We can nil roineiulier that It Is over

of faithful courtiers iisseinlilo In n
closely guarded room nnd dolornilno

looted and countod out many days be

Ijosscs are there. Tho temporary
chairman knows tho next man that1
Js to make a motion and looks in his
direction when tho timo comes for
tho motion assigned to him Is to ho
oiudo. Tho Innocent, but verdant,
patriot from tho ranks from tho runil
districts, applauds what ho bcllovos
, to bo tho voloo of tho pooplo and
therefore tho voice of God. Ho may
"be a first class statesman at tho cross

first deal In tho game of politics with
'Ah Sin of Hutchinson. It is not
much less than twenty years slnco
tho court houso ring assumed the
Kuardlanshlp of tho republican party
and they will continue to do so until
a reform movement IssulJIcIently pow
erful to root them out. Jf tho rural
tenderfoot could .hoar tho boasting of
tho city bosses u short time, before
convention day, ho would learn for
tho first timo that lilsstandlngln the
party Is that of a faithful follower
and a never failing dupe.
Sam I'orahu was made temporary

where, tho fanners wero considered
eminently capablo of doing that and
wore let In on the delegation in large

were considered so thoroughly capable

Omaha Farmerc' P aper Unjes Altendaitcs at
Hntohlnson Co-operallve Meeting,
To show something of tho Interest
which Is being aroused In tlio mutter
.of co-operative elevators and tho ship
ping of grain, and especially tho
prospect of n largo and important
meeting in this city on March 4th
and 5th, tho following is clipped from
Tho Central Farmer, of Omaha, Ne
braska, concerning our meeting:
"The growth of co-operation in
handling grain by farmers' elevators
Is an astonishing feature of tlio do
velopmcnt of tho trust Idea from the
phase whore a few are the bcncflcln-
rios Into tho broader and better phase
where all producers uro members and
all alike1 aro benefited, It ts also re
markable that Nebraska has given no
attention to tills work while other
states from Oklahoma to North Da
kota and Minnesota aro organizing
and are cither shipping or are prepar
log to do It. Wo are rollably informc
that ono elevator company operating
a lino of elevators in Nebraska made
a profit or dividend of lifty percent
on its investment last year. Of
courso that profit camo by enforcing
a lower rate of payment for grain than
It could afford to pay, and tho 'farm
crs' aro .th6 losors of so much. There
Is small doubt but other grain eom
panics mndo similar profits and that
In the grand total the 'farmers' lutv
lost by tho uctlon of tho grain trust
In Nebraska, will round into millions
of dollars. It is past understand! nu
why, with adjoining states all organ
Izlng for tho interest of tho producers,
Nebraska farmers submissively kiss
tho hand that smites them and fondly
feed tho trust that Rklnsthcin. There
is timo yet for localities to send del
egato to Hutchinson on March 4th to
learn how Kansas Is conducting her
grain shipping to the benellt of her
producers, and preparo to engago In a
similar work here.
"If prompt uctlon Is taken by those
who first read these words, meetings
may be called of a few interested per
sons for Saturday, March 1st, and i
delegato selected and sent to Hutcli-
nson, Kaunas, for tho March 4th
meeting; One and a third faro is
granted by railroads from Nebraska
points as woll as Kansas and Okla
homa stations. Ituy your ticket
throilgh to Hutchinson and take a re
celpt for It. Lot Nebraska be largely
represented at Hutchinson."
Popullit Stat dominating Convention Should
The populist stuto nominating con
vention lias not yet been culled, but
probably will bo within two or three
weeks. If Hutchinson want tho con-
vontlon, and of courso she does, she;
can probably havo It. And Judging
from tho size and enthusiasm of the
convention at Tokeka, it will bo no
small gathering, If the democratic
convontlou la allowed to como off at
Wichita tho populist convention will
not bo taken to that city becauso
there is a big meeting of some lodge
to come off (hero at tlio sumo time
and tho entertaining capacity of the
olty will bo strained without adding
tho populist convention to tho. list
of numerous guests. It Is well un
derstood by all who aro familiar with
thu temper and feeling of tho popu-
iisis or mo siaio ami mo suite com
mittee that tho convention will, be
culled at tho same time as the demo
cratic convention, but on account of
tho abovo mentioned difficulty It will
noi no cancel ror tno same pineo un
less tho democratic convention is
hanged. Ono of tho commit tee re
ports that was submitted to tho con
ference at Topoka recommended that
tho populist convention be held at
either Hutchinson or Topeku. It is
altogether likely- that ono of these
two cities will get tho convention,
with the democratic convention at
Wichita, Hutchinson should have the
scniallves will uppoar to buy In tho
claims when they are sold by legal
process, ana get something off by
managing thus. Howovor, If this Is
tho ease, it Is altogether likely that1
they will go on and finish tho plants
mat navo dpcii given so good a start.

Not Cltnr Yet.
There is something peculiar about
tho legal entanglements of the Shaw
theater. It as understood that the
dllllcultles had been adjusted or at
least disposed of for tho prsescnt.
There have been mechanics' lions, and
liens for seats, aud attachments,
and receivers appointed and dismissed
and so many other coinollcatlons It
has been impossible for anyono but
tho lawyers and Judge that tried the
cases to keep up with developments,
and It may bo seriously doubted if
they havo done It. Now H. White
side has posted n typewritten notice
in front of his ofllco to tho effect that
he as attorney for tho Andrews Op
era company of Chicago, will sell all
tho chairs In the theater to satisfy!
their lien, on March Oth, and givo!
possession of them under the terms
of an order of court dated last Octo
ber. Of courso rlicy will probably be
bought by those who aro now In
charge who aro paying up some'of tho
liens. ' v ,
BE DECIDED SOON.
County Attorney'! tall Against (ho County for
Feai now Untdar Advisement.
Judge Simpson now has the .'case
brought by tho county attorney
against tho county under advisement
and It will probably bo decided by
him at the adjourned session which
ho will hold in this city soon. The
enso was brought to collect Homo fees
for collecting on a bond that had been
forfeited in a liquor case.
It is claimed by tho commission
ers that theso fees aro not allowed un
der tho new law, nnd the claim of the
county attorney Is that this section
is not repealed. Tho county uttorncy
claimed tho right under tho law to
select tho attorney to represent the
county In the controversy, and he
selected Howard Lewis, Tho county
commissioners' however, saw Mr,
Lewis and together hired 11. White-
sido to assist him. . Tlio point in
volved is ono that affects tho fees in
like cases nil over the stato and Is ono
which will eventually go to the su
premo court, all-hough this ono cannot
bo appealed to that court becauso the
iimount Involved Is too small. The
commissioners would' bo. pleased to
havo it go to that court so'us to get
i decision that would stand nslong as
tho law Is on tho statute books. As
a matter of fact it is stated that the
county attorney did not collect tho
fees over which this suit Is brought
at all, but ono of tho commissioners
olleeted thorn himself. However, In
order to test the case this point was
