New York Tribune: The Republi
can party, through its administration
and its senators at Washington, through
Its delegates in National Convention at
Chicago, through its newspapers in the
whole country, through jts members in
the legislature at Albany, has declared
that Conkling and Piatt are wrong. By
refusing to acquiesce in this judgment,
Conkling and Piatt put themselves out
side tho Republican party and become
bolters. Their faction is the bolter's
faction, and every man who votes with
them is a bolter.

OUR SHEEP INTERESTS.
The convention of Kausas wool grow
ers which met here June 1st, was on im
portant gathering. It was a representa
tive body of our best and most thriving
producers. The Wool Growers' Associa
tion was only organized last January.
and this was its second meeting. The
members were from sections of -the
state over two hundred miles apart,
which shows that the organization has
the sanction of, and is attracting the at
tention of those engaged iu the business
from every quarter of the state. The in
terest manifested in the proceedings
was one of the most promising features
of the convention. Sheep husbandry in
our state seems to have Itecome, within
the last two or three years, one of the
leading industries or the state. It is a
matter of surprise how it has
grown to those who have not
watched it. The few statistics
which we were enabled to gather
at the convention, showed thai the mem
bers owned an average of nearly 1,200
head of sheep each, which may be
counted as something extraordinary for
to new a country, and yet the sheep
owned by them must be comparatively a
'mere drop in the bucket" to the whole
number in me state, only about one
fourth of the counties of the state were
represented in the convention. It is
probable that not over half the aheep
were reported in any single county, be
cause the statistics were only asked for
from those who were members of the
association. In the most of the counties
represented not one fourth of the number
owned in the respective counties was
named. We believe It entirely safe to
say there were a milliou sheep sheared
in Kansas this season, and that a fair
average yield would lie seven pounds
per head. If these figures are anywhere
ill be in the neighbor-
and a halt of dollars
near correct, there w
baud ol a million
brought into the state this year by our
wool clip. This will be an immense
help to the people of Kansas.
The late convention was also impor
tant to the interests of wool growers in
the matter of the improved condition of
the sheep and. wool. Like almost every.
thing else in Kansas, the wool growing
business has been managed in a slip
shod manner. The sheep have not re
ceived proper attention, and the wool,
on reaching market, has been in bad
condition, and consequently waa graded
low. The price received has been in
proportion to the grade. We speak ot
the sheep and wool of Kansas generally,
because we are glad to state there have
been some exceptions from the above
characterizations. It is one of the chief ob
jects of the association ot the wool grow
ers to bring about a better condition of
things in the state in the management of
tb.Ia growing and important interest.
The association has already had a very
beneficial influence in this regard, and
can, if it is energetic in its exertions,
put Kansas sheep and Kansas wool upon
a level with the best in the country. To
this end the association is working, and
should receive the support not only of
wool growers but all others who can in
any way assist the objects of the associ
M. W. Iteynolds announces that he
will issue the first number of a new ag
ricultural paper on the 11th inst to be
culled the Kansas Rural. There may
bo a field for such a paper in the south
eastern part of the state, and we have no
doubt but that if Milt will "let himself
loose," so to speak, and put the work
on the paper necessary to make it suc
ceed, he will reap success. It is, in our
opinion, no easy task to edit an ag
ricultural paper. It probably is not
much of task to fill such a paper
with extracts from down east papers,
which have but little application to
western agriculture, and by inserting
long winded communications, bodily,
furnished by ambitious scribblers, but
this is not editing. This is the way,
however, a large majority of the agri
cultural papers arc edited. There is
no industry put upon the preparation
of the matter for their columns, and but
little thought. They are too often in
the hands of men who seek the influence
of farmers for some selfish purpose.
Farmers have been terribly imposed
upon by so called agricultural papers.
As a class they are stupid, and are
sometimes the organs of some private
scheme. There are a few good
agricultural papers, devoted to the inter
ests of agriculture and kindred subjects.
Tbcy have met with wonderful success.
Tho field of agricultural journalism in
Kansas has not been much cultivated in
tho past few years, and there is room for
a paper of this kind which has industry,
intelligence and brains. Milt has all
these qualities, and if he will put them
into his new venture, we have no doubt
but. that it will meet with gratifying
success. We certainly hope the Rural
may bo such a paper as the farmer, the
fruit grower and the stock man needs,
and that it may be so conducted that its
merits will demand for it a large meas
ure of success.
Governor St John in passing through

emissary of tho Globe Democrat, in a
late number of which is contained
an account of the interview between
His Excellency and the press representa

hopeful terms of the prohibition expe
riment and thinks it has already result
ed in crippling the liquor traffic in Kan

extinction a question of a very short
time. He gave it as the result of his
observation that there there was a perfect
acquiescence in the provisions of the

one thousand inhabitants and over will
be visited with a view to forming
choruses to be placed under training

from. It is said that the full chorus
will be the largest ever seated on a stage

selection from the opera of Errnani,
will be rendered by over 5,000 voices.

talent made to contribute to the success
of such a momenteous epoch in the
annals of the state.

has there been such a splendid prospect
for an immense wheat crop as mere is
in the upper Arkensas valley to-day.
From Newton to this point is one suc

is in blossom, stands well in the ground
and will be ready for the reaper within
two weeks. Many of the settlers who
left this valley a year ago have returned,
and with the large emigration now com

ranidlv during the coming season.

we have never been able to get a machine that would make a long elastic stilrli
without drawing or puckering the cloth. Your machine does the work (lerlectly.
on account of the firm, round, clastic stiU-h peculiar to the 8L John; aud by in
rapid motion and light running we arc able to make nn one machine alxiut lAtd
sacks per day with ease to the operator. This we could not do on any other ma
