In accordance with advertisement, the fair grounds west of the city were sold last Friday by Sheriff Ryan in front of the court house to satisfy the claims of L. L. Halleck and John Ham mond against the Lyon county agricult ural society, aggregating in the neigh borhood of $4,000. There were a nam ber of bidders, the highest of whom wss L. L. Halleck, to whom the property was sold for $4,000. We are not advised as to what action, if any, will be taken by the society in the direction of recovering the grounds, but are assured that they will still be used for fair purposes, as they are el igibly located, and are fitted up with all the conveniences for holding agricul tural and stock exhibitions. It is not unlikely-that the present society will be reorganized, and that a successful effort will be made to place it upon a financial basis which will enable it to buy back the grounds and cancel all Indebt edness on the property. The fine agri cultural resources of Lyon county, not to speak of her stock interests, are of such s character as to leave no room to doubt that a highly creditable exhlbl tlon can bo made of our products every year, and we earnestly hope that our an nual fairs msy be continued under even more favorable auspices than have at tended these ventures In the past MlSSOl'atl PACIFIC ELECTION.

K. & T. Railway Company by the state of Texas to construct iu road through treaty made between the Mexican Inter national & Ocean lea Railway in Mexico, and other business of more or less im portance was. transacted. A Bare! Street Fishing Party. Quite s large party of Rural street resi dents, embracing Mrs. Win. Clark, Mrs. Prof. Carmlchael, Mrs. Frank Kenyon and Mrs. Stromberg.wilh other members of their families, visited the Cottonwood near Thompson's ford Thursday, with hook and line, intent on a day of sport and enjoyment The ladies of the party are averse to talking of the occasion, and so far we have heard of but one two-inch catfish as the result of the ex pedition . Bnt they all got a thorough drenching during the rain storm, and it is intimated by one of the husbands of the party that the rain was attributable to so many ladies going fishing at once, and he even has the effrontery to sug gest that in case of a drouth the ladies of Rural street but for further de tails inquire of Pete Stromberg. A "Lave Feast." Last Tuesdsy, while Surveyor Milli ken was locating the section corners and establishing boundary lines on Elm creek, about two miles north of Reading, an altercation occurred between Mr. Chas. Patton and Lourens Deboage, over the location of the line near Mr. Severy's farm. Having exhausted the catalogue of expressive adjectives in telling each other what their privato opinions were. they resorted to s more forcible manner of expression, snd blows were exchang ed with bloody eOcct. PERSONAL MEJiTIOS yiiss Anna Elstuo lias goue tj Illinois on a visit nnd will be atisent for some weeks. Geo. A. Murphy and his grandson, Chester Culver, started last week on a visit to Pontiac, Illinois. Mrs. D. C. Crtndall, of Illinois, a former resident ol Emporia, is the guts; of Mrs. P. O. Ilallberir. F. S. Smoke, fiiruK-rly employed in Cook's dry goods store iu thisci .y, is down with small-pox iu Mew Mexico. T. S. Krutz retu'ned Thursday from an extended trip through the ast in the interest of the Central Lo&u and Land company. A. S. Uouck returned Inst Friday from a visit to Indiana. He limits Em poria is prettier thin any town he saw in bis absence and is thoroughly glsd to get home. Winfield Courant: 8. IS. Kiggs, one of Emporia's most prominent citizens, was down on business yesterday and re turned on the 6 o'clock train this morn. ing. Marion County Hord -. Miss Lillian Dudley, one of Marion's most gifted young ladies, came home to spend last Sabbath, and returned to the Emporia Normal, Tuesday morning. Topeka Capital: Mayor Welch, of Farmer City, Illinois, is in the city, and will locate here next month in partner ship with his brother, Prof. R. B. Welch, of Emporia, in the practice of law. Eureka Herald: The Normal Insti tute of this county will begin this year June 19th and continue four weeks. Professor Ross will conduct it and Miss Price, one of the teachers of the Empo ria btate Normal, has been engag ed as an assistant. T. E. Johnson, wife and daughter, of Indianapolis, are visiting at the resi dence of J. E. Stratton, southeast of the city. Mr. Johnson visited Emporia twenty years ago, and has always re garded it as one of the the most beauti ful and flourishing towns in the state. An Agreeable Surprise. Miss. M. J. Watson was most pleas antly surprised lsst week at her home on Mechanics street, by a visit from a number of her pupils, who gathered there in pursuance of a pre arranged plan to attest their high regard for their excellent teacher. After Miss Watson had greeted her unexpected guests and assured them of a hearty welcome, Miss Edith Miller, on behalf of the party, stepped forward and presented to the hostess a beautiful oil painting and a handsome psper knife, stating in well chosen language that they were but small tokens of the profound esteem in which the donors held their iaithful in structor. MIsb Watson.though somewhat discomposed by such an unlooked for tribnte.responded with a brief but cordial expression of thanks, after which for malities a most deliehful evening was spent in social converse. Miss Watson, we believe, was the very first teacher Emporia ever had, and her connection with the public schools of the city has extended over a period of more than twenty years. She is a most thorough and capable instructor, and the compliment bestowed upon her last evening was simply a fitting recogni tion ot the efficient services of one who has done so much to further the noble work of popular education in Emporia. An Allea-ed'Horse Thief Arrested. Fridsy afternoon a stranger arrived in the city astride a very fair and well caparisoned saddle horse, which he at once offered for sale, expressing a desire to immediately depart for the west. Not finding a ready purchaser, he became so anxious to make a sale that he offered the horse, saddle and bridle.worth $100, for the extremely low figure of $27,50. This excited a suspicion that all might not be right, and the;gentlemen at Mr. Davis stables near Commercial street and Fourth avenue, where he was stop ping, were reluctant in accepting his offer. Later in the evening Marshal Bell received a postal canl from the marshal at Chetops, giving a description of a horse recently stolen in that section of the country, and requesting if any an imal answering that description should turn up in Emporia, that he would ar rest and hold the assumed owner. Act ing upon this information Mr. Bell in company with Sheriu ltyan had little trouble in "spotting" the horse and se curing the individual so intent on its sale. The man taken in charge gives hla name as Cyrus Johnson, and claims relationship with several parties in Kan sas and elsewhere. The horse in ques tioned was "borrowed" of a man in the Indian Nation. Mr. Johnson is here in jail awaiting the arrival of the proper official when he will be given a chance to explain matters, or else be taken back to where the robbery occurred and com pelled to answer to the charge of horse stealing. Hotel Opening. We took a look last week through the old Fifth avenue hotel, which was again opened to the public Thursday by Mr. J. A. Weiland, who recently came to Emporia from Canton, Ohio. It was difficult to recognize the old house, so thoroughly has it been metamorphosed by the paint brush and paper hanger, Everything about the place lrom kitch en to parlor is as clean and bright as it can be made, and there is not a single article in the house in the way of furniture that is not entirely new. The office has been refloored, the walls have been covered with s neat pattern of paper, and the apartment is as neat and cosy as any one could wish for. The same process of renovation has made the dining room a place to stimulate the appetite and the well furn ished tables indicate that this part of the house will be carefully looked after. The fare will be quite reasonable, and if Mr. Weiland continues as he starts out his house cannot fail to be well patronized. Closed Down. All work on the Kansas City & Em poria railroad was suspended last week save that which is being done at the office of the engineer in this city, where Mr. Beadle and his assistants are finish ing up the maps and profiles of the line. We have not been able to learn the cause of the stoppage, but are informed that operations will probably be resumed on the road about the 1st ot July. There has been some little grading done in some of the townships in which the right-of-way has been secured, but comparatively little has yet been accom plished in- the way ef construction be tween here and Ottawa.

The following interesting sketch of the growth of the order of Knights of Pythias, was published in the Leaven worth Times during the recent meeting of the grand lodge in that city The first lodge of Knights of Pythias in this state was instituted by Grand Chancellor Charles D. Lucas, of Mis souri, at Lawrence, on April 4, lb 72, and the second at Wyandotte, by the same gentleman, five years later. There was considerable trouble in regard to these lodges, as it seems they were instituted illegally, under the rule that until there is a grand lodge in any state tue lerri- tory is under the control of the supreme lodge. Deputy Grand Chancellor Lucas had, however, acted la good laitn, vat uing his reputation as a man too highly to be guilty ot any sly or fraudulent transactions, and be fore be Instituted the lodges wrote to the then supreme chancellor, Read, to have the iunsdiction of the Missouri grand lodge extended over the slate of Kansas. This statement he made to Supreme Chancellor Berry, who sue ceeded Mr. Reed in that otMce, feeling that his position in society and tne one held in the young and prosperous order would bear him out in his statement Recognizing the zeal of Mr. Lucas. though holding that it had led him into exceeding the authority in him vested, the supreme chancellor placed the matter before the . supreme lodge, which held Uie territory was sole- lv the property of the supreme body. To relieve Mr. Lucas of the embarrassing situation in which his great zeal for the good of the order had placed him, however, they were rendered null and void so far as the grand lodge of Missouri was concerned, but being then in existence they were legalized in form and recognized as such. Dispen silionsjwere accordingly issued in proper lorm. dating oacK to cover tne interim elaosed, and thus legalizing the whole matter. Three other lodges were instituted the same year, Seneca, No. 3. in this city, on July 20; Independent No. 4, at Olathe, on August 2; and Cyndon, No. 5, at Salina. on August 0. On September 5, of the same year, under an order from Supreme Chancellor Berry, the repre sentatives and past chancellors of these five lodges met at Lawrence, Supreme Chancellor Berry in the chair, and or ganized the -grand lodge of the state. The following persons were admitted as members ot tne grand lodge and re ceived the grand lodge degree: H. J. Can iff, George A. Parwell, Jacob Weiss, E. B. bcudder, J onn inarlton, J A. Bliss, of lodge No. 1. E. L. Bartlett J. C. Welch, M. C. Dunn, James Laidlau, James Howell, of lodge No. 2. G. W. Lathrop, T. W. Deering, C. H. Messenger, W. F. Porter, of lodge No, 3. W. A. Offenbacher, J. F. B. Ilartung, W. C. Elder, Benjamin Amos, of lodge No. 4. G. G. Lowe, of lodge No. 5. The following 'officers were then elected : Venerable grand patriarch J. C. Welch. Grand chancellor H. J. Can iff. Vice grand chancellor W. A Offen- bacner. Grand banker G. G. Lowe. Grand corresponding and recording scribe J. A. Bliss. Grand guide M. C Dunn. Grand inner steward W. C. Elder. Grand outer steward J. Weiss. These officers were then installed by Supreme Chancellor Berry, after which he declared the grand lodge of the state of Kansas of the order of the Knights of Pythias duly and regularly organized, and delivered the lodge to H. J. Caniff, elected grand chancellor. The succeeding grand chancellors have been Thomas W. Deering, Edward L. Bartlett Frank H. Belton, J. W. Wheeler, John M. Price, H. M. Frazler, William F.Ewing, Joseph H. Lyon. In a little over ten years after the or ganization of the first lodge in this state we find fifty one lodges, with an esti mated membership of over 2,000. This growth is remarkable, and certainly should be very gratifying to' those who have been in charge of the interests of the order. j - A. Drawback to Trne Love. Friday afternoon a couple of young people who reside near Allen postoffice applied at the probate judge's office for a marriage license. The young lady, however, who was desirous of taking for "better or worse" the blushing gentle man at her side, who promised her strict allegiance, lacked ten days of be ing of age, and therefore, the consent of her parents not being forthcoming, the license was withheld, and the devoted couple departed sad but hopeful, and will doubtless turn np again at the ex piration of ten days and renew their pe tition tor credentials which shall enable them to act in accordance with the scriptural admonition that it is not well for man to live alone. The game of ball between the Einpo- jii and Haymaker clubs Friday after noon resulted in a victory for the for mer. There were.only four of the Hay makers present, and, judging from their playing, when the nine is complete they could give onr boys a lively set to. A very large acreage of corn has been planted in this county, and we are in formed that the stand is excellent and bids fair for a large yield. The cold weather has somewhat retarded the growth, but with a few warm days it will recover. Eareka Etching. The M. E.

Editors News; A hasty trip through tne t owier settlement a itw days ago confirmed the undersigned in the opin ion that the Fowler brothers know how to raise corn ana wneat I neir own corn fields are now as clean as a new pin. They planted their corn early, got a good stand, and in consequence the corn is growing finely. Lsst year while most people's corn and wheat fell short these men had eighteen bushels of wheat and fifty or sixty bushels of corn per acre. Consequently these farmers have all the corn they need and more, and plenty of money in their pockets, while many poor farmers have to buy corn for their own use. I also noticed wbatT have often ob served before, that where the ground was plowed for wheat early, say in June, the wneat ts about twice as large as where the plowing was done just before seeding time The writer of this item is decidedly or tiie opinion tnat wnen the proper condition are complied with, there will be no trouble in raising from twPDty to thirty bushels of-wheat per year, on an acreage. The two main points to be observed are early plowing in June and only once and early sowing, say during the first week in September. Never latt than the loth of September. T. Armor SHIFTING SOIL.

For a few moments Friday evening the News reporter had the pleasure of hear ing the exercises of the Normal Lyceum in their room in the Btate building. Alter tne introductory exercises were through and the new president had been installed, several members of the society grappled with the momentous question of capital punishment, and we were pleased to note the interest taken in th discussion by those present, but it would be much more beneficial to the particl pants in these debates did they give more time to preparation, and cultivate a graceful presence and easy flow language. Horace Greeley once said to a correspondent to the Tribune : you haven't anything to say, say it in as few words as possible." These words have a moral that all writers and speak ers could profit by, and especially be ginners at extemporaneous speaking, The Americus News EDITED BY " BTJRLOW.'

THE KATIOXAL BASK QUESTION. Lively DIseosstoa of the Matter ta the V Ham. WASttiNOTOS, May 18. The house re sumed consideration of the bank charter extension bill, the pending outslicn la- ing an amennim-nl offered by Buckler, reducing tue period tar which batiks may extend tueir charters from twen ty i ten years. List, 'J'2 to 116 bjinugrt nered an amendment pro- vidiug mm ail cbirters or national banks sua! I expire at tne end or twenty years intra J anuury i, 13SJ, untrhs c-m- gressatiali provide f r an e.trlier :eiiMl ivr the expiration of suoU charters. Re- e-:ted. Connor offered the following amend- ui -nt as an additional section to the il for the reorgniz-il;oa of national luks: The nalioual banks now organ ized or hereafter organiz'-d having a cap ital ot $150,000 or less sliould not be re quired lo Keep a deposit with the r urer or tne LniieU tsiates of IjuiLed blates bonds in the excea ol f lU.ouo as becurity tor their circulating notes, and such of those biuka haa iug a deposit it bonds laexcesti to tnat amount sre authorized to reduce their circulation by a deposit of laa ful money as provided by law. Adopted yeas WJ, nays 100, Uoonor moved to rec i:sider and to lay ihtt motion on the table. Agreed e&s, ill ; nays, iro Hammond then ollered his amend meal providing tnat jurisdiction tor suits hereafter brought by or against na tional banking assueiiiliona, except be tween them and tne Untied stales or its officers or agents, shall be the same as I jurisdiciion for suits brought by or against uanas not organized unuer any law ot tne U nited otates. whicb do or might do a banking busiaess where such national association may be doing business wnen sucn suits may be begun Agreed to. Randall ollered an amendment pro viding mat tne organization ot any banking association intended to replace any existing banking association and re tain tne name tnereot, tne holders ot stock in the expiring association shall be entitled to preference In the allotment of Bhares in the new association in pro portion to the number of shares held by them respectively in the expiring asso ciation. Adopted. Holinan ollered an amendment pro viding that every banking association wbicu shall obtain the benent or this act shall pay the cost of preparing the plates for such new circulating notes as shall be issued by it, and all other costs incident to substituting sucb new circu lating notes for old, in addition to the tax now imposed on banking associa- tionajiy law. Adopted. tfrunim, or I'ennsyivanta, said tne Democrats had treated the Greenback. era with such disrespect that at the last congress they had not even given them a bearing. At tins session, however. the Green backers bad been treated well and they have been recognized on com mittees ot the bouse. Tuey nave been recognized as a party. You Democrats say : "We don't know whether Green- backers are ngut or wrong; but, right or wrong, we will not treat you even with respect. (Applause on ltepubll can side, followed by counter-applause on toe Democratic side.) lou have in Indiana and Ohio and Pennsylvania had platforms of Greenback and flat money as staunch as I would have them. You are divided among yourselves as you always nave been since ibou. lou can be found on every side of every question. (Laughter and applause on the Republican side.) That has been your record, and I Bay that you are in the way of progress. You are only a stumbling block in the way of the Greenback doctrine to-day. (Applause and laugbter on tue Democratic side.) Mr. Bland criticised the action of the greenbackers in the house,declaring that ttie members of that party elected from Missouri were pledged to vote for a Re publican speaker in case their votes were necessary lo carry the election. "Gentlemen," said he, "that party de denounced corporations out and out, yet tuey voted against a proposition wmcn would prevent those corporations from dragging their constituents hundreds of miles to Inderal courts. The gentleman from Texas, Mr. Jones, would find the people of Texas not so crazy to take up his tight and Mahonize that state, and the gentleman would find some trouble in explaining to his constituents why he voted against the proposition to sub stitute treasury notes tor national bank notes. Burrows, of Missouri, denied that during the canvass tor congress in Mis souri the Greenbackers pledged themselves to support the lte publican nominee for speaker. Once during the campaign he had seen that statement in a local paper, but he had called upon the editor to prove it or have him branded as an lnlamous liar. Ford (Mo.) I emphatically deny the truth of the assertion, coming from whom it may, that the Greenbackers were ever pledged to support Republi can speakers. Jones (Texas) said the position taken by Bland was such that he could say to the Greenbackers, "I am a better Green- backer than the Greenbacker himself.1 and then, turning to a hard-money Dem ocrat, said,! am very careful to avoid fiat money." He then proceeded to at tack the Democrats, comparing them to the weaker man in a quarrel, who says to his opponent, "If you hit me I will give old Uncle John fits." So with the Democratic party. When it met the Republican party it was a coward, but U said, "Here is the little Greenback party, and we will just give it fits." Bland replied that the Greenback par- tv was a sort ol tail to tne Republican kite, and it was necessary to cut off the tail in order to bring the kite down. On motion of Crapo, the following amendment was inserted at the end of section 7 of the bill : And the franchise of such association is hereby extended for the sole purpose ot liquidating inetr atlairs until such affairs are finally closed. Section 7 lias reference to banking associations which do not avail them selves of the provisions of this act. Mr. Haskell (Kansas) said he had in- tended to vote for the pending bill, but he was not prepared to support it since the amendment offered by Cannon had been adopted, because it radically chang es the national banking system. He dare not cast his vote for a proposition that would open the door to possible contraction of the currency that might reacn siu.uuu.uuu. Mr. Cannon opposed the amendment onered by urapo. The euect or it, he contended, was to organize a corner on 4s and 4s, and to squeeze the banks out. Atkins moved to adjourn, pending wnicn tne speaker laid betore the house a message from the president, trans mitting the concluding report of the secretary of state, and accompanying papers relative to the imprisonment of Thos. Shields and Charles Weber in Mexico. Among the papers is a copy of letters signed by Shields. Weber and Salm to Representative Coyne, of Penn sylvania, as follows: We are released from jail and have had an interview with Hon. P. P. Mor gan, and from the evidence produced we are satisfied that he has done all in his power for us. We ma ke this state ment without any mental reservation, Adjourned. Chase Co.
