MONROE Volume XXVII. Monroe City, Mo., October 15, 1914. Number 28.. 500 Pony Contest Votes for Every $ Paid Us On Subscription PRESIDENT WILSON "Wants Missouri's Splendid Demo cratic Delegation In Congress Returned Interest of the Country Will Be Best Served. President U. S. Hall of Pritchett College, Glasgow, Missouri, in open ing the 7th District Congressional campaign in Saline County ut Mar shall, delivered a speech of the strongest endorsement of Piesident Wilson and his policies, particular ly his peace policy, that has been heard in Missouri this year. Presi dent Hall also was strong in his terms of endorsement of the Demo cratic delegation in Congress and of Senator William J. Stone in the Senate, all of which had stood by the President in his endeavors to carry out the Democratic program. President Hall said in closing: "The most important matter for every citizen of Missouri to consid er at present is the standing of its members of Congress on the Com mittees in the House and Senate. "While the European war is be ing waged, and while the unsettled condition exists between our gov ernment and foreign nations the most important committee of the Senate, yes, more important than all of the other committees com bined is. what is known as the "Committee on Foreign Relations" of the Unitfiji States Senate. -This is the committee that on one side comes in direct contact with the ' President of the United States and the Secretary of State, and on the other side comes in direct contact with all foreign nations and with their Ambassadors and Ministers. It is absolutely essential that a man of great experience and a man who is a true and devoted friend of the President should head that Com mittee. ' The Chairman of that great Committee is now the Hon. William J. Stone who is a candidate for re election, and for whom, or against whom, every voter in Missouri will cast his vote this fall. Senator Stone has firmly and inflexibly held up the hands of President Wilson in all of his efforts. "Can any thoughtful patriot at this time justify himself, or square himself with his own conscience and cast a vote against a man who has had twenty years experience in Congress and who is closer to the President of the United States than any other Senator in the Senate, and who serves and aids the Presi dent more than any other Senator? I believe that you will agree with me that you ought to know what ' President Wilson's wishes are upon that question. I therefore wrote him a letter, asking concerning his desires upon the successor of Sena tor Stone, and I shall read his re ply." The White House. Washington, Sept 19, 1914. My Dear President Hall: I have your letter of August 29th and 1 am very much interested to hear that you are to make the opening address for our party in the Congressional campaign. You were kind enough to write me "Concern ing my desires" I am not sure that I know just what you mean, but I am sure that I desire most earnest ly the return of the Missouri dele gation to Congress, and that my in trrest in Senator Stone's campaign is very deep indeed. He has stood j a 7ySl ' EMPEROFTOF GERMANY Thle la a new photograph of the Emperor of Germany In full uniform. by the administration in the most generous and admirable way," and has earned my gratitude and ad miration. Cordially and Sincerely Yours, WOODROW WILSON. To Pres. U. S. Hall. Pritchett Col lege. Glasgow, Mo. "Now Fellow Countrymen, am I asking too much when I ask every patriot in thit State, irrespective of former political affiliations to grant Pres. Wilson's request and send back to the United States Senate the va' uable adviser, friend and supporter of the President instead of the ob scure, but I dare say most excellent gentleman wholly without parli mehtary experiences, and without influence in Congress, whom the Republicans have put up against Senator Stone?"
