Globe-Democrat: When the Ind

When the case was called iu court it
fchrank from the issue by a plea of

A Fulfilled Prophecy.
At the Ilismarck Old Settlers' meet
ing on Wednesday, Col. John A. Mar
tin was introduced by Gov. Hobintou
aud spoke as follows:
"On the 26th of September, 18C0,
one of the greatest aud most honoicd
of Americans, spc.iking of Lawrence,
in reply to an address by L. W. Rob
inson, said: 'Henceforth!! my confi

founded in the allcctions of the Amer

the capital invested in thc-e i.iiltoads

real property of the state at the date
of Mr. Seward's visit. We polled
.r),513 vote tint year; wo will poll
nearly, if not piitc", 2.10,000 this year.
All the live stock iu the state at the
date of its admission numbered less
than 230,000 h-ad; this voar wo can
count up neaily 1,000,000 farm ani

Iniits than the whole territory at the
dateof its admission.
"Willi confident faith' t.ie old set
tlers of Kansas laid Ihe foundation ol

srrowth has more than justified their
pp. most sanguine hope. The develop
i I tnonl irf the stste has been no less
wonderful than its eventful history,
and both have excited the interest anil
admiration of the civilized world.
'I am,' said' Mr Seward, in 1880,
'prepared to decline and do de
clare you people of Kansas the most
intelligent, the bravest, the most virtu
ous people in ihe United States."
Whether tins tribute was or was not
deserved, it is certain that no state iu
the uuion could then or can now claim
a braver, a mora intelligent or a more
enterprising nntl more liberty loving
or law respecting population. Nor
can any f late point to a more roman
tic history or boast of more splendid
achievements than lhcso who have
made Kansas what she is to-day.

The Law of Compensation, ,
To the Dally Eagle. x
Whatever may be said about chance
and fortune, and about it being better
to be born lucky than rich, we ouglit
to understand tnai mere is no cuaucu
even iu tho casting of a die no luck
aud never was. Men reap what they
sow, get what thev earn, possess what
they purchase, that and not another
thing. That I'rovideucc declares "the
measure ye mete unto others, shall be
measured unto ye again." All wise
eyes see this. Men aud things are even
ly balanced licre.- It may 6cem that
many kind actions and loving wishes
go unrewarded, and that many a vi
cious life flaunts it out triumphant to
the cud. But litis is only seeming.
No act can go unrewarded here be
cause every act carries ils reward in
itself. No evil life is victorious; it
oulyprcleuds lo be so. The brag is
on its lips, the pain is in its heart.
This wc call retribution, or the law of
compensation, and the workings of
this inevitable law may be seen in all
tilings. Years ago a prominent poli
tician wronged a poor shop girl,to-day
his siu has found him out, aud will de
prive him of the highest gift which the
American peoplo can bestow.
Trees which grow rapidly aud at
tain to fiuc hcighths,ncvcr live so long
as the slowly growing kind. The Nor
way pines are tlowly taking root for
years before reaching any great sie
and then the storms of centuries swesp
over them and leave them undisturb
ed and enduring. The locust will bo
for years a tall aud stately tree, while
the oak is yet a dwaif, but when one
hiindecd years have passed away the
oak will carry a broad green crown,
above its aged and withered neighbor.
The birds of the tropics arc dazzling
brilliant in their coloring, the lines of
the rainbow, and the tints of the sun
set give splendor to their plumage,
but they have no voice, singing is un
known lo them. The tulips, holly
hocks and peony roes arc tho most
showy and gorgeous of flowers, but
they arc scentless. If the dog will he
swift-footed like tho grey hounJ, he
must give up being strong like the
mastiff. As mechanics what we gain in
power, wc lose iu time. Civilization
must pay its price according to this
law. We cross the ocean iu swiftly
speeding steamships, but the sailors
who held the ship for Lawrence, won
the battle for Nelson, and made our
naval engagements With Great Britain
one scries of brilliant victories lmve
gone, they have descended from the
yard arm and gone to shoveling coal
in the. bunkers. AVe travel by mil, but
wc have lost acquaintance with die
country through which we are
hilled. We invent revolvers, re
pealing lilies aud mitatraloiincs, but
wc have :i Uichard, the Lion-hearted
impossible. Uichard now sits si miles
behind the Initio field and teleiaphs
the nameless one to do the lighting.
Personal prowess has been exchanged
for Minnie lilies and Winchester re
pealers. W eenvy Hie man ol genus
ah, he has such a start of us; we my,
wc are mistaken. Every advantage
has its drawback. If mentis ha, the
light it must hrar witness to thai.
When God makes a genius, as he rare
ly docs le "ays olt e,cl' il work for
him as would terrify us He puts such
a burden on him as would break com
mon hearts. If ou aic n gieat man
you must do great things
Tlic world expects it. If vou have
made a reputation take caie of it.
Men of prosperity pay for fheir fame.
Their word weighed, their lives
watched, their faults magnified, a
fierce liuht beating upon them that
blackens each speck into a blot, sU
mucll expected of them and so little
allowance made for the weakness of
human nature. If any soul be gifted
wit lithe sensibility of genius, (here
then goes with this always a greatly
increased capacity for gaiu. The liner
the nerve I he quicker aud deeper it
feels and what would not rend nor
abrade our flesh, wounds aud tears the
body of (In. great soul!
In all our lives is the swing of the
great pcutilum. It is a mistake to
suppose that because the criminal
goes uiiwhippcd of ono justice, there
lore lie has escaped punishment; that
that because our police fail to arrest
him therefore there is no arrest. Why
the criminal carries the real detective
within aud can by no means escape
that one. Evil deeds like curses come
homo lo roost. When you injiiic
your neighbor, then the compensation
steps in aud says you must fear your
neighbor; that's the price.

sound proof that Cleveland would not

Irish Americans" are just now in
about the same position that the In
dians were when our soldiers fired off
a mountain howitzer strapped on the
back of a mule. "
They were closely pressed by the In
dians, and did not wait to take the
gun olT the mule. The concussion
knocked the mule down, and mule aud
guu rolled down the mountain side.
The Indians lied in consternation.
The big chief, afterwards questioned
as to tho flight of his men, replied
that they could stand the white man's
big guu or little guu, but vvhcu il

could not control them.

I can best do it by citjig you to this
quotation: "Scorn w'l not wilhcr but

Kemcmber, now,Ido not charge
you with philautlTopic motives in
treating me with sicli a firm, uufialter
ing absence of treatment. I hardly
think j on licglcttcd my philosoplical
digests for the impose of developing
me. I rather lelieve v on did as you
did partly because you wished to do
as yon wis-led lo do, and partly be
cause you would rather not do as vou
would rather not do.
lie tlt.it as it may, I am under a
thousasJ obligations to you, for you
were .'he first editor among live hun
dredwho overprinted a word from my
trciichcnt pen. Wh! the Scientific
American has stood me off for years!
Even the North American Itevicw has
repeatedly mid steadfastly laid my
labored essays on the shelf, amoug
which I call to mind a few titles as:
'The good idea," ' Women iu tights,"
"Treatment of chicken choleru,"
"Docs death end all?" etc., etc.
So of course I have becoino used to
this business, and when I send out
something for publication aud it don't
turn tip it makes me glad. I begin to
chink tint there was a hidden mean
ing in it that the poor editor couldn't
sec Aud while I am laughing at his
folly, he is nervously aud with bated
bicatli burn ing through a lot of ex
changes to see if any of them had tak
en notice of a pet "leader," which per
haps hadn't been read at all; at least
not half so much as his nose. You see
how resigned I am. I have some one
to lean on. you know, sonic one who
makes a decent living for a dependent
husband and child. That one is my
bosom spouse. Long m.iv su wave!
