Tim Campbell Explodes.
New York, March 24. There
was quite a .eceue at the custom
.house here when Congresshian Tim
Campbell and Truman Merriam trilled
on" Collector r.!aoue in- the interets
of his -.constituents. Tle Collector
Vvas'iiot iu a goodhumor and' re
proached both with oavipg oppos d

wheri the Collector" protluced a. letter
from Sunset. Cox. corroborating the
statements of the Collector. The, let

nounced Cox as a liar." . It is thought
the trouble is not over.
Mr. Sylvester H. Brown, treasurer
of Great Bend township, left last
eight to be absent a couple of weeks.
THE MAIL CREW OVERWORKED.
All over Kansas the people are
complaining of defective railway serv
ice. The daily papers fail to reach
their destination before the news is
stale, letters are delayed, and some
times the mails fail to reach at all.
"What is the trouble with the Kan
sas service?" was asked of Mr. Isbeli
who . replied: "The trouble is, that
the employes are overworked and
cannot possibly do the work. This
office for instance, has the same force
that it ' had six years ago. I work
sixteen hours a day and then cannot
get through. I have 135 men and
6,000 miles of road to look after, and
have only one clerk in the office.
Nearly every mailing clerk that goes
out f here is overworked. Take the
Santa Fe service as an example.
Every train takes out from eight to
ten tons of mail. All this has to be
assorted and distributed en route and
it is impossible with the present facili
ties to get the work done. Every
dav mail is carried by and taken to
the end of the route and thrown ofl
on the return trip. This is not alone
the case on the Santa Fe. The same
condition of things exist on all Kan
"Whose fault 13 it that more ample
tacilities are not provided?"
"No one's in particular. The mat
ter can only be improved by order of
the Postmaster Genernl upon recom
mendation of the chief of the'railway
The truth seems to be that the post
office department fails to realize the
remarkable development which is go
ing on .in Kansas Congressman
Peters once said in tb3 hearing of a
Star reporter that it was almost im
possible to convince' the postoffice de
partment-of 'the necessity of the new
postoffices which were being asked for
in this' district. "This same lack of
ability to comprehend the rapidity of
the development of the west seems to
be at the bottom of the defective mail
service in Kansas. If the authorities
H)iiM be compelled to read the Kansas
exchange, they would very soon real
ize that the Kansas railway mail serv
ice is decidedly unsatisfactory to the
Kansas people. K. C. Star.
The Democrats have always been
called thieves. "While we are not pre
pared to substantiate this statement,
we know the- editor of the Great Bend
Democrat is an item thief. lie takes

The Journal is too severe. "We feel

The foregoing we quote from the
Register of yesterday. Our only reason
for quoting the article in question -is
that, as we presume, it first appeared
in the Daily Graphic and nearly a
week later was copied into the Demo
crat. If the defense offered ry our
contemporary is sincere our hearty
thanks are due, and we extend them;
but if the whote thing is ironical, the
the latter part of our answrer will apply
to both. The article alluded to was
told us first by a "Wichita "drummer and
was in regard to a set of "Wichita
"greenies"' who attempted to scare an
old man from Covington, Ky. "Whether
the Wichita Journal ever published a
similar story we cannot depose, as each
copy of that paper received at this
office goes, unread, to fill the "aching
void" of our waste basket. Our only
regret in penning this article is that we
are compelled to break a pious precept
taught us by a sainted mother, never to
strike an idiot nor answer a fool.
The Rhode Island Democrats have
nominated John W. Davis for gov
ernor on a platform indorsing the
national administration, and declaring
in favor of so amending the laws of
the state as to provide reasonable
rules for the acquirement and exer
cise of the right of the elective fran
chi.e; o prevent and punish bribery;
to provide schools for the education of
children, particularly those engaged
in labor,' including those speaking a
foreign language. Topeka Democrat.
