Vote a straight ticket.
The election of II. Smelser means
a vote for a Repuplican U. S sena
tor to help along the Roosevelt ad
ministration. If you aie in fayor
of i eddy, vote for Smelser.
t Senator Wall was one of the lead
'y» ing advocates of the Ramsey farm
ers' elevator bill He was the lead
er of the Republican majority In
the last sta e senate, and easly one
of the brainiest men in both houses.
See to it that he is returned.
The main fight m this county by
the opposition has been against J.
S. Pedler. He has made a good
county attorney and his administra
tion of that office ha* kept down
useless litigation and saved hundreds
and perhaps thousands of dollars of
costs to th * taxpayers. Vote for
Don’t forget the Constitutional
Amendment proposition, when you
go to the polls to vote next Tues
day. Yon should vote ‘^Yes” to the
I pr position as a matter of good
business judgment. Nebraska has
ontgiown that primitive affair and
needs a constitution in keeping with
her dignity and importance as the
great leading western state. There
is no politics in it. It is an impor
tant non partisan business proposi
tion and should receive the affirma
tion of one and all. Vote for it.

The above represents the upper part
of the official ballot, which will be
some five or six feet long this year. If
you are in favor of Roosevelt and his
policies, and a continuation of our
present prosperity, the only safe way
is to make the cross mark as shown
above, and deposit your ballot. Any
other marks are dangerous.
j t A LAST WORD TO VOTERS, f
■ There is not a single voter In %
i ■ Nebraska who does not know i
H that a continuation of Roose- *
\ £ vekism and prosperity is the *
j £ beet thing for this country. %
j £ There is scarcely a division of %
j | sentiment in any community on A
S this proportion. And it is just *
i l as plain, when you stop to think, $
\ [ that the only way to insure this 1 [
i h ia to rote the straight Roosevelt 4 [

f- you must vote for the men who u
y axe to help carry out the policy, it

The only possible chance for *
f A f
fueionists to elect any part of *
l their ticket this year is by the *
\ help of republican votes. Their n
l f \
I sole object is to get fusion can- 1 [
i. didates elected to office. Should ] [
f. they succeed in regard to the
s- slate ofices, is there any reason ?
f- to believe that they will conduct 1 \
y affairs any differently than they $
y did a few years ago. If they u
y should elect one or more men to a
[ congress, or get Bryan into the n
[ senate, would not all their ef- 5

\ ment of Roosevelt and his ad- ^
! i *
\ ministration? it

The conclusion is plain. The **
l only safe thing for republicans 1
• is to vote the straight ticket j l
In the last four years the af- ] E
fairs of the state have been run j E
In a buainesslike manner. The i y
> state Institutions are running ] [
| perfectly, are free tram scandal, £ |
* —in direct contrast with fusion *
Z control,—and the state has a j
good reputation at home and *
Z abroad. Business is good, east- 7

*. ern capital is seeking Invest- ^
* ment hare, and farms have al- t
*- most doubled In value. A., this *
*■ is due to republican prosperity Z
*r brought ca by confidence in re- 2
* publican management 4
Does any voter desire to bring 4
* back the old conditions? Think 4
* it over welJL
The fusionists have carried on 4
^ a campaign of misrepresentation *
and deception. By abuse, by *
false figures, and by insinua- 4
tions they have sought to con- *
Z fuse the voters. They have had ji
* plenty of funds for this and Z
* they have been unscrupulous in
4f- its use. I
For what purpose? The fu- 4
• • -j
^ sionists want a foothold in the -
* state house in order that they *
% may be able to again entrench *
t in the state institutions the j
* strikers and job hunters who ■
*■ disgraced the state in the same t
positions four years ago. But l
% behind it all is another shadow. *
The hope of Bryan is the 4
Z United States senate, where he 4
z may daily and hourly harrass 4
^ the Roosevelt administration 4
* and thus force himself and his 4
* vagaries to the forefront of de- *
* mocracy. His cohorts expect *
* Nebraska to send him there if \
% trickery and vilification and |
* boodle can do the job. Bryan \
*■ himself is to sweep over the }
£ state in his special train during *
* the last days of the campaign to \
* enthuse his workers. And they \
* expect republicans to help In I
jj| this! 4
» The fusion campaign for state j
*- offices is an attempt to secure j
* the state institutions and official j
* machinery for future use. The j
*■ revenue issue is a fraud on the j
* voters, and the fusiojrfsts intend j
* no relief in this direction. They *
* simply want to get men into the jj
J legislature who will help Bryan «
jjj into the senate. The free pass *
