The tariff proved to be "a tax" up
on the Democratic party when it tried
to overthrow it. '
On the Wisconsin Democratic State
ticket, which by the way was defeated,
there were bnt two native American
citizens all the rest being foreign
born. It is very fortunate that Mr. Cleve
land issued his Thanksgiving procla

The New York Journalist, the lead
ing newspaper of the country devotei'
to journalism, will issue a magniflcem
holiday number, containing the poi
traits of about thirty leading editoi
and as many short stories by the bes
writers of America.
We gladly give Mr. Seeds' statemei.t
regarding the Hope Herald's "supp n
of his candidacy." Mr. Seeds' word i
good and his admission that the Hei
aid supported him (though as he sajb
for nothing) effectually proves ou1
claim and closes the case.
Twelve years ago, Gen. Grant said
"When the Democratic party conic
near to complete control of the country
it will break its back across the All
gheny Mountains on the tariff ques
tion." The Old Commander has beei
handsomely vindicated as a political
Judge Seeds may console himsell
that he will be just two years farther
along in the law practice in 1890 than
he would have been had he been re
elected probate judge. It is a pity to
spoil a good lawyer by storing him
away in such a small pigeon hole as
the probate judge's office.
Should the Democratic claim of a
majority of one in the House prove
correct,it is not at all likely that the fact
will prevent the admission of the Ter
ritories as it is well known that several
Democratic members will not obey tin
caucus' dictates but will do what b
right by the people of the Northwest
Says Senator Ingalls in encouraging
young men to persevere:
Lincoln, the rail mauler; Grant, the
tanner; Wilson, the shoemaker; Mor
ton, the hatter's apprentice; Douglas,
the carpenter; Garfield, the canal boy:
Thaddeus Stevens, Phil Sheridan, all
traveled the rugged road to renown.
The postoffices are being grabbed for
eagerly all over the Nation. It may be
well to remind the eager applicants
that Mr. Harrison will not be inaugu
rated for four months yet, that he will
not dismiss all the Democratic office
holders at once and that when he does
many will be called but few chosen.
America, the Chicago journal, is evi
dently edited by a lover of the fragrant
weed. Speaking of women urging men
10 give up the use of tobacco, it says:
Tobacco is as necessary to mankind
as tea to women, and not a.whit more
injurious either. If women wish to
retain the love of men,' they can do so
far more readily by humoring their pe
culiarities than by endeavoring to make
fools of them.
The Boston Globe professes to re
gal d it as complimentary to Mr. Cleve
land that in New York State he showed
gains in many cities while his heaviest
losses were in the country districts.
On the other hand, as the campaign
was fought ou the issue of the tariff, it
proves that farmers are unalterably op
- posed to any free-trade tendencies the
Yery opposite of the idea held by the
The anxiety among the Republicans
which has arisen in the past few days
regarding the control of Congress is not
entirely without cause. The count in
the various Congressional districts is
not yet completed and is not likely to
result as favorably to the Republicans
as at first thought. A Republican ma
jority of five or six seems reasonably
certain. Several seats will be contested
and until these contests are settled, the

More Evidence of Duplicity.
The following card explains itself:
Abilene, Kansas, Nov. 13. The
insinuation in the Abilene Reflector
of last Friday to the effect that I had
paid or was to pay ueo. Burroughs, ot
the Hope Herald, $25 or any other sum,
in exchange for his support of my can
didacy was wholly without foundation.
Mr. Burroughs was paid the regular fee
for my announcement. There wa3 no
bargain of any kind between us, either
for "a financial consideration or without.
I make this statement in justice to
Mr. Burroughs. W. P. Seeds.
The Reflector, being always will
ing to give all persons a fair hearing,
allows Mr. Seeds the above opportunity
to present his aide of the case. -
The card, it will be noticed, effectu
ally settles the question at issue that
the Hope Herald, a Republican paper,
though in some respects doing good
work for the party, as. we have all the
time given it credit for, supported
a Democratic candidate instead of the
"straight" Republican ticket. Indeed
Mr. Seeds reiterates the fact when he
refers to "his (Burroughs') support of
my (Seeds') candidacy," which is the
fullest and most conclusive evidence
we could ask for.
We frankly admit that if Mr. Bur
roughs did not get any pay for "his
support of my (Seeds') candidacy" he
is not as smart as we gave him credit
for. He was actually fool enough to
play the traitor for nothing.
The election is ovei and we will now
settle down to business and boom the
town.- About 7,531 exchanges.
Updu the cry that the Republican
party had saved the Union, and upon
the issue that a five per cent, reduction
of the tariff of 47 per cent, meant free
trade, the Republican party has rode(!)
into power. Topeka Democrat.
That's about where she "has rode,"
Colonel, and about the way bhe did it.
The story is told that when Ed. Lit
tle was making a speech out in Rooks
county some Democrat remarked
"Rats!" in response to one of his state
ments. "That's right," said Little
without" a minute's hesitation, "call
for what you want." The noise of the
Democrat's retreating footsteps was
Irowned by the cheers, of the audience.
The Democratic grumblers who com
plain of a scarcity of funds with which
to run the Democratic campaign have
raised a mutiny among Cleveland's
civil service reform officials. These
postmasters are beginning to inquire
what became of that ten per cent, as
sessment on the salary of every Demo
'ratic postmaster from Maine to Cali
fornia. "Another excellent book," writes si
Missouri editor, in the course of a lit
erary review, 'is entitled "The Bible,'
which we have just received. It is en
tirely different from 'Mr. Barnes of
New York.' spoken of above, but
abounds in thrilling incidents, and ow
ing to its moral character, is liable to
e of more benefit to the reader tlan
the work just referred to. Seveial
authors appear to have contributed to
it, the opening part being written 1 y
one whose nom de plume is 'Moses.
The editor cordially recommends the
Bible to all the readers of this paper.'
What do the Democratic leaders of
Kansas propose to do m the matter of
refuting the damaging slander put
upon the State by the man Galloway
who had charge of their campaigu.
They should not have permitted it in
the first place they could have dom
so, for they were fully advised of hi
plans and purposes and they should
have repudiated his work a sotn as i
was put upon the Public, having
neglected to prevent it. Bui afl r , er
tnitting their partisan zeal to suppiess
their convictions of rig t at the pr per
time to prevent the perpetration of the
outrage, will they still remain silent,
and by their silence continue to in
indorse the wrong done the entire peo
ple for which there is no redress? We
will see. Wichita Eagle.
It is possible that the whole electoral
vote of New York may not be given to
Harrison after all. It appears that the
Labor party had upon its ticket the
names of two Labor electors and thirty
four Republican electors, and cast
enough votes to defeat two of the Re
publican electors whose names were
not upon the Lobor ticket! But though
the Democrats may thus gain two elec
toral votes in New York the result will
not be changed. The incident is inter
esting, however, as showing that the
Labor vote in New York State defeated
A good many sample copies of that
pink demoralizer, the New York Police
Gazette, are being sent to residents of
this county in the hope that they will
subscribe' and have the paper for theii
fireside companions during the long
winter months. Why anybody should
pay out good, cold, raw money for such
a repository of stale criminal news,
beastly pictures and prize ring rot is
hard to understand, but occasionally
there turns up a man who, after hav
ing escaped the fool killer, subscribes
for it ly which he satisfies his neigh
bors that he has a disjointed moral sys
tem, in connection with a bad case of
softening of the brain.
In its attempt to explain Mr. Cleve
land's defeat the New York Herald
says: "He kept as his secretary of the
Interior far too long Mr.Lamar, a man
not merely incompetent, but whose
sympathies were so little with the peo
ple and so strongly with the corpora
tions and land monopolists that it re
quired a most extraordinary public ad
monition from the President such as
no cabinet officer ever received in any
country to hold him to his plainest
duty in the important land reform ques
tion." And yet Mr, Cleveland removed this
man, Lamar, from his cabinet to put
him on tiro supreme bench!

Hon. J. B. Burton was interviewed
by a Capital-Commonwealth reporter
at Topeka yesterday. In the course
of the interview he was asked if he
would be a candidate for speaker of
the House. lie replied:
"I do not know. I have thought
but little about the matter. 1 expect
to be absent from the State three or
four weeks and shall not pay any atten
tion to the matter until I return.
Theie is a rumor current that a few
politicians have already decided for ns
who we shall have for speaker. If the
125 members elect decide to ratify the
action of those politicians then of
course it is not necessary for any of us
to be candidates except the one chosen.
How true this rumor is I am not pre
pared to say. Sometimes you know,
however, that a slate is broken, or in
other words that the gentlemen who
do the voting sometimes take a notion
to vote as they please."'
An exchange has the following wise
counsel regarding that unpleasant
malady known as "the blues:"
Mental depression is often the result
of want of brains. A man or woman
lias not intelligence euough to take a
just view of the situation, and to be
content with the lot assigned by cir
cumstances. There is no reason what
ever why a man should not try to im
prove his condition and me ins. J3ut
let him do it calmly, patiently, hopeful
ly, patiently, intelligently. Do not let
him rush at life like a mad bull at u
closed gate and resolve to be through
or ovr at all risks. Any blockhead
can treat life in that way." The man
of intelligence, capacity and convictioi.
can wait as well as work; jsnd if suc
cess equals his expectation he will be
pleaded, but not delirious with pride
and joy. If, on the other hand, the
"sequestered vale of life'' be now and
always his portion, he is able to take
the just measure of worldly success
and to be satisfied and pleased with
his own modest share.
TV. H. Hills, who has made such a
brilliant success of The Writer, an
nounces a new monthly magazine de
voted to literature, criticism etc. It
is sure to be a success in Mr. Hill's
hands. It is called "The Author."
Arthur C. Grissom, of Independence,
Mo., is one of the rising young authors
of the West. Though but twenty years
old his special articles in the Times and
Post-Dispatch are particularly brilliant
and his short stories are accepted
everywhere. He was deservedly hon
ored in being made president of the
Western Authors' and Artists' club.
Kansas has a notable trio of writers
in Tom P. Morgan, Garuett, Will Lis
'nbee, Cherokee, and John H. Whit
son, Hatfield. All make a good living
from fiction and are rapidly rising in
.iterary circles. ,
"Current Literature" is the title of
i new literary magazine, the Xovember
lumber of which is just received. It
is one of the finest additions to a schoi-
ars magizine list that can be imagined.
It contains not only a complete literary
review for the month but careful cull
ing from tho literary contributions
everywhere. It fills a place in tlu-
writer's library not otherwise ocfcupiui
and no one who pretends to have ai
interest in literature can afford to do
without it. Its editorial commeni
gives evidence of high culture and true
literary taste. It costs only $2.50 per
year. Address Current Literature Pub.

"Kobert Elsmere" is the latest liter
ary sensation. Mrs. Humphrey Ward,
the author, is being hailed as a second
George Eliot. The novel is a meta
physical study and an exceedingly
strong work. To keep abreast of mod
ern literature you must read this book,
which will perhaps turn out to be the
greatest work of the year.
"When Age Grows Young," by Hy
land C. Kirk, Chas. T. Dillingham,
publisher, Xew York. Paper, 50 chts.
This romance, which but thinly cov
ers a very perceptible skeleton of phil
osophy and speculation, is in many
respects a good story. The characters
are decide i and somewhat unique and
they play taVir part with naturalness.
The reader feels however, when the
book is completed, as though he had
been beguiled into studying Herbert
spencer or Kant under the guise of a
uovel. The author has some remarka
ble views in regard to perpetuity of
luman life which he hay previously Dut
before the public in essays, etc Hen .

he makes the characters discuss the ,
subject in full. His theory in brief is ,
that the proposition of the specios is
death to the individual and that along
the line of continence and celibacy will
come the discovery of the true manner
of living and the possibility of indefi-
niteiv extending humnii existence.
