WESTERN KAS. WORLD.
W.S. TILTON, Editor.
Saturday, June 6f 1885.
The judicial committee' met at
Millbrook on Monday. B. F. Morgan
represented this county. The judicial
convention is called to meet at Millbrook
on July 25. If vre ever receive a copy of
the proceedings, we will perhaps be able
to name the basis of representation, as
well as to give the reason of the commit
tee for calling the convention in the hot
test week in the year and at least sixty
days before any work will be done in the
interest of the nominee of the conven
tion. A TOUCHING TESTIMONIAL.
The petition of the Trego county bftr
and our county officers to Judge Pratt to
be a candidate for Judge again is a step
which the World fully endorses.
Whether we have spoken of him privately
or through the columns of the
Wobld, the gist of our remarks has been
that, in the case of Judge Pratt consent
ing to become a candidate, we would sup
port him against the whole of any pos
sible field of candidates which could be
made up. There are other good lawyers
in this district, who would make splendid
judges. When one of these gets the po
sition, he will be almost sure to want it
for at least two terms. We believe that
Judge Pratt's health has so far improved
that he could afford to fill the position
for the coming term. If he consents to
become a candidate, we see no reason to
doubt that he will be nominated trium
phantly on the first ballot.
Wo have a worthy judge. It would be
the proper thing to retain him.

We received a pleasant business call

Mr. P. McFarland, the genial pro
prietor of the hotel at Buffalo Park, was
in town on Monday and Tuesday.
Land looking is going on with vigor,
but, as far as settlement in Trego county
is concerned, it is not remarkably rapid.
A correspondent of the Dodge City
Coivboy says: "Ealpk Frick, of Wa
Keeney, is visiting his many friends in
our little burg."
Some two-legged capering conun
drums got in their fun Wednesday night
by putting McKnight Bros.' sign against
the front doors of the bank, hauling Wer

wagon in front of the owners' doors, and
hanging a barrel on a post a little further
down the street.
Six dollars and sixty cents per acre
is the price for which Mrs. Ben C. Bich

her at $4.05 per acre. We do not mean
to complain at the lowness of these

A BEAUTIFUL DAY.
A SUCCESSFUL DAY.
1,500 People in Attendance.
The Procession 1,000 Strong.
SENATOR PLUMB ON HAND.
Ellis Post Also Present.
The Program of Exercises Well Executed.
May 30 opened beautifully, and turned
out to be what many were pleased to call
a perfect day.
At the usual hour for such arrivals,
people began to pour in from the country
for many miles around. The people
seemed as happy as the day.
About 12:30 about an hour before the
expected time the special train carrying
Senator Plumb, the orator of the day,
pulled up at the depo. Very many hearts
were unexpectedly made glad by the
arrival on the same train of the Ellis
Post, G. A. B., and the Post drum corps,
a lot of fine looking sons of veterans, who
also were handsomely uniformed. There
were also a number of other visitors on
board the train.
After everybody had had the privilege
of enjoying an elegant dinner at either
some public or private house, the hour of
2 o'clock had arrived. The procession
was then formed by Marshal Carson, in
front of Grand Army hall, very nearly in
accordance with the program, the Ellis
Post and their drum corps occupying the
most advanced positions. On the way to
the cemetery, the procession was marched
over the ground which was named in the
program. We estimate that a thousand
persons were in the procession. The
appearance of the grand body of men,
women, and children, as they moved over
the prairie, filled with wonder the hearts
of the stranger. He could not see whence,
on these seemingly barren plains, so
many people could emerge.
On reaching the cemetery, the pro
cession was halted, and the members of
the Grand Army were drawn up in line
just to the west of Comrade Fuson's
grave. Here the chaplain prayed, and
the commander delivered his address.
Both did elegantly. Good music was
sent forth. Tho graves of all the com
rades were 6trewn by fair hands with a
wealth of flowers.
The salute was fired by Ellis Post.
Three volleys were fired.
The ceremonies at the cemetery, and
getting back to town, caused it to be
about four o'clock before Senator Plumb
could begin his oration. The opera hall
had been seated, with the idea on the
part of a person or two who, we insist,
don't know quite well enough the rallying
qualities of our people that the crowd
would be so small as to "look bad in the
raw air." Well, the upshot of the matter
was that there was not one-half room
enough in the hall to accommodate the
crowd; and after the front of the opera
building had been reached from the cem
etery, the scats had to be moved onto the
ground, and the organ "sent tumbling
a'ter." Of Senator Plumb's oration, we
could not well speak too highly. His
delivery was calm, dignified and strong.
He spoke of the debt which the nation
nation owes its defenders; of the repairing
of the great armies of the Union to their
homes, and their falling into such civil
pursuits as would render them independ
ent and useful citizens; of the part
which they have played in opening up to
settlement of the great legion west of the
Mississippi. The speaker's remarks
called forth frequent applause. All his
auditors were glad that they had heard
Soon after the conclusion of the oration,
the Ellis Post, drum corps and others
who had come from Ellis on the special
train, started home by the same convey
ance. Of the conduct of Marshal Carson, his
assistants and all others who had a part
to perform in shaping to success the ex
ercises of Memorial day, the Wobld here
records: Well done, faithful servants!
The 30 day of May, 1885, is one which
will long be remembered with pleasure by
the citizens of Wa-Keeney. Its results
