In truth It was neither a Democratic
nor a Republlcan convention. It was
a convention of bosses and their stri
kers, neither more nor less. Politictlal
pioposltions and principles were no
more considered in that body than the
course of the stars or the motions of the
tides. The so called primaries, from
which this so-called convention
spruung, were simply a trial of strength
between rival bosses on the issue of
bow or between whom the city swag
was to be apportioned.
The Democratic party had nothing
to do with the K-called election. The
will mad wishes of the taxpayers and
industrisl classes of this city had no
hearing, weight or consideration in
th .oting. The whole thing was

will run the office solely and simply as

bh We, the executive committee ap
t pointed by the late immigration con
i vention to execute its will, have deem
to ed proper to issue this address to the
to people Interested in securing Immigra
m tion to our State.
ie Many circumstances contribute to
of render this as opportune time to turn
the tide of immigration from the bleak
N3orthwest to this more favored coun
It fry. Four partial failures of crops in
111 the West, followed by an unusual
Id severe winter, have directed the atten
id tion of these people to this more favor-.
- ed country, and it is confidently be
es lieved that if our people really desire
10 immigration, and will contribute a
rereasonable amount to be used toin pub
lishing and disseminating information,
ot and will give options upon such lands
le as they desire to. sell at reasonable
ad prices to the real estate agents, herein
ae efter named, that a large Immigration
ol will be directed into our midst. With
r- out the hearty cooperation of the peo
ple who have lands for sale, but little
can be done. It rests with you to
to make the movement a success or per
id mit it to fail. We therefore ask all
to who feel an interest in this movement,
in and all police Juries, banks, commer
01 cial bodies and corporations, to con
id tribute as much money as they can
fe and as early as possible, which amounts
Id they can hand to any of the agents
