THE FAIR PEACE DECLARED. The Editors of Sumner County Eat Salt, and Many Other Things, at the Same Time and Place. COUNTY EDITORIAL ASSOCIATION.

In the office of the best mayor of the best city of the best county of the best state of the best nation of the best continent of the best planet of the solar system, Saturday met the best looking, most modest, most invincibie, most humorous, most earnest, most varied and invariable, rain or shine, hot or cold, all-round lot of newspaper hustlers on the sod or stubble of the universe--and the police took to the woods. The white wings of peace fanned the fires of fraternity and patriotism to welding heat, and the barbed wire fences of politics were melted into a chain that bound them all into one common corral with a band wagon at the gate and fodder in the trough. Mayor Savage welcomed the pencil shovers to the city with a speech that made them swell up and look as bashful as a woman caught whistling Tara-ra-boom-de-aye. He said that the welfare of Sumner county was in their hands--and some of the boys looked as if they would like to stick it in their pockets. In fact, that is what they were here for.

In promoting the prosperity of Sumner county the editors feel that they are entitled to a little more commission than they have been able to secure--hence, they, organize for the purpose of promoting their own interests as publishers, while heralding to the world the marvelous riches and opportunities of the favored communities they serve. R. T. Simons, of the Caldwell News, responded to the mayor's address with a few pertinent remarks dignity of the press and thanking the mayor for his kindly welcome and good wishes. Mr.

Simons considers the editorial profession a leading factor in moral and social purity, as well as a power in business and political affairs. Captain Gilmore, the veteran editor of the Standard, was unanimously chosen chairman, and E. L. Cline, the moral agitator, kindergarten evangelist and eternal enemy of the cigarrette, was elected secretary. The fourteen papers of the county were all represented except the Geuda Springs Herald and Milan Press, both of which papers sent letters of regret with a promise to stand by the actions of the association.

Committees were appointed to prepare a constitution and by-laws, devise a schedule of rates for job printing, and to recommend ures in regard to foreign advertising. After this the meeting was resolved into an informal discussion of various matters pertaining to mutual interests. Upon adjournment for dinner, the editors were treated with a happy surprise by Caman's military band which met them at the foot of the stairs and transported their souls to realms harmony while escorting their appetites to the Arlington house, there forget for a while that life was made for any harsher pursuit than feasting and music. Newspaper men not much given to speech-making, the band played to a silent audience, notes which were impressed upon memory (instead of the usual note book) and created varied impressions that will appear in Sumner county newspapers this week. The afternoon was devoted to business.

No definite conclusions were made in the matters of particular portance to the publishers; but meeting resulted in much general good. The association adjourned to meet again in Wellington, Saturday, 19th, at which time the business gun will be finished, and a permanent for organization effected. The matter of establishing a ready print house in Sumner county was cussed and a committee appointed investigate the feasibility of such the undertaking, and report at the meeting.

And be it further Resolved, That weextend our thaks appreciation to the citizens of and Wellington who so kindly tendered us the use of carriages for our drives of inspection about the beautiful city. In the "cool of the evening," just before the coming of the gloaming, a number of citizens brought out their carriages and tendered the editors a drive about the city. This was a refreshing treat which was greatly enjoyed by these practical philosophers who accept all the good things that come their way, and are thankful, not only for their own joys, but for the enjoyment of others as well.

SQUIBS. The Mail reporter got the first whack at writing them up. We have it---even if it breaks up the association--McDonald, of the Oxford Register, best looking editor present. The editors of Wellington are the tallest--but the little men are the fattest. Branscombe, of the New Era, believes that business sense earns more cents than sentiment loses.

lington hotel register is a composite mystery. Duncan, of the Argonia Clipper, is one of the kind of editors the mere sight of whom would cool a mad subscriber down to zero. He keeps up his muscle by exercise on a G. Washington hand press. Wells, of the Caldwell Advance, is a quiet man, with a somewhat studious cast of countenance.

He is making a neat, clean paper. The papers and the men from the outside towns allocompare favorably with the county seat papers, as well as with the live county of Sumner. J.

He is the youngest editor in the county, and neither attempts to soar in Byronic rhyme no cuts the throat of his brother, Able.

G. L. Reed, of the Mulvane Record, has a way of his own, and has his patrons thoroughly educated. Ho would make a good missionary to send among unenlightened merchants who have not accepted the salvation of advertising. We shall not say anything personal about the Wellington editors, lest we meet them on the street before they have had time to digest the remarks.
