The Republican ticket is good nongh (or Abilene. A little more ol this oometllke weather and harvest will be with us. Summer must have a pass or It would not be here until the 2-cent mileage books take elToot. Abilene was on the map all right Sunday. But it always is, for that matter. Dowle is dead and gone to his re ward. Now when Mrs. Eddy leaves us there ought to be a rest from afflic tion of this sort for quite awhile. The eastern papers devote a good deal of editorial space to Mr. Burton. His paper is getting some free ad vertising that ought to make It go. Kansas is a great dairy state and Is continually boasting of its butter products but it feeds the inmates of its state institutions on oleomar garine! A fine advertisement that is for Kansas! Mr. Burton' Home Coming;. The rooeptlon given ex-Senator Bur ton by his home town is a striking example of the absolute independence and loyalty of the American people. The reception Is non-partisan, non- political and with malice toward none. It has been simply the outward expression of the town's respect for one who has long been Its resident and its belief that he has been given more than his deserts in the punish ment heaped him. Mr. Burton him' self has shown a line spirit through it all. He has maintained a courtesy and a dignity that has added to his standing and he will take his place in business and political life without loss of friendship here at home where he is known best. Abilene has a way of being frankly Independent and Its kindly action in greeting Mr. Burton is an example of its sentiments. This paper is in favor of a whipping post for wife beaters, child beaters and horse beaters. The sooner a few brutes in human form, like the one who abused a defenseless horse Sun' day, get their deserts the better. . Senator Brewer has reason to be proud of the resolutions adopted by the State Dairymen's association com mending his work for the great dairy Interests of Kansas. The creamery has helped the Kansas farmer more than any other one Interest of later years and it is something to have helped It forward. It is notloeable that a number of elf-glorified persons, both locally and in other parts of the country, are throwing rooks at Mr. Burton. It Is also generally known that these persons are living in houses almost entirely constructed of glass. Were ' it not for the self-styled holy, this evnrlrf wmiM he rnhhari nf nn. nl Its prinolpal souroes of amusement Hope Dispatch: Several senators brass bands when they returned to their homes from Topeka, because they had stood for what was known as the square deal erowd. Well, Sen ator Smoot was also mat by a brass band when he oame home from Wash' ington and the brass band signifies just as much one plaoe as the other. This is the way Iowa Republican papers talk about the primary plan: "One trial of minority nominating is sufficient for us. The majority at Dee Moines may force snoh a law upon the people, bat the Reporter wants to state frankly and clearly 1. . .

Roosevelt and the "Square Deal." Lawrence Gazette: Congressman Bowersock says that a senator whose veracity Is unquestioned as the verac ity of all United States senators must of necessity be, told him this story. One day a man went to the president and endorsed and urged the candidacy of a man for offioe. In closing his plea, the senator said, "This man is a Square Dealer." The president re flected a moment, and then said: Perhaps I am responsible for that term in politics, although I got it from the gamblers In the west. For a time it seemed good to me. But I have learned that every crook and every dealer from the bottom has named himself a Square Dealer. When a man came into a frontier town and announced himself that way he was barred from the came. Out there a man has to prove himself square; tbey do not take his word for it. Neither will I take it here. I regard with suspicion every man who says he is a Square Dealer. He is traveling on false pretenses, or he would not have to make out his own credentials. Your friend will have to give me some assurance that he is square aside from his own declaration. Just now I shall turn him down be cause of it." Mr. Bowersock says he did not hear President Roosevelt say this, but the man to whom it was said oame out with his feathers down, and declared he would be ashamed if he ever went again to a Square Deal president with a Square Deal candidate. A dispatch to the Kansas City Star, which the Star heads, "Lucky for Western Oklahoma; a Primary would have meant two senators from the Eastern Half," says: "The plan con templated by the Democratic majority in the constitutional convention applying this favorite Democratic doctrine, Included the nomination and praottoally the election of United States senators by the direct vote of the people. Political events in the two territories in the last two months have weakened the oonfidenoe of the senatorial aspirants in the utility and fairness, from a personal standpoint, of the primary system of aemlni tlon." The reason given Is that the thlokly settled eastern half would ont-vote the thinly settled western half. Why does the Star apply thia logio to Oklahoma and deny It to Kansas' The address by Mr. Burton Satur. day evening was received In a way that must have been very pleasing to the "Speaker. While not all agree with Mr. Burton In all his Ideas and while he has political enemies that will never agree with him, the feeling tbat he did not have meted out to him the same treatment as did others In similar conditions, but on the con trary was punished while they went free, was general In the audience. He nnqnestlonably made friends and con verts by his address and its personal, dramatio appeal was felt by all. Mr. Burton's work in the future will be the real test of the speech and of his position. A man who feels that be has been unjustly treated and who has spent five months In jail may be excused for having some intense ideas on the subject. If constructive, helpful work follow, he can do much to strengthen his oause and regain his old position. "The 'moral responsibility' of train and englnemen is the subjeot of much disoussion throughout the East," says General Superintendent W. L. Park of the Union Pacific. "You see, the recent investigation of aooidents and an analysis of the Interstate Com' meroe commiss on reports reveals i startling misconception of the true condition on American railroads. The report in the Republican this morning from Conneaut, Ohio, show' ing the failure of 24 out of 25 engin eers to observe a stop signal is an il lustration of these conditions. On the Union Pacific we have made these urprise tests for a number of years back, testing the men once each month. During 1906 we had only two failures to observe signals; of course the men were temporarily di- charged. In the reports of the Inter state Commerce commissjon showing train accidents, in which the men who are charged with responsibility have been on duty more than 16 hours preceding the occurrence and classed by themselves under the head, "When working excessive hours was coinci dent," not necessarily meaning that the accident was caused by overwork, the total number of "excessive hours'' collisions was 24, resulting in proper ty loss of 8136,115 and the death of 86 others. The percentage of the total number of injuries to persons covered by these statistics was 5.4 per cent, property damage 2.9 per cent, num ber of deaths 1.8 per cent ejJHl umber of personal injuries 1.7 per cent of the respective totals." Secretary Cobura has issued sugar beet bulletin that tells of i other great Industry ia Kansas. Mr. Cobura's advocacy of beet-growing baa done more thaa any other one thing to make the southwest rich. During last fall's campaign the Demoorata wore buttons Inscribed, Harris and Two Cent Fare." The Democrats had t-eent fare la their platform; the Bepublioaas did aot. Yet when Senator Brewer was trying to get two more votes to pase his l-oent-fare bill and begged the Deroo- eratie eeeatore to help aim they eoldly and disdainfully voted against It- How It that for eoasisteaey! Oklahoma Ii Ready. The delegate convention which has been at work all winter framing an organlo law for the new state of Okla homa has completed its labors and the constitution is ready for submission to the voters sometime next summer. The enabling act provided that It must first, however, have the approval of the president and this has doubt less had a restraining effect on the provisions imposed by the delegates. The Indian Territory end of the new state has been in command of the sit uation. X '' The apportionment gave to eaoh half the state 55 delegates, but of the Oklahoma list two were from the Osage nation which lies in Oklahoma. Naturally these cast their lot with the Indian contingent; henoe the Redskin controlled the convention. It must be remembered that the Indian poli ticians of the territory have been edu cated at Carlisle, Harvard and Cor nell, for the five civilized tribes have many families that are both wealthy and aristocratic. The whites found this out early in the session and more than one projr-ot was blocked by the untutored Red Men and their allies, The matter of prohibition caused much discussion. Under the enab ling act the Indian Territory end it to be absolutely "dry" for twenty-one years and the Oklahoma end Is likely to have the same provision. The Indian thinks that what ia good for htm is likewise wholesome for his white neighbor. On some provisions concerning which the delegates felt sore the president would be displeased the convention waa wary and placed them ia the form of resolutions or In structions to the first legislature, la- stead of aa a part of the constitution. The "Jim Crew" regulations are ia this category. There is little doubt that stringent laws will be enacted oa the negro question, for the Indian is himself aa ex-elave holder and while many colors and nationalities are mingled la the dtlseashlp of the new state, such votes aa have been taken iadioate that the negro Is to receive a typical south era reception, which msaa- for the present a decidedly subordinate place ia the commonwealth.

Professor Robert Duncan explains: "The people of the country pay a laundry bill of nearly (2,000,000 per week and a sum vastly more than that to repair the fabrics which the laundry destroys. The launderers proceed with a joyous ignoranoe of the whole body of mod ern knowledge. We are going to try to change all that. In attacking the problem, Mr. Faragber who has been given the fellowship, simply puts his youth and strength and creative powers against a problem which the company with Its inside knowledge of the business believes to be soluble. If he succeeds he is to receive not merely the $500 per year, but 1-10 of the value of all that be discovers and consequently If he can lessen the damages by a fraction of a per cent we shall be asking him to give the University a Fine Art building. In addition to this, his business services will be required by the company at the expiration of the fellowship on a mutually satisfactory basis. ; d7c7h.s.
