The cut throat methods adopt
ed by the Butler ring, including
Atkinson, of trying to injure the
reputation, of their opponents,
have returned home. Usually
this is the ease. U was thought
at first that Atkescn vas inno
cent in the matter and that some
of his followers were causing the
trouble, until Atkeson published
his letter .in the Republican
Press. Then it vas shown that
Atkeson approved and sanction
ed the attacks. We want to mod
ify our statement made last
week. We said that Funk had
beaten Atkeson. Atkeson shows
his approval of Funk methods, so
he is just as much responsible as
Funk. The Tribune up to the
last two weeks has merely been
on the defensive, merely lighting
the dirty campaign methods
used, and it is only in the last
few issues that we have used
We know now that Atkeson
himself finds no fault in the Re
publican Press, and so he is to
There are several things that
have never been explained by
Why did Funk refuse to pub
lish the announcement of Mr.
Why did not Atkeson stay
with the resolutions, written by
himself at the county convention,
when "no went to the state con
vention? It is explained that the charges
against Mr. Wix were written
early last spring. Why were
they not put in then instead of
just ns late tts possible before
Why were the charges put in!
Mr. Funk refused to publish

cat.net recognize the right of
our American system of nomina
tion, and ho is such a careful
business'man that he would not
publish it until Mr. Hales sent
him the cash in advance.
Possibly Funk or Atkeson can
explain why Atkeson did not
stay with the Bates county dele
gation at St. Louis.
The Wix charges were" written
in April and it is hard to explain
why they were held up unless
the Butler gang thought they
would prove good campaign ma
terial later on.
The Kepublican-I'ress has told
that which is false on several oc
casions: It told a falsehood when it said
tl at Mr. Hales did not support
Atkeson two years ago. Mr
Hales did not work for Atkeson's
nomination in fact, was oppos
ed to it, but after the convention
Atkeson was Hales' candidate.
It is a falsehood that Mr. Bales
did not support Frank Chambeis
for school commissioner, for he
It is not so that all the post
masters are for Hales. We
might say, however, that when
the Atkeson forces put the Wix
charges in, a great many of
them did change their opinions
and are now Hales' supporters.
In conclusion, we have failed
to find any place where Atkeson
or any of his supporters have
even been inclined to show the
least bit of fairness in their cam
paign. Every speech, every
statement, every move, has been
intended to lower either Mr,
Hales or his friends in the esti
mation of the people.
Tlie people of the Sixth Con
gressional District do not ap
prove of this method. They are
believers in the idea of a square
deal, and so their candidate will
be John R. Hales.
