LETTER FROMG.W. PERRINE.
Comes to the Defense of Mr, Neill
Editor Gazette: Will you grant me
space in your valuable paper that I may
say a few words in defense of my friend
Thomas Neill, who. as all know, is a
candidate for superior judge of this
I h-ive known Mr. Neill for about 12
years, hove been intimately acquainted
with him the past seven years, and have
always found him a gentleman, a man
of honor and sterling integrity, and I
believe no man in Whitman county is
more eminently fitted for the high office
to which he aspires than he is.
It is only in a spirit of fairness that I
wi«h to stiy a few words in his defense,
as there eeeme to be an impression in
the inittdd of some that he made a false
statement when he said he ''had uotbeen
a member of any political party for the
past six years."
Now, there is no doubt that Mr. Neill
is not a member of the socialist party,
and is not reccgrized by the organiza
tion as a member. Before one can be
come a member of the socialist party he
must sign a declaration that he has sev
ered his connection with all other parties,
and to remain a member he must pay
monthly dues of 25c. Xo one who has
not paid his dues for a stated period can
vote in a convention of the socialist
party, nor can he be nominated as a
socialist, and if nominated the party
will not recogniie his claim. Further
more, no person holding official position
cot the gift of the socialist party can be
In 19UC a mass convention was held
in the court house in Colfax and a
county ticket nominated called the
socialist ticket. I had the honor of call
ing this convention, and while we knew
it was not regular, as at that time there
was no organization of the bocialist
party in the county, and but few dues
paying members, we nominated a full
county ticket, Mr. Neili's name was
placed on the ticket for prosecuting at
The state organization repudiated this
convention and ticket, and refused to
recognize it because Pome of its candi
dates, including Mr. Neill and myself,
were not members of the socialist party.
Mr. Neill has never denied that he be
lieves in the principles of scientific social
ism, and lam pure he will not. Few
men who have etudied these principles
can honestly cay they do not believe in
them, but many believe the time is not
ripe to put them into practice.
Mr. Neill, therefore, is absolutely right
when he says he is now non partisan,
being a member of no political party

After reading the public statement of this

you must come to this exclusion: A remedy
which cured years ago, which has kept the
kidneys in good health since, can be relied

was afflicted with kidney complaint and some
time, was laid up for days. There were acute
pains in the small of my back and I had
sharp, shooting twinges through my loins and
limbs. As time passed, my condition grew
worse and during the past fifteen years I had
to get up at nights to pass the kidney secre
tions, Doan's Kidney Pills gave me relief
and I desire to make the fact known for the
benefit of other kidney sufferers. I am ex .
tremely grateful for what this remedy has"
done for me." (Statement given November
