v r DODGE CITY TIMES. SEVENTH YEAR. DODGE CITY, KAS., NOV. 2,1882. NO. 337 REPUBLICANS MAKING ASSES OF THEMSELVES. Some months ago we staled that the dem ocrats would endeavor to secure a good working minority in the legislature, and tliii prediction is about to be verified. It ia stated that the minority will be at leant 50 members, making 31 more independents or democratx than in the legislature two years go. The editor of the Atchion Cbapion i-f a shrewd and observing politician, and from his psper we clip the following: There are more independent candidates in the field for the legislature this fall, than ever before in the history ol Kansas. They are running on all aorta 01 isues aome as prohibitionists, because the regular repub lican nominee are not sufficiently pronounc ed on that ques ion; aome aa anti-prohibitionists, because the regular nominee are too pronounced; aome aa anti-monopolists, upon the assumption that their opponents are not sound on this issue; aome upon the old, time honored and neTer failing pre tence that the conventions which nominated their opponents were "packed;" some just because they are sure that the destinies of this imperial commonwealth of our will be utterly wrecked if they are not called upon to take a tarn at the rudder which guides it; and some because importunate friends hare demanded that they shall sacrifice themselves upon the altar of public duty. and they cannot resist the demand. The net result, we think, will be that the next legislature will contain a larger minority of democrats and greenbackers than any legislative assembly of Kansas since the admission of the State. In a few districts, the cacdidatea for the legislature -are all republicans, but in most cues where two or three republicans are in the field, the democrats will take adt antage of the divis ion to run in a candidal of their own polit ical faith. They are working the prohibi tion issue very shrewdly. Where the re- publicana nominate a candidate who i not a prohibition!) the democrats play upon the prrjudice of prohibitionists, urging them to bolt; and where a prohibition republican is nominated, they urge the anti-probibi- tionisU to bolt, promising to support either faction, and at the same time keeping a lookout for a chance to run in a candidate of their own faith. The republicans in many districts are making conspicuous awes of themselves by permitting the opposition to use them as cat's paws in this wsy. They ought to see the purpose ol this game, and stop their foolish feuds. It is time that republicans everywhere closed up their ranks and went to work unitedly to secure the old time re publican victory. Mies Pinneo ol Greeley, Colorado, who started out last year to uecouie toe cuaiu ..:., r.mal. rider has ended her short ca reer by poison. The tale need hardly be told for the calling almost gives ine qu. She was a bright, dsring girl, just in the morning of womanhood, virtuous and hap py, but possessed of a romantic turn . As an equestrienne, she won bright laurels; and intoxicated by success she drifted away into the world. Utile by little ah fell from path el rectitude nntil the found herself the mistress of a Topeka saloon keeper. The waa only one step more to take suicide and that she took last week. A man may stem the tide of sporting life for a time, bat where on succeeds, a thousand fail. No woman can go through the ordeal ud live long. Selina Herald. The St. Louti Pott-Dispatch wants tem perance agitators to read th lesson of the fall election, aright, and turn their atten tian lo more practical rtmediis for the evil of intemperance than prohibition. BEECHER. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, being inviied by the Traveler to express bis views of the criticism of the various ministers of New England upon hi recent withdrawal from the Congregational body, writes the follow ing letter: My Deab Sir: I thsck you for the let ter and papers. I have read somewhat largely the eipicsicns of these many and excellent men in regard to my orthodoxy, consistency, influence ard general merit, without wishing for a moment to make re ply, which tou kindly requested. WHEN A DEAD MAN is lying on the dissecting table under ex pert?, it would be unbecoming in him to rise np suddenly and discuss with bis sur geons the propriety of their methods and the truth of the results. It ia not often one can tee himself as others see him, and more than all, as Boston clergymen see him. I am reduced to a palp, but thank heaven, not to ashes. When you sugges. a reply to these, I am sure you c.n have no concep tion of the subdued and enlightened state of my mind. I am bent on improvement, LATINO ASIDE XT OLD KOTIOKS of belief and my standing. I ana carefully putting together the real man, which 1 am now taught that I am. When I get my new personal identity together and in work ing shape, I intend to study theology some where, though in my present confusion, I cannot yet decide whether I shall study at Andover or Boston. New Haven ia nearer, but Dr. Smith has been settled there, and fear a laxity cf doctric in his neighbor hood. Princeton is not loo far routh of me, BCT DB. X'COSH is a christian evolutionist and it would be folly s.ter what I have suflered, to come under the malarial influence of that philoso' pby. On the whole, I decline to study at Park stret, but wherever I may go, I am determined before I die to find a theology which will pass muster at Bangor, at Ando ver, at Cambridge, at New Haven, at Princeton, at Alleghany, at Uberun, at Ubi cago and at Park atreel; then I shall will ingly die. Yours, Hekbt Wabd Beeches. A law in Virginia, passed in the year 1863, reads as follows: "Whereat, many babbling women slander and scandalise their neighbors, for which their poor hat bands are often involved in chargeable and vexatious suits and cast in great damages; be it enacted, that in actions of slander, occasioned by the wife, after judgment pass ed for the damages, the women shall be punished by docking; and if the slander be eo enormous as to be adjudged at greater damages than 509 pounds of tobacco, then the woman to sutler a ducking for each 500 pounds of tobacco adjudged against he; husband if he refuses to pay the tobacco. When a youn; man kisses his girl goor night, about 1:30 a. m., he may have nearly a mile to walk before reaching hia home, and be envies his girl, who, he supposes. jumps into bed and is fast asleep ten min. ntua after he leaves the house. He doesn't know that she must first fish seventy-nine hairpins out ol her head, one at a time, and twist her hair up into bits of paper, so that it will crimp nicely next day, and that be it in bed snoring before she tarn off the gs. If h waa aware of this fact, perhaps ba would leave earlier. The Topeka Capital says of a second crop fspples: A twig from an apple tree eta the farm of W. P. Douthitl waa left at this office yesterday. Four rosy apple hid grown on it, the second crop for the year. Mr. Douthitl, who is a well known lawyer. is confident that this second appl crop is lb result of hi txeaUeat d practical farming. The cow boys have removed five city mar shals ol Caldwell, Kas , in five years. Col. Lister of the ninelienth infantry, it convalescent of yellow fevr at Brownsville. Bill Tkcmpecn, a Texas murderer, es caped from custody at Austin night before list. The new anti-monopoly road, the Nickle Plate, drops into ihe maw of the monopoly. Where will this thing end? Picident Arthur has irsued the cu-loma-ry ihai,kyivirg proclamation. The 30th of November ii the day appointed. Real early rising doesn't pay. Mr. An drews, of Ciniinnati, got np to see the com et, on Monday morning, fell down stairs, and broke her neck. Indiana grew nearly 47,000,000 boshels of whest this year. Next to manufacturing and importing democratic vo'ers, whest etowirg appears to be the great bonanza ol Indiana. An enthusiastic admirer of Jersey cattle recently purchased a copy of the "Life of Ole Bull," and now, whenever he hears the sound of a violin, he goes out behind the barn and bangs his head against the build ing. "If you don't like my sermon, pray what kind do you like?" said a petulant minister to an over candid pirisboner. "Well," was the reply, "I like the kind that drives a man into lbs corner of hia pew and makea him think the devil is after him. When you preach like that I shall be coo verted." The situation in France is becoming sig nificant. The existence of a well organised revolutionary movement seem to be well settled. The members of the organization ar justly named anarchist. Those who realize That anarchy mean in Franc will await future movement with the greatest anxiety. A frog fell into a pail ol milk In a Coa ecticut town, on night recently, and in the morning was found titling upon a roll of fresh batter. A local paper say that the ole explanation ia that, in trying to extri cale himself, be had, by diligent and con' tinuous strokes of his long leg churned the milk into butter. A young man started for a drive of twenty mile with his sweetheart, through an un inhabited tract in Minnesota. At a point about midway of the lonely rrnte, the pair had a bitter quarrel. The fellow unhitched the horse, mounted it, and rode away, leaving the girl alone in the wagon. He evidently gave her credit for being a whole team and a dog under the wagon. A London paper describe a American girl in that city who "wears a gown with a flight of embroidered swallow, beginning on her left shoulder and ending at her right foot; and a wallowa alto fly about herpar- iL" The American yoatb in London it also addicted lo "swallows," bat they don't begin on hi shoulder.
