The trouble with SIMPSON is that he has too much brains to he mtccessful ON a clown anil too little to be useful as a statesman. —New York 1 'reRH. Mr. Simpson's Candidacy. It is witlt a sense of Kennlne regret that the NKWH learns that there is a possibility that the Hon. JKHKMIAH SIMPSON will hot be a candidate for congress in the cnmlii(f campaign. We have carefully wutchcil the development of Mr. SIMPSON no a statesman, anil 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 bim. Of course a removal from the race of the avowed champion of these new theories would detract much from the g-cneral 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, and the probability Is that 1 will not be a candidate for the rcnomiimtion, although 1 could be nominated and elected easily. I came here in tjie first plnee without seeking the ofllce and in congress I have endeavored to do what 1 could to advance the inter ests of my parly. I have written my friends that I think I can do more good by lecturing and stumping other territory, and although that would be tt sacriHee, 1 tun inclined to think that my work wouhl be more effective conducted in that manner. My decision is not final and will not 1)0 until I consult my friends at our coming state convention." We cannot bring ourselves to believe that the exigencies of the occasion demand that Mr. SIMPSON make the cruel he suggests, even at the price of a ,widcr dissemination of the new gospel of free trade and land taxntion as laid down by UKNIIY GKORGR. We believe the first duty of a patriot is to his own household, therefore if Mr. SIMPSON has any mis sionary 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 his proper field. He has no business to go traipsing off into other Lerritory, when there are so many thousand voters in the Big Seventh who radically disagree with him as to tlie justice and wisdom of saddling all the taxes upon the land of the farmer. This is one of the largest districts in the United States and ban 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 possible amount of light shed upon the new doctrine. Besides, Mr. SIMPSON is the logical candidate of his party. 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. SIMPSON'S candidacy, and so far as we have been able to learn he has been enjoying good health. Iiy a judicious course of outdoor exercise he has successfuly warded off; any physical break down that might naturally ho expected to follow excessive mental labors. Hy his own avowa! he can be "nominated and elected easily. 1 ' No other man iu the People's party can. Therefore, Mr. SIMPSON Bhould readily see the folly of laying off the armor at this moment. We hope Air. SIMPSON'S friends to whom he may write will lay all these facts before him and insist that he consent to be n candidate. We hope they will do this, If for no otheu - .reason, as a favor to the Republicans of.the Seventh district. Cansas advises tiro to the effect that $»v SIMPI'ON win be oleetea to stay The Helplessness of Free Trade. The utter helplessness, and we might say uopoloBsnesB, of free trade in a contest with protection, was fully sot forth by Lord SALISBURY in his speech at Hastings to the workingmen. As SAMHKUUY «ays, 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 the English mind. While the other nations of the earth are making and receiving concessions whereby their trade may be advantageously extended, England see* her foreign market gradually growing less, and IB powerless to prevent it. England has nothing on which to trade. Yet England finds herself In this position not through any spirit of generosity or philanthropy she has displayed in the past. England 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. Wliile she complains most against the United States she is absolutely powerless to retaliate without injuring herself more than us. SALISBURY 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 •ottos, even if she does not sell us a dollar's worth of goods in return. WhUo there is no reason to fear the loss of England us'a customer of our surplus provisions and raw material, •why should we seek to retain her as such? There is no economy in shipping cotton to England to be manufactured. Why not manufacture the product in the United States and export goods instead 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 he mutual and reciprocal. Encouragement and protection of the one is incidental encouragq- ment 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. Hon. OKOKK L. DOUGLASS of Wichita, one of the brightest and best members the Kansas legislature has had during the past four years, was overtaken last Saturday by a Ueaeon reporter, who asked him the following question - . "What do you think of this railroad question?" Mr. HOUOLASH said: "The lime 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 laws and 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 llulf of Mexico, through Kansas and into Missouri, at a certain price, and as regularly charges just double that price for dropping a car load <»f 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 withoutuny more delay; for l 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 and they propose to have it. "I believo the Republican convention this year will have something to say on this subject that will penetrate even the stuffed ears of the railway hoses, from the great lakes to the Pacific ocean. When there is anything of importance to be done in this country, it is the Republican party which does it; and the Republican party is go ing to settle this railway question in Kansas." THE KANSAS PltlCSS. Hutchinson looms up as a convention town, owing, of course, to the fact that she has several first-class hotels, and the best hallin the state.—Pratt County Times. Down in the flooded district on the Kaw bottoms one lonely sign managed to keop above the water which read. '•These lots for sale cheap." Its sole companion was another more modest nn appearance but more emphatic in words: "Keep off the grass."—Argen tine Eagle. Since the Hutchinson convention the fellow with the long string of figures showing just the number of votes each candidate for governor would have on the first ballot, and the number of ballots required to nominate his favorite has been so still that the butterfly's flaplet can be heard across a- township. —Pratt county Times. Hon. J. W. Jones of Hutchinson, candidate for nomination for congress before the Republican convention, will bo in Dodge City, Thursday the 20th 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 Seventh district.—Times-Ensign. 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. .7. W Jones of Hutchinson. Mr. JoneB has made a 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 excellent chance of receiving the noinma- tion, 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 see wherein they have been mislead, They see the ill repute brought upon the state by the false statements of such men as I'effer 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 whole matter is now plainly seen and the people of Kansas 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. llnuU Wants 00,000 Feet. The Hrutlliau minister at Washington bus notified Director-General Da­ vis that the republic of Brasrtl 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. Ilrazil applies for nearly 00,000 square feet of space divided among the department buildings of the exposition, this being 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 Unit country, among the leading feat-> arcs of which will bo groups of ehin- chona. coffee trees in bearing, cochineal cactus, mammoth palms, ferns, bamboos, etc., and models of fruit. AN EXCURSION OF ONE t Over the Snolii Fe and Hutchinson and Southern Hallroads. From the Laktn 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 a trip. "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," and so it is with an occasion of this kind, and call it by whatever name you please, the pleasure is not destroyed nor the mem ory of the enjoyment effaced. We took one ourselves, last week, and in addition to the pleasant, invigorating effects, we arc free to say that the re^ suits were more than we anticipated— it has given us means of "information that will prove gratifying both to our home and distant readers. It 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 Sunflower 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 of an other bountiful season, to put to flight the calamity howl of the sockless 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 Ke to Hutchinson, leaving the big alfalfa fields of Kearney wo pass through Finney, dray, Kord, Edwards, Stafford and into Reno county, stopping for a few hours at Hutchinson, the famous salt city of the state,whose beauty is brought 'into 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 NEWS we formed our first acquaintance with the managers of the Hutchinson and Southern railroad, and took an afternoon train for southern Kansas, onr objective point being Anthony in Harper county. The road from Hutchinson takes a southerly course through Reno, Kingman and into Harper county on the extreme southern 1 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 ear window. The Hutchinson and Southern road traverses a seetionof country of surpassing richness, and has the appearance of an old settled country, whose fame as a wheat and corn beit 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 andSciuth- ern, delegates to the Kingman convention 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 lire substantial brick structures of it modern character, and the stranger is favorably impressed with the place as a thriving agricultural city, surrounded by a country of prosperous farmers. Our sight-seeing was made doubly pleasant by the fact that Anthony is the home of Brother Maf- fetof 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 and our daughter Susie behind his fine span of horses, and for miles around the city we were permitted to have a close inspection of the fine farms, orchards and points of interest our editorial friend takes delight in showing to strangers who enter the gateB of his city. It is no flattery to soy that Brother Maffet iB one of those newspaper men that lie awake at night to devise means of making himself useful to his town and county, and their welfare and prosperty are some of tho important subjects that engross his attention, and all of his labors he 1B ebeerf nlly encouraged by Ills 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 Boil of this section, it seems to possess the necessary elements to grow grain and fruit that go to astonish tho world and give to Kansas a large measure of her notoriety as u great agricultural state. There were many other things that could be mentioned of that section and our trip, had'we space to spare.
