Each county in the lVig Seventh has now named its delegates, to the Kingman convention. Uow many of these deleg-ute.s have madeup their minds already that the most important interest of the district is in measures not men. It is easy for one to support n candidate if he happens to be a personal friend, but in the larg-er duties devolving upon the delegate, he owes it to his constituency, to his district to consider first the measures that will be of (frcatest benefit to the people and then, and not till then, look around for the man who can best fill the measure of the peoples' demands. There are a number of states that cover ICBS territory than is in the Big Seventh. What are the interests of paramount importance to the people of this largo urea? The farmer's in terest takes first rank. Nothing must bo left undone to secure his prosperity This helps all of us, for when he pros pers every city and town in the district in turn prospers. Then attention must he given to the masses that, first, will help to secure better prices for what tlie farmer has to sell, and this involves the transportation charges of our rail roads. Second, we must do our utmost to help those who have located upon lands, which by reason of insufficient water supply makes it difficult to obtain value for services laid out thereon. These lands cover nprentcr or less urea in the district and they can certainly be multiplied in value many fold by irrigation. The interests of our people arc that this subject \>e taken up uud drummed into the ears of congress until it is forced to listen to their just demands thereon. The states cannot do the work because their rights conflict. With proper irrigation of lands that can be irrigated, there nro millions of acres in a strip at leust one hundred utiles wide and extending from Manitoba to central Texas along the east side of the Kocky mountains that could be easily made to provide homes for millions of industrious citizens on the most fertile lands in America. This would speedily bring buck to all the cities and towns of the plains the prosperity they have hoped for. Hvery citizen in tli Uig Seventh is vitally interested in this great question. Then again, every man, woman and child that has chosen Kansas for n home should consider another question. Thousands of persons owning lands or town lots in this district have hoped and still hope to sell their holdings at a fair price. Will it help them to do so if immigration can be again started into our district? Great efforts have been made and are still being made by the towns along tlie southern border of the state cast of the IKltta meridian to secure the opeulng of the cheap Indian lands of the Territory. We are willing to admit and are able to see how this may operate to greatly extend the trade and prosperity of these towns, but how Vies it help the toiling, struggling \ner of the Jlig Seventh, and espe i.i' v how does it help the citizen of Kansas who has chosen the western half and the northern half of the district for his home. It attracts away :"ro.n him the very people who would bring to him prosperity if they wovtM but seek homes in his locality. It is easily seen how ft few towns in the district can be greatly benefited by drawing off from the district and peo- pleing the territory, and it is easy to see why they should use all their energies in this directum. Hut this is not the interest of the great majority of th« people of the Big Seventh. These arc matters that every delegate to the Kinginun convention should consider. They should take them up at. their homes and discuss them with their people before coming to Kingman that their full force may be uude/- siood. Hutchinson is interested in this ma' tcr, as can be readily understood. ll«sv interest is to build up and fill with prosperous citizens the entire Big Seventh, and not the strip on the south only. Every throb ot her business pulse beats in harmony witb the. Interests of the cities and counties to the north, west and southwest of her. A hundred thousand people seeking homes in the district will be of far greater importance to our citizens than to send n hundred thousand to the south, of us. The polluy oi this paper is and lias been wtdl understood on these questions. Wo are for the prosperty of the territory of the. whole district well knowing that in turn Hutchinson will be in the procession. Why should the delegates to the Kingman convention consider these matters? llccuuse ones environments so often control his actions. Our zeal to build up western Kansas may lead us to give undue importance to this matter, but it does sectns to us that we should, abilities being equal, choose a condidate for congress who has every inducement behind him to work for his entire district. But aside from all this, the district is very fortunate. The Hon. J. W. JUNKS of this city, is a candidate for congress. Every one who litis even met him knows that he is a perfect enthusiast in favor of the up-building of the country west, even to pcopleing the western mountains for the benefit of our farmers. It is doubtful if any other man in the district is so well equipped to command the attention and respect of congress in our behalf, He not only has faith in our resources, but he has an aggressive courage so loaded with facts that he carries conviction to his hearers. No other man in the district is so strong among the farmers and laboring classes and his nomination is already, practically assured. His election is certain to follow and with it confidence will be restored, and some national legislation will be secured to the great good of the district. The Farmers and Protection. The farmer reasons this way: "Yes, this Is a protective tariff, this McKlnley bill is. It protects the manufacturers by putting a tax on foreign products which causes the foreign product to sell for more money, in our home market. Now, you see I have to sell wheat, corn, oats, P«rk, beef and hay to buy these manufactured products and this tariff does not help me to get one cent more for my products, therefore, I am opposed to It. This thing Is a wrong and I do not pro pose to join the Republicans In upholding it. or the Democrats In reforming it: I am in favor ot wiping it out root and branch.— Wichita Beacon. That may be the way that sucli farmers as Editor RICHARDSON , who doesn't know a disc harrow from a calf weaner, may look at the matter, but the intelligent agriculturalists who have taken the puns to inform themselves in reference to the workings of the protective tariff will not agree to any such doctrine. In the first place the farmer who is posted knows that the protective tariff has helped him lo get better prices for what he lias to sell. The development of our manufacturing industries has furnished him a home market for well nigh all his farm products. In seasons of plenty he has a small surplus to send abroad, but It is incomparable to the vast amount of stuff sold and consumed in America. Furthermore he has learned that* tne- forcign market for farm products in a snare and n delusion. During the past year, when the great r3'e fields of Russia and Hungary failed, and thehalf of Europe was confronted by famine, a thorough test was made of the foreign market, and what was the result? Europe simply came into our markets mid bought when they could not buy elsewhere cheaper. We could have sold more if we had been content to sell cheaper. What hope is there in the European markets in ordinary years when Kussia raises (100,000,000 bushels of rye more than she raised this year, or when I ndia can supply all the wheat Europe needs at prices a third less than our farmers con afford to take? The farmer realizes that protection has transferred millions of Americans from agricultural pursuits and made them buyers instead of sell ers of farm products. He understands that the moment our factories close and we begin to buy our goods abroad these millions will return to the farms, and instead of being customers of the farmer will become his competitors. Again, the farmer realizes that whil the protective policy has given him i better market for his products, it has given him better goods and cheaper goods than he can get abroad. This statement is borne out by the statist! of every branch of manufacture covered by the tariff. The latest iuston is that of tin plate. Before the Mc­ Klnley law went into effect no tin plate wus made in America. To-day twenty factories are turning out a bet ter article than wo have been able to import and selling it at less prices than were paid before the law went into effect, The abolition of the tariff would not as a rule cheapen goods. Inmost cases would ultimately result in higher prices Foreign factories would flood this country for a time at low prices, anil wl'en ever our factories had closi prices would advance higher than ever, The abolition of tlie tariff on Bugur was a notable exception, due in part to the wide ?ange of competition in the sugar industry and in part, to the wise reciprocal clauses injected into the law. We believe the farmers understand these things and will rebuke any attempt to tear down the bulwark that stands between them and the ruination that came to the English farmers when Ureal Britain adopted a free trade policy. capable man. Will the Republicans of Pratt shake hands with the Republicans from Kent) this year? Prices of Farm Produce. The failure of the crops in all parts of the world except America, last year, enabled our farmers to market the largest crop of cereals this country has ever produced under the most favorable conditions possible. Former rivalB and competitors became patrons of American husbandry. For nearly a year the world' has been largely dependent upon us for Its daily bread. IJ is not an exaggeration, then to say, that during the past seven or eight months the American farmer has done business under the very best conditions attainable without a revolutionary change in the relations existing between the United Slates and foreign countries. Oreat Britain, Germany, I taly, Austria and France have been compelled to buy American grain and provisions, while Russia, heretofore one of our most powerful competitors, has been the recipient of American charity, finder these conditions, American wheat has at no time commanded a price very much above the cost of production. The same is true of farm products generally. For weeks the tendency of prices has been downard, and it will not be surprising if the coining harvest sees wheat selling at prices more discouraging than now prevail, So much for a year in which the American agriculturist had things all his own way. Now, what would be his condition to-day if in foreign lands Inst year the yield of breads tuffs had been up to the average? The question is not difficult to answer. Wheat would be selling at 115 cents a bushel at Baltimore and 40 cents in Missouri: This conclusion is not pleasant, but its accuracy will hordly be called in question.—St. .ioseph Uazettc. Ah! At last it has begun to dawn upon our Democratic contemporary that "selling in the markets of the world" is a free trade snare and delusion that would bankrupt every wheat grower in America. The Uazette right in its deductions above. If we failed to realize big prices in the Euro pean markets tlve past season we have uo reason to hope for better things in the future. The only "revolutionary change" that will be effective is the raising of the wage standard in the wheat countries of Europe and Asia. The better plan is to build up a home market that will take all our farm produce at good prices. OUR FIRST SHOT FOR MAY. We start our SPECIAL SALES for this month with a sensational offering.
