Vote for Harrison and Morton and Protection. The question now is, what will be the republican majority. After next Tuesday people will pet down to business. It is all poli tics now. See that the initials of your candi dates are correct before you cast your vote. Cahill might show himself a man by moving to make Marlin’s election unanimous. New moon this evening, Grover will probably forget and see it over his left shoulder. Let every republican voter see that the name of D. C. Bailey for state senator is on his ticket. Next Saturday we can announce ! the election of Benjamin Harrison as president of the United .States. '■ A Snyde show was egged at La Junta last week. It must be the outfit that tried to show here a short time ago. The democrats are desperate in their efforts to elect Cahill and are telling everything and anything to catch votes. Stand by the Grand Old Party with your votes next Tuesday, and j lend protection to every poor man iu • the United States. Tom Patterson hopes to break in to the republican ranks enough to be elected governor. Republicans see that he is defeated. “Tippecanoe” Harrison was the candidate of the party that advocated $2 a day and roast beef for the work ingman. History is repeating itself. The Granada Expouont published j at Lytle’s home, says: “Hon. D. C. j llailcy has no opposition for 6tatc j senator,” where is Mr. Lytle anyhow, i js h« lq*t. The rejH)rts circulated and publish ed statements by democrats and dem ocrat papers of this county about the dishonesty of J. D. Martin republi can candidate for county commis sioner, was fully denied bv all the gentlemen here from lowa old neigh bors of Mr. Martin, but to bave fur ther proof that the stories told bv the democrats was untrue, Mr. Nidi olas wrote to Mr. Martin's old home in lowa to know what his reputation was there and below we publish the reply: Corning, lowa, Oct. 2D, 1338. A M. Nicholas, E><.>, Lamar, Colorado, Dear Sin: Your letter addressed to \Y. B. McLaughlin, relative to reports that J. D. Martin late of this county, but now of your state and your candidate for county commissioner, “has been guilty of defrauding soldiers, widows, orphans, etc., while in this county.” We desire to state that there is no ! truth whatever in such a charge amt no such charge has ever been attach ed to the name of Mr. Martin here. Mr. Martin has always occupied a high position, for honesty, integrity and moral worth in this county' dur ing a residence here of upward of 15 years. Mr. Marliu has been sheriff of this county also been county bridge com missioner aud held other prominent positions of trust while here. You are at liberty to make such use as you see fit of this lettter. Yours truly,* | W. 11. McLaughlin, Clerk Dist. Court, j L. M. Stanley, County Auditor, i F. L. La Rue, County Treasurer, W. C, Chubb, Kx-County Auditor, A. B. Shaw, Ed. Adams County Union, Burg Brown, County Att’y, M. M. Parkinson, County Rec’d. Do not believe stories told at this late day against the character of J. D. Martin, remember in their desper ation to elect Cahill the vilest slan ders may he circulated. r—r i The Republican party’s standard bearer has behind him a vital princi ple, and that vital principle has be hind it a grand man. No wonder the Democrats are rattled. This isn’t the time to crow, just because the enemy i» scared and on the run. What you see only proves that our cause is right, and that is the time for more hard work. During the Thurman and Carlisle speaking at Lima, Ohio, last Satur day, British flags were floated from the court house in that city. How do the voters of this country like that. From every section of the coon try come loud complaints about the wretched mail service. The best mail service the country ever had was under republican rule. Isn’t it time to return to the old method? ====== The democrats hope to elect Cahill j by the Las Animas and La Junta' vote. Farmers see that J. D. Martin j is on your ticket for county eoranm- j j sioner you have the power to elect ; him. Mr. Martin is a farmer and | should have the solid farmer support. | I The democrat papers are demand- j ! ing of all democrats that they yote | j their ticket without a scratch, and i then invite the republicans to assist them on at least a part of their ticket, i Well the republicans will just stick to their own ticket, which we believe means victory. Harrison is a clean, pure, truo man. ] So is Morion. Not a breath of scan- ; dal has touched or can touch the charater of either. If moral mtegri- ! tv in all tlie relations of life is an ex- ; cellervt thing in the • President and j Vice-President of a Christian nation, j elect these men for the sake of their I example. William Henry Harrison, the I grandfather of the republican candi- ! date, believed in protection, and showed his faith by his works. The wool of the suit of clothes in which he was inaugurated was grown in Ilopkinton, N. 11., and manufactured into cloth by the Middlesex Corpora tion, at Lowell, Mass. lie believed that America should protect Ameri can industries, and go does his grand son, p.
