THE CIIANUTE TIMES.
C. S. NATION, Editor and Prop.
FRIDAY, JUNE 11 1897.
Jerry Simpson is still laboring under
the delusion that he is running the
House of representations,.
John AVannamaker who wanted to
be U. S. senator from Pennsylvania
and was beaten by Senator Quay,
thinks the republican party is going
to ruin, if Mr. Wannamaker was in
Kansas he would join the "reformers."
One of the results of the cool weath
er the past few weeks lias been to
bring the wheat out wonderfully and
prevent the disastrous woik of the
chinch bugs. There is always some
thing coming up to discourage the
Kansas will have one of the largest
crops of wheat in tne history of the
state, and if the present McKinley
prices obtain, several millions of dol
lars more will be realized for it than
had the boy orator of the Platte suc
ceeded Grover Cleveland.
Chief Justice Doster in dis
senting from the, decision of
the majority of the Supreme
court took occasion to score some of
the former decisions of that body and
offer advice to courts generally. A
pop is nothing if not profuse In advice.
Great progress has been made with
the tariff bill in the senate thus far.
Senator Vest shortly after the meas
ure was brought up. said that more
ground had been covered by the Senate
in three days on the Dingley bill than
in three weeks on the Wilson bill.
There has been no"let up"in the speed
since. There is a strong probability
that the bill will pass the Senate be
fore the Fourth of July. The demo
crats have promised not to resort to
any obstructive tactics agaiinst the
bill and they have kept their word
a'ong to this time. Globe Democrat.
The lynching of the negro Mitchell,
of Ohio after he had been sentenced to
20 years in the penitentiary for crimi
nally assaulting a white wonian, is an
other proof that when the sentence of
the court or the penalty laid down by
statute is too light, the people will take
the law into their own hands. Willie
Sells would never have been allowed to
leave 'Neosho county had his sentence
been less than life imprisonment, or
had there been a shadow of belief that
in these few years such a sentiment
could have been worked up among a
few weak women and unconcerned
men (all seeking notriety) in his favor.
If Willie Sells is to be pardoned, the
gates of the Kansas penitentiary
should be thrown wide open, as no
more cold-blooded, heinous, premedi
tated crime than his was ever committed.
We are very mixious for republican newspa
ht that are continually referring to the hood
linir of last winter's legislature to make some
specific charges against fomejone. The investig
ating committee at Topeka has fmit nearly a
month in hearing evidence on which there was.
absolutely no restrictions, having allowed wit
nesses Lto testify to all manner of hearing and
rumors, and yet in the light of all the evidence,
there is no grounds for a sensible man of honest
judgment to believe the charges. Come, now be
specific, if there are any boodiers the "Pops"
want to know it. Erie Sentinel.
The Sentinel well knows that
the charged of boodling have not been
made by republican newspapers or re
publican legislators; that they have
been made entirely by the pop mem
bers of the legislature and pop news
papers; that when the republicans re
fer to the matter at all, they only
(Hiote from the "reform" papers and
the evidence given by the"reformers"
before the "reform" committee of
which"reformer" Outcalt is chairman;
that Tutcher and Boyd who were
charged with offering bribes, were"re
formers;" that the five senators whom
cue of the members said had been fixed
were reformers; that every man sum
moned to testify before the invest!
gating committee was a "reformer,"
that every man who was in any way
charged withjhaving been offered or
having received any money for his vote
or "influence" was a "reformer" and
that the charge was made by a "re
former;" that in no instance was the
charge of bribery made by a republi
can nor against a republican. That
the whole muss was stirred up by the
"reform" brethren among themselves
and that the republicans stood back as
quiet spectators and looked on, in fact
they were so scarce in thelate"reform"
legislature that they were compelled
to be satisiied with being allowed to
remain in the same buildings with the
"reform" bodies while they were cat
hauling among themselves and were
grateful that it was no worse; that
the supreme court which has delayed
its decision as to whether or not the
"reform" committee can compel "re
former" Davis to testify before it un
til the "reform" members who made
the boodle charges among their brother
'reformers" cool down somewhat is
made up of a majority of "reformers,"
in fact that it is a family quarrel
among the pop brethren and that the
the matter is in the old adge viz:
"When thieves fall out &c." "Re
former" Clark Davis of Wilson county
testified that he knew money had been
offered to legislators and that he knew
money had been accepted for the pur
pose of influencing legislation, but re
fused to give the names of his Pop
brethren who had gone wrong, and
said: "This investigation is hurting
our party." Well yes, we think he told
the truth. It is hurting the party; in
fact it has driven from the fold many
of the honest members of the party,
who went into thc"reform"party from
honest motives, having been mislead
by the blarney and exaggerations of
the self appointed leaders of the mis
fit party who never failed to keep one
eye on the ptecounter.The fellows who
to joined the "reform"party from pure
motives begin to see that they have
been mislead; that their leaders are
hypocrites; that the recent legisla
ture abandoned their platform and
ignored their ante-election promis
es and in short that the whole "re
form" movement is a misnomer, and
that after all a man gets just about
what he gets up and earns, and that
the les9 he has to do with politics, the
better it is for him. No, brother Alli
son, republican papers are making no
charges against your reform brethern,
but are simply looking on and enjoy
ing the fun.
The farmers who are living on
small farms and are raising small
fruit are strictly in it this year.
Those near Chanute who have straw
berries or blackberries will realize
from $50 to 8100 per acre for their land
after paying all expenses. A man
with ten acres of ground can clear
more moneylthan the fellow who half
farm9 a quarter section. One of the
troubles with-the people of this decade
is crowding into the towns. Too many
want to do work forjwages and in many
Instances name the wages. Improved
machinery is knocking many working
men out of jobs; farmers as well as
men of other callings, are purchasing
labor saving machinery, and no one
blames them for it, but when one man
with a team takes the place of six, it
means five out of work, consequently,
they must go at something else. One
thing seems evident.and that is.farms
must be divided into smaller tracts
and more men must'become tillers of
the soil and fewer wage-earners. There
are too many producers of manufac
tured articles compared with users of
the same. Manufacturers get their
warehouses full of goods and must lay
their men off or put them on short
time, etc. Many will tell you that
there are too many farmers now;
that farm products are low and that
farming does not pay;well, this is true
to a certain eitent. It is true that
the opportunities for getting rich are
not so plentiful in any line as they
were a quarter of a century ago, but
any ' man who will live at home with
his family canmake a good living on
any 40 acres of land inJNeosho county,
and if he will be economical and care
ful and has good health, he can get
some ahead. People are becoming
better educated, and the chances of
getting ahead by sharp practices are
not so numerous as they were a quar
ter of a century ago; as education be
comes more universal, people of all
callings want to live better, dress
better and have better furniture in
their houses than formerly, and it is
right that they should, but the educa
tion of the masses is hard on the
schemer, the fellow who expects his
wits to make his living;Ipeopleare get
ting more on an equality; many work
ing men have line homes, Brussells
carpets, pianos, ond their wives have
more furniture in their kitchens than
their mothers had in their entire houe
es. The world is all right, but the
people cannot all live in cities and de
pend on public works; they must scat
ter anl more of them become tillers
of the soil, and while the opportuni
ties of getting rich are not very great,
they can be more independent than
wage-earners and be under obligations
to no one.
1 As was predicted by the TisiEs.the
supreme court Saturday decided that
the investigation committe appointed
by the pop legislature to investigate
some alleged crookedness among the
reformers.has no power to compel wit
nesses to answer questions. No one is
surprised at the decision. The "re
formers" knew when the committee
was appointed that it could not punish
witness for contempt after the legis
lature adjourned, but in order to make
some of the more consciencious mem
bers of the party believe they were op
posed to boodling, the committee was
appointed. It was all buncombe from
start to finish. After investigating
for a short time and finding out more
than It wanted to know, the commit
tee concluded to use Clark Davis as
way out of the muddle. It was agreed
that he should claim to be in possess
ion of important evidence, but refuse
to give up his colleagues, after which
a test case would ensue, and that . the
supreme court would of course, decide
that the committee was powerless &c.
It worked like a charm and the pops
are now out of the predicament. They
can can put in their time iroin now
shown up the meanness of the re
publicans if the investigation had
continued. They are however hav
ing trouble in keeping the better ele
ment of the pops in the dark, and it
is no uncommon occurence to hear one
of them remark that he is done with
politics pop politics.
