The stores would stand it as long as thev could, then move away. Banks would elose their doors. The newspapers would have to quit. The hotels would co out of business, the mechanics I move away, schools and churches dwindle, sidewalks ro to wreck, build ings would become vacant, unpainted and dilapidated, strangers would take lone look and flee.

CIlnlfKY PECTCi.iL. 11 'J ; PLEDGES REDEEMED. Records wtmA Recommendations Made tr Republican Administration. Topeka, July 16. The ,6tate officers are now preparing their biennial re ports and the recommendations they are making for new laws by the next legislature insure the enactment of 6 number of reform measures. The officers whose terms will expire next January will have served the state for four years and they have become well acuainted enough with the needs of their various departments to make recommendations which are valuable. They realize the needs of their offices and if the legislature will follow their suggestions the state probably will be In better shape from the stand point of good laws than it has been In years. ' . In his message to the legislature of 1905, Gov. Hoch recommended a number of good laws and many of them were enacted. It Is understood that many of the measures he recom mended and were not enacted Into law will again be suggested to the legislature next 'winter. Among these are the good roads law. The gov ernor believed and still believes that the state ought to spend more money in bettering the conditions of Its roads. Several good roads measures were Introduced in the legislature, but all of them met with defeat. - The governor also recommended a primary election law and he will re commend the passage of such a law by the next legislature. He has paid a great deal of attention to the work ings of primary election laws in other states and will be able to re commend a law which will meet with the approval of the people of all parts of the state. He Is not pledg ing prospective members of the legis lature to vote for the measures he favors, but he will be prepared to suggest for their consideration a better measure than they have con sidered. J. R. Burrow, secretary of state, will suggest -the enactment of laws which will result in a saving to the state. One of the important meas ures which he will suggest will pro vide for the state publicaton of the revised edition of the statutes. This work has heretofore been done by private concerns and the cost to the state has been enormous. The state uses about 7,000 copies of the revised statutes every time they are revised and this number of copies cost about $12,000. Mr. Burrow believes that this number of statutes could be printed by the state at a cost of about $6,000 and that the cost could be paid by the sale of copies which the attorneys in the state will need. He has recommended that the gov ernor ask the legislature to enact a law requiring the reporter for the su preme court to revise the statutes every two years to be printed by the state printer. These columns last week mentioned Z. E. Wyandt as editor of the GIrard Press. Mr. Wyandt, who bolted the republican ticket because Gov. Hoch did not turn out an old soldier and make a place for Wyandt as superin- tendent of the soldiers' orphans' home at Atchison, edits the Girard Independent-News. Mr. Wasser, the publisher of the Press, is one of the pioneer republicans of Kansas and always supports the ticket and the principle which prompts him to do so is not based on office seeking de signs. , DEMOCRATS DISCOURAGED. Harris Calls for Help and None Is in Sisht. Topeka, July 16. The rumors that W. A. Harris, of Chicago, contem plates withdrawing as the democratic candidate for governor of Kansas will not down despite the desperate denials of W. H.' Ryan, chairman of the democratic campaign committee. Of course feyan is to be expected to deny the truth of ihe rumors but he cannot alter the fact that Harris has repeatedly expressed disappoint ment since the failure of the opening democratic meeting. When Harris accepted the nomination he was in flueneed to believe that Kansas was afire , with a demand that he be "drafted" as the democratic candidate for governor of the state. It is true that he knew nothing of the polit ical situaion in Kansas and that he took the statements of pretended friends on trust but their protesta tions were so profuse that he "-was really persuaded that there was in tense dissatisfaction among the re publicans. However, the "mail order" candi date has failed to find the dissatis faction among republicans and now realizes that he has been "gold bricked." The democrats who pledged that they would make his campaign for him are now all "too busy" to devote time to politics and Harris and Ryan are left to go it alone. Harris sees the end. He knows now that he is defeated and wants to let loose. He has said re peatedly that he is disappointed. Mr. Ryan may be able to hold Harris on the track until election but he will be unable to fool people into the be lief that Harris does not realize that he has no show. It is ! certain to day that Harris would withdraw as a gubernatorial candidate If he could be shown that his action would not cause, him to be characterized as quitter." The failure of the Ft. Scott meeting and the x populist defection have combined to take all the glngej :1 This 71 ark Tells You What to buy if you want pure, wholesome, de licious -FOOD PRODUGTS.

The figures published in the State Journal yesterday showing the In crease of taxable wealth in the Fifth and Sixth districts, are indicative of the way in which eentral and western Kansas are advancing. An analysis of these figures is really remarkable. In the Sixth district, for instance, the increase in taxable wealth was nearly ten per cent. That is, in addition to what the people spent for living and to pay their debts, they saved nearly ten per cent of what they were worth at the be ginning of the year. At this rate the average person in the Sixth district will have doubled his capital in a little more than ten years. This is remarkable when ap plied to the "average" person. One can pick out individuals here and there who will do much better than that, but when the people as a whole in a region two hundred miles long and ninety miles wide accomplish that feat, it is little less than won derfal. However, even these figures do not represent the actual advance that has been made in wealth out there. Farm lands ar assessed at from one-fifth to one-third of their selling; value. In Graham county as an example. land is selling at, from twelve to twenty dollars an acre and land buy ers complain that this is too high. Yet Lieutenant Governor, llanna, who is a large land owner in Graham county recently told the writer that his land is netting him 8 per cent on a valuation of from forty to sixty dol lars an acre. Its value as an income producer shows what property is actual worth and measured in this way central and western Kansas is becoming moreand more wealthy at a rapidly increasing rate. State Journal. One of the astonishing results, in the line of spring wheat raising, is 275 acres of fine Macaroni wheat, one mile soutli of Goodland, sowed on sod and fallow ground breaking from May 1 to May 20. ButastonUliing, though it is, the fine field of waving grain, headed out and tilling nicely, speaks for itself with an estimated yield of from 1 to 25 bushels per acre. It is wonderful Goodland Republican. OVER THE WORLD in a carriage is uot an impossible trip. But the carriage has got to be a (rood one.
