A. llulllater and Loula lierka ua the prin

Congreavman Kennedy replied briefly to
tlie aasrrilon of U. M. Hitchcock at the
democratic meeting Thursday night that he
' the original ponlal aavtnga bank man.
"My opponent last night laid claim to
(he proprleiurahip of the pontal savings
b.tnk idea," aald Congrranman. Kannody,
"and aaaerted that -1 have appropriated
It. , The people of tliia country do not care
which one of us, or whether either of us,
originated It. but they do want to know
which one can put It through to a finlah.
"As a matter of fart the postal savings
bank was established In Great Britain when
' I was 7 yeara old and Mr. Hitchcock was
still younger. Neither one of ua has a
patent on It. Members 'of the cabinet had
taken an Interest la It and bills had been
Introduced Into congress providing for it
long before Mr. Hitchcock or I had opened
our mouths about It. Mr. Hitchcock went
to congreHs and no one heard of any postal
savings bank bill until the last day of the
first session when he Introduced It. I In
troduced my bill January 27 and after I
was turned down by the committee on post
offices and post roads, put through a reso
lution calling on the foreign representa
tives of the government to gather and re
port Information regarding the workings
of the banks In other countries.
Democratic leaders "Heat.
"The democratic campaign hook Is silent
on the subject and the republican cam
paign bonk gives the postal savings bank
bill as one of tha beneficent measures now
pending before congress."
Congressman Kennedy commended the en
tire republican ticket from top to bottom
and advised the voters to endorse the gxod
record made by republican officials.
T. A. Hollister devoted moat of his time
to atate' Isaues and refuted some of tha
arguments presented by the democratic
speakers regarding ntate finances. He
showed the state finance to b In good
condition In spite of the fnct the repub
lican administration had had some unusual
expenses to bear. He endorsed the em
ployers' liability law which the republican
platform promts and advocated the pass
age of a bill prohibiting child labor. -
"There has been no legislation of any
consequence ainre the birth of the repub
lican party that has not been passed by
republicans," said County Attorney 81a
baugh. "Every law passed for the benefit
of tha poor people has been passed by
republicans. Bryan has not said a thhiii
on tha tariff or money or any other ques
tion that has not been repudiated by the
"We are going; to have a republican con
gress, and how would It look for Hitchcock
to go down there to a republican congress.
The legislature Is going to be republican.
Send a republican delegation down there
and you will get what you want. What
could a democratic commissioner do with
four republicans on the board. This is the
only county board for years thai has placed
the county on a cash basis. This county
board found $215,000 of warrants outstand
ing that they could not pay. We had to
pay Interest on that amount. Now you
can get your money when you want it and
the count' does not pay one cent of interest
on registered warrants."
He referred briefly to his own recoi'J,
I pointing especially to the winning of the
Inheritance tax law case and the fact no
special attorney had been hired by the
county alnca he waa elected.
"We have a good ticket," declared Ixiuls
Berka, "and we ought to support It. We
ahould return the present county commis
sioner, because he has done his work well.
County Attorney Slabaugh has won more
cases for the county than any other in
cumbent of the office and he has had no
special counsel to help him. The 1'kIhU.
tlve ticket is a good one and the legislature
ought to be republican, because we have a
t'nlted States senator to elect."
