My Captain docs not answer; his lips aro pale and still. My father docs not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will; The ship is anchored safe and sound, its oyagc is closed and done: From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object wou: Exult, O share, and ring. O bell! Hut I, with mourning tread. Walk the deck where my Captain lies Fallen cold and dead. iraf Whitman. Editorial Notes. This is the nunivcrsary of the sad dest day the United States ever knew.

Journal: Fighting Funston in Kansas is a geod deal like pouring water on a goose's back. It wastes tho water and doesn't hurt tho goose. We wonder what the Alliance wool growers think of their farmer repre sentatives in Congress by this time. Everyone of the five, oxcopt Otis, voted for the freo wool bill, which if enacted would mean loss and disaster to overy wool-grower in tho United States. Wi: are glad to noto that tho Otta wa Republican is sufficiently prosper ous to warrant it in Issuing a semi weekly edition. Under the able man agement of Mr. Clark Wilkinson the Jicjniblican has becomo ono of tho most influential papors in eastern Kansas. Wichita Eagle: While a great hue and cry is being raised about beating Farmer Funston for the nomination for congress, practical politicians say that it cannot bo done, and tho men who aro trying it might just as well direct their energies to fill agophor holo with water. Eigene Wake, tho poet from Bour bon, was in Topoka this week and said that Funston's namo is Dennis and Dick Blue's Ell. Topcka Jour nal. Tho Register plus its faith to Eugeno Ware as a poet; but it is hap py to say that as a political prophet ho is the worst failure on earth. Capital: The Democratic papers areall worried about Funston's mouth. That important organ of our congress man was built to accommodate an eight-story voice that can bo heard all over tho Socond district, and for ten years it has kept Democrats down there on tho run. It Is not handsome, but it is useful. At the Republican primaries held in Ft. Scott last Saturday six promi nent members of the Alliance party renounced their allegiance to that'par ty and united with tho Republicans. Tho wanderers are returning. Tho gates of tho Republican party, like tho gates of Castle Garden swing in ward this year. Geo. wTcrane, tho Topoka pub lisher, says that Ed. T. Barber, of Al len county, has spoiled moro school blank and book records for him than any other man in Kansas, spoiled them by devising something better. Mr. Barber, we might remark for tho benollt of those who may not havo seen tho statement before, is the man who is going to bo tho noxt State Superintendent of Public Instruction, I Charley Scott claims that Walt Whitman never wrote but one poem. If Scott expects F. B. Dawes, of Clay t Center, to support his man for State Superintenuent, ne uau Deuer iuku ik i back. Minneapolis Messenger. i Out of regard for the opinion of our friend Dawes, we will change the original declaration and say that ' Whitman wrote at least one poem. It , will be found at the head of these col- ' The Clay Center Times announces tho candidacy of Senator Harkuess, 1 of that place, for Lieutenant-Governor. Among all the candidates for this of fice there is none so well qualified by experience to fill it as Mr. Harkness, as he has served eight years a? a ( member of the body over which, as Lieutenant-Governor he would be call ed to preside. Personally and polit Jcallv Senator Harkness is a clean man ana ms uominauuu ' strengthen the ticket. would ' One of the strongest, if not the very ' stroncest of tho men yet suggested for the Republican nomination as Con I gressman-at-large is Gen. J. C. Cald jwell, of Topeks. Gen. Caldwell's magnificent military record has given 1 him a national reputation which, with ; his fine bearing and splendid ability as an orator, would insure him a com I manding position on the floor of the house from the very becrinnlng. The Hutchinson convention will make no ' mistake if it nominates Gen. Caldwell. XXVI. Secketary Rusk is firm in his be-j lief that the most prosperous era for the farmer that has ever been known is just beginning. -'Tho people of this world have got to bo fed," he says, "and their food must coniB from tho soil. We have 05,000,000 people here to-day. Twenty years from now we will have 100,000,000, and in less than two generations 200,000,000 Amoricans will wake up every morning in these United States and cry to tho farmers for breakfasts." Them will bo no complaint of low prices when our own peoplo consumo as much as, or more than, our farmers can supply. It isn't likely that tho Atlanta Con stitution (Dem.) was informed of the situation in tho Second Kansas dis trict. But if it had been it could not have written lines that a ould fit the caso more exactly than do the follow ing: lime jou heard about tho party of tho third third Part? It'sacheckln' of its baggage, and is ready fui i start. It's a comln with a hummin' from the meadows to the mart Oh, there's noise about the party of tho third third part? But it happens that the party of the third third part. Though its hot about tho headgear Is all right about the heart. And it ain't a-goin' to harness up the mule be hind the cart Hut the Democratic engine, when It whistles for the start. Will pull along the party of the third third part! Republican prospects aro growing brighter every weok. Tho sweeping victory in Rhode Island, where the fight was mado on National issues and where tho Democracy were so much in earnest that tbey oven prevailod on Urover Cleveland to conio to their help, and the muniucipal victories iu Michigan, Wisconsin and Kansas, show that tho peoplo have lost faith in tho Democratic party. Tho way the majority in Congress has fallen down in its assaults upon tho silver and tariff legislation of tho Republi can party has contributed very ma terially to this distrust. The Repub lican party is in great luck to have a Democratic majority In Congress on the eve of a Presidential election. A large edition of tho speoch of General Bankhead (ox-Coufederato) I in tho House in denunciation of Union pensions is being printed for circula tion in the South. This is tho speoch in which Bankhead threatened a dis ruption of tho Union if the South is not relieved of the pension tax. Ac cording to Bankhead tho North must pay the entire amount of pensions itself or prepare to faco another rebel lion. The South will not submit much longer, ho says, to paying a part of tho pensions. At tho risk of being denounced for waving tho bloody shirt tho Register would suggest that as long as such speeches as this are heard In Congress the old soldiers would do well to stay pretty clo60 to tho Republican party. The Register suggested last week that tho rate of interest on money was more a question of security than of "per capita," and gavo somo facts that scorned to sustain that proposi tion. In farther illustration of tho truth of this assertion, a man who re cently visited Indiana told us that while ho was there his brothor, a farm er, came homo one day much elated because he had succeeded in loaning somo surplus money which he had in the bank, at six por cent interest. And a man who came hero last week from northern Illinois said that ono could borrow any amount of money there at fivo and bIx per cent. In tho light of these facts is it not e'ear that tho first and most important thing for us to do here in Kansas is to restore the credit of the State. This paper will favor tho nomina tion ui ...

"The candidate is to be a Democrat J and elected as a Democrat." The Democrats furnish tho candidate and tho People's party elect him. There i is nothing hoggish about that Not I the least bit No. 19 AGAIN A "WINNER. Mr. Funston's renomination is set tled. Tho primaries m Allen, Bour bon, Franklin, Miami and Johnson counties have resulted in giving Fun ston a solid delegation from each of them, thus assuring him 52 votes out of 102 in the convention. In add ition to these he will get without doubt the 14 votes of Douglas, and it seems now probable that he will car ry tho 17 votes of Wyandotte. In any event tho fight is over, and the result of tho convention that is to be held at Lawrenco April 28, is already known. The Register at no time anticipat ed the defeat of Mr. Funston, because it had entire confidence that tho peo plo recognized and appreciated his worth and that they would stand by him. Nevertheless it makes tho an nouncement of his success with much satisfaction because tho contest that is now ended has been in somo respects tho most formidablo that has over been made against him. ami his trial is therefore tho most notable and sig nificant. To win in a contest with such men as W. A. Johnson, R. W. Bluo and J. F. Perduo, is no mean victory, and can leavo no doubt of the victor's strength and of his hold upon the people. Tho Register congratu lates Mr. Funston. And it also and oven more heartily, congratulates the Republicans of tho Second district upon their wisdom in having again endorsed as their standard-bearer a man who has always been faithful aud honest, who has been truo to his constituents, who has been truo to the principles of his party, and who never yet lost a political battle. getting better. We were talking with a man from Illinois last week and ho said that he was tho other day oirored 55 an acie, spot cash, for a farm in that State which he bought eighteen months ago for $39 an aero. Reports of almost equal advances in the price of land come from nearly all tho great farm ing States. And with these reports comes tho assuranco also that the farmers are pa3'ing their debts and are rapidly getting in better condition financially than they havo ever been. The evidence seems incoutestible that the iarming industry iu tho United States has struck the bottom of the depression and has begun climbing tho hill of another period of prosperi ty. Kansas has not yet felt tho ad vance in tho price of farm land to o very marked degree, largoly, no doubt, because the description of tho condition of the Stato given by those whom tho State unfortunately put forward as its representatives has not been such as to attract immigration. But the fact that Kansas farmers have paid 7,000,000 of debts in the past nino months is being published abroad and it will finally ovortako and put down the slanderous tale of woe which has doneus so much harm. If this good recprd can be followed by a good crop this year, Kansas will join tho procession. And when this happens, when tho price of farm products advances to a remunerative figure, when tho value of farm land advances and tho de maud becomes brisk, when farmers who are reasonably prudent and in- ... , , . . .. . , ' dustnous are out of debt, wo think we know of a certain political party that will have to go out of business.
