It is the fashion just now, especially with cheap demagogues, to Bet up a howl against Mr. Jay Gould. The fact that he is employing all his princely income in keeping furnaces glowing and rolling mills going in manufacturing rails; iu employing men to dig the ores and coals; in chopping the tics, iu building the bridges, and in grading the road beds, all ramnify ins and giving life to thousands of in dustries and giving employment to hundreds of thousands of men, counts for nothing so long as there is a chance to make'eheap capital by playing upon the predjudices of a class. Did Jay Gould tie up his capital as did the As tors, or sink it into registered bonds as a miser, there might be some ex cuse. But being an Amcricau and a believer in the genius of our institu tions, and glorifying in personal cuter prise, be delights iu employing his capital to the fullest extent. But a few months ago he remarked that nothing adorded him so much real pleasure as iu marking the'developcmcnt ot the country, the growth of 'he towns and the property of the people along his western lines of railway. Xo doubt he has often squeezed Wall street, but what is Wall street if not a cage of sharks and speculators, a curse, rather than a blessing, to any and all American in dustries. Gould has what he cats and wears; all else that he possesses is ex pended in industries which call for labor, and which employ men. If he squeezes Wall Etreetfor million to-day, the. contract is let for another hundred miles of road to-morrow, the buildiug of which affords wages and opportu nities to thousands. As for the gen erosity of the man, wc quote a late interview with Jerome Hill, who says: I heard some one talking, the other about a generous gift of $5,000, iu a case where there wa9 public suffering. It was spoken of as a very handsome thing, and it was; but do you know the most btriking instance of that kind of generosity? It was at Mem phis, in '78, when "the yellow fever was eo bad. I was there through the early part of it, the only representative of our houses, but finally left at the earnest solicitation of my brother, who said for me to go any place, to Europe, or east or west, but to leave Memphis. Ever, body who was abk to leave did so. The city was de serted, except by ihc poorer, wlio could tot go, and who were at tucked K the fever liy dozens on all sidi . There w:is no bu-.ine-s, there was nothing in the ci'y lo li-'en the alarm ing IcaluriM of the cmergeury. Ap peal after appeal had been sent out to the country for aid, and response after response had come in, bin the lever had hung on. and had attacked so many and proved so cost ly iu its treatment and the funds and contributions had rapidly disappeared and further appeals seemed in vain. Whole families were down. Failieis were being carrid out of one room while children and mothers were dy ing iu the next. It was an awful mo ment. Whatever was done had to be done quickly. The Howard Associa tion, which was in charge of nflair, was powerless to continue its noble work, and was brought face to face with the necessity of throwing down i Is .inns, .lust at that momenta mes sage came over the wires from a man who is more cursed than any other man, m the country sayiiig, "Draw on me at sight for $10,000, and draw on me daily for whatever the Howard As sociation may nped until the fever epi demic is under control." That. I be lieve, was the most generous donation ever made absolutely without limit. It was signed by Jay Gould. I am no special adherent or defender of that gentleman, but I tell you that was a noble action, which should not bo for gotten as it is. At that time he had no interests whatever in that section or within many miles of it. DOWN IN HAKPER. The editor of the Eaoi.i: has re ceived a number of letters from peo ple living iu Harper county and iu the southwestern portion of this county, making enquiries as to whether the Chicago, Hock Island and Pacific peo ple were backing the Wichita, Harper and Kiowa railroad scheme, petitions for which have been in circulation. It has been but a few days since the Eaoi.k in response to such a call stated emphatically that tho Chicago & Kock Islaud kucw nothing of the Wichita, Harper and Kiowa company anil had in no manner authorized its organiza tion or its directory to submit propo sitions in Harper county or elsewhere; that the Chicago and Kock Islaud road wsb going south from Wichita and cast of Harper county. Having since learned thai the editorial alluded to had been critiecd by parties iu interest wc asked Mr. M. A. Lowe, the gen eral manager of tho Kansas extensions of the Kock" Island, on Monday if he or his-company had authorized any such movement as is now being made in Harper county in the name of his company. He said that they had not; and not only that but further that his people had no idea of antagonizing or in any manner interfering with the C. Wood l)avi road, the line of which runs from Wichita southwest through Harper. Wo will only add the word that the Eaoi.i: is uot interested in any way in this controversy further than tho interests of Wichita are con cerned, Wichita wants a roid to Har per and so does the Eaoi.k, nnd onr only fear is that through these threat ened complications we might loso a sure thing, tho construction of the Chicago, St. Joseph and Fort Worth road. STAFFORD COUNTY REPUB LICAN. The new paper of Stafford, by Blair & Innian, lies on our table, a seven column quarto printed on new type and as bright as a dollar. R. M. lliair and Hccry lumau arc. anuounccd as the writers with still an additional as sociate in the person of J. A. Stubbs. If the Stafford Kcpublican is not one of the livest and ablest papers in Kan sas it will not be for thejack of edito rial ability and experience. The paper would be a credit to a town of twenty thousand people, one-half capitalists and the other half college graduates. Stafford i going to make a live little city, but her new paper is in over particular equal to the occasion. During a conversation with a news paper reporter, Rct. Sam. Small said : "I am a prohibitionist out and out, but I am a Georgia prohibitionist. In Georgia, you know, prohibition anil politics aro widely divorced. St. Job-atem don't go. I worked hard for and wc carried the day, but the vic tory was due to the efforts of republi cans and democrats alike. There is no St. Johuism in Georgia, and God grant, there never will be. State Journal. SHE IS PECULIAR. Moro than once yesterday we heard "Wichita is a big town." Just how large Wichita is caunot be seen at a glance, and the '-large" means, by the speaker, the number of houses. If these gcntlemeu could take time to visit the dillercnt branches of trade go into the wholesale houses, visit the manufacturing establishments, see the real estate boom, they would become convinced that Wichita is larjrcr than they have an y idea. It is impossible for one man and all the force he can employ to keep track of the "go" Wichita possesses. More laud chauges hand iu a day than in the combined cities around Wichita put together. Last week $20,000 was refused for twenty feet front on Doug las avenue. As each Monday rolls around, the price of property ad vances, and prospective buyers of the week before kick themselves for not buying, as the delay iu price is a mat ter of many dollars". The merchants arc substantial busi ness men, aud allow no shelf to be come empty keep everthing in their line, aud don't ask the earth in pay. In short, Wichita is the Garden of Eden of Kansas, aud she plajs with, out a limit. Resident. THE TWO PLANS. The president aud Jay Gould have each a plan for dealing with strikes. Mr. Gould has gone less into detail in describing his plan than the president has done, but its main features are clearly perceptible through tho thin disguise of words iu which they are clothed. The president' plan includes the creation of a permanent national board of arbitration, to bo connected with the present bureau of labor es tablished bv act of congress two years ago. His notion is that methods of arbitration may be better enforced by a permanent board than by special boards appointed in times of strikes aud during periods of excitement to act in particular cases. Jay Gould's plan includes not only a method of arbitration, but a provis ion that men shall not quit work. He proposes to abolish strikes uy law, but to provide that the differences betweeu employers aud employes, out of which disturbances might arise, shall be ad justed through the interposition of ar bitrators appointed by law. Neither the president no Mr. Gould supports auy scheme of compulsory arbitration. Such a scheme would be impracticable, for it is not rcasouablc to attempt to force men to work for a particular employer, or when they uo uot want to work, nor would it be possible if it were reasonable. But that the decision of a legally estab lished permanent board ot arbitration, whether state or natioi.al, would h iv: great moral force, and would be sus tained by public opinion, which is higher than the constitution or the laws iu ihis country, is probable. Commonwealth. FIRST QUARTERLY MEETING AT DlCHTON A $3,000 Church to be Built. Rev. A. P. George, presiding elder of the Garden City district: M. h. church, braved all reports and arrived here April 14th, aud preached the same evening iu the school house cju Thursday morning, April loth, he preached at the s-ime place. He held quarterly conference in the afternoon audpiea. bed at tho Rankin house in the evening aud administered the Lord's Supper. After which Arthur A. Curnic presented the claim of the e.dcr'sexpensc-.andiii a few moments the amount $1.0 was raised. The trustees elected are as follows: Arthur A. Crane, Thomas Hunt, .John W. Orr. Henry C. Smeltser. William Barnard, .lohn F. Andrews and Wil liam II. Lee. This board organized Friday evening by electing Arthur A. CurmV. president; William II. Je, secretary; John F. Andrews, treasurer. These officers havotialified according to law ami me article oi association have been forwarded to the secretary state. The trustees expect o begin taking the subscriptions at an early day and nopo-soon to have Ihc church under way. It n to be erected on the northeast corner of court house square. The following arc the officers of the church: Rev. Frank II. Paris, pastor; Geo If. Wititou. secretary; board ot stewards Rev. L. Itishoi), W. It. Mil- bv, John W. Orr, Charles Lee; J. P. Anderson, class leader; W. II. Lee, superintendent of Suuday school. The original clas was organized bv llov. Sibley, July 12, 1885, who had charge until the prcseut pastor was appointed by the coulercnce which met at McPhcrson March 11th. The number of members at this time wa thirteen. The prcseut member ship is forty. The organization is in complete working order, and good results arc expected. We need churches in our growing city, and have no doubt our people will subfenbe liberally to tins enter prise, which is uecese'ary to the con tinued growth and prosperity of Diglilon. Dighton Journal. LABOR AND CAPITAL. Labor is not lesj but more tyranical even against those of its own brother hood than capital ha ever been: for it has decided that all who do not unite with it as parts of u great organiza tion or machine shall not be permit ted by it to work, to cam wages, to support themselves, their wives, their children. It demands that all work iugnien, however intelligent, indus trious, frugal or independent tliev may be, shall, under penalty of bciug deprived or their natural right to earn their bread, be forced to sacrifice their individual freedom aud independence by joiuiug the union of labor; that thc shall, agniiist their own wishes or interest, stop work aud wage-earning by command of a single engiucer of this great human machine; that II working themselves they shnll, by the same command, give ptrt ot their earnings to support those who arc idle, aud that they shall, refuse to be hound by their owii intelligent conviction of duty and be ditecu-d by the same machine intelli gence of tfie lack of it. What i the lestiltof all this organization, of all this destruction of the manly inde pendence of the individual working man of America the merging of all his better parts and the surrender of his opinions to the controlling power ot blind organization? If it were possible for labor to do without capital, for tho employo to do without his employer, thero might be some reason in this great and angry eoutcst. But as labor can no more do without capital than capital can do without it. Labor should be quick to sec that it is now pursuing a course of conduct which eventually must injure it. Indeed, any temporary triumph which it now wins bring it only nearer to the in cvitable, eventual defeat. If capital can do no better it can at least retire from the lieldj and in doing so it can carrv with it its fortune and live upon it. Either it must do that or it must do what labor has taught it to do or ganize. Even then, if it should lose iu the coercive game that is being played against it.it could still retire with all its stores. At tho pres ent time capital avoids enter prise, business is paralvzed, trades stand still, the mercantile spirit is depressed. Xo employer of men can be certain of tho future; he cannot even take a profitable order, lest it be made the signal for a strike that may ruin him. He is like thofe within the temple when blind Samson without tagged at the pillars. oucn a state oi ieeiing between Capital asd labor is saaatsrsl mad end soon If it is not to prove the ruin of both. If labor organizations were as wise as the individual workingman generally is, it would come to an end, and labor wool! find that force is the worst and most unreliable weapon in its armory. El Dorado Republican. THE BRAVEST BATTLE. The bravest battle that ever was fought! Shall I tell you where and when! On the map of tho world you will find it not; Twas fought by the mothers of men, Kay, not with cannon, or battle-shot, IVita sword, or nobler pen; Kay, not with eloquent word, or thought, From mouths ot wonderful men. Bnt deep in a walled-np woman's heart Of woman that would not yield, Bat bravely, silently bore her part Lo! there is that battlo-fleld! No marshaling troop, no bivouac song; No banner to gleam and wave! Bat, oh! these battles they last so long From babyhood to tho grave! Joaquin Miller. A COMMUNITY OF BASKET-MAKERS. ltmte Ilonies la the Mountain Poverty In a Wretched llorel Intermarriage. Tho road up the mountains has come to an end in a tangled wildwooi. Here, half hidden by treej and rocks, is a roughly built log cabin. It has one door hung at an opening too low for a man to enter with out stooping. The roof is partly shingloJ, partly covered with a rude thatch, and is so buried in earth and snow that the whole thing appears to bo a portion of nature's handiwork. It seems mossgrown and an cient enough to have been built when the precipitous rocks about it came into exist ence. The chimney is built of rough stones cemented in clay: The door does not swing on hinges, for it never hod any; it is lifted bodily from its place, as it ha3 been daily for perhaps fifty years past The room looks like a cave, for one small opening with four panes lets in but little light A wan and haggard woman sits on tho floor. Ilcr dress is torn and insufficient to cover her form, as glimpses of cuticle sadly show us. She is surrounded by an assort ment of childpen, ragged, unwashed, un Lcmpt The woman docs not rise when we sw her poor garments wo can excuso her and scarcely looks at us; she is at work weaving baskets. One or two of tho older children are helping her. Everything in the room betokens abject poverty. A broken stove into which a small boy is constantly pushing pieces of wood is nearly red-hot On tho apolo3y for a chair tho visitor scarcely trusts himself So sit A heap of rags in one corner is supposed to be tho bed. This wretched hovel is one of many similar houses n herein dwell and suffer tho poor basket-makers of Itockland county. Tho ancestors of some of tbeto people are known to havo como from Long island in the last century. Some aro descendants of persons who for safety betook themselves to the mountains during the Revolutionary war. Tho number of families was originally small, and through .marriage and inter marnago in tho soccnl generation, nearly all became related. They did not always troublo themselves in their isolation with tho forms of matrimony, and it became difficult sometimes to determine tho degrees of consanguinity of young persons who sought to be united for hotter or worst-; Lenco the union was very often, for the o:rpring, tho latter. The moans of support for human life in this region aro Lut mojger. Tho men have found employment in cutting wood, aud somo of them havo worked in the iron nnd nickel mines, or at burning charcoal At present nil tueso laborsaro at a stand. Their only resources at uresent ar3 tho picking of hemes in tho summer and the making of Laskets. Cor. New York Tribune. The Mornlug I.iprr of tilts Future. What an elegant and valuable product of human endeavor a morning paper will bo n h-n at length it is nb!e to confine itself t3 its roper task of giving the morning news with comments simply elucidating, freo from 1-arty bias and business complication!

During tho lato war I fave-1 ono or two aiers each day, and all their extras, in tending to pixservo them. Koldol once, they made a pile ten feet high. Tho tak of assorting and binding this mountain mass was fearful to contemplate, and it remains to tbii day unaccomplished. Tho oucntial journalism, even of that stirring period, could have been of managcablo extent and precious to the lastest jostcrity. James Parton in Tho Forum. WUilnm Devouring Ht-r Own Children. Of late years it has struck mo with con stantly increasing force that those who have toiled for tin advancement ot science are in a fair way of being overwhelmed by the realization of their w ishes. It has become impcs-iblo for any man to keep pace with tho progress of tho wholo of any important branch of s-ienco. If ho wcro to attempt to do so his mental faculties would be crashed by the multitudes of journals nnd of voluminous monographs which a too fertile press casts upon him. This was not tho cose in my young days. A diligent reader might then keep fairly informed of all that was going on without robbing himself of leisure for original work and without demoralizing his faculties by the accumulation of unas similated information. It looks as if tho scientific, liko other revolutions, meant to dovour Its own chil dren; as if tho growth of science tended to overwhelm its votaries; as if the man ot science of the f uturo were condemned to diminish into i narrower and narrower specialist, as time gtws on. I am happy to say that I do not think any such catas tro, he a necessary con'Ofmcnco of tho growth of scienco: but I do think it is a tendency to ls feared, and an evil to bo mot carefully provided against Professor Huxley in Nature. Omnltoron Appetite of Hone. A New York papor speaks ot tho omnivor ous apetito of horses, quoting David lion ner as Myinj; that Startle would cat a leof Miiidnichout of his groom's band.
