m i SSE IjBAVElirWORTH WEEKLY TIMES: THDBSPAY JTJ1VY 20, 1874. ' WttM intcs THUESDAY, AUGUST 20, ISM. Ct7a0TJS I0GIC. The Atchison Champicn seems to take con siderable comfort in the reflection that the Eecchcr bus'ines will at least do one thing very effectually, and that is, that it will be a death blow'to the woman suffrage move ment; and the C7mpiWa reason for think ing so is, that nearly all the witncses in the wc arc prominent woman suffrage agita tors. We are satisfied that the editor of the Champion believes what he says, but we are at a loss to know by what kind of logic he is able to reach tucli a conclusion. The Cham vim doesn't think the affair will give a death blow, or even a serious wound, to the rlirUinn relizion. and yet both the principal parties in the affair are shining lights in the church the one the foremost pastor of the world, and the other, one of this pastor's most devout parishoners. Now, if the scan dalous conduct of these persons will not harm the cause in which they arc so prominently engaged, pray why should the cause of woman suffrage 1 killed outright lcatic certain prominent suffragists happen to know and tell of this scandalous conduct. Is it so much worse to know of other people's sim than to commit the same yotirx.li? "Wc do not lieleivc that this affair will 1 a -death Mow'' to either the church or the suffrage movement, but whatever harm may result from it will fall more heavily upon the cause of tho: who committed the offense, than uion that of the: who told about it, for if it was wrong for these suffrage people to gosipalout the matter, it was cer tainly a greater wrong for those religious people to give the occa-iou for such gossip. WORSE AND MORE OF IT. The Chicago Tribune has a good deal to siy about Mrs. Tilton's letters, which one o! it's energetic correspondents has just giv en to the public praises them as models of composition, and compares them to the mo-t famous love-literature of the world. Wc have read these letters, as published by the Tribune, and at the risk of being considered devoid of sentiment, and unable to appre ciate the more delicate expressions of the tender passion, a" regard for the truth com pels us to say, that if wc were a woman a sensible woman wc should rather le con victed of the serajw with liceelier, than to be held up to the world as the anthorof this senseless mess of drooling twaddle. UNCLE SAM TO THE RESCUE. The grasshopper sufferers of Nebraska will all, or nearly all, le provided for by the General Government. A late dispatch from Omaha tells us that Gen. Ord has received instructions from "Washington to employ as many of the suffering inhabitants of the Loupe Valley as can le made useful, in supplying material for, and building the new posts at the head of the Valley, work on which commences at once. Only the lower .Loupe Valley was devastated by grasshop per, and its inhabitants will nearly all re main to work on anil supply the post. It would lie a great blessing to Kansas, in this emergency, if we had some public work in progress in the State, upon which a few thousands of the destitute settlers could be furnished employment durimr a part of the vimin: Fall and Winter. "A SEED WART." It is intimated that even Houston, of the Leavenworth Commercial, one of the mot .li reprint? ex-office holders and demagogical politicians in the State, aspires to the ap pointment of U. S, Senator. Though Hous ton has inanaccd to control some sort of a public teat as great a length opime na any V V?. . - . 1 aaI' w man in nansas, ue is an raucuim "")" sonage and belongs to the clement that blmiilrl lie itmored entirelv. The men who "cncrallv secure appointed -positions owe their success to their political versatility or f-crvilitv, and contribute more towards the corruption and demoralization of ilitics and public men than any other clxss. The fact that Houston U a reg ular" ecd wart" of this character is sufficient to condemn him hi the eyes of all who ap preciate personal independence or feel an interest in official purity and honor. Let all the old jwlitical hacks and leeches le cast aside. Milton Count y Citizen, August J, 1873. Our friend Gilmore undoubtedly wrote tlic above More the Great and Good Deacon had made hi "tripod" "luincli bug" and "Pope's Courv of Time" record. Gilmore, fake it back. FOR SCHOOL 8OTEBIBTENDENT. .The name of Mrs. K. V. Johnson, of this city, has been mentioned in connection with the nomination for Superintendent of Public School, on the Kepublican ticket of Leav enworth county. Wc most heartily endorse this suggestion, and are convinced that the party could not do a wiser thing than to nominate Mrs. Johnson ; she is competent, worthy and iwimlar, and wc lielieve her name would add strength to the ticket. She is an energetic, intelligent woman, with a finished education, and would make a most efficient officer. Pahsos IIaislax's paper the Washing ton Chronicle is getting altogether too frisky for a religious journal. Head this : We have no hesitation in saying that the anticipated r-tatement of Mculton In the Beecher-Tilton scandal will be totally un worthy of Iiclief. Any man that will delib erately make a statement in time for publi cation in the evening papers, when it is well known that all the morning dailies ex pect it, is not entitled to either respect or credit. Lous Walker, of the Neosho Valley Ktgis'cr, is a candidate for the State Senate, from the seventeenth district, with very flattering prospect of success. We know only one citir.cn of Allen county that we would rather vote for than Walker, and that is Walker's other and better half. LWE OUST FOB GRASSHOPPERS C S. Wilder writes to the Lawrence Stan dard fiiil he put lime dost on his fruit trees and 'vegetable, and the grasshoppers did net'tbljch Ihcm, while in the adjoining lots eyerjtiirg was devoured by them. This is a fact worth knowing. TiiEChicaso iiaiiars consider it a note worthy fact, that nearly all the ladies who are putting forth such commendable efforts to establish a "-Home for Homeless Women,'' in that city, are publicly identified with the woman's suffrage movement.

Evans and wtBfcoMaState GCTwatien aTo- y,tat.krf. i -' t onnoRm Mr. Collins, who has just been- west, in- J forms us that the ironuer is a aisiressea 1. oking country, even now. The small grain was not good, and the hot winds and grass hoppers have entirely destroyed all the com and vegetables. Hundreds of settlers will be obliged to leave the country or starve. The fact is not in the least exaggerated, we are convinced, and something must be done to render assistance to the unfortunate set tlers, who have ventured into the us.tri.ed irKt for the enmose of securing homes. It is true, some of the old States have this year suffered seriously from drouth andgraashoo pers, which teaches us Western Kansas is not more liable to these devastating agencies than other portions of the world. But we shall not here enter into an extensive de fense of Western Kansas, as we think it un nMT to those who are acquainted with the condition of other States at this time. The ioint is here: Cannot the Government hcln our frontier? It seems unnecessary to. nroeiire the usual aid. though it is as much needed now as it ever was, but cannot the law requiring actual settlement be so abated astoallowhomcfteaucrsanu pre-enipiors iu be absent from their claims until spring, without fear of molestation? Wc mast cither have something of the kir d, or we must pre pare to send aid. There is plenty in the coun try to sustain us all, if it can only be distri buted, and we hope those in authority will take prompt action to release the homestead ers from their thraldom until spring, and allow them to seek subsistence where it can be found. Hundreds of settlers have placed their whole dependence on sod corn, and sinrv iliat is entirelv destroyed they must almiilr lx in a sad condition for want of food. "Manv will doubtless lie unable to get aw v without help, lew people who have r..it lieen eve witnesses to the facts can even imagine the struggling destitution of many people who venture to tnc irom ei civuu -tion. Will our influential State lianers look at this matter and put it in a light that will plirit immediate action? Jt is our opinion that notliing more important can now de mand their attention. Mrathingltn Repub lican. Already Tim Times has re-icatciliy called attention to the condition of affairs on the frontier. We have laid the case before the public, and have brought it to the alien tion of the Government. There is but little that the Government would have power Id do in the premises, though it may, per hau. render in some assistance. The State however, i abundently able, herself, to take care of her afflicted citizens, and that she will do so. there is no rexon lo doubt. Lib eral contributions may be expected from the citizens of the older portion of the Stale and the Legislature may be safely counted on for a generous appropriation. MIGHT HUBT HIS PBIJC ABIES The temperance people of this city have at last discovered the real character of Deacon Houston, and have found that on the temp erance question, as well a3 on every other, he i trying to carry water on IotIi shoul ders. Tiie Times has never pretended to be a temperance organ, but when the ladies of the temperance organization asked u, last week, to make a notice of their State Convent! on, we did it immediately. They made the same .request of Mr.Houston at the same time, but the notice did not ap pear in the Com-nercial; the ladies called Ills attention to the fact, when he said he had forgotten it was very sorry, and wonhl attend to it at once ; again it did not ap-' pear, and again the ladies spoke to him about it. Not being able to lie out of it any longer, he owned up that he had not pub lished it It-cause lie was afraid it might in jure hi primaries! The ladies say they have taken the mask off the Deacon, and haveexioscd his hypocricy. At their meet- in" vesterdav thev handled him without gloves, and resolved to send their proceed ings hereafter to Tin: Time forpublication. They say they have n use for hypocrites.

Phillips has lieen a public man for the Iat fifteen years, and during all that time his integrity has never been ques tioned ; although constantly before the pub lic, no breath of suspicion has ever rested upon him. During the past year and a half he has been in the Congress of the Lnited State, and during that time his record has lieen without a blemish; his enemies have been unable to point to a single act which will not licar the lest of the closet scrutiny. 1). W. Houston, a3 the serviceable tool of Pomeroy and Clarke, was made United Slates Marshal of tin State a io-ition that pays six thousand dollars a year. He went into office a poor man, and when re moval, at the end of three years, made oath that he was worth ninety thousand dollars. We call attention to these facts merely as natters of history. Facts they are, and have never lieen contradicted. Which of these men would the people prefer as their repre sentative, and which would most likely be chosen by a convention opposed lo corrup tion? Xo comment i necessary. THE PBIDE OF THE STATE. Owing to the misfortums that have over taken certain portions of our State this year, it may be necessary to ask Congress for cer tain legislation in the interest of the afflict ed settlers. If your imagination is strong enough to enable you to think of Deacon Houston as a member of Congress, just pic ture to yourself the figure he would cut in the Xa'iona! House of Representatives, as he would "take up his tripod" and deliver a learned dissertation on "quinch bugs," illus tratcd, here and there, with glowing extracts from "Pope's Course of Time." Such an ef fort would do more to make the people of Kansas feel proud of their State than did the great Civil Right, oration of Senator Jacob Winter. For Secretary of State. Editor Times: You will confer a favor by giving publicity to the following resolu tion, which wa fnlly dissusscd, and almost unanimously passed, at our regular Repub lican county convention as an expression of our appreciation of the character and cervi ces of the gentleman alluded to: Wiiebeas, The name of Calvin Kcaaoner, a resident of Osborne county, has been fa vorably mentioned in connection with, the office of Secretary of State, therefore, colnd, That we cordially endorse him for that position, believing that he will effi ciently and honestly discharge the duties of the office, and that in his nomination onr county and frontiercountry will have ap propriate recognition. Fraternal ly yours, Jorrs A. Bourse, Secretary County Convention. THE "WAX OF BACES The reports that come to us from the South vinivniin "the war of races' in that sec- tion, must be taken with a great many grains of allowance, for k must be reraeBi- bered that the press of the Southern State is almost entirely in the hands of negro haters; that the Associated Press despatches from that section regarding the conduct ot the negro arc sent by his enemies, and often manufactured for political effect; and that there are not more than a dozen Republi can journals, all told, to give the negro's side of the political troubles. The stories of the riotous conduct of the blacks, with which the telegraph ha lately been burdened, are not wwthy of credence.

"My notion of a wife at forty," said Douglai Jerrold, "is that a man should be able to change her, like a bank note, for two twenties." It is raid to be a paor rule that will not work both waya. The proverb say "silence give assent." A distinguished aeronaut lays "ascent brings silence." It was "darling Gweorge" when a bri dal couple left Omahaj-it was "dear George" ai Chicago; at Detroit it was "George;" anu wuca iney reacnea itiagarj rails it waa "Say, you."

The following card Irom the Governor cf the State, km s:t up for yesterday's issue, hut unavoidably crowded out: Topeka, August 12, 1674. To the Public: 1 1 is useless lo deny Ibe fact that a great calamity has overtaken the people in some parts 01 the .Mate. 1 be corn crop of many of the counties has been entirely destroved bv grasshopper?. This is especially Iru: in tbe west, where the country has been new-settled, and where ihs people are illy prepared to bear the loss. In moat of the State the wheat crop was ex cellent, but the settlers of the past year have raised no wheat and many of them have been relying upon their corn for sahuttence through the coming winter. It is feared that in pome localities -ome of tbe people will itiQer for the want of the necessaries of life unless some mean can be devised for their relief. The legislature h;s placed no funds at my disposal which cm be ued for that purpose, hut 1 hope ti tc ab'c to aid in carrying out some plan hereafter to be agreed upon, which will avert Buffeting and want. The first thing lo I e dcn, however, is to obtain fall and reliable statistic from the localities most severely atlleed, and I take this method of suggesting fcr Ihe convenience ol the county authorities of the Various coun ties, as well as fcr cur information, that the boards of county commissioners take imme diate ptepi to ascertain the exact condition of sjTaits in their respective counties. Every family in each of there counti-s should be visited and a careful inventory made of their condition and amount of available effects. A rynorsi of this should be forwarded to the Executive othce, with anchsaggentioes as the commisMoners may see fit to make, as to the means to be employed for obtaining tbe relief needed. An investigation already made ia some of Hie counties, ba shown them to be in much belter c:ndi'ton than wa at first supposed, and it ia hoped that like inycsturalicna throughout the sections effected, will dissi pate in a great degree the feata hitherto en tertained. As before intimated, I am not clear sa to the means which should be employed to re cure the needed relief. Oa one point, how ever, I am clear: Kansas may be poor, bat she can and will tike care of her own needy. Thomas A. Osbokjt. The Prince of Wales.
