From these credentials the Republican state central committee will prepare a roster of those entitled to participate in the preliminary organization of the convention.

Wlnans for superintendent of public Instruction In the election of 1H00, under which rule delegates are apportioned to the several coun lies as follows: i|Llnn 10 Salt Rates. The Interstate Commerce Commission last Monday rendered a decision In the cases brought by the Anthony Salt company and other Kansas salt manufacturers against the Union Pa-, eiflc, the Missouri Pacific, the Rock Is-' land, the Santa Fe, the St. Louis and San Francisco, the Chicago, Santa Fe and California, and the tiulf, Colorado und Santa Fe companies, on complaints relative to unreasonable and discriminating rates on salt from the Kansas fields to various points in favor of the salt fields of Michigan, The Commission holds that any ndvnntage which inures to the Michigan salt manufacturers from the rates to points in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska are advantages arising from natural situations, nnd that the low rates to Missouri river points are influenced by conditions which are beyond the defendants' control, and which existed before Kansas salt plants were discovered, and as to these rates the complaints are dismissed without prejudice. The full text of the decision may throw some light upon the above remarkable declarations, and we shall await with some interest a definition of what constitutes "natural advantages" in the matter of railway rates. Without awaiting any further views from the commission, however, we fed justified in expressing some surprise at learning that the low rates from Michigan to Missouri river points are beyond the. control of the railways making them, and that they "existed before the Kansas salt plants were discovered." liefore the manufacture of salt was begun in Hutchinson, Michigan salt sold in this market at prices vailing from S '3.50 to $4 per barrel. Shortly after our plants were put into operation Michigan salt dropped to SI.50 and S1.2f>. This, it was alleged, was due to a reduction of rates from the Michigan fields. If the rate to Missouri rivet- points was previously as low as it is now, then the local rates from those points to Kansas points must have been little short of bare-faced robbery. In spite the declaration of the commis sion we are constrained to believe that the competition from Kansas has hud much to do with the rates on salt from Michigan. work." Mr. ATKINSON'S argument involves the assumption that the Welsh tin-plate maker consumes Americun provisions exclusively, while the same workman brought to America, would depend upon American food only in part. The direct reverse is the case, and therein lies the fact that not only destroys the potency of Mr. ATKINSON'S suggestions as a free trade argument, but goes further and makes it a strong plea for protection. The English laborer consumes only 34.43 worth of American agricultural products, while the same person transferred to America would consume 8S10 worth.

J. 1IDCIMH, JOHN H. SMITH, Chairman. Secretary. Mohamet and the Mountain. CI.KVKI.ANI> is greater than his party —in Wisconsin. His party hns been clamoring for the free and unlimited coinage of silver, but CSuovEit CI.UVK I,AND is a "gold bug" and Wisconsin Democrats are not so expert in strad- ling as their Kansas brethren. Therefore, rather than surrender GitovKit as a candidate, they have surrendered free silver. The action of Wisconsin Democracy will probably be followed by the Democrats of other states who meet later. The contest between Mohamet und the mountain has been an interesting one. At no time has it been safe to give odds that the prophet would go to the mountain, or the mountain to the prophet. It has been quite evident that the two were trying to get together, but it has been a matter of serious doubt as to which would overcome the innocuous desuetude of inertia and gravitate toward the other. The strain has at times been of the most intense character. Tliore was discernible at one time all the premonitory signs that the prophet was about to get a move on himself, but at the critical moment the purty realensed >ts hold to spit on ts hutids and (litovnit settled back into his old position. Itlooked for a time as if the diplomatic relations between the ex-president and his purty would be severed on account of a manifest disagreement on the silver question, but the modus vivendl of Democratic inconsistency has been renewed, and so far its the Wisconsin contingent is concerned, the goose honks high. Tlic Sit tint ion in Simpson'* Dlntrlot. From the Topeka Capital. Reports from all parts of the "Hig Seventh" indicate a condition of harmony and good feeling between the candidates for the Republican nomination against the sockless prodigy that promise the best results in November. The contest for the nomination lies between Senator Chester I. Long of Simpson's town and .1. W. Joncsof Hutchinson. Mr. Jones is the older, and in some particulars, the better equipped of the two men. If sent to congress he would leap into prominence as a debater on the tariff as promptly as young Mr. liryan of Nebraska who, though serving his first session, is recognized as second only to Springer on the Democratic side. Mr. .tones is perhaps as well posted on the tariff as any other man in Kansas. He is in all respects fitted for congressional service, nnd if nominated" and elected would do as much as any one man can do to recover the reputation in congress which Kansas enjoyed up to two years ago. Senator Long enjoys the respect and admiration of all who know him. Like Mr. Jones he is a man of irreproachable life and has the faculty in a high degree of making friends. He isyottug able, and full of energy. He has the capacity of making a great congress man. Keep him fifteen years in congress and he would- still be a young man with many years of activity before him. This is a consideration which too rarely receives the attention it deserves. A peculiar advantage enjoyed by Long is that he lives in Jerry Simpson's town and has been pitted against him in local politics for six years, knows intimately the character and record of the man to be beaten and is able to make the kind of a campaign best calculated to win against him. He can put Jerry on the defensive. We understand that Mr. Jones and Mr. Long are making a canvass for the nomination which is highly creditable to both of them. Both candidates have only the most complimentaty things to say of each other, and whichever may be nominated the other promises to take off his coat and'make a rattling campaign. With the contest :iOY the nomination narrowed down between two such men and the Kopublier .Yis of the district united and enthusiastic this is likely to be the last term in congress for Jerry Simpson. CZ3 Soma of the CliuructorUtlcs of tho Senior Nenntor from Illinois. A Washington gentleman, who is an admirer of the senior seuutor from Illinois, writes of him as follows: Mr. Cullom is somewhat noted for his resemblance to Abraham Lincoln. He has tho same type of face, the same lank, thin body and tho same characteristics. Like Lincoln, ho is fond of telling stories, and, like Lincoln, he has a thousand quaint phrases nnd illustrations on his tongue's end. He is like Lincoln, too, in his simplicity, his hatred of sham and pretense, his sincere patriotism and inability to bear malice. It was a weakness with Lincoln that he could not hold a grudge against any one. He was too quick to forgive his enemies and take them in as friends. Cullom is the same. Now and then he gets a saucy letter from some cranky constituent or disappointed politician. Cullom doesn't answer it. He files it away and keeps still. In three months or six, or perhaps a year, the offended man, coming to his senses and finding it impossible to pick u quarrel, writes aud takes back what he hod said before. Then tho senator takes up his pen. "1 didn't answer your letter," he usually says in such cases, "because 1 saw you were excited, and I wanted to givo you a chance to cool off." It is an odd coincidence that Illinois' two candidates for the presidency should live in tho same town, almost within a stone's throw of each other, and that both should have come from Kentucky, as did that greatest son of Illinois, Abraham Lincoln. Both Palmer and Cullom were tho sons of farmers in Kentucky who were attracted to Illinois in tho early days by tho tales of wealth from the prairie region. Both started out barefoot, both were governor of the state, both are in the senate, both hope, to reach the White House. OUR FIRST SHOT FOR MAY.

The St. Louis l'ost-Dispatch indulges in the dangerous pastime of prophecy, as follows: Unless something very unexpected happens Mr. Cleveland will be nominated on the second if not on the llrst ballot. Well, the "very unexpected" happens constantly, especially in American politics. Indeed, it has already happened in ?.tr. Cleveland's case, and it is about as impossible, unless the signs of the times are all adrift for that gentleman to lead his party to victory as for Col. Ingersoll to preach inan orthodox pulpit. The third party has been growing quietly and rapidly of lute. It keeps well under cover, but it seems to be very infectious. Georgia and Alabama are honeycombed by it. North Carolina has more than one hundred thousand voting members. Tennessee runs as high as one hundred and twenty five thousand. Ithnsspread through the northwest like a lire on a dry prairie. That party will vote against Mr. Cleveland to a man. It is almost fiercely hostile to his financial policy. Their ballots cannot be disregarded, as there is no use in going into a tight under n man who hasn't one chance in a hundred of winning. Common sense generally prevails in the choice of a candidate, and it is not difficult to see the folly of naming u leader who hns already shown his inability to lead. BJOBNSON. A Poet In Politics. Bjornsteno Bjornson was long the peoplo'8 poet of Norway, and iu England and America he stood for the very incarnation of Scandinavian genius. He went into active politica, and he is so sav-. ngely denounced that he declares almost with tears that if not vindicated he will leave his native land forever He has brought libel suits against the journals which denounced him as a traitor, and the result is regarded as of great political significance. The radical party now triumphant in Norway advocates universal suffrage, direct taxation and separate foreign representation for tho country—that is. the practical independence of Norway against its co-state Sweden. 13jornson was an active and powerful supporter of this policy, but,when ho went on to advocate that two harbors free of ice on the Norwegian coast be allowed to Russia for trade, he raised a fearful storm both in Norway and Sweden and scarcely less in Denmark and Germany. Be is now practically driven out of a public career. In his early life he was forced from Norway by the clamor over his course na editor of a political journal, and iiflc several years in exile ventured back in 1802. He was born at Quikne, (Jester- dill, Dec. 8, 1832, and despite hi* sixty-one years is still vigorous and active. He has renounced the pension of ijHOO a year allowed him as poet laureate and is, generally speaking, under a cloud. TVlicii tlm Good Illdn't Die Young. "So you still insist that men were more honest in the olden days than now?' "Sure. You see when u man was 1-retty certain of living ISO to 000 years jie could afford to be honest."—Indianapolis Journal, Total.. .1(14 It is recommended that the several counties i n Bald congressional district select their delegates and alternates to said convention ou April .'10, 1802, unless otherwise ordered by the couuty central committee. "lly order of the SevcnU coiiKiesBlonal district central committee. S J. SHAW, Chairman. Sometimes men having a national reputation for profundity make themselves ridiculous by trying to follow some special hobby, no matter where it may lead. One of the most absurd and contradictory arguments in reference to the tariff on tin plate is that advanced by Mr. EDWARD ATKINSON, who says: "A transfer of the art of making tin plates would bring over to this eouutry u few thousand somewhat objectionable people who would become consumers in very small measure of our wheat and of our cotton, while the means of payment of (•rent ltritain would be diminished to the extent of the value of the tin plates which she pays back to us for the products of our farms at the rate of nearly 830,000,000 a year. This 830,000,000 uunually received by (Ireat Britain is now spent by her for our cotton, wheat aud provisions. M we deprive her of the means of payment to that extent the tin-plate makers moved over here would become consumers in a limited measure of the BBUIO articles. These goods require a large amount of capital and but a moderate amount of labor of a rather low grade; hence, we should lose more thun we should guiu, oven if success were attained in establishing this urt, which docs not, how- uver, seem probable.

VYheolcr 'M Order to Khoot Itelknap. There was a strange incident in tlie| room of the house committee on military affairs the other day, when lien. Wheeler of Alabama brought out an old order-book to show Mr. lielkmip of Michigan in which was the copy of the standing order that one Charles Itelk­ nap of the Twenty-first Michigan Infantry be shot if captured. It was the sequel to a war-time story. Mr. llclkuap enlisted at 10. lie doesn't look 30 now, with his straight figure, bright oyes, and inilJrary brown mustache, but in war time he wits as dashing a daredevil us ever lived. One night, just for the fun of it, he mounted his horse and rode boldly through the confederate lines to tho -headquarters of Gen. Wheeler, who was commander of the western confederate cavalry. The tent was empty. Young Delknap threw his Hues to an orderly, strode boldly in, and deliberately pocketed all the dispatches and papers on the table. His very audacity saved him, and not a man Iu all the confederate camp even thought to King of Medicines Scrofulous Humor — A. Cure "Almost Sllraoulous." " Wlion I was 14 years of ago I had a severe attack of rheumatism, and after I recovered haa to go on crutches. A year later, scrofula, in the form of wtalto swellings, appeared on various parts of ray body, and for 11 years k was an Invalid, being conHnod to my bed years. In that time ten or eleven sores appeared aud broke, causing me great pain and suffering. I feared I never should get well. " Early In 18S0 1 went to Chicago to visit t> sister, but was confined to my bed moat ot tha time I was there. In July 1 read a book,' A Day with a Circus,' In which were statements of cures by Ilood's Sarsaparllla. I was so lav- pressed with the success ot this modlolne that 1 decided to try It. To my great gratification the sores soon decreased, and I began to tod better and In a short time 1 was up and oat of doors.
