Convention for the Fifteenth

dicial call is an exact copy of the
above and signed by Sam. 13. How
ard , Chairman , and "W. E. Butler
It is time for the people to take
a hand in "turning the rascals out'
and then they will see to "keeping
t'lem out. ' ,
What is next ? An automobile
thit can walk , for farming pur-
POS3S. Wheels with legs and feet
to step over the clods without
mashing all the dirt down will run
lighter and can plow , harrow , plant
and cultivate corn , mow hay and
stack it , but you've got to have a
cow pony for the round-up.
Tiie g. o. p. organs hasten to an
nounce that their party has been
discovering frauds among their of
fice holders and that they are turn
ing them out as fast as they can
get to them. Now since these are
postal frauds and all the postal
clerks and postmasters who are in
volved , have been under a repub
lican administration during the
past six years and more , it would
indicate that not a decayed timber
is noticed by the administration
until a bridge is gone or rotten
throughout. Then they make a
great ado about fixing the thing up
and say that the republican party
can be relied upon to correct these
irregularities. As a matter of fact
the system is getting pretty rotten
when a republican administration
notices the irregularities and it is
a whole lot worse before any cor
rection is made. There should in
deed be a renovating by turning
tu ( la als out and putting in clean
men. It will not be done by re
Roosevelt And The Trusts.
All the g. o. p. organs are mak
ing much ado about Roosevelt's
attacking the trusts and go into
ecstasy over the imaginary or pre
tended attack and the dis-comfor-
ture of the attacked. Now , if any
of these papers that pretend to
know so much about the attack
will tell us what Teddy has actual
ly done , we will try to rejoice with
you. There has been much blust
er and pretense of doing some
thing but the republican party can
not be depended upon for any at
tack on the trusts that will be ef
fectual. During the time that the
g. o. p. has been in power the
wealth of a new country has been
developed and absorbed by the
trusts which are composed of a few
millionaires. The party bosses
manage to keep the boys in line to
whoop it up for a full dinner pail
as the only demand of nine-tenths
of the people , while the country
has virtually gone into the hands
of the railroads and other monopo
lies. Our country is not in our
hands as long as we have boodlers
who can get any law passed that is
wanted by these monopolies and a
supreme court to declare any peoples
ples law unconstitutional. It is no
longer a country by the people ,
nor for the people , but a govern
ment of the people , by the money
sharks of Wall Street. These con
ditions have been made possible
by the intense prejudice of that class
of people who see the wrongs of
their party and refuse to support
the Democratic party which has
always been a party for the people.

Remember The Game.
The original Boston Bloomers ,
Ladies' Champion Base Ball Club ,
who are making an extensive tour
of this country , travelling in their
own special car , will play the most
interesting and exciting game of
ball with the home team in Valen
tine , Monday , August 3 , 1903 ?
that has ever been witnessed in this
town. This club of lady ball play
ers has caused thousands to ap
plaud and marvel at their wonder
ful playing. The Boston Bloomer
Girls are without doubt the great
est club of lady base ball players
ever organized , and are in no way
connected with any other so called
Bloomer club. The Boston Bloom
ers under the management of W.
P. Needham , has been successful
for the past nine seasons , touring
the Northern and Western coun
tries. The remarkable success
during the short time they have
been in this part of the country is
only a continuation of the former
success they have met with every
where they have visited. Ladies
can attend this game without any
fear of being offended , as nothing
will be said or done that would
shock the most fastidious. The
grounds will be situated east of
the stock yards and will be enclos
ed with a large canvas fence in
cluding plenty of seats.

One's admiration for Webster's
International Dictionary increases
daily as it comes to be better
known. It never refuses the information

whelms one with a mass of mis
information illogically arranged.

is nothing better ; it covers everything.
