U TOurtt CT'TiJ 3U M. 3IUKUOC1C. Kdltor. AN INFKRNAL DISCRIMINATION. For years the Eagle has advocated the development of export trade via the gulf to our nearest foreign markets. Recent disclosures show that New York, apprehending such a trade movement, has put forth every effort to crush out anv competition from New Orleans or Galveston, having at times done business at a loss in order to crush out those at tempting to got a foothold where New York had been holding a practical monopolv. It now develops that Kan sas Citr via the Louisville and Nashvillo road to New Orleans has a 26-ccnt rato to Havana, while Kansas City and all of Kansas have to pay 37 cents on flour to Ualvestoa. "What is known as the Louisville and Nashville rate may be considered an extremely low rate, but the Kansas rate to Galveston is an ex tremely high one, and to which must be added the water late to any of the ports whero our products may be sold. Today there are at least three railroad schemes or enterprises known as North and South roads, looking to South and Central America as the markets to which they will get the rail haul of the products grown along their lines. If ever constructed the great undeveloped trade of those countries will be the in centive that will cause the money to be iorthcoming. This is an object lesson for the roads now traversing Kansas and reaching New Orleans and the Gulf. These roads are today languishing for want of busi ness, and showing weekly and monthly decreases in their earnings that are .-imply astounding. It will bo no fault of the existing loads if the people do not riio in their might aim construct roaus that will take the business that naturally belongs to them. When the western roads get cured of the insane mania of trying to diveit all iiaflictothe port of New York, and commence to cultivate local and home trade, and foster that which is legiti mate, then they will become a source of comfort and levcnue to those who un wisely bought their stock. STAND BY YOUR STATE. "Wo have a few nervous people who suffer from perpetual nightmare because eastern papers publish reports damaging to Kansas. A glaring falsehood which is its own bpst refutation, sends a chill of horror down their vertebrae, and pic tures a sceno of demnition bow-wows from which no Kansan would ever at tempt to escape. If such moral fear of ghosts 13 constitutional it is blameless; if not there should be some sort of public Hanuariuni for weak spines and weaker intellects. "Who knows of a state or a township which yields perpetual milk and honey, or-revels in continuous Edenlc splendoi? What state holds a patent -on perfect government and moral purity? By what authority do our older sisters set in judgment on our public and private deeds? There is comfoit for our namby pamby friends in the Bimple exercise of returning theso compliments. Even a Kansan might be allowed the belief that there aro a few sterile place3 in Connecticut, that thoio is inherent rot tenness in Now York politics, or that Chicago is badly governed. AVhatever views may bo held by any man, or thousand men, the simple truth prevails in the end. Kansas lias been made the dumping ground of more calumny than any other 6tate during tho last few years, but she goes right on doubling her population from tho very states most ambitious to keep her down. Whether it is envy, jealousy or what not, her traducers mako littlo headway in pre venting immigration. We might almost conclude that it is better than printer's ink or immigration bureaus as advertis ing matter. For tho encouragement of our tender-footed, chicken-hearted -brother Jwo hazaid tho prediction that Kausas will attract moro people within the next five years than any state of the Union. To prevent the immigration of a few socialists and worthless louts f 1 om the puilieus and hot-beds of Anarchy in the easiern cities is moio than wo could hope; but tho fact remains that our people are patriotic and law-abiding. Ono such outbreak as tho Ilaymarkct riotc might leave a grease spot to com memoiato tho event, but wo doubt it. The lule holds good throughout the country, that the rural population are the never-failing defenders of our homes, and here rests tho whole super structure. It is worso than folly to lose heait be causo everybody is not hinging the praises of our state, as they did during the brief period of a crazy boom. Wo have all the good things wo had then and more. People will continue to come, cities will ho built and our sovcrignty will Lo maintained, while farms aro be ing abandoned, mills falling to ruins and riots rro menacing the peace of society in Puritanic, old New England. There is a pi ido of state, a dignity of manhood which bhould prompt every good citizen to stand by and defend his choice of locality, otherwiso he would be more consistent to bhip to other quarto: s. AN HISTORIC BUILDING. Sir?. I B. Plumb sends the editor of the Eagle a handsomely mounted and nicely framed photograph reproduction of ihe old Emporia News building, a two-story frame structure with an out side stairway, which was built bv her husband in 1S57, who had not at that time gained his majorit-. The building stcod on one of the principal corneis of the town, at Sixth and Commercial streets. Tho News occupied tho up stairs of this building, which was after waids owned by Jacob Slotler for manv years, tho lowe.r story being .successively used as a residence, postoflice, barber shop, store, and what not, until the News became a daily.-when both up stairs and down were taken up by the paper, ilauy, very many, are the mem ones, the hiatonral incidents and per sonages which that picture awakens and brings back-. No other building in southern Kansas figuies so distinctively in the history of tho state. But tho building is no moie, the News has ceased to be, Plumb is gone, the corner no longer knows Stoller, -and all is changed, as all things must. lailj WHAT DID IT. In spile of the exceedingly favorable statistical position of cotton, the price of that great Btaple stubbornly refuses to respond. In spite of two successive short crops of cotton and a crop for the cur rent year considerably below the most careful and conservative estimates of the demand for consumption, the cotton market has apparently been altogether insensitive to these influences. As the lecent circular of Hubbard, Price & Co. says, "the movement fully sustains small crop estimates, and they aie becoming more generally accepted. That the market does not advance as a result is a surprise and a disappointment. The bears claim that as it does not advance it must decline, and upon this theory they have been increasing their interest on the other side." The southern planters and dealers are greatly perplexed at the situation and the common query is what is it that holds down tho prico of cotton in spito of all tho reasons cited for an advance? The western wheat and corn grower and cattle raiser and tho eastern manufact urer find themselves in about tho same condition and are asking tho same ques tion. The only answer that can be given is found in the result of tiie election in 1892. The people voted for a change, and they got it. A GAME OF BLUFF. The preliminary hearing of Smith, the alleged libler of the administiation, at Kansas City the first of tho week, has brought out some points in connection with that case that wero unlooked for and which seem to have some signifi cance, one of which was a failure of Mrs. Lease to appear as a witness for the de fendant and tho reason for such failure. It had been announced that Mrs. Lease would appear as the principal witness in the case, but tho turn the affairs had taken and its later involvings seem to have had a mollifying effect on the animus of the real author of the disturb ance, and she failed to appeal-, though accoiding to tho Atchison Champion she was within easy leach of Kansas City for tho examination. When tho witnesses were called at the beginnin g of the hearing Mrs. Lease did not re spond to her name. A short time after wards a telegram was handed to Justice Swingely, before whom the caso was Leing tried. It was from Mrs. Lease and dated at Osborne, The telegram stated that she could not get a train out of that place Sunday, which she said accounted for her not being on hand to testify in the case. The Cham pion raised the point that tho excuse was insufllceut, for the leason that trains run on tho Central Branch, on which road Osborne is situated, every day in tho week. Nor is this all. Tho hearing in the caso was hastily closed in tho afternoon of Monday without waiting for the ar rival of this principal witness, although it was expected that sho would reach the city that day, which she did, even before the examination was ended. To a disinterested outsider the whole proceeding looks queer. Mrs. Lease had repeatedly promised to make somo dam aging, not to say startling, revelations when she went upon the witness stand in tho caso at issue. She was advised that the hearing would take place at the time, and had ample time to have reached there even if there wero no Sunday trains. And not only so, but sho did actually arrive at Kansas City in timo to have appeared at tho examina tion if her jiresence had been desired by both or either side of tho controversy. To sum it up, tho situation presented is a good deal liko a school boys' quarrel that has reached the point whore blows must be exchanged, yet the one daresn'c and the other is afraid to. It is an old saying that politics makes strange bed-fellows, and the saying ap plies with equal pertinency to the woman suffrage phaso of politics as any other. The Wellington dispatches in relation to tho suffrage convention held in that city tlits week noted this peculiar cir cumstance: "At Tuesday night's session every effoit was directed to the conveision of Kansas, and if congressional lepresenta tion ii a criterion tho load is easy. Sen ator Peffer and Representatives Davis, Curtis, Brodcrick, Simpson and Baker of Kansas made remarks expressive of sympathy with woman suffiage. Also, Repiesentatives Coffeen of Wyoming, Simon Wolif of the District of Colum bia and B. K. Bruco (colored) of Missis sippi." The circumstance that Senator Mor gan, chairman of the senate Hawaiian question, and the ablest member of tho upper house in international law and foreign lelations, has prepared the le poit of tho committee in which the former administration is sustained and the present one censured in their re spective dealings with tho Hawaiian affair, vests tho report and tho whole question with special significance, and this is hightened by tho further circum stance that the other Democratic mem bers of the committee disagree to the re port and will submit a minority report. Tho majority repoit being nonpartisan it ought to settle the question of who has ben wrong ana who right onco and for all. A fresh hitch has occurred in the pio gram of tax settlements between the Santa Fe road and the hoards of county commissionets. The commissioner of Reno accepted tho proposition of the road to settle for 1S93 on the basis of the 1892 assessment without further ie coure and agreeing to givo tho road a receipt in full of the amount. Some of t lie citizens of tho county have reared up on their indig and are impleading the state's attorney general to intercede and restrain the county officers from set tling with the laiiroad on the term3 named. Tho attorney general says the county attorney can do this without consulting him. Legal proceedings will ensue. Editor Stead's compromising declara tion in relation to Chicago society was exasperating to the women of that town, but their denunciations of the speaker has served to spur him to renew the assault He is writing a book on Chi cago in which he will describe things in that community as they are. The English language is very tough and flexible, but whether it can stand the strain Stead is understood to bo putting it to remains to be seen. Written for the Eazle. GNOMOLOSICAI. GUMPTION. "Jewel'.-which placed upon the foreflneer of Time will sparkle forever." No. 3. Labok rules your food, drinks, clothing, home and its adornments, your carrifige, harness, desks and coin, bridges, side walks, streets, trees and garden, all prove the debt due unto labor. Lbor ia a horse and did it but know its power all other power would confess its weakness. There is no power but labor: everything having the appearance of power is a shadow, existant by the acquiesence of labor, (real power,) in an established order of things, for the general peace, prosperity, and happiness of mankind. Marriage is tho mother of tho world, it preserves kingdoms, formulates govern ments, founds schools and hospitals, fills cities, settles colonies, points spires to heaven, inculcates mortality, makes home a heaven and finally heaven a home. Marriage is a form of religion, to which unbelievers subscribe without realizing it. Necessity breaks iron, dispenses with decorum, is the mother of invention, a bitter herb, disagreeablo guest, is a jjood teacher, bad master, harsh nurse, power ful weapon, bad bargainer, is bold aud impudent, a bread winner, and is the plea of the tyrant, and sluggard, statesman and politician when other arguments fail. Opportunities lost, are lost forever. Men make as well as find them, but whether created or found unless seized they are as seconds of time, beyond recall. Every man testifies that he feels a loss of op portunity aud is poorer in brain power or purse by it. Zok. The fusion wing of the Kansas Democ racy has assumed the snapper role. This is taken as an indication that it will not co-operate with the Pops in this year's campaign. On the other band the stal wart contingent aro strongly anti-snapper; that is, they want a late conven tion after all the other parties have acted. As between tho two the pros pects for harmony in the party are about as flattering as its chances for success at the next election. The Kansas City Star, in evident self defense, essays an editorial interpreta tion of the epithet, "Cuckoo." Its defi nition of the characterization won't do. A cuckoo is just a cuckoo, and the pachydermatous fowl doth most infest the sheltering shadow of Queen Lil's maih, who would never have had a cuc koo had his second term been his first, or the American people a chance the thing again to do. After refraining from voting with tho Democrats in congress, on the Bland res olution, just to show tiio country the incapacity of tho Democratic party to legislate for tho good ot tho country, the Pop contingent resumed their alliance with the Democrats and by their votes emphasized the fact that fusion between the two does not improvo the situation one whit. Even the moral, sleepy old town of Gieencastle, Ind., furnishes an unre generate liar who says the snow was G feet deep on the level in Kansas during the late storm. Tho report of the weather bureau gives it C inches here, and 13 inches in central Indiana. Tho alma mater of so much brains and piety should regard the ninth commandment witii, at least, formal politeness. While tho tariff tinkeis are laboring so assiduously to perfect a scheme which will inure to tho benefit of tho people in general, and the politicians in particular, they might consider this ready madb axiom fiom high authority, towit: "True conservatism is the refusal to givo up a positive, though imperfect good for a possible, bde unceitain improve ment." Whether the criticisms that have been put upon L. P. Ross in Oklahoma on ac count of his doubtful attitude on the statehood question, or from a change of mind on his own motion, Mr. Ross has championed the cause of single state hood for tho enliro territory and is said to be industriously at woik at Washing ton in that interest. Tho promptitude with which the typographic associations of the country hae taken up the matter of erectimr a monument in honor of their distin guished friend and patron, George W. Childs, pioves their high and sincere le gard for him, and also that tho memo rial will rival thegieatest iu the country in scope and cost. The special significance of the election in Pennsylvania, Tuesday, is in returns from the industrial centers of the state which uniformly show large Republican gains over the vote of last November. The only issue befoio 'the people was the Wilson tariff bill now before the senate. Its condemnation by the voters of the Keystone state was overwhelm ing. The state executive council will hold a meeting in Topeka next Wednesday, February 2S, for tho purpose of electing a successor to Commissioner Hall of tho state railway board whose term ex pires on that day. Hall is a candidate for reappointment and tho chances are in his favor, though there are two or three other aspirants. A very patient man lias decided that the most profanity-provoking bore in exist- ei ce is the man who saunters into your j office at 10 o'clock, picks up your morn- r ing paper and reads audibly and com ments upon the news, each item ofj which haa been stale to you since early breakfast. Tho Chicago Herald says Abraham J Lincoln was a great Damccrct, as he sprang from the people. In that sense, 1 the Republican party is the real demo cratic party of today. February shows an increase of hard winter over last year of about 10 per cent. The weather and the unemployed are about the only things that show an increase. " Artz seems to be doomed. Kansas ap pears to he relaxing her fondness for men who have to have their mouths re duced before they can get into an omnibus. It may interest scientific students to know that tho telegraph wire did not melt when Peckham sent a congrat ulatory telegram to Senator White, ff&sSi jJ-Vg, y reV -J VAXlvA Indications from Oklahoma City en gender the suspicion that Sam Small may yet take a leading part in the novel function of reviving a revivalist. George Washington never told a lie, but then he was never an old settler and had soma fellow declare that this was the coldest winter we ever had. Democrats generally are getting so that they will not give their private opinion of Cleveland, unless three or four thousand men are preseut. Not much water has fallen "n Okla homa this winter, but what has seems to be mixed up in the mud that is thrown at Oklahoma City. Cuckoo3 mostly perch on the branches of small bushes, we aro told. Lately they have taken to roosting on benches supreme benches. Erastus Wimau has very little sympa thy, but he has as much as Dun's agency, which waited a year befcro ex posing him. Yesterday's celebration brings to mind that perhaps George Washington told the truth because he knew he was treed. No bird ever flew so high but it had to come down; vide the tumble of John McKane, Erastus Wiman, the Fields, et al. There are a great many cuckoos but Paramount Blount can go about two octaves higher than tho next be3t. - You could have depended upon the iron men of the south, when the tariff came up, to put their ote in. Arts is booked for oblivion. He is a man of good appearance and will be a man of good disappearance. The politician who impioves his time during this cold weather will hardly es cape perspiring next summer. The Christian Endeavor will endeavor to break into Kansas City politics, which is not Christian, at all. Lobengula is dead and widows are so thick in Africa that you cau't move without a snowplow. Wheat is an innocent enough com modity, but It has caused the downfall of a great many men. Without exonerating Breckinbridge, Miss Pollard seems to have had a Mid way of a time. It is suggested that the anarchists aro trying to break into society by using dynamite. ' Tho Topulist air line is moving right along. The promoters already havo the air. February can rotire. It has succeed ed iu holding a cold winter. McKinley is the cynosure of all eyes and all Buck-eyes. LIFE IN AMERICA. From the Nineteonth Century. Tins business life of American gen tlemen is one of the hardest problems for an Englishman to understand cor rectly. Till comparatively lately in England commercial business, except banking, has not heen thought highly of for gentlemen. Politics, the chruch, the army and nary, the bar,- etc., have been the outlets for English younger sons. In America it is quite different. Among the many reasons for this I will mention but the one important one, that the pursuits above mentioned af ford but few openings, comparatively speaking. The church is a poorly-paid profes sion for the sons of wealtlvy merchants, nd the army and navy are so small in number that they do not afford a field for more than a few. The bar is, of course, open, and is crowded in Amer ica as in England. Politics, for some inscrutable reason, does not seem to attract many of the higher grades of vouth. Consequently the young Amer ican seeks the commercial field, and in ' every American city, especially in the west, one finds at the head of cultiva tion and progress men whose rise has been due to successful commercial en terprise. It is well for the individual that suc cess should be so rewarded, and it ia , well for the community also that the man of business who has gained hii J success on legitimate lines should be its leader. In a new and partly unset tled country like America, so fortu- nately situated as to need practically no foreign policy and to fear no foreign enemies, the creator or the distributer of wealth is a far more valuable man than the politician or the soldier. The sanguincness of the American is another feature especially striking to an outsider. The whole temper of the people is one of hope. No young man enters life in any line without the fullest belief that he is going to suc ceed, and is going to make a great deal of money, and to do it all very quickly. This may be true of young men every where, but it is especially eo in the states. And men are justified in then youthful hopes.J Practically any young man of rea sonable brains and industry is sure to succeed. Openings are numerous, and the sham-witted American is quick to take advantage of them. It is a curi ous fact, but one that I have often heard emplovers of unskilled labor com ment on, that none of their workmen were American born, unless, possibly, some of the foremen. As an English man I am glad to add that rarely are Englishmen, either, found a? unskilled lajrorers in . American workshop. HIS TRIFLE.
