the query; "Can campaign expendi

Harvard graduate and a professed
reformer should bo thus trying to
"turn an election Into a contest or
checkbooks. No such open attempt
to debauch uu election with money

his little say. though It Is reported
that he was seriously handicapped hy

Another matter of gloat importance
which Mr. Poguo mentioned during

hospital on Molokni, whero poor and
Indigent peoplo can bo cared for with
"Another hospital of such character.

that this county 'can do for its peo
