CAST YOUR VOTE FOR YOUR OWN CAUSE TODAY
If you have a just complaint; if you have a protest; MAKE IT TODAY AT THE BALLOT BOX WITH YOUR VOTE.
Today your protest won't be jeered at by the POWERS. Today your protest will be respected and it will be heard throughout the state and nation.
It avails you nothing to complain bitterly of injustice and wrongs year after year if, on election day, you are soothed or deceived into voting to perpetuate that wrong and that injustice.
For four long years the people of this state and nation have asked for the bread of Equal Rights, for the Bread of a Square Deal, and they have been handed the stone of Robbery Tariff, and high cost
of living—the stone of crooked gang rule and boss-controlled judges.
Today the voters of this state and nation have the opportunity, not only to ask for their rights and for the Square Deal—they can demand them, and THEY CAN SECURE THEM.
Vote for YOUR OWN CAUSE today.
Vote for YOUR OWN MEASURES.
Vote for the MEN who will SERVE YOU.
THE TIMES HONESTLY BELIEVES THAT THE VOTERS CAN BEST SERVE TfiSIR CAUSE TODAY BY VOTING FOR THE PRINCIPLES OF THE PROGRESSIVE PARTY, AND BY VOT
ING FOR THE LEADING CANDIDATES ON THE PROGRESSIVE TICKET.
Vote to kick the bosses out of politics.
1 REASON why you should watch
fur the returns tonight is that
you won't be disturbed tomorrow
morning by the shrill cry of
"WUXTREE" from the newsboys.
The Times will have the returns
first, as usual.
