A business man's ohjeetion to postage stamps UK fractional eurreuey is that they accumulate too fust anil •tick together too fast. Winter has vacated his seat in the lap of spring. This is oilicial and can be relied upon, HICKS, FOSTKH , Willows et ul., to the contrary notwithstanding. No doubt e.\-liovernor GRAY feels quite grateful to • the Indiana Democrats for their second choice endorsement of himself for the presidential nomination. Now that Huron KAVA is likely to return to this country the illustrated papers are trying to call in all extra copies of editions published about the lime of his retiull. The Philadelphia Times observes that a new part of speech has been added to the original nine recognized by grammatical law. The tenth is found in the Congressional Record and consists of copious extracts from the works of IIKNIIV OKOIIOE , Introduced by JKIUIY SIMPSON. Mifls KITTIK WruiiNs, of Idaho, is pretty and choice enough to be a drawing room belle, but she prefers beluga horse denier and to occupy her time in the control of luvge stables anil extensive sales of trotting stock, and those who deal with her say she knows all the tricks of the trade anil will neither cheat nor he cheated. The copyright on "The Scarlet Letter," by II AWTIIOHNI -:, will expire this year and publishers are. arranging to put it on the market in twenty-cent editions. The copyright on "Uncle Tom's Cabin" has also expired, and this accounts for the large stock of those hooks now to bo found on the (shelves of all hook dealers, at very low prices. Affairs in reference to the llepubli- cun congressional nomination in this district are shaping themselves quite satisfactorily to the friends of J. W. Jo.Niis. The Republicans throughout the district recognize the fact that the best man should be pat forward in the coining race, and those who are acquainted with Mr. .loxi;s feel quite certain he is the man. Commenting on the action of the Sal'inn convention in adopting n platform declaring for the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold and then proceeding to instruct the Kun- sas delegation to vote for UnovKU CI.KVKI.ANI > so long as his name re mains before the convention, the To- poka Democrat remarks: "Ho far consistency is concerned, the Kalina covention might just as well have declared for tariff reform, anil have proceeded to endorse the Mclvinley bill." The proficiency of some newspapers in arithmetical computations is astonishing. Recently the St. Louis Republic referred to the cost of a suit of clothes that had been advanced from $r>5 to 861 as being increased, 14 per cent,, and the Kansas City Journal went the Republic one better by declaring that the price of another suit, reduced from gar. to 815 hud been lowered 8 percent. The per cent, of increase in the case given is over 10, and the per cent, of decrease Is over 18. •• Senutor OOIIMA.N , since the almost certainty of Ci.EVKi.ANn't* nomination, has served notice that he can not spare the time to be chairman of the Democratic committee. Tin; rats are evidently deserting the sinking ship. The Wool Industry. The census bureau has Issued a bulletin > making a comparative showing of the wool industry in IBS" and 1800. The capital invested in 1880 in all branches of wool manufacture, excepting shoddy, was 81Rfl,uM,80«, in 1890 it had increased to 3290,983,104. The number of hands employed in 1880 was 10l,fj!>7. in 181in, Sin,087. The wages paid in 1880 aggregated S47,38»,087, in 1S90 they had reached 370.708,871. The cost of the material used was $104,371,551 in 1880. iind$!0:i,0!l5,U43in 1890. The value at factory of goods manufactured increased from Sl!G7,252, OKI in 1SS0 to 8338,2:11.1(» in 18fl0. it will be observed that the increase in the value of 'products manufactured is not in the same ratio as the increase in the nnmber of hands cm- ployed. This is accounted for by the fact that during the decade there was la' material reduction in the market value of goods covered by the report; but the increase in quantity—the true measure of progress—was most marked It will be observed, also, that while the increase in the number of hands employed was .'18.84 per cent , the increase in the aggregate amount of wages paid was 02 per cent., and the increase in individual wages was 20 per cent. This latter fact furnishes complete and iucontrovertible refutation of the charge frequently made that protection has not increased wages. While it would be a big thing to maintain the rates of wages while the prices of all commodities are being lowered, we find in the wool factories wages have been advanced 20 per cent, in ten years. If reliable statistics for the year 1891 were available they would undoubtedly show a great impetus over 181)0, which is conceded in commercial circles to have been unusually dull in the woolen goods industry. These figures apply to only one branch of the wool industry. The fact that the amount paid for raw material in 1890. was 838,721,000 .more than in 1880, and the further fact that the raw material was nearly all of home 'production indicate a large increase in the sheep industry of the United States. This is the growing industry that the present Democratic congress has attempted to stab by placing wool on the free list. The American wool grower is asked to compete with the cheap labor employed by the big sheep raisers of South America and Australia, or go out of the business. A strange fact in this connection is that certain congressmen elected by the votes of farmers almost exclusivcly should east their first vote for a measure that strikes a vital blow at an important agricultural industry. JERKY Siursox made an out and out clear cut free trade speech in congress last week. Who is the Honorable JKIIKV representing? The people of the big Seventh? Do the farmers of his district want free trade? The dyed in the wool native instinct born in our misrepresentative in his Canadian home proves loyal to Old England even while honored by the people of his adopted country. He is also objecting to our navy which is also more of his devotion to the country our forefathers fought in 1770.—Arlington Enterprise. A renomination of JISIIHV SIMPSON by the People's party must be construed into an endorsement by that party of absolute free trade, and the vagaries of IIKNIIV tJnoitGK's single lax theories, under which the farmers who own land would pay the taxes not only for the state and county but for the federal government as well, while the millionaires and rich corporations whose wealth is not invested in land would pay nothing. Are the farmers of the Seventh district ready to accept that sort of doctrine? 1'he intimation mat Mr. Union wm COMM. er the strain uixm Ills health a bar to His accepting the eliatnuansMp of the Democratic national committee a second time comes with all the cheerful scasonaulencsa of a weather report.

Mr. ymcu knows too well what a load GnovKllCi.EViiil.ANP will be to the man who uttoinptr to' engineer the Democratic end of the coming euro- puijfn. It is u significant fact that Mr. JONIIS of 'Hutchinson, candidate for congress in this district, is in town to-day talkiug with the people. He is a man who would bo an honor to the district and to the state, in congress, lie is not a politician in the ordinary acceptation of that term, but is one of the best posted men in Kansas on the issues of the day, and has done faithful work on the stump for several years for the Republican party.—Great liend News. • CIIAHI.ES IJ. HLAOKWKM ., of Medicine Lodge, one of JKKHY SIMI'SON'S lieutenants, in an interview with a reporter for the St. Joseph News, said of J. W. JONI'.S of this city: ' MONKS is too honest to be a politician in the thorough Bonse of the word." He may be too honest to be a "politician," but ho will be Vho next representative from the Dig Seventh. The people are hunting un honest man just now. o" It should be f»Uy understood, belter before the election than after it, that if the Republicans want to elect the next governor of Kansas they must nominate u western num. The oast has hod the ofllce long enough. A coal company proposes to snoot coal In u liquid form from the mines to large cities. This new scheme will in no way assist a man to liquidate his coal'bill.—St. Joseph News. A Oood .Speech. The Sterling Ilulletin-Gazctte publishes the following epitome of Lion. J. it. llnrton's speech before the Republican Kditorial association of the Seventh district, at its meeting In Sterling, last Tuesday night: The destruction of interest on money is the cornerstone of the People'8party. All other questions, such as ownership of railroads, the tariff, and what is called by that party the land question and the warehouse scheme fail to entice and carry captive from the old parties, any recruits. It is the money question, only, that excites any considerable interest among the adherents of that party, and every phase of the money question presented is designed to destroy the interest bearing function of money. The sub-treasury plan, the warehouse scheme, and the land and loan system presented by these are merely subsidiary questions. They are methods suggested to carry out the main idea, which is thnt the government furnish all money necessary to carry on thfc business of the country, at cost, that Is, no charge at nil shall be made by the government for the loaning of money to the individual except just enough to pay for putting it out. Again there is difference of opinion among them on every question save this one. For instance, Senator Peil'er is a protectionist. Jerry Simpson is a free trader. Senator Peffer, in the joint debates last fall, would not answer nor refer to my question as to whetheror not he favored the government ownership of railroads, nor would lie commit himself in favor of the sub-treasury plan orjothe land and loan system. His answer to the two last questions was that lie did not know; that these questions were subsidiary, merely methods suggested to carry out nnd put in practical operation the main principle of his party, which was the destruction of the. use of money for hire. A man may hire his horse, his house or his land, but ho shall not hire his money. These are Senator Peft'er's own words. Mr. Iturton then followed with a clear, concise and logical exposition of the relations of money to other property, and demonstrated that the destruction of the interest-bearing function of money carried with it the destruction of the value of all other property. It entails upon society, as a necessary result, the return to barbarism. The antecedent causes of the present state of things had their origin more than a decade ago. The spirit of American progress and the energy of our people brought into cultivation in ten years a greater area of farming'land than had been opened up in the preceding two and a half centuries. The enormous surplus resulting found a market in Europe, where there were three consecutive failures of crops, worse than had occurred for four hundred years. Our farmers receive high prices", and under jthe stimulus of the brilliant the whole Ration lost its senses and engttgea in gambling. Futures in options were the stock in trade; everything was bought for a rise which was to make the buyer rich. Meanwhile Europe had been exerting strenuous efforts to secure a new food supply. Not only has vast acres been brought under cultivation in the several colonies, but the means of transportation had been greatly improved, and above nil the Suez canal was opened, affording a short route for the cheap wheat of India; the refrigerator system was invented, laying down the carcasses of the cattle and sheep of the great plains of South America in Liverpool at a nominal cost. This brought the improved farms anil skilled labor of the United States into direct competition with free range and the half civilized labor of South America and Australia. India, Australia and South America began pouring in supplies of cheap wheat; Europe was blessed with enormous crops, especially in Russia, whose wheat raising area had been largely developed. This influx of cheap food worked a great reduction of prices which not only effected the surplus we had on hand, but that the little we had to spare from the short crops followed in this country Meanwhile the obligations incurred during the boom approached maturity pay day came, and pay day was the hen that hatched- the People's Party. Passing from this subject the speaker reveiwed the history of the conflict between the ideas of labor. These ideas have existed for centuries, and have met on many a hard fought battlefield. At Marston Moor at York-town and at Appomatox tlv blood that was shed was shed in this conflict. In the settlement of this country the two ideas came over. The northern or Puritan idea was that labor was dignified and honorable; that it should bo self directed by the intelligence of the laborer. The southern idea, inherited from the cavulicrs. was that labor was hishonorablo and disgraceful, and that the capitalists should own the laborer. The war between these two ideas was waged with varying success. Hy the emancipation proclamation of the immortal Lincoln the lust shackle of the slave was struck off, and when the great Gen. Lee surrendered his sword to the greater Grant a substantial victory was achieved. »«But the conflict is not yet ended. It is now transferred to the legislative halls.aud the debate waxes fiereo over tariff and free trade. The question of protection or free trade resolves itself into the proposition—shall the American producer be euabled to live in comfort, build up an American home, educate his family for future usefulness, or shall he be brought into such competition with the oppressed of other nations as to deprive him of the necessaries and comforts of life, and destroy his usefulness, as a customer except for the coarsest and cheapest products. The thinff to do is to build up manufacturing industries in our midst, to bring the consumer to the producer, not only OToiding the competition of the cheap meats of South America and the cheap wheat of India, but making a market for many of our productions which cannot bo sold abroad at all. It Is n livct that the shipments of poultry | and dairy products from: some coun­ ties in this state amount to a $1,000 a day, every pound of It to a home market, not one pound of which conld be sold hud we to depend upon shipping it across the ocean. If these things arc so to-day what will be the market of the Kansas farmer when the Rocky Mountains become filled with manufacturing towns, as,they will be under the bcnelicicnt influences of the Me- Klnley tariff? The character, ability and standing of the advocates of a reform are somewhat of n guide. Every great reform has been championed by some master intellects. The long list of illustrious names which have ndorned the pages of history suggest an equally long list of suceessf ul efforts in the cause of humanity. Whcrelire the great minds of to-day? The so-called new ideas advocated by the People's party tire simply old delusions, and among their advocates is not a single individual distin- tinguishud by even ordinary success in any line whatever. These facta are commended to the careful consideration of him who is just entering upon the dutieBof an American citizen. Mr. Hurton's address was absolutely free from asperity, vindictiveuess and charges of hypocrisy or fraud. On the contrary he frequently and emphatically affirmed that. the leaders and masses of the opposing parties were as honest in their beliefs as he was in his own. His fairness anil courtesy won golden opinions, while the cool logic of his cogent arguments was absolute and irresistible. A CUSH for Compromise. "Charles, dear," sho remarked us she poured his second, cup of tea, "tell me about the dodo, won't you pleusey" "About the what?" "The dodo." "Dodo? Dodo? Well, renlly, I don't know much about it. The. dodo, I believe, was a species of waterfowl, now extinct, or nearly so." "Is that why they are so expensive?" "EM Uui—I don't know about that, my dear." "But thev ara quite costly, aren't they?" "Well, really I can't say. I don't suppose they can bo obtained at all, or at least not rordily." "But what do you do with them, dear, after you purchase them?" "Eh? What's that?" "How do you use thoin?" "For heaven's sake, Nellie, are yon going crazy? Use what?" "Why, the dodos, to be sure—the dodos that you have been buying lately." "What in Hie world do yon mean?" "See here. This little account-book fell out of your coat this morning as 1 was brushing it. I am not a bit curious, Charles—yon know that—but I just glanced through this book, and couldn't help seeing that you've been buying dodos right along. Look! 'Drinks uud cigars, sixty cents; dodo, $2.30; dodo. $1.90; dodo, $3.10.' Now it occurred to me that if you buy so many of those extinct birds you might at least give mo a chance to see one of them." And thereupon that noble fellow pressed his wife to his bosom, imprinted an 18-carat kiss upon lier brow 'and promised Unit he would bring home the next dodo he bought, provided she would surrender the account book and agree to keep the matter a profound secret.—Chicago Hail.
