Why I'm a "Bull Moose." Why You Should Vote the
the Progressive Ticket.
Honest intent with weakness never
made a man. Tho emblem of the Pro
gressive Party (tho Bull Moose) is
quite as honorable as either the ' "braz
en ass" or the monster brute elephant.
The "bull moose" carries no excess
baggage in front, does not wear his
wings on the side of his head, nor kick
out from behind like a mule. Hence
to be called a "Bull Moose" is no dis
honor. The progressive party represents
tho best interests of the people. It is
championed, propagated and vouch
safed by the most honorable, best
posted, and greatest men of our na
tion. It is a preponderance of evidence
within itself to all the people. Read
its platform; compare it with any of
the others, and you will say that it is
the greatest and best platform ever
given to the American people. It rep
resent a just and righteous cause to a
great and industrious nation.
During my entire life and business
career I have never before taken any
concerted interest or action in politics
and never before since, Abraham
Lincoln's day has the people of this
country been face to face with condi
tions as they now exist. Politico is the
appellation of the most monumental,
and greatest business of the twentieth
century. It is a vast corporation. A
federation of all products of the soil,
manufactiued products, business, labor
and capital. It is an amalgamation of
every resource of this United Kingdom
of which every man and woman is a
stockholdei. In this vast business of
political government, each one and all
of us own equal rights.
It is for every voter and his duty to
exerciso his right of fianchise. The
rich and powerful give to the cause of
politics not only their vote, but their
time and energy, as well as vast sums
of money. What does the common
people give? Why my friend, not hard
ly their votes. I ask you, is it any
wonder that the American people are
governed by Boss Rule and Corporate
Greed. Is it any wonder that tho lab
oring man and woman are forced to
work 12 to 16 hours a day? and the
farmer takes what he can get for his
products and both pay the other fellows

You are offered this year nn oppor
tunity to divest yourself of these con
ditions, to eliminate the old and to put
on the new. The progressive party
offers you an avenue of escape from
the worn out and thread bare promises
of the two old parties if you will accept
it. This is not a time for petty preju
dices, but a time to act. Tho pro
gressive party has come to stay. It is
destined to bo the people's choice for it
is logically "The People's Party."
Tho greatest argument against the
leader of the progressive party and
one of the greatest and most wonderful
men this nation has ever known, and
the argument most frenuentlv heard is
"The Third Term." This is tho silliest
of all arguments of a national campaign
which has contained much silliness, and
one not worthy of consideration.
Thore never was a public man in
closer communion and morein sympathy
with the people's cause than Theodore
Koosevelt. tins is vouchsated by all
the nation's great men and more so, by
those who know him best.
I would most earnestly call your at
tention to our candidate for the U. S.
Senate George W. Norris, a more con
scientious, just and honorable man
neverlived. He is a man of the people,
for tho people. His good work while in
congress, his ability, his character and
his large experience, all serve to qualify
him as the right man and the people's
choice, he is our friend, vote forhim.
Frank Armstrong, the good old
honest, square and level headed Frank.
A farmer and one of the largest cattle
feeders in the state He generally gets
what he goes after. Ho is not a pro
fessional politician but a practical and
successfu. farmer, stockman and busi
ness man. You need him and he is
going to bo ejected. He will help you.
Every farmer in this district as well as
every laboring man should vote and
work forhim for congress, from this
the Gth congressional district. Don't
forget Frank Armstrong for Congress.
Yours for better conditions, more
prosperity, cleaner and more respect
