Parties Can Put Whom They

Can u Democrat file a Republican

This was the question put up to
Secretary of Stale Graves yesterday
from Medina County nnd his reply
was: "There is absolutely no law to
prevent tho Doniocrntlc electors from
offering as their candidate any per
son, Irrespective of party afllllatlon."
If Republicans dcslro to place Dem
ocrats on their ticket, or It Demo
crats would like to name Prohibition
ists, there Is nothing to prevent their
doing so, Mr. Graves says.
James Kong has filed a protest, as
sorting that tho name of L. 13. Can
yard should not be placed on tho bal

county surveyor on tiio ground that
ho is not a Democrat, but n Republi
can. (lanyard wrote to Secretary
" I was elected county surveyor In
1802 us a Republican, but at tho Re
publican county convention In June
1901, I was deprived of a renomlna
tlon tlnough fraud. Of this I havo
ubHolulo proof. I stood by the Re
publican party until February, 1008,
when I told my friends that my next
vote would bo for Bryan, as he
preaches something cleaner than wo
havo in Medina County. I havo vot
ed tho straight Democratic ticket
since then, except that I havo sup
ported throe personal friends, who
happened to be Republicans."
Secretary Ornvcs says: "This
