This week we nail to the mast-head
the name of the nominees of the Re
publican party of Trego county and
there they will remain until after
the people speak at the November
election. Is is a good ticket, collect
ively and individually. The nomina
tion was fairly conducted and the
nominees are the choice of the ma
jority of the party. These reasons
are sufficient to entitle our ticket to
the support of every true Republican.
Bicycles cannot run without
wheels, boats without steam, engines
without coal or newspapers without
cash. Our subscribers are all good,
but what good does a man's good do
him when it don't do any good? He
thinks every body has paid except
him, and so it won't matter. And
meantime the editor is carrying
about three-fourths of the subscrip
tion list from two to four years, wears
old clothes and is growled at for not
getting out a "live" paper! How can
the man with a lot of "dead" subscrib
ers? Say. neighbor, are you one of
'em? Ex.
If the truth is in the story from
Topeka about the Populist adminis
tration of the Blind asylum, the pile
of infamy at the door of Populism is
heaped higher. It is said that the
broom factory established fourteen
years ago by Superintendent Miller
has been allowed to lapse into idle
ness. This factory paid regular
wages to the pupils, purchased their
clothing and turned annually into the
state treasury $2,500 profits. There
were brooms to the value of $2,600 on
hand when the Populists took hold of
the institution. These have gone,
nobody knows where, for in the ledger
where the account should stand, six
pages have been torn out. The pe6
ple of Kansas must be nauseated with
the scandals that have been revealed,
but it is a public duty to face the
music and go to the root of all the
rottenness in public affairs. Leaven
worth Times.
Ending with last Saturday night
western Kansas experienced the hot
test weather ever known at that sea
son of the year. Our old-timers all
agree upon this statement and yet it
wasn't so very bad after all. It was
true that the mercury reached a
pretty high altitude during the mid
dle of the day, but the heat was tem
pered with a fine breeze and at no
time was the air sultry. There were
no sunstrokes nor fatalities of any
kind resulting from the weather. As
compared with other localities, west
ern Kansas was a health resort. In
the East schools were suspended,
judges adjourned court and many
kinds of business were temporarily
closed on account of the hot weather.
Following the heated term was a cold
wave from the northwest which
reached here last Saturday evening.
It was not a bad storm in this local
ity. A few had fires the following
morning, but more were comfortable
without them. A light frost Monday
morning was the climax of the storm
here. The entire state of Colorado
was covered with snow, eight inches
covering the ground at Denver and
fourteen inches at Boulder. , In Wyo
ming the snow was two feet deep and
several perished. Even Nebraska
was covered with snow. The com
parisons are only made to emphasize
a fact well known to our citizens, but
sometimes temporarily lost sight of.
We have the finest climate in the
world in western Kansas. Neither
too hot nor" 3-et too cold. It is just
about right and averaging the year,
one month with another, it will equal
if not excel any other locality in the
United States. It is always bracing
and health-giving. Never sultry in
summer and the theremometer sel
doms falls below zero in winter. We
think a few remarks, on the never
failing topic of the weather, timely
right now when so much fault is be
ing found in other, localities. Surely
our lines have fallen to us in pleasant
places in western Kansas and we
ought to appreciate it even more than
we do.
TnE crime of crimes in any nation
is treason. Anarchy is so closely al
lied to treason that a distinction or a
difference is scarcely perceptible. We
have often wondered why the strong
arm of the law has not been invoked
to suppress anarchy and stamp out
those miserable traitors and conspira
tors which infest most of our princi
pal cities and whose sole aim seems
to be to teach the doctrine of the red
flag and incite rebellion to our gov
ernment and our free institutions.
We continue to wonder at the lenien
cy of those who have charge of our
nation's honor, although an incident
occurred in Chicago the other day
which will send a thrill of joy and ex
ultation to the heart of every loyal
citizen, because it demonstrated that
anarchy and the red flag will no
longer be tolerated in at least one of
our chief cities.
"Charles Wilfred Mowbray, the
Englishman, who came to Chicago for
the purpose of teaching his doctrine
of no government, was stopped in the
middle of a speech at Belmont park
by the police. He was so badly fright
ened that after a few words of expla
nation, in which he said that he did
not mean to teach violence, he hur
riedly left the platform and made his
escape in the crowd.
Police Inspector Schaack, who was
a prominent figure in the troublesome
times of 1886, made preparations to
nip any kind of a radical demonstra
tion before it had gone too far. He
was present with a detail of police in
citizens' clothes, and a block away 100
uniformed officers and three patrol
wagons waited a signal to make a de
scent on the gathering.
Mowbray started in by abusing the
police and the newspapers. Inspector
Schaack bore this without interfer
ence, but when he began berating the
stars and stripes, and hoping for the
glorious day when the red emblem
would be raised triumphantly aloft,
the inspector gave the signal and Cap
tain Schuettler, who was on the plat
form, laid a heavy hand on the shoul
der of the speaker. Mowbray had not
expected this, and was plainly dis
concerted. He stammered and looked
dismayed, and attempted an explana
tion, but the big police captain
quietly remarked: "You have got to
stop that Kind 01 talk," and that set
tled it.
There was a howl from the crowd at
the interruption and several of the
more radical attempted to climb the
stairs leading to the platform. They
were prevented from doing so by the
police. Richard Braunschweig, a loud
mouthed radical, who can scarcely
speak a word of English, managed to
get on the platform and attempted to
shove Captain Schuettler to one side.
He was seized by'two detectives.
Mrs. Lucy Parsons was present and
after Mowbray's experience she re
marked: "It don't surprise me any.
Liberty is dead in Chicago. Any one
can see that." To which the police
replied: "Anarchy is dead in Chicago
for all time."

A Letter.
CniCAGO, Ills., Sep. 2, 1895.
C. C. Bestor, Wa-Keeney, Kansas.
Dear Sir: The Restaurant Com
mission of the Cotton States and In
teractional Exposition to be held in
Atlanta have awarded us the coffee
contract, so that our -Seal Brand"
will be served virtually exclusively
inside the grounds. New York, Chi
cago, Boston and New Orleans houses
were very active in their efforts to se
cure this contract, which wa finally
awarded to us on a basis of superior
quality and uniformity of coffee, as
was so practically proven at the
World's Fair.
f Yours very truly,
Chase & Sanborn.

The Dakota Hot Springs.
The Hot Springs of Arkansas have
long been deservedly popular, for the
reason that there has been no other
place that has filled the requirements
of both a health and a pleasure resort.
This state of affairs have changed,
The Hot Springs of South Dakota
have, in recent years, been thrown
open to the people, and because of
their delightful situation and great
curative qualities, are becoming more
popular every day. Situated as this
resort is, in the famous Black Hills,
in the midst of beautiful mountain
scenery, possessing that balsamic at
mosphere which is in itself health giv
ing, with waters that are pronounced
by experts equal if not superior to
those of any other mineral springs in
the world, it will soon outrank any
other resort.
You can buy more grocer
ies for a dollar at Bestor's
than any other place in town.
REIGN OF HIGH CARNIVAL.
St. Loui3 in a Blaze of Glory. Seven Weeks
of Uninterrupted Gaiety.
The name of America's greatest car
nival center St. Louis will be blaz
oned on the skies of gaiety from Sep
tember 4th to October 19th, 1895. The
eighteenth annual reign of carnival
will pervade the city, and for seven
weeks European capitals noted for
their seasons of mystery and regal en
tertainment will gracefully bow to
the superiority of the city on the
banks of the Mississippi.
September 4th will mark the open
ing of the Twelfth Annual St. Louis
Exposition. This splendid feature of
St. Louis' carnival period will remain
open until October 19th. In addition
to Sousa's world-famed bank, many
new attractions will be offered. Sep
tember 4th to 14th, the celebrated
French Equilibrists, the Kins-Kers,
will appear. September 15 to 28th,
Caicedo. "the King of the Wire," and
Louis Oloriz, "the Man Monkey," by
their unique entertainments will de
light the fun-seeking public. Septem
ber 30th to October 12th, Ivan Tsche
roff's celebrated educated mutes, the
Russian dogs, are carded for a series
of wonderful performances. October
13th to 19th, Price Kokin, the great
est Japanese juggler alive, will fill an j
engagement, while Buck Taylor and
troupe of native Sioux Indians and
Miss Cornelia Campbell Bedford, of
New York, Demonstrator of Cooking,
will appear every day during the Ex
position season."
That mysterious personage, King
Hotu, and his retinue will give a day
light parade September 28th. This is
one of the most unique attractions of
the carnival season in St. Louis, and
is grotesquely staged. October 7th to
12th, the world-beater, the great St.
Louis Fair, will be the chief attrac
tion. On the evening of October 8th,
His Majesey the Veiled Prophet and
royal court will parade the principal
thoroughfares of the city, followed by
the famous ball, which is known
throughout the land.
All the St. Louis theaters, during
the season of high carnival, have
billed most excellent attractions.
Among the number might be men
tioned "Trilby," "Lyceum Theater
Company," Chas. Frohman's Stock
Company, Hoyt's "A Black Sheep,"
DeWolf Hopper, etc.
The management of the Missouri
Pacific Railway and Iron Mountain
Route constantly having the interests
of St. Louis in mind, will sell tickets
from all points on the system to the
carnival city and return at greatly
reduced rates. For copy of the pro
gram giving the features of the car
nival season in detail, address com
