John II. .Morehead is running
for governor on the record of
what he has done. Aldrich is run
ning on the record of what he
promised lo do and didn't do.
Of this you may be assured:
When John II. Morehead becomes
chief executive of this great slate,
visitors to the executive olllee
will not be compelled lo listen to
abusive language at polilical op
ponents. Mr. Morehead talks like
a gentleman and keeps his prom

If a candidate is for Taft and
is a candidate on that ticket, can
he expect Roosevelt supporters to
vole for him? Or, if u candidate
is on the Roosevelt ticket, can he
expect a Taft supporter to vote
for him ? Now, there you are, and
you can take your choice. Hut
I ho best way out of the dilemma
is to vole the democratic ticket.

"cussing" the president until he
saw he had to have the presi

The same articles concocted

The only danger to I he success
of the democratic ticket is in the
possible failure of democrats
coming out to vole, the feeling of
certainty of t lie election of Gov
ernor Wilson may have a ten-
ency to cause some voters to
neglect to go to tho polls, in the
belief that Wilson is sure of elec
tion, and that their individual
ballots may not bo needed. Over
confidence is tho only thing which
can endanger democratic success
this year. Let every democrat
stand up and be counted and
share in tho great victory. Let
there be no laggards.
After the decision of the dis
trict court had been announced in
favor of the Taft electors, Mr.
Wait was notified by Tafl men
that it would be worth 10,000 to
20, (too votes to the republican
ticket if no appeal were taken.
The Roosevelt faction then served
notice that if the case were not
appealed, 50,000 lo 00,000 votes
would he lost. The secretary of
state took a day and a half to
think over the situation. Then
he decided to appeal. Lincoln

every democratic vote to make

Vole for John J. Gustin for

regret it. He is made of the
right kind of material to serve the
people rightly.
If you don't like this town

democrats, and only depends up

getting out to the polls and doing
your duty vote for Wilson and
Marshall, Morehead and Shallen

The bard limes scare trotted
out from Taft headquarters is the
last straw thai will break the
president's back. The people
have been fooled many times be
fore with eh a IV, but they won't be
fooled this time into voting for
Mr. Taft.
The great scare sent out to
laborers is ill-timed. The repub
lican party has use for the labor
er on election day, but that is the
only day in four years. The labor
ing voters understand this, and
they are not going to vote for
either Mr. Taft or Mr. Roosevelt
this time.
It is not good for democrats to
get loo contulent and remain
away from the polls. He sure to
come mil and vote and insist that
your brother democrats come with
you. This is the greatest epoch
in the history of the democratic
parly, because we have a great
opoprtunily to win. and win now
or never. Remember that.

John II. Morehead is by his home
folks he might possibly think
about being re-elected governor
of Nebraska. Hut it is an impos
sible caper for him to cut. Not
only is Governor Morehead in
dorsed at home, but he is so
highly endorsed at Aldrich's home
(Mutler county) that he will get
almost, two voles to Aldrich's one.
Notwithstanding I he many
false reports being circulated
about Hon. W. H. Manning, we be
lieve the people have sufllcient
confidence in him to throw these
lies by the wayside and go to the
polls on election day and cast
their votes for him. No jnan ever
done more hard work in tho state
senate for his constituents than
Senator Manning. He is a citizen
of which any community should
be proud, and he reveres the
confidence of the people too high
ly to commit one act that would
leave a stain upon his good char
acter. There are no better men
than Hill Hanning. His record in
Hie slate senate is as clear as to
doing a wrong act as any man
who ever had the honor of serv
ing in that body. You can't af
ford to vote against Hill Manning
and don't you do it. You will
regret it if you do.

Democrats, every one of you,
have a duty to perforin. And that
duty is to go to the polls next
Tuesday and cast your votes for
Wilson and Marshall.
Manning for senator, Guslin for
representative, Julis Pitz for
commissioner and . u. Jiryan
fur assessor make up on of
the best tickets ever presented to
the voters of Cass county. Don't
you forget that.
Julius Pitz should be elected
county commissioner, because of
his excellent qualifications and
his genial personality. He is
honest, he is capable, a genuine
good citizens, and why shouldn't
he be elected?
Democrats have more en
couragement to get out and vote
this year than ever before. The
democrat who falls to vote next
Tuesday will lose the opportunity
of his life to help in the election
of a democratic president.
Charles II. Husch, democratic
candidate for float representative,

should be elected I'nited Slates
senator, because he will prove a

will be properly represented with

ators as Hon. G. M. Hitchcock and

President Taft gave out a
cheerful statement the other day
in which he calmly announces to
an anxiously waiting people that
he expects to win! Alas! They
are deceiving him to the last. It
is really cruel and inhuman of
the estimable gentlemen who are
managing Mr. Taft's campaign to
lead the president thus blindly to
the slaughter.
Let every democrat stand up
and be' counted next Tuesday and
share in the great victory. There
is no danger of defeat if every
democrat does his duty. We want
to make our victory as sweeping
as possible, and to the end lhat
progressive democratic principles
may prevail every democrat
must vole for Wilson and Mar
shall. :o:
Here is another utterance from
that illustrious statesman and
democrat, Champ Clark: "I know
Woodrow Wilson. He brings lo
the discharge of his duties the
political vision of Jefferson and
I be strength and power and cour
age of Andrew Jackson. In the
White house he will be the ser
vant of the people, not of the pro
tected interests."
lion. Cone Johnson of Texas
delivered a great speech here last
night. The Parmele theater was
crowded to its utmost capacity
and everyone who beard his ar
raignment of the republican and
bull moose parties were more than,
pleased. Many were in from quite
a distance in the country to hear
the noted Texan. We wish Mr.
Johnson could speak in every
county in Nebraska before the
elect ion.
