No. there can't be any grafting in
Old Christian county. The Demo
crat charged $277.17 for publishing
the ballot, and the Republican $16tf.-j
f2 for publishing and printing ballots.
Mrs. K.'s t.ommcnt was: "Well,
they might as well have it, if they
didn't get it. the county officials
would." We find by our book that
in 1001 we published the ballot and
printed IJU.OOO tickets for S200,
about half the present price, but then
everything you know has gone up, yet
we hold that with the Morgan County
Rf.puiii.ican eliminated Morgan County
would be paying about the same price
as poor old Christian wait until we
get back to Nina.
The anti-suffrage women ol St
I.ouis are organizing to fight the suf
frage movement, presumably in be
half ol the distilleries and breweries
ol that great (?) city, for they will go
out of Missouri when the women vole.
Stover and Harnett are a stand-off
on Progressive vote, (50 each, and
with organization they will give twice
or thrice that number next timi.and
all the other precincts will show the
progressive spirit, even Versailles,
with its pitiftd 27 this time, (so noted
for its political cowards), will get out
of the graft class, and vot'er right.
According to the official court in
Kansas, Hedges, Democrat candi
date for governor, wins by HI major
ity over Capper, the Progressive-Re
publican candidate another case of
trying to ride two horses at once go
ing in different directions. That's
how Stubbs lost out.
FOR A POSTOFFICE PRIMARY.
.Now that the election is over and
Wilson has been elc ted president
we understand that a number of ap
plicants for the Windsor postmaster
ship have declared themselves, wheii
the tune of the present incumbent, A.
11. Cole, has expired.
We believe that the position ot
postmaster in any community belongs
to the people in a greater degree than
almost any other position. They are
probably more vitally interested and
more intimately connected with the
administration of the local postoflke
which serves them every day in the
year, than wilh any other office.
We believe that the question oi
what democrat shall fill the position
of postmaster for Windsor should be
left to the decision of democratic
patrons of the office to be decided in
an election held for that purpose.
Why should not the people say who
shall be their postmaster? This is
pure democracy the rule of the peo
pleand it should prevail. Windsor
A primary would be proper, but
the Democrats will probably follow
the Republican way of doing, and as
hey themselves did under Cleveland,
give the offices to the fellows who did
he dirty work, and the most of it.
Maj. Warner appointed a postmaster
for Versailles, despite the protest of
nine - tenths of the patrons. Why
... ... ... a
of Versailles, or of Morgan county,
have such power? Hope the Demo
crats of Versailles will determine the
postmastership by a primary, else the
change may be no improvem ent, fo
some of the would-be candidates arc
THE REASON WHY
WOMEN SHOULD VOTE-
1'ir.st Jlecause it is right This
country is founded on the principle that
taxation without representation is tyran
ny, that it is a government of the people,
for the people and by the people, and
that it exists by the consent of the govern
ed. Women pay taxes, they are n port,
one third, UJ.OOO.OtX), of the people,
and are governed.
Secoiied IT is time our women
cciiscb to he ceased in public affairs with
infants, idolb, aliens and felons.
Third There are seven million
j working women tu the t'ntted States,
about one third ot the womenhood ot
the nation; they are entitled to have a
voice in framing the laws that affect the
conditons under which they work.
fourth liqual suffrage would ele
vate the character of the electorate,
Ily giving women the vote, you increase
the native born vote, you increase the
moral vote, you increase the intelligent
vote. Two-thirds of the immigrants are
men, two-thirds of chinch-goers are
women, less than 1 per cent of th se in
the jails in California are women.
I-"if til I Ttittl Women are given the
vote a repescutative form of government
has not been fully tried in the I'nited
States, and much that we have failed to
accomplish may be.attributed to that fact
Sixth Women have suffrage in every
other Kuglish speaking country anil in
many other lands Women have suffrage
in some form in twenty-eight state of ihe
Seventh This is a laud ot liberty ,of
boasted political freedom, ami it is a
displace and not fair that one third of
the people be denied a voice in the
government simplv because ot sex.
Kight Giving Women a note is a success.
Starting in this country in Wyoming,
it has spred to adjoining states, whose
men could tell bow equal suffrage work
ed among their neighbors
Ninth If women hud suffrage it would
increase their interest in civic affnits hiiiI
mothers would teach their clnldicn to
become bettor citiaus.
Tenth llccause the worst elements in
the community are opposed to it

BREWERY OR THE SHOE FACTORY,
Wards brewn in I,' wrence, Kan
was a valuable piece of property. 1'rnhibi
lion made it useless for purpose, and the
owner sold the building and left that
state. This lumen the twelve men he
employed out of that into some other in-
itidustry.Som t people called it "a busi
ness calamity" to lose that brewery and
the wages of the twelve men it had
employed. Hut soon the big building was
put to use again as a shoe factory, and
now, with about the same capital, that
brewery had, it employs one hundred
sober operatives. Supposing the brew
er's twelve men to have been all sober
citizens, let us compare "the buisness
record of the brewcrv and the shoe
factory .allowing that the men have the
same wages, which we will put at an
average of ten dollars a week.
The brewer's men had their SI20 a
week, or 1,41- 'ear to expend in house
rent for home,, food, clothing, ami
household needs. The one hundred shoe
markers have f 1,000 a week or Jt$2,(MX) a
year to cxdend in the same way. The
brewry men rented at most twelve cott
ages. The factory men must have one
hundred cottages or lodgings,
Under the new system the builders,
butcher, bakers, grocers, clothiers, etc.,
of the town have one hundred customers
gained in nlace of the twelve they have
lost, besides ii large amount of money
from other customer.-, that formerly
