SEVESTTH YEAE. Gen. Grant's condition does not improve. The Press has done some good at Plainville anyway. The Echo of the last two weeks actually could be read. The Wichita Eagle is rather hard on our last body of law makers. It calls them the "big fool legislature." And now they are having a speck of war down on the Isthmus of Panama. Our Democratic government has sent a ship thither to protect United States interests. G. W. Nimocks, of great Bend, has been appointed judge of the 20th dis trict, which was created the past winter. Much damage is reported by the settler as the result of a prairie fire which recently came within half a mile of reach ing Ludell, Bawlins county, from the north. Dr. Nealley has kindly remem bered us with a copy of the biennial re port of the directors and warden of the state penitentiary for the fiscal years i883 and iS8.j. A son of one of the professors at Columbian University in Washington died suddenly a few days ago from what phy sicians pronounce depression of the heart caused by sucking cigarettes and inhaling the smoke. Gov. Martin's Arbor Day pro clamation is a happy contribution to the literature oZ the season. April 2nd is the day appointed. It is to be hoped that it will be generally observed through the state,but emphatically in the west end. In several of the back counties of of W. Virginia, stock is said to be dying for want of feed, and many of the people are on the verge of death by starvation. What may never occur there again hap pened last year in the shape of a drouth. Weigh well these words: He who at this time persists in straight farming in this immediate section of Kansas wilfully applies the knife to his own fi nancial throat Stock farming here is in telligent farming. Straight farming here is ignorant fanning. Ignorant farming never did pay anywhere, and it never will. The Westphalia Democrat, over in the eastern end of this state, announces with great gravity that "President Cleve land, in his cabinet appointments, has chosen for secretary of the navy Wm. C. Whitney, a second cousin of our fore man, Miss Adele Keed." It will be just like some folks to exclaim, Bully for Miss Beed! A few men out here perhaps ono in every hundred persist in playing the role of hypochondriacal jackasses. If anybody builds a house, these select men place an imaginary 'corpse in it If anybody plows a piece of ground, these smert fellows see in the move the destruc tion of the stock interests. With them, what is is wrong, and what can not be is right There are no females in the lot, a ad the breed is running out The XVIth Amendtnent is the name of a paper at Buffalo, N. Y. It proposes that the sixteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States shall read: "Section 1. Neither distilled or fermented liquors shall be made, im ported, transported, sold or used for drinking purposes within the United States or any place subject to their juris diction. Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropri ate legislation. The Amendment nespa per is also severe on the use of tobaco. It is right A QUESTION of no little impor tance just now is whether county clerks are legally authorized to certify and re cord pension certificates. Attorney General Garland has sent from Washing ton to our Kansas attorney general to ascertain what the law in this state is. , The Commonwealth wants to v know in the event of its rjeing determined that county clerks are not authorized to certi fy and record-pension certificates, what is to be done about receiving the money x which has thus been paid to pensioner. The recipients will keep it. STRIKES AND STRIKERS. Held overjrom last iveck. Our latest advices at this writing (Wednesday) is to the effect that the Missouri Pacific railway management have so far deferred to the demands of the strikers as to promise a restoration of the wages which were being paid in Septem ber last, and not to throw out of employ ment any of the present strikers. This pleasant turn of affairs seems to be the direct result of a conference which was held at St. Louis on Monday between Governor Martin, of Kansas, Governor Marmaduke, of Missouri, and the railroad commissioners of Kansas and Missouri. As yet, only a small portion of the strikers have resumed work, because of their desire to have the railroad officials bind themselves legally for the performance ol their promise. Whether this demand will be granted, is yet in doubt It is a matter of congratulation that this strike is about to end. Its dimen sions have been extensive, involving large ly the states of Kansas, Missouri, Texas and Indian Territory. Business along the M. P. railway was almost entirely sus pended. Much loss of perishable prop erty in shipment was a result. In Texas, the necessaries of life had almost given out at many points. All this menace to the commercial in terests of the country should be provided against by national legislation. On the other hand, as a matter of moral principle, we have no doubt that the strikers were right A railroad corpora tion believed that it had them by the throats. It had made three reductions in the wages of employes since last Septem ber, without consulting the employers or lessening their labors. The trouble with the position of the strikers is that they set themselves up as autocrats whenever they dictate that they shall be retained in the employ of any man, men or company. The way out of the network of difficulty which presents itself lies in the thorough training of railroad employees for their work, in a continuance of their present labor organizations, and striking when ever they feel like doing so. But here must be a departure from the present practice. If good grounds exist for strik ing, and the employer can not be brought to terms, the strikers should give way to such new hands as the employers may select If these new hands are thorough ly qualified for the work, no one has been wronged. If they are not, they can soon be displaced by competent men; because railroad wrecks and other accidents can be used against them and their employer in so forcible a manner as to secure, in the end, the employment of only safe, intelligent men. Laborers of honor and ability are simply no better nor no worse than their employers of like character. Both classes have rights which must be respected. Both are liable to commit wrongs which society, as a whole, can not tolerate. DEAD FOR ALL TIME. Doctor Neely, it seems, reserved some kind of a fifty feet in the soldiers' home tract which was made by him to the city of Leavenworth. It seems that he has now deeded to the city that fifty feet The Times, which hates the doctor, now claims that if Neely had not made this reservation of .fifty feet in the first place, the 850,000 appropriation would have be come a law. That bill was too full of grab and steal to become a law. The less which its friends say of it from now on, the better it will be for Leavenworth. She missed narrowly the past winter getting a 850,000 grab. She never again can approach the point of success. The people of the state are now awakened on the subject In the campaign of 1886 it will be equivalent to the defeat of any candidate in central or western Kansas for him to avow his fealty to that steal. None of them will be caught making such an avowal either. Mark our words. KANSAS PATENTS. S. A. Haseltine & Bra, patent solicitors, Springfield, Missouri, send the World the following list of patents which were issued to citizens of this state during the past week: R C. Moore, Holton, filter. C. A. Bickard, Ottawa, steam-boiler feeder. Wm. Schwartz, Louisburg, feed-water heater. M. F. Ellis, Atchison, brick for veneer ing frame houses and other wooden buildings. - ' " S. JV-4 tfifi. y. """,4 STOCK DF-A-IRIMIIlsra- TitE3 WA-KEENEY, KANSAS, SATITUDAY, MARCH 28, 1885. Married. At the residence of the bride's cousin, Mr. J. G. Martin, near Westport, Mo., Thursday evening?1 Maircli 19185, Mr. Lee Monroe and Miss Lilla Day Moore, Bev. Givens officiating. The happy couple arrived in Wa-Keeney last Sunday evening. The World thought that nothing short of something exceedingly significant could have taken Lee away from the cares of business for a whole week. He and his wife have taken rooms at the Uniori House, wheie they will remain until the Monroe residence is vacated by its present occupants. There is no need of running our pencil across much paper in extending congrat ulations to Mr. and Mrs. Monroe. Mr. Monroe is well-educated, well-behaved, attentive to business, and is bound to win in the race of life. Mrs. Monroe is a sis ter of our esteemed townsman, Mr. T. B. Moore, the railway station agent and proprietor of the Commercial House, and Wa-Keeney society will be delighted with her acquisition to its numbers- The Exhibition. Reported for the Western Kansas World, Together with others who are interested in our schools, we attended the exhibition, and willingly paid for our reserved chair to see and hear the whole performance. For fear that our report will never come to print, if it is too long, I will make it as brief as possible. The exercises, as a whole, were very creditable, speaking well for the care and training of those taking part, as well as for the zeal of our teachers, who volun tarily undertook this extra work for the benefit of the school, for the proceeds are to be used in the purchase of an organ. We would like -to mention each peice in detail, but our space "forbids; only a few can be mentipned. The opening of the exercises by the primary school repeating the Lord's Pray er in concert, witn eyes uplifted and hands clasped, was a very pretty sight, and appropriate. While in position they sang a song of welcome. Next a good recitation of the same sub ject by four little boys. ''Froggy and his Friends." The frog would have been proud of his little friends, had they heard them speak, and seen them hop off the stage. The two little colored girls who Tecited the ditty, "The New Bonnet," did well. Special mention must be made of the Alphabetical Boun delay, by 23 little girls and 4 boys. Anything that is spectacular in such an entertainment is the most ap preciated by the audience. Each one performed his part well, singing loud enough to be heard. " Bees, Clocks and Brooms," as types of industry, was delivered in a very bril liant and spirited manner. Nor would we forget the littio " Peek a Boo" song. Concert recitation by a class of eight girls, entitled "Children of all Ages," was well received. Bccitation, "Excelsior," was well ren dered by Miss Euth Welch. A very good selection, "Our Centennial," was somewhat marred by the noise out side. The wind and tin roof, making such a terrible noise, drowned the voices of the fair ones on the stage, and much of the good effect was lost " The Army and Navy," by f ourty-four characters, was well appreciated. "The Ghost in White," by eight young ladies; one would imagine they were at tending some fashionable boarding school, they seemed so familiar with the tricks and sports of such places. The audience was delighted. "A Lesson Well Worth Remembering" was well played and enjoyed. The climax was in the last piece, "Stage Struck," in three acts. The dramatis per sons, Miss Viola Welch, Miss Nora Glea son, Masters Carson and Stayt, were well selected, and carried out their parts welL The different selections were brought on the stage without much delay, and the exercises were all enjoyed by the listeners. If there is any criticism, it would be that the program was too long, which is usu ally the case where so many have to take part, as is necessary in an entertainment of this kind. Part of the audience leaves before all the pieces are presented, which is discouraging to those who take part and a loss to those leaving. The net receipts were $17.65. Garden calculations. makers are profuse with rB-A.SS 03B1 OTTIR. H5rnDTJSTI2rIES- The Camp Fire. J Following is the program of exercises to be,, observed cm the 28th inst, at the Camp Fire at Ness City, held Underhe auspices of Sherman Post No. 30, G. A. B.-: ASSEMBLY WILL BE SOUNDED At 10 o'clock a. m., at which time it is ex pected that all of the old soldiers and sailors of the county will convene at the Opera House, where the forenoon will be spent in social chat. At 12 o'clock the DINNER CALL Will summon the boys to ono more meal of "pork and peans," pure asd simple. At 1:30 p. m. the meeting will be called to order, when the following program will be carried out as near as may be: Opening Prayer Chaplain Brown Song Schoharie Glee Club Address of Welcome Post Commander Select Beading. .Junior Vice Commander Anecdote Adjutant Song Ness City Glee Club Speech Sam A.

All present are invited to join in swelling the chorous. The following comrades have been ap pointed as a committee on providing and preparing dinner: A. S. Dickson, J. E. Heizer, Wm. Grisson, J. F. C. McCaslin and John Stephens. . Up in Collyer township, recently the 8-year-old boy J. W. Burns was standing at the top of a 16-foot ladder. Tho top of the ladder leaned against a section of a hay stack, which had been cut from the main stack. While the boy occupied that position, the cut-ofFsection fell, precipitat ing the ladder to the ground, with the boy under the ladder. At first, tho little fellow was supposed to be killed; but, after having a very sore arm for several days, he has recovered. W. B. Kritchfield has at his store what he calls a carpet exhibitor. It is handsome, and consists of four sides lined with glass, whereby the square piece of carpet which is placed inside the square is reflected to tho right, left, front and back, so as to show how it is fitter. Kritchfield has two dozen kinds of carpet as samples, and no reason exists for a per son not ordering as inteligently of him as of a person in a house filled with car pets. Not long ago, in the south part of Graham county, as one of Mr. Stephen Van Dyke's boys was in the act of shooting a rabbit from the wagon, the gun hammer caught in the tail of his father's overcoat, with, the effect of sending the charge of shot through a side of the boy's neck. Fortunately, the wound was not mortal, and the boy is around now, but the balls have not all been extracted. It is about determined by the sheep men that they will have a public shearing at this place this spring. In due season, the announcement will appear in the Wobw. The shearing can not be other wise than a grand triumph. The jce was broken by the shearing of last spring, and this time the competitoru for premiums and honors will be thick. S. C. Robb, G. W. Cross and Judge Conger made the regular quarterly inspec tion of Treasurer Kelly's books on Wednesday and Thursday. Of course, it is unnecessary for us to add that they were foiind as straight as a thoroughly-stretched string. A new petition for Dr. Nealley's retention as surgeon of the state peniten tiary was circulated in town this week, and numerously signed. This petition is directed to the warden and directors of the penitentiary. Mr. J. H. March,the bankers having a building 20x30 feet erected on his lot, between Osborne & Monreo's and Wagner & Grim's. He expects to have it ready for occupancy in the coarse of ten days cr a fortnight. , Warren has been here again this week, This time he has bought of Harrison not far from 12,000 pounds of hides. , We have not heard from other persons of whom he has made purchases.
