JT ETB OFFICIAL NEWSPAPEB OF LJYIA'GSTON COUNTY iFPICIAJL NEWSPAPER OF THE CITY OP CHBLLICOTHE That the Adamson eight-hour law will result in a speeding up of f r e i g h t schedules 25 per cent, with the effect that freight will-move that much faster to' market, with great benefit tc the shippers and saving to the railroads, was an. excellent point made in a speech in Chicag-o by Vf. G. Le-3. National President ot the Brother- 'hood of Trainmen. That the slowness and dilotoriness freight traffic is universally complained of by the shippers and is a source of constant loss to the railroads is a fact that only needs to he mentioned to be recognized. It results not only in the farmers often getting- their products to their destination too late to take advantage of a favorable mar. Icet, but often, in case of fruits, dairy products and other perishable articles it causes a dead loss. Not only will these evils be avoided ."by faster freight schedules, but the car shortage will be relieved in the same proportion, since the existing number of cars will be able to do one- fourth more business than under the present schedules. The more the eight-hour law is'dis- cussed and analyzed, the more beneficial its principles appear and the weaker the objections raised against it. It is, as Mr. Lee and other speakers and writers have clearly shown, an "efficiency measure" -- the very thing that the shippers are calling for and that great business of every sort DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL TICKET. ^or President -WOODROW WILSON Tor Vice- President -THOMAS R.

It is a logical conclusion, it is- ce- tain that this law is going to result in greater efficiency in the shipping service of railroads, much more car- tain than that H is going t o cause an increase in freight rates^ The exper. jence of every business shows thai 1 increase in efficiency does not mean an increase in cost or rates but means . increased returns. THE PRESIDENT. There's a man who is running for President, And you soon will hear the good news, That the present one will be reelected And we won't have no use for friend Hughes. There is no mother wants her dear boy in war, For she never has taught him to fight She would much rather have him near to her side When the glorious sun sets at night, There is surely no man on land or sea Who can vote but what will say There never was a better man To rule this TJ. S. A. He truly has kept us out of war, So don't vote the other fello-w in, | For if you do, you surely -will find That the firing squad will begin/ To shoot down our boys that -we dearly love And then how sorry you'll feel To think you voted the wrong man in Bnt when it's too late you cannot ^ squeal. So when we look at Old Glory Waving beneath the blue sky, Let ns say to ourselves sincerely That means a vote for you and I. So on November the seventh Vote for Woodrow Wilson to a man, And let the space between him and Hughes Be Just as -wide as it can. He does not 'hrag about what he has done, ^' But keeps on doing and travels for miles To tell the good people the condition that exists And they meet him with hand-shake? and smiles t We need a man that is a friend To the high and lowly station, So give him your vote and for four years more He will be at the head of our nation. Now every man on the railroad, And see that none are selected. But man for man if he -would hold his job Have Wilson re-elected. TV'e know that the millionaires in New York Have plenty of money to spend. But why don't the men get out out and fig-ht it themselves They know they'll get beat in the end. But they'll send out their women to scare up some votes In the sunshine and the rain, Ent all the money that they will spend Will be a boost for Wilson's campaign. So the G. O. P. might as well quit, For the very best men -will enroll Their names on the states all over the states I vTben they carry their vote to the | polls. Wilson, is a grood man, let us keep him We kno-w he has done us no wrong. So go to the polls and give him your vote And then -we can sing this song: Woodrow Wilson is the man, To summarize, it may reasonably be expected that the eight-hour law for railroads wHl mean that freight will be handled more efficiently and more expeditious!}- ; that a large~r volume of business will be done with the same number of cars and men, -with a resultant gain to the railroads; that freight will reach its destination more Rexall Stores Straw Vote Who Is going to be elected-Hughes or Wilson? That is the question. The Eexall Straw Vote will tell you. How, because it is National in scope. No straw vote ever taken before was national in character. NO one ever had the organization to do it before. How 2can the Rexall Company do it? Because vv'e have over 8 0 0 0 stores located in every state in the Union, in little towns and in cities oÂ£ 6 , 0 0 0 , 0 0 0 . See our windows for results. Bu! letlns coming daily.

The Republicans are predicting the , Bread Line" in cities if Wilson is re-elected; they prophesy calamity to the country _ Yet stock values in all industrial lines advance as the odds on Wilson's election go up; the two advane together. Every factory, every mine, every mill, every bank, every business and every industry (except those grossly mismanaged) is an absolutely incontrovertible refutation of the arguments of the calamity howlers. Ag-ainst the irrefutable logis of actualities--rising values, tremendous industrial -activity, prosperity for the farmer, the laborer, the banker and business man--words, whether spoken or written, even when printed in full.page paid-for advertiments in "great daily papers, are of no avail. The inteligence of the people will decide. Â£18 Webster St., ChilUcothe, Mo. Phones: OÂ«^. 90S. Residence. 1450N Closed livery Tuesday ATKINSON TO PRACTICE! 1AW. John M.

Glover ol St. Joseph said to be a ganvhler, was arrested n t Princeton, Mo., and accused ol: b e i n g j one oC three Fancher swindlers A St. Joseph officer went to P r i n c e t o n to return Glover today. The swinciie practiced on Fanehei is the old "sure thing horse iwce" racket. To ChieC Johnson the f a r m e i said three m.en took a hand in it Fancher had offered his f a r m foi sale, and he says two well-dressed juen came to him one day last wcclr and told him t h e i r iincle in the West might buy the place. A verbal agreement was entered into by Fanchei and the visitors whereby he w o u l d pay them a commission oE $500 ii they effected the sale. They left him and said they would return this weelc to close the sale. Mondon one of the men. appeared at Fancher's home and told him that i h e money had been leceivecl, but h a d been lost on a hors'e race. He said it was placed in St. Joseph o ii a race in the East. "They asked me to stalvc them for another bet," Fancher said, "tellins l i n e that they had .a sure t h i n g . 1 I saw no harm in it, as they appeared to be honest." i i Fancher same to St. Joseph Ty_es- ' day.

Then Fancher met the men a n d turned over the money. Tuesday nighf i they told Fancher they had lost again Â· b u t had a sure thing- if they couM Â·! make another bet. Fancher and t\vo o f ' t h e men drove to Oregon in a mo tor car early "Wednesday morniusr i where he procured another d r a f t for $5.000 on the German-American Bank_ The men r e t u r n e d to St. Joseph 'and at the suggestion ot his n e ' v made friends Fancher took this d r a f f to the Bank of Buchanan County to be cashed. T There also efforts t o keep him from drawing so much cash ai one time -were made. The officer; telephoned Oregon, learned that the d r a f t was good, and it was paid agaio in $10 and $20 bills. To the second d r a f t the names, G. Williams and N. J. Glover, were indorsed. "Williams, the police say, i? Xhe leader of the gang. A f t e r g o l U n s the second $ 5 , 0 0 0 the crooks l e f t Fancher, and only yesterday did i dawn upon him that he liad been victimized. Fancher was staying at the^ Idoux with Williams, and yesterday morning Williams suddenly l e f t t h e 'hotel. Then Fancher 'became suspicious and went;to the police. Officials o f ' t h e Carman-American National Bank and Bank of B u c h a n a n county say" they did not k n o w the man wh o gave the name of Williams Fancher was alone when he went to tne G'erman-American National, and at both banks he refused to tell what he was going'to do with the money.
