U Stevens, 2 Sumner 14 Wichita , !! Crop Repotts. In a recent issue of the Lawrence j World we find the following-, tlie result probably of u temporary mental aberration, from which, no doubt, the usually level-headed editor linn already recovered: 1 One of the things that Is wrong Is the pres. ent system oi crop reporting. Our farmers are protesting earnestly, and rightly, too, against Mr. Mohler makinghls ofllccan Information bureau for grain gamblers. It has been conceded by intelligent people? both nt home and abroad, that the Kansas state board of agriculture bus been a most important factor in the development of our state. Ho patent lias this become to outsiders that many other states have adopted the. same method of disseminating useful knowledge to their citizens and the world at large. Tlie "present system of crop reports" is rightand benclicial, theeditor of the World to the contrary notwithstanding. These reports are made for the Imnefitof the intelligent farmers of the state, and their value is recognized by every man who brings a modicum of intelligence into his agricultural operations. Every farmer is vitally interested in the crop reports of his own state as well as of the world at large; and it is the ability to approximate future prices with a reasonble degree of accuracy that makes a farmer more prosperous than his neghbors who are totally ignorant of crop prospects outside their own school district. Neither is it the fault of Mr. MOIII.FU if the grain speculators make their computations on the strength of his reports. That is the best possible evidence that his reports are reason I ably accurate, and the World's statement that "grain gamblers" make use of his reports is a complete refutation of the World's charge that the reports are "misleading and unreliable." If there is any class of men who watch every condition of crop planting and crop growth it is these "grain gamblers," as the World is pleased to style them. Every little shower is noted, the -effect of every blight taken into consideration, and if possible they would know the exact number of chinch bugs at work on the growing grain. Why? llecause these people, have learned that the great law of supply and demand must inevitably control the prices of grain. Occasionally some country editor or Alliance orator makes the discovery that the Chicago board of trade fixes and controls prices, but no member of that board proceeds upon the hypothesis that such is the case. There may be temporary "corners" of a few days duration in a par tieu 'ar "future," but the great mass of I grain will find its price level just as [ water seeks its level. Tlie operations of speculators are but the waves that rise and fall, like the waves of the ocean, great possibly when viewed alone, but insignificant when compared with the mighty body of legitimate operations that underlie them. For every "bear" there is a "bull." For every many trying to cry down prices there is another man trying to force them up; and both recognize that any ndvantago will be but temporary, and that ultimately supply and demand will adjust prices as no man and no combination of men will be able to do. (live the farmers all the reliable crop reports and grain statistics possible. No class of men are more at the uicvcy of grain speculators than the farmers who are entirely ignorant of the condition of crops, or the extent of the supply. Instead of growling about these reports the farmers should read them and If there be errors in them to take steps to have them rectified. The reports of the state board are given out lor the farmers. They are made up from reports from all over the Ktato made Viy farmers. Errors will naturally croop in. but there is reason | to believe they are comparatively few. Still another point. -The grain speculators arc not dependent on Mr. Moiii .Kit for their reports. Thoy have more agents in this state, poHsibly .than the state board. Their agents are trained men, who watch every condition of the crops. If the state board were iibolidlfcd it would not effect the grain dealers' repdrfa; but it would deprive the farmers of .their best source of reliable information. the promised land, contention over claims, all leading up to bitter disappointment in the realization at last that the land sought is of little value for agricultural purposes, and that its remoteness from markets would still render it undesirable if there were no other objections. Most of the homcseckers who staked out their claims in the now lands opened to settlement to-day had little or no knowledge of the lands <or the conditions of the climate. The fertile valley lands bad all been selected by the Indians, and as a result many a claimant will find himself stranded on a barren Beetion of alkali laud on which the combined products of a century would not equal one good Kansas crop. This condition of affairs would be surprising if it were not so common- having been enacted over and over again. Like the boys in the kuckle- berry patch who kept; seeing finer fruit just a few rods away, these "settlers" who never settle, but are scarcely out of one opening until they are waiting for another, will utimately discover that they have been about as thriftless as the gad-about huckleberry pickers who with empty baskets marvelled nt tlie good luck of the compadion who seleeted the first, though least promising spot he came to and went quietly to work. Moralizing on the weakness of the westerner for these periodical rushes after land, however, will have little effect upon the average "boomer." When the last quarter section of government land is opened to settlement, when all the bars have been let down,, when he is free to go on any claim not alreudy occupied, the "boomer" will bow his head to the inevitable and return to his wife's folks back in the states' to become a renter of a little forty-acre patch, of stumps, limestone or worn out, clay knobs. After traveling over thousands of acres of fine lauds to be had for the taking, they will ultimately die a tenant, cursing the ineflieient government that has always helped the prosperous and oppressed the unfortunate citizen. The Democratic Boss Speaks. The action of the Democrats who met in council in this city last week, at which the congressional committee was requested to call an early convention, has been vetoed by floss Kieu- iitosoN, of the Wichita Beacon, who says: "The. Democrats of the Hig Seventh will be guided in their action largely by what the People's party convention at Wichita, June 15, does in the fusion line. If there is a division of the state offices and an endorsement of the Democratic nominees by the Peoples- party in tlie First and Second districts, Jioimv . SIMPSO.Y , the nominee of the l'eople's party for congress in this district, will be indorsed by the Democratic congressional convention. "If there is no such on the state ticket nnd no indorsement of the Democratic congressmen in the First and Second districts. .1 unity StMrsoK will have a three-cornered tight on his hands lu this district. This goes." Now let the small fry who thought they belonged to the Democratic party and ought to have a voice in its policies subside. The boss lias spoken and his word "goes." FRANK V. CI.AIIKK , a graduate from the Leuvonworth branch of the Keeley Institute, who went on a big drunk at Kansas City last week, has been rescued by his friends, and says he will try the cure again. To a Topeka .lo.imnl reporter yesterday he said: "1 have faith in the Keeley cure and 1 was completely cured in the first place, and only went hack to drink ihrough my own recklessness. In the seven months since 1 first took the cure 1 had opportunities to drink almost every day, but had no desire to touch the stuff. When I reached Kansas city 1 found myself giving way and the company of some old drinking associates soon fixed me: a bottle of whisky was handy, and 1 took a drink. I am confident that if I had kept away from those old associations, 1 would not have fallen. The cure is all right, and 1 am going to take it again, and I am confident I will not fall this time. 1 have had grief enough already, and will keep away from those old associations next time." question did so In such a manner as to j indicate that she actually thought it wrong to go and dine were wine was likely to be served: as though the serving of wine would in any sense affect either her or her husband, unless they should have partaken of the wine against their convictions of right. If either were in the slightest danger of being forced to drink wine it would alter the case. Were he. to provide wine at his own table, being censci- enciously opposed to its use in this way, it would be another thing. But to refuse a courteous invitation because, forsooth, he is not allowed to control the host and other guests, would be to write himself down us a blunderbus and a self-constituted ruler of other men's consciences. Such is the scripture precept and example In tiiis wii'ng, which to my mind renders it not a little strange that such a question as this should be asked. It appears that Paul told Christians to go to feasts given by their heathen neighbors and friends, and not ask any questions for conscience sake, when he and they knew that on these occasions wine was not invariably used. Now please let me say that while I am a Prohibitionist 1 do not think that there is a great deal of the grunt at a knat and swallow a camel business in this prohibition question. There are a great many people,- professed Christian people, loud, long and strong in their denunciations of anything but absolute nnd unqualified "never touch a drop" and who themselves never pay debts, piny cards when they please, go to all the fashionable dances, and do most anything else the whims of society demands; but when it comes to take a little wine for the stomach's sake, a great howl is made. Our Lord went to feasts in publicans' houses as those of Pharisees. Ue dined with Matthew and his friends and went so far as to invite himself to Zacchus' feast. And, we must remember that whatever feeling the Pharisees had towards the publicans, Matthew and Zaccheus were wealthy office holders under the government, and there was wine in these feasts. What Kansan ever doubted that the prohibitory law is a good law and all right. The one only trouble in this whole matter is the non-enforcement of the law. It has never been denied that the law is all right, but it is patent to everybody that it isn't enforced, and just so long as city governments, state officials, and Christian churches get behind the parlor door and wink at the prohibitory law, and the way it is being treated, and thus encourage the other side, when will we have this thing any other way'.' The Republican party of Kansas is responsible for the existence of the prohibitiohjlaw, and fathered this law, and it is within, the power of the party that fathered this law to see. that it is enforced, and there is not a single way out of this, but simply to face the music. The party has no reason to be ashamed of its record on this question, and will see what effect its position towards this question will have on the politics of the party in Kansas this fall, as prohibition and its enforcement will be one of the issues in this fight. .1.
