A Blatant Humbug. Certain gentlemen, for political ef lect, arc around telling that if Judge ltrown, is elected, he is pledged to re movo the Wichita Land Ollice to lhiU-hiii-01), or to some other point. These knowing ones had better post themselves. Under the rules of the department of the Interior, the U. S. Senators happen to have a say as to LT. S. Land Oliiccs and laud districts. And even had Judge I.rown the en tire control of the matter, who that knows him would accuse him ot little trades of that sort? It's thin. Rut, let us present the other horn of the dilcma: l'.eyond every contingency Drown will be elected by ten or twelve thousand majority, will carry every county in tho district, except probably two, then how would it look for Wich ita to be on the side of the minority aud some other town wanting her Laud Ollice? Answer us that. Tho Twenty-third infantry, which has but recently arrived at Omaha from Arizona, is now under orders to go to scw Mexico. Taxes for state purposes in Xew York this year are seven and one half mills on the dollar; in Katisas only four. Somo of the 'Reform" papers ought to cite this fact as an evidence of Republican mis rule and extrava gance in Kansas. T1.0 fifty-litth session of the Baptist association ofSt. Louis was in session at St. Louis Friday and Saturday. THE RELIEF BONDS What Will Scdcwick County Do. In iittrsiiuiico of the iiocu-niry peti tion "iresuntcil to tliutii, the luiaicl of county coininic&ioticrs, on Monday last, submitted the question to the. people; of Sedgwick county of vot ing $S,000 in bund") for the relief of the unfortunate, and of tho-c rendered destitute bv the lute visitation of grafeslio'iiicrs or locusts. This question of bonds should have the scnou and honest consideration of every tax-payer in the county. The practical phase of the problem is just this ami nothing more: Shall ".reis sue the-e interest bearing bonds to be paid at a time in the future when we have zrown more able, or shall we al low contitv scrip to be issued in such quantities as to render it worthless al most, and to the extent Unit nobody will receive it for supplies except at ruinous discount ; and which at the last will be bought up by speculators to be hawked abou nt forty or fifty cenls on the dollar. There is but one other horn to the dilcma, those who are able mu?t go down into their pock ets and help such out of the cotu ty as cannot get out, or help to keep them here through the winter. Evidently it would be more just and cqttitnble that all bear their proportion of the bur den, relative to the amount of proper ty they own, and the taxes they pay. NobodyshouId.be allowed to starve or really suffer, and to furnish thi proper relief, money must be had in one wa or another. The law under which the proposi tion is submitted, is so carefully drawn and hedged about that it is bimply im possible for either tho board of county commissioners, overseer of the poor, or township" trustees, to squander any of the funds realized from Hie sale of bonds. Every teport of the otliccr af fording the relief must be sworn to, evcrv item of relief given, and every application must bo made under oath. and any officer or party guilty of vio lating the provisions of the act shall be adiudired "ttilty ofa misdemeanor and punished by imprisonment in the pen ilentiary. He-ides no officer is allow ed any compensation for bis services under the act. As was stated lust week, the com missioners had made n levy for the poor fund. In case the bonds carry, it is the intention of the board to sell but two thousand dollars at a time, and to stop selling the moment they can sec the way through. We arc opposed to the issuance of bonds upon principle, but when it pre scuts itself as a matter of strict econo my: when it must bo either bonds for money or two dollars of scrip for ev ery dollars worth of relief furnished by merchmts and dcalears; when speculators in county script arc "oiii'r around discouraging such is suance that they may reap a big hat vest by buying up the counties paper at half its face, then are we for bond What eight thousand dollars in money would buy in the way of provisions, could not bo purchased for thirteen or fourteen thousand in scrip, a clear saving of four or live thousand dollars, besides saving the credit of the county Many of the parties who have re ceived aid from the county have giv en their obligations to pa back with lawful interest, we arc informed by the overseer of the poor. If there was any way for the trust ces and overseer of the poor to ignore the claims of the needy, and if there was any way for the commissioners to creep out of paying the bills in scrip, then the monev shark and hard-heart ed might suy as a matter of economy, issue neither bonds or scrip, ltut then is no such way. Under their oaths of of lice they must obey the law which resolves the whole question to one of bonds and ready money for relief or depreciated scrip and a ruin ed credit. Under the enabling act referred to township trustees can command the labor of any to whom aid is furnished to the full amount upon any public highway, bridge or pttblic work, at one dollar per day. It is the opinion of many of our most ob-ervant citizens that not more than half the proposed amount will be necessary. If that should prove to be correct, then not mote than half the bonds will be issued. Resides the re lief to be furnished under the new law is much more clocly guarded and harder to obtain them under the old law. where scrip is issued to pay the bill-. We are for the bonds simply as a matter of economy to the county, and the above propositions are oflVred to those who have not thought of the question in the light presented. For tlie Kaiile Sedgwick County Wheat. IX l'Aio, ltoikfollli Ton.N-lill", j Oct. Stli, I-7J. 5 Mil. Ennoit. I thought 1 would drop you a few lines, to let yon know that the people of Rockfotd township arc still alive, grasshoppers or no grasshoppers. Wed not stop to com plain of the past, but double our dili gence and try to repair our los-es. The Farmers have been very busy for the pa-t mouth preparing their land, and sowing wheat, aud I must say that I never aw a liner prospect for a large crop of wheat than we now have in Rockford. There appears to be less grasshoppers than there was at this time last year. I hear very little com plaint of their working on the wheat. 1 will give vou the names of a few of the parlies that are sowing wheat and the amount they are -owing: II. Stciues, fifty acres; Win. Johnson, fifty acres: S. Huffbaticr, sixty acres; R. II. Hrooks, thirty acres ; Win. IIull baucr, forty acres ; A. G. Rurr, sixty six acres; J.Goodace thirty-five acres; T. Darnc, ninety acres; C. Rittmaii, forty acres: A. Law, sixty acres: J. Hough, sixiv-iive acres; II. Wood Iiougu, mi-ii" ..v..--., ... " """ I ward, twenty-live acres; II. Whayley, tvcutv-five acres ; in. Ouinnell, oiie hundred acres; A. Burnell, ninety j . .- acres; u.ioriuei mxij acius, i. oui- ten, forty acres ; J. G. Sampson, thirty acres; M. Clappen, forty acres; II. Snyder, twenty-five acres; J. McBeo forty acres. All of thc above named parties reside iu the northwestern part of the township, and I understand that the south eastern portion has done equally well. Fakmek Donothixo. The Seneca Courier notes a peculiar thing about thc sensations of the Kan sas City Times. H says: "We have noticed in the r nsaiou.il literature of the Kansas City Times l..,t W ;itvni.iqliti 'irnAC far' Cnim AllO i whom its editor-in-chief has a person-1 i -..-it ----,! tunninr Ino-alls : badlv scooped the voting mail in the ! 30, which fixe the penalty of taking nutter of the Loiel land suits; and J usurious interest the forfeiture of the Gen.

Hudson as a Farmer. There is much stress laid upon the idea of J. K. Hudson being a farmer. That's fiiimv. Just waitLntil you see him. with his pretty little soft white bunds, hi- aristocratic imperial, his sleek broad cloth, and shiny boots. Farmer, indeed, why, the evriest tail or or dry goods clerk in all southern Kansas is not so nicely dressed. Farm er? Of course! He raised fancy Berk shire pig for fancy prices upon corn at market prices, for three or four years. Farmer? Yes ! He to-day pub lishes the ollicial organ or newspaper of the state of Kansas, for which work he draws pay directly from the treas ury; a paper, too, that the law com pels us to publish all our strays in, from evcrv part of the state, and to pay for it too. That's all right, and all honorable, but it don't make him a farmer. The "Farmer' is the name of his paper, and upon the profits of a Fanner he lives, but it is a Farmer that farms out politicsas much as any thing else, and is sustained partly by state patronage. It farmed outgone Hudson and will soon farm out anoth er, but failed last winterto farm any body into the U. S. Senate. Now, J. K. Hudson is a very nice, preci8c, sensible young man, who, as a soldier, was true, as a citizen, is hon est, as an editor, sharp, as a politician, clever, but who is not a farmer, and we hope to hear no more of that cheap kind of electioneering. The people arc looking to principles first, to men second, and not to occupations or pro fession". Fourteen years ago Grant was a tanner, but he was a general and statesman also. Wilson, was -a coblcr and Chas. Sumner a classical scholar, and lawyei,but both proved statesmen of the highest type. Perry B. Mason. of Lyon county, a chronic office seeker and until recently a federal office hol der, who was a candidate before the Republican congressional convention at Emporia, has bolted. Those who know him be-t will feel Tory sad, in a horn. He has taken tne stump for the pretty pig propeller and the reform ers fancy farmer, J. K. Hudson. Per ry wants another land office. We hope Hudson, if elected, won't inflict him upon Wichita. This sweet old office holder and deceasod politician is trav eling around the district in the role of a farmer, alleging that Judge Brown is a salary grabber, because he receiv ed a deScit under a decree of the su preme court, carried to that court by John R. Goodiu the reform nominee the second district. When such men as Perry B. Maxon goc whining around the country charging such men as Judge Brown with corruption, it is enough to disgust decent men with politics. Abbott at Winfletd. Nelson Abbott and J. K. Hudson couldn't travel together even if they do stand upon the same platform. Abbott visited this part of the state alone, and thereby hangs a tale, Be ing alone at Winfield as here, James Kellcy, who knew Abbott in Macomb, Illinois, and seeing the poor fellow was without protection, took the lloor and told the audience that Abbott published a scandalous, copper-head paper in Macomb during tlie war, and only saved hi- press by taking the o.i til of allegiance. Re stated that Abbott's paper counseled resilience to the draft, advised desertion, and so incensed and encouraged the copper heads at home as to catt-e the murder of XV. II. Randolph, the deputy pro-vo-t marshal. He also accused Ab bott of Felling lottery tickets to di po-o of his own property in Macomb, and then sold the property at private -ale and left the country with his tick et money in his pocket. Abbott de nied all these charges, but Mr. E. 1. Kiiuip, of Arkansas Cit', who also knew Abbott and his history, happen ed to be present r.ud at once arose and verified Mr. Kelly's statement. Great applause followed Mr. Kelly's expos ure of Abbott. We see it stated that the reform committee has withdrawn Abbott from the canvass. It is well. Much time and expense would be saved by drawing oil" Hudson, Cusey and the Vest of the ticket if they only knew it. Cosmopolitical. Our reform friends in convention la-t Saturday appeared to be actuated by the most liberal views and compre hensive policy. 'No pent up Utica,-' could repre.-s their noble ambition; no county or even state lines were permitted to cut oil" a representation of the whole people. A man by the name of Carter, u re-ident of Sumner county, a man who wa beat in his own county la-t fall, was rcccommcud cd as a delegate by the committee on credentials and the fellow actually tried twice to obtain the floor. But a man by the name of J. B. Carey, from Maroa, Macon county, Illiuoi-, and an office holder in that state, actually re presented Garden I'laines, and as a delegate made motions aud voted the entire strength of that township. If that i- a specimen of the reformers political reform and should it come in to power the people of Garden I'laines township, may expect to be represent ed next year by an 0age Indian, or a Mexican Greaser. Judgo Brown on tho Stump. Hon. Wm. II. Brown, republican nominee for congress, and Hon. Ed. Russell, of Leavenworth, addressed our people at the court house on Wed nesday evening. There was a good audience present. Judge Peyton pre sided. We have not room for a synopsis of the speeches. All we have heard ex press themselves were well plea-ed with Judge Brown's talk. It was a plain straight-foward statement of the political situation, aud an able defense of tho republican party. It was ut terly free from rant, cant and clap tr-in It It was liianlv, logical and sound.

The convention f Hits Sedgwick county people' reform party met at Miller's: hall, S5.ttnrd.iy, October ad, at 12 o'clock in., and wa- called to order by Dr. C. C. Furley, the chairman ot the central committee, who stated in his remarks that the convention was not a meeting of sorehead republicans, or democrats, as such, but a meeting of the people in the interest of reform in the politics of the country. As re formers they were in favor of elect ing post masters and U.S. senators by a direct vote of the people, closing with other appropriate remarks. The convention completed a tempo rary organization by the election of Esquire Ilartwcll, from Park town ship, as chairman, and XV. J. Ilobbs, of Wichita, as secretary. On motion of Wm. Lockard, a com mittee of three were appointed on credentials, consisting of the follow ing gciitlomcn: Dr. Furley,. Tames M. Hammond aud L. Scott. On motion of Wm. Lockard, a com mittee of three were appointed on rules and permanent organization consisting of V. C. Lockhart, George Harris and M. A ley. On motion of James Dagucr a com mittee on resolutions was appointed consisting of five gentlemen, namely: Dr. Greenlee, James Dagner, T. B. Cartwright, Wm. Carey and C. Wood Davis. Sir. Harris was by consent added to the above committc. The convention adjourned until 2 o'clock p. in. Considerable trouble was experi enced by the committee on credentials in filling up the delegations from the various townships, and the conven tion did not come to older until about half past 2, when the committee on credentials inadu the following report of townships and names of delegate-: Xinneseah Zarah JlcChuig.

It was futhcr recommended that! Rev. Carter, of Sumner county, be ad mitted as a delegate from Garden Plains. The report was adopted. The committee on permanent organ ization reported in favor of the tem porary chairman and secretary being made permanent officers. Tho com mittee recommended that a majority vote be necessary to a choice, and that partial delegations cast theeutirc vote of their township or ward. The committee on resolutions then made the following report through A. Harris : Whereas, The universal ollicial prolligacy and corruption that permeates all the depart ments of the administration of the govern ment both state and national trom the highest ollicial- to the lowest subordinates, admon ishes, patriot-, no matter by what party names they may have called themselves, that to re store the administration or gov eminent to the Jellersoniaii standard or capability and integ rity it must be ellectcd by the co-operation of tne people ol an panics iij.il are reauy to ig nore paity lor country.

Dr. Furley moved that the conven tion now proceed to an informal bal lot for representative. Judge Fisher moved that nomina lions be made, which was carried. Mr. Fisher then moved that Win. F. Jewett, of Park township, be nomina ted by acclamation, which was carried without a dissenting voice. Mr. Jcwctt then appeared in re sponse to a call aud thanked the con vention for the honor conferred. He had not been a candidate. If elected he proposed to do his duty without regard to rings or corporations. James Dagner moved that all further candidates be chosen by ballot, which was earned. The clerk of court being next in or der, Geo. Harris nominated Geo. W. Reeves, (the republican nominee). Said he was the best man. Dr. Furley disagreed to this, lie said if the republican party had the best man why then vote their ticket. Judge Fisher said he was in favor of the reform party taking just such men as they chose, and he was in favor of Geo. W. Reeves if he was the nominee of the other party. Judge Harris was also in favor of Geo. W. Reeves ; thought it would give the greatest satisfaction to the bar. He moved that the rules be sus pended and that Geo. Reeves be nom inated by acclamation. Mr. Furley said he had no personal objection to Mr. Reeves: he was a good man, but he knew tliat Mr. Reeves would be in honor bound to stand by the other ticket, and for that reason he was in favor of putting a man of their own in the field, and suggested the name of A. Ralph, of Illinois township. Mr. Carey then moved that we pro ceed to ballot for district clerk by ap pointing two tellers. Mr. Hammond and Moore were appointed tellers, Dr. Furley made the point of order ihat there were gentlemen spcakin " confusion ciisuctl. Several gentlemen i Upon motion it was ordered that Upon motion thc delegates vote bv townships as tIlc' wcre called. j Here came trouble as to thc vote of j ininoi- t0Vl-Ilship bv Mr. Mann, who j . . , .!

The first ballot for clerk of district court resulted, A.U. Ralph, 46 ; G.W. Reeves, 25; whereupon Mr. Ralph was declared the nominee of the conven tion. James IL Dagner nominated George II. English for couuty attorney. B. II. Fisher nominated S. M. Tucker and James Hammond nominated B. II. Fisher, for the same office, which re sulted, Fisher 18, Tucker 8, English 50, whereupon Geo. II.

Emporia from its peculiar situation secjns destined to become, quite an ec clesiastical, as well as educational and commercial center. Less than three vears ago tho M. E. confeicncecoiivcn at that place, last year the state Sun day school convention ; last week the Presbytery of Emporia, and the still larger body, the Synod of Kansas, The Presbytery of Emporia was open ed on Tuesday evening with a sermon by the retiring Moduator, the Rev. J. E. Platter, of Winfield. The Rev. A, D. Jack, of Eureka, was elected Modu ator. Since the last spring meeting, three new ministers have conic into its bounds, and two churches have been added to the roll. Measures were taken to supply every one of the forty-one churches under the care of this body cither in part or on every Sabbath. The overture of the General Assem bly in reference to the charge in the form of government, on the matter of Rotary Eldership, was answered in the atlirmntivc. The next regular meeting of the Prcsbvterv is to be held in Wichita on the 1st Thursday in April next. On Thursday the Synod of Kansas convened and was opened with a ser mon by flic retiring Moduator, Rev. J A. Andcison, president of the Agri cultural College. The Rev. D. M. Moore, of the Hutchinson, was elected Moduator lor the ensuing year. This Synod comprises all the Presbyterian churches in this state, the Indian Ter ritory and in Texas. The presence of two Indian missionaries and a native preacher, and the report of a commit tee appointed to.visit the churches in that region, naturally brought the In dian question rather prominently be fore this body. In a resolution adopt ed, our national and state authorities arc called upon to respect the solemnly plighted faith of the government in every treaty made with this people, and to resist to anv needful extent every attempt to encroach upon, and wrest from the Indian his property, aud other rights. The Rev. J. Ro? Ramsay, who has been for twenty-live years a missionary among this people and who stands as straight as an ar row, with Rev. Porting, a native preacher, sang some hymns and choc uses in the Greek language. Though the tunes were peculiar yet there was a sweetness in their melodv that at tracted the attention of all. The Synod took measures to prose cute the work among the Indians with increasing vigor. The destitution existing in this state from the recent calamities came up in adiscussion to addopt a resolution ap pointing a day of fasting ami prayer. The members from the more highly favored and older portions ofthe state, thought rather that a day of thanksgiv ing should be appointed to express their gratitude to God, because the recent calamities were not worse than was at first expected. Those minis ters, who came from the west and southwest, had some facts to lay be fore the body, of the want and suffer ing existing, and yet with all of the hopefulness of the settlers, that moved every heart with sympathy. No defin ite action, was taken upon the subject. Through the kindness of president Pomcroy of the Normal school, the members of the Synod visited that in stitution on Friday afternoon. Most of our readers have seen this beautiful building, as it stands at the head of the main business street in Emporia. The interior of the structure is well arranged. The pupils, among whom we noticed several Wichita young ladies, were assembled in the large chapel. An examination in rhetoric was heard, and the young ladies went through a series, gymnastical evolu tions to the interest of the spectators. On Friday evening a Sabbath school meeting was held, in which a number of stirring speeches were delivered by the members of the Synod. The next place of meeting of the Svnod i Atchison. Letter From Hon. D. P. Lowe. The following cloqueut letter from Hon. D. P. Lowe, was read to thc mass meeting at Ottawa, on last Sat urday, and received with great ap plause: Ft. Score, Kak.. Sept. 20, 1S7I Major T. C.IiotcUs: My Dt:.n Sin- I received yester day vonr favor, inviting me on behalf the Republican club, of your county, to address amass meeting an Ottawa, on the 25th inst. I regret that my en gagements arc snch as to prevent rae from accepting the invitation. I hope vou may have a succc-slul inaugura tion of the campaign. Never ince thc close of thc war has there been a time when the country Hood in greater need of Republican success and the continuance of Republican rule than at present. The old clement of bate to human rights and human equality, which first brought on the war, and afterwards shaped itself intoKu-klux murder, is again under the Shiboleth f the White League, organizing to crush out civil liberty and ncntralizc the effect of the constitutional amend ments. Tlic new Louisiana rebellion and the murder and lcrrori-m throughout thc South, should be accepted s a warn luiin blood that thc issues left by the war are not vet .ettled, ad that the status of justice and equal civil and nnliticn! rio-hta f.ir all is not acnuicsc-i ed ill. Evcrv Democratic -success uu der whatever name, and here it as sumes the guise of reform, is a beacon light to the new revolution and rebel lion, organizing to nullify the laws ot the land. The attitude of the Presi dent is right, and the hands of the UOClUIIIC.Il. SIlOUllI c,c- .ucilgiututu by the svmpathv anil support ot its loval citiens, With a patriotic ticket tn'tbn field, and with candidates for Pnn.rri.ss tried and true, two of whom have fought in the field and in the w a " -- halls of Consress for the ideas and the status of a regenerated couutry. I hope to see the Republicans of Kansas rally again to their staudard and carry it to the front of victory. I rtynani yours very sincerely, D. P. Lowe.
