The Notes of a Day's Trip by a Cor
respondent. A Mirror of the Doings of Derby and
a Sketch of What is Going on
To the Editor or the Eagle:
Often navI hearf it" said Urat1 Deepest
darkncsi cotoes just before tlie dawn," but I
Tiad ncer realized to fully the truth of the
statement as when on ilonday morning I
w as called upon to break away from the em
brace of Morpheus and in the utmost
haste ruth out of the house and down the
dark streets and avenues in the face or a
fierce and biting sleet in order to reach the
depot in time to take the early north-bound
train on the Santn Fe. But whoeier heard
of a train being on time when one has made
an extra effort to reach it! An hour later
the tender steak, fresh eg and fragrant
coffee served up at the new Commercial
hoU-1 in Sedgwick City made tno foripjt my
early troubles and put me in a good humor
with all the world. Breakfast finished, I
hadjut taken a seat in the waiting-room
when the school bell reminded mo of my
own cxix.riencv, and lsallie-d forth again
and in a short time found l'rof. Perry seated
at his desk in the high school room, busily
engaged in laing out his work for tho day.
In tho course of a brief convcr-ation I
learned that the schools of the city, though
somewhat crowded are doing good work.
They hare fit e teachers employ ed and an
enrollment of over COO. I was also in
formed that an organization had been
formed and arrangements made for securing
a course of lectures in the city, the proceeds
to be appropriated to the establishment of a
public library and reading room. As this
scheme was just in my own line of business,
I accountt-d myself ery fortunate to be on
hand at such an opportune time.
At the bank I met an old Uuckeye friend,
J. Y. Almack. AVe stepped across
the street to his new and elegant office
which liei having fitted up in fincstvle,
and the -d of January will open it real estate
and brokers office. He will, however, re
tain his interest as vice president of the
bank. IFc stepped out, and in croing the
street wa? accosted by Mr. Geo. Kanavel,
whom I knew in my earlier jears as a jolly
shoemaker at AVest Carlisle-, Ohio. I was
pleased to learn that ho now owns a fine
f inn near Sedgwick and is president of the
City bank, in which he owns the controlling
interest. He ha-, however, ouito rccentlv
disposed of his share, conditionally, and will
start to California the Od of January, where
he has been offe-red the presidency of a nt w
bank with a capital of $2."0,000. If ho
thinks the outlook favorable he will close
out his bu'ines in Sedgwick and move to
California in the spring.
The Proton Uros. are doing an immense
business in cattle mid hog. They shipped
eight car loads on Monday. They are feed
ing 275 head of cattle on their farm, one-
half mile from town. From V. L. StiflV-e,
another Iluckevo boy, who is superintending
the feeding for the Preston Ilro, I learned
tlit there are nearly 2000 head of cattle and
hogs being fattened on tlie corn raised in
the vicinity of Sedgwick; alo that both in
quantity and quality the Proton Bros, take
All other business interests in and about
Sedgwick seem to be in flourishing con
dition. I saw more than a dozen wagons
unloading at the city elevators. Despite the
snow and sleet the stores and blacksmith
shops are having an excellent trade and
doing a good business.
At 1 o'clock I boarded the north-bound
freight and an hour later arrived In Newton.
The town was full of cople, and cvervbodr
-ecmed in hurry- The jMi-toffice was
crowded. Xo one seemed to have any time
to talk, but oon I found Mr. C. S. Bowman,
senior member of the law firm of
"Bow in in & Bticher." I made known :ny
business, which was on settled, not so sat
isfactorily as 1 had hoped, bat settled per
manently. Mr. Itowman seemed to be at
Lei-ure, so we sat down; and by inquiry,
learned the follow ing facts concerning tho
city and its surroundings :

A TALK ABOUT THE QUEER WEATHER.
AVc all want to compare a present season
with some on of the past coming within
our observation, but in fact, probably no
two seasons of any singlo life time are alike.
AH winters arc cold and all summers are
hot, but except in long lapses of time or
cycles of j ears probably no exact dupli
cates or counterpa'U ot seasons occur. So
far as Kansas is concerned, at least, the
climatic changes are such as renders each re
curring season widely different from tho
'arao season of the year or years previous.
winter. The character of tho summer rains
and that of the winter snows differ in a
marked degree from the character of those
of ptst years. Where is the sunshine, the
ojien clear sky and cutting winds, the
fine drifting snow, the features of
lormer Kancas winters! For two
almost three weeks the skies
have been dark and lowering, the snow has
been heavy and damp, Iving compact on the
earth ju't as it fell, intermingled with sleet,
and rain, and at times intensely cold. Ice
a foot thick before the holidays in a country
where have been winters in which no ice
could be stored, is remarked by every old
settler. Clean, dry, smooth roads have giv
en place to ruts, roughness or mud. The
old blizzard is mis-cd and the kind of spring
and fall wind whieh was wont to set on its
hind legs and howl for six weeks without
cessation, only lives in our memories. A
white Christmas and sleigh bells were actual
experiences in southern Kansas. These
great and marked changes may not be so
agreeable to contemplate may set at naught
the pleasant experience's and fine talk of
the past, but we believe they mean bigger
graneries and fuller pocket books, and yet
we fear, also, tho necessity for a greater care
for healthfulncss or immunity from disease.
sleighing in southern .Kansas is an un
usual thing and localise it comes but sel
dom and lasts but a short time, those who
enjoy the merry jingle of tbe bells and tho
gliding over the smooth sparkling surface
behind a pair of fleet and handsome step
pers are quick to take advantage of the op
Iortunity when it is presented. Yesterday
the surface of the roads were not very
smooth, and in some cases the turnouts were
neither fast nor elegant (in other cases they
were both) yet quite a number were enjoy
ing the luxury of n Kansas sleigh ride. But
few persons thus employed bad regular fine
sleighs, most of them being impromptu
amirs gotten up on very short notice and
ino-t of them being buggy tops mounted on
crude wooden runner". If a little more of
the beautiful- should now fall, we could
have some really pJod sleighing.

Wasiukgtox, D. C., Dec 30. The house
committee on weights and measures will
consider the coinage of silver dollars shortly
after the reassembling. Bland, of that com
mittee, who was detained at homo by illness,
has como to Washington. He says he will
oppose the measure for free and unlimited
coinage of both silver and gold.
The secretary of tbe navy sent the follow
ing telegram to all commandants of the
navy yards: "Di-eharge all employees who
have hitherto been paid under the six
months appropriation act, except those re
quired to prevent the destruction of proper
ty or loss of life, and all such must work
without agreement for compensation.
The December cotton report to the depart
ment of agriculture indicates a smaller vield
than the returns of the conditions in Oc
tober. Tbe October average was 74 per
cent, against 68 in '83; 88 in the great har
vest ot '82, and C6 in the disastrous season of
81. Returns of the condition in October
and the product in December have been
unusually divergent this year. Tbe first in
dicated a larger crop than last year, the lat
ter a product slightly less, or about 89 per
cent. The comparative decline is in the
states west of Alabama. The comparison
with hut year is as follows: North Carolina,
100; South Carolina, 101; Georgia, 101;
Florida, 103; Alabama, 103; Mississippi, 94;
Louisiana, 93; Texas, 89; Arkansas, 99; Ten
nessee, 101. Applying these percentages to
our figures for the crop of '83 they in
dicate a product of 398,000 bales in
.North Carolina, 502,000 in South Carolina,
7G0.000 in Georgia; 60,000 in Florida; 661,
000 in Alabama; 847,000 in Mississippi; 480,
000 in Louisiana; 995,000 in Texas; 513,000
in Arkansas 314,000 end in Tennessee. The
remaining territory will probably give about
50,000 bales. This makes the aggregate
5,580,000 bales. These figures are provis
ional and may bo slightly modified by fur

The secretary of the interior ha denied
the motion of the Central Pacific railroad
company for a review of the decision in the
case of TTarry Emerson vs. the company.
Tbe motion was based on a claim that at the
time the company's grant attached tho pre
emption right had expired, and henco did
not except the land from the grant. The
secretary held that admitting the expiration
of the pre-emption right, there was, never
theless, subsisting a right of settlers founded
upon bis settlement which was a valid claim
against the United States that under the
law it could only bo forfeited in favor of
some subsequent purchaser and which in

by a representative of the Associated Press
for bis views in regard to Govrrnor Cleve

Eaton, in reply, expresard himself as follows:

It would M uaparaanaue presianptsoa an
retard the letter as the deliberate. icmSeat
and tamely utterance cf a man who compre-,
heads the srtaatksi aad ha tbe cciinge to
foDow his convictions and IU duties. It U
rov cfcattonn oa tbe subtect to which it re-
late. The views of tbe letter are those com-
toon to all true atatesaiea of bothpartiw.
These view are tbos most vapidly growicg
in the hearts of the people- Tbe pobev dis-
closed in tbe letter is that by which alone
his party can retain power or" the coaalry
eacarss decay. It show plainly that we are
to have bo mixed rabiaet acd so timid or
honest coaraee ia the
win be one ia broad coatrast ta
the hut Democratic admlautration, which
, was, weak, evasive and scorsjed; was void of
coble and growiagteatioieat, ad didnot
do injustice to my polhiaaPc opponents, bmv
I artist think aoaay of. these have been bop-4
ing uov. vieveiana wouio ne rcaar to
break his pledges and trifle with bis convic
tions. This letter oueht t4 dispel all such
illusions, and is therefore .timely. Place
hunters of bis party may yet give him much
trouble and perhaps may bring their party
to ruin by tLeir greed for oAce. The Dem
ocratic party now standVas it did when
Buchanan was elected, where two roads sep
arated, one leading to boaor and victory,
and the other to shame and iefeat. Its fate
deeeads on its choice of roams and leader.
If I cared more for my party than
for my country, I should hope the
greed and clammor for places and spoil,
would break through tbe civil service laws
and rules and engulf the new president,
with all the statesmen of his party. The
declaration of tbe letter, that "the lessons of
tbe past should be unlearned,' may well bo
pondered over by BepublissW as well ss
Democrats. It is 'just ten years since Preti
deat Grant, through a snecial aaessaire. was
asking the EepubTicaa conMi to make a
small appropriation for tbasnlorceaeat of
tbe civil jservice ruleM o whtsh the republi
can Dartv was solemnly altdeed. - Unfor
tunately,' there ''were no ts4iainen. then in
congress who could see that tisk bcw cause,
witn its elements oi'jpoteocy in
the near future, was Mgianiag , to
stir the hearts of tbe peopW, In the eves
of the Kepnblican leadeja the " early
friends of the course were eatirasiaitics and
doctrinaires, at whom partisaa journal's es
pecially delighted to sneer, '"e- aaember in
either house cared to even caQ for tbe yeas
and nays on the appropriation. ( Amid jeers
ana laughter civil service reform tntno
opinion of tho leaders who wesw it easeaies,
hi consigned to the tomb f earpalet!.
Abort that time the Republics aartr 'en
tered apon a slow decline. Jobbery- and
MtroBace-moneering more and moro
flourished. At that timo too, began,
and soon afterward was carried forward
through many affiliated organizations that
broad appeal'to tho virtue and wisdom of
tbe country wnicn two years ago convinces:
a reluctant congress that a reform sentiment
must bo heeded. A civil service reform
bill was prepared bv courageous and
patriotic Democrats, Pendleton in
the senate and Willis in tho
the house, to whom the country owes much,
brought in that bill, to vvbicb Jteptiblicans
contributed by far the most in speech, earn
estness and votes to make a law. But their
return to found principles on this subject
was rather lato ana their use of them in the
last canvass rather feeble and equivocal.
Facts which in my opinion, insured their de
feat. They thus gavo the Democrats a
chance to capture that cau.e, and now that
reform sentiment having grown to be a great
political force, having captured tbe empire
state, and under the leadership of Governor
Cleveland shape its administration to reform
methods speak in firm, de-cisivte and unmis
takable language through the letter the
president-elect, whom that, sentiment
has this early in its cour.-e i brought to
the head of the nation. In the-e facts
n e mav see a part of the lesson to be un
learned. It seems to me plain where the
president stands and which roads he regards
as the true road to honor and duty. But
will his party unlearn the lessons of 'its own
folly or gain wisdom from the folly cf its
opponents? Will it resi-t his wise leader
ship under the new civil serce law? As

nimity unprecedented in ourj history, ha

Milne having made a determined personal
fight as chairman of the committee oa
Quotations asainst permitting bucket shoos
to have quotations. It U statsd that when
he began the war there was ,over ofiOO of
those institutions in existence. It was
necessary to accomplish this to throw over
contracts with telegraph tympanies, to eject
irom tea aoor exchange ail market reporters
in the employ ot telegraph companies, and
to employ reporters who should be at
tacbees of tbe board of trade itself. Tbe
fight grew bitter and practically embraced
every large citv in toe union. All the
boards of tradeln the country loined in tbe
I crusade, except the Detroit board of trade.
1 be charge, has now been, made against ilr.
Milne fha he has been furnishing tbe firm of
Lampare sfc Co., and Detroit, with quota
tion'; and allegation-is also guide that'Lattt
pare & Co. is a bucket shop. Mr Otilne
acknowledges having transacted business
with Ltunpare Se Co., and contends that the
firm was doing legitimate business. Mr.
Milne pow desires this matter investigated;
and it is now claimed that these allegations
against Mr. Milne have originated largely
from tbe bucket shops in retaliation.
Ottumw la., Dec. 30. Near the town
of Blakcsbtirg, this county, fifteen rules west
of here, Pleasant Anders was hung by
eight masked men in November, 1882, near
Blakesbttrg. Chris McAlistcr was murdered
at his residence and u fer months thereafter
Pleasant Anderson was arrested for tho
murder and had a trial one year ago at
Oskaloosa, Iowa, the trial lasting two weeks.
There was a strong array of circumstantial
evidence againt him and he was acquitted.
A strong conviction prevailed at Blakes
burgtbat he was guilty. Bd feeling had
prevailed, and last night he was seized at
IhQ home of hit father-in-law, taken In a sled
to it school bou-e, a kind of a mock trial
had before a jury of eight men
and by them sentenced to bo huns. Nearly
a hundred persons had gathered at tho
school house-, among whom he seemed to
have no defenders, and at about 10:30 last
night they took him to tho scene of the
murder of McAllister and hung him to tho
limb f a cott)awood tree- lie protested
his innocence to tliela-t. His body was left
banging for over two hours, and finally
taken down by order of a magistrate who
went to the scene, and a coroner was sent
for. From the temper of the crowd it was
evident thev would brook no interference.

lie oinsideresl unconstitutional from begin
ning to end, and the sooner wo should go
back to the strict construction of our con
stitution, the belter it would be for the
American people. Tlie government's rev
