The Republican County Central committee is hereby called to meet at the Court House in the City of Wa- Keeney, on August 9, 1902, at 1 o'clock p. m., for the purpose of transacting any business which may properly come before it. A full turn-out is re quested, as important business will come before the meeting, i : The following persons comprise the committee: Ogallah T. S. Howe Collyer F. Schwanbeck "Willcox J. F. Gunckel "Wa-Keeney A. S. Peacock Riverside W. B. Cypher Franklin i Otto Young Glencoe D. J. Wilson H. S. Givleb, Chairman. Mr. Craddock, the Democratic can didate for governor, has started in to make himself the paramount issue in the coming campaign. He claims that he should be elected governor because he will reduce taxation. He lias written letters and printed pam phlets setting forth the theory that the people should vote for him and Bave money. Unfortunately for Mr. Craddock, he has a record. A little over a year ago he was elected mayor of Kansas City, Kan., by jusc such t ilk and promises as he is making now to the people of the state at large. He has been mayor for over a year. In these letters and circulars, Mr. Craddock attempts to show that lie has been a good mayor, and, there fore, ought to be governor, but the records in the city clerk's office at Kansas City, Kan., very strikingly contradicts these claims. Mr. Craddock's administration has not only increased the assessed valua tion of property in Kansas City, Kan., but has actually increased the tax levy for the operating expenses of the city. He has tried to fool the people by neglecting to levy for sinking-fund and for judgment fund, thereby leav ing uncared for a large indebtedness of that city which bears a high rate of interest. Any citizea who has to do even with school district affairs knows that the failure to make levy to provide for a debt does not pay the debt. The revenue raised in Kansas City, Kan., under the first year of Mayor Craddock's administration was over $15,000 greater than the year pre ceding. Mr. Craddock spent not only t :is but Increased the floating indebt edness of the city $22,354.98. Most of this increased expense was made in the police department, which cost about $9,000 more under him than the year preceding. He enlarged the po lice force to make places for Demo cratic hapgers-on, and, in this connec tion, it should be added that when he increased the police force he increas ed the number of licensed joints, one of the latter being located within one block and a half of the high-school building, and this in the face of the earnest protests of the people. Mr. Craddock's methods of dealing with the corporations of Kansas Citj, Kan., is an illustration of bis states manship. He liad promised the peo ple that he would see that their as sessment was raised. He did. this, but first made an agreement with them that the levy should be reduced so that they would have no more taxes to pay than they had before. He then refused to make any levy to meet judgments and for sinking-fund, and thus kept his agreement with the corporations, and, at the same time, thought he bad fooled the people. It is noticeable that one of Mr. Craddock's first acts, after becoming mayor of Kansas City, Kan., was to have his own salary as mayor increas ed from $1,000 to $2,000 per year. As mayor, he lias increased expenses, in creased joints, increased the police force, increased the city debt, and de creased nothing, except the estima tion in which his promises are held by the people, upon which his election was based. Capital. "If drinking interferes with your business, quit yoor business." The foregoing words appear on a placard displayed in a Great Bend saloon. They are sarcastic to the most super lative degree and contain a temper ance lecture more pointed and con vincing than for many a day has been heard in this town. The proprietors of that place are very long time peo ple of the county and know every bony, in the shortest cut manner possible they say by this placard to each patron of their place: "If your business is hurt by your drinking, quit drinking." We understand that one one man has already profited by reading that placard. Great Bend Register. Kansas papers are taiKing ot pro gressive teachers who are now attend ing summer schools for the purpose of attaining greater efficiency in their profession The school teachers don't have the best time in the world. For nine months in the year they are cooped up with a lot of willful chil dren that can hardly be managed by their parents; and then when va cation comes and the children have three months in which to think up new kind of devilment for the next term, the teachrr has to put in the hot summer months at a snmmer school. Topeka Herald. Whjle Americas population has in creased about five fold during J,he last century,"the productive power of that population has increased about forty fold. Man for man, industrially con sidered, the American is twenty-five years ahead of the Englishman, who in turn is far ahead of his European neighbor. At this rate, in 1920 there will be 110,000,000 Americans, with a working power equal to all the 350. 000,000 people which Europe will then probably contain. Chicago Inter- Ocean. The Anti-Fusion Law. The Democrats in asking the Pop- olists to join them in making their state ticket, assured the latter that the anti-fusion law would be declared unconstitutional by the supreme court and promised the Populists that both tickets would be submitted to the secretary of state and in case lie refused to recognize both of them (as he would have to do) they would im mediately bring suit in the supreme court to test its validity. This in face of the fact that the majority of their leading lawyers declared that the law could not be beaten. The Democrats, however, used this to bring the Popu lists into line. Now that this has been done and no suit has yet been brought they are attempting to hola the Populists in line by saying that it would be useless to bring it up now as the majority of the members of the supreme court are Republicans, and would therefore upheld it. Let it alone until after the campaign and thus use it for campaign issue. And the Pops can't prevent it. The party has been delivered bodily into the Democratic camp. As far as the anti-fusion law is con cerned the Democrats were as active in passing it as Republicans. They realized that it would be a decided gain to their party and that by it they could control the Populists. No legal proceedings will be instituted but as long as there is a remnant of the Populist party who stand up for their principles, there will be a lot of Democrats who will offer consolation to them by abusing the law and invit ing them into the Democratic camp. The trouble is the Democrats can't deliver the goods and the Populists are beginning to find it out. Great Bend Register. Cobwebs are unknown in the stores thnt advertise in this paper.
