The weekly newspapers are closing rp
the campaign. The daillus have HOVOH 1
clays inoro In which to present argu
ments to iho votore.
The republican ticket is deserving of
support from top to bottom ami there
should bo no hesitancy on the part of
party workers to auk the voters to give
it their approval.
Quo cross in the llrat circle nt the
head of the ballot will vote for nil ro-
pnblican candidates , etato , congrosslon-
nl , legislative , county and precinct. It
is so simple that nil can undorstaud ant
no mistake need bo made.
To vote the republican ticket nil that
is nccosMiry is to nmko ouo cross in the
circla nt the top of the ballot and the
vote is complete. It is very simple nnd
cau bo quickly nnd onslly accomplished
nud the ictmlt desired by ix majority of
the people will hnvo boon attained.
Ohris Schmitt , cnudidnto for com
missioner in the Firbt district is before
the pcop o of that district for nu on-
ilorsoinout. Ho has given thorn faith
ful Borvico nnd satisfactory to the people
of the entire county nnd deserves re
flection. His election should bo by n
good , ronnd'innjority.
F. L. Putney , republican candidate
for representative , has had previous
legislative expreienoe that should prove
of value at the coming session of the
legislature , nnd will well represent the
people to the county. Ho has a large
following in JoiTerson precinct who are
supporting him with vigor and would
feel it au honor if their candidate is
given the support of the republicans of
Dr. J. M. Aldcn of Pierce will give
the people of the Eleventh senatorial
district the kind of representation in
the legislative halls of the state that is
desired nnd his majority should bo largo
He is an old resident of the district
thoroughly qualified from n business
standpoint and has the respect nnd es
teem of his neighbors. There is no
question but that the coming legislature
la to bo republican and Iho Eleventh dis
trict should have n represeutntive from
the mnjority party.
Vote for Hon. J. J. McOrathy nnd in
dicnte to President Roosevelt your ap
proval of his policies since ho wa

president is a uinn whom the peopl
cau trust. His entire lifo is full of iuci
dents showing his love for his fellow
meu ns ngninst monopoly , oppression
And corruption. Mr. McCarthy is to bo
depended upon to work in his support
Outside of the consideration that ho is n
worthy mnu to represent the district
the voters , should support him if for nether
other reason than that ho is a republl
When Mr. Mickey is termed the rail
road candidate , the accuser Jnsults th

most representative conventions helc

A large bhnre of those delegates wer

) OOB the World-Herald or nny other
launch fusion paper attempt to deny it ?
Not by n considerable. They know that
ho charge can be proven. And this is
ho man whom tho-people nro advised to
rust ; who wns to do such great things
ngnlust the railroads if elected. Cau
ho people believe that ho who accepts

It is not generally believed that the
voters will endorse such methods.

Minneapolis , Oct. 31. Six firemen
were injured at midnight in a flro that
entailed a damn go estimated at | 250 ,
000. The slxstory building occupied
by the Minneapolis Paper company
Captain George Smith of engine
company No. 16 was leading a squad
of men up a ladder on au adjoining
structure on First avenue , when the
ladder broke , precipitating six men
to the ground. Those who had climbed
highest were worst Injured. Captain

may j > rove fatal. Fireman George
Clionoy and Fireman Frank Hesslk
were also badly hurt. The other three
firemen were able to reach the city

STORE BUILDING IN RUINS.
Structure at Grant City , Missouri , Col
lapses. Killing One Man.
St. Joaoph , Mo. , Oct. 31. The brick
store of Smith Bios , at Grant City ,
Mo. , collapsed early yesterday mornIng -
Ing , causing n loss ot $15,000.
A man named Showaltor was killed
outright. C. W. Brown was fatally in
jured. The latter can live hut a short
timo. Dr. Ewlng nnd wife , who occu
pied rooms ever the store , escaped
with slight Injuries.
The collapse of the building came
without warning , the outer walls cav >
ins in. It is a complete loss. The
man killed had a room in the rear
part of the structure , and it was there
that the greater part of the damage
was done. Smith Bros , operated a
gon9ral store and a considerable part
of the slock of goods is ruined.
Selling Stamps Too Cheap ,
Helena , Mont. , Oct. 31. Postofflco
Inspector Beatty made at Kallspoll
last night what Is bolloved to be an
Important nrrost , when he captured
.Louis Peterson and James Bourkc ,
Who are supposed to be the leaders of
a gang of robbers operating in Mon
tana and North Dakota. The men
were offering to sell stamps ut a dis
count and when arrested had over
S.OOO in their possession.
AN "ANTI-dpRPOrRATION" PASS GRABBER.
The free passes carrlisd by W < HJ Thompson for years , and which he baa
la his pocket at the prosqut moment a'how how Insincere and ridiculous
'arc his claims , that ho. fsttfa'o "anti-rnliVoa'd" canaidate.
There are two classes of naBB-noldcrn. The employes or attorneys
for a company legitimately ca'r'ry free transportation. The political "plug-
, ? or" or "capper" is In th'o other class. Mr. Thompson deriles that he is a
railroad attorney or that ho tiae in recent years transacted any legal busi
ness for them. Then ho has no legal or legitimate right to a pass , and
stands condemned aa a mere political "capper" for the railroads.
When Mr. Thompson takes the platform and delivers his anti-corpora
tion speeches ho has In his pockotb the three annual passes represented
above , and also four free mileage books. Ho dare not deny It. He is try-
< ng to rldo into office under false pretenses.
PopullBt farmes , what do you think of this man ? IB it your idea of
eform to put into oflico a double-dealing. paoB-gfrabbins , smootihrtpntetysti'
lolltlcal lawyer ? How much could you depend on him ?

CONCHA GROWING RESTIVE.
Anxious to Hear From His Govern *
ment Concerning Canal Treaty.
Washington , Oct. 31. It developed
today that Senor Concha , the Colom
bian minister , is growing restive under -
dor the delay of his government in
giving him further instructions in an
swer to his dispatch regarding the
conditions which have arisen since the
forwarding of the letter directing him
to proceed with the negotiations fern
n treaty with the United States affectIng -
Ing the right-of-way for the Panama
Ho has sent several requests for this
information without avail. The lega
tion officials , however , are moved to
the belief that , the dispatch of Secre
tary Hay to Minister Hart , sent on
Tuesday , will have the effect of accel
erating matters , and that an early ad-
Juutment of the pending questions
which are delaying final action on the
treaty may bo looked for.
Much of the delay has been occa
sioned , so It is learned , by the atti
tude of Governor Salazar of Panama ,
who has been writing numerous let
ters to the legation here , and those
moro or less Influenced Mr. Concha In
postponing action on the instructions
