There canfnotjbe a doubt con
cerning the effortfonjthe part of
this government tokeep out of
war and to securefpeace for oth
ers through diptomatic channels,
and so far it has succeeded in
avoiding serious trouble. "But
the war spirit .throughout the
world is nowjaroused and more
than likely this government can
not play the roll of the Good Sa
maritan much longer. There
seems to be no end to Mexico's
troubles, and every movement
points to a S counter rebellion
against the Caranza government
on the part ofGen. Villa and his
followers. Should such a war
iopen up it is likely that our gov
ernment would be compelled to
intervene. Should such a step
be taken it would mean fight and
and fight to the finish. In the
meantime evidence exists that
Japan wants to measure arms
with the United States, and it is
the opinion ofijpnany well in
formed on the situation, that we
are approaching trouble with
that country, not because of real
harm done Japan, but of racial
.feeling manifested in the Califor
nia Alien land laws, and the de
sire of Japan to more firmly es
tablish her claim as one of the
great powers. Come what may,
be the cost heavy as this country
is able to bear, Japan had better
live within the bounds of peace
with Uncle Sam, for Americans
would rise in full power to smite
the "Yellow peril, v On the
part of Mexico the feeling is
quite of a different character,
but if war can not be avoided, if
our country is forced to settle
the trouble, we believe it should
be done on a business basis as
demanded by Mr. Watterson un
der his position "On to Pan
.ama. ' ' This country has evident
ly reached the limit of forbear
ance, exhausted its peace balm in
trying to make two curs love
each other, to guard safely the
bone over which they have been
fighting, so if it must enter the
fight we believe it should take
charge of the herd. "On to Pan
jama" is the slogan under which
the stars and stripes should be
unfurled beyond tbe Rio Grand if
intervention be foroed on us.
The last month before the
election is about starting, and
we again warn the Democrats of
Adair and adjoining counties not
to become too sanguine and lose
interest in the various races.
Apathy upon the part of friends
often loses an election. It is the
party that works all the time
like it had strong opposition that
most generally wins at the polls.
When candidates' and their
friends fight from the rising of
the sun to the setting thereof,
they are invariably successful on
the day ofgthe election. In vot
ing for Gov.SSBeckham, Senator
Camden andJCongressman Helm
you vote to indorse the adminis
tration ofWoodrow Wilson, the
greatestSPresident that was ever
inaugurated, thejman who is in
favor of peace, and who has
done and is doing now every
thing in hispower to keep the
UnitedJ"StatesLon good terms
withjall nations of the world, a
man whose administration is
meeting the requirements of this
country's needs; the man who
has said to themoney kings, you
can start a financial panic in
New York.abut you can not in
the country thatjhe would see
that the banks out in the States
were furnished with sufficient
money to meet local demands.
He stands for the country, and
wants to seei her fgrow in agri-
culture, manufacture and in all
other industries at as little ex-
pense as possible to the tax-pay-1

praise of his administration from
all lovers of good government,
and there is scarcely a doubt but
he will succeed himself as Presi
dent of the United States.
No greater compliment was
ever paid a local candidate than
the one received by Judge Rollin
Hurt from the Democrats of
Adair county, where he was born
and reared, and where he has
actively engaged in the practice
of law for more than thirty years.
As a candidate, for the nomina
tion for Appellate Judge out of
thirteen hundred Democratic
votes cast in Adair county, he
lost twenty-eight. When you
take into consideration that Judge
Hurt hasibeen, some years ago,
County Attorney, making it his
duty to prosecute, and since the
close of his term for that office,
has been on one side of every
important case tried in Adair,
is it not remarkable that he did
not incense more of his fellow
men? Is it not an evidence that
he, does clean work, having the
full confidence of his fellow citi
zens? We want to see Adair
county at the coming election
cast more votes for him than was
ever recorded for any one man.
If the people of the third Ap
pellate district want a judge who
is as well qualified for a seat on
the Appellate bench as any man
in the district, and one whose
character is as 'spotless as any
man who ever wore the ermine,
vote for Rollin Hurt. Edmonton
If you believe in the adminis
tration of Woodrow Wilson, the
greatest President this country
has ever had, work in the Inter
est of the 'Democratic candidates
for office and vote for them at
the November election.
, Thirty-three days until, the
November election. Let every
Democrat in the county make up
his mind to be at the polls.
