Father, Three Children Slain. •y •.••oelatid >rM> RENO — What does it feel like to be jailed for six days on suspicion of brutally killing a father and three small children?

Everybody is "down at the station" to see and hear the man who may be the next President of the United States. Carrying the campaign to the people is a custom in this country as old and as honored as America itself. For that's the way folks get to see the candidate face to face. That's the way they hear at first-hand what he has to say. That's the American way. It's good to know there will always be freedom of speech in this country, as long as a man can speak his mind, uncensored and unafraid, from the platform of a railroad car. It's good to know that democracy in America will always work, as long as you can cheer or jeer "down at the station"— and then go vote as you please.
