For the Kansas Progressives to at
tempt to disfranchise the few i'aftites
left in the state of fads, the former
being somewhere bctwecn'50,000 and
100,000 in the majority, was just
awful, according to the Taft papers ;
but fur the Taftites to disfranchise
the Grantl Army of Progressives in
Missouri was all right. Why, cer
tainly! The Missouri Progressives
showed, when they had "a show, that
the state stood about 5 to 1 in favor
ofc Roosevelt. It is that way yet.
Give us a fair, free vote, and an hon

in the Republican platform, but
which seems to have been badly
smashed by the steam roller at Chi

junk to be found only "jn the Pro
There is no reason why a Progres
sive Democrat, (and there are some
millions of him), should vote for Wil

Republican should vote for Taft. It
the Democrats stand together, and
Talt gets enough votes to defeat
Roosevelt, thenall- reforms pledged
in the Progressive, platform will have
to wait afleast four years. Of course
four years in the life of the world is
not long, but why not start the good
work now, by electing the Progressive
Party candidates. If Wilson or Taft
is the ruler for th next four years,
"The Interests" will have such ab.
solute control that it will require an
other civil war to break the shackles.
TRnnd Stogie Tax.
Considering the fact that Theodore
Roosevelt is Tunning on a patchwork
platform that contains every kind o'
queer doctorine imaginable, it is not at
all. surprising that he hat included the
iniquitors single tax among his fads.
Kansas City Journal.
The main point in the above item is
the fact that it is a lie out of whole
cloth, but used by nearly all the Taft
aheets in their desperate efforts to de
feat the Progressives, elect Wilson,
and thus set back all reforms for four
years at least. To follow all the lies
aprung by the Talt outfit would be an
endless task, for a new one is sprung
almost daily, but they will all be home
to roost by the evening of Nov. 5th

To the Voters ot Missouri.
It is being said by some, who are
obviously not informed on the ques
tion, lhat the Progreeive party is in
(avoi of the single tax
This is an
erroi , and I desire to correct it at
and I desire
orrce. "-There is not one word in the
progressive piatlorm, either slate or
national, which favors the single tax
proposition. As the candidate of the
Progress party fcr governor. 1 have
taken pains to look into the matter
and know whereof I speak. The
single tax question was not brought
before the Progressive State Convcn
tion as a whole, and I did not hcav it
mentioned there among the delegates
However, I am informed that some
one representing the .single taxers
appeared before the Platform Com
nnttee of the Progressive convention
and urged that it be endorsed in the
Progressive platform. But the com
mittee declined to do this, and, there
fore, it appears that the Progressive
convention, through its platform com
mittee, rejected the single tax pro
position. I am quite sure that no
considerable number of Progressives
lavors the single tax, for I have never
heard it mentioned in a Progressive
convention nor in a conference of
Progressive leaders in the state.
I hough there may be a few individ
ual members of the Progressive party
who favor it, as there are individual
members of the Repnblican, Demo
cratic and Socialist parties favorable
thereto, I know of no candidate on
the Progressive ticket, from Colone
rfooseveu aown, who is m any wise
committed to the single tax. I know
too, that the Progressive party as an
organization in no wise favors or ad
vocates it. Indeed, I do not know
as many as one dozen Progressives in
Missouri who are in favor of the
single tax. Personally, I am not
favor of it andjpjend to vote against
it. Very respectfully,

Editor Republican: You know
theie is such an expression as "poli
tics makes,, s(range bedfellows," and
how well that is exemplified in the
Republican bosses of Morgan County,
Messrs. H. A. Young, chairman of
the county committee, and A. G.
Daker, Maj. Warner's postmaster,
and alleged editor oi the Taft party
organ, six years ago Mr. Young was
very indignant over the attempt made
by A. G. Daker to hold up the Re
publican county committee in the sum
of $200 for the support of the organ,
Baker's abuse of the leaders of the
party, and his slanders of the busi
ness men of Versailles. Mr. Young's
indignation resulted in the location
of the Morgan County Repuiilican,
so I am told, which has been anti
Raker, anti-bdodle, anti-graft, anti
saloon in fact against everything
mean which Baker and the Statesman
stood for. Mr. Young has been an
insurgent (never a Progressive) all
the time. He has bitterly fought the
bosses and leaders of the Republican
party of Morgan county, the men who
made Republican success in the
county possible Mills, Amos Knoop,
E. A. Crewson, Wes Thomas, Geo.
H. Hubbard, et al, so his flop is not
so very unusual or irregular after all.
