Unblushing Greediness.
Mr. Emi-ry, n member of the House
from Douglas county, has introduced a
bill into the legislature to extend the
boundaries of his county across the
Kaw ovtr into this and Leavenworth
counties, taking the rich bottom lands
all to herself: Under any jcircum
stances this rapacious greed would be
inexcusable and ill-mannered. But
when it is remembered that so far ns
our county is concerned (and we be
lieve the same of Leavenworth) we
have been at the expense of keeping the
whole district of country proposed to
be taken from us during past yisars, and
receiving no return from taxes on the
land, and now that the railroad .is to run
through this land nnd it soon become
.taxable, Douglas steps in and says : "I
will take possession of this valuable
bottom and reap all the profit fioui its
ownsi ship, and no 'thanks to you for
Jiaving kept it at vour own expense so
Was ever a more shameless attempt
at injustice perpetrated? But we do
not believe there are men euough in the
legislature to gire countenance to such
a fraud. From Topekn down the Kaw
should not be crossed by county lines.
Northern and Southern. Kansas" are
already namd, known and districted,
nnd there is no need of making confu
sion in the matter, even asi lo from the
unblushing impudence of the attempt.
Our neighbors of Ltwrence have the
University, and itfis all right; but if to
give them this has excited their greed,
and if the securing the railroad has in
flated them, we propose that they be
taught som? decemy, and be mad lo
respect the rights of others. If a little
good fortune causes her peoplo to desire
all, we think they should be taught that
modesty is a virtue not to be ignored.
But Douglas is ambitious. She wish
es to extend her empire, become so
strong as to control mal'ers of legisk
tion, and then say to the smaller coun
ties of the State: "Now do as wj want
you to, or you shall have nothing !"
c ui.c.ij upjiose mis measure on ev
ery ground, of right, justice and oxpo-diehc-.
Our County is none loo large
now, and jat ata large poriit'OiJUt,
railroad running through it, is coming
.uW iuriei. 10 make our burdens of
taxation lighter, we protest in the stern
name of justice against any such wrong.
We have had the burden to bear; now
e bnouia reap the reward. He who
would rob us of this just right, is "fit
lor treason.-stratagems and ipoilb." and
no oelter than a highwav robber.

"fraud" of electing a U. S. S.nator

wis pet and patron-a mere personal

about th fraud of attempting to wrong

favors the unjust kcheme of plunder.

not be permitted to win. Douglas

MW The Seventh Regiment had a
grand reception in Leavenworth on Sat
urday. And they deserve it all. They
have fought nobly. Many of their old
comrades lie in the last sleen on thpi
bloodied battle-fields of the South.-
Their deeds are historic. Their hero

flection of Senator.
As our readers well know, we have i
nol favored tlie electioi of n U. S.
Senator this winter, because, under ail
the circumstances, we did not reyird it
rts the best policy. But we have never
doubled the KririHtv of an election
should it take place; for the precedents
in other Slates, we believe, settle this
question. We believe the time for an -
..lotion l.nn1.l ! .fefinilelr fixed br
law, just a. the day of election for the
people is fixed by st.Vule. This would
I save all trouble and auanolirur over the
But the Legislature has seen fit to
go into an election, and as a good citi
zen, until the time for an election is de
fined by law, we are bound to respect
and submit to the action of that body,
whose assembled wisdom ought lo out
weigh our individual opinion, so as to
cause us to yield the point, although
our opini m itself might remain un
changed. We have one objection lo the elec
tion of Gov. Carney; we do not know
where to find a person to fill his place
in the gubernational office. As a Gov
ernor he and all Kansas may bo proud
of his record. It is one against which
even the hatred and malice 'of bifer
and iclc: ilets enemies can find no fault.
This of itself is enough to stamp his f
oflk-i'il acts whit praise. If he should
make as good a Sen-.lor ns he" hns a
Govi'inor, Knnsas ought to have him at
Washington by all means.
We hear a wonderful outcry about
'fraud' in thi matter. Well, who is
dcfrnuJed ? The people ? To say
that is hogging the question. A por
tion of the proplc may prefer another
man; but all cannot have tk!r first
chok e; but thai does not make otit n
case of fraud. Who is defrauded ? If
it is the people they can easily make
it known and there ts na need of the o! nutting nnU strengthening the ftictuls

note in the Stale engaged in the edify- J Move than two years ago they were iti-
iug business of howlinj? over this mat-
tcr. One of them has an office received
through Gen. Lane worth two thousand
dollars a year, and next to nothing to
do. Another is under obligation to
Lane for an office worth over thirteen
hundred dollars a year, aud nothing to
do that we can hear of. The third has
a good office, which pays well, but re
quites souio libor. These three men,
all receiving fat salaries from Gen.
Line, or by his influence, are the very
men who cry out 'fraud !' 'bought up!'
'swindle! mone !' and the like. There
is a good old Bjok which. contains this
first pull the beam out of thine own
eye, and ihou shalt then see clearly lo
take the woteoutof thy brother's ero!'
Certainly the virtuous indignation of
these men will not have much effect
with the people. There is an adage
that the man who has the stolen goods
is the ouo who cries "Thief!" the
loudest. And tho prcsont inslance
looks very much as if he who -handled
the largest 'pile' of the 'spoils' was the
loudest to cry 'fraud !'
We are pleased to see our friends of
the press in luck; wo wish them all
well; bat they -should not denounce
every one who will not consent that
they shall have all that remains and ami
aaautun that may come Iicreaftcr.
Our own opinions nre'unbought. Wre
have no money from Gov. Carney, and
no 82,000 officcsfrora Gen. Lane, and
we would nol giro a fig for any man's
opinion who was bought up.eithcr with
cash in hand or a fat effier not a fig.
They might howl until doomsday, and
the howling would have no weight with
us; because they are paid lo do it. Like
the hired mourners at an oriental fun
eral, who care nothing at all for the
dead, but lament for pay, theso men,
having no reel causo of complaint, cry
u.e toudcr lo get up an appearanco 0f
inuignalion. But their wailing is just
as heartless -is are tht- cries of the hired
mourner at a pagan funeral. It is all
"sound and fury."
Will the Election Stand ?
Ct rlaiuly it will. A franchise is not
annulable. There is not a precedent
'ln l,,e st"7 of tho Republic where
nu cieciion nns ocen set nsido. Until
a time is fixed by law, any tim is legal
for an election. Besides, tho election
ought to be fixed the year ptevious, so
as to give the Senalor elect timo to pre
pro for his duties.
Sublime Impudence.

"Fraud !"'
This is rim ciy of those who denounce
the election of Gov. Carney to the Sen
ate. These men are all in the interest
of Gen. Ltno, nnil they each one know
lhal their "patron saint" never did a
straight forward, honest thing in politics

do it by fair voting; but fraud was in
the man, and he could nol keep it from
leaking out. Like a barrel of molasses
fermenting, it oozed out of itself.
There is not a man in Kansas or oul
of it, who h s ever heard Gen. Line in
a private caucus, that does not knoie ho
is always for trickery. He delights in
gaining a point by stratagem lie seems
to think no victory is complete unless
it has been gained by some kind of in
trigue. Brought up in the lap of the
most profligate portion of the old Dem
ocratic party, he imbibed all its bad
features, its low cunning, its corrupting
practices, and, unfortunately, took in
none of its virtues unless it be that of
dogged persevernnce.
Now these are facts facts that his
friends know know best of any, for
j they have been familiar with them. For
men in the interests of such an individ
ual to cry out 'fiaud' against any one,
is like a harlot preaching virtue. Its
insincerity is only equalled by its im
pudence. It is Sitan turned teacher
of righicousness. But beneath the
counterfeit angel's garb, the cloven foot
projects its direful length, uncovered by
a scrap to hide its base deformity.
Union leagues
Theso were organized for the purpose
Utiluted. The moving motive for their
organization was a noblo one the ob
ject the best that could engage tho time,
talent and labors of a patriot, except he
were in tht army.
But when Union Leagues, forgetful
of the great object for which they wero
called into being, become mere political
machines, aud by dabbling ia party
politics and personal squabbles, thus
becoming disunion instead of Union
Leagues, they will loso their influence
and be left lo die the death of an unfaith
ful servant by the people.
We see by the ,Cnnr,-.,i:,T ' '

ed into the SenatorHl contest, and after
denouncing the legislature, has expelled
oil ils members who voted for the joint
convention Iy simple resolution, without a
written charge or any kind of a hearing !
e venture to say that the reign of
"liorder Kuffiamsm" in its palmiest
days presents no case which will more
than parallel this ! Who ever heard tell
of such a thing? Common decmcy,
leaving justice, precedent, courtesv and
right out of liew, would have indicated
a less hasty course and a fair trial 1 But
such was nol the caso.
The thing over-rcache itself. The
bitterness of spirit shows malice and
hatred, and a lack of eveiy element of
Union. What is a Union League worth
when it sows the seeds of discord, nnd
becomes a mere political club for put
ting this m-.n up and pulling that one
down? Its noblo object is lost, and it
i useful no longer.

What is Specie ?
A question of no small moment has
been recently deciJed by the Supreme
Court of Massachusetts, defining the
meaning of the teim specie. The case
was this :
A gave B a note payable in specie.
At maturity B. demands gold nnd sil
ver. A refuses to pay in coin. B sues
to recover in gold or silver. The case
conies before the Supreme Court.which
says ;
"A judgment in a suit upon a no'e
must be rendered for a certain slim of
money, expressed in dollars ami cenls
Execution must issue for this sum, with
costs; nnd the amount is to be collected.
If we were to add to the amount of the
note nnd interest a further sum for ex
ample, 100 as a piemium on specie
the execu'ion would still be collectable
in money.
If the officer could seize a
sufficient amount of gold and silver to
pay the execution and costs, he would
pay to the plaintiff the amount of his j
debt. It the uctenuant s goods stiouiu
be sold at auction on execution, and the
putchasers should pay in specie, the
same result would follow. If land sho'd
be set off on execution, ils value may
be so changed by the condition of the
currency as (o affect the in'erests of
the parties materially. It may be that
the judgment will remain unsatisfied
till gold shall, in merchendise, sink be
low par. This would again affect the
interests of the parties and the value of
the judgment. The weekly fluctua
tions of the gold maikel are constantly
operating in the same wav. But theso
are matters which are beyond the teach
of courts of law. They involve values,
and sometimes equities which no iudi-
v. ' J '
cial tribunal can adjust or regulate. AH
