Soon A. We don't go a cent on bringing up these old war issues, as an argument against Harris. We oppose Ilarris because he was a traitor to the Popu list party and principles all the way through. It is a little strange, how ever, that the Colby Free Press should be the first to defend Ilarris against an attack made on his war record by Duval of the Norton Courier. We 3on't know anything about Harris' bushwhacking record forty years ago. Neither do we care. It is not a ques tion at issue now. But we do know that the records show that he has got one of the worst political bushwhack ing records of any political man in Kansas in a dozen years, and his strikers all over Kansas are still at it, as the Jim Buck letter fully explains. The chances are that bushwhacking was quite popular on both sides about 43 yearn ago, but that is no excuse for a man allowing that characteristic to predominate in his make up in these , times of peace, to the extent of be traying the people to the corpora tions, after pledging them by plat form not to do it. This is recent his tory that concerns you and me. Do you deny that he did that very thing? Great man, indeed: Smith C?nter Messenger. The Kingman Leader-Courier gives the following directions as to the proper way to enter a country news paper offiGe: "Advance to the inner door and give three distinct raps. The 'devil' will attend your alarm. You give him your name, postoflice address and the number of years that yon are owing for the papei. He will then admit you. You will advance to the center of the room, address the editor with the following counter sign: Extend the right hand about two feet from the body, with the thumb and index linger clasping a $10 bill which drops into the extended hang of the editor at the same time saying, 'Were you looking for iue?' The editor will say, 'You bet.' After giving him the news you will be obliged to retire with a receipt for the obligation properly discharged." It has beeo three years now since we have heard a roar about the chinch bug, says the Mail and Breeze. The other day a farmer made the joyous announcement that the cold, wet springs and floods we had a few seasons since had practically exter minated the chinoh bug. We trust the gentleman is right, but it is not well for the spirit of mortal to be proud. There is no question about the chinch bug having had hard sled SI a m - m tw iviother s siar ! !'

The female chinch bug, when conditions are fayorable, can rear a healthy family of 14,000 chil dren within a week, and within two months she can be the grandmother of 60,000,000 descendants and take care of her regular household duties at the same time. Until we have evi dence that the last chinch, bug has been gathered to her long home we will have a lingering dread that soon er or later she and her progeny will come back .with appetites renewed and the way they will clean np vege tation will be a caution. ' Pottawatomie Indian reservation in Jackson county is rapidly coming under the domination of the white man, says the Holton Signal. Under the law, the allotment of a .dead In dian can be sold by the heirs. The heirs generally make haste to dispose of the property, for they need the money. Perhaps 500 white families have bought homes on the reserva tion, and are living there. A good many Indians have adopted the ways of the whites and gone to making a living at farming. There have been several inter-marriages, and these families are farming. The number of full blood Pottawatomies is growing smaller every year. A petition is pending before the board of county commissioners to make a township out of the reservation. The petition doubtless will be granted, in time. The creation of a township will mark the beginning of the end of the Pot tawatomie tribe, and the elimination of its reservation in Kansas. A man was heard to remark on the streets one day last week that he would as soon believe that man eyo luted from a camel as to believe he sprang from a monkey. "We hadn't," says the Sedgwick Pantograph. "Tire camel will work seven days without drinking, and a man occasionally drinks seven days without working. If one is to be judged by habit, he might be lead to believe that a man sprang from goats. They are the only animals that pester tobacco, wear whiskers and are inclined to butt in." When you go to hire a boy says the Arkansas Traveler, send hjm out to your barn to feed your horse. If he cleans the feed box out before putting in the corn, hire -him. He will be neat about his work. On the other hand, if he throws the corn into the feed box among a lot of cobs left from the preceeding meal, don't hire him. lie will be careless and slovenly m his work.

KEEP YOUR BLOOD CLEAN Boys, here is the best argument against drink, You cannot take a litte without taking more. Here is a true story, and there are thousands of similar cases the country over. A man in a neighborsng town had a position at 8250 a month for one of the big corporations of the country. tThe man was such a fine workman and so genuinely reliable that his company never even had hUn checked up. But the man got to taking a drink on cold mornings to warm him ap. Then he got to taking another to give him an appetite. To this were gradually :idded a "mornings morning" a "night-cap" and various other drops for every hour in the day. Of course his company found it out. The man's affairs were straight, but no one wants a drunkard in his em ploy, however straight he may "be otherwise. The man's' handsome home is now for -rent, he is living with his wife's folks while-he "looks around for something . to do." But the man is all in, no one will even let him clean an alley.

Keformer from Chicago Making .No Headway. People Refuse to Enthuse Oyer Imported Candidates. Topeka, July 11. One of the things which has' taken the enthusiasm out of the democratic leaders was the "grand opening" of the democratic campaign at Fort Scott. This was such a lamentable failure from the standpoint of numbers in attendance that even the newspapers friendly to the democratic cause -failed to attempt to give the attendance figures. The opening was in a hall which would accomodate 3,000 people and there never were more than fOO in the building at one time. Everything had been done to bring a big crowd to the meeting. The . size of the county convention had been trebled, making 600 instead of the usual 200 delegates and invitations had been scattered broadcast ' throughout the state for leading democrats. The Fort Scott band was employed to furnish music and bring a crowd and it played In front of the building for 30 minutes after a street parade. Despite these attempts to swell the crowd, the street fair In progress on an. adjoining street had more spectators than the democratic opening. Col Harris is said to be very much discouraged by the showing that has been made. The democratic leaders promised hm before he was nominated that the people would make his campaign for him and that he need not concern himself except to make plans to spend a day or two in the state toward the end of the campaign. Immediately after the riomination had been made, however, the people lost interest in the im ported candidate and left the cam paign to him. He has called on his supporters for' an understanding of the situation and says that he will give up the fight at once If the pro mised support of the leaders is not given him. TIBBLES TALKS. riisncru Harris With Opposition to W. J. Bryan. Topeka, July 11. Thomas Tibbies, of Nebraska, two years ago the pop ulist candidate for vice president, who was In Topeka to attend the populist state convention, expressed the pop ulist distrust of Harris and his crowd of silk stocking democrats in a terse and open way that is worry ing the democrats greatly. He said: "Col. Harris may protest all Ihe pleases that he . never said that he H1 not want Bryan to come into this Ftate to speak, but we fellows living in Nebraska know better. We have r-ad it Intimated to us several times that Senator Harris and his friends in this state had no use for Bryan r.nd that they did not want him or any other man who is his friend to come Into this state to assist In the campaign. "We know this man Har ris well. He Is a natural aristocrat. He has nothing in common with the men who have been behind for years. He is playing the part . in this state of a southern aristocrat and believe that he belongs with the upper -class. "The people are not yet prepared to support that sort of a man very enthusiastically. He may deny until he Is black In the face, but we Bryan men of Nebraska know that he is opposed to Bryan and opposed to all that Bryan stands for. We remember that he opposed Hearst and fought for Parker in tb- state convention to years ago. He says now that he was not for Parker, but he seems to have an impediment In his veracity or to believe that we have short mem ories." PASS AN ISSUE. R. M. Chenanlt. 'of Ft. Seott. Sara Democrats Use Then. Fort Scott, July 11. Rube Chenanlt of this city, says he is slated to make 33 democratic speeches this cam paign and that it is an awful job. The republicans see where Rube is right. But there Is one thing that Rube will not talk against on the stump and that Is the railroad pass. "I have no sympathy for that issue," said he, "I am going to ride on railroad passes whenever I can during the campaign and If the-democratic managers don't like It they can go hence. But I guess they will not kick much. I understand they all ride on them now." TAFT MAY SPEAK. Irrntarr of Wnr Will be IsTltrJ br Repnnlleans. Topeka!, July 11. Secretary ' Taft will come west, in October to make a tour of the army posts in Kansas. A partial promise to speak In the state for the republicans has been made and this will be revived by an invi tation from the state committee at the proper time. Other speakers of prominence will be invited during the campaign. KEEFER IN EARNEST. - Smy Harris is as, Baenr a the . Reforaa Fanes. Topeka, .July 11. The populists hare pat out a state ticket of fighters. Horace A. Keefer, the 'nominee for governor, has always been ".in Jthe thick of the fights that his party has made. He believes it is right now, as in the past, and that that Harris Is one of the worst enemies of the populist party. Mr. Keefler said: "Harris has selected Hugh Farrelly, of Neosho, and W. H. Ryan, of Craw ford, for the leading members Jin his bodyguard in this campaign. This is because when Farrelly and Ryan were in the state senate they did everything they could to Injure the cause of the populists. They threw cold water on our scheme and in fact helped Harris in his attempt to destroy ns. "Of course, Harrl3 and his friends would have liked for us to adjourn without nominating a ticket. We would not Indorse that gang, how ever, and we have started in to build up the populist party to the size and importance of the organization before Harris and his followers began to try to tear us down. I am going to make a school house campaign. Some of the democrats may charge that we put up this ticket for the pur pose of injuring their chances, but the republicans have as good a right to make the charge. Many of our supporters would have voted for Gov. Hoch in preference to the man who has been the enemy of our organiza tion." CAN NOT WIN. Democrats Hopeless Wlrhoot FbiIod Deal. Topeka, July 11. The. Democratic party has carried Kansas once since the organization of the state. That was when George W. Glick was elected over Gov. St. John on an anti-prohl bitlon platform. Since then Kansas democrats have been triumphant only when allied with the populists. For eight years they have been defeated despite a fusion alliance with the populists. What show have they this year wtien going it alone? And why are they going it alone? Not because they did not want populist assistance. The democrats siade every effort to inveigle the populists into a fusion arrangement. Hired representatives of the demo cratic committee worked with the populist delegates to convert them to Harris. But Harris record' on railroad legislation was known to the populists and it was against him. For once the democrats were unable to fool the populists with smooth ' political schemes. Taken all In all things have been going so as to convince the democrats that is is all up with them. Some ol them admit the truth now and others will be doing so within three weeks. The campaign managers will hang on hoping until the end, of course, but they know now that they are hoping against reason. MISSOURI IDEA. Rtdienlons Snaja-estlon that Hoch la With Rockefeller. Topeka, July 11. "I see. that the Kansas City Star is now trying to make it appear that Gov. Hoch is hooked up with Rockefeller," said a prominent Kansan the other day. "Of course its object In doing this is to try and hurt Hoch with the people of the state, but it will not get very far with its scheme. The people of Kansas know that Gov. Hoch was standing up scrapping Mr. Rockefel ler and his Standard Oil tru3t before the Kansas City Star had discovered that Rockefeller and the Standard had horns. It would not surprise some people If it developed that the Star was using the Rockefeller talk in order lo heat Hoch in the inter ests of Rockefeller." WANTED A JOB. Reasons Why ' Editor Girard Press Rotted the Tlcbet. Topeka, July 11. Z. E. Wyandt editor of the Girard press recently bolted the republican state ticket -and explained with a great deal of self glorification the high minded principle which caused his espousal of the demo cratic panorama from Chicago and elsewhere. Mr. Wyandt supported the republican ticket immediately after the state con vention in Topeka He, while so doing, asked Gov. Hoch to dismiss the present superintendent at the Soldiers' Orphans home at Atchison and give him the place. This was the last of many places which Wyandt sought and failing to land bolted the ticket headed bv Gov. Hoch "as a matter of princi ple." ' - TWO TARIFF WAYS. One Per as Panics the Other m. Basl ness Proposition. Topeka, July 11. The democrats are reviving the tariff question again. They are trying to make it appear that the republicans hold the Dingley schedule as sacred and are opposed to any tariff tinkering. .The fact is the republican platform declares for tariff revision and the people of the state will no doubt rather trust the republicans to revise the tariff than the , democrats. The republicans would change the schedule and equal ize things. The democrats would wipe out tariff entirely and bring on conditions such as the country ex perienced from 1893 to 1893. FURNITURE!
