WESTERN KAS. WOELD.
W. S. TILTON, . Editor.
Saturday, December 12, 1885.
The New York Nation, which
seems to pride itself on knowing the
innermost recesses of American pol
itics, possibly feels by this time a
certain degree of embarrassment
consequent upon a thing that has
happened since its issue of Decem
That paper then, in an article of
some length, opened with this sen
tence: A queer phase of the Logan campaign
for the presidency of the senate is the
fresh re elation which it makes oE the
ruling passion of the Blame mind to
"work" for every office which comes in
Further on, after adhering to the
idea that Logan was the Blaine can
didate for president pro tern, of the
senate, the Nation says:
They begun within a few hours after
the vice president's death to "boom" Lo
gan for the place, and have hardly paused
a moment since in their efforts to crowd
him into it, whether the senators think
him the best man or not.
In order that our readers may
know what estimate to place upon
the Nation's shrieks against Logan,
the World will say that he was
tendered the unanimous nomination
by the Republican caucus of sena
tors, and, when apprised of what
they had done, he declined, with
thanks, though peremptorily.
General Logan deserved the posi
tion. As a rule, the Republican
press of the country demanded that
ft be given to him. After all, he
doubtless knew whether he "needed
it in his business." Still, like the
Kaus.is City Journal, the World
would liave liked to see him take it
anywajr, because the Democrats
were so bitterly opposed to his hav

L. A. Fisher, the go-ahead Collyer
merchant, advertises lumber in the Lane
County Herald at from'$16'to $22 per
1000, and coal at from $5 to S6 per ton.
That paper well says: "He thoroughly
understands his business and has the
knack of buying goods at the very lowest
figures. Those who wish to do their
own freighting will undoubtedly find it to
their advantage to call on Mr. Fisher."
- E. H. Philippi, Esq., of Beardstown
UL, on the occasion of renewing his sub
scription to the Western Kansas World
for a full year, writes: "Very much pleased
with your paper. It gives me much val-
able information. I expect to locate in
Trego county in the near fnlure." The
editor of the Wobld will .say; toMr.
Philippi, as well as to others of ite East
ern subscribers, "have you not some neigh

.Died On December 10, 1885, at the
residence of J. W. Wilkin, one mile south
of Wa-Keeney, Harry Lemon, son of F.
W. Lemon, aged about 10 years.
Harry had for some time been suffering
with tonsilitis. A short time prior to his
death, his condition was supposed to be
improving. Finally his heart ceased to
do its work.
The funeral services were held at the
Presbyterian church at 3 o'clock yester
day, the 11. The remains were then in
terred in the Wa-Keeney cemetery.

Mrs. J. B. Walker reached Wa-Keeney
from Bock Island county, HI., where they
had been taking that visit among old
relatives and friends. Mr. Walker called
at this office and reported having had a
The new school election in this
district is called for Saturday, December
19, between the hours of 8 o'clock A. M.
and 6 p. m. Although the seven-thoueand-dollar
scheme is to be tried again, there
is considerable sentiment in favor of
voting bonds for five thousand dollars,
instead of seven thousand.
-Our old standby, W. W. Walkey,
Esq., of Gove covnty, dropped in, Tues
day evening, to swap a few sentences with
the head mogul of tho World. He had
been to Phillips county, and purchased a
load of potatoes. Mr. Walkey likes
western Kansas for stock-farming better
than he likes the country further east for
straight farming or anything else. Here,
Kelly & Walker have for sale a stove
for the burning of cow chips. It is short
legged, has a big body, which grows
"wider out" until the top is reached; the
top is a flat surface, and is not more than
three and a half or four feet off the
floor. It is manufactured at Leaven
worth. Mr. James Kelly does not claim
to be the patentee of this stove, but he is
sure that the design was based on his
portrayal a few years ago to a traveling
man of that firm of the urgent necessity
of an invention of this character.
Mr. Felix T. Gandy was a welcome
caller Wednesday, not merely because heJ
left us an order for a lot of job printing,
but by reason, as well, of his being a
splendid man socially. Mr. Gandy has
property interests in Sherman county.
He is the father of the town of
Gandy, in that county, and has
recently resigned the postmastership
of that place, Mr. Gandy has located
in Wallace, where he has opened a coal,
grain, baled hay, etc., business. Wallace
is in need of a business of that kind, and
Mr. Gandy, it occurs to us, is just the
man to win at it.
Captain Hey, of Cheyenne Grove,
Lane county, was a Wobld caller on
Tuesday. ,,The captain's name is as fa
miliar with ns as the Book of Nahum in
the Bible is, although we have not known
the captain quite as long. But, by repu
tation, we have known him since along
in 1879. Like the writer, he is a border
ruffian, in the sense of having lived large
ly on the frontier, from away back. He
settled in Bice county, Minn., (where we
lived later,) in 1854, when that region was
less civilized than this has been within
the last seven or eight years. The cap
tain said 'he came to western Kansas to
secure relief from rheumatism. He sells
goods and acts land agent.
