Great Error of

JUFPHItSON CITY, Nov. 29
(Special Corresponilonco ) In his
farewell m iron go to the general as
sembly Governor Gardner will urge
action by that body on three Impor
tant measures which carry the glorj
of the passing ilemocratlo ndmlnlKtra
tlon Into posterity. One big proposi
tion la that legislation be enacted at
onco to mako the J60.000.000 bond
Jorao which carrli d at the November
election, effective as speedily aB po1-
Blble, in order that tho work of se
curing a real road building KjHtem
In this ftnte mny bo accomplished as
noon an possible.
A reduction of the Income tax rate
and to Increase tho exemptions un
der that law to the old basis of 3 000
and $4,000 Is the kocond proposition.
Ho will also atk a revision of the cor
poration franchise tax to clear up the
disputed point as to Indebtedness be
ing taxable under the law.

"Ono thousand flo hundred 15o
publicans were made Into Democrats
ovornlght In Poplar Illurt Hut Satur
day," said W. T. Meredith of that
place, who was tho Democratic noml
iico for attorney-general In the recent
campaign.
He explained tho statement by Fry
ing that a big cooperage tompanj op
orating In that place hael closed down
Indefinitely on tint day. "Every
mother's son of the company voted
tho Ilepubllcan ticket November 2,"
said Meredith. "Now to a man nnd
woman they are declaring that they
will vote tho Democratic ticket tho
next time."
More Drastic Ilglslatloii Ahead
Missouri leaders of the Anti-Saloon
League cliim that the newlj elected
congress Is the driest congress In tho
history of America. That means a
long dry spell. The famous Volstead
Act is not likely to be .unended dur
ing tho next two years. Tor the bone
fit of the vast number of sadly parch
ed disciples of Dacchus, Oamljiinus
and John Baric) com who aie fond of
"whlto mule" bcauso of tho "kick"
which la concenled In this variety of
alcoholic "drippings" and those who
slyly when the environments arc f iv
orablo deeply imbibe, home-brews
"Jaklo" nnd medicated bitters nnd
wlno with from 20 to 30 per cent of
"pep" it Is well to stato that even
more radical legislation is planned.
Voted I'n' Hardin'
In speaking of tho election the
'rnilmrin'i Times concluded a para
graph thus:
i.i tins connection tho following
story comcH to us of a conversation
which took place between two negro
Ilepubllcan voters Just after tho elec
tion," which ran in this manner:
Two Pnrmlngton ladles of pro
nounced shade met Just nfter tho
- election, when the following dlaloguo
"Innued:
"Who'd you vote fii?'
"I voted for Mr. Hardin', who'd
you vote fo"?"
"I -voted fo' MIstnh Hardin' too;
lha wasn't any other candidate, was
lha?"
"Oh, yes, tho whlto folks had a
candidate."

to tho polls to vote last election day,
and four-fifths of those stajed-at-homes

The gain In real, hundred per cent

NUMBER 14
WOULD NOT SERVE
Henry IMIHiwImm tniU UtH Ar-efpt
Uio Pniapiitt or tin- l'taite
Countj Pair Again,
Tho Platte County Pair IeM at
Platto City In tho democratic kingdom
of Platte is the one fair that has al
ways been a success in its over half a
century's existence, and the reason of
that is, that beside tho people of that
county being the best on earth, they
havo men who know how and who
not only know how but do thing.
That is why It succeeds and will so
continue.
Among those- who have tnaelo It
succ eed Is Its retiring president, Henry
I Dillingham, whose efforts havo at
wajs brought succesB. This year ho
absolutely declined re-election. Of
his good work the Platte County
Lindmark of last week tersely says:
"An effort was madu to get Henry
I Dillingham to fcerve again as presi
dent, tho last fair having been such a
great HuccosH under his presidency,
but no Inducement could be hjueught
to bear to got him to accept the re
sponsibilities again, so the stockhold
ers did tho nest best thing they could
havo elono elected Mr Hope as pres
ident and Mr. Dillingham as vloe
presldent. ' A report at tho meeting showed
tho association to be in splendid fi
nancial condition, having to Its credit
$1400. This Is a remarkably flno
showing, osileolally when one com
pares It with tho State Talr. which I
said to have lost this year over
$28,000."
