' Swans are said to live 300 years, yet the country is full of victims of the boarding house who are ready to declare that swans die young in comparison with some other fowls. The-Tariff and Prices. The free trade theorist is continually asserting that the tariff is a tax not only upon the imports on which it is paid, but also upon like articles of,, domestic production. That is his theory, and with him theory is more sacred than indispvttablc facts. Even when it is pointed out that goods are sometimes sold for prices less than the tariff imposed upon similar goods imported, still the free trader will not recede from the his theory that the tariff has been added to the legitimate oprice. When the McKinley bill Was tinder discussion a favorite theme with the free traders was the higher prices that would follow the passage of such a measure. It was argued that, increased rates meant increased taxation and increased retail prices. That would have been the logical result had not their theory been placed on a false premise to start with. Hut the increase in prices did not follow. On the other hand, there haB been a decrease over the .prices that prevailed before the passage of the law.

W. .IONKS, of Reno county, for congressman from the great ilig Seventh district'? Wc remember his staunch and able advocacy of protection to Amer-1 ican industry, we remember his active aid in times of need to the Republican party, we remember how he crushed the People's party calamity shriekers and we remember his honesty and ability in his every dealing with his fellow man. Sedgwick county's only rudder in this campaign is composed of the principles united under the name of Republicanism, and we think its •repreSeatatives at Kingman can do no better than give Jones, the able exponent of those principles, a good lift.— Colwich Courier. tion on the above articles is from 3 to 12 per cent, since the law went into operation. Here is a list of Farm machinery in whicli the prices have been reduced. Articles on whicli the price remains the same are omitted: Price In Price in lS'JO. 1802. Self Binder $130.00 $120.00 Kourtcen-lnch steel beam. walking plow 14.00 13.00 Riding cultivator 2.">.00 2:1.00 Mowing machine :>0.00 45.00 Strowbrldge Seeder...... 1.1.00 12.00 In the hardware line an extended list might be given on which the price has been materially reduced. For instance, barb wire has descreused 123 per cent, iu price; fence staples 10 per cent., and many other articles in like ratio. These facts bear out the theory of protectionists that the tariff stimulates home manufactures and the competition results in a reductiou of prices to the people. We shall never be able to get up a w ar till we destroy the ocean cables, says the Philadelphia Times., There is not time nowadays to get into a belligerent frame of mind before the cable dispatch comes along to say that there is nothing to fight about. So it was with Chili and so It is with Great Britain. For all that anybody can lenrn there never was any occasion for the recent Hurry, but however that may be, it is ended now. The treaty is ratified, the modus vivendi is to be renewed, and things are going on as before. And the best of it is that everybody is satisfied. We think that Lord SALISBURY has backed down; the English think that President HABIUBOX lias backed down; and both sides are proud of their diplomacy and happy in the result. Peace truly hath its victories much more renowned than war.

J. W. JONES is receiving strong indorsements from the Republican press throughout the Seventh district. These refer to his ability as a debater and hla soundness upon the political and economic questions of the day. Great us may be those qualifications, they by no means represent the sum total of his many good qualities. The NEWS knows Mr. JONKS to have been a most indefatigable worker in the interests of the people and of the state, and that, too, when there was no promise of personal reward above the satisfaction every good citizen must feel in thu prosperity of the state and community in which he lives. He has a great big heart that goes out in sympathy to every man that toils for a living, aud no mun iu Kansas would go farther and do more to assist humanity than ho. lie is too honest to pluy the demagogue and advocate measures his good sense tells him must result iu bitter disappointment in the end. If J. W. Jofiiss is the next congressman from the Seventh district the people Rates of Taxation. EDITOK NEWS : The Missouri legislature has JUBt adjourned after an extra session In which the state tax was reduced to 15 cents on the hundred dollars. In Kansas It remains at 41 cents on the hundred dollars, with no prospect of a reduction. This is entirely too great a difference, for there Is nothing in the circumstances of the people living in the two states to justlly It. for we are quite as poor in Kansas as are the people in Missouri. FINNEY. Garden City, Kan. While the rates of taxntioa are apparently higher in Kansas than in Missouri, the probabilities are that the reverse is actually true. Kansas makes a very bad showing in comparison of rates owing to the fact that property is assessed at not more than one-fourth its true value, and if we pay a nominal rate of four mills on the dollar in reality we pay but one mill on the dollar. The Missouri rate of fifteen cents per hundred dollars is still higher than the actual Kansas rate, which for the year 1802 will be thirty-seven cents on one hundred dollars, the rate fixed by the last legislature being: For current expenses three and five-tenths mills and for the payment of interest two-tenths of one mill. Again, the large exemption of personal property made in the interests of the poorer classes tends to muke the rates on taxable property higher than they otherwise would be. State affairs are conducted more economically in Kansas than in Missouri, and the total of taxes collected in proportion to the wealth of the state is less, no matter, what the figures may seem so show. THE KANSAS l'UKSS. J. li. Winne iB the Republican candidate for mayor of Hutchinson. Mr. Winne is a good business man and will make an excellent executive officer.—Sterling- Champion. The "dark boss" will flgura conspicuously in Kansas politics this year. The "dark boss" is pr/.ibably a necessary evil, but his limited success has a soothing effect upon avowed candi­ dates.—Jetmoro Sunflower. Looking backward less than two short years wo can see the Democratic party denouncing the new tariff law as the most infamous ever enacted, yet now they only want to change it as regards wool and cotton ties, and the right down honest Democrats don't even want that done.—Arlington Enterprise. Andrew Carnegie, himself a man of large fortune. sayB the United States government ought to take mcasuroa to prevent tin. transmission of such fortunes from generation to generation, Mr. Curnegiu is right. Rich men in this country have sUAjvn a disposition of late year's to perp.owate the riches o their fortunes to one son. There is danger in this. Collossal fortunes are always a menace to the people. Motley is a tyrant that too often has no regard for the rights of the moneyless. The government has the right to curtail the power of this tyrant. It might not be wise to limit the amount a man may accumulate during his lifetime by his own exertions, but the government has the right, and it would bo wisdom, to limit the amount he can transmit to any one person. Such a law ought to be passed without delay.—Meade Republican. • Injrcrsolr* .Oration at Whitman's Grave. The following is the beautiful tribute paid by Col. Robert G. Ingersoll to the memory of his old friend, Walt Whitman: ' "Again we iu the mystery of life ure brought face with the mystery of death. A great man, a great Amerl can—the most eminent citizen of this republic—is dead before us. And we I have met to pay a tribute to his great- 1 ness and to his worth. I know that he needs no words of mine. His fame is secure. He laid the foundations of it deep in the human heart. He was, above all .that I have known, the poet of humanity, of sympathy. "Great he was—so great that he rose above the greatest that he met without arrogance; and so great that he stooped to the lowest without conscious condescension. He never claimed to be lower or greater than any other of the sons of men. He came into our generation a free,; untrammelcd spirit, with sympathy for all. His arm was beneath the form of tho sick. He sympathized with the imprisoned and despised; and even on the brow of crime he was great enough to place the kiss of human sympathy. "One of the greatest lines in our literature is his, speaking of an outcast, and the line is great enough to do honor to the greatest genius that has ever lived, lie said: 'Sot until the sun excludes you will I exclude you.' A charity as wide as the sky. And wherever there was human suffering, human misfortune, the sympathy of Whitman bent above it as the firmament bends above the earth. "He was built on a broad and splendid plan—ample, without appearing, to have limitations—passing easily for a brother of mountains and seas and con­ stellations—earing nothing for the little maps and charts that timid pilots hug the shore with and giving himself freely with the recklessness of genius to winds and waves and tides—caring for nothing as long as the stars were above him. And he walked among men, among writers, among verbal varnishers and vencerers, among literary milliners and tailors with the unconscious dignity of an antique god. . "He was the poet, also, of that divine democracy that gives equal rights to all the sons and daughters of men. lie uttered the great American voice, uttered a song worthy of the great republic. He has tittered more supreme words than any writer of our century and possibly of almost any other. "He was above till things u man. Aud above genius, above all the snowcapped peaks of intelligence, above all of art rises the true man—greater than all. He was a true man and he walked among his fellow-men as such. He accepted and absorbed all theories, all creeds, all religions, and believed in none. He had a philosophy and religion of his own, broader—as he believed—and as I believe—than others. He accepted all. He absorbed all. And he was above all. "He was true absolutely to himself. He had frankness, courage, and he was as candid as light. He was willing that all the sons of men should be absolutely acquainted with his heart and brain. "He was not afraid to live; not afraid to speak his thoughts. Neither was he afraid to die. For many years he and death lived near neighbors He was always willing and ready u meet and greet this thing called death. And for many months ho sat in the deepening twilight waiting for the night—waiting for the light. In his brain were the blessed memories of the day, and in his heart were mingled the dawn and dusk of life. He was not afraid—cheerful every moment, the laughing nymphs of day did not desert him. They remained that they might clasp the hand of the veiled and silent sisters of the night when they should come. And when they did come Walt Whitman stretched his hands to both—one on one side, the nymphs of day; and the other, the silent sisters of the night. And so, hand in hand, between smiles and tears, he reached his journey's end. From the frontier of life, from the western wavc-kisscd shore he sent us messages of content and hope. And those messages seem now like strains of music blown by the mystic trumpeter from death's pale realm. • "To-day we give back to mother nature, to her clasp and kiss, one of the bravest, sweetest souls that over lived in human clay. And I thank him for the brave words he had said on the subject of death. Since he has lived death is less fearful than it was before, and thousands and millions will walk down into the dark valley of the shadow holding Walt Whitman by thehand, long after we are dead. The brave words he has spoken will sound like trumpets to the dying. "And so I lay this poor wreath upon this great man's tomb. I love him liv ing and I love him still."
