Tbe aid business in western Kansas is en gaging considerable attention . Got. S: John is criticized in some qnarte is for accepting from Jay Gould any mosey for tbe object, We ha?e already spoken with sufficient pos itivenese on th's question to make oar views known. We have said, and say, there may be indif idual case of eufiericg in thi couo try, but that if there are, ocr people are able to take care of them. In this positkn we are endorsed by every man who values truth above policy. Now, if Gould will feed any sufferers who chance to be so from sickness, ourp.-oplewillbespraed such trou ble. There hare beta some cases of sutler ing in all new sections of Kansas, and If each is not true cf well fettled Matte, wbat are poor houses for? Bat oar people are not able to ran poor houses now. The dan ger of deception in this matter is to be ad' mitted, but is there not deception in every thing the? Wa-Keenev World. DO JUST AS HE PLEASES. The following from Thursday's Chicago Tribune sounds like some one was Retting terribly frightened : "Gould is rapidly teach ing that point where he can do just as he pleases with the lailroad of this country. There is no combination or railroad com pany powerful enough now to thwart him in any ofhiidesigrs. There seems to be but one way ic which Gould's sway might be broken, and that is by tie Chicago roads namely, tbe Burlington, Bock Island, Northwestern, Alton, aod Illinois Central joining together and making an offensive and defensive treatr agtinst Gould. Thrse roads, with the lakes back of them for an eastern outlet, and the Grand Trunk and Baltimore A Ohio as allies in the east, and Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe s an ally in the west, could inflict such damage npon Gould and his syndicate as would make their investments highly unprofitable." A CANADIAN WEATHER PROPHET. Pbof. Vexxob, the Canadian weather prophet, tells wbst he knows about the weather to come before the winter months are over. He has the prestige of accuracy in Canada, and has lately been making a slu if on United States weather. He writes that those who talk about a mild winter reckon without their host, lor although January has been mild, February looks black, and very icy-breathed. His prognostication) are for Canada, New York, and Northorn elites and his wintery February, should it come as predicted, will be likely to blow its frosty breath, pile np its snow drift, and hurl its ice-shaats far south. According to this an tht riiy a heavy snow is to fall on the 2d or 3d of February, drifting and causing railroad blockades. The cold spell will last four days, and then come rain and slush up to about the lSlh or 16th. The ICth will bring another heavy enow-tall and drifting and blockading. Between the 20th and 25ih a second cold spell will set in, and give very low ther mometer reading. Heavy snow falls are predicted for the 17th arl 21st of March. If these things are to come to pass it is too early to throw away ulsters or Iblok about spring suit. Hobk snow has already fallen in the mountains than during the whole of last win ter. It averages ten feet deep on the range, and tbe heaviest snows are yet to come. Min ing operations will bedelaved about a month later than usual, bnt there will be abund ance of water all summer for placer mining. An abundance of rain throughout Kansas may also be looked for in consequence of the supply of snow in the mountains. Every thing promises well for a prrsneroos sea on n I88O.-E1. SPEAKEVILLE BRIEFS. To the Editor of the Times. Tbe News saya "This article has been signed by over one hundred of 1 ur promi nent citizens." It refers to an article in contradiction cf the Times' article on the destitute. We do not believe any such thing as we were present at the meeting of the re lief, and at tbe time of "Bob's" reading the article in the Time?, and he influenced a few of the Germans to sign his reply. The first autograph attached was John Smith, the dutebman that kissed II. M. Clark last fall at tbe time of Clark's 'deleat for surveyor. Smith Is op for office, and Clark says it de feaieJ he will kiss John, John's family and the dog. Our prospects are better for our poor and sneering, as Bob is operating with Jay Gould, and if they get acquainted we think Gould will donate freely. Oar typo lost his bottle lastevsning, got mad and went home without it. If any atrangrr had been in town Sun day aod not knowing what the people was trying to do, he would have thought that Dan Rice's show was ii town, teeing so many people in so many different shape some standing on their heads and some ly ing; on their backs, trying to read the Newa The railroad company is scooping in the pasi business scooped au editor ont of one, and he is s id.

From in'ormation of a reliable character it is learned that, as soon as spring opens. Jsy, Gould will at once begin the work of extending the St. Louis, Kan -as and Arizo na to Pubelo, running up the south side of the Arkansaa Kifer, the nonh side of which is now occupied by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. It was first intended to make Wichita tbe terminus of the St. L., K. and A , but at the recent meeting in New York Mr. Goull made it known that he would at once extend the road. Globe-Democrat.
