The one big event of the week for
the 'people of the United States and
overshadowing all else in importance
will be the quadrennial national elec

Seven national tickets are in the field',
from which the voters may take their
choice. In 28 states governors or other
state officers are to be elected. Six
states will 'choose justices of the su

In seven states representatives only
are to be elected, and in two represen

NAILING ANOTHER FALSEHOOD
Chicago, Oct. 24, 1908. To Democratic Workers: The statements
which have appeared from time to time in some of the republican news
papers of Chicago, insinuating that the conduct of the state campaign
has not been in the interest of the entire democratic- ticket are false and
are made for the sole purpose of creating ; prejudice and influencing
votes. . '
The democratic campaign has been and is being conducted for the
whole ticket The interest of no candidate is neglected.
I earnestly warn democratic workers of the state to place no credence
in any stories that may be circulated reflecting in any manner on any
candidate on our ticket or on the conduct of the campaign by any of our
committees. It is an old political trick of the opposition and should de
ceive no one. ROGER C. SULLIVAN,
