The people think he has done thing;:. They see actual results of his work. The other day Congressman Gritty- 5 , of Georgia, one of ihe minority lender? of ihc house, said in a speech that Congressman Mnrdoek hail saved the taxpayers of this nation four million dollars this ye.'.r. And ihe work has not yet well begun; his mail-weighing, proposition will fave ihe American people five million dollars a year from now on. He won hi? point fighting Speaker Cannon. What other K.msas congressman, truckling to Speaker Cannon, has done half nv; much? It doesn't pay to knuckle down i» Cannon. lie is a vain, stupid, arrogant old moss-back, and if congressmen from Kansas think Cannon- is bigger than the people, the lime has come to change the congressmen congressmen from Kansas.

The Kansas to\vn has the misfortune misfortune of being next door neighbor to Kansas City, Mo., a much larger town, where saloons are open and where crime has long been rampant; there is no stronger barrier between them iban the slate line, and when vicious citizens of the Missouri lawn find that they an; being searched searched by the police, their t'trst impulse impulse is to cross the state line, and lake refuge in Ule. Kansas town. This will give them at least ihe benefit of delay, if it does not prove .111 inviolable sanctuary. Kansas City, Kansas, is therefore the dumping dumping ground for all sorts and conditions conditions of rascals from her Missouri neighbor, and of course these rascals rascals ply their nofarions trades in i heir new stamping grounds, until rounded up. The Kansas town suffers in the same way from drunkenness. The c.liief of police says: "There are i went j--four saloons in one block ¡list across the stale line, the main road in Kansas Ciiy, Kansas, and men who drink'there start for ¡heir homes in Kansas."
