It has accomplished the least, beyond mak ing extravagant appropriations, of any body that ever assembled. The people will be ready for another change in 1900. The "Hon. James Lawrence" now has his ambition gratified. He has served one term in the legislature and what has he accomplished ex cept t) give Andy Richards and Misi Cora Dilley a temporary job? This is calculated to yielu a fund of $150,000 per year. Add to (hat the increased corporation and charier tees which the secretary of state will collect under another extra ses sion enactment, and then add all of these together, and the reader will have an adequate idea of the way the new "business administration" is running things. Senator Hessin (Rep) says this leg- posal. lslature is a "legislature of small things." We see they are after the small things. Gov. Stanley has ap pointed two guards to watch the The Issue.

How do you Pops like to have the salaries of your county officers in creased 50? Who made the de mands for th"s raise? Was it the people? Did patriots refuse to come to the feast at the last County Con ventions and did you have to go out into the highways and force the people to feed at the public crib? William Jennings Bryan passed south on the Santa Fe through Wich ita and Winfield Monday on his way to Austin, Tex., where he addressed the legislature. To a reporter at Guthrie; Oklahoma, he said: "I will be in the next national Demo cratic convention and I will espouse the cause of bimetallism to the exclusion of all else. The people's issue can not be sidetracked." It is claimed that thousands of dollars of the state's money has been worse than wasted in the de struction of property and from other sources in the present inefficient man agement of the Topeka insane asylum. The same may be said of some of the other charitable institutions. It is to be hoped the next Populist ad ministration will put men of honor and ability in charge of affairs in stead of pigmies and political parasites. One of the bills that ought to have become a law in this legislature was the telephone measure introduced by Judge Babb of Wichita. It pro vided for county telephone systems. In Illinois where the system is flou ishing it is proving a great success. Telephones only cost 50 cents a month. Many farmers use them. Because of being far more extensive the service is vastly better, and the brlns cost much less than at paesent. The people might have these benefits if they would only insist on them. found necessary to increase state tax levy from 4.4 mills to 5 tinother big item. By the terms I law passed by the Populists at the extra session the insurance corn- Great Britain hs concluded to embark in the telephone bus.ness on her own hook. The announcement was made by the financial secretary of the treasury, Mr.R.W.Hanbury, in the house of commons that the government has decided to intro duce competition in the telephone service of the country. He asked for a credit of $10,000,000 as a starter to enable the postoffice de partment to develop the telephonic communication of London. The house ultimately adopted a resolu tion embodying Mr. Hanbury's pro- idea of education. They believe the young ought to be taught by the men who are willing to teach that natron caintc nf Amor!.-. TM Tt,. r,, t.i. 1 v' i.icy '." u U ; C know that when men like Rockefel- ler and Armour who have m) their millions out of trusts contribute to educational institutions they expect to get value received and that every dollar spent as a donation to educa tion by these men is really so much contributed to teach and weld the brightest boys and girls to the grand old corporation trust party. They appreciate the fact that there is little danger of a young man who is taught to worship money who is taught that money not men are the blessing to the state, that money is king and the corporations can do no wrong that there is little dan ger of a young man, so taught be coming a Populist. On the other hand the Populists fully realize that if the truth is to be clearly and fully put before the bright, inquiring minds of ihe young men and women of today it must be done at the expense of the people. that the people cannot trust the disciples of Mammon to fairly in form the youth of today. The Pop- u'ist believes in having institutions where every phase of economic life can be discussed. Where a spade can be called a spade. Where the man who steals millions will be con demned as freely as the man who steals dollars. The people must keep the education of these chidren in their own hands. They cannot delegate this task to the corpora tion barons without becoming serfs. Our Greatest Clubbing Offer. Our farmer readers ihnnM nnt. Wellington people will remember an apparently sad case of destitution in this city a little ever a year ago. A man and wife acd two or three children stopped in ti e street in front I of the Baptist church one afternoon. m... i.nc man was puslilDg a handcart containing all their earthly posses sions. The woman wheeled her youngest babe in an old dilapidated baSy carriage. The other children rode on top of a bundle of quilts in the handcart. They said they were on their way to their kin at Wichita, going from Oklahoma, where they had been burned out and starved out Sympathizing women brought them oreaa ana meat, and a purse was made up and they were sent to Wich ita on the train and given several dollars pocket mouey. Later they were heard of west of here, traveling through the country and begging. They turned up the other day in Win held, and their story of hard luck excited so much sympathy thatallthe benevolent women in the town turned out with pies, and cakes, and old clothes, and medicine. They have found the Wintteld people so easy that they have gone to housekeeping there. From an Old Friend. Editok Voice: A few words from this place may be of interest to some o' your many readers.
