To the Editor of the Daily Eagle:
Tbe A. & I. train lcac8 Albuquerque at
tbc unpleasant hour of 3 a. in., and day
light finds us running past a dry praiilc
country with uouatcr. and very little
grass and timber; mountains looming up
in tbc distance in ail directions, but of
moderate altitude. Karly in tbc morning
we enter Ibe narrow winding valley of the
Agua Alyul. (Mue Water.) uitb occasional
ranches, and the most interesting Indian
Pueblo of I.aGuna. The town is one great
line of connected rooinx, and probably bas
not changed since Iberia) ol Coronado.
JUS built upon u high rock, at tbc foot
of which tbe road passes. The Indian arc
agricultural and pastoral; havo Urge flocks
of horse, cows and sheep, and arc Mll-tup-porting,
as they alwais bae been. The
alley and surrounding country contains
many ruins of former ages. A little further
on, at McCarty's station, is the abrupt end
of a lava bed which covers the valley Jor
tbe next twelve milc, and extends west. I
am told, thirty or loriy miles, covering
What was once, one of the prettiest vatleja
in 'ew Mexico. to.Konie very laigc craters,
from which (lowed this immense man
ol black molten liva, called
here "nealpl" rock, (sial-iuis.) This lava,
tlovv was the last convulsion of nature in
this vicinity, and Is or really recent date,
audi have no doubt covers with its black,
burnt and ragged map. The towns, fields
and houses ol a once prosperous people
perhaps the same convulsion which poured
rortb this fiery flood of death and desola
tion, broke up and destroyed the source ot
tbc rivers and and springs which supplied
Ihc great city ot Quivira, among others,
with water, whose ruins cover many miles
or country, aud where in tbe great plain in
which It Is situated not a drop of water can
be found for rorty miles around, though
parties have, at great expense, dug wells
In every promising spot in and about the
ancient city, hauling the water they used
in barrels from long distances.
The A. & V. road crosses New Mexico on
u very easy grade, and comparatively light
expense. There were no hills or moun
tains to cross or cut through. Nature bad
provided a grade across the backbone or
the continent as easy as the grade from
Wichita to Kansas City. Tbe country was
once a vast plain, underlaid fonuany bund
red feet with aaniMonu. containing coal.
Uy volcanic energy this plain was
broken and tilled up, which lapse
or time has worn down into mesas
and valley. In a row places the granite
underlying tho roeli broke through
its covering of hands lone, and rtarrd Us
ragged granite peaks high above thu sur
rounding country, forming the 'San Ma
tea" and "Zuni" mountains ultimately as
sociated with tho traditions and tujtliology
of the ancient l'nclilo races.
Tho "mesa"." h iv c one aliiupt side of
tOO or C03 feet nearly perpendicular, ami
slope baek generally, to a beautiful valley.
The abrupt side Is cut into innumerable
gulches, can) ous and terraces by lime and
tho elements, and arc of the most bcauti
hues from cream color to led witii some
times a black line of coal, and gioups of
green trees for contrast. Tills in ist beau
llful and romantic portion or our country
is almost unknown to the tourist. I have
traveled Tor dajs through cmjons and
parks anjVvaltc)., as beautiful and roman
tic as typftardctt of the Cods In Colorado,
and fcjMcred about on every side arc the
riijusof populous towns and settlements,
lW I fear I have put too much geology
into this letter. .Soadlo, .!. U. M.
If it Is derided and fixed tbat the saloons
are to run wide open mid unmolested in
Wichita Just as though the constitution
and the laws didn't forbid them, then we
demand an Inclosed police force, and we
beg that the new members to be added to
such forie be respectfully requested notto
spend over hair o their time banging
around saloous, but L put iu a few houis
each day in doiii'ometbIng besides ar
resting "drunks" and "bawds," which Is
the only work done by the present f no so
far as wo can hear or is seen on an Inspec
tion of tho pollen court docket. If a Wichi
ta policeman should happen, through mis
take, to arrest some street gambler or other
open violator or law, the afterthought of it
would make him sick.
Mr. Patrick Martin, one or our most suc
cessful farmers, whose splendid home
place lies just above tbc e-ltv, made us a
tall jcstei day morning, but like most
jUie Kaclk'h farmer friends did not come
(Minfr Itnmlptl. III. left Ills f-nnil MtfV t,i I
tbc bucgy and came up and
and came up and got a basket, J
with a half bushel ot tbe most
l budded peaches of the Honest ,
John and Mlxou vaiieties which he had
sent out from Ohio tlicgrassbopptr jcar. I
fie ha-, something upwards or one hundred
bearing trees, aud we guess sobody ever
saw nub peaches outside or this valley, (
averaglug from eight to ten Inches and ,
every one ol them arboicc, glorious beauty.
Or course Mr. .Martin has our thanks. As
we said, Mr. Martin bas a splendid farm.
lie says all or his crops arc big crops, and '
that his corn will yield immensely. Mr.1
M. lias been a resident or .Nov England,
also ot tbe Pacific coast, but believer'
found a country that entire! satisfied him
until be struck the Great Arkansas. It
everything else about bis home sizes up
to ills peaches, we don't wonder that be is
happy and contented man.
1 he Itcv. Dr. lleynolds who will preach
to-dsy at St. John's, and who it will be re
membered, is a retired chaplain, having
served upwards or twenty years iu tbat ca
pacity, attrnded the great wild Indian pow
wow and treaty held upon the present site
of this city between tbe government au
thorities and tbc wild man, at the full of
tbc moon on October 1806. General San-,
born commanding five hundred soldiers was
here at the time, as was tbe venerable old
Indian fighter, General Harney. Their
camp was near the present residence of W.
C. Woodman. The doctor says one even
ing while sitting at the door ot his tent
with General Hsrucy, a soldier sauntered
up and saluted them. Geueral Harney look
ing up said, "Well, my man, what "is it J"
The soldier looked at him for a moment and
replied interrogatively: ''And vou don't
know me General." "Xo," replied tbe
General. "Well," said the soldier, "1 mm
the man who met you In tbe everglades."
TbispM General sprang to his lect, threw
bis arms around tbc man and exclaimed,
"My God, you arc the man wbo in the
swamps of Florida sated my lire." It
turned out that this man bad in tbc ChenA
kec war warned Harney of a fatal ambuih
just at a moment tbat saved bis life. Tbc
Doctor telle us tbat tbc General offered to
take care of tbc man and give blm a borne
wltb blm tbe balance of bis days, but being
a regular soldier and know log only tbc life
pertaining to tbc camp or field, declined
tbc kind offer.

BEAUTIFUL BENTON ON THE SUN
FLOWER R. R.
To the Editor of the Daily Eagle :
The debt of gratitude we who read the
full-fledged at this point arc under to you
for keeping us lull abreast of the times in
all political, general and especially Wich
ita affairs, can never be repaid until you
run for Governor.
To oue who has been doomed to graze ou
the stale novvs for a dozen years ''news and
codec" are decidedly palatable.
Tbc city boom must be lulectious as a
number of llentouites are to join it and
share tbe fortunes of "The Future Great,"
believing that nothing but a narrow policy
of making up values and inducing emigra
tion for large commissions which many
ol your people apparently hold to be the
true way to build up a city can defeat its
continued growth and metropolitan
ambition; tbc writer hopes that the
w hdoni of your counsels for present action
will prevail, otherwise the boom may prove
but a boomerang to many.
Our beautiful little village has boomed
and now settled down to a steady growth
of vitality. Our seven grocer men aud
three grain buyers find steady occupation;
those iu other lines of trade arc moderately
active. The erection of a church aud a
$3,000 school bouo as now contemplated,
will attest our interest iu education.
llcnton Is situated in tbc midst ol a beau
tiful and fertile prairie none better in tho
world, aud no matter bow mauy railroads
Wichita may cause to be built around It, a
good trade will remain, as we are a little
too far off to bo annexed to the hub. In
passing I will remark, that the people in
terested in Renton don't want any Florence
and Wichita railroad ; a glance at the map
will explain the reason. The Renton Re
porter, our newspaper, is well supported
by tvvo able-bodied editors, who make the
most oT the situation tbe editors being
one Democrat, the other Republican give
u neutral complexion to the sheet. Crop
prospects at this season were never better.

TO GENERAL LOGAN
Pacing Match Between the Fa
mous Pacers, Johnston and
INDIANA'S FIRST REPUBLICAN
DEMONSTRATION OF THE
Other Interesting News, Notes and
Items Whispered by the Mid
Chicago, August 23. The demonstra
tion to-night marking the return of Geu.
Logan to his home was one of great mag
nitude. The Republican torch-bearing
organizations of this city made their first
appearance in this campaign, and the ag
gregated marchers numbered about 5.0OJ.
In addition to the local organizations, uni
formed bodies were preacnt from a num
ber of neighboring cities. Gen. Logan ar
rived from Pullman on a special train,
arriving at tho Twenty-second street
depot at !) o'clock. Tbe advent of the
train was announced by the firing or ar
tillery and u brilliant display or lire
works. A mounted escort was in
waiting, aud the distinguished party hav
ing entered carriages, the cavalcade took up
the line of march Dorthward on Michigan
boulevard to Lake Park, where Un-! bad
been erected for tho speakers of the even
lug. It was 10:00 o'clock before the last
of tbe marching escort had reached the
point of rendezvous, and General Logan
was escorted to tho speakers' stand. The
crowd then in the park had swelled to
about 50,000. On tho stand were General
Oglesby, Gov. Hamilton, lion. Jo-epb lie
dill, Hon. Charles 11. Farvvcll, William Pcun
Nixon, Congressmen Davis, Dunham and
Adams and au array of vice-presidents to
the number or lull 200.
Gen. Logan was received with great
cheering and spoke as follows:
"Mr. Chairman and fellow eitizeus of
Illinois: I am semew bat travel-worn by my
devious route from the cherished capital of
our nation to my native state and beloved
home. Tbc love for borne associations is
deeply Imbedded in our hearts. It was on
this, my native soil, that my boyish pride
was encouraged up to the ordinary ambi
tions ol manhood, and if 1 have, or can,
serve my constituents fairly and well in
the advancement of their interests, my
fonuest aspirations and hopes will have
ripened Into a most cherished reality. My
fellow citizens and friends, my heart beats
in harmony with yours in all tbat pertains to
our common nuuianiiy anu to our common
citizenship. I made a vow when I first en
tered public life to devote all my energies
to the interests of our whole people, and to
look for my reward io tho consciousness tbat
I had kept tbc faith. I shall ever remember
this great evidence of respect with a heart
overflowing with gratitude. I return to
you, my friends, ami fellow citizens, my
thanks for this graud demonstration. And
as it means much more than merely to be
accepted as personal to mjself, but to
tho great principles which 1 have beeii
chosen, iu connection with one or our
greatest and most brilliant American states
man, In part to represent, I therefore deem
It proper at this time to examine some of
tne questions inai uiviueiuc two great par
ties of this country.
"The Democratic party controlled this
government, with only a few intervals,
trom 1837 to 1861; and during those 24 years
there was only one importapt measure en
acted in accord with Its financial policy no.v
remaining upon the statute books, namely,
the independent treasury system. Its finan
cial policies in all other results have failed,
and havo been abandoned by tbe country.
The doctrine ol stale sovereignty, by which
the nation was to be subordinated to tho
individual states, U now repudiated by the
people. Under this doctriuc tbe southern
ball ot tha Democracy entered into a gigan
tic rebellion against tho government.
While a majority of the Democrats ol the
north were loyal to tbe government, a great
many of their organizations were in sym
pathy with the south. In 1863, when the
Democrats lost control of tho government,
they left it financially wrecked, the people
disheartened, and the country almost in
ruius. Their financial ideas and tarilf
policy had brought the nation to its lowest
level without credit and almost without
hope. For the tuturc.il we may judge by
their record up to that time, there is no
ground for the belter they could now so
manage the affairs or the republic as to
meet tbc present demands ofthe people."
The speaker then went on to deel ire that
the Democratic party bad resisted every
advance in finance and every measure
touching the security or human rights. It
bad opposed tbe emancipation of the slaves
and the homestead laws. in all
the reforms of civil service institu
ted by the Itepubllcan party, opposition
has been shown by the greater portion of
tbe Democracy. ' We find tbeir candidate
for vice president,' said the speaker, ''de
claring in a speech made by him on July
12th, 18S4, and since his nomination, that
the only remedy for dishonesty or adminis
tration in the government is to throw out
the 120,000 Itepubllcan office-holders and
supply their places. I suppose be ineaus
'with honest Democrats.' Where union
soldiers arc holding office, I suppose he
would replace them witli confederate
Democratic soldier, and where civil
Ian Uepublican are holding ollice,
I suppose ne would supply them with
civilian Democrats, In order that the gov
ernment miy be honestly administered.
This declaration from one ot tbo nominees
of tbe Democratic party shows wlnt that
party means by ci,il service reform."
The speaker said that dishonest m-n
crept into all associations In life, and de
clared tbat while he would not charge the
Democratic party with being dihonct as
a whole, he did not not think It would
profit Governor Hendricks to challenge a
comparison of administrations, as be
tween tbe Itepubllcan and Demo
cratic parties. General Logan then
proceed to dicus tbe finauci.il policy es
tablished by tbo Itepubllcan party under
which he claimed that, tbe evils here
tofore ciprrlcnecd under the Demo
cratic svstcm had disappeared. The
perpetuation of the sjstem should be left
in tbc hands of its friends, rather than
committed to its enemies.
Speaking of the tarilf, be said tbat the
history of the Democratic party showed
on the subject of tbc tariff. Its coming
Into power would be full of suge
tlons of danrr. Tbo theory of the
Democratic party that tlfe market
price of the products or this country
should be governed by thecotof like pro
ducts in other countries would. If allowed
to be consumitcd, bring the manufjctiir
ing of the country to an end. He then re
viewed what he termed tbe l'publlcan
American protective system, and claimed ,
that It bad fostered the wealth of the na- '
tion until now the aggregated value of all
tbejiroperty had reached ths sum of forty- J
Increase to more than twelte mutton of
dollar, all of which bad tern produced by
The remainder of bis speech was largely
taken up in making a compari-on a to the
condition of the laboring and producins
elasres of tbe United State and thoe of
Great Dritaln, under fbeir rtpectUe. pro
tective and free trade governmental policy.
He claimed that the two parties were

Chicago, Aug. J The match race be
tween the famous p'vcew, Johnston, owned
by Commodore A. W. Kittson, and Rich
ball, owned by J. S. Campbell, for a wager
of $5,000 a side, occurred here this after
noon. The weather was clear and cool and
the track fast, except a portion of the back
stretch, wjbich was soft. The attendance
was 5,000. Johnston was tbe favorite In the
pools before the opening of thd race at 25 to
10, and a large amount of money was wager
ed, the friends of Richball claiming
that Johnston could not go three fast beats.
The result proved that they were mistakeu,
as be was never beaded, and pacing very
close to Little Browu Jug's 2:11 3-4, r: 12 3-4,
2:12 1-2, which are the fastest three heats
on record. It was the general opinion
tbat Johnston, had he been driven out iu
each heat, could have beaten this, Camp
bell, the owner of Richball, says his horse
was out of condition.
First heat Johuson drew tbe insido po
sition, and after both horses had been
warmed up, tbey came down even and go
ing well, aud got the word "go!" at tbe
first attempt. At the first turn Johnson
began to draw away, and increased bis lead
to two lengths at tbe first quarter, which
was passed in 31 3-4 seconds, and tbe half
iu 1:00 3-4. Around the upper turn Rich
ball drew up to within an open length. The
3-4 pole was reached in 1:30 1-2. On the
homestretch Johnson began drawing away
and as it became evident that there was uo
chance of winning tbe heat, Richball was
pulled inside the distance stand, and John
son won in a jog in 2:13.
Second beat They went away well to
gether at second attempt. At quarter post
which was made iu Si 1-2 seconds, John
ston was an open length in front. Their
relative positions were not changed to the
half, maJc in 1:05 1-2. At tbe end or four
furlongs Johnston responded to the call or
bis driver and quickly opened a gap or
nan a uozen lengths, ami coming ou, won
In a jog by twenty leugths. Time 2:11 3-4.
Third beat Tbey were given the send off
at the first trial. Johnston shot half a
length iu the lead and he Increased it stead
ily, going to the quarter post in 34 seconds,
to the half mile In 1-0S, aud to the three
quarters in 1:41, and fiiilshel In 2:131, near
ly distancing Richball.
Following this event was an exhibition
