FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1881. -. 1 VOL. 24 NO. 18. 11 W sr y i Entered at the poet office at Emporia a kuvuu viae nuuicr. President Garfield is said to be great admirer of bane ball. It is a mercy for the country that this damaging fact did not leak out during Ihe asperities of the late' national canvas. The New York Tribune inquire whether it isn't time for another inter view with ex -Got. Seymour giving some more direction about what the Demo cratic part must do to be aaved. The debate in the senate is becoming. depressing! r lame. Won't Ihe Hon. Daniel Webster Vorbeca take compassion upon a languishing public and turn loose his aggressive yawpjopon the na tional banks? The selection by President Garfield of General James to preside over the port folio of the postofilec department .was a mighty good thing for the country, but it is turned out to b tremendously tough on Brady. The stellar system of postal routes is to bo telescopically examined by the new postmaster general. In polishing up the instrument for a good view, Brady was brushed oil-. It is lo the con stant credit of the Republican party It doesn't hesitate to investigate Itself. William II. Berry, agent for the Un compahgre Utes at Los Pinos, denies explicitly the report that there is reason to fear an Indian uprising in tho near future. IIosays that the Uncompahgres are shinned with the recent action of the Interior Department, and have no thought of going 4a the war-path, and that without their suppoit other neigh boring tribes would never plan an out break. . The Kansas City papers have Joined in a clamorous demand for the running of street cars until midnight. At pres ent they do not make any trips later than half past 0 or 10 o'clock and the number of men who stay out beyond that hour is increasing so rapidly, and as a gener al rule their homes are so remote from the bibulous centers of the town, that the shutter has become practically ob solete as a means of transportation. Some curious newspapers, whose mo tires are past finding out, persist in representing that Secretary Blaine has Brigbt's disease, and is too ill to attend to his official duties. The truth is that Mr. Blaine has not been absent from his department a single day for the past six weeks, nor absent from Washington an hour since he was appointed to tho state department. He is on the street daily, and appears to be in his usual health. It is stated in Washington that Simon Cameron'a proposition that the nomin ation of Robertson be withdrawn in the interest of harmony received a most em phatic negative from President Garfield, who said to the venerable negotiator, what he bad previously said to others who had undertaken a similar mission, that this nomination was the result of careful consideration and due delibera tion, aud would cot be withdrawn. So the senior Cameron's errand was a com plete failure, as it deserved to be. Chicago Tribune: If Mr. Postmaster General James shall discover that Ihe service of his department wants reform ing, or that the public loterett requires investigation and prosecution of abuses, the country will applaud him all the more cordially if he aball relieve Ihe Republican party of any officious and noisy members who may have been us ing their so-called Republicanism as a mere cloak under which to accomplixh Jols and improper practices upon the national treasury. Let him not bo afraid of hurting the Republican party by rooting out abuses and restoring honesty to the public service. Mr. Grier, of Pennsylvania, who at tracted attention in the Chicago couven tiou by voting first, last and all the time for Garfield, is reported to have returned home from Washington, "disgusted" because the president offered him the position of third assistant, instead of aencond assistant postmaster general. Tli salary of all three assistants is 3, 500 each, but the dignity la a considera tion.' Mr. Grier, however, is reported to be almost atono deaf, and was not there fore physically qualified for the higher place if indeed for any. Among tho old senators the fullest, roundeit, and dtepett "ayes" and the most deliberately emphatic "nor" come from Conkllng and Logan. Hampton's "no" has in it a quick. Impatient dtcld ednesa. Hill's on the contrary, is quick and ' unconcerned. Hoar occ isionslly puts in his "no" with a rising Inflection. Plumb shortens his as though he were busy and didn't want aay one to bother him. Ingalls files his negative with peremptory suddenness. Davis, of Illi nois, speaks ' in a tone so low that the people In th gallery always receive the impressloa that he: did not vote at all. Cameron, of Pennsylvania, speaks low. but with such Imperious briskness that everybody bears him. ,' Of the new sena tors, Frye's "no" Is most like that of Hampton, and Conger's moat like that of Cameron. Sawyer respond bluntly, with a square toed, downward Inflection, and Hale. Harrison. Hawley, and the other new comers quickly. MORE ABOUT THE BOND FEE. The 4000 fee paid by the county com missioners at their April session to County Attorney Sedgwick for the re covery of the narrow gauge bonds, still remains the absorbing topic of local interest, and so far aa we have been able to learn there haa been no revolution in public ' sentiment in relation to this matter. Tbk News, in it daily and weekly issue of the 21st expressed the opinion that the fee was larger than the nature of the case Justified, and it haa had no reason to modify its position in this regard. In our former article bear- log upon this question we gave the commissioners and county attorney the benefit of their presentation of the matter, belug prompted by a desire to do Justice to all parties concerned, and thus allow the people to arrive at their own conclusions, . uninfluenced by anything save a plain statement, in general terms, of both sides of the case. The verdict eems to be very generally adverse to the contract between the commissioners and Mr. Sedgwick, the conviction prevailing that the conditions for tho surrender of the narrow gauge bonds by Donnell, Lawson A Co., with whom they were placed In escrow to the railroad com pany were so plainly violated that there could be no question as to the recovery of the bond by the county. In view of the interest which centers upon this feature of the case, we submit to our readers the following contract, signed by Donnell Lawson & Co wherein the conditions for the delivery of the narrow gauge bonds to the Kansas City, Emporia Southern railroad company, and inbstaa- tially those upon which they were voted. are plainly set forth: That they will safely keep said bond and taid stock, and deliver the same to said railroad company. Its successors and assigns, upon the following conditions only: Whxrxas, The said railroad compa ny, Ita successors or assigns, shall pre sent to the said Donnell, Lawson A, Co. a certificate of the said board of county commissioners of the said Lyon county, showing that the said railroad company haa permanently located its shops and general offices at Emporia, and nas entered into a sufficient agree ment with aaid board of county commis sioners lortne permanent continuance and main lain ance of aaid shops and of fices at Emporia, and that it has entered into a sufficient agreement with.' aaid board of county commissioners to com plete and equip said road to the eartline of Lyon county within two years from the time of commencing work upon said road, and to Kansas City, Mo., within three years from said time, and to es tablish and maintain a depot and side track within one-fourth of a mile of the townsiu of Neosho Rapids, in said coun ty, and has also made a sufficient guar antee, approved by said board of county commissioners, securing to said county of Lyon and the citirens thereof a re daction in the price of fare charged for the transportation of freight and passen gers to and from Kansas City, Mo, and all point along the line of said road in Lyon county, Kansas, at least 25 per cent, below the rates shown by Ihe gen eral tariff freight list issued by the A., T. & S. P. railroad company on August 31st, 1875, and also that the track of aaid railroad company has been laid and trains running thereon from the city of Em poria to the point where the line of said road crosses the south or west Una qf said county of Lyon. --it) That then and in such case and upon such certificate ihe said firm of Donnell, Lawson & Co. shall deliver to aaid rail road company, its successors and assigns, an amount ot said bonds and aiwic nqimi to $4,000 per mile of the road so con structed in said county, and then aaid railroad company,-its"succeasors or as signs, shall present to said DoanelLLaw- soa & Co. a certificate of aaid board of county commissioners showing the rail road of aaid company haa been complet ed from Emporia to the east line of said county by way of the town of Neosho Rapids, and within one-tourth of a vile of aaid town, with a depot and side track located within the same distance of eaid town, and that all the conditions ea. corning said shops and offices have been complied with, that then and in such case the said firm of Donnell, Lawson & Co. shall deliver taid bonds and aaid stock that shall then remain in 'their bands to the said railroad company, it? successors and assigns. , Protided, however,' that if the said railroad company, its successors and as signs shall fully do and perform all thine br it to be done and performed in order to entitle it to the delivery of said bonds and stock, or any portion thereof, as shown by the proposition voted upon at said special election as aforesaid, and that in such case or cases the said board of county commissioners shall wilfully and without cause refuse to issue and deliver to aaid railroad company, its successors and assigns the certificate or either of them above men tioned, that then and in such case or cases upon the decision of any court of competent jurisdiction wherein the said Doara or county commtsioners snail navr been maae a party ana snail nave naa sufficient notice of said action lo hav defended the same, that the said railroad company, its successors and assigns are entitled to said bonds and stoek or any portion thereof, under the terms and conditions of said proposition, and that saia ooara or county commissioners wil fully and without cause refuse to deliv er said certificate or certificates, that then the said Donnell, Lawson St Co. shall de liver to said railroad company, its suc cessors or assigns, such portion of said bonds and stock as said court may de cide it or they to be entitled to. DONXKLL, LAWSON efc UO., Fiscal agents for the state of Kansas. As the railroad company in whose be half the bonds were voted violated all the conditions for their delivery, as set forth in the contract between the com. mlssioner and Donnell, Lavsoa Co., and as none of the terms upon which aid was extended to the road had been ful fil led, it becomes a question " how any protracted or expensive litigation could grow out or bo plain an agreement The law's delay and the devices of crafty urists versed in legal quibbles, hare. not uufrequently - been successfully em ployed to defeat the ends of Justice, but in the case in question we fail -to see the possibility - of.' any . such contingency. It Is. true that, history records not a few instances where counties have ..been mulcted for bonds issued under very similar condi tions, and the fact must not be over- looked that the tax-payers ! of Lyon county are In better shape to criticize the action of the officials associated with this transaction, now that the narrow gauge bonds have been converted to asLea, than they were before they were recovered. The public, we believe, will not be charry in awarding just credit to the commissioners and Mr. Sedgwick for their efforts in the direction of removing all cause of misgiving regarding the outcome of an isue in which the lax- payers of the county were so vitally in terested, snd they desire to see the county attorney fairly remunerated for his services in this behalf. As we stated in our first article on this question, we are not in sympathy with the suspicion entertained in some quarters, that any of the parties to the transaction hare act ed in bad faith. But it would be utter ly absurd to deny that there has been an exercise of mistaken judgment In this matter which merits the gravest crlti cism of all who are interested in a ' Judi cious and economical expenditure of the public fuuds. , PARTY POLICY. An article under the above bead, from the pen of Carl Schurz, editor of the Westliche Post, which haa been translat ed from the German and reproduced ia a number of leading Republican journ als, Is exciting much comment. It treats mainly of the deadlock in the senate and the results contemplated by the Re publicans in prolonging the existing contest between the two great political organizations represented in that body resulting from the coalition with Ma hone. Mr. Schurz earnestly desires that he shall not be understood as under-esti mating the vital importance to the best interests of the country of a disin. tegration of the solid south. The question, as he views it, is not whejher this end is to be accomplished, but whether the explosion is to be brought about in such a manner as to further the cause of good princi ples of government, and therewith the cause of the Republican party in the best sense of the word, or by the em ployment of means that might advance dangerous tendencies and drag the party into odious connections that would com promise ita strength and impair its claim to public confidence. The article notes the evidences ot dis integration in the south which manifest ed themselves at the last national elec tion, In which the Republicans gained many congressional districts and in sev eral instances came very near carrying the state ticket. These successes, in the opinion of Mr. Scaurs, should have been followed no by strong principled agitation, which would have strengthened the Independ ent movement in the south, and thereby furthered the prospects of a wholesome political revolution in that section. Mr. Schurz, in our view, is strongly fortified in the position that the strength of the Republican party lies with its principle. aad that its perpetuity la based oa the confidence of the people in Us fidelity to the high aims of its organization, and not upon its facility for coin pausing the ends of political expediency by. means of questionable alliances. In concluding his article Mr. Schurz says: The Republican, more' than any other party, depends for the maintenance of organization upon public opinion. We know well enough that a great part of the organization consists, so to say. of regular troops, that follow the word of command and go with the party through thick and thin, but another and very re spectable part of the party consists of volunteers, on whom you can calculate only when the position and objects of tne party please tnem. Ana tuese vol unteers are altogether necessary to make out a majority. That conscience which is independent of party discipline plays great ws mine itepcoiican party. This may be a rery uncomfortable doc trine for certain party leaders, but it is a good thing for the country and the party itself. This judgment of the conscience demands an honorable, straight-forward and clear policy. .

We are of quite a dif ferent opinion. If the Republican party snould adopt the 'war methods of the devil it will soqq .-he- et'aaend. In a fire flgtokae det-U srljl get mhedf it.

You can subdue the devil only with holy water, f That he eaono stand. , In other words, the Republican' party can C ale it- fine public confidence in its reliability bjF laiiniuiry ansMHaiainjr. irae principles or government, and thereby deserving suc cess. This may sound homely ana old fashioned, but it is true, and it is good that it is true. We speak from the expe rience of many election contests, and the clearer the Republican party keeps. In mind such experieacee the better it will be for the country and for the people. BBBB AND THEBK. .

In accord ance with the orders issued lust night, four companies of the police reserve regi ment, tol. iiutler commanding, repaired to the Four Courts building, in which are the police heaaoaarters, and are no stationed there in readiness for an emer gency. A company of light cavalry un der Lieutenant Holliday, and Winter's battery of four guns, belonging to the National Guard, were also there, sub ject to a moment's call. tiov. Crittenden arnvea early tins morning and is now in consultation with the Police Commissioners. The entire police force of the city is on duty, also tbe special men called into service by the Commissioners. Four men of the regular force are stationed at each cor ner on Olive street from Twelfth street down to Fourth street the eastern termi nus of the Olive street rood, and a like disposition of men has been made on Washington avenue, mere are also squads of mounted police patrolling both streets. At me siaDies oi tnese companies, in the western part of the city, there is also a large force stationed. The morning opened cloudy, and from about 8 to 8 :30 o'clock a brisk shower fell, but at this writing the sky has clear ed and the son shines warmly. There are no unusual crowds on the streets yet, and one would not think from the gener al appearance of things tbat a riot and perhaps blood shed is in anticipation. i ne cars will start ironi tue siaoies in the western part of the city at 9:30, and will reach Fourth street, if not molested, at about 10 o'clock. John Ford, president of the Trades' assembly, publishes a card this forenoon, denying the charge that the trades' unions of the city have been managing the strike of car conductors and drivers. Maurice Guther, president of the St. Louis typographical union, is also out with a card denying that John J. Hogan, who has been very active in the interest of the strikers, is an officer of that un ion, us has been published. By half past V o'clock consiueraoie ol a crowd had collected on Olive street, between Fifth and Sixth, but the police kept it moving so constantly that it could not concentrate or obstruct any particu lar spot. All were served alike, the bus iness men who stopped to- look out of curiosity, the rough tellow who might, under lavoraoie circumstances, cre ate - trouble, and the street gamin were hustled along promiscuously and not permitted to loiter a minute. At 0 .50 the first car appeared at the top of the ascent at Sixth street and wns hailed with a slight cheer. It contained twelve persons, three of whom wore its drivers and conductor and Holla Wells, the su perintendent ol tbe roud was on the front platform. A squad ot nneen mountea ponce rode close behind ' It passed rapidly to the turn table at the corner of Fourth street, swung around end proceeded im mediately on its return trip. A number of other cars followed In rapid succes sion. About this time the crowd grew rapidly larger, hundreds Hocking from cross adjacent streets to see what was going on, but the police were full v equal to the emergeucy. Capt. Kennett, who was in charge at this point, iormea nis men in double Hue courtly across tiie street, and matching them up and clow n for two blocks, soon baa the space clear. The crowd generally toofc this treat ment good naturedly, aud after seeing the authorities were in real earnest. quietly dispersed, and by eleven o'clock the street naa re&umeu lis ubuut appear ance, except that the police remained to prevent any luruier gathering oi tue people. No violent demonstration was made, and a very slight disposition to be unrully cropped out; a lew epithets were launchca ai ine new conductors and drivers, but this was all. About the same scene as the above oc curred on Washington avenue. The start on this line was not quite so early as on Olive street, but when the cars did begin to move they followed each other rapidly and without molestation. The police carried out the same plan here as on Olive street, and the crowd soon grew tired of being forced to keep moving and quietly dispersed. The strike is ended, and from the way things loos all tbe roads win be running to morrow. . The troops at the Four Courts were not needed and the first regiment nation al guards remained buietly in their armory corner of Washington avenue and Fourth street, and viewed the oper ations or the ponce troni their windows. The police proved that they were fully able ,to cope with the crowds, and had there been ever so riotous a disposition manifested they could have ' easily quelled it. They behaved admirably and deserve credit for discipline and efficiency. , Merited Censure St. Loi'is, April 27. The Globe-Dem ocrat which has heretofore been on the side of tho striking street conductors, expressed itself editorially this morning as follows: "The hope expressed yesterday for an honorable and peaceable settlement of the street car troubles, has been, we re- eret to say. disappointed. Mr. Wells yesterday conceded substantially all that had been asked ot Mm, but his oner was rejected. The truth is, that the ob ject of the s'.rike has been perverted. UriKinally aa honest ettort to secure a reduction of the hours of labor, it be came, yesterday, an impudent demand for a control of the business of the dif ferent street railroads. The so-called Trades' Union has entered into a dis pute with which it can legally have no concern , ana now the question is not how many hours the men shall receive. but whether the companies are willing to be governed by the rules laid down by an utterly irresponsible organization of utterly irresponsible men, controlled by journeymen jaw -movers in the pre tended name ot labor. To this demand honorable men can make but one reply, and tbat is in the negative." The Republican has a Iontr editorial on the same subject, from which the fol lowing is taken: "Whatever the original rorm in wntcn it presented itself yesterday, the demand was an immediate and decisive action at the hands of those in authority. So long as the men contented themselves with a demand for shorter hours, and a refusal to work until their terms were complied with, no one could object to their action and everyone was at liberty to support these claims by peaceable means. Isut the moment the strike as sumed, as was witnessed yesterday, an attitude of hostile defiance , of the legal authorities of the city, and a boisterous attack upon the rights of person and property, that moment the strikers and those engaged in these demonstrations roneited the sympathy or the law-abiding public, and classed themselves among the enemies of peace and good order or society-" A Vigorous Protest. Chicago, April 27. The following was adopted at a meeting of the board of trade directors, to-dav: - Tbe board of directors of the Chicago board of trade having heretofore with held an expression of opinion upon the merits or demerits of the organized sys tem oi pooling railway earnings between this city and the east, has- also refrained from criticism upon what is known as the joint executive committee, managers of the railway pool, but it now declares that the action of said joint executive committee on the lmn instant, in ad vancing railway rates to the East five cents per hundred pounds, to take effect April 28th, withoutgiving the usual ten days notice, was in violation or tbe un derstanding between said executive com mittee and the public, and a positive breach of faith toward the shipping trade, ' The -board . regards with alarm such a violation of the policy which had previously been announced to the public by authority of said commit tee, as an arbitrary abuse qf power and as calculated to visit indescribable and unavoidable hardships and loss upon the gteat trade of the West whenever the wnim or this secret conclave shall choose to exact ir. The action of said joint committee on tne lotn inst. was such an act of treachery and tyranny as invited violence in Europe, and should invite in this country the united and untirinz ef forts of every citizen lor such commer cial, political, and legal relief as will ul timately deliver the shipping industries oi the west iroui the control or euch un worthy power as now disregards ils agreement and resort 1o equivocation in the extenuation ot its late unwarrant ed action. This protest by the authori ties or the lioard or Trade is considered in the commercial circles here, as im portant and significant. Elgin in Monrnluf A Terrible Accident. Kix.ih, 111., April 28. Between 8 and 9 o'clock this morning a small boat run ning over Rock River, between East and West Elgin, as a ferry to take the place of the bridge recently washed away, was capsized, and all tbe pas gangers, to the number of fifteen, with but one excep tion, were drowned. The boat was a mere screw, and was propelled by a rope. The first trip was made yesterday after noon. Those lost were rnoctly school children who wete on their way to school. The accident occurred in mid stream, but from what cause cannot now be told. . It is not possibe at this time to give the names of any of the lost. As so many have been crossing both ways morning, it is not known who were oa ine crait. Chicago, April 28. The following spe cial telegram has been received from Elgin and is the most coherent and reli able account of the terrible accident there this morning which has been re ceived in this city : A frighttul calamity occurred in this city this morning with the swamping of the ferry-boat used in crossing the river at Chicago street. It is estimated that thirty passangers were upon the boat and only fourteen have been saved. The boat was crossing Rock river from the west side and when nearly two-thirds over began to flood with water. The passengers, in conster nation, immediately flocked to the dry part of the boat, clinging to tbe railing which, giving way, precipitated them into the river. As the water poured into the boat it sank below the surface, leaving thirty human souls battling for life in the angry current. The water at this point was fully fifteen feet deep, and tbe current at least six miles per hour. Yesterday, the boat which was ordered by the city council as soon as their iron bridge fell last week, made its first run, and it is only a matter of surprise that an accident had not occurred sooner. It ,is only eleven by eighteen feet, and does not draw more than six inches. Much indignation is felt against both the council and the builders of the boat. Those missing and known to have been on the boat are: Thomas Murphy, An drew Dawson, Leo. Taylor, Wm. Cole vine, Elmer Foster, a little girl named French, Crcighton A. Simond, of New York, and J. S. Lockwood, of Rockford, guests at the Waverly, are missing, and as they intended crossing on the boat it is believed are lost. The river is being dragged, but no bodies have yet been found. A low estimate places the num ber of drowned at twelve or fifteen, Signs ot Prosperity. Washington, D. C, April 27. The treasury receipts to-day were nearly $1, 500,000. Tbe internal revenue receipts show a constant increase whisky, beer and tobacco all returning larger sums than ever before. This is attributed to increased activity in all branches of in dustry and increased capacity upon the part of the people to purchase. The per cent, of increase in the revenue from beer is greater than that on whisky, which is regarded as a hopeful sign, the evils of tx tr drinking being very much less than that which follows the consumption of whisky. At the rate revenue is coming in, ami allowing for expenditures it is, probublo that the reduction ol the public debt this month will lie over $10,0J0,O00. A party of Boston gentlemen, jufct ar- rived from a tour iu the southern stales, speak very encouragingly of the outlook in that quarter. They represent that all is peace, with favorable crop indica tions. They were astonished at tbe pro grcss'made in tbe manutacture of cotton and iron. They heard less of politics than usual, which they regarded as a very hopeful sign. The sound of a cot fon spindle is more musical to the cul tured Bostonese than a disquisition on the resolutions of 'D8. They represent that Nashville is enjoying a business boom, with more building than ever, and real estate stiff. They spent some time in Chattanooga and think tbat will eventually be the great city of the south. They think it willgo ahead of Atlanta and Nashville. The city is Republican in politics, has a sewer system, and not much debt. The Flood at Atchison Atchison, Kas., April 27.-r30ntrary to expectations the river has continued to rise steadily during the past twenty four hours, and is now twenty-two feet and four inches above low water mark.' Old residents say it is at least twenty inches above the level of the great flood of 1844. mere is nothing new in the situ ation here. The river covers all the bot tom lands in Missouri opposite this citv except the ground on which is a portion of East Atchison. From Kansas many families have been driven to this city for refuge, and a meeting was held this aiterrnoon to raise funds for the flooded sufferers. It is reported that the exten sive Bun Gak bottom in Doniphan coun ty has been submerged, and hundreds of settlers driven from their homes'. The Missouri Pacific road continues to afford us the only connection with the east, and it has to send its passengers and mails around by way of Topeka. A Big Transaction. New York, April 27.

Mills, formerly of San Francisco, were married this evening at the residence or the bride's lather on ruth avenue, oppo site the cathedral. The wedding was in tended to be as quiet as possible and few apparently were invited besides the im mediate lamily iriends. ihe ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. William F. Morgan, rector of the . St. Thomas church. Misplaced Confidence. Lawbejjce. Kas.. April 26. A sharp three card monte game was played on a traveling man on the Kansas Pacific ex press for the west last night. As the train approached this station an old and inoffensive looking man came up to the traveling man and told bi:n of a game that bad been played on him in St. Louis last week, and onerea to snow mm tne trick. The traveling man wanted to see it. but refused when he was asked to put on it, but at last consented to do so and took SOU out ot nis pocKet. jso sooner was the money out than the monte man's partner snatched it away from him, and then the two jumped from the train as it was slowing up at AAwrence station ana escaped. - An Embargo oa Ftenies.

He was called upon by the speaker to withdraw, and was removed to the bar by the ser-geant-at-arms.
