The Hon. W. H. Gest baring returned
to the city he should announce his
office hours from 8 a. m. to la. m., to
glre the horde of office seekers a chance
to interyiew him on matters of moment.
Now that the congressman has actually
returned to the city the C, B. & Q. may
expect to do a large passenger business
for the next 30 days at least, as members
of the g. o. p. In the lower end of the
district are preparing to move on the city
In force. Several of the more ardent and
hungry have been hovering around the
city for the past week in anticipation of
the congressman's return.
Old-Fashioned Way ot Preparing the
The coloring and decorating of Easter
eggs Is a pleasant employment for young
people. It allows a great exercise of
taste and ingenuity, and prettily decora
ted eggs make a nice Easter favor to send
to a friend instead of the more common
card. Beautiful and really artistic re
sults can be achieved with little money
and the exercise of taste, care and pa
tience. The first step is usually to boll
the eggs hard. They should be put on in
cold water, which should be allowed
to boil gradually; then the eggs
must be removed. A disregard- of this
precaution is apt to result in cracked or
broken shells. Another way is to make a
small hole in each ejid of the egg with a
slender darnin gneedle and blow the con
tents out. These egg shells are much
more delicate and easily broken than the
first mentioned. Still another method is
to remove the contents and fill the shell
with liquid plaster of paris, which soon
hardens and makes a very substantial egg.
The plaster should be mixed with water
until it runs easily. If, after some plaster
is run in the shell, a few shot are added,
the egg will always maintain .an upright
The most simple way to color eggs is
to sew ribbon or calico that will fade
abound them and boil a few minutes.
The skins of the dark red onionB will
color beautiful shades of yellow browns.
Tuci will give shades of crimson, light or
dark, according to the length of time the
eggs are left in the dye. Indigo dis
solved in water to which oxalic acid is
added in the proportion of a teaspoon
tul to a quart of the dye gives a pretty
blue. Names, dates and figures can be
put on eggs after they they are dyed by
tracing the letters or figures with a fine
brush or a pen dipped in oxalic acid . To
tint eggs any shade, use oil paints of
various hues. Roil a piece of soft cotton
cloth into a wad and with this rub the
oil paint on the eggs, being careful to
take only a small quantity at a time on
dauber. Any one who knows how to
paint can decorate these tinted eggs very
handsomely by putting on each some ap
propriate design or moito. For a blue
egg a cluster of lillies of the valley or
snow drops are charming. Another very
suggestive design is a leafless branch
with a crysalis attached and the released
butterfly hovering near. It is wise to
choose irregular letters for the motto;
gold or bronze paint can be used effec
tively in putting them on . Eggs left un
colored and a simple design painted on
the shell are quite satisfactory. A
variety can be made by selecting light and
dark colored eggs and different sizes
from the larger egg of the goose to the
tiny one of the bantam .

No One Should Stop DMiual Outlook.
Arkansas City, Kan., April 19. At 8
o'clock yesterday morning Capt. Hayes, at
the head of bis column, blew a long bugle
blast as a signal for tbe assembled boomers
to stat, and Immediately afterward 1,000
wagons and 5,1)00 men, women and children
began the long and wearisome journey on
the Pawnee trail across tbe Cherokee strip
for Oklahoma. Just before the start was
made Capt. H-jyes made a brief speech to the
boomers, reminding them of their pledge not
to interfere with cattlemen's fences or Indian
villages In the Pawnee and Ponco reserva
tions. The boomers over at Hunnewell and
Caldwell started a few minutes after the Ar
kansas City 'procession.
The Flag Mutt Go Along.
An interesting incident occurred just as the
bugle sounded that gave tbe sigual to march
for the alleged Eldorado. Everybody was
trying to be first, and an exciting race
up and down hill began. Tbe wagon with
the flag got jammed between a tree and
fence, and it might have been in Kansas yet
bad not an old man, whose face was wrin
kled and furrowed, hobbled out into the
middle of the road and arrested the wild
rush of horses and wagon by waving his
arms. "Boys," be cried, pointing to the
wagon bearing the stars and stripes, "some of
us have fit for it. We love it" Instantly
tbe turmoil ceased. Horses were brought to
a full stop and the big line was again motion
less. A hundred men ran to the stalled wagon
and lifted it bodily from between the fence
and tree, and, carrying it out to the road
sent it spinning for Oklahoma, when three
ringing cheers were given for the flag. The
prairie schooners fell in behind it, one after
another, until there was a procession which
emed almost interminable.
Greeted by the Indian Children.
As it passed tbe Cbilloco Indian school lit
tle Indian girls greeted it with waving flags
and huzzas. In a field tieyond the tu-bool was
a camp of Otoe Indians. They had lieen in

In the finery purchases at the dry goods

air of stolid indifference, and the squaw9
scarcely raised their eyes from their simple
camp tasks to view it Tbey did not realize
that the march of civilizatinn and progress
bad begun. It would be nearly impossible to
describe tbe procession iu detail. Old men,
whose wrinkled faces and white beads told
the story of stormy lives, were there by
scores. Pospim of children, some of them
barefooted and bareheaded and nearly all of

The skipper of the neatest schooner of the

Tbey were dressed in becoming calico gowns
and old-fashioned sun bonnets. Tbe girls are
going for homes in Ok'ahoma, and they say
they will not return without one even if they
have to marry boomers. However, they will
have to rely on men to stake a claim, and
when they get it they will rely on a pretty

A Weary March Before Them.
St. Louis, April 19. A cavalryman at
Wichita Wednesday, from Fort Reno, said
that the recent rains bad left the rivers and
trails in an almost impassable condition, and
he considers it impossible for the boomers to
reach Oklahoma by road. This man was
with the Fifteenth cavalry, when, in 1885,
the regiment made the forced march from
Caldwell to Fort Reno, and though every fa
cility was handy and the utmost speed de
manded the troops were six days in travel
ing 110 miles. He describes tbe condition of
the country now to be almost what it was
during that march. The streams usually
having a foot of water are raging torrents,
and between tbe waterways tbe mud is so
deep that wagon-wheels sink in to the hub.
He says that two horses will never get a
wagon through to Oklahoma, and attempts
to cross the river will surely result in calatn
ity. He also anticipates much suffering
from lack of water, as there are few springs,
and tbe streams are now running red mud.
Five Settlers for Every Claim.
Kansas Citt, Mo., April 10. C. N.
Green, traveling passenger agent of the Bee
line, who returned yesterday from a trip
through Oklahoma, says there are already
more than five persons for every claim,
ready to cross tbe line at a moment's notice.
Tbe Cimarron and Canadian rivers are
swollen and running with great force, and
he predicts that many boomers will be
be drowned in attempting to ford them. Tbe
soil in Oklahoma, Mr. Green says, is for the
most part sandy and not more tban one-third
of the land is tillable.

waj company, of Canada, transports coal
and coke under a schedule specifying a total
rate from Buffalo, Black Rock, and Suspen
sion Bridge, in tbe United States, to Hamil
ton, Dundas, and several otber points in
Canida; that tbe published tariff rate for
such transportation from the points named to
Hamilton and Dundas is $1 a ton, but that it
accepts a reduced charge, or allows a rebate

Uncle Samuel Must Not Bother His Head
with IU Solution.
Philadelphia, April 19. The Philadel
phia Inquirer publishes interviews which it
has collected with prominent men and poli
ticians of the southern states. Only men
well known in their sections were applied to,
and to these the following questions were
1. What is tbe southern question!
2. How should it be met to produce the
greatest good to the south I
The idea of Tbe Inquirer was to obtain the
real views of southern leaders upon a sub
ject which is becoming very prominent The
responses nearly all voiced the same senti
ment, that the race problem is tbe great one
to be solved, and that the south should be al
lowed to manage her own affairs without in
terference. Following is a brief summary of
some of the opinions:
Governor Richardson, of South Carolina
The southern question is the race problem.
Shall the African or the Caucasian predom
inate. The solution is in the strict avoidance
by tbe general government of any distinc
tive southern policy, and in leaving to the
states themselves tbe management of their
own domestic affairs.
Governor Fitzbugh Lee, of Virginia Two
distinct races are wrestling with each otber
for political supremacy. The question is,
therefore, whether tbe southern states and
cities shall be retained in the hands of the
white men or whether there shall be a war of
races. The prosperity of both demands that
each state should be allowed to control its
own internal affairs without federal interfer
ence, and to exercise those rights reserved
with great care to the states- by the repre
sentatives of those states who framed tbe
constitution in tbe city of Philadelphia 100
Governor Buckner, of Kentucky There is
no such question. The so-called southern
question seems to be a hot-bed plant of a
northern growth an exotic which will not
flourish in southern soil Such unpatriotic
sectional agitations, whether originating in
the north or south, should not be encouraged
by the people of any section, and tbe injury
resulting from such agitations to the whole
country would be reduced to a minimum if
tbe people of each stute would continue to
attend to their own affairs iu accordance
with ther local constitutions, and unite in
supporting the general government in its
just exercise of all legitimate powers.
A. J. Uu.i-n-11 (superintendent of public in
struction of Floridu) As the question is dis
cussed in Republican journals I am led to
suppose that some special legislation is to be
inflicted on tbe south, but the south has no
fear. If the question means how can the
southern people lie made Republican it can
not be done. Tbe truth is, the so-called south
ern question can best and wisest be answered
by letting tbe south alone in the enjoyment
of her constitutional rights.
Oscar H. Cooper (sueriutenlent of public
instruction of Texas) The difficulties of tbe
adjustment of the two races are being met
and overcome by common sense.
T. M. Miller (attorney general of Missis
sippi) The contrast between the negro and
white governments has been so decidedly in
favor of tbe latter that the white people are
determined there shall be no return to the
former. Iudeed a military despotism would
be preferred If our political dominion at
home is at all questionable in its rightfulness
of origin, let it be remembered that we view
government here as a matter of business, not
glory, and we protest against interference
because we know that our state affairs are
managed in the interest of all. We say to
the Republicans, take your new states and
keep control of the general government If
you choose, keep up a scheme of taxation
revolting to justice and oppressive upon the
agricultural sections and we will submit
cheerfully ; but don't set ignorance and vice
to rule over tbe south. Lastly, when inter
est and judgment, instead of passion and
prejudice, shall control tbe southern negro,
when there shall be freedom of opinion
among them, then the whole question will be
solved. The white people are solid because
the negroes were solid against them.
The state treasurer of Arkansas, W. E.
Woodruff, thinks the question can be solved
by remitting to the states cbieflv affected all
l. . bjecti, the suprsma court of the
uuiieu ouueu neiug uie nnai arbiter.
George M. Adams (secretary of state of
Kentucky) I am one of those who believe in
the right of tbe people to regulate their own
affairs in their own way.
Solomon Palmer (superintendent of educa
tion of Alabama) Tbe south will work out
the solution if left to do so. J
Lieutenant Governor Mauldin, of South
Carolina The federal government can help
the south by appointing to office men of char
acter and capacity, by dealing generously in
the matter of her internal improvements.aiid
by refunding to her people the cotton tax sal

in armatures of dynamo-electric machines,
made a number of years ago by the well
known electrician, Edward Weston, of New
ark, N. J. As tbe invention forms a part of
nearly every dynamo machine and electric
motor now in use in tbe United States, the
proceedings in this case will be likely to ex
cite a good deal of interest in electrical cir

29, tbe day of tbe great naval parade. The
responses have been favorable, and a magnfi
oent display all along the Hudson river on
both sides of is now a certainty.
Among the companies which have already
promised to make the displays suggested are
the Inman, White Star, Red Star, Compagnie
Generate Trans-AUantiqne, the National,
Cunard, Nord Deutscher, Hamburg-American,
and Northerland lines, and there is no
doubt that all the other companies having
piers on either side of the Hudson river will
join in the display of bunting with a friendly
view to rivaliug all the display made by the
American companies using the docks.
"We want to make tbe Hudson a perfect
funnel of flags aud bunting into which the
procession shall pass," said Capt Erban, "and
if tbe ideas of tbe commission are carried out
the purpose will certainly be accomplished."
The seven or eight United States revenue
cutters, which may be in port at the time of
the parade, will take part in it A portion
of the United States navy division, the reve
nue cutters preceding the steam yachts
which are expected to take part in the pa
rade; the mercantile division, already num
beringS.50 vessels of all shapes, styles and
sizes known to ship-makers, will follow the
Tbe line of parade, though not officially
determined upon, will be up tbe harbor,
around tbe battery, up the East river, turn'
ingat Hunter's Point, and then steaming
aown tne Hust river, and then up the North
river to a point yet to be fixed upon, where
the parade will be dismissed.
To satisfy tbe general curiosity the com
mission will do all iu their power to have the
Vesuvius, now at Philadelphia, brought to
this city and given a prominent place in the
parade of the fleets. Every American war
vessel that can get here will be in tbe parade,
among which will be the Chicago and others
or the new iron-dads.

Rome Declares a School War.
Berlin, April 19. A tdiort time ago the
Bavarian Roman Catholic bishops petitioned
the crown to be allowed to control the mid
dle grade of high class schools in Bavaria.
In making the petition the bishops based
their demands upon a clause found in th
concordat of 1817, which has never been re
pealed. Baron von Luti, Bavarian prime
minister and minister of public instruct! on,
in giving his advice on the subject, made a
rigid refusal of the bishops' demands. This
stirred up the clerical journals, which at
tacked Minister Lutz, and asserted that he
had acted without the consent of tbe regent
Baron Von Lutz then published the decree in
the regeut's handwriting, denying the peti
tion. Thereupon the ultra clerical journals
have proclaimed an open conflict between the
church and tbe state. They declare that the
old culturkamp is reopened in Bavaria, and
are exceedingly bitter iu their denunciation!

BISMARCK REPUDIATES KNAPPE.
The Late German Consul at Apia Given m
Roi gh Going-Over.
Berlin, April 19. A white book regard
ing the Samoan question has been published
under date of April 16 by Prince Bismarck
and Herr Steubel, the present German con
sul at Samoa. Herr Knappe, the late Ger
man consul at Samoa, is censured for his
Conduct throughout all tlm trr.nhlaa at. tha
islands. The white book dwells upon the
tact mat Knappe s acti-ms were entirely un
authorized and without necessity. It states
that he took measures on Dec 17 lost which
resulted in deplorable deaths and effected an
undesirable change in the position of planters
and which jeopardized peace between Ger
many and America, while quiescence would
have preserved a situation that at least
would have been tolerable. Prince Bismarck
concludes the report by declaring that Ger
many has nothing to do with the internal
affairs of Saiuon. The German mission in
Samoa is restricted to protecting German
citizens and enabling them to develop their
Bismarck Puts a Check on Consul.
Prince Bismarck has issued an order in
which he defines the responsibilities of com
manders of war-ships with respect to requests
of consuls abroad. The chancellor di
recta commanders to examine for them
selves tbe legal and political grounds for such
request, unless the consul produces special
authority from the German foreign office.
As the reason for his action Prince Bismarck
refers to tbe recant events in Samoa, where,
he says, an unautboricad request resulted in
great loss of life and injury to German inter
ests, and danger was thereby incurred of
Germany becoming embroiled with a friend
ly nation, with no conclusive reasons exist
ing for theintervention of an armed force.
