W art authorised to announce P. &
Whitlock, of Kirkvllle, a candidate (or the
office of Assessor of Madison county, sub

We are authorised to announct that The
MADISONIAN to a candidate for entry
into each home In Madison county, subject
to the approval of the Family. We stand
for the HOME CIRCLE first, last and al

In the event of the appoint
ment of another man for the
office of postmaster of this city,
why should it not be left to a prim
ary election? "Let the people
rule" has been the Democratic
slogan for years. No true Dem
ocrat can object to the people,
whom the postmaster is to serve,
having a voice in his selection.
It is the democratic manna. It
cannot be urged that if that
method was selected, then
the republicans could com
bine and make the nomination
of a republican certain. In the
selection of an officer to be ap
pointed by a democratic presi
dent, they would not offer to im
press their wishes on the ap
pointing power. Besides this
primary can be limited ' to the
Democratic party in which all
the party can be heard. It may
be urged that if it is left to the
people that it is possible that
their choice may not be selected
because the vote would be so
divided that no real choice of
the people would be had. This
cart easily be obviated. The
second or even the third choice
ballot can be used and then it
will finally come down to a
choice between two contending
candidates as to which will be
'.We tried to have such a pro
vision incorporated in the gen
eral pi im ury law for the State and
was ii form ad by our representa
ive that such provisions were
substantially incorporated in the
bill as drawn and which was
then before the Legislature. If
they were in the same, they were
stricken out; for certain it is that
they are not in the law.
Let's have the principles of
democracy incorporated in the
law itself. We go before the
people shouting for a rule of the
people but when it comes to en
acting laws to give the people
some voice in their government,
we find that the rights of the
people have been carefully em
asculated. Again we say "Lets have a
post office primary." If any man
is willing to oppose the rights
of the people to select their post
master, then let that man, 'go
way back and sit down."
THE PRESIDENT'S SILENCE.
The silence of the president on
important cabinet appointments,
exceeds that of Dean Maitland.
It has become oppressive. The
daily .papers are restless; also
several hundred thousand boys
who fought in the trenches are on
the anxious seat '
It may be that the President
has his mind fully made up as to
the personnel of his cabinet. If he

has, it is his duty to make it
known to the people that they
may either oppose or comfirm his
appointments. The people are
the governed and they have the
right to know whom the Presi
dent selected as his advisors. -
It Is said that "Deep water
runs still." Evidently from this
we must assume that the Presi
dent is deep in meditation and
that the appointments which he
will make will be eminently sat
isfactory to the people. This
would be confbrting to us if we
were not haunted by that other
well known fact that all still
water Is not deep. The Presi
dent should take the people into
his confidence and tell them
frankly whom he intends to ap
point as the members of his
cabinet Further dallying on his
part will confirm a well founded
belief that there are "others" who
know his mind on this subject

him three time and I feel that I have
made the discovery of a really great mas

on the verge of collapse: then I was res

me through tcence of boyish delight or

forsake. Creat I the mission of humor,

are without regret; great is the realm of
