Anent the prosperity abroad in the land .we might conclude that .the stockholders in the paper trust may be enjoying some of it. We are now paying $13 per ton more for print paper than we did six months ago, and the paper men say the end is not yet The fellow who "canned" Maude's editorial must be one of them. We hope the editors who have been raving about, short skirts are satis fied with the new ones. When we see a lady mincing along all hobbled up with one of the long, narrow gowns, we breathe a prayer of thank fulness that we had no part in aiding her discomfort.

ALLEN BLUFFED I William Alien White, editor of the Emporia Gazette, is not to be prose cuted for cutting: a strike placard in his office window, despite the bluff and bluster of our governor and his political "judges." White posted the placard and de fied the governor's pet "court,'' an institution more vile and dangerous than even the Ku Klux Klan is pic tured by the governor's pet writer in the governors newspaper. The governor, the attorney general, the "judges" of the court, All vowed pub licly that White would be prosecuted. A "judge" was sent to Emporia to personally see that the law was en forced. White dared 'em; he urged 'em; he entreated and demanded but White couldn't get prosecuted. The governor and his stool pigeons the attorney general and the political "judges" of the "court" knew full well that they had gone as far as they dared and rather thdn suffer an igno minious defeat, swallowed all White's wares and 'dismissed the case. At first they tried to give reasons for this. Elmer Peterson, editor of the Beacon, the smoothest little side-stepper in the west, tried to invent ex cuses, but gave up in disgust and started to fight the Klan to distract attention. And yet the governor, who by the grace of the voters of Kansas will become a private citizen in a few weeks, still insists that the people of Kansas did not repudiate the Indus trial court. After the Grange re pudiated it; the Taxpayers League re pudiated it; the voters of Kansas re pudiated it, and the governor and bis henchmen repudiated it them selves in their failure to prosecute Mr. White, this egotist insists that it is Btm a popular law, and that the people of Kansas are favorable to it. The White-Allen episode was the concluding shapter of the Industrial Court idea. Newspapers of other states are poking fun at Kansas and at the governor and his "court," and it is the laughing stock of the United States. "Prosperity at hand in every sec tion of the country," was a headline in last weeks' issue of the Beaver Herald, yet we noticed that that pa per had in its four pages scarcely more than enough advertising to make a page. The article continued: "Prosperity as the result of the pres ent administration continues to in crease. Business, industrial and ag ricultural conditions show steady im provement. From every section of 'the United States comes the some re port." Ve Gods I The extremes to which some editors go in telling the truth. 'The Herald editor evidently got that editorial "canned" from the National Committee and failed to rend it be fore printing. It will be hard to 'make Beaver county farmers believe such a statement when they have with which we could very well dis pense and still havo a good town. There- is just a little bunch of them and they seem to have a sort of wire less system connecting their think tanks. When some proposition comes up to which they do not want to do nate, they are "agin " it, and they den't have to spend their money. They know that there are enough others to keep the old town rolling along and they can save their money to have a good time on. One can always tell whether or not they are going to come across by hitting any one of the bunch. If one says nothing doing, go bet your money that at least four others will give you the same "dope." But, when they, or any one of them are "for" something, they don't hes itate to get out and ask the others to come across. Such dog-in-the-man ger tactics is disgusting to the fellows who are trying to make Liberal a real town, but thank goodness they have not been able to kill one single, solitary little thing as yet. Well just go ahead as if they were not here and help them save their dol lars. "The same company which built the Satatnta branch to Mentor in Stevens, county has secured the con tract to build the Byers road from the new town of Woods on through to the Morton county line. There is to be no more hindering injunctions against the Byers road, says Governor Allen. Elkhart News. This item from the Elkhart News is interesting if true, and we hope it is. ' Byers has! had enough trouble already and Lib eral wants the road despite the fact that a few citizens of the town have hindered it at every opportunity. The Democrat believes in giving credit where credit is due and we want to congratulate the Tucker heirs for the very good proposition they gave the railroad committee of the Chamber of Commerce. The folks had what is bound to become a very valuable tract of land which was so badly cut up by the road that it was almost ruined. When approach ed for a settlement out of court they named a figure deemed by the board as very reasonable and the settlement was made. The fellows who helped put the proposition over feel very kindly toward them over the treat ment meted out. Archdeacon J. W. Jones went to Meade Saturday evening and held services there that evening.

Paul C. Huybrccht, member of the law committee of the International Association of Machinists, and Thos. P. Hyland, General Chairman of the Brotherhood of Railway Machinists, were in Liberal last week and ad dressed a meeting of union men. Mr. Hyland is a member of the policy committee of 90 which deals with the strike situation, and with Mr. Huybrecht has been making a tour of the country to get first hand information on the situation. Mr. Huybrecht said: "I am abso lutely positive that the men will win ; 98 per cent of the men are still out" He said that for the most part they were working at other lines, and were in position to remain out indefinite ly. Mr. Hylan said it was a mistake to speaK or tne iaior situation as a strike,' because it really is a lockout on the part of the roads. According to Mr. Hyland the representative of the Brotherhood of Railway Execu-i j tives, otherwise the union of railroad managers, and President Harding drew up an agreement under which the men would return to work. This was submitted to the officials of the unions and accepted, but the railway executives refused to abide by the agreement. In taking this action Mr. Hyland maintains that the situation should be called a lockout instead of a strike. He says that many roads accepted the proposal and the men went to work, but that others insist that men returning to work give up their unions and join a company union, and this the men will not agree to do. , . . He says that the reason of the car shortage is that no enough experi enced mechanics can be secured to keep the cars in condition and also that the motive power is suffering as a result of inefficient machinist. . Both gentlemen were intelligent, wide-awake fellows, who talked good common sense ,and were not given to vitriolic or bombastic talks. They stated the case concisely and said that the men are merely trying to keep their organizations .alive and would not consider giving up the only means they had of getting decent working conditions. ..- Mrs. Arthur Kraft of Tyrone visit ed at the C.
