Apply B Cox MR BRIANS STRAIQJIT TALK Inhts speech delivered at Rushville Ind Mr Bryan gave the listening Hoosier hosts some very straight talk on the race question According to the press dispatches the Nebraskan dwelt Nlth particular emphasis upon what he termed the determination of the present administration to force the race question upon the people and You never hear of the president a negro postmaster In the orth but In the south where the elevation of the black mann above fits white brother Is particularly distaste ful there where the colored appoint ments are made It Is to be regretted that more of the democratic orators do not carry this truth home to the people of the northern states Instead there seems to be timidIty In the heart of most northern democrats whenever the race qUEstion Is mentioned and speakers going Into the campaign In the doubtful states are warned against reference to ItiVhat possible harm can be done by telling the truth about the responsibility of the present occupant of the white house for keeping this race qnestlon constantly agitated Do the democratic managers at the North imagine they are going to get nelllu votes no matter how stlent they may be or how much they may profess po lltical friendship with the brother In black Surely 1f this Is the motive inspiring their silence they are count- Ing upon something no more substantial thawn moonshine Wbat they ought Wdo Is to tell the plain truth about this race agitation and show exactly where the responal- blilty lies They ought to meet the republican taunt of a solid south by showing that one of the chief factors 11 keeplo that south solid is this ministration determination to ele vate the coloredman above his htte- btother timiditycpotMrprYBni stflifHht talk lBrctresb- nSJ I LAND

Congress GEO E STONE Wayne For Assessor C G JEFFRIES- ANNOUNCE3IESTS For Circuit Judge We are authorize to announce that IL THURMANof Washington county is a date for Circuit Judge the district comprising the counties of Green Taylor Marion and Wash nston subject to the action of the Democratic party The issues in this Campaign are well defined There is no excuse for any intelligent voter going astray Here arc the cardinal principles of both parties The Republicans stand committed to a policy of imperialism which means a large army the acquire ment and retention of colonies in the Philippines and elsewhere and a consequent interference in the affairs of other nations incit ing jealousies and inviting disas ter The Democrats favor freedom for the Filipinos a decrease in the military establishment Jj peace with the world and a careful avoidance of territorial aggrandizement which can only lead to international comphcaj tions The Republicans are unalterably committed to a Protec tive Tariff which robs the many to enrich the few and which built up great private hasI the expense of the masses of the people The Democrats believe in a tariff for revenue only ad justed to the needs of an econo ical administration of public a fairs The Republicans having fostered the Trusts which defy the law have named as the Chairman of their Campaign Com mitt e the very man who wasi sworn to enforce the statute against them Instead of pun- j ishing these criminal destroyers ItPresidentis begging them for contribu tions to the Republican corrupt fund thus black Demol1Iof the Sherman law with what ever aid the common law canren der in an honest effort to regulate these Trusts which under the control of Morgan and Rockefel ler have cornered the business and the money of the country Iand will end by foreclosing a mortgage on the government it self Republicanism means a strong centralized government plus the personal equation rep resented by the autocratic im pulsive individuality of Theodore Roosevelt who has made a foot ball of the constitution and hasI usurped every governmental function belonging to the coordi nate branches Democracy stands for the autonomy of the states guaranteed by the Federal Constitution yielding obedience to the Courts and to the laws form ulated by the Congress and firm in the belief that the chief Exec utive is the servant and not the master of the people The Re publicans have opened the door of hope to the negro in the shape of Federal offices in the white communities of the South with an occasional lunch with the President to convince the colored man and brother that his vote is all important Theyhave propa gated the destroying germ of so cial equality which has entered the base minds of the negroes increasing their insolence and en couraging their hatred of the peo ple of the South who refuse toc give them the recognition Roose velt granted Booker Washington The Democrats are educating the negroes giving them equal op portunities with their own children and bearing every other burden which the presence of this ignorant depraved race in the South imposes on them but they protest against the attempt of the Republican party to incite the negroes to fresh outbursts of crime the logical result of their failure to secure from the South ern people the personal affiliation and comradeship which the President bestowed the leader of their race These are the main points of difference between the two parties What selfrespect jug Democrat no matter what past differences may have been can refuse to vote for his party intthis campaign in the face of record and avowals above setrforth aithis State The thorough work of the Campaign Committee has aroused the voters to a sense fIthe responsibility that rests upon them The organization is comI plete in every precinct a giant task requiring the utmost skill and patience This effective ap peal to the thousands of Precinct subCommitfthe generous advocacy of the State Press The Democratic newspapers realizing that this is openIof speakers appointments and to all the otherinformatrbnnecesSa ry to the spread of news in a Na contest They have given columns to the dissimination of Democratic doctrine thus equip ping the voters with arguments individIcious Many of them are busy professionalmen but they have left their offices and under the direction of the Speakers Bureau have traveled night and day to keep engagements in remote precincts The result of the united effort of the rank and file is a reunited party eager to give proof of its devotion We may not reach 40000 and may have to be content with 20000 majority but whatever the figure maybe let it be decisive Kentucky- is no longer a Republican State That much is certain The extent of its redemption will be known on November 9th and it will depend upon the Democratic voters to set it at such a figure that never again will the party of fraudand assassination lay claim to the State The Louisville Post thinks the Presidential contest is settled A correspondent of the paper wri ting from Horse Branch Ky makes the statement that a hen in that little village has laid an egg with T Rosse on it The writer also states that velt would have been added to Roose but the egg was not long enough for the letters This last information was secured from the hen making the story perfectly reliable It is said that 100 000 has been sent to the Republican State Cam paign Committee from the Nation Chairman to be used in the Kentucky election There will be no fight between England and Russia The
