tics now.

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

olas wrote to Mr. Martin's old home
in lowa to know what his reputation

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.

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,
