SIDLINO-ER, THE V DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson •Improvements that have Getting out of Debt. The Census IJurcau hus just Issued a •bulletin showing the national debts of foreign countries and the United States for the census years of 1880 and 18(10 aud the. state unci local debt of the United States lor both periods. The figures are. interesting. The national debt of nil countries, including the United States, was ?28,5:t0,288,89(1 in 1880 and 828,(148,3(12,081 in 180(1, an increase during the decade of 8118,103, 791. The national debt of our own country was Sl,02.Vi 17,304 In 18S0 and $8111,000,104 in IS'.W, a decreuse of SI (>3u,5!>7,!<(U). The inereuse in foreign debt, therefore, was the amount of the decrease of our awn debt added to the total increase, or S1,KI7,72!I,2M1. The per cent, of total per capita decrease is froii) S.'17.27 in 1880 to SM.HIi in 1800. while the per capita decrease in tlie of the United States was from 838.XI 1880 to Sll.2-1 in mill. While a few political economists proceed upon tlie theory that public debt is a good tiling, most people, believe that u prosperous nation lilce a prosperous individual, should be free from indebtedness. To this class at least the figures given above will In gratifying. If the magnificent record of the last decade can be maintained throughout this, we will enter tlie twentieth century free from debt, or at least with sntlieient funds in the treasury to meet all outstanding obligations^ The figures in reference to the local indebtedness of the United States, in- eluding state, county and municipal, however, show a slight increase in the uggregate, although there is a decrease in the per capita. The total amount of such indebtedness in 1811(1 was SI, 1 .'1 .-1 ,210.4against SI,UJ.'l,278,047 ij 1880, an inereuse of Sll,u:U,7!>"), but ( per capita decrease from S22.40 in 1880 tn ?1». J3 in 1SB0. Tlie ,existing local debt is divided us follows: State, 8228,007,38!); county, Sl-15,048,015; municipul, 721.(03,0110, and school district, 830,701,1)18, the latter being the only por tion of the local indebtedness which shows a per capita inereuse during the decade. The per capita decrease in the statu debt is from 85.03 to $3.UH county from 32.47 to S2.32, and muuici pal from 813.01 to $11..17. There are abundant reasons for an increase of state, county and municipal indebtedness. The rapid deveiopm?n of new states, the building of new public buildings, bridges, water works and other improvements has entailed enormous outlays of money. States, counties and cities have found it more expedient to issue bonds and secure tlie immediate benefits of public works than to await until a sufficient cash has accumulated to pay for such improvements outright. When we take into consideration the vast territory that has been developed, the number of new cities built unci new counties organized, it is surprising that the local debt does not show an increase per capita. Hut the decrease per capita of the local debt by over $4 and the decrease of the national debt by overS24, or a total reduction of both local aud national, indebteduesH of over |28, shows that there is nothing alarming in the combined indebtedness that yet remains to be paid. A reduction of $28 per capita during the present decade would leave but 84 per capita in 1000. It is not reasonable, however, to expect that such a reduction will be made. Wo have a vast territory yet to be developed, and many notified, public improvements to he made. These figures might be extended to private indebtedness and the same gratifying result would appear. The American people ure prosperous, in spite of tlii) allegations to the contrury by the calamity howlers. They are devoting their resonrceB to paying their debts, und while other nations are becoming more und mora involved we are approaching a cosh basis, in the general prosperity no state is doing better than Kansas. Our indebtedness may bo large but It represents only small per cent, of the millions of dol A Protective Tariff for Revenue. When the ltepublicnn party came into power in 1801 it found a revenue system totally Inadequate to the ordinary expenses of the Government. Mn. Uiif 'tiANAN 's administration had expended abqut 800,000,000 more than its receipts. To repair this Indequate system, as well as to provide as far as possible for the extraordinary expenditures of the war, a new tariff was framed and on protective lines. Many changes have been made since then, first to force up the revenue to the highest available point, and then after the war to reduce the levies as fast as tho exigencies of the treasury would ollow. And the success of these financial measures is now a matter of history. The world was astonished at the magnitude of our income, at the rapid payment of the war debt, at the immense reductions of our tax schedules, at the appreciation of our credit, at the accumulation of specie in the national treasury. Without going into particulars, it will suffice to say that no nation in all the world's history can present a financial record at all compared with ours. The one fact to be impressed upon you is, that In every change in our revenue laws made by the Republican party, whether to increase or reduce the revenue, the tariff was always adjusted ou protection lines; and every such adjustment has been eminently successful ns a financial measure. Our latest tariff—the McKinltiy bill—is eminently protective. While its free list has been extended beyond any former precedents, its protective duties have had strict reference to competitive imports, and to the higher scale of wages and of living in the United States, compared with other countries. Against this policy the Democratic party is now making its fight. reality for the express purpose of ahus- ing 1 'rcsident UArtitiso.v and his administration. Of all the. frauds on the face of the eartli ST. Jons heads the list—that is as a worker in the cause of temperance.—Sedalia (Mo.) Gazette. In A AYKR, special agent of :tlie treasury department, who has been investigating the tin-plate business of the country, predicts that within two years the manufacturers In this country will be turning out \ipwards of 0,000,000 pounds of plate. This will constitute a fulfillment of the condi tion necessary to, a maintenance of the duty after October 1, 185)7. HA.TKIRI.II, of Wichita, will be a candidate before the convention here next week for elector. It 1B pure ly an honorary position and yet one of great trust. He is a young Republican whose party services have won for him a state reputation and he well worthy of the place he asks. As an orator and worker he has few equals. "The Sunflower State." The good work begun by the people of Kansas last fall when they broke the back of the "calamity" movement is bearing fruit in the way of restored conlldeuce in the honesty, integrity and prosperity of our people. The political campaign made by the Alliance of two years ago was a monstrous libel on our state, and its influence throughout the country was of a very unenviable character. The lies traveled on the wings of the wind, but the truth is slowly overtaking them. The New York Sun in a recent editorial 'said: We welcome the reports that have been sent from Topcka every month of this year about the raising of farm mortgages in the stato of Kansas. The eport for March shows that during that month, the mortgage iudebt- meat of the fanners was lightened by over a half million dollars, and that the releases of the month amounted to nearly two million dollars. All over the state the farmers are seized with a noble desire to clear oil' mortgages, and it seems that a large pro portion' of them - know whet- to find the money needed for Unit purpose. The big erops that were harvested last year have been of good service to them. The crop pros peels of Kansas for the present year are first rate, and the farmers may get even more money for the hurvest of 1803 than they got for the last harvest. In that event, the business of mortgage raising will go, we trust, until every Kansas farmer holds a free, clear, and unencumbered title to the land which he cultivates. We advise the .whole of them to clear off mortgages, and then work harder than ever to put some money in the savings hunk on interest. A good lot of them are banking already. According to the latest bank reports, there has been a heavy increase of deposits by farmers within a year, and at this time they own just about one-half of the $18,000,01)1) in the banks of the state, besides owning nearly one-sixth of the bunk stock. Why, it really seems as though Kansas, from which we have had so many deeding and calamitous talcs from the days of the border ruffians to those of the Alliance, will soon be able to wear worthily that title which hus so often looked like a satire on her record, The Sunflower State." \ road men has set this class against him in a body. There Is also another class, strlnll in number It is true, yet capable of great resistance, that will not support .1 crry Simpson this time.and that is tho more intelligent and thinking farmer Democrats who yielded a point of principle two years ago in the belief that Mr. Simpson possessed substantial and lasting abilities and were willing to give him an opportunity of development. But to their disappointment and chagrin they And that when ho abandons the role of a clown he ceases to be interesting, and that, in the serious debates in congress, as on the wool hill, he exhibits a lack of information, education and thought that is disappointing in the extreme. All of these opposing influences we find to be deep-rooted and unyielding, so that in the event the Democratic party should attempt to carry Mr. Simpson through another election, defeat would be inevitable. Now, we want to save the party this humiliation. The concession would be great enough with success, but to be defeated In the undertaking, the situation would be painful. A§ to Tlu I'lnte.

It will be the object to give Kansas again the proud political position it once occupied in the great union. The party is aggressive, and it has never lost a battle whet it presented that attitude. Ex-Governor ANTHONY has friends enough to elect him congressman-at- large, if he hasn't enough enemies to prevent him from getting the nomination. If the enthusiasm with which Major WAIINKH'S candidacy is being received continues throughout the campaign, he will be the next governor of Missouri. It has been arranged that the ratifications of the liehring sea treaty of arbitration between the United StateB and Great Britain shall be exchanged at London next week instead .of at Washington, ns originally contemplated.

It is curious to notice how unreliable are many of the dispatches which are being sent out of this district, with reference to whom the various delega tious will support for the various stato and congressional offices. It is also curious how some people fool themselves by trying to fool others. Such information docs Topelca statesmen great injustice, for a man hud better remain ignorant than he misinformed Some Republicans made a great fuss about the sins of omission committed by ex-Senator I NO ALMS during the campaign last fall. Will some of them now tell us what Maj. MOHBII.L did? Democrats of the Se-ventli District. From;thc Hutchinson Times. The daily press of Kansas and Kansas City has had much to say since the Sulina convention about congressional matters in the Seventh district. The Kansas City Times of Wednesday con tained the following: J. 11. Crouchof the Hutchinson TlmeH, an nounces that he will be a candidate for con gress In the Seventh district. He estimates that several thousand railroad voters and other Democrats will not support Jerry Simpson. It Is an unexpected announcement as the Democrats of the state looked for a fusion on .Simpson. Hut somehow Al llance candidates are more popular outside of their districts than within. The Times has been led into tho belief that Mr, Crouch was a candidate by the highly colored special in the Kansus City Star of the 23d inst. But the fact is that he has never announced himself either directly orlindii^BatJy nor has he authorized any one to do so. What he did say to the Topeka repre sentative of the Star was, that inasmuch as there was a generally ex pressed desire for him to make the race, and if there could be no one found who was willing aiid ready to take the nomination and make a vigorous eau vass, then he would accept tho nomination. Mr. Crouch does not resort to the arts and tactics of the politician. He is saying what he means andmunns exactly what he says on this congressional matter. There is one tiling that he is determined on, and Ifhat is, that whoever makes the race on the Democratic ticket shall be a man who is thoroughly Democratic in principle, has the courage of his convictions, and will stay in the race till the end and not abandon the fight at the last moment. The Leavenworth Standard is also led into error on this question toy the special to the Star, and makes the following comment: The above which appeared in the papers yesterday is a surprise to us. We. knew there were objections to Clover, Otis and Baker and good objections, too, but never dreamed that Jerry Simpson would have any opposition from the opponents of the liepublican party. Mr. Crouch who is Spoken of as a candidate for congress on the Deinu cratic ticket is a well equipped, honest, con HcieutlouK editor who Is doing and has done good work for the party, and if he lived in any other district we would be willing to work night and day to aid in his election. 1 f he succeeds In securing a straight nomina tion IV will be the duly of every Democrat to support him, but Is it wise to antagonize Simpson this time": One of the most embarrassing features of this congressional matter is the fact that the active interest of Mr Crouch in behalf of a Democratic nomination has coupled his name with the candidacy itself. Such a turn of the question is as great a surprise to to him as the Democratic opposition to termined that they would allow no tin plate manufactured, and hundreds of writers were set to work to prove that tin plate could not and would not be made in this country and that the McKinley law which placed a duty on it was an outrage to the American people, compelling them to pay "tax" to the manufacturers. What is the result? The special agent of tho treasury department has iust made MB report, and in it he says that during the first quarter after the law went into effect there were manufactured in the United States a totjil of 826,022 pounds; during the second quarter the report shows that 1,409,831 pounds were made during the third quarter ending March 31, 1802, there were 3,004,087 pounds. In addition to this the markets show that the prices are lower now than they -were before the tariff was put on. Thus has every "theory" of the Democratic free traders in reference to tin plate, and every lie published by Democratic newspapers been refuted in less than a year from the time the tin plate schedule went into effect. jTry the NKWS want column.

HAVE YOU A SPRING SUIT That greatest of all blatherskites, ex-Oov. ST. JOHK, of Kansas, spoke at Clinton Weduosduy night, ostensibly in the Interest of temperance, but in Mr. Simpson is a surprise to"Mr. Lynch. We trust that in this matter of a Democratic eaudidate for congress in this district that the idea that Mr. Crouch is seeking the nomination be wholly eliminated from the question. We, like Mr. Uyueh, thought until four or five weeks ugo that Mr. Simpson's candidacy eonld be made acceptable to the Democrats, but u more intimate knowledge of the sentiment in this district has convinced us that, even with a formal endorsement of his candidacy, his election would he extremely Improbably. Two years ago many Democrats in this district were induced to support Mr. Simpson upon the suggestion and belief that two years later would find him and his followers In the Democratic |party. Instead of that being true they find him and his partisans farther away from the Democratic party and more arro- gunt than ever, and they are therefore unalterably opposed to supporting him 'again. Also, two years ago, Mr. Simpson had the solid railroad vote of the district, which is the largest of any- district iu the stute, but this year he could not get one per. cent, of it.
