little opposition, but Citizens tickets,
based solely upon municipal questions,
were ably supported and won in a dozen
cases. In Wichita the Citizens ticket
captured three wards and the Republi

straight Democratic ticket elected four
of the six councilmen, still leaving the
majority Republican. In Emporia the
Citizens ticket swept everything. There

"We hold that a policy which has fill
ed the land with idle men, which takes
from labor Its honest reward, which
doubles theb urdea of debt which, amid
bountiful harvests, in a time of pro
found peace, makjs necessary the issu
ing of hundreds of millions of dollars
worth of interest-bearing bonds in order
to meet the current expenses of the gov
ernment, is an lmjeachment of both the
intelligence and Integrity of those who
control our government
"We hold that as a tariff for revenue
has failed to reftore prosperity, so a
protictive tariff, 'as long as the money
of the country i held, ounce for ounce,
100 per cent higaer than the money of
the orient and of Spanish-America, is
impotentto saveour farmers and manu
facturers against a competition which
they are helpless to meet and we repu
diate the belief that protection without
bimetallism can restore prosperity. The
situation makes clear that bimetallism
and protection must be accepted as con
stituting one vital, indivisible principle,
that not only the progress but the safe
ty of the industries of our country and
the tollers who carry on hose Industries,
make thr acceptance of this principle
imperative protection by a -tariff to
equalize the wages of our country and
those paid abroad, and blmetallismto
take from gold Its present appreciation
and to equalize the money of this coun
try and that of silver standard nations.
tWe cordially endorse the stand'
taFen in the national legislature by
western senators and representatives In
behalf of holding bimetallism and pro
tection together as one.
'We ask our delegates to St. Louis to
do their utmost to secure in the national
Republican platform a full acknowl
edgment of the imperative need of a re
turn to read bimetallism and a promise
of Its swift adoption without regard to
other nations, by opening our mints to
thb free coinage of gold and silver at a
ritio of 16 to 1."
"Nominations wero then called for and
sixteen candidates were presented,
among them Judge C. C. Goodwin and
Charles Crane. In a neat speech Mr.
JCrane declined the honor and asked his
friends to vote for Colonel Trumbo.
Judge Goodwin also thanked his
friends for the honor and declined to
have his name used.

taken with the above result
