forces were begun "Wednesday by W.
T. Stephenson, Democratic campaign

head of the Republican county execu
tlvo commlttco and a dozen other
recognized leaders.
What will tho absence of tho bood
llng voto mean? With nearly one
third of tho 0,600 voters disfranchis
ed already, tho situation has suddenly
become foreign to tho men who havo
had county affairs at their finger
ends for thirty years.

first Chairman Stephenson suld Wed
nesday. "It Is hardly necessary for mo to
say I am relieved. Men In nioderato

In past years leaders of lxth par

One result of the political purging

Bamo workers, an uvor'ago of ten to

been employed.
Veteran politicians Wednesday "told
of how In recent years tho corruption
grow to bo so widespread that tho
workers thomHolves becamo tho worst
offenders. In tho last election tho two
committees resorted to tbo schemo of
sending tho boodllng funds to each
precinct by ono trusted man who had
to tako his chances In seeing that
tho cash got to Its final destination.
Last November men In rural pro

They could not tell whether tho bood

Ktioriuoti.s Campaign Funds.
"Adams county campaign funds",
snld Chnlrman Stophonson, "havo
never boon undor $16,000. Dut frequent
ly they havo reached $25,000, that Is
nearly $4 for every voter, or about
$13 for each grafter."
Now all of that has been eliminated
Thero has boon some little talk of
contesting Judgo Blair's informal
method of fining confessed boodlers
beforo tho grand jury Indicted them
but sontlmont is overwhelmingly be

"I for ono am proud of Adams
county and hopofm of Its futuro,"
former County Auditor S, S. Jones,
a leadlngDomocrat, said Wednesday,
"If two thirds of tho county has
withstood tho corruption of thirty
years, I can eco nothing but good

Republican Chairman McCIanahun
welcomes tho now regime. Ho said:
"It will bo easier for tho candi

Chicago Jan. 3. The city man 1s
going back to the farm all right. Ono
company's report Just Issued shows
sales In two years of nearly
1CO.O0O acres, largely to city men and
women, In tracts averaging 13.9 acres
all In one localltv In Florida.
City men have tnken from this
Chicago company first 30,000 then
OH, 000 nnd finally 15,000 acres of an
80,000 ncre tract, but nevcrtheles? tho
selling seems only to have got a good
fair start, for tho snlo of November
(tho last month reported) were flftcon
thousand acres, which shows a grow
ing rather than a diminishing exodus
from tho city flat and the counting
room Othrr companies havo sold
thousands of neres In other places, al
though this record of IGO.000 acies
to some 10,000 city men In two years
Is a now ono In colonization. Sales In
Texas. Idaho and other states havo
been large. If not so astounding an
evidence of the city man's mood.
The success of tho land show In
Chicago was conspicuously duo to tho

and his wife and her yearning nro to

eager student of Intensive farming
profits nnd methods. Ho has learned
the lesson of the consumer, nnd en
vies tho producer, ergo ho would bo
ono.
Whether the going of thoso who
havo "gono back to tho farm" has
been a success, can be determined by
tho exporlenco pf theso 10,000 buyers.
It Is evident that many rosy dreams
havo been shattered by a tryout. But
it Is also ovldent that thoso who went
back to tho land with somo dogroo
of knowledge, Intelligence and spunk
ntul with canltnl to maintain themi
during tho preliminary period, havo
achieved Huccess of varying inten
sity. Apporently It depends on tho
man, In this as In undertakings of
tho city. Tho ne'er-do-well has sus
tained his reputation and now.
If ho Is beck In tho city he Is
fairly bursting with. anathema for tho
farm. On the contrary, others who
did not hazard the change blindly,
havo found their llttlo kingdoms of
domestic independence, anil this
Christmas were merry and con
tented, though hustling hard.
Tako this company's colonists; Out
of tho 10,000 land buyers over 4,000
havo gono to the new Florida home,
about 4,000 have expressed their In
tention to go and 20 per cent will
bcnellt by the Incremont of tho oth
ers' labors and devoloii'ncnt work.
Out of tho 1,000 odd Who havo gono,
lug and baggage, to develop their
land a full ten 'per cent wero failures
and their failure worked Injury to
themsnlves nnd the district, but the
results of the other 3,000 families
aro such as to add moro "unearned
Increment" than forseen to tho spe
culator's holdings. Roads havo boon
linado by the company and hout.es
hnvo been built by tho colonists, land
olearod, threo towns created, gangs
nt carpenters, graders, engineers and
laborers, making a monthly pay roll
of $12,000 for the company, havo ro.
duced distances, opened up communi
cation nnd helped tho assentoo land
lord an well as thoso on tho ground.
Ono Detroit man Is said to rocolvo
JflOO n your rent for SO acres which
cost his $2,000 hoeauso It becamo part
of a township.
Tho failures are a pitiful lot, most
ly men who laekod capital and Judg
ment ibut nevertheless throw thom
solves ut the feet of Nuturo expect
ing Bomo mlraclo to bo performed.
They are either back In tho cities
again or trlng to get back. Tho
crops did not magically grow, ripen
and cast their golden rewards Into

Port au Prince, Haiti, Jan. 1
elust between Haiti and .Santo
-The
Do-
mlngo grows more serious dally. Tho
trouble began when President Antone
Simon of Haiti learned that the l)u
mlnlcatiB had occupied territory near
Saltrou, on tho southern frontier,
which Is claimed b both govern
ments. President Simon sent u. detnchinen'
of troops to Saltrou under command
of General Ferdinand, prefect of po
lice. Ferdinand Is noted for his bru-
1-nUiods.und.a
captured several Dominicans and shot
them summurlly.
It is understood that the govern
ment of Santo Domingo has Issued
an Ultimatum demanding Hint tlio
Haitian troops b(, withdrawn at onco
dent of tho Now South Homo com
pany said;
"No man or woman should go to
Florida who Is not prepared for It
and who will not make an Investiga
tion of what Is Invohed In going
onto tho land. The man who has
enough monoy to maintain hints !(
and Is willing to do tho necessary
work In a few months will find him
self In far better condition than If liv
ing In a congested city. It Is cleaner,
moro wholesome and without tho
deadly sameness of dally routine, and
tho dead level of salary life. There
are somo men who would not make
n success an where and thoy won't
succeed on a Florida farm,"
Tills company's report of Its record
making colonizing shows that 30,
000 acres first purchased, known us
St. John's Pork, was dlsposod of In
thirty days' tlmp altogether without
an agency organization and by adver
tising In metropolitan papers. Im
mediately 35.000 acres additional,
known a Jacksonville Heights, wis
bought, and colonization began. This
wns HOinewhat slowor bocauso tho
hundreds of city moil who had been
looking for such a proposition us -was
first offored largely had been eared
for nnd recruits hud to bo mado to
tho .'back to tho land movement.
When Jacksonillle Heights tract was
sold another of (is 000 acres, known
as tho Burkunk-OeaWi wns bought
by the New South 11 mo cowpuny
und sold off In small tracts. Within
a month another tinet of 80,000 ner
es, known as tho I'lataka tract, wus
put on tho market and 15,000 acres
already has boon sold In small par
cols. Tho changes made by such an nrmy
of colonists has been startling. As
ono result, tho llttlo lumber rnllroad
to tho throe now towns Is said to
havo become tho most prosperous lit
tlo railroad In the Unltod States. Pas-
songor travel nnd the sottlor's goods
and products It has had to handle In
and out of a district which threo
yoars ago was almost virgin forest
has furnished K, p. Rontz, tho owner
of the rnllroad, the Oeula Northern,
with protlts enough eneli month to
spend $0,000 In tho extension of the
lino. It soon will be completed from
Ocla to P.ilntka, illstunco of HO miles,
and when comploted tho road will bo
without bonded debt and largely havo
'been constructed from tho earnings

was changed to a railroad worth sev

Columbus., O., Jan. 4 The action
of several legislators, who havo
been classed ns with tho opposition
in pledging themselves to Pomoreno
last night und today, was taken
by close observers to indicate that
n band wugon movement has started
toward Pomerene.
If the latest claling of tho Pomer

havo fifty-seven votes pledged for
their mun, nnd they declare with
confidence that ho will win on tho

afternoon.
Other candidates nro not giving out

tho Hunley crowd figure they will

to win over the doubtfuls and tho

Tho dork horse nnd favorite son
game, It Is genernlly admitted, was
started nnd hns been kept going

Pomerene, It is conceded, has gains

for this has been tho fact that all
