Hay or Hodge—which?
Shall the time-clock of the Alirighty be stopped? Shall the evolution of the race be turned back or shall humanity press onward to attain the
constitutional guaranty of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? The citizenship of Washington will answer tomorrow.
After a quarter of a century of struggle, a crisis has come with a chance for the people to come into their own. Humanity and Dirty Dollars
are in a death grapple.
It is Hodge or Hay—which?
Governor Hay spends $13,000 to gain a barren nomination. Not just to be governor, but to get a chance to perpetuate the machine of Dirty
Dollars which is grinding humanity into dividends. Hs is smooth, suave, genteel, and his campaign is one of trickery, deception, slander and dark
ness. In a tuxedo suit he appeals to the culture of the state and mouths honied words for the benefit of the women voters while his bosses scatter
slander, falsehood, and work the crooked corporations of the state for votes.
Bob Hodge, a plain man of the plain people, learned the lessons of human brotherhood down in the bowels of the earth where he dug coal and
felt the galling chains of Dirty Dollars himself. He came up, saw the tricks of each in politics and broke them up and the people of Washington
have chosen him to lead the movement for their political and industrial freedom.
ALL READY FOR BIG KICK TOMORROW
AND THE PEOPLE WILL KICK THE BOSSES OUT OF POLITICS BY VOTING FOR HODGE, PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATE FOR GOT.'

IT IS NOT A NEW STRUGGLE. THE VOTERS REALIZE THE NECESSITY FOR CHANGE,
THEY HAVE ASKED FOR THE BREAD OF REFORM AND HAVE GOT THE STONE OF IN
CREASED COST OF LIVING UNTIL THEIR CHILDREN ARE FORCED INTO THE INDUS
TRIAL FIELD TO COIN MORE DIRTY DOLLARS FOR THE GANG.
VOTERS OF WASHINGTON, ARE YOU SATISFIED?
TO THAT QUESTION EVERY VOTER NOT DIRECTLY BENEFITTED BY THE GAME OF
DIRTY DOLLARS MUST GIVE AN EMPHATIC "NO" FOR ANSWER. THE PEOPLE ASKED
FOR A WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION LAW AND SAW IT MUTILATED IN FORMING AND
THEN DISCREDITED IN OPERATION. THEY ASKED FOR THE RECALL, AND GOVERNOR
HAY ELIMNIATED THE JUDGES FROM THE RECALL TO SAVE THE CAUSE OF DIRTY
DOLLARS. WHEREVER CONCESSIONS IN THE WAY OF REFORM LEGISLATION HAVE
BEEN GRANTED WHEN THE PEOPLE SEEMED DETERMINED THE MACHINE HAS
SLIPPED IN JOKERS TO NULLIFY THE WILL OF THE CITIZENSHIP AND ENABLE IT TO
KEEP ITS GRIP ON THE THROATS OF THE PEOPLE.
AND AT LAST ENOUGH OF THE PEOPLE HAVE SEEN THE TRICK TO CAUSE THEM
TO INAUGURATE OPEN REVOLT.
AND THE QUESTION IS HODGE OR HAY—WHICH?
IF IT IS HAY, DIRTY DOLLARS TRIUMPHS AND THE JUGGLING WITH THE PEO
PLE'S INTERESTS WILL GO ON. THE PEOPLE WILL BE GIVEN NO MORE THAN ENOUGH
TO SOOTHE THEM INTO TRANQUILITY WHILE THEY ARE ROBBED. EXTRAVAGANCE
WILL CONTINUE, CORRUPTION WILL GO ON. THE MACHINE WILL BE DOMINANT AS OF
IF HODGE WINS, THERE WILL BE A NEW DEAL. THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE A
CHANCE. THE MACHINATIONS OF DIRTY DOLLARS WILL BE OVERTURNED AND MAN
WILL BE ABOVE MAMMON.
THIS IS WHY THE HAY MACHINE HAS SOUGHT BY SLANDER AND FALSEHOOD AND
THE DIRTIEST KIND OF POLITICAL CAMPAIGN TO BELITTLE 808 HODGE.
WITH THEIR OWN MACHINE DRIPPING WITH HUMAN BLOOD AND WEAK FROM
VERY ROTTENNESS THEY CRY "THIEF! THIEF!" AS THEY RUN TO DECEIVE THE VOT<
ERS WHO THIS YEAR ARE ARISING AND DEMANDING A RECKONING.
BY CLEVER MANIPULATION AND THE PERSONAL INTEREST OF THOSE IN THE
GAME THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP MOST OF THEIR OWN CROOKEDNESS FROM BE
ING FULLY UNDERSTOOD BY THE MASSES. ONLY OCCASIONALLY DO THE VOTERS GET
A GLIMPSE AT THE REAL CONDITION OF STATE AFFAIRS, BUT THE SUAVE POLITL
CIANS BY CONCERTED ACTION TRY TO LULL THEM TO FANCIED SECURITY AGAIN.
IS IT GOING TO WORK THIS YEAR?
OR ARE THE PEOPLE GOING TO DEMAND THEIR OWN AND ELECT 808 HODGE?
IT IS A PLAIN ISSUE—HAY AND DIRTY DOLLARS, CROOKED POLITICS, SLANDER AND
LIBEL; HODGE AND A SQUARE DEAL FOR THE COMMON PEOPLE WHO MAKE UP THE
GREAT STATE OF WASHINGTON.
IT IS USELESS TO TRY TO INJECT SIDE ISSUES INTO THE CONTROVERSY.
THE FIGHT IS BETWEEN HAY AND HODGE.
BETWEEN DIRTY DOLLARS AND THE PEOPLE.
BETWEEN CHICANERY, TRICKERY, FRAUD AND DECEIT AND HONESTY AND A
IF YOU BELIEVE IN HONESTY, AND DECENCY; IF YOU WANT THE STATE RUN FOR
THE PEOPLE DNSTEAD OF FOR THE POLITICIANS; IF YOU BELIEVE THE CAUSE OF THE
PEOPLE DESERVES RECOGNITION ABOVE THE DEMANDS OF DIRTY DOLLARS, THEN
HEED NOT THE TONGUE OF SLANDER AND THE SUAVE MACHINATIONS OF THE GUILTY
GANG, BUT VOTE TOMORROW FOR 808 HODGE FOR GOVERNOR AND A NEW DEAL IN
THE STATE OF WASHINGTON.
