Vol. XX. BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1WS No. 79 INDIANA IS ABLAZE Winchester, Oct. (liana is ablaze for 31.—All In- Bryan. Everywhere he has been greeted by great cheering crowds anil his vigorous denunciation of Rockefeller and Carnegie for their aid to the Republican party has met with spontaneous approval in every town. Bryan is winding up his tour today and he made a statement which Is an appeal to the public. He says the Democratic party is attempting to inaugurate n new are of honesty In poll- tics, by compelling the publication of campaign contributions before election. It seeks to bring the government nearer the people by the election of senators by direct vote; to make private monopoly Impossible; to reconcile labor and capital. It proposes the creation of n department of labor with a secretary of labor in the cabinet. It advocates the amendment to the anti trust lay to exclude labor unions from its application and to limit injunctinos. It proposes a plan to guarantee bank deposits. It advocates a reduction of the tariff. let Taft give a bond to stop the panic now on. The appeal denounces Roosevelt for "using his office as a party asset and dragging it Into the campaign." After his formal appeal to the people of the United States Bryan at this place renewed his attacks on Rockefeller, and Carnegie. Great crowds greeted him everywhere. Mr. Bryan's keynote was that "every trust magnate Is supporting Taft." Tonight Bryan will speak at a xreat meeting in Chicago.

Oct. 31.—Chairman, Mack today authorized the statement j regarding the President's denials of) relations between the "SffmTnlstration and the Standard Oil. He declared that he has "positive proof that for ten days negotiations have been going on between Taft's managers and the jiff on hay has advanced tho price of W.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31.—The gravity of the situation due to Mr. Rockefeller's declaration for Taft has caused the "White House" to Issue another statement In an effort to save the candidate. Mr. Roosevetl says he has many telegrams suggesting that Rockefeller's pledge to Taft Is a Democratic trick, but that it will fall. that product In the Midway oil field | to $20 per ton? And, again, Is it not remarkable that with that same tariff In existence prior to the present open, and I will now add for his benefit, at a very low figure, a fln« line of dried apricots and peaches. Perhaps ho can make something by riding on the tariff band wagon. I can not.

A complaint for forgery will be filed against E, M. Morton, who was arrested yesterday afternoon by Officer Mortensen. The prisoner has a number of aliases and was only released from jail a day or two ago for attempting to pass a forged check of FIGHTING FOR THE iiim- DOUBTFUL STATES. Two Signs on a Harness Shop Over at the • Stoll harness shop, or rather the shop of the United Harness Company, defunct, Is a flaring banner with the words, BANKRUPT SALE. Just below, some local trust party enthusiast has posted on a window a campaign picture of Taft and Sherman with the caption, "VOTB FOR TAFT AND SHERMAN AND REPUBLICAN PROSPERITY." The attention ol Judge Itlnck or Colonel Blood is called to the incongruity of the two signs. It is a condition and not a theory that confronts them. The condition cannot be well remedied, but It might be wise not to permit such an object lesson to knock the prosperity theory. Better move the picture to some position less suggestive. L. G. Sarnow.

Oct. 31.— New York, Indiana and Illinois, with a total of £t electoral votes, said to be regarded as doubtful, are the scene of final desperate fighting on the last day of the last week of the campaign. On them Taft and Bryan are focusing their efforts. Taft continued Ills tour of New York, beginning at Elmira. He Is scheduled for speeches In Oswego, Blnghampton, Gortland, Ithlca and tonight at Rochester. Bryan is in Indiana after a busy day yesterday In Ohio. Kern also is In Indiana. Tonight a Bryan meeting will be held In Chicago. Sherman will speak in New York City today. it Is now? Of course, hungry horses or cattle <vith capacious maws have nothing to do with the price of hay. Of course, supply and demand are in no way responsible.—nothing whatev. or causes it but the glorious tariff. Wiiy should we doubt It? Has not the morning paper proclaimed It so? Now, Mr.. Editor, where In heaven's name, would hay come from to compote In the Midway, Marlcopa or other obscure mining sections of our county, with the local product of hay? Could Canada, producing one sparse crop, ship it to Kern County and sell it at a profit for $20 a ton, even If there was no tariff to pay on It? Could hay be brought from Australia M'CLINTOCK 'MAKES A fiOOUJECORD H. H. McCllntock. superintendent of the southern division of the Standard Oil Company, has written an Interest- Ing letter to the Diamond Rubber Company of San Francisco, stating that on his last set of Diamond tires he had and dumped Into "the Kern County to sell and need the money to pay for the investing of the fruit. And still the tariff falls to bring me buyers. What about the great financial depression of 1892, when laborers by the thousands, all over the country, from Maine to California, and froa the Canadian boundary to Florida were thrown out of employment, and when the few laborers who were employed In Kern county received but 75 cents a day for their services? That was during a Republican administration, and while so much has been said about the serious conditions during Cleveland's administration It should be remembered that those con- covered 14,'100 miles, having during all that time but two punctures and finishing this record with the. original air In two of the tires.

No, It could not. Then could Chill be a factor in holding prices down? Noj assuredly, no. The talk of protection to the Kern County hay growers by the tariff Is about as unwholesome rot as the American people have been called upon to shock their olfactory sense with for a long time.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 31.— A threatened outbreak by a company of Turkish troops In the garrison at Yllrtlz Kiosk was promptly put down by a single volley from a loyal battalion from Salonlkl. Three of the mutineers were killed and many wounded. The surrendered mutineers •were made prisoners and later were tied together and exhibited In the public square In the presence of the assembled troops as an example. MORLEY'S THEATER HAS A GOOD PROGRAM. Morley's Theater this week is showing a funny picture entitled "His First Frock Coat." It is without a doubt one of the most lautihnble ever shown by a moving picture show. The funny film Is the feature number of a fine program. "FORCED PAYMENT" IS A PERFORMANCE. \ thoroughly enjoyable performance was given last night by the Cunningham company. "A Forced Payment" Is a strong piece and requires more acting than In any previous bill. Miss Cunningham was very clever In the part of Mrs. Brooks and deserves much praise for her emotional work. She really had her first opportunity to display her ability since opening here and proved to the public that she Is more than a very clever actress. At the climax of tht third act she and Mr. Brackett were forced to respond to many curtain calls. _ __ CHICAGO.

Mr. Pedlar found that they had eaton seed wheat treated with parls green for rust.

I saw at least Fiiiim sheep dead in tho rlvor bed and under the trestle of the S. P. R. R. where that road crosses tho Kern Ulvi-r. Cattle and horses by the thousands were slaughtered by, llielr owners from Del Norte to San j Diego, from the fact that thoy could ! not obtain food for them. But I will state that during that time of depression, hay, which we are told tho tariff It was the result of Republican mis | way field, was selling for fully as much horo; and yet I don't bollovo I that any one tried to cram the pro- Idncers thon with the story that the then existing tariff was responsible | for It. Occasionally the K( ho refers to what ttie tariff has done for tho rals- [ In grower. Bosh! The raisin grower is naturally an optimist, elso ho would lonjx ago have routed up his vines and thrown them away. The fact Is that for the past fifteen yoars tho raisin grower of California has ( made, nothing. | Tho Echo asserts dint I am not, suf.', ficlently experienced In farming to | give an Intelligent opinion on the matter of tariff and tho profits of the ! farm. I might retaliate by saying I that tho editor of the Echo in not suf- ' ficlently experienced In tho needs of j the people lo be entrusted with their' Interests In Congress, but I will j merely assort that even an Inferior : farmer might ho competent to know i when he receives good prlcos for his! products and when he can secure a< ready market for tho same. | I offered a nhort time ago to soil I my ralsltiB to tho editor of the Echo | at 3Vi cents per pound, and let him drop thorn Into the 4 cent market that ho had discovered the tariff had provided for us, but up to th llcan parade will be reviewed by Sherman.
