There is talk of establishing a branch

IT WILL BE A BIG FAIR.
This is undoubtedly a good year for
a very line stale fair, both for our own
enfertainmont and profit, and as an
advertisement to other- of what we
reallv are aud can do. The facts are
strikiug. while there is more or le-s
a fuiaucial scare in all the states east
of us, we alone seem to be in a situa
tion where, .nothing can hurt us very
seriously. We imagined we had a very
good porn and wheat crop last year,
and we really lrad, and got a good deal
ot money lirst and list for it. It was
nothing to boast of compared with tho
yield of this your. The stock interest

The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Te
road. couiderinfr its interests identi
cal with those of the farming and
stock-growing community, has taken
the initiative in placing; its rate to the
fair at one cent per mile. It is ex
pected that all the principal line will
do the same. It is evident that this is
not done as a speculation, but
rather to a.sit every one to a holiday
at the close of the most fruitful year
in the history of the state, and to di
rcctly aid in the promotion of imhis-triei-

A BAD BUSINESS.
AVe do not envv our friend Al. R.
Greene his job of removing from the
Indian Territory, under the orders of
the Secretary of the Interior, the Ok
lahoma "booiucrs."' One of tho kindest-
heirted of men, tho dispo-sossion
of these people would be to hint a dis
agreeable task, under any circum
stance, and particularly so if thy in
sist on compelling the troops to use
force. The trouble with the.-e people,
i- an old diseac which has prevailed
in this country, time out of mind, and
may be called land mania. The party
alk-cled by it is crazy to get hold of
laud owned or claimed to bo owned by
somebody else. Let it be understood
that a quarter section in the heart ot
the Rockv mountains was withheld
from settlement and a "colony" would
be on the way to il as soon as the new
iild Im circulated. The land in Okla
homa is no better than any amount of
land in Kau-as which can be had tor
nothing, and with a good title. Hut
the "boomers" would leave a pro ed
np claim adjoining the Garden of
Eden, to go to Oklahoma, where noth
ing is certain except that they ill be
put out. In spito of repeated exper
iences of this sort, more 'boomer-"
have entered Oklahoma this time than
ever before. The United State- gov
ernment has sent Gen. Hatch and a
strong foice of troops to expel tho. n ;
and an agent of the interior depart
ment goes nlonir as a civil representa
tive. All this costs money and trou
ble: and the "boomers" will lose what
ever they have invested. They had
nothing el-e to expect, lli-a pity a
di-piito cannot arise as to the title ol
the north pole, and the government i
sue a proclamation warning squatters
from encroaching on it. A "colony"
from Kansas yould solve the frozen
ecret of the North inside of six
months. Atchison Champion.

PLUMB ON POLITICS.
Hon. P.-IJ. Plumb, United States
senator from Kansas, arrived in this 1
city via the Missouri Pacific at 7:30 (
o'clock last evening, returning home
from Washington. "After the adjourn- !
ment of congrcs-, the senator, being
chairman of the committee 011 expen
ditures, was detained in Washington
several weeks finishing certain investi
gations commenced before the session
closed and arranging matters for the
next session. Alter completing this
work he made a several week's;" visit
to Norih Carolina, and is now return
ing to his home in Emporia for the first
time since congress convened last De
cember. He looks unusually well aud
hcarly, and expresses himself as feel
ing entirely in accordance with hi ap
pearance. A Journal reporter met Senator
Plumb on the depot platform imme
diately upon his arrival and inter
viewed him briflv upon the political
"The prospects could not well be
more flattering for Republican success
than at present," said he in response
to an inquiry. "The campaign has
hardly opened yet, but in my judg
ment the emditious arc much 'more
favorable for the Republicans now
than they were at the same period in
cither ot the last three presidential
campaigns, and if their chances con
tinue to improve, as tho campaign pro
gresses as they have during all previ
ous campaigns it is almost safe to say
that Cleveland will not carry a single
northern state. In fact, it don't look
now as though he will get the solid
South, much less anything in the
"Is this liaitering condition due to
the superiority of the Republican can
didates or superiority of parly organ
ization?" "To both as well as to the demoral
ized aud disorganized condition of the
Democracy. Tlicyare fighting among
themselves all aloiig the line, and es
pecially in states which they must
carry in order to be successful. Their
platform is bad, their candidates
worse, and their party organization
in the doubtful states "so weak that
they had just as well throw up the
sponge, for they cannot hope to carry
even the strength that they did in
1830. Maine is bound to carry New
Yoik, Indiana. California and Ohio,
anil, as I mid before, if the campaign
c mtiiiues as it has opened, he will
carry every northern state."
"Was there any political -iguilicance
in your trip to North Carolina ?"
'Nothing Of the sort. The trip was
purely one of pleasuic and sight see
ing. I went upon the invitation ot
Washington friends who reside in
that state aud had a very plea-ant
"What do you think of the politicil
situation iu Kansas?"
'1 know very little ot the condition
of allairs in my own state, having
been away tor so long. I shall be ter
ribly surprised, however, if Col. Mar
tin docs not icdcem the state from
Heurbouisui by the old-fashioned forty
or lit'iy thousand majority."
"What figure will St. "John's presi
dential race cut in the campaign?''
"None at all, either in Kansas or
any other state. The prohibition vote
will not be as large this year in any of
the states a it was two years ago. A
leading Indiana nolitician told me the
other day that there would not be to
exceed 1,000 prohibition votes polled
in the state this year, aud iu Ohio,
where the temperanc: people have al
ways pollel from 10,00'i to 18,000
votes, it i- almost cerl-ii:i tint the to
tal vote ci-t f.ir the prohibition ticket
will not xceed 3,000."
Senator Plumb left via the Siuta
