Probably never in th« history or this country have the people given so much attention to securing men of ability, men who have done things, uieu who have records of achieve ments. to couscript them for public places as today, in this move to fur nish the nation with the brains, the ability and the integrity of a great country, that when this war is over we will be bigger, richer, greater and übove all a country where the govern ment is popular with the people, Colo rado is not behind other states. Among those who, by reason of their accomplishments in business and professional affairs and In service rendered state and country, the peo ple wish for public service uo man is more pioinineut than Char las W Wa terman of Uenver Charley Wateriuau —every one calls him Charley for be is a hale fellow well met and In the language of the street ’a good scout" —Is regarded by all who know him even by repulatiou as one of the ablest men in the West, lie is tiie man wno fought the fight of tbs people of Denver against the Wa ter Coin puny and wou that fig .1 so that Denver now owns ita own water plant.

His father and mother were both of rugged New Eng land stock and with little wordily pus sessions While they w'ere able to feed and clothe their children, they were not able to aid them materially In securing education, so that Charley Waterman was forced to earn all ex pense* attached to bis different schools Upon coming to Denver he was s stranger Some of the first year he was employed at u small salary in the city attorney's office, but in April. ! 1891. liecame an employ* of the firm of Walcott A Valle, who soon realised bla worth and In 1902 he became a member of the firm of Walcott.

In the Senate. Charley Waterman has the ability, the knowledge of public af fairs of which he has always been a student, the capacity and energy with which are coupled oratorical attain inents. that will at once place him at the very top among the United States Senators and so reflect glory and credit and bring substantial returns to Colorado Adv Colorado’s Copperhead Roll. 1 The National Security league, a nonpartisan organization of citizens to insist upon a military decision ami to see that the American dead do not di< in vain, has published a chart giving the votes in the house of representa tives on the eight principal prepared ness and war measures considered by ,f the sixty-fourth and sixty-fifth con -0 gresscs. This chart ought to Ik* very >f much in demand from now until the i, November election. A candidate for »- re-election cun be judged best from c his votes given during the critical r . weeks when lasting history was being # made. If he failed then, he will fail t now ; if he had his ear to the ground to listen to the pacifist-pro-Clerman sentiment in his district or state, he * will do so again when the acid test is r applied as the* allies gain further on I " the field and the sinister movement spreads for an early, mediated peace t i’ll is chart is broader than the White I House Index, as it include.-, the whole 3 country, not a section of it. The eight record votes are: Tli 4 McD more resolution of March, 7, 111lti. . burring American citizens of their rights to travel on the high st as, t German sop. The Kuhn amendment f to the Hay army bid of Mureh 2.", 1916, to bring the army up to the r« - 1 »|ue.-.t of the general stair a measure 'of preparedness. The Hrandogee 1 amendment to the same measure doubling the size of the then stand f ing army. A new section to the army ■ bill providing for a volunteer reserve t army wholly unde r federal control. A motion to increase the navy appropria tion. The Cooper amendment to pro i hibit American ships from carrying 1 arms or ammunition in their cargoes. 1 The declaration of a state of war will. 1 Germany. April 5, 1917. The Kahn amendment to the conscription act, April Si, 1917, providing for raising by conscription of the necessary army i to give effect to the declaration of I war. The summary of the chart by states ( gives thi* percentage of wrong votes by representatives on all eight meas ures. Rhode Island stands alone with a perfect record. Massachusetts comes cornea next with a percentage of 4.69 wrong votes and Connecticut with a percentage of five. North Dakota heads the bad record list with a per centage of 79.16 wrong votes. Colo rado is a close second with a petrent - age of 78.12. A total score of wrong votes is giv - eii to the following: Hilliard of Colo- | rado. Keating of Colorado, Church of i California. London of New York, Me- ' l/cmore of Texas, Nelson of Wiscon sin, Van Dyke of Minnesota. Forty-seven members of the house are recorded as having voted on all eight tests. Colorado has not one -o its credit. What arc the Colorado voters going 1 to do about that record? Do they wish their states to be branded a copperhead, of questionable loyalty and more interested in a hurried pi ace , II hun a just and lasting peace? The ' record as it stands is not good for th«- i state; and. until we are proven wrong | by the November vote, wc will insist ( that the National Security league’- • jehact is far from representing the real ! 'sentiment of Colorado’s citizens. -| Denver News. WELL PROVED.
