When Democrats whine for Re publican votes, give them their own medi cine. Tell them if they don't like the present political adjustment, they can phangeil by voting the Kepiblican ticket. The Republicans of Trego county have nominated a good ticket throughout. Any Republican 7lio bolts it this fall will be ashamed of the act when he hears the martial music of the great political cam paign of 18SR. HORXER'S DISMISSAL. The State Board of Silk Commissioners dismissed the superintendent. Mr. Hor ner, some time ago, and although there has been a good deal of talk about it some of it very ugly, too we do not yet wholly understand the reasons for his dis missal. Mr. Morse, for the Board, pub lished a statement some days ago, de fending their action, and it is to be infer red from his language and the facts he sets forth that there was a difference of opinion between the Board and the su perintendent as to the powers of the Board and the scope of their duties, and that the difference was so radical that the Board believed the State's interests would be better served by the retirement of Mr. Iloruer. We have not had a word from either side personally, and therefore we know only what other persons are saying about Ihe matter. Mr. Horner's friends at Pea body are very inuth out. of humor about it. An indignation meeting wes held, and : local paper says: "Accusations are made that the board of commissioners are, and have been from the first, rotten to the core, and while we have been un able to get at the bottom of the facts, and cannot positively state that such is the case, certain it is that such is the general belief of the public ut large." She commissioners will hardly be wil ling to submit to such a state of public opinion without demanding an official in vestigation or at least without making a very full and complete report to the legis lature. Until the people in general are better informed on the subject, they will not judge anybody harshly. ICaiisas Farmer. Many of our people will remem ber Mr. Horner as giving an exbibi ion of silk reeling in Opera Hall 'one evening last fall. Like the Farmer, we are ignorant of the cause of this trouble, except what we have seen in the papers. One statement in the papers is to the ef fect that the open rupture between the silk commission and the super intendent came about by the latter presenting to the wife of Governor Martin, without the consent of the commissioners, a dress pattern of the first cloth manufactured from the station silk. The commission el's do not appear to have antago nized so much the act as the method, claiming that they should have been consulted. On the other hand, it is claimed that Belden & Co., the manufacturers of the cloth, owned it, and presented it to Mrs. Martin. The silk commission consists of three members. Two of them are ' Senator Codding and Representative Morse. The law creating the silk station was passed last winter. Mr. Homer had been its "projector. He was at Topeka, working for it. He enlisted as its champion in the house Mr. Morse. Mr. Morse worked like a beaver for its passage, and we think that but for his able championship the bill would have failed of passage in the house. Mr. Morse was very friendly with Mr. Horner last winter, which leads us to judge that the friendship has not been severed without at least consid able provocation from Mr. Horner. Horner understands the process of reeling sijk, and possibly the prin- ciple of making money in the silk industry, but he will have to prove the silk commissioners guilty before people who know them will take -any stock in his charges of corrup tion on their part. It is to be hoped that none of the appropriation for the maintenance of the silk station has been, or will be, wasted. As in the case of establishing forestry sta tions, the legislature did what ought to be made a great public good when it provided for a test of he utility of the silk industry being made in Kansas.

If, from mis management or other cause, the state silk station were to be a fail ure. tHe cry on the part of legisla tive members from eastern districts against "new state boards" wrould be raised to a prolonged yell. We are not ready to join in this cry until after western Kansas, instead of having only two state forestry' sta tions, has as many state -institutions as eastern Kansas. Township Republican Caucus.
