: Taola Times (Pop.): Thwe who
raise 4-cent cotton and pay the increased
price on woolen goods will hardly ap
preciate the glory of the tariff.
Kansas City Times (Dem.): The Ding
ley tariff is HtiJl producing less reven.ie
than the Wilson tariff produced at ny
time. It la a grotesque failure, and
ought to bo promptly repealed.

difference. Congress convenpd yeste:

Wichita Beacon (Dem.i: McKlnky
says the appropriations must be cut
$50,000,000. Why didn't he think o
that when he rescinded the order cor.
solidating pension offices? Ho mlqht
have saved $4,500 which Cy Leland js
spending with so much pleasure.
'New Orleans Times-Democrat: If
Congress provides for a system of posta!
savings banks at the coming session of
Congress it wlh benefit the whole coun
try, ibut no part of it more than the
South, "where savings banks or any othOi
institutions in which savings can be de
posited are few. The South, therefore,
is most deeply interested in the passage
of this bill.
Kanaas City Tribune (Rep.): Senatir
Morgan, in his Chase County Leader,
insists that Seth Low hasn't any rigl.r.
to pose as a Republican while trying to
inject a little decency into New Yont
politics. We think differently decency
is the first principle of Republicanism.
The trouble in New York is that a wholo
lot of fellows without any political prin
ciple have borrowed the livery of Re
publicanism as a cloak for public plv.n
dorlng. Harper's Weekly: The New York and
Brooklyn Aldermen are going out f
office at the end of the year. Realizing
J.at what they steal or sell of the city's
property and rights they must lay hold
of quickly they are Illustrating what
Tammany politicians can do when they
obey all the wild impulses of their na
tures. A Tammany railway crowd huu
been presented with railway franchhoa
in the borough of Brooklyn which are
estimated to be worth at least $7,000,000.
Ia the old city of New York the Aldo
men have voted to permit another Tam
many crowd to tear up for a trolhy
road a beautiful park highway just com
pleted toy -the Park Commissioners at
a large cost. Not only will the road b3
ruined, but Pelham Bay park will !?
greatly injured. But what do Tammany
Aldermen care for the beauties of na
ture ot the rights of the public wh i
these trumpery things stand In the wajr
of their trade? They are not in pon
tics for "their health." They are there
for "what there Is In it for them." A
Tammany Alderman who does not make
enough money out of his political careei
to enable him to establish a "dive" or
bar room is not worthy of Croker's lead
ership. But the important thing is that
New York is getting Its first taste of
what Croker has in store for it.
BOYLE'S Neodesha Dally Regis-
VirTORY ter ReP-: ReaIly th3
vuiuni. iargest and best man i?i
tho present State administration Is the
Hon. Mr. Boyle. He is a man who
brings thing to pass, and that Is the
kind of a fellow we admire, whether
he la on our side or not.
WaKeeney Independent: Attorney
General Boyle has scored another vic
tory for the laborers in Kansas in hay
ing the screen and scrip laws of the
. Fort Scott Lantern (Pop.): Our At
torney General In his presentation of
this case added another sparkling gem
to his rapidly growing fame as a suc
cessful combatant of the encroachments
of corporate greed and oppression that
. has assumed gigantic proportions under
Repulican misrule in this country.
Lyons Eagle (Pop.): Attorney Gen
eral Boyle as scored another victory
for Pop legislators in the Pop scrip
aitd screen laws. Judge Simons has de
cide that they are constitutional and
that hereafter coal companies must p.y
their help in money instead of scrip,
and screen their coal as the law direct.
Good for the Pops. Attorney Gener.il
Boyle is a daisy. He is fairly earning
the title of "The First Attorney General
Pittsburg Kansan (Pop.): Due credit
should be given to Attorney General
Boyle for this new proof of his devo
tion to the cause of the people. He has
proven himself an Indefatigable worker
and his success In this case (tho scrip
and screen) Is but another proof of the
aoundnewH of his Judgment on pure'y
legal and technical issues.
Kansiis City Tribune (Rep.): In his
determination to sue on all default
"oonds held by the State School Fund
Commission, Attorney General Boylo
will bo supported without regard '..:
party. That fund, tho most sacred iu
the treasury, has been badly Imposed
upon, and everyone Is Interested in
having the worthies securities sifted
El Dorado Advocate (Pop.) : Attorney
General Louis C. Boyle has proven be
yond peradventure that he was, of all
other able Kansas Populist lawyers, the
right man for Attorney General when
the new Populist laws were to be con
tested In the courts. He is ever active,
abundantly able, brilliant, and ns loyal
a friend to the reform cause as Kansd3
soil has produced. Mr. Boyle Is not
thirty years old, but his romar.'iable
ability, his undaunted courage nud ac
tive mind have caused "older head3"
to seek political seclusion. He undoubt
ed! has a bright future befyra him.
Kansas City Star (Ind.):' Attorney
General Boyle, of Kansas, has won an
other victory in the courts, In his de
fense of the laws passed by the last Leg
islature. District Judge Slmoas, at Fort
Scott, Saturday, decided that tho acts
regulating the coal mining lndus:ry are
constitutional, and may be enforced.
Attorney General Boyle has done a tre
mendous amcunt of hard work In press
ing suits for the enforcement of laws
passed by the Kansas Legislature, and
objected to by corporations, and he ias
gained the respect and the admiration
pf a great many people who are not in
sympathy with the party to which he
belongs. He is a very important mem
ber of the present Kansas administration.
Neodesha Sun: Another
I..L.Mnn nnnnnittlnn mil
held recently, at Law
rence, but although . well enough at
tended and well enough conducted, prac
tical irrigation in Kansas Is about us
far off as when the subject was first
made a theme for discussion in Kansas
newspapers. Land will have to be
brought to a much higher state of cul
tivation where it does rain before peo
ple can afford to Irrigate the arid re
gions at a great expense.
Downs Times (Rep.): The good of
the Republican party of Kansas demands
Inland's overthrow as the boss.
Minneapolis Better Way: The In
surance companies find that it makes
lots of difference who is commissioner
Newton Republican: Objection to the
useless State Board of Pardons is heard
on every hand now. A little agitation
will remove it.
Burlington Courier: H. B. Fleharty
will not be a candidate for CongreM in
ihe Fourth district against John Mad
den. Mr. Fleharty displays good sense
in restraining himself from reaching
after the unattainable.
Kansas City (Kas.) Gazette: Ar
rangements have been made toy which
tho manufacture of linen mesh under
wear from Oregon grown flax la to be
undertaken by European capital. But
flax can be raised in Kansas as well rs
in Oregon, and here is a better, place for
it than Portland.
Cottonwood Falls Reveille (Pop.):
There may be some who want an extra
session of the Legislature called, but
in our opinion, for all the good they
would do. the members may as well re
main nt home. There are entirely too
many "quacks" sent to the Legislature
for good and efficient legislation.
El Dorado Advocate: When speakiag
of "timber" for State nominations John
W. Breidenthal is one of the other peb
bles on the political beach, that some.
In their haste, have forgotten, who may
as well be remembered. As for that,
John Breidenthal is able enough, de
serving enough and popular enough to
be honored with any nomination the
People's party have in their power to
give him. So mote it be.
Clay Centor Times (Rep.): There is
a man (F. D. Coburn) who unites nearly
every good quality of every other man
named for Governor, with many dis
tinctively his own. His nomination
would harmonize Wyandotte county, he
Is neither lawyer or banker, but a plain
business man who has done Immense
service for the farming and stock in
dustry of the State. Farmers would like
him and truit him, no man would own
him, his party fealty Is above question,
ho is all right In every respect.
Howard Citizen (Pop.): The Popu
lists of Kansas admire the spirited fight
Webb McNal! has put tip against in
surance wrongs, but are surprised and
dlflgUHted that he should appoint such
men as Judge Foote and McCray as his
asFisUints. Both have bad reputations.
McCray Is the man whom the Republi
cans ent to Cowley county a few years
Rgo to try to corrupt the officials to
change the vote of that county from iw
People's party to the Republican col
umn, after the vote had been cast but
before It had been canvassed. There
arc plenty of good, clean, capable men
in the People's party without placing
in Important positions such men as Mc
Cray, Foote, "Brown of Kingman," Lew
elllng and Fleharty.
Newton Republican: Kansas is learn
ing every day about undeveloped Indus
tries. There is the creamery business.
It has not been very long since Kansas
did not know anything about the value
of that industry, and now It Is worth
millions to the State. There Is poultry,
too. Every well-regulated farm has a
batch of hens and they are laying eggs
by the countless millions. The cow and
the hen are two very valuable Indus
tries, and are being developed all the
time. Then there could be another
thing which would help out celery
farming. Vice President Paul Morton,
of the Santa Fe, says that there is no
better country on earth for celery farm
ing than the Arkansas valley. Thera
are several things yet that will be dis
covered to make Kansas great. It Is
the best State now, in the Union it may
become one of the very wealthiest.
PRFmPNT'S Howard Citizen (Pop.):
Mccepc The message will be a d.s
rotWAUt. appointment to all who
expected anything better of the Presi
dent than would naturally be expected
to come from the head of a great gov
ernment of corporations.
"Hutchinson Herald (Rep.): If, as we
all said, a year ago, we have the best
money in the world, what is the use of
changing our system?
Lakln Indic (Dem.): He has backed
down on Cuba, and gone directly con
trary to the ptetform on which he was
elected. On all other matters he is tame
Norton Champion (silver Rep.): The
President's message is clogged with the
weeds of currency reform and bouquot
for Cuba. Thought we had the best cur
rency on earth.
Nickerson Argosy (Rep.): The Pres
ident's message to Congress is long on
good common sense and terse state
ments of facts, and short on platitudes
and meaningless phrases.
Nevada (Mo.) Director (Pop.): Pres
ident McKlnley refuses to say a word
for poor, bleeding Cuba, but he has
much to say about making our money
subserve the interests of plutocracy.
Hutchinson Gazette (Pop.): The Pres
ident seems to be devising means, not
how to make two blades of grass grow
where one grows now, but how to make?
two millionaires grow where one grows
now, or how to make a millionaire Into
Hutchinson Bee (silver Rep.): When
the President, at the behest of the bank
parly, attacks that form of money and
pronounces It dangerous, they know he
has departed from Lincoln Republican
ism and joined the party of deceit and
treachery the party of mammon.
Lyons Eage (Rep.): After reading the
President's message, one wonders why
ho did not favor redeeming the postage
stamps in gold and retiring them, as
well as the greenbacks. There is ju.it
an much sense and just as much pat
riotism in the one as in the other.
Down Times (Rep.): It is throughout
patriotic and instructive. With the ex
ception of the recommendation conced
ing Hawaii, we look upon it as being
crowded with advice which should re
ceive favorable consideration by those
who are commissioned to administer the
affairs of government.
Anthony Bulletin (Pop.): The Presi
dent's message indicates that the Re
publicans are going Into one of the wild
eyed schemes of the Populists, and that
the general government may become the
owner by purchase of the Kansas Pacific
railroad. The position of the President,
is, we believe, a correct one, and the
Interests of the government should be

The Duplex lias double speed and
double durability. It has a double
alphabet; one for the left hand and
one for the right; and two points of
contact for type and paper. The
operator can print any two letters at
the same instant, and do it as quickly
as one letter can be printed on any
other machine. Yet the Duplex is
no larger than other typewriters, is
as easily portable as any other stand
ard machine, and its key-board is
very easily learned. Its points of
superiority are :
The Production of Perfect Work.
Capacity for the Highest Speed.
Excellence of Material and Superior'
Is Eminently Practical.
Bead the Following Testimonial:
I have had a Duplex lu constant use for the
last two years and It has given great satisfac
tion. Tho alignment is still perfoct, as is its
work In every way, and it shows hardly any
traces of wear.
I first heard of the machine through an oper
ator of this city who told me that a young lady
operator at the World's Fair wrote an average
of li words per minute to his dictation for
twenty minutes. He was very enthusiastic in
praise of the machine, and on his recommen
dation I bought one. I found It very easy to
learn, and Its speed and the elegance of its
work are the admiration of all who have seen
It. I have seen nearly all the writing machines
on the market and have operated the principal
ones, and think tho Duplex by far the best In
every way. Its double key-board makes it
aoout twice as fast as the ordinary machine,
and I hope to soon take take the lead as It so
well dese'rves. It Is difficult to see how any
one, once having operated the Duplex, could
ever go back to one of the slow and cumbrous
old-style machines. It has points of excel
lence not possessed by other machines, espe
cially its double features and the device for
shading letters. JOHN II. HOOD,
