One of the clamorous demands made by the members of the People's party has been for cheaper money. Hut while they inay'have been fully justified in the deslr j,thc tendency of the policy pursued has been to drive the cheaper money out. of the country, and leave only that attracted here by the promise of high rates of intorest. In England money is worth but per cent., and at one time a considerable amount of it was beinff sent to the United States to be invested in western secur ities. The tendency of this was to re ducc the rates of interest, and while we have no reason to believe it would have gone so low as per cent, it would undoubtedly have gone below the present rates, had not the Alliance movement created distrust ami stopped the How of cheap money to this and other western states. The English in. vestor figures that when he loans money on western land his security is getting better every year, and for that reason he prefers the western to the eastern or middle states. These statements are fully corroborated by the testimony given in th current number of "American Investments," by 11. tli.Asnow, of Hull, En gland, who says: "I am secretary of the Colonial and United States Mort gage company (limited) and also a di rector of the Investment Ouarante Trust company (limited) of my place. Through the Instrumentality of these we have loaned several millions of dollars in western securities. There is no country in the world that can compare with the United States as a field for the investment of capital. The two companies which I represent have placed 87,0(1(1,000 among the people of the west, but with favorable conditions it would be an easy mutter to secure illty times the amount for the development of this great country. The alien law of Texas and the KurmerB' Alliance, of Kansas have seriously shaken the confidence of English investors and many of the companies have withdrawn entirely from Kansas. * * * Wo are afraid of the runners' Alliance, and its operations are being closely watched in England." Thus it will be seen that the Alll- unec movement has not only failed to secure the cheap money sought and needed for the development oi this state, but it has driven out the cheap est money available for these purposes, and left the stu(,e in a wor.'O condition than it was before the move nient was inaugurated. Realizing the mistake that has been made the most sensible thing for our people to do is drop this People's party and its calamity howl, which have done nothing but bring the statu into disrepute and hasten forelosure on every mortgage the moment it becomes due. Nothing else would do so much to restore credit in Kansas securities and make cheap money available us a return to the old time Republican ma joritlcs which uhvavs carried co'nll deuce with them anil started capital this way for safe investment. Every such innovation is jealously looked upon by rival concerns, and the Kansas salt business was no exception; therefore, a light for business began at once, and the contest hus been waging ever since. Freight rates cut a most important figure in the marketing of salt. So much so, in fact, that when the consumer buys his salt the principal part of what he pays for is freight. Of the present freight tariffs on salt the Hutchinson manufacturers complained to the interstate commerce commission, and an adverse decision was rendered, or rather the case was 6\vr m missed without prejudice, which leaves the matter stand practically as it was before. Their complaint was that they objected to paying the sums of the local rates on shipments east, while .Michigan manufacturers were enjoying a through rate to all, points. All salt shipped from Hutchinson east is billed to Kansas City on the local rate, and is then re- billed, taking the local rate from Kansas City to points in Missouri. This gives the Michigan men an unreasonable advantage, and widens their market and lessens the Kansas men's market. It is upon its face such a glaring injustice and obvious discrimination that it should have been remedied at once by the proper power. That the Kansas salt manufacturers are discriminated against and that the Michigan manufactures are favored will appear from the following table: 000,000 pounds of bread, which forms the chief subsistence of the lower classes. This would supply fifty millions of people in Germany with sixty-five and one-half pounds apiece, or enough to last a family of eight persons for six or seven weeks. Dr. JIODK estimates the loss of money at no less than 8100,000,000. The men employed in this Industry constitute one-fourteenth of the productive industry of the country. Thus it will be seen that the number of persons finding employment in the production of liquors is not commensurate with the lossco Incident thereto. By no system of figuring can it be made to appear that the liquor business is in any of its branches an economical one. It entails an extravagant waste of material without a com. pensatory return. The moral features are even more deplorable. we find a broitd tornado telt from central Mississippi to North Carolina. Lieutenant John - P. Finley, of the United States army, has compiled the results of observations for two centuries and presented a map of storms which is in the highest degree suggestive.

One term of Sockless SIMPSON seems to have satisfied the more intelligent portion of the Democracy of tho Seventh district. The Dodge City Democrat, a paper of considerable inflence in the western part of the district, says: "The Democrats of the Seventh congressional district, will see that a straight- out Democrat is run this fall, and none is more worthy of that honor than ltro. Cnouvii of the Times. The Democrats of the Seventh district will see that they are not again sold out by the Sedgwick county contingent." Political Pointer*. As an additional attraction to our Bargain Glove Sale We place on sale The above table comprises only Kansas townB, and the rates are from Chicago, not from the point where the salt is manufactured as is the case with Hutchinson. When the matter is con sidered from the points of manufacture it looks worse, still; as, for instance From East Saginaw, Mich., to Junction City, the distance is 1,042 miles, the rate is 25 cents, or 4.02 mills per ton per mile, while the distance from Hutchinson to Junction City is 108 miles, rate, cents, or 13.80 milli per ton per mile. The Kansas salt industry could be built up to enormous proportions under fair treatment, but under present discrimination it is languishing. The shipments from Hutchinson have decreased 30 per cent, during the last six months from those of tho corresponding six months of last year. It is a cherished industry of this section of Kansas and one in which the people have a well grounded hope. It will ask that it be protected at least by fair treatment. Discrimination in Salt Freight Rates. The bright and aggressive businessmen of Kansas are over and anon bringing up new problems, the solution of which involves the business interests of tho people of other states. The suit industry of Hutchinson is one of tho problems that is attracting widespread attention at tho present time. Salt of the very purest having been discovered in this region a few years since.iu quantities inexhaustible: WHS quickly placed upon tho market in the most salable condition for domestic nnd general purposes. That tho production of it only depended upon the market nitordotl was quickly observed. It being a necessity and an it«im of expense in every family and particularly so to the agricultural and live stock men, its discovery was heralded with great joy. Tho volume of business created by tho Kansas salt men came as an innovation to the established commercial affairs of tho whole western uud central portion of the United States. Visiting the Great West. A considerable number of eastern newspaper men are passing through Kansas to-day, en route to the Pacific coast, where they will attend the coming session of the National Editorial association. Many of these men will have seen Kansas to-day for tho first time, although they may have been for years talking about it, writing about it, praising it, condemning it, congratulating its people, commlssurating with them, advising them, praising their virtues or laughing at their foibles. These people will have seen state that has been developed west of Emporia within the last twenty years, and west of this city practically within the past twelve. Kansas is a component of a vast Trans-Mississippi empire that has been redeemed from savagery and brough under the magic touch of civilization within the last quarter of a century, comprising a work greater in magnitude and grander in conception than all that had been accomplished in the new world for three centuries previous. This has not been done by the western people alone. Eastern enterprise and eastern capital in no small degree have engineered and aided in the magnificent work, while the eastern pvess has been aclivo in bringing to the attention of the whole world the rich and promising fields for investment beyond the Missouri.' To-day these tourists are traversing the finest agricultural regions, to-morrow they will pass the greatest grazing plains, and the next day enter the richest mining districts in the new world, und the sights of this and the next few days must prove a revelation to those who were wont to believe the sun sot just west of tho Allegheny mountains; Another new party is proposed, the Columbian. The platform is Grover Cleveland, which we presume is considered large enough to accommodate everybody.—McPhcrson Republican Judge Horton will soon no longer belong to the farming class. Instead of removing from his farm, his farm is being removed from him. The Missouri river SB cutting it away.—State Journal It is announced that John J. Ingalls will leave for Europe after the Minneapolis convention and will not return until September, when he will devote two months to campaign speaking.— State Journal.

How do you farmers like that?—Me- Pherson Republican. Hon. John 3. Ingnllsjwas elected by acclamation a delcgate-at-large from the state of Kansas to the Minneapolis convention. He is the finest presiding officer that ever graced the halls of congress, and the Republicans ot Min ueapolis will make no mistake if they select this distinguished statesman to preside over the deliberations of that convention.—Kansas City Mail. While Senator Peffer's whiskers are tickling the atmosphere of Wnflliing- ton, ex-Senator John J. Ingalls is getting ready to head the Kansas delegation to Minneapolis. This is taken to mean that Sir. Ingalls' hibernation is at an end. Wherefore we may yet see other things than dreams in Kansas become suffused with a bright and shimmering iridescence. — Chicago News. Ex-(lovernor 0. T.

In southeastern Missouri and the neighboring portion of Arkansas, on tho other hand, such storms are very rare, even as low an elevation as that of theOzarks giving great protection. It is much more to the purpose to learn from Lieutenant Finley (and many people hod already learned it by observation) that tornadoes aud hurricanes can generally be foreseen and to a great extent escaped. The key facts are these: They almost invariably travel from south of west to north of east, their track is generally very narrow and they are preceded by signs which any intelligent person can recognize. First there is a dead and Bultry calm, usually with puffs of hot wind as if from a furnace. When this has lasted an hour or so clouds "boiling up like muddy water"' are seen in the southwest; above them the clouds are sometimes gray and sometimes like the smoke from a burning building. In either case tho general appearance is so unusual as to be alarming. It is then time to get into your "storm pit," if you have one, or into the cellar and close into its southwest corner. But generally the open air is best, for if the coming terror is a funnel shaped hurricane it is very rarely more than a few rods wide. If you see that it is coming on like a narrow column of cloud then run to the northwest or southeast. Neve: in any other direction. The "funnel' may always be avoided thus, but in the caso of a tornado the "storm pit" is your refuge. 300 pair $1.75 quality CI First-class—Black Suede, 12 At the unheard of bargain price of $1.00 PER PAIF* All sizes from 5 3-4 to 7 1-4.

The report, subsequently contra dieted, that Secretary Blaine intended to put himself in the hands of Jlul- doon, the wrestler, calls attention t< the fact that very few of the men in public life at Washington give eitl time or thought to bodily exercise.

Side UghtR un the Labor Problem. A little amusement is to be got once in awliile out of the vezed question ol I labor and wages. A New York employer, whose operations are on the northern edge of the city, says that English speaking men seldom apply to him f o: work, aud he believes that ho has neve: received an application from a native American. Italians come to Uim in droves, and they ore, good natured and philosophical when employment is denied them. A dozen or moro came t r him one day with an interpreter. "Tell these men," he said to the interpreter, that I cannot employ any of them.' The interpreter translated the announcement, und none of the men showed any disappointment. One laughed and snid something which the interpreter trans lated. "He says," the interpreter Baid, 'that's all right; he likes to stand around and see your men work, and maybe by nnd by you have u job." Not so cheerful under disappointment was a newly engaged clerk at Belfast, Me. A shopkeeper paid him four dollars for the first week. At the end of tho second week the lad way surprised when he received only three dollars, and he aBked the reason of the cut down. "Why," re- iponded the shopkeeper, "you know more about the business now, and the work must come easier to you."- The clerk, fearing a continued application of that unique theory, resigned. Dr. Wn.HFJ.M BoliK, a German statistician, has been investigating tho imperial returns regarding alcoholic beverages, and works out some interesting conclusions. Ho finds that the production of material converted into beer, wine and spirits in 1889-1)0 occupied about one-fifth of the whole cultivated land of the couutry, und that if the immense field thus devoted to the liquor traffic were utilized for tho production of food there might be raised on it yeurly a quantity of rye sufficient to make 3,272,- Too Much Curiosity. • Berlin gentleman called on his doctor, who showed his patient over the house and pointed out man; articles of bric-a-brac.
