Oldham is the "live wire" of the organization. Melrose Interested. The Curry county official "muddle" i becoming gener ally known and better under stood as the following clippings from the Melrose Index will indicate. "The friends of R. D. Elder hope his experience in calling attention to his clean court rec ord will be happier than that of the man in roe's 'Black Cat' who called attention to the sta bility of his cellar masonry. The scandal in Curry .county official circles grows no better fast, Those who are for a elean-up are subscribing for the Clovi News. Those who stand for Mabry are, nfcourse, boost ing for his journal. The Index is a spectator, thank you.

A very weak wail from a very weak source comes from out St. Vrain way this week. You know a hit dog always howls and in thfs case it is no excep tion. Honest, upright, exem plary officials do not fear the spot light of investigation and only foolish, uneducated ones indulge in abuse and person alities as a defense. The News space is entirely too valu able to throw away in express ing further opinions o n such an -mworthy subject or giving need to a "bird cage" pamphlet. Personally, we do not care- it's up to the people to do what they please with any whom they might consider traitors so ta, ta. A Way Out. The Governor this week stat ed to the outlook man that he was quite willing to meet the county officers of the various counties half way on a salary measure and said that it had been suggested that a represen tative from each county might come to Santa Fe and talk the matter over and if they could all come to some sort of an agreement that it was quite possible that he would call a special session of the legislature. This seems to be a plausible proposition and each county could send a representative to SantalFe at reasonable expense to confer with the governor and probably come to some agree ment as to the salaries of the various officers and when the Governor has intimated he might call a special session and he undoubtedly would. The county officers certainly need relief in the way of reimburse ments for their services and thia would be the quickest way we have yet heard proposed, for the legislature does r.ot reg ularly meet again for about two years and starvation may set in before that time, and the . coun ty officers don't seem willing to resign and seek some more lu crative occupation.
