No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson. There is a pretty race between the St. TJOU'IH and Chicago hnse^ hall clubs — for the trial end. The Holsington Blade, under the ed itorial management of .Ion IIOHDKIIS, takes its place among the best weekly papers of western Kansas. . Since Mrs. I'EACK has stirred up such n ruction in the congregation of a Port Norris, N. J., church, her neighbors have'eome to the conclusion that her character belies her name. One of the wonders of South African vegetation is the milk tree, which exudes a sap which is a good substitute for cow's milk. The next thing we hear probably will be that some onter. prising Yankee is importing the lumber of this wonderful tree—to make pumps for milkmen. ilKJiitY SIMPSON grieves because the ships engaged in commerce come into our southern ports empty and go away loaded. How would it suit the western farmers if those ships came infilled with wheat from India, or corn from Argentine? That would be the result of .IKIIIIY'H absolute free trade policy. The Indiana Democrats' resolve that "Mr. CI.KVKI.AND is the logical candi date of the Democratic party" seems like something Ave heard just before the election of speaker Inst December. Mr. BOCIKK Q. Mli.i.s was then the "logical candidate"—stood right in the focus of "the logic of the situation." And then presently Mr. ROQF.II Q. Mli.i.s was sulking on the back seats and another man was handling the gavel. Logical candidates don't always get there.—New York Tribune. It appears from the dispatches that England is willing to participate in an international congress on bi-mctalism. If a respectable number of other nations unite in the movement for silver Oreat liritaiu will be forced to accept it. However, England at the present time would'lie glad to see the United States adopt free coinage. Then her grain importers could work the same scheme with Americans that is used in dealing with India—that of buying silver, or billsjreprcsenting it, at th bullion value in London and paying it out for wheal in India at the legal tender free coinage value. England would be a gainer by free coinoge the United States at the present time. it Is proposed by some Republican papers to put retlned sugars on the free list as a means of breaking down the trust. Tills is an un looked for confession, tt has been contended by;the high taxers all along that protection has no Influence whatever In fi it-ring trusts and that its sole benelltisin Uehalfof the worklnginen. Possibly If the friends of the movement will pursue their Investigations a little further they may Hud that the sugar combine la not the only trust that has grown oul-.of McKinleylsm.--Kau sits City Star. The highest aim of Republican protection is to encourage American industry and nbeneiit American labor. The moment any protected industry begins tojdevclop into a trust the Republican party stands ready to rebuke it. Protection is a lever to lift up la bor and pull down monopoly, und the Republican party Btands pledged to assist worthy industries, but to discourage every form of injustice and unfairness in business. The Balance of Trade. .S. (i. Brock, .chief of the bureau of statistics, has submitted his' report to the secretary of the treasury on our foreign commerce and immigration for the month »/ March, 1803. This report also embraces a statement of the value of foreign commerce, imports and exports, for tho twelve months ending March ill, 18U2, as compared witli the corresponding twelve months of five prior years. It appears from the report tluit the value of the exports of merchandise during the month of March was 881,8111,075, and for the same month in 1891 they were of the. value of 875,314,- O.and in 1890 872,825,922, so that thcro was uii excess in the exports in favor of March, 1892, over March, 1891, of SC',401,74,9, and over March, 1890, of 89.193,153. The statement of the value of exports for the twelve months ending March 31, 1892, shows an amount that is un precedented in the history of our com merce, for it is the first time :r, the history of our government that the exports of our country for twelve months have reached the magnificent sum of 81 ,01 )9,000,00 (1, and this state ment shows that the exact amount was 81,000,28), 5011. The value of our expo; for the corresponding twelve months of 1891 was 8872,008,286; for 1890, 8842,958,103: for 1889, 8723,738, 528; and for 1888, Stl94.258.815. It will be observed that the exports of twelve months ending March 31 1892, exceeded those of the correspond ing twelve months of the prior year by the large sum of 8134,270,220, and exceed those of 1890 by 8103,330,103, and of 1889 by the sum of 8282,545,988, and of 1888 by 8312,125,691. From this comparison it will be seen how wonderful has been the growth of our exports during the past five years. The value of imports during the month of March, 1S92, was alBO very large, amounting to $80,549,338, or 88 914,502 in excess of the value of the same in March, 1891, and 819,378,831 in excess of the imports of March, 1890. The total value of the imports for the twelve months ending March ,31, 1892. was 8837,050,585, and for the corresponding period of prior year the val ue was 8835,(100,334, and for the twelve months ending March 31, 1890, $707 334,879. It will be observed that for the twelve months ending March 31, 1892 we sold abroad over $1(50,000 ,000 worth of goods more than we bought. Another feature to which we desire to call attention is the large increase in the imports of free merchandise. Tile value of such imports for the twelvemonths was 8501.473,523, or over 55 per cent, of the total imports. The charge is frequently made that we have a 00 per cent, tariff. The fallacy of that statement is plainly seen by efereuce to £the figures. The tariff collected was less than 27 per cent, of the value of all the imports. Instead of h 00 per cent, tariff we have about a 25 percent, tariff. These figures slipw that while we are selling more goods abroad than ever before, we are buying less of those irticles that can be manufactured at home. Tint report is certainly the most gratifying that has ever been made, and if the American people are wise they will continue the policy under which we are so prosperous. was 8700,550,000, or about 810 per head for every man, woman and child in the kingdom. The amount spent for beer alone was 8390,000,000. The London Times says that "down the national throat there flows enough to provide the country with two navies and two armies, with the civil service thrown in, or very ncarlv so. It means that the beer drunk in ono year would pay the interest on the national debt for three; or f funded for nine years it would pay the whole debt and leave us with no more interest or annuities to pay." It has been 1 shown, however, that the consumption of tea. coffee and eocoa i s increasing far more rapidly than that of'intoxicating liquors, and another hopeful sign is that heavy drinking is becoming unfashionable. The drink bill of the United States with a population of 02,023,230, was last year 8900,000,000 or about 814.50 per head. It would be interesting to compute how much of the labor and wealth of the world are wasted on the two follies of drink and standing armies. posed shall come out of the treasury of tho United States, but wholly and unconditionally from the revenues of the district. This would have been the more advisable plan in the first instance: it is certainly the most advisable and only plan at the present juncture, and is free from all the objections, captious and otherwise, that have been raiBed to the action of the tenate. TO THE PEOPLE. A Letter From the Wholesale. Urocors of Southern Kansas. Take Your Choice. From the Newton Republican. At the late editorial meeting several candidates for,office wore present and gave the people the opportunity to estimate them. Two candidates each for the three offices of governor, secretary of state and for. congressman from the Seventh district, were there. With the two candidates for congressman in the field the people havo a chance to choose an excellent man either of which will do the district honor. It is difficult to choose between two such good men as J. W. Jones and Chester 1. Long. Mr. .Tones, perhaps, has an advantage in that he has given deep study to all .i.,. ..:*„i *i - 1 *.\.~ ,i— . i- The statement is given out from Hutchinson that upon their return from the Haliiia convention last week the delegates from that county and portion of the district, took stops to call a congressional convention and nominate a Btalwart Democrat for con gresB. The same statement avers that the Democratic editors are on the war path, and with tho exception of Editor RiciiAHDSON of the Wichita Beacon will come out squarely for a straight Democrat.' Inasmuch, however, as Editor RICIIAHDSON Is chairman of the district committee, It is not clear how the antt-fusioulsts will get up such a convention authorltivoly. It is but fair, though, to say that the chairman litis set the guuge of fusion officially for the Democracy, awhus it is petty rigid in its provisions—in the Hhape of Should the new rates lately ordered bythe slate board of railroad commissioners be ratllled \iy the courts, the Missouri river Jobbers would establish depots at Sallna, Hutchinson and Wichita, ami all the business would he done as now—by the Missouri river towns.—Kansas City Star. In that little paragraph the Star virtually concedes all that is claimed by Kansas. The wholesale houses that are now in Missouri would be removed to Kansas, while]those that are already here would remain, and be on the same basis as those that came in. Kansas wholesale towns want wholesale houses, and they do not care whether those houses come fromKansasCity,Chi­ cago, New York or where not. If Kansas City has some wholesale houses to spare, we will welcome them and their capital to the state.—Lawrence Journal. During the twelve months ending March 31, 1802, the exports of the United States increased 15.4 per cent, over the exports for the twelve months preceding. During ulmost the same period, or, more'accurately, for the year 1891, the exports of Great Britain decreased 5.6 per cent. Putting this and that together It is to be seen that protected America is rapidly wresting tho foreign commerce -from free trade England. Congressman FIJNSTON, of Kansas, says the Philadelphia Times, is a big, brawny and ponderous-looking man with the frame of a giant and the temper of a hedgehog, and when he gets mud the doep diapason of his thunderous objurgations rattles the reporters and shakes the putty out of .the house windows. He is noisier than JOK CANNON and kicks more when tired. 3ft>tie-y Kiiuundtired on The drink bill of tho nearly 88,000,000 of people in (ircat llrltaln lust year The following open letter has been issued regarding the rate question to southern Kansas cities headed "An Appeal to the People:" Owing to a systematic effort that is being, made b3' certain unscrupulous parties, through the^nediums of Kansas City und St. Louis newspapers and by circular letters scattered broadcast throughout the state for the purpose of deceiving the people as regards the true nature of the fight that 1B being made against freight rate discriminations, we, the undersigned, the complainants in the case, for the purpose of correcting the said misrepresentations and explaining to the people at large the true nature and justice of our cause, do respectfully submit below, as briefly as possible, an explanation which we affirm above our signatures to be a true statement of the essential features of our case. In order to economize space we will illustrate the discrimination existing upon but one article of merchandise— sugar. We would remark, however, that while the overcharge on this item is great, it is but a fair example of the discriminative charges made upon nearly every article bought by a merchant or consumer of this state. Hence we submit that our matter should claim the interest and hearty endorsement of every true and loyal citizen of Kansas, whether he resides in a city or upon a farm, as in any event the consumer pays the freight in the eud. It would also be well for the reader of this to remember that our fight is for a precedent, the result of which will largel3' effect, favorably or otherwise, the future efforts made in a similar manner by o'ther citizens of our state. The exact distance from New Orleans to Wichita via Fort Scott, Kan., is 939 miles. Of this through distance, the New Orleans railroads haul a car of .sugar to Fort Scott, a distance of 784 miles (or over four-fifths of the entire haul), and charge 30 cents per cwt. At Fort Scott the sugar is delivered to the Kansas line (the Missouri Tfacifie lailway) which hauls it to Wichita, a distance of but 157 miles and le^ than one-fifth the entire haul, and insists upon charging 30 cents per cwt., ma king the through freight charge to Wichita 00 cents per cwt. It will be ] readily seen from the above figures that that the discrimination and overcharge on this through rate exists between Fort Scott and Wichita, and hence it was that the railroad commissioners of Kansas ordered the Kansas railroads to lower their freight rates into some proportion to the charge made hy the New Orleans lines. Again, the Santa Fc company hauls New Orleans sugar directly through Arkansas City and Wichita to Kansas City and only charges the Kansas City merchant 30 cents per cwt., while if they drop the car at Wichita, the Wichita merchant is compelled to pay 00 cents, although the distance to Wichita is 221 miles less than to Kansas City. Again, the Santa Fe antl Union Pacific companies haul sugar from San Francisco through Hutchinson, Salina and Wichita to Kansas City, charging the Kansas City merchant 05 cents, and the interior merchant $1.01 per 100 weight, although the distance to the interior cities is 250 miles shorter. Is there any justice in this? Is it not an outrage'.' Are we not right in fighting such practices, and is it not to your interest to help us? It may be possible that we shall need your assistance, for we realize that we are fighting not only powerful railroad corporations, but also an immense combination of Kansas City, St. Joseph und other Missouri river merchants, who, having grown fat with the immense profit made out of the people, of this state, which profits were made possible by just such freight discriminations as we complain of, are endeavoring with a determination that is as desperate as it is unscrupulous, to overthrow the authority of our railroad commissioners who have dared to do their duty by the people of their Btatc.

The item of 8100,000 for subsistence and qttarters of veterans during the Grand Army encampment, which th senate inserted in tho District appropriation bill, though fair and just in itself, has provoked more or less criticism throughout the country, largely because of a general misunderstanding as to the peculiar relations which the District of Columbia bears to the federal government, having no municipal or law-making authority of its own, and for the further reason that there is a seeming inconsistency in taxing the old soldiers, no matter how inappreciably, for the expense on an entertainment to which they, hove been invited by the citizens of Washington. There is no time now, oven if it were possible, to explain to the country the reasonableness of the appropriation as it stands, and.under the circumstances, it will be better to so modify the proposition that no-part of the sum pro- Makes the Weak Strong The marked benefit which people In run down or weakened etato ot health derive from Hood'i SarBaparllla, conclusively prove!" tho claim that this medicine " mates the weak 1 strong."
