Milwaukee, Sept. 29.—Young Robert
M. La Follette, in being elected over
whelmingly to a seat in the United
States senate here Tuesday, not only
rolled up m majority in excess of
130,000 votes, but he carried 70 out of
the 71 counties in the state.
With less than 350 precincts miss
ing, all of which are in the outlying
wooded districts of the state where
telephone facilities are lew and the
vote light, the record shows that young
Bob carried counties by majorities that
unheard of before.

Republican wing of the party in the
state, went over to the opposition, La
Follette carrying it by a plurality over
Dithmar of 216 votes. The vote stood
La Follette, 3,376; Dithman, 3,160.
'This was not the only, county in the
First district, formerly the hotbed of
the regulars, to go over to the man
who indorsed the platform of the La
Follette-Wheeler party of 1924. Racine
connty capitulated to the new 30-year- '
old senator by a vote of 6,308 for him
to 3.189 for Ditnmr. Walworth coun
ty, still another in the district, saw La
Follette a winner, the county going
2,371 for the new senator to 2,234 for '
Dithmar. Standing alone in all the
state, Rock County came through for
Dithmar. The vote there was 6,634 for}
Dithmar and 4,889 for La Follette. 1
But in the western, the northern,

that astounded even his own hench
A heavy rainstorm that started late
in the afternoon all over the north end

B. Gates, arrested Monday in connec
tion with the suspension of the Globe
National bank in Denver, was state
treasurer of Wyoming from 1915 to j
1919. He was engaged in banking at
Worland when elected state treasurer,
but during his term became interested,
in the oil business and upon his retire
ment from office, moved to Denver be
cause his oiil interests might be more
advantageously directed from the

president, and had other oil interests.
Mr. Gates was born in 1884 at Au
burn, Ill, He came to Wyoming in
1902, locating at Thermopolis, where
he was employed in a bank. In 1906
he assisted in the organization of the
First National Bank of Worland, be
came its cashier and moved to Wer
, land. He was mayor of Worland for,
four years (1910-1914), and repre
sented Washakie county in the house
of the legislature from 1914 to 1916.
During his service as state treas-jjiy
urer, Mr. Gates was exofficio a fnem- j
her on the state land board, which, j
during that period, granted many t
highly valuable leases on state-owned
oil lands, including the Midwest's lease I

Creek field, oftimes deferred -to as
, the "richest square mile on earth."

According to the most successful concerns
in the country it does. No matter what you
have to sell it pays to tell the public about
it. Mail order houses employ no salesmen
except printer's ink and if local merchants
hope to compete with them they too must ad
vertise. We venture the assertion that there
is more money in Red Lodge than any town
in Montana fur it's size and if all of the
money that is sent away for merchandise
were spent here at home this would be the
most prosperous town in the state.
The buying public is not entirely to blame.
The merchants should do their share and ex
press a desire for more business and tell the
public what they have to offer and that they
want more business and will appreciate it.
Mr. Merchant, if your business is not what
you think it should be maybe it is your fault.
Carbon county is one of the richest coun
ties in the state. Carbon county has the
best coal mines in the states and ranks as
one of the best agricultural and stock rais
ing counties. If the merchants are not get
• ting their share of the business there is
something wrong. The buying public and
the merchants are not together. They do
not understand each other. Why not try
advertising in the News? It won't cost much
for the experiment
We call attention to the J. C. Penney Com
pany who started with one small store in
Wyoming and now has nearly seven hun
dred stores scattered throughout the United
States. The success of this company was
due to consistent advertising, telling the
public what they had for sale. They never
conduct special sales. Every week and
every day there is a regular sale—they are
constantly telling the public about their
goods and wares. We do not advocate cut
ting prices. Merchants are entitled to a fair
profit and must have it to continue in bus
iness. We do advocate advertising and we
know it pays.
The News has the largest circulation of
any paper in Carbon county. We want the
public to know that we appreciate their pat
ronizing the News and we also appreciate it
just as much if you will patronize the merch
ants who advertise in the News, for it is
these merchants who make it possible for
the News to exist and enable the editor to
continue the work for the community which
he has been doing, and which will be com
pleted if the merchants and the public want
it completed. We cannot continue working
for you unless you help us.
