WA-KEEXEY, KANSAS, SATURDAY, jfasTE 20, 1885. .. m . f AcH - "MFMBEE 17 It is reported that "Billy" Martin is on the way north with a crowd of Ok lahoma boomers to locate them in Ellis county. The Plainville Press has been doubled in size. This makes it a five column quarto. Mr. Case has dressed it, anew, and annonnces that it is there to Ktay. The June 15 circular of H. C. Judd &Root, wool commission merchants, Hartford, Conn., is on our table. Kansas and Nebraska wool are quoted: Fine, pood condition, 17 (g. 20; fine, heavy, 12 13; medium, 17 ? 21; coarse, 11 17. The situation, this circular says, remains e Tsentially unchanged. A further decline is not looked for, and we may fairly expect a steady but slow improvement. TnAT mojjel Democrat if any Democrat can be a model Sam J. Ran dall, of Pennsylvania, is reported as say ing1: "I wouldn't give a nickel for a man who isn't an offensive partisan as now applied to the term, actively in the inter est of the party to which he belongs." This is J bo AVoKiiD doctrine. It is truer than a good deal of the Gospel preaching. And yet, do not yon notice that a certain class of heretofore radical Republican office holders are hedging so as to fall into Graver's lap, kiss and make up ! If thi3 game is not going on, tho era when naked signs count is at an end. A SENSIBLE RULING: State Superintendent Lawhead has utSiade aruling to the effect that tho same individual is entitled to only'one quarter section of school land as a result of actual settlement. In other wordp, he believes that repeating in this matter is just as subversive of the public good as the saino act would be in the case of the homesteads of the general government. Attorney General Bradford gives his unqualified endorsement to this ruling of Mr. Lawhead's. It is puzzling to the Wobld to account for the stupidity of a legislature which would, for one reason or another, leave unguarded so important a matter as this. "We assume, however, that the legislature borrowed the idea from the legislation of congress on the homestead question, and that whenever a test case is taken to the supreme court it will be made dangerous for repeaters of settlements on Kansas school lands. TREES TN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREETS. Mr.T. H. Mitchell, of Stockton, was in town a portion of the week, and com plimented this office by calling. Mr. Mitchell is a member of a very successful real estate firm, and has frequent occa sions to visit this county in connection with his business. "We were very much pleased to hear from him that the city council of Stockton, at a recent meeting, took up the World's article on planting trees in the middle of the streets, and discussed it at length with a view to its adaptability to Stockton. Mr. Mitchell is a member of tho Stockton council, and the sentiment of that body, he said, is to the effect that the views expressed in the article named are practicable and desir able. We admire the practical turn of the Stockton city government, and here predict that the chance of congratulating our own city government for its thought fulness in the same direction will bo offered us one of these days. WASTED. ANOTHER LOG A TION. "We are in receipt of a printed notice with this head: IJknft Cfficb Relocation Mass Meeting. The text of the notice reads: There will be a mass meeting of all the residents of tho Northern Land district held in the public school house at Atwood, on Thnrsday the 25th day of June, 18S5, atl o'clock p. m., for the purpose of con sidering the advisability of the removal of the location of the TJ. S. land office now established at Oberlin, Kansas, to a point further west in said district. All parties in favor of said removal are cordially in cited to attend. By order of Committee. Atwood is "a point further west." In fact, Atwood interests prompted the calling of this meeting. "We would have no possible objection to seeing Atwood succeed. Atwood was a strong candidate for the land office location when it was established at Oberlin. Perhaps Oberlin was then the nearer of the two places to the business center of the land district. ft is" not now. the QUESTIONS ANSWERED. A subscriber in St. Louis asks "World: Would a man with 400 or $500 and a wife and two children one a boy of 14 stand any chance to make a living and get a start at stock farming in your comity? If so, what would be the best time of the year for him to Come out? He adds: By answering these questions in your paper you may benefit a good many of your eastern subscribers. ANSWER. Questions of this character have to be answered with an "if." To our sub scriber's first question, we aiiswer, Yes, if the man and wife know the real value of either of the sums named. "We aim to say that some people have started into stock farming here with the next thing to no capital, and to-day, after a lapse of six, five, four or three years, as the case may be, can show, as their own, perhaps fifty head of cattle and a half section or more of land. The stock farmer should, of course, have land of his own. This he should be able to get of the government or in somo other manner without touch ing on the four or five hundred dollars. The profits on four or five hundred dollars' worth of cattle will not keep a family of four persons: but, to help out, some butter can be made, and other turns taken, which will reduce to an almost nominal sum the cost of living. If, for the first year or two, some money must be earned away from home, the father can do this while the boy herds the stock. All this might be done, and be followed by failure. If success is to come, the stock must be grazed, fed, and watered with care at the proper times, to the end that tho loss shall bo reduced to a mini mum, and a vigorous growth maintained. If the stock farmer wishes to begin business immediately on arriving here, he should come in the spring. DEFENCELESS HERAT. Science contains an article upon Herat's importance, by Yambery, the celebrated Eastern traveler. In passing now to the ethnical features of Herat, it is to be noticed that it is exactly the miscellane ous character of the population which makes the work of conquest easy. Taken all in all, the inhabitants of Herat form, indeed, the best possible elements for the designs of a foreign conqueror, for they have been accustomed for centuries to foreign rule, and, with slight exceptions, are hostile equally to the Uzbek on the north, the Afghan on the south, and the Persian on the west. Herat is to-day, to somo extent, the center of trade between India, Persia and central Asia, where new goods are exchanged, the packages are overhaukd and rearranged, and the caravans spend some days or even weeks resting for their further journeys. AT IT. Washington, D. C, June 15. The postmasters at Fredericksburg, Va., Peoria, His., Charlotte, N. C, Salisburry, N. C, Concord, N. H., and Dallas. Tex., have been suspended for partisanship. The fact is, a man can not be a Bepub lican without being a partisan, and this lets them all out just as soon as Grover can attend to their cases. "We are not on confidential terms with Grover, but just notice whether the World is not a true prophet in this instance. The contract lor the projected railroad between Alton (late Bull City) and Stockton has been let. Work of the Equalization Board Substantially, no changes were made in the assessments of Ogallah or Glencoe township. A large number of changes were made, and a good deal of missing property was found, in "Wa-Keeney township. The changes in "Wa-Keeney township were mostly in the nature of advances, the assessments having been very irregular. Some of the finest horses in the county were valued at S10 each. The advance ment on property in Wa-Keeney township, by the board of equalization, amounts to about S2,000, while in Collyer township the assessor's returns were cut down nearly this sum. Unimproved real estate in Gove town ship was advanced from 50c to 75c an acre. The assessed valuation of horses in Wallace county was reduced 25 per cent. In St. John county, cattle "were- ad- I vanccd 20 per cent TIEIIE TJL2S1 THEM T- E. Abstract of the Assessment of Personal Property ia the Different Town ships of Trego Count) for the Year 1885.
