The attention of Fred II. Kowe.
chairman of the republican state
committee, having lx-en called to the
charpe made by Judpe I- Y.. Sher
man in a . recent Chicago interview
that he had no access to the republi
can press bureau, causes Mr. Kowe to
give out the following statement, to
day: "In making his statement
Speaker Sherman either willfully
misrepresented the facts or else he is
woefully ipnornnt of the scope and
puroses of the republican press bu
reau. Governor Yates" address at
Lincoln is not in the hands of the
republican press bureau, and will not
oe for the purposes feared by Mr.
SheYman. While it Is true that the
republican press bureau has support
ed and defended Gov. Yates adminis
tration, it has just as loyally sup
Mirteil every other branch of the
state service for which the republi
can party is responsible, every state
official lieinp warmly commended as
occasion ftirose for such commenda
tion. The bureau has studiously re
frained from taking part in factional
pditHs or in building up this or that
machine. On the contrary, it has on
more than one occasion criticised the
tendency in this direction, and urged
party harmony ami t'oncerted efforts
toward the accomplishment of the
desired end. the supremacy of the
republican party anil the mainten
ance of republican principles in state
"This being the purpose and xd
icy of the republican press bureau. I
assume that Speaker Sherman has no
reasiMi to fear the consequences to
him of any matter supplied by this
bureau, and that his appeal to the
country press to protect him from
the partisan bias of the press bu
reau is not , prompted by the same
conciliatory ami high-minded pur
pose. "While it is true that C. M. Tinney.
manager of the press bureau, is n
loyal and faithful friend of Gov.
Yates, r? is also true he is a support
er and friend of Senator Culloin. and
was that gentleman's recognized re
resentative on the advisory hoard of
the press bureau during the late cam
paign. "But. after ail.. I Wlieve that I Scan
say that the claim will be sustained
by the republican country press of
the state that in his. capacity as
manager of the press bureau, in the
employ of the republican state com
mittee. Mr. Tinney can le depended
upon to put party alnite personal
friendship and , measures above men.
In conclusion it may le said that in
addition to his dut's as manager of
the press bureau Mr. Tinney has cr
formed the duties of the secretary
of the committee and under its di
rection among other thinps has
taken up the matter of straightening
out the tangle in the different sena
torial and congressional committees
growing out of the reapportionment
of the state by the last legislature.
As long as Manager Tinney is run
ning a republican press bureau he
can le trusted not to exploit any
democratic reforui movements,
though carefnlly nursed by Steaker
Sherman. Nor will he. however much
it may displease. Speaker Sherman,
give space to attacks made on repub
lican administration, republican or
ganization or republican leaders,
state or national."
Onlookers may contemplate this
throwing of words and facts between
the two machine leaders in. Illinois
wilh pleasure. 'Ihere can 1e but one
result the extinction of loth Sher
man and Yates and the clarification
of methods employed by the men who
make appointments to loards in con
trol of the state's institutions. Any
thing that will tiring about that most
desirable end is worthy of hearty
commendation. As long as Messrs.
Yates and Mirrman care to show
what treacherous friends they were
of the merit system bill introduced
in the last legislature the public can
only applaud. Seaker Sherman us
serts that the governor kept the bill
for over two months and then per
mitted a consideration eight days lie
fore adjournment of the legislature.
"What could I ilo?" asks Sherman.
"What could I do?" echoes Yutes.
F.itner or both could have secured
the passage of the measure if he hail
been so minded when he had the
Mwer. Neither . wanted the bill to
le enacted into a law that would de
prive, the machine of patronage.- The
governor and tlie speaker of the
house- acting together '-could have
sent the measure through as fast as
parliamentary rules Mrmitted.
From over'ia Missouri comes the
suggestion on the part of the St.
Uuis Republic that "Illinois is grad
ually wnkitjg up to. the fact that too
much reform dust has been thrown
in the eyes nf voters heretofore by
the republican lenders in that state.
The deeds of Mr. Yates do not sipiare
with his promises. The actions of
Mr. Sherman as speaker do not come
up to the standard of his present-day
professions. An elimination- of the
entire administration is the only vray
J to condemn humbug in politics."
It was arly fall In the Pondre val
ley, the garden spot of Colorado. The
Jusek ranch npread out its broad acres
to au ever siuiling sky. The champion
"spud gang" of the valley bad set up
its camp and liegun the harvesting of
the thousand acres of potatoes on tbe
ranch. The camp paraphernalia con
sisted of a cookhouse, a long board
abanty on wheels which sheltered tbe
culinary oierationi of the camp dur
ing the day and tbe placid slumber of
the .Widow McCarthy, the cook and
proprietress, at night.
Outside the cookhouse tbe jotato
pickers were lounging away the noon
hour In various attitudes of relaxation.
The cook's ample form appeared at the
door occasionally and her rich brogue
minsled with tbe buui of conversation
which arose among tbeilckers.
"Read that ag'ln. Bill that piece in
the paper aliout tbe price of spuds,"
said one of the men.
"Twant nuthln cept that early

on his elliow and lent a listening ear
toward the .ciKtkhouse: then, reassured
by the clatter of dishes, jerked, his
tbuuib expressly in the directlou of tbe
sound as be turned to tbe gang "she's

Bill ended with a long, low chuckle and
gazed out over the broad ranch.
Significant glances were exchanged
by the potato pickers during tbe next
few days, and Bill's operations at the
sorting machine and bis brief con

as he started out on one of the endless
rows, turning up tbe ii)o!low earth and
the great, smooth potato which only
Colorado can produce. Behind him
came a score of pickers, who gathered
the potatoes in baskets and iourcd
them into the sorting machine run by

huge needle and a hall of niauila twine.

The Job wa finally concluded and

The old man was ready.
"Just back your teams up here and
get a couple of men to help you load
'em," be said.
They backed up to tbe cnll cellar, as
ftbe astute BM had expected. Half a
dozen of the potato pickers sprang with
alacrity to Bill's assistance and the
wagons were soon piled high with
sacks, each bearing a jaunty liowknot
of manila twine.
"Se them 'ere lows, Jusek," called
Bill, as they drove by tbe bouses, where
the old man stood rubbing bis hands
