( Prank Pingree, Ch'n. Commissioners M. W. With am. (E.T.Heming. The delegates from Ellis county are for Turner. Ex-Senator David Davis died at his home last week. The Lake Shore switcnmen at Chicago are out on a strike. Sixteon men were killed by the Ycquai Indians on the 27th, near Con, old Mexico There are over fifty convicts in the penitentiary confined under the sen tence of death. The Kanapolis News is a new candidate for favors, published at Kanapolis, Ellsworth countv. The Fitz-John Porter bill passed the Senate last week bj a vote of 30 to 17, and now awaits the President's signature. The Ludell Settler has ceased to ex ist The Settler was a good paper and we are sorry that Geo. Hand has "been unfortunate. Books and Graham countv dele gates have been instructed for Han back. This starts him into the con vention with about twenty-five dele gates. Thomas county is taking care of two Sherman county criminals at present at a heavy cost. Signs of the times indicate she will be caring for several more soon. The Senate 1ms passed the pre-emption and timber culture act. The bill is different from the bill passed by the house, and the house will have to reconsider befoic it becomes a law. . The Leonard New Tecumseh howls because the township officers of Sher man have not received their election certificates. The certificates have been mailed for about three weeks and the fault is in the mail. The fate of the Ludell Settler will certainly overtake fully one-half of the newspaper enterprises staiting in the new counties. It is simply im possible for three or four -newspapers to survive in any of the new counties. Later reports indicate that Turner and Hnnliack united in Books county to down Heron, and they did the act. We have been laboring under the im pression that Tinner was ifn uncom promising enemy to Hanback, and why he should -unite with "Hanback to defeat a Heron delegation is' not easi ly understood liy his friends. An ex planation is in order. The American fiao- floats over a well of good water twenty-five feet deep, with seven feet of water, -on the south side of the track, in Wallace. The flag is the emblem of free govern ment, and the water is free to all and inexhaustible. Dip it up and drink. Wallace Kegister. After xeading of the .numerous rows in Wallace published in the Begister, one would infer that water is -used for horses only in Wallace. The Atwood Citizen -has a two col umn article .upon the late outrages' in Bawlins county. It seems to take the blame from the parties doing the shooting, and lays it at the doors of three Obeilin .and one Colby paper. The fact stjll exists that two onen wereshotinihe back while planting orn in Bawlins county, ixnd justice lias not been cneted out to the perpe trators of the foul murder, 4ilthough it is claimed tiaat the parties who did -the shooting ass well known. It looks as though Atwood justice favored the Fleming gang, la fact the papers pub lished at that $fcice have taken his -paitfrom the first It is also stated that there are political reasons which causes justice to be so tardy over there. Sparks' Bply Commissioner Spado, in reply to a request from the secretary of the In terior for areconuneodation in the Bat ter of the application of tk state of Kansas for a reconsideration of a pre vious decision of the ulterior depart-J ment upon the claim of tiie state to select additional lands under the, agri cultural college sctjof 1862,. baa recom mended that the application be grant ed. Under ttw.act the state "claims the right to Jelect 7,682 actMoflasd in addition to a like 'number sslsete'd in 1864. alleging that tire lands were wot alegaUy inewaaad ta the donbie Minimum price af htld ia the previous decision. n The congressional Jght in tikis dis trict is more complicate! than "ever. Heron, Turner and Hanback will go into the convention with about the same strength, possibly Hanback a few votes ahead. The opposition to Hanback is uncompromising; settling Hanback's fate unless'itjvere possible for him to climb fhe nnsurmountoble wall-first ballot. "With the combined force of Dixon, McNall and Bracken, added to Hanback's, no nomination could be made, and it is not probable that he is the second choice of either of these delegations. On the contrary it is claimed that Turner will get the McNall delegates eventually, and that Heron will get the Young and Brack en delegates, leaving Dixon's men for Dixon all through. It sizes up be tween Heron and Turner, leaving the Hanback delegates the privilage of naming the man. The figures are all against Hanback. Wendall Items. We are having fine weather and a rain shower about every day. A terrible hail strm visited this vicinity a few nights ago, destroying small grain, gardens, truck-patches, and windows, pretty badly. Farmers are now plowing up their wheat and planting it in coro.,as-the-hail has destroyed most all of the wheat Mr. Thomas Knight and family who have been living in Thomas county, are visiting in Smith county. Also Mr. Louis Wilson who has been a res ident of Thomas county, returned to his home in Nodawaj county, Missouri. The batchelors of this vicinity had better keep their houses locked, for there is danger of losing their trunks. Died.

Let every bod go to our own coun ty seat and help to make interesting, this, her first celebration of the Declara tion o'f Independence of these United States. There will be a celebration at the old Quickville P. 0. July 3rd. We noticed the above in our last number. It was well that B. T.

There is some talk of a school howse being built up near the Quickville P. 0. We hope there will be more done about it than talk, as they need it both for week days and Lords-da.
