Extracted Article Text (OCR)


John Q. Hardy has withdrawn from he race for Sheriff. Senator Morton is slowly sinking into the grave. His physicians have given up all hope of his recovery. Our country correspondents are requested to send in the election returns of their respective townships as soon as possible after election.

The horse fair at Topeka was a failure. on account of the bad weather. Several went from this place on the excursion, but returned sadder and wetter men. The Journal and the Philistines, in the shape of the chairman of the Republican County Committee, are having war up in Salina. Draw that jaw bone on him Sampson.

Gov. Anthony published a pamphlet cor. taining a history of the Indian outrages on the Kansas frontier, and the claims on the United States growing out of these outrages. These claims amount to over a million dollars and are yet unpaid. The organs that are so disturbed by the political persecution" of the thieving officials in South Carolina are kindly quested to notice the fact that of the jurymen drawn for the trial of these cases 19 are colored and 17 white, 15 are Democrats and 21 Republicans.

That does not look very violently partisan. A candidate came into our office and wanted 100 tickets for a certain township, with all the combinations that could be made with the various candidates. We figured on it until we got up to 114 different combinations, and then "passed." He ulso thought we could afford to print them for less than 50 cents. Next Tuesday is election day. There has probably never been a time in the history of Riley county when the voters have had such array of candidates to choose from.

If twe don't get good officers this time, it will not be our fault. We have everybody to come out who encouraged could command the necessary two dollars and a half. Let us vote. The cartridge manufactory at Bridgeport, is kept busy supplying material to. to both parties to the Eastern war.

The company is now making from six to seven hundred thousand cartridges per day. Forty millions have already been turned out for Russia, and seventy millions for Turkey, and now the Italian government has sent an order for eighty millions. Inspecting officers from three governments work side by side to see that the goods are perfect. Sitting Bull refuses to be conciliated. The commission that was sent to interview him, proposed that he return to the United States, surrender his arms and ponies, in return for which he was to be forgiven for all transgressions he or his tribe had committed.

Sitting Bull smiled at the idea of surrendering, and refused the proffered terms. If he had been offered a seat in the Cabinet, say Secretary of the Interior, perhaps he would have returned reconciled into the fold of Unele Sam. Heretofore it has been repeatedly announced from the White House that the President intended to divorce the civil service and polities altogether, and the fact that he has weakened on the subject will be gratefully received in New York. Pennsylvania, Wisconsin. and other States where elections are shortly to But he has 1 not weakened.

Some of the Republican delegation from Pennsylvania have been anxious to come to a better understanding, and have called on both Secretary Sherman and the President. "They set forth the probability that Pennsylvania will follow Ohio unless something is done, and of course lay the blame on the civil service order of the President, who, in the interviews, had little to say. He would not, however, abandon his position. The President will not yield nor does! he seem to care to discuss the subject. He has the advantage and can afford to keep it.

The Democrats will confirm the nominations in the Senate, and both parties will pass the appropriations. The President was elected under a pledge of civil service reform, and for him to abandon his position now would be a virtual surrender of the principles he has so often declared. The President was elected under a pledge of civil service reform. The pledge was made by his party and was fully approved and indorsed by him. The vote of the people had been procured for him upon his solemn promise, made in the Cincinnati platform and in his letter of acceptance, that he would inaugurate the reforms Morton.

This is the whole question of civil service reform in a nutshell. How can Republicans denounce him for doing now what they demanded then? The Republican party of Kansas gave the Cincinnati platform a hearty endorsement and went in to win--and did win by the largest majority ever given the party in Kansas. Since the President has gone to work and inaugurated the reforms his party demanded, some of the politicians and some of the newspapers are found declaring that a great majority of the people of Kansas differ with the President; not because he has violated his pledges to the country; not because he has betrayed his party, but because he has striven to fulfill his pledges. This is the argument made by these men and papers, and the absurdity is plain on its face. Kansas gave 40,000 majority to Hayes because of his promise to rebuke the abuses that were dragging the Republican party down to an untimely grave, and as long as Mr.

Hayes continues to fulfill those promises, just so long will that majority sustain him. When he weakens it will weaken. The newspapers that are posing the policy of the administration are the same ones that have opposed political reforms of all kinds at all times. They shielded fraud and party corruption as they are now pleading for party spoils and the perpetuity of party tyranny. But their strength is gone and all they can now say and do against the platform and policy of the Republican party will have but little weight with those who bore it to victory, and who now wait for the fruits of their conquest in the peace and prosperity of the country.

MANHATTAN, KANSAS, OCTOBER 31, 1877. $1.00 A YEAR. We want a correspondent in every school district in the county. It is not necessary that the communications be written grammatically or spelled correctly; send in the items and the irregularities will be corrected. A copy of the paper will be sent free to those who will send THE ENTERPRISE a few items each week--either by letter or postal card.

St. George. COUNTY AFFAIRS. I measured 15 grains of corn grown on my old upland, which measured inches laid a row, each end touching others. Who can beat that? It was a kind known as the "Bloody Butcher." My weather register shows inches of rain-fall since April.

John Rhodes has very sick, but is now better. The surrounding citizens are to meet on the 25th to gather a portion of his corn crop that is exposed to the depredations of stock. J. EMMONS. noticed in your last issue items different parts of the county, I thought I would let you know that the people of Ogden are not all dead yet.

Farmers are getting ready to husk their immense crop of corn; some have already commenced. Mr. Dixon wills soon be prepared to buy new corn for which he will pay the highest market price. other day, while driving stock from his field, one of our neighbors came across two heroines with sacks of corn on their shoulders coming forth from his field. John Mallon is building an addition to his residence, for which we think he will not have much need this winter.

There being abundance of everything there is not much excitement over the election, as Ogden township cannot find candidates to run. I think the office of sheriff will fall to some body, but cannot tell who. Ogden school commenced last week--the school board having secured the services of Mr. J. F.

Bradley and Miss Anna Haacke. The selection is a wise one. Before closing would like to ask which candidate will furnish the largest keg oi beer, There being a particular liking for that beverage here, it would go a long way in procuring votes. The sick foiks are all about well. With best wishes for your valuable paper I remain, Yours truly.

OBSERVER. You, sir, should look to it that every name on the tieket you vote be that of a sound, man. with boni-fide permanently, tax-payer, whose interus whose ests are identical with our own, and a man whose, seeks qualifications for, filling the office are unquestionable. Lyceum next Friday evening: debate, question. Resolved, That single life is preferable married life." Affirmative, J.

L. Bradley, W. W. Stevenson; negative, E. Whitaere, L.

R. Pinder. Songs, select reading and music besides business. Services every Sabbath afternoon conducted by Wm. I.

Pinder. Sons meet every Saturday night. That dancing club isn't organized yet. It is believed that either Whitaere, Houghton or Ensign will be our next sheriff, and that Johnson William will surprise his competitors on the connt for commissioner. Well, let 'em.

C. Alert. The dance was a success. Good weather for ducks and political men. Candidates for sheriff are thick.

When a man comes along with a plug hat on, the farmers have business at the back part of the farm: but as candidates come mostly on Sunday, there is not much time lost. The Rev. U. Farmin and wife, while riding in their buggy, were thrown from it by the horse becoming frightened, and badly hurt--the wife having three ribs and a collar bone broken. They were getting along all right at last accounts.

R. E. F. C. L.

Caley has finished making molassas. Some farmers have commenced husking corn, and it turns out very well. There will be a festival at the stone school-house on the evening of Nov. 2d. Wm.

Chaffee, the Otter Creek merchant. has gone to Marshall, Mo. D. D. P.

Riley Centre. The sun shines again and we are hopeful T. R. Hair is taking in his apples. He has bushels of them, and more too.

Steve Soar is fattening a number of fine hogs and shoats-Berkshire and PolandChina. Thirty-six gallons of molassas is what they made at Swanson's mill in half a day. A dog in this neighborhood died from the effects of barking at the candidates for sheriff. Dance in the hall Friday night. Nov.

2nd: music by G. W. King and brother. All are invited. 25th, A.

Silver, of Riley Centre. The burial took place last Saturday, and was largely attended. Where is brother C. 0. N.

Form? Is he waiting for something to happen D. E. FORM. For Commissioner from 2d District. The friends of Johnson S.

Williams hereby him a candidate for County Commissioner from the 2d District, Riley county. While he is decidedly in favor of a herd law for this county, he will firmly oppose the enforcement of such a law by the Commissioners unless first sustained by a majority vote of the people. Believing the Blue Valley Railroad bond indebtedness to be an unbearable fraud, and a burden upon the people, he insists upon the strongest legal opposition that can be brought to bear against their payment. MARRIAGES. By Rev.

R. D. Parker. Oct. 25th.

1877, Mr. Henry C. Peak and Miss S. E. Grow, all of Riley county.

Oct. 27, 1877. Mr. James Graves, of Wamego, and Miss Annie Phillips, of Riley county. DEATHS.

DIED. McIntyre Creek, Oct. 29th, of diphtheria. Celia Jane, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.

Orlando Legore, aged 3 years. Sudden Death. A. Silver died suddenly last Thussday. He had ridden from Riley Centre, and was chilled through.

While eating his dinner at the Cottage hotel, he was stricken with apoplexy and sank down in his chair. Dr. was called, and Mr. Silver was removed to the Doctor's office where he died in a few minutes. The friends of deceased were sent for, and the body removed to Riley Centre.

Mr. Silver was about sixtyone years of age, and one of the old settlers of Kansas. He was a minister of the church of United Brethern. He had just returned from Oregon where he had been for a year or so past. He well known throughout this section of the State, and his death will be regretted by a large circle of friends and relatives.

They positively refuse to accept more than from $18 to $22.50 for 1,000 feet of common, and from $25 to for finishing lumber at N. A. Adams' lumber yard. 74-tf. THE ENTERPRISE.

He is not so sick but what he gets away. Last week an officer came on here from Tennesee in search of a defaulting taxcollector, one R. C.

Knight, by name. He had intercepted a letter from Knight to his family, which gave him the clue. He says that Knight is a defaulter to the amount of $6,000 and $9,000. Several perbetween, seen Knight, but somehow they could not put their hands on him, and a search of three or four days resulted unsuccessfully. Last Sunday Constable Demmick and the Tennessee, man went to Junction City, could not get some trace of him.

In the meantime, City Marshal Parkinson had obtained trace of a family by the name of Knight, living in the old -Perry house. Discovering that the head of the family worked in the lime kiln, he interviewed Tobias and found that the man that worked there was a brother to the defaulter, and that the latter was lying at his brother's house, very sick with the lung fever. Mr. Parkinson immediately proceeded to the Perry house, found Knight lying miserable bed, in a room devoid of on a furniture, with hardly a whole pane of glass in the windows. He was breathing heavily and had the appearance of a man his death bed.

A young girl, neice of on the sick man; was sitting the side of the bed, giving him some medicine. The Marshal asked him if his name was R. C. Knight, and if he was from Tennessee. He replied in the affirmative.

Then," said the Marshal, "I have authority to arrest and detain you here." "Oh, God cried the young girl, and fell over on the a bed in a faint. Knight informed the Marshal that he could not get away, and that he would never get off the bed alive- -and, indeed, he looked like it. He was so weak he had to be supported every time he raised up to take his medicine. The Marshal procured the services of J. J.

Graft to stay with the sick person all night, with injunctions not to leave the room, watch strict, closely all night. And now comes the strange part of the story. About five o'clock the next morning Graft made his appearance at Parkinson's house, and informed him that the prisoner had escaped. Of course Marshal was very much astonished at the escape of a man that some supposed could not live until morning, and rather emphatically demanded how this could be thus. Graft said that he did not know; that about half past four it became necessary for him to retire for a few minutes: that he was not.

gone over five minutes, and that when he did return Knight was gone. Ile stated that he searched the premises and immediate vicinity, and, not finding him, had come after Parkinson. The Marshal immediately made a thorough search of the premises and surrounding neighborhood. The officers returned from Junction City, for many miles around the country been searched ands carefully, but up to date no Knight has been found nor any trace of him. Dr.

Patee, who attended him, says that he could not have possibly escaped without arsistance, and that it was impossible for him to recover at all without the most careful nursing. A colored woman who lives next door says that some time in the night she heard a vehicle in the street, and, raising up in bed, saw a carriage standing in the road in front of the Perry house. She does not know what time it was, but says it was pretty late. We hope to be able to give more particulars next week. It is certainly a very strange affair.

C. M. Gifford's Sale. The sale came off, as advertised, on the 23rd inst. There were about one hundred persons on the grounds, exclusive of loafers and candidates for county offices.

The bidding started rather slowly. At halfpast two o'clock there were probably a dozen head of cattle sold. They then adjourned for dinner, where refreshments were served to all without discrimination. After a hearty dinner, Jeff. Brown's melodious voice was again heard awakening the echoes of Madison Creek, his earnest request bidding was done more rapidly than hitherto.

Although not a drop of "Col. Sellers' oil of gladness" was allowed on the grounds the bidding was as prompt and as good as we have noticed at any cattle sale in the county. Critics say that Doc. Perry deserves great praise for the beautiful pieces in oil he depicted on the nether portions of the sportive bovines. Ed.

didn't receive a bid on the horse he offered, and it was very evident that the people did not appreciate the points about the horse. The following is what some of the cattle brought: Amount of sales, grade cows averaged thoroughbred bull calves, $81 to $100: thoroughbred cows and heifers, $75 to $100; grade heifer calves about $12: thoroughbred bull, Andrew Jackson, held for sale at $300. IKE N. S. Kansas Central Association.

The Kansas Central Association held its fall meeting with the Congregational Church at Wabaunsee, Oct. 16-17. Two churches, Shilo and Goshen, were added to the roll. Rev. W.

T. Blenkarn, the new pastor at Wabaunsee, was received, and S. P. Dunlap, of North Topeka, placed upon the roll of licentiates. Sermons were preached by Rev.

M. D. Tereney and Mr. J. J.

Wilson. Discussions were had upon "The Importance and Methods Keeping Individual Church History." "What is the Prineipal Object of Sunday School "Worship." Essays? were read by Rev. H. Myers, on "Every Christian a private Minister of the Word;" by Rev. L.

Armsby, on "The Worship of Holy Spirit; and by Rev. H. Davies, othe "Welch Preaching." The next meeting to be held with the Milford Church. R. D.

P. A short trip to Junction City last week convinced us that that burg is beginning to look up a little. All the store houses are occupied by business firms, and there is a vacant house in town. This is quite different from what it was a couple of years ago, when a third of the store houses in town were empty and the proprietors of the rest of them spent most of their time on store boxes in front of their places of business.
