There waa a ifhoat abow and a Greenback ineeting ia town last week. The amount of taxes apportioned to Lyon county for state purposes Tor the year 1881, is T2'2,607.49, as reported by tbe auditor of state. J. II. Hibbeo, Ibe prevent popular cnuaty surveyor of Lyou county, is an nounced in another column as a candi date for reflection. Coles 3t Jones have purchased tbe lot at tbe northwest corner of Mechanics street and Sixth avenue, and will erect a buttlnesa bouse thereon. Commonwealth : State Treasurer Francis yesterday turned over to Audi. tor Bonebrake canceled state warrants amounting to $112,000." John llenning got in a lot of meat blccks recenUv that look as if tbey might have been sawed from one of the inammoth trees of California. The contract for printing 1500 pre mium lists for the Lyon county fair in September, was let to W. P. Chalfant by tbe bdSrd of directors last week. J. B. Craig, who is well known to our readers, and who was county clerk four years ago, Is announced as a candidate for tbe same office before the Republican convention. Captain S. II. Warren, who returned from Rc-no county last week, says tbe corn crop throughout tbe western part of the state is the best that has ever been known in that section. Three sisters of tho Franciscan order will be added to the corps of teachers in the Catholic school of this city as soon as tbe convent, which is in process of construction, is completed. If the man who carried away a load of shot from the melon patch of F. E. timlth the other evening,' will furnish hia name to this paper, be will gratify a large measure ot public curiosity. Ueorge Woodford, the celebrated tem perance advocate of Illinois, who spoke in Emporia last summer, will deliver an address in this city on Sunday, August 7 lb, at Norton's Grove" or Jay's Hall. The Eldorado Branch opens fos. traffic to Augusta and Douglas on Monday August 1st. But one train will be run each day, and that in connection with the mall train on the main line as now, Tbe superintendent ot water-works will shortly lay five hundred feet of thr.'e inch pipe on State street. He will also put in about three hundred feet on Fifth avenue between Hural and West street. Tbe memorial service in respect to the memory ot Johnnie Munton, which was to have been held last Sunday at Jay's Hall, was postponed until a week, later when it will be conduct eJ by J udge Culver. Tom Flemiog is a candidate for sheriff, as will be seen by his announce. ment in another column. Tom is a tip top good fellow who has lots of friends and plenty of sand in bis craw, and if nominated by the convention, would make a good run. Delinquent water-takers are doing some lively kicking over the penalty which they are required to pay by the provisions of the ordinance regulating their cases. Tbe superintendent, in pursuance of instructions, turned off the water on fifty-seven takers. Our old friend Daruia Cbamblin, of Rock creek. Center township, has our thanks for a very fine sample of early Ohio potatoes left at this office Thursday. This is a new variety in this section, on which Mr. Cbamblin received a pre mium at the last county fair. The Odd Fellows of this city sent the children of Charles Hofer, who was kill ed some months ago on the Santa Fe road, to Ohio, last week, where they will be cared for by their grandmother. This is a noble charity, and one which reflects the highest credit upon tbe order. It is darkly intimated in this cily that trout fishing does not embrace the full scope of Lem Heritage's trip to the east. This rumor will tend to invest bis return with a keen measure of interest, especially among his lady friends in this city. The immense audience which assent. bled at Jay's ball last week to bear Governor St. John's discussion of the prohibitory law, was one of the finest in point of numbers and quality that we have ever seen in Emporia, and scores of people left tho place, owing to their in ability i ure seats. We were recently shown some books which were bound at the establishment of J. R. Graham, In this city. The work inanship, in point of substantlability, fin iahand general excellence is equal to the best we have seen in Kansas, and speaks well for the facilities of the bind ery at which it was done. The Hartford mill has a strange in habitant and is considered by the owners and employes of the mill to bo very valuable. It is a large blacksnake and js valuable in the fact that it keeps the premises almost free from mice. It wanders Into every part of the mill and permits itself to be stroked with the rim of a hat. Tbe proprietors of dilapidated side walks want to put their bouses in order. The committee on streets and alleys are on tbe war-path and will promptly con demn all broken and insufficient walks. The cily has paid for one broken limb, and the council has wisely concluded to protect it against any further contingen cies of that kind. A soda fountain consigned to Dr. Moore, of this city, arrived from Boston last week in a badly demoralised shape, giving evidence of having en countered a wreck somewhere on its way west. The coat of the fountain was in the neighborhood of $700 and the fragments show that it was a beautiful piece of workmanship. ' Wm. Francis, superintendent of build, ing and bridges along the line of tbe Santa Fe, was presented with a hand some gold watch, chala and locket, by M.J. Shaver, in behalf of a number of employes in his department, at the Jew. elry store of H. J. Bird, last week. Tbe watch Is of a very handsome .pat tern, wita a Rockford nkkle movement, and the gift is valued at $175. Mr. W. II. Rankin, of Lawrence, rep. resenting the Western National Fair, is in tbe city with a view to interesting tbe farmers of this section in the matter of a county exhibition at Bismarck in Sep. tember. Ho thinks that if the proper effort Is made Lyon county would have no trouble whatever in taking the first premium on a stock exhibit. We trust this matter will receive the consideration which it evidently merits. THE PROHIBITORY LAW Ably Championed by Gov. St . Jono-It Ia Mot a Failure. . - r roro the Daily Nbws of July 98 After the Amateur baud bad played some very choice music in front of the ball last evening a very large but tardy audience gathered at Jay's hall to listen to Gov. SL John's address, under the ana- pices or tbe VV omen's Christian Temper ance Union, on the prohibitory law of Kansas. The stage of the ball bad been very tastefully decorated, and seats were provided thereon for tbe Governor and various members of the W. C. T. U. Tbe first thing on the programme as an nounced by the president of the onion was reading of the scriptures by Mrs. Mary Rogers, after which this well known evangelist offered a fervent pray er In behalf of temperance everywhere. A quartette of Welsh ci tizens, led by T. II. Lewis, then sang a temperance para phrase on the Marseilles hymn in Welsh and in English. .There waa considera ble confusion -during tbe early part of the evening, and it waa not until the Governor bad been announced and bis address begun that the carelessly noisy crowd quieted down sufficiently to make bearing possible in the rear of tbe halL ST. JOHN'S ADDBK9S. Gov. St, John commenced his address by saying be bad not come there to dis cuss the wisdom of the prohibitory law. Prohibition bad been adopted in Kansas according to Ibe manner provided in our State constitution, and the law to carry out the prohibitory amendment was in dorsed by the temperance and law abid ing people of the State. Then comes the question of whether this law shall be enforced. Leavenworth, who in times past was a political despot in the State, who ruled tbe destinies of politi- clans, now declared, though being only one-thirtieth of the population of tbe State of Kansas, that this law was fanat ical and tyranical, that saloons were necessary to the prosperity of a city, and they would not enforce prohibition. Now, there was a time when Leavenworth was the first city in the Missouri valley, and she had enough saloons to have become a city of 100,000 inhabitants, if saloons make a place. But they do not, for the glory of this old metropolis has departed and she is now a comparatively unimportant town of 10,000 people. But even in Leavenworth there are not more than half so many grog shops as before the law passed, and if tbe testimony of witnesses was to be relied on we would believe there is no place in the city where Intoxicating liq uors are sold. There bad been trials but no convictions under the prohibitory law at Leavenworth. The Governor had been asked about calling out tbe militia to enforce the law. When the sheriff re ported to him that be and bis posse were unable, from opposition by the cit izens, to carry out the law, then he would not hesitate to call out the whole state militia. In Topeka there is a county attorney who does his duty. Though the first trials failed of convicting, tbe opposition made a blunder which ruined their fight. They got Sam Wood and Gov. Robinson to address a meeting, and that did it Robinson said a juryman's duty was to bring in a verdict according to his con science, unmindful of the law, and Sam Wood well, life is too short to tell what bam said, but there nave been no more failures of conviction since then and Topeka must be stricken from the list of cities which do not enforce the law. A mighty interest was at work to defy this law. There were only two morning daily newspapers in the State which did not countenance the open violation and disregard of tbe prohibitory law. Mil waukee beer men sent money to fight the law, ana tbe brewers' congress, re cently held, appropriated an unlimited sum. It also denounced the law and re solved that it "viewed with alarm the spread of Puritanical ideas in this country !" All the cities of the State can enforce the law, just as Emporia has enforced it, The duty of the mayor is to enforce all laws aud ordinances. The Marshal has power to enforce tho law; policemen have power to enforce it; it is the duty of sheriffs to enforce it, - and the county attorney is required to see it enforced The oath of office of all these officers make It perjury to fail to enforce this prohibitory law. It is claimed that the law will keep away immigration. The German em mi gration bugbear was always brought up, But German immigrants said they were not huntiDg for beer or beer gardens biit homes, and still come to Kansas, and a party of Mennonites had within a few days located even in Sam, Wood's neighborhood in Chase county, Kansas is to-day in a more prosperous condition than ever. The value of her personal property had increased $10,260, 000 during the last year, and the earn ings of the Santa Fe road for tbe year ending June 30, 1881, showed a net in crease of $433,000 over any previous year. And there would be raised in Kan sas this year 20,000,000 bushels of wheat and 100,000,000 bushels of corn. Al though the law had been in force but few months, yet with an increase of SO, 000 in population in the state, the num. Der or convicts in its pen itentlary had decreased from 714 649. Tbe law will never be repealed, and a prediction was made that in a few years the number of our convicts would fall to 300. Maine, with a population about the same as California, had 196 convicts in ber penitentiary, while Cali fornia, with free liquor, had 1,600. Although Leavenworth and Atchison and Dodge City now defy the law, it had otherwise been a grand success in Kan sas, and would the people of the State allow one or two cities to trample on the law which tbey obey f It had been called the law of a few fanatical women What leaders in any grett movement were not counted fanatical ? If the men had to stay at home and nurse the baby and do kitchen drudgery while their wives laid around the sa loons there would be some fanatical men advocating the law also. Comparisons had been made between this law and the fugitive slave law, and it bad been said it was an honorable thing to defy this law aa the fugitive slave law had been defied. But opposi tion to the slave law was honorably made, not by sneaking back-door methods, and on the ground that it was an iniquitous, unholy law. Prohibition was in the in terest of everything to elevate man. And the fugitive slave law had been en forced, odious though it was, as the memorable case of Anthony Burns bore testimony. It bad been asserted by the whisky press that the Governor was about the country in quest of official favors. But this question Is not a political question, and it was championed by blm because he had an interest in the welfare of hia fellow men. It is simply a question of whether the whisky men shall rule thla state. He wished that , women could vote. There would be no question of how pol iticians stood on the prohibitory law then. He counseled the men to vote and labor manfully for this righteous meas ure, and referred his audience to I Tim othy U 8 and 9 : "But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully. Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the ungodly and for sinners,'' etc. The address, of which the above is merely an outline, lasted about an hour and a half, and was frequently applaud ed. It waa a clear and logical -argument in favor of law and right, and can not fail of good effects in our city. The Governor, although hoarse with a cold aad not at hia beat, made a very favora ble Impression by his earnestaess and evident sincerity, and his effort was warmly commended by every law-abiding citixen present. - Professor Leslie's chorus numbers 127. in this city JPERSOJfAI.

The Fat Contributor of the "News'" De tails Hia Tribulation mt a Fine Haired Hotel. Colorado Springs, CoL, July 27. Editors News: The pleasures of watering place are not continuous or un alloyed, and many vexatious incidents take place to mar the happiness of the pleasure seeker. Only yesterday thrilling scene took place in the dining room of our hotel. A lady boarder ac cused the waiter girl of palming off oleomargarine for "cow butter" (as she called it.) The landlord was sent for, war of words ensued, a committee of ladies was selected as a compromise to investigate the butter, and after a care ful inspection the committee reported that they had found about three hairs to the pound, and consequently they pro nounced it genuine butter. The Colora do beef, too, has not yet recovered from the severe drying process of last winter. My jaws ache from the extra duty im posed on them. In addition to masti cating my own food, I have to chew beef for several toothless maidens who are traveling for pleasure. A Mrs. Brown, from Michigan, stopping here for the benefit of her lungs. She drums on the piano and squalls like a torn cat three-fourths tbe day. I am glad that I never met her before her lungs gave out. One poor fellow is troubled with neuralgia of the jaw and is very uneasy lest it should terminate in tbe . lock jaw. His fellow boarders have no such apprehensions. Married ladies are more subject to weak lungs than single ones, and they never forget to bring the children along, especially if they are twins. Weak lungs are not hereditary, at least the children here arc not - troubled with then There Is nobody likes children better than I do, but the attachment ap pears to grow as the distance grows that intervenes. The Yankee that invents a trap for catching the stray notes of a crying infant will have his fortune in store. I shall never Btop al a high-toned ho tel again. The common tramp tfom tbe cheap .hash house comes in and drops into a chair, gaps at us a while, seizes a sheet of paper beaded "Colorado Springs House Terms $5 per day" scribbles a letter and mails it to bis friends at a saving of $4 a day. I saw Phil Sheridan last week. He did not know I was here. He is here because Mrs. Sheridan is, and will go back when she docs. She would not consent to him strolling over the towa with me after 'supper. ' This town is strictly temperate. I had no idea water was so wholesome. They have the'beet lot of preachers here I ever saw in any town. They entrance half their audience in 10 minutes. It takes the average Emporia minister fifteen to twenty minutes to accomplish the same feat. I dont claim to be a pillai of the church, but have interested myself as a sleeper. More anon. CaATLAix. Iter. L. C Ebey has returned to tha city after a short absence, and work will toon be resumed on the Free Method Ut church in South Emporia. We are re quested, on behalf of the church, to return thanks to the citizens of Emporia for their liberal subscriptions; and also to say l- others who have not subscribed, that more help will be needed to com plete the church. The pastor will call upon them soon, and whatever they give will be gratefully received. V Toledo Toplea. Toledo, July 26. It is sad and pitiful to see with what anxious and expectant faces the farmers scan the borison every hour in the day In hopes of seeing a cloud, that can promise them rain. For unless it rains ia a day or two the corn crop a great deal of it at least, will be a complete failure, after all the' fair promises of spring. While we have complete and on- limited confidence in the great Dispenser of rain and other needful things, yet we do think that He ought not to let Garfield and Conkling occupy his attention to the neglect of this part of Kansas.. ... Mr. Pelford has just finished a nice ad dition to his house and is now. having a well drilled. Water was-never so hard to find before in this part of the country. Dr. Conaway had one dug and two drill ed, one 55 feet and the other 110 feet, be fore he succeeded in obtaining sufficient water for stock.. Lietw linckell has one of the finest smoke bouses ia the state.... Several of our teachers are at tending the institute and report it a complete success despite the "healed term.'. . . . Aaron Jones still Iingcreth in Arkansas, bnt will return in a few weeks. Peaches are drying and shriveling np on the trees for want of rain. . . .Toma toes and. the festive cucumber have made their appearance in the market. Hay hands are in great demand and can obtain pood wae-es. Tbe rattle of the mower is heard in every direction de spite the hot weather. : Nemo. Eanka Eeboae. Wednesday, July 27. A convention of the Disciples church was held in that church here last Fri- day and Saturday. Workers and minis ters were present from Greenwood, Coffey and Woodson counties, which form the eighth Kansas district. El der , ltandall, stale evangelist, . was pYfescnt and preached most acceptably, as well as giving good counsel to his co laborers. The convention was an in teresting and successful one.... Judge E. W. Cunningham came -down last evening to attend the Sunday school as sociation to-day.... Rev. Hassinger, Lutheran minister from- Ohio, is stop, ping with Rev. Groseclose. He preached in the Presbyterian church last Sunday even ing.... County Super intendent G. II. Martz has re turned from bis visit to St Louis. , One James Brodle, an innocent keeper of a "meat shop" where "breakfast ba con" was on sale, was arrested a week ago last Monday for selling intoxicating drinks unlawfully. His case came up for trial before Justice Onlcy last Thurs day. County Attorney Harlan, who had filed the complaint, appeared for the prosecution and Gen. G. C. Rogers and Hon. T. L. Davis tor the defense.' Con siderable delay was bad in securing jury. When the evidence was in the case was so plain that, though the de fendant's attorneys made heroic efforts to save him, it was unavailing. The jury brought in a verdict of guilty, and Brodle was let off with a fine, of $100 and costs and agreeing to close his "meat market." . This was the first case under the new law, and we hope there will be no occasion for a second. Will the editor please telegraph the news of this conviction, to Gov. Robinson, Col, Holliday and Sam Wood T Rev. J. C. Hull, of Madison, and Rev. I. N. Locke, of Severy, are in the city attending the Sunday School Convention. . . .Rev. Mr. Jack, ex pastor of the Presbyterian ehurch, is visiting friends in tbe city. The annual meeting of tbe Greenwood County Sunday School Association met in the Presbyterian church yester day at 2 p. m. Rev. Groseclosre con ducted the devotional exercises. The President, J. L. Baker, then took the chair. In the absence of the permanent secretary, Dr. J. F. Troxell was elected temporary secretary. Tbe names of delegates present were enrolled and Miss Fisher read tbe minutes of the previous session. Rev. C. W. Guile tt, then read an opening address. Subject, "Tbe Influence of Sunday Schools from a Secular Standpoint" On motion the association requested the writer to fur nish copies of the address to the county papers and they be asked to print It, Rev. C. J. McKlnney discussed the sub ject of "Devotions in the Sunday School," when after some miscellaneous business and talking, the association ad iourned. This morning at 8:30 asso ciation was called to order by the presi dent. Rev. Scotford conducted the de votions. The following was the pro pranime: "Tbe Sunday School Su perintendent," by Rev. Scotford "The Blackboard in the Sun day School," by Rev. Locke. "God's Call to the Sunday School Work er," by Rev. Groseclose "The Teach er's Work and now to Do It," by Judge Cunningham and Revs. Hull and Cook Judge Cunningham gave the most com- piete analysis or the teacher's work we have ever heard. He covered the whole ground and left but little for others to say, and they manifested their apprecia tion - of the fact by making only a few commendatory remarks. This after noon was given to miscellaneous busi ness. Reports from different schools were read .showing a healthy growth the schools of the county. . The con stitution of the association was amended so that instead of meeting'the last week in July the association will meet at the call of the executive committee. Dr. Troxell was elected president for tbe en suing year and Miss Laura Gordon was re-elected secretary. The interest man tested was not what it should have been. but was better than it had been in other years. The association closed to-night by a children's meeting. Several very interesting exercises were given by the children, and J udge Cunningham made speech to them in his usual happy style. . sSwoartuL Hi mx, .
