Then came the election of

the Kepublican-Press last week
made the assertion that Mr. Hales
did not suppurt Prof. Chambers.
This, also, is untrue. This
spring the ring put Atkeson in
the field for congress again and
when Mr. Hales announced they
at once began their present fight
to discredit him and all his
friends simply because they are
opposed to the ring.
This gave them an opporucity
to make known the fact that they
were whipped in the selection of
a post-master at Hutier. The
ring man Fox was beaten by
Clark Wix through the support
of the people and Mr. Wix receiv

three townships when the com-

Clark Wix is not perniciously
active in politics, as the only
thinij against him is that he has
expressed an opinion and every
American citizen is proud of the
fact that that is our right, no
matter what office is held.
The real object is revenge pure

This last week the Republican-
Press made the statement that
the Tribune knew that Atkeson
did not sign the charge against
Clark Wix. We do know, though
that Mr. Atkeson sent a letter
with the charges and mailed
them to headquarters.
Atkeson was one of the bolters
to Kerens against Niedringhaus
in the senatorial fight and bolted
the Bates county delegation at
the state convention in St. Lrui
this year. That is the record of '

As one result of the pohtiesi J

Rate cour.ty, charge Live been
! preferred against Postm&Ateri
CUrk Wix of Rutler. It Is &!..'. 1
that Wix has been too attite in J
politics. Of the charges, the Rep-j
ubhcaa Press of Rztler says:
"The charges are serious and
the men back of taem are isosi?

and active Republicans in Dates

cans wiio are backing the char-
ges against Wix are Atkeson
men. and, as Atkeson. pcs as
