Morgan Commissioner. 3rd Dlst J. R. Guilbert The Mankato Advocate says that during all the years Mr. Reeder has been in congress he has not done a thins for the benefit of his district. wen, somebody has done things that have benefited his district, as all- round prices were never so good when the people had things to sell; money was never before so plentiful here, nor ine district so prosperous. May- De the republican measures which Mr. Reedersurpported had nothing to do with this happy change of affairs since the last democratic administra tion. That is a matter of opinion; but there is one thing about which there is no dispute, and that is that the democratic party did not bring these things to pass. No democrat living would have the hardihood t ciaim credit tor measures that thev have opposed and fought at every turn in the road; measures which accord ig to tneir vehement predictions would bring distress and ruin. It 1 hardlv thinkable therefore, that the people of the Sixth will turn down a man who has had his shoulder be hind all these measures that have re sulted so happily for the country, in oraer to give Ins place to a young man who has had no experience, but those ica nuuiu lead mm to oppose them all even after their beneficence had been demostrated. Another thing about Mr. Reeder which men ol all parties know, is that no congress man in Kansan has done more person any, ior ins district than he has. The Advocate without half trying, can find hundreds of men in its own party tuau win testify or Mr. Reders plain taming enorts to serve them. In re sponse to the Advocate's challenge we migiiL mentioa just one thing that Mr. Reeder has done for his district. ne nas secured from the goverment k f T T -..c t,. xiays reserve, comprising 4, uuw acres or land and thirty build iuKs upon which has been established a Drancu of the State Agricutural College, and the experiments farm in the world. Among other Items for the benefit of the district, three hun dred varieties of wheat from all parts of the world are now being tested there. Mr. Reeder has successfully handled 1,500 pension cases for the soldiers of his district, populists, dem ocrats and republicans alike, and there is not a district id the United States that Is better supplied with the rural routes. We venture the assertion that there is not a man in this district that has ever written a letter to Mr. Reeder and failed to receiva a prompt and courteous reply, and that no service he was able to render was ever withheld. Our m tion is, that this is about the sort of congressman that the people of this district like. Perhaps the Advocate would be willing to tell us some one thing Congressman Baker or Congress man McCormick ever did for this dis trict. Jewell County Republican.

He is well qual ified and we are sure of his re-election. That First Vote. COMMISSIONER 3RD DISTRICT J. R. Guilbert, of Banner, isanotner or our old soldiers with an excellent war record and it is well known to the people of Trego county. Mr. Gilbert is a man of excellent stand ing and possesses ability and quali ties which will admirably fit him for the office to which he aspires. The choice of the people could not have oeen better and we bespeak a good majority ior mm. IT elected, he will discharge his duties carerul ly and in a manner satisfactory to the public. I) : .- i - . ma large acquaintance Helps him to know the needs or the people. Don't rail to vote for J. R. Guilbeit. a larmer tells the Capital that he rid his farm of rats in the following manner: "On a very large number of pieces of shingles I put about one- half a teaspoon of molasses, and on that, with my pocket knife, I scrape a small amount or concentrated lye, and then place the shingles around under the stable floors and under the cribs. The next rooming I found forty dead rats, and the rest ''vamixn ed" the farm and left for parts un known. I have cleaned many farms iu the same way and have never known it to fail." It seems like an extravigant state ment, but 25 per cent of the vote that will be polled this yesr will be "first votes" for president. 'How important then that tbe vounft man who casts his first vote this fall, should make the question of politics a study for tne next month. J. here was never a time when there was quite as much good literature being scattered over the country as this year. There are also hundreds and thousands of good speakers holding meetings all over the country, who are competent to furnish the best of information. The young man who will cast his first vote for president this year should not sit down and be content to vote as his father has been voting, un less after a careful consideration he believes be has been supporting those measures which are calculated to pro duce the best results. He should read the literature of both sides and listen to the argument adduced by both sides, and when he has carefully digested them, and decided for him self, he will be prepared to discharge the responsible duties of an elector. The Republican party invites the first voter to make a study of its re- eord for the last 48 years covering a period of the country's greatest achievements. Compare it with the record which the Democratic party has made, when it had control of the affairs of this country and vote with the party which you think has been the most consistant, and the one which gives the best promise or fu ture usefulness to the country and her happy and contented people. The Democratic party has had con trol of the affairs of this country eight years of the last 48. Four years of that time a majority of congress was opposed to the Demociatic policy and they were notable to oat their tiieories into operation, but the sec ond administration of Mr. Cleveland he had a majority in both branches of congress in sympathy with him and during that four years we were treat ed to a genuine Democratic adminis tration. The young voter ought to acquaint himself with the conditions that prevailed at that time and com pare them with the conditions during the next Tour years when the Repub- cans had control or all branches or the goverment. After such compar- son you will be able to cast an intel igent vote and if you are guided sole ly by such motives you will have al ied yourself with a party where you will be at home all the balance oi our life. We believe that if such care is ex ercised you will cast your first vot for Roosevelt and a congress to help him uphold the policies of his party. but if your decision is witli the Dem- crats it is your duty to cast youi vote for the candidates of that party Don't be led into voting against your judgment by any man who ma feel that he has a personal grievance against some individual on the tick et. Vote your principles and you will never regret your act. Phillips burg Dispatch. SENATOR LONG. Last Thursday evening. U. S. Sena tor Chester I. Long spoke on the pol itical issues of the day.
