BJSkVIi'a' w. -v iLanie. c M. M. MURDOCH, Editor. WEDNESDAY M0RN1XG, JUNE 4, 1894. THE GREAT CONTEST. "Emporia News : Cau anybody tell us why the democratic papers are all so anxious to beat Col. Martin a the republican candidate for Governor, and they manifest such interest in the success of Judge Thacher? The Eagle's bulletin board was surrounded by a large crowd of ex pectant; not to say anxious citizens yesterday afternoon, patiently await ing the latest bulletins from the con vention hall at Chicago. Xot a single word was received until three o'clock, aud that indefinite. But a little after four the result of the temporary or ganization was received. Koran hour the figures, the name and the possible results to which the action pointed were earnestly canvassed. The ma jority of these citizens seemed for Blaine, aud emphatically so, many de claring that should any other be nom inated they would not care for the re sult next November. There were others hoped it meant Arthur. Here aud there and now and then an old soldier would express the hope that the convention would eschew all poli ticians, aud finally nominate old Tc cumsch Sherman. I The last prayer wo responded to with a hearty amen. CHENEY. According to the trustee's returns for the two years named, on March 1, 1883, Morton township had a popula tion of '289, and at the same time in 188' the population was 544, showing an increase of 255, tjic largest gain with but one exception Wichita town shipin the county. Grand River's report shows 302 in 1883 and 274 in 1884, a loss of 28, probabably on ac count of the removal of Marshall Garden Plain's population is 602, a gain of 136. Eric in 1883 had 184, but in 1884 is not mentioned in the data. Alton has 395, a gain of 85. Cheney did not begin to grow until about March 1. Making allowance for the increase since that time, and lor the population of the township ouUide of the city, the number of inhabitants on this mile square may be safely said to be 500. Journal.

W. Levy. The picture is not a very enticing one : ' Tacoma, W. T., May 26, 1884. ' M. W. Lcry. Dear Sir: I have been scouting over this country a con-' sidcrable, but as yet have found noth ing to suit us, so far as present busi ncss or future prosperity are concern ed, :t the Arkansas valley. ' The area of fanning land here is very limited, the principal crops being hops and vegetables. The Puyallup valley is the chief agricultural section ' tributary to Tacoma. and the farmi are made up of small openings or ! clearings along the narrow valley, sur-1 rounded and separated by immense forests. One cannot buy a cleared farm there for less than ji'JOO per acre, j and one covered with natural forest ! growth of stumps, from three to fifteen foet in diameter, is held at $100 per . acre. These juices are conclusive evi-1 deuce that the anra of farming land is ; not extensive. The lands are, how- ' ever, very productive and raise 1.700 ' pounds of hops to the acre. Nearly i all kinds of fruit but peaches llourish. i Dwelling lots in Tacoma on an un-1 graded street, three-fourths of a mile from the poslofiice, jwenty-five feet front covered with stumps, arc held at, from S.'SOO to $1,200. 1 think they ! - have discounted the future by about live or ten years. "We have just rc retumed fiom a trip down the sound! to Victoria, B. C, and find the same I thing at nearly every point. ; ""Tacoma considers herself the ter minus of the X. J'. ILK. Seattle hopes to be in the near future for reasons , satisfactory to herself, and the minor points are amusing llicm-elves with j the hope that something may turn up to their benefit. It i undoubtedly ' the intention of the p re-en t manage ment of the X. I. to make their per-, inanent terminus here, but we all ' know that railroad managements Fitters. (i;is Fixtures.
