Saturday, March 4. [THE FORT WAYNE DAILY NEWS R E P U B L I ALLEN COUNTY THE BATTLE GROUND Republican Congressional Success Too Important to be Jeopardized. The Party Cannot Take Any Chances This Year. We Can Win With the Candidate Who Can Carry Allen County TO THE REPUBLICANS OF THE TWELFTH DISTRICT: Believing that the return of prosperity, the restoration of the national honor and the security of the republic depend upon a return to power of the Republican party in all branches of the National Government, undersigned, appeal to the Republican voters of the Twelfth District to take no chances in the nomination of the Republican candidate for Congress. Allen County will be the battle-ground in the Congressional fight this fall. * To carry Allen County, the Republicans must nominate a man who is known to the voters of the county and is trusted by them. The Twelfth District is a Democratic District--Democratic at times by three thousand, at other times by four thousand and over, and at other times only by a few hundred--but usually Democratic. The District gone Republican, but such a result has been due to a split in the Democratic party. Why is the Twelfth District Democratic? The answer is Allen County. Republicans occasionally are elected in Allen County, but county is heavily Democratic. i Fort Wayne ,the only big city in the Twelfth District, is Democratic. A general defection in the Democratic party or the nomination of an uncommonly strong Republican candidate for mayor may now and then the Republicans, but the rule is that Fort Wayne, like Allen County and the Twelfth District, is normally Democratic; The great bulk of the votes that must be changed this year to make the Twelfth District Republican are in Port Wayne and Allen County. Fort Wayne is a metropolitan and cosmopolitan city, embracing in its all nations, all classes, all sorts of political opinions, all trades, arts and professions. The candidate who knows this population best, who has spent his life in the midst o{it, associated with it, mingled in it, become acquainted with it, and is personally known to, liked, respected and admired by who can command these votes. Who is that candidate ? t HE IS BOB HANNA, OF FORT WAYNE. We are convinced and positive that with Bob Hanna as a candidate, leading the fight on this great battle-ground which must be won to carry the Twelfth District, certain triumph awaits our party iu November. Bob Hanna's history as a vote getter has proved his strength among the people of Allen County. He can get the Allen County votes, without which no Republican can hope to carry the District. No other Republican nomination for Congress can so surely attract these votes to his support. We know that Allen County has one other candidate for Congress who ran two and four years ago, and was defeated both times. We knew these facts last summer when we were hoping that a new candidate would be a winner. We knew these facts when many of us urged and were largely responsible for Bob Hanna entering the congressional race. We did so because we believed then and now that Mr. Hanna is the Allen Conny and the strongest candidate from the district. The other Allen County candidate has no organization now, although he has made several campaigns. Bob Hanna, because of his long residence and official life and for other reasons, will, if nominated, command a large number of Democratic votes from Allen County, which the Republican candidate from the town of Angola could not do because of his lack of acquaintance political conditions in Fort Wayne and Allen County. Again, as your fellow Republicans in this District, and with the purpose uppermost of insuring the election of a Republican to Congress to represent all of us in the great and patriotic work of restoring and maintaining and re-establishing national honor and dignity, we appeal to you to join us in making victory certain by voting for Bob Hanna at the Primaries, March 7th. Hundreds of other representative business, professional and working men like ourselves, whose names cannot be attached hereto for want of space, join us in this appeal, because We Can Win With Bob Hanna of Fort Wayne ROBERT MILLARD Moellering Bros.

LIKE BIT OF HOLLANDj Colored Women Wear Flaring Skirts and Gaudy Turbans, with Wooden Shoes on Bare Feet. Paramaribo, capital of Dutch Guiana or Surinam, is the quaintest, most interesting city in South America, if not in the whole world. Were it not for the palm trees in the background and the absence of windmills, Paramaribo might as well be a village on the Zuyder Zee. White, green-shuttered houses, with steep- gabled roofs and dormer windows line The Function of Advertising Advertising is a vital force in the problem of distribution. But to be nearly 100 per cent, efficient it must be linked to the selling end of the business. The manufacturers are turning to newspaper advertising because it ties up with the men who sell their goods--the } retail dealers. Retailers are not only newspaper readers, but they directly feel the effects of newspaper advertising. They are cordial to products when manufacturers advertise them in the newspapers. Manufacturers are invited to send to the Bureau of Advertising, American N e w s p a p e r Publishers' association, World building, New York, for a copy of the booklet, "The Dealer and HisFriends." the streets and waterfront; typically Dutch church spires rise above the lower buildings;steamers and sailing vessels firing Dutch flags. line the docks, and from the tiny, ancient fort a gun booms out r to welcome the strangers to this quaint, out-of-the- way port. It seems strange enough to find a bit of Holland dropped down amid tropical suiToundings, but it is still stranger to step ashore among the people, writes A. Hyatt Verrill in an interesting little volume entitled "Isles of Spice, and Palm." the Detroit Free Press stales. One looks in vain for staid, stout Dutchmen, plump fraus and towheadecl children; in their places ;irc masculine negroes, buxom reNsns and brown pickaninnies, but all Dutch despite the color of their skins. The gabble and chatter is in Dutch, prices are quoted in guilders, Dutch signs hang at street corners and over shop doors, and "Yah, mynheer," s substituted for the customary and lamiliar negro "yas, sah." Colored Women in Dutch Garb. Even the costumes of the colored women are patterned after those of Holland, combined with African love of color and variations made necessary jy-the climate, with a result both plo- :uresque and remarkable. With gaudy .ui-bans tied'^tn such a manner as to imitate pointed Dutch caps; short, stiff capes of bright calico, and with wide, flaring skirts distended by innumerable petticoats and tucked into Uuge rolls about the waist, the ne- guesses appear like ample-waisted Dutch women turned black, and to cap me climax they clatter along with wooden shoes upon their bare, black feet. Incongruous ns wooden shoes may seem when worn by the negroes in the tropics, yet in Paramaribo they are quite in'keeping with the surroundings, which are thoroughly Dutch, intensely tropical and invariably quaint nnd picturesque. The broad, smooth- swarded savanna, faced by the law courts of red brick with their steep steps and white columns, looks more like the "groen" of some quiet New England village than the plaza of a tropical town, until one glances at the opposite side and sees the rows of royal palms and flaming poinclana rees before the club and government house. Canals Crossed by Quaint Bridges. Along the broad, smooth streets are uil(iings with tiny-paned, glazed windows, brick stoops and projecting dormer windows, but over the walls of he Dutch bricks and the tiled chimneys jasijnine and baougainvillea clain- er in riotous profusion and brilliant mtterflies and swift-winged humming )irds flash in and out among the gor- eous flowers. The shaded avenues, )ordered by neat, gabled cottages, remind mo of some northern village, but ooking more closely one finds the no- lle trees are mahogany instead of elms and with strange air plants and bril- iant orchids Covering the branches. ·Tere and there streams and canals ;ross the roadways beneath quaint, steeply arched bridges of brick so thoroughly Dutch in appearance that one looks down at the placid water expecting to sec bluff-bowed canal boats moored to the banks. Instead one looks upon narrow dugout canoes lf hidden in thickets of cactus and cca, while semi-savage Indians ate )usy unloading bananas, cocoanuts ind tropical produce. In stores and shops Dutch cheese ind strings of wooden shoes are side by side with machetes, mangoes, co- coanuls and parrots, and the "bowery" s shaded by a double row of royal palms, but on every hand cleanliness, leatness and Dutch thrift are predominant. Strange nnd picturesque as is Paramaribo itself, yet its cosmopolitan population is far more interesting and remarkable. Here, as in no other spot :n the new world, one may travel from Holland to India, to Africa, to Java, to Japan and China, and back to the wilds of South America in less than an hour and may see the native life, dress and customs of each.

AUTO RACER Is to Wed a Chicago Girl This Evening to Cap a Romance. Vote for LANE--SQUARE BEAT,. CHICAGO, March 4.--A romance- one year old-- will culminate this evening in the marriage of Louis Arthur Disbrow, auto racer, and Miss Harriet May Henry. A year ago Miss Henry was in Los Angeles; so was Loula Disbrow. Louie's mind was very much on the race track. -Miss Henry's thoughts were very much away from it. With nothing much else to do Miss Henry accepted an invitation from friends to go to the' auto tournament. Louie, still in his driving clothes, met Miss Henry. It was love at first sight--at least on Ixmie's part--for the next day he asked Miss Henry to marry him. But Miss Henry didn't quite know; in fact, she thought auto racing too dangerous for th man she would marry. "I knew that if I didn't stop. Louie's racing before we were married, he wouldn't stop until I was wearing widow's weeds, and I couldn't bear the thought of that," Miss Henry said today. "Louie's wanting to marry me and the fact that I convinced him he was capable of much bigger and better j things than auto racing accounts for i his giving up the speed track." Six weeks ago Ixrale wired from Cleveland to Miss Henry in' Chicago for her to be ready to "carry out your part of the bargain." "I'm ready," Miss Henry wired back. Louie caught the next tram for Chicago, the day was set, aad since both have been busy getting ready for thft wedding. "It is Louie's untiring devotion to tne that won me," Miss Henry said, and almost admitted that if he hadn't Kiven In mx weeks ago she would have "HIGH FINANCE" UNEARTHED IN NEW YORK taken him anyway--racing or no racing. The marriage ceremony takes pla'ce at 6:30 this evening In the English room at the Blackstone hotel. Only a few relatives and intimate friends will attend. They will leave for Cleveland at once, where Louie is the president of an auto sales company, Iti August Mr. and Mrs. Disbrow will spend several weeks cruising with friends on the Atlantic coast.
