As the governor will not call an extra

Resubmissionists? Leavenworth Times.
Proceed to elect a governor who will.
A NEW CONSTITUTION.
The Republican Resubmission clubs
are not favoring high license, local
option nor free whisky. They are
simply demanding the right to vote
again on that question.
Congressmen Kelley, Peters, Ander

Illinois, for speaker of the house, while
Morrill and Perkins are for Reed, of
Maine, and Funston is for Burrows, of

The esteemed Atchison Champion is
mistaken when it says that the call for a
constitutional convention is not a sub
terfuge. That is just what it is, so far
as the politicians and office holders are
concerned. It is i fact, Dr. Krohn, but
for the prohibition wing of the Republi
can party Kansas would have had a new
constitution ere this. They weie afraid
of another direct vote on the prohibition
question and, holding the balance of
power in the party, dominated the legis
lature, using among other arguments
that of a danger of losing the 200 exemp
tion. However, resubmission does not
stand in the way of a new constitution.

think they will.

The Capital presents today on another
page interviews with the state executive
ofucers on the subject of resubmission.
These gentlemen represent the sentiment
of the Republican p'arty and of the people
of Kansas in no ordinary degree. They
express not only their opinions but the
profound conviction of the people. Tope
CapitaL These executive officers like all the
other officers interviewed by the Capital,
are politicians, every one of them hav
ing made prohibition more or less of a
hobby to get into office. They are
prohibitionists neither in principle
or in practice. They are prohibitionists
for popularity, onJy. Their "opinions"'
don't represent their own sentiments
much less the sentiments, of the state in
any degree. They talk prohibition open
ly to catch the prohibition vote and then
drink with a wink to the other crowd to
hold them. Honest prohibitionists don't
know this, probably, but there is not a
politician nor an editor in Lhe state that
can deny it, without violating his own
convictions of the truth. The plain
truth is, however harsh it may sound,
however unwelcome it may bo, and how
ever much of the denunciation it may
call forth, the plain truth, nevertheless,
is that politicians, when it comes to the
question of prohibition, are notorious

Tho death of Hon. Geo. II. Pendleton,
mentioned in this morning's dispatches
ns occmring yesterday at Brusbels, Bel
gium, will bo no less a surpriso than re
gret to the people of this country. Mr.
Pendleton has long held a prominent
position in political and official stations,
und was legarded as one of the brainy

compromising Democrat, always, but
has ever enjoyed the confidence of his
countrymen for his steiling worth and
integrity of character. The la&t official
position, that of minister to Germany,
was filled with credit alike to himself
and the government.

The Salina Republican is opposed to a
constitutional convention at this time, it
says, "not because it is not badly needed
but because the delegates would be
elected solely on the question of resub
mission." The Republican thinks "the
constitutional convention should beheld
at a time when everybody is willing to
discuss the evils of the 6tate govern
as they now are, and not to ride a hob
by." The first objection quoted, which
ib an acknowledgment that a majority
of the people of the state are in favor of
resubmission (opposed to prohibition we
presume it means), is the strongest argu
ment in favor of the proposition that
could be urged, that of majority rule.
As to the second proposition, if the Re
publican, or anybody else, can point out
in what particular evils of the state gov
ernment exist in a greater degree than
in connection with and growing out of
the prohibition question, we will show
reasons that will compel the governor to
convene the legislature in extra session
for the express purpose of providing a
remedy for the evils our cotemporary

If there is "nothing in the resubmis

the politicians and newspapers of the
state who take their cue largely from the
source above quoted, but who jumped at
the first quoted conclusion and commit
ted themselves before the second was
vouchsafed; we say if there is nothing
in the question, that is already the
question that is agitating the state
throughout, why are those echoes lef er
red to talking about it so much, and
trying to persuade themselves and every
body else that there is in fact nothing
in it? Verily their own words and acts
bewrayeth them. The fact is, it is the
lirest question today that has occupied
the attention of the state for many
months. The trouble with the afore
mentioned cue takers is that they don't
take the cue from the right source they
don't consult the people.

of them all the time; but you can't fool
all the people all the time." A fair and
common sense interpretation of the idea
contained in both the expressions quoted
is that the great mass of people, once
they take upon themselves the responsi

He felt that visit might be his last.
But why bo ho could not teiL
As he stood at the door the winter wind
Whirled in tho street about,
But above its roaring he heard her say:
"John, tell him that I am out."
As the door was opend with stately mien,
He said to the butler tall:
"Pray go to Miss Jonas with aiy compliment
And tell her I did not calL"
Lot us begin, dear lore, where we left o3;
Tie up the broken threads of that old dream,
And go on happy as before, and seem
Lotcth again, though all the world- may scoff.
Let us forget the graves which lie between
Our parting and our meeting, ard the tars
That rusted out the goldwork of the years;
The frosts that fell upon our gardens green.
Let ns forget the old nlidous fate
Who made our loTingnearts her idle toys.
And once more rerel In the old sweet joys
Of happy lorn. Kay, it Is not too late I
forget the deep ptowed f arrows in my brow;
Forget the silver gleaming in my hair;
Look only In my eyes! Oh! dardng, there
The old love shone io warmer then than now.
Down In the tender deeps of thy dear eyes,
I find the lost sweet memory cf my youth.
Bright with the holy radiance cf thy truth,
And hallowed with the blue of summer skiea.
Tie up the broken threads and lee us go,
like reunited lovers, Laad in hand.
Back; and yet onward, to the mny land
Of our To Be, which was oar Long Ago.
