The union of the Baptist
church, north and south, is a
move in the right direction. Let
us hope that the tendency to

that were divided by the Mason

We call the attention of our old
soldier readers to the pension
decisions in this issue. We have
made arrangements with the
well known firm of pension atty's
Milo B. Stevens & Co., by which
we will publish every two weeks,
such decisions as interest the
old soldiers of this community.
If you are interested in such
decisions, how is the time to sub
scribe. The readers of our city dailies
needn't tear their shirts about
foreigners building the Panama
canal, furnishing the supplies
and crowding out American la
borers. There is "more cry
than wool" in the fuss made over
the matter. The United States
is building the canal, and while
foreigners may furnish some of
the supplies and some of the
labor, Americans will do the
greater part of the business and
reap the greater profit and ben
efit from the whole transaction.
We are in receipt of a neat and
tastefully printed invitation,
from the faculty and the class of
'0r, Baker university, to attend
the commencement exercises,
Thursday, June 1, at Baldwin,
Kan. The university graduates
forty-five bachelors this year.
Twenty-seven of arts, ten of phi
losoph, five of science and three
of literature. Among the nuin-
Ikt of bachelors of arts appears
the na'me of Mr. Cecil Ames of
this city who will graduate with
credit to himself and honor to his
parents and city.
The promotion of Judge Elmer
B. Adams to be United States
Circuit Judge, Kh Circuit, and
the appointment of Cl.A. Fink
elnburg of St. Louis, to succeed
him as District Judge, Eastern
District Missouri, are good ap
pointments. Judge Adams is a
Democrat and a man of unques
tioned integrity and eminently
fitted for the judicial office.
Judge Kinkelnburg is a Repub
lican and a lawyer of the highest
legal attainments and well known
for his honesty and uprightness,

with credit to himself and jus

There seems to bo quite a tem
pest in the Democratic teapot at
Butler, judging from the un
canny compliments the Bates
Count v Democrat and Times are
throwing at each other. The
Times tells the truth, a very re
markable fact, alout the effi
ciency of the Republican organi
zation, but whether it's story
ubout the county Democratic or-
gunization is true or not, we
don't know. Our observation,
however, is that the Democratic
organization is now just as effi
cient us it ever was. The people
are getting their eyes open and
consequently the old party don't
get, the votes it did a few years
ago, und we doubt if they ever
will get them again unless they
mend their ways.

And word came unto the Re
publicans, at Adrian, that Emma
had resigned her Msition that
the Republicans, with the help
of Home Democrats, had elected
her to. And forthwith John
went before King Joe and inter
ceded with Joe and said, () King,
thou knowest that we Democrats
love office, and Joe, thou knowest
how hard we labored to defeat
Emma at the election, with t'ne
Processor, and thou knowest, oh
King, how the Republicans did
work, and how they did defeat
our beloved Democratic party
out of School Superintendent,
that we so dearly hankered after,
It is the loaves and fishes, King
Joe, that we Democrats are after
and oh King, thou hast it in thy
isiwer to grant this request that
I am alstut to make in the name
of Bates county's pure Demo
cracy. And Joe said unto John
what is it that thou wantest?
And John said, oh King, wo pray
thee that thou appoint our defeat
ed Proffessor to the office that
Emma resigned. And forthwith
King Joe hearkened unto the
voice of his children and gave
the Processor the office that the
voters of Bates county said they
did not want him to have. And
now the Democrats aie giving
the Republicans the old fashion

They gathered them up from the

The Times scolds the chair
man of the Bates County Demo
cratic Committee because the
campaign was not opened earlier
last fall. Now, some people
(though certainly not the Times
man) believe that when a cam
paign is "opened" it is important
to keep it "open." Even the
Times knows that if the Demo
crats had opened the campaign
in this county only a little earlier
it would have been impossible to
keep it going. But we suppose
"any old thing" will answer the
purpose of one determined to
"gnaw a file." And, meanwhile
let the Times continue to amuse
itself, even if it does disgust
others, by "toadying" the Bates
county Republican committee,
blind to the plain inference that
if this Republican committee
really is such a marvel of excel
lence and efficiency as the Times
claims, the Democratic commit
tee must have done pretty well
after all considering that the
Times giant is not a member of
it. Bates Co. Democrat.
