Stockton, Kansas. The Primary Law. A good many people have in quired of us the size of a petition necessary to get a name on the ticket for a county office. A can didate for a county office must get at least three per cent of his party vote in at least one-fourth of the precints of the county. There being nine precincts in Trego county a candidate must therefore circulate his petition in at least thi-ee townships. The vote at the last general election on Secretary-of State in the vari ous townships was: "Jthe only measure Mr. Cannon ever even suggested as to now x j ought to vote on. . .

It was settled up, abandoned, re settled again, abandoned, and now we hope it is at last on per manent line of improvement. Thirty years ago wooden pins were driven into the ground, to permanently (?) mark lots and boundaries so laid out. In the coming and going, the ' plowing up and changing that has taken place many of those original stakes are gone or decayed and uncertain measurements , by many and different parties have changed the boundaries in some cases until now few know to a certainty where they are. We believe the time has come to make an end to all uncertainty, and to so mark each portion that it can never be lost, and acting upon a petition widely signed, I have already done some prelim inary work.

A republican therefore would have to get a total of not less than 17 names on his peti tion and could have as many as 54. If, for instance, he circulated his petition in three precincts, say Franklin, Banner and Collyer, he would have to get at least 1 in Franklin, 2 in Banner, and then he could get the other 14 in Coll yer if he so desired. The peti tion required is exceedingly small and will not stand in the way of anyone being a candidate. MR. REEDER'S DENIAL. Says Stories Circulated That He Was For Knox Were False. Beloit, Kansas, April 11, 1908. Editor Beloit Daily Times: - Will you kindly print the enclosed letter from Mr. Reeder, which "seems necessary in order to nail a lie or two going . the rounds of the newspapers, that are opposing Mr. Reeder's candidacy for Congress, throughout the dis trict. Very truly yours, W. H. Mitchell. Strap n To feel strong, have good ap petite and digestion, sleep sound ly and enjoy life, use Burdock Blood Bitters, the great system and tonic builder. . Pickled pork at Baker's. Washington D. C. April 4, '08. My dear Mitchell: Replying to your letter of recent date I have this to say. It is strange how far some men .will go to carry forward an opposition to some certain candidate for some trivial reason. The statements going the rounds of the papers opposing me, that I am for Knox for presi dent, is absolutely false, and was started by an editor whom I would gladly have accommodated by recommending his son'for post master, but could not do so except in opposition to nearly all the leading republicans of his town. - - Ever since President- Roose velt decided he wouldnotbe a can didate, I have been for Secretary Taft for president, and have never had a second choice. Then there is the story being copied quite generally that Speaker Cannon controls my vote. This is absolutely false; Speaker Cannon only once tried to tell me how he thought I ought to vote, and that was on the Statehood bill, and after he got through with his talk telling me why he thought I should support the bill, I told him that I thought him wrong, as I believed the ter ritories should themselves de cide whether they would come in as One state, and that I should work and vote against, tee bill as then written. Myself ami forty four other members worked and voted against it. and defeated became convinced that nothing but a systematic survey of the whole could be of any use, and no one party could afford to pay the necessary cost to absolutely establish the corners on the identical spot where they were first set by Peck & Ellsworth. I have already uncovered enough of the old stakes to know that the original survey was very exact, although no. two " blocks are exactly the same size neither rectangles or squares, yet the stakes were put where the plat says they were, and not where some people think they were. I believe it to have been a mistake not to have laid off the town at right angles and the blocks of uniform size, but with that I have nothing to do, I have to find where they really were, and re store them, more to restore them m such a manner that they never again will be lost. As to expense, compare it with this To survey a township it costs about $1.75 per quarter section. A sinsrle Quarter sec tion will sometimes cost $20j The townsite entire will be but a few cents, not to exceed 10 or 15 cents per lot, while a single lot in some parts could not be ab solutely established under sev eral days work; further all meas urements hitherto made are not surveys. Anyone can measure where his land ought to be, but that does not establish a corner The law provides only one way. A man may be satisfied with his supposed corner, but the land is not his if it belongs to someone else, neither is it his if it belongs to the city. I am a sworn officer and all who work under me are sworn both .as to faithfulness and impartial work. Lastly, I shall prove to all who wish to investi gate the work that I know what I am doing and how to do it. No lot can be defined unless the block is known any more than a center can be found in a section before one knows where the corners of the section are. Sooner or later this must be done, and the sooner the better, before more permanent improve ments are misplaced. Hudson Harlan, County Surveyor. A Full Line of Hardware. Public Sale!
