BELL FROM THE CONSTITUTION OF WYOMING Governor—Qualifications of. No person shall be eli gible to the office of Governor unless he be a citizen of the United States and a qualified elector of the State, who has attained the age of thirty years, and who has resided five years next preceding the election within the State or territory, nor shall he be eligible to any other office during the term for which he was elected. THE KING IS DEAD. LONG LIVE THE KING. Who owns the Enterprise? The question has been asked a hundred times since the sale Monday under foreclosure proceed ings instituted by the First National bank to recover on SIO,OOO worth of notes of several years standing. The purchaser was Martin A. Jobe at about $3,500 who says he understands the newspaper business and proposes to run it. Mr. Jobe is a man of recognized ability, has a long head and a long pocketbook, two very necessary and essential qualities in the con duct of a newspaper. He is a good penman and aside from his composition of checks in the transaction of business little is known of his literary ability. Another luminary in the Democratic galaxy of stars is our own Frank L. Houx, who is giving the orders and has placed L. M. Prill in charge. Just how he came to dictate the spending of Jobe’s money is a quandrary but his pse of the governor’s plethoric purse is within reasonable bounds of speculation, at least. At any rate, W. L. Simpson, is out. He has made a great sacrifice in spreading the doctrines of Democracy for eight months and has done a good job of it. He has demonstrated that type and machinery do not make a newspaper but an individual person ality does. Ttyit Simpson gave the Enterprise and the paper has had a wide reading and an extensive quotation. Mr. Simpson has stood for the best things for Cody and has boosted to the last atom of his strength. The Herald regrets his retirement from the news paper field and wishes him unbounded success in the practice of law, to which profession he has given most of his life. L. M. Prill, the new manager is a young man of marked ability and pleasing personality. He has been in the city for the past six months and has formed a wide acquaintance. He is an excellent mechanic in the art preservative and a good writer. He is a clean competitor and plays the game fairly. The Herald wishes this young man his share of the business and is glad to join him in the promotion of the best interests of Park county. + —* —* PEOPLE YOU OUGHT TO KNOW There are many people in this town you ought to know, for: your own sake. Some of them you may not know, but you should. You should know the banker. He is the one who supplies you with money when you need it, and cares for your money when you have it. No town could conduct modern business without him. Y'ou should know each merchant. They have the goods you want, and if you know each one personally you also know some thing of the wares they sell. This enables you to buy judiciously and saves you many a lost penny. Y’ou should know the mechanic. Every time an improvement is made you must call him in. If you likewise know the one who, is most likely to give you the best service. You should know the school teacher. He is responsible to a: great degree for the moulding of the character of your children, for the lessons they learn while under his care are not forgotten even unto the brink of the grave. Know him, and help him. You should know the farmer. He holds the world in the hol low of his hand. To him we look for the production of the susten ance of life, and without him we could not live. You should know the minister. He is interested in you. though you may give little thought to him. He does not supply vou with the bread you eat, or the clothes you wear, but he does beckon you along the road to a better life beyond. Know him, and hear him. anil heed him. And. brother, you should know the sheriff. When the devil gets under your hide the sheriff is a good man to know. If you are inclined to kick up a little dust your knowledge of him may cause you to pause before you kick. Yes, know the sheriff, for w hile you are a good citizen he is your friend, and when you cease, to be good he puts you where you can be nothing but good. * ——*> WHAT ARE YOU DOING? What are you doing for this town ? What are you doing to justify your citizenship in this town?j You can not sit down, criticise let others do the work that makes a town or community, and still call yourself a good citizen. That is good citizenship—partially. In addition, the good citizens remembers that his own town isj NORTHERN WYOMING HERALD entitled to his best efforts in its behalf to the end that the interests of the communiy may be advanced by all legitimate means. The good citizen never thinks only of self. He must neces sarily think of self or he would not survive but good citizenship requires more than that—much more. It requires that you keep in mind that there are others who have rights and are entitiled to have those rights respected by others—by you. On the same basis you are entitled to have your rights equally respected by them. This means, too, that in advancing the interests you are ad vancing your own, which is the ultimate aim of the human race. What, then, are you doing to constitute yourself a good cit izen? BOOSTING SUGGESTIONS The Herald has received so many expressions of hearty ap proval of the stand it took last week for the improvement of the Cody community that it ventures to make three more suggestions. Here they are. Get right out and go after the things we need and don’t stop until they are a reality. Get right out and go after the things we need and don’t stop until they are a reality. Get right out and go after the things we need and don’t stop until they are a reality. And then here’s another: Get right right out and go after the things we need and don’t stop until they are a reality. Mr. Hughes’ methods as a reformer were positive. He will carry the same force of character into the presidential office he ex ercised in the office of governor of New York. He cleaned up that state and gave it good and wholesome legislation. One cannot but be impressed with the manliness, sincerity and | forcefulness of the Republican candidate for president. —+— + It is really pitiful that the democrats cannot find one single flaw in the past record of Charles Evans Hughes. 1- 4-4 The Republican ticket appeals to the intelligence of the Amer j ican people rather than to their emotions. WAR WOOL WILSON AND WYO. Wars will be waged. Warriors want warm winter wear. Wilson will ed free wool. Wyoming wonders why. Having rid our system of that alliteration, let’s talk the matter over. Prior to the outbreak of the Europ ; ean war, we were not exporters of wool wearing apparel to an appreci able extent. Our milts had all they could do to supply our needs. We sold in foreign markets, not more than 54,500.000 a year. From the outbreak of the European war. Aug. !, 1914, to June 30, 1910, we exported wool wearing apparel to the value of $270,000.000 —a pretty good indica tion. is it not. that v/00l is the prime 1 requisite in wnr times? There is a : certain kind of “cold feet” that makes a man “too proud to fight” but the physically cold feet renders even a brave man incapable of effecient fighting. Wool socks warm the latter: hcllfire itself cannot thaw the former. Wool blankets warm the soldier: hot air warms the politician, i Nor were we exporters of much wool. Our producers sold their clip in this country; it was made in American mills, employing American : labor. In 1914 we sent away 335,000 pounds. In 1915 we exported 8,158,-j ,000 pounds, worth $2,210,000. In. 191 G, a little over half as much but the price doubled. The tariff board estimated that in 1910 our wool manu facturers used 500,000,000 pounds of raw wool of all kinds annually. Thej production of the United States atj that time was in the neighborhood of - 325,000,000 pounds coming under thej head of classes 1 and 2. In that yent-' Wyoming topped the list of sheep: 1 raising states and was second in the production of wool, with 30,000,000 j ; pounds of washed and unwashed wool,: equal to 11,500,000 pounds of the scoured. Montana has the edge on | Wyoming in wool production by very! little. The stock argument of the demo- j crats was that free wool meant cheap- 1 er clothing, because it meant cheap- \ er woo! with which to make it. When:, the Wiison-Underwood free wool:, measure, passed the House in May i 1913, the certainty of free wool caused I • the price to drop. When there is a.i threat of free wool buyers decline to ' buy except for immediate needs, un- 1 less they can buy at a price that wilt < not involve a loss. They depend on < their surplus stocks to carry them 1 through until free wool is a certainty. 1 They buy on a free trade basis or!< not at all. The manufacturers had ’ made up their samples for the fall |< and winter of 1913 and the spring an lj< summer of 1914 very largely of , 1 American wool. The clothes could ’ not he made up of subsituted foreign M wools, so having cut down their pur- ‘ chase of American wools when free;' trade was threatened, when the 1914 < clip came in they found themselves! 1 buying in competition with each * other, and strange as it might other-1 * wise seem, the price of American: * wool went up. The war came on and * for some time an embargo was laid]* on Australian wool, and the price con-r tinued up. The Democratic party, ’ having declared that free wool meant ' cheaper wool, then turned around and bragged that their tariff law had rais ed the price of wool. What inconsis tency! During the fiscal year 1913, under And Why Does Big Business Choose The Royal? “Big business” is big because it is organized and managed for tomorrow, and next year and years ahead. “Big business" buys and ueses Royal Typewriters. Big business can t afford to have the "trading-in” nuisance everv so often in its typewriting department. Big business knows the leaking time when work is held up while type writers are being repaired. Dig business knows the time lost when operators have to “fight” their machines. Big business knows that the Royal is instantly adjusted to the personality of the operator, that the Royal has long life built into it, that the Royal does all a typewriter should do. Ihe Royal writes,bi lis and charges, and writes cards—without a single extra attachment, without a change, without a stop. Right there in your office the Royal will not only save you money in the long run, but will go a long way toward helping you to mak more money. It won’t take more than a few minutes to see the Royal and to let it be demonstrated. That’s the quickest way to get the facts. Whether you use one or a hundred typewriters, whether you are now con sidering a purchase or not, get acquainted with the Royal. Telephone us. and we’ll come. Or drop us a note. No obligations whatever for you— we’ll thank you. Royal Typewriter Co., Inc. FACTORY—HARTFORD, CONN. GENERAL OFFICES—NEW YORK Branches and Agencies the World Over. This country needs • fearless man for president and it will get it in the person of Charles Evans Hughes. h Where there’s a will (son) there’s away (ting.) Repulican law, we imported 84,000 pounds of wool classes 1 and 2, which paid us nearly $10,000,000 of revenue. We imported 146,000,000 pounds in 1914 under democratic law, seven months of free wool, 242.000,000 in 1915, and 426,000,000 in 1916. An in significant duty was realized from this wool, because angora goat hair was retained on the dutiable list, thanks to Congressman Garner, of Texas, (an angora wool producing state,) who was a framer of the bill. Altogether we have lost considerably over $100,000,000 in revenue from ! wool alone, and the consumer got no benefit, but he paid more internal taxes. Wyoming is going republican be cause it wants a return to the pro tective policy, Wyoming knows that competition from Australia will be strong after the war and she knows wool prices have been higher because of the war. Wyoming believes it is a wiser measure of Military prepared -1 ness to encourage the production of wool in America than it is a gov enrment owned nitrate plant. Wyo ming “watchfully waits” for a wallop at Woodrow. Let all wool states do likewise. MONUMENT HILL Mrs. Della Carsen who has been visiting relatives in this vicinity left last Saturday for Lovell where she will spend some time visiting at the home of her brother before returning to her home near Gillette, Wyoming. Claud Hooker has christened his FRIDAY, OCTOBER «, Wl6 homestead the Lawnell Ranch. The Herald recently printed some fi ne stationary with this heading which Claud is very proud of. Rev. Mylroie held services at the Harry L. Wiard home last Sunday. The next services will be held Oct 15th. A few friends gave a very pleasant birthday surprise party on Fred Wiard last Monday evening. A very enjoyable time is reported by those present. Lee Ewing has been helping the Goff’s stack their grain which was completed Monday. George Hank finished his stacking on the same day. The patrons of the proposed cotton wood school will entrain enmasse on log wagons Saturday for Bald Ridge where they will get out a set of house logs to be put into the new building. The recent big fires on the hill were just ranchers burning sage brush in readiness for the plow to follow. The brush is very dry at this time of the year and burns the stumps clean There is some little danger of the fires spreading through the dry gras., in a high wind but to date no scriou., results have followed. There was a light snow fall on the hill Tuesday night. CLARKS FORK APPLES NIL The apple crop on the Clark’s fork valley is practically a failure this sea son and there will not be enough to supply the local demand. On the Bighorn river the crop is unusually large.
