EMPORIA, FRIDAY, DEC. 31, 1880.
Arkansas liut year produced over $30,. 000,000 worth of cotton. Mrs. Garfield sent a dozen barrel t elder to market the other day. of The New York Ileruld puts it as fol lows: Sherman gets all the doll and Foster finds Uie sawdust. The New York Tribune, alter careful- ly canvassing the rcturoa of the recent election In Mississippi and comparing the Republican vote with the- colored population, comes to the conclusion that there can be no reasonable doubt that if the election bad been as fairly conducted In ail parts of Mississippi as It was in Alcorn and Pontotoc counties the state would have chosen Garfield electors by a majority of over 80,000 and returned a solid Republican delegation to congress. - Ths next meeting of the Arkansas alley editorial association, will be held at Wichita, Saturday, January 8. Thirty-one of the thirty-eight stales in in the Unioa now have biennial legisla tures, and twenty-eight of the state leg islatures meet next month. New York Tribune: Barn um has been amoug the Rocky Mountains fr Ma health. They all looked small to Mm compared with the Chinese letter lie.

Chicago Inter Oceaa: The climate of Colorado is not one suited for an invalid. We have frequently been asked the ques tion, and have seen and rehearsed num btrflena example of the ill effects of Col orado atmosphere upon delicate constitu tions. The atmosphere la very dry and pure and light, bnt It seems to live upon the tissues of the body rather than feed them. An ordinary man will lose from one-fifth to one-eight of bis weight the first seasou in Colorado. All observers declare that a man cannot endure either mental or physical labor as well as in a heavier atmosphere. Don are said to be short lived in Colorado, and other an imals are easily exhausted of their strength. An entirely erroneous opinion has gone abroad about the desirableness of Colorado climate for consumptives, and many of this class hsve too late found ont their mistake. ' Governor Crittenden, of Missouri, pro poses to appoint a lady aa one of the police commissioners of St. Louis, thus changing the insignia of her office from broomstick to a mace. The proposed plan of making life sen ton of ex-presidents Is recognized by astute politicians as an Insidious scheme for giving Ohio an undue representation in the national legislature. The fact that Springer and Bparks are both from Illinois will do much to es tablish the reputation of tbut prolific commonwealth aa the greatest mule growing state in the Union. The Kansas legislature will meet next Tuesday week. Jlmmie Miles, of Pike townshlp,has kindly consented to occupy iht quarters which the FusionUts of the 83d district had chartered for C. V. Kak ridge. ' About the only thing that will do to count on in speculating on the plans of General Garfield is that In making up his cabinet be will not be likely to smooth Senator Cookliog's fur against the grain. Two new electric light companies have recently filed articles of Incorpora tion at Albany, New York. This -would seem to Indicate that Edison's invention may yet prove aomethlng more than an advertisement. The lion. A. K. McClure, of Philadel phia, a Democrat, the editor of a Demo, cratic paper, and a man gifted with the ttlenls of politicians, is now on a tour ot observation through the south. lie has written very readable letters to bis paper, based upon the knowledge he has gained, lie entered the section heralded by a very loud trumpet; all the high-toned southern gentlemen at the places he haa visited have Joined la entertaining him. He haa drank their wlnea, eateu their terrapin, smoked their cigars, but has not forgotten to tell the truth about the southern situation. He has denounced the frauds at the recent election, has given it his Judgment that "The Fool'a Errand" la "a faithful pre sentallon" of political affairs at the south, and haa ottered other opinions thst give great offense to the southern editor, whn denounces him as a "section allst," as having "violated hospitality," etc. The Atlanta Constitution says: "We expected much better things of Mr. McClure." probably be more pained than surprised to learn that that ardent suitor of ior tune hss been recently fined forty dol lars and costs for running a gambling bouse at Galena. . The present fngid weather la probably not so much due toVeonorna to the exurberance of John Sherman over the radiance of bis senatorial prospects in Ohio. Cape Cod has an inhabitant who has never been a mile away from the sound of the ocean. That man will never, un der tha administration of an Ohio Presi dent, have a chance to be secretary of the nary. As the recovery of Sunset Cox is con ditioned upon absolute quiet and total abstinence from all conversation, it will not strike the public as heartless that his wife hsa been seen pricing the latest styles of mourning bonnets. If Sarah Bernhardt has any concep tion ot the benefits of advertising, and if she is not wholly destitute of common gratitude, she will instruct her manager to ahell ont handsomely on complimen tary tickets to-the clergy of the different cities to which her encasements call her. Tho public is somewhat anxious to know when Bob lneersoll receives his annual slippers and other conven tional articles of holiday manufacture. A man who so defiantly repudiates the plan of the atonement would scarcely have the cheek to bang up his stocking on Christmas eve. Bjornatjerne Bjornson, the great Nor wegian poet and statesman, haa arrived in Cliicao ' and ia being handsomely feted by the cultured citizens of the Prairie City. Persons who have enjoyed the honor of a presentation to the dis tinguished foreigner take pride in pro claiming the fact by carrying their Jaws around in slings. A second adventist down In Green wood county Is not quite clear in his prophetic soul, whether the final crash will come in May or August of the year 1881. The farmers of Ksnsas who con template putting in cropa of spring whest would regard it in the light of a personal favor If be could settle this momentous question before seeding time. - THE NEWS.

The newa of the death of George Eliot (Mrs. Cross) will be received with regret throughout the English-speaking world. Since Thackeray, Bulwer and Dickens, ahe was the greatest living novelist The history of her own heart and-almost her own life, was written in "Middlemarch." There are in her books many thinga not unworthy the greatest masters of the mys teries of life even of Shakspeare. Her name was Marian Evans, and it was the only name to which she had a legal right, until ahe married Mr. Cross, a man nearly twenty years younger than herself. This marriage caused a great deal of gossip, which was the levenire the dull world owed her for her genius. She lived with Mr. George Henry Lewes, whose lawful wife could not be divorced, owing to the fact that her husband had once forgiven her for an elopement. Mr. Lewes had not been dead long when "George EU lot" married the gentleman upon whose advice ahe was thrown In business mat ters. The age of the distinguished lady was, we believe, sixty-one. Her first book waa "Scenes in Clerical Life." Her "Adam Bede," which started her fame, was published In 1859. "The Mill on the Floss" appeared in 180 ; "Rome la." 1863; "Felix Holt," 18C6; "Middle march," 1871.

Well, who said it wast The financial record of the Dem ocratic party Is evidence enough on the point It is rumored that when Buck Mr heard of Cox's remark, he swelled ap fiercely and askod If Cox Intended to make a personal attack upon him. St. Louis Globe-Democrat: Kansas baa been rather a sensational state from Its beginning, and has never hesitated to have its own way in its own affairs. When a territory it waa famous for con verting pro-slvavery governors to frce soilism, and It became a state by lock ing horns with the national government and setting the Democratic party by the ears. There was a time when the voting in Kansas was chiefly performed by cit izens of Missouri and the states farther south, and heavy Democratic majorities were recorded in counties whose virgin soil was innocent of population. But in the struggle for existence Kansas won, and lost no time in getting even with her neighbor over the border. When the war broke out her citizens were eager to repay their Missouri friends for services previously rendered, and harried their lands and despoiled them of the store until the account seemed to be squared. As a territory the climate of Kansas was so admirably adapted to the comfort of the colored race that the slave states com biocd to force negro slavery Into It; but aa a state its meteorological conditions are ao fatal to negro life that the same stales are doing their utmost to prevent negroes from going there. No other such sudden and complete change is on record; but, true to her history, Kansas is gathering in the colored man notwith standing. Her lant move was the insert ing iu her constitution of a prohibition of the manufacture and sale of whisky within her borders. In defianco of all experience, she assumes that man can subdue nature without whisky, and promptly acts on the assumption. It ia an Interesting experiment under the cir cumstances, but no new state except Kansas would have thought of risking a trial of it. While the New York Herald asserts that Hancock's letter of acceptance waa revised by Tilden and his letter on south ern claims waa written by "an able yoang political leader," a friend of the sage of Gramercy Park, we have yet to see any question raised as to the or tgnallty of the superb candidate's writ ten sentiments on the tariffc question. There is a strong and growing senti ment in Congress in tavor of the repeal cf taxes upon capital and deposits of nation al banks and upon bank checks. The Income from these sources is now $9,500, 000 annually. Commissioner Rauin fav ors remitting all internal revenue taxes except those on whfcky, beer, tobacco, cigars and the special liscense taxes. This would reduce the income of the government $43,000,000 annually. General Ualderman, tho United Stales Consul to Siam, haa refused Consular protection to retail dealers In native liquors. Ilia amended form of servants' certificates is not likely to be abused, as in the past, inasmuch as it Is expressly stipulated that spirits and opium shall not be sold by any one holding such cer tificate. If all the foreign consuls would treat thia question in this way. It is thought that the Siamese government might be able to control this nefarious traffic and render it comparatively harm leas to the morals, health, industry aud wealth of the masses. Under soch cir samatancee the government might be leaa anxious for new treaties with the western powers. The De Lessens Panama sea level, nbtarreanean eaaal shares are to be mir aculously profitable.

He says : , Sara Bernhardt, ling a woman, the pulpit has opcued a fusiladeupon her as one whose private life haa not been irre proachable. This is the way of the world. There will come along an opera tenor, a notorious rake, and fashionable society will rave over him, and the pul pit will be dumb. And yet the precise nature of Sara Bernhardt' offense is not known, ami It appears to have been mag nified by report until it has be come apocryhal. - The amount of the testimony seems ' to be the exist ence of a son, whom she tenderly cares for, and who is said to be the fruit of some unfortunate connection in her youth, and thia is all the witness against her life. What the relation was nobody knows, but her acknowledgement of the son Is on Its face evidence that it was not disgraceful. It is now staled that the great Sara declares her resolve to defend herself by suits tor libel against preach ers and journal who defame her. But whatever be the realities of the matter, the making of a woman the object of this first crusade of the pulpit in the character of tho theater artists is too much in the custom of making the wom an an outcast while her destroyer is wel cornea in society.

See advertisement, Congress aud the Railroads Washington, D. C, Dec. 27. In an interview with Judge Reagan, chairman of the bouse committee of commerce, he says he believes he will be able to en gineer the interstate commerce bill through during the present session. He think there is no question of the rights of congress in the matter. The power of congress over railroads charter ed by the states is that derived from clause three, section eight, article one, of the constitution, as interpreted by the supreme court in numerous decisions. Many questions arise in relation to these roods a to their corporate rights, fran. chises, and the management of the cor- porations.whicucan only ueaeait wun ty States creating the corporations. Take for example the watering of stock of such roads, which generally results in imposing greater burdens on tue snip pers. This would have to be dealt with by the states, and is not within the pow er of congress, there are many such questions. There are now three bills pending on tnis suujeci. ine rteagan bill has lor lis ouject me aBriugement oi the powers of railroads, and the protec tion of the people from freight discrim inations. "It does not mieriere wun llie management of railroad corporations," says Mr. Reagan. "Its provisions are few, simple ana easily understood, n is propesed by this bill: 1. To prohibit all discrimination between shippers in freight rales and charges. 2. To prohibit rebates in drawbacks tn all cases. 3 To prevent in all cases the pooling of freights by otherwise com peting railroads, so as to secure to , the public the benefits of competition: 4. To limit the power of discrimination as between different places by providing that no more shall be charged for a car load of freight tor a shorter than tor a longer distance on the same haul. 5. It provides that schedules of freight rates and charges shall be conspicuously post ed up and that no more nor less shall be charged than specified in the printed schedule. Railroads now profess to post up such schedules, and it is proposed by this bill' to limit them to their published rates oi cuarges. Alter making these provisions the Din provides ample means for their enforce ment by giving the remedy in civil dam ages to the shipper for any wrong done him in violation of the provisions of the bill who on recovering a judgment is allowed triple damages, with a provi sion that the damages shall in no case Ire lor a less sum than $500. This is de signed to prevent the wearing out of poor litigants oy me aeiays or taw. Next, the bill provides for a qui tarn action to be prosecuted by the public officers, in which upon the conviction the penalty is not to beless than $1,000, one-half of which is allowed to go to the informer. Then theotneers and managers of such corporations are subject to in dictment for doing anything pro hibited to be done by the bill, or for refusing to do anything commanded by the act, and on convic tion they are subject to a penalty of not less than $1,000. In order to enforce the civil remedies, aud prevent the conceal ment of facts or evasion of the law, it is provided that the parties to such suits may be compelled to testify, with the reservation that certain testimony shall not be used against them on criminal grounds, and equitable as well as legal power are given to tbe courts trying such cases, with the power to compel the production of books and papers. These provisions are essential to the en forcement ot any legislation on this sub ject. The wisest provision of the law upon this subject would be useless, un less the law compels the opening of the mouths of the officers and managers, and authorizes the examination of books and papers of these corporations-" The Spragne-ConUing Scandal -Washington, D. C, Dec. 2d. The an ticipated Sprague-Conkling scandal, which is believed to be impending upon the family difficulties of Gov. Sprague, excites much interest here, where all the parlies and some of tbe circumstances are so intimately known. Much of the friendly relations between the New York senator and Mrs. Sprague has long been the property of Washington gossip. Now that the male Sprague has indicated an intention of making a case against his wife, for the avowed purpose of ruining Mr. Conkling, the whole subject is freshly revived. The recent difficulty with senator liayarU ana the rumored political alliance of Hayes and Garfield against Conkling, have contributed to bring the latter into more than usual prominence. ' It is not believed any case made by Governor Sprague will affect Conkling' social standing or political innuence, even among tuoe wno person ally dislike him. There is an indistinct idea, however, that Sprague will carry the matter to extremes. In support of this comes the intelligence that he has been tracking his wife and Conkling with detectives in other cities, and the additional fact that two well known de tectives of this city are now believed to be engaged in nxing the relations be tween the Senator and Mrs. Sprague here. There are many rumors in this connection too indefinite for publication. Certain it seems to be that the founda tion of all the newspaper gossip at the capital ia being privately investigated. presumably in iurtnerance ot the Rhode Island ex Senator's reported intention. This revival of the scandal is much commented upon and deprecated. A AVashington detective says all the evidence that sprague wants from this point cau be easily furnished. Whether or not they were at work upon the case he refused, of course, to say. To illustrate the public sensitiveness on the subject of Conkling, the effect of a rumored personal conflict between two senators last night may be mentioned. It waa reported at an early hour this morning that two prominent senators had met bv accident and assaulted each other, one knocking the other down with a heavy cane. Although it was after 1 o'clock in the morning when the story got out, it spread like the yellow fever. The representatives of prominent western papera scoured - the city, banging the doors of everybody who might possibly have known something about it in the at tempt to hunt the item down. Suspicion at once attached to Mr. Conkling, with whose name was linked that of the Dela ware senator and several others with whom the former is at outs. For fear of being beaten, some of these anterprising journalists sent an account of the affair to their papers. To-day the rumor re, solves itself into a bit of pleasantry on the part of a brother scribe, Tbe friend of Mr. Conkling state that he will take no further notice of Mr. Bayard in the Phelps. Dodge & Co. moiety case. They say if Mr. Bayard can let the matter rest where it is, Mr. Conklin can. If the former should afford the opportunity on the floor of the senate, Mr. Conkling will most crtainly reply.' Boreas en a Bender. New Yore, Dec 27. A steady north eastly gale, accompanied by anow and sleet, set in at an early hour this morn ing and still continue. At Sandy Hook thia evening the wind i blowing 68 mile an hour, and disasters to shipping are apprehended. Baltimore, Dec. 27. The heaviest snow storm of the winter occurred to day. After a rain storm of nearly all night- snow began to f:i!I about 3 o'clock this morning, and continued until 11 o'clock in the forenoon. Snow fell to the depth of a foot, the heaviest fall for three years. . Boston, Dec 27. A heavy easterly g-ole with light snow prevailed all day along the coast, and continue qnabated. At Thatcher's Island the velocity of the wind is 84 miles. As yet -there are no reports of wrecks or damage to the ship ping received. Frrdebicesbcro, Va ,Dec 27. A s-s-vere northeast storm of bail and snow has raged since early last evening. The southern fast mail passed two hours late. and other trains are considerably de tained.

The country roads are badly "blockaded by snow and ice and communication is very dimcuit in an airectione. lue early winter has not been cuaracier izedby such severe weather for many years New Yore, Dec. 27. A storm on the New Jersey coast has raged for 72 hours. The summer residences at Monmouth beach are damaged to the amount of thousands of dollar. The roads about long Branch are blockaded with anow, some drifts are ten feet deep. The bluff bulkherda and porticoes of the hotels are earried away. At Coney Island, the sea swept away the plaza of the Orienlial hotel, and car ried off about two hundred feet of the bulkhead at the Manhattan Beach hotel. The iron pier remains intact, but some of the outlying balb houses were smash ed into kindling wood. T.kwk Del Dec. 27. A northeaster ly of-t in liprft vesterdaveveninirand still continues. The wind changed this morning to northwest, and increased in violence. The bark W. T. Harwood, here for orders, is upon the beach above tbe railroad pier, and the little side wheel steamer Wanderer, from New York, bound south, has gone to pieces near the iron pier. The crews of the bark are safe. But few vessels in the harbor, and no further disasters has been heard of. This is the severest gale since the one in 1877, at which time so many vessel foundered- in the harbor. The eale has been accompanied by heavy rain until 3 o'clock this after noon, when it changed to a blinding enow storm, which still continues, tbe wind changing to the northeast. Washington Wirings -Washington, Dec. 25. A bill will be introduced in the bouse, on the first bill day after recess, to cover the deficiency In the appropriation for -deputy mar shals. At present the amount does not exceed $500,000. Probably tbe Demo crats will not offer serious opposition to its passage, because they are studiously trying to avoid an extra session, and re alize that their failure to make provis ions for paying the compensation law fully due tiie federal election marshals will bring about what they do not desire. The Christmas just closed has been tbe happiest known in the national cap ital for years. The satisfaction over the election of Garfield and the consequent certainty that a large proportion of the present force of clerks will be retained has led to a general and most thorough enjoyment of tbe day. The Camerons have at last discovered themselves In the Pennsylvania sena torial contest and are found to be work ing in favor of H. W. Oliver, of Pitts burg. He starts with the strength here tofore divided between Gov. Morebead and Representative Boyne. The fact that the Camerons are in this movement will weaken him greatly in some other por tions ot the state, t he contest is now narrowing itself to Grow and Oliver, but at present the chances seem to be in favor of the former. The best ele ments of the party are supporting him. . All information from Indiana indi cates a choice of Gen. Ben Harrison for the senate. His superior fitness over most of the candidates on the list is said to be fully recognized among the mem bers elect to the legislature, and his friends write here that a majority of each branch are already pledged to vote for him. A New York sensational paper pub lishes what purports to give the points oftheanswer which Gov. Sprague will miike to tbe bill for divorce tiled by his wife. The statement is to the effect that she has been the victim of Senator Conk ling, and the charges against the latter will be of Buch a specific character as to fill the country again with a great scan dal. It is understood that the president has determined to appoint Daniel A. Pardee, of New Orleans, to the United States district judgeship, made vacant by the promotion of Judge Woods to the United States supaeme court bench. Mr. Pur dee is a native of Ohio.

The constitution of the state of Kansas limits the house of representatives to 125 members, but -the growth of the state has been such, and the number of counties has so increased, that members in excess of 125 have been admitted to seats for several years past where satisfactory proof was given that the extra' members from new dis tricts received as high 250 votes. In 1677 the case of Hon. T. Touilinson, claiming to represent the one hundred and twenty s-jventh district in Rush coun ty, was carried to the supreme court to test the legality of this increase above max imum allowed by the constitution. The court decided the house has jurisdiction to determine the question of its own membership, and not the courts, but in timated that an act passed, by a vote of its members In excess of the constitu tional limit would present a question which might be properly investigated if brought before the court in proper form. This year there were 137 mem bers elected.being twelve in excess of the limit, and tue question has again been raised as to the rights of the twelve to hold seats. Upon examining the records of the last house the attorney general has discovered that a bill making an appro priation to Hon. D. B. Long, state fish commissioner, passed by the aid of the votes of four members holding seats as representatives from districts in ex cess of 125, and that without these votes the bill would hnve failed. The fish commissioner has drawn all of the ap propriation but $340.19, and the attorney general has enjoined the state treasurer from paying tbe balance on the ground above stated. The proceedings were brought before Judge Merton, of this city, and will be carried to the supreme court and fully decided prior to the meeting of the legislature, being regard ed as a case of great importance. It the supreme court sustains the injunction, it will not prevent the legislature from admitting the excess of members, but they will not be entitled to vote on tbe final passage of bills. The governor has employed Peck aud Johnson, of Topeka, to defend the suit, and tbe merit of the ease will be fully determined. Death of Dr. Chapin. New Yoke. Dec. 27. The Even ing Post says Rev.

He received his academic education in Bennington Seminary and then returned to this slate beginning to study far tbe law in a lawyer's office in Troy. Without com pleting his legal studies he soon returned to V'tica, where he became assistant edi tor of tbe Mazarine and Advocato, then the leading journal of the Universalist denomination. In 1837, when twenty-three years of age, he was ordained In Utica to the Universalist ministry. He immediately began preaching and accepted a call to become pastor of the Independent Chris tian church of Richmond, Va., a society composed of both Universaiists and Unitarians. In 1840 he accepted tho charge of the Universalist church in Charleston, Massachusetts. Six years later he accepted a call from the School Street Universalist church, Boston,- be coming the colleague of Hosea Ballou.

Wealth for Grant Philadelphia," Dec. 28. The sub scriptions to the fund of $100,000 to be raised by Philadelphians for Gen. Grunt are all in, and the transmission of the check awaits the word from the ex-presi-dent that be is ready to receive It. This is entirely a private affair, said a gentle man to-day, whose name for a large amount is amon g tbe subscribers. The names of the gentlemen who have con tributed the money will never be announced They are prompted by no other motive than that of admiration and friendanip of the general. No man in the country has a greater personal following thau he has, and there is not one among those who have subscribed for this $100,000 who would.under any consideration whatever, accept any public office. One gentle man who is a tirm friend of the general sent his name with $25,000, with a letter stating that if it was necessary he would give his own check for $100,000, or that he would be willing to pay a life annui ty to the ex president of $25,000.

He says he has not seen the reDorts heretofore published regard ing the work of the commission, and de clines to either affirm or deny them. Porter's Plans- Indianapolis, Dec. 25. Hon. Albert G.
