Washington, Oc' 3.-An important decision regarding the manner of making proof on homestead applications, under the net of May 28, 1800, was rendered by Secretary Noble to day. The question arose on the application of Edwin Bowker to submit to the circuit iourt, in the state of Nebraska, his ilnal proof for a homestead located near Fargo, 8. Dak. Do w ker entered the laid aud resiued upon it as required by law, but being temporarily In NebrasKa, be made application to submit his final proof before u commissioner of the circuit court in that eutu. Ia denying this application the secretary e*y� : The only question involved in this cue is the construction to be placed upon the act Of May 26,1800, that portion of �which prorides 'that the proof of settle-meat, residence, occupation, cultivation, Irrigation or reclamation, the affidavit or non alienation, the oath of allegiance and all other affidavits required to bo made under the pre-emption, timber culture and denort land laws may be made before any commissioner of the Unit-d Ntn.tes circuit court, or before the judge or clerk of any court of record oi the county or pariBh in which the lands are situated, and the proof, afll-davit and oath, when so made and duly subscribed, shall have the name force and effect as if made before the register and receiver when transmitted to them and with the fee and cumumsions allowed and required by law. "Was it the intent of congress," continues the secretary, "by this act to so far remove the resubmission of the Haul proof from the land desired to be entered as to allow it 'to b� made before any commissioner of the I'mted Htatea circuit court' in the United Urates, no matter how remote he might reside from the land; or was it only the ititeut to provide an additional officer before whom proof might bo submitted? While at firut view the words of this act might seem to authori/.e the makiDg of proof before any commissioner of the United StateBciiOuit court beyond the limits of the state or territory in which the land it* situated, yet 1 have concluded, after an analysiHof the question, that the act will not beur that interpretation. It appears it huti bveu the constant policy of the law to require claimants under prior laws to go before the local officers in making proof. The Obvious purpose of Hub policy is to secure the proper and convenient examination of the matters submitted, and an intention to abandon this policy should not be imputed to congress. If this statute in question authorizes a claimant to make his proof before any commissioner or in any part of the United State?, it reverses the settled policy of congreBB in that regard, I and nothing in tholiiatory Of the act to warrant this construction." The secretary then quotes extensively from the reports of the house and senate committees on puulic lands regarding this law, end concludes that the purpose of the enactment was simply to designate an additional or new officer before whom the proofs could be taken, and not to change Sn any manner the provisions denning the place for making the proofB, The "People'*" Fatty Repudiated. JTrom the Parsons ttivn. The Southern Kantian Farmer is an eight page, six column weekly Journal published at Uherry vale, in Montgomery county, and is, as its name implies, de voted particularly and generally to the farming interests of the state, but it re pudiatea the bo-o tiled "People's" party movement and sharply and decisively criticises the demagogues who are at the head of that organization. Its editor is a member of the Alliance and his exposure of the workings of the political leaders of the Alliance will have great Influence with the houeBt and intelligent members of the organization. Heferring to the new political party the Farmer ��>� "In this state the Itepublican party is in the majority, and as the Alliance operating here is a branch of the southern Alliance, where the brethren decline to go outside their party, it IB reasonable to suppose that the Itepublican farmers of KauBaa would desire ts 'labor in a nonpartisan spirit,' and work through their party. Ho man can say truthfully that the Itepublican party in the north would not do as much for the farmer and labor-ing classes aa the Democratic party of the south. If there be such he not .expose his ignorance by making the declaration. But instead Of rinding the same conditions in Kinsas . as in the south we are confronted with a separate political party, conceived, j!�owd, organised ana put In operation fcehlad bjlied doors. Uuforludataly this condition of things aroee because three or four unscrupulous and designing demagogues secured control of the Alliance and converted It into a secret political party." The Parmer then pays its respects to the offloe'Seeking gang of patriots in this fashion: "So back to the early organisation of the Alliance in Kansas and who Jo you find in the saddle? WesnBwer.thatself-saortflclng patriot, B. H. Clover. Where la ben aw? A candidate for congress in this district on what he assumes to call a 'Mople'a tlokoV Aud this very man de v dared less tkin three months ago that he was �� not candidate for any office and would notpmiult his name to be used, because, he said, he could not afford to Sara Itsald that he was an oflloe seeker. So ow Into the Seventh distriot and you Trill find that spotless patriot, Jerry fflmPsonTaBOther leader, a candidate for Zn�Zi�. Hoi* the man who registered it** Wtoftita hotel M 'Jerry Simpson, �itirtiilHyr*" list have secured a nomination for office, and in their endeavor to delude (he people and to cover up their own shys-tering demagoguery they cry out and denounce our officials, no matter how honest faithful and worthy. They howl about rlngB, while they compose one of tbe must corrupt rings in Kansas. They are in a ring for office and their only hope is to delude the farmers and blind their eyes long enough to secure a hold of the publio teat, which by reason of their unfitness and unwortblneBB they have been unable to secure at the hands of either the Republican or Democratic parlies." Referring to the fact that their bo called leaders advise memberB of the Alliance organization to remain away from political meetings held by the old parties, aud ti r j.-.d uotbing coming from the old par-tie*, the Alliance editor Bays: It is only a bad cause that won't bear investigation. The new party agitators urge their followers not to attend political meetings of other parties. How re diculoue. Uow un-American. How like southern bulldozing. Uow disgusting to true men. How unholy a cauBe that will not stand investigation. It in an acknowledgement that ihey are wrong and fear investigation. The intelligent farmers of IfanBas are not made of that kind of material. Such sentiments may do in countries where ignorance, anarchy, communism, superstition and serfdom prevails, but in America, where the government depends upon the intelligence of the people, it won't be tolerated. Kansas farmers are not yet ready to be considered serfs and illiterate slaves, bound to obey the comm mils of "triangles" and worship at the shrine of some secret order, No, gentlemen, when yon make your threats, as did your man Folk, that you carry the farmers' vote in your vestpocaet and command them not to attend public political meetings, where principles of governmental policies are discussed, you are talking to the wrong tueii. The pure air of Kansas don't breed that kind of politicB. Through the papers and by public discussion tbe people are made in telligent voters. It iB the duty of every good citizen to inform bimBelf." The editor of the Farmer is a member of VMeiBant Hill Alliance, and tbe enthusiastic support he is receiving from members of sub Alliances is a true indication that there ore many others of like convictions, with more to hear from. state election in November, 18G2; againas a Itepublican, and as a Republican he held this office until 1868, when he was defeated for a renomination by Judge D. M. Valentine. He at once, and while Btill associate justice of the supreme court of Kansas, his term not haviug expired, became a candidate for a member of the house from Douglas county, and was elected as a republican, lie left the supremo court bench and took hia seat in the house of representatives in Jaioary, 18(59 After this he engaged in biiBiness of one kind and another for several yearp, taking but little part in political affairs. Having held office by virtue of Republican votSB as long as the Republican party in Kansas would honor him with such, he is found on the committee of credentials in the G reenback state con vention at Wjandotte in September, 1877.

From the Topeka .lournsl. lion. W, J. iluchan, chairman of the Republican Btnto central committee, returned from the east last night, having been absent two weeks on committee business. His principal object in going was to stir up Senators Plumb and Ingalls and the Kansas congressmen and get them into the canvasB at the earliest possible moment and sIbo to secure through them some distinguished speakers from abroad. He succeeded admirably in his mission. Senator Ingalls will ar rive in Kansas next Sunday. It is expected that he will attend the state reunion in this city, at least on the day of the president's visit, and he will then take the Btump and make a vigorous canvass until election day. Senator Plumb will arrive a few days later, probably in time to attend the re union on the big day. He, too, will enter the canvass. The Kansas congressmen will arrive borne this week or tbe first of next, and will whoop it up in their respective districts until election day. Chairman Buchan sIbo succeeded in securing two distinguished speakers from abroad. Senator William B. Allison of Iowa and Senator Shelby M. Oullom of Illinois. Both have positively promised to take part in the Kansas campaign. Senator Allison will deliver three speeches in the state, date and places not yet determined upon, and Senator Oul lorn will let tbe committee know in a few days how much time he can arrange to spend in Kansas. When Chairman Buchan went east, the campaign bad just opened and the organization was not perfect or working smoothly. In the hurry to get the ball to rolling several meetings were appointed and speakers billed without their having been positively engaged. As a result, several meeting were failures and there was more or less confusion. He returns, however, to find that the executive committee and the secretary and assistant secretary, with some efficient outside help, have straightened matters out, putBpeakera in the Held, engaged others and planned a vigorous, systematic and thorough campaign covering every county in the state and every town and city except a few county seats. QUITE FUNNY. Democrats Trying to I'alm Off Judge Bailey as a lieputilloan. From tbe Tojioks Capital. Tbe great scare headlines of the Kansas City Timet of yesterday announcing that Judge L. D. Bailey of Garden City, had renounced the Republican party and was supporting Governor Robinson made the politicians around Topeka smile very loud. Judge Bailey, as almost every one knows, has not been a Republican for nearly fifteen years. His polltloal record is about as follows: He came to Kansas in the summer of 1858. About the first thing he did after coming to Kansas was to become a candl date for office and he was elected that fall as a member of the territorial home of representatives. In October, 1890, he was nominated by the state Republican convention that met in Topeks, tor tbe office of associate justice of tbe supreme court, and thus became the first assooUvte Justice Gen.

The quotations are from an almanac for the year 1815 and read as follows: March-There will be a great dearth of things of general interest in this month Such dearths produce negative happiness, but the mind is apt to sink into lethargy. To prevent Buch an effect there will probably now be more quarrels, much wrangling .between man and wife, many breaches of friendship and much dispute about ministers and schoolmasters.

There will be great changes in our political concerns thiB year, or else the nation will sink into a lethargy, Cocttades and feathers more in use than brains.

The cause of agricultural depression in tho United -States is that tho farmers produce more than can be used at homo. This surplus must bo sold abroad. The price at which the surplus is sold abroad fixes tho price of the home prixluct. Tho farmer sells at the prico tised in New York, les-s the cost of carrying the product to New York and less the commissions.

To dream of falling into a hole in the ground means coming danger. To dream of putting out fire indicates a reconciliation with an enemy. To dream of a field of corn that has been mined by u storm presages bankruptcy. To dream of thirst or to dream of seeing food without eating of ft means sickness. To dream of standing in the midst of growiug cropB indicates the greatest prosperity financially. To dream of dropping anything made of gold means the loss of friends, while to find or pick np this metal is a gain of friends. On the sea coast dreaming of flsb meanB receipt of money, the quantity of money being In proportion to the number and size of the llsh. To dream of finding much money of any kind Is lucky, but if u few pennies onlynro picked up bard luck la certainly in ttore tor the dreamer. To dream of a wedding means disappointment in love nifiiirs; so, too, does a woman's dream of kissing n woman or a man's dream of kissing u man. To dream of barking dogs means a re pulsion of enemies,, ami, in fuct, tho appearand* of a dog in a dream in any Bhape, even though it appears to bite the drenmer, presages good luck. To dream of passing the contribution box and receiving liberal donations is a euro sign of getting a hatful of money, but If little or nothing Is received that is a sign of very bad luck indeed. To dream of anything pertaining to a funeral means that one will soon see distant relatives, unless it ia of funeral services In a church, in which case the dreamer will surely attend a wedding.

In on address recently delivered at Broken Bow, Neb., W. H. Thompson niado the following statements: 'Commencing with tho grant of 12,-000,000 acres to the Union Pacific Railway company in 1863, the government continued the grants to corporations until the grand total of 135,803,000 acres had been, as far as the state or individual was concerned, squandered. While wo have been sympathizing with down trodden Ireland and assisting her in her fight against English landlord oppression there has been built up in our midst a landed aristocracy greater and more dangerous than Ireland's worst foe. Twenty million acres of the ".foresaid squandered .amis are new owned by twenty non-resident landlords, and to further increase the similarity of tho class legislation of tho same party we have more evictions than Ireland ever dreamed of.
