The presidential primary held in Ohio, Tuesday was the hottest contest that has so far been in dulged in. Taft and Roosevelt did a great service to the country in this campaign. They gave elaborate testimony against each other showing that their admin istrations were controlled, body and soul, by the trusts and cor porations. No honest and self respecting republican can follow the lead of either Taft or Roose velt in the coming campaign. Program For Decoration Day.

Ar nold in the Denver city election held in that city Tuesday by a majority of nearly 20,000 votes marks the beginning of the rule of the people over gang methods and corporation control. Throug out this graft-ridden state the people rejoice with the good citi zens of Denver. The entire Cit izens ticket was swept into office by this great tidal wave. This is only the beginning, but it is an encouraging sign of the times. Here in Cheyenne county the peo ple have been buncoed and robbed for 10, these many years by an organized gang of political para sites. There are enough good people in this county to roll this gang this fall, and they’re going to do it. The Eastern Colorado Times is going to play a conspic uous part in this clean-up and we earnestly solicit the moral and fi nancial support of every voter in the county of whatever political faith you may be.

James McElroy, residing south of town, was badly injured in a runaway accident about six o’clock Tuesday evening. When he left town for his home he had his wagon loaded with empty barrels. Going down an incline at the creek near Wm. Campbell’s, the barrels became dislodged' and rolled off behind the mule team, carrying McElroy with them. The mules ran away and the wagon passed over him breaking both bones in the left leg below the knee, breaking the left arm bone above the elbow and otherwise injuring him in ternally and externally. The un fortunate and suffering victim was found by Pete Eiby who brought him to town about 10:00 o’clock. He was taken to the Commercial Hotel where his in juries were dressed by Dr. Booth. Several pieces of shattered bones were taken from his leg and that member may have to be amputat ed. He will be a cripple for the rest of his days if he escapes with his life. We will have something further to say about this later on. Political Discretion. The coining campaign in Chey-1 enne county for the election of county officers is a situation that' must be faced by the democratic party with the most thoughtful care and discretion. j This fall there will be a cam- ' paign Cheyenne county, the like of which has never before 1 been waged, and the result of . which has never before been dreamed. I You will be confronted, Mr. j Taxpayer by many propositions ' both in the political and the so- ■ cial calendar, and it is going to' require the exercises of your dis- j cretional faculties to circumvent the arts and the wiles, the argu ments and the, pleadings of a gang of organized political fora gers who have long been pen sioners on the bounty of the tax payers, and who are enjoying the last hours of legalized official plunder before a righteous pun-' ishment of defeat and demise. | | Every subterfuge and snare PUBLIC AUCTIONEER W.

ADDRESS, Arapahoe Phoneys Colorado known to chicanery and deceit will be used to throw you off your guard and seduce your intelli gence by any argument possible to raise that will induce you to vote for the continuance in office of men who have fed so long and lavishly at the public crib—that they refuse to look in any other direction for the means of liveli hood that you and I are following every day, for it calls for exer tion and the performance of labor to which they are unwilling to accustom themselves. They think they are the only ones fit to hold your county offices and will show a pretended insult if you take issue with them on the proposition that they are the only ones fit or capable to run your county institutions and gov ernment They will tell you they have been in office so long that the people don’t want any one else. They are afraid for the people to vote for anyone else, for fear they will be caught in their vice of displeasure and called into the office of the high lord chief executioners for pun ishment and a virile lecture on “how to take medicine when you’re not sick,” or “thedifficul ties of a homesteader after elec tion,” who has manhood and in dependence enough to vote for officials that are not bent on plun der. They will tell you to bring your family and come spend the day with them, and then they will return the call and ask you to support them at the election for old friendship’s social sake, when they haven’t been acquainted with you two weeks. They will tell you of the many kind and charitable acts they have done J. F. Me Carthy J. P. Peterson President W. R.

B since they were elected to office and how the people appreciate their efforts for them and their desire to see them re-elected. You will be told anything to suit the occasion, and as soon as the election is over and they are safe in office, you will be thrown into the alley. They wont need you any longer then and you can go to farming for a living while they sit in your court house and levy taxes on you, off of which they feed, and buy whisky for the next election. There is one thing you can always get from the “ring,” and that is whisky. They will give you all the whisky you want or cap drink, for they know that whisky degrades, and they want to get you down to their level. They will tell you they will run you for office next time and that all of their gang will stand by you to a man, and guarantee your election, if you will help elect them “this time.” They will solemnly promise, with their hand raised to high heaven the very same thing to twenty different people, when they know they can’t and don’t intend to try to do it All they want to do is to deceive you into supporting them at the coming election. No government mule ever had the unbridled gall pos sessed by some of Cheyenne Wells' republican aspirants for office. One in particular, a ruffian of the sacred order of pluto, who is scratching himself to pieces with the itch in his de sire to remain at the public crib. Gall, unadulterated and chemi cally pure is as nothing compared to the superating, festering fus tules that line the carcass of this gall-ridden plunderbund. H. T.
