THE CITY OF KINGMAN
Editor of the Paily Eaglt:
Kikomax, Oct 3, 1881.
The shirctovm of Kingman is booming as
only a western town can. Every train ar
riving deposits loads of home-seekers, who,
tired of the dull routine ot hum-drum east
ern life, have shaken off their lethargy and
came west where land is cheap, business
good and houses easily obtainable. As a
result, business assumes a metropolitan cast,
manufacturing interests are being developed
and the country is being settled up rapidly
by a class of people as intelligent and res
pectable as can be found in any of the mid
dle or eastern states. Graded and high
schools dot the city and the contract lias
been awarded the past week for the
erection of a new public school
building to cost nearly fifteen thousand
dollars. Our city has already three flour
ishing banks, while buildings for others arc
in progress of erection. A half a dozen ho
tels already running cannot supply the cus
tom, and new and commodious ones are be
ing built. Every branch of business is rep
resented, and Kingman City, as the capitol
of Kingman county, and the terminous of
the 'Wichita & Western It ,15., is sure to be
come a city of note in the future.
Political mattcr-H here are at present live
ly, but in a deplorably mixed condition.
Tho ICepublican convention, to nominate
county officers, was held here on Monday,
Sept. 21, and be it said to the discredit of
certain would-be leadrs in that party, that
they do not regard party fealty as
the bais of Republican victory,
but rather prefer to proceed on
the "rule or ruin plan." These parties, by
dint of hard work and a liberal wielding of
the "money power," succeeded in organiz
ing and incipient bolt, and that bolt has
been taken in its incipicucy by the doctrine
of true Republicanism, and aroall pleased
to learn that the remedy being appl'ed is
likely not only to affect a cure, but to learn
the perpetrators that "one man power" will
not work in a free and Republican county.
The bolt, which was a mere handful of the
delegates representing the county at the
convention, was at first taken up by the
Courier, a paper claiming to represent the
Republican element of the county, but it
soon became so manifestly unpopular that
it is thought that the will be healed over and
the bolting ticket withdrawn from the lie Id.
All true Republicans unite in devoutly
wii-hing for such a culmination. The friends
of Hon. V. K. (Jillctt, the present popular
representative, and who is the regular nom
inee for re-election, asserts that he has a
reasonably sure thing of beating the Demo
cratic nominee and the bolters' ticket com-
bineil, and Republicans, one and all, should
see that he ebcN it. A bolt is always an ef
fort, direct and undeniable, to aid in a vic
tory for tho enemy, and true party men can
not set down too heavily on such a move
ment, Mr. Gillett and the entire ticket of
the regular convention, are men who are
tried and true Republicans, and they occupy
a place in the hearts of the voters of this
county that w ill assuredly giv e them the v ic
ton. The popular feeling was so strong
against tho Courier, alter the appearance of
its lat issue, that subscription were freely
discontinued and the starting of a new Re
publican paper talked of, and it would be
prophetic to say that such a paper will be
started here should the Courier persist in
supporting th bolting ticket and misrepre
senting the real facts in the prest disagree
able fight. Onsj.UN kh.
A FEW THINGS I CANNOT FOR
GET. 7o iht Editor of the Eagle:
While 1 have no desire for revenge, and
am willing to forgive, there are a few things
that I cannot forget
1. I cannot forget that the lute rebellion
to destroy this government and carried on
2. That all the sy mpathizcrs with tho late
efforts to destroy our government were Dem
ocrats. 3. Tliat every person who encouraged
soldiers to desert from the Union army dur
ing the late war, was a Democrat
J. That while the Democratic party south
was actively engaged in carrying on and
conducting the war to destroy this Union,
the Democratic party north as apolitical or
ganization, was giving them all the aid and
encouragement they could without incuring
danger and personal losses to its member!.
. That the thousands of lives destroyed
and billions of debts incurred and money
expended during the late war was ran sod by
C. That but for tho firm, patriotic stand
taken and maintained throughout the war,
by the Republican party, our government
would have been divided and destroyed, and
African slavery perpetuated.
7. That the present leaders of the Demo
cratic party south, were the leader in the
lute rebellion, and that tho present leaders
of the Democratic party north, were tho
leading copperheads and rebel sympathizers
during tho rebellion.
8. That should Cleveland be elected. 153
of tl.e 201 electoral votes required, must
come from states that either rebelled or tried
to rebel against these United States.
For the foivgoing and other reasons that
1 might give, I am unwilling to trust the
management and control of this government
in the hands of the Democratic party.

was loudly cheered at th depot but Newark
is 'a democratic town And the demonstra
tions along the street as be was driven to the
court house were not as loud as other places.
Li the court house several thousand
were assembled. Chas. II. Kibbler in
troduced the distinguished guest as
"James G. Blaine, late of Maine, but now, of
the united States of merica." This intro
duction elicited round" of applause. Mr.
Blaine said: "While! aecept your kindly
compliments to myself, I am grateful for it
I desire to say thai the mere personality of
a candidate for the ftesidency is of small
account but what hlltands for is of very
great account, earher eJood or evil. The
question before the-people of the United
States is whether they wish to overthrow
the financial and industrial policy that has
been established M aha Bepublican party,
and as for mvself I an onlv one of imDort-
rncc because I represent thoo who answer
as you do. I stand lathe midst of a rich
community, one 'with which I am
familiar, one that I have known
from my earliest childhood. I know
your great growth in wealth, I know the
great progress ia every moral and material
interest, aad I call ya to witness every can
did mian in this aesaanblage, whether he be
Republican, or Democrat, &d perhaps there
are soroe Pcmcwamdooonig' the botaela&
listen. Yes, yes. I call every one to w
nets that your progress in the last twenty
yeiars during the extension and enforcement
of the industrial and financial system of the
Republican parry in which a protective tariff
ana a sound currency are tne great and lead
ing features. I call you all to witness that
y our progress has been greater, double over,
than y our progress in the sixty proceeding
years. Your vote will decide tne contest on
the 14th of October, this current month.
That you will meet your duty I have con
fidence, and that you will discharge it like
Mr. Blaine thanked the people for the
kind reception and made a brief reference
to the industrial interests of Ohio and of the
country at large, and presented the tariff as
the chief issue in the campaign. He was
followed by Hon. A. W. Tenney in a short
speech. Mr. Bagley, on behalf of the ladies
of Zanesville then presented a beautiful
ship of state made of flowers, for which Mr.
Blame returned thanks.
At Cambridgs Blaine was driven to tbo
fair grounds vvnere there was a large meet
ing. He was received with great cheering.
He returned thanks for the compliment and
again briefly called attention to the tariff
question as at Zanesville.
There was a very large and enthusiastic
tratherine at Barnesville. and here acrain
Blaine spoke briefly of the importance of
me tana as an issue in ine campaign.
At two or three other points the train
stopped between there and Bellairc
the people gathered around and cheered
Mr. Blaine, who spoke a few pleasant wefrd
of acknowldgmcnt at each place. It was
dark when the train reached Bellairc. The
little town seemed to be absolutely full and
almost every building along tho principal
streets was illuminated with Chinese lan
terns. The streets were well nigh impass
able. The local committee found great
trouble in getting Blaine through the
crowd into the hotel and several members
ofhis partywho were just behind him were
more than one-half hour trying to make
their way in. The people crowded the
office anel hallway of the hotel so that the
guests could not pass up or down to or
from their rooms. The landlord and local
authorities appealed to the ""crowd to
clear a passageways, at least, but
They declined until Blafno should come out
of lii room and show himself and say a few
words to them. The landlord having de
livered this message, Mr. Blaine appcard at
the head of the stairs and bowed repeatedly.
The people cheered and made a general msh
to shake liands with him, but he held his
hands too high to be reached from below,
and going through the motion of shaking
bands, saying pleasantly: I thank you,
gentlemen", and I beg you to consider that I
am shaking hands with each and everyone
of you, as I should take great pleasure in
going so if mv hands were not so tired."
The crowd tool; him at his word and gave
three cheers for Blaine, and after that the
passageway s were not obstructed. About 8
o'clock he was escorted to the stand from
which he was to ivview the procession.
Bellaire, O Oct 4. The comparative
tameness of Newark" was offset many times
over by tho Zanesville people, who seemed
wild with enthusiasm. At the depot the
jam was so great that there was difficulty in
gccing to tne carnages, and everyooay ap
peared to be cheering and shouting. Tne
carriage provided for Blaine was drawn by
fourteen grey horses. Tliere was a large
escort of mounted Plumed Knight club in
uniform but the escort of men, women and
children that accompanied the procession
through the streets was far larger and more
impressive. Around the stand there were
probably ten thousand people, so denfeiv
packed .that the local committeemen, sdH
police seemed helpless, and two or three of
th speakers who were in the company had
to give vip the attempt to get to the stand.
