JOHN PETER'S BROTHER.
Sl.Joliu has a half-brother living in
Wichita, n much oldur ami much wiser
man thau John Peter, in (ho person of
.Judge MLaiii, who look John Peter
wlicu he was a seven year old hoy and
raised him practically ; who taught
him hi temperance and who taught
him his Republicanism, l.cforc John
I'eler went oil, before he made a mo
tion to Bccurc the Pittsburg nomina
tion, liis brother wrote him a letter, a
letter full of wisdom and sound ad
vice. He told him that he would ruin
himself and his influence, and rot aril
the work of temperance for year? if he
went ofl. He told him that had the Re
publican parly put an emancipation
plank in its platform at Chicago in
I860, Lincoln would have been 'defeat -ed,
yet Lincoln and the men that nom
inated him were for the abolition
of slavery at Heart. Jie
told him that had Lincoln
issued his emancipation proclamation
when he lirst took hi scat he would
have not only destroyed the Republi
can party, bul divided the north ; he
told him that it would not be the part
of wisdom for the Republican conven
tion of 1881 to incorporate prohibition
In its platform and fur the same
reason ; he told him that the light the
saloon was making against prohibition
was a stronger and more cllcctive ar
gument for prohibition and would
educate and convert the average mem
bers of the Republican jmrlj up to
that standard quicker than anything
he, John Pcler could say. or do,
ut Pittsburg or elsewhere. And
he told him much more
which wo have not room to
quote, but all ol which was jit-l as
true as what we have given. To t li
letter John Peter St. John made an
swer, not of denial but of assent.
The feeling of Judge McLain, who
says he was born lighting the Demo
cratic party, and who c.pct.s to die
at the front of the battle, over the re
creancy of him who was at once both
brother and son, nm well be imag
ined. John Peter will not gel live thotis

A STATE FAIR.
Big Crops Means a Big Fair, and a Big
Fair Means a Big Time.
There seems to be a call year for
a booming state fair at Topekn. 1884
i at least the third of a scries of years
which have placed this great state in
the front rank. That we have lately,
Hud for the first time, furnished a can
didate for the presidency does not
allect the matter. It is not that which
wo have in our luimR It is the fact
that we can furnish candidates and
everything else. We are great mater
ially. Wo overflow with every means
of wealth, luxury and intelligence. We
excell the lllue-tSrass Region in the
production of lino stock, and the rich
alluviau of Illinois in the raising
of grain. Our yield of wheat
this year is fifty million bushels. (Jttr
corn is ns yet uncalculated, but is at
least twenty per cent, more than last
year. To give an approximate idea of
what wo have beeu doing, it is estimat
ed that the market value of the pro
ducts of the boil this year is enough
to place one hundred dollars in the
pocket of every man. woman and
child in the state, while the funds
afloat in the country at large is n!y
some thirty odd dollars per capita. In
Europe it i only some thirteen to sev
enteen dollars per head.
But the chief reason advanced i
tock. Wc have at our lingers eniU
the cheapest means of modern tunes
for the rapid and legitimate accumula
tion of riches. The rolPng landscape,
whose treeless silence was a few ear
since supposed to embody the frow it
of Providence upon the vain endeavors
of foolish men. has become the emis
sary of wealth. Xo one can compete
with us, for in addition to all our im
mense resources of natural pasturage,
wc raiso feed a well. Kansas could
during the coming winter feed all the
countless herds of the southwest.
There is only one thing in which we
lack quality. To raiso the standard,
to enable men in the important
matter of showing tho best,
tock-shows and agricultural fairs
were originated. The managers
of our state fair for tbls year arc bent
upon making it the greascst stock show
in the west. There is bo fear bill that
the best animals of thwr kind from
everywhere will be there. Breeders
understand the capacties of Kansas,
and that their displays are valuable to'
Every feature of the usual agricul
tural fair will, of course, be repre
sented. If there were no better dis
play of stock than usual, the size,
quality and plentifulness of every
product would be worth a visit. A
new and unique line of out doors
amusements has been arranged for,
and as the immense crowd grows
tired of display, they will be enter
tained with novelties.
Not to bj left out in any thing
which touches the national interests
of the people along the line of the
road. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa
I'e has made its rates to the fair from
anywhere on the Main line or branch
es in Kansas, One Cent per mile.
The place is conveniently appropri
ate. Topeka, now one of the hand
somest cities of America, is accustom
ed to taking earc of excursionists, and
better fixed by fifty ycr cent than she
was year ago.
The Commonwealth says : Wc are
in receipt of the Concordia Eagle, a
Democratic paper published at Van
dalia, Louisiana. It has a column
about the changes in the Democratic
party in that and adjourning parishes.
It says there is evidence that Cleve
land will get but a very light vote,
not to exceed fifty in the parish, and
it polled 1.415 for Hancock in 1880, as
against 800 for Garfield. About the
same state of things exist in the ad--joining
parish of Catahola. Col.
George Walton, one of the leading
Democrats of the parish and of the
state,! out in u letter giving his lea
sons for supporting Blaine. He says
the free trade influences of the Demo
cratic party would bring about dire
results for the state The paper pub

Its anxiety for the moral and mater
ial welfare of this parish and state,
superior to his attachment to puny,
its sense ofju-tice and fairness belter
than its political predjudiec and with
no hobbies, inconsistent with its duly
to the public, the Eagle will, during
the contest before us, deal, as it alway
has dealt, squarely and honestly with
its readers. And while believing that
no benefit can be secured either to in
dividuals or communities iu ex parte
discussions nor good accomplished by
the suppression of fact or the exercise
of falsehood, we propose iu this e cut,
a-- ever, to take the straight forward
course, the course of justice and right,
heedless alike of censure or applause.
There is a serious political division iu
this parish indeed, iu the district and
state and, in this schism, arc included
many of our bct, our most thought
ful, our substantial, public spirited and
patriotic citizens. These believe that
the evils which have crept into the
Democratic party may never be cor
rected within its ranks, and intend to
battle for their opinion from without.
Though regretting their method, we
are forced to respect their moiive and
to grant them the consideration they
arc entitled to. Time and again has
ihe Eagle uttered warnings of the
consequence which must surely follow
the persistent exercises of dishonest
methods iu patty conventions, and
general elections. The worst is now
upon u. Vet, ever true to Democratic
instincts, the Eagle will still be found
fightiii"; the enemies of Democracy,
both wilhiu, as well as without the
ranks of the Democratic party.
We believe that if an effort i put
forth by Republicans not only Louis
iana, biit other southern states will
east their electoral votes for Hlaine.
Of course, if there could be nil honest
election a number of (hem would, but
aside from that, the better element Iu
the Democratic party iu the south are
realizing that it is policy for them to
be in accord with the better element
of the north Mr. Wnllton in bis ad

that purpose. To subserve the end
of consistency it should contain the
following additional planks:

that the Republican party is the only
political organization which has ever
accomplished any practical results for
prohibition, and by further rea-on of
the fact that the Democratic parly has
committed itself fairly iu favor of free

ary legislation, therefore,
Resolved, That to show our grati

That portion of Mr. Blame's letter
ihich relates to the civil service, has
rawn forth favorable comment from
lie strniHTst miners in the rminln.
Here is a sample paragraph from the
Now York Tribune:
.Mr. Blaine's adversaries will be
startled by his reasoning on the civil
service question, which not only sur
passes Ihe utterance of any other lead
er of that reform in clearness, but
looks far beyond the existiiiir law or
any measure et proposed Ly its advo
cates. The simple statement that Mr.
Blaine, in his long career, has request
ed but four removals from otlico. and
those for non-political and conclusive
reasons, may be pondered by Mr. Cur
tis, it is in order lor many gentle
men to justify themselves, if "they can.

on this question so falsely.
The resignation of Mr. Thomas
Nickerson as president of the Mexican
Central, has been accepted, to take ef
fect August 4th. His age requires
that he should be relieved of s.. great
a responsibility. Isaac T. Burr, a
director of the company, has been
chosen to fill the position until a per
manent successor can be -ilecteil. For
this position Levi C. Wade, lho vice
president, and A. E. Touzalin, vice

YOUNG MATTHEW SIMPSON.
At an Indian Camp Meeting Sixty Years
The Rev. Aaron Gurucy in North
western Christian Advocate :
On Sunday morning the love feast
was a inciting time; "the shout of a
lung was iu the catnp," and at its
close hundreds of shining Methodist
faces, whose eves were dewy with
"tears that had no bitterness" told
that God was iu the midst of his peo
ple. And now the great congregation
is gathering. J'l'he rude slat benches
arc preempted at once by those who
arc hungry to hear every word of the
11 o'clock sermon. The Rev. Richard
liargravc, then in his prime, an J a
"prince of God;" is known to have
reached the home of a brother iu the
neighborhood the night before. He is
expcctcil on the ground every mo
ment. The older brethren say he will
certainly preach, though no announce
ment has been made as to the occu
pant of the pulpit, and all eyes look
expectant as from the door in the rear
of the stand the presiding elder, the
Rev. AVm. II. Goode, enters upon the
platform. He looks over the throng,
gives some direction about seating
the vast congregation, and aks the
brethren to sing. And such a burst of
songs-iof artistic, bul irratid with the
"unction from on high."
As that songs rolls, an ocean of mel
ody, out through the forest, through
that opcil door, enter upon the pkit-
lorm John 1.. buiitli, Samuel It. lsreu
tou, Aaron Wood. Richard Harsrrave
and several, other well-known circuit
preachers Along with them a very
voting looking man, smooth shaven,
ruddy face, low forehead, a shock of
brojvu hair, almost red, growing very
near to his eyebrows,
URESSKH IN A SUIT OK IJI.UK JEANS,

A 11 eyes are fastened on the great
man so well known, so much loved,
wlio comes witli Inm. 'lliey now in
prayer, rise, take their seats, and the
presiding elder bauds to his young
stranger the Bible and the hymn-book.
'Listen, a little hum of a whisper goes
like a ripple through the throng. Who
is he." Do you know luinr we turn
to our frieud, iPitlaRS-leader saving,
"Who is that?" "1 don't know him.
He hain't a traveling preacher. I know
all the preachers of the conference.
He is a local, 1 reckon."
"Will they nut him up to preach?"
"Certainly not; the elder has more
sense. I think Urother llarirravc will
pniach. They are going to let this
local preacher opeiu the service, 1
think, to save Brother Hargrove's
strength tor a grand cilort. '
Now the stranger arises, reads the
hymti, ami they sing again; then he

lie began with a simple, plain des
cription ot tlie.lewisli sacntice which,
at the very hour of the crulixion, wa3
being oll'ered in the temple. As he
wanned up to his theme he cciucd to
have a mental vision of tin whole
scene. In realistic terms he described
and pointed oul the gorgeous beauty
of the temple, the smoking and blood
stained altar, the slain lamb upon it,
the golden altar of intense, the sprink
ling priest within the veil, ihe white-
robed Levitcs intoning the silver
psalms until the congregation seemed
to sec the imposing rites of the Jewish
ritual atonement iu action before their
e es. Then he changed the scene, and
took iheui to Golgotha, without the
gale, and contrasted the Christian sac
rifice without the gate, the true "Lamb
of God'' offered on Calvary's moun
tain altar, the ollering of that body
prepared by the divine high priest of
our confession. So real was his ins
cription that we seemed to be gathered
around the cross, to hear reviling Jews
and insulting mobs; we saw ihe gam
bling soldiers and parted raiment; then
Tin: Awrn., iionitou or iuh:at imuk-
the earthquakes heave the bursting
rocks; the convicted centurion's, apt
confession. Then at the cry from' the
sufferer's pallid lips: ' It is finished,''
he turned and pointing to thc spot
where lie had placed the temple he
said: "Seel see! its vail is rent; its
holy of holies is uncovered. The Jew
ish "priests wc need no more for our
great High Pricsi. the only Christian
priest has entered through death into
the seen holy, having obtained eternal
salvation for Us."
This is but a dim outline of that
grand sermon, remembered from my
boyhood, Its effect on the audience I
can never forget. The surprise and
power of the contrast between what
they expected lrom that hoyish strau
gcrand what they received from that
prince of preachers heightened its ef
fect, Agiin I seem to sec their eyes
kindle, their faces brightou, as the
eye of the preacher burns with a light
from heaven and his glowing periods
roll like a river ol lire iu an unbroken
tide of pathos and power on their
hearts. They swayed to aud fro in
sympathy with his movements, they
rose and fell to the rythm of his ges
tures, the sobed, they wept, they
shouted, as he unrolled before them
