To the Independent:
I notice in the columns of the
Reporter that Marshall McClure
under the auspices of the so-called
Republican Central Commiitee,
is closely watching the indepen
dent candidates and amongst
other things has discovered that
the independent candidates eat.
drink and sleep like other people.
This I suppose is interesting
news, and also valuable infor
mation for the voters. But it
would be more interesting if the
same Central Committee would
let us know how it happened
that the bolters of the Republi
can party were seated in the
State Convention. It would also
be interesting for the people to
know how some members of the
Central Committee had made an
agreement with the machine
politicians of the State in order
that the bolters would be recog
nized as the Regular Republicans.
This wan done long befoie the
Republican Countv Convention
was held. Do the people know
that if the bolters had won in the
regular convention, not one of
the present nominees would have
been nominated? The members
of the so-called Republican Cen
tral Committee know that to be
a fact. But they do not tell the
people this. Still these men have
the audacity to blame others for
runningindependentlv, when they
themselves are nothing but bol
ters, from the regular Republican
ranks, and having robbed the
regular Republicans of their
rights by the aid of a corrupt
politician machine of the ptate.
You blame free and intelligent
men for running independently,
you who were never good Re
publicans. and some of you never
yet voted the Republican ticket.
You are vourselves doing the

telligent and honest men. You
may of course prevent the truth,
and win nominations, and even
elections by your corrupt meth
ods, but you cannot choke such
an unjust act as was perpetrated
by the re-organizers, by splitting
up the regular Republican con
vention, down the throats offree
and intelligent men. not even
with the aid of Senator Hans
brough with the State Central
Committee in his pocket. No
Republican is in honor bound
to support a ticket gotten up by
such corrupt methods as yours,
and I for one, protest against
the corrupt procedures. Had
you gone into the regular con
vention with your two-thirds
majority, and won out, there
would have been harmony in the
Republican ranks today. This
would have been an easy matter
with your two-thirds majority,
but the facts are, you well know,
you did not even have the ma
jority. That is the reason that
you planned to either pack the
opera house, and bulldoze the
convention, by storm, or bolt,
which you did when your first
attempt failed. And you em
ployed L. I). McGahan to bull
doze the crowd, a man who was
3t even a voter in this county.
By your own selfish aud un
worthy actions, you are your
selves to blame for the dishar
mony prevailing in the Republi
can ranks of Ward county to
day, and you have no valued
reason to expect anything else.
You have by your own selfish
acts created a feeling amongst
the people which is very bitter,
and which it will take something
else to wipe out than to tell us
that the independent candidates
eat, drink and sleep. Do you
think you can play with the feel
ings of intelligent men as you
like, and go unpunished? I tell
you, you cannot, and the time
will come when you will regret
your unwise and selfish move.
For Canucks to Read.
The following excellent poem
which was composed by a broth
er of R. W. Davidson of this city
and published in the .lanesville
(Minn.,) Argus, will be read with
much interest especially by those
who have been over in Canada
for the purpose of taking upland.
Some of our friends have gone uway
To take up land in Canada.
They take tho oath and choke it down
And swear allegiance to the crown.
They swear, affirm to yell or sing
And boiler out "God Save the King."
How can a Yankee take that stand
Just (or a little piece of land.
Land may be irood and rich for wheat.
Grass may grow tall and mighty sweet
Some places too. there may be found
Where sleighing's irood the hull year round. S
On skating. too. you may rely.
From August clear into July,
Advantages. wjiy to be sure,
liut that's oath I cun endure.
I wouldn't mind to climb a steeple
And whoop'er up "God Save the People"
Nor yell like an old resident
"God Save the People's President."
For we should never cease to call
On trood Clod to save us all.
Born in the states, and by and by
In these same states I hope to die.
And never will I bow my head
To Russian Nick or Britain's Ned.
The son of Vie, it is no sign
That Edward reigns by right divine.
I know that thing would take my breath,
I know 'twould choke me plumb to death.
I know 'twould turn me inside out.
Give me the measles or the gout.
Fever and ague whooping-cough.
And maybe all my toes come off.
Let those who wish to Britons be
And go up there for all of me.
But let me stay in dear old Minn..
Among old frields and near my kin.
