SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, NOVEMBER 2, 1895,
DO YOUR "WHOLE DUTY.
NRxrTuesday.Nov. 5, 1894, will
bean eventful day for Utah. It
will be ike battle ground of a con--test
of ballots; and not only will
all the people of this fair common
wealth wait the result with intense
interest, but the eyes of the whole
nation will watch the termination
of the straggle with deep concern.
Utah is a name of histronic im
portance throughout the civilised
world, aad a change in her situation
will be marked by all observers.
We as a people are about to secure
the birthright of statehood, and by
our vote determine the policy of the
:new state government. As this
-frill be the last issue of the Broad
Ax prior to the election, we desire
-to briefly sum up the case before
submitting it to the decision of the
-people. One thins all must feel
gratified over, and that is, this
campaign has been fought with an
absence of personalities. The voters
can act freely from. pure, motives,
and as to the preference of those to
rule over us, can be, and should be
decided upon the principles they
Tepresent and their qualifications.
The principles of the leading par
ties are pretty wall understood,
and need sot he reiterated here.
As to the candidates for the various
offices, we claim the Democratic
party have given the .people a
splendid ticket to "support. John
T. Came for Governor is a broad
minded, brainy man, of large ex
perience m public. aftairs in Utah,
and if elected will Bake a model
Governor. O&the other hand Jar.
Welk may "be a pleasant gentleman,
but he a young man without any
experience in pnblic matters, aad it
would be a dangerous experimeat
to entrust the ship of state to an

the superior of C. E. Allen, thai a

ers from abroad will be imported to
do it The motto of the Demo
crats is: "Salt 'Lake workmen for
Salt Lake work." Therefore, be
sure and vote for the entire Demo
cratic city ticket, and thus vote for
your own interest and beaefit.
Fay no attention to any rumor or
circular that may appear on the
day of election. Such things are
invariably untrue, and are put out
simply to deceive voters. If the
Democracy and the better class of
Republicans will pull together, and
vote their honest sentiments, No
vember 5th will be a day of victory
for honest government and reform.
Det every man do his duty.

It was quite well demonstrated
that the Broad Ax has many read
ers and supporters among the
colored people, as they turned out
en masse, and were enthusiastic in
their praise of the course pursued
by this paper. A large number of
the boys will vote their first Demo
cratic ticket at this election.
The editor returns his thanks to
all who honored him by their at
tendance, and in the gratitude' of
his heart will treasure up the mem
ory of the luad. words given him,
aa long as life endures. There was
no color line drawn on this occa
sioa. The gallant Kentucky gover
nor and other white gentlemen and
their ladies, mingled wkh each
other and with the vast throng of
colored ladies and gentlemen, with
out aay discrimination. Such is
the "new Democracy."
