Mr. Ward is a novice in the print-1
ing business. Yet he presumes too I
much for inserting his bill intorenub
lican political matters. He asserts
that TnE Chief has been attempting to
draw him into matters which is of no
concern to him, al! of which is a di
rect privirication as he well knows.
What we have said in regard to Mr.
Hoover's announcement in the Hel
met is absolutely true. We have not
denied Mr. Hoover the privilege to
announce in whatsoever paper he
p'eases, but we do state that it was
impolitic for him to announce through
a democratic medium to the exclusion
of republican papers, if he wished
the support of republicans. That's
all. The Chief fights for what it
thinks is right, and has no sympathy
for afciiau who perches himself upon
his office chair humped up like a toad
and is afraid to say his . u'i's his own.
As to his assertion that "the Helmet
is a clean high-minded paper", we
arc of the opinion that the old
proverb that '-self praise is half scan
dal" can be fittingly applied to his
assertion. If Mr. Hoover can stand
the support of the Helmet we certain
ly have no objection . but we shall
still have our opinion on the subject

body of the '-Big 3" that some of
your readers, though -al-bright"
didn't know where the '-submission"
tail began, and thought I was a sort
o' step-father of the whole outfit.
True s ou was quite explicit in the
remark, "read what Mr. Butler says,
which we hereto annex," but in these
troublous times, when, not all, are
"al-bricht" you must be even more

When traveling north, east, south or

patronizing a strictly first class line,
The Chicago, Kansas &. Nebraska Rail-

This thoroughfare is the people s fa
vorite, because it is reliable, safe and
pleasant and with its limited flyer to
Chicago, and connection with all the
fast trains to St. Louis make it univer
sally popular, and the route which all
well posted travelers take.
Its passenger trains were built ex
pressly for this line by the Pullman
Talace Car Co., which is a guarantee
that they are as perfect and complete
in every detail as the best taste and
most thorough experience can suggest,
and no convenience for the comfort
and service of the traveling public has
been overloosed. In addition to its
regular passenger equipment, there is
in service a line of superb reclining
chair cars; no pains or expense baring
been spared to make these cars the
most restful ana comfort-assuring 've
hicles of their class in America.
Holders ol Srst class tickets can occupy
seats in these cars free. A colored
