We reaffirm the principles express' ed in tne platform of the national Republican party of 1896. We endorse the wise and patriotic administration of President McKin ley. Its signal achievements in war and peace, in statesmanship and di plomacy mark an epoch in the history of the nation. The highest interests of the country demand its uninter rupted continuance through another term of its great but uncompleted work. We congratulate the American peo ple in that the Republican party has kept its pledge for the maintenance of the gold standard ana the parity of all our forms of money and compre hensive, courageous legislation. The insurrection of Aguinaldo is kept alive by hope of Democratic suc cess, based on the false cry of imper ialism. We condemn this unpatriotic policy as being responsible for the continued war in the Phiippines with its cost of precious lives and treasure, We denounce the Democratic party for its hypocrisy in pretending to ten der regard for the governmental wel fare.of the inhabitants of Porto Rico and the Philippines while at the same time deliberately disfranchising thousands of American citizens in Southern states because of color, and r urge our representatives in con gress to use their best efforts to bring about such legislation as will remedy these unjust codditions. We demand the prompt, efficient and faithful enforcement of the anti trust act of 1890, and such additional and supplemental legislation as. will meet the defects thereof, as Indicated by the supreme court of the United States in its recent decisions; and we denounce the combination and crea tion of corporate trusts and monopo lies, which seek to become the con trollers of industrv and the arbitra tors of prices, as contrary to the com mon law, destructive of individual effort and enterprise and Inimical to the welfare of the people and the . . . . t.i....in.. 0i 1 1; ouu tuts uatiuu. We reaffirm our allegiance to the principles of reciprocity and protec tion to American labor as exemplified in the Dingley law. We commend in highest terms the wise and satisfactory administration of Governor W. E. Stanley and his as sociates in the state government. We have noted with approval his efforts along the line of economy, his close personal attentionto the great institu tions under his charge, and we con gratulate him upon the success with which his administration has met the expectations of the people and the pledges of the party. We endorse the record at Washing ton of our United States senator and members of congress and commend them heartily for their faithful ser vices. For ten years, the fusion forces of Kansas have made their campaigns upon the issues of railroad legislation. In 1897, they gained control of the executive, judicial legislative branch es of the state government. They failed to enact any railroad legisla tion whatever. After their defeat at the polls, a special session of the leg islature was called which wiped out every vestiare of legal control of the railroads, and substituted a law so manifestly a piece of jobbery, that the action of the federal and state courts in removing it from the stat ute books is approved by all citizens without respect to party. This leaves us without a railroad law, and makes the question of railroad legislation an important one in the cemifig state campaign. The Republican party pledges itself to the work of securing to the people such legislation, found ed in common justice and business sense, and will proyide adequate pro tection against the greed of the cor porations without crippling them with unjust exactions. We favor the re-establishment of the board of rail road commissioners with such addi tional powers as shall render their work effective and with power to fix and enforce just rates and recommend the election of the members of the board by tbeDeople. It having been found that the fed eral act known as the Interstate Com merce act is adequate to control rates of interstate transportation, and is inqui table and tends to foster trusts by legalizing advantages growing out of the natural and artificial condi tions more available and useful to trusts and combines than to the smaller and weaker interior jobbers, manufacturers and shippers, and we urge upon our. members in congress the amendment of the interstate commerce act in such manner that It will compel compliance with and en forcement of just and equitable freight rates. We are heartily in sympathy with generous pension legislation, and an administration of the pension depart ment which will give the veterans of the civil war the benefit of a liberal interpretation of the laws. We ob ject to any iorced or technical ruling by which the pensioner is derived of th full benefit of such laws as con gress has passed in his behalf. We favor a law which will enable railroad men who are necessarily en gaged in running their trains upon election day to cast their votes. The operation of trains often makes it im possible under our present voting sys tem for conductors and members of train crews to cast their votes, and their Inability to find time from their work to go to the polls thus deprives several thousand people of the state, each year, of their right of suffrage. We pledge ourselves to some measure whicU will make it possible for these men to enjoy suffrage without embar rassment to their work. Verbeck's Prices. Corn chop, 85c per 100 lbs.

Next Friday, June 1, the work of taking the census will commence. On that day the enumerators will begin their work bright and early. They will be armed with police powers and any individual refusing to yield up the information asked for will be guilty of violating a federal statute and dealt with accordingly. The law allows until June 15 for completing the census in the cities and until July 1 in the country dis tricts. As soon as the returns are complete, they will be sent at once to Washington. person is allowed to give out any information reeard ing these returns under danger of fine and imprisonment. In Washington the returns will be tabulated and footed up and prepared for publi cation. According to the census law, re turns must be made on the basis of June 1. If a man is alive on that day he will have his name, place, occupa tion and all other facts relating to him tabulated in the census returns, even if he has died before the "cen sus man" comes around. There may be a kicking, vigorous addition to the family on June 5 to June 10 when the man witli the pencil and blank forms visits the house, but that particular baby will have to wait ten years to be counted. As f;ir as the census enum erators are concerned, the . world will come to an end on June 1. Capital HOW'S THIS?

Gay of Topeka had seven men employed at prospecting along Page creek last week for gold and were so successful as to warrant them buying 640 acres of land for mineral purposes. We are pleased to see the work ad vancing. Last Friday was the closing day of our school, during the day several vis itors were at the school, and in the evening an exhibition closed Miss Millie Barber's nine month term of school. The exhibition was a grand entertainment, it consisted of about four hours' program of songs, instru mental music, dialogues, recitations, farces and tableaux. The audience numbered about four times as many as could be seated, yet good order was observed by all. The manner in which the school children recited showed careful and studious training and was an honor to their teacher as well as parents. Miss Barber now leaves our district for her home in Ness county, and we wish to extend to her the good wishes of the district in general and may success and pros perity ever smile on her throughout the future.
