her purse stolen at the dance. She
had left her pocketbook under her
hat on a chair. Three fellows
from Blackwell came in and sat
down near the hat, but in a little
while they were gone and also the
purse. Friends of Amy went down
on the street and found the thieves
who ran and were chased in the
Wharton corn field. The marshal,
at Blackwell was phoned, and the
men were arrested in that town
the next morning. They acknowl-
edged the crime, but on returning

two samples of ribbon and a

No Eleventh Hour Charges
The cowardly trick of waiting
until a campaign is nearly over,and
then springing some damaging
charge, is no longer resorted to by
any one who pretends to decency
and seldom by any one, but there
are indications that the democratic
committee of the territory is pre-
paring to send broadcast certain
charges or statements at so late a
date as to make it impossible for
republicans to get proof of falsity
of the statements before the
people. No one should give cre-
dence to a story which comes on
the eve of an election when the
accused cannot be heard. Such
procedures are cowardly and dis-
honest, but just such things have
frequently been resorted to by
the democratic managers of this
county and as a democratic com-
mittee has headquarters in this
city, the members have been in-
duced to follow the disreputable
example set by the would be lead-
ers of local democracy.
We ask the people of all parties
who believe in a square deal and
decency to be on the watch for
last hour surprises and give them
no credence. The rebublicans
have made a modest, clean cam
paign and have made no attempt
to capture the voters by storm.
The republican committee has had
no trust money with which to run
a barn storming campaign. The
republican committee has had
nothing but the voluntary contri-
butions of the membms of the
party, and while these contribu-
tions were fairly liberal, they
were wholly inadequate to keep
fifty speakers in the field for three
motiths and to carry on a literary
bureau at greater expense than
keep fifty orators in the field have
had a mighty advantage in this.
They have not had to worry
over finances, nor have they
been compelled to economize on
expenditures. Their campaign
has been furious from the first
and anyone can see that they must
have expended close to $100,000
on this campaign. Mr. Voter,
where did that money come from?
You know that it has been spent,
and surely you can figure where
it came from. Do you believe
that any trust would so generously
contribute to a political slush
fund without a direct understand-
ing that it was to be favored by
Admitting, for argument's sake,
that the leaders of the two parties
were alike in sentiments concern-
ing trusts, and this is true in the
territories, would not the republi-
can party which received nothing
from the trusts be more likely to
stand by the people, than the
democratic party which has had
its campaign expenses paid by the
The republicans have practical-
ly made their campaign and have
nothing in reserve to spring. If
a new thing is sprung it will be
because it was not discovered
The 4th section of the Presby-
terian church will give a Hallow-
en social at the home of Mrs. C.
