Under said apportionment the various precincts are entitled to the following number of delegates: KINGMAN COUNTY. Allen 1 Belmont 1 Uenuett No Rights for Women. The committee on judiciary of the Methodist general conference has decided that the word "laymen" in the dicipline, where it. provides for lay representation, cannot be interpreted to include women, but "lias meant and does mean men only." If that be the correct interpretation of the Methodist discipline, then the discipline is wrong and should be amended without delay. It seems strange that a progressive church, like the Methodist is known to be, should still cling to the miserable dogma that woman is incapable of representing herself in the "councils of a church in which she constitutes the major portion of the membership and comprises the great workiu" body of the organization. TaUr <ie women out of the Methodist cl ,h, and within a fortnight half the church buildings would be eloBed, half of the ministers would be seeking employment in other directions, and the other half preaching to empty pews. Yet, with these conditions so patent that they have not escaped the notice of the secular world, we find the "pillars" of that church willing to perpetuate the injustice that has so long been done the women by excluding them from representation in the conferences of the church. It is high time the BUCK- I.KVB were turned down. fore. Foreign exchange is lower and gold exports have practically stopped. Sliver lias gone up a trifle. The surplus reserve of New York banks increased $.1,783,8riO. Funds tire seeking investment on all hands. The low rates for money, both on cull and on time, continue substantially unchanged. Some Figures Denoting Prosperity. Reno county improves with each passing year. It is very large and almost every acre is fertile. There are more acres than the present population can crop but each year shows an increase over the former in the number of acres in cultivation. The returns of the assessors are now in, and they show that in the last year over 18,0(10 ncrcs have been brought under the plow: they show a corresponding increase in the number of fruit and for est trees; a wholesome increase in live stock, and also in the value of the products of the dairy and garden. , The reports disclose the fact that the. farmers arc richer and more independent this year than ever before.' On March 1, 1891, the farmers had 91,727 bushels of wheat in their granaries; on March 1. 1802, they had 192,900 bushels. On the same date of 1HBI, they had on hand 300,733 bushels of corn, and on March 1, 1892, they had 1,029,327 bushels. They have more horses and cattle than they had a year ago, and all are in a good and improving condition. The prosperity of the farmers is not only a present enjoyment, but prospective as well. The present season they have 90,045 acres of wheat, as compared with 71,90G acres last year, which looks fine and promises a more than average yield. It is free from insects and rust, and is heavy strawed and long headed. They have 33,583 acres of oats, as compared with 29,116 acres in 1891, and it never looked more promising. Their 117,778 acres of corn is in good condition, and while a little backward during the good wheat growing weather, it is now looking very well on the average. Pastures are in fine condition and stock is doing well. While many labored under the disadvantage of indebtedness they are now rapidly freeingthemselves therefrom, having liquidated almost a million dollars of this character of impediment during the past eighteen months. Reno county farms have been selling at very reasonable prices during the past year and in great numbers, and have been purchased by the Reno county farmers themselves. Prices are fair and generally satisfae- fory, considering the fact that those commodities which the farmers have to buy are purchased at relative prices. Chattlc mortgage business has dropped from the maximum to the miniymnn, and money is more plentiful and can be obtained at less rates of interest by those who desire to borrow. All in .all, Reno county is in a wholesome com mercial condition, and what is true of it, is true of nearly all other good counties in Kansas, and they are nearly all good. The people are well on the way to the highest tide of genu ine prosperity the state of Kansas has ever seen.

The industrial disturbances in the east, says the New York Press, though exteusive, have not largely effected general trade as yet. It is to be hoped that a means of settlement may be found before business interests feel the strain to which the idleness of so large an army of men must sooner or later subject them if the various strikes and lockouts continue for a considerable length of time. The predictions made last week in this column that a better demand for iron at the western ecn ters would soon be apparent has been fulfilled. Prices are unchanged as yet. Lumber both east and west is in more active request. Leather prices are slightly higher. Wheat, oats and corn have advanced from 3 ,"i to 4 cents on the bushel. Wheat exports last week were 3,003,003 bushels, or 1,100,000 bushels more than for the corresponding week last year. PriccB are reported higher for print clothB. The market for chevoits and blankets is brisk, and mills are busy. Wool is firm. Haw cotton has gained X of cent, and the consumption of cotton goods is very large. The official Btate ment of the imports and exports for the nine months ending March 31, 1892 show the tremendous increase of 8453, 005,000 im breadstuff exports over the same period last year. Net earnings of 124 railways for March show the encouraging increase of U .5 per cent, over last year. Hank clearings from sixty-eight cities show an apparent increase of 8 per cent, over the same week in 1891. The changes made by the establishment of a new stock clearing house in connection with the New York stock exchange huve operated to reduce the apparent clearings at this city by 827,000,000 or 828,000,000. The tendencies of the' stock market during the past week have been downward. Floods, the netiou of the Northern Pacific i passing its dividends and various bearish manipulations have unused the depressed condition both in bonds and shnreb.^Money Is still easier than be- The irresponsible newspaper correspondent has become a nuisance and a positive detriment to journalism. Dispatches are frequently sent out from KanBas which have no foundation at all, and arc pure fictions. The reason of this is that correspondents must send out something sensational or it will not be paid for; if nothing sensational occurs, they manufacture it, Respectable newspapers ought not to permit such things, but they do. Ly ing should be exposed by the Kansas papers.—State Journal. Gen. BOOTH announces a great need of funds to carry on the Salvation Army, lie recalls his announcement that the Snoo.OOO given for his "Darkest England" scheme would require 91.10,000 annually for maintenance, as only §20,000 of that had been furnished so far, So the scheme is almoBfc at a standstill. The "spiritual" fund is exhausted. To carry on the "spiritual side of the war" into the Belf -denial week in October will require 840,000, and the money is needed immediately. No man occupying the place of presi dent and desirous for a renomination. over before BO studiously avoided using the power in his reach for political purposes as has BKNJAMIN HARRISON. It is in great contrast with the opposition. The leaders who oppose him have had repeated meetings, have laid their plans and are thoroughly organized, They are shrewd—some of them unscrupulous^—and the results will be watched with great interest.—Chicago Inter-Ocean. We assure the Wichita Deacon that we are sincere when we say we would rather see JKIIRMIAII SIMPSON try to got to congress than any other /man the People's party might nominate; and furthermore, we are frank to Way that his endorsement by the Beacon gives us absolutely no uneasiness. The Demoeratie bosses may endorse JKHUY, but they cannot deliver fifty per cent, of the vote of their party. The practical jokers of France seem to be oil'on a vacation. At any rate there has not been a bomb found in Paris for upwurd of two wcek^. Shalt"Wc Send a Heller Train? GPITOHNKWB : It has occurred tome that the city of Hutchinson, and all of Keno country, for that matter, has, just at present, an opportunity to do good, and advertise our city and county, in a way that seldom occurs. The opportunity may not occur again in a quarter of a century, to do so much,and get so great results, as may be accomplished now by timely action. "There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken nt the flood leadson to fortune." Wise men and communities should allow no opportunity to do charitable acts to pass, without heartily embracing it, especially when they can advertise their community to advantage by doing the act, which is in itself glory enough for the doing of it. Our citizens are all aware that there exists over a large portion our country wide spread suffering aB a result of the recent ll6ods. Thousands of people nre'homeless and without food and clothing. This destitution is so great that the burden of relieving it is too great to be borne by their immediate neighbors. How our community, which htiB in times past, asked and received aid from these very people, who are now, by their nakedness, mutely appealing to the world for succorancl aid, can remain passive and continue to go to church and thank God for our good luck and the fullness of our harvest, is past our understanding. I am told that our spring assessment shows that there is now in our cribs in this county a million bushels of corn and a large amount of wheat and oats. Is it not our duty, with such overflowing cribs and granaries, to give at least a small portion of it to those who have lost all, even their seed? 1 know our people are as generous as anybody; that when their attention is especially called to the matter they will vie with each other, in seeing who can bring in the largest loads and get here quickest with it. What is done, must be done quickly. These people must have seed corn and grain for their stock, while they are cultivating the growing crop, as well as bread for themselves, or they cannot produce the crop. It seems to me that we ought to start out of here within a week, a train load of grain, salt, etc., composed of at least ten cars of corn two ears of wheat, two or three of oats and four of salt. I would raise this by classifying the givers, in this way: Lawyers, one car corn; doctors, one car corn; First National Bank, one ear corn; Valley State bank, one car corn; Hutchinson Nn tional bank, one car corn; Kansas (.•rain & Live Stock company, one ear corn; Hutchinson Wholesale Grocery company, one ear load of corn, potafos, beans,-etc.; Hutchinson Packing company, meats, equal in value to carload of corn; dry goods merchants, one car corn; ladies of the city of Hutchinson clothing, food, or whatever they may be able to contribute. Add to this two car loads of wheat, and two' of oats, to be given by the farmers of Reno county, two cars of salt by the Kansas Salt company and two by 'the Hutchinson Salt and Manufacturing company, and we have a train which would make one of the big Santa Fe mogul engines hump, itself to pull it. Let each car be decorated appropri ately with the name of its contents, and name, or names of donors. That the Santa Fe would pull this train to Kansas City, and the Missouri Pacific, take it from there to 8t.. Louis, free of charge, there can be no doubt. This may look like a big undertaking to some, but it- can be done, if all will unite in the work; and we will not know thirty days afterward that we are any poorer for having done it; that we will all feel better for it, even if we area little, joo- er, there can be no doubt. Now, let us, for a moment glance at the direct benefits that will result from thiB. That thousands of people in the llooded districts will be dissatisfied with their present homes, I think all will agree. Will not such a gift as this be likely to attract hundreds of thrifty people to our country? Will it not increase the price of every acre of land in Reno county at least one dollar per acre? Will it not increase the price of every town lot In the city which has originated such a gift? As 1 have before said, the fact that we have relieved suffering creatures, ought In itself to be reward enough; but It is plain to any thinking person that, from a selfish stand point, we will be greatly benefitted by the gift. The telegraph wires would be hot with the news of our enterprise from the time the train was ready to start until it was delivered in St. Louis, and long afterward. It would do more to build up our credit in the east than a victory of cither the Republicans or Democrats over the Alliance. What say the people of the city of Hutchinson, and Reno county? If we say we will, then It Is done. Much more might be said, but I think that our people are ready upon mere mention of the necessity of doing it, without being further urged. Respectfully, JAMKS MolClNBTRY. P. S.—I have possibly left some classes of people out who will be glad to contribute. I am satisfied that the churches will willingly contribute, That special collections will, upon mere mention of the matter, be taken at all our churches next Sunday for this purpose. Respectfully, J.
