PARKER THAT DEMOCRATS EVER HAD. SUCH IS THE PREDICTION Of the Hon. William D, Poulke Who Is at Home to-Vote.-vi -r.. The Hon; William Dudley Foulke has returned' from his speaking tour through the central part of the state. Mr. Foulke is enthusiastic over the prospects of Indiana giving a big Republican plurality and pre dicts dhat Alton P. Parker will be one of the worst beaten candidates that has ever headed a Democratic ticket. Mr. Foulke is "telling "one' on himself which happened while he was on his speaking -tour. The story is best told in his own words. "I was in Mooresville, Ind., and made a speech in the town hall to a large crowd. After the meeting a citizen told me that the week previ ous a Democratic speaker had been sent to Mooresville to make an ad dress but no one put in an appear ance in the hall, so in desperation he sought out a dry goods box, placed it on a street corner and in a short time had a fair sized crowd gathered about, him. He had just gotten un der good headway when some wag shouted 'fire' and our Democratic friend was left to address the 'chilly atmosphere. ' This said I, 'is a splendid joke on the wicked' Demo cratic speaker' and laughed every time I thought of it. The next night I was in Red Key and the stand I spoke from was situated near the llig Four railroad tracks. The night was cold and disagreeable and be tween freight trains passing every five minutes, tin horns blowing and people yelling 'hurrah for Teddy' as they passed by on floats. I had to scream to make, myself heard. I had just finished my introduction when there came a 'clang, clang, clang,' of the fire bells and in the opposite end of the town I saw flames shoot ing up to the skies. . A man dashed into ;the crowd and informed a wom an, Avho was standing directly in front of me, that her home was on fire.. Then the crowd .stampeded to the fire and I was left with an audi ence of about five. 1 remember that one man had a very interested ex pression on his face and I decided to keep on talking as long as he look ed that way. Well I did. and in about avhalf hour's time my crowd came back to me and heard the con clusion of the address. T can't figure out who the laugh is on, my Demo cratic friend pr myself." . Vote early. Vote for Roosevelt. VOTE BUYING CONTINUED NAMES OF MEN WHO TRIED TO BUY COLORED VOTERS '-"-' . FURNISHED THE PALLADIUM Also the Names of the Men Who Were Offered Money for Their Votes. - The Palladium has been reliably informed that the vote buying busi ness was continued by two well known Democrats yesterday and last night, and that in an instance or two they were successful, and in other cases they Avere turned coldly down. One of these Democrats ap proached a certain colored man whose name we have before us and offered him $15 to leave town. The man refused the offer and told the Democrat that no amount of money would buy his right to cast a ballot to suit himself. Another colored fellow was approached by the Democrat in question and offered $10. This was accepted, and the fel low has left town. This last col ored man spends most of his time in jail. It looks very much like the bung Hew out of Taggart 's barrel somewhere in this vicinity. And this is America, the land of the free and tho4icmc-ro . the naxexr.&cJZ Wave of Crime. . A wave of crime seems to be ! sweeping over Columbus, Ohio. A number of robberies in all forms have occurred in the last few days and on Sunday evening eighteen res idences in the principal part of the city were entered and robbed be tween midnight and morning. The police have been powerless to stop the wave of crime and the citizens are up in arms in an effort to stop it. A REMINDER As a Waman Today is the proudest day in al I one day when each man is his recognize the fact that they are the real rulers of the nation, that theirs is indeed a government t( of the people, for the people and by the people." But how about the women? Must they stand idly by and contribute nothing because they are denied the elective franchise; do nothing but fret and worry at the unjustnes.s of tax- atioii without representation; or do nothing but lend a deaf ear to the entire subject '?' No, for their interests are too closely bound up with those of their fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. Woman always has been the, power behind the throne and will still be, if she but exert her influence. Today she can at least en- courage the voters of her own family as well as those of her neigh- bors and friends by reminding them of their privilege and duty. j She can put the men folks of by serving them with some favorite dish for dinner or supper.' If the son or brother be a first voter she can make the day a memorable one by not only giving him something good to eat, but by presenting him with some souvenir of the day, which he may keep-and prize a lifetime and dying leave it to his eldest son and so on for generations an heirloom hat will be cherished long after the hand that gave it has crumbled to dust. It's true that Tuesday is ironing day in many families, hut jt v- will pay the housewife to sprinkle the clothes a little more, than is her wont and lay them aside until tomorrow and go insead to the stores and select a keepsake. She will be happy and so will her boy and the day will be a mner-io-be-forotten one. A SISTER.
