THE WICHITA DAILY EAGLE: WICHITA, KANSAS., WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER, 12, 1884v
M. M. MURDOCK, Editor.
WEDNESDAY MOUSING, NOV. 12.
Tho old Keystone state rolled up Blaine
seventy-eight thousand pluralty.
Tho Beacon is down to iu old tune of
" liar." Tlmt sheet can't got ahovs
epithets either in argument or reply.
editor of the Eaoli: did not open or see a
singlu isuc of tho Beacon for last week. We
did not sec what it had to say about our an
nouncement with reference to the diipatches.
O&car Smith nor any onecle,then norsmce,
said one word about our misrepresenting the
facts, in our hearing. We said that the pre
tended private dii-putch bulletined by the
ISeacon v.as no doubt bogus. We still
belie e it mis. Wo said in answ er to an an
nouncement that the Beacon was going to
read tho dispatches that night from their
awning that it would do no such thing for
the simple nason that they were a franchit-e
worth $5,000 not $000 and that the Eagle
tw ned them csclui ely, and that the Beacon
could only rani Mich bulletins ns might be
cnt in. It was ju't dusk and the Beacon
had lighted up. We repeat the same thing
now and hate tlio documents to proe all we
kuid. If the Beacon should wear out all
iti preskCi in calling us "liar" it would not
nllect the truth of that assertion. That out
fit mui-t liatc taken the people for fool. Wc
heard docus of people say that tho Beacon
d.d not read the dispatcher in full, and an
ct idcneu of the fact is the great crowd tUy ed
on this side of the street, knowing that we
read cry word that raine and just as it
camo. In conchi'ion, we hao nothing to
rjawl out of and nothing to apologiso for.
The Beacon get only tho noon report, and
that is all it dow git and all it can gt. The
Eaole gets all that the lk-acon does and three
times as much beide. A thousand men
heard what we taidand a thonsand men are
jut as well MititfiedaswearethattheBtaeon
rend only such bulletins nnd dispatches a
suited its side, and a thousand men are just
as well satisfied as we are that the "solid
south" bulletin neier came over the wires.
The whole matUr in a nutshell is wo treated
the people fairly, and the Beacon did not,
in its chagrin it concocted a cock and bull
story only to deny it.
JOHN P. ST. JOHN.
Biille Blaise, Kas. Nov. 11
To tin- Kditor of I'lie K-igle.
Immediately after tho news reached herethat
New York was doubtful, if not lost to Blaine,
(when it so rightfully belonged to the Be
publicans) a large crowd witnessed tho
burning of the l!igj of St. John with evi
dent dchget. Since that tune tho Demorats
have sought to cause a wrong imprewon of
the motives of that crowd to prevail. But
few of our people are oppo-ed to prohibi
tion or to St. John being a candidate of the
prohibition party of tho United State-, but
they (the Uepublicaiw) are opposed to the
pint he mamfttUdin conducting his can
vass. All his actions seemed to say, "rc
engo i bWftt;" "I will show the Bepublican
part that it must listen to me when I ask a
prohibition, jilank in its national platform,
If there wa no studied tllort on the part
of tiox.M. John to simply defeat the Be
publican partv, why did he spend his time
and exert hi- Bepublican influence on the
Bcpiibliciins of New York and Indiana
the two doubtful states? Why did he not
lecture hi sinful neighbors of Missouri,
against the evils of intcmpirance? Kwi-tmkj.'lVnne-see,
Texas and many other
states were in need of temperance speeches
as much as New York and Indiana. When
Ohio Bepublicaiis could not bo turned
agaiust Bl.uue, (o. St. John, spent but lit
limc in that state. Had the nominee of the
Prohibition pirtt come out of the canvass
with clean hands and free from the well
grounded charge of attempting and proba
bly succeeding to defeat tho Bepublican
party, no elligy of St. John would bo burn
d in Kansas.
It is generalh conceded, I believe, that if
constitutional prohibition, state or national,
is e er n ached, it must come through the
Bepublican party, nndthe defeat ot that par
ty puts off the advent of that much to he de
sired p riod.
J v cry much doubt is a one idea p irty, be
that idci e T so commendable and right
eous, can gain control of this mighty nation.
Had the abolitionists not staid with the Be
publican party m the past, is it reasonable
to suppose that they would have succeeded
so soon nnd so well in they did. Begging
pardon for length of this nrticle,
I remain respectfully,
A BLUE OLD TIME.
"Washington, Nov. a, 1SS4.
To tlio Killtorof tho Haste
Now that the election is over all 03 es will
be turned to Washington, where the results
of the election will be played out. In less
than one month congress will convene; in
less than four months the new president will
be inaugurated, and if, as now seems proba
ble, tho new president shall be Cleveland,
the occasion and crisis will bo only les
memorable than was the inauguration of
Lincoln twenty-fit e years ago. Tho local
revolution as faras Washington is concerned,
will be greater than then, for the capital
tw enty-fiv o j ears ago w as 11 straggling v ilUge,
it is now 11 wealthy city. Then the official
and clerical services of the government were
insignificant, now they are twice ns large
nnd thrice as expcn-ive as tho civil service
of any other country.
The calamity of Cleveland's election has
been dreaded ever since the evening of the
fourth of November, but the fact wat not
generally believed until tho morning of the
seventh, when tho-e who had hoped again-t
hopo Jolt them-elves compelled to accept
the unwelcome truth.
This is indeed a dark dsy for the country,
and it is midnight for Washington. The
thousands of government clerks, skilled,
faithful, and tried men, many of them
union soldiers, realize that they must vield
their place to hordes from the solid south.
It is bani-hment from the eapitolthey fought
to save. To many it means ruin, and per
haps starvation for themselves and families;
for they have grown old in the service, too
old to commence life anew. The glooni is
profound and wide spread; it can be read in
tho lace- of every mail, woman nnd child
here. There is, of course, abundant talk
about the protection of civil service rules,
but it is noticeable that Republican have
no faith in them, and that the Democrats do
net chum that thov will bo carried out.
Tl eir favorate metaphor, inspcaking of the
civ il service establishment, is the Augean
stable, and thev claim that they will clean it
not with the tooth-brush mentioned by sen
ator elect Payne, but with pitch forks and
wire brooms. Well, they will find the es
tablishment empty, swept and garnished,
but they w ill no sooner enter therein, than
the condition of that house will bo seven
times worse than it was before.
An era of business depression may now
be expected to prevail 111 this city, and good
times will not probably return until the
Bepublican party again comes into power.
Indeed the business depression is already
apparent in the stores here. Thoe in gov
ernment employ have already begun to
economize and to save money against the
day of wrath. And merchants find them
selves with crowded 'helves but without
Tlio hotels and boarding houses, however,
will be. crowded a full a ever. The great,
unwashed, hungry Democratic contingent
has already begun to make jts appearance
in Washington, and, before the congres
sional session is over, the city will warm
with iuch a crowd as it has never known
before. I well remember the army of bum
mers that thronged the hotels, one
year ago, when the prize was the
pittance that the Democratic house was
able to dispense. Imagine that crowd multi
plied by ten thousad clamoring for offices of
trust and responsibility, and they will get
the offices. Cleveland, no matter how good
his individual intentions and resolve may
be, will bo paralyzed and powerless in this
environment. These men have made him
president, and they will make his presidency.
But perhaps lam premature in my gloomy
augeries, for at this moment, I hear that the
national Republican committee havo re
claimed New York on later returns than
were before them when they telegraped Mr.
Hlnine. roneedinc the stale to Cleveland. It
is evident that the official returns can alone
decide the question, and while it is folly to
be elated with delusive hope, it is natural to
put off as long as possible the day of doom.
REPORT OF THE STATE BOARD
At the called meeting of the State Board
of Agriculture in June last, it was ordered
that tho Secretary enlarge the monthly re
port for September, by the addition of items
of general information concerning Kansas,
and that the bulk of the edition be placed
at the disposal of the Commissioner for
Kansas to the World' Cotton and Indus
trial exposition to be held in New Orleans.
The report has just been issued, having
been purposely delayed beyond tho usual
time for issuing the September monthly, in
order to bring the information concerning
crops, lands, etc, up to the latest date pos
sible. The report is in pamphlet form, and con
tains seventy-four pages of closely printed
matter relating to various subjects of inter
est to those seeking information concerning
the resources of Kansas.
Tho first thirteen pages are dev oted to a
topographical description of tho Stato its
surface features, drainago system regional
characteristics, valleys, soil and mineral re
sources, such as coal, lead, and zinc, salt,
irrmnm. rlilk. nutter clav. fire clnv, hy-
tji 'i -i
draulic limestone, building stone, bitumen,
gas wells nnd artesian wells. A compara
tive statement of the population of the
State since 18C0, is next given together with
a tablo of counties, showing the number of
inhabitants on March 1, 18S4, the square
miles in each county and the density of pop
ulation to tho square mile of both the total
number and rural population. Following
this a table showing tho population on
March 1, 1884, of the cities of Kansas, hav
ing over 1,000 inhabitants, placed according
to their size.
The total population of the state ns shown
by the first table is 1,135,014; the total pop
ulation to tho square mile is 1.1.97, and of
rural population 10,19.
There are 73 cities in the state that return
a population of over 1,000, while three cities
known to hnve over 1.000 did not return
their population separately from the town
ships in which they lie.
The next 32 pages are given to the subject
of agriculture. Each one of the field crop?
grown in the state are treated seperatily,
and the progress or decline of each for a
period of elev en 3 ears giv en. In ihe princi
pal crops of wheat, rye andoat, extraordi
narv yields in 1884 are noted. Tho larg-t
yield of wheat reported, is that of S. Cornell
of Ellsworth count-, po-totuee Hunker mil.
Bus-ell countv, who tlueshed GOV bushels
per acre, from a field of 10 aens. Frank
Uasalia, of Wilon, Ellsworth county, and
August Heinsen of Denmark, Lincoln coun
ty, each threshed f0 bushels per acre.
'1 lie uumbcrs of the several kinds of live
stock are given, nndthe percent, ofin
prpjisn .if each since 1874: tho value of mii-
mah slaughtered and sold for slaughter, and
thepoune's of eheese nnd butter manufac
tured in 1881 arc also given in this connec
tion. Tables I y counties showing acres nnd
products of the various field crop, num
bers of the different kinds of live stock, sta
tistics of horticulture and miscellane
ous subjects close ma suojeci 01 iy,n
culture. Following agriculture i- an article on the
public school system of Kansas, prepared
by II. C Specr, the State superintendent
of Public Instruction. In this article is
given statistics relating to tho common
schools, and brief mention of the three
educational institutions under the care of
Information relating to manufactures,
churches find valuation, showing tho vari
ous manufacturing interests of the state, tho
asses-ed valuation of each county for 1874,
and the several religious denominations and
tho institutions of learning that they con
trol, follows the article on schools.
The subject of vacant public lands is next
treated, and is divided into four subdivisions
of government; common school, stato insti
tutions of learning and railroad lands. A
synopsis of United States laws nnd rulings
of the general land office is to the disposal
of gov eminent lands is followed by the num
ber of ncres remaining vacant by counties,
in the various land districts. Tho location
of land offices and the names of registers and
rocvMvers is nlso irivcn. The stato laws in
relation to the acquirement of school lands
are condensed in order to answer the man-
inquiries on the subject, the synopis being
followed by a table by counties showing the
number of acres of this class of lands still
unsold, and tho avcrago price per aero at
which they would probably be appraised at
this time. The statement regarding lands
belonging to the state educational institu
tion shows that i. early all of these lands
have been disposed of, tho Agricultural Col
lege still having a few acres in three counties.
The number of acres yet unsold, belong
ing to the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and
the Kansas division of the Union Pacific
railronds is next given by counties, together
with tho term on which they can be pur
chased. Tho meteorological record for September,
compiled by the meteorolegist of tho board,
close the volume.
The secretary will be unable to dUtributo
the usual number of these books within the
Mate, the bulk, as said before, being at the
disposal of the commissioner for Kansas to
the New Orleans Exposition. Commonwealth.
a is desirable for the best results. I have
seen timothy seed come so thick that none of
it grew six inches high; it just choked
one another out. Now, how much seed
must be used to furnish one seed to the
square inch! A little calculation will an
swer this better than I can answer it in any
other wav. By actual count the scruple
weight of timothy seed -contains 3.200
seeds; one ounce, 78,800 seeds; onepound,
1,228,800 seeds; one bushel, b5&&fiw feed.
One acre contains 160 square rods or 43,660
square feet, or 6,272,040 inches- From the
above you see that one bushel of seed to the
acre would bo eight and eight-tenths seeds
to the inch; of course two bushels would
furnish twice as many or 17.G seeds to the
inch. Who want seventeen or eighteen
seeds to one sguare inch! What folly!
What a waste or seed! Thi is, in my opin
ion, profligacy. From the above we see
that one quart of seed has 1,728,000 seeds,
three quart 0,184,000 seeds. So that ZZ
quarts of timothy seed will make just seed
enough for one acre, sowing one seed to the
FERTILIZATION OF CORN.
sels in such profusion as to provide certa
fertilization!" Mr. Hoffman thought
From tbe Klmlra Husbandman.
At a late meeting of the Elmira, N. Y.
Farmers club, the sollowing question was
asked: Will a kernel of corn planted Dy
itself, in a place remote from other corn,
Sroduce perfect cars! And the answer was:
o; at least it i3 not likely to produce per
fect ears, because it cannot have perfect fer
tilization. President McCann queried:
"Would it not bo well to plant in the corn
field occasional hills later than the first
planting, in order to effect greater fertiliza
tion of tars with the later pollen falling
ntinn the silks of ears formed after the pol
len had ceased to drop from the earlier tas-
was not necessary, inasmuch as the pol
len would continue to fall so long as the
neec-itv exi-tcd, and he explained the
methoiT of fertilization as observed
in his long experience. While a single plant
might effect perfect fertilization, the chances
were not favorable, because pollen, light a
it, floats off with the wind laterally, and
w ould be carried away from the ears beneath,
whereas in tho field the pollen from one row
may be carried across many others, and at
last reach the silks upon distant rows. He
was vcrv sure that his corn had been mixed
witli other varieties, when tho mixture had
come through pollen from field many rod
distant, thus showing me tendency io uuirs
bution within the field where a single variety
r.rpv.iileil. nnd the tendenev to mix also when
Himtlipr vnrietv was within such distance
that tho wind might carry the pollen to the
fields awaiting fertilization, as to mo iaci
that the best ears are usuallv the upper one
when two or more are borne by the same
stalk, he regarded it ns in accord with a pro
vision of nature, the best fruit being found
usuallv on the upper limbs of the trees, and
the nest grapes on me nigiicr uraucuca.

I fee in sonic of the papeTS lately a writer
claiming that farmers do not sow enough
grass feed per acre, and favs in sub.-tance
that this fact account for their failure in
raisings good crop of gra. He claims
that two bushels of timothy seed per aero is
not too much, and teat a peck or half a
bushel is not enoughv 2v"ovv, what has led
this writer t such ideas or conclusions I do
not know, but 1 do not hesitate to pronounce
them unsound. When I was a joun" man,
and just beginning fanning for myelf, one
of niv neighbor, an older man than nmelf,
told tne he used a half bushel of timothy
se-ed per acre, and thought that about right.
I sowed this amount lat icar and obefvcd
that niv gras crop was not ns heavy a
T lisil" rrovvn before from less to the
acre. The grass grew too thick to attain a
proper height. In other words, it was too
thick to thrive. The next year 1 sowed only
a peck per acre, and had better results; but
I was satisfied I had sowed too much still to
secure tho best returns. I reduced the
quantity till 1 carco down to two quarts per
acre. I am now satisfied that three to four
quarts per aero is enough it put in so u can
grow. I do not throw it on the ground and
leave it to cover itself, or wait for the rain to
do that. I cover it as I would any other
seed that I wish to grow. Now, farmers, let
vis look at this matter a little, llowraaay
seeds to the square foot would you wish to
have grow so that each stalk may have room
to grow and thrive I Could more than one
sea to the square inch do well ! I think 144
seeds to tho square foot is as heavy seeding
