THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 188S.
Sterling has bubble socials. What
are theyV Gazette.
They are meetings of Democratic
civil service reformers.
A writer from southwestern Kansas
says, that the recent Stevens county
outrages were perpetrated by Ken
tucky rebel Democrats. The story does
read a little like Ku-Kluxism.
Great crops are promised in the
Northwest, ereat crops also in the
Southwest. It is a big crop year all
over this country. Now let the Euro
pean monarchs stop their silly kis3ing
business and get into a fight.
What in the world do the Democrats
of the Fifth Kansas district want?
They say the people are going to elect
Dr. Tobey because he is a free-trader
and are going to defeat John A. Ander
son because (as they allege) he used to
be a free-trader. For goodness' sake.
trentlemen. take one side or the other
and stick to it.
If the Industry convention hhould
result in a candidate from each county.
it behooves the delegates from Dickin
son to unite upon a man who can carry
the full vote of the county. A man
who represents a faction would make a
sorry race for Senator against a man
who could command the unanimous
support of Clay county.
The Capital would be glad to hear
the name of the county in Kansas that
has a field of corn less than sixteen
feet tall, is without a pair of vigorous
TTarriRnn and Morton -twins and does
not intend to increase its Republican
majority. If there be such a county in
all this state it has the sympathy of the
balance of the commonwealth.
Mr. Brice, secretary of the Demo
cratic Central Committee, is a rich
banker. He has large interests in sev
eral banks to which Mr, Cleveland's
Secretary of the Treasury, withoutany
authority of law, has loaned without
interest $2,500,000 of the public money.
Mr. Brice can well afford to devote
four months to the re-election of Mr.
"We admirelthe sturdy indepandecce
and fealty to Republicanism exibitedby
Senator Ingalls who will soon take the
stump for Harrison and Morton and
proceed to do Herculean work for the
party. And this notwithstanding the
scoring he has received at the hands
of some self-appointed censors in the
shape of editors'.who would read him
into limbo on account of the treachery
of his friends(?). He is still a Repub
lican all through and will be until he
dies. He is like a man who was ex
pelled from church". for differenty,kinds
of ungodly conduct, including profani
ty. On the following Sunday he went
to church, and, standing in the door
way, he howled out at the congrega
tion: "You can scratch my name off
the church roll if you want to, blank
you, but you can't scratch my name off
the Lamb's Book of Life, blank blank
you to blank."
A good example ot the way thes
laborites wilt when their wild state
ments are confronted by facts is related
by the Hope Herald as follows:
A few days ago, while H. J. Little,
the wealthy ranchman, was in town,
he met Mr. .N. Thurstin,ho is an ar
dent Union Labor man, and a political
discussion ensued. Mr. Little a is Re
publican of the deepest dye. The
question under discussion was the tariff
and during the debate Mr. Little made
the assertion that the wages of miners
in America were three times as much
as those of their English brothers. So
convinced was Mr. Little of the truth
of this statement that he offered to
back it with a bet of $500. Mr. Thur
stin, at once accepted the wager and in
company with Mr. Little started for the
Farmer's Bank. The former however,
weakened and would not bet, leaving
Mr. Little the victory, even if he did
not get the $500.
The Dreams of King Grover.
Now in the days of early August it
happened that the editor of the Re
tlectok, which is by far the best pa
per published in the valley of the
Smoky, looked for information concern
ing King Grover, and lo! in the columns
of a contemporary, surnamed Esteemed,
he chanced upon these words:
Now it came to pass at the end of
nearly four full years that Grover
dreamed. (He was a king beloved by
the people, a wise and just ruler, weigh
ing 325 pounds.)
And in the dream he stood by the
Atlantic Ocean. And he looked and
saw about him above an hundred men,
well favored and prosperous, and he
saw that these were workingmen.
And they were engaged at their work,
some in woolen mills, others in iron
mills: and it was so that they were em
ployed in all kinds of factories and all
kinds of work.
And, behold, a great horde of other
men came up out of the sea, ill-favored
and huncrv: and they devoured the
well-favored men. So Grover awoke.
And after rubbing his eyes and
listening to see that no widows or or
phans were breaking into tne treasury
Building, he slept and dreamed a
second time; and. behold, he saw a
great store of products of his country,
of good quality and fair to look upon,
even wool, and salt, and many more
like things produced by his country.
And there came after a great multi
tude of products of the same kind, but
of poor quality, and blasted by the east
wind, and produced by cheap metnoas:
and the poor products did eat and make
wav with the cood products so that
there were none of them left. So
Grover awoie. and it was a dream.
And in the morning, after having
written a humorous piece about a sol
dier's widow and vetoed an orphan,
his spirit was troubled, for he thought
of his dreams, and he said to his ser
vant: "Go. call together the wise men
of the Democratic party." And the
servant departed, but straightway re
turned and said: "Master, there are
none." And it was so that the servant
had smitten the nail on the head.
And Grover was wroth, and called
his assistant ruler, Lamont. And he
spake to the assistant king his dream,
telling him of the company of well
favored men, numbering above an hun
dred, and of the mighty horde of ill-
favored and disreputable individuals
that devoured them, and even then it
could not be known that they had eaten
tbem, they still being as thin in the
llesh as before. And also of the boun
tiful products of the land, and how
there came other products, poor in
quality, but great in quantity, which
made way with them. And there be
none, he said, that can interpret tome"
Then spake his assistant majesty:
is easy, it you
is it: The two
dreams are as one. The workingmen
which you jaw, numbering above au
hundred, each stood for a year that this
country has prospered and grown fat;
and the well-favored products were the
same. And tne great norae or ni-iav-ored
workingmen and cheap products,
blasted by the east wind, were for the
years which will come when we estab
lish free trade throughout the land.
For it will be so that a mighty multi
tude of cheap products will come in
from other lands, and drive out the
products, and a swarm of poor work
ingmen will arise who will devour the
present prosperous ones; but it will be
a great thing for England."
Then spake Grover: "It is good, for
this is what we aim at; for, as you say,
it will be pleasant and profitable for
our dear friends in England. Go, and
proclaim free trade throughout the
But, as Grover turned and took his
pen, having just thought of a good joke
on a crippled soldier there aros8 a
mighty roaring, like unto a couple of
cyclones running into each other. And
the noise continued, and Grover and
his deputy highness were sore afraid,
as they did not wot of its meaning,
though it was soon clear to. them that
it was the Republicans getting to the
polls and casting their votes. And it
rolled up from all parts of the land, and
shortly after Grover put on his over
coat, for it was chilly, and took his
umbrella under his arm, and walked
out of the house; and as he journeyed
down the avenue he met a man coming
from the depot, carrying an old carpet
bag m his hand, ou one end of which
was the writing: "B. II., Ind." And
the stranger spake to Grover, and
asked him if he could direct him to the
White House. But Grover heeded him
not, and went his way, even unco the
wilderness of Red Top.

much of a hurry to. wait for such ante

What British Gold Is Doing.
TLeremaybe better authorities on
free-trade doings and the disbursements
of the Cobden Club than the Chicago
Tribune but we doubt it. The Tribune
has come near being read out of the
Republican ranks several times on ac
count of an alleged leaning toward free
trade. Hence the following from its
columns has peculiar interest:
Rumors are current that British gold
has been subscribed in large sums to
help re-elect Cleveland. It is the be
lief of many who are well posted that
the Democrats will virtually baye bar
rels of money sent over from England
within the next few weeks to scatter
throughout the country in the interest
of free-traders. A gentleman who ar
rived from England recently declared
that he never saw Englishmen so inter
ested in American politics before, and
nearly all were anxious to see President
Cleveland re-elected, because he repre
sented the true British idea of free
trade. He heard, and fully believed,
that English manufacturers had already
subscribed nearly $2,000j000 toward the
Democratic campaign fund. Thousands
of Cleveland badges and buttons, he
asserted, had been manufactured there
and sent to this country to be distrib
uted free. The Cobden Club, in Lon
don, was bestirring itself and doing all
it could to assist President Cleveland
financially and otherwise. Secretary
Fassett, of the Republican National
executive committee, was today asked
if he had heard anything about British
gold being sent to this country to help
the Democrats. He said he had heard
a great deal about it, and rather
thought that where so much smoke
prevailed there certainly ought to be
some fire. The Cobden Club, of Lon
don, he averred, was, according to di
rect accounts, doing yeoman's service
for the Democratic cause in the way of
sending over badges and buttons. It
is believed that the fund reported to
have been subscribed by the British
has reached this country and is now at
the disposal of the Democratic Nation
al Committee, with and by the advice
of President Cleveland.
How awfully oppressive is the silence
of the Democratic organs on -the old
bandanna racket. Never was a party
so soon laughed out of its chosen hobby.
"Dick, Jim and Bill" certainly de
serve the thanks of the better class of
citizens for so thoroughly settling boss
ru'e in Kansas. Hutchison News.
The above is .the veriest bosh. It is
the old cry of "stop thief." If anybody
knows of any more cunning political
shysters than the above named trio, we
should like to have their names for
publication. There hasn't been a po
litical job put up in southern Kansas
for ten years that hasn't borne the ear
marks of fDick" .Walker, "Jim" Hal
lowell and "Bill" Hackney. The Santa
Fe railroad has employed them as "pro
fessionals," and the railroad company
has never lost its money. While we
believe Mr. Humphrey to be an honor
able gentleman, we also belieTe that it
is not at all to his credit to have it
heralded over Kansas that he is the
product of sucha "political ring,"
as is run by "Dick," "Jim" and
"Bill," and that thesoonerMr.Humph
rey disclaims any intimate political
relations with such fellows, the
better it will be for the State ticket.
It is amusing to see the handsome
featured editor of the Gazette quote
the same handsome-featured editor oi
the Democrat and gravely agree with
the latter in every particular. It is a
kind of Dromio act with only one
Dr. N. D. Tobey must be hankering
for notoriety. He is going to make a
"school-hou&e" campaign, so our neigh
bor tells us, against John A. Anderson.
Well, his vote in November will com
pare with John A.'s about as a country
school house compares in size with the
National capitol. A free-trade ranter
will gain little sympathy in the 5th
3The idea of carrying North Carolina
for the Republican ticket has been rid
iculed a good deal, but judging by the
testimony of Democrats themselves, it
is not such a remote possibility after
all. A confidential appeal for money
from the Democratic State committee
of North Carolina has fallen into the
hands of the National Republican com
mittee. It is highly interesting from
a Republican point of view. It states
that the State is in doubt, that there
are dissensions in the Democratic party
and requests the payment of large contributions.

Abilene ought to be the news center
of Central and Western Kansas, and
would be but for one thing. The Ga

Press dispatches from this city and
such is its hide-bound old fogyism that
not three times a year is a sentence
sent over the wires from this city un
less by special correspondents. While
our neighboring cities are mentioned
almost daily in the metropolitan jour

the local papers.
During the past two months there
have been held here four important
conventions, yet not a word has the
Gazette crowd sent regarding them.
Last week two prominent citizens were
