TWENTY-SECOND YEAR. VOL. XXI. NO. 50.
t ' A Patriotic Address.
jl Hon. Chester L Long, who was adver
ft tlsed to speak here on Tuesday, failed to
" appear, owing to sickness, which de-
tained him. His place was filled by Hon.
jb S. S. Ashbaugh of Wichita, who is meet
s' Jng Mr. Long's appointments during the
? lattei's illness.
i A large crowd assembled in the opera
h house, the building beiug about two
fc thirds full, and while there was a disap
pointment over Mr. Long's absence, there
fsraa certaiuty none over Mr. Asiibaugh's
fffpeech. The meetinir w-hs the largest
rheid here this season, and the enthusiasm
jfnlly met all expectation.
The meeting was called to order by J.
A. Arnient, who placed J. C. Baird in
J the chair. The chairman introduced the
I speaker, which was followed by applause.
Mr. Ashbaugh complained of his voice,

needed. He acquitted himself with one

presentation of facts. It was just such a
tpeech as needed in this hour of patriot
ism. ?" Many ladies were in the audience, and
they listened attentively. Frequent ap
plause interi upted the speaker. Delega
tions were present from all pans of the
county, and a more appreciative audi
ence never assembled in the opera bouse.
1 Mr. Ashbaugh said if his voice failed,
the people must take his good intentions
and vote the Republican ticket. He re
ferred to the siuking of the Maine and
the loss of 26G of her crew, the begin
. wing of the end of the 400 yeais of
Spanish misrule in Cuba and cruelty to
the inhabitants of that island.
Dewey, who was in the Hong Koug
harbor, by rule of international laws,
sailed out of that port, upon the high
aeas, forced to meet the Spanish fleet
and he met it before breakfast.

be carried out Western Kansas would
have few members of the legislature.
Ford county would have none; but would
be attached to several counties which
would form one legislative district. The
Populist candidate is pledged to that
platform. His election means the carry
ing out of that platform. The speaker
advised the election of the Republican

posed inimical legislation.
The speaker told an amusing story
of an Englishman inquiring of a train
boy which train ran to Heavenston. The
boy said if you take the train you are

speaker, in addressing the audience said,

Could Have Done Better Than Mc
Kinley and Secretary A leer.
Probably the worst jolt Gov. Leedy
and other populist orators who have
been abusing President McKinley and
Secretary of War Alger have received
is the one administered by Col. Hani
C. Lindsay, of the Twenty-second
Kansas regiment. Col. Lindsay was
appointed colonel by Gov. Leedy. Hii
regiment was stationed at Camp Alger.
He is, therefore, in a better position
to judge of the condition of the camp
and the treatment of the soldiers by
the national administration than is the
governor who has not been further
east, since the war broke out, than
Kansas City. In an interview pub
lished at Topeka Col. Lindsay say:
I am a democrat, but I am a McKinley and
Alger man with all my might. I say that it
does not make one bit of difference who the
democrats nominate for president m ISi-0, Mc

McKinley's management of the war has been
masterly. It has never been surpassed in tht
history of the nation. It never will be sur
passed. And it's the same w ay with Alger. Nc
better men than McKinley and A'ger could
have occupied their respective positions.
It may be that there has been some misman
agement in this campaign, but it has been by
men far below McKinley and Alger. I don'l
want to reflect on any of my superior officers,
because I am still in the army. But if then
has been any lack of food or necessary supplier
it is due to the incompetence and chicanery of
The rations which the men in my command
had were (.ood enough for anyone. While in
camp every man had a loaf of bread every day,
besides potatoes, bacon, beet every third day
and beans. When on the march or traveling
we were Issued the regulation traveling ra
tions, consisting of hardtack, canned beef and
canned beans. The mon complained about the
canned beef, and I myself don't think it was
any too good, but they were only obliged to eat
it two or throe times during our enlistment.
The bread which was furnished thsm in camp
was just as good as any baker's bread in To
peka, and the loaves were of gi nerous size.
Recruits cannot make their rations go as fat
as experienced mon. Taey don't know how tc
taUe care of what is given them. Ladies used
to call at the camp, and the boys would give
them hardtack by the bushel for souvenirs, anc
then there would be a roar when the hardtack
ran out and there was nothing to eat.
But the boys who have been serving in the
Kansas regiments had better not comDlaln

The Soldier Boys.
Much anxiety is fclc about the return
of the 21st Kansas Volunteers. The
Hutchinson News of Mouday ayc:
Before takiug the train last night for
Lexington, Chaplain Woodward received
a telegram from Colonel Fitch, of the
21st Kansas, stating that the boys would
leave Camp Hamilton for Fort Leaven
worth, next Saturday, the 24th.
The probability is that the regime ut
after arriving at Leavenworth will be
held no longer than possible, and that the
companies will be sent on to their mus
tering places at once. Granting them
all the time necessary, it is the opinion
that the Hutchinson soldier boys will be
home by the flistof October. Prepara
tions are being made to give them a
rousing reception worthy of them, and
iu the next two weeks the plans for the
good welcome home will be carried out.
There has been considerable discussion
as to whether the boys aie coming home
on a furlough or 'forgood." it is un
derstood that after arriving at Fort
Leavenworth they will come home on a
thirty days' furlough, at the expiration of
which they will return to Leavenworth,
when they will be mustered out of ser
vice. But however it may be ordered,
the boys will soon be at home again, and
Hutchinson people will give them a right

la Good Coaditioa.
Secretary Alger, who inspected and re
viewed the troops at Camp Hamilton,
found the condition of troops excellent.
Surgeon General Sternberg praised the
division hospital. Secretary Alger said
the government had always done and
would continue to do all in its power for
enlisted men. He declared that the citi
zens, instead of finding fault with the
government, should lend their country
assistance by helping the soldiers all they
could. This sentiment was warmly ap
plauded, and the Secretary thanked the
eltiseae of Lexington for the good done
in furnishing dekcacies to the sick.
General Breckenridge spoke 'next and
paid Secretary Alger a high compliment
as being the most tender hearted Secre
tary of War this country had ever had.
Ho declared that the Secretary was doing

Rev. J. C, Miller, D. D., president of
Emporia college, delivered an address on
christian education, and spoke of the
financial needs of his college. He re
ferred to the lack of iuterest in christian
schools, colleges and9 academies. The
importance of christian education was
urged. People treat the importance of
christian education as a trivial matter.
The advantages of christian schools is iu
evidence in all parts of the country. The
beginumg of our christian education
came from our forefathers, who landed
on these shores 400 years ago.
Dr. Miller uttered a grand sentiment
when he said that from the standpoint of
patriotism this must be a christian nation.
Like the fall of Greece, it shall be so with
us if we do not have God in our educa
tion, and christian school where moral
ity is taught. From the standpoint of
patriotism alone we need the christian
No other school than the christian
school can teach morality and religion.
The State school is not geared to teach
the christian school. The moral charac
ter that is not grounded in the christian
religion is no better than the Stoic char
acter. The State school is not adjusted
to reach the heart, but the mind. It can
not teach christian things. Any educa
tion, said Dr. Miller, that leaves out God
in its curriculum io defective. The State
school cannot tench christian ethic.
Dr. Miller spoke of the establishment
of the Emporia college in 1SS2, and of
its financial troubles, like many other
Kansas Institutions, The school has 100
students, who mnko a preparatory study
for a theological course. The college is
not self-sustaining; it owes a bonded
debt and the professors are not paid up.
A financial scheme is being pushed for
ward for the benefit of the college, and
that was the purpose of Dr, Miller's
presence, to devise the financial means.
Our Presbyterian friends are not behind
the Methodists in suggesting plans for
funds and in carrying them out. Churches
and church institutions cannot be carried
on without money. When the people
learn that God invented money for the
benefit of the church, contributions will
be more liberal.
This afternoon Rev, Wm. Westwood
was installed as pastor of the Presbyter
ian church of this city.

meetings is large.
