' It is not at all sur prising that Mr. Bryan should dislike criticisms of reckless public oratory. He has been a prime offender in that direction. Through the two presi dential campaigns he speut most of his time in voicing doctrines and sen timents of a mischieyous character. He dovoted himself with all diligence to creating class prejudice and foment ing class hatred. He told working men that they were being cheated of the fruits of their labor; that the government was being run in the in terests or the rich and against the poor; that the president was an em peror, and that the liberties of the people were being subverted. This kind of talk was as mischiev ous as It was false. True, it had lit tle effect upon intelligent people, most of whom understood its purpose, and those who believed , in it were soon undeceived oy the logic of events. But the ignorant and the unthinking were misled and their minds poisoned and unheal tlifully excited. Mr. Bry an's utterances were not so bluntly unpatriotic as those of some of his as sociates, because Mr. Bryan is an adept in the use of words and his phraseology was more polite. But his meaning was clear and unmistakable, even to the untutored. If this kind of oratory and the journalism which supported it did not lead to the as sassination of the president, they might easily have done so. . If Mr. McKinley had been the kind of man he was represented i f he was merely a tool of greedy capitalists and was trying to destroy the republic and make himself emperor the fate that overtook him at Buffalo would have been deserved. As the Journal has remarked be fore, Mr. Bryan did not desire - to in cite anarchy or in any way encourage assassination. - lie-was simply playing upon popular discontent for partisan purposes. He wanted to be president, and was resorting to practical meth ods of.-campaigning. With all his high sounding talk about Jefferson and Lincoln,, lie was merelv plying the trade of "a demagogue. And he plied it vigorously and assiduously. 'That he should defend his methods' now is natural -enough. His vehement protest against any restriction of the freedom of speech even of anarchis tic speech indicates that he may want to employ his v&st methods some more. Probably he does. While the patriotic sentiment of the coun try is demanding that the inflamma tory harangues which makes assas sins of creatures like Czolgozs shall be suppress, It requires a bold man to stand up and say that the mouths of the Goldmans and the Mosts and the Lucy Parsonsshall remain unmuzzled.

Saum, of Hays City, while here to day on business, stated that it .lias been demonstaled at last that there there is gold In paying quantities in the Ellis-Trego county shale fields. . ' ''The Gage mill at Smoky City has been running a week now," said he, "and it is getting from $6 to $7 in gold to the' ton. I was at the mill yesterday. Gage had just finished a six ton run. He ootained $6 in silver and $25 in gold from the run." The promoters are now working quietly obtaining leases In all the country in the .shale district. They tried to keep the result of the week's run a secret, but it has leaked out, and there is now great excitement out our way and the price of lands is ad vancing rapidly." Mr. Sau iii's statement created much and Quilts. surprise among the state officials. He is- a conservative man. Some time ago several state officials asked his advice about investing in the- gold lands. He advised them not to invest, sayinig he believed there was nothing in the gold proposition. However, the officials, to be on the safe side, .went ahead and purchased some land, and now they are glad of it. Mr. Saurii is making some in vestments in the shale land himself nTw. K. C-Journal.

It was sup posed the barn was accidently set on fire'by the boy. who could aob escape from the flames. K. C Journal. A Comedy of Blunders. It has just leaked out that a bashful young man of this city who is paying attentions to a fair country damsel was caught in a storm while spending an evening at the home of his heart's desire. As he had no umbrella, or rubber coat, the girl's father asked him to remain at the house' until morning and he readily consented. He is a bashful young man" and next morning when invited to a seat at the table reluctantly accepted. He was nervous and agitated. He sat oppo site a mirror and discovered he had forgotten to comb his hair. Then he dropped his fork on the floor and as he stooped to pick it up he upset his coffee: Matters went from bad to worse until finally the young man in despair quit eating and put his hand under the 'table. The loose end of the table cloth was lying in his lap and when he touched it be turned pale.- He thought it was his shirt", and that in his nervous excitement, while dressing, he had forgotten to put the garmeut inside of his troiTsers. That, as he thought, accounted for the smiles and stares of the family and his embarrassment.- There was no time to loose. He hurriedly stuffed the supposed shirt inside his trousers. Two minutes later when the family arose from the table, there was a crash, and the dishes lay in a broken mass on the floor. The young man pulled several feet of table cloth out of his pants and fled through the door. Ex. . , Smoked hams at Baker's.
