No, we believe it is not recorded of James that he ever made an ass of him self politically or turned the United States Senate over to the hands of the Democrats to gratify his personal spleen We wish you couUl assert as much for your man Conkling. The public debt statement for Slay has been issued, and shows a induction for that month of 11,1.0,721. These figures Justify the lielicf that the reduc tlou of the debt for tho fiscal year end ing June ISOth will reach $100,000,000. This is an excellent showing and serves as a handsome vindication of the prutlent financial policy of the govern. meut. as well as the eminent fitness of Mr. Windom for the position to which he has lctn called by the President. While the exact political complexion of Senator Mahone is still a legitimate theme of speculation, it seems to be pretty fully settled that he is not in active sympathy with tho Democratic party. At least he expressed himself in n recent interview, in favor of the tar i IT, honest money, a free ballot and a fair count, and no orthodox Ilourboii would regard, with any degree ot allowance, a man who would endorse such tlagraut heresies. Nobody has a-sked Hayes what he thinks about it. Exchange. No, but they make a good deal of a racket alout Ueneral Grant One has a personal following and the other hasn't I'aola Republican. It seems Mr. Hayes didn't wait to be asked. You fellows must have missel a certain telegram from Cleveland, dated Juno 1. If the latest edition of ex-presidency didn't flourish his kulfe mighty close to IIohcoc's scalp we are badly mistaken, that's all. There is a rumor in New York that Mr. ISrady will sue Attorney-General McYcagh and Postmaster General James for libel, on account of the charges pre ferred against him in connection with the star route business, lirady seems to have almost as great a penefuutt for practical jokes as Sam Wood, whose keen sense of humor recently cropped out in ii similar proceeding instituted by him against the Chase County Leader. New York Tribune: The Republi can party, through its administration and its senators at Washington, through Its delegates in National Convention at Chicago, through its newspapers in the whole country, through jts members in the legislature at Albany, has declared that Conkling and Piatt are wrong. By refusing to acquiesce in this judgment, Conkling and Piatt put themselves out side tho Republican party and become bolters. Their faction is the bolter's faction, and every man who votes with them is a bolter. A ghoHt who clanks chains is a nuis ance, but a ghost who throws bricks is positively dangerous. Such a muscular spirit has lately been masquerading about a deserted bouse in Chicago, be neath which money is supposed to be burled. This sanguinary apparation brings to tho pastimo of brick-throwing considerable skill and admirable dis crimination, for on a recent evening he knocked Policeman Martin O'Conner off a board fence tho first shot, and sub Boqucntly camo within an ace of disem bowelling un inquisitive reporter. Tho country will be glad to learn that the report that Congressman Updcgrafl, of Ohio, recently presented President Garfield with a fancy team of horses is contradicted by excellent authority, Mr. Updegralf having simply made the pur chase at tho request of the President, who paid for the horses, as ho should have done. There is a spirit of inde pendence among the American people which resents any disposition on the part of their chief executive for making himself a party to a political gift enter, prise, so to speak, and the country would deeply regret to sec duplicated in any future administration, the humiliating system of benefactions which marred the regime of General Grant New York Herald : The fourth day of the balloting at Albany for the vacan cies in tho United Slates senate closes with a practically unchanged situation. Both parties, to borrow a military phrase, are still on the skirmish line, ex changing shots, getting their guns in position and awaiting reinforcements. As at Waterloo and it will be a Water loo for some party the rival captains ore lookiug for night or Blucher. To which party Blucher is coming, in what direction he' is moving and where lie is, arc the great mysteries. The com mander of the custom house troops think he sees the conquering battalions march ing from Washington. The rival cap tain is looking in another direction no one can tell where except himself, for all his plans are veiled in mystery. As it stands now the battle is one of the most interesting in tho checkered his tory of our state jRilitica. But whatever tho event may be it will be a victory fox the spectators the great mass of the jteo ple who in this game of political chess are apparently of no account whatever. Mr. Conkling may be defeated and sent to Elba. But the march to Paris follow ed, and allied Europe had to make and find a St Helena. Is the Republican party strong enough to follow the paral lel r OUR SHEEP INTERESTS. The convention of Kausas wool grow ers which met here June 1st, was on im portant gathering. It was a representa tive body of our best and most thriving producers. The Wool Growers' Associa tion was only organized last January. and this was its second meeting. The members were from sections of -the state over two hundred miles apart, which shows that the organization has the sanction of, and is attracting the at tention of those engaged iu the business from every quarter of the state. The in terest manifested in the proceedings was one of the most promising features of the convention. Sheep husbandry in our state seems to have Itecome, within the last two or three years, one of the leading industries or the state. It is a matter of surprise how it has grown to those who have not watched it. The few statistics which we were enabled to gather at the convention, showed thai the mem bers owned an average of nearly 1,200 head of sheep each, which may be counted as something extraordinary for to new a country, and yet the sheep owned by them must be comparatively a 'mere drop in the bucket" to the whole number in me state, only about one fourth of the counties of the state were represented in the convention. It is probable that not over half the aheep were reported in any single county, be cause the statistics were only asked for from those who were members of the association. In the most of the counties represented not one fourth of the number owned in the respective counties was named. We believe It entirely safe to say there were a milliou sheep sheared in Kansas this season, and that a fair average yield would lie seven pounds per head. If these figures are anywhere ill be in the neighbor- and a halt of dollars near correct, there w baud ol a million brought into the state this year by our wool clip. This will be an immense help to the people of Kansas. The late convention was also impor tant to the interests of wool growers in the matter of the improved condition of the sheep and. wool. Like almost every. thing else in Kansas, the wool growing business has been managed in a slip shod manner. The sheep have not re ceived proper attention, and the wool, on reaching market, has been in bad condition, and consequently waa graded low. The price received has been in proportion to the grade. We speak ot the sheep and wool of Kansas generally, because we are glad to state there have been some exceptions from the above characterizations. It is one of the chief ob jects of the association ot the wool grow ers to bring about a better condition of things in the state in the management of tb.Ia growing and important interest. The association has already had a very beneficial influence in this regard, and can, if it is energetic in its exertions, put Kansas sheep and Kansas wool upon a level with the best in the country. To this end the association is working, and should receive the support not only of wool growers but all others who can in any way assist the objects of the associ ation. M. W. Iteynolds announces that he will issue the first number of a new ag ricultural paper on the 11th inst to be culled the Kansas Rural. There may bo a field for such a paper in the south eastern part of the state, and we have no doubt but that if Milt will "let himself loose," so to speak, and put the work on the paper necessary to make it suc ceed, he will reap success. It is, in our opinion, no easy task to edit an ag ricultural paper. It probably is not much of task to fill such a paper with extracts from down east papers, which have but little application to western agriculture, and by inserting long winded communications, bodily, furnished by ambitious scribblers, but this is not editing. This is the way, however, a large majority of the agri cultural papers arc edited. There is no industry put upon the preparation of the matter for their columns, and but little thought. They are too often in the hands of men who seek the influence of farmers for some selfish purpose. Farmers have been terribly imposed upon by so called agricultural papers. As a class they are stupid, and are sometimes the organs of some private scheme. There are a few good agricultural papers, devoted to the inter ests of agriculture and kindred subjects. Tbcy have met with wonderful success. Tho field of agricultural journalism in Kansas has not been much cultivated in tho past few years, and there is room for a paper of this kind which has industry, intelligence and brains. Milt has all these qualities, and if he will put them into his new venture, we have no doubt but. that it will meet with gratifying success. We certainly hope the Rural may bo such a paper as the farmer, the fruit grower and the stock man needs, and that it may be so conducted that its merits will demand for it a large meas ure of success. Governor St John in passing through bt Louis recently, was discovered by an emissary of tho Globe Democrat, in a late number of which is contained an account of the interview between His Excellency and the press representa tive. The Governor speaks in the most hopeful terms of the prohibition expe riment and thinks it has already result ed in crippling the liquor traffic in Kan sas to such an extent as to make its final extinction a question of a very short time. He gave it as the result of his observation that there there was a perfect acquiescence in the provisions of the amendment in all of the towns anu cities oi Kansas witn the ex ception of Leavenworth, Atchison and Dodge City, and that the prosecut ing attorneys throughout the state, were, in the main, generally faithlul and vigi lant in enforcing the temperance law and making it warm for offenders against it Ho thinks Kansas is receiving her full share of im migration, and says that people are coming into the state at tho rate of ISO,- 000 a year. He spoke in the most en couraging manner about the crops, and upon the whole he regards the general prospects of the state this season full of cheer to all who have identified their in terests with the future of our young and growing commonwealth. There are from three to five Conkling papers in this state which are now en. gaged in assuming all the virtue and political honesty there is in Kansas. Everything is Conkling I Conkling! ! Conkling! ! ! with them, and if a man happens to differ with them he is a ninny, a henchman, "bought up," and all that sort of thing. According to the creed of these fellows the administra tion has no rights which they or their lord Roscoe are bound to respect Mr. Garfield committed an unpardonable sin in refusing to bow the knee to the hero of Kate Sprague, The drivel these fellows dole out about Garfield di8iupting the Republican party because he chose to exercise the functions of president of the United States rather than to let Conkling exercise tLem for him, is awful thin, not to say disgusting. A small negro boy, living with a color ed family named Smith, in St Tammany Parish, La, was roasted to death in pun ishment lor stealing a loaf of bread. Smith and bis wife practice voodoo ism among the ignorant negroes in the par ish. The boy waa nearly starved and embraced the opportunity offered by the absenca of the family. When the theft was discovered they tied the boy in the fire place and roasted him so badly that he died shortly after.

The Episcopal convention of Iowa de cided to allow women to vote at vestry nicotines. - ' Work was begun at Chicago Saturday on a new elevator with a capacity of a 1,100,000 bushels. The mayor, sheriff, county judge and other prominent citizens of Crawfords- ville. 1ml.. have been indicted for con ducting a church lottery. Secretary Sherman denies the imputa tion that he was connected with, or re sponsible for, the errors and abuses de veloped in the treasury investigation, and says this will appear in due time. John Anderson, member ol congress from the first district of Kansas, has ap pointed J. C. Kuhn as West Point cadet, be ranking first in fifty seven applicants who were examined. The czar is practically a prisoner.- He is surrounded by guards all the time and any one having business at the pal ace at Gatchina, must undergo the most rigorous search whenever they have oc casion to go there. The emperor en joys a constant dread lest something ill go off. The editor of the Valley Virginian, Col. Yost, a prominent Republican, says the ticket nominated recently by the Readjusters don't suit anybody, not even the party they are to represent In in the canvass. The Republicans, he says, will put ont a full state ticket at the next election. Bob Iogersoll is trying to persuade the President and Secretary Blaine that evidence enough to convict the star route men will not be forthcoming, and that MacVeagh and James, with the as- I)e!U!CtivC8 Woodward and Oijaao. are entirely too light in weight to engineer me matter. The evidence in the suit of the credi tors of Archbishop Purccli for the sale of church property to pay his debts is to the effect that under the canon law bishop holds church property in trust for the congregations and he can not divert it to other purposes than those In tended by the donors. The testimony is, therefore, in favor of the congregations and against the creditors. The internal revenue collections for the present fiscal year, to the 1st instant, have aggregated $123,443,233. Should they continue in the same ratio for the present month, the total for the year will be 9134,834,100. Commissioner Ranm, in his annual report, estimated the re ceipls for the year at nearly $135,000, 000. HERE AMD THEEE. If the last ballot in the New York leg islature looks like a "stampede to Conk ling" the country baa tailed to grasp the resemblance. Rhode Island, patriotically mindful of France in the Revolution, has resolved to entertain as her guests the French delegates to the Yorktown celebration. If Mr. Conkling reflects the attributes of the typical Stalwart, the sooner the breed runs out and becomes extinct, the better for the Republican party and the country. Even the St. Louis Globe Democrat is beginning to sing low on Roscoe Conk ling. MacCullagh always begins tumble about the time that a couplo big brick blocks fall upon him. to of Six sisters and a brother reside near each other in Eastern Massachusetts, whose united ages are B40 years and months, and there has been no death their generation of their family for eighty years. New York Tribune: Conkling's fight ing for a vindication recalls the familiar story of the man who "borrowed" $5 of another, but had to knock him dow several times as a preliminary induce ment to lend it The papers have considerable to say about the devastation Wb'ioU is being wrought by locusts in North Carolina Georgia and some sections in the east but that aggressive insect can never hope to be fully advertised tillit strikes Kansas. New York Herald: Nearly a hun dred and fifty cattle from the finest herds in England and Scotland are on their way to this country. At this rate the angular, osseous "long horn," peculiar to America, will soon be as hard to find as the buffalo. The state debt of Ohio, amounting over $4,000,000, has been refunded 8 If percent, a lower rate of interest than was ever drawn by the bonds of state or even the United Slates. It is unnecessary to add that Ohio is Republ can in politics. .The elder Mrs. Garfield and her younger grand-children have returned to Mentor, where they will remain during the summer. The venerable mother of the President, who is much attached to Ohio, is delighted with tho change, as are the children, who vastly prefer the woods and sandbanks of Lawnsfield to the more Imposing surroundings of the White House. Kansas City Times: The Duke of Sutherland's party are now in Denver receiving homage of the border civiliza tion. The Duke wasn't worshipped to any great extent in this blarstcd city you know. At the Coatcs House, he and bis friends were accorded the same ac commodations and treatment that other travelers get One of the bloody Brit ons complained that there was no wash bowl and pitcher in Uiis room and was told that he might evacuate the pre mises if he wasn't pleased with the situ ation. Just then the Duke stepped up and inquired what the trouble was and Col. Coates told him what he had said to tho other gentleman of the party. One of tho clerks with pale face and bated breath drew Col. Coates aside and ask ed him if he knew whom he was talking with. "No," replied the Colonel. "Why, that's the Duke of Sutherland," said the clerk. "I don't care if it's the Emperor of Russia," exclaimed Col. Coates, "if he don't like my house he can get out of it" : PERSONAL AND POLITICAL. Probably Mr. Conkling wants to be knocked down till he gets fighting mad The Missouri Republican thinks that the half-breeds will half a gay time when they try to take Jack Logan's scalp. - - - The situation at Albany is growing depressingly monotonous, but the coun try should be able to stand it if Mr. Conkling can. A Kansas editor has sold out his paper and is going to invest in mining inter ests. Some men seem to be as xealons in the pursuit of penury as others are in the straggle for opulence. New York Tribune: The suggestion that Conkling would make a good hotel clerk is a valuable one. He has a great future ahead of him there. He could put all his enemies on the top floor. Chicago Tribune: "I would like to get just one chance at tho man who said that the way to carry war into the enemy's country was to burn all the bridges behind you." Roscoe Cockling. The Democratic editors who have been devoting space to obituary notices of Senator Mahone are beginning to real ize that there Is enough vitality la the corpse to make a tolerably lively funeral. It has been observed that the future or Mr. Plait is behind him. This is highly probable, but -what is filling the soul of the ex-senator with burning an guish is the terrible reflection thai his past is not before him. Mr. Conkling praiesaes to be abun dsjatly satisfied wih the prospect at Al bany. The gi&at primage ip probably emulating the cheerful example of Mark Tapley. The situation, to a caref ul pb server, certainly offers to the ex-Senator a rare opportunity for "being jolly un der crditbj jcifcuujsianccs." OVER THE STATE. Fifty head of horses were sold in Lar- ncd last week. Harvest will commence next wetk in Sumner county. Oxford Is blessed with a pontoon bridge across the Arkansas. Mr. Merrill, of Peabody, is scndiiig off about 400 quarts of strawberries per day. .... The new hotel at Newton Is to be call ed the Hotel Strong, in honor of Gener al Manager Strong of the Santa Fe. Salt City, Summer county, is assum ing considerable proportions as a resort ics there are destined to become as noted as the famous Eure ka Springs, of Arkansas. Enterprise. Some of the horses which -were sup posed to have been burned up in the re cent fire at Howard, have turned np safe and sound, having made their escape from the burning stable which was de stroyed on last Saturday morning. Wm. Martindale, of Greenwood coun ty, sold 400 head of cattle this week to Thos. Felt, of Columbus, Ohio, the de livery to be made at the buyer's option after the 15th of August. The cattle will be consigned to Stewart &.Co., National yards, East St Louis. M. V. Beatty, late postmaster at Clyde, Kansas, was recently taken to Topeka to answer to the charge of being a default er to the amount of $1,500. His fiscal embarrassments are probably due to a swelling ambition to emulate, on a modest scale, the brilliant financial achievements of Mr. Brady. Some time last month a young woman named Dinsmore mysteriously disap peared from Newton and has not since been beard ot by her family. Any in formation regarding her whereabouts will be gratefully received by her father, Charles Dinsmore, whose post office ad dress is Castleton, Reno county, Kansas. An English gentleman has purchased thirty-six quarter sections, or five thous and seven hundred and sixty acres of land in Park and Eagle townships in this county for farming purposes. He has set live earn breaking mows to turn- ine on the sod. wnicn win dc sowed, to wheat this fall. He expects to seed three thousand acres with wheat in Septem ber ana October. Wichita tragic Abijah Wells has retired from the editorial chair oithe Senaca Tribune, aud is succeeded by A. J. Felt The first editor who ventures an observation in this connection regarding a long Felt want, will be promptly suspended from the nearest Cottonwood. Topcka Capital: This is a funny world. Judge Crozier decides that a probate judge has no right to grant per mits to sell liquors nor to do anything else under the law; and the probate judge of Harvey county has sued Dr. Sherrick for fees for taking his affidavit to not violate th law in prescribing liq uors. Speaking of the salt wells in Sumner county the Wellington Press says Here in Sumner country is the richest and purest brine known to civilized man. The supply thereof is inexhaustible. Its manufacture has been taken in band by men who understand the business and have sufficient capital to prosecute the work. It is within easy reach of railroad transportation and pan supply all this western country with batter and cheaper salt than can be obtained from the east It is no idle boast to say that Salt City, Sumner county, Kansas, will soon out rival all competitors in the manufacture of salt. A wheat expert from St Louis has just been over Sedgwick county, the Eagle says, aud reports a promising yield which will average 17 bushels per acre. The county has in 100,034 acres of wheat, which at 17 J per acre would give a total crop of 1,750,595 bushels. The Eagle has it 1,755,945, an error of only 5.350 bushels in favor of the county, which is remarkably close figuring for that paper. The Eagle thinks that luaking due allowance for losses from wet weather, etc-., lied jj wick county may be safely set down for a yield of 1,500,000 bushels of wheat, which at 70 cents per bushel, would bring to the farmers $950,000. The Kansas State Musical Jubilee, to be held at Bismarck on the 18th ani 19th of August, will doubtless prove the grandest affair of the kind in the his tory of Kansas of this part of the great west Professor C. E. Leslie or ganized at Lawrence last week a chorus of over 500 voices which will be subject ed to thorough drill from now until the time of the jubilee. The professor has with him in the state twenty -eight pro fessional teachers who will assist him in organizing and conducting the musical congress, and every town in the state of one thousand inhabitants and over will be visited with a view to forming choruses to be placed under training nntii tne time oi coming together for a general rehearsal the day and evening before the opening of the jubilee. Twenty-eight towns in the state have been canvassed, and nearly four thou. sand voices have been enrolled, with fully one-half of the state still to hear from. It is said that the full chorus will be the largest ever seated on a stage in the west, and the opening number, a selection from the opera of Errnani, will be rendered by over 5,000 voices. Accommodations are being prepared for 100,000 people, and as the event will be one which is bound to advance the rep utation of Kansas in the musical world, we hope to see Emporia handsomely represented and her excellent musical talent made to contribute to the success of such a momenteous epoch in the annals of the state.

Have tried a number of machines, bat until we tried the ICoyal iSL Joint we have never been able to get a machine that would make a long elastic stilrli without drawing or puckering the cloth.
