SIDLINQER, THE V DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson, Although politics are hot the weather remains cool. Delegates to the Minneapolis con vention should go unhampered by in Ktructions. How are the mighty fallen! The amateur circus has supplanted the FOI.BTON and UHOWNING CIUDB in the affections of Bostonians. The average political striker endors es and follows the Quaker's maxim "Ascertain what kind of advice is wanted and then give it freely." Senator PKIUUNB cmployB three clerks and two phonographs to assist him in answering his voluminous mail. Kan sans are an inquiring people. If all the KausaiiB would get what they ask for at Washington, several thousand Virginians would be com pelled to go buck to "raisin terbaeker. The Democratic congress is doing much investigating of Republican officials, but is only making the Repub lican victory next November more cer. tain. The fanners who voted for .TKKBV SIMPSON in the belief it would help them in getting more money will derive little satisfaction from that gentleman's declaration, that what the farmer needs is more taxes on his land. Of Interest to Business Men. There is every reason why every citizen of Hutchinson should talk and work for Hon. J. W. .loNKB for congress. This is especially true of the owners of property or anyone who expects to own property in this city. For years Reno county supported men for both congress and senate who did not live in it, and who owned no property in Hutchinson or Reno county. They had no interest in our affairs, except a general one. In fact in some instances their personal interest and the interest of their closest friends wore really adverse to the interests of this city. Hutchinson has never been bene fitted by thiB course.' It has found that it is not best to always go away from home to find friends. It has looked over heads and hearts at home, capable and willing, to help others. It is now time to be selfish enough to support a home man for congress. Notwithstanding Hutchinson is one of the largest cities in Kansas, it has been unable to secure a public building, when ev«n Emporia, Salina and other smaller towns have secured them. The political power of this county has seldom been exerted to its full extent, and this to its detriment Reno county should not be more selfish than her neighbors, but should look after her own interests or they will surely suffer. The interest of Reno county lies in the development, not only of Hutchinson, but in the de velopmont of every city, town and county in the western end of Kansas, Hutchinson's development largely depends upon ; the development of the territory'to the west, hence the community of interest. If the ultimate outcome of tho western half of Kansas were known, the future of Hutchinson could be truly foretold. All this Mr. JONKS understands and his policy would be shaped accordingly. ' Every business interest should therefore expend its force in the present flattering opportunity to elect JONES to congress. Support home men, for it is praatieal wisdom. Hy making others strong you make yourself strong. By having strong men in our city it makes our city and county strong and powerful. The city is practically a unit for JONES, but no stone should be left unturned to make him strong abroad. chosen. Edncotion is the great work which devolves upon the candidate. It is only through it that the masses will bo lifted above anarchy. The men who may be nominated should be thoroughly informed in the political history of the day, and competent to analyze and explain all of the economic lawB upon our statute 1>CK>US in their canvass. In this connection, it is a pleasure to say that Hon. J. W. Janets, Iteuo'B candidate for congress, is eminently qualified to canvass the district and to educate the people upon the great topics before them. Upon the transportation question in which the people are so deeply interested he is in spirit and in truth with the people. He is at home in all the varied phases of a tariff discussion, and for any other feature of political war. Offering to the party a candidate so thoroughly equipped for the work, we feel that it is our duty to press his nomination in every houorable way. It will make success certain. If .IKKKY Sl.ursox expects to be re nominated by the People's party, he hud better put a muzzle on the Wichita Beacon. A maninuy be able to contend against his enemies, but there is an inevitable fatality in the misdirected zeal of one's foolish friends. of making him president of that 6rgan- izatlon and getting a speech put of him. The eostern papers ore quoting Ingalls as saying that lie did not want to go to the senate on a hearse. That remark was first mad" to Al Green in Atchison last March at the G. A. R. encampment. Ingalls was standing in the ' flies at tho opera house, waiting to go on and make a speech. Ho was questioning Qreen in the interim about how the boys regarded him. Green told him that if he would get out and, make an active campaign he would go to the senate thiB winter. Ingalls turned squarely around to the commander of the G. A. R. and glaring at him for a few seconds, and then calling up that harsh, pounding volee he uses in his dramatic monologues, said: "No, sir, I do not want to go to the senate—not- now. And.do you imagine I would ride back to the senate on a hearse, to remain only two years?" But in 1885 Mr. John J. Ingalls will not be in the shadow of the bier and the "not •now" will have become inoperative by tho statute of limitation. Commerce has so increased between the United States and Brazil under reciprocity that the American mall line, which used to find five steamers more than enough, has had to draft nine ad ditional ships into its service. Nor are all the advantages of the new arrange ment monopolized by America. For the first five months during which the treaty was in operation the exports of Brazil to the United States reached 839,000,000, a gain of .814,000,000 over those of the corresponding period of the previous yenr. Thus reciprocity, or the interchange of non-competing products, benefits both parties to the transaction—both those who give and those who take. Mr. OYBTKH, chairman of the People's party of Miami county, Kansas, denies over his own signature and full official title that his party in thatcoun- ty has declared in favor of fusing with the Democrats. The Miami Democracy, therefore, must flounder in its own exclusive soup.—Chicago Tribune. For the first three months of the year we sent to Havana nearly fifteen times as much Hour as wtf did during the corresponding period of last year, Spain in the meantime has sent thither only 450 bags of flour against 85,374 bugs for tho first quarter of 1801. Certainly an appreciable increase for the American farmer and miller. The Wichita Beacon, tho organ of JKIIUY SIMPSON, has laid down the platform on which its principal stands —absolute free trade and a Bingle land tux. .JKIIKY has fully corroborated this position in his free trade and HRNKY GKOHOK speeches printed, after deliberate revision, in the Congressional record. There can be no dodg ing of the issue this year. Gorernor MCKLNMSY "gets back' very neatly at the people who have been jeering at the "billion dollar congress." He declares that it was more than that; it was a two'billion dollar congrcsB. For under its enactments wo have increased our foreign trade to two billion dollars a year, u point never before attained m tho history of the American government. After the dazed lJ tariff reformers" huve considered the matter for a while they will admit that the governor's reply is unanswerable.—Boston Journal. JKIIUY SIMPSON recently declared that we do not need a navy, for wc have no incrohant marine to protect. JERKY is so accustomed to guessing that it is not surprising that he went off halfcocked on tho merchant marine question. The census bureau has just published the statistics showing the condition oi tho industry of t runs portion by water in the United States iu-alilU branches, -except that of canals, for the year endod December 31, 1880, The transportation fleet of the United States at that time numbered 435,640 steamers.

The Wichita Beacon and JEIIBY SIMPSON now stand upon the same free trade, single tax platform—with this distinction, the editor of the Beacon knows better, but JERKY does not. The Beacon wants the custom house abolished and all taxes levied on land. To make the case plain the Beacon, who owns probably 9°JS,000 worth of printing machinery, franchises, etc., but not a foot of land, wants to be exempted from taxation, while some one df its farmer readers who has 100 acres of land shall bear the burden of taxation for both of thera. It wants the farmer who has a ten-acre hog lot, worth $100, to pay ten times as much tax as the big packing house, worth 8100,000, but occupying but one acre of grouud. Under the Beacon's I proposed scheme a section of Kansas farm land would be taxed more than fifty-two times us much us a mile of railroad passing through that land, although the mile of railway might be capitalized at ten times what the entire section was worth. A nice way of helping the farmer is this little plan of JERRY SIMPSON'S, by abolishing the system undor which he pays only a part of the taxes und substituting one under which he must pay practically all the taxes, for by their own avowal the improvements on laud Bhould cut no figure on the assessment rolls, and to be consistent they must measure farm lands und town lots by the same unit, It is unnecessary to point out further the inconsistencies of the single tax philosophy. It was fully discus'icd a century ago and discarded by the intelligence of the times. After lying buried under the common sense of a hundred years, it has been dragged forth by HBNIIY GKOROK, repainted and veneered, and given to the world as something new. The demagogical plagarist has succeeded in hoodwinking a few JKRRY SIMPSONS, but the musses of the American people are far from an endorsement of an • infamous scheme of dishonesty which would exc einpt capital from tuxatiou and saddle the burdenB of the government on the tillers of the soil. We desire, however, to thank the Wichita Beacon for making so plain the position of its candidate for congress on the question of taxation. The people Will now know where he stands and will deal with him accordingly, Han. J. W. JONES and Senator Loxo spoke at Great Bend Friday evening to quite a crowy of people, and when they were through talking the entire audi ence felt that whichever should be nominated for congress by the Republicans an excellent man would be placed in the field. It is a pleasure to know- that the Seventh district possesses such talented men. to honor whom it is pleasure. No mistake will be made in the selection of either the above as our candidate.—Hoisington Dispatch. Hutchinson is determined to be the "Convention City of Kansas.'' The wide-awake citizens realize the superior railroad facilities of their city,-ami have already commenced the erection of a vast Auditorium, which, when completed, will accommodate the larg est of gatherings.—St. John News. NO USE FOR GAUCERS. Changes lu the Internal Bevenue Methods »» Applied to Distilled Liquors. CHICAGO, May 2.—The gaugers in the internal revenue service of tho entire country will find their occupatioa gone to-day. The old method of gauging distilled spirits in order to ascertain the taxable quantity in each barrel come to an end on Saturday evening, and the new system of weighing went into effect this morning. Some time ago the internal revenue department decided to adopt the weighing system, and since then each district has been supplied with a number of portable scales which will be used in lieu of rods. The empty barrels will first be weighed, and after they arc filled they will be weighed again. Then the weight of spirits will be reduced to gallons and taxed accordingly. The new system will necessitate less labor and insure greater accuracy. From the time that a tax was first imposed oh whisky, gauging has been the only means of ascertainin the taxable quantity of spirits manufactured. It was not an infallable method, however. Fractions of a gallon in a barrel were exempt from taxation. Naturally enough the whisky men took advantage of this, and their barrels were so manufactured that each one contained a certain number of gallons and a fraction. By this method they were enabled to save half a million dollars every year. The whisky trust people were greatly • opposed to the present innovation, but they protested against it in vain. To lniure Sucsesi, The. Big Seventh district Is to-da, holding a convention at-Kinsley for tho nomination of delegates to the Republican convention at Minneapolis, In a purtisau sense it is an important convention. The delegates should see to It that none but men of undoubted ttupubllcanhMU. who are competent to take the field us iustructovs ; should be WHAT HUTCHINSON MAY BRING FC^TH Tho Cowing Convention Will Ho Full of( Interest for thu Cnndlilntes* Topeka Special to Kansas City Journal. The Hutchinson convention will be the big political event of the coming week. Although the importance of the actual work of this, convention is very slight, and although, save in the nomination of a congressman-at-largc, the duties of the delegates are merely formal, yet as a shadow of coming events cast before, the convention will be a great index. The various candidates for the gubernatorial nomination expect to get their first point of view of the situation at Hutchinson. l''or instance, take Ottawa county—Mr Riddle's county; Ask a delegate who he favors for congressman-at-large: his answer is, "A. P. Riddle for governor.' Ask a Brown county delegate whom In is for ttB a presidential elector; it i sure to be Morrill for governor. Ask a Smith man his choice as delegate to Minneapolis. He will tell you it is Smith for governor. Murdoch men and Wright men and Barker men occupy similar positions and at Hutchinson these men will go in to gliin Btreugth. The candidates for congressmen-at large are Hon. Ed. P. Greer, of Winfield; S. B. Bradford of Topeka, ex-tu- torney general; George T. Anthony and Gen. J. C. Caldwell, secretary of the state board of pardonB. It Is certainly doing the others of these candi dates no Injustice to say that at the start it is likely that the race will b. between Mr. Geer and Mr. Anthany. That it will change early in the balloting is of course very likely. Mr. Grccr and Mr. Anthony have been making thorough campaigns and have person ally visited half the counties in the state in their individual interests. M Anthony has the strength of a wide ;\c quaintance; Mr. Greer has the advantage of having a small circle of enemies. Tho one is known everywhere-/ the other has many close friends. The candidacy of Gen. Caldwell is til most entirely in the hands of his friends. His name is to be presented to the convention by Col. Bob Stevenson of Iola. Col. Bob is a Funston co hort and is a tower of strength in th Second distrlet. He introduced Caldwell around at the Lawrence conven tlon lust week,und the general's speech before thojt body was a particularly impressive one. It made friends for him. The Gen. Bradford candidacy operated from Topeka. The general makes short and effective invasions into the Greer territory and into the An thony territory, and comes breathlessly back with a buiich of delegates under his coat almost every time,: II has more delegates on his paper than the book can account for, and wears knowing look which indicates that he has many more buried which he can dig up when the time comes. But it said that Ed. Greer knows the path to the pucth where they are buired. Of course everyone knew that Ingalls would not be a candidate for con- gressman-at-lurge. D. R. Anthony was drugging him into a family row with George T., and making him a co respondent in the ancient, though hardly honorable Anthony vsi Anthony divorce litigation. But Ingalls' frlouds will u»k that he be sent to the Minneapolis convention, with the view OUR FIRST SHOT FOR MAY. We start our SPECIAL SALES for this month with a sensational offering.
