Oct. 2Cth. The man who should bo
elected Sheriff of Wayne county this
year is M. Leo Hraman, of Ilonesdale.
He is a man of the right stamp, with
backbone, and a man who owns him
self and will not be controlled by any
political clique. And another reason why
lie should be elected is because he is a
man of excellent habits, strictly temper
ate, and for that reason alone he should
and will get a good vote in Sterling
township. He is pretty well known in
the Southern part of the county, and the
general impression is that he will make
a good ollicer, and, like the candidate
for Prothonotary, is not soliciting oi
purchasing votes, but stands on his
merits and believes in a square deal.
We have a few conservative Democrats
among us who will support M. Lee (Ira
nian for Sheriff and W. J. Hames for
Prothonotary, and they will both get the
full Republican vote in the Southern
part of the county. We do not wish to
say one word against M. .1. Hanlan as
an ollicer. lie is certainly a good and
accommodating man, hut we think down
here that he has been well taken care of
by the people of Wayne county, and
ought to step down and out and give the
other fellow a chance. His opponent,
W. .1. Panics, made a very favorable
impression on his trip through here last
week, and I think changed the minds of
many who intended to vote for Hanlan,
but now will support Wallace .1. Hames.
Our old friend Thomas C. Madden is
in the Held for re-election. He is one of
our kind, a straight Republican, and
will receive a full vote from the Repub
licans with many Democrats in South
ern Wayne. He is known among us as
a straight-forward business man, and
having served one term as County Com
missioner, and the tax payers cannot
say one word against him, or the pres
ent board of Commissioners, and the
general opinion is that they ought to be
re-elected, and from all appearances
(hey will be.
Another important ollice to be filled is
that of Representative. The candidate,
Warren F. Perhani, has been before the
people of Wayne county before, and is
well known in every nook and corner of
Wayne county. He is engaged in farm
ing and is the man to look after the
farmers' interests at Harrisburg.
These are the men we believe are
worthy of the support of the best citi
zens of Wayne county. Those who
know them best speak of them in the
highest terms as good citizens, good
neighbors and worthy of the support of
all voters, and should they be elected
we can rest assured that they will per
ioral the duties of their ollice to the sat
isfaction of the people of the county.

Special Correspondence.
Philadelphia, Oct. 27.
The final call to action has been
lountlcd ami Republicans throughout
Pennsylvania arc lined up to a man to
meet the common enemy on Tuesday
next, when a successor to Thcodoro
Itoosevclt will be elected.
From reports rocelvcd from tho
most reliable sources, the great Amer
ican people have decided to elect that
t,icat American, William Howard Taft,
lo preside over tho destinies of tho
nation for the next four years, and
fiom tho most trustworthy Information
that can be gleaned from ovory county
And borough of this commonwealth,
the grand old Kcystono state will, as
heretofore, bo the banner Republican
state In the Union.
"Pennsylvania will do her full duty
on Tuesday next," declared Colonel
V-'esley R. Andrews, chairman of tho
Republican stato committee.
"Prom every section of tho state I
have today received reports by tele
graph and telephone which leave no
room to doubt that thcro will bo a
glorious victory recorded at tho polls

"Pennsylvania will bo true to Repub
lican principles and policies nnd will

Great Interests at Stake. '
"All thoughtful men realize that tho
nation is now facing a crisis In ita
history, In which there Is moro at
stake for Pennsylvania than there has
been at any other election within tho
last twenty-five years.
"Tho voters of this country nro to
day confronted with the promises and
speculations of an Irresponsible and
shifty politician, who will promlso any.
thing for tho purposo of Influencing
votes, no matter what ho may really
think of tho Issues Involved. Ho Is not
sincere In his professions and changes
hts position upon the slightest pro
tort in order that ho may win popular
favor In any direction or among any
class of voters.
"I have too much faith In tho com
mon sense of tho American peoplo,
however, to for a moment bollevo that
they would elevate a man of that
character to a position of power and
Influence, where ho could, through his
cabinet appointments, revolutionize
the financial system and banking
methods to tho serious disruption of
the business of the country, and where
ho woulS bo empowored to select men
for tho United States supreme bench
who would pass upon his queer col
lection of 'Isms,' which have been tho
wonder of tho entire world.
American Voters Wide Awake.
"I believe that tho property Interest,
(Treat and small, would In his election
to tho presidency recelvo a setback
from which they would not recover
tor years. He has never oxhtblted evi
dence of even tho most common-place
statesmanship. His utterances aro
vagaries and, to quote his own words,
ho Is 'even more radical than he was
In 189C If this means anything, It
means that ho as on unsafe man to en
trust with the commercial and busi
ness Interest of the United States.
"I have no fear that tho averago
American voter Is not alive to the sit
uation." Chairman Andrews has boen fairly
overwhelmed with applications for
speakers to address Republican rallies
throughout Pennsylvania, and he has
been particularly fortunate In being
able to procure somo of the most prom.

mittee Senator Penrose's position

of Inestimable value In advancing tho
work of the campaign In this state.

these gatherings Is but another Indi

Senator Philander Chaso Knox, by
Ms speech delivered In Philadelphia
teat week, coiled forth comsaeadftUca
mt woraft, trem rrwldeat Xssmo-
t, who Isomedlately wrote a letter
supplementing tfeo remarks of tho
Junior senator trots this state.
Senator Knox, In discussing the
Bryanlto scheme to guarantee bank
doposlta, said among other things:
"What ars bank deposits? They are
Bums of monoy that the depcslto?
lends to hts banker and which his
banker agrees to repay to him on de
mand unless thero Is some contract
for notice. There Is not a particle of
difference In law between a deposit
with a banker and a loan to an Indi
vidual. Of courso. It Is claimed thnt
thero Is a difference, and I was se
verely criticised In somo sections for
disclosing this view In tho senate last
winter, but this criticism was politics.
Some editors and orators say tho poo
pics' deposits belong to tho peoplo be
cause that sounds well. c
"The law, however, says they are
loans by tho peoplo to tho bankers
and create the relation of dobtor and
creditor between tho bank and the
depositor, and. It Is upon this theory
that the affairs of Insolvent banks are
settled. No man can walk Into a sus
pended bank and lay bis hand on a
note .and say, that Is mlno, I deposited
It. All ho can do Is to present hts
claim for his deposit to the receiver
and he will get his pro rata of tho
assets with other creditors of his cIbsb.
If this Indisputable truth wore more
generally remembered, it might make
people a llttlo moro caroful In select
ing the bank to which they loan their
"Now It Is proposed that this pri
vate contract between banker A and
depositor D shall bo guaranteed by
others who had no hand In making It,
no voice In controlling the use of the
money, and no responsibility for or
check upon the dishonesty or Incom
petency which caused Its loss.
Question of Everybody's Debts.
"Upon what basis of sense or mor
als, to say nothing of constitutionality,
docs such a proposition rest; and why
if bonkers nro compelled by law to
pay other bankers' debts should we
stop there and not require all other
classes of business to guarantee the
debts of the members of their class?
"13 there anything particularly sa
cred about tho surplus money a man
accumulates and deposits with his
banker? It stands upon no higher
ground than the claim of the mill
worker who has given his labor, his
all, not his surplus, to the mill owner
who falls to pay him. and yet I hear
of no suggestion to corap-' tho mill
owners to guarantee each other's pay
"Does It stand upon any higher
ground than tho debt duo to tho widow
and tho orphan by an Insolvent In
surance company to which for years
annual premiums have been paid
pinched out of an all too slender In
como by self-denial and sacrlflco to
provide against Inevitable loasT Yot
I have heard of no proposition to mako
Insuranco companies guarantee each
other's policies."
A Tribute to Penrose.
In his peroration, Senator Knox
"I conclude as I began by urging
you to fully consider tho Import of
what you are about to do. The Issues
of this campaign present a great op
portunity for tho peoplo of Pennsyl
vania to give fresh proof of their pa
triotism, intelligence and loyalty to
the great party of Lincoln, Grant, Mc
Klnley, Roosevelt and Taft. Locally,
let us Indorse the splendid adminis
tration of Governor Stuart, return to
congress the party's nominees and
elect a legislature that will keep In
the senate my modest colleague who.
manfully Ignoring unjust criticism, hoc.
by his arduous, useful and devoted
service to the nation and tho state,
won for himself tho hearty good-will,
admiration and respect of right think
ing men."

The Era of New Mixed Paints !

dition brought about by our enterprising dealers to get some kind
of a mixed paint that would supplant CM I li'ON'S MIXED

may find a sale with the unwary.
There are reasons for tho pre-eminence of CHILTON PAINTS:
1st No one can mix a bettor mixed paint.
2d The painters declaro that it works easily and lias won

3d Chilton stands back of it, and will agree to repaint, at his
