FRIDAY MORNING, NOV. 12, 1SSG.
Henry George is for free trade. Pow
derly is for protection. Between the two
the workingmen who arc divided on the
tariff question arc in a quandary as to
which shall he recognized as the leader.
The Ft. Scott Monitor says: "The de
feat -which Governor 3rartiu sustained in
Jus own county is in no wise discreditable
'to trim. The vote of law breakers, al
though they may be one's one neighbors, is
not as desirable as the votes of honest,
The Chilian government has formally
disestablished the state church of that
country and announced perfect liberty to
all forms of Christian faith. The catho
licity of vital Christianity demands soul
liberty wheresoever, and its march of pro
gression will not be stopped so long as hu
man laws attempt to bind the consciences
of the human race or any portion of it.
A day or two before the recent election
Postmaster General Yilaswent to his home
in Wisconsin to vote and while there yield
ed to the persuasive entreaties of his party
to speak in its behalf. In doing so lie
placed himself under the ban of the presi
dent's edict as to "pernicious political ac
tivity." "We will see if it is enforced
againthim. We will wager a chestnut
that it is not.
With all of her great sins of commission
in matters political, South Carolina pos
sesses some virtues that some of her sister
states might imitate to profit. That stale
prohibits divorce, absolutely; prohibits the
Ej?le of liquors everywhere in the rural dis
tricts, allowing it only in incorporated
town8?, and gi'ing these places local option,
of which about half the towns avail them
selves; forbids the running of freight trains
on the Sabbath, and all passenger trains ex
cept such as carry the U. S. mails; classes
duelling villi murder, and disfranchises
lottery ticket dealers.
Emporia Republican: At the late state
election the following graduates to the
formal school were elected to the office of
county superintendent: F. Robertson,
class of '75, Kingman county; Miss A. E.
Dixon, class of '81, Lyon county; Eli
Payne, class of '81, Reno county; Miss
Ella Kelly, class of '85, Cowley county; A.
IT. Bushey, class of '86, 3Iorris county:
Miss Sue D. Iloaglin, class of '80, Jackson
county, and Mrs. Ella Brown, one of the
original eighteen who entered the Normal
school, was also elected in Seward count-.
She is not a graduate, but was a student of
the Normal for about two years.
Recent estimates bhow that the colored
people of the country now edit over one
hundred newspapers, teach 18,000 public
public shools with 900,000 pupils, raise an
nually onu hundred and fifty million bush
els of cereals and two million, seven hun
dred thousand pounds of cotton. This
showing for a lace that was held in bond
age for two centuries, a'ld which the laws
of fclatcs under which they were held for
bade with a penalty that they be taught to
read or hold any property, proves the ca
pacity of that race for advancement unex
celled by any people in any age of the
world and emphatically disproves allega
tions of those who opposed their freedom
that they would lapse into barbarism and
finally become extinct. Their develop
ment in twenty years is truly marvelous.
The dispatches this morning tells ib of
the trial yesterday at Winnepeg, Manitoba,
of W. T. Stewart, the local manager of the
Western Union telegraph company in
Wichita, who recently absconded, carry
ing with him a sum of moner belonging
to the company, and who was subsequent
ly apprehended and held for trial in that
city. The case against Stewart was made
a test case under the laws of the Domiciou,
as to whether fugitives into that country
could be punished for offenses committed
agaiust the laws of another. The verdict
of the jury which tried the case was not
guilt and there being no extradition
stipulations in force between thai govern
ment and this, the prisoner w.ts released.
Not the leatt regretablc feature of the re
sult in this case is the encouragement it
will afford other dishonest fiduciaries to
follow his cxainnlc.
Dispatches state that the plan of estab
lishing a packing house on the co-operative
plan by that organization is in contempla
tion, and that ample means have been guar
anteed to start with if the Kiiirrhts of La-
borwill agree to abandon their former
methods of strikes ana riots, ami engage in '
lnuusinous pursuits mi ..... utwi respon
sibility. The statement presents rather
anomalous conditions. If the organization
is effected upon the cooperative plan, who
or what will members have to strike
against? The idea held out seems to be
that the plan is to make the employes their
own employers. The guarantee demanded
. '. . : llu.ir .-. .,
Ave presume, is the necessary security to
those who furnish the requisite capital.
There arc instances where co-operative en
terprises have been set up and successfully
carried on, but as a rule they pass into the
hands of those who manage them or other
hauds,-as soon as evidences of success are giv
en out. If the undertaking m Uiicagosliall
be put on foot, for the sake of uninterrupted
business transactions there aud its effects
upon the business of the entire country, it
is hoped it will put an end to the constant
ly recurring troubles between employers
anl employes in that city. If it shall, per
chauce, prove a solution of the labor
troubles it will be hailed bv all as a God-

THE TJ1UE FOUNDATION.
BY MAJOR M'XAMARA.
Are cities built of brick and stone,
Of homo; and stores and boards o! ti ale
Are these the things of which alone
A great metropolis is made?
Is it a scene of splendid streets,
Of busy trade and commerce marts,
Of colleges and churches fine,
And fountains and of noble parks!
Are these the things of which are made
The thrivine cities that now stand,
An inpex of the pride and worth
Of all that's noble in a land?
Ah, these are not the things, indeed,
On which all sterling cities rest;
They're builded up alone upon
The honor in a merchant's breast!
On words of men that weigh like gold.
Whose names are bright without a flaw;
The words of men who hardly know
The meaning of a suit at law!
No' failure can such cities know ;
Their march is onward all the time,
And in their streets no grass will grow,
Nor on their scales, mildew or grime.
To such good men will point and say
Behold what business honor's done!
Commercial Honor built it up
And it will hold the place it's won.
No! It is neither bricks nor stones
That builds a city proud and great,
But business honor that alono
Will give it high commercial state!

MOKK AliOUT THAT SIIiVEU TINI).
To the Editor of the Eagle.
Caldwell, Kan., Nov. 10. Yours of
last issue to hand, and see some few of our
"boys" state that it is a 1 . I wish to
state for their benefit as well as the public
generally, that I have certificates in my
possession made by "U S. assayers as well
as well known Denver assayers, and the re
ports show from 5.30 to 3, also traces, of
gold. Wc do notclaim to have any white
elephant prospects, but do claim to have
gold and silver, but as to the quantity we do
not know, but will be able in a short time
to give all the benefit of what we have.
AiW all we ask is not to be misjudged, or
accused of being thieves and swindlers, as
we claim lo be honorable and icsponsible.
If we arc not our properly surely will be.
And as you will recollect wc had our
earlier training in the famous and world
wide known city, old Wichita. And will
also state if any one feeling interested in
our future prospects, as well as his own,
and doubting the above remarks, we cor
dially ask them to call on us. We will
take our private carriages, convey them to
the silver and gold fields, take them home
with us, take lunch, and it need not cost
him or them one cent. Call and see us,
take no man's word, but sec for yourselves.
I offer this to your thousands of readers
who are anxiously waiting.
Yours truly, S. ILvkvet Hokneu.
Wc cheerfully give place to the forego
ing, inasmuch as the offered cause of of
fense to our neighbors in these columns
in the shape of an interview with some
gentlemen who had been upon the ground,
and who, from practical experience in min
ing, were presumed to know whereof they
spoke. The Eagle was the first paper to
give to the public the news of the find, and
it felt called upon to correct whatever er
ronious impression its publications might
have created, if indeed there were any mis
take in the statement of the alleged find.
The matter is one of much concern to
Caldwell, inasmuch as upon it now de
pends no little of that city's future prosper
ity as well as its citizens' veracity and in
tegrity, and we trust they will take prompt
steps to put the matter at rest. It can be
done and at no very great expense, by
sending a sufficient quantity of the ore to
some point and have it smelted. Such
practical test will end the controversy as
nothing else, i seems, will. J
VKATT CENTEH I1KIEFS.
To the Editor of the Eale.
Your correspondent visited this thriving
young city hut week and was pleased to
find the man' evidences of growth and
prosperity to be seen by the large number
of new residences, churches and other
buildings that have been erected during the
past year. Pratt Center is one of the
leading cities in the county, and its trade
has grown wonderfully during the past two
years with the large increase of population
in the territory surrounding it, and also
through the large immigration west of it,
which has been rushing into the south
western counties at a 2:40 gait for the past
two years. The new buildings whicl
have been finished during the past ear and
those now in course of erection are as fol
lows: Four churches, a very large and
handsome school building, which cost $S,
500, and a solid stone and brick business
block. The city also can be proud of her
banking institutions, of which there arc
three, the Bank of Pratt, Gus. Carlander,
cashier; Farmers and Merchants bank, J.
W. Wilcox, cashier, and Hutchison
Brothers bank. The press is also well
represented by the lively papers, the Pratt
County Time- ';T Ludstrom & Nerton;
the Pratt County Press,- by A. g. ThoimV,
and the Pratt Count Register, by Dilda
& Vanesden. The leading hotels arc the
Almo and the Leland. The last named is
a new and well-kept house, while Mr. W.
IT. Ralston, the proprietor, is a courteous
and considerate host, and knows how to
make his house a comfortable one for the
public. The enterprise of the city has also
boon lately demonstrated by the fact that
its citizens have had faith enough in its fu
ture to build at a large expense, for such a
young city, a complete system of water
works, and in a few days they will enjoy
the convenience of having water brought
into their stores and dwellings without the
labor of pumping or earning it.
In conclusion we can safely say that
Pratt Center is a boss town, and that its
citizens are of a class who know how to
advance the interests of their favorite
place, while they also have an adjacent
farming country the finest in the land.

A KOAD TAX COLLECTABLE.
The supreme court has just decided in
favor of the- road tax. A test-case was
brought by C. F. W. Dassler, of Leaven
worth, who refused to pay his highway
taxes of 3 or to work on the streets for
two days' as provided by the city ordinance.
Notice was served on him by the street
commissioner, and Mr. Dassler refusing
to pay the taxes was arrested by the
city marshal and placed in the jail. Mr.
Dassler broneht the case to the supreme
court on a writ of habeas corpus for the
purpose of testing the qnestion. He
claimed that the city had no right to collect
such tax, and no law of the state gave the
city the right to collect it. He
claimed further that the collection of
the tax was in direct conflict with the thir
teenth amendment of the constitution of
the. United Stotes, that is that it was invol
untary servitude. The supreme court in
the decision of yesterday decided against
3Ir. Dassler and holds that the highway
tax is legal. The court holds that work
upon the street is not involuntary servitude,
within the meaning of the thirteenth
amendment of the "United States constitu
tion; also that it is not a tax upon the
right to vote, because as they con
strue the statute, it does not limit
to those who are registered, but that all be
tween the ages of 21 and 45 may ba com
pelled to work whether registered or not,
and that a tax is not a debt within the
meaning of the constitutional provision
abolishing imprisonment for debt, and that
therefore a party may be imprisoned for
the non-payment of taxes.
Governor Martin publishes in his paper,
the Atchison Champion, the following:
The Leavenworth saloons will save their
proprietors trouble by going. The people
of the state have again served notice on
them, and the governor and attorney gen
eral propose to devo'e their special atten
tion to the Leavenworth saloons. If the
law is not effective enough to close them
it will be strengthened as soon as the leds
lalurc meets. If no other measure will be
effective a metropolitan police bill will be
adopted for Leavenworth. The people of
Kansas have no disposition to supercede
local governments anywhere, but if the lo
cal governments persistently encourage
law breaking and nullify the laws of the
state, the state will exert its power against
1) ULL SOCIETY WINTEK.
From the New York Sun.
The impression in Washington seems to
be that the coming winter will not be so
gay as the last one. The family of the sec
retary of state arc still in mourning. Mr.
Manning's health will not admit of large
entertainments at his house, and the Secre
retary of the Navy and Mrs. Whitney en
tertain very little in Lenox, and arc not
likely to keep open house in the unlimited
way that they did last winter. Very few
New Yorkers have taken houses as yet, and
Senator Yulce's fine mansion on Connecti
cut street will be closed of course. As a
set off to this there will be the hospitalities
of the executive mansion, which the young
mistress will probably make to blossom like
the rose by her own gracious influence.
Dinners and receptions there must necessa
rily be of course, but why should there not
be a ball or a succession of dances at tnc
White House, a form of entertainment
which Mrs. Cleveland herself might enjoy,
and which is much better.
