Pure home made lard at Bakers adv VFIalUlf l Kansas. f Lumber Co. Topeka, Kan., Dec. 10.' Arthur Capper, Republican candidate for Governor, today gave a statement that he would not start a contest in the State Senate for the office of Governor. His statement .is as fol lows: I believe I was elected Governor by a pluarality ef 3,000 or more. Accord ingly, I have felt in duty bound to stand by and defend the choice of the people. This I have done so long as there was a fair possibility of rectify ing the blunder made by many of the election judges in rejecting the thousand of circle and crossmarked ballots marked in my favor, which the law expressly states are legal and should be counted. In submitting this difficulty to the Supreme Court of Kansas, I appealed for redress to the highest legal tribun al in the State. The court, by a vote of live to two, under a technical con struction of tire law, was unable to find a remedy other than a recount several weeks in the future bv the Democratic Senate, a very doubtful expedient for an opponent candidate looking for justice, merely, instead of a dispute. In the meantime Mr. Hodges will have been inducted into office. He will, of course, proceed with his appointments and much of the work of the Legislature - will have been accomplished before' this partisan board in the Senate can or will take up and conclude such a contest. ' . Even if the blunder of tire election Ljudges could be righted in a political body at that late hour, which is ex tremely doubtful, I can see no hop that as governor I should be able to carry out any definite program Of legislation with a hostile .political majority against me in both branches of the Legislature. On the other hand, Mr. Hodges, working with a Legislature of his own political faith, will have an ideal opportunity to serve Kansas. I feel it is now for the best interest of the State that Mr. Hodges, and the party he represents, be given that oppor tunity, and that, so far as may be in their - labor for the public goodthat political difference be forgotten. Mr. Hodges has my best wishes for the next two years and I shall be glad to assist in any way I can in making his administration one that will be helpful to the State. I became a candidate for Governor strong in the hope that, though a pro gressive policy and a businesslike ad ministration, I should be able to do something still farther worth while for - the State in - which I was born and which has done much for me. I tried, to the best of my ability, to conduct a clean, clear-cut campaign, free from mudslinging and person alities. The result though I am deprived through technicalities of the honor I sought is not without its compensa tions both to me personally and to the cause I represented. For my handsome majority in the primary and my unquestioned election by the people of Kansas during a time of political, upheavel and with so many of the old evil influences still power fully manifest, lam keenly and deep ly appreciative. But more important than my personal feelings is this cam paign's contribution to the cause of more efficient methods in theconduct of popular elections. The spectacle of the, highest tribunal of the State with its hands hopelessly tied in a tangle of technicalities, while the people of the State - are thwarted n their expressed will, will not, I feel certain, fail to more Kansas to a much needed reform both of our elec tion laws and of our court procedure. If I hare one wish for -Kansas' and its people more than another, it is that as time goes on they will give more attention instead of, less to public matters and that they, will judge men aud measures more surely, quickly and truly. We need a live, active, efficient, progressive, patriotic and alert popular government through out Kansas and in every other State, and the surviving and quickening of tiiat Kansas spirit which has ever set us free. I shall deem it the highest privilege of my life to continue to work as best I may, to that end, and will encourage and support every measure in the interest of good government, no matter from what political party it comes.

State University Notes University of Kansas, Dec. 2 Wa- Keeney is to be represented this year in the All-Valley football squad by Harry Burnham, who has been chos en to play right guard. He played just as good tackle as guard, but was preferred in the latter position. Groft also showed up well.

A liberal supply ot fed steers . here today caused that class to sell weak to sell weak to a little lower, following a similar market on them yesterday. Butcher grades found a ready outlet at steady prices today, and stock cattle and feeders sold strong, the market in all respects very much like ' that of yesterday.' The strength in country grades of cattle is caused by a good ordinary demand for that kind, augmented by the desire of feeders who have sold their first feeding of cattle to replace them with other cattle in the empty feed lots. As long as the cattle re ceipts run as much to beef as they do this week packer bik ers will not do much riding In the feeder division of the yards, else country buyers would have extreme -difficulty in finding suitable feeding cattle. Under pres ent conditions they can be found, in sufficient numbers to satissy- those who hove the nerve to go against the heavy interest and tax expences in-, volved. Shipments to the country from here last week 18,000 head, same . week last year 10,000 head. Cattle receipts today total 16,000 head, same number received yesterday, a run slightly above normal for this season -here. Best steers . brought $10.50 today, bulk of 90 day or lesa cattle $7.00 to $9.50, quarantine fed cattle $6.00 to $7.50, low grade south ern stuff $3.50 ts $5.00, bulls $4.50 to $6.00, calves $6.00 to $10.00. Hog supplies today footed up 22,000 head, market 10 lower, packers top $7.75, though speculators paid $7.85 early, bulk $7.55 to $7.75. Packers ' are making a big fight for lower prices this week, as the present range is too high to permit of profitable, or ' at least safe packing. However, fresh meat demand absorbs nearly all the run anyway. Receipts sheep and lambs today here are 10,000 bead, market 10 to 15 high er. Some lambs sold at $7.90 yester day, others at $7.85 today, and theie seems no question about the eight dollar market for lambs this month that was promised to feeders by com mission men when they were buying their feeding stock. Choice light yearlings go up to $6.50, best wethers $5.00, ewes $4.50, all of which insure a good . profit to the producer, and a--heavy drain on the consumer. - . J. A.
