Hudson's letters to Le welling are
good. Iu the language of the high
school girl, "they are Just splendid,"
but when will the last one appear.
An Interview from Carl Shurz and
Wayne MncVeagh as to their opin
ions of the new cabinet would be in

If the State Senate and House of
Itepret-etitatives will pans a good
freight bill, the people of the state
will overlook many of the blunders
thus far committed.
"Home, Society anil Republican
ism," Is the motto of the Greens
burg Jlanncr. The word Republi
canism aloue would do aB well, as it
stauds for the home and society.
Lkwellinh's manifestoes and
Allen's dementing opinion should
bcpubllfdied as an appendix to Hud
sou's hook. As campaign documents
tiiey would be equally interesting.
If there Ik one thing more than
another that Chicago enjoys, it is a
right good mayoralty fight, and from
all appearances the one they are en
joying now gives good satisfaction.
All interest centered in the de
cision of the Supreme Court, which
was given to the public last Satur
day morning at 9 o'clock. The case
was brought by L. C. Gunn.who bad
been summoned to appear before tbe
Douglass house as a witness. Here
fused to appear, and was arrested by
the Bergeant-at-arms of tbe republi
can house for contempt, whereupon
be applied to the Supreme court to
be discharged, on the grounds that
the republican bouse bad no author
ity to arrest him. The decision of
this case necessitated the court to
pass upon tbe legality of the repub
lican house. Tbe testimony was ta
ken Tuesday and Wednesday, and
on Thursday able attorneys on both
sides argued the case. At 9:25 Sat
urday morning Chief Justice Horton
delivered his opinion, which sustain
ed tbe republican organization as the
legal liouBe of representatives. The
plea of tbe populists haa been that
the courts had no jurisdiction, and
the chief justice premised bis opin
ion as to the question at issue, ae
"Tbe liberty of a citizen Is In con
troversy. But the Btatute of this
state provides that no court or judge
shall inquire into the legality of auy
judgment or process whereby a party
Is In custody, or discharge him, when
the term of commitment has not ex
pired in tbe following case:

It wns fortunate for Justice Allen
that be overheard a few remarks on
the ii!uati'in from 'ut-iders before
the lime arrived for hiopluion, else
he would hive had nothing to say.
It 1h now allcdged that the Kansas
populist have not only vacated the
middle of the highway, but have
been travelling on the wrong road
all winter. Thli is important if

It has been Miggesled that should
the populists conclude to move the
capital, the building now at Topeka
could be lined us an ineane asylum.
It ha- been puliMeiitly tested this
winter to prove lt adaptability.

we venture the assertion that Mr.

Willi ita will hold republican
primaries, and nominate a straight
republican city ticket for the spring

pular just now in Kansas, after tbe
experience of the past few weeks,
which was brought on largely by the
aid of democratic votes.
"Wanti.ii-A cargo of young
wives," was the heading of a reccut
South Dakota advertisement In a
Sew York piper. It might be well
for the Sew Kliglalid beauties to en
quire what lias become of the old
ones before emigrating westward.
Tiif. only mistake the populists
made in conducting their parliamen
tary school A-as, they should have
called it earlier In the season so as
not to have interferred with the
business of the state. The people of
the state would not have felt so In
censed about It a they do now.
Thkkk was one appointive office
the governor had very few ap
plicant for, and that was Labor
Commissioner. Finally a man
named Todd of Kl Dorado was In
duced to accept it, when assured
that very little lab r was necessary
iu the dirchargc of the duties of the
MihS-nriiiANSgrin all over when
they realize tin benefit the Topeka
squabble has been to them. It has
attracted public attention so univer
sally that the boodle acts of the Mis
souri legislature have passed unno
ticed. So wonder the Kansas City
papers print the Topeka proceed
ings oil the first page and the JeHVr
son City wrancllncs on the Inside.
Therefore, we have before us, nec
essary for our determination, the
question whether the body or the
House which authorized Cleveuger
as sergeant-at-arms to arrest and de
tain Gunn, had auy legal or consti
tutional authority so to do."
The Chief Justice then proceeded
to deliver one of the most able
opinions ever given In Kansas. He
reviewed every feature of the case,
quotiug law and authorities for every
step he took, and no man can read
bis opinion in full and believe that
partisan feeling had anything what
ever to do with his decision. At its
close, he announced that Justice
Johnson coucurred with him In the
case, aud that Justice Allen dissent
ed. Associated Justice Allen then de
livered his dissenting opinion. He
quoted no law or cited no authorities
lor his position, but held that the
recognition of the populist house
by the governor aud senate was suf
ficient to make them the legal house.
As a sample of bis manner of
delving to the very bottom of a
question, aud to the authorities be
recognizes as standard, we quote the
following from his opinion:
"I hope I shall be pardoued for re
ferring to tbe fact that I was iu the
Senate at the time of the discussion
of the resolution recognizing the
Duusmore House of Representatives.
It is my good furtune to be acquaint
ed with many of the senators, and
among them men afllliatiug with the
republican party, lawyers of great
learning aud ability whose opinions
are entitled to great respect. In tbe
discussion of that resolution from
the republican side, it was conceded
by several of these learned and dis
tinguished senators that if.the gover
nor of this state had recognized tbe
Duusmore House ns tbe legal House
of Representatives, aud if mat reso
lution should be passed by the Seuate
of the state of Kausas that the whole
question was concluded, that was an
ultimate aud tlual judgemeut and
decision of the power which under
the constitution and law of this state
was authorized to hear aud finally
decided the question as to which of
these conflicting bodies was the law
ful House or Representatives. Tbe
opinions or tUese senators It seems to
me are entitled to great respect."
Is there a justice of the peace In
Kansas who would quote street
rumor as a part of bis opinion in a
question of la w ? We do not belle ve
there is, aud the spectacle an Asso
ciate Justice of the Supreme Court
presents to the world by so doing, is
humiliating indeed. It is fortunate
for Kausas that only one member of
the Supreme court interprets tbe
law as does Justice Allen, else In a
short time there would be no law.
The decision has been accepted as
final by the populWt house. On Mon
day its members recognized Speaker
Douglass, and at last, when the time
has almost arrived for adjourn
ment, these reform statesmen pre
sent themselves for duty. Thus ends
one of the most disgraceful, uncall
ed for, and injurious conflicts that
ever occurred in this or any other
state, and for what? mere political
advantage. A set of men having a
governor, and a majority In the sen
ate of their kind, were willing to
sacrifice every business Interest of
tbe state In a squabble for control of
the lower house, which tbey knew
they were not entitled to. But they
forgot for tbe moment they were In
Kansas. It might have worked In
some states, but not here.

Mr. Cleveland's official family has
been announced, and taken as a
whole is universally considered a
very strong combination. In its se
lection Mr. Cleveland seems to have
followed bis own ideas of tbe situa
tion entirely, and democrats as well
as republicans, are mystified at the
result Secretaries Gresham and
Carlisle will have much to do with
the success or failure of the new ad
ministration, as measures of great
national import will come before
their departments to be solved.
Great things are expected of Carlisle
as be Is an ideal Democrat, and
strong enough with bis party associ
ates to carry through any policy he
may desire. Just how be will satis
fy tbe dtflereutelements of his party,
that In tbe last campaign fought in
tbe south for wild cat money, In the
west for free silver, and for gold only
In the east, is difficult to predict, yet
be will probably accomplish that
feat to tbe satisfaction of bis ad
mirers at least. Judge Gresham
seems woefully out of place in this
body, yet he is a man of great ability.
This appointment Is sort of a recog
nition of the populist element that
silently aided Cleveland by voting
for Weaver, as he was the first choice
of the populists for president, but
declined tbe empty honor. So tbe
populists are pleased with bis
selection, the republicans have
confidence fu bis ability, while the
democrats have nothing to say in re
gard to it, as their breath was en
tirely knocked out of them by
the announcement of his selection.
With Herbert at the head of the
Navy department, it is thought tbe
republican policy in this direction
will be continued as of course It
Bhould be. J. Sterling Morton, of

their qualifications and ability to
handle governmental aflalrs.

Yes, that is too true, but we have a
determined set of men in Salina, es
pecially among the younger classes,
and they will endeavor to hold it
down. That crinoline will come, we
have no doubt, and although tbe
ladles unanimously condemn Its re
appearance, yet they will all march
to the stores and make their selec
tions in due time. It will however
be a great hindrance to the suffrage
movement, as a woman arrayed in
its' folds will not attempt to lead In
politico, business, or the professions,
as the management of the dreaded
hoopsklrt will absorb most of her
time. On this thought the New
York Tribune illustrates very vividly
as follows: "As an illustration of
how the deadly crinoline throws its
tentacles around woman aud retards
her progress, we have only to refer
to the recent case of Mrs. Lease, of
Kansas. Mrs. Lease had tbe Sena-
torship positively within her grasp
when the fatal intelligence of the
approach of crinoline reached ber.
Calling ber faithful political sup
porters around her, she said : "Gen
tlemen, I cannot give my attention
to law-making in the Seuate or the
United States and manage a hoop
skirt. Withdraw my name!" Thus

When our good old republican

think of this, and remember that
John Martin is in the senate, and is

The President appointed Burton
Haucbett.a republican, to be Justice
of the Sixth Federal Judicial Dist
rict, mad vacant by the appoint

Hon. C. E. Faulkner has an able
article In the Atchison Champion
entitled "Support or Public Institu

pares her record ot caring for the in
sane, deaf, blind, Teble minded and

or the other states, and makes a
splendid showing lor Kansas. In
nearly eery Instance Kansas has
paid less per captla for caring for her
unfortunates than any other of the
Wit ether democrats, republicans,
lopullsts, or prohibitionists, we all
admire Mrs GroverCIeveland. 8he
is In fact the leading lady or the
land, and even In private life, was
as much quoted and sought after as
many of the wivesof past president
were during their official career.
She is bright, handsome, and above
all, sensible woman, and her idea of
having a home of her own separate
from tbe White House during tbe
next fouryears, will serve to increase
tbe admiration all American
citizens now have for her. Nothing
Is so dear to the true wife and moth
er, as her home and that Mrs. Cleve
land recognizes that fact, and In
tends to preserve Its sanctity even
from an admiring, but curious pub
lic that has for the second time hon
ored ber husband and herself, is to
her great credit. She will also em
ploy a private secretary so that even
her time may not be taken up by
public matters to the neglect of her
family. Mrs. Cleveland is a true
American mother, and has set a
worthy example to society ladles
that they would do well to emulate.
The revolution In Kansas Is ended
