The Last Gall To Arms
) 0
Just a Tew questions before closing the campaign:
Shall wo, at tho height of this country's prosperity, begin experi
menting with theories of government and trade for that which has always
proved disastrous?
Shall wo permit a party to carry this county and stato that presents
no Issuo to the people on which It may grow and flourish, and perform tho
people's work, other than the personal Joy and satisfaction It will bring
,to Dr. Wilson ond his wife, and Mr. Bryan and his wife, coupled with tho
battlo cry, "Tho Republicans are divided boys, and now is our chance?"
Shall wo permit n party to triumph In Intelligent Cache County that
has not one meritorious Issue, that has not performed one meritorious act
lm tho past, and whose past Is remembered only In regret?
Shall we permit Dr. Wilson, the greatest living oxamplo of expedi
ency In America today to carry this great county of ours?
Wilson, who ranked forty-first In a class of forty-two, barely escap
ing honor failure.
Wilson, tho sponsor of British Government In 1S79.
Wilson, tho tenor soloist of tho same year.
Wilson, tho lawyer In 1S82.
Wilson, tho failure at law eighteen months later.
WilBon, tho bar to Princeton's progress In 1910, even so much so
that ho had to resign so that Princeton might become the legatee of a
$3,000,000 estate.
Wilson tho applicant for a "retired collogo professor's" pension after
cwenty-flvo ytars of school teaching.
Wilson, who. was refused a "Carneglo" pension.
Wilson, who preached and taught for twenty years and thought and
Investigated and apologized afterwards, ns witnessed by his own words:
"For twenty years I preached to the students of Princeton that tho refer
endum and recall wcro bosh. I have slnco Investigate and I want to ap
ologize to those students."
Wilson, who wns false to his best friend, Colonel Harvey.
Wilson, whom Colonel Henry Watterson, had hoped would prove n
second Tllden, but had turned out to bo "merely a schoolmaster."
Wilson, of whom Colonel Henry Watterson, the Democrat of all
Democrats of tho south, prayed' that God would deliver tho American peo
ple from "such a leador and such leadership."
Wilson, whq was falso to his student, J. W. Park, and said: " I did
not at first recollect Park at all, but I liavo looked him up in tho recorda
of tho university and recall him now very clearly. I reraombor having
been obliged to reject a certain work which he submitted for a degree be
cause of tho utter confusion of thought.
It showed that ho could neither think nor comprehend. His mind
was ono of the sort that gets nothing correctly.
I should not llko to bellovo tho man deliberately false. It Is only, I
daro say, another Instance of Jils entlro Inability, cither to understand or
interpret anything."
Wilson, who In 1897 said of Mr. Park over his own signature to the
President of tho Kansas Stato Agricultural College: "My Dear Sir: I un
derstand that Mr. Joseph W. Park Is a candidate for a position in your
"" fjfaculty and I take pleasure In testifying to hlsvablllty and) promlso ns a
r-' vRcholar. He won distinction hero as a student, anif'has held ourijTellow
ship In social science during tho present year. I think him a 'man of un-
I usual gifts and cordially commend hint to your favorablo notlco.
Very sincerely yours, WOODROW WILSON."
That ought to bo enough to convince anyone of tho sincerity of the
Democratic candidate for President. Expediency seems to be his long suit.
Wilson, who thus shows his expeditious mind In denying tho follow
ing which Park attributed to him In an address at Princeton: "I do not be
lieve In Democracy tho rule of tho many. I bellovo In aristocracy tho
rule of tho few; but I wish an aristocracy of brains not of wealth.
I disapprove of tho Chautauqua Idea, tho attempt to givo a smatter
ing of culture to everybody, which results In securing conceit without
I am opposed to tho higher education for the common people; somo
body must do the dirty work of the world; why shouldn't tho children of
this 'working classes be brought up to do the work their parents are ndw
Wilson, the historian who treats tho last Democratic administration
on pages 235 and 236 of his history' as follows: "A great poverty and de
pression had come upon the western mining regions and upon tho agricul
tural region of tho west and south. Prices had fallen . . Men of the
poorer sort wero idle everywhere, and filled with a sort of despair. All of
the larger cities and manufacturing towns seemed teemed with unemployed
worklngmen, who were with the utmost difficulty kept from starving by
the systematic efforts of organized charity."
Prof. Wilson devotes several pages to Coxoy's Army and other evi
dences of idleness and hard times and also describes tho difficulty which
President Cleveland experienced in maintaining tho treasury reserve. No
less than $87,000,000 In gold, says Dr. Wilson, "had to bo shipped over sea
to tho country's creditors In a single twelvemonth, 1893," and bonds had
to bo sold to secure gold, thus Increasing tho public debt. Then Dr. Wil
son, writing as an historian and not thinking of ever being a candidate
wrote tho following truthful and historic sentence (Pago 263 of Vol 5):
"Not until tho year 1897, when tho Republican administration came
In did tho crisis seem to bo past"
Wilson, whom Free Trade England Is hoping will bo President of
tho United States.
Shall wo pormtt such a man, nnd tho representative of such n party
to bo tho next president of tho United States?
f This Is tho last call to arms, and In response thereof Is it tho solemn
duty of every Republican to voto against such a man nnd such a party.
It is tho solemn duty of every Republican to tako his Democratic
brother, who places self preservation nbovo party loyalty, to tho polls with
him and there oncourago him to cast his ballot against a party with such
shallow Issues, a party that has more concorn for tho millions across the
w-ater than tho tolling laborers of Amerlc..
It Is tho duty of the followers of tho Third party, who havo no use
for tho Democracy, nnd who aro sick of Democratic twaddlo Just as n
moans to get office, to register their protest against such a party and such
a leader.
It is tho duty of all who liuvo over been truo Republicans at heart
") fjfj throw off all sontlmont and personal deslro, and go out for tho election
" St tho stato and county ticket.
If such a party, and such a leadership should triumph today It will
not bo bocauso thoro aro moro Democrats than Republicans. It will be
bocauso a Third party makes It posslblo for a minority to rulo.
Tho Republican party today makes Its last call to arms In this cam
paign. Tho party Is bigger than any man, or sot of men. It has done
much for you Mr. Voter. It is now up to you to place It again In power

Aggies on tho local field, Saturday,

scoro of G3 to 0. Tho visitors were
helpless before tho snappy attack of
tho Aggies and at no time did they

team got busy In tho last two peri
ods and It was noxt to Impossible for
Wyoming to stop tho onward advance.
It was no trouble for the Aggies to
make gains throughout tho gamo, it
was simply a question of how much
and which play would not the great

tho speaker declared. "It is Impos

On Saturday afternoon tho annual
meeting of tho Hoard of Trustees of
tho B. Y. College was hold at yhlch
roports wero board from President
James H. Linford and Secretary E.
J. Norton. Tho board ro-elocted all
tho former officers, as follows:
Joseph F. Smith, president of the
board; C. W. Nlbley, vlco president
James H. Linford, president of tho
faculty; E. J. Norton, secretary and
troasuror; Joseph Howell, O. H.
Hart, and Alma Morrill, sxecutlvo
committee with Serge F, Dalllf as
sociated. The usual board ' banquet
was tendered hrtho domestic arts
department of the college'. ' ,
A great deal of opposition has do- .
vcloped on somo or tho constitution- 1 U
al amendments moro especially tho ' T1 '
amendment to section nrtlclo 13. i
On this proposed amendment Hon. i
W. YV. Ulter says: J. H
I am opposed to tho Joint resolu- '
Hon proposing an amendment to L
section 3, article 13, of tho stato . ,
constitution, which provides that
property shall bo assessed at its H
money valuol Evcryono of expert- ' 1
enco knows that this Is an Impos- ' (
imcy allies on property , H
aro merely such values ns It would
bell for, nnd that can only bo as- H
ccrtnlncd as a result of a sale. Tho H
adoption of this amendment would H
cniiBo a largo amount of protest bo- I
foro boards of equalization by prop- I f H
erty owners claiming that their I
property is not worth what It Is as- ,
seised at, which In many Instances
would doubtless bo true, becauso
this is loft to tho Judgment of tho ', '
nsscssor, which may or may not bo '
good. Whoro property Is assessed H
at sny CO or CO per cent of its valu- 1 H
ntlon, the owner raroly ovor makes .-,!''
n protest, contenting himself with
tho bcllof that ho is not over tnxed.
In largo cities llko Now York and ' i'f
Chicago property Is tnxed at about H
half Its ordinary value, with tho '
result thoro Is very llttlo clamor (
for reduction of assessments; but .
Just imagine what the condition
would bo If tho property In theso 1
largo cities was taxed at a cash i'l
value, set by (ho assessor. It would f
simply bo Imposslblo for tho board l
of equalization to handle tho qucs- '
tton equitably.
Anothor reason for my opinion j H
Is Uint whllo property- assessed at ' H
Its full valuo will permit a much ''H
lower rnto of taxation, yot It' ere- ' !
atea a temptation for tho officers of, ' vl
tho law to increase, tho rates on the 't
grounds that existing fates are very li'll
low. Tho weight of taxation Is al- P'l
