EASTERN COLORADO TIES
(Successor to Divide Farmer) Cheyenne Wells, Colo, WALTER L. BALES, Editor Published every Friday in Cheyenne Wells, Cheyenne county Colorado, and entered at the postoffice as second class mall matter, April 3,1912 under the Act of March 8. 1P79. Subscription One Dollar the Tear Takwater A Bales, Owners II. Y. Tarwater Walter L. Bale “No man is fit to be a lawgiver for a mighty people who yields to the demands and solicitations of the few who have access to his ear and is forgetful of the vast multitude who may never hear his voice or look into his face.” '--Champ Clark You don't hear much these days about “infant industries.” Fact is. they have grown to be such big boys that they are now called “trusts.” 'Spose that there will be many right here in this state who will vote this fall for the protection of “our infant industries.” Mr. Bryan would be satisfied with the nomination of a demo crat whose political views are ac ceptable to him. Mr. Roosevelt would be satisfied with the nom ination of no republican but him self. Mr. Bryan places the cause above self. With Mr. Roosevelt “the cause is I.” Mr. Taft is giving the people some very interesting inside his tory regarding Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Roosevelt is doing his utmost to inform the public as to the crookedness of Mr. Taft and Taft’s administration. And the G. O. P. is holding up its hands in horror at the records of both. The Honorable Taft and the Honorable Roosevelt are at log gerheads and are going at each other hammer and tongs. As a good old republican said to us Monday, “ ‘when thieves fall out honest men get their dues,’” which is an indication that many republicans will not vote for either one of them. John Forker, who is the highest paid official in Cheyenne county for the labor done, was allowed by our board of most obliging county commissioners three hun dred dollars for a deputy in his office, that he may have six months of the time he is paid for by the tax payers, to loaf. Let him pay his deputy out of his own packet, and not filch it from the tax payers through the board of county commissioners. His depu ty would make the county a good assessor, why not try him one term. Bryan on the Issues. The issue this year is exactly the same that in was in 1896— namely, the people versus Wall street.

The real question is whether the government is to be run by the people, in the interest of the people, or by Wall street, in the interest of Wall street. The fight made by the dem ocratic party in 1896 was the first great protest against the control of the government by the predatory interest. The Wall street democrats then joined the republican party and, with the aid of the largest campaign fund ever used, and by means of coer cion such as was never practiced before, defeated the democratic ticket. Prairie Dog and Gopher Poison. We are prepared to send out to the people of Colorado poisoned grains of our own preparation for the destruction of prairie dogs and squirrels or gophers. The price charged will only be suffic ient to cover cost. To persons who prefer to prepare their own poisoned grain, we will send full directions free. The best time to poison squirrels and prairie dogs is in late winter or early spring when there is little or no green stuff that they can find to eat. For full information, write this office or address Prof. S. Ar thur Johnston, Fort Collins, who is in charge of the rodent inves tigations. C. P. Gillette Colorado Experiment Station Fort Collins, Colo. Boom Your Country. When a stranger comes to town button-hole him. Get him off to one side and impress on him that you want to sell out at a bargain; that you are anxious to go to some other country. Tell him you didn’t do enough business last year to pay for your shoes. Avoid saying, however, that you spent two or three months in the city and visiting relatives who were as anxious to leave their location as you are yours. Tell the gentleman that you do not mix with your neighbors— they are not quite up to the standard. Tell him all about Mrs. S. and Mr. V. and how un couth is Mrs. Q. and Miss T. Tell him that there is no society fit to be in; that there is nothing to go to. Tell him again that you just detest the place; that it is the worst ever and that you are just going away. Be careful not to say you had nothing when you located where you are and that you have done nothing but kick all the time you have been there and that what you have you are not deserving of. Then tell him again that you are going to sell out and if he doesn’t buy, you will sell to the first one who makes an offer and he better buy because you just must leave. If by this time he is not in hysterical convulsions he will probably take the first train out or more likely start afoot and you will go on singing your tale of woe and wonder why the poor fool did not buy your property so you could squander the money. Alas, how little charity there is to some people. Notice of School Election.

Signed M. P. Trumbor, President. Chas. Parker, Treasurer. Lauretta M. Wells, Sec. Democratic War Cry. Democrats with poetry in their souls are coming to bat in every part of the United States with protests against any futher abuse of that “ole hound dog.” Years ago some unknown poet of the Ozarks wrote a few home ly verses about a certain hound which every one seemed to kick around, and now that Missouri has produced a likely candidate for president, the plain ballad from the zink laden hills of Missouri has leaped into national fame. A Washington newspaper has offered a prize for additional verses. Even members of Con gress are competing. The first verse runs as follows of the original song: Every time I come to town, The boys start kicking my dawg aroun’; Makes no difference if he is a houn'; They gotta quit kicking my dawg aroun’;*’ Taking this for their cue, the poets got busy, as follows: Champ's on the hunt with his ole houn’. And he’s gettin votes in every town, The people are gatherin’ formiles aroun’ To vote for him and his Ozark houn’. Every time the door bell rings Somebody raises the price of things, Makes no difference if we're as rich as kings, They gotta quit boostin’ the price o’ things. I INSTRUCTED FOR CLARK The Colorado Springs Conven tion Endorse the Great Missourian For the Presidency. The Colorado Springs Conven tion was one long continuous progressive democratic success. State Chairman Geo. T. Bradley called the convention to order at 11:00 o’clock when Frank Annis, of Fort Collins, was selected as temporary chairman and later made permanent chairman under a motion suggesting the tempo rary organization be made per manent. The secretary called the roll of counties and the con vention was in motion. Three committees were then appointed to devise ways and means for putting the convention on its feet and preparing it for the ex ecution of the duties for which it was called. One member from each county comprise these com mittees, which were: Com. on Resolutions; Com. on Permanent Organization fend Order of Busi ness; Com. on Credential* This We would respectfully call the atten tion of Cahill & Wells, to the following facts: We have already unloaded two of our own cars of Seed and will unload the Flax next week. It did not take the combined resources of three business houses to purchase these cars. We did not guarantee the prices' of <.ny seeds but stated that we would sell at cost, plus the actual hand ling charges. We invite you to look over our receipted bills for the seed. We put this answer in our advertise ment, not to keep up a fight, which these popular and en terprising philanthropists declare “is on,” but to let the people of the county see how easy it is for a movement which was started to help the farmer get his crops in as cheaply as possible to be jumped on by our progressive merchants, who are against anything in the county that does not pay tribute direct to them. Cahill & Wells are doing everything in their power to put this bank, out of business, but we still manage to get three square meals a day, and have hopes that we can continue in that happy condition for some time to come. TRADERS STATE BANK Cheyenne Wells, Colo. last committee had a contest to settle from Denver county, and they settled it in good old up-to date western style, and theft- ac tion endorsed. Just before these committees retired, H. Y. Tarwater, delegate from Cheyenne county, arose in the convention and requested that ex-Governor Alexander M. Dockery, of Missouri, be permit ed to address the convention. The request met with hearty ap proval. Dockery’s dissertation on Champ Clark and the “houn’ dawg” were so lucid in their simple earnestness, so plain and unerring in their modesty and truth, the convention laughed with a hearty earnestness that bespoke pleasure, and clapped their hands and stomped their feet and shouted like a big crowd of husky school boys being treat ed to ice cream and lemonade at a 4th of July picnic. No promi nent public speaker of national reputation ever had come to him with more enlivening rapidity and distinct success such splen did thoughts as they did to Mr. Dockery, under the inspiration of his subject, and the restrained impatience of the crowd to cheer. He made the most convincing ar gument on the right of the peo ple to rule by selecting leaders like Champ Clark, and to start in by selecting him for president ever presented to any audience by any speaker except Bryan. Gov. Dockery followed Bryan’s theory, and his audience liked it and showed their appreciation by cheers and applause. The Gov J. F. Me Carthy J. p. Peterson President W. R.

Phone 0. ernor’s rhetorical genius stood him well in hand as he floated from cloud to cloud, from star to star qnd planet to planet in his chimerical empyrians, while de scribing the natural virtues pos sessed by Mr. Clark, for Gov. Dockery was addressing ladies, from the country school Marm delegate to the high Priestess of the public school systems of the state, as well as he was address ing gentlemen with political minds and thought. An audi ence indeed, of more than ordi nary intelligence and one per fectly competent to criticise. Gov. Dockery electrified his audience and they drank freely at the fountain of reason as he turned its limpid waters into channels thtey could easily reach, and for which they were search ing. The Governor never exhib ited better control or greater en ergy and strength than when he stood before the convention at Colorado Springs, April 29th, the champion of Clark, of Missouri, for president, who was his as sociate and compeer in Congress for 16 years. It is as natural for Dockery to be for Clark as it is for virtue to be for truth. He told the Colorado convention that Champ Clark was of, by and for the people and that he was and is against the amassing of great wealth in the hands of a few by special privilege, and they evi denced their belief in these state ments by the matter set out in the report of the committee on resolutions.
