Col S. vN. Wood was attached
Sunday evening? while in attendance at
theMethodist church, with what appeared
to be cholera morbus. He was seriously
ill all day yesterday. Toprta Capital,
Tuesday. We do not happen to know
whether Sam Wood is a pretty steady
church goer or not. To guess at it from
' his general deportment, we should sup
pose that something would be bound to
happen if he were to attend church
through proper motives.

L. 0. BUSINESS STATEMENT.
We can not be too particular in thank
ing Mr. Wm. H. Dann for his labor in
making out, at our request, the statement
of business done at the government land
office in this city for the six months end
ing July 30. It is such kindnesses as
this which fill with joy the heart of the
busy reporter. It is such exhibits as this
which show how the growth of western
Kansas has vaulted upward with new
energy each recurring month since the
setting in of the present year.
Indications now point to an immigra
tion and commercial boom of heretofore-
undreamed-of proportions in this land
district for the next nine months, at least.
This prediction is basGd upon ..the
proposition that -it is too late in the year
for the boom to be broken this summer.
In a country like this, booms never are
broken in fall or winter.
CLEVELAND AND SHERIDAN. ,
- Cleveland ordered Sheridan to the
Indian Territory to take active command
of the troops in the field against the In
dians. The Topeka Common-wealth thinks
that this action of the president is with
out precedent, and says, in effect, that the
power given him as commander in chief
of the army by the constitution means
nothing. It occurs to "the World that
Cleveland treated Sheridan with dis
respect. But, then, the constitution is
higher than any law based upon it, and
the order is undoubtedly legal in every
sense. The trouble is that there are in
our national constitution certain seeming
incongruities which time will not be able
to heal. One of these is giving the
supreme military and naval command to
a fellow like Cleveland, who has, by
fraud, been foisted into the highest office
of the government, which should always
be filled by a man combining the essen
tial parts of a statesman and patriot.
A FOOL OR A LIE.
Cleveland is a fool, or late dispatches
from Washington misstate his position
on the subject of removing Republicans
from office. He is reported as having
called a sudden halt within the last week
on any further changes being made in
office without actual cause in the direction
of dishoner or incompetency. This step
is reported to have involved the canceling
of a large number of appointments which
had been determined on by the heads of
Now, here is the phase of policy which
this report reveals: Cleveland is unstable
in character. He does not know from
one day to another what policy he wants
to pursue. He is arbitrary. He is tyran
nical. This action in shutting off ap
pointments involves the plain fact that
every one of the hundreds of Republicans
who have been ousted while Cleveland's
cabinet were running things ought to be
reinstated, unless he is inefficient or
corrupt. But Cleveland does not hint at
remedying what, from his late decision,
is a heinous wrong!
We repeat: He is a fool, or else he has
been grossly lied about

THE COUNT 2' CONVENTION.
The World very frequently addresses
the Republican party of Trego county.
In do:ng so, it places itself in the position
of a friend talking to friends.
The county convention which meets
to-day has only one thing to do. That is
to select five delegates to the judicial con
vention which is called to meet at Mill
brook on the 27 inst It is the right of
every member of the party in this county to
demand the selection of men for the Mill
brook convention, the word of each of
whom is exactly aa good as his bond.
Assuming that this will be done, but
little more is left to be said. This policy
carries with it the presumption that the
delegates from Trego county to Millbrook
will go there to assist in nominating the
best man for judge, caHrdy regardless of
-whether . e does or docs not live hi this or
that fart'cular cecnty.
In saying this we enunciate a principle
whose soundness no man will dare deny
before intelligent men. At the same time,
we are in entire sympathy with the idea
of exhausting all possible effort to secure
the nomination of a judge from this rail
road tier of counties. What we protest
against is the demagoguery of declaring,
in advance, that the candidate of any
particular county shall be placed under
the ban just because he happens to live in
that county. This is not the spirit which
pervades the Republicans as a party.
The party is greater than any man in it,
and it will not tolerate tne saie oi ltseii
