THE AID BUSINESS.
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.

From in'ormation of a reliable character

the Arkansaa Kifer, the nonh side of which
