That llitenieu has been misquoted. Hut
ItV no difference, such conversation arc
liable lo be misunderstood. N'c only al
lude to it now toeniphasl.c the leading Idea
by sajlng that the 1:a;i.k will lie with the
parly to long as it holds- to Its present com
manding ideas, though It Is whipped eery
fall In this county for ten cars to come.
Those who desire parly patronage, or pow
er or office, more than I'uc triumph of car
dinal essentials, such as are potent rerun
measured excellencies, may figure and may
trim, een boll or join that thoroughly sel
h'sh organization known as democracy, and
they may, for the nonce, win, a did Click
last fall, but such vlctoilc must be short
liied and at a retributive cost.
The democratic leaders of Sedwick coun
ty are calculating largely on a disaffection
which Is to carry Into their ranks and to the
support of their candidates a class of Kc
publlcann who oted for fillck last tall.
They have gone so fat In their Impudence
as to represcnl that the Kaci.k would not
support a ticket that wa wholly made up
of prohlli'.llnnisU. These remnants of the
antebellum ln have had a glimpse of
power, and some of whom line tasted the
sweets of office in a small way, have tried
to pledge Itepuhllcau to a coalition In cer
tain vculs, promising slops sweetened to
a Itcpublcan taste. Ah we have always
ilaimcd, prohibition is not and need not
necessarily be a party question, and ceu it
It was at one time, it Is a law now, and the
party which arrajs Itself against law, other
than by seeking It" repeal In a legitimate
and peaceful manner, Is not an honest par
ty, and will sooner or later get left, l'rohl
bltlon Is not only a law by act of the Legis
lature, but a law of the people, a funda
mental law, and can only be repealed by the
people themseltc. While the Kaoi.k has
not believed that prohibition was the best
means for the fiiithcranee of temperance,
and has said so, jet ll Is for temperance and
the enforcement of all law, whatever ex
treme men may say to the contrary, or what
ever enemies mi either side may represent.
What Democrats say of it upon the one
liniid or extreme prohibitionist upon the
other, will neither make nor unmake its
past record or change the convictions or
lite or its editor.
While upon the question of this fall's
campaign, we will say, and we believe wc
voice the convictions of the best Itvjiukll
cans of the county, or a large majority of
them, that there Is no particular danger
from democratic jobs, or Irom dissensions,
if Kcptibllcans will simply discharge their
duty at the primaries and in the conven
tion. All that Is necessary to an old-time
victory is a lull representation and a ticket
above reproach or just criticism. Nominate
a ticket consisting of men who, by their
ov n Inherent ami acknowledged worth, who
by their I ersonal standing and life, and by
their personal records, command the confi
dence and lespect of ever body, and there
cannot be found euough of (illekism and
sorcheadisui combined in the county to de
feat It Neither nullilieis or rcpudlators ol
any suit ate wanted, but simply men of Ir
reproachable character who will discharge
their sworn duties as honorable officers,
fearlessly and openly.
THE GREAT PRESBYTERIAN DIVINE
A Letter From Dr. Barrows.
The Emporia Aw. In referring to the
Kaolf.'s reminiscences of a "formerly of
Kansas" man, says:
"One of Chicago's most famous preach
ers was a resident of Osage county The
Itarrows family consisted of the father,
mother and two brothers, John 11. and Wal
ter. Of Walter Barrows.we have not heard
In a long. We remeber that he looked lUe
the finer and more refined picture of Shak
spearc. John II. Harrows, when living In
Kansas, was not estimated at his true value
He went away from here, and 'rose right
up.' He went to Paris, was stranded by
the failure or his bunkers, but tortunately
the regularly ministering clergyman at the
American chapel desired a vacation, and
Mr. llcrrows took his place until be was
ready to proceed on his journey. Return
ing to this country he took charge of a fine
church at Lawrence, Massachusetts, then
went to Hostou, and thence came to Chica
go, where he now sits In the top jow."
lu this connection It will not be improper
to give our readers a letter Irom Dr. liar
rows which refers, in a plcasaut vein, to
some of his Kansas experiences, and which
tells of the whereabouts of several men
who were Indcntlficd, more or less, with
the earlier hUtory of Central Kansas :

OVER IN MISSOURI.
for don iiright cool Impudence, probably
the last week's action of the Democratic
inauagcis ol thl-county was never shot
ahead of. The presumption of the little
crowd, whoe members never dreamed of
statesmanship or political management be
lore, and who never aspired above a curb
tone discussion, but who now throw their
democratic legs up on a democratic govern
or's tabic and address bis democratic excel

tills class ol chickens, who have so sudden
ly blossomeil out Into wonderful, acute
statesmen In their own estimation had
been setting a whole nest full of eggs.
The Republican parly of Sedgwick county
Is an organization which they can twist to
their own purpose a readily as they could
drive a flock of ducks to water in their
Imagination. The average Itepuhllcau, es
pecially such Republicans as were opposed
to tbc reiiominatioii of St. John, they
think, they ah-olutcly own. Kor weeks
this crowd lias been looking as wise as
stuffed owls. Now and then they held a
quiet caucus lu which the whole thing was
Invariably "Uxcd " One of the wonderful
and startling schemes of this vcaly outfit
was developed last week. A- mysterious
circular signed, 'Committee,' and pur
porting to have been Issued in the interest
of liberal Republicans was as mysteriously
circulated to the hands of those whom
these nubile managers thought could be
trusted, calliug for a meeting at Ragle Hall
last Saturday. The hour fixed for the
meeting found the coterie of prodigies as
sembled In another room awaiting the Is
sue of their astonishingly cute contriving.
Among the many neat little designs upon
simple hearted and distracted Republicans
was a combined ticket In which that old,
crippled Republican soldier, Hank Heiser
mati, whom the Republicans nominated and
elected last fall, and whom they will nom
inate and elect again this fall, without
questiou, was to be used for a bait on their
sneaking democratic hook. Another grand
eopanetat vt these ulick goslings was to
look wise, and talk big about the "govern
or's'' majority In this county last fall, and
how a few extremists were to hopelessly
rupture the Republican party in the com
ing contest in which the Democrats had a
clear and open victory already; but, for
the sake of barmouy, the Register of Deeds
would be conceded to oldllaukllciscrroan.
Ah to what becamn of this game, wo re
fer those who can't guess easy conuun
drums, lo Horace Ciipenter and a few
other old timers, who played the Innocent
ducks for these straddlo bug managers that
Imagine they know- a party squall because
they happened to be once caught In a polit
Democratic Missouri seems to be catching
to the spirit of the age. The Kansas City
Journal sav's :
The saloon keepers ol Missouri must di
vest themselves of the idea that anybody is
disposed to prosecute them. They must
east aside all thought that the business they
are engaged In stands in the same relation
to society and to the law that the occupa
tion of the baker, the barber, the butcher,
or the provision dealer docs. It Is not so.
The drinking of liquor is by no means a
necessity. It Is more of a luxury than any
thing el-c. If that designation pleases any
body better. The people will bo just as
well off If they are deprived of their drinks
on Sunday. Their health will not be in
any way injured, and the chances are that
thcyvviirhe Infinitely better off In pocket.
Hut the various occupations wc have named
above do, to a great extent, minister, not
only to the convenience, but to the necessi
ties of the people. Resides, none ol these
occupations disturb, or arc the cause of
disturbance to anybody, and they are open
only long enough to accommodate the peo
ple. If the saloon-keeper will consider the
matter calmly and carefully he will come to
the conclusion that the Sunday closing law-
Is directed particularly at his business, and
to no other, aud if heobejs it cheerfully he
places himself in the position of a prompt
ly law abiding citizen, and he would avoid
fines and be better off In pocket in the end.
The advice of any attorney to disregard
the law Is bad advice, and purely selfish.
Wo have pot the slightest prejudlccagainst
the saloon-keeper, and when wo tell him
that there Is now prevalent a public senti
ment that cannot be defied with impunity,
we are only stating a fact that must be ap
parent to every intelligent and disinterest
REPUBLICAN FREE TRADERS.
There arc some men in the Republican
party who sincerely believe in free trade as
a principle as against a tariff for protection.
Hut such men despise the subterfuge of
tariff for revenue or tariff for incidental
protection as promulgated by certain Dem
ocratic fence straddlers. To the former
class belongs Henry Ward Hecchcr, vvho.in
a lato interview In Chicago, wisely re
"1 see co reason why the Republican par
ty should not go Into power again. It is a
protectionist party and It will fight for pro
tection, and although I am an anti-proteo-tloulst
I will vote for it. I cannot subscribe
to one principle of the party, but I believe
that the adoption of the other principles is
wholesome for the country. The leaders
of the opposing party are incoherent In
their expressions and have no selected
principles, except those general principles
which wc all cheerfully admit. Thclrspcc
lal principles am either insignificant or Im
practicable. The signs arc that In New-
York and Pennsylvania the Republican
leaders will lay aside their quarrels, In
which event the party will sweep the country."
ANYTHING FOR OFFICE.
Democracy will do anything for office,
even to the repudiation of theirparty uamc
and party organization. When once In,
no matter by what hook or crook, It was
the Democratic party and Democratic
brains that did It. They will even claim
the election of auy independent as a Dem
ocratic victor-. Thry now claim the elec
tion of MIm llentnn. two years ago, at a
Democratic triumph. If they bad succeed
ed in beating Hank Heiscrman. for whom
they have so suddenly developed a won
derful affection, they would bare claimed
Mrs. Rns.ell as a Democratic triumph.
Their little game to divide Iho Republican
vote this fall, aud their promises and agree
ments to share honors aud profits with
such Republicans as will embark In an in
dependent movement, is probably the thin-
rat thing that has attracted the attention of
the people since the failure ol tbc Glucose
The Vi, of Wellington, says that Prof.
Marvin examined eight females and seven
males for admission to the State University.
It docs not say how many passed. Prof.
Smith found in Wichita but two applicants
boys, neither of whom passed. For
years past our State educational institu
tions have been little more than high
schools run largely In the interest ol the
towns where located, which localities fur
nished the greater number of scholars.
Hut it would seem now that the University,
at least, has gone to the other extreme. To
meet the demand for a more thorough and
higher standard the school has been boost
ed so far above its former self that a senior
of last year makes but a moderate fresh
man for this. The University It on stilts
high stilts and we fear she will burst of
tbc fullness and over adequacy of the
pertnel of Its regency. When It was so
suddenly discovered that Dr. Marvin knew
too little to run the re-organized institu
tion we predicted as much.

The two following optnlone promulgated
by the Board of Railroad Commissioner
last week, will doubtless prove of interest
to many of our readers, and are therefore
presented In full:
J. F. Goddard, tq., Traffic Manager A., T.
Dear Sik : Tbc following it a ropy of
the decision rendered In the case In which
J.J. Hlddleston it complainant :
The party complaining in this instance
states that he it charged, on shipments of
grain from Eudora to Kaniat City, two
cents per hundred pounds over and above
the rate charged on grain shipped over the
same line when consigned to elevators.
Ills grain was consigned to the Zenith
The railroad company admits the charge
and Justifies the same by showing that
when grain Is delivered to elevators, It Is,
as a rule, promptly disposed of, requires
less switching and less labor In every way,
at our Missouri river stations, than when
delivered on the track.
It is further represented to ut that If
shipments of grain for track delivery at
Kansas City were permitted, there would
be a great portion of the time when the
company would be obliged to refuse to re
ceive grain at all, from the fact that the
track would be blockaded at points of des
tination, on account of the slowness of
These considerations are entitled to
great weight. They present a possible
state of things which Is likely to entail
great loss on the company by Impeding its
business, and Inconvenience on tbc public
by abridging the company's carrying facil
ities. It i, on many accounts, highly de
sirable (hat shippers should avail them
selves ol the facilities provided for the
rapid loading and unloading or their grain
ou and off the cars. During the busy grain
shipping season It is possible to supply
every demand for cars as promptly as they
are needed. Every unneessary detention
of cars at the place when the freight Is to
loaded and unloaded renders the company
still less liable to meet tbc public needs.
Resides, It Is not fair nor reasonable that
the shipper who, to avoid and save elevator
charges, unloads his grain by methods that
detain the car upon the track at the place
of delivery for twelve hours, should be
charged the same and no more than ore
who, by paying for the use of modern
methods', detains the car but one-fourth of
Rut we think the practice ol taxing tide
track deliveries by an Increased rate on
shipment, is one that the law does not
sanction. This Is a service that should be
done Tor all on equal terms, under similar
circumstances and conditions; and If one
man has provided himself with facilities of
his own, or any other means than by eleva
tors, by which he can and does relieve the
car of his freight In as short a time as the
same Is done at the elevator, he should not
be taxed for not taking his grain there.
Tho extra tax should be placed upon those
who consume car facilities by unreasona
ble detention, and all detentions, especially
in a buy season, caused by a failure to em
ploy proper facilities lor unloading, it un
reasonable. We arc of the opinion that the more just
method and one more in consonance with
the spirit or the law would be to tax de
tention of the cars, by way ol demurrage,
beyond such time as the company shall lix
as reasonable, having reference to all the
facilities available at the point ol destina
tion. We think rurther that It would be
proper for the company to exact payment
lu advance of a specific .amount upon all
shipments of grain to be delivered else
where upon itt track than at elevators, or
mills or warehouses, Immediately upon itt
line hav Ing dumps, elevating or other facil
ities for the rapid handling of grain. The
demurrage or any portion of it to be re
funded to the shippers iu proportion as he
does or does not detain the car beyond the
minimum fixed period. In the case of the
complainant, he shipped to the Zenith
Mills, and it docs not appear that he Is
chargablc with unreasonably detaining
cars, and we think the rate ot two cents ex
tra in the rate to bim was excessive.

DearSik: The following Is acopyol
the decision rendered by the Board of Kail
road Commissioners In the case therein set
InUte matter of complaint made by (J.R.
Anderson, of Mabon, Kansas, that the
charge of 5 per car made by the Missouri
Pacific Railroad Company for the switch
ing of coal over one-half mile of their
track, at Fort Scott, from the junction of
the Missouri Pacific Railway to the Saint
Louis, Fort Scott & Wichita Railway, to be
transported over the latter road,ls excessive
and cxhorbitant, the Board finds from a
careful Investigation that for the same ser
vice at the same place the charge of fifty
cents per car Is made for the transfer of
live stock and $1 per car for the transfer of
The Board further finds that no extra
power or force Is employed by the Missouri
Pacific Railway to perform the service in
addition to that employed in operating the
usual freight trains on their line. In view
of all the facts and evidence obtained, the
Board decides that an amount not to ex
ceed S-2 per car, for such transfer of coal,
Is a reasonable and proper charge to be
made by the Missouri Pacific Railway.
The Board is of the opinion that such
switching expense should not be borne by
the shipper, but thattherailroadt, at points
whero they center and receive freight from
connecting lines, should provide such facil
ities for the transfer of shipments, by con
nections or otherwise, as will in no msnner
discriminate against shippers engaged in
business on connecting lines of rosds. If
this switching expente is paid by the ship
pers on one line and not by those on another
It becomes a tax on their business and a
discrimination which should not exist.

different lines at Ft. Scott as to avoid these

THE CITY OF RUNNING WATER.
One of the editors or the Fort Scott Daily
Monitor, who spent a day in our city and
who seemed to have been greatly surprised,
The following article is respectfully writ
ten for the benefit of those who tave never
been there. The bright stsr of the west
actually shines lorth lo all its glory, at the
confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas
rivers, in the center oi the great wheat belt
of the continent. Because you have not
seen it, do not doubt, perhaps you have
never seen the msjettle cities of the Old
World, nevertheless they are there, shed
ding forth their influence and power, to
alto you must grasp by faith the coming
city of the great west, Wichita, the city of
Twelve years ago marks its birth, when
the red msn gave way to the white and per
mitted him to better the sltustion, by his
superior abilities, and changing the scene
from the heroic deeds of border, brawny
armed bravery to that of the peaceful
home, sweet home character. We would
like to go Into detalls.statls tlcs,old settlers,
etc., all of which their proper credit be
longs, but time will not permit. We sim
ply want to tell what we have seen and
what we found on our first visit, viz: A
grand city of 10,000 people, some of the
finest and most extensive business houses
of the west, located principally on Douglas
avenue and Main street; the most enter
prising set of business men we have ever
met, sharp, shrewd, cordial, looking after
the opportunities to develop their business,
until in the near future, when tbey go east
to the seaboard cities for goods, tbey will
only need to mention from Wichita, Kan
sas, and command the full respect of the
merchant princes. Had we a political ob
ject in view wc Would stand in with the
city officers, of whom Uncle Bill, the mayor,
leads tbem all, and would speak of their
noble deeds, the fruits of which may be
seen in the wster works, gas works, street
cars, mills, elevators, foundrles,fine streets,
etc., but we are aiming only to tell of their
being such a city as Wichita, to those who
have beard of, but never seen it. The new
railroad, chosen by the more aesthetic to be
called the Sunflower route, but properly
speaking the St. Louis, Ft. Scott Wichita
railroad, has just reached the city, and
with Its coming, up springs the boom nat
urally belonging to the advantages of the
situation. The new and Independent rail
road runs from Fort Scott to Wichita, a
distance of 153 miles, making the shortest
route from the latter city by 48 miles to St.
Louis, 40 miles to Chicsgo and one mile to
Kansas City. Trains are running regularly
and already quite a good share of business
is going and coming over the new short
route, which is destined to bo the popular
line to this wonderful city. We predict for
Wichita, in the near future, a place second
only to Kansas City. The opportunities it
offers in all branches ot business will be
sought after speedily, and the new road
will be tbc important link that will open
the chances for all who come and go to
PR06RESS AND POVERTY.
To lit Editor of tit FagU :
Allow me to call tho attention of your
readers to a comparatively new work on
political economy, by Henry George, enti
tled "Progress and Poverty," and now
published in cheap form by Sovell & Co.,
N. Y. It has already run through Tour
editions, and has met with au extensive
sale in England as well as in this country.
The London Timet devoted a four-column
leader to a review of its startling radical
doctrines, lu which it declares that "future
political economists must either refuse, or
accept," a privilege never before accord
ed to an American book.
It is pronounced by many of the ablest
journals of this country and Europe as
"The greatest book of the nineteenth cen
tury." It is certainly the most profound
diagnosis of the social and industrial dis
eases of the age that has yet appeared.
He grasps his subject with fingers of
steel. His analysis is clear as sunlight, and
his style profoundly analytic, vigorous and
logical. It is a book for the million and
To the "Irrepressible conflict" now rap
idly advancing, between monopoly and
labor, it will become what Tom Palne's
"Age of Reason" was to the political rev
olutions that took place in this country and
In France toward the close of the last cen
tury. Compared with his calm, clear, exhaus
tive and masterly elucidation of the social
and industrial diseases of the age. the sol
emn vaticinations of Thomas Carlyle ap
pear like the turgid, overstrained and
egotistic gush of a conceited school boy.
The reading public will find the book in
cheap form at the Postofflcc Book Store,
and at Harding A Co.'s. Price, 20 cents.

DEATH OF MRS. JAMES LANE.
HARD ON THE SALOONS.
John Martin, appointed Judge by Gov.
Gllck, for a Democrat shows' the least
mercy for the saloon men of any judge in
the State. Last week he ileclded in the
case of the State vs. Zimmerman, that sa
loon keepers, who have been fined in Us
police court, or have been tried there and
acquitted, may be arraigned for the same
oHente In the district court.
It is reported that ex-Judge Stevens, of
PaU, ha preferred charges against United
State Marshal Simpson, and !w1tl make a
' -4gkt ssc Ms removal before tee Depsrtaseat
of JneiUe at Washington.
' iie1akssMsa sK before Judge UeCrary
t.Ke4Mk. Jwa, will not fee JeeMedbt-
.Jjsft tke Mb ft Avgatt. ' s
There are a few Hepubllcan papers in the
north part or the State having a 'duck fit"
for fear tbc llepublicans will hold a judicial
convention and nomtuate a man who will
beat John Martin forjudge. Their position
it illogical for the reason that Judge Martin
is first a politician and second a judge. The
Monitor commends his course as judge, but
as a politician be is co better than Gllck,
Tom Moonlight and a hundred others, ne
helped elca Gllck, and Gllck is busily en
gaged In nulllfvlng the laws of the Stste as
fas as bis Influence will go, and IfSIr. Gllck.
Is re-nominated Judge Martin will lay down
his judicial ermine long enough to re-elect
him, if possible, to a position which he will
continue to abuse just as be is now doing.
The position of the Commonvealik upon this
question is a sound one, and If its policy is
defeated the Hepubllcan party and good
government will sustain a defeat In Kansas.

SANTA FE BRANCHES.
The Santa Fe has built a large number or
branch roads, and absoroed others which
are known as branches, among tbem a new
road running from Leavenworth to a To
peka connection. The 7'imei, or Leaven
worth, says that It "has heretofore remark
ed that the Santa Fe has no better paying
branch than the Leavenworth, Topekaet
Southwestern branch which, with little
attention, brings In a larger return than
others to which grealcraUentloB Is given."
The 7m Is badly ot In It ortiaasle. The
branch known as the Wichita and Sosth
westera, nuting from Wichita to a can
nection tt)t the atsJn Mae at Newtoa, has
paid mora in gross receipts for ten years
than any breach owned by tsHtftaatala
eampany, and has pW Urfar net prel
than any 17 asNo T
hraneh owned by that compssg.'- ',-
There arc thousands in Kansas who will
regret to hear of the death ol. the widow of
Gen. Jim Lane. There is hardly an old
settler in the State that did not know her
personally. We take the following from
Sunday's issue of the Kansas City Journal:
She died at Columbus, O., Saturday, and
her remains will be brought back to Law
rence for interment, the funeral taking
place Tuesday afternoon. She bore no un
important part in the great struggles In
which her daring and aggressive husband
figured, though, as is'ususlly the case with
the wives of great men, her light was dim
med by the luster of his fame. Peculiarly
adapted to those stirring times, and pos
sessing a wonderful magnetism lor the dar
ing pioneers who were then making history
in Missouri and Kansas, Jim Lane won a
name which is justly enrolled among those
called great, and at the same time is of that
unique character that the age and country
in which he figured could alone produce.
His wife came with him to their homestead
at Lawrence, and with a bravery equal to
his. was bis faithful, self-sacrificing com
panion through those years ot strife. Law
rence has been her home almost ever since
she and her husband settled at that point,
and there she will be laid away to rest.
Somebody, who professes to know, has
said the followlngaboutvariouspublicmen:
President Lincoln did not use profane lan
guage. Andrew Johnson could swear and
did swear roundly and fluently. So did
Stanton aud Seward. So, also, Mr. Fessen
den. Henry Wilson, whcnhisfeellngs were
wrought up, as tbey were at Chicago when
Colfax was nominated for vice president at
Chicago, would swear a little oath as though
be was half ashamed of it. General Grant
didn't swear, neither did General Garfield,
Mr. Randall docs occasionally, Judge Kelly
has been known to forget his early religious
training. Attorney General Itrewstcr can
swesr in three different languages. Ell
Perkins says that Don Cameron was never
known to utter a profane word, but Eli Per
kins was never known to tell a wonl of
truth. Oliver P. Morton was determined
In his profanity at times. Mr. Hayes swore
only in bis mind, and then only In the ab
sence of bit wife. Gen. Arthur is too much
of a gentleman to swear.
Andrews' Bazar for August Is by all odds
the handsomest numier ever published. It
Is evident that it has fallen into bands who
know what the ladles want In a Fashion
paper, and know how to publish It. Its
low price (only 91 a year) places it within
the reach of all, whilo its styles, stories
and table of contents generally, compare
very favorably with those of the high cost
Foreign and American publications of its
class. Published by The American Bazar

A terrible catastrophe happened at Balti
more, Tuesday of this week. A pier at a
pleasure retort, where a large number of
excursionists had gathered, gave way, pre
cipitating hundreds of men, women and
children into the water, of which seventy
or eighty were drowned, mostly young men
and young women. It was in the night and
very dark, but sixty-one bodies were re
covered before two o'clock.
