a' ",:,C1' "r - r M. M. MURDOCH, Editor. TUESDAY MOKN1XG, JUNE 3, 1SS4 THE PRESIDENTIAL CHANCES. The rasin who is to carry the Repub lican U&niicr to victory will bo named at Chicago to-day or to-morrow in all human probability. The electoral col lege will be composed of 401 member'; and therefore 201 of ihein will be necessary to eleci. The Republican convention to-day will attempt to de cide in its best judgment what candi date can most certainly gcciirc that 201 vote. The leading men aiiLe of both parlies dread a repetition of the count of 1876 when no one could tell absolutely what the hoiuM result in certain fetatcs wafe. From the Kansas City Journal we take the following tables and estimate' which arc not only fair, but we be lieve correct. Thuce estimates show conclusively that if no mistake fcmadc to-day.in Chicago, there ought to be no question as to the result : In counting upon the electoral vote, there arc certain States which can be "calculated upou as surely republican. They arc the following with the num ber of electors to which each is en titled: Colorado .... Connetciuit Illinois . Iowa Kansas . Maine 51aascliutti Michigan... . ?eliraLa. . . .1 Sew Ilamjislilrc. . I Orpj-oii 1 1'ennfjhmila . 30 IMioilr Islaml 1 Vermont ... 1 Wli-oonsln 11 u '.I , (' 14 l.t Minnesota.... Total, 10 SUite V,t Thc following arc the states regarded as surely demon atio. with the number of delegates to which each is entitled : ' Alabama Arkansas . Delaware . .; Florida Georgia . . Kentucky IHllrlHlKl. Maryland... . MNiiM;I)ji As a matter 10 Ml -Mill 1 1 .... Noitli Carollni . South Carolina.. Icnneoeef 'I eb Virginia . . Weet irglnia . Total, ir, States 13 of fjet, in concedinsr the vote above to the democratic pai ty it can be said that if a free election were possible in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina, their thirty electoral votes would be cast for tiic republican candidate. But as that is not to be expected, they are rated as democratic. The calculation above make, the contest between the parties nearly even, and the success of either parly is depeudent upon the vote of the doubt ful states, which wc clarify as follow with the number of elector to which each is entitled : California .. . s New Vir!. Indiana . . .11 Oliio Nevada ,. . .3 New Jersey J lota!, OMate, 'H Now, what arc the chances? Ohio has always been a republican 'state in presidential years, and there i no reason to admit any grae uppichen siou about the safely of the state this year. The vote oi' Ohio and Xev York, .W, added to the vote of the certain republican states, would elect the republican candidate by 2111 votes, a number siiflicient to suppress con ic or suspicion. I'm if Tilden be nominated, and New York be conced ed so doubtful as not to enter into the above calculation of success, what then? The republicans carried Indiana at the last presidential election, and with the vote of Ohio and of California and Nevada, lost the i.-tst time only by the Aforey forgery, and when too late to deny it, the republican candidate would receive 203 electoral vote, enough to elect him without Now York. It must be remembered, too thav the course of the demouatie parly in congress on the larill" (jues tioil ha-.ben such as to largely tiiien atevXew Jersey, and that in all calcu lations the nine otos ol that state can be reasonably reckoned as republican. Now, nine-Votes with Ohio's twenty-three and Indiana's fifteen would give the lcpublican candidate the ic quircd 201 votes to elect him without California or Nevada. In oilier words, the election ot the republican candidate for president is reasonably sure without the vote of New York, but as (he certainty of the election of the icpublican ticket, when named, is what is desired, it is to be hoped that the Chicago convention will carefully regard all I he elements i of availability, and name a candidate whose candidacy will not only astne theelectoial vote of the republican' slate, but tha vote of all the -tales it ha betoinu custonnin to class as ( doubtful. Lotus haw a candidate who will i make tho election virtuallv unanimous, i at least in that section of the country where a vote ran lie polled without , fear of intimidation and with the cit taintv of its being counted as cast. FOR SECRETARY OF STATE. The Kingman Vitizcn-Bepuhlican, in rcproduciug an article from the Ea :i.i: on the peculiar titne-s of Dr. E. , 1L Allen for Secretary of St itc. add s tho following comment-, which will be read with interest : Dr. E. It. Allen is rccchiny flatter ing press notice- -from every portion of the state, and will go to the con vention with a strong following. Tho entire -outhwest should heartily sup port Sedgwick's candidate. The re publicans of this section of Kans.i can, by a united effort, secure a repre sentation on the state ticket, and with the influence we wield in thetate and nation, the claims of the great "-outh-west'should not-be ignored. There are other candidates for this office, and we arc sorry to say one of them hails from the southwest. After a careful survey of the field, however, and an expression of the people in regard to their preferencs for the otlicc, we can didly believe the gentleman lrom Bar ber will not enter the race. George Orncr is a good man, fullj capable to fill any office in the gift of the people, but just at this time a de feat would be disastrous to hi:n. Georgo is a new mau in Kansas, but even during a brief sojourn has been highly honored by the people of the state, lie to-day holds a lucrative gov ernment ollicc. is tho representative of his county in the legislature, and cau easily be elected to the state sen ate this fall. The ability of George Orncr is recognized and acknowledged by all, and he would make a grand and gbod olliecr. But the time has not vet arrived, and Mr. Orncr has ample time to ask for honors at the hands of Kansaus. Dr. Allen has the advantage in many particulars, and for another candidate to press his claims for the aine otlicc will end in defeat. George, bide your time and the state will requro your service, and you nor the people can aflord defeat.

Among the many fine orations de livered last Friday in this State and published, wc have noticed none, in beautiful sentiment and sotd stirring patriotism, surpassing that delivered by Hon. Win. Thompsou at IJnr liugame, under the auspices of E. P. Sheldon Post No. So, G. A. It. 3Ir. Thompson wi'l be heard from out in Kansas. ' In the Current of June 7 (Xo. 2.5), will appear a paper of national interest entitled ''The Anti-Presidential Lin coln," in which the writer, an ex joumalist of repute, ably argues that all existing biographies of Abraham Lincoln do him injustice; in that he is made to appear as great chiefly through political accident rather than inherently great, and, at last the pos sessor of a just fame that he ' had for a generation been slowly, deliberately, studiously, earnestly building." The Methodist Episcopal general conference, in session at Philadelphia, has adopted a report which takes sub stantially the ground occupied by the Catholic church on the subject of di vorce, making adultery the only ground for granting it, and from pro hibiting the ministry from remarrying the guilt part . The democratic organs seem to at- tribute the late speculators' panic in i New Yoik to "republican financial ! management.' There may be some ' remote connection, but the majority of obcrcrs tiaco it to human ra-cali- tv and greed. THE EAGLE AND WICHITA. , The Wichita Ea'.li: now comes to i hand as a handsome daily. It is per I feet in style and Miapc, and truly me tropolitan in all its departments. The lirst thing we heard of in connection , with Wichita was the Eaglk. In piomptly meeting the necessities (which we hope is leal) for a daily, the old bird docs it in a style indicating some business as well as glory. We hope the returns will be commensurate 1 to the work Junction City Union. IF IT DON'T. The Wichita Eagi,i: his just com menced the publication of a morning daily. The first number came out oil Tucsdav last. It contains the full as sociated pre-s di-patches, is well filled w ith healthy looking advertising, and i- a- handsome as handsome can he. Wichita ought to bo able to suport a good daily, and if it don't stand by the Eagji: it will de-crvo to loe its grip. Girurd I'rcss. NEW JUDICIAL DISTRICT.

BY TELEGRAPH. A repio-cnlalhe of the Wichita Daily Eagli: has been canvassing tlie towns- in the eastern part of this county in the interest of that journal this week. 1 lo is probably in this city by this time, calling the attention of the eitictis to that paper. There are several reasons why a good patronage should be extended to the Eaglk. It i- print!! -o near here that it might almost be (ailed a home institution ; containing the associated press dis patcher, it i- freighted with tho cry latest new - and it reaches this city twenty-four nour- in advance of any other daily of similar dale ; its market reports are alwas carefully correct cd and its editorial management discloses an ability that is not excelled by far more pretention- metropolitan publi cations. The Daily Eagij: deserves to be a fa orile in Kingman and other Invns in -oiillicrn Kan-a-. Kingman Courier. TILDEN A SUPERSTITION. A -pecial tlNpateli lo the lloslon fcrald, dated Vahinulon.

Now can you tell me who the Democrats arc jroinjj to nominate?" "Ye, sir. Tilden and Hendricks.' 'Oh.mv.no. "Why. that i prepos terous. "Whv, that " would jjivc u a walkover. To nominatcTilden would ' be equivalent lo noininatin a super stition. 1 don't believe he is liviiur." "1'robably, -enator. the wish" is father to the thought.
