PEOPLE TO DO THE VOTING
A negro, incensed by white men who
chidcd him for "hogging" standing

night, whipped out a razor when the
car reached Thirteenth and Harney
and slashed Norman Ghyst, bartender
at the Musicians' club, who lives at
1410 Chicago, across the face. - Police
Surgeon Orris Myers took fourteen
stitches in the wound to close it.
Ghyst was accompanied by Dr. B.

The campaign of 1916 practically
came to a close in Omaha and else

The republicans and the democrats,
the "drys" and the "wets," have pre

people with eloquence and vocifer-
The people will now retire to their
homes and offices and shops and give
the matter deliberate consideration.
And on next Tuesday they will go to
the polls and cast their ballots, exer

they will vote.

lasted late, from the big Bryan

down to little groups where impromp

Debates Wax Warm.

depleted today. In this home and
fireside daily we would never, never

like that, and directed his words, as
soon as he could be heard, to the
other side of the automobile. "I want
to speak to men, not hoodlums like
these folks on the other side," he
said, with dignity.
All Ends Well.

The Democrats Pledged Themselves to Reduce
the Cost of Living But Living Expenses
Are Now the Highest on Record
The following; i$ a plank from their Platform vf 1912
CTHE HIGH COST OF LIVING is a serious
1 problem in every American home. The Repub
lican Party, in its platform, attempts to escape from "
responsibility for present conditions by denying that
they are due to a protective tariff.
"We take issue with them on this subject, and
charge that excessive prices result in a large measure
from the. high-tariff laws enacted and maintained by
the Republican Party and from trusts and commercial
conspiracies fostered and encouraged by such laws,
and we assert that no substantial relief can be secured
for the people until import duties on the necessaries of
life are materially reduced and these criminal conspir
acies broken up."

The Cost of Living NOW Is the Highest on Record
Nearly 407? Higher than in 1913 when the
Democratic Low I anfT Law Took Effect.,
If it is true, as Mr. Wilson claims, that our present prosperity
is not due to the war, then the high cost of living is not due
to the war. r
, The Democratic Party cannot claim the credit for one with
out assuming the responsibility for the other.
