Ss lONEY MerctaMorig SAUNA, KANSAS, THURSDAY, AUGUST DEMOCRAT VS. DEMOCRAT. Senator Payne, of Ohio, In an In terview at Toledo, la credited with thla statement: "The laboring men are never free traders. You never see the names of worklngnlen on Iwtitlons to congress for a reduction of the tariff." This observation which is as true as preaching comes from Senator Payne as a practical business man and not as a Democratic or mug wump theorist. The views of Senator Payne are supported by those of another aged and experienced Democrat and a statesman of considerable uote the Hon. Benjamin Wood, of New York. It will be remembered that he was a member, years ago, of the State Sen ate and also of the House of Repre sentatives. He is now one of the proprietors of the New York Newt. At Saratoga the othei day he ex pressed himself strongly in favor of a protective tariff, and said his opinion was shared by a large pro tortion of the intelligent working men of the country. He believes moreover that this class of men are very largely in the Republican party. He said: "It Is an erroneous Impression that the workingmen's vote is iaigely Uemocialic. At least eighty-five ier cent of skilled workmen vote t lie Republican ticket. This I have proved for years In the city of New Vork by employing truBtworthj lieu to canvass the workshops ami factories, mid the reason is very plain. They say. "Let manufactur ed articles come In free and where will olir high wages go to?" Ninety-live per cent of the unskilled workiugmen vote the Democratic ticket." Where should Intelligent working men be, but In the Republican party' Where else Is there any stability of losition regarding that question hi vital to them protection lo Ameri can Industrie'.' According to the opinion of an unuRimlly well-informed Democratic authority, elghly-Jirt per ceiil. of Ihe nilllfd workmen are in the Republican imrly aud ninety five prr cent. t the umkitlrrf work men are in the party of vague uotiour of tariff, revenue and finance, and ot more than a loving leaning toward free t rade! If the Democratic party under takes to force i It free tiade notion upon Ihe country, it will be Demo crat vR Democrat. Thoe men like I'uyue, and Wood, and Sam Kau dall, in every Slate will be found in phalanx to opMie aud confound their party on this tieitlou. WllATtrvnis the feeling ill Demo cratic tanks, it was thought best by the Ohio Democratic convention, after laying aside a veteraji ealiill-' date for the nomination otUovernor, lo adopt a formal resolution recog nizing the claims of the I'liioti sold iers. This action does Hot strike the New Orleans Timv-I)ehucrtit very favorably, aud it says: It may be deemed o)ltlcaII.v necessary in Ohio to bid for the soldi ier vote by supporting peusiou bills yet e can not but regard the peu siou plauk as weak. The Democra cy might as well drop this pension racket altogether and come out squarely on the proposition that the country has done enough already for the soldiers, aud now it has got.to do something for tax-payers. Such a platform would, we feel sur, meet with the same approval aud suport as Mr. Cleveland's veto of the de IMMiuent peusiou and numerous pri vate bills. Ou the other hand, the Ohio convention seeks to prove that .Mr. Cleveland is strongly in favor of peuslous whereas, one of the strong est points in his favor is his courage iu vetoing so many of '.hem. Tills is frank, to say the least. We have not the slightest doubt that others besides the Timet-Democrat aud Its readers are tired of what it calls ''this (.elision racket." lint It is too soo u to do It, The war may be a "dead issue," but the veteran. live. The people who caused the racket at Fort Sumter in ISO:! and who kept it up with so much cour age and vigor for four years, wll.1 have to stand the "pension racket" for some years yet to come. CoNiltKSH5!AN I'ktkhs, of Kansas, has just returned from the Kast. He says those circulating a damag ing reKirt about a drouth in Kansas "never have anything to say about the drouth in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and in fact all through-the east," aud adds thafon the Rock Is land, for n distance of IUO miles west of Chicago, he did not' see a green blade or leaf of any kind; their com crop Is an absolute failure; all through Ihe cast there have been no rains for weeks, and. crniw will amount to nothing." It ii true that this year will be a close one for Kan sas farmers and others caused by the dry season, but the state will experi ence small impairment from that source. From the old crops on hand and what is raised the stale will get along very well without! sending abroad for supplies. I lithe multitude of next year's bothitlful harvests Kausas will forget that there was such a thing as a partial failure of crops in 18K7. The pro lific resources of our Maleenalde the people to iass an occasional ordeal of this character without great in convenience. The president aud Mrs. Cleve land will islt Philadelphia as the guests of the constitutional centen nial commission September 15, 16 and 17. There will be a great mili tary pageautou the occasion, includ ing these volunteer soldiery: Eight thousand soldiers from Pennsyl. vauia, 1,500 from Massachusetts; 1,800 from New Jersey; 1,000 from Missouri; 550 from Delaware: 500 from Virginia; 360 from North Car olina; 100 from South Carolina; SOO from Rhode Island; 1,200 from Con necticut; 600 from New Hampshire; SOO from Ohio. Tire Wichita boom Is liable to receive a very serious Injary frentm very simple source apparently, in the shape of a little pimple which has made Its appearanee on the face of Marsh Murdoch and is supposed to be -& cancer. If theaalhoraad fashioner of Wichita's wiBti should disappear from the management of. the Eagle, It would eerUialy be s grievous i blow to Wichita. That Britania still rules the waves, was pretty well demonstrated when the queen was permitted to re view four miles of iron clads last week. Times have certainly changed since the wooden walls of England wereaecBjuted her sure defense froiitquUide invasion. One of her present ponderous iron clads ;ould easllylthjone discharge make kin dling taeJ of an old-time three deckersiieh as Nelson used at the battle of the Nile or Trafalgar. Eng land believes in her ability to cope with the world upon the seas, and It is not conceit which actuates her in this pretension. What can we say of our own little navy rather our lack of a navy? Such ships as we have are not strong enough to stand the recoil of the monster gum with which they are equipped. Two shots by the way of test, or practice, were tired the other day on board the At lanta, one of our recently built cruis ers, and the result was most disas trous. It is said by a competent na val officer that the damage lo the ves sel Iiy the recoil of the big gun will take $ lUO.Oyojo repair. This is one of the cruisers built under the plans and specifications of a naval board, or committee, who seem to have l)eeu a thorough set of incompetents. It is surmised. that the three ships built under the same mismanage ment will develop equal structural weakuess. Secretary Whitney is said to le discouraged over the out come, probably not more so than the average American citizen. The New York World says: "the mugw ump faction bases Its existence solely upon Its hatred of Ulalue." For what ? Fur nut yielding an Inch of thoie principles which uphold the honor of Uncle Sam when assailed at home or abroad? Men may not want him as their candidate fur their president, or Ihey may prefer Mime one else to him, yet all muM ickuowledge that lie is a statesman jnd that he has held high the ban ner of his country e very vhere. His present visit iu Queen Victoria's dominion has been to re publican America's glory; he has neest a plebeian among aristocrats mil potentates. Mugwump hatred of Itlalne, forsooth ! What queer tastes nine ieople (osses. No, we judge (hat beyond a few George J Will lain Curtises there will not remain a mugw ump to opote James G. Itlalne ihould he be the candidate of the parly. He is one of the stntesmen of hnni the eople of the United Hllites may he thoroughly proud, and who us president would fill that high and exalted ihmIIIoii grandly aud ably. A Nkw York special to the Qlobe Druutcrut says: "Edward Gould Is watched closely by all the keen op erators now, for the reason that ever since he came upon the street he has been "coppering" all his father's predictions. If Jay Gonld prophe cies a rise, the young man immed iately begins to "sell short," and he wins every timer- niood will tell, and Edward Go'ild takes to specula tion as naturally as a duck takes to water. He is credited with having made $5,000,000 in as many weeks. If this is not a mere accident of luck, but the development of money get ting taleut by evolution, a Gould by the next generation will be able to scoop In the whole earth." Tiik Rus.iell Jlcvlew reaches us this week with name changed to Russell Democratic Review. 1. H. and H. Franklin retire and they are -ucceeded by Chas. Smith and W. E. Hanks. Mr. Smith is county treas urer and Mr. Banks was engaged for years iu the drug trade at Russell, and was appointed postmaster by Cleveland In 1885, but he soon re signed. The Messrs. Franklin sell out because their price was paid and they wanted to quit the business. Kussell is not a first-rate field fora Democratic paer, but the new men are iMipular gentlemen and active workers who are working into the harness In line order. The National Civil Service Reform League held its sessions at Newport, It. I., Wednesday, and re-elected George William Curtis president The latter, In his address, criticised Ihe administration touching appoint ments to office, remarking that It was not, in any strict sense of the word, a civil service reform admin istration. The resolutions state that a circular addressed to the officials in July. lKsfl, has been disregarded, eieolaliy in Maryland, and point mt changes that should be made in conformity with the law. It was stated that of 1M apppoiatees in the Philadelphia postoffice 193 were Democrats. TnK conference of Republican edi tors at Saratoga, N. Y., on Tuesday, portends the party's good. Its' pur pose was an interchange of views be Iweeu editors themselves and the state central committee, with a view io more united work in the future. About 100 daily papers, chiefly those of-the Interior towns, was represent ed, and the day was spent in dtscusn ng questions of political ollcy. Another meeting will beheld at the time of the state convention. Tottle, the Grand Army man lo Iowa, has lost the cunning ot his ways since lie ceased to be a Demo crat. When he ran for Governor be was quite a saint and got the vote oT every mother's son of them; now he is "loud-mouthed," "ex-cotton thief," etc., to them! He manages to hold his own pretty Well against their jobbing, however, and puts them to flight most always when they come within reach of the point of his spear. The rain of Wednesday afternoon and night waa the heaviest Beloit has experienced this season. The rain of Thursday night visited this and other parts of the state. Be tween the, two It seems that all Kan sas bu received a general soaklag, which will be greatly welcomed to enable the farmers to do their fall p lowing and to furnish pasture feetf. 11, 1887. Joel B. Mavis has just been elected chief of the Cherokee In dians. He was chief justice of the supreme court of the Cherokee na tion for a tenn of years, aud is an able and distinguished man. Sam uel Smith, who was elected assistant chief, is s full blood Cherokee. The Busbyhead or national party, which supported Bunch, haa held oft lee for years, aud has shaped the policy of the Cherokees, regardless of the wishes of the masses. The official machinery was under their control, and their defeat Is regarded almost as miraculous. Mayes is liberal aud progressive aud is pledged to reform. Prof. Snow, of the State Univer sity, in his weather report, shows July just passed to have been the hottest month since lb74. The rain fall during the time was less tba.. half the July average. He says: "We are now passing through a period of rain deficiency, one or which, according to our observa tions, occurs once in about -iiven years, each alternate period jet ig one of maximum deficiency." Fol lowing the rule Kansas may antici pate a seasonable and bountiful season to follow next year. The following remarkable story is told by the Russell tieevrtl: A Btrauge story comes from New ton. Last week a man with loth legs missing appeared ou our streets begging. He Is an old soldier who has been searching through long years for the surgeon who amputa ted his limits, so that he could se cure a pension. Dr. Coleman of Newtou noticed the man and iu iiuestlouiug him It was discovered that thedoctor was Ihe long searched for army surgeon. The man was ta ken care of and will now probably be able to get a pension. The Topeka Capital gives a truth patent to all who have swallowed the waters of the Mississippi, in the follow lug language The water of IhegniniT old Missis sippi having now attained the con sistency of mucilage, Ihe mHrs published along its banks are work ing over their annual articles dem onstrating it to lie the best driukilit; water In the world. TnuNew York World draws Ihe following archaic comtmrisou on Ihe president's defiance of public opin ion: "When the animals were com ing out of the ark, the gangway was crowded aud 'there was a K. widen stoppage. The red ant turned to the elephant, who was immediately be hind, and wrathfully said: 'Say! who are yen shovlu'? " A I'iiii.aiiKi.i'IW.v publisher says the revised bible has fallen fiat. "Hundreds of thousands of copies remain on the shelves, and the peo ple will uol have them at any price. They stick to the bibles or their fa thers and mothers." If the boys and girls do that they will be all right. Til E Ottawa ItepuUlruH announces that the publisher of lis cotitcuio rary Is a watermelon thief, having held the horse on several occasions while his boy went into the field af ter melons. Further advices have not been received frum the seat of war. A party of Ku-Klux went out to lynch three Mormons near Augusta, Ga., but the Mormons nlead so elo quently that the Ku-Klux let them go. Is It any wonder, in view of this exhibltio.i of verbal power, that the Mormons find converts? John M. Crow ell says If Major Morrill Is not selected, the next gov ernor must come from central Kau sas. Of course the Colonel had his eyes aud thoughts upon Saline coun tv tlie center of central Kansas. How would Faulkner do? August 1, 1883, the British govern meutlltierated 800,000 uegro slaves In the West India Islands. Hence, "Emancipation Dy" emanates.

In conversation with Mr. Pike, he in formed us that the company lias now investedln their business uearly50, 0tj,andauinspectionwill show the vis tor as complete gas and electric light works as can be found In the state. Everything is admirably arranged, and built with the idea of having it safe and convenient. They have moved their ofilce to the rear of their property, and in Its place on Third street, immediately adjoining the gasworks, have erected a substan tial bulidlng, 23x45, which will be used exclusively for the manufac ture of electric light. On a foundation or 5 feet and 10 'nehesnf solid masonry 8xl5 feet, -His the engine. It is Ball's auto m le, cut-off, high speed, 100-horse pow er engine and is a perfect beauty to look at.

This system is used in Chicago, Kansas City, Wichita and iu most ot the larger cities east, and Is highly spoken of. The clly should put up a tower somewhere near the center, or several If thought best, and give the city a brilliant appearance at night. Mr. Pike has worked hard, and sjieut money free ly, since lie became u resident or Salina, and he should be liberally patron Izeh-by the citizen's in return for w hat he has done for us. TIIK SEWKKUUKSTION. Tlir Plan Tur a .Hjatrtn or Uundrrxround fwenn Tur Salina Apprara Vraa- IMo to tm llrought before the OounclL The estimates aud plans which we rererred to yesterday as being made by Robert McMatli, the sewerage commissioner, of St. Louis, have been formulated aud will be pre sented to the city eouucll at an early meeting for consideration. The whole subject was taken under ad visement by City Engineer John ston anil members of the council who lent him such aid by furn ishing 'him data, showing him over the city, eto. Mr. McMatli having completed the work left ou last night's' train for home. After making estimates of brick, grades aud tiling, the difference of cost ou brick aud tiling sewers was calculnted. Mr. MoMath figures tiiat for the old town site (about etglit miles of sewer) would cost about 456,000, or alKiult5 to a 60-foot lot. The plan as offered embraces an almost square scope of territory from First street on the cant to the Missouri Pacific railroad west of Normal University, and from Norths street on Ihe north to Crawford ave nue on the south or about W0 acres. Tills Is the outline for the west side of the Smoky river, or the city proper. All the east side of the city Is pro posedn a cirate sewer district, with the sewerage tending to the location of the old Bartlett slaughter bouse, as an outlet. The gentlemen rho have thus briefly been associated with Mr. Mc Matli ia this matter express them selves as fully satisfied with what he offers to the city for sewerage, and entertain the greatest confidence in his qualifications and competency. His responsibility In Ills own city is a guaranty ot bis standing. The sewer question Is or ihe ut most importance. Something should be done, but that something should be th very best system to be had. '1 he health of the city demands this action and every part of the city is interested. Salina must resort to underground sewerage sooner or later, ami it may le asked, why pro erastiHate? It will uot be surpris ing if the plans are adopted by the ceunell. The members are favora bly Impressed with them. The Rain, the Beautife! Rain. The rain eame at last, and the "an imal and vegetable kingdoms" are .rejoiced thereat. Yeslenlay after noon after the rain clouds had marched here aud there and every wheredrawing up inline or battle in various parts of the heaveus and hail male considerable show as if for business, the rain commenced following, aud fell at intervals dar ing the sight. It Was a good rain. I wetting the soil dawn a good depth From appearances we should judge that the fall was quite general in the country, which being so will do muoh for the paatutage, hay lands and stock Interests. It will place the soil ia fine condition for plowing. The rain has broken the terrible dry spell, and this morning the atmos phere is wonderfully cool so cool that LbJek clothing 1 In demand, the ttxsrar Acxvnvxa cejitek; SU1I Asothar 'Worthy Zatcrpriaa that la Heating- with Soeeeaa. While the JrfURNAL k giving space to some ot Sallna's most prominent Industries, we must not omit-the old reliable establishment that-haa grown to considerable proportions, right here In our midst the Eb hardt Mattress factory. They started on a comparatively small scale sev eral years ago, but by careful and luslness-llke management, have steadily increased their facilities, until now they have as complete a factory as is located anywhere In the west. They are located on a val uable property, on the corner ot Fourth aHd North streets, where they own a strip of ground 120 by 360 feet. Tbey have built their factory on the second let from the corner with the view ot sometime in the future puttingup a large store room on the corner lot. The front or finishing room ia 50x48 feet, with an office 12x14, in the corner. In this room la set the wire weaving machine, whleh is run by a neat little Wlllard engine. It gets its water through- pipes from the pump room, and an underground shaft connects it with the wire weaver maohlne. Thla unique ma chine spins out with lightning speed two wires at once, the length of two matresses. The wire is woven on this bench, then passes on to another bench where It Is uailed on frames, then ,roes tothe stretcher, where it is finished for market. The wire, canvas or upholstered cots are made in this room, ana girls are also busy in there making ticks, eto., the whole presenting a very busy ap pearance. Next comes the mattress room where the finest excelsior, husk, cotton, wool, hair au 1 moss top nia treses are turned out, u connection with pillows of all descriptions. This room is 18x4S feet, and serves also as a store room for the feathers, moss, hair, etc., that is used in this department. llackot this stands the machinery room which contains four complete excelsior machines, feather renova tor aud wool machine. The Excel sior machines are the most complete thing in the way of machinery that we have seen for some time. They take a two foot cottonwod chunk of wood and hold It between clamps against a set of small knives while the motion or the machine seuds out the long thin shavings which are used in the matrasses. Mr. Eberhardt Informs us that nothing beats the cottouwood for excelsior, aud pre vious to using these machines he used to ship It from St. Louis In oar lots. Tlie pleutifuluess of this wood In Saline comity makes it very con venient for the company aud they can manufacture It a great deal cheaper than they could ship It in. This room 30x48, and when the ma chinery is in motion, has an exceed ingly business-like appearance. The engine aud pump room stands just back or the machinery room, and Is 12x43 feet iu size. They aro now using a 12-horse power Belle ville engine, but will soon put in a larger one. Just south of the engine room stands the ware house, 18x32 feet, which is full of supplies. This company have about $15,000 invested in their business now, and employ In the neighborhood of fif teen people to carry on their work. They turn out when in full force twenty-five to thirty mattresses, and from thirty-five to torty springs and cots per day, paying out over 500 per month for running expenses. But a small portion of their salesare made In Salina, as tbey have a good trade out on all the roads, especially south and west. We want new man ufactories established in Salina, and the Journal is always ready to aid them, but we are especially interest ed In seeing our borne enterprises prosper.

Tlie Topeka Commonweatttoat tills morning gives us the following In formation about the rumored "re trenchment" of the Santa Fe, the falsity of the rumor, ami the pro Ksed extension to Salina: Owing to the fact that the announce ment was made public that the San ta Fe had called In a number of lis sutveylng gang and tracklayers, the unfounded and groundless rumor has gone abroad that a policy of re trenchment was to be inaugeraied all along the line. The Chicago and St. Louis papers first took up and magnified the speck they discerned ou the horizon, while the Boston pa lers published at the hub of the cap ital wheel or American railroad owners, reproduced the misleading ami iiamaging statements, giving rise to the query, why is it lhus7 The answer is plain. There Is no truth In the ery or retrenchment. The Santa Fe Is simply shirting Its forces from one point to another to comply with promises for com pletion of certain pieces of track. Here Is a sample Inoldent: After -long and tedious negotiations with Salina, aid having at .ast been voted by Kaline county for the extension of the Chicago, Kansas & Western from Abilene, the eope of Salina have finally en tered into a satisfactory arrange ment with the company to secure location, depot grounds and right of way through the city. So much time has been lost in these negotia tions that it Is rendered necessary to concentrate a large force on this work as the line Is contracted to be Inotteratlon to Salina by November I. It is, therefore, net a matter of seriousness that forces uon a line beyond should be ordered book to complete this urgent pait of the work, as the company will have all of next year in which to complete other parts of the line west and north-westerly from Minneapolis. And it is further notleabie that not withstanding the- published state ments of apprehension that work Is likely to cease on the Santa Fe ex teullon in Kansas, the fact that work Is going forward-on all extensions Is a sufficient contradiction ot the groundless rumor.
