AN EFFICIENT TICKET.
It behooves every loyal Democrat
to vote the Democratic ticket
November 5th, and by doing so he
stands squarely behind the Presi
dent in all war policies advocated
by our chief executive. Last week
the News said that all persons who
are opposed to Socialism or Bolshev
ikism should vote the
truly cays that the county ticket is
controlled by the Democratic party,
and that being the case what reason
lias the News to say 100 per cent loy
al Americans should vote the Repub
lican ticket? There is no difference
In the brand of Democracy or in the
stand which the candidates on the
Democratic ticket have taken in for
mer elections, but the News seems to I
be trying to make.an Issue out of
On the other band the News
tills. If so, let the News tome out
and say what Democratic candidates
are not 100 per cent loyal, and If It
can single out any person upon the
Democratic ticket who cannot stand
the loyalty test, then we are willing
to concede that he should not be i
voted for or elected to office. Until
his Is done, we are appealing to all
Democratic voters to stand squarely
behind the Democratic ticket and not
be influenced or biased by what a
few Republican party leaders may
say, inspired more by their wishes
for the success of the Republican
parly. As the Democrats need no
100 per cent loyalty clubs, every
Democrat being a patriotic citizen
and desiring to do their duty at this
lime, the Democratic ticket Is a safe
ticket to vote.

FAVOR ARMY BEEF CHANGES.
The recent announcement or the
Government policy of buying boet
for the fighting forces of Uncle Sam
nd the allies on a quality baels has
met the approval of cattle feeders.
With quality. Irrespective of weight,
as a basis feeders can make a quick
turnover on their money Invested in
cattle. They can market well-finish
ed and conditioned beeves which
weigh less than 1000 pounds for
Army or Navy disposition.' It is be
lieved the regulation will stabilize
production and better balance the
livestock Industry. The abandon
ment of the old schedule which call
ed for beef of apeclflc weights drops
the bars so that hereafter lightweight
baby beef will be available for feed

DIGGING COAL FOR PERSHING.
One day last winter, when the coal
famine was at its worst, a Senator
from Ohio recited the blunders by
reason of which the great coal pro
ducing state was deprived of even
enough fuel to keep Us University
open and its people from freezing. A
visitor in the gallery remarked : "I
wish that senator would stop talking;
he Is breaking ray heart." Out in
Ohio this year they are no longer
breaking hearts; but they are pro
ducing coal. Production Manager
J. J. Roby, of Cleveland, calls atten
tion In a statement to the fact that
General Pershing demands 900,QUO
tons more a month than Washington
figured on. "All right," says Roby,
"we'll come thnmgb with our part,
and we are now going 46,000 tons a
week over our share, and we will
make it 66,000 tons." That's the
kind of a response that Is coming
from every portion of the country,
and the fuel administration is confi
dent that it will have enough coal
for Pershing and all the rest of our
fighting military and industrial forc
es this winter.
