This a f peculalve age In which
we live. Husiness methods govern
men, rather than sentiment. Real

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.

Latest U. S. Gov't Report
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

and Kansas won bands down.

Kantai City Gazette.
Is it not time for our eastern

and that the people of central and
western Kansas have a right to live

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

party, but because men who claimed
to be republicans stood up and fought

It Is doubtful if an extra session of

in any benefit. 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

Does Mr. Cobb refer to frauds com

greatest increase was in strong Al

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
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
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

Yet, ladies aud gentlemen, had it
not been for this map, kiudty furn

Had such beeu my melancholy fate,
I have no doubt that, with the Isst

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.
Oh. beautiful Salina! The Eden
of the Plains! Thrice blessed art
thou. This great iustitutioti, which
is to civilize this wild and wolly
est, ami ironi which are to go
forth Influences whicli shall tell
throughout the laud and be felt
through all coming time and etemi
ty; an institution which has a cur
riculuru second to none of Its in
ferlora, and a football team which N
the pride of western Kansas; this
great university has beeu built lu
thy sacred precincts. 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. And shall
I betray that trust? Never! Rather
perish Salina! Perish the paragon
of cities Rather, let the freezing
cyclones of the bleak northwest bury
it forever beneath the eddying suuds
or the ragiug Smoky Hill !
