This is the record briefly given of legislation and administration
during the last two yeai'S, through the republican party. All this has
been done In the interest of the people of this state. The republican
party continues to stand for those things, is legislation and adminis
tration which will promote good government and prohibit any person
or corporation from enjoying special privileges at the expense ot the
public. Our concern is to deal with all questions as they arise in a
way that will best promote and conserve the general welfare of our
state. There shall be no retreat.
I ask that the record of the republican party of deeds done in this
state during the last two years he placed for consideration beside tho
democratic promises of the past and the present, and atipeal to the
people of this state to stand by the new deal and for the party and
the men who steadfastly with honesty of purpose and without malice
have done so much for the common cause of good government.

If the Pocket-Book is to Remain Filled
The Farmer Must Protect it
With His Vote
The farmer vote has always been
the backbone of republicanism. New
York state has always been a pivotal
state. New York City has always
been democratic. The Tammany
tiger has dominated the cttv. Re
peaters, and other fraudulent prac
ticos. have kept the big city demo
cratic. What the state would do has
depended upon what the honest
farmer rote of the up-country did,
aad this Influence has nearly ulwaya
favored the republicans, so that only
4wi«e In forty-eight years have the
democrats won. The great agrricul
tiiral states of the west have always
been Gibraltar* of republicanism.
This year, more than ever before,
In the history of the country, the
fanner finds reason for supporting
republican policies. He never was
so prosperous. Never did ho receive
such high prices for hfs products of
every kind. He will therefore, not
vote for a change, for he doesn’t
want a change.
The Tribune herewith gives some
figures that contain overwhelming
arguments on the farmer's side
showing why he doesn’t want a

For 1907 alone the value of the
corn crop was the enormous sum of
