Itopublleau CoiigreHMioiiitl Convention. A delegate ei of the Seventh congressional dlst Kansas and the World's Fair. The time Is at hand when Ihe people of the Htntc of Kansas must decide whether or uot they will be represented ot the world's fair by a crcdit- nble display of the state's products and resourced. If they desire such an exhibit they come to the front with a guarantee the funds that will bo necessary to construct a building uud meet other essential outlays of money. Of course the, state legislature should have. made, appropriation for this purpose. It was a stupendous blunder not to do so. Hut that is all in the past. The appropriation was \H >1 made, mm no amount of criticism of the notion of the legislature will remedy the neglect, anil now we must do the next best tiling. The expense of the ICniibiis exhibit must be borne, by the people, and probably the best way to raise the money necessary is by donations. In order to make it creditable display somewhere iu keeping with the natural demands of this great aud growing commonwealth,it was deemed necessary to raise 8100,000, At least ff:i (),0U0 of this amount must be paid to the treasurer of the Kansas Columbian exhibit, SAM T. IIOWK , of Topeka, on or before May 1, lSSlil. Now we have cached the. point where action must take theplaoeof enthusiasm. We must eotnu down with the mouey, or step down and out, leaving the Sunflower state without representation at the greatest exposition in the world's history, missiug a magnificent opporlu- j nity to show to the world something of our resources, and destroying at one blow the deserved reputation of our, people for energy and pluck. A systematic plan has been suggested and generally accepted for raising the requisite ¥100,(10(1. An allotment has been made to each county, based on county valuations. Hy this plan the burden will be equitably distributed over the state, each county paying according to its ability. The amount set down for Kcnoeoituty is $1,5111. This is not much for a large, rich oouuty like Heno to pay. It should be made up with the least difUeulty by popular subscriptions. The state board of managers suggest that all counties that have not already done so should hasten to form Columbian associations for the purpose of collecting this money and for the purpose of producing and collecting the exhibit. A majority of the counties have so organized and paid in a portion of their money. What* will Ueno county do in the matter? This is the time for action. shall be enforced, the jobber who ships a carload of sugar from the Missouri river to Wichita will have to pay but 15 cents per hundred, while the retail dealer atan c<jual distance who wishes to.ship but halfacar- loadofsugar musthay-tl i:cnts per hundred. —Kansas city Cazette. Why don't you put the ease honestly and fairly before the people? It means that the interior jobbers of Kansas who ship a car load of sugar from New Orleans will pay 4f> cents per hundred, while the Missouri river jobber shipping from the same point will pay but SO cents. Even with the reduced rate the interior jobber must pay ti higher proportionate rate than his Missouri river competitor. The idea of the board of commissioners is uot to make a jobbers' rate from Kansas City (for our jobbers do not buy their goods there), but to equalize a through rate by refusing i to allow the railroads to levy discriminating robber rates on the Kansas end of that haul. How would it do for the. Missouri river papers, that have suddenly developed so much regard for the retail crs of interior Kansas, to expend a little of their zeal in the interest of their home retailers. Why don't they go before the Interstate commissioners and demand the same rate on a half ear load lots of sugar from New Orleans that is given on ear load lots? Why don't the St. Joseph and Kansas City papers demand a local rate from St. l/ouls "commensurate" with the through rate? The species of demagogy of which these Missouri river papers are guilty is entirely too thin to deceive the people of central and western Kansas. Hon. .1.

Total.:, '.,.104 It is recommeuded that the several couiv ties In said congressional district select their The Pay of County Commissioners. There is one class of ofllcers in Kan. sas whose pay is not adequate to the work performed. We refer to the county commissioners. They are called upon to serve their respective eountljs find the service involves much time, work, worry and grave responsibility. The commissioners, who are usually farmers, are frequently called from their farms ni very important seasons; and compelled to nogleet their personal interests to work for the interests of all the people, uud the pay they receive for such service is usually so small that it is unworthy to be called a compensation. We have in tniud u big, prosperous oounty the board of commissioners of which receive the sura of SHI I per year. One of the members of that board has kept an accurate i count of his legitimate expenses while staying at the eouu ty-seat attending to the business of his office, and finds they "KB rc 6* Il t p upwards of 850, leaving him $H4 to pay for his time, his absence from his furm und the responsibility that rests upon him. Positions involv iug the expenditure of thousands of dollars ti year should be tilled men worth more than 8141 a year, and asking a man to work for such a salary is almost tantamount to bidding him get what he can "on the side." The great majority of Kansas county commissioners are strictly honest, but it is not a result of the treatment they receive iu the way of salaries. The NKWB would like to see a reform in this, matter. The office is an important one, requiring honesty aud business sagacity; and it Is simply outrageous that the salary should b© so insignificant. The pay should be made more commensurate with the work and responsibility. The name of Hon. C. M. AVir.uAJis, of this city, is being favorably mentioned in connection with the People's party nomination for governor. Since ST. JOHN returned to Kansas there have been numerous reports of showers of mud in the state. St. .John Meeting*, liev. ('. II. St. John was taken sick yesterday and unable to til! his appointment:!, and Mrs. St. John led the afternoon meeting. -JL was tin instructive Uible reading and talk along the Hue of helps to overcome the petty an- noyanees and trial« of daily life. It was a very helpful discourse. In the evening a large number of comrades assembled, and the house was v.yil. filled. .Air. St. John was still too ill'to come out and give the expected to his soldier comrades. The quartet choir of the A. M. E. church, rendered some selections in a very effective manner, and Ttev. ,1. W. Sommerville made an opening address to the soldiers, full of patriotic sentiments. Mrs. St. John followed, and as she claimed to be the wife of a soldier, the sister of a soldier, the daughter aud grand-daughter of a soldier, and as she with her own hands drove the team which reaped the grain, then stacked thirty acres of it herself, while father and brother were lighting for their country, she too could lay claim to being a comrade, and could sympathize with the American soldieT. Her talk was along the line of the danger which threatens our republic now. Her discourse .was full of vigorous and eloquent passages and was listened to with rapt attention. At its close a large number signed the liquor and tobacco pledges. This afternoon she talks upon the line of W. C. T. U. and missionary work, and this evening will close the series of lecture to be given here. As this is the Inst time that an opportunity will be given for hearing this remarkable women it is expected that the lieuse will be crowded. MEMPHIS TO CELEBTATt. in Memphis. The two events will be merged into one on the 12th. Something of the programme will be mentioned. The orator of the day has been chosen in the person of Senator Voor- hecB. At 11 o'clock on the morning of May 12th the governors of Missouri, Tennessee. Arkansas, Alabama, and Mississippi. and the president of the taxing district will conduct the ceremonies of dedication. At 3 in the afternoon Senator will deliver the oration in the opra house. A grand banquet will be given at the l.nyoBO hotel in the evening. Senator Harris will, be the toast master. Responses will be made by Senators Butler, Cullora, Allison, Vest, Gordon and Prye and by Speaker Crisp and .Representatives Storer orf Ohio, Burrows of Michigan, Henderson of Illinois, Fellows of New York, Private John Allen of Mississippi and Williams of Massachusetts. These gentlemen have been seen and have' positively accepted the invitation to bo present. Arrangements will probably be made to take a train load of distinguished men add correspondents from Washington. FreBident Harrison, Secretary Mane and several other dignitaries of the first water will be invited. ~WIII DIsoiwyT From the Wichita Beacon. A special dispatch from .Atchison to the Republic says that "the Rock Island Railroad company tiled an answer in the snits brought by the Smyns Grocer company of Atchison to oujoin the state board of railroad commissioners and the Rock Island anil several other roads from putting into effect the recent rate order of the commission in regard to fifth-class freight. The railroad company in its answer, practically indorsed all the allegations i made by the plaintiff, except wherein j it is stated that the Rock iBland I is about to put the order into effect. This is denied, and the company asks to be excused from paying' any costs, The company says in its answer that compliance with the orders of the com missioners would constitute an unjust tcjid unreasonable discrimination against Smyns and Kansas people generally, with the exception of the jobbers in Wichita, Hutchinson, Arkansas City and Salina. The rates ordered are unreasonably low, and if all other rates are reduced in proportion, no railroad could earn reasonable operating expenses." It was supposed when the Smyns suit was instituted that it would furnish a' reasonable excuse for the roads complying with the order of the railroad eommi&siouers and that the courts would refuse to grant the injunction. It w-ns understood that the vnilroads were willing to comply with the law if they could avoid a fight with the. .Missouri river towns. This answer of the Uoek Island, however, puts the question in a new light aud that road has declared it never intended to comply with the order of the Kaus'.Ls commissioners. This amounts to tin open declaration by this railroad that it intends to rob Kansas in a manner to suit itself. What do the people of this state piU- pose to do about if.' If they ore more limn a match for the railroads they will elect a governor and legislature I next fall that will show the people have some rights, which even the railroads are bound to respect.

C, April 4.—Mr. W, Connolly of the Memphis Legder, and Mr. G. C. Matthews editor of tho Memphis Appeal-Avalanche, havo been in the, city since last Tuesday making arrangements for tho big bridge celebration that is to take place at Memphis on May ilith next. They havo been very successful. Together with Senator Harris, of Tennessee, they called at army aud navy headquarters to-day and at the White House. The president j was closeted with two of the cabinet officers and could not be seen. At the j navy department' they met with a hearty reception. The result of thoir visit here involves a somewhat novel uudertakiug. The chief officers, after listening to the explanation of the bridge dedication, fell readily in with tho suggestion of making a naval display at Memphis so far as the stage of the Mississippi will permit. Just what propoilions this display will assume was not settled. The department is willing to make it however, aud will attempt to Send up a llotilla of gunboats, torpedo boats and other crafts likely to be successful in navigating the Mississippi. Tho war de-' purtment also consented to make u display. From all accounts the dedication of the bridge will be one of the greatest events that has taken place in the south since the war.
