Tonganoxie Mirror: Register Creigh
ton says the ruling interest rate on
farm mortgages in this county is 7 per
- cent. A few mortgages draw as low as
5 per cent, while others double that fig-
i ure. Mr. Creighton says that releases
of all kinds of mortgages are numerons,
in fact much in excess of new ones put
on record.
' MoPherson Freeman-Vim: Henry
"Wischer, residing near Inman, was in
town to make final proof on the north
west quarter of section eighteen, in Su
perior township. This claim had been
taken in 1872 by L. Paul, and later on
Ed Jackson traded a Texas pony for the
same. Mr. Wischer purchased Jackson's
claim and homesteaded it and now makes
final proof.
He made his Home with Rev. and Mrs.
Alderman from the time he was 3 years
old until he became of age, and was a
favorite with them. He was thirty-three
years old, and had been riding the fron
tier as a marshal for nine years. His
wife and family live at Fort Smith, Ark.,
and the funeral will occur there. The
sad news had a serious effect upon Mrs.
Alderman, who was very much attached
to ner nephew, bhe has been in poor
health for some months, and was so
prostrated by the news that a physician
was called.
Quite a sensation was created in
Olathe when there appeared in the
Spring Hill items of the Olathe Mirror
an article from the correspondent of the
paper," saving that "a prominent-minis
ter of this town, in his sermon Sunday
night, loudly denounced the county at
torney as a rascal and a perjurer. The
city officers were also attacked for the
alleged non-prosecution of violators
of the liquor and gambling laws of the
state." As soon as County Attorney
S. D. Scott read the article and learned
that Rev. Everett, of the Methodist
church, was supposed to be the minuter
referred to, he at once issued a subpoena, j
under authority given county attorneys
by the prohibitory laws of the state,
and had the same served on Mr. Everett
commanding him to appear at his office,
in this city Saturday to give evidence,
undor oath, a3 to what he knows in re
gard to violations of the prohibitory
law of Spring HilL Mr. Scott also ac
companied the subpoena with a letter,
eaying that the statement made in the
pulpit la&t Sunday must be retracted
next Sunday and a card published in
the county papers next week also re
tracting the same or action for damages
would immediately follow.

Lebanon Criterion: L. W. Baker, of
Stuart, reports that corn in his neigh
borhood is yielding from twenty to
forty-five bushels per acre, and thinks
the average would be about thirty.
Grainiield Cap Sheaf: The jackrab
bits are destroying the Catalpa trees on
our timber claim. Those who are plant
ing trees should be careful to select
varieties that rabbits will not destroy.
We find that the Russian mulberry,
white ash and the heney locust are the
best varieties.
Ohetopa Democrat: J. M. Morgan,
, late people's party candidate for district
clerk, has been ottered a very important
position in the state house at Topeka.
It is the chief clerkship in the treasurer's
office at a salary of $1,200 with about
$100 on the outside. The only objec
tionable feature is the bond, which is
8100,000, but it is thought Mr. Morgan
can give the bond if he chooses to accept
the place.
Atchison Champion: An Indian
burying-ground has been discovered
about five miles down the river from
Atchison. It ij located on the bench of
a hill facing the river. The graves are
1 covered with stone and present the ap
pearance of being very old. At the
base of the hill may bo seen the remains
of an Indian village. A great many
relics have been picked up in the fields
along the creek at this place. The
graves probably contain many valuable

Junction City special: First Sergeant
George Loyd, I troop, Seventh cavalry,
one of the oldest soldiers at the post,
committed suicide by shooting himself
through the head. Death was almost
instantaneous. Sergeant Loyd has seen
hard service and has been wounded a
number of times. At the battle of
"Wounded Knee he was shot through

then he has had two ribs broken and it

Stafford People's Paper: At the
horse sale Tuesday the stock sold very

a year old in the spring sold for 87.75
to $10 each. Grown horses sold at
about $20. The horses were rather
light but fairly well bred, and would
make good driving horses.
Buffalo Advocate: It is said that
there is getting to be a large number
of cheap "plug" horses in this part of
the country, and that the feeding of
them this winter will be quite an item.
There certainly are a great many more
horses around here than there is anv
need of, and they are too "pluggy" to
sell on the market.
Cedar Vale Star: G. M. Carpenter is
feeding 25,000 bushels of corn to stock
cattle this winter, but is full feeding
none. He has only missed full feeding
one winter in the past twenty-five until
this, but thinks he will never winter feed
another bunch of cattle. He will put
corn into them, though, taking them
through the winter in good shape, and
market from grass in June and July.
There were more feeder buyers at the
Kansas City, Kan., yards than for some
days. The break in the market ni
2530 cents per cwt. Friday brought
back a number of buyers that were here
the first of the week and returned heme
without any cattle. They saved by
the week's delay from $2.50 to $3. per
head on 1,000-pound steers quite a
consideration.
South Haven New Era: Distemper
of the most virulent type is prevailing
among the horses in this section. In
some cases the veterinary has had to
cut open the windpipes of the distressed
animals and insert bottle necks for
them to breathe through. A number of
horses have choked to death before
relief could be given. Asafcetida
placed in the feed box or wrapped on
tne bridle bit where horses are being
used, is taid to be a good preventive
for the disease.
From the Kansas City. Mo., Journal.
It will be the natural tendency of
those who do not read for themselves to
look upon the result of the late election
as a proof that all the arguments of
the republicans were pure inventions
for campaign purposes. Especially is
this likely to be the case in regard to
the McKinley tariff law and its relations
to the American laborer. But a little
study of the news columns of the daily
papers, now that the election is over
and all foreign news con be considered
solely on its merits, will show that at
least one important argument used by
the republican press was not only well
founded, but that the predictions that
were based upon it are already being
fulfilled.
The voter was told that the policy of
the democratic party, call it free trade
or by any other name, is the policy that
has the full sympathy of the English
press and public. He was told that the
law which closed the doors of the Eng
lish factories was opening the, doors of
hundreds of factories on our own soil
for the employment of American labor.
Ee was told that laborers employed
on this s'de the water would consume
American farm products, and that the
building up of competitive industries
would provide against extortionate
prices under the law that provides pro
tection agaicst foreign competition.
The very first dispatches from Lon
don following the announcement there
that the "tariff for revenue" party had
gotten control of the government, tell
of the joy that prevails among all
classes. The outcome of the election is
the most gladsome news that the cable
has ever given them, In a diepatd to
the St. Louis Republic, good demo
cratic authority, it is stated that "in
the great industrial centers of popula
tion throughout the midlands and the
north, in every shipping port, and in
fact, wherever throughout the kingdom
men of affairs gathered together on
"Wednesday, this subject ' drove every
other from their thoughts and talk."
If this means anything, it means
just what republicans undertook to im
press upon the minds of the voters. It
means that England rejoices in the suc
cess of Cleveland because its own in
dustries weie being wiped out by the
policy of the republican party. There
need be no dispute as to the meaning
of free trade ill this connection, Eng
land knows what free trade is, and it
knows what "tariff for revenue" means
as well The London Times says the
tariff proposed by the democratic plat
form is what is known in England as
free trade. It is the triumph of that
painciple that all England is celebrat
ing. The circumstance is worthy of
mention now simply as proof that the
republican party made a campaign of
honest arguments.
any other countries that are nowtakia
large quantities of our products.
It remains to be seen whether the
democratic party will dare touch "that
fraud" with a destroying hand.
THE SHAM STILL WOTKS.
From the Kansas City, Knn., Gazette.
Chairman Briedehthall says there will
be a great number of farmers in Topeka
at the inauguration; that they never
saw an inauguration and that they
never elected a governor before, and
they will have Borne curiosity to see him
inaugurated. The money lenders, com
mission men. bankers and broken-down
lobbyists, running the people's party
evidently take the Kansas farmers for a
lot of yawps. Of the ten governors Kan
sas has had up to date, three of them,
Robinson, Harvey and Glick, never did
anything else than farm; and they re
side on their farms yet. Carney was a
merchant, Martin a newspaper publisher,
Crawford, St. John and Humphrey were
lawyers, and Osborn and Anthony gen
eral hustlers. Carney was the only
one among them that had any means,
and a leading manipulator of the
people's party to-day helped bleed him
into bankruptcy. Every legislative
body that over assembled in Kansas
contained a majority of farmers. There
is not a law on the Btatute book to-day
that was not made by farmer "votes in
the legislature. How tiresome this
farmer racket is! and how long can the
sham be worked?

AMERICAN DOCTRINE.
From the Atchison Champion.
Our London cablegram is a prettj
effectual answer to the democratic cam
paign liars. "The robber tariff" they
said was the cause of the "strikes,"
"tramps" and "poverty" in this coun
try. The horrible condition in England
and Europe where "the blessings of free
trade" and the much boasted democratic
"unrestricted trade" have full, swing,
seems to show that the democratic cam
paign liars are confronted by "a condi
tion, not a theory," and a very serious
condition it is too. Another thing Mr. j
Cleveland and his mends will do well
to bear in mind is, that the "single gold
standard" prevails in those countries
where famine, strikes and tramps are
now doing their deadly work. Free
labor, and plenty of it, is the American
doctrine.

The Santa Fe paid over a million and
a half dollars for taxes last year.
The total amount of taxes levied upon
railway property in Shawnee county,
for all purposes, as assessed by the
state board of railway assessors for the

of state, is S31,547".67.
Topeka special: Notice was given
here that W. S. Pdge, assistant general
superintendent of the Rock Island west
of the Missouri river, had resigned, and
that all business heretofore transacted
by him would be looked after by C.
Dunlap, general superintendent.
The Kansas Swine Breeders' associa
tion, the State Poultry association and
the Stock Dealers' association, all of
wh;rh are to meet in Topeka during
January, have applied for red need rates.
A one and one-third rate will probably

inaugural ceremonies.
KANSAS CHURCHES.
A Washington correspondent says:
"Simpson's treachery and hypocrisy
assisted in its defeat last session. The
cattlemen on the strip had promised to
vote their cowboys for Simpson if he
would play the role of a traitor to the
wishes of the people of the Seventh dis
trict. "He followed out his part and it is
now known that illegal voters from the
strip were permitted to vote at certain
places where all the election judges were
alliarce men, and they came in strong
enough to save Simpson from defeat.
His conniving with cattle plutocrats on
the strip extended his job and salary
two years. This much he got out of
it that is visible to any one who has been
in a position to get at his schemes here
and knows how the cowboys voted on
the border.
"Those who are deeply interested in
opening the strip have no hopes of get
ting Simpson's support. They, know
ing he was controlled by the Cherokee
strip cattlemen before, of course will re
main their lobbyist, as the job having
paid him so well so far it will not be in
the makeup of hiB appetite to give it up.
"It has always been true that the
strongest opposition, in fact the only
formidable opposition, to getting lands
open in the territory has come from
the cattlemen, who are financially inter
ested. They put up the financial oppo
sition, which is a power when it hitB a
certain class of office-holders. They will
fight the treaty ratification bi.l just as
hard this session as ever, and, it is
feared, will control Simpson and others.
How to overcome the same old enemy
is the question.
"The talk to day between Secretary
Xoble and Senator'Platt had also some
Ihing to do with statehood for certain
territories, Oklahoma included. The
secretary favors statehood for Oklahoma
just as soon as congress can act. He
is heartily in favor of legislation to this
extent, and aleo favors opening the
atrip."
TOTAL POLITICAL DEPRAVITY.
There is much talk about the sensa-
tional trip of Gorman, Carlisle and Brice
to New York. The best authority puts
it down as a rank political fake. It is
known to a certainty that the particular
trio now in New York would do every
thing in their power to prevent the sen
ate from being democratic. They are
not in ew iorK lor the purpose ol
making the senate democratic, but to
see if anything can be done secretly, ac
cording to Gorman's plan of doing bus
iness, to keep it from being democratic.
They want the senate to remain repub
licrn so they will not be expected ta
keep their campaign promises. This,
may startle the honest people of tha
country who do not understand the
total depravity of the Gorman school ol
politics.
State Treasurer elect W. H. Biddle
has recovered from- his recent sickness
and is able to be out.
D. D. Hornaday, of Abilene, has

Legislature of 1868.
John M. Price has issued the follow
ing call:
The association of officers and mem

its twenty-fifth anniversary at the state
capitol in Topeka, January 16, 1893, at
4 o'clock in the afternoon. All state
officers and members of the legislature
of 1868 are members of the association
and are urgently requested to be pres
ent at meeting. The annual election of
officers of the association will be held at
this meeting, and addressos will be de
livered by Hons. John M Price, Benja

W. L. DeGroff.
During the past year the American
Sunday School union has organized
1,664 schools, with 66,000,'scholars. In
these, 6,600 persons have been oonvert-
eu. iu Buuiiion z,zv scnooiE were f

4,536 were aided a second time, with
325,000 scholars, a total of 8,827 schools,
with 541,000 scholars; 15,573 Bibles
and Testaments were distributed and
56,582 families visited.
At the close of this service the con

THAT FRAUD.
A correspondent of the New York
Tribune, writing from Havana, shows
that there was, in 1892, an increase of
Cuba's imports from the United States
of $9,586,862. Ho save that the reduc
tion of the duty on flour, brought about
through the reciprocity treaty, "gave
the American millers complete control
of the Cuban market, the price of fiour
having been reduced $4 and $5 per
barrel in that market in consequence."
And while this is true it is also true
that meats, lard and many other classes
of provisions which were formerly
brought from other countries are now
imported from the United States.
And yet the democratic platform
pronounces reciprocity a fraud, and the
peopto havo placed that party in power
that is pledged to give our markets to
the foreigner instead of making him
pay for thorn.
We have secured the Cuban market
for our PoTir, meats and other farm
products, because and only becauso we

From the L'eloit Gazottc.
As a proof of the wonderful extrava
gance and corruption of the republican
party, the alliance journals should lay
before their readers the fact that the
Kansas state board of charities, durincr
the two years ending July 1, 1892, re
turned to the state treasury $61,933.96
of the amount appropriated to run the
several state charitable institutions
during that time. The largest snrplua
was from the fund for the Topeka in
sane asylum $18,265.74. Of the In
dustrial school appropriation, $1,902.18
was not used. Such facts as these give
the lie to nine-tenths of the idiotic
howls made during the recent state
campaign.

From the Philadelphia Press.
The "15,000 survivors of the Mexican
war, with 7,000 widows," who are on
the pension list, fill an evening contem
porary witfh surprise because "the
United States never had much over half
of 22.000 men actually engaged in the
war with Mexico." Quite true, but
Grover Cleveland signed a pension bill
giving a service pension to everyone
who had enlisted for the Mexican war
and been a thort time on the rolls,
whether he ever went to the frent or
not. And, it will be generally remem
bered that the Mexican war pensioners
referred to were, almost all of. them,
confederate soldiers later on.
CONFEDERATE BONDS.
From the Locdon, Lag., Mcney Market Review.
The impending return to power in the
United fctates of the democratic party
opens agreeable prospect to a large
number of English as well as continental
investors who are interested in various
forms of paper issued by the southern
states. The democratic party has always
been considered identified in an especial
degree with the interests of the south;
while the converse has held good with
regard to the republicans. The shifting
of political power which has just taken
place, there'ore, is necessarily of good
augury for southern interests.
FIFTEEN THOUSAND PUK Utwi.
From the New York Mail and Express.
In 1881 the total production n the
United States of wire nails amounted to
30,000 kegs.
In 1891, after ten years of republican
protection, our production of wire nails
mq 4.500.000 kess.
This Increase of 4,070,000 kegs, oH
14,800 per cent, was principally due to
republican protection.
. If tha democrats could see just how
to wipe out protection without 'P
out wages and revenue, they would M
a irood deal happier.
SuDreme Court Decision.
Among the decisions handed down by
the supreme court during the present
sitting was the one in the case of J. M.
Myers et al, against Sallie O. Smith, in
which case the decision was in favor of
Mrs. Smith. The case involves the title
to oyer 1,800 acres of land in Wyan
dotte county that is worth, at a very
'moderate estimate, fully $40,000. It
includes the town-site of the village of
Vance, and the farms of J. M. Myers,
Mr. Mallott, and a number of other
prominent citizens there.
The point in the case is the validity
of the will of the late Isaac Johnny
cake, who was chief of the Delaware In
dians until he met a tragic death down
in the Nation, about fifteen years ago.
The tract of land was occupied by
him for years and was known as the
Johnnycake homestead. Shortly after
his death a paper purporting to be his
last will and testament was produced,
filed in the court and probated. The
will was drawn according to the laws
and customs of the Cherokee nation,
and was probated in a Cherokee court
and supposedly in due and legal form.
By the provisions of the will the entire
estate was left to his sons, being divided
into a number of large farms. The
widow and daughters were left out en
tirely, and as such an act created muoh
comment, and after a time, when the
sons hid sold the farms to the present
occupants) and they had been unproved
and become very valuable, Mrs. Sallie
O. Smith, one of his daughters, having
become convinced that the will was void,
began ejectment proceedings against
the parties.
It was fought through the lower
court and finally landed in the supreme
court, where it was argued and submit
ted. The court took it under advise
ment and the decision has long been
delayed,- in order to give ample time for
its consideration.
It was not proven positively that the
paper was the will of the late Mr.
Johnnyeake, and the farther fact was
demonstrated tfeat.tbe will was not pro
bated properly and according to law, so
that the carrying avA of its purported
provisions was without the warrant of
law and consequently illegal.
The 1,800 aores of land in the old
Johnnycake hosaestead thus come back
to the "widow and children of the ds
esasid to be divided according to law.
