Vote “Against.” A Few Good Laws Only and a Mass of Rubbish Makes It Safest to Vote “No/’ The vicious possibilities of the shyster reformers who pester the peo ple of this state are shown in the host of bills which the voters will have to settle one way or the other Tuesday. Remember this —you risk much if you fail to vote on them, for their supporters will vote on them. Vote. NO. That is the best general rule. Then picjc out the few that de serve to pass. Do not try to remem ber them one by one, but pick out the few you wish to support and then con scientiously go down the list and vote against all the rest. The last one on the ballot is the best one of those on which to vote Yes. It is to iinance the tunnel to be the state’s gateway to the West. Mark it well. Then remember the Immigration bill and the Highway bill. These deserve the support of the people. But remember the general rule is vote No. This state ought not be the experimental station for every sort of rattle-brained reformer, who is himself a failure and wants com pany. Most of all, vote against the dangerous amendment which destroys constitutional law. DRIVEN OUT OF STATE. That’s what the law proposed by .

BEST REPRESENTATION EVER GIVEN IN DENVER. Read the Record of Judge Whitford, When in Charge of the Repub lican Party. Whatever colored voters think of other candidates on the several tick ets, they should be of one opinion con cerning Judge Greeley W. Whitford, who is a candidate for re-election as district judge. Before his election six years ago he was county chairman of the Republican party and was respon sible more than any other one man for the unprecedented representation accorded colored voters as a result of the election that fall. It will be re- membered that we received four rep resentative places that time, one in the assessor’s office, one in the treas urer’s, one in the sheriff’s and one in the county clerk’s. This was all in addition to janitorships, which were ■several. Let each voter consider what this kind of consideration for our race lfteans; let him compare it with what has been given since under the Demo crats and now under the citizens. Then it can be seen clearly that Judge Greeley \Y. Whitford is entitled to the vote of every colored person, regard less of party, had he no other good qualifications. Hut it happens that he has also been the man who has tried civil rights cases, and the decisions in them were according to the law. and sustained us in our rights. Do not treat his cause lightly, for our friends are too few for us to neglecL any one of them. He is a Republican nominee. CARLES C.

Gentlemen: I 7/ant to gf vp you a short history of my condition so that others who have the same trouble I had may know there is a cure for rheumatism. In July, 1909, I noticed that I had in flammatory rheumatism. In health 1 had weighed 152 pounds; I dropped to 120 pounds. After being confined to the bed for two and a half months a friend recommended Bates’ Twen tieth Century Wonder Powder. In the summer of 1910 I began to take it. At this time, April, 1911, I have been well and robust for five months. My appetite is good and my weight is 140 pounds and not a trace of the old trouble remains. I have taken six bottles of the Twentieth Century Wonder Powder. If you want to re fer anyone to me I will gladly ex press the merits of this medicine. Yotirs truly, A. J. LYLES, Sold by J. J.
