'VINDICATE THE GOVERNOR And Vote To Continue Lower and Equal Taxation and Honest Government. The Bepublican voters of Harrison county and all other citizens -who enjoy the beneficial effects of Bepublican national policies do not want to forget next Tuesday that national issues are involved in the election this year. They do not want to overlook the fact that congressmen are to be elected and that the political complexion of the next House of Representatives depends on the election next Tuesday. Also in this connection so far as West Virginia is concerned an United States senator is to be chosen this year- The man to be chosen will be determined by the vote next Tuesday. A Democratic Congress would not continue Republican policies., which are progressive and efficient Pin cscaoiisning spienain uusiner-s conditions and which are responsi- j hie for this greatest of alL eras in j commercial and industrial development. A Republican Congress will x continue the present most .gratify- J1 lag and wholesome conditions. ( President Roosevelt takes an im- j 7>ortant position in the approaching .J election, as the future of his great ), work for the people of the nation depends solely on the results of the jj -election. This greatest of all t] Americans, a President who has ac( oomplished more already than most 0 Presidents did in their entire tenure, p is involved in the present election. ., He has brought about great reforma- ? lions in the government. He is chonest, he is clean, he is able, he is the people's President. The public in general are familiar tl -with the great reforms he has insti- n tuted. They know about the splen- tl did work of the last session of Con- si gress. They know the grand 1 achievements of that Congress. 0 'Ptie "Rlkina rehate law. tdp rate I d regulations measure, the pure food tl Jaw, the employers' liability law, the p anti-pass law and a number of other R wholesome laws are all Republican measures and are all in the interest s< -of the common people. J In every crisis which has present- tl i'd itself during the half century of t< t its existence the Republican party n has risen promptly and grandly to p the -demands of the occasion. Now J that radicalism and socialism in a various slinpes arc making a power- ol ful appeal for popular support, a i resume of the Republican party"- jt achievements in protecting vested w interests of all sorts against dein 1gogic assaults is timely. J When the greenback inflationists j t< M ft ' A I B, Brown Sto OLD REPUBLIC/ ANDEQUAl : if a third of a century ago demand ;d that all government and privati lebts be paid in depreciated cur ency, except in the cases in whici ipecie was expressly named in tl%< contract, the Bepublican party, bj in act passed against the solid op >osition of the Democracy, and sign id by President Grant on Jan. 14 1875, brought all the country's cur ency up to the gold line. And th< rartv has held the currency up t< hat level ever since, despite the as saulta which have been made bj adicalism in various guises, sup >ortcd by the Democratic party. Th< esumption act of 1875, by warding iff greenback inflation, saved bilions of dollars to the property anc usiness interests of the country. Populism in 1890-92, by its relewal of the war in favor of unlimred uationul currency and its dcnand for the issue of notes against he deposit of agricultural products ittempted to resuscitate the greenlac-kism of two decades earlier, plus hp addition of a few new fads and ollies. The Bepublican party ulimately overthrew populism." The war against property, busiiess, nnd financial sanity was renewed in another form in 1S9G, rhen the Chicago convention, in rulj\ with its fifty-cent silver-doi;ir propaganda. assailed the Bepub ican demand at tnc or. ijouis couontioii in June for a gold dollar rorth 100 cents. Again tlie Repubicun party was triumphant. By lie .Republican victory at the polls n 189(1. by the Republican goldtnnrlard act of March 14, 1900, and y the Republican triumph in the lection in November of that year, lie 100-ccnt dollar was written in lie statutes so firinlv and so decisrely that Alton B. Parker, the Demeruric candidate in 1904, declared tat Republican legislation had roteeted business and property gainst further danger from the urrency dilntionists. Radicalism took a peculiarly menring shape in the attacks made on be property-owners and the busiess interests of the greenbackors, *e populists, and the silverite. The access of the silverite crusade of 89G would have cut the $100,000,00,000 of property of the country own to $50,000,000,000. (From lis policy of wholesale robbery the ooplc were saved by the Republican artv. A now.and particularly dangerous >rt of radicalism presents itself toay in the Government ownership of ic great private and corporate in. rosts which is being urged by eleicnts that are reasonably sure to be owerfuT enough to control the leinocratic party as firmly in 190S the silverite iiftv-cent-dollar lauipiolis swayed that party in s'.k; ami against tins poi v of eoniiscntiou tliu itopublicaiii ill do Iwttlo.

I r the business and property interests I of the United States will once more s have to relv on the Republican party. ; The reforms Mr. Booscvclt in auguratcd and insisted upon can on1 ly continue by tire election of men of his political faith and who will uphold his hands and aid him in the . great work that means so much to . the people. That s why Hon. W. P. t Hubbard should above all other 1 things be elected to Congress. He . wants to help the President and the ; President needs him to help him. I Hubbard will uphold tlie hands of the President, if elected. Xow, as to the United States scn. atorship. The election of a Dem. ocratic senator front AVest Virginia , would mean one who would oppose and obstruct the President. Doe. not every Democratic platform in : . the State denounce the President"? , , That means that the Democratic , leaders are opposed to the President ] and that had they the chance they , would send a man to the United States senate who would be pledged to fight the President and obstruct ] the wholesome legislation insisted . upon by tlie President. But the election of a Republican to the United States senate means just the onnncitp. Tfo will hpln the Presi dent and that is exnctlv what the President wants. - Indeed, Preside Roosevelt has put it up to the people themselves to say whether these great reforms in their interest shall be and continue. Harrison county voters can come to the President's aid and it is lmt right they should come to it. You ask how. We will tell you. By voting for Ashburn, Hart and Riblett, who, if elected, will vote to send a Republican to the T'nited States senate to help the President. That Republican will uphold the hands of the President. Nor is that all Harrison county voters can do in bringing about and upholding great reforms that are accomplishing splendid results for the people. When they vote for Ashburn, nart and Riblett, thev cast their votes for upholding and vindicating Governor Wm. M. O. Dawson, the great father and champion of tax reform, which lias lowered the taxes of the people so materially and placed the burden to a great extent on the corporations, which had escaped a just share of the burden. Ashburn, Hart and Riblett nre firm believers in the new tax laws. Their opponents are not. Elect their opponents, and the new tux laws will be repealed and the burden placed back on the voters of Hnrrison and nil other counties. " Governor Dawson needs and desires c the services of Ashburn, Hnrt nnJ v Ulinv b. Asliburn, Hart and Hiblett will n uphold the hands of Governor Dawson in his courageous fight for the i a people. ' We now come to B. Brown Stout, " nominee for county commissioner. ? Mr. Stout believes in applying the . new tax lows as they are intended !' to be applied, namely, in behalf of ' the people. They are designed to . bring about lower and equal tnxa- 5! tion. He knows that and he be- ' lieves in it. Even he though his , office is not closely connected with " that of the governor can and will 81 uphold the hands of the governor in this splendid tax reform movement, tl A vote for Mr. Stout means a vote h for the now tax laws and an endorse- bi meat of Governor Dawson's great 81 _ . m L* nnd masterly worK as governor 01 a ? great state. A vote against Mr. o; Stout is a vote of repudiation of the w principle of lower and e<]ual taxa- el lion. P Stout will apply the now tax laws P in the interest of the people of Harrison county. He will uphold the ti hands of the Governor. ' tt And down at the bottom of the ai ticket is the name of Cyma E.

SHA HARfflER H/ VVIIH IIt Regarding Sale of City Horses and Decides They Shall Not Be Sold. FRANCHISE IS AMENDED City Council Holds Meeting and Attends to Municipal Affairs. Secret Session Held. Mayor Harmer vindicated the Telegram in. its stand on the proposal to sell the city's fine tCam of horses used on street work, when lie decided a tie vote of the city council in executive session, in favor of keeping the team, Friday night. The matter was thrashed out thorj oughly in the secret session and there was some lively talk on what to do and what not to do, led principally by Mr. McAndrew. Besides deciding the important horse question council reconsidered and repassed the telegraph .line franchise ordinance for the Eureka Pipe Lino Company, reducing the annual tax on poles from $1.00 to 50 cents each, and .attended to a lot of miscellaneous business of tlie city. All the members wen: present excepting Messrs. Anderson and Smith. Attorney T>. G. Altizer and Tames Downing, in behalf of the Eureka Pipe line Company, to which a fifty year franchise ordinance permitting the construction and operation of a telegraph line from Traders allcv to the plant of from Traders aliey to the plant the company is creoteinp east of tho city was granted at the last regular meeting of the council, appeared l>efore the body and said that the measure was not acceptable to tho company. They said the line was to be for private use and though it would be a common carrier they would not seek public business. It was suggested that a reduction of the annual tax of $1.00 a pole would make tho franchise acceptable. Mr. Wood moved to reconsider the ordinance and the motion carried. Mr. Hess moved to retlnce the tax to 25 cents a pole, but Mr. McAndrew offered an amendment fixing the rate at 50 cents. The amendment was carried. Mr. Wood then offered an amendment providing froc use of the poles by the city for police and fire alarms which was carried. Vote was then taken on the ordinauce as amended and it was pussed unanimously. The finance committe reported a number of bills the most of which were allowed. The ones ordered r>aid are published elsewhere in this paper.

When Mr. Hess movedjto authorize the committee to dispose ; of the team and harness at a price' m not leas than $560, Mr. McAndrev ??? said he thought more money could .'*3 bo derived from the sale of fee "i|i animals and that as lie had a lot of important things to tell about team and the tiro department team ?-f? as well council ought to go into . j executive session at the conclusion c^gj of the meeting and consider the proposition in secret. His motion ' --ftji to this end was carried. A. petition to change the name of Cain street to Elk street, signed by ~ ' property owners of that street, was James W.
