BlaincVnorn- j inatiou would be followed bv heart burnings within the ranks, Arthur's by jealousies and unpleasant criticisms, Edmunds' by sectional dislikes, Lin coln's by distrust, but Sherman "s by one universal acclamation ofjpy and confidence. There is 110 other such a figure in all the range of political pos sibilities as that of the grizzly, gray old warrior who led the bo.rt from Atlanta to the sea. DEMOCRATIC RULING. Judge Martin, the democratic judge of the Topcka district, made a ruling on Saturday, which is a weakcuer if the papers report correctly. He rul ed that any mau who carries a key, and with it gains admission to rooms where whiskey is kept, and violates the law by drinking and putting hi8 money, as payment for drinks in a tin box, or any man who makes keys, "knowing they arc lo be used for this purpose, or puts locks for such keys on doors leading into rooms where liquor is kept, or any man w ho in any way connects himself with a key that un locks doors into rooms where he can get liquor to drink i- just as much a violation of the prohibitory law and just as liable for prosecution as the man who furnishes the liquor to be drank. , It is given out that Mr. Tilden will accept the nomination of his party for the Presidency provided Joseph E. McDonald i given the second place in preference to Thomas A. Ilendrick. Mr. Tilden evidently thinks that a pal sied hand and a sore toe would not niakt. a good combination. He wishes, if authentically made known, will no doubt be respected. There is nothing so potctit with the Democracy as a voice from the tombs. Judge Miller, of tlic Supreme Court of the United State, refused to grant an injunction in the Foster oifee, and Mr. Moore remains count v attorney of Saline county. Thi, will somewhat difehcartcn the saloon meu who are backing Foster. General Grant is -criously atlcclcd physically by tin- trouble of Grant & Ward. A relative . said yesterday that the mental fetraiu ou the general had been so great that he must hereafter be counted an old man. He has been confined to the hou-c for several days. The Emporia city council has passed au ordinance forbid ing anv'cow lo be driven or allowed within ten feet of any sidewalk. The ordinance destroys the herding business, a no herder can keep cow-, from approaching l he trees and Mdewalk. Says a r-cientilic writer: "Five thou ind moleculcb can 'it comfortably on the point of a pin." This ought to be encouraging to the "horizontal bill" and the other microscopic little ones in congress. The AVcshington correspondent of the Burlington JFawkcye aysit is gen erally conceded at the capital that President Arthur will be nominated on the second ballot. A GOOD WORD FOR KANSAS. In his late speech befoie the house Judge Peters in knocking the pin from under Sam Wood took occasion to put in a good word for Kansas, and more particularly for his immediate constituents. When it conies to adver- j tiding, put a Kansas man to combine business with pleasure. Here i what , our congressman said: i "I desire to say that the people of' Kansas Hud something to do besides studying the laws and iho constitu-j tiotis of the states and of the United! States. It would be M range it the! voter of Kansas ;as obliged to ac quaint himself with these laws and the constructionsof the courts to decide which was right and which was wroiig and, if he should decide wrongfully, lose his vote for representative in con gress. The voters of the state of Kansas found time during the lal year lo raise 200,000.000 bushels of corn and 27,C00,000 bushels of wheat. Ay, sir, they found time during the last year toraiso wheat, corn, oat, rye, and flaxseed of the value ot $93, 440,000 $12,000,000 more than the en tire value of the gold and silver pn duct of the United States for the same year. Let my distinguished friend from Color.ulo, who prides himself justly upon representing the gold and silver llocky mountain mining camp, put that under the brim of his som brero. Mcrncrson county, in my district, is now, and has been for t wo years, the banner wheat and broom corn county of tho world, and jet this county in age is not halfway through its "teens." Sir, in the district in which 1 now reside there is a comity named after the lamented General Sedgwick that raised 7.000.000 bush els of corn last year, and only a short time ago loaded up a train of thirty cars with corn and sent them to Cin cinnati as a gift-ollering to relieve the sutforcrs by the Ohio flood. Another county in niy state in the district of my colleague and 1 will charge him nothing for the advertisement -a county named Butler, found time to send "twenty-seven car loads to Cin cinnati as a "gratuitous oflcring to the sufferers by the Ohio flood. The na tion has donated generously out of its plethoric treasury, but these two counties alone have given ten thous and dollars' worth of corn. The neonle of Kansas have sonicthmir else to do, and thev do soinethinjr else, than study up constitutional questions. 1 know it is said, and it jnav be truthfully aid, that K:uia is only the third state in the union in the raising of agricultural products; but vou must bear in mind that Ivan- sasis voting yet.

The Atchison Champion says : "'We i see no special reason for throwing ' mud at the recent meeting- of busi ness men in Xew York favoring the re-nomination of President Arthur.

The warniuff was bended : very them dared come near the Brooklyn Eagle (Dcm.): If Mr. Til den has a favorite candidate he should mention him. Ills preference would be valuable capital for any aspirant to the nomination. Mr. Tilden, however, cannot settle such a matter with a few friends in his back parlor. Let him make known his choice and it will re ceive careful consideration. First of all, let him say distinctly whether he is himself a c .udidatc. It is only by open and above board proceedings, in clear daylight, that the Democrats can hope 10 "succeed.
