Entered at the Post Office as Second Class matter. . DEED H. MAYAR. Editor and Proprietor. issued Every Friday. (Subscription 11.00 per year In advance. Address all communications to The Leaven- Worth Echo. FIIIDAY. OCTOBER 7, 1 ltd I A CLEAN TICKET sum I. it HAVE • Till! PARTY VOTE The editor of this paper does not believe in a personal cam[ paign. Me does not believe that n political campaign conducted along these lines is so effective as one conducted in a high toned, honorable manner. Nothing is so unmanly, dishonorable and degrading as a heated political campaign waged on personal is sues. So far the present campaign has been unusually free from this only too common practice, and it must be a source of no lit tle satisfaction and gratification to the people. The candidates on the republican county ticket have conducted an honorable, open and above board fight. They have refrained from mak ing personal attacks on their op ponents and have likewise re fused to make an appeal to the prejudice of the voter. Content ing themselves with an appeal to principles. This line has been steadily ad hered to by this paper. We have not advised the demouratic voter who believes in the princi ples of his party to desert those principles and vote for any man on the republican ticket. On the other hand we have been con tent with urging Ihe duty on those who believe in the prin ciples pf the republican party as laid down in the republican plat form, who believe in the theory of government as administered by the (republican party for the past fif|y years, to vole the re publican ticket and vote it straight, If there was a single mdn oil the local republican tick et who was not worthy of the confidence and support of the republican voters of Chelan county we would not hesitate to say so. If there was one man before the people of this county for office on the republican ticket who is not qualified to discharge the duties of the office which he seeks we would not hesitato to state the fact, so that the voter might erase his name and if he saw lit insert the name of some other man. Fortunately the republican party of Chelan county put be fore the votars a good, strong, clean and capable lot of men, ■who it is the duty of every con scientious republican to loyally support. The republican who scratches a single name off the ticket does so through prejudice, spite or passion, and these are all unworthy motives. Your duty to your principles will not excuse you when you allow your perso»al attachments to inter ere wifth your political duty. The editor of this paper believes that the proper and conscien tious discharge of one's political duty is one of the highest obliga tions that rest on a citizen. Do your du-ty honestly, fear lessly and faithfully. If you are a democrat and believe in the doctrine, the theory and the practice of the democratic party, we say frankly, vote the demo catic ticket and vote it straight. If your vote elects a republican to office in this county we prom ise you he will do all he can for the next two years to convert you and your friends to the wholesome doctrine of republi wuTwm, by appealing to" your Did You Ever KICK YOURSELF? Because you did not take advantage of an opportunity to buy cheap property in a growing town? Is^~Many times you have you heard the remark: "I could have bought that lot for fifty dollars three years ago, and last week it sold for fifteen hundred," or something similar. There are numerous instances where thousands of dollars have been made in fortunate real estate investments. Wo have used modest fig ures because we did not want to seem to exaggerate. Real estate does not die, does not burn up and can not bo destroyed by storm or ilood. Nothing is so safe. : : : : : : Right here in Leavenworth small fortunes have been made within the last two years by the increase in the price of real estate. :::::;::'• : : The Peachey Addition to Wenatchee Is the last close-in land that can be platted into desirable town property. Beginning three blocks from the court house it lies east and south on a high plateau overlooking the town and the fair grounds. It will be cut up into one acre tracts and lots and every tract and lot will have a perpetual water right from the high line canal. It will be sold on terms to suit purchaser. It is in the most desirable location to make an ideal home, and as the town grows it will enhance in value while you sleep, just as all other Wenatchee valley property has advanced that has changed hands in the last two years. : : : : : : The registration books show that the population of Wenatchee has just about doubled in two years. Pre vious to the last election 500 voters registered, this year one thousand have registered. : No town in the state of Washington shows a greater percentage of increase in population.

A republi can always wants you to come into the fold and share with him the best there is under a repub lican administration. But, my republican friend, and this is no appeal to your prejudices, rather to your good common sense, and to your belief that the theory of government as administered by the republican party is the bet ter of the two, and that the per petuation of that theory depends upon how you cast your vote. Vote for every man from con stable to president, who will help kesp the party in power that enables you to make a liv ing. HOW A SOIiTHUHN IIH.noiHAT BE (■A.IIK A HKPI'BLK'AN A gentleman who has lived in the state of Washington fora number of years, and now lives in Douglas county and is on gaged in farming and stock rais ing, recently told the writer how he came to be a republican. He said he was born and raised in the state of Louisiana. All his relations were of the democratic faith and he himself had always voted the democratic ticket until a few years ago, when one even ing he said to his wife "I was born and raised a democrat and have always voted tho ticket. All my family are democrats, but I have noticed for several years that we always got along better under a republican administra tion,'times were better and we could make some money, but when the democratic party got into power times got hard and wo had to live close, and we could not save anything, so I have concluded to vote the re publican ticket from now on. I never held an office in my life. Never wanted one. Do not want an office now and never expect to have one,and we are getting old. the children are growing up and there are only a few more years left for me to work, and I can not see the sense of voting for a party that never did mo any good. On the contrary, when it LEAVENWORTH ECHO. got into power it always did me harm. Now what do you think of it, wife?" So the matter was thoroughly talked over between himself and wife that night, and she agreed with him. Ever since that time, he said he had voted the republican ticket, and he knew of no reason why he should regret making the change. He said the first repub lican vote he cast went a little against the grain, but now that he has gotten used to it, when he looks back he only thinks of it as a matter of prejudice. Here was a good sensible man who was confronted with a the ory and a condition. The theory ho did not attempt to reason out —he gave it up, but the condition he could feel, it confronted him, it was a part of his every day life, and ho put his prejudice be hind and came out boldly on the side of his wife, his children and his home.
