From every source ire learn that
the new towns on the Missouri
Pacific west of Sallna are In a moat
flourishing condition. New build
Ings are rising rapidly, new business
undertakings entered upon, farms
being purchased, large areas of land
being cultivated In fact the word
comes, "progress, progress, every
where." The Missouri Pacific has
opened up west of Balina one of the
most fertile districts In the state, and
tills country must support several
large cities. All this large country
is now and must for the future be
tributary to Salina. In all of these
new towns Sallna Is In everybody's
mouth, and the people look upon our
place as the Kansas City of the west.
They look upon Sallna as the source
from whence alt the wholesale trade
for this district must come; in fact
numerous dealers are alreapy pur
chasing their goops In Balina. East
ern wholesalers begin to talk of our
city as a location for such business
ventures, as having tio superior 'in
the state; and some of them begin
to whlnper that as soon as the tariff
rates, now Injured by the interstate
commerce law, can be satisfactorily
arranged, they will open up business
here. There is a most friendly feel
ing existing between Hallna and her
neighbors a friendliness that Im
proves and becomes better as ac
quaintance ripens. The cltliens of
the western towns themselves full
of vim and push admire the thrift,
enterprise and energy of Balina, and
for this for reason like to know us
and trade with us. It Is the duty of
our citizens to nurture .and cultivate'
and Improve this friendliness. They
can afford to aid their neighbors in
I the upbuilding of their respective
towns. Sallna loses nothing herself;
and on the other hand she gains
The Topeka board of trade have
boycotted the Kansas City Time
and Journal, and requested the citi
zens of Topeka to purchase the St.
Louis aiobe-Democrat, "for the rea
sou that the latter tells the truth of
Topekr, and publishes record of
events transpiring in this place,
while the Kansas City papers mis
represent Topeka by suppression."
A very silly act In our opinion. The
Topeka people will not, In tho first
place, obey the quasi-mandatory rec
ommendation of the board of trade,
and In the second place a booming,
go-ahead city cannot be damaged by
the misrepresentation of news
papers. This boycot business is a
rcllp of tho days when there was no
freedom of speech, and should be
annihilated in whatever form It may
spring up. Tho newspaper should
at least have the same freedom to
speak and act as the loud-mouthed
anarchist who preaches boycotting,
blood and burning. Topeka was
weak in publishing a boycot against
the Kaasas Ulty papers. Those
journals will profit more from the
edict than Topeka.

He was the calm, passionless, Im

they heard the mighty roar of Paris
awake, the sounding of the tocsin
and the long, interminable tramp of

ing to the barricades. Napoleon lit
a fresh cigar. In a single night he
smoked a hundred. Terrible mental
strain this, but bo abode. Marshal
Arnaud was slow. Napoleon bade
him make haste. Persltjuy doubted,
Napoleon bade him go to bed.
Morney talked too much, Napoleon
bode him hold his peace. Fleury
drank too much wine. Napoleon put
him under guard. Magnan asked
too many questions, Napoleon or
dered him not to speak again until
he was spoken to.

poses; "He says that I have not

That Is true. It never occurred to
me that I was called upon to do so."
In this matter he Is rather unfashion

apologize for having been a Union

THE rXIIIAX HATTLE IX- KAST rftlw
Editor Salina "Journal: Your
editorial the other day on the "bat-
tie" between two Indian tribes in
Kast Sallna recalls a few facte con
nected with that event. 1m the first
place it could hardly be called a bat
tle. It occurred In the summer of
1867, at the very time when Gov.
Walker with elx or seven hundred
cavalry ami infantry, and Slierman's
battery, had Invested the elty of
Lawrence and was threatening with
demolition a city Xttvcrniuetit under
the Topeka constitution. At that
time and previously the wild, no
madic tribes of the plains, the ('hey
eunes, Arapahoe. Kluwas, Coinau
ches and Sioux had drawn an imagi
nary Hue, ervtsdntt near the mouth
or the Saline and Solomon rivers,
and forbade the rrmitertl trlltcs then
Inhabiting east Kansas from hunt
ing or occupying tit country west of
It. In pursuance of I lie early policy
of the govern meat, waai tribes
.froBiwjUbiiv-iudiatmt Illinois and
Michigan, had been removed to
what Is now eastern Kanas, among
them the Pottawattunles. The no
madic tribes of the plains had Ih the
the first place regarded this as an
infraction of their right, but were
finally Induced to agree to it mi far
as eastern Kansas as concerned.
As these tribe In eastern Kansa
did not Iivewliollv by agriculture,
thy spent inirt of their time in
hunting for the bulraht, on the land
west of their rebervatious. On the
occasion in question, a parly of
Pottaw otomie. mueh le than a
hundred all told. Including women
and children, was ou a summer
hunt tu dry bullhlo meat. As the
buffalo were scarce east of the line
ot the Saline and rolomoii, the
crossed the threatened "dead line.
aud were cnmH'tl on the sjMtt where
the old graveyard stood, and be
tween the mounds of the upper
rulll. The Cheyenne whit were then
camped near Cow Creek, learned ol
the intrusion, and a tlie at that
time maintained- a little army of
soldiers, some three hundred picked
men, most of tin force was sent
against this Iwnd of Pottawatomie
hunters. The Cheyenne warriors
came in on the ridge that skirts the
bend ef the Smoky to the tsmtheast,
coming down over the up-ter hill,
aud attacked just as the day wat
breaking. It was" a surprise and a
massacre rather than a light. A few
of the Pottawatomie warriors seized
their rifles and trhsl to hold their
enemies in check, while the others
tied north acrus the Smoky Hill
rier. Iii the attack um- woman aud
two children Were killed, beside a
number of men. The precise loa of
the Pottawatomles has been arl
ously stated, but fourteen in all were
buried ou the hill near the spot
where they were eiicauiHs. One
Pottawatomie was liot wliib strug
gling to cross tlit rher at Ihe siot
where the drift afterward piled up,
where Iron avenue enie nearest the

few on their -xmle, the others tin

came to it, antl ran to the e roneing
of -the Saline, where the old mili
tary bridge oil learR's s.'-'d then
stood. At Hint lliiM about the only
white settler in this eonnty was
Godthardt. Sehiiqtel, who was then
