DODGE CITY TIMES.
DODGE CITY, KAS., NOV. 2,1882.
REPUBLICANS MAKING ASSES
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

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

rise np suddenly and discuss with bis sur

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

not to ashes. When you sugges. a reply to

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,

folly s.ter what I have suflered, to come
under the malarial influence of that philoso'

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

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;

of fresh batter. A local paper say that the

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.
