Nov. 2, 1911. . Hon. I. T. Purcell, County Attorney, Wa-Keeney, Kans. Dear Sir: Referring again to our correspondence and conversation in regard to whether or not the Board of County Commissioners have auth ority to pay a bounty for the killing of jack rabbits or for jack-rabbit scalps, I beg to say that my former opinion which was written to yon some time ago was based upon an in vestigation of the General Statutes of 1909, and from an examination of the 1909 Statutes, I determined that there was no such authority. A fur ther examination, however, reveals the fact that In the Gen. Statutes of 1901 and 1905 was printed chapter 90 of the session laws of 1S89 which provided that the county board may pay a bounty for the killing of' wolf, coyotes, wildcat, fox and rabbits. This section has never been repealed either directly or by implication. Later sections have covered the sub jects of wolf and coyotes and chapter 90 would probably be held to be re pealed as to wolf and coyote scalps by their enactment covering the same subject, under the same rule that the last expression of the Legis lature will prevail. However, there has been no subsequent legislation in regard to the bounty on rabbits. I have taken the matter up with the Hon. C. F. W. Dassler of Leaven worth and have before me his reply in which he states that Chapter 90 was omitted from the 1909 compila tion of the statutes by mistake. I am therefore of the opinion that Chapter 90, of the laws of 1899 as it appears in section 1857 of the Gen. Statutes of 1901 is still in full force and effect as to the rabbit bounty and the board of commissioners have am ple authority to pay such a bountv. JOHN S. DAWSON. SOME TAFT SENTIMENT Judge Ruppenthal has been lately seeking" expressions on presidential possibilities in Kansas and the the judge says that it is the general opinion of the republicans and demo crats alike that Taft will be renomin ated, although LaFollette has many followers and some disstisfied repub licans are inclined toward Wilson, although he is a democrat. The dem ocrats who are looking for a man who can be supported by men of all par ties are looking to Wilson, and not at all to Clark. Among the democrats the favor is fairly well divided between Wilson and Clark, and there is rarely a Har mon democrat to be found so the judge says. The republicans mostly approve the president's stand on ar bitration but do not approve his re ciprocity policy. HARMON POPULAR Mr. O. E. Wendt of Colorado Springs, Colo., was in this city Tues day night, stopping here on his way home from Sedalia, Mo. Mr. Wendt is leisurly making his way home by auto. In speaking of politics, Mr. Wendt says: "I am surprised at the feeling of the people toward Governor Harmon of Ohio for the Democratic presiden tial nomination. Among the farmers of Missouri and Eastern Kansas, he is very strong. This talk about Clark is not considered at all serious in Missouri and that state when the time comes will be for Harmon for President." "No, I'm not a democrat. I shall vote and work for Taft." TUESDAY'S ELECTIONS Kentucky Democratic by 25,000; state republican last election. Cincinatti, Cleveland, and Colum bus, Ohio, elect Democratic mayors. . Virginia Solidly democratic. New Mexico Democratic. Massachusetts Re-elects, F o s s , democrat, governor. New Jersey Gov. Wilson's candi dates ana organization routed, re publicans carry everything.

LAST RQLL CALL Last' Saturday afternoon, Josiah East died at the home "of Samuel Parks,' north of town, after a year or more of failing health. Mr. East came to Trego county nearly twenty- five years ago and has been one of its honored and respected citizens up to the time of his death. He w as born in Illinois, March 15, 1846, and was a veteran of the civil war, having join ed an Illinois company of volunteers and served until the close of the war when he was honorably discharged. Mr. East was a quiet man who at tended strictly to his own affairs. He possessed a kindly nature and his honest, upright mode of living won the respect and admiration of those who knew him. For the last several months he had been threatenedwith blindness and after a complication of stomach and liver trouble arose, he failed rapidly in health and strength. Ellsworth East, the only relative able to come, arrived to attend the funeral which took place Wednesday morning at the Methodist church, conducted by the pastor, Rev.Greene. The Kieverson Quarteete furnished the music. The remains were laid to rest in the Wa-Keeney cemetery. He is survived by three sisters and four brothers besides Ellsworth East, who is here settling up his buisness. UNFAIR TO THE WEST Why is Western Kansas so persis tently ignored In the location of the State institutions? Why is the em pire west of Ellsworth considered be yond tlie dead line and out of the range of human possibilities by those who have in hands the distribution of State institutions'? West of the ninety-eighth meridian of longitude lies the Empire of the grass lands. Men have grown old and grey in this western third of Kansas fighting the battles of the frontier and making an agricultural empire of the millions of semi-arid acres that stretch away to meet the sun. When Kansas came into the Union as a new state the western third was considered a liability in stead" of 'an asset. The1 settlers of western Kansas are men of nerve and brain and brawn who have scent fifty long weary years, who have stayed and helped and hoped and prayed and made an Empire. Each December for fifty long years the men of this western Empire-have turned the golden sheckles into a state treasury that has abso lutely no limit to capacity. The subduing of the grass lands of this vast empire lias cost some rich red blood. Through tears and prayers and unremitting toil the prairie has been made to yield up it's fruit. These western Kansas men have fought their fight alone, unaided by a state that has accepted the monet- ery contribution from the land it almost scorned. Instead of a liability fifty years has transformed the Empire of the grass lands into a genuine, gilt edged asset of a great Commonwealth. In all these years western Kansas has been tolerated but never welcomed into full fellowship in the making of a state. We're too dry out here to produce anything but taxes.' It's all right for us fellows to live here and pay our tax but it would'nt do for a state institution to come out where we live. That's out of the question. Isn't it time for the great state of Kansas to slip up behind these old boys wbo have made the west, slap them on the back and say: "You've made an Empire out of the desert out there. Go to it fellows, we are with you." Oakley Graphic. TO MARK THE ROAD The commercial club of Ellis have had a number of signs painted for the purpose of marking the automo bile road in this part of thestate. The signs are about 13 inches wide and by 22 inches long and they will be placed along the road both east and west of Ellis so that tourists may travel without the necessity of get ting off the road or stopping at every turn to enquire the way. The signs read as follows: Colly er, IKams,, Friday, November 17, '11 ' This dance will be given in Razak Hall. It will be one of the big dances of the season. Music by the Ellis Or chestra.

YE7TTER, Agent PHONE 2 - -EXTRA SESSION POSSIBLE Governor Stubbs stated Sunday ; that there are many people in the state urging him to call an special session of the legislature to enact a presidential preference law. He also stated that he is very much in doubt if a presidential primary held with out a law would be practical. "Where did you boys get the spec ial session idea?" he asked of the reporter-. . He was told that special session talk had loomed up as big as a house about the capitol for a week. "Who told you?"' he abked. 'Who did you talk to about' it?" was the reply. "I'm not saying," he replied. "I did talk to a couple of men recently about it." "Do you think that a primary without a law would be practical?" was asked. . "I doubt it very much," he an swered. "Now I don't say that it can't be worked out, but I have my doubts that it can be done satisfac tory." .
