' Every true party man holds to the principle that mistakes and abuses, if titiy exint, should 1o corrected within tho party. In no other way can 11 party organization l kept up t cket, lie does tho greatest injury to his party and not to the inli vidua candidate against whom lie votes. The pnrty is always on trial, for it is responsible fur tho nets of the officers itelci ts.

If a nominee is defeated or his ma jority reduced it wetikna thepnrty To I'efent the party to correct iN minor mistakes is like killing the patietit to cure the disease. A slight cuse for lopping off the whole arm We hold that when a party becomes no defiant of the people's rights asto persistently elect corrupt and incom petent men to office, pass unwhole some laws and override the will of ih people, it should he whipped from power with scorpion lash. Until that state come to exist in the Dem ocratic party in state and county, no Democrat has a reasonableexcuse for voting against the ticket or scratching a nominee. The men who hold party principle above individual candidates are cer tainly the ones deserving of that party's favors. When the Republicans were in pow er in Bates county the Record, edited and published by 0. D. Austin then as now, had all the public printing, at full legal rate of one dollar per square, with liberal measurements allowed. The county clerk's records show that at one time he was allow ed by the court seventeen hundred dollars (f 1,700) for publishing the delinquent list for which $150 or f 290 would have been good pay.

Much has been said by Republican leaders about reducing the Demo cratic majority in Hates county. Lt us see by a fair analysis of the vole if the facts justify such a claim. We will make the comparison with the 11)00 vote, although that was a president ial year and majorities in off years nre never so large. The vote shows that the Republi cans got the full vote of the middle of the road Populists os they claim, ed: Supreme Judge mm, Democrat! j.v5 Supreme JudKe l!KK), Itep. and Pop Dem. niainrltv In lurui i.' fnprrmeSurtjre in02, IVmocrata 2iw .-uirrn,e juuge e.KK, Republicans .iV.13 Oem. majority In l!n ... . an; lem')cratic vote In 1.0. ....,.. -.n& Democratic vote in l!i . 2nxo Oemocratic lose K. p and I'op. in la 10 Itep. aud Pop.

The same condition is shown in Judge DeAwjioud's vote uud on the head of the county ticket. A bit ter personul fight was made on some -tf thernomtrrees .f the county ticket and their majorities rednc d. but the above absolutely fair analysis bIiows that the Democratic nicj rities in Bates comity have no b-eu reduced. If the Republicans i nn gt any sat isfatibu out of this year's vote, they are welcome to it. UH5 Colonel Ed. Butl-r whs convicted in the Booim county c. urt on an in dictment for bribery, found tyaSt. Louis grand jury and sentenced to three years in the penitentiary. His lawyers gave notice of appeal to the supreme court, and Col. Butler was released on a f 10,000 bond, signed by citizens of Columbia. The jury agreed on a verdict of guilty on the first ballot, the only difference being the length of term. An analysis of nearly every to n ship in the county shows that the combined Republicans and Middle-of-the-road Populists haven't increased their votes, but ihe Democrats stay ed at home. In Mt.

The suit is brought to compel the defendant to reduce telephone rentals iu Kansas City to those fixed by ordinance of th-itcity Thin is a just recognition of Mi Smith's fairness and ability, and came as a surprise to him. Consideringthe well-organized, con centrated and, in some places, vicious and disreputable fight made on T. K. Lisle, evidences of which are still coming to light, it is somewhat re markable that he had a majority at all. Mr. Lisle throughout the cam paign carried himself in a manly, dignified manner, refusing to engage in the same kind of methods used against him, and thoroughly demons trating to the public, t hat the claims of his friends that he was a clean, sober and industrious citizen, were true, aud his conduct of the office will be entirely satisfactory to the public.

(Communicated.) An old line Democrat who has nev er held office either count v or state ( in Bates county, wonders what cer tain so-called died in the wool demo crats, who were active in their support of Clark Wix's lately candidacy, think of his cardofthauks appearing in the Republican paper of ButW. These people are thanked for the support, which they gave to him "as well as the ticket (Republi can) which I in part represeuted."-" He further says: "I will continue to stand in the line of duty as a Re publican ready at all times to do all 1 can for my party." If A had built a house and desired it to stand, aud B should be engaged in an effort to tear that house down, aud A should assist him in the work. A's sanity might well be questioned. The work of the Republican party is, and has been in all of its history, to destroy the Democratic party, the party of the people, as its very nnme signifies; aud in this work Mr. Wix frankly says: "I will continuo at al times to do all I can " Who that is a D-niocrat then, can take con. fort in the fact that he has helped Mr. Wix alon-x in his work. Democrats' were once required by a law of Republican onaclment before they "ould vote, hold office, sit on jury &c. to swear that they had nev er given aid, comfort or encourage ment to the reliellion. Should such a test oath b now re quired of these Democrats where would they staud should their right to tuke part in the councils of the party be culled in question. Erring Democrat this is a time for soImt reflection. Re-rend aud con sider well your late vote in the light of Bro. Wix's letter, and then "go thy way and ein no more." Dem. O. Chat. Alex. L.
