The Hutchinson News will prob ably realize, about the 8th of next November, that Claude Duval had used some other awful strong argu ment aside from poetry. The Sultan of Sulu recently left his capitol and no one knows where he has gone. An exchange intimates that he has come to the United States and is going to stump Utah for Mark and Mack. More American lives have been lost in the Philippines than these islands ever were, or ever will be worth. Because human life cannot be figured in dollars and cents. Will some spell-binder deny this statement? The policy of the Democratic party is to make the same proposi tion to the Filipinos that has been promised Cuba. How can any American citizen say it would not be right? If you are thoroughly in love with freedom and liberty you will say that all nations should be free and this is no exception. We would like to see some of the fellows who are howling about the disgrace that it would bring upon our flag, should we make the Filipi nos free, and whose occupation is running for office, go over to those islands and help in the "benevolent assimilation." It is always the loud est howler when furthest from dan ger. Do not be deceived by anyone who tells you that the Democrats are in favor of hauling down the flag and abandoning the Philippine Islands. It is not true and no pub lic speaker ever said so on the stump. Read the platform of the Kansas City convention in regard to the islands and they intend to do just exactly what that plank says.. . The Candidates. W. J. "Woodard, candidate for Probate Judge is well known to all the voters "of Meade county. He served a term as trustee of this town ship and was a good official. He will see you and further press his claim. Geo. S. Selvidge, for County At torney, will make a competent offi cer. He served" one term and you can examine his record, it is good. The voters of this county will do the proper thing by eleting Mr. Sel vidge. John Elliott has served only one year and his record is good. He was elected last fall for an unexpired term. He has made a good officer and is entitled to a second term. Miss Maggie Martin, the nominee for County Superintendent, is one of the most popular teachers in this county and is now teaching the grammar department of the Meade schools. That she would make a good officer, no one doubts and will get a large vote as she is very popu lar with everyone. John F. Conrad has served one full term as commissioner and is en titled to a second term. Mr. Con rad has done his duty as the servant of the people and they should endorse him for his course. His action in the Wiley case alone should overwhelmingly elect him. We now find that Wiley and his few followers are using all their efforts to defeat Mr. Conrad the same as they did John Innis last year. Are the people of Meade county going to permit Wiley, Fuhr, Painter and others dictate who the officers of this county shall be or will you elect men who are opposed to them and do not belong to their crowd? Now, we don't ask you to take our word for this, but examine and enquire for yourself.' The question is: "Are you going to sustain John Conrad in his position or will you turn him down?" The Speakers. Immediately after after the con vention Mr. Bennett rapped for order and appointed a committee to escort Messrs. Duval and Ravens craft to the hall and Mr. Duval be ing introduced addressed one of the largest and most attentive audiences that ever listened to a public speak er in this city. He presented the issues in a clear, logical manner and was warmly congratulated by his friends. As an orator Mr. Duval need take no back seat and is able to hold his side of the question with most any of the public orators and in this we do not except his oppon ent and think that he is also abund antly able to take care of him. Mr, Duval, with a few years experience will be in the foremost ranks and during his speech Saturday the at tention was so strict that most of the time a pin could have been drop ped and heard all over the hall We think it the best speech we have heard this year and this is the opin ion of many others. Even Repub licans said he was a good speaker and were surprised. The fusion forces can well feel proud of Mr, Duval as a man whose integrity is beyond question and upon the floor of the House would soon take rank with the best men of that body. After Mr; Duval had finished, Mr, Ravenscraft was introduced and made a few remarks on state issues What Mr. Ravenscraft lacks as 1 public orator, he makes up for as a first class man and an untiring work er in the legislature in which body he served two terms from Clark county, defeating Harry Bone four years ago. Mr. Ravenscraft was a member of the live stock committee four years ago and was responsible for considerable of the stock yards legislation of that session and was a valuable member in other matters Mr. Ravenscraft should be elected Senator from this district that he might continue his excellent work already begun in the House. At the conclusion of the meeting a vote of thanks was extended to the Glee club, consisting of Messrs Norman Elliott, John Russell, Jess McKinney, Alf Siegel, Tom Hotz and Mrs. Fred Gray, for the excel lent music furnished. A vote of thanks was also extend ed to some unknown person who had placed a beautiful boquet on the speakers table. The re-union committee was also thanked for the beef and other pro visions furnished which made the free barbecue possible. Hanna now wants to debate with Bryan. He must be getting short on speakers when he has to take the stump himself. Oup Correspondents. FOWLER NEWS.

Wednesday morning was spent in social intercourse and renewing old acquaintship among the old soldiers. At 2 o'clock p. m. a parade was formed at the camp, headed by the Meade cornet band. A line of march was taken to the court house where the reunion was opened by the Presi dent, R. W. Griggs, invocation by Chaplain Newman of the Ft. Dodge Soldiers' Home, followed by music by the Meade band, after which the audience joined in singing ''Amer ica," led by the choir. Addresses of wel come were delivered by President Griggs, Secretary Painter, Capt. W. C. Osgood, and the daughter of the regiment, Mrs. Josie Rhodes. The same were responded to by comrades . R. Quinn and Henry Mott, of Beaver county, Okla., when the audience joined the choir in singing "The battle cry of freedom." Then Miss Agnes Wehrle ren dered a splendid recitation, followed by an other very appropriate recitation by Mrs. Randall, followed by a chorus, The Star Spangled Banner." Miss Buelah Gilpin, of Ft. Dodge, then gave a fine recitation, when all joined in singing "John Brown." After some splendid music by the Meade band and Ft. Dodge drum corps an adjournment was taken until 8 o'clock p. m. At that time President Griggs called the camp fire to order, announcing that past President R. Buis would preside. The pro gram opened by singing "Rally 'round the flag" followed by camp fire speeches by com rades D. L. Sweeney of Dodge City, J, R. Sencenich of the Soldiers' home; then singing "Marching through Georgia" in which the audience took a lively part. J. H. Ca mp, late 1st Sarjt. in 17th Virginia Cavalry, C.

Miss Sue Painter 'gave a recita tion, which was well rendered, after which Phyllis Fuhr sang a solo that drew from the immense crowd loud applause. Fine recita tions were given by Nellie Sumpter and Genevieve McMeel, then a song by two little children known as Mrs. Steele's children Misses Hazel Rieman and Ada Kessler then sang a duet. Miss Clara Fick gave a fine recitation after which, by request, Had Lane of Liberal gave a Dutchman's story of his ex perience in his first battle. A recitation by Miss Edna Stutsman was splendidly rendered and little Miss Ida Perry sang a song. For one of her years she sang remarkably well. Recitations were given by Miss Jessie Nett, of Fowler, who for one so young does grand ly. Miss Carrie Campbell recited next in her trained style after which Miss Jessie Nett came forward with a solo. The young ladies of Meade gave a red, white and blue drill in uniform which was executed in a way that did credit to the girls and those who assisted them in preparing the drill. While the girls in the drill were preparing to sing, Capt. Mott by request rendered the song that has made him famous at reunions, "Joe Bowers" when the drill girls returned and sang "Red, White and Blue." The band then, played a patriotic air, after which the audience arose and joined the choir in singing "Blest be the tie that binds," and an adjournment was tak en till the evening.

' To be sung to the air of "Afton Water," the words being also after the manner of that noble Republican poet, Robert Burns, in the same poem: Talk switfly. sweet Teddy, we love thy load brays; Talk swiftly, well sins' thee a song- in thy praise; While Bryan's asleep in far Lincoln, 'tis best. To talk swiftly, sweet Teddy, disturb not Ins rest. Rough Riders, whose echoes resound to the shore! Ye wild, whooping- Gold birds, aU kicking once more! Thou green-seeming- Pop, thy loud screaming forbear! Disturb not, we beg, Ted's political tear. How lofty, sweet Teddy, thy strenuous life. E'en Mark Hanna felt in the course of the strife; And daily we wonder, as Piatt rises high, . What plum thou'll want i the political pie. How pleasant to feel that a fighter is blest. And death in the far away Philippines best, Our battle-cry's ever "In God is our Trust!" With the added proviso, "Expansion or bust!" Thy crystal talk, Teddy, how senseless it glides And winds thro' thy hat, that still with us abides! How wanton thy words thro' thy snowy teeth flow In New York, Oklahoma or Porto Rico. Dodge City Advance. EDUCATIONAL. A comparison of the annual report of the schools of Meade county for the year ending June 30, 1899, with that for the corresponding period 1900 shows an increase in school pop ulation of forty-five persons. The average length of school term in weeks has increased from ijyi to 22. The average wages of male teachers per month has risen from $41 to $47.50 and of female teachers from $31.10 to 32.20. The disproportionate advance in the average wages of male teachers is due to the fact that of the 24 months taught by male teachers, 1 7 were in the schools of Meade and Fowler where the highest salaries were paid. While the number of pupils, length of school term and teacheis' wages have advanc ed as shown above, the average tax levy for school purposes has fallen from 1 4)4 mills to 12 mills. The estimated value of school property re mains practically the same and the bonded in debtedness has decreased $2010. Notwithstanding the advance in teachers' wages the number of applicants for certificates has fallen from 49 to 35. 1 The next annual report will show a more marked increase in the average pay of female teachers. District clerks will please report employ merit of teacher and commencement of school term. J. A. Porterfield, Co. Supt Mailing a Magazine. Eighteen men, aided by the fastest mailing appliances, are kept on a rush every month getting The Ladies' Home Journal oS to its subscribers. The first shipments are started about the middle of each month, and from that time until the twenty-fifth the magazines pour out of the Journal's publishing office by the two-horse-dray load. On the twenty-fifth of each month every Journal has reached its dtstination, and work in the mailing depart ment slackens for a few days. Some idea of the tremendous size of the Journal's subsrip tion list may be gained when it is known that forty tons of mailing type is required to set up the names of subscribers. There are three quarters of a ton of each numeral, and it re quires twenty thousand galleys to accommo date the subscribers' names in type. This stock would equip six or eight large daily newspapers. As many as sixty-five composi tors are employed setting the names of the Journal's subscribers in type printers enough to set the type for the biggest metropolitan daily newspaper. The expenses for postage paid by rhe Journal approximate $75,000 a year. New Fall millinery at Wehrle's, Call and examine the new goods. A. W.
