There is no reason for attaching

BESIDES CALAMITY WHAT
The chnrce that Democratic rule
and legislation have caused dull busi
ness contains the cure for political
workers of high degree and low. which
has been passed along the line from
the Washington headquarters of the
Republican party. This chargf has
been proven false; hut manifestly,
many Republicans .-till hope that by
continuing the melancholic din they
may convince the country of its des
perate case. But from the Democrat
ic standpoint, what is there to face
aside from these lamentations?
The House of Representatives eon
tains 4:i" members. Are any 100 of
them united upon a program of oppo
sition to Democratic policies and
measures that involves anything more
concrete than this dismal chorus of
Does one-fourth of the member
ship of either house propose to repeal
Underwood Competitive Tariff and
substitute the I'ayne-Aldrich-Smoot
Tariff of Privilege? Does any appre
ciable percentage of the Democratic
opposition intimate that the now Re
gional Reserve Bank Act orght to be
discarded and replaced by the Aldrich
Central Bank or the antiquated bank
ing system which broke down so dis
astrously in 1007? How many Re
publican or Progressive politicians
will sign their names to a declaration
that President Wilson's corageous
and determined fight for reform of
anti-trust laws now being prosecuted
at the risk of his health, ought to be
abandonee! ? Should the President,
confronted with the evidence of the
lobby's sinister activities, have re
mained silent and thus have permit
ted agents of invisible government
to continue to do business in the same
old way? Do they want Mulhall back
again, a secret agent of the Rocke
feller banks in the Treasury Depart
ment and Secretaries of the Treas
ury taking the midnight special for
conferences with the chieftains of
the Money Trust every week of so ?
Should the labor legislation of the
present Democratic Congress be re
pealed and the anti-injunction and
the contempt bills be withdrawn?
In every instance the answer must
be a negative one. The evils which
these acts and measures deal with
have cried aloud many years for rem
edies. Other parties and other lead
ers have talked remedies; the Demo
crats entrusted with power for the
first time in eighteen years, have pro

OCEAN'S OF WHEAT
Wall Street may be steeped in
gloom if it likes. Kansas doesn't
care. For Kansas has li4 million
bushels of wheat.
One hundred and eighty-four mil
lion bushels! The figures are incredi
ble. They are too big to have meaning.
The mind doesn't get them. About all
that the average man can grasp is
that the yield is almost exactly double
the biggest previous yield in the his
tory of the Mtate and that was a
yield that made Kansas throw up its
One hundred and eighty-four mil
lion bushels! At' an average price of
(io cents a bushel that " ill net the
farmers of Kansas 120 million dollars.
To get the meaning of this 120
million dollars, fa'! back once more
on comparisons. The Kansas farmers
will get twice as much money from
their wheat this year as they have av
eraged for the iast five years. A good
ly portion of their regular income is
doubled in a year.
The prosperity of Kansas is going
to set a new mark.
Mortgages are going to be reduc
ed, money put away in the bank for
insurance against unforeseen events,
and improvements made about the
farms that will add to their produc
tiveness and make 1 i t'e richer and
more varied in a hundred ways.
Plumbing will be installed in thous
ands of homes, new lichting systems
will be introduced, better clothing and
furniture v ;'.l lie in demand and auto
mobiles and pianos an 1 talking ma
chines will be called for.
The prosperity of the farmer will
filter through to the merchant and
manufacturer and to their employees.
Industry and trade in every depart
ment win be stimulated. The money
that the sun and the rains have pulled
out of the ground will eventually find
its way into the pockets of the work
ers and their families all over this
great So ith'A o:rn country.
The New Haven may have its
troubles, and the east may shake its
head in doom. But Missouri is com
in with splendid crops, and Iowa

far happier than he would be holding
the best office in the state. Mr. K. t.
Beaslev recently ran for Congress in
this district and bore his part of the
legitimate expenses of the campaign.
Those expenses were the printing and
distribution of the tickets, etc. He was
defeated for the nomination, and a bill
has been presented to him ot some
SM00 for the payment of the poll hol
ders in certain counties in the district.
This bill Mr. Beasley refused to pay,
and he is everlastingly right. Poll
holders do not deserve, and should not
receive any pay for their services. In
a number of the counties no bill was
presented for this service, but in
half dozen of them these citizens un
der a "rule" of the Executive Commit
tee exercised their rights and demand
ed pay. If Mr. Beasley were a mil
lionaire he would be justified in re
fusing to pay one cent. In the lhird
District Mr. Charles R. Thomas de
clines to enter the race though he has
a strong following in the district, be
cause under the "rule he will be fin
ed a thousand dollars for making the
race whether he wins or loses. How
does it come about that in this free
country candidates must submit to
this outrage .' buch a precedent will
mean that a man with a family to
support and blessed with only moder
ate means will be ruled out of all po
litical campaigns and only the rich can
run. We honor Mr. Beasley for
smashing a rule so odious and so con
trary to the American spirit and if
Mr. Thomas wants to run we would
not blame .him to run like Beasley
did, and meet only the necessary ex
penses incident to the campaign. It
ought to be posible for any man the
people desire to make the race for
any office though he may not have an
extra shirt to his back! Some of our
finest representatives have been poor
men, and it is unjust and unwise to
throw any impediment in their nath-
way,and levy tax on such men or their
friends and for purposes wholly un
necessary. Glory to Beasley! He has
the proper conception of the rights of
an American citizen and he is quite
able and quit willing to give a reason
for the faith that is in him that will
be accepted by the people and that
will put his foes to confusion!
