Ingo tho Republicans had 44 per cent
of tho total vote, tho Democrats 27
per cent, tho "Americana," 23 por
cent, tho Socialists, C per cent. There
has been nothing since then to disturb
tho normal condition between Repub
licans and Democrats. If thcro Is any
change it is gains to tho Republicans.
The stronger ticket with which to
boat tho Kearns crowd Is undoubtedly
tho Republican.
C tS
It would require that 4,000 Republi
can votes bo transferred to tho Dem
ocrats to bring up tho Democrats to
whero the Republicans now stand,
which Is an impossibility. The com
mon enemy, tho Kearns "Americans'
must bo beaten by tho Republicans.
Tho game of tho Kearns "Amerl
I cans" Is to keep tho opposition dlvld-
ed. Should they succeed in doing so
I they would havo an easy victory. Will
I you peoplo who want to conquer the
I common enemy play Into their hands?
I The only possible way to defeat tho
enomle3 of tho state and city Is to
voto tho Republican ticket.
Chairman Darmer of tho Kearns
party says his party Is lighting tho
Mormons pure and simple and if his
party wins no Mormon need apply for
any city position or any city work.
Mr. Darmer tells tho truth. How do
you llko tho prlnclplo which calls out
such a declaration? It is worthy of
tho Kcarns-Cannon aggregation.
You Gentiles of tho American party
must bo very proud of your leader,
tho HONORABLE Furious J. Cannon!
He's a nlco man to follow. No won
der you are proud of him.
Tho Tribuno says It is not a knock
er, but its editor in chief, Furious J.
Cannon, Is In tho east slandering and
knocking Utah with all his might,
and tho Tribune Is making a feature
of his lying, slanderous speeches
which keep both capital and desirable
cltlzons from coming to Utah.
A number of peoplo who aro known
to bo Kearns "Americans" havo Ille
gally registered. Several were caught
at it and others aro known to havo
registered who havo no right to voto.
They will bo attended to If they atr
tempt to voto.
If you want Georgo Sheets for chlol
of police then voto for Ezra Thomp
son for mayor.
J &
Candidate for the city council Mar
tin of tho First precinct, made a bet
that tho "Americans" would elect
threo councllmen. Ho specified two
In the Fifth and ono In tho Second,
omitting himself and his own pre
cinct. Martin has little confldenco in
his own ability to win. As a matter
of fact tho betting is 2 to 1 against
him. Harry Joseph made a wager
on that basis.
& J
Wo notice by tho Telegram that tho
Durllngton railroad Is extending Its
road to Salt Lako merely to "make
good" an alleged prediction of tho
Telegram. As a prophet, seer and
revelator Joseph F. Smith "Isn't In It"
with tho Telegram.
The peoplo found in tho "Ameri
can" headquarters aro to a very large
extent, bums and loafers, a hard
looking crowd. If you don't beliovo it
go in and see for yourself.
The Democrats had a rally at tho
house of tho city sexton at the grave
yard tho other night. That Is lit and
I proper, tho Democrats should Join tho
rest of tho dead.
Since W. J. Lynch has been at tho
head of tho police tho department has
I
been exceptionally efllclcnt. Thero
havo been no Internal disturbances
and harmony has provt!lcd among
tho men. Crlmo has been reduced to
a minimum.
Judge James A. Miner Is a truo bluo
Republican and never voted any tick
et but tho Republican.
Street car holdups havo ijrcomo
unfashlonablo since Lynch became
chief of police. Tho attempted hold
ups which havo occurred havo result
ed In every case In tho capture of tho
thugs.
j .
An effort to elect Morris helps
Thompson that much.
Every effort to elect Lynch drives
a nail In tho political coffin of the
Kearns gang, the party that is found
ed on hato and revenge.
Tho "American" party loaders are
renegades from every political party,
a batch of "exs", soreheads and agi
tators who havo been retired for the
good of tho public service and are
running a campaign of hatred, re
venge and ruin. They aro against tho
national administration, against the
state administration, against tho city
administration, against everything
and everybody that will not submit
to their corrupt dictation. No loyal
citizen, with self-respect can afford to
lino up with tho Kearn3 "American"
crowd. Tho only way to get rid of
this political viper is to voto tho Re
publican ticket.
Tho battlo cry of all honest loyal
citizens, irrespectivo of party or
creed, should bo beat tho Kearns
gang with Lynch.
Tuesday, October 31, is your last
chanco to register. Don't forget about
It. If you aro not registered you
won't be allowed to voto.
Tho supremo court's appointment
of A. B. Edlor as court reporter was
a good ono and meets tho approval
of tho bar. Mr. Edler Is a young at
torney of ability and good character.

WHY WAS AMERICAN PARTY OR
GANIZED? (With apologies to Tribuno.)
Senator Thomas Kearns, of "Filo
pony" and "Islo of Alaska" famo, or
ganized his personal political forces
two years ago and dominated tho city
convention to the extent of placing In
nomination a solid Kearns ticket. The
ticket was defeated at tho polls, for
tho simple and very sufficient reason
that Republicans would not stand for
such a llagrant attempt at Individual
bosslsm. This Is why No. 1.
Still Senator, Thomas Kearns
worked diligently throughout tho ear
ly days of the campaign last fall and
up to 10 o'clock a. m. of tho day of
tho state convention, In an attempt
to again assert that Individual bosslsm
which had been so ruthlessly sat down
upon tho year before. Tho attempt
failed. This is why No. 2. And then
It happened.
Thero is really nothing moro to
tell; but. now that we havo riveted
tho attention of our readers, we will
continue his little storyetto from day
to day and endeavor to introduco
enough new features to make It inter
esting. Since tho date of tho events
chronicled In tho opening chapters of
this narrative, thero havo been a num
ber oi now "characters" Introduced,
among whom can bo mentioned Frank
J. Cannon. This "character" we will
endeavor in futuro numbers to show
up as ono of tho leading "whys" of
tho aggregation.
THE COUNCILMANIC NOMINEES.
Tho outlook for tho Republican
Councllnmnlc ticket Is exceptionally
good. In tho First precinct tho candi
dates aro Frank J. Hewlett nnd Ste
phen Stanford. Tho former Is a busi
ness mnn nnd manufacturer, cmplo.
ing a largo number of hands in hln
factory, thereby causing money to be
circulated and assisting in tho upbuild
ing of tho city. Ho has been in tho
Council for several terms and has
given a good account of himself. He
will certainly bo re-elected. Mr. Stan
ford Is especially a representative of
tho working element. Ho is n man ot
good, sound common sense, with more
than ordinary ability nnd intelligence,
nnd appeals strongly to tho voters ol
his precinct.
In tho Second, J. W. Currlo is a
giant of strength, an old resident, a
man' who Is respected by his neigh
bors and who enjoys their confidence
and esteem. His profession is that of
an assayer and ho Is well known and
trusted by tho mining men of tho
State. J. A. Ekman, his collonguo on
tho ticket. Is a business man, who
has been tho architect of his own for
tunes. Ho has built up an extensive
business in tho Second precinct. Ho
knows its needs nnd wants and Is alto
gether a most desirable man to sit In
tho Council.
In tho Third, the fight will bo fierce.
It Is tho battleground, tho pivot on
which tho election turns. T. A. Canis
ter and E. F. Parry aro tho Republi
can candidates. The former is a na
tive of tho Third, highly esteemed by
all who know him, and respected for
his honesty, sterling worth and busi
ness nblllty. If ho Is elected, nnd he
will be, ho will countenance no job
bcry or crooked work In tho Council,
and ho is just smart enough to detect
anything of that kind.
Mr. Parry Is an old nnd highly es
teemed resident of tho Third. Ho has
a host of friends In all tho political
parties and will make a very desirable
member of tho City Council.
In tho Fourth precinct, A. II. Pea
body and Joseph Johnson aro tho can
didates. Mr. Peabotly occupies a posi
tion of trust In tho Commercial Na
tional bank. Ho Is a man of affairs,
whoso probity and Integrity aro above
suspicion. Ho has a large circle of
friends and will run well at tho polls.
Mr. Johnson Is what might bo callod
an integral part of tho Fourth pro
clnct, having lived thero so long nnd
being so well known. Ho is manager
of tho accuntlng department of tho
Consolidated Wagon and Machine
company, a man of high character and
trustworthy to tho fullest extent; a
man of substantial means nnd vitally
Interested In tho wolfaro of tho city,
and particularly In the Fourth pre
cinct, whero ho has largo property In
terests. Tho Fifth precinct used to bo tho
banner Republican district of tho city
and thero is no reason why It should
not maintain that reputation. Tho
Democrats havo no show thero, hut
between them and the mlBgulded peo
plo who havo gono after tho falso gods
of tho Kearns-Amorlcan party, tho
Republicans will havo to look to their
laurels. Tho candidates aro II. N.
Standlsh and Dr. A. C. Bower. Mr.
Standlsh Is a leading citizen, who has
held public office before, with credit
to himself and tho satisfaction of his
constituents. His interests in tho
city aro substantial and ho would bo a
very useful member of tho Council.
Dr. A. C. Bower Is so well known
that It is almost superfluous to say
anything regarding him. Ho has been
ono of tho leading physicians of tho
city for years nnd Is noted for his
works of charity and benevolence. He
is a largo property-owner in tho pre
einct which ho will represent In tho
Council; a mnn of means, probity and
ability.
A SPLENDID SERVITUDE. I
What classical saying strikes n more H
moJern note than tint of Seneca, "A H
groat fortuno Is a splendid servitude?" H
It seems simply a translation Into tho H
Latin philosopher's sonorous phrase of H
tho commonplaces of our own familiar H
philosophy, as when Andrew Carnegio H
speaks of "slaves of tho habit of hoard- H
Ing," and adds: "At first thoy own tho H
money thoy havo mado and saved. H
Later In life tho money owns them."
To such apparent identity of vlow In H
a Seneca nnd a Cjmeglo thero attaches H
tho peculiar interest many moderns H
feel In tho Hfo of tho Roman Empire,
because in its materialism and Its lm- H
perlallsm it Is supposed to parallel our H
own civilization, tho student of man- H
nnrs constantly harking back to It for H
a curious rosomblanco and tho moralist H
for an "awful warning." Thus, with H
tho modern moro or less on tho watch M
to see Roman history of tho first con- M
tury repeat itself In tho twentieth, any H
fresh contribution to our knowledge M
concerning It nttracts almost a popular M
audience as In tho case of Dr. Dill's H
recently published study ot "Roman H
Society from Nero to Marcus Aure- H
lius." M
The plcturo Dr. Dill draws for us of M
the Roman millionaire of tho first con- M
tury seems, cursorily, to bo a caso of ' M
history repeated. Tho lavishncss of M
his entertainments, of which tho ox- H
travaganco has been so often detailed lM
(perhaps $1G0,000 for Egyptian lilies
for a single feast Is a novel Item) ; his H
frequent appearance in tho role of self- fl
mado man" who had "como up from M
tho peoplo" tho freedmon; his ac- M
knowledgcd obligation to spend liber- M
ally on municipal objects, as baths fl
and temples, and also hospitals, schools M
and good roads; his contributions, iH
mora or loss nnmnnlsnrv. to tlin ml I p. iH
gin or trades-unions of tho time; his 'H
genulno and general pity for tho prole- i
tarlat his spirit of charity, In modern M
phrase despite tho hideous cruelty of "H
tho gladiatorial shows and slavo pun- "B
Ishmcnts; his liability to tho Inherl- Vt
tnnce tax and to other special taxes H
that in tho end dovelopod into a ays- H
tern ot practical confiscation In those jB
and many other respects tho Roman U
millionaire is pictured as subject to iM
familiar modern conditions, actual or jM
possible. But turning to tho other side tA
of tho plcturo, tho transition In status ,llH
Is startllngly abrupt. Tho price that 'fl
Seneca paid for his wealth was not jH
figuratively, but literally, "n splendid H
servitude" Tho tutor of Nero, owing ifl
his fortune of somo twclvo millions to iM
tho Emperor's favor, Seneca wroto his 'H
confession In "tho thick, stifling air f'H
of tho Terror," "tossing on his couch 'H
of purplo under richly paneled ceilings !'
of gold, starting at ovory sound in tho ;!H
wainscot as ho awaits tho messenger ;'
of death" tho summons to sulcido by M
tho Emperor's command. Tho thought 'M
In Seneca's mind could not havo been '1H
nt a farther posslblo remove from any 'H
modern association with tho servitude 'M
of wealth. Yet tho Roman sago, no '.iH
loss than tho plain, business-man mil- ',M
llomlro today (so far as ho Is possess- . M
cd by tho spirit of unlimited acquis!- 'M
Hon), deliberately sought tho servl- il
tudo, but to recognize it too late. This -M
Inexplicable willingness to pay the cost 'M
any cost In tho first century or In 'M
tho twentieth, passes tho understand- fl
ing not alono of tho man outsldo, tho fl
preacher, or censor, or publicist, but, M
in his saner moments, of the man of M
affairs as well. It Is In his behalf that M
a publication devoted to solid business ifl
Interests, tho Bankers' Magazine, on- M
tcrcd recent protest against tho servl- ,fl
tudo of wealth, tho continuance of "tho fl
old, barbaric strugglo" until (loath ft- fl
self Intervenes; the sacrifice of "tho fl
rational nnd intelligent" ordering of fl
llfo despite all modern facilities for M
tho safo reinvestment of n sufficient M
fortuno. Scrlbner's. M
