Election. Tuesday. November II. I1KK.
One more opportunity to vote!
It may bo our last! Do not spoil
your Record by voting against
the REPUBLICAN PARTY,
which has always been j-our
friend. Remember that Demo
crat Kipp who is shouting about
pensions, was shouting harder
during the war against paying
you the $13.00 a month you were
then getting. Kipp is as old as
many of your old comrades.
What was he doing during the
war? Up a tree or doing his
best to plug you in the back.
Now he wants your votes. Re
member "When the Devil was sick,
The Devil a monk would be,
But when the Devil got well
Devil a monk was he."
Comrade, you remember how
the Johnnys would don the blue,
60 us to get a chance to shoot
you down. This is the old trick.
Kipp promises pensions if elect
ed. When elected he will line up
with the Democratic party who
always oppose pensions, but steal
the credit when a Republican
Committee grant them. One
more vote, Comrades, for the Re
publican Party, before Taps shall
Another IJryan. Argument.
In one of his Indiana speeches. Tues
day, Mr. Bryan, arguing for Govern
ment guarantee of bank deposits, illus
trated his argument bv telling the storv
of an old Nebraska farmer who asked
for a loan of $.0(l from a bank. The
bank agreed to accommodate the far
mer provided he got some of his neigh
bors to go security for the loan. I5y and
by, having accumulated some surplus
money, tne uanK solicited Ins deposit
The farmer then said :
. "Yes, I will let you have mv monev.
but you should get your banker friends
to go security.
It is with' such arguments as these
that Mr. liryan is underi :' iiigto deceive
and fool bis audiences, .-..'thing could
better illustrate the superficiality of Mr.
Bryan's know ledge of banking than this
story. Mr. liryan would lead bis hearers
to believe that a bank gave no security
for the money of its depositors. On the
contrary, it is giving the largest measure
of security. It is giing the Fccmity of
its capital and surplus. It is giving the
security of the double liability of its
stockholders. It is giving the'securitv
of a large cash reserve fund. It is giv
ing the security of (io eminent examin
ations of its accounts.
On the other hand, the Nebraska far
mer when he wanted that loan of a
bank had no established ciedit, no cap
ital or surplus, no double liability, no
reserve fund, and no Government regu
lation. Consequently, he bad to get
somebody to go security for him. Yet
Mr. liryan savs that the argument made
by the simple farmer had more horse
sense in it than all the arguments that
the bankers had put out.
Is Mr. liryan a self-hypnotist? Has
he really persuaded himself to belie -!
all that hosavB to the people?
The Herald, which strenuously advo
cates Mr. Jiryan's soap bubble theories,
might possibly agree toenter intoa com
bination with the Independent and Citi
zen to guarantee the accounts payable
of the combination, but we question if
the Independent would agree, while we
are absolutely positive wo would prefer
to be burdened with only our own.

C. C. l'KATT.
The onlv issue the Democrats can find
in their efforts to stop Wayne county
voters from supporting C. C. I'ratt has
been discovered. He is charged with
the hideous crime of spending a few of
the winter months with bis family at the
home of his wife's mother, at Kiiighaiu
tdii, and only spends from !l to III miuitli
at his home in New Milfoid, which is
about -' miles from Kiughaiuton, con
sequently Mr. Kipp, the man with the
wad, says that Mr. I'ratt is a New Yorker.
Any one who has not served over six
months in an insane asylum, would know
that I'ratt could not obtain the nomina
tion if he were not legally a lesident of
Pennsylvania. If Kipp believed that
I'ratt was not a resident of I'enn-ylva-nia
be would be the last man to Iel it be
known, for bis (.Kipp's) election would
be assured, for no man not a legal resi
dent of Pennsylvania could take his si at
in Congress and represent that State.
Kipp knows and so does his heelers that
this talk is all rot, and is only a kippi.-h
way of fooling the people. Col. Pratt
bought a small three horse power electric
runabout for his wife and children, while
at Kiughaiuton, as the machine could
only be used on the paved streets of a
city, and where electricity could be pro
cured, he took out a license in New
York State and gave bis residence as
Kinghamton, which was the only thing
an honest man could do, as the niacbina
was to be used in Kinghamton, and was
not suitable for country roads, and for
places that had no electric light plants.
Pratt is the largest taxpayer in New Mil
ford, has lived there all his life, and has
the respect of the people to such an ex
tent that all but three votes were cast
for him at the'priniaries. Voters, coin
pare Pratt's record with Kipp's.

AliTIII I! W. I.AIiKAI'.KK.
Aithur W. l.airnhee, one of the l!e
piiblican candidates for re-election to
theolliceof Count Auditor, is the son
of I!e. K. Lairabec, a Methodist
minister, and was born in .lack sun, Sus
quehanna county, .Inly 7, ISlill. He was
educated in the public schools of Thomp
son, that county, and llonesdale. l'or
four years he was a teacher, after which
he became station agent and telegraph
operator at Slarucca, remaining there
for tluee years. In 1S!C, associated with
M. C. Kenyoii, he bought the grist mill
of II. K. Spencer, in Starncca, and four
years later purchased his partner's in
terest, and since that date has been sole
proprietor of tlie business. In 1!K( he
married Mis Kvclyn, daugbterof Charles
II. Howell, of Mount Pleasant.
Mr. l.arrabee deserves coihmeudation
for a most painstaking discharge of his
duties during his term as Auditor now
drawing to a close, having made a record
which affords every assurance that if
elected he will "serve the tax payers of
the county for the next three years with
added ability, due to his experience.
If you favor Al. Klake for Hcgister
and Kecorder a vote tliuslv will be in
favor of a man who never held ollice,
but as a business fanner is worthy of
any man's confidence and vote.
When such sterling Democrats as
Judge George S. Purdy, A. P.. Ganuuell,
1!. M. Stocker, and Samuel Saunders
join with such Republicans as Henry
Wilson, T. Y. Koyd, Col. Coe Durland,
and .lames C. Kirdsall, in calling a mass
meeting of taxpayers to protest against
the reckless extravagance of county of
ficials and demand an examination of
their accounts, it is very evident that
something was "Kotten in Denmark."
This meeting was called when George
Kipp was President of the Wayne County
Hoard of Commissioners, and the meet
ing nominated a committee to examine
the accounts of the Oiiiiinissioners, and
their rcpoit would bring the blush of
shame to the highest priced Reformer
who is supporting Kipp in Kradford
county. Such a mtten condition of af
faiis is indescribable. An appeal was
math to the courts, and some of the
money which was illegally taken was
returned, but how much was lost to the
county was never exactly known. One
bill of 150 days painting the Couit House,
at $ii.7" per day tbig wages those days)
was paid, hut Kipp and his associates
did not know any more about the cor
rectness of the bill than he does now
about the number of pensions he has
promised, if elected. Why does Kipp
publish his birthplace as Green town
ship, Wayne Co.'.' Don't he know where
hi was born? There is no Green town
shrp in Wayne. It is wonderful how
quick and easily some men can change
their politics, when a wad of money is
the argument ucd. It is said that there
are a lot of prominent men who are hav
ing their pictures exhibited and giving
their reasons for supporting Kipp. Most
of these photos have been borrowed from
I the Duffy Malt Whiskey Co. and others
from the Peruna Co. A Hue lot of pall
bearers they will make,
To a San Francisco paper must bo
given the cicdit for one of the cleverest
caitoonp of the present campaign. It
is a squirrel in one of the usual round
cages, the little creature ndoiued with
the face and featuics of Kryan. The .
squirrel was going at top notch speed. I
Gazing at him was a sun of 1'rin, who
exclaimp: "lie niver gets anywhere,
but isn't he a great innncr?" Kryan,
excels ntthat, though, liVe the squiircl!
in the cage, to no purpose. j
In his way Mr. Kryan is a most re- j
markable man. No other Democtat in
the country to-day, with the stigma of
two defeats, could so arouse the hopes
of the Democracy and make iheni be
lieve he was the real Moses to lead them
out of the wilderness where they have
been starving, into fat offices, as Kryan.
lie has the faculty of tickling the eais
of the unstable and the power to s.ay
large audiences to a rematkable degree.
He turns from one issue to another with
a rapidity that is dazzling, and repu
diates during a campaign doctrines he
treuuously advocated a few years be
fore. In the opinion of Grover Cleve
land, the greatest Democrat of recent
years, Kryan is a dangerous man, and a
menace U the Republic.
Unstable as water, he would hinder
and prevent the return of prosperity,
which now seems waiting only the elec
tion of Taft to the Presidency. His poli
cies are unknown, even to himself. The
proverbial bull in a china shop would
be lost to sight, for the mischief that
would be done. The attitude of the
manufacturing interests will be one of
waiting until it shall be definitely seen
and known what amount of revision the
tariff shall undergo. With very few ex
ceptions the larger manufacturers, even
in the South, are for Taft, and hoping

to the farmers, this class of labor is the
most numerous and important. The la
bor vote should be cast for the party of
There must be considerable Irish in
the make-up of the President, for be
dearly loves a fight. Whether it is dig
nified for the President to mix it up in
political campaigns or not, Mr. Roose
velt has not hesitated to deal some very
telling blows for his party. Haskell's
knockout, and later his remarks on the
attitude of Kryan on theinjunction ques
tion, show that the President is alert to
the various issues. He is still very pop
ular with the average man.
Governor Hughes has rapidly taken
rank among the foremost statesmen in
the Republican party. He showed up
Mr. Bryan as a shifty, evasive politician,
who lacks constructive statesmanship
and executive ability, but appeals to
class prejudice and discontent for his
support. Senator Knox, of our own
state, has also made some excellent
campaign speeches, while the Governor
will d i some work alone tlie northern
I tier next week.
Over against Bryan's record as a talk
. er must ue piuceu me record ol Tail, a
man who does things. Whether on the
I Bench, in the Philippines, in Cuba, at
the Isthmus of Panama, or in charge of
the Cabinet ollice he so ably adminis
ters, he has a record that cannot be as
sailed. He stands for all that is best in
the Roosevelt policies and promises to
carry them forward. Judged by what
he has done, and taking him at his
word for what he will do, in the event
of his election, the country will be itu
measurably safer with him as its Presi
dent than with Bryan. It is not an ex
periincnt with Taft. Since the founda
tion of the Republic no candidate for
the ollice of President on any ticket has
had as good n record of service and ad
niinistrative ability, fitting him for that
high ollice, as Win. II. Taft.
uoi. rrau continues to make gains
through the district, and looks like a
winner. He has the support of the
party and in a district normally Re
publican by 5,000 ho need have no fear.
He has made a good, manly fight, and
deserves hearty support. With his
knowledge of the needs of the district,
his wide acquaintance among influen
tial men, and his desire to be of service
to his constituents, the Fourteenth need
have no cause to fear that its interests
will suffer. Were the two men, Pratt
and Kipp, equal in every respect, ex
cept politics, we should choose, the for
mer, for we want a Republican at
Washington. Republican constructive
policies are to lengthened and strength
ened, currency questions settled, tho
Panama canal dug, free silver buried a
little deeper, corporations curbed and

Republican rule and management.
Pratt should be the man to send.
W. K. Perham may be handicapped
somewhat by a lack of hot air, such as
candidates often hand out, but he will

burg next winter. The fellow that does
things is always entitled to considera-
