"Everyone knons that when a pupil com
pletes the aboe work he already has a lib

A "profenior" who don't eea know the

is hardly the man to attempt an answer to
CONSPURCATION OF ITS OWN MOUTH.
Our amiable Democratic contemporary Is
getting madder and hotter. It actually
bites its own tongue. Its own testimonials
as to the mos'back oualltics of the "con
temporary' of Thomas Jcffersron" are now
doing the wormwood and gall business In
the r.tann spleen bag. H?a)i tho?o certi

In the habit of indulging in unification and
abuse of a man unjustly and without caue
simply because It has a littlo "difference"
with him about -'somo bonds?" The ques
tion is, did the Beacon lie about Hards dur.
Ing the Hancock campaign, or did It draw
truthful pictures of the tanity and partisan-
ship of his nature? .We all know he Is me
same old mossback partisan the Jitaeon pic
tured him, and mot of us belle c htm to be
the same old bundle of canity the Eeaeon
painted him, and w c bat o the right to take
the testimony of the "leading Democratic
organ of the Southwest" that It is true.
Harris Is a tain old mossback, or the Stacon
Is an unmlttlgated vllllfier of private char
acter. DIDN'T ATTACK HIS INTEGRITY.
The JSeacon says that in git ing a truthful
story or tho lire and career of Amos Harris
in tho late presidential campaign, it did uot
question bis integrity. What did the Bea
eon mean when it spoke oDtiim as a proba
ble candidate for rcprcscntntite as follows :
"For representative we shall favor Judge
Amos Harris, Esq., whose eminent legal at
tainments and dexolion to railroad inttrttti
eminently tit him for tho position. As an
orator, too, ho ritals Demosthenes or Cice
ro or any other man.'
A NATIONAL ISSUE.
Senator Plumb Is in Ohio this week mak
ing speech for the Republican ticket. Next
week he will bo in Iowa. In the latter
State the campaign has practically narrow
cd down to prohlbtlon and anti-prohitlon
with a little tariff for spice. In Ohio it is
license or free whiskey. It really seems
that the Intoxicating liquor question is
last becoming a national party Issue. There
are two strong elements doing all they can
to make It such : tho believers in prohibi
tion and the leaders ot the Democratic par
ty, but for dltcrse reasons.
The term or the United States court at
Wichita lasted only eight days. Judge
Foster summarily closed it last Tuesday,
Icating a large number of criminal cases
ready for Uial to go otcr until the next
term at Fort Scott. If all the future terms
held at Wichita arc to be cut short In the
same manner, they will bo anything but a
contcnlcncc to the people of this part of
the Stato and that portion of the Territory
attached to this portion or Kansas, and the
court will amount to nothing more than an
ordinary police branch of tho national ju
risdiction. Tho tact is, Kansas should be
divided into two judicial districts, with
one term at Wichita and another at Fort
Scott, lor tho trial of cit 11 as well as crimi
nal cases. ColdtrtU Journal.
The Journal obscnatlons are wise and
its conclusions sound. The State should
be dltidcd by the next Congress. The in
terests or both the State and Territory de
mand such a step. Judge Foster said to
us that there would hcrcaltcr be enough
business at Wichita to employ two terms
each or the U.S.District aud Circuit courts
Jim Legate, in his bulldozing speech be
lore the temperance convention,at Topeka,
used the following language in referring to
the prohibition law:
"There are those who belicte it goterns
too much. I tell you the higher the civil
ization the more laws must be enacted and
more vigorously executed, for the weak
will need the more protection and the
strong the greater restraint."
If that were true, tbeu civilization is a
failure and man should learn to go back
ward Instead of forward. The litgber and
more refined the man, the less the need of
laws or or government or any feort. The
perfect man la- a taw unto himself. What
would heaven be if Us inhabitants were
hampered and restrained ty rules. Heaven
is man's ideal, and In heaven there is no
law save the law J love.

At Topeka, last week, there were gather
ed from all parts or Kansa, in convention,
the representatives and leaders of the tem
perance organizations, for the purpose of
comparing notes as to the results of the
j car's work in educating the people up to
the prohibition standard. The convention
vt as large, and in some respects au earnest
one. The leading features, at leatt those
that Interested the readers of the proceed
ings most, were persoual reports and
speeches. The most radical speech wss
delivered by James T. Legate, or Leaven
worth, who abused prohibition workers
and mlnl'sters in particular for want or
bone. Legale went on to tell them Just
how the law could be enforced, and the
duty of each prohibitionist, but from what
we know of the gentleman he, himself, bas
nerc made a single step in the direction
nhich he indicated lor others. Legate Is
a politician by 'profession, and we fear a
demagogue by practice.
The proceedings pf the meeting were

and determination by reading the follow

We. the temperance people of the State

to the State, and should receive the con
demnation of all good citizecs.
Fifth That tve are not only in favor of
the cnlorccment of the prohibition law as
against the liquor seller, but we lavor an
actitc, tlgorous campaign for the purpose
ot inducing men, by appeals to their high
er nature, to cease the habit of drinking.
In other words we arc in favor of prohibi
tion for the liquor seller and moral suasion
for the liquor drinker.
Sixth That we arc opposed to, and pro
test against, any attempt by the Legislature
to strike prohibition from the Constitution,
by submitting an amendment lor the pur
pose of the repeal or the emasculation of
the law already enacted for the enforce
ment of the same.
Jietotttd, That the issue belore us in this
State is : "Shall the will or a majority or
the people as embodied in our constitution
in the prohibition amentment and In the
law to enforce the same be carried into ef
fect, or shall the will or the minority pre
vail in repudiating both constitution and
law i" That we promptly accept the issue
forced upon us declaring our belief that
under a constitutional government nothing
can be more hateful than the tyranny of a
law-defying minority, and our immovable
purpose to resist to the uttermost and the
last a uocinne wnicn smites uown as one
blow the supremacy of law and the sover
eignty of the people.
lhatwe will not aid the electiou of any
person to any office who by word or deed
opposes the execution of the laws on our
statute nook, mciuuing me prouiuitory
That we arc In favor of such amentments
to the prohibitory law is shall remote Irom
It any features that to its friends may seem
unjust in their operations, and we call the
attention of tho people to the fact that the
efforts made iu the last Legislature to se
cure such amendments were opposed and
defeated by the saloon power.
'I hat we express our set ere condemna
tion of officers, jurors and witnesses who
t folate their oaths in order to shelter and
protect criminals, and our hearty approval
of the course ol those who preserve their
personal and official integrity by the dis
charge of their sworn duty under the law.
That the theory of high license, though
sincerely held by some. Is unsound and Im
practicable ; that It is mainly used as a sub
terfuge on the part of the minority to de
feat the will of the majority, and in the In
terest of the saloons, and that itis specially
odious because it discriminates in fat or of
the rich against the poor.
That the efficient labors of the President
of the Union, the Rev. A. I!. Campbell, to
enforce the prohibition laws of the State,
aud especially in the city of Topeka, have
our bas our hearty apnrotal and thanks.
and we pledge him our inditidual support
aud co-operation in tue future in an legiti
mate means necessary to the closing or all
the llnuor saloons of the State.
That as the saloons of the State are pro
tected by some corrupt city governments,
it will be the duty of the next Legislature
to change the laws relating to the form of
our city gotcrnments, so as to provide by
specific statutoforu summary removal of
an oinciais who ueiy tnc constitution anu
laws without waiting for the slow process
or tue common law.
That the thanks of this convention arc
due and are hereby extended to M. V.Van-
Hennctt for his efficient and gratuitous la
bors In the interest or the cause adtocated

"The Old Reliable"
It is uo longer necessary to speak iu ntlccitain terms of the capabilities
of Kansas as a State. She stands pre-eminent among' the aericultural States
of the West the acknowledged queen.
Western States the region comprising the lower Arkansas and Nianescah
Vallej s is to Kansas the garden spot of the State.
The last tcu years have demonstrated beyond questiou that Southern
Kansas is more genial in climate, more bountiful and certain in productions,
than nny other portion of the West. Nowhere else in all our broad land do
these conditions unite in such harmony to make possible the establishment
of the ideal farmer's home. Many such are springing up into living pictures,
and adorn the landscape on every hand.
The projection of two lines of railroad from Wichita west and south
west through the county aud beyond opens up a hitherto practically undevel
oped country, where lands aroslill cheap, and than which there is nothing
better iu the State. Tho ricks of wheat and dark green fields of corn over
laden with heavy ears seen on evert' hand tell tho story of tho value of these
