As will be seen by reference to an
other column, a republican club has
been organized in Wichita. Some
thing more than one hundred and
twenty-live names have been added to
the roll, of such men as believe in the
doctrines of the great republican par
ty; who belicc that in its mainten
ance alone will peace and prosperity be
preserved in the nation. The club has
raised the old flag on the republican
ramparts ; a banner that has inscribed
upon its folds emancipation, human
liberty, rights to all men, honor to
patriots, the payment of an lione-t na
tional debt, peace and Grant and Wil
son. Wichita is all right. Those who
think that a majority of the men of
"Wichita ami Sedgwick county are go
ing to entrust the great interests and
principles that have been evolved in
the regeneration and purification of
this nation, to a lot of mongrel sore
heads, who alone seek power and place,
arc much mi-taken. Following the
cxcitmeiit of the late Cincinuati-ISalti-morc
!rusion, and the unseemly jum
ble of principles and men, many stooil
aloof or talked for talkssal.e, but the
second, sober thought is returning,
and the solid men of the country are
announcing that they can afford to
take no such risks as proffered by the
democrats and sore-heads. Under the
administration of the great patriot and
soldier, U. S. Grant, which has been
marked for its honesty, for its econ
omy and for the rapidity with which
our national obligations have been
discharged, all will be well, as all has
been well during the past four years
of financial trial and political and gov
ernmental reconstruction. No man,
110 republican at least, who glories in
the results of the lat eight years' his
tory, who loves principle and loyalty,
can afford to desert the republican
party for something he knows not
what. We bid the republican club of
"Wichita God speed.
Our liberal friends iu Wichita have
been whistling again to keep tip their
courage. Another public meeting was
held on Wednesday night at which im
ported big guns and small home anvils
made some noise. The principal lights
of the occasion were Maj. E. G. IJoss,
W. Perkins, esq., Judge Stribling, of
Texas, Judge Sumner, of Eldorado, and
a couple of turpentine lamps and a' few
dry goods boxes, nil of which and
whom blazed. Mr. Perkins opened
the meeting by complimenting Grant
in the highest terms sis a general and
patriot, but expressed a doubt as to his
fitness for the chief executive of the
ouniry. Judge Stribling, of Texas,
followed him iu congratulating the
people upon the "continued peace and
prosperity of the country,"' to which
every republican present responded a
hearty mental-ameu. He siNo honored
Grant as a general, but deprecated his
way of managing alVairs in the south
ern states, denouncing him as a Caar
or a Nero. Nearly all of the entire
harraugiic was in the interrogatory
form, nothing being squarely asserted
but, "my friends, is it not so?' Major
Uoss' eflort was a rehash of what he
has been ofl'ering at other points. He
complimented Grant a- a general, as a
policy man, -and a shrewd financier,
but complained that be had received
presents and rewarded some of his old
army comrades with office. It was
amusing to watch the varying expres
sion of the mixed crowd, made up. as
it was, of Texas cattle men, northern
democrats and old time abolitionists
upon the one side, and out-and-out
Grant and Wilson men upon the other.
How gingerly did Mr. ltoss speak of
the emancipation of $1'2,000,000 of
property, (4.000.000 of men), and Gree
ley's noble part iu bringing it about, and
how sober looked one element of the
crowd, and how softly did Judge Strib
ling denominate 11. G. and his Tribune
the great educators of the century,
'frilly have we fallen upon wonderful
The affair proved sleepy enongh,
void of any show of life' or interest
save the stir created by the executive
eomittcc of the Grant and Wilson club,
w!io were taking the names of such per
sons as had concluded to cast their lot
with the party of union, freedom and
progress, with the party whose admin
istration has madeoui nation since the
late civil war the wonder and admira
tion of the world.
We cannot give a truer idea of the
animus of the meeting, ot the points
attempted to be made by the speakers,
than by borrowing a Greeley idiom and
saying: Anjbody who says that Gree
ley ain't a true democrat, or that the
Union was not preserved by Jeff. Davis
Sc Co., or that the democratic party did
not emancipate the colored race, is a
villian, a horse thief, a scoundrel, a
liar aud a dirty dog.
The meeting wound up by giving
three hearty cheers for Grant ami Wil
fon, which the liberal fellows declared
was a put up job. but which we believe
to have been purely a patriotic vent.
Senator Koscoe UouUiiig addressed
a large and cntlitiMastiu republican
meeting this week at Cooper Institute,
upon the subject of Grant and his
defaincrs deeds ngaint works. lie

among them all there is one, living or
dead, who never knowingly failed in
his duty, that man is U. S. Grant.
There was forecast in giving him the
name of Sidney, for his greatest
qualify is his magnanimity. If there
has been a high official ever ready fo
admit his errors and correct them; if
there has been one who docs wisely,
firmly and well the thimrs irivcn him in
charge, that one is the soldier iu war,
and the quiet patriot iu peace who has
been named again by every township
in forty-sixs tatcsand territories for the
great trust he now holds. Yet this
man, honest, modest and proved by
his nianv deeds to be endowed with
generosity common sense, and moral
qualities adequate for the gratcst af -
fairs: this man who saved his country ;
who snatched our nationality and our
cause from dispair aud bore them on his
shoulder through the flame of battle,
in which, but for him, they would have
perished; this man, under whose ad
ministration our country has flourished
as no one dared to predict; this man
to whom a nation's gratitude and ben
ediction are due, is made a mark for
ribald jet, odious and groundless
slanders. Why is all this ? Simply
because he stands iu the way of greedy,
ambitious politicians aud schemers.
That ecclesiastical wine-bibber, that
hankerer after Vic. Woodhull, on a
back roof on dark nights, that preach
er of morality but practiccrof the black
art, Theo. Tiltou, who lost his place on
the Independent and in the estimation
of decent people long ago, is just now
writing Golden Age Horace Greeley
campaign tracts. We have been made
the recipient of a few specimens, in
one of which he hays that his paper
was the first to mention Greeley iu con
nection with the presidency. Of course
a man who would prostitute his pen
writing eulogies of a woman like Vic.
Mood-Woodhull et al., a woman that
has spent years in exhibiting her shame
to the world, would not hcitatc to as
sert what he knew to be a lie. We
claim no particular honor in first advo
cating old white hat for the presiden
cy. We were honest in our desire to
sec him the nominee of the republican
party, upon the platform of "universal
amnesty, impartial suffrage and spe
cie payment,' five years ago, but this
same Tiltou who is now so loud-niouth-ed
in Greeley's behalf, then laughed to
scorn the idea of his name iu such a
connection. Hear what he said in the
New York Independent of the first
week of January, 1808.
'The Osage, Kansas. Chronicle nom
inates Horace Greelci for president as
the .successor of Andrew Johnson, and
nails the name of its candidate to its
masthead. Mr. Greeley is already pres
ident of the American Institute, where
he exercises as beneficent an influence
as he could perhaps if he were nrcsi
dent of the United Slates; still, 'if he
should be nominated by the Chicago
convention we will make no ery vio

is satisfied with having nominated a

In pursuance of the call issued, a
large number of the voters of the city
of Wichita and vicinity assembled at
the Southwestern laud office, on the
evening of the 201 h inst., for the pur
pose of organizing a republican cam
paign club.
W. R. Kirkpatrick, esq., was chosen
temporary chairman, aud II. C. Sluss,
On motion of Dr. Allen, a commit
tee of five was appointed on perma
nent organization.
After a short interval the commit
tee reported the following as the per
manent officers of the club: Jas. A.
Stevenson, president; J. M. Steele,
W. R. Kirkpatrick, vice presidents ;
II. C. Sluss, secretary ; M. M. Murdock,
corresponding secretary, and M. F.
W.iight, treasurer; which report was
unanimously adopted.
The president then appointed the j
following executive committee of the '
" i
club: Dr. E. 15. Allen, Dr. A. J.
Longsdorf, J. M. Balderston and Con
rad Vcsperinan.
Committee on rules : W. C. Wood
man, W. C. Little and S. M. Tucker.
The roll of the club was then signed
by over one hundred voters. The ut
most harmony and good feeling pre
vailed. No speechifying, no hurrah
ing and no gunpowder, but a free,
general exchange of opinion. "We
mean business" was manifest iu every
word and act of each voter present.
On motion, the club adjourned, to
meet again at the call of the president.

W. C. Webb has gone liberal. We
arc glad of it. We were satisfied long
ago that he was a demagogue and po
litical shyster of the most sneaking
type, and now we think so stronger
than ever. He came within an inch of
being boosted out of tiic legislature of
the state iu which he formerly resided,
for fraudulent practices, as the jour
nals of the house, we think, plainly
show, whereupon became to Kansas,
since which time he has been attempt
ing to run the state; and he has fallen
little short of his ambition as far as
the executive is concerned. We
ask Governor Harvey how he feels
now? Didn't we all tell you so?
Can't you see by this time that too
much bull-hcadcdiicss is not always a
good things.
This Webb is a first-clas blather
skite he ha the "jammers"' to a fear
ful degree, and is a regular old politi
cal dead-beat,who litis pulled the wool
over Governor Harvej's eyes to such
an extent that he holds the best office
in the state that of insurance super
intendent. He also managed to get
the reporter's place and salary iu the
supreme court.
It is due the republican patty of
Kansas that he be kicked out of his
present position, but whether he is or
not, we arc glad that Webb has left

sympathize with me when jou look
back at those days and remember how
you racked your brains and scratched
the top of your scull till the hair came '
out, iii trying to find a subject to write
upon ; where everything is about the
same to-day as it was yesterday, and
the day before, and week before that.
Our crops, under the favorable
growing weather, have every prospect
of an enormous yield ; superior in tip-
pcarance, we have been told, to many
to even that of your far-famed val
ley. Hedges, on many of our farms,
arc beginning to assume the appear
ance of fences ; in height they are al
ready so only needing the strength
given by growth and age. Many ofj
our farmers have broken ground,1" var-
rying from four to live inches, for the i
purpose of setting out orchards this
fall and next spring. The corn crop
will be enormous ; iu some fields stalks
fourteen and fifteen feet iu height can
be seen, upon which well-filled cars
were growing to the height often feet.
The potatoc crop will also be good,
notwithstanding the great plagues of
flies, caterpillars, gophers and moles,
which have fallen upon and under
them. The wild plum on the river
banks have been abundant, but arc
now pretty well gathered by natives
and strangers from the "Queen City,"
and these, we presume, were happy to
to escape for a fuw days from her
crowded and muddy streets.
Now. Mr. Editor, since we have said
something about our home prosperity
about the favorable season for farm
ing let us turn for a moment to on r
commerce, especially that class of
commerce which has naturally spi trig

need expect no mercy. a it is but na
