Cone to the Front.
The voters of this congressional
district will remember how bashful
Hon. Ernest W. Pollard was when the
people asked him to return a certain
sum to the United States treasury that
they beleived he had accepted and was
not entitled to. It required a great
deal of hard persuasion to induce him
to reimburse Uncle Sam. All the time
the question was being discussed Pol
lard kept his mouth closed tighter than
a clam in high water.
Now there is another question con
cerning which Pollard is equally ret
icent and that is whether he would favor
the re-election of Cannon as speaker of
the house. All over the country the
people are demanding that Cannon be
defeated and many congressmen are
compelled to tell whether they will sup
port the great obstructionist or not.
Of Cannon's few pets, Pollard was
the m-st favored. It would look like
rani gratitude for Pollard to desert
him .v. But the people of this dis
trict not want Cannon and will not
stano rhim. No one knows this better
thai ; 'Hard, and that is the reason
why v is keeping hi3 mouth shut.

An old republican of Cass county who
never voted any other than the repub-
...;..... ..f 1 ,,i ,, .1,,-.
to vote for illiam Jennings Bryan this
time, says: "The best evidence that
Taft is going to lose out is the fac t that
the republican managers, assisted by
the President of the United States, are
resorting to all manner of abuse and
false statements in this campaign."
The old gentleman is right, and there
are many other republicans in Cass
county who look at the matter in the
W. (J. Ram.-ey, the democratic candi
date for county attorney, is a Cass county
production. His parents, Mr. and Mrs.
R. S. Ramsey, are pioneer residents
and grew up with the country. Rilly
was born and reared in the county,
educated in the High school of I'latts
mouth, and graduated from the law
department of the state university with
highest of honors. For honesty, in
tegrity, morality and every other qual
ity that goes to make up a model young
man, is embodied in Rilly Ramsey. As
a lawyer he will rank with the ablest
young men in the state. When you
vote for him on the Third clay of Nov
ember, you can do so with a clear con
science that you have voted for one
who will fill the office of county attorney
with credit to himself, to his friends
and the people of Cass county generally.
Governor Haskell did a magnanim
ous thing when he resigned as treasurer
of the democratic national committee.
While absolutely innocent of charges
that have been made against hirr by
mud-slinging Republicans, and confident
of his ability to prove his innocence,
yet he would not have the party em
barrassed in the slightest by giving the
Republicans an opportunity to shift the
real issues. His resignation was not
necessary, nor was it asked by either
the Democratic leaders or the Demo
cratic press. That he will prove his
innocence ar.cl confound his traducers
goes without saying, and he will do it
alov.e and sir.glehanded, as an individual
' and not as a part of tne Democratic
j organization. Mr. Roosevelt stepped
a live wire when he accused Gov-
e"-nor itasiceu 01 being in tne employ
of Stm.iiard Oil, and he will find it out
to the 1 est of many votes his candidate
might otherwise have gotten. The
American eople love fair play and a
square rie-.!. ar.d it is very apparent
that Govorr.fr Haskell has r.ot been
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, one of
Mr. Joseph Pulitzer's newspapers,
summarizes the democratic case against
the Roosevelt adminstration as follows:
"1. It has been extravagant and
"2. It has attempted to popularize
"3. It' has gloried in Philippine im
perialism. "4. It has menaced the states with
federal usurpation by means of con
"5. It has recklessly undermined
confidence in our business methods,
causing panic, depression and suffering.
"6. It has profited by the political
contributions of corporations seeking
"7. It has spoken vociferously
against the malefactors of great wealth,
but it has not brought one of them to
"8. It has bullied congress, threat
ening to do as it pleased, law or no law.
"9. It has assailed the courts when
their judgments were contrary to its
"10. It has maintained the highest
tariff ever known in a free country, and
has made no move in favor of income
and inheritance taxes.
"11. It has constantly demanded
law and more law for the prosecution
of trusts, although existing laws are
held by it to be too drastic for enforce
"12. It is now attempting to round
out a career of willfulness, greed, am
bition and tyranny by forcing the elec
tion of a personally excellent and
I amiable proxy."
These are legitimate issues; they are
timely issues; they are democratic
issues. As the opposition candidate it
becomes Mr. Bryan's privilege and duty
to present them with all the skill and
ability at his command.
His opportunity lies in an appeal to
j democrats anil to that great element
! in the electorate that is tired of ex
travagance and of militarism, of im-
perialism, of Rough Riderism, of cen
tra'.ization, of personal government, of
! big stick admistrat ion and partnership
with predatory plutocracy.
Ret Mr. Taft be the proxy. Ret Mr.
Taft be heir to "My Policies." Rut let
Mr. Rryan be the democratic candidate
for president of the United States.
A Large Number of Friends Spend a
Cay at the Palatial Heme of Mr.
and Mrs. Edward Tritsch.
Sunday Mr. and Mrs. Rd. Tritsch
it their elegant home west of the city
entertained a large crowd of their many
friends. The guests included many
from this city as well as those who
lived in the near neighborhood of the
hospitable host and hostess.
Those who attended from the city
were passengers on the Denver Special
furnished by Paul Budig. He assumed
charge of the party and under his able
management the entire party was
transported both to and from the ex
cellent farm. The misadventures of
the party who went from the city were
numerous to say the least. It is said
that Ed. Donat who made one of the
big party from the city, saw some goats
on the way out but the remainder of
the party insisted the alleged goats
were swine. Edward, however, still
claims he was right. There were other
curious happenings on the trip. There
was a jug of cider taken along and
Clark Kinnek was supposed to know
what it was. He was asked to treat
his friends and passed the jug around
the crowd. Every one took some and
he really believed he was about to lose
out entirely, to prevent such a disaster,
he grabbed the jug and took a double
dose. It turned out to be water and
he deluged the crowd after he found
the trick they had played upon him.
He was not alone in his troubles. Har
vey Harger was starred as the man
who could ride the bucking broncho and
he gave a fine exhibition before the
crowd, lighting several times with a
loud bang in the lot but he finally
mastered the beast amid the applause
of the assemblage. Victor Anderson
gave them all an exhibition of fast
work in running a machine with pedals
on it. lie started out to catch the rest
of the crowd by working the pedals but
it was a failure. It can be said for
him that be really entertained the crowd
with some fine singing, he giving them
several popular selections. Other events
included a shooting match in which
John Libershal won. Some exhibition
shooting by Paul Budig and Ed. Ilronek
I deserved special mention, they shooting
at an apple hung on a string.
After all these thrilling events.supper
was served by Mrs. Tritsch and it is no
flattery to say that this supper was one
of the finest ever served to a large
crowd in this vicinity. There was
everything that it was possible to pro
cure and it was done up on the style
that makes it more than acceptable.
In fact, every mouthful made one wish
for more. Anton Koubek had tele
phoned two weeks ahead to have
chicken served and Mrs. Tritsch had
certainly taken care of the order as
there was chicken galore and he got all
he ordered and then some. All in all
the supper was certainly one of the
finest the visitors ever indulged in.
An attempt to settle the county milk
ing contest was had, Anton Koubek
and Victor Anderson trying it over
again. This time there were three
judges chosen being J. P. Meisinger,
Conrad Meisinger ar.d Mrs. Ed. Tritsch.
The judges were unable to come to any
conclusion, Conrad Meisinger favored
Koubek and J. P. Meisinger favored
Anderson while Mrs. Tritsch claimed it
was a draw giving Anderson 'credit for
having more foam on the milk but that
Koubek had the heaviest weight in the
milk. Anderson is somewhat shaky
now on his claim to the championship.
The entire party returned home in the
evening after a most delightful trip.
Those who were present were P. H.
Meisinger and family, Conrad Meisinger
and family, Jacob Tritsch and family,
John Tritsch and family, Fred Khenny
and family, John Kaffenberger and
family, Saul Adamson and family,
Henry Born and family, C. II. Vallery
and family, Philip Schafer and family,
John Schafer and family, Mrs. Maggie
Schafer and family, Will Kruger and
family, Harvey Harger and family,
Clyde Adamson and family, Misses Lil
ly White, Louise Kehne, and Messrs
Ed. Donat, P. F. Budig, Anton H.
Koubek, Joe Libershal, John Libershal,
Victor Anderson, Frank Koubek, Earl
Geis, Ed. Hronek and John Jourenek.

WHY NOT TRADE AT HOME?
The republican pajrers are already
apologizinrr for Tait on the stump be
cause he cannot make ranicl-fire. trood
political speeches.and the Lincoln Jour
nal says it is "because he has teen too
busy in his country's service."
And we believe that the Journal
stated a fact. Taft has all his life hern
in the service of his country 1 11 1 never
did he get an ortiee by 'din;?; before the
people and have them sr-:y whether he
should he chosen or not. Taft has al -
ways held an appointive ofllcre. while in
the "country's service. " For appoint-
ments he is a record breaker ar.d here
is the record:

where they have been visiting relatives
and friends and departed this uoon for
their home at Broken Arrow, Okla.

having been in Washington and Oregon
for several weeks and later visiting
with relatives in Knox county this

Judge H. D. Travis returned Mon
day from an extended sojurn in Ohie.
He found matters in a serious state in
the east, factories being closed down
and a general business paralysis exist
ing, everywhere. Thousands of men out
of work and times are very hard. The .
conditions are much worse than in this
section. Political conditions are decid-
edly mixed, there being a feeling that
Bryan is going to show unexpected
strength in that section and standing a
good chance of victory. While away he
was seriously ill, having taken a cold
which made him a lot of trouble. He j
is feeling fine now and looking much
better than when he went east. He was
quite able to take his seat on the bench
this morning and commenced the Sep
tember term of court.
