FYour Vote At Next Tues- .
'VINDICATE THE GOVERNOR
And Vote To Continue Lower and
Equal Taxation and Honest
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

of the United States will once more

; 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
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. "

the services of Ashburn, Hnrt nnJ v

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
Attorney T>. G. Altizer and

Eureka Pipe line Company, to

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.
