FONTHON. at homo the next time. The trouble with SIMPSON is that he has too much bralriH to be successful UK a clown and too little to be useful an a statesman. —New York Press. Mr. Simpson's Candidacy. It IK with a sense of pentilne regret that the NKWS learns that there is a possibility that the Hon. .TKKKMIAII SlMi'SON will iiot lie a candidate for congress in the coming campaign. We have carefully watched the develop­ ment of Mr. SIMPSON as a statesman, and collected some important facts which we are constrained to believe will contribute somewhat to a better understanding of the doctrines of political and national economy disseminated by him. Of course a removal from the race of the avowed champion of these new theories would detract much from the general interest in their discussion. To a reporter for the Washington Post, Mr. SIMPSON, discussing his course in the next campaign, recently said: "I am considering the matter, und the probability is that I will not be a candidate for' the renomination, although I could be nominated and elected easily. 1 came here in tjio first place without seeking the office, and in congress I have endeavored to do what I could to advance the interests of my party. 1 have written my friends that 1 think 1 can do more pood by lecturing und stumping other territory, and although that would be a sacrifice, 1 am Inclined to think that my work would lie more effective eon- ducted in that manner. My decision is not final and will not be until I consult my friends at our coining state convention." We cannot bring ourselves to believe that the exigencies of the occasion demand that Mr. SIMPSON make the cruel sacrifice he suggests, even at the price of a wider dissemination of the new gospel of free trade and land taxation as laid down by HK.NKV OEOHOK. Wc believe the first duty of a patriot is to his own household, therefore if Mr. SIMPSON has any missionary work to perform it should be done in his own district. If he has any speeches to make, let them be made here, where the people understand him and know what measure of value to place upon what he says. This is his proper field. He has no business to go traipsing offl into other territory, when there are so many thousand voters in the Big Seventh who radically disagree witli him as to the justice and wisdom of saddling all the taxes upon the land of the farmer. This Is one of thelarg-1 est districts in the United States and has more acres of land to be taxed under the new scheme than any other, and for that reason, it for no other, the people should have the greatest possi-1 ble amount of light shed upon the new ' doctrine. Besides, Mr. SIMPSON is the logical candidate of Ms ptirty. He has no right to pull out of the harness at! this critical moment to mount other stumps there to defame Kansas before people who do not know the facts and perchance may believe he speaks the truth. Under the circumstances nothing but failing health should be allowed to interfere with Mr. SIMPRON'H candidacy, and so far as we bave been able to learn be has been enjoying good health. By a judicious course of outdoor exercise he has suceessfuly warded off any physical break down that might naturally be expected to follow excessive mental labors. By his own avowal be can be "nominated and elected easily.'" No other man in the People's party can. Therefore, Mr. SIMPSON should readily sec the folly of laying off the armor at this moment. We hope Mr. SIMPSON'S friends to whom he may write will lay all these facts before him and insist that he consent to be a candidate. We hope they will do this, if for no other reason, as a favor to the Republicans >of.the Seventh district. such'.' There is no economy in shipping cotton to England to bftmBnufactured. Why not manufacture the product in the United States and export goodsin- stead of raw material'.' The additional factories will make a demand at home for our surplus agricultural products, and then we may expect an adjustment between the farm and factory upon an equitable basis. The interests of the two will be mutual and reciprocal. Encouragement and protection of the one is incidental encouragement and protection to the other. The The United States is on the right track, if the good sense which has formulated and inaugurated our protective policies be allowed to control it in the future as It has in the past. Views of a Kansas Legislator. lion. ViKoitK IJ. DOUOLAHS of Wichita, one of the brightest and best members the Kansas legislature litis bad during the past four years, was overtaken Inst Saturday by a Beacon reporter, who asked him the following rjuestion: "What do you think of this railroad question?" Mr. DoiiOi.Agfl said: "The time has come for Kansas people to demand, in unmistakable language, justice at the hands of the railroad corporations. It is time to crush out, once and for all, the idea that railroad companies deriving their corporate existence from Kansas lows aud their financial existence from Kansas people can be longer used to drain the last dollar from the merchants and people of Kansas in order to enrich the merchants and people of Missouri and other states. "The outrageous discrimination in the sugar rate is only a sample. A railroad company which regularly carries freight from the titilf of Mexico, through Kansas and bjto Missouri, at a certain price, and ns regularly charges just double that price for dropping a car load of the same kind of freight at Wichita, Hutchinson and other points on its line in Kansas, is doing either one of two things. It is either carrying freight for Missouri people at a loss and recouping that loss by overcharging the people of Kansas; or, if the charge to the Missouri man is a fair one, then it is levying extortionate charges upon the Kansas man. In either event it is an imposition which no high-spirited people can or will much longer tolerate. "A Kansas corporation which so misuses the franchise conferred upon it by the people, need no longer rely upon popular conservatism as its bulwark of safety. The railroad officials had better put their ears to the ground, learn what people are talking and thinking about, and then change their course without any more delay, for I tell you this kind of business is going to stop if it takes a revolution to stop it. And, in this connection, the companies should remember that revolutions, when fairly started, make no fine distinctions. "I believe a railroad company ought to just as fairly treated as the humblest citizen; that is'to say, it is entitled to exact justice, But the people of Kansas are entitled to the same kind of justice arid they propose to have it. r "I'believe the Republican convention this year will have something to say on this subject that will penetrate even the stuffed ears of the railway boses, from the great lakes to the Pacific ocean. When there is anything of importance to be clone in. this country, it is the Republican party which does it; and the Republican party is going to settle this railway question in Kansas." rou COUNTY ATTOHNBV. hereby submit my name to the Republi ;ia of Keno comity for a renomination to sofllce of county attorney, subject to the Jslou of the Republican convention. ' Z. L. WiaB. tan&as advises uro to the effect thajt (By SIMPPON will be ejected to stay The Helplessness of Free Trade. The utter helplessness, and we might say hopelessness, of freelrado in a contest with protection, was fully set forth by Lord SAMBHUHY in his speech at Hasting* to the workingmen. As SAMSBUBY says, England has cast off the very weapons with which the battle must be fought, which means that the full foroe and power of reciprocity made possible by protection, is dawning upon tue English mind. While the other nations of the earth are making and receiving concessions whereby their trade may be advantageously extended, England Bee* her foreign market gradually growing less, and is powerless to prevent ii. England has nothing on which to trade. Yet England finds herself in this position not through any spirit of generosity I or philanthropy she lias displayed in the past. Englund has not consulted the interests or desires of other nations in the formulation of her trade policies. She has been dominated alone by a spirit of self-interest. While she complains most against the "'nitcd States she is absolutely powerless to retaliate without injuring herself more than us. SAI.ISHUIIV has furnished an answer to those who proclaim the doctrine that we cannot hope to sell to England unless we buy of her. England wants our grain and our •otton, even if she does not sell us a dollar's worth of goods in return. While there is no reason to fear the loss of England as a customer of our surplus provisions and raw material, why should we Beck to retain her as TI1K KANSAS PRESS. Hutchinson looms up as a convention town, owing, of course, to the fact that she has several first-class hotels, and the best hall'in the state.—Pratt Coun ty Times. Down in the flooded district on the Kaw bottoms one lonely sign managed to keep above the water which read: '•These lots for sale cheap." ItB sole companion was another more modest in appearance but more emphatic in words: "Keep off the grass."—Argentine Eagle. Since the Hutchinson convention the fellow with the long string of fluures showing just the number of votes each candidate for governor would have on tie first ballot, and the number of bal lots required to nominate his favorite lias been so still that the butterfly's ilaplot can be heard across a township. —Pratt county Times. Hon. J. W. .lonesof Hutchinson, can. didatefor nomination for congress before the Republican convention, will be in Dodge City, Thursday the 2«th inst., and will speak on the issues of the day. Mr. Jones is reputed to be a clear and able speaker and if nominated is able to meet any opponent that may be put up against him in the Sev enth district.—Tiines-Knsign. Should George T. Anthony resign his place on the state board of railway commissioners we know of no better man for the position than Hon. .1. W. .Tones of Hutchinson. Mr. Jones has made » tharough study of the transportation problem and kindred subjects to such a degree that he is undoubtedly the best equipped for the position, in the west. The gentleman is, however, a candidate for congress in the Seventh district with an excel lent chance of receiving the nomination, which would seem to put him out of the question for the present at least. — Pratt County Times. The people of Kansas are getting tired of the calamity howl. They BCC wherein they have been mislead, They see the ill repute brought upon the state by the false statesmcnts of such men as Peft'er and Simpson. They see the irreparable damage done by the distorted facts published in the columns of the Alliance organs. And last but not least, they see a long list of violated promises that their officers made them before election. In fact, the wholo matter is now plainly seen and the people of KanBas are too intelligent to continue in the path that leads to their own destruction. At the ballot box they will rectify their former errors.—Kiowa Banner. vis that the republic of Brazil will send a special commissioner to Chicago to arrange the preliminaries for its exhibit at the world's fair. This special commissioner will, it is expected, be in Chicago within two or three weeks. Brazil applies for nearly 00,000 square feet of space divided among the department buildings of the exposition, this beiug aside • from the space that country takes for the erection of the pavillion for official headquarters. The Brazilian commission at home is actively developing an exhibit from that country, among the leading features of which will be groups of chln- chona, coffee trees In bearing, eocki- neal cactus, mammoth palms, ferns, bamboos, etc., and models of fruit. AN EXCURSION OF ONE I Ovr.r the Snntn Pe mid Hnlolilnson and Southern ItutlrotulK. Prom the Lakin Index. One of the best things to take at this season of the year, is what is fashionably termed an "outing." Editors and railroad people call it an excursion, but common every-day folks speak of it as atrip. "A rose by any other name would smell ns sweet," and So it is with nn occasion of this kind, and call it by whatever name you plenBe, the pleasure is not destroyed nor the mem ory of the enjoyment, effaced. We took one ourselves, \nsi week, and in addition to the pleasant, invigorating effects, we are free to say that the results were more than we anticipated— it has given us means of information that will prove gratifying both to our home and distant readers. 11 gave us an opportunity to see a goodly portion of Kansas—from the west end of the state to the great salt center, and from the center to the south line of the big Sunilower state. The entire trip could be condensed into one sentence, by saying that pros- petity stands out prominently from every nook and corner, and--.a kind Providence has given assurance di another bountiful season, to put to flight the calamity howl of the soclcless statesman and give the Alliance farmer time to gather up his scattered senses and kick himself with joy as he beholds the "way out" of his plutocratic environments. A big wheat crop seems to be inevitable and it would be sacrilege to qualify it with any misgivings. Over the Santa Fe to Hutchinson, leaving the big alfalfa fields of Kearney we pass through Finney, Gray, Ford, Edwards, Stafford and into ..Reno county, stopping for a few hours at Hutchinson, the famous suit city of the state,whose beauty is brought unto greater prominence by the leafy trees and handsome appearance of its business houses and prominent dwellings of its well-to-do citizens. With Brother Sponsler of the NBWS we formed our first acquaintance with the managers of the Hutchinson and Southern railroad, and took an afternoon train for southern Kansas, our objective point being Anthony in Harper county. The road from Hutchinson takes a southerly course through Reno, Kingman and into Har- , per county on the extreme southern line of the state, and the prairie is one vast sea of wheat fields, dotted here and there with farm houses, orchards and clumps of trees, with now and then a big field of growing corn, that gives a pleasing appearance to the country as seen from a car window. The Hutchinson and Southern road traverses a section of country of surpassing richness, and has the appearance of an old settled country, whose fame as a ItrazU Wants (10.000 Feet. The Bralilian minister at Washington has notified Director-General Da- wheat aud com belt is historically established by the enormous crops that are yearly sent out from this famous section. The surface of the country is somewhat rolling, much more so than in the west part of the state, but with gentle slopes and wide bottoms and supplied with streams of water the land is all that a farmer could desire. Speaking of the Hutchinson and Southern, delegates to the Kingman eonven tion from this end of the state, will find this route to be the shortest and quickest, by means of the connection made by the Santa Fe at Hutchinson. Anthonty, the county seat of Harper, is a good, brisk town seventy miles from Hutchinson. The business houses are substantial brick structures of a modern character, and the stranger is favorably impressed with the place as a thriving agricultural city, surrounded by a eountry of prosperous farmers. Our sight-seeing was made doubly pleusaut by the fact that Anthony is the home of Brother Mnf- fet of the Republican, and his talented and excellent wife, who the Republican editors of the big Seventh district are proud to acknowledge as the worthy secretary of the editorial association. With the courtesy of a well-to-do newspaper man, he placed us, with his little family anil our daughter Susie behind MB fine spun of horses, and for miles around the eity we were permitted to have a close inspection of the fine farms, orchards and points of interest our editoriul friend takes delight in showing to strangers who enter the gates of his city. It is no flattery to say that Brother Maffet is one of those newspaper men that lieawake atnight to devise means of making himself useful to his town and county, and their welfare and prosperty are some of the important stibjeets that engross his attention, and all of his labors he is cheerfully encouraged by his worthy helpmeet. The soil of Harper county, in fact it seems to be general in southern Kansas, is of a red clayish color, but like the soil of this section, it seems to possess the necessary elements to grow grain and fruit that go to astonish the world and give to Kansas a large measure of her notoriety as a great agricultural state. There were many other things that could be mentioned of that section and onr trip, hud we space to spare.
