The Republicans refuse to swal
low Crane, but they make Crane
eat crow. The whole dish they
have set before the public is more
like hash, with the judicial part
Oscar Van Cott is a sure winner
for Superintendent of Schools.
Charlie Short, the Republican nom
inee, will be short of votes in his
own precinct. He is too short
winded for a long campaign. In
short he will be short of an elec
tion, as the people will make short
work of him.

to again read it.
The Broad Ax was read by over
one thousand voters last week.
A large number of the colored
people of Salt Lake approve of the
Broad Ax, because it "hews to the
The Republican ratification love
feast last Monday eve, was another
exhibition of their disregard for
the colored man. All classes,
creeds, and complexions were there,
and all invited to take a part, save
and except the colored man. The
late candidate for the legislature,
the president of the Lincoln Club
and other talented colored speakers
were present, but not even five
minutes could be spared to one of
these gentlemen. The one thousand
colored voters of Utah will please
"paste this in their hats."
Boss Quay still holds his scepter
over the Republican party in Penn
sylvania. The name should be
changed from the Keystone Btate,
to the Qudystone state.
There will be three vacancies on
the Republican ticket, in conse
quence of the women being disqual
ified. Will the colored man be in
vited to fill one of the places? No,
indeed. Great is Republican love
for the black man.
The legislative ticket of the
Democrats is a model. The work
ingmen, business men, lawyers and
farmers are fairly represented, and
all good men. Elect the entire
ticket and Salt Lake county will be
in safe hands.
Rawlins and Thatcher their
names set the convention wild with
enthusiasm. We knew these noble
men had a -warm place in the hearts
of the people of Salt Lake County,
and of the entire State. Next year
it will be Senator Rawlins and
The Broad Ax is appreciated by
dor journalistic friends. Space
forbids the copying of their com
plimentary notices, but we assure
them the editor feels flattered by
the kind expressions given us by
the i Salt Lake Herald, and the
Deseret Evening News. We shiJI
eadeavor to merit 'all they have
add, and continue to advocate jus
tice and equality. We are con
tendiag for a good cause, and we
believe the white, as well as the
colored voters will give us their
rapport aad encouragement.
C. E. Allen, the G. O. P. nomi
nee for Congress, possesses no fit
ness for the honorable position,
except noise and cheek. If a com
bination of ignorance and impu
dence qualifies a man for M. C.
then he may pass. However, we
believe the voters of Utah will not
confer this high honor upon a man
who has an unbroken record of
hate for our people, and who, until
the last moment opposed the ad
mission of Utah as a State. He
passes as a champion of silver
coinage, but all his rant and roar
about silver is simply to catch
votes. Then he knows his party is

Should he by accident go to Con
gress, he will amount to but little
more than a "fly on a cart wheel."
As between Allen and B. H".
Roberts, the Cicero of Utah, there
is as wide a difference as there is
between a sweet potato ridge and
the Wasatch range.
"The Republican party of Penn
sylvania hereby declares its opposi
tion to the debasement of the
national currency by the admission
of silver to free and unlimited coin
age at the arbitrary ratio of 16 to
1." The above quotation is from
the Republican platform of Penn
sylvania, adopted the same day that
the G. O. P. of Utah pronouueed
for silver. The banner Republican
state has set the pacf- on the silver
question. It may be worm-wood
and gall to the western Republi
cans, but, gentlemen, you will have
to take your medicine. G. O. P.
will now stand for Gold Only
Party. How long will you deluded
silver Republicans stay in the camp
of the enemy? It is in the Demo
cratic party alone that a fight is
being made for the white metal,
with any chance of success. We
challenge you to show a single rep
resentative Republican who is mak
ing a fight for silver at this critical
