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. . . '- . . i

The town of Wa-Keeney was i
laid out thirty years ago. 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.
I have been called upon time

county. 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.
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.

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
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.
