Tin- trusts are tnocracy oeeause lighting D it is a well known tact that Democratic success means that trusts must stop robbing tin- people as the people will be in charge of the government. If our Republican friends de sired to do anything to relieve the people from the oppression of trusts they should try the efficacy of the Sherman Ami trust law. The Philippine policy of our Repub lean friends is contrary to the spirit ol the Declaration of Independence, to the Ameri can Constitution and tramples on liberty. If you are opposed to giving national banks the power to is sue and control the volume of paper money for their own ben efit you are opposed to some thing that is favored by the Republicans at Washington.

We have been frecjuently told by our Republican friends that the financial question is settled but a dangerous bill (known as the Fowler bill) has been intro duced and lias the support of the friends of the Republican party. This bill takes away more of the rights of the plain people and gives them to the National bankers. How many people who com plain of the high prices of com modities, stop to consider that the tariff makes high prices it shuts out competition, and that Republican extrava gance makes necesssary a high er tariff because immense cus tom receipts are needed to meet the disbursements of billion dollar congresses. Conrier. Trusts set the price at which farmers must sell their pro ducts and these same 'rusts make the price which farmers must pay lor what they use. Every man who loves the cause of liberty and human rights should on the 4th day of November vote the Democratic ticket. Do you love liberty'-' II so you must continue to work for it. The great trusts are work ing to take it from you. These are all able speakers and will discuss the great questions now before the people, hvery voter ii should hear them.

Our Monroe County Republi cans met at Paris on Sept. 27, and nominated a county ticket. Through an oversight the ticket was not published in the Dkmo cuat last week.
