At the solicitation of many Republi cans, I hereby announce myself as a candidate for State Senator, from this district, subject to the action of the Re publican Convention. H. S Gkanoer. STATE SENATOR. As this question is now forced upon the the people of this, the 38th Senato rial District it behooves Republicans of the whole district, and especially of Phillips county who are very likely to name the man. to look well to their interest and that of the. whole people. The names of two men, both well known to the people of the county, are before you to ask lor vour suifraires The no- sitiou is one that should be filled by a man of - large public , experience .and good abilities, conservative m-tendencies and a man of unquestioned integrity and honor, a man in regard to whose vction, the question tOf-vital impor tance Uiere can be no doubt, ana we believe in the person of H. S. Granger oi Areaae townsnip wd nave a canai date who will, to the fullest measure come up to our standard; of he whom will best serve us as a State Senator: n man who is thoroughly identified with the leading industry of this section ox Kansas, that of agriculture ; a thor ough, wide-awake, business man, well povted in public affairs, and never con nected with any questionable business complications that might disqualify him from voicing the will .of the people on the moral questions that -are almost sure to be before our State legislature. BLAINE'S POPULARITY. If a plebistcite of the Republican party, could have been ordered on the nomination, Blaine would have received 400,000,000 out of the 04000,000 Repub lican votes, against all other candidates. The opposition to him came from the shoulder-straps ; the rank and file were nearly all for him, and it is the rank and file which furnish the votes on elect ion day. . The same popular sentiment that nominated him will elect him. Any resentment among politicans born of chagrin just at this moment, will vanish into thin an before the steady march of popular feeling. No man who is at hart with the Republican party can hold out against the masses of the party. Those who have worked against Blaine will be influenced by the prompt and hearty support made by President Ar thur the very moment it became evident 'that Blaine would be nominated. "This example will be imitated with a cotagion which will sweep through all. the fac tions and extend from Maine to Cali fornia . Maine will Btart the ball in Sep tember, Ohio will keep it moving Octo ber, and it will grow into an avalanche in November, to which every northern state and at least West Virginia and Delaware among the southern states will contribute in strength. Chicago Tribune. ... . ... ; 'Conversation 7,000 Ue Lob. A member of the staff of the London Telegraphist recently paid a visit to the office of the 1 ddo-Kuropeah Tele graph Company. Londoi;, for the pur )x)se of. experimenting. Ho made his visit at a favorable time, when he could get full use. of the wire; and this is what he aiiyxi The clerk In charge of the wire, Mr. Balgrove, .intormed us that we were thnuigh to Emden. and with the same ease with which one "wires" from the city to the West End. we tusked u few quentions of the telegraphist m.tbe Gcr man town. When we had finished with 12raden, we spoke with the same ldullty to tho gentleman on-duty at uaespa. in n low seconds we were through to Hte x L.,;n yj il (Tche. ran). T. II. (Tenerau) said "call Kurrachee." and in less time than it takes to write these words we gained theattention of the Indian town. The operator at Kurracbee put us through to Agra, ana to our asionisnmem the signal did not fail, and we chatted pleasautly for a few minutes with the clerk on duty there. To make this tri- umnh of telegraphy coniolete, Agra switched us onto h other line, and we were soon talking to a native.telegraph istattbe Indian Government Cable Station. Calcutta. At firs the operat or "at the otherend of the wire" could not believe that he was in direct com munication with the English Capital. and he exclaimed in Morse language: "Are you really London?" " Truly this was a irreat achievement. Metallic communication without a break fiom 3n. 18 Old Broad street, London, to -the telegraph office in Calcutta! 7,000 'miles of wire! The signals were excel lent, and the speed attained was not less than twelve, perhaps. fourteen, words per minute. Industrialist. Contrasting Candidates and Parties The situation. seems to be this: There is povv a contest between Blaine and the men whose candidates were not nomin ated at Chicago. ' But Blaine is not run ning against the men wfeo were not nominated. By and by the Deinocratiu party will nominate a man who will be running against Blaine. 1 he men who3e candidates were not uommated will be gin to contrast these two candidates, and from contrasting the men they will finally get to contrasting the parties, and then Blaioe will get. them aU.-fCol.
