THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION. Governor Hoch Issues One Fixing Novem ber 29. Governor Hoch has issued the fol lowing Thanksgiving proclamation: "Belief In an overruling Providence in the affairs of men has characteriz d civilized people in all agesri.From the day the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plymouth Rock down to the pres ent time it has characterized the people of this country. The custom, long established, of devoting one day to a recognition of this great faitrf ahd fact is a beautiful and appropri ate one and should constantly grow in public favor. He reads American history with i perfect vision who does not see upon every page of it the impress of an Almighty hand. Let us believe that when Columbus first stepped upon this continent and, kneeling in the sand, consecrated it to God and humanity, his act had in it both providence and prophecy, and let us belieye that the principles of civil and religious liberty represented by our civilization and symbolized by our flag will ultimately girdle and glorify this globe. For the wonderful achievements in our history and for the marvelous prosperity which has been vouchsafed to us in nation and state let' us humbly render thanks to the Giver of all good. "In full sympathy with these senti ments, in harmony with this faith, and in accordance with the time honored custom, reaffirmed "by recent proclamation from the president of the United States, I, E. W. Hoch, governor of the state of Kansas, do hereby designate Thursday, the 29th day of November, 1906, as a day of Thanksgiving and trust that the peo ple of Kansas will in public places of worship, and in private devotions make fitting acknowledgement to Almighty God for all his blessings to ub a people. "In Testimony Whereof, I haye hereunto subscribed my name and caused to be affixed the great seal of the state of Kansas. Done at Topeka, the 12th day of November, A. D., 1906. "E. W.

HolmquUt, aecompanied by sheriff of Ellis county, came up Fri day to watch the county commission ers count the votes. Mr. Holmquist Is a very suspicious' individual. He lost his vote on election day in order to be in Wallace count? and tell the people how to vote.' He then came up to see that t.he vote, was correctly counted. He could not trust our county officters to count the vote, neither could he trust the people to do their own voting. We understand Mr. Holmauist brought the sheriff of Ellis county along as a personal bodyguard. Mr. Holmquist was afraid of a mob. Gee, the Wallace county people must be a bad lot. Can't trust them to vote; can't trust them to count the vote after the voting is done; bring sheriff along as bodyguard; afraid of a mob! Mr. Holmquist had better go and soak bis head. He gives intelligent people that tired feeling you read about. . He has entirely over-estimat ed his own importance. The people of Wallace- county don't care if he comes here every election day. They don't care if he comes and brings a regiment of sheriffs to see the votes counted. They have sense enough to do their own counting and voting without the assistahceof Mr. Holm quist or anyone else. And all the people ask of Mr. Holmquist in return is that he leave his dirty lies at home and act like a gentleman while here. Sharon Springs-Times. The general public blame politi ticians with being tricky, deceitful, double dealing. The politicians haye a good deal to put up with it is a wonder eyeryone of them doesn't turn into a wolf. - People lie to them and lie about them. Men tell candi dates they are for them when talkiug to their face, and when they are out of sight they jab their snickersnice into them at least a foot, ' Somehow a lot of people have it in their beads that politics is a dirty business any way, and if they dabble in the game they have to be mean or else they are not rightly in the play. : In a horse trade and in polities most any man's conscience will stretch like a rubber garter, to suit the demands of the oc casion. With such an environment It is a wonder that men who run for office do not turn out to be human hyenas some of them do. Concordia Kansan. ...... .
