Ewing Herbert predicts that Cy Leland will will be ruuning the iloeu band wagon before the close of the campaign, Perhaps so, but if there are no other leaders In Kansas the republican party Is In a hard way. Harris has been endorsed by the democrats In several counlics fur gov ernor. Judgo I'arker of New York seems to be gaining In favor as a pres 1 lentlal candidate. It will lie inter ettlng to see whether Bryansinlliience and Hearst's "barrcll" arc sulllcient to control the national convjntion. . By concentrating their efforts against Tom Kellcy, the republican candidate for state treasurer, the ' democrats expect, to defeat not only Kelley but li r candidates and per haps the wlmii! ticket. And some who have alwms enjoyed the reputa tlon Tif being kimm! republicans are lending all tin: aid they possibly can ! Until hearing the resolutions adopt rd Ht the democratic convention last Saturday we did not know that the "fundamental principles of democracy i iiiincliiled I y Thomas Jefferson, and put, In practice by Andrew Jackson," were .iilvocaied and upheld by the patrli tl , liberty loving and Immortal Matesmun, Abraham Lincoln." This is one of the best Jokes of the season. Tho expulsion of Burton from the senate rests with that body Itself. This will probably not occur until the trial Is tlnally settled. Should thoap peal be granted matters will be delayed until September and, perhaps longer, Governor Bailey cannot, appoint a sue cessor until a vacancy occurs, and It is possible, that this may not luippen during Bailey's term of ollli-e. poll tlchms are watching t lie course of events with keenest Interest. ' A report from the United States department of agriculture says that Kansas nsps more oats than situ pro duces. This Is un Interesting state mcnt. Oats are recoynlz tl as a vain able farm pioduet and are a reiisonalilj sure cropper.

You certainly do not mean to insinuate that Burton got in' bis graft, do you? A decision in the Dingley tariff law brings "frogs' legs" In-the class of dc -sed poultry.

Nnw that Senator Burton is con victed of bribery, we should like to see him make a clean breast of the whole matter and give out a state ment showing how much. money he has received, by whom it was paid and for weat purposes, since his e'ection. The public would like to know how he paid $70,000 of his Indebtedness In three years on a $,000 salary, and possibly some people of Phllllpsburg are curious to know whether any of his b irJle m my w nli bicraditeJ to this part of the state The conviction of Senator J.

His private record has never been held up as a mtdel for young Americans. The charges upon which he is convict ed do not constitute a crime but the penalty may range from el and one days imprlsoi muut on each count to ilO.OOOand two j ears Imprisonment on each, and mure than all mis he is for ever rlh-qualitk'd from holding any of fice of honor, piotit or trust under the United Stales government,. Little sympathy Is felt fur t ho senator him self but, for the sake ot the wife who has been so fu.li lit ul and whu probably mine than any ability or quali ileal Ion of l In; man has been responsible for his success, some mercy ought to be shown. Burton's election was a dis giaco to Kansas. If Mr. Stubbs Is ah able a mart In ooiiticsas lie is In business, and he seems to be, he will appoint Cy Le land a member or the executive com mit,! ce. Leland Is the nest, politician in Kansas and the leader of the de feated faction. His appointment would bring him into clie relations with the new movement, would make him especially Interested In the elec tlon of the ticket, and would bring to the active work of the committee the wisdom and good political and busi ness ludgment of orm of t he shrewdest and cleanest poiit loUns and business men In the slate. Utspatch. If Mr. Stubbs Is as able In politics as he Is In business ho will not appoint Cy Lelind as a member of anything. Leland is a shrewd politician. No one doubts that. , Bt Iih politics Is what people have been lighting and turned down, and Stuhiig has been the leader In the movement against Lelandlsm, In other words txisslsm. Now that, the tight lias been won the people do not cire to see the deposed leader in stalled Into a place of power under t he new r 'giiiie. Thcrelsnow a splendid opportunity to wipe out factionalism and It ought to be dune, but it cannot be accomplished by the recognition of of the old leaders, especially those against whom the big tight has been waged. There are new men. success fill In business, in politics, brainy and honest. Let the choice bo from, anch is as these, and let us not seek to perpetuate our troubles.
