LINCOLN, Oct- 'A. Speclal.) From now
until the day of election the democratic
mi. nmin'iiM will redouble Its stories
about the number of votes Bryan and Shal-
lenberger will receive. This hae leen the
tactics of the democrats since thi cam
paign started, the object being to create
the impression In the east that Bryan would
carry this state and to start a stampede for
him. by figuring that he alone drove the
band wagon. The atorles told from now
until election will make the misrepresenta
tions of the rt 'ck like the work of
One of the big stories the democrats
scattered broadcast was that down at Do
Witt tht re w ere twenty-eight republicans
who had or"gar.lxed a club and all Intended
to vote for Bryan. Three different travel
ing men brought back the story to the
democrats. Finally one oemocrat who
counts noses In cases of this kind sent a
man to DeWltt to get the names of thes
"Is it true you have twenty-eight repub
llcana here who have organised a club and
! will vote for BryanT
'"Sure." he waa told.
"Will you give me the names of the of
ficers of the club?" the stranger asked.
"Well, really I d-n't know who the of
ficers are. but if you will go down the
street Mr. can tell you."
Mr. 80 and So was called upon and he
couldn't tell. Finally the aa-ent of the
democrats came away from DeWltt wl'h
the names of four men who It was " rc-
ported" to him had voted the republican
fid expected now to vote for Bryan.

and positive proof that money has beei
used for this purpose on a large Kale.
Inasmuch aa th published reports do no,
show these expenditures the only solutioc

The democratic committee has appeared
here with lta "slush" fund and has em
ployed some of It to suosidlxe the repub

lican paper pubrisned in dis town, sold

Similar deals have been ma.lo with other
papers in Wyoming. This is about fifty
times the regular advertising rate. Uu
