Great credit for the success of Dr.

Montague, chairman of the Demo
cratic campaign committee, to whose
untiring and very able efforts and
unfailing good Judgment the result
is in large measure due; and this
meed of praise is especially In order
because Mr. Montague conducted
throughout a perfectly clean cam

means to gain his end. Credit ls
also due to the rest of the committee
by whom he was ably and loyally
assisted in his work. They did a
good Job In the right way and have
a right to be proud of It.
