He closed his talk with a stirring denunciation of the Republican poli loios that had permitted the looting of the New Haven and the Rock Is land railroad, blamed these for the "hard times," and declared that "we should do everything we can to keep in power and help the man who will fight such practices, so no J. Pierpont Morgan or any one else can rob the : widows and orphans of this country." j Mr. Troy introduced Charles Drury jas the "Woodrow Wilson candidate ! for congress," and as a "man who ! wouldn't go to sleep on the job as has Johnson, a man who has the conh dence, esteem and respect of the pres ident and his secretary of state and a man who can do something for us if elected." Mr. Drury opened his ad -1 dress with the statement that Bis ter's fearless, economical and efficient administration was one of his strong est essets in this campaign. Discusses Peace Policy. "Eighteen months ago, when Presi dent Wilson was inaugurated, he found this country in a deulorablo condition," he continued, "its dollar diplomacy had broken down until this ! nation had a misunderstanding with j nearly every nation on the globe. See the difference today—the United i States, on account of this war, is practically conducting the diplomacy of the world. Before, the arbitrary taking of the Panama canal zone had ; scared the South American nations so ] ! badly they refused to trade with us; | only three weeks ago a commission ! landed in this country begging us to sell to them. You know the condi-1 I tion we inherited in Mexico, but a| new condition has come, a terrible I war has been averted —my, what the I people of European nations would i give today for a little of our watch- I fill waiting or 'grape juice' diplo macy!" | He declared the success of this : foreign policy, a policy of peace, ! enough to entitle any administration | to support, but then recounted the constructive legislation of the past 18 ' ! months, mentioning first the tariff bill, which he called the best and most scientific tariff bill ever passed, with it an income tax law bringing a • revenue of $85,000,000 without' 1 which, he said, the war tax would i have had to be that much more in stead of less, as the Republicans claim, and lauded the currency leg islation. "The Republicans haven't one sin gle issue with which to come before you this year and ask support," he declared. "I defy any man to name one. The candidacy of a Republican is an insult to your intelligence—for the first time in history they haven't put out a campaign book —they haven't anything to put in one." He referred to Johnson's record in congress, calling attention to "the peculiar feature that it contains 46 noes and only 6 yeas," adding that "you might as well wind up a graph aphone and send It down there, or the family parrot." He urged them to ask Johnson a few questions, "ask him if he would repeal the currency legislation, ask him how he voted when Wilson asked congressional authority in regard to Mexico. I'll tell you—he was one of the 37 who didn't have manhood enough or patriotism enough to stand by the president, one of the 37 who wanted to declare war on Mexico. "I'll tell you what's the matter with Johnson. Up to three years ago he was a Democrat of the Cleveland type, a negative Democrat, and he used to sit In Tacoma—and I've been with him—writing Democratic plat forms always starting with, 'we view with alarm', and when the Republi cans lost out he had to go over to them so he could continue to 'view with alarm'." He accused Warburton of "politi cal larceny for trying to steal our president" and said he was "willing to ride the Bull Moose, the elephant and the donkey or anything else, just to get. to the public crib. Only One Issue in Campaign. "But there's only one issue in this campaign," he said in conclusion. "Do you want to send to congress a man who will fight Wilson, the presi dent who is keeping peace, or a man who will help him? On the morning of November 4 the newspapers will flash the story: Wilson repu diated or Wilson upheld—which shall it be? I want to say to you that I believe nine-tenths of the people of this district are in heart and sympa thy with Woodrow Wilson and I be lieve they will vote that way Novem ber 3." i In common with Messrs. Troy and Drury, Judge Black, the last speaker, urged the election of a legislature 'that would aid Governor Lister and not fight him. He talked in a general way of the political issues, telling his hearers he was not appealing to their intellects but to their conscien ces, so they would vote for the best interests of their country and not for party success. "If you do that, Charles Drury will go to congress by a big majority apd I v will be elected senator by 50,000," he declared. "Your country's glory and welfare should be your greatest aim, when you vote," he continued. "No good citizen loves his party more than his country, and there is not a thought ful man or woman in the state today who does not approve of the grea' Wilson. Uphold him, then, by send ing men to congress who will support him." I He told how platform promises had become more or less jokes until Wil son became president, "and he, a plain, honest man, thought promises ought to be kept," the speaker said. "We promised you tariff revision downward and we gave it to you; we promised you currency reform and we 'gave It to you; we promised you anti trust laws and we are giving them to you. The Republican party had been promising these for 30 years—the Democrats gave them to you in IS months." Black Scores Itooscvclt He called the Progressives "broth ers-in-law of the Democrats" an urged them to "get over where the; belong; said Roosevelt had been d vorced from the Republican party for non-support; scored Roosevelt for no: doing when president the things he i« .advocating now; declared .1. Pierpon: Morgan scared him in the 1007 panic i until Roosevelt permitted the Ten nessee Coal & Iron deal, and added: "The money power, Wall Street and the trusts tried to scare Wilson I>> ; beginning io cry 'calamity,' but Wil- ' son did not surrender. He freed this j country from Wall Street's power b\ ; placing the funds of the treasury in I the banks where it was needed i throughout the country, so that in- j terest charges on money that had jumped from 2 per cent to 20 per cent in Wall Street fell to 1 per I cent in less than 10 days." * ' He spoke of the 1907 panic, which ! he sarcastically called an "almost i:a possible thing, for it happened under I a Republican president and a Repub lican congress"; lauded Wilson's for-j eign policy and added: "There is no: i a man or a woman in this country j who, ii they tell you what fhoy hon-1 estly think. <s rot mighty thankful!

"That is why T ray that, if you love i your country more than you do your! party, it is your duty to vote for men I who will support. Wilson." taxpayer' LEAGUE MCDOWELL ANSWERS REPUBLI CANS' CHAROES— CATOX PRESIDENT. Replying to the statements made by the Republican County Central committee in political advertising last week to the effect that the lea gue had been manipulated by Demo cratic politicians, Walter F. McDow ell, temporary president of the Thurs ton County Taxpayers' league, dur ing the course of a report to the meeting at the public library last Sat urday said: "It has been charged from some political sources that this league was under the manipulation of Democrat ic politicians. This charge is surely illnatured and uncalled for. If any man has had a predominating in fluence in this organization it has been Mayor Mottman, a life-long Re publican and one not easily charged with being manipulated. In this con nection also might be mentioned Fred W. Stocking, a member of our present executive committee and of like political faith with Mr. Mott man." Owing to the stormy weather, there was only a small attendance at this meeting, but it accomplished the per manent 'organization of the league by the election of A. 8. Caton, presi dent; Emil Martensen vice president, and L. L. Snow, secretary-treasurer, and these officers, together with Messrs. McDowell and Stocking cbm pose the eexcutive committee. The meeting authorized the appointment of a legislative^committee, to be made by the executive committee. McDowell Suljmits Report. Lack of space forbids the publica tion complete of Mr. McDowell's re port. He recounted the work the league had done, referring especially to the reductions it obtained tn the 1915 budget and commenting: "It has been insistently bourne in upon us that the economies enumer ated were riot made with any refer ence to this league. Why this should be unduly emphasized I do not know, for it would be no disgrace to any board of county commissioners to effect economies by reason of confer ences with representatives o? those who have to pay the taxes. But how ever this may be. it is entirely unim portant. Whether or not the league had a little or no influence at the courthouse, and if the result had been not a single cut in the budget, we would still feel that it was a good th'ng to have met with our county officers and to have talked over with them our common Interests. "County officials are not usually oreffero h"t Rke all of us are liable to misjudgements and miscalcula tions and often need a system of checks and balances, and there is no good reason why there should not be a representative group of voters or ganized in such a way to advise and counsel with them and if necessary criticize those who are selected to serve us in the courthouse. And the county official who resents such a pro cedure is not worthy of office at the hands* of the people and the chances are there is something wrong with the conduct of his department." Makes Several Recommendations. In conculsion he said: "In laying aside the temporary but appreciated honor of official eonnec -;■'-v, organization I would make the following suggestions: "First. That permanent organi zation be immediately effected with officers of the highest standing in the community against whom there will be as little political prejudice as pos sible. "Second. That a legislative com mittee be chosen to whom shall be committed the matter of securing legislation along tax reform l'nes. Mr. Britt has called attention to the extra work put upon the county through the enforced collection of dclinouent city assessments without remunera tion to the county for services ren dered. It is apparently a just de mand that the city collect its own accounts whether delinquent or not. "Also the matter of a change in the law regarding the pay of county commissioners has been the subject 1! you wish fur something extra fine in groceries or fresli fruits you don't h."v< to wisii ong. .lust come into our store and see the tempting eatables we have for you._ We can show you lots of things that you will like.
