are resorted to the most shameful
misrepresentations about the relative
expenses of the Winans. and Kich ad

endeavoring to convince the people
that the present Republican adminis
tration of the state has been criminally
extravagant in expenditures and has
exceeded all former acituicbtrationi- iu
the lavish outlay of the p. onle" money.
The Democrats have ju.L issued tv
"Campaign handbook, 1V.M," tilled full
of misrepresentations well calculated
to cheat the honest voter out of his
vote. They present lor his considera
tion the following array of figures;
State taxes levied during W'uunV
term ?2.Stn.0.t 22
State luxes levied during Rich's
term 3.C20.ajO M
Excess of Rich's administration. $ T5T."'J'J
The tirst of these sums is correct
and so is the second. Jut the conclu
sion is false. It may seem an anomaly
that from two truths a falsehood may
be deduced, but it is no novelty in
Democratic campaign reasoning. The
fallacy here consists in a half-truth,
which is well known to be worse than
a lie, especially in Democratic mouths.
The Democratic 'handbook" keeps
out of sight the fact that, in addition
to the taxes levied during Winans'
term, the Republicans turned over
S003,1.".7') and got back only SU",
STS.SS. a difference of s:.'."7,0 in., w hich
was all spent and must be charged tip
to the Winans' administration. The
book also ignores the fact that the
Democrats received from the. United
States the sum of i,.,0,-u.'..(,t;,' which
must also be charged to them. Here
is a discrepancy in the Democratic
showing of s'iTj,Mi'.',.i i. This, added to
the taxes raised during Winans' term,
show the cost of his administration to
be "n, :..-;;.:;.
The Republican administration, on
the contrary, is entitled to a large de
duction from the taxes levied during
Rich's term, in estimating the cost of
his administration. The sum of lU.',
A!,', was raised for repairs, improve
ments and new buildings, made neces
sary by Democratic neglect. This is
no part of the cost of running the
state government. When this deduc
tion is made, it shows that the Rich
administration cost the people only
Svi.'JlT.'.'.'T.riS. tr s !'..', 'i'.'O. Is less than
Winans' admist .rat ion.
The Democrat ie "handbook,'' by tell
ing only part of the truth, is exp.-cted
to deceive the people into repudiating
the best and mot economical state
government they ever hail.
This "handbook" pretends to be a
statement of the cost of -u nning the
state government under the two ad
ministrations, and yet that it is an
imperfect statement, intended only to
deceive, is apparent from a comparison
of on j pait of the book with another.

in the Democratic siutemcnt of s '.. 1'., -jii'i'1
to he accounted for. Kvcn if
the tli -bursetnent of the educational
funds, arising under constitutional
provisions from the collection of spe
cific taxes, is charged up to the Rich
administration, the dis. repincy is by
no means removed. The total amount
of speeilie taxes collected during the
lat two ti-cal years is s.'.'.'s I. i'i.V.i. t)0.

"handbook'- charj.es the Rich adminis
tration with disburing.
N1 hing better shows the dishonesty
of Democratic campaign work more
than thi - one laid. In the lirst place
the "handbook" exaggerates the total
of disbursements far beyond what it
can possibly be and then includes iu
the db biirsenients for running the
state government the disbursement of
the educational fund-, which are in
no way connected with the running of
the state government A moment's
rellcction shows t he dishonesty of such
a charge against the Rich administra
tion. The specific taxes are turned
into the primary school fund by the
express provisions of the constitution
sunl are expended for educational pur
po:-e- alone. The receipt arid expendi
ture of specific taxes, being thus ex
pressly dictated by the constitution, is
not alVected by change of administra
tion, but remains the same. The
ftresent administration merely col
ected and expended for educatioria.
purposes just what the constitution
anil laws require. If a faithful ob
servance of the constitution and the
laws is an offense in the eyes
of the Democracy, then the Republican
administration pleads guilty. Hut the
receipt. :md disbursement of specific
taxes has nothing whatever to do with
the expense of running the state gov
ernment. The only purpose of allud
ing to the disbnt semciit. of them by
the "handbook" was to create the im-pre-shin
that the ' present adiniriist ra
tion is squandering huge sums of the
people's money.
One of the most amusing instances of
the capieity of the average Democratic
campaign writer to juggle with figure
was found in the "handbook'' as it
was lirst published. It contained the
f-tartling assertion that tho legislature,
of ls.i appropriated l.x''..oo').no().
That is more than all the legislature,

One of the most important duties of
the commissioner of the state laud
otlice is to look after the trespassers on
state lands. There is a constant temp
tation to dishonest lumber anil timber
operators to make raids on the rich
fields of operations owned by the state,
and the keenest vigilance is necessary
to protect the people from being robbed
by this class of operators. It may bo
interesting to the people to know how
much better their interests, have been
watched by the present administration
than they were by the Democratic ad
ministration. The following table

were so zealous in their attempt to

surplus left by the Republicans, that
they tl id not hesitate to extort money
from persons who w'ero found cutting

Among the important acts of the
legislature of ls'.i the amendment of
the franchise fee law must not be over
looked. The legislature of lS'Jl, on the
recommendation ef tlov. Luce in his
retiring message, passed an act to re
juirc all corporations Ming articles of
hicorporation in tho state department
to pay a certain percentage on their
capital stock asa fee for incorporation.
The law was so imperfect that the
largest corporations, those organized
in ot her state-b but doing business here,
bail to pay no tax. The Jas.t legislature
jiiii nded tin law so as to include all
such corporations, as well as all in
creases of capital stock by corporations
already foi med, so that a corporation
could not evade the law by organizing
with a small capital stock and thou im
mediately increasing it. The result ha
been that, even in these; hard t linen,

curious fact that this method of curing,
which has been learned during more
than a entury and has been slowly
evolved by gradual experience, is based
on the li-ost correct scientific principles

more than two-thirds of his dairy being
slaughtered, awl all found on examina

One of the most costly products a
dairyman can feed is No. 1 timothy
hay. It is far cheaper to sell such hay
and buy grain with tho money, though
such a plan would bo considered worse
than heresy by many fanners. We uso
hay to supply "roughage." No one who
has ever studied the matter believes
that timothy is a cheap source of pro
tein. The "roughage" can bo supplied
very much cheaper iu the form of ensi
lage, cornstalks, oats and ptas and clo
ver hay, while with tho latter a largo
quantity of actual nutriment is also
obtaimtl. It is little short of folly in
these times for a dairy farmer to do
