, After High Honors.
There is a possibility'-that the University; "'of - Kansas will have three reprcsenatiyes on the Ameri can team which takes part in the Olympic games, to be held in - Stockholm from the middle of June to the middle of October, 1911, Robert Roberts , who has a record of 9 4-5 seconds in the 100- yard dash, Charles Woodbury, who holds the University ' "records of 25 3-5 seconds and 11. feet 6 inches in the low hurdles and the pole vault, and Will French, who has a record ot 6 feet t inches in the high jump, are the men who will probably go into the tryouts on Franklin Field, Philadelphia in April. . Roberts has several times uno fficially made the hundred yards in 9 3-5 seconds, the world's amateur record. There are few hurdlers better than Woodbury, in amateur circles. French has several times made 6 feet 2 inches in private, which is about as good as any of the, American amateurs are now doing. Five men will be chosen to compete in each event- This will give the Kansas men a good chance to represent their; school in the great meet' across the sea. Some of the athletic authorities are not m favor of the men's try . ins for the team because it would cripple the Kansas University in its spring meets. The New Railroad. i Dalhart, Tex., January 18,1911 At ameeting of the directors of the Annex League, it was stated ? on good authority that the Enid i Ochiltree & Western Railway had i - l i i. i i r i i i x .oeen ausoroea oy me hock lsiana System and that it wilt be rushed to a speedy completion. After an inspection by Rock Island officials last Sunday, the League . was as 1 surcd that the usual train service would be resumed,' and the con necting Pint between Wilco and - Enid would be completed in time to handle excursion trains to the i Stock Men's Convention at Dal hart. Heretofore it has b e e n operated under one General Super , intendent. Commencing Feb., it will be districted into, three grand divisions, namely Eastern Central and Western Grand Divi- 5 sions. - v A large order of; steel rails is being rushed from Joliet Illinois, to complete the line. The Bald- win Locomotive Works are work ' ing overtime in order -to make ' early delivery of 20 engines of the present type of high class power now being used on the Western 5 Grand Division. It has been of ' ficially stated that there will be no 'railroad crossings or grade be tween Dalhart and Ochiltree. As soon as the insurrection in Mexico is over and laborers can be obtain ed the road will be ballasted extended.' " ' t W.

If a farmer is obliged to hire i man or two as he often does dur .t '. i . . . tug uib ousy season or the year, every hour he has to spend on the way to and from market means money to him. Almost all of the farmers would save more in a year by' gobfl roads than they would . spend in hxing them up. There is Too single improvement which would add as much to to the value of the land in Seward county as good roads. The prospective land buyer first notices the road he drives over; and immediately the question of marketing the product of the land is raised. Good roads will be a benefit to every man, woman and child in Seward county. Make it a point to get your town- shiD officers to nrcrnnin anrl on! It the township up into road districts. That is the first move. Talk it over and push the good work along; In other words be a booster, for it will mean good iron dollars to you " , Mrs. Clarence Lamb of Topeka came in Sunday to visit Mr. and Mrs. M. Lamb for a few weeks. ..Topeka, Kan. What promises to b too moat bitterly contested and nolltl cally vindictive legislative session ol recent years is now in session. Ap parently every senator and membej came In with a knife In his boot. In the senate, Lieutenant-Governor Hod kins was dehorned, the power to make committee appointments having been taken away from him. The house, by a vote of 65 to 68 re fused to remove the power of appoint lng committees from the spaeker. It required, however," that the speaker give proportionate consideration to Democrats in naming the committees. The vote was 65 to 68. , In the senate, an effort was made by Senator Gantz to restore the powei or naming the committee to the lieu tenant-governor. The motion was lost by a vote of 21 to 18 and a committee was chosen by the committee on rules to make the committee assignments In the senate. ' j When the senate committees were made up the Insurgent senators were relegated to unimportant chairman ships. ' ' " . - Kansas Labor Wants. Laws. W. L. A, Johnson, state commission er of labor, outlined the legislation which the labor legislative commute will present before the legislature. The liability law, Introduced at the last session of the legislature, pased the house and defeated by the senate, again will be presented. No changes have been made in It. .; ',. A compensation law will be urged It has not been worked out In detail but will provide for a fixed amount for death and injury in accordance with a general average of a previous number of years of wages. Contributory negli gence and gross negligence of employ er are to be Waived. A sliding scale of compensation is to be arranged. ' A commission Is to be asked to be paid by the state on a per diem wage Five members are to compose it. The commission is to be limited" to the con sideration of certain hazardous era ployments and the investigation of ac cidents resulting in such employment holding hearings on all such cases. Is to compile a report and make re commendations to the next- legtsla ture. An, amendment to the accident law is to be asked. . It Is to be modeled afternhe provision "in the Minnesota law that all accidents be reported to the state commissioner of labor that - tabulations can be made as causes, conditions, effects and costs After Scalp of the Assessor. It is not unlikely that the office of county assessor will be abolished dur lng this session of the legislature; that is in counties having a population of around 25,000 or less. Two bills along that line have been Introduced In the house by Peomcrats. The two bills in troduced put the county assessor out of business completely and turn his work over to the county clerk. It Is ex pected that there will be a bill from the Republican side of the house pro viding for the abolition of the county assessor only in counties having a cer tain 'population probably ', 25,000 or 30,000. - To Prevent Hog Cholera. Governor Stubbs has sent his first special message to the legislature. He asks that provision be made at once to enlarge the plant at the state agri cultural college for the manufacture ot serum to use as a preventive for hog cholera. ' ; . First Bills In 8enate. There were six bills Introduced Ik the senate the first day, and hone In the house. ' Senator W. M. Glenn of Greeley had the honor of Introducing the first bill introduced In the legisla ture of 1911. Incidentally, It will stir up considerable argument before gets through the senate, at least. , The bill provides for a reapportionment of the senatorial districts of the state in accordance with1' the recent federal census. The provisions of the bill are rather complicated and technical, but, on the whole, It provides for fewer senators from the eastern section of the state, where the population has de creased or stood still, and more una tors from the central or wewstern part of the state, where the greatest part of the state's growth has occurred dur ing the last tea years. ' f A Chance for Murdock. . - Senator Stewart of Sedgwick county has introduced1 bill to amend section 3300 of the general statutes of 1909 in way 10 permit a congressman or a candidate for congress in the primary election also to be a candidate at the same time for United States senator "Affinity" Bill Introduced. Another bill that will probably be relegated to the freak class has been introduced ia the house by F. W. Wat son of Allen county. It Is aa "affinity" bill and provides that any man who deserts his wife and minor children, the children being less than 1( years old, may be sent to jail for six months The bill provides that after conviction. if the man who had abandoned his wife and children will give bond which will insure his caririg for his family, the jail Sentence oay not be enforced. ' ton Advlioi, Harmony - Robert Stone made a short addreit in the house, advising the two parties to work la harmony la the house this winter for the beat Interests of the state. He advised against all unneces sary Jangling between "the two parties ua ootween factions in the two pe ties. He was roundly applauded for nis remarks. A short time later a man on the Re publican side of the house made, a mo tion to take a recess for an hour. Ths members had gone to the house at noon with nothing to eat and they wars hungry. James Orr, on the Deocratis side, Immediately demanded a roll call on the motion to adjourn. He was de feated and the bouse took a recess. A few minutes later Speaker-Buck- man asked for unanimous permission to have the governor's message read. Mr. Orr objected and It was neoessary to take a vote on It. Mr. Orr, in this instance, voted alone. It does not ap pear likely that the two parties will dwell in peace and harmony this win. ter- . To License Real Estate Men. A law compelling all rea lestate deal ers in the state to pay a license fee ol fifty dollars, for the privilege of doing business, will be brought before'. the legislature for consideration during the present session. Such a law waa-pro- posed for the consideration of the Kansas Real Estate Dealers' assoola I Hon at the banquet given by the asso ciation in session here. The money to be colluded from these licenses Is to be turned over to a 'bureau of Immi gration which will be included in the proposed law. The duties of the. pro posed bureau will be to advertise the state In an effort to bring In new prop erty owners. A law providing for ex eruption from taxes for mortgages and another to allow the execution ol deeds of trust on the same basis as mortgages are no wexecuted will aUo be proposed. After the Corporations. Attorney General Fred S. Jackson the retiring attorney general, recom mended to the legislature that a la be enacted refusing admission to Kan as to all foreign corporations. JThis Is probably the most radical recom mendatlon made to the legislature but even it is not so radical as It sounds. The foreign corporations may become domestic corporations, pay the charter tees of domestic corporations, and con tlnue to do business in the state. M Jackson takes this position because of the decision of the supreme court of the United States in the Pullman case and the Western Union case in which It was held that the state could not col lect the charter fees from these cor porations under the existing charter act. '4 Repeal Inheritance Tax Law. inree bills were introduced in the house providing for the repeal of the inheritance tax law. This law was passed by the last legislature and the has been much criticism, of It, but It has been defended loyally by the ad ministration and members who helped pass it. The Republican party plat form declared for amendments to it but not for its repeal. All of the bills Introduced provid ing for the repeal ofthe law were in troduced by Democrats. It is not be lieved likely that the law will be re pealed, but It is expected that It will be amended so as to Increase the wid ow s exception. Many Republican members have declared themselves for this. Beck Helped New Hand to 8tart, Will Beck of Holton, chief clerk of the hotire two years ago, was In the nouse starting his successor. Earl Akers, off right. Mr. Akers Is new to the Job In the house, although he had considerable experience In the senate. Beck saw to It that he did not over look anything. Mr. Beck was not candidate for anything this year, pre ferring to stay at home and operate the Holton Record. Would Censor the Moving Pictures Henry Block, member from Hamil ton county, Inrtoduced a bill In the house prohibiting the showing of mov ng or stationary pictures of certain character. He would prohibit the ex hibition of pictured "Indecency, orirae or misdemeanors or unfaithfulness of husband or wife." He would fine of fenders not less than 1100 nor more than tr.no for each offense, or place them In jail for not less than 30 days nor more than six months, or Inflict both fine aad Imprisonment. Tbia Is the first moving picture bill ever In troduced In a Kansas legislature. To Lengthen Office Tenure. There will be a concerted effort on the part of the Republican party lead ers led by Representative J. W. DavU of Kiowa to have the state constltn non amended to make the term of state officials four instead of two years. Mr. Davis says that It would save the state the expense of a bien nial election and also obviate the a cesslty for frequent political cam paigns. State officers would be In eligible for re election Make Payments-More Prompt Senator Francis Price of Clark cons ty has introduced a bill In the son it that is Intended to force fire, rornaJo and lightning Insurance companies do ing business In Kansas to pay low claims ' more prompt. The bill m vides that where suit Is broiigkt against one of these Insurance com panles to collect on a policy, and fh plaintiff wins the court decision. tee Judge must also assess against the dn fendant company a reasoLable amount to pay the plaintiff attorney fees. o if ft An Every Day Necessity, Why Not Use The Best And Secure Every Day Satisfaction t I -Jj.WlB ' m 1 WICHITA.
