MANVILLE REPUBLICAN RALLIES There will be pablic meetings of the voters for the purpose of dis cussing the issues of the cam paign, at the following places: Lam u Optra House, Saturday, Nov. 2 Carlton School House, Monday, Nov. 4 The republican candidates and others will address the meetings. Good music will be a feature of the occasions. Everybody Is Invited to Attend. "The taxes in this county (levied by a Democratic Board of Commissioners) have become burdensome to the farmers.”-J. F. Men denhall’s Paradox speech. There is still one more opportnni ty to register, on next Monday. Re member though that yon hare to take two witnesses with you on that day. There are many reasons why the democrats are going to scratch their ticket this year, but the three most potent ones are Jndge Nowels, E. C. and Ezra. The Sparks keeps very silent about the north eiders whom the democrats have ever elected to office, bnt still loudly protest it is the only fnend of that section. If yon vote the republican ticket you won’t be ashamed if people do tind out about it. The Sparks thinks that if you vote the democratic ticket yon will need to hide the fact. The loving manner in which Broth er Lawless now quotes Brother Fry barger is truly affecting. *Tis well for brothers to live together in muti ny, even if they do occasionally break loose in pleasantries that threaten libel snits. It is evident from the frequency with which the editor of the Sparks advises the women and others that they can vote the democratic ticket because the ballot is secret, that he believes anyone would be ashamed to be caught voting it. The Register was in error last week in stating the £anse of the post ponement of the democratic meeting at Carlton. It was caused by the sickness of Mrs. Williams and the republican meeting was postponed on Monday night owing to her death. The misinformation came to ns from what we supposed was a reliable source, bnt was not from Mr. Luck as some orators at democratic meet ings of the past week have been try ing to make it appear. lost cause catches at straws and the fact that one little five line squib has been the entire stock in trade of the democra tic speakers for a whole week shows the hopelessness of their cause. "I don’t think that either a Pinkerton or Scotland Yard detective could find it.”—J. F. Mendenhall referring to the money expended by the democrats on roads. Some of our opponents seem to be greatly exercised about what they call the outrageous treatment of Miss Exline by the republicans. Had they bestowed some of this belated friendship during the democratic convention it would have been much more acceptable to her, and would have sounded more sincere. Coming at the present time we have no donbt Miss Exline will size it up at just what it is worth. We have always been modest about referring to the Register, but we cannot help calling attention to the fact that last week's issue saved the taxpayers about $50,000. There have been a number of democratic meetings since that time and not a single new bridge promised. If we had not promptly called them down it is probable that they would have had the Aikansas river so plastered over with promised bridges that there would have been no right of way left for the Lamar & Great Lakes Elec trie Short Line. The democrats are making a vain attempt to blind the people as to the real purpose of the revenue bill. In spite of the fact that the assessed valuation of the state has been more than doubled the fusion state board has fixed the state tax levy at the same figures as last year. This will force the taxpayers of Prowers coun ty alone to pay $9,000 more money into the state treasury than they did last year. Of course they are trying to make the people believe that this all comes off the railroads, but that will hardly go down for all know that the larger portion of the taxes is assessed to our home people. The policy of a party in local af fairs is represented by its candidate for commissioner, and in connection with the loose and rambling manner in which the democratic candidate for that office is making promisee of every description is the clear cut and explicit statement of the republican candidate, W. F. McPherson, made to his own people at the Holly meet ing and afterwards repeated at var ious other meetings. He told the people that if he is elected he will during his term of office oppose the building of a bridge at Holly or any other place on the river until the bridges already built are paid for. Nothing could show more plainly the determination of Mr. McPherson to give the people of the county the economical and conservative admin istration which the republican plat form promised. Last week’s issue of the Register seems to have been unpleasant read ing for the democratic candidates. At any rate it was the only text for the speeches delivered at the school houses on the north side the past week, and the vehemence with which they all jumped on the paper and its editor shows plainly how hard the shoe pinches them. Not being satis fied with their own efforts they called in local celebrities to assist them in the wholesale denunciation. It is always the people, who have the most in their past life to hide, that are the most violent in the matter of person al abuse, and these particular parties are spotted by the voters and will be treated accordingly. There has been no word of personal abuse of any democratic candidate in the Regis | ter. We have critisized some of 1 their statements and actions, but : without anything even bordering on : abuse, and we expect to maintain this attitude to the end, and not stoop to respond to their vile sluis. DEMOCRATIC EXTRAVAGANCE. | Severely Condom mod by the Party’s Candidate for Commissioner. Mr. Mendenhall in his speech at the Paradox school honse arraigned his own party in the following ex traordinary manner: “I have gone into this contest for j the purpose of reducing taxation and bettering the public service. The commissioner is an important ‘ office because the commissioner lev "The taxes in this county (levied by a Democratic Board of Commissioners) have become burdensome to the farmers."-). F. Men denhall’s Paradox speech. ies your taxes and says how much they are to be. He also pannes np on your assessment, bnt what is more he has charge of the distribu tion of the money. The taxes in this county have become burdensome to the farmers. Our road work alone would amount to from ten to eleven thousand dollars I do not think that there is a man in this county could point to where it has gone. I have been over this county a great deal and I can not detect it. I would like to kuow what became of it. I don't think that either a Pinkerton or a Scotland Yard detective could find it.” It is only necessary for the voters to remember that during seven of the past eight years we have had a democratic majority on the board of oonnty commissioners to see the full foice of the sweeping denunciation of his own party associates by Mr. Mendenhall. If taxes are burden some remember that the present re publican board has had noopportun ity to make a levy yet, and all tLe levies and the expenditures, which have caused those levies, have been made by the democratic party. That party had complete charge of the county government for seven years and if there was waste and extrava gance they were entirele responsible. The levy of taxes which our citizens are paying now was made by the democratic board of commissioners last fall and was what they deemed necessary for the carrying on of the connty government. If it is burden some Mr. Mendenhall's own party has the sole responsibility, and be should have advised the people not to trust his party again. As to the road fund which Mr. Mendenhall especially mentions, he has the figures down about correct on his party associates. The demo cratic boards have been levying about ten to eleven thousand dollars, as he says, for road purposes, and for seren years the money was handled entirely by democratic overseers. When the republican board of commissioners took charge last spring they found the usual levy of about SIO,OOO for them, bnt charged np against it was the overdrafts of the former admin istiation amounting iu all to $3500. Even if the taxes were paid in full, which they never are, this would leave a balance of only $6500 for the present administration unless they did as their predecessors and over drew the accounts. The republican board immediately notified its ap pointees for road overseers that they mnst keep within the appropiation, and this has been done to such an extent that each of the road district funds but one is now on the cash basis and that one will be before the year is completed. From this it is easy to see that the present board has spent much less money on the roads than any of its predecessors, and that the extravagance which Mr. Mendenhall claims to have discover ed, must be charged to his own par ty. The republican board is certain ly to be commended for insisting on keeping expenditures down to a point that will pnt the road funds on a cash basis. We would suggest to Mr. Mendenhall that instead of em ploying Pinkertons he might refer the matter to those stalwart democratic citizens, Messrs. Ford. Fnsbie. Bald win, Burke and Davidson. Thev have handled a large portion of the road fond in this section of the conn ty, and they certainly have a large number of friends here who are loath to believe the charges which their candidate for commissioner has made against them. The Register believes in fair play and will say for them that the money was at least as well spent as it would be in building bridges promiscuously. “I don’t think that either a Pinkerton or Scotland Yard detective could find it.”—J. F. Mendenhall referring to the money expended by the Democrats on the roads. NOTICE To the Voters of Prowers County. I mu a candidate on the Peoples’ Party ticket for re election to the office of County Superintendent of Schools. During the past two years, while serving the people in that office, I have always endeavored to treat everyone with fairness and jus tice. If any have been offended it is my misfortune rather than my fault, for I had to do what was right, no matter what the consequences. The State Superintendent would tell you that she has never fonnd a mis take in any of my reports, and that is a very good record. If the voters of this connty can conscientiously support me at the polls in Novem ber I shall be very grateful and thankful for any, and all, votes I may receive, and if elected I promise to serve all the people well, show ing partiality and favoritism to none.

They also got phy sicians to name chronic, incurable cases, and administered it with the physicians for judges. Up to Aug. 25, eighty-seven per cent of the test cases were either well or progressing favorably. There being but thirteen per cent of failures, the parties were satisfied and closed the transaction.
