DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN HAS GONE TO SMASH Cutting and Slashing by Can didates Has Its Inevitable Effect EBY KNIFES WELLS Rubendall Deserts All but Dan ner; McCormicks Pass Up Fritchey With the election only a few days off the whole Democratic campaign in Dauphin county has gone to smash. The effects of weeks of cutting and slashing by individual candidates has had its inevitable effect. The Demo cratic organization is not for the whole ticket and the various little bosses are each working for their own favorite little combinations. For instance, there Is Eby, candi date for re-election as county com missioner, who is playing a "lone hand," going it alone in his own he half and letting the remainder of the ticket slide. Sheriff Wells is supposed to be his colleague on the ticket for county commissioner, but Eby has been doing all in his power to take votes away from Wells, and on the other hand Wells has been just is active in his own behalf, with the effect that the Democratic strength is divided over these two offices. Knife Kadi Otlior Wells has admitted in a number of Instances that only one county com missioner can be elected by the Demo crats this year and he is urging his own record as sheriff as a reason why he should be the man. One Demo cratic newspaper is urging Wells openly and doing its best to defeat Eby. Another is boosting Eby and is silent on Wells. Ko it goes in the conimissionership light. Rubendall, vice-county chairman of the Democratic party, whose official position should require him to be for the whole ticket, has openly deserted all the nominees but Danner, the Democratic candidate for register, ex cept in districts where the personal popularity of other candidates might help Danner. He hns made all sorts of combinations and is ready to make more. Rubendall wants Dinner re elected because the Democratic bosses have thrown him down for the post mastership of Halifax and he is anxious to retain his position as deputy register in case Dunner goes back to that office. Mct'ormicks I'ass l"p Fritehey Dr. O. Albert Fritehey is another candidate who is getting no support from the wing of the Democratic party which is in control of the local organ ization. Fritehey will be knifed by the McCormick faction for the reason that in McCormick circles no oppor tunity for the Fritcheys to get back into power is looked on with favor. That this is true may be re-called from the fact that McCormick refused to stand for Fritehey as postmaster of llarrisburg when Fritehey could have i had the job if he had been able to I get the McCormick endorsement. The Kimkcl <>11:1 i' The early endorsement of Michael f E Stroup as district attorney by the Patriot, recognized as the mouthpiece i! of the Democratic organization here, L | and that newspaper's subsequent sup j port of Kunkel at the polls is also (coming back to haunt the Democrats, j many voters wanting to know if i Stroup was in such high favor two ,! years ago why he is now being op -1 posed for re-election. I Another irritating feature of the | campaign from the Democratic view ; point in the fall-down of the Demo cratic poor board, which yesterday , admitted that it had already exhausted its appropriation for the year and had to have SB,OOO to keep it out of debt for the remainder of 1915. The Demo cratic candidates are sore over the blunder that caused this deficit to be made public just on the eve of the election, asserting that it will lose hundreds of voters for the fusion gang's candidates next Tuesday. On the other hand, the Republican candidates are campaigning together and all is harmony within the Re publican ranks. Last night the nominees spoke at a big meeting in the Capital City Republican Club and this evening they will be in the upper • end of the county, attending rallies 1 at Millersburg, Killinger and Gratz. ! Monday evening they will go as a '■ party to Williamstown where the cam ■ paign will be brought to a close with 1 a big meeting. % All of them were confident to-day 1 of a bigger majority for the whole ■ i ticket than was piled up last year, I when the county went Republican by i nearly 5,000.
