The World would be untrue to
itself were it to fail to place itself on
record as utterly opposed to the re
cent legislation at Topeka, which
seeks to withhold f 1 om the market,
until three years after a county has
been organized, all the school land
within its borders. The law, aside
from the question of who is respon
sible for its passage, is infamous,
for these, among othei reasons:
1. It is in conflict with the best
interest of the state: School lauds
cannot be tased until they have been
sold; there is no adequate reason to
doubt that the prices of these lands
in western Kansas are as "high
now as they will be after any of the
at-present unorganized counties shall
nave been orgimzeu. three years:
moreover, had the law been per
mitted to stand as it was, history
would have been certain to be re
peated to the extent of a large pro
portion of the lands affected by this
act being sold by the state at least
two or three times prior to the time
when this liw permits them to be
placed on the market, thus giving
the stale the material advantage of
harvesting of tener than once, instead
of not at all, one-tenth of the pur
chase price and one or more instal
ments of interesi.
2. It is utterly unjust to deprive
the people of western Kansas of the
privilege of having the school lauds
lying in their territory sold after
the people in all other sections ot
the state have partaken of this priv
ilege. 3. The withholding of these lands
from market for three-yen re from
the organization oi the counties in
which they lie, constitutes ' an incu
bus to the prosperity of the schools
in every school district in those
counties, and oppress, to a great ex
tent, the interests of every school
district in the state, thus being a
boomerang to the very interests for
which this class of lauds was created.
4. The avowed friends of this
infamous measure, as well as those
who permitted it to be passed with-'
out remonstrance, will be apt to use
as a defe.nse the proposition that this
new law does not prevent paople set
tling on these lands, and improving
them, and that tne settlers are cer
tain of the chance to be th original
purchasers on sale da'. This spe
cious plea does not answer these other
weighty objections. Is or does the
charge that speculators were hand
ling an undue proportion of these
school lauds affect the fact that the
six months residence recommended
Irv Superintendent. Lawhead, as a
qualification to become a purchaser,
would have been a sufficient pan
acea for this complaint. And the
limitation of purchase to one hun
dred and sixty acres by the same in
dividual, as recommended by Profes
sor Lawhead, should have quieted
the nerves of the most suspecting.
ln the passage of this bill, the in
terests of western Kansas have sus
tained a shock which the next legis
lature will be very apt to heal.
JUST THE OTHER WAY.
The Kansas City Journal is show
ing .1 decided disposition to engage
in its old trick o meddling with Kan
sas politics. Its Topeka correspond
ent, A. Gr. Stacy, Esq., has consider
able to say'in the issue of the IS, in
defense of Mr. Hanback. Mr. Stacy
confines his remarks to the action of
Mr.- Hanback in the house on the
pan-electric telephone case, with the
casual ending up that
The result has been a reaction, and even
Mr. Tilton, of Wa-Iveenoy, a probable can
didate for congressman from that district,
admits that Mr. Hanback is stronger than
ever among tho people who know him.
Correspondent Stacy is a grim
joker. He seeks to negative Avhat
we did say. No man who is not re
liable can, grow stronger than ever
among the people who know him.

We do not doubt that in turn the manu
facturers of that lumber, -as well as the
followers of other branches of business in
that pool ly farmed state would, consume
immenso quantities of flour of western
Kansas manufacture. Thus accompany

better quality of lumber for one half or
tvo-thirds of what we now get costt,,

tion of our wueat grow ers, and, conse
quently, of the business community.
By the way, would not it be an elegant
idea for the business men of Wa-Keeney
to hold a meeting one of these evenings,
and discuss this question? Wo are un
alterably of the opinion that it would.

road. Appoint your committee, and we
will appoint a similar one to co-opporato

As the horizon of next fall's campaign
begins to faintly emerge through the di
taut mists, tho hum of tho congressional
beo is buzzing in thc-bstrncts" of several
gentlemen ot m tho sixth district. Hoa
i)avid Heron, of Jewell county, is an opau
candidate for tho position, and being a
man of sierliug integrity, steady habits
and ability, he will have a strong lighting
Hon. Lewis Hanback will, ul all prob
ability, be a candidate for re-election, and
being a good v ire-puller, together with
the prestige of being already in, he vill
bo quite suro to make a hard fight
Hon. A. Ii. Patchin has already been
named for tho place, and will be quite
likely to scratch up several delegates on
the iron tier.
It is currently rumored that Hon, "W.
H. Barnes, of Stockton, uould not throw
congressional honors over his left shoul
der, nor v.ould it be necessary for him to
do so on account of lack of qualifications,
especially snouid the comparison be made
with several present incumbents.
Just now, while v.e wnte, tho south
biecze, rustling through our open window,
mmmuis tho name of W. S. Tilton. of
Wa-Keeney. Was it an intuition, or a
1 cal inspiration, that zephyric combina
tion ot vowels and consonants, which
formed the nomenclature of Trego's vig
orous quill shover? Who can tell? Yet,
"coming events cast their shadows be
fore," and the phantasy may not bo alto
gether an illusion.
Hon. J. J. A. T. Dixon, of Russell coun
ty, will loom up lustily in the fray, and
his clarion tones will not bo the least so
norous in tho approaching contest. I- A
With calm and dignified mien, Capt.
McDowell, of Smith county, posses 011 the
threshold of the race course, waiting with
bated breath for the signal to start. And,
not the least roman of them all, is the
Captain, bj any means; a well bred gen
tleman, courteous to all, and beloved by
his neighbors and friends, his support
will bcari earnest one. And should there
bo a possibility of the Captain, not being
a candidate, yet in.that case Smith coun
ty would not be entirely destitute, for the
irrepressiblo Webb McXall stands "like a
grey hound in tho slips ready for the
btart" while Senator Pickler is already
perched upon the trap only waiting for
somebody to touch him off. . '
'We have not heard as ct whether or
not Mitchell county will trot out a candi
date; but should they present the name
of Senator I. D.Young they would indeed
have a formidablo man, and one hard to
beat. During his short service in the
state senate he has won an enviable repu
tation for earnestness, untiring industry,
and clear sighted ability. Ph) sically and
intellectuallv he would fill the measure
of a statesman which would ho an honor
to the district.
Bnt, gentlemen, -while speculating npon
the possible congressional contingencies
which may arise, it might be well to re
mark right here, that Phillips county may
shy her castor into the ring with such a
velocity that its hum will be heard from
eenter to circumference.
