SENATOR PLUMB'S VIEWS.
He Has Some Pronounced Opinions on
the Indian Question and Ex
Kansas Citv, Oct. 21. The Globe's
Washington correspondent sends the
following to his paper, here :
The recent publications concerning
the Indian office,, with statements to the
fact that Senator Plumb will introduce a
resolution to investigate the methods
prevailing in the matter of the appoint
ment of teachers in Indian schools, con
tain only a portion of the truth. Senator
Plumb is the aggressive represeutative
mau in Kausas before the departments in
this city and In congress, lie has de
manded just treatment for the schools .in
and contiguous to Kansas, and Commis
sioner Morgan has been 30 unwise as to
r sue a goody-goody New England
policy, fashioned upon the J. Fenimore
Cooper idea of the noble red man,' and
utterly at variauce with practical nowa
day Indian character. Commissioner
Morgan has set himself up as a man pos
sessed of superior knowledge upon In
dian affairs, whereas he is possessed
only of superior power, temporarily, not
Senator Plumb is no more disappointed
with the present administration of the
Indian office than are the other Kansas
men. lie is simply voicing the senti
ments of Senato'r Ingalls and the repre
sentatives when he denounces Commis
sioner Morgan's administration. Dr.
Dorchester, the superintendent of Indian
schools, is a preachy of good character,
high moral ideas, good intentions, and
no practical knowledge of the business.
He is opposed to the Roman Catholic
chinch, and therefore opposed to Roman
Catholics as teachers of the Indians.
Seuator Plumb, when last in Washing
ton, said to your correspondent: "I
know that the Catholic teachers have
doue great good. I know that the trained
men aud women of the Catholic church
are effective for good wherever they go,
and I shall not sit idly by and see them
abused and vilified 'An- more than I
should permit, if I could help it, Jewish
prosecutions in Europe, or the social war
upon the Irish in this country, which
was once typified in the tropical song,
4No Irish Need Apply. The Catholics
are among our best citizens, and their
teachers are among our best teachers.
The present administration of the Indian
office has turned our Haskell institute
topsy turvy, and the state of Kansas,
generally, has been ignored and ill
treated in other ways.
From what I know of Senator PlHmb,
as a public man, I wouldn't give one cent
ou a dollar for Commissioner Morgan's
chanees of confirmation next winter, and
if bets were going, I'shold give long odds
that Dr. Dorchester will not be drawing
a government salary three months hence.
Hon. R. V. Belt, assistaut commis
sioner of Indian affairs, has had years of
experience in the Indian office aud
knows it ly heart. He has protested
against the policy of CommissionerMor
gan and of Dr. Dorchester, but those in
experienced gentlemen have fanatically
refused tolisten to the words of wisdom
Ii'nd experience, and therefore they have
gotten the service into a muddle and
themselves into a pretty kettle of fish.
Mr. Belt was put there as assistant com
missioner in order to steer the business
aright; but his splendid abilities have
been ignored and he is silent.
How They Speak-of the New Register.
Ulysc-. Tribune: C. F. M. Niles. reg
ister of the U. S. land office at Garden
City, has resigned, and Hon r ai
Frost, of Dodge City, has been appoin
ted in his stead. This appointment is
regarded by all as a most excellent one.
Garden City Imprint: D. M. Frost, of
Dodge City, has been appointed register
of the Garden City land office at last, the
gun hung fire for a loug time but finally
went off, we are glad to say.
Syracuse Journal : Hon. D. M. Frost,
who succeeds C. F. M. Niles as register
of the Garden City land office, formerly
resided in this county, and in 1872-73
was postmaster at Sarent, now Cool
idge, which was at that'time the termi
nal point of the Santa Fe. He after
wards removed to Dodge City, Ford
county, and began the publication of the
Globe newspaper, which he discontin
ued about a vear aeo. Mr. Frost rpnr-
sented Ford county in the Legislature
ior one term, ana nas always been an
active worker in the republican party.
He is eminentlv well Qualified for thn
position to which he has been appointed.
He and Mr. Taylor will pull well togeth
er, and under their control the affairs of
the Garden City land office will be ably
anu uonesny conducted.
J. W. Gregory, of the Garden City
Sentinel, in speaking of the new ap
pointee says : ''Hon. D. M. Frost, the
new appointee is a southwestern Kansas
pioneer, a veteran editor and tried re
publican. He has resided at Dodge Citv
for fifteen years or more and by his work
as a Kansan and an editor has well
earned his appointment."
Harti'und Herald: Hon. D. M. Frost
has been appointed register of the Gar
den City land oflice. This is quite an
houor to Mr. Frost for the reason that he
is the only republican office seeker iu the
state but what Beu has objected to.
When Sam Peters was asking for the ap
pointment of Mr. Frost, the president
asked him where this mau Frost lived.
Mr. Peters replied that he had lived iu
Dodge City for ten or fifteen years. Oh !
said the president, so long as he is from
Dodge City he must be all O. K., I shall
appoint him, and so he did.
Lamed Eagle-Optic: Hon. D. M.
Frost, of Dodge City, has been appoin
ted register of the Garden City land
office. The appointment will rellect
credit upon the administration, as it is
one of the best that could have been
Garden City Herald, Oct. lo'tb. 1SS9:
The news was received last evening of
the appointment of D. M. Frost, of
Dodge City, to the positiou of register iu
the laud office to succeed C. F. M. Niles.
Mr. Frost is au old settler iu western
Kansas, a staunch republican iu fact he
is one of the wheel horses of the repub
lican party in this part of the state, and
his selection will give general satisfac
tion. His claims for this position have
been pushed by numerous friends, who
naturally feel elated at his success.
The Globe-Democrat in speaking of
the laud office appointment made on the
14th inst. says: A change was also
made to-day iu the office of register at
the Garden City (Kan.) laud office. D.
M. Frost was appointed to succeed Chas.
F.M. Niles. The latter, who is a Demo
crat, was appointed November 12, 1SS5,
and his term of four years has not quite
expired. Mr. Frost's appointment was
agreed upon some months ago, "but the
matter has been delayed in the hope that
Register Niles would resign, this he
neglected to do. and he has accordingly
been removed. The republican receiver
for this office was appointed last July.
Samuel Thanhousei. the Democrat, very
promptly tendered his resignation it
was accepted, and Jesse Taylor was ap
pointed. The new register. Mr.. Frdst.
is a resident of Dodge City, and iV pub
lisher of the Weekly Globe."
Meade County Globe: Hon. D. M.
Frost, of Dodge City, formerly editor of
the Live Stock Journal has been appoin
ted register of the U. S. land office at
Garden City. Mr. Frost is au old poli
tician aud the appointment is received
with general favor in the district.
Ford Gazette: C. F. 31. Niles, regis
ter of the Garden City land district
office, has resigned. D. M. Frost of
Dodge City, will probably be selected to
fill the position. Should Mr. Frost be
nominated for the position, Ford county
people will be pleased, for they recog
nize him to be an able, true republican.
Vestibule Trains to Chicago.
The Vestibule train is a new factor in
western railroad transportation. It is
claimed for these trains that on account
of their being connected by steel hoods
all danger of telescoping in case of acci
dent is removed, the train being practical
ly one loug car. It is certain that the
oscillation of the cars is greatly reduced,
and it is also certain that the vestibule
trains afford the greatest comfort yet
known to travelers. The adoption of
this style of train by the Chicago, Santa
Fe & California Railway between Kansas
City and Chicago is a strong bid for the
passenger trafiie betw eeu the west and
Chicago. This new road is in many
particulars ahead of any of its older
competitors, and willundouoteuiy oe tue
popular road to Chicago.
A LURKING DANGER.
How to Prevent Many Dysenteries mnd
Every disease for which the physi
cians can not satisfactorily account in
certain localities is explained by the
magical word malaria, and the patient
suffers and is weak till the develop
ment of fuller symptoms affords oppor
tunity for further diagnosis and a new
nomenclature. There seem to be, how
ever, few diseases which the state of
the system, under the influence of ma
laria, can not counterfeit, and it is a
relief to many a sufferer to know, after
having been tormented by apprehen
sion of something terrible, that it is
not heart failure, or brain trouble, or
cancerous stomach, or indurated liver,
but only a little malaria that occa
sions the suffering, quite unaware that
a little malaria incapable of being as
baleful as any one of all the others, in
filtrating its slow poison, and prepar
ing the way for its victims to fail easy
prey to a thousand ills, all of which
might have been resisted but for the
vitiation of the natural forces by this
subtle' power of evil.
Not only in the positive and visible
agencies of fever and chills are the
effects of malaria apparent, but wher
ever it is present sallow faces, impov
erished muscles, undersized stature,
poor teeth, and thin hair, languor and
absence of ambition and energy, are
noticeable; and if ever any great un
dertakings are compassed in malarious
regions, it is by means of people com
ing in from the outside and doing the
work before succumbing to the be
numbing influence, or else by individ
uals who are what gardeners call
"sports" upon the prevailing variety.
What there is in a water-soaked weed,
drying under a hot sun, to evolve such
terrible injury to humanity is for
science yet to find out. But that there
is deadly power in all vegetation that
has been saturated and then exposed
to great heat is certain: and it is also
certain that sometimes the pestiferous
effluence is felt the most by people on
low levels, at other times, under dif
ferent conditions, by those dwelling on
hills at a distance of some miles from
the malarial source, and that some
times a grove of trees or a town acts
as a filter or a screen, and prevents the
poison from penetrating further.
While what has been long known as
malaria, meaning merely fever and
ague, is confined chiefly to the low
latitudes and to fixed localities of al
luvial deposit elsewhere, yet there is a
notable development of malaria in all
places where vegetable growth under
goes exposure and decay, thus produc
ing not only the common illnesses pro
ceeding from 'malarious miasms, but
fatal fevers of many sorts. It becomes
every one, therefore, even in our own
comparatively safe regions, to take
two or three measures of precaution
that have been discovered to be of use.
Omitting, of course, purely medical
precautions, which are in the hands of
physicians to prescribe, the first of
these is a thorough system of drainage
wherever there are swamps or marsh
lands within three or four miles of
dwellings, that being the limit to
which the malarial poison can be car
ried by the wind, and the planting of
a thick growth of trees to intervene
between houses and the danger, to act
as a shield and screen and absorbent
in places where the drainage is not
possible or the danger not to be re
moved. Another is never to sleep on
the lower floor of rooms where there is
any suspicion of the existence of mala
ria. Another is to use great caution
against the night air when not in mo
tion, the poison being most active aft
er dark, when the sun has withdrawn
from us and from the world about us
his disease-repelling forces, a caution
which forbids in mild autumn even
ings much sitting about the lawns or
Hngering around the door-steps, and
which advises a little wood firo upon the
hearth. Many dysenteries and blow
fevers might thus be prevented, which.
while they may not in themselves be
directlRTatal, lead the way, through
weakness and a lowering of the tone of
the system, to diseases which' know no
recovery.' Harper's Bazar.
Wonders in a Ton of Coal.
There is more in a ton of coal than
most people are aware of. Besides
gases a ton of coal will yield 1,500
pounds of coke, 20 gallons of ammonia
water, and 140 pounds of coal tar. De
structive distillation of the coal tar
gives 69.9 pounds ot pitch, 17 pounds
creosote, 14 pounds of heavy oils, 9.5
pounds of naptha yellow, 6.3 pounds
naphthaline. 4.75 pounds of naphthoic,
2.25 pounds of alizaran, 2.4 pounds
solvent naphtha, 1.5 pounds of
phenol, 1.2 pounds of aurline, 1.1
pounds of aniline, 0.77 pound of
toludine, 0.46 pound of anthracine and
0.9 pound of tolune. From the last

discovered product saccharine, which
is said to be 223 sweeter than sugar.

TWO NOBLE BROTHERS.
Both reriah In Heroic Attempts to Sav
Several years ago in the western
part of Snyder County a large gang of
men were raisin? a barn. A number
Of them were pushing up a heavy piece
of timber (vertically; to be placed
horizontally along where the eaves
would be. When the one end was
about halfway above the height of the
eaves the object was to swing it care

weighing two hundred pounds, was
standing at the end of the barn on the
upper log. When the timber was al
most ready to be swung into position
the scaffolding upon which the men at
the lower end stood gave way. and
every thing being wet and slippery
from a recent rain the upper end slid
around and struck Albion. He being
very quick caught at the moving piece
of timber, which soou fastened itself as
a temporary cross beam.
Albion was suspended from the log
by his arms, eight feet from the barn
and twenty-live feet from the ground.
He was so disabled from the jar that
he could neither get into the barn nor
hold himself long. On the ground near
by his brother Harry and another man
were working. Seeing Albion in this
predicament, they ran to his assistance
and wanted to catch him. "Go away
and let me die if I must; you shall not
risk your life for mine." said he to his
brother. ''All right," responded Harry
and at the same time he motioned to
his companion to assist him in catch
Not over two feet behind Harry was
a newly dug well, thirty-five feet deep.
He looked into this, fully realizing his
dangerous situation, and then turned
his eyes toward Albion. The latter,
not being able to hold himself any
longer, began his descent. ! must, I

his arms and two of his ribs. After
looking about him and realizing the
situation he quickly fastened the one
end of a long rope to a tree near by

well, down which he began his descent
with one arm, while the pains of his
bruises and mutilated body were almost
unendurable. Notwithstanding the
pain he descended the rope to the sur
face of the water, which was eight feet
deep. He plunged in to rescue his
brother, but alas! was unable to swim

How They are Made in the Mountain Dis
trict of Ilolit-iul;..
It may, perhaps, interest renders to
know tome of the secrets of cheap
glove-making. My facts relate to Bo
hemia, from which country many cheap
gloves are imported. Before the intro
duction of the glove sewing machine,
which took place about 1870, a simple
apparatus was in use consisting of two
brass plates, in which the stitches were
incised, holding tightly together the
leather parts of the glove, while Iho
needle of the sewer followed easily
these incised stitches. It was an eay
work, not at all injurious to body or
eye. and an industrious and quiet girl
could, without any exertion, sew two
pairs of gloves a day. for which sho
received from 2 pence to 3 pence each,
equal to about 5 pence to 6 pence a day.
Very poor wages. But the money was
earned in a comfortable way.
Let us now compare what progress
these girls made in the golden era of
machinery. The poor sewers aro
never in a position to acquire the
requisite sum to be owners of these
machines. The district to which I
'refer is a poor, mountainous part,
the men mostly miners of an imperial
silver mine, with daily wages of 16
pence. The requisite machines aro
owned by middlemen, called factors, to
whom the glove manufacturers from
all parts of Austria send their unfin
ished gloves for sewing. These factors
are proprietors of a certain number of
machines from twenty upwards to a
hundred which are fitted up in work
rooms, most of them verv indifferently
suited for the purpose. The poor girls
from the neighboring district have
often to walk a distance of eight miles
to find work in such workrooms. They
leave their miserable cottages at 4
a. m. to begin their day's work at 6
ju m. After a hard labor of twelve
hours on a most complicated machine,
and after having passed another two
hours on their way home, their whole
earning consists of 7 pence. Including
the hours she loses on the road, sho
works ninety six hours a week for 3
shillings 6 pence, her body continually
bent over a most complicated machine,
her eyes watching leather, thread, and
needle incessantly, her foot moving
continually, amid the rattle of many
machine, in a most sickly atmosphere.
This is how cheap gloves are made.
