Hlitorlcal SofcUtT Sttvte Wibumi TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR. NORTH PLATTE, NEB., OCTOBER 29, 1912. No. 78 MR km-ffitMv 4ii4l 1 Political Advertisement Why I'm a "Bull Moose." Why You Should Vote the the Progressive Ticket. Honest intent with weakness never made a man. Tho emblem of the Pro gressive Party (tho Bull Moose) is quite as honorable as either the ' "braz en ass" or the monster brute elephant. The "bull moose" carries no excess baggage in front, does not wear his wings on the side of his head, nor kick out from behind like a mule. Hence to be called a "Bull Moose" is no dis honor. The progressive party represents tho best interests of the people. It is championed, propagated and vouch safed by the most honorable, best posted, and greatest men of our na tion. It is a preponderance of evidence within itself to all the people. Read its platform; compare it with any of the others, and you will say that it is the greatest and best platform ever given to the American people. It rep resent a just and righteous cause to a great and industrious nation. During my entire life and business career I have never before taken any concerted interest or action in politics and never before since, Abraham Lincoln's day has the people of this country been face to face with condi tions as they now exist. Politico is the appellation of the most monumental, and greatest business of the twentieth century. It is a vast corporation. A federation of all products of the soil, manufactiued products, business, labor and capital. It is an amalgamation of every resource of this United Kingdom of which every man and woman is a stockholdei. In this vast business of political government, each one and all of us own equal rights. It is for every voter and his duty to exerciso his right of fianchise. The rich and powerful give to the cause of politics not only their vote, but their time and energy, as well as vast sums of money. What does the common people give? Why my friend, not hard ly their votes. I ask you, is it any wonder that the American people are governed by Boss Rule and Corporate Greed. Is it any wonder that tho lab oring man and woman are forced to work 12 to 16 hours a day? and the farmer takes what he can get for his products and both pay the other fellows Miss Vivian Knox has accepted a position as stenographer in the office of Attorney M. E. Crosby. 1 I KiwdiDnun"Qathes, ALL WOOL. HANnTAItOPEP Copyright, jqi. W. B. Kirichbaum Co, prices for what he buys. You are offered this year nn oppor tunity to divest yourself of these con ditions, to eliminate the old and to put on the new. The progressive party offers you an avenue of escape from the worn out and thread bare promises of the two old parties if you will accept it. This is not a time for petty preju dices, but a time to act. Tho pro gressive party has come to stay. It is destined to bo the people's choice for it is logically "The People's Party." Tho greatest argument against the leader of the progressive party and one of the greatest and most wonderful men this nation has ever known, and the argument most frenuentlv heard is "The Third Term." This is tho silliest of all arguments of a national campaign which has contained much silliness, and one not worthy of consideration. Thore never was a public man in closer communion and morein sympathy with the people's cause than Theodore Koosevelt. tins is vouchsated by all the nation's great men and more so, by those who know him best. I would most earnestly call your at tention to our candidate for the U. S. Senate George W. Norris, a more con scientious, just and honorable man neverlived. He is a man of the people, for tho people. His good work while in congress, his ability, his character and his large experience, all serve to qualify him as the right man and the people's choice, he is our friend, vote forhim. Frank Armstrong, the good old honest, square and level headed Frank. A farmer and one of the largest cattle feeders in the state He generally gets what he goes after. Ho is not a pro fessional politician but a practical and successfu. farmer, stockman and busi ness man. You need him and he is going to bo ejected. He will help you. Every farmer in this district as well as every laboring man should vote and work forhim for congress, from this the Gth congressional district. Don't forget Frank Armstrong for Congress. Yours for better conditions, more prosperity, cleaner and more respect able politics. Ed. J. VANDniuiooF, Chairman. J. E. Sebastian left Sunday evening for Omaha to spend a few days on business. SIR!
