Romembcrtlio Republican primary meetings aud county convenlion. The township primaries will be held at each voting precinct next Saturday. May 6th, at 2 o'clock. Each precinct will elect two delegates for the county convention which meets tho Saturday following at Eagle Hall, at which time delegates to tho State Convention will be chosen. The Stato Convention meets at Topcka ou the 24th of 3Iay and will send ten delegates to Cincin nati. Sedgwick county having ao district committees as yet will elect her dele gates at large. Our county is, under the call, entitled to four delegates to Topeka, two for each representative district. We hope tho Republicans through out the county will not neglect send ing up delegates to tho county con vention. Geo. B. Peck for Governor. If there is any job being put up on Geo. It. Peck wo would like to bo let into the details. Every few days we see some mysterious intimations that such and such delegations will be for Geo. R. Peck for Governor. For the life of us we can't think of any reason objection to urge against his nomina tion and election only, if that is the programme the Eaole doesn't like to be left fluttering around in the dark. The Silver Prospect. Treasurer 2fcw says tho different sub-treasuries will pay out within the next week about $10,000,000 in silver, and after that the supply will be great er than the demand. It is very likely that within two mouths Congress will pass au act increasing the legal tender of silver, aud that the mint capacity of the country will be considerablo increased. One More for Tilden. The Louisvilo Courier-Journal the most influential Democratic paper in the west, has come out for Tilden for tho Presidency. Tho Houdricks men are sorely exercised thereat. Tho fact is, the Democrats cannot afford to lose the vote of .New York and Tilden is the only man that can carry it for their side. They Cin't See It The Secretary of War and tho Post master General have peremptorily de clined to trust the archives of their re spective departments to investigating committees of tho House which have demauded them, for tho reason that the present clerks of those committees aro men who were discharged from tho departments for utter worthless tcss, and that they arc not fit persons to be trusted with official records or any thing else. A Democratic Row. A personal altercation occurred at Washington 041 tho 26th iust., between Representative Blackburn aud ex Ropresentativc Dan Voorhees, of Indi ana, both bitter Democrats. Black burn assailed Voorhees for defending tho purity of tho district judiciary,aud said it was corrupt and used by "job bers." Voorhees resented this, and said it did uot become a member of the present House, which could not be trusted, and was composed largely of dishonest men to talk about tho purity of the court, which was honest. Black burn, at this point, became greatly ex cited, and denounced Voorhees per sonally, and the parties would have come to blows had uot their friends in terfered. Just Think cf It. The Republican State Convention of the State of Arkausas declined to put a ticket in tho field because nothing is to be expected from tho party in pow except a repetition of tho fraud per petrated in the election of 1874, when the Democratic parly in twenty-nine counties polled 9,000 more votes than there, were male residents over tweuty 0110 years of age, as shown by the census. Characteristic. Holmau, of Indiana, the great apos tle of soft money, was the first mem ber of Congress to make application tion to the Sergcant-at-Arms for silver. Economy With a Vengeance. Tho appropriation committee of tho Democratic House of Representatives has decided to destroy all fast mail ser vice, and in this respect entirely crip ple the Post Office Department, aud place it aud the Government at the mercy of tho railroads. Under tho plea of economy the committee pro pose to deprive the people of the ben efit of the present fast mail service, and to give the railroads the power to charge what they choose for rapid transportation. Ben. Butler Butted. The Massachusetts Republican Con vention gave Gen. Butler a side wipe when it placed R. II. Dana at the head of its delegation to Cincinnati. His defeat of Dana's confirmation will yet prove a sore thing for him. The Indian Question. The House of Representatives has passed the bill transferring the control of the Indians to the War Department. The west will unanimously favor this move. Sold Oat. John Campbell has sold his paper, the Osage City Free 1'ress, to Mr.Mor gan. Campbell goes to Neosho Falls where he expects to cngago in the dry goods business. Mr. C. had won quite name and reputation as a writer in the State, aud we arc inclined tr think lie has missed it in selling out. Cool Bat Correct. A man lectured iu Cincinnati the other night aud alluded to the fact that Thackeray hadn't endowed his female characters with much brains. Then wiping off Ins chin he said he didn't know that Thackeray was to blame, as God Almighty had set him tho exam ple. The Cincinnatiaus waited for him at the door with a club. The Commissioners have recently made a full aud accurate statement of the financial condition of the great en terprise. The entire cost, estimating the expenditures up to the time when the gates will finally close in Novem ber, foots up 8,500,000, of which $7, 000,000 have already been raised. There reHwinVthcreforc, SOOjOOO to be re- ceifi at Mm fikar" " For tbo Eagle. Crooked Creek, April 30, 18G7. Editor Eaole: I have not writ inn von in some time, therefore I J thought a few items would not be out of place. A gentleman from Ohio came in a few days ago and cast his lot with us by settling on tho Cowskin. When he reached Topcka a man told him that they ate a mail every morning in Wichita; that ho had bottcr settle near Topeka. But, as the man couldn't see it in that light, ho came ou,rcachcd Wichita, found he had a splendid farm site, aud was well pleased and has yet to learn that wo aro cannibals. What can Topcka say noxt of U3? Our men say wheat is knee high aud looking beautiful. Judging from the tide of emigration that is rolling by with teams loaded with lumber, day after day, one would suppose there could not bo a quarter section left unsettled in the country. But the cry is, still they come; men, women, children, pigs, chickens, cows tied ou behind, and some come with old Malices cats. And now pray tell "Farmer Doolittle" to stop talking about taxing the cats when they are worth so much to us by catching tho rabbits, prairie mice, gophers, etc. A young man in town owns two bird dogs out this way, and could ho sec them just now would thiul; they were fitting themselves for the spring races aud from tho effects of running jack rabbits. Oh, such bones ! What will be done with them now that it is unlawful to hunt birds. No sheep for them to kill so as to get them behead ed. What's to be done with the bird dogs, aud also the old bachelors that aro in our couutry ? Will "Farmer Doolittle reply ? S. K. INGALLS' RAniKOAD LAND BILL A LA"W. Prior Settlers to Get Their Homes. Tho bill introduced by. Senator In galls last December, to secure settlers upon railroad lauds their rights, has become a law and a copy is before us. The new law changes tho whole policy of tho Government with referouco to tho railroads aud the settlers. The man who, in good faith, made settle ments upon railroad lands previous to their withdrawal from market, will now get his rights, his home. Wo believe quito a number of set tlers in Sedgwick, Harvey and Reno and other western counties will, under this law, get justice, without cost or trouble. Tho Senator deserves, and will re ceive the thanks of the entire people of, uot only Kansas, but all other wcttern States where railroad land grants exist. The following is the bill: An act to confirm pre-emption and homestead entries of public lands within the limits of railroad grants in cases where such entries have been made under tho regulations of the Land Department. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the Unit ed Stales of America in Congress as sembled, That all pre-emption and homestead entries, or entries in com pliance with any law of the United States, of the public lands, made in good faith, by actual settlers, upon tracts of land of not more than one hundred and sixty acres each, within the limits of any laud grant, prior to the time when notice of the withdraw al of tho lands embraced in such grant was received at the local land office of the district in which such lands arc situated, or after their restoration to market by order of the General Land Office, and where the pre-emption and homestead laws have been complied with, and proper proofs thereof have been made by the parties holding such tracts or parcels, they shall be con firmed, and patents for the same shall issue to the parties entitled thereto. Sue. 2. That when at the time of such withdrawal as aforesaid valid pre-emption or homestead claims ex isted upon any lauds within the limits of any such grants which afterwards were abandoned, and, under the deci sions anil rulings of tho Land Depart ment, were rc-enteicdby pre-emption or homestead claimants who have complied with the laws governing pre emption or homestead entries, aud shall make the proper proofs required under such laws, such entries shall be deemed valid, aud patents shall issue therefore to the person entitled thereto. Sec. 3. That all such pre-emption aud homestead entriet which may have been made by permission of the Land Department, or in pursuance of the rules aud instructions thereof, within tho limits ot any laud grant at a time subsequent to expiration of such grant, shall be deemed valid, and a compli ance with the laws and the making of tho uroof required shall entitle the holder of such claim to a patent there for. Approved, April 2J, 1876. The Unite! States District Court. The Grand Jury of the United States District Court, at Topeka, before be ing discharged, last Saturday, brought iu a number of bills indicting a large number of prominent mon of different sections of the State, for having a hand in lottery schemes. The Common wealth says : "Amoug other bills found were seven against the managers of the Atchison Immigrant Aid Association; four against the managers of the Fort Scott Conceit; 0110 against -the old Leavenworth Association, and three against the managers of the Topeka Librarv Aid Association. The grounds of the indictment arc for distributing circulars and letters of an "illegal lot tery" in the United States malls. Tho laws of the United Statc3 allow such matter to be mailed iu States where tho carrying on of such institutions arc not '-'"illegal." It claimed on the part of the managers that it is uot "il legal iu Kansas, because no penalty is provided against them. The Atchi son gentlemen who were indicted, moved tho court to quash the indict ments against them for the above aud other reasons. When this motion was made tho court was about to adjourn, aud the attorneys had no time to hunt up tho authorities, yet arguments were made by Thomas Fenlon and Judge Webb, occupying some three hours. It being a new case in this State aud one not heretofore adjudi cated, and the sact that time did not allow a careful examination of the au thorities, the Judge took the case un der advisement till the next term of court. Both sides are to file briefs in the case iu due time. The penalty, iu case of conviction, being a small line, bail was fixed iu the sum of two hun dred dollars personal recognizance. Lawyers who have examined the case themselves and looked up the authori ties, arc clear in their opinion that the institutions are uot illegal in this State, and that the court will, when it examines the case, quash the indict ments. The court will finally adjourn this morning." Assessment of Railroads. By the figures given in another col umn it will be seen that tho total as sessment of railroad property iu this Stats has beenincreascd by nearly four millions of dollars over the amount of last year. J he assessed value of railroad prop erty in the State amounts to the mag nificent 6um of $16,200,000. The s'ystcm of assessment which has finally been adopted.will probably give satisfaction both to tho people and the companies. It will be to the interest of the companies to accent this as a fi nality and to pay their taxes promptly hike other property holders. Lawrence ' Journal. Railroad Assessment. The Slate Board of Railroad Asses sors in session at Topeka, last week, agreed upon the valuation of the sev eral lines of road in tho State, as fol lows, which iucludes the right of way, the road-bed and permanent way, all main and side tracks, depots, shops and buildings, and all machinery, mo live power and rolling stocks, credits and capital stock : Tiixalle Value Eoadt. si. ir. ,t t M.

If he fails in that he will be a candidate for tho Uni ted States Senate from Illinois. The old tree in Cambridge, Massa chusetts, made famous by the poem of Longfellow entitled "The Village Blacksmith," has been cut down and it will bo made into-relics, including a chair, which will be presented to the author of the poem. According to Tice a number of first class storms will be launched in this "mcrrv month of May." The woman suffrage movement met a disastrous defeat, in the House of Commons. THE TEXAS CATTLE TRADE.

The officers of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fc railroad are continually "hatching up" something new iu the way of advertising their line. It is well known to every Kansan that this company will make a display in the Kansas-Colorado building at Philadel phia. They have loaded all their products for the display in a baggage car labeled and lettered for tho occa sion, and decorated with sixty Nation al Hags. The car presents a splendid appearance, aud will be run through to Philadelphia, via St. Louis, Indi anapolis aud Pittsburgh, making, as far as possible, daylight runs so that the people in the deserts of the cast can see wnai wc navu 111 iv-insus. xnu car will leave the Santa Fo depot at Monday noon and will be given a good "send off" by the Capital Brass Baud, which has been engaged for the occa sion. The car stands on the track near tho depot to-day, and should be visited and "interviewed" by every resident of the city who takos an in terest iu the Kansas display at Phila delphia. Commonwealth. How It Works. Tho bright, beautiful silver coins continue to bo exchanged at tho sub treasuries for the worn, greasy, filthy littlo fractional shinplastei's ; but while a good many thousand dollars in silver have thus been paid out, very little or none of it can be said to have gone in to circulation. As one remarks: "It will be .ffortnight before the coin will bo seen by the horse-car conductors. A week later it will be seen sporadi cally iu the lager beer saloons. In an other week it will drop iu the plate at the churches ; in a month it will be at tho corner groceries, next it will reach the bootblacks." Rut it will be a full year before the country will be satura ted, and the people will cry, "hold, enough." Instead of forty millions it will require a hundred millions-to sat isfy the demand for silver money. Ev ery piece of this coinage in circulation will bo an argument against rag-bauy shinplastcrs that will be felt aud ap preciated. Chicago Tribune. Incorporation cf ths Arkansas Valley Railroad.

Tho trial of Willis Jackson, charged with the murder of William McDow ell on the 20th day of July, 1873, was terminated in the District Court at 8 o'clock a. m. yesterday, when the jury in the case returned a verdict of guilty of murder in the first dczree.as charged in tho information. The prisoner heard the verdict without the move ment of a muscle or tho slightest per ceptible change of countenance. Tho evidence of course was all circumstan tial but convincing as to tho guilt of tho prisoner; and was about the same as given before tho coroner's jury and as published in tho Press at the time of the murder. The prosecution was ably conducted bv County Attorney J. Wade McDon ald, assisted by L.J. Webb, of Win field. The defense was represented by II. C. Sluss, of Wichita, aud Messrs. Woods & Ilerrick, of this city, who distinguished themselves in their ef forts to avort the impending doom of tho accused; but tho ovidenco of guilt was overwhelming and swept away all theories to the contrary. After the verdict Mr. Sluss gave notice that he would make a motion for a new trial and for an arrest of judgment. Tho case of R. M. Neal, charged with tho murder of James 11. Turner on the 2d dav of November last, was then called.' Sumner County Press. Kan3i3 and Nebraska Reception and Sooiabh. The Kansas and Nebraska Associa tion gavo a reception and sociable, on Thursday evening' at Tallmadge Hall, which proved a most agreeable affair. The hall presented a handsome ap pearance, decorated with the National colors and hanging baskets of rare ex otics in a most tasteful manner, which reflects great credit on the artistic skill of Mrs. Benjamin Nute, who has charge of tho decorations. Senators Ingalls and Hitchcock made short and appropriate addresses. The attend ance, which was quito large, was com posed of our most prominent belles and bcaux.who enjoyed the cxhilariat ing waltz, to the superb music fur nished by Professor Morgan's orches tra, until far into Friday morn, when all departed with plessaut remem brances ot the evening's delight. Washington Card-Basket. The Way it is Done. Four years ago the soreheads got a National Presidential Convention, and through the channel thus opened poured out their venom. Now the Confederate House of Representatives afiords a more convenient medium. Disappointed office seekers and decap itated dead-beats give out mysterious hints of important revelations damag ing to tho Republican Administration. Presently some committee subpeenas the malcontent, aud he goes to Wash ington at tho Government expense to tell what he knows and does not know derogatory to some one high in au thority. Thus far Belknap alone has been bagged, notwithstanding all their desperate efforts to involve other Cabinet officers and men high in au thority. Much is "rumored," but nothing developed and Madame Ru mor is always the convenient servant of calumny. Centennial Eagle. Tho following flattery from the Par sons Suit overcomes us : It was a big old Centennial that tho Wichita Eagle issued last week. It was a splendid tributo to the enter prise, push and pluck of tho genial and gushing Marsh. Thero aro few editors in the State who possess more true in wardness than M. M. Murdock. His Eagle is au elegant bird. Wo have made a careful computation and find that Marsh has been of $500,000 for accuracv wo leave off the cents value to Wichita. Wichita would not havo been Wichita except for tho Eaole. Tho pretty picture of his modest home was grateful and pleasing to our eyes. Aud so we said tho Sun and its 5,000 extra edition shall" say a good word for the magnificent pluck of Wichita and for our genial, generous friend Marsh. A. T. Stewart never fooled any tnon ev awav on expensive signs but was a persistent aud sagacious advertiser in the newspaper press. The Second Congressional District. We have from time io time pub lished articles from other papers relat ing to candidates for Congress in this district. We stated at the time wc published a letter written by tho To pcka correspondent of the Kansas City Jourdal of Commerce, that wc would very give our views on the subject. Wo" havo waited so that we might be able to learn the feelings of represents tive men in the district. It has not been our wish to lead, but rather to reflect public sentiment. With this end in view, wo have, during the past mouth, corresponded or talked with a very large number of persons in the district. Wo have watched the tone of the press, which usually reflects the feelings of their readers. From these sources we have come to the conclu sion that the presont incumbent, Judge Browu, has very littlo strength in the district, and that his reuomination is, to say the least, very improbable. Our readers are requested to bear in mind that in this article wc are trying to give the state of public feeling, and and not what we wish that it was. The only other names that are serious ly mentioned iu connection with that office aro Col. Holliday and Thomas Ryan, both of this city. We confess to a warm personal feeling for Col. Holliday. This arises from lonsc asso ciation with him aud a knowledge of what ho has done for Topcka. Xo res ident of Topcka has more claims on our citizens than the Colonel. Those who havo coma here during the past six or ton years probably do not real ize this, but every early settler does. Take it on tho ground of what is due for past services and no man deserves that position more than Colonel Hol liday. But it must be remembered that this is a largo district aud that Topcka has but a small vote in a con vention. It is tho wholo district that makes tho nomination. Wc are satis lied that Col. Hollidar could not be nominated if Shawuco county should present his name to the convention, and from all that we can learn we do not believe that as against Mr, Ryan he could carry this county. The reasons for this arc various and aro well stated in the Kansas City Journal correspondence to which wc havo referred. Besides his connec tion witli railroadi, which in somo places would oprrate to disadvantage, there are old prejudices iu the State against him growing out of matters in condectiou with tho location of the capijtol at Topeka, which, as wo have before stated, it is doubtful if ho ever overcomes. Wo believe that the feel ing iu the district is strong and marked against both Col. Halliday aud Judge Brown. From alii that wc can learn the feeling is strong for Thomas Ryan. From all parts of the district we are iu receipt of letters asking us if Tope ka was not going to present the name of Mr. Ryan as a candidato tor Con gress, aud at the same time stating that if that was dqno the writers would use their influence to secure his nomi nation. This expression comes from every county and nearly every pre cinct iu the Slate. Wo now. say to the Republicans of the district that Shaw nee county will, without a doubt, be a unit iu the convention for Mr. Ryan. It is unneccssarv to write encomiums on ability, possessed by few men of his age, of .Mr. lcyan. Jlo is well known. That he has it all will agree. That he is and always has been a tried Republican all understand. In a word, Mr. Ryan belongs to that class of ris ing youug' men in the State who are coming forward and who arc destined to have great weight in social and po litical matters. Some of our friends have feared that the candidacy of Mr. Ryan would work injury to Mr. Guth rie. We do not so deem it. They come before different conventions, the one in a State and the other in a Con gressional district. They are not iu each other's way at all. Wc have con sidered this much duo to our friends throughout wealth. the district. Common- The Next Governor. Tho canvass for Governor is going ou without any great deal of heat, and we believe no acrimony. Mr. Halder mau, of Leavenworth, is being talked of, but we judge that no ono expects he will have any particular strength iu the convention. It is unnecessary to stato the reasons, for there is not a person in tho State who is posted on the history of the Territory and State of Kansasbut what knows .that Mr. Haldermau is a gentleman iu cvory sense of the word, but he cannot, and we presume docs not expect to bo nominated for Governor of Kansas, by a Republican convention, this year at any rate. George T. Anthony.of Leavenworth, has been talked of by his friends for tho position. Whether he really in tends to be a candidate or not we are not informed. Ho is a man of great executive ability, and in intelligence aud general qualities is the peer of the best man iu the Stato, but he has no personal popularity. He is said, whether true or not we do not know, to be overbearing and domineering, aud uot to possess the qualities to make warm personal friends. We presume from what we learn that lie will not be a candidate. If ho is, wo judge that his vote in the convention will uot bo large. Judge Bassctt, of Lawrence, is a candidate, aud is traveling over the State pretty extensively. The Judge is a man of good personal appearance and has been judge of his district for somo years, lie labors under the dis advantage of having no warm support at ins own iiome anil ucing rather un popular (perhaps unjustly) as a judge. He will work up considerable strength, but not enough, wo think, to do him any good. Vc havo heard Mr. St. John's name mentioned iu connection with the office, but know but little about his strength. Wo judge, however, from all that wo have seen aud heard, that he i3 not making much headway in the canvass. Mr, Cobb, of Wyandotte, is also a candidate. He is well known aud is full of energy and hard work, but he labors under the disadvantage of hav ing been beaten for Congress two years ago. He can hardly make much impression in the canvass. The next and last name we now re member fo have heard spoken of ns a candidato is John Guthrie, of Topeka. His name is spoken of iu all parts of the State without regard to locality. Wc judge that he has more newspaper support than all other candidates com bined, and that support has been given to him unsolicited, and in macy in stances before ho himself thought of being a candidate. Ho is well known all over the State, and Ins labors for Kansas aud the Republican party have been so constant and so unselfish that people from different parts of tho State naturally looked to him as the stan dard bearer. Ho is known to be a man of sterling integrity, against whom there is literally nothing. Although he has been prominent in Kansas pol itics for a number of years, ho is al most the only man who has been thus prominent iu tho State against whom not a word has been or can bo said. We do not remember to have seen a single reflection in any Republican pa per in tho State against him, even whore other candidates are favorites. This will go far towards giving him tho nomination. From present ap pearances he will nominated on the first ballot. We have aimed in this summary to givo the condition of the canvass for Governor as it appears to-day, and we believe that nearly every one who has looked over the ground an taken pains to get at the public pulso will agree that wc have stated matters as they exist at the present time. Common wealth. Why is it that the Democrats are so sweet on Bristow, aud so eager that the Republicans should nominate him? The Republican candidate, they know, will be pretty sure to be elected, and they. would rather have the Devil than Blaine. Bristow is tho only possible candidato who Is a soutneru man, and whom thev hope to seduce from his loyalty to Republican principles. This hope is based upon Bristow's southern birth and education, advantages which have never yet failed them, in time of need. Better that the southern Con federacy had succeeded, thau that any but the truest Republican should be elected President this year. Kansas Chief. Tho Cherokea Strip. Hon. W. R. Brown. Member of Con gress from the Third District, has in troduced a bill to open up tho Chero kee noitti-.il strip to actual settlers. In a recent letter Mr. Brown informs us that the bill is being considered in committee and that tho sub-committee having it in charge, promise a favora blo report. Should this bill becomo a law a large body of very valuable land now withdrawn", will be opened up for settlement aud pre-emption. Welling ton Press. Mr. Robert C. Winthrop. President the Washington Monument Associa tion has prepared a plan for the com pletion of the monment which has been adopted by tho association. The de sign is to abandon that part of the original plan which calls for a temple or pantheon, and erect a simple shaft 300 feet high. The purpose of surren dering the charter or allowing tho mon ument to remain unfinished or be taken down is to be abandoned, and sub scriptions are to be solicited from time to timo until the monument is com pleted. When Avery and McDonald, the St.. Louis whisky"convicts, were about to start for the penitentiary, Avery said, "My God, McDonald this is an outrage! It is au infernal shame to crush an in nocent man this way. I have always been a religious man ; lam a Christian and I am going to pray God Almighty to set this thinff rteht." McDonald replied, "Avery, if you expect to keep out of tho penitentiary by praying,you had bettor get at it quick, for wo will bo on the way iu less than twenty minutes." Just Right. The Democratic sheets are making a great howl because the expenses of registry and supervision in New York City in the olectiou iu 1872 were paid out of tho secret service fund. For our part we think the secret service fund was never put. to better use. Lawrence Journal. Alabama is opposed to the "drum mer" system ot selling goods.
