CANNOT GO BEHIND THE RETURNS.
The Electoral Commission last Wednes
day reached a decision on the most im
nnrf ant tmint in the Florida case. After
a full hearing of the arguments oo both
milpB. it was determined by a vote of
eight to seven that "no evidence would
be received or considered by the Com
mission, wbicn was not submitted to the
joint convention of the two houses by
the President of the Senate with differ
ent certificates, except such as relates to
tbe eligibility of F. C. Humphreys, one
of the electors." The vote stood as fol
lows: Yeas Bradley, Miller, Strong,
Edmunds, Frelinghoren, Morton, Gar
field, Hoar. Nays : Clifford, Field, Bay
ard, Thurman, Abbott, Hunton, Payne.
This decision is regarded as virtually
settling the Louisiana as well as the
Florida case, and sustains the ground
taken by Republicans generally on the

Peterson's Magazine for March
opens with an exquisite steel engraving,
"Coming Home," which is alone worth
the price of the number. This is fol
lowed by a double-sized colored fashion
plate, with five figures ; then comes a
colored pattern for a tidy on Java can
vas; then a charming engraving, ''The
Fast Express," and then some forty other
illustrations of fashions, work-table pat
terns, etc. The stories are also uuusually
good this month. We do not see how
- any lady can do without this magazine.
The price to single subscribers is only
two dollars a year. To clubs it is cheaper
still." Specimens are sent, gratis, to those

It will be recollected that sometime
ago the great New York lawyer, Charles
O'Connor, wrote a very abusive and Bcur
rilons letter concerning Gen. Grant. Mr.
O'Connoris now in Washington attend
ing the sessions of the Electoral Corn
mi&aion, and the other day obtained an
interview with the Pressident, in the
ocurse of which he apologized tor the
harsh and ungentleuiauly lauguage used
in his letter, saying, "He had arrived at
an advanced age, and did not wish to
die leaving behind him, over his own
signature, what he now believed to be a
libel on a great name." As this letter
was extensively published by Demo
cratic journals immediately after its ap
pearance, and in many cases accompa
nied by approving remarks, we hope the
same class of papers will also be equally
tree in publishing the ample retraction
HAY FOR FUEL.
The people on the wide prairies of Min
nesota seem to have solved the fuel qnes
tion in a somewhat novel manner. If
bay answers a good purpose for, fuel in
the intensely cold climate of that State,
it certainly could be successfully used
here. We clip the followini; extract
from a letter which appeared in the Chi
cago Times from a correspondent writing
At Worthington, the sent of this colo
ny, is a steam mill that sends ofT by rail
a hundred barrels of the finest and best
flour manufactured in the State, daily.
This mill is operated by steam, and the
steam is generated by burning hay. To
see the monster fly-wheel revolving at a
speed of 50 times a minute, indicates a
solution of the fuel question that has so
long stood as a barrier to the settlement
of our western prairies. The universal
answer of these Bottlers, when asked how
they get along without wood or coal, is :
"O, that is the least of our troubles. We
find hay to be much cheaper than wood,
even if we owned wood-lots within a
day's drive." The hay can be put in the
stack at each man's door at s cost less
than two dollars a tun, and ten tons will
furnish fuel for one stove through the
winter. And this hay the settlers put
up while they have no other work to do,
and wonld otherwise be idle. Ingenious
individuals amoung the.e settlers have
patented hav-burning stoves and ma
chines for twisting the hay into knots or
or sticks, and so tncking in the ends that
they remain firm though handled many

HOMEFOR THE IMMIGRANT
Land at Pioneer Prices Without any
of the Privations of Pioneer Life I
Among the. many localities in Kansas
which offer peculiar advantages to the
Home-Seeker, -Allen County, as regards
Atocauon, boii, 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 tiouth Una 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 tho uplands is a black or
dark red calcareous loam of great depth
and inexhaustible 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 tor the successful
production of all the grains, grasbes,
fruits and vegetables of this latitude can
be touna in tne state.
The county is watered by the Neosho
river, wnicli nows through it from N,
V. to S. E., and by iu tributaries in the
middle and western portion and by the
luarmaion anu usage in tne cast. i&cn
of these streams is skirted by a belt of
excellent timber and flown through fine
alluvial bottoms from half a mile to a
mile in width. Water for domestic pur
poses is found in springs and wells oi
BUI. DI3G, FENCING
One of the special advantages which
this county possess over the treeless
plains of Western Kausas is found in
its timber, coal and dtouc. The average
width of timber belts is half a mile or
more, and tbe quality is excellent, fur
nishing a reasonable supply for all prac
tical purpora, a.-, is shunu by the faet
that the price of good hard wood in tbe
towns s-elilom exceed 3 JO percord. Iu
the eastern and le.-n timb.-nil portion ot
the county coal of fair qu.tlity is mined
in (itutititics sullicu-ut fr domestic
nunxiscs, and will no doubt be devel
oped as the '.vaiiU of the county require.
ror Ijuildimr an 1 fJ-icMsr st.nie of an
excellent quality abound in many local
ities, yet so di-:o.vd as to i.iterfere but
little with the cultivation ul the soil.
As elsewhere stated this ftu;ity is well
suited to all the productions of this
latitude, but Hepvcially adapted to the
growing of wheat, corn, fruit, and to
stock raising ; all of which succeed ad
mirably, and particular! v the last. The
inexhaubtablu sut;lv ot :.:the grasses
both for pasturing and for hay offers to
tne stocc raiser a r.io-it inviting held, and
makes this one oi the most certain and
remunerative branche-t of husbandry
that any one can engage in.
RAILROAD- AX 9 MAR
KETS. The Lenvenworth, Lawrence & Gal
veston railroad traverses tbe county
from north to south, passing through the
towns of Iola 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 countv seat
The M. K. & T. passes through the
S. W. corner of th county, touching at
Humboldt, and affords an outlet to the
mining regHn of tbe west, and south to
Texas and the Gulf.
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 M.
K. & T. railroad coninanios, and are
offered for.balc cheaper than such lands
can be bought any where in the United
States where equal advantages exist.
Land capable of producing twenty 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 sinple crop will pay the
entire cost of the land.
During last seann many parties in
this county with less than half their
land in cultivation raie corn enough
when sold at 2oc a bushel to pay for the
whole tract i Anv one looking tor a new
location can not fail to appreciate this
Tact, especially considering the fact that
these lands are surrounded by old set
tlements, and are convenient to railroads,
towns, mills, school houses, chnrchesand
all the appliances of civilization. Land
at pioneer prices, without any of the
privations of pioneer life.
These lands are sold by Messrs. Scott
& BOWLU8, local agents.
. COCSTY SKAT.
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 profeesi-ins are well represented:
and property can now be pnrchased 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
arc second to none in the country. A
hotel and bath rooms have been put np
at tbe well, and the afflicted from all
parts of the country are coming here for
treatment; and already the water from
this famons well is being .shipped in large
quantities thoughout this and adjoining
