Remember that a vote for Bennett and his associ
ates is a vote for honesty, economy and a return to
j clear government.
Remember that a vote for the Democratic county
i ticket js also a vote for honesty, economy and decency
in the administration of county affairs.
Remember that a vote for the so called Republican
county and state ticket is NOT a vote for the Repub
lican party, but a vote for machine which has throttled
die party. Republicans owe it no allegiance. l’t was
nominated by the machine,and not by the party.
Remember that the Seherr people in their brief
before the national committee said “Fraud taints ev
erything that it touches and corrupts every title that
was founded upon it. Ohas. W. Swisher and his asso
ciates having obtained their socalled nominations by
fraud and political theft, they are not the ‘regular’
nominees no more than the proverbial 4wolf in sheep's
clothing' is a genuine sheep.”
Remember that the entire Republican state ticket,
except Mr. Glasscock, who was substituted for Mr.
wisher, was nominated at this convention.
Remember also that this convention was called to
order and presided over by one W. W. Whyte, a bank
defaulter, county defaulter, embezzler, and friend of
Remember that tho Republican party did not nom
inate? Un? machine ticket named at Charleston, but that
it is, in entirely, a creature of the bosses.
Remember that the Republican party did not nom
inate Glasscock, but that lie was named by Elkins.
Remember that a vote for the Democratic state
ticket is a vote foy separate coaches for whites and
blacks, and that a vote for the Republican machine is a
vote against your wives, mothers, sisters and daugh
ters, and a l(’quest by you for them to ride in the same
•u: c!n s with tin* coke oven negrtes'.
Remember that the expenditures under MeCorklo
mm 1893 to 18‘)7 amounted to only $2,694,280, and
that the expenditures under Dawson have reached $6,
•>01,110, an increase of $3,600,820 for four years ,or
more than $900,000.00 a year, which is nearly three
tunes as much a under Democratic rule.
Rtmember that the contingent, expenses of the
last p. m jcrati.c state senate were only $1,700, and
iliaL '.or the regular session of 1907 under Dawson it
reached $20,000 more than eleven times as much as it
was under a Democratic u< minsitration.
Remember that the contingent expenses of the
last Democratic house of delegates was only $3,000,
while under Republican rule last year it reached the
enormous sum of $15,000, five times as much as it was
under Democratic administration.
Remember that tho employees of the senate in
1893 when in control of the Democrats cost $3.27 a day
for each member; in 1907 they cost $15.42 per member
under Republican machine rule.
Remember that the contingent expenses per mem
ber for the house of delegates under the Democrats in
1893 were $1.45 a day per member; last year they were
$14.81 per member under Republican machine rule.
Remember the two county tickets.
Remember that the Republican county ticket was
not named by the rank and file of the party, but by the
machine and hired negroes.
ivcmeraoer mat arter a "iraignirorwaru, nonest ana
intelligent man had received a majority of the votes
over the machine candidate for county court, flic* .vote
was taken over again and attain until Davis Thorn was
by some ho*»k or crook conn ted in.
Remember that when a candidate for clerk of the
county court was placed before the eonvention other
than tin* machine candidate, the ringsters would not
even give the good ,Republicans an opportunity to vote
upon the nomination.
Remember that the Republican county court ex
pended last year more than £14,000 over the actual in
come of the county.
Remember that this same county court has the pe
culiar habit of giving contracts to the highest instead
of the lowest bidders, for instance, the building of the
iron fence around the court house at $1,000.00 when
another man would have done the same work for $450;
that it let the contract for keeping the paupers to the
highest bidder; that it let the contract for painting the
tank at the court house at $110 when another painter
would have done the same work for $75.00; that it em
ployed Davis Thorn’s son as janitor at the court house
at $50.00 a month, and the n hired a man to do the work
These are only a few instances. $8,500 has been expen
ded in direct violation of the law in the past few years,
to say nothing of the graft. The machine has endors
ed these illegal acts by renominating the guilty officials I
Renumber iliat the Republican candidate for pros
ecuting attorney allowed this and that be now rests un
der accusations which he has no*, and cannot denv.
Remember that these violations i»f the law and the
graft of public officials has become so notorious and
flagrant that the honest Republicans of the country dis
triots arc almost a unit, in opposition to the machine
•Remerneber the accusations made against Davis
Thorn by the Reformer which he has not and cannot
deny. If the charges were false he is in a position to
contradict them.
Remember that the Democratic ticket stands for
honesty, economy and decency; that there is not the
breath of suspicion aginnst a single man on the Demo
cratic ticket.
