LET BOTKIN RESIGN -HIS BISHOP
A personal letter to the editor of the

last week Bishop Ninde, at Paola, made
an address to four hundred or more per
sons, in the course of which he used the
following language touching preachere
in politics, that is, Methodist preachers:
"A Methodist minister is a citizen.
He was a citizen before ho was a minis
ter. Ho has a right to his political opin
ions, and at the right time and place to
express them. He has a right to bo
nominated for office and to accept such
nomination; but when he does so with
out resigning his ministry, he cannot re

REPUBLICAN COUNTY TICKET.
C. H. Luling for Clerk District Court.
Charlie Luling, as he is familiarly
known to nearly every man in Sedgwick
county who has been a resident of the
county as long as twelve months, is the
nominee of the Republican party for the
position of clerk of district court for
this county. He was born in New York
City September 13, 1353, and is, conse
quently, a little above tlm ty-three years
old. His parents moved to Fon du Lac,
Wis., in 1837, where ho resided until
manhood and where he received a com
mon school education and graduated at
Gillett's business college. He married in
Clayton, 111., in the fall of 1S87 and
removed to Wichita in 1SS0.
Not tho least important feature of Mr.
Luling's early education and business
training was a complete apprentice
ship in the printing business, filling
tho various stations from devil to boss.
The piactical knowledge of general bus
iness thus acquired, supplemented by
that procuiod fiom tho text bookj, flitted
him for an active business life, and he
has been engaged mainly in commercial
pursuits dining his eight years residence
in this county, for tho past three years
chief bookkeeper for the Diamond mills
of this city.
Politically Mr. Luling is a thorough
going, uncompromising Republican, con
forming his actions to the direction of
the party, national, state and local,
standing unswervingly by its principles
and nominees under all circumstances.
As to his fitness and qualifications for
tho office of clerk of the district court it
is not necessary to speak further; every
body who knows him concedes tho point
without a question. As a citizen no
man in the county is held in higher es
teem for qualities of integrity and hon
Chairman Galloway's threatened mort
gage publication is out and he is sending
tho document to the chairman of the
Democratic county committees through
out the state, instructing them by circu
lar to see that thoy get into the hands of
Republicans and Union Labor people,
especially. If the showing made were
true it could not fail to do the state in
calculable injury irr a business way away
from home: but as it is a gross exaggera
tion of the financial status of the state
and its citizens, it can only be charac
terized as a willful and deliberate (if not
malicious) slander upon the entire com
munity, and all the more inexcusable
and senseless because it would include in
its damaging effects members of the per
petrators, own part:,-. Any compromis
ing condition of the business or
financial situation that is traceable,
either directly or indirectly to un
wise legislation or maladministration
on the part of the dominent party, based
upon fact, is not only admissible but is
legitimate campaign material in the
hands of political opponents, but the use
of such methods as that fallen upon in
the case in question by the managers of
the Democratic party deserve to be re
buked by every good citizen, whatever
his political predelictions, for in no case
can the partisan advantage hoped for by
sdeh publication be commensurate with
the harm that would unavoidably ensue
to every properoy owner in the state
wero such statements borne out bv exist
aft.tft-Jwtfih wyif jiaxittp
ing conditions. If the alleged expose
does not cost the Democracy heavily in
votes at the election we greatly mistake
the spirit of resentment on tire part of
the intelligentvoter3 of this state. We
can only wish that a copy of the famous
(not to say Infamous) publication may
fall into the hands of every Republican
voter, as it could not fail to arouse them
to renewed determination to visit upon
their political foe and enemy to the state
an overwhelming and lasting defeat.
WHAT IS AT STAKE?
Our Democratic friends are secretly
scheming in divers ways, and by tho
Tilden methods of 1S76, to steal the
legislature and defeat Senator Plumb's
re-election, and thus overturn Republi
can ascendancy in the United States
senate. The nation, the state and
Wichita are deeply interested to prevent
this. It would pave the way for free
trade, for business paralysis, and the
prostration of the west for years to come.
This condition of things cursed this
country in 1S37 and in 1837-'8, under
the influence of Democratic tariff tinker
ing. The business and laboring interests of
the country are involved in this strug
gle. Beaten in the war of secesson, the
south is secretly, with her northern
Democratic allies, struggling to
precipitate upon the north an
other war in a new form, best de
scribed by Senator Vest as a war that is
to exterminate the policy of protection,
which financially enabled the north to
free the slaves, put down, the rebellion,
liquidate six billions of expenses there
for, pay nearly two-thirds of the bonded
war debt and have a surplus on hand.
All sorts of subterfuges are resorted to
to accomplish this end, and those in
Kansas who-have profited by the Repub
lican policy and who has not? cannot
too soon realize the danger that confronts
this city and the state.
Under the rule of the south tho De
mocracy of tho north is powerless. The
continued prosperity of the west depends
on an anti-Democratic policy. The west
must as a matter of business oppose a
policy that would shut up the doors of the
treasury to such necessaiy expendi
tures as Wichita is entitled to.
A man may be a Democrat and yet
refuse to obey a policy which the south
dictates. Thousands refused to follow
the south in 1S01. Thousands should do
so now, when the war on the north and
west comes in a new form clothed in
the garments of peace, but with ballots
to strike down and ruin northern indus
tries. It is a simple business proposition, in
which England takes great interest with
the south, as she did in 1SG1, and in
which the voters of the north must
interest themselves, -if they don't want
to see their interests destro3'ed.
THAT SACKVILLE WEST BOMB.
Judge Thurman and Speaker Carlisle,
although five hundred miles away and
presumably with no other knowledge of
the facts and circumstances than tho
readers of the daily newspapers, boldly
throw themselves in the breach and
promptly deny the authenticity of tho
Murchison-West correspondence upon
the question of supporting Cleveland by
English-American voters. The off-hand
denunciations of tho far-away champi
ons do not tally with tho repeated and
protracted consultations in Washington
over the matter, which actions on tho
part of the president and his advisers
carries with it to the popular mind the
conviction that there is much of truth
in it. It requires no stretch of imagina
tion, no jumping at conclusions on the
part of the public to accept the corre
spondence alluded to as not only au
thentic but as poi traying tho situation
discussed therein as it is. It is in ex
actjaccord with what has long been known
as the state of feeling, the close sym
pathy existing between the present Dem
ocratic administration and tho English
government and its subjects. If Mr.
Carlisle's denunciation of the corres
pondence that it is a forgery, or Judge
Thurman's characterization of it as a
Republican trick ba true, either of them,
it will be a very easy matter to sub
stantiate their charges by a public
statement to that effect fiour Mr. West
who, no doubt, would be only too glad
to do his esteemed friend, the president,
such a serrice, seeing tho disastrous
elTect of the publication of his convic
tions as to Mr. Cleveland's attitude to
wards his country and his advice to
Murchison in response to his inquiry
concerning tho course of political action
he and his fellow-countrymen should take
at the ponding election. If tho corres
pondence or any part of it is a forgery
Mr. West will not fail to so brand it, if
for no other reeason, as a matter of self
defense, for not only his reputation as a
diplomat but most likely his official
position is involved. The case seems to
be very clearly made out.

If the Irish-American citizens and
voters will but read the Marchion-West
correspondence, published in yesterday's
dispatches, no statement or argument
from Republicans will be needed to prove
to them that the Cleveland admimstra

hereditary oppressors and implacable
enemies. All we need to say to the Irish
voter is'to read the correspondence,
An Instructive Letter From "Sedgwick."
Washington, D. C, Oct. 24, 1888,
To tho Editor or tho Ezle.
The recent opening of the Washing
ton monument to visitors has made the
ascent of tnat great shaft one of the
chief points of interest at the capital.
As your readers know this structure is,
up to the present time, the loftiest crea
tion of human hands. It towers above
the highest of the pyramids and might
look down upon the tallest cathedral
spires such as those at Strasbourg, Ant
werp, Saint Peter's at Rome, Saint Paul's
at London, Saint Sophia's at Constanti
nople and others of equal or lesser re
nown. The great tower in process of
erection at Paris, to be completed in
time for the approaching world's exposi
tion, will almost double the height of the
monument, but it is being built for a
special purpose, and being composed al
most exclusively of metal its permanen
cy may well be doubted, while the mass
ive masonry of the monument will
doubtless be able to withstand the effects
of the elements for centuries to come.
The view from the top of the monu
ment is exceedingly beautiful, varied and
picturesque. It extends far down the
noble river, broadening on its way to
the sea, and in an opposite direction
is bounded by Lookout Moun
tain, a point of great interest in
the military annals of the rebellion.
The panorama of the city and suburbs,
with their great variety of structures
and streets, avenues, parks, etc., is
There are historical associations Con
nected with the monument and its pro
gress to completion, which may be
thought worthy of being noted. It is
well authenticated that Washington
himself approved, if he did not suggest,
the sight "of this great structure. On
the original plat of the city made by the
celebrated French engineer, Major
L'Enfant, tills precise spot was desig
nated as the site- of a eiand historical
monument commemorative of the suc
cessful establishment of the republic.
Of course Washington had no thought
that the proposed monument would be
simply a tribute to himself, but, as
stated, designed it to be a perpetual me
morial of the success of our efforts for
independence. This original plat desig
nated other points of interest in the city,
which at this time are employed for tho
very purposes for which they were orig
inally choaen. Thus the site of the cap
itol was marked as "the congress house;"
tho historic structure familiarly known
as tho white house, was called "the pres
ident's house," etc.
The vicinity of the monument pre
sented at that time a vastly differ
ent appearance from what it
presents at present. I have
been told by old inhabitants that consid
erably within tho last half century large
ships anchored apposite the mounment,
at a distance of only a few hundred
yards. An historic mansion in the very
shadow of the present structure is now a
low resort, given over to negro dances
and like entertainments. The locality,
whicli has since been made repulsive by
the Potomac maishes and their pestilen
tial vapors was in the earlier times not
only healthful but fashionable. It is not
unreasonable to expect, moi cover, that
when the improvements now in progress
shall have been completed, tho old status
will not only do restored, but it will be
so largely improved upon that these re
cently pestilential marshes will bo trans
formed into beautiful parks and lakes.
It was a long time before the plan of
the great monument on this site was
matured, the delay perhaps affording
another illustration of the ingratitude of
republics. However, the enterprise at
length took shape and a society was
formed for the purpose of collecting sub
scriptions and forwarding the work.
During tho administration of President
Taylor the corner-stone was laid with
imbressive ceremonies, and it is believed
to be a well authenticated fact that the
cold which the president took on that
occasion was really the foundation of his
subsequent fatal illness. The work pro
ceeded vigorously, for a few years,
patient efforts being made to
secure the necessary funds.
Subscription boxes wero put up
in the various departments and other
public places, and appeals wero made
throughout the country. At length,
however, this source of supply fell off,
and the work came to a standstill. It is
humiliating, especially to old residents of
Washington, to recall the many years
during whioli this incomplete and un
s ghtly structure was made a theme of
derision and jest.
When congress grappled with the
proposition to take hold of the work,
now some ten years since, considerable
opposition was developed, principally on
account of objections to the site. As
has already been indicated, the great
changes that had come about since the
original location had seemed to render
the locality an undesirable one. Be
sides, the foundation had been found to
bo inadequate, and there was a differ
ence of opinion among engineers as to
practicability of carrying the structure
much higher with safety. After ample
discussion it was finally determined that
as this site had been cboosen witlr the
approval of the father of his country-
lnmselt, it was the uuty or congress, u
tho work was to bo completed at all, to
complete it on the site as chosen. Ap
propriations were subsequently made
trom time to time, and the people wero
at last cheered with tho premise of tho
early completion of this great work.
An engineering feat of great interest
was accomplished in connection with
the foundation, being no less than the
removal of the original masonry which
constituted it, and the substitution of a
much more extensive foundation com
posed of concrete. Thus, not only was
tbo foundation made more ample and
complete, but the structure, which had
been deflected slightly from a true line,
was restored to the perpendicular.
An interesting coincidence, which
should perhaps have been mentioned
earlier, is found in the fact that the same
orator officiated both at the laying of the
corner stone of the structure and at the
celebration at its completion the vener
able Robert C. Wrnthrop, of Massachu
setts. When the monument approached com
pletion there was considerable discussion
in congress and elsewhere as to the pro
priety of surrounding the base with
elaborate marble terraces to bo adorned
with historical statues. A number of
distinguished artists recommended this
policv, but it was finally determined,and
very "sensibly, too, that the rugged eim
plicitv of the shaft itself, without any
aids "by way of exterior adornment,
would more fittingly commemorate the
majestic character of Washington.
During the early progress of the
work many of the states, as well
as a nuc.'ier of foreign
governments, maue voluntary offerings
of memorial stones or tablets to be in
serted in the structure; thti3 evidencing
their admiration of the great character
whom it was designed to honor. A por
tion of these stones have already been
placed in the interior, and others are
being similarly located.
A curious incident happened in con
nection with the offering mado by his
holiness, the pope. It was at a tirno of
intense political excitement, tho Know
. .. - f -y--v- 3 J1J. S- M- .iaaafiMiMiaMMMWW iMMMalMBW
Nothing party being then at the height
of its power. Washington was not then,
as now, governed by commissioners and
debarred from the exercise of the right
of suffrage; but was a regular munici
pality, with a mayor and board of alder
men, and its cherished system of slavery.
So heated was the temper of these Know
Nothing bigots ;at the" time that they
strenuously objected to the acceptance
of any such memorial stone from a dig
nitary so hated as the pope. A mob was
therefore organized, aided and abetted,
it 13 said, by roughs from Baltimore who
bore then, and for years subseqentiy
richly merited, the title of '"'pluguglies,"
who "seized this stone and deposited it at
some indefinite point at the bottom of
the Potomac. This great achievement
was not only the occasion of a great
deal of comment throughout tho
country, favorable and unfavorable,
but it appears to have inspired
the muse of local poet, who maundered
through a dozen or more stanzas of the
most atrocious doggerel that was prob
ably ever committed to type. One
stanza will probably be as much as your
readers will tamely submit to:
"All the states they sent a stone,
The pope of Rome sent one accordin';
The KnowNothin' boys, with a great noise,
Lauded it on the other side of Jordan."
In the latter years, congress seems to
have awakened to the propriety of ful
filling the promises of the long past. In
the first flush of our triumph in the es
tablishing of the nation, monuments
were pledged to many of the heroes who
had signally contributed to this glorious
result. When this ardor cooled, and
the people wero busied rather with the
demands of the present than the memo
ries of the past, these patriotic pledges
were forgotten. A few years 6ince,
probably inspired by the patriotic fervor
generated by the Centennial of our inde
pendence, congress took up this loug
neglected and long forgotten work. As
a consequence, memorials have been and
are being erected upon historic grounds
in various sections of tho country, nota
notably on the battlefields of Sara
toga, presumably so called be
cause it is some miles distant
from Saratoga: at Bennington, Vt.; at
Newburgh, N. Y., long the headquarters
of Washington; Monticello, the home of
Jefferson; and at Yorktown and other
places. A contract has recently been
awardea to eminent 'French sculptors
for a heroic statue of La Fayette, which
is destined to adorn one of the beautiful
reservations of the capital, the particular
one not yet selected.
It seems now more than probable that
at the expiration of the next decade the
American people will find that not only
fitting monumental honors have been
paid to the illustrious heroes of our
earlier wars, but that also, in conjunc
tion with the memorials of the noble
men who fell in our later struggle, they
will make this country second to none in
its wealth of sculptured tributes to de
parted heroes long dead, but whose
glory is immortal. Sedgwick.
EBEY'S WOOLY SUBSTITUTE.
Cheney, Kan.. Oct. 2G. JSSS.
To tho Editor of theEAGLK-
Dear Sir Mr. F. Dale spoke hero
Tuesday, Oct. 23. In his speech he re
marked: "We buy 12 pounds of sugar
for one dollar, and if we take the tariff
off of it it would be 22 pounds for one
dollar." About wool he said: "Wo
farmers don't need any piotection; we
havo no sheep in this country. Tho
western country would down us anyhow
on sheep. If Mr. Chas. S. Ebey had
spoken so I would not havo expected
more of him, because ho is not in the
country long enough to know what the
the farmers need; but Dale spoke in
Ebey's place and ought to havo known
better. Ye want the tariff tlrat we had
in 18G7 on wool, so wo get cheap here
and also in the western country. This
would reduce the cattle raising in the
western country and we would stand a
chance to make the cattle raising pay.
Wool came down in price from SO to 50
cents in 1807 to 10 to 13 cents in 18S8.
For vearhng steer I paid $22 m 181 and
1SS2 and those same kind of steers I can
get now for 13. Two-year-old steers I
paid 28 to 30; I buy them now lrom
$18 to 22. For cows in Kansas City I
get from 1 to 1.75.
I proved, up a homestead in Kansas,
invested it with stock, and I must say
debts never bothered me. I was doubling
the money every year. In 1SS3, from
July 10 to October'l, I paid every hand
that worked for me 1.30 per day, with
board just as good as in any boarding
house in Wichita and none ol the hands
had to overwork themselves; they
worked just as they pleased; they were
hired for binding wheat at Jl.OOper day.
But those times are gone. Tariff is
taken off lfc07 and 18S2, Australia in
creased its large heids of sheep and will
furnish us all the wool that is necessary.
If 3Ir. Chas. S. Ebey with his southern
Democratic friends put tho vool on the
free list let us have the tariff on the
wool that we had in 1807. That would
decreaso our great cattle ranches and
would give tho f arniers a new impulse
to start on farming or cattle raising.
The fields that aie grown up with weeds
would not be seen, and hands would not
bo seen lying around on the streets.
Thev would find emplovment and get
good wages. Mr. Ebey and his southern
friends wants to get free trade. Let them
have it on sugar, so we get twenty-two-
pounds for a dollar as Mr. Dale men
tioned. I say "Protection for American
induries." GusTAQ Kocn.
A. J. Streeter, the Union Labor partv's
candidate for president, in an interview
published in tho Kansas City Times of
