of thestandpat republican candi

The time has come when people
do not draw a sharp line between
democrats and republicans. They
rather look for a man who is cap
able, and who stands for the prin
ci pales as well as the legislation
which they favor. Judge Martin
is an old man, of long standiqg in
the ranks of the old republican
machine in Kansas, avowed a mem
ber of the so called "conservative"
wing of the republican party. His
period of agressive . activity has
passed. His principles are dbscur
ed by a cloud of verbosity' and
oratory which leaves with. : those
who attempt to find ' his stand oil
principles, merely an: impression
instead of a clear cut "accumula
tion of facts. We believe that the
people of this section of the , state
will vote for Neeley, a young pro
gressive aggressive man of no-
mean ability. He has the odds in
his favor, and. will, we believe,
win the coming election at the
hands of the voters, the intelligent
voters of the district who regard
less of politics, are looking for a
real man, strong in his convictions,
to fill the vacancy caused by . the
death of our honored representa
tive, E. H. Madison.
