/Vfe Yoti Interested in the South
Do you care to know of the marvelous development
now going on in the
Great Central South?
of innumerable opportunities for young men
or old ones—to grow rich?
Do you want to know about rich farming lands, fertile, well located, on a
trunk line railroad, which produce two, three and four crops from the same field
each year, and which can be purchased at very low prices on easy terms? About
stock raising where the extreme of winter feeding is but (6) short weeks? Of
places where truck growing and fruit raising yield enormous returns each year?
Of a land where you can live out of doors every day in the year? Of opportuni
ties for establishing profitable manufacturing industries of rich mineral locations
and splendid business openings? If you want to know the details of any or all
of these write me. I will gladly advise you fully and truthfully.

it.
The purpose of the proposed law is
laudable, but it is doubtful if the meas
ure would attain the purpose aimed at.
There is a law now on the statute
books making it a misdemeanor punish
able by line or imprisonment to carry
concealed weapons. The licensing of
pistol toting could hardly discourage it
for a man,who will habitually pack a
gun without special reason for it would
avoid paying the license or concealing
his license tag, thus defeating the pur
pose of the law, while a man who packs
a gun for a special reason ought to be
locked up.
If the general assembly is really de
sirous of enacting a law that will dis
courage the carrying of concealed
weapons it should so amend the rules of
evidence that the unlawful possession
of a deadly weapon shall be proof pre
sumptive of intent to commit murder.
Killing by a pistol toter should be
placed on the same basis with killing
by a burglar—the possession of the
deadly weapon contrary to law should
be sufficient evidence of murderous
intent.
We are guilty of a whole lot of flap
doodle about this 'gun toting' business.
There are no circumstances under
which it is necessary for a gentleman
to pack a gun. There are circumstan
ces under which he may have to fill
somebody's hide full of buck shot or 44
slugs, but these circumstances do not
allow him to keep his artillery conceal
ed long enough to violate the law."
Howard Tedford, one of the Perkins
managers, wrote a letter to one of his
henchmen in a northwestern county a
couple of weeks ago, pertaining to mat
ters politically. The postmaster, by
mistake of course, put it into the box
of an ardent cummins man who. opened
and read it. The matter was so inter
esting from a progressive standpoint,
that he showed it to some of his friends,
had it photographed, and then returned
it to the postofflce marked "opened by
mistake." And now Uncle Sam's officers
are after him, and a penitentiary sen
tence stares him in the face.
With the standpatters cussing the
progressives and the progressives
cussing the standpatters, who is left
to cuss the democrats?

'GUN TOTERS."
far
"Gun toters" in Iowa are few and
between, but still there are a few
who think it is necessary to carry
pistol in their hip pocket and many
murders are the result. In the south
the practice is still more common al
though the better element is doing
what it can to discourage it. Regard
ing the practice the Lake Charles News
says the following, every word except
perhaps, the last sentence of which is
as true in Iowa as it is in Louisiana:
"A bill has been introduced in the
lower house of the Louisiana legisla
ture requiring 'gun toters' to take out
a license and to wear conspicuously an
aluminum tag, like those used on
licensed dogs. The object of the pro
posed law is to discourage the carrying
of concealed weapons and thereby de
crease crime.
ANOTHER SIDE TO IT.
The Live Stock World of Chicago
says: An Iowa correspondent, who has
been deluded by the nonsense now go
ing the rounds regarding denatured
alcohol, writes for information. He
wants to know if he is at liberty to rig
up a still and bogin converting the con
tents of his corn crib into fluid extract
of heat, power and light in anticipation
of the new law, eliminating the present
tax.going into effect next January 1.
You can't do it brother. More idiotic
drivel lias been ground out on this
alcohol subject lately than any other.
Enough idle distilleries are laying
around the country to produce all the
alcohol that will be needed for years.
Congress has stipulated that stills
must have a capacity of at least 250
gallons per day. That makes the es
tablishment of community stills on the
co-operative plan possible, but prohib
its distilling alcohol by individuals for
their own use.
Go easy on this alcohol proposition,
brother. Before long we are going to
see the prettiest scrap you ever wit
nessed between the whisky and oil
trusts. Gasoline can be sold at 10 cents
a gallon and then 1111 the coffers of the
Standard Oil octupus with dividend
paying material. It is not in the humor
to let the whiskey trust grab its busi
ness. Of course the alcohol producing
outfit will put up a stiff fight and then
will come the tug of war.
After the oil and whisky trusts get
together and agree on prices, it will
be up to the consumer to protect him
self by making alcohol. Meanwhile
don't worry about it.
TARIFF REFORM IN IOWA.
The position of Gov. Cummins on the
tariff issue occupied the attention of
representatives a few days before ad
journment and the republicans were
worked up to fighting pitch by the
question of Champ Clark, if Gov. Cum
mins had not carried Iowa on a tariff
revision issue? J^acey of Iowa declared
that Gov. Cummins had said nothing in
regard to the tariff this year. Champ
Clark reported that last November that
the governor said: "All the robberies
committed by all the life insurance
companies in all time did not equal one
fifth of the robberies inflictcd by the
Dingley bill in one year."
That was too much for the equilibrium
of even that seasoned old debater
Grosvernor who lost his balance and
made the following indiscreet attack
upon Gov. Cummins by declaring: "Any
man who will say that is unworthy of
the confidence of one American citizen
let alone the majority of the state.
Such a man as that is a false libeler of
every decent aspiration of American
citizenship."
As Grosvenor is a mouth organ of the
protective tariff league which thrives
upon contributions from the tariff pro
tected trusts, it is evident that if Gov.
Cummins is nominated on a tariff revi
sion platform the standpatters will try
and defeat him. The democrats in con
gress have had lots of fun sprinkling
salt on the raw hides of the republican
standpatters.
TAINTED MONEY.
7
their
The democrats of Wisconsin
platform just adopted remind the coun
try that the republican national com
mittee has not made restitution of the
large sums received from the life insur
ance corporations filched from the funds
that should have been sacred to the
widows and orphans of policy holders.
The plank adopted condemns the repub
lican party for the acceptance of the
policy holders' money and demands that
the same be restored. Now that Presi
dent Roosevelt has five months' holiday
before him, there can be no excuse for
lack of time, for his not taking up the
matter with chairman Cortelyou and
ordering that restitution of these taint
ed funds be made to their rightful
owners.
The people of Ohio are evidently de
termined to punish the trusts that con
spire to restrain trade within the bor
ders of their commonwealth. In con
sequence five ice dealers, who combined
to raise the price of ice and who are
described as "all prominent in business
and social circles" have been fined
§5,000 each and to serve one year in the
workhouse. Democratic leven is cer
tainly working.
The nomination of United States sen
ators by the people in party primaries
is in successful operation in all the
southern states except Missouri. There
no Platts, Depews or Drydens in the
senate from that section.
The democrats are all going to line
up together for the battle this fall and
when the big round up is over the re
publicans will be wearing a strange
brand, not unlikely the letter D.
The republicans at the first session of
the 59th Congress, sowed only wind
and when the autumn comes they will
reap a whirlwind, or something equally
as good. ____________
