Tells His Experience.
There is nothing like a talk with
one of our own citizens for giving
hope and encouragement to the anx
ious sufferer from the dread kidney
disease. We, therefore, give here an
interview with a Starkville man:
“Several years ago I used Doan’s
Kidney Pills and well remember the
good they did me,” says Mr. Lanier.
“When a man gets along in years,
his kidneys are lively to cause more
or less trouble and I surely have had
my share of it. My kidneys acted
too frequently and caused me to get
up during the night, and I lost much
sleep. Doan’s Kidney Pills gave me
the desired relief and did more than
I expected. I know they are a reli
able remedy and take pleasure-, in
giving this endorsement.”

The League of Nations
The League of Nations seems to be
the paramount issue in the campaign
and, being a Nationalist and then an

then a partisan, I am prompted to
stand unreservedly with those who
demand that the League, as submit

Patrfbts of the George Washing
ton and Patrick Henry type were
never known to wait until the war
was far advanced before getting in;
neither were they ever lax in their
patriotism after the smoke of battle
had cleared away. Patriotism, I be
lieve, is not a thing to be put off or
on, but should be an every-day garb
to be worn in election years, peace
years as well as in years of war.
The naked question before the
people in the present campaign is’

Another important and vital ques
tion which should not be side-tracked
is UNIONISM. On this question I
have very decided views. I would
prefer to stand with and for the
great mass of our people rather than
with the A. F. L., as it has been con
ducted. I believe the demands and
the necord of this organization are
indefensible and un-American, and
that its policies have been largely
dictated by foreign sentiment, sown
and cultivated by undesirable for
eigners here on our own American
The records, in my judgement,
show that Mr. Gompers, President
and Chief of all the Unions, is auto
cratic, anarchistic, unpatriotic, and
wholly un-American. Notwithstand
ing all this, he has been, and is to
day, dictator in the councils of the
Democratic party, and the two Wil
son administrations. He, (Gomp
ers) has by threats and coercion, de
manded and received special favors
for the few, which many believe has
proved ruinous for the masses. This,
I believe, has not been good for our
Country, and should no longer be l
by the American people. j
Asa partial remedy for this evil, I
advocate the passage of a law by i
Congress which would eliminate from
eyery branch of Government service
all persons belonging to any Union,
or branch of the A. F. L. This law
should also apply to the Public Ser
vice Corporation. The Government
tmd the public should no longer leave
themselves open to assault and de
struction from this source.
Judging the future by the past, it
is sheer folly to expect or even hope
for any relief along this line from
the Democratic party, or a Demo
cratic Administration who are now
bidding for the Union vote, and will
no doubt have its support in this
campaign. Gompers has sent forth

the result will be.
Cox in the White House, with a
Democratic Congress, to me, means
nothing more or less than four more
years of Gomperism.
Democratic Extravagence and
High Taxation
Government Expenditures is an
other important question which we
should not overlook. We are spend
ing entirely too much money. Taxes
are too heavy, and must be reduced,
or the government will be bankrupt,
and in the hands of a receiver. The
Republican Congress (last session)
11 on £™ ord as havin £ saved more
than $250,000,000. to the tax-payers
iy cutting this amount from useless
appropriations asked for by our pres
ent Democratic Administration. We
have an over-supply of Government,
employees. Too many Boards and
Commissions attempting to run our
business, both public and private.
I believe we have about 150,000
names on the public pay rolls which
should be taken off, and could, I be
lieve, be done without crippling the
service of any department. None
ot those in the Departments in
Washington, thanks to Mr. Gomn
i ers, even pretend to work more than
| seven hours per day. I favor cut
| ting this horde to the minimum, stop
ping their pay checks, thereby sav
ing millions to the tax-payer.
' ,£ ow ’ I? conclusion, if you agree
with me that our Government should
retain excusive control of its own
business, that it should no longer be
dominated by Gomperism, and that
it should be operated at a minimum
ot cost, I solicit your support in the
coming November elections, even
though you may have been born and
reared in the “Solid South" and the
Mate of Mississippi, where I myself
was born, and have lived all my life.
