"The democrats in this county are
well organized and enthusiastic. I !
have not been able to bear of a Single j
democrat in the county who will not

republicans aro about evenly divided

if necessary to defeat the other."

meeting has been called to form one i

turn to the district to make a vigorous
campaigTi until the election day to win
tbe election for congress.
Mr. Tavenner's deep interest In the
welfare of the district has been dem
onstrated time and again while he has
been active as a correspondent in
Washington for over 2,000 newspapers
in all parts of the country.
In fact, he has been so persistent
and prominent in denouncing the evils
that have crept into governmental af
fairs that some of the newspapers that
i have all the ear-marks of being con
! trolled by the interests are trying to
I poison the minds of the people against :
him, but it won't work. Mr. Tavenner,
although a young man, has made a j

A recent good act brought about by
Mr. Tavenner through the pergonal
friendship of Hon. Champ Clark is be-
1 ing favorably commented on in all
j parts of the district, and the favors '
I are be.ng appreciated by democrats ;
and republicans alike. Instead of en-1
I cumbering the mails with speeches j
j made for political purposes, Mr. Clark
I sent out a list of valuable bulletins of
great interest to farmers and In homes
in both city and country, and stated in
a letter that those who wanted them j
could check the ones desired and Mr.
Tavenner would personally see to It I
that earh document would be sent !
These bulletins cover a wide variety j
of subjects and much useful lnforma-'
t.on. They are prepared at a cost of
hundreds of thousands of dollars of the i
people's money by the agriculturcl de-1
partment, but comparatively few ieo- i
(pie of this district would have know.-1
about them if It had not been for;
the thoughtfulness and hard work of;
Mr. Tavenner, and his good friend and '
adviser. Speaker Clark. j
No one of sensa would suppose that j
share of any good that Is done at the
capital. Clyde H. TavenneV has been
doing this sort of good acts for tbe peo
ple of his home district ever since he
has made his headquarters at Wash
ington. He has done them willingly,
cheerfully, without ostentation favors
for old soldiers, hard work to hold and
build up the arsenal at Rock Island,
real labor with voice and pen to ex
pose and defeat the iniquitous Taylor
system which would practically make
slaves of working people In factories.
Tavenner, through his Se nl
all his public actions, has sndVn him
self to be right with the masses as
against the classes, and he is the kind
of a man this district should have and
will have to represent us In congress.
