Tredway SiTceeedlDir Him. Subject to formal confirmation by the commissioners, Mrs. Myler, county superintendent, has named J. T, Tredway as county truancy ofllcer, G. W. Smith, who has been serving in that capacity, has become a victim' to the call of the land and has moved to south Houston, Texas, where his brother-in-law H. H. Jones has been located for some ti^, and ^11 engage in truck farming.^ As The -vacancy canm in. the middle of the term and Mr. Tredway's former ex- .'perience made him peculiarly fitted tor the job, he has been named to fill "out Smith's unexpired term. LICENSED FOUR WEDDISGS. Probate Judge. Smith admitted today 'that he bad begun to feel a bit ner>'ous lest the Democratic administration was going to prove a daniper to the matrimonial business, he having; had -no applications lor licenses between -Tuesday and Saturday. But Saturday they oame'along in goodly array as follows: ' Willard Bibens. of Kincaid,'and Lola -1. Smtth, of LaHarpe. Howard Allison Jones and Ina May .Bemer, both of lola. ^.. Emaniiel Erlcsoo and . Cbriattna Haflpo^^^both of Bladiore. There jls a law on the Kansas Statute books which authorizes the board of county commissioners of any .county to pension blind persons living in the coanty. The commissioners may grant such pensions up to $30 a month, but If that sum or more is asked, the question must be siibmitted to a rote of the people. Bourbon county passed on the question at Tuesday's election, five persons having asked the commissioners for pensions under the law. The board rejected all applications, although the sums asked were less than $30. The petitioners then asked for $30 pensions in order to get beyond the. board's authority. All five of the Itensinns were voted, the city favoring tliem and the country opposing them. The commissioners novt contend that the law is unconstitt^tional and a tost case may be brought' to bead ott the $150 a month pensions. The Ft. Scott Tribune says: The five persons who a^ed for pen sions of $30 a month were voted such pensions by heavy vcles In their favor in the five city warifs. Almost with ont exception the country precincts gaVe majorities against the pensions. Miss Reddinger was voted a pension by a majority of 572; police Jiidge Johnson by 233; Mr. Hogan by 498; Brainard Shaw by 5(;8: and Mr. Hill, blind colored man by 470. There was some opposition to giving Judge Johnson a pension, partly because of the conduct of his office and partly because he is drawing $50 a month in that office. But in every ward he was given a big majority The fourth ward where liye the most people displeased with his administration, he was given the largest majority—182. There was some intimation today that the board of county commissioners would refuse to grant these-pensions on the ground that the law is unconstitutional. There appears to be little question but that the validity cf the law will have to be tested. Doubtless the five applicants would have asked for a less pension if the law had permitted a less pension to he voted on. The county commission ers may allow pensions up to $30. But applications for over $30 must be submitted to popular vote. The board declined to' allow pensions under $: and the applicants went before the people tor $30. cm HE IS l§ V BUTHEHAS HOPES HE DECLARES, uhWETER, TH.iT HE )nLL COJITEST THE CASE. MR.

"I shall cobtest the case and have confidence. I shall win by close to three thousand. Several thousand ballots were thrown out through misunderstanding over marking. Most of these were for me and 1 am sure the electlpn rommls- sioners will permit them to be counted." .'The State .loumal table gives Hodges a lead of 274 over Capper.

Did you know that a change of eight votes would have defeated the equal suffrage amendment in this county? Well, it would. The vote for the entire county stood 2304 in favor of the amendment anj 2290 against It, a totel of 14. majority for the measure. And an Interesting thing about the vote is that the countrj- was opposed to It apparently more than the towns, lola, for instance, gave a majority of 158 for the amendment, which the rest of tl country cut down to a sajl little 14. J. P. Duncan and O. M. Nelson were elected Justices of the Peace in lola; W. J. Ihrig and T. S. Ball were elected con8tal>tes.

Church services conducted by the Rev. W. M. Elledge, pastor of tbe-Congregational church of this city. Were begun, and as the result of revlwl meetings, a form church organization was adopted, members to join the town church of their preference, but to unite in inaln- talping a Sunday school and regular worship at the community house. Today some twenty adult converts of the revival were received into Dr. Elledge's church, the local congregation entertaining at a dinner after the communion service. The sectarian rural churches are being abandoned and; there is a growing call for these | union organizations.
