SIDLING-ER, THE Y DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson A Frank Tree Trader. In difioussing the cotton-ties hill in tho house Inst Friday JOHN .1. HEMI UIM. of .South Carolina^ made an assertion worthy of Uie consideration workingmen who are interested good wa^es. lie says: "The tax of 100 per cent, upon cotton-ties menus n million dollars, nmlif the total annum is collected the result would he tha the southern cotton-growers would be paying more than ?'->(> to each one these eleven thousand inun |given par tinl employment in this country by the cotton-tie industry] over and above the usual wages he would be entitled to in a free and open market." 'flint is a frank statement of the position of every consistent free trader They want the wages of the American laborer reduced to the standard of th "free and open mnrliet." They wan the pay of the Iron-workers of the United States reduced to the same seal •paid the Itclgian iron worker. The want to force the American coal mint to take his wife nod daughter into the coil) pit, as the Belgian miner -does, llobbed of its rhetorical donation tl whole theory of free trade means cheap labor—that and nothing more. What irritates these soft-handed brigadiers from the south who stand up in the halls of congress and attack the McKinlcy law as the fact that the lniv honors and encourages honest toil. The sentiment that prompted a southern congressman before the war to declare that the white laborers of the north were only so many "mudsills," no better than the- black slaves of the south, still prevails with many of the southern [fentry now in the house of congress. It is not the price of cotton tics that hurts Mr. IIUAirnii.t. (for he can buy them cheaper under the McKinlcy law than before its passage) but the fact that the American cotton-tic maker receives till) more wages than his English competitor. 1II:MI'IIII.I. hates the working man (whether he he a white man in the north or a colored man in the south) and seeks to stub him xthrough Democratic free trade measures. order o>4 things." Who has gained the market the. l.'anadiau farmer lias lost'. 1 It IK the fanner of the United States. Tin*. Canadian can look across the bor- J er and see his brother in the United States prospering in a home market, and the natural sequence is that. Canada Is losing her bone and sinew to the United States. ' The Kansas City, Mo., grocers are flooding Kansas with circulars containing gross misstatements about the ef- forti of the Kansas railway commissioners to reduce freights. The pith of the whole business may be stated in few words. The freight rate on sugar from Kan Francisco, through Hutchinson, to Kansas City, is OS cents per hundred; the rate to Hutch inson—2Si> miles shorter haul—is 81.01 per hundred. The rule on sugar from New Orleans to Kansas City, via Arkansas City is ;i0 cents per hundred: the rate to Arluinsas City—'-Ml miles shorter Haul—is 02 cents per hundred. The same inequality of rates on other goods prevails, and the object of the commissioners is to equalize and adjust these unfair and unjust rates, which they have the hearty support of all true Kausans.—Newton Kantian President Kl.lor of Harvard writes to the. Koston .lournal that the United .States government is violating toward the Mormons "one of the most fundamental and precious principles of American liberty." The trouble with EI.IOT is that he. like a great many other college professors, has grown to be a theorist who cannot sec the advantages of clean-cut expediency over vague bobbies. The "fiimhitncntul principle of American liberty" should not be permitted to become a cloak under which every form of licentiousness may be committed. WOMEN AT THE BAR.

Legal circles in Philadelphia are considerably stirred up over a mistake mado with reference to a woman lawyer—Mrs. Corrlo Bnroham Kilgoro—who, an one of the aluumi of the university, received an invitation to attend the annual banquet of the association. She promptly accepted, ami the male lawyers were The secretary or the Chicago board of trade states the visible supply of grain in the United States and Canada last (Saturday was 41.177,01)0 bushels of wheat. 10,1)55,000 bushels of corn, .1,231,000 bushels of oats, 1.-11)5,000 bushels of barley. These figures are larger than the corresponding ones a week ago by Ml,000 in wheat, and smaller by !>.VI,(Mn) in corn. The visible supply of wheat for the corresponding week a year ago decreased HI,000 bushels. The Wichita IJencon devotes considerable space to the cotton-tie "iniquity." and tries to explain to its readers how the McKinle.y law 1ms robbed the cotton growers. Yet it failed to state the facts that under the McKinlcy law we have practically ceased to import cotton' tics, but.'on the other hand, prices have been lower than ever before. The McKinlcy law has benelited a great many people., in spite of their unwarranted opposition to it. There are some twenty-six tin-plate factories now in operation in the United States, with a capacity of 'J,H50.- 000 boxes. Hefnre the passage of the McKinlcy bill there was none. Forty eight thousand workmen have been given employment, ¥10,000,000 per annum kept at home which was formerly sent abroad, and the price of tin has not materially advanced. CARRIE B. ICILGORE. filled with dismay at the prospect of having a woman among them on the festive occasion. Her presence wonld mean to thorn the loss of their post prandial cigars at least, and after the grave deliberation which the subject demanded it was decided to return Jlrg. Kilgore's subscription and lot the dinner be, as heretofore, strictlya "stag" affair. This action naturally elicited some caustic comment on the part of the talented lady most directly affected, aud the case has been argued, pro and con with much vigor. ThiB setback is but one of many similar incidents in the career of Mrs. Kil goro, Probably no person living ever fought so persistently for the honor of admission to the bar. As far buck ns 1873 the struggles of this lady, who was then Carrie Burnham, began. She paid her taxes, which were, of course, accepted, and then offered to vote, but her ballot was rejected. An unsuccessful appeal to the courts followed. .Some time afterward Miss Bunihimi registered with Damon Y. ICilgoru and began the study of the law. ller application for admission to the bar was denied by the board of exani- iTH and their action confirmed by the courts, Six years later she made, sui effort to got into the law department of the University of Pennsylvania, but did not succeed Miss Unrnhaiii's next important act was to inarry Mr. Kilgore, her preceptor, by whom she had two children. Another application to (he university followed and she was admitted, hut her for unless there ie merit in the offering client's canso she will not accept it Mrp. Ahrens is of a particularly charitable naturo, and strange to say sho is in no sense a masonlino woman. The first woman over admitted to the bar in Franco was Mile. Saxmisa Bilcesco, of Bucharest. Mile. Bilcesco is the only child of a wealthy banker, who gavohex an education Bnch as f ow women enjoy. The best private tutors were employed toiustruct her, and so well was their work done that their pupil at tho age of seventeen took tho degree of bachelor of lettei'8 and Bcience in tho College of Bucharest. In compliance with the wishes of her wealthy and indulgent father, who was very proud of hor attainment*), Mile. Bilcesco, accompanied by her mother, left for Paris, aud np- plicd for iwlmissioh to the Ecole du Droit, and in tho examination surpassed the COO male candidates. This magnificent showing swept away the opposition of several members of the faculty who had objected to flying in tho. face of precedent to the extent of permitting one woman to enter the school which had Bcvcral hundred male students. During the six years' course required by tho laws of France, Mile. Bilcesco was absent but one day from her studies. Her devoted mother sat by her side—the chaperon idea being as strong in France today as it over was—and patiently listened during all those years to tho tedious lectures, which were unintelligible to her, but which wore eagerly absorbed by the judicial mind of hoi young daughter. Mile. Bilcesco graduated with high honors, and at once returned to her native city of Bucharest, where she is now winning fame and wealth ns a lawyer. Sho is but twenty- three years of age, and is of a slight, trim ligure. Sho litis a high, intellectual forehead, from which masses of dark wavy hair aro carelessly brushed back. She has the pride of appearance com- noon to nil well regulated females, and BUSINESS BUSINESS HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY to this class, leadership.

Canada and Annexation. V. 1/. TniiiANDAN, an ex-membor of the Canadian parliament, was interviewed while in Chicago the other day, in reference to Cauudiuu annexation to tho United States. He said: "Canada's annexation to the United States is inevitable. The word Canada does not alone mean a certain part of the North American continent: it means, In addition, a certain portion of the North American people. Now the only question is shall Canada submit to annexation while the Canadian people stiil exi»t, or shall she wait until all these people have moved over to the United States and then submit to the empty formality of allowing her depopulated country to be annexed?" Mr. TiilUAHDAK also called attention to the fact that efforts arc made to conceal the truth regarding the alarming' character and size of the exodus to the United States. Violent abuse is heaped upon all persons who even refer to the true condition of affairs. The newspapers that have hinted at it, have been promptly denounced as unpatriotic. But Canadians cannot ignore the condition that confronts them. They may sneer at the idea of annexation, but all the while their people are coming into the United States by train loads, and annexing themselves as individuals if not as a nation. Theso Immigrants are mostly farmers. This fact naturally leads to the question why Canadian farmers should come to the United States, If the farming classes here are in such a bad way'. 1 Why should they seek our borders, if it be true that our farmers are oppressed by an iuiquitons tariff law. Hear Mr. THIUANDAN'S views on the matter. He says theso farmers "desert. Canada because they are being taxed out of existence. The McKinlcy bill has limited our market, and the. farm crB are not yet aoeuBtomed to the new The Atlantic steam -ship companies have been compelled to carry so many pauper emigrants back to European! countries that that particular branch of the passenger traffic lias ceased to be profitable. They have, in consequence, raised the rates on steerage passage. In announcing on the eve of an election that he is a radical free trader •IKIIIIY SIMI'SON is evidently laboring under the impression that the voters of the Seventh district are crazier than they wore two years ago.—Lawrence Journal. The report of the chancellor of the exchequer of Great Britain shows that the consumption of spirits in England increased0 )ij per cent, last year. In Scotland the increase was 1 3-5 per cent., and in Ireland 1 percent. Mr. OOSOIIKN, chancellor of the exchequer, argues that the working F.ng- lish workingmen are prosperous because the revenue collected from tea lu Great Britain last year was S170.000 over the estimate.

Several courts refused to permit her to practico before them, and would not even hear her in her own behalf, so that she was obliged to impress tier husband into service to argue her cases. Aftoi two or three bills providing for extending to women the privilege of practicing in the Pennsylvania courtw had failed in tho legislature from one cause or another, one finally got through after B three years' struggle, and then Mrs. Kilgore became a full fledged attorney at law, and was admitted to practice in the supremo court of the state, which of course carried with it a similar right in all lower courts, Since then Mrs. Kilgore's career has boon a brilliant as well as a profitable and pleasant one. She has acquired a largo practico of her own, which has been augmented by much of that of hei husband, who died some time ago. She has on many occasions been appointed by the District of Columbia a commissioner to take testimony, and is now also a practitioner in the supreme court of United States. Auother v bright woman lawyer is Mrs, Mary A. Ahrens, of Chicago, the petite chairman of the Woman's School Suffrage association, of Cook county. Mrs. Ahrens is not alone a lawyor, although that is at present her profession. She has also practiced medicine, and has been a teacher, a lecturer, an artist and on amateur floriculturist and horticulturist at different periods of her half century of life, in 1857 Bhe loft the 1 Gulesburg (Ills.) seminary and married a farmer named Fellows. They had three children. Afterward the family moved to southern Illinois, and while on a sketching tour thiB bright little woman fell on tho rocks aud badly injured her left arm, permanently impairing its use. She moved to Chicago, and Mr. Fellows having died, she was married to the artist Louis Ahrens in 1883. In 1SST Mrs. Ahrens decided to take up tho Btudy of law. Sho enjoys the unique distinction of never having lost u case in court, and the reason iB not hard to find, Silts. MARY A. AUIIKN8. she is said to be a dutiful aud exception ully affectionate daughter, possessing none of thu eccentricities supposed to he peculiar to falcated women. Mile. Bilcesco enjoyed the rather unusual distinction last year of having her admission to tho bar discussed with, much intt-rest.in tho daily press of Paris, and, in lesser degree, by most of the newspapers of Europe. She certainly starts out well advertised. "Listen to Sarah; she knows," was the admiring comment to which Michael Wilkius was wont to give vent when ever his wife, Sarah, was "argifying" with any of the men neighbors. Sarah Wilkius is not a lawyer, but she is nevertheless celebrated as tho only woman" who ever made an argument before the supreme court of Kansas. She also enjoys considerable local fame as the old! dest white settler of Atchison county.' Besides all this she is known as one ol tho shrewdest business women in the statu of Kansas, where she owns several farms. Mrs. Wilkins lias always been a particularly assertive woman She selected her husband from several suitors because she thought he would obey better than tho othors, and she was not mistaken When the "Pollywog" road was built through Mrs. Wilkins' farm the amount paid did not suit her and she brought an action for damages. When thu case wejit up to tho supremo court in 'f opeka the old lady was dissatisfied with her attorney's presentation pf the matter, and she got up, to the great snrprise of the Prof. Will Davis, leaclicr of Piano, Organ and Comet Desires to form a class in the use of either' or all the above instruments.

Mrs. Wilkins is sixty years of ago and is reputed to be very wealthy, although those best informed think that she is worth only about $40,000. Most of her money she has made by lending at enormous rates of interest.' Mrs. Wilkins iB not in tho most distant sense con von tituial.
