There is a great eco nomic nm! moral quaation behind all this tlml has to do with the pub lic conscience. The teiil question ie, "Is it right or just to tax .lones to build up Smith's business and fortune!" That is what a prOtOC' live tariff dues, ami no amount of sophistry and fulsc reasoning can change this fact and make it right, morally or otherwise, (jet that idea firmly fixed in your mind and then vote to place the government in charge of the party that is pledged to ranted this inexcusable wrong against the welfare of the drugging millions of our popula tion. The Democratic party is the only party that is opposed to fos tering special interests and taxing the people to build up the private fortunes ol a lev, government - fa vored individual!. Government has waxed corrupt and the favored interests have grown arrogant and oppressive under this system that robs the people of their substance to enrich the few. Free yourself from this injustice and oppression by electing a Democratic Congress and President who are pledged to Hhnlish it. Congressman lleusley came in .Saturday from his campaign work in some of the counties of the dis trict, and was out again Monday to meet oilier appointments. He is delighted ami greatly encouraged by the crowds thai have come out to hear him and at the enthusiasm displayed by the people. There is a confident feeling in the uir that Wilson will be elected President and that Major and the whole Dem ocratic State ticket will sweep ev arytbing before them, it is well fnr the Democrats tn lie confident. just confident enough to make them get down to hard work and every man go to the polls und cast a straight Democratic ballot on elee- I tion day. That is the only way to make confidence bring victory. We believe Mr. Dcnsley will be elected to Congress by a larger majority than that of two years ago, but our belief won't amount to any thing unless the Democrats turn oat and vote as they should.

WODLDM 'T CONTRIBUTE TO REPUBLICAN 8LOSH FUND ' GOT HIB WALKING PAPERS. Harry M. Sears, an employe at State Hospital No. 4, was discharg ed from that institution last Mon day He says he whs aaaessed :;.nnllfr,.KHII,.1 Hensl.-v. whoae n,e..rd for the Republican caeapeUgn fund, but declined t pay booanci be was a Democrat. His discharge follow-! ed without cause being given. If Mr. Sears' statement Is true, and we have no reason to doubt it, for he is u truthful young man, In- de icrvei credit for his manlinen ami i independence. In an interview with the St. Louis 1 Republic over the long distune, tel ephone, Superintendent Waterman Is reported to have said that he dis charged Mr. .-lears for "inoubordin atloni" that After the latter had de cllned to pay the ussessnieut on the ground that he wus u Democrat, he i Waterman i said to him, "Come on and be a g md fellow, you are eating Republican pie," and Sears retort ed, "I'll be If I do; I um earn ing all 1 gel." If Mr. Sears wus a little emphatic in hia last retort, perhaps he Is to be excused on the persist, nc,. of the Superintendent to hold him up und his Kentucky blood. It seems that all the employes, among whom It appears there cere thirteen Democrat!, were aiieiead in proportion to their wuges some f'.', some 8, some iM, und fi on, anil as last Saturday wus pay day Dr. Watermuii was on huud, aittini: at on,, end of the table as the Treai urer pussed the pay envelopes to employes, to see who might refuse und who would puv. His presence there wus unusual and doubtless was regarded, especially by the Democratic employes, us u mildcoer cive 1 'in watching you ; you must pay if you "eat Republican pie." Kul when did State Hospital No. 4 become a Republican Institution'.' We thought it was a State institu tion. Its employes ure paid by the State to work for the State, and not to he bled by the Republican party. Assessing them on their wages to pay Republican campaign expenses Is just us much of u graft aa if Dr. Waterman were to assess them for his own personal benefit for the privilege of Working under him, Hut that Is a code of public morals per haps which the school of politics under which Dr Waterman had his training can't appreciate.

Philip Pipkin, one of the stalwart young Democrats of St. Kratn ois county, introduced Mr. Polk In a well turned speech that earned tor him a warm und respnuai vc ap plauae. The Governor prefaced l is apeech with commendatory words for Hie Democratic nominee for (Jov ernor, Mr. Mujor and the other men, imposlnir the State ticket, for on- Congroao he applauded, and for the county Democratic ticket, He then took up the national ticket and na tional Issues. "Woodrow Wilson said he. is the best equipped man mentally for the presidency who bus been nomin ated fur thai otiice since the daye of Thomaa Jefferson. Not only does he possess intellectual utluiniic iits of the highest order, but be has moral Courage to a rare degree. His fight against Smith in New Jersey was one of the bravest things u candidate for President ever did. His victory in the defeat of Smith Is a warning to all privileged serv ing political bosses that their reign is over and the rule of the people has begun under the leadership of Woodrow Wilson as the cuptlan of a regenerated Democrucv. if he keeps lip the fight, as I believe he will, ugulust the domination of the pow ers thul prey in party and public af fairs, he will give the nation u new birth of freedom. There is no reason why every Democrat, und every good citiztn for that mailer, should not vote for Wilson." "I have tteen over a good part of the F.ast," laid Mr. Folk, "and through the States of Kansas, lown and Webraefca, and believe It a rea sonable prediction in say that Wil son will have the largeet majority in the electoral college that auv President ever received. That he will carry at least three-fourths of the states is a prophesy justified by existing conditions; In fact, ther Is not a State In the Union that Wil son inuy not carry ; there are some perhaps that he will not curry, but no State can be named that he is certain not to curry. On the other hand, there is no State that either Roosevelt or Taft is sure of curry ing. Cither one or the other may curry some State or States. Then Is no Slate, however, that is abso lutely certain for either of them. "Mr. Talt in the old duys, when the people were asleep, would huve been considered a good President, but be bus utterly failed to kee step in the march ugulust entrenched privilege. He wus described by thf lute Senator Dolllver of lowu, us a "good follow surrounded by men who knew exactly what they want." He permitted himself to In persuaded in the selection of his Cabinet of ficers to appoint those who before had been affiliated with interests an tagonistic to the public welfare. Mr. Wlckereham, the Attorney General, had been the attorney of the Smiar Trust before his appointment. Ml Dickinson, the Secretary of War, had been the chief attorney of F'.. II. Harrlmail for the Illinois Cen tral Railroad. Mr. Ralllllger, Sec retary of the Interior, had been closely connected with the Qttggen hcim interest,,, Mr. Nugel, the Secretary of Commerce and Labor Is one of the attorneys of the Stand ard oil Company. "Is It any wonder thai surrounded by these advisers, without imputing their honor of bonesy at all, that Mr. Tuft was lead into one mistake after till other, and one blunder al ter tin' other, always against Un people and never for the people? "He signed the Alilrirh-l'ayni Tariff bill when he should huve ve toed it, und vetoed the wool bill and the cotton bill when he should have signed them. "He has never been really in touch with the needs and desires of the people, and it wus unreasonable to hope that his heart could beat in sympathy with the demands of hu manity." "Mr. Roosevelt, with all of his mistakes," said Mr. Polk, "has been of much service as an agitator In awakening the people of the country, but having done tlmt, hia wnr'i is ended for the present. He h:il an opportunity for seven years to do the things he now aaya he wants to do. Wilson is progreectve enough to suit the progressives of very party, und ibouid be given hia chance." He spoke regretfully of the attempt made upon Colonel Rooaevelt'e life by a demented crank, und feelingly expressed the hop.- of his rapid recovery. "A crisis has been reuched In the affairs of the nation," said Mr. Polk. "Pick up a newspaper any day and you will tint! accounts of thievery and Kraft. What doe It mean? is corruption becoming a iiatiouHl disease.' Is there some thing in our system of government that encourage! men to violate the commandment, 'Thou shall not steal?' "Is not tin- government Itoell in a large sense to blame for this leant lug general disposition'.' Has not the example which the government sets of enriching a few by taking from all by means of the protective tariff been an Influence for corrup- j Don? With the example of the na tional government giving privilege to a few, there is encouragement af forded all forms of graft, for all graft is bused upon privilege. Of ficials are not bribed to give equal richls hi at) Out to confer shim.. privilege on the few denied the i many. " The elimination of privilege la the fight confronting Democracy. The Republican and the Rooievell parties stand for the privilege of iimn protective tariii in one inriii or another. "The Democratic party stands -quarely iigaint Ibis privilege. I he Hepllbllcail idea Is In pro tect monopoly from the people. " The Democratic fdea is to pro tect the people from monopoly. 'It is unjust for ull the people to be taxed in order tlmt u few inuy profit. 'A tariff other than for revenue is merely legalized graft." 'The Republican orators," de- clared Mr. Folk, "tell the fawners that the tariff has caused the high prices of hogs and rattle, hut In the cities these same orators deny thut the turlff bus anything to do with the high price of bacon and beef. The Republican party claims credit for the high prices of farm products in the country, but denies responsi bility for the high prices of these sume food products in the city. "The truth is thut the Republican high tHrlff policy, by shutting off competition, bus aided the formation of gigantic trusts which control the prices of the necessities of life. The cost of living bus gone up Hi the average American home something like ."kl per cent In the last ten years. "This lOOreai! is going into the poi'kets of u comparatively small cluss of men, who are Hiiubleu through the tariff In exact a tax from the general public. In the cities this Increased cost of living is fell In the higher prices which the public Is paying for articles of food and clothing, and in the country the farmers and cattle breeders are discovering that although they cre ate the food stuff the prices are in the main fixed by the combining middle men. "The Heef Trust soils Amarioan meat in London for several cents a pound cheaper than here in Farm ing ton. The benefit of the Inereaee does not go to the American cattle raiser, who gets no more for the cattle that produce the meat for Farmington than he does for those (but furnish meat for London. "The doctrine of equal rights should be made a living, vital, con trolling force in government, " This doctrine opposes the priv ilege of subsidies, bounties and ull forms of government favore to few at the burden of the many. " The government has no more right to take from one man Indirect ly to add to the wealth of another, than It bus to compel one man di rectly to contribute to the fortune of another," "Tin- Democratic party i- not lighting wealth," said Mr. Folk, "but the conditions that create pov erty. It is not the enemy to enter prise, bnl on the contrary the friend to honest industry and legitimate development, All that it demands is that each man be given an equal opportunity to live und labor und enjoy the fruits of honest toil, It would sale-guard properly rights, but recognizes the tact thai property rights are best safeguarded by pre serving Inviolate the public rlghti, "The sugar Irusl revelations, the Pnst Office frauds, thelndlan steals, the Friar land scandals, the Stand ard oil exposures, 1111(1 i 1 1 II II II II' ill 1 1 le other instances of venality that have come to light in national affairs, demonatrate that the surface of tor- ruptioii has only been scratched, and that beneath there is a seething mass of political putrescence that needs the light to be turned upon it so aa to let the people know who the rascals are.

We have here given only a few of the sulient points of Governor Folk's speech, because ol lack of space, but they ure worth your time and careful thought. At the close ol his remarks a genuine ovation wus extended the Governor, showing thut he has lost none of the good feeling and high regard which our' people have long entertained for him.
