We notice that republican post-
masters are regularly resigning their
positions of official trust and that
many of them state for the reason of
devoting all their time to their news-
paper work. We understand there Is
no Joke about the resigning feature
of the news notes, but we do ques-
tion the newspaper phase of the
statements. No man ever resigned a
fat federal Job to run a country news-
ran onto the following last week in
the Brown County (Kansas) World,
which Is self-explanatory: "The duty
on print paper has been taken off and
newspaper men are waiting to see
if the price of paper will be cheap-
ened. It doubtless will not be, but the
revenue lost to the government by
the duty tax will be made up by the
Income tax. If the foreign paper
makers had to pay duty the Income
tax on home folks would be unnec-
essary." As we understand it, no

It is understood that J. Fred New-
Hom Is using the treasurer's office as
his political headquarters and is
\lgorously denying that he ever wrote
the letters as printed in this paper of
two weeks ago, alleging that the Her-
ald lied In saying that he did write
them. Everything this paper printed
was copied authentically and can be
substantiated beyond a shadow of a
doubt, letters or petitions. Further-

the Register Isn't the only big paper
which is going in for the move. Nor
is it the only business. There isn't
a big commercial concern on earth
which wouldn't welcome the move,
barring the breweries and attendant

prohibition may not be at hand, but
it is coming, certain as sundown. O,
hasten, glad day!

som circulated that same petition,
among the courthouse officials.
We understand a few names were se-
cured on a second petition, but that
waa never filed with the pardon board
and the^e is no record of its having
been used. Possibly It was carried
up to the governor's office, but after
the governor was sounded it was de-
cided useless to spring it. The Her-
ald knows exactly what it was doing,
So do the men it showed up in the
case. Just how this paper got its in-
formation is certainly worrying the
gang, but for the present that is a
matter sacred to the Herald. The

can depend upon yhat the Herald
gave you, for it even proves itself.
LIQUOIt THE BIG ISSUE NOW
In hU paper, the Iola (Kansas)
Register, ex-Representative Charles
F. Stytt, devotes his leading editorial
to prohibition. He says the time for a
national anti-saloon law has come.
He says In part: "If the annual per
capita consumption of Intoxicating li-
quor could be reduced all over the
United States from about $30
to 11.25 that it is in Kansas, with the
corresponding reduction In murder
and assault and theft and all the
long catalog of crime that follows In
the trail of drink, if the loss in effi-
ciency through the use of liquor
could be stopped, if the heart-ache
and heart-break, the wreck of lives of
Heal Tax Paying Time
Taxes have been the one absorbing
feature of events in town the past
few days, strangers from far and
wide coming across with the kale.
And, when you speak of that said
kale, it reminds a fellow that be has
to have a bunch of it on his person
this year. Some precincts may fall
below the mark of highest taxes this
rail, but most of them are getting a
stronger dose than ever. Guymon
township has the highest ever and
from all the reform promised you
might have imagined that it was go-
ing to be a practice of seeing how
much things cold be cut down.
You know what was promised you in
this respect, you know what you are
paying for, and you know what haB
been done. Isn't there any way un-
der the heavens to get some relief
from this burdensome taxatisn, par-
ticularly when all that Is required is
a little business management or af-
H. S. Notes
The Optima boys and girls basket
ball teams came to our city Saturday
and were defeated in both games by
our local teams. The Guymon boys
won by a score of 23 to 4 and the
girls 19 to 2. Farr was there, as
usual, for the boys' forward, and
scored 17 of our points. McNutt
played half of the game with Farr
at forward and Hunt played^the other
half. Both played good ball. Big Joe
Nance was getting them coming and
going at center and didn't allow his
opponent to score. Langston and Lis-
man played guards and the score will
tell you how well they did their work.
Heine Klooz and Johp Gill each ref-
ereed one half while the other was
umpire. Some tew little things came
up on which they did not agree very
well, and some of Gill's decisions did
not exactly suit the audience, but all
disputes were settled without blood-
shed. The lineup was as follows.

In the girls' game Voiles and Allen
played forward and both showed up
well. Edna Stillman played her first
game with the locals and did well at
center. Margaret Daniels played a
good game at running center, as
usual. The Leeman girls held their
opponent down without a field goal.
There has not been a field scored over
them in the last two games. The line-
up was as follows:

evening in the Methodist church. A
large number were present who
joined in extending the glad hand of
welcome to the family and who en-

course dinner was set, which was
served after toasts, and the blowing
of candles. Test games of the knowl-

prise was complete and "Peggie'' says
