that he worked so hard In church af-

Havo the republicans been notablv
more successful In business than tho
democrats in this city? Wc cannot
nro that they have.
And this cry of tho business men.
Hns not the jioor man with his few
hundreds of dollars nt stake ns much
to lose as the busings man with his
thousands and Is he not ns competent
to lmvo n say In the affairs of the city?
Under the law hl vote counts for
Just exnetly as much ns the nmn vhn
has millions. This business cry doe
not eome from nny strong belief In
the fact that the business man 1ms
more rights than the ordlnnry man
but It Is n subtle aphorism that mnkos
a good slogan for the non-partisan
element and sounds reasonable II
one does not study It a little.
Who pays anyway? Upon whom
does the business man depend for hlH
micecas? To whom does the owner
of property rent his houses? The
Ioor m! Therefore the jioor man
pays. It Is he who goes out and
-with his hands nnd the sweat of his
brow gains the dollars that make up
a coininunltv and permits the business
man and the pro)orty owner to run
nroiind with this cry of the business
nmn. The other man Is working nnd
making the dollars and tho others aro
doing the lalklng. The members of
th e'oesl union the railroad men
hiliorers tfoo hired men of nil descrl-
Hons nre the men who pay. They nre
the foundation of this oily. When it
comes lo lie n question of tho bonds
of this city they are the ones who
shall carry It and they are the ones
who will suffer most from the onsu-
in Increase In taxation that will
lie brought aliout. And they will vote
those lionds because thev hnve less
