THE KANSAS MAN.
Tbc Kansas man cannot be suppressed.
lie appears at the most unexpected times
In tbc most unexpected plaits. Whether
as a government appointee in Washington
Territory, a Washington city office bolder,
In Urltish America in charge of lumber
companies, or In Mexico with a gang of
seven hundred men digging forpiecioua
metals, you always find him, sneaking a
good word for our young State, aud proud
to acknowledge that be was a "formerly ol
Kansas'' man. Now he turns up In anoth
er place, for by the dispatches It will be
teen that A. W. Oliver, of Wichita, was
present at the Mississippi river, conference
and was elected one of the vice presidents.
We have no shadow of a doubt but that
Mr. Oliver la well qualified to fill the posl
tlon, aud that he cau tell more about that
turbulent aud troublesome stream than
many mcu who have lived on it all their
lives, for he wouldn't be a true Kansas
nan If he could not.
If, as partially indicated, there Is a desire
to make a new party with tbc Improvement
of this rlv er as one of the main Issues, why
then our Kansas man will be at home; for
if there is anything in this ainful world
that a Kansas man docs delight In, it ia get
ting up new Issues. He ia then on his ovv u
ground at bis best. Isatenworth Tinu:
Wc arc happy to iuform the Timti that
Mr. A. W. Oliver is well uualincd to fill the
position, lie Is a business man of expe
rience, and one of the largest shippers In
tbc State of Kansas, lie is at the head of
the great mills and an elevator at this
point, also at tho head of a heavy lumber
company, besides la President of our
Hoard of Trade, and one of our county
commissioners. He fully realizes the Im
portance of the river aud gulf outlet to
Kansas, aud will be no cjphcr In his hon
orable position. Hut he ia not a politician
aud will probably have nothing lo do with
any political organization outside of the
Up to last week Kansas bu bad Immunity
from severe storms this season, hut last
Monday afternoon several places In the
State suffered. A cyclone struek a section
of country In Wakarasa township, about
three miles southwest of Lawrence destroy
ing in Its track wheat fields, lences, and
everything In Its course. No estimate can
as yet be made of the damage.
All up and down the Kansas Valley the
storm was very severe and considerable
damage was done at different points.
The rain was a quiet one In this section.
Out at Newton, twenty-seven miles north.
the storm was accompanied by much elec
tricity Andrew ITnruh was killed by
lightning one mile northwest of that city
while coming to town, and two boys at a
pasture one mile northeast of the city were
knocked senseless for a time and their
ponies bitched near by were killed.
Friday's tornado, extending from Lin
coln, Nebraska, to St. Louis, did an Im
mense amount ol damage In Kansas and
Nebraska as well as to towns and farms in
western MIsso iri. An Atchison telegram
says there is not an orchard in the northern
portion of the Slate of Kansas or the south
ern tier of counties In Nebraska that has
not felt its effects. The largest forest trees
arc cut off short as with an axe. Grain
stacks are leveled and blown away, entail
ing a severe loss upon farmers. Doniphan
county suffered very cely, many larni
and school bouses being demolished or nu
roolcd, while barns, fences, wheat stacks
and orchards were blown away In hundreds
SOL. MILLER ON WHISKEY.
Tbe Bepubfcans of the new judicial dis
trict created last winter, and composed of
the counties of Butler, Sedgwick, Harper,
Barber and Kingman, are arranging for a
judicial convention, a meeting having been
called at Wichita, August 1st, to take tbe
preliminary steps to put a candidate in tbe
field. Senator Sluss, of Wichita, will be
the nominee, doubtless, if be is a candidate.
We are unable to confirm the surmise.
So far as the Itepublican bar of this city Is
concerned, we have no doubttbey are unan
imous for Mr. Sluas. A number of tbim.ln
fact, are very anxious that be shall no lon
ger lefusn the use ol his name. With tbe
Itcpubllcai Jawyers In tbc district, outside
of this county, he stands equally well. They
not only admire him as a man of worth and
high convictions, but as a lawyer, than
whom fc W in this or any other district in
the State stands higher. He Is wanting in
no single qualification or element and wc
believe bis consent to make the race Is all
that can stand in the way ofbianominntion
when the time comes. Many of the great
est lawy era In the State hav c, ov er and ov cr
again, said that the place for II. C. Sluas
was tbe supreme bench, but wc don't know
that he ccn aspires to that.
The Troy ChUf, thla. week, preaches a
bit of a sermon to bo)s and" young men,
which coutiins solid locs ol wisdom un
der the head or "Il will beat you." Whis
key will beal old business men aa well as
bo)s, piofessionul men u surely as labor-
rs, merchants aa sure aa farmers, as the
reiordi or the years only too plainly show.
The Vhirf2)n :
"Il will bcatyou. It will beat the strong
est and smartest man tint ever lived, if he
gives it a chance. The join gman who
thinks it is smart to drink whiskey, and
w ho burns bis throat and stomach, strangles
himself, and makes his c)cs water, iu order
to learn to drink, then gulps down watcrto
relieve himself, would Tar belter take a
do-c of strychnine. He ia engaging in a
struggle with an eiicni) that will beal him.
No man ever lived that beal whiskey ex
cept by letting it alone. Daniel Webster,
and Stephen A. Douglas, and Dick' Yates,
and thousands of other talented men, tried
to beat it. but went under. 'Ihcrc is a
good deal of humbug in the plea that men
become so en-laved to the habit that Ibe-y
can't quit drinking. Ol course, they have
the appetite, aud aa long aa they feed it.
they aro not quilling; but exercise of will
power and self-denial will accomplish il.
These able and talented men who have
gone so far that they can't quit, arc gener
ally the victims of sclf-concci. They Imagine-
thai the) can keep it up, at-d beat
whiskey ul last; i.nd so they go under. Wc
have known in our life, fully half a dozen
casca of men, generally of ordinary intel
lect, and not reported to have great wilt
power, vv ho w ere sots from their youth up
to tho age of from sixty to seventy years.
Wc bad the evidence of older persona that
they were drunkards when young, and wc
know they were aa old men, and wc know
they have already suffered from delirium
tremens. Yet at thai advanced age they
quit drinking, and stuck" to it, and lived a
number ol years afterward, and died sober
men. 1 et who can estimate the amount of
misery they cnduied during all tbeso years
or drunkenness, nn-1 the time and money
they Fquandercdr Although they live so
ber for a number of ) ears at the close of
their life, there were certain marks lelt by
their old habits that could not be effaced.
Wc bold that almost any drunkard cau quit

bia appetlto vvith an occasional dram. A
great deal of sport was made of Mora, c
(ret ley, because be said the only way lo
iiaumc specie pa)meuts, waa to resume.
Yet there was wisdom in the rcmaik, and
be stated the case cxaetlv. It loiildn't be
done by discussing it, and fixing for It, and
talking about it. So with miittlng drink

INVASION OF RAILROAD TERRITORY.
IT there ia any State iu the Union more
torn up about railroads and railroad build
ing than i Kansas just now, wc have Jet
to learn ol It; and the probable outcome ol
what looks like an attempt on the part of
tho Missouri Pae-illc to invade the territory
or the Santa l'u and Union Pacific: roads ia
jusl now very interesting. It certainly
looks as though .lay Gould his his claw in
tho wool of both these roads, and his eye
longingly set on tho business that for so
many yeara they hav o been (hums In con
trolling. II. M. Hoxlc, ilrstv lie president
of tho Gould southwestern system, is au
thority Tor tho state mint thai Gould ia
backing both tho St. lands, Ft. Scott &
Wichita and tho Topeka.Sallna.t Western.
In the light of recent events it icrtalnly
secms aa if Mr. Hoxlc U well posted.
The SI. Louis, I't. Scott .t Wichita road
will prove a lot uiidabte rival to tho Sauta
Ye, and the Tupeka, Sallm .t Western will
serve to hold both the S iota l'o and Unlo-i
Pacific level. Inasmuch as a Missouri Pa
cific man. Miller, la superintendent of
tbc St Louis, i't. Scott & Wichita, placed
Ihcrc by the. Missouri Pacific to operate it
aa a pal t or its s) stem, tbo consolidation
having been pcfecled, il may be act down
aa a Tact that Gould ia on band and means
business iu that part or the country. As
to tbe Topcka, S-vltna & Western, rumor
only councils iho great American railroad
king with Its future, but that rumor la
based on such authority aa wc have given
above Mr. Hoxlc. With his St. Louis,
rt. Scott A. Wichita road, Mr. Gould haa
already sent his trains into the latter city,
and that he Intends to push on aud Invade
the rich territory of that part of the state
U evidenced by tho fact that ho Is survey
ing aa rapidly as possible west through
Sedgwick "and Kingman counties. The
Santa l"c ia also running aline for a new
branch through the same territory, aud un
less Gould draws In bis colors that section
will ere long have two roads and the Kan
sas larmer will not loac the profit on his
grain and stock by haullnganddrivlngtlfty
and one hundred miles, and even greater
distances. Indeed, the prospect for healthy
competition la very good, and we hope for
the sake of the persistent farmer, who has
alvvaya been kept back by such circum
Miucra aa have existed for years, that the
competition will come. The fanners of
that section arc just now very much wrap
ped up In thce two surveys, and very lit
tleonly enough for Immediate necessities
or thla year's crops will be disposed of
until tbc railroad probabilities settle down
into facts or vanish Into tbc air.
Willi the Topcka, Sallna & Western,
which Mr. Hoxlc says he t backing. Gould
can make blin-clf better known to Kansas.
Aa la well known the original survey, and
that on vv bidi tbc road la now being con
structed, cuts between the Union Pacific
and Santa J'c. the road thus being; a com
petitor or both. With this road added to
hla system, Gould can connect it and give
belter aud stronger competition by the con
struction of another and short Hue forming
a junction with the Missouri Pacific, mak
ing u through system to tho eastern mark
ets. As tho Trnut has always held, railroads
should be tbc friends and not the oppress
ors of business; they should encourage de
velopment by liberality Instead of creating
dissatisfaction and rctanling tbe growth of
industry and agriculturo by exacting what
-unfortunately they arc oltcn in a position
to demand. Such competition as tbe above
schemes would briug about would make
them liberal. The rtforc, whether it is Mr.
Gould or some other man who take tbe
bull by the horns, we hope it will come. It
will do Kansas good. It will benefit ber
farmers, and ber merchants, and ber manu
facturers. And It will uot hurt tbe rail
roads. teaf'Hueitk Tinui.
From the Chicago Inter Ocean.
A CLIMATIC PHENOMENON.
One of tho most interesting and impor
tant features in the development of the
Southwest la tbc undisputed fact that its
rainfall has materially increased with its
settlement. The long columns of crop re
ports published In the Inttr Ocean of Satur
day told of grand harvests gathered fioin
soil that for years was supposed to be worth
less, and there vv as good ground lor that
supposltiou. The wheat crop from four
counties of Central Kansas, Sedgwlck,liut
Icr, Cowley and Sumner, will be from four
to five millions of bushels-, and Sjedgwiik
county alone has 138,000 acres of corn in
splendid condition. This Is from land that
aa iatc as 1S70 yielded nothing, waa consid
ered hopelessly barren, and yet to-day pro
duces' these grand results without irriga
tion. Thero arc heavier, more frequent,
and more regular showers in Kansas aud
New Mexico, and lu fact iu all the trana-
Mls-ouii Stales and Territories, than there
were twenty or even five years ago. The
records of tho meteorologists show a gradu
al but cousislcnt increase in the rainfall
aud an advance of the boundarios of the
agricultural area of tho prairies with the
march ol civilization. As the settlers move
west the desert recedes, aud it will not be
many years before tho necessity for irri;
lion will cease, and the natural moisture of
the ataospherc will be adequate to the re
quirement of vegetation.
In 1815 vegetable could not be grown at
Topcka ; and all attempts at gardening by
the soldiers of tbc frouticr posts were fail
ures. In 1870 tbe same conditions exlated
at I.arued, where to-day are thousands ol
acres of waving corn, and in 1879 nothing
could be raised at Fort Dodge, where now
aa large aud prolific crops cau be produced
aa any where In Ohio or Illinois-. In New
Mexico and Colorado the annual rainfall is
increasing, and the Archiabop, whose mag
ulficcnt garden at Santa Fe is the delight of
visitors, has a record covering a period of
lorty years, which demonstrates tbo fact
There arc various theories to account lor
this phenomenon. Some argue that the
building of railroads aud telegraph lines
establishes a metallic connection between
tho moist climates and the dry, along which
electric currents aro conveyed, but this is
scarcely capable of demonstration. Others
believe that the earth is undergoing a cli
matic change through the lntluence of plan
etary disturbances, but this Is merely guess
work. The most intelligent and reasonable
explanation is that tbc turning of the sod
tends to increase tbc moisture of Hie atmos
phere, which, in its turn, produces clouds
and lain. Tbc soil is sandy, and absorbs
the rainfall so rapidly that tbe turf docs uot
retain it long enough lo permit of its evap
oration, and, when it has soaked through
once, the sod acts as a shelter from the sun
and wind. That there arc vast reservoirs
of water under the soil, held by the sub
strata ol clay and sandatone, ia shown by
the frequent springs aud the success of the
aitcslan well system. Plowing deprives
these reservoirs of their turfy protection,
and tbc sun sucks the moisture back into
Hut all theories aside, the glad fact exists
that rain follows agricultural progress, and
ia limited or abundant according to the cul
llvatcdarca. The land that Is now tit only
for pasturage, and incapable of bearing
ciops without Irrigation, will Iu time fur
nish faruis for those who have uot already
becu provided for, and the area that cannot
lie titled will be comparatively small. The
"Great American Desert," which upon the
maps of forty years ago, stretched from the
British boundary to tbc Illo Grande, has
dlappcarcd, and its area is now doited with
nourishing towns and fertile faruis. The
portions of Arizona aud Utah which arc to
day con-iilered irredeemable may, lu like
niauuer, with the advancement of civiliza
tion, prove the deception of appearances,
and demonstrates the- wisdom of the Crea
tor who formed nothing that ia without
value to man.

On Thursday the atlorucy general of Kan
sas commenced two quo warranto suits
against the Kansas Pacific and Union Pa
cific railroad companies, which were di
rected to be brought by a house concurrent
resolution, passed by the last legislature.
The suit is to forfeit the franchises of tbe
Kansas Pacific road, because of a failure to
perform certain dutica and because of the
consolidation with the Union Pacific. The
supreme court will probably have the argu
ment at the September term. A decision
In favor or tbe State would have the effect
of making it tbc owner or the Kansas Pa
cific road, aa the attorney general's quo
warronto petition cuda as follows:
"Aud the said cttomey general prays
that upon a duo hearing hereof, the said
respoudonl company be adjudged to have
forfeited all ita rights, liberties and fran
chises, and to be listed from tbc same,and
that the said corporation bo thereupon dis
solved; and the said attorney general fur
ther prays, that It be further adjudged that
the said franchises, granted to defendant
by tbe State, have become relinquished,
abandoned and forfeited to tbe State of
Kansas, and that the same be resumed to
the State, and that the State lake possession
of the said railroad, with all Ha spurteu

The Itepublican prohibitionists and the

A BIB BANK.
The Emporia Sru$ take m to task about
the showing of Wichita's bank deposits of
last week, and tries to belittle the fact that
four or Wichita's banks bare on deposit
over one half million dollars, while the Em
poria National Bank bu )73232.36. That
fact does not burt our feelings, for it baa
been but a week or to since the Commcn-
wttllh showed that tbe Emporia National
had more money than any bank In tbe Stat
of Kansas. Tbe Stmt intimate that we
bad better blow about something else.
Well, we do Ibis week a be will see by re
ferring to another column. Look at our
wheat, corn and oat for instance. Tbe
Emporia National i very rich, tbe strong
est financial concern in this Slate, but that
fact need not detract from our boast that
few towns in tbe west can snake tbe show
ing made by tbe Wlchtta bank.
Extracts Taken From the Monthly Report
of the State Board of Agriculture.
Wc are Indebted to Jlajor Wm. Sims for
advance sheets of the monthly crop report
for .luce from which wc take the following
interesting information :
Of the eighty-one organized counties,
seventy-six have returned to the secretary
of this board their abstracts of asessor'a
rolls lor US3. From these abstracts It la
discovered that the area of winter wheal
sown in the fall of 1S02, not only did not
decrca-e, but Increased nearly It per cent,
over the previous year. In the first quar
terly report ol this board it was stated that
the area was ie-sa than the year before by 4
per rent. This conclusion was arrived at
by a careful compilation ol reports from
ov cr 400 correspondents, representing cvery
organlzed county in tbe State.'The harvest
of 1892 so exceeded the most sanguine ex
pectations, and was so profitable to tbc
farmers of the Mate, that there la little
doubt arrangements were being made to
Increase the area largely, poaslhl) to the
point reached iu 1SS0, when there was a
wheat breadth ol 2,215,')37 acres. The ex
tremely dry weather at plowing and seed
ing time deterred many from attempting
what had been contemplated, and under
tbeao circumstances It would be very nat
ural for correspondents to underestimate
the area put in. Weather favorable to
sowing occurred late in the scaaA, and al
thouge without much hopes of success, an
additional area vv aa sow n. The Increase in
area over last year la 199,811 acres, or 14
per cent. Of this area, 151,331 acres, or
nearly ten percent, of tbc entire breadth,
failed to come through the severe winter In
a paying condition for harvesting, and was
consequently plowed up in the spring and
put to oilier Use, leaving 1,513,9s.") acres to
be harvested, or J9,24'l acres more than
reached ban est the year before. The
southeastern aud extreme western por
tions of the State suOcrcd the more serious
ly from the ilgoroua winter. Tbc counties
of Cherokee, Crawford, Uourbon, Ncosbp,
Labette ami Montgomery, lying in the
southeastern corner, out of a combined
area of 171,000 acres, lost 43,957, or twenty
five per cent. The counties of Uarton, El
lis, Ford, Pawnee and Tiusscll, having an
area sown ol 1S!,'.'01 acres, had 2.1,700 acres
vvlutcr killed, or a loss of 11 per ccpt.
All reports of correspondents on the corn
crop arc based upou the condition of last
year's crop at this lime. The northeastern
aud cast-central portions of the State re
port a condition below tUat of last year.
The cold spring aud heavy rainfall retard
ed the growth of tbc plant, aud iu a lew
counties, notably Doniphan, lirovvn. Atch
ison, Leavenworth and Johnson, the spring
Hoods being unusually high, have totally
destroyed a large per cent, or the acreage.
The condition iu the sections named is
about 15 per cent, below what it wxa at
this time one year ago. Correspondents
from these localities are sanguine, bow-
ever, that the crop will eventually equal, if
not exceed, that of 1SS5, for tho weather is
becoming more propitious, and tbc plant la
already regaining much of tho lost ground.
Ail other portions of tbc State report the
crop In excellent condition, lniieb better
than last year. The Stale aa -i whole haa
as good a prospci t for a corn crop as this
I lino lat year, and possibly a little better.
Encouraging reports come "from all sec
tions aa to the pcrfoimance of the plant, ita
wonderful growth, the superior stand and
excellent color. The increase in acreage aa
compared with ltx2, ia not nearly so large
as has been aiitlc-pated. Heporta of cor
respondents for the months of April and
May iudicatc an increase in the State of
from 17 to 20 per cent., but the returns ol
the assessors make the increase but 4 per
cctat. or 220.S1G acres. The area for the
State ia 4,&'il.042 acres.
The oat crop waa so satisfactory last
year that a largely Increased area was
sown this spring. The acreage last year
waa the largest ever sown In the State, but
tbc acreage this year exceeds it by 151,150
acres, or au increase of nearly CO per cent
All through the season reports have been
uniform lu all parts ol the State as to the
condition, no one reporting adversely. Tbe
average yield for the State, 41.31, is the
largest in our history, and taken in connec
tion with the largely increased area, gives.
almost a phenomenal product for so voting
aStato as Kansas, it being a million bushels
In excess of the entire wheat crop- Tbe
drr weather or tbc last forty days obtain
ing in western Kansas, reduced the yield
somewhat In that locality, but the area
thus affected is small, aud tbe State yield
does not suner ruucu in consequence
The frosts of early snring did more in
iurr to the annle crop than was anticipat
ed at the time. In the northern hair of
tbe State, tho early apple crop will be ex
ceed ingly light, possibly a third of a crop,
while late apples will make three-fourths
of last year's crop. The southern half is
In much better condition in this respect
ful! avcrace crop or apples being looked
for. The dlscouragiug reports heretofore
received concerning the peach crop, are
fully corroborated thla month. Tho crop
may be called a failure, although some
peaches will bo gathered in favored locali
ties. Cherries, now being gathered, arc
unusuallr beavr as to vleld. and tbe quail
ty likewise surpasses previous crops. All
small fruit compare favorably with an
avcrace vear. crapes especially nromlsin:
a good crop. Fruit tree In tbe western
portion of the State, not yet of sufficient
age to bear, are in healthy and thrifty con-
