That ihe attendance at the In

will exceed that of last year by a*
lenst 25 per cent is shown, most
clearly by the "boosting1' that is
being done from one end of the
surrounding territory to the other.
Within a radius of 250 miles of
Sioux City, the editors of over 600
daily and weekly newspapers have
written to Secretary Wirrick that
they will co-opeate in making the
fair the biggest success yet. So
enthusiastic are these good friends
of the fair that many are giving
editorial commendation of the
warmest sort. Falling in line
with the newspapers, livte stock
men, horsemen, merchants, and
in fact all classes, are writing vol
untarily that thev will talk for
the fair till the last day. There
seem to be no.,sore spots and the
business men of Sioux City who
put up the money to guarantee
the financing of the big fair are
delighted with the support so
GOV. LA FOLLETTE.
Charles Citv (Iowa) Intelligen
cer: We heard Goy.-Senator Rob
ert M. LaFollette, of Wisconsin,
deliver his lecture before the
Charles City Chautauqua last
Tuesday evening. Our judgment
may be faulty, but we were disap
pointed in the man and in the lec
ture. His delivery and bearing
are the theatrical. Hfe did not
impress us as being absolutely
sincere, but rather as a shrewd

He impressed us as being much
like W. J. Bryan in his methods,
but, being a republican and being
successful, he stands in better re-!
pute than does Bryaq. LaFol
lette is too one-sided he sees no
right or good in those against
.whom he contends he is too pes
simistic, and by his power of ora
tory, with which he is well equip
ed. is able to impress his pessi-*
mism upon others and gain their
belief that he is absolutely right.
His contention -for rule by the
popular will everybody must in
dorse, but when he endeavors to
direct that will, asserting that he
is right, he reaches the point
where we cannot entirely agree
with him. That our government
shall be by the popular will we
know, but that LaFollette's di
rection of that will would be bet
ter than the direction by others
we are not yet prepared to accept.
His whole lecture impressed us
with the idea that he was sure he
had discovered all the ills from
which the body politic is suffering
and that he had the only and un
failing remedy for those ills. We
are not yet prepared to believe
that all of that is true. We have
seen and heard too many men
who believed the same thing of
themselves. We cannot believe
with Mr. LaFollette that the
world is going to the bad at the
rate he indicated in his lecture—
we have heard thatstartling claim
made too often before, we cannot
believe the people are worse off
than in the generations past we
cannot believe that they are being
robbed and impoverished, as the
lecturer indicated—not so long as
the evidences of wealth ^.prosperi
