WISE AND REPUBLICAN
There Is not a Republican In this
Territory vvho should not bo inter
ested In the statements that have
Jjee'il made by John Wlo and Charlie
Achl on what has been going on In
the circles known ns the "organiza
tion" ot the Republican party.
An j one who docs not like Wise
Or .Achl may discount the personal
factor as much as they like the fact
stands out all through the confer
ences and tho attempted manipula
tions that the organization of the
Republican party Is not being carried
on of, by and for tho people, but,
rather to accomplish certain trades
and enhance personal ambitions or
satisfy personal grudges.
It is a foregone conclusion that
someone Is putting up money to pay
for the "organization" ot the Repub
It Is proper that the Republican
voters of the city and Territory
should know whether the organiza

Why, Indeed, should the wharf to
be constructed in llllo, the ap
proaches to which are to be given
over to tho control of n private cor
poration, be placed in an exception

charges and conditions that do not
prevail In this port?
Why, in other words, should tho
public pay any higher tribute for tho
use ot a wharf In Hllo than It does
for tho use of a wharf unyvvliero clsa
In this Territory?

of the offlclals In the Territorial Cap
