Editor - and - Proprietor
Mr. Garland is making a tlior
ough canvass. He has a large
audience wherever he speaks. Hie
canvass is making him many votes.
The indications are that he will be
elected by a lurge vote. His ad
dresses are plain, polite and con
vincing. He deals in no abuse,
but strikes at the root of the evil of
county affairs extravagance in
office. The people are fast coming
to the conclusion that he is a safe,
conservative and able man, who
will manage the county's business
in an economical manner, free from
prejudice or favoritism. A vote
for Garland is a vote for strict
economy and low taxes.

have resolved, "That it is the
judgment of this board that the
State Board of Public Instruction
should take measures to introduce
into the public schools of this state
a rudimentary line of instruction
in horticulture, as the essential
elements of our education to fit
men and women for intelligent
labor on the farm and in the

and rest assured that he will serve
the best interests of the people.

If elected, to industriously use all
honorable means within his power to
bring about the following legislation:
The re-enactment of the mortgage tax
law; to confine all state officers to the
amount fixed by the state constitution;
to utterly clean out and dispense with
all the unnecessary tax-eating commis
sions now in vogue, and to decidedly
favor all legislation possible for the
relief of the taxpayers. On the all
absorbing question of money, he de
clares himself in favor of the greatest
possible use of silver that can be
reached without disturbing Its parity
with other money; and that the use of
silver can be greatly increased without
interfering with Its relations as a legal
tender and its purchasing powers.
