Globe-Republican Ptg. Co, Pub DODGE CITY, : I X KAN. Now Is the time to have your straw bat cleaned. For the sake of peace give the worn en the ballot! Why Jeer at the spring poet when we all feel the same way? Soon will be warm enough for the open-window cornet player. The milliners have solved the prob lem: What shall we do with our ex-wastebaskets? It must be much pleasanter to pilot a war balloon before hostilities begin than afterward. Now the price of liberty Is quoted at the market rate of a sufficient sup ply of Dreadnoughts. London complains of a shortage of doctors. The diploma mills must be more exacting over there. A wise man will enjoy every pleas ant day to the fullest extent, for he never knows what is coming. The taxicab is after all an automo bile, and It does not hesitate to run over the innocent pedestrian. An English peeress has written a cookery book. Perhaps the reac tion from the suffragette craze coming. The treasury department, it la said, Is about to have new designs prepared for the nickel five-cent pieces and 'he more or less coppery one-cent coins. If possible the designs should be drawn so as not to resemble in any degree the designs on the new fl"e dollar gold pieces. Each succeeding generation Is bet ter than the last. That is why we - do not burn witches nor own slaves. . And we do many things which our children's children will think criminal and silly.

Witnesses for Defense Think That Hi Cannot Get Impartial Trial-Where Deed Was Committed. Kansas City, Mo. Following a mo tlon for a change of venue in the case of James Sharp, known as Adam God, charged with the murder of a police' man here last fall, nine witnesses were placed on the stand yesterday by the defense to show that a fair trial could not be given Sharp In this county. "The general Impression Is that Sharp is a religious fanatic, that he Is a crank and that he must be crazy Is It not?" Prosecuting Attorney Conkling asked several times on cross examination. The reply was usually affirmative. "Then If the defense Is insanity he has the people about half persuaded already, and the prejudice is In his favor," was the prosecutor's statement. Sharp at one time arose, Bible In hand, and Interrupted the proceedings of the court. "These witnesses tell about what 1 did, and nothing is said about what was dono by my enemies and the ene mles of the Lord," he declared. Judge Latshaw then explained to Sharp that he was not yet on trial and that no jury had yet been convened, and the defendant sat down. The proseculion will introduce testimony today to show why a change of venue should not be granted. If the Chicago police have cap tured the leader of the Black Hand in that city, they have done an excellent work. It Is said that this man has given information concerning his fel- . lows. He was arrested in the act of taking money from an Italian physl- , clan, who had been threatened by the . gang. A looker-on in Venice Illinois, not Italy might well be surprised that the recent' spanking of three boys in that peaceful village should be so elaborately treated by the metropoli- tan press. Time was when this was an almost daily observance in every home in the land that boasted young " barbarians at play. "The old order ' changeth." A railroad posts In its suburban cars warnings against "disembarking from the cars in the terminal yards." This, as the Frenchman observed, Is most well; but might It not be worth .while to join with It an admonition to the careless suburbanite to cease disembarking on the port side of the trains at stations where the platform lies to starboard? The coast artillery companies at Fort Washington, Md., claim the world's record In mortar firing, having bit a target moving at the rate of five miles an hour six times In ten shots at a distance of from 4,000 to 6,000 yards, and the ten shots were fired in iess than 6'a minutes. With marks manship reduced to an exact science the leviathan battleships will have to be wary. An American company is to be formed to capitalize an expedition to search In the ocean for the hidden treasures of Capt. Kidd. As a hlder that piratical gentleman is still hold ing the record. He would be worth his weight In his own gold at this day, when other hidden treasures are be ing dragged to light by probes, Inves tigations and other forms of "trust-busting." How culpably ignorant of the early history of our country the children are being kept Is freshly Illustrated by some examination papers filed at a re cent college examination, In which It was stated that Gen. Grant and Ad miral Farragut commanded In the British army and navy during the rev olution. Apparently good work will be found for every post in detailing comrades to Inspect the duties of the children in the schools. The New York taxicabshavlng be come established the Inevitable result follows that their proprietors are feel ing around for the highest charges that the traffic will bear. This Is so usual as -to create little surprise; but the public would like for once to see how it seems to encounter a public service novelty that is conducted on the effete notion of discovering the lowest prices that will yield bigger 'profits by multiplying the traffic. ' Taxlcabs have Increased their rates In New York, but' the old reliable crosstown horse cars still jolt along for a nickel. - Owen Wants Duty on Crude Oil. Washington. Senator Owen yester day announced his intention of voting for a tariff on crude petroleum Senator Owen said: "Oklahoma has an immense capital Invested In thousands of oil wells, many of which are small producers that may be seriously injured, they advise me, ff this leverage is given to the Standard. The independent pro ducers represent to me that the Stand ard with its fleet of oil boats will de liver cheap crude oil from Mexico within our borders and reduce the price of crude oil below the point at which the Independent producer can live, doing a ruinous harm to the pro duction of the oil bearing areas of Oklahoma and to the consumers of re fined oil In Oklahoma, because with an unlimited supply of extremely cheap crude oil In the hands of the Standard that great organization could break down the independent re finers, who have been growing In re cent years, and having destroyed this competition would have the consumer still more at the mercy of the Stand ard. "The consumers of refined oil In Oklahoma, where the oil costs less than one cent a gallon, can be effi ciently protected by our state author ities and by the development of com petition within the state. - "I believe from the Information now before me that It Is the wish of the people of Oklahoma that I favor a tax on crude oil from Mexico. I desire to represent the will of the people of my state and to protect every Interest of Oklahoma. And unless I am Imme diately advised to the contrary In some authoritative way I shall vote for a substantial tax on the importa tion of crude petroleum. I have re quested the governor to advise me of the sentiment of the people of our state, as he Is on the ground and should know what -it really la." f Italy has got the Dreadnoughtltla, too! A bill bag. been Introduced In the. chamber of deputies calling for two 20,000-ton battleships. When they pet two they will feel lonesome with out four and with four It will be abso lutely necessary to have six.
