The Young Men's Democratic Club c Fergus County, address this last letter before election to the voters, test their case in the hands of the electors of Fergus county in the be lief that on November 3 the people of Fergus county will remain true to the doctrines of democracy. We submit to all fail and intelligent and impartial people, the record of the administration of the affairs of the nation, the state and the county under democratic rule and make bold to assert that it has no parallel and no approach in the entire history of the country, in the nation the demo cratic party has in the past eighteen months restored the government to the people's hands. The value of this service cannot be estimated by any known process of calculation and can not be expressed in human terms. _ By virtue of democratic legislation, the people are now in charge of the currency system, through democratic representatives like Tom Stout and Judge Evans, the people made for themselves and for their own use and protection, a tariff law, and through the untiring efforts of Stout and Ev ans, and the balance of the demo cratic congress, have made for the benefit of all the people, regardless of class or creed, innumerable laws as outlined in our previous letters, and which would take considerable time and space to recount. The records of Congressmen Stout and Evans are open to the inspection of all the peo ple of the country and in all instances these records will be found to show that they truly represented the people of Montana in the halls of congress and that they voted in the interests of all the people during the entire ses sion of the greatest congress in the history of the country—the Sixty third congress. In less than a week the people of Fergus county will exercise the high privilege and discharge the patriotic duty of choosing from various parties their representatives for the next two years. The choice is of vast import ance, for its result will determine whether this government shall be by and in the interest of a few or by and for the benefit of all the people. The Young Men's Democratic club has thoroughly canvassed the situa tion and feels safe in submitting that the democratic party, the oldest party in the country, absolutely united, in harmony, the party whic hhas never sold the truth to serve the hour; the party that has remained true to its traditions and its principles and ideals, whether in victory or defeat, is justly ent.iUcd to the suffrage of all the elec tors interested in the party which be lieves that the people from whom this government derives its every just power, the people who pay the taxes and bear the burdens of "the govern ment, and therefore the democratic party demands that these people shall rule. These things which are true of na tional welfare are equally true of the state and county; and the tickets which the democratic party, the party of principle, have placed in the field for the voters' consideration this fall are worthy of your unqualified sup port. The candidate for the state senate —J. E. Lane—a successful business man, is entirely deserving of your vote. His most striking qualities are those possessed by his resourceful ness and being an energetic getter of business. He is a man who Ins trans formed nis own business from a small tenernrise here in Lewistown into one of wonderful magnitude and wRh trade ramifications all over the county. His chief ambition has always been to honestly widen the horizon of his business. It is imnossible to take Gene Lane for anything but what he is, a suc cessful business man. Absolutely in dependent, unfettered, and with clear brain, he i6 without doubt one; of the keenest business men this coun-j ty and state possess and it is to the advantage of all the people of Fergus county that he be elected to the state senate. He is a man who does things, is capable, efficient and in a better position to get for Feigus county the representation which an unsuccessful man in business cannot get. There' are no loose methods about the man-' ner of conducting his own business; there are no economic wastes in his own business, and he is pledged to de vote the same safe and sane and ef-' ficient management .to the affairs of the people of Fergus county as he has: to his own business. We feel from! the sentiment of the vast majority of, the people in the county that they rec-j oginze Gene Lane as u man of brains; and industrial imagination. The personnel of the ticket for the lower house of the legislature is made up of splendid men, and we have been' particular in the investigation of thei calibre of these men. John Ritch, an old resident of the county, active in all that makes for! the betterment of the conditions un-j der which we live, deserves particular attention. He is well known through-! out the county as a careful and exact! business man. It is a well known fact' that at the time he held the office of clerk of the district court, office received the distinction of be-| ing the most complete, had the best set of records of any court in the state, was the most efficient in the manner in which the records kept and from attorneys outside of the county he has received the continued, praise of always being courteous, ready to help everybody and upright; and square in all his dealings. In his own business affairs, since he has been in private life, he has had a marked degree of success; he is a successful rancher and there is every reason to believe that he will give Fergus county the best representation, carrying out the ideals and wishes of the people in the lower house of the legislature efficiently and in the best interests of the people of this county. The rest of the legislative ticket, Harvey Burnett, Ira J. Phillips and Ralph J. Anderson are deserving of your vote. Burnett and Phillips are candidates for re-election and invite a careful inspection of their records. TJiey have always been on the job nnd attended strictly to the business of the people of Fergus county. j The county ticket is one marked by j efficient management in every depart-; ment. Flrmin Tulloek for sheriff;i F. R. Cunningham, clerk and recorder;; Rufus Poland, treasurer; Mike Gur nett, assessor; E. P. Durnen, auditor; j J. Edwin Miller, surveyor, are repre-j sentatives of the vitality of every: growing community, working with un tiring effort to give valuable service to the people who elected them to| these high offices, mindful of the wel-j fare of the county and knowing that, the prosperity of the county depends largely upon the efficient and eco nomic management of these offices,' these men pledge themselves to con tinue to carry out their policy of good service. j The welfare of every man, woman j ned child in the county, their happi-j ness the energy and spirit of all people are the underlying necessity of The Winds Are Whispering U Time For Coats 99 And this store—your store—is ready to show all that is now in coat styles and all that is good in coat materials for Girls Misses and Women.

We have got to make politics a thing in which an honest man can take his part with satisfac lion, because he knows that his opin ions will count as much as the next man's. We have got to set the ener gies and initiative of all the people free, so that the future of the county will be greater than in the past. These the things which these men have been doing for the past two years, they are pledged in continuance of this action, are making a clean and pure campaign, devoid of denunciatory lan werejguage and villiticatioa, eo prevalent in the opposition camp.

Carranza predicts bloody strife if Villa is permitted to rebel. Among other things, the mani festo made public here tonight savs: "General Villa probablv will not for ge t that on May 13, 1911, following the capture of Juarez, General Villa and his then partner, Pascual Orozco, arrested the then provisional presi: dent of the republic, Francisco I. Ma dero. Villa himself called upon the soldiers to execute Madero. "Villa, without consulting the first chief, expelled enmasse all of the Spanish subjects of the Laguana dis ! trict without investigating which ones ; had assisted Huerta and confiscated i their enormous cotton crops and dis posed of some for the benefit of the division of the north and some out siders. j "General Villa, who now appears to champion the clergy, ought to remem ber that in every place which he cap ' tured, during the campaign, he ex pelled the priests and closed the churches. "Villa reproached me for having is sued 30,000,000 pesos in currency. I must state it was imperative that I should pay the costs ofg the adminis tration and at the same time I took up all previous stale and national is sues so as to be able to have a con trol and check on our monetary sys tem. Villa himself in the state of Chihuahua issued 50,000,000 or 60,000, 000 pesos of state money. "I desire to state in this connection that all of the custom house revenues of the state of Chihuahua, as well as the internal revenues, have been ap propriated by Villa without making an accounting to me as first chief." MEXICO CITY, Oct. 28.—In the dis cussion of the various peace plans by the Aguas Calientes convention today, a riot was nearly precipitated by rea son of the acrimonious speeches. A number of the delegates drew their revolvers and spectators in the gallery made a wild dash to escape from the building. The police, how ever, barred all the exists and per mitted nobody to leave the building. Order eventually was restored. The majority of the delegates de clared themselves in favor of the plan of Emiliano Zapata, known as the Ayala plan, in preference to the plan of Guadalupe, which is favored by Venustiano Carranza. GARRISON MAKES PLEA FOR THE RETURN OF THE CONGRESSMEN SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Oct. 28.—Sec retary of War Lindley M. Garrison, sneaking with Governor Walsh and others here tonight, said that the cam paign in Massachusetts had to be con sidered in its national aspect, because a defeat of the democratic candidates would be heralded as a defeat of the president and the principles for which he and the democratic party stand. The secretary said the republicans had no definite program "and our antlered opponent has apparently gone off in search of a sequestered salt lick." He also referred to the republicans and progressives as "unorganized snipers taking pot shots from ambush and cover." -O GEORGIA-MADE GOODS. ALBANY, Ga., Oct. 28.—The George federation of women's clubs, in state convention here, tonight pledged each member of its 244 clubs to make one cotton garment from Georgia-made goods to be sent as a gift to women and children of Belgium, made desti tute by the European war.
