Morgan county, to succeed the late
judge, H. E. Neville, and will hold
the office until Dec. 31st, 1014.
This was probably Hadley's last
"What did Mel pay for the office?"
Oh, we don't suppose he paid any
thing; il he did. somebody else put
up the cash. It is true that he could
very well afford to pay a goodly sum
for the job, getting it as" he did, for
he was saved the worry and loss ol
time and expense incurred by his op
ponent, J. W. McClelland, in the pri
mary campaign of 1910. reaping
where Mc had strewn. Oh, say Sally,
politics is funny!
Who owns the Stand-pat Republi
cans of Morgan County? It steins
the appointments all come from
Kansas Citv. first the appointment of
postmaster by Maj. Warner, despite
the endorse'mcnt of the county com
mittee. Frank A. White, chairman, the
congressional committee, state lead
ers of Jefferson City, and the petition
of a big majority of the patrons of the
office ; second, the appointment of
probate judge, through Kansas City
influence, filtered down. Such jug
gling and trickery.
Hie sad and untimely death of
Judge Neville gives us I. M. Schan
nep as a citizen foi two years more.
He had decided to lea'e Versailles,
as-he told our collector, who was gtt
ting up the ainonnt due tor 1912. to
discontinue his copy of the Rki'UM.i

We don't (juite understand where
Napier 'got on at" in the Schannep
appointment. From what we can
learn Mr. Napier .rent to Frank White
without Schannep's knowledge, af
terward calling Schannep in consulta
tion and getting his consent, and this
opinion we got from the fact that
Schannep, when an attempt was made
just before Hadley quit, to have him
withdraw his application, refused,!'
saving that he had not made appli
cation, so had nothing to withdraw.
Was it for love of Schannep (hardlv)
or hatred ol McClelland" (not likely)
that Napier took this matter up and
I pushed it through' He had an ob
iject. Maybe he had a preference as

What do you suppose Frank White
cares for the Republican party of
Morgan County? What do you sup
pose F. M. Fapier cares for the Re
publican party of Morgan County?
What does I. !vl. Schannep care
for the Republican party of
Morgan County? Not two hoots
in Huo'ersville. A little cheap
power, a cheap office or two, and
what may be secured from a confid
ing public, satisfies some folks.
It may lie that Schannep got John
.A. Hannav. a eood Democrat, te use
.. .,, wifh c,fp
'Roach to sign his commission. This
I would have been a splendid oppor
tuniiy for John A. to even up to some
extent for Mel's help in electing him
(John A.) as county collector two
terms, and putting the Republican
party of Morgan County in a hole so
deep it can never crawl out.
How many Republicans asked for
the appointme.it of I. M. Schannep
as probate judge? and what was Mc
Clelland's vote for that office in 1910?
then ask Mr. While why he made a
fool of Hadley in the appointment?
How would you like to belong to
the Republican standpat conglomer
ation of Morgan county, owned and
controlled by Walter S. Dickey of
Kansas City vide Frank A. While, f
M. Napier, I. M. Schannep, et al.
and worse? Come out of the Baby
Ion and enroll with the 1'rogressive
Party. Better be right than steal an
office. Ask Taft, although he lost
both the mess of pottage and the
presidency. And sometimes with
the office gained and honor lost, the
rat e is hardly worth the effort. In
(piire at home in 1914.
Honesty in politics is the best pol
icy, just as it is in any other line of
business'. We would advise the

Democrats and Republicans, to try it

J. W. McClelland and Representative

which one should have the otlice,

If you st iv with the standpatters
you may expect all you get. and you
will sure get all that's coming to you
and then some.
Wonder if Hadley wab fool enough
to think thai White. Napier and
Schannep could do anything for him
in his race for the U. S. Senatorship
in 1916? Well, you know there are
natural born fools, and then there are
just the plain kind. In which class
And now, brethren, having sun-

we could we find it a tempest in a
teapot, ! rank White held spite at H.
A. Youiie. chairman of the County
RepublicanrCommfttee, and this was
his opportunity to hit Youug, and he
hit him. Then, again, it is probable
that White wanted to giv Young a
dose of the same kind that Warner
gave him. and thus show Young what
it felt like to he all flattened out by a ,
fellow higher up. The Schannep
gang had their plans all laid and work
practically done two or three days be
fore Judge Neville died ; McClelland 1
had decency enough to wait until 'the
