FRIDAY MORNING, JUKE 0, 18M.
A Wichita business mau iu Chicago,
ami who is in uo wav connected with
Kansas politicians, wrote the cdilorof
this paper yesterday that he had put
in a whole day moving about from
hendquartcis to headquarters in order
to be able to make up an estimate sat
isfactory to himself. He says: As a
crowd, the Blaine fellows beat the
Arthur fellows for hurrah and enthu
siasm, but that the Arthur people are
working quietly and earnestly in every
conceivable' direction like bees, and
that a large per cent, of Arthur work
ers arc business men and not poli
ticians. But in the event if they both
fail, then it is my opinion that the mau
you fo long ago named will come suc
cessfully to the front. General Sher
man's name whenever aud wherever
mentioned as the dark horse is the
signal for warm and earncst'eommen
datiou that cannot be misunderstood.
Personal favorites once out of the
way, nothing could shut offtho "march
from Atlanta to the Eea," Mr. Sher
man's march from Chicago to the

Lowest current rates.
A DANGEROUS PARTY.
The old greenback party is rapidly
drifting into centralization, and iu f
voi of government monopoly. The
man Jones who is not in favor of But
ler as a candidate, thinks that while
congress shall issue full legal tender
notes, they shall be ued in payment
of government debts, contracts, pub
lic improvements, to reduce transpor
tation charges, completing public
buildings, building a navy, and for
.such other purposes us congress now
is asked to appropriate money, until
the surplus labor of the country is
employed, a profitable home market
for products of American fa rms aud
workshops created, and busines dona
on a cash basis.

xne great pauium; uiouuu oiuu,
which has occupied Jir. Thomas Ilov
enden for the greater part of the last
two or three vears, is completed, and
will be placed on exhibition in New
York next week. It represents old
Osawatomie pausing to kiss a negro
child as hedcscciideu from the steps of
the jail on hia way to the gallows. Un
fortunately this-pretty story is a mere
myth, but that doesn't hurt it, wc sup
pose, tor artistic purposes. Brown
would undoubtedly have kissed a ne
gro child if there had been one pres
ent ana no nau tnougni oi utilizing n
in that tender and significant way.
Tne kissing incident was reported
bv a ncw6pai)cr correspondent at the
time and published; it has been rc- J
pnnicu in uie uiograpmes. ji it i iu
true the journalist who invented it did
a great work in softening the hearts
of Aincricaus toward their black
brothers. But why is an artist paint
ing still another "picture of John
Brown? Hasn't he heard the latest .

. Among recent Mexican cntcrpiises
is the establishment of a line of steam-.
ers for service on the Pacific coasts ol j
Mexico and Central America and for
the Chinese and Japanese trade. Tin? '
port of Tojiolobampo, iu Sinoloa,
Mexico, is two and a half days ucarer ,
in time to China than is San Francis-
co, and Topolobanipo is the terminus nWH
of the railroad which runs through
Mexico from Eagle Pass, Texas. The 1 a- o.v oer "aiii'is' nipr'n iok-
" . ' A, . I Dtorp, Malii.Mivpt, WIiIiIin, Ivansia. lfi-lm
steamship company is to use llue,largc
s teamcrs and accomplish twelve trips"
a year, for which a subsidy of $19,000 ,
11 trip is paid. It is said that the Mex
ican government oilers a premium for
Chincso laborers brought on this line,
so that when operations commence it ,
will be difficult to keep Chinamen
from coming over the border into our ,
country. It is difficult to sec what
Mexico wants with more laborers,
when she has a population of seven or (
eight millions of the laboring class
whoso labor is sold very cheaply. The j
population of Sinaloa, Chihuahua and
Coabuila is smaller than that of the I
the other Mexican states, being about '
-1 1-2 per cent, of f he total. The in- j
troduction of Chinamen, however, '
will be urc to engender race antagonisms.
