KAXSAS A>D THE STAR ••Kansas," says the morning K. C. Times, "I>oes not belong to any political party." Whereupon It proceeds to inform the disorganized voters of the Stat*" that they sdiould vote for lloosevelt for PresiU.nt, Hodges for (Wivernor a nd Stubbs for Senator. Which Is truly interesting. If the voters of Kansas'have not been completely disorganized, jmrty organization ilisrupti'^1 and the way paved for the Star and n few selllsh poItJcIans to win their wishes In the absence of united action by Kansas voters. It Is no faulty of the Star and Stubbs. Roth have preached Independent voting and l>oth have striven to disrupt the Re- puWlcan party which has been dominant in the state. The logical result of the success of their efforts to free the Kansas voters from the "boss rule" is to hand the state over to the diction' of the Star, a Missouri, free-trade. Bull Moose bully which Kansas City has spurned a score of times. It will he a grand day for when the Star gets the control id .=eoks and bullies its creatures into busservionce In order that they may hold office. Fro that Is what the Star will do. I,ook at Stubbsl His chief care Is to trim exactly to suit the Star. And In a little while. If the Star succeeds, Kansas voters will be allowed to pay salaries to the men holding office, but the Star will make the Kansas slate and Kansas voters will not be consulted. Ry all means: I>>t the Missouri People (in the Star office) Rule in Kansa.<. Vera Ortiz, Oct. 19.—The rebel forc- »>s in possession of this city have made every preparation for an attack by Uie federals and this Is expected at any motuent. Two columns of federals arrived yesterday within fifteen miles of the city. The strength of the ad vancing force is hardly greater than that of the rebel garri.«on, but the government troops are at a disadvant ago as to artillery, owing to the impossibility of transporting cannon over the great sand banks surrouudinK the town. It is expected that General Zozaya who is In comnmnd of one of the loyal columns will join (he rebels when he gets into touch with the rebel troops. General Geronlino Trevino, commander of the federal forces at Monterey, who resigned yesterday. Is said to be favored by many military men for provisional president. STBAWS. KAR .
