The trusts have been organized, established they have grown and fattened under Republican admin istration. If we thought it were possible for them to thrive under a Democratic administration this paper would unqualifiedly re nounce both the old parties. The man who calls himself a Democrat and favors the trust which con trols a single branch of trade is an anomalv. "Equal rights to all and special privileges to none." If that is Democratic the trusts cannot be. Plundering the people for the benefit of the trusts is not the only evil of magnitude to be laid at the door of the Republican party. One hundred and fifty millions a year in pensions to buy votes with and the war closed i3 years ago. Is that all? Ninety thousand new public positions created within the last twelve years and one nuncirea millions a year more to buy votes with. Is that all? No! lhe Re publican party is endeavoring to distribute more pensions and to create more offices with which to entrench itself permanently in nower. The idea is to create pos tal savings banks, parcels post, and rnanv other government agen cies through which to control suf frage. Was it ever the intention of the founders of our popular govern ment to create a royal house, royal f ami Hps and retinues? Was it ever contemplated that Represent atives in Congress and in the Sen ate should vote themselves greater salaries and larger perquisites double that of Democratic admin istrations, for the purpose of lavi and extravagant entertainment a maintenance? The excuse was that Washington living was too high. But not so high that Con gressmen cannot live on $5,000 a year when numbers of their col leagues are living on half or a lit tle more than half the amount. : Extravagance! s the bill ?

There will be many bogus tickets distributed broadcast. The correct ticket is printed at the head of this nase in this paper. Cut it out and when you go to vote, compare the names and , see if they are cor rect. Be sure to do this and then you can rest assured that you have voted the Democratic ticket The course pursued by Governor Patterson in ordering the State troops to Reelfoot Lake and in de taining all suspects in connection with the murder of Quentin Ran kin last week is meeting with the approval of all good people as far as we have heard express them selves. In the opinion of this pa nel- it was not only the proper thing to do but the only right way of handling the affair,, i he promptness with which the Gov ernor acted and theTeffectiveness with which the work is being ac complished is commented upon most favorably everywhere. The murderers of Capt. Rankin should be hhnted down and punishment meted out to them in the same manner that other crimiruils are dea t with. S sons for this.
