MeHmtorSo mm Vol XXV. PHILLIPSBURG, KANSAS, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1903. No. 9. f T IPQ1 MMRA JJ JiJiJL V I I Tbe factional fight has extended to every corner of the state. It is en gendered by rival politicians, each jealous of tbe other and desirous of accomplishing tbe defeat of their op ponents. In this tight of politicians, the people come in for consideration only as electors whose votes are to be controlled fqr the interest of one or the other of the factions. Tbe fac tions themselves consider their own success of prime Importance, the in terests of the state td tbem are of sec ondary concern. ' To all of this disturbance the people re taking exceptions. A popular uprising demands the nomination and election of 12. W. Hocbof Marion for governor and the retirement of W. J Bailey tbe presant incumbent. Tbe politicians some of them demand the re-election of Bailey for sake of precedent, claiming that he is entitled to a second term because custom has so ordained it, Tbe people believe that only Hoch can lead the republi can party to success. Tbe Bailey ma chine politicians claim that unless Bailey is renominated a fight will be precipitated that will disrupt tbe par ty and cause it's defeat. Everywhere lifelong republicans may oe found who declare tbey will not in any event vote for Bailey should he be nominated Has anyone ever beard such an asser tion concerning Hoch V The issue is clear. If tbe party is to be successful a man must be nomi nated wbo can get the republican votes, and no candidate can, wbo rep resents one or other of tbe factions and wbo has not the very best reputa tion as to character and ability, expect to get the united supportof tbe party. Tbe candidates are W.J. Bailey and E. W. Hoch. One represents tbe fac tion and tbe politicians. One is the champion of tbe people and good gov ernment. Which shall it be? . Turner Is An Independent. E. W. Turner who seems to be( tbe democratic ohamplon for congress In v this district is credited by aTopeka paper with the following: i. ' "I have no desire to run for congress said Mr. Turner in discussing the mat ter. "I am one of a rapidly growing class of independent voters who pro poses of to vote for the best man re gardlessof what ticket he Is on. I would just as lief vote the Republican ticket as the Democratic, or the D m ocratlc ticket as the Republican "Tbe recent boodle' disclosures all over tbe country have had a tendency to make tbe average voter stop and think what is the cause of them, and he cannot help seeing that the real cause Is rank partisanship, the fact ' that men vote for party no matter what sort of a candidate his party has up. These disclosures of corruption are going to result in largely increas ing the number of independent voters Jn the country. The bood ling is not confined to any one party, but it is 'in all of tbem, so one party will not be burl or benefited more than an other. I think a large number of Indepcn ent voters, will be a K'iod thing. The faqt that thprp Is a large class which will vote only for the best men will cause tbe party leaders to be careful about what kind of men are nomi nated." A New Swindling dame. A new swindling game was recently worked on Max Stevens, a farmer north of here, who entertained a stranger who claimed to be a minister. He played the part. In the morn ing a young couple appeared and asked the way to the minister s, saying they Wanted to get marred. The farmer thought of the minister who was stay Jng with bin and suggested that the couple be married there. The sup posed minister performed the cere mony. Tliorarmer and his wife signed the certlf wato as witnesses. Recently Stevens was notified that a note for 1,000 was due. They had sinned a note instead of a marrhizo license. The swindlers had discounted the note Washington (Ind.) Democrat. TaokThrlr Pictures. Friday arternoon the prisoners ac cused of the A?ra Bank robbery were photographed by G. II. Tucker under tbe dl red ion ef sheriff Ctter. These photographs are Intended as a safe guard only and to serve as a means of identification In case of escape. Tbe first to be taken, known as Conrny objected quite strenuors'y and had to le handculTrd and held. The other upplrg thit 'b-y must submit iffend little resistance. Wblcb Shall U Be.

Rushed to the Defence of His Master Last weel's Dispatch contained an article which was "communicated" If one may Judge by the heading and the little note at tbe end marked Ed." However the article was unsigned Indicating that whoever the author may have been, he was unwilling to stand sponser for It. In general it was an assault upon the boss busters because they do not as he,-or it or whoever or whatever he or it may be,- follow the lead of the 'Jew Boss" as ho desires they should. In particular, it was aimed at the ed of this paper because he ''advocates pure politics, and a clean ballot, and at the convent Ions, candidates should be nominated on their merit and no slates Axed." Since that is his charge the Herald is glad he has seen lit to give it pub lication, and there is no cause for wonder that his name is withheld Since the "Jew Boss" has alwajs op posed the Herald editor, and the com municant attempts a "word in his behalf, as a friend," it is not surpris ing that both desire him to remain unknown. Now the nerald is perfectly willing to join issues with anyone on such charges as the unknown "gentleman from Arcade'' seemed to prefer but an unsigned communication is like a shot, from ambush and Is a thrust that one who Is conscientious and honor able would not attempt. Defend your master, Mr. If you desire, but have, the courage to face the music. Be sure too, tbat the odium you seek to attach to another Is not like the stench with which the skunk battles Itsenemies, the product of its own vile nature, but so that you whomay bo "without sin" shall ca.si 'Mbetlrst stone." But t in If you choose but let. the people krtow what kind or an assailant you are. We gather from the Emporia Gazette that Senator J. R. Burton has r -fused to take his paper out of the office.

Don't fail to get their prices before buying. 60 different gimcs all new one in each package of Lion Coffee at your Grocer's. Mrs. Z. T. JJazen, wife of Judge Hazcn or Topcka met a traglo death by gasoline and fire last Friday. " It is now announced that Stanley condemns tbe extravagance of the last legislature. Who does not, except se who profited by it? A Chicago professor has denounced bathing as an unhealthy habit. ,'To bath" he declares "Is to be dirty." This discovery wllf be hailed with de light probably by the tramps. Young men in this little Burg are willing to be as economical as possible If not convenient to do withont fire on Sunday nights tbey are at least ready to do without a light and thus save the old man his coaloil bills. It is to be hoped that the war with Germany Is only a blull. Germany would prove something more of an an tagonist than Spain and In the event of a war with her our country nibiht lose a man or two. Two of the prisoners were taken to Mankato and one to Smith Center Friday for safe keeping. One was taken Monday to Norton and one re mains here, By this means escape in a body will be prevented and their appearance at trial rendered more certain. Every precaution to prevent escape is being taken. Machine men say that Burton used) Hoch at the state convention, and that It begins to look as if he may do it again. What silly gossip I No pol itician ever used Iloch unless there were legitimate reasons for Hooh's services The spirit of such talk Is to lessen the esteem in which Hoch is held by the public, and in this way to frost his candidacy. There was quite a commotion in Marvin last week w.ien tbe principal of the schools, John W. lUy was attacked by one of the young men, A. Woiley aud a fight ensued. Several reports have been received but the Herald dues not deem the matter of sufficient Import to publish any of them. Sut Hue it to say that all parties consider it a deplorable circumstance both for teacher aud schools, aud the sooner the matter Is dropped and forgotten tbe better it will be for all concerned It is amusing to watch the matter which tills the editorial column of the democratic papers. All of tbem are greatly concerned about the action of the G. O, P. aud hope that the split wbicb factionalism threatens will oc cur. In iliat eveut they see a pass! btllty of success in Kansas. Why they stiouid appeal to an intelligent public 10 vote against the party which has contributed must to the guod name and welfare of Kansas simply because tbat party is or may bo divided is more tban we can understand. Uules ihuy come to the front with principles hat appeal to ones better Judgment ihey have no right to expect the votes if liberal minded electors. Principles and not predjudice should govern.

Mr. Bowersock have opposition for renomlnation? He has certainly devoted his time to the work of being a Congressman. IIo has served the people well. lie has not satislled everybody with appointments, but 1 he only way any official can do this is to be able to give every man a job. Lawrence World. Why bless your poor innocent soul, Brother Brady, Mr. Bowersock com mitted the unpardonable sin of being for somebody else at Wichita. That is the only test of republicanism in this state, at headquarters. Nothing else counts. The Ariuns. Tbe Arlon Male Quartette gavo their entertainment to a crowded house Saturday evening.

We often wonder how Doss Cy Lc land can have such a hold on spine people. Here in Smith county we don't believe he has over a dozen fol lowers, but they are for hlin all over. Cy Is their Ideal of what a politician should be and because this paper does not approve of Cy and bis mothods, they have never ceased to make war upon us. They are working for the Democratic papers, preferring a Dem ocrat to a Republlcon who don't sup port the great Kansas boss. IfCy should be turned down bis worshipers In thU county would havoa fit. Smith County Pioneer. A very similar condition exists here. Bishop Totter's latest story has a Western sett Ing. A 1 1 he end of a day's Journey a traveler stopped for the night at a r-mall rancher's shack in Montana. As he sat on the doorstep with bis host a troop of chifd ren began playing about them, and he asked: 'These all yours? "Yep" "How many?" "Let's see," and the rancher hesitatingly began counting them up on his fingers. Pretty soon a drove of hogs came Into view. "Yours?" asked the traveler. "Yep. ""How many?" "Jest 5(i0 to a pig," was the instant response. Ex. $390 For Letters to Encourage Emigration.
