Cox Not Trying to Slip Into
Office by False Pretenses.
PEOPLE ARE HIS CONFIDANTS
Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate
It Not Afraid to Publicly 8tate Hla
Poiltlon Program of Progreatlve
Leglalatlon Promised la Beat Ever
Offered by a Political Organisation
Congressman James M. Cox of Day
ton, has adopted a new plan to con
duct hla campaign for governor one
that conform to the moit modern
thought as to how a candidate for
public office shall conduct himself.
Instead of trying to allp Into office
y false pretensos or by "carrying wa
ter ob both shoulders," as the old
time boss controlled candidate did,
Congressman Cox is making con
fidants of the people. He discusses
all pending publlo questions, declares
plainly what his position is on each,
what he thinks ought to be done and
what h proposes to see is done when
he is chosen governor. In his travols,
tho Democratic gubernatorial candi
date tolls tho county organizations he
will call upon them to holp him re
doom party platform pledges should
that become necessary, and he is go
ing to conduct a "round table," whero
experts In different linos will meet
him and exchange iews concerning
The now administration will put
through 20 big reform measures the
largest and most progressive program
ovor put forth by a party In this state.
Hero nro Homo of the most lmportnnt:
A short ballot law, which uluill nbol
lsh stnto olllccs created by tho leg
islature, and the submission to the
people of a constitutional amendment
to abolish all the so-called "constitu
tional" state olllccs, except the su
preme court, and make them appoint
ive by the govornor.
A state-wide primary for all state,
county und municipal ofllccrs, United
States senators and delegates to na
tional political conventions.
An amendment that will compel
employers to cotitrlbuta to the work
men's compensation fund.
A law for the removal from office
of public officials, including stato offi
ce, judges und mumbnrH of tho legis
lature, found guilty of misconduct.
An Immediate revaluation of public
utility properties so that rates shall
be bused upon actual value und not
upon "watered stock."
Ijiws providing a Inx on Inherit
nuces, Incomes and franchises. Leg
islation abolishing the present state
tax levy, gMug municipalities homo
rule In taxation uffulrs, reducing tho
hours of work ror employod women,
Restricting still further the employ
ment of children, providing sopnrate
llnllots for the election of stato and
national officers, mai-ing a state levy
for good roads, creating n liquor li
cense system thut will call for rigid
enforcement, making state experi
mental farms more benollclal and
Granting municipalities every facility
conveyed to them by the home ruin
uincndiuont recently udnpted.
Then there Is to be Judicial reform
legislation and n now penitentiary,
with ubout l.r.00 ncres of fertile land
surrounding It; prisoners lo be em
ployed on the farm and nt other pur
suits where the biggest Item Is labor
cost; prisoners to be paid and the
difference between tho cost of their
tubslstencc and their earnings to he
turned over to their families or other
An era of meat progress Is in store
for the commonwealth when Jlmmln
Cox Is Inaugurated governor, und a
Democratic, legislature Is seated to
work In harmony with him.

the important matteri at Ittue,

out political blat. He hat made
an excellent record and was eulo
glied at the state convention by
hit party for the good work he
hat done. He gave hit pertonal
services to the graft trials of In
dicted senators, and contributed
largely to the tuccettful protec

All 'voters of Knox county, Irrespec

be interested In tho candidacy of Rob

Will The REAL FREEMEN
Uphold Wilson's Hands?
Woodrow Wilson has refused emphatically to accept contributions to
his Gampaign Fund from the Interests, from corrupting influences, from
any questionable sources.
He has given us, the Democratic National Committee, to understand
that he will go into the White House with clean hands or not at all.
Who It Getting The Money
of The Trusts?
So lure has been Wilson's stand, to well known his Incor
raptible purpose, that no private interests have dared to
approach either our candidate or his committee.
We have not been offered a penny by the trusts, and
we certainly have not solicited a penny from them. The
money of the Interests is being spent acalatt Wilton. No
matter for whomwe need not discuss that here it is now
common gossip that the money power of the nation is being
used in an attempt to defeat Woodrow Wilton.
What It a "People's Campaign?"
We are addressing ourselves to Am real fraeoMti of
AsMriea, the upright, Progressive Voters oi the country
who are doing the work of the nation and not the work of
trusts and bosses.
We realise that the salvation of every righteous cause
rests with you.
Often this cry of a People's Party or a People's President
is raised by the very forces we seek to defeat and whom we
must and will defeat. But look to our standard and our
standard bearer and decide yourself as to which is the
People's Campaign and must, therefore, be fought with the
Woodrow Wilson Has Clean Hands
Woodrow Wilson is the cleanest man in national politics
He came of illustrious forefathers, who laid by blood and
heredity the foundation of a future President through gen
eration alter generation of upright record.
If Wilson is to be elected it must be by clean money and
there is only one source of such money from the voters of
the country who realize the importance of having a govern
ment uninfluenced by the almighty dollar,
Wilson's hands are clean.
Will you uphold them?
How Much Money Will You Give?
How Much Can You Raise?
There are big campaign expenses to be met if we are to
win on Election Day in November. We must tell the voters
of the country about Wilson, what he Is, what he has done
We must show them his record. We must show them his
platform. We must point out to them the features of his
platform which mean so much to this nation. This great
work will cost a lot of money. We must meet the usual
heavy toll necessary to present a platform and a candidate
to a hundred million. f
Vour dollar, your (5, your 110, your 180 is needed. .And
don't mistake we want the man who can only afford the
one dollar, We need him. We need the womnn who can
