Death occurred at the Bariov home.. 207 south National avenue, wnue she was surrounded bv her family. Death was peaceful, the deceased simply lapsing into that eternal sleep.

The political inconsistency of the Kansas City Journal is even being noticed by the republicans in Fort Scott where this journalistic effort is circul- lated. Sunday s issue contained a two-column speech of Hoadley, in which Folk was denounced as a hypo crit and a man of corrupted tenden cies, wnen everybody witn any judg ment at all knows that Folk is the best man in Missouri and knorvs also that he will be elected. To make the in consistency complete the speech of Bourke Cochran, the best speaker in the United States and a man of nation al note, which was made in Kansas City Saturday.was not even referred to. It is also noticed that the Journal also refuses to publish both sides of the Kelly boodling matter that is now before the people of this state. Russell Wallace and George Harpold had an experience with a balky horse the other day that will linger long in their memories. They hitched up a horse of a disposition aforesaid and started out to teach that animal to be tame. All went well until the old fair grounds was reached when there was trouble.

AC- BLLIEVES THERE'S SHORTAGE Says Kelly Could Remove Stint by . Explaining Garden City Shortage. Never Complained Before. Topeka, Kas., Oct. 24. Goverour Bailey today gave out the following statement relative to the state treasury investigation: "The persistent effort that is being made to make It appear that the iu-vestigation of the state treasury that is now going on, is prompted by the revenge and for the purpose of defeea- ing the republican state ticket Is bo unfair and untrue that I am prompted to make this statement. "When the state accountant was at work, checking up the various state institutions, which he has done, an' when he checked up the bank com missioner's office ,which he has done, I never heard of any com plant of persecution, either for political or personal reasons, but from the time he commenced o check up 'the state in urer's office claim of persecution ot Kelly, has been constantly made. "The investigation of the treasurer's office was commenced in obedience to the demand of a large number of people of the state and a number of leading newspapers of the state. A great many who believed that the charges against Kelly were false, said an examination of the treasury ehould be made and thus silence the charge of dishonesty that were being made by his political enemies. "About the time the accountant went into his office I had a talk with Kelly and he assured me we would find nothing wrong unless It might b some little mistake In the bo k-keepiiig of which he knew nothing. Suppose this had proven to be the case, it would have given Mr. Kelly the best campaign document possible. AM agree that it would have been the report of the state accountant that iiis records were correct and all right. And I say to the people of Kansas, would more gladly have published that fact, than the one I am compell ed to publish. "The fault does not rest with tne state accountant nor with his assistant, neither can It be honestly charged against the governor who ordered the investigation. The fault rests alone upon those who have Lad Charge of the state treasury, during the time shortages and embezzlements have taken place. "Mr. Rowett, the state acountant and his assistant, .Mr. Buckinghom.are competent and honest men with lire long reputations back of them. Mr. Buckinghom is a member of the E. 1. Toxey Auditing Co. They have done, and are doing, their duty fearlessly and honestly. If their findings are not true, they can be disproven in a day by any competent accountant. I feel absolutely sure the shortages they have reported are true, and no shortages will be reported in the future until positive proof of their existence is had' It Koema to me that Kelly could explain at once his connection with the Garden City matter by naming the man ol hom he re. ceived coupons which he tent to New iorK ior collection and to whom lie paid money he received lor the sain-Lntil he does this, he cannot blame the people of Kansas for believing ae has violated his trust and that he is guilty of embezzlement a h, oy the record. w.
