cheerfulness toour invitation to settle up
before Jan. 1, 1887.
Taking in money from them, and at
tending to other urgent work, have kept
us too busy to send out statements of

WA-KEENEY IN THE WEST.
SamH. Kelley, Esq., late of Wa-Keeney,
lias taken charge of the News at Scott
City. Mr. Kelley is a young man of cul
ture and fine address. lie found the
News a Republican journal. We missed
his salutatory, and from the last weeks
issue of his paper we can not make out
that it has any politics. The induce
ment may be strong to cater to the ca
price of the Democratic powers jutt now,
"We do not know that Mr Kelley intends
to do so, but we do know that he can not
afford to adopt this policy. As far as
western Kansas is concerned, nature has
cast her in a Eepublican mold. "Whether
a journalist aspires to political position
or not, is not a question in point. It is
"worth very much to know he is on the
right side of affairs generally.
AN INSANE iAl7.
His Insanity Caused by Land
Troubles at Wa-Keeney.
LnCrobEO Chieftain, 9.
vBnd Swisher, an old settler, of Brook
Sale township, was, Thursday last, tried
"before the probate judge, for insanity,
.and was adjudged insane. Ho will be
taken to the asylum as soon as the
necessary preliminaries can be arranged.
Mr. Swisher has sulTored with asthma for
several years, and about two years ago
Taecame insane, but recovered his reason
after an illness of a few weeks. At the
time, his demented condition was sup
posed to have been caused by an o ver
bose of medicine ho was taking for the
asthma. A few days ago he was com
pelled to go to Wa-Keeney to defend a
contest filed against his claim, and he
returned home to his wife and two chil
dren in a pitiful condition, and it is
supposed that the excitement and trouble
of the contest caused his insanity. Ho
"was an honest, sober, industrious citizen,
and his present condition is very sad,
We acknowledge the receipt of a fantastically-printed
invitation, which reads:

hall-program card, with a sharpened pen
cil attached, accompanied the invitation.
Above the printed matter on the invita
tion card is a handsome monogram,
formed of the letters W. C. L. B., which
stand for W. 0. L. Beard, who has had

The editor of the Quinter Guide seems
to have been greatly annoyed by rumors
that Collyer is spreading reports detri
mental to the inteiests of the town of
Quinter. After d daring such state
ments to be falsehoods, he proceeds to
compare the towns of Collyer and Quin
ter as follows: "Collyer is fourteen years
old and has not got over fourteen build
ings, while Quinter is not one year old
yet, and has about three times, the num
ber of buildings Collver has." Where
the editor received such information, it
would be hard to tell. The present town
site of Collyer was surveyed during the
winter of 1878 and 1879, therefore Collyer
is but eight years old this winter. As to
the number of our buildings, oitbor his
eyesight or his knowledge of arithmetic
was defective. You will need to be
able to count as lrgh as thirty, at
least, Mr. Editor, before j on try to num
ber the buildings of our town. You cer
tainly were never here, or vou could
not truthfully say our town is dead. On
the contrary, it has an extensive cash
trade, and while we have lacked an en
terprising head, such as Quinter has in
the firm of Baker & Sons, to push the
interests of our town, we have success
fully survived the drouthy years, and the
superior advantages of our location are
now attracting much attention, and we
welcome an, ana will give tliem an
opportunity to prove their merit. Collyer
lias suffered from one thing, which most
of our people denounce with as much
spirit as could the editor of the Guide,
viz., tho practice of a few of discouraging
new settlers and new investors. These
few have made their money here, and
could they have their way, would be the
only business men in the place, with the
surrounding country inhabited,. only by
is on the wane, and our entire community
should not be condemned for their faults.
Mr. Chas. A. Cooper, a formerly-of-Wa-Keonoy
man, now lives at Clifton, in
this state. He writes to us that he is a
candidate for doorkeeper or assistant
doorkeeper of tho Kansas house of repre
sentatives this winter. We feel friendly
toward Mr. Cooper, and those who know
him will certainly be ready to concede
