TtfT" TANK CAR.
MY ONE BEST REASON FOR
VOTING FOR WILSON
By Edward F.JDunne, Gov. of Illinois.
I am going to vote for Pres. Wil
son's re-election and believe the
great majority of my fellow citizens
will do likewise.
The paramount reason which ac
tuates me, and which will actuate
my fellow citizens to vote for Pres.
Wilson, is that he has, despite the
cries of the jingo and the munition
manufacturer, kept his country at
peace with the whole world and has
preserved domestic industrial peace
during the whole of his administra
tion. His preservation' of the country
from war and industrial' chaos has
made this, country the most prosper
ous and contented counrry on the
face of the earth; He lias saved the
mothers and wives of the land from
distress and widowhood.'
Under Pres. Wilson's administra
tion we are maintaining- happy
homes and a prosperous citizenship.
International or domestic industrial
war would have changed all this.
