Y., who discussed the political situation from his party dpoint. The speaker was in sured by Gen. M. W. Sheafe, io made a short and felicitous speech, criticized the republican party, and propounded the only remedy in the democratic party. ur 16 page paper is a hummer week,iisn't it? Wait till our Siaftwnd contest gets started. "We expect to do big things this winter. With a 2500 trip hammer circula tion, the News will be the recog nized business pounder of the state. Mr. Merchant, you really can't afford NOT to advertise in the News. You may think it business to reach one-third the people for one-half the price, but wouldn't it pay better to reach 'em all? Think it over, up one side and down the other, write out some copy, and take a shot at it next week. The republicans and democrats both had big doings in the city this week. Monday evening both held rallies, tbe republicans in the Grand and the democrats in the Goss. From the attendance at the two meetings it would not seem as if the democrats had much show in this city at any rate, tho, as the Dutchman said, you can't always sometimes tell." Gov. Crawford, and Messrs. Martin, Vessey, Gam ble and Day held forth at Ithe re publican rally, and an enthusiastic and inspiring meeting was the re sult From the spirit displayed,and the speeches made, it would seem that the republican split has been healed and that now both factions have forgotten their differences and are both headed in the same direc tion in support of the republican ticket.

In his speech he discussed the situ ation and gave many reasons why the country should vote for Taft.in whose' interest he is touring" the country. The house was well filled and the address listened to with the closest interest. As a man who has accomplished big things Gov.Huglies is a man worth listen ing to. A marked feature of his address was the entire absence of mud slinging,which is such a char acteristic feature of so much polit ical talk. The distinguished fvisi tor was received by a large dele gation of Watertown's business men at the station, as well as by Gov. Crawford and the other state nota bles who were present at the rally the evening before. The visit of governor of New York is bound to influence the voters in this Bection. life.

It is a business proposition, ladies, and most any lady who has a little time to spare can win either the first or second prize, both of which are well worth hustling for. The fire whistle blew for thirty minutes last Tuesday morning in honor of Gov, Hughes of New York who passed thru Watertown and gave the republicans a little back door hand out. The whistle sounded like the dying bray of the democratic donkey. Brother Lowe, the poor Indian, who presides over the destinies of the Henry Independent, was scouting around Watertown this week.
