This in formation is not tendered towards in creasing the intensity of the Thanksgiv ing jubilation. Those who are interested in the Mitchell-Corbett fight will be pained to learn that Mitchell iis been broken out at the mouth again. Old Squaw-otr-her-Throne is still in Etatu quo. And if she doesn't like it she can lump it, if we may be permitted to use a foreign term. Unless Senator Mai tin consents to come out against him, there seem to be no chance of getting Cleveland to hedge on his Hawaiian policy. Dispatches from Africa were meagre yestcrdaj but thero is an allpervadmg opinion that King Lobeugula is still -executing his magnificent retreat. Arrangements are already being made in Rome for tho election of a new pope. Leo XLII is failing fast and is not ex pected to live through tho winter. Governmental cabinets in Portugal, Servia and Franco resigned Saturday. Hoke Smith, however, holds on still, like a man trying to draw the fourth ace. Tho hard-times party is on trial, charged with Anglo-Americanism and criminal incompetency, and is suro to get several years of closo confinement. Tho flood of prosperity which was to follow the repeal of the Sherman act is interesting from tho incident of tho rapid and pronounced way she doesn't flood. It is quite natural for a Kansas Repub cae, fcinco tho Australian system has come into vogue, to feci around for his ballot every time ho goes into tho pantry for a piece of pie. Kansas may bo hard ou the turkeys but it is only once or twice a year. What the Sunflower state prides herself in, is her masterly, majestic, and un flagging talent for destroying pie. The announcement that tho prico of coal will not be advanced tho coming winter will be gratifying to consumers In view of the fact that it is at the ton notch and has been all tho past summer ind fall. Tho Odd Fellows held their forty-sixth giand encampment at St. Louis, last week. The order is jubilant over tho reports, which show au increaso of 50,000 during the past year au unprece dented growth. Those Michigan youngsters first jeered our Kansas boys, and then they sailed in and pulled their complexions off. This proves that a Kansas pioducthasno business using his feot to kick when his mouth is in good tiim. At Kingfisher today the greatest state hood convention over held will convene. The principal object of tho meeting ia to Set Oklahoma into the Union, but inci dentally tho speakers will comb noke Smith's hair with a rake. Professor Blackmar of tho state uni veisity is lecturing on "Money and Its Uses.' Long, careful and persistent re search into this matter has convinced us that the liist thing necessary in using money is to get the monov. If Mis. Lease or any other woman, for that matter had been treated by the president as Senator Martin has been the first thing blip would do to get back at t'levelaud would bo to go to tho Whito House and insist on kissing Baby Ruth. Imperial Cajsar turned to clay may Jtop a hole to keep the wind away, but what the potters of this country are kicking about is that the ways and means committee proprses to let in the remains of a lot of old Roman stagers tree of dutv. Frank Lawler, who had a petition Frith 00,000 names on it and who also tissed Baby Ruth, did not get the Chi cago postoftice.

The first contest resulting from the re cent election, so far reported, in the state is announced in Leavenworth county. It hrs, been generally agreed that, the new ballot system is "as Droof against fraudulent voting and wionful i certification of the result as any that could be devised, but it seems thai Dem ocratic election officers are equal to any emergency and can transform a minor ity into a majority with the facility of a uleight-of-hand performance of a fakir froa: Ispahan. MONEY, SUGAR AND ROYALTY. Minister Thurston is a gentleman, all Greshani's discourteous actions to tho contrary notwithstanding. He is a diplomatic officer to whom is due the samo consideration shown the repre sentative of any other government. That he sat down on President Cleveland and Secretary Grediam is entirely their own fault. Both should have known that the lies of their tool Blount would be exposed. In all the Hawaiian trouble Greaham has not only ignored the duly accredited minister, but Mr. Thurston was not 'even told what Mr. Willis' mission was. What would be thought of Mr. Cleveland should he declare war with Canada over the sealing question without so much as hinting to Britain's minister, Sir Julian Paunceforte, that thero was rouble. Thutston not only made tho fur fly, but took off large patches of 6kin, and the administration is, of course, very sore. Blount was but a hired tool, retained to do a dirty job for which he got his pay moio of a tool than Van Alen, who paid for his chance to make Rome howl, and Cleveland realizes that the American people know all, and even more about the dirty scrape than they could wish. It is announced that all the worst things being said about him in the newspapers' are being kept from Mr. Cleveland, but tho best wHl not fail of worrying him, and, it is to be hoped, into a real ization that the people of the United States will stand no shystering in high places. Blount in his report made it clear that he did not care for the testi mony of such men as the chief justice of Hawaii nor that of President Dole and Minister Thurston. But the Ameiican people do, all the same. That Bohemian newspaper man, Nordorff, and that sugar pirate, Claus Spreckles, one the paid tool of the other, were the only men whose words Blount estimated as being worth anything, if we except the Englishman Da vies, whose son is to marry Kaiulauia, the heir apparent, who it is certain went back to Europe last spiing with assur ances from both Cleveland and Gresham that the American flag should come down. In short, the whole question has resolved itself into one of money, sugar and royalty on the one hand, and the rights of a people, the American flag and the interests of the United States upon the other, with Mr. Cleveland on the money, sugar and i oyalty side. EUROPEAN REPUBLICJ3. Enid, O. T., Nor. 2fl. To the Editor of the Eiurie. Please tell me. through the EArtTn. how many republics there are in Em one, aud their names, and oblige. J. YOXSOX. There are but two that are commonly known and worthy the name in point of power and significance, i. o., Franco and the Swiss confederation; though there are two other diminutive states situate in tho Pyranees range to the not th of Spain San Marino and Andorra in which hitter, it is claimed, purer democracy obtains in their government than anywhere else. Ed. Eagle. THE NEJ1D OP IRRIGATION. Why should we always talk of "irriga tion in the "western part of Kansas?" Why not iirigate in the eastern part of Kansas?" If irrigation in the Kaw valley will treble and quadruple tho crops as many claim it will, why not erect dams all alone; the liver and irrigate on a big .scale. There ro times nearly every 3'e.ir in this valley that if iingiition ditches could be opened on the corn, wheat and potato fields, $o,000,C00 would be added to the value of the ciopy. That ouht to pay tho cost of the Widest kind ot irrigation work's. Topeka Journal. Tho Journal catches the vital point and states it tersely. The need of irri gation in any part of the state is to sup plement the natural precipitation, which is periodically short in all sections at tho season when most needed. Eastern Kan sas, nor central nor western, require irrigation absolutely to produco crops every season, as the rainfall is sufficient most seasons to prompt good yields aud frequently phenomenal ones. In Drief, irrigation is wanted to insure us against the occasional short crops and less fio quent failures. That it will ao this there is no sort of doubt. SOL'S SURPRISE. Thero is hardly an editor or publisher in Kansas who will not feel about as proud of tho sixteen pages, illustrated Kansas Chief, as doe3 its veteran pro prietor, who sent it out last week to his family of subscribers. It is printed on fine calendared paper with book ink, containing ono hundred and fifty por traits and pictures of the men and women and institution of Doniphau county, with the ptettiest poems writ during all its thirty-seven years of history by it editor and con- tributors. It is not a souvenir, a delightful of a thousand men a keepksako that up from tho bottom drawer and trunk fifty "boom" but a remembrancer and things, will turn of many a or a hundred years heuce. The E.vole, in the early seventies, issued the first illustrated edition ever attempted in tho state. Captain Henry King put it over his sig nature that it was tho finest and most unique thing of the kind ever issued up to that t.mo in the United States. But how insignificant that issue of tho Eagle with its meagre three hundred dollars worth of wooden engravings, to this bright, sixteen-page memento of letrospection and reminiscence, in brilliant-black and glossy white, sent out as a token of his loyalty and esteem by Sol Miller to his readers. The time betook to do it in is characteristic of tho man; a little low hut on top and a winner in the end. The Chief is in its thirty seventh year, its proprietor in his sixty third, and a brighter sheet nor more de serving man can bo found west nor east of the Missouri One of the most remarkable features of Chicago dming the continuance of the world's fair was its freedom from epidemics and its unusual healthfulness. Bur, whether fiom relaxation of sani taiy efforts or other causes, the city is just now threatened with a scourge of smallpox and influenza, STATEHOOD FOR OKLAHOMA. There will assemble in Kingfisher, O. T., today the largest number of repre sentative citizens of the Indian territory, including tho unorganized portions as well as the organized portion known as Oklahoma, that have ever met in con vention in the territory for any purpose. The interest the people are manifesting in this matter is all that is needed, if, indeed, evidence on that point were re quired, to show the importance they at tach to being placed upon their own resources as to local self government the managemeat and control of their own affairs. That the conditions population, wealth, resources are ample for the erection of au independent and prosper ous state is not doubted, and that the social, moial, intellectual and material advancement of the community will be immeasurably enhanced thereby is not a debatable question and will not require any effort en the part of the convention to establish. The ono great duty the body will find beforo it, and to perform, will be to voice tho strong de sire of the people for the full privileges of citizenship with the people of the state, and a willingness to assume their share of the responsibilities and burdens. It is no flattery to Oklahoma nor re flection upon any other territory or titate, to say that the youuest is the best equipped and qualified for statehood of any that has sought admission to the union. This is largely due to the for tuitous circumstances that have sur rounded the territory from the begin ning of its organized existence a3 such; but this fact does not modify the inher ent merits it possesses; it is simply tho presence of good fortune which tho peo ple have been prompt to avail themselves of and employ as advantageous auxiliary to substantial progress. Tiie high character of the men who will compose the convention, and their earnestness and unity of purpose cannot fail to impress upon congress the im portance of erecting Oklahoma as a sov ereign state, and its early admission into the great family of commonwealths. At the rally ot Pop politicians held in Kansas Citv it transpiies that there was a war of words and no end of trouble in formulating a policy for next year's campaign. Lewelling and his friends were for standing by tho war record of last winter, but a resolution denouncing the whole Dunsmore business was passed over the protest of some twenty leading lights who withdiew from the con ference, among them were Otis and Simpson. A letter from whiskers Peffer announced that be was not in favor of a now party but holding to the insignia of Pop and inarching to victory with the cry of "free silver." Twenty-six football players were fatally injured during the past sea son in England, and nearly half that number in the United Stages. The ques tion is, is not the game too brutal, and can't it be modified without robbing it of its interest? It is far more danger ous than prize ring fights or than Span ish bull fights. Is it the fight that's in it the imminent danger to life and limb that renders it so popular? Chicago wants a Pied Piper and wants him bad. A vast army of rats has taken possession of tho world's fair buildings. They move in droves in all parts of the grounds and are found thickly huddled together under floors aud in the walls, especially in those structures where pop corn and lunches were served to visitors. The administration building is particu larly a favorite with tho rodents. Noting the circumstance that four persous were killed in the game of foot ball wtthin a month, an exchange prods the prize fighters to redoubled viciousness if they would hold their pi estige for fatalities. In view of the preponderance in numbers and the frequency of the rushes of kickers, the latter haven't much to brag over so far, except as to sheer brutality. We must remember in fitting our sons for a higher life and ennobling their minds for a keener dplight of the soulful raptures which shall bo eternal in the mysterious beyond we should remember that the way to do this is to give them a leather bag, full of wind, and let them kick the stuffing out of it. General Lew Wallace has been taken to task by his publishers, Harper Bros., it is said, because his work "The Prince of India" bears a suspicious similarity to Dr. Ludlow's romance "The Captain of the Janizaries." Every great literary man has had to meet the charge of plagiarism and like General Wallace can be expected to pull through. Statesmen out of a job does not nec essarily mean that openings will follow for those who have never been in. Colo nel Dan Anthony is out in an editorial advocating John J. Ingalls for governor, thereby postponing his own chances, it may be, for two or four years more. Whenevor the football boy? of the Kansas University want their spinal column telescoped, their kneecaps pulled off and their eyelids made to sag down below their chins, they should call and examine Ann Arbor's Btock of kicks be fore going elsewhere. An Englishman calls on the United States to abolish the desks in the house of representatives. He says these desks prolong debates and delay business. He forgets that many of our congressmen are of Methodist extraction and train ing, who must have, in order to gain great oratorical effects, something to pound. At a great meeting in SL Paul the farmers of the northwest resolved to hold wheat, basing their determination upon the shortage of the wheat crop and the heavy foreign exports. And the market quotations continue to bob up and down just tho same. If money continues to pile up In the banks down east at the rate it has for the past month or six weeks its owners will soon be rustling as lively to let it go as they were three months ago to gather it in.

Ami, thh b liberty. It is aheady predicted that the quad rangular political debate announced to take place at Salina shortly will be so dry that the city will find it necessary to call another irrigation convention. There is no danger of hot winds, though, this late in the season. THE STATE IRRIGATION CONVENTION From the Atchison Chanploa. The irrigation convention at Wichita was a success in every particular. The fact that every centleman whose name appeared on the program was present, is sufficient proof of the declaration that the convention was a success. There were soma able men there as able as there are in this country. Their papers will be compiled and distributed throughout the state. Every farmer and land owner should secure one, and then keep track of the further tecom mendations of the practical aud theoretical irrigators for, after all is said and done, the land owner himselt must put inigation into practice. While each speaker thought the government should and would do something in the lino of assisting in demonstrations of water supply aud methods of bringing it lo the surfrce, stjll they urged tho fact that must impress every citizen that he himself must do the practical work. The suggestions of the speakers, their hints aud experiences and observations as compiled will be of great help to those who are proposing to experiment. The general attendance indicated the interest being taken in the subject of irrigation. Many farmers aud laud own ers throughout tho state were present, while there were those present from Boston, Chicago and other points as rep senlatives of landed and financial insti tutions. The- question is no longer "Shall we irrigate?"' it is "What is the practical method?" It is not advocated that it shall be done under one great systom, but by individual land owners, singly or otherwise as may prove the most economical and efficient. It is not believed practical for a farmer to at tempt the irrigation of a section, but every farmer, can irigate from live to twenty or forty acres. It was generally believed that this was the first best thing to attempt. The big land owners pres ent agreed that this method would be the winning one. Thero was considerable clash of opin ion upon various matters incidental to practical irrigation, but of the friend liest character. Views were expressed diametrically opposed to each other, but men thinking, observing, experiment ing men were there to add that which would be of benefit and not to cajole, deceive or distract. It is a great subject and irrigation will some day be of in estimable value to the semi-arid belt. It is gooa wherever it can ue operated, whether here or to the east or'west of us. Tne work of agitation is on, the time of practical experiment is at hand. It will be accomplished some way. Much has been done, but vastly more is to be done. JOTTINGS ADOOT KANSAS. The council of administration for the department, G. A. R., will hold a meeting in Newton, today, Tuesday, The sensation in Newton just now is a breach-Of-promise suit for $15,000 institute ed by a Pennsylvania spinster against a prominent resident physician. A doctor at Erie, Kansas, won a $5,000 prize offered by a tobacco firm for the nearest guess to the world's fair attend ance. Tne actual figures were 21,480,141 and he guessed only 20 less. A farmer in Osage county dropped dead In his cornfield a day or two Hgo. The lo cal paper adds: "In the midst of life we are in death." In tho midst of the corn field, too, it seems. It was a Lawrence girl who went Into n book store the other day and asked for "Barnyard Klippiucs" bound in calf. They deny, though, that she was looking for a treatise ou buffalo chips. McPherson county has arranged to build a court honso and jail, and tho con tract for the same has been let. It is un derstood that the building will be model ed after the Reno county prisou. Wheat sowing is still in progress in Finney county and will continue for some time yet if the weather will permit. The Garden City Imprint says the acreatre sown to wheat this fall will bo equal to that of any formar year. One firm in Garden City shipped a ton ami a quarter of dressed turkeys to Col orado points ono day last week. The Finney county people have something to be thankful for notwithstanding the magnified aridity of their section. General T. T. Taylor of Hutchinson will shortly move to Lake Charles, La., where he will assume the attorneyship of the Jennings and Lake Charles railroad. This road was conceived and built by J. B.

The annual meeting of the Territorial Teachers' association will be held at Okla homa City Dec. 27, 2S and 29. 1S93. Every visitor in Kingfisher today must be prepared to say that be always was ia favor of Kiugfisher for the capital. Of course this will yj a redletter day at Kingfisher but that is no necessity why the boys should try to paint the town that color. If the sky sages over in the direction of Kingfisher today you may kuow that Den nis Fiynn is making u casual reference to Hoke Smith. One good thing about Oklahoma is that the papers down there were never given much to calling a shack "a pala tial residence." One man in Oklahoma City has read everything that has been published on the Stiies court martial and ha has been ready to die for a week. If an advertisement can be believed Guthrie has a magazine that will not take subsciibers from Oklahoma county. But that sounds like a fake. As Bill Hackney will not ba in King fisher today the representative of the In dian tribes at the statehood convention can be reasonably sure ot their lives.

From the Lawrenco JoaraaL Tbere is a complaint from all parts of the state' to the effect that the game law, passed last winter, is violated most grossly. There is no doubt of it. A Jaw as severe and as senseless as the present game law of Kansas will never be en forced. To prohibit, under denalty of a fine ot .$25, a man from hunting on tho farm of a friend when that friend is per fectly willing for him to hunt tbere, is carrying matters just a little too far, even for Kansas. The Wichita Convention. From the Sjlina Kepubllcan. The irrigation convention held in Wichita on Wednesday and Thursday of last week, was one of the most success ful irrigation conventions that has ever been held in the United States. The at tendance was large and representative; every interest in the state ot Kansas was represented at this convention. The papers read were of a high order, and a great deal of information was thrown upon the various features of the irriga tion problem. The discussions were in tensely interesting and instructive, and great good will result from this conven tion. Wichita was an excel lent place to hold the convention. Her citizens took great interest m the sub ject, and the delegates were highly pleased with their treatment while in the city. In Full View.
