Only those who registered September 5 can vote next Tuesday.
If you have a personal grouch against some candidate on the Democratic ticket, forget it and vote her straight.
The Democrats of Boone county have a fine opportunity to elect twelve township trustees at next Tuesday's election. Let's make it Straight.
With Senators Shively and Kern and the thirteen Democratic congressmen in Indiana this week the Democrats are making a fine finish of the campaign. Let every Democrat in Boone county add his best licks by closing up the ranks for next Tuesday's contest.
The affairs of Boone county have been honestly and economically managed by the Democratic officials of Boone county, without a cent of loss to the taxpayers, and the only reason that any Republican or Bull Mooser can give why there should be a change is that they want the offices.
Since Miller and Beveridge and their convention delegates who declared for war with Mexico did not offer to enlist, maybe their scheme ■was to have Indiana Democrats sent to the front until after the election. That would have been an army of immense size and wonderful scraps.
Democrats of Sugar Creek and Center townships will find that the Democratic candidates for state, county and township offices are all in the first row on thr machine, and that to vote a straight Oemocratic ticket requires but one operation, the pressing down of the little lever over the emblem at the left of the row indicated by the Democratic emblem— the rooster.
Jim Watson's wail was for Cononel Mulhall with his corrupt-lobby money bags to hurry to Indiana and help rob the people of their self-government. Albert Beveridge wept because Roosevelt was not in Wilson's seat that he hight invade Mexico. The people thank God that Woodrow Wilson is president and the senate and house safely Democratic and the old corrupt standpat lobby out of the capitol.
75,000 FOR STATE TICKET.
The plurality of Senator B. F. Shively and the Democratic state ticket will not be less than 75,000, if the reports that are coming into the state »headquarters are reliable. The outlook as far as the Democrats are concerned seems to be just as good as it.was at this time two years ago when it was conceded on all sides that the Democratic ticket would be re-elected by a greater plurality than ever before.
For the last, few weeks the managers of the Republican campaign have been circulating reports that the Democrats were not interested in their own tickets and that the Democratic vote would show a great loss. These reports were credited by many people owing to the fact that the political meetings generally have been smaller this year than they were two years ago. However, the beginning of the end of the campaign finds the Democrats better organized than ever before and more deeply interested in the outcome of the election than the Republicans suspect.
It appears that a great many members of the party have merely been waiting until the close of the campaign to manifest an interest in the work that is being done by the state committee and by the various speakers. Reports received by Chairman Bert Hendren, of the speakers' bureau, indicate that the meetings within the past week have been as large and possibly larger than they were two years ago. These reports show that even the meetings addressed by speakers who have only a state-wide reputation have been largely attended within the past week.
It is regarded as likely by many of the Democratic leaders that the plurality for their tickets will not be as large as it was two years ago for the reason that undoubtedly many Republicans are coming back into their own party. Many of the Republicans who voted for Roosevelt and Beveridge two years ago because they were sore on account of the way their own national campaign was conducted, will vote their own ticket this time, which naturally would have a tendency of keeping the Democrats from again having a plurality in excess of 100,000. However, all the indications at this time point to a plurality of 75,000 for Senator Shively and about that much for the entire state ticket.Hallowe'enand pay day night!Next Saturday ¡8 a loHf things-week end, monthend, pay day sure, Hallowe'en for the young folks, time for the grown-ups to think of Winter.

Look over the list of Democratic nominees in Boone county. Compare them with the nominees of the opposing parties. You will not find a man on the ticket who is not entitled to your support on the ground of honesty and capability. And then, remember that no Democratic official has ever betrayed the interests of the taxpayers of Boone county. This should be sufficient recommendation for your support of the Democratic ticket.
Governor Ralston, our former fellow citizen and neighbor, enjoys the good opinion of other people as much «8 the rest of us, but that is not the motive that proihpts his doing of things. He simply goes right ahead doing what he makes up his mind is light and lets the opinion part of it take care of itself. Ralston has never been a moral coward. He has stood for what he thought right, both as a citizen and as governor, at times in the face of opposition which might have overcome many strong men. In the end, when reason has taken time to measure results, it has usually developed that Sam Ralston, citizen or Covemor. was right. The record of the legislature of 1913, under leadership of Ralston as governor, was the best record in big things done for the direct benefit of all the people that has ever been made by au Indiana general assembly. The people will support Ralston in his progressive policies, by returning Democratic state senators and representatives, «nd to Insure a session of equal ben-'^flts In 1M5.
The Republican state organization finds itself in position now where it is obliged to rely on James Watson, Charles Fairbanks and other ardent standpatters to whom theProgressives have raised so many objections. As the campaign closes it is evident that the Republican party is under practically the same leadership as it was two years ago and that the Progressives who left the party because they did not like the leadership are not going to be induced to return to it this year. Democratic leaders who liave been touring the state in behalf ot their own ticket regard the Pro-gresBives as more active than the RepnhUcans. Beveridge bids fair to ran ahead of Miller and the Progres-siTe state ticket la l<kely to be second to the Democrats.

Viewing, and still only half realizing the awful condition of affair^ in Europe because of the worst war the world has ever seen, the man who first said "Thank God for Woodrow Wilson" should find an echo in the heart of every man, woman and child in this country. It is only because we have a man like Wilson, backed by loyal Democrats in senate and congress, strong enough to stand the abuse heaped upon him by the interests and by members of opposing political parties in senate and congress, that we are not today mixed in this awful war. Bear in mind, that while the country was passing through a most severe test and at the time when people of all parties should have been backing the president with all support possible. Miller and Beveridge were "declaring for war" and denouncing Wilson and the administration for not ordering our army to the front to be shot at in a conflict that could have accomplished nothing more nor less than to add to the wealth of certain selfish interests that have been accustomed to having the country work for them. Vote for Shively and Morrison, who stand with the president.
Congress adjourned Saturday, after having been in continuous session since the inauguration of President Wilson a year ago last March. It was a record-making session, the greatest achievements of which were the revision of the tariff on a downward basis, the enactment of a currency reform measure embodying regional banks. The regular session begins early in December, when the good work will be resumed under the guiding hand of the most progressive chief executive the country has had in half a century.
Over at Indianapolis where the^ ticket was nominated by primary election, the Democrats named for juvenile judge a man with a police record—John F. O'Brien, who has been going under the name of Frank X. O'Brien. The party managers did themselves proud by setting him off and substituting the present incumbent, Judge Taylor. A delegate convention would never have allowed O'Brien to get by.

ADMINISTRATOR'S SALB OF SONAL PROPERTY.
THE PIONEER ONE YEAR $1.
It is evident now that the Republicans have very little hope of electing any of their nominees for congress. They realize that Hugh Th. Miller, the nominee for United States senator, is hopelessly beaten. This is shown by the fact that the state committee is not making any arrangement for any big meetings for Miller. He is permitted to appear at some of the larger meetings to make a few remarks, but not in the character of keynote speeches. The fact that Miller has been held in the background by the Republican leaders has been commented on so much within the last week that the state committee has attempted to show that meetings are being arranged for him, but at the same time the committee has stated that one. of his meetings was to be at Fort Wayne, where he would appear on the platform with Senator Borah. The latter, it will be recalled, was brought here from Washington to deliver the keynote speech for the Republicans, although he is a senator from Idaho and in no way identified with the politics or general affairs of the state of Indiana.

speedy trials, and creates confidence in the CQurt itself. Any semblance of pettifoggery lowers the court's dig-nity. Especially is this true when juries are being impaneled. Irrevel-ant questions and side remarks addressed to neither the court or the juror should not be permitted in any court. When it comes to electing a judge who shall preside over Boone county's litigation for the next six years, every voter should have these things in mind.
It will be the aim of J. M. Worley, if elected judge to at all times main-' tain the dignity of the court, prevent delays, expedite the handling of litigation, and give every litigant and every litigant's attorney a fair hearing without showing favoritism o^ partiality.
Mr. Worley, through his knowledge of court business, gained not only by, practice at the bar, but by his exper^ ience as a deputy in the county clerk's oflSce, is well qualified to preside ovei the court and put into effect his ideas of court procedure.
Mr. Worley is thoroughly competent] to fill the office to which he aspires.' He has the confidence of the voters and is deserving of their support.

Governor Ralston, upon whom the burden of the speaking campaign in Indiana has fallen by reason of the continued session of congress, cancelled his dates last week long enough to take up the matter of preventing the further spreiid of the live stock disease that is prevailing with such fury in the north part of the state. Ooremor Ralston has always pro-ceded on the theory that his first duty is to all the people. ,To prevent a quarantine against the whole state the most drastic measures have been taken to confine the disease to so
small an area av possible. --#-
