I'HE WICHITA DAILY EAGLE: WICtifrA, KANSAS, FRIDAY MORNING. JUNE 25, 1S86.

FRIDAY MORNING. JUNE 25.
The Democratic congressional con
vention for this district meets on July
13th at Larned. The Sumner county
delegation will present the name of
Thomas George, of Wellington, as a
candidate. Mr. George is a lawyer,
and would carry the full party vote.

The annual catalogue of Baker uni
versity, situated at Baldwin, Ivan , has
come to our table. This institution is
under the auspices of thcM. E. church.
It enrolled the past year 429 students
from fifty-two dificrcnt counties in
Kansas. It has both preparatory and
rnllpiriatcdcnartments. Good facil
ities for the study of music, art and
penmanship. All expenses very rea
sonable, for catalogue address Baker
university, Baldwin, Kan.
A handsomely printed paper conies
to our table named Kauopolis Journal.
II starts out well. We notice it has
three articles in iU first editorial col

editor. Tne Eagle wishes the Jour

Eagle is engaged at the present time
in buildiDg a road the "Kansas Mid

of Kauopolis, and by the time the
Journal starts in on its second volume
its editor may have the pleasure of
reading the morning Eagle via the

With all the studied, laborious ef
forts of labor assemblies, legislatures
and congresses to t-olvc the labor prob

will not cease. Hardly had the inter
ruption to railroad traffic through and
from Chicago resulting from the
strikes of railroad operatives six weeks
ago been straightened out aud ad

the i-anic quarter, hicl-, the telegraph
informs us, bids fair to become more

There is something radically wrong
somewhere; what it is and where it is

ineautiinu the people of the country
have had their patience worn thread
bare with these interminable railroad
strikes, and if some other remedy is
not supplied, and that right toon,

of the country may he demanded as a
dernier rersort. however much such
leinedy may be deplored.
How great a man is Hon. Win.
Morrison. Hut in all his greatness
hu seems not to comprehend t'.iat tho
country has decided not to follow hi
tariff vagiries further than it. has
aire idv been lead in the direction of
utter ruin to its manufacturing, com
mcrcial and agricultural interests.
His announcement on tho iloor of the
house that "ho will take care of the
Mindry civil appropriation bill," while
it manifests his own and his partv's
rule or ruin disposition, need not
cause alarm for the safety of the gov
eminent, for while that party, as a
party, is committed to the Moriion
tariff policy, there are enough iudivid
till members of tho party iu the houc
who have the bc-t interests of the
country at heart who will join with
the llcpublicans to check tho idio-
cratic schemes of Morrison and his
tollowcrs to get notoriety at tho ma'
tcrial welfare of the country. If,
therefore, Mr. Morrison and his co
obstructionists would save themselves
from the unenviable responsibility of
cmbarra-s.iug the government which
mu-t result from their course if per
sisted in, they will heed the gentle
admonition given in the refusal of the
house to enter into an endless, sense
less discussion of the tariff question
at this late day. ioin in the work of
speedily consummating the legitimate
and necessary work of tho session,
adjourn aud go home.
THE VETO BUSINESS.
President Cleveland has already vc-
toed thirty bill, a larger number
than any of his predecessors. Presi
dent Washington vetoed two bills
and Abraham Lincoln withheld his
Function from one joint resolution;
Andrew Jackson in eigh" j cars vetoed
elc en measure-. It will uot bo set
up by any considerable number of
1 crsousthat President Cleveland pos
sesses a judgment superior to, or a
conscience more sensitive than Wash
ington, Jackson or Lincoln. Thero
is but one person in tho world who
incline- to that opinion, and that is
Mr. Cleveland himclf The conceit
that reveals itself in the shapeof that
iiammtTiicau oi ms. is me uiiucuuy
A bill has to pass through the bauds
of a committee of tho house, then
pass the house; then go through a
senate committee, then bo reported to
the i-cuato and pass that body, tcforc
it goes to the president. It must be
read in all six time; and it is consid
er! d quick work if it gets through the
mill in six month. Yet when a bill
which provides that private Joue, an
old soldier, shall get a pension of
$o.47 per month, instead of $4.33, as
at prescut, the president takes it upon
himself to sty that he, after lookiug
over tho bill "for five minutes, knows
more about the case than both the
senate aud house. He kuows more
about private Jones than Jones knows
about himself, and by his veto says
that Jones is a tripplcd old importer
who ought to have stayed at home
during the war, as he, Cleveland, did.
and that the congress of the United
States-is guilty of conniving nt an at
tempted fraud on the treasury.
Tho President has lately vetoed bills
making appropriations for public
buildings at Sioux City and at Zanee
ville. He knows that the public ser
vice docs not demand public buildings.
Ho knows more than the public offi
cers who transact business in those
cities. He knows more than all Iowa
and all Ohio and the House of Repre
sentatives and the Senate, scparatcly
and together. He never saw Zanes
villc, aud from personal observation
he knows no more of Sioux City than
he knows of Calcutta; bnt he kuows
very well that they do uot need public
buildings, lie just Knows it,
there is an end of it Champion
THEA.T. &8. F.
Rumors have been current for some
time that the Atchison, Topeka &
Santa Fe has determined to build an
independent line from Kansas City to
Chicago, and the fact that surveyors
in the employ of that company have
been making surveys between the
Mississippi river and Chicago rather
tended to confirm these reports. A
Chicago paper learns from a reliable
source that those surveys are made
for tho purpose of concealing the real
nbipcts of the Atchison. Topeka &
Santa Fe. There can no longer bo
anv doubt, it save, that the Atciuson,
Topeka & Santa Fe is really trying to

Santa Fe, it is learned, is nowtrjing
to secure control oi a inajuni ui m
stock of the Alton and thus virtually
become its owner. From what can be
learned President Blackstoue and the
other large stockholders of the Alton
are uot disinclined to dispose of their
holdings to the Atchison. Topeka &
Santa Fe people provided they can
get their price for the same. The
high price asked for the slock is
olnlmcrl In hf now the only obstacle
in tho irav nt the consummation of
tho trade. The stock of the
Aiinn is nuofed higher than
that of any other western road, but It
is claimed that it will be more profita
ble for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa
Fc people to pay the large amount re
quired for a controling interest in the
Alton than to build a new line or eveu
to purchase some other road which
could be had for much less money.
The Alton is not only one of the finest
roads in the country in every respect,
but it is so located as to be peculiarly
adapted as a superior outlet for the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Kc. It
would not only give the Santa Fe the
most direct outlet from Kansas City
to Chicago, but also from St. Louis to
Chicago in connection with the St.
Louis & San Francisco, which is now
rnnnrr-lrd hv the Santa Fe. But the
mnstimnortant noint is that the Al
ton affords outlets to the east from all
the most important junction points
between Chicago and St. Louis, and
would therefore enable the Santa Fe
to compete with any of the existing
western lines on east-bound business,
whether going to Chicago or directly
io the cast via auy of the junction
points. Topeka Capital.
The Eagle hopes the Santa Fe may
succeed iu getting a controling inter
est in the Alton; it will give Wichita
one more through trunk line.
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY FROM
A DEMOCRATIC STANDPOINT.
From Chicago Timt.
That which goes by the name of the
Democratic party is manifested only
in the form0, terms aud methods of
an election machine. It is uot a form
ation of electors around any political
question. Though it is a name applied
loa majority of the icprcfccuiatives,
it is not a union of that majority iu
anv political purpose. It is not a
party that guides, directs or controls
the representative decisions or the
political policy of the nation on auy
public question. It is not the govern
ing partv. The proof of this has bei'ii
furnished by a fatal division among
the representatives of its name on
every public question of importance
that ha-, entered congress since ma
jority appeared there confessing theii
election bv its machine. It is au or
ganized fraud. It is a hypocritical
sham. It i9 a name of conjuration to
capture the voles of electoral fools
for the profit of office seeking knaves.
The knaves that conjure by it arc of
every political color, race and tribe,
as well as uoudescripls. They arc pro
tectionists and freetrader; civil service
reformers and incorrigible spoilsmen;
progressive liberals aud reactionary
bourbons; demagogues on every side
of every public question, united in
nothing but a habit of seeking their
pergonal advancement by methods of
When Randall and Morrison, pro
tectionist aud free-trader, entered
the samo church, sat lovingly in the
samo pew, subscribed to the same
pretended articles of faith, they knew
that they were playing before the
countrv agamo of deceit. When the
forcmo'st free-trader and the foremost
protectionist united to place in the
chair a man who would place them
where they could most effectually
divide the pretended governing
nartv asrainst itself, they knew and
he knew that it was a proceeding of
political dishonesty, tne consequence
was what every rational being fore
saw. They did not intend the rational
consequence of their performance? It
cannot bo said that they were so fee
ble of understanding as not to per
ceive it. They saw the effect in the
preceding congress, and seeing it de
liberately proceeded to repeat the
game of fraud in this congress.
Again tho country witnesses the
samo result; n-itucsscs the cumulative
proof that that which goes by the
name of Democratic party is not a
political party, nor a body o repre
sentatives capable of party govern
ment, but a ring of place hunting
gamblers on popular credulity, co
operating only to prevent party gov
ernment and to maintain an embargo
on political progress.
