Only Wilson and Harmon, on
the democratic side, contested for
delegates in the Ohio presiden
tial primaries Tuesday, and the
returns indicate a victory for
Harmon. Roosevelt carried the
state over Taft by a big majority.
A nice clean-up has been made
of the vacant lots near the depot.
Many vacant lots have not been
touched so far, including some
where buildings have burned and
left a pile of trash. Next week
we shall give the names of par
ties owning these vacant lots and
who haven't enough of civic
pride to have them cleaned.

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.

People Are Aroused.
The election of Henry J. 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.

Bones Broken in a Runaway.
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.
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

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 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

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

ever had the unbridled gall pos
sessed by some of Cheyenne

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

gall-ridden plunderbund. H. T.
