OUT of 7,000 bills and resolutions intro

SKCUHTAUV MANNING is reported as no

of collapse , the result of overwork and
worry as head of the treasury depart
ment. In Mr. Manning's instance , to
the enormous routine work demanding
bis attention was added incessant and an
noying applications for ollice , which
made heavy drafts upon precious time.
Combined with this was the opposition of
a largo and inllncntial portion of bis

ho succumbed to the strain. Nerves of
stcol and brains of crystal would yield to
such a pressure.

only in keeping with the rule in all de
partments of the federal judiciary ser
vice to roll up fees to the highest limit oi
the law. The clerks and marshals have
for years pursued this nlan with so much
patriotic enthusiasm that n suitor , who
has once hud experience with costs in Un
cle Sam's courts , never forgets his bill ,
There are costs In every direction anil
point of the compass ; costs before
bringing suit , accumulating costs
"during its pondage , accumulated costs
during its prosecution and a mountain ol
coats tit its termination. The excessive
fees of the federal courts have bccomo n
positive scandal , and the result Is the
movement to reduce thorn and to make
the fee-paid ollicials salaried instead ol
dependent upon their collections. When
the compensation of ofllcors of the law
depends upon the fees there Is a constant
tendency to bleed the suitor for the bone

The Engilah Commission a Failure.
Advocates of railroad commissions ns
adjusters of the difTcrenccs between the
railways and their patrons are constantly
pointing to the English commission ns a
successful example of the practical oper
ations of such a body. As n matter of
the fact the English railroad commission ,
though endowed with much greater pow
ers than those of any in this country , has
failed to solve the problem for which it
was constituted. A bill lias recently been
introduced In parliament to supersede it
by another commission , with arbitrary
powers of regulation , whoso every order
will have the force of a judgment , and
from whoso decisions concerning
rates , fees and tolls no appeal
can bo taken. The commission proposed
Is to bo in oflect a court of llnal resort ,
composed of profoundly learned judges ,
with most oxtunsivo powers , holding of
lice for life , and so liberally salaried that
there shall bo no ground for suspicions of
corruption. An important clause in tlio
bill requires the railway companies to
submit within a year a revised specifica
tion of their rates and charges and a re
vised schedule of maximum rates and
charges. Advisory commissioners are to
bo appointed to hear complaints , confer
with the railways , and publish results.
The whole design of the bill is to give
the greatest publicity to all the till'airs
nnd methods of the railways.
It is evident that the iiresont law in
England fails for the reason that every
like law In this country lias fallen
short of success. The commission Is
powerless to afford the relief dosired.
It can recommend , but it cannot enforce.
On this account commissions htivo stood
in the way of securing redress because
they have been used and are used ns tx
sop to public sentiment and their ex
istence proves a barrier to effective legis
lation lo remedy the evils which are the
outgrowth of railroad mismanagement.
A commission like that projected in
England to replace the ono now vainly
struggling to satisfy both the railroads
and the public is less n commission than
ii court of the highest jurisdiction and
supreme power over all questions brought
before it. It would bo free from the
many objections now urged against ex
isting commissions , but the great cor
porations of England are hardly likely to
pcrjnit its creation.
llussin Intriguing.
There is a growing feeling of anxiety
in England over the signs of Russia's
stealthy advance in Central Asia toward
the Indian frontier General Alikhanon" ,
the llussian fire cater , whoso name was
so prominent in news from Afghanistan
a year ago , lias made an imposing entry
into Pendjeh , and has assured the natives
of Russia's protection against all ono-
mics. This is the same Allkhanoll who ,
only a few months ago , was announced
as having been removed from his com
mand for cruel treatment of the people of
Werv. It appears that the old Muscovite
trick of disgracing in public but rewarding
in private , military ollicers and diplomats ,
whose xeal has mndo them particularly
obnoxious to England or Some other great
power , is still being played with skill and
vigor. Alikhanoft' evidently retains the
support and confidence of his own supe
riors and there are other signs than his
own actions which indicate that ho may
soon have another opportunity to win
new laurels upon the field of battle. The
work of delimiting the Afghan frontier is
at n standstill owing to the convenient
illness of M. Lcssar , the young Prussian
diplomat and engineer , who figured
so conspicuously in London lu = *
spring. It is ajj fjnii" Bjgll f0"r
M , l < ess r to "become ill again
under such circumstances. Ho had a
very Important and convenient illness
something over a year ago when Sir Peter
Lumsden and his assistants of the British
boundary commission were waiting to
begin work on tlio frontier , nnd Russia
was preparing to push the line far to the
south Ijy BOiz'mg the Pendjeh oasis. At
last accounts General KomarofT was ex
pected to arrive at Pendjoh soon. This
is precisely the move lie would make if
another grab for Afghan territory were
England is not idle. The railroad
toward Quotta and Candahar is being
pushed steadily forward and the depots of
Illndostan are daily sending hundreds of
tons of material to aid in the construc
tion of this important line of military
supply. The British government is de
termined , if brought face to face with the
possibility of war for their Indian posses
sions , to meet the issue fully prepared.
Russian ambition and Russian intrigue

Gcronlmo's Surrender.
Goronimo and his Apaoho bucks have
mot General Crook and they are his.
The hostile Chiricahuas have sur
rendered unconditionally and are now
in custody. Dispatches from Fort
Howio announce that the Apache war is
ended. This result is in a great measure
due to the olleet of the lamented Craw
ford's last campaign in which lie pur
sued tlio Hying Apaches to their lair in
the mountains of Sonora and made them
sue for peaeo , But it la due no loss to
the active endeavors and clear head of
George Crook who alone has tested the
value of Indian scouts in u half dozen
campaigns and made savugo auxiliaries
the backbone of Ids various expedi
tions in Arizona and Mexico.
Now that Goronimo has scrrendored
without conditions , General Crook will
be able to dispose of Him according to his
deserts. It is snfo to say tlmt ho will not
bo again returned to San Carlos and sub
jected to the effects of a divided authori
ty , civil and military , It is equally safe to
say that Crook will llatly decline fu
ture responsibility for the conduct ot
hosliles not placed under his
complete control. Having captured
the renegade Indians his duties will
end after ho has turned them over to the
Indian department. Geronimo and his
bucks should bo put whore they will
novoragain trouble Arizona. A hemp neck
tie or a cool cell on the Dry Tortugas would
be an effective settlement of the Indian
problem so far as they nro concerned.
As for General Crook liu should bo re
warded with the command of the department -
. ment of the Platte , Having wound up

change the climate of Whipplo Barracks
for the more salubrious utmosphnro of

laurels and where his naino is held in
honor and respect.
THK insurance tax of the country Is an
enormous ono when the full extent is
taken into consideration , It is estimated
by insurance companies that in tlio United
States last year dwelling houses were
burned at the rate of ono every hour , with
an average loss of $1,890. Barns and sta
bles , fifty per week. Country stores ,
three per clay , with n loss of $110,000 per
week. Ten Jhotcls burn weekly , with n
loss per year of _ $4,000,000. Every
other day a lumber yard goes
up in smoke , each representing
$20,000. Forty-four cotton factories ,
the loss in each case bolng 528,000 , ; forty-
three woolen mills at $ io,000 each , and
forty-two chemical works at 827,000
each , were destroyed by lire last year.
Forty-two boot and shoo factories were
consumed , tlio loss being $17,000 each.
Theatres were lapped up by the llames at
the rate of five per month ; nvorago loss ,
$10,000. Only about half as many court
houses were destroyed , the cost of each
being about $20,000 , !

of the house to the representatives of the

Wonderful music there was one day ,
Chopin to listen , Liszt to play.
Said Chopin to Liszt : "Kam would I learn
If the ear may , through music , the colois dis
cern. "
Then Liszt struck clear fiom the highest
Thn song of bright hkics the summer brefizo ;
And Chopin cried out with keen delight :
'U sco soil azure and glbtoning white. "
Then Liszt sinotu slowly the deep bass
And summoned theshadowy trooping hordes
Ot doubt and despair that icnd and pcfe
The soul in dink homs. "Away with the
blade ,
Awful vision I" cried Chopin. It passed ;
And away from the bass Liszt's lingers Hew
Then a witching , palpitant , brilliant strain ,
Which thrilled and kindled and thrilled
agnin ;
And Chopin cried quick as tlio melody sped :
"Mine eyes lest on roses and cheeks tliat arc
red. "
And so by his wondrous , exquisite art
Liszt touched , through both eciibes , the ono
human heart ,
And showed as a rose might , transformed tea

onno county , wo are not lonesome for
any lack In this direction , The Incoming
tide of actual settlers is already well un
der way. It Is estimated that 125 cars of
emigrant movables have been received at
the six railroad towns in the county , and
thirty of them were unloaded at Ivimball.
Cheyenne is tlio largest county In the
state an appropriate tltlo now applied
to it is , "the biggest and best. " It is 107
miles from east to west , and about seven
ty miles wido. Eighteen miles from the
south line and twenty-two miles from the
west line , on the ( main line of the Union
Pacific railway , is situated the town of
It lias a beautiful location on the south
slope of the valley of the Ledge Polo
crook , a never falling mountain stream
which flows through the countv from
west to oast. Potter , eighteen miles east ,
is llio only other town in the county with
in thirty-live miles of Ivimball. Cheyenne
county will , without any doubt , bo di
vided this fall into six counties , which
will leave Kimball very near the center
of a county about thirty-live miles square.
Tills cannot fail to give our town tlio
county seat of as suggested "Kimball"
The country surrounding us Is of the
beautiful rolling sort. It is an astonish
ing fact , remarked upon by all now com
ers , how little waste land there is within
the boundaries of "Kimball" county.
The soil is an excellent rich , black loam ,
deep enough in all places for agricultural
purposes. In the Ledge Polo valley the
soil is just sandy enough to raise tlio
finest vegetables in the world.
Kimball was platted one yoavjago. On

A Woni ) TO THE wisn.
The final summing up is : Kimball is
situated in the centre of over 3,000 miles
of rich agricultural country , and is tlio
only town in said agricultural country.
This whole tracl is being rapidly settled
by responsible and influential families
Irom llio east. Kimball is the only railroad -
road ccnh-o nn-l - trai - -poVnt for all
these ' oplo. It will be a town of 1,000
inhabitants before January 1. 1887. If
you want a free home or : i location for
any ot the following business enterprises ,
actatonco : Flouring mill , canning fac
tory , bank , hardware store , agricultural
implements , barber shop , harness shop ,
livery barn , more stoics. Wo can sup
port enterprises of all kinds. Woynn "
lawyers , land agents , carpenters p.ncl men"
of all legitimate trades Tiel vocations.
Wholesale ( .tores coi''u just as well flour
ish hero us not. Last year demonstrated
bevo.ni1 successful contradiction tlio
fact that the soil will raise as good or
bettor crops of all kinds as in tiny other
part of the state. The country is rapidly
scttlintr , and Kimbull will bo llio town.
