
beyond the present depth of knowledge
the-man who "beards" in the country al
ways has a beard like a new hairbrush,
and he can never learn how to sharpen a
razor. He gets on the back porch with
his shaving utensils, and, after rubbing
the razor over the strop in an awkward
fashion until whatever trace of edge it
may have had has been destroyed, he
hangs up his broken glass and takes a
position alongside the kitchen door,
where the old lady will be sure to jostle
his arm when she goes out to empty her
With a brush that has but little han
dle remaining he manages to stir up a
lot of lather from soap that would raif.e
a blister on the bottom of a boy's foot,
and with this he coats his face till
; nothing but his eyes and the back of
f his head are visible. With his thumb
dipped In warm water he goes over tho
stubble again with a vigor that makes
his flesh creep, until he feels that all
reasonable precautions for comfort in
the subsequent operations have been
Taking the razor and looking at it
suspiciously over the top of his glasses,
he runs his thumb along the edge, fails
to draw blood as he had hoped, and
then, with a high, grabi himself by the
nose, shuts his eyes and gives a scrape
that makes his hair stand on nd as a
bunch of bristles seem to come out by
But, once at it, a terrible desperation
neems to nerve him, and with his teeth
set, he pock right on with a dctermina-
. 2,747.270 5a tion to get the agony over as soon as
-.,'- -' ! possioic
Bowls of woe break from him now
and then as an expression that poisons
life steals over his face and tor there
till the last nerve has been polled out
of the socket by that terrible razor, and
the last bit of stnbblc has been laid
Then, and only then, with a. sigh of
a hymn of thankv
y throws hh shaving
