Plowing and seeding are being done right along. John Swenergan has rented the sw 4 of 30-21-40 from the Lamar Farm company. Why not have a farmers' institute at an early day. The one of last year was of great benefit to all who : participated.

A I pleasant time was had and they went home wishing Ira many happy re turns of the event. Jay. Horse Creek Happenings. Miss Nobles closed her school last F riday. Miss Reynolds has moved a house on her claim. Miss Carrie Vincent has gone to Coolidge to attend school. Fred Gores, of Holly, was a visitor on Horse creek last week. The Vincent boys have been break ing some young horses lately. The Robison boys are breaking the colts that they got in trade with M. M. Brown. W. E. Vincent’s folks gave a taffy pulling to the little folks and large folks last Saturday. Some of the settlers here are talk ing of going to the Oklahoma coun try to see the land. Miss Loriel Watson is at homt now but will return to the home of her sister, Mrs. Stanley, in a day or two. M. M. Brown and wife entertained their friends with an excellent sup per last week. It was an enjoyable affair. A good bridge across the river at Carlton would draw custom from Greeley county, Kansas, to the La mar mill, as it would give a road with no sand. Young Mr. Culbertson, of Osage county, Kansas, is visiting his uncle, R. M. Watson. He has a pack of fox hounds and expects to give the wolves a chase soon. Itemizes. A Reformer. The new state government is al ready involved in a scandal. One of the members elect, now serving the state, has been convicted, and in fact has confessed to a deal, which if prosecuted under the corrupt prac tices act, will deprive him of his of fice and subject him to a fine of ‘‘not more than SI,OOO, or by imprison ment for not less than one or more than five years, or by both fine and imprisonment.” The gentleman referred to is the Auditor of State Goodykuntz. He is the same fellow whose sensibilities were so shocked at the display inci dent to the inaugural ceremonies, that he refused to participate with the governor and other officers, but Subscription Price $1,60 per Year. NUMBER 82. after shedding bitter tears over the weakness and wickedness of these latter days, went off by himself, and took the oath of office before a jus tice of the peace. The facts as developed are, that Goodykuntz before the election gave a written pledge to N. S. Hurd, then deputy insurance commissioner, that in consideration of his support, he would if elected, reappoint him to tho same office. The deal was arranged by that prominent populist, Herb George* and was approved by most of the in surance men of Denver, who wanted Hurd retained in the office. Hurd kept his part of the compact. Al though before a radical republican, he worked early and late for Goody kuntz, and very effectively as the Arapahoe returns show. But when the returns were all in, Mr. Goody kuntz found that the deal had been unnecessary, and that he would have been elected without the aid of Hurd or his friends. Populist influences hostile to Herb George and Hurd got control of the new auditor, and he repudiated his pledge and appointed another man to the head of the insurance department. Mr. Hurd and his friends, and Mr. George were wroth, and have given the whole deal away. Republicans are sorry to see the new administration start out under such circumstances, but are not shed ding any tears over the discomtitnre of Hurd —they are unanimously of the opinion that he gets about all he deserves. The State Lands. The people of the Arkansas valley will not agree with the recommenda tion of Governor Waite that none of the state lands be sold under any cir cumstances. # The state owns large tracts of the very best land in the valley, and but a small proportion of it is being cul tivated, for the reason that no one is willing to buy water for it, and fence and improve it, unless they can have some assurance that they can in the future obtain a title at a reasonable price. The state has no right to act the dog in the manger in this matter. This part of the state is purely agri cultural, and its prosperity depends upon the development of its soil. Every acre of land that is put into cultivation enhances to some extent the property around it. It is the clear duty of the state to assist and not retard development here. It can do that by selling small tracts at fair prices to actual settlers —to those who wish to apply water to the land, and put it under cultivation. By so doing, it will not only qssist materi ally in the development of the valley, but it will enhance the value of its own property, as well as that of others. If the state is to doggedly hold to every acre of the land it con trols in this valley, and not offer in ducements to have it become produc tive, then its ownership is to us a great mieforturne. It might as well be in the hands of other speculators, who would sit down and wait for the valley to develop and prosper, and thereby make their holdings valuable. After wasting nearly a week’s time the desire for spoils overcome the principles of the immaculate “white wings,” and they made a combine with the despised populists, whereby the petty offices of the Senate were farmed out to the two organizations. The delay has cost the state a large sum of money, and it is to be hoped that business will now proceed.
