THE CIIANUTE TIMES.
C. S. NATION, Editor and Prop. FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1897. Q nother Landmark Gone. " Sol Miller, the veteran editor of the Troy Chief died at his home in Troy, Kansas, Saturday morning the 17th inst. at 7:30, after a lingering ill ness. Mr. Miller had been declining for several days, and his physicians had warned him that the end was near. Just a few days before his death he ar ranged his business affairs and pre pared for final dissolution. It was forty years ago the 28th of March when Sol Miller set foot on Kansas soil at White Cloud for a per manent residence, lie was born in Indiana, January 22, 1831, but always reckoned himself an Ohioan because of having lived there from the time he was a few months old up to the time of his coming West. He was mar ried in September, 1855. Mr. Miller was the oldest editor in continuous service in Kansas, and his paper is the oldest in the state. He and the Chief chummed together for forty years, through seasons of pros perity and adversity. Both were true friends of Kansas. Editor Miller was a blunt writer. He swune a vitriolic pen. ne never beat about the bush when there was a job of skinning to do. It is an acknowl edged fact among all newspaper men that articles appeared in his paper which, if they had appeared in any other uaDer in the country, would have caused the postofflce authorities to deny them the. use of the mans. But he was never molested. "In his relations with other men, Mr. Miller was honest and conscien tious. Through four terms in the Kan sas senate and one in the house, his . character was never assailed. He was partisan to a bitter degree and in po litical discussions never asked or gave quarter. To his friends he was intense ly loyal, and would fight for them through his paper, right or wrong, while for his political enemy he ex hausted the harshness of his vigorous vocabulary. He hated ignorance, and yet, with strange incongruity, he waged war upon the hlghteit educa tional institution of his state. In per sonal contact he was not companion able, but neither was he repellant. Others might do the talking while he listened. So, hastily, may be sketched a man whose personality was great enough to carve for himself a place. He will live in the memory of Kansas for many a year, and upon the pages of her his tory his name will stand strongly forth." Rail Koad Time Table. There is no reason in the world why Colonel Fred D. Grant and Mr. John A. Logan should feel so sore over their failure to obtain the places they wished under the new administration. It was natural that they should be disappoin ted, as all office seekers are who fall short of their expectations. But these gentlemen deserved the failure they lament. They aspired to office not on their own merits.but on account of the achievements of their fathers. Nei ther titles of nobility nor preference to office are hederltary in this country and whatever obligations are due to a distinguished public servant are can celed at his death or discharge in some other way than by the appointment of his sons to office. The fact that Colo nel Grant and Mr. Logan are sons of illustrious sires, does not and should not interfere with their ambition to office or impair their opportunities of fulfilling it. But neither docs it con stitute a reason for their appoint ment to places for which they have neither natural nor acquired quail fica tions. K. C. Star. "Evidence is rapidly accumulating that the populist party in Kansas is nothing more than a band of thieves and vandals hotly exclaims the Kan sas City Journal. This is unjust. It applies to the leaders only. The rank and file of the party are honest men who are being buncoed by the leaders. It has taken them a long time to dis cover that they have bought gold bricks'.but they knpw it now. Or if they don't, then every man who here after offers to vote a populist ticket Ought to have a committee of inquiry appointed as to his honesty or his san ity. Lawrence Journal. Wichita spiritualists have made a proposition to Louis James to "ma terialize" Julius Ca?ser for him,s that the audience, instead of seeing a play, Julius may have the privilege of look ing upon the real one. If the experi ment is a success,the Wichita people ought to try their band on the demo cratic party of Kansas and see if they can materialize that. Lawrence Journal.
