"Joe" Hilton, the Pop candidate
for the legislature, is much given to
the use of emphatic and picturesque
language; in fact it is what people who
are inclined to be scrupulous about
£uch matters commonly call profane.
President Cleveland, Secretary Car
lisle, Senator Sherman and numerous
Other statesmen of both the great
parties he is in the habit of calling by a
name which never looks well in print,
but which is sometimes indicated by
the use of initial and terminal letters,
as follows "s—n of a b h." Mr. Hil
ton is said to be more or less expert as
an animal doctor and it may be that
the name referred to is indispensable
in his professional vocabulary and that
he occasionally makes a misapplica
tion of it without any uncompliment
ary intent. It appears also that his
views of the great mass of American
citizens whom the Bryauites delight
in referring to as the "common people"
are somewhat peculiar, as indicated by
an opinion expressed at Olga during
the Venezuelan controversy in which
he manifested much interest. Tt was
to the effect that if a war with England
should result the United States "would
not be in it," for if England should offer
§25.00 a month for soldiers our fighting
population would enlist under the
British flag. The expression of such
lofty ideas of the patriotism of the
American people may possibly be pop
ular amoug Populists, but fortunately
a very considerable majority of the
voters in this county prefer to vote for
a man who holds altogether different
views, a man who proved his patriot
ism on the battle fields of the civil war
over thirty years ago, and who would
do it again iv a twinkling should any
similar crisis arise. We understand
that Mr. Hilton is now in Alaska, but
that he is expected to return here the
latter part of October. It is hardly
probable that he fiuds the temperature
in Alaska any colder than he will find
|t here after the third of November.
Silver papers are endeavoring to
make some capital out a letter written
by Prince Bismark to the governor of
Texas in reply to a letter received from
Ute governor stating the financial (jugs
tion in this country and requesting an
opinion from him as to the merits of j
tin-controversy. The old prince Him
ply says that he i« a hituetallist and
that in his judgment the adoption of a
policy of free silver coinage by the
United States would probably hasten j
the adoption of an international agree
ment for free coinage by the leading
commercial nations. He does not say
what la his opinion would be the effect i
upon the United States should it de- j
tlare for free silver in advance of such :
an agreement, and it is very evident j
from his letter that he believes such j
an agreement is essential to the main-:
tenance of silver at a parity with gold, j
Of course he is willing the United
States should try the dangerous ex-j
periment of unlimited independent!
coinage, but he knows better than to
advise it, and there is not the slightest
doubt that his vigorous protest would
be heard if such an attempt were to be
made in Germany. When silver was
"demonetized" there he was the chan
cellor of the German empire, which
his genius had created, the most
trusted and intimate friend of the old
Emperor William and the greatest
statesman in Europe. The act could
not have been passed without his full
approval and support and there is
nothing in his letter to Governoi Cul
berson to indicate that he has changed
his views since then, or that he would
take any different stand today if he were
in the same position. Mr. Bryan is in
straits for campaign matter when he
tries to persuade German Americans
to vote for him on the strength of that
Some ill advised political opponent
of Sheriff Jones is reported as saying
that the expenses of the sheriff's office
under his administration Rave been
considerable greater that they were un
der his Democratic predecessor, Mr.
Thomas. Perhaps the originator of the
story did not mean to emulate Ananias
but whether he did or not his state
ment is widely at variance with the
truth. During the entire term of Mr.
Thomas the total amount of fees turn
ed into the county treasury by him
was only $48.50, and the expenses of
his office, exclusive of Ins own salary,
were §292.35, and the total cost to the
county, deducting the fees collected,
was £1,448,85. The expenses of the of
fice under Sheriff Jones, exclusive of
the sheriff's salary, have been $300 up
to this time, and this amount includes
all the expenses for deputies during the
Straub trial. Mr. Jones has collected
aud paid to the county in fees $299.30,
as against $48.50 during the entire term
of Mr. Thomas, and if he does'nt col
lect another dollar during the remain
der of his term, or find it necessary to
employ any more help, the total ex
pense of the office during his term will
have been only $1200.70, net, or only
seventy cents more than the amount of
his own salary. It will be noted that
those figures show a difference in frivor
of the taxpayers of $243.15 as compared
with the expense of the office, during
the-preceding term. The county has
never had a more efficient or economi
cal sheriff than Newton Jones and
there is not the slightest doubt of his
re-election by a big majority.
Candidate Rogers made a bad
break here in attempting to explain his
opposition to the bill introduced by
Representative Murray to require the
floating of a United States flag over
every school house in the state. He
had evidently forgotten that he was at
the home of the man who introduced
the bill when he said that the incentive
to its introduction of the measure was
"hypocrisy itself." The people of this
county who know Murray know that
he is'nt built that way. He made Mr.
Rogers rather weary the following day
when he explained to him that he in
troduced the bill because a Populist
school teacher in Friday Harbor, who
shortly afterward failed to obtain a
third c^rade certificate, had refused to
hoist the United Stales flag over the
school house here. What most Ameri
can citizens would call patriotism, Mr.
Rogers calls hypocrisy.
There are probably a few citizens of
San Juan county who will support the
Populist candidate for governor, who
believes that the true germ of the mone
tary idea is in a milk ticket", but for
tunately this microbe theory of money
does not commend itself to any con
siderable number of voters in this
