Ex-Governor Thomas A. 0born,
minister (o Brazil, arrived at his home
in Leavenworth last week.
A good many strawberry growers
have been desiring plants of Judge
Harris. He says those who want
them ought lo come now as the season
is just right.
In Kansas there arc eighty-seven

there have been twenty-nine changes

It is now well determined that the
fiiitcd States will escape the present
year from the ravages of the cholera.
This gives many mouths more for
preparation which can rob the disease
of its chief terrors-. Science has not
taught us much about the treatment
and cure of this disease, but il has
taught u how wc may escape its rav
ages and the panic resulting therefrom.
So far the Republican county con
ventions of Kansas this fall, are ex
pressing no opinion as to prohibition,
the matter is being treated as settled
apparently. The law-making power
have done all that they can do. In lo
calities where the public seutimcutis
strong enough the law is enforced as
to the open saloon, but where this is
not the case the old rule, lc-s the rev

COAL IN ARKANSAS.
It is known that fine beds of coal
cxi-t in the eastern portion of the In
dian Territorv, and that the i-amc de-
noiits extend over into western Ar
kansas. The Wichita ami Ft. Smith
road would tap the-e coal regions
within one hundred and fifty miles
and run through them a distance of
.... liTmilri'il niilos. The coal is of
easy access, the vein-, being from throe
to live feet in thickness. The follow
ing from the Arkansas Democrat will
prove of interest:
The development of the coal t'elds
of the upper Arkans-is valley i-. a mat
ter of much importance to our com
merce. In the counties of Veil. Logan,
Scott, Sebastian, Franklin, John-on
and I'ope there are millions of tons
mi cn:il lvinL' undisturbed in the
Im.niii of'ilm earth that should be
limtiirlil out to be utilized at home
and made one of our leading articles of
vnort. Roth the Valley railway and
ihc; Arkansas river inuclrate the heart
of thcgrcai coal region, and it is s-onic-uhat-siiiL'uhir
that so little has been
done up to this time in the develop
ment of the initio. Coal, in immen-e
quantities, is shipped to New Orleans
from l'cuic-vlvania, Ohio and Illinois.
Whv cannot Arkansas coal, which is
five'hundred to eight hundred miles
nearer the same market, be shipped
with profit to our miner-? Why can
we not open additional markets at
home and in Texas? The develop
ment of our coal miues, with a froh
impetus to manufacturing interests,
would he a great boon to our state.
Arkansas Citv, Sept. C.
To the Editor or the Eagle.
Business men and mechanics are
feeling quite jubilant in anticipation
of the early completion of the South
western road to this city. The road
is already graded to Wiufield and the
limit for its completion to this point
is December 1st.
Many very handsome stone and
brick buildings have been erected this
summer, showing a steady and sub
stantial growth iu the busiuc-s inter
ests of the place.
Saturday's train brought iu a noted
character in the person of Tom Arm
strong, who killed James Reilly here
four years ago, aud was sentenced for
fifteen yea r.s. He returns with a par
don from the governor iu his pocket.
More than any other place in south
west Kansas, Arkansas City is favored
with a very big slice of the Territory
trade, aud which ha- proved to be ex
irpinnlv urolitablc. This trade is
largely from the Indians who generally
have au abundance of ready cash, aud
arc usually prodigious buyers when it
comes lo substantial in the wa 01
It is both amusing and a study to
watch the Indians when thev come to
town to trade. Chancing in a store
while ouc of them., a big Pawnee chief,
was nurchasiu!' a glumly of groceries,
wc noticed that this lordly sou of the
forest had two of his wives with him,
(mil ilirv ii-tiltiiI to their backs a
papoo-e each. But uhat made us feel
very small indeed, was the way this
big chief made his squaws pack the
groceries while he tlid the bujing.
Sacks of Ho wer, packages of coffee and
baking powder the quaws hid lo car-rv-
while ITncle Sam's protege in his
lordly ease did nothing but voicii'erate
an appreciative grunt when the store
keener assured him that everything
he oflered him was hcaper good.
On Saturday Mr. II. O. Meigs oi
the real estate firm of Xel-on & Meig-,
kindly hitched up his blooded mare
aud drove us out to view the canal and
water power which Arkan-as Ci'y is
so justly proud of. This eaual i
furnishing power for three large llour
ing mills, and could ea-ily run three or
four more, with the present amount
of water. These mills are the Arkan
sas City roller mill, the Canal and the
Kaglu mills, with a combined capacity
of from live to six hundred barrels
Arkansas City ha- tuuloiiuieui a

be enlarged and lengthened, which
will then provide power for at least
twenty manufacturing estibli-hment-.
