Republican policies foster trusts Democrats have given to Mis souri i ie best School system of any stale in the Union. The official records show that Democrats have given to the j people the best government. Those who favor trusts, m iiODOllen ant! a government bv tit" lew are ran Its of the This is no off year in Mis souri politics. The legislature elected in November is to select the United States Senator who is to succeed Hon. G G.

Fellow Democrats, this is thej year for us all to li e up and j keep Missouri in the front rank j of the States. A careful comparison of the records of the Repu bltcan and Democratic parties In Missouri is courted by Democrats. Re publicans want no such com I ia rison Our Republican friends are not sincere when they say they ?re opposed to trusts. Had the Republicans wished to free America from trust rule tbey could have done so. In Missouri the big corpora tions now pay their just part of the taxes. They did not this under Republican rule. do N'o Republican has yet point- j ed out a single provision ill the i Missouri Election law which is I unfair or unju-t. Yet in order to delude the people they keep j howling about our election ! laws. Do the fair thing boys. Our Republicnn friends have passed siSch laws as enable the favored few to plunder and take from the masses their hard earned money. The records show that Re publicans during their six years reign in Missouri did not levy one dollar tax against railroads but collected from the people. Yes. it is true that our Repub lican friends reduced the StaU debt $14,419,908 in four years but in order to do so they used up 188,281,117 56 of State re sources. The official records show this tf) be true. Monroe County presents a strong man for Speaker of the next House of Representatives. As Speaker of the last House Mr. Whitecotton made quite a good reputation. This is the year when the people must stand up for their rights. Our Republican friends keep right on giving the rights of the masses to the trust mag nates. Vote the Democrat tick et from top to bottom. The millions of dollars paid into the State treasury by the people since the Democrats came into power In 1878 has been honestly and faithfully applied to the payment of the interest and the reduction of the great debt fastened on the peopie by Republican fraud and to giving the peopie a good economical Stale government. Before voting stop and ask yourselt whether you are in favor of paying more lor Amer- j lean made goods thau the peo- pie across the sea have to pay I for the same American made i Hon. J A. Reed in. Do your duty to your state, your country, your family and go out and vote the Democrat ticket from top to bottom. Do not be satisfied With this but see that your neighbor votes. An Important Election Every Democrat should know the reason why this is a more important election than those which have preceded it, and for this purpose is this editorial written. The Republican ringsters of the state of Missouri have been lying about the conditions and affairs of the state for nearly j three years, in fact they have i done so since they were voted ' out of power over thirty years! ago. But their appetite for office has caused them to renew their attack with increased en ergy and they have fur the past two years with malice a fore thought, maligned and traduc- I ed the name of the state of Mis j sauri. with all the bitterness at j tneir command, anu none so -without regard to truth or the I effect it will have on the state j abroa J. Now for the Democrats to al- I , low their indifference to cause I this county and state to go Re-! publican would be anacknowl-j edgement that all they haveac- i cused us of is true and that we turn this state over to them to plunder as they did the city of St. Louis and other states and municipalities which they have governed for the past quarter of a century. Not having any regard for the truth and by a concerted effort through their newspapers and public oratois they have exerted every nerve to muke the people believe tha the school funds of the state have been looted and that the public moneys have been squandered which is all a lie and they know it is a lie when' they as sert it. For this reason, if no other. Ute Democrats of the stui ...iu county ought to turn out .u number a ad bury them so deep with an ava ancne of votes that at the last bugle call they will be so deeply in terred that not one of them will rise out of his grave to ory "Poor old Missouri."
