Editor Farmington Times: My Dear Sir, I have before me a copy of your issue of September 22, of The Farmington Times, sent me by a relative, and as I read it. I couldn't help but think, yea see, the wonderful improvement, in the quality and quantity of your paper over the old days when I knew it. I was born and raised in Farm ington but drifted away drifting Hoosierward. I live in a city of ten thousand, but we haven't a paoer that can come up with the papers in my old home town, Farmington. Seymour and Jackson county, like the State (and all States for that matter) is Democratic, and will be on election day and after. The State papers give the State to Hughes. Sor ry we haven't a good Stnte Demo cratic paper. Charliehousc Fairbanks owns the largest paper in the State, and of course he, or they, give the Democrats a wide berth. Politically, this is some battle ground, but the Democrats are well organized and we will help pile up the big majority for Woodrow. I of course want to see old Mis souri go that way and especially the 13th Congressional district. Inclosed you will find $1.00 for which you will please send me your paper for one year. Yours itrulv, E. C. McMULLIN. On his Western trip Mr. Hughes found the best way to get applause from his fellow partisans was to mention his mentor, T. R. If the Adumson 8-hour bill is as bad as candidate Hughes says it is, why didnt some Republican Sena tor talk it to death? Any one of them could have done so under the rules of the Senate. A former United Slates Senator from North Dakota, H. C. Hans brough, a Republican, has left the party and will work for the re-election of President Wilson. Hans brough had heard Hughes speak. 'Nough said. The success of President Wilson in procuring the eight-hour law, which met all the demands of the labor peo ple and which averted a strike, which meant ruin and starvation to millions, does not meet the approval of Wall street, nor the railroad magnates. Does it meet the wishes of the labor ing people? If it does, they will show their approval and appreciation by voting the entire Democratic tick et in November, and from all reports and our knowledge of these people, we are convinced they will vote the Dm ocratic ticket, straight from top to bottom.
