"I notice that Senator Brlscow Is
" liowl'ng about the terrible burden put
upon the people by the tariff on cot
ton," Mid J. BBrewer, one of Abi
lene' leadlug3ry good merchants
- today, "What ! the use of hia lying
bout It. Not a single piece of cotton
: toods has been Increased in price In
'- year or since the tariff law went into
tfeot. On prints, muslins, etc , the
price Is the same or lower. . More m
It is made In America which is a good
thing for our farmers who have a
market for their products."
' "Not an increase on any article of
cotton in the store," said J. B. Case
" of the Case department storee. "There
"' Is not an article we sell that Is higher
than several years ago except the
things the farmer produces and he is
getting the benefit. I do not under
. stand why Brlstaw Is talking against
the interests of the Kansas farmer
'" and misrepresenting the facts as ev
ery merchant knows."

Manhattan Nationalist: Now-Aere
is the way the Inheritance tax has
worked In Riley county the past year.
This brings It right to home. We
haven't space to mention all the un
just examples, because it would take
too much space. But lust a few spec
imen ases are given, taken trom
the records In Probate Judge Morris's
office.,; :". v .'',-, .
One school teacher waa fined
ti 89 na ciuh. because she happened
to lose her brother by death, and he
iff him little oronerty to her. This
was Jennie Knowles, of Fancy Creek
township. " Her brother, John w.
Knowles, leaving a place appraised at
$6,079. The state and county taxes
were paid which are all that any
body ought to pay. But under the
pet plan of Stubbs, this unlucky
vhnnl teacher had to get busy and
pay $182.09 In cash as an extra tax.
The widow Kaiser, of Riley, naa 10
pay an extra cash tax of $100.90 when
she lost her husband. The hand or
the state tax commission, with the
hand of Governor Stubbs behind It,
reached out and took It.
A samole of another unjust feature
of the law is shown in the case of the
Mtate of George Vlsser, of Riley.- He
left a farm property and other prop
erty, Which was to be usea Dy me
widow for five years, and then divid
ed among the children. But the lit
tle pet Inheritance tax law won t
wait for that division five years
hence. Before the husband's body is
hurdlv covered in the cemetery, the
little "Joker" In the Stubbs law step
ped In and forced the widow 10 com.
mence paying the extra tax now.
She paid $37.65 at once, and the
law will force her to pay some more
when she actually takes possession ot
her share, five years hence, inia
instance la mentioned. Just to show
that no man can fix hia estate, even
hv nnntnnnlnc a division of It alter
death, but that the. clever Stubbs
law gets Its robbing fingers on tne
widow and children. Wagstaff says
this Is an outrage; and It Is.
Now, Just an example to show now
what happens when an estate fig
ures up to less than $5,000.
William Anderson died last year
at his home six miles from Randolph,
in Swede Creek township. The son,
C. J. Anderson, had to go to all the
expense of putting the estate through
tho rnurt.' When Che red tape had
finally been rolled up in a bundle and
sent to the state tax commission at
Tppeka, :t was found that the figure,
totaled J 4.974. This was under the
The state tax commission scratched
Its head and then wrote to Judge Mor
f Thev asked him to go over the
records again, with a view of figuring
out some way to raise this valuation
so as to get it up to $5,000, so they
could collect the extra tax! Rotten,
you Bay? Tea, bufBtubbs says this Is
a fine law.
' But Judge Morris said that the ad
ministrator In this case had assessed
everything plenty high, that the
farm was really valued above wnat u
ought to have been, and so the ex
tra tax was not collected. However,
vervbodv else through whose hands
the legal business passed, got their
"pickings" out of It. Had tnia parti
cular estate been worth $26 more, the
inheritance tax would have been col
loctort an the whole amount.
This unjust robber tax, the In
heritance tax with Its dragnet rixeo
so low aa to catch everybody will
cost Mr. Stubbs more votes than any
other one thing la the campaign.
Btubba says the law Is a good one.
He algned It. and he makes speech
es In favor' of It.
Wagstaff says It Is an outrage and
wants It repealed.

Another Torrid Day With the Tern

The temperature at t p. m. today
waa 106, the fourth day of JOO-de-gree
The corn la reported to have been
damaged considerably by the torrid
weather that has prevailed for three,
or four daye. It Is predjeted that If
the weather continues four or five
more days the crop will be reduced
at least one-third. The farmers as-
M that the corn is needing rain
very badly, and that Dickinson count,
will suffer a great toss If the moist
ure Is not received before the expira
tion of four or five days. '
The corn In many places Is begin
ning to tassel and It la reported that
the beat burns It out immediately
thereby ruining the producing anil
