"It's an ill wind that blows nobody
good ; " and while the cattle men quietly
chuckle over the present fight between
two rival freight lines from Kansas City
to Chicago and St. .Louis, they enjoy the
pleasant satisfaction oi Having sixty dol
lars on each car of cattle shipped to the
former city and thirty dollars on each car
shipped to the latter from Kansas City.
The Kansas Pacific Railway views with
complacency this kilkenny cat fight, from
tho fact that the contest is waged in Kan
sas City alone, and at no intermediate
point between there and the cities nam
ed, is there any reduction from former
rates, consequently this road enjoys the
entire benefits accruing from thb fight
On Tuesday last cattle were shipped
from .Kansas City to Chicago, at fifteen
dollars per car, and to St. Louis at five
dollars per car.
Our cattle men are praying for a con
tinuation of the war.
"We notice that the sentiments of the
people, arc changing very much upon the
matter of primary elections. They have
changed their sentiments because they
arc fully convinced that these affairs are
ouc-sided ; handled by a few politicians,
nndareJn no way cxproive of the will
of the people. A few men get together
and nitmc their candidates for the differ
ent offices and then work to hecure the
election of delegates that will vote for
the nomination of those candidates.
The voters generally will not lav aside
business to attend the primary elections,
as they can illy afford to spend so much
lime in politics. Election day is enough
for them. Politicians thus have their
own way, and delegates arc elected that
do not in any way represent the people.
If there was no purer representation of
the people in America than that found
in a delegate convention, we would have
little faith in her institutions. To sum it
all up, a delegate convention is for the
most part composed of men already
plcdged to tho support of a list of can
didates already agreed Upon by A. and B.,
and when the time comes the votes are
cast, not according to the wishes of the
people, but according to the wishes of a
lew politicians. We know of one con
vention held in this county where two
men nominated all tho candidates; fifteen
minutes composing the time in which the
whole ticket was nominated. These men
had the names of thcir'candidates writ
ten down in regular order, and made
nominations as fast as tho different offi
ces were called. There was no discuss
ion upon the qualifications and fitness of
tho different men for tho several posi
tions, but the balance ot the delegates
sat in as profound silence as a parcel of
mummies in the tombs of -Egypt.
We are glad, as wo stated above, that
tho people arc changing their views with
regard to conventions, and have inde
pendence enough to denounce them.
They no longer consider themselves such
abject slaves to party as to be compiled
to voto for a man however bad, who is
nominated. They propose to vote for
whom they please, and that is a privilege
no one can jlenyTlf?

sIn many different counties
i of the !
conventions arc bcinjjJipiUfpnT while
thoso desirous or office, come out, and
make the, race upon their own merits.
This is the proper way. Let the aspi
rant place his name beforo the people,
independent of cliques. and clans and
stand his chances. If he is a good man
for the position, he will be elected ; if not,
he will bo defeated.
Topcka, Burlington, Burlingame, Gar-
nett, Cottonwood Falls, and next, but not
last, Junction city, are fishing for the
Iloldcn Railroad as it approaches inland
into Kansas. Should it go to cither of
these points, Saliua may as well " hang
up her fiddle " so far as she can hope to
get it. It may- not bo presupposed that
cither one them has a better chance than
Salina for securing it, or even as good,
but we do not know what a certain
amount of determination and work will
accomplish. If others stir themselves,
and wo do not,"it is very evident we may
expect nothing'.' Some of tho people of
oauua uivd acicu very crcaiiaoiy in uie
interests of securing this road, and still
propose to. keep their eyes open to its
importance, but' all of us should seek
every opportunity and work forthe road
to come to Salina. Of course these points
are deserving of praise for their efforts
for tho Holden railroad, but their acts
should spur us on to our duty.
The Parsons Sun 6ays quite an amusing
incident occurred tho othcrday on one
ot tho side tracks at Parsons, in which
an eugiaeer on the M. K. AT. was the
hero. He had Ukea the hallucination
in his mind that he was to be hang, and
jumping on tho engine ho forced on all
steam and sent her kiting. The .engine
banged against some cars, broke one to
pieces, and' would have done'no inconsi
derable amount of dammage had .not one
in his right mind seised bold of the rail
road machine 'ana controlled it.

The Herald and its friends are going to

wo and our friends are involved. We
feel timorous before the ominous shad

fond of their company. This is the on

this sudden outburst of feeling on the
part of the "smoker" was caused by a
sudden attack of "snakes!" They say

We gave a partial account, last week,
of the meeting held in our city Tuesday
cvcning,to confer with parties from Clay
Center, Clay county, in the interests of
extending the narrow-guage railroad
from Leavenworth by Clay Center to Sa

of Bishop & Norton's, M. D. Slocum was

Powers, II. F. Woolley and A. M. Becbe
were selected to proceed, in company
with the Clay Center delegation, to Leav
enworth to talk np the enterprise. Capt.
Prcscott returned Friday and stated that
most of the citizens industriously work

taining statistical and other facts relating
to narrow guago railways, compiled by
S. W. Dorsey. This is said to be a full
and complete argument upon this topic,
and a work of rare merit. Aa the sub
ject of narrow guage railways is engag
ing the attention of the people and' the
press to agr:at extent in this State, we
shall from time to time endeavor to give
extracts from Dorscy's pamphlet. This
week wc give below some very valuable
WHAT A WIDE GUAGE WILL DO
The entire length of the road named
is 1,450 miles. The average gross weight
ot each train hauled is about ZoU tons,
which would require 240,000 trains, or,
in 313 working days in tho year, 767
trains per day over all parts of tho road
of 1,440 miles in 24 hours. The Compa
ny s boooks show that each net ton pro
duces about 81,20, which, at three cents
per ton per mile, makes the average dis
juice traveled 03-each ton ot freight 40
miles so that each ton of the total weight
hauled travels 40 miles, and consequently
each train only averages 40 miles in dis
tance per day traveled. The road being
1,450 miles long, it follows that there
must be an average of 36 trains distribu
ted over the total length constantly : this
number divided into the total number of
trains per day shows an average of about
21 trains per day passing over each mile
of road, or one every 70 minutes. Thus
it will lie seen that, notwithstanding the
movement is so enormous, if the trains
sustain an average speed of 25 miles an
hour, one train in following another is
in time 70 minutes behind the preceding
one and in distance about 27 miles.
You will thus see what a large surplus
cupaiity this road has fordoing business.
Let us now see what could be done with
this amount of traffic if the guage were
3 feet in place of 4 feet 8t inches. In
the first place a speed of .'50 miles an hour
can be maintained on a "narrow guage,"
yet wc will accept the same speed as the
wiuo . e., 2o miles per hour.
WIIAT A NAHIIOW GUAGE WILL DO.
The narrow guage freight car weighs
1J tons, anil will carry say 4 tons pay
ing freight, 10,000,000 tons paying
freight therefore, would require 8,750-
000 tons of dead car weight" to be moved,
or a lotal of I.J, i o(j, 000 tons gross wt.
moved on narrow guage as against 60,
000,000 on wide gtiageT We will assume
that the narrow guage trains each weigh
150 tons, it would require then 91,660
trains each 3-ear to handle the amount of
treigltt named, or, in .JliJ days, 284 trams
per day, each train averaging 40 miles
per day; and-the road being 1,450 miles
long, there would be an cverage of 36
trains distributed over the road daily.
This number divided into the total num
ber of trains per day, an we have an av
erage of eight trains every 24 hours pas
sing over each mile of road, or one every
three hours. If the train sustain an ave
rage speed of 23 miles an hour, one train
following another is in time 3 hours and
in distance 75 miles behind the preced
ing one. Note the lollowitig compari

From the Hiawatha Dispatch we learn
thai a blacksmith named Snooks attempt
ed suicide in that village' on Wednesday
night last, by cutting his throat, while la
boring under an attack of delirium tre
mens. He made a bloody job but did
not succeed in killing himself. He has
a family in St. Joseph.
The President has formally tendered to
Felix R. Bninot, of Pittsburg, Pa., the
appointment of Commissioner of Indian
Affairs and it is nearly certain that the
appointment will be accepted. Mr. Bni
not is a member of the Indian board and
his selection appears to satisfy all parties.
The statement of last week noting the
probability of the appointment of our es
teemed fellow-citizen, Col. AVm. A. Phil
lips, to be Commissioner was undoubt
edly superinduced by the overzeal and
hopes of his strongest friends. But we
profess not to have had an unbounded
faith in the Colonel's selection, though it
would have pleased us much to sec it have
been made. There arc rather too many
office-seekers now-a-days and too many
men in power who have their sncctal

contemplates the building of a manufac
tory in Kunw of mowing machines. It
is well known that the Spragues are,,.
among tho heaviest manufacturers in the !
United State?; and the establishment by
them of a branch in Kansas would be of
great benefit to our State. The location
of this factory has not yet been decided
upon." Why not seek for the establish

fort to secure them would be worth tho
trial by our people. "Ve have relative

Below we give an abstract of the report
of the Ku-Klux commissioners appoint
ed by Congress, who have been on a
tour of invstigation in the South :
The sub Ku-klnx commissioners, con
sisting of Senator Scott and representa
tive Stephenson and Van Trump, visited
Washington to-day, returning from a so
journ of four weeks in various parts of
south Carolina, where they nave been in
vestigating Ku-klux outrages on the spot
where tney occurred. J. hey first visited
tho capital, Columbia,, where more than
one hundred refugees who had fled from
violence in various counties were there
but after examining witnesses for 2 days,
thecommission decided to goto the scenes
of alleged violence, and went to Spar-
tansourg. ihey expected to remain
there three or four days, but stayed elev
en. When they got out through Spar
tansburg count-, they wero there met by
whites anu blacks, who came in by scores
every day from all directions.
A negro man and a republican white
man had slept in the woods tor months
every night. They showed scarified
backs, gun shot wounds, maimed cars
and other proof of violence the had suf
fered. In Limestone and Springtonship
one hundred and eighteen cases of whip
ding have been proved. A committee
awoke every morning to find in the yard
by the hotel a new crowd of victims of
xvu-kiux. ooinu liiciuutng wniies, nau
suffered outrages which cannot bo de
scribed with decency. After being whin
ed, the victims, well known persons,
were often commanded, under pain of
death, to publish a card dcouncing the
republican party. In a file of the South
Carolina Spartan, democratic newspaper,
forty-two sueh cards were found, recent
ly published. At Unionsvillo the com
mittee remained two days. Not an av
owed white republican could be found
in the place. Through a member of the
committee they were privileged to bo
notified by a few that they would avow
themselves if protected. The terror of
the negroes here is complete. Tho last
election was carried by a republican
majority, but the republican conty offi
cers received Ivu-klux notices and all re
signed or fled. The policy there has
been more towards murder and less to
wards whipping. Tho killing of ten
negroes, taken trom tho jail by several
hundred Ku-klux, acting under the
military organization; was investigated
by a prominent lawyer of the place.
Jlr. Hand, democrat, in the course of
the examination, startled the committee
by stating that he believed almost every
respectable unmarried man in the com
munity belonged to the Ku-klux, and he
believed that a thousand Ku-klux were
within a days inarch of tho village.
A negro Methodist preacher named
Louis Thompson, who hail an appoint
ment June 11th at (ioshen Hill Church,
Union county, recicved Ku-klux notice
in the usual 'form, not (o preach, lie
preached, notwithstanding, a very few,
most of the congregation fleeing when
they saw the notice of the clan. Twen
ty mounted Ku-klux came, tied and whij
ped him, led him off several miles, drag
ged him part of the way, lied to horses,
and wluppcd again until death, lltey
mutilatcd him in a way that cannot,
with propriety, bo described. After
hanging him to a tree they threw his
body into the Tiger river, leaving a no
tice forbidding any one to bur' him be-
lore me cniiiiiimcc returned.' ocnator

refugee from Columbia to Union county,

A serious shooting affray occurred in
Benton county on the 20th, between two
families named Beose and Pierce. On
the day in question twelve men were
threshing wheat in a field the residence
ofilce.se, tho father of a half a dozen sons
who were present, Six men of Pierce's
came into the field and stood around the
threshers for some time, when all of a
sudden oncof tho Pierces struck one of
Bccses with a pitchfork. The father of
Becsc then struck with a grain shovel,
when another of the Pierces, pulling a
pistol, shot Bcese in the head, inflicting
a dangerous wound, shot another of the
Becses in the thigh and killed the third
outright. A general fight then com
menced in which two others, one on each
side, were wounded. The assailants then
started on their return, when one of the
Pierce's shot back at the crowd, and at
the same instant received a shot from
one of the Becses, which killed him.
No arrests were made. Tho difficulty
grew out of some differences between

The following particulars ot a terrible

boiler at 12:20 to-day in her slip at White-
uau sirvcu luc concussion was lerruic,
shattering the forward part of the boat,
and killing and scalding a great number
of the people. The hurricane deck was
carried overboard, and large numbers of
persons fell into the water and were
drowned. The front of the boiler was
blown out of the forward part of the
boat. The upper cabin was shivered
and split into a thousand pieces, as an eye
witness expresscu it. j.ne lorwaru pan
of the boat was lifted fifty feet in the air.
the smoke-stack fell, and then everything
was uuricu 111 1110 note in ironi oi ino
huge boiler, which gushed out a deadly
fume of steam. Large numbers of po
lice and firemen were on hand in a few
minutes, and went to work energetically
to extricate the wounded and dead. Phy
sicians were also present and rendered
prompt aid to the sufferers. The harbor
police boat and row boats were also used
to save life. Tho cries of the half boiled
victims were heart-rending.
As fast as the wounded were recover
ed they were borne to the deck of anoth
er ferry-boat, moored alongside, and af
terward driven at full speed to the Cen
ter street hospital where the poor scalded
and mangled victiraes received the best
of attention. Privato carriages and ex
press wagons were also brought into re
quisition. Some died on the way and
others were delirious with pain. One
ambulance was filled with children,
whose eyes were closed, and whoso faces
wero swollen beyond all recognition.
Their little feet and legs were cooked
and their tender muscles laid bare. By
four o'clock over ninety wounded per
sons had been received at the Center st
Hospital. Five of them died within an
hour. The scenes here were heart-rend
ing. Twenty-one persons were Killed
nearly outright. Many who fell in the
water wero drowned beforo help could
reach them. A great many were taken

The Persain minister acmes explicitly
the reports which have been received re
cently ol ravages by lamine, plague and
cholera in Persia. He says there is un
doubtedly a lamentable scarcity of food
among the poorer classes, and they are
fed at the expense of the government in
cemctries, because thcrcis in them alono
sufficient room to accommodate the large
crowds of people who appeal to the au
thorities for subsistence. Order is pre
served by the police, and from this fact
has arisen the story that the force has
been employed for preventing the disin
