TIIF MUTE TIMES.
C. S. NATION, Editor and Prop. ERIDAY, JANUARY 1, 1897. Having puichused the Vidette Timeh, I shall attempt to keep it a first class newsnpper and while the greater portion of the paper will be devoted to the news of the day, the politics will remain republican, Vi dettk will be dropped and the name be restored to Its original, The Cda nute Times. We believe that the people of Chunute and vicinity will support a weekly republican paper and that adversers will And The Times a first class advertising med ium. Thh subscription price will remain $1.00 a year, which we think is very low. As for the general make up and usefulness of the paper we shall ask you to wait and see. C. S. Nation, Mi tor and Proprietor. w rr T.tntnn. of Cherrvvalc, one of the popocrat electors, it is alleged, is Ineligible to fill the office to which he was elected on accouut of having ed from the union army about the close of the war. T. J. Anderson, of Topeka, didate for pension agent at having been urged by the f mm different parts of the is a can Topeka soldiers state to ask for the place. Tom Anderson came with his father to Kansas In 1857 and hns lived here continuously fit nP t.in.t, time. He was a soldier during the civil war, entering in 18(il serving faithfully till peace was de clared, raised to the rank of major and was breveted colonel in 1965 for faithful and meritorious service; he has been a consistent republican all his life, always supporting the nation al and state republican nominees; is one of the nrominent G. A. R. men of the state, never missing an encamp ment; in fact Is made of the Kind of stuff the errand old defenders of the stars and stripes desire to have sign up their pension vouchers for the next four years. There is one thing we can safely say thnt whether Or not Major Anderson receives the appoint ment, the man who docs get the tilace. will be one who supported the last national and state admin istra-tion. iTfin. Chester I. Lomr who was de feated for re-election to congress by Jerrv Simpson, has been urged by some of his friends to become a can rliHntn for an appointment under Major McKinley: to this Mr. Long ob jects, claiming that, if he lias any ln llnence with the new administration he will use it for the benefit of some of the republicans whoso gallantly supported him in his race for congress. This is as It should be. Why should a lila party, la supported by nut party fairly and squarely and Riven all oereateu, expect other worthy mem bers of his party to still remain in the background and let this defeated can didate, be him ever so worthy, have everything in sight. There are many worthy republicans In the Big Sev enth as in every other congressional district in Kansas who for harmony's sake and various other reasons step- pea asiae ana permitted their more favored rivals to secure the coveted nominations, and then came up man fully and supported them at the polls and it is our opinion that the latter are entitled to some consideration when It comes to distributing the patronage at the hands of Major Mc Kinley. J- M. Keck, probate Judge elect, was taken with a severe stroke of apo- nlexv Sunday mornlutf, but la now able to bo up.

Thayer, Kan., Dec. 20. Happy New Year greeting to the rejuvenated Times, and its many patrons, the lat ter of whom it is hoped many others will be added as 1807 ages. Arthur Carter of Chanutc, was Chrlstmaslng .and otherwising at Thayer, December the twenty fifth. Notwithstanding tho ante election price for corn stills controls tho mark et, large quantities of that grain are daily marketed here. Last Thursday night Noah Franklin was arrested on a warrant Issued by Squire Campbell charged with keep ing a Gambling house. The prellmin ary examination is set for Monday. Misses Ethel Stout, Alice Chandler, Pansy Sickles, of Independence, Leon Nigh, of Glrard, Chas. Sexton, of Aeodesha and Jessie Hendricks of Chcrryvale wero visiting friends here this week. Tis said that some 33 packages al leged to contain Jugs of splritus fru- menti visited this region in time to participate in, aud become apart of the Christmas festivities of some of our citizens. "Prohibition prohibits saloons", but the evil is scarcely scocthed. Temperance education is thence3cd remedy and-radical cure of the evil. The usual Christmas festivities was observed by the Methodist and PreS' byterian Uhurclies. At the former a Christmas tree with the usual access- orles, was the feature of Chlrtmas eve and many were made happy by being the recipients of giits of more or less value. At the Presbyterian church a large congregation enjoyed a pleasant Christmns evening in listening to an excellent rendition of acantata suited to the occasion, entitled "The Christ mas Star." . While it does not get iuto the large dailies, as periodically as from other localities in the Kansas oil fields, yet the fact remains that the efforts In the developement of tho Thayer field, has been proeuctive of more produc ing wells, and less dry holes, than elsewhere in the field of operation The last well -brought on and shot, was No. 6 on the McFarlin farm, and is one of the best in the field. The Forest Oil Co, intends keeping one string of tools at work here prodding for the pool believed It) be in this vicinity. The preliminary skirmish In the contest for the post office here, is be coming interesting, There nre three arnouncid candidates, Tlios. M;NiUy O. B, Lukens and E. L.

X30ll NO SANTA FE RECEIVER. un Monday. Judge Myers, of the Jefferson county district court hand ed down a decision in the Santa Fe receivership contest, holding that the session law passed by the legislature of 1891 regarding alien ownership of real estate did not refer to railroads, or in other words that the rolling stock and road, bed of a railroad were Inseparable and that the road bed could-not be considered as real estate and hald in the light as firm land, consequently the orders appointing a receiver for said aoad were vacated and denied. The attorney for the I plaintiff gave the usual notice of the appeal but the chances are that there will be no appeal taken and that the muLLer win oe aroppea at tins com menting on the decision of the court The Topeka Capital says editorially: "Now that JudfK) Myers has decided that the alien lond law doeg not apply to railroads in the seata, the scandal of the proposed populist eonnscation of railroad proiwrty will be allow ed to die. But what a notoriety it has given Kansas and what an outrage the whole suit now appears. It has never been shown that any good could come to the state or any class of its people by the proposed codflscation of tho San ta Fe lands on the flimsoy pretexts set up in the petion under the alien land law. The con summation of the Bcheme would hare been a perpetual dishoder to the state. It would have put us for all time in the same class with Ar kansas and Mississippi. It would hare been not only an outrao on the railroad company but a neyer to be forottn scandal to the peo ple of Kunsos.
