THE CIIAITE TIMES.
C. S. NATION, Editor and Prop. FRIDAY, JUNE 2$, 1897. The appointment of Dr. Pllcher to be superintendent of the reform sciioo at Winfleld has been hung up till the the next meeting of the board. There are a number of oftlccs hi Ne oslio county which will become vacant In January unless some of our states men conclude to ask for them. Who is willing to mako the sacrifice? We have been trying without suo cess, to find an old fashioned "rcfor mer" who had cut loose from the old parties, because they were "both cor ruptone as bad as the otner. If the dods and democrats (?) fuse In Kansas, and it is necessary to call a delegate convention on what will the democrats base their call for tue ais tribution of delegates? They had no ticket In the field last year. The rain Saturday night and Sunday morning wasoneof the heaviestof the season and the farmers who are willing to nut their shoulders to the wheel and help make "that wave" are rejoicing; the croakers seem disheartnea. EdC. Little thinks Missouri has hogged Kansas out of a strip of land one-half mile wide, running from the mouth of the Kaw River to the Terri tory line. If Ed secures this strip of ground, it will throw the Union aepoi at Kansas City, Mo., into Kansas. Since horses, cattle, corn, wheat and in fact almost every article a farmer has to sell has gone up, the reformers are beginning to admit that times are better, but some of them insinuate that the Leedy administration has had more to do .with bringing about the result than the election of Mc Kinley. Last week the pops declared that the weather would ruin the corn and flax crop. Now that we have had bountiful rains, they assert that the outlook is favorable for big crops, but that the price will be so low that no one will be able to make any money. This is all folderal; every man who fed his corn to hogs or cattle last wear got from 25 to 40c per bushel for it. The pops are making a great bluff about firing L. D. Lewelllng from the board of railroad commissioners; they will never do it; Lewelllng seems to have some unsavory record during the last session of the legislature, but the other fellow dare not squeal on him. Lewelllng is as good as the other re form leaders, and will be allowed to draw his salary as u railroad com missioncr for two years. The pops and democrats in Kansas are trying to fuse ou county officers and will succeed if the division of spoils can be agreed on. We would suggest that.as there were not enough democratic votes cast in Kansas to give a democrat a place on the ticket at ail, under uur present ballot law, the alleged democrats be given coroner and surveyor as their reasonable share of the swag. These offl'.-es seem to be about the size of the democrat party in Kansas. Lieut. Gov. Woodrutf, of New York said in a speech to a board of trade last week, that although the popula tion of this country is 20,000,000 more than it was eighteen years ago, there are fewer persons out of work now than then.- The Troy Times says the as sertion is true in that city, as anyone can see who looks at the streets with "their well-filled street cars, their fast succeeding bicycles, and their nicely dressed and plump-faced pedes trians. "Globe-Democrat. Mr. Bryan is about to make his sec ond visit to the state since the elec tion. During the campaign he would not come at all, and his friends insis ted that it was because he considered the state safe for him and would not waste valuable time here. By the same line of reasoning, his frequent visits now would indicate that he con siders the state is slipping from his grasp. And he is right. If Mr. Bryan should visit us every month until the next election.he could notsave Kansas to the pop party. Topeka Capital. E. V. Debs has a scheme to form all the labor organizations in the country into one gigantic concern with him self at the head. He also wants a new political party to be the Social Demo cratic party. In view of the fact that the half dozen or more democratic parties are hardly on speaking terms, it seems meet and proper that should another one be organized, it make an effort to be a little more sociable and if there is anything in a name, the Social Democratic party ought tp suc ceedjust like the rest have done. The appointment or C'y Leiand to be pension agent at Topeka is meeting with approval from the soldier ele ment of Kansas. Cy Leiand wore the blue for four years, and understands the meaning of the word comrade. Tom anderson had a big petit ion ask ing that he have the place, and any other representative soldier republi can putting forth the same effort could have had as big a one. It is all bosh that any one man lias a cinch on any particular place. Tom Anderson has a job with the Rock Island people and his work shows him to bo emi nently fitted for the place, while the course he has pursued since Leland's appointment shows him to be a very ordinary politlcan. Better stick to your Job with the Rock Jsland.Tom. It has been discovered that when the "Omnibus" bill passed the Senate, repealing a number of sections of the statutes which were supposed to be ob solete, that some sections were repeal ed, which provided for holding the terms of district court In a number of districts and the judges of these districts to know whether to go ahead' or not. Judge Skidnxue of t he Chero kee-Montgomery district has con' eluded he has no right to hold court, and has adjourned. Wonder what else this conglomeration or misfits got mixed upon. The chances are that they should be excused however, for if they tell the truth, they wore kept so busy keeping away from Boyd.lut cher and others of their pop friends who were trying to buy them, that they had little time for the consider atini of business. "Where is that wave of prosperity?" shout the pops. With the same pro priety might be asked, where is that wave of dire calamity that the pops predicted would strike the country a broad-sider if McKinley was elected? One pop is reported to have said dur ing the campaign that if McKinley was elected, ho was going home to shoulder his gun, Another is reported to have said he didn't want to live to see McKinley iuaugcrated president. All over our land and almost on every hand are evidences of prosperity. In dustries are springing up. manufac turing establishments are resuming work and collections are easies. The car of indnstry is pushing ahead. If a chunk of prosperity as big as the pyramids of Egypt was to strike a pop he would still howl calamity because it has become his second nature to howl. He draws his Inspirations from the misfortunes of others, and he stands on the ruins of his fellow man howls calamity till the atmosphere turns blue and the heavens above and the earth below echo his dismal moan.

As years pass and the people be come more and more convinced that boom times are not likely to occur again, they are beginning to look at matters in a more serious manner, and those who are studying the situation are beginning to realize the fact that booms almost always hurt rather thau help the people as a whole. The facts are that booms simply means sudden udward tendencies In prices unt il they reach Imaginary rather thau real val ues. When farm land gets so high in price that the owner's share of the crop will not yield him a fair interest on his Investments, it is too high. One of the troubles with Kansas is the craze of platting too much proper ty adjacent to town into town lots;afew lots will be sold, some cottages erected and a lot of ground that ought to raise a crop be removed from the channels of business and be thrown out as a common and be of no value to anyone. It Is a mistaken idea that a lot of peo ple getting together and forming themselves into a corporation makes a good town; they must have something to do to make a living; when ever so many merchants get into a town as to prevent any of them from making money.there are too many merchants; whenever there are more laboring mon in town than there is work, there are too many laborers. What a town wants is employment for its inhabi tants; it must get some manufactories and not ship its raw materials away. Chanute is all right, but could just as well double its population if there was something for the other 4.000 peo ple to do. Ninety per cent, of all the (lour used in Chanute is shipped in. The wheat from which it is ground Is first shipped out and the consumer pays the freight both ways, besides laboring men at Ottawa, Topeka or Lawrence get a living out of it. Why can't Chanute have a first class grist mill that will grind the flour we use and give the men employment instead of shipping this important' product from other points? The same maybe said of canned fruits; a canning factory could certain ly do well here. I f farmers liad ready sale at a fair price for berries and fruits, more would be raised. The farmer who has a few cows, a few chickens and a few acres of berrie scan live if his corn fails. We need smaller farms and better farming. r Spirit Confesses. 1 W. II. Rehfus, of Kansas City, confessed one clay this week that he had been playing spirit at the senaces for a man named Stewart; when more than one spirit was needed, his wife, or hired girl, or both were called into the game. Many of the Kansas City people, some of 'whom are credited with a fair amount of intelligence, have been duped into contributing money to get a chance to taik to their dearleparted.- .spiritualism nas oeen exposed in all sorts of ways, yet there still seems to be pient7 or people win ing to be duped.
