TERrtS. $1.00 PER YEAR. ntrfd at tbe LciinRton postofflce second class mall matter. I. Q. NEALE, Editor and Proprietor. Sattrpat. November 16, 1901 The Record Broken. Governor Dockery has broken the Missouri record for brevity In thanks giving proclamations, wherein he dis plays most commendable judgment. The annual wordy message that has been sent out in tbisstate along about this season of the year, wherein the chief executive has emnloyed great space in the columns of the newspapers in telling the people of those things for which they should give thanks, bad become a bore to the masses and Gov. lKickery has placed the public under obligations in giving them something new along the line of the thanksgiving proclamation. We ap pend the record-breaking state paper issued by the chief executive at Jeffer son City: "The president of the United States, In accordance with long estab lished and appropriate custom, having designated Thursday, November 28, 1901, as a day of thanksgiving and prayer, 1 therefore respectfully re quest the people of Missouri to observe the day and return thanks to Almighty God for the many blessings bestowed upon our country during the twelve months past." It Fools Nobody. Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, says that the pronounced republican victory in that state is an endorsement of bis party's theory of protection for pro tection's sake, and therefore the com ing congress will make no etlort to reduce our tariff schedules. Wonder if Mr. Grosvenor thinks anybody will Ik- surprised at this announcement? NoIkkIv expects impossibilities and it is as impossible for the republican party t break awav from the tariff barons' purse-strings as it would ! to make a truth-teller of the editor of the Glolie.lH-miK.Tdt or turn the moon Into a mass of green cheese. If Mr. Grosvenor wanted to do -the manly thing why did be not come out from behind his curtain of cowardice and state plainly that his party has con cluded to continue Its unholy practice of robbing the American people for the benefit of those millionaires in the eist who furnish the money to keep that aggregation of schemers, under guise of law, in power. If it be true that Crokcr has really declared his intention of giv'ng up political bossism In America it is actually too bad. To think of losing this assertive master and ambitious czar is enough to bring tears to the eyes of the average American citizen. What in the world would become of the country should we lose Jo Shannon or Jim Pendergast? The mere thought of such a calamity makes us shudder. The erstwhile plutocratic and dic tatorial Kansas City Star has "heard something drop" in its circulation department since it began the under taking of choking its nauseating gov ernmental policies down the throats of Misv.uriaiis. There are some things that money won't buy, and. thank the bird, one of these things is the esteem in which the white people of this stati-hold themselves. Wonder if republican leaders who are anxious to pay their debts at the expense of the people are still of the opinion that they can so dress up that ship su'jsidy steal that its apparent garb of decency w ill fool the American people' Let them lay not this nat tering unction to their souls. The gullibility of the people of this coun try is not so pronounced as some peo ple think. Congress convenes early in Decem ber, the president is engaged in pre paring his message and daily pilgrimages are being made to the executive mansion by republican leaders to sve that their impulsive chief executive commits no overt act or makes no bad break in his coming state paper. One of the latest apostles of corrupt rule to visit Mr. Roosevelt was the g-entleman from Ohio, Marcus Aure 11 us Hanna, through the vote of a be nighted legislative body a United States senator from that common wealth. The conference between the bellwether advocate of the shlp suhsidy steal and the hero of San Juan must have been most satisfactory to the Ohio specimen of latter day states maashlp, for of the meeting the asso ciated press states that the two men agreed on all mat ters of party policy save that of trusts, and that the dis agreement on that issue was trivial. Thus' passes from the heart of American patriotism any hope of relief from existing conditions at the hands of the new chief executive. With his party chained, shackled and securely bound to the interests of the tariff barons of the east, Mr. Hanna has doubtless made it plain to Mr. Roosevelt that any move in the direc tion of giving the American people freedom from the grasp of plutocratic greed will lead to endless trouble within republican ranks and finally result in the overthrow of that party, which, as has been proven by history, can only succeed through the reckless use of money, the coercion of their employes by the great corporations of the country, or through the bayonet under force rule as was the case dur ing that period of our nation's history Immediately follow ing the close of the great civil war of the sixties. In the same storv from the wires that tells of the agreement of Hanna and Roosevelt on "all matters of public policy with the exception of that of trusts" the newspaper corre spondent states that, there will be no tampering with the tariff question by me next congress; 111 wmcn we are reminded that the great reciprocity speech delivered by William McKlnley at Buffalo shortly liefore he was assas sinated and the many utterances of Roosevelt while vice-president Imply ing relief from the tariff infamy were merely passing remarks made to entertain. This is onlv another instance of republican insincerity in dealing with the public, to the repetition of which misrepresentation and perversion of truth the American people have grown accustomed. Should the repub lican party perchance keep a pledge inviolate the civilized world would look on with awe especially a pledge guaranteeing protection to the people agaiast the unholy encroachments of organized wealth. To disagree on the trust issue and agree to leave the tariff intact seems to us paradoxical. The tariff is the father of trusts and the only way to rid the country of these pernicious combines of millions of wealth that are now controlling the commerce of the country and shutting out honest competition Is to kill th? h.-i that lays the egg that hatches t lie chicken. This reported conference lietween Senator Hanna and President Roose velt means a great deal more than a casual glance would imply. "Agreed on all questions save the trusts," says the correspondent. Which means that Roosevelt favors the ship subsidy steal, abrogation of the Monroe doc trine by continued war in the Philip pines, centralization of govermental power in the hands of the few in fact, It means plutocracy against democracy, classes against masses, organized greed with govermental backing against patriotism. The Intelmokxckk Is free to admit that It has not been deceived in Mr. Roosevelt. The republican party owned txxly and soul bv the money Chxumitaneei Alter Cases. While the lying Globe-Democrat has been persistently abusing Missouri, simply because the state is in demo crat hands, that vile sheet thinks everything is lovely in rotten republi can Kansas, simply because that tax ridden, bankrupt state is in republican hands. Republican robbery and cor ruption, in the eyes of the G.-D., are much more commendable than dem ocratic honesty. Attention of the G.D. Is directed to the following condition of affairs in republican Kansas: 'The state treasury under this 'splendid republican business adminis tration' has 'gone broke' again. 'Not paid for want of funds' is the stamp put upon warrants since last Friday. The Topeka banks furnish the money to pay these warrants and the state pays 7 per cent interest to the banks. It 'is estimated that the deficit by Jan uary 1st will reach 1300,000 and by the first of April it will teach 1400.000. "The last republican legislature, (and its acts were heartily approved by our 'business' governor), had to pay political obligations by creating some forty new, high salaried offices, and numerous minor places to repay the big and little politicians who did the dirty duty, in carrying the state. "The good, honest voters In the ranks of the party received not a penny nor.a place, but were deceived into voting for this vast army of boodlers. "The Quantrell raid claims were paid after some 'way up' republicans purchased them at two cents on the dollar. The state paid these grafters a hundred cents for their worthless two-cent paper that has been turned down by every other legislature for a third of a century." The above clipping is from tly Pratt County Union. Now turn IP- the Riirhpr fiinntv Tnrtpr nnrt rpp th8 rate of taxation, which Is as follows: State revenue, county general fund. county interest on bonds and county sinking fund, 28 mills on the dollar; Medicine Lodge township levy, 1.1 mills; Medicine Lo:lge city levy, 40 mills: Medicine Lodge school district levy, 40 mills, or a total of 123 mills, which is 12.3 per cent, of the assessed valuation. Just think of such outrageous taxa tion! Over twelve per cent! And yet state warrants are not paid for want of funds and the warrants tiear 7 per cent, in order to make them saleable. Such a condition of affairs in any democratic stilt e would be held up as an example of dishonesty and incom petency. But it Is all right in poor, republican, brss-ridden Kansas. The backbone of the surplus in the national treasury is distinctively re publican. Marshall Republican. So It is; but it was rung from the pockets of the toiling masses of the country under the most damnable system of taxation fknown to the history of civilized governmennts. Yes, it Is "distinctively republican." Take it and keep it. The inort- we think of supplanting republicans with democrats in the United States senate from the states of Kentucky and Maryland the lietter we feel. . believer in centralized xiwer and federal oppression has no more business representing one of Uiese states in. the senate than-hxs Pinky Bliiz to be sent as a delegate to a convention of Christian F.ndeav orers. I!ex Bogy, of the Richmond Dem ocrat, says that the newspaper bus iness in that town is a good thing, but a "rockery wink" goes along with the statement. One would judge by reading Is-lwecn the lines in Bro. Bogy's excellent paper that the business is badly overdone In our neighbor city across the Big Muddy. i- power of the country and we have felt all along that when the party lash was applied the president would be h'd Into "seeing the error of his way." Mr. Hanna simply explained to Mr. Roosevelt the result of broken faith wirh Wall street and the probable hazardous outcome of an application of the lex talionis by organized capital. That was Kiitllcient. President lioosevelt may '-play to tne galleries" In bis message on the trust diiostion, but to look for liny relief along this line at the hands of the coming congress Is, in our opinion, t o nurse a forlorn hope. Mr. II anna and other party leaders who control the policies of the rcptilt lican part y are wedded to their Idols eastern money-bags and even should Mr. Roosevelt show a desire to lend aid to tho masses he could not do so for the reason that his hands are tied. The Saline County Index last week had a very pretty feature in a group of portraits of Gene Field as the dead Ipoet is remembered at the state university. It was a piece of com mendable Journalistic work. By the way, the Index is one of our neatest and most valued exchanges. There seems to be a general demand over in Carroll county for Xewian Cnnk.1 in to go back to the legislature. Mr. "Conklin is certainly to be con gratulated In that he has the endorse ment of his people in the manner in which he has represented his county. The much talked of W. R. Hearst sclrf-me to Inaugurate the publication of a morning democratic daily In Kan sas City seems to have lapsed Into a condition of innocuous desuetude, or died abornin'. Maybe 'twas simply talk in the first place. Cole Younger was offered a police captaincy at M inneapolis but refused to accept. Jn which we are of opinion that he exercised a commend able spirit of modesty under all the circumstances. As a pointed parugrapher the editor of the Paris Mercury is a pronounced success. While sometimes not very elegant in the points made he hits the nail on the head with emphatic force. , Missouri kickers should cose to kick and get down to work for Un democratic party. A house divided against Itself cannot expert to accom plish much. President Roosevelt lias set apart Thursday, Noveinlx-r as a day of thanksgiving. Sensible turkeys will now take to the high grass. The latest startling report from the national capital is to the effect, that President Roosevelt is opposed to short-tailed horses.
