Dkak Silt: I write j ou from this patt
of the moral vineyard to iiiformyou how
the good work goes on in Hamilton coun
ty. We are organizing all over the coun
ty, bic working in perfect harnion, aud
are sure to win here. Wc have a full
county ti(k--t in the field composed of
good, honest, competent men, wLo are
hard at work every day and will be until
the polls close ou election day. e arc
hfllu-r iijeelings in all pnrts of the coun
ty aud the people arc thoroughly aroused.
We were favored with very fine address
es at Syracuse, Coolidge. Kendall and
our own school house, by Messrs. Cal
houn aud Ariz, who aie holding big meet
ings wherever they go. They show the
people that this is not a fight between
parties, but for principle. They are mak
ing converts by the scores every where.
We will give Mr. Calhoun a handsome
majority in Hamilton against both the
other uominpes for distnet judge, and wc
are satisfied that he will be elected. TQe
fight is between him and Judge Abbott,
and the people want no more probation
whisky cases, Gregory cases, county seat
cases, and long and expensive litigation
without results. I am sure their votes
will show this on election day. We hear
good tidings from all along the line.
Keep up the good work. We have them
on the run, and success is sure to crowu

To Whom It May Concern:
It having come to my notice that cer
tain statements have been published in
two ot the newspapers published in
Dodge City, namely The Dodge City
Times aud Democrat, with u view to iu
juriug C. M. Beeson in his candidacy for
the office of sheriff of Ford county and in
connection with a picnic I gave at my
farm In Wheatland township in Ford
county on October 8th, 1891, I wish to
make this statement with reference to the
During last year I bought a large farm
a section of land in Wheatland town
ship in the German settlement. 1 em
ployed Germans to look after tbe place
during the past season. For a nu'nber
of years, as many as three or four, it has
been the custom of the Germans in that
neighborhood, to meet at this farm of
mine or in the neighborhood, and have
an annual picnic. My people had raised
large crops and asked mc to join them in
having a picnic at my farm.
I most cheerfully did so and made full
preparations for our picnic on the 8th, by
procuriug such refreshments as I thought
would be acceptable tn my neighbors
there. I bought it and paid for it myself
sent it to my farm, and then invited such
of my friends, from Kinsley and else
where as I desired to have there, and
among others I invited my friend Beeson
I had two objects in doing this. He is a
candidate for sheriff' I am interested in
the officers of Ford county to some exteut.
and had no doubt he would make a good
And again personally he has done mc
mnnj favors that I felt grateful for aud
I desired him to come over that I might
have an opportunity to introduce him to
my neighbors. Those were the only ob
jects that induced mc to invite him there
I treated him the same as any other guest
and the statements made in the newspa
per articles I have referred to with relcr.
ence to bis having any partnership in the
picnic, or direction of its conduct, are
absolutely and unequivocally false.
He did not put up a cent because he
was not expected or asked to. He had
nothing whatever to say about the ar
rangements of the picnic but was simply
there as my guest. There were probably
one hundred people present at the picnic.
They were all well behaved and conduct
ed themselves decently. No one could
have taken any exceptions to the manner
in which people present conducted them
selves I was so well pleased with it
that I mde up my mind if I am success
ful in my farming in Ford county to re
peat the picnic each year. My friends
will always be welcome there and I trust
they will recive my hospitality in the
same spirit in which it is extended.
C- W. Beeler.
The uboye statement of Mr. Beeler can
be answered best by the quotation of Mr.
Bee-son's own words, and needs no other
comment from us. Some of the demo
cratic candidates, learnlntr of the picnic,
had made preparations to be there,
among tne number, Mr. French, candi
date for sheriff. Mr. Beeson. heariuc of
French's intention of being present, ad-
dressed him as follows: "French, you I
can go down there if you wait tq, but I ,
want you p. understand that this picuic
is giyen for ray benefit." This statement
was made in the presence of J. T. White-'
law. Otto Mueller, 3. W. Hicks and oth- i
ers, and it was from them The Times' i

The human race must quit movingi
Eugland and Uun-jary arc taking steps
to stop the influx of aliens, the United
States, having set the example by shutr
tingout the Chinese. After they get
that end closed up, will they leave the
other eud open? If they do, other coun
tries will begin to keep out aliens. And
then, as we said before, tbe human
race must stop moving. The right war
for aliens to do is to keep dropping into
a good country in small bodies, as if
they were just coming to find a home
not in hundreds of thousands annuallv,
as if they meant to take the good coun
try by storm. And the right way for
old world oppression to d.Q is to quit
driving out people from the iand of their
birth in such numbers, and with such
unseemly haste, that it is evident the
unfortunate victims are litendly fleeing
tor tneir lives.
In this money-making, money-loving
age the -study of homo comforts and
amusement Is sadly neglected. Young
America scarcely knows the meaning
of the word home, because-the little de
vices that cheer and ornament the fam
Uy abode are never considered. The
lighting of a homo is an important
feature in the winter time. The wax
candle shedding its pure light oyer a
silver candelabra will never bo sur
passed by lamp, gas or electric globe.
We have a memory of a plantation
Christmas dinner where table and dining-room
were decked out in pine tops,
the long, glistening green needles mak
ing fantastic display against the pure,
spotless damask, and beneath burnished
silver plate; in the luxury of candle
light and the brilliant flame of fat
light wood, which gave forth a whole
some odor of rosin, and burnt a blue
and pink flame over the hickory logs,
we forgot the cold outside, the
somber moaning pine forests, the hoot
ing owl there was a summer in our
