But in re- cent years the overwhelming majori- ties of the old days have gradually dwindled to such an extent that the district has been figured on for the past two or three gubernatorial elec- tions as in the doubtful class. Why have old time loyal Republi- cans, forsaken their party and voted for Democratic ,candidates I Was it because their cy..v*.aions on party principles had L^U.I cuUi.^od? No, they were regu.~-.;.i; u rebuke on conditions of exi,-;i.ng corruption and ill-practices which had crept into the party and over which they had no con- trol. We might further ask: What accounted for the unbounded success of the Progressive Party, Use ideals and aims of which conform almost identical with the original Republican doctrines, but the same cause ? Whenever officials failed to serve the interests of the people the latter desired a change which was not al- ways accorded them. The boss saw to it that his best servants were re- tained and \The pebple h? .lamned.\ Desire for a change on ti>e pan- of the Republican Party has been fell far some time in this Senatori-il ru-ariet; But despite the protests of the peo- ple James A. Emerso;; ha.; been p'ae- ed before them on the iaiiot term iv- ter term for their careful eonsiilou- tion. And a large number of them have given \Sunny Jim\ careful con- sideration to the extent that his f.rst ^Spjority, the normal one of his party, nti) dwindled from 7000 to less than that many hundred. Still after four terms this same Emerson comes up again for re-nomination. But, the primaries have made it possible for the people of party ties to select their •candidate irrespective of machine or boss rule. And on Monday next the Republican Party through the vote of its enrolled voters will cast aside the Emerson yoke for a man. in whose hands their interests will stand secure, and who will work incessantly for the betterment of the constituency he serves, That man is one of Lake Pla- cid'.-; most foremost citizens, the Hon. George A. Stevens, If ever there was a man in any dis- trict big enough, strong enough and honest enough, to bring about a re- conciliation between tha Republican and Progressive Parties as far as bis own candidacy might be concerned, that man is George A. Stevens, and The Lake Placid News in supporting his candidacy does so from a Progres- sive standpoint with the interests of the people at heart. If the G. O. P. men of the State think *»nd how they feeL He has traveled the country over, and by observation knows what other sections of the country have and what they enjoy and what they want. He is an Adirondack man, born and developed, He knows the other side of the question. He knows what the people of the Adirondacks want and, as one of the largest tax- payers in the three counties compris- ing his district, he knows what they can pay for. Therefore he is in the rare position of a man who knows what may be adapted to his district in the way of legislation and develop- ment, and he knows how much money may be available for the development and how to get the most for the mon- ey, because he is practical. Yet Mr.. Stevens is modest in his pretentions, and retiring in his aser- tions and claims. He comes before the people with a reputation for hon- esty that is above reproach end backed by this high personal record BOULEVARD TO SARANAC AND PAVED STREETS THROUGH PLACID State Highway Connecting Link From Saranac To Ray Brook To Be let VILLAGE TO GRASP OPPORTUNITY FOR PAVEMENT AND CEMENT WALK Great Situation Presents Itself For Placid's Advancement—Hon. James Shea And Forrest B.

Carlisle, State Highway Commissioner, to Lake Pla- cid last Saturday afternoon, as a mem- ber of the New York State Automobile Association, afforded leading citizens any community, are entitled to the greatest consideration, and in my mind the transient business of Lake Placid can be greatly developed,\ The State road will reach to the a splendid opportunity to intelligent- j Stevens hill, and will be, according to ly discuss the construction of the Ray- contract, sixteen feet wide. Mr. Shea : Brook-Lake Placid road and the possi- bility of extending the highway through this village with a higher type of road. As a result Hon. James Shea, pres- ident of the local Automobile Asocia- tion, and Forrest B. Guild, president of the Board of Trade, introduced the subject to the members of the Vil- lage Board at their regular meeting on Monday night with favorable results. It is generally known that propos- als for this road will be received soon after October 1, as the second $5,- 000,000 of the $10,000,000 appropriat- ed by the State for roads will be re- leased on that date, In several well coined thoughts and suggestion was that the proposed pav- ed street be either twenty-four or thir- ty feet wide and have a cement or brick covering. Whether the State will continue the road through the village defraying the expenses of just sixteen feet and any part of the higher grade of ma- terial is a matter for conjecture. However, the members of the Board are very much impressed with the idea, and have taken the matter up directly with the Commission, who will furnish data and figures. If the Board considers the needed improve- ment within the bounds of possibili- ty a proposition v/ill be submitted to the tax-payers for action.
