What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

For Vice-President— ARTHUR SEWALL, ipital flowing away t our bright young men. Kansas, our brightest and most pro gressive manhood, is flowing away to Mexico, too. Thoro isn’t a dny that some Kansas young man does not start for Mexico ana thousands have their oyos turned on that prosperous country. Is it not strange, •* ’ sad, that our boys have to loai nativo country and go to live in a for eign lund because they cau’t “do as well” at homo, as thoy can abroad? What a commentary this is on the opportunities in this glorious country that produces everything on earth, that is inhabited by the most intelli gent peoplo on earth, the laud of the free and the homo of the bravo? The laborers of our southern sister republic aro employed; our money is going thoro; our young men of push and brains are going thore. And yet the paid attorney of a corporation that dofrauded this government out of sixty millions of dollars holds up his hands in horror at Mexico! givo us somo of Mexico’s pros perity.

Senator Thurston, tho blatant at torney for tho Union Pacific railway, has been warning tho American la borer against boing “Mexicanizod.” That is his chief argument for Mc Kinley. He holds up two Mexican dollars and loudly exclaims, “ 1 bought troth of theso with < can silver dollar!\ Ho unwittingly pays a high compliment to i American silver dollar,Hjut be d not go on to show that all A merit ; Tho opportnnity is offered tho | democrats of Flatkoad county to delect county officers, but it will be : necessary for them to place in the ! field a strong and clean ticket.

Tkoso who havo gone to the trouble of readiug Thurston’s dia tribes against silver have found only abuse—not a word off argument. Only Inst week Thurston was proved to bo a peddler of slander and of falsehood, when he charged that Air. Bryan was in the pay of silver mine owners. Tho talk of men of Thurs ton’s stripe would hardly be worth notice if it did not consist of contra dictions o f tho statements of bo men. Judge Clark, of the Georgia Blatant ignoramuses of tho Ed- supromo court, visited Mexico. When ward Atkinson stripe are continually ho wont ho was a gold man.
