"Cash Buys More Than Credit." NEW TRIAL DID KOCH NO GOOD Man Who Killed Joseph Vander Must Serve Out Remainder of llis First Sentekce. A new trial, granted by the supreme court after he served almost two years in the state penitentiary did Harry Koch no good as he did not get his time minimized in the least by the second endeavor. The jury which tri ed him the last time rendered their verdict last Friday morningthe ver dict being "Involuntary manslaugh ter." The maximum penalty under this decision is ten years in state's prison and Judge Cheadle practically gave Koch the limit when he sentenc ed him at 10 o'clock yesterday morn ing. The court sentenced the prison er to eight years in the penitentiary. This, with the two years which he has served, equals his original sentenc e of ten years. The case of the Inland Transporta tion company vs. C. H. Williams is being tried this week. The transpor tation company is suing for about $2,500 alleged to have been due when defendant ceased to act as plaintiff's agent in this city. The case has been on the docket since 1902 and will re quire several days in its trial. Hun toon and Worden represent the tran sportation company, or J. L. Mears, and DeKalb & Mettler are defending the case for Mr. Williams. It is likely that the present term of court will last this week and next. Not counting in the adjourned periods, it has been the longest jury session ever held in this county.

The entire community was shocked at hearing of the death of Mrs. Thom as Geer of Wolf Creek. Mrs. Geer had been in poor health for some time and ten days ago was removed to the Col umbus hospital in Great Falls, where she undewent an operation for cancer of the stomach. She did not rally from the operation and death occurred Tuesday. Her body was brought to Stanford Thursday where funeral services were conducted by Rev. Geo. Edwards. Friday the remains were laid to rest on the hillside near her old home on Dry Wolf creek, a brief fun eral service being said by Mr. Sutter. Mrs. Geer leaves a husband and five little children, besides a hose of friends to mourn her loss. She had lived in Barker and on Dry Wolf creek for the greater part of the past twen ty years and had won many friends in both places. Mr. and Mhs. P. McAnnally visited over Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. J. Y. Berges. A pleasant dance was given in Stan ford Wednesday. This will probably be the last one given here for some time, as the Bain building is to be re modeled for Mr. Johnson who expects to open a hotel there this summer. Lewis Segwin, Chas. Courtney, F. Morrison, Thos. Simpson and Judge Le Roy and others were called to Lewistown as witnesses in the trial of George Koch for killing Jos. Vander.

THE NATION IS DEMOCRATIC The trend of politics these days is a concession to democracy and demo cratic principles. The republican so called radicalism typified in Mr. Roos evelt is nothing if not democratic In its essential antagonism to govern ment of the few, by the few and for the few. Republican radicalism neans nothing new. It is precicely the oppo sition to special privilege which is basic with democracy. Republican radicalism concedes the truth of almost every vital principle of democracy; it even goes so far as to admit democracy's tariff demands. The tariff, if given into the hands of democrats to revise, would not un dergo any greater alterations than the republican pro-revisionists de mand. The democracy's time-estab lished position toward the trusts is copied precisely in the attitude of the republicans who have broken away from their old regime. The political result of the division of the republicans over tne so-called radical doctrine can be expressed but in one way—democratic domination. The split-off faction of republicanism loses its identity as such when it co incides with democracy. There can not be two republican parties. The republican party nominally and es sentially remains the party of Ham ilton, of special privilege, of pluto cratic, autocratic government, of "conservatism"—what leaves the re publican party of Aldrich, Cannon, Foraker, Knox, Shaw and Spooner, can have no other identification than as democratic, especially when it adopts a distinctly democratic atti tude and a diametric opposition to the old style perennial republicanism. There is nothing suasive in the rela tion of the radical to the stand pat, machine republicanism. There Will be no serious effort to reform the stand patters and induce them to change their character and stand—the rela tion is inimical. The republican party will continue to be just what it has always been and will continue to do business at the old stand. The radi cals will eventually find back seats in the meeting-house of democracy, and those are the seats which they must occupy. The present "drift" of politics, as re vealed in public utterances, is an il lustration of the truth that the pebple ultimately make politics. The politi cians may run things to suit them selves for a time—in the intervals be tween real political changes—but the people determine from time to time what shall be the general direction of the politicians. The "radical" utter ances of republican politicians, from president down, reflect popular will, Illustrate the pressure of popular in sistence. For a decade the nation has experi enced the rule of a highly developed republicanism, and the total effect is a fear to continue that rule. During all these years the contrast of dem ocratic principles has been before the people, and, although at times there has been a distrust of certain demo cratic doctrines, the experience with republican government has, on the whole, demonstrated democratic con tentions. Strange to say—and the re sult is the strangest proof of democ racy's wisdom and genuineness—the democratic party, instead of develop ing a greater radicalism of contention and attack, has, during these years, somewhat modified Its demands, at tracting a larger and' larger measure of confidence, while ultra republican ism, the rule of special Interests, was becoming more and more to be feared. A well-regulated, thoroughly Bane democratic government presents the most alluring contrast to machine and monopoly rule at this time, and na tional favor will surely effect the change. There is no compromise be tween the essentially democratic and essentially republican position. There is a lack of attractive sincerity in the shifting position of those republcans who, seeing how the wind blows, have adopted democratic attitudes. The efforts of the republicans to adjust their position to the demand of dem ocratic sentiment is the palpable effort of the leopard to change his spots. Government by the so-called "radi cal" republican party, were it a polit ical possibility for such a party to ex ist, would be distrusted. The people would be afraid to try the experiment. A party imitating the democratic party, but calling itself republican, cannot exist at the same time the democratic party exists. The people would prefer the real thing to the pre tenre. The republican party cannot get away from itself or its past. The fact that it is trying to do so, the fact that the ablest and most vigorous pol iticians of the party are trying to shake off the old character, damns the old character. They cannot keep the name without keeping the character. The fact that they are endeavoring to become democrats under another name, and to some extent under false pretenses, proves conclusively that the nation 1 b democratic in this year 1906.—St. Louis Republic.
