IS A BAD PLIGHT The Campaign
That of the ' Miller Mouthpiece
in Fourth Ward
RELATIVE MERIT OF NOMINEES
PreTftrfcating Abaut One fa Interest
of Another It Had Already
When a nepajer attacks a candi
date for oHice. especially if it deliber
ately prevaricates about him in the
hope of working- him injury, it shouLl
be in a position to offer to tho.e whom
it s-eeks to prejudice a man more en
titled to their support, or at least
their respect. The I nion is now devot
ing itself to misstatements concerning
.John I. Sexton, the democratic can
didate for alelt-ruiau in the Fourth
ward. Apart from the fact that the
impression it seeks to create that Mr.
Sexton is in some way representing'
Looiiey in the present campaign a
fact that has been absolutely dis
proven to the satisfaction of the
strictly ji nti-I.ooney democrats not
only in the Fourth ward, but all over
the city, who certainly are as much
interested in the matter as the I'nion
is what has the moi'iiing- paper to
olfer in the way of a candidate to
tho.-e whom it would unjustly preju
dice. The endeavors of the "I'nion
miht come with some prospect of
commanding respect or consideration.
if it had taken to the woods on the
Fourth ward aMcrmanic question. lint
instead it is seeking by its njisrt-ji-resentation
of Mr. Sexton to win votes:
for the candidate on the republican
ticket, whose nomination is due en-1:ie-lv
to I,i i:iicv's personal efforts.
For this statement of the case we have
the Union it.-eif, as well as the author
ity of a vast number of the respect
able republicans of the ward. A
week aro in an extended and al
together fair editorial discussion of
the part l.ooney had been playing in
the affairs of both parties in the city,
and in speaking more particularly of
the manner in which through the fail
ure of the better element of the party
in the Fourth ward to attend the cau
cus. J.ooney had carried the day for
the police candidate- for alderman,
the I'nion said: "All the factions
could h:ie united on the candidacy of
Mr. I'aridon for alderman, l.ut the av
erage good eitien was conspicuous
mainly by his absence. We hae been
reliably informed that not more than
l." or VM) voters from the sccon I pre
cinct of the ward participated in the
election. In con.-eouence he was bea
ten by the floaters of the tirst pre
cinct, and a man was placed in noini
nati n whose best friends cannot say
that there- i anything in his pe-rsonal-ity
or re-cord to ceimmctid him t' t he
consideration eif the prop-rty holders
of the- ward.""

The man of w liom the- I'nion spoke
at the- time- re f e-rre-d to in the- eiie-stiou
as one "whose- be-.-t frienels cannot
say that t he-re is anything in his pe-r-M'liality
e.r receirtl to e-eunme-nd him to

ers ef the ward." is the- same- Tom

ca mpaig n.
The e-mba rra.-sing prcdicann-iit in
which the- morning pape-r thus finds
itself, is due to the fae-t that at the
time the e.litorial was written e!e--uoiine-ing

people generally, weiulel be substitut
