WILSOfcl GOT THE VOTE
.One of the experiences which
befell President. Wilson when he
was running for election last fall
was zealously guarded by the
two or three people who knew of
it for reasons that are apparent"
when it is remembered that the
Democratic .campaign managers
were afraid the governor might
not poll a heavy vote in communi
ties thickly populated by foreign
ers. Later they, told the story.
It was in Denver, where two
laborers were watching Gov. Wil
son, who was making a speech
fromvthe rear of his car. '
'T think I'llvoteor that Wil

backward as to such measures, as
fair'ness'and justice for women,
workers, it should kick out its
present leaders and turn to such'
as Tohn Keegan. If it fails to do":
this," it should be driven., from
control and such, as Keegan
should lead in the driving".
This is the day of the man witlu
a cause, not the man with a party,
and such as Keegan should stick
to their guns and keep on crack-

'mbre-bullets in your gun, John,',
and return to the firing line!
