IS HANNA FRIENDLY TO ORGANIZED LABOR? It has been rumored umong the voters of Clovis and Curry County that Hon. U. H. Hanna, s$ 'lemncratic nominee for U. S.

The matter was thi n thorough- lv investigated by members of the various labor unions, and it was found that he was entirely friendly to them. The Republi- 4 cans well know Mr. Bursum's in- timiite connection with the large corporate interests in the state. Will they please publish such record covering the past several yenrs? It will doubtless bo of great interest. Democrats CLUB CONTESTS TO BE HELD IN CLOV1S Thi' New Mexico Club Stock Judg ing Contest mill Demonstration Con tot is to be held in Clovis Octobei 28.
