FOLEY IS III OFFICE.
Ken Utilities Commissioner Sworn in
Judge C. F. Foley of Lyons was to
day formally sworn into office as a
member of the public utilities com
mission to succeed Henderson Martin,
resigned. Foley will probably move
to Topeka at once and will make his
home here during his term of office.
Since the appointment of Foley by
Governor Hodges, criticism has been
raised as to the sincerity of Foley's
Democracy. In Rice county, how
ever, Foley's Democracy has been ac
cepted as the genuine article. He was
twice elected to the legislature' in a
district that claims a strong Republi
can majority and was once beaten for
district judge after a close fight. In
the legislature, Foley was the leader
of the minority during the 1907-09
sessions. It was while Foley was
serving in the legislature that Gov
ernor Stubbs offered him a place on
the tax commission. Foley declined
to accept the appointment.
The place on the utilities commis
sion to which Foley has been appoint
ed carries with it a salary of $4,000 a

sentative from Washington. D. C, in
selecting the location, and they would
only consider the one location. The
Thomas county high school is situ
ated on this farm, and Mr. Jardine
said it must be right there against
this school, and It would be of great
value to the school, as the class in
agriculture could have the full bene
fit of all the farm work and lec
tures occasionally by its managers.
This land was owned by W. S. Fer
guson and Ike W. Crumly, both pio
neers in Thomas county, and who had
built it up at their own expense to
what it is now. and it will be ready
for what the state wants with small
expense and certainly was a good
choice on the part of the committee.
This part of the state has had lit
tle consideration from the agricul
tural department on account of be
ing considered the arid region, but
the representative from Washington
states that his department realizes
that something should be done for It,
and expects to do things in the fu
ture. We hope for great good to the
country from the farm in our midst.
