well as from Abilene, bo eiceiieni
! the ticket that the prospects are
for a clean sweep for every candidate
from top to bottom of the list
The people of the county hive
learned to expect on the Republican
ticket first class candidates and to
expect from the officers when elected
first class service. In the oaso of
every candidate before IhJ people
this fall who has already served the
public the record speaks tor Itseir.
The service given by Representative
Case, County Clerk King, Sheriff

their fitness for their places and
their renomlnatlon came as a recog
nition of their excellent work and
faithful performance of duty.' Their

Senator Frank Travis ot lola aendf

interesting letter along sensible lines
In state politics. He quote, this
editorial from the Reflector:
Whea the Kansas legislature meets
we hope some member of the house
will make a motion to have a com
mittee selected by the h'oaae name
all tha committees and that the
speaker shall not be a member of
that committee. This' is what Mur
doch, Madison, Cummins aad all -the
reformers hare been fighting for' tn
congress and It would be ridiculous
for Kansas' legislature to allow Itself
to be bossed by a speaker who caa
automatically same all the coat-
mitteea. olcklna them out In advance.
The aame should be done la the
