It is a serious question with local democracy whether the old bogie of prohibition will longer serve to keep the Germans of this country in line. It is a fact that over fifty percent of the Germans of Denison are republican. In Hanover and Otter Creek the return to republicanism has been in progrefs for several years uutil there is a very respectable republican minority in each. In Jackson the Germans are nearly all republican and in many other township's there have been large republican gains' among the German American citizens. It is finally dawning upon the Ger mans that they have been asked to pawn the great principles of govern ment for a few petty county offices that do the mass of the people no good, while the enactment of democratic principles wonM do the greatest harm to all. We believe it is safe to say that no people were better satisfied wife the de feat of BTyaa than svere the German democrats of this county. Neverthe less they Voted for him and have al lowed their party to be dominated by a coterie of radicals and silver republic ans. As a result of their easygoing dispo sition they find themsel-es gradually being crowded cut even of the coonty offices. iiut this is beside the "point:. The possession of a few county offices lucre or less should not count incastiug-one's vote in a great national election v.-hich is to decid? the fate of the nation for the next four years at least. The Germans admits st itemec of the "Bismark stripe. They want men who accomplish results, men of effort, cfj back-bone, of strenueaity, if you please, There is nothing weak or vacilteting in German character. They are little giv-n to doing things for the saKe of "policy" alone, Thus while they diet not agree with Bryan's radicalism they •c mid at least admire his fearlessness. The wibbly-wabbly policyshi.i) of Par ker can fill them onlv with dkgust and distrust. Measured by the Bismark standard Parker rattles like a dried pea in a quart cup Germans like straight forwardness, but Parker democracy is confessedly trying to trim and to be on al! sides of all questions. The Germans a?e opposed to ate greed but they corpor. ow O Iff Bismarkian policy f".i which the repub lican party stand? and on whicb the democratic candidate dares not speak unequivocally and on which the demo cratic platform is silent. that that direction and that since the of Judaa Iscariot and Grover 'Cleveland no more un.quitaus bargain and sale was ever made than that by which David 15. Hill sold democracy to August Belmont and John 0. Rocke feller. Again, protection is a German as well as an American policy. Bismark was a protectionist pnd it was this me sure that built tip the Gerauan em re more than did the successful war wit a France. Sound money is another There Is no reason why the Germa-s of Iowa should not stand with the Geimans of Illinois and Wisconsin and Missouri in supporting the republi can ticket. We are frequently told by influential Germans of this county that they in tend voting the republican ticket but wish 10 keep the mutter quiet for fear of oft'end ng their neighbors If they would but come out boldly this year they would find that many of their neighbors had but. been waiting for them to take ttin lea and that they too were ready jo gob^.ctf to t'tu-'i! old home iii ilie repnuiiv-an i*v!y This is the right year to get on the right side, to tep'vliate free silver and aid the cowards vrli3 iLii'p not oppose it, to say 1 no' to the Hill-Belmont- Cleveland combine of corruptionists and to come out frankly and boldly fo Theodore Ro.sevclt the Bismark of America. A Bismark tempered by American institutions, not a tyrant in any sense but a leader, fearless and true, sound to the core, a doer of deeds not a dream er of dreams, a representative of those sound principles of government which have made both Germany and America great. THE REVIEW would be the last to stir up «ttn:e among 1he people of this county along race or national lines. We have always held to the individual standard of.measurement or men. We would therefore repudiate any desire to align the German-Americans agaitst the Irish-Americans or any other kind of Americans. The Bulletin has, how ever, seen fit to call repeated attention to what it-not THE REVIEW—is pleas ed to c°ll the "Dutch-Irish" alliance. This so-called alliance reminds as -of feat pathetic verse: '•There once was & lady of Niger, Who smiled as she rode on a tiger, They returned from their ride With the lady inside And the smile cn the face of the ti ger"- With O'Connev. Collins, McKiso and Holland we have no wonder that the Irish-American tiger weal's a smile, or that tbe German-Americans have every reason to believe that they are very much-on the inside. Mr. O'Conaor has bolted the demo cratic ticket so many times that he can blauac no one if they follow his exam ple. ''x^Ws rW/i'l •Crawford county republicans-ave par ticularly fortunate in securing bon. •Salter i. Smith to address the county •coaventicr. next Friday. Mr. Smith is •one of the brainiest Mien of Iowa. As an orator he is incisive. logical and «?lo ytieut. We can promise a rare treat fur al! v.'ko come to hear him The "star chamber" .conferences 0i 'the democrats never include c.'hers than JDenisonites. Perhaps? that is why the democratic: ring is so heartily ha'.-d .throughout the county. Just in order to mal good feeling -aver the county -the board of supervis ors has recently ordered the treasurer ]"to withdraw a«i ::onnty funds from banks outside of Denison. While »ve believe the county lands should be care full safe-guarded, v.-e do not -ee that the iepuulicaos and -Roosevelt town ic ttie county. Will Mr. Holland have doLe all that has beer, done in:' please tell us bow-he stands or. th I matte*- and whether the action of the board was timed with a view to helping has been done itiij please they are anv safer iti a sound Deniso:: batik than in a *ound bank at Charter a k, Svh'eswig, Manilla or any ot'ne- out-the court house proposition or not',' The great landslide of independent •voters-so which the democrats coun'ed •for the election of Parker has failed to materialize and Parker stock is xoing lower -every day. He fails to please •either the gold democrats or the Bryan ites. Already Indiana is conceded to the republicans and Roosevelt's election is regarded as a certainty.
