YOUR VOTE
FOR PRESIDENT
TWTAY and ought to be a serious mat
ter to you on November 5th.
Your man may win or may
lose. Whichever happens, a month
from that time you will be reconciled to
the result and continue to be a patriot
ic and happy citizen.
But it is different with clothes;
your vote on that matter is directly in
your qwn personal interest. If you vote
right you win a good deal and if you
vote wrong you lose. We want you to
vote for our Hart, Schaffner CO, Marx
suits and overcoats. We are making a
big hit with these goods and we want
one of them to hit you.

Isn't It So.
TURKISH ARMY HURLED BACK UP
ON CONSTANTINOPLE BY ALLIES
Porte asks Powers to Interevene
May Be Driven out of Europe.
Tho caso f tho Turks Is desper
ate, tho allied armies having hod
another week of unbroken success.
Advices continue, to comu that Ad
rlanoplo has fallen, but this Is doubt
ed. Thero Is no doubt, however, thnt
tho Hungarians and tho allied forces
have driven tho powerful army of
tho Turks, that was considered al
most Invincible, back upon the de
fenses of Constantinople and threat
en, within n few days, to capture that
city. Of a territory moro than slxty
flvo thousand square, miles in ex
tent, held by tho Turks In Europe,
only Constantinople now remains 'f
tho allies hold what they have, con
quered. Tho dream, held through co
many eenturlc3, of the dawning of
a day when Europo should bo rid of
tho Turk's persecutions, massacris aid
encroachments would cease, Is about
to bo realized.
England Is In sack-cloth and ashen,
lamenting her lost opportunity and
grieving over tho fact that sho has
allowed tho tinspenkablu conditions
to exist so long when sho might have
easily shown her hand. Germany Is
In nctlvo sympathy with tho Turks,
while tho French people, not tho
Government, aro rejoicing nt tho
victories of tho allies. Tho Powers
aro exchanging notes, hut they aro
qulto different In tono from what
they wero nt tho beginning of hostil
ities. Franco Is trying to bring them
to a declaration of territorial disin
terestedness, Tho Porto Is unceasing In his
pleadings, while, tho allies, encourag
ed by their success, aro declaring that
poaco proposals can only como direct,
and tho world Is rejoicing In their
spunk.
Tills has been tho most spectacu
lar war In all tho history of wars.
ATTENTION!
Tho main Interest of everybody, of
oourso, this week Is centered on
politics. Wo havo, therefore, devot
ed considerable tlmo and expenso
to getting tho latest and most rell
nblo news of Tuesday's election,
which will ba found In tho bulletin
preceding tho election, returns on
this pago.
Wo aro suro that our readers will
bo pleased with tho excellent cuts
of tho successful candidates and
Mr. Hryan which wo present.
Tho other features of tho paper
havo boon lu no wlso neglected,
however, and wo direct attention to
our Agricultural Department, Our
Teachers' Dopartniont, Domestic Sci
ence Course, etc., on pago 3 and
pago 2, our editorial pago,
Somo Important features havo
been crowded cut but they will ap
pear next week.
HAVEN'T .WE BEEN FAIR?
Tho most renmrknble political campaign this country has known
since 1800 has just como to a closo. Excitement has run high every
whoro, nml partisan linos have been closely drawn. There had been
much bitterness and vituperation, part of tho time betneen thocandi
dates themselves, and thin spirit' has been largely prevalent among
tho vnriotm speakers, their supporters and pretty genernlly in tho
press.
The Citizen saw the storm coming early in the spring, nnd ninco
it Is a newspaper, having opinions nnd convictions nnd nbove all a
conscienco, which we fear somo have not, it had to take sides, and take
sides regardless of consequences. And there has hardly been n mo
ment when it has hnd nny doubt of thp result. Hut the very fact
thnt it was assured of n result contrary to lis convictions bound it to
plead for the right as it saw the right. And it has done that, or at
tempted to do that, without bitterness and In n spirit of fairness.
Ah an evidence of this fairness, attention should be called to the
appcnl of the thrco parties that has been published week after week.
The Citizen has therefore been n kind of forum for the discussion of
tho issues by ndvocates of the three parties.
Another evidence of that fairness, thnt we hope will not bo for
gotten, in the fact that bitter personalities were not used, nclmir
ntion being expressed for each candidate, the parties alone and the
history of tho parties boing used as the criteria of judgment.
The principle that lias guided all along has been that of tolera
tion. If n man differs from us religiously we concede him honesty of
conviction nnd wo only ask tho same concession of him. The same
principle should govern, so fnras no are concerned, in politics. Wo do
not expect everybody to believe as ne believe, think ns we think, or
see as we see, nnd of cotirso we cannot be expected to see as others see.
Each should, therefoie, attribute to tho other honesty of thought and
purpose, nnd when this is done there is no occasion for bitterness or
hard feeling.
Ah in the stale election last fall, the principles and candidates
we supported have gone down to defeat, but now, an then, no shall
support the winning side, nnd we only hope that tho new ndministrn.
tion in tho nation will be as successful nnd ns worthy of our support
ns tho Mate administration has been.
