LAST WORD TO POPULISTS.
[From F. W. .Incut**, iu<tiiaxv r peoplc'H jutrt>
When the populifts go into the
voting booths to vote they will llnd H.
e. Ntraujrhen's name on the people's
Here ia given you the opportunity
to vote as you have talked for years.
Though without much means, we
have placet! this opportunity before
you. None of you ever before wit-
nessed such a campaign as we have
faced this year Our erstwhile friends
(democrats have made every effort to
kill what meetings we have been able
to hill. It it little short of a miracle
that we have so well succeeded. Iiut
we are here, the ticket, is in the field,
4nd it is up to you voters to do your
duty to the past and the present for
reform. We do not depend upon the
work that has b~en done in the pres-
ent campaign for our life. All popu-
lists have learned to distrust the ways
of the old parties and are full of the
principles of reform. You have need-
ed no campaigning. You know your
duty and we believe you will serve
your party in this crisis.
Every scheme will be used to fool
the populists. Every means that has
been tried to do so has failed.
Vote for Straughen and don't be
ashamed of the vote you cast. How
can you square yourself with your
conscience if you vote for a represent-
ative of the old Cleveland democracy?
You ean't, you know it. Turn out
and give Straughen thirty thousaud
votes. You know what that means. It
means that we are the coming party.
Steady, populists, when you take up
the ballot. Do your duty for the sake
of victory in coming campaigns.

ron COUNTY" COMMISSIONERS
SOME REASONS WHY YOU
SHOULD VOTE FOR E. B.
SHOTWELL FOR SUPERIN-
TENDENT OF SCHOOLS
He is always uceommodating and
courteous about his office and willing
to assist school officers and teachers
in any w:iy.
Uo devotes his whole time and en-
er%y to Me cause of education.
He was the only superintendent in
tin; territory who voted at the territo-
rial association against a committee
to lobby for an increase in the salary
of county superintendent*.
He has had 27ti eighth grade gradu-
ates since his election, while there
were only M prior to hi. taking the
ihe executive committee of the Ter-
ritorial Teachers' association has
assigned Supt. Shotwell the subject
"How to Maintain a High Standard
of Education in the Public Schools."
This is certainly a recognition of the
ability of Supt. Shotwell so maintain
a high standard of our schools. Why
then should we not have tbe most effi-
cient man in Lincoln county for our
superintendent, when it only'requires
our voa? on Nov. 8 for E. B. Shotwell.
In the 1st district John Murphy asks
for re-election. He has served his
district faithfully for tiie past two
years and with the experience he has
gained during this time wtll give even
better service during the next two
vears. He will stand for whatever will
benefit the county and will endeavor
to have the affairs managed in an
Sherman Springer in the 2d district
is a man thoroughly fitted by educa-
tion and natural ability to make an
ideal commissioner. He believes in
economy in-the disbursement of pub-
lic funds and in a reduction of the
present high rate of taxation.
For the 3d district W. J. Harding is
our candidate. He is a good substan-
tial farmer and a man of excellent
judgment, and integrity. If elect-
ed he will look after the intei-
ests of his district and see
that the funds belonging to it are ex-
pended there. He will stand for lower
taxes and economical management of
all the county affairs.
Lincoln county Is interested in four
legislative candidates, two councilineE
and two representatives. In tli3 north
part, of the co.inty L. ti. Xiblack is
our candidate for the council. He is
the editor of the Guthrie Leader, has
been active in politics and knows the
needs of the territory and especially
of his district.
, 1'ottawatomie county have joined the

Registration in cities all over the
territory has been light. If the vote
over the territory is indicated by the
city registration there will not be
much increase in the total vote over
two years ago.^
W. J. Harding is making a winning
campaign in the third district. The
people there know him and trust in his
integrity and sterling honesty. The
voters of the third district m y rest
assured that if W. J. Harding is
elected that the third district will re-
ceive its share of the road funds. VV.
J. Harding will not suffer the other
commissioners to spend his part of
the money and then try to indict them
before the grand jury. He will see
that his district gets its fair propor-
tion before the other fellows claims
are allowed.—Guthrie Leader.
Has anyone ever asserted that tha
pro'iate judge's offlcp ha* not been
ably managed by Judge Cordell? He
has been tried and found competent,
courteous, careful and efficient. And

shown any evidence i f possessing such
'super.>r qualifications?" He has
j been compelled to take up several
