W. W. Myers Does Not Want to bt

circulating referendum petitions on the

becond, If yon have no better argu
ment for the fair, than to prejudice peo.
pie against the petition by trying to

you are certainly very short of argu

party refuse to take sides or to be led
into a controversy nn 'his question,

ever, that the Socialists as a part stand

wnetner this is not pure democracy?
And, farther if you will re.d the So
cialist platfo m a id give us any portion
of it that is 1 ot pure democracy I will be
very much oUiged to you for the infor
mation. If the Courier, as the official organ of
the Democratic party, desires to place
itself against the right of ths people to
refer matters of .taxation that con
cerns them, we have no objections. I
am quite sure you would be surprised to
take a look at the petitions. If they
were evidence of the socialist strength,
ye old parties would be short on election
day. This is a matter of business with
us, not politics. I hope, if yau have any
serious objections to referring the 1905
