TothaPeoj of ths 14th
1 Jtfr is with much regret that
I resigned thd position of Dis-
tjrict Judge of these four counties
after nearly six years of service
if that capacity In the recent
primary I was nominated by the
people of the 5th Congressional
District for Congress and feel
that it is my duty to visit the
people before the election talk
with them find out their wants
explain my platform and assist
in the success of our party
wish to thank the people of this
judicial district for their kind
co-operation during the past six
years and their assistance in my
behalf I always administered
the affairs of the office to the
very best of my ability
i About the first of September
id the beginning of the busy
court season and while I needed
the salary of District Judge I
cpuld not give my attention to
those duties and also make the
campaign Therefore not wish-
ing to draw a salary that I did
not ‘ earn decided to resign
Words will not express 'my ap-
preciation for the Congressional
nomination and if elected I will
work in that position as I have
always done
It The people now see the need
of Warehouses and when I an-
nounced for Congress' my plat-
form contained a provision of
that kind' The Government
should build Warehouses where
the farmers can store their pro-
ducts and borrow money from
government on his Warehouse
receipts at not to exceed six per
cent ' interest if needed ' to
engble him to hold his products
for a fair market and not he
compelled to sell when the mar-
ket is off
I also favor an early settle-
ment of Indian affairs and want
the Government to assist the sol-
diers and sailors of the recent
war to buy them homes in the
country or in town a3 they de-
sire Thanking the good people of
this District for ‘their kindness
and assistance and assuring you
that I will greatly appreciate
your assistance in the election

Must Produce More
Naturally the $600000000
wage increase granted railroad
workers will be passed on to the
public in the form of increased
passenger and freight rates
There is just one way in which
the country as a whole can get
value for its additional expendi-
ture and that is for the railroad
workers to show their apprecia-
tion by an increase in efficiency
The cost of living can never go
down as wages remain high un-
less those receiving the wages
produce more'
