CHAMP CLARK FOR PRESIDENT
John T. Henry, of Troy, writes that
Lincoln county is for Clark, "until
we have crossed the last ditch.” The
Troy club will soon have 2,000 mem-
bers; there are only 2,400 Demo-
cratic voters in the county. W. E.
Martin, Chairman of the Ralls Coun-
ty Democratic Central Committee ap-
proves the organization of Clark for
President Clubs and says Ralls is
for Clark, solid. Brice Edwards, of
St. Charles, writes that "Champ
Clark stands preeminently fitted for
the highest honors the country can
given to him. St. Charles county is
anxious to do all she can toward .Mr.
Clark's nomination and election. Mr.
Hofard Ellis of Montgomery City,
approves the Clark clubs and says

been local option vs prohibition re-
sults might have been different.
The saloon men think they have
been too frank. Last year they ask-
ed for just what they wanted and
what they expected. This year they
will try to get what they can and
depend on evading and violating the
law. The saloon men have learned a
lesson, never more will they be
frank, never will they openly fight
for what they want. This time they
will seek to repeel prohibition and
to Mr. "A" they can exp'ain one way
and to Mr. "B" another way. What
they really want is to bring the sal-
oone back and experience has taught
L. C. Edmundson is frequently
mentioned as fitting timber for the

Edmundson is a farmer and a man
of experience. He has proven on
numerous occasions that he has the
courage of his convictions.

CHAMP CLARK’S LEADERSHIP.
(Alton, III., Times.)
Tlie Democratic House under the
leadership of Champ Clark is not
only doing fine work, but it is influ-
encing the Republican Senate to
legislate for relief of the people and
Presindent Taft will not dare to
veto these bills. Thus the Democrats
with control of only one department
are really running the government.
A- few yedrs ago the Democratic
party could not run itself. The cre-
dit for this change of conditions be-
longs to Champ Clark of Missouri,
who ought to be and will be the
•.V! D '
(Quincy, 111,, Journal)
Champ Clark is one of the big-
gest men in the United States, and
one of the best men. He is all the
way through and back again. Champ
Clark is pure gold. It is many a
day since the Democratic party has
had as wise a leader, as sane a lead-
er, as safe a leader, and one so
tactful as Champ Clark.
CHAMP CLARK S PLUCK.
(Corning, Calif., Observer.)
Champ Clark has worked un-
ceasingly during his long political
career for the principles that are
now being made the platform of the
people ragardless of party; he has
fought against heart-breaking odds,
until it seemed a forlorn hope of
even a glimmer of success. And now
that these priciples are winning it
looks as though the plucky Misso-
urian would raise with the tide and
enjoy a substantial reward for his
bravery and canstancy in the face
of almost overpowering opposition.

FOLLOWING THE ROTATION
THE FLATTENED BOOM.
(Boston Daily Advertiser.)
One of the principal phenomena
of the summer has been the gradual
flattening out of the Woodrof Wil-
son Boom for president. The manner
in which it is sliding down the,
toboggan is regarded as truly mar-i^ainns good rains,
Those who have not yet decided to

poverty and stay in out of the wet. While
