M. LOGAN Who can doubt that if Lincoln and Jefferson were alive they would vote for Wm. J. Bryan? No one at all familiar with their political history. While the newspapers of both parties are calling attention to what they call the apathy of voters, other columns convey the information that everywhere over the state the registration is heavy. This shows that the failure of voters to rend their underwear and the atmosphere in mad en thusiasm, they propose to vote and that is what counts. People this year are doing some heavy thinking for themselves and are not following processions. Quite a significant cartoon ap peared in the Sunday Pueblo Chieftain. An elephant with a cap inscribed “G O. P.” holds a large key marked "Prosperity.” Under the cartoon is the legend "The Elephant holds the key to prosperity, and if you give tlie signal on November 3, he will un lock Good Times.” Well now, isn't that refreshing? Are we to infer that the elephant locked up Good Times last October and proposes to keep them locked un less Taft is elected? What other inference can be drawn? While on his southern tour, Mr. laft plainly told the people 1 1> I lie souih that th-y could ex [ peci nothing from national legis lation unt'l they got t) voting the republican ticket. That was very nice. It was a confession that a republican adm n stration is not tor the whole people but only tor those who vote tor it. Since when has the machinery o: government become the private property of any political party? We had sup posed that the national govern ment should be administered for the benefit of the entire country. But Mr. Taft told the truth so tar as his own party is concerned. IHE cr< wd which greeted Mr. Hr> an at Denver last Friday is conceded to have been the largest ever assembled in that city, yet the Denver Republican says it was assembled largely from curi osity to see Bryan Queer isn’t it? Probably two-thirds of the people there had seen Bryan be fore, many of them several times Why then such a scramble merely to see him again? The Republican must be out of ammunition. A RECEPTION was given to Jesse Ja excuse us we mean Jesse McDonald, on the occasion of his visit last Monday. Thirteen people turned out to say hello to the man who retained Alva Adams’ stolen seat foul years ago. We might add that someway we are sort of impelled to call Mr. McDonald Jesse James, though we recognize the unfairnes to Mr James. He at least did his own stealing Did Jesse McDonald resign when he found himself in poses sion of a stolen office? all, he held on to it. When John Shatroth found that fraud had been committed which rendered his title to a seat in corgres* doubtful, he resigned. Both these men are asking the people to elect them to be governor of 'the state. It ought not to be difficult for any honest man to make a choice. The big republican papers should get together. The Pueblo Chieftain scores Bryan for put ting his old-time friend, in the background for the Spcer-Evans gang, while the Denver Kepubli can scores him for an attempt to put Patterson in the foreground. Evidently Bryan’s visit to Denver did not please these papers, but they ought to agree on the lies they will tell about it. One of the amusing pranks of the republican papers is their varying attitude towatd T. M. Patterson. One day they pat him on the back and say he is the leading democrat of the state, the next they jump on him with both feet and insist that he has been discredited and repudiated. It all depends on what Mr. Patterson has said or done as a basis for the comment. The impudent falsehood that trusts and monopolies cheapen products and benefit the con sumer is by the fact that the price of commodities controlled by these monsters has been arbitrarily increased for no cause except to pay dividends on fictitious capital by methods that make larceny respectable.— Ex-Senator John J. Ingalls. The Pueblo Chieftain editorial writer should study up a little. In the Sunday edition referring to Bryan’s trip to Colorado, said of it "a state that has only three electoral votes anyhow.” When did the state lose the other two? "HE BANKS ARE FOR THE PEOPLE—NOT THE PEOPLE FOR THE BANKS." The Gun<i Junction News counsels Mr. Br.au to "Read the story of Absaloman, ’ but fails to cite the book aid chapter. By the way who is “Absaloman’’ any how ? Leslie M. Shaw, former secre tary of the treasury in an inter view August 12, 1903: *lt is all nonsense to talk about a revision of the tariff. It can not be done. You may as well tfltvN. island that at the outset. Republicans who are demanding revision are de minding the impossible.” Moke than two dollars ol every five raised by the federal govern ment goes for the support of the army and navy. Representative Burton, iii a speech in congress, said: "In no country has the in crease in military expenses been so marked as in our own ” The man who labors f<*ots the bill! Today we are t icing problems greater than we have t ad to meet since th • civil wtr.

This is not socialism —Chas. B. Ward Bank Deposit Guarantee. The bill introduced by the chairman of the house committee on banking and currency in Janu ary last (reported by the com mittee February 20) provided that the banks should deposit with the treasury 5 per cent of their note issues and deposits, creating a fund "to guarantee the payment of all individual depos its, bank notes, bank deposits and government deposits without dis crimination or preference. "The bill was recommended by such eminent financial authorities as Horace White and Lyman J. Gage, secretary of the treasury under McKinley. Defending the deposit-insur ance feature. Chairman howler urged that the public character of banks was recognized by govern ment supervision of them, and many people ignorantly supposed a national bank must be safe be cause the government stood be hind it. "I assert,” he wrote, "that government supervision, state or national, should be with drawn and the public left to the terrific school of experience; or that the gsvernment should com pletely perform its work and im pose such obligations upon the banks as will truly justify' the confidence the people have in these quasi-public institutions.” All this, of course, is recent history— to which we refer merely because a good many enthusiastic Republican organs are citing de posit insurance as an example of the Democratic mind’s peculiar liability to insanity'.—Saturday Evening Post. Gov. Adams' Father Dead In California. John Adams, father of . the Adams brothers, well known in this state, died Sunday at his home in Pasadena, Cal., after a long illness The death had been expected, tor old age had worn upon Mr. Adams' rugged consti tution until tlie machim ry was about used up He was in his ninetieth year, having been born in Kentucky that many years ago Later he liver! in Wisconsin, and about IS years ag » moved to Wis consin He was married (13 >c»rs ago Though n v« r a irsidcnt of Colorado he had visited here a number > f times, th li**i being 12 years ago, when h»s son Aiva was inaugurated governor of the state. Mrs Adams, four *»ons and a daughter su»vive. The sons are Frank, tor \ears at the head of ihe Denver fire and police board; William, state senator; John, a' well known ranchman, and Alva, twice governor of the state. A Republican Confession Defi. The Chicago Jntcr Ocean, a republican paper, in its issue ol October 7, printed an editorial from which the following is ’aken: "Judge Parker let out a whoop at Baltimore on Monday over the $1,00,000 that the republican national committee received from the Standard Oil company—and did not return —in the Roosevelt campaign of 1904. "As a matter of fact, the re publican campaign fund got SIOO,- 000 from the Standard Oil com pany, as in 1890 it got $50,000 from the New York Life Insur ancc company and in 1904 £200,- 000 from E. H. Harriman. What of it? "The only questionable feature of these transactions is that in 1904 the country was given Mr. Roosevelt’s wortl of honor that his campaign fund had not re ceived contributions from large corpoiations, when, in fact, it had. However, that is Mr. Roosevelt’s affair, not the party’s. "Otherwise, what of it? What effect did these contributions have except to promote the political education of the public?” Commercial Printing. Of every sort and kind prompt ly turned out at this office.

Booster is probably' one of the most in teresting men of the age and it was a fortunate day' for Colorado when he traveled west. In appearance Mr. Booster is built on a large plan, reminding one a little of Taft. He has a loud, cheerful laugh, a cordial handshake and he fairly radiates enthusiasm. When Booster is tor a thing—his opponent might as well give up. That is the reason why he lias met with such remarkable success. His enemies call him a "hot air merchant”— but his kind of hot air runs a steam engine. Booster has settled himself on what was orcc a hotel on 17th street. Although the place still retains the name "The Albany” —it is now Booster's home. Booster himself is a regular hu man "Welcome”—and anybody' who is a friend of his rushes right from the depot to the Al bany. It doesent make any dif ference what time of day or night it is the traveler can begin busi ness at Boosters. His interest is Booster’s interest. His scheme is Booster’s scheme and before he has half unfolded it, the thing is as good as accomplished. "Good” says Booster, slapping him on the back. Then he hears the real Booster laugh and if he has doubted it for a second, he regains his belief in himself and his success. Just because every body’s business is Booster’s busi ness, there is more going on at his place—The Albany—than there is any place else »n the state. There is not a part of Colorado’ that isn’t feeling the influence of Booster. Booster is as necessary to business as the Colorado sun to the climate. He i« the "Man Behind” the forgotten man sometimes per haps, but the man that does the work. If you arc looking for success— B A Booster, Albany- Hotel, Denver, Colorado. Boulder Bankers and Bryan. George R Williamson, as pres ident of the Buuldcr National b»nk. like William H. Allison, president of the First National bank, James C. Hankins, manag mg director ol the National State bank and Ilouston Jones, cashier of the Mercantile bank of this city, believe firmly in the efficacy of Mr. Bryan’s plan to prevent panics by government and state guaranties of deposits Mr. Wil liamson has attested his faith in Bryan by contributing S2OO to the Bryan campaign fund, for which eastern bankers give not a cent. Eastern bankers don’t want bank ing so safe that our Western bankers will not have to rely upon them as reserve agents. \\ hat they want is a continuance of the plan which requires large reserves—reserves enabling spec ulation in Wall street and finally the over-speculation which results in panics. Bryan proposes to stop panics and prevent closing of factories and business stagnation. Taft says 'Let good enough alone.” We admit that conditions have been good enough for Taft who has held office ever since he was twenty-six years old. But times arc not good enough for those 200,003 idle men in New York who asked him how labor could be provided for their hands. To them, he said: "God knows, don t Bryan plcrds for poor and rich alike and his plea finds echo in the West where people arc not wedded to their idols and know and love and esteem their Ilryan,— Camera.
