Correspondence)- As was expected
the reimblicau organs of the stato
have joined in a chorus with a view to
convincing the people that the present
democratic legislature is engaged in 11
saturnalls of extravagance, and that
tho administration of (lovornor Shut
lenborger is going to be vastly tnoro
expensive than that of (lovornor Shel
don. The g o. p. charges aro made in
a general way, and tho aforesaid
organs studiously refrain making any
comparisons of a dcllulto nature.
The leglslaturo of 1007 appropriated
SiloO for contingent expenses b'f tho
governor's olllce. (lovornor Sheldon
leftSSy.OS in this fund to run for three
months Tho most of the 5200 was
spent in sending out telegrams to
members of the legislature asking
about tho advisability of calling an
oxtra session to enact a county option
The same session appropriated a
total of SO.OOO for the maintaiuencc and
lopalr of the executive mansion. This
whs SI0U a month, (lovornor Sheldon
loft S2:.2.:ii) in this fund to maintain
the mannl'in for practically three
months. At the same rate of expense
Governor Shallonbcrger would exhauso
tho fund lu two weeks and two days.
Tho same session appropriated 1,500
forollloe expenses in the executive de
partment. Governor Sheldon left
ISOJo in this fund. This isuoteuotitrli
to pay postage until the beginning of
tho fiscal year, to" say nothing of the
necessary printing. It will cost not
less than S'-'-Ti to supply the governor
with thcprintlng ho must have.
It is awfully easy to make 11 record
for economy by 01 eating a deficiency
and leaving It ton succeeding adminis
tration to pay.
Another sample of "economy" is
found In the Hureau of I abor ami In
dustrial hint 1st les. That department
is required to do with two people and
S 1,000 a year what Kansas provides
fourteen people and upwards of S 10,0(10
a year to do. And oven , at this tho
board of public landb and buildings,
after exhausting aii appropriation of
S7.0T0 for the improvement, repair and
care of the capitol building, took $282
from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to
"repair and Improve" the btato house.
Thus is "economy" practiced.
Tho (1. O. 1 organs are making a
fearful howl about tho present legis
lature's disregard of tho "Sheldon law"
limiting the number of houso and
sonate employees. Yet tho very ses
sion that enacted tho "Sholdon law"
was equally guilty, and tho session
following was ovon more guilty. But
no mention is made of this fact by tho
G. O. P. organs. They forget the fact
that any growing business finds its
necessary to increase tho number of
employees, and the republican legis
latures that made tho grand steal play
of limiting tho number of employees
quietly ignored it in order to secure
sufficient help to transact tho nocos
sary business. That is tho measure of
"economy" practiced under a repub
lican administration. It thundered
"economy" in tho index, but failed to
practice it in tho contents.
Dr. McKim, atato votoronarlan under
Governor Sheldon, is going to luve a
lot of ugly charges to explain concern
ing tho management of his department
Tho figures and the facts are all on file
but before they aro given to tho public
Dr. McKim will bo given an oppor
tunity to explain. It Is not only a case
of nepotism, but it appears to be a case
af rank injustice to a widow who is
struggling to support herself and tvj
lermined to investigate, for themsel
ves and notdelegate tho dulv to police
man or detectives. They received posi
tlve information that a "joint' was
established in the cupula over tho
second hand store in tho Dow biild
lug. Tho two councilman immediately
proceeded to make a raid, Being un
acquainted with tho private stair way
they entered tho room through the
door which seemed tho only one which
permitted ingress or egress But the
living hod departed Thero were only
chips, cards, tables and a few couts in
sight. Those articles went Into tho
scrap pilo in a fow seconds
Tho owners can rccolvo damages by
calling on tho two councilman in tucs-
tion. They aro determined to stamp
out gambling and should there be
others engaged in this hazardous un
dertaking we would suggest that they

Occastonaly as one passes down the
street he will heir some slighting re
mark made relative to the Commercial
club. Hut It must be apparont to any
one conversant with the life of our
city that movements of any kind per
taining to civic allairs are nocossurly
slow. Homo was not built in a day
and it is unfair to expect any body of
men to turn the country over every
twenty four hours. If nothing more
has been accomplished by this organ
ization than tho promotion of a better
understanding among business men
that Is sufllcicnt for its existence.
But has accomplished more than that
and its present efforts to establish an
alfalfa mill hero should receive the
hearty co-operation of every loyal citi
zen. That a v jmmerciul olulis 11 uecccs
sary adjacent to any city needs no
proof. By pulling togethi r this par
ticular city can bo mado much nioro
profitable and attractive. Or to put it
hotter let us u'o tho words of Carlyle:
"For not this man nor that man, but
all men make up mankind and their
united tasks, tho task of mankind."
It is not this merchant nor that type
setter which makes up this city but
the combined inhabitants of the entire
community go to make up Bed Cloud.

somothing tho resultant force will be

person may bo tho man of the hour.
Toko for example, some years ago the
best engineers of this country were en
gaged In erecting a large bridge. A
large crowd had gathered. The high
est intellects along engineering lines
were in charge All went well till the
tlmo camo for roplaeing the most im
portant piece into position when it
was discovered that the ropes lacked
an inch of being long enough. Con
sternation roigned supreme and for
tho llfeof them those onginoers trained
as they were knew not what to do.
For an hour tho immense weight hung
suspended in the air but thero was
"nothing doing." Along came a sailor
and seeing the condition of things
cried out: "Wot the ropes." That was
enough and tho bridge was built. So
here every man has his place and one
cannot tell where tho host information
will come from.
