FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1899.
The legislature is ended. 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

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.

How do you Pops like to have 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
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.

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

to get value received and that every

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.

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.
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.
