Contract for all Legal and Job .Printing Awarded to the Post for 1904. -0- Tueiday or en one of the warmest ' printing contests In the history of the county was settled by awarding the contract for the publication of all com missloners proceedings, notices and other publications required by the county, also all -Job printing to the rhillips County Post for the year 1904 The contract calls for the same com pensation as was paid last yeas. The official work all along bad been concceded to the Post but a feeling tbat the work might be fairly divided among the papers bad arisen and a scramble for the division" resulted. The outcome of the fight was as aboie stated, the two democratic members voting for the Post and the republican member remaining silent permlttirg them to settle the controversy. For sometime the Dispatch bad been attempting to work tip senti ment In its favor employing all tbe wiles of a professional politician' Com mlsslontr Veeh, however decided that the sensible course was not to further intensify tbe factional quarrel by choosing between tbe republican, pa pers. The county printing as an average pays about 11000. a year. To some this may seem a large amount but when it Is considered that the cqunty printer Is tbe only official who is required to furnish capital for maintaining an ex pensive plant In order to do tbe work tbe compensation seems very low. Tb4 Post is a well equipped office and be commissioners in awarding the xjntract only claimed the "spoils of victory." for tbe purpose of installing their offi cers for the ensuing terms. Following the ceremonies, several were called up on for short speeches, and Mrs. Poe sang for the audience, responding to an encore. Tbe program was cut short for all realized that a banquet was in readiness, and was enjoyed by nearly two hundred members of the lodges and ylsltors from neighboring owns. Tbe District. Tbe all absorbing trial at tbe dis trict court at tbe present time is cf tbe prisoners accused of bank robbery. The live have demanded separate trials and John W. Baker is tbe first to be brought before tbj court There Is a hoRt of witnesses on both tides and tbe trials will consume a , great deal of time. Tbe state Is ' represented by County Attorney Sul llvan, Attorneys Berger of Kansas Kiceof Smith Center and Btln' son of this city. Attorneys Castor of Biverton, Nebraska and Lewis of tbls city are appearing for tbe defense. Aside from these, two divorces have beeo granted and a number of cases called up for hearing and continued Tbe case aalDst John Lowe was dismissed on motion of the county attorney. Joint Installation. Fridav venlnir fh WfuJrae.i hii I Royal Kright rs held a Joint sesslvo A Smooth draft. A fruit tree fakir is said to be work ing this part of Kansas on a graft that was worked In Brown county live or six years ago. The plan was to ap proach a farmer with a proposition to Sell him fruit trees, taking one-half tbe purchase price In money, and the balance In fruit after tbe trees come jnto, bearing. Tbls looks like a good offer, and t Is If tbe trees are sold at their real worth, but there's where tbe rub comes In. In tbe Brown county case referred to, trees were sold at 1150 each (only half, 75 cents in money) that, after coming Into bearing proved to be trees that any nurseryman would have been glad to sell at 15 cents each. Many of the trees were utterly worthless never bore any fruit. All were represeuted to be very fine and rare varieties. Tbe tree seller nevercame after tbe fruit for the remainder of the purchase price of the trees. Half price was plenty for blm.Sabetha Republican Herald. up behind him and mile lk-rculy for the hospital. On the way another cannon hall carnn ulonc, tvhlch took off the head of the unfortunate com rade behind, hut the .cavalryman In his excitement did not not Ice the fact. And reaching the hospital, the rescuer called to the surgeon to come In a hur ry or his man would die. The surgeon hurried up and then turned away, and said: "Why man, his head Is oif." With great disgust, tin; inxiper turned and exclaimed; "You durned liar you said it was yjur leg." Ex. He Shouldn't Have Lied. A cavalryman during a battle beard a comrade call for help. The wound ed tf.an said that a cannon ball had taken off a leg and that if he did nt at once get to a hospital In the r iir be would surely hked to d-ath. Th vtvalryoian swuug tbe wounded mau The Revolution Within TU; Kpubl: can Party, There a'o two important facts for the Republicans of Kansas togetlirm ly fixed In their minds, wh"th x .they belong to tne dominant machine or are against It. First, that Kansas Is reliably and overwhelmingly Repub lican, and second, that the Republican party of tbl. state is unanimously for the rcnomlnatlon of President Roosevelt as it was for McKInley. No shallow whinlnir about t in; necessity of harmony to prevent the opposition from defeating the Republican party can fool .the thinking Republicans who are today demanding t he over throw of the best organized and most demoralizing political machine Kan sas has ever known. The demand that comes up from the Republicans of every county In Kansas for the evert brow of the Railey-Leland Albauh mac!iinlsnot !a splflsh one. It din-.s not grow out of ' a wish to establUh a Rurton-Mulvane-Grlmes machine, nor U It fn the In terest of any man r s"t i.t men In office or wanting oiVec. It Is a long loud and rllsi !':'. protp a ainst a rln of poll tic I ins wii. hav Ictated ttje Fifleral appointments', with tbe j aid of the state administration aud a portion of the congressional delega tion. With the state patronage to-dispense In Ui( Interest of the machine, the Legislature was organized and the outrages of a blundering and boodling legislative session nevor, paralleled' In the history of the, state for its con tempt of political decency, supported and protected In every excess by the state administration, are now an old story, but none the less a shameful one in the. Republican party. The statu cenlral committee has long since given over all power to tbe halt dozen leaders' of the machine. The dragging of a great state convention for the second time to a city that has neither hotel nor hall accommodations for such a gathering simply empha sis H the contempt the machine has for the people's wish or their Inter ests. The state convention was taken to Wichita to punish Topeka because it has no sympathy for a gang of politi cal looters who destroyed for revenge and for money one of the finest Insti tutions ever built in this city or tbe state. Is it not time, when political brig ands wearing the garb of Republicans can force a United States Judge to assist In their dishonorable political schemes, for the voters to rise up and drive them out of power S These fel lows expect to sustain the machine lo p iwer by frightening the Republican voters Into sustaining and renominat ing Gov. 1UI ley and placing Mort Al baugh at the bead of the state oom- miltee aj.iin. Thev will claim that. ' the failure to do this will send the Re publican party In Kansis to destruc tion. Bailey's defeat means tbe down fall of the machine. ; rJJ H'-cu at the head of the Repub lican ticket mcani for Kansas what Folk of Missouri will '. do for tbat Democratic machine rld.den state. ID will mcandn KanBaa a great and un preccdented Republican majority, be cause Itwill Inspire continence in the minds of thohsandsof voM rs who have fallen out of the Republican column In recent years. It will nu an cleaner political methods, lower tai :es and the placing of the Republican pi trty upon a higher plane7. The people who aro tho rotcrj of the Republican party and who are not recipients of political favors, of tho machine are tired of Lelandlsm Bal leylsm and all the balance of the office bartering gang well known to every. Intelligent voter.- Now is the time to organize in every county In the state to turn down the bosses of the party and give to Kansas a victor for polit ical honor and decency that will last for a generation. J. K. h UDSOX. . High School Note Miss Maude Borrell was exposed to tbe mumps Bometlme ago, so she Is a vacatiotl now. Th3 irimmar room has about half a dozen new scholars. Tbe eleventh grade has taken op Zoology In place of Bookkeeping since Christmas and tbe ninth grade now takes Botany where they previously took Physical Geography. The members of tbe tenth grade Literature class are reading Milton's "Paradise Lost." Each one seems deeply interested In tbe poem. - As one of the shrewdest of polltl' clans, Miro Ilanna doubtlest feels sure of his nomination, or his name would never have beeo nsed as a can' did ate- His success will be a tlow from which tte republican party may notspcqdily mo;r.
