The Populists of Meade county cannot be caught on any such hooks ' as were set out by Mr. McNeal last Thursday night. He had better try some other bait as that kind would not even catch "suckors." It is a pity that Judge Selvidge can't go back to Missouri on a visit, each year without being charged with being a citizen of that state. This year he was detained there by the sickness of his brother, who died while Mr. Selvidge was there. We beg pardon of our readers for consuming an extra amount of space this week in discussing politics. This is our last shot and it is our forward 13-inch gun and it takes a heavier charge, too, so be a little patient. We will quit politics cold next week and turn our attention to the development of the salt well, boring for oil or gas or something else. Fuhr in one place charges the writer with being a Republican and a few lines farther says that two years ago we did not vote for one Republican on the ticket. The fol lowing occurred to us, "Consistency, thou art a Jewel where thou art to be found," and we thought an addition like this very applicable, "But thou art not to be found in the make-up of this man." ' " The "Thrifty Citizea's" Interest. From the New York World. A red-hot organ of "McKinleyism asks, "What are trusts and militar ism and ' imperialism to any thrifty citizen of New York?" And its answer is, "A painted devil and a mare's nest." The trusts have made it impossi ble for the "thrifty citizen" to en gage in any one of a hundred kinds of business that used to be open to everybody. They mercilessly close works and factories and throw thrifty citizens out of employment. They arbitrarily fix the prices -f hundreds of' articles which mer chants are permitted to sell only by their grace, and they forbid the thrifty citizen from selling any ar ticle which they do not control, un der penalty of proscription and ruin to his business. They make the thrifty citizen who is a consumer pay higher prices for their products than they are soid for in foreign markets. And they corrupt politics and pervert to their own selfish ends the Government which the thrifty citizen pays to support. The victims of trusts who in clude nearly the whole people will be interested in learning, on the eve of election, that in the view of a McKinley organ these . monopolies are merely a painted figment of the imagination. What militarism and imperialism do to thrifty citizens is equally plain. It is they who have supplied the 5,321 soldiers sacrificed in the war in the Philippines. Has any jingo politician or commercial statesman or money-seeking "expansionist" lost his life in the attempt to reap glory and extend trade in the East? No! The victims of this wretched war of criminal aggression have all been brave regular soldiers or "thrifty citizens" who volunteered. Imperialism everywhere and always plays with the lives of the common people as pawns. U'ere the 51 corpses, the 467 sick soldiers, the 58 convalescents and the 12 insane who arrived at San Francisco on the latest trans port from Manila, and the "2,000 physical wrecks left behind," mere ly the victims of a "mare's nest?" But it is not lives and health alone that are sacrificed in Mr. McKin ley's policy of militarism and im perialism. The "thrifty citizen's" are called upon to pay the expenses of his war. This has already amounted to $200,000,000 and is now costing $4,000,000 a week. When the jingo statesmen at Wash ington voted war taxes did they lay them on incomes or on .wealth in any form, as their imperialist brothers in England did to sustain their war against freedom in South Africa? Not at all! Nine-tenths of our national taxes are collected from consumption the most of it from the common necessaries of life. As our imperial plutocrats pro tected their persons from the perils of war, so they guarded their pock ets from the levies of the tax-gatherer to support that war. If the imperialists had been com pelled to fight their own war and the trade expansionists obliged to pay the bills, the trouble in the Philippines would never have hap pened. A Contrast in Stamp Speakers. At Newburg, N. Y., Monday, to one of his hearers who interrupted him with a cry of "Down with the trusts!" Gov. Roosevelt said: "You are a hoodlum, and nothing else," and much more in the same abusive vein. At Sewall, W. Va., as Mr. Bryan's train was pulling out a man in the crowd shouted a question at him as to why he favored the ratifi cation of the Spanish peace treaty. But Mr. Bryan did not call him a "hoodlum". He had the train stop ped and gave the questioner a full and courteous answer. This con trast in a measure needs no com ment. ' Hon. John Sherman For Freedom. From the New York World. The following letter from ex-Secretary of State John Sherman was written for and published with the World's remarkable page of answers to the question "What ought we do with the Philippines?" on Sept 4, 1898: To the Editor of the World: In response to your request I ex press my well-considered opinion that the United States ought not to accept sovereignity over the Philip pines, but should secure the inher ent right of the people of those is lands to form and maintain a re publican goverement similar to our own. John Sherman. There is no good reason why Ed monds would serve the interests of the cattlemen of this county any bet ter than Mr. Adamswould. Adams is an old resident of this county and is equally, if not better, qualified for the position than Mr, Edmonds. Vote for S. D. Adams and you will never regret it. Hon. Lot Ravenscraft should re ceive your vote next Tuesday. He is one of the best men who ever served a constituency and will be no exception now. - Vote for Woodard for Probate Judge.. I Our Correspondents. j J V rlT wI rrVfJ 1 VTWT 1 fTV FOWLER NEWS. We were blessed with a fine rain last Sunday, it was much needed on the wheat. We can not state the amount of rain for guage was top side down. Quite a number of our young people attended a party Monday night at Mr. Randolph's, given as a surprise on Miss Lulu. All that attended report a good time and glad they attended. Mr. Small was a pleasant caller in the city last Saturday. Sam Turner came home last week from Bloom where he has been working for several months. Judge Selvidge was up last Tuesday "setting 'em up" to the boys and spinning yarns. For instructions for killing chickens in the sand hills ask Jas. Brock, who has had some ex perience at crawling over the sand burr covered hills. Chas. Keith was transacting business in the city last week. Misses Stella and Mollie Bur ford returned last w.eek after a month's visit in Sumner county. Candidates are all the go now days, which creates a good trade in the cigar business. Mr. and Henry Burford de horned and branded cattle at Mr. Ellis' last Monday, and if you want to know any new tricks on calves go to W. A. Burford for instructions as he has had ex perience. Weslie Edwards stopped in the city last Thursday night on his way home from a visit in the east ern part of this state and in Mis souri. B. E. Crane met with what you might call a serious accident to his bic)rcle and as a result it re quires a new frame. Mr. and Mrs. aeaiocK were pleasant callers oyer on the east side last vveek. Everybody is making prepara tions to go to Meade to the Bryan club next Saturday night which is the last meeting and bids fair to be a howling success. From the appearance of things last Saturday we would judge that Fowler was so high up as to have an athletic club. While Lem Kaisle was waiting for the train Saturday night his horse thought he would play some tricks such as turning the cart upside down and then turn ing around to examine the wreck. As a result there will be work for the blacksmith. Frank Nett departed for Lib eral last Thusday night where he expects to visit for several days. CarlEllis andSam Turnerwent to a dance at Arkalon last Friday nigfit. They enjoyed a good time. ' Mr. and Mrs. A. J. McCauley returned home last Friday night from the east, where they have been visiting, Maurice Frazier and wife visit ed in the northwest parts last Saturday and Sunday. Quite a number of our good people attended the republican speaking at Meade last week. They report him a good story teller but a good, sound argu ment was something he was de void of. Fred Nett has taken up an ap prenticeship with John Sims. Mr. Springer was doing busi ness in the city last Tuesday. Crackerjack. items from plains. Miss Eva Smith came up from Arkalon Monday morning. Mrs. Edwards went to Meade Monday morning. Mrs. Bisbee is in Meade taking care of her little nephew who is sick. Miss Petefish went to Meade on the train Saturday morning, returning Sunday with Mr. Adams, as he made his custom ary trip to Plains for Mr. Thomp son. Mr. Shinogle had a runaway Monday morning, but no damage was done. . Robert Campbell shipped three car loads of cattle from here Tuesday evening to St. Joe, Mo. Mr. Davis and Mr, Sourbeer have been over in this township seeing the voters. Mrs. Kerr and family, started east on a visit Tuesday morning. Mr. Count is at the depot look ing jifter the interests of the R. I. during Mrs. Kerr's absence.. F, A. Norman returned from Hutchinson Tuesday evening. . ' Sunflower. EAST SIDE ITEMS. The Lake view S. S. has over $25 collected for an organ. B. I. VanHoesen and C. P.Fletcher are the soliciters and they have done well. What is the matter with Kan sas? We have heard of crops growing so fast that -two crops were cut at once. One of our worthy farmers beat. that. His second crop of cane grew so fast that he did not get the first crop raked, so raked the two crops at once. Chas. McNamara is working for James Wood at Meade, Chas. Keith was at S. M. Ben nett's Tuesday. Miss Mary Bennett visited with Mrs. T. Veach last Saturday and Sunday. It was quite rainy last Sunday but there was a large crowd at Sunday School The preacher came down last Sunday and held services at the school house. Candidates are now the order of the day. Miss Laura Smith came down from her school near Fowler last Friday evening and visited with her brother James Saturday and Sunday. Well, as election will have been past before we write again, we hope every conscientious voter will have cast his ballot for right, honor, justice and equality of all men, for American labor and for America, and in so doing he will have voted the Democrat-Pppu- list ticket from W, J. Bryan for President to John Conrad for County Commissioner. East Sider. A Republican Canard Rcfnted. It appears that Chester, I. Long has been misrepresenting Claude Duval to a Catholic priest at Wichita by accusing him of be ing a member of the A. P. A.'s. The following is Mr. Duval's r& ply to Mr. Geo. T. Pitts, Chair man of the Congressional Com mittee, which explains itself: McPherson, Kas., Oct. 25, 1900. Hon: Geo. T. Pitts, Wellington, Kas. My Dear Sin In reply to your letter of the 24th inst. asking if I am or ever have been a member ;af the A. P. A. as told by the Hon. Chester I. Long to a piominent Catholic minister of this district, beg to say that I never have at auy time, nor am I now, either in spirit or in fact been a member of the A. P. A.'s. I am one of those who be lieve that every individual should have the privilege and right, be they Catholic or Prot- estent, to worship their God at the dictates of their own conscience. It is true that I am a Protestent, a member of the Presbyterian church and am an active worker in the Sun day school, but I have never referred to this fact in the campaign, either privately or pub licly, because I believe that the great work of all Christian organizations in their various de partments is for the purpose of elevating the morals and general character of the people, both old and young, up to the highest plane of good citizenship, and that such work should be wholly and e itirely separate from politics for the purpose of advancing the welfare of our country to the end that our municipal, county, state and national governments may be conducted with honor and justice to all people, with special privileges to none and equal opportunities to all. I am surprised that Mr. Long should so far forget these great principles of justice as to personally, himself, misrepresent me to one of the great Christian organizations of our country. . Again answering you that this statement to the Catholic minister is absolutely false, I re main Very truly, Claudk Duval. Vote for Selvidge for County At torney. Vote for the Judicial Amendment to the Constitution. Vote for Miss: Maggie Martin for County Superintendent. Vote for Conrad for Commission er and your own interests. John Elliott should be remember ed by the voters on next Tuesday when they go to the polls. Vote for Claude Duval for Con gress. He will make us a good con gressman and always represent the people. Meade county will give Bryan and Stevenson a full party vote. The prospects for them carrying the county is good. We hope no one is foolish enough to believe that thi country would be ruined by Bryan's election. Every thing would go on just the same. Frank Davis is still very busy ex plaining his position on different matters, to the voters. He was very anxious that this paper not say any thing " about his candidacy, that he might have easier , sailing, but we have tried to" give the voters some thing to think about and we are of the opinion, that Frank will think they considered it, about this time next week, . The Globe says ."we want our county warrants at par." So do we, but everyone in this county, with the brains of an oyster, knows why they are not at par. Why, did you ask? Because the monev that was collected as taxes was not legitimate ly appropriated. There is at this time between $5,000 and $6,000 in county warrants outstanding. The amount of shortage found to exist in the county treasurer's office was nearly $4,000.. The expert exami nation to find the shortage cost over $1,000. The sum of these will more than balance the amount of out standing warrants, thus leaving them at par, provided all the money col lected had been left in the treasury, where it would have been had the clerk and treasurer complied with their duties. Now, we don't want to hear any more of this kind of silly clap-trap from Fuhr as he knows it as well as we do, but is only prevented from publishing the facts by his love for Wiley coupled with his well known reputation for hypocrisy and inconsistency.
