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
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.

There is a
with som3 people that honesty
and business are two widely different things.
But a true business principle cannot exist with
out honest value. There is no better example
to be given than the B. K. &. Co.

quality and honest workmanship.
We do not hesitate to guarantee
such suits, and the prices are reasonable too.
