The cohl fact about the matter is
that no politics, either Republican or
Democratic, had anything whatever to
do with the recent resumption of ac

A FEW HINTS TO VOTERS.
Before casting your vote with the
Republican party remember some of

party to take steps to provide for
electing senators by popular vote, and
the refusal of the Republican con-
vention to endorse the reform.
Second—The failure of the Repub-
lican congress to pass a bill providing
for publicity of campaign contribu-
tions and the refusal of the Republi-
can convention even to endorse the
Third—The failure of the Republi-
can congress to pass a postal savings
bank bill and the hypocrisy of the
party in endorsing this reform, which
it had just ignored in congress.
Fourth—The passage by tile Repub

of the state vs. W. K Burns, justice
