Prohibition In Kansas. . .ToraiA, Kansas, Aug. 11, 1881. To the Kdltor of the bTXJrAirs. The war between law and whiskey continues to rage, a nd will do so till the right triumphs. r The contest has been bitter Crom.the outset, because the friends of temperance have felt that they wwih iin-m... ...wf fight firl hu manity and . because the upholders of the deadly traffic were fighting for their passions or their pecuniary ad vantage. It requires a vast amount of principle, bordering on ."fanaticism," so called, to overcome class of .men who are fighting for their business. As some men of the past who were called fanatics and fools have come down in history as heroes, so also will the cour ageous men and women ; who have worked up public sentiment in our State during the' part few years be honored in the future.'; '. . Prohibition has been opposed at every step by every means at the command of its enemies.' As they were supplied with money by brewers and distillers all through the .West, they have em ployed the best legal talent In the State to represent their side in the courts. At one time one would have been led to belie VD that all the whiskey men were church members, judging from their tear that communion wine could not be head; at another,' that they were all farmers, fearing that they should die from snake-bite for lack of a little whis key. They might be found mourning over , the loss of cologne, bay rum, es sences, paregoric, spirit levels, and other articles containing alcohol; 'and the lack of immigration and depopula tion of Kansas. The decision of the Supreme Court in regard to the scope of the liquor ' law reads : " It cannot be doubted that section ten is broad and sweeping enough to bring within the statute every liquid which, by reason of the presence of alcohol, will produce intoxication. . . ' . . But the Legisla ture never Intended such' a sweeping prohibition. The use of intoxicating liquors aa a beverage was the evil, and the statute must be read in the light thereof." Nearly all the public objectors to the law oppose it from a. "temperance standpoint"! A great many say that they want to see the law enforced, but that "It can't be done, public sentiment won't support lt." Now, who ever heard of a Republican predicting that a Democratic president would be elected 1 or of a Democrat who was betting on a Republican candidate f If such men are found they are looked 'upon aa dis loyal to their party and principles, and are not trusted with the party honors The same rule should prevail in prohi bition movements throughout the coun try ; If a man pretends -to believe that dram sfiOps are a wrong and a curse, he oaght to say so, and exert himself and lend his inflnenee to the suppression of the evil, instead of whining, at the heels of the champions of reform, that '.'It can't be done."' Skbgkant Hmjor. " Trust it Every Time. A grateful patient, living under the shadows of the Highlands of the Hud son, writes to Dr. David Kennedy, of Rondout, N. T. : Your medicine recommends itself so thoroughly that you may hardly care for a statement from me, yet from my own experience of its excellence, and from what I know of its. operation in other cases.

Dr. David Ken nedy,' Proprietor, Rondout, N.T. Wanted Some Issues. Anv Derson or bolitical orsraniz&tlon that has several lively issues for sale may bud a ready customer oy applying to the Democratic party of Wisconsin. The present condition and future pros pect oi tne Bouroons oi mat state are so unpromising - that Congressman Bragg, of the Filth District, has about made up his mind that the old rotten concern might as well be abandoned, unless some new Issues can be invented that will make . the vounff Democracy raJlv round the flag more numerously ana enthusiastically tnan tney, na a the last election. In 1873 the , tidal wave oi Reform struck Wisconsin, and, for the first time in eighteen years, the Democrats elected Taylor, Democrat, over Washburn, Republican, by a Ma jority of over .15,000. Since .theu the party has been beaten at every election. and now the Republicans have all, the rltata officers, aim- owtof eifxht Congress men, and they carried the State - last lull iur uarueiu oy ' a majority tuns lacked only a few votes ol 30,000. Two years asro this fall Smith. Republican, for Governor, had 26,000 majority over James G. Jenkins, Democrat, a popu lar and able man, and last fall the Re publicans carried the Milwaukee dis trict for President by 2,000 majority, while Deuster, Democrat, squeezed into tjongress on tne strengtn oi nis own personal popularity, aided by the un popularity of the Republican nominee. ho wonder, therefore, with this gloomy prospect before them, that Gen eral Edward S. Bragg expresses him self as he did in a recent interview in regard to the dire necessity of securing several first-class political issues. - He thinks thev might steal a little Repub lican thunder with the Civil-service Re form cry Bragg' s idea being of course to reform the Civil-service by turning Republicans out of office and putting Democrats in and to raise a clamor against corporations and in favor of cheaner transportation to the seaboard. Congressman Bragg isn't slow on is sues, ana oiten raises inem nimsen. lie raised one with his own Demo-Con federate party in the House of Repre sentatives a year ago last winter, as Chairman of the Committee on South etn War Claims, when he manfully set his face like ' flint against the whole business. It made him the most un popular man In Congress for the time being with his own crowd, but it made a lively issue for General Bragg. . He also made an unfortunate issue lor his party in Wisconsin in 1877, when, as Chairman of the Committee on Resolu tory in the' State Convention, he com. mitted the party to the wildest theories of finance, and, among other fiat lunatic ideas, he made the Democratic party in Wisconsin "demand the repeal of the Resumption act and that the effort to resume specie payments be postponed until the business interests of the country were prepared, for it." ' It was a repudiation of the old Democratic theory of finance, but the Convention, - under Bragg' s bulldozing, swallowed it at one guipi, ana tne party was disas trously beaten at the polls, as it de served to be. Two years later (1879) the State Convention took the back .traokjepndiated- Bragg's soft-money platform, but were beaten worse than ever before. General Bragg is of the opinion that our present Xarutr laws need revision and amendment, and he suerzests that that subject be added to the cry for a reform in the Jivil-service, the fight asr&inst corporations and the "demand" for cheaper transportation. Possiblv he would go upon tne stump and ex plain to nis w isconsin constituency now flu J .1... .L. ' n.-..My.t.

Gen eral Bnu-2 would have to confess that he voted lor Sam Randall for Speaker of the House, a high protective tariff Democrat, who paokea the btanaing Committee of W ays . and Means with other protectionists, which stifled all n"orts in the line of tariff revision. He would have to confess, also, that his party in Congress and in Wisconsin is not now, nor ever nan ueen, uuuesuy 111 favor of either of the measures he would convert into a rallying cry for his effete party. No, General Bragg, your party in Wisconsin is not in want of issues. . It only needs a hetxso. Chicago Journal. , Politics In Hot Weather. Think of holding State Conventions and Democratic Conventions at . that in Mississippi and Virginia, and an election in north Carolina, at this sea son of the year, when the thermome ters are cavorting around among the nineties! If any new evidence were needed that the South is hopelessly giv en over to politics these circumstances would supply the proof. II the people of Richmond, Va, and Jackson, Miss., were to devote themselves exclusively to fans, mint-juleps and other delusive devices for keeping cool, they would not be able to hold down their tempera ture to the normal condition. . And yet politics is regarded as a tropical luxury, and the people of the South seem to revel in it. The characteristic rhetoric of South ern politics flowed like lava 'in the Richmond Convention, judging by the specimens which have been transmitted by telegraph. ' One old gentleman, in tne simple process oi nominating a can. . didate, boiled over in these terms: '? It is a meretricious progeny of a renegade Democracy this prostitute re adjuster ism P' . If any Northern politician at this time of year should work himself up to the fever-heat required to throw on sparks like that the newspapers of the next day would be compelled to report a death from prostration. But nobody at Richmond seems to have been especially atlected by the super heated conditions which such utterances indicate. It may be that Virginia Bourbons intended to chill the atmos phere by some of the cool things to which thev cave expression. For in stance, nothing could be more refresh ing than to hear the old. dyed-in-the-wool Bourbons talking about "equality of right and equal justice to all men, , and about " elections by the people free from force or fraud." When the Confederate Democracy of Virginia can throw off light, cheerful nonsense of mis aiiru in we aog-aays tne cucub wr- tainiy ongm to oe cooling. The Mississippi Democrats have capacity for politics which exceeds that of any others. The Virginians did not prorong their conference beyond one day. It was hot while it lasted, but there was a manifest disposition to get through.. The Bourbons who assembled at Jackson, however.' were intent upon drawing ont their summer amusement to the longest stretch. Hence the dead lock. Stone's friends Were ' steadfast and Barksdale's friends aggressive. Feathers tone's adherents hopeful, and Calhoun's determined. .

"' I - . - ..--' , ' A; peculiar,' sweetish J smell of the breath; the Surgeons state, is a sure in-; dication of the disease called ' pyaemia,: or blood-poisoning. We are forcibly reminded of this circumstance upon reading In a Democratic journal an, earnest appeal to the party to " do for; the "name Democracy here what the AX.lVtaN Voigress did . for.. it. in the; country at large make it Sweet-smell-! ing in the nostrils- of - the people.") That the -Democracy did. get into .the condition of -a pyaemio- patient, and was near death's door from poisoning of the blood, had ..been suspected be fore, but it is a little surprising to find a -Democratic, journal admitting the fact ; ; j . ,., r , . . But how marvelous it la in all aeri-t ousness, to find journals speaking in such terms of approval of the XXI Vta Congress!. Does it not forcibly illus trate the absolute incapacity, of Demo-i cratio leaders and journalists for ap- predating the state of public opinion In plain truth., the country had never been more completely disgusted by any legislative or other political body with in the memory of living man, than by the behavior of- the Democratie major ity in that Congress i and the disgust has been increasing. ' - Men ' may possi bly differ as to the justice of this feel ing. The fact that it existed and still exists has been- demonstrated: in, the moet convincing manner, and - H is a wonder that a single' 'individual ean anywhere be found, even among that Purblind class; the leaders - of Democ racy, who has. not observed - the' mani festations' of that feeling. " Indeed; many of the ablest ' Democratic jour nalists frankly and 'with great pain have admitted that' that Congress bad brought the party .'into 'disgrace, ' had impaired public confidence in the party, and had gone far to insure a ' Repub lican: victorv. . In scores of articles these journalists sternly rebuked the Democratic-majority for "throwing away the be'stc bance the party had seen ,f or many ye ars." ) ' The failure of ' the Democratio party, in spite of rare political opportunities, in the elections of . 1827 i and ,1878, and its overwhelming defeat at the elections last year, was. sufficient proof , that the behavior of Con areas had disgusted the people. -. At its latest session this Dem ocratio Congress behaved not better, but even worse, k In. financial matters it brought about a needless - and violent pania. - In. matters of taxation it out. raged the.- business! interests of the country by neglecting everything that ought to have been done.-' In politics it insetted " the 1 country by taming oat. duly elected; representatives and by in sisting upon the repeal of -all laws that aim to. prevent fraud in elections.. Havi ing been previously restrain ad by a Re publican Senate, Corigresa disclosed its spirit fully ' when; both --branches were Democratio.'' -Bass, unscrupulous, blind and - malignant partisanship ruled its action, and the people saw It so clearly that thousands of independent and con servative voters, in every State where the voting is free, turned from the Democratic party and voted against itj Tn the face of all these facta; could there be a more absurd untruth than the assertion that a Democratio Con gress has ' " made the' name Democracy sweet-smelling in the nostrils of the people?" J , ' "' ; The one fact which - more than all others makes the Democratio party in competent to gain or to keep power is that it is utterly unable to perceive ox to understand public opinion. . It never yet has - recognized the fact - that the country holds the Democratio. party re sponsible for the rebellion, for the pro longation of the war. and for all the dark and bloody, deeds which followed the attempt to' establish loyal Govern ments at the South after the war .had ceased. It never yet has perceived that the sober and conservative thought of the country was shocked and 'repelled by its repudiating spirit and alms. . In a word, not a single one of the . great, controlling and enduring movements of public opinion within -the past twenty years has been perceived or . compre hended by the Democratio party., , No wonder, then, that it faile to appreciate the great disgust which was caused b j its behavior when intrusted -with law making power. The country will not soon forget the only Congress for many years in which there has been a ; Democratic majority in both branches, its unspeak able stupidity. Its reckless eontempt for consequences, its base and shameless patisanship, its desperate vmdeavor to destroy all parity of elections. - So well does the .country, remember, that it will probably be long before 'we see Another.

Like the dust, of limo,-Jt will not fly .hither ana thither it thus lastenea.. me greatet danger is when filth of any kind becomes thoroughly dried, so as to be wafted hither and thither by the win da. Some interesting, facts are. brought to light by the chemist in , his search into the composition of dust - The pollen of the racr-weed is often found in the up- " per air of cities, far., away from any neios. . ecenc irom a special lactory, with its minute particles, are percept ible tens of miles distant.' An analysis of dust found in - the summer in - the upper part of . a - theater in. New. York showed pulverized horse-manure as a prominent -ingredient. - It is -when particles of - unchanged filth are dried and wafted . about . and then become subjected . to beat and moisture that they are productive of most harm. " In deed, dust of itself, even if not charged with speci rip material, is a great Sri tent. One of the great afflictions of dry and dusty weather is that the lungs necessarily inhale so many particles The mucous membrane of the 'throat and lungs j is 'exposed to the irritant, and bronchial atfections. are often the result. Much that is called catarrh or ranked as a bronchial cold is mechan ical irritation.- The man who lived by the sea because there was no dust there had. at least, one-valuable considera tion as an argument for a sea life. Much of ' the good : that sea voyages do la owing to the freedom of the air from floating particles, as much as to its pur ity of. composition. Horsemen under stand the value of clear air when they sponge the nostrils of their horses, in order to detain the floating dost. It is certain that , men would be wiser., amid eJoedsof dust, if thev would keen their mouths shut and have the nostrils wet ted or protected. In many kinds of dusty work workmen should use such a gauze or other, contrivance as will allow free inhalation and yet detain some of the ' floating- particles. - We recall the case of a man who had worked 'in' a i pi oe-mill twelve years before, and. yet a disease of the lungs showed them to be marked with characteristic SDuta.
