Wichita Eagle. ; . Don't fret about Kinporia, old man. We are getting aloug tolerably well. The statement, by whomsoever made, that Emporia has "become a regular rum hole is simply false. Only one man tliat we have heard of has openly tqteniptfiT to violate, the law, and ke found it pretty . expensive amusement.

We have no objections to your encouraging the whiskyltes to violate the law all you please at homo, which is the direct effect of such paragraphs as the above, but we shall not permit you to misrepresent Emporia. The decline in the whluky business here is a noticable feature Emporia is a kvw-abidiag town.

THE DUTY OF NEW YORK KEFUBLICAKS. The present week has thus far devel oped nothing in the situation at Albany to justify tlie hope of an early cessation of the stubborn hostilities in the New York legislature over the senatorial question, and if the Republicans of the Empire State maintain their present reputation for political stupidity for many more days, the public will become fixed in the belief that a competent boss would not be a bad thing for the party to have. There is no doubt that popu lar scT'timent has buen very largely with the administration in the ' fight be tween the President and Mr. Conk ling, and the best friends and most ar. dent admirers of the latter regard hi resignation from the Senate as a culpa ble blunder which has fatally marred his brilliant record. By turning over the United States Senate to Democratic control, and then entering the field in person to secure a vindication, be for feited the regard of his constituency, and it was only proper that the Republi cans of Now York should manifest their displeasure by relusing to return him to the " seat which ' be surrendered without any warrant to justify his action. But we Tail to see how the administration or the Republican party at large, has been licneflued by tlie course of the wv CiUWoi UIf-breed in concentrating their forces upou Depew. who Is recognized as being in sympathy with the inonop lists, and whose election would render the hope or future conciliati-.in between tho divided tactions of tlie party ex tremely precarious. The plain 'duty of the legislature is to select two of the most able and distinguished Republi cans in the state to fill the seats vacated by Messrs. Conkling and I'lalt, and we believe there are meu in the great Empire State whose high standing in the commonwealth would command the support or Stalwarts as well as Half breeds on score of their fitness Tor the positions and their records- as true and tried Republicans. We believe tlutt the popular veidict in the case or Mr. Conkling remains un changed, and we are of opinion that the great niass of the Republican party would be averse to his return to the Sen ate with the declared purpose of antag onizing the administration. But while this Is so, there is a strong feeling against the ascendency ot the clement which Depew is alleged to represent, and the impression prevails among many fair-minded Republicans that his defeat would not be a bad thing for the general Interests or the party. . We believe that tho only solution of the problem ia the selection ot two strong, capable honest Republicans, whose de votion to the party would enable them to rise above all narrow considerations or factional strife, and who would thus command the endorsement of the rank and file ot the party, who have bo sym pathy with the aims and purposes or lobbyists, ringstera or machine pol itic! sua. .

New lork Herald: A western wife Is said to have noUQod her husband that having become a Buddhist she by authority of her new failb had divorced him. Here ia a sweet new thing in di voree that will be t-agerly clutched at sight by other women and a great many men, for in a country where any one may change religion without losing caste there will be little hesitation about embracing Buddhism if by so aoing . one may cease . em bracing an uncongenial , partner. : We fear, however, that when the new ex cuse for divorce ia carefully looked into it will not appear as enticing as at first. Buddah, indeed, did forsake his newly wedded wife, but it was because he loved her so much that ho feared he could not sufficiently love the- many In tellectual virtues to which he desired to devote himself; modern divorcers, how ever, leave their partners because they do not lovo them . enough. To this last named class Buddhism offers no conso lation, for while it might enable thm to stifle- their consciences to the extant of getting rid of an old partner, it absolute ly forbids the taking of a fresh one and a religion as mean as that is one that nobody with divorce tendencies iwill have anything to do with. - that all the saloons or that town were ninninsr in open defiance or the amend ment.

Winfield Courier: We heard of a farm er the other day looking for a money loaner to pay off a $700 mortgage which bad two years yet to run. As this was a little unusual, we made Inquiry and learned that two years ago with the above borrowed money he had purchased calves. The other day he sold the outfit, now two-year olds, paid off hit indebtedness and had aix or eight hun dred to again buy calves with.

It is to be hoped that the agitation of the question of affiliat ing with the Mahoue party will be car- ried on in a spirit of candor and fair nest, and that the verdict of the conven tion Will be accepkal in good faith. There is evidently an honest difference of opinion u this quetioM among the Republican leaders In that stale. They should nil rocoirnlxo the need ' of harmony and the -importance of settling their ' disputes before they begin a campaign which promises to be or con siderable Importance in Us Influence up. on National as well as Virginia politics.

THREATENED 8TRIKE. A New York siccial to the Chicago Tribune gives currency to tho fear en tertained in certain quarters that the country is on the eve or a series or strikes among operatives throughout the United States which will permeate every industry oT magnitude. The opinion is expressed that the recent strike among the brewers or New York was intended aa a sort of forerunner in the movement. but for some cause their lead was not followed. A circular was issued a few days ago by a well known detective agency and sent to all the leading offi cials of the various railroads throughout the country, to the effect that the agency was in possession or inform ation that most comprehensive strike is contem plated on or about the 1st or July by the whole force of loeoinotive engineers ; that the arrangements for the strike were be ing, rapidly perfected ; that they might possibly delay the movement until the first of August, but that a strike for a ma terial advance in wages had been deter mined upon which, from its far reaching effect, covering every railroad line, trunk and branch, in the country, would not fail of being successful. This strike. It Is believed, will carry all the working forces upon the rallroadt with the engln and is believed to bo so thoroughly organized that their employers will ha helpless.

The merry, good hearted AMERICANS IN MEXICO. Judged by the dispatches that from time to time reach this country from our sister Republic tho only Mexican news ia about Americana. This is quite grati fying to our national pride, but it should also be very satisfactory to Mexico. The oldest nation in North America is in much the same condition that the great west was a few years ago. It is wonder fully rich in natural resources, but to properly develop these. immense amount of capital la necessary. . and Mexico has little or no money to invest la great enterprises. Eastern money built railroads to the west, put steam boats on western rivers, erected mills, stocked stores, and ; did every thing that money could do toward helping western ' promise to develop into performance. Aa a result our great west, not long ago a -wilderness, Is now tho wonder and admiration of the civilised world. Now that elbow room is becoming scarce In our own new country Americans are pressing into Mexico, and aa most of them carry mon ey with them Mexico ia in luck. There is not another country ia the world that will return so much for a little. Be shies Cwrtile-soil -aad-rich mines the country has one resource of which the west was always bare alio baa a large population which ia well distributed, so that 3abor . k. always within mwo. The two countries are fortunate In their acquaintanceship t each can offer the other what ' most it needs, and neither can prosper without benefit to the other. A great deal bf American money may lie wasted in Mexico, for the Yankee has not yet learned that there are people who do care at alt for things that he esteems highly ; but in the long run the returns will be sure and the benefits mutual. 1 HERB AMD THERE. - A medical scientist says that a garter will cure cramps.

It is very questionable whether Gover nor Crittenden promoted his popularity among his Nodaway county consti tuents by respiting the Tal bolt boys until the 22d or July, thus disappointing immense crowd which had assembled to witness the hanging. The culture of the average Missourian is of that high order that when he rides twenty miles to feast his eyes upon the elevating spectacle of a public execution, the natural impulse is to resent any avoidable hitch in the published programme. me largest purchase or land ever made in the world by a single person was that completed on Friday last, when Hamilton uessou, a prominent manu facturer or Philadelphia, took a deed from the statu of Florida Ant 4,000,000 acres situated north of Lake Okeecho bee The amount paid is not published. but it was supposed to be about two dollars an acre in cash.

Madison News: Mr. Jesse Martin- dale, brother to Wm.

It is stated that the Gordon house, at Topeka has been sold to Mr. Bonis, late of the Tefftor $52,000. Mr. Gordon start ed the house in the time of tlie early set tlement of Topeka. He has always kept a good hotel. We hope the same may be said or the house under the Burt is regime. Sugar mills are going up all over the state, and the culture of sorghum prom ises to become a prominent industry in Kausas. In this immediate section, however, the saccharine interest sec ma to bo limited to the production oi taffy by local politicians, who have aspirations in connection with the fall canvass. Two Parsons lads, Howard.

Thus was the utter extermination oT the American In dian unfortunately averted. - The Commonwealta and Capital, at Topeka, have locked horns over the ques tion of syntax.

Eureka Herald : The increase in the number of csttle in this oaunty ia the past year as shown by the statistics we published last week is very giatifying.

' What is still better the class of cattle that make this addition aroof a superior or der.

A very, remarkable thing is related ef a Lawrence man who one night put an eye-stone which is a small shell taken from the head of a crab into his eye in order to remove a cinder which had got into it and was paining him: In the morning the cinder Itad disappeared. So had the eye-stone. He could find noth ing of them, searching high and low. He wondered if he hadnt lost his eyes, too. For years it was a mystery to lum where that eye-stone had gone. Lately ho began to feel a bard substance at the end of his finger. He remembered tho eye-stone and tho truth began to dawn on him. The Btooo had slipped down I behind his eye and worked its way into his finger. He showed It to a friend, and his friend thought it was a wart. But he was not convinced, and as it was growing harder and coming nearer the surface, ho went to a doc tor. The doctor looked at it a moment and then pro nounced it to be a wart And the maa is still inquiring of all his friends, if they have seen an eye-stone anywhere around. A WILD FANCY.

IXQSRSOLL'g WEAKNESS. ! In a "Breakfast Table Discussion,' published in the New York Graphic, one or the disputants indulges in the following vigorous criticism of Cot. In! soli's lectures: 'I To sav that the Christian body. through all its life, post aud to come, has had, and will have some very rotten members, from Pope to parson, is simply to ssy that it is composed, hero on earth, or very weak human beings, always lia ble to go wrong ana ao wrong. But weir doing and going wrong hardly comes from obevine the Ten Commandments. or believing in the Sermon on the Mount or devoutly ssying Our Father. Ami here is Ingersoil's weakness. He makes nippant attacks on acKnowieagea wesK spots in tbe christian . church, attacks that are only puny eciioes translated in to smart slump oratory of some of the attacks of very able men. There are. to be sure, mysteries in uuristian le selling the 'trinity, lor instance ana mys teries there will always remain on this side of the grave. But are mysteries confined to religious teaching? We live and move a life of mystery. What is life? What is death? What is erowtb?

It is well known, though not generally admitted, that toward the close of the war Mahone was not only admitted to all conferences with the confederate commander-in-chief, but thai he also be came oao of the few whom Gen.

LOOMS & LOOMS, LAND PIRATES. How the South, Is Abused by Caserapa loaa Sfrehooporn. " Cbrresnondenee of Mew York Tribune. : One of the worst features of the ex isting condition of things in the south is to be found in the character and methods of a large number of men who sell goods in tue smaller country towns aud vil lages, and at the cross roads and landings almost everywhere. These men are mostly foreigners or northern men, but of late they are, in some parts or the country, a few native southerners taking up the same kind of business, as good southern citizens now and then confessed to me with shame. These merchants, or storekeepers, are as rapa cious as pirates, entirely destitute of principle, conscience and honesty. Observe, I do not say that all the small merchants or dealers in .. tbe couutry C laces in the south are of this character, ut the class is a very large one, and it has its representatives almost every where. These men are growing rich faster than any other class in the Southern states. Tliey sell goods to negroes and poor whites at 200 or 300 per cent profit, and much of the time they simply take all that a man has. A lare part of their business ia conducted In this way:. A dealer of this class makes an agreement during tho winter with a negro or a white laborer to "run" him for Uio season. That is, the mer chant furnishes the "small planter" with ail his provisions and. supplies of every kind for the spring, summer and au tumn, agricultural implements and everything needed, on credit; all these to be paid tor out ot the crop, when it is matured and gathered. Each dealer may thus supply or "run" a dozen, twenty, or fifty men. During the summer and all the time that the crop is growing, the dealer rides about and inspects each man's crop, or sends some competent man to do this, so that he can estimate the probable product. Of course an experienced judge can do this very accurately. Thus, when the cotton is ready to be picked, the merchant knows exactly how much lias been produced by each man Hint be has Tun." All along through the season ho has, of course, entered on his books each article lurnished to the planters. INow he goes over his books and puts down the price of each article, the amount which tlie customer is to pay for it; and the price is so arranged that the aggre gate charged lor the season's supply win exactly take the whole crop. Tlie poor laborer is mus ion, nt tue ena ot tne sea. son, absolutely penniless. There are often stormy scenes on -set tling day." Such a merchant will sult mit without resistance to the bitterest curses a wronged, disappointed, enraged negro can utter. Often there would be violence, but the merchant is armed and his dupe is cowed. The end or result of H all is usually that the dealer makes the man a cheap, showy present, and ar ranges to "run" him again the next year. But sometimes, when a negro is con cerned, the outcome is different. - The merchant boys cotton. . iu many cases he has a gin of his own, or a cot- . r. - . ... ton press. 1 uis gives tue wruugeu, ueij- less negro an opportunity ior revenue. The gin or press is fired some dark night ; there is a deduction from the dealer's profits for the year; tbe negroes of the region exult among themselves, and there is a new "political outrage" for the newspapers and politicians.

There is not the least doubt that in the near future cotton will be added to the staple crops of this section of our state Its culture is no loncer an experiment. and many fanners are now turning their attention to it. The experiments prove beyond a doubt that the climate of South ern Kansas is particularly favorable and that it is a much more profitable crop than wheat or corn, notwithstanding the fact that we have the finest wheat grow ing belt to be found anywhere m the west. The first man in this county to try the experiment was Capt.
