There is hardly a single Hem of the retrenchment effected thus far by the flvo-eent congress but what will simply be crowded over onto future congresses as deflcienules. The Growth of Republicanism. Now comes little tlreeee wanting to exchange her monarchy for a republic. She wnnts to supplant a rule by divine right for » government by authority of the governed. She wnnts to overthrow tin usurped power and supplant It with the power of the people. The immediate cause of the present signs of unrest is the recent action of the king in enforcing the resignation of almost his entire cabinet, and then when the legislative body placed itself in antagonism to the new ministers summarily dismissing the entire body of legislators and ordering the election of a new set of law makers. The people view these acts as a violation of even the king's authority under a constitutional monarchy, and nre seriously considering thu advisability of making a powerful protest before other constitutional rights of the people have been abridged. The feeling of unrest in Europe is by no means confined to Greece. There is not a monarchy of them all the overthrow of which is beyond the possibilities of the next twelve months. The people are beginning to question by what right kings, emperors and sultans rule. They are asking them selves if their systems ave not inferior to those of France and America. They are wondering if after all they are keeping pace with the nations of the earth that are unrestricted and un restrained by effete forms of govern mcnt. him in any position of Colwich Courier: public trust.— KANSAS NOTES, Harvey.-... _ "ell...

Thomas l'lie Atchison Champion is very much exercised over the reappointment of GKOROK T. ANTHONY as a member of the Kansas board of railroad commissioners. After making a show of itself it says: "It now remains to be seen whether the Republicans of Atchison, Leavenworth and Kansas City, Kansas, will tamely submit to this additional insult, and refrain from treating it and those- who live guilty as they deserve." Having fattened off of central and western Kansas, it sounds very fine, to hear these Missouri river towns talk of unjust freight rates and "insults." If the aforesaid towns want to carry the war into Africa" on this question of freight rates, let them sail in. The people of the western two- thirds of the state will stand together as a man on this issue. Now lay on, Mr. Macduff. , iTrcgo.. Wabaunsee ... Wallace Washington..

B'reo trade England, which would rather become bankrupt than admit her theories are wrong, Is beginning to wince under the opposition of cheap Belgium labor. Lust year 1110,000 tons of structural iron wore imported into Great Britain, chiefly from Belgium. An Knglishiron journal complains that the foreigners have copied English sizes and are taking bread out »f the mouths of English workmen. If English manufacturers with free materials and fuel and cheap labor are being driven out of business by Belgian ri vals, whose labor is still cheaper, what would be the effect of such a policy upon the well-paid mechanics of the United States? English capitalists who buy structural iron may congratulate themselves on being able to buy it abroad cheaper than at home, but the idle iron workers of England fail to sec wherein they are benefitted. . Superintendent of public Instruction, 'Delegates to the convention mentioned above shall be elected' under the same rules and in the same man ner as the delegates to the first conven tlon, and also under the same apportionment, giving the various counties the same number of delegates in each convention.

TAYLOR, editor of the Hedg wiek Puntngraph, whose fairness and honesty is unquestioned by those who know him, recently took a trip througl; the Bouth. In speaking of the Alliance and third party movement he gays: "The Republicans appear to be for HAHRISON to a mnn, while the Alii' unco is not mentioned, but if you speak of the new party, they invariably with a smile, say that party will not curry u single county in the south: that they aro never heard of bnly when they sec something in the papers, taken from some northern or western paper. We hod been led to believe that there were a great many Alliance men in the south but since we have been there, read their leading papers, talked with different people lu various places* we must confess we believe that Kansas contains more Alliance men than the solid south altogether." The earnest support being given to Hon. .1. W. JONES for the nomination for congress at the Kingman convention is very gratifying to his many friends, and it is already practically certain that he will be named as the standard bearer to beat Mr. SIMPSOK. In whatever way Mr. JOXES be studied his value as a candidate is strongly in his favor. Among the letters received at this office endorsing him we note a number who say, "Mr. .IONES is very strong among our farmers becuuBe of the fact that he has done so much to secure proper freight rates on our rail roads for our people." * We may add that no man in the Big Se»enth is better fitted to grapple with the transportation I question than Mr. JoNKS. He. it was who inaugurated the great fight made year or two ago when more than forty thousand farmers in Kansas petitioned for nu "emergency" rate. Mr. J OSES contributed his services without j price, nor did his efforts cease after the winning fight made, but Conceiving that unjust advantage had been taken of the farmers, he again went after them, and backed np by a petition of twenty-eight thousand farmers, made the fight before the State Hallway Commissioners that led to a general | modification ot the rates to the benefit of all Bhippers. He is still following the question up and by his watchfulness is, and has repeatedly prevented discriminating rates against the west. R. G. Dun & Co., oi New York, in their weekly trade review say of wheat: "AB the new crop draws nearer and the prospect is that it will be large, prices tend downward." The little value of this assertion is better understood when it IB remembered that the seed for one-third of the wheat crop of tho United States has not yet been sown, and the balance is barely above ground, in a condition, save in central and western Kansas, below the average. It is entirely too early to intelligently estimate the wheat crop of 18'.I2. From present indigations the yield of wheat in the county will be from 20 to 40 bushels to the acre.—Stanton County Sun. Everything now points to a prosperous season and farmers are making arrangements to put in every foot of land they can handle.—Lane County Herald. A great deal of lumber is being taken out in the country by farmers this spring to improve their farms, which is a very good indication that our farmers ;ire prosperous.—La Crosse Chieftain. The steam plow arrived here. Wednesday and will be put to work in the neighborhood of Terry in a few days. It will plow a furrow about twSlve feet wide at a time. This is a great country for such n machine, for it can plow a hundred miles in a straight line without striking a root stump or stone. —Garden City Herald. The April Forum. Articles of political timeliness in the April Komm are: A discussion of the several phases of "The Crisis of the Democratic party," by the Hon. Win. L. Wilson, of West Virginia, who writes in favor of "n campaign for a principle," viz., tariff reform; by Frederic li. Coudert, the leader of the anti- Hill Democrats in New York, on the revolt against Senator Hill; and by Matthew Hale, a well known constitutional authority, on the theft by the. Democrats of the New York senate. Besides these, is n thorough review of the change in Iowa from a Republican to a Democratic majority. "Is Iowa a Doubtful State?" by Governor John N. Irwin. There are two literary articles of unusual value—one, an autobiographical articles about his own opinions and methods, by the late Prof. Edward A.

Economic and historical articles are on the great coal combination, "Our Anthracite Supply and Distribution," by Josephs.

Wr How Waterloo Was Lost. The enemy had been pounding on onr left—of course it was Bonaparte's loft, but we were pleased to call it onrB —for two hours, and it vm getting tiresome. Tho little corporal had jnst finished breakfast and was picking his teeth in the reading room of the hotel when he noticed the condition of affairs. "Send some artillory over there," ho thundered without a moment's hesitation. Fifteen minutes later an officer with mud in his hair dashed frantically into the presence of the great captain. "Sire," he exclaimed, "the artillery is stack in the mud. ' The emperor bowed politely. "And, sire, it cannot be dislodged unless the teamsteiB are allowed to swear at their horses." His majesty looked interested. "Sire, are they permitted tosoBWear?" Bonaparte shook his head. "No, 1 think not," he quietly observed. "Guess they'd better not It wonld excite unfavorable comment. I'd rather be right than to keep my job, don't you know. Death before dishonor, so to speak." And so Waterloo was lost.—Detroit Tribune.' Loved His Neighbor. Occasionally public speakers will focus their attentions on one individual in the audience on whom, for illustration's sake, their remarks seem to be wholly and specially addressed. . It is safe to say that the good man who figured ns Bpeaker to a western audience in the present, instance was very much surprised nt the literal application of his text. 'You must remember," he said at the conclusion of his sermon, "that the Good Book commands you to love your neighbor ns yourself." At that moment n big lout jumped up in a back seat, and twirling his hat in his hand shouted: "1 do, mister; I love her a heap better than myself, but she's gone an built a nine foot fence betwixt our lots, an she says she 'll set the dogs on me if I climb up or look over" The singing of the doxology drowned further remarks.—Detroit Free Press, Hew Ourtlinal and the New Bishop of Brooklyn. Two important promotions-have just been announced in tho Iloinan. Catholic church in the United Ki ates. Archbishop Ireland is to be made a cardinal, while Mgr. Charles E. McDonnell, private secretary to ATohbishop Corrigan. and chancellor of the New York archdiocese, has been appointed bishop of Brooklyn. Archbishop Ireland's career has been a brilliant one. He was born in Bnrnohurch, Kilkenny county, Ireland, in 1838. In 1848 his parents emigrated and settled in St. Paul. At school young Ireland was noted as a particularly bright boy. Bishop Cretin sent him to Meximeux, France, where he subsequently graduated from the Grand Seminary of Hyeres, und returning to St. Paul in 1861 was ordained a priest in December of that year. Shortly afterward he went south as chaplain of tho CARDINAL IRELAND. urcby. ' He was bom of humble parent* in the Seventh ward of the city ot New York. Ho received his preliminary education in Brooklyn, and afterward, became a student at the De La Salle institute ami St. Francis Xavier'a college, New York. Young McDonnell's wonderful mental attainments enabled him to outer on bis theological studios two years in advance of his classmates. At tho age of eighteen he went to Rome and entered the American college. He was there ordained a priest in 1378, and scon after returned to New York. He was assigned to different churches in that city, and it 1881 became Cardinal McCloskey's private secretary. On the death of that prelate ho filled a similar position for Archbishop Corrigan, and was afterward made chancellor of the archbishopric of Now York. Bishop McDonnell's ordination will occur within a couple of months. Pol^utm About "Olile." "Chic" is said to be the only French word with no equivalent in any other language. Webstnr says it stands for "good form" and "style," but this is not the Parisian sense of the word at all. In Germany it is taken to mean the proper thing in dress. In England and some other countries they use it to 4 i indicate smartness—a certain delicate Fifth Minnesota regiment, but failing } self confidence or swagger. In truth a ' not only to thu nmeud- nsideration, but to the f alleged retrenchment Retribution is sometimes slow, but it generally gets there in time. We are more than ever convinced of this fact by reading in an. eastern paper that' "Genial MIKB NOLAN," the author of! "Annie Rooney," was arrested in Hartford li few days ago. Tim KANSAS I'KKSS. If the Republicans of Kansas work together in harmony through the campaign us they are now doing, they can win even should the Alliance and Dem- oci-ats fuse.—Gurden City Sentinel. Imported cheap labor is less dangerous und injurious to our homo labor than imported cheap labor products, but both rauBt be held in check by governmental protection in the form of Immigration laws, or our labor will be overwhelnmed and degraded.—Hoisington Dispatch. The whole state of Kansas, save the counties of Wyandotte, Leavenworth and Atchison, demanded that George T. Anthony be re-elected to the board of railroad commissioners, and it was done. Now the papers iu these counties are crying about the will of the people being disregarded in _the matter.—Lawrence Journal.

"What the deuce did you sell mo this dog for?" exclaimed an Irate purchaser, coming into a fancier's shop. "1 don't remember," responded the dealer politely, "but I think I sold him for ten dollars." "That's exactly what you did, and you said he was excellent for rats." "Isn't he?" inquired the innocent dealer. "No, he isn't worth n cuss. He lets them get away from him every time," ""Well, isn't that excellent for vats?" And the dealer asked the . question so papal consistory held in Rome, ho was preconized archbishop and his former diocese erected into an archdiocese. His selection as cardinal recently is a fit rounding off of tho brilliant career of a remarkable man. He is a man of broad mind and liberal views, and has been honored frequently outside the church by the people of Muiuesota. Mgr. Charles E. McDonnell's appointment to the bishopric of Brooklyn came as a great surprise, inasmuch as it was not expected that the selection would be made for Borne •weekB yet.
