writing we have yet to find a paper in
thia state that has found aught to say
•gainat Mr. Vesaey as a citizen. He
ia act an extremist. On the contrary
1m is a level-headed, conservative
saw man. In his own county
he has
made good in any position in which bis
neighbors have placed him, and if be

will make a splendid governor.

Wateitown, Oct. 6. -A big rally was
held at the opera house limt evening by
the rcupblcans. who had gathered from
many portions of the state to greet
Governor Hughes this morning. At
torney George W. Case faced a very
large audience when he called the
meeting to arder and introduced Con
gressman E. VV. Martin, who made the
piincijHil speech of the evening. Ml.
Martin discussed the issues of the cau
naign in a forceful way and made an
evident imprenMiou on the audience.
He wan followed oy Governor Craw
ford, who tnged all republicans to vot®
the ticket straight, and who denounced
the democratic leaders with great
vigor. The governor was well receiv
ed. He compared the expenses of the
state with the expenses ten years ago
and showed how much more there was
to do. bow much grater was the de
mand and ability to pay and de
nounced the democrats as raising an
unfair issue.
Senator Veaaey was the next speak
er. He told a numlx«r of jolly stories
and said that he had rather spend the
the rest of his days in private life than
to win his election by promising im
possibilities. Senator N'essey made a
distinctly good impression by bis grasp
of business problems and by his evi
dent sincerity of purpose.
C. Day of the Argns Leader, who
was on the platform, but not on the
list of speakers, was called oat by
Chairman Case aud responded with
btief remarks which were directed to
national isHnes.
Senator Gamble made an effective
speech in closing the rally.
All the outside guests were tnen in
vited to an informal luncheon which
was followed by a siuokei where stories
were told and experiences exchanged.
Mauy of the representatives from the
various counties reported a fine outlook
for republican success.
Makea Exceptional Record in

Hot Springs, Oct. An exceptional
record has been made by J. C. John

made false reports of the bank's condi

Receiver Johnson now has notified
the depostors that a final dividend has
been paid oy the comptroller of the
currency us fast as the necessary re

presented. This final dividend will
pay each claim iu full, together with
interest to date of the final payment.
After the bank closed its doors
many of the depositors feared they
never would recover a cent of their
deposits and many otners had given
up all hope of ever receiving a penny
of their earnings of years, which had
l)een deposited in the failed bank.
Their delight upon being notified that
final payment now will be made
them, and that they also will receive
interest upon their deposits daring

the plan to restrict the height of
