M. M. MUROOCK, Editor.
SUNDAY MORNING, AUG. 31, 1884.
Fifty prominent Republicans of Sedgwick
county, at least, bare intimated to us within
tbe week that bad they been editor of the
Eaole they would not only not have ex
pressed any regret over the apostacy of
Edgar A. Doitey, but flayed bim alitc.
While political perfidy and faithlessness are
excccdinglyaggravating to men who never
dream of wiivcring, yet there may be ex
tenuating circumstances, surroundings and
pressure? that younger men may find diffi
cult to withstand. "We felt that hia over
whelming defeat in Xo ember, which we
wiw at once was bound to follow, would ba
punUhmcnt tnouglu In fact wo don't be
lieve that Ed. Dorsey fully unden-tood or
comprehended just how ungenerously he,
in that act, was treating the men who had
so long ftood by him, and which even the
nteragemossback Democrat could not, and
has not figured out. In that spirit, and from
that standpoint we wrote, wrote as wo would
have written of any ono whom wc had
trusted and honored, but who had betrayed
u., wrote as we would lane of a brother
who bad made a grcuous mistake.
It i not a little instructive to hear tha
average Sedgwick county Democrat discuss
the personel of the ticket fixed up this jcar
by their bosses. A goodly number of the
rank nnd file sem unable to determine the
status of the party and arc perplexed in
making the Democratic party and its Repub
lican candidates hitch exactly. Speaking
of Ed. Dorsey us a Democratic nominee
an intelligent Democrat exprcvd it in this
way: "If Cleveland and Hendricks arc not
good enough for Dorsey, then Dorsey i not
good enough for me, and I for one shall not
vote for him."
So far as wc ha c been able to learn there
is not, in Sedgewick county, a single ex
soldier Republican who will vote for the
gallant Cob John Martin, that will also vote
for Ed. Dorsey. Jolly Bill Hajs who re
grets probably, as mnch as an j body Dor
sey' strange and unaccountable course,
says he don't know of as many as three lib
eral Republicans even, who will vote for
Dorsey. Dan Boone, that out and out
square up and down Republican from the
north end says it looks like Dorsey had lost
all the friend? be ever liad.
TiK"VicniTA Eaole, Topeka Common
wealth and Leavenworth Times are publish
ing articles favoring resubmission. These
papers have all the time opposed prohibi
tion and have done all in their power to
nulify the law. "Wo hac no respect for
their expressions on this subject. What is
the use of talking about this question in this
whining way. Evcryono knows that when
ever there is a majority in favor of resubmis
sion the question will be submitted to the
Ioople. Only a short time ago eight thous
und majority favored prohibition and wc
believed a much larger majority favors it
to-day. In free Kansas the people generally
rule. About the only exception to this rule
is the saloon clement" frequently rule when
greatly in tiic minority. Whenever the
loople of Kansas want the question resub
mitted it will be done, and until then it
should not bo done. Harper Times.
Well, now, is it then so much harder to be
fair than unfair?
Worse than a Mistake.
Col. C. K. Holiday has not jet made up
-miw"! to accept a place on the ticket with
Glick, and it is veil. He had better never
make up his mind to do so. In the first
place, there is not a ghost of a chance of the
ticket ever being olected, nnd in the second
place, the Union Pacific and Santa Fe rail
roads cannot aflbrd to have a prominent
railroad owner and director placed in a po
sition w litre he would be called upon to
name the railroad committee of the state
senate, and also where ho would have a lead
ing voice in tho assessment of railroads.
The nomination of Holiday was the weakest
political movo ever made in the state, if it
wasn't something worso than a mistake.
Edgar A. Dorsey 's Democracy.
The Democrats nominated K. A. Dorsey
at Wichita. Tuesdav-. for State Senator.
Donor has been holdlnc office by tho aid of
the Republican v otes for the past eight j cars.
Yes, but he will hold no moro offices by
tbe aid of the .Republican votes. Even if ho
had heretofore been a Republican only for
tho sake of office, which now seems probable,
ordinary decency and that sense of gratitude
which animates even the heart of a tramp
for a free dinner, should have deterred him
from turning and trampling upon what his
former friends hold dear from turning and
smiting the hands which had so often been
unselfishly ouUtretched to help him. The
political history of all Kans.is does not furn
ish a parallel to Dorsey's ingratitude. Even
St. John and W. I. Campbell were let down
and out before they joined the enemy.
It is time n slander was started against
St. John. Tho opportunity should bo im
proved, as the campaign is rapidly slipping
awav. Let no guilty candidate cscopc.
It is entirely unnecessary to slander St
John, the truth about him is bad enough.
On nnd after September first wil? appear
the Wichita Daily licacon. It will blossom
as a full-fledged Democratic sheet, and will
light the way for Cleveland, Hendricks and
Glick. Tho Commonwealth hopes that
their efforts will be crowned with success.
Among the brilliant things in a pam
phlet published by tho Free Trade club of
London, the following is reported: "Let it
bo understood once for all that tho salvation
of England depends upon the destruction of
American manufactures, and that the only
way in which American manufactures can
be destroyed is by free trade."
After their managers had so successfully
captured Ed. Dorsey, wc are sorry that the
rank and ln should show so much feeling.
If tho Democrats can't make up their minds
to swallow Dorsey after ho had consented to
swallow them the caso is bad enough, for wo
don't know- of a square out Republican in
tho county who would now touch Dorsey
with a ten foot pole.
The political writings of tho Wichita Eagle
man arc "a perpetual riv er of paradise" and
wo are not surprised that his articles arc so
often quoted. Like his big corn stories,
they furnish a basis for speculation that set
one1 head to aching before the first ten lines
ore read. El Dorado Republican.
Yes, and they set hearts to aching as well.
It is the pith, the points, tho brains, my
boy, that's in 'cm.

who have dogged him, or tluin the men who

twenty-fit o years.
Gov. Hendricks letter, published in tho
dispatches yesterday, is brief, but it tells
something. It admits that there lias been
talk in tho Democratic circles of withdraw
ing Cleveland; it admits that Gov. Hen
dricks himself is indifferent about private
character, and also conveys tho mclancholly
intelligence that Gov. Hendricks is suffering

Personal Liberty against Public Lib
erty. BY TARDEE BUTLER.
This clamor for personal liberty, if it
should succeed, would be the crave of pub
lic liberty. The watch-word of the Amer
ican people for one hundred j oars has been
public liberty. A certain class of citizens.
whose business is so odious that thevhave
to do their work behind a screen, and who
arc so unpopular that no respectable gen
tleman would be seen walking with tnem
arm in arm on Commercial street, have
made the cry for personal liberty their
watch-word. Mr. Glick, who is in a position
to be thankful for small favors, has adopted
this as tho battle cry of his campaign.
Personal libcrtjf Every harlot in Atchi
son is zealous for personal liberty to carry
on her trade on Commercial street, with no
interfearaucc by the public authorities. So
is every gambler; so are the men that sell
lottery tickets, bawdy pictures, and licen
Society pays small respect to this de
mand. "A man found drunk on the streets
is locked in the calaboose. A few nights
ago the writer was waiting for u train in tho
union depot; and a fellow drunk and noisy
undertook to walk into the ladies' waiting
room; and a policeman took him by the
collar and squelched his personal liberty in
short order. A man is denied tho personal
liberty to walk .the streets in tho city of
Atchison naked, to dress in women's cloth
ing, or to build a fraino house within the
fire limits of tho city. Restraint of personal
liberty is one of the primo necessities of
civ ilized society. A savage in paint and
feathers, and sliouting, "Whoop, I big In
dian," or skulking, hatchet in hand, ready
to spring liko a tiger on his enemy, is a per
fect type and pattern of personal liberty.
It nA depends, however, on whose ox is
gored. Lawjers, doctors, grocers, mer
chants, mechanics, draymen and day labor
ers, that indicate a purposo to vote for John
A. Martin, are forthwith boycotted, and are
savagely told by these patrons of personal
liberty: ' You vote that way and vou get
no moro business from us." " Thcro is, how
ever, one kind of personal liberty that is
not to be allowed to exist on this American
continent Fathers aro not to be allowed
the personal liberty to protect their own
boys from tho temptations of tho dram
shops. This thing is to be like a jug-handle,
all on ono side.
Wo have said this is a conspiracy ngaint
public liberty. Fifty-five millions of jeople
here in America aro the sovereign and gov
erning power, and being this have become
the most honored and prosperous nation on
the face of this green earth. But among
these millions the old adage would be rea
lised, "Many men of many minds," and
this would issue in hopeless confusion were
it not for the potency of ono principle. It
is mentally agreed that a measure barinjr a
majority of votes, or tho largest number of
votes, should bo counted carried; and that a
man having a majority, or tho largest num
ber of votes, shall be counted elected.
When the people cease to adhere to this
principle our government ceases to exist
Wc assert then that Mr. Glick and his rab
ble following of perj'.rcrs and law breakers
aro engaged m a conspiracy that is sheer
blank and unadulterated treason and rebell
ion. But it is in harmony with the eternal
fitness of things that Geo". W. Glick should
be the leader of this treasonable conspiracy
atniinst the most vital principles of
our American government; for, he was
in heart n traitor in the late war;
only he did not have the courage
and manliness to stand up and be shot at,
but left that sort of thing to somebody else,
and skulked away. Then, when returning
peace brought renewed prosperity, Atchi
son saw Monsieur Tonson come again, and
after the old fashion he began to peer
around for a chance to turn an honest pen
ny. This man and his follow in? aroencair-
ed in a treasonable conspiracy because that
a law was enacted by almost a four-fifths
majority of tho legislature, and was duly
signed or tho governor. Bv tho decision of
all the courts in America, the right to enact
this law wiongcd to mo legislature, w neincr
tho prohibitory amendment was a part of
the constitution Or not Mr. Glick and his
fellow.traitors sav : " o will not obey this
law." Indeed, if 3Ir. Glick liad not been an
ingrained traitor, he would not have been
governor at all. Judge John A.
Martin had too much manhood and
loyalty to stand on a platform
of" treason and rebellion; and it was because
Geo. W. Glick was without manhood,
without loyalty and without conscience,
that ho was" placed in a position to reap the
harvest that came from the people's revolt
against John P. St John.
Ana now wim me eximpieoi mcnnai
collapse of the slaveholders' rebellion before
their very cyc, is there any party in Atchi
son county that will follow this mnn in this
nuid enterprise to overthrow the govern
ment? ilcfferson Davis. Georfre v. Glick, and
Lot's wife, transformed into a pillar of salt,
are predetined to be three everlasting mon
uments of the folly of rebellion against a
just law. Champion.
Having sold Tho Press to Hon. Jacob
Stotler, I bid all readers and friends of the
paper "Farewell," as its editor. I gladly
retire from a proleSon which I entered
from necessity rather than choice and, con
sequently have never enjoyed.
Sinco August 1G, 1881, I have discharged
the public duties devolving upon mc as edi
tor of The Press in a manner satisfactory, on
the whole, to mvsclf. Financially, I have
succeeded in satisfying myself, also.
I shall always" remember with great
pleasure the many words of kindness and
encouragement that have been spoken to mc
and for me by a host of friends. I also ap
preciate very highly the material support,
in the way of business. The Pres has re

Weixisotos, Augustus, 1884.
It is stated that Alexander Sullivan, pres
ident of tho Irish National Leaguo of Amer
ce, who was re-elected, unanimously, at the
late convention held at Boston, but declined,
was impelled to decline because he intends
to take the stump for Blaine and Logan, and
he did not think that it would be proper for
him to take so active a part in politics while
sen. inn as president of the leajrue. The
New York Star, John Kelly's paper, in
speaking of tlic retirement of Mr. Sullivan
"Hi literary attainments lent power to tho
league; his executive capacity kept it within
the boundaries ot a sate prudence, and me
confidence reposed in him was
the measure o his uscfullnes.
He could not but have recognized all these
things himself, though his modesty is as
manifest as his ability is undisputed, and
while necessarily, whatever he may say to
the contrary, knowing what a wrench it
would bo to'thc machinery of the League to
surrender its guidance, yet the very devotion
to Ireland that would nave caused him to
clinc to tho helm to the last was the im
pelling motive to drive him from the post
His political predilections are with the Re
publican party now, whatever they mav
liavo been in the past; his candidate prefer
ences are in that direction at present, how
ever tney might have heen under uinereni
circumstances: and impelled bv the obliga
tion to discharge his political duties as an
American citizen he could not in his capacity
as an Irish patriot imperil a great move
ment by a compromise in opposition to the
constitution of the League. This was thor
oughly understond in tho inner circles at
the convention, and it was not necessary to
nroclaim it aloud, but it was there not
withstanding. Mr. Sullivan's rejection of
the high honor of the Presidency was in
fluenced bv the hiirher honor of consistency;
and if to-dtiv he his not directing the affairs
of the Irish in America, it is because he
would not mix up these affairs, even impli
edly, with the nronacandism of American
politics. There is, as we have suggested, a
deep significance in all this tendency and
probable goal of tho Irish citizen vote. It
is a new straw on tbe stream, indicating the
direction and force ot an important current.

There are very few
oftae'maay who car
ry watches who ever
thiak of their deli
cate raechaalsm, or
of the extraordinary
and unceasing labor
they perform. There
are many who think
that a watch ought
to run and keep good
time for years with
out a particle, of oil,
who would net think
of running a com
mon piece of ma
chinery a day with
outoiling the wheels,
which do but a frac
