Cummins said in his brief talk on Fairbanks day that he was coming back to Crawford 900n. He has given this county Wednesday Oct. 26th. He will reach Denison in the afternoon and while he will not make a speech here it is purposed to hold a public reception for him at which all may meet and get acquainted with Iowa's famous Governor. In the even ing he will speak at Schleswig where great enthusiasm is already manifested over his coming and where a splendid meeting will be held. The Denison First Voters are planning to attend this meeting in a body and a large number of other Denison people are also planning to go. so that it will be quite a delegation that escorts theGov ernor in his trip through Crawford. The Cummins meeting at Schleswig should be one of the largest of the campaign and republicans from every part of the county should make it a point to attend. We do not know what will be the re sult of the campaign in Crawford. The republicans of this county have been defeated often enough to have learned not to boast either before or after election. This we do know that both on account of the principles involved and the earnest conscientious work be ing done no party ever deserved suc cess more than does the republican party of Crawford. Working against odds they are undismayed and courageous, They are going into^every precinct of the county, not for the pur pose of a still hunt" or to peddie cigars, but to preach the gospel of re publicanism. They are presenting a solid front without factionalism or jealousies. There is no inch of Craw ford county that is -'enemies ground" among the republicans themselves. We would urge upon every man who believes in republican principles, who is satisfied with the present prosperity who believes that Theodore Roosevelt is a braver, more conscientious and more effective man than his opponent, who objects to the ring rule of the county democracy, who would like to see both parties represented on the board of supervisors, to join earnestly and vigorously in the contest of the next month. Let no one be lead astray by the "campaign friendships" and the "campaign cigars" of the candidates of democracy who stand for nothing ex cept their own desire to hold office and to perpetuate ring rule. The only way to destroy the gang is to smite it hip and thigh all along the line from President to Supervisor. The republicans of Denison would indeed be uugrateful if they failed to appreciate the good work of the Hon. W. E. Bainbridge of the National Committee in sending to Denison for the afternoon of Fairbanks day two splendid orators as Hon. J. W. Ownby of Texas and Hon. J. H.Schively of the state of Washington. We who have had the habit of thinking that Iowa produces about all the orators worth mentioning found that the Hawkeye state was not the only pebble on the beach, and that from the Lone Star state and from the Pacific# Slope come orators who rank with the very first From 1:30 to nearly four o'clock these two men held a large audience in the opera house in silent attention save for the outbursts of laughter at their witty sallies and the enthusiastic ap plause with which their log.c and elo quence were received. It is no won der that the national committee sent them to Wisconsin to fill the dates Secretary Shaw was obliged to cancel. Judge Ownby who is United States District attorney in a Texas district embracing fortytwo of the great counties of that immense state is a man of commanding presence and genial aspect. His sarcasm was fine and subtle, his logic keen and convincing and his eloquence of that pleasing graceful but forceful style for which the Sunny South is famonB. He is a hard man to follow and the larger part of the audience felt that Mr. Schively, who is a,much smaller man was "up against it" when he commenced speak ing. It seemed that Judge Ownby had covered the ground, answered all the democratic arguments and closed the case. The universal judgment now is that Schively is a "peach". He found a whole lot tc say. He strengthened the argument by Judge Ownby by new and apt illustration, told well-pointed stories that brought down the house, while his bursts of genuine oratory fairly carried the audience away with enthusiasm. After the meeting the gentlemen were driven about the city by Messrs. McHenry and McLennan and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of our streets and homes and resplendent hills. They visited the McHenry stock farm and saw the best black cattle on earth and taken altogether we trust they carried with them as pleasant an opinion of Denison as Den ison retains of them and their elo quence. The audience was a thoroughly representative one, nearly every precinct in the county being well represented by bright man capable of appreciating the argu ment and carrying it to their friends. In this way we believe the effect of the meeting will be far reaching and that Ownby and Schively will be remem bered in old Crawford. May they come again, both of them. After maintaining a discreet silence on the stump until three weeks before the national election, after knowing that the republicans had made pro gress had aroused some enthusiasm, and, moreover, had arranged fo their speaking campaign, the democratic leaders, through next county clerk, O. W. Wheeler, have issued an elev enth hour challenge for a series of ten joint debates. Doubtless the democrat ic managers would like to get the re publicans to pay half their livery bills, and wonld like to take advantage of the impetus which the republican cam paign has acquired, The only hope of democracy in this county is not through an appeal to reason, but through an ap peal to party pride and prejudice. If, then, they could arrange a series of debatesthat would inflame partizanship and draw party liues among the people, they would accomplish their purpose whether their debaters mude any ar gument or not. We would suggest that the republi cans have been in practical joint debate with democracy ever since the cam paign commenced. The halls and school houses of the county can doubt less be as easily secured by the demo crats as by the republicans. Let them do this and there wiil be joint debate throughout the county in the larger and better 'sense of the word better because it will not be an "oratorical contest," but a contest of principle. The challenge made by Mr. Wheeler is a fitting sequel to the Macedonian cry which the managers of democracy have sent to Des Moines for help, realizing that the majority of people are satisfied with present pros perity and with Theodore Roosevelt, The Republican campaign in Crawford has' a higher purpose than to "show off" its local speakers the object ,is to present the truths of republicanism and from this object it will not be drawn aside even for the glorious prize of win ning a few cheap debates from Maurice O'Connor or S. V. O'HareorG. L. Cas well. We have been thinking about it, and have concluded that it is even better to struggle along as a p-p-p-p, what ever that may be, than to be a p-u-p, lik the editor of the Bulletin. The real friends of Leslie M. Shaw are not trying to weight him down by attaching a presidential boom to him at this date. It is true that the great mass of the people of Denison believe him to be big enough to fill the presi dential chair, and jwould be more than delighted to see him elected to that position either la 1908 or any other year. It is in fact much too early for any man either to declare himself or to be declared a candidate. Under the circumstances, therefore, we do not intend to quarrel with Con gressman Smith because he paid Sena tor Fairbanks the very common com pliment paid to distinguished guests upon such occasions, thit of wishing for them some higher position. Neith er do we intend to become worked up about it or driven into a frenzy. If in 1908 Leslie M. Shaw should be a candi date there is no fear but that Iowa would be for him heart and soul, and that Walter I. Smith would be found in the van of his supporters. Enough of an incident that has been magnified a thousand diameters—notjby Mr. Shaw's friends, but by his enemies. At present the republicans should be too busy electing a president in 1904, to bother about the candidate four years hence. Some years of republican prosperity may be more prosperous than others, but any of them are better than the best democratic years of adversity. To republican years is applicable the fa mous saying of the Kentucky Colonel, regarding his favorite beverage— "ItB all good, though some may be better than others." After all, there was much excuse for the little boy in the Sunday school, who, when asked by the teacher, why he thought it was there were seven •'lean" years in Egypt, said he did not Know—unless it was because it was a Democratic administration. •'Such a leader as Parker might be.'' There is d? pathos in these words of the BulletinXhat is touching. The saddest words tongue lor pen are indeed these, he might have been. We agree with the Bulletin that it is a pity that Parker is not a leader. He might have been a man instead of a mouse. He might have been something more than the valet of David B. Hill and August Belmont—but he is not. What induce ment is there for any stalwart Ameri can to vote for such a man—a man over whom even his own partisan press be moan and bewail? What shall we think of a man, who, when we talk of trusts, calmly refers us toBlackstene: who ac knowledges that he voted twice for free silver though believing it to be wrong who would take the pensions from the old soldiers—but recommend that they be given back. Yes. Parker might have been a lead er, but in spite of all temptations to belong to other nations, he remained— a jelly-fish. That honest men are not the only ones who figure is well illustrated by the last issue of the Bulletin. That paper gives some figures as to business failures this year and last. It finds that there ,were 2099 insolyencies in manufacturing lines with liabilities of 38 millions while the year before there were 2005 such failures, but ninety-four less, with liabilities of 43 millions—or five millions more. The showing is good for present prosperity even as the Bulletin presents its figures. Every sane, honest or fair man must know, however, that true comparison is not based Jupon aggregates but upon per centages. How many failures are there compar ed to the number of firms engaged in business? How do the aggregate lia bilities compare with aggregate capital or volume of business. On this fair basis the year just past will compare favorably with the year before in every particular. By she way, why does not the Bulle tin make a comparison of the figures between gthe last republican and the last democratic administration? That would be something worth while. The many who were pleased and edi fied by the masterful address delivered here last Tuesday by Judge Ownby will be surprised and pained to read the following extract from the bulletin's account of the meeting: "The man from Texas was a clever speaker in some ways, but he scattered like an old, smooth bore and rambled like a maniac. He started all sorts of arguments, but never finished any thing but his funny stories. He gesterud like a windmill after a night of high balls and almost sobbed as he tried to compliment the dear women after his speech was finished." The above was probably intended to be witty it succeeds only in being coarse. A Denison audience is a crit ical one and we have heard .nothing bnt commendation of Judge Ownby's speech until,the Bulletin opened up its fish-mongery. Why in the name of de cency cannot that paper restrain its partisanship long enough to accord re spectable treatment to the distinguish ed men who come among us, no matter on which side they speak. Hon. S. A. Nelson of Humbolt county delivered a splendid address at Buck Grove on Monday night. The school honse was filled and all enjoyed the remarks of the talented young orator. Hon. O. H. Olson also address ed the meeting briefly but effectively. Mr. Nelson will spend the week cam paigning in Crawford speaking at Kiron to-night, Willow Center Wed nesday, Ricketts Thursday.

Cairoll, Auditor of State will speak at West Side on Wednesday Oct. 19 and at Dow City on Thursday Oct 20th. Mr. Carroll is one of the strong men of Iowa, an able speaker, and it is hoped that he will be greeted by large audiences at both places. Democratic leaders had a conference in Denison this week. It was felt that "something must be did," and so Maurice O'Connor and S. V. O'Hare are to be called on to enlighten the Germans of the .county as to their duty in the present campaign. An extra consignment of camgaign cigars was ordered to eke out the scant supply of oratory. Money was wrung from the faithful and the meeting adjourned with great enthusiasm? REPUBLICAN MEETINGS.
