BEN BUTLER'S LETTER.
(jeu'l Htiller's address, as he terms
it, was sent out to lhc members of the
associate press in print and not by
wire, it being about eight columns
long. We have read and find it not of
sufficient interest to publish in full to
the exclusion of all other matter, lie
arraigns the Democratic party for its
action at Chicago.dcclaring aud show
ing that their platform is one of expe
diency rather than one of principle,
lie also devotes two or three columns
to the short comings of the Republi
can party and concludes that the only
chance for an honest parly would be
in the combination of all parties with
Ben Butler as its head. He lays plans
and suggests ways to defeat both par
tics, or cheat one or the other out of a
part of the electoral voto iu each state.
Having been a member of every exis
ting party he speaks from the card.
After showing his course at the
Democratic National convention and
how he tried to get some of his views

The couutrv has had no experience

obliged to require the most explicit

laboring man do know that a Demo
cratic house of representatives has
jut appropriated more money than
any other house of Republicans ever
appropriated iu time of peace. We
also know that the Democratic major

as rcgat ds its monstrous Inequalities,
by a horizontal reduction of the tarill

Who does not know that the very

He then i-hows up the Republican
party in his peculiar fashion, and
gives his reason for advising his
trieutls not to ole the Republican
ticket. As to how he would haw his
frientfe do, he says :
In framing our lectoral ticket,
make a fusion iu all the states with the
suppo-cd miiioritv, ami make it upon
tin theotv; not that you are gointr to
vote lor the electors of any candidate
oppocd to your interests, not that the
friends of the other candidate are go
ing to ote for your, but agree that
you will i mi the same electoral ticket,
provided the elector, who compo-e it
aie as tbe. ought to be, reputable

is that binds the electoral college lo

it agreed that the electoral vote of the
stale shall be divided iu lheeIector.il
college according to the number ol
vote thrown your candidate, aud the
number of votes thrown for the other
candidate on the same ticket. The
number of votes which each candidate
gets will be known with substantial
accuracy long before the official
count is" made. Therefore you will
have eery incentive to vote for
our canditlate because Hip larger
number of votes you cast the more
electoral votes will jour candidate get,
ami the le-s will the other have. Anil
those who are voting for the same
electors with you will throw as in my

DR. JAMMES MARVIN ON A PROHI
BITION PARTY IN KANSAS.
rditororthc Lawrence Journal.
Some notes in the Kansas City
Times, and anxious inquiries from
some friends of tempeiance, lead me
to declare my most hearty endorse
ment of the of the recent Republican
state convention on prohibition. I
have no sympathy with any uiow-mciit
towanl organizing a distinct party
iu this state at th! time. I do
not believe that there exists any occa
sion for such a parly here, and more,
the organising of such a party in
the face of all the facts in the present
attitude of our state politics, ap
pears to me the extreme of folly. Sa
gacious opponent of prohibition
would be delighted with this new ar-
tv move. . Liquor dealers could well
atl'ord lo pay the e.xpeuses of any side
show that would defeat the Republi
can state titkel now in nomination.
Between an ultra anti-prohibition and
an cqualh ultra prohibition part),
they hope to get up a li:tiu battle iu
the smoke of which to seize another
Democratic ictory iu Kansas. This
would mean a renewed leae of life to
the saloon power. The reckless waste
of political energy that sacrilices com
mon sonsp while it praie of principle,
smack more of perou d ambition
than true patriotism. Let inn-hearted
prohibitionists beware of thee side
show.. .1a.mi Mauvin.
THE SUPREME COURT OF KANSAS.
The Christian Home, published iu
New York Citv, and the organ of
prohibition in that state, in comment
ing on an editorial which appeared
iu the Kaiii.k touching the decis
ion of the supreme court, mide
just prior to the late state convention,
gives a full history ami its iews of
tlfo case, as follows:
The highest judicial tribunal of the
prohibition state of Kansas, has re
cently been .subjecting itself to quite
severe criticism, (which we are sorry
to be compelled to believe are not
wholly unjust), bv sommersaults iu its
decisions under the enforcement act to
the constitutional amendment prohib
iting the manufacturing and selling of
iiitoxicatinir Imuors. The stmurencr
with which, by former decisioas, it tiou of otghiv pniituls of purcnitro
has sustained the law, has greatly de- gen.
ciminated the ranks of onposers as
well as augumented the temperance
and prohibition forces.
The loss of the governor, and the
strengthening of the Democratic
party thereby, it is alleged,
lias resulted in the supreme court
weakening. A session law of 1871 and
the proibitory law provides that a
man may be arrested on the allldavil
of the county attorney or other party
basctl upon mere btlicf, and not actual
knowledge. The county attoruey of
Saline county was ousted from office
by the supreme court for not enforc
ing the prohibition law iu accordance
with its provisions; one of which was
to file information, and cause arrests
oh mere belief. Gov. Click has re
cently interposed executive clemency
in several cases, where it was shown
that the law wa so rigidly enforced
that justice was thwarted, and the
rights of parties wholly ignored. An
important election is coining on; the
anti-prohibition element ol the Re
publican parly must be catered to, or
power may again be snatched by the
Democrats and their allies. A case
comes before the supreme court from
Allen count v on error, where one
(ileasou was found guilty of selling
intoxicating liquor in violation of law.
The complaint was made by the coun
ty attorney upon his information aud
belief. Now. that august body holds:
that the sections of the session law of
1871, and the prohibitory law upon
which this practice is founded, is in
contravention of the bill of rights iu
the constitution, which provides that
no warrant shall issue except on prob
able cause, supported by oath or allir
matiou. Thfe, of course, will result
iu the dismissal of the major portion
of the liquor cases on the dockets in
the courts of the seventy-five or eighty
counties of the state.
Perhaps the softest word expicssjou
of impatience we can Use concerning
these Kansas solons (?) would be that
they seem to be iu the same predica
ment of the fellow in Mother tloosc's
"Who wm so wondrous wise
lie jumped into :t brjtmble hush, ntid
scratched ut both Ills eyes.
And when he found hU cjos were out,
with ail bis niilit and main,
He jumped into another bush to scratch
them in aaiu."
But if we wi-hed to deal in irony,
we would perhaps adopt the language
of our friend Murdock of the Wichita
Kajm:. who sas: "We have often
thought that the average supreme
court is the most reliable weather
cock yet discovered." But temper
ance workers will not become dis-
heortcueil. The war against the
liquor crime will continue, and weak
and vacillating- courts ami iupges will
not materially impede the progress of
our army so intent on saving their
homes ami their children.
The glorious accounts received from
Kanas, and the stories told by every
traveler through the state of the won
derful ciops harvested and to be gar
neietl, have a verification when il
comes lo the official figures, which go
to show that exaggeration may do
its he! but can scarcely equal the

ieldacropof over 180,000,000 bush
els. The oat crop is estimated 27,497,
000 bushels, and rye at C,53."i,000 bush
els. These figures put Kansas in the front
i auk of the great agricultural states
of the union, and fairly aud squaroly
