Messrs. W.T. Murray, W. W.
Fairbanks, John Beech and others
are doing some good work in speak

stirring up the people to a thorough
appreciation of the situation. The
republicans are leaving no stone un
turned to bring out their fulL vote,
and democrats must be up and doing.
Lay aside apathy and personal feel
ing and give both Buchanan and
Snodgrass the full vote. The interest
of the party calls you to this duty.
We understood that republicans
in this county are offering to sup
port Buchanan If alliance men will in
turn vote for Clay Evans. No true
democrat will be caught by such a
flimsy trick as this. Republicans
know that Baxter, their candidate for
governor, has no chance whatever
for election, and they are very will
ing to throw away their vote for
governor in order to secure a demo
crat's ballot for Evans, who has
proved himself an arch traitor to the
South in congress. Let every demo
crat in Warren County be true to his
party next Tuesday, vote straight for
your party candidates, and spurn
