THF CIIANUTE TIMES.
C. 8. NATION, Editor and Prop. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1897. loops' Predicament. 1 Last fall the pop candidates when making their school bouse campaign promised the farmers that if they were successful in getting to the leg lslature they would reduce freight rates, cheapen school books, reduce salaries and bring about various other "reforms." They also promised the railroad boys that if they were elected they would not pass any measures that would reduce the earnings of railroads and thereby force the rail road companies to reduce salaries. They cannot keep their promises with both the farmers and railroad boys, and the question is, which will get left? We say the farmer, of course, because they can fix up some new bait for him before next election, or say the republican obstructionists would not "be good" and let them do any thing. Don't believe them. There are 78 pops to 47 republicans in the house and 29 pops to 11 republicans in the senate, consequently the "reform ers" can pass any and all bills they choose, and with Governor Leedy to ign their bills, and a majority of the supreme court to Interpret the law when passed, there Is nothing to keep the aforesaid "reformers" from re deeming their promises except where tlipv nromised both wavs. and here is """"tf XT " where they are in the soup. It is all well enough for a minority party to make sweeping promises, but when bad luck overtakes them and they are elected and called on to redeem so me of the aforesaid agreements they get in trouble. The Legislature. Everyday strengthens our predic tion rnrulc when the legislature met, that nothing would be done. All kinds of "reform" measures have been intro duced and discussed, and some of them have passed one house, but the lobby gets too strong and our"reform"rrifinds either reconsider or place the matter at the bottom of the calender, where it is doomed to never again sec daylight. We incline to think our .Populist friends will have a hard time trying to explain to their constitutions why they introduced about 1500 bills, and passed practically none. They cannot blame the republicans for obstructing matters, as the "reformers" have a clear majority in each house. A school book law ought to be passed, that would reduce the price of this impor tant article, but the one that isjecom mended for passage, makes no provis ions for exchanging old books or taking up the books that the dealers have on hand, and would work a hardship for the first year or two, both to the deal ers and the purchasers of books. A book concern, if given a ten years' con tract, can well afford to exchange and take up the old books. OS. Pension Commissioner. A petition is being circulated and numerously signed asking Tresi-dent-elect McKinley to appoint Hon. S. S. Kirkpatrick, of Fredonia, U. S. Tension Commissioner. Mr. K. is a true friend of the soldier.and lias al ways supported the republican state and national tickets and is deserving. There are others in Kansas who have done the same tiling and never held nor asked for office, and their claims are also to be considered. One thing seems settled and that is that the pension commissioner will be selected from among the republicans who sup ported the ticket last fall, in other words B. Kelly, Esq., preacher-politician, will not be in it. Fifth Ward. A bill introduced by Senator Far relly prevents cities having more than 4000 and less than 8000 inhabi tants having more than four wards has passed both houses and been signed by the governor. We do not know the wording of the bill, bnt are informed that it does not touch Chanute's case, as Chanute's population is less than 4000. It is unfortunate that some kind of a measure could not be brought about that would settle the connection between the two sides of town, but it is now generally conceded that the matter is just where it was when the legislature convened, and must be set tled by the courts. Criticism. The Times has heard of some criticisms of its contents offered by parties who borrow it to read the news. All right gentlemen, if you don't take the Times, borrow it of your neigh bor and read it, and then turn loose on us. It is the cheapest advertising we get. Three new names were added at one clip this week, and all were parties who had heard criticisms offered the Times, and which they considered rec ommendations. Live people want a live paper that dares say what it thinks. jrtaximum Freight Bill Killed. U By a vote of 24 to 13, the "re formers" killed tiie maximum freight rate bill, wnich has been one of the strong planks in its platform for many years. And there are others. Clemens Slaps Pop Law-Mak ers. After the Senate had passed the bill reducing the salaries of diferent state officers including members of the facul ties of the different schools understate control and supervision, G. C. Clem ens, whom Governor Leedy recently appointed supreme court reporter among other things, has this to say of his "reform" brethren: "The committee which sprung this bill upon the Senate and had it rushed madly through evaded every effort of the friends of the state's institutions to bo heard and give information. myself sought an opportunity to pre sent facts concerning the university, and was put off with mere trifling jests. Railroad and book trust representa tives have been given full and curteous hear! ng. But the people have been de nied. Populists were even branded as lobbyists because they dared try to save the educational institutions.and there' by save their party, too. Let the Pop ulists of the state who know us both Judge between the men, Senator Jum per, who applied this epithet, and my self, to whom, in my absence it was applied. "Let time and the voice of the peo ple decide whether these institution wreckers or G. O. Clemens, who begged for the life of those Institutions, acted wisely and well." "The Senate bill reduces the com pensation of two of my assistants to $720 each. I can not get competent assistants at that price; and in my office the slightest lack of competency shows at once and forever upon the printed pagesof thereports. I wasap pointcd by a unanimous court and by request of leading lawyers regardless of party, because of my supposed peculiar fitness for the office of Supreme court reporter, and much is expected of me. I am not at the mercy of the Legisla ture. My compensation can be reduced but then, I am perfectly free to leave the office and save my reputation. I shall not take any chances by working with bargain-counter ability to assist me. 1 am not worried about iuyselt; but I wi-i.U l'lve t-. m'o n.y.iMi'ty 1 till it gets past the teething period least, before it is killed by its nurses A Hog Cholera Remedy. Dr. T. J. Dodge, of Hamilton, 111. writes as follows to the Iowa Home stead on the subject of hog cholera: As the price of hogs is sufficiently high to pay the farmer to usj every means of protecting them from the ravages of the cholera, I deem it my duty to give to the public, free, my re cipe for the cure of what is termed hog cholera. I have used this remedy for thirty three years, and raised hogs all of the time, both here and on my ranch in Nebraska and never lost a hog. Have experimented by placing one well hog with a lot of sick ones and keeping it well by the use of this remedy. You will confer a great blessing on the farmers of our country by publishing this recipe in full in your valuable paper. I am now en gaged in other business, and have been for sixteen years, and am willing to let others prosper by the long years of experience of mine with a remedy I discovered myself for the cure of this disease. The preperation and directions for use are as follows: Arsenic, one-half pound; cape aloes, one-half pound; blue vitrol, one-fourth pound; black antimony, one ounce. Grind and mix well the remedy before using. The following are directions for using. First Sick hogs in all cases to be separated from the well ones and plac ed in dry pens with only five large ones or eight small ones in each pen. Second Feed nothing but dry feed, but no water, only the slop containing the remedy until cured. Third When hogs refuse to eat turn them on their backs, and with a long handled spoon put the dry medi cine down their throats. Fourth Dose for large hogs, one tea spoonful three times a da7 for three days; then miss one day and re peat until cured. Slioats or pigs one half the amount. Fifth As a preventive one tea spoonful once a week will keep your hogs in a healthy condition to take on fat. I can place one well hog in a pen with one hundred sick ones, and with this remedy keep him well. . Sixth Let no other stock but hogs have access to this remedy, as it is to them a deadly poison.
