It Is now admitted that the plans for a
"whirlwind campaign, with a national
speaker In every school house In the dis
trict," were only abandoned because the
old wheel horses who have directed the
course of the democratic mule team con
cluded the republican plan for still hurst
was better than the braes bands and
blazes of oratory. They recalled the fact
that wherever Bryan spoke In the Iowa
campaign last year the democrats were de
feated. The democrats only decided to
make some speeches after the reeublloans
eased up a little In the personal canvass.
The campaign managers have discovered
that the farmers will not come out at all

Bluffs Storm Crater.
For the next forty-eight hours Council
Bluffs will be the oenler of the political
battle. The republican manager will make
no effort to attract support to Judge Green
by impassioned oratory or fervid appeals
to political patriotism, but the democrats
have decided that some political thunder
shall shake the akles. Consequently they
have arranged a boiling meeting at the
Dohany theater this evening, when Judge
Martin J. Wade. Candidate Cleveland and
Emmet Tinley will be the speakers. There
will be brass bands on the streets and
plenty of enthusiasm In the vicinity of
Broadway and Sixth street. But while
this Is going on the skirmish lines of the
enemy will be thrown out in all directions
In other parts of the city.
The campaign has been singularly free
from personalities and bitterness. Judge
Green has been tireless In his work, con
ducting his canvass with the dignity and
sincerity that has characterized every act
of his official life, ana tie has added to
his strength by the force of his character
and his candor and fairness. While there
are ao many elements of uncertainly to be
reckoned with, auch as the refusal of the
farmers to quit their fields to vote and
apathy of aome of the republicans, the
friends of Judge Green are extremely con
fident of his election.
A dozen republican automobiles have
been engaged for work at the polls on
Monday, and many voters will have the
opportunity of free rldea to the polls.
