The farmers of Sheridan County

That a county manager plan
was planned to be voted on at the
primary election, July 19, for the
of giving the present
county commissioners the power
to appoint the manager for the
next two years and by doing so
give the manager a chance to hand
out the printing contract to Harry
Polk, was explained in a former
issue of this paper. It is one of
Harry Polk's political tricks.
One of the points we were not
clear on, has been cleared up by
the Attorney General. He gives
the opinion that, if the County
Manager plan has carried at the
primary election, then no names
for Clerk and Recorder, Treasurer,
Assessor and Surveyo can appear
the ballot at the general elec
tion next fall. No matter if these
people have been nomianted at the
primary or not, their filing fee is
not returned, it's lost.
Although the county manager
plan was one of the things recom
mended at the political pow-wow,
it looks very much as if they are
not going thru with it, there are
too many office seekers and they
know they can not all be appoint
ed manager.
It takes petitions with 20% of
the voters signatures in orrer to
bring the question on the ballots
at the primary. It is very doubt
ful that anybody will take the
trouble of circulating the petitions.
It looks like Harry Polk's little
scheme for landing the printing
contract was knocked in the head
by the article in the Producers
News, but he will be cooking up
some more.

In our so -called civilized
so-called Christian part of the
world, no concrete rule has ever
been laid down saying just how
we should be buried after we die.
Neither have any rules for funeral
ceremonies ever been established.
In that respect it has been left
very much to the people them
selves to do as they pleased.

But—when Mr. and Mrs. Rod
^ey Salisbury buried their
trecs in their own garden, instead
of m the cemetery on the barren
hill, where they probably would
not let her in at all, or where she
at least would not have been wel
come. That was a different story,
that was a scandal which was
wired all over the United States
and printed in big daily papers as
far away as Los Angeles, New
York and New Orleans.
If you look over Sheridan ooun
ty, you will find many lone graves
scattered here and there, some of
them you can still find and some
not. You have never heard a word
said about it being wrong that
they were buried outside of a
cemetery but when it. is Janis
Salisbury, then it is different.
Even people who belong to a
church are often buried without
the church taking any part in the
funeral ceremony. Often lodge
take upon themselves to bury their
members. In uniforms and re
galia and carrying their lodge
banners the members will march
in the funeral procession—it's a
fine funeral; there is nothing
wrong there at all. But—when

jthe Young Pioneers, to which Jan
iß Salisbury belonged, put on their
uniforms and their regalia and
follow her to her grave, then it is
all wrong.
When soldiers are buried, it is
done with military honor. Their
comrades will be there in shining
uniforms; they will blow their
horns; they will salute and fire
their guns. It is one hundred per
cent military propaganda, and evr
efybody thiflkS it is just fine.
But—if anybody gets up at lit
tle Janis Salisbury's funeral and
tells the people what she had been
interested in; if her little com
rades get up and sing the songs
that she liked the best; then it is
also propaganda, but this time it
is not good propaganda like the
military one. Oh, no, it is bad,
very bad, something they must
know about clear out to Los An
At young Janis Salisbury's fu
neral there were 400-500 people.
Some of them said it was the most
impressive and best funeral cere

some of them were there to find
faults, and they think thty found
them. If the funeral had taken
place in the church, these sam*i
people would also have found

else. As soon as the funeral was
over, they got busy telling every
body who would listen, that Rod
ney Salisbury was a member of
the United Farmers League, and
from now on everybody who be
longed to the United Farmers
League would have to bury their
dead exactly the same way as he
did. These people knew they lied,
the big daily papers knew they lied
when they printed it, but

keep people from joining the
United Farmers League,
The United Farmers League is
not the only organization Rodney
Salisbury belongs to. He also be
longs to the Degree of Honor. No
body ever heard anybody say that
this funeral should have any ef
feet on the members of the De
gree of Honor. It is a harmless
organization and nobody is inter
ested in telling lies in order to
keep people from joining it. It is
different if you organize for the
purpose of fighting for your rights
and bettering your conditions,
The rest of us can bury our
dead almost anyway we want to

The above is just a summary of
the case as it stands today and it
speaks pretty well for itself. Here
is a good example of what a cor
rupt politician is able to get away
with. Anyone is liable to make
mistakes, but it is not reasonable
to think that all of these claims
were just mistakes and when the
county asks for a refund, we are
told to take it to court, Dolin
knowing that it is impossible to
recover on these overcharges with
out it costing the county more
than we could ever get back.
But one thousand dollars is a
lot of money and right now would
be a good time to either make Do
lin pay back or make a good ex
ample of what happens to one who
tries that line of business on the
county. As far as the bond on a
printing contract is concerned, «
is nothing but a joke for the pur
pose of fooling the people and the
only thing it guarantees is that
the printer will deliver at his own.
price, whatever the county officials
order. But it would be well to
bear in mind that for every claim
Dolin presented, he had to swear
before a Notary Public, that each
claim was honest and true accord
