Sous to Dawn,
VJemember that it is one tiling to

\V f;.,r lovely times the republi
cs!.s had their primaries at Seat
£> ->t "viiurday. It is only the
t have disturbances at
skieir ■>> according to the
3&*.>to.ratic press, but that disgrace
ful affair at the republican prima
ry at Seattle, double discounts any
thing occurring at Populist conven-
S»>ns so far.
The other day we heard a man
say he would vote his old party
ticket straight if a yellow dog was
on it. Poor deluded creature. He
occupies about the same relation to
ius party that a tin can does tied to
x dogs tail and the dog running a
loag the street yelling, with the can
occasionally striking the ground or
something else, causing it to give
& small noise, but all th& time
sirnging to the dog's tail and going
*here the dog goes.
Such a man has sold his inde
pendence, his manhood, for politi
cal prejudice, It is just such blind
followers after party, that enables
>sia machine politician and ring
aterto thrive and fatten at the ex
pense of honest men.

Come out and assert your man

Tbk following ticket haß been
prepared by the ring for the conven
tion to nominate to-day:
Auditor: —8. T. Sterling—has
been an office seeker in the republi
can party ever 6ince he came to this
valley. Politically A In J. M. Ready,
with whom he joined forces to se
cure office in the Populist party.
Treasurer: —J. C. Ellison —an
honest worker in the Populist cause
but has been used as a cats-paw by
the ring.
Sheriff: —W. M. Stfnson —a
Populist who wants office, belongs
to the ring, admits Ready is no
Populist, but says we cannot afford
to offend him—it would hurt the
party. Ley Wynegar to be his de
Vincent —will be nominated be
cau«e the ring has no lawyer in
their crowd —wants an office.
Clerk: —Harry Eld red—-a demo
crat; announced himself a candidate
for office concurrent with his join
ing the People's party, wants office
bad—member of the ring.
Scnooi, Supt:—Vacant—no one
in the ring with sufficient educa
tion to fill the position.
Assessor: —Howard Masteraon.
Commissioner, Dist. No. 2:—Sam
Packwood —democrat, went into the
first Populist county convention
two years ago but could not control
it, went back to the democratic par
ty and was nominated for repre
sentative, but was defeated at the
polls—formed a combination with
J. M. Ready and the A. P. A. and
hopes to secure office in the Popu
list party.
Representatives:—Jacky Lewis
of lloslyn —Norton'sppert r a coal
miner, that is the extent of his
qualifications for the office,
S. W. Greene —democratic bag of
wind and member of the ring.
Like Eldred, announced himself
for office when he came( ?) into the
paty. His conduct at the South
Ellensburg primary shows what
kind of a man he is.
Gentlemen, what do you think
of the the animals to be on exhibi
tion to-day, Sept. Bth.
Nothing to Arbitrate,
The Pullman Palace Car Co.,
paid dividends as follows*
1890, *2,298,131;. 1891, $2,989,
223; 1892, $3,250389; 1893, $2,
800,000, A regular annual divi
dend of 8 per cent has been paid,
besides extra dividends, the last one
amounting to $2 per share and was
paid August 15, 1894, since the
strike. Such is robbery.
Are tin Hctits ii tard to-Daj?
Ai we have paid before, there are
A lot of unscrupulous wire pulling
politicians in the ranks of the Popu
list party who are there from pure
ly personal motives, they care noth
ing for reform, but are working for
the loaves and fishes.
They have striven for years to se
cure something in their old party
but were TOO CORRUPT and ROT
TEN to even receive recognition
tlierc. They have been employing
the same methods in the People's
party and with the aid of the A. P.
A. organization, some of them are
in a fair way to seeure a nomina
tion- When a man has not been in
a party long enough to get his po
litical chair warmed before he com
mences working for an office, it is
about time honest reformers were
We believe that ninety-five per
cent of the Populists are true and
honest, and most of the recent con
verts sincere reformers, but when a
man announces himself a candidate
at the same time he says he is a
Populist, you may rest assured he
id a reformer for boodle.
Some of our loudest mouthed re
formersf:?) were but recently promi
nent workers in either the demo
cratic or republican parties.
What assurance have we that
they are not wolves in sheep's
clothing,, pretending reform that
they may defeaf the Populist party.
If they had shown by their acts
that they were true reformers, we
would have nothing to say, but they
are not capable of comprehending
the meaning of the term reform, it
is so foreign to their makeup.
The very first thing th«y do is
to try and dictate to old reformers
how the party should be run and
who shall be candidates.
They proceed to form a ring, se
lect the candidates and select them
from the A. P. A. too.
If the people—the honest voters
—have a voice in selecting the can
didates, we will be successful in
November, but if the ring and the
A. P. A. run the convention to-day,
and nominate 3 ticket as they have
indicated, defeat awaist us.
A true Populist has no business
in the ring or its ally the A. P. A.
No true Populist can support an
A. P. A. man for office, so take war
ning about what you intend doing
to-day. Your members are known,
notwithstanding, the obligation
each takes not to reveal the raamis
of thosp who fre members.

One (lay last week while one of
our prominent republican citizens
was reclining in his easy chair,
the great financier of this bustling'
burg happened along. After the>
usual greetings, oar republican
friend asked: "how's politics?"
Then the financier spread him
self and was heard to say: "I say
Mr. ; do you know any reason
why I should not be a delegate from-
-precinct to the republican Co.,
convention?" Why, no said the
republican. "Ara you a believer
of republican doctrine and do you
believe in its principles?"
u Oh no," said the financier, "I
am % freetrader, and don't balieve
in the republican doctrine and haTe
no- sympathy with them, but don't
you know I've a friend I want to
help to get the nomination for office
and I thought I might get in just
to help him, don't you know."
C&pt. J. H. May of Island coun
ty, will address the citizens of Ell*

at 7:30 p. m. Everybody invited.

Answer* Ready came to this
State in 1887, and has been on of
fice seeker ever since. He came
here as a republican, but left(?) the
republican party because he could
not get the nomination for State
Senator. His political record since
he came here has been anything but -
what an honest man would admire.
