"Vote tho full Republican ticket: d.

this prcsldcn'ial year; follow the ad
vice of President Roosevelt, and close
up the party ranks and present a soil.,

That In a "sentence expresses thr
general policy of Republicans of thin
state as evinced on every hand, and
the efforts of Democrats and assistant

In the congressional, senatorial and

Much lo at 8take.
Republicans who are Interested In
the pcrpotuatlon of Republlcau poli
cies to which all tho prosperity the
country has ever enjoyed it due, are
reminded that It would bo a serious
mistake on the part of any ono hold
ing those views to neglect his duty at
next Tuesday's election, when by such
neglect a Democrat should be elected
who would bo suro to voto, whothcr In
the legislature or congress, against
Republican measures in which the
country is interested.
No greater disaster could befall the
country than the election of a Demo
cratic congress. It should be patent
to all Republicans that not moro than
one Democrat could be elected to con
gress from this state unless through
the neglect or disloyalty of Ropubll-
cans to their party nominees. No man
calling hlmBelf a Republican should
bo willing to bo a party to assist the
Democrats in an effort to embarrass a
Republican administration, and this he
would do by neglecting to vote the
straight Republican ticket on Tuesday
