HAGAK, as a candidate for constable of .Mon roe Township, ulject to the action of the voters, at the general election Nov. 4. Every Democrat must vote Nov. 4. Our Republican f-iends do not intend to levise the tariff. Stone is the champion of the plain people. Kerens stands for the plutocrats. Which will you have for U. S. Senator? America, grand country as she is, is not good enough to bold the Filippinosas unwilling subjects. Imperialism ?s contrary to our Declatation of Independence, to the Constitution of the United States, and is dangerous to Americau liberty. The policy of the Republican party is contradictory to the Monroe Doctrine, which has been so helpful to America in maintaining her supremacy on Ibis continent. The school fund of Missouri has been honestly and capably handled by the Democrats and the (.lobe-Democrat and Repub lican .spellbinders who have been defaming Missouri know full well that what they have been saying derogatory to the fair i -one of Missouri has been said bimplv for the purpose of deceiving the voters and thus causing them to desert the parly which has done so much for the state and place the state once more in the hands of that polit ical party which has been so wasteful and extravagant with the people's property. The American people have good reason to believe that our Republican friends are not sin cere when they speak of how they are going to curb the trusts, because for several years Republicans have been in full charge ot all departments of the government and up to this time they have not done anything calculated to disturb the trusts in their Republican-given right to rob the people. Odd Fellows Day. Thursday was Odd Fellow day In Monroe County It was the day of the County re union of Odd Fellows and there were about :ioo of them present at ' Madison An excellent program of mu sic and speeches had been ar ranged. J. C. Frank made the address of welcome. This was j responded to by E M. Alexan der Rev. Campbell, of Macon, I and J. R.Reynolds, of Paris, i made addresses on the aims and objects of the order. These were all fine and the music pleased all. Those who were present felt that it was good to be there. Then in the evening the Degrees were conferred as follows: In ilia lory by Paris Lodge. First by Sbelbina Lodge. Second dy Madison Lodge. Third by Monroe City Lodge. It was decided to hold the meeting ntxt year in Monroe City and the boys are now at work preparing to make it the biggest day in the history of Men roe County Odd Fellowship. V r n I j?uemocraticopeaKing All charges regarding the looting of the school fund and other shortages is the vilest political rot and lor making these slanderous charges the Republicans should be rebutted. The way to do this is lo go to the polls on Nov. I and vote the Democratic ticket from top to bottom. Large standing armies are not needed in America. All that is needed is a small standing army in time of peace and the volun teer soldiefs will protect all the interests of the country when the hour of danger comes. Sometimes when your Uncle Samuel has to say something to foreign countries regarding their treatment of Americau citizens, th.se toreign countries have something to say to Uncle Samuel regarding his treatment of the Filipinos. Republicans are making a still hunt in Missouri and you can depend on all the votes for the Republican ticket being voted. Democrats should also all vote. The record of tile Democratic party in Missouri is one which should receive the support and appiause of every honest voter in the state. Democracy is for the prosper ity of all the people. Republi canism is for the prosperity of the few at the expense of the manv. If you favor equal rights to all and special privileges to none, you cannot support the Republican policies The only effort to injure the credit and standing of Missouri comes from Republicans. 9 Democratic Speaking. The Monroe County Demo cratic Committee met in Paris Tuesday and made assignments for public speaking. Seventeen meetings were arranged for the county. Those In this end of the county are as follows- Senatoi H. Clay Heather at Stoutsville, Oct. 27 at 7::!0 p. m. Hon James P. Boyd at Flori da Oct. 29, at 7:o0 p. m. Hon R. L. "Woodson at Indian Creek Nov. 1. at 7:30 p. m. At each of these meetings ther; will be several of the county candidates. What we want in Monroe County this year is a full vote. Hon. Perry S. Rader, one of "the ablest Missouri Democrats, spoke at tlie counc 1 room Sat Urdiiy " afternoon. Notwith standing the fact that there was a circus in the city he had a fairly good audience. He is well versed in Missouri history and is the auther of the text book on Missouri history that is used in the public schools of the State. He showed what the two great parties have done for Missouri since its admissiou into the Union, and by the rec ords proved that democracy has always stood up for the plain people in Missouri. Not so mud. can be said for our Re publican friends. He is heartily in favor of the immediate con- stm- , of the Nicaraguan U.o.,.1, because it will cause America to take rank on the high seas. His idea It for Amer ica to own the canal and allow all American vessels to pass through free and to have all foreign vessels to pay toll. Democrats have given Mis souri the lowest tax rate of any state iu the Union. Haul down the American flag from the polygamy of the Sulu Archipelago. The Democratic party is the the tax payeis friend. If a Missouri bond is good, the school fund is safe. This is the year for all' Dem ocrats to vote. Talk about wild cat money! Never in the history of the country has uch a wild cat money scheme been talked of as is the Fowler bill, which in dications are that our Republi can friends will give us. The Boone Co. (Ky.)
