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.

'IiPraisiet s Con \WATCHFUL WAITING\ WINS ' (From the Pttsburgh Gazette -Times (Standpat Republican, United States Senator George T. Oliver, of Pennsylvania, Owner and Editor.) 'President Wilson should be trusted to steer the American ship of state free of the infinite na- tional perils of Europe's gigantic embroilment. Let us not forget that, Much as game was made of his policy of 'watchful waiting' with regard to Mexico, it is now almost universally conceded that that proved to be the wise course. Imagine us at war with Mexico at this juncture, \vith Eu- rope in the death grapple of the centuries!\ What is your program if you are returned to power? Would you re-establish the old paquership between cor- rupt politics and corrupt business? J Which laws enacted -by the democrats would you repeal? Would you repeal the income tax? Would you take a backward step on the 'Parcel post? Would you restore schedule K of the Paine -Aldrich - Smoot tariff? Would you repeal ,the federal reserve act, for which so many of your senators and representatives voted? Would you restore the panic -breeding, currency laws that made possible the great industrial and financial disaster of 1907? • Would you repeal the Lever agriculturai extension bill, against which not a republican yoted in either house or senate? Would you put down again the pipe lines, which Woodrow Wiisson has taken up, connecting the special interests with the seat of government? Would you summon Mulhall and his fellow -lobbyists back to the halls of congress? Would you repeal the federal trade commission act, against which not a republican voted in the house of representatives? Would YOU repeal the Clayton anti-trust act, which sup- filements and strengthens the Sherman law, and for which 41 republican representatives and 6 republican senators voted? Would you repeal the democratic labor laws. fqr which so , many or your representatives in congress voted? Would you repeal the Alaska railroad act and once more endeavor to deliver Alaska to the Guggenheims? Would you return to your old policy of throttling the farmer by failing to deposit government funds in country banks at crop -moving time? Would you return to Cannonism in the house of repre- sentatives? Would you repeal the seamen's bill, which passed both house and senate by acclamation? Would you repeal the Bryan peace treaties? Would you substitute \Dollar Diplomacy\ for \Watchful ,,Waiting\? Do you repudiate Root, Lodge, Cummins, Kenyon, Brady, , Jones, Clapp, La Follette and a host more of your leaders for voting for Wilson measurqs? Do you repudiate every republican newspaper that has praised Woodrow Wilson's handling of the Mexican situatiod? Do you endorse the action of those republican leaders who excoriated the president for not o seizing Mexico city at the point of the bayonet when they knew that by doing so he would have produced in the western hemisphere what there is in the east- ern hemisphere— HELL ON EARTH? United States Senator Myers has !issued an address to the people of Montana telling why sts they. should { support the democratic candidates this fall.

A vote for the democratic ticket is a vote for Woodront A vote for any other ticket is a vote against Woodrow Wil- son. If you believe that the president is worthy of support, you should render him that support by voting to return to congress men who have loyally stood by him in every crisis. Consider, for a moment, what Woodrow Wilson, in less than two years has done for the American people. He has reduced the tariff, under which ,heretofore the many were taxed for the benefit of the few. Would you prefer that the present Underwood tariff law, under which every man is given an equal opportunity, should be repealed and the notor- ious Payne -Aldrich tariff, emphatically repudiated by the peo- ple in 1910 and 1912, be re-enacted? - A vote against the democratic ticket means a vote for the restoration of the Payne -Aldrich tariff law. President Wilson has reformed the currency, taking away from Wall street the control of the nation's money and credits. Would you prefer to have the present currency law repealed and in its stead re-enacted the antiquated measure we inherited from the Civil war and under which it was possible for a group of New YorT bankers to force a panic upon the country At will? A vote for the democratic ticket means a vote for thl present currency law and a vote against the return to Walt street control of the country's finances. • President Wilson has brought about the' establishment of an income tax, whereby the wealthy are made to bear their+ proper share of the burden of taxation. Would you prefer that the present income tax be repealed and rich stockholders and bondholders permitted to contribute less to the support of the government than the laboring man? A vote for the democratic ticket is a vote for the income tax law and a vote against the tax dodg r. President Wilson has driven the lobbyists from the halls of congress. Would you prefer the return to the, old system, whereby every big interest in the country maintained their paid representatives in Washington and in many instances had their own paid lawyers draft the bills which were enacted by our law- makers? A vote for the democratic ticket is a vote against the lob- byists. President Wilson has saved millions of treasure and thou- sands of young American lives by refusiaq to atteMpt the con- quest of Mexico. and by maintaining a firm attitude of neutral- ity in the European war.- Woufd-you. prefer that -we -had .arr Ministration that would have plunged this country 'into a de- vastating war, wrecked its commerce and despoiled its people?

Too much apathy and a spirit of indifference exists, particularly with the voters. Should equal suffrage succeed in this state, it can be attributed to the lack of interest with the voters, and in that event, a burden is imposed up- on the women, and those women who are opposed to equal suffrage Must submit to a condition that is not of their making. There appears to exist in the minds of the suffragists the idea that our reason for opposing equal suffrage is that we are prejudiced. In that reaped, we hope to disabuse their minds of that fallacy. Life is not .(Continued on page Five.) worth living without woman; she is as big a factor in this life as man, and is man's equal. Not man's equal In a political sense, but man's super- ior in most of the virtues that tend to a purer and better life, and we, anti -suffragists do not stand second to any one in our admiration for a woman, nor do we allow any male suffragist to excel us in our admir- ation, courtesy and respect to wom- ankind. No doubt to a suffragist, this would appear ridiculous. On the other hand we would say it would appear ridiculous that male suifra,gista_could not realize the many virtues -Of our. womankind. We make mention of the foregoing merely to illustrate that we are loyal, and that we are the best friends the suffragists have.
