With the harmony Unit prevails in the Republican party and the distrust engendered among the people by the infamous record of the Democratic party In Missouri, that state stands in a fair way to be redeemed at the November election. JRIUIV SIMPSON prophesies that "the next congress will have forty third party men." Itut. the probability is that .IKRIIV will at that time be digging potatoes in Kansas and helping Mrs. SIMVSON boss that big furra. His days of wearing silk stockings are nearly over.—Chicago Inter-Ocean. It is a curious but certain fact that last winter's scourge of influenza in Knglaud was almost confined to well- to-do people. There may be, after all, some sort of recompense in the poverty that must perforce endure much out-door weather, in a pure though sometimes ineongenial atmosphere. The Hutchinson people arc making arrangements to entertain the Republican convention which meets in that city May ft. Kollowiug the example of Salina the citizens will know no partisan politics upon that occasion but will do all in their power to make the visitors welcome and comfortable. The NKWK invites politicians of all parties to be present, ami urges the people to keep open house, it wishes to establish a reputation as a convention city, so as to share future meetings. The salt of tile earth is located at Hutchinson.—Kansas City Times, J. B. of the Hutchinson Times announces that he will lie a candidate for congress in the SevenUi district. He estimates that several thousund railroad voters and other Democrats will not support .IKIIHY SI.MI'BON. it is an unexpected announcement as the Democrats of the state looked for a fusion on KIMI'BON. Itut somehow Alliance, candidates are more popular outside of their districts than within. HAKKH has attracted the least attention and has the best prospects for an election among all of the Alliance congressmen.—Kansas City Times. 11. E. TAI'IIKNICCK, chairman of tha national People's party central committee, has a letter in this week's issue of the Advocate, published at Topeka, in which he says concerning fusion: "Fusion means confusion and will lead to nothing else. We want all the votes we can get. We want every Democrat and Republican to come with us and we would •like to have every oilice within the gift of the people, but we can't afford to secure either votes or offices by bartering away our principles. The very moment we use them as trading stock and peddle them around to the highest bidder to secure an ofllce, we will sink into oblivion and we ought to. There is but one thing for UB to do, 'keep in the middle of the road.' Hoist the black Hag and neither give nor accept any quarter. Anyone who expects any of the old parties to give us any financial reforms by fusion, is a mental deformity." Notwithstanding Germany's removal of her unjust restrictions upon importations of American pork there is still u lively and not always honorable opposition in that country to the use of hog products from this side of the world. This opposition was strikingly shown last week by the concerted publication In many German uewhimpers of a report that large quantities of American pork examined at Stettin had been found to be infested with trichinm, and the eminent scientist, VIHCHOW, himself was quoted as having made the discovery. Professor VIHCHOW denied the statement wholly and vigorously us soon us his attention was called to it, but there is little doubt that the circulation of sueli stories, even though they nix- wholly false, will be a serious hindrance to the general introduction of American pork among (lemiitn consumers. The moral of it all is that American packers and ihlppers should spare no efforts to ren­ der their product so pure and unobjectionable that it can safely defy the attacks of its foreign enemies—New York 1 'rcss. Rate Discriminations. The Interstate Commerce Commission has rendered a decision in reference to the long and short haul clause of the interstate law, as affecting rates on sugar at Fargo and St. Paul from San Francisco, that should, and probably will, be made to apply to the iniquitous discriminations that have been made against the interior jobbers of Kansas by the railroads in the matter of freight rates. The railroads have been charging the Fargo jobbers a higher rate on sugar from Han Francisco than was charged the St. Paul jobbers, although Fargo is much nearer to San Francisco and sugar for St. Paul paBsed through that point. The com missioncrs held this to be an unwarranted discrimination and ordered its discontinuance. The case is, as far as we can see, identical with the condition that prevails in Kansas. The rates from San Francisco to Saliua and Hutchinson are higher than the rates to Missouri river points, although sugar hauled over the Ktntiv Fe line passes througl: Hutchinson and 'sugar over the i Union Pacific through Salina. Also, the same condition prevails in the cases of Wichita and Arkansas City, on sugar from New Orleans, the. tariff to those cities being nearly double the rate to Kansas City, althongh the distance is less. The commissioners held that in the Fargo-St. Paul case there was no competition to St. Paul by foreign railroads or water routes that warranted a discrimination in rates to St. Paul. Precisely the same conditions prevail in the case of the interior Kansas towns and Missouri river towns. In view of the fact that agents of the Interstate Commerce Commission are now investigating the matter of Kansas rates, we hope to see justice done our jobbers in the near future. Palmer's Endorsement. The action of the Illinois Democrats yesterday in instructing the state delegation to the Chicago convention to support the candidacy of .JOHN M. 1'AI.- MKH for president, may change the aspect of affairs in the national Democratic party. While the sentiment of a majority of Democrats may be for GHOVEH Ci.KVKi.ANn the judgment of the men who shape the policies of the party is against him. Since the Rhode Island election these leaders realize more clearly than ever, the folly of attempting to re-elect the ex-president. Had the convention occurred oa month ago CI.KVKI.AND would have been the nominee. At that time the race was between CLKVKI.AN'D and HII.I,, and the strong anti-Hit,I. sentiment in the west would have been sulncient to defeat him. Within the past few days, however, there has been a considerable change of sentiment. Knowing the apathy of the west to HII.I., and the hopelessness of another campaign with CI.KVKI.ANI> as a central figure, the Democratic leaders have abandoned the idea of making cither of these men the standard bearer in the next presidential contest. With the feeling that both ilux and CI.HVELAND are out of the race (after the convention if not before it) has come a strong inclination toward a western candidate. The fact that Illinois Democrats have instructed for PAI.MKU and that they were urged to do so by Democrats outside the state indicates that western Democrats are following the example of their eastern brethren and throwing over both HII.I, and CI.KVEI.ANO for some new man. The endorsement of PAI.MKH. however, docs not inevitably indicate his nomination. When other aspirants rccog- that u breuk has been mude they too wilt seek endorsements, and it is not improbable that within the next thirty days the contest will develop into a irrepressible scrumble for delegations among the dozen or more prominent Democrats who have presidential aspirations, but who have hesitated to press their claims until CI.KVKI.AND was out of the way. The Maple Nuggar Itounty u Failure. The maple sugar bounty has proved a complete and absolute failure. It appears that the bounty was claimed on less than 150,000 pounds of sugar all told, and if every pound drew the highest possible bounty the aggregate bounty would be only 83,025. Why did not the farmers make an effort to secure the bounty? There are several ample reasons. In the fli'st place, the whole business was surrounded and encompassed with an immense amount of red tape—and red tape is always an article extremely hard to digest,- particularly by the farmers. In the second place, the decline in the price of granulated sugar has caused a corresponding decline in the prico of maple sugar; and maple sugar lias also declined to the precise amount of the bounty. Suld a Uost,ou produce dealer to a Caledonia sugar maker: "'You sugar producers up there in Verflaont need not expect that you are going 1 to get the Ixmnty and tlie full price, too, for you won't get it. If sugar wouW) ordinarily briug 10 cents, we will deduct 2 cents for the bounty uuy pay you 8." Finally, everyone Uuows thai the- curliest sugar coin- 1 muiuls the highest prices; and the delay consequent upon obtaining the government's certltieute of purity counterbalanced any possible benefit the farmer could derive from it, so that upon this score it -was no object for him to apply for the bounty.—Kt, .lohnsbury Republican. 'Thci situation to KanMii*. Prom the American Hanker. The commercial, political and banking movements in Kansas during the last three or four years have engaged the attention of economists and practical business men throughout the country, It was upon her soil that one of the bitterest of economic battles was fought, and the results of that struggle are still visible. The rise of the farmers' movement waB to be expected under depressed agricultural conditions. A ioiluro of the crops leads men to look forlornly towards nil propositions that arc likely to offer means for mitigating the hardships which hear down upon them. The farmer saw funds centering in the banks which ho could not reach. There was a famine of money in a land of plenty. Was there tiny thing to be done except to destroy these institutions, which withheld from cirlation the money so urgently needed by him, and create a govern mental loaning agency to which he might • resort for the necessary funds? His imagination was filled with philosophic notions of the nature of money until the sense that designing men had kept him in ignorance of its true nature in order to satisfy their personal greed, forced him to organize for the qverthrow of a system which appeared to be founded npon shame and wrong. The farmers of Kansas made the mistake of starting out to realize a pure ideal. They overlooked those practical mens urcs for increasing their credit which lay at their very doors, Had they confined themselves to irame- mediate matters, the lamentations of their leaders would have fallen upon heedless ears and busy bunds. The extension of agricultural ere'dit (problem with which the bulk of our bankers have to deal. It is one which will doubtless be settled in process of time; it is the fundamental difficulty in Kansas, and to it is largely due the organization of the Farmers' Alliance. Aside' from the absence of enduring vitality which characterizes all movements founded on aims purely ideal, the decline of the Farmers' Alliance is to be attributed in a great measure to the successful crops of last year. These effects of these abundant harvests would have ad vauued the prosperity of Kansas farmers to a far greater extent had all other conditions been as favorable. A fuilure of crops in Europe is not so satisfactory a thing as was widely anticipated Impoverishment offers no profitable market. Nor were the local conditions wholly favorable,as the general complaint of the lack of sufficient facilities for the transfer of products shows. Hut aside from these modifications, the present condition of the state of Kansas is one that the most hopeful horoscopewonld not have predicted to aorive so%0^on. ICohcrt llrownlnff's CoiirtUliil*^ ~ As we all know, it was J\Ir. Ken von who lirst introduced Robert Urpwning to his future wife; and the story, as told by Mrs. Orr, is most romantic, rife poet was about 'V2 years of age at this time, in the fullnessof his powers. She was supposed to be a confirmed invalid, confined to her own room and to her couch, seeing no one, living her own spiritual life, indeed, but looking for none other, when Air. Kenyon lirst brought Mr. ltrowniugto her father's house. Missjliarrett's reputation was well established by this time. "Lady tieraldine's Courtship" was already published, in which its author had written of drowning among other poets as of "some pomegranate, which, if cut deep down the middle, shows a heart within blood-tinctured, of a veined humanity;" and one can well believe that this present meeting must have been but a phase in an old and long-existing sympathy between kindred spirits. Very soon afterwards the poets became engaged, and they were married in the autumn of the year 18411. Who does not know the story of this marriage of true souls? Has not Mrs. Browning herself spoken of it in words indelible and never to be quoted without sympathy by all women? while he from his own fireside has struck chord after chord of manly feeling than which this life contains nothing deeper or more true. The sonnets from the Portuguese were written by Elizabeth Barrett to Mr, Browning before her murriage, although she never even showed them to him until some years after they were man and wife. They were sonnets such us no Portuguese ever wrote before, ov ever will write again. There is a quality in them which is beyond words, that echo which belongs to the highest human expression of feeling. Hut such a love to such a woman comes with its own testament.—From 'Robert and, Elizabeth ltarrett Browning," by Anne Tliaekery Ritchie, In Harper's Magazine for May. , The True reople'n Mouoy. The true "people's money" is the best money; that is, the money which will buy the most of what every man needs, and which will be worth the same this week as it was last, the same next year as this year. There is no security for savings of nny kind with any other standard of value, no safety for loans, no interest on bank deposits. The man who declares cheap money in unv form to be the "people's money is the worst possible enemy of the people, for his policy, if carried out by the government, would rob the people of a large portion of their hard-earned suv- ings; would cut down their wages, uud would tlwow the whole business of the country into confusion and doubt, sending paralysis and disaster into every industry and into every branch of trade and commerce. The worst sufferers would be the toilers of mil kinds, the people of moderate means, and the poor. I f the advocates of free coinage were honest in their contention that the country's welfare would be enhanced by having both silver and gold ns a basis for its currency, they would consent to the coin- ago of a silver dollar worth 100 cents; but this they refuse to do. They refuse to accept an honest dollar, and insist upon a dishonest dollar. They are not serving the people, but are serving the devil, and the issue which they raise, far from being a political one, is a moral one of the first magnitude.— Topics of the Time, in The Century for May. • A Ueucrnl Utility IK-aulutlou. From the Dodge City Globe-Republican. Since the Salina convention, we con versed with a leading Democrat who attended that delectable affair. He was still somewhat animated by the dying embers of hilarious enthusiasm im bibed at the gathering of' the un washed. When we inquired the cause of his elation he began to tell about the glorious work they had done by resolving in favor of. free silver. The pencil pusher then modestly asked what they would do with Cleveland. At mention of the II lustrious gold bug champion, our Dem ocratic friend's face became radiant with joy as he told of the wild enthusiasm with which that bitter opponent of silver money was indorsed for the presidency. We suggested there was a slight inconsistency in the indorse­ ment of a free silver financial measure and a man so uncompromisingly opposed to it. The Bourbons face took on a perplexed expression while the "lines of care upon his cheek' denoted the gray matter in his crani urn was in unwonted activity. Finally a peaceful smile announced that the vexing problem was solved. He said: "Well, when I come to think again, the free silver resolution was so worded as tfi do very well for gold standard purposes in ease of emergency—it isn't much of a free silver resolution after all." Mutual CoudplcnccM. "Folks well, Johnny?" inquired the young man who was waiting in the parlor for Johnny's sister to come down. "Not very," replied the little boy. "Maw's got the rheumatism. It's in her right foot. 1 wish," he wailed, with vivid recollections of a spirited interview half an hour before with his mother and a slipper, "I wish she had a touch of it in her right arm." "is your father ever troubled with rheumatism, .(ohnny?" "Yes, he's got it in his shoulder blades and one of his arms." "Ever since one night last January," sighed the youug man, plaintively," "I have kuown that he is never bothered with it in his right foot." And while the night winds moaned drearly outside and the cat asleep on the hearthrug snored uneasily in its slumbers the two victims of misplaced rheumatism sat in the little parlor and condoled with each other.—Chicago Tribune.
