W""H"I"I"I,,M,H"IM" AfnilT Minneapolis Better Way (Pop.): While the com ftAudAd. nnniM favor lilirh Insur ance rates, they kick like a defeated can didate about high examination rates. Mankato Advocate: The State of ' Kana,s never had a cleaner, better, more faithful and competent set of State offi cers than are to be found In the capltol building at this time. Ilerlngton Times (Rep.): Webb Mc Nall can be credited with being a fighter, if nothing elee. He has won every fight, too, so far, and tieems to be in a fair way to keep on doing so. Newton Republican: Some Republi can papers claim that It Is a shame that Kansas Is represented In the United States Senate by William A. Harris. Kansas has had no better Senator for "years than he, Populist though he may be. . Oskaloosa Times (Pop.): With per fect falrtieau accorded to Superintendent McNall full credit for the good he has done the State in his executive capacity, we would ask in all candor, why does he keep such a notorious character as that man Foote In office as one of his epeclal examiners. Abilene Chronicle (Rep.): After ; awhile Kansas can organize some more insurance companies of her own with a chance of their prospering. The Phoe nix Fir Assurance Company, of Lon don, has notified Superintendent of In surance McNall that It will withdraw from Kansas January 1. The company gave aa its reason that It does not desire to be annoyed by fusses with McNall. Lawrence Jeffersonlan: The Repub- - licana have been howling a great deal about the State treasury being empty and claim that when they were in power there was always plenty of money. Let's eee, who was In power when the Univer sity professors did not receive their sal Boiea for four months? One of the first things Populists did when they came Into power was to pay lour months of back salary to the University people. Mound City Torch of Liberty (Pop.): The Topeka Capital of December 24, in commenting upon members of the State administration, refers to Judge S. II. .Alien, David Heflebower and Superin tendent Stryker as being "thorough going Populists, and what la more to the point, they are giving character to the administration." The Torch fully agrees with this remark. They are men of ability and honesty of purpose, moral, temperate men, and such men command respect and give strength to any party. Ness City News (Rep.): If the move ment to have the State divided into two districts for holding United States courts Is based upon no motive higher than supplying places for Sam Peters and Lit Crum, or any other men, the scheme should be throttled at once. And if there is a necessity for such division, , coupled with the probability that these men are to be the beneficiaries, It would be better that matters remain In statu quo. Too much "machine work" Is neither good for the people nor the party. Topeka Dally Capital (Rep.): Other colleges besides the one in Kansas are preparing to give special courses in dairying and a more practical way of ; Increasing the farmer's profits could not ' be devised. The dairy business has in ; creased at a prodigious rate within the past few years, and it is still, compara tively speaking, in its infancy. Within a few years it will be one of the lead ing features of this western country, ; which has been well favored by nature for the development of this promising industry. Judge Dale (Dem.), of Wichita: I knew Justice Allen before he was elected Associate Justice and believed at that tlmo that he was an able jurist, and, oiace becoming Associate Justice, his opinions have not only confirmed that tUef, but have satisfied the bench and bar of the State that he is eminently .qualified for that position. He Is ac knowledged to be the equal of any Judge who has ever graced the bench of the Supreme court and Is entitled to a renomlnation and re-election, which I have no doubt he will receive. Eureka Union (Pop.): The fellows who want some one set aside that they , or their particular friends may have a place are unworthy of consideration. There is no virtue In any such politics. Tho Union has no sympathy for such fellows, and doo tmt represent any such E"t"l"l'T people. The elements of virtue and commendation In the State administra tion by far outweigh In quantity and importance the few spots which mar the work done. The Union only desires to remove the spots in order that the good work may shine the more brilliantly and thua leave the opposition nothing to do but sit and see the procession march on to victory. Medicine Lodge Index (Pop.): The Populist State nominating convention is quite a little distance ahead, but it would be a wise act if Populists would keep themselves posted during the in terim. There is one man, especially, on whom a bitter fight is being made by the corporations, and that man is Wm. Stryker, Superintendent of Public In struction. If it is In the power of the American Book Company, Prok Stryker will be defeated next year, either in the convention or at the polls. Stryker .as made a gallant and winning fight againet this trust and the people have felt the beneficial effects. To defeat him now would be Inviting plunder and dis couraging honesty. Newton Republican (Rep.) : There is a good deal of talk about the new fees and salary bill just at present. There is much condemnation and a good deal of walling and gnashing of teeth. In spite of all the bill is a good one one of the few good ones passed last winter. While if may work an injustice to the western Kansas county officials, yet in a measure they are provided for, and the harm is more than atoned for in the fact that the enormous salaries and fees some officials in eastern Kansas have been receiving are abolished. The sur plus, of course, reverts to the taxpayer, and directly benefits him. As a matter of fact, there will be few genuine kicks against the law, and it win prove highly benefloial to Kansas. Kirwln Independent (Pop.): Many Populist papers are coming out for Gov-, ernor Leedy for a second term. We cannot oppose the re-election of our Governor. While he may have made mistakes in some of his appointments, his courageous efforts to do all he can toward enforcing laws (good laws, too) passed by the Legislature elected by the same voters that elected him, stamps him as a man who Is not afraid to carry out the wishes of the people. His veto of the railroad bill, some say, is an effort to thwart the wishes of the people, but every true Populist understands that that was not the measure demanded in the State platform, and discussed in the campaign. Leedy and the rest of the State officers should be renominated and elected. Lawrence Jeffersonlan: When the last Legislature scaled down the sala ries of the professors of the University, dire calamities were predicted by the g. o. p. press and store box politicians, and it was heralded throughout the land that the institution would be ruined, that all the professors would leave. We have made diligent search and have been unable to learn of a single man who has left. One man has left, but his sal ary stopped, and he was not patriotic enough to work longer without pay. That is the only change of any kind made In the faculty. The facts are that they can't pick up life tenure jobs, and they know it By the way, what impor tant job is that one Geo. T. Falrchlld, late of the Agricultural college, holds? Where is that promised $5,000 job? im Minneapolis Better Way pcm tdm (Pop): The 'human os UcNtKAL. trlch" might test the in fallibility of his powers by trying to swallow a prosperity Item. The American (Wharton Barker's pa per): And now abideth avarice, an archy, apathy, these three evils; but the greatest of these is apathy. Paola Times: The greatest obstacle, in the way of a anion of all the anti gold standard forces is the personal am bitions and partisan prejudice of would be leaders. Mlsouri World (Pop.): The people should own the railroads and the Peo ple's party is the only national organi zation which proposes to bring about this condition of affairs. Emporia Republican: Wouldn't the proposed rural delivery system be rather a snap for the footpads? If they caught a carrier out on a country road they wouldn't do & thing to him. Olatho Tribune: The United States Sratfr who, In a fla flaw of language. 'li lie woman who uses? mmm ; waoning rowaer finishes her work as fresh and bright as 8 her house is clean. Largest Dackage greatest economy. 8 The N. K. Fairbank Company, l Chicago. St. Louis. New York. Boston. Philadelphia. V. tl T 1 I :.x. a . b J-.

Missouri World (Pop.): If sliver is to be paid out again when It is re deemed in gold, as provided by the plu tocrats' monetary commission's bill, then there will be another so-called endless chain created. The bill is si lent as to whether silver Is to be paid out when redeemed in gold. Charles Kurtz (leader of the oppo sition to Hanna): I am opposed to the election of Mr. Hanna to the Senate for the same reason that I opposed the election of Calvin S. Brlce and Henry B. Payne to the Senate by the Demo crats. When a party takes up such men, whose Interests and sympathy are all with monopoly and aristocracy, it can not long expect to retain the respect and support of the plain people, who do the voting. If the Republican party insists on putting Hanna to the front as the best representative of the thought and ability of the party, it will be at tacked by the same blight that fell upon the Democratic party In this State after It had sent Payne and Brlce to the Sen ate. Who is this man, Hanna? He has no special ability. He is neither wise, sagacious nor courageous. He has got half of his party scared to death. They Imagine him a man of great force of character. The fact is that he Is largely "blow." In the campaign two years ago, when I was State chairman, the free sliver fellows had Wm scared out of his wits, and he sent to me twice an order to change the base of the fight from the money question to the tariff. Now Mr. Hanna wants to pose as the general who managed the great fight for sound money. , When he is defeated many of the Republicans who are now cheering his name will Join In repudiat ing him. Hanna cannot be elected. Detroit Tribune (Rep.): The quality of the administration's mercy may not be strained, but it Is tolerably thin withal. Within nine months President McKinley has pardoned thirteen bank wreckers and embezzlers. In fact, he is turning them loose more rapidly than the courts can order their Incarceration, and if the pace is maintained there won't be a bank wrecker behind the bars at the close of Mr. McKInley's first term. Even newspapers that are in every way friendly to the President have begun to denounce his activity in pardoning bank thieves as a national scandal; but Mr. McKinley shows no disposition to discontinue the practice. Just why Pres ident McKinley should have any especial sympathy for bank wreckers is one of the national mysteries. No class of criminals is more dangerous to tho wel fare of society. In most cases the .ef fect of their crime Is far-reaching and the consequences most disastrous. A bank official occupies a peculiarly iso lated position in respect to general con fidence. He is the recipient of an un usual trust, and when he Is false to that trust the punishment should fit the crime, -as Mr. Gilbert would sing. This is usually Just what does not happen. His position in society modifies his sen tence, and when executive clemency is added to this it Is not strange that bo many bank officials go wrong. Indeed, Mr. McKinley Is engaged In showing the country that honesty in banking is a sheer waste of opportunities and should be discouraged.
