Husiness methods govern men, rather than sentiment. Real izing that Salina lias too many newspapers, anil not wishing to add more to the investments, I have al ready made here in the printing bu-inei-s, I choe rattier to Hell than liuy. With tliin issue the Bai.INK Ciiintv JouitNAi. property, together with all books and subscription ac count' to date, becomes the property of J. I., HrMow, who will consoli date thf JotitNAi. and JlrpuMirnn, thus making for Salina the very best newspaper property ever established in the city. It will concentrate un der one head the buslneB and polit ical ititercstsof thiHCommunity from a republican standpoint, which will no doubt lie fully appreciated by the public generally. I etill have much to occupy my attention in Halloa, and do not con template a removal, but will hence forth dn.p the newspaper feature.

The above Item is an editorial note taken from Mr. Davis.' paper, and would indicate that he was pondering over his past when he wrote it. Wiikn Swan of Topeka, said that he protested against the passage of the CJreeulee bill in behatf of 30,000 railway employees of the state, It might have been well for some friend of the hill to have answered him in behalf of 1,000,000 employees of the farm, work shop, and factory who have been robbed for years past by exorbitant freight ratCB. Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder THE CIIAMOE. For the first time in the history of this country an ex-president as sumed the active duties of president, last Saturday. The inaugural cere monies were the most brilliant ever given an in-coming administration, and thousands of poople from all over the country were congregated in Washington to do honor to Grover Cleveland. President Harrison en tertained Mr. Cleveland and family at dinner Friday evening, and to gether for the second time they rode in the procession. What an illustra tion of American citizenship. Mr. Cleveland's inaugural address was short, but replete with good common sense, and while not giving the public a very definite idea of bis exact views on questions that are before the people, yet in a general way out lined the policy that will likely be followed. It treated of eight sudjects, but twice he alluded to the tariff, showing that this ques tion is etill his hobby. The money question, bounties or subsides, pen sions, the civil service, trusts, the right of BUllrage, and the civilization of the Indians were briefly touched in Mr. Cleveland's own way of gener alizing, but no plan of procedure was indicated by him, or any intimation of how far these reforms should be carried. His address, taken as a whole, is an Americau document worthy the man who penned it, and the greatest of confidence is felt in Mr. Cleveland's good judgment by republicans as well as democrats. Grover Cleveland is a stronger man today than he was eight years ago when be for the first time took the oath of office as President of the United States, and the entire sentiment of his inaugural indicates that he is the people's pres ident instead of a partizau tool. His closing paragraph stamped him as a man to be trusted, and was a fitting sentiment to breath as he reverently stooped to kiss the book of books: "Above all, I know there is a Su preme Helng who rules the affairs of men and whose goodness and mercy have always followed the American people; and I know he will not turn from us now if we humbly and reverently seek His powerful aid." A iikikk review of the work of the Fifty-second cougresss nows that an automatic car coupler bill was enacted into law as was also a National quarantine bill, increasing the powers of the marine hospital service to meet tlie threatened dan gers from cholera, and an Immigra tion law imposing additional re strictions ou immigration, but not suspending it entirely. The Senate averted the bill over the Behriug Sea seal fisheries by ratifying a treaty of arbitration. It also ratified extradition treaties with Itussia and other countries, but still has before It a treaty of-anuexatiou cf the Haw aiian Islands. The opening of the Cherokee outlet was provided for in the Indian bill under a clause appro priating f7,2,000 for its purchase from the Indians, 2!io,000 to be paid in cash and $8, 000,000 in five equal annual installments. Approximate ly, -12.1 House and 233 Senate bills and joint resolutions became laws, making Otto nuts put on the statute books as the result of the work of the Congress. A majority of these measures were of interest only to individuals or localities, being for tlie relief of citizens, for the bridging of streams, for the district of Colum bia, for rights of way, etc. An un usual proportion of the claims bills were for the relief of Southern men. Oi.it Jim Legate Is getting bis new found friends, the populists, into a peck of trouble. Both he and bis daughter have failed thus far to se cure positions uuder the new admin istration, and he is hot. He is tell ing tales out of school, and the re sult is the Capital charges Lewel ling, Close, and a few others with re ceiving boodle "for legislative pur poses," but In reality for influence in the appointment of police com missioners for Kansas City. The Capital' charges are very serious, ami If untrue, the populists will have an excellent libel suit an hand against Major Hudson. What the out come will be Is doubtful, but a party that will take such men as legate iuto confidence and hold them up as leaders, deserve to be brought to time. If the Capital's charges are true, it will be rather warm for some of the reformers In high places. Geo. Maktin soliloquizes as fol lows In Monday's Oazcllr.: "The democrats will not find much in the record of the c ingress that has just ended to go before the people with in 1SJU. With a majority seldom equaled in the history of a legisla tive body, tlie democracy has been wholly unable to accomplish any thing. With a programme deter mined for it beforehand by the cam paign arguments that it lias urged with such fervor against the enemy, it has disclosed its utter impotence to perform a single one of Its promi ses. Aud this, with the sole excep tion of laws relating to the tarill, is not chargeable to a hostile majority in the senate. Fer the house Itself has not done anything that will bear high praise or serve as a party record. The democratic party is a fraud and a cheat." John Maktin was one of the very first to present his credentials for a seat in the Senate after the new ad ministration assumed charge last Saturday. Mr. Hoar said that the credentials just read seemed to be in due form and to eutitie Martin prima facie to be admitted to a seat lu the senate. If there was to be a question as to bis title upon the mer its, the senate could pass upon that afterwards. He moved that the oath of office be administered to Mr. Martin. " The freight rate question cannot be considered a party measure In Kansas, as the fight in the bouse last week over the Greenlee bill plalnjy illustrated. It is more of a sectional measure. Trie Missouri river against tbe state of Kansas, and Kansas won bands down. Between the pops and the interior jobbers Kansas railroads may have a rocky road for the next few years. Kantai City Gazette. Is it not time for our eastern friends to recognize the fact that Kan sas Is200miles wldeand 400 miles long and that the people of central and western Kansas have a right to live and build cities of their own which will create markets within the boundaries of tbe State equal to those that line bcr borders? If you baye made up your minds not to see It, and to forever contest our right to do business on equal footing with Missouri river points, it then be comes our duty to make you play fair, which we will do by the aid of the populist party or any other power that is willing to right the wrong. You ought by this time to realize that a cyclone has swept over this state, and In summing ! tbe ( aware of it. If the wicked corpora damage done since tbe smoke has , tious have reallywreted tbe control cleared away, we find tbe greatett loss has been sustained within the republican party's columns. What caused this dreadful political whirl wind? We might truthfully tell you that it has been forming fur years, livery time an industry has been crushed out In central Kansas j by reason of unjuit discrimination. I a small whirl of dust would rise . heaven word. When efferts have I been made to the proper authorities for reflef, aud failed aa they always j have, an electric Hash woutu Illum inate the surrouudlugs, until from the very nature of things, tbe dread ed cyclone was formed, and tbe de struction came. It bit the republi can parly the severest blow, not be cause as a party they favored such a state of things, but because they were not active enough in correcting the evils, and because they allowed men to occupy high places within their rauks who openly fought every eiTort for relief. Take the fight Re presentative Seatoti made in the house last week against the Greenlee bill. His course has cost the repub lican party votes in this county alone. Men who have in the past aicjed us materially, openly avow they will never vote the republican ticket again. And why? Not be cause they believe less in the funda mental principles of tbe grand old party, but because men who claimed to be republicans stood up and fought every sectiou of a bill that is only just and fair to the citizens of Kan sas as a whole, while every populist member voted for the measure. It is not politics with us. It is busi ness, ami the man or party that will not remedy evils that are known to exist when they are in control of State affairs, will as surely be tramp led under foot, a that they Hw Stop those miserable little flings at measures that deserve careful con sideration, recognize the right of all Kansas to prosper, ami all will be well But if you do tintquickly do so, you will feel the effects of an other political cyclone, far worse than the one already felt, the eddies of which are already forming. Slediie-Hammek Douglass is a great mau now ami wbeu lie is railed to dwell with tbe angels the cor porations will erect to his memory a monument a few feet higher than the Elflel tower. Western I'op.i Call. Why not be more direct, dear friend, aud state what corporation will erect a monument to Mr. Doug las' menory. Is it the corporation that is inti rested in the passage of the Greeulee freight bill that Mr. Douglas so gallantly fought for, or Is it the corporation thai was interested in having no legislation, and suc ceeded in getting a rump house or ganized to prevent it.

Run Tom, run. Ottawa Index. The people of the 31st senatorial district are under many obligations to the Index for calling attention once more to "Senator" Baldwin. Most of them hail really forgotten who was representing this district in tbe Senate this session but it must be Baldwin, as the name sounds familiar. By the way, bow did the Senator scare tbe "varmints out of tbe woods." Did lie get Colorado Ariz to call out the militia, or did Gov. Lewelliug Issue aruiuifesto for tbe purpose. On Monday afternoon the gover nor signed the joint rcsoluliou pro viding for a vote of the people on the subject of Woman SuiTrage In 1691. A large delegation of women were present when he signed the bill, aud there was much rejoicing. Tbe governor immediately preieut ed the pen with which he signed the act to Mrs. Laura M. Johns, president of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Asso ciation, and Mrs Johns presented tbe pen to the sttte historical society. A ciii'NK of wisdom from the Chetopa Democrat: "All in the same breath tlie pops say "the su preme court is a partisau court, but tbe Dunsmore house would have been sustained If we had another judge on tlie bench." Another pop on tbe bench would not make tbe court partisan, un matter if be bad decided with Allen. Fur consistency the pop outfit take tbe palm." The disgraced Col. Hughes, who refused to obey Gov. Lewelliug' or ders, will protiably be nominated for sheriiflliis fall by the Ropubllcins of Shawnee county Manhattan ll'op i R-pHllic. Col.

The corporations have now control of the lower house and as in the last session they will block all beneficial legislation that the people demand, but will cun ningly substitute ineffective meas ures. and thus try to deceive the reo p!e as to their intentions. Next ele-tioti will find the people so well organized that fraud will be Impos sible woe to tbe one who attempts it Union. Does Mr. Cobb refer to frauds com mitted in Saline county at last fall's election? If so, it might be well even at this late date to go over the returns, and see exactly who partici pated in the various townships. As a reminder we will remark that the greatest increase was in strong Al liance townships, so that if, as Mr. Cobb Intimates, fraud was commit ted, tbe people should be made or tbe lower house from Clemens, Legate.

Publlshd by Permission. Years ago when 1 first heard Dial there was, some where In the bleak regions of the wen, n stream of wa ter known as tltc Smoky Hill river, I became satistleil tliat the building uf a great college in that barren re gion was essential to tbe happiness and prosperity or the Americau peo ple, if not absolutely indispensable to tlie perpetuity or republican in stitutions mi this continent. I felt instinctively that the boundless re sources of that prolific region, of and and wild cactus, and the pro digious intellectual powers of the natives, would never be fully devel oped without a large and extensive university, and perhaps not then I had an abiding presentiment that, some day or other, the people of this whole country, irrespective of party affiliations, regardless of sectional differences, and without distinction or race, color, or previous condition or servitude, would rise in their ma jesty and demand a great university in those vast aud fertile saud bar rens, drained by the surging waters of the turbid Smoky Hill. But where should such an iitstutitiou be located? Salina! Tlie word fell upon lin ear with peculiar ami indescribable charm; like the gentle murmur of a low fouutaln, stealing forth in tbe midst of roses; or tlie soft, sweet ac cents of au augel's whisper in the bright, joyous dream ol sleeping In nocence. Salina! 'Twas the name for whicli my soul had panted for years as the hart pauteth for the water-brooks But where was Salina? Never, iu all my limited reailimr, had my vis ion beeu gladdened by seeing the cellestial word iu print. Ami I felt a profound humiliation in my ignor ance, that Its dulcet syllables had never before ravished my delighted ear. I asked my rriends about it, but they knew nothing or it, I rushed to the library and examined all the maps I could hud; but nowhere could I fitid Salina. Nevertheless, I was confident that it existed some where, and that its discovery would constitute the crowning glory of the present century, if not all modern times. I knew it was hound to ex ist in the very nature of things; that the symmetry ami perfection of tlie planetary system would be incom plete without it; that the elemeuts ot material nature would since have resolved themselves back into origi nal chaos, had there been such a hiatus in creation as would have re sulted from leaving out Salina. In fact, ladies aud gentlemen, I was over-whelmed by tbe conviction that Salina not only existed some where but that, wherever it was, it was a great and glorious place. I was convinced that tin greatest cala mity that ever befell the benighted nations of the ancient world, was iu their linvinir passed away without a knowledge of the actual existence of Salina; that their fabled Atlantis which was never seen save in the hallowed vision of tin inspired poesy, was another mime for Salina; that the golden Orchard or Hesperldes was but a poetical syuoiiym for the paper-mill at Sallua. I was certain that Herodtus hat died a miserable death, because in all his travel, he hail never heard of Salina. I knew that if tlie immortal spirit of Homer could lock down from another heav en than that created by bis own celestial genius, upon tlie long lines of pilgrims from every nation of the earth, to the gushing fountain of poesy opened by the touch of Ills magic wand if he could be permit ted to behold the vast assemblage 1 1 grand aud glorious productions ot Great Clearing Sale! n iu Wraps, Underwear.

Yet, ladies aud gentlemen, had it not been for this map, kiudty furn ished me by Mr. Kirtlaud, I might have gone down to my obscure aud humble grave In an agony of desp&ir because I could nowhere tltnl Salica. Had such beeu my melancholy fate, I have no doubt that, with the Isst feeble pulsation of my breaking heart, with the last faint exhalatinu of my fleeting breath, I should have whispered, "Where Is Salina?" But, thauks to the beneficence of that band or ministering anisela who have their bright abodes iu the real estate offices of Saliua, just as the aeony of my anxiety was about to culminate in the frenzy or despair, this blessed map was placed in my hands; and as I unfolded it, a re splendent scene of iiiellablu glory opened before me, such as I imagine burst sjpon the enraptured vision ot the wandering peri through the opening gates ot Paradise. There, there, for the first time, my enchant ed eye rested upon the ravishing word, "Salina." U people will examine, they will find Saliua not only lu the center of the map, but represented iu the cen ter or a series or concentric circles, many miles apart aud embracing alike, iu their tremendous sweep, the fragrant savannas of the sunlit south, aud the eternal solitudes of snow that mantle the ice-bound north. How these circles were pro duced Is perhaps one or those pri mogenial mysteries that the most skillful paleolagist will never be able to explain. But the fact :. ladles and gentlemem, Saliua is pre eminently a central place, for I am told ty men versed in the leariiiui; aud mysteries of the outer world, and in tbe topography of tlie barren regions through which flows the rag ing of the mighty Smoky Hill, that Saliua is so exactly iu the center or the visible universe, that the sky comes down at precisely the same distance all around.

Truly, thy cup or joy Is full. I have been placed on this pro gramme to describe the perse verance aud untiring energy of one of the promoters of this col lege, in finding a suitable location for such ait institution.
