We would say in this connection
that the Dove brothers, Edward,
David, and Bethnel Dove, are in
no wise connected with the unfor
tunate affair, and these men are
gentlemen above reproach, and cit

occurrence and the connection their
brother John had with the affair.

A FEW PLAIN WORDS.
We supposed that our editorial
note in the Wwt Sidb last week
would be sufficient to convince any
reasonable man or woman that we
eertainlyhad not the slightest ill
will toward Monmouth or any of her
enterprises. The fact is we have
always rejoiced in Monmouth's pros
perity, and would be foolish If we
did not. Noons can gainsay the
fact, that for the last ten or fifteen
years we have worked "tooth and
toenail" for the school at Mon
mouth. The people oflndepeud-
up the school hitertwta there. Yet
it has been noticeable for the hwt
year or two, that there bus becu m
element in MonmouUi that hits not
reciprocated m heartily as the
merits of the facts would demand.
Week before last the Wkst Bids
IncidonUlly copying Mr. Rarree's
scathing valedictory, or rather his
autobiographical obituary, said,
that a newspaper of any preten
tions could not survive in Mon
mouth. We said this from a buM
ness standpoint wholly, aud not
from a selfish ouc, for the .Wkst
Sidk's patronage has always been
just as good when there was a
paper In Monmouth, as when, there
was none. A newspaper, to live
In any small town for any length of
time, must be ulmldlMd. The
West Sims was subsidised for
years In Independence, and has been
able only for the last few years to
stand alone financially, aud to toll
the truth, there are not "lullllous
in it" now. Now when we made
a simple statement of facts, some
of our Monmouth people flew luto
a rage, aud created such a "tem
pest In a teapot," that we almost
despaired of getting out another
issue of the West Side. They
traduced and abused us, they ma
ligned and boycotted us, the lmt
of which is a criminal offence, they
went from one to another to get
them to stop the paper, they told
alt kinds of tales about us, and Raid
that,, "the Wkut Side and the Inde
pendence people never lost a chance
to give Monmouth a sHot.'.-. And
they also said that we tried to draw
biwliiwa from Monmouth during
the district institute liwt March,
by giving, very actively, motor
tickets free to take people to aud
from Independence to the institute.
Now forlieamnce ceases to be a
virtue junt here, and we say that
my man or woman that tells or
peddles such statements as the
Above, utters knowingly falsehood
.is black as night and no one but nn
u multigated fraud will do it.
Further, we will give 100 lu gold
to any man or woman iu Monmouth
or elsewhere, that will show
one - scintilla of fact or one
line ever printed in the WemtSibk
under its present management
which was in the least derogatory
to Monmouth. We feel it our dut y
to defend ourselves from the mali
cious attacks of boycotters and
defamers. The citUeua of Inde
pendence during that institute put
ten dollars in Monmouth to ten
cents that the people of Monmouth
put into Independence. The motor
company generously donated 1000
or more tickets to help the work
along. President Campbell, Prof
essor Powell, aud Muss Maggie
Butler, who were on the committee
know the above charge is fulm.
The institute was to have been
held at Independent;, but at the
earnest solicitations of President
Campbell it was changed to Mon
mouth without one dissenting voice
from Independence. No such a
thought ever entered our brain tlmn,
nor of any one In Monmouth,exncpt
it might hare entered into a thimble
ful of pulp, which Borne people
have, instead of brains. The Wkht
side is the only paper that ever
did give careful and current notices
of the State Normal school, and
ever since we took charge, we have
expended from f'2,50 to f 10,00 per
sreek to chrouiclo the prosperity of
that growing town, This is not
the first time we have len
"snubbed," but it is about the lust
time that such a thing cau take
place unnoticed. The people of
Independence are about ready to
call a halt, until repairs are
made. This may lm realized
further along the line. Personally
e put $100 into Monmouth hwt
fear, and expect to spend twice
that amount there this coming year,
and the thanks we get is "boy
cotthlm, boycott him." , Tho in-
grate is tlio most despicable person
on earth, and while we know that
sentiments of good morals prevail
In Monmouth,and just such a spirit
as should environ the young ladies
and gentlemen who come there
from all points of tho compass to
receive an education; yet we do
know that there are a few who live
In Monmouth that ought to bo
expelled from that society as a
healthy body expells all poisonous
excrescences from itself, up to
date, there are three prominont(t)
people who have boycotted our
paper, and in the same time we
have doubled over and over again
that number in' new. subscribers,
as our books show. We propose
to stand by the great school interests
at Monmouth and all of its enter
prises, notwithstanding it has a
few bigots and ingratos, as all towns
do in any country. We would say
in concluding our remarks for this
week, that the threats that have
coino to us ao not custom our
repoBe, and you will find us as
serene as a summer's morn. Now
we have said nothing but what was
true, and challenge successful con
tradiction. The .Mmcwjcr," the
Democrat, and the , rmjrm, all
were once at Monmouth, but are
no more, The Democrat had 173
subscribers all told, and the Prog
rent had less, locally, and wo pub-
