Tells All About Alleged Salary Grab and
Congressman Dick Morgan has been
charging that Elmer Fulton was the
recipient of a salary grab while in
Congress. This has been about the on
ly charge that Dick has been able to
makt. Fulton made a full and com
plete answer tn that charge in his do
bate with Morgan at Cherokeo last
Friday. It is h follows:
''Mr. Morgan charges rrn with
drawing $0,000 In salnry moro than I
was entitled to under tho bw nnd
that this amount W3 more than nny

brand this charge ks beitiK, not only
false in every particular, but alio

tactics. Just think a moment Do
you believe that a Democratic member
of Congress could induce a Kepubli

' soUry than he was entitled to and

1 and idiotic," is unreasonable and In
