And a Big Crowd Came
to Hear Him
It lias been a lone: time since
there was as good a speech in Lib
eral as that given by George Nee
ley at the Opera House Monday
afternoon. In fact it has been
since October 11, when Champ
Clark was here. In spite of the
fact that the meeting was held
during the afternoon of a busy
day just a week before Christmas,
and in spite of the bad weather a
good crowd turned out to hear
George Neeley make his campaign
The speech was a dandy, and he
was interrupted a number of
time by applause. Neeley got the
audience all right. There were
republicans and democrats sitting
together both applauding his ad
dress on progressive government.
"About the only difference these
days between the stand pat repub
licans and the conservative demo
crats" said Hon. George Neelev.
"is the fact that the republican
stands for a protective tariff while
the democrat is for tariff for rev-
, erue only. The only difference
between the progressive democrats
and the progressive republicans, is
chit-tly in the fact that the one is
called a republican and the other a
"In the state they fought side
by side for the progressive meas
ures and four of the five progres
sive measures passed in the last
session of the Kansas legislature
were written by Senator George
Hodges of Olathe. In Congress,
the measures passed by the demo
cratic house were passed through
' the Senate only with the assist
ance of the progressive republi
can senators like LaFollette, Bris
tow and Cummins. These tneas
ures were passed up to the presi
dent who within 4H hours vetoed
vevery one of them. , This is in fact
the president wh6m my opponent
in a speech in Hutchinson last fall.
referred to as ' one of the best
: presidents this country ever had,
but a very poor politician.'?-
The fact that Mirtin has so
many times referred to the presi
dent in glowing terms, the fact
that his campaign was managed b.v
Senator F. Dumont Smith, of old
- Kansas Senate Lodge fame, and
the platform on which he ran for
the nomination, all show the re
publican nominee to beastandpat
tsr. He is backed in Hutchinson
by the standpat railroad crowds,
and besides being an attorney for
the Hock Island, has been intro
duced in several of his speeches by
the attorneys of other railroads,
while they have heralded him as a
man who would be the proper one
to send to Congress to get a revis
ion of freight rates which would
help the bigger towcs in the dis
trict which have commercial aspi
rations. At the same time, Mr.
Neeley is carrying a couple of sets
of papers from the Reno county
District Court which throw a
great deal more light on the inter
est the republican nominee has in
the common people, than his po
lite talks of how prosperous we all
are with our automobiles, import
ed rugs, etc. Now if the people
of the Big Seventh did hive all
these things that Mr. Martin men
tioned here, it would probably be
a winner for him to recite it. How
ever, there are a lot of people
down here is Seward county that
don't have, automobiles, etc, and
such a speech a., that delivered
here will do anything but make
votes for him. The Neeley talk
accomplised considerably . more
than did the speech of Mr. Martin
which had a small crowd. Expres
sions of opinion today show that
Neeley made friends here, and
that his speech has set people
thinking. -

Contractors Figure the Grade
Estimates .
President Fitzgerald returned
from Chicago Monday where he
had been called at the instance of
the contractors who are preparing
their bids for the construction work
the Dodge City-Colmer cut-off.
The contractors, or at least some
of them, had been led to believe
that the road ran through a desert
county and that they would have
to siDk wells to water their stock
and have to haul feed for long
' The company' askeH Mr. Fitz
gerald to come in and tell the bid
ders just what the conditions real
ly were.
Mr. Fitzgerald has been over
the line so many times in recent
months that he could give them
ample assurance of the water sup
ply and of the quantities of feed
that were within sight of the rail
road grade. "How about water,
hay, feed?" was the question he
answered a number of times
And the contractors are working
out their problems as rapidly as
possible as they find the company
is anxious to begin work just as
quickly as they can get in their

appraisers to condemn the lands
for which the right-of-way has not
been contracted. 'Since the ap
praisers were appointed three of
the farmers who had not hereto

and made their peace with the
committee. The fact is there is a
possibility that before the thirty
day advertising period is complet

county will be signed up and there
will be no lands to condemn.
.The Haskell county deeds have
come in and out there the people
are bustling up the slow ones as
they are very anxious to have the
