Other candidates Introduced at th« meeting were Vincent Bell of Fulton, candidate for state's attorney, Henry C. Allen of Lyndon and George C. DlKon of Dixon. candidates for the state legislature. Mrs. Mary E. Busey of Urbana, candidate •for university trustee, was unable to be present, rtoy E. McKenzie of , Tamplco, chairman of th« county central committee, presided and introduced the speakers. He urged everybody to vote and to get their neifhbors to go to the polls. W. K. Johnson. Congresaman Johnson said that the present tariff furnished protection (or agriculture but the Underwood tariff permitted agricultural products to enter the United States duty free, and thousands of torn of frozen beef and other products were shipped here from other countries before the preacnt tariff was put in force. Protection by immigration laws against foreign labor, he said, was especially needed now, and charges he charged Qov. Smith with favoring in the immigration laws. Congressman Johnson said would admit almost all of the 16,000,000 people of foreign lands now registered for emigration to the United States. The congressman won applause by stating that, not only Bhould immigration laws be effective against admitting greater numbers of foreigners, but he favors a law now being formulated to get rid of a number of thousands already here, by shipping back, to the land they came from. aU unnaturalized foreigners who are convicted of serious offenses against our lawn. He also a*ld that if GOT. Smith wished to claim tliat the democratic Administration "bequethed" two billion dollars to the republicans, the governor should also admit that this remnant of the immense sums gathered during a war time administration was also accompanied by a — debt of some 3a-i>iHion-ttoiiarsrainf that the republicans should be credited with great business ability it they were able to use the two billions left by the democrats in such a way that 'they"" have be«n able to pay off nine billion dollars worth of debts with It. He cited incidents of Tammany control over prominent New York democrats at Washington and advised against extending that control to the White House, concluding with a strong plea for support for Herbert Hoover for president Senator OUa F. Glenn. Senator Glenn reviewed the democratic "paramount issues" of the past, slavery, free trade, free silver and imperialism, of which the party candidate says nothing in this campaign. None of these issues having been, effective in ''saving the country," the speaker said the democratic candidate had made bis own issue in this campaign, regardless of the platform, and proposes to save the country with liquor. This has brought about the spectacle of dry democratic caneuoates for congress and the senate in many places being supported on the ground that they will prevent the democratic candidate for president from doing what he wants to do with the prohibition lav. He said he was glad he did not have to go before the people with a promise, if elected, that he would prevent Herbert Hoo- thai hnp*<; in '"H« t it /--'-rn" tn f! !<S.ftti* frr>m th*>* Orsnt sr>'* I Into fb* serial w .
