Murdock hag been engaged in publishing the "Weekly Eagle in that city "from the time whereof the memory of the oldest inhabitant runneth not to the contrary," and always made a good paper. lie is to be congratulated upon the good fortune which has tnabled him to embark in an enterprise of such magnitude as the publication of so large a morning paper as tic Daily Eaglk. Its adertising columns show a very liberal patronage on the part or t he business men of thatprosperous city. They evidently appreciate the advantages of having such a daily through which to boom their business and extend their trade. The Eagle is neatly printed and excellent in its general make-up, and, ovcrandaboe all, it idUed with that marked ability which has at all times, characterised Col. Murdock's journalistic career. We wish tbc Eagle and the flourishing city in which it is published that continued pros perity which both desene, and express the hope that the anticipations of each may be fully realized. Emporia liepullican. Wichita's Daily Eagle Is upon our ta ble, as pretty a daily as ever was printed. It is an eight column folio, chuck full of news and advertising.

We hae received a copy of the Wichita Daily Eagle, Vol I No., M. 31. Alurdock cditor, and U. 1'. Murdock business mana ger. To those who know the Murdock boj s it is unnecessary to say that this paper is fully tip to the standard ot the weekly paper issued by them, and in saving that we simply state that it is the prettiest daily in the state. We predict for it a bril liant future, and hope it will pay from No. Larned Vironosccpe. SPLENDID REPRESENTATIVE. The Wichita Daily Eagle made its first appearance last Monday morning.

The secretary of the navy has decided to allow Dclamott & Co." to withdraw i heir offer for the purchase of the U. S. steamer Colorado, which had recent ly been accepted by the department.

Peasy of llatavia, Ohio, from practice as pension attor ney before the department. TROUBLE IN LOUISIANA. 1Ntcw Orleans, May 21. Todav the Adjutant-General ordered a battallion of the Washington artillery and a bat tallion of the Louisiana field artillery to hold themselves in readiness to move at a moment's notice, to the scene of trouble at New Iberia. There is considerable excitement in Xew Ibcria growing out of contest for Judgeship in the twenty-first judicial district, between Gates, claiming to have been elected, and Fontellin, pres ent incumbent. This is one of the cases refet red to in resolution about by Republican state central committee last week. The senate committee, considering the pctiiton and memorial of Gales reported in favor of impeach ing Fontillin who is a Republican. Gates after much delay and marshal ing of vote's was declared elected at the recent election. As showing how this result was brought about, Fontil lin claims one precinct known as Bayou Pugeon at the dale of the re cent election was overflowed, and the election olliccrs made no provision for an election there as no voting had been done at that point. Fifteen or tv enly voters, residiug in that section, having heretofore voted elsewhere. The Times-Democrat's Xew Iberia special says : It seems that reports covering the political situation in St Martin's parish is very much exagger ated. So far there has been no dis turbances except a few weeks ago. when a crowd of hoodlums composed of Fontillin's backers paraded the streets at night, firing cannon and pistols, and making threats that they would spill the last drop their blood in seating Fontillin. The past two weeks have been quiet, but all sorts of rumors are afloat to the cflect that Fontillin has organized negroes to de fend him, and help rcit the seating of Gates. Rumors have run highjor the past few days, the cause of which is supposed to be the forming of the militia company. These rumors do great damage to the business of Xew leberia. The country people are afraid to come to town they think the war is going on among us. LOUISIAN7iFu"BLICANS. SU3. l,,alU,n ffi j" J?'",0,",, T(.

LAND GRANT FORFEITURES, Washington, May 24 The senate committee on public lands to-day de- cided to report buis forfeiting land ! .grants opposite tl.c uncompleted por- I tions of the Northern Pacific mam 'and branch .lines and 'he Atlantic & I Pacific railroads. Senator Plumb, clmirminof the committee, says it is impossible to calculate the number of acres involved, as in both cases some of the laud was taken up before the charters were granted, and in the ease of the Atlantic & Pacific the road was not constructed iu the direct line con templated. Nominally the Senator thinks that the forfeitures of the Pa cific will amount to about 13,000,000 acres, and of the Atlantic & Pacific to about S6,000,000 acres. Senator Slater, who is author of the hill providing for the forfeiture of the land grants on the Northern; Pacific railroad, savs the actual number of ccrcs forfeited along that line will be about 7,500,000 acres, which is about 30,000,000 acres lew than is proposed by the house committee on public lands. Senator Slater's Jbill further provides that in lieu of lauds hereafter selected, if occupied bv bona fide set tlers, they slnll be sold for $1.25 per acre for 160 acres. A PROMISED DUEL. Atlanta.

The demand completely non plused the genial aulhur. aud the irit j father took his hesitation as an evidence of guilt. Hastily throwing his hand back to the hip pocket, he was gra-ped In Col.
