T lay with one hand the power of the government am the property of the citicen, and with the other to bentow it upon favored Individuals to aid private enterprises and to build up private fortunes, is none the loss a robbery because It is . tone nnder the forms of law and is called taxa tion. K Wallace. U. S. Supreme Court Reports, Page CM. Constitutionally a tax can have no other basis than the raising of revenues for public purposes, and whatever governmental exaction has not this basis is tyrannical and unlawful. A tax on im ports, therefore, the purpose of which is not to raise rcvenne, but to discourage and indirectly prohibit some particular import for the benefit of some horns manufacturer, may be questioned as being merely colorable, and, therefore, not war ranted by constitutional principles. Judge Coo ley In Constitutional Limitations. EDITORIAL COMMENT. Boys, get into the band wagon tbat beau's the cavalcade so glorously mov ing to the sate house over the prostrate S- o. p. Lkwelling will have 8,000 majority for governor in the 7th congressional district. Will the other districts do as well by him? We believe they will. Colonel W. C. Jones, chairman of the state democratic central emmittee in Kansas, estimates that the fusion majority in that state in November will be 20,000. "There was a partial eclipse of the sun on the 20th of October. A total eel $8e of the grand-son will occur on November 8th, ''says the Syracuse Dem ocratic Principle. Thirty thousand majority for the Weaver electors in Kansas is the esti mate of conservative men. Some re publicans place it as low as 15,000. Kansas City Times. Judge Cox, of Cincinnati who was secretary of the interrior in President Grant's cabinent and governor of Ohio two terms, has gotten out of Harrison's ice wagon and will vote for Clevelaud. Hail Columbia, happy land! Jerry Simpson is our man. The battle is now almost won; the race to victory is run; Jerry gets the votes and Ches ter the fun, and all are pleased whore in the van. Simply because he has accepted the democratic nomination for Congress, the Grand Army which had been laud ing General Sickles has declared war on him. And yet the Grand Army is said to de non-political. Kansas City Star. G rover Cleveland says: "I trust the people at all times, in all things." The democratic party is in favor of the Australian ballot system, which gives perfect freedom and secrecy to the ballot, and enables every voter to select 1892 out and mail to The Democrat, and of new subscribers, on the above Will E. Stoke, Publisher. his ticket with none to molest or annoy. The republican party is opposed to the system, because wherever it has been tried thus far it has shown that the democratic party has gained votes and the republican party has lost. Blaine tells Harrison's managers that he, Blaine, is not in condition to make speeches this campaign. After election when little Ben is knocked out Big Jim will be in much better condition and the fellows who are now making speeches will be laid up. Don't blame the damphool course of the Topeka Democrat too much to Charley Holliday, He is absent at Chicago, under an appointment of Governor Humphrey, and the Democrat is under the management of Crouch, the man who is M without honor or influence" at home. Everybody in the third commis sioner district who desires to see a competent, careful, capable and honest gentleman represent that district on the board of county commissioners can find just such a man in J. S. Win get, the democratic candidate. Vote for him on the 8th of November and you will never regret it. The action of the "stalwarts" at To peka disgusted the editor of the Salina Herald. He immediately went home and hoisted the ticket made by the democrats in July. The county cen tral committee also fell in line, and endorsed the peoples' party ticket from top to bottom. The attempt to sell the democrats to the republican party will work the same all over the state. The democrats, apparently, are quite confident of carrying Indiana this year. It is stated that a recent republican poll of the state shows a small plurality for the opposition. The democratic organ ization, under the management of Chair -man Taggart, is quite complete. There is consderable disaffection among re publicans who supported Harrison four years ago under promises of reward which have not been redeemed. Democrats of Barton county, make no pledges that you may possibly re gret before election day. The g. o. p. (propely interpreted "Greedy old Par ty") is becoming desperate, and its ad vocates will be promising everything in order to gain the day this year. Re member the past and cast an eye into the future. Remember that democracy has ever stood up for the rights of the laboring man and the producer, while the republican party has trampled upon those rights and prostituted the govern ment to the advantage of the rich na bobs who in turn furnish campaign funds to their political tools. Look into the future, and you will see that only the democratic party will be found builded on a foundation that will last. Evidences are daily accumulating that the railroads are managing and manipulating the strings to defeat Jerry Simpson and elect Chester I. Long. At the railroad center, for instance, there is much activity and lots of republican money to bet on Long, and false reports are being spread broad cast that Jerry has given up hopes of carrying his district and gone out of it in disgust. Every pos sible device is being worked to"hoodoo" democrats from supporting him, but all efforts will be unavailing. A friend of high tariffs, corporate robbery and force bills. Long should not receive the support of a single democrat in this county when there is a candidate in the field opposed to all of them, and that is where Jerry Simpson stands. Lyons Democrat. With Kansas grain fields averaging eighteen bushels per acre, and the de posits in the various banks of the state increasing two million dollars in the past three months, there need be no fear that eastern capital will refuse to seek legitimate investment in the state because the common people are striving to overthrow republican ring rule in the interest of monopolies and corpor ations, and because of it are denounced by republicans as repudiators and calamity hpwlers. Capital looks below the surface for dangerous indications, and big crops and increasing bank de posits do not frighten the money lender; neither does a desire for retrenchment and economy, even if it is urg!d as a political issue- Central Kansas' democrat. REDEEM KANSAS. Two years ago there were a number of republicans joined themselves with the democrats on the issue of resub mission. They canvassed the state against the republican party, and showed up the leaders of that party m a way that made them cringe. In Bar ton county there were a number of these men, among them W. W. Sow ards, Hon. D. A. Banta, the former having been chairman of the Resub mission republican convention and the latter their nominee for lieutenant gov ernor. These men told the people of Barton county of the perfidy, the hypocracy, the scheming and intrigu ing of such republicans as Humphrey, A. VV. Smith, Joe Hudson, Caraway, and the like, and showed how, under the leadership of such men, the fair state of Kansas has beeu greatly in jured, emigration turned away, capital driven out, hypocracy and falsehood enthroned and the rights of man sup pressed and bound dowu. They knew they were speaking the truth, and that a change from that slate of affairs could never come about through the repub can party. But where Bre they now? What has become of their consistency? Whence has flown their desire to rid the state of the set of cranks aud hypocrits who have so long controlled it? Here is where they are: They are on the stump for the very same fellows they so short a time ago so bitterly de nounced. They are pleading with democrats whose friendship they gained through their course of two years ago, to come now and stand by the very fellows they then denounced. Mr. So wards is a candidate for the legislature, standing with the hated Humphrey's, the A- W. Smith's and the Carawags on the platform made by the same gang of political shysters he so short a time ago denounced; while Mr. Banta is stumping the state for the same old crowd. Democrats, beware of such turncoats. Let not your friendship, gained through their position of two years ago, lead you into aiding them now. They would turn you oyer into the hands of men whom they themselves rebelled against. They would urge you to assist in per petuating the rule of the corrupt and bigoted gang which they so forcibly showed up in 1890. Beware of giving the enemy to Kansas any support. They are deceiving you. We hope that every democrat in Barton county will go to the polls on election day aud deposit a straight vote for the nominees of the democrat con vention of July 6th. By doing so you will aid in dethroning the gang of "political papsuckers" which Messrs. Banta and Soward3 told you about, and putting in their place a new set of men; men who are not surrounded by a coterie of office-holders aud place hunters; men whose public and private records are so far as we know, clean and unassailed, and who could not pos sibly perpetuate the order of tilings now installed in the state house, even were they so disposed which we know they are not. Redeem Kansas this year, and the future will prove to you that she is for ever out ef the republican column. Pension Bills. The following table shows the num ber of private pension bills signed by the presidents during their terms of ottic siuce 1861: Lincoln 44 Johnson 431 Grant (8 years) 536 Hayes (4 years) 333 Arthur (4 years) 706 Cleveland 1.S25 George W. Childs, the most loyal friend that General Gnant ever had, wrote the following about Grover Cleveland and published it in his well known newspaper, the Philadelphia Ledger: "In his private pension business the presideut (Cleveland) has been engaged in correcting the errors of congress. He has done it at the risk of having his motives misrepresented, his conduct denounced, his patriotism questioned, his popularity im pared; but conscious of being right, he has gone absolutely on in the faithful discharge of his duty. That is what he should be encouraged to continue to do, and by no others more than the brave meu who fought the battles of their country, and who should now stand shoulder to shoulder with the commander-in-chief in the army in his efforts to make the pension list a roll of honor and every pension certificate a token of valor and patriot ism." Prof. H. N. Gaines, candidate for state school superintendent on the peoples party ticket, will receive a flat tering vote in Barton county, where he is so well known. We do not believe there is an educator in the county who will not vote for bim. There is no comparison to be made between Prof. Gaines and the republican nominee, so far as intelligence, ability, progressive ness and fitness for the position are concerned. In fact, when one looks at the two state tickets, the same thing is noticeable; the one contains men selected for the positions because of their fitness for the offices, the other the republican ticket contains men who were put on for the ireason that they were thought by the Topeka ring to be the best vote-getters; qualification was not considered in any instance. A few days ago, says tfie Welling ton .standard, a certain prominent re publican speaker who is stumping Kan sas for the old party, in speaking to a gentleman whom he supposed to be a republican, in reply to what ht thought of the prospect in the state said: "We have the poll of the state and by our own showing Lewelling has about 20, 000 majority. It looks bad. We have got to do something to counteract this if we can. Our plan is to claim every thing. About two or three weeks be fore election, we expect to have men in various parts of the state to declare their disgust with some particular parts of the speeches made by the populist fellows and declare their intention to leave the party and go back to their old party. Interviews have been ar ranged with republican papers in dif ferent parts of the state, who will pub lish this list of names who have left the alliance and in this way try and make a break in their ranks all over the state." Wiien asked if they were sure they could get their men, he replied: "Oh, yes, we have them already selected; we arranged for them to go into that party last spring and they can now leave it as being dissatisfied." The expediency of this policy being questioned, he re plied: "Why, it is the only thing we have got left. We are beaten and have got to do something to try and save ourselves. In the congressional dis tricts Humphrey, Long and Funaton will be beaten; Broderick will pull through, so will Charlie Curtis in the Topeka district, too, I think, and Ba ker in the Sixth district may be beaten as the democrats do not like him." Who has heard a republican speaker talk this year upon the issues of vital importance before the people? Echo answers, "who." They dare not con fine themselves to their platform or to the live issues, but must needs resort to malignant and uncalled for- abuse and misrepresentation; must appeal to the prejudices of feeble minds, and imagining that some dread foe is threatening to gobble up our fair state they cry out in their fear and cringing "Stand up for Kansas!" Why, bless their poor benighted souls, our people always have and always will stand up for Kansas; aud this yeav they will stand up for her so well and so in telligently that they will wipe from her fair name the only poor reputation she has ever had that of being beastly re publican. Yes, democrats, let us stand up for Kansas in a way that will sink into oblivion the cranks and mercen aries who have, through the favor of the republican party, given our state I the farcial prohibitory liquor law; who have placed the railroads in a position that they knew no laws of right and justice; that have encouraged the tariff fed plutocracy of the east to levy tithings from our farms; that have called democrats "the street-walkers of politics" and "the slums and off scourings of the land." Yes, let us stand up for our homes, our honor and our name, by joiuing with the men who are w illing to go hand in hand with democracy on all the more vital ques tions of the age. Col. Joe Borders of the Hoising ton Blade a newspaper by-the-way which is a credit to the craft has al ready began to think of funeral pro cessions and the burying of his fond hopes for the election of Long. He says his feelings are "harrowed up" and the sod-cutter of impending woe is rolling over his heart-strings, and his "tears are caused to now." Col. Bord ers is a handsome mar, and it is un fortunate tnat he cannot controll his grief. If he had been here two years ago, and witnessed how easy our cham pion, Jerry Simpson, waxed the puddin' out of the Prince he would not have been led into the mistake of believing that the young elocutionist from Medi cine Lodge was ever in sight of an elec tion. Come, Colonel, do not take the matter so to heart. We all like you and would fain see you accept the in evitable as becomes a valient knight of the quill. You cannot look about your own bailwick and find ten straight, conscientious democrats who will not vote for Jerry Simpson in preference to Chester Long and high tariff, force bill, monopolies, trusts, dear money, and all objectionable features of re publicanism. Here are a few phrases used by a democratic paper in its campaign of education, and they refer to a respect able citizen of our county seat, where this paper is published. "Most un principled political tool" "picayunish pettifoger," "old reprobate." -Pawnee Rock Leader. We used the phrases in the Demo crat, and applied them where they be long, aud have more of the same kind, to apply in the same place whenever the "respectable citizen" stoops to defam ation, misrepresentation, and reckless lying in a political speech before a public audience. NEIGEB0KE00D HAPPENIGS. ellinwood. From the Advocate. Straw hats and ice cream pauts are taking rear seats. A sister of Mrs. Chas. L. Bacon from the east was here visiting the former for a few days last week. Democrats should vote the peoples party county ticket this year and next year will be the democrats year. Clark Reaugh and wife left Sunday evening for an extended visit to their old home in the Sucker state. Frank Archer, son of Judge G. R. Archer, left Tuesday evening for Fort Scott, Kansas, where he enters the Mo. P. railroad machine shops. The city schools show the largest enrollment that they have ever shown at this season of the year in the history of Ellinwood. This shows that the pop ulation of Ellinwood is larger than ever before. Carl Voight is authority for the statement that the approaching winter will be mild and full of thunder showers. We have had one thunder shower since Mr. Yoight made the above statement, hence we have reason to believe there 'may be some virtue in them. Democrats are you willing to be hoodwinked by the republican party who fosters in its ranks a man who said: "The meanest republican is better than the best democrat." John J. Ingalls made such a remark at one time in this state when the republican party did not need democratic votes. Don't forget these things when you go to vote. PAWNEE ROCK. From the Leader. Henry Lindas is in St. Joe for a two week's visit. The outrageous price of coal makes a man's blood boil so that he don't need any. The Christians will begin holding re vival meetings here soon, if they can get a building. Mrs, Wallace and daughter went to St. Joe Saturday where Mrs. Wallace will have her eyes doctored. Mel Cooper returned from Iola Tues day. He reports Mr. Wilson as some better than when bq went there. If a man's arms were as long and his feet as handy as a monkey's, what a record breaker he would be on a bicycle. Rev. Dixon took in seven new mem bers of the Methodist church at Seward Sunday. He has taken in 19 members in his charge during the quarter. If we could only arrange so that we could truthfully say, "Oh, 'Jones of Binghampton, he pays the freight,' " we would have no trouble about freight rates. Our lumber yard is doing a splendid business this fall, on account of the farmers being so extensively engaged in building. They are putting up new resi dences, additions, barns and granaries. hoisingtox. From the Dispatch . J. M. Carr has been appointed city marshal and now wears a big star. The appointment is a good oue. Work has been commenced on the Methodist church building at Langford. G. W. Mitchell, of this city, has the contract. A postoffice has been established at Redwing and H. E. Smith, the sage of the Cheyenne, has been appointed post master. Died: At his residence in Albion township, on Saturday, October 15, 1892, Mr. Alexander Spencer, aged 59 years, n month and 15 days. Jim Harper, a son of Geo. Harper near Olmitz, was pretty badly used up on Thursday of last week by being thown from a horse. John Bitner and O. P. Putnam had the misfortune to lose about Soo bushels of wheat by fire Wednesday. The wheat was on Mr. Putnam's farm. From the Blade. George Shriwise and Steve Carr left overland Tuesday for Oklahoma. Wrhat a glorious fall we are having, and what a glorious, thriving, growing, delightful city this is we live in. The council has set down on nuisances in the shape of swine and goats. Own ers of such property should consult the ordinance relating thereto. Most every farmer bringing wheat to town this fall takes home lumber and material for imprcvements. Our coun try people are building as well as us city folks. Let the good work go on. Our enterprising and successful far mer friend. Mr. Samuel McLean, will leave for the okL country to-morrow morning. He promises to bring us a case of real old Irish whisky oh his re turn. John Swiggert, who has been in the employ of the Typer house here for about a year, left Friday moruing for his old home at Carthage, 111. Mr. Swiggert is a brother of Mrs. John Typer. The local politicians of both parties seem to be unusaily quiet in this county, consequently the press remains in the same condition. Nevertheless, some body will be elected and somebody will be defeated. CLAFLIN .' From the Banner . We understand the Catholics contem plate building a church here some time during the coming winter. Mr. A. P. Warner, well known to all our people, died very suddenly near Wilson, one day last week. E. H. Grizzell left last week for his old home in Illinois, to visit his mother, who is not expected to live. Elmore & N orris have put in a pair of scales and will engage in the grain business, thus giving Claflin five dealers. Mrs. Hannah Horner, died at her home near this city on Sunday morning last at one o'clock, aged eigbty-one years and eight months. A large number of friends of Mr. and Mrs. Cannon gave them a surprise on Tuesday evening last; and tendered them their best wishes for snccess in their new home. Mr. Gerriets, who has resided near this city for the past tw years, sold out everything here last week and left for Clifton, Clay county, this state, where he will again engage in farming. The trnstees ot the M. E. church inform us that the erection of their new church building will be begun this week, and thay have given it out that it will be completed at once and that their next quarterly meetins will be held jn their own building. The Word ''Kiss" Parsed A young lady friend of ours in this city handed us the following, with the request to please publish it. (The parsing, not the kiss.) She says she knows all about it, (the kiss, not the parsing,) and wants her friends to be as wise as herself: "Ki3S is a conjunction, because it connects. It is a verb, because it sig nifies to act and to be acted upon. It is a preposition, because it shows that the person kissed is no relation. It is an interjection (at least it sounds like one.) and is a pronoun, because she always stands for the noun. It is also a noun, because it is the name of the osculatory action both common and proper second person necessary. Plu ral number, because there is always more than one. In gender, it is mascu line aud feminine mixed. Frequently the case is governed by circumstances and light, according to rule one. "If he smite you on one cheek turn the oth er for another smite." It "should al ways begin with a capital letter, be of ten repeated, continued as long as pos sible, and ended with a period. Kiss might be conjugated, but ought uever to be declined." The Kansas City Journal started the libel that Jerry Simpson was to have said, in conversation with some traveling man, that "TheDalton boys were no worse than the bankers they robbed." Poor old Commodore Peter winkle Townsley takes up the base and groundless fabrication and in the Tri bune asserts tbat it is so. Readers, do you not remember the action of t he republican press just on the eve of for mer campaigns: and do you not know that that press has been besmirched all over w ith just such false, despicable slush that had no foundatiou in fact? Remembering this, we do not believe the people of Kansas will pay any attention to the vile rot now; but will go right straight ahead and administer a justly deserved rebuke to the men and the party that will stoop to such dirty tricks and practices. The war of the rebellion is still being fought by a few of the cranks and narrow-heads who have nothing to do but stand on the street corners and burden the air with cheap, campaign cigars and bloody tales that have grown so stale that they smell to high Ueaven. In the meantime the indus trious farmer and laborer is going about his work and thinking: thinking if the live issues of the hour; of the difficulties that lie in his path of in dustrial progress; thinking of the man years of republican rule that have con tributed to maKing life harder to bear by the workingman and fuller of e.ase and luxury to the protected manu facturer. 1 Toe present will be the last cam paign made by the republicans as a party in Kansas. Their committee has made a thorough poll of the state, and find the party hopelessly in the soup to the tune of 20,000 at least. Mark the prediction. And. as you gr along, just note another fact: N more boodle will be s-nt out tt whipper-snappers. The committee wil take good care of that. They see th "handwriting on the wall." and pro pose to keep the funds within the f amii ircle. Seer Sterling Champion. IH MEM0BY OF CLEFFOBJ) OOSS. DIED OCTOBKC 3, 1892. Another hand is beckoning us. Another call is given; And glows once more with Angel steps, The path which reaches Heaven. Our voung and gentle friend whose suii'c Made brighter summer hoars. Amid the frosts of autumn time, Has left us with the flowers. There seems a shadow on the dar, His smile no longer cheers; A dimness on the stars of night, Like eyes that look through tear?. Alone unto our Father's will. One thought hath reconciled; That He whose lore exceedeth ours. Has taken home, his child. Kold him, O Father.' in Thine arms And let him henceforth be A messenger of love between Our human hearts and Thee. On earth we'll miss our darling boy, His kindness and hisloTe; Mar loved ones meet him brand by, In his radient home above. Sele ; ' i'. Gash or Credit. Credit is as a ball and chain arouud the leg of the buyer, the retailer, the, jobber and all who are parties thereto. It is a load, a bond which fetters all who practicejit and in the majority of cases inevitably ends in disaster and misery. It is perhaps impossible," in many cases, to dispense with it entire ly, and yet we know that with the ex ercise of a little patience and resolute self-denial even this has been done to the credit and happiness of all con cerned. In buyine on credit one gen erally realizes that he is paying more" for his goods than does cash custom ers and the dealer knows that a credit purchaser will buy much more than be would if he were buying for cash. Herein is a double evil. One wants only $20 worth of goods and because he hasn't the cash with which to pay for them is called upon to pay $21. Then he sees so many things around the store that be had wanted so long, and which, if he has them, would add to the comfort and pleasure of his wife and family, and he is tempted to add another $30 worth to his store account, and is on.the merchaut's boiks for a bill of fifty. This is a large sum of money, but he feels that after harvest, or after be has sold his hogs or his cattle or his corn, or after the arrival of the pay car, he can easily pay it. But w hen the time comes he finds that he hasn't a cent more than is called for In the purchase of things absolute ly necessary to run the house or farm, and in very many instances instead of" paying his store account first he leaves it unpaid for a more convenient season and adds to it from tune to time as the occasion requires. By and by he fiuds himself so involved that a sacrifice of something has to be made and is made, and in the sacrifice he is compelled to part with what is surely worth $150 for $100, and here is another loss; and it illustrates the manner in which many are kept poor and full of trouble all the time for want of prudence and self-denial. Let the motto be cash, as far as possible, all along the line, even though we do not dress as fine or live as high as some of our neighbors. Hoisington Blade. Passing of the Sod House. The day of the sod house in Barton county is gone. We know of only one within a radius of 7 miles of this place that is occupied. This one is plastered inside and out, and unless you approach very closely you would suppose it. to be a frame building painted white. Ten years ago and less there were two sod nouses within a quarter of a mile of the depot in town, now large frame dwellings replace them. Ou the roads running north there were several. Everybody remembers John Bauer's; it was well built with a shingle roof, 'and all sod house builders took it as their pattern. John now has a large frame to use. Then there was Ben Goodrich's combination house. A one room frame house stood beside a long, low sod roof which covered a cellar. The roof was raised off the ground about five feet on a sod wall, and it was the only sod cellar in the vicinity. One mile north were three of the old pattern. They are vacated uow and owners occupy ood frame dwellings. Northwest in a German settlement there weie many od bouses and barns, but we know of none that stand ujv. The onward march of Kansas grit has eradicated the once famous sod shanty on claim, and he who toiled diligently to break the prairie while the rattle suake Hissed under his feet and the antelope grazed, fearlessly near him, lias been rewarded and now occupies a palatial iweiiine, enjoying all that he desires unmolested by the howling coyote. Pawnee Rock .Leader. The Kansas wheat crop exceeds the value of the output from all the ld mines in the country. Why do not some of the "stand up for Kansas" re publican papers have a good word to say for the state occasionally, instead it trying to make out that her farmers are anarchists, socialists, repudiators etc.? Ours is the most glouri:uis state in che Union, and will this year be redeem ed from republican rule, in snite of ihe ip&amatic stauduppers.
