MUST SIGN. Or Life-Long Republicans will Bolt What a Polk County Newspaper Says There is one proposition with ref- ence to Statement Number 1 that J cannot be dodged or escaped, and that is, that candidates who don't' sign will lose the support of many a voter who wants direct vote for,' United States senators. Republic ans down in Polk county are going to scratch the legislature candidate who doesn't sign, and they are-going to do it in Benton, if any of them have the temerity not to sign. The Independence Westside Enter prise is authority for the statement as to the conditions in Polk, and it is public comment as to the situa tion in Benton. In its last issue the Westside Enterprise, Walter Lyon's paper, says: "The Westside Enterprise speaks a trutn ana sounas a warning in time that safety for any republican candidate lies in his signing the pledge to observe the wish of the people as expressed at the polls in j the election of United States sena I tor. Numbers of " lite-long repub lieans in Polk county have express ed the determination to support no candidate, regardless of politics, who does not agree to support the people's choice for United States senator. They have taken part in placing the present' law on the statute books. This paper is on good terms with all the candidates and has no preference personally and it asks them for the party's sake, to be considerate of the feel ings of the rank and file in the mat ter of the election of United States senators."

The exception noted, a careworn, hungry-looking individual, clad in his last summer's suit slowly arose to his ieet. "How is it, my friend," asked the minister, "that you are the only man who does not jrieet his obliga- tions? "I run a answered, ' stood up newspaper," he meekly 'and the , brethren - who afe my subscribers, and" ' - ' i ' , "Let us pray," exclaimed minister. the Sawnrll for Sale.
