The best appeal the democrats
are making to the country is based
■on their promise not to disturb the
republican legislative achievements.

been weighed and found not want

right place, and Whitman county

The democratic argument this
year should be printed in the hu
morous columns. It is, in brief:
* 'You need not be afraid of us, for
if we elect a president and house,
the republican senate will keep us
from doing any damage."
There's not a man in Whitman ■
county but knows the material ad
vantages that will come to Eastern
Washington through an open river 1
to the sea. The return of Wesley |
L. Jones to congress by a good big
majority will help the cause of an

J. R. Ruply has the business
qualifications that will make him a
good county commissioner. This
is the most important office from a
local standpoint to bo filled next
month, and Mr. Ruply is worthy of
the vote of every man who believes
the business of the county should
be conducted on business lines aud
In W. O. McCaw Whitman
county has had a most efficient and
capable clerk. His administration
of the public tiust has greatly
pleased his Pullman friends who
two years ago asked that his name
be placed udon the ticket. His
unanimous re-nominaiion came this
year as a reward for duty faithfully
discharged. Mr. McCaw is a man
with the confidence and esteem of
the people, aud is entitled to your
Send a Solid Delegation.
It is rumored that certain repub
licans intend to vote for Peter Mc-
Gregor and scratch Leroy Stilson,
that others will vote for Leroy Stil
•on and scratch Peter McGregor, in
the seventh representative district.
It has also been stated that the
same kind of work would be done
in the Eighth district, where E. E.
Smith and G. C. Kenoyer are the
nominees. It often happens that
the voter, in casting such a ballot,
helps to bring about the defeat of
the very man ho wishes to elect.
The best way to bring about the
election «f the men you wish is to
vote the republican legislative tick
et without a scratch. No better
men are before the people for legis
lative honors than Peter McGregor,
Leroy Stilson, E. E. Smith and G.
C. Kenoyer. Only one senator is
to be selected in the county this
year; therefore, for that office it is
either a republican you want or a
democrat. H. M. Boone, the re
publican nominee, is one of the
strongest men in the county and
will be elected.
All five men on the republican
legislative ticket are commission
men from the sole of their feet to
the crown of their heads. If you
want to be sure that the Whitman
delegation will work for such a
measure in the next legislature,
vote the republican legislative tick
et straight. A solid delegation will
be able to accomplish more than
will one that is divided. Send a
delegation to Olympia that will
work for Whitman county first,
last, and all the time. A republi
can delegation will do that and do
it well. The nominees are men
who will be able to work together
and accomplish something for their

one month. She is hysterical since
the accident, and it requires the
combined efforts of several persons
to keep her quiet.
