It’s A Big Job No presideot since Lincoln lias had to handle such com plex problems as President Wil son lias been confronted with. Ho lias kept you out of war. He stopped tlie railroad strike. Fi nancial. agricultural and labor legislation of Ills administration stand as a great monument to work well done. I)o you want to make a change? Let Him Finish It. POLITICAL POINTERS Judge Ed Taylor by the work he HAS DONE. EVERYBODY should vote for FRANK DELANEY. Everything indicates a Wilson land slide in the Middle West. The Golden Special to the Golden West somehow failed to bring back any Golden Votes. Vote for the Western Slope Deuio* cratic candidates —Wheeler, Pulliam, Leekenby and Hubbard. Sam Wheeler of Grand Junction will make you a splendid Justice of tlie State Supreme Court. All they say boils down to this: “Mull Fella Citizens, put the other fellas out and put ME in.” In “working both sides of the street” Hughes is now declaring for peace and Roosevelt is howling for war. Wall street wants that desk back in the Treasurydepartmentat Washing ton—but tlie American people don’t. Victor Murdock, the famous Kan sas Hull-Mooser, is out for Wilson. Tills places Kansas in tlie Wilson column. Candidate Baird overlooked telling; his audience how he was going tb carry Ed Taylor’s hoirie precinct: town and county. The Chicago Herald, Independent has Anally come out for Wilson. This siiows whicli way the political wind is blowing in Illinois. There is a great car shortage. This is because the commerce of the coun try lias become so heavy—not because of tlie weigiit of Hughes’ speeches. The most enthusiastic Republicans are tlie multi-millionaires who hope to have tlie income tax repealed as tlie Republican platform promises. If Standard Oil stock is entitled to go to $2,000 on tlie war boom what the farmers can’t understand is why there should be such an outcry against IB cent cotton and $9 flour. Among the inducements Carlson is offering Republican “workers” is tlie promise to “fire” State Highway Commissioner Tom Ehrhart. Wlmt do you think of it, good roads people? Cotton is selling for only a little more than a penny an ounce, although Col. Roosevelt has sometimes been paid as much as a dollar a word for stuff much lighter and not so wtiite. Says Solomons Proverbs, “When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice.” The United States finds that tiiis is so, and they are go ing to keep on rejoicing, four years more. I call your attention to tlie fact that there is nowhere recorded a single Wilson policy. Everything that I have asked Congress to do was written in tlie pledges of the party itself.— Woodrow Wilson. —% The Republicans are actually mad because of our great national prosper ity, and try to show that Wilson had nothing to do witli it. But for the Wilson Federal Reserve Act we would have had a great financial panic. But now tlie currency is "elastic” and we will never see another financial panic. The New York Herald which is supposed to be independent is sup porting Hughes. It is taking a large poll of "straw votes” and those votes show Wilson leading in more than ! enough doubtful states to elect him. So the Herald is trying to explain that "straw votes" are n t infallible. No they are not infallible, but Wilson i is invincible. f • • ■ • - An ounce of personal enthusiasm in business is worth a pound of en forced effort. Many of us are too readY to judge by report, and by so doing often jump to unjust and erroneous conclusion*. Taylor and Baird Compared Two years ago Mr. Hairtl had both the Republican and Progressive nom inations and was very sanguine of his election. In fact,he was very emphat ic and boasted a great deal about how badly he was going to defeat Taylor. He was especially positive in assert ing that he was going to carry Gar field county, where Taylor has lived for nearly thirty years, and where the people have known him from boyhood. He said: “A man should be judged by the way lie stands among his neigh bors and old acquaintances.and when a man's own county and town repud iates him, certainly no other county can be expected to take him up. I have lived," be said. "In Delta coun ty for over ten years and the people know me, and you just watch the election returns from Delta and Gar field counties." Delta is a strong Republican county. The Republican candidate for govern or, Carlson, received a majority of 1,- 028 in that county at the election two years ago and nearly all of the Repub lican county ticket was elected. Gar field county is exceedingly independ ent; at that election it gave Carlson 880 majority, and the Republicans elected the sheriff, treasurer, repre sentative and county commissioner. The vote on Haird and Taylor was as follows: Delta county, Baird's precinct— Tav lor 3IU JBalrd lew Taylor's majority hi In the city of Delta— Taylor .... 800 Halnl »»8 Taylor 1 't majority III In Delta county — Taylor 8 JOT JHalrd Itt® Taylor’a majority . Its Garfield county, Taylor’s precinct— Taylor 8*W Baird Taylor's majority 808 In Glen wood Springs— Taylor Hill laird -’ll Taylor's majority «r_» In Garfield county— Taylor 8804 JUIrtl W» Taylor's majority l:«l We agree with Mr. Baird that a man should be judged by his standing among his neighbors, and that when “a man's home precinct and his home town and his home county repudiate him overwhelmingly certainly no oth er county can reasonably be expected to take him up.” Mesa county lies between Delta anti Garfield counties, and both Baird and Taylor are well known in it. Baird practically made his headquarters there as now. and exhaustively cam paigned it. Mesa county ordinarily is a Republican stronghold and gave Carlson a plurality of 541, and elected inostof the Republican ticket. It gave Taylor a majority of 1,598. The neigh boring county of Montrose, where Baird is very well known, grfve Carl son a majority of 915, elected a mixed ticket and gave Taylor a majority of 787; inakingTaylor’s majority in those four counties 4.112, while Carlson's majority was 2,859. In fact, Baird was badly beaten in every one of the twen ty-three counties of the Fourth Con gressional district, in many of them by more than two to one, Taylor’s majority being 11,547. And yet in face of that vote Baird has the nerve to run again against Taylor. Nobody wants him, or takes him seriously, but himself. He has no qualifications whatever for the office; and Kd Taylor will be re-elected by more than a two-to-one vote. Hut in view of his splendid record of benefi cial accomplishments he ought to be re-elected unanimously. —Last issue Steamboat Pilot. Vote NO on the Herd Law measure.
