Some Pertinent Questions
Have you studied the proposed Constitutional Amendments
Do you believe it safe to vote for Initiated Measures unlets
you are familiar with their meaning ....
Are you in favor'of repealing the Registration Law
which protects your vote ......
Are you in favor of turning over the Election Machinery

are hoping !o get these democratic
votes on personal grounds, by per-
sonal appeal to vote for the man. and

county or district office -have you
.-topped to think that in doing so you
are indirectly giving a blow to the
Wilson cause? Do you want to vote
for a man for county office who on
election day is going into t^e booth
and kill your vote for President Wil-
son? For a man the very presence
of whose name on the republican
ticket signifies opposition to Wilson
and whose whole party organization
is engaged in. a mighty ertort to de-
leat our president for re-election'-
Can you afford to do this?
The fact is. democratic voters in
Pott Counyt this year have a splendiu
ticket, from Woodrow Wilson all the
way down the line. There has nejer
been less reason that there \* this
year for a good democrat not to vote
the ticket straight There are but a
few state offices to fill this time, but
the democratic nominee* for those
places are exceptionally strong men.
Our nominee for congress is a spot-
less statesman; in the party's choice

we have men pre-eminently qualified;
and the same may be said of the en-

i count, using it literally as a stepping
, stone to success.
The plain truth Is that William j
Sidney Porter, known by his pen- ;
(name of O. Henry, served three years
in the state penitentiary at Colum- !
bus. O . for embezzlement. There is
(no question of the embezzlement, as j
• a legai fact. The offenses occurred
in 1894-5. when Porter was paying
and receiving teller of a small bank
in Austin, Tex. The reai criminality
ol his acts, however, seems open to
It was a queer sort of bank, run so
loosely that patrons used td go be-
hind the counter and help them-
selves to money, leaving memoranda j
oi their helpings if they happened j
to think of it. Porter's predecessor i
and successor both got into trouble
It was perhaps inevitable that Por- j
ter himself, with his constitutional j
carelessness and disregard of the
value of money, should have don-

• victed !n 1898. The foreman of the j
grand jury and the foreman of the
trial jury that convicted him both \
said afterward that they regretted
Anyhow. Porter went to the peni-
tentiary He had written in a de-
sultory way for newspapers, but had
never attempted serious writing. His
prison job was that of druggist clerk
It left him leisure and gave him an
ambition to write. He began scrib-
, bling stories which he sent to a New j
Orleans friend, who in turn sent
them to magazines. Prom the first

left the penitentiary, he bad a repu-
