Word ha* been received here by
friend*. thatottis Miser, out at Spo

Killy Sunday, the noted evangelist,
is turning Wichita, Kansas, inside
out from a religious standpoint, and
his epigrams, as usual, are somewhat
startling, unconventional, and by
the way very wholesome from a truth,
ful standpoint. Here is one: ‘ Lots
of people are put in as officials of
churches because they have several
suits of clothes and a fat bank ac
count, when they wauld look better
in penitentiary suits.”
liemocrata are getting into the
game early. Last week, both John
II. Moore head of Falls City and R.
L Metcalfe, editor of Bryan's Com
moner, announced their intention of
becoming candidates for the demo
cratic nomination for governor. Be
sides these. Charley Pool of Tecumseh
Senator OlHs of Ord and Senator Volp
of Scribner are getting their running
shoes on in the mad race for a nom
ination. to HiS which one will have
the lionor of being defeated by Gov.
A k) rich.
The Northwestern has received a
pathetic appeal from Charley W. Pool
of Tecumseh. who is a democrat can
didate for governor, not to swat iiim
too hard over his candidacy, and
telling how many thousand or less
years he lias been a printer and editor
and worked for the salvation of the
democratic party, and incidentally to
furnish him with the wherewith to
wage his unholy battle for Aunty and
her ancient admirers. And this ap
peal to a black-hearted republican
newspaper opponet as well! Horrors!
Let the members of the republican
gridiron club see that he does not
make a touch-down. He has earned
defeat by his own confession.
Teddy Roosevelt might as well sur
render. There seems to be a deter
mined effort to make him take his
medicine in the shape of another
term as president of Cncle Sam’s do
main The demand is coming by
Mtads, companies and battalions, and
is bound to push him up the presiden
tial San .1 uan hill. Teddy says he is
not a candidate. So lie said when
lie was made to swallow the vice
presidential nomination a few years
ago. But lie surrendered then, and
there is a possibility that over
whelming public sentiment may cause
his surrender tills time. He was
uever known to surrender to a foe,
but was made to yeild to friends then
and may have to do so again. This
is neither "standpat” nor so-called
