THE POLITICAL POT
By F. J. Kupfcr.
In reviewing the political cast
of characters in the forthcom
in?? primaries on May tho 21st,
otherwise known as the Amer
ican Drama and which is exhib
ited before the people at inter
vals of two and four years, 1 find
that most of the "candidates"
aro somewhat modest in thnir
coming out before the lime
light. This is not so much their
own fault, but from haarsays
and feeling them out, it seems
that they aro anxious to know
what the other fellow is going
to sav first. Some have been
given tho parts of playing to a
frazzle Economy, others again
like tho nnrt of Efficiency,
while still others prefer tho part
of Promises. Most all of them
although arc still weeping to
show the doar miblic that they
can donict tho character of
"Americanism" and "Patriot
ism" much bettor than their
VVhilo wo mentioned tho fact
that there was a dearth of candi
dates in tho field for Congress
man from, this district, up bobs
our friend and co-worker in tho
newspaper game, taking back
everything he meant Bovcral
wooks ago about contesting thin
pecuniary olJlcc. The last week
ho again comes out in print that
ho has changed his mind and
beliovcs that "Pat" McArthur
hasn't given tho ptiblic a fair
shake. So ho intends to not
only improve on lib) record in
tho House of Congress but is
uoing to show tho voters, if
elected, that when it comes to
play the part of a conuroHsmau
he can put it all over "Pat"
with plenty of pup to spare. As
to our part, I moan all of us, 1
hope he jwill at least make a
stab at it Just to show me how
well ho can do it. In times gone
by wo have hoard of many things
like this to happen, but it was'
tho samo old story I'm in,
you're outthat's all.
I believe in another week
tho cast for this great Ameri
can play will bo completed and
than will give a minute analysis
of each of them to see whether
ho or hIiq is fitted for tho part.
it comos Willi poor grace on my
part to jutlgo of each
cssons. Like unto the masonic
doctrine of having nothing itr
writing to impart, tho myster
ies are all whispered in silence
and seclusion to their novitiates.
So when I hear the time has come
for the final rehearsal for the
public bonefit, I shall give my
honest verdict in an impartial
and unbiased manner to my de
voted fellow voters.
I wish to say in this letter that
owintr to ack of snaco granted
to vouV humble scribe to write
much more, that wo are still
short on the usual quota of per
formers, before the stago sot
ting is completed and effective
I hone by next week this wi
bo remedied to the full satisfac
tion of tho stago manager and
tho various "bosses" in attend
