Especially is the result in Ohio gratify ing, because of its bearing upon the national contest close at hand. Eoth parties marshalled their forces to the fullest extent, and the battle was a hotly contested one. The ablest shakers on both sides were sent from all over the country to engage in the campaign, and it was the most thorough and enthusias tic one made since the war. Victory has perched again upon the Republican banners in the Buckeye state, and as the savin-r is. we believe it has "come to stay." One of the noticeable features of the result in both Ohio and Iowa, is the sorry ligure which the so-called Green back party cut. This party, we think, may Ik; regarded as effectually out of polities. The agitation on financial and economical questions which brought that party into existence, undoubtedly did good, but there is now no more use for a distinctive party based on financial questions than there is for five wheels to a wagon, and the intelligent voters ot that party realize this and are rapidly taking their places again in their old parties preparatory to the presidential contest of next year. The grand old Republican party makes a good beginning for 1880, having car ried every state in which there has been an election this year. Roys, buckle on the armor and go marching along. Af- . ter all the fears of Republicans, this country is not to be entirely surrendered to those who seek the destruction of its lCBt features and truest interests. Re member the fight is the same it was in isfll. to establish a fact that this is a Nation t Eggersand Stumbaugh They got it, such as it is. wanted fame. General Grant has gone to Oregon. Ho w ill return to San Francisco about the 20th, and start east about the 2."th. The Land Commissioner gives notice that the Kaw Lands w ill be in market ou and after the M of November, 1870 at Topcka. Ex-Chief Justice Kingman, of the state supreme court, who resigned on account of ill health, has accepted the ollicc of state libartuu. The activity in the lumber trade in the New Rrunswick district is manifest from the rate of wages for lumbermen, which this fall is $18 a month, while at the corresponding time last year It was but ten dollars. 1 lere's what the Kansas Pioneer, or gan of the Greenback party, has to say about fusions. We commend the para graph to Greenbackers: "Coalition is wrong in principle and seldom increases the Greenback vote, and lowers the par ty in the estimation of all classes." The successful working of the nation al banking system has so far excited the admiration of our Canadian neighbors that, as appears from the Washington dispatches this morning. Sir Edward Til ley, the Dominion Finance Miuislcr,has goue to the national capital to investi gate it. It is skilled labor for which there is greatest demaud in these times. The Scientific American mentions that a ro. cent advertisement for twenty-five skilled workmen brought only one application while two others, one for a btok-kecper and another for a clerk, brought 317 and 2:i0 applications respectively. Tilden's funny assertion that he has taken no. steps to secure u nomination, and intends to take none, reminds the New York Tribune of the venerable darkey w ho was discovered lifting a fine pullet from his neighbors hen-roost at midnight, and was asked what he was about: "Yer see, boss, mo and Sam Jones had a 'spute 'bout dese yer hens o' yours. He said dey was Cochin- Chiuans, and I said dey wasn't, and I was jest liftiu' wnc ob dem down kecrful ly to see. Dey don't lay no eggs, do dey, boss? 'Case if dey do, I'se power ful sorry I disturbed them!" Here is a chance for Ike Eaton, of Leavenworth. Capt. George J. Martin, of Effingham, publishes the following chal lenge to the spiritualists of Kansas "Spiritualism as taught by modern spirit ualists has no foundation in fact, but is a sham, a delusion, and a snare, and when combined with truth, reason and logic cannot stand. I will meet any spiritual ist in the city of Atchison, or any other place agreed upon, and discuss the prop position as above stated. Tho party ac centum the challenge will notify me to meet them in Atchison to make all neces sary arrangements for the discussion." DEATH OF M. J. PARROTT. Mark Tarrott is dead. 1 he old settlers and especially those who took part in public affairs, will remember htm as one the most brilliant and generous hearted men among those who engaged in the early struggles of Kansas. lie died at Oak wood, near Dayton, Ohio, last Satur day afternoon. His mother, sister and other relations were with him. It known that he had a stroke of paralysis near two years ago, which nearly depriv ed him of speech, lie was about fifty- one years old. He represented the Terri lory ot .Kansas in congress, and came within one vote of being elected United StuU-s senator at the first senatorial flee lion. He was a natural born orator, and his eloquence called around him a body of adherents, who deemed him fit to fill any place within the gift of tho people of Kansas. GEN. GRANT IN KANSAS. A letter was received at the governor's office yesterday from Gen. Grant. It was iu reply to an invitation from the governor, ou tho part of the otlicers of the Shawnee county agricultural society,' to attend the fair here. The general says he will not come east till about the 1st of November, aud that he hopes to visit Kansas. We have no doubt that he will doi so if he is invited and proper arrange-J incuts are made. We would suggest that there Ims a meeting of our citizens, find a formal invitation bo extended to liim. Topeka can get up a rousing -demonstration, and the people of the state would turn out en uiiu.se. Com monwealth, 12th. Gen. Grant will undoubtedly wish to see Kansas, and no state will give him a more hearty and enthusiastic reoejrtion. If he comes via tho A., T. & S. F. rail road a reception at Emporia might be arranged for and would be attended by an immense multitude. JONES. Ill Treatment by the Greenback JPolltlcUlM. Our Greenback friends lay great claims t freedom from the usual ..influences t iat control other political parties. One of the chief planks in their platform is that "the office should seek the man." They tell us they arc not politicians, nor are they partizans. Actions, however, speak louder than words, and their treat ment of Mr. Wm. J. Jones, lately placed upon their ticket for Register of Deeds, by their own motion, and wjthout Mr. Jones' consent, shows the hollowncss of their high-toned professions. Last year the Greenbackers nominated Mr. Jones for Register without his seeking, and he was elected, enough Republicans sup porting him to accomplish that end. This year, when their convention assemb led, representing about one-third of the county, they sent a committee to Mr. Jones, consisting of YV. li. Ross, L. O. Priest, a Mr. Dumbauld, and Robt. Clark, to ask Jones to accept the nomination from their convention again. lie dis tinctly told them he would not submit his name to their convention. Notwithstand ing this, they nominated him, thus show ing their consistency, so far, in their pro fessions that "the olllce should seek the man." They knew Jones had made a good officer, was accommodating and obliging to the people, and had only been in otlice one ytttr. Rut now mark the re sult. When the Republican convention met with its two hundred and thirteen delegates, representing all parts of the county every township they conclud ed to do an act of justice to Mr. Jones, and to accede to the almost universal de mand of the four or five hundred Welsh Itepublicans of this county, and placed the name of Mr. Jones upon the Repult lican ticket, notwithstanding he had not been elected as a Republican the fall lc fore. The circumstances were peculiar in this case, and the Republicans did not propose to be partizen sticklers in case oi a small county office. This action threw the Greenback man agers into a spasm of partizan virture, and for partizan purposes soley, because they can say nothing against Jones as an officer or man, they repudiated their own voluntary work, and immediately decided to nominate another man for the office. . The statement is being made over the county that Mr. Jones sought and ac cepted the nomination of the Green- backers, ana then sought the same from the Republicans. This is positively not rue. lie distinctly told the Greenback visiting committee that he did not want his name used by the conventoin of that party, vv e very much mistake the sen timents of the people of this county if they will allow the Greenback politi cians, purely from partizan motives, to slander a good man, and a good officer, one who was brought up among us, and who is an honor to the county. THE "SOLID SOUTH" AND THE TREASURY. A year ago the New York Tribune is sued an extra containing the various ar ticles upon the sub)ect of southern claims, which it had published in previ ous months. This compilation, prepar ed from official documents at Washing ton, brought the record of demands up on congress for internal improvements at the south down to March 10, 1878, and for private "relief" to March 20, 1878, and showed the enormous aggregate of sfGoO.OOO.OOO. This vast sum was stated to be only the beginning of what the sol id south would demand. The truth of that statement is proved below. The Tribune has caused the record to be completed from official documents to the close of the extra session of this year, and this is the appalling result: From March, 1878, to July 1, 1879, omitting various blind claims for enormous un specified sums, bills were introduced in to congress calling for $031,8(11,000 for internal improvements in the south, and the private claims amount to $53,415, 942 more. The official records, then omitting the independent estimates of Judge T. W. Eartlcy, counsel for a large number of claimants, prove that within a period of less than two years a solid and disloyal south has demanded from the treasury of the nation which for four years it sought to destroy, and which it now seeks to bankrupt, a sum vastly greater, by reason of the blind claims which are not reckoned, than $1,287,- aui.tiij. these figures need no com ment to show that the rule of the solid south means shame and ruin. ADVANCE IN PRICES. Circular letters lrotn dealers in paper and printing material advise us that pri ces nre advancing, and quoted rates are liable to change any day. Merchants inform us that every line of goods is rising in price, and that their advices from manufacturers and wholesale deal ers arc that the markets are advanciug, and the best they can do is to protect their customers as far as possible. As our lady readers well know, tho staple articles of cottons and prints have got away from the hard-pan prices of some years past, and housekeepers are finding out every day that this and that necessa ry or luxury has "riz." 1 his sudden rise in nearly all prices is a historical repetition of the financial effect of "resuming specie payment. Prices of nearly all articles arc necessa rily depressed while the ellort to resume specie payment is going on, and after resumption is accomplished, and "confi dence restored," the downward tendency of prices stop, and the upward tendency begins, and goes on until the cxpausiou of prices creates an amount of enter prise and borrowing that in time causes a fever of speculation, and an over issue of bank notes. "All goes merry as a mar riage bell" tor u while, till the inevitable collapse a demand for specie aston ishes the people and sends half of tbem into bankruptcy again. That our present currency system will stand better than any previous one we have had, is generally conceded, and that it may be quite a number of years before a suspension of specie payment and the usual financial panic occur again, is very probable. Meantime, we caution our readers to not forget the severe lesson of the past five or six years, and to not buy more than they can pay for. Those who "pay as they go" are always in the best shape to stand both prosperous and adverse times in safety. Over Production. An exchange says : "They begin to think in Pennsylvania there is such a thing as having too much of even such a staple as petroleum. Iu McKean county the flow is so exceedingly generous that no less than 150,000 gallons are said to run to waste daily. The tanks are full and the production is 6,000 bar rels per day much more than can pos sibly be handled to advantage. The streams in that part of the statu are de scribed as being literally rivers of oil while the earth has absorbed such ouan- tities of it that in some places the ground is a mass of greasy mud several inches deep." " A an is always wanting some one to tell him how handsome he looks. A women will just stand before a glass and see for herself. LATEST ELECTION NEWS OHIO AND IOWA FROM!

The Fiat Foolishness Played Out. special dispatcues to the evipokia DAILY NEWS. OHIO. Columbus. Ohio. Oct. 14. I lie elec tion passed off quietly. An unusually large vote was polled, and at lmn-l pic- cincts and immense number ot "ve.-t-pocket" tickets were voted. The Na tionals, in some of their strongholds abandoned their ticket, and while those who had formerly been Itepublicans vo ted for Foster, those who had aililliatcd with the Democrats voted for Ewing. C. M. Daveniort, who claims to be long in Cincinnati, was arrested charged with repeating. Coi.UMitt's, O. Oct. 14. The weather to-day throughout the fctate was very fair,-and iudicut ions are that the heav iest vote ever known in the state has been polled. Columbus, Oct. 14, 10:15. Returns from precincts collected and reported managers of the Western Union Td egiaph Company ofiices throughout the State, show a net gain of 2,TM for Fos ter, (rep.), for governor over the vote for secretary of state in 1873. This indi cates a Republican majority in the state of from 25,000 to 1)0,000. Cleveland, Oct. 14. Midnight jiix teeii wards in the city of Cleveland gave Foster 3,051 majority. The city and county gave Foster about 5,500 majority. The Republicans probably elect the eii tire count' and legislative ticket. Cincinnati, Oct. 14. The vote polled in this city aud county was probably the largest in its history. The day was clear aud pleasant, and a large nuniln r of business men were at the polls a greater part of the day. Returns are coming in very slowly, not one-fifth of the vole j et being known. If the Re publican gain in those reported contin ues the Republican majority in the county will be about 8,000. The name of Williams, the colored candidate for the Legislature on the Republican tick et, has been quite extensively scratched, but it is not unlikely that A illiams and the whole Republican ticket are elected by a majority ranging from 1 ,000 to 3,000. Ihc constitutional amendments were lost sight of entirely. Columbus, Oct, 14. The Chairman of the Democratic State Executive Committee concedes the election of the entire Republican state ticket, but claims that sufficient returns have not been received to determine the com. plexion of the next legislature, and hinks that later returns will show large Democratic gains in several counties of the state. Columbus, Oct. 15. 1:40 a. m.

Since noon re- turns have been received by the Republi can siaie committee, suowing that the liepubl icons have elected twenty-three senators and sixty-scven representatives, which gives them thirteen majority on joint ballot. The Democratic committee do not concede as large a majority as this, and it may take the full official re turns to decide what the exact majority in me .ucgisiaiure win ue. iuc returns wmcn nave been coming in this evening are largely from the De mocratic strongholds, which materially reduce Foster's majority.

The Chicago Tribune, wuich was a Liberal" pajwr in 1872, has interviewed a lanre uumlwr of citizens of Chicago on Gen. Grant and the third term. The Tribune says editorially : "The senti ment of those interviewed may be suc cinctly restated as follows: All agree upon the strong probability of Grant's nomination ; a larjre majority agree in believing that he can be elected, and considerable proportion agree that it will be desirable to nominate and elect him. The Republicans were unanimous in their declaration of support incase he be nominated. This statement includes a fair representation of the "Liberals" who supported Greeley against Grant in 2. The Democrats all seemed to le impressed with the strong hold Gen Grant has upon the people; nearly all conceded his election if nominated ; and a few (quite a large proportion of the number of Democrats who were seen) intimated a distinct purpose of voting for him." DANGER IN WALL STREET, We have so often cautioned our read ers against the whirl-pools now running so furiouely in Wall street, says the New York Mercantile Journal, that we prefer to let our neighbors raise the danger-signal this time, rather than tell again what outsiders may expect if they come in now. The New York Herald says : "f or some weeks an almost, unprece dented speculation has rased in Wall street Even the wildest fever of the war iowowinir me war was eouaiicti in the street last week. TSow undoubtedly the country is once more prosperous; the wheels of industry and trade have begun airain to move: aud Wall street natural ly responds to the new feel in ir of confi- dence Uut what isgoing on down there just now is not wholesome. It is over done. Nothing in the renewed activity of industry and trade, for instance, makes a stock which was quoted at 13 a year ago, a safe purchase now at 38, or one which was quoted at 4 last October now worth 13-; or one which brought 2 at that time worth now. We could extend this list of comparisons, and it would show curiously enough that the great rise has taken place entirely in what are called fancy stocks, securities about the real value ot which the out side people know little or nothing." We advise the general public to stand from under. There was Ixiund to lc general rise in securities irom last year because then prices were too low ; buy. crsaud investors were too cautious. But the pendulum has now swung too far in the other direction, and there will presently be a pause in the street and swinging back to more moderate prices, Then the people wlip have "gone in as the saying is, at the top of the market will be left high and dry, and tho pru. dent and skilled manipulators of the street will go off with their pockets full of other people's money. It is not a matter which affects the country at large. No real or legitimate interest is advanced by the Wall street fever which just now prevails, and none will be injured by the reverses in the street which are sure to come. But we advise everybody to keep out of the street just now. it is a good time to stand from under. SOUTHWEST. Five new buildings arc soon to be erected on Summit street Arkansas City.

The Enterprise say s : It is rumored in Harper county, that the Santa Fe railroad Co. will not build their branch from Wellington to Caldwell, but direct ly to Anthony, the county-scat of narper county.

The balloon weighs 107 pounds ; is 10x inches across the valve; cording 3 lb ot an inch thick canvas only one thickness. The basket has been cut off close to the neck of the balloon. The cording is mostly white colored. 1 here are no letters to be dis covered on the canvas, although they mar nave been enac.ed, as it in a rotten condition. This can hardly be the Wise balloon, as similar balloons have been sent up in Wisconsin at county fairs, and this is probably one of them. The balloon would stand about forty feet in height, and have a carrying capacity of two or tnrce persons. The Tntlian War. Washington, Oct. 11.

The consolidation gives great satisfaction here. The Heft Ppvils in Colorado. Rawlins. Vr. T., Octolier 11. Emi Washber and George Fulir, two couriers just arrived from what was a few days ago White liiver Agency, and trom them 1 learned the following particulars: Gen eral Merritt advanced upon the agency the 11 th inst On his way he found many dead boil les, among others, the bodies ol Carl Goldstein, an Israelite, who left here with government supplies for the lie was found in a deep gulch six miles this side of the agency; was shot twice through the shoulder, lie was about two miles from his wagons. A teamster named Julius Moore, formerly from Bainbridge, Mass., who was with him when he left here, was found about hundred yards from Goldstein, with two bullet holes in his breast and his body hacked and mutilated with a knife or hatchet. As the command advanced through the canyon, they came to an old coal mine. In it was found the body of an agency employe named Dresser, whohad evidently been wounded and crawled in the mine to die. His coat was folded up and placed under his bead for a pillow. Beside him lay a Winchester rifle, and cartridges were found in one of his pock ets. A letter was found, which as near as the courier can remember, was as fol lows : WnrrE River. Sept. 29, 1 p. m. Ma jor Thornburg I will come with Chief uougias and another cniei, anu meet you to-morrow. Everything quiet here. and Douglas is flying the U. S. flag. We have been on guard three nights, and will be to-night; not that we expect any trou ble, but because there might be. Did you have any trouble coming through tue canon ? Signed. N. C. Meeker, U. S. Indian Agent. On entering the agency a scene of great desolation presented itself. All the buildings excepting one were burn ed to the ground, and not a living thing in sight except the command. The In dians had taken everything except flour and decamped. Women and children were missing, and nothing could be found to indicate what became of them They either have been murdered and burned, or else taken away as hostages. Their dreadful and unmentionable fate call 3 fbr the most profound svmoathv. The dead body of Father Meeker was found about a hundred yards from bis bouse, lying on his bade, shot through the head, the left side of his head mashed in with some blunt instrument a piece of a barrel stave driven into his mouth, and one of his hands and arms badly burned. The dead body or v . 11. Post Father Meeker's assistant, was found between the building and river, with a bullet hole through the left ear. and one under the ear. He and Father Meeker were stripped entirely naked. Another employe named Eaton was found dead, stripped naked, and a bun dle of paper bags in his arms. His face was badly eaten by the wolves. A bul let hole was in his left breast Frank Dresser, brother to the man found in the c m! n ine, was found badly burned. He !:a 1 without doubt been killed insta a- t bullet had passed through his !. -it The bodie 7.11 ;i, Thompson; Price, Eskridge, and . i !. i employes not named, were also found. Eskridge was found two miles this side of the agency, naked, and a bullet hole through his head. The position occupied by the Indians during Thornburgh's battle, was in a breast work made of stone, in which was found the body of an unknown white, dressed in buckskin, sitting on his knees, his gun in a position to. fire. He was shot through the forehead. From this it ap pears that the Indians are not alone in the hellish work. The supposition is that the Indians have gone south to join the southern Utes, and the impression among the officers of Merritt's command is that the Indians who fought Thoru burgh numbered at least 700.
