BLOAT FABSKXT of New Yorli, for temporary chairman at Minneapolis, but no man should preside over any great Republican convention who parts his name in the middle The newspapers continue to InlU about a "dark horse" at Minneapolis, and speak of Iti.AiNi:, Ai.OKit, SHKIIMAN, IJJNCOIJI and others—the list of eminent statesmen of the Republican "party being almost endless—but should a "dark horse" show up as victor who wonlrl give more general satisfaction than Governor MCKINI.EV? Kx-Congressmun .Ions A. ANDERSON, United States consul general at Cairo, died at Liverpool, last Wednesday, while en route home. Since taking up his residence at Cairo, about a year ago, his health has been bad, and for three months he had been an Inmate of a hospital, Finding It impossible to hold his post, he decided to return to Kansas, and (fot as far as Liverpool. JOHN A. ANDERSON was in many respects a strong man, and was noted chiefly for his independence of character. When conventions did not suit him he bolted then, and usually carried a big following with him. Ilis congressional career was marked chielly by his persistent opposition to the Union Pacific railroad. All things con sidered he was a good man and an able man. At a meeting of the senatorial committee of the-Thlrty -Blxth senatorial district at Kingman on Monday it was decided tocall a senatorial convention at Hutchinson on July 26. 1H»«. The basis of representation Is one delegate for each voting precinct of Pratt, Reno and Kingman counties. This plan ifljl give to Kingman and Pratt counties the choice of state senator. This of course means that JAUKH KEI.I.Y of this city will be the senatorial nominee of the Thlr- ty-slith senatorial district ot Kansas.—Pratt Republican. Our contemporary is in error as to the busts of representation, which is one delegate for each precinct and one for' each'hundred voteaor major fraction thereof cast for Selfcgtary of State HIOOINS. IVe do not know that this will take the majority away from Kingman and Pratt counties combined, or that Kcno will refuse to join hands with them in the nomination of Mr. KKI.I.Y. Abandoning Free Trade. For fifty yearB England has stood by the "glorious and sacred doctrines of tree trade," only to find in the end that the cold logic of results does not always fulfill tho glittering promises of theory. The English people are begin niug to mistrust the wisdom of its free trade policies in spite of the learned disquisitions of its political economists. No better evidence of this distrust and change of sentiment is needed than is to be found la a speech delivered by Lord SAJ.ISUUIIY at Hastings, last Wednesday. lie was talking to worMiigmcn, and after counseling them to follow the example set them by nations and substitute arbitration for the violent methods which were sometimes adopted for settling labor questions, he said that a grave matter in which the prosperty of the country was involved was the question of free trade. "England," he declared, "only maintains the position which she occupies by the vast industries existing here; but a danger is growing up. Fifty yearB ago everybody believed that free trade had conquered the world and prophesied that every nation would follow the example of England. The results however, are not what had been expected. Despite the prophesies of the free trade advocates, foreign nations are adopting protection. They are excluding us from their markets and are trying to kill our trade. And this state of things appears to grow worse. We live in an age of war tariffs. Another important point is that while nations are negotiating to obtain each other's commercial favor none is anxious about the favor of Grent Britain, because Great Britain has stripped herself of the armor and weapons with which the battle is to be fought. "The attitude we have taken in regarding it as disloyal to the glorious and sacred doctrines of free trade to lev} 1 duties on anybody for the sake of anything we get thereby, may be noble, but ;t is not businesslike. [Cheers]. On these terms you will not get anything. If you intend to hold your own in this conflict of tariffs you must be prepared to refuse nations who injure you access to your markets. 'Wo complain most of the United States, and it so happens that the United States maintains and furnishes us with articles, which are essential to our manufacturers. We can not exclude either without serious injury to ourselves. I am not prepared in order to punish other countries, to inflict dangerous wounds on ourselves. We must confine ourselves to those matters wherein we will not suffer much whether importation continues or diminishes. "While we can not raise the price of food and raw material, there is an enormous mass of imports, such us wine, spirits, silk, gloves and laces, from countries besides the United States which are merely luxuries, and of which a diminished consumption could be risked in order to secure ac- cesB to the markets of our neighbors. I shall expect to be excommunicated for propounding such a doctrine, but I am bound to say that I think the free traders have gone too far." Only those who know how persistently England has clung to the doctrines of free trade can appreciate how much it must have cost the premier of that country to make the declarations set forth above. Yet they are true, and Lord SAl.iaiiintv is deserving of mueh credit for stating the case with clearness and frankness in the face of "ex-communication." SALISIIUIIV has warned England that she must recede from her free trade position and adopt ii policies of protection und reciprocity Much as the English are inclined to bate JIM BI.AINK, the leading man in the United Kingdom tells them the time has come when they must apply JIM BLAINE'S theories to their govern mental affairs. These declarations of Lord SALISBURY take the last prop from under the free traders of the United States. Their whole stock in trade has been a repetition of the doctrines of the English free traders, and now that the failure of free trade in that country is acknowledged, thoughtful people in America will scarcely hesitate in their fealty to protection. of It is a shame that the people of Kan sas are bound, by the constitution the state, to pay the members of the legislature the niggardly sum of S3 per day and it is a disgrace that ninety- nine out of a hundred who are elected are too weak-kneed to attempt to amend this unjust provision. No wonder so many worthless shysters have been elected to the legislature. Men who have business to attend to cannot afford to leave it for the pay. What farmer can leave his business for two months in the spring of the year for such a niggardly sum? Can any man incur the legitimate expenses of an election for the ofllce unless ho intends to steal when" he gets it?—Niekurson Argosy. will do, so they do not need to worry themselves. Nothing like having a Moses. ___________ Many people become infatuated with the melody of a song, and it fastens itself upon them until it becomeB a part of their very being, and the hourly hum and whistle it to the satisfaction of themselves and the disgust of others. Others have a mental make up that grasp nice sounding phrases and sentences'which they repeat with unfaltering lone, modulation anil regularity, until it so rasps upon the listener's ear that it is dubbed a "saw. And there you, have them: some singing "Annie Uooney," some singing "Boom de re," while still another may be heard tickling himself -villi the "saw," "I stand for the free und unlimited coinage of silver whether mined at home or abroad: 'Perhaps tho finest compliment tWat any county in this statu has paid to an aspiring citizen is 'that of Sumner county to Judge JAMES LAWRENCE, their candidate for attorney general. At their county convention they not only allowed him to select his delegation to the state convention, but to name the delegates to the other state and congressional conventions as well. The best evidence that a man would make n strong candidate if nominated, is the fact that he stands well at home and that his neighbors and friends are united in his cordial support.! Every Democratic member of congress has talked about the "wisdom of economy in making appropriations to defray the expenses of the government," and yet the Congressional Record will disclose the fact that every one of them has tried to get heavy appropriations for anything within their respective districts, while they gave hearty support to measures tending to cut down appropriations affecting other districts. And thus the probabilities of largely increased Republican majorities grow stronger day by day. In the telegraphic columns of the NEWS will be found details as to how the accounts of the floods, and the rumors of frosts affected the prices of wheat, corn and other cereals on the Chicago board of trade. If the oft're­ peated "saw" is true that the price of the farmer's grain is fixed in Liverpool and by the board of trade gamblers, why did these rumors make such a flurry and cause a r^e in grain of two t9 five cents per bushel? There is much cor.eern exhibited upon the p-u't of both Democrats and Alliance men as to whether or not their JEHKV will be a candidate for reelection. It is claimed by some of them that tho best policy they can pursue is to fuse on JERRY and then let him go about the east lecturing and not come in the district at all during the campaign. JEHKV is cunning enough to paddle his own boat and will doubtless soon appear upon the scene and tell his admirers what they For Congressman. One month from to-morrow representative Republicans from the counties forming the Seventh congressional district of the state of Kansas will assemble in the city of Kingman for the purpose of selecting a standard bearer for the approaching campaign. Presumably it is the purpose of the delegates then to assemble to select BS a candidate for congressman a man who will carry the most strength for his party, and who, in the event of his election, will be able to do the greatest good for his people in the halls of congress. What the delegates selected to represent Ness county in that convention may think or may do we have no means of knowing, inasmuch as their selection was completely overshadowed by other interests in the county convention. What they should do is the only question The News cares to discuss. From the character of the men chosen we may hope that they will have but one object in view, und that is the selection of a congressional candidate who will not ouly be able to carry his district, but who will at the same time add strength to the party in Ness county. Without intent to disparage the fitness or ability of either oi the other candidates we must say that it is our belief that no one man combines so many of the essential elements necessary to success —who will be as cordially received and as carefully listened to by the great mass of rural voters of the district— as Hon. J. W. Jones of Hutchinson. His record is already made up and .needs no explanations. On the great economic questions of the day he is the peer of any man in Kansas. In connection with the railroad cases, in which he was known as the "farmers' lawyer," he established a reputation for keen insight into the intricate questions connected with that subject that is nowhere surpassed. Before the Dodge City convention two years ago he was acknowledged the peer of any candidate asking for the nomination, lie is a sound, logical speaker, and a deep thinker, and withal a pleasant gentleman, who carries in his face tho impress of honesty and BtraightforwardnesB. His oratory is not of that frothy kind now in vogue among the dude politicians of the day, which goes off like the "fizz" of a soda pop, leaving nothing behind, but leaves in Its wake solid food for thought, to be utilized and considered by the careful and honest voter when he weighs public matters in his own mind and apart from the surroundings of the public assembly where delivered. At other tlmeB as great weight might not be given these matters, important in themselves, but doubly so under the circumstances. An adverse majority in the district makes it necessary that the Republicans put forward the best foot—the strongest man. With tho county almbst wholly in the handB of the opposition, it behooves • the delegates to tho congressional convention to throw their influence, not with some one because he .Is a "good fel low," or "one of the boys," but with that candidate who will command the greatest respect among the musses, and who will poll the greatest vote, simply because ho is worthy of It, and whose Btrength will be an assistance to the party locally as well aB generally. We desire to see a candidate elected to congress from this district, not simply because he is a Republican, but because he will be able to do the district, the state and the nation some good, and we believe that to be successful in the coming campaign the Republicans will have to put up such a candidate. We believe with such a candidate in this district, with a state ticket nominated without the dictation of either the "State House ring" or the "Federal ring," and a county ticket composed of clean, honest and competent men, the star of the Republican party will again be in the ascendency.— Ness County News. Assertion V. Fact. From the Boston Journal. In one of his recent tariff reform essays Mr. Edward Atkinson makes some statements concerning the early history of tariff legislation in the United States, which show that he is as much mistaken in his alleged facts as he is illogical in his arguments. For example, he says: "Hamilton's tariff was limited to a small number of taxed articles; the average ra,to upon dutiable imports was less than 10 per cent. Crude materials were left substantially untaxed. A few minor changes had been made in Hamilton's tariff: down to the embargo which 'preceded the war of 1812." Continuing, he says that after the war of 1812 came the first movement toward duties for the direct promotion of certain specific industries, but the change was resisted in New England, and after considerable discussion, participated in by Webster and Clay, "tho advocates of high tariff had their way, passing ivarious acts, culminating in the tariff of 1842." Now compare these statements with the official figures of the treasury department as given on page 15 of the statistical abstract, fourteenth number. The total imports With duty collected from 1802 to 1801 was as f OIIOWB: Per cent. Year. Imports.

The figures showing the amounts of free and dutiable articles were not reported separately until 1821, when the imports were: Free. Dutiable.

In the same table from which these figures are taken we find that for»18Ul, under the partial operation of the McKinley bill, the amounts of imported merchandise entered for consumption from the warehouses was as follows: Free. Dutiable. Total. 1801 ..$388004404 $400455173 $854510578 The total amount of duty collected was 8210,885,001, being an' average of 40.28 on the dutiable articles and 25.25 on the total imports. Fusion In Kansas: From the Leavenworth Times. Here and there, all over the statei county Alliances have pronounced against fusion. To honest men a fu sion of opposing parties for the purpose of capturing the spoils is repugnant. It is in the nature of a conspiracy, and is always looked upon with contempt even by those who may engage in it. It is quite possible that a majority of the Alliance state convention may favor fusion, and that an arrangement may be made with the Democrats, but enough opposition has developed among Alliance men to show that a large part of them do not like the idea. Such persons will be much more easily led back into the Republican party than if their allegiance to the People's party were not weakened by a distasteful alliance with the Democrats It is quite probable, therefore, that the combined opposition will be less dangerous to Republicans than the People's party alone would be. Wlittt One IIRH Done Others Can Do. As an instance of what a man can do here in Lane county we cite the following: Some three or four years ago a certain man, then living in Dighton and who was supporting his family by days labor, was badly hurt by an accident and in consequence thereof the county was obliged to furnish supplies. When he had recovered sufficiently to work he went out on his homestead and commenced farming. To-day he has in one of the largest crops of wheat in his township and if it turns out as well as it now promises he will be placed «n very comfortable circumstances.—Dighton Herald. Western Kansas. The rains in western Kansas for the last two weeks has given some of the eastern papers a great deal of trouble they are afraid (?) that .there will be nothing raised on account of the wet weather. A few years ago these same papers were making a great ado because it was so dry in western Kansas. Well, tho facts are our eastean friends need not worry about this part of Kansas; we are all right and have plenty of fine land for all those desiring good homes, and plenty can be raised with very little labor.—Syracuse Democratic Principle. ADe-mnmt for Furm lunds. There is quite a good deal of real estate changing hands lately. Tho greater part of the purchases, however, aro being made by our own citizens who are buying the land for farming purposes and not for speculation. The farmers of western Kansas are beginning to realize that land which will pay for itself in two years is good property to hold and they are taking it as fast as possible.—Dighton Herald. 3,000 SHOES. 1 1,500 PAIRS.! 125 Dozen. -10 5-12 Gross.
