' The Leading and Official Paper of Phillips County. The Mexican Monetary Commission h is recommended the coinage of gold an 32 to l. We are sorry for Bryan. He Is not the"comIngman"any more.only a"has been". Those who ought to be his loy al supporters are rapidly declaring In favor of some other man, a majority of them In this county seemingly In fa vor of William Eandolph Hearst. A law passed by the Kansas legisla ture makes It unlawful for school children to play "hookey" and pro vides for truant officers. Yet at the late special session sixty- eight mem bers of the legislature were truants and stayed at home with no good ex cuse, Star. It Is reported that Rev. J. Ed. Stev ens of Goodland Is a candidate for congress, with a strong following In the western part of the district. Rev. Stevens Is a republican neither of the "boss" or "buster" type and Is so amply qualf led that the district would fare well If he were its repre sentative. Superintendent Arnold has checked the account of State school fund, and finds that after all amounts due the various school districts have been drawn out a nice balance, the accum ulation of tines for years, remains' in the treasury. He has apportioned this sum and instead of receiving 40 cents per capita, as reported by state authorities each district will receive 52 cents per ca pita. This account had not been adjusted for years. Albaugh vs Kelley. A quarrel has arisen between state treasurer, T. T. Kelley, and bank com missioner Morton Albaugh regarding the action of state board of equaliza tion. Kelley Is said to have used his Influence In procuring a reduction of the valuation of his own county, Mia mi, making it proportionately lower than those of other counties for polit ical purposes. Kelley is aLso charged with increasing the levy and valua tions so as to raise &'00,000 more than is neccessary for state taxes for 11)03. So confident is Albaugh of the truth of his charges that ho has offered to wager bis position as bank commis sioner against Kelley'sas state treas urer, leaving the decision to a judge of the supremo court named by Kelley ns referee, whose decision shall be tinal and the resignation of loser shall be Immediately accepted. Now, Kel ley may be at faults.likewise Albaugh but public olllces of the importance of those occupied by these gentlemen who by virtue of their high positions are regarded as leaders of the domi nant political party and state policies, are far too' sacred to be made the stakes in an ordinary bet. Kelley has doubtless acted as to him seemed for the best Interests of the state and he Is in a position to Judge what ought to be for the best. Albaugh's attack bears the brand of malice and political perfidy. The quarrel Is one which will wldpn the breach between the factions and can not in any manner result in good to the republican party or to the state of Kansas. Wanted.
