SPECIAL Election Proclamation. Whereas the Board of Couuty Commis sioners within aud for the Couuty of Ford, and State of Kansas, did on the 9th, day of October, 1SS9 convene and make, and enter on their records, an order for the submission to the qualified voters of Ford Comity, of a proposition to issue Five Thousaud dollars (5000) of County War rants, drawn on the general fund of said Ford County, to be used in building and establishing a Soldiers Home at old Fort Dodge. And did order me the undersign ed sheriff of Ford County, Kansas, to make due and legal proclamation of the time and place of holding said election. Now, therefore I H. B. Bell sheriff of Ford County, Kansas, by virture of the authority in me vested by law, and in obedience to the order of the Board of County Commissioners of Ford County, Kansas, do hereby proclaim, and give no tice, that an election will be held in the several voting precincts of Ford County, Kansas, on Tuesday, November, 5th, 1SS9 at the usual voting places therein to vote in accordance with the aforesaid order of Board of County Commissioners upon the qnestion of die issuing of Five Thousand Dollars in county warrants drawn on the general fund of said Ford County, to aid in building and establishing a boluiers Home at Old Fort Dodge. II. B. Bell, Sheriff of Ford County, Kansas. The Cold Suns of Kansas. Topeka Journal. A sugar broker from Louisiana was in this city this week canvassing for bus iness. He made a tour of the groceries and became disgusted. He called at this office and said that Kansas was being fooled on the sugar question; that Kan sas sugar at its best was only uhalf sweet" that a "strong sweet could not be raised under a cold sun."' Incidentally he let drop the remark that he had found that the Topeka grocers were all carrying the Kansas sugar in stock and seemed sweet on it, as it were. We do not think that the Louisiana sugar broker ever visited Kansas in July or he would be a trifle backward in thrusting forward bis obser vations concerning a stroag sweet under a cold sun. Goodbye, Mr. Louisiana, keep a sharp lookout or a Kansas drum mer down in your country next year with samples of the best sugar on earth, grown under the cold suns of Kansas. BY THE WAT. Speaking with a friend the other day concerning the coming of Gilmore and his great band, the question was very naturally asked me, "what will be the price of admission to the Gilmore con cert?" I am not prepared to say was my reply, but think the price of tickets will be one dollar. Of course there are people in Dodge as there are in every place who will think this price out rageous, but let me tell you, as one who has many times heard this wonderful baud, that if you pay your money and go to hear them you will never regret your action, provided you arc anything at all of a competent judge of music. These complaints about prices brings to my eastern to the mind the old story told on an farmer, which is an illustration point. Having gone to New York City on business one day. he was strolling along Broadway, and passing a fancy restau rant about the hour of noon, stopped and soliloquized : "This be a grand eating place; I left home before sun-up this morning and feel sorter tired and hungry; I guess I'll just go in here and eat." In he went and ordered a square meal at once. Now a square meal at "Del monico's" or any other metropolitan restaurant implies much, but the waiter taking the old man at his word, started for the kitchen. After spending some thirty or forty minutes at the meal, the farmer wiped his hands on the napkin and drank the finger bowl empty, step ping up to the cashier's desk he asks, "how much is my bill." Counting over the checks left him by the waiter, he looks up and says, "32.25 please." "Geewhillikins," remarked the farmer, "but that's a little steep, aint it? Well, let me see, I had turtle soup and N. Y. counts, fish, chicken, turkey with cran berry sauce, beef a la mode, lemon ice, celery, vegetables till you couldn't rest, pie, cake, ice cream, a bottle of cham pagne to top off with, gee whiz, boss, but that touches the spot, and I don't know what all I did have; I'm so full I can't breathe. 2.25 did you say?" "Yes sir." "Well, it comes pretty high, but it's worth twice the money, after all. Kin you change five dol'.ars?" Friday evening last I had the pleasure of seeing the charming actress, Miss Charlotte Thompson, in her thrilling play of "Jane Eyre." This was some what a surprise to most of the audience, for they went there expecting to hear her in "Hearts Astray." Her support was very good, and "Jane Eyre" seemed to give general satisfaction. "Jacob," the butler, was present in all his glory, and took immensely. But I am again called upon to say that the same boisterous element were also there; and to say that they were more orderly than usual would be doing them a great injustice. Would that they could take to heart the good advice given by the "Rev. Brockelhurst, of Lowood." Too bad, too bad, that we should be compelled to speak thus. "Straws show which way the wind blows," so, also, do bets show which way an election will go. The other day I noticed two men arranging bets on the election and they were prominent dem ocratsone betting on the republican' and the other on the democratic result, and after the bets were closed there was no doubt left in my mind but that the p. d. thought the republicans had much the best show in the fight. I thought that such a thing as a man being "held up" was a thing of the for gotten past, but only a few nights ago such a thing did happen in the city. The man who was thus relieved of his hard earnings imbibes too freely; he was un der the influence of the ardent on the night in question, and was known by several persons to have had in the neigh borhood of one hundred dollars on his person. -He knew not how or when he landed in the lodgings he occupied that night, but he does know that when he awoke he was much poorer in purse. Do our policemen know anything about this matter? Here is an opportunity to prove yourselves "one of the finest." Wright Doings. Mr. Charles Ball and Mrs. Rena Gil bert were united in the holy bonds of matrimony a few days since. Rev. Shockly preached a very interest ing sermon at this place on Sunday af ternoon. Ben. Tobias visited the ditch camp on Monday. He reports everything pro gressing nicely. Mrs. Sheldon is spending a few days with her husband at the ditch camp. Barney Moody, of Five Mile, was in town on Monday. The voters of Grandview township met in convention on Saturday night at Mount Pleasant school house and nomi nated a township ticket. TUMBLEWEED. Petition. The following petition is being circulat ed through the entire southwest part of Kansas and eastern Colorado, for the signatures of citizens who are interested in the subject matter thereof. Similar petitions are also being circulated in the north and northwest states and territo ries. Read carefully and put your sig nature to the petition when it comes around your way : TETITIOy. To our Fellow Citizens who Represent us In the Congress of the United States: We, .your petitioners, would respect fully show: First. That we are vitally interested is- tue success of agriculture in south western Kansas and southeastern Colo rado, because, in good faith we have settled here upon lands which were of fered to us by the government of the United State3 as suitable for settloment; and we, our friends and neighbors, our means of getting a livelihood and the meanB of educating and providing for the children of our families are abso lutely dependent upon achieving success. Second. That, after bearing more than the usual hardships, discourage ments and disappointments incident to frontier life, we find ourselves achieved, but with unconquered difficulties thick before us, our energies and resources drained by repeated disastrous failures of crops, and without means or encour- Lagemcnt to continue the unequal strug- gle,""uqles8 we may depend upon speedy assistance. Third. That it is proven that at least partial .irrigation is essential to success ful agrjcoluture throughout our bounds, and this, we are conviuced can not be ob tained in time to save our property aud interests unless the government will ex tend its powerful aid. We are satisfied that an abundance of water can be se cured by using the surplus surface water and the available subterranean resources of the river valleys, and that such sup ply may be obtained with certainty, speedily and cheaply; yet the work is of such a nature aud of such magnitude, that to wait for the slow and uncertain process of development by private means will lose us the results of our labors the advantages that may be derived from ir rigation ; because we are not able to hold on much longer under the uncertainties and discouragements attending farming under-existing circumstances. Fourth. That the government hav ing opened to us these lands for settle ment on precisely the same terms and conditions as the lands in more favored localities, giving us only the same acre age, charging and accepting the same price per acre and requiring the same residence and improvement, is under moral and equitable obligations to at least put us in the way to an equality of advantages, since it can do so at reason able expense. As we have in good faith accepted the proffered lands and paid our money and expended our time and our labor upon them, we believe it to be incumbent upon the government to make good the implied warranty that the lands were worth the effort and expense. Fifth. That the territory embraced within the limits described by this peti tion, yield to the government in past and certain future payments more than twelve million dollars in cash.' Sixth. That we believe that but a part of the money thus paid by us into the treasury of the United States, if de voted at once to our benefit, and proper ly expended, will not only make our lands habitable aud productive, but will be the means of adding to the wealth of the nation many, many millions of dol lars above such cost. Seventh. That the government has already expended for public improve ments east of the Mississippi river at least five times as much money per cap ita as west of that line, and as we have neither rivers nor harbors to deepen nor improve, nor coast defenses to provide for, but may, on the other hand, become a garden and granary of the nation, the demand for public expenditure must re main comparatively slight. Hence, as our necessities are great and pressing, and action by the government, to be of benefit to us, must be immedi ate, and, as it is asking but a small part of the money contributed by ourselves, we would, therefore, most respectfully and urgently pray that you will grant us from the treasury of the United States a sufficient appropriation to carry forward to practical success the development of that water supply which is of such impor tance to us,and which will be so profitable to the nation. Farm Better, 'ot More. Salina Republican. The mistake most farmers make is in trying to cultivate too much land. If they would but realize that there is scarcely a limit to the productive capac ity of an acre of land, they would not attempt to cultivate so much, but would do the same amount of work on half the number of acres and realize better re sults. When farmers learn the results of the "little farm well tilled" idea, the mortgages will rapidly disappear from the Kansas farms. One cannot success fully raise mortgages and sunflowers on the same land at the same time. Honest Crlticis. Wichita Eagle: A larse and; distin guished audience assembled at th Crawford Grand last night and applaud- ea with profound discretion what was on the whole a worthy performance. Mr. Beer's revival of Enoch Arden is ascenic splendor. Hoyt's master brush can be seen in the perspective. In the fore. ground Beers can be recognized in the management of detail, conceived artis tically as well as expressively of Eng land's Poet Laureate's best idyallic poem. It was such a production that awed the usual patrons of the Crawford to silent admiration. The cliffs of old England's seashore were wonderfully reproduced on can vass. As an illustration of the progress of the story Mr. Beers must be welcomed and encouraged. As far as colors and ensemblagegoit is the most complete and interesting production ever seen oi this play. The wreck of the "Good Fortune" was the best stage effect ever presented in Wichita. It realized almost perfectly the idea of the gloom and terror of a to tal disaster. Mr. Beers is a sincere and robust Enoch Arden. He has given the production most generous and wealthy surroundings. As far as correctness of scene, expense and implied gorgeous ness of the scenic artists talent, it com pares favorably with the most preten tious production scene on any stage. The company is oue of the most satisfactory seen in the Grand. The specialties were received with much hilarity. GIL.nOBES CHEAT BAND. THIS FAMOUS MUSICAL ORGANIZATION SOON TO HE HEARD IN DODGE CITY. The great Gilmore's Baud, of New York, will be heard at McUarty's opera house, Monday, November 25th. This world-famous musical organization is said to be the finest of its kind in exist ence, and its great head, 3Ir. P. S. Gil more, is the most popular and enterpris ing of all leaders, and has accomplished the most wonderful things in music on a gigantic scale. He was the originator of and executor of the memorable Boston Jubilees, the most stupendous musical affairs recorded in history, with a chorus of thirty thousand voices and an orches tra of twenty-five hundred musicians, with the addition of many novel and iensational features which astonished the world. There is nothing passe about Gilmore; he is riding on the very crest of the wave of popularity now, and his band is the pet musical organization of New York and many other parts of the country. His jubilees mven in New York during the past summer were the largest attend ed and most enthusiastically received mu sical affairs heard there for years. No building could hold the crowds, and thousands were turned away from the three concerts every day for eight days. They were a part of the series of jubi lees the great leader is giving through out the United States in celebration of the twentieth anniversary year of the Boston jubilee, and the one here will be the same. Gilmore will bring his an vils, electric-firiug artillery, special art ists, etc., and will have the assistance of the following celebrated and world-re-nouned vocal artists: Mme. Blanche Stone-Barton, the most pleasing and cul tured American soprano, and Miss Jen nie Dickerson, the famous American con tralto of remarkable European success.

The Attica sugar works, notwithstand ing the many breaks in weak parts-of the machinery,. the unavoidable mistake in not securing a sufficient aud constant supply of water, caused, not from a lack of water, but from the mode ol getting at it and faulty pumps, the unripe con dition of much of the cane used, caused by the backward season, the delays ne cessitated in adjusting the machinery, and other delays which follow in the wake of a business yet in its infancy, show better and more satisfactory results than have yet beeu obtained in the state. Thfe is the more gratifying, because the machinery in the Attica mill, in major part, is of new and heretofore untried models. It Is expressing a well settled conviction on the part of the company when we say that the improved methods in use in their mill here are much richer in results than were really anticipated, hence the satisfaction expressed by the company. Cane raised upon the soil here shows a richness in saccharine matter not met with at any other mill in the state, it shows as high as fifteen per cent, sucrose in some, the average at pres ent being fourteen. Calculating upon the latter per cent., a ton of field corn contains 22 pouuds of sugar, yet the company, from the fiist run, only secure 100 pounds, or a little more, of sugar and from tbirteeu to lifteeu gallons of syrup. As the sale of syrup is not remunerative, and contains a large per ceut. of sugar, it will be tored, and after the crop of cane is disposed of, the syrup will be le boiled, from which will be obtained thhty pouuds of sugar fiom each twenty gallons. Add this to the first niu and it foots up 130 pounds of sugar as the product of one ton of field cane, still leaving a remainder of syrup. The company yet hope, and beliee. through the adoption of wise experi ments aud new processes, to largely in crease the output of sugar per tou of cane. However, should this fail, and no increase be obtained, then the sugar in dustry remains a grand success in its present status and a paying investment for capital. Up to the present time the Attica mill has manufactured a little over 1.10.000 pouuds of sugar, which shows a very flattering output, when it is stated that oyer sixty cells of juice soured and were a total loss, besides about one hundred tous of uncut cane on the ways were also lost. Add to this the frequent stoppages of the mill from various causes, and the Attica plant shows it to be a most suc cessful one and the company wise in its planning. It is not reasonable to think that the second season's run will be a more successful run than has been this thus far? Since Monday noon last the mill has cut at the rate of 200 tons of cane per day, Wednesday night being the largest run, filling 01 cells with chips, requiring 122 tons of field cane to fill them. Wednesday a strike of 13,000 pouuds of sugar was made and another yester day of a like size. The company in making contracts for cane, estimated the yield per acre at not more than twelve tons per acre, and the early variety planted here at uot more than ten, whereas it has run from thir teen to eighteen in all varieties. This surprised the company and forces extra effort to use the crop. The first runs of sugar were not up to what was wanted, but all subsequent runs have proved to be the very best yet manufactured from sorghum, testing 9S. One hundred barrels of sugar were shipped last Tuesday, aggregating near ly 35,000 pounds. There are fifty more barrels ready for shipment and thirty on the reel room floor, and more awaiting the dryers. Thursday night there was 6,500 pounds of sugar run through the centrificals in twelve hours. The sugar i3 of a splendid grain and very light ia color. American Beef Abroad. Western Agriculturalist. The outside butchers away from Lon don and Liverpool want to get the bene fits of the live cattle from this country. The prejudice against American beef cattle Is all gone, and the superior clas-. of high-grade beef cattle we export are eagerly sought after at better prices than last year. The ships are all engaged for weeks ahead and crowded to their utmost capacity. Successful shipments have also been made to Germany, and the whole world will be our market for all the good beef cattle we can raise, but the scrubs are not wanted in any country. They will not pay to ship, and unless our farmers quit raising scrubs and raise only high grades the foreign countries will take the best and leave us the scrub to eat at home. A Santa Fe circular hasbeen issued di recting that the custom in vogue among employees, of making presents to supe riors be stopped. That will make a big difference with the watch trade in Kansas. t iiLaAk,... . .-ij - . 'iks t- - . a&m.
