Rumblings deep and distinct which foretell of- a mighty change are heard on every hand and come from every direction. At times they are distant, but uever uncer tain, always telling the same story and telling it in tones so clear that the meaning can not be mistaken. iMany revolntions have taken place iu the past', causing thrones to tot ter and empires to crumble into ruins, btit no past revolution has effected a change so great, so far reaching in its possibilities, as the change that is presaged by these rumblings. The change that is coining is revolutionary, more sn than any of its predecessors, but only socially so. They were invar iably confined to a siugle people or a country, and only affecting those who were directly interested, while the coming change is wide-spread and universal, a world movement that will affect all mankind.

SCOTT COUNTY RICHER. VOL. 7 BENTON, MO., JUNE ao, 1908. NO. 33 Observations by the Kicker The Socialist Party and What it Stands far. A Clear Cut Platform that Says what it Means and Means What it Says. No Dodging:; No Compromise. 1 am going to undertake gome tiling that no Democratic or Re publican editor will dare to do the intelligent explanation of his party platform. In fact, he couldn't if he would, for their platforms are usually meaningless. But the So cialist platform is clear-cut and its meaning cannot easily be misun derstood. 1. It declares for "the national - owuership of railroads, telegraphs, telephones, steamships, and all other means of transportation and communication." I think you will admit the wisdom of this. It is as necessary for the people to own their railroads as it is the dirt roads. We have wiped out the toll dirt roads, why not wipe out the toll railroads. One is as necessary to the public as the other. The tele graph and telephone are likewise public ne...

What Does the Democratic Party Stand for that the Republican Party Opposes, Excepting Jobs? The other evening a group of Democrats were discussing the Re publican nominations and their platform when I asked the question : "What' does Bryan stand for that Taft does not stand fort" After a painful pause one ven tured: "You know Bryan is against government by injunction." So I presume here is the "ishoo" that fourteen million voters are to fight over. It does not concern us of the country at all. Because of the Chicago, strike and the impris onment of Eugene Debs, it was put in the Democratic platform of 189G to catch the union labor vote. At Chicago, last week, the Republicans adopted what they will try to palm off on labor as an anti-injunction plank, but it means nothing. At one end of the plank they promise labor better treatment, and at the other end they take it all bac...
