D. M. Monroe, Everett, Wash.
Why don't they vote for us? Be
cause tho moral scent Is keener than
tho intellectual, a political party
branded with the name democrat
suggestive of slavery, whiskey, Tam
many hall and a jackass, decides the
doubting voter, who forgetting tho
platform remembers the name
scents the odor and avoids it. What's
in a name? A bad odor. Let us
leave the name to those who love
the odor to the element that be
trays us in the halls. of congress ad
mitting their interests are best served
by republican success. We might,
under a new name, with an issue
clear and deep enough to be worth
fighting for, attract to our assistance
the respect and support of a large
body of republican voters, progres
sive enough to see the fallacy of pro
tection, but with an inborn aversion
towards that party whose name is
suggestive to them of a few things
other than reform. Let us forget it!
L. K. Moss, Warrior, Ala. I have
read your letter to President Taft
in regard to another constitutional
amendment. It is a good sugges
tion. Why not also ask him to favor
an amendment that will give the
states the right to protect their peo
ple from the liquor dealers in other
states? If you would put yourself
at the head of a movement to ac
complish this it would be a success,
and you would be the most popular
and best loved man in America.
John M. O'Brien, Muscatine, Iowa.
Mr. W. S. Manning, correspondent
for the New York Times, said: "Some
democrats are prone to act in the
senate in apparent conflict, but in
real harmony with Senator Aldrich."
When I look through the list of those
senators who voted a duty on lum
ber and iron I find many there who
I thought were democrats, but they
are in harmony with Senator Aid
rich and the trusts. I believe it was
Thomas Jefferson who said that
there was more virtue In the people
than would ever be found in the
representatives of the people. A few
men to act as traitors are to be ex
pected, but this large list pains me.
I desire to say, if you please, unless
the democrats elect senators and
representatives that will give expres
sion to the will of the people, rep
resentative government is lost.
Stephen Jewell, Grant's Pass. Ore.
As to the future, we were right in
1896, 1900 and in 1908, and for my
part, I am not willing to surrender
one principle for which the true
democracy of this nation is contend
ing. We are right, and the intelli
gence of the world knows It, and
the time is coming when right will
prevail. I began fighting the battles
of American democracy forty years
ago, and expect to continue forty
years longer if permitted to live "that
W. C. Williams, Denver, Colo.
xne one tnmg to do is to keep on
fighting for our principles. This is
a war, not a battle, and Bryan is
young enough to make it possible
and probable that he will live to lead
us to victory.
Pat B. McGill, Morganfield, Ky.
In your letters from the people I
notice J, M. Foy, writing from Pu
laska. Fla., says that no party in
which the south is a dominating fac
tor should be intrusted with the na
tional government. I fear that the
gentleman is looking through a glass
darkly. I would like to know why
he says so. In my opinion the cause
of the defeat last year was the cow
ardice of the press. The reason be
ing that in every county seat there
is a clique of bankers and nMiQl.
beneficiaries of special privilege
which ought to be called legalized
theft, calling themselves democrats
that bolted when tho party got to
be democratic and it was to keep the
good will of this element that the
papers put their cowardice on exhi
bition. I have watched tho con
gress for over thirty years, and I
have never seen the republican party
pass one measure that did not put
the dollar above the man and if any
republican will point me to one de
cision of a republican court or offi
cial that did not decide for money
against human rights I will do the
most contemptible thing a Kentucky
gentleman ever did. I will vote tho
republican ticket. It is impossible
for one man to admire another any
more than I do-Mr. Bryan. I havo
watched him ever since he went to
congress and he has been on the
right side of every question from
that time to this and as he so beau
tifully says: "We may not achieve
success, but we can do more. Wo
can deserve it."
Dr. S. H. Murphy, Colony, Kan.
I think our defeat was duo to lack
of daily newspapers to advocate tho
cause of the people. The people
must be educated through the press.
The opposition seems to have a largo
Subscribers' Advertising Depr.
A great many of our subscribers
havo been quick to realize the hand
some profit they can make by adver
tising in our Little Advertisement De
partment. Wo started this department
of Httlo advertisements expressly for
our subscribers, so they could adver
tise at tho very low price of G cents
per word, their farms, homes, lands,
surplus live stock, poultry, eggs, bees,
birds, pet stock, seeds, plants, nursery
stock, produce, implements they had
outgrown but which woro still useful,
etc. It didn't take our big army of
subscribers long to And out that it
pays to advertise in Tho Commoner's
Subscribers Advertising Department
Tho rate of six cents per word is rela
tively much smaller than tho cent a
word rate charged by papers of 1,000
circulation. Tho Commoner has a
guaranteed circulation of 145,000. so
tho actual cost to you is about 1 cent
per word for 24,000 circulation. Soma

vertlso their miscellaneous wants, but
havo built up a regular mail order
business from these small advertise
ments, and raiso stock, etc., on pur
pose for their customers secured: by

and articles of their own make, or act
as agents for manufacturers.
You can make money and build up a
nice little business of your own by
using this department to place your
proposition before Tho Commoner's big
army of readers. If you havo anything
to buy or sell It will pay you to uso
