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
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
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
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
is the sort of plan to risk and be
guided by. That policy has been
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.

The Rinding Brother big show for the season
of 1S97, which comes to Chanute. Monday Oct.
25, is In all probability the biggest thing of ti e
kind that has ever traveled. The newspapers
of Chicogo, where the big show has given over
100 performances, and the papers of other large
cities, pronounce it the one big show of the uni
verse . Hie Kingling tiros, nave this year to
make their vicit to each community positively
irresistible to the thousands adder a free, open

place as a grand processional street demonstra

the conventional street parade still a feature
with other shows. In discarding the old-time
circus pageant and substituting this big new
parade the Mingling Mi-others introduce some
thing entirely new, novel and worthy of public
interest. It is presented in 30enormous sections
or sub-divisions, each one of which would easily
outclass the muni circus parade, and combined

eringly grand scanes, more than three times
