PROHIBITION CONVENTION 3U
NEES CANNOT RUN AS SUCH IN
THE THE PRIDIAIY.
The much mooted question as to
the status of the prohibitionists has
been settled by the State Democratic
Executive Committee, and under the
ruling of that body those candidates
who were suggested by the Prohibi
tion convention cannot as such run
in the Democratic primary, but they
can as individual Demociats run in
the primary. The difference is this;
the constitution of the Democratic
party prohibits the running of fac
tional candidates and before a man is
permitted to run he must file a pledge
which reads "he is not nor will he
become the candidate of any faction,
either privately or publicly sugges
ted, other than the regular Democrat
ic nomination." The Prohibitionists
are an organized body, and as such
placed a full ticket into the field to be
voted for in the primary; this say's
the highest authority of the party
is directly in violation of the spirit
and intent of the party's constitution,
and the present constitution forbid
ding factional suggestions or uomi
nations was not made in the recent
State convention, it was made in 1894,
reiterated in 1896 and again in 1898.
There was a reason and a good one
too, for putting into the party law
this very thing. In 1890 the consti
tution of the Democratic party (did
not forbid the holding of factional
conventions and this condition per
mitted the famous March convention;
we all remember what a furore it oc
easioned, the Democracy became di
vided into two distinct factions and
they made their fight for the nomnina
tions with much bitterness, and it
resulted in the election of TIillman
and the putting of the Reform fac
tion in control.
Two years after, the 'onservative
faction held a convention and put
forward a ticket headed by Hon. John
C. Sheppard, that ticket failed of
election, then in 1894 when the Rle
formers had everything their own way
what was called the "Celleton Plan"
was conceived; this was not a conten
tion between the Reformer and Con
servative factions, but it was a con
tention within the reform ranks to
the exclusion of the Conservatives;
it was done to weed out the Reform
candididates to, a stand that they
could move solidiy iu case the Con
servatives put up a ticket.
The March convention wvas not in
violation of thme Coustitution of the
Democratic party, neither wats the
Sheppard convemtion of 1892 nor the
factional primary of 1894, but they
all created h-eart burnings, strife, dis
sention, and bitterness with a great
tendency to an ultimate disruption of
the party. At the September State
convention, these matters wiere taken
into serious consideration and it was
agreed by all factions that these pre
liuminary conventions and primaries
should stop; the result was, that in the
convention of 1894 a constitution was
adopted forbidding in future these
preliminary suggestions or nomina
tions by an organized force, and
since the adoption there has not been
any convention or primary outside of
the ones called by the constituted au
thorities of the Democratic party.
This year, however, the Prohibition
party, for it is a distinct party, with
all the elements of a political party,
held a convention, nominated a tick
et, elected an executive committee
and (lid such thiugs as organized pol
itical parties do. Their convention
announced that the ticket suggested
by it, was subject to the action of the
Democratic party. B~efore p)utting
their candidates into the field a con
veution was called of those who fa
vored putting out the ticket and when
the late Democratic Executive Comn
mittee wet, the Prohibitionists ap
peared~ before them, laid their ease
before that body, and that committee
instead of giviug them a p'it ive re
l1y which would leavey no room
for a misundterstan~ding. told the
Prohibitionists that if they cow
piied with t he constitution of thbe
piarty they would be permitted to run:
in the pr'imary. The Prohibitionists
construed this to mean that if they
were willing~ to go into t he primary
an'd not afterwards purt up a ticket in
opp1ositionI to the primary nominees
requirements, and right here is where
they made a mistake; they went into
their convention which under the call
did not admit any one who was op
posed to making nominations, and
they suggested or nominated a full
We believe aUny of them realize
the mistake they made, not only the
method they pursued but in the for
ination of the ticket itself, because by
ti-e personue-l of the ticket they laid
themselves open to the charge of in
consistancy; they claim to be advo
eating a moral principle, neverthe
less they make up a ticket with at
least three of their nominees who are
avowed dispensary men, and one who
it is said is neither for dispensary or
prohibition, and in favor of high
license, but prefers the dispensary to
prohibition. Out of the seven State
oficers suggested, four are said to be
opposed to the Prohibition move
Since the suggestion was made, the
Prohibition Executive Committee,
not being able to withstanit the con
stant fire that has been pouring into
it on aiccount of this inconsistency,
undertook a work of "pacification"
b: Jiswissing one of the dispensary
!:es from the ticket; this one was the
former State Democratic chairman,
with his hand on the lever of the
party machinery, but the Prohi bition
ists did not dismiss him from their
ticket untii after the Democratic party
placed the throttle into the hands of
another engineer. Tompkins was
dropped because he was opposed to
the Prohibition platform and openly
asserted it. Timmerman, Epton and
Thompson, all of whom are not in
favor of the Prohibition platfo in, are
permitted to remain. The action of
the former executive committee did
not satisfy some of the gentlemen on
the Prohibition tieket sufficiently to
make sure of their status in the party
and, being conscientious, they want
ed to have the question ruled upon
by the only authorized power-the
present State Democratic Executive
Committee; a letter with formal ques
tions was addressed to the committee
by Hon. George S. Mower, which is
"Whether or not the suggestion of
a candidate by the recent Prohibi
tion conyention makes the person
who is suggested and accepts a can
didate in the Democratic primary
such as is forbidden by the terms of
the pledge prescribed by the consti
tution of the Democratic party of
And after being discussed from
every standpoint of party law the fol
lowing ruling by the committee was
given to MIr. Mlower's question:
"We interpret the constitution as
disfavoring factional nominations,
but if the pledge is signed by the
candidates as individuals the votes
will be counted."
This reply, taken in connection
with the pledge required by the con
sttut ion, settles the matter and means
that any nmn suggested by a conven
tion or primary not called by- the
constituted authorities, if he accepts
such suggestion or nomination can
not run in the Democratic primary,
but that any Democrat can run in
the primary as an individual. The
nominees of the late Prohibition con
vention are debarred from running
'in the primary unless they first with
draw their acceptance from the Pro
hibition Executive Comnmittee. If
these gentlemen who have been sug
gested withdraw their acceptance, it
places them onthe same basis as any
other Democrat, and, under the rul
ing, they are entitled to the same
privileges. But it may be said
pledges are always signed as individ
uls and it will not hinder the Prohi
bition suggestees frore signing. This
is an error; every m?an suggested by
an organized body and accepts is a
reresentative of the body which puts
him forward and lie does not go into
the race as an individual, and we can
not believe any of the nominees sug
gested will think for a moment of
taking the pledge required by the
constitution unless he first withdraws
The ruling of the committee has
made it clear that any Democrat,
whether he advocates prohibition or
any other issue, can run in the pi
mary, provided he runs in an in
dividual capacity. The wisdom of
this action can be readily seen; it
will prevent bodies of men conigre
gating and splitting the party into
contending factions; it puts every
Democrat in a position to go before
the people to advocate his -:iewvs, and
it puts a stop to the stocking of the
political cards by a self selected fewv

LOOK TO YOUR INTERESTS.
The war is absorbing all public in
terest and politics has become a see
ondary consideration. Our people
should not lose sight of the fact that
we must elect this year our State and
county officers, and it is to their per
sonail interest that proper men should
till these positions. We therefore ad
ise that they do not become indif
ferent to their political duties, and
set about to fill their State and coun
t'y offices with the very best material;
it is in this way that the governwent
can be successfully run in the inter
ests of the people, but if the people
do not take an interest in public af
fairs, political sharpers will take ad
vantage of the opportunity and con
vert the government to their own in
terests, which often breeds corrup
tion, and once in possession it is
with the greatest difficulty they can
be dislodged. Let us all, from now
on, see to it that we seleet our State
and county oflicers without regard to
faction, but with a sole regard to
mjerit and qualification. No man has
a right to appeal to factionalism at
Ithis time, because there are no issues
npon which the Democracy is di
vided. The causes which resulted in
factional division no longe.r exist, and
we are today a reunited party. The
man who woul now attempt to
arouse a factional spirit is not the
man entitled to political preferment,
for he is evidently indifferent to the
people's welfare; it is his personal
aggrandizemnent he i. advancing.
There is no mani aho was more of a
factional partisan than us, but that
was at a time when we saw such a
course was necessary; the conditions
at that time made it necessary in or
der that the people could shake them
selves loose from a condition which
was brought about by their own in
difference, and thus gave political
carbuncles a chance to fasten them
selves on the ship of State. The
work of clearing off these carbuncles
has been acsomplished, and it should
be an object lesson to us not to again
allow ourselves to get in that deplora

There are indications that lead us
to beleive Spain is anxious to sue for
peace. Her treasury is too low to
carry on the war in anything like on
equality with the United States and
wye believe she stands ready to con
eede to anv reasonable demard our
government may make. On the other
land Uncle Sam has got a taste of
Spanish blood and he is inclined to
push the war on, and instead of be
ing satisfied with what the war was
first supposed to have started about
-the freedom of Cuba-Uncle Sam
seems inclined to take unto himself all
of the Spanish-American possessions.
The politicians will not let our gov
ernment stop fighting now if it wants
to, because it is too good a fieki to
pay off political debts. Every man
with a pull at headquarters finds soft
berths and bomb-proofs for his
friends. The war is a great scheme
for politicians, and besides if the war
can be prolonged into the next Presi
dential campaign the party in power
wvill of course be retained, as no lpeo
ple would make a chnange wvhiile tie
country is at war.

would strain every nerve to keep) the

lions of mnoney being spent for every

dollars worth of other things. These
men have found the war to be a per
fect Klondyke and they will have it
continued as long as possible, it mat
ters not how much the people object
nor how many concessions Spain, al
ready whipped, may offer to make.
It is our prediction that the war with ii
Spain will continue until several
other powers combine and call thet
United States to a halt.

The past week has been one of ex
pectancy and the public mind was
kept on strain by the wild rumors
about bombardments, destruction of
Spanish vessels and the landing of
troops on Cuba. The press dis
patches, had they been true, the war
would by now have been ended, if
from no other cause than the coli
plete route of the enemy. Notwith
standing the reported weakness of
Spain and the oft repeated American
victories with scarcely no resistance
from the Spanish forces, United States
has not let up in its preperations in
both army and navy. The land forc
es are being mobilized to be ready to
go either to Porto Rica, Manila, the
Phillipines or to Cuba.
The most important happening of
the past week was the dare-devil
bravery of Lieutenant Hobson, who
took charge of the Collier Merrimac
with seven men and amid a storm of
shell from the shore batteries, entered
the mouth of the channel at Santiago
de Cuba harbor, blew up lii:; ship
with a torpedo anl sunk her so as to
ob!struct :he passage in or out of the
harbor. This was done to complete
ly bottle up Cervera with his squad
ron who is sumposed to be hidden be
hind the hills in that harbor. Hobson
azid his mien swama ashore and were
caAured, but what prevented them
from destroying their lives with the
ship is one of those mysterious hap
penings to one can account for. He
and his brave comrades are safe and
they have, by this one act, written
their names on the pages of fame.
Yesterday's dispatches reported
the sinking of the Spanish torpedo
boat Terror,and the landing of 12,000
American soldiers near Santiago; the
report is not officially confirmed and
is not believed. The ground for the
report is that one of our battleships
saw a moving object close in shore
and dred upon it, immediately threw
its searchlight on to see the i-r-sult of
the shoi, but there was nothing in
sight, and many thinL it was a dark
ened train passing.

intimated in this correspondence, thE

tardy in sending Admiral Dewey
adequate relief. Now it develop
that the Cadiz fileet has actually sailed
for Manila. It is a formidable 1leet,
consisting of somne seven or eight
good fighting vessels, including the
armed cruisers Pela o, Carlos V and
Mum ancia-m nch more formidable
in fact, than our Asiatic squadron is
able to successfully meet; and the
most apprehensive part of the situa
tion is the fact that this fleet can
reach Manila before any re-enforee
ments of our Asiatic fleet can reach
Admiral Dewer. It has been almost
a crime that our gallant fleet over
there has been so long and shame
lessly neglected; and, if disaster
should overtake it, the blood-will be
upon the hands of the Administra
tion for its unpardonable neglect and
dereliction of dutv. The only re-en

to Admiral Dewey is the cruiser Char

other expedition is promised to de
