We will aim to follow the lines laid down by its former editor, politically, and will try to maintain the standing it has with the public as the- most reliable publication in the county. To our advertisers, we wish to say that our subscription books are always open for Inspection.

The News has'nt made a favorable mentiou of a single legislatorlsince the republican caucus nominated Hudson for printer. Frank Fobest, formerly with the Topeka Advocate, and known as the boy orator of Kansas. Is now shoving the quill of the Concordia Alliant. Here's our band Frank, and hope that you may make the Alliant the second best paper in the state. J. H. Fountain retires from the office of county commiBioner with knowledge in his heart that he has done his duty. No other just path is open to Mr. McElwain. The Ga zette hopes to see him keep clear from entangling alliances, and always vote "no" on any question that is tor tne pushing of any scheme where priv individuals are to be benefited at the cost of the tax-payers. ' We take pleasure in calling special attention of our readers to the ad of Mr. Bail, found in another column. It would be presumption upon our part to say anything by way of introducing Mr. Raff, as his coining to this city anti-dates ours by many years. He is indeed one of the old land marks of the city. We hope that our renders and friends will appreciate the patron age Mr. Raff is giving the Gazette. and show that appreciation by giymp him a share of their patronage. It goes without saying that a man of his experience can always supply his cus tomers with the beat goods at living price. Til EX as a sow. On October 8, 1S92, W. K. Noland. in a speech before a crowd of honest men and women at Hon. Wm. Mitch ell's grove, said: "I am your candidate for county commissioner. If I am elected and do not do my duty, I want you to put a rope around my neck and hang me hang me like a dog." Last Monday, at the meeting of the board of county commissioners, a mo tion was made by Fleming that the - Hutchinson News be made the official organ and that full rates be allowed on the tax lists and seventy-rive per cent be allowed on all other legal work. Mr. McElwain, the new member fresh from the (people, knowing that his constituents, without regard to politics, were in favor of economy, offered an amendment to give the work to the lowest bidder. On the amendment. Fleming and Noland voted "no;" and, although there were bids that would have saved the county $500, they received no consideration; the proposition . of the Gazette was sealed and placed on the commis sioners' table, yet it was allowed to re main untouched. Mr. Noland has forever closed every avenue that was open toward regaining the confidence of the tax payers of Reno county. SEWS BY FREIGHT. Some weeks ago, the people who read the daily papers, were told that the county elections in Georgia all showed democratic gains, and that the "pops" were aead In thtt state. We have grown to regard everything appearing in associated press as a lie, unHl proven otherwise, especially any political bear! r, ml we did not men tion u.e uiutt jr. Under the heal, "Be of GooJ Cheer," the Hon. Tom Watson's pa per, published t A'Janta, says: "lhe popuiis g of Creoraia have no cause to be discouraged. "in the January elections they ad ded handsomely to the amount of county machinery which wa pos sessed ana we lost no county we.ai reudy held. "So secure were most of those coun ties where the people's party already held the oilices that the democrats made no contests. In considerable numbers they even went so far as to vote our ticket, thus complimenting toe honesty, fairness and capacity or the noDuiist ouicers. "We have added to our list the great middle-Georgia county of Washington, which we were never able to win be fore, in the January elections. "We carried Wilkinson also which we have never done before. "Ia these two counties our brave and tireless lccal leaders deserve the thanks of the whole party for the splendid vic tories they have won. "We failed to carry Jefferson just as we have always failed heretofore in the January elections. "How the democrats kept it, It is not necessary to state. Same old game It will end some day. People are not always going to be patiently swindled Dv insolent trtcKsters. We carried Greene county. White Coffee, Cheroket, Laurens and several others, besides capturing part of the offices in manv more. 'Democrats did all the losing, solar as countv control is concerned. " Jfivery county captured adds a fort ress to our strength lor we never afterwards lose it." IX JAIL. Eugene V. Debs and the six other officers of the American Railway Union began serving their time in the Woodstock, 111., county jail last Thurs day. The boys are all supplied with plenty of reading matter. Mr. Debs is a particular friend of James Whitcomb Riley, and has com muted to memory everything that that poet has ever published. We predict that the name of Eugene V. Debs will be sung by unborn gen erations, as is all the men who ever made a fight for a principle, and, Instead of putting a stop to further labor agitation, his imprisonment will serve more to amalgamate all wealth producers into one order than a thous-( and manifestos. THE STATE FKINTEB. The republican members of the two houses decided last Thursday evening to make J. K. Hudson of the Topeka Capital, state printer. In doing this, they are consistent with the policy of the national republican party, but not with the western wing of the party, as the JCapital is about the only paper In the state that Is standing shoulder to shoulder with leading eastern pa pers on the financial question, Joe is a gold-bug of the yellowest stripe.

Tho people's party can contentedly await thu impartial verdict of history. Ottawa Journal. With this issue closes our work with the Gazette is the announcement of Warren Foster, for the past live years editor of that paper. As we announced some two weeks hgo, Mr. Foster has taken an interest in the inter-Moun-tain Advocate, Salt Lake City, Utah, and The Clipper wishes him success and prosperity in hia new venture. Mr. Foster's interest in the Gazette has been purchased by Lee A, Hutton, who has been an employee in that otlice for the past three years, and is well and favorably known to most of our citizens. Clipper. Suppose a man invents a machine that does the work of a thousand men. Who ought to get the benefit, the in ventor, the capitalist who furnishes the funds to manufacture the machine, or the thousand men who are thrown out of employment? Or, how should the benetits.be divided? These are questions that open up the whole econ omic field .If the Increase of wealth Is the supreme object, then the proper thing to do is to allow capital all the savings the machine permits, and let the thousand men go bang or starve as quickly as possible. It is cheaper to keep the machine than the thousand men in working condition, so the ma chine should take their place, and they should look out for theuiselxes. lint if human souls are of more account than iron and steel, or any kind of mechan ism, then there must be some different solution of the problem.
