LOST IN THE SANOS.
Sad Fate of David PhhHrjH, af Sallia.
Sauna, June 22. One of those terrible
calamities that sometime! visits a family in
now recorded In the family of Colonel Win.
A. Phillips. On the Stu of Jane, David
1'hllllps, a younger brother of Colonel
rbilllps, started for Washington territory,
by the Santa Fe route. By the time he
reached Yuma, on the California line, he
was quite ill from the beat, but resolved to
continue his journey. The train arrived at
Volcano station, seventy miles west ol
Yuma at midnight of the 10th, where Mr.
Phillips, now delirious from the effect of
the extremely hot weather, jumped from
the train and dashed out upon the barren
sandy desert, where not even a cactus
could grow. The train was delayed one
hour while the train men and passengers
searched for him, but owlug to the dark
ness the search was a failure.
The next morning, Sunday, the section
men took up the "f-earch and tracked him
five miles, when the wind came up and In
less than a minute destroyed all trace of
tho unfortunate wanderer. Under tele
graphic Instructions from Colonel Phillips
In Washington, and relations in this city,
hunting parties were organized in Cotton
to work cast, and in Yuma to work west,
undercharge of James Phillips a nephew
of the lost man.
The search was kept up until last Tues
day morning, in spite ol the predictions of
the plainsmen that It would be of no use,
as Mr. Phillips had probably become ex
hausted, fallen, and had been burled alive
in the sand, leaving no trace. The desert
at this place is full of white sand, lev el and
unbroken for miles until the gravel hills
arc reached, and utterly barren. No water
Is to be fouud fu the direction the unfortu
nate man took for more than a hundred
miles, while cast and wot It was eighteen
miles to a water tank.
Colonel Phillips arrived in Sallna yester
day, the pad news being kept Irom his
mother, now aged over eighty, until his ar
rival, leaving him to break the news to her.
David Phillips leaves a wife and five
children, the oldest child being n girl of
fourteen. He had intended to locate in
Washington territory aud establish a cattle
ranch. And he waited a short time longer
be would have been accompanied by the
colonel, w ho is golngao California, w here
his wife at present resides for her health.
On an unbroken sandy desert, without
even a hillock to mark his resting place,
now lies as good a man as ever resided in
Kansas, beloved by all who knew him dur
ing his long residence here.

Her aud other distinguished men were
present. The ceremonies of unveiling con
sisted or an artillery salute, dedicatory
pracrs, anode by ladies aud a memorial
oration by Senator Hampton.
Senator Hampton paid a tribute to the
faith, devotion and patience of the south
ern women, aud said that when the true
history ol the war shall bo written they
should certainly occupy the first place in
our hearts. Hut first in honor, they would
always repel with ecorn ami Indignation
the imputation that monuments to the con
federate dead marked the spot where trait
ore slept, AVe of the south were neither
traitors nor rebels; nor vva our war in any
proper sense a rebellion. It was strictly a
civil war, growing nut ol conflicting inter
ests and different constructions of the
constitution by the opposing sections ot
the country. He maintained that the per
fect union or the states, as contemplated by
our lathers, could never he possible irthe
citizens of one portion of the republic arc
to be kept in that union .merely on suffer
age, hut suspected; of contributing their
rull share to the support or tho government
hut uot participating in its directions;
bearing its burdens, but not sharing the
honois, and reeling thai in tho home of
their fathers they aro but unwelcome In
truders. He congratulated the country
that the future was auspicious; that the
scars of war were being obtitteratcd by
time, aud demanded that our former ene
mies do Justice to the motives that Inspires
our conduct. He believed Ifthesettlcment
of the war issue-shad been left to the old
leaders the country would have been saved
the shame and humiliation of reconstruc
tion. He counselled obedience to the law
and the supremacy or tho constitution, and
said it requires every mutual rorbearanec,
concession and generosity on the pail or
the late toutcuding sections to bring about
this result, and surely every statcsmin,
every lover or his country desires to see
fids cud reached; it can be attained with
out the loss or sclr-respcet by any man,
north or south; without any unmanly deg
rcdation; without the sacrifice or oue low
est conviction or one cherished primlple.
The gre'at questions which were tt Issue
between the north and south and which
vvero left to the arbitrament by war were
deeided against in, but the sword never
has decided and never will decide the ques
tion involving the final judgment of the
motive aud actions of man. That rests
with a higher tribunal than any 011 this
eartii, ami to that last great court an ap
peal must be taken on every question of
right and wrong. He submitted that for
our conviction we are responsible alone to
our own conscience, and to our Sod.
Hence, there Is no inconsistency lu our
giving to the constitution aud laws under
which we live an earnest, conscientious
support, while we hold in tender reverence
the memory or the men who died for the
cause we held to be just and right.
The oration was received with much en

A few weeks ago the Ktr.LK published

Jy Dtar Intmor; Your otherwise ex
cellent report ol the doings of the assembly
at Saratoga, Is out of gear with the ftcts as
to the action on temperance. The report
of the standing committee led to a some
what heated discussion, chiefly because, In
one ol lis sections, It was confusing and
misleading as to prohibition and license.
As it stood, It satisfied very few of the ad'
vocates of cither policy. In the progress of
the discussion, thn following was offered
for actiou : " Without attempting to indi
cate any distinct tine of policy to be pur
sued in the effort to suppress Intemperance,
JlftolriJ, That in view of the evils wrought
by this seourage of our race, this assembly
would ball with acclamations of joy and
thanksgiving the titter extermination of
the traflic in intoxicating liquor as a bev
erage, by the powcrof Christian conscience,
public opinion, and the strong arm of civil
law." Your report says, "this va lost."
On the contrary It was received with great
and prolonged applause, and tbe next
L morning It was adopted with almost entire
unanimity. Other action was taken, reaf
firming past deliverances, recoguizing-tbe
splendid spirit and purpose and work of
the women in this direction, etc., but the
above Is tho gist of tbe whole matter, en
bodjing the most decisive and sweeping
actiou ever taken by the general assembly,
Your report represents mo as offering
amendments which was adopted, declaring
" against prohibition as a distinctive meas
ure." Tbe fact is quite the contrary, as tho
above resolution shows. Hailing with joy
the titter extermination of the liquor traffic
by tbe strong arm of the law is a strange
way of " declaring against prohibition!"
llecognlzing the power of "Christlon con
science " and ' public opinion" also, and
impliedly expressing the belief of their in
dispensable agency, is doing what the
great miss of prohibitionists would not
hesitate most heartily to approve.

railroad, the telegraph, the telephone and
other evidences ol civilization have broken
in rudely upon Ids dream and he finds all
around hiin the loar and stir of the new
civilization. New Mexico is a country or
wonders. Her gold and silver mines rank
ainpng the very richest and most extensive
in the world; she has an inexhaustible sup
ply of coal, botliof alltunimousand authra
citequalit; nearly every character of min
eral is to be fouud in her mountains; she
has millions of sheep and cattle aud the
finest graziug grounds in the world to reed
them on. In New Mexico the herds and
flocks increase rapidly during the wiuter
season, owing to Its mildness, last winter,
according to the best or authority. It hav
ing been fully rorty per cent. The mines
ol the territory cau also be worked all the
year louud, the advantage or this being
that there Is no cessation ot work 011 ac
count or windy or other rough weather.
Those who wish lo see what New Mexico
can produce should not fail to visit the ex
position next month, for there will be
exhibited all the products or tho territory
mineral, agrieiiltuiai, horticultural, stock,
etc. Heretofore this region has becu great
ly itndcrelimited in an agricultural way,
but a visit to the exposltiou will show that
New Mexico can grow some things that are
quite the equ d of our ow 11 prolific Kansas.
The exposition will show the territory in
Its true light and if a man will examine
carefully what is there shown he will find
himself nearly as well informed as though
he had made a tour of the territory from
one end to the other.
Santa I'e, the most ancient "City or
the Holy K.iilh' is a curious and at
tbe same time wonderful old pljcc.
and when the traveler enters ft he
reels as though he were In a foreign
laud thousaniUir miles from home. There
is an air of antiquity pervading the place
that even the presence of improvements
which arc modern iu every way does not
have the power to dispel. The visitor is
shown the old chapel of San Mlquci, cred
ited with being three hundred ears old,
while it is known to be at least two
hundred aud seventy; next to the
chapel is the oldest house In Santa Ke,
standing as it was first built, with the
single exception that doors and windows
have been cut iu the sides. Originally the
door was in the roof and there were no
windows opening upon Ihe street at all
Outside the door is the oven where the
baking is done; Inside the furniture is the
same as it was seven or eight generations
ago. Then there U the Cathedral of San
Kranciseo, which is overouc hundred years
old, and the tiovernor's palace, now the
residence of (iov. I.. A. Sheldon, which is
more than tw lee that age. This palace Is a
one-story adooc building, like ail -New Mex
ican house", nit it is very handsomely tit
ted up and is a pleasant place to live.
The exposition grounds are iu the city
and adjoin Knit Marey on the north. The
exhibits will lie very full ami complete and
represent every section ol the territory.
Special premiums have been offered for the
wool exhibits, which will be very fine.
The Industrial exhibits will be very com
plete also. In addition to fids there are to
be features of historical Interest in the
shape of tableaux, processions, cavalcades,
etc. On tbe 18th, l'Jlh aud 20th ot July
fbero will lie historical representations,
each day to embrace 3 century of history
and progress. The first day w II represent
the civili7aliou the invading Spaniards
found; the second, the civilization tho con
querors brought witli them and the third,
the civilization of Ihe present time. These
will le represented by cavalcades In cos
tume and will bo lute'rcting in every way
Then thero will ho Indian observances and

the traveler to stop off at the famous springs
at Los Yagcs, both coining and returning.
To tie Edilor of the agle :
Your paper has from time to time con
tained report from this township, but no
stage of its past history can compare with
the state of things now existing here. Im
agine ourself standing on along, low ridge
or divide, such as only our beautiful prai
ries of tbe West can furnish to the eye of
Xature's admirers. Before you can be seen
the long stretch of country gradually slop
ing from your feet to the river bank in tbe
distance. Ail this covered with green grass
and luurlous vegetation, broken here and
there by a little rivulet coursing through
and watering both corn and wheat fields,
lulling tbe grasshopper and chincbbiig to
sleep with Its murmuring as It flows gently
on to larger waters. Farms basking In the
suushinc, their bouses almost hidden among
clusters of bachelpr's buttons, and beneath
branches of forget-me-not's, while before
their doors, almost everywhere, domestic
animals may be seen feeding at their leis
ure, such as bantam chickens, jack rabbits
and wild ducks. All nature seems still.
To look upon such ascene is to be enchant
ed with it. But suddenly, all Is changed,
tho beauty of tbe tlew Is gone; tbe wind
comes sweeping across tbe prairies; the
whole air seems filled with flying 'missiles,
making you dodge about iu all direction to
avoid them, thinking every moment was
your last. In s moment all Is calm and se

without getting bit by a flying organ, a

new house or part ol one. Two and a half
miles west of there, a man got struck with
his own wheat field, and the disastrous re
sult Is that it is going to make forty-five
bushels to tbe acre. Self-binders and new
sukey plows are being hailed down ou al
most every farm. Telephones smash In at
one window and out at another. The very
atmosphere seems laden with cheese, while
one or two young ladies got struck with
buggies and the tire lelt on their finger.
Musicians and doctors bad narrow escapes.

"The State reports of Kansas have been

THE RAILWAY BOARD.
Shippers, Great or Sraall, la Kaataa Matt
Under date of June 21st, tbe railway com.
mlssioners, replying to a letter from Q.
Campbell, general freight and passenger
agjnt or the St. Louis. Kort Scott & Wichi
ta Railroad. Kort -Scott, issued the following
opinion, which wilt be of Interest to ship
pers all over tbe Stato :
In your letter of Inquiry dated Hay 26th,
you ask, "Under the law are ail shippers
entitled to equal rates, 1. ., Is the shipper
of a small number or car loads entitled to
the same rate as parties who ship 100 car
loads or morel"
There are three recognized units on which
rates are fixed, viz: the "passenger," tbe
"hundred pounds" aud "car load."
Passenger rates, under the law can be
classified and different fares charged for
first and second class-passage ; one-half fare
for children or parties in charge of stock ou
freight trains, round-trip tickets, one thou
sand-mile tickets and emigrant tickets, at
reduced rates, as has been the custom here
tofore, hut they must be open to and allowed
all persons who desire to travel under tbe
different conditions; such rates, however,
must not exceed tbe rate charged by law.
No higher unit than a car load is recog
nized by any railroad tariff, and we are of
the opinion that no distinction should be
made simply on the ground of an Increased
number of car loads any one Individual may
ship more than another, and that tbe rale
per car load shall be reasonable and fair,
and open to and allowed one and all alkr.
We admit and believe tbe law recognizes
many conditions of shipment, and admit
of different rates being established, under
the various conditions. For instanco, tbe
railroad companies may make special and
lower rates lor transportation of stock, ma
chinery, goods, ware and merchandise for
exhibition at public fairs, expositions, etc.
for the transportation of household goods,
wares and merchandise for emigrants, for
the distribution of aid on account of some
accident, drouib, or other casualty, and
under other like conditions or similar cir
cumstances that might be enumerated.
The rates fixed and granted under these
circumstances and condition are not In
tended to govern tbe general traflic, but on
ly under special circumstances and condi
tions. General rates are fixed on the unit
which are to govern general traffle and
transportation and such rates a so estab
lished on tbe different classes of freight lu
our opinion must be open to and allowed
all alike without regard to the number of
car toads that may be shipped.
II reduced rate are granted on any elase
they should be allowed to all alike Irom and
to tbe same point.
One of tbe chief source of complaint coo
ing before tbe Legislature last winter was
tbe discrimination in favor of heavy ship
pers and against those furnishing a let
quantity of freight, and it was the purpose
of tbe Legislature to supply a remedy by
the enactment of section ten of the railroad
This question was recently before the Uni
ted State district court lor the northern
district of Ohio, and tbe views herein ex
pressed are In conformity with that decis
ion. Tbe court In that ease, say :
"They (tbe railroads) have been author
ized for the common benefit of every one,
and cannot be lawfully manipulated for the
advantage of any dan at the expense of

THE SCOTT LAW IN OHIO.
Tbe supreme court has decided the Scott

Tbe statute or April 17, 1883, entitled
"An act to further provide against tbeeviis
resulting from tbe traffic In intoxicating II
quor(" and authorizing annual assessments
upon the business of trafficing In intoxicat
ing liquor, is a valid constitutional enact
ment. Tbe provisions ol tbe second sec
tion of tbe statute do not operate where the
real prosperity ou and in which the busi
uess is conducted by a tenant who holds the
premises under a lease lor a term executed
before the passage of tbe statute. Judg
