The taxpayers of Trego county ask ed a Democratic board of commission ers for bridges but tailed to get them. The board admitted that the bridges were needed but did not have the courage to give the people what they asked for lest it be made an "issue" and defeat them at the polls. The present board responded to the ap peals of the taxpayers as fast as able to do so and provided four bridges. They have paid out on bridge ac counts 83,404.54 cash.

It is true that a Democratic board of commissioners paid off some of our court house bonds,- but they took money from the general fund of the county to do it. Now a Democratic editor tries to discredit a Republican board because the money is not in the general fund where it belongs. Prac tically, the Democrats borrowed the money and let it to the Rrnnhlina to hold the sack and pay it back Credit to whom credit is due. The editor of the Independent is trying hard to make it appear that Trego county is bankrupt but all tLe same he would be glad have some of her warrants; for county printing, for instance.

Rinker, of Wii-Keeney, who was nominated bv the Democrats for the Legislature from the 101th dis trict, was arrested Thursday night by Deputy United State Marshal Mc Grath. The charge against Mr. Rin ker is that he has been sending ob scene letters through the mail. The last federal grand jury at Leaven worth returned an Indictment against him. It ischrrged that Mr. Rinker wrote letters to two young ladies in Wa Keeney. The letters were anything but decent. The letters were not sign ed by Mr. Rinker, but the officers think they can prove that he wrote them. One of the letters was signed C. E. Dudrowe and it is said Mr. Rin ker called at the postofflce and inquir ed for mail addressed to C. E. Dud rowe. Mr. Rinker is a wealthy man and lives near Wa-Keeney. He denies any knowledge of the letters. He gave bond for $1,000 for his appearance be fore the United States Commissioner. It was not known at the time that the investigation was made by the frFonil i ii nr 1 . .1 VT v Pi.lm. ... .. 1. Democratic nominee for the Legisla-n From the above our readers' will see that the charges preferred against Mr. Rinker were brought by the last federal grand jury at Leavenworthv As all kinds of reports have been cir culated since this matter has appear ed both in the Capital and Star, we feel that it is nothing more than fair and honest that tne people of the town and county be given an honest and plain explanation of the whole af fair. We understand by good author ity that both Mr. Rinker and his henchman are circulating the report that this' matter was instigated and hatched up by a few Republicans sim ply for political and campaign pur poses against Mr. Rinker, and some have gone so far as to say thai, we our selves, are the guilty party and through us that this matter was start ed, but we are going to show the peo ple that this is false from start to nnish. On the 22d day of August our post office clerk received a letter addressed to herself, and after reading the letter' handed it to us. We will not go into details as to the contents of the letter but sufficient to say that ir the daughter of any man in the town or county had received such a letter, could the party have been proven, would have received a dose of hot lead in short order. No name was signed to this letter and both the clerk and myself did not know who wrote the letter, but according to' Section.,1564 on page 671. under the' heading of offenses against the Postal Law in the Postal Laws and Regula tions, the postmaster is required to take immediate action in such mat ters, so we dispatched the letter to the Fourth Assistant Postmaster Gen eral, Washington, D. C. Now right here we want the people to catch this fact aud keep it before them, that neither the clerk or my self knew who the writer was as there was no name signed to the letter. Now, for further developments. On the 23rd of August, Miss Cosy Jones of this city received a letter that was similar in address. Miss Jones held this letter a few days. On September 7th, the postoffice inspector came with the letter which we sent to the department which had been turned over to him to investigate. The in spector asked us if any one else had received a letter similar in address and we told him that we knew of no one unless it was Miss Jones and that he might call and inquire if he chose, He did so and Miss Cosy produced the letter and gave it to the inspector, he immediately compared the letters and found the handwriting almost identi cal and the contents were also similar containing the same proposition al most. But now oear this . fact in mind, this letter was signed C. E. Dudrowe, Wa-Keeuey, Kansas. Now, who was Mr. C. E. Dudrowe? Well, we didn't know but we waited for de velopments and they came, for in a very few days after the letter was written to Miss Jones, Mr. Rinker came to the window and asked for Mr. Dudrowe's mail, as Mr. Dudrowe himself never called for his mail and never had been heard of in tbese parts the inspector quickly decided that Mr. Rinker was sailing under a flcti tious name which is an offense within itself. We firmly believe that if Mr. Rinker wished to prove his innocence n this matter that if he would pro duce Mr. Dudrowe or give us his ad dress this matter could easily and rapidly be cleared up in regard to himself. Now bear in mind who is Mr. Dudrowe? Where does be live? What is his business, and what does Mr. Rinker want witli his mail? Looks a little like there is something rotten in Denmark some place. Seems if Mr. Dudrowe wanted to corres pond with Miss Jones that he would be able to take care of his own mail. Now, our readers have the facts in this case just exactly as they have oc curred, and as this matter first 'came up on the 22nd day of August, nearly three months before election, in all fairness, we would like to ask why people think this was hatched up either by myself or any other Repub lican in this county? Answer this question fair and honest. We simply done our duty as postmaster and if we had it to do over again would do the same thing, and we want the peoole of this town and county to under stand that just so long as we retain our position as postmaster that we will contiuue to do our duty as strict ly as the regulations of the office re quire regardless who it implicates. That is what we are paid for and that is what we will do so long as we are in office. Mr. Rinker infers it was a scheme on our part, but after read ing our article a fair minded man can see that we had nothing to do with it except to turn it over to the proper authorities after which we had nothing more to do with the matter, besides we aid not know who the wri ter of the letters was no more thau some cne on the outside would. The postoffice detective worked up the case slowly and carefully and all his evidence pointed to Mr. Rinker, and now all that can be done will simply be to wait until the case comes up in the federal couit and Mr. Rinker's guilt or innocence is established, but a grand jury seldom indicts a man without pretty conclusive evidence as to his guilt. Mr. Rinker was inter viewed by the postoffice inspector in August; he did not lose much time in circulating the report that this was being done to down him politically, and in the face of the stories that he told the Democrats were willing to nominate him tor representative in their convention September 17, 1904, and then when the matter comes to a point they are mad at themselves to think they were not a little mote con servative iu the matter, and now wish to charge the Republicans with starting it for political ends which is absolute rot. Now we feel that we have showed this matter up as it is. and all we ask is that our readers will look at it in an unbiased light and let their reason convince them whether or hot it is a campaign lie or a fact The U. S. government don't care for politics, be he Democrat or what, no man can misuse the mails with out the risk of punishment, and when the case comes up before the United States -Commisssoner, as it will, for Mr. Rinker lias given $1,000 bond for his appearance, the people or Trego county will be given the evidence of whethe.- he was.guii y oi. tins onense or not. And in conclusion- will say we are willing to make affidavit that neither myself or any Republican in Trego county has in any way instigated tbese charges against Mr. Rinker. If this is blackmailing Mr. Rinker has a good cause tor damage. H. S.
