SO LARGE A MORNING PAPER.
We have received No. 4, Vol. 1, of the
"Wichita Daily Eagle, a thirty-two column
morning paper, with Col. M. M. Slurdock
as editor. Col. Murdock hag been engaged
in publishing the "Weekly Eagle in that
city "from the time whereof the memory of
the oldest inhabitant runneth not to the
contrary," and always made a good paper.
lie is to be congratulated upon the good
fortune which has tnabled him to embark
in an enterprise of such magnitude as the
publication of so large a morning paper as
tic Daily Eaglk. Its adertising columns
show a very liberal patronage on the part
or t he business men of thatprosperous city.
They evidently appreciate the advantages
of having such a daily through which to
boom their business and extend their trade.
The Eagle is neatly printed and excellent
in its general make-up, and, ovcrandaboe
all, it idUed with that marked ability
which has at all times, characterised Col.
Murdock's journalistic career. We wish
tbc Eagle and the flourishing city in
which it is published that continued pros
perity which both desene, and express the
hope that the anticipations of each may be
fully realized. Emporia liepullican.
Wichita's Daily Eagle Is upon our ta
ble, as pretty a daily as ever was printed.
It is an eight column folio, chuck full of
news and advertising. The Eagle has

boj s it is unnecessary to say that this paper
is fully tip to the standard ot the weekly
paper issued by them, and in saving that
we simply state that it is the prettiest
daily in the state. We predict for it a bril
liant future, and hope it will pay from

TROUBLE IN LOUISIANA.
1Ntcw Orleans, May 21. Todav the
Adjutant-General ordered a battallion
of the Washington artillery and a bat
tallion of the Louisiana field artillery
to hold themselves in readiness to
move at a moment's notice, to the
scene of trouble at New Iberia. There
is considerable excitement in Xew
Ibcria growing out of contest for
Judgeship in the twenty-first judicial
district, between Gates, claiming to
have been elected, and Fontellin, pres
ent incumbent. This is one of the
cases refet red to in resolution about
by Republican state central committee
last week. The senate committee,
considering the pctiiton and memorial
of Gales reported in favor of impeach
ing Fontillin who is a Republican.
Gates after much delay and marshal
ing of vote's was declared elected at
the recent election. As showing how
this result was brought about, Fontil
lin claims one precinct known as
Bayou Pugeon at the dale of the re
cent election was overflowed, and the
election olliccrs made no provision for
an election there as no voting had
been done at that point. Fifteen or
tv enly voters, residiug in that section,
having heretofore voted elsewhere.
The Times-Democrat's Xew Iberia
special says : It seems that reports
covering the political situation in St
Martin's parish is very much exagger
ated. So far there has been no dis
turbances except a few weeks ago.
when a crowd of hoodlums composed
of Fontillin's backers paraded the
streets at night, firing cannon and
pistols, and making threats that they
would spill the last drop their blood
in seating Fontillin. The past two
weeks have been quiet, but all sorts
of rumors are afloat to the cflect that
Fontillin has organized negroes to de
fend him, and help rcit the seating
of Gates. Rumors have run highjor
the past few days, the cause of which
is supposed to be the forming of the
militia company. These rumors do
great damage to the business of Xew
leberia. The country people are
afraid to come to town they think
the war is going on among us.

LAND GRANT FORFEITURES,
Washington, May 24 The senate
committee on public lands to-day de-
cided to report buis forfeiting land !
.grants opposite tl.c uncompleted por-
I tions of the Northern Pacific mam
'and branch .lines and 'he Atlantic &
I Pacific railroads. Senator Plumb,
clmirminof the committee, says it is
impossible to calculate the number of
acres involved, as in both cases some
of the laud was taken up before the
charters were granted, and in the ease
of the Atlantic & Pacific the road was
not constructed iu the direct line con
templated. Nominally the Senator
thinks that the forfeitures of the Pa
cific will amount to about 13,000,000
acres, and of the Atlantic & Pacific to
about S6,000,000 acres.
Senator Slater, who is author of the
hill providing for the forfeiture of the
land grants on the Northern; Pacific
railroad, savs the actual number of
ccrcs forfeited along that line will be
about 7,500,000 acres, which is about
30,000,000 acres lew than is proposed
by the house committee on public
lands. Senator Slater's Jbill further
provides that in lieu of lauds hereafter
selected, if occupied bv bona fide set
tlers, they slnll be sold for $1.25 per
acre for 160 acres.
