One who "Makes no Bones" Abont his
Methods Tells how to
Short cut to 1'oUHcal Success Some
Mr. Editer: I ain't no writer
worth speaking of and like as not
Iaintuearas smart as you. But
sure as you live I can show you a
wrinkle or two about running a
newspaper. You don't know how
Leastwise not hero in Salem. Per
haps you arc young and green and
haven't traveled and got experience
like older men.
I'm talking about a campaign
paper, you understand. What
you've got to do is to make your
side win. The main thing is to
beat them other fellows. Well,
you're not half rabid enough to do
that. Take an old stager's advice
and keep your eye solely onto tho
party and the postoillces. Don't
waste too much time a reasoning.
Call tho other fellows donkeys,
fools and Ignorant, and lay it on
thick. Don't you ever allow that
your political enemies has got a lick
of sense. And tho worst thing you
could do is to admit that any party
but yourn ever had a spark of
If I was in your shoes I'd niako
people believo that everybody as
differed with mo on protection
wanted to shut up every mill and
workshop in the country and sell
the United States to Great Britain
for so much lump sum. I'd keep
hammering away on that string till
people would believo that the other
side wasn't American citizens and
didn't mean to let their own ilesh
and blodd have a chance to earn a
crust of bread nor a colored shirt nor
a calico dress.
If that didn't do you bet I'd pile
it on so thick it woidd soon appear
they wasn't hardly human beings.
I mean them democrats and prohis
and labor fellows and American
party. Why don't you glvo Belva
Lockwood jess and then make be
lieve all tho other parties is just as
cranky? Tho trouble with you is
you kind of allow that there's some
thing might bo paid on tho other
side. That won't never do. That
is if your bound to win, anyhow.
And I see you sometimes give tho
news about tho other parties as if
thev had any standing or rights.
Take my word for it you'll never
win on that layout.
Club'em, whack'eni over tho
head, bully rag'em, sneer at 'cm.
Don't give 'em any show, keep the
dust ilylng all the time so they
can't seo clear. Even supposing
there Is anything to bo said on tho
other side, don't you ever admit it.
Keep only your own side before tho
public and yell's loud as you can.
If tho other chaps has got any virtues
or sense its time enough to admit it
afterwards if they should happen to
get elected. But they won't if you'll
bo guided by me.
Don't givo away a single thing
under tho Idea of being candid and
fair. All's fair in war and politics.
Nobody In Ids own party expects
you to bo fair nor over particular
about truth in a red hot campaign
like this where we've got to win or
bo busted. Independence does very
woll between olections. Then I
admire it myself but thero's no
time nor use for it now.
I suppose you've got all shades
of politics among your readers but
they've got no right to oxpect you'll
give more than ono kind of news or
argument. And if they can't
stand it to bo atiuseu and called a
lot of asses and deadly enemies to
the masses, that sounds iiko poetry,
why what do they hike your paper
for? So no more from yours for
victory at the polls,

In charge for seventeen years. Mr.
Knight very reasonably thinks that
tlio time lias fully come for putting
tho school on a basis commensurate
with tho prospective or rather
assured growth of tills state. The
buildings aro inadequate, tho
grounds too small and the sewerage
defective or really next to nothing.
As adjoining land that could have
been obtained a short time since at
low figures has now risen in price
beyond what the state Is likely to
caro to givo for it, tho institution
may have to be re-located. Mr.
Knight has long planned to make
the school distinctively an industrial
one nnd will now press that feature
more than ever upon tho attention
of tho next legislature. Ho should
bo seconded by all who feel an in
terest in tills work. Certainly
those who aro cut oil' from easy
communication with society nood
to be helped to some manual means
of obtaining a livelihood. And the
deaf muto being necessarily very
qulok with eye and hand would
soon becomo oxpert when blesed
with ordinary aptness and careful
instruction. Already a start has
been mado in broom making. It Is
believed that the next legislature
will oontain a fair proportion of
broad minded, buius men of
philanthropic instincts who will In
telligently Investigate tho subject
and heoure ample appropriatieu for
the needs of this school.
