night at 9:42 of uraemic pnisong caused

years of age, and by reason of his

position had earned the sobriquet of

national committco, announces that ho
has called a meeting of tho national
committee for November 12th in Chi

I The Situation in a Nutshell. .
Mr. Editor:
I have read tho bull moose article in
your Tuesday edition. 1 think tho pic
ture of tho writer cf tho articlo is very
good. It may bo tho articlo is also
good; much of it, howover, I am unable
to understand. If I. am not mistaken
the object of tho writer is to make nn
! appeal for votes for bull moose candi
Why vote that ticket? Hns its candi
date for president any chance for elec
tion? No, not the least. This is gen
erally conceded by membors of all
parties, who aro in touch with tho sit
uation. Then why throw your vote
away? If you beliovo in the teachings'
of tho democratic party: if you enjoy
tho conditions which havo followed
democratic administrations during the
past ou years; it you llKo tho demo
cratic low prices for what you have to
sell, as well as what you buy, why not
say so by your ballot and voto that
ticket. If pn tho other hand you know
you, havo enjoyed a greater depjree of
prosperity under republican administra
tions, and you aro satisfied with tho
prices which you recoivo for what you
sell, and desire tho same to bo con
tinued and maintained, then voto the
republican ticket. Do not be be mis
led into believing that tho democratic
tariff law will cheapen what you bu
and not cheapen also what you sel
Remember that tho democratic party
stands on tho taritt question whore it
has stood for GO years. Romembor
also that like causes produce like
effects. Tho great body of voters still'
remember what followed tho passage
of tho democratic tariff laws in tho
past. If you like it, vote for it If
you don't like it then don't be misled
by the statement of tho men who are
running for office, that the tariff law
has nothing to do with the prosperity
which the voters now enjoy.
The bull moose candidate is in tho
fight, not because he expects to bo
elected, but for tho purpose of prevent
ing the suscess of tho republican party.
Tho republican party has not changed
since the Chicago convention. Roosevelt
desired to be its candidate. If ho had
been successful it would now bo a good
party, aril ho would be singing its
praises all over the land. Ho was not
successful. He did not get the nomina
tion, and now it is a bad party. Roose
velt's policy is to rule or ruin. His
position is, if you will not elect me,
then I will see that you do not elect
any other person. Will tho votora be a
party to such treachery?
One word to those whose only product
they have for sole is thoir labor. Do
you remember the conditions which ex-
lsmuui. uiu ciusu oi vie lUHb uumucruuc
administration in 1890? Do you remem
ber that wages were not only low, but
that there were two men for every job?
Do you want to return to that condition?
If you do, vote either for Wilson or
Roosevelt, for a vote for Poosevelt is
giving one-half of your vote to Wilson.
If the farmer feels that all he has to sell
is too high, my advice to him is to voto
against the party who is responsible
for the high prices, and by your ballot
ask for a return of the prices of 1S9G,
when you sold your cows for $10.00,
your horses for about the same and your
wheat for from 30 cents to 35 cents per
bushel. Remember that the democratic
party stands on the tariff 'question
where 'it stood when Cleveland was
Remember also that the bull mooso
candidate stands for" anything and
everything that will add strength to his
movement, and thereby defeat the re
publican candidate.
This is the time for the voter to cast
his ballot for his own interest, and not
tor any politician who seeKs revenge
and not prosperity.
