an press and the Republican^pol-
iticians of the state are solid for
Hill Murray. Would it not be the
part of wisdom for Democratic
voter, to enquire why.
Seven men, thieeot whom were
Republicans, in the name of the
Anti-Saloon league, endorsed Hill
Murray. They forgot to reler the
matter to the boys at the forks ol
the creek for their ratification.

Hill Murray, so Conger says,
will call out the State Militia if
necessary, to stop the bootlegger.
We never heard of a bootlegger
resisting arrest and hardly see the
necessity of a company of soldiers
to do the work of a constable. It
appears to us to be both foolish
and very expensive.
Democratic voters, in casting
their vote for Governor next Tues-
day, should not forget tnat there
are many "close counties and
legislative districts. An unsatis-

and districts to Democracy. Can
Mr. Murray, who i at war with
the administration, who charges
the election boards with a henious
crime, lead these close counties

nomination on the Democratic
ticket. Hon. Lee Cruce is the
oniy candidate for governor who
upholds the administration. Hoss,
has characterized his campaign by
attacking everything democratic,
and Murray, slier satisfying bis
egotism, has no time left to devote
to the party.
Hill Murray started the cam-
paign by declaring himself,the
fatner of Hie initiative and referen-
dum. lt has been proved by the
records of the Farmers Union that
he was not the father or even
third cousin of that provision of
our constitution, but that be bit-
terly opposed its endorsement by
the first slate meeting oi the Far-
mers Uni in that ever gave it con-
sideration, and insisted that his
vote be recorded against it. I hat
record laugh, at liill every time
he lauds his work in behalf of the
Initiative and Refrenduui.
Unless you are n negro you neetl have no fear from the
Grandfather Clause, The man who tells you that the Hill
denies you the light to vote, tells you that you have negro
hlood in your veins.The Indian and white mini does not come
within the operative power of the law at all and it is only the
purest rot and the drowning man's catch at a straw that seme
of the republicans are using such argument in a futli hope
that they might gain some support for the kinky burrhead by
decent and self-respecting citizens of our community.
If you believe in a white man's government being run by
white men. then vote for the Grandfather Clause and keep
the coon in the cotton patch where lie belongs.
