VOTERS ASKED TO COMPARE REC ORDS OF TWO MEN AND CAST VOTES FOR MAN WITH THE BEST ONE. Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 27. The "deadly parallel" Is resorted to In the current issue of the American Issue, official organ of the Anti-Saloon Lea gue, in an appeal to the voters of In diana in behalf of James E. Watson, Republican nominee tor governor. The appeal seta out in detail Mr. Watson's congressional record on tem perance questions and gives, side by side, the records of Mr. Watson and his Democratic opponent, Thomas R Marshall, during the course of the present campaign. The voters are urg ed to consider, the deeds of the two nominees and cast their votes with, the man who stands for the better prin ciples. The publication says of Mr. Watson: "He never failed- to vote right on the temperance question." The appeal, in full, follows: We publish herewith, as far as can be obtained, the records of the two leading candidates in the race for gov ernor of the state of Indiana. One of these two men is sure to e elected Wo earnestly plead that our Indiana temperance forces be united in a prac tical effort to keep Indiana abreast of the times in the great temperance con flict now stirring the nation. We pub lish Mr. Watson's congressional record so far as it relates to the temperance question-, and then the records of both Watson and Marshall during the cam paign for governor. These men have made their own records, and upon them the people can well judge which is the safer to be intrusted to fill the highest office within the gift of the people of Indiana. 1. Of Mr. Watson in congress: ' On Dec. 6, 1900, voted in favor of the bill which removed the beer drink ing canteen from the United States army. On May 27, 1902, voted In favor of bill which removed' saloons from United States immigrant stations. On May 27, 1902 voted in favor of measure which, abolished saloon from United States capltol building. - On Jan. 27, J 003, voted in favor of Hepburn bill (H. R. 15331) which, had it pased the senate, would have broken up the Interstate traffic In Intoxicants in original packages In dry territory Voted In favor of Oklahoma state hood bill with its provision prohibiting liquor traffic in the Indian Territory part and all Indian reservations in Ok lahoma part. See Cong. Record, vol. 40, part 2, p. 1587. On June 12, 1900, as chairman of the committee of the whole, held amend ment in-order to sundry civil bill, which drove the beer saloon out of old soldiers homes throughout the coun try. See Cong. Record part 9, p. 8356. On Feb. 23, 1907, as chairman of committee of the whole, made same ruling, which again shut out saloon from old soldiers homes. On May 0, 1908. held same ruling, which again, excluded saloon from old soldiers' homes throughout the coun try. Has never failed to vote right on temperance question. Watson on Option. In pre-keynote address on June 4, at Spencer, declared in favor of county local option, and said: "If I am elect ed governor on this platform I shall use all honorable means to have this provision enacted into law." He also declared: "The county is a well-defined geographical and political divl- Piles 20 Years sion, of territory. The state recognizes the county and deals with the county as such in their business relations. The laws of the state are, as a rule, applied by means of the machinery furnished by the several counties, eta" In keynote address in Fort Wayne, Aug. 26, declared unequivocally in favor of county local option, and that he would veto a township and ward local option bill, declaring: "If I am elected governor. ... I shall earn estly recommend to th legislature the passage of a county unit local option law. ... If the legislature enacts into law the plan proposed by the Democratic platform, I shall likewise register my veto against such action, and thus endeavor to prevent the final passage of such legislation." Without exception in every cam paign address has declared in favor of county local option, and that he would veto a township and ward bill. He has also declared in favof or retaining our J present remonstrance law. He was not responsible for the call ing of the special session of the legis- f lature, but when the same was cald ! be at once threw his whole influence I in favor of the passage of the county local option law, and it Is safe to say that without his influence it could never have passed. Since Its passage has, in every ad dress, declared he would veto any bill repealing or weakening our county lo cal option law. This he has fearlessly done in the great liquor strongholds of the state. He has nwer hesitated to declare his position, even when urged by his friends to be more cautious. Is opposed by every distiller, brewer, saloon keeper, bartender and every so called "personal liberty" advocate in the state. His triumphant election will be her alded everywhere as a distinct victory for righteousness, and will be such a signal defeat for the brewers as never before known in Indiana. Its moral effect upon the nation will be beyond calculation. Marshall on Option. In first keynote address on June 4, in Richmond, declared that the town ship and ward are the proper units, saying: "When each of the parties recognized the right to license the sale of intoxicants, then manifestly it must be true that a vote upon that question should be reduced to the low est unit of self-government; otherwist the doctrine of local self-government is a farce." (As a matter of fact, every Democratic state in the union has either county local option or state Wide prohibition.) In second keynote address, at about this time in Salem, declared: "The township has always been the unit of government. This is simply an effort to exercise the right of policing the liquor traffic, and as I, myself, believe in the doctrine of local self-government I am in hearty accord with the Demo cratic party upon this question. I hope some time it will be under stood! that I am the candidate of the Democratic party, and nobody else." He repeatedly declared he would not say whether or not he would sign a county option bill, but on different oc casions declared if he did not believe the Democratic platformi correct that he would get off the ticket. On the 9th of Sept., in a Democratic conference, he said: "I freely suggest that no Democratic legislator should vote at the coming special session of the legislature for the proposed' coun ty local option. That question is now before the people as a campaign is sue. Since its passage has repeatedly de clined to say whether or not he would sign a bill repealing or weakening county local option law. Finally, on Oct, 6, In Lafayette, he said: "I have been asked by Governor Hanly if I would sign a certain bill prepared by him repealing the county option law. To this I say 'no,' unless the legisla ture should also re-enact the Moore re monstrance law and give to the people a vote by townships and wards as de clared for in the Democratic plat form." (The Moore remonstrance law is retained in our county local option law). Every distiller, brewer, saloon keep er, bartender and . so-called "personal liberty" advocate is openly and earn estly working for his election, each sa loon being a center of political activity for Marshall. His election .will be everywhere re garded as a great brewery triumph, will be almost certain to mean the repeal of our county local option law and the ascendency of the basest ele ments of our citizenship. 8edRldden From Piles, Massachusetts - Man Is Cured by Wonderful Pyramid Pile Cure.

The Seven Russells. minstrels, at the New Phillips this' week are worthy of the name. They can sing and sing well. The Russells are a family of a father and six exceedingly clever chil dren, and they have their time chuck ed full of good jokes, and some un usually good singing. It is not often that six youngsters can keep together, and as, true as do these. The act is well put on, and well costumed, ana Arrow r'"ii.o mmm num. OLLAR.S They neither shrink, scratch. saw nor strth ucmtw Tors Cwu made a bid for strong approval throughout the week. The Marvin brothers, as astonishers carry off the prize. They have left out the usual acrobatic tricks that the pro fessionals generally show and have their entire time given over to diffi cult and dexterious feats. They feaure a most amazing "teeter dive" that sur pases anything of the sort seen here this year. Phillips and Bergen, "In Mistaken Identity." succeed In showing , some very good character work on the part of Phillips, and some pleasant singing by Miss Bergen. Miss Corah Carner. styles herself commedienne, but her serious recita tion, is by far superior to her comedy, which, in itself is very good. She knows the art of public speaking. Moving pictures and the illustrated song complete the bill. The sword salute of military officers has two meanings. The first position, with the hilt opposite the lips. Is a sur vival of the crusader's action of kissing the cross hilt of his sword in token of faith, and the lowering of the point is a token of friendship, implying that it Is not necessary to be on guard. Brown What's wrong? Tou seem worried. Jackson I am. I wrote two notes one to my broker asking him if he took me for a fool and the other to Miss Golding asking her if she would be mine.
