There are many people In Douglas

last Cleveland administration. Do
I you recall the business conditions
Hint existed at that time, and If so
do you want some more of It. Do you
remember that there was no employ
ment for labor, and that one-half of
tho laboring men In the country

charity, and without shelter.
Do you who were engaged In farm
ing at that time recall that there was
practically no sale for farm products,
and that live stock brought less than
one third that It will now bring in
the market.
Do you recall the fact that the
courts were full of proceedings to
foreclose mortgages, and that In nine
caseB out of ten the party who held
the mortgage was compelled to bid

Do any of you who were residents
or Douglas County during those
years of calamity recall the difficult
culty you had In finding monoy with
which to pny your taxes.. And do
you remember tho long list of de
linquent tax sales published In the
newspapers In those years.
Some of you who lived In the
country adjacent to Rosoburg will
doubtless recall that during those
lenn years a man who was engaged
In delivering wood was fortunate to
get $1.2.1 per tier for It. Not enough
to pny reasonable wages for hauling
It to town. He got nothing for his
wood, or for his labor In cutting It,
but he had to have a little money
with which to buy shoes and grocer
ies, and the man In town who bought
It could not nfrord to pay more.
These were the conditions when
the Democratic party was last In
power. Have you any reason to be
lieve that like conditions will not

stored to power..
Do you recall how ninny houses
were vacant In the towns or the

Compare thoso conditions with pres

Does the man, who has recently
