Coming to McCook
The Opera House Was Crowded to Hear
the Present and Next Congress
man on the Issues
Judge Norris the Republican notninco
for congressman and the present con
gressman A 0 Shallenberger held
their liiml joint debate of the campaign
in the Menard opera house of our city
last Saturday afternoon in the presence
of a crowded bousecomposed of farmers
laboring men business men profession
al men and a fair sprinkling of ladies
The followers of both men were out in
numbers and both debaters were strongly
supported and roundly cheered on occa
sions offering
It is not easy to compare the men
they are so unlike in style Judge Nor
ris has the judicial mind and manner
nnd more calmly presents and argues his
points without attempting to use the
arts of the orator With Congressman
Shallenberger the case is vastly different
He has the agility of the typical orator-
icaljj jnast and a torrenlial facility of j
speg js Indeed it in not easy to follow
hs C iara of words lie has the poli
ticilik skill of indirection and is not
easy to nul down to a hard-and-fast
proposition Ho plays to the gallery
Congressman Shallenberger opened
the ball by roasting the railroads for
being in politics the coal barons the
trusts and the tariff He would take the
railroads out of politics by government
ownership and kill the trusts with his
bill lie claimed and we give him credit
for voting for one Republican measure
reciprocity In his closing peroration
which smacked noticeably of the
studied set honeyed phrase he threw
bouquets to the people with the politi
cians prodigality
Judge Norris followed congratulating
the congressman upon doing a few wise
and useful things that is voting for
some Republican measures and directed
the attention of the audience to the fact
that it would be much more advantages
to the district to send him Norris to
congress for the reason that he would be
found all the time voting with the Re
publican party and President Roosevelt
Judge Norris promptly took all of the
wind out of the congressmans sails on
the Fowler currency oiilby placing him
self on record as against the measureand
offered to resign if elected congressman
and the Republicans carried the measure
through congress provided Shallenber
ger if elected would resign if the measure
failed to become a law Shallenberger
did not accept the challenge although
one of the hottest assaults made by Shal
lenberger was on this strawman the
Fowler bill which has no more show of
becoming a law in its present form than
ix snowball has for its existence in hades
The judge favored reciprocity the oleo
bill protection of the American laborer
and market and stood with President
Roosevelt on the trust question charg
ing the Democratic obstructionists with
being primarily responsible for the exist
once of the trusts
If one were to attempt to sum up the j
whole matter it wouid be something like
this Shallenberger had the theories
and Norris the facts Shallenberger had
the imagination and Norris the condi
tion It was developed in the debate
that Shallenberger and his party are
associated with real disaster and distress
in our national commercial affairs and
that notwithstanding the prophesies of
the Democrats to the contrary the party
that Norris represents is administering
affairs of the nation under Republican
policies in an era of absolutely unex
amplod and uuequalled prosperity
The Republican position in governmen
tal affairs was shown to be impregnable
and the points of fact were cleariy with
the judge And wo say all this without
derogation of Shallenbergers accom
plishments as a medicine mixer of the
iirst class in the Democratic ranks
