MYTOM. mVlS county Clerk DOWN AT EMPORIA. The contention it Emporia, yesterday, unanimously re-nominated Hon. Tbomaa Ryan to the fourth term in Congress. There was no special interest in the nomlnation.but some of the cacdidates-st-large and their friends were there and added all the interest there wxe in the lathering. Tbe Peters boom seems to be gathering is a storm cloud, with an occasional clap of thunder and stroke of lightening, and ending in wind like some of the rain storms in tbe west bete, followed by wind and dust. A Mg boom has been started bat it ha not sufficient weight to stand the test. All the telegraphic dispatches are highly colored with exaggeration. Many counties sra rep ented to bare elected delegates f iTorable to Peters but the cooTenllons hare aot been held. Tbe regular contention in Barton county elected Booth delegates, while a side (or snide) contention elected Peters delegates. Peters is not "solid" in any of tbe counties reported for him. His main strength just now is in wind, and his friends stem to be abundantly supplied with the Kansas sephyr In tbe Byan contention seTcral speakers and candidates made short speeches ealogi tic of themseltes and absent candidates. Mr. Ady referred to Slots, Booth and Peters, laying particular stress upon the latter, bis favorite. Each candidate was applauded at the turn of favorable remarks, except when the enlogism of Peters was made, when the noisy demonstrations of his friends wa manifested. A small knot of friends wtre Todferoas when bis name was mentioned. We cite this circumstance tothow the binder on tbe part of tbe Peters men. Oil tbe other band all of the candidates and their friends hate formed a combination against Peters. The energetic strife his friends hate in angurated baa produced a determined opposi tion. He will be unable to form an alliance with the strength of any ether candidate. There is no community of feeling between Peters and tbe other candidates. Booth's location stands much in bis fa tor. He will be able to join forces with any of the candidates with Hanback, Holt and Per kins, with Benedict, Hackney and Baker, or with Sin's, Kelley and Morrill, His strength is in the strrngth of these allies, and he has inditidaal strength in tbe tariooa parti of the State. His friends were much encouraged by their visit to Emporia. There is no bluster by any of the candidates' friends except by those for Peter. The higb-toned-part-your-bair.in.the-middle-fei. lows are all for Peters. Tbey are young mostly, and hate a large banking capital of wind, bluster and cheek. But lying snd impudence won't win. We don't went any body in Ford county to be deceited by the Peters' bluster. It will soon peter out. Tbe Henry Booth base-ball dob oi Lar- ned, and the S. R. Peters base-hall club of Sterling, played a match gme at Bterlieg on Tuesday. The score stood Booth 36, Peters 23. The boys were much elated oter their victory. Tbey went to Emporia to play a match game there, but the rain pre vented any game. They returned yesterday to Nickerson, and engage in a match to-day. An Ojhkmh Wisconsin special saVS a great scarcity of cattle in tbas vicinity, a beef famine is feared, mat larmers nave rsiaxl nnlt a few cattle on account of the scarcity of corn. And en effort will be made to secure importation of cattle from other points. That sad spectacl, a father trying to res ffl hi. itanrhier from a life of shame, was witnessed in Lincoln last week. He was successful, and led his erring daughter home. THE BAaXROAD FBOM SEDG WICK CITY TO DODGE CITY. C F. Miller, a civil engineer in charge of the surveying party runaiog a line tor a new railroad from Sedgwick City to Dodge Ci y. wal in the city on Monday. The surveyors' camp is at present eighteen miles east of Dodge Citv. The distance from Sedgwick City to Dodge City is 146 miles. The heavi est grade between these points is 26 feet to tbe mile. The proposed railroad will crosi (be Arkansas river 18 miles east of here and six muei east of the Mulberry. This l.ne will come through Ft. Dodge and will join the main line of the Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe Railroad near the stock-t ards in this city. The boilding of another railroad to Dodge City will be of great advantage to this sec tion. The building of this line, though done in the interest of the Santa Fe road will practically shut off the building of a nail which would likely run striking a point 30 miles soatb of us. As tbe Santa Fe com pany has recently negotiated heavy loans, we presume the line between Sedgwick City and Dodge City will be built immediately. This line will be of immense advantage to tbe shipping interests, as a shorter and mure practicable route is obtained to Kansas City and St. Louis. There is a saving ef st least 50 miles in the distance to Newton. Sedg wick City is situated between Newton and Wichita. By the proposed line of road Dodge City secures connection with St. Louis by tbe wsy of tbe St. Louis & San Francisco Railroad. We regard tbe new line of practical importance to Dodge City, and one which will likely shut off other roads which would probably prove detri mental to our interests. The intelligence that the Atchtson.Topeka & Santa Fe Koad had succeeded in their lean for $10,000,000 in London at 6 per cent, quickens the railroad pulse in Atchison. Tbe fact that this gigantic corporation had laid 08 2,000 men from active employment in less than two weeks between Atchison and Old Mexico, was seriously considered. In conversation wita Contractor J. S. Fiske. who operates the entire improvement force in Atchison, he stated that although he had not received express orders for such action tbe intimation was that he might prepare for wonderfully quick work, as one half of this amount was going for ballasting, bridges, road-bed and such improvements. James Vick, tbe great reedman and fiorist of Rochester, New York, died, in that city, on Monday last, of poeumonia. He was an Englishman by birth, but came to this country when only five years of age. He wis printT by trade, and worked at the case with Horace Greeley. In 1850 he en gaged in the business which he subsequent ly followed. He was probably tbe best known florist and seedsman in tbe country. He died in bis sixty-fourth year. The Cottonwood Falls Leader says the California salmon placed in the Cottonwood river, at that place, about two years ago, are now three to four inches long and exist in considerable numbers. Several have been caught in the last ten days, by the boys, with small hooks. Southern Kansas is now afflicted with a lot of fellows who circulate among the far mers, making wonderful bargains with them for groceries and other supplier, which they agree to supply at wonderfully low figures. It is needless to say the farmers get swin dled. Within the past few weeks, 40,000 head of cattle have been driven into Lincoln county, N. M., from Texas. They were turned lose on the Pecoee river. FAIT HAWDLE ITEMS- rrom the Mobettie Pan Handle. The rain tbe fore part of last week teems tj have been general throughout tbe Pan handle. Excepting perhaps a few pasin?, inconsiderable showers, this was the first rain that has fallen in the Wolf creek country for three years J. N. and T. W. Morrison, firm of J. N. Morrison A Bra, have recently disposed of their cattle to Alfred Rows, the trade having been closed lsst Monday. This is a choice brand of cattle, being all graded stotk. They are sold for 2,000 head, range delivery, the price btirg $t5,V00 $22.50 per head. And now the freighters have grievances in the fencing ot the range between Ibis place and Dodge City. The fence of Loo Cramer, on Clear creek, compels them to make some thing of a detour besides giving them a stretch of thirty milee without water at or dinary sessens, and at rainy times a par ticularly terrible place to pull through. It Mr. Cramer would persuade himself to put in a pair of bars and let the teams pass through, ws are satisfied the gap would be closed after them, as the trains are in charge of responsible men. TwoofCreetweU's men had a little sport lately. A buffalo bull had gotten away from his herd, and the boys spied him, of course. Those thing they don't spy are not worth mentioning. Tbe high price of beef determined them to pcavess tbe wander er, although their means of offence and de fence consisted only of lariat and a pocket knife. One of tbe boys threw his lariat on the buffalo's head, tbe other caught Mm by the heels and they stretched him out; then one of the horses ws left to hold the rope while his rider cut the big animal's throat with the pocket-knife. These animals are not killed by tbe thousand in the Panhandle any more, furnishing profitable sport to a small army of men. We have only heard of one, or perhaps two small herds in the country the past winter. It would have seemed a great pity to kill them for tbeir hides alone (worth ess than those of ca'tle), only that their destruction hsa been a great stride toward the solution of tbe Indian problem. Mr. Hsrtweli Martin, of Prosper, Rice county, wriies as follows, to the editor of tbe Sterling Bulletin: "I claim that I hate been obedient to this first command 'Be fruitful and multiply.' I am sixty-three years old and the father of twenty-one children, and I bate fed and clothed four step children, tweoly-6re sll tild. Nine by my first wife; nine by my ecoad wife and two slp children; three by my third wife and two step children. If yon cannot beat this record, yon may put it in tbe Bulletin ; if you can beat it honestly, throw this in the waste basket." A Wichita blonde beauty fell headlong into the Little Arkansas, last Monday, while fishing, and lost her pateatheir, when it was discovered that she was bat a plain brunette. Her sweetheart refused to wads In and pull her out after be made the diseoveny. A breach of promise suit is pending. In the Stale Contention for the nomina tion of I oar- candidates for Coagisssuiui, tbe First District will have 144 delegates, the Third District 133, and tbe Second District 89. One hundred and eighiy-foar is a ma jority of th Contention, audit will be seen that tbe First Gwgressjonal District has within forty of that number. Although there are 360,090 farms in this country, cotavaaption is so much greater than the supply, that meats and breadstnjs are almost at war prices. Tbe United States is growing by ritiss at the expense of iU rurU districts, and there is a great need of a new impetus to faming..
