The next beat thing to the election re turns last evening was that roast pig of Mra. W. H. Severy'a at the M. E. festi- val. It was just too splendid for any thing but to eat. The tax rolls of Lyon county for 1880 are now In the handa of the treasurer, and parties who wish to atep up to the captain's office and settle will find the latch-string out. We don't believe that Jake Moon wouia entertain tne proposition or a sure passport to heaven to-day, for a aingle moment Emporia's good enough for him just now. We regard it as ouly due to Harry .Norton's life-long devotion to the Demo cratic party that he be appointed to ad minister upon the effects of the Fusiou ticket in Lyon county. The election Tuesday was remarka bly quiet, and while there waa a big vote polled and the interest was intense, the best of order prevailed, and not a drunk en man was seen on the streets. A. A. Wells brought us a fishing pole of Osage hedge, on Monday. It waa cot from hia father'a farm and ia about fif teen feet long, and the astonishing part of tbia item is that the stock ia a aingle year'a growth. Rev. A. B. Tomlinson, who haa con. aented to act aa a supply for the Bap. tists of Emporia till a permanent pastor can be secured, occupied the pulpit Sun. day and preached an excellent aermon in the morning. The fence enclosing Fremont park ia undergoing repairs, and the owners of cows are already declurinz that Dan Hammond, under whoae supervision the work is progressing, should be ousted from the office of street commissioner. A small patch was burned in the roof of a atone building belonging to Mr. A Oillett, on Sixth avenue, yesterday morning. The fire companiea were out very promptly, and succeeded in arrest ing tne names before any damage waa done. This i the second time in the history of the United Stataa when a national election haa fallen on Tuesday, Novem- bcr 2d, the first beiog at the first election of Washington. It will not occur again for 120 years, when everything now in existence will be dead. Eakridge thinks it's the biggest snow storm he's seen since 186A. Randolph should not be so awful blue. The amendment went through. The Republicans will buy the biggest Thanksgiving turkies thia year. Do the smelling committee sniff any. thing dead in the air this morning? The colored troops fought nobly. If yon don't believe it ask Eskridge. Eskndge flopped over to the Democ racy juat in time to be in at the death. The frame work of the extension to the Santa Fe depot waa raised yesterday. The telegraph wire on the Howard branch line ia strung as far as Madison.

The Pleasure Seekers we learn, have consummated an arrangement by which they hare secured Bancroft Hall for their series of social dances. It is pro posed now that the two clubs "chip in1 on a canvass for the floor, which will serve the purpose and lighten the ex penses of both. Rev. Mr. Howard, the miaalon preach. er who nas been carrying on a very suc cessful revival at the A- M. E. church for the past week, closed hia meeting Sunday eveniug and started for Howard. During his stay in Emporia there1 were quite a number of accessions to the membership of the church. Deacon Paisley struggled with the sit uation quite manfully till the newacame in from Maine. But when that sockdol oger alruck the old man between the eyes, he"amoled a smile" which haa been frequently observed on the face of the base-ball ist after catching a hot ball in the pit of hia atomach, and yielded up nia last nope in tne salvation or the country.

Friday evening of thia -week will be given "New Year'a Eve," one of the fin est cantatas now extant by a company of our young people and children. They have been under the careful drill of Mr. Nutting for several weeks, and are well up in their various parts. The costumes are now being prepared, ana notbmg will be left undone to make the occasion one of interest and enjoyment. There will be aeveral fine tableaux. We give below the cast of characters, that people may form some idea of the cantata: CAST. Old Year S. T. Murphy; Father Time J. W. Murphy; Santa CI sua Capt. A. M. Summers; New Year Bud Torrington.

At the outset of the hurrah campaign, Tom Price had the sand to take in the following exceedingly soft anap: Tom has a steer of such gigantic proportions and whose hide is so white, that if Bar- num had ever run afoul of the wonder he would have promptly made it the nucleus of a bonanza by exhibiting it as a new species of sacred horned elephant from Siam. Well, John Atyeo, who waa juat more than booming for Hancock shortly after the Cincinnati convention, agreed with Price that if Garfield was was elected lie would pay ten cents a pound for the steer, and that in the event of Hancock's success Tom was to give him the "critter" aa a gratuity. We will not dwell on the sequel, but would merely observe that, aa the animal in question could very eaaily hold an or dinary wagon load of corn on hia ample back, he promises to prove about as ex pensive an article in the line of stock the world has seen since the chil dren of Isreal melted np their spare change and earrings and convene! them into the famoua golden calf. The fourth sociable of the Episcopal church people was held at the rectory last evening. There waa a large attend ance and every one entered beartly into the sociablencss so characteristic of these pleasant gatherings. Prof. Sadler, of the Normal faculty, read three very line selections witb marked success. With Miss Inness aa organist, Messrs. Bacheller and Burnett and Mrs. Burnett snd Mrs. Burrows, sang a beautiful piece with admirable effect. Mrs. Chaa. S. Cross followed with a nolo which ahe rendered with ail Her decided and su perior musical ability. In the old fashioned play of "Blind Man'a Buff" many of the large assem blage renewed the days of their youth. Coffee, chicken salad and other good things contributed their abare in em- phasing the pleasure which was felt by all in this pleasant sociable. The next one will be held at the house of Mrs. Dr. Young, on Wednesday evening the 17th inst. Atchison Globe: Senator Ingalla has in his possession autograph letters of General Garfield, and any man familiar with manuscripts will at once declare, on comparing them with the alleged Chinese letter, that it is an impudent and mendacious forgery, both in body and signature. Mr. Ingalls will ahow these letters to any fair-minded man who boa a suspicion that the pre tended fac-simile published in a liar's organ called The Truth, is genuine. We do not make this statement because Gar- field ia a Republican, but because a flock of hungry wol'ea have forged hia sig nature to a sentiment he never uttered for the purpose of doing him an injury. We despise an action of this kind in na tional as well as local politics, and would defend tho devil against it The ladies lock their iniaitory lesson in local pontics Tuesday, and put in a faithful day at the polls in behalf of the temperance amendment As the liquor question ia one which bears directly upon the weal or woe of the home, it is one of vital interest to wives and mothers, and while their ac tive participation in the effort to pro hibit the traffic by legislation has been closely criticised, it will hardly be de nied that the end justifies the means, and that women may with perfect propriety take the step which they did Tuesday. Within the past two months more rain has fallen in western Kansas and south ern Nebraska than the oldest inhabit ant has ever seen before during hia real dence in tue country. The section we speak of is beyond the railroads, and in a part of the country where rain is una sua). A commercial traveler who lately returned from there was frequently de tained by swolen streams and mud. Aa result fall wheat looks splendid, and the people are full of hopes for the fu ture. Much of the seed wheat furnish ed by the different railroads went into this country. ,Mr. J. R.

We heard much contrariety of opiuion -as to the propriety of the ladies attending at the voting precincts yesterday. They worked bard, late and early, for the temperance amendment, and did loyal service. The voting placea were comparatively quiet and orderly, and all agree that the ladies acted witb prudence and tact We hear no unfavorable criticisms. Tally one for the W. C. T. U. We were in error in slating that Presi dent Hayes and party passed through Emporia on their way east on Saturday morning. The special train bearing the chief executive went through on Satur day night at about half-past 8 o'clock. It stopped for some little time at the round house, and the president came out on the platform and shook hands with a small gathering assembled at the place, and one man was so happy aa to obtain hia autograph. interest in the Ledger book-bindery and job office of W. F. Chalfant, and- the style of the new firm will be Chalfant & Graham. We feel to congratulate both the parties to this transaction, aa we re gard the interests of an already excellent business largely subserved by the addi tion of -capital and energy with which Mr. Graham will supplementthe already demonstrated ability of the senior part ner in the management of this fine estab lishment The festival given by the ladies of the Congregational church at the Butler grocery room Monday evening was lib erally patronized, aad was conducted with that large measure of success which attends all the enterprises of the capable management which had it in charge. The tables were beautiful, the viands par excellence, and the ladies so agreeable and attentive, aa to render the repast doubly enjoyable and satisfactory. we regret to aay that np to going to press we have been unable to get the returns from Neosho Rapids. We can only learn that the total vote cast there was 22? and that Randolph's majority over Sedgwick waa 70.

While hints have been given, from time to time, of the ladies temperance organization to which they have given much of their time during the last two weeks, the real work they have been planning and syatemizing has been kept comparatively quiet; but when the dty for the battle had come, the end toward which their deliberations had tended was plain. We are informed that at their meeting the advisability of several different methods to aid in carrying tbe amend ment waa discussed, but true to their in stincta of intelligent ladies at the time of a crisis, less effective plans were voted down and the braver one ot going into tbe center of the fight waa adopted. Accordingly, shortly after the opening of tbe polls yesterday, a number of our worthiest, most intelli gent and leading ladies took their places at the polls and went quietly and ear nestly and we believe prayerfully to work for the amendment, and that alone. In their minds the Second and Third wards and the voting precinct at Fow lers were the places most likely to give majority against it, and right into the midst of whiskydom they went And it is the verdict of all right minded men that we have never had so orderly an election day; at the polls where drunk enness and profanity have heretofore prevailed more or less, good order and sobriety were noticeable. The ladies aay they heard not a profane nor otherwise rude word during the day.' And we wish every true - man : in town had witnessed tbe dignified bravery of there ladies, some of whom are proverbially modest and timid. But this causa was near to their hearts and give us a true woman for effective work under those circumstances. ' There was quite a number out as it was, and reinforcements were coming in at diff erent times of the day, but the supper at the hall, aud duties and sickness in many homes kept many away whose hearts were in the work. The credit of the large majorities for the amendment at the doubtful polls is unanimously accorded tho ladies who worked them. After what we aaw yesterday, we feel constrained to aay that we believe Kan sas works against her own interests by not extending the right of suffrage to intelligent ladies. Let us have, first, an amendment making educational ability the qualification for voting, and stand ing beside it, one to extend the right to qualified ladies. We ahould like to see Kansas take the front rank in this next great atep that is sure to come. B. Mining; Maws Aa Emporiaa ia X.nck Eckeka, Col., Oct 22 Eds. Daily News : Among the many bona fide enterprises attracting attention in this mining section, is one worthy of especial mention, to your home people, as it had its conception, and has been fully established upon a sound and sub stantial foundation by your .worthy townsman, H. C. Cross and his brothers of Burlington. I herewith give you a statement of the "Tom Moore," and "Byron," Mining and Tunnel company, Organized with Hon. ' H. C. Cross aa president and Col. R. 8. Cross, superin- dent This company owns two claims of 1,500 feet in each or 3,000 linear feet up on the same view, whose outcrops along its surface shows' from 8 to 40 feet in width carrying numbers of ore strata, feeding across, and converging to tbe stronger ore channels following each wall. At the main working or lower tunnel, there ia a large and commodious office and smitUey with ore house, also two cabins. This tunnel was run in along and with the vein during the summer's contracts 160 feet, having mineral throughout the entire workings since the vein was reached and penetrat ed, and ' this through the most broken ground of the whole claim. Upon the Byron" surface ground there has been six openings or excavations made, all of which show well in ore, especially along the banging wall. It is estimated that this, the lower or Byron tunnel, in run ning 900 feet from its present terminus, or face, will strike and cut the dividing or end line of the two claims at 1,100 feet in depth, all ores being easily stoped down and cheaply extracted for ship ment to mill or market. The "Tom Moore" claim and mine joins on to the north end line of tbe Byrou mine. This mine has three open cuts, showing finely in ore and much greater strength of vein and width of the different ore floes. At the main winter workings a good strong seriea of build ings have been constructed, for boarding, blackamithing, ore storage, &c. The tunnel was in 60 feet from its mouth at the commencement of tbe winter con tracts, and had four feet of mineral, with a four-foot gouge or vogue of tron and manganese, carrying aome high grade, grey copper ore. Upon both of these tunnels Mr. Cross, the superintendent, has let 250 feet each, and' has his con. tractors fully supplied for winter, (some. thing few mines and superintendents can assert In this section this year,) and as a consequence these minea are being opened at the rate, or average, oi two and a-half feet every twenty-four hours. The ores are alike of both claims, be ing the same vein. But as this vein is cropped by five other veins, owned by the same company, at their intersection richer and larger ore bodies are anticipn ted and known to exist Oilier ores so far produced are galena, with some zinc bleude and bismuth, antimonial galena ores, grey copper and some sulphates of silver along the hanging walls in its many vogues or pipes of manganise and iron. Assaya taken from the veins. openings ana developments at tbe com mencement of winters' contracts, gave from 20 to 400 ounces of silver per ton with from 45 to 55 per cent of lead. Ex pensive shipments of surface ores by ourros" or lacka to Lake dty, over mountain trails, netted 71 ounces of ail ver nd 63 per cent, oi lead per ton to the company; and if the company ahould desire it they can any day throw from 20 to 25 tons of ore daily into market with a amall force of men. as their property shows ore everywhere, and some or the present openings look as handsome and brilliant as a first class jewelry establishment Much credit is due Hon. H. C. Cross for the permanent manner upon' which he haa based his developments. They have a certainty of large bodies of rich ore through their winter's work, and will save their lower grade ore for better demand and prices at the advent of the railroad next season. When this com pany shall be fully compensated and re. munerated for their advance and outlay, and it ia well to state here, that very few. men are as energetic, consclentous and have their company'a welfare so fully at heart aa Col. R. S. Cross. Within a few months he wi'l be fully repaid, In hav ing the honor and satiafaction of open ing one of the best, and most regular ore producers of the San Juan silver fields.

' A monkey and parrot episode is re ported at Americns Monday afternoon, on the occasion of Mr. Lynn's so-called expose of the alleged judicial fraud in this district While pouring out the vials 'of his wrath upon certain parties in this city, who, be said, were working Against his election, Sir. Lynn made the statement that he bad been duped in the matter of the bond suit, which, he declared had, in his judgment, been in stituted and carried on for political pur poses, and that the parties which had been instrumental in its prosecution had sold him and his partner out, through the agency of Snoddr, whose business it was to call oft the dogs when the purpose for which tbe proceedings had been instituted, bad been accom plished. As this everlastingly knocked the wind out of the fraud yell with which ,the "reformers" in the present canvass have been hound. ing Sedgwick, Air. William A. Ran dolph, the candidate for county attorney on the Fusion ticket, who chanced to be in the house, arose and accused Lynn of selling him out and trading with Sedg wick's friends, whereupon a .scene en sued which In characterized as double- distilled richness by those who were so happy as to be there to see. " SHiile the editors of what is denominated by Esk ridge, Randolph & Co. as a "vile, lying sheet," may contemplate these ardent amenities among the mongrel candidates with much the same degree of compos ure with which the Indiana woman noted the progress, of , the, struggle, be tween her husband and the bear, the public will doubtless be sorely afflicted to learn that tbe unselfish measures in. stituted by tbe Fnsionists to unearth the fraud and corruption of the "ring" are not marked by that effective measure of harmony and singleness of purpose which should characterize all purely reformatory movements. .

A Lofty Lay-ont, The ladies of the M.-E.' church have every reason to feci gratified over the splendid success ot their entertainment at Bancroft Hall last evening. Not only did the festival prove a very lucrative venture in a pecuniary way, but it was bo- thoroughly enjoyable that no one who was present could be aught else but delighted with the ample provisions made by the excellent management for their delecta tion. The tip-top supper' was seasoned with the tidings of a glorious national and local Republican victory, intelli gence of which was read from the stage from time to time, and as good humor prevailed on all hands, it would be dif ficult to conceive of a more de sirable place , to be.- We have not learned anything uennitc re garding the proceeds but wc know that the stock, of provisions was almost com pletely cleaned out, and that the church treasury was very handsomely rein forced. Tbe Closing Rally At Bancroft hall Monday night was the grandest Republican meeting of the can vass, and nothing could have added to its success save enough additional room to . accommodate the scores of people who were turned away for want or ac- Kmmodatton. The meeting was most ably addressed by C. B. Graves and Joe Waters, both capital speakers, and who talked to signal advantage to the im mense audience. The sound arguments and dignified manner of Mr. Graves contrasted with the quick - lnva- city and ready speech of Water3, who kept the bouse in a continual roar by his admirable points and apt illustra- trations. The music added greatly to the general interest, and taking the meet. ing all in all, it reflected great credit up on the committee which has managed the local campaign with such entire satis faction to the party. , . ' Hallow E'en at Culdees. The merry and time-honored festival of hallow e'en was very pleasantly cele brated at Culdees, the country residence of W. J. Huggins, on last Saturday night, by a party of Emporians who availed themselves of the hospitality of their kind entertainers, and yielding to the mirthful spirit of, ..the occasion en joyed a happy evening in the practice of all those amusing vagaries which have attached time immemorial to this an cient anniversary. The matrimonial horoscope was cast for the young folks of tbe party, one stately bachelor was converted into a burnt-cork end-man by a mysterious process of mesmerism, and many other laughable diversions were crowded into an evening which will long be remembered by all who participa ted in iU festivities as one of rare sport and thorough enjoyment. ot the Episcopal church people will be held at the rector's on Wednesday evening, 3rd inst.

The San Jose Daily Herald of a recent date, in reviewing . a performance giv en in that city for the benefit of tbe La dies' Benevolent Society, has the follow ing to say of the Emporia talent which contributed to the success of the enter t& in merit: "Miss M. F. Estabrook, of the east, made her first appearance be fore a San Joso audience, and was well received. She gave several recitations and showed herself equally at home in comic, pathetic and sentimental selec tions. The lady makes a fine appear ance and possesses a melodious voice, ad mirably trained, and a mobility of coun tenance that lends attraction to her elo cutionary efforts." Pram fu&sm Graves.
