The wheat crop did not seem to ho in any wav affected by tho recent re volution in Kansas. Its promises are more sincere than were those of the candidate before election. Since tho smoke of battle has clear ed away, and after a more mature de liberation, we conclude that the repub licansof Kansas will yet find consid erable to be thankful for this fall. tw are lots of men who Intended to be leaders in the coming Kansas legislature who will bo thanicrui " they can get a good job husking corn during the winter for the farmer who beat them. The new ship railway as designed to connect the great lakes with the St. Lawrence and Atlantic is tho first great step toward uniting the com mercial interests of the United States and Hanadi.

The gold plate on all such ware is considerably thinner than it was a few years ago. William Rice defeated his father John II. Rice, for representative iu the Fort Scott district by a majority of 27. It was a peculiar and hard fought battle. The old gentleman is now talking of contesting the election. The Sionx City Journal sizes it up : "The republican party has beeu put through a thrashing machine. The farmers did the thrashing, while the democracy held the sack and took the grain, cheerfully giving the farmers the chaff." - The official vote of the state, with the exception of five thinly settled counties on the western border, gives Humphrey 113,407, Robinson 08,928 nd Willits 100,400. These figures Will staud outll the ocial canvass on the 24th, and then will be confirmed duly except in the totals uhere" the five counties are still to come in. Kansas City Times: There is not t state in the nnion that could famish papers that would get as much funont of the recent election as do the news papers of Kansas. Not one has turn ed up yet that is sore over the out come, and some evcu go so far as to 1 thankful that it is no worse. There could not be found in the world, probably, 800 other men iu one line of business who are as pood humored I5G3 day in the year as are the editors of Kansas.

Short Creek 'Republican: Now then Mr. Farmer boar in mind that on the dav of election, when you were howling about the starving farmer and voting against the paity you blamed for tho condition of things. you were getting 25 cents for butter. 25 cents for eggs, 00 cents for corn. Hay, potatoes, iu fact all farm products were bringing tho very bent of prices. Compare this stato of affairs with that at tho end of your term and let us know the result please. We'll bo here to hear your report. THE IMPOUTASCE OF ONE VOTE. The late election has again proven the importance of one vote. In the Girard representative district L. Loo mis, republican, was defeated by A. J. Cory, people's candidate, by one vote. In Marion county there was a tie on rcpres?ntative, each candi date receiving 839 votes. In Ellis county tho republican candidate for the same office had a majority of two. No voter should over neglect his duty. THE KANSAS HOUSE. From the latest returns it appears that tho next Kansas house of repre sentatives will contain 08 members elected by the people's party, 10 demo crats and 27 republicans. In addition to these there will he C republican del egates who have no vote, 2 democrats and 2 people's men. There will be a lively scramble lor tho United States senatorshii in the lcgUlaturc.

THE STATE ELECTION. Tuesday night last the republican state central committee had received returns on governor from ail the coun ties in the state except Stanton and Logan, the vote of either of which can not" reach 300.

Kellogg, attorney general, who is defeated by J. N. Ives, the fusion candidate. The two constitutional amendments were defeated by largo majorities. It will be noticed from the above that tho republican party wreck in Kansas is not as complete as was sup posed when the News went to press last week. TO BE GIVEN TO THE WOULD. The following is a aispatch dated Berlin, Nov. 11, showing that Trof. Koch, the great German physician and scientist, will 60011 make public bis cure for consumption: In accordance with his statement that he desires neither material ad pQiitnorn nor necuuiarv reward. for his discovery of a method for the cure of consumption, Prof. Koch will ,in Ira or Ihreo daVS Dllblisll a full ac count of his researches iu connection with his discovery.

The success of the treatment is certain in tubercular af fections of the skin, joints and bones, aud also in early stages of pulmonary fomplaints. The lymph destroys tho tubercular baceilli. Several authorities confirm the re port of the cure of Dr. Koch's method of a caf-e of lupus ou the face aud arms within five days. The lymph throws off the baccilli by the necrotic process. Inoculation with tho lymph is ineffectual in syphilitic affections. The emperor has summoned Prof. Koch to a personal interview, desiring to learu the details of the results ob tained by consumptives with the treat ment found by the professor. It is stated that the treatment , has been proven efficacious beyond question, A Frankfort telegram to thi Berlin Post savs that tho emperor has made a gift of 1250,000 to Prof. Koch, and has given another $250,000 to endow a national iustituto at which the lymph used in the treatment will be produced.

Chicago In:cr Ocean. The reverses to the republican party are sufficiently numerous and suf ficiently uniform iu character to be assigned a common cause.

The unreflecting will say it was "tho tariff that did li," which will be near the truth, but yet not the truth. It was the delay of the senate iu pass ing the tariff bill that, did it. That is The cause of causes. The law is protective; it has proved itsbif beneficial in the few weeks of its operation ; six . mouths hence it will be so clearly and widely recog niA na licin fkial as to insure republi- c u wlwri'ver and whenever a candidate asks Ihe suffrages of a north ern constituency to prevent ns repeal.

But the volume of trade has Inercttfed since the passage of the hill, and as a consequence ot its pus sage, and it is sure to increase to yet greater proportions, though, as we believe, iis increase is likely to be lim ited to narrow hounds by the clectiou of a democratic majority to congress. The dilatory uclion of tho Bcnate upon the tariff is, we repeat, the chief cause coiiHpliiug to the temporary discomQiure of the republicans. We do not underestimate the solid aoiith. which is a fact rather than a problem In politics. It has been with the democrats ever since 187;, but it never has elected a president for them nor given them a majority in conzress. It never can do these things, ttut it is a fact strong enough to achieve democratic success when a few of the many close republican districts in the north are stampeded or even slightly disturbed. A few changes in a tew northern districts convert a republican into a democratic majority in congress. And such changes have been made at the last election. They are, we repeat, but temporary. Not once or twice, but oftcn, has the republican party suffered worse de feats in oil" vears and avenged them amply in the next presidential cam paign. Who does not remember the time when even Maine forsook the republican parly in an off year ? And who does not remember ihe rush with which she returned to her alleglam e at the next election? There was a timo when the republicans numbered no more than thirtwsix representa tive in coiigren. Hut the tate wpnt republican overwhelmingly at the next election.
