THE COUNTY DEMOCRAT*» TECUMSEH. OKLA
Illinois Woman Presents Party Princi-
Cm“ A DMoCEAT Aj,w°gi,T«
i lu till* issue of the Democrat we are
! pleased to announce the candidacy of
lion. Clyde U. Pitman for re-eleatiou
to the office of County Attorney,
i Clyde s administration of this office
has been noted for its economic sue-
ievss. llis prosecution of criminals has
] made Pottawatomie Couuty a terror to
■the lawless. He has been fearless and
i straightforward in his advice to the
; other county officers wLeu his services
I'.uv'c been culled for, untl has displayed
u knowledge of the county’s business
! affairs that would be hard to replace
I through any other man.
j No important question in which tna
i couuty at large was concerned has pas-
1 sed him unnoticed, lie has stood open-
ly ami emphatically either for or
! against any given project and his in-
fluence has been an important factor
in the rond building progress we have,
made during the past three years. He
is the kind of a man who naturally
(makes good in office. He has entered
i the race for another term at the re-
!quest of many,of the county’s leading
citizens and hfs many friends feel con-
fident of his success. _
Mrs. Howard T. Willson, chairman
of the Illinois Womuu’s Executive
Committee, tells why she is a demo-
crat in the current issue of Edict, of-
ficial magazine of the first Congress-
ional district, Illinois Federation of
W'omen’s Clubs. Mrs. Willson says, in
“1 believe that the Democratic
party stands today, as it did at the
time of Jefferson, for true democracy
—for the safeguarding of the special
privileges to none. During all these
long centuries in which women have
had practically no rights and but few
privileges, there has grown in their
hearts an imperishable desiie for self-
expression, not for their own sakes
alone, or even for the most part, but
that hey might voice tlneir longing
for a better world for their children.
When the Democratic National Con-
vention declared, in 1900, its belief in
the principle of direct legislation
whenever practicable, it voiced its faith
in real popular government, and after
their long silence women are glad to
speak for themselves.
“In the last eight years the Dem-
ocratic administration has shown that
it believes the benefits of government
should come home to the humblest. It
has concerned itself with the workers.
It has gone on record as unalterably
opposed to the exploitation of the wage
earner, and especially of the children
of the nation.
“Long years ago the eight-hour dny
was adopted for government employees,
but the Democratic administration
went further; it declared that all com-
panies holding Government contracts
must agree to the eight-hour day, and
it adopted the eight-hour day for wo-
men employees in the District of Col-
umbia, and passed a child-labor law.

The effects of the war ou our for
eign commerce ure moat evident iu
| the flow of-merchandise to and from
this country and Europe and other
parts of the world. Aceording to an
analysis of our foreign commerce <|ur-
| iug the first year of peace the bainuce
| of trade in favor of the United States
reached $-L017,744,265 us compared
with +.1,11, ,.ti 4,835 in 1918, and $3,*
281,044,642 in 1917. This tremendous
bulunce in our favor is, however, ex-
ceeded by the balance of trade against
Europe alone which totals $4,435,410,-
If our trade with Europe is elimin-
ated, the balance of trade for 1919 is
against the Uni tod States by $417,-
066,.'101. This, of course, due in a large
measure to the increasing amounts of
crude materials and foodstuffs im-
ported chiefly from the tropical coun
tries of South Amt. ca, Oceania and
Europe supplied about one fifth of
I our total imports and received about
two-thirds of out totul exports during
(the peace year 1919. There was an in ,
crease last year in total values of j
135 per cent over imports from Europe ‘
and 34 per cent over exports to that 1
Continent above those of 1918. The
great needs of the different countries
of Europe afforded a ready market for
the bulk of American erports with lit-
tle selling effort on our part.
In tl c past Europe has taken more
than 50 per cent of the total exports
from the United Status. Of our trade
to Europe since 1917, the United King
dom received a share nearly equal to
the combined exports of all other Eu-
ropean nations in both export and im-
|port trade. Our exports to England
alone have averaged $2,000,000,000 nn-
iaually for the past three years, lu
.the first year of peaeo our imports
from England more than doubled over
I those of the previous year. This rep- |
I resents the best showing of any Eu- !
ropean country since hostilities ceased j
