The real merchant quickly clears his stocks, relying on low prices plus quality to do the work. He will get in money to reinvest in goods for the next season." The above quotation tells the story. New goods for fall will soon arrive. We want to clear our stocks of broken lines. The price reductions are drastic to insure a rapid clearance. And practically every department has many items it wishes to clear immediately, articles you are using now and will use for another two months. These goods you can purchase at such savings as will warrant you in buying a supply and laying it aside until next season if you cannot use it now. Everyone in the store will be on tip-toe and keenly alive to serve cheerfully and promptly. Come early and choose early. m 1 - I I II I 1 Fii A Fine Stock Here The styles are different WALKER-ScKIBBEIiM'S THE QUALITY STORE VISIT THE REMNANT COUNTER The Butler Weekly Times AND THE BATES COUNTY RECORD Printed n Thursday of each week.

M1DDLETON Mingo Township " Forjudge County Court South Dist. W. H. LOWDER CUMMINGS KEYNOTE CALL - Chairman Cummings' call to the militant Democracy of the country will meet with ready response from every red-blooded Democrat. There was- no pussy-footing, evading or double meaning phrases, but a clear cut, positive declaration upon .every public question before the people to day for settlement and a ringing defy to Lodge's keynote address, of a personal fight upon President Wilson and all that his administration has accomplished and stands for. He championed the League of Na tions covenant as the "Monroe Doc trine of the World," and of the peace treaty's defeat by the Senate he said: "No blacker crimes against civiliza tion -have ever soiled the pages of our history." - He characterized the Re publican platform as "reactionary and provincial." "Filled with premeditat ed slanders and vague promises, it will be searched in vain for one construc tive suggestion for rue reformation or the conditions which it ,critizes and deplores." "The oppressed peoples of the earth will look to it in vain. It contains no message of hope for Ire land; no word of mercy for Armenia; and it conceals a sword for Mexico." He declared that the peace time record of the Democratic party from March, 1913, to the outbreak of the world war has to its credit more ef fective, constructive and remedial legislation than the Republican parry had placed-upon' the statute books :n a generation." - In speaking -of-the League of Na tions, he said: ."What nations ttaud outside? Revolutionary Mexico, Bol shevist Russia, unspeakable Turkey and the United States." "Let the true purpose of our party be clearly understood," he said in concluding his address. '"We stand squarely for the same ideals of peace as those for which the war was fought. We supoort without flinch ing the only feasible plan for peace and justice. We will not submit to the repudiation of the peace treaty or to any process by which it is whittled down to the vanishing point We de cline to compromise our principles or pawn our immortal souls for selfish purposes. We do not turn our backs upon the history of the last three years. We seek no avenue of re treat. We insist that the forward course is the only righteous course. "We seek to reestablish the fruits of victory, to reinstate the good faith of our country and to restore it to its rightful place among the nations of the earth. Our cause constitutes a summons to duty. The heart of America stirs again. The ancient faith revives. The immortal part of man speaks for us. The services of the past, the sacrifices of war, the hope of the future, constitute a spir itual force gathering; about our ban ners. We shall release again the checked forces of civilization and America shall take up once more tne leadership of the world." NOW AND THEN Next to the deadly parallel column, is the digging into old files of news papers when a man becomes promi nent enough to' be nominated for president by one of the -great political parties, and especially is that so when the candidate happens to have been a newspaper man and editorial writer. This is what has happened to Warren G. Harding, Republican nom inee. In 101a Senator Harding then, as he docs now, owned the Marion, Ohio, Star. Naturally as an old line Republican he was enthusiastic for Taft, the regular Republican nominee and very bitter against Col. Roose velt. One of his editorials headed "Aaron Burr, His Protype," says: "In seeking a prototype for Col. Rooseyell.among jmbiic men of the country one finds the closest re semblance to Aaron Burr. The same towering ambitions, the same over bearing disposition and ungovernable temper, the same ruthlessness in dis regarding the ties of friendships, gratitude and reverence, the same tendency to bully and browbeat, and finally the same type of egotism and greed for power and the same men tal tendency generally.'' During the whole of that campaign hardly, a day passed but what the Col. was shot full of editorial holes, among the shots being that "Tie (Roosevelt) was utterly without conscience and re gard for truth and the greatest faker of the time." The Star also referred to Col. Roosevelt as a Benedict Arnold and to .Hiram Johnson as "both a faker and a black-guard." These editorials were written by Mr. Harding and would make mighty good reading to Col. Roosevelt's friends, and we have no doubt Sen ator Johnson and his friends would peruse them with much interest and no doubt they would enhance the en thusiasm of those .gentlemen in Hard ing's campaign, An interesting fact in this connec tion is that the copy of the files of the Star for that period has disap peared from the office of the. Tri bune, a business and political rival of the Star. The American army authorities have informed the mayor of Cher bourg, France, that the port ot DoHghmet will be the port of embark ation for the shipment of American dead to the United States, beginning in September. The bodies will be placed in hermetically sealed metal caskets, protected by heavy boxes. The town of Equetxe ville-will be the assembling point from which the bodies will be taken on board home ward bound American steamships. LETTER BY FORMER GOVERN OR PROVES THE BIG SEN- SATION OF "HOUSE CLEANING" AS . SEMBLY ignations of Babler and Cole De manded as Result of Their Con nection With Slush Funds of Candidates. Sedalia. Mo.. Inne 26. The much. advertised Republican "house-cleaning" has been pulled off here as sche duled but Jacob L. Babler, Republi can National Committeeman from -Missouri, and W. L. Cole, Chairman of the Republican State Committee, still retain their posts and show no signs of intent to resign. Sonic of the delegates in attend ance were inspired with honest nv. tives and were seeking only new lead ership while others, according to the gossip around the meeting, want a new regime because they behove- they will fare better in possible fed-oral patronage if Babler and Cole are ousted. Feu- were- nrenareri fur hi thunderbolt hurled from the Wcs: by former Governor Herbert S. Hadley, now living in Colorado, who sent a letter to the convention saying- that slush funds were nothing new in Re publican circles in Missouri that they had been used in the campaigns of 1908, 1912 and 1916. Hadley s revelations were not startling from a news point of view as nearly all Missourians who have followed politics can testify to huge sums of Republican money dumped into the state to carry-elections but they gained added import because of the high position of the man who made them. Hadley's letter was car ried throughout the nation by. the As sociated Press, thereby adding to the shame of Missouri. Hadley bluntly made the assertion that unles Repub licans "clean house" they might as well abandon all hopes for carrying Missouri this falL "This meetinr was railed f t,m purpose of making fight on commer cialized politics and commercial pol iticians," said Col. W. C Pierce of aaaryvine in opening the meeting. "b.verv four veara antne mmlu of our nartv seek in M ' j taw wmj to sell and deliver the Rennhlioana f miasoun as 11 iney were mere chat-1 icis; rour years ago senator Weeks was the victim. You all remember eight years ago when ball-bats took the place of ballots in the Third Dis trict, raising a. stench from San Diego to Boston, all this from these same men. We must purge the party if we are to win in November. Let us fight." Pierce reviewed the history of the Lowden scandal in Missouri as a re sult r kT file 1ircirlntial na nAlAa f ec. manager giving the combine $38,000 for the nnrnosp nf "inflnen.-incr" dele gates to the Republican national con vention to tavor . J-owden for tne presidency. Following his address Matt G. Rey nolds, of St. l.ouis, was selected as chairman. Revnnlils in his cnooi-h aairl- "Thin is the first political convention here 1 have attended in 20 years. Those days we had honorable leaders." The lengthy resolutions adopted by the meeting demand the resignations of Babler and Cole and threaten legal action against them in case they do not quit.
