A TRIP FROM WICHITA TO ST. LOUIS
AND A DAY IN THAT CITY,
To the Lililor ofthr Daily V.aijh:
At 9 JO a. n.7 on Wednesday, I boarded
the east-bound train on the"Fiiseo Hue,''
bound for St. Louis. From Wichita to
Cherry vale, there was no very marked dif
ference in the general appearance of things
from what one sees iu Segvvlek and adjoin
ing counties. The rorn wa about the'
uk, ..u.inrM Mtinui ifn.k an.i people

course of erection might be seen in every
town. From Cherry vale east the seene be
gan to change; the corn began to diminish
In sir.?, the hum utid bustle of bily life to
decline, no building boom was visible,
people looked lazy and poorly clad. Tliey
hung about depots but appeared to have no
business there, in short cvei)thing 1 saw
made me feel th it I was fast receedlng Irom
tbe most prosperous part of the great west.
This feeling deepened as we proceeded into
Missouri. The corn In that part of Missou
ri traversed by the "'Frisco,'' I It el sure
will not vield more than one-bull as much
as it will in edewlek and adjoining renin-1
ties. Tbe contrast between the best tow us
alone this line and Wichita must be seeu in
order to be appreciated. At Carthage I
met a Mr. Wilson, a Mlfsoiirian who has
rentetl a store room iu We-t Wichita, he
lias just returned Irom Florida and he de
clares that in that whole journey he did
lot see as livelv n town as Wichita. Mr.
Wilson Is a solid Democrat, ami in .answer
lo aqucrtlon, said that Florida is ou the
lence, political!, ready to Hop to either
Mde. The party most liberal with ' soap"
he thinks will carry the state, and he thinks
that is the Itepublican party. Mr. W.
xceuis to have pretty clear Ideas of the av
erage southern politician every man iu the
south wants olllce or money.
At Springfield I took a sleeper and saw
no more of old Missouri until we approach
ed St. Louis. Among retiil merchants
business wascalled dull. Whole-ale houses
seemed lobe doing a good trade. (In the
levee It was as tpilel as u cetMcteri . There
were a few boats at the wharf, but not a
oul to be seen about. I went "on 'change"
and was informed thai mess pork had ad
vanced iu the last month from 918 to ii,
short ribs had advance J from 7 75 to $.90.
drain opened with a slight fractional, ad
vance. Trading was light nod although
there could not be said to lie an very pro- '
uouueed upward tendeurj, there was a bel
ter feeling in the mat ket.
All the politicians were al the convention
at JcttersouClty selecting the hottest-braiu-ed
rebel Brigadiers to make and execute
IWf for the state of Missouri. In political
circles everywhere the leading topic is the
-"Iriiti revolt." Democrats affect lo disbe
llleve that there is an thing in it, but the
Jrish vote it so badly split that Democratic
ipapern and speakers appreciate the necessi
ty of throwing their entire weight into the
breach iu order to hold cveu a few tdrag
glers of the Irish column. Never In the his
tory of the Democratic party has there been
such kicking out of the harness. A fen
Irish politicians and journals hlut vaguel
about Know Xothlngism and endeavor to
make the masses believe that Mr. ltttlue
was a Know Nothing. Hut Irishmen are
getting too-lutelllgent.to be misled li such
demagogues. They can read and see for
themselves that iu Is'sl, when there was a
