Some bankers object to. twstal
savings banks for the reason that
such institutions will compete with
their business, and they say that i
unfair. Their argument does not
appeal with much force to the
orintcr. Fprseveral years the gov
ernment has been competing with
the printer and beating him out of
thousands of dollars of business
every year by priming business
cards on envelopes. WJiat's saucv

Senator Forakcr of Ohio is out
for the republican presidential nom

ing his candidacy he shows clcarlv
that he is the tool and servant of
all those reactionary forces that
have been fighting Roosevelt in his
stand for clean government and
honest and square business tuetb
ds. If, by some hook or crook,
Foraker should secure the republi
can nomination the dishonest cor
porations and high "financiers"
could go serenely on their way
robbing the people with never a
fear of punishment. But Forakcr
will never be president. If the re

mistake of nominating a man
whose sympathies arc with the
"System," Ilryan would sweep the
country like wildfire. However,
there is not much danger that the

arc the safest, besides which, it is
to them you would go if you wanted
a favor, and not to a city bank.

The irrigationist is a progressive
man while his brother in the East
is in a rut and can not get out. The
irrigator makes more on hit small
farm than the dry land man on his
hundreds of acres. The irrigator
has the social benefits to be derived
y a thickly settld community and
association for himself and family
with other cultured people. He
has the benefit of the best schools
for his children from the time they
begin thefr education until they
have entered the college or univer
sity. This fa true because of the
dcuse population and the wealth of
tin irrigated section, which enables
