have often been made to blush vfith

in neighboring countiss about the
frauds that have been practiced in
Franklin and why arc not the
thieves and viltians brought to jus
tice? As well had you ask us to
gtojv radicate from stealing and lic
jng. Bat friends we see better
times ahead, the dark cloud of
radicalism which has hung over us
like a pall so long, will in Novem

bright sunlight of democracy will
shine cut in all its efalgencc, mak

Notwithstanding the" fact that
you are out of work, out ot money,
out of food, perhaps out at the el
bows besides, the Republicans still
ask 3'ou to vote their ticket to
deposit'ycur ballots for Hayes and
Settle. Just ask them how it
comes that this is so. Just ask
them how !it happens that after
they have been in power sixteen
years --that after 1 they have had
everthiiig in their own hands tor
such a long and weary time, the
condition of the poor laboring man
1s now worse than ever before in
the historv " of "this ! cbuntrv.' Just
ask them whv it is that there is
neither money nor work,' nor (in
thfeVitios, in thousands of cases,5)
food nor clothing. Just ask thom
why it is that thd' poor are every
day becoming poorer ' and the rich
richer. Why it is that the country
is billed all over with sheriff's sales?
AVliy it is that the poor man's hdrsc
