Vol. 1, No. 279 Chicago,. Saturday, Aug. 17, 1912 , One Cent
There is only one thing 'for the new Progressive party to do
about a county ticket, and that is tp nominate one from top to bot
tom, and give the people a chance at a new deal all the way through,
from president down to the tail of' the ticket. , . '
There should be no connection whatever between the new party,
and the old Republican party, which is deaderthan a salt mackerel.
The policy of The Tribune and News of trying to hitch the Re
publican ticket onto the BulhMoose is to save" their candidates on
the Republican ticket, and thus keep their grip -on 'Cook" county;
politics. - ' x ' -
- A Bull Moose county ticket gives the progressives in both old
parties a chance to get together and lick, not. only all the apolitical
" bossesbut the newspaper, bosses as well. And that's just what Chi
cago and Cook county need'more than; anything else.
Noboby in' the Progressive party need be afraid of the news
papers. Their influence this year will be less than ever before in
their history." The people have learned the newspaper trust'swcon
nection with government in the interest oi their advertisers and
Special Privilege; and the people will not longer take orders from
the newspaper bosses.
If the new party means anything at all, it means restoring all
government, national, state, county and city, to the people them
selves, and kicking all kinds of Dosses clear outdoors:. If it doesn't
mean that, it Isn't worth fighting for.
To be successful,- the Progressive party must be one in which
honest- voters, vrithout regard to past party affiliation, can work
together for 'good government in the interest of the people; arid it
must be a party for patriotic Democrats as well as patriotic Re
publicans. In demanding th'af no third county ticket be nominated, The
Tribune and News prove that they are not interested in the success
, pi theneyiparjtyi but that .they faypr. the national J3ull Moose ticket.
