The deadlock in the Legislature on tbe
Senatorial question was finally broken
last Wednesday. On the sixteenth bal
lot Col. P. W. Blurab received 89 votes,
D. P. Lowe, C3; scattering, 11. Col.
Plumb is an old resident of Kansas, and
an able, honorable man. He will make
an excellent Senator without doubt.
TI1E ELECTORAL BILL.
The so-called Compromise Electoral
Bill passed last week was promptly signed
by the President, and considerable work
has already been accomplished under its
provisions. On the part of the Senate
the following named gentlemen were
elected to represent that body on the
Commission: Edmunds, of Vermont;
Morton, of Indiana; Frelinghuysen, of
New Jersey; (Republicans) Thurman,
of Ohio, and Bayard, of Delaware (Dem
ocrats). The members on the part of the
House are: Messrs. Payne, Ilunton, Ab
bott (Democrats), Garfield and Hoar
(Republicans). The Judges of the Su
preme Court designated in the Bill, are :
Clifford, Field, (Democrats), Miller and
Strong (Republicans). At a meeting of
the Judges named, held last Tuesday,
Justice Bradley was selected as the fifth
member of the Commission from the
Supreme Court. This completes the list
and politically it stands eight Republi
cans and seven Democrats. As an offset ,
in pari at least, to the Republican ma
jority of one, Judge Clifford (Dem.) is
the presiding officer. The Commission
commenced its sessions on the l.st inst.,
but as yet wc have no news in regard to ,
what it has lone since that lime. '
However much we may object to the
general principles involved in the Bill,
we hare no fault to find with the men
selected to carry out its provisions. On
the part of the two houses of Congress,
able, representative men have been cho
sen, and the Justices taken from the Su
preme Court aro irreproachable in their
character for honesty and impartiality.
Let the decision be what it may elect
Hayes or Tiljen it is the duty of all
good citizens to submit to the result
quietly and peaceably.
Tun usual bills for cutting down the
price of Jegal advertising have been in
troduced in the Legislature and referred.
The rates now paid for such work were
established before the war, and have not
been changed since. They are as low as
the prices charged in most other States,
where labor and material costs less than
here, and arc not more than a fair com
pensation, when it is remembered that
payment is always delayed a considerable
length of time, and in some instances,
fees are lost entirely. These bills are
in the interest of non-resident money
loaners, who frequently have to bid in
mortgaged property when it is sold, but
as their practice is to only advance an
amount of money sufficient to cover one
third of its value, these lenders are not
likely to suffer any great hardship, from
having to pay a fair price for the cots
in the actions which they commence.
At a recent meeting of Kansas nu! -
jishers held at Topeka, a resolution was
adopted advocating the passage of a law
providing; for the bettor protection of
bona fide publishers "from underbidding
from irresponsible carpet-baggers and
wothjess newspaper jobbers." in the
letting of county printing. We see
juo necessity for any new legislation in
this particular. The present statute, if
properly enforced, is good enough. It is
now left entirely in the hands of the
Boards of Commissioners of the different
counties to say what papers shall do the
county printing. If an irresponsible
publisher, or a paper of little or no cir
eolation and influence, offers to do the
work lower than one Qf au opposite char
acter, or even fur nothing, there is no law
requiring it to be given to the former.
The Board of .Commissioners can award
the piinting to such paper as may be
deemed best for the public good. The
former statute requiring it to be given
to the lowest bidder, was repealed sev
eral years ago.

We entirely agree with the Union in
its willingness to see the Rmsians leave
this county. From what we could see
and hear of .tbera, we judge, that for a
permanent infliction upon a community
there is little choice be twee in them and
the grasshoppers, and the small differ
ence there is, in favor of the G. H's.
Tbe Russians may do well enough for
the extreme western portion of the State,
but we want it understood that South
eastern Kansas is good enough tor civi
lized people to Jive it). What railroad and
.other lands we have in this county that
are in the market are good, and in a short
time will be taken up in small tracts by
immigration coming in from Illinois, In-
dianaand States farther east. This is
far better than to have it bought up in
large bodies by the Russians.

We notice that several of our ex
changes favor the repeal of that portion
of the law regulating the powers of
Boards of County Commissioners which
provides that accounts shall only be al
lowed at regular sessions. We also favor
the repeal ot this clause. It works injus
tice to all persons who have any deal
ings with a county, inasmuch as it com
pels them frequently to wait unnecessa
rily for their pay ; and it is of no benefit
to the county. Thete was no good rea

Bdnrds should be compelled, when 'spe
cial sessions are called, to publish a no
tice stating the date of such meetings,
and tbe purpose for which they are to
be held, so that all persons interested
can attend. We believe it is a notorious
fact that three-fourthsof the frauds that
have been practiced upon the different
counties of this State by dishonest Com
missioners, have been perpetrated at
these extra sessions, simply because no
notice of such meeting was given the
public. Had notice been given, in many
cases, these raids on the county treasu
ries would have been defeated, and the
tax-payers of the State would have saved
a great deal of litigatiou, and hundreds
of thousands of dollars.
THE CONGRESSIONAL C0J1PB0JIISE.
The Congressional compromise is a
pontoon bridge laid to enable the nation
to cross an uufordable stream. It is con
ceived in the most excellent spirit ; if
the nation walks quietly aud gingerly
over it, it may not come to pieces. That
is the best that can be said ior it. The
stream is there; there is no ford, and a
pontoon bridge is better than nothing.
Tbe fault to be found with this scheme
is not iu its details. It is in the tenden
cy of which it is the latest aud most sig
nificant manifestation. With whatever
veils it may be covered it is in verity
empowering Congress to determine the
This is the precise thing that was orig
inally refused, after prolonged consider
ation, in the formation of the Constitu
tion. To put the successiou to the Pres
dential chair into the hauds of Congress
would make it a national caucus, a body
determining all questions under the
fever of interest. It is-dilBcuIt to main
tain legislative equity aud impartiality
even now, but with this quadrennial
question iu hand Congress would become
turbulent with plots and wrangles.
Besides, it was determined that the
President should be elected by the peo
ple, but, as if to emphasize a dread of
centralization, it was to be by the people
of the several Slates, and not by tbe
people at large as a nation. The whole
work of electing a President was to be
done by the States. Only in the an
nouncement was it to be Federal. The
House of Representatives was not to an
nounce it, nor the Senate. They were
appointedto be witnesses of the solemn
aet. The Vice-President of the United
States was to receive, open, and count
the electoral votes of the United States
and declare the result. It is said that
the Constitution makes it his duty to
open the returns, but says only that they
shall be counted, without saying expressly
that he shall count them. A bublime
quibble I The Vice-President was, then,
to be merely an interiot clerk, to open
envelopes . and nothing more 1 Was it
necessary to appoint the second officer of
the Uovernment to periorm tms petty
It is thought to be a grave responsi
bility, in cases of serious doubt, to give
a single man the right to determine what
are and what are not the valid returns of
State Electoral Colleges. It is a grave
responsibility ; yet it was placed there,
and fitly too. A single man of eminent
character would be far less likely to go
intentionally wrong than a great body
of men divided into factions, with a dis
tributive responsibility through which
each man could shelter his honor and
conscience while serving his party wrong
fully. Sty what we will, this Compromise
Bill puts into Congress the determina
tion of the Presidency. It may jump us
over the difficulty of to-day, but so soon
as it is known that Congress can be made
to determine the question there can ea
sily be enough duplicate returns in every
heated and nearly even Presidential
campaign to br'ng the question into

Land at Pioneer Prices Without any
of the Privations of Pioneer Life !
Among the many localities in Kansas
which offer peculiar advantages to the
Home-Seeker, Allen County, as regards
Location, Soil, Water, Timber, Cheap
Land, Convenience to Market, Facilities
for Transportation, Towns, Settlements
and Society, stands second to no other in
the State, as a brief reference to the above
mentioned particulars will show;
This county is second from the East
and third from the fcsouth line of the
State. It is one hundred miles south
east from Topeka, seventy-five miles
south from Lawrence, one hundred south
west of Kansas City and twenty-five
miles west from Ft. Scott and lies mainly
within the celebrated Neosho valley.
The soil of the uplands is a black or
dark red calcareous loam of great depth
and inexhaustable fertility, while that
of the bottoms is the black alluvial de
posits usually found in such localities.
and varying from four to ten feet in
depth. No better soils for the successful
production ot all the grains, grasses,
fruits and vegetables of this latitude can
be found in the State.
The county is watered by the Neosho
river, which hows through it from N.
W. to S. E., and by its tributaries in the
middle and western portion and by the
Marmaion ana usage in tbe east, ach
of these streams is skirted by a belt of
excellent timber and flows through fine
alluvial bottoms from half a mile to a
mile iu width. Water for domestic pur
poses is fouud in springs and wells oi
One of the special advantages which
this county possesses over the treeless
plains of Western Kansas is found in
its timber, coal and stone. The average
width of timber belts is half a mile or
more, and the quality is excellent, fur
nishing a reasonable supply for all prac
tical purposes, as is shown by the fact
that the price of good hard wood in the
towns seldom exceeds $3.50 per cord. In
the eastern and less timbered portion ot
the county coal of fair quality is mined
in ouaiititics sufficient for rfnmpsrii-
purposes, aim win no aouui ue aevel-

As elsewhere stated this county is well
Miked to all the productions of this
latitude, but is especially adapted to the
growing of wheat, corn, fruit, and to
stock raising; all of which succeed Ad
mirably, and particularly the last. The
inexhaustable supply of tiatire grasses
both for pasturing aiid for hay offers to
the stock raiser a most inviting field, and
makes this one of the most certain and
remunerative branches of husbandry
that any one can engage in.
IMII.KOADM AND HAIt
KETS. The Lcnvenworth, Lawrence & Gal
veston railroad traverses the county
from north to south, passing through the
towns of Tola and Humboldt, and affords
direct connection with Lawrence and
Leavenworth in Kansas and Kansas City
in Missouri. This last is one of the best
markets in tbe country and is but six
hours from Iola, the county seat.
Tho M. K. & T. passes through the
S. W. corner of the county, touching at
Humboldt, and affords an outlet to tbe
mining regions of the west, and south to
Texas and the Gulf.
CHEAP laAJT DS.
Notwithstanding the county has been
settled for many years and contains a
population of over 7,000, large bodies of
unimproved lands are yet for sale. These
lands belong to the L. L. & G. and AL
K. & T. railroad companies, and are
offered for sale cheaper than such lands
can be bought any where in tno united
States where eoual advantages exist.
Land capable of producing twentv to
twenty-five bushels of wheat or 50 to 75
bushels of corn per acre is sold at $3.20
per acre for cash, or $4.00 on time. Al
most any year, after being reduced to
cultivation, a single crop will pay the
entire cost of the land.
During last season many parties in
this county with less than half their
land in cultivation raised corn enough
when sold at 25c. a bushel to pay for the
whole tract. Any one looking tor a new
location can not fail to appreciate this
fact, especially considering tho fact that
these lands are surrounded by old set
tlements, and are convenient to railroads,
towns, mills, school houses, churchesand
all the appliances of civilization. Land
at pioneer prices, without any of the
privations of pioneer life.
These lands are sold by Messrs. Scott
& Bowlus, local agents.
Iola, the county seat of Allen county,
is pleasantly located near the confluence
ot Elm Creek and the Neosho River,
and on the L. L. & G. railroad. The
Neosho at this point only needs to be
improved to furnish good water power
for mills and manufactories. Good pure
water can be obtained at a depth of from
fifteen to twenty-five feet. It has three
churches, Baptist, Methodist and Pres
byterian, and an excellent school build
ing. The different branches of business
and the professions are well represented;
and property can now be purchased at a
reasonable price which must steadily
increase in value.
The Iola Mineral well is at this time
the chief attraction of the town. The
wonderful cures performed by this water
have proved that its healing properties
are second to none in the country. A
hotel and bath rooms have been put up
at the well, and the afflicted from all
parts of the country are coming here for
treatment; and already the water from
this famous well is hein(r shipped in large
