SIDLINGER, THE Y DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 17 Xorth Main Street, Hutchinson. The Congressional (Situation. One of the most important olllcos to the voters of the big Seventh is tlmt of congressman. Tlie very Ticst interests of all our people demand Unit our next congressman be an unti-calamlty how- Icr, for this will restore the confidence BO much needed to bring to our debtor class cheap money and start anew immigration. As important UB the element of harmony is to this end, if the ltepublicans are to name the successful candidate, we have noted for some days, that at leaHt one aspirant for the Republican nomination is seeking to secure it by reading- out of the party men lilce Col. H,u,- . I.OWKI.1., whose past lias always been noted for the enthusiastic support {riven when the party called to duty. The statement is made that Col. HAI,- I.owr.i.i. and his friends are for this candidate or against that one, and that they will try to dictate the nomination to be made atlvingmun. Such charges can have bat one tendency, to alienate Col. HAI.I.OWKI.I/K influence from the person making such a canvass. And to assume that this influence is without weight is to overlook the fact that Col. IIAIXOWIUJ, ran four thousand ahead of his ticket in the last campaign Reno county presents to the Republicans of the Big Seventh the n«ne of Uon. J. \V. .IONKS as u candidate for congress. He does not do so, because he has any strings tied to him, nor because he is opposed or favored by un3' man or set of men. but because he. is pre-eminently fitted to serve the whole people if elected to congress. We are in the race soliciting the good inllu ence In his behalf of every Republican in the district. This includes Col. HAIJ-OWKLI. and all his Mends. It includes every one who loves the principles of the party more limn lie loves any individual in it. Is it safe to nominate one on any gauge less broad than this? We want the hearty support of every county In the district—can w_ expect it if we start out rasping Col. . HALUIWEW, or his friends? The Hon. J. W. JONKS is entitled to support, because of his ability to handle the questions at issue, because of his clean record and big-hearted loyalty to Kansas and all her supporters, ant from ports' of shipment as to involve high rates ot transportation. The United States consumed in tHi'J 1,88r>,W)4 Ions of sugar, or :i(J.'l,:.'u:i more than in the previous year. Of this amount only some 250,00(1 tons were of domestic growth. The results of experiments, however, would seem to indicate that under the stimulus of the county now paid by our government, the production of sugar in the United Slates must rapidly increase. The adaptability of largo sections of this country to the cultivation of beets, the^ favorite sugar producer at the present time, leads to that conclusion. Home experiments recently made iu Me- braBka show an average yield of over twenty tons of beets per acre, with a saccharine content of about 13,5 per cent. The sugar beet area iR mainly confined to the northern part of the country, the prairies of Kansas and Nebraska, and the elevated plateaus of Utah and Colorado, the coast valleys of California, and the states of Oregon and Washington, licets of exceptional richness hnve been grown further south, especially in the Shenandoah valley. Three large beet- sugar factories arc in operation in California: there are two in Nebraska and one in Utah, and companies have been organized in several other western states. According to the investigations made the sugar beet proves to be a very lucrative crop. The yield is from fifteen to thirty tons per acre, worth five dollars per ton. The cost of raising, including delivery at the factory, is said to not exceed forty dol- lurs per acre, thus leaving the furtner a neat sum for the use of his lnnd. Again, it is said the crop does not impoverish the soil when alternated with other crops, like wheat. Another feature in this connection, not mentioned by the writers in the Agriculturalist, so far as we have noticed, but quite important, nevertheless, is the improvements that have been and are being made in the mat ter of saccharine producing roots. Experiments in this line at the Kansas Agricultural college have been most promising in the way of results. Through scientific methods of selection the amount of sugar contained in the beets has been increased in some instances, fully SB percent. There is every reason to believe that within the next few years, the United States can be practically independent of all countries so far as her sugar supply is concerned. The American Hanker exposes a lit tie swindling scheme that has been practiced upon some of the country store-keepers in the interior towns of West Virginia. A well-dressed man puts in an appearance and informs the proprietor that he is searching for rare coins, giving it list of specimens and their alleged valve. He asks the store- keebcr to keep a sharp lookout and in ease he gets any of the coins mentioned in lhc]nlleged list, to keep them until he returns, which he says will be in a short time. Soon another stranger casually drops in and buys some little articles, and, in making- change, exhibits several coins which, he says, are pocket pieces. The proprietor consults his list, and finds the value of the alleged pocket pieces put down at forty or fifty dollars each. Anxious to make a good thing, the store-keeper nearly always pays a good price for the pieces. He then waits for the man who made the tempting offers, but he never turns up. announced that he, does not want to be the People's party candidate for the presidency. He thinks WBAVKII, who has been pommeled in every election since 1876, is sufficiently case-hardened by this time ; to stand the strain of such an undertaking. The Kir VAX WINKI.H of the Third congressional district came out of his shell the other day to introduce a free, coinage of silver amendment to the free cotton ties bill. The amendment was properly decided out of order, and Cr.ovKK returned to his hibernation. The Salina Republican seems to think its especial mission just now is to advise the Republicans of the Seventh district as to whom they shall nominate for congress. The woman who is constantly gadding generally leaves a dirty kitchen at home. The Roston Herald indulges in the characteristic reflection that the result in Rhode Island would have been even worse if Mr. CLEVKI.ANH had not gone to the relief of the Democrats. The Sugar Beet Industry. Th« American Agriculturalist haB been making aa exhaustive investigation of the sugar industry of the world and the possibilities of the future so far us the United States is concerned. This investigation IIIIB been intrusted to experts in this special line, hence . their figures are interesting, and their conclusions must have considerable weight. It appears that for the year ending July 1, 1890, the total production of sugar in the world was ll,r>5«,000,000 pounds. Of this aggregate the European beet contributed 7,100,000,000 leaving 4,450,000,000 to be credited to the tropical cane. Of cane sugar, 1,340,000,000 pounds came from the Spanish West Indies; from the other West Indian islands aud Ouiua came 780,000,000; from Uriizil and 1'oru, 300,000,000; from Louisiana, 250,000,000; from Hawaii, 210,000,000, while 1,480,000,000 came from the East Indies and Africa. It is well known that the West Indies are the chief purveyors of the American market, and that the bulk of their product cannot be sold elsewhere, the beet sugar having supplanted it among European consumers. Of the sugar imported into the United States in 1800, some 43 per cent, came from Cuba aud Porto Rico, 13 from the British West Indies, 4 from Brazil and other countries on the American continent, 11 from Hawaii and 11 from the East Indies; the. remaining 18 pev cent, is referable to importations of beet sugar from Europe. The eauc industry is, it seems, declining everywhere outside of the West Indies under the pressure of low prices; and even the West Indian planters have been forced to reduce greatly the cost of manufacture, to introduce improved mnehanieul processes, and to abandon estates no dist What is a "rustler?" and what is the occasion for a conflict between the stockmen of Wyoming and the "rustlers?" From c the Denver Republican we learn that for several years a band of stock thieves, called "rustlers" for short, has been operating in the northern part of Wyoming, stealing cattle and horses, and thus causing heavy loss to the stock-growers. The cattle and horse men of both Wyoming and Montana have suffered, and it has been impossible to obtain redress in the courts. The people of the vicinity of these depredations have been so intimidated that they have not dared as witnesses to testify against the thieves, nor as jurors to convict them. This has caused the stock-growers to organize this expedition, which promises to be a bloody one if it has not already proved so. A Card Prom Col. •lallowoll. EDITOH NKWB: I am creditably informed that certain over-zealous individuals in behalf of their candidacy for Congress in this district, have been simulating the report that I am attempting to dictate the nomination for congress. Permit me to say through your paper, to the Republicans of the district, that this is totally false, and it is just as silly twaddle as other matters that have been talked by these same loquacious individuals. I have no interest in this matter other than as an humble member of the Republican party. The only object I could have to serve in the nomination of any individual would be the success of the party and its principles. To this end I am willing to work with all true Republicans, and to support any man who promises success. I have believed that we could carry the district, with absolute harmony in the ranks of our party so that all . would work, and I see no reason to change that opinion now. I am. very truly, .1. R. HALLOWEM,. Wichita, Kan., April 11. lsyj. • The Herman Kmncror 'K Hack-down. From the Chicago Trlhune. Recent dispatches from tl.ermany confirm the report that tile government lias refrained from further consideration of the Primary Education bill because of serious and uureconcil- uble differences and the impossibility of securing any satisfactory present result. In making this announcement Count von Enlenberg, the newly appointed president of the Prussian council, declared the government would reserve the right to call up the -bilj^iu future without overstepping the liijiit of the constitution. There is no prospect, however, that a favorable time will come for the government to take this step. It is more likely that the German Kaiser has recognized the impossibility of forcing- his Catholic and Lutheran clerical dogmatic bill upon the tierman people and has bowed to the inevitable by a permanent withdrawal of it. He must have found that both the Lutheran and Catholic laity had no desire for its passage and that its chief supporters were clerics who sought to control the education ef the youth of Germany independent of the wishes of their parents and contrary to the will of millions more of the German people. Prom this point of view he must have decided that it would be unsafe to try the patience and self-respect of his subjects too far. If such a bill could have been passed and put into successful operation, which assumes the German people would be too spiritless to oppose it, the next generation would have been reduced to a dull, dead, dogmatic level, with no personal Interest in religion or religious doctrines. The freedom both of teacher and scholar would have been lost, and formalism would take its place. A writer in the Popular Science Monthly, discussing this question, thinks that the only result of the emperor's scheme, if it could be realized, would be "to fill the German fatherland with intellectual stagnation, formalism and hypocrisy," aud he adds by way of application to this country: Such, too, would bej the effect here if the faint-hearts of the The Republican victory in Rhode Island was so sweeping that little interest will attach to the elections yet to take place in districts where the high, est candidates failed of a majority ou Wednesday. It has frequently been the cuse that the complexion of the legislature was determined by the re- Bult of these by-elections. But this year the Republicans already have a majority in each' house and a largo majority on joint ballot; hence the Democrats have no reason for contesting the second elections, which will attract 'little attention. Everything worth settling was settled in good shape ou Weduesduy.—Now York Tribune. The success of PADEKKWSKI in America has been too much for RUBINSTEIN, and he bus announced his intention of re-visiting the United States, just to show the people over here what genuine piano playing is. Seuutor PISI'FKB is allowing unmistakable signs of returning sanity. He ha world could have their way. They would intrust the inculcation of religious' truths to uthe public school teachers and would place religion on a par with geography, with this difference in favor of geography, that it could prove all its statements by irrefragable evidence, while religion, though taught with au equal air of authority, could not in any similar manner prove its statements. Truly, the friends of a cause are often its greatest enemies, while those who get the credit of being its enemies are often its truest friends. There is no danger that the Americans will ever consent to hand over religious teaching to the public schools, and the course of events in Germany shows that that the danger does not exist there. It is more likely if the bill had been passed and had become a law, the result, instead of filling Germany with intellectual stagnation and hypocrisy, would have been to fill it with fierce excitement and revolutionary ferver, with the determination to repeal and nullify the odious and tyrannical law, and perhaps to ups'et the emperor from his throne if lie mudc serious resistance to the popular will. The Germans, from Luther's time to the present,have been stubborn iu opposing any invasion of their religious ideas and rights, and it probably was the emperor's knowledge of this peculiarity ol the German character that caused him to back down and withdraw his priestly bill. ________ KuntfUM III* 81)0 let. I'Yom the Junction City Union. The uetunl condition oZ the state of Kansas, observes the Wichita Higgle, is loss understood than that of any west- em state. Agricultural reports and crop overages seem to out but little figure. Tlie average eastern man will argue and harp upon Kansas as a grasshopper ridden state, when, as a matter of fact, that pest has visited the state but once, and that more than twenty years ago. During the past fifteen years, or since Kansas has taken any rank as an agricultural state, her crops have suffered less from insects and climate causes than the most favored of the central agricultural states. The farmers of southern Illinois have repeatedly losttheir crops, and accounts of their sufferings anil privations have been published to the world. And yet, the grand state lost none of her reputation; but let there be a drouth or a connty seat light os the extreme western border of Kansas and the whole Btatc is condemned. Farm lands, so we are told, have in the paBt ten years advanced from ten to twenty-five dollars an acre in Illinois. W hat has caused this wonderful advance? We. answer, two or three good crops and fair prices. They have advanced before, and again receded, and they will go back again whsn they reach a price so high that they can not pay a fair interest upon their valuation. The lands of central Kansas are just as rich in soil and capable of a far greater variety of crops, and yet they nre selling at scarcely one-fourth the price. It cannot be said that distance from market is responsible for this difference, as many of our products bring as much at home as theirs do. To our mind it is largely a case of reputation; for if the actual facts were known about Kansas 100,000 farmers would come to the state this year. The prudent, careful fanner who is selling his farm to-day in Illinois has been nearly a life time in bringing his land up to its present value, while five to ten years in Kansas will produce as great results. As much\of the failure in crops in Kansas is -due to failure in farming as to unseasonable weather. The. thrifty, careful, good farmer in Kansas has no kick to make. If he has had experience in other states Kansas loses nothing by the comparison. If a careful, truthful statement of the actual condition of Kansas to-day could be placed in the hands of the people of the United States and they made to understand that they were facts, the state would be taken! in the next five years. American Made Bteel Armor. J-'rom the New York Herald. The United States coast defence ship Monterey had bolted to her side yesterday the first plate of American made nickel steel armor over used ou a mil n-of-war. The whole amount of armor needed for this vessel is now on its way across the continent, ami it will not be long before she will be in fighting trim. This indicates much more than the completion of one ship; it marks the beginning of our independence of other nations iu armored shipbuilding. It is an occasion when congratulations may properly be tendered to the manufacturers who have, developed the steel armor industry, to Secretaries Whitney and Tracy, who have fostered it, and to tiie people of the people of 'this country, who will profit by it. Umv iu linn lor oniie. From the Washington I'nst. Congressman John Allen told a good story at Chamberlain's last night. Referring to election days down iu Mississippi Mr. Allen told of an electioneer who grandiloquently referred to the old saying, "The office should seek the man, not the man the office." A few days afterward the speaker was noticed electioneering in old-fashioned style with drinks, cigars, etc. Being called dowii and asked about his assertion a few days before that "the office should seek the man," he replied: "I still maintain my position. The office should indeed seek the man, but, by , sah! the man should be round when tlie office is looking for him." Needed I 'ravlnif For. From the Kansas City Journal. Flossie 's mother is an excellent Republican woman, while her father is a pronounced Democrat, and tells it nearly as often as Hill does. The other evening Flossie finished her prayer with "unci, oh, Lordie, dear, do save papa. Amen." , "Why, Flossie," exclaimed ' her mother, "what do you mean by saying that? Don't you want anybody else saved but papa?" "Of course, I do, mamma," she replied, very seriously, "and you and I me's all right; but papa is a Democrat, religious | and it takes a little extra pray in' to get him through, and we ain't about it even then, mamma,' BUSINESS BUSINESS HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY Our Our FOOD FOR THOUGHT.
