THE POLITICAL POT
By F. J. Kupfer.
Tho actora arc now beginning
to rehearse their parts on the
political stage. They are prompt
ed by their managers and
coached to play the part to which
he or she is assigned to meet
the annrobation of the populace.
Ambition in the human breast
iaone of the frailities of nature.
To bo admired and praised for
deeds to better the fellow man
lurks in the minds of every one
who prides himself of his own
importance to lead and show the
way for weal or woo. And such
being tho case in this free and
grand republic the constitution
provides that we arc all equal
and to tho manner born; that
we have the right of free speech,
free proas anu free thoughts.
These guarantees tiuugn are
used only at the discretion of
thoso who are or may be in the
possession of an official capacity
which tho public grants them nt
stated poriods Wo speak of
constitutional rights, and then
wo are conBtnntly being romin
dud by the politicians that wo
must fight for freo speech and
a free press. Wc have not
fathomed this particular doctrine
vfhy tiiis is necessary when tho
declaration of independence tolls
us that wo arc a free and inde
pendent people. Hut then as I
have started this article with
the forthcoming national play
to no enacted ly a now and un
tried set of actors in which
they will stagn that culobratod
American play entitled " Re
form, Efficiency, Economy and
tho Duties of an American
Citizon," wo will expuctto huar
from each and ovory actor a
complete mid versatile erudition
of his policies, bin views, his
methods, and ho possibly may
forgot himself to depict uncon
sciously tho intricacies of what
is required in the makeup of a
roul and genuine exponent of the
principles of American citizen
ship. ; Tho public, in the near
future, should prepare itself to
sou the political show in all its
pristine glory. In a verv fow
weeks the Drama will have it
quota and each participant will
havo thoroughly mastered his
plea for man's and woman's suf
frago. Of course wo all want to
be there and thotimuscL and nil-

The star performers in this
great American drama are quite
a few in numbers. In fact we
are told that 5 presidental cand
idates will be listed on the pro
gramme, bach and every one
are prize winners in their re
spective occupations which they
are in at the present time.
Those who aro next in rank and
will not have, according to tho
Otiiia board prophcies antagon
