Till! CHANUTE TIMES.
. C.S. NATION, Editor and Prop. FRIDAY, APRIL 2, 1897. It begins to look now as if Win. "War ner would be In the McKiuley cabinet inside of a year. A better selection could not be made. It looks now as it though the next republican candidate for governor of Kansas might get the old time repub lican majority 82,000. Should Gov. (Leedy get his misfit legislature to gether again, we would likely make it unanimous. Pi ed Funston,a Kansas boy has been nfade chief of artillery in the Cuban army, and whether or not he has been able to slaughter many of the Spanish, wc arc unable to say. At any rate Fred ,ets his name In the paper about as often as any one. Chester I. Long of the big seventh, .who received many favorable com ments from the press, last fall, for the itand he took when he refused to be come a candidate for an appointive oflicc under McKinley, will be a candi date for governor in 181)8. Mr. Long is a good man and a thorough republican, and yet there are others. The recent gang of political shysters, by courtesy, called the Kansas legisla ture.did at.leastone good thing they iiiiade the popocrat party so unpopular that many of the street corner politi cals have quit talking reform, per capiler, maximum freight rates, two cent railroad fares, anti-pass legisla tion, reduction of salaries & etc., and gone to work. It is an ill wind that blows no good. Tlio winds of discontent are still soughing through the whiskers of the late Senator Pelfcr. lie can sec no beauty in the sunlight, no glory in the dawn, no joy in the gloaming. 1 1 is $,,000 a year salary stopped as suddenly as it commenced, and the world is to him a baxreu waste. lie groans and wails over the wrongs of the oppressed and sheds tears for those who have not 'been smart enough to get a fat ollice. : Teller is a fraud, a nice, respectable, ' decent old fraud of course, but an old : fraud just the same, lie has for years ' howled about the woes and the wrongs of the oppressed people, and said that .the millionaires and the wealthy folks ought to"whack up"in some way with tlio downtrodden serfs. 1'elTer got 830,000 for his term in the senate, and in addition to that gotallhis relatives jobs at the expense of the government. Did he "whack-up" with any one?- Nit. And he isn't going to divide, cither. Teller believes that Pcffer should keep ail he gets. The plutocrats believe the same doctrine. The difference is that the plutocrats openly declare their be lief in their doctrine. Pcffer is rich now, and yet he doscn't divide. There fore, we say he is a fraud. Not because heloesn't divide, for lie would be a .fool if he did, but because he advocates one thingand does another. And right down deep in his heart Pcffer knows be ' is a fraud, just as every other man with sense knows it. It is almost time for him to ring oil on liis hypocritical .sniflles. Lawrence Journal. The appointment of Thomas Ryan of Kansas to the high aud responsible position of Assistant Secretary of the Interior, may be objected to by people who want office for themselves, as the elevation of a persistent oillce holder) but it is the natural rise of a man who lias filled working places and filled them creditably. Mr. Ryan's first civ il ollice; attained over a quarter of a century ago, was that of county at torney of Shawnee county, Kansas. Ilis legal abilities then led to his em ployment as Assistant United States District Attorney. Without ever having held an office outside of the line of his profession, he was elected to Congress and kept there by his con stituency for five terms.

McKinley, of Ohio. Afterwards Mr. Kyan served as Minister to Mexico, a working po sition, for some years, where he dis tinguished himself by bis attention to his duties. Never especially promi nent asa working politician, Mr. Ryan lias always been a worker in the line of official service.

Kansas City Star. politics a Disease. 1 Of all the diseases that humanity Is heir to none seem so fatal as thirst for office. A man may be an excellent farmer, mechanic or merchant, but let him get a taste of public office and business is thenceforth a matter of sec ondary importance to him. Ileappears to feel that he has served his appren ticeship as a tiller of the soil or as a business man aud that the world owes him a living; he feels that his friends who helped him to the first office are his meat, and must bend all their cn engies in his behalf.for the remainder of their lives, otherwise they are trai tors, lie never feels grateful for past favors, but if he gets what he is now after, he will step aside and give his friends a chance. Don't you believe him. If you help a man in a political way once, make up your mind that he feels he has a mortgage on you for the rest of your natural life; he may ask your support the first time, after that he demands it, and he will think ten times more of your neighbor who tights him from the word go, than he will of you, if you after having helped him to secure nine offices in succession, but "go back on him," and conclude to help boost som'e one else when he comes up for the tenth favor at your hands. Politics is a queer disease. mmsts. 1 It is the biggest joke yet on the populist party, half of whose candi dates for office are lawyers, that while it was busy howling and screctclnng about what it was going to do against trusts, corporations and "plutes," the greatest anti-corporation and anti- tiust victory ever gained in the courts of the Unite 1 States has been gained by a Kansas republican, Joe Ady. While the pops were doing the howl ing, a republican without any nois-uir bluster sailed in and broke up all the railroad pools of the country at one fell swoon. Even a pop farmer weighed down by a mortgage to Wall street until he walks humpbacked, must smile at this practical joke at the expense of noisy and belligerent and ineffectual populism. Topeka Capital. Goodbye Trusts. The anti-trust law of 1800, a mea sure of John Sherman's, having been sustained, and made effective by a de cision of the U. S. Supreme Court, marks another score to the credit of that mucb-maligned statesman. The decision is that the anti-trust act of 1800 is applicable to railroads, and its practical effect will be the bringing of all.railroads, with their traffic rates, whether passenger or freight, within the jurisdiction of the interstate com merce commission. It is confidently expected that the decision will cause a speedy dissolution of all the traffic associations in the United States. Frcdonia Citizen. Owing to India's famine, and the Argentine Republic's failure, there will not be one-fourth of a crop of flax seed raised. The northwestern states, the Dakctas,Minneasota aud Iowa will not seed one-half their usual acreage on account of the price of wheat being higher than that of llax. America will not have to exceed one-half a crop and there will be but a small surplus. The price of oil is advancing, so flax seed will be much higher than last sea son.
