Our contemporary strained itself last week in a "spiel" on the carni val company that held forth here three days the week before. Few , if any , patronized it more than did the editor of that paper , and it was no more demoralizing than the cir cus and other shows he has lauded to the skies. It is unreasonable for a newspaper to censure a town board or a show because they are not disposed to give it patronage , and it is not fair , under the guise of morality , to espouse the cause of those disgruntled at a city council for refusing to throw its town wide- open to gambling every time there is something specially doing. Valentine Republican. We're glad you spoke Bro. Bark er. We like to know where you stand. It seems that the Republi can would be willing to allow gambling if it was practiced by some of the other people , but seems to have a grudge againss those who do not give him their patronage. It's all right for the town board to permit these things if they'll only vstand next to Barker and the Re publican. We noticed some in consistencies too Bro. Barker. We saw gambling practiced by one of the leading crusaders against the saloon gambling. Does it mean that a man is jealous of patronage or profits as a reason for his cru sading against others ? Is there a consideration for all evil in the eyes of some of our townspeople ? Further , Mr. Barker , we have never "lauded to the hkies" any circus or shows which overrun our town with gambling and fakirs , nor have we given applause where there was not merit. If you are ' i shouldering the ' responsibility of the town board for this carnival because they patronized you , then you have naturally thought tliat THE DEMOCRAT was against thorn for lack of patronage.Vasn't there gambling done and no effort made to stop it ? Why ? , Was there indecent performances ? Were our streets blockaded by these fakirs for thrco. clays , as no other circus or show has overdone ' and all for § 25 with gambling li- , cense thrown in ? Were all fakes excused because thoy sold confetti awl called themselves a carnival , company ? The Difference Between Republican and Fusion Administrations. Fusion Economy. Republican Extravagance.

Dodger , The Lincoln ( Neb. ) Star ( rep. ) , having referred to the Mickey- Hays incident as "an old fake , ' ' the World-Herald submitted these questions : "Is it not true that Governor Mickey called into his office James E. Hayes , then chief oil inspector , and requested him , in'lhe presence of a representrtive of the Standard oil company , to approve several car loads of oil which Mr. Hays had previously condemned ? " "Is it not true that Mr. Hays declined to comply with Governor ' I" Mickey's 'request "Is it not true that within one hour after Mr. Hays had declined to accede to Mr. Mickey's request Mr. Hays was removed from office ? " "Is it not true that Mr. Hays' successor was Ed'A. Church , the favored candidate of the Standard oil trust ? " "Is it not also true that among the early acts of Mr. Church's ad ministration was the approval of the oil which Mr. Hays' had con demned and which condemnation he had , in response to the governor's request , refused to cancel ? " In a pretended reply , the Star now insists that the Mickey-Hays incident is "nothing but a fake , " but it is noticeable that the Star does not answer the World-Herald's questions. World-Herald. Kick Out the Burgular and Save the Spoons , ( World-Herald. ) Friend , Nebr. , Sept. 25. The Friend Telegraph , which , although supporting the republican national ticket , has refused to give support to Mickey and the republican state ticket , and which is engaged in a Strong fight against the republican revenue law , has been vigorously scored by the republican managers. In this week's issue of the Tele graph , which is edited by E. Whitcomb , one of the best known re publican editors in the state , it makes a very lively reply to its critics. The Telegraph says : "When the so-called revenue law was in project we remonstrated with the representatives and senator from this county personally , and this paper sounded the danger warning week after week , stating that the proposed measure was one destined to rob the people , and pointing out the remedy in cutting off from pay some forty or more unneces sary officers who had from time to time been provided f © r in this state until they had become a burden , and had run the state in debt up wards of $2,000,000. None of this was heeded , but the revenue law went through like a kite. The taxes have been doubled since 1902 , and because the Telegraph takes occasion to post its readers on what they are compelled to pay next spring , say we are a democrat or most any old thing. Of course the Telegraph is at this time more intense ly interested in the well-being of Friend and its surrounding country than it is in the success of any political ring , or the hoisting of any man into office where the people will not receive the just considera tion due them. We have warned all the parties that the Telegraph would not support for any office this fall any person who was not pledged to the repeal of this so-called revenue law , or to so modify it that all parties , both private and corporate , are compelled to bear their equal share and burdens of taxation , and we are carrying out that warning to the strictest letter and so far as we are concerned you may call us whatsoever you choose. Naturally we are and have been re publican , but when a burglar breaks into our house we are not going to cover up our head aid aiiuw Siim to ransack the house simply and solely because he professes to be a republican , but we are going to get rid of him the best and easiest we can and save the spoons and jewel ry. As to Mr. Hinshaw we have good and sufficient reasons for not supporting him , which will be given in due time , and these are well known to Mr. Hinshaw himself. We do not believe that President Roosevelt will be able to carry through to success in this state the load of rottenness into the republican band wagon when it comes along. Generally speaking , the people desire the election of that grand states man , that splendid American , and gallant soldier , Theodore Roosevelt , and as for us , we are going to aid them in every honorable means to secure that much desired end , and we are not going to wallow in the wallow of any political ring in order to do so either. We believe that there is corruption in this state which ought to be got rid of and that it cannot be done any too quickly. We do not believe that thepeoplec generally desire the re-election of the - present governor , and we are not going to lend any aid toward foisting off on them an official that they do not want. We are not going to aid in perpetuating the new revenue law upon them , another thing yhich w < * know they no not want , or will not tolerate longer than they are absolutely compelled to. Any party that will connive to hold up and rob the common peo ple as effectually as does this so-called revenue law , ought to suffer. It ought to be compelled to sit and repent in the slime of rings and gang rule forever , while a prosperous and happy people go on to build up the great state and not rob it and its citizens. " In another editorial in the same issue Editor Whitcomb says : "A very smooth and small bore politician in Saline was heard to remark just prior to the caucuses that the new revenue law was are- publican measure and the party would have to stand behind it. Just so. Told the truth once in your life' , but had no idsa that the farmer would be appraised of he how was being robbed in time to cast his vote against you this fall. Officials and legislators , responsible for this revenue law outrage , from the governor down will receive the just re ward for the part they played in this revenue business. " In another editorial , entitled "Important to FarmersMr. . Whit comb says : "By the provisions of the new revenue law , lands will not be valued again for four years. This insures you high rating of taxation for three years yet and during this time it is proposed to pay off the state's indebtedness. Farm lands being valued 80per cent higher than milroacls , of course the farms will pay 30 per cent more of the state debt than they ought to pay. Now is the time to sit on the new revenue law , and secure its repeal before you have three year's dose in addition to what you are getting this -tj-3 ; Representative Convent'n Call , A delegate convention of the Democratic and Peoples Indepen dent parties is hereby called to rneet at Springview , Nebr. , on Saturday , Oct.

"Be Like Me , " Governor Mickey is reported to have recently said in a speech at Pawnee City , "Friends , you are to be congratulated on the disting uished honor of having a governor with you today ; " he kissed a Polk county baby not long ago and said. "When she gets to be a grandma she can say that she had the honor of being kissed by a real live gov ernor. " Some of the governor's remarks are not only childish and silly , says an exchange , but posi tively ridiculous. Something ought to be done to keep the old fellow still , because we all dislike to see our governor made fun of. It would be a good time next November to take the conceit out of him.
