The county Republican central com
tnlttec. in conjunction with several leading
Republicans, have entended a fonnal Imi
tation to Gov. St. John to address the ltc
publicans in this city ou the occasinu of the
Republican ratification set, for October 2nd.
The Governor hag promised to be with us
and will no doubt awaken great enthusiasm
for the regular ticket and cat dismay in the
ranks of the opposition be they democrats or
JUDGI CAMPBELL'S COMMUNICATION.
Elsewhere will be found a letter from the
pen of Judge Campbell, which, if somewhat
characteristic of the man's earnestness and
radicalism, tells some plain truths. Judge
Campbell was. himself, unceremonious
ly sat down on this summer, not because of
any lack ol fitness as a judge, for lie is emi
nently qualified ns all agree, or that he was
not a Republican iu the strictest and broad
est sense, but for personal reasons. Ho ac
cepted the situation like a man and went im
mediately to work for eery nominee ot thu
party from the noble Ciarlleld down to the
smallest county ulllcer. Th.it he should feel
little charity, under the circumstances, for
diminutive soreheads, or for those whose
petty ambition overleaps their respect of
nartv oriole of principle, is not to be won
dered at. While it may be urged that house
rather strong ammunition and large call
bred artillery for such small game, jet it will
be remembered that tlicie in not a single sub
stantial reason for Mich a bolt. Had the in
significant coterie of Foreheads followed the
Judge's example and went to work for the
principles they profess to believe tlicicwould
have been no call for such attention. The
Idea that a man uf Nixun's calibre nnd po
litical standing should presume to attempt to
rupture the Republican party of Sedgwick
county; that ho should nk men gray in the
Sen ice to follow his lead at an hour like this
when every man should be as his post, is
1. 0. SLUSS FOR STATE SENATOR.

gcaee of tao nualnation, at Medicine Lodge,

Mttafl ni nlliii 'district coatpoaed of
Sadgwick, Sumner, Harper, Kingman, Har
bour and Trait counties. With unfeigned
pleasure we congratulate the people of this
district upon the selection of Mr. Slius by
tbo Republican convention. As the repre
sentative of the most populous district in
the State he w ill pro e the peer of any. Ac
knowledged as the possessor of one ol the
finest legal minds in the State, he is at the
aania time broad and comprehensive in his
liews and ever active and energetic and no
cause or Interest in tin- southwest will suffer
for want of ability to protect it. That he
will be elected by practically a unanimous
vote we do not entertain a doubt.
Wichita, Sept. 21, 1880.
Ur 1kt J4r tf On agU :
I will pay sy respects to a pair of pious
frauds, who arc ambitious to gain notoriety
by abusing me.
No. 1 is a disgruntled office-seeker from
Grant township with an nnprononneablc
name, who for several years past has been
traveling with a dark-lantern show. Being
ambitious to have charge of the educational
interests of Sedgwick county, and having
been a Vallandigham Democrat in Ohio, he
very properly changed his politics and turned
Republican. He came before the Republican
convention with the prepared statement that
while he otcd for MeClcllan in 1804, he had
not voted the Democratic ticket since, or any
fractional part thereof. This was a beauti
ful sentence, and no doubt p. f. Xo. 1. took
great credit to himself for bis ingenuity
Rut it was unsatisfactory to those who knew
that the reason he had not voted was on ac
count of his absence from any place be called
home, in the show business. Van's failure
is easily explained: he hadn't enough votes
to get there. For this he is highly Indignant.
He appears to think that the Republican par
ty owed him something, which it was a great
outrage to deny him. A pack oJ chronic
soreheads and grumblers affect to consider
him a martyr, and to avenge his wrongs they
want to beat the old soldier and Republican
wheel horse, Capt. Baldcrstou, and elect to
the office of county attorney a Smooth Lpli,
who has hardly read the code through since
lie arrived In the State, a few months
ago. Because, thty say, this driveling
nincompoop has been bulldozed, they
want to scalp Stanley, one of the bright
est joung men in the State, and scud Johnny
Carey to the Legislature, and turn over the
educational interests of this county, the for-
mation and regulation of school districtxfaud
the settlement of the many intricate contro
versies that arise in the office of Superinten
dent, to an inexperienced joung woman who
docs not cen hold an average teacher's cer
tificate. I gav e Van good adv ice w hen I told
him to show his manhood and Republicanism
by supporting the ticket nominated, which
advice ho declines to take, on the ground, as
he says, that he acts from principle and not
from policy. I pity the man who has no
higher sense of principle than this. A true
man is willing to sacrifice himself for his
country, and a Republican from principle
considers the success of his party supciior
to the selfish interests of any man, and he
will not allow his pe. -onal disappointments
to lead him imo the camp of the enemy.
Benedict Arnold might jusl as well have
claimed that he .u ted fiom piintlplc, as Van
Swcariugeu. He betrayed his country fiom
the same motive that Van bolls his pany.
Van makes btlievc that he knows some com
panions of my boyhood who speak ill of me.
Now, I feel kindly tow-aid? Van, notwith
standing his unkind insinuation. I cannot
find it in my heart to led o.hcrwbe towatds
a fool. 1 should feel favored if he would
look up my peisoii.il and po'Iiica! hislo'y
among ibosc who hate known me fiom eaily
life. If what 1 am and what I have been is
of so much impoi-aiicc iu determining ihe
issues iu this campaign, as .o justify the un
just and reckless assaults o.uhavebecn made
upon me, I thaik he wi'l find upon i.ive-.liga-liou
that wh'lc my boyhood was spent .'mid
scenes of poverty and loM ilicie arc few
woo knew tnc then who will speak i'l o" me
now. As to my political recoid, Van s mis
taken when he st.-ics that my Remiblt'cauism
dacs back no further than '03, and those
gentlemen vv'io '-have been informed and
have I cason to believe" tbrt I was a Dcnio
e.at before I ca.ue to Kansas arc also ihe vic
tims of deception. Those anxious friends
are informed that my record as a Republican
dates back to the spring and summer of 1801,
when a boy of sixteen I was one of the home
guards of lien lucky, which oigaiiizaliou de
fea ed secession and kept the State in the
Union. In October, 1GI, I enlisted iu the
anny and served du 'ing the war and came
home a Republican, djed iu the wool.

iu favor of the Civil Rights Bill.

IVnlle in Congress Mr. English did three
notable things. First, he voted against the
expulsion of Bully Brooks for his brutal a.
tack on Senator Sumner; second, he Intro
duced a bill to bribe Ihe people of Kansas
with a large land grant into adopting a slav
ery constitution ; aud third, he favwred the
removal ol troops from Washington at a time
when the secessionists were plotting to cap
ture the capital.
Notwithstanding the appieheuslou ol hood-
lunitsm, rrcsiucni naves Las uau a most cor
dial aud generous reception iu California aud
all the way across the continent. The pop
ularity of his administration, aud the respect
felt for him as a mvn, win him Ihe popular
good will every where. He confirms the re
. port that he is coming home b the Southern
Pacific route, aud it is to be hoped that he
will go the Mexican line, exchange greetings
with President Diaz and prolong his tour
through the Southern States. .racrnwerth
Hon. J. r. Anderson was nominated for
the state senate from Cherokee count) last
Saturday. No better man could have bicn
placed In nomination and he will be elected.
At the same time D. B. Grose was nomiua
ed for the house from the -list district same
county ; Oscar McDowell from the 12 district,
and H. R. Hubbard lrom the 43d district.

GOVERNOR ST. JOHN.
Tkt Tojula Pott asks w hr Tie Timet sup
ports Governor St. Soli n to-day when a short
title ago wo "denounced him as unworthy
and Incompetent to fill the high and honor
able position of gov cs nor of Kansas." Tkt
Tttt is wrong iu plating such language to
ur credit- Tie Timet never said one un-
. kind word of Governor St. John. What we
did say was that there were some men in
Kansas who were more entitled to the noint
mation than Mr. SU Johu, and we men toned
-Messrs. Martin. Thachcr, Klug, Murdoek
aad others who had spent a life time in this
state. We preferred the pit-sent governor to
saany of those who were his competitors for
tke nomination. It is true that we do cot
agree with him as far as the prohibition
amendment is concerned, but he doe not
believe that should be made apolitical ques
tion and there we agree with h'm. Gov
ernor St. John is not such a bad man as he
kaabeeu painted. He has bis foibles and his
Weaknesses. Woo has not? But h(has
aaAde a creditable executive, and the honor
the state has not suffered at his hands.
But I must not forget my p. f. Xo. 2. who
imagines that he is siifllciciitly popular to
"d'siiiterate" the RcpuMica.i pa ty of the
Wil represun.i'ivc dis lid and accomplish
the election of a Democrat, to thcl.egisla.ure.
The nomination of Mr. Stanley was a fair
n.id honest expression of the will of the ma-
jo, i.y of the district couvenllon. There is
no good reason why he should not receive
tbc full Republican vole. Lea NIxou tried
hard to be a uelcgaie ;o the convention, but
his dtiplVity was discovc ed in .line, rnd he
suffered an ignominious defeat. Iu revenge
for this he published a 1 ing report about the

tively sets abo.il creating f.'lsc impres

The B. 1 0. Red Book Its Value as a Text-Book
for Political Reference and its Exceed
ing Beauty as a Work of Typo
The Baltimore & Ohio, since Lord assumed
sway of the Passenger Department, has most
empirically come to the front in taking, and
at the same time elegant advertising matter.
Recognizing the elevation of taste in matters
of an advertising character, and the ileniind
as well for something of more value that the
mcro setting forth of the advantages of the
road, the B. tfcO. has just issued what it
terms the "Red Book." It is beyond all com
pari son the cleverest thing of the kind issued
by a railaoad company, of typographical art
it is a perfect gem. The cover, designed and
engraved by the American Bank Note Com
pany, and the book itself, from the press of
Knight & Leonard, of this city, very many
persons will Keep it for its beauty alone. But
while the artistic has been the aim in the ex
ternal appearance, the contents of the little
w ork will be fouud of the utmost rawe from
now until the close of the present poiUieal
struggle. Without pretentions, aid simply
setting forth farts, the B. O. Red book is
beyead comparison, the handest and most
compact political text-book or the campaign.
Compiled, results reach and arranged by an
old journalist of many ) ears' experience in
politicd statistics, the states arc 6o placed,
and the detail so carefully attended to, that
at a glance one comprehends the situation"! n
each state. First, the vote of each party for
president in 1870 is given, with the total vote
of the state, the majority and ctcctoral vote.
Next come the details of the latest election
tor the state officers, followed by the politi
cal complexion of tbe Irgisturc, with the
fact noted that a United States Senator is to
elected this winter, il such be the case.
Then comes the result in each congressional

votes that year to the 'population of two

were the names Col. H. C St. Clair and

proceeded homeward, all leeliog quite satisfi

Sluss is a very able and talented man and
will fi'l the offlce with great credit, both to
himself and his constiluants. Ccldttell Pott.
The Journal was among tbe first, if not
the first paperin thedisttict to expreavits
intention of supporting Hon. B. C. Clus,
(or there-nomination as Slate Senate-. It
is, therefore, gratifying to us to be able to
announce his complete endorsement in the
Convention at Medicine Lodj;elat Tuesday.
Receiving the nomination on first ballot by
the strong majority or 19 to 10 be enters the
race under tbe most favorable auspices. It
is all the more creditable to h'm that he was
successful over so able a competitor as Col.
St. Clair, a popular and excellent man
against whom nothing could be said 'o his
prejudice. Sir. Sluss will undoubtedly poll
the full vole of bis district and contribute
his full share to the popularity and final suc
cess of his party in the State. Anthony Jour
Hon. 11. C. Sluss was nominated for slate
senator by the republican convention, in
Mediciue Lodge, on the llih inst. We arc
glad that the Kingman boys so heartily aid
ed in tbe nomination of Mr. Sluss. We can
not sec w hy tbe v oters of Kingman will not
be well protected in our nest legislature
w ith such men as Mr. Sluss iu the senate
and Sir. Gillett in the house, both being
men of ability and willing to do all in their
power for our best interest. Xiajnan

To Tkt Uitor of tkt Sfit .- Fa
I take great pleasure, now that the Sena
torial race in the Republican party is over,
in saying to each and all of my friend, who
gave me their hearty and zealous snpport for
the position of Senator, before and during
the Senatoricl convention, that you have my
thanks for the friendly effort put forth to se
cure my nomination .for that position, audi
shall, always cherish ajthankful recollection of
you for your kindness. My chief regrets are
that upon failing to secure the nomination, is
teh-grcat disappointment experienced by my
many friends that gave me their support.
However since the result is not as we de
sired, we feel the necessity of laboring for
the success of the party in whose interest I
was a candidate. Respectfully yours,
H. C. St. Clair.

Hon. II. C. Sluss was nominated at Siedi
cinc Lodge last Tuesday, for the scnatorhip
of this, the thirty-eighth, district, on the
first ballot by a v ole of 19 for H. C. Sluss and
10 for II. C. St. Clair. Sir. Sluss was not our
preference for the position before the conven
tion, but the Prttt will now use all honora
ble efforts to make his election doubly cer

H. C. Sluss was nominated for State Sena
tor at Medicine Ixdge last Tuesday.
Green's delegates were admited, but the
men who seated them afterward acknowl
edged that it was wrong, but thay wanted
their man nominated. Sir. SIus has made a
good Senator and will of course "get there"
again Harper Timet.
Hon. II. C Sluss, of Wichita, received
the nomination for State Stnator on the first
ballot bya vote of 19 to 10. Score one for

It is with no little pleasurclhat we record
the nomination of Hon. II. C. Stus for re
election at Medicine Lodge on Tuesday.
The convent ion acted wiely. Senator Slu-s
Is a rising man one who commands influ
ence and respect throughout the State. He
possesses ability and hi had sufficient ex
perience to enable him to accomplish much
more for the district thau a new man could.
The Senatorial, Judicial aud Congressional
districts are all to be reorganized at the ap
proaching session or the Legislature, and
during his term of office a United States
Senator is also to be elected. As is well
known to our readers he was our first and
last choice, so the Stfllic-nt will not par
take ol "crow" with some of Its Sumner
county neighbors who labored zealously
agaiat him and in the Interest of Ejc-Sena-j
tor St. Clair. To election ofSr felu is a
foregone conclusion. Antiety EeptUieam
The Senatorial contest for this disrritt.
and which came off in Xedidne Lodge on
New York, September IT. The follow
ing is an abstract or Senator Conkiing's
speech at the academy to-night. After an
cloquint allusion to the grander and bless
ings of the republican party, Coukling said :
The democratic party is the democratic
candidate, aud I am against the ticket and
all its works. The general issue confront
ing us, in Itself and in Us beariugs, is
sectional. AVould it were not so, but it is
so. Iu 12 states of the Union the approach
ing election is to be no more than a farce,
unless, as has sometimes happened, it turns
into tragedy. In several of the southern
states there is a light republican majority.
But all the southern states, without ex
ception or doubt, arc relied upon to count
for the democracy and to score one bundled
and thirtycight electoral voles. There is no
free debate, no equal rights, no true expres
sions in these states, and yet he wbo discus
ses these questions must be told in coarse
parlance of that day, that he waives the pro
posed count iu some southern states founded
on the lost census. Then read Gen. Grant's
recent letter In which be says that in the
democratic party as now constituted and con
trolled, I sec not a fit pany 1 1 trust with the
control of the general goverumaut, and went
on to say that the south controls the demo
cratic parly, and that iu congress, southern
incmuers neia absolute sway, and sliotilil a
controversy arise aud the presidential elect
ors be thrown into the house, there the vote
being taken by.statc, the south would cast
nearly all the democratic vote, and in the
senate the vote for v:ee p'-csident would
come from the same source. In the event ol
democratic success, the southern end of the
democratic party must be o the northern
end as a locomotive Is to the tender, as a
horse to a cart. This is as pla'n as any
truth in gravitation or arithmetic. The
south has control of all the vvotkiug com
mittees of the senate. In every committee
there is a majority of democrats, and this
maioiily In all eases consist or southern
senators. The same condition prevails in
the house. There are forty-two committee
chairman. Of these, tweuty-lwo are from
the south. AH of the committees arc so
constituted that a majority ale demociats.
and of this majority mole than halfis south
ern. During the two years which this abso
lute power in both house has been o lodg
ed, how many espettcd bill havrenot been
introduced that have beea Introduced and
have not beta pressed. Some that have
been pressed hav c run against such obstinate
opposition as to secure present postpone
ment or some modification, but whenever
)ou put the vtto power in democratic bauds,
put there by southern votes, whatever the
solid caucus desires will bo written. Thqt
caucus will be controlled by those who re
piesent less than one-seventh of the popu
lation and no more than oue-fourtccnth of
the producing cninincicial, industrial, tax-
paying and property interests of the couiitiy.
The senator read official figures ol the
bureau of statistics to prove this xsjcrtion
and said these facts arc not recited with
pleasure but deep regret,
The next point di-cuscd was the trade ol
the 31isissippl river, nnd upon this point
Seuator Conkling said that the river com
merce of the southern 3lis3llppl i regard
ed as a great tie of Interest, a great "-ife-
guard and assurance against mil poses or
sectionalism, anil a large foundation lor
claims set up for southern Influence In
national affairs. This theory Is far from
true. The tread of man In all ages ha been
lines of latitude, not longitude. The rivirs
and mountains on this continent run north
and south, eat and wes The construc
tion ot raitvvavs has rcvoltionizcd traffic and
transportation, ami the great companion
and competitor to this tran-contlnental
movement is the lakes and the Eric canal
The commercial forces or seven great cities
have grasped this vast carrtlng trade and
I bold the propellers direct between Xew
York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore at the
east, and St. Louis, Chicago, and Clncinat!
at the west, and commands the machinery
and the outlets nnd Inlets through which the
produce or the United Sta.es reaches Ihr
markets or the world, and through which
the merchandise ol Europe is brougnt boro
and distributed Could science deepen the
mouth or the Slissippl until Ihe Great East
ern could load at the wli?rf of the Cre-ccnt
City, this achievement would no more arrest
or divert the movement of commerce and the
population of the cast and west, than it
could control the tides of the ea or change
the course of the stirs.

To tie Editor of tie Eaglt:
Br the accidental oml'ultin of a word In
the publication of ray communication which 1
appeared In tlie last Iue of the KtGLE I
was made to mj tbit couti'el arc not tied by
an oath and by ilttle or no principles of
truth. It should have read, they are nottled
by an oath and frequently by little or no
principles of truth. It would be extremely
unuUeand unjust to ear that there-are no
truthful, conscientious pcrwmi amon; the
lepal lights, or to 3y the same, even, of ed
itor. And again there I no doubt bnt rchool dis
trict Xo. 10" 1 one of tbe bent, must proper-,
ly and MiccessJu'ly managed dintrft'U in the
county and in tbe opinloa of superintendent i
Bruce a well aa the patron of the frcho-ol.

wasn't It Jut a little too z a boob to call
it a whole tonnhip?
