SIDLINGER; THE V DRUGGIST Prescriptions a Specialty. No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson. To the candidates: Let it be a fni light, and may the best nrin win. JKKRY SIMPSON rode into congress on the wave of calamity. He will ride out on a bicycle. Judge LKHTKIC makes a most excellent chairman, as was demonstrated at Kinsley yesterday. The delegates at the Kinsley con- Ycntion recogni/.ed the old and the young blood of the party in their se : lection of chairman and secretary. A man would have to stand with his mouth open a long time before a roast ed partridge would lly into It. And so it is in getting office; hence the fellows who want something are rustling with all their energy. The Hutchinson convention this week will select delegates to Minneapolis who will have the honor of casting their ballots for the present as well as the next president of the United States.—Abilene Reflector. To the delegates: (live Kansas Republicans u platform that expresses the conviction of the party in favor of protection to American industry and an honest dollar—a platform that will need no apology before the people. Don't repeat the folly of two years ago. Last Sunday Gapt. ANKON attended church services where the minister preached from the text, "The first .shall be lust," etc., and straightway the Chicago club went out and mopped up thendiamond with the Bostons. A good Bermon will Inspire even a base ball player. lid. 0. LITTLE, of Abilene, will be before the convention to-morrow as candidate for delegate to Minneapolis, lie is president of the Kansas State Loague of. Republican clubs, and to elect him to this position would only be a deserved recognition. It is the •trong thing to do. Editor.!. C. HEMI-IUI.I, of the Charleston News and Courier, while in New York during the pust week, became spbnsor for along article on the negro question, In which he advocated the doctrine that the colored man has no place in the south or the United States, and that every one of them should be transported baok to Africa, which is negro land per se. There were a num bur of distinguished Democratic edi tors from the south in that city during the week, among whom was Capt. EVAN . I'. HOWKI.I, of the Atlanta Constitution, lie was told of Mr. llKMPiin.L'H hold stand in favor of sending all the black race hack to Africa, when he said: "That is the most dangerous thing that could happen to the south. We could not get along without the black people. The Muck man is our laboring man and the blacks of both sexes furnish us with the lower grade of work and service, uiid even many of the higher grades of work, which Italians, Hermans and Irishmen supply at the north. Wo couldn't got along without them, 1 say again." Still another has been added to the list of persons who after a little personal contact have come to the con CIUHIUU that Mr. HI.AINK is not the mental and physical wreck that some Democratic journals pretend to believe he is. The latest victim of misplaced confidence is Mr. JKKF CIIANBLKU of St, Louis, a corporation lawyer of high standing, who lius been in Washington for (several weeks; urging upon con grosBuien the virtues of a bill to per wit a southern state to grant frun chlses for landing one eud of a cable to San Domingo. He caine Into coutact with Secretary IU.AINK on Thursday, wlicn the latter appeared before '.' the senate coiumeice committee in opposition to tliecahlo measure. When some one referred to UI.AINK'S health yesterday Mr. CUANII- I.KH interrupted: "He.was altoj;«ther too well for mu this week, He mude t)i ice urguinunta Cefoi -e the committee in opposition to granting the cable a landing, and he wan as vigorous as I ever saw him. His argument, although lacking in law, Becmed to be convincing to the senators. * * * I must say I think Mr. BLAINE iB not in a dangerous state of health of body or mind." Republicans Welcome. To-morrow the first political state convention held in Kansas this year will convene in the auditorulm building in this city. It is the largest delegate convention ever called together in the state, being comprised of 717 members. The work to be done is exceedingly important for the reason that it is far reaching in its results. There is more in it' than merely the election of six delegates and six alternates to the Minneapolis convention, and the election of three presidential electors. It is another consultation of the Republicans of Kansas, than whom there are none more brainy or enthusiastic. Its influence upon the state convention of .Tune 30 is conceded and it will largely shape the policy of the Republican party in Kansas for this year. The nomination of a candidate for eongressman-at-large • is important from the fact that he will be generally regarded as the head of the ticket when completed. He will be put to a crucial test by his enemies and weighed in the balance before the bar of public opinion. The party may congratulate itself upon having such an admirable list of ^trongmen from which to mako a selection. Uy reason of its importance the convention is uot only largely attended by delegates and alternates, but by the rank and flle of the party also, many of whom are now here. It may he that the capacity of Hutchinson for entertainment will be thoroughly tested, but everything is for our visitors to use as they may see fit. The latch- strmg is out at the private residences for the overflow of the hotels. The people of Hutchinson welcome all as neighbors and Republicans, and wish them a pleasant and profitable time, and that when the convention adjourns it will adjourn to meet here again upon the call of the chairman. Harrison's Chances. Although there is here and there a little incipient opposition to the nomination of President HAMIUBO.V, as the the time for the Minneapolis convention approaches it becomes more and more apparent that he will be the nominee, if indeed he is not made so unanimously. His friends, who have been watching the conventions to select delegates claim that he will have a majority on the first ballot. This is a year for Republican harmony, and if it becomes up parent that President HARBISON is to be nominated, it is not at all probable that any other names will be submitted to the convention. The total number of delegates in the convention' will be 8HK, makiug 4411 necessary to a choice. The states which have instructed delegates as a body to vote for the re nomination of President IJAIIWHON will send to the Minneapolis convention 154 delegates, as follows: Florida, 8; North Carolina, South Carolina, 18 Georgia, 26; Iudiana, 30; Missouri, 34; Nebraska, Hi. In the states which have failed to instruct the delegates- at-largo to vote for reuominution are some delegates who have voluntarily indicated their determination to vote for President HARRISON. ' Ho that HARRISON'S friends figure that he has 225 delegates up to the present time. In the current week Republicans will hold state conventions in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia, and later in some other states and territories, in which the dates of the convention have not yet been fixed. The states named will select 102 delegates, and it is estimated that out of this number sixty will be instructed iu state conventions to vote for the renoraiua- tion of President HARRISON, and at least fifteen more will cither receive instructions through their districts, or will, upon their own motion, announce lu favor of. renoininatlou, making in all seventy-five delegates in sight. Adding these to the 225 mentioned above gives a total of 300 positive votes for HARRISON, without counting anything ifroui tho big states of New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. II AR- IUSON'S friends claim at least twenty- three votes in Now York, eighteen in Pennsylvania and twenty In, Ohio, while it is not beyond the rango of possibilities that enough votes may ho secured In those tihreo states to definitely settle the-entiro question, and secure a nomination by acclamation^'; Whatever opposition' there may bo to President IIAM(iBo,s is among a few would-be political bosses; but the day of bossism is well-nigh over In tho Republican party, tho leaders having learned that a disregard of the will of of the rank and flic leads to defeat at the polls; The people realize that President HARRISON haB given us an admirable administration, and are willing to trust hi in for four years more. The idea of thiB convention indicating its choice for member of the National Republican committee is being agitated. It is urged that this is a year when Kansas must stand clqse to that committee, and he should be a man whom the Republicans know to be a worker, and a man of tact and influence. It will be objected to on the ground that it is against precedent, but the party this year will try to get away from some .precedents established during the'last few years. It is a suggestion that will carry much weight. There is _ considerable dlscnssion among delegates as to whether resolutions of in instruction to the delegates to the national convention shall he passed. If the convention instructs it It had better just employ a phonograph. It could do the work of the delegation as well, as for instance: When the state of Kansas is called at Minneapolis, let secretary take the result from the phonograph. This would bo a cheap and serviceable method under the instruction idea. Hon. L. A. ltiGUKH of this city, is a candidate for delegate to Minneapolis, and is making muny friends among the delegates. He has been a resident of this valley the past twenty years and during that time has never asked for any recognition from the Republican party. He is meeting many old acquaintances with whom he has always had a substantial standing.. The lot crntUUmal Silver Conference. From the New York Press. Special dispatches to The Press from Washington show the firm stand that President Harrison is taking in reference to the holding of an international silver conference. The Press in printing the first accurate information of the proposed conference referred to the fact that similar conferences had failed .because no mutual agreement had been obtained among the conferred* and no methods had been prescribed by which the various governments participating should submit an agreement, if arrived at, for adoption. As the leading silver prddtscing nation of the world the United States is entitled to have great influence in dictating the policy and the plan on which any silver conference between the leading nations shall take place. It 'is President Harrison's purpose and the purpose of Secretary. Foster, who inaugurated the present.move- ment for an international conference, that no participation in such a meeting shall be recommended for the United States to congress unless the European countries enter into an agreement as to the methods by which ratification of any report which the eonf errees may agree upon shall be submitted for adoption by the several nations. The lines upon which it is proposed to carry on the work of the conference should make it possible to reach a conclusion that will settle the status of silver and its ratio to gold fbr years to come. The president is wise in insisting that no conference shall be participated in by the United States unless there is a fair prospect that its conclusions will ho made law by the various countries which enter into it. The American Systum Is the English. From a Speech by Senator Joseph R. Hawley. Great Britain, which preaches so much to us of free trade, gets 0.1 per cent, of raw materials from outside. We get 03 per cent of ours from inside. The mere statement of that indubitable fact settles the whole argument in my mind. To liiivu u »w Clonic.

THE NEW MINISTER TO JAPAN. U« Is u Ciillriirulan mid go Wu Illu Chief Competitor. President Harrison's appointment of Frank L. Coombs as minister to Japan to succeed the lute John P. Swift is believed by close observers to be a conies sion to the apparently valid claim that tho people of the Puciiic coast are more iu touch with tho affairs of Cliina and Japan than aro the residents of the eastern states. The new minister is a representative of the younger school of politicians. Ho was bora thirty-eight years ago in Napa, California, and has always mailo that place his home. Napu, by tho way, is also the home of the Hon. M. M. Estco. He was educated in the public schools, and his record an a pupil was highly creditable. Long before most boys begin to think of their future career, young Coombs had decidod. that he would ho it lawyer. As a uaoaus to that ond ho went to New York and entered tho law department of Columbia college, whence ho was graduated with honor in duo season. Ho immediately liegan to 'practice in Napa, and displayed much ability. When only -twenty- five years' qf age lie was elected to the otllco of district attorney, and upon the expiration of his term was chosen to succeed himself. Finding that official duties wore seriously interfering with his • practice he temporarily retired from public life. But his neighbors wanted his services, and so in 1880 they sent him to tho legislature. He was returned in 1888 and again in 1890, in which latter year he was chosen speaker. ThiB was tho celebrated "legislature of a thousand scandals," from FRANK L. COOMBS. which many emerged with reputations bedraggled in the dnst of jobbery. But there was no imputation made against Mr. Coombs' personal integrity. Iu 1890 he was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. Ho has acquired a competency, and, like many men comfortably provided with the good things of this world, has a hobby. He loves horses, and owns soveral speedy ones which have made records on the state trackB. Ho also holds important positions in several racing associations. Mr. Coombs is a member of the Native Sons of the Golden West, and is at present a grand trustee of tho order. Beforo his appointment was actually announced it was believed by a great many persons that another of California's sons, Major George H. Bonohrske, would bo selected by President Harrison for the post of minister to Japan. Major Bonebrake, who is now a resident of Los Angeles, is an -Ohio man, having been bom in Eaton, Preble county, that state, about fifty-four years ago. Since 1878 he has been active in Republican politics oh the Pacific coast. He is a scholar as well as a financier, and after leaving college in Ohio ho taught languages in an educational institution. Ho is a thorough master of Latin, Greek, German and French. When he ceased to be a pedagogue he studied law under General Thomas Brown, with whom he afterward formed a copartnership. He went into the army in 1862 as a private in Company C, Sixty-ninth Indiana infantry, rising by degrees until MAJOR MONEBRAKE. he had attained the rank of major, and was finally brcvetted lieutenant colonel. In 1809 he had his first banking experience as a cashier in a Noblesvillo (Ind.) hank. Now he IB president of the Los Angeles National hank, and is a director of seven other southern California banks and of rho California Central railroad. Fine buildings in Los Angeles are monuments to his enterprise, and he is known in all California as a shrewd business man. Out of Itcpalr.
