job. He has never paid for
election favors, has never allow-
ed any one to dictate any of the
appointments to clerkships in
the office and is shoving his
whole salary ir*o his own pocket.
We are opposed to this plan and
propose to run some one who
does’nt want to be the whole
thing. As to Stevens, it’s just
about the same. There is noth
ing in supporting him. He runs
the thing himself and keeps the
money. He seems to think he
can get along without us and we
think so too. Any way we in
tend to help some one out who
doesn’t think so much of himself.

We are not electioneering. These
men have never done us any
favors that we know of, but as
far as this argument is concerned
we think the officers did just
right. The whole primary law
aims to dispense with bribery
in every form, be it favors
treats, cash donations, or parti
san dictation. We want men for
office who know enough to con
duct the affairs safely and eco-
nomially. If we get that sort
of a man there is no need for
dictation or advice. If we have
