An Interesting Letter About the Points and
the People of El Dorado.
To tkt F.ltlor of tht Daily hofjle :
In our beautifully locattd little city ic
hear and read of the rapid giowth of Wich
ita, and we wish her a large amount of pros
perity. Some o! citizens i-it jour it
from time to time and hi: for Ilunehes

We nrr not jealous ol the ouug torn

"We hope that she uiaj continue to grow iu
population, in prosperit and iu grate.
Speaking of grace reminds me that wc had
:a clergyman fiom Wichita among in je

tthc pleasure of listening to n ery good

prenrhes a very line sermon; he isdo'iuent
and impressive and his dilitciy is grand.
He, too. Is a rneiablc gentleman and I
hope that he will (onllime to lite among us
for a longtime.
Come with me, iu imagination, to the in
tersection of Main street and Central aven
ue at El Dorado, and vie will see what wc
can sec. At the south east lorner of the
erossiug we lind overselvrs upon a nugiil
tiei me pic co of sidewalk. Primitive im--pticity
(which is a prominent feature in the
character ol the wntcr of these
lines) reeelvei. a shock, and feels
itself yielding to a luxurious
iufllieneo when the possessor of it takes a
walk around the corner of the new Xatiou--sl
bank. It Is a positive luxury to step
vupon and glide over the magnificently fin
ished new sidewalk which runs along the
ifront anil north side of that mail oflintnce.
A person experiences a feeling ol exulta
ttioii like that which takes possession of the
rjvptaiu of a noble ship, when he sic s along
upon lier iptaiter drek, or a feeling like
that which take posocssion of the riilerof
a steed when the noble animal Miltls the air
and bound- across the tmcnclcuid prUrie.
O primitive simplicity transuiitlt d to us
by our patriotic sire, a walk upon that
luxuriously lluis'ied sidewalk knoikstheo

the old National hotel, owned by MY. Snow.
Thin hotel was the largest in El Dorado un
til the Younkman bouse got completed,
about seven or eight months ago. It con
tinues to do a respectable business:. Just
opposite Mr. Snow's hotel we see the Uutler
county court house, a substantial building
put up for sen ice and easy oraccess. From
the sidewalk which runs close by the build
ing two steps will take you into the hallway
of the court house. If you enter the first
door to the left you will sec Dr. McGinncss,
register of deeds, one of the earliest settlers
of El Dorado, and a gentleman who is held
in high esteem by a large number of our
citizens. Dr. McGinncss is a veteran of the
war, and upstairs ,j the office of the county
clerk we shall find another veteran. Mr.
Fisher, the county clerk, served during the
war for the preservation of the union, and
lost a leg in the service of his country. " He
is an earnest, sincere, good man, and de
servedly popular. On the same floor wc
shall find, besides the court room, the office
or the clerk or the district court.
Mr. Mooney occupies that office at
present, and it is very probable that
he will occupy It for another
term, and get reelected by the usual Itc
publican majority which Uutler county can
roll up. He is another of our popular
county olliccis, and has iccelvcd the He
publican nomination for another term of
From the court house we pass by some
handsome new offices, those of Mr. George
Gardiner, ourprcscntenunty attorney, and
Mr. Wood, being notable among the num
ber, and at the southwest corner of the
cashing where the two principal streets
Intersect each other, we come to the office
of the El Dorado Republican, which is
edited by the ablest cteran itepubllcan
journalist in Itutler county. This is no
taffy. Turning down Main street Irom the
Republican office, we arrive at the Younk
man house, the largest ami most substantial
hotel in El Dorado. Mr. Younkman, the
enterprising hotel man and builder of the
Younkman bouse, is emphatically a solid,
earnest man. He docs not cease to im
prove and beautify his proper! j, but is
getting a very tine sidewalk laid down. It
will not be a grand sidewalk like the one
by the National bank, but It will be a
handsome walk; and from the commodious
covered porch of the Younkman house the
guests will lrivc an opportunity of looking
upon a fine walk aud several h md-ome
trees which throw their shade upon it.
Auothcr hotel of El Doiado ought to be
mentioned because it Is very centrally lo
cated and it's ehaige" are moderate. The
Central hotel 1" about hall a block from the
crossing of the tvvo principal street".
Win. Luckey, its landlord, is a
hearty kind ol man, ami the
farmers and others whopatronie blshousc
Iim I him accommodating.
Three doors south of the Central hotel we
llnd Mr. A. l'.lalr deep iu dry goods and
groceries. Mr. Ulair is one of the early
settlers ol El Dorado, having settled here iu
1S70. He has been in the milling business,
and returned to dry good" about November
last. The writer of this bought a winter
suit from him in December, and it was and
is a good sen Iccablo suit.
Mr. J. IJ. King, next door to Mr. Itlair,
keeps a good store, and does a good, re
spectable business. Mr. King's success
goes to show that a man with one-hall In
dian blood In his veins can become a very
good, steady, respectable citien and busi
ness man. and it proves tint men with In
dian blood in their veins can and will settle
down steadily to busiiics. and become use
ful, honorable citizens. I'. J. It.
A GOOD MAN CONE.
It becomes our sad duly to announce the
death ol Captain Anson Skinner, who died
at the icsidcnce ol his son, Mr. 1.. I'. Skin
ner, in this eity, jestcrday morning. The
deceased came to this state one year ago
last April, to assume the duties or cashier
of the Mulvane bank, which place he Idled
up to the time of Ms last sickness, which
was of short duration, and which he bore
with great fortitude and the marked pa
tience of a true Christian. Although his
demise was expected, liN wife and daugh
ters were greatly protralcd over the ca
lamity. The lormcr got up from a sick-bed
when he was 111 st taken, aud she never left
him until death had iclieved the re
signed aed eh tstcned sutfurcr.
Yt'otd was telegraphed his old friend and
p istor, at Crestou, Iovrn, to come and pay
thclast sad litcs, which will take place at
the house at some hour on I'rlday, due no
tice of which will be given hereafter.
Anson Skinner was bom in Vermillion
county, Indiana, April 15, 18.1t, and was,
eonscQUcntly. but a little over R0 year- of
age. In 1S11 his parents removed to Iowa,
of which tatc he was a continued resident
until his removal to this state. In March,
ls.V, he married Mls I,. .1. Morgin. daugh
ter of lion. V. K. Morgan, of Keokuk. lie
had been a student at the ICosuth academy
of that city. He afterwards entered the
Cumber! tin! Presbyterian liiinitry. At the
breaking out ol the war he was commis
sioned capt tin aud was made chaplain or
the -lath Iowa volunteers. While in the
service of his country, be took the chronic
diarrhea, the aclitcne-s of whiih dis
ease compelled htm In IST.'p to leave the
ministry and which at last proved hi-death.
He was nominated and elected by the lic
publicans three stucessivc Icrius treasurer
of Union county , Iowa, and refused a
nomination for a fourth term. In alibis
life aud associations he was the same true,
noble, Christian gentleman, loved, respect
ed and honored by all who knew- him.
The lovnl and loving liUrbind, rather,
friend, died in nunhood'n afternoon and
before the shawdovvs had lengthened per
ceptably. He h id passed on life'.s highway
the stone that in irks the highest point and
being weary lay down by the way fide,
whoso farthest end was almnt in sight, and
using his life's burden for a pillow, fell into
that dreamless sleep that sooths aud kisses
down the weary eyelids forever. While
yet the loves ami duties or life daily pressed
upon him be pas-ed to silence and pathetic
dust. And who will dars say that the di--cree
ol the Heavenly Father I- not best,

commences, a wreck must mark the end or
each and all; aud, every lire, no matter ir
its every hour is rich with love aud every
moment jeweled with joy, will atltsrlose
become a tragedy as sad, and de-op, and
dark as can be woven of the warp aud wool
of mystery and death.

in convention assembled, make the
following declaration of principles
and the causes moving it to the course
it has taken :

political questions, and who, for the
time being, waiving dillerenccs on
other Piatters, unite together to secure
the success ol their common views

large, can, without the voluntary I ship. They are an insult to that high
consent of the others, bind them to , -.cusibilitv which can alone lit
new doctrines and beliefs; and when-, the individual for citizenship,
ever they attempt to introduce such ) and call forth the unutterable scorn of
new doctrines and beliefs and to force those who, removed by personal iu
ihoir acceptance by the other members, . tcrest. and unswaved aud unmoved by
and, failing therein, to stigmatie
them as hollers, etc., it i a piece ot
arrogance that demands tlic rebuke
and contempt of every honest man. It
has now become the determined poli
c of a majority of tho Republican
party of Kansas to coalesce with aud
adopt the dogmas and theories of
what is known as the Prohibition
party. In pursuing this course it has
departed from and abandoned the
true faith of Republicanism, and of
the founders of the national Republi
can partv; and that party during its
existence,- of over a quarter of a cen
turv has ostracised no man what
ever his nationality, or his belief
on social, moral or sectirian questions,
who held to tho broad, liberal and eu-lio-litnnml
views of that party. Wc

solved, " That we recognize the great
principles laid down In the immortal

and we hail with gladness
every effort toward making the

powers delegated by them to the
states and to the federal government.

pursuance thereof.'aro invasions upon
the reserved and inalienable rights of
the people, and while by violence de
priviusr the citizcu of his rights,
tlicv poison the body politic with the
virus of eeclesiasticism,itud constitu
tutc an olleiisivo and dangerous in
novation, and a portcntious
menace of the union of
church and Mate. Said amendment
and said law have not diminished, but
have iticrcased intemperance in the
slate and have greatly interfered with
taxation, aud at the same time depriv
ed the people's treasury of its just
revenue, thus increasing the burdens
of the people aud inflicting added mis
erics upon the state. Said amendment
aud law hive filled the public mind
with a nameless apprehension, a sul
len discontent, with unjust suspicions,
jealousy, animosity, breeding hostility,
dissension and turmoil, where there
hotild be concord and domestic trail

and said law have corrupted, degraded
and humiliated the people, by creating
an incentive to perjury; by fostering
falsehood and deception, aud by stiintt
Iutiii2 and promoting hypocrisy and

the imperious expectations of a once
dominant and self-styled bettor class,
have abandoned sincerity, trulh and

equivocal and deceptive position, up

In view of these things and our un
alterable belief that the inhabitants of
northern and temperate climes and
free countries never can and never
ought to be brought to conform to
laws based upon oriental asceticism
and Mohammedan abstinence and in
view of tho further f.ict that the ques
tion of prohibition hns pissed from
the field of state to that of national
politics we declare onr deep convic
tion that no question of the present day
equals iu importance and in its far
reaching consequences to our institu

solutism upon the usual and
Inalienable rights of man; and we
denounce as infamous all poltroonery
and double dealing with a question s0

the community; that total prohibition
is a viiionary and Utopian idea, dem

A motion was then made to appoint
a conference committee to confer with
a similar committee from the Demo
cratic convention. Upon this question
Mr. Clayford. of Osage, nroe to
speak, lie said he did not propose to
surrender the convention to the Dem
ocrats, and he would not consent to a
conference with the Democrats for
any purpose. He believed iheReptib-
licaus could hold their conventiou and
settle their own questions without the
aid of tlie Democrats. He was veiled
down by the crowd, composed mostlv
of Democratic spectators from the
Democratic lnte Csvnvention, and the
ch-iinnati. not being in sj mpathy with
the speaker's sentiments, ruled him
out of order and bide him Mt ilou-n.
He did so, and the motion to appoint

The committees were instructed to
report at ten o'clock a. m. to-morrow,
to which hour the convention ad
journed. Tne city is crowded with strangers,
large delegations with bands ami ban
ners being present from Leavenworth,
Atchison, Lawrence, Wamego 'and
other poiuts adjacent to the capital.
The convention of Republicans favor
ing a resubmission of tbo prohibitory
amendment also met hero to-day. The
apparent purpose of the body bring to
join with tho Democrats in making a
state ticket that will be acceptable to
both Democrats aud rcsubmissionists.
The plan most frcclv discussed is a
division of the atnte ticket about
equally between tho two elements,
with G. W. Glick as the candidate for
governor. Tho two branches are not
unanimous on this proposition, many
Democrats insisting upon a straight
Democratic ticket throughout.

publican county convention to-day

PitoviitEKGB, R. I., Aug. 90, Last
evening Gen, Butler again spoke in
the Coliseum at Rock Point to a small
audience, substantially as follows : He
said ho followed the banner of the De
mocracy unwillingly, because It was
tho banner of slavery. He kept his
bargain with that party,wh'ch in those
daj s was nearest straight. Jeff Davis
was constitutionally right. He fought
for bis country until ho fouud his
country in dinger and then left the
party aud rebelled. When I was re
leased from my obligations to the con
stitution iu regard to slavery I follow
ed the banner of my country aud did
what I could to right that wrong. In
1870 I voted for a bill by which the
negro could remain at home without
having that home riddled with bullets.
In 1869 I proclaimed on tho floor of
congress that the greenback should be
maintained as tho currency of this
country. 1 stood by the greenback be
cause nothing else was paid to soldiers
during the war and it was proposed
to pay lor blood in greenbacks aud
pay bankers iu gold. I said what
is good enough for the soldiers is good
cuotigh for bankers. The greenback
of to-day is the money of the nation,
and sooii there will be uonc other, for
you cannot got much of any other. I
stood by the Republican party until it
put forward for president a man
whom I could not support. Then,
without altering a single sentiment, I
laid before the Cincinnati conventiou,
aud asked the Democratic party as
sembled to adopt, these principles and
that code of rules which the Democrats
of my state hail twice endorsed in
state" convention, and agree upon an
issue as the greatest of issues, that of
labor and of how the people were to
get their just share of what belongs to
them. I brought that before the
Democratic party and the principle
was spumed. I left them to appeal to
tlio people. I have not changed one
hair aud what I have done has not
been done in a comer. He then ap
pealed to the people to organise much
in the tone ol his letter of acceptance
THE PARNELL SCHEME.
Boston. Aug. 20. At the Parker
)olt.0 yestcrdav Mrs. Parncll held a
con(orcnco with a number of Catholic
facturers who-e aim was to oncourag
home industry iu Ireland, llus asso
ciation proposed to establish factories
for the exclusive manufacture of
Irish goods, such as could not
be manufactured in England or
other countries, including such
articles as luces, linens, friezes,
woolens and tweed'. Preparation-arc
already in progress for the establish

parts of Ireland. Mrs. Parncll made
the suggestion as coming from her son
that the proposition be submitted to
the Republican and Democratic par
ties, the acceptance of which by either
would decide for which party "the or
ganized Irish vote would be cast. Mr
Parnell stated thaias tnese Irish goods
could not be made in this country
their importation would not in any

Gentleman; I have the honor to

I repeat what I said on another occa

The choico of such a body, pronounced

circumstances as to lead to suspicion.
Her lungs were taken out and sent to
Dr. Salomon, chief of the bureau, at
Washington. An examination satis

of the case was warranted, and he in

learned that tho cow came from the
