Editor Statesman: Mv attention has
been called to an item in The Statesman
concerning mv recent candidacy for the
clerkship of Crook cuunty, which is, in
effect, absolute If. iiutrue.
. I was not repudiated by the Demo
cratic unty convention held in this
county last- spring, and I dnl not tanl
as a Gidd, Democratic candidate this
year, but was noniinatcd.by the Repub

meeting of the Democratic convention.
The so-called Democracy never had a
chance to repudiate me, for I left the
party in 1830, when the Populist hen
hatched Bryan and the Chicago plat
form, and I have not since that time af
filiated with the Democratic organiza
