Wont the people'-, endorsement of Mr.

well as one over our own proper signature

The Democrats have taken up the incom
petent howl raised by the Beacon against
Jones. The same howl wa3 run by the
Democrats against Judge Wall when he
ran for the same place, and the same cry
was raised against Sitiss.
The majority for the Republican ticket
hi Sedgwick county will run, on an aver
age, from eight hundred to a thousand.
Refer to these figures next Wednesday
morning and you will find wo have put the
average a little low even.
Hold on Murdock! Before trying to w in
the good opinion of the celestial gate
keeper, by such abuse of the poor over
worked typo, would it not be more to your
credit to comb the proof reader's head with
a stuffed club occasionally? Try it.--Ster-ling
In which event our own pate would call
for protection, and often.
President Cleveland docs not generally
give tips to his servants, but the New
York Tribune relates that while in the
Adirondacks he gave a nickle to a boy who
brushed his clothes. The latter, having
expected at least a quarter from such an
exalted personage, looked in astonishment
from the five cent piece in his hand, and
then slowly said: "Perhaps yon think I
oaino up here for my health."
Think of trusting millions of property
and the interests of 45,000 people with a
man, who, as a candidate for county attor
ney hasn't been here long enough to bound
the county with his eyes shut. Proposter
ous. The-"broad individual distinction,"
to say nothing of the "political distinction"
leaves but one answer possible. Jones'
election will be practically unauiraous.
There should be no doubt about the
election of Thcs. Randall as Commissioner
in the Third District. There is not much
politics in the election of a County Com
missioner, one might s.vv, but the Republi
cans of the Distridt ought to mako it a
matter of pride to elect Mr. Randall, be
cause he is the best man and it is certain
ly no disadvantage that he is also a Rcptib
can. We arc informed that a delegation com
posed of the chairman of the central com
mittee waited on Col. Murdock yesterday,
and made a demand that he coine out of
Ids hole and come to the rescue of Jones.
When did one man get to be a delega
tion? That stj-lc of a racket may do for a
party in which tio make a procession;
but, we have a thousand dollars which
says, that nobody ever ga e any such in
formation, and for the simple reason that
it didn't occur and therefore they couldn't.
The Commonwealth advised the State
Republican central committee to take up,
pass upon, and settle the muddle in the
Fifth district. The Eagle advised the
AnH.nltHAn UaI Z 1Al.l 1 nrt it J 4lffmr2
burnt if it did anything of the sort. The
committee at last took action, and it
amounted to about as much as the squeak
of a mouse ;o far as it had any effect on
the Republicans of the Fifth district. If
the Republicans of Shunganuuga township,
Shawnee county, should happen to become
involved in a misunderstanding over the
proposition of who was the regular nomi
nee for road overseer, the state central com
mittee could do justas mucli and no more,
to settle the matter than their action
amounted to in the Fifth district a sneer
and a laugh
THE BEACON'S OX.
The Eagle has been sliding along
smoothly In this campaign, with only good,
honest words for the niminecs of the Re
publican party and not a single personal
epithet or personal detraction for a single
man on the Democratic local ticket. The
Eagle has been pinning its fath to the
good sense of the people. Notwithstand
ing our course there has been ran a reg
ular muck against the good names of some
of our Republican candidates, and by men
who have been but a short time in the
county, yet who have vilely abused and
slandered men whom the people have
trusted and honored for years before these
slanderers ever thought of putting in an
appearance in this valley. The Beacon
ulsolia3 not only belittled our candidates
bsit publicly insulted the Republicans of
this county by asking the editor of the
Eagle to come out over his own signature
and attest the competency of men whom the
party had selected and nominated because
of their special fitness. To give the reek
concern a mere taste of its own medicine
we yesterday morning advised that paper
to enlighten the people as to the antece
of a man on the Democratic ticket, a new
man whom very few people know and who
up to the time of his nomination fewer had
ever heard of. "Wc charged nothing, as
serted nothing, but simply asked for such
information as would enable us to properly
size up Mr. Conly with Mr. Jones. "What
have we for a result of a little of its own
tactics? What? "Why, two or three col
umns of trash about Col. Murdock, Col.
Taylor and G. W. C. Jone3. All right.
For such a thick hide the Roacon has the
sorest skin with which our prod ever came
But to settle this whole controversy as to
the respective fitness and ability of Jone3
and this stranger Conly, we have to say,
and above our own signature, if necessary,
that outside of the Beacon office ring
there are not fifty people in the entire
county who arc not convinced that Jones
is head and shoulder? not only above Conly
as a candidate for county attorney, but
that the chances are, and which is our bc-
l'ef, that there is not another lawyer in the
entire county, Republican or Democrat,
who would guard with such care the inter
ests of the county, and give the ofiico of
county attorney so much time and consci
enlious attention as will George Jones.
They arc resorting to some mighty mean
schemes to boat Ed. Jewclt, and all the
schemes, and meanness do not originate
with the members of the Democratic party.
Men who have claimed to be Republicans
from principle, but who all the while were
only looking for a chance to get a bile, it
secms.hr.vc joined in on the fight with some
very questionable ammunition. Among
others we arc surprised at R. A. Hall, of
Mulvane, who over his own signature de
clares that a letter from Mulvane signed
"II. II.," to the Eagle, was written by
Ed. Jewelt. Mr. Hall don't know what
he is tal king about, or else he is delibeiate
ly lying, one or the other, for Ed. Jewett
didn't write the letter,, and so far as we
know he didn't know anything about it.
What has Ed. Jewelt ever done :is a man,
as a citizen, or as a Republican that would
excuse such misrepresentations and such
methods as have been and arc being re
sorted to to defeat him after so square, fair
and so honorable a nomination as his was.
Right upon the heels of the foregoing
misrepresentations we notice a charge inti
mating that Ed. Jewett has been guilty of
accepting bribes of drug stores in order that
they might retain their permits. We don't
have to hunt up Ed. Jewelt to hear from
his own lips that such a charge is a mean,
an infernally mean, contemptible lie, and
one it would do no hurt to make the authors
meet it in the courts as soon as the elec
tion is over. Tho jug store proprietor who
in his anxiety to put a Democrat into the
office of Trobatc Judge and who would
make an affidavit even squinting that way,
will stand a mighty bright show of landing
in the penitentiary. But no drug store,
nor jug store man ever hinted any such
thing. The slander is but the part
of a desperate programme entered
iuto to get tne permit business put where
joints and drug stores would have less
trouble and less risk to run. Every inti
mation that Ed Jewett has been anything
but an honest, upright ofilcial is foul slan
der, which no one who knows the man or
his history v ill for a moment entertain.
As for his future candidacy he hasnotonly
distinctly stated, but authorized this paper
to slate, early in the campaign, that he
would under no circumstances be a candi
date in 1SS3. Wc did not make the state
ment because wc deemed it unnecessary
THE REPUBLICAN FIGHT.
The great Lord Almighty, in his inscruit
ablc wisdom and in the interests of a higher
and purer civilization, arranged periods in
which tho party of humanity and progress
has been able to cleaus itself of contamina
tions and ronew itself with saving energies.
A few years ago the cranks and idiots gen
erally fell away from the Republican party,
some of them to tart Democratic papers
and some of them to get Democratic offices,
and now that a man like Cleveland has
been permitted to sit where Lincoln sat, a
lot of 4-clf-seeking "barnacles and political
traitors arc also falling away from the par
ty of living truth, and joining themselves
to the powers that rule. The sign is a most
au-pieious one, and it is the firs: duty
of every Republican to refrain from coax
ing them to stay. The party that saved
this nation will be better oil without these
; miserable truculent bread and butter yaw
pcrs. The ftrt indication of their rotten
ness is a threat to bolt or to scratch some
minor nominee. This is only an excuse.
Such cattle have already at heart made all
preparations to go over where they imagine
the fiesli pots are. Let them go. It
wouldn't hurt the fKturc of the party to
assist them a little. Relieve the Republi
can party of Sedgwick county of just abouU
one dozen of this class of fellows and the
party would not only be better, but very
much stronger in campaign battles.
Get rid of the mugwumps, the scratch
era and bolters.
"The Republican party is what it has al
ways been. Its motives are clean and
strong. It is morality in principle against
expediency in policy. It has the courage
of thought. It ha3 had its faults and its
weaknesses, but its human earnestness and
directness of honest purpose have never
been successfully impeached. There arc
400,000 graves in this land to-day, and the
blue that fell into mould and nothingness
long ago covered the forms of men who
carried in their cartridge boxes forty leaden
ballots for Republican success."
IT HAS KEPT US AWAKE OF NIGHT8.
This broad distinction between the mor
alities on the individual and the political
planes is what has infected this nation with
political dry rot and leprosy, and this
malign condition in effect reacts upon the
whole community to corrupt it, to disorga
nize society, and to produce uncharity
between man and man, on all planes of
thought and life. Beacon.
That is exactly what we have been
thinking for a month, and matters will
never be any better .so long as the Demo
cratic party persist? in relying upon success
by nominating men whom nobody ever

If Colonel Taylor had a case of $1,000 or
even $100, involving nice pojnts of law, he
would not put it into Mr. Jones' hands.
In such an event Col. Taylor would
never sleep until he had found and placed
his case in the hands of Georgo Washing
ton Calhoun Jones, and Capt. White would
do exactly the same thing, especially if he
thought the case a critical one.

"Slug Two" is very solicitous to have
me make some reply to his effusion of the
23th inst. I have no reply to make, except
to correct his statement concerning union
offices. "Slug Two," who is a friend of
mine, admits that D. R. Anthony, of the
Leavenworth Times, is the enemy of or
ganized labor, and that John A. Martin,
governor of Kausas, is the friend of organ-
izcd'labor. To use his own language, 1 c
says concerning Gov. Martin's friendship
for orgauized labor, "This is an undisputed
fact, and I, as well as all other union prin
ters, honor him for it."

that I have misrepresented the facts in re

A SEDGWICK COUNTV STOCK TAKM.
To the Editor of tho Kagle.
One of the greatest features of this rapid
ly developing part of Kansas are its stock
farms, and they arc fait pushing their way
to equal ranks with those of older states.
Standing out among the most prominent
is that of Mr. E. Rehm, owned by himself
and Mr. Buxton, an Englishman of great
wealth, and located on both sides of the
river at what is known as the Lockhardt
bridge, about twenty miles from Wichita,
and four miles north of Colwich. Your
correspondent thinking an account of some
of the representative stock through this
section would interest many of the Eagle's
readers, rode out there a day or two since,
and was very courteously receiv
ed, as all visilora are, and
shown about the place by Mr. Rehm and
Mr. 0. C. Ilincs, who has in charge
their stalliion "Scott," said to be the best
breeder of farm horses and horses of al 1
woik to ba found in this valley. He is a
rich mahogony bay with maguificcnt action,
and one of his colts belonging to C. P.
Hyde, carried off the first premium at the
Wichita fair this fall. The farm contains
niiio hundred and eleven acres, all divided
up into different fields and ranges. We
drove out half a mile southv.cst ot the
house and saw one hundred and fifty of as
fine shorthorn cattle as can bo found any
where, quite a number of them being reg
istered thoroughbreds, the bull 11th Baron
of Rosamond, bred by C. II. Leonard, of
Missouri, and registered in the American
Short Horn Herd Book is a beauty, and
Xoble Duke, registered in the English
Ilcrd Book, was sired by Breastplate, and
is a grand animal. He makC3 one oi the
finest show bulls as nil his ancestors have
been show animals. The chief among his
rediin-eed cows are those belonging to the
Sharon and Airdricamilies, and finer ani
mals are not to be found.
Wc saw a large Spanish Jack out in one
of the lots and were informed that he too
was a premium animal.
The appointments on aud about this
place are gotten up in the lesi possible
manner for convenience and it looks
like a small settlement to see the
large house aud barns with their clustering
sheds, graneries and stock shelters.
Wc must not overlook the piggeries here.
Everything is convenient and in order for
housing and breeding the pigs, with a large
tightly enclosed yard for them to run about
in. The reputation of any stock country
like ours depends upon the excellency of
the stock, and wc are proud to know that
we have such a farm in our valley, and
wish our young friend Mr. Rehm all the
success that hi energy and perseverance
