At the Utc election in California the
constitutional convention was defeated.
The discussion over the Knsas "me
tropolis" continuss, but in the mean
time wo don't believe they have '"broke
dirt"jit any new point with a view to
building said "metropolis."
One of the politicians of Chicago, who
has reformed and quit politics, recently
preached a lay sermon which the papers
of that city say was a good ewe, and they
are now asking of other politicians "Go
thou and do likewise."
In Japan they undoubtedly have cheap
Jsbor, for they are now shipping brick to
California and selling them cheaper than
those made in that State. In addition
to the cost of shipping they pay a duty
of twenty per cent, on them.
If the question of dueling among edi
tors is to be inaugurated, it U quite
probable that on account of poor health
or some other legitimate reason a'
number of editors will be compelled to
Abandon the newspaper business at once.
In the account of the duel between
Maj. Edwards and Maj. Foster, the St.
Louis editors, it is said that they both
iijade "line shots a little above the
head." Now we should like to know
who saw those balls, the parties firing
them or their seconds. " '
In parts of Winconsiti and Minnesota
jjreat damage was done to the crops in
theulsck, Jast week, by a heavy riini,ill.
The devastated area is not large, but it is
more disheartening to farmers to hae
their grain destroyed after the labor of
harvesting had been completed than if it
had been done earlier in the season.
The report that Geo. A. Crawford had
pone into bankruptcy is denied by the
Fort Scott Sentinel. It says that by the
immense depreciation of values, and the
loss by fire of a flouring mill and a wool
en factory, he has suflered greatly, but
that he is able to secure all ho owes to
the satisfaction of his creJitors and
that there is no danger of his beiug
thrown into bankruptcy.
JJalstojt, the lato president of the
Bank of California, had his life insured
.for $65,000 and if, as is generally sup
posed, be committed suicide, he showed
his usual shrewdness in so doing. By
swimming far out jnto the ocean whiie
bathing and forcing himself under water
until Jiff? was extinct he left no evidence
of self-destruction, and his family will
. get the insurance money.
Is New Jersey Catholic priests from
their pulpits call upon catholic voters to
scratch the amendments to the State
constitution which relates to public
schools and fordid an appro
priation of publie money for the support
fjf sectarian institutions. Great interest
s manifested among the protestants and
t is thought they will gather n force- to

The New York Witness, in an article
on "Unlimited Capacity ot Growth,"
estimates that Indiana, Illinois, Iowa,
Missouri, Kansas and several other States
could support a population of ten mil
lion each, and that our second centennial
will be celebrated by at least two hun

we will miss by not being able to partic

A letter has been recently published
by one Wilder, a contractor for Indian
supplies, in which Mr. Wm. Welsh is
pronounced a "hypoeritical scoundrel."
And this to the satisfaction of the con
tractorsdisposes of Mr. Welsh's charg
es of short weights, bad meats, fraudulent
vouchers, over counts, etc. An easy way
of disposing of said charges. The wonder
is that some -of diem have not spoken
It is given as an excuse for Secretary
Delano's tolerance of Indian frauds that
he is ignorant in regard to the matter,
having been absent so much of the time.
Last year it is estimated be was absent
157 days attending to his private affairs.
It would be satisfactory to the people if
he was absent 3C5 days in the year, and

The Democratic Leader, of Binghamp
ton, N. Y., in speaking of the proposed
State convention by the Liberals in that
State, says :
"All Liberal Republicans who are not
willing to accept of the advances made to
them last j ear, by the Democrats, and
cannot act with the party under the call
of our State Committee tliisyear, should
go right lack to their old dirty roost in

Jeff Davis spoke at the agricultural
fair at DeSoto, Mo., on the 8th inst.,
where he was well received, but no great
demonstrations were made on the occa
sion, lie announced th.it he had no
intention of discussing questions that
would disturb the harmony which pre
vailed among the people. He said the
people of the great Mississippi valley
are and must always remain on, people,
that no deep designs of ambitious men
could ever sever them. He spoke at
lengih upon the vast agricultural re
sources of the Mississippi valley and its
importance to the nation. To-day he
speaks at the fair at Fulton , Mo.
At the late election in California the
Democrats elected their State ticket y a
plurality of 30,000. The Independent
nominee for Governor failed to carry a
single county. The leading issues in the
campaign were of a local nature, and the
election has little significance outside of
the State. However it is a Democratic
victory and it is in order for Democrats
to rejoice, but as we have no Democratic
party in this county it would probably
be well for the Reformers to do the re
joicing. There is really no inconsisten
cy in Reformers rejoicing over a Demo
cratic victory, for when they are
successful the Democrats claim it as a
victory for themselves.
It is rumored, and we hope it may
.prove true, thit the President in his
nct annuit message to Congress will
recommend the abolition of the Indian
buxeaa and the transfer to the war de
partment til matters relating to the In
dians. Even if it could becstablished
that the Indian bureau has been honest
in all its dealings with the Indians we
believe the chane would be a good one.
The military has to be employed all over
the Indian country to preserve peace,
and the officers of the army could do all
the work of the Indian bureau and save
the expense of its officers. Life and
property on the frontier would be made
more secure and the Indians would re
ceive equally as good treatment. .
T.vo editors in St. Louis recently
went over into Illinois and wasted some
ammunition over the JeiT. Davis Winne
bago afFtir. Mr. John M. Elwards, ot
the Times, wrote an article on the action
of the citizens of Winnebago county in
refusing to allow Jeff Davis to speak at
their fair. Col. S. E. foster of the Even
ing Journal, wrote a reply in which he
severely criticised the author of the arti
cle in the Times. This resulted in a duel
being fought on the 4th inst. near Rock
ford, III., in which shots were exchanged
without either party being hurt. So
theso gentlemen returned home, one
having given, and the other having re
ceived satisfaction. Ridiculous. Even
if dueling was not forbidden by law it
would be foolish for editors to attempt
to give satisfaction according to the
'code" to every one who felt aggrieved
at their writings.
In an article about the Reform con
vention in Woodson county, the Post
The reform movement was so badly
"busted" last fall that several men who
acted with it told us they wanted no
more "reform" in theirs. They could
yote the Democratic or Republican tick
et straight, out can t stand any n,ore
Reform in our opinion simply means
a change by turning out men who are in
office aud outline in these men who
are so loud f r a reformation, and the
result will bo felt very much as it has
been and is being felt by the President's
Quaker policy. Under the old system
of running the Indian business the agents
dtd not intend to steal more tuan nail,
but the Quakers bog it all, and would
like to have a land grant to help along.
' So we think it would be with .ho av
erage reformer ; he'd go tie whole hog
while he had his hand in.
We do not mean to say that all re
formers are dishonest, but Tie thinkMhe
great leaders of the party could serve the
people to better advantage if they would
stay at-home. ''
Under the heading of "announce
ments" in to-day's paper will be found a
card from the above named gentlemnn
announcing himself as a candidate for
the office of Judge of the 7th Judicial
District. Judge Talcott by appointment
of the Governor is at present, and has
been for some time past, discharging the
duties of this office. In this county we
know he has preserved order in the court
roomrpresided with proper dignity and
given general satisfaction in his rulings,
and last though by no means least he
has kept the business so ocoving as to
make the terms of court much shorter
than they formerly were, thereby greatly
reducing the expenses of the county.
And this, so far as we can learn, has
been the case in every county in the
District, The Judgo is well qualified to
discharge the duties of the position to
which ho aspires, and by his gentlemanly
bearing and genial manners he has made
a host of friends in every county in which
he holds court. Wo believe that he will
as he deserves, receive the cordialsupport
of a large Majority of the voters iu the

The Republicans of New York held
their State Own cation at SaraUa on
the 8th inst. Gjorgo Willing Curti
was appointed chairman and a platform
adopted when the following ticket was
nominated: For Secretary of State,
Fred W. Seward ; Comptroller, Gen. R
E. Spinner; Attorney General, G. L.
Danforth; Stal.5 Engineer, II. P. Cor
nell; Canal Cimmivdnner, Wm. E. Tins
ley; State Prison Inspector, Rev. U. V.
Ives. Tho platform adopted makes the
following declarations :
"The national government should re
main in the hands of those ho sustain
the guarantees of the amended constitu
tion ; in pursuance of the past action of
the Republican party and good results,
the welfare of the country requires a
just, generous and forbearing national
policy in tne Bouiuern states ; amnns a
refusal to use military power, except for
purposes clearly defined in the constitu
tion ; local enforcement of the national
authority by those only who arc in sym
pathy with such n policy and will hear
tilv sapport it; demands honest economy
anil efficiency in every branch of the
State and "National administrations;
prompt investigation into all charges of
wrong doing and a summary exposure of
wrong doers; heartily commends the ac
tion of officers, whether of the State or
national government, in their honest en
deavois for the correction of public abus
es, and pledges them a consistent and
faithful support; further inflation of the
currency under any pretense whatever
would be a public calamity ; the interests
of honest industry and our common wel
fare demand the speediest possible return
to specie payment : tho whole subject of
taxation ought to be carefully and wise
ly reviewed to the end that its burdens
should bear equally on all ; rcoznizSng
as conclusive, the President's public dec
laration that he is not a candidate for
re-nomination, and with the sincerest
gratitude for his patriotic services, we
declare our unalterable opposition to the
election of any President for a third
term. The public school is a bulwark
of theAinerican Republic; we therefore
demand an unqualified maintainance of
the public school system, and its support
by equal taxation. We are opposed to
all sectarian appropriations, and we de
nounce as enemies against liberty and
Republican institutions, any project for
a sectarian division or provision of the
school fnnd of the State. The national
administration by its stead f. is t fidelity to
the principles of commercial honor, by
its opposition to unsound finanancial
projects, by its calm avoidance of a col
lision with foreign powers, by its reliance
on justice and reason rather than force,
in settlements of disputes, by its firm
vindication of national dignity 'and au
thority, by rigidly executing the laws,
correcting retrenchment without boastful
oti'ntatinu3 pretentions, deserves the
gratitude of the American people, and
adds a lustre to the service in thewar of
the distinguished poUicr and patriot who
stands at its head."

Many Eastern eAJt'-T-, are much puzzled
to know what we mean by "volunteer
wheat." Tliev have seen notices in the
Ileiald and other reliable central Kansas
pipers, announcing the harvesting of
"volunteer" crops of wheat and rye that
yielded twenty to twenty-five bushels of
number one grain to the acre, and tuey
can't under-tand it. For their informa
tion we will explain that a "volunteer
crop" means here inst what it means
anywhere else : a crop grown on siuouie
ground from the scattering seed left by
the previous years harvest, witnout any
nlowimr. harrowinc or sowing, or ny
work or care of any kind until it is
ready to be harvested. Many fields of
this "volunteer wheat," yielding over
twenty bushels to the acre, have been
harvested in Saline and adjoining coun
ties this season.
The Mack Hills Swindle.
One of the very evident motives for
the exaggerated and absurd stories about
the amount of gold in the Black Hills is
this : The agents, contractors and hang
ers-on at the frontier arc endeavoring to
infuse into the simple-minded Indians
the idea that there is untold treasure iir
their barren hills, and that they can ob
tain from the government almost any
price thev may ask. A correspondent
says that the plan is now to demand a
bonus ot seven minions, ana annual dis
tribution for fifty years, to the total
amount of about a hundred millions.
llow big a slwre of thi immense amount
would come into the pockets of the lazy
rascals who live on tho iguorance and
helplessness of the red men can be im
aeiucd. The correspondents and edit
ors who have joined in the crazy chorus
about enormously ncn gold discoveries,
have done their best to help on this con
templated swindle, but it will not work.
If the Indiatis are induced to make ex
orbitant demands a commission of fair
men should appraio the desired country
at its fair value for hunting grounds and
for agriculture, with a nominal addition
for its possible gold yield. Tho Indians
should then be informed in a most posi
tive manner that not annother dollar
would be allowed, and that only a limit
ed time will bo given for consideration.
There is little doubt that the white jack
als who live by Indian plunder would
soon succeed in convincing their red
victims that something is better than
nothincr. and that rteacable entrance
would thus be given to the thousands of
deluded men who will rush next year to
the Black Hills for the wealth which
thev will never bring b&cfc. Chicago
