For Register of Deads J. N. CUTLER For County Coroner R. C. CRANDON For County Surveyor W. C. WILLIAMS For Commissioner, 2nd District T. B. LIMBOCKER. One week from next Tuesday oc curs the regular fall election. Don't forget that the cross is made at the right instead of the left of the name of the person for whom you want to vote. The republican ticket is made up of good men who will make good officers men who secured the nom ination of their party fairly and squarely and you cannot afford to vote against them. If you are a re publican you will vote the republi can ticket. The city council meet in execu tive session Monday night. No one knows just what they did, but it is generally understood that the joint question was discussed, at any rate a number of alleged jointists seemed to be out of a job Monday and it is fair to presume they got a shaking up. There is certainly plenty of work for all who want work and there is no excuse for a fellow to run a dive because he is out of em ployment and can get nothing else to do. the invariable one with the opposit ion in Wilson county when cons cious of a miniority relation. But republicans have never profited in this county by such a resort. Mean while populist leaders are making speeches for no other purpose than to sustain their party and hold its voters in line." The Fredonia Citizen, in report ing the pop pow-wow at Benedict last week, has the following to say of the congressman from this dis district; "Ridgely is wild, vision ary, illiterate and illogical and his usefulness in Washington to the peo ple of the Third Congressional Dis trict must be very small indeed. Contrasted with Bishop W. Perkins, or his republican predecessor, he becomes like an intellectual pigmy. He is a fit example of the decline to the present level from the former high standard of Kansas representa tives at Washington, resulting from the ascendency to power of the pop ulist party." City Marshal Gilchrist has been subjected to considerable criticism of late and more especially -since the killing of Berry. No one doubts but Mr. Gilchrist is trying to do his duty in his way but they criticise the way. Many claim that when he makes arrests or attempts to do so, he takes too great chances and gets pounded up more than the other fel low. Policemen in cities carry short heavy clubs and if a fellow shows fight, they tap him and make him "be good." Whanever a city marshal gets the reputation of using his club freely, the lawbreakers are the first to know it and lay down much easier, on the contrary, if a police officer gets the name of show ing the white feather or being too chicken-hearted to use his club, he gets imposed on. The thing for Marshal Gilchrist to do is to use his club more. Mr. Gilchrist was elect ed by the law-respecting citizens of Chanute and they will stand by him as long as he is right. The following from the Fredonia Citizen might well be applied to this county: "In most of the counties of the state the republicans are making an active organized cam paign holding public meetings, ad dressing the people and proceeding in a systematic way to gain support for the party ticket in its entirety. This course is not being pursued in Wilson county so far as can be learned. To the contrary, it has been suggested by some of those di rectly interested in the result that if republicans speeches should be made some voters might be offended at the truth and that a still hunt, bush whacking, every-fellow-for-himself is the sort of plan to risk and be guided by. That policy has been Treasury Empty. For the first time in the history of Kansas the state treasury is emp ty and the state is paying 6 per cent interest oij its obligations. Wonder if the pops will issue bonds to pay the running expenses of the state? What has become of all the finan ciers of the party? Why don't they get up some resolutionsr now about "percapiter?" Our friends who seem to be long on schemes seem to be short on business. They made a great big old talk about how they were going to lower the running expenses of the state ana now they are, as usual, unable to make both ends meet and that too when prosperity is seen and admitt ed on every hand; when taxes in Kansas have been collected closer than in any year since the state was admitted into the union. Where does the economical administration come in? Here we have a party that wants to run the government and yet it can't run one state, not even Kansas, where we have money to burn and banks are refusing to take more deposits. Gaies Durg.
