If you will do thnt you will Im alu-atl in money, reputation and uappiuraa iu five years from now. The coutinutd growth of Kuuttu! Ci'y is one of the marvels of the day. The occasional visitor' ut:entlou is each time attracted to the new blocks of fine three, four and five story buildings which would be an ornament as well as a credit to any western city. In a couple of years more there will undoubtedly be 100,000 people in Kansa City. Mr. Hayes is quoud by a Welshman who recently visited this country as ex. pressing high appreciation of the Welsh character. Radnor, Ohio, was, the pres ident stated, thickly p opled by emigrant Welshmen and descendants of the emi grant Welshmen, and that p:ut of the state was notable for tbc eminent men to whom it had Given birth. America was proud of its Welsh citizens. Mr. Brown, who his just been clecttd to the senate from Georgia, was formerly a Republican, and supported Grant in his first term. He is not now a Bourbon He is an independent Democrat, and represents the interest in Georgia which Mahone represents in Virginia. It is a little strange that such a man could be elected from Gcorjria at this time. It is one of the signs, wo think, of the break up which is sure to come to the south sooner or later. Brown is a man brains. Tho following significant item is from the New York Public: The St Louis Globe-Democrat reports that orders have been given to send large portion of the Kansas I'acifle bus! nesa over the Missiouri, Kansas & Texas railroad from Junction City, Kansas, nud also to take freight from the Atchison Topeka & Santa Ke, at Einnorist, on the name line, the object being to send busi ness from both roads around by the Mis souri, Kansas A Texas, so as to avoid Kansas City and escape the division re quired by tho existing pool at that place. The order was made so thai Mr. Goul could avoid the pooling arrangement at Kansas City. At Junction City lie gets on his own road, the M. K. & T. Tope ka now wants a connection with Ottawa. General Grant disposes completely the absurd reports about a bargain be. twecn him and General Garfield at Men tor. Tho Boston Journal says it hus rc eclved a private letter from a gentlenu: who dined with General Grant in Brook lyo a lew days ago in which thin paKsngi occurs: "In the latter part of the even Ing some remarks were made about Men tor, when the General said, looking ine right In the face with his frauk, clear eyes: 'The reported bargain at Mento was not true. There was nothing said to Garfield but that which was said the presence of a 1 urge number of peopl lor lucre was no time wtnlu we were there that we were not surrounded by Crowd, and there was no private inter view sought or held. There was no bar gain whatever.' This was caid in a -calm, clear, firm voice, which is his characteristic, and the conversation turn ed on other subjects." The country will believe Grant.

Council Grove Repub lean. The Commonwealth copies th nlmvc and adds : Mr. Mnnscll is well-known to our readers as the author of a series of let ters la the Commonwealth about eigh teen months ago on the currency ques tion. He showed rare ability as a writer, and we presume is ably qualified for a speaker. Our acquaintance with Mr. Munscll is but slight, but from what we know of him we have no doubt but that he is quahflod for tho place, and that he will have an enthusiastic following. A significant article by the Hon. Geo. 8. Bout well in tho North American Re view for December, entitled "Tho Fu ture of the Republican Party," Is sure to arrest public attention. Written after the result of the elections h id been as certained, this article defines the xsition which the Republican party is in logic and in policy bound to assume toward the southern states. Concession, com promise, conciliation, the author says in substance, will no longer b? tolcnrutcd. No person Is to be admitted to a seat in the senate unless the record of bis elec tion is clear. New laws arc to lie p.-uscd for the supervision and protection f the ballots in the elections of memliers of the house of representatives and presi dential electors. The civil mng. istratca must have the means within call (the army) of protecting the ballot and keeping the peace. The United States must insure to the people of each state a truly Republi can form of government. No grunts will be rnado for Internal improvement in any southern stato where the equality of all men before the law is not a living, practical fact. The other arti cles in the December number of the Re view are: "The Discoveries at Olyinpin," by Prof. Ernst Cunius; "Rational Sun day Observance," by the Rev. James Freeman Clarke ; "Southern Statesmen and their Ilicy," by the Hon.

Special effort has been made to glorify the Christmas season, aud 35,000 extra cop ies (making an edition of 103,000 are be ing published to meet the anticipated order from Santa Clans. Tho new dec. oration for the cover will be wintry and spirited. Among tho greatly varied and profusely illuslratsd contents will be an operetta for young people called "The Land of Nod," in whoch six little sleepy, beads visit the marvelous place and see many wonders. The libretto is musical and vivacious verse, and tho music is by Mr. Anthony Relff and Mr. W. F. Sherwln. Mr. Frank R. Stockton will contribute one of bis droll and quaint fairy Uorlca, and Mr. Washington Glad den describes "A Christmas Dinner with the Han in the Moon." A new feature of 8t Nicholas will bo begun. It is a "Treasure-box of Literature," whoso yaluo and purposes are indicated by the first contents, which will bo reprints of Nathaniel Hawthorne's fantasy, "David Swan," and Thackeray's poem, "King Caaut."

How different from ur years ago In 1H70, like 18), wc hud Just cloned a national KHttcal strug gle. Then the daik clouds of trouble and sectional Mrife hung over us threatening the peace of the country. The financial gloom that prevailed has Xk-qti penetrat ed by the 8'iuntshinc of returning pros perity, and to day wc we loinparatiye g'od wiil cvrry where. The jo ef of ine pt ojleti govern themselves has been ted isiiew, and there is more real cause for tetolcinii ovtr the condition of our Couutry iliiin at tiny time in the past, Ewry American can tand up to-dsy and iy lie baa a country be can be truly proud of. At no time since the war, and indwell fur niauy yenrs before tne war, has the pro-jiett for the proper tievelnp. nu'iit of ilia country locked to bright We h:iv- ridden the storm over every dilliculty. Our institutions have been weighed and are not found wanting. The Creator of all una good hu9 honored us as a people above those of any other country on earth. There are millions bound today under the op pressions ot despotism. There are other millions snffering from war, strife and famine. Americans are thankful for a better and firmer national existence to. day thtn ever; for peac and quiet; for prosperity and public cenfidence; for the privileges of tree worship, free speech, free ecbooU, and self-government. In this season of Thanksgiving, no good citizen slioulil withhold tieart-tell ac khnwledgementa to God for all the bless ings showered upon the country. WHY NOT? Why shouldn't Kansas, the banner Republican state, be represented in the president's cabinet? Where is there a more competent man for secretary of the interior than Senator Plumb? He bus lived on the frontier for a quarter of a century, is familiar with all ot the im portant questions that arise in the in' terior department, possesses superior ex ecutive ubllity. and is a gentleman of unquestioned integrity. Junction City UU10H. We do not know whether the mention of Senator Plumb's name in this connec tion will be sanctioned by him or not, but we do know that tbc suggestion of his appointment to the place is received with satisfaction by his friends in this state, and his appointment to tho place would be an honor to Kansas which the Republicans of the state would appre ciate. He possesses tho qualifications which would eminently fit him tor the office. Ho is not a theorist, but a prac tical man and Las a practical knowledge of the wants of the people which a residence of twenty-tour years in Kansas has giveu hint. lie is an able, shrewd and experienced lawyer and business man, is thoroughly versed iu ILc hUtory, traditions and character of the Indians, arid no man would bring to the discharge of the duties of the of. flee a more thorough acquaintance with iU affairs, aud the relation they bear to the public, than Senator Plumb. His executive ability is of the highest order, and his industry aud devotion to the interests of the government would make bin: an able and efficient secretary. It may lie said that Kansas Is not en titled to so much consideration at the hands of the administration. Why not? Did not the Kansas struggle of .15-'50- Ti7 make tho Republican party? Did site not do her full slnire in the preserva tion of the government during the war? It is true her Republican majority is sure and will tic s long as the party re mains true to the interests of the people. but are not Iowa and Massachusetts re liable Republican states? Both now have and long have had cabinet positions. Mirnesota now enjoys tlie honor of a cabinet officer, with the same, congressional representation, and with over 200,000 less population than Kansas. Our state is as much entitled to distinguished recognition in the couueils of the nation as any state in the union. Her people really deserve it by reason of their devotion to the princi pies and interests of the government and tho Republican party. REFORM NEEDED. We are satisfied a reform in the time consilium! in the terms of the various court'!, and in the costs to the public, would bo hailed by all with delight. Wi are aware that llio trial of causes cannot be unduly hurried, but one thing has struck every observer or the slow pro cceding of our courts, and that is that a great deal of time is unnecessarily wasted. We think it is a rule when a cane is called that it is not ready for trial. Jurors mid witnesses are kept waiting day after day, after they have been notified that their presence would be needed. Their expenses, as well ft those of the various counties, are in creased by thousands of dollars every year by what seems inexcusable delays. If lawyers were given to understand that they must bo ready with their cases, aud that nothing but the very liest reasons for postpone ment or delay would be entertained, they would lie ready. We have no ref erence to nny particular court or locali ty in what we say, but call attentiou to the matter because we believe tho evil to be general. W believe the judge who would take the responsibility of reform Ing this matter would receive the unani mous thanks of tho public, and make lor himself a reputation which would be of substantial benefit to him. POST OFFICE MONEY ORDERS The post office department report of the money order system is a grand tribute to the honesty and efficiency of the service, which is all in the hands of Republican officials, from the postmas ter general down. The sale of money orders was commenced by the poetoffice department November 1, 18C4, about six. teen years ago, under a Republican ad ministration. From that date up to July 1st. of the present year, the enor mous number cf 51,217,028 domestic orders, amounting to $S09,625,002.. 58, have liccu purchased by the pub lic. Not one single case of loss, during all this time, has occurred to the purchaser or other owner of a money order except through his own gross carelessness, proven and reported by nn ageut of the department. Even these cases amount to the insignificant sum of $1,219.01 for the whole sixteen yonis, or less than 1-6,000 of 1 per ccit. of the whole amount of the orders pur chased. On the other han-J, the total amount of the losses sustained by the department during the same period has been less than one-fifth of 1 per cent, on Hie amount of orders sold These losses are comprised in the items "bad debts or insolvent sureties," "re mittances lost in the mails" aud "crrone. ous payments." During the single year encded June 30, 1SS0, the last complete year of the money order business, 7,210, 837 domestic orders, amountiug to $100, 352,813.83, have been sold. The losses sustained by the public have amounted to 1 7000 of one per cent, on the amount of the orders purchased, and tlise sustain ed by lbs department to about 1-200 of 1 per cent, of the amount sold. Arrangements have been concluded to take tho census of all the organizations which include as a part of their lailh and practice the non combatant and non-litigant principles. This will Includo a count of the Quakers, Dun tarda, Men nonltes and many minor organizations in the country holding peace views. Tho supervision of the work will be in the bands of Dr. Henry Randall Waite, of New York, and the practical part will be dono by Howard Miller, of Lewis burg, Pennsylvania. Professor Miller was supervisor of census of the Eighth Pennsylvania district, and upon the completion of the difficult and import ant task he has undertaken, T.he numer ical strength and geographical distribu tion ot this excellent class of people will be known. THE PRESS ON SENATOR PLUMB. Senator Plumb mode decidedly the best speech that was made in this city i duriiisr the campaign. In fact be has but lew- equals when it comes uon n to regular old business in a speech.- He tniks like he shot, taking dead aim be fore he pulled the trigger. Wichita tairic. Tho Journal is pleased to note tliat H n. P. B. Plumb, United States senator from Kana,is receiving jast recognition fr. !ii tun press of the state for the active and effective service he rendered the Re publican p!rty during the late canvass His speeches were not only well distrib uted throughout Kansas, where they did greHt good, but he also spoke in Indiana, and we are not certain but he aided the good causa in Ohio also. Senator Plumb at ashington is a credit to his state. aud by oecp intellectual ability coupled w'th strong physical energy aud uidus- try, ;s Dtlil working his way up -in the worti. lhu liepuMican party may well feel proud to own him as one of its fol lowers and the pei. pie are fortunate in having o faithful sntl honorable a man lie lo represent their interests in the lulled States senate: Lucy true Journal. Perhaps no western man deserves more credit for work in the late campaign than Senator P. B. Plumb. Besides do ing effective work on the stump in the slnte. the Senator made a number of speeches in Ohio and Indiana. When at home that is in Kansas be was con btantly on the move, speak ingoften twice the same (lay, and always ready to go where the need seemed greatest. He spent the last daysofthe campaign in the Second congressional district. winch was deemed doubtful. So en grossed was he with the work ot cam paigning that be tailed to register at t.nipona, and, we understand, lost ms vote. But the noble work done in tne canvass will rebound to his credit, and every locality, as here' in Morris county, that sent forth the "Macedonian Cry," has cause to hold Senator Plumb's labors in grateful remembrance. To him is due all the credit of securing the viit of Gen. Stewart L. Woodford to this place; and il would Indeed be diffi cult to cstunatnthe benefit which ac crued to the Republican cause in this county from the speeches of these two distinguished men. Council Grove Re publican. The Miami Republican believes Sena tor Plumb would not accept the position ot secretary ot the interior if tendered to him by the new president: It says -His term in the senate lasts until March 4. and that his re-election to that body is almost absolutely sure there Is now very lew to aispute. lo remain in the senate is to keep up his atlliliations with Kansas and main tain his status as an active, con trolling force ii our politics and local allalrs. If he should drop everything here aud take a department at Washing ton, at the close of the administration he would hive lost the thread of affairs at home, having lieen superceded by other leaders, and would be practically strand ed. No, it i not the thing for Plumb to go away from Kansas, and he is too wise to lo it." It is now thought in well informed cir cles that there will be much trouble in making the next congressional appor tionment under the new census satis factory to all sections, and the feeling is growing that a new apportionment will not be made until the next congress. The trouble aliout the apportionment, it is already apparent, will be as to the bais of representation. The New Eng. land and some of the Middle states, which fall behind, will objecto any dim iuutionof their representation in con gress. liul even il tne present oasi8,one representative in congress for every 131,000 population, be continued, tke New England states will lose four and the middle states six congressmen, while the house will lie swelled to 3G3 mem bers. This indicates one of the reasons why the apportionment may be post poned until the next congress. PENCIL AND SCISSORS. Hanlan proposes to give us a rest Thanks. A new negro exodus from the south is reported to have set in. A heavy snow storm in New York and Pennsylvania Saturday. It is now thought that John Sherman prefers lo go back to the senate. Fifiy-seven is the average age at which the presidents of the United States have taken their seats. Garfield's cabinet is already over- crowded. Garfield himself has not taken a chance at it yet. The New York Herald is trying to drivo John Kelley out of the Democratic party, but Johu won't out. Thurlow Weed is 83 years old and has voted 02 times, but Peter Cooper is the oldest voter in New York. President-elect Garfield's town, where he was born and near where he has al ways lived, (Orange, Ohio,) cast every ba'dot for him. The election for speaker will not take place for a year unless there is an extra session of congress It is not likely an extra session will be called. There are many great political re formers all over this country waiting for both the old parties to "break up" so they can come in at the top as leaders. Bo patient, dear souls ! The Herald says the reformers and plunderers of the treasury of that city exhibit a wondciful unanimity in the opinion that the salaries of the poorest paid public servanls the school teach ers should be reduced. Beaconsfield does not resume novel writing for nothing.

A letter from Grant county, Indiana, informs us that the thermometer marked twelve degrees below zero on the 18ih, and five inches of snow covered, tho ground, and that the people are happy over the result of the election, and get good prices for their grain. Paymaster Nelson, an army officer who for sixteen years bore a high reputa tion for ability and honesty, confesses to the charge of embezzlement and ascribes his fall to speculation. How many more good men must oo ruined Deiore the danger of risking other people's money will lie fully comprehended! Amf.hicv!, Nov. 18, 1S80. Once more the Goddess of Liberty has called upon her sons; ouce more from the dome of heaven 6hc has unfurled our emblem of liberty, and asked the nation to renew its faith in the wisdom of the founders of this grand fabric of a gov ernment; and the result has astonished even the lovers of liberty themselves. Free siieech and a free press, are the safety valves through which the Ameri can ticople can ventilate their ideas of goveriiiontal affairs; but when a sworn enemy to liberty, labor and law, attempts through force or fraud, intimidation or hypocracy, to seize upon this heritage of ours, every lover of mankind will stand forth and bearing the scepter ofh is author ity (the ballot) will say, "peace, be still." A nation that will not earn its bread must fall, and any section, whether north or south, that through false ideas of honor, or pride, refuses to ' produce by honest toil the amount that they consume, must d rop behind, and become an exeressence on the caudle appendage of civlzation; the soath has never been true to herself, she ha trampled beneath the iron feet of slavery the conscience of every man and woman on ber soil ; and whilo they stand where they do to-day., we cannot trust them, not with the most sacred office, not even to convey the fruits of honest toil, to feed the withered lips of famine.
