Established Marca 1. 1879. Saturday, Nov. 23, 1901. Another Populist paper, and it was a good one, deserts tbe Populist cause, and joins the grand old paty the Re publican. This time it is the Quene mo Tribune. ' Listen to what it says: "Henceforth the Tribune will stand for and advocate the principles oi the Republican party. In making the change the paper comes neither ask ing nor expecting anything, but be cause it believes the politics being carried out by the Republican party can and will bring mora good to the American people. Since the birth of reform we have earnestly and fearless ly advocated the principles of the re form party. We have been sold out, falsely accused and treacherously be trayed, but have in the midst of ad versity remained true to the princi ples which we believe to be right. In uniting with the Republican party we feel that it is necessary to sacrifice no principle. The increased output of gold has made the free and unlimited coinage of silver impracticable; the talk of imperialism has ' been hushed by the success of Republican policies; the tariff has been and will be regard ed according to the needs and best in terests of the people. Other ques tions will in their turns, we believe, meet with proper consideration." These changes do not come as sur prises for the fact that -for a long time it has been known that fusion in Kansas has been cent to its last rest ing place and that Populism of the latter-day label has forced itself to oblivion. Within a very short time we expect one of the following three things to iiappen with every Populist newspaper iu Kansas. Quit, turn Democrat or take up the banner that is sweeping the land Republic anism. Not only wili this be true witii the papers, but with the mem bers of the Populist party, who still cling to the halucination tiiat they have a political home. Bryan has stricken the word Populism out and substituted the word Democrat, but this will only last until the next Dem ocratic National convention meets and then the way those eastern Dem ocrats will go after the western brand and those who have sought temporary shelter under it, won't be slow. Pop ulists of the west have joined the Democratic party simple because, in its make-over by the Nebraska won der, some little Populist material was used, and the question that now con fronts us is. what will they do when the regeneration sets in with true Democ racy in the saddle Some no doubt will follow the entire way, but they will be the ones out for pelf and noth ing more. The Concordia Kansan is one of the few Populist papers in Kansas which stand for the maintenance of the Pop ulist organization, though there is little hope or cheer about its view of the situation. It cites both Populist and Democratic authorities to show that Brvanism and free silver are dead and gDne issues and confesses its own belief that the gold standard wing of the Democratic party will control the next national convention, thus severing the only strand which holds Populism to the cause of Dem ocracy. As showing the workings of a troubled Populist mind we quote from the Kansas article as follows: . "We were willing, and are now will ing, to go with the Democrats so long as they are going our way under the leac'eaship of Mr. Bryan. But the Democracy of the Cleveland type is a greater friend of trusts, monopolies and the gold standard than is the Re publicanism of Roosevelt. "Populism cannot De led into that brand of Democracy, and it looks very much as though that brand of Dem ocracy is going to be in the ascend ancy. "It may be true that we are dead, as our opponents say, but the Kansan is not yet ready to wiap the cerements of the grave about the amaciated body and cast it into tbe tomb of Tamma ny Democracy." K. C. Journal. Here is what J. Sterling Morton, a Democrat and a gentleman, thinks of a matter which has been disturbing small calibre of men ot all political parties: "There are some men with white skins and black souls men whose intellects are darker than dark est Africa. These black white men often frequent political gatherings and sometimes achieve social and po litical prominence. There are some black men with strong minds who, by diligent study, have accumulated great stores of use ful knowledge and bestowed innum erable benefits upon mankind. These white black men are worthy of con sideration. They even make more agreeable dinnermates than the black white men. That is to say, intelii- gence incarnated in charcoai-coiorea men is more .entertaining and in structive than ignorance skin-clothed in white. It would please most think ing men to dine with Booker T. Wash ington rather than with Herr'Most, Leon Czolgosz or any other ignorant white anarchists. A mind white with useful knowledge in ever so black a body is better than an intellect black with ignorance in ever so white a bod v." Gay lord Herald. The East looks with amazement upon the condition of the banks of Kansas and cannot believe that there are bonks in the state where tbe sur plus amounts to more than their capi tal stock. According to the state ment of Bank Commissioner Albaugh there are thirty-seven State banks where this condition prevails. An other thing which amazes the Bast is the fact that Kansas banks are refus- ng deposits. Eastern people who have looked upon Kansas as a semi- arid district cannot realize that Kan sas really has money, more than she knows what to do with. Tbey cannot comprehend the fact that Kansas is rich in spite of her short corn crop and that they will not be called upon again to furnisii food and clothing to the people of Kansas. The East should try to get it through its head that Kansas has $80,000,000 in the bank and instead of asking help from the East, Kansas is ieady to loan the East any amount of money, of course on approved security." Kansas has no money to burn, but the people of the state have enough to indulge in a few of the luxuries of life, live happy. educate their children and help the East out of the hole if necessary. Hutchinson News. The printer's best friend is the man or woman who gives him items of news. There are people we know of, however, who iiave such prejudice against telling a newspaper man any thing that if thev died they would not say a word about it." If a baby is born to you give it in for publication the item not the baby. If you have visitors send us their names and resi dence. If vou have made a successful speculation and have money in your pockets, give it to us that is. the item, we do not need any money Newspapers run without monev. Send us all the news, and we won't object if you occasionally send in a dollar for a year s subscription to the paper. Ellinwood Leader. In the early settlement of Gray county one of its citizens, who was known as a droll character got under conviction and was finally converted Swearing had been his weakness in fact, his besetting sin for years, and his greatest trial in the new life was to overcome this habit. Being "called on" one uight at prayer meeting he of course responded. The condition of tiie poor lay heavily upon his heart, and among other things he prayed "Do thou supply their wants. Feed them from Thy inexhaustable store' house.. Send them a barrel of flour, a barrel of meal, a barrel of meat, barrel of molasses, a barrel of salt, barrel of pepper oh li 1! that's too much pepper -Amen! Ex. . . Stand By Your Friend- There is a cheap type of politician who swells up with pride at finding himself the proud possessor of at least one virtue, who never forgets to wag his head grandly and brag about standing by his friends. Which is all right but subject to amendment and debate. It is good to stand by our friends, but while you are doing it be sure your friends are right. Loyalty becomes a vice when it makes a man stand by a wrong. There - is some good in every man. To stand by that good is the duty of a friend. But to stand by the bad in a man along with the good because he is vour friend in folly. When a man violates the law it is criminal to staud by him to the extent of helping him out of jail. It is alright to take care of his children, to help his family, to give him succor. But to stand for his crime, to condone evil, to whitewash wrong doing that is stretching virtue so thin that vice shows through. It is always better to stand by the right, to defend hon esty than it is to stand by a friend's vices.- A phrase often gets a man into trouble by following it blindly. It is just as well to throw aside phrases and get down to the truth of tbe mat ter. Standing by the right; friend or no friend is bravery, honesty and manlier thau to follow a phrase. Stand br your friend, when he is right. When he is wrong, stand by bis vir tues and condemn the wrong he does. Emporia Gazette. ' John W. Breidentbal. who was the Populist candidate for governor last year, gives it as his opinion that his party is completely dead, aod the Re publicans will carry Kansas next year by 75,000 ma iority. Ness City News. Go the Farmers' store for fresh groceries. In Bestor's old staud.. An Ottawa man who lias been breathing with difficulty has coughed up what the Herald claims to be a calcareous substance from his bron chi n a," and the I ola Register demands that be have some of the shale ex perts from Trego county examine it. The Concordia Kansan says: Whisky, burdock and wild cherry bark used to be considered, a century ago, as good "bitters" to ward off any old disease. It is getting to be the fashion in Con cordia again except that the burdock and wild cherry is no longer consid ered necessary. Well, remarked President Roosevelt as the tail of the last Kansau's coat disappeared through the doorway: "I have fought Spaniards and charged through barb wire fences; I have eaten raw bacon and swilled stale water; I have been chased bv grizzlies and horned by Texas steers; I have had the liver jarred out of me by bucking bronchos; have jumped out of my skin to escape the fangs of the musical rattler, and thought I knew what the strenuous life is, but these Kansas raiders stop my clock." Lawrence Journal. - The Seattle Standard sings this song: "The lowly spud a while ago, was the meanest thing a man could grow. He put it In on bis dry est land where nothing was but building sand He hoed it when his work was slack, and dug it with, an aciiing baek. He cussed the patch that held the spud and plowed it when 'twas thick witii mud; apologized for having used his ground at all for spuds abused. But now another story's told, the farmer man the spuds uphold; worth more than apples by the peck, it's got the worla right by the neck. All other fruit is sadly hit the 'tuber' now is strictly 'it.' " Ode to Kansas Writers. The writers of Kansas! - How sturd ily they toil, to boom her famous cli mate, her rivers and her soil. In si lent hours of midnight, in dusk of evening gray, at dawn, at noon, at morninsr, tliey blithely toil away. The printers of Kansas! Who hold the metal "stick," whose tireless nimble titigers send, with a ceaseless click, the type, in lines and columns, to sing Kansas praise, her primrose paths of pleasantness, her happy, peaceful ways. Tbe presses of Kansas that rumble in tbe land, the ones that fly like lightning, the ones, that work by band, long may their-revolutions be made, to give tbe world tales of Kan sas glory, where "freedom's flag's un furled." The papers or Kansas. (And of them there are scores) which tell about a country, tbe finest out of doors, their work is one of glory, and seldom one of gold, but never does their ardor in singing praise grow cold.- The writer and the printer, the pa per and the press, have made a bloom ing garden from a dire wilderness. Rewards are slow in coming, but tbey are on tbe way; if not before, we'll get there, upon tbe final day. Walt Mason. - - Tliey Need Prayers. We are requested to ask the Chris tians of this community not the hypocrites, but tbe real Christians tbe men and tbe women whose inward and outward lives conform to tbe doc trines of Christ not those who pro fess to believe and live up to the teachings of Jesus Christ to hold a meeting this week, for tbe sole pur pose of praying for the slandering gossips the men and the women wbo lie about their neighbors; who go from place to place repeating all sorts of vile stories about those they know nothing about the lying, standing gossips who through envy or jealousy speak unkindly of. others. These are the people wbo Deed praying for; aud we are requested to ask- the real Christians to have a day of fasting and prayer for the salvation of all of them; to the end that tbe Lord will call a halt on the gossips, the slander ers, tbe liars aud the hypocrites. Bent Murdock. Tbe Came Law- The present game law is ironclad, and taken in connection with the gov. ernmeut law, the man with a gun is badly hampered. Quail can be killed during December only; but even when shooting quail in LVcember, one must tiave permission from tbe owner or oc cupant of the land. One can not shoot quail even on his own premises save in December. Nor can one shoot birds on the open highway without first baring tbe consent of the owner of the land, adjoiuing such road. The penalty prescribed for violating any of the provisions of the game law is a fine of not less than ti nor more than $100 for. each offense, together witii the costs and the attorney's fee of $10.
