PROTECTION, EAST AND WEST.
The present unfortunate circumstances of
the people of Western Kansas have opened
their eves to the injustico done them in
tho distribution of military and political
favors. Eastern Kansas has grasped at
everything which might aid her in retaining
power, regnrdlead of the wants or welfare
uf the spnr'-ely mottled counties. Western
Ivans-as is now ta&tiog bitter fruits of her
aiwa)s outgushing loyalty in sending men
to tho Geld. Her people arc now fleeing
from their homes, leaving many of their
neighbors bleaching benoith tho sun, the
victims of the scalping knife and tomahawk.
Wo speak ouly of tho present. For
three) ears the people of Eastern Kansas
have suffered untold annoyance aud barbar
ities at the hands of white savages. Dur
ing these years of trouble Western Kansas
has sent her sons to the defence of the
border until she is now without help suffi
eient to carry on the ordinary pursuits of
life. It is tho supremo selfishness which
manifests itself just at present, that is
keenly touching our people. For two
months the scalping knife has been at work,
and yet not a voice or a hand has been
raised by Eastern Kansas in our defence.
On the contrary, Lawrenco is grasping for
more troops, seemingly unconscious of any
need for them elsewhere. Our Governor,
when a citizen of Johnson county is put in
the field to defend his own property, be
eomos alarmed about that militia man's
liberties and goes off into a correspondence,
ostensibly to defend bis people, but in
reality to show what an ass he is; while a
man's scalp out West hero can be taken
and not cause a scratch of the Executive
Lawrence has four or five hundred troops,
one batterv and two seiee guns. Besides
this garrison, she has eight hundred or a
thousnnd able-bodied citizens, and five hun
dred negroes. Carney's villainous con-
cription took twenty-nino men from this
neighborhood, and we scarce knew they
were gone until we heard tbey were guard
ing Lawrence. To our mind, the defence
of Lawrence is becoming an imposition upon
the State at large. It is a useless disposi
lion of troops, which leads ns to believe
that the massacre of one year ago has now
assumed the character of a huge speculation.
Let ns have three hundred of those troops
on the Solomon and Saline, that jutiee
nay be done all parts.

The Leavenworth Times of the 23d inst.,
publishes a call for a State Convention to
meet on the 13th of September, at Topeka,
for the purpose of nominating State officers.
It is not our purpose to discuss the question
as to the right of issuing such a call, ex
cept so far as to strip off its pretences, and
show the thin veiled treachery which lurks
The call professes to emanate from the
Republican State Central Committee. Who
is the Republican Committee, and where
the party it pretends to represent ? A lit
tie piece of history will straighten out the
knots purposely woven into the logic of the
The Republican party was orgaoized at
Philadelphia, June 18tb, 1856. With
John C. Fremont as its Presidential candi
date ic was defeated at the following elec
tion. That defeat was, however, an augury
of future triumph. It worked earnestly.
In the summer of 1859, the Free State
men of Kansas, then a Territory, organized
themselves into a Republican party, to act
with the National organization. When the
National Republican Convention of i860
met at Chicago, and nominated Abraham
Lincoln, of Illinois, Kansas was there by
her delegates and united heartily in the
choice. Of course a National Central
Committee was appointed. WILLIAM A.
Phillips was the representative of Kansas
thereon, lie remained a member till after
the reorganization at the late National Con
vention which assembled at Baltimore.
Kansas was represented in that Convention,
and her delegates were active and earnest,
as were her people in favoring the re-nomination
of Abraham Lincoln.
Let it be remembered, then, that Colonel
Wm. A. Phillips, acting by proxy in the
hands, we believe, of Senator Morgan, of
New York, heartily acquiesced in the call
for a National Union, not Republican Con
vention, simply, and that in the accounts,
published in the Leavenworth Times itself,
of a meeting held at Fort Gibson, C. N.,
where Col. Phillips commanded, that that
officer, in a speech then made, heartily en
dorsed the rc-nouiniuion of Abraham Lin
coln, and tho action of the Baltimore Con
vention, whereby the National Republican
organization was abandoned, and a new title
given that of the National Union Party
to that organization which embracing the
vast majority of all lojal oitizens seeks to
embody in results the broader principles
and more vital issues of the present.
Thero is no such organization to-day,
either in Kansas or the Union, as that for
merly known as the Republican Party. By
the hearty consent of those who composed
it, it has been abandoned. Everywhere the
people of this State has indorsed the action
of the Baltimore Convention. The Times
itself hoists the names of tho Presidential
nominees of that Convention. By that act
it acquiesced in the party changes there ef
What then means this call for a Repub
lican State Convention, signed in the name
of a Republican Committee ?
It is a lie, a fraud, a sham upon its face.
The Secretary of the Republican Central
Committee is a myth. There is no such
personage thero is no such Committee.
True, S. F. Atwood is a well known indi
vidual better known politically for his
bolting capacity than for any other trait.
In whose name aod by whose authority
does he call such a State Convention ? We
know what he pretends to. But wo desire
to know what members of the late Repub
lican Central Committee join in this bogus
call. We know that a majority thereof are
fellowship with the National Union par
ty, and its party mouth piece the State
Central Committee, who call the Conven
tion of September 8th. Let us have the
names of those, who belonging to the for
mer Committee, have authorized the issuing
of this call. From our knowledge of the
mtn Atwood we do not believe any but
himself, and Bishop Vaughn, etc, have had
to do with the .thing. The Times will
please reply to another question. How
does it come that pretending to favor the
re-election of Abraham Lincoln, it issues
and indorses a call for a State Convention,
so peculiarly worded in its failure to men
tion that as one of the purposes sought, as
to convince all who read the same -that it
emanates from those opposed to the 'said re
election I v i -- I r r.sm
The loyal and radical 'Unionists of Kan
sas are not to be caught ia sse tiap.
They are for Abraham linoohY aoMhe
party atKhwcn-who'without eqlvocatjor
evasion desire to sec him President for the
ensuing four years.
The Times and its cronies are purely and
simply factional. They are animated by
only one idea and that is to defeat a man
they hate. They do not prove him to have
been unfaithful to his public trust ; and
the accusations they bring have mainly re
suited in their own conviction as slanderers
and liars. Men whose only guide in publio
life is their personal hatreds or partizan
malice are easily led by their selfish passions
into moral or political treason. There are
men in this State so demented with their
personal hatred that they are ripe to destroy
any moyement and commit treason against
principles life-long advocated, if thereby
they can injure the object of their animosi
ty. Such a man is the present editor of
the Times; and such only is the motive
which animates those calling the Bogus
Convention. . w
Its results, if successful, will be to defeat
the National Union nominations, and to aid
by a division of the loyal strength in Kan
sas, the elevation of the 0. A. K. Peace
Democracy into power throughout the Na
tion. Are we prepared for this ? Are the
good men, who the Times seeks to ue,
ready to be made the footballs for traitors,
to gratify malice and support the moral and
political corruption which rules the columns
of tho Times? We trow not.
The County Convention which meets
next Saturday, aod the State Convention
which meets on the eighth of September,
are of the utmost importance. Every vo
ter, approving their object and policy should
attend and tnke part in all the primary
meetings. It is time the people of Western
Kansas were looking exclusively to their
local interests. This has been the policy
which ha? governs the East. Let the
West and the Neosho Valley go to that
Convention with a united delegation We
want to try the West in Gubernatorial
harness. We are confident we cannot pro
duce such a consummate jackass as the
present incumbent, nor one so utterly use
less for all common purposes. Our railroad
interests urge us to make such a demand.
Western Kansas has thus far been wholly
ignored. With the power of that position
in our interest, wo believe the construction
of the railroad west could be aided greatly.
And then, too, the conspirators of last
winter are laying the wires for another
cheat. It is plain as noonday that they
are not true friends of Lincoln and John
son. They have assumed to call another
Convention, and propose nominating Elec
tors and a full ticket. Their evident inten
tion is to sell out Lincoln and Johnson.
It behooves the people to look to this matter
in the start.
We find the following notice of oar Con
gressman in the Rochester, New York,
Democrat. It is a well-deserved compli
ment. We doubt the policy of sending a
new man to Congress every session. When
we get a good thing let na stick to it :
" Mr, Wilder was one of the most valu
able members fron the West in the 38th
Congress. Always vigilant and industrious.
he never betrayed his constituents and
never dodged a vote. Honest and fearless,
he never voted on the wrong side, but was
always found in the van of those who gave
all their influence to the maintenance of
the government, and the suppression of
treason, lie never coquetted wun copper
heads, and never counselled with soreheads.
Tho people of his district should deliberate
long before they conclude tof 9Pen?e,th
bis services, for we greatly doubt if they
can find a truer or worthier representative."

Two companies of the Marshal county

under commaud of Mbj. John D. Wells.
Major Wells reports that Capt. Murphy, of
the U. S. V., 7th Iowa Cavalry, with one
piece of artillery, and a company of the
militia, had a fight with the Indians Sious
and Cheyenoes 12 miles from Little Blue

was killed while be aud some of tho soldiers
were trying to get some of the cattle from
the Indians, which the Indians were herd
ing, having stampeded them from the train
last week three hundred and forty in all.
The fight took place on Tuesday, the
I6th inst. The soldiers and militia fought
them for four hours, and finally had to re
treat and leave the redskins. Capt. Mur
phy returned to Fort Kearney, and the mi
litia returned home, not being able to com
pete with so large a foe. About 500 Indi
ans, led by white men, were engaged, but
a much larger number were seen at a dis
tance. Their number at that place has
been estimated at from 5,000 to 8,000.
The Indians have a provision train, and
are mounted on the fleetest horses that trav
el the plains, and those in the engagement
of Tuesday were well armed with rifles.
The cavalry oould not use their revolvers,
owing to their long range of fire, and the
Indians had guns of longer range than
either the U. S. soldiers or the militia.
The mountain howitzers became disabled
after the first fire. Cot. Conservative.

The Wants of Kansas Farmers.
Correspondence of the Leav. Conservative.
Kansas has one of tho most dcligbful
climates as well as tho moat productive soil
of any of our States, and with proper leg
islation to protect the farmer from the rav
ages of fire, would bo one of the wealthiest
States in tho Union. There is no new
State or Territory which holds out greater
inducements to the poor man. The want
of timber in some localities is one of the
greatest drawbacks, together with the fire
which sweeps over our broad plains every
fall, burning fences and other property and
not unfrequently destroying life. As to
the scarcity of timber the farmer could soon
overcome it, if by proper legislation we
could be protected against fire. 1 propose
to give your readers a practical mode to
overoome this great ovil by legislation, and
thereby save thousands of dollars to the
farmers of Kansas everyyear.
lstv Let every man bgloinpelled by law
to break a strip around bis farm of one
hundred and Bixty acres, one rod wide. In
other words, require by law that each quar
ter section shall nave a strip one rod around
it or next to the line broke. This will give
a strip between each and every quarter sec
tion of two rods. -
2d. Require that the breaking be done
in May and June.
3d. Let the'owner of the land have the
privilege of. breaking around his land, pro
vided he does it in May.
4th. Have the commissioners of each
county cause all tho land not broke: (s pro?
vided in section 1st aud 3d), to be broke
in June, and tax the same to each quarter
section and collect the 6ame as other tsxes
5th. nave all personal property found
on the land Dy persons living on me same,
where the land has not been entered yet,
be subject to said tax.
6th. Have the law passed the coming
winter and enforced next May and June.
And now, 'Mr.'JBditor, should" you see
proper to give this a notice in your able
paper, and call the attention of the press
generally to it, and also those public speak
ers who canvass our State this fall, and this
law may pass this winter. It will be ono
of the greatest blessings ever conferred up
on the farmers of Kansas. We would not
then witness whole farms laid waste and
