Mr. Weils in his circular letter has printed an anti-pass bill (in large type), which I voted against. In his " campaign he ' gives the people to understand that this is the bill which became a law. This is 'misleading and does me an injustice. He hedges a little on the reverse side of his circular (in fine print); but is very careful not to explain that part of it. In this manner some of the people are lead to believe that the statement I made and published in the papers of the district is false. I wish to say here that my state ments are absolutely correct.

All I ask is fair play. I have been very careful not to say anything against Mr. Wells; but I must say that I do not appreciate his way of campaigning, so far as he attempts to put me in the wrong light before the people. I will not deny anything I have done; but I object very seriously to being held responsible for something I have not done. One of Mr. Wells articles in his circular . reads thus: "In 1905 session of the Kansas Legislature Mr. Jones was a member. Rep resentative Pringle of Osage County introduced House Bill No. 280, prohibiting the issuing or giving of railroad passes. On page 922 of House Journal for the 1905 aession the Pringle anti-pass bill was killed and Mr. Jones' vote Now this is absolutely false. you will find:" . . ,' . (House Bill 28( Pringles two-cent fare Journal 1905.) Mr. Stone moved that the special order for House Bill No. 2S0 be made a special order for three o'clock this afternoon. Mr. Leland moved to amend by making it a special order for con sideration immediately after the conclusion of consideration of ap propriation bills, which notion prevailed. The question being, or? the original motion as amended Mr. Pringle demanded a roll call and a sufficient number of gentlemen joining in, the roll was called with the following result: yeas, 59, nays, 49, absent or not voting 17. - Gentlemen voting in the affirmative were: Messrs.

Larabee, county clerk of Trego county, Kansas, hereby certify that the foregoing is a true and correct copy of the record of the passage of House Bill No. 41, as recorded on page 955 of the House Journal of 1907, Senate Bill No. 2 as recorded on page 995 of the House Journal of 1907 and House Bill No. 280 as record ed on page 922 of the House Journal of 1905, showing the votes for and against the same. . Witness my hand and the seal of said county affixed at my office in the city of Wa-Keeney, in said county, this 27th day of July, A. D. 1908. W. N. LARABEE, seal. County Clerk. We, the undersigned have compared the foregoing statement' concerning House Bill No. 41 as amended, and Senate Bill No. 2, as amended, and House Bill No. 280, with the House Journals of 1905 and 1907, and find them to be in exact agreement. We also find that no vote was taken on House Bill No. 280 referred to by Mr. Wells as being killed by the vote of Dr. Jones. (See page 922 House Jour, nal of 1905.) We also find that Dr. Jones voted for the anti-pass law now in force. ( See page 955, House Journal of 1907, and page 442, Session Laws of 1907.) ' We find that he voted for the present two cent fare law. ( See House Journal of 1907, page 995, and page 440 Session Laws of 1907 A. S. PEACOCK, Probate Judge, Trego Co. ' G. G. MARSHALL, County Treasurer, Trego, Co. CHAS. RIDGWAY, Clerk of Court, Trego Co. ... W. N. LARABEE, County Clerk, Trego Co. Mr. Wells carries the recor.ds with him and while he may not show this up, if asked to do so; but you can find a copy of the same with each Representative or at the County Clerk's office. I believe that when anyone will misrepresent me to this extent I an entitled to enough of your time to investigate this. This vote on the anti pass bill was merely to postpone the action on it until the appro priation bills were disposed of. These bills are very important and as a rule take precedence over all others. You can plainly see by this that we were not voting on this bill at all, still he says "Mr. Jones' vote was recorded in favor of its death." Now, Mr. Voter, do you think it proper and safe to nominate a man who will either willfully or ignorantly misrepresent his oppo nent in this way ? In Hill City Republican, containing Mr. Wells picture and the twenty-one hundred acre farm, I notice the following: "I believe the Anti-pass law put an end to more legislative corruption than any other one measure, save possibly tne Primary law." Now, gentle men, this is the bill I voted for and this law seems to be quite satis factory to Mr. Wells. If I am nominated and any one can prove that any of these statements are not true I will resign. I think more of my word than anything else and will not make false state ments to get this office or any other. His circular also contains an article printed in the Hoxie Sentinel before I made my statement. I will say that I have not seen the editor of this paper before or since this was published, but one week later be published the following: "Dr. A. B. Jones, of Wa Keeney, candidate for the Republican nomination for state senator, was in Hoxie Saturday and appears very well satisfied with his prospects. The doctor's platform or statement which appeared in last week's Sentinel has strengthened his cause wonderfully in this country and knowing him as we have for many years, to be an hononable, upright .man, we believe that should he be elected he will live up to that statement to the letter, and represent this dis trict in a manner she has never been represented." Mr. Wells is making much of the Wells bill No. 123, a Bank Deposit bill passed at the extra session. The facts are that this bill was not even drawn by Mr. Wells but by another gentlemen who gave it to Mr. Grass tointroduce. He -not being willing to father the same, turned it over to Mr. Wells who introduced it under his own name. - ' It seems that a gentleman reformer like Mr. Wells should not resort to the unfair means he is making use of to gain the nomina tion. I am not classed as a reformer, stiU I have enough respect for myself not to mislead r deceive the voters in voting for or against anyone by misrepresenting them. If I am either nominated or de feated I want to be able to look to the people as well as my oppo nent squarely in the face. I could not do that if I had resorted to the unfair means that Mr. Wells has. --. A. B. JONES. Osburn Spitsnaugle and Miss Grace F.
