The new floors of the building were smooth, clean and shiny, and by the time the children walked through with mud hanging on their shoes like festoons from a southern poplar tree, it looked like a scene in a dismal swamp.

SE l!fK3S RYI mm Thje Liberal Democrat J. B. MILLER Owner Entered as second class matter Jan uary 6, 1911, at the post office at Liberal, Kansas, under the Act of March 3, 1879. Published Every Thursday at Liberal, Seward County, Kansas. OFFICIAL PAPER OF SEWARD COUNTY, LIBERAL CITY AND UNITED STATES LAND OFFICE Subscription Price - - $1.60 Per Year BETTER CUT FRIGHT RATES We note in the morning papers that the labor committee of the Rail way Executives are in their way to Chicago to take up the matter of a reduction of wages of railroad work ers. , It is claimed by the railroad offi cials that the roads are not earning them six per cent they are allowed by the railroad law passed by the last session of congress, and that the only hope they have is a reduction of wages. Just where the public comes in is not apparent. To the average person freight rntes are a plenty. Last week we received a shipment of a ton of print paper and two little packages of writing paper and the freight was $21 .!5 from Wichita. If the railroads cannot make money at this figure they had just as well quit. Everyone yelled when the govern ment raised freight rates, but just as sonn as the companies got tha Ccieago to take up the matter of a hike, and the public should give the roads to understand that if there is any reductions they are going to take their share. There is no question but what under the railroad law now in effect the railroads are hanging it on to the people good and plenty and they will find public sentiment pretty much against them if they start any wage reductions without giving tha public the benefit of the cut.
