Wc believe there is an impression abroad
to that effect.
The Republican expert clerks in the dc
partments at Washington, what fow of
them arc left, have been given to under
stand that if they use their vacation for the

of using it at election time are very much
disturbed over the matter.
Private advices state that Cholera is still
raging fiercely in Corea. No idea can le
formed of the extent of the scourge. It
has more than decimated the capital where
out of a population of 200,000 the death
rate rules ai a frightful average of 1,000 a
day: About as many Corcar.s :is there are
people in the state of California have been
swept away already, and it is hard to say
ween the plague will end. Never was
there a mora frightful record of the nn ages
of disease of mankind. The story of the
plague of London is regarded by what is
now going on in Corea. They a're begin
ning to give over the task of. hurrying the
dead, and the city is threatened with posi
tive extinction. Cores, wc will explain, is
an independent kingdom in eastern Asia
and contains a population of 8,500,000.

O! dread trichinae, tell me now,
Upon what foreign vessel's provr
Came ye? thence into my stomach how'
Did I eat meat that was your due
And now you think it mete that you
Should on my meat damM legions chew?
'Tis plain, ye devils, now. to me,
Why rushed the mad swine in the sea,
That? perished o'er from Galilee.
How comes it thou survived that wetting,
Art here and in our stomach's' getting
To miums such aches, and pains, and fretting?
Did fishes in the briney deep
Eat that mad pork and wildly leap
Ashore, and perish in a heap?
Then hungry swine, unou the plain,
Gorge thosedread devilfishes slain
And were at once "possessed" again J
Then man, poor man, whom Christ released
From devils, prepared a great hog feast
And caught the devil again the beast!
Had I the old sow by the ear
That introduced trichimc here
I'd sea-cure her within ner bier.

WHAT MR. GOUIil) Dili SAY.
Kansas City thinks she will get the jlis
souri Pacific machine shops and general
offices from St. Louis. Gould talked that
way when he was hi Kansas City a few
days ago, the papers say. So what the
Wichita 33AGI.E calls the" "Windy Won
der" is correspondingly happy. As Jay
also visited Wichita on the same trip and
rode in a carriage with the editor of the
Eagle, we advise the public to wait till it
hears from the Eagle before giving entire
credit to the Kansas City papers on this
subject. Emporia Daily Globe.
In face of fhc fact that Chicago is soon
to become the terminus of the Santa Fc
system instead of Kansas City, and the fact
that the Chicago & Hock Island and other
trunk line-!, belonging to the Missouri river
pool, and terminating at Kansas City, are
making energetic preparations to pull out
to the base of supplies, the Kansas City pa
pers are simply seizing upon every little
circumstance to bolster up that town's
waining boom. The Missouri Pacific owns
and controls some very important interests
at the mouth of the Kaw which interests,
3Ir. Gould, as president of that system,
will protect and foster, as would
anv level-headed business man; but
Mr. Gould has no distinctive love for al
place whose-business men and papers, less
than ten days ago, were raising heaven and
eaith to boycott him, simply and solely be
cause that gentleman and .his management,
acting on the logic of event?, and in the
1 ght of developcments and the necessities
of the environments, had recognized the
coining impoitanee of Wichita as a trade
center, and had, therefore, taken steps to
conserve the present and future interests of
fie Missouri Pacific at this point. As Mr.
Gould observed, to the writer, in the dis
cussion of these very matters, "Wichita
backed as she is, by a broader, richer and a
better developed country and surrounded
as Fhc is by a gi eater number of live- and
wmllir nrncnnrnni! inwimllinil Kansas C'ltV
j, now or tiyCr WJIS backed and surrounded
by, Wichita inereiorc nau nouimg to icar
or to court so far as Kansas City or
any other town or city was concerned.
That while he should naturally protect
and foster his interests at Kansas City and
St. Louis, and to the mutual benefit of both
or those towns as well as to the Missouri
Pacific interests, he yel and, nevertheless,
was not blind to the fact that while Wich
ita now reached both Chicago and St. Louis
independently of Kansas City, yet Wichita
would still continue the prominent and
stragctic point fiom which he could and
would not only reach all southwestern
Kansas, but the coal and mines of Colorado
upon the one hand, and the grazing country
and steers of the Texas Panhandle country
upon the other hand.
While wc don't think it just the thing
for the Globe to call out such matters by a
course which really compels us to speak,
nevertheless, the truth as seen net only by
Jlr. Gould, but by many others, may just
as well be told, especially as it works no
wrong to Kansas City or to any other
WICHITA AS A CLEARING HOl'SE.
rri-iii Ihc El Dorado Rimlillcui.
It is but a few years ago when Leaven
worth and Kansas City were the money
centers for all of what was then the settled
poition of Kaneas, but a shoit time elapsed
when Topeka became the clearing house
for the then great southwest. And then it
was but a short time afterwards when Em
poria became the recognised exchange
center of this portion of the state. But
now we have to chronicle another and still
greater change from east to west. The
banks of all southwest Kansas find that it
is better and more convenient to make
Wichita the great clearing house or finan
cial center of this region. Xot only docs
the center of population drift westward,
but the wealth and banking facilities move
We note that some correspondent in the
Kingman Democrat makes a number of
charges against Frank Robcron, the 'Re

There lives in Butler county a young
lady by the name of Hatty Horner, who is
a genuine gifted poet. Miss Horner lias
written verses that must live. Many of
her contributions to the El Dorado Repub
Iican and other papers, possess not only
rhythmic flow and sentiment metrically
expressed, but the soul or inspiration
which is denominated the "divine afflatus."
3Iiss Horner read an original poem before
the Butler County Horticultural society
the other day, descriptive of autumn,
which glowed with many of the fanciful
tints of an October day, closing with a de
scription of an autumnal rain, and the fol
lowing beautiful thought:
Would that my mind wero like the heaven,
Only crossed by the clouds of thought:
Would that my thoughts, like the clouds,

The past season has been an exceptional
one, a very hot and a very dry season with
short harvests of leading crops. Our
farmers will remember the experiences of
the winter which followed a summer like
this a few j'cars ago. Hundreds, wc may
say thousands, of heads of cattle died from
from being turned into the corn fields.
Dry busies and the lack of plenty of water,
salt, etc., had the efTect of destroying many
herds of cattle We have only to suggest
that if those of our farmers who propose
to turn their cattle into the cornstalk fields,
that they see that the cattle have water at
least twice each day and plenty of it, pure,
water. If they fail to do this the Eagle
will be recording disastrous results in a very

The quiet of our city w;is disturbed yes
terday morning by the report that T. II.
Lupton had committed suicide by cutting
his throat. jSTothimr unusual m his ap
pearance had been noticed, lie left the
dlchon and stepped out of the door about
9 o'clock a. m., and in about twenty min
utes his wife went to the cellar and paw
him lying there. She called for help ami
upon examination it was found that his
throat was cut from ear to ear. The cut
measured two and three quarter inches in
depth and four inches across. 1 le has been
melauchoiy since last winter, when he had
an attack of erysipelas.
The coroner came and held an inquest,
and the verdict of the jury was death at his

Garden Plains, Kan., Oct. 10. About
a week ago the members of Mt. Olive Bap
tist church and some dear friends outside
of the church concluded to make a raid on
our pastor, Elder W. W, Dorman, to show
him how much wc appreciated his self-sacrificing
watchcarc over us during his eight
years pastorale with us. So on the morn
ing of the fifteenth, about thirty of us
caihercd our little bundles and went to our
pastor's home, about twelve miles southeast
where we enjoyed the complete surprise of
himself and family in seeing a forty-three
dollar iange carried into the kitchen, on
which we soon had a bountiful dinner pre
paring of which wc partook with thankful
hearts and hungry stomachs. The after
noon passed all to soon, as all pleasant
things do in this world, in music and con
versation, "there being two excellent mu
sicians present.'1 Wc departed leaving our
pastor about fifty dollars better off by our
visit, and we hope feeling more than ever
that he has the love, prayers and sympathy
of his church, as well as the goodwill and
co-operation of this town in his labors here.

Since writing a few days ago, two im
portant events have transpired. The city
council has closed a contraci with Prof. W.
R. Ball, of Michigan, whereby Harper will
have a "Normal school and Business col
lege.' The charter has been filed and the
school v. ill open November 0th, with f-ix
instructors. The city has granted free use
of about $13,000 worth of property, includ
ing the fine city hall building, worth $10,
000 which, with one exception, is the finest
building in the count. In a few days
thousauds of circulars will be sent broad
cast, descriptive of the new institution.
Last Thursday evening a party of dis
tinguished eastern editors were shown
around our city and otherwise entertained.
At night Rotln ell's opera house was
crowded, and a number of entertaining ad
dresses made. The grain display

prominent object being the "golden

serves high praise for the arrangement of
this grain display, which the visitors pro

I cannot close without mentioning the
slight given the members of the press in
this city. After their starting the matte;
and arrousing considerable enthusiasm, not a
single member of the Harper press was
placed on any committee, invited to speak,
or take any part in the reception, and cer
tainly no "town of its size has an abler or
more brilliant cfciss of editors, or more pub
lic spirited and deserving. The editors
themselves took little notice of the insult.
The political pot has beguu to lil and
there is every indication that politics: will
be lively by "the close of the month. The
