The intense anxiety oi the Republican's to return Ingalls, is more than balanced by the interests of the people in the election' of his successor. While outside the state Ihere is scarcely less interest on both sides. Kansas having -so long held her record gcod as a republican strong hold, npw so battered and demolished by the late election; together with the republican pef eats in other localities; creates a feeling of desperation on the part of the Rep. party nationally, to redeem Kansas by the return of the idol of modern republicanism; while the hope inspired in the ranks of La-por by recent victories by the people of Kansas, causes a (deep interest among the masses his defeat.

To day, all over the couutry, the question is being asked by all parties, "Who $rill Kansas send to the U. S.

eyes are up: on Kansas. Upon a wise selec tion rest much of the hope and fate of the people's movement in '02; and their gain by representation in the U. S. Senate. The recent victories have brought to the front a host of demagogues poising as reformers, with their eyes upon a fat office; while almost every little connty Alliance paper presents some candidate from their county, whose claims they urge.

The people are terribly in earnest; ana the men they have elected to the legislature fere all pledged to Ism.

Let us then, move onward and upward; not as individuals only, hut as a Nation; by surrounding the people with progressive, rather than retrograding circumstances; through a and natural order governing the conditions of life.
