SUNDAY MORNING. JULY 18.
Gov. Martin has gon caBt to attend
the mectiug of the board of the
national soldiers home. Ho will be
absent two weeks.
Tho steamer Kansas Miller" made
the trip from Arkansas City to Fort
Smith. Her cargo consisted of 200.000
pounds of Kansas flour. Of this 100,
000 was disposed of in the Indian Ter
ritory. Dry and hot as it is and as it has
been for some time in Kansas the peo
ple of the state hare cause to be grate
ful that is as well with us os it is-There-is
scarcely a state or section but
has suffered far worse.
The National Teacher's Association
closed its meeting at Topeka Friday
night and the members and visitors
who had not left previously hastily
packed their grips and departed.
The meeting was a big thing, too big
for Toneka by odds ; she wasn't equal
to the occasion.
Is it not about time that congress
take some action to prevent tho land
ing in this country of foreign converts
to the polygamous doctrines of Mor
monism. We arc continually making
war on polygamy in Utah, yet we per
mit recruits to como from other
lands. Tho same query may also be
asked in reference to the immigration
of anarchists who are doing as much
harm to society as Mormons, though
in a different wav.
John Roach, the great American
ship builder, is reported dying, more
from mental than physical infirmity.
What wonder is it, after tho unprece
dented and uncalled for persecution
he has suffered at the hands of the
prcsont administration. By the cruel,
not to say tyrauical, order of tho dude
who 6its at the head of tho navy de
partment his magii5ccut ship build
ing interest was closed, which resulted
in his financial ruin. It is said his
broken fortune is his constant theme.
In answer to a question from the
governor touching the eligibility of
women to the office of justice of the
peace. Attorney General Bradford
says they arc, under the fourteenth
amendment to the national constitu
tion. If eligible to political office why
snouia tticy not no also to exercise
the right of suffrage? Will General
Bradford tell us,? Not that we are
woman's suffragists, but wo would
like to know tho grounds of the in
consistency in practice in this matter.
The New York Herald expresses the'

What does that great railroad prog
nosticator, the Wichita Eaolk, think
of the D. ,M. &A. now? Has it the
infamous gall to assert that the road
is still on paper? Yes, it certaiuly has.
The Eagle has made many very bit
ter enemies over its cour-c in regard
to this road. Norwich News.
The above is the thiucst sort of flap
doodle. Years ago whn the D. M. &
A. was struggling and worrying for
existence the Eagle did crack au oc
casional joke at it, but never out
raged it. Fact is in all probability it
never would have been built had not
tho Missouri Pacific system, the south
western headquarters for which is
located at Wichita, taken hold of it
and put it through.
The hot weather seems to be having
tho effect of stirring up bile and
bringing bad blood to the surface all
around. A few days ago a periodic
outbreak occurred in famous Rowan
couuty, Ky., and military interfer
ence had lo bo employed beforo order
and quiet could be restored. But the
latest demonstration of tho effects of
the super-heated atmosphere upon the
beligcrant propensities of man was
shown in the halls of congress Friday.
A spat between Representatives Cobb
and Laird culminated iu a fisticuff be
tween them, tho details of v hich were
given in jesterday morning's dis
patches. Both of theso gentlemen are
reprcscnicu to be hue specimens of
physical development, and but for the
interference of mutual friends, the
capitol habitues might have witnessed
a mill after tho Sullivau-Kyau fashion.
We mention this occurrence to show
that tho country ib recovering from
tho regime of southern chivalry which
for mauy years enforced the code
duello as tho mode of settling personal
differences growing out of a cla-h iu
debate, or otherwise, between honor
able reresentatires. To take a dis-
pasGioneu view such outbursts of
passion are not creditable to the diplo
macy or statesmanship ofleaders, nor
to the manhood of any, however
strong tho promptings of nature
to resent a personal aflront. The
simple denunciation of "liar," or kin
dred epithet, does not prove any
thing, except a lack of civility on the
part of tho pereon using the same,
anymore than the resentment of such
by a blow or a report to the uso of
aeauiy weapons disproves it. The
more philosophic aud truly courag
ous way to meet such denunciation is
to demand the proof of the assertion
and if It is not forthcoming leave the
accuser to staud self-accused as he must
and will in tho eyes of fair minded
people. This will prove severer and
more effective punishment, if the as
sailant is worthy of consideration,
than to perforate his hide with pistol
shots or pummel his noso with a
clinched fist. We kuow it is a diffi
cult matter to restrain the natural in
. atincU that swell up at times, and if
they must have vent in physical ac
tios, employ natures weapons like tho
doughty combatants last above named J

Tho Albany Times, in a sketch of
tho new capitol at Albany, says: Ilero
plotted Shauahan and Cleveland to
employ 500 extra men on the canals in
October, 1884, and here were other

ANOTHER RAILROAD FOR ATTICA
To the Editor or the Drily Eazle:
Yesterday petitions were circulated
iu this, Ruulla, township for an elec
tion to vote bonds in aid of the St.
Louis, Kansas & Northwestern railway
which is to build from a junction with
the Border road at Anthony to
Attica and from here in a nonhwest
crnly direction to the west line of the
state. The petitions were signed by
ueariy four-fifths of the resident tax
payers, and the commissioners will
order an election at their meeting to
day. The road is to be built and oper
ated to this place within one year from
date of election. The bonds will carry
by a large vote. The amount asked is
$24,000. This insures the future pros
perity of Attica and Harper county.
Already a change is noticeable on our
streets. Those who were wanting to
sell are withdrawing their property
from tho market and contemplating
improvements. Several brick build
ings are goiug np, and others arc in
contemplation. The United Bretheru
will soon erect a largo and commodi
ous brick church, and the Presbyte
rians arc endeavoring to follow the

and Kiowa? Why not? Your mer
chants want the wholesale trade of
thi section. What will they do to
get it? "To help yourself, help your
neighbor," is a pretty good maxim
for towns as well as for individuals,
and we believe Wichita will act wisely
and help persnado the Santa Fe to
straightcu its line from there to
Crops of all kinds are fine, but will
suffer materially unless rain comes
soon. The "hot wave" yesterday
was a severe call for tho corn.
Our people have anxiously watched
tke signal flags on the new Peoples'
Bank building for sometime and have
tried hard to discover some relation
between the weather signals and the
Yesterday our enterprising mer
chant and fellow-citizen, D. J. G.
Wilson, hoisted a black flag over his
store. He was waited upon at once
by an emissary of the weather clerk
to know what such a flag meant in
time of peace. The doctor was frauk
to admit that he didn't know what
"black stands for," but he did not be
lieve his signal would mia the state of
the weather any further than that
"local rain or snow" sign of the
weather department. As a compro
mise both flags are stiil afloat to-day,
one telling of "local rains or snows,"
the other saying, "I don't know." In
deed, it is very refreshing1 when you
feel these hot waves sapping jour
vitality, to look up to Hazcn's weather
signal and seo his prediction of
"snow." What was it Shakespeare
said about soothing the craviugs of
hunger '-with bare imagination of a
feast." Yours for a few flakes,

CONCERNING THE WEATHER.
From the Atchison Champion.
It is a dry and dusty time. The up
per crust of tho earth is a fine powder,
and between it and the wan ashen sky
floats a fine haze of dust; the sun in his
course seems to kick up a dust, and
the moon shows a dirty face. In the
morning the lower air is dim with
something like a fog, hut it is not, it is
only the dust rising to commence work
for the day. Withal, it is hot. not as
hot as has Decn known, but just hot
enough to make the com curl np and
droop, just like the farmer's expecta
tions. It is & dry, gray and solemn
time. Still the Kansas man notes that

dusty and vagrant looking weeds in

may hope that tho thin, white and
ghostly clouds that steal up cautiously
above the horizon and then go back in
the face of the intolerant sun, may yet
effect what is called iu political con
ventions a "combination'' and "down"

tourists who went to Colorado are be

stunted pines, and laya rocks to which
their volcanic temperature seems to
have returned. Up in cool Minnesota
the people are down cellar silting on
chunks of ice to keep alive, while the
sun is settiug fire to the roof above
them. Kansas is somewhat hoi, but

"We, that is "our town," never have
anything but victories to relate. Last
Friday our base-ball club went to Col
wichaud did the Colwich Reds up
ia good shape again, although not as
bad as before, the score standing 15 to
13 iu favor of Audale.
Tho day following the Colwich
Reds went to Sedgwick and beat them
easily, 2 to 1..
We noticed an article In the Daily
Eagle from Sedgwick, which misrep
resents the game. Item Chaser says
that Colwich did not challenge Sedg
wick 'till Friday night preceding the
game. This is false, as we kuow to
our certain knowledgo that Colwich
scut the challenge Monday, by letter,
beforo the gamo was played Saturday,
so that they had at least five days in
which to gather up their players.
The Andales Eagles go to Hutchison
next Tuesday, to play them for $50 a
side. The game will be played at the
lair grounds and quite an interesting
time is anticipated by the boys.
Our gun club are talking at present
of sending a team of four to the Wich
ita shooting tournament. They do
not, however, have much hope of win
ning very mauy stakes.
