——By F. W. Meyers
The Bulletin bae another guess com
ing about Mike Houlihan. He was not
in the democratic convention as the
Bulletin states. Mr. Houlihan has
been a republican since bis first vote
and this fact has been known to all his
intimates. He is a true-blue Crawford
county boy born and raised in thecoun?
ty. A worker on the farm, in the
school and in the office. Honorable,
trustworthy, an example to ail in gooo
conduct and integrity. A son of one of
the best known families in the county
respected 'by all who know him De
mocracy can gain nothing in an effort
to discredit him or to charge him with
dishonorable motives.
The republican campaign at Vail was
opened on Saturday night by a splendid
speech by the talented young lawyer
and lecturer of Logan, Hon. Geo. W.
Egan. All present were delighted
.with the speakers eloquence his force
ful and pleasing delivery and his inti
mate knowledge and clear exposition
of the issues of the campaign. His
enlogy of President Roosevelt was par
ticularly fine and aroneed ranch en
thnsiasm. Mr. Egan is another volun
teer in the Crawford county campaign
who has placed the republicans of the
county under great and lasting obliga
tion He will speak nest Saturday
iAght at the center school house in Jack
son township and we can assure the
people of that vicinity of a rare treat.
We trust there will be a large attend
ance at this meeting as Mr. Egan is a
brilliant orator, worthy of the largest
Judge Conner has had eight meetings
in the county during the past two
weeks. All of them, save when the
weather was distinctly adverse, were
well attended and all were listened to
with marked interest. Working all
day in the court room or the office and
driving from twelve to thirty miles
each night is no light task and the re
publicans can but feel that Judge Con
ner has done his entire duty by them.
The democrats who have listened to
their speeches with as much apparent
interest as the republicans, can butfeel
that Judge Conner is true to his colors,
and not afraid to speak his convictions.
Me has abused no one, but has present
ed an array of facts and figures and
logic which cannot fail to make an im
pression. The cheap attempts on the
part of the Bulletin to meet these
speeches by ridicule and by insinua
tion that the democrats of Crawford
are not open to reason are not only
harmless, but tbey are insulting to the
voters who see more in politics 'than
the distribution of county plums. The
party that is afraid to present its is
sues fully and fairly and freely is a
party to be distrusted. The Bulletin's
method oftprocedure is simply in ac
cord with that legal maxim, "When
you have no case, abuse the witness
The Republicans of Crawford would
indeed be ungrateful did they not re
turn their thanks to Hon. Geo. 1).
Perkins'for the splendid speech which
he made at Charter Oak last Tuesday
night. The meeting was well attended.
Hon. J. P. Conner made a brief but
forceful introductory speech, paving
the way byj his accurate statement of
facts, for the brilliant recital of events
with which Mr. Perkins followed. We
have^heard Mr. Perkins on numerous
occasions, we have been pleased to sit
at his feet, learning from the brilliant
editorial^columns of the Journal, but
never have we heard or read his utter
ance when it appealed to us as more
cozent.j -more bright, more versatile,
more filled^with a profonnd knowledge
of men|andfof events than it did at that
comparatively Ismail evening meeting
at Charter Oak. If every voter in
Crawford fcould have been present the
republican ticket would sweep the
countyithis^fall.fc There is nothing too
good| forJMr. Perkins and it is our sin
cere hope that the republicans of Iowa
will soon fittingly recognize the merit
of this honest, patriotic' forceful and
conscientious'editor and statesman. In
behalf {of his'audikrs and the republic
ans of iCrawford- county we thank Mr.
Perkins for his splendid effort and for
the spirit of friendship which prompted
Let no one accuse Parker of being
cowardly. In his letter of acceptance
he refers to the low prices of the Cleve
land administration and says his elec
tion wiil bring them back. Now, what
do you think of that?
Wil| Address Roosevelt First Voters
and Others at City Hall.
On Friday |night the Roosevelt First
Voters will hold their first open session
at the city^hall. President McCon
naughey announces that a good pro
gram has been arranged including an
address by Hon. P. E. C. Lally. The
meeting will not be confined to first vo
ters and all are urged to attend, both to
hear a good speech and to encourage
the young men in their work.
Down at Manilla we met a good
friend, 8 retired farmer, living at hit
ease and giving his children the benefit
of good schools. He said he quit farm
ing because |he was getting along in
years, did not care to work much him
self and hired help was so expensive
•Why," he said, "I can't get a man novr
for less than 825 to $27 per month
During Cleveland times I could get
good man for $10 a month," and then "nt
scratched his head aud addci "Yee.
and I had to let the man go, because
could't raise the ten dollars."
These are the "low prices'
ker would have us return to.

Carries Away Six Blue Ribbon Prizes at
the St, Louis Exposition
His Winnings Amount to $2,000
He Captures the Highest Award Made at the Exposition and
is Chosen to Respond to President Francis' Address
"to the Cattlemen
W. A. McHenry succeeded in capturing the Premier Cham
pionship prizes for both breeder and exhibitor,considered the high
est awards made at the World's St. Louis Fair. This award was
determined by the largest amount of prizes won in class for Aber
deen-Angus cattle and also being the most successful breeder. He
also won the aged herd for his own breeding, his winnings amount
ing to $2000.00. His aged bull, Western Star, won the first
prize in a competition with sixteen bulls. His two year old bull
Censor, was placed second and his bull calf, Choice Goods, first
prize, He took six first prizes, three second and three third
Mr. McHenry was also honored by the exhibitors in that he was
chosen from among them to respond to a complimentary address
given by President Francis of the exposition. Mr. McHenry was
equal to the occasion, and spoke at some length. He stated that
the exhibitors heartily appreciated the splendid treatment accord
ed them and the absolute spirit of fairness which had actuated the
stock judges. He gave President Francis the credit for having
done more than any other man to provide the largest prize fund
ever given at a live stock show. The McHenry herd of Aberdeen
Angus cattle is so well known throughout the United States, that
it is becoming a household word.
Mr. McHenry has received two very highly gratifying letters
of congratulation for his success as a breeder and exhibitor at the
Exposition, one from Charles F. Mills, chief of the department of
live stock at the St. Louis exposition and one from F. D. Tomson
of Cedar Rapids, who is a representative of the Iowa Homestead
published at Des Moines. We publish the letters below and we
feel sure that every reader will be interested in reading them and
will appreciate the honor which has been bestowed upon Mr. Mc
Henry and the county as well.
