" For Pridcnt-Elect in 1888,
Cl-eriera.1 Jolin. -Ar. Logan,
OP ILLINOIS.
Ness City has spelling schools.
, TiiEY.are said to be organizing a
brass band at Mulbrbolc.
Sxow baxks higher and harder
than ever known before. Ntss City
Times. Same up here.
The "Hidden Hand" play is to be
rendered at Millbrook to-day (Saturday)
by the Millbrook Dramatic Club.
Ness City business men muit
hunt a good deal. Wo see by the Times
that they gun for jack-rabbits when busi
ness is dull.
Wano is in Cheyenne, the north
west corner county of Kansas. A eemi
weekly stage line now connects "Wano
with Wallace.
Not knowing him, we can't be
certain. On general principles, however,
we infer that Dr. Chance, of Ness county,
is well named.
The Nebs City Times of last week
expressed the belief that the terrible
storm would cause the mortality among
cattle in that region to bo great.
E. C. Hoskixs, ot Millbrook, and
Mrs. T. M Atterberry, of Eossville, Shaw
nee county, were married recently. They
will mako their home at Millbrook.
The Times understands that the
firm of W. H. Dann & Co., Ness City,
hae determined to enlarge their store
room, and add largely to their stock of
goods.
Kansas City has been getting her
"water supply from the Kansas river.
Steps are in progress looking to the
changing of the source of supply to the
Missouri river. ' -'
It does not require a great stretch
of the imagination to conclude that the
Democrats will not keep Dakota out of
the Union a great -while longer. The
sceptre of political greatness moves
further and further from the Solid South!
If Senator Ing.dls's bill on the
subject gets through, Kansas will have
two fedeial judicial districts. Arkansas,
with a population exceeding but little
one-half the present population of
this state, has had two federal judicial
districts for man' years.
In noticing the agitation by the
Atwood Citizen in behalf of the removal
of the government hind olKce from Ober
lin to Atwood, on moral grounds, the
Gandy, Sherman county, Nezv Tecum sr A
adds: "Wo are a stranger to Atwood,
but if it is a grade bettor than h , it is
ahead of Oberlin."
Deputy Sheriff Makee is re
ported by the Demoa at to be making it
lively for the boj s who have been carry
ing revolvers and firing them about Mill
brook. That paper, with the strongest kind
of a showing of hardsense, says: "This is
right, and every good citizen should
heartily support him in this move."
The Russell llccord seems to pos
sess enough faith to remove a mountain.
In speaking of Captain McDowell as a
candidate for congress, it says: "When
the time comes, however, Hon. J. J. A. T.
Dixon, of Russell county, will' walk off
with the nomination." Yet we feel con
strained to remark that a mountain can
not be removed from where it does not
exist, and that a man withont substance
as a successful candidate for a position is
exceedingly apt not to walk off with the
nomination.. I
Pension Agent Gliok has, for
some reason let us be charitable as to its
nature remembered several old soldiers
in organizing his office in Topeka. On
recommendation of the G. A. R., of Bald
win City, CoL L. P. Green, of that city,
was appointed to a clerkship, and will as
sume the duties of his office in a few days,
Maj. A. P. Shreve, of Topeka, on recom
mendation of Gen. Rice post G. A. R, and
B W. Lothrop, of Foala, on rocommen--dation
of the Paola G. A. R, were also
appointed to .clerkships. There are said
to be some seventeen clerkships in the
pension agent's office.
, GOOD ARGUMENT.
The Russell Becord rides the
ivinter s blasts, as it were, in delving
. up argument in behalf of another
railroad:
The big snow storm is an unanswerable
.argument, so far as the railroad company
feto concerned, for building the Lincoln ex
.tanaiop. Tha ennw h1,v-0 ; . tx-

SnmilXGLY SOUND.
The tax some states and municipalities
impose on drummers is surely unconsti
tutional. At any rate, it is damaging to
commercial intercourse between the ro-ST-ctivo
communities of the country, and
should be prohibited, as it is said congress
intends doing. JCtuKcis- City Journal.
The Journal talks for Kansas
City. There is no reason to doubt
this. Now, if "the tax some states
and municipalities impose on drum
mers is surely unconstitutional,''
why do not Kansas City and
other trade centers which send out
commercial drummers secure a legal
decision or the necessary number of
legal decisions to this effect, and
have the practice stopped at once?
It will not do to answer that the
cost would be too great. It would
be trifling.
The AVorld believes that such
taxation, or, rather, licensing, is
right in morals and in law. These
commercial drummers compose an
army in point of numbers. Their
expenses are necessarily very heavy,
and the7 make them unneces
sarily heavy. Ostensibly, the two
thousand, three thousand or four
thousand dollars a year which each
drummer incurs in the way of ex
penses is paid by his employer. As
a matter of plain fact, the consum
ers or tne eroous tnrousmout tne
country pay his expenses. These
consumers are the people. Why
should not they have same means of
redress? This is the question.
A Mill' WJIIXKLE.
Mr. Blair has introduced in the
national senate a bill to give the
right of trial by jury to claimants
for pensions whose applications have
been rejected by the secretary of the
interior on appeal from ihe de
cision of the commissioner of pen
sions. This action of Senator Blair is its
own eulogy on the goodness of his
heart. There perhaps is no sound
objection to bringing to the aid of
these complicated pension cases a
trial by jury. Yet two dangers to
just decisions present themselves at
the threshold of each case: In some
neighborhoods it would seem impos
sible to secure a jury whose preju
dice against the cause of the pension
applicant would admit of his ob
taining justice; in other localities a
jury of the texture to jump at a con
clusion in favor of the applicant
would perhaps be unavoidable. It
is pretty certain, at the same time,
that the jury system would hardly
make matters worse than they are
now in manjr cases where the
proof is insufficient. In equity,
many of these applications would be
allowed in hot haSte. A class of
them are really deserving on high
moral grounds, while some pension
ers who have, in' one way or another,
presented "sufficient" proof, ought
to be struck from the rolls.
SENATOR INGALLS S SOUNDNESS.
Senator Ingalls's determined labor
in behalf of the proposition that the
government's accepting a person as
a soldier shall be proof of his sound
ness at the time of enlistment should
commend him to the esteem of every
man who served honorably in the
Union ranks. The only strange
feature of the case is that any ques
tion was ever raised in connection
with this matter. It would seem to
appeal to the very best sentiment of
a great and prosperous people, that
if, perchance, a person of unsound
body served his country acceptably,
he is entitled to more credit conse
quently more pension than if he
had rendered the same service with
an admittedly-sound body Of
course, the government backers in
the premises have a point to make.
It is that a man who served with an
unsound body, and now wants a
pension, might not be an. applicant
for a pension if he hadv possessed a
sound body on entering the service.
The'jconclusion is not jirell-foundeaY

Is the millennium here? At any
rate, for once, the AWw has cc"sed to re
vile General Logan, and changed its tac
tics to say: ''Senator Logan's position
on the presidential appointments appears
to be the prevailing one among Republi
can senators. Thoy are disposed to grant
"the president's reqnests for a frank and
sincere mutual effort to gel o'nly good
men into office."
KANSAS PATENTS.
S. A. Haseltine & Bros., patent
solicitors, Springfield, Missouri, send
the World the following list of
patents which were i-sued to citizens
of Kansas recently:
Adolphus J." Lauudray, Clyde,
stack-binder.
John C. Reed, Topeka, car-coupling.
WE BOX'T KNOW 'EM.
There are a lot of shjstors hanging
around the land office at Wa-Keeney, so
we are informed, who pounce down upon
the "tenderfoot" the moment he arrive"
and offers to locate him on a claim for 5.
They show the "tenderfoot a claim that
somebody has already filed on, and thus
swindle him out of his money. Tilton,
you want to wipe the earth with these
fellows. lais-ii'i Rccoi a.
You bet your last shirt. Our
arm is already raised against them.
But we don't know them. Point
them out, that we mar go to wip
ing! WE'RE GENERUUS.
It is a matter of general remark (we
hear it wherever we go) that the popula
tion of Russell county is the most intelli
gent and upright ot any community in
the state and there is no state or nation
in America, or on the globe, that contains
a moi e intelligent and moral people than
the state of Kansas. Ruts-ell Record.
You don't "go" far enough west, young
man. You have this thing simmered
down all right except the county. This
is Trego. Wa-Kelney World.
"We are willing'to concede a great deal,
old man, but we can not modify the
above" Rather than provoke a quanel
with jou, however, (and judging from the
character of the Would,) we will allow
Trego "second place on the ticket."
We don't want the second place.
Take it yourself.
BUTTER MAKING IN URUGUAY.
Uruguay, in South America, is
said to be in an almost-charmed
climate. All sorts of modern agri
cultural machinery dot the farms of
that country, but no amount of
persuasion can induce the natives to
adopt the wooden churn. It is gen
erally admitted that they make a
better article than can be made in
the civilized churn. Here is their
method: "The dairyman pours the
milk, while still warm, into an infla
ted pig or goat skin, hitches it to
his saddle by a long lasso, and gal
lops five or six miles into town with
the milk sack pounding along on
the road behind him. When he
reaches the city his churning is
over, the butter is made, and he ped
dles it from door to door, dipping
out the quantity desired by each
family with a long wooden spoon."
TWO GRAND MEN.
John G. Lee, of Philadelphia, the Re
publican whose appointment as secretary
of legation at Constantinople was asked
by IVinister Cox, and whose name was
sent to tne senate by tne president, nas
declined the offer, and his nomination has
been withdrawn.
He is tho second Republican who has
declined an office from this administra
tion, ex-Governor Noyes, of Ohio, being
the first. Ho was appointed director of
Union Pacific railway early in the admin
istration. The above is a dispatch from
Washington, D. C Two such men
as these will be prepared to do more
effective service for the Republican
cause in 1888 than any brigade of
so-called Republicans who have seen
fit, for a salary or fat fees, to serve
Democracy to the extent of refusing
for years to raise hand or voice
against it.
No one need doubt thatthere will
be Republican patriots in the cam
paign of 18S8. Cleveland, however,
hasr been cutting the crop as short as
possible by retaining in office thou
sands of. Republicans by snubbing
an equal number of his twn party.
The Republican "party 'will perhaps
get even with G rover by finding in
their ranks a goodly proportion of
these snubbed Democrats.
Cleveland's policy of substituting
clear-cut business rules foe politics
will- not do yet. He can not carry
all sides iritti him;; He'is not invin-

TIIH ORIGINAL COYOTE.
We want to tell the Wa-3veeney World
that the editor of the Union was the orig
inal coyote, and we will stand by the un
organized counties until the last one is
in the fold. Tho new counties away onfc
west have no such trials, politically, as
had Claj,Diokinao Silineiand OtHwa.
It required a m in -of i&nronse check to
present himself for admission to the legis
lature from this ragioa eighteen and
twenty years ago. Junction City Union.
Unexplained, the above might be
considered an attack on us for Hav
ing made some ra-h assertion. It is
not. Deacon Martin was what he
claims to have been. What we said
recently was intended as a compli
ment to a man so far east with the
courage of his convictions. His
friendship for the unorganized coun
ties has been 'uniform, just and
sensible.
He aud the World three weeks
ago," advocated simultaneously the
policy of the coming special session
of the legislature including every
county not now organized in the
125 legislative districts contemplated
by the state constitution.
This is just what the legislature
ought to do.
SUCCESSFUL SURVEYORS.
Guess Some of Them Have Been
in Western Kansas.
This, from the Topeka correspondence
of the Kansas City Journal, may save
some western Eansas capitalists some
change. It occurs to the World that a
large quantity of this class of railroad-
line surveying ha3 been done in this end
of the state within the past year:
One more thing which should be men
tioned in this by way of warning the
Journal readers. There are surveyors in
the state who make a living off the peo
ple through a species of blackmail. With
instrumentBawagpnand tent, theyjiye
on the road, run lines'ovor hill and down
valley, selecting from the numerous char
ters such lines as best suit their purpose.
When near a growing town or an ambi
tious village, the line is sure to be run
from half a mile to a mile away. This is
the bait. It is not long before some of
the enterprising citizens, especially those
interested in real estate, make up a purse
varying from $100 to 500, which induces
the snrvej or to go back a few miles, and
resurveying the line, bring it within the
town or village limits. This is tho fish,
and those paying the money are tho suck
ers who so freely nibble. The latter do
not complain, as they would be publish
ing something to the world thoy do not
wish the world to know. In this lies the
safety of these freebooters who obtain so
easy a living. One instance in mind is
where the surveyors obtained 500 in cash
from one growing town. These fellows
and the pirates who get up the paper
roads have nothing in common, do not
know each other, and work their separate
rackets without caring for what the other
does. When a legitimate proposition
comes up, backed by a responsible road,
trouble comes from these fellows in most
unexpected quarters, and fights are in
augurated that equal in intensity county
seat fights. Localities could be named
where good men, in their blindness, are
working for schemes 'that have about as
much solidity as a toy baloon.
Something Sincere.
Mr. A. G. Stacy, the Topeka correspond
ent of the Kansas City Journal, in the
course of an article on the many railroad
charters filed at Topeka in 1885, throws
this light on a subject concerning which
numerous surmises have been made by
our people:
rSION PACIFIC EXTENSIONS.
In addition to the Union Pacific exten
sions alluded to in previous dispatches,
surveyors are now at work on a line that
speaks well for the wisdom of that com-1
pany. They are running a line along the
smoky Hill river, commencing at a point
near thaeast line of Russell county, and
running westerly through the southern
portion of Russell, Ellis, Trego, Gove,
St. John and Wallace counties, following
closely the Smoky JlilL While there is,
as yet, no charter for such a road, there is
every reason to believe the Union Pacific
means to hold by a parallel branch, this
rich and fertile" territory, which lies, on an
average, twenty-five mile3 north of the
great Walnut valley that will be occupied
by the Santa Fe.
Oar old townsman, John C. Henry,
writes from Kansas City to Geo. Pink
ham, Esq that his (Henry's) electric car
is a success. He says that on a level
track it can be run a mile per minute.
Mr. Henry also enquires for the where
abouts of O. G. Cobleigh, the architect of
the Keeney Block, in this place. If any
of our readers can answer the question,
he will pteese infdrm Geo. Pinkham.
