When L. I.. Noiihrup, chairman of the llepublican county central committee, the speaker of the evening and the Republican candidates took their scats on the platform, practically every seat in the theater was taken and the space at the rear of ihe buildin was filled with peop'e 'who stood up during the entire evening, forseiiiug their failure to get a scat in Iheir interest in the address. -Vfter playing several selections in front of the Grand, the baud went in and rendered one number from the j»latfona. The Black and Tan quartette, composed of Frank .McDonald. Herbert Allen, "Hoc Toy" and Art Johnson, was then introduced.

Mr Scott said he was gJad iJiat .^fr. .\orlh- rup had "presented" him to the audience and not "introduced" him; and then added that while it might be ail light to be "introduced" out of hiir county as "the Hou.

Scoits spt-eeli is based largel* on this: That interests of the country demand that the Republican partj be kept Jn power. Hf reviewed the history of the two parties, showing by statistics on buslnes.- conditions that good times havi cltiiracterized Itepublicuu udmlnUiia- iloiia.

Th« speaker then quoted from Governor Hughes of Xew York, President Roost velt and Bonrke Cochran, the notec Democrat, sbowing what they thought of the fitness of Mr. Taft for prssi- ditot. The mention of the naine ot the Repoblican nominee was the signal "for an enthusiastic demonstration. In fact Mr.. Seott's reaaajtis were fre- qocKtly folknred by cheers and ap- plKose.

When the meeting broke up a Democrat on reaching the door pulled a Bryan button from his coat and threw it into the street. saying he was "through with the Democrats:' A Republican picked up the button and carried it. away to remember the meeting by. A promineut Demoirat said last !iii;lit after Iho meeting: "While 1 l-jiit look at polities as Mr. S<-utt docs 1 want to say that his address was fair and cleai: all the way through." The Democrats held a counter dem- >nslration in the Majestic theater, all of the local candidates s|>eakitig,^Fhe theater was about half fillinl.

DOFFED THEIR HATS The big battle is on. Xot in yoar.s has there been so much excitement in lola over an election as there is today. When ti;c poll-: opened this morning at eight o 'clock, there was a crowd of voters at the doors waiting to east their ballots. .\s a rule, the voting in ilie morning hours is not very heavy, but not so today. The of- iicials have had no tim<.' to discuss the weather and look out of the win- dt »ws. In many of the wards, the voters liuod up and waited their turn, many having to remain in line for ?omc time before they reached the booths. Considering the tact that the t)emo- c-ats arc laborin?: for a "forlorn cause" they are displaying considerable activity. The Republican l»-ad- eis are unusually cntliusiastic and conflik-nt of a deci.slve victory for tho entire ticket. That tho Democrats do not exptc to win is evidenceil by the fact tnat they were not l>ettiug even money oti any candidates and demanded bir odds before putting up their cash on any bet. The indications are that Uie vola will bo very ht^ary.

Comiilaint was made that in East lola this morning matiy Democrats were at the !ioll.« endeavoring to frighten Republicans away by threatening to challenge tliciu. .Members of the Republican county central committee, in order that the voters might receive fair play, sent attorn<^y.s to every precinct to ascertain whether or not the voter; rec'hed their rights utider the law.

This t'xltlbltlon .of unfairness makes it apttear that the Dentnerats ;ire carrying Into the election to«juy the same di.src-pataW tactics pursued by them during the campaign. One^ that is making the hearts of the Republicans glad is that very few. if any, Republicans are "scrateh- liig" their tickets. They walk into the booth and come out as soon as they have had time to make the X in the circle at the bead of the Republican ticket. A Republican employee of a smelter said this morning: "Several of the boys who had said they were going to rote for certain Democrats came to tbe polls this 'morning and said tbey had decided to vote the ticket straight" It is also noticeable that many Democrats con- same considerable time in voting, indicating tbat they are voting for can­ st.
