Why a German Paper Flopped
THE SITUATION EXPLAINED.
A Newspaper Manager Who Wanted
Money and Falling to Get tt From the
Democratic Committee, He Went to the
Republican Camp Mr. Cable's Explana
tion of the State of Affairs.
The republicans hare been making a
good deal of noise over the state, be
cause Tageblatt, a German publication,
had become a republican newspaper.
Congressman Ben T. Cable says that the
Tageblatt became a republican newspa
per because the proprietor was refused
money at the democratic national head
quarters. "Sometime ago the gentleman who
controls the Tageblatt called at my of
fice," said Mr. Cable to a News reporter,
"and made a demand for a certain sum
of money as the price of his allegiance to
the democratic party. I told him frank
ly that we had no money .for any such
purpose. He grew warm at my answer,
and said: 'Well, in that case I shall go
to the republican headquarters; I can ob
tain money there.' I told him that was
none of my concern, and he left. Since
the Tageblatt changed its policy I have
been informed by a member of the repub
lican committee that its proprietor has
received campaign funds in acknowledge
ment of his services."
Mr. Cable said that this incident was a
comDlete history of the connection of tte
Tageblatt with the western headquarters.
The democratic manager's experience
with the newspaper proprietor is one
phase of the excitement among politicians
in regard to the Oergam Lutheran vote.
The democratic leaders were hopeful yes
terday that the defection would soon be
ended. On the other hand the republi
can leaders asserted it was just begin
ning and would shortly be of universal
As another evidence of the drift to
ward republicanism they announced that
a Bohemian daily newspaper, the Denni
HIasatel, had left the democratic party
and joined the republicans. To offset
this the German Lutheran school com
mittee authorized the publication of a
statement repudiating the action of the
Germania and Tageblatt. It will be pub
lished in the German Lutheran school
committee's official organ, the Zeitblaeter,
in this week's issue and will be circulated
broadcast turoughout the state.
The statement is as follows:
'We Stand Firm.
"If those who have the success of re
publicanism in Illinois more at heart
than liberty of conscience and educa
tional progress deserve any praise what
soever it is only because they are ener
getic and sleepless in promoting the in
terests of their party. In selecting wea
pons to use against us in the school con-,
troversy they have not been particular so
long as they hoped some of the weapons
would injure our cause. Without any
hesitation they spread the report that the
German-Lutheran school committee was
about to sell out to the republican party,
going so far even as to assert that some
of our members had repented and
gone back to the only 'true
party. Efforts have been made
to find some reason which would
make tnese calumnies seem probable. The
fact that certain small newspapers in
this state sold out to the republican par
ty was not sufficient warrant for them to
dare to make such odious assertions. It
was only within the last few days when
the news was spread abroad that the Mil
waukee Germania bad changed its policy
and offered its services to the republican
party for a great sum of money or other
consideration that these leaders spread
the rumor that the German-Lutheran
committee and its official organ, the
Zeitblaetter, .were about to repent and
admit the hopelessness of undertaking to
oppose the republican party. It was ap
parently thought that if only the right
kind of means wsre used the rebellious
Germans would be as little dangerous as
"When Frederick the Great heard that a
libelous pamphlet bad been printed
about him and posted in public places he
gave orders that tt should be hung lower
so that everybody could read it. We
know of nothing better to give our
friends for consideration than to repub
lish what has been said about them.
"Today Lutherans stand man to man
as firmly as they did when the manifesto
of May 6 was issued. Whoever says
that we German-Americans do not value
civil and religious liberty as the highest
and noblest of treasures; whoever thinks
that we are only great with our mouth
and small in our actions; whoever thinks
that we shall not stand together and
fight to the bitter end, is mistaken
Whenever we baye to make choice be
tween loyalty to party and loyalty to
high principles it will not be difficult for
us to choose. Tbpse who are weak and
have not faith in right principles may
fail and desert the cause, but for us the
path we have chosen is ours to the end."
