“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

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
Bryan on the Issues.
The issue this year is exactly
the same that in was in 1896—
namely, the people versus Wall

paign of '96, just as the tariff
question is merely an incident of
present campaign.
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
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

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.

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
Makes no difference if he is a
They gotta quit kicking my dawg
Taking this for their cue, the
poets got busy, as follows:
Champ's on the hunt with his ole
And he’s gettin votes in every
The people are gatherin’ formiles
To vote for him and his Ozark
Every time the door bell rings
Somebody raises the price of
Makes no difference if we're as
rich as kings,
They gotta quit boostin’ the price
o’ things. I

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

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.
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

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
