The election iu Virginia yesterday pre
sents a. rather novel feature for these days
of partisan politics.
Messrs. D. Lothrop & Co. arc now pre
paring their large issues of their delightful
annual volumes of "Wide Awake, The
Pansy. Our Little Men and "Women and
Bahyland, of which an extended review
will be given later in our columns. The
announcement of this enterprising firm for
the holidn' season comprise many choice
and valuable books for readers of all ages,
from picture books for little two-year-olds
up to grandfather's solid works. Their as
sortment of sets is also very complete, and
their gift books for the Christmas season
are especially rich and beautiful. D. Loth
rop & Co.'s line of juvenile publications is
unsurpassed. A catalogue of all their pub
lications will be supplied by our booksell
ers, free, on application.
The authorities will make a grave mis
take if, through Sam "Wood's maneuvers,
Stevens county is disorganized. There is
no doubt that the required number 6f peo
ple are there with sufiicicnl taxable prop
erty, and, to spare, to entitle the county to
an organization of its own.
Upon his nomination for rc-elcctiou as
representative to the legislature, Hon. Ro
dolph Hatfield received the following high
ly complimentary letter from Governor
Martin, of which Mr. R. has kindly con
sented to furnish the Eagle a copy:
State ok Kansas, Executive Dep't., )
Topeka, Sept. C, 1SSG. j"
My Dear Hatfield.
I heartily congratulate you on your de
served rcnomination. The Republicans of
Wichita are to be congratulated, no less
heartily, on the good judgment they have
exhibited iu giving you a rcnomina
tion by acclamation. A great and pros
perous city ought to be represented in the
legislature of the state by a mau who dem
onstrated his ability, integrity and useful
ness, and this, as I am sure all your col
leagues will testify, you did during the lat
sessions of 1SS 3 and 18SG.
Yours very truly,
John A. Martin.
The fact has been alluded to before by
this paper but the fight being made by the
Democratic papers on Governor Martin's
military record and life is such a strained
and contemptible one that it is hard for
those who have known Governor Martin
since his youth to remain silent. However
successful Governor Martin may have
proved as an editorial writer, and the solid
ity of his work iu that direction has never
been question, still, and nevertheless, the
name he achieved as the boy-colonel from
Kansas, the fame he won as a soldier and
commander have been not only the particu
lar gratification of his friends, but from
what we know of the man we believe that
such achievements and fame are his special
pride. Then how foolish the fight bein,
made bv these Democrats, not one in a
hundred of whom were in the army them
selves, and not one in a thousand of whom
were residents of Kansas during the war.
If Governor Martin has a right to be
more proud of any one thing than another
among the many tilings which go to make
up his honorable life, it is his military rec
ord, that very portion of his life against
which such a pusilanimous fight is being
made. And that pride which is so univer
sally shared by his friends rests on a found
ation as solid and undefaceabie as the rock
of Gibralter, either as the colonel of his
regiment or the commander of his brigade.
From the time he was mustered in 1861 un
til the end of the war he was never absent
from his command for more than thirty-
five days all told, and was never absent
from it during a single battle or skirmish.
He commanded his regiment during the
Buell campaign, and in the battles of Perry
ville and Lancaster, in the campaign against
Tullahoma, the campaign against Chatta
nooga, the battles of Chicamaugua, the
siege of Chattanooga, the storming of Miss
ion Iiidge, the battle at Orchard Knob, the
campaign to Knoxville, the long campaign
against Atlanta, and the subsequent pur
suit of nood, including the battles of Kene-
saw .Mountain, the faniyrna L-amp, tne
Chattahoochee, Peach Tree creek, Atlanta
and at Snake Creek Gap.
In other words, in looking up the record
of his command, Ave find Governor Martin
heading it in eighteen campaigns and bat
tles. "When the mean whelps who, solely
for a partisan advantage, so deliberately lie
about such a record as that of Governor
Martin's, and all for the purpose of mis
leading people who arc new to the state, we
are almost forced to the conclusion that
there is nothing the Democratic party will
not do ta gain an advantage.
No ex-soldier citizen of Kansas, what
ever he may have been, however high or
low his rank, or however long he may
have continued in service, can show a
more honorable, patriotic and consistently
loyal record than that of Governor John A.
favor in the tenth inning, notwithstanding
the winning nine was scored on the bat of

Mr. Sullivan, the manager of the Enter
prise Publishing company, who is getting
up a review of Deliver, writes us f i om that
city that there is no such life or boom in
that ctiy as is enjoyed by Wichita. Chica

the west where Wichita life can be duplicated.
KANSAS STATE MILITIA.
The Second Annul Encampment of the Kansas
National Guard, at Fort Riley.
Engineer II. L. ,lack.on, wlio h:us just
been over the proposed line of the Midland
railway says for the fir.t one hundred
miles he thinks it will be the easiest line
constructed that he ever had anything to do
with, lie did not find over six miles over
which there would be the least trouble,
and that six six miles is not worse than- the
average Kansas grade. The people of
Rice and Ellsworth counties are paiticu
larly wide awake as to the advantages of a
connection with Wichita. They say that
Wichita will undoubtedly bo their future
hog, grain and cattle market, and their de
sire to reach such market at the earliest
d ay is a laudable one to say the least. Ells
worth on the U. P., will be one hundred
and forty miles nearer Wichita than Kan
sas City. Even Jewell county, in the
northern tier of the state, will be nearer
Wicl:4ta than Kansas City, or even nearer
Wichita thau Atchison or St. Joseph.
To tho Editor of the Eagle.
I thought the request of our honorable
trustee J 7 C. Davis superintended a gang of
men sent into this township by the St.
Louis and San Francisco Railroad Co., to
work out road tax. I found it had become
a science with them to get in their time
with the least possible work.
I wish to kuow whether we are com
pelled to receive this tax in this wav or
Can not said tax be paid into the treasury
and our own citizens and tax payers hirori
to do this labor? The money would not
then be paid to strangers to be carried
away out of the county or perhaps out of
the !?tatc. E. N. Winders.
Wc are not sufficiently posted to proper
ly answer the forgoing; at least we kuow
nothing of how the railroads pay their road
taxes. It is our observation that a large
per cent of tax payers dodge their road tax
or give a very poor equivalent for it. If 1
the railroads work it out or pay for its
working out it strikes us that they arc mak
ing a pretty fair average of it. Ed.
To the Editor of the Eagle.
Peace and contentment reiijns in this lit
tle city by the waters. Perhaps in the re
gion of some drnir house this may not be
so, as it is rumored that some permits
have been cancelled.
What is it in the Wichita water that so
effects some Augustans when they visit
that metropolis to attend cicusesand K. of
L. demonstrations. Its effects arc very
similar to the ancient influences of beer
garden surroundings, Either your system
of water supply must be improved or big
circus and K. of L. parades be transferred
to the precincts of purer water supply, or
some Augustans must be kept at home, or
else wc must "tell on them."
Today the Banner hotel on rollers departs
for Santa Fe street to give place to a new
and more imposing structure. One by one
the old laud marks depart but the general
verdict is, "Let 'er go in peace," or iu
pieces, just as the occasion may require.
The Catholics arc rapidly constructing a
new "parsonage" or "priestage" (which is
it?) on their beautiful grounds in this city
near their church.
Health continues good, doctors despond

Our school is "abundantly full'' that is
of "kids." It is said that two additional
teachers will be employed in addition to
the seven already employed.
It is the correct style here for attornies to
t at c afternoon lunch with the wife in their
office while their "kids" and "kidesscss"
run bareheaded and barefooted and hello-bc-iear
over the commons; whether well-fed or
not "Zckc" can't say. now's that for style?
Wichita pettifoggers take note and if the
"punk" isn't all out of them they might
in their suburban retreat, imitate our
metropolitan "airs," but let them be
informed, that Augusta "Blackstones" are
gentry of no mean pretensions, and compe
tent to set patterns in "airs." Whew!
Just gently intrude yourself so as to slacken
our pace. In other words, "head us off."
We can't boast of so many new railroad en
terprises as you Wichita fellows blow
about, but our lawyers can down yours for
style, and we dare you to dispute it. Yes,
and our doctors and business men have
more pluck "in 'em" too, but it costs them
a trip up to the captain s office for instruc
tions and he charges them $4.7o for the in
terview. But then it keeps money circu
latiw; you know, aud that suits the Green
backers and K's. of L., and the druggists

were made happy, except the poor grocery
