That is the question well ask themselves. From the standpoint of merely party patronage the result of course has JAMES H. 01Y SPOKE AT BA.SSETT EACH PARTV WILL MAKE BI« EF been evil and only evil and that con- SATl'RD.iY XIGHT. tinually to the Republican Party.

Indeed they havo been vastly more brazen and have sone to greater length to use the public business to build up Democratic party for cs.nmple. When this n .^mocratlr the Repub^ean party in power Is f.io majority fir.,t came Into omce there ^"^^^ was no Democratic paper which had been In existence long enougb to be qualified under the Xrii' for appointment as oBlclal paper. But this patronage was not to be rllowed to escape from the Democratic party and so (he ncmocratle board connived ai the boldest possible trickery, the pur- cha.se of the name of a rewspaper which had been published more than a year aind which name was used for no other purpose than to give the Democratic board a pitiful pretext for appointing the Index the official paper. To argue that the Index was a year old merely, because it assumed the name of a paper of that ago was as silly .IS it would bo to argue that an infant is SO years old because it is endowed with the n.ame of its father. If a Republican board had over done inyihing so bold a.s that the people, regardless of partj'. would havo raised up and demanded its removal .'"rom office. Not only was the printing bestowed thus upon a paper which had no legal right to it. but it was let without advertising for bids and at rates which would have provided in ^Iher papers a circulation ten times reater. But even tins was not the worst. Not content with violating the spirit if the law and with robbing the people of the publicity which they arc entitled to receive touching the county business, this Democratic board ap- uolnted as the purchasing agent of the county tbe principal owner of this napcr, the Democratic County Attor- ne.v. Upon one man. therefore, was laid Uie duly of ordering the county nrlnftng. of doing the. work,'; and of auditing his own accounts. Will anybody maintain that such an arrangc- nient is in the interest of good business management?

Farmers Apply Too Late for Pheac ants Sent Here. \ Tho farmers of A'len county hav.» suddenly come to the conclu.slon that they want some of tho phea .iianT .s which were .shipped to the county clerk by State Game Warden Del Travis. Mr. Culbcrtson. when he first received them, asked for volunteers from among the farmers to care for the birds until March, the nesting season, when they are to be released. Only one farmer signified a sire to take a pair of the birds. Mr. CuJbenson therefore proceeded to have a cage made In which to keep the pheasants until spring. The cage was built and set up Saturday. Late Saturday and today nearly a dozen applications came in but since the cafec Has already been made, the pheasants -will be kept at tho court house until spring when they will be distributed among the farmer.s who applied for them.
